Imam Fiesal Abdul Rauf was caught diverting donor funds to fund his lavish lifestyle. Coupled with the fact he lied about his Non Profit status to cheat on his taxes of 2009, 2010 and 2011.
Can anyone say Vindication? You think I’ll receive any apologies from Obama , Bloomberg, Anthony Weiner or the rest of the Nation who supported the Ground Zero Victory Mosque? I don’t think so but that’s OK just knowing the truth came out was enough for me. Here it is a couple of years later I had the honor of defending the heroes that were lost that day by creating the 911 Hard Hat Pledge. After the Community Board voted the project thru we had one last option to go about legally halting it and that was thru the Landmark’s Department. The building that they were proposing for demolishon was the Burlington Coat Factory. This was over a 100 years old and had a Palazzo design that was quite rare and already had been on the docket for 20 years for landmark status. When I attended the vote downtown and I heard one commissioner after another vote to wipe out this building of great American history I reminded these Bloombots that the Burlington Coat Factory was the actual 1st strike of the 911 attacks and that alone should have merited Landmark status….but these mayoral appointed drones did as they were told and voted it down.
I was destroyed. How can they build on the ashes of my Jody? In an act of desperation I phoned into the most popular radio talker known to man…Rush Limbaugh. In a divine act I get through!!! I tell the call screener I am Andy Sullivan the founder of the 911 Hard Hats and created the 911 Hard Hat Pledge asking all tradesman to pledge not to work this site. Well when the screener said ” Get Ready Andy you are going to be talking to 20 million listeners AND the Big Guy”!!! My heart nearly exploded as I waited in line. When I Heard my name I knew this was for America and my Jody and instantly I became calm and composed.
The rest was history. After that brief appearance I had 200k pledges sign up and suddenly people from all over the world were coming to our protests. I had this cross country tour chasing down Imam Rauf as he called me all sorts of awful names with terrible accusations. I was probably the only person ever to walk into a CAIR event with my Hard Hat covered with our Twin Towers saying NO MOSQUE at Ground Zero. The police showed but they didn’t need to. I had them and they knew it. BTW this happened in Dearborn Michigan. The most Muslim populated state in the nation. This would not stop this kid from Brooklyn. I’m actually running for City Council in my district and once again I got the opposition on the run.
They are great side stories as well. I love the fact Rauf and Gamal the man who claims to be so devote frequents prostitutes and was jailed for beating a man into the hospital was also shown what a deceiver he was. What a nice pair of fellas. My beef was never with peaceful Muslims I respect them and work with many but to have this one exposed is extra sweet. God is Good.
Where are the WOMEN??? After this disgusting sexual scandal involving one of the nation’s most premier Senators Mr. Menendez where are the legions of women defending these UNDERAGE GIRLS who were prostituted out to men of means. C’mon girls on the View! Whoopi and Joy you should be out there dragging them into the studio and going over all of the bizarre sexual favors these girls were asked to perform on one of our trusted elected officials. The silence is deafening. I can only put this into the category of the Palin Zone.
The Palin Zone: This is a universe where attacking women is encouraged and even looked up to and in some cases promotes one to positions of power and wealth. There is one stipulation- to enter the Palin Zone the perpetrator must be a liberal or the one being assaulted must be Conservative. If either one of these conditions is present you are in the Palin Zone.
The genesis of the Palin Zone manifested during the 2008 elections. When this gun toting, spark plug of a hockey Mom knocked the socks off the entire nation during the RNC Convention speech The delta squad of liberal journalists, writers , bloggers and investigators descended into Wasilla Alaska with one thing on their mind …Destroy this woman at all costs. The distinct advantage liberals have is they have licence to say anything without a scintilla of truth behind it. No matter how hurtful or ugly and untrue it matters not for they are under P- Zone protection.
The list of women grows. After Palin came Michelle Bachmann a 3 term Congresswoman who made a valiant run at the White House who was true to her Conservative values which just solidified her eminent attack. Howard Gutman the Obama Campaign National Finance Committee member actually told Laura Ingraham on her radio Show that regarding Palin ” Your responsibility is to your family first!” As he brought up their newborn son with Down’s Syndrome and her teenage daughter who was pregnant he continued ” she should get out of the public sphere and stay home.!”
