Obama/Kerry: Foreign Policy Bullies?

 While many pundits lament the fact that the Obama/Kerry foreign policy is timid, confused, and easily intimidated by strongmen like Vladimir Putin, I submit that it is best compared to a mediocre schoolyard bully.

A mediocre bully is the weak kid who attempts to project strength by picking on those weaker than him. He spews all sorts of threats (i.e., sets “red lines”), but he immediately backs down when a bigger bully shows up.

Why? The mediocre bully knows he’s no match for the stronger one, so he avoids going “mano a mano” with him.

A perfect example of that is when the U.S. State Department’s Marie Harf recently reacted to the decision by an independent Egyptian court to sentence 529 criminals and terrorists to death. Ms. Harf described the decision as “unconscionable” and threatened that the sentence would impact future American aid.

Unfortunately, it’s all too easy for the State Department to forget what those terrorists did:

They killed Christians in cold blood.
They pillaged and burned hundreds of homes, churches, and Christian schools.
They kidnapped and otherwise terrorized people from Minya, one of the larger provinces of Egypt.
And as the Muslim Brotherhood rained down its persecution on Christians, all that one heard from the White House and the State Department was a deafening silence.

Those criminals got their day in court—a privilege the victims never enjoyed. Then, when the case appeared to be open-and-shut, the defendants’ lawyers decided to boycott the proceedings—a move designed to solicit protests from the U.S. government once the sentence was handed down.

With such strong Islamist-friendly elements within the Obama Administration, it was hardly surprising when the schoolyard bully in the form of the State Department announced that the verdict and sentence “represents a flagrant disregard for basic standards of justice.”

Really? What did we do when Zacarias Moussaoui was indicted as a co-conspirator in the September 11th attack and then refused the aid of a lawyer? The trial went on. No one questioned the court’s verdict and sentence.

To be sure, no country offers the leniency and patience of the American justice system. But our system would not waver in the slightest if lawyers boycotted its proceedings. It is deaf to such ingenuous protests, and we should be equally deaf to the berating comments of a mediocre bully that has been hoodwinked by the trickery of the guilty.

As a lover of the real America, the Obama/Kerry foreign policy breaks my heart. It is unrepresentative of the American heartland. But ultimately God’s judgment will fall on all bullies—the strong and the mediocre—and maybe sooner than we think. Being mediocre at mistreatment hardly makes one innocent.

Until then, however, we must pray for the persecuted innocents who suffered under the Muslim Brotherhood, and those who continue to suffer throughout the Middle East today.

Hillary Clinton’s Foreign Policy Blunder of Historic Proportions

It is easy to question Hillary Clinton’s competence during her tenure as Secretary of State. U.S. relations with Russia have deteriorated, Iran and North Korea have not been restrained, and Syria has fallen into chaos.

And as far as blunders go, it’s hard to compete with her revealing congressional testimony about the reason for the Benghazi attack, during which she heartlessly asked, “What difference does it make?”

But her greatest blunder was failing to recognize the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt for what it was: a terror organization.

The Muslim Brotherhood is just like its kissing cousin, Hamas. Their definition of democracy is: one man, one vote, one time. After the first election, you’ll never see another.

Clinton’s unbridled support for the Brotherhood leader and now-disgraced former Egyptian President, Mohamed Morsi, was inexcusable. A freshman in Foreign Policy 101 would have seen through the charade that led to her historic miscalculation.

Tapes recently released by Egyptian intelligence reveal that the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas were working hand-in-glove together.

Let me summarize this disgraceful drama, act by act:

Act One

The Muslim Brotherhood gets Hamas to lob a few missiles toward Israel, thus setting the trap.

Act Two

The U.S. asks Morsi to intervene and stop Hamas from lobbing said missiles toward Israel. The Obama Administration is motivated, not out of a love for Israel, but to prevent it from retaliating.

