I have concluded Obama is right. I think we HAVE become just that stupid.

Obama And The Manure Spreader

A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
"For decades, a so-called anti-propaganda law prevented the U.S. government's mammoth broadcasting arm from delivering programming to American audiences. But on July 2, that came silently to an end with the implementation of a new reform passed in January. The result: an unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption in a reform initially criticized as a green light for U.S. domestic propaganda efforts. So what just happened?" SOURCE

If you have ever wondered what would happen if you threw a truck load of cow manure into a fertilizer spreader, you're about to find out!

It would seem that, finally, the Obama Administration has concluded that Americans are sufficiently stupid enough that they can now be plied with taxpayer funded lies gussied-up to appear as truthful messages from a "caring government" sometimes referred to as ... Aunt Nanna.

The Obama Regime has decided we are dumb enough that we won't even notice that we are being manipulated by the machinations of dark forces within a government gone rogue.

As if that were not scary enough, after a bit of soul searching, I have concluded Obama is right. I think we HAVE become just that stupid.

Once again, we warn that the US is beginning to favor the old USSR more and more, every day, under the Obama Regime. Until NOW the people of the US have not had to bear-up under the strain of government sponsored propaganda broadcasts. In the Old USSR it was common practice. In nearly all Marxist countries it is standard practice. Now that the US has adopted Marxism, under Obama's guidance and tutorship, it will now be a part of every American's daily brain training by the government.

Until now, it was flat-out illegal to broadcast government propaganda in the US. No longer.

"Until this month, a vast ocean of U.S. programming produced by the Broadcasting Board of Governors such as Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and the Middle East Broadcasting Networks could only be viewed or listened to at broadcast quality in foreign countries. The programming varies in tone and quality, but its breadth is vast: It's viewed in more than 100 countries in 61 languages. The topics covered include human rights abuses in Iran; self-immolation in Tibet; human trafficking across Asia; and on-the-ground reporting in Egypt and Iraq."

For most Americans, I suspect the "BBG" is a completely unheard of organization. Heck, I spent thirty years in the broadcasting industry and I rarely, if ever, heard their name brought up.

Back in the day --you know -- back before America became stupid and people actually paid attention to things outside their thirty inches of personal space, folks had heard of entities such as: Voice of America, Radio Free Europe, Radio Liberty, Middle East Broadcasting networks (including Alhurra TV and Radio Sawa), Radio Free Asia, and the Office of Cuba Broadcasting better known, at least among the domestic broadcasting community, as "Radio Marti."

The BBG became an independent, autonomous entity on October 1, 1999, as a result of the Foreign Affairs Reform and Restructuring Act of 1998 (Pub.L. 105–277). BBG had 3,200 employees and a budget of US$535 million in 2002.

The 2012 budget request from BBG was $767 million.

"According to a series of reports beginning in 2004 and generated by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the BBG has struggled to live up to its mission. For instance, GAO highlighted a structural issue of the BBG in a 2004 report claiming that "organizationally, the existence of five separate broadcast entities has led to overlapping language services, duplication of program content, redundant news gathering and support services, and difficulties coordinating broadcast efforts."[10] The report also added that "marketing challenges include outmoded program formats, poor signal delivery, and low audience awareness in many markets." [10]/blockquote> In April 2010, Senator Tom Coburn held up the appointments of the Obama administration, with the aim of drawing attention to the organization's perceived ineffectiveness, stating in an interview: "The BBG is the most worthless organization in the federal government. It's full of people who know nothing about media or foreign policy."[2] Senator Jim DeMint also attempted to use the nominations to force a hearing on the BBG, after frustrations with a perceived lack of congressional oversight over the organization.[2] Coburn had written an open letter to then-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in August 2010 citing "longstanding concerns regarding transparency and effectiveness of our taxpayer funded international broadcasting agencies under the purview of the Broadcasting Board of Governors."

Understand: We are talking about the US government feeding propaganda to the American people. Understand, too, that propaganda is information (or misinformation) that is spread for the purpose of promoting some cause, some action (or even some inaction) the government favors. It is pure manipulation of the masses often described as "brain washing." In the months and years ahead look for it anywhere as political propaganda (especially Marxist propaganda) can be, and often is, communicated via art, literature, and the movies. Just a few years ago, I would not be so troubled by this announcement. Now, however, with the American public having been dumbed-down by decades of government indoctrination in the so-called public education system, It is certainly conceivable that propaganda could (and I am now convinced -- WILL) be a very effective tool for the government to use to continue to shred the constitution and the rights guaranteed to the American people by it.

The inability to discern the difference between government propaganda and the truth will have dire consequences for freedom in America. In rather short order Americans will no longer know WHOM to believe and the more discerning among us will choose to believe no one!

If you have not done so already, then we advise you to dust off your "BS Meter", calibrate it, and prepare for the tsunami of Bovine Scatology coming your way from those wonderful people who brought you Obamacare.

Did America abandon it's children?

Preface…or a footnote in disguise.
Taking a break for an editorial review by my editor-in-chief better known as the ‘Mrs.’ in the family the opening paragraph may be a little strong.  Good, that’s what I wanted.  But I should explain about the parent’s naiveté she said.  That’s true, the parents are complacent in that they have put all their trust in the government’s school system not knowing that infiltrators have slowly gained ground ever since the days of John Dewey and C.F. Potter.  Now that the infiltrators have gained the upper hand it’s time we the people reverse course not only for our children’s sake but for the entire country…United we stand, divided we fall.

Common Core
by Norman E. Hooben

Americans abandon their children!   I didn’t know whether to end that sentence with a period of or an exclamatory point…I settled for the exclamatory point because it is a direct assault or accusation that is true and to the point.  It’s accusatory because even parents who may be in denial are guilty.  Only if they took the time to read, to research, to get involved and not play politics with the issue will they finally see the light.  Further, it is accusatory to parents who have advanced to the age of empty nesters…that’s right, you old folks who have played politics all your life with not only your children, with your entire country.  It is you who have allowed this to happen.  And only you and your children will be able to stop it.  What am I talking about?  Common Core…the government’s take-over of your child’s every thought, word, and deed…and let me add, your child’s future place in society.  Forget about yours or your child’s ambition, the central planners will have it all cut out for you… And without your permission!  The only permission you have given was for the state to take control of your child therefore you have abandoned them!

Now the minute I start mentioning any names all you hard core Democrats or Republicans will abandon further reading just like you did your children because you’re still playing politics.  Mention Bill Clinton and I lose all you Republicans.  Mention Ronald Reagan and I lose all you Democrats.  Wake up you’re about to lose your country!  But if it’s any consolation your country will be run by your children who have been thoroughly indoctrinated by the central planners…ahem, wasn’t there a guy named Hitler that tried out this central planner concept?

So without regards to who is presenting the message, please pay attention to the content of the message, else all is for naught (including your children).

