“And my number-one priority is always to keep our diplomats safe and to keep our embassies safe.
~President Obama, Univision Town Hall, Sept. 20, 2010
Exactly who is Obama referring to when he says Our Diplomats and Our Embassies? The evidence that we now have on the embassy attack in Benghazi means that he isn’t talking about US Embassies. In fact, the evidence points to a President that is deliberately making certain that an enemy to American Freedom and Liberty is the only thing he is truly interested in protecting.
On September 11, 2001 Americans woke up to the horrendous news that an orchestrated attack was taking place against the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a third attack that failed resulting in a downed plane outside Pittsburgh. Al Qaeda terrorists had entered the country, used our own resources to learn to fly these planes and then used them as bombs filled with American Citizens to kill more American Citizens.
When the first plane hit the World Trade Center, President Bush was in a classroom with children and was notified of the attack. He would be endlessly criticized by the mainstream media for not immediately jumping up and responding, causing panic in the classroom.
On September 11, 2012 an American embassy is attacked killing an Ambassador and three other Americans. For the next 14 days President Obama refused to call this an act of terrorism in spite of the fact that within 24 hours they had all the information they needed to identify it as such. The press has not only been complicit in enabling the President in his failure to act in response to this act of terrorism, they have openly lied and defended him in this cover-up of a terrorist attack. This was most painfully evident to any thinking American during the 2nd Presidential Debate.
The President’s Univision Town Hall statement, with regards to Benghazi is a bold faced lie. When it came to Benghazi, his number-one priority was NOT keeping the embassy or the Ambassador safe. He set a course of actions which enabled and resulted in the death of the Ambassador and three other Americans through a process of appeasing an enemy force that has openly called for the elimination of all Western values.
In May of 2011 this President usurped the powers of the Office of President by-passing Congress to commit troops in support of the “Arab Spring” violating the War Powers Resolution. He painted a picture in America of tyrants and dictators being toppled by a people who wanted freedom and democracy. He lied. The force he enabled is not interested in freedom or democracy. He joined in the NATO effort and used his comrades in the national media to spread this propaganda. In fact what was happening was a new form of empire building by the forces of Al Qaeda to take down government and replace those governments with Sharia Law. Their boldness was such that by the end of the year Al Qaeda flags were flying over Government buildings in Libya. While widely reported in Europe, here in America we heard little through the mainstream media who was more interested in the proverbial thrills running up their legs than it was in the best interest of America.
To insist that journalism is not part of the problem is perhaps one of the greatest deceptions in America today. There is no way that the propagandists of the Obama Administration are unaware of what is happening in the world in the expansion of extreme radical elements of Muslim war and hatred. There is nothing secret about this radical element of Muslim extremism. They have been open and public in their intentions. They have published documents that are readily available to anyone who wants to know the truth.
One doesn’t have to feel nostalgia for Hosni Mubarak’s dictatorship to recognize that the new Islamist government in Egypt seems intent on doing far more harm to human rights and U.S. interests than Mubarak ever did. The same can be said of Muammar Gaddafi. What has happened is this President and NATO’s support of the Arab Spring has put the Muslim Brotherhood front and center in the Middle East and has played directly into the hands of Al Qaeda putting the world at risk of the escalation of terrorism. For all the false charges of Bush’s war being American Empire Building, President Barrack Obama has enabled the building of a Muslim Brotherhood Empire, toppling governments and placing them in hands of the single most powerful terrorist group in the world.
The administration knew what was happening in Libya and they knew months before the actual attack; months before there was a trailer for a non-existent movie that Obama insisted was the cause of the unrest. They knew this attack had nothing to do with a video and they knew there was no spontaneous demonstration that got out of hand. They knew and they lied to the American people and the mainstream press knew and they served as willing accomplices to the lies and deceptions.
In a Feb. 1 memorandum, Eric A. Nordstrom, the regional security officer for the Department of State warned that “Al-Qaida affiliated groups, including Al-Qaida In the Islamic Magreb (AQIM), and other violent extremist groups are likely to take advantage of the ongoing political turmoil in Libya. The U.S. Government remains concerned that such individuals and groups … may use Libya as a platform from which to conduct attacks in the region.”
On Feb. 11, Shawn P. Crowley of the Department of State, had apologized to Karen Keshap, a State Department manager and other officials in an email for “being a broken record” on the subject of inadequate security in Benghazi. Crowley added: “(T)omorrow Benghazi will be down to two (DS) agents. … This will leave us unable to do any outreach to Libyan nationals … and we will be extremely limited in the ability to obtain any useful information for reporting.”
“I’ve been placed in a very difficult spot,” said Eric A. Nordstrom in a Feb. 12 email to a colleague, “when the ambassador (Gene Cretz, at that time) that I need to support Benghazi but can’t direct MSD (a mobile security detachment) there and been advised that DS (Diplomatic Security) isn’t going to provide more than 3 agents over the long term.”
“DS is hesitant to devout (sic) resources and as I indicated previously, this has severely hampered operations in Benghazi,” wrote Karen Keshap to main State Department in Washington the day before. “That often means that DS agents are there guarding a compound with 2 other DOS (Department of State) personnel present. That often also means that outreach and reporting is non-existent.”
By Feb. 20, Nordstrom was noting the easy access that neighborhood militias enjoyed to “military grade weapons, such as RPGs and vehicle mounted, crew-served machine guns or AA weapons (23mm),” as well as “AK-47s, heavy weapons, and vehicle mounted weapons.”