Act Three

With the missiles stopped, Hillary is lured to Egypt, where she declares Morsi (and by inference, the Muslim Brotherhood) as a great statesman and lover of peace.

Act Four

Along with that unbridled praise, a few billion dollars is sent to Egypt—most of which ends up lining the pockets of the Brotherhood high command.

Act Five

The Western media declares that Mrs. Clinton is a statesperson of heroic proportion. Everyone lives happily ever after.

Well, maybe not that last part.

So much for Clinton’s “experience.” She fell for the Brotherhood trap—hook, line, and sinker. She failed to understand that she was praising an aspiring dictator (brought to power with the help of the American Embassy) who the majority of Egyptians loathed.

But even after that five-act blunder, her mistakes continued. When 33 million Egyptian patriots took to the streets and rejected Morsi and his Islamist deception, the Obama Administration sat on its hands. And it remained aloof after a temporary government took over and made a commitment to bring Egypt into the 21st century.

So as Mrs. Clinton might ask, “What difference does it make?”

The chain of blunders made a historic difference. The new, temporary leader of Egypt, General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi—Now field Marshal-who had acted as a steward to protect the freedom of the Egyptian people—saw no hope in dealing with the Obama Administration.

So on February 12, 2014, he visited Russia. There he was hailed as a hero and given a reception appropriate for a head of state. While President Obama felt the need to lecture Sisi, Putin declared him the up and coming leader of Egypt.

As the U.S. government continues to offer the cold shoulder, 22 million Egyptians have signed a petition to draft Sisi to run for president. No wonder the Egyptian public detests Obama more than his most ardent opponents in the U.S. are capable of doing.

Clinton may be made of Teflon when it comes to her responsibility and response to the Benghazi attack. But her culpability in losing a key U.S. ally to Russia is not only unforgettable, it should be politically unforgiveable.

Islamization of America

Planting the seeds of Islam into any country is arguably the best way to destroy the roots of that country.  Erick Stakelbeck, a terrorism expert and author of the book “The Brotherhood: America’s Next Great Enemy,” states, “The Muslim Brotherhood in America and really around the world are like termites. They burrow into a host society. They eat away at it until the day comes where they are ready to make their move.”   That is the idea of “civilization jihad.” There is the violent jihad that takes place from time to time but what we are obliviously experiencing on a daily basis, in America, is “civilization jihad.”

While many may feel that it’s just a matter of religions, one must remember that Islam is not just a religion. Islam is a complete system that hides under a guise of religion. Islam is a legal system, an educational system, a social system, a dietary system; it’s a comprehensive system that encroaches upon every area of life. It’s a complete system that runs completely contrary to the Constitution. We’ve seen how the roots of this “religion” have grown its tendrils into virtually every area of American society today.

Islamists have pressed for Shariah Law to be implemented into American courts; and some Muslims have been able to get away with atrocious crimes because of it. Some politicians have attempted to bring legislation which opposes Shariah law; after all, this is America with its own courts and its own laws. Islamic Shariah law is being imposed upon American companies, law enforcement, and the public in general, giving special rights to Muslims that neither Christians nor non-Christian Americans could get away with. Most recently we’ve seen it infiltrate our military allowing beards and turbans for adherents of Islam while crosses or other Christian religious symbols are denied to the adherents of Christianity.

Indoctrination to Islam is being pushed in our public schools as children have been forced to memorize and act out portions of the Koran, been assigned roles, as “Muslims”, to be lived out for a week, and been made to wear burqas. Some public schools are teaching that Muhammad is God’s messenger and other children are made to draw the five pillars of Islam. There were even Muslims which came into the public schools to hand out Islamic proselytizing literature; and yet in another school, Muslim high school students demanded prayer accommodations. When have Christians recently been able to do these things without difficulty or retaliation? Even football practices have been re-scheduled to accommodate Ramadan, and all these things are done regardless of other students’ religious beliefs.

