The Muslim Brotherhood has been getting some mighty big cover by the Obama administration, a cozy relationship by the way, whose beginning started in Cairo, where he (Obama) saw to their inclusion in the audience to hear his now infamous Cairo speech.
Where Obama was proven wrong; Bachmann was proven right.

The Center for American Progress and Islamist Influences over the White House

Over the last four years, the United States has suffered a series of comprehensive intelligence failures. These intelligence failures ranged from a lack of preparation for the attacks of September 11, 2012, the misguided assessment that there was a moderate group of Taliban willing to form a government and the refusal to believe that the Arab Spring would lead to Islamist takeovers, rather than liberal open societies.
The Obama Administration’s foreign policy has been one disaster after another and it has been quick to blame intelligence failures for its own mistakes. When accounting for its lies about a YouTube trailer leading to the attack on the Benghazi mission, Obama blamed the intelligence. But it turned out that the intelligence had been edited and censored for political reasons. What appeared to be an intelligence failure in Benghazi was actually political manipulation. And the same may well be true of the entire Arab Spring, of Afghanistan and the entire spectrum of attacks on September 11, 2012.
As a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann was proven correct in all the areas where the Obama Administration and its political allies suffered from intelligence failures.
In September 2011, one year before the attacks, Michele Bachmann warned that the Arab Spring was a disaster that would lead to the rise of radical elements across the Middle East. Widely ridiculed for it at the time, she was demonstrating the insight and foresight that a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is supposed to have.
Where Obama was proven wrong; Bachmann was proven right. When Michele Bachmann first warned about the Muslim Brotherhood, it was an obscure organization to most people in Washington D.C. After its successful seizure of power in Egypt however, Bachmann’s critics no longer have any excuse for pretending that condemning the group’s ruthless manipulations is a conspiracy theory. Not when Egyptian liberals are among the loudest voices warning about the Muslim Brotherhood threat; not just to Egypt or the Middle East, but to America as well.