Things only grew worse. In the 13 months prior to the September 11th attack of the America Embassy there were 230 security breaches in Libya. The same unrest was growing in Syria and Egypt as well as Kuwait, Tunisia and now in Somalia. At the core on this movement, every step of the way is Al Qaeda. The Al Qaeda flag was being flown over government buildings in Tripoli and Benghazi.
“Until the GOL (Government of Libya) is able to effectively deal with these key issues,” Ambassador Stevens wrote on June 25, “the violence is likely to continue and worsen.”
After the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi had been damaged by an improvised explosive device, earlier that month, Stevens had reported to his superiors that an Islamist group had claimed credit for the attack, and in so doing, had “described the attack as targeting the Christians supervising the management of the consulate.”
“Islamic extremism appears to be on the rise in eastern Libya,” the ambassador wrote, adding that “the Al-Qaeda flag has been spotted several times flying over government buildings and training facilities …”
The documents also contain evidence that the State Department’s denials of requests for enhanced security in Benghazi in the months leading up to the attack may have contributed to the ability of the attackers to plan their assault on the consulate and annex grounds without being detected.
Writing on Aug. 8, the ambassador noted that in just a few months’ time, “Benghazi has moved from trepidation to euphoria and back as a series of violent incidents has dominated the political landscape.” He added, “The individual incidents have been organized,” a function of “the security vacuum that a diverse group of independent actors are exploiting for their own purposes.”
“Islamist extremists are able to attack the Red Cross with relative impunity,” Stevens cabled. “What we have seen are not random crimes of opportunity, but rather targeted and discriminate attacks.” His final comment on the two-page document was: “Attackers are unlikely to be deterred until authorities are at least as capable.”
On Sept. 11 — the day Stevens and three other Americans were killed — the ambassador signed a three-page cable, labeled “sensitive,” in which he noted “growing problems with security” in Benghazi and “growing frustration” on the part of local residents with Libyan police and security forces. These forces the ambassador characterized as “too weak to keep the country secure.”
In the document, Stevens also cited a meeting he had held two days earlier with local militia commanders. These men boasted to Stevens of exercising “control” over the Libyan Armed Forces, and threatened that if the U.S.-backed candidate for prime minister were to prevail in Libya’s internal political jockeying, “they would not continue to guarantee security in Benghazi.”
This is all information the State Department and this administration were fully aware of. Some of these issues had actually made it into the foreign press. Foreign press had written about threats to Ambassador Steven’s life. The Foreign press openly covered the withdrawal of the Red Cross from Libya over concerns about terrorism and security. An attack in June forced other Foreign officials to withdraw from Libya and this was also covered by foreign media but not here in America. It is now being reported that foreign Military weapons that were being stored by the US in our consulate have now fallen into the hands of terrorists.
A recently released video from an Obama event at Ohio University showcases many people who have not heard of the ‘9/11 Benghazi’ attacks or the murder of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans. While they all proudly and definitively proclaimed that they intended to vote for President Obama, they were shamelessly ignorant of the recent events in Libya. Not only does this video say a lot about Obama supporters, it is also says a lot about the quality of education that college students are receiving today. The vast majority of the respondents were unaware that there had been an attack on an American consulate and did not know who Ambassador Chris Stevens was. It is especially disappointing to think that college students can be so alarmingly uninformed on such an important news event. Some Americans are outraged as the propaganda machine coming out of the White House and enabled by the mainstream media who tries to spin this to the President’s political advantage but facts are stubborn things. The majority of Americans are, however, clueless.
Here are some facts. Obama has acted since the terrorist attack on September 11, 2012 and what he has done has further empowered the Al Qaeda not retaliated.
The President, who won’t do an interview on Fox News, told Comedy Central:
“Now there’s some tough trade-offs, I mean there are times when there are bad folks somewhere on the other side of the world and you’ve got to make a call and it’s not optimal,” he continued. “When you look at our track record as to say we’ve ended the war in Iraq, we’re winding down the war in Afghanistan we’ve gone after Al Qaeda and it’s leadership, it’s true that Al Qaeda is still active at least remnants of it are staging in North Africa and the Middle East, and sometimes you’ve got to make some tough calls, but you can do so that is consistent with international law and American law.”
Whether this is true or not depends if you call deliberately losing a war we had won in Iraq as “ended”, a precipitous retreat from Afghanistan “winding down”, and an al Qaeda that is more active today than it was six years ago as “remnants.”
In August of 2012 this al Qaeda remnant kidnapped and executed one of Syria’s most famed TV news anchors. The reason for the execution was the the journalist showed the terrorists dragging a family leader and his men into the streets and executing them. Iraq’s Qanon news website reported that armed rebel al Qaeda groups attacked the house of a Shiite Iraqi family in the Seyede Zainab neighborhood in the capital city of Damascus, killed all members of the family and hanged the last one, a little child. The terrorist members of the so-called Free Syrian Army, under al Qaeda, kidnapped 15 family members and executed them in front of a local school. In the same month of August Abu Hilal was told he’d be given his freedom as part of a “prisoner exchange.” In reality, al Qaeda terrorists had planted a bomb in the bed of the truck Hilal would be driving and planned to detonate it remotely. Al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists, in Syria, Iraq, and beyond, have used unwitting “human bombs” driving vehicles or carrying parcels rigged with explosives they had no knowledge of – claiming they are “suicide bombers.” The Telegraph in the UK reported that al Qaeda was recruiting in Syria and were being paid up to $3,000 a month to Jihad and are even being paid bonuses of up to $750 for each infidel the behead. The same report explained that Christians in Syria have been forced to form a militia to fight back against al Qaeda sponsored terrorism from various Salafi Jihadists groups are engaging in genocidal ethnic cleansing in their campaign to spread Saudi Arabia’s fundamentalist version of Islam throughout the world.