This set the stage for Congresswoman Bachmann as she was made fun of insulted, slandered, maligned and awful photos taken of her but what did you expect? Another victim of the Palin Zone. A great woman and loving mother and wife with Conservative values bears the scars of her trip through the Palin Zone.
I make no excuse for these heinous attacks but now we are talking about victims of human trafficking as far as I am concerned and these young girls are victims and someone in the damn Justice Department should be ripping Menendez apart and the Media should be holding this man up as the Pedophile he is.
Where is the justice ? Where are the women?
It seems( God forbid there is a lull in the news cycle ) that every time the media needs a villain or a group to marginalizes the daggers always find its’ way to the heart of the Middle Class. The latest Pot Shot is by far the most absurd: The Graffiti Ground Zero Disgrace. Was this a real story? This one made me really think I was losing it. Are we really considering firing people for what they scribble on a unfinished piece of drywall or plywood? Where are we going with all of this? How much more power do we hand over to the Central Planners? We already have a Delta Force of ” Word Police Agents”. Things you can or cannot say or do are now under siege.
This Mayor of ours has sent a terrible message to fellow New Yorkers. I am the Mayor I am Rich and I know better and don’t give a hoot about some document written over 200 years ago at a time where men wore wigs and a musket was a Right given to us by GOD not man and certainly not by government. I am outraged by the way Bad Behavior is rewarded amongst the elites yet when it comes to the Working Class the bar is much higher and we receive a flogging from the baton of the righteousness. Being a Union construction worker for over 3 decades when I talk about this draconian disparity in the way society judges the working class I most definitely know what I’m talking about. Owning several small businesses, touring the nation with a tool I invented and doing political commentary and interviews at: Blue Collar Corner/ I am not your average Middle Class working Joe.
It is because of this awful treatment the Middle Class receives that made me want to get up and put my hat into the Ring for the NYC Council. This Mayor is following our President’s lead. He is doing things above and beyond his scope and limits of the Constitution. Just as President Obama circumvents Congress Bloomberg simply steps all over the Council with funding or very lucrative appointments turning them into a body of Court Jesters to be easily manipulated. Thank Heavens this is his final term…unless he decides to purchase another which could happen but I hope not.`Either way I really am leery of this particular field of ” would be Mayors” and feel Now more than ever we need a more balanced and active Council that has some voices with a Conservative perspective before they become the Mayor’s Rubber Stamp…again.
Everywhere I look, listen and read it’s the same…a War on the 1st and 2nd Amendments. Face Book and Twitter – 2 Universes of Social Interaction is currently being very active in monitoring and screening a great deal of its’ content and in some cases actually scrub the users comments and kicks them off the board entirely. This action has the stench of a Soviet Union type government not America. You can go back and forth all day long about gun laws and if they work or not but all I know is D.C. and Chicago have the MOST stringent comprehensive gun laws in the nation which to some is admirable except for one thing…they also have the highest rate of gun violence in the nation.
I know for a fact that the ordinary citizen who is not in a private Union is completely unaware of the abject servitude they are in. I know the way Union members are portrayed in the Media and it is very unfair. I condemn ALL acts of violence and thuggery and know full well for Unions to endure they must lose this 1930′s template and break this unholy marriage to the DNC. This is the perfect opportunity for the GOP to score some huge votes and in the process destroy the Democrats strangle-hold on them. This means the Republicans must end this ridiculous feud and draw from this organic field of Conservatives who just need a sign that the GOP is not out to wreck their livelihoods. The effects of such a move would shake the very foundations of the Administration on down.
I would give anything to see Obama’s face when his aides tell him” Sir the Republicans are actually reaching out to the Unions rank n file to petition for representation” now that would be a ” Priceless” moment.
