Save America; Get Outraged

Save America; Get Outraged

April 8th, 2011

Don Feder, GrassTopsUSA.com

Where’s the outrage?
Given what Barack Obama is doing to the Constitution, the economy and our
future, the American people should be up in arms (metaphorically speaking, civility-hysterics
take note). Citizens should be marching on Washington with pitchforks and
flaming brands in hand (also a metaphor).
Every city should see demonstrations to make the most raucous Tea Party rally
look like Sunday night in Pierre, South Dakota.
Instead, it’s a mental fog as usual. Hey, the unemployment rate is now
(barely) below 9 percent! Wasn’t that a cold winter? Gee, I wonder what zany,
drug-induced thing Charlie
Sheen
will do next?
So, while America burns, we fiddle with our iPhones and talk about the
upcoming HBO series about vampire bootleggers and Borgias duking it out in
Camelot.
Other than Tea Party activists, the public seems supremely unperturbed by
Obama’s relentless assault on America. The president’s March 21-27 approval
rating was 45 percent. At the same point in their first terms, Clinton’s
approval rating was only three points higher – Reagan’s three points lower. Both
were re-elected, you may recall.
It’s true that since Obama occupied the White House, his
party’s stock
has taken
a nose-dive
– a net
loss
of 9 governorships, 7 Senate seats, and 60 House seats. But there’s no
guarantee that trend will continue.
The leader of the party that whines incessantly about the influence of money
in politics has announced he’ll spend $1 billion to win re-election….

Obama Asks Terrorism Help — from Muslim Brotherhood Spinoff

Obama Asks Terrorism Help — from Muslim Brotherhood
Spinoff

March 7th, 2011

Ben Johnson, FloydReports.com
As more sober
minds consider ways to keep
the Middle East from falling into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood
,
Barack Obama is “fighting terrorism” by reaching out to the leader of one of the
Brotherhood’s American creations. In the process, a White House official
revealed that radical Muslims frequently advise the White House office headed by
the president’s top adviser and alter ego, Valerie Jarrett.
Preemptive Groveling
Flush with instances of American Muslims supporting Islamic jihad,
Rep. Peter King is set to launch his investigation into the radicalization of
U.S. mosques, imams, and the faithful they serve later
this week
. Barack Obama, ever keen to reach out to the Muslim
community
, decided to get ahead of this by sending a deputy to plead with
the extremists for cooperation. On Sunday, Deputy National Security Advisor
Denis McDonough spoke
to a Sterling, Virginia, mosque
some believe is a model of moderate Islam:
the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS), led by imam Mohamed Magid. Indeed,
McDonough began by thanking Magid by name.
Although the Sudanese-born imam presents himself as an ecumenical,
anti-terrorism leader active in “interfaith” outreach, his current associations
— and those of others at his mosque — present a different picture.
A Dangerous Mosque

This author exposed
ADAMS’s radical connections nearly seven years
. At the time, ADAMS’s
chairman was Ahmad Totonji, an Iraqi-born citizen of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia
who was named as a
defendant
in a $1 trillion lawsuit filed by more than 600 relatives of
people who died in the 9/11 attacks. He served as Vice President of the Safa
Group and the International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT), which
officials have linked to al-Qaeda,
Palestinian
Islamic Jihad
, and Sami al-Arian.
(Al-Arian served more than five years in prison after pleading guilty to
conspiracy to aid terrorism, and he is currently under house arrest awaiting his
contempt trial, which has been mysteriously
stalled
.) ADAMS’s legal counsel, Muhammed Ashraf, was the attorney for
Abdurahman Alamoudi, who is now serving 23 years in prison for laundering
money for Muammar Qaddafi
in a plot to kill a Saudi prince.
Magid was on the premises of ADAMS’s Herndon, Virginia, offices when federal
agents stormed the facility in March 2002. The “Grove Street Addresses” provided
the homes of more than 100 interlocking Muslim organizations that the government
accused of providing material support for terrorism. After the raid, Magid
assembled a “community building” meeting at ADAMS attended by a variety of
extremists.