Root em out Michele!
Personally I think that this is going to backfire against the RINO’s, as well as against Grover Norquist. While I respect the anti-tax enthusiasm he exhibits and the campaign he leads, the latter has a lot of answering to do.
NOTE: RINO Republican establishment have been the worst of the worst in targeting Rep.Michele Bachmann, as well as equally duplicitous in kowtowing to the Muslim Brotherhood insurgents inside the U.S. government and to MB front groups like CAIR. It’s also time that FOX News leads the way in refusing to air members of MB front groups like CAIR in the regular programming.
BREITBART.COM: The State Department official is accused of being connected to a vast foreign conspiracy, hostile to America. The official denies it, as the Establishment rallies around the accused official. Indeed, Establishmentarians not only dismiss any possibility of the official’s guilt or complicity, but they also ferociously denounce those who raise the possibility. After all, the official is a part of the in-group; it just isn’t possible to think that the official could do anything wrong. The Establishment is thus united around the proposition that the accused official is a good person, and that the accusers are bad people. And anyone who deviates from that orthodoxy risks being thrown out of the Georgetown-to-Manhattan golden circle of status and respectability.
Am I describing the case of Huma Abedin, the aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton? No, I am describing the case of Alger Hiss, back in the 1940s. Hiss, who spent a decade working in the State Department, was accused of being a Soviet spy by Whittaker Chambers in 1948. And Chambers’ charges were brought before the Congress by a young House freshman, Richard Nixon.
I honor McCain for his service to his country, but as a politician, he’s been a disgrace.
Rep.Michelle Bachmann and the other four congressmen should be applauded for their courage to ask the difficult questions. McCain is a disgrace, showing himself to be the out-of-touch doofus we all know him to be. He hasn’t a clue as to what he’s talking about, if he did, he would be standing shoulder to shoulder with ‘The Five”, who are merely calling for an investigation, which could go either way.
Breitbart.com: John McCain has now denounced Michelle Bachmann for requesting that the State, Homeland Security, Defense and Justice Departments, investigate potential “policies and activities that appear to be the result of influence operations conducted by individuals and organizations associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.”
McCain, who in his political career has always been more interested in appearing before a camera, anywhere, anytime, than standing up for bedrock American principles, found a moment to stand on the Senate floor to defend Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s longtime assistant from Bachmann’s simple request, saying with righteous indignation:
“… recently, it has been alleged that Huma, a Muslim American, is part of a nefarious conspiracy to harm the United States by unduly influencing U.S. foreign policy at the Department of State in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist causes. These sinister accusations rest solely on a few unspecified and unsubstantiated associations of members of Huma’s family, none of which have been shown to harm or threaten the United States in any way. These attacks on Huma have no logic, no basis, and no merit. And they need to stop now.”
Muslim Keith Ellison theatrics on display……
This is outrageous. U.S. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R) is being targeted by lib Dems (and RINO Republicans) and the maleficent media over a twisting of the actual facts by Democrat Congressman Keith Ellison (Muslim).
The fact that Hani Nour Eldin, a member of the Egyptian terrorist faction Gemal Islamiya, was included in the guest list by the U.S. State Department to be invited to the White House with a group of Muslim Brotherhood officials, does not raise alarm bells, whistles and sirens for the just mentioned, but a 15 page letter raising questions about it by Bachmann and four other Republican lawmakers does….is troubling.
Diana West once again takes her surgical scalpel (in the shape of her key board) to cut through the dross to highlight that actual facts. Forget about what the Dems, media and the RINO’S are burping about, the fact is, the Muslim Brotherhood are entrenched within the U.S. government/political system, and using the ignorance of others as well as U.S. civil liberties to shield themselves from serious investigation.
Outing the Muslim Brotherhood
Be alarmed: The U.S. government continues to be “advised by organizations and individuals that the U.S. government itself has identified in federal courts as fronts for the international Muslim Brotherhood.”
So wrote Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., in a lengthy, heavily footnoted answer to a query last week from Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn. He was seeking more information about the reasons Bachmann plus four other House Republicans – Louis Gohmert (Texas), Trent Franks (Ariz.), Lynn Westmoreland (Ga.) and Thomas Rooney (Fla.) – requested Inspector General investigations into “potential Muslim Brotherhood infiltration” of the government. (See all of the letters here.)
Yes, that would be the same Muslim Brotherhood whose leaders are sweeping to power in the Middle East – most recently in Egypt. There, the new president, Mohamed Morsi, fired up voters this spring by declaring: “The Koran is our constitution. The Prophet Muhammad is our leader. Jihad is our path. And death for the sake of Allah is our most lofty aspiration.” That, by the way, is the Muslim Brotherhood’s motto.
Brotherhood-linked groups in the U.S. still take a low-key approach, at least publicly. Thanks to the FBI discovery of a key Muslim Brotherhood document, we know what they’re up to, even who some of them are. The document, entered into evidence during the landmark Holy Land Foundation terrorism finance trial, presents the Brotherhood plan for “civilization-jihad” against the U.S. It describes the group’s “grand jihad” to destroy “the Western civilization from within … so that it is eliminated and (Islam) is made victorious over all religions.” Further, it declares Brotherhood support for “the global Islamic state wherever it is.” It also lists 29 of “our organization and the organizations of our friends” – i.e., front groups. Among them are such well-known Islamic organizations as the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA, and the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR, both of which remain unindicted co-conspirators.
A special thanks to Weasel Zippers for this story: A Story Filled With Heroism: The Four Chaplains who gave their lives on Feb 3rd, 1943. Told By Michele Bachmann On The House floor.
Michele Bachmann On The House floor:
And the four chaplains without skipping a beat, removed their own life vests that they had on their bodies, and they handed them to the young troops who had none. And as the ship went down, the four chaplains linked arms, and witnesses say they saw the four chaplains as young soldiers fighting against the cold, swimming in the water. The saw the four chaplains who had linked arms, who had embraced each other in a circle in the waters, they prayed for the troops who had lost their lives and for those who had survived, and they prayed until the chaplains were no more.The four chaplains were a Catholic, two Protestants, and a Jewish Rabbi. Their names were Father John Washington, Catholic, Reverend Clark Polling, Dutch Reformed, Rabbi Alexander Good, Jewish, Reverend George Fox, a Methodist. These four chaplains gave more than their spiritual guidance to the troops, they gave their lives Febuary third, 1943. It was a decade later that president Dwight Eisenhower remarked, he said and I quote:And we remember that it was only a decade ago on board the transport Dorchester, four chaplains of four faiths, together wilingly sacrificed their lives so that four other Americans might live. In the three centuries that separate the pilgrims of the Mayflower from the chaplains of the Dorchester, America’s freedom, her courage, her strength and her progress have had their foundation in faith.
