Brewer on 'Gang of 8' Bill – Must See Video

Editor’s Note – At over 800 pages in the Senate Immigration Bill, are we not setting ourselves up for failure again? 800 pages? That harkens of another boondogle called PPACA or better known as ObameCare which was over 2,700 pages. Does anyone really read all of this? Listen to Governor Brewer below. There are three videos.

We need to understand what is really at stake here. The problem is not solely about Mexicans looking for a better life, its also about the Tsarnaev types and the thousands who have the same intentions – not to assimilate, just to arrive here and do their own deeds for their own ends.

There are at least 7,518 reasons to get the U.S.-Mexican border under control. That equals the number of aliens apprehended in fiscal year 2011 from the four nations that federal officials label “state sponsors of terrorism” plus 10 “countries of interest.”

Since January 2010, those flying into the United States via these 14 nations face enhanced screening. As the Transportation Security Administration announced at the time: “Effective aviation security must begin beyond our borders.” U.S. national security merits at least that much vigilance on our borders.

The roaring immigration-reform debate largely addresses Hispanic aliens who illegally cross the border. Far more worrisome, however, are the thousands who break into the United States from countries “where we have concerns, particularly about al-Qaida affiliates,” a top State Department official told CNN.

Gov. Brewer – AZ talks Border Security Issues Ignored by Senate Immigration Bill

by DAVID WEBB – Breitbart

The “Gang of” 8 grand immigration proposal, over 800 pages, is written by members of the same body that has failed to address the problem of meaningful immigration reform for over 30 years.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) stated that he wanted the 92 other members to join in this important debate. In the House of Representatives in particular, the silence of the GOP leadership is deafening.

Look at what is missing in this process: transparency; experts on many aspects of immigration reform; and law enforcement agencies involved in dealing with the problems on the ground. The GOP-led House of Representatives has promised regular order. How much transparency we will see from the Senate is undetermined. Most of all, valuable input from relevant Governors are left out of the equation.

Has the “Gang of 8” ever consulted border state governors like Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona?

A transparent public discussion is required. In 1986 we had outright amnesty and the promised enforcement of a secure border. Lack of promised enforcement by Democrats got us to this point with a significantly larger problem. Are we creating de facto amnesty again with a rushed comprehensive bill over incremental and combined approaches to the problem?

With America’s burgeoning Hispanic population–the largest block of illegal immigrants–more emphasis seems to be placed on who will vote en masse for which party over necessary solutions for the long-term future of this country. It is a bitter pill to take, with the term “lawful presence” in its prescription.

The recent terror attacks in Boston renewed calls from both Republicans and Democrats in the “Gang of 8” for immediate immigration reform. Border security is key, as Arizona Governor Jan Brewer recently stated in my American Forum.

Governor Brewer made the case for working with residents that live along the border, state police, sheriffs and other local law enforcement agencies. There is also the issue of sending the National Guard for additional resources.

This is not a numbers issue; it is a human issue. We have citizens in constant danger along our southern border. There are areas where a fence is necessary and could prove to be effective. The Obama Administration restricts border patrol activity on federal lands, and the cartels, human traffickers, illegal aliens who break our law by crossing the southern border are not known for their obedience to the law. They cross onto federal land with impunity, and the proper authorities are not allowed to pursue.

The “Gang of 8” proposal so far leaves more questions to be answered than solutions offered. Solutions must include standards, methods to achieve those standards, and metrics to measure their effectiveness. Long-term concerns, such as those expressed by Governor Brewer, much less solutions, are largely cast aside.

In the name of Tolerance – Pro-Islam, anti-Christian/Judaism

By Scott W. Winchell

We all have been reading that the Obama administration has removed all references to Islam, especially terrorism and Jihadists from any governmental documents, especially law enforcement and military training manuals. Some think now that this may have impacted investigations like that performed on the Tsarnaevs.