Somehow, this record got Magid invited

Obama is Secretly Talking with the Taliban, Says It’s What Reagan Would Do

Obama is Secretly Talking with the Taliban, Says It’s What Reagan
Would Do

February 22nd, 2011

Ben Johnson, FloydReports.com

With Islamic
riots
, skyrocketing deficits, and state-skipping Democratic legislators
hogging the headlines, this item has not yet gotten the attention it deserves.
Steve Coll writes
in The New Yorker
, “The Obama Administration has entered into
direct, secret talks with senior Afghan Taliban leaders, several people briefed
about the talks told me last week.” Obama mentioned reaching
out to “Taliban moderates” in 2009
, only to drop the idea after public
backlash. Apparently, the Obama administration has decided now is the
time it wishes to look weak, hopeless, and pathetic.
Hillary Clinton detailed the American stance before a meeting of the Asia
Society recently. She emphasized that if the Taliban returned to its history of
repression and terror incubation, it would risk being branded “an enemy of the
international community.” Mullah Omar and his buddies must be shaking in their
turbans.
Hillary tried to calm the situation, saying, “I know that reconciling with an
adversary that can be as brutal as the Taliban sounds distasteful, even
unimaginable.” But she insisted, this is what Reagan would do.
She attributed her policy to Ronald Reagan and Richard Holbrooke. The lesson
she and Obama learned from The Gipper is….

Obama’s Homeland Security Dept. Promotes Al Jazeera

Obama’s Homeland Security Dept. Promotes Al
Jazeera

February 16th, 2011

Ben Johnson, FloydReports.com

National security has fallen so far under Barack Obama that a high-ranking
official in the Department of Homeland Security is berating American cable
companies for not carrying Osama bin Laden’s favorite television network.
Juliette Kayyem,
the assistant secretary for intergovernmental affairs at the DHS, wrote an op-ed
in the Boston Globe this week entitled, “Let
US See Al-Jazeera.”
(Capitalization in original.) In it, she rakes ign’ernt
Americans over the coals for not appreciating Al Jazeera English (AJE), the
Anglophone counterpart to Al-Jazeera. Kayyem writes that cable providers should
be “promoting engagement in the Arab world” by “bringing a major player in the
Arab world to American audiences.”
Typical of the Obama administration’s approach to all forms of conflict,
Kayyem wants America to step aside, promote Islamic interests, and hope our
enemies will reciprocate our selfless acts of goodwill. In this case, she wants
a major Islamic fundamentalist propaganda outlet beamed into 300 million infidel
homes. “AJE’s battle with the cable carriers is major news in the Middle East,”
she writes. Not carrying the network “sends a message to the Arab world.”
Although she reassures her readers, “Cable companies have no obligation to run
programming,” she warns that shunning AJE is “understood by the Arab world as a
value-laden decision about America’s lack of desire to hear from the Arab world
about the Arab world.”
There is the little matter of the Al-Jazeera’s famously close relationship
with terrorists and long history of….

