HUMA ABEDIN’S MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD BACKGROUND

Saturday, October 29th, 2016

 

We have all heard the news today regarding the FBI reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails because of “thousands” of emails they have discovered while investigating Anthony Weiner in his sexting scandal with an underage 15 year old girl.   As many of you know, Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin, Hillary’s chief aide, are married (separated since  his most recent sexting scandal broke several months ago).These emails must have some highly sensitive or secret information in them for the FBI to go to the extreme measure of reopening Hillary’s email investigation.  During the original investigation numerous emails were discovered in Hillary’s emails that were classified SAP (Special Access Programs)  dailycaller.com/2016/01/19/report-emails-at-the-highest-classification-levels-found-on-hillarys-private-server/  SAP’s contain information on ongoing covert operations and operators which, if disclosed, endanger the lives of those who are working “under cover” and compromise ongoing operations. 
The news has been non stop since it broke this afternoon.  What the media (even Fox), is not mentioning is the  fact   that Hillary’s chief aide, Huma Abedin, is a Muslim and both her mother and father have high positions in the Muslim Brotherhood and are actively involved in a Islamic magazine that promotes Sharia Law throughout the world.  Huma, herself, was an associate editor  of this same magazine. 
Why should it  matter that Huma,who handles highly sensitive information as Hillary’s closest aide, has a questionable  family background?  That information   should   be known to the American public but no one in the media is daring to mention the fact.  Dare I say “political correctness” or not wanting to “offend” Islam.

MICHELE BACHMANN TARGETED FOR ‘UGLY ISLAMOPHOBIC FEAR MONGERING’

New Campaign Against Rep. Bachmann for

Anti-Brotherhood Stance

People for the American Way (PFAW) has launched a new campaign against Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN), who, after her recent re-election to Congress, has been re-appointed to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI).

A PFAW-sponsored petition with 178,000 signatures is to be presented to House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) on Monday 21 January 2012 to protest Bachmann’s HPSCI appointment.

Citing what PFAW calls “ugly Islamophobic fear mongering,” the petition decries what it alleges are Bachmann’s “unfounded and irresponsible attacks on dedicated public servants.”

Although it does not say so specifically, the PFAW petition likely refers to a set of letters signed by Rep. Bachmann and four Congressional colleagues – Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Trent Franks (R-AZ), Tom Rooney (R-FL) and Lynn Westmorland (R-GA).

The letters were sent in June 2012 to the inspectors general of the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Justice and State and the Office of the Director of National Security (ODNI). The letters note that U.S. foreign policy has undergone a dramatic shift in the direction of open support for the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood to power across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and question whether that policy shift may be the result of Brotherhood influence operations.

BRENT BOZELL – LOATHING CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN CANDIDATES

Friday, December 9th, 2011

By Brent Bozell

12/7/2011

Time magazine didn’t mind ruffling feathers in religious America with a cover this summer that asked “Is Hell Dead?” Never mind that America is overwhelmingly Christian. Then Time found only one letter worth plucking out to feature in large, bold type from a man in Dallas: “Hell is easy to define. It would be spending eternity with evangelicals.”

That sums up the secular, liberal media attitude toward America’s Christian majority, and it explains why they find Republicans so objectionable when they make their religious faith part of their campaign for the presidency. Matthew Philbin and Erin Brown of the Media Research Center’s Culture and Media Institute have written a new report called “Baptism By Fire” that analyzes coverage of the presidential candidates and their religious faith. Does it surprise anyone that they found a huge difference in coverage of Republicans and Democrats?

In the first ten months of 2011, network morning and evening news stories mentioned the religious faith of GOP presidential challengers more than seven times as often (143 stories to 19 stories) than they had for Democratic challengers in the first ten months of 2007. They’ve been 13 times more likely to be critical of the Republicans’ religious beliefs than they were of Democrats just four years ago.

