The day after it was announced ISIS executed British Aid Worker David Haines, sprang into action and issued an Action Alert…to censor experts scheduled to talk about Islamic extremism to law enforcement in Arizona.
And they are trying to censor one of the stars of my documentary The Caliphate. (Click for more info and to donate to help get the film finished.)
Sure, the tweet gets cut off but you can see where it’s going,
CAIR want readers to Take Action! against anti-Muslim hate, urging them call and write to…well, to stop a couple of people from speaking. So, they want censorship, right?
So, who do they want censored? From CAIR’s release:
On September 19th, the MCAO is hosting a training presentation on “Islamic extremism” with known Islamophobes. John Guandolo and Clare Lopez - two headlining speakers at this training event – are known for their well-documented anti-Muslim hate rhetoric. Arizona Muslim community leaders, along with the ACLU, wrote to Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery highlighting concerns over allowing hate speakers to train our law enforcement and prosecutors.
Known Islamophobe Clare Lopez!
Well, that’s interesting to me since known Islamophobe Clare Lopez is one of the people featured in my upcoming film The Caliphate! You can see Clare featured in this trailer for the film.
And here’s an extended clip of Clare that seems especially appropriate: Clare talking about how information about Islamic extremism was purged by the Obama administration. Watch it all, it’s chilling.

I’ve interviewed Pastor Jones in the past by audio about his involvement with the film ‘The Innocence of Muslims’ and how he was contacted by government officials prior to the attacks in Benghazi, proving their awareness of the latent danger in North Africa and the Middle East. Instead of acting to increase security, they tried to take the film down.
This is an issue that’s misunderstood by almost everybody, including many of those who understand the truth and true gravity of what happened in Benghazi.
Here is a teaser for an interview that I shot lost night with Pastor Terry Jones:
…and here are three long segments.
Even more significant, however, is Jones talking about how both the State Department and the military were concerned about the impact of the video but instead of increasing security at embassies, they called Terry Jones and asked him not to play the video. This is inexcusable.
Former Iowa State Senator Ken Sorenson pled guilty of accepting bribes today in Federal Court…but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
The New York Times reports:
Mr. Sorenson, 42, of Milo, Iowa, had been the state chairman for the presidential campaign of Representative Michele Bachmann, Republican of Minnesota, but then switched his support to former Representative Ron Paul of Texas just days before the state’s caucus.
In a statement filed with his plea agreement, Mr. Sorensen admitted that he agreed to switch his allegiance in exchange for $73,000 in payments. The Justice Department did not name the campaigns involved in the scheme. He has not yet been sentenced.
But that’s all the only illegal shenanigans Sorenson was involved in.
He was also involved in the theft of a valuable mailing list, a theft that involved others who will be caught up in the aftermath of Sorenon turning state’s evidence with today’s plea deal.
Listen to this exclusively obtained audio of Sorenson discussing the mailing list theft.
Well, if the liberals cover it, it must be news now.
I covered the scandal I named #Staffergate for months. (Here’s a one hour podcast I did in December about it.) I said it would end up impacting Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, Rand Paul, and Mitch McConnell.
Today, one shoe dropped as Ken Sorenson pled guilty. The Des Moines Register:
A former Iowa state senator has pleaded guilty in federal court to crimes related to accepting payment from a presidential campaign during Iowa’s 2012 presidential caucus campaign.
Kent Sorenson, of Milo, concealed payments he received from then-U.S. Rep. Ron Paul’s presidential campaign and then obstructed the investigation into the incident, the U.S. Department of Justice announced in a release on Wednesday.
He pleaded guilty to two counts and now is awaiting sentencing. Sorenson could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 for the first count and 20 years in prison and another $250,000 fine for the second.
And now MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is covering it.