Obama Gives Green Light to the Muslim Brotherhood

Obama Gives Green Light to the Muslim
Brotherhood

February 3rd, 2011

Craig Whitlock, The Washington Post

As it braces for the likelihood of a new ruler in Egypt, the U.S. government
is rapidly reassessing its tenuous relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood, an
opposition movement whose fundamentalist ideology has long been a source of
distrust in Washington.
Although the group has played a secondary role in the swelling protests that
are threatening to topple President Hosni Mubarak, U.S. officials have
acknowledged the political reality that the Muslim Brotherhood is poised to
assume at least a share of power should Egypt hold free and fair elections in
the coming months.
On Monday, in what analysts said was a clear reference to the Brotherhood,
the White House said a new government in Egypt should “include a whole host of
important non-secular actors.”
The move drew the skepticism of some U.S. officials who have argued that the
White House should embrace opposition groups that are more likely to support a
democratic government in Egypt, rather than one dedicated to the establishment
of religious law…
Members of the movement are often vague about their political goals. In an
interview this week with the BBC, Kamal el-Helbawy, a Muslim Brotherhood leader
in exile in Britain, said the group wants “freedom, consultation, equality,
freedom of everything.”
He ducked questions, however, about whether an Egyptian government led by the
Brotherhood would guarantee equal rights for other religious groups – such as
Egypt’s Coptic Christians – and women. When asked whether all women would be
required to wear veils, he said, “not necessarily.”
…Analysts said the movement strives in public to play down concerns about its
agenda, partly for self-preservation. By presenting itself as a moderate group
that would embrace a multi-party democracy, it seeks to preempt worries about
its goals, said Emad Shahin, an Egyptian American scholar at the University of
Notre Dame.
“They don’t want to be seen as taking part in an uprising or upheaval that
seeks to establish an Iranian-type government,” he said. “They need to shield
themselves behind a broader opposition front.”

Egypt now fears Obama a ‘Manchurian President’

Egypt now fears Obama a ‘Manchurian President’

‘They are trying to understand why he is acting against U.S.
interests’

