Obama’s Strange Love Affair
with the Muslim Brotherhood

PJ Media, by Roger L. Simon

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/20/2013 4:43:22 AM

It’s hard to fathom how or why our administration ever thought the Muslim Brotherhood saw democracy as other than a means to an end — and a particularly repellent one at that — in the first place. It’s not as if the MB is subtle. They have proclaimed who they are since their founding by Hasan al Banna in 1928 and have not wavered in any significant way since in their global jihadist goals. They have also been unstinting in their massive misogyny, homophobia and rigid support of Shariah law über alles (quite literally über alles, since the Brotherhood were —

There is a beautiful and VERY old monastery in Egypt called St. Catherine´s. It has some priceless art including one of my favorite icons of Christ, a copy of it is on my desk at home. I dread to wake up one day and find the mobs, stirred up by the MB, have destroyed it.

I am in a strange land where Juan Williams vociferously defends the Egyptian army and says the MB is a terrorist organization that must be defeated, and prominent Republicans are saying they must include the MB. Go Juan! Go Roger!

We must never forget: In “Audacity of Hope” he writes: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” The quote comes from page 261 of the paperback edition of “The Audacity of Hope.

It just doesn´t get any plainer than this...unless, of course, he throws the Muslims under the bus as he has all his other "friends."

Obama is the strangest man to ever inhabit the White House. From his boyhood claims to his Punahou classmates as being an "Indonesian Prince," and "Kenyan Royalty," to his belief as a twenty year old of the inevitability of a Marxist revolution in the US (as confirmed by Dr. Drew), to his general ignorance of this country´s history and geography, this man is the least qualified and psychologically most bizarre president ever. What substance he does possess, though, seems centered on Islam and on anti-Americanism. Stupid, strange man, an a very dangerous man. It will get worse if Hillary and Huma get the reigns of power.

Let´s not forget the Huma Abedin Weiner link of her family being high ups in the Muslim B-hood and Sis-hood. As the asst to Hillary as Sec of State, that allowed her access to many state secrets and there they are proudly inviting Huma´s mother and family members to speak at functions and the White House. When asked about this it doesn´t make any difference and they can´t recall. Ok, we see the loyalty of these people and it is repugnant and treasonous.

Most if not all of us see him as Roger Simon does. What has bamboozled me, though, is the number of sheep we have in this country willingly following him and supporting his "transformation" of the USA. I thought that by now we would see a surge against his takeover. A lot of people have lost their ability to think objectively and to reason. They think they are the "enlightened ones," living in a secular dreamworld where anything goes as long as they can sit back, get freebies, and do whatever they want to the rest of us. We have a ruling class now. But when trouble comes, who will they run to? They´re destroying the lives and institutions of the very people who would help them.

Obama appointed Arif Alikhan, the deputy mayor of Los Angeles, as assistant secretary for policy development at the Department of Homeland Security. While Alikhan was deputy mayor of Los Angeles, he blocked a Los Angeles Police Department project to assemble data about the ethnic makeup of mosques in the Los Angeles area. Alikhan and other Muslim leaders said that the project manifested racism and “Islamophobia,” and the LAPD ultimately discarded all plans to study the mosques.
The Muslim Brotherhood is a pro-Sharia group. Obama’s chief adviser on Islamic affairs, Dalia Mogahed, is a pro-Sharia Muslim. Muslims who wanted Sharia rule, hated America , supported jihad-martyrdom suicide bombing, and opposed equality of rights for women. Mogahed also defended Sharia on a British TV show.
Sharia and Democracy will not ever get along and co-exist.
We have a pro sharia muslim in the WH.

We´re distracted by whats happening in Egypt...and that´s not to say its not important to keep our eye on whats going on there...but people we have GOT to keep an Eagle Eye on how the MB has been infiltrating HERE. Look at whats going on in Tennessee, and Kansas...Common Core Cirriculum and the number of mosques that are springing up.

