    Michael Savage vows to take Islam fight to Supreme Court

    Michael Savage vows to take Islam fight to Supreme Court
    Popular radio host seeks to expose CAIR's 'international funding sources'
    August 10, 2008

    Talk-radio host Michael Savage has announced he will bring his recently dismissed copyright infringement lawsuit against the Council of American-Islamic Relations to the U.S. Supreme Court in hopes of making public the Islamic group's sources of funding.

    Savage's suit – originally filed in San Francisco district court – alleged CAIR illegally published singled-out quotes and audio excerpts from his show regarding Islam, misappropriated his words and used the clips for its own fundraising purposes, damaging the value of his copyrighted material.

    Indeed CAIR last year waged a public campaign using excerpted Savage remarks to urge advertisers to boycott his top-rated program. CAIR stated its campaign successfully resulted in Savage losing $1 million in advertising.

    Part of Savage's lawsuit alleged CAIR received millions in foreign funding and that it may have been wrongfully acting as a lobbyist or agent for a foreign government, violating the Islamic group's nonprofit status.

    Savage also alleged CAIR was engaged in racketeering, describing the group as a "mouthpiece of international terror" that helped fund the 9-11 attacks, a contention strongly denied by CAIR.

    But his lawsuit was tossed last month by San Francisco District U.S. Judge Susan Illston, who ruled it is legal to use excerpts of a public broadcast for purposes of comment and criticism.

    Illston, nominated to her position by President Bill Clinton, wrote in her ruling that Savage could try to rewrite the racketeering portion of his suit to better fit the specifics of his case.

    Savage's attorney Daniel Horowitz told WND he is reworking the suit to directly address Illston's "respectful" ruling. He said the new suit includes over 200 pages of supporting documents, including 200 pages of transcripts of the meeting in which CAIR was founded.

    On his program last week, Savage announced if Illston again rejects his suit, he will bring the case to the higher 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, and then to the Supreme Court.

    "I'm going to open up this case. I'm going to sue CAIR. I'm bringing a lawsuit back against them. It's going to cost me a fortune. And when Judge Illston rejects it again, which she will do because she's a minion of the Bill Clinton crowd, I'm going to take it over her head and I'm going to go to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, where again I'm going to hit a stonewall. And then I'm going to take it to the Supreme Court until eventually I force CAIR to describe who their funding sources are," Savage said.

    Horowitz said if the suit goes to the Supreme Court, he will seek to procure the representation of attorney Martin Garbus, who has famously won numerous high-profile Supreme Court cases.

    Savage pointed to CAIR's recent complaint against the Abercrombie & Fitch clothing company for not hiring a Muslim woman dressed in a head scarf as evidence the Islamic group is expanding its "targets" beyond talk radio.

    The woman applied for a job in Oklahoma City. The local Abercrombie manager allegedly said a scarf "does not fit" the company's image.

    "Don't you understand what they're doing to this country?" asked Savage. "How they're targeting the Midwest, talk radio, one talk show host at a time? One company at a time? Don't you know that CAIR is going to come for you?"

    Continued Savage: "First they came for Michel Savage, and you didn't raise your voice and you laughed. Then they came after Abercrombie and Fitch, and you didn't raise your voice because you weren't in the retail business. Tomorrow they'll come after you and your business."

    Addressing CAIR directly, Savage warned: "One day you're going to hit the wrong judge in the wrong city at the wrong time and then the American people are going to find out where your funding is coming from."

    The top radio host urged listeners to make online donations at his website to help fund his lawsuit.

    Foreign contributions to CAIR established

    In May 2007 CAIR was identified by the government as an unindicted co-conspirator in a case involving the Holy Land Foundation, a charity that is allegedly affiliated with Hamas. Federal prosecutors in the case listed CAIR under the category: “Individuals/entities who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee and/or its organizations.

    Savage, in my wisdom, has a good case, but this is going to take millions of dollars to fight this thing. Apparently, Mr. Savage has taken enforcement of law more importantly than the money, and I applaud him for it. It should be no surprise that CAIR is funded by the oil money we send them. The Saudis, another one benefitting from our need for their black gold are sponsoring schools devoted to Wahhabism in the middle of the country. Foreign national sovereign wealth funds are buying or leasing everything they can get their hands on. The Chinese and others are stealing our secrets left and right, pirating our music industry with no residuals paid, poisoning our pets and children. And in worship of the almighty dollar we are shipping our tech expertise abroad for cheap labor.
    Butterbean, keep us posted, even though this is just a small step but the start of any journey needs just one small step.