Shariah particularly presses into politics as President Obama declared at an UN General Assembly, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” With statements like this and while our president has ignored the leader of Israel (perhaps our greatest ally) but shows greater respect for a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, we may have reason for concern. When our president appears to have an ideology tied more to Islam than traditional America, how are we to stay safe in an age of terrorism?  When he surrounds himself with Muslims, a people who have promised to destroy this country, what are we to do?  He makes policies that are dangerous for America but friendly to our enemies.

It seems that whenever one would speak a word of warning about the undermining and erosion of our culture where these things are concerned we hear the rebuttal of “Islamophobia!” Point out that this is a religion not an ethnic group; the response is, “Islamophobia! Discrimination!” State that it’s a religion based on violence and hatred for those who are not in agreement with them and hear the cry “Intolerant! Islamophobia!”

Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs reports that the word “Islamophobia” was a term invented in a Muslim think tank; “It is a device, a thought crushing device to stifle and to stop all criticism of Islam.”

It seems to be working too. Take the Fort Hood shooting for example. The shooter was handing out the Koran that morning, his business card said, “Soldier of Allah,” and as he shot patriotic Americans he shouted, “Allahu Akbar” (a jihadist war cry). Even after all this it was labeled workplace violence instead of a jihad terror event.

As this administration enables a nuclear Iran, emboldens and finances the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, supports Al Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria, as he puts Muslims in key positions and scrubs all counter-terrorism materials of Islam and jihad, we should be greatly concerned. As this administration jokes about Christian persecution while removing the section of the state report which deals with the status of religious minorities around the world, we should take notice. As we see a decrease in border security, a decrease in common sense issues and a decrease in upholding our Constitution we should be alarmed.

As Pamela Geller succinctly states, “By emboldening our enemy, by arming our enemy, by enriching our enemy, we are literally sharpening the blade of our own executioners.”

So with all this that’s going on, what should we do?

Today, much of the media is a propaganda press; so, go to trusted news sources to keep abreast of what’s going on. Instead of being misdirected by a political sleight of hand we must keep our focus on the real issues. We need to keep them in mind, looking on the horizon with diligence. If not, when the dust has settled, the very thing we should have been concerned about will lay unnoticed under the rubble of whatever we were misdirected to.

Be diligent in checking out names of appointees to know who they are and the agendas they may bring. Don’t get so caught up in a big media event that you neglect to see other problems that are before your eyes or out on the horizon.  Pay attention and be on guard!

Know the Constitution; make sure your Congressmen know it, abide by it and defend it.

Pray for your nation, the president and the media.  Inform others and pray for those who hate you.

Mr. Obama’s Deafening Silence

“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. King envisioned the day when the black community would be at equal footing with those who oppressed them. And yet, I wonder if even Dr. King could have dreamed of an African-American president so few years after paying the ultimate price for seeking equality.

But to say that the occupant of the White House is in the same category of Dr. King and his many colleagues who suffered humiliation and persecution would be wildly inaccurate.

I wish that Mr. Obama had heeded the wise words of Dr. King regarding “silence,” but alas, when it comes to the persecution of Christians around the world, he has not.

One longs to hear a word of compassion from our president for Christians who are being killed or mutilated, and for the churches being destroyed—some of them ancient churches with great historic significance.

One would love to hear a word of sympathy for Christians burned alive or crucified in Nigeria, Central African Republic, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, and Pakistan; or a simple word of concern for the Christians being persecuted in earnest in more than sixty countries.

One would love to hear even the mildest of protests against the Iranians (for whom he lifted sanctions) on behalf of tortured and imprisoned pastors, such as Pastor Saeed.

One would have expected his conscience, as an act of integrity, to compel him to some modest level of fair-mindedness—if anything just to balance the advice he receives from the Muslim Brotherhood, the now-outlawed terrorist organization in Egypt.

But all we hear is the sound of silence.

Mr. President, if you claim to be a Christian and a friend of Christians, like Dr. King, then please heed his advice and break your silence.

