Act Boston has brought Iranian Born Activist Anni Cyrus to Massachusetts for a series of events.

I missed her speech at the American Legion in Newton due to work commitments but as you might guess CAIR (the Counsel for Islamic Relations) tried to shut down her speech before it started. Old friend Dianna Ploss of ACT put out a press release concerning the attempt:

Anni Cyrus and the organizers of this event condemn the attempt by CAIR-National to stifle free speech in our country. Making allegations that are without foundation against Anni Cyrus and the organizers of this event is a hypocritical attempt to promote an exclusive view of the world in the name of the common welfare.

Anni Cyrus, a noted speaker and activist, will be speaking on the danger of Islamization in the United States and around the world. Included in her talk is the role of Sharia, how it prohibits the rights of women, the rights of free speech, and the Constitutional rights we enjoy, including the First Amendment.

Anni Cyrus has been a strong voice in the defense of women and minorities in Islamic countries. It is deeply ironic that her voice to protect others is mispresented by CAIR-National, and Anni Cyrus and the sponsors of her talk call upon CAIR-National to rescind its’ criticism, which is deeply repugnant to the principles upon which this country was founded.

I’m sorry this event went on without me and alas I am also unavailable for the private event on Thursday but there Will one more chance to See Ms. Cryus on Friday in Worcester as old friends Christopher Maider and the Worcester Tea Party bring her to the CAnal Bar on Water Street in Worcester

the Speech is called: Sharia Law, the real war on Women and no words are Truer spoken than that.

This will be the final Massachusetts stop in her Anti-Sharia tour and despite attempts to shut down this tour it continues on.

Things start at 7 PM, you can get tickets for $10 at the door

I intend to be there, I hope you can too.

Our Panel Mike LaChance, Chip Faulkner, Dianna Ploss & Christopher Maider

A week ago today in conjunction with the Worcester Tea Party we held our 2nd Event together at Tang Dynasty Restaurant President Trump a Year in Review and Looking Ahead.

There were some similarities with our first event with Stacy McCain last year, the venue, the fact that both the Worcester Tea Party and Granite Grok recorded the event and that the food was served a little later than expected (about 12:30) which delayed the proceedings and as before once the food was served everyone enjoyed it tremendously which practically guarantees our next event will be at the same spotl

Unlike the last event we had a few people unexpected guests show up.  One of them was Dr. Scott Lively who made a few remarks to the crowd before things got started.

Dr. Lively is going to challenge Charlie Baker from the right for the GOP nomination.

Also speaking was one of the many candidates vying for the nomination to challenge Elizabeth Warren this time around, Heidi Wellman who I interviewed after the event.

I didn’t record the event myself as both WTP and Granite Grok were doing so (and frankly I was too busy with the event itself to bother with that side of it.) As of today only the Granite Grok raw feed is up which I include below. The speeches begin at 12:46

There were some lively exchanges and disagreements on the panel particularly on the subject of the president’s tweets but things flowed very well. We passed out index cards so the crowd could submit questions and it wasn’t long into the event that I went to them. The audience had great questions and it led to a lively and interesting event right to the end at which time Matt O’Brien who did yeoman’s work getting things going gave the closing remarks

Once things were all done came the interviews. First I spoke to Chip Faulkner from Citizens for Limited Taxation.

Chip’s warnings about the latest attempt for the state to try to tax us bear listening to.

Next came Mike LaChance (who some of you might know as Alester from American Glob) who now writes at Legal Insurrection

and we finished up with Dianne Ploss from Ma for Trump and Act For America

Her MA for Trump Christmas party will be tomorrow (it was delayed due to illness in the family but you can still catch it) It’s only $25 which includes a DJ and Chinese food. You can find details for the party here.

It was a good time and a good discussion and as before people left knowing a lot more than when they came.  If you were one of those folks thanks so much for coming.  If you missed it, make sure you show up for our next event.

When I spoke at the Friday Morning Group a few weeks ago I was preceded by Dianna Ploss formerly of the Trump Campaign now the new head of the Boston Chapter of Act For America

She was talking about her Sept 9th event that unfortunately was going to conflict with my Stacy McCain in Leominster, I say was because that event is a casualty of Boston.