‘National Strategy Session’ Presents Everything You Need to Know About Stopping Common Core
by Erica Ritz
Common Core could be the future of your children’s education, but the majority of parents in America probably don’t know a whole lot about it.
Did you know, for instance, that as part of the educational curriculum, a litany of “data points” are set to be mined?
Kyle Olson of the Education Action Group said on TheBlaze TV Thursday that these points include “blood type, voting status of their parents, religious affiliation, their income…things that have nothing to do with their children’s education.”
Olson was part of a group of parents, lawmakers, and concerned citizens who attended what was described as a “national strategy session” on TheBlaze TV about how to best explain and prevent the implementation of Common Core.
“Common Core is kind of nebulous for a lot people,” David Barton explained. “They know what it is, but they can’t define it…What are the key points that will resonate with most Americans?”
One parent, Tammy Slaten, explained that when she started informing herself about the curriculum she sent an email to other parents in her child’s class.
To her shock, she was “called to the principal’s office” where she was told to stop, and to not ask the teachers what they think. More than that, the principal allegedly told her that they are state employees and whether Common Core is “good or bad,” it is their priority.
“You take that attitude and combine it with data mining and what does it suggest?” Barton asked.
Watch more on TheBlaze TV “strategy session,” which includes the voices of parents and lawmakers, below:
But how can concerned citizens stop the implementation of Common Core, an education program that removes control from the parents and communities and turns it over to the state and federal government?
State Senator Margaret Dayton (R-Utah) said it needs to be reiterated that the program violates the United States constitution.
One parent put the issue in another perspective: “Do you want the same government that has given us Eric Holder, Benghazi, [the] IRS enemies list, Fast and Furious, ObamaCare — do you want that government to take control of what your precious child is going to learn in school?”
Watch below to see the strategists’ solutions:

This has Obama's name all over it

The following from: Atlas Shrugs
Leaked emails prove Obama "backed plan to launch chemical weapon attack on Syria and blame it on Assad"

And the band plays on. American reminds me of a battered victim suffering from Stockholm Syndrome. Will nothing shake America out of her Obama-induced stupor?
Obama's tactics seem to emulate the al qaeda jihadists he is supporting in Syria.
This is evil. Imagine what we don't know.
Thanks to Armaros for sending this news story. He laments: "Obama brought me to a point where, contrary to how I always felt and most of us do wanting to win debates and be proven right, I am now days hope to be wrong. I hope that the story I am reading is not true as much as I despise this impostor. Your book was one of the first, if not the first series of information I was hoping to be proven wrong. Now daily I see stuff I wish turning out as some Alex Jones conspiracy or FB hoax or whatever...except the truth."

U.S. 'backed plan to launch chemical weapon attack on Syria and blame it on Assad's regime' Daily Mail
  • Leaked emails from defense contractor refers to chemical weapons saying 'the idea is approved by Washington'
  • Obama issued warning to Syrian president Bashar al-Assad last month that use of chemical warfare was 'totally unacceptable'

PUBLISHED:14:16 EST, 29 January 2013 | UPDATED:18:17 EST, 29 January 2013
Leaked emails have allegedly proved that the White House gave the green light to a chemical weapons attack in Syria that could be blamed on Assad's regime and in turn, spur international military action in the devastated country.
A report released on Monday contains an email exchange between two senior officials at British-based contractor Britam Defence where a scheme 'approved by Washington' is outlined explaining that Qatar would fund rebel forces in Syria to use chemical weapons.
Barack Obama made it clear to Syrian president Bashar al-Assad last month that the U.S. would not tolerate Syria using chemical weapons against its own people.

According to Infowars.comthe December 25 email was sent from Britam's Business Development Director David Goulding to company founder Philip Doughty.
It reads: 'Phil... We’ve got a new offer. It’s about Syria again. Qataris propose an attractive deal and swear that the idea is approved by Washington.
'We’ll have to deliver a CW to Homs, a Soviet origin g-shell from Libya similar to those that Assad should have.

Obama Allies Behead Catholic Priest In Syria
Obama’s war on the Christian religion, particularly the Catholic variety, has claimed another casualty in the Middle East. The Vatican confirmed that “Syrian priest François Murad was killed in Gassanieh, in northern Syria, in the convent of the Custody of the Holy Land where he had taken refuge.… According to local sources, the monastery where Fr. Murad was staying was attacked by militants linked to the jihadi group Jabhat al-Nusra.” A graphic video of unknown origin- linked below- shows a crowd of Islamic militants gathered in a circle around three men kneeling on the ground. Many of the onlookers were shooting video of the scene from cell phones and other devices. Each of the kneeling men, in turn, is forced to the ground and their head is sawed off with a butcher knife. It’s scene that has become too familiar across the globe. According to sources familiar with Jabhat al-Nusra, they are one of the most violent of the rebel Syrian factions, with roots in the Iraqi civil war, where they fought American soldiers. They are also very successful, controlling large portion of Syria. And, oh yeah, they are part of the Al Qaida network taking orders from Iraq. "Let us pray," writes the Custos of the Holy Land Pierbattista Pizzaballa OFM according to Catholic Online "so that this absurd and shameful war ends soon and that the people of Syria can go back to living a normal life." Archbishop Jacques Behnan Hindo, titular head of the Syrian Catholic church said: "The whole story of Christians in the Middle East is marked and made fruitful by the blood of the martyrs of many persecutions. Lately, father Murad sent me some messages that clearly showed how conscious he was of living in a dangerous situation, and offered his life for peace in Syria and around the world." Thanks President Nobel for helping him out, although, I’m not sure Father Murad really needed your assistance. So why exactly are we arming Islamic extremists across the Middle East? Explain to me just how spreading arms and radical ideas even further into the region are in the best interest of the United States and its allies. I’m not a big fan of Syrian president Assad, but it seems to me that there is little to choose from in Syria. Actually, this is a great opportunity to get Syria to behave better. Make no mistake either: This war won’t be a pushover like Libya was. Syria isn’t an isolated Libya. The current Syrian government will get the weapons it needs from Russia to fight the insurgents, because Russia has the means to keep the supply lines open. One reason why Russia has the means is because as the West pushed harsher terms to Cyprus during their banking crisis this year, Cyprus sought relief from disaster by striking a deal with Moscow. Those discussions are ongoing. “On Monday Defence Minister Fotis Fotiou confirmed that recent defence talks with Moscow had centred on a request by Moscow for the use of sea and air facilities on the island,” reported the Cyprus Mail on June 30th. “Russia has been using Limassol port for refueling and supplies its naval vessels for over a year.”Cyprus has long been subject to divisions between Greek Christianity and Middle East Islam.In 1974, Turkey, an Islamic country, invaded Cyprus and continues to occupy a large slice of the island. It’s a bone of contention for Greece and Greek Cypriots still. As a counterpoise, it would appear that Russia is attempting, with some success, to set itself up as a guarantor of the Christian population in the Middle East and the Mediterranean.“If Cyprus proves to be better off with Russia's financial, political and strategic backing than Greece with the assistance of the European Union,” predicted Gatestone Online last year, “the close relations between the Greeks and the Cypriots might convince Greece that it, too, should turn to Moscow rather than to Brussels for financial and economic help. A strategic realignment in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East might then be in the offing. If the EU and NATO keep regarding the pro-Islamic government in Turkey as their preferred ally, before they know it they might be confronted with an alliance of Russia, Cyprus and Greece – a strong Christian-Orthodox axis against the Turks. And whom would this alliance target after that? “Who indeed? Almost anyone, since Obama has made a mess of things. U.S. foreign policy is a disaster and Syria is just the latest symptom. If I told you 30 years ago that the United States in 30 years would be arming Islamic rebels against Christian populations with Russia acting as benefactors to Christianity, you would have called me crazy. And crazy is the only way to describe it.We live in a political world where Chinese communists lecture our country about the virtues of capitalism and the limits of socialism and Russia warns our government about spying on U.S. citizens- while Russian warnings that we are harboring Islamic terrorists go ignored. In this country Obama has all but declared war on Christians, especially Catholics. Many Catholics have allied with Obama in the mistaken belief that the government's war on capitalism won't spread to a war on religion. Obama doesn't just want government to replace the banks, however, but the church as well. He can't have another alms-giver out there competing with the government, like Catholic Health Services, competes with Obamacare. "I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square,” said Chicago Cardinal Francis George. “His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the church has done so often in human history."And Obama’s giving it a Russian face. Oh, how Nobel of him. CAUTION: THIS LINK CONTAINS EXTREMELY GRAPHIC MATERIAL NOT SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE. IF YOU ARE OVER 18 AND AGREE, YOU CAN CLICK HERE. H/T to Bob Beauprez for the video.

