Scores of U.S. state lawmakers took int’l trips subsidized by Islamic cleric’s movement
December 4, 2017 / creeping   


Just why exactly would 151 state legislators from places like Idaho and Texas accept subsidized junkets from a Turkish opposition group [“Gülen Movement”]  now blamed by that country’s government for an attempted coup last summer?

It’s puzzling that state legislators who rarely get involved in foreign policy matters have been courted with international trips.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
