Skip to comments.Something is rotten in the U.S

The Huma Abedin flap, as I noted last week, illustrates how unserious Washingtons political establishment remains about the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamism.
Huma Abedin is deputy chief of staff in Secretary of State Hillary Clintons office, and the troubling aspect of this flap is Republican Sen. John McCains conduct. Instead of questioning the Obama administrations embrace of MB, McCain was quick to condemn those House Republicans raising concerns over Huma Abedins position in government.
McCains behaviour endears him with the liberal-left mainstream media as a maverick, while conservatives find him increasingly unworthy of respect.
American conservatives are not simply bitter about the 2008 election results, they hold McCain responsible for refusing to vet the questionable record of candidate Obama during the campaign. They see McCain as prime exhibit for term limits in Washington.
Democrats have behaved over the Huma Abedin flap, well, as Democrats. They have leaned to the left so egregiously over time that Democrats from the FDR-Truman-Kennedy-Johnson era would not recognize it, if they are still around, as the party to which they belonged.
The man most responsible for digging deep and connecting the dots surrounding the Huma Abedin flap is Andrew McCarthy. In several timely essays published recently, McCarthy has shown how deeply embedded the Abedin family has been and remains in the politics of MB through their long-term service to the Saudi kingdom.
In the limited space of this column all the dots linking Huma Abedin with the MB cannot be detailed. One has to read McCarthy and others he cites in his recent articles for the National Review Online and PJMedia.com.
But who is McCarthy? He is a former assistant U.S. attorney responsible for successfully prosecuting the blind Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, a senior member of the MB, for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
McCarthy disclosed the findings that sent Abdel-Rahman to life imprisonment in Willful Blindness (2008), a hugely important book on the war Islamists have declared against the infidel West.
He subsequently published The Grand Jihad (2010), and with this book established himself as the indisputable authority in America on the MB and its insidious jihad against the U.S. Moreover, McCarthy contends with irrefutable understanding of politics and history of the left in America how the left has enabled MB and its surrogates to entrench themselves inside the U.S.
McCarthy has shown Huma Abedin is not simply someone with an exotic background. She worked as assistant editor for the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs from 1996 through 2008 under Abdullah Omar Naseef, a major MB figure known for involvement in the financing of al-Qaida.
The JMMA is an arm of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs through which the Saudi-based Muslim World League distributes financial support internationally.
Abedins family, McCarthy reveals, has worked for the Institute and other MB-related organizations, thereby being intimately connected with Naseef at the centre of the Saudi-MB-al-Qaida nexus.
When the political establishment in Washington circles the wagons instead of investigating information on record, it shows that something is rotten, to paraphrase Shakespeare, in America.
So THAT'S how they got inside the beltway!
Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way that you can quickly understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper Prager Zeitungon
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those Who made him their president.”
Soft headed Republicans hear the name Huma, and they get visions of McCarthy dancing around on their balls. As for the sanctimonious old media mutt, McCain, he probably thinks Huma has the hots for him. Will he talk about it when he speaks at the GOP convention?
And don’t forget Valerie Jarett, Obama’s closest advisor and a woman with ties to the Iranians. How is it that two women with such questionable ties are on the very inside of the Administration.
Who’s on Dancing with the stars?
That is what America wants to know!
I believe it is called “bread and circuses.”
There, fixed it.
Brilliant and spot on.
Brilliant and spot on.
I’ve long thought that McCain may have the hots for anything related to Hillary. He’s pretty worthless and has squeezed all the juice out of the “War hero” status given him by democrats. I have my own theory about his conduct in Hanoi and the democrat hold on him, but no proof.
OMG that’s good!
Well here goes. I give my opinion and get scalded.
IMO McCain was turned at the POW camp he was in.
He finished 5th from the bottom of his Annapolis class, not exactly where they go to find pilots, but his Daddy was an Admiral.He was involved in the crash’s of 4 planes in the Navy which almost makes him an Ace for the other side.
McCain isn’t the brightest bulb on the tree in the first place, and sometimes he seems to get confused as to what party he belongs to.