Is this what we've come to? "What happened to Terri Bennett is an outrage..."

The following from WND
See video presentation below.
Student booted from U.S. college for favoring English!

An Arizona college is being sued for labeling a student a “bigot” and punishing her with a long-term suspension after she requested that English be used in her nursing studies class so she could learn the subject.
The action was filed against Pima Community College on behalf of student Terri Bennett, who alleged that school officials created a “learning environment [that] was hostile to her as an English-language speaker.”

The complaint alleges that Bennett repeatedly was thwarted in her work listening to lectures, finishing group studies and participating in skills labs, clinicals and other learning activities by fellow students who spoke Spanish, which she did not understand. Study groups and labs in which she participated, an essential part of her nursing training, were being conducted in Spanish.
In response, she asked the college – which operates, ironically, under Arizona’s English-only legal requirement – to help enforce the use of English in her class so she could continue to pursue her educational goals. However, according to the complaint, Bennett was targeted by the school with ridicule, attacks, threats and, eventually, a nine-month suspension.
The group ProEnglish is helping Bennett with legal support.

“What happened to Terri Bennett is an outrage,” said ProEnglish Executive Director Robert Vandervoort. “For simply seeking a classroom environment where she can learn in English, Terri was harshly treated by the PCC administration, viciously insulted, and punished with a nine-month suspension.
“This school should be known as ‘Politically Correct College,’” said Vandervoort, whose organization advocates for the use of English as a unifying factor. “We look forward to bringing justice for Terri and making sure other students are allowed to learn in English.”
Paul Schwalback, public information manager for the tax-supported institution, sent a college-approved statement on the case to WND.
“Due to federal law protecting student privacy, Pima Community College is not able to comment specifically about Terri Bennett’s situation,” it started.
But the college did talk about the case, explaining, “We are confident the evidence will demonstrate that the college acted appropriately with respect to Ms. Bennett’s situation.”
PCC also touted its “positive learning environment for all students” and efforts to hold “students and employees accountable to those standards.”
“While the legal process is pending, we do not believe it would be appropriate to make a detailed statement about the allegations in the lawsuit,” the statement concluded.
ProEnglish explained that after Bennett asked for English usage in her class, “school administrators called Ms. Bennett a ‘bigot,’ and she received a nine-month suspension.”
“Ms. Bennett reached out to ProEnglish for assistance in May as PCC took these actions against her. ProEnglish contacted the Arizona law firm of Munger & Chadwick to represent Ms. Bennett. On July 8, 2013, the school was served with a complaint from Ms. Bennett through her attorneys, seeking administrative review,” ProEnglish said.
The court complaint, dated Monday, alleges violations of the Arizona Constitution and the First Amendment as well as unlawful suspension, defamation, violation of the right to privacy and false light, discrimination, retaliation, harassment, breach of contract, breach of duty of good faith and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
“On or about March 18, 2013, Ms. Bennett started a class in Introduction to Nursing, presented by PCC instructor, Ms. Elizabeth Coleman. During this class, the talking interruptions and distractions, all in Spanish, from her peers increased dramatically, to the point that it impeded Ms. Bennett’s ability to concentrate, focus, listen to the lecture and participate in group studies, skills labs, clinicals, and other learning activities,” the complaint alleges.
Within weeks, there was an “interaction” between Spanish-speaking students and non-Spanish-speaking students in class “in which the Spanish speakers were asked not to speak in Spanish in front of the non-Spanish speakers.”
“The Spanish-speaking group of students laughed and mocked Ms. Bennett and the other non-Spanish speakers,” the complaint notes.
Eventually, she complained to the school and in a meeting with David Kutzler, the director of the nursing program.
Kutzler accused Bennett of “discriminating against Mexican-Americans” and threatened to “write [her] up” for a violation of the code of conduct based on discrimination and harassment, the complaint says.
He accused Bennett of being a “bigot and a b**ch” and warned, “you do not want to go down that road.”
She persisted in expressing her concerns, contacting the student services coordinator, who set up a meeting in which she was accused of discrimination. Another meeting was to follow, with a dean, but the dean canceled it.
“Then on Monday morning, April 22, 2013, Ms. Bennett arrived on campus. … She immediately noticed Mr. Kutzler running from his car into the Nursing Office building. She also noticed there were several law enforcement vehicles in the parking lot. … As Ms. Bennett entered the building, she was approached by a man who identified himself as head of PCC security, and who requested whether she was Terri Bennett and requested her to show her identity card, which Ms. Bennett did. … Ms. Bennett was given a sealed envelope, informed that she was immediately suspended from PCC, and instructed to leave campus immediately. … Upon information and belief, a police vehicle followed her to the freeway. Mr. Kutzler sent an email to PCC staff advising them that they were not allowed to talk to Ms. Bennett.”
The case says Bennett was humiliated, shamed and afraid because of the encounter.
One part of the sealed letter accused her of presenting “an unreasonable risk of danger to yourself and/or others or … your presence on college property poses a significant risk of disruption of education activities.”
Her punishment was the 9-month suspension.
However, the lawsuit notes that the school offered no reasons for the charges.
A second part of the sealed letter accused her of engaging in discriminatory conduct, disrupting class and “harrassing (sic) Mexican-American students in your class with inappropriate remarks about their heritage.”
The lawsuit notes that the state constitution dictates that “the English language is the official language of the state of Arizona, and a representative of government is obliged to preserve, protect and enhance the role of the English language, as well as not discriminate against any person or in any way penalize any person because the person uses or attempts to use or wishes to use the English language.”
Bennett’s representatives told local media outlets they likely would seek damages amounting to six figures.

Double 'A' Survival Hint... When you're out of matches, how do you start a fire?

Einstein & Graham

Billy Graham is now 94 years-old with Parkinson's disease.
Leaders in Charlotte, North Carolina,invited their favorite son, Billy Graham, to a luncheon in his honor.
Billy initially hesitated to accept the invitation because he struggles with Parkinson's disease. But the Charlotte leaders said, 'We don't expect a major address. Just come and let us honor you.' So he agreed.

After wonderful things were said about him, Dr. Graham stepped to the rostrum, looked at the crowd, and said,
"I'm reminded today of Albert Einstein, the great physicist who this month has been honored by Time magazine as the Man of the Century. Einstein was once traveling from Princeton on a train when the conductor came down the aisle, punching the tickets of every passenger. When he came to Einstein, Einstein reached in his vest pocket. He couldn't find his ticket, so he reached in his trouser pockets.
It wasn't there. He looked in his briefcase but couldn't find it.
Then he looked in the seat beside him. He still couldn't find it.
"The conductor said, 'Dr. Einstein, I know who you are. We all know who you are. I'm sure you bought a ticket. Don't worry about it.'
"Einstein nodded appreciatively. The conductor continued down the aisle punching tickets. As he was ready to move to the next car, he turned around and saw the great physicist down on his hands and knees looking under his seat for his ticket.
"The conductor rushed back and said, 'Dr. Einstein, Dr. Einstein, don't worry, I know who you are; no problem. You don't need a ticket. I'm sure you bought one.'
Einstein looked at him and said, "Young man, I too, know who I am. What I don't know is where I'm going.”