Did I mention Rev. Jeremiah Wright? In the first ten months of 2007, there were just six instances where stories challenged or negatively highlighted the faith of liberal White House hopefuls. The networks almost entirely avoided questions about Barack Obama’s upbringing in a Muslim country and his two decades of attendance of a radical Chicago church. Likewise, audiences were reassured that Hillary Clinton’s faith was important — but only as it saw her through her husband’s reckless infidelities. Primary candidates Joe Biden and Chris Dodd were never asked about their fervent voting record in favor of abortion — even partial-birth abortion — in full opposition to their Catholic faith.

OUR UN-PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES

Friday, October 28th, 2011
The Wall Street Journal

  • OCTOBER 27, 2011, 4:37 P.M. ET

Michael Vick went to prison for staging dogfights, but for presidential debates, it’s legal.

  • By DANIEL HENNINGER

    Politics, like any guilty pleasure, breeds nightmares. One of late is that we’ll soon elect an American president based mostly on what people know from reading Yahoo! headlines and the three lines below them.

    The nightmare got worse. The Yahoo! headlines started to look like a deep dive after Twitter’s 140-character tweets started to define the political debate.

    This being politics, it got worse yet. After watching umpteen debates, it looks as if the Republican Party may choose someone to run for the presidency of the United States based on who can explain the world and all its troubles in 30 seconds.

    The TV debates create buzz and interest, and that’s good. But most people don’t eat seven appetizers and call it a meal. The debates are producing half-baked versions of candidates running for the presidency.

    Did I say candidates? I misspoke. The U.S. has a long tradition of fringe candidates like Dennis Kucinich or Ron Paul, but no previous system forced us to endure them once the laughing stopped. Two debates ago, I started surfing over to ESPN whenever Ron Paul talks. Yeah, let Iran have its own bomb. (more…)

    WHAT MICHELE BACHMANN SHOULD HAVE SAID ABOUT SLAVERY

    Tuesday, July 19th, 2011
    The Wall Street Journal

    • JULY 16, 2011

    The Founding Fathers knew that ending this evil was their great unfinished business.

    EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:

    At the same time, the Founding Fathers well recognized the serious problem of slavery. George Washington ignored protests from some Southerners and accepted both free and enslaved blacks in his army. In the final years of the war, one in every seven soldiers in his ranks was black. This experience, and his discussions with the idealistic young French volunteer, the Marquis de Lafayette, convinced Washington that slavery was incompatible with American liberty. “There is not a man living,” he wrote to a friend in 1786, “who wishes more sincerely than I do to see a plan adopted for [its] gradual abolition.”

    Congresswoman and presidential candidate Michele Bachmann created a stir recently by insisting on television that America’s Founding Fathers “worked day and night” to abolish slavery. When asked to identify one of them and say what he did on behalf of this noble cause, the only name she produced was John Quincy Adams. He was all of 9 years old when his father, John Adams, persuaded the Continental Congress to vote for independence in 1776.

    Ms. Bachmann’s historical gaffe notwithstanding, there is surely a legitimate question here: Was slavery a day and night preoccupation of America’s top leaders during the founding era—1775 to 1800? Dismaying as it may be to many admirers of our revolutionary past, the correct response is: no.

    Survival was the issue that preoccupied the Founders and their followers during the eight-year struggle against imperial Britain’s mighty fleet and army. When victory dawned in the 1780s, a new worry became paramount. Gen. George Washington summed it up in a terse sentence in a letter to another Virginian: “I see one head gradually turning into thirteen.”

    The divisions and quarrels between the 13 former colonies were making the future of the new nation a very dubious proposition. The cost of the Revolutionary War had reduced the Continental Congress under the Articles of Confederation to an often derisive joke. Without the power to tax, its paper money deteriorated into worthlessness. A bankrupt Congress could not persuade, much less coerce, any state to do anything it regarded as not in its best interest.

    At the same time, the Founding Fathers well recognized the serious problem of slavery. George Washington ignored protests from some Southerners and accepted both free and enslaved blacks in his army. In the final years of the war, one in every seven soldiers in his ranks was black. This experience, and his discussions with the idealistic young French volunteer, the Marquis de Lafayette, convinced Washington that slavery was incompatible with American liberty. “There is not a man living,” he wrote to a friend in 1786, “who wishes more sincerely than I do to see a plan adopted for [its] gradual abolition.”

