Ellison Named to Judiciary Committee

That's what this AP article says. Here's what the article says:
Rep. Keith Ellison has been named to the House Judiciary Committee, a panel that has oversight over issues such as civil liberties, immigration and courts.

In a prepared statement, Ellison, (D-MN), called the selection an honor and privilege.

"I look forward to pursuing a progressive agenda in the committee, including the restoration of American citizen's civil liberties that have come under increasing attack over the past six years," said Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress.
It's worth noting that John Conyers is the chairman of the Judiciary Committee. Conyers is the man who drafted a resolution that gives Muslims special civil-rights protections immediately after the imams were banned from US Airways Flight 300. Conyers was also CAIR-Michigan's Man of the Year in 2005.

What's fascinating to me is that CAIR's two biggest shills are on the committee that will codify CAIR's profiling wishes into law. Conyers will write the legislation banning profiling and Ellison will likely co-sponsor and vote for that legislation, both in committee and before the full House. I'm not basing my prediction on my opinion. Rather, I'm predicting this because of what's on the historical record:
Working with Conyers, the Ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, Democrats have introduced legislation to end racial profiling, limit the reach of the Patriot Act, and make immigration safe and accessible.
It doesn't take Nostradamus to predict what's likely to happen based on this information.

This is historical news in another sense. For the first time, CAIR's Man of the Year and CAIR's Congressman are working on the same committee. Coming to think of it, it isn't unreasonable to think of Nancy Pelosi as CAIR's Speaker:
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Congressman John Dingell (D-MI), Congressman John Conyers (D-MI), Congressman Charles Rangel (D-NY), and other Congressional Democrats were joined yesterday by national leaders of the Muslim American community in a roundtable discussion on issues of mutual concern to Democrats and Muslim Americans. The discussion centered on working together to defend civil rights and to restore civil liberties.
"This discussion is only the first in an ongoing dialogue between Congressional Democrats and Muslim Americans," Pelosi said. "We share a fundamental principle, the belief that diversity is the backbone of our communities. Generations of Muslims have made positive contributions in every aspect of American life. We must now work even more closely to navigate through the challenges we face as a nation."
That sounds like Ms. Pelosi's endorsement of CAIR's anti-profiling policy wishes, doesn't it? It isn't unreasonable to think that Ms. Pelosi is CAIR's Speaker.

The good news for airline passengers is that Americans will ignore whatever anti-profiling laws CAIR's shills vote into law. Congress can afford not to profile at airports because they fly chartered airplanes. Real people still have to pay attention to that.

So what, even if you did post a piece on a Jewish defense website. How would that discredit you? Kahane Chai and Kach no longer exist. The JDL is NOT designated as a terror organization. Hamas and Hizbollah ARE TERRORIST groups! This clown is trying to say you can't associate with a Jewish organization in defense of it's people because it makes you a terrorist. Anyone could see through that crap. I say you post on every right and left wing Jewish website in cyberspace. The Jewish right is gaining popularity in the USA and supported by many Christian organizations. America is getting wise to CAIR and find them laughable.

Is it usual for a just-elected Representative to be named to such a prestigious committee?