Richard Trumka the President of the AFL-CIO came to power in 2009. He is one of the most power hungry Union officials I have witnessed in my 20 year career as a Union Construction Worker. He extols the virtues of being and representing the ” Working Man” yet he is anything but… the men and women who use their bodies to provide for their families don’t enjoy ANY of the benefits Mr. Trumka does. Here is a man that attacks salaries of CEO’s and is your classic ” Class Warfare Advocate” who makes hundreds of thousands of dollars in salary and lives as good as any CEO of any Blue Chip Company. There is one area where he actually rises above even the most rich and powerful of white collar execs and that is he has the ear of the President of the United States.That said Mr. Trumka is finally beginning to feel the heat. Union numbers are at a 70 year low …that’s about 400k workers who have been forced to look elsewhere due to lack of work caused by 2 factors:
. 1) This Administration has emboldened union leadership by aggressively ruling on their behalf on ALL conflicts. One would think this a good thing but the numbers prove otherwise. The PR generated by all of this blatant union favoritism has backfired and caused a National Backlash causing businesses to look to other entities other than Unions when putting together their Labor Force for fear of intimidation and bullying during contract negotiations with these Union leaders.
2) The Economy has been atrocious. Start-ups who are the # 1 job creators of the Free Market are becoming extinct. This awful state of economic uncertainty has all budget makers befuddled making it impossible to project expenses because no one can forecast the level at where the tax and regulation burdens will strike. Therefore giving investors and entrepreneurs jelly legs when it comes to taking the risk required to be successful. No risk No Reward No Wealth Creation No Labor Force to glean dues , assessments, votes and of course Political Power.
Mr. Trumka is quivering in his 700 dollar shoes. As Union numbers decrease so does his Power. And as any one of us knows there is nothing more humbling than to work your way down the ladder of excess and corruption. Good always rises to win the day and I believe a serious reckoning is afoot.
I will keep repeating to my GOP and Conservatives alike…this is a golden opportunity to break the hold of the DNC on the voting block of Organized Labor. The Rank n File member of ANY Union is 60 to 70% Conservative!! Yes its’ True. It’s just they are frightened to say it out loud. In ALL of my interviews and polling I get the same thing…Andy please don’t tell anyone I’m afraid I’ll lose my job or worse get ” Blackballed”. Therein lies the Hostage situation the Union worker is in. Unless you are part of the Hierarchy you are an indentured servant sentenced to life and told how to think and who to vote for. Is this the country of Lincoln ? I think not.
I will continue to fight these bastards and do it through the legislative as I am victorious in my City Council Run and at the same time bring the GOP kicking and screaming to their solution of becoming relevant in this Obama -Era. I am Andy Sullivan and I will be your next City Councilman.
It seems our Governor has been hanging out too much with Rev Al. Just because the dear Reverend lost weight doesn’t mean he gained any credibility whatsoever in the truth department. This is a man who has destroyed lives and careers so he could pursue his selfish dreams of legitimacy. Here’s a man who has the ear of our Governor and worst of all strolls in and out of the White House with regularity. The President of the United States treats this man with respect he surely does not deserve. This is a man under investigation for tax evasion, links to organized crime, actually threatened to picket the Michael Jackson concert back in 1984 unless the Black Community shared in some of the ” Take ” of the concert which he received a handsome amount in the form of ” Donations” from the promoters to NOT protest the event. Only years later after extorting money from Mr. Jackson he managed to weasel his now frail form to the podium praising how Michael was ” For Us”! That’s funny I don’t remember the good Reverend speaking out in defense of Mr. Jackson when he was accused of pedophilia…go figure. Then there was the misappropriation of charity funds and of course the money donated to the Brawley family somehow managed to also get combined with those funds as well. Yeah, this admitted FBI informant who would rat on his own associates to get his new lean ass out of trouble. Now suddenly adorned with White House ” Cred” Governor Cuomo is looking to get some confirmation from Obama’s U. S African American Ambassador the Great Reverend Al…liar, cheat and most of all Success.
Guns are not the problem it’s our culture. When bad behavior is continually rewarded it inspires us to do bad because if we do we will be handsomely compensated. The whole idea of somehow conflating this useless gun legislation with the memory of a great man like the Reverend Martin Luther King is appalling. Did you know the reason for the first gun laws were to keep guns out of the hands of African Americans? Not only that but MLK applied for a gun permit and was rejected and of course later assassinated. Boy those laws worked like a charm …but for whom? The criminal or the murdered one?