LOOK AT WHO OWNS THE MEDIA CORPORATIONS. WHERE DO THEY GET THEIR MONEY FROM?

And if you think Texas is ´safe´...THINK AGAIN. There are a number of islamic groups here in my state that are doing what they can...and all the da ym yankees who move here bringing their failed policies to undermine Texas conservativism are going to help them out. Islam is working HARD to make us look like what is going on in Europe now.

GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT ISLAM. It is an evil pernicious and insidious ideology, NOT a religion. And we´re not going to get help from Washington because of who we have in the WH. Its time to face up to the fact that the war has been going on for some time and we´ve been playing around and pretending things will work the same way they did 20 years ago.

Although I agree and voted for #12, in this country we don´t depose dictators (yet). Unlike Egypt, Americans are not going hungry , their churches are not being attacked, nuns paraded through the streets, etc. No, we are "enjoying" a soft tyranny unlike the Egyptians who are suffering under a hard tyranny.

Not only worry about Hillary and Huma, but Christie seems to be somewhat soft on muslim extremists.

Obama was born Muslim. He was raised Muslim. He attended a madrasa. He went by the western name Barry until his adult years. He chose to revert to his Muslim name Barack as an adult. Barack is the English spelling of al-Baraq. Mohammed´s horse was named al-Baraq.

Multiple choice. Obama is...
1) Muslim
2) Christian
3) Neither

Obama is not a practicing Muslim (he drinks too much) but he does faithfully wear his “No god but Allah” ring, and allows MB family at the highest level of the State Department (Abedin). His insistence that the MB be allowed to participate in Egyptian affairs is nothing short of unhinged. He is truly and surely the most psychologically unbalanced and irrational president in the history of the republic. And yet he is the face of today’s Democrat Party.

Strange indeed. Many have suspected this love affair as genuine. This unfathomable link between the MB and Obama is certainly obvious to many. How much has been overt and how much ´covert´, and how has it affected our relations with other countries in the middle east, including Israel?

In response to #1...Huma Abedin Weiner, of Muslim Brotherhood family connections, was a close aide to Hillary Clinton during and before the Clinton Presidency.

So it isn´t Obama who has some sort of love affair with the Muslim Brotherhood.

We have some understanding about Huma Abedin and her and her family´s ties to and involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood. We know Abedin has been close to Hillary Clinton and probably to Bill Clinton and Princess Chelsea also.

We also know Anthony Weiner is a Jew, and Muslims hate Jews above everyone else. So why would a committed and involved Mulsim like Huma Abedin marry a Jew without being condemned by her Muslim Brotherhood, family and fellow Muslims?

The three statements that, for me, are Obama´s key self-proclaimed ID signatures:1. fundamentally change America, 2. an internal police force that´s as large and well-funded as the military, 3. I will stand with the Muslims.
Why don´t we just accept him at his word? He´s gutted the Constitution, Nepalitano´s gestapo HS and TSA are now patrolling our streets and big box stores, and given crazy, killing Muslims and less crazy Muslims, he sides with the most crazy killing ones.

What is the explanation for this absolutely self-destructive, even idiotic, policy on our part?

There can be only one — the president of the United States is actually psychologically disturbed.


Here´s another, it could be blackmail. Morsi and Obama were pals for the year Morsi was in power. What if they cooked up Benghazi as a means to trade Stevens for the Blind Sheik (getting the Blind Sheik back was something Morsi had been trying to achieve all along)? That would explain the whole terrorist attack, lack of people killed in a massive exchange of gun fire during the initial confrontation, the stand down orders (don´t want to mess up a pre-planned echange), and the subsequent cover up when the Seals screwed the whole thing up by doing their job. So far the cover up has worked but Morsi still knows what happened and so now holds Obama in the palm of his hand. Obama has to oppose the Egyptian military and at least silently support the MusBros.

Yes a conspiracy theory but one that explains things nicely.