Very few Americans realize this Administration is funding Islamic Terrorists who are killing Christians to overthrow governments that once protect them. According to the Vatican’s official news service – Fides – and many other Christian news sources, the Syrian opposition is targeting Christians. Priests and bishops on the ground in Syria have confirmed these reports.
Thanks to the Obama regime Al Qaeda has enjoyed resurgence. It’s not just the Middle East. The Arab Spring has spread to Europe Asia and is growing strength in North Africa. Known by the acronym AQIM, for Al Qaeda in the Maghreb, it is nothing if not ambitious
According to West Point’s center on terrorism, ”a rough sketch” of AQIM’s principle objectives includes ridding North Africa of western influence, overthrowing apostate “unbeliever” governments (including Algeria, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, and Tunisia), and installing fundamentalist regimes based on Islamic law or Sharia. Experts say AQIM’s narrative blends Salafi-jihadi ideology with North African nuances, including references to the early Islamic conquest of the Maghreb and the Iberian Peninsula. A component of the Salafi-jihadi philosophy is waging war against the “far enemy,” which, in the case of AQIM, is primarily Spain and France. The group has referred to Spain as “our country” and called for its reconquest; likewise, AQIM has declared war on France, which reciprocated the gesture in 2010.
Thanks to our opportunistic and ill-considered overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi, AQIM now has established toehold on the Mediterranean.
To further aid these terrorist organizations the President released this memorandum:
Presidential Memorandum — Presidential Determination with respect to the Child Soldiers Prevention Act of 2008
MEMORANDUM FOR THE SECRETARY OF STATE
SUBJECT: Determination with Respect to the Child Soldiers Prevention Act of 2008
Pursuant to section 404 of the Child Soldiers Prevention Act of 2008 (CSPA) (title IV, Public Law 110-457), I hereby determine that it is in the national interest of the United States to waive the application of the prohibition in section 404(a) of the CSPA with respect to Libya, South Sudan, and Yemen; and further determine that it is in the national interest of the United States to waive in part the application of the prohibition in section 404(a) of the CSPA with respect to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, to allow for continued provision of International Military Education and Training funds and nonlethal Excess Defense Articles, and the issuance of licenses for direct commercial sales of U.S. origin defense articles; and I hereby waive such provisions accordingly.
You are authorized and directed to submit this determination to the Congress, along with the accompanying Memorandum of Justification, and to publish the determination in the Federal Register.
You read that right. It wasn’t enough to allow thousands of weapons to travel across the border with this Administration’s failed Fast and Furious program so they could be used by drug cartels against Americans, now this president is giving money to countries who make use of child soldiers. Apparently killing babies before they are born isn’t enough for this President. He wants to kill them on the battlefield and he wants to make sure American Tax-Payer dollars fund this mechanism. Why would any individual who would defend leaving a baby to die after a failed abortion attempt in a soiled linen closet care what happens to children in the hands of terrorist radicals. This should come as a shock to no one!
Shortly after Ambassador Stevens death was announced Lebanese press reports that the Ambassador was sodomized with a plunger handle before being murdered. AFP (American Free Press) originally prints the story but is pressured by the administration to backtrack on the account. Whether or not that story is true remains to be seen but one thing cannot be refuted. Raw video footage, easy available in a simple google search, shows the terrorists dragging the body of Ambassador Stevens out of the building and cheering wildly upon recognizing him. The NY Times claims this is a video of peaceful Muslims trying to “rescue” the Ambassador. While the body of Ambassador Stevens lies on the cold ground the terrorist’s cell phones come out to capture the moment. His shirt is pulled up to reveal a wound under his left armpit. He is propped up to a sitting position so more pictures clearly identifying him could be taken. He is then thrown over the shoulder of one individual like a sack of potatoes and paraded through the streets.
Then the President seeks to blame the actions of this terrorist organization by blaming an amateurish trailer for a movie that offended the prophet Mohammed. If that were justification alone than the Embassies of any Muslim nation in any country should have been burned to the ground with the release, by radical Muslims, of the horrendous treatment to Ambassador Steven’s dead body. I wonder if President Obama would have been as kind to that retaliation.
That retaliation did not occur because the rest of the world isn’t made up of the monsters that make up the most radical extremes of Muslim ideology. You can’t call them animals because even animals don’t treat their prey the way these radical Muslim extremists do. These are Monsters and represent the most evil potential in the human life form. There is nothing humane in their goals regardless of the efforts of this President or any other individual who supports or gives aid to the extreme radicalism of this Muslim ideology.