Christians expect evil words and deeds from the enemies of Christ. But surely the silence of a world leader such as yourself, who claims to have knelt before the cross and asked for Christ’s forgiveness, is a more powerful statement.

We all know the mainstream media and the ACLU will go after Christians with a vengeance, depriving them of any right of the public expression of their faith. At the same time, those groups will maintain the silence of cowards in the face of Islamist tyranny.

But even those who have supported you, Mr. Obama, must have thought that all those sweet words of the campaigns would have translated into fair-mindedness in governing.

But who can really blame you when so many evangelical leaders are right there with you, also falling silent about the persecution of Christians? As some of them hawk their self-help books, or even diet books, they become tongue-tied when faced with the plight of their fellow believers.

It is difficult to know if the president is influencing them, or if they are influencing him. Only God knows.

Regardless of who starts it, however, their message is loud and clear; their silence is deafening. But they must never forget that there is a God in heaven who will reward the faithfulness of the martyrs, and who will never forget the sealed lips of the earthly powerful.

Are you “willfully blind”?

When I first began to hear about the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamists and Sharia, it was like there was a sense of unreality to it all.

I began to avail myself to video clips, books and articles from people that I respected to test whether the news surrounding the Islamists, Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia were true.  They are and yet so many are “willfully blind.”

I saw this short 14 minute video clip presentation recently.  We make it available to you to assist you in understanding what is upon many unsuspecting nations who were caught off guard.

Amani Mostafa is a former Muslim from Egypt. Her amazing testimony exemplifies the hardship endured by Christians who are born into the primarily Muslim part of the world.

Mostafa was born into a Muslim family, but her mother later converted to Christianity. In attempt to win her mother back to the Muslim faith, Amani began to examine the scriptures. Rather than convincing her mother of her errors, however, Amani became convinced of Christ’s Truth herself.

Amani Mostafa was forced to marry a Muslim man and raise her children in the ways of Islam, but she managed to escape with her children to the United States and now hosts a TV program with massive outreach to women in the Middle East.

Check out this video to hear Amani Mostafa tell her story.

Where are you in all of this?  Are you concerned?   Please let me hear from you.

CPAC 2013 “Uninvited Panel”

Hide it under a bushel?  No!  I’m going to let it shine, shine, shine, shine.  …

So goes the meaningful Sunday School song so many have grown up on.  Thankfully some live out the message of that simple but profound song well into their adult years. I would like to think I am one of them that does so, as well.

However, some Americans whose word has proven to be honorable and noteworthy have found it increasingly difficult to be permitted to tell the truth – even by fellow so-called conservatives – “to let their light shine.”

I speak here, among others, of Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller, Frank Gaffney.  I’m referencing what has been known as CPAC 2013:  The “Uninvited Panel”. The media has predictably been STONE DEAD QUIET regarding CPAC’s stiff-arming of these so-called “controversial” speakers – these truth-tellers who have been black-balled by the Republican establishment crowd.

Referring to the “Uninvited Speakers Panel” of these highly-regarded conservative leaders – Stephen K. Bannon, Executive Chairman of Breitbart News Network, said, “This session is not simply about speakers and panelists, but about direct engagement and participation by the CPAC audience. Andrew Breitbart believed in more voices, not less, and that is what this session will be about. We will get as many people as possible to the microphone to ask their questions and engage our speakers.”

By now at least some of you might know the details.  But just in case you don’t, I would be remiss if I didn’t do my part to make sure you know!  

Either way, check out the following videos:

Robert Spencer: http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/03/video-robert-spencer-at-cpac-uninvited-panel.html

Pamela Geller: http://www.answeringmuslims.com/2013/03/pamela-geller-at-cpac-uninvited-panel.html

I am merely taking a moment to make you aware of the behind the scenes squeeze play that kept great Americans from letting fellow Americans have the opportunity to hear from some of America’s boldest warriors for truth and righteousness in America.

Just a few words of commentary in regard to a few individuals.

