CAIR Settles with Victims in Virginia Fraud Case

This is news you aren’t going to see on cable TV or in the mainstream media.  After a decade of legal wrangling, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was finally facing a jury trial (to begin in September) in a case that alleged they had hired a phony lawyer to help clients with their immigration status among other legal matters.

A prospect of a public trial likely pushed the Muslim ‘rights’ organization to quietly settle the case in favor of the victims and their attorneys.

CAIR Settles with Fraud Victims After Two Adverse Court Decisions

 

Washington, D.C. (June 4, 2019) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has settled a case originally filed 11 years ago in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The lawsuit against CAIR was brought by the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) on behalf of five victims of a massive fraud perpetrated by a CAIR lawyer, Morris Days.

CAIR’s decision to finally settle the case came only after two very adverse court decisions. The first decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia reversed an earlier dismissal of the lawsuit brought by AFLC Co-Founders and Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi and Robert J. Muise. The Court of Appeals’ decision, the second appeal in this long-standing case that had included allegations of criminal racketeering by CAIR, mandated that the federal district court permit the case to go to a jury trial, set for September 2019.

The second court decision was by the trial court which refused to dismiss the consumer fraud statute count, which meant that AFLC’s clients would receive attorney’s fees irrespective of the amount the jury awarded as long as the jury found CAIR liable. Given the aggressively fought litigation over the past decade, CAIR was looking at a possible judgment approaching one million dollars just for attorney’s fees.

It is thus no surprise that at a mediation conducted in the U.S. District Court in D.C. by U.S. Magistrate Judge G. Michael Harvey in late May, CAIR agreed to a settlement. As is often the case, the terms and conditions of the settlement agreement are confidential, but the plaintiffs’ lead lawyer, David Yerushalmi, remarked:

“Our clients are extremely happy with the settlement and, in fact, they are so happy, they have authorized me to declare publicly that they have no problem disclosing all of the terms and conditions of the settlement agreement if CAIR agrees. It is unlikely CAIR would agree, of course, because it is unlikely CAIR wants the public to learn the terms of the settlement.”

[….]

The lawsuit began after CAIR hired for its Virginia offices a fake lawyer, Morris Days, who defrauded dozens if not hundreds of CAIR clients. Once the fraud began to unravel, CAIR engaged in a massive cover-up, closing down the Virginia offices, firing the lawyer, and claiming to the CAIR victims that Days was not actually a CAIR lawyer. As alleged, CAIR knew of this fraud and purposefully conspired with Days to keep the CAIR clients from discovering that their legal matters were being mishandled or not handled at all.

CAIR’s 2019 Funding “Islamophobia” Report is Worth a Look

Screenshot (973)Released this week, the Council on American Islamic Relations report contends that over a thousand foundations (listed in the appendix) fund a vast array of organizations who hate Muslims (they say).

Of course my first thought was, well who funded this report endorsed by the disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center and who funds CAIR?

And, my second thought was that if there is so much money sloshing around in the “Islamophobia Network,” why haven’t I seen any of it?

I know a lot of citizen volunteers/writers working on educating America about political Islam who work for zip, zero, nada!

Hey, rich foundations! I am over here! (Donation button in right hand side bar!)

Thanks to a reader for sending me the news.

On the Southern Poverty Law Center, Too Late for Tina, Send in the IRS

“The question isn’t what went wrong at the SPLC; it is why it took so long for the rest of the country to learn what local reporters already knew.”

(Jim Tharpe, former managing editor of the Montgomery Advertiser)

SPLC exposedThe problems at the Southern Poverty Law Center could be bigger than discomfort by staff about racism and sexism in the internal office culture says the former managing editor of the Montgomery Advertiser who penned an op-ed in the Washington Post last week entitled,

Something strange is going on at this civil rights institution. It must be investigated.

Editor:  It is important that all of you, all fair-minded people! especially those who have been targets of the SPLC’s infamous hate lists, keep all of the unfolding news about the SPLC ‘s frauds in the public eye.  Tina is Tina Tchen Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff brought in by the board to help clean up the mess. She will be working to downplay information like this!

Soros Wanted to Document Hate Crimes in Wake of Trump’s Election

So he funded the earliest version of a “hate crime” database, but according to Richard Tofel, the president of ProPublica, a founding partner and a recipient of the largess of  Soros foundation grants, the database is not an effort to collect statistical data, but instead they are simply “soliciting people’s stories.”

George Soros is out to get President Trump!

Those “stories” are then made available to leading media outlets where reporters can then supposedly sift through the “stories” and weed out the hoaxes from the legitimate cases.

But, Soros and media pals sure missed the boat on the Jussie Smollett hoax!

How many more of the “stories” collected by the project known as “Documenting Hate” are hoaxes as well?

Tina Tchen Takes Center Stage again, this Time in the Jussie Smollet Hoax on America Case

I have to admit I had never heard of Tina Tchen until this past week when we learned she had been brought in to try to clean up (cover up?) the misdeeds at the largest hate group in the country—the Southern Poverty Law Center.  (See my story here)

“Fixer” Tina Tchen, a member in good standing of the Obamas’ Chicago inner circle!

So my ears perked up when I heard her name again, this time because of her involvement in helping to get charges dropped against the very privileged Jussie Smollett.

Frankly, it is special deals for special people that conservative voters won’t forget in 2020.

First thing this morning I hit the computer to see if anyone was pointing out Tina Tchen’s rising star among the Democrat elite and sure enough the intrepid Michelle Malkin posted a great piece overnight!

SPLC President Richard Cohen Resigns! Good Riddance!

….allegations of discrimination in “mission-driven” organizations, which suffer from the same problems they purport to fight, can be especially painful. [ya think!]

(Tina Tchen)

However, Cohen’s departure is not the end of the hateful Southern Poverty Law Center as the board has hired former Michelle Obama chief of staff, Tina Tchen, to investigate so that the board can try to clean up the mess.

Tchen with FLOTUS and POTUS: “I am honored to be asked by SPLC to do this work,” Tchen said. “I have admired it from afar for many years. It’s an important civil justice institution in our country.”

 

Most days I get up eager to hit the keyboard with the latest frauds, crooks and cons stories, but today I am especially excited.

When my feet hit the floor (and with coffee in hand), I couldn’t wait to share the news about the internal chaos at the SPLC!

The first shoe to drop, a little over a week ago, was when the SPLC announced it had fired its founder Morris Dees who was the brains behind the money-making scams the organization has run for decades, I said then that Cohen should go since he was in charge of the organization on a day-to-day basis.

The next shoe to drop was the New Yorker story by Bob Moser a former staffer who said, we (employees who knew about the hypocrisy involving the SPLC’s internal and on-going issues with racial tensions and sexual harassment) were part of the “con.”

And, here comes the third shoe!

Shame on Bob Moser and all the Others who Kept the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Secrets (until now)

Who is Bob Moser you ask?

He is a writer at The New Yorker who tells us over a decade later what he learned about the frauds at the Southern Poverty Law Center when he worked there in the early 2000’s.

Moser’s twitter photo https://twitter.com/bobmoserwrites

Moser told his story yesterday about how much of the staff (mostly former staff now!) was well aware of the hypocrisy of the organization that was driven more by a desire to make its leaders rich than doing good for the down and out.

I don’t know why he even wrote this article (clearing his conscience maybe), but I am glad he did.

What most outraged me was the fact that all of these employees he references knew what was going on, yet many stayed and worked there for a time with apparent total disregard for what their ‘good works’ could do to regular Americans who have opinions—people like me!

Frankly, the SPLC’s money-generating “hate-group list” puts my safety in jeopardy!
