Obama Administration Says It Talked With Muslim Brotherhood to Promote Small Business

(CNSNews.com) - The Obama administration says that it has talked with members of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood in order to promote small business.

The Muslim Brotherhood, which was banned in Egypt during the regime of former President Hosni Mubarak, leads the Freedom and Justice Party which, according to the Congressional Research Service, won 235 of the 498 seats (47 percent) in Egypt’s new People’s Assembly, which convened in January. The fundamentalist Islamist Alliance won another 125 seats (or 25 percent of the assembly).

In an online briefing for foreign reporters last week, Undersecretary of State Robert Hormats said that the State Department is trying to promote collaboration between small and medium-sized businesses in the United States and businesses overseas.

In this context, he said he had talked to members of the Muslim Brotherhood about promoting smaller enterprises. He said he would be having similar discussions this week with leaders from Middle Eastern and North African countries.

I guess this Democratic administration is not entirely against small business - as long as it helps the muslim brotherhood.

“Promote small business” is Alinsky-speak for “Shake-down small business.”

Talked with them about small businesses? Words which come to mind regarding this explanation: camouflage, misdirection, cover-up, bald face lie, playing the public for fools, trickery, arrogant deception, an obamanism.

Laz my old friend one cannot listen to what one does not hear. This is from CNS. Now they’re fine folks, but really, how many readers do they have? A couple thousand maybe?

Even if Rush or Levin pick this up that is nothing compared to what NBCCBSCNNPMSNBC aren’t telling people. If we had a real media in this country Obama’s approval rating would be in negative territory and the Secret Service would be installing a mote around the White House.

So the plain, simple, and ugly truth is that we are WATF, buddy. There’s nothing to do but dig in and wait for what promises to be one hell of a storm to hit. God willing things will be better on the other side.

But there’s going to be some real nasty s*** raining down between now and then.

THE AVERAGE AMERICAN HASN’T A CLUE AS TO THE BILLIONS OF AMERICAN TAX PAYER DOLLARS THAT OBAMA HAS THROWN DOWN MUSLIM SH*T HOLES WHILE THREATENING TO WITHHOLD SENIOR’S SS AND GUTTING THE MILITARY:

Obamas 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and passed by the full committee.
It gives billions http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2009/05/1...
of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies.
Read the summary from David Obeys office that was quietly released last week with nary a word from any media.

$3.6 billion, matching the request, to expand and improve capabilities of the Afghan security forces

$400 million, as requested, to build the counterinsurgency capabilities of the Pakistani security forces

Afghanistan:$1.52 billion,$86 million above the request

West Bank and Gaza:$665 million in bilateral economic, humanitarian, and security assistance for the West Bank and Gaza

Jordan:$250 million,$250 million above the request, including $100 million for economic and $150 million for security assistance

Egypt:$360 million,$310 million above the request, including $50 million for economic assistance,$50 million for border security, and $260 million for security assistance

Pakistan:$1.9 billion,$591 million above the request

Iraq:$968 million,$336 million above the request

Oversight:$20 million,$13 million above the request, to expand oversight capacity of the State Department, USAID, and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan to review programs in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq
Lebanon:$74 million

International Food Assistance:$500 million,$200 million above the request, for PL 480 international food assistance to alleviate suffering during the global economic crisis

Refugee Assistance:$343 million,$50 million above the request, including humanitarian assistance for Gaza. Funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency programs in the West Bank and Gaza is limited to $119 million (Note: Gaza = Hamas)

Disaster Assistance:$200 million to avert famines and provide life-saving assistance during natural disasters and for internally displaced people around the world, including Somalia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, the Middle East and South Asia

Peacekeeping:$837 million for United Nations
peacekeeping operations, including an expanded mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a new mission in Chad and the Central African Republic

Department of Justice:$17 million, matching the request, for counter-terrorism activities and to provide training and assistance for the Iraqi criminal justice system
Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world
http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/... #

ACCORDING TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WILL GIVE AWAY NEARLY $6 MILLION OF AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS TO RESTORE 63 HISTORIC AND CULTURAL SITES, INCLUDING ISLAMIC MOSQUES AND MINARETS, IN 55 NATIONS. See the State Department document here.
http://exchanges.state.gov/media/pdfs/office-...

