Posted on 07/23/2012 11:06:56 AM PDT by bayouranger
There is one operative word in Andy McCarthy's illuminating examination of some of the facts obscured by the weird and racuous apotheosis of Huma Abedin currently enlivening the hysterical demonization of Rep. Michele Bachmann by the media and John McCain, a grotesque and shameful display triggered by a question -- one question -- Bachmann and four other House Republicans have raised about Abedin's close family connections to the rapacious Islamic supremacist group, the Muslim Brotherhood.
That word is "adults."
Having outlined these connections, which are not, the former federal prosecutor writes, "contrived or weightless," McCarthy notes it's not "a crime to have close relatives who are either members of, or associated with members of such an organization. Again, however," he patiently explains, "no one is accusing Huma Abedin of a crime."
The five House conservatives instead are asking questions that adults responsible for national security should feel obliged to ask: In light of Ms. Abedins family history, is she someone who ought to have a security clearance, particularly one that would give her access to top-secret information about the Brotherhood? Is she, furthermore, someone who may be sympathetic to aspects of the Brotherhoods agenda, such that Americans ought to be concerned that she is helping shape American foreign policy?
These are rational questions. The fact that such questions now require a painstaking defense is a measure of how berserk -- how subverted -- our reasoning powers have become. The fact that such questions are only now being asked by just five House members is a measure of how very few adults hold positions of authority in our government. (NB: It is this same subversion of reasoning powers that led me to write my new book, American Betrayal, which became a "prequel" of sorts to The Death of the Grown-Up.)
The bottom line here is that adults responsible for national security have an urgent obligation to ask these questions -- to bang the table and demand answers and oversight on what could well be a longstanding chink in our national security armor in the person always at the side of the Secretary of State -- Abedin -- who is also the daughter and sister of people variously aligned with an international movement dedicated to the destruction of Western civlization. There are rules about this, after all, in the State Department's own code (see the section of Foreign Influence). Rather than uncover the facts of the matter, rather than seek even minimal clarification from the two public servants in question -- Clinton and Abedin -- the media have instead dropped all pretense at fact-finding, all responsibility for reporting, and have instead formed an impermeable phalanx around the two women, protecting them from questions and shutting down efforts to get facts to their viewers and readers.
It is an extraordinary operation to behold: the extinguishment of the first flickers of inquiry into whether, once again, there is an ideological enemy within -- agents or dupes of a foreign movement seeking to subvert US policy from inside the halls of government. We know for a fact from extensive archival confirmation that this happened before with the Soviet-directed infiltration of literally hundreds of agents and thousands more fellow-travelers and useful fools working from within to promote Moscow's war on Washington. It is no accident that the witnesses and investigators who tried to expose what they knew sixty years ago suffered the same cauterizing reception from the Establishment that Bachmann is experiencing today. The Establishment, then and now, fears the exposure of facts -- sunshine -- will reveal what is at best its members' gross incompetence. This might take them from the seat of power, which they love more than anything.
And so the muck flies -- at Michele Bachmann. She has the audacity, in their eyes, of asking for information that the American people have every right to know. Her character-assassins in the media, in her own party, committ the very crime they falsely accuse her of: slandering without facts. House Speaker John Boehner actually admitted he hadn't read Bachmann's query letter but saw fit to denounce Bachmann anyway for "throwing around" accusations that were "pretty damgerous." John McCain, the man who last year called AQ-linked Libyan forces his "heroes," erroneously stated on the Senate floor that Bachmann's concerns -- "sinister accusations," he luridly called them -- rest solely on a few unspecified and unsubstantiated associations of members of Humas family. (Again, as Andy McCarthy lays out here, "the ties of Ms. Abedins father, mother, and brother to the Muslim Brotherhood are both specific and substantiated.") Bachmann's former campaign manger, Ed Rollins, penned a poisonous screed for Fox News that is notable mainly for its historical illiteracy:
Having worked for Congressman Bachmans campaign for president, I am fully aware that she sometimes has difficulty with her facts, but this is downright vicious and reaches the late Senator Joe McCarthy level. (Joe McCarthy falsely made claims that there were large numbers of Communists and Soviet spies inside the State Department in the early 1950s. On December 2, 1954, the Senate voted to "condemn" McCarthy on two counts.)
Contrary to Rollins and the echo chamber that has ignorantly taken up "McCarthyism" as a sledgehammer, Joe McCarthy was correct, as the historical record, meticulously and copiously salvaged and reconstructed by M. Stanton Evans in Blacklisted by History, proves.
