Questions about Huma Abedin (McCain Smacked down)
National Review ^ | Andrew McCarthy

Posted on 07/21/2012 1:10:38 PM PDT by Windy City Conservative

In fact, so apprehensive was he over the Brotherhood and its sharia agenda that McCain was quick to brand Mohamed ElBaradei, the Nobel laureate, as a Brotherhood tool. Many of us watching developments at the time noted the apparent collusion between ElBaradei and the Brothers. McCain went farther: “Oh yeah, I think it’s very clear that the scenario is very likely he could be their front man.”

It did not matter that ElBaradei was a renowned international figure and an important leftist ally of President Obama’s. So pernicious was the threat posed by the Brotherhood that, in McCain’s considered opinion, you just had to assume the worst.

...The senator is never at a loss for bloviation. His professed anxiety, only a year ago, over the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as his blithe willingness to assume that ElBaradei must be an Islamist coconspirator, are worth remembering today. For the sage has suddenly decided that the Brothers — unapologetic Islamic supremacists who say outright that they are on a “grand jihad” to destroy America and the West — are a pretty swell lot, after all. Instead, McCain reserves his signature “shoot first, think later” ire for the target he has always preferred: conservatives.

The Arizonan took to the Senate floor this week to lambaste five conservative members of the House who, unlike McCain, are actually serious about addressing threats the Brotherhood poses to American interests. McCain’s bipartisan “Islamic democracy” promoters seem content to keep burning through taxpayer trillions until the Brotherhood is finally running every government in the Middle East. To the contrary, the House conservatives — Michele Bachmann (Minn.), Louie Gohmert (Texas), Trent Franks (Ariz.), Tom Rooney (Fla.), and Lynn Westmorland (Ga.) — have concluded that the Brotherhood needs to be regarded as the serious anti-American business that it is.

I see that ElBaradei is no longer an international crisis group trustee. I wonder what happened there?

I know who the leftist traitor “Americans” are but I don’t know about the islamists.

McCain has been such a cancer. Every initiative Dubya tried there was McCain reaching across the aisle to block him.

He think he’s a war “hero” because he was shot down and imprisoned at Hanoi Hilton, where it is said because his dad and granddad were Admirals he was given special treatment (his injuries occured when he crash landed). It is also said he ratted out his fellow POWs because of his favored status. It is no secret he was a horrible pilot, bottom of his class, lost several planes including setting off missiles on a carrier deck. But he was a perfumed prince.

His mask slipped when he bitched out Maria Schriver, then a network news anchor, as she tried to talk to him in an airport. Then when his choice for VP came under assault, even within his campaign, he did not defend her or her family.

I’ve known other cancer sufferers who deserved to survive more.

There is so much about Obama's background and connections we don't know. Muslim brother has been invited into this administration.

McCain has helped advance ME destabilizing agenda.

When you are so terrified of being politically incorrect the evil ones can make you do just about anything...

...both the SS and KGB successfully accomplished their political slaughters under this ideological protective umbrella...

...with Obama WE are getting there if he wins reelect we ARE there!

See you in the camps FRiend/s?

There should also be scrutiny on the amount of US money being pledge and given to Muslim countries and groups. US Aid was helping restore Mosques. The state department needs some sunlight

You will either live the life of a slave on your knees or die fighting on your feet as a free person. That, my FRiend, is the two choices you will have.

There is always the Italian way as described in Joseph Heller's “Catch 22” when an American airmen stationed in Italy during WWII questioned the wishy-washy loyalties of the natives...

Army Air Corp airman: “Isn't it better to die on your feet than live on your knees?”

“No, it is better to live on your feet than die on your knees.” was the sardonically sophist yet strongly held response.

Heller was there in WWII Italy and knew well the budding socialist FDR propaganda paralogisms that,inserted along with Marshal Plan cash, would eventually sweep the entire European continent and, as all Leftist fails do, eventually bring about a comeuppance that will demand either personal responsibility or collective tyranny.

This is the clown put forth by the GOP last election. Based upon the clown running this year under the GOP’s banner they haven’t learned from past mistakes.

It did not matter that ElBaradei was a renowned international figure and an important leftist ally of President Obama’s.

That doesn't mean he wasn't a defacto ally of the Brotherhood, probably hoping to step into power once the government fell. He helped to bring down Mubarak. Once that happened, though, the Brotherhood had no more use for him or most of the other leftist shills who were there for the festivities. They even arrested the Google exec who had helped to organize the whole thing.

This isn’t just about McCain, it is about Hillery and someone needs to do some investigating to uncover how much she is behind this administration supporting and kissing up to the brotherhood. This is like inviting the Nazis into the government and military during WWII.

I guess “Andrew McCarthy” gets paid by the amount of snark he can work into an article (also by the page, it seems).

Senator McCain could at least use the old axiom which is "Trust, but Verify". He appears to have charged in to appear the high minded and decent fellow in these matters.

I will not forget February 2008, when loyal American Bill Cunningham, warmed up the audience for Senator McCain. Bill pointedly used the name "Hussein" in referring to Senator Obama.

Out came John quivering with apparent concern. He was told by others the gist of what Bill Cunningham had said. This will not happen again, he said, then gave a eulogy for his opponent. As far as I know he did not go immediately to Cunningham and gain some insight on his words. In short, he threw Bill under the proverbial bus. With all respect, John McCain is not the best person to "cover your back".

I can't stand McCain. Having said that, it was McCain's aircraft that was hit by a malfunctioning rocket launched from another jet across the flight deck on the aircraft carrier.