The title of this article should be ´Obama’s Strange Love Affair with Reggie and the Muslim Brotherhood´.

So much for the Arab Spring and those poor downtrodden terrorists disguised as a sad parody of comic book good guys. All that scheming and arming of people who blow themselves and other people to pieces has gone to waste.

When the Brotherhood took over the government of Egypt with Obama´s backing, our aid to Egypt kept flowing. Since that situation has reversed itself, Obama has now secretly halted all aid to Egypt. People who burn Christian churches are still the good guys in Obama world.

That´s OK though, just another phony scandal. Sort of like a big time Benghazi.

I understand Obama´s motives and methods, but it is John McCain´s behavior that shocks me, considering his history as a patriot.

My only explanation is that some of these dinosaur politicians cannot switch gears from decades of "spread democracy everywhere" to the current wartime reality. The real danger is their inability to recognize the enemy, both overseas and within our country.

Get up to date and study your enemy and their methods. You only need to read their own words in this article. "Democracy....is “like a streetcar. When you come to your stop, you get off.”

Some where in the mists of my memory, I seem to recall an article or program that one of those who are supposed to see the future, prophesied that there would be a long and bloodied war between the Islamist and the Western World. It was further stated that the West would eventually end, but at great cost. Somehow, the current activities in the Middle East have me remembering that prophecy. Are we just now entering the beginning stages of that war?

Obama is not so hard to figure out. He has the psychological problem of considering himself one of the perpetually downtrodden, which explains his many expensive vacations as a way to stick it to whitey and America. He no doubt picked this up from his drunken Kenyan father who filled him with stories of British cruelty to the Kenyan people. The anger manifests itself when people defy his dictatorial manner because he´s the "ruler" now. That´s exactly why he considers the Brotherhood his brothers and us the enemy. In short, the man is hate-filled as well as nuts.

Reflecting on Kelo nine years later

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread. "We are the New York Yankees of table tennis," said Texas Wesleyan University Coach Jasna Rather. "Everybody hates our guts."

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010.

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it.

Some good folks are pig-biting mad about my recent article noting that the rate of foreclosures has dropped dramatically as a result of the reinflation of the real estate market.(Snip for tweet)Some of the vituperation is coming from the usual gang of housing justice fairness activists incensed that anybody (let alone a majority of homeowners and experts) would oppose the practice of giving public assistance to people who borrowed money with no intention of paying it back. But a lot of the abuse stems from a sentiment I agree with — that declaring victory on mortgage defaults means you have

Timing is everything in politics and the latest Fox News poll suggests the timing of the 2014 midterm election could not be worse for President Obama and his fellow Democrats. With public approval of Congress in the single digits, senators and representatives in both parties may face the most challenging political environment of their careers. But the Fox survey makes clear that things aren´t breaking well for Obama, either, and his popularity rating may be the most important factor in determining how Democrats fare in November. Presidents have been unpopular before. Harry Truman´s approval rating sank to 23 percent at

Returning home from service in a war is never easy, and it is all the harder when veterans are maligned as dangerous time bombs. U.S. vets are a sweepingly broad group. It is surely fair to say that on the whole they have displayed a greater proclivity to national service than many of their fellow Americans. But beyond that, generalizations become dicey fast. (Snip)So it is now with the fury generated by a New York Times Op-Ed that was headlined, “Veterans and White Supremacy,” and that was illustrated by a drawing of soldiers saluting in silhouette — except one instead

Hillary Clinton and her friends in the media have been testing messages for her expected presidential campaign. The case for her will be built on four pillars: that allegations of her corruption are unfair; that she is highly accomplished; that she is above partisanship; and that she is a woman. The first three are dubious and the fourth will matter less than you may think. Do you remember Webb Hubbell, the McDougals, the missing Rose Law firm billing records, Travelgate, or Hillary’s surprise acumen at high-risk commodities trading? Super PACs and other groups will remind voters of all of these case

WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
