Spineless John Mccain Denounces Michelle Bachmann over Muslim Brotherhood
breitbart.com ^ | 06/18/2011 | WILLIAM BIGELOW

Posted on 07/20/2012 5:46:09 AM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

John McCain has now denounced Michelle Bachmann for requesting that the State, Homeland Security, Defense and Justice Departments, investigate potential “policies and activities that appear to be the result of influence operations conducted by individuals and organizations associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.”

...

Bachmann had sent a 16-page letter to Keith Ellison, the only Muslim congressman, outlining her concerns:

“The concerns about the foreign influence of immediate family members is such a concern to the U.S. Government that it includes these factors as potentially disqualifying conditions for obtaining a security clearance, which undoubtedly Ms. Abedin has had to obtain to function in her position. For us to raise issues about a highly-based U.S. Government official with known immediate family connections to foreign extremist organizations is not a question of singling out Ms. Abedin. In fact, these questions are raised by the U.S. Government of anyone seeking a security clearance.”

This is absolutely correct. Abedin’s father, Syed Z. Abedin, founded the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs, an organization supported by the Muslim World League, a Brotherhood organization. Her mother, Saleha Mahmoud Abedin, is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood.

No matter. McCain was in fine fettle.

Not only that Stockpirate, but Sarah said that she and John McCain “share the same vision for America”.

Like that commercial says, “people judge you on the words you use”.

That NVA surface-to-air missile guy back in '67 should have had better aim. Would have saved America all sorts of untold grief from that RINO-POS.

It’s exactly the same way that The One could not honestly pass the basic background check required for the newest Second Lieutenant but yet he is not blocked from being the CINC. With our State Department being filled with blatant Muslim advocates and anti-Israel activists, it’s a wonder that Israel even shows up on maps today.

Say what you want about John McCain’s politics - and I do not agree with his views a lot of the time. BUT - he put it on the line for this country and we should always remember that and give him credit for that. He was there, he fought the war and he spent a lot of time in a hideous situation at the Hanoi Hilton.

McCain is such a fool. Abedin’s parents are both involved with Muslim Brotherhood organizations in leadership roles no less. There is a real possiblility that information passes between mother & daughter of a sensitive nature.

There is always the possibility that mommy or daddy will ‘reach out’ to Huma in a time of international crisis to try to get a read on the bottomline US policy. It’s called a ‘mole’ fer Pete’s sake! Except that with the Democrats the potential traitors are in plain sight.

Center for Security Policy President Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. said, “Congresswoman Bachmann and her colleagues have rendered a tremendous public service by raising an alarm about the dangers posed by the Muslim Brotherhood’s ‘civilization jihad.’ Far from being chastised for doing so, by Sen. McCain or others, they should be applauded and aided in their efforts to have the extent of Brotherhood influence operations properly investigated by Inspectors General and/or congressional committees. We very much hope that a conversation with Dr. Abedin will help inform such deliberations.”

A devout Muslim Brotherhood member just killed around 14 people in Colorado, including a one year old infant at point blank range.

Just for the record, Ed Rollins too. Along with Grover Norquist, which was already known.

So that's at least three and presumably more Republicans who have more or less confessed their allegiance to the Muslims.

I think Michele tells it like it is... too bad she messed up with a social faux pas at the Iowa State Fair.

As someone was saying on another thread a couple of days ago, the only way this situation with a non-American muslim in the white house and muslim infiltration of our government is going to get straightened out is going to involve everyone in congress, pretty much everyone in the executive branch, damn near everyone in the media and tell me again, who was that who swore the muslim in?

McCain, Lindsey Graham, Boehner and a varied assortment of RINO wannabees came to the defense of Humar. Michelle voiced legitimate concerns and backed it up with facts. Maybe a solid win by pubbies in Nov. with more T-partiers, would insure removing Boehner as speaker and replacing him with a true conservative leader.

“Super Hawk” McCain has never seen an international crises that didn’t need US military intervention. On domestic disputes with Democrats though, he is Senator Neville Chamberlin.

‘A devout Muslim Brotherhood member just killed around 14 people in Colorado, including a one year old infant at point blank ran”

Is it been established that the shooter is a Muslim Brotherhood? The FBI is denying that this was an act of terrorism, not that we can put much stock in what Bam’s FBI says.
On another note, what kind of parent brings a one year old infant to a Batman movie at 12:30AM. And the movie was packed with teenagers, don’t these kids go to school or work? Our culture is really in a tail spin.

Some speculation if you have a birds eye view of the combination of occurring events such as the first day of Ramadan, Iranian tensions, Obama wanting a diversion, Hillary and her Egypt escapade.

On other threads some other info, and the MSM is getting silly slappy into fever mode to make this out as a right wing extremist.

Unfortunately if you look around FR you’ll find few conservatives willing to do what really needs to be done which is pointing out GOP complicity and involvement.

The need to do the right thing is crushed under the weight of protecting the party.

I’ll never forget the McCain rally I went to in ‘08. McCain actually spent a fair part of his speech telling us how we need to ‘work with’ and ‘reach out’ to Obama and the democrats.

It’s not very often that you see a Presidential candidate booed at his own rally. What a tool.

McCain is a dumb-@ss. He’s potentially ceding to the enemy (Iran) important intelligence that could lead Iran into doing something rash — like closing the Strait. We all know how the Democrats project weakness to begin with. If Huma were to pass along the details of the internal debate it would simply re-inforce Iran in that strategic conclusion.

Then a shooting-war is the only way to retrieve the situation. And as you point-out, Sen. McCain has never seen a conflict he didn’t think could be solved with military might. I’d throw Lindsay Graham into that mix, since he acts like the Junior Senator from Arizona most of the time.

I denounce John (insane) McCain, urge him to shut up and pray that he goes home. It is beyond belief that he was the GOP candidate for President at one point.

I admire his military service but he was obviously bent duing his captivity.

After the way he treated the families of Vietnam POW/MIA’s when he chaired the hearings back in the 90’s, you will not think he is a hero. He pretty much gave cover for the No Vietnamese and the Viet Cong.

There is a reason why Charlie let Hanoi John go home

Unfortunately, this is true to an extent. There is a little too much “party protecting” and not “Conservative protecting”.....and its everywhere in the conservative sphere

I swear, there are too many who do not know the difference between a Conservative and a Republican

Michelle Bachmann was 100% correct in calling out Hillary and her Muzzy Bro’hood tied assistant. It was treasonous for those in her own party to attack her. We need some Real Conservatives to step out and call out those RINOs supporting MB
