    Glenn Beck Presents ‘Just the Beginning’ of Why You Need to Pay Attention to Grover N

    Glenn Beck Presents ‘Just the Beginning’ of Why You Need to Pay Attention to Grover Norquist

    Oct. 21, 2013 8:45pm Erica Ritz


    Glenn Beck on Monday began what he said is “just the beginning” of his work to reveal the background and motivations of Grover Norquist, the founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform.
    Beck began by playing recent clips of Norquist calling out Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for his efforts to derail Obamacare, noting that while he used to joke about the left’s portrayal of Norquist as a “big power player,” he’s since revised his dismissive opinion in light of the warnings that you “don’t ever take this guy on unless you’re prepared.”
    Beck’s show Monday primarily concentrated on Norquist’s alleged connections to Islamists. He invited Frank Gaffney, the president of the Center for Security Policy, and Daniel Greenfield of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, to weigh in.

    “[Norquist] is the guy responsible for a lot of the Muslim Brotherhood stuff that goes on in the White House, isn’t he?” Beck asked the two.
    “Glenn, I think most people who know Grover only as a prominent anti-tax guy in the conservative movement would find that statement unbelievable, and to be honest with you I would’ve, but for the fact that I saw it first-hand as a result of sharing office space for what I think of seven biblically long years with Grover Norquist,” Gaffney remarked. “I saw terrorists in his office space. I had colleagues come to me and say, ‘You know there’s a Muslim Brotherhood front operating out of his office suite?’”
    “It was called the Islamic Free Market Foundation, or Institute,” Gaffney continued, saying it is more commonly known as simply the Islamic Institute. “This was an operation that was created by a man who’s now serving time in federal prison for terrorism by the name Abdurahman Alamoudi.”
    Gaffney added that at, where viewers can find a ten-part course on the Muslim Brotherhood by the Center for Security Policy, there is a clip of “Norquist at a meeting in Dearborn, Michigan in October 2011 put together between George Soros’ progressives or leftists, radicals, and the Islamists.”
    “[Norquist] talks very candidly about what amounts to an influence operation that he’s been running against a prominent conservative Republican Senate leader, and you just can’t come away from this with any conclusion other than he knows exactly what he’s doing, and what he’s doing in this case is advancing the agenda of not just Muslims, but Islamists, and I’m afraid that’s the kind of thing that he’s got to be held accountable for,” Gaffney said.

    When asked why he would have such connections, Greenfield weighed in: “Well the Muslim Brotherhood, like the communists and the Nazis before them, are experts at setting up front groups with innocuous names and finding people who would be useful to them. Norquist was useful to them, and in some ways, they were useful to him.”
    Greenfield later added: “If you were a freedom guy, then why would he be backing an ideology associated with a complete totalitarian regime? Why would he be backing the…misfortunes of the conservative movement? And why would he be doing everything possible to undermine the possibility that the Republican Party can back a freedom-based agenda?”
    Beck concluded by saying this is a “complex issue,” but that it is time that somebody takes on the “establishment Republicans” and tell you “exactly who’s who.”
    “If you’re for the Constitution, I don’t care if you’re a liberal or a Democrat or a Republican and a conservative, I don’t really care, if you’re for the Constitution of the United States of America,” Beck said. “That’s our dividing line, and there are too many in the Republican Party, so let’s clean out our own house first.”

    Why Grover Norquist Hates Ted Cruz

    Posted on October 21, 2013 by Gary DeMar

    Grover Norquist has been out front in his attacks against Ted Cruz. Norquist is the founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform, an organization that opposes all tax increases. Norquist is an Establishment Republican insider while flirting with leftist causes like statehood for the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, is on the advisory board of GOProud, a political organization representing Republican homosexuals, transgendered people, and sits on a six-person advisory panel that nominates Time magazine’s Person of the Year.

    In 2004, Grover Norquist married a Palestinian Muslim named Samah Alrayyes, a Kuwaiti <acronym title="Google Page Ranking">PR</acronym> specialist who was formerly a director of the Islamic Free Market Institute and specialist at the Bureau of Legislative and Public Affairs at United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

    David Horowitz has described Norquist as an "Islamist Fifth Column." Michelle Malkin has also written about Norquist's Muslim ties.

    Norquist works within the bowels of the Establishment Republican Party but has done little to move a true conservative agenda forward.

    Add to all of this a relentless attack on Cruz. Norquist is “demanding that Ted Cruz ‘apologize’ to House Republicans for not having a viable strategy.” And so what is Norquist’s strategy?:

    “I think the original plan for the Republicans was to move the continuing resolution past the debt ceiling and then to sit down with Obama and decide whether he would be willing to trade some relaxation of the Sequester for significant reforms of entitlements. That was something Obama might well do.”

    So the Republicans were to give in and hope that Obama would agree to “significant reforms of entitlements.” That’s it? That’s a strategy?

    Why would the supposed “arch-conservative” Norquist attack Cruz when Cruz was mounting real opposition to Obama’s agenda that would have slowed government spending and defunded ObamaCare? Money and prestige.

    One of my favorite writers is William Goldman. You’ve most likely watched a film whose screenplay was written by Goldman” Marathon Man (based on his novel of the same name), The Stepford Wives, Misery, The Princess Bride, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and many others.

    Goldman wrote the famous line “Follow the money” for the screenplay of All the President's Men. Therein lies the reason Grover Norquist has been attacking Ted Cruz. Norquist makes his money working with Establishment Republicans. Without them, Norquist is out of a job and without a stream of income. As long as there is a fight, Norquist makes money.

    If Cruz had succeeded in rallying moderate Republicans to his cause, Norquist would have lost his GOP Establishment pull. All the big money that goes to Americans for Tax Reform would dry up. Obama and the Democrats could be beaten with ideas and politicians with a backbone and very little funding. We're already hearing how big-business Republicans are planning to defeat the Tea Party with funding to Establishment Republicans.

    Grover Norquist is a lot like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. He, like Jackson and Sharpton, needs to keep the political pot boiling in order to stay in business.

    Ted Cruz comes along and does it all on the cheap. This worries the GOP consultants who make money even if GOP candidates lose.