Having said that Billy Graham continued, "See the suit I'm wearing? It's a brand new suit. My children, and my grandchildren are telling me I've gotten a little slovenly in my old age. I used to be a bit more fastidious. So I went out and bought a new suit for this luncheon and one more occasion. You know what that occasion is? This is the suit in which I'll be buried. But when you hear I'm dead, I don't want you to immediately remember the suit I'm wearing. I want you to remember this:

I not only know who I am. I also know where I'm going."

Amen & Peace My Friends

And may each of us have lived our lives so that when our ticket is punched we don't have to worry about where we are going.
Even at 94 years old and with Parkinson's Disease, he can still deliver a powerful sermon

While you were sidetracked... Has Martin-Zimmerman kept you there? ...and who is Joseph Stiglitz?

While you were sidetracked... Has Martin-Zimmerman kept you there?
by Norman E. Hooben

While the nation is sidetracked with the Martin-Zimmerman trial and it's 'not guilty' verdict there's plenty of  'goings-on-behind-the-scenes'  activity.  Who was it that said, "Never let a good crisis go to waste."?  If you said "Eric Holder" you would be correct.  While Holder is holding the race card over Zimmerman in the national spotlight, Obama cronies are busy fulfilling the tyrannical tidbits of all things considered necessary for the eventual takeover by the United Nations. 
Earlier I stumbled upon an editorial posted at The Nation with the title, "To Rescue Local Economies, Cities Seize Underwater Mortgages Through Eminent Domain".   Now what does one have to do with the other?  Anyone thinking 'Agenda 21' ?  Before we get too far into this we should understand that the title to the editorial is in itself misleading.  Rescue local economies?  This is a joke!  Let me remind you that these people always come up with a 'lets-call-it-something-else' for the citizenry too busy with all that sidetracked crisis stuff.  Remember this:
“Participating in a UN advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy- fixated groups and individuals in our society… This segment of our society who fear ‘one-world government’ and a UN invasion of the United States through which our individual freedom would be stripped away would actively work to defeat any elected official who joined ‘the conspiracy’ by undertaking LA21. So we call our process something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management or smart growth.” ~ J. Gary Lawrence, advisor to President Clinton’s Council on Sustainable Development.

Back to the editorial... Why am I concerned with it?  For one thing the politic elite have figured out a way to eventually do away with private property making it appear that its the owners own fault for getting too deep into debt.  Here's a quote from the editorial:
In almost every part of the country, entire neighborhoods—and in some cases, whole cities—are underwater. They are not victims of natural disasters like Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy. Like the Conways, they are drowning in debt, victims of Wall Street’s reckless and predatory lending practices.
Victims of Wall Street predatory lending practices?  Another joke!  How about the Community Re-investment Act...the so-called CRA.  The CRA was a government program that forced banks into lending to un-qualified buyers.  Period! 

Now somwhere in the editorial I ran into the name Joseph Stiglitz...and the lights went on!  Who is Joseph Stiglitz?  Here let me draw you a picture:
Back in September of 2009 I gave you a little insight on this Stiglitz feller under the title, New World Monetary System Inevitable...a biased report! reprinted here for your convenience:
I've been warning Americans for a very long time about this issue and not a soul listened. Well it's upon us now...or very soon. It may come shortly after the G20 Summit to be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania later this month. Personally I'm predicting some major news that will affect every single American (and possibly every European) by December or January. This is the kind of issue that is kept out of the mainstream media (MSM) for fear of an uprising among the common people.
The article below was written by a very left wing anti-American member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) . Mr. Stiglitz slants his writings to affix blame on the previous administration. When in reality the blame is upon him and his cronies, Carter, Clinton, Obama, Kissinger, George Soros, et al. In the very first paragraph Stiglitz blames the Bush Administration...but doesn't mention Obama's vote for the first stimulus package while he was still Senator Obama. He doesn't tell you the role that the Community Re-investment Act (CRA) played in the current crisis. The CRA is a product of the aforementioned who incidentally all belong to the New World Order clan. He doesn't tell you the United Nations role in the New World order, that is! He doesn't tell you about ACORN's role...remember, ACORN is one of the most corrupt organizations in the country who Obama gave millions of your taxpayers dollars to further their corrupt causes. He doesn't tell you about Goldman-Sachs role...Goldman-Sachs! How can Goldman-Sachs be making so much money off this ordeal when everybody else is losing? (In the first six months of the year, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. accrued $11.4 billion for total compensation, an average of $386,429 per employee, a Wall Street record.) Where Stiglitz says, "...a new and more stable global reserve system is likely to emerge, and for the world as a whole, as well as for the United States, this would be a good thing." He knows damn well it will emerge (not "likely") and we all know it's a bad thing!
Stiglitz should stop trying to manage globalization and let Adam Smith's invisible hand continue it's's been pretty good up to now.
No my friends, this crisis was not inherited from George has been in the planning stages for many years...just ask Bill Clinton or George Soros they know! (I don't know who is worse, George Soros or Joe Stiglitz...probably Stiglitz because he's a professor at Columbia where he feeds his poison to young minds.  To continue reading Stiglitz's New world monetary system inevitable go here .

Bloggers Certified By NSA Insider...we knew it all along

Remember when I posted this: (See Spying On You, Spying On The World...we got you covered! dated January 19, 2009)
I've just finished reading this intriguing the uninformed run-of-the-mill citizen you should be aware that every piece of e-mail you send or every phone call you make, whether you're calling your girlfriend for a date or calling your dentist for an appointment, you can be assured that Big Brother has already reviewed your e-mail before it reached it's destination or listened to your phone call before you hung up the phone...Recommended for all Americans, The Shadow Factory should knock your socks off with such revealing information, you would wonder how the book was ever published! - Norman E. Hooben
Read The Shadow Factory book report here. 
Then there was a related post where I said this: (See What Issues? This IS the Issue! The only issue!dated June 27 2008)
Now let’s not get hung up on the words "only issue" for certainly there are issues.  I emphasize this previously posted commentary because of the need to remind people that which is going on behind the scenes and what the mainstream media is not telling you. Further, that this so called shadow government is bi-partisan and all other issues are designed to keep you side-tracked; off balance, if you will.  All candidates running for the presidency of the United States are firmly entrenched in this movement described herein and I fear for the sovereignty of our nation. So disregard the date the article was written and believe me when I say it, "This movement to do away with your country IS still in play!" And you can blame the politic elite from both political parties...the Bush family, the Clinton family, the Obama family...sounds like there's a Mafioso family running things.  Now if you ask, "What can I do about it?" Simple, get rid of ALL the incumbents in both the House and Senate and elect Independents who have never held office; we need to get back to the Constitution as it were on and be prepared for Mr. Farah's last sentence! 
(Note:  Just so you won't have to go back here , Mr. Farah's last sentence says, "It's time to fight the War of Independence all over again.")