LISBON, PORTUGAL - NOVEMBER 20: U.S. President Barack Obama speaks to the media during a press conference on day two of the NATO summit at Feira Internacional de Lisboa (FIL) on November 20, 2010 in Lisbon, Portugal. The two day summit will address issues including a new strategic concept for NATO. Britain and the US will also seek an agreement to hand over responsibility for security in Afghanistan to local forces over the next four years. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
Top members of the Egyptian government say they feel betrayed by President
Obama, charging that he is acting against American interests.
“Mubarak’s regime feels Obama is pushing the advancement of the Muslim
Brotherhood against U.S. interests,” said WND’s Jerusalem bureau chief and
senior reporter Aaron Klein. “They are genuinely trying to understand why Obama
is seemingly championing the anti-regime protests.”
Klein said that a top Egyptian diplomat with whom he has developed a rapport
over the last few years asked him earlier this week to explain Obama’s
motivation to support the opposition to Mubarak.
“I told him none of this should be a surprise,” said Klein, “that the Obama
administration has developed an extensive relationship over the last few years
with allies of the Muslim Brotherhood.
“That my investigating has proven that Obama has been closely associated
throughout his political career with radical-left elements who have long
petitioned for policies many believe are aimed at weakening the American
enterprise both domestically and internationally.”
“The Egyptian diplomat seemed surprised,” said Klein. “I told him this
material was thoroughly documented in my latest book.”
The diplomat requested 20 copies of Klein’s New York Times bestselling book
investigating Obama, “The
Manchurian President: Barack Obama’s ties to communists, socialists, and other
anti-American extremists.”
The diplomat said he would deliver the book, which was co-authored by Brenda
J. Elliott, to senior officials in Mubarak’s embattled government.
Obama in recent days urged Mubarak to give up power in Egypt, where the
Muslim Brotherhood forms the main opposition.
Mubarak has been a staunch U.S. ally and a recipient of billions of dollars
in military aid. His regime has long been considered a stabilizing force in the
Arab world.
The Obama administration’s support for the unrest is strikingly reminiscent
of Jimmy Carter’s support of the Islamic revolution in Iran in 1979, which
marked the birth of modern Islamist expansion.
(Story continues below)
Some Muslim clerics are already calling the riots in Egypt simply an
extension of 1979’s Islamist conquests.
“Thirty-one years after the victory of the Islamic Republic, we are faced
with the obvious fact that these movements are the aftershocks of the Islamic
revolution,” said Iranian cleric Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, as reported by Iran’s
Radio Zamaneh. “The fate of those who challenge [our] religion is destruction.”
Speaking of media and government leaders, Khatami added, “They want to
highlight the labor, liberal and democratic issues, but the most important
issue, which is the religious streak of these protests, [is] being denied.”
The leader of Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood, Hammam Saeed, warned that the
unrest in Egypt will spread across the Mideast until Arabs succeed at toppling
leaders allied with the United States.
“The Americans and Obama must be losing sleep over the popular revolt in
Egypt,” Saeed said at a sympathy protest held outside the Egyptian Embassy in
Amman. “Now, Obama must understand that the people have woken up and are ready
to unseat the tyrant leaders who remained in power because of U.S. backing.”
And on the Internet, the Middle East Media Research Institute reports,
prominent Salafi cleric Abu Mundhir Al-Shinqiti issued a fatwa on the website
Minbar Al-Tawhid Wal Jihad encouraging the protests in Egypt, claiming Islamist
jihadis are now on the verge of a historic moment, an “earthquake” he likened to
the Sept. 11 attacks in New York City.
Obama pushes Egyptian ‘reform’
According to a senior Egyptian diplomat speaking to WND, a former U.S.
ambassador to Egypt, Frank Wisner, specifically told Mubarak on Tuesday the U.S.
would not continue to support his rule and he must step down.
Hours later, Mubarak announced he would not seek another term in office.
The Obama administration dispatched Wisner to Egypt last weekend to report to
the State Department and White House a general sense of the situation in the
country.
WND broke the story yesterday
that the Egyptian government has information Wisner secretly met earlier this
week with a senior leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Issam El-Erian.
The Muslim Brotherhood seeks to spread Islam around the world, in large part
using nonviolent means. Hamas and al-Qaida are violent Brotherhood offshoots.
Muslim Brotherhood declares war on U.S.
Prominent U.S. commentators also have been claiming the Muslim Brotherhood is
a moderate organization and denying there is any Islamist plot to seize power.
Last Friday, President George W. Bush’s former press spokeswoman, Dana
Perino, told Fox News, “Don’t be afraid of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. This
has nothing to do with religion.”
Bruce Reidel, a former CIA analyst and adviser to President Obama, wrote a
Daily Beast article in which he claimed, “The Egyptian Brotherhood renounced
violence years ago. … Its relative moderation has made it the target of extreme
vilification by more radical Islamists.”
Reidel’s assertion the Brotherhood renounced violence, however, is
contradicted by its own statements in recent months, including a call to arms
against the West.
In November, the Brotherhood’s new supreme guide, Muhammad Badi, delivered a
sermon entitled “How Islam Confronts the Oppression and Tyranny.”
“Resistance is the only solution,” stated Badi. “The United States cannot
impose an agreement upon the Palestinians, despite all the power at its
disposal. [Today] it is withdrawing from Iraq, defeated and wounded, and is also
on the verge of withdrawing from Afghanistan because it has been defeated by
