This. Is. Stunning.

UPDATE #2 SAT 06/06/2015 8:15am:  As expected none of the eunuch-palace-scribes at either the White House or State Department briefings asked about Gertz’s findings.  I even checked to see if D.O.D./Pentagon was having a briefing or had had one recently and they just linked to State.  Gosh, I miss journalism.

UPDATE #1 FRI 06/05/2015 8:30am:  I wonder if  The New York Times was “asked” to write the inane Editorial I commented & blogged on just the other day because The White House knew this piece from Gertz was coming? Things that make you go ‘hmm’. 

This is quite possibly the worst thing ever written about any American president ever by quite possibly the best reporter on intelligence matters in America, Bill Gertz (And that’s not just my opinion.  Mr. Gertz is widely regarded as the “go-to” guy for his razor-sharp mind and deep & impeccable sources.  The only other reporter I would put anywhere near him is Catherine Herridge of Fox News.)

I know I sound hyperbolic, but dear GodGertz is basically reporting that our President has given aid & comfort to the enemy.  And not just any enemy.  This enemy ties each of a woman’s arms and legs to four cars then speeds off (yeah…), rapes an 8 year old girl in front of her family then makes each watch while the others get beheaded one by one, crucifies 3 year old boys, drops gays off rooftops, plays soccer with decapitated heads… burns a caged man alive… I mean… even members of the administration have said publicly they’ve never seen such depravity.

This charge about Obama has been made made many, many, many times before, but never from a source as universally respected as Gertz.  The only thing wrong with it is the White House Press Corps, most prominently ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, NPR, The New York Times, The Washington Post, will never, ever, ever touch it because Gertz now writes for a “right-wing” source (He published this in The Washington Times, but he also writes for The Washington Free Beacon, a newer paper without the sort of strange background as the WT).  It might possibly come up at a State Department briefing.  Possibly even a Pentagon briefing.  If it does, I’ll update.)


I’m still sort of thunderstruck so I’ll just stop here and invite you to read the American Thinker’s take on it, below.

Via The American Thinker – Gertz Expose: Pentagon docs show Obama supports Muslim Brotherhood
June 5, 2015
By James Lewis

Bill Gertz, top Pentagon reporter for the Washington Times has just reported that “Obama secretly backed Muslim Brotherhood.”  The Brotherhood is literally a fascist Muslim radical group from the Nazi period.

Writes Gertz:
President Obama and his administration continue to support the global Islamist militant group known the Muslim Brotherhood. A White House strategy document regards the group as a moderate alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State.” (Aka ISIS).

The policy of backing the Muslim Brotherhood is outlined in a secret directive called Presidential Study Directive-11[.] … The directive was produced in 2011[.] …

Efforts to force the administration to release the directive or portions of it under the Freedom of Information Act have been unsuccessful. …

The directive outlines why the administration has chosen the Muslim Brotherhood, which last year was labeled a terrorist organization by the governments of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates as a key vehicle of U.S. backing for so-called political reform in the Middle East. …

The UAE government also has labeled two U.S. affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Muslim American Society, as terrorist support groups. Both groups denied the UAE claims. Egypt is considering imposing a death sentence on Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood-backed former president who was ousted in military coup in July 2013.

Critics of the administration’s strategy say the Brotherhood masks its goals and objectives despite advocating an extremist ideology similar to those espoused by al Qaeda and the Islamic State, but with less violence. The group’s motto includes the phrase “jihad is our way.” Jihad means holy war and is the Islamist battle cry.

Counterterrorism analyst Patrick Poole said the Brotherhood in recent weeks has stepped up its use of violent attacks in Egypt.

The Muslim Brotherhood is called the “Ikhwan” in Arabic, meaning “brotherhood.”  (Like German “ich” and “won.”)  It took that name in 1928, when fascist and Nazi “brotherhoods” were spreading all over Europe.

From the start, the Ikhwan actively collaborated with Hitler through the mufti of Jerusalem.  One of their slogans is “All we want is to die in the way of Allah” – which means killing as many infidels as you can when you die.  This is the theological basis for suicide-bombing.  Today, there is no daylight between the Ikhwan and ISIS.