Now it appears we bloggers (I'm not the only one posting this stuff) have been certified (some might say, "vindicated") by a government/NSA insider.  See the following videos:

Muslim Brotherhood – Where’s the Beef? Find the Prime Right Here
by Maggie
Emblem of the Muslim Brotherhood
The Muslim Brotherhood (MB) was formed in 1928 with a mission to institute Shariah Law and bring the Islamic caliphate to life across the globe – a stated goal to “destroy the Western civilization from within.” The goal has never changed. While we watch the power grabs in Egypt, the people of the U.S. must realize that we are the center of the target of a stealth power-take-over by the Brotherhood which sees itself as ‘the’ way of Islam, ‘the’ way for you and me. Shariah Law is not peaceful. Shariah Law is not secular. When the Brotherhood says they have rejected violence, their own creed reveals the enormity of that lie, and a document found in 2001, further demonstrates how the MB plans to continue being ‘the’ way to Islam for you and me. There is already significant evidence that the MB are already installed quite comfortably in some of our highest levels of Government. Below, I’ve skimmed over the early founding of al-Banna and Saudi influences and/or Muslim Brotherhood networks in Saudi Arabia and focus on Egypt and Palestine and the U.S., with the goals of the Brotherhood laid-out first, then the world players who have led the organization to astonishing growth. SKIP TO The ‘Muslim Brotherhood World Leaders’ below if time as short, but come back to understand the roots of the MB when you have time. As you read, remember our Director of National Intelligence James Clapper declared the Muslim Brotherhood to be a “secular” organization.
“For the Brotherhood democracy is nothing but a dance with the devil,” the paper wrote. “It is the means to come to power. Afterwards they will whip democracy and behead it with the sword.” ~ Rosa al Yousef, Cairo July 2007
Muslim Brotherhood Creed from beginning to present day:
“Allah is our objective, the prophet is our leader, the Koran is our law, Jihad is our way, dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”
“Ikhwan” means
Arab Brothers or Brothers

Gatestone Institute – Muslim Brotherhood in U.S.Government – (the most comprehensive article I’ve found, well-documented – should be bookmarked):

Since its inception in 1928, the Muslim Brotherhood consistently has championed the cause of global jihad to “mobilize the entire Umma into one body to defend the right cause with all its strength…to jihad, to warfare…”[6]Until early 2011, its original bylaws could be found on the Brotherhood’s English language website, Ikhwanweb, established in 2005 by senior Brotherhood official Khairat al-Shater. Since then, they have been preserved by Steven Emerson at The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT)[7]. Article (2) makes clear that the Brotherhood conceives of itself as “an international Muslim Body, which seeks to establish Allah’s law in the land by achieving the spiritual goals of Islam and the true religion…establishing the Islamic State” and “…building a new basis of human civilization as is ensured by the overall teachings of Islam.”[8]

In case that sounds relatively benign, Article (3) E gets more to the point: “The Islamic nation must be fully prepared to fight the tyrants and the enemies of Allah as a prelude to establishing an Islamic state.”[9] This is exactly what the Brotherhood did in Egypt in the violent years before and after the 1949 death of al-Banna, until it was forcibly suppressed, only to rise again in 2011-2012 when circumstances permitted.
During the terrorism-financing trials of the Holy Land Foundation (with still today 300 “unindicted co-conspirators, including CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) a document was submitted into evidence, written by a Muslim Brotherhood member and titled “An Explanatory Memorandum on the general Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.” The author was Mohamed Akram. The memo was found in the home of Ismael Elbarasse, a founder of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia.

● Written sometime in 1987 but not formally published until May 22, 1991, Akram’s 18-page document listed the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded “organizations of our friends” that shared the common goal of dismantling American institutions and turning the U.S. into a Muslim nation. These “friends” were identified by Akram and the Brotherhood as groups that could help convince Muslims “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 … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.” Source: Discover the Networks.
● Much was uncovered during the investigation associated with the prosecution, including the extent to which the Muslim Brotherhood had infiltrated America and controlled all of the major Muslim organizations in America, to include the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Several such organizations and individuals were named as unindicted co-conspirators in the trial and it was the reported intention of the Dallas US attorney’s office to prosecute at least some of those co-conspirators before Barack Obama ascended to the presidency and Eric Holder became attorney general and shut the whole operation down.

The Muslim Brotherhood ‘Project” found by Swiss authorities in the home of Yousef Nada, the Muslim Brotherhood director of the Al-Taqwa bank (which funded al-Qaeda) – snippets from the ‘Project’ document, courtesy of Gatestone – read it all here:
● Networking and coordinating actions between likeminded Islamist organizations
● Avoiding open alliances with known terrorist organizations and individuals to maintain the appearance of “moderation
● Infiltrating and taking over existing Muslim organizations to realign them towards the Muslim Brotherhood’s collective goals
● Using deception to mask the intended goals of Islamist actions, as long as it doesn’t conflict with sharià law
● Building extensive social networks of schools, hospitals and charitable organizations dedicated to Islamist ideals so that contact with the movement for Muslims in the West is constant
● Involving ideologically committed Muslims in democratically-elected institutions on all levels in the West, including government, NGOs, private organizations and labor unions
● Instituting alliances with Western “progressive” organizations that share similar goals
● Inflaming violence and keep Muslims living in the West “in a jihad frame of mind”
● Instigating a constant campaign to incite hatred by Muslims against Jews and rejecting any discussions of conciliation or coexistence with them

Quick Facts:
● The Muslim Brotherhood is the most Influential Islamic movement in the United States and in the World
● There are Muslim Brotherhood affiliates and branches in more than 100 countries worldwide
● The Muslim Brotherhood connected to underground links to the Nazis starting in the 1930s and supported terrorism orchestrated by Haj Amin al-Husseini (the uncle of Yasser Arafat)
The Muslim Brotherhood World Leaders:
Hassan al-Banna: Founder Hassan al-Banna, Ismailiya Suez Canal Zone, 1928.
“The Islamic nation must be fully prepared to fight the tyrants and the enemies of Allah as a prelude to establishing an Islamic state.”
Yasser Arafat: Arafat fought with the Muslim Brotherhood in the 1940s, but it’s unclear whether he was a member at this point.

Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini: During World War II, the Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini, fled to Cairo for asylum. He was an admirer of Adolph Hitler (see picture at left) and the Nazi movement. His Cairo-born nephew was Rahman Abdul Rauf al-Qudwa ,known today as Yasser Arafat, the leader of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO)
After World War II Haj Amin al-Husseini was appointed the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Jerusalem. When Britain was given the task of executing the Mandate for Palestine to form the Israeli Nation, the Mufti of Jerusalem, along with Saudi King Abdullah I, were instrumental in convincing the Brits to hand over large portions of land to just about everyone but Israel. The original mandate for Israel began with designated 124,466 sq. kilometers for the Jewish Homeland, and was finalized with only 14,245 sq. kilometers. Thus the reason for today’s problems for Israel. No security – Arabs everywhere, yet the 14,000 sq kilometers was not, and still is not, acceptable to the Arabs in the area.
Amin Al-Husseini is main organizer of riots. [xiii] He organizes suicide squads against the local authorities. Applies Nazi methodology of “systematic extermination” of any Arab suspected of less than total loyalty to Pan-Islamic vision of Muslim Brotherhood.
Any “non-Islamic” element is a threat to his Pan-Islamic vision.
Many Muslim and Christian Palestinian intellectual leaders and clerics assassinated for protesting Husseini’s Islamic terror.
1936-1938. Murdered by Husseini’s men:
* Sheikh Daoud Ansari ( Imam of Al Aqsa Mosque), Sheikh Ali Nur el Khattib (Al Aqsa Mosque), Sheikh Nusbi Abdal Rahim (Council of Muslim Religious Court), Sheikh Abdul el Badoui (Acre, Palestine), Sheikh El Namouri (Hebron), Nasr El Din Nassr (Mayor of Hebron). Between Feb. 1937 and Nov 1938, Eleven (11) Mukhtars (community leaders) and their entire families slain by Amin al Husseini’s men.
The Palestine riots between 1936-1938 were financially sponsored by NaziGermany [xiv]
Amin Al-Husseini arrives in Rome, where he meets fascist leader Mussolini. The fascist dictator and invador of Ethiopia praises Husseini and his use of the Kur’an to propagate fascism. From Rome, Husseini declares Fatwa-Jihad[xv] against Britain. He creates the notion of Pan-Islamism, borrowed from Nazi Pan-Aryanism, with slogans of Muslim unity to further his cause.
Amin Al Husseini goes to Baghdad and participates in Pro-Nazi Coup in Iraq
Amin Al-Husseini [xvii] in Berlin sits with Adolf Hitler and is active in the decision to exterminate all Jews through the infamous Final Solution.
Hitler was content with deporting the Jews out of Germany. Husseini perceived this as a threat to his stronghold in Palestine and pushed successfully for the extermination of the European Jews. Final Solution will claim six million Jewish lives, including one million children…