Robert Spencer.  I traveled to Dearborn last April to see and hear him speak at the Jessica Mogdad Conference who was the victim of honor-killing.   I wanted to see for myself who these Freedom fighters were.  Robert Spencer’s webpage: http://www.jihadwatch.org/

Jihad Watch won CPACS (2013)  “People’s Choice Blogger Award” but was not allowed to receive it on stage because of the concern that Robert Spencer acknowledged that he would speak  a critical word regarding particular conservatives who have Muslim Brotherhood leanings like Grover Norquist once he was cautioned not to.  See the Robert Spencer video at the link

Pamela Geller.. http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/

I walked away impressed with every aspect of the conference.  I was impressed with the presentations, with the passion, with the quality of each speaker at the Dearborn conference last April.  That is where I became convinced that our government, our media and a large core of so-called conservatives were willfully blind (using author Andrew C. McCarthy’s descriptive words from his book “Willful Blindness”). http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2012/04/jessica.html

I would also include in my short list Frank Gaffney who heads the Center for Security Policy in Washington, DC.   Gaffney has pointedly, with documentation, warned audiences all across America of our government’s embracement of high officials from the Muslim Brotherhood into leading positions in our government including the Pentagon, White House, State Department, Defense Department.

We had Mr. Gaffney speak at our fall event in Grand Rapids.  His presentation was met with broad acceptance and deep appreciation.  See for yourself: http://www.americandecency.org/full_article.php?article_no=1456

Many, many walk away shocked saying “I simply had no idea”.

Trent Franks: ‘Astonishing’ that Obama Never Mentions the Muslim Brotherhood

(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) says “it’s astonishing” that President Obama never mentions the Muslim Brotherhood and its control of the Egyptian government.

“He never mentions the Muslim Brotherhood. It’s astonishing. If there’s anything that has been a trend in this administration related to terrorism, it’s their unwillingness to call it for what it is,” Franks told CNSNews.com immediately following Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Franks also views the Muslim Brotherhood as a threat not only to the security of Israel but to the entire world.

“And the Muslim Brotherhood has gained control of the reins of government in Egypt. It’s that fundamentally simple,” he said. “And it represents not only a threat to Israel and other nations in the region – it represents a destabilizing factor and force in the whole world.”

The veteran Egyptian organization, which spawned the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas in 1987, promotes the application of Islamic law (shari’a).

In his State of the Union address, President Obama spoke of his support for the “universal rights” of individuals in Middle Eastern countries.

“In the Middle East, we will stand with citizens as they demand their universal rights and support stable transitions to democracy,” Obama said.

“We know the process will be messy, and we cannot presume to dictate the course of change in countries like Egypt, but we can and will insist on respect for the fundamental rights of all people,” he said.

Following the so-called “Arab Spring,” the Muslim Brotherhood won control over both parliamentary houses in Egypt during elections held in the winter of 2011-2012. In June 2012, Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi was elected to the presidency.

CNSNews.com reported on Jan. 2 that 13 Egyptian men believed to be affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood were arrested in the United Arab Emirates for trying to recruit members and lecturing on bringing down Arab governments.

What is the point of a federal government that chooses to fight for the wrong side?

What is the point of a federal government that chooses to fight for the wrong side?
America has enjoyed incredible freedoms and security unlike any other nation of the world.  It hasn’t been happenstance.  It has been due to its Founding Fathers, its Constitution, its citizenry, its military, and mostly God’s amazing grace and mercy.

America.  America.  God shed His grace on Thee.  And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea. 

We are in war of monumental proportions and we are losing!

As hard as it is to believe, there are those serving in high places that detest this song because they detest this country, its history and its Constitution.  If you don’t understand this reality, you are naïve.    Please realize, friend,  there are those working day and night to evolve America into something vastly different than what our fathers fought for on foreign shores in years gone by.