We must stop legislating by emotion and political gain and think about the safety of the nation and its’ children. Punishing the ones who obey the law makes us less safe. Our own prisoners in jail manage to still obtain illegal drugs while being continually incarcerated. What in the name of God makes you think this will stop criminals from getting guns?
As you see in this video directly after the Terrorist Attack in Fort Hood Army base which was actually labeled a work-place act of violence even though Major Nidal Hassan shouted :” Praise be to Allah”. Wounding 30 and murdering 13 unarmed Army personelle.To day as Major Hassan sits comfortably in jail and fights to retain his facial hair in which he has been successful his day of judgement has been continually postponed. No justice for the families of these brave soldiers. There has been other destructive effects as well. The lack of action regarding Acts of Terror has put more American lives in danger.
The entire world has been watching the way this American President handles attacks and his response or lack thereof. The attacks of the embassy in Tunisia or the Al Qaeda flag flying in the new Egypt currently run by Muslim Brotherhood member President Morsi is just a taste of what is yet to come. The disgraceful behavior of this White House and State Department in the aftermath of the Benghazi Attacks have been despicable. No answers or justice for those family members either. Just one dead Ambassador 2 brave Navy Seals and one civilian. Advantage: The Terror Community.
Fast Forward to present day and what do we have? A hostage situation in Algeria with 3 American citizens and dozens of other innocents from other countries. I know this Administration loves to hang their hat on the killing of Bin Laden and try to convince the public that we are winning the war of Terror and Al Qeada is in retreat and tattered. Unfortunately this is not the case. The staggering amount of hypocrisy that is on display as Congressional leaders like Pelosi who condemns Enhanced Interrogations Techniques or Water Boarding as ” Torture” yet supports drone strikes make me want to request a psychological evaluation. So we shouldn’t torture them we should shoot them from the sky murdering innocents such as mothers and children. Which occurred during Obama’s 1st ordered drone strike in Yemen but due to this complicit mainstream media we were only told about the high value tartget.What makes anyone think Iran will not go ahead and start producing nuclear weapons like they have a licence to? This Nation sits on a very precarious perch that is being weakened everyday. Leadership from both an economic and defense standpoint is just atrocious .I cannot imagine the state of the Union at the end of this Commander N Chief’s term…God help us.
Being a Conservative and being a Union Construction worker seems contradictory but it is a lot more common than the ordinary layman would think. Union construction workers in the private sector work very hard for their money and are very reluctant to part with their blood and sweat revenue. Between union dues, assessments, benefits and finally taxes the check of a private union worker is nearly cut in half. Right now there is a great deal of Illegal Immigration employment happening Right Now! Did you know you do not have to show a social security number to the union officials when purchasing a union card? It’s their ” Dirty Little Secret”. What they do is just take the immigrants money give him a union book and hope the employer he gets sent to either accepts a Temporary Tax ID # or doesn’t even bother paying him union wages but instead allows the employer to work him Scab! ( For Cash with No Benefits).
Disgracefully this happens with impunity and the workers don’t protest out of fear of being blackballed. God forbid they go to the National Labor Relations Board. Their fate would be sealed AND there is always the question of one’s safety when dealing with the dark forces that still control a lot of the activity within private unions.This situation might have a solution and might kill 3 birds with one stone. How? Well illegal immigration is a huge problem and has become a wedge issue especially in the last election. Romney only managed 20% to Obama’s 67%. of Latino voters. The GOP will never win another election if this does not change.
My answer is 2 fold. As far as legislation for a Path to Citizenship I would very much support a screened candidate who was currently working or attending school commit to 2 years of military service followed by a 2 year probation period. If they comply with this criteria I think they deserve the right to be a US citizen. This can be a panacea for the GOP and its’ constant drubbing they get from the DNC. By taking this issue off the table NOW they can petition for representation for the Latino lobby on a level playing field.