Not knowing the enemies’ motivations, which leaves a gaping hole in understanding meant that Jihadism was not taught and could have reduced the importance of information being relayed to US officials. Congressman Louie Gomert R-Texas said:

But what kind of interview must that have been of the guy who was going to blow off arms and legs and kill a child and who had dreams of killing so many more. What kind of interview must that have been when you can’t use the word jihad, you can’t talk about his Muslim faith? Did they even bring up Tamerlan’s Muslim faith in that interview? […] Is it any wonder that the FBI came away from their interviews and said, ‘We don’t find any problems?’ Well, I guess not. […] What kind of interviews must those have been when you can’t use the terms that let you get to the bottom of what may be a plot to kill people down the road? There’s no problem in the Justice Department, there is a problem with leadership that will not let them do their job. And it needs to change.

Covering for Islam

But it gets worse. It appears that the default mindset at the DoJ is to protect Muslims more than seeking to investigate leads that may lead to other acts of terror, regardless of what some of them do. In fact, yesterday, Eric Holder announced Monday that not only would they be seeking to hold those who commit such acts like that in Boston accountable, he chose to spend even more time telling the world how his department would go out of their way to prosecute anyone who lashes back against Islam in the wake of Boston. From Politico:

Attorney General Eric Holder declared Monday that the Justice Department is on the lookout for acts of violence or discrimination that signal a backlash to the Boston Marathon bombings earlier this month in which three people were killed and scores wounded.

“Our investigation into this matter remains ongoing – and I want to assure you that my colleagues and I are determined to hold accountable, to the fullest extent of the law, all of those who were responsible for this attack,” Holder said, according to the prepared text of a speech delivered Monday to the Anti-Defamation League. “But I also want to make clear that – just as we will pursue relentlessly anyone who would target our people or attempt to terrorize our cities – the Justice Department is firmly committed to protecting innocent people against misguided acts of retaliation.”

Compounding this mindset, while at an ADL event, Holder was more concerned with anti-Muslim activities like that which occurred in Tennessee than we was about anti-antisemitism on Jews despite the fact that his feared backlash was completely unfounded:

But if Holder’s DOJ were as ruthless and prolific in going after Muslim terrorists the way they are in defending Muslims, the Boston marathon massacre would never have happened. The backlash against Muslims that Holder and his Islamist pals were whining about never happened. Even the Islamist groups have been forced to admit that.

Ibrahim Hooper of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which monitors bias and hate crimes against Muslims, said his organization has seen no uptick in reports of harassment, assaults or damage to mosques since the April 15 bombings.

Tellingly Holder failed to mention a single specific incident or act of Anti-Semitism that the DOJ dealt with despite the fact that Jews are ten times more likely to be the victims of hate crimes than Muslims.

‘Tolerance Policy’ and anti-Christianity/Judaism in Government/Military

With all of this cover for Saudis (The ‘Saudi Privilege) after Boston, unfounded fears of backlashes on Muslims, and the removal of referrences to Jihad in government publications, now they are actively trying to erase Christianity from the government and military as well:

From “Pentagon Recruits Anti-Christian Extremist To Help Craft Tolerance Policy”, Frank Camp at Last Resistance writes:

The Pentagon, under the Obama administration, is developing new policies regarding religious tolerance in the military. They could have devised a plan that would really make a difference; help eliminate needless bigotry and unpleasantness from the military. They could have taken a reasoned and balanced approach; bringing in multiple people with opposing views, to really reach an understanding as to how they should proceed. Of course, they did not do that. Instead, they brought in a man named Mikey Weinstein.

(…)

On April 16th, in an article written for The Huffington Post, Mikey Weinstein says some pretty incredible things. He takes a machete to Christians and Christianity in general; rather happily slicing his way through the Christian faith and those who practice it. The following is an excerpt. It’s a bit long, but worth the read:

“Ladies and Gentlemen, let me tell you of monsters and monstrous wrongs. And let me tell you what these bloody monsters thrive on…I founded the…Military Religious Freedom Foundation to do one thing: fight those monsters who would tear down the Constitutionally-mandated wall separating church and state in the technologically most lethal entity ever created by humankind, the U.S. military…Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces…These days, when ANYone attempts to bravely stand up against virulent religious oppression, these monstrosities cry out alligator tears in overflowing torrents and scream that it is, in fact, THEY who are the dispossessed, bereft and oppressed. C’mon, really, you pitiable unconstitutional carpetbaggers? … Please, I beseech you! Let us call these ignoble actions what they are: the senseless and cowardly squallings of human monsters…Queasy with the bright and promising lights of the cultural realities of the present day, those evil, fundamentalist Christian creatures and their spiritual heirs have taken refuge behind flimsy, well-worn, gauze-like euphemistic facades such as ‘family values’ and ‘religious liberty.’”