It is a horrible thing when you see your government turn against a Constitution that has been the envy of the world for hundreds of years – a Constitution that has led to one nation under God with liberty and justice for all – violated by increasing numbers who deceitfully take an oath to defend it with no intention of doing so.

Our country is currently under an administration which is opposed to the U.S. Constitution and is strategically undermining it.

We are on a path of destruction:

Connect the dots.

Consider the following:

During World War II, we wouldn’t have nominated Nazi sympathizers and actual Nazis to occupy high administrative positions.  Yet that’s what we are doing with known terrorists – affiliates with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Steve Emerson:  An Egytian newspaper gave a listing of Muslim Brotherhood members in the White House.  There were others pointed to in the State Department, Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice who are definitely Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers or actually members of the Muslim Brotherhood.  Steve Emerson, is an American author and journalist, Executive Director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

Frank Gaffney  specifically documents this trend of Muslim Brotherhood in the George W. Bush and the Obama administrations at

http://www.muslimbrotherhoodinamerica.com

Also see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=_3nRIDQcbnk

To keep Americans – particularly researchers, conservative journalists, authors, and specialists in the field from warning others, there is a clear cut attack upon the Freedom of Speech by this administration.   They are bent upon shoving their plan down our throats.  Is Shariah, as opposed to the Constitution, on the horizon?  How could it not be when you connect the dots.

Curtailing freedom of Speech.

Steve Emerson:  Attorney General Eric Holder has quashed indictments of terrorists, financiers because he doesn’t want to alienate the Muslim community.

You can’t talk about radical Islam or you’re accused of being Islamophobic.  The ramnifications are not just minimal.  It happens to have real live consequences when

Major Nidal Hassan kills 13 people and the reason he got away with it was because his

supervisors refused to report him because they were afraid of being called racist.

Steve Emerson in a radio interview on Bill Bennett’s Morning in America, January 8, 2013

Even our military trainers cannot use words like “Islamist” to warn and to identify characteristics of a terrorist. 

One News Now:  The Thomas More Law Center says it has obtained more evidence to prove its contention that the Pentagon is taking its marching orders from Islamic groups in taking extreme disciplinary action against Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley, a 1994 graduate of the United States Military academy.

The highly decorated armor officer was excoriated and relieved of a teaching assignment because he discussed negative aspects of Islam in an elective course entitled “Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism” at the Joint Services Staff College.

“The Pentagon is now doing his bidding,” he points out. “And his bidding is there is to be no negative aspect of the religion of Islam or the political ideology of Islam that he is not ready to embrace or which is a concern of national security.”

Thompson says the TMLC is considering a federal lawsuit if the case is not resolved by administrative remedy. http://www.onenewsnow.com/legal-courts/2012/12/17/document-vindicates-army-officer%E2%80%99s-teaching-on-islam#.UNB6fyAEZZs.facebook

There was a day when we could count upon the elite media to report news at least somewhat objectively.  However,  we’ve seen immense erosion on this front for many years.

Now our elite media is ideologically in bed with them [the jihadists and the radical left]– an alliance between the left and the Jihadist in academic circles. 

Steve Emerson:  In Hollywood, 80% of all Hollywood studios today submit their scripts to radical Islamic groups for their approval. These are Muslim Brotherhood groups that say in their own bylaws that any citation of a radical Islamic protagonist or mention of the word radical Islam is racist.  In fact, that’s the policy of this administration.  You cannot use the words “Radical Islam”. You can only use the words” violent extremism”.

Individuals like Steve Emerson, Daniel Pipes or Robert Spencer or other experts or investigators of radical Islam have been blacklisted in terms of speaking before the FBI, The Department of Justice , Department of Homeland Security. 

Steve Emerson in a radio interview on Bill Bennett’s Morning in America, January 8, 2013

Individuals like those named above are merely trying to do what good citizens have done down through the ages when necessary – caringly warn their fellow citizens, neighbors and friends when an enemy is lurking at their door. 

