Grover Norquist is a Svengali, hiding behind the scenes building networks and alliances with some seriously nefarious people. He’s not a conservative, a RINO operative and someone who should be tossed out on his ear. Like I’ve said before, Gaffney has been front and center in exposing this jerk for years, and now bigger lights are beginning to shine on him due to his opposition to the Tea Party. Game on.

“Glenn, I think most people who know Grover only as a prominent anti-tax guy in the conservative movement would find that statement unbelievable, and to be honest with you I would’ve, but for the fact that I saw it first-hand as a result of sharing office space for what I think of seven biblically long years with Grover Norquist,” Gaffney remarked.  “I saw terrorists in his office space. I had colleagues come to me and say, ‘You know there’s a Muslim Brotherhood front operating out of his office suite?’”

Glenn Beck on Monday began what he said is “just the beginning” of his work to reveal the background and motivations of Grover Norquist, the founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform.

Beck began by playing recent clips of Norquist calling out Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for his efforts to derail Obamacare, noting that while he used to joke about the left’s portrayal of Norquist as a “big power player,” he’s since revised his dismissive opinion in light of the warnings that you “don’t ever take this guy on unless you’re prepared.”

Beck’s show Monday primarily concentrated on Norquist’s alleged connections to Islamists. He invited Frank Gaffney, the president of the Center for Security Policy, and Daniel Greenfield of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, to weigh in.

  1. For a long time GN was a respected, even feared, name in conservative circles. Read his wiki and see why:

    His name has been scrubbed from National Review Online’s archive of authors but his individual essays on NRO can be accessed via google.

    It was brave of Gaffney to take on Norquist, who is very powerful, though that power is beginning to wane thanks to exposure by the Center for Security Policy.

    The things we do for love: in his late 40s GN married a Muslim woman. Or maybe he turned to using his power to insert Muslim Brotherhood ppl into the government… and then met his future spouse?

    Norquist sponsored (paid for) the campaign of a man named Ramadan in the election in Loudon Co. here in VA (for a seat in the state assembly). Mr Ramadan had no prior experience in county affairs and no known affiliation with the Republican party state apparatus. IIRC, he also had no visible means of support beyond his very recent residence in the county and more troubling, no paper trail of any work history, etc. In the primary, thanks to Norquist’s money, he beat out a qualified person with a proven record of long service and then ran against a Democrat for the assembly seat. Ramadan won with less than one percent of the vote count. Under VA law, the loser was entitled to a free recount. Remarkably, the Democrat declined the free offer and let Mr. Ramadan be seated in the assembly. I have no idea what could have caused such generosity. At the time, I believe Ramadan was Virginia’s first Islamic representative.

    I talked to a Tea Party representative and she said they weren’t able to muster enough grass roots volunteers to mount an effective campaign against him or to beat back against Norquist’s money in fliers, TV and radio ads, etc.

    Since then, Norquist’s absolute power over conservatives at the national level has dropped. Not as many Congressmen and Senators feel the absolute need to sign on to his tax pledge – an act that used to be required if one wanted to campaign. His facade is cracking in other ways – e.g., Norquist has come out in favor of amnesty and open borders both of which are anathema to any conservative Republican.

    When Frank Gaffney began his work to expose the very troubling background on this heretofore conservative icon, no one would stand with him. I’m glad to say that is changing and the headlock that Norquist had on elected Republicans is finally slipping.

    Gaffney is a man of courage.

    1. Thanks Dymphna! You are so absolutely right about Frank, he put it all on the line, as he does with everything he does. A real patriot and conservative. Thanks for sharing this with my readers! Love ya!
