4 VIDEO'S: Congress resisting calls to investigate Al Jazeera 'Let's put the evidence on the record' regarding network's work with terrorists

FREE ZONE MEDIA CENTER

WASHINGTON – Congress is resisting calls to investigate Al Jazeera, which recently acquired Al Gore’s Current TV, according to Cliff Kincaid, president of America’s Survival.
“It seems logical that the House Homeland Security Committee would look at Al Jazeera as a possible Homeland Security threat, and yet a letter we sent to this committee on January 9 has yet to be received with an official response,” Kincaid said.
He said a committee staffer called him but said arrogantly: ‘We are not listening to you. You aren’t going to drive our agenda.’”
Kincaid said if anyone doubts Al Jazeera should be investigated,  “I say, let’s have a congressional hearing.”
“Let’s put the evidence on the record to demonstrate how Al Jazeera works hand and glove with al-Qaida and other terrorist groups,” he said.
Kincaid said his organization “simply wants Congress to do its job.”
“Ever since Current TV and Al Jazeera made this deal, my group has simply said – let’s investigate and see if the law is being followed, or if Al Jazeera is a terrorist organization.”
Kincaid acknowledged the First Amendment protects foreigners from coming into the U.S. and voicing their opinions, “as long as those are done within the limits of the law.”
“The problem with Al Jazeera is they are already evading current laws, and they qualify, in my opinion, as a global terrorist entity,” he said.
He noted that Al Jazeera also has hired a public relations firm to speak on its behalf.
“DLA Piper is huge, global, multinational law firm that represented Al Jazeera in the purchase of Current TV from Al Gore,” he said. “They will now go on Capitol Hill to sell this transaction behind the scenes and behind close doors to soften up any opposition to this deal. They have all the money in the world from Qatar – which backs Al Jazeera – we simply say, ‘give the American people the chance to see the inner-workings of this deal and have some oversight over this deal.”
The move to hire the PR company came on the heels of a press conference held by America’s Survival in Washington, D.C., that questioned why the U.S. government hasn’t conducted a congressional investigation into Gore’s sale of Current TV to the Middle East news organization.
“The Qatar regime advertises itself as ‘America’s Strongest Partner in the Gulf’ but has supported terrorist groups such as al-Qaida, Hezbollah and Hamas,” said Kincaid.
“Osama bin Laden aide and 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who is currently in U.S. custody in Guantanamo Bay for acts of terrorism, lived and worked in Qatar but was allowed to leave for Pakistan as U.S. authorities were trying to apprehend him, according to the report of the 9/11 commission,” Kincaid said.
Anti-jihad blogger and activist Pamela Gellar, a WND columnist, and Jerry Kenney also spoke at the America’s Survival press conference. Kenney discussed his filing of a complaint with the U.S. Department of Justice.
The complaint alleges Al Jazeera and Russia Today “represent foreign propaganda television networks, which are in violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act.”
“They have not registered, as is required by law, and are not disclosing that their programs are distributed on behalf of a foreign government,” the complaint states.
With the purchase of Current TV, Al Jazeera extended its reach in the American market to more than 40 million homes.
Former Vice President Al Gore, who stands to make $100 million in the $500 million sale, said in a statement that the Qatar-owned network shares the same mission as Current TV, which is “to give voice to those who are not typically heard; to speak truth to power; to provide independent and diverse points of view; and to tell the stories that no one else is telling.”
Kincaid told WND, “In the United States, it is against the law to provide material support to terrorists, with ‘material support’ defined as including expert advice or assistance and communications equipment.”
In World War II, he pointed out, Tokyo Rose and Axis Sally “broadcast their anti-American diatribes from overseas and were apprehended by U.S. authorities after the war and sent to prison for treason.”
“In the more shocking Al Jazeera case, the U.S. is officially still at war with global terrorism, but Al Gore is giving the channel a base of operations on American soil with access to 40-50 million homes,” Kincaid said.

NETWORK BLASTED FOR DEMONIZING EX-'GAYS'

Network blasted for demonizing ex-'gays'

'Who watches CBS anymore anyway?'



CriminalMinds
A former homosexual who founded Parents and Friends of ExGays and Gays says Hollywood’s latest attack on people who leave the homosexual lifestyle reveals how much “gays” fear those individuals.
“They are so afraid of people discovering their sexuality and realizing that no one is born a homosexual and learning that they can actually change if they want to,” said Greg Quinlan about the issue raised by a recent episode of CBS’ “Criminal Minds.”