This is not isolated, nor is as well reported, but read here on what the military is now making its personnel do, they must remove references that a scope manufacturer has etched into the equipment they use:

Read what Todd Starnes reports in a commentary piece published by Fox News:

The U.S. Army is directing troops to remove a Bible inscription that a vendor etched into the serial numbers of weapon scopes, Fox News has learned. Soldiers at Fort Wainwright in Alaska told Fox News they received a directive to turn in their scopes so the Bible references could be removed.

The scopes were made by Trijicon and referenced New Testament passages in John 8:12 and Second Corinthians 4:6. The verses appeared at the end of the scope serial numbers – “JN8:12” and “2COR4:6.” “The biblical verse (JN8:12) must be removed utilizing a Dremel type tool and then painted black,” read instructions on how to remedy the matter.

After the letters and numbers were scraped off, soldiers were directed to use apply black paint to ensure the verses were totally covered. “The vendor etched those inscriptions on scopes without the Army’s approval,” Army spokesman Matthew Bourke told Fox in a written statement. “Consequently, the modified scopes did not meet the requirement under which the contract was executed.”

Bourke said the vendor agreed to remove all Bible references on future deliveries. “Some of these scopes had already been fielded,” Bourke explained. “Corrective measures were taken to remove inscriptions during the RESET/PRESET process in order to avoid a disruption in combat operations.”

A similar issue came to light during a 2010 investigation by ABC News. At the time the Army and Marine Corps said they were unaware of the biblical markings.

Trijicon did not return phone calls seeking comment. A company spokesman told ABC News in 2010 that the inscriptions had always been on the sights and there was nothing wrong or illegal with including them.The company told ABC they believed the issue had been raised by a group that is “not Christian.”

One of the Fort Wainwright soldiers who received the order to remove the inscription told Fox News that hardly anyone was aware of the religious reference.“It blows my mind,” the solider said. “It doesn’t help the Army do its mission to take off a biblical reference.”

The soldier, who is a Christian, said he had to comply so “someone doesn’t get offended.”“We have classes on equal opportunity – things that are clearly irrelevant to our mission – which is to kill the enemy.”

Again, you be the judge America, but how demoralizing for the troops. In totality – there is a war on all non-Muslim faiths and promotion of all that are Islamic or follow the Church of Global Warming/Man-made climate change..

SPLC "Hate List" – Hate list created by haters is 'Hate-ism'

By SUA Staff – ‘Hate-ism’! Haters create a list of hate, how ironic. Over the past few years, we at SUA have wondered why so many of our friends have been placed on the Southern Poverty Law Center‘s “Haters List”. (SPLC) Truth be told, we really do not wonder, the SPLC is a hate-group. They group legitimate voices from the right with detestable types who are true haters – skinheads, KKK (Democrat created group) and the like.

As the author of the following article points out, anyone who dares tell the truth about Islam, defying the political correct left’s definitions, designations, and labeling, become targets to have their 1st amendment’s rights assailed or attempt to reduce their ability to be heard and/or respected. A sure way to get on the list, especially in these heady days, is to tell the truth about Islam and its terrorism tendencies.

However, a wake-up call hit us in Boston last week and a lot of new voices are asking about a lot of things that makes the SPLC a very twitchy and nervous group. A lot of new people are wondering aloud what the aim of Islam really is, and how it will affect us all. Many are coming late to the table but we welcome all newcomers, its time for the rest of America to learn truth and speak it to such haters. We are happy to share historical facts, no matter how grizzly and non-PC many on the left think we and they are.