Even more ridiculous than the claims that the terrorists in the video are rescuers, according to CBS news, the Ambassador’s body was eventually taken to a Libyan hospital. The doctor, in this interview, claims that no one knew who he was and that the Ambassador had died from asphyxiation and there were no other wounds or injuries to the body the doctor continues this charade by claiming he tried to resuscitate him for 90 minutes. No one at CBS challenges the doctor’s statements in spite of video and photo evidence to the contrary. No one even questions the ridiculous nature of the comment of trying to revive the dead Ambassador for 90 minutes. In the most basic life-saving course you learn that the brain cannot survive long without oxygen and the continued lack of oxygen in the blood combined with the cardiac arrest will lead to the deterioration of brain cells causing first brain damage and eventually brain death from which recovery is generally considered impossible. A lack of oxygen or chemical changes in the lungs may cause the heart to stop beating; this cardiac arrest stops the flow of blood and thus stops the transport of oxygen to the brain. Cardiac arrest used to be the traditional point of death but at this point there is still a chance of recovery. The brain will die after approximately six minutes without oxygen. The 90 minutes came from a trained physician, not just somebody taking a life-saving course.
That same media outlet, CBS News, would be the first on the roof of the supposedly secret safe-house. The report discusses that the supposedly secret route to the supposedly secret Safe House was targeted and ambushed with precision rockets. They knew the exact route they would take to the safe house and the location of the safe house. While on the roof of the safe house they held up one of two flak jackets found on the roof. The neck of the flak jacket is stained with blood. No one questions why, during an assault with heavy artillery on the safe house, a soldier would remove their flak jackets and helmets. No one will mention the possibility that these men were beheaded.
This report aired two days after the attack on the Embassy and the President was still selling a story of a youtube video and demonstration gone bad.
It would take a month before the American media would comment on the fact that important security information was being stored in the U.S. Benghazi Embassy along with British weapons and military vehicles which were left behind when the British Consulate fled Benghazi. That is all now in the hands of al Qaeda terrorists. Anyone closely following this story in the European press knew this a week after the attack.
Rather than outrage at the President for lying to the American people, the mainstream press has tried to cover for the President. Remember Bush lied and people died…where is that cry about this President?
The Pravda, at the height of its political Communist Propaganda, would envy this Administration’s hold on mainstream news. The same media outlet that almost daily reported on the death count of Bush’s War on Terror fails to mention that 70% of all military deaths in the War of Terror happened under this President’s watch. That same media refuses to publish that 80% of the wounded occurred under this President. That’s in less than 4 years compared to 7 years following the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. In fact this administration will not use the term “War on Terror” instead using the term Overseas Contingency Operation.
In spite of all the evidence to the contrary the Press allows this President to spread the lies and deception that the reason for the act of terrorism on a US Consulate is a youtube video. In spite of fragments of rocket propelled grenades, this President still insists this was a demonstration that got out of hand. Can you seriously call a demonstration one that “got out of hand” when the participants were armed with Rocket Propelled Grenades?
Every step of the way this President has downplayed Al Qaeda and terrorism. He has perpetuated the lie that terrorist factions are weakening. The opposite is true. This President has empowered them and through his unconstitutional actions in violation of the War Powers Resolution is solely responsible for the role America played in helping Al Qaeda build a new empire of terror. It isn’t incompetence as some would gracefully charge. It is deliberate.
It isn’t terrorists who have been weakened. It is the American Military who has been weakened. It is the National Security of America that is at risk.
This President has empowered the Muslim Brotherhood and given new revitalized strength to Al Qaeda. As bad as Fast and Furious was it pales in comparison but Fast and Furious alone should have been warning enough. With no actions taken against Holder for Fast and Furious, I can no longer accept any of this as coincidental but after the embassy attack in Benghazi I am firmly convinced it is INTENTIONAL!
While continually making excuses for radical Muslim extremism he has demonstrated his disdain for America and her allies. His attack on the Roman Catholic Church; His intentional disregard for Netanyahu; His deliberate driving of America further into economic collapse; More Americans in governmental dependency; Cutting medicare to expand Medicaid; The war against private sector jobs and the expansion of government; His insistence that the reason for funding Planned Parenthood, the ultimate baby killing machine, is mammograms in spite of every evidence that Planned Parenthood does not do mammograms; Abuses of executive orders and the expansion of governmental regulatory powers all crippling economic growth….this is all part of a carefully planned strategy: A strategy to destroy America as a World Power. It is the same strategy that his American hating friends, some of whom hold key positions of power in his administration, including Eric Holder who once helped orchestrate an attack on an ROTC building at Columbia University, have embraced.
As college student, Eric Holder participated in ‘armed’ takeover of former Columbia University ROTC office. As a freshman at Columbia University in 1970, future Attorney General Eric Holder participated in a five-day occupation of a Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters with a group of black students later described by the university’s Black Students’ Organization as “armed.” Department of Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler has not responded to questions about whether Holder himself was armed — and if so, with what sort of weapon. Holder was then among the leaders. President Obama attended Columbia University. He is listed in the Columbia University Student Directory from the 1982-1983 school year.
Eric Holder is not the lone radical of the Obama Administration. Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett (her parents were American expatriates) found a foothold in Chicago politics through her marriage to Dr. William Robert Jarrett. Through her husband’s father, Vernon Jarrett, Valerie Jarrett was soon entrenched in Chicago politics, and in which she facilitated Barack Obama’s rise.
Valerie Jarrett spent the first five years of her life living in Iran, as her father, James E. Bowman, was working as a doctor in Iran at the time. Dr. James E. Bowman served in the U.S. State Department on the Committee for Science Cooperation between the United States and Iran. He also was a consultant for the Islamic Republic of Iran, the United Arab Emirates, Defence Forces, Laboratory Program.