“It is for this reason that they preach against us with such hate and venom, attacking us for exercising our right of self-determination,” he said.
The heart of the issue is that if people who leave the homosexual lifestyle exist, it disproves the assumption that some are born homosexual and cannot change, the prevailing belief in the homosexual community.
Sparking the comments was a recent episode of “Criminal Minds” that featured a team of FBI profilers that investigates serial killers. In the Feb. 20 episode, titled “Broken,” a serial killer is murdering women and homosexual men in what appears to be a series of sex crimes.
The episode makes a startling claim as the killer is a person who received conversion therapy as a young man to overcome homosexual attractions. According to the characters in the show, the therapy caused him to believe that acting on his same-sex attraction is wrong. This belief causes him to violently attack people, because he is conflicted about his sexual orientation.
“This man can’t accept his same-sex desires, but he can’t fight them either,” one of the profilers explains. “He’s most likely been repressing all sexual urges for some time.
“He is trapped in a scenario with an impossible outcome. He can’t force himself to like women, so when he is unable to get aroused he becomes depressed again and lashes out in anger to the people he blames for his impotence.”
The show portrays members of the ex-”gay” community as ticking time bombs who are potential serial killers. In one scene, a computer screen shot features a report portraying “The Ex-Gay Movement.” The description states that cautioning children to not have homosexual thoughts was harmful and that individuals merely claimed they had changed their same-sex attraction.
“It is obvious that the ex-gay movement has become such a threat to the homosexual agenda that their allies in the media and entertainment industry now feel they have to work so diligently to discredit us,” said Quinlan. “Why is this so high on their agenda? Is CBS now so desperate to try to get any kind of market share in primetime that they have to go this route?
“Who watches CBS anymore anyway? The only thing that keeps them afloat is that they own ESPN.”
Linda Harvey, founder of Mission America, says the episode is plain and simple discrimination.
“There is absolutely no evidence behind the premise of the show. It is total and complete propaganda,” Harvey said. “Not only is it discriminating against these individuals, they slam everyone who is attempting to overcome these feelings even though there is no evidence that these feelings are inborn and say your opinions on the issue don’t matter.”

The show claims that conversion therapy traumatizes patients and routinely employs torture. The program claims electroshock therapy is used and underage children are forced to have sex with a prostitute while their parents watch.
“Several conversion camps have been shut down recently because their methods border on torture,” one of the FBI agents says.
In the end, a counselor is arrested while children who apparently had been forced to watch pornographic videos while being hooked up to some type of drug administered by an IV are freed.
The episode aired one day after Liberty Counsel issued its final brief with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals arguing against a California law that would ban conversion therapy. The court had previously granted Liberty Counsel’s motion blocking the law from going into effect.
The law would prevent counselors from attempting to change a child’s sexual orientation, even if the patient wanted the therapy.
Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, said it was outrageous that Hollywood would produce such a blatant misrepresentation of what occurs during conversion therapy.
“It is shocking that they would be so blatant and so insensitive to simply disregard the reality of what takes place during this change therapy,” Staver said. “They’re looking at some therapies that may have used shock treatment three decades ago that are no longer used. That’s like looking at somebody who performed a lobotomy on someone years ago and suggest that this is modern practice for the conversion therapy movement. It is simply inaccurate and irresponsible for the media to portray something that was done many years ago as being part of modern therapy techniques like this particular episode does.”
He explained the reality is that conversion therapy is no different than any other type of counseling being done today.
“It’s no different than marriage therapy. It all revolves around talking and listening to the client while trying to find out what their objectives and goals are,” he explained. “The client has the right to set their own counseling objectives and the counselor attempts to help them reach those objectives. It’s the same type of counseling a person would receive if they were struggling with infidelity or depression because they had just lost their job or lost a loved one.”
Harvey said the episode is part of a larger movement to portray conversion therapy as hateful while portraying ex-”gays” as unstable people who are a threat to everyone around them.
“The homosexual lobby and its supporters are now deciding there is a desperate need to discredit people who want to partake in conversion therapy,” Harvey said.
She said it’s really surprising, because homosexual groups long have argued that sexuality is “fluid” and people can move into the homosexual lifestyle.
Harvey noted that the writers are simply mimicking information presented on the Southern Poverty Law Center website.
“The SPLC has a map on their website targeting individual conversion counselors around the country,” she warned. “This map is amazing in light of the FBI finding that Floyd Corkins, who attempted to murder scores of people at the Family Research Council, was a homosexual activist who got his information about the FRC from the SPLC website.”
She noted there is a real danger from attempts by homosexual activists to demonize ex-”gays” and conversion therapists.
“These groups do not care about kids, all they care about is their agenda and whatever they have to do to manipulate people into committing violence against the Christian community. Their goal is to make people who were thinking about supporting conversion counseling to no longer support it,” she said.
Harvey said ex-”gays” and Christians should call the network and demand an apology for the inaccurate portrayal of conversion therapy and the ex-”gay” movement.
“It’s beyond jaw-dropping how full of lies this episode is. It is harmful, insulting and people need to call the network demanding an apology to the Christian community and all of the ex-homosexuals out of there who’ve successfully left this lifestyle,” she said. “If they’re going to do a show on this, they need to also do a show on the harm done by groups like PFLAG and others who were pushing children into the homosexual lifestyle.”
The SPLC appears to agree with the premise of the show. On the website the group declares that conversion therapy is “a dangerous practice” and can have “devastating consequences.”