But what is proof in 21st-century America? The dark theme energing here is that facts, history, evidence are of no concern to leaders in our public square today. This is an existential problem, a crisis, one that is taking our country down. It will require a showing from many more "adults" than five House Republicans to put things to rights. There is no time to waste.
The first order of business is to support Reps. Bachmann, Franks. Gohmert, Rooney and Westmoreland in their efforts to investigate whether the Muslim Brotherhood, through its identified domestic front groups, has gained influence over US policy.
Save Our Adults.
The fear that Chapman would compromise a senior US official in a honey trap (where the victim is compromised through sexual relations) was a key reason for the arrest and deportation of the Russian spy ring of 10 people, of which she was a part, in 2010, the Independent writes.
We were becoming very concerned, Figliuzzi told the paper. They were getting close enough to a sitting US cabinet member that we thought we could no longer allow this to continue. Figliuzzi refused to say who was being targeted by the Russians."
I hope FBI Agent Figliuzzi still has that case in the "Open" status...
I don’t recognize Hillary in that graphic.
Let’s take a majopr part of this story and instead of Huma Abedin’s name,replace it with Barrack Obama’s name.
Should Barrack Obama have a security clearance.
Father —————————————A Muslim
Fathers Family—————————— Muslim
Maternal Grandfather-——————Atheist Communist
Religion-———————————For 17 years Jeremiah Wright
Associations-—————————Bill Ayres —Terrorist
I could go on,but why bother, those who despise Obama know the facts, and those who have their heads up his rectum refuse to see the forest in front of their eyes.
Huma Abedin, Hillary’s Body Girl, is small potato’s compared to the Muslim in the White House.The same guy who started the Muslim Spring to put the Muslim Brotherhood in ever Country in the Middle East.How many is Obama guilty of killing by starting this mess?
Neither do I but it is funny.
I suggest that it would get news attention non-stop until the Conservative would be driven out of office with no hope of redress.
He&^-Dan Quale got worse, more immediate and relentless criticism for bad spelling!
Let’s run with it!
Where should we start? I feel that by getting Huma it will lay the ground work for the rest of the TRAITORS in the FedGov.
That is what raised my antennae. No one seemed to want to address the facts either pro or con, they just went on the attack against Bachmann for asking the question.
And by focusing on Huma, who is probably the most sympathetic of the people mentioned by name, they avoid talking about the bigger picture. There are people with Islamist connections being recruited into the military, FBI, State, and on down the line. As they circle the wagons around Huma, they studiously avoid addressing her connections which are very real, and they definitely avoid the larger problem which is the recruitment of Islamists into government at all levels.
The big question is - who are Boehner and McCain trying so hard to keep from offending? I doubt it’s the Muslim Brotherhood.
This does remind me of the maxim; when you pitch a shoe over the fence, the dog that yelps is the dog you hit.
An attack on the Brotherhood elicits a rather hysterical response from McCain and Boehner, neither of whom read Bachmann’s remarks and neither of whom bothered to respond to the factual issues either pro or con.
I always assume that a fair portion of our leadership have their retirement portfolios secure in Saudi banks. Efforts to break down banking secrecy laws never include Saudi banks.
The response to Michele Bachmann's question reminds me of how Robert Blake responded to Piers Morgan's question of "Did you kill your wife?" The Commies doth protest too loudly.
The Muslim Brotherhood in America
There are reports that representatives from the Brotherhood came to America before 1940. It is known that by 1960, Muslim Brothers established Usras (families) around the U.S. primarily settling in Indiana, Michigan, and Illinois. In 1962, Said Ramadan, the assistant to Hassan al Banna who married al Bannas daughter, formed the Muslim World League in Saudi Arabia the first international Brotherhood front organization. Shortly thereafter, the Muslim Brothers in the United States created the Muslim Students Association (MSA), also known as the Muslim Students Union. Out of the MSA came nearly every Muslim organization in America today.
As the MSAs grew on campuses across America, they presented Islam as an acceptable alternative to other religions, never mentioning its revolutionary aspects. In the 1970s, a number of trade organizations were formed by the Brotherhood to insinuate the MB into American culture. These included the Association of Muslim Social Scientists (AMSS), the Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers (AMSE), the Islamic Medical Association (IMA), the Muslim Communities Association (MCA), and others.