In 1981, an Ikhwan front group assassinated Pres. Anwar Sadat, the most important Arab peacemaker with Israel.

The Ikhwan employs Malik Obama, the president’s half-brother, as a big money man.

The Ikhwan created Hamas – the terrorist group that uses children as human shields to protect rocket launchers in Gaza.

The Ikhwan helped neo-Ottoman fascist Erdoğan to take over Turkey.

The Ikhwan is almost certainly behind ISIS, together with Turkey and Qatar.

In 2011, the Ikhwan overthrew Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak – who upheld the Egypt-Israel peace treaty for four decades – in close collusion with Obama, Code Pink, and Bill Ayers.  The Western media actually reported that  Code Pink and Bill Ayers were protesting Hosni Mubarak in the weeks before Mubarak was overthrown.  Today, millions of Egyptians believe that Obama supports their mortal enemy, the Ikhwan.

The Ikhwan is now engaged in a monumental civil war against President El Sisi, whose court just condemned its leader to death.  Their leaders who are not in jail have fled to Qatar, Turkey, and Gaza, all part of the Ikhwan network.

The Ikhwan controls American front groups like CAIR, which buys up American politicians by the truckload, especially on the left.

Four-star admiral James Lyons (USN, Ret.) has gone public with the charge that the Ikhwan has deeply penetrated U.S. intelligence.  That is why Obama can’t even say the words “Muslim war on America.”  That is why our defense has been so feeble and cringing.

Hillary Clinton’s closest personal aide as SecState was Huma Abedin – an Ikhwan insider.  Abedin was one of the few people who had access to Hillary’s illegal personal e-mail account on the night of Benghazi.  Nothing has changed – Abedin is still at the top of the Hillary campaign.  Probably for the first time in U.S. history, presidential candidate Hillary has stonewalled any media questions, period.

Major Ikhwan money flows have been reported going to the Clintons, the Carters, and Obama.  Ikhwan penetration of American society and the U.S. government gives all the appearance of a political quid pro quo – with our survival at stake.

Bill Gertz’s Pentagon documents now prove the Ikhwan connection directly.  The liberal media will try to stifle the facts, as always.

Maybe this time they will fail.


Benghazi’s TRUE Meaning & DANGER

In a May 3, 2014, American Thinker piece entitled Dangerous Times: Still Missing the Strategic Meaning of Benghazi”  by one James Lewis, we see, plainly, in a way few – very few – have done before, how uniquely treasonous the occupant of the Oval truly is. And I mean every single syllable of that: uniquely treasonous the occupant of the Oval is. Notice I did not say how wrong the President is. I said what I meant and I meant what I said.

We don’t know who this man is, and we have never – never – seen anything like this before.

Read excerpts below, but please, take the time to read the entire thing when you have a quiet few minutes to truly digest it.


From Dangerous Times: Still Missing the Strategic Meaning of Benghazi“: 

…Obama’s secret policies have… been exposed to public view with the Benghazi fiasco. It is now clear that since Obama came to power, the U.S. government has overturned all the fundamental values that have characterized American policy from Thomas Jefferson onward. Under Obama we have secretly joined the terrorist side in the Jihad War.

In any other administration that would be unbelievable, but consider the facts.

1) 500 million dollars in arms to al-Qaeda in Syria.

Intelligence analyst Clare Lopez and a group of distinguished retired military and intelligence experts released a statement …. ‘(after) a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack (in Benghazi that) has determined that it could have been prevented — if the U.S. hadn’t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier.’…

Now stay with that for a minute. The United States government gave half a billion dollar in armaments to murderous al-Qaeda butchers who kill Christian children in Syria and Kenya in the name of Allah…

But this undoubted crime against humanity is not the first policy perversion this administration has committed…

2) Active collusion with the fanatical Islamofascist Muslim Brotherhood sect in overthrowing… Hosni Mubarak, who was literally told by Obama to resign, in public… No informed Egyptian doubts …Obama (i)s a ruthless enabler of an Islamofascist sect… [Mubarak] followed Anwar Sadat, the first heroic Arab leader to make peace with Israel, a peace that has now lasted for forty years. It is still the only formal peace agreement that has brought stability to the chronically unstable Middle East. Obama deliberately undermined Hosni Mubarak, and Bill Ayers was even reported to be agitating against Mubarak in collusion with the Hamas gang in Gaza…