The Muslim Brotherhood is the Mother of Hamas:
As the sudden fall of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood reverberates through the Middle East, perhaps nowhere are events being watched more anxiously than in Gaza Strip, the seaside enclave controlled by the Islamist group’s Palestinian spinoff, Hamas…
Seeing its Egyptian mentor swept from power after only one year has unnerved many Hamas leaders, despite the group’s tight political and security control over Gaza.
it’s an abrupt turn of events for Hamas. When Morsi ascended to power a year ago, Hamas leaders were almost giddy, confidently predicting that the Brotherhood’s rise would give them new leverage in confrontations with Israel and Fatah, which is based in the West Bank. They expected that closer ties with a Muslim Brotherhood-controlled Egypt would throw open the Rafah border crossing, end Gaza’s international isolation and keep Israel’s military at bay.
Those hopes never fully materialized, even though relations between Hamas and Egypt improved vastly compared to those seen under former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who viewed Hamas as an enemy. Source: LA Times

● Egyptian President Gamel Abdel Nasser: Nasser was not officially a member of the Brotherhood, but an MB supporter in the 1940s. When a MB member made an assassination attempt on Nasser in 1954, the organization was banned, but clearly still operated in secret in Egypt.
Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak: Mubarak officially banned the Muslim Brotherhood from the country in the 1990s. As with Nasser’s ban, the movement grew and flourished underground, running for political office under the guise of other parties.
● Said Ramadan: July 1953 – Said Ramadan was the son-in-law of founder Hassan al-Banna. The Eisenhower administration was involved in what we might call an “outreach” today. Said Ramadan was at the Eisenhower White House. Said Ramadan made his way into the Eisenhower administration in some manner, along with the Princeton Islam Seminar Delegation in July 1953.
Ramadan with the connivance of Haj Amin Al Husseini spread the political Islamic doctrine of the MB via the World Muslim League. The League was co-founded by the Grand Mufti, al Husseini, and Ramadan. The core of the MB doctrine was the restoration of the Caliphate which had ended with establishment of modern Turkey in 1924. The Caliph would enforce strict Islamic Law in the ummah – the community of believers. Ramadan married one of daughters of Egyptian MB founder Hassan al-Banna, who was assassinated in 1949 by Egyptian authorities under King Farouk. Gamal al-Banna, brother of the MB founder, thought Ramadan could “have been the foreign Minister of the MB. He was an eloquent orator and spoke English. He had many contacts overseas.” Ramadan and the Grand Mufti held a meeting in Karachi during the World Muslim Congress in 1951. Ramadan was then elected as a secretary of the Congress. Ramadan was also with the Grand Mufti in the Jerusalem-based Islamic General Congress. Among his colleagues in the MB was Sayyid Qutb, the MB’s principal modern theorist and author of the tract Milestones. Qutb propounded the view that those who disagreed with these Islamic principals were apostates and therefore subject to a death. Source: New English Review
Yusuf al-Qaradawi
Yusuf al-Qaradawi
Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi: Qaradawi is an Egyptian theologian, host of IslamOnline with a huge following and an author of more than 100 books, including The Muslim Brotherhood: 70 Years in Mission and Education. He is considered the GodFather of the Muslim Brotherhood. He left Egypt in 1961 after King Farouq sentenced him to prison and eventually released him, and Nasser did the same – three times. He returned to Egypt without fanfare a few times always returning to Qatar until Egypt’s 2011 Arab Spring where he led Friday prayers for the first time in decades. Al-Qaradawi is banned from entering the U.S. and the U.K.
Al-Qaradawi vigorously supported Mohamed Morsi’s (Mursi) presidency as late as June 2013 and returned to Cairo to attend demonstrations for the ousted former president. Al-Qaradawi didn’t just support Morsi, he issued a fatwa:
A leading Qatar-based cleric declared in a religious edict, or fatwa, on Saturday that Egyptians should support ousted President Mohamed Morsy of the Muslim Brotherhood and the military should withdraw from the political scene.
Egyptian-born Youssef al-Qaradawi, one of the most prominent Sunni clerics in the Middle East, said in the fatwa posted on his website that the military’s intervention to depose Morsy on Wednesday was against democracy and the constitution.
“Doctor al-Qaradawi issued a fatwa on the necessity to support the elected Egyptian president Mohamed Morsy, and to retain the constitution… and calling on al-Sisi and those with him to withdraw to preserve legitimacy and democracy,” the posting said.
He said many scholars from Cairo’s al-Azhar Islamic university, Egypt’s pre-eminent Muslim institution, agreed with him. Source: Egypt Independent
Today, there are reports that Qatar expelled al-Qaradawi this month, July 2013, but the Brotherhood’s “spiritual leader” says these rumors are not true. Khalid Meshaal, a Hamas leader was also allegedly expelled. Read the story at JoshuaPundit
Hamas: In 1987, Hamas became the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood under the leadership of Yasser Arafat.
Congressman Steny Hoyer (D-MD): 2007 – While in Cairo, Hoyer met with Mohammed Saad el-Katatni twice. At the time, through the guise of independent candidates, The Muslim Brotherhood held one-fifth of the seats in the Egyptian parliament. Katatni was the Brotherhood’s parliament leader.
This encounter with the Muslim Brotherhood, who controlled upwards of one fifth of the seats in Egypt’s Parliament as so-called independents, was not sanctioned by Bush Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice. She had allegedly refused to meet with Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Representatives. Source: New English Review