The 2nd part of this Path to Citizenship GOP Style would be the Republican Party actually competing for representation of leadership within Unions as well! This would be a welcome sign for all of us Republican supporters out there and would send the Democratic Party into a tailspin of panic. Imagine cutting into 2 of their biggest demo graphs this would have such a positive effect on the GOP and its’ imagine I’m sure they would be repaid in votes. Having 2 Party’s soliciting the rank n file for representation automatically makes each Party keep the other one honest. You see this is the Unions greatest weakness…the fact that single party rule fosters corruption and all sorts of acts of malfeasance. No 2 groups have been hurt more than the GOP and Unions these last 2 years and by doing this it would be a great act of redemption and pile the Immigration issue on top of that it’s a Win, Win for the Republican Party. This to me would be the lifeline we need for the Republican Party to be victorious in the next election cycle.
Charles Woods. Anybody recall this man? He got to meet the President , Vice President and even Hillary our soon to be former Secretary of State who has been stricken with some of the most bizarre illnesses in such amazing succession it’s baffling the medical community. It might seem that Hillary has a allergic reaction to any and all inquiries regarding that event that has gone completely off the radar of the MSM but certainly NOT off of Mr Woods’ radar the father of the brave Seal Tyrone Woods. Tyrone was one of the 2 Seals left to fend for himself by the most powerful country on the planet .Dodging mortar fire for almost 8 hours fighting like the warriors that the were eventually they were taken out in a most cowardly and shameful fashion. Not by the enemy but left on their own by the cowards in the State Department. The event was the Benghazi Assassination of our Ambassador Chris Stevens. This has not occurred in over 30 years.
Again I am haunted by the words of our former White House Chief of Staff the reptilian troll Rahm Emanuel. Never let a crisis go to waste. This ethos exists today in spades. Fiscal Cliff, Debt Ceilings, Obamacare, Payroll Tax, Immigration and NOW guns….and how this Administration can disarm the nation. With all of this going on how can the American voter process such heavy issues and policy AND live their lives…impossible. This White House knows this. So they get to pick and choose at their leisure what particular Freedom they might yet again strip from us.
When Bush choked on a Dorito, Kate Middleton had morning sickness, Al Roker regarding his stomach operation followed by him soiling himself in the White House, Katie Couric’s rectal examination that was broadcast on the Times Square jumbo-tron. This is just a mere scratch of the surface and yet we were inundated with endless medical testimony from every blessed healthcare professional with a pulse. Where were these examinations for our Secretary of State with her stomach virus, concussion and now the very delicate clot of the brain supposedly caused by the impact to her head. All of this taking her away from appearing before Congress. What’s puzzling though is where was the stampede of medical experts commenting on her very unstable condition? More of an enigma was You Never treat a brain clot with thinners! but this is what we were told by a lone solitary medical commentary. Also when leaving the hospital in her condition she should of been in a wheelchair but was not. Again, does not add up.
So what would we want answers to? Well for starters what the Hell was Susan Rice doing reporting to 5 news outlets about some completely absurd story about a video being the cause for the Benghazi attack. Or how come after 2 previous attacks in Benghazi so serious that the Red Cross and the UK bailed out because they felt their safety was compromised? Or Ambassador Stevens request for more security who actually stated in the request that Benghazi is now being taken over by Al Qaeda factions and they will not be able to repel an attack on the Embassy if initiated?Why were they denied the security? What did Hillary and the President know and when were they given this information? Why have these questions months later NEVER been addressed or even asked at Presidential Press Conferences? Now we have 4 brave Americans who were able to be saved but instead were left to die by the most powerful country in the world.
I think most people who know me or who read my writings know that I’m no conspiracy theorist. Sure sometimes it’s intriguing but I need facts when putting together analysis and commentary. I’m sure you all know I am NO fan of this Administration and call them out on the carpet when I think our rights are being trampled. Well this is by far more shocking than anything that I have witnessed since Obama and his Attorney General Eric( We are a Nation of Cowards ) Holder have begun their shredding of the Constitution. We know Holder’s stance on guns and how he would prefer nothing more than to disarm the public and banish the Second Amendment. Unfortunately this is not the only Amendment in the crosshairs. The First Amendment - Free Speech our most powerful and treasured of ALL the Amendments is currently under siege.