3) …Hillary’s closest sidekick Huma Abedin comes from an MB family — everything comes down to family and tribe in the Arab world — and edited a Muslim Sisterhood magazine before her present role in the Hillary campaign. Huma was Hillary’s closest aide as Secretary of State, and therefore privy to numerous secrets. You can bet that Mohammed Morsi in Egypt knew all about the inner workings of Hillary’s State Department. Hillary was in charge during the Benghazi debacle. Just connect the dots…

4) …And now we can plainly see that Obama has actually enabled the mullahs’ rush to nuclear weapons. The fact that Valerie Jarrett was born in Khomeinist Iran and grew up in that kind of family is just another sign of radical Islamists penetration of this administration, at the very highest level.

5) …Today, contrary to Obama’s election time lies about Benghazi, al-Qaeda is expanding explosively in Africa and the Middle East. The Malaysian Airlines plane that somehow disappeared recently may well have carried a terrorist bomb…

In Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood actually won power with Obama’s active collusion… Today, Turkey, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, and Egypt are seeing huge civil conflict, precisely because of Obama’s idea of community organizing in the Middle East. This administration has made things worse, and at least 100,000 people have died as a result. Does the phrase “crime against humanity” ring any bells?

6) Obama’s closest “friend” in the Middle East is said to be Turkey’s increasingly dictatorial Recip Erdogan, who peddles another throwback ideology to the horrific past, called “neo-Ottomanism.” …Today the most famous crime of the late Ottomans is the Armenian Genocide, which Obama has failed to even call by its proper name: A planned mass murder of vast numbers of Armenian Christians by Djemal Pasha, solely because of their faith and ethnicity…

7) The NATO invasion of Libya was a clear violation of international law. When Mr. Obama was asked on TV about the need for Congressional approval of the Libyan invasion, he simply laughed. As the ACORN Manual puts it, in politics “only might is right.” (That was of course a Nazi slogan.)

NATO bombing in collusion with Libya’s al-Qaeda gangs destabilized the relatively sane regime of Muammar Gaddafi, who had actually surrendered his nuclear arms program to the Bush Administration. Bush and Cheney were desperate to reduce the spread of nuclear weapons and ICBMs to suicidal groups like the Iranians. Obama reversed that policy. He has actually enabled Iran’s nuclear program, and lately he openly surrendered to Iran in Geneva. The mullahs couldn’t stop laughing. Now the Saudis are now reported to be buying their own nukes and missiles, because they are fifty miles across the Gulf from Iran’s missiles. Obama has therefore actively enabled a nuclear arms race in the Gulf. The facts are clear…


There’s more. It MUST be read in it’s ENTIRETY.  SEVERAL TIMES and CONTEMPLATED if you are to be TRULY awake and informed. PLEASE.


Nature Abhors a Vacuum

American Thinker hits it out of the park (again!) with this analysis of Obama’s foreign policy – and surprisingly, offers a bit of relief, as encapsulated in this quote: “During the Soviet Empire the rise of Russia would have been very bad news. Today it might give us breathing space, to fix what is wrong at home.” It’s ass-backwards, like everything else in the Age of Obama, but it’s relief none-the-less.  An abbreviated version of the article is below, but if you click here you can enjoy it in its entirety.

Dangerous Times: Russia Rising in the Middle East
By James Lewis

Now that America is leading from behind, more serious powers are rushing to fill the vacuum… When America bugs out, what follows is not love and peace – contrary to deeply delusional liberals. What happens is a worldwide scramble for king of the hill. Instability breeds war… Civil war has erupted all over the place – Egypt, Libya, and Syria… And to show his profound concern for all the killing, Obama is sending vacation postcards from Martha’s Vineyard…

The Arabs aren’t smiling. In Egypt, both sides blame Obama. In Libya and Syria, we have alienated both sides, too. Behind the scenes, the Saudis are paying for the Egyptian military to knock down the Muslim Brotherhood, while the oil sheikhs of Qatar are trying to shaft the Saudis… (and) in the absence of American strength and reliability, all the players are turning to Russia…

That doesn’t mean Putin is a nice man, or that Russia isn’t going to pursue greater power. Putin is a Great Russian ruler.China, Europe, and Islam are his biggest historical threats. But in the nuclear age there are threats all around. Putin is therefore looking to take our place as the decisive power in the Middle East… Suppose you are Egypt’s General Sisi, trying to run a nation in chaos. Who do you want to guarantee your safety? A self-loathing, treacherous Obama, or a ruthless but very consistent Putin?

