Republicans line up to rip Michele Bachmann [True? Or is Politico trying to divide us?]
Politico ^ | 7/19/12 | Jake Sherman

Posted on 07/19/2012 7:13:57 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

They were long afraid to do it, but now conservatives have their knives out for Rep. Michele Bachmann.

Senators in her own party, congressional candidates, a lawmaker in her state’s delegation and leaders of the House Republican Conference are all lambasting the Minnesota Republican for saying the wife of former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood...

Bachmann’s accusation came in a handful of letters to intelligence and national security agencies raising questions about the Muslim Brotherhood. The letters, also signed by four other Republicans, specifically mentioned Abedin, accusing her late father of having ties to the Brotherhood.

Sounds to me like Bachmann was tying her FATHER to the Muslim Brotherhood, and though I haven't read the letters, do we KNOW it was an "accusation" or merely a QUESTION?

Also, I thought we were told by Obamugabe and his butt lickers in the media that the Muslim Brotherhood was a great and wonderful element of the Arab Spring, and that fears about them were unfounded bigotry.

Finally, it doesn't surprise me some clown like McIgnoramus would rush to attack a Republican conservative...but Boehner's words seem a bit more like a cautious "I don't know what you're talking about, Mr. Reporter, but I'll look into it."

Meanwhile the Obamugabe loving media continues to ignore their hero's epic failure of Middle East foreign policy as the lunatics are reigning over there while thousands die.

I hope to God we fire his entire party in November...and let the media's ratings sink into the abyss...they're not doing their job...they're just walking agitprops for the Kenyan Communist.

The Muslim Brotherhood tentacles are nearly as deep in the GOP as they are in the democrats.

Juan McShamnesty and John Boner already put her down for this. They should be ashamed of themselves.

This chart on page four of the Domestic Intelligence Briefing by Mark Hass shows the FBI - Identified Terror Networks connected to the Muslim Brotherhood in North America.
Which should now raise even greater concerns since Huma Abedin-Weiner is the deputy chief of staff to Hillary Clinton, the United States Secretary of State. Did any vetting occur by Clinton’s people concerning Huma Abedin, her brother Hassan, or her mother Saleha Mahmoud Abedin, and any connections with known Islamists, particularly the Muslim Brotherhood?
But then again, would it have troubled Mrs. Clinton? After all, during her husband’s time as President, she warmly embraced Suha Arafat the wife of Yasser Arafat, arch-terrorist, right after a speech during which Suha Arafat falsely accused Israel of poisoning the Palestinian water supply.
Huma’s brother has “worked with Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal on a program of “spreading Islam to the west.” More intriguing is the fact that the Abedin family left Michigan for Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, around 1977, which is the same year that the Muslim Sisterhood was formed.
Couple this with the Clinton family playing a key role in promoting Fethullah Gulen who has worked assiduously to overthrow Turkey’s secular government. Gulen, who currently resides in Pennsylvania, has told his followers that in order for “worldwide Islamic domination to succeed, every method and path is acceptable, including lying to people.”

McCain is an idiot. The ONLY reason I voted for him was because of Sarah.

It’s easy enough to find news stories from 2008 and 2009 targeting Huma’s family as having connections with the Moslem Brotherhood and with the “sisterhood” ~ so what’s the problem with McCain? Is he having another ‘senior moment’ like 4 years ago when he cancelled campaigning.

McCain misses the good old days when he could do Ted Kennedy’s dirty work for him.

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.”

Summer 2008 a neighbor had a McCain - Palin campaign sign in his fron yard. However, he had cut the top half of the sign away, removing McCain from the sign and leaving only “Palin 2008.” Time has repeatedly and increasingly shown how wise that neighbor was!

And Boner? What can I say about Boner? What a disappointment!

Well since the Muslim Brotherhood is a pacifist organization working for the betterment of the Middle East, what’s the problem?

“Boehner says that while he doesn’t know Abedin personally, “from everything I do know of her, she has a sterling character, and I think accusations like this being thrown around are pretty dangerous.””

Hands down both of them. Boehner is an idiot. This guy should have done his homework on Huma Abedin. Or maybe he’s afraid he’ll wet his pants if he’s confronted by Mrs. Cankles.

