Does this progressive GOP leader have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood?

For a long time, Glenn has been warning people about Grover Norquist, a well-known progressive in the Republican party. Frank Gaffney, founder of the Center for Security Policy, joined Glenn on radio today and explained why he believes Norquist has been part of an “influence operation” on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood that has obscured the danger the Islamist group poses the the United States. Why do America’s leaders have such a problem naming radical Islam as a threat to the Western way of life? This interview sheds new light on the story.

Start listening to the interview at 6min 25 seconds:

"There is a re-election campaign going on right now in the NRA for Grover Norquist. And Grover Norquist is I believe one of the more dangerous men in America. And they've done a really great job of making anybody who thinks Grover Norquist is a dangerous man look like a conspiracy theorist. But he is a dangerous man," Glenn said on radio.

Frank Gaffney said, "I wouldn't have believed this myself if I hadn't had the providential experience, I guess, Glenn, of actually being co-located with his organization, for seven biblically long years. And in this course of that time, about a month after we moved into this shared sublet arrangement, a colleague of mine said there's a Muslim Brotherhood front group on the other side of that Xerox room, which we happened to share. So this anti-activist, the man who's promise in certain conservative circles particularly for his role in trying to keep taxes low and a pledge to not raise taxes and so on, has had a side line that he started, I discovered, back in 1998 when he began taking money and staff and otherwise associating with a top Muslim Brotherhood operative at the time by the name of Abdurahman Alamoudi."

"Alamoudi was subsequently imprisoned for 23 years in connection with terrorism charges and was also identified by the federal government as an al-Qaeda financier. This is a man who put Grover Norquist in the business of running an Islamist influence operation called the Islamic Free Market Institute, and I believe and what's so worrying about the possibility he might be re-elected to the [NRA] board...is I think these influence operations on behalf of enemies of this country are continuing. We've done a dossier on this which people can check out at securefreedom.org. It's called Agent of Influence, Grover Norquist and the Assault on the Right."

"Grover Norquist has been promoting, and he makes no bones about it, so-called leaders of Muslim American community, a number of whom, not just Alamoudi, but Sami al-Arian, for example, have also convicted on terrorism charges. Others are known Muslim Brotherhood operatives. He helped engineer their influence on George W. Bush at a critical time, within hours of 9/11, by the way. And subsequently, that I believe contributed materially to the problem we talked about on the show yesterday, a lack of clarity about the nature of the enemy. We're being subjected, thanks in part to Grover Norquist and his Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist friends to an influence operation."

What is an influence operation? Gaffney explained that it involves infiltrating enemies and

"An influence operation is one of the oldest pieces of tradecraft espionage and sort of state operations against enemies. You see what you can do to get inside their heads, to get inside their government, to get inside their civil society institutions, and undermine them from within. This is, by the way, the explicit mission of the Muslim Brotherhood. A plan they put together back in 1991. It was introduced into evidence down in Richardson, Texas, in 2008, by the federal government. It says [the Muslim Brotherhood's] mission in America...is to destroy western civilization from within by their hands, meaning ours, meaning infidels and the hands of the believers so that God's religion is made victorious over all other religions. And then it proceeds to lay out how the brothers are working to undermine from within the church, the media, academia, our financial sector, our government. And so on. And what I really am concerned about is the extent to which Grover Norquist has been an enabler of this, particularly against the conservative movement. And against the Republican party."

"What you cannot help but take away from a clear, objective reading of this dossier, Glenn, is Grover Norquist has in fact been serving as an agent of influence since 1998 for Muslim Brotherhood operatives and organizations and - oh by the way - for the Iranian government as wel. Running interference for them in a matter that is deeply I believe injurious to our interests."

"These are documented facts. He does deny them. He will accuse me of being a racist, bigot, and Islamaphobe and so on. And the board of the National Rifle Association and I believe the membership needs to know what these facts are and if they do, I can't imagine that they want that guy anywhere near a leadership position in that organization," Gaffney said.

Gaffney said that he is often asked what Norquist's motivation for helping the Muslim Brotherhood could be, and he admitted that he doesn't know why he does it. His actions, on the other hand, show that it is happening.

"This is particularly concerning because this guy is inside the wire of the conservative movement, of the Republican party, of the National Rifle Association and I believe it must come to an end," Gaffney said.

At the end of the interview, Glenn encouraged conservatives and NRA members to do their homework on Grover Norquist.

"I find this so serious, and I find him such a dangerous man, that I may reject my membership of the NRA if he's re-elected. I just don't think I can stand with the organization. And I love this organization. I think they do an awful lot of good and I think they are really good people. And I've helped raise millions of dollars for them. But Grover Norquist is a very, very bad and dangerous man in my opinion. And you need to do your own homework on it. Don't take my word for it, don't take Frank's word for it. Don't take Grover's word for it. Do your homework on it," Glenn said.

Independence Day is one of the few days when Americans come together to celebrate our country and the continued vision that our Founding Fathers crafted in 1776. But what is that vision? It seems with every passing July 4th, Americans lose even more of a sense of what the original intent of our nation was supposed to be. It's becoming increasingly important to read the Founding Fathers in their own words and to remember the vision that they cast for our nation. Here are our TOP 10 favorite Founding Fathers' quotes to help us remember their original views of government, freedom, and the American vision.

We live in a dark time, so it is more important now than ever to make sure you are anchored to the truth.

Glenn was recently on the “Chicks on the Right” podcast for a follow-up interview after Amy Jo Clark and Miriam Weaver joined Glenn on his podcast back in March. The three dove into a lively discussion that touched on several things happening in Glenn's personal life, and Glenn delved into the importance of truth in our increasingly Orwellian society.