Tariq Ramadan
Tariq Ramadan
● Tariq Ramadan: Bush administration bans him, Obama administration throws down the welcome mat. April 2010 Tariq Ramadan is the son of Said Ramadan (see above) and the grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna. In 2004, Tariq Ramadan received a tenured position of Henry R. Luce Professor of Religion, Conflict and Peacebuilding at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. Two months later the Bush State Department revoked the visa on grounds of terrorist ties under the “ideological exclusion provision” of the Patriot Act. The university attempted to help Ramadan regain his visa with no success. Ramadan resigned the position in December 2004.
In 2005 Ramadan filed an application for a B Visa which would allow him to be booked as speaker in the U.S. The Government didn’t respond so the ACLU and the New York Civil Liberties Union filed suit on behalf of three organizations wanting some kind of contact with Ramadan. The three were the American Academy of Religion, the American Association of University Professors and the PEN America Center.
In September 2006, the Government officially denied the application. The State Department issued a statement saying the denial was based on Ramadan “providing material support to a terrorist organization,” which referred to donations to two charities, The Committee for Charity and Support for Palestinians. Both were designated as terrorist funding organizations by the U.S. Treasury. The decision was more complicated (First Amendment and National Security) than what I have provided here. Read more at the New York Times.
In 2007 the ACLU took the matter back to court. In July 2009 (six months after Obama’s swearing-in) a U.S. Federal Appeals Court reversed the ruling.
In January 2010 Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lifted the ban on Tariq Ramadan’s presence on American soil. By 2010, America was no longer under the threat of “terrorism.” Tariq Ramadan came to the U.S. Most of the above concerning Tariq Ramadan comes from Wikipedia.
Tariq Ramadan was accused of bringing Euro-Islam to the U.S., which included Euro-Leftism. Look how der Spiegel Online portrayed him:
…[his] appearance alone is enough to add a touch of brilliance to this gloomy conference room. Smiling here and nodding there, the “esteemed guest” strides up to the podium with the confidence of an entertainer who has grown accustomed to success. Tariq Ramadan knows how to win people over.
Many of the veteran social workers have an almost enraptured expression on their faces as they look up at the tall, thin man. With his striking features and dark well-trimmed beard, his sand-colored suit with its elegant casualness, the unbuttoned collar of his bright yellow shirt and his slightly dark complexion, Ramadan resembles a Latino singer….
In effect, Ramadan is something of a modern-day itinerant preacher. His mission is to boost the self-confidence of Europe’s Muslims and to explain his vision of a “European Islam” to Europe’s Christian elite. The new brand of faith which, according to Ramadan, “is currently taking shape among European Muslims with Islamic-European culture” aims to reconcile Western values with the teachings of Islam. This “Euro-Islam” has allowed Ramadan to win friends among immigrant children and proponents of interreligious dialogue — and make enemies among right-wing nationalists and hardline Islamists.
Discover the Networks has another view:
But to Arabic-speaking audiences, he vents his deep-seated hatred of the West and his endorsement of Wahhabism, the most extreme form of Islam. Moreover, Ramadan has numerous connections to fundamentalist Islamic militants and is suspected by U.S. intelligence agencies of maintaining ties with the terrorist group al Qaeda.
The bottom line: Tariq Ramada, currently a Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies in the Faculty of Oriental Studies at Oxford University, is the grandson of Hassan al-Banna who advocated for violence and all methods that would spread Islam across the globe, and he is the son of Said Ramadan (the son-in-law of al-Banna) who “led the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the 1950s and then was exiled from Egypt to Switzerland where Tariq was born in September 1962.”
Atlas Shrugs provides a transcript of Tariq Ramadan speaking in Dallas at a fundraiser for the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), asking young Muslims to “colonize” the U.S.
It should be us, with our understanding of Islam, our principles, colonizing positively the United States of America.
We don’t want the West to be destructed. What we want is the West to be reformed.
The Muslim Brotherhood during the Presidency of Mohamed Morsi (Mursi): With the downfall of Hosni Mubarak and the ascendency of Morsi, a majority of Egypt’s Parlimentary seats went to the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party.
● CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations): In 2007 during the Holy Land trials, FBI Agent Lara Burns testified that CAIR is listed among affiliated members of the Muslim Brotherhood and specifically the Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee.
Burns also said that both Omar Ahmed and Nihad Awad, CAIR co-founders who today serve as CAIR’s chairman emeritus and executive director, respectively, were also listed as individual members the Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee in America.
Awad and Ahmed are further connected to the Palestine Committee based on their positions as president and public relations director of the IAP, a Hamas front group that was responsible for the dissemination of propaganda, and has since been closed down as a result of a multi-million dollar civil judgment in a trial involving the murder of an American teenager by HAMAS terrorists.
CAIR, which touts itself as America’s premier Muslim civil rights organization, was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial. Burns’ testimony so far has placed both Ahmed and Awad at a 1993 Philadelphia meeting where the HAMAS members and supporters discussed a strategy to kill the Oslo Peace Accords, which threatened to marginalize HAMAS. The group also discussed ways to improve HAMAS fundraising in America. Source: Investigative Project
When you think of the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S., you are also thinking of CAIR, whether you realize it or not.
● Rashad Hussein: 2009 Appointed to the White House Counsel’s Office and has advised the Administration on policy issues related to the Muslim world. Currently the U.S. Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) consisting of 52 Islamic Nations – the second largest inter-governmental body in the United Nations. American-born in Wyoming, raised in Plano, Texas. Hussein is a Muslim of Indian origin. Has served in the White House Counsel’s Office .
The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Reporttook a look at Hussain’s official biography and found several concerning affiliations. The first is that in October 2000, Hussain spoke at a conference sponsored by the Association of Muslim Social Scientists, which was listed in an internal Muslim Brotherhood document as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends,” and the Prince Alwaleed Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding of Georgetown University, which receives Saudi funding and is directed by prominent Muslim Brotherhood advocate, John Esposito.
In September 2004, Hussain played a role in the Muslim Students Association’s annual conference, which was founded by Muslim Brotherhood in 1963 and is also listed as one the group’s fronts in its own documents.
Since then, many of its nearly 600 college chapters have engaged inextremism and the group closely collaborates with the other Brotherhood fronts. For example, MSA was part of an umbrella organization called the American Muslim Taskforce that led a campaign against the FBI’s use of informants in mosques and accused the agency of “anti-Muslim activity.” Several Brotherhood affiliates are in this coalition including the Muslim-American Society, the Islamic Circle of North America, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Public Affairs Council and the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
At this conference, Hussain spoke alongside the daughter of Professor Sami Al-Arian, who was convicted of being a key leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group and later admitted to being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hussain also defended Al-Arian and described his prosecution as being a “politically-motivated persecution.” The network of Brotherhood-affiliated groups have consistently been on his side throughout the entire ordeal and celebrated his release.
Interestingly, the story in The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs that quoted Hussain’s defense of Al-Arian has been altered since its original publication. CNSNews.comreports that the quote was removed “sometime after October 2007” and that the reporter who wrote the article “expressed surprise but said she no longer worked at WRMEA and could not explain the edit.”
Last Mayn[2010], Hussain spoke at a conference sponsored by several Brotherhood affiliates, including the Muslim Public Affairs Council, an organization whose extremism has been catalogued in a series by The Investigative Project on Terrorism, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations. The latter was listed by the federal government in 2007 as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the terrorism financing trial of The Holy Land Foundation, another Muslim Brotherhood front that was found to be financing Hamas. Its founders are former officials at the Islamic Association of Palestine, a Brotherhood front shut down for supporting Hamas and are said by the FBI to be members of the Brotherhood’s “Palestine Committee” in the United States.