There is no reason in the world this jerky wimp should remain House speaker. NONE AT ALL.

No he and Boner are just being themselves: RINO douche bags. What is worse is that Yahoo! has picked up on what they have said and is now burning Michelle at the stake. Our male congress-critters have no balls, and when the females finally stand up for principles they turn against them. Michelle, Sarah, you know the deal.

Bachmann has the facts. But too many Beltway Republicans are owned by Grover al-Norquist and will not look into terrorist co-cosnpirator CAIR. (Bush’s fault) And now that McCain and gang support the Muslim Brotherhood (and Al Qaeda) in Libya, Egypt and Syria, the Muslim Brotherhood must be protected at all costs, including that to American national security.
Here is the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization with 70 years of terrorism dedicated to establishing a new Caliphate: Allah is our objective; the Quran is our law, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.

Only time will tell. . . but free speech is clearly at risk here. Bohner and Mc Cain are the wimpiest of wimps . . . rushing to judgement in the name of pc. What else is new. . .

I thought I read that Grover Norquist himself is married to an Arab woman. Can’t recall from what country.

The point is that the socialist Republicans who gave us the socialist RINO Romney, do not like Bachmann’s point.

Bachmann is no fool and usually knows her case and the other guy’s opposing case too. She said as much today, on CSPAN while attending an Eagle Forum Q&Q with Alan West.

She knows the law and when it is being disregarded, usurped and undermined. There was a time when the nefarious were not invited to the White House, let alone set up with a fruit and punch meeting with the head of the United States National Security Council.

Right or wrong, Huma’s close association to nuclear family members who are closely associated and connected to terrorists group organizations, the Muslim Brotherhood, would be enough to eliminate her from access and position to the office of the US Secretary of State.

Bachmann knows the rules have been disregarded but that the rules apply. The Obama administration is a piece of work and the Boehners and McCains obviously don’t give a flip.

That makes sense-NOT. If she is so “sterling”, why is she still married to the creepy perv?

It isn’t conservatives who are after Bachman for pointing out Hum-a Weiner’s ties to the terrorist group. It’s McInsane, candy-ass Lindsey Graham, Boehner, and other RINOs.

This permits the leftists at Politico to Frame the discussion.

If McShame is a Conservative then Bachmann is a right wing radical.

Bachman does have a checkered past having worked in formal Democrat political structures.

Because of that if you compare her directly to McCain that makes her little more than someone who can read news articles, and frankly I'd like to know why it took her nearly 4 years to read the news about the Abadin family and it's close relationship to the Moslem Brotherhood?

I seem to recall several times we've discussed that on FR ~ and you think one of Michelle's staffers would have noticed.

If John Boehner could crawl out of his Gin Bottle,
he would know that there is a Muslim Brotherhood agent
in the Secretary of State's bed.

Jonathan Wiener was just a beard for Huma.

When I was on active duty, I had to go into several military sensitive areas to do radiation monitoring. I had to have a Top Secret clearance performed by the NSA and FBI. I met a Czech national whose Mother was an ambassador in New Orleans and had been on a couple of dates with her when I was ordered to visit the OSI. They flat told me that if I were to continue to date her I would lose my clearance because she was from a communist block country and had a close relative that was in the communist government. End of dating...Now, if just dating a bloc member would lose my clearance, how in the hell did Huma Abedin get hers without a problem with her close ties to a terrorist organization?

Mark Levin opened with this tonight and was livid. He chastised McShame and Grahamnesty and all the others who've vilified Bachmann and the others for having the guts to call this atrocity out. He's promised to cover this in greater detail, on tomorrow's show, with the research he's done so far.

McShame, Scott Brown, Jeff Flake are called "conservatives" by "Spitico"....pfffhhtt.

Of course. Your experience was typical wasn’t it. It is inexcusable where RINOS have taken us. Yes, I blame Republicans.

It’s all impeachable and the cowards enable it.

Only Israel and Poland are willing to stand and deliver. They are serious about defending themselves and have paid a price for doing so, but remain immovable.

The USA is done because conservatism is quite dead. It has gone the way of faith, which founded our country.

Thank you, for your awesome service. You helped delay the inevitable. Thank you.

I agree 100% with Bachmann. And by the way McShame
and Boner are RINOs of the first degree.