Her father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, was a journalistic giant. After his death, he was praised by the People’s Weekly Worker, a Communist publication. He served on a labor committee that was dominated by Communists. This is where he met Frank Marshall Davis, the communist who later became a mentor to Barack Obama.
After Mayor Daley made Valerie Jarrett commissioner of planning, she became embroiled in a massive screw-up in the city’s public housing revitalization plan, which cost Chicago millions of dollars in overruns. Daley fired her without explanation. After she left city hall, Jarrett became CEO of Habitat Executive Services, where she earned $300,000 in salary and $550,000 in deferred compensation. She managed a federally subsidized housing complex that was seized by the government after inspectors found crime-infested slum conditions and widespread blight.
Obama was not Valerie Jarrett’s only project. She saw to the appointment of Van Jones as White House “green jobs” czar, noting that “we’ve been watching him…for as long as he’s been active out in Oakland.” (That activity included an anti-American rally on Sep. 12, 2001.) Her authority in the White House is almost unchallenged.
In ”Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him,“ Richard Miniter writes that Obama, at the urging of Valerie Jarrett, canceled the “kill” mission in January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March before finally approving the May 2, 2011 Navy SEAL mission.
John Holdren is Obama’s Director of Science and Technology Policy. He co-authored a book that discussed different ways that could be used to curb overpopulation. Some of the methods mentioned in the book include mandatory abortion, putting a limit on family size, and putting sterilants in drinking water and other foods. Holdren has called for a “Planetary Regime” that would control the global economy. This Planetary Regime would control people’s lives through the use of a worldwide police force. Holdren has also suggested that people who “contribute to social deterioration” should be forced to reproduce responsibly… or be forced into abortions or sterilization.
Carol Browner is Director of the White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy. According to the Washington Times, was “one of 14 leaders of Socialist International’s Commission for a Sustainable World Society” (Agenda 21). This called for prosperous countries to have smaller economies to help prevent climate change. They are also against a fence running along the US-Mexican border. She also ran the EPA for President Clinton.
Hillary Clinton’s Aide, Huma Abedin, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, who is said to advise the secretary of state on Middle East policy, was a member of the executive board of the Muslim Student Association. The Muslim Student Association, or MSA, was identified as a Muslim Brotherhood front group in a 1991 document introduced into evidence during the terror-financing trial of the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation trial. The internal Brotherhood memo said Muslim Brotherhood members “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and by the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” The MSA was established in 1963 by Muslim Brotherhood leaders to recruit young people into the movement, which is dedicated to “resurrecting true Islamic governance worldwide” based on Islamic law, or Shariah, according to a dossier by the Investigative Project on Terrorism. Former MSA leaders directly tied to international violent jihad include al-Qaida cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, convicted American student Ramy Zamzam, Somali al-Shabaab leader Omar Hammami and al-Qaida fundraiser Abdurahman Alamoudi, a former national MSA president who is now serving a 23-year prison sentence.
Abedin worked for an organization founded by her family that is effectively at the forefront of a grand Saudi plan to mobilize U.S. Muslim minorities to transform America into a strict Wahhabi-style Islamic state, according to an Arabic-language manifesto issued by the Saudi monarchy. Abedin, who was born in the U.S. but raised in Saudi Arabia, has been fiercely defended by both Democrats and Republicans since five Republican lawmakers led by Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., cited her as an example of possible Muslim Brotherhood infiltration and asked the inspector generals at the departments of Homeland Security, Justice and State to investigate.
President Obama praised Abedin at a White House Ramadan dinner July 10, declaring her “nothing less than extraordinary in representing our country and the democratic values that we hold dear.”
The Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs – founded by her late father and currently directed by her mother – is backed by the Muslim World League and founded by Muslim Brotherhood leaders.
Janet Napolitano, appointed a man named Mohamed Elibiary to DHS’ Security Advisory Council, and given him a top secret clearance and access to America’s vital intelligence and security data. Mr. Elibiary is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. He started the Freedom and Justice Center in Plano, Texas back in 2002. That organization is the Muslim Brotherhood’s political arm in America. In addition, Elbiary had recently been accused, by Texas’ attorney general, of accessing security information from that southern state’s Department of Public Safety and making those secrets available to the media.
Congressman Gohmert asked Ms. Napolitano, who was under oath, if she knew of Elibiary’s past ties to radical Islamists when she appointed him to DHS’ Security Advisory Council. The Texas republican emphasized to his colleagues the point that Elibiary now enjoys access to FBI, DHS, NSA, military and other sensitive security information. DHS’ Napolitano refused to answer his inquiries, acting defiant and arrogant in the process.
Back in June of 2009, President Barack Obama flew to Cairo, Egypt and gave an impassioned speech to the Egyptian people, as well as the entire Muslim world. During the president’s talk, he emphasized our less-than-steller treatment of Muslims over the years, and apologized for American support of Middle Eastern tyrannical dictators, through U.S. policy, in the past.
Mr. Obama entitled his speech a “New Beginning” and that this philosophy was being ushered in throughout the Arab world. Was this some kind of signal? Within a year and-a-half, demonstrations peppered the Egyptian landscape, and soon thereafter Mubarak was toppled. Similar uprisings blanketed the Middle East and our President and his administration hailed the ‘Arab Spring’ revolutions as historic; which they certainly were.
