CAIR is scheduled to give Helen Thomas a lifetime achievement award on October 9th.

I. Kid. You. Not.

You may remember that Thomas resigned after telling Israeli Jews to "get the hell out of Palestine" and "go home" to "everywhere else."

Also, Obama leaves the Creator out of the Declaration of Independence.

From this source: 

Two days before the country was set to celebrate Constitution Day, President Obama decided to invoke the words of another founding document: the Declaration of Independence. Except he changed the words.
Towards the end of a speech on September 15 to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, Obama began quoting the famous “rights” line from the founding document. But partway through, he omitted where those rights come from: a Creator.
The line is supposed to read: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
But Obama’s recitation left out an important part: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are crated equal. [Long Pause] Endowed with certain inalienable [sic] rights: life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
As the American Thinker points out, it could well be that Obama intentionally ignored his teleprompter:
After President Obama says “created equal..”, there is a long pause during which he scowls and blinks several times. For once, he may actually have opted to not read something that was on the teleprompter. It looks like he is disgusted and decided it would be better not to read what the [Declaration] actually says.
Go here to see the footage for yourself.

"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?”

Little did Alice know that the American Left would fulfill her wish.

This wasn't an accident. He taught Constitutional law. The Deceleration of Independence had to have come up somewhere along the line. He's read it before.

There is another angle here. Hispanics are traditionally strong Christians. Why weren't the people in attendance concerned about this?

CAIR owes Helen for telling the Jews what they can do to themselves.

No surprise about Obama either..after all, he did insist on covering the IHS and cross above the GU seal.

I posted about this today too... I don't think it's an accident. It seems clear that BO is just isn't an American at heart.

We at Anti-CAIR are not at all surprised by this.

You see, it's expected of CAIR to do stuff like this. It gives them attention.

CAIR loves Helen Thomas. Why am I not surprised?

About BHO's omission of words in the Declaration of Independence, I posted the video this morning. IMO, he deliberately omitted the words about our Creator. He can't acknowledge the Christian God, can he?

Gator: They're through the looking glass, alright.

Chuck: Agreed. This was no mistake. As to your other question, I have no idea.

Jeff: Yes, I hadn't thought about Obama doing that previously!

Angel: Yes.

Steve: Ah, a PeTA-style move, eh?

AOW: Yes, as Jeff said, this is a pat on the back for Thomas.

Obama must be feeling a little heat for this omission; he's attended his first church service since Easter.

This just in:

It’s not what you think. You can open your eyes, a little…
DEARBORN — The Arab American National Museum (AANM) reports the $10,000 fundraising goal to complete the Helen Thomas sculpture has been met with one week to spare in the 45-day campaign. As of Sept. 3, $10,031 had been pledged to the project.
Reaching the $10,000 goal ensures disbursement of donations to the AANM. The campaign not only made possible this important addition to the Arab American National Museum, it is also an excellent example of a cost-effective fundraising method supported by social-media promotion. This was the Museum’s first such foray and due to its success, is unlikely to be its last.
