…….PATRIOTISM IS NOT AN ART. NATIONAL SECURITY IS NOT POLITICS.
Imagine Hillary Clinton’s thoughts on the recent evening stroll by some guys in Paris: “With all due respect, the fact is, we had
four seventeen dead Americans Parisians. Was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night who decide to kill some Americans cartoonists, what difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again…………..”
2013 Liberty Medal winner and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is considering a run for the Presidency of the United States in 2016. The Chairman of the National Constitution Center which honored her, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, himself considering a presidential bid, made these remarks at the ceremony:
“Former Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to serving and engaging people across the world in democracy,” said National Constitution Center Chairman Governor Jeb Bush. “These efforts as a citizen, an activist, and a leader have earned Secretary Clinton this year’s Liberty Medal.”
One of the people Clinton engaged across the world was Saleha Mahmood Abedin, whom she visited in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia during her tenure as Secretary of State and also spoke at Abedin’s college there.
Saleha Abedin is an influential founding member of the Muslim Sisterhood, a pro-Sharia entity composed of the wives of some of the highest-ranking leaders in the Muslim Brotherhood. A report by the Egyptian opposition newspaper Al-Liwa Al-Arabi says that these women are recruited to: “smuggle secret documents”; “spread the Brotherhood’s ideology by infiltrating universities, schools and homes”; “fulfill the interests of the Brotherhood”; and “organiz[e] projects which will penetrate [the Brotherhood’s] prohibited ideology into the decision-making in the West … under the guise of ‘general needs of women.’” One particularly noteworthy member of the Sisterhood is Nagla Ali Mahmoud, wife of Mohammed Morsi (the Islamist who was elected president of Egypt in June 2012).
Abedin’s daughter, Huma, is a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton, including during Clinton’s stint at Secretary of State.
Saleha Abedin’s daughter, Huma Abedin, worked at IMMA for 12 years (1996-2008) and is closely affiliated with Hillary Rodham Clinton. Saleha’s other daughter, Heba Abedin (formerly known as “Heba A. Khaled”), worked alongside Huma an assistant editor with JMMA, and continues in that role to this day. And Saleha’s son, Hassan Abedin, has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and is an associate editor of JMMA.
Jan. 11, 2015:
President Barack Obama will not join other world leaders at Sunday’s Paris march in tribute to the victims of this week’s Islamist attacks in France, a US official told AFP. “I want the people of France to know that the United States stands with you today, stands with you tomorrow,” Obama said Friday, following three days of bloodshed….
Sept. 25, 2012…Barack Obama:
During his address to the United Nations today in New York City, President Obama again blamed violent Islamic riots in the Middle East on a video….six times.
“In every country, there are those who find different religious beliefs threatening; in every culture, those who love freedom for themselves must ask how much they are willing to tolerate freedom for others.
That is what we saw play out the last two weeks, as a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity.
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
On July 27, seventeen leaders signed a letter expressing concern about criticism directed at Rep. Michelle Bachmann for requesting information from the Obama administration about possible links between the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, the U.S. intelligence community and the U.S. Departments of State and Justice.
The seventeen signers of the letter are:
David Barton, Founder & President, WallBuilders
Gary Bauer, President, American Values
Hon. J. Kenneth Blackwell, former U.S. Ambassador, U.N. Human Rights Council
Phil Burress, Chairman, Citizens for Community Values Action
T. Kenneth Cribb, former Domestic Advisor to President Reagan
James Dobson, Founder & President, FamilyTalk Radio

Edwin Meese III, former Attorney General of the United States
Star Parker, Founder & President, Center for Urban Renewal and Education
Tony Perkins, President, Family Research Council
Robert (Bob) Reccord, Executive Director, Council for National Policy

Washington, D.C. 20515
Dear Mr. Speaker:
We are writing to express our strong support for congressional efforts to illuminate and address the danger posed by influence operations mounted by the Muslim Brotherhood against government agencies. Our backgrounds in intelligence and law enforcement, as well as the statutory oath we have all taken to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, prompt us to urge you to ensure that thorough investigations are conducted into this threat.
…………….We urge you to acquaint yourself with the background and status of the Muslim Brotherhood’s civilization jihad in America. Should you do so, we are confident you will agree with us that the requests for formal inspector general investigations into this matter by Reps. Michele Bachmann, Louie Gohmert, Trent Franks, Lynn Westmoreland and Tom Rooney are both warranted and needed. Accordingly, we recommend that you task the various House committees of jurisdiction with both supporting the IG investigations already requested by your five colleagues, and conducting their own inquiries into this pressing matter.
Andrew C. McCarthy
Former Assistant U.S. Attorney
Department of Defense
Joseph E. Schmitz
Former Inspector General
Lieutenant General William G. Boykin
Former Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence
R. James Woolsey
Former Director of Central Intelligence
Lieutenant General Harry E. Soyster
Former Director, Defense Intelligence Agency
“A fresh start often requires change, and I believe that change should start with the election of a new Speaker,” wrote Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) on his Facebook page.
Change didn’t happen. Boehner was reelected by a margin of 216 votes out of 408 votes cast.
The revolt against the status quo yielded at least three representatives willing to challenge Boehner for the job. Taking up the effort were two Florida Republicans, Rep. Ted Yoho and Rep. Daniel Webster, and conservative stalwart Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas. Gohmert frequently appears at events hosted by the David Horowitz Freedom Center and was a featured speaker at the Freedom Center’s Restoration Weekend in 2014.
And so the possible petered out. Some say it wasn’t possible. Some say it wasn’t worth the turmoil. Some say those who gave it the old college try are to be championed. Some say more ‘politics’ should have been involved. Here’s what Rep. Jim Bridenstine said:
Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK), who was also a featured speaker at the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s Restoration Weekend in 2014, illuminated one of the primary examples of GOP straying. He released a statement explaining that Boehner and President Obama
crafted the CR/Omnibus, a $1.1 trillion spending bill which funded the government for 10 months and blocked our newest elected Republicans from advancing conservative policy and delivering on campaign promises. With this vote, Republicans gave away the best tool available to rein in our liberal activist President: the power of the purse.
