CAIR Tries To Get Human Rights Commission To Investigate Laura Loomer

Published

on

Journalist Laura Loomer is the target of a campaign by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) to investigate her for human rights violations because she said that she avoids Muslim Uber drivers due to numerous terrorist incidents and threats involving Muslim individuals. CAIR is pressing the New York City Commission on Human Rights to investigate Loomer.

Loomer this week scored a viral hit with her Big League Politics video confronting Rep. Maxine Waters regarding Waters’ call for Democrats to physically intimidate Trump officials in public. Waters, who said that the early-’90s L.A. riots represented “the voice of the unheard,” repeatedly struck Loomer, prompting Loomer to file a police report against the California congresswoman.

Now, CAIR New York is claiming that Loomer violated the law by discriminating against Muslim drivers for Uber, a sponsor of the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia — where rival taxi cabs were chased away for many blocks around the venue.

As any legal expert knows, Loomer, a Jew, could not have possibly broken any law anywhere in the United States of America because no law can impede on Constitutional religious liberty protection and the personal liberty to not be forced to get into a car with an Uber driver if a person does not want to.

Look at this acknowledgment in CAIR’s own statement: “The Supreme Court may be willing to ignore anti-Muslim bias, but our city must remain committed to fighting bigotry,” said CAIR-NY Legal Director Albert Cahn….”

The New York City Commission on Human Rights is an eight-member council presided over by left-wing mayor Bill de Blasio.

Here is part of CAIR’s statement:

(NEW YORK, NY, 6/28/2018) – The New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NY), a leading Muslim civil rights group, today issued a referral letter to the NYC Commission on Human Rights asking the commission to investigate whether Laura Loomer, a conservative commentator and creator of “ambush” videos, violated New York City Human Rights Laws prohibiting discriminatory boycotts, blacklists and related practices…

“On November 1st, 2017, at 8:40 a.m., Loomer tweeted, “I’m late to the NYPD press conference because I couldn’t find a non Muslim[sic] cab or @Uber @Lyft driver for over 30 min! This is insanity.”

Later that day she posted, “Someone needs to create a non Islamic [sic] form of @uber or @lyft because I never want to support another Islamic immigrant driver” and “I generally try to not support Muslim owned business companies [sic] here in NY.”

These statements, if true, suggest that Loomer refused or cancelled rides when she perceived the driver was Muslim. Loomer has expressed similar sentiments in recent months. Last month, she tweeted that Uber drivers “commit terror attacks and rape on the daily.” In early June, she tweeted asking how many people are “going to be killed in Jihad” by Uber drivers…”

Sebastian Gorka Blasts Trey Gowdy as ‘Grandstanding Fake’

Published

on

A national security strategist and former strategist for President Donald J. Trump blasted Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) over Gowdy’s statements to the media regarding Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland tomorrow.

“This why I can’t take Gowdy seriously,” Gorka tweeted. “The ‘great prosecutor’ had Hillary testify on Benghazi & with what result? ZIP. Now his advice 2 [President Trump] is ask former KGB colonel Putin where he can “pick up” his GRU colleagues? What a grandstanding FAKE.”

Gorka has a point. Gowdy, once known for his sharp tongue and pointed questions during the House Select Committee on Benghazi hearings, has accomplished little in his time as a Congressman.

“I would ask the president to give some serious consideration, your first request of Vladimir Putin needs to be, ‘Tell us which airport we can pick up the 25 Russians that tried to interfere with the fundamentals of our democracy,'” Gowdy told Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein indicted 12 Russians on Friday over alleged “hacking” of the DNC during the 2016 campaign cycle.

But the fact remains: More than 700 days have passed since the “Russian collusion” narrative was first injected into the mainstream, and not one iota of evidence exists suggesting that Trump had anything to do with Russian meddling in the election.

Still, Gowdy wants to talk tough.

“If you really claim that you had nothing to do with it, then you should be as shocked as we were that your military being used to impact our election, tell us where your going to extradite those folks because an American grand jury indicted them for undermining our democracy.”

Of course, none of that has been proven either. An indictment is not an indication of guilt. And lest we forget, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller actually indicted a Russian company that does not exist as part of his partisan witch hunt.

Yet Gowdy, a prosecutor who should indeed be a bit skeptical, seems to be taking Mueller at his word and inferring guilt from an indictment.

Gowdy talked tough at the open hearing of disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok last week regarding pre-election bias in the nation’s highest law enforcement agency. Still, frustrated Americans have nothing to show for it.

He let Lisa Page, Strzok’s lover and confidante, also a disgraced FBI agent, ignore a congressional subpoena to appear before Congress on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, former Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton never faced any consequences for perjuring herself on live television during the very Benghazi hearings over which Gowdy presided, and has never been seriously investigated for any of the myriad of other misdeeds related to her scam charity, The Clinton Global Initiative.

Just another day in the swamp.
