Tim Kaine: Muslim Brotherhood Ties, Communist Groupie, And Grifter
Now that there's a fair amount of noise about Mrs. Clinton being forced to drop out of the race (remember just a short time ago when her campaign was threatening the media not to make an issue out of her health?)there's been some speculation about Tim Kaine, her running mate taking over the top slot.
He's escaped much scrutiny thus far, so let's take a look at him, shall we? it isn't a pretty sight, believe me.
First of all, when you do some research, you find out that Kaine was quite the Sandinista groupie at one time and has publicly never regretted it. The reverse, in fact.
Even Pravda on the Hudson presented a sanitized version of Kaine's
life transforming "mission" trip to Latin America in 1980. What this story leaves out, of course, is Kaine's wholesale embrace of the Sandinistas and radical 'liberation theology', something even Pope Francis has disavowed.
What it was, of course, was a Soviet disinformation plan to use radical elements to infiltrate the Catholic Church and bring Catholic Latin American countries under the Soviet thumb. The highest ranking Soviet defector, General Ion Pacepa has openly admitted that he participated in this.
Liberation theology became a big deal among certain Jesuits, some of whom were actually expelled from Latin American countries after being arrested for fomenting communist revolution and for gunrunning. This happened while Kaine was on his mission, and one extremely radical American-born Jesuit who was actually expelled from the order was Father Jim Carney. That's the priest Pravda-on-the-Hudson tells us Kaine sought out as his mentor, without, of course, much info on who Father Carney actually was.
Carney was a full-blown communist apparatchnik. In 1983, Carney was part of a 96-man unit that invaded Honduras to violently export the Sandinista Communist 'revolution'* there too, using Cuban and Nicaraguan trained guerillas led by Jose Reyes Mata, one of the murderous Che Guevara's officers n Bolivia.
Honduran troops fortunately intercepted the communist guerrillas,and Reyes Mata was captured and killed, along with Carney. Kaine wrote publicly at that time, blaming America his death. The idea of the Sandinistas brutalizing and enslaving the Honduran people as they had in Nicaragua didn't bother him one bit. He was, as they say, a true believer.
And he still is. Today, his mentor in Liberation theology is someone who most people consider Carney's successor, Father Melo, who favors Soviet-style collectivism and land distribution.
Then, there's Tim Kaine's Muslim Brotherhood ties.
As governor of Virginia, Kaine appointed a Hamas supporter to a state immigration commission, spoke at a dinner honoring a Muslim Brotherhood terrorist suspect and took donations from well-known Islamist groups.
In 2007, Governor Kaine appointed Dr. Esam Omeish, the president of the Muslim American Society (MAS), one of the Muslim Brotherhood's front groups here in America.
Omeish also served for two years on the national board of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), which the Justice Department also labeled as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, which was basically a money laundering scam for Hamas. Omeish would be in jail if it wasn't for President Obama and former attorney general Eric Holder.
Kaine was forced to fire him, but only after heavy pressure from Virginia delegates and the press when online videos of Omeish surfaced showing him accusing Israel of genocide against Palestinians and exhorting Muslims to “the jihad way.”
This is by no means Kaine's only tie to Islamists. In September 2011, Kaine spoke at a “Candidates Night” dinner organized by the New Dominion PAC that presented a Lifetime Achievement Award for Jamal Barzinji, a prominent figure in America's Muslim Brotherhood who almost was prosecuted for material aid to terrorism until the Obama Administration let him off the hook like Omeish and the other Islamists.
Barzinji has played a major role in nearly every Brotherhood front in the U.S. and was vice president of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), which is a name my readers might recognize. Barzinji's group was closely allied to Palestinian Islamic Jihad operative Sami Al-Arian who was convicted by the Bush Administration under the RICO statutes for conspiracy to commit aid to terrorism among other things.
Barzinji's IIIT also donated money to Kaine's campaign, giving him $10,000 in 2011 via the New Dominion PAC, the organization that held the event honoring Barzinji that Kaine spoke at. The Barzinji-tied New Dominion PAC also donated $43,050 to Kaine’s gubernatorial campaign.
This PAC has very strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and the Democratic Party in Virginia, and gave Kaine and others almost $257,000 in donations. Barzinji’s grandson served in Governor McAuliffe’s administration before becoming the Obama Administration’s liaison to the Muslim-American community.
Another $4,300 donated to Kaine’s Senate campaign in 2011-2012 came from officials of the aforementioned Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Another $3,500 came from Hisham Al-Talib, a leader from Barzinji’s IIIT organization.
This likely explains why Tim Kaine was a leader in trying to dis-invite Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu from speaking to a joint session of Congress in March of 2015 and boycotted the speech like a lot of other Democrats when he was unsuccessful. it's about what you can expect when a politician cheerfully takes money from Islamist groups and appoints a Hamas ally to a high state position.
Finally, we get to Tim Kaine's real qualification as Hillary's Mini-Me, his appetite for using his position to feather his nest.
As Lieutenant Governor and Governor, Kaine reportedly “took advantage of the state’s lax gift laws to receive,” among other things, “an $18,000 Caribbean vacation, $5,500 in clothes and a trip to watch George Mason University play in the NCAA basketball Final Four during his years as lieutenant governor and governor.” The report found that Kaine “reported more than $160,000 in gifts from 2001 to 2009, mostly for travel to and from political events and conferences.”
This is the same sort of thing Republican governor Bob McDonnell was indicted form but Kaine apparently was able to use his connections to skate on.
So now you know a lot about who Tim Kaine is. It's easy to see why Clinton picked him...but the political rationale, that he can carry Virginia for her is something he may not be able to swing. He's not particularly well thought of in a lot of circles there, even with Northern Virginia loaded with fellow Democrat feeders at the Obama Administration's trough in DC.
I'll finish up by saying that there's very little chance of Mrs. Clinton dropping out of the race if she's still breathing. Her presidency has already been sold at lucrative prices to numerous donors foreign and domestic who expect favorable treatment on the come for their Clinton Foundation donations, speaking gigs for her disreputable husband and campaign contributions.
If she loses, that's one thing. It's an investment that didn't come off. But if she drops out, they're going to be knocking on the Clinton's door wanting their money back and the interaction is going to get extremely unpleasant when they find out she can't give the money back, either because it's already been spent or because it's locked up in the Foundation. She has to continue.