● Dalia Mogahed: 2009 – Appointed by Obama to serve on the Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Has stated publicly that Sharia Law is seen by most Muslim women as a form of “gender justice.” Born in Cairo, Egypt, came to the U.S. at age five (5). She is a naturalized citizen.
In a 2007 speech in Aspen, Colorado, Mogahed said that terrorists try “to exploit broadly felt legitimate grievances” in order to gain new recruits. According to the Investigative Project on Terrorism, “She also appeared to suggest that the Muslim Brotherhood might be a peaceful alternative to jihadists.”
In a 2007 interview on Link Television, Mogahed was asked to comment on the harsh punishments (like stonings, canings, and dismemberment) associated with Sharia Law. She replied that Muslims generally tend to view Sharia as a framework for achieving “a more just society,” “protection of human rights,” and “rule of law.”
Mogahed has consistently defended Islamist organizations like theCouncil on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), both of which have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Source: Discover the Networks
● Congressman Keith Ellison (D-Minn): Keith Ellison was the first Muslim elected to Congress has appeared at CAIR fundraisers, was most unhappy that the U.S. House of Representatives called for CAIR investigations, called American’s fears of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt a “scarecrow.” The Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Muslim American Society of Minnesota paid for Ellison to travel to Mecca for the Hajj – a two-week trip costing in excess of $13,000.
Congressman Andre Carson (D-IN): Carson is the second Muslim elected to Congress. He has stated publicly that America needs to look to the Muslim method of educating children:
American will never tap into educational innovation and enguinuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrasses, in our schools where innovation is encouraged, WHERE THE FOUNDATION IS THE KORAN, and that model that we are pushing in our schools meets the multiple needs of students.
Most of us are visual learners. Some of us are auditory learners, we learn by hearing. Many of us are kinesthetic learners. We learn by doing, touching and feeling.
I have found, as my wife is a principal, we have a 5-year old daughter, Saleema, that we need an educational model that is current, that meets the need of our students. America must understand that she needs Muslims. ~ Andre Carson
The Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR are working diligently in our our schools. The subject is too big to cover here. Check out the Stop The Madrassa: A Community Coalition website for detail.

Below are my updates to the IBD timeline quoted above:
Summer 2012: Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) confronts Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano about her appointment of Mohamed Elibiary to her Homeland Security Advisory Council. With the job comes a top secret security clearance. Elibiary is a Texas-based Islamic cleric. Gohmert alleges that Elibiary used his security clearance to download classified information about Texas Governor Rick Perry during the 2012 election period and that Elibiary “shopped” the information to the media. Elibiary supposedly downloaded the information to his personal computer. Napolitano’s only answer is that the information was not classified (apparently she can decided for the state of Texas what information is classified and what is not) and refused to address the fact that his security clearance was utilized for his own personal computer.
Elibiary formed the Freedom and Justice Foundation (the Muslim Brotherhood political wing in Egypt is the Freedom and Justice Party) and attempted to receive a 501(3)(3) status for it, which was denied.
● 2011 after Morsi is elected President: Rashad Bayoumi, Deputy to Saad Katatni who led the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party:
…no matter what the people want, the “Brotherhood” will never “sit down” with Israel. “We will not deal with Israelis by any means,” he [Bayoumi] said. Source.
Abdullah bin Bayyah
Abdullah bin Bayyah
June 2013: The White House hosts Sheikh Abdullah bin Bayyah seeking his advice on Syria. Bayyah is the vice-president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), serving under founder Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who is banned from entering the U.S. and the U.K. He can get into the White House, you and/or your child’s classroom cannot.
July 2013: Kevin McCullough writing at Townhall breaks a document from the Libyan Government, and specifically from the office of Libyan Director of National Security detailing six (6) arrests of Egyptians in the murders of four (4) Americans in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 – US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, IT officer Sean Smith and two former Navy SEALs who came to their aid: Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. The Muslim Brotherhood and Mohamed Morsi (Mursi) are named.
Six confessions from those arrested at the scene–all of them Egyptian–and all connected to the U.S. terror watch listed group Ansar al-Sharia.
Concerning the most important claim of the Libyan memo, Raymond Ibrahim, (an American research librarian, translator, and author, whose focus is Arabic history, language, and current events) indicates that “during interrogations, these Egyptian jihadi cell members ‘confessed to very serious and important information concerning the financial sources of the group and the planners of the event and the storming and burning of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi…. And among the more prominent figures whose names were mentioned by cell members during confessions: Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi…’”…
If in fact Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was even remotely involved, tacitly aware, or even seen giving nodding approval, why on earth did President Obama turn around and deliver 16 fighter jets and 200 tanks to the Egyptian regime roughly three months later?
Why was Morsi invited to the White House in September 2012? Then invited for December 5, 2012? Then February 2013, then March? Why does his visit get continually postponed as though the White House seems to know something about him and his visit that they are not comfortable with?
Why was the President so thoroughly unreachable when the attack took place, and for a period of six to eight hours, incapable of accounting for where he was as the worst of it played out?
Why did Hillary Clinton give her support to the Brotherhood’s pet project at the United Nations–to declare blasphemy of Islam a global crime?
Why did the Obama White House and the National Security Council meet with and host a Muslim Brotherhood radical on June 13, 2013? (Who is the personal assistant to a terrorist so extreme his presence is not even allowed in the U.S.?) And only confess to it when it finally is reported by the press?
And why does the current administration have as many as a half dozen mid to upper level appointees that have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood–either directly or through Brotherhood member organizations?
As of today, I’ve seen no major news sources talking about Morsi and the Brotherhood possibly involved in the deaths in Benghazi – certainly not about the document referenced or the translation by an American. Wouldn’t it be a huge blow to the U.S. if Mohamed Morsi (Mursi) played a part in Benghazi September 11, 2012? Yes it would be huge…and easily verifiable if the media decides to do so.
● A side-note to the story of Ambassador Chris Stevens is the possibility that the plan for Benghazi was a kidnapping-gone-wrong. The idea was to exchange Ambassador Stevens for the Blind Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, now a prisoner of the U.S., in the U.S., for orchestrating the first World Trade Center Bombings in 1993. Some suggestions that security in Benghazi on that fateful night was purposefully lessened. Afterall, it was September 11th, and afterall, the State Department was paying for the extra security unit that was recalled by Hillary Clinton.
July 2013: Mohammed ElBaradei, former U.N. Chairman of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) praises Mohamed Morsi and defended the Muslim Brotherhood during the Arab Spring. Fox News’ Homeland Security Correspondent Catherine Herridge says on-air, after Morsi is deposed, that ElBaradei may be a possible presidential candidate and that ElBaradei is “respected” in the U.S. ElBaradei as IAEA Chief looked the other way for years and allowed Iran to reach the nuclear zenith they are approaching today. Rumors are that ElBaradei may be appointed Egypt’s Vice President or a “Deputy” to the new President. During the past week’s conflicts in Egypt, Elibiary showed clear preference for the Muslim Brotherhood through a series of Tweets – watch Rep. Gohmert get fired-up in his exchange with Napolitano here. Read more about Elibiary at Discover the Networks.
● A Canadian Muslim’s View of the Obama Administration: Tarek Fatah, a Muslim Liberal Democrat Marxist, who worked and campaigned for Barack Obama, made the following remarks at Ideacity in Canada with an audience of thousands:
…“the religion of Islam is being used as a tool by a fascist force.”
“Instead of bringing victory over the fascist forces of the Muslim Brotherhood, we now recognize that their infiltration is right up to the American White House, but we can’t say that.”
“Today we are fighting another idea of Islamo-fascism that has shut our mouths and we can’t speak because we’re too scared that someone may turn around and call us a racist. And mind you, everyday as I speak, a few dozen Muslims would have been killed by now by these Jihadi’s.”…
“Please understand that there is a distinction between Islam as a faith which, along with every other religion, has its own problems, and “Islamism,” which is an ideology, a political ideology, that says that Western Civilization has to be destroyed.”
“The books that are distributed at Eaton Centre and the Dundas Square clearly state by the founders of the Muslim Brotherhood that all Western countries have to be destroyed.” Read more about Tarek Fatah (very interesting) at Noisy Room
