The Muslin Brotherhood And Its Friends in the Democratic Party

Barack Obama made sure that Muslin Brotherhood members were in the audience when he gave his celebrated address to the Islamic world at Cairo in June of 2009. He came out in favor of the Egyptian uprising against Hosni Mubarak in 2011, even when it became clear that the Brotherhood stood to be its chief beneficiary. The Brotherhood front group Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) enjoyed tremendous mainstream acceptance in the Obama administration; Ingrid Mattson, then president of ISNA, was invited to offer a prayer at the National Cathedral during Obama’s inaugural festivities on January 20, 2009. Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s senior advisor for public engagement and international affairs, and a longtime close Obama aide, asked Mattson to join the White House Council on Women and Girls, which is dedicated to “advancing women’s leadership in all communities and sectors – up to the U.S. presidency…”

The Muslin Brotherhood’s infiltration of the Washington establishment is remarkable by any standard. Former FBI Special Agent John Guandolo noted in October 2011: “What we’re seeing not just inside the White House, but inside the government entities, the national security entities, the State Department – is a strong push by the Muslin Brotherhood to get their people not just into operational positions, but policy positions – deeper, long term, bureaucratic positions.” The Obama administration appeared to be aware of the political damage that its warm stance toward the Muslin Brotherhood could cause. At a White House Iftar dinner late in2011, Mattson’s successor as head of ISNA, Mohammed Majid, was seated just a few feet away from Obama. However, the official guest list did not contain Majid’s name.

On September 25, 2011, the Arab-American Candidates’ Night Dinner in Virginia attracted forty six candidates from both parties, including the Democratic Senate candidate, Tim Kaine (who later became Hillary Clinton’s running mate). The dinner that these candidates eagerly attended was being held to present a Lifetime Achievement Award to Jamal Barzinji, a Brotherhood operative who also has ties to Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas. In addition to serving as president of the Muslin Students Association (MSA), a Brotherhood front group, Barzinji was a founder of the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), a top ISNA official, and vice president of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). He was also a founder of the notorious Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, where Anwar al-Awlaki served as imam from January 2001 to March 2002 and counseled two of the 9/11 hijackers. Tim Kaine’s coziness with Barzinji was no surprise. In 2007, as governor of Viginia, Kaine appointed Esam Omeish, president of the national MSA, to the Virginia Commission on Immigration, despite the fact that Omeish is on the Dar al-Hijrah mosque’s board of directors and had praised the bloody Hamas leader Ahmed Yassin, who was killed in 2004, as “our beloved Sheikh Ahmed Yassin.”

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s closest personal assistant and advisor was Huma Abedin, an observant Muslin who lived in Saudi Arabia as a child. Abedin’s  brother Hassan worked as “a fellow and partner with a number of Muslin Brotherhood members.” Her mother, Saleha Mahmound Abedin, is a professor in Saudi Arabia and a member of the Brotherhood’s women division, the Muslin Sisterhood.

AND THESE PEOPLE WANT A RAISE!

Sheila Jackson Lee is saying President Trump is in violation of the Constitution and should be impeached. She is one to talk about the Constitution. Jackson Lee was speaking on the House floor on March 12, 2014 and the Texas Democrat referenced the beginning of the country and said: “We have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not.” Jackson Lee overshot the age of the U.S. Constitution by 174 years. When she made the remark it was 226 years old. The Constitution was formally adopted on September 17, 1787. It was then ratified on June 21, 1788 and went into effect in March of 1789.

This is not the only stupid thing Jackson Lee has blurted out of her mouth. In 1997, while on a trip to the Mars Pathfinder operations center in California, Jackson Lee asked if the Pathfinder had succeeded in taking a picture of the flag planted on Mars by Neil Armstrong in 1969. Needless to say, Jackson Lee, then a member of the House Science Committee, had confused Mars with the moon. Despite the alliterative names, they are very different astral bodies.

While Jackson Lee is a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee,  she seems to be badly in need of a new atlas. In 2010, she compared the war in Afghanistan to Vietnam, an analogy that has often been invoked by Democrats. But the lesson she took from that was unique, to say the least. “Today, we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working.” Jackson Lee went on to caution: “WE may not agree with all that North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace. I would look for a better human rights record for North Vietnam, but they are living side by side.” South Vietnam has not existed for over 40 years since North Vietnamese forces took Saigon and reunified the former French colony in 1975.

Her statements rank up there with “Guam may capsize.” Hank Johnson and Sheila Jackson Lee has to be the two dumbest members of Congress. But on the other hand, that is not saying much. All the members of Congress on the Democratic side of the aisle are running a close second.