I will not waste your time with my writing but please keep this in mind when viewing this shocking video-This is a Trial Balloon. They want to see if they will incur any blowback from the American public or will they be able to scare us into surrender! Friends please if this goes on without any feedback not only will it continue with greater frequency but this Para- Military Raid tactic will eventually be able to confiscate not only our Guns but our property and Bank Accounts. Yes …the End of the United States as we know it. I implore to ALL Democrats, Republicans and others- we have an obligation to write, call , e-mail even demonstrate in front of the Halls of Power. This is exactly why we have elected officials and right now we need them more then ever.
“It’s better to Die on your feet than to live on your knees” Emiliano Zapata.
I am sick and tired of these imbeciles who are incredibly good looking and know how to act trying to tell me what’s best for me and my family. They are so desperate for attention not all the exposure from all of the media they do is enough for them. So what do they do? They inject their opinion into the public conversation. Of course because of their ” Celebrity Status ” they are given all of this coverage they crave and we the public are bombarded by their idiocy. In today’s political climate it is never been more prevalent. The reason for this is this President. Evidently Obama is considered the ” Cool” President. His hard left ideology plays right into the wheelhouse of these Hollywood fools and unfortunately we have to hear and see their moronic displays of political insight.
Enough!! Clooney, Russell Simmons, Rosanne Barr, Jon Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Moore and ALL of you Super-Rich Megalomaniacs – Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. Where the Hell do you come off talking about policy? No one has benefited from this Nation more then you, you greedy narcissistic bastards. It’s because of your Egos that we have the most destructive man to occupy the White House in our country’s history. He is killing the very Freedoms that made it possible for you A….Holes to be successful. You don’t give a damn about your fellow citizens. All your concerned about is seeing yourself next to this Freedom Killer.
If I thought for a second any of you were sincere I would respect your opinion but because of the level of Hypocrisy I cannot. Jon Bon Jovi….you rail on about the rich paying their fair share yet between your team of accountants and lawyers you loophole your way through 100′s of thousands of Real Estate tax breaks because You’re a Bee Farmer?! Same goes for YOU Boss! Yeah Springsteen’s team must’ve got word from their Blood-sucking legal department about the Bee Farmer clause in the New Jersey Tax Law because their exploiting it as well. How about Mr. Russell Simmons? Yeah this guy goes down to Occupy Wall Street like he’s down with the 99% yet he’s worth 325 million dollars. He has this insanely high credit card service that preys on poor bastards like these people and he has the audacity to come down and march with them like he’s one of them?!
Michael Moorer, you are probably the most reprehensible of all. The way you talk about young people who have served in our military or the hard working blue collar community that you claim to be on the side of is blatantly self- serving. During the OWS protests you like Simmons are part of the elite you are demonizing. These limo liberals don’t give a damn about anyone or anything but themselves. They don’;t care about policy because of their wealth and resources they are not really subject to anything that would alter their ” Rock Star” lifestyle. So instead we become the victims of their hurtful Freedom Stealing boneheaded policies that this President support.
Hey Jamie Foxx, I know you think this disaster of a Commander in Chief is YOUR Savior but he ain’t MINE! I know how in step it is in Hollywood to slam guns and gun owners however are any of you insipid fools aware of how ridiculous you look when you talk about the culture of guns and how much of a role you have played in making them very alluring thru your videos and movies? Or how about the fact that everywhere most of you go you are shadowed by a squad of your own personal armed guards?
So my message to the individuals in Hollywood who play ” Make Believe ” for millions of dollars is this …F…Off ! Stop interjecting into the way this Nation determines policy. The middle class are fighting for their lives with a President who will not be happy until we have become completely dependent on Government and in doing so become slaves to it.This is not a movie set. We of the middle class have no limo to get into or private jet to scamper off to the South of France to. Get down on your knees and pray to whatever it is you pray to and be thankful for your Lottery Ticket lifestyle. Hugs and Kisses from the Middle Class.
