Tammy Duckworth’s Radical Ties
Democrats, labor and progressives are hoping to win back several Republican held seats in Illinois and the 8th Congressional District [CD] is one of them currently held by Republican Joe Walsh. His opponent is Democratic candidate Tammy Duckworth. The race presents stark choices for voters.
In a legitimate comparable tone – Ms. Duckworth can best be described as a controversial ultra-liberal, tax and spend Progressive heavily funded by out-of-state special interests and the Chicago machine. Congressman Walsh has been described as a ‘controversial Tea Party-backed freshman’ who has been particularly vocal in urging Congress to reduce spending and cut taxes.
For the voters in the IL-8th, this is not a Coke vs. Pepsi decision.
There are clear ties between the Democratic Party’s Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC), the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and the Communist Party USA (CPUSA). The DSA of America of Rockford, Ill. financially supported Barack Obama to run for Illinois State Senate. And in 2006, Ms. Duckworth garnered support from the Communist Party USA and far-left communist Frank Lumpkin who, according to the Marxist news site Peoples World, led a labor walk for her as a candidate for the IL 6th CD.
When Barack Obama won in 2008, the Editors and Writers of the Socialist paper ‘In These Times’ selected Ms. Duckworth as one of their preferred top Progressive choices for a potential Obama Cabinet post. Their stated goal was to influence a newly-elected President Obama in representing the most progressive Cabinet in contemporary history.
It would be no surprise then that her admirer would be Rep. Jan Schakowsky, the most Progressive member in Congress, who stated in this video, ‘Americans don’t deserve to keep all their money,’ asserting the IRS should have the right to seize up to 49% of your earned income in taxes. In 2006, her lobbyist husband, was convicted of bank fraud and tax evasion and served time in prison.
Worse, Ms. Duckworth is also tied at the hip with the Muslim advocacy group CAIR. CAIR is a Muslim Brotherhood group. They were named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history. And notably, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI have severed all ties with CAIR because of their radical ties to terrorism and Hamas.
In August, Mr. Walsh had warned of a radical strain of Islam in the USA, including the Chicago suburbs. Ms. Duckworth claimed such talk was inflammatory rhetoric, propagating fear, hate, and isolating Muslims. Yet, on Sept 14, a Muslim man was arrested after attempting to detonate a car bomb in front of a busy downtown Chicago bar.
After a rigorous undercover FBI operation, the affidavit alleges that, Abel Daoud confirmed his belief in killing Americans in a terrorist attack. Mr. Daoud is from the Chicago suburbs. Watch Rep. Walsh, one-month prior, as he warned us to the growing homegrown threat that radical Islam poses to America. The Congressman issued this statement following the thwarted Sept 14 terrorist attack.
So on Sept 16th, just days after the FBI-foiled the Jihad bomber “Muslim terrorist attack’, what does uber left-wing Ms. Duckworth do? She doubled down in her Hamas-linked-CAIR support, put on a hijab and stated: the growing minority population makes the white community uncomfortable, and whites would have to overcome their ‘racism.’
Introducing her at that meeting was the Executive Director of the Chicago chapter of Hamas-CAIR, Ahmed Rehab. Watch Mr. Rehab discuss the controversial Hizb-ut-Tahrir Islamic supremacist conference in Chicago in June, 2009. That same Hizb ut-Tahrir conference featured this illuminating exchange between an audience questioner and a conference speaker. And, here is Mr. Rehab discussing the Islamic Center near Ground Zero.
Beyond Ms. Duckworth’s Muslim and Communist ties, she carefully crafts a message of being part of OWS’s 99%, despite owning a private plane and two homes. Hand-picked choice of Rahm Emanuel, Nancy Pelosi, Mr. Obama and the corrupt Chicago Machine, her campaign is being run by Obama Advisor and Democrat-machine loyalist David Axelrod.
In Chicago, Ms. Duckworth is what we would call, a “patronage” pick for a job. Patronage always trumps talent. She was originally part of, the now convicted felon, Governor Rod Blagojevich (Blago) crew of Illinois state agency appointees – that by itself should draw an epic warning flag. In Chicago, radical ties always breeds corruption.