Groups and individuals like the SPLC try to convince people that what conservatives say and do is to be suspect at best, detestable at worst, and therefore we are to be assailed as ‘haters’. Of course we know all about the George Soros financed tactics, but we at SUA had another question, why are we not also labeled on the SPLC ‘Hate List’ with our friends? After all, we share and spread the truthful views and voice of our fellow conservatives and truth tellers on their list, so why not brand us as well like they do Pam Geller. Robert Spencer, and Frank Gaffney?

We are outraged at the discrimination! This smacks of “hate-ism”.

Its become something of ‘badge of merit/courage’ to be included on this phony and transparently ridiculous, leftist group’s anti-American tactic to create their hate list so we are sad they do not hate us as much. They are not treating people equally and we think we should sue to get on the list. ‘Hate-ism’, ‘hate-ists’!

The SPLC haters make a list of haters – but not very well, like everything else they do – always too clever by half and just as inept and un-American. SUA wants all its allies and fellow conservatives to request to be added to their list. We think all like-minded conservative groups should send a letter to the SPLC and demand to know why they are only hating certain people or groups and not hating us all equally when we are doing and saying the same thing.

‘Hate-ism’ smacks of racism not to be hated equally; they have created a glass-ceiling – we demand equal hate status.

Southern Poverty Law Center Provides Cover for Jihadist Apologists

By Lee Stranahan at Breitbart

The Southern Poverty Law Center has taken a lead role in the institutional left’s attempt to unilaterally intellectually disarm America on the issue of Islamic terrorism. In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing, it’s worth looking at how the group has attempted to silence critics of Islamic extremism, often by poisoning the well to discredit any examination of the possible dangers posed by Islamists.

The SPLC was started over forty years ago as a legitimate civil rights organization to combat the violent racist actions of groups like the Ku Klux Klan, but has become part of the vast web of organizations–many funded by George Soros’s Open Society Institute–that work together to smear conservative voices in order to advance a leftist agenda.

One way to think of the institutional left is as a body where different organs perform different functions but all function together to form a whole; your stomach signals your brain that it wants food, so your feet walk you to the fridge, your hand opens the door, and so on. With the institutional left, many different groups work in concert to promote the wider agenda of radicals, such as diminishing America’s security.

The role that the Southern Poverty Law Center plays is to be an “objective” source to brand conservative entities as “hate groups” for the purpose of stopping debate and discussion on important issues. The well-heeled SPLC–with financial reserves of over $200 million–does this through their Hate Watch blog and a quarterly magazine but, more ominously, by also reporting their findings directly to the FBI.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has explicitly targeted people like Atlas Shrugs blogger Pam Geller, author Robert Spencer, 60s radical-turned-conservative David Horowitz, and the Center for Security Policy’s Frank Gaffney. By lumping these authors and speakers in with violent groups like the Aryan Brotherhood or Ku Klux Klan and then reporting them to law enforcement as “hate groups,” the SLPC is trying to create a chilling effect on investigation into what we’ve learned time and again are legitimate dangers.

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s impact is magnified because other institutional left groups pick up on the SPLC’s reports and regurgitate them; these circular references are then used to give the reports legitimacy. First, let’s look at a few examples of the intimidation campaign that the group runs.

In their Intelligence Files section, the SPLC has a section on Anti-Muslim Groups (complete with a photo of Pam Geller) where they claim:

Muslims are depicted as a fifth column intent on undermining and eventually replacing American democracy and Western civilization with Islamic despotism. Anti-Muslim hate groups allege that Muslims are trying to subvert the rule of law by imposing on Americans their own Islamic legal system, Shariah law.

The Southern Poverty Law Center clearly wants to paint anti-jihadists as kooky, but that allegation might hold more water were it not for a memorandum introduced at trial by the U.S. government in the 2007 conviction of five organizers of what was (at the time) America’s largest Islamic charity, the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation, on charges of sending millions of dollars to terrorist organization Hamas.

The document is called An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America, and it reads in part:

The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Proecess” with all the word means. The Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood) must understand 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 and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.

Actually, just the mere fact that organizers of the largest Islamic charity in the United States were convicted of funneling millions of dollars to overseas Islamic terror groups might give one pause but, to the Southern Poverty Law Center, pointing out things like that can get you labeled as a hate group.