    MICHELE BACHMANN – QUEEN OF THE TEA PARTY

    Thursday, July 7th, 2011
    Published on The Weekly Standard (www.weeklystandard.com)

    Queen of the Tea Party

    The presidential campaign of Michele Bachmann

    Matthew Continetti

    July 4 – July 11, 2011, Vol. 16, No. 40

    If she’d fallen backward, she’d have been killed. It was September 2009, during her second term in Congress, and a magazine had sent a photographer to shoot Michele Bachmann. He escorted her to the third floor rotunda in the Cannon House Office Building on Capitol Hill, where he positioned a large orange crate next to the balustrade. He told her to stand on it. She reluctantly obliged. Behind her were three stories of empty air.

    The magazine had also sent a videographer, who wanted Bachmann to gesture ecstatically for the camera. “And I said, ‘That’s not what I do,’ ” Bachmann remembered during a recent interview at her temporary campaign headquarters in downtown Washington. “ ‘I’m a serious member of Congress.’ ” So she got off the crate. The photo shoot soon ended, and the pictures were never published. “I think they didn’t get what they wanted,” Bachmann said. “They wanted this freak caricature.”

    We were speaking a few days after Bachmann’s well-received performance at a Republican primary debate in Goffstown, New Hampshire, on June 13. Bachmann’s poise and deft answers, and her announcement that she’d filed the paperwork to run for president, made her stand out from the other candidates. Perhaps the caricature has begun to fade.

    Energetic, charismatic, intelligent, and attractive, the 55-year-old Bachmann is no stranger to publicity. Since she arrived on the national scene in 2007, her prominence in the conservative movement has skyrocketed. In the world of talk radio and cable news, she possesses something like Most Favored Guest status. She plays the outside game, using media appearances to further the right’s agenda. She’s been featured in calendars of female conservative superstars. There’s even a Michele Bachmann action figure. (more…)

    BACHMANN LIVED ON KIBBUTZ, STAUNCHLY PRO-ISRAEL

    Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

    NEWSMAX.COM

    Friday, 01 Jul 2011
    By Jim Meyers
    For Rep. Michele Bachmann, staunch support for Israel is a personal matter: Teenage Bachmann spent a summer working on a kibbutz in Israel.

    Michele Bachmann, Israel, kibbutzThe 55-year-old Minnesota Republican, founder of the House Tea Party Caucus and a candidate for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, went to Israel in 1974, immediately after graduating from high school. Her mission was sponsored by Young Life, a Christian ministry.

    “I always had this love and appreciation for Israel because I was a Christian,” Bachmann, who was raised as a Lutheran, said in an interview with Matthew Continetti, opinion editor of The Weekly Standard. “It’s the foundation of our faith. All of the Bible is about Israel.”

    The Israel she found in 1974 was “pretty grubby,” she recalled — brutal heat, soldiers with guns at the airport, customs officers at card tables on the tarmac, chickens everywhere.

    The youth housing where Bachmann — then Michele Amble — lived on the kibbutz was called the ghetto. Lizards climbed the walls. She rose at 4 a.m. and rode to work on a flatbed truck pulled by an old diesel tractor. Her job: pulling weeds from cotton fields.

    Soldiers escorted the workers everywhere, searching for mines. “You’re hoping at 4 o’clock in the morning that they see everything,” she told Continetti.

    The experience has never left Bachmann’s mind. “If you consider what it was like in 1948,” she said, “and literally watch flowers bloom in a desert over time — I don’t know if any nation has paralleled the rise of Israel since 1948.”

    Today, Bachmann is a member of Christians United for Israel and one of Israel’s strongest supporters in Congress. She has visited the Jewish state several times since taking office.

    One Jewish Minnesota Republican has told Continetti of speeches at local Republican Jewish Coalition events where Bachmann has brought cheering audiences to their feet.