Salam al-Marayati founded and serves as Executive Director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). He is a documented supporter of Hezbollah and other radical Islamist groups. MPAC formed back in 1986 as the political action committee for the Islamic Center for Southern California. A founder of the Islamic Center was Hassan Hathout, a senior member of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood who had emigrated to the U.S. The former Iraqi al-Marayati is a guest at the White House on occasion.
Arif Alikahn once served in the Department of Homeland Security and was involved in a high-level position for DHS policy development. He currently serves as a distinguished, visiting professor for DHS policies and counterterrorism at our National Defense University. Alikahn served also as a Deputy Mayor for the City of Los Angeles, where he helped stop their policy of attempting to monitor suspicious activities at Muslim mosques and madrassas (religious schools), and to profile Islamic extremists.
Rashad Hussain currently serves as a U.S. State Department Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperaton. Hussain spoke at a conference for the Association of Muslim Social Scientists, a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate. After President Obama’s 2009 Cairo speech on a “New Beginning”, Mr. Hussain, who is a trial attorney, worked in the Department of Justice and with National Security officials very closely together in Egypt, and up to the Arab Spring. He has a long history of affiliations close to the Muslim Brotherhood and their causes. A few years ago Hussain is on record as to describing our prosecution of the U.S. leader of a radical Palestinian terrorist organizaton (Hamas?) as one of many “politically motivated persecutions”. Keep in mind that he currently serves in the U.S. State Department.
Imam Mohamed Magid, a Sudanese Muslim cleric, sits on the Homeland Security Countering Violent Extremism Working Group and reports to Janet Napolitano. That’s interesting, because he is the President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), which has known ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. ISNA opened up a new $21 million headquarters in Indianapolis with funding from….the Muslim Brotherhood. Imam Magid was in the news recently. Do you remember the unfortunate Quran burnings by our military personnel back in February and over in Afghanistan. The incident sparked violent protests all over the country, resulting in several deaths including U.S. troops.
Soon after the holy books were burned, a U.S. Department of Defense Assistant Secretary named Peter Lavoy visited the ADAMS Center on behalf of our government. Imam Magid happens to be the Executive Director of the Virginia-based mosque and madrassa. Lavoy was there to apologize to Magid on behalf of the U.S. and our president. He even attended a Muslim service there and not only asked forgiveness to the Imam, but also all attendees.
Eboo Patel serves on the Obama administration’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships. He has spoken in front of the Muslim Students Association and at a ISNA convention. Additionally, Eboo Patel sat on a panel at this joint ISNA/MSA conference with Tariq Ramadan, grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder, and Siraj Wahhaj, a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
Why would President Obama support the agenda of a radical Islamist group such as the Muslim Brotherhood? I mean, they advocate violence and non-tolerance against Jews, Christians and women. With respect to the latter, what of the Brotherhood’s view of women as property, with no rights of governing, free speech, voting or ownership?
Is our national security at risk because of individuals that our president and Janet Napolitano from DHS have allowed to be placed in sensitive areas of our government? Has valuable intelligence fallen into the hands of Muslim terrorists because of blatant stupidity…..or is there a more sinister motive at work here? Is it a coincidence that our government just announced that the ‘War on Terror’ had ended? Are we being set up for some type of attack or major political unrest in America much like the Arab Spring? Remember that our culture represents everything that is contrary to their Islamist fundamentalist ideology. They will still want to convert or destroy any non-believers according to their theocratic teachings.
This President is more than simply an enabler of terrorists, he is an accomplice. As a result, the terrorist threat to military communities is “severe and on the rise” while political correctness continues to stifle the military’s ability to effectively understand and counter the threat. In fact, according to a shocking report released by the House Committee on Homeland Security, the Obama Administration has chosen political correctness over accurately labeling and identifying certain terrorist attacks appropriately, even denying Purple Hearts medals to killed and wounded troops in domestic terror attacks.
The scathing report is the result of a heated series of committee hearings on the taboo issue of Islamic radicalization in the United States, a subject that the administration evidently fears will alienate Muslims. The bottom line is that al Qaeda is using U.S.-based Muslim radicals to plan mass casualty attacks. “Homegrown radicalization is now the vanguard of al Qaeda’s strategy to continue attacking the United States and its allies,” congressional investigators found.
Recent cases of Islamic radicals threatening military communities are documented in the report. For instance, in June 2009 a U.S. Muslim convert (Carlos Bledsoe) opened fire on a U.S. Army recruiting office in Arkansas. “Bledsoe specifically targeted the U.S. military to avenge what he believed was its mistreatment of Muslims,” the report says. “He also had traveled to Yemen and was radicalized to al Qaeda’s violent Islamist extremist ideology.”
The other case received worldwide media attention because an Army Major (Nidal Hasan) murdered 13 people and wounded 29 others at Fort Hood in Texas. “In another glaring instance of al Qaeda-inspired homegrown terrorism, the government also neglected to indict Maj. Nidal Hasan on any terrorism-related charges, considering the case to be an example of ‘workplace violence’ despite his reported e-mail communications with the operational leader [of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula], the since-slain American terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki,” the report said.
Additionally, a policy allowing radical Muslim clerics to lecture in U.S. prisons and circulate jihadist materials is contributing to the creation of Islamist terrorists, investigators found. The radicalization of American Muslims remains “a real and serous homeland security threat,” according the committee’s findings, and the U.S. government needs to “confront the Islamist ideology driving radicalization.”