In the 2011 SPLC article “Jihad On Islam,” they continue to make the case that only right-wing extremists are concerned about the stated intentions of Islamists:

Like the communists that an earlier generation believed to be hiding behind every rock, infiltrated “Islamist” operatives today are said to be diabolically preparing for a forcible takeover.

You’ll note the use of the word “Islamist” in scare quotes; apparently even the use of the word Islamist is enough to remove one from the realm of serious intellectual consideration. Never mind the fact that the word “Islamist” is used around the world by major newspapers and, more importantly, by Islamists themselves. It’s actually used to differentiate Muslims who seek to establish an Islamic state.

The SPLC’s efforts are Orwellian. Like the attempt to manipulate the language of immigration by removing the term “illegal alien” from accepted use, if leftist groups can remove the word Islamist from politically correct vocabulary, they have defined Islamic extremism out of existence. These campaigns to reframe the debate are an important part of the institutional left’s arsenal of intellectual dirty tricks.

The SPLC doesn’t work on its own, however. Its vague conclusions and targeted smears are amplified by other Soros-funded groups, such as Media Matters for America. Since the Marathon bombing, these coordinated attacks have kicked into overdrive.

For example, in the recent “In The Wake Of Boston Marathon Attack, Fox Turned To Anti-Islam Commentators” hit piece from Media Matters, they quote their cousin organization, the Southern Poverty Law Center, a number of times as proof.

SLPC: Frank Gaffney Is “The Anti-Muslim Movement’s Most Paranoid Propagandist.” A Southern Poverty Law Center (SLPC) profile of Frank Gaffney stated that “Gaffney seems to have snapped” at some point in the decades since his service in the Pentagon and founding of the “hawkish but once-respectable” Center for Security Policy (CSP). In recent years, Gaffney has been the key proponent of the conspiracy theory alleging that the Muslim Brotherhood is working toward a U.S. government takeover…

SPLC: Rep. King’s American Muslim Radicalization Hearings Were “Loathsome.” A March 8, 2011 Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) blog post, recounted how Rep. Peter Kings (R-NY) American Muslim radicalization hearings were “loathsome,” concluding that “[t]he reality is that King’s hearing are about demonizing Muslims, and they are, unfortunately, very likely to accomplish that goal.” [Southern Poverty Law Center, 3/8/11]…

SPLC: Gabriel Is “Prone To Sweeping Generalizations And Exaggerations.” A Summer 2011 Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) Intelligence Report profile of Gabriel described her as being “prone to sweeping generalizations” about Islam…

SPLC: Gabriel Has Conflated Muslims With Terrorists. In the Fall 2011 edition of its Intelligence Report, the SPLC described how Gabriel’s organization, ACT! for America, was attempting to moderate its language. The article described Gabriel’s penchant for conflating Muslims and terrorists:

That’s just in one Media Matters for America article. They brand critics of radical Islam as cranks, kooks, and people to be ignored. It must be true since the SLPC said so.

The tactics of institutional leftist organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center are crude and predictable, but in the wake of the Boston Marathon and Benghazi, they are increasingly dangerous. The left’s goal is to silence voices like Geller, Gaffney, Spencer, and Horowitz, not because they are wrong about the threat posed by Islamic extremism, but to keep their liberal audience in the dark about just how right they are.

Stressed and Depressed – America Suffers

Americans Snapping by the Millions

Exclusive: David Kupelian reveals record fear, stress, suicide – and inspired way out

By David Kupelian at WND

Terrorism. Chaos. Fear of the future. In the age of Obama, America is undergoing a “fundamental transformation” – that much everyone knows.

But what few seem to realize about this transformation is that the sheer stress of living in today’s America is driving tens of millions to the point of illness, depression and self-destruction. Consider the following trends:

  • Incredibly, 11 percent of all Americans aged 12 and older are currently taking SSRI antidepressants – those highly controversial, mood-altering psychiatric drugs with the FDA’s “suicidality” warning label and alarming correlation with school shooters. Women are especially prone to depression, with a stunning 23 percent of all American women in their 40s and 50s – almost one in four – now taking antidepressants, according to a major study by the CDC;

By the way, things are no better over the pond – and may be worse, according to one major study that concluded almost 40 percent of Europeans are plagued by mental illness.