And THAT’S just the tip of the iceberg.
THIS will blow your mind!!

http://gbk.eads.usaidallnet.gov/
They should have 2010 up, but they don’t. That’s where you’ll find Obama’s largesse towards Muslim countries really go off the charts.

But... but... he’s pro-union (says the American union member).

Or... he’s pro-choice (says the single female voter and her “boyfriend”).

Or... Republicans will take away my right to do drugs (says the young voter).

It’s so peaceful and quite during a media blackout.

You’ve put more real news in your one single post than I saw on TV in all of 2011.

" Obama Administration Says It Talked With Muslim Brotherhood to Promote Small Business"

Obama doesn't know economics. If it were an economic summit he would have sent his economic advisors, along with maybe the Sec. of State. And the Muslim Brotherhood doesn't exactly exist for business or economic purposes either. So it's crystal clear that Obama's statement was a bald faced LIE. Obama is a Muslim sympathizer, and if that's not clear to most Americans by now, (for one thing, he practically shut down NASA and had their Chief of Operations publicly proclaim the great benefits Islam has provided to science), then we may as well pack it in.

Then there was the bowing to the King in Saudi; something no other President ever did before, and I believe that Obama's infamous bow was a clear sign that he wants Islam to understand he is one of them, (in a certain way).

Then there is that photo I saw on Free Republic with Obama talking on the phone to Netanyahu. The photo had Obama's big feet at the front of the picture,(probably by Obama's design), and taken by a WH photographer. Obama's feet were on his desk as he talked. And guess what? Showing the bottoms of your feet to another is the Islamic equivalent to sitting down with somebody and giving them the finger as you spoke with him. It is considered the worst social insult in all of Islam. And there was Obama, giving the souls of his feet to Netanyahu, ENLARGED, because they were closest to the camera.

And Obama himself, when speaking about Christianity and Islam on a TV interview said..."MY Islamic faith....". He was then quickly interreupted by Stephanopolis who injected: "You mean your Christian faith". Obama never replied: "yes, my apoligies, I meant to say my Christian faith". He merely nodded at Stephanopolis and said: "yes". The Freudian question this presents is this: is it possible that something so basic, fundamental, and ingrained into a man as his faith, his belief system for all his life, to come out and state ..."my Muslim faith"..., unless he is a Muslim? If a man were a Catholic, a Protestant, a Jew, a Hindu, a Buddhist, for the 40 + years of his life, how could he possibly state that his faith is MUSLIM, unless it actually is? No middle aged man forgets, even momentarily, what his faith is. It just doesn't happen.

But hey, I'm just a paranoid screwball. Just because Obama's father and step father, and all of his Kenyan clan are Muslims, why would anyone but a "conspiracy theorist" nut ball like me think that Obama is a closet Muslim? Why take any notice of 27,000 tons of circumstancial evidence?

I can imagine their advice for how to stimulate small business.

1) Raise taxes as high as you can on small business.
2) Require huge amounts of paperwork and heavily regulate small business. Make them hire incompetent employees.
3) Give huge amounts of money to rich people in the hopes that they will loan it to small businesses. When they keep it all for themselves, don’t demand it back.
4) Try to raise fuel, food, raw materials and other prices as much as you can. If small business has to charge very high prices for their goods, it is good for them, as they make more money to pay their higher taxes.
5) (They’ve already taken this advice) Petroleum fuel is bad, and selling natural gas to Jews is worse. Stop doing it.

This is not correct. owebama does get that money back in the form of campaign contributions. he’s a chicago thug and that’s what chicago thugs do.