Huma Abedin is rumored to be Hillary’s homosexual lover
,a suspiscion without incontrovertible evidence, but one that bares investigation as the Old Honeypot trick is an old one used by foreign governments ,and even our own Government as a means to an end.Huma with a family full of Muslims being married to a Jew and having his alledged child could easily be an obvious ploy and her husband a great beard.
Hillary ,despite all claims to the contrary is not the smartest woman in the world,and has proven in her dealing with her husband Bubba, that she will put up with anything to maintian her power.
She will ignore Bubba’s little flings and she will ignore our Muslim presidents support of Muslims in order to keep that Power.In fact she supports Muslims herself, perhaps because of Huma.
Is the play working for Huma.
It deserves to be looked into.
Yep-—sadly, maybe more than 45%——but it is because the Leftists have control over MSM and the schools and much more. They control of most corporations who shape the thinking of your children (sodomy is good) so that your children and their families self-destruct and are devoid of reason and knowledge—so they becomes slaves of the state and the flesh. The Satanists/Marxists will shut down corporations who don’t “think” correctly.
Brainwashing and Conditioning-—as the Nazis (Goebbels) learned from the leading Americans of the 20’s and Lenin’s pal, Pavlov.
It just took a few decades for technology and Billionaire Leftists to buy up all major publishing companies, all movie studios, control University content—promote The Beat mentality-—and newspapers (Whittaker Chambers was editor of NYT when a KGB spy in the 40’s—Get their plants in government to control policy (and support Communism) (Clinton sold us to the Chinese as did Gore)-—etc. etc. etc. This has been almost a hundred year process.
We are just filled with tons of lies and distractions—(Kardashians/Cruise/Monroe-—filling our heads with literal cr*p instead of Knowledge-—which all educated people knew prior to the removal of Classical education was that Wisdom and Knowledge were essential to Freedom.
In fact, Virtue is crucial to a Free Republic-—even stated by Cicero. The educated know it-—but their design of schools and media is to destroy Virtue-—by programming our children with lies and deceit and telling them if it “feels good—it is good”.
Great statement and so true.
It is why the Founders feared a Democracy much more than a Monarchy.
(Notice how the Leftists have taught our children that we live in a Democracy!) Just lies and twisted history in our schools-—it is why “the masses” are so stupid. We need to put Classical education back in the schools so Logic and Reason -Natural Law Theory (Common Sense) returns to the American people.
Common Sense is being erased-—it is a belief in the Laws of Nature-—and the Marxist don’t believe in it-—they need it destroyed—why the homosexual front is a Communist one-—to destroy the Nature of Man and replace it with an artificial construct that removes logic in little boys and girls-—where they will NEVER be able to make sense of the world and know REALITY.
I should add-—the Feminist movement of Friedan was also a Communist Front to destroy the nature of women-—to get them to think it a “right” to kill their own biological offspring and hate their body’s design and hate men. It also promotes promiscuity to destroy the Virtue of women which destroys the Virtue in any children they will have.
Friedan infiltrated and took over the Susan B. Anthony movement.
Marxism is all about putting people into groups-—identity politics to destroy unity and civil society.
To do it-—they have to destroy Virtue and Goodness in people. Hate is their MO. We see it in ALL Communist Fronts—the hate.
Logic 101: The falsehood of democracy is that everybody is allowed to put in his dime’s worth even if that dime does not belong to him.
Only those who make a personal contribution to society’s welfare should be allowed to cast a vote for its future.
“And dont forget Valerie Jarett..”
Ha ha! As if we would forget her.
She’s the sweet part of this sh_t sandwich that we’re all going to chew through to get this country back in order.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those Who made him their president.
***That’s well said. I think a large percentage of America is not particularly idealogical, pretty middle-of-the-road. They don’t think all that deeply about politics. This last time around the primary thought was probably, “well, it’s time we had a black president. It seemed to work well on TV in the Kiefer Sutherland show “24 Hours”. The danger to America really is the “citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency”.