Note: This report is is excerpted from the April 2013 issue of WND’s acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, “STRESSED AND DEPRESSED: The unreported health crisis of the Obama era.”

What on earth is going on? Why isn’t medical science – and for that matter all of our incredible scientific and technological innovations in every area of life – reducing our stress and lightening our load? Why doesn’t the almost-magical availability of the world’s accumulated knowledge, thanks to the Internet, make us more enlightened and happy? Why is it that, instead, more and more of us are so stressed out as to be on a collision course with illness, misery, tragedy and death?

Most important, what can we do to reverse course? Fortunately, amazingly effective help is available – but more on that later.

‘He wants people to snap’

“Life is difficult,” wrote psychiatrist M. Scott Peck at the outset of his international best-seller, “The Road Less Traveled.” Stress, difficulties, disappointments, accidents, disease, misfortune, cruelty, betrayal – they’re unavoidable in this life.

Yet, during eras when society and families are stable, unified and fundamentally decent and moral – as, say, America during the 1950s – the stress level for each person is minimized, or at least not compounded by a perverse society. Conversely, when – as is the case today – we have widespread family breakdown, a depraved culture that mocks traditional moral values, a chaotic economy and disintegrating monetary system and a power-mad government dominated by demagogues and sociopaths, the normal stresses of life are greatly multiplied.

Thus it has come to pass that America, long the hope of the world, has grown increasingly dispirited and angry, which in turn breeds anxiety, fear, confusion, hopelessness and depression.

After all, let’s face the hard facts: We just re-elected perhaps the worst president in history, someone manifestly obsessed with dismantling traditional, free-market capitalist America and transforming it into a socialist nanny state. That in itself is highly stressful – at least for the roughly half the population that still understands socialism always leads to a profound loss of freedom and prosperity.

Then there’s today’s relentless economic pressures: high unemployment (the actual rate is at least double that of the “official” government rate), foreclosures and bankruptcies, a stagnant growth rate, 11,000 new people signing up for food stamps every single day, rising taxes for the entire middle class whose net worth is simultaneously shrinking, ever-higher prices for food, gas and other essentials – and overshadowing it all, a galactic national debt burden, courtesy of a wildly out-of-control government unrestrained by either the Constitution or common sense.

That, too, is very stressful. Top it all off with an administration continually abusing the public for the sake of enlarging and consolidating its political power – for instance, by purposely making the “sequester” cuts hurt Americans, even our active-duty soldiers, as much as possible.

Make no mistake: This sort of stress on Americans is not only intentional on the part of Team Obama – it is strategic. Remember, these people are revolutionaries (that is, engaged in “bringing about a major or fundamental change,” as Merriam-Webster puts it) and utterly committed to replacing one societal structure – America’s constitutional, limited-government, free-enterprise system – with another – a socialist, wealth-redistributionist system run by an all-powerful government.

Such a radical change cannot be accomplished while Americans are calm, happy, content and grateful for their blessings. Citizens must be unhappy and stressed out. Indeed, widespread popular discontent has always been the required fuel for leftist transformation.

Just reading a few pages into Saul Alinsky’s notorious “Rules for Radicals,” one encounters repeated confirmation that the very key to radical “change” is keeping the populace angry, encouraging their grievances, stoking their resentments and making sure they are continually upset. That is the primary psychological dynamic of “community organizing” – and America today is led by community-organizer-in-chief Barack Obama, a long-time master practitioner and instructor in Alinsky’s neo-Marxist agitation methods.

Top radio talker Rush Limbaugh recently picked up on this normally unspoken aspect of Obama’s modus operandi“I think he wants people to snap,” opined Rush. “I think Obama is challenging everybody’s sanity. Obama [is] literally pushing people to snap, attacking the very sanity of the country.”

Commenting on Obama’s sudden obsession with employing every means possible to deny law-abiding Americans their constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms, Limbaugh exclaimed: “All of this is so in our face. Everything that people hold dear is under assault. Deliberately making people upset! This is not what presidents do.”