At a time when the Muslim Brotherhood are spreading, and expanding influence and power throughout the Mideast, Europe, and North America, the Obama Administration has already made drastic cuts to the military with more massive cuts to be made.

Sequestration– the Obama administration has already cut $487 billion from the Defense spending and more has been projected.  It is anticipated that upwards of 800,000 persons will lose their jobs.

Andrew C. McCarthy: In addition, Well . . . the president has announced that not only will he continue funding Egypt’s Islamist government, but he intends to include in that U.S. aid the provision of 20 F-16 fighter jets.  Moreover, Obama is continuing his administration’s collaboration with the 57-government Organization of Islamic Cooperation on the “Istanbul Process.” http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/335716/blasphemy-and-islam-andrew-c-mccarthy

What is the Istanbul Process?   The Istanbul Process is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s major transnational law initiative, undertaken in partnership with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). It was established last year to “implement” measures against speech and expression that negatively “stereotype[s]” Islam and Muslims, with a particular emphasis on enacting them in the West.

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/334647/america-again-submits-istanbul-process-nina-shea#

Andrew C. McCarthy III is a former Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York.  A Republican, he is most notable for leading the 1995 terrorism prosecution against Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman and eleven others.

Andrew C. McCarthy, former Federal Prosecutor and prosecutor of the Blind Sheik who was convicted of trying to take down the World Trade Center in 1993, comments on the Istanbul Process.  The product that has emerged out of that process is a resolution called Resolution 1618 which is blatantly unconstitutional but would in fact if enforced in the United States substantially curb American Free Speech Rights.

It’s clear why the Islamists want to impose Shariah/blasphemy standards which would require an actual repeal of the First Amendment.  They want to impose the Shariah stricture that basically says that any criticism of Islam is prohibited and in Islamic societies is brutally punished.

From the left standpoint they are both sympathetic to the Islamist narrative about the United States but more importantly from their perspective they like to see any situation in which the rights that are laid out and the limitations which are laid out in the Constitution are undone because that lends a real force to their view of the Constitution as an organic document that they can shape and evolve and with it evolve the society into something that is more conducive to their vision of what the good society is.  So they have a variety of motivations for being supportive of this Islamist agenda as well.  

I think any place you look whether it’s First Amendment rights, Second Amendments rights which are now under real assault.  Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights – almost everywhere you look – the left is aligning with organizations that want to see an evolution in what the previous originalists understanding of what those rights was.

Andrew C. McCarthy interviewed by Frank Gaffney at Secure Freedom Radio, December 18, 2012

What is the point of a federal government that chooses to fight for the wrong side?

What is of great moment is that the president has joined the hostile forces against us, against Americans whose protection is the sole reason for the federal government’s existence. If that is to be Washington’s posture, what do we need it for? It is bad enough when Leviathan cannot tell America’s friends from America’s enemies. But what is the point of a federal government that cannot tell America’s enemies from America? Or that can tell perfectly well, but chooses to fight for the wrong side?

http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/335716/blasphemy-and-islam-andrew-c-mccarthy

Another case in point:  Why would the Pentagon allow this kind of stuff to happen?

It’s an outrage.

Al-Awlaki bought  air tickets  for 9/11 Muslim terrorists, FBI knew but he was  invited to the Pentagon anyway to dine and preach.

What about the most recent Obama nominees?

Secretary of State:  John Kerry

Secretary of Defense:  Chuck Hagel

Director of the CIA:  John Brennan

This is the team that is meant to manage the decline of the United States, the retreat of America from the world. It’s not a pivot.  …   It’s about turning inward. 

Danielle Pletka, the Vice President in charge of Foreign and Defense Studies at the American Enterprise Institute,  in an interview with Frank Gaffney on his daily radio broadcast, Secure Freedom Radio, January 9, 2013

What about ICNA and their $25,000,000 campaign to promote Shariah inside the United States? 

