Muslim Cleric from Contentious Fox and CNN Interviews Arrested in Counterterrorism Raid

 

Published on Sep 26, 2014

The Muslim cleric featured in heated interviews on both CNN and Fox News last month was arrested Thursday as part of a London police counterterrorism raid.

 

According to The Guardian, Anjem Choudary was among nine Islamic men arrested on suspicion of “being members of a proscribed organization, or supporting a proscribed organization, as well as encouraging terrorism.”

 

Choudary was once spokesman for al-Muhajiroun, a radical group now banned in England. The organization has reformed under various aliases, officials allege, while the cleric himself has denied ever supporting acts of terror.

 

Mediaite readers may be familiar with Choudary from his appearances on Fox’s Hannity and CNN’s Reliable Sources. Both TV hits were shouting matches: In the latter, host Brian Stelter confronted the cleric for making an off-color 9/11 joke during soundcheck; in the former, Sean Hannity shouted at the cleric, “Are you that dumb or ignorant?” during a discussion of “Sharia law.”

“A Good Partner, an Equal Partner, and a Partner for the Long Term”

 

Yesterday, President Obama spoke to a crowd that included 50 African leaders, at the U.S.-Africa Business Forum in Washington, D.C. The Business Forum was part of the historic three-day U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit — the largest event any U.S. President has held with African heads of state and government.

 

The President highlighted Africa’s impressive economic growth, and made clear that America will be a partner in its success — “a good partner, an equal partner, and a partner for the long term.”

 

Watch the President’s remarks, and see how the U.S. is boosting economic ties with Africa.

 

“I want Africans buying more American products. I want Americans buying more African products.”

 

 

Vice President Biden also spoke at the the Business Forum today, describing the strengthening relationship between the United States and Africa and highlighting the economic progress across the African continent.

 

“The question is no longer what we can do for Africa, but what we can do with Africa,” the Vice President said. This represents an important and exciting shift in the dynamic between the United States and its African partners — and provides a look into our relationship with many African states moving forward.

 

 

“It’s never, ever been a good bet to bet against America,” the Vice President noted. “And America is betting on Africa.”

U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit: Climate Change Makes Sustainable Development Crucial to Africa

 

This week, more than 40 heads of state and government from across Africa are joining President Obama in Washington for the first-ever U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit. Since 2000, the continent has seen enormous progress. Rates of extreme poverty and hunger are down. The number of new HIV infections in sub-Saharan Africa dropped by almost 40 percent between 2001 and 2012. Access to education and health care is on the upswing.

 

As a result, Africa today is a continent of opportunity. Six of the 10 fastest-growing economies are on the African continent, driven by a rising middle class and a generation of optimistic young people. By 2035, the continent will have a working-age population bigger than that of China or India.

 

This is the time for the United States and African leaders to look beyond the crises of the moment to the opportunities the next 10 to 15 years have in store — which is why the theme of this week’s Leaders Summit is “Investing in the Next Generation.”

 

A key part of that agenda hinges on helping African nations develop sustainable economies whose future growth is not constrained by the threat of climate change and environmental degradation. That’s why the Leaders Summit highlights the ways that the United States and Africa are partnering to address both the drivers and impacts of climate change.

John Podesta: “The Cost of Inaction”

 

Today, John Podesta, Counselor to the President, sent the following message to the White House email list. Want to be on the list? Sign up for updates.

 


 

The facts are in. The science is definitive. The question is no longer whether climate change is happening, but whether we can afford not to act.

 

In the western United States, changes in our climate are fueling wildfire seasons that are longer and more intense — putting people, communities, and businesses at risk.

 

As we’re seeing right now, wildfires unquestionably have devastating impacts on the lives of many Americans. This weekend, California declared a state of emergency as two major wildfires scorched acres of land, threatening towns and forcing many to evacuate. These are just two of the 14 fires that are currently burning throughout the state.

 

Make no mistake: The cost of inaction on wildfires and climate change is too high a price for Americans to pay, particularly when we have a chance to address this right now.

 

Watch as President Obama’s Science Advisor Dr. John Holdren breaks down exactly why this is a problem that we must meet head-on — and pass it along to someone who needs to see it.

Welcoming Congressional Action on Key National Security Tools

 

 

Today, Congress took an important step forward in making sure that we’re developing the capabilities necessary to make America safer.

 

As the President’s Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Advisor, I welcome the Senate Appropriations Defense Subcommittee markup of the FY 2015 Defense Appropriations Act. Its ultimate passage would allow us to move forward on a number of priority national security initiatives, including the Counterterrorism Partnerships Fund (CTPF).

 

As President Obama announced during his West Point speech in May, this new fund will help us take the fight to terrorist organizations by strengthening the capacity of our friends on the frontlines. The CTPF presents a new, sustainable model for strategic engagement with our partners from South Asia to the Sahel. Because today’s principal terrorist threats no longer emanate from al-Qa’ida central leadership but from an evolving and decentralized set of actors, we need the flexibility to develop tailored regional solutions to terrorist groups that pose the greatest threat to the United States, wherever they are located.

 

These funds would allow us to train, equip, advise, and operationally enable our partners to counter them — ultimately leading us to rely less on U.S. forces and more on our frontline allies. The CTPF would also support long-term security sector and governance initiatives, because we know that our counterterrorism success over the long run ultimately depends on partnering with and developing professional and accountable security forces and supporting institutions.

 

I also applaud the inclusion of new authorities related to Syria that would allow us to more effectively partner with appropriately vetted members of the moderate Syrian armed opposition. Importantly, this train and equip mission could help us to better protect Syrian civilians, pressure the regime, and counter terrorist threats emanating from the country’s contested and ungoverned areas — including from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

 

In a turbulent and uncertain world, the Senate today took an important step forward in providing vital tools to help our military and counterterrorism professionals confront this challenge.