Muslim Brotherhood Penetration of USA – Lopez

Editor’s NoteClare M. Lopez, formerly a career operations officer with the Central Intelligence Agency, writing at the Gatestone Institute published a report on the Muslim Brotherhood and its infiltration of our country’s many institutions including the Federal government and can be read in full at Gatestone Institute. Clare is a frequent contributor and close friend of the SUA staff. The report is long but we highly recommend that you take the time to read it all.

History of the Muslim Brotherhood Penetration of the U.S. Government

by Clare M. Lopez – Gatestone Institute – Excerpted at Creeping Sharia:

Given the long history of Muslim Brotherhood activity in this country, its declared objective to “destroy the Western civilization from within,” and the extensive evidence of successful influence operations at the highest levels of the U.S. government, it is urgent that we recognize this clear and present danger that threatens not only our Republic but the values of Western civilization.

“Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest aspiration.”

– Motto of the Muslim Brotherhood

The upheavals of 2011-2012 across the Middle East and North Africa swept aside secular rulers and the established political order with startling speed, and continue to focus world attention on the revolutionary forces driving these far-reaching events. Poverty, oppression, inequality, and lack of individual freedom are all hallmarks of the societal stagnation that has gripped the Islamic world for the better part of fourteen centuries, but the driving force of the so-called “Arab Spring” is a resurgent Islam, dominated by the forces of al-Qa’eda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Energized as Islam may be at this time, however, without the active involvement of the United States to help arm[1], fund[2], support[3], and train[4] the region’s Islamic rebels, it is questionable whether they could have gotten this far, this fast.

This report describes how the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrated and suborned the U.S. government to actively assist, whether knowingly or not, the mission of its grand jihad. Its hard-won position at the forefront of the 21st century Islamic Awakening is possible only because of decades of patient infiltration and political indoctrination (Da’wa) in the West, and especially the United States of America, even as the grassroots work of building an organizational structure advanced steadily in the land of its origin as well.

It is important to recognize the sophistication of the Brotherhood’s international strategy and how the takedown of U.S. national security defenses from within was critical to the current Middle East-North Africa (MENA) campaign to re-establish the Caliphate and enforce Islamic Law (shariah).

The careful insinuation of Muslim Brothers into positions from which they can exercise influence on U.S. policy began long before the attacks of 9/11, although their success has accelerated dramatically under the administration of President Barack Obama. The massive Muslim Brotherhood organizational network in the U.S., so patiently built up over the decades since that first Oval Office meeting in 1953, eventually gave it a prominence and (false) reputation of credibility that was unmatched by any other Islamic groups, moderate or otherwise.

Using a combination of taqiyya (deceit, dissimulation) and intimidation, the Muslim Brotherhood succeeded not only in making itself the “go-to” authority on all things related to Islam, but in suppressing those who would speak truth about Islam—again, often by persuading the U.S.’s own senior officials to do the job for them: “by their hands”.

When Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff, publicly excoriated, then fired, US Army LTC Matthew Dooley, an instructor at National Defense University, in April 2012 over an earlier-approved course on Islam, and then ordered Dooley’s career-ending Negative Officer Evaluation Report, the lesson was meant to serve as a stark warning to anyone else in the DoD who might be tempted to become accurately educated about Islam.[55]

The horrific violence of terror attacks such as 9/11 also played a role by softening up the intended target: Western society. As Pakistani Brigadier S.K. Malik wrote in 1979, “Terror struck into the hearts of the enemies is not only a means, it is the end in itself. Once a condition of terror into the opponent’s heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be achieved.”[56] By contrast with jihadis, who would fly airplanes into skyscrapers and send suicide bombers into pizza parlors full of women and children, the Muslim Brotherhood looked tame.

That its ideology and ultimate objectives — re-establishment of the Caliphate and universal enforcement of Islamic Law — were identical to those of al-Qa’eda was part of the Ikhwan‘s Information Operation to control what U.S. officials are allowed to know.

The first task was to maneuver Muslim Brothers into positions of trust with key U.S. government officials.
