In defense of Michele Bachmann, Muslim Brotherhood probes
Politico ^ | 7/30/2012 | Newt Gingrich

Posted on 07/30/2012 10:31:03 AM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

The recent assault on the National Security Five is only the most recent example of the fear our elites have about discussing and understanding radical Islamists.

When an orchestrated assault is launched on the right to ask questions in an effort to stop members of Congress from even inquiring about a topic — you know the fix is in.

The intensity of the attack on Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) as well as Republican Reps. Trent Franks of Arizona, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Tom Rooney of Florida and Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia is a reminder of how desperate our elites are to avoid this discussion. Yet consider this rush to silence questions in light of our history of unpleasant surprises during the Cold War.

Given all the painful things we learn about people every day and the surprises that shock even the experts (the head of the FBI anti-spy effort was a Russian spy, for example), you have to wonder why people would aggressively assert we shouldn’t ask about national security concerns.

Remember the shock in 2001 when we learned that FBI agent Robert Hanssen had been spying for 22 years — first for the Soviet Union and then the Russian Federation. This disaster came just seven years after the 1994 arrest of Aldrich Ames, a CIA counterintelligence officer who was a Soviet spy for eight years.

Exactly right, Michelle is one of the few jewels of the GOP.

(excerpt)

“The level of self-deception necessary to misunderstand the Muslim Brotherhood verges on a psychosis.

The organization’s motto is “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Quran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

Our elites discount all these words — and refuse to take them seriously.”

If any Congressman refuses to even investigate a political arm of a religious movement (Islam), and the incestuous relationship between that political arm that the current administration , they are guilty of knowingly dereliction of
duty to protect the Consititution. They should be removed.

If it looks like it..
Smells like it..
and draws flies ..
It’s what it is ..!!

Thanks to political correctness, those who would like to see the end of the American republic can be much more open about what they are working for, even going as far as holding very powerful positions in our government. Like, for example, the presidency.

RE :”Exactly right, Michelle is one of the few jewels of the GOP.

She sends Dems into a tizzy and smokes out the cowardly establishment RINOs.

This reminds me of fall 2008 when on Hardball she said the media should investigate congress (isn't that their job?) and Matthews and Powell and Pelosi went into a tizzy over it. They said it was McCarthey again. They didnt say that when the media investigated Nixon, or even Libby.

Is this about money? Are these folks on the payroll of wealthy Arabs? Are they being paid to look the other way?

Seeing her meely-mouthed “conservative” opponent and this hubbub, sparked my first donation to her this campaign period.

She’ll win again... The people won’t be fooled for at least another 8 years.

Me too! How long do you think it will be before Romney comes out with anything on this theme?

Safe bet: There won’t be anything from Romney himself on it while he is still on his foreign trip.

John Bolton has spoken out on Bachmann’s side. He is a top advisor to Romney, if that means anything.

We will see.

The local ABC News affiliate (KSTP channel 5) went around to her district and did man-on-the-street interviews to get their reaction to her suggestion that congress should conduct this investigation and they all supported her. Men and women, young and old, all said they agreed with her. I was simultaneously shocked and gratified that the press would play the piece since we all know it didn’t turn out the way they hoped it would.

I lost respect for MB while she ran for President, particularly things she said or allowed others(unchallenged by her) to say about Gov Palin

I also believe she stretched the truth about her 19 or so adopted foster children. Charity is supposed to be in secret

.

I would not vote for her for any office

Very intelligent article. I’d be interested to know what Sarah Palin thinks about it.

McCain,Boehner, Rubio, Lindsey Graham, and Rogers have all failed this country miserably. Even Cantor punted.

Have been waiting for someone in the Media to ask Romney the Muslim Question - - -

For my (retirement) money, this subject is the most important to be addressed.

They have not asked him that important question or... about Gun Control and an Assault Weapons Ban... exactly what he plans to replace obamacare with... or how he will deal with terrorism, the TSA and DHS and all of the fluster cluck surrounding that debacle... or prosecuting those that broke the law in the obama regime or... what his plans are to rid us of the Super Committee and their treason... or where he will start shrinking government and how... or... you get the picture. Generalities and Platitudes are all mitt has issued to date.

The more specific Mitt gets the more fuel he supplies to nobama for negative ads.

I think Mitt is smart to hold the specifics until the convention and afterwards.

THE UNITED WEST-SEMINAR JULY 24, 2012 - THE FIRST, SECOND, and THIRD SESSION

The American West, a group led by Tom Trento, held a seminar on the threat to the United States by Islamists, specifically, the Muslim Brotherhood, with a series of sessions led by Tom Trento and John Guandolo, former Marine and FBI Agent of 12 years.

This is an excellent series. This video is approximately 2 hours long. There are two more videos to follow. COPY this video and distribute it to all your church members, friends and family.

Ronald Reagan didn't hold back. It looks like all of the attack ads on mitt by obama have failed to do anything but spend about 130 million dollars of obama’s stash.

No, if mitt creates plans that are sound... if his plans are plans that are conservative and tried and true... then he can destroy obama by turning his negative ads back on obama with stinging rebukes of fact.

The phrase "Conservatism works every time it is tried" is a true one. We have much history to claim as our very own successes. It is mitt that we are talking about and well... he will do exactly as you think that he should do. It is afterall... the safe path. Timidity is not a sign of strength. Limbaugh says this exact same thing too... and you can add Levin into the mix as he has urged mitt to bring on the Conservative solutions and argue them passionately.