Glenn told the “Chicks” about his upcoming first novel for young adults, Chasing Embers, which is set in a dystopian world where the wildest WEF fantasies have come true and history has been completely rewritten. Glenn revealed that he was inspired to write the book while reading Karl Marx. He reflected on how Karl Marx was, and still is in many cases, considered this articulate revolutionary, but when compared to the words of the Founding Fathers, his articulation and arguments pale in comparison. He wanted to explore the idea, "What if Jefferson was the revolutionary again, not Marx?" Chasing Embers asks how we preserve the philosophies of the founders and the values of the Constitution so that our children have a chance to discover it if the world turns completely upside down.

Glenn also discussed how important it is to learn history, to anchor yourself in truth, God, and the Constitution, and our responsibility to preserve them in the face of the dystopian movement that is increasingly encroaching on Western civilization. Glenn described the country as "suicidal" and posited whether we can rein in a nation that is hurdling itself towards the brink. He said we can do our part to help, but unless the country decides it wants to live, it will die. We have to be prepared to endure such a scenario with our morals intact and the necessary knowledge to rebuild on hand.

Towards the end of the conversation, Glenn revealed some of the lessons he's learned in his decades on radio. He said that you have to know yourself--both the good and bad--be ready to defend your beliefs, and admit when you are wrong.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!

For the past four years, the mainstream media has been covering for Biden, claiming that he is "fit for duty," despite the strong evidence to the contrary. But after the whole world saw just how "fit" Biden truly is during last night's disastrous debate, the illusion was completely shattered, and the media is scrambling to save face.

Glenn pointed out in his post-debate reaction on his radio show this morning that the mainstream media is in a panic. Biden's performance was so catastrophic that it seems like the Democrats might have to jump ship and find a new candidate. Meanwhile, the question is what to do with Biden between now and the election. Glenn pointed out that as commander-in-chief, Biden has the sole ability to respond to a nuclear threat to America, yet he can hardly complete a sentence.

People from across the political spectrum are reeling from this absolute disaster, weighing in on just how bad it was and making suggestions on how to move forward. We highlighted 10 of these responses below:

1. The Democratic Party is panicking 

2. Undecided voters lean away from Biden

3. Chip Roy calls on Kamala Harris to invoke the 25th Amendment

4. The Democrats look for a replacement 

5. The White House is called out on lies about Biden's health

6. Politico calls out Biden's "uneven" performance 

7. Joy Reid and Obama's crew panic over Biden's display of feebleness 

8. BU historian calls Biden debate 'worst performance by a candidate'

9. Van Jones calls Biden's debate performance 'painful'

10. Biden looked exactly like how conservatives claimed he looks 

​YOU made Target​ choose between profit and 'progress'

Have you seen Target's newest pride month collection? Don't worry, you don't have to break your hard-won boycott streak to satisfy your morbid curiosity. Glenn took a look during a recent radio show. If you remember last year's display, you might be expecting horrors such as tuck-friendly bathing suits, chest binders for girls, and apparel made by a transgender Satan apologist. Fortunately, that's not what Glenn found. Instead, the collection was very tame, with one item being a charcuterie board with the phrase, "It's giving charcuterie" printed on it. So what happened? Did Target have a come-to-Jesus moment over the last year?

You. You are what happened.

The Target boycotts did exactly what they were supposed to do, they punched Target right in the wallet. According to the New York Post, Target lost a whopping TEN BILLION dollars in just ten days. You stood up for what you believed and Target had no choice but to listen. And this year's pride collection is proof that they heard you loud and clear.

"The inmates are now in charge of the asylum."

Now, this doesn't represent some change in the ethos of the company, but rather a desperate step back to protect their financial interests. The problem Target is now facing is that they don't have a whole lot of room to step back, as they have spent years cultivating a left-wing, progressive culture that really wants Target to take two steps forward instead. As Glenn said, "The inmates are now in charge of the asylum." These progressive activists within their company that they have pandered to for years don't take being told "no" very well. So when Target rolled back its pride collection, the internal backlash was immense.

Glenn's team was given access to leaked internal messaging within Target's Slack channel. The messages show the outcry of Target employees after Target announced they would be reducing the pride collection. Based on their reactions you would think they had just witnessed a national tragedy unfold. Some employees questioned if they could still work for Target after what had happened (remember, Target is still a VERY progressive company), and other employees discussed submitting ethics complaints. About a month after the internal firestorm, Target employees sent the following list of demands to leadership so that Target could atone:

  • An acknowledgment in writing, of the harm Target caused to the LGBTQ+ community.
  • A sincere apology.
  • To partner with prominent LGBTQ advocacy groups.
  • To immediately reinstate the Pride collection in full.
  • To donate to LGBTQ causes.
  • To implement sensitivity training for employees.
  • To cease all contributions to politicians and organizations that do not support the LGBTQ community.

Target has made a mistake.

By cultivating such a radical progressive community, they have placed themselves in a precarious position. On one side, there's the progressive monster they cultivated, with its ever-growing, ever-changing list of demands. On the other side, there are people like you—people who just want to shop without having to walk by transgender children's underwear. The more Target gives to the woke monster, the more they alienate their customers. Now Target is trapped—if they give in further to the woke mob, they'll lose billions of dollars, but if they don't, they'll be attacked from the inside.

So let Target serve as an example to other companies. Customers have a voice too, and when you stand up and use it, a great many things can happen.