Statement by the Press Secretary

It is disappointing that Speaker Boehner and Congressional Republicans have decided to waste time and taxpayer dollars on a political stunt. At a time when Washington should be working to expand economic opportunities for the middle class, Republican leaders in Congress are playing Washington politics rather than working with the President on behalf of hardworking Americans. As the President said today, he is doing his job – lawsuit or not – and it’s time Republicans in Congress did theirs.

 

 

Statement by the President on the Confirmation of Shaun Donovan as the Director of the Office of Management and Budget

I am pleased that Republicans and Democrats in the Senate today confirmed Shaun Donovan as the next Director of the Office of Management and Budget. From his outstanding work at HUD helping to rebuild our housing market to his leadership in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Shaun has played a crucial role in our efforts to battle back from the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes and expand opportunity for more Americans. While we have made significant strides by investing in areas that are helping to grow the economy, creating good jobs, and promoting more effective and efficient management in government, Shaun knows there is more work to do, and today’s bipartisan vote ensures the dedicated professionals at OMB will have a proven, effective leader to build on the progress we’ve made.

Second family says Petersburg Police went too far
PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) – Another family has come forward claiming Petersburg Police came on their front porch and tried to stop them from shooting video of arrests happening right in front of their home.

 

The family reached out to the On Your Side Investigators and shared dramatic cell phone video. The incident led to a violent confrontation.

 

Cell phone video shows JaQuan Fisher, 17, standing on his own front porch recording the arrests happening on Rome Street. In the video, an officer is heard saying, “Unless you want me to take your phone from you,” before there is a struggle and video goes to black.

 

“I was right here. I pulled out my phone,” JaQuan said, pointing to where he was standing.

 

Petersburg Police had just busted several people at a home next door. They were handcuffing the suspects in front of Fisher’s home. He walked out onto the porch and his cousin—who was one of the people being arrested–yelled, “Start recording.”

 

“[The officer] came off the porch and said, ‘You want me to take your phone?'” Fisher said. “I put my phone in my pocket and then when he tried to take my phone, I guess he thought he was going to get my phone and he shoved me. I shoved him back.”

 

Fisher’s sister also started taking cell phone video. She captured the violence that followed.

 

“They was trying to grab my son off the porch. I was trying to tell my boyfriend to open the door so we can get in the house,” Debra Fisher said. She is JaQuan’s mother and can be seen on the video wrestling with officers.

 

A second officer arrived during the struggle. There was an object in his hand. The family says he started spraying mace.

 

“They maced each other, too. He just started mace-ing everywhere,” Debra Fisher said.

 

A third officer came rushing in to the chaos and put Debra into a choke hold, nearly pulling her backward off the porch.

 

JaQuan Fisher was charged with two counts of felony assault on law enforcement. Prosecutors eventually dropped one charge and reduced the other to a misdemeanor. He pleaded guilty to that charge. His mother didn’t have an attorney, and a judge found her guilty of obstructing justice.

 

For the family, this wasn’t about the fight on the porch. It’s why they were even bothered by police to begin with.

 

“We have a right to do what we want to do with our phone sitting on your porch. Sitting on my porch,” Debra Fisher said.

 

Two months prior to this incident on April 10, there was another confrontation between a Petersburg resident and police caught on cell phone video.

 

“Get inside now. Inside. You can record all you want to,” an officer yelled in this video from June. Devin Thomas, 17, was recording video of an arrest when officers tried to make him leave a public street. That also led to a violent confrontation, again with a bystander not involved in the original police arrest.

 

“When you start having a pattern of encounters like this, regardless of who’s right or wrong, just the pattern and the questions that are raised erodes the public confidence in the police and public trust in the police,” Steven Benjamin said. He’s a prominent defense attorney and also NBC12’s legal analyst.

 

“Let’s be real clear. You have the absolute right to stand on your front porch and record what’s going on in your front yard,” Benjamin said.

 

He has no inside knowledge of the cases and doesn’t know what information police had. He can only see what you do, what’s on the videos. He says what he does see raises some red flags.

 

“Because an officer decided to prohibit what was the video recording being made on the porch, you then had the police creating a separate encounter that very quickly got out of control, putting the other officers at risk,” he said.

 

He also questions the use of the choke hold.

 

“It’s a dangerous procedure and it’s very far along that continuum of force, that gradual increase of force that officers are allowed to use to protect themselves. It can be very dangerous to hold a person in place like that,” Benjamin said. What’s captured on video suggests, “That there is a need for training, additional training, perhaps a different approach to their policing and perhaps some discipline.”

 

We gave Petersburg Police a few days notice and requested an on camera interview. We wanted to find out the agency’s perspective as to what was going on in the video.

 

The agency pointed out Debra Fisher was charged with obstruction and found guilty in a court of law. The agency went on to say, “All subject resistance reports are reviewed by the department and no officers were disciplined or transferred to other positions within the department because of the case. Officers are trained to use the least amount of force. No complaints have been filed and the event happened nearly 3 months ago. Officers do not hinder the public from recording video as it is their right to do so.”

It’s time for a 21st-century workplace that works for all Americans.

 

The modern family looks different than it ever has before. In 63 percent of families with children, all parents work. 32 percent of families with children are single-parent families. And yet, most moms and dads don’t have access to paid leave or flexible workplaces. On average, women are still earning 77 cents to every dollar a man doing the same work earns.

 

It’s time for workplace policies that give all workers the best chance to succeed at work and at home.

 

Join us for a conversation on working families for a 21st Century workplace at the Working Families Summit on June 23rd. Visit WorkingFamiliesSummit.org to learn more.