Islamist warriors.”
Badi went on to declare the U.S. is easy to defeat through violence, since it
is “experiencing the beginning of its end and is heading toward its demise.”
Barry Rubin, director of the Global Research in International Affairs Center,
noted Badi’s speech showed “the likelihood that more Brotherhood supporters in
the West will turn to violence and fund-raising for terrorism.”
Frank Gaffney, president of the American Center for Security Policy, takes it
a step further.
“In short, the Muslim Brotherhood – whether it is operating in Egypt,
elsewhere in the world or here – is our enemy,” he wrote.
Obama quietly builds ties to Muslim Brotherhood
Klein
reported for WND yesterday
that Obama and top administration officials have
troubling relationships with the Muslim Brotherhood and its worldwide allies.
Muslim Brotherhood members were reportedly invited to attend Obama’s 2009
address to the Muslim world from Cairo. Khaled Hamza, editor of the Muslim
Brotherhood website, confirmed at the time that 10 members of the Brotherhood’s
parliamentary bloc received official invitations to attend Obama’s historic
speech.
Also in 2009, the Egyptian daily newspaper Almasry Alyoum ran a report
claiming Obama had met with U.S. and European-based representatives of Egypt’s
Muslim Brotherhood that year
According to the report, the Brotherhood members requested that news of the
meeting not be publicized. They expressed to Obama their support for democracy
and the war on terror.
The newspaper also reported Brotherhood members communicated to Obama their
position that they would abide by all agreements Egypt has signed with foreign
countries, implying that if they took power in Egypt they would continue that
country’s peace treaty with Israel.
Besides contact with the Muslim Brotherhood itself, there have been reports
the past two years of behind-the-scenes contact with Hamas, which was founded as
an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hamas maintains a close alliance with the
Brotherhood; the Brotherhood’s new leader, Muhammad Badi, serves as a de facto
lead spiritual guide for Hamas.
Top leaders of Hamas in Gaza claimed to WND several times they passed
messages to Obama through dignitaries who visited the Gaza Strip, including
Jimmy Carter and Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., – both of whom have a close
relationship with the White House.
Kerry, for example, reportedly accepted a letter for Obama from Hamas leaders
in Gaza during a February 2009 visit to U.N. installations in the coastal
territory.
U.N. relief agency chief in Gaza Karen Abu Zayd told the BBC the Hamas letter
had been received by his agency and passed on to an unnamed American official.
Immediately after that month’s elections, Ahmed Yousef , Hamas’ chief
political adviser in Gaza, called Obama’s win a “historic victory” for the world
and told WND that Hamas was sending a letter of congratulation to the
president-elect.
Obama ties to Brotherhood’s U.S. allies
It is not just Obama’s reported contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood and the
group’s allies in the Middle East that are of concern.
The Obama administration also has evidenced a working relationship with
several U.S.-based Islamist organizations that are listed by the Brotherhood as
“likeminded” organizations.
One such group is the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA, a radical
Muslim group that was an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme to raise money
for Hamas.
ISNA was named in a May 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document – “An Explanatory
Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America” – as
one of the Brotherhood’s likeminded “organizations of our friends” who shared
the common goal of transforming countries into Muslim nations.
The White House relationship with ISNA began even before Obama took office.
One week before the presidential inauguration, Sayyid Syeed, national director
of the ISNA Office for Interfaith and Community Alliances, was part of a
delegation that met with the directors of Obama’s transition team. The
delegation discussed a request for an executive order ending “torture.”
ISNA President Ingrid Mattson represented American Muslims at Obama’s
inauguration, where she offered a prayer during the televised event.
Mattson also has represented ISNA at Obama’s annual Ramadan dinners,
including the last such event in which Obama announced support for the rights of
Muslims to build an Islamic cultural center and mosque two blocks from the site
of the 9/11 attacks.
In June 2009, Obama’s top aide, Valerie Jarrett, invited Mattson to work on
the White House Council on Women and Girls, which Jarrett leads.
That July, the Justice Department sponsored an information booth at an ISNA
bazaar in Washington, D.C.
Also that month, Jarrett addressed ISNA’s 46th annual convention. According
to the White House, Jarrett attended as part of Obama’s outreach to Muslims.
ISNA sponsored a February 2010 question-and-answer session in which Obama’s
top adviser on counter-terrorism, John Brennan, came under fire for
controversial remarks to Muslim law students.

Talk Show Host: Obama Could be Impeached over Egypt

Talk Show Host: Obama Could be Impeached over
Egypt

February 2nd, 2011

Ben Johnson, FloydReports.com

A nationally syndicated radio talk show host has called for Barack Obama to
be impeached if he is secretly pushing
Egypt to become an Islamist country
ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood. Tammy Bruce called for Rep. Darrell Issa to
investigate whether the Obama administration is helping the radical Islamic
fundamentalist organization rise to power after the departure of Egyptian
President Hosni Mubarak. Media reports indicate a member of the Obama
administration has met with the Muslim Brotherhood,
and the United States may have supported
a plan to take down Mubarak
since at least 2008. “If it is found that Obama
secretly facilitated or *encouraged* an Islamist takeover of Egypt, an ally, he
should be impeached,” Bruce wrote.
Her call came in the form of four separate tweets,
which she posted
