M Calls Al Jazeera a Homeland Security Threat

In the wake of Al Jazeera’s $100 million payoff to former Vice President Al Gore, Accuracy in Media is urging a congressional probe into the controversial operations of foreign propaganda channel Al Jazeera on American soil. Cliff Kincaid, Director of the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism, said, “It is time for the House Homeland Security Committee under its new chairman, Rep. Michael McCaul, to examine how Al Jazeera’s anti-American programming is seeking to gain a dangerous foothold in the United States through the acquisition of Al Gore’s Current TV cable channel.”
The mysterious transaction reportedly involves a $500 million deal with $100 million of that going to Al Gore personally.

The main reason is to demonstrate against the company and the Muslim that we are fighting back. They understand only cancellation action (money).

When will the media notice that al-Jazeera America is the Muslim Brotherhood channel?
By Diana West
"Al-Jazeera America": The very name gives me the heebie-jeebies. What does Al-Jazeera have to do with America?
Everything, if the cheers and happy talk of the American press corps are any measure. Entranced, media critics have greeted the rollout of "AJA" as that of just another news company, not the propaganda arm of monied Qatari despots. But no matter how many American journalists "anchor" Al-Jazeera America's news desks, a 24/7 Muslim Brotherhood channel is now beaming into living rooms across the country. There is no changing the fact that Al-Jazeera's leading personality is the Muslim Brotherhood cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi.
In dispensing Islamic clerical wisdom, Qaradawi has called for the murder of U.S. soldiers and Jews. Earlier this year on his own popular Al-Jazeera show, Qaradawi also affirmed the Islamic penalty for "apostasy," or leaving Islam: death. Qaradawi, meanwhile, isn't just a big man with the Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Jazeera. He is also a prized personage in Qatar. In a public ceremony in June, Qatar's new emir, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, "planted a kiss on Al Qaradawi's head and then his shoulder," Gulf News reported.
But you could have fooled the U.S. press corps. The headlines this week read like Al-Jazeera press releases: "Al Jazeera America Promises a More Sober Look at the News" (New York Times); "Al Jazeera Promises Meatier News" (Associated Press). "To be sure, the network has a handsome look," The Washington Post critiqued.
NPR is about as close as we get to hard-hitting on the network's launch, which is already a bad sign. "Critics say Al-Jazeera will have trouble shaking its image in the U.S. at least, as a news source with terrorist ties," Celeste Headlee said by way of introducing Brian Stelter, the media reporter for The New York Times. Was she talking about Al-Jazeera's terrorist tilt -- or maybe the 2008 on-air birthday party Al-Jazeera threw for Palestinian terrorist Samir Kuntar, who in 1979 killed four Israelis, including a 4-year-old girl whose head he bashed against a rock until she was dead?
We don't know. "Terrorist ties" don't come up again.
"This is going to be a straightforward, down the middle, just-the-facts-ma'am style of television news," Stelter explained. Of course, if terrorism didn't come up in the NPR interview, the "diversity" of the on-air talent did. Stelter said, "One of the (Al-Jazeera America) primetime anchors, Joie Chen, said to me when I interviewed her last week, 'I would challenge you to find any television news operation that's more diverse than we are.'"
The perfect metaphor for all of the skin-deep analysis.
This latest installment in the long fall of American journalism began last year when Al Gore sold his Current TV network for $500 million to Al-Jazeera -- instead of to Glenn Beck. The price tag, of course, was even higher than the $400 million the last emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al Thani (father of the Qaradawi-kissing new emir) pledged to Hamas, also last year. But who's counting -- at least in the media?

Beneath any veneer of luxury, Qatar is a brutal dictatorship where a poet who criticized the emir was sentenced to life in prison. Al-Jazeera's coverage of the sentencing, by the way, was practically non-existent. (The poet's sentence was later commuted to 15 years.) Naturally, emirate-owned media protect the emirate. Come to think of it, it's against Qatari law to criticize the emirate or Islam. Meanwhile, it is a 21st-century fact that tiny Qatar spends large sums of money to combat its image problem in the rest of the world. It spends even larger sums on war to shape the world itself. Al-Jazeera America and Hamas, in other words, are only part of the picture.
Other attempts to buy influence would include donations to the Clinton Foundation (between $1 and $5 million, as of 2008) and the Brookings Institution (between $2.5 and $5 million in 2012 alone).
War is far more expensive.
In Libya and in Syria, we have seen influxes of Qatari cash adding up to billions of dollars to bankroll not "seasoned" American anchors but al-Qaida-linked jihadists. In Egypt, Qatar has backed Muslim Brother Mohammed Morsi from the start. Such interventionist advocacy, of course, meshes perfectly with President Obama's support for these same "Arab Spring" movements -- part of the reason Americans don't seem to know which end is up anymore.
I'm sure Al-Jazeera America will be happy to explain.