ACT for America is canceling its America First Rallies, previously scheduled for Saturday, September 9, “out of an abundance of caution” due “to the recent violence in America and in Europe.” The national security organization will instead replace the 67 rallies organized across 36 states with an online “Day of ACTion.”
In a press release, exclusively given to Breitbart News, event organizers say the reason for making the difficult decision “is to contribute to the de-escalation of rising tension and violence in America while pursuing the organization’s goal of a safe and secure America.”

This was the real goal of the tactics of ANTIFA and the media, to silence and marginalize effective opposition voices. That this has happened is a national disgrace.

On the bright side, if you are a member of ACT Boston and are looking for something to do Saturday Sept 9th might I suggest you click here to join us for Stacy McCain event in Leominster, I would be proud to have you join us. You can get your tickets here.

Yesterday in a pouring rain I traveled to Hudson Mass to cover Brigitte Gabriel at the Portuguese American Club.

Yesterday Robert Spencer 60 people came to see Robert Spencer speak at the VFW in Natick Massachusetts

IMG_0007

People came to see him

Even from as far away as NJ to Support Robert after he was dropped from the Worcester Catholic Men’s Conference

This Event was sponsored by the local act Chapter:

IMG_0012

And Mr. Spencer’s remarks ran about 45 minutes

where he talked about Islam and free speech

He spent a fair amount of time signing books and also stood for an interview with me on the evening and the situation with the Diocese of Worcester:

But the majority of his time was spent in the Q & A for the 70 or so attendees for the speech

on Sunni vs Shia Islam:

Whitewashing Islam in education

and much more (below the fold)

Robert will be my Guest on DaTechGuy on DaRadio March 9th to speak further about this situation.

I’m in the middle so to speak. I know the Bishop and his spokesperson and am also a friend of Robert’s. If the goal is to avoid controversy, that has failed spectacularly. The question now become, what is the thing that is just and right? Or put another way, this is much like the New Evangelism. We are going to get considerable pushback when we go to boldly proclaim the truth of the message of the Church of Christ. Will we have the courage to speak when objections are made by those who wish to silence us?

I urge you to pray for all concerned that God may grant the gift of discernment.

Meanwhile the rest of the Q & A follows:

While the Diocese of Worcester has chosen to resend the invitation of my friend Robert Spencer to speak at the Catholic Men’s Conference in Worcester. You can still see him speak if you are a Catholic from Worcester County.

Tonight Mr. Spencer will be appearing at the Natick VFW Post 1274 this evening at 7 PM to speak about the “Organization of Islamic Cooperation” a UN organization whose agenda is to criminalize any critique of Islam.

I would urge people were planning to attend the Catholic Men Conference in Worcester Next month to consider offering the Suggested donation of $20 and see what the local Islamic groups and the Boston Globe didn’t want you to hear.

Then again considering what our Islamic friends are doing to Catholics in Nigeria

Those are (were) people of the Catholic faith and citizens of Nigeria. They were reportedly burned alive in Nigeria by Muslims.

Perhaps one shouldn’t be surprised to see intimidation of Catholics by Muslims be successful.

Via the Brenner Brief that asks a simple question:

Why in the world isn’t the mainstream media covering this? Because it doesn’t fit their perfect little meme that the Christians are mean and evil to the innocent Muslims. A few blogs have covered this, but that’s all.

I’m sure Lisa Wangsness will get around to it eventually





Update: As of today here we are on this week’s goal:

[thermometer raised=190 target=300 width=150 height =200 ]

Thursday I has the pleasure of seeing Claire Lopez at the Natick VFW

She was sponsored by Act Framingham chapter

She spoke on the Muslim Brotherhood

And Huma Abedin

She took plenty of questions

Including mine on Demographics

The gist of her speech was the connection between the Muslim Brotherhood, Huma Abedin and the tactics being used to modify US policy

Ms. Lopez has 20 years as a CIA analyst her presentation was complete and in some ways dry, but it is those dry facts that are necessary

The full set of videos & photos are below the jump

General tactics

Will Israel hit Iran?

What do we do with what we know?

Is Europe fighting back

And finally what the US seems to favor the Muslim brotherhood these days


………………………

A great presentation Claire

Claire Lopez before her speech

And the rest of the pictures

I interviewed Claire Lopez after her event at the Natick VFW Aug 16th

Claire has 20+ years in the CIA and knows what she is talking about.

I’ll have a full report on the VFW event later in the day