The U.S. government “cannot continue to simply ignore or deflect” the threat posed by radical American Muslims, it concludes. “Unfortunately, it appears that that within the United States, political correctness has prevented many from sufficiently acknowledging and tackling this dangerous problem. We continue to face an unwavering threat, and must be fully aware that homegrown radicalization is part of al Qaeda’s strategy to continue attacking the United States.”
As implausible as this dangerous PC revolution may seem, the Homeland Security committee’s findings are backed by the Obama Administration’s ongoing Muslim outreach effort. Under the initiative Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano met to discuss national security matters with a group of extremist Muslim organizations, the nation’s space agency (NASA) was ordered to focus on Muslim diplomacy and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed a special order to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties long banned them from the U.S.
The president also sent an America-bashing mosque leader (Feisal Abdul Rauf) who blames U.S. foreign policy for the 9/11 attacks on a Middle Eastern outreach mission and ordered a government-funded meal program for home-bound seniors to offer halal cuisine prepared according to Islamic law.
Earlier this year the administration revamped the way it trains federal agents to combat terrorism and violent extremism by eliminating all materials that shed a negative light on Muslims. As part of the transformation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) destroyed instructional material that characterizes Muslims as prone to violence or terrorism. In all, 700 pages of documents from about 300 presentations given to agents since the 2001 terrorist attacks were purged.
There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind, once these facts are placed in front of them, that this President has surrendered to the very people who waged war in American of September 11, 2001 brutally killing thousands of our people. Sadly, most Americans remain unaware of the threat to the American way of life that this president is promoting. We have the mainstream News Media to blame. We also have the distortions of those who still insist that September 1, 2001 was a planned and orchestrated attack by the Bush administration to take us to war.
The 2001 attack was fueled and strengthened by the Clinton Administration’s compliance with terrorist forces in the growing surge of al Qaeda forces in the Middle East. In four short years, this Administration has not only furthered the radical Muslim outreach, it has handed the governments of several Middle East Countries to an element of the Muslim society that has called for the extermination of ALL Western Values and the complete collapse and destruction from within of America.
None of this is accidental. Then again Obama did tell us shortly before taking office that he was going to fundamentally transform America.
For the last several months I have heard the repeated claims that there is no difference between Romney and Obama. This is a boldface lie. I am sick and tired of seeing America blamed for the attacks against us. As a Libertarian, I am offended that this is continually perpetuated as truth by members of the Party I most closely align myself with. You simply cannot ignore the long train of abuses to individual rights and Liberty that Sharia Law imposes on individuals nor can we afford to ignore the history of violent aggression connected to radical elements of Muslin ideology. To the radical Islamist, they need no excuse for violence. The mere fact that we are non-believers makes us infidels and that makes us worthy of extermination. In all the elements of the blame America mentality one must begin with the assumption that there is no real evil in the world and this is simply not true. The blame America mentality points to isolated evils in America and then converts that into national reality while ignoring the dominant evils elsewhere in the world. For the radical Muslim cause and effect is irrelevant. Their cause (the domination of the world and its subjugation to Muslim religious rule) is reason enough for any action regardless of the violence.
There is a long history in the most radical elements of extremist Muslim Occupation that goes back to its very origins. Our founders warned us of the barbarous acts of violence committed by Muslim extremists and this has continued to this very day. That history cannot be ignored. They actively engaged in the slave trade and large portions of radical Muslims still engage in this atrocity.
The Barbary pirates, sometimes called Barbary corsairs or Ottoman corsairs, were pirates and privateers who operated from North Africa, based primarily in the ports of Tunis, Tripoli and Algiers. This area was known in Europe as the Barbary Coast, a term derived from the name of its Berber inhabitants. Their predation extended throughout the Mediterranean, south along West Africa’s Atlantic seaboard and even South America, and into the North Atlantic as far north as Iceland, but they primarily operated in the western Mediterranean. In addition to seizing ships, they engaged in Razzias, raids on European coastal towns and villages, mainly in Italy, France, Spain, and Portugal, but also in the British Isles, the Netherlands and as far away as Iceland. The main purpose of their attacks was to capture Christian slaves for the Islamic market in North Africa and the Middle East. Such raids had occurred since soon after the Muslim conquest of the region.
Corsairs captured thousands of ships, and long stretches of coast in Spain and Italy were almost completely abandoned by their inhabitants, discouraging settlement until the 19th century. From the 16th to 19th century, corsairs captured an estimated 800,000 to 1.25 million people as slaves.
They openly enabled Hitler and the Axis in their rise to power supporting the efforts to exterminate Jews. They have continually called for the annihilation of Israel and they have continually identified America as a nation of infidels and unbelievers who must be eliminated. They have persecuted Christians, burned their churches and beheaded Christian captives. They tolerate giving away children as wives. Some of these beheadings are long and painful processes because they are done with knives essentially slowly sawing off the head of their “enemy.”
The President’s statement that the brutal death of 4 Americans on American soil at our Embassy “is not optimal” is insulting. It simply perpetuates the mentality that things like this are little more than “bumps in the road.” His attempts to downplay this attack and blame everyone but the terrorists is nothing more than a cover-up which has led many to assume that the Administration was somehow involved in this atrocity. Others have, ridiculously in my opinion, blamed the Romney/Ryan camp going so far as to claim they orchestrated this to destroy Obama as a GOP October Surprise which completely ignores this President’s role in advancing al Qaeda in the Middle East. It ignores his deliberate alliance in placing advocates for the radical elements of Muslim extremism within his own cabinet fueled by a growing number of socialist/communist leaders in American government.
