Obama To Attend Pro-Islamist Conference Obama will visit Turkey between April 6-7 to attend an annual forum of the Alliance of Civilizations in Istanbul, Spanish diplomatic sources said on Monday.  Turkey’s president said Tuesday Obama's planned visit was very important.  Obama will attend the second annual forum of the U.N.-led Alliance of Civilizations initiative, co-chaired by Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan and his Spanish counterpart Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.

The Global Muslim Brotherhood Report describes the Alliance of Civilizations as an organization which is represented in the U.S. and Europe by individuals sympathetic to the global Muslim Brotherhood.  According to the AOC website, the AOC "High Level Group Members" in the U.S. and Western Europe are: Prof. John Esposito (United States), Rabbi Arthur Schneier (United States), Hubert Védrine (France), and Karen Armstrong (United Kingdom)

Esposito is an apologist for the radical Islamist movement;

Impugning those who equate Islamist movements "with radicalism and terrorism," Esposito claims that such thinking merely "becomes a convenient pretext for crushing political opposition."  Islamist movements, he explains, "are not necessarily anti-Western, anti-American, or anti-democratic."  Moreover, he minimizes the fact that those nations that have adopted Islamic law are, for the most part, totalitarian states that export terrorism and egregiously violate the human rights of their inhabitants. " Contrary to what some have advised," he writes, "the United States should not in principle object to implementation of Islamic law or involvement of Islamic activists in government."

In fact all of the attendees above are apologists of either the radical Islamist movement or to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The question is why is the US Commander of Chief of a War on Terrorism attending a conference that supports a radical Islamist point of view?

Transnational Legal Process Judges should interpret the Constitution according to other nations' legal "norms."  Sharia law could apply to disputes in US courts.  The United States constitutes an "axis of disobedience" along with North Korea and Saddam-era Iraq.

Those are the views of the man on track to become one of the US government's top lawyers: Harold Koh.

President Obama has nominated Koh -- until last week the dean of Yale Law School -- to be the State Department's legal adviser.  In that job, Koh would forge a wide range of international agreements on issues from trade to arms control, and help represent our country in such places as the United Nations and the International Court of Justice.

It's a job where you want a strong defender of America's sovereignty.  But that's not Koh.  He's a fan of "transnational legal process," arguing that the distinctions between US and international law should vanish.

This is the URL for the White House website:

On the main page of the White House website are a bunch of pictures featuring Obama.  FReeper PghBaldy was curious and checked the "Properties" of the images -- all of them are stored in the "assets" folder and contain the word "hero" in their filename.  Check 'em out:
NY Times Spiked Obama-ACORN Story A lawyer involved with legal action against Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) told a House Judiciary subcommittee on March 19 The New York Times had killed a story in October that would have shown a close link between ACORN, Project Vote and the Obama campaign because it would have been a "a game changer."

Heather Heidelbaugh, who represented the Pennsylvania Republican State Committee in the lawsuit against the group, recounted for the committee what she had been told by a former ACORN worker who had worked in the group’s Washington, D.C. office.  The former worker, Anita Moncrief, told Ms. Heidelbaugh last October, during the state committee’s litigation against ACORN, she had been a "confidential informant for several months to The New York Times reporter, Stephanie Strom."

Ms. Moncrief had been providing Ms. Strom with information about ACORN’s election activities. Ms. Strom had written several stories based on information Ms. Moncrief had given her.

During her testimony, Ms. Heidelbaugh said Ms. Moncrief had told her The New York Times articles stopped when she revealed that the Obama presidential campaign had sent its maxed-out donor list to ACORN’s Washington, D.C. office.

Ms. Moncrief told Ms. Heidelbaugh the campaign had asked her and her boss to "reach out to the maxed-out donors and solicit donations from them for Get Out the Vote efforts to be run by ACORN."

Ms. Heidelbaugh then told the congressional panel:

"Upon learning this information and receiving the list of donors from the Obama campaign, Ms. Strom reported to Ms. Moncrief that her editors at The New York Times wanted her to kill the story because, and I quote, "it was a game changer."
