NC governor signs bill curtailing successor’s powers

by
December 17, 2016

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) on Friday signed legislation that will severely curtail the powers of his successor, Democratic Gov.-elect Roy Cooper.

The Republican-dominated state legislature passed several measures dramatically overhauling the governor’s power in an unexpected special session just weeks before McCrory leaves office. Democrats argued that the moves amounted to a power grab aimed at undermining Cooper even before he takes office.

At least 18 people were arrested during protests against the Republican maneuvers Friday at the state capitol in Raleigh.

The bill McCrory signed will limit the governor’s power to make appointments to certain state boards including the Board of Elections.

It would create state and county boards of elections with equal numbers of Democratic and Republican members. Until now, the governor appointed three of the five members of the state Board of Elections, and county boards were made up of two members of the governor’s party and one member of the other party.

    AMA’S ADMINSTRATION. KEEP IN MIND THAT PUBLIC LAW #414, CHAPTER 2, SECTION 212 BANNING ALL MUSLIMS FORM THE USA WAS PASSED IN 1952.

    KEEP IN MIND THAT HILLARY’S TOP AIDE IS FROM A RADICAL MUSLIM FAMIMLY AND OBAMA HAS GIVEN BILLIONS OF YOUR TAX MONEY TO THEM, HAS SET UP 36 PLUS MUSLIMS CAMPS, 5 IN N.VA. CLOSE TO D.C. AND A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE WITH ARMED GUARDS. WHY?

    A CLOSER LOOK FROM MANY SOURCES (This is followup from the “Operatives in the Obama Administration”–a description of each one.)

    Alikhan, a first generation American, from a Pakistani mother and Indian father. He is one of the founders of the World Islamic Organization (WIO), which the Egyptian magazine identifies as a Brotherhood “subsidiary.” It suggests that Alikhan was responsible for the “file of Islamic states” in the White House and that he provided the direct link between the Obama administration and the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011.

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano appointed Mr. Alikhan to the position of Assistant Secretary for Policy Development in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. As a Senior Advisor to the U.S. Attorney General in Washington, D.C. he oversaw the National Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property Program for the Department of Justice.

    Elibiary is a Texas-based Islamic cleric who founded Lone Star Intelligence LLC, “to promote a centrist public-policy environment in Texas by coordinating the state-level government and interfaith community relations for the organized Texas Muslim community.”
    He has endorsed the ideas of radical Muslim Brotherhood luminary Sayyid Qutb, and was given access to a highly sensitive file containing hundreds of thousands of intelligence reports intended solely to aid law-enforcement agencies. Elibiary also spoke at the infamous Dallas Muslim conference in honor of “the great Islamic visionary” the Ayatollah Khomeini.

    In fact, Elibiary may have leaked secret materials contained in Department of Homeland Security databases, according to Rose El-Youssef. He, however, denies having any connection with the Brotherhood.
    Elibiary also played a role in defining the Obama administration’s counter-terrorism strategy, and the Egyptian magazine asserted that he wrote the speech Obama gave when he told former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to leave power “but offers no source or evidence for that claim.”

    Al-Marayati, originally from Bagdad, Iraq, is founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), a Los Angeles-based Islamic advocacy group that defends Muslim extremist violence. MPAC has condemned the anti-terrorism measures of both the U.S. and Israel and has called for a repeal of the Patriot Act. The magazine draws connections between MPAC and the international Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure. He has justified Hamas’ existence as a political entity that promotes social programs and “educational operations.”
    He has called for the U.S. government to unfreeze the assets of two Islamic charities, the Global Relief Foundation and the Holy Land Foundation, both shut down by the U.S. government because of verifiably funding terrorist organizations.
    In 2010, the administration picked Al-Marayati to represent the U.S. government at the annual Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) conference, and in 2012 he was again part of that same forum in Poland. This raised many concerns from critics as Al-Marayati is an outspoken critic of Israel who once said the Jewish state should be added to the list of 9/11 terror suspects, according to Fox News, 17 October 2012.

    Imam Mohamed Magid, originally from Sudan, heads the Islamic umbrella organization, ISNA, which was founded by Brotherhood members. He was appointed by Obama in 2011 as an adviser to the Department of Homeland Security to serve in a Countering Violent Extremism Working Group. The Egyptian magazine says he has also given speeches and conferences on American Middle East policy at the State Department and offered advice to the FBI. He is nicknamed the Sharia Czar by critics of the Obama Administration.

    Eboo Patel, whose parents emigrated from India, appointed to the Obama Administration Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships, spoke at a Muslim Students Association (MSA) and ISNA convention, appearing on a panel alongside Tariq Ramadan, grandson of the Muslim Brotherhood’s founder, and Siraj Wahhaj, who was named as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and who has defended the convicted WTC bombers.
    The Egyptian magazine also said that Patel maintains a close relationship with Hani Ramadan, another grandson of Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna, and is a member of the Muslim Students Association, which it identifies as “a large Brotherhood organization.”
    According to Rose El-Youssef, Rashad Hussain maintained close ties with people and groups that comprise the Muslim Brotherhood network in America. This includes his participation in the June 2002 annual conference of the American Muslim Council, formerly headed by convicted terrorist financier Abdurahman Alamoudi.

    Rashad Hussain, son of Indian-born U.S. citizens, is the Obama administration’s envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). Hussain’s background is replete with Muslim Brotherhood associations, including the American Muslim Council (founded by al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood operative, Abdurahman Alamoudi, now in prison); the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT ) which is on the Brotherhood’s own list of “our friends and the organizations of our friends;” and the Muslim Students Association (MSA), the original Brotherhood front group in the U.S.
    In his official capacity, Hussain is responsible for providing advice on national security and Muslim outreach. He also assisted in writing the President’s June 2009 Cairo speech, in which Obama announced a new approach to the Muslim world and essentially declared war on his host, then-President Hosni Mubarak, by publicly signaling his recognition of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. Hussain also acts as point man for the Obama administration’s cooperation with “the Istanbul Process,” the effort of the 57 member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to make it an international crime to criticize Islam. (Yes, you read it right!)
    Perhaps an event like the Benghazi fiasco can now be better understood. The current administration’s duplicity was incomprehensible in the aftermath of the September 11, 2012 terror attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, when it repeatedly and mendaciously claimed that an Internet video trailer sparked a protest there that got out of hand. Now it appears to have been carefully scripted not just with the OIC, but Muslim Brotherhood organizations in the U.S., as well.
    Every follower of Yeshua the Messiah, Jesus Christ, must now ask our Heavenly what he or she should do about America’s immediate future. It starts with prayer. It must follow with action
