It was Rove. It wasn't Hamas-CAIR or the SPLC or Rachel Maddow of any of the jackbooted tools of Islamic supremacists on the left that drew blood against the counter-jihad movement -- it was Rove.

He was most responsible for Bush's nonsense about Islam being a "religion of peace." There were other voices. There were more rational, more reasoned voices, such as Rumsfeld and Doug Feith, who at least wanted to address the jihad threat.

It was Rove. He was Barzini. Rove made it toxic at center-right media outlets to talk about jihad and Islamic supremacism.

At Fox, he was wrong about election night. He got it all wrong on Romney, just like Dick Morris, but Morris was fired. Rove was not.

Rove is the most powerful fixer on the right. And he gave tens of millions of dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood operative Norquest.

What's his game?

"Documents: Karl Rove Gave Grover Norquist $26 Million in 2012" by Matthew Boyle, Breitbart, November 26, 2013


Tax documents from Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS show that Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) is largely funded by Rove, ProPublica’s Kim Barker reports.

“Social welfare nonprofits, also known as dark money groups because they don't have to report their donors, are allowed to spend money on politics as long as their primary purpose is social welfare,” Barker wrote on Monday. “The groups often count so-called issue ads that stop short of advocating for or against a candidate and grants toward that social welfare mission. Since the Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United decision allowed corporations and unions to spend directly on election ads, these nonprofits have turned into the vehicle of choice for anonymous spending, dumping more than $254 million into the 2012 elections. Of the 150 or so social welfare nonprofits that reported spending to the Federal Election Commission during the 2012 election cycle, Crossroads was king, the biggest anonymous spender by far. Americans for Tax Reform came in fourth, with $15.8 million.”

On its 2012 tax return, Barker reported, the biggest grant Rove’s Crossroads GPS gave to anybody was a $26.4 million grant it gave to Norquist’s ATR for “social welfare.”

There are also questions about the legality of Rove’s and Norquist’s arrangement, Barker noted throughout her piece, questioning the use of the money for politicking.

“On its 2012 tax return, GOP strategist Karl Rove's dark money behemoth Crossroads GPS justified its status as a tax-exempt social welfare group in part by citing its grants of $35 million to other similarly aligned nonprofits,” Barker wrote. “The return, signed under penalty of perjury, specified that the grants would be used for social welfare purposes, ‘and not for political expenditures, consistent with the organization's tax-exempt mission.’”

But, Barker reports, “that is not what happened.”

Barker notes that the tax return documents, which were made public by Rove’s group last week, show that $11.2 million worth of the funding Rove’s group gave to Norquist’s ATR were spent on “political activities expressly advocating for or against candidates.” That means that $85.7 million of Rove’s group’s 2012 activities were political, instead of the $74.5 million it reported to the IRS.

Marcus Owens, the former head of the IRS’s Exempt Organizations division, told ProPublica that because of the way Norquist’s ATR operated with Rove’s Crossroads GPS’s money last year, Norquist is a “bad grantee.”

"They have a bad grantee here," Owens said. "My question would be, What has Crossroads done to recover that money?' That's what the IRS would expect."

ATR spokesman John Kartch and Rove spokesman Jonathan Collegio both declined to answer specific questions from ProPublica about the grant.

But Collegio did suggest to ProPublica, however, that perhaps the money Norquist’s group spent with Rove’s grant on politicking had been carried over from 2011. “Were resources carried over from 2011?” Collegio asked in an email to Barker.

“But after consulting with tax experts, ProPublica determined Americans for Tax Reform couldn't have used resources from 2011 for the political spending,” Barker wrote in response to Collegio’s attempt to spin her on Rove’s behalf.

“That's called bullshit with a serving of horseshit on the side,” Owens, the former IRS official, said in response as well.

"But I didn't know until this day, that it was Rove all along."

"And he gave tens of millions of dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood operative Norquist"

I didn't know that Norquist was sympathetic to the MB. I looked him up. His Wiki page says he was raised Methodist and married a Palestinian Muslim woman. That's the only reference to those sympathies.

Grover is hip deep in ties to radical muslims...

“Glenn, I think most people who know Grover only as a prominent anti-tax guy in the conservative movement would find that statement unbelievable,” said Center for Security Policy President Frank Gaffney, “but for the fact that I saw it first-hand.”

“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?’” Gaffney recalled. He specifically said that American Muslim Council founder Abdul Rahman al-Amoudi, an activist now in prison for his role in an effort to assassinate Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah, as one of those people who frequented Norquist’s office.

You can call Beck a kook, but Gaffney is a solid guy. There are lots of stories like this one about how Grover circulates in very seedy, radical circles.

I've read a few articles that shine some light on Norquist; such as this one by Walid Shoebat: http://shoebat.com/2013/10/22/norquist-p...attacking-cruz/
I take the article FWIW, since it cites a 2001 article by Franklin Foer, editor of New Republic, a left-wing rag.