Subject: Cable TV's NEW Channels...

Please call COMCAST Cable TV at 1-800-266-2278 and CANCEL your cable TV subscription!
COMCAST CABLE TV is now carrying the Al Jazeera Media Network, a TV network based in Qatar.
Qatar, a sponsor of Islamic terrorism, is now broadcasting "Al Jazeera America", 24 hours a day, 7 days a week inside millions of American homes.
"Al Jazeera America" (listed as AJAM) was launched in the U.S. August 20th and is now being broadcast nationwide by COMCAST CABLE TV, DIRECT TV, DISH NETWORK, VERIZON and several smaller cable TV providers.
Time Warner Cable TV is not carrying the Al Jazeera Network but a spokeswoman for Time Warner said that the company is already in active discussions with Al Jazeera. 
AT&T CABLE TV is the ONLY cable TV company refusing to carry the Al Jazeera Media Network!
Because of their decision, AT&T is now being SUED by the Al Jazeera conglomerate.
On August 1st, COMCAST also quietly added the "Pivot" network to their viewing lineup.
Pivot is a new 24 hour/day cable TV network targeting the "Millennial Generation" -  young people aged 15 to 34 years old.
Executives at Pivot say it provides entertainment to "inspire and accelerate social change", while the company's president states, "The company is dedicated to creating lasting, sustainable change through the power of storytelling and now we're bringing that to TV".
Pivot's lineup of shows includes daily (and oft repeated) episodes of "LITTLE MOSQUE ON THE PRAIRIE", a situation comedy about a group of fun loving, comical, peaceful and thoroughly Westernized Muslims living in a fictitious town somewhere out on the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada.
In this idyllic, fictitious Canadian paradise (ironically named "Mercy"), town residents (Muslims and infidels alike), gather together daily in "Fatima's Café" to sip coffee and Coca Cola, down burgers and fries (no pressure cookers found in Fatima's place), while working happily together on such family friendly, "fun" events like 
"ISLAMA-PALOOZA", a city wide celebration of all things Islamic.  
Apparently the inhabitants of Mercy never attended the Arab Festival in Dearborn, Michigan!  
Other shows currently being aired on Pivot are "Noble Exchange" and "Long Way Down", two programs showcasing Africa, activists, and socialist thought.
"Penny Revolution", is a smarmy attempt to persuade Millennials to part with their spare change and effect "social change" world wide. 
A serial documentary going by the name of "Jersey Strong", attempts to show the world that "unconventional families" are indeed valid and beautiful.
Family number 1: Two lesbian domestic partners living in pseudo wedded bliss while trying to run a law firm in New Jersey.
Family number 2: Who says that a former Crip and a current Blood gang banger, can't lovingly mentor/parent children who also happen to be members of opposing rival gangs?
Not Pivot of course...  
Brady Bunch eat your heart out!
Adding to the line up is a gender bending talk-reality show starring Meghan McCain (daughter of Sen. John McCain) who will highlight issues facing the LGBT community.
Pivot promises to be heavy on documentaries and socially conscious movies (they gave us the Al Gore flick, "An Inconvenient Truth"). 
Pivot also airs more mundane programming like, "Friday Night Lights and "Farscape." 
Abraham Lincoln stated, "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."
Networks like Al Jazeera America and Pivot are helping to destroy our culture, our children and our future as a freedom loving people.
Please alert your readers to these new cable TV channels and ask everyone to call Comcast Cable TV (1-800-266-2278) and CANCEL their cable TV subscriptions.
Be sure to tell COMCAST that you are canceling your cable TV subscription because they now carry the Al Jazeera and Pivot networks. 
AT&T cable TV subscriptions start at $29.99 per month!
There is strength in numbers and when companies like COMCAST begin to lose money, they sit up and take notice.
If enough people cancel their cable TV, Comcast (and other cable TV providers) will drop networks like Al Jazeera and Pivot form their line up.