[Taken from radio interview between Frank Gaffney and Andrew C. McCarthy:]

GAFFNEY:  ICNA (The Islamic Circle of North America has announced that it has a 25 million dollar campaign to promote Shariah inside the United States.  Is there any question in your mind that the alignment is being perpetrated here that the Constitution of the United States and Shariah are compatible is a fraud?

MCCARTHY:  It’s a total fraud.  I think the silver lining of these campaigns is that they are provoking blowback campaigns on the grassroots level by Americans.  Really that’s the only way we’re going to get good change.  We’re not going to get it from Washington.  It’s going to come from the grassroots that don’t want Shariah.

GAFFNEY:  … if we fail to provide the change we will be sacrificing everything we care about – our Constitutional freedoms, our form of government, indeed our country itself I fear.

Keep your head in the game

A look back and a look ahead.  With so many distractions, many don’t take time.This is dangerous.  We need to understand the times in order to know what to do!

I was listening to a radio talk show this morning.  There was an excellent discussion with an expert on American demographics and politics – looking ahead to the elections of 2016.

Too, there was the recognition that America is embattled and that we will never return to the America of old; that people who are feeding from the government trough are clearly on the increase.   We know that and we are very concerned regarding the serious implications of an expanding government and increasing taxes.

In addition, I read an article on Town Hall today that discussed several reasons to be optimistic  as we look ahead.   I can appreciate those who still are hopeful despite so many reasons not to be.

However, one thing that particularly concerns me is the massive tendency of the American people and especially our government leadership that is so willfully blind to the massive spread and threat of the Muslim Brotherhood.  What especially gulls me is there is ample evidence that this administration and earlier administrations act as if there is nothing to fear regarding the placement of Muslim Brotherhood officials in high ranking positions.

With so many distractions, we still need to be attentive as much as possible to the very, very real threat posed by Muslim Brotherhood.

There are numerous policy changes that should concern us greatly.  Yet, the mainstream media won’t report them.  Politicians, except for only a small handful, will try to bring it out (Michelle Bachman, Trent Franks, Louie Gohmert, Thomas Rooney, Lynn Westmoreland ).  But when they do, they’re attacked for being extremists.

Here are a few of those policy concerns:

Referring to the terrorist (Islamist) killings at Fort Hood as workplace violence instead of terrorism.  This IS an outrage.

Sequestration – the cutting of our military budget by half a trillion dollars in a time when the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Al Qaeda  Hezbollah, China and Russia are in expansion.

Israel – Is America pro-Egypt? Pro-Morsi?  Pro-Israel?   If you aren’t paying attention to what is unfolding here, I urge you too.

So much, much more can be said and should be said but simply isn’t being reported.

There are those reporting with courage and objectivity.  We are living in a day though where you have to look beyond mainstream media and look to either individuals, blogs and particular ministries or conservative Christian news outlets to find honest reporting.

One such article came this morning.  The article was in regard to Jeb Bush’s possibly running for president in 2016.   The writer gives a strong perspective as to why Jeb Bush is problematic.

The title gives a hint as to what the concern is.  I suggest you read it.

Does Jeb Bush CAIR too much to be President?

I also recommend a web link that I watched recently with a brief message conveyed by Frank Gaffney speaking to a gathering in Los Angeles.  He urges attendees to use their influence to make a difference in America and for American security.

I urge you to watch it and listen to the empassioned warning from this good man.

See:  By allowing Obama to endanger Israel, we are at the cusp of the next horrific war.

For those of you who are readers, we have a limited number of books from Center for Security Policy entitled:  Shariah The Threat to America

It was strongly recommended to me by speakers at Values Voter Summit in Washington, DC.  I read it and can say without reservation that I found their recommendations to be true!

We are making it available at the low price of $7.00. It is 352 pages long.

Here is a very short list of the chapters:

What is Shariah Shariah and Jihad The Muslim Brotherhood:  The Threat Doctrine Operationalized Other Shariah-Adherent Organizations Many others