The President is enabled in his accomplishments by The Congressional Progressive Caucus which was founded in 1991 by Bernie Sanders-the openly socialist then Congressman from Vermont, Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and the radical Washington DC based “think tank” Institute for Policy Studies (IPS). Many members were and continue to be linked to DSA and/or the Communist Party USA, IPS or other radical organizations. The Communist Party USA identifies Progressive Caucus members as its “allies in Congress.” From small beginnings the CPC has grown to embrace more than 80 members of Congress and three in the Senate – Roland Burris, Bernie Sanders and Tom Udall (NM).
For the two years prior to Obama taking office, this Caucus was the majority Caucus in policy making and decisions that paved the way for universal healthcare.
Another of Obama’s ideological mentors, Saul Alinsky believed that ends not only justify the means but failure to use any means necessary is a sin. Check out this excerpt from his book, Rules for Radicals:
“The end is what you want, the means is how you get it. Whenever we think about social change, the question of means and ends arises. The man of action views the issue of means and ends in pragmatic and strategic terms. He has no other problem; he thinks only of his actual resources and the possibilities of various choices of action. He asks of ends only whether they are achievable and worth the cost; of means, only whether they will work. … The real arena is corrupt and bloody.” p.24
Consider the real agenda behind Fast and Furious – putting guns into the hands of bad guys, who would use them to kill innocent people. Consider Obama’s role in the spread and empowerment of terrorism and the support from Communist allied organizations that include many of the most powerful Labor Unions in America.
President Barack Obama‘s Labor Secretary Hilda Solis has an history with both the Communist Party USA and Democratic Socialists of America. She praised in glowing terms Dolores Huerta, a socialist co-founder of the United Farm Workers, whom she called “my teacher, my role model, and mi hermana,” a “living legend.” Huerta is also honorary co-chair of the Democratic Socialists of America, and has praised Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez in glowing terms in front of high school students.
The President is also enabled by Progressive members of the Republican Party who have rubber stamped his most radical appointments and continually refuse to hold him accountable for crimes against our country and the promotion of an ideology foreign and incompatible with the founding principles of our nation.
This election is not just about getting rid of Obama, this election is about removing those most extreme radical anti-American elements from his cabinet of advisors. If we are to return to Constitutional Principles, principles from which we have radically strayed, it will require a series of transitional steps if we are to prevent violent revolution in America. It will require a people who are willing to stand firm in this transition and leave no elected official unaccountable for their violations of constitutional principles and values. That, of course, will require an understanding of the Founders Vision for America, in their own words.
In closing perhaps we need to hear the words of Ronald Reagan once again who said:
There can be no real peace while one American is dying some place in the world for the rest of us. We’re at war with the most dangerous enemy that has ever faced mankind in his long climb from the swamp to the stars, and it’s been said if we lose that war, and in so doing lose this way of freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening. Well I think it’s time we ask ourselves if we still know the freedoms that were intended for us by the Founding Fathers.
Not too long ago, two friends of mine were talking to a Cuban refugee, a businessman who had escaped from Castro, and in the midst of his story one of my friends turned to the other and said, “We don’t know how lucky we are.” And the Cuban stopped and said, “How lucky you are? I had someplace to escape to.” And in that sentence he told us the entire story. If we lose freedom here, there’s no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.
Those who would trade our freedom for the soup kitchen of the welfare state have told us they have a utopian solution of peace without victory. They call their policy “accommodation.” And they say if we’ll only avoid any direct confrontation with the enemy, he’ll forget his evil ways and learn to love us. All who oppose them are indicted as warmongers. They say we offer simple answers to complex problems. Well, perhaps there is a simple answer—not an easy answer—but simple: If you and I have the courage to tell our elected officials that we want our national policy based on what we know in our hearts is morally right.
We cannot buy our security, our freedom from the threat of the bomb by committing an immorality so great as saying to a billion human beings now enslaved behind the Iron Curtain, “Give up your dreams of freedom because to save our own skins, we’re willing to make a deal with your slave masters.” Alexander Hamilton said, “A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one.” Now let’s set the record straight. There’s no argument over the choice between peace and war, but there’s only one guaranteed way you can have peace—and you can have it in the next second—surrender.
Admittedly, there’s a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson of history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face—that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight or surrender. If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, eventually we have to face the final demand—the ultimatum. And what then—when Nikita Khrushchev has told his people he knows what our answer will be? He has told them that we’re retreating under the pressure of the Cold War, and someday when the time comes to deliver the final ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary, because by that time we will have been weakened from within spiritually, morally, and economically. He believes this because from our side he’s heard voices pleading for “peace at any price” or “better Red than dead,” or as one commentator put it, he’d rather “live on his knees than die on his feet.” And therein lies the road to war, because those voices don’t speak for the rest of us.
You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin—just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard ’round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn’t die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace? Well it’s a simple answer after all.
You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, “There is a price we will not pay.” “There is a point beyond which they must not advance.” And this—this is the meaning in the phrase “peace through strength.” Winston Churchill said, “The destiny of man is not measured by material computations. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we’re spirits—not animals.” And he said, “There’s something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.”
You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.
We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.