IRAN'S NUKE PLANT COVER-UP

FREE ZONE MEDIA CENTER

Iran’s nuke-plant explosion cover-up

Last physical inspection of Fordow site was 7 weeks BEFORE blast



iaea_atoms_for_peace
The International Atomic Energy Agency’s latest report on Iran’s nuclear program, released two days ago, reveals the organization made its last physical inspection of the Fordow nuclear facility over a month prior to deadly explosions that WND reported had occurred there on Jan. 21.
IAEA had refused to confirm or deny whether there was an explosion, but in statements to the media, implied that WND’s reporting was inaccurate and not reflected in what the agency’s own inspectors had observed.

Reported Reuters on Jan. 29: “IAEA inspectors regularly visit Iranian nuclear sites, including the one at Fordow, and the U.N. agency suggested in its comment that they had been at the facility after the reports of an explosion there.
“We understand that Iran has denied that there has been an incident at Fordow. This is consistent with our observations,” IAEA spokeswoman Gill Tudor said in an emailed statement in response to a question …”
With release of Thursday’s report showing IAEA made its last physical inspection of Fordow between Nov. 17 and Dec. 3 of last year, it is now evident that Tudor’s statement was not based on observations made onsite.
WND reported exclusively on Jan. 24 that explosions rocked Iran’s nuclear facility at Fordow on Jan. 21, with updates on Jan. 27, 29, 30, 31, and Feb. 3, 6 and 13.
The blasts at first trapped 219 workers, including 16 North Koreans. Iran denied the story, and within days after its denial both Reuters and Associated Press carried stories quoting IAEA to the effect that its inspectors had been at the site after the reported explosion and that IAEA backed Tehran’s denial. Other media, following Reuters’ and AP’s lead, published the same conclusion.
On Jan. 29, the same day Reuters reported Tudor’s statement, AP ran a similar story:
“The U.N. nuclear agency is dismissing reports of a major explosion at Iran’s fortified underground nuclear facility.
“International Atomic Energy Agency spokeswoman Gill Tudor told the Associated Press on Tuesday that Iran’s denial of ‘an incident’ at the Fordow uranium-enrichment plant is ‘consistent with our observations.’ [...]
“A diplomat familiar with the issue told the AP that the IAEA’s information came directly from IAEA inspectors at Fordow.”
According to the latest IAEA report, no physical inspections of the Fordow site have been conducted since Dec. 3. Furthermore, IAEA has neither onsite inspectors nor monitoring cameras stationed at the Fordow facility.
Prior to this week’s IAEA report, WND had asked Tudor to comment on WND’s reporting and to confirm whether inspectors had been onsite after Jan. 21.
“The agency does not evaluate matters in Iran other than those directly relating to its nuclear verification work, so although we’re aware of these media reports, we are not in a position either to confirm or deny them,” Tudor said in an email to WND.
“That said,” she continued, “I’m sure you are aware that agency inspectors regularly visit Iranian nuclear facilities under the IAEA’s safeguards agreement with that country. (More information on IAEA’s safeguards mandate and activities in Iran can be found here.)
“We understand Iran has denied that there has been an incident at Fordow, and this is consistent with our observations,” Tudor said.
However, in a follow-up inquiry by WND to verify IAEA had inspected the site after the reported explosions, Tudor refused to answer.
“I’m very sorry, but I can’t go into any further details on ongoing safeguards work, which is conducted with a high level of confidentiality,” she replied.
Official IAEA reports on Iran’s nuclear facilities show regular visits at Natanz, but not at Fordow. There, IAEA must obtain permission from its Iranian counterparts for an arranged and escorted visit.
Even the regime’s Fars News Agency in a Feb. 21 story, reflecting the new IAEA report, noted claims the Fordow facility was still up and running came directly from Iran itself when it filed the required Design Information Questionnaire with IAEA.
With it now known IAEA conducted no physical inspection at Fordow in at least seven weeks prior to the Jan. 21 explosions reported by WND, the impression left by media that no incident occurred at Iran’s most valuable nuclear site is seen to rest solely on IAEA echoing Tehran’s denials and falsely suggesting onsite verification.
WND will release an important, exclusive update on Fordow Monday morning.
