Talking Points Memo reports:
A think tank founded by a notorious anti-Muslim activist is planning to co-sponsor an upcoming rally against the Iran deal headlined by Republican presidential candidates Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Donald Trump.

Cruz and Trump announced Thursday that they were planning the joint event to voice their opposition to a landmark agreement to curb Iran's nuclear program. Tea Party Patriots, the Center for Security Policy and the far-right Zionist Organization of America were expected to sponsor the rally, which is scheduled for Sept. 9 on Capitol Hill, according to The Washington Post.

The Center for Security Policy is an anti-Muslim think tank founded by former Reagan administration official Frank Gaffney, who often speaks about the threat of creeping Sharia law and has accused Republican and Democratic officials alike of being Muslim Brotherhood plants in the U.S.
Yup, and in 2010, when President Obama's policies on missile defense and other issues weren't bellicose enough for his tastes, Gaffney declared at Breitbart that he'd discovered a persuasive theory about the relative lack of saber-rattling:
Now, thanks to an astute observation by Christopher Logan of the Logans Warning blog, we have another possible explanation for behavior that -- in the face of rapidly growing threats posed by North Korean, Iranian, Russian, Chinese and others’ ballistic missiles -- can only be described as treacherous and malfeasant: Team Obama’s anti-anti-missile initiatives are not simply acts of unilateral disarmament of the sort to be expected from an Alinsky acolyte. They seem to fit an increasingly obvious and worrying pattern of official U.S. submission to Islam and the theo-political-legal program the latter’s authorities call Shariah.

What could be code-breaking evidence of the latter explanation is to be found in the newly-disclosed redesign of the Missile Defense Agency logo.... As Logan helpfully shows, the new MDA shield appears ominously to reflect a morphing of the Islamic crescent and star with the Obama campaign logo.
Gaffney cites this post at the Logan's Warning blog. The following is the "evidence" laid out in that post:
Here is the old [Missile Defense Agency] logo.

Here is the Obama campaign logo.

Here is the Islamic crescent.

Here is the hybrid.

Any questions?
Yes, Gaffney found that persuasive. That's Trump's new pal. Can Pam Geller be far behind?

On the front of 'If You Can't Say Something Nice Don't Say Anything', I observe that Gaffney personally constitutes solid indication that limiting gun reform to firearms out of the hands of crazy people are farcical.

If this society is unable to secure itself from Frank Gaffney possessing firearms based on nothing more than his public actions and assertions constituting a prima facie case of his being a criminal sociopath, then it's fantasy to imagine it can protect citizens from being gunned down by people such as Dylann Roof and Vester Flanagan.