Also formed in the 1970s were other student groups to include the Muslim Arab Youth Assembly (MAYA). Additionally, in 1973, the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), funded by Saudi Arabia, became the financial center of the Muslim Brotherhood activities in the United States. NAIT holds the titles/deeds to the majority of mosques and Islamic schools in America today.
Over time, as the students graduated, the Brotherhood realized a need for continued connection with their people in order to grow the Movement across the United States and North America. In 1980, most of these organizations were brought under the authority of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), still one of the largest Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the United States.
The creation of ISNA ushered in an era of massive growth of the Movement in North America. Through the 1980s and 1990s, the Brotherhood created hundreds of new organizations and built hundreds of mosques and Islamic schools across North America, and did so primarily with funding from Saudi Arabia. In 1989, the Brotherhood produced a key document (book) entitled Methodology of Dawah by Muslim Brother Shamim Siddiqi, which detailed HOW Muslim Brothers are to subvert American society with specific guidance and means to achieve their goals.
By the mid 1990s, the Muslim Brotherhood had insinuated themselves into the U.S. government structure, the academic world, the religious community, the media, and into local communities throughout America. The Brotherhood targeted American society at all levels, to include: the Departments of Education and school boards in order to control and soften the history of Islam and how it is taught to American students; federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies in order to soften investigative efforts, keep them from being educated on the nature of the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic Law, and to ensure the MB is the only entity from which the U.S. government seeks advice on Islamic matters; churches and synagogues through interfaith dialogue; key leaders in communities to encourage them to accept Islam as a part of American culture; the financial community by promoting the implementation of Shariah Compliant Finance into the U.S. banking system; and a multitude of others.
During this time, the Brotherhood was able to get one of its leaders, Abdurahman Alamoudi, into the most senior levels of the U.S. government. Alamoudi, from Eritrea, was naturalized in 1979, became a Good Will Ambassador for the State Department, worked with the U.S. Department of Education, and was frequently welcomed on Capitol Hill and the White House. He personally met with Presidents Clinton and Bush on numerous occasions.
Alamoudi was the Founder/President of a large number of Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda front groups as noted below. In 2003, Alamoudi was arrested at Heathrow Airport (UK) on his way back from Libya with $340,000 cash given to him by Libyan President Muammar Qaddafi for the jihad, he was involved in a plot to kill Saudi Crown Prince (now King) Abdullah of Saudi Arabia with two UK-based Al Qaeda operatives, and was convicted and sentenced to 23-years in federal prison.
Abdurahman Alamoudi founded and created the Muslim Chaplain Program for the Department of Defense, the Islamic Institute (with Republican Strategist Grover Norquist), and was the founder of the American Muslim Armed Forces Veterans Affair Council (AMAFVAC). After Alamoudis demise, several Muslim Brotherhood front organizations gained prominence in the U.S. to include the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR, a Hamas entity), ISNA, the Muslim American Society (MAS), the US-Muslim Engagement Project, the Cordoba Initiative, Muslims for America, the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID), the American-Muslim Task Force (AMTF), and a host of others.
During a November 2001 raid in Switzerland at the residence of Youssef Nada, a senior Muslim Brother, a 14-page document was found. Now known as The Project the document details how the Muslim Brotherhood will subvert and take over Western nations. In 2004 during a raid in Annandale, VA of the residence of a known Hamas operative and senior Muslim Brother in North America, the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America were discovered.
The documents reveal, in great detail, the strategic and operational plans of the Brotherhood in America and how they plan to destroy our civilization from within. In short, the Brotherhood intends on subverting our culture at all levels, creating a situation in which we work against ourselves. Here is an excerpt from the Muslim Brotherhoods strategic plan for North America, dated May 1991:
Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America:
By Their Hands. The MB intends on using our leadership to do their bidding. Once the leadership in key sectors of society is co-opted by the Brothers and their point of view, these leaders will defend the MBs position against all opposition - even when individuals under the leaders purview provide information contrary to that position. Over time, the Muslim Brotherhood has been able to subvert the decision-making process of our National Security apparatus in just this way.
Through this civilization-jihadist process the Muslim Brotherhood is undermining our financial system, softening our reaction to violent acts by jihadis, and rendering our security apparatus ineffective. The MB strategic documents also reveals that nearly every major Muslim organization in America today is, as a matter of fact, affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood Movement. Currently, in the U.S. government, there exists no coherent training and education program for our National Security sector which informs them of the existence of the Muslim Brotherhood and the threat they pose. This should not be surprising since the Muslim advisors consulting U.S. leadership on how to fight the Global War on Terror are all Muslim Brothers