The answer is clear enough…

Obama may yearn to be adored, but Putin wants to be feared and respected. Putin is a man, with masculine values. Obama is not…

Global Warming Caused Arab Spring Sayeth Friedman

Oh, dear God.

Below are the bitter fruits of my decision to get out of bed at 2:30 a.m. after inexplicably awakening and staring a the ceiling for a half an hour.  Recklessly, and without a wingman, I read the New York Times editorial page.  I do this for cheap thrills, too often, and it’s far past time I admitted it publicly.

I read the first sentence (below) of Thomas Friedman’s latest polemic, “Kansas and Al Qaeda,” and literally snorted my gulp of coffee through my nose.   I will only share this gem of a first sentence and the last, both jaw-droppingly immune to gravity.  The in-between is too ridiculous to litter my blog, but if your stash of acid has run out, click here and read it for a natural high.

Breathe deep, ’cause God knows, Friedman does.

Kansas and Al Qaeda

By THOMAS L. FRIEDMAN ~ SALINA, Kan. — I’VE spent the last few months filming a Showtime documentary about how climate and environmental stresses helped trigger the Arab awakening.

Got that?  It’s not King Barack being “dismissive and derisive” and deposing Mubarek, who, while deeply, murderously flawed, acted as a firewall between the Muslim world and the destruction of Israel, which, of course, leads to the destruction of peace in the Middle East, which, will naturally lead to World War III, if we’re lucky to get that far…


Next, and mercifully, last:

Pluralism, diversity and tolerance were once native plants in the Middle East — the way the polyculture prairie was in the Middle West. Neither ecosystem will be healthy without restoring its diversity.

Has Friedman cracked a history book… like… EVER???????  Did he miss that our Navy, our very N-A-V-Y was birthed because of the (Muslim!) Barbary Pirates?  Jefferson, after having given in to their demand for a bribe for peace, realized – RAPIDLY – that it would never end.  He did this within a couple of years.  We learned this, as a Republic, from a FOUNDER of our Republic, but a couple of CENTURIES later, we’ve got the “paper of record” printing that the Muslim world – who behead people who disagree with them – was once “pluralistic, diverse, and tolerant”?i-dream-of-jeannie-major-nelson-and-jeannie-6737721-1024-768


On “I Dream of Jeannie”???????

Oh, Dear God… It’s going to be a long day if it starts this early, this bad…

Sam LaHood and the Sins of the Father

This poor young man.

I fear he will be sacrificed on the altar of political correctness.

That’s Sam LaHood (at left), son of “Transportation Czar” Ray LaHood (at right). Sam was doing “humanitarian” work in Egypt. The Egyptians, as they are currently constituted, don’t have much use for humanity. They are going to put this young man “on trial.”

It was just a few short weeks ago, when news first broke that he was being “detained” that Mr. LaHood the elder said “there were a lot of good people working very hard” to get his son out of Egypt safely. (I’m paraphrasing, but that was nearly it to the word.)

Both LaHood men have put their faith in soulless, bloodless despots.

The younger can be forgiven for being, well, young.

The elder might warrant forgiveness, if only for the fact that one does not typically find soulless, bloodless depots in the Oval Office.

But I’m not in a forgiving mood.

He should have known. He’s old enough to have been educated properly, before the progressives had completely soaked the books in their foul urine. He could have known had he spent a single minute outside the bubble and talked to some Tea Party. He could have known before his precious boy got on a plane and left America without the other safety net the White House despot never, ever talks about… FEAR & RESPECT for America.

It’s kept us safe in every corner of the world for a very long time.

Until now.

I’ll light a white candle for the peaceful transport, however it transpires, of the bodies & souls of all involved.

UPDATE:  American Thinker has some good reporting on this, too, with Fox info embedded.  See it here.
