DeSantis Hearing Establishes the Muslim Brotherhood Must Be…


The Muslim Brotherhood should have been declared terrorist organization decades ago. Thanks to a hearing at the Subcommittee on National Security of the House oversight committee chaired by Ron DeSantis, the terrorist designation seems closer than ever.

DeSantis Hearing Establishes the Muslim Brotherhood Must Be Designated as a Terrorist Organization – the Sooner, the Better

WASHINGTON, D.C.— It is no longer a question of whether the United States will designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization. It is only a matter of when and how.

 

That’s the principal take-away from a congressional national security panel this morning that addressed “The Muslim Brotherhood’s Global Threat” and what the US should do about it.

 

“This hearing is an opportunity to discuss what the United States’ next step should be in combatting the Muslim Brotherhood’s threat,” said Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-FL), chairman of the Subcommittee on National Security of the House oversight committee.

 

“The Muslim Brotherhood is a militant Islamist organization with affiliates in over 70 countries,” DeSantis said. “There’s no question that the Muslim Brotherhood’s affiliates are involved in terrorism.”

 

The historic hearing follows a June 28 Center for Security Policy Decision Brief that called on the Trump Administration to declare the entire Muslim Brotherhood and its fronts and affiliates as terrorist organizations.

 

“Thankfully the Trump Administration has discarded the Obama-era policy of treating the Brotherhood as a potential ally,” DeSantis said. “Now, the questions are focused on how expansive to make the terror designation, and whether it should be done through the State Department or Treasury Department.” 

 

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy and a longtime associate of the Center for Security Policy, was one of the four witnesses who testified. He was the only Muslim witness, and made the case powerfully for Center-recommended policy of designating the entire Muslim Brotherhood and its fronts as terrorist entities.

 

In the course of his testimony, Dr. Jasser rebutted characterizations by the Brotherhood’s apologists and enablers of its critics as “haters” and “Islamophobes”:

 

Nothing would be more pro-Muslim than the marginalization of the Muslim Brotherhood and its direct affiliates. Making the Muslim Brotherhood radioactive would allow the light to shine upon their most potent antagonists in Muslim communities – those who reject political Islam and believe in liberty and the separation of mosque and state.

 

He also discussed national security risks associated with failing to designate the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates as terrorist entities. One of them is censorship of jihadist terminology in U.S. government agencies.  Dr. Jasser correctly observed that such censorship impedes analysts’ ability to protect the nation:

 

To think that these words and concepts, and others are off limits in the freest nation on earth, censored [in] our agencies, is just incredulous considering the growing threat we face today from violent Islamism.  It smacks of a bizarre invocation of blasphemy laws in America. It is groups like the Muslim Brotherhood that have benefited from our refusal to discuss these elements of Islam and Islamism.

 

The three other witnesses – Hillel Fradkin of the Hudson Institute, Jonathan Schanzer of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, and Daniel Benjamin of the Qatar-funded Brookings Institution – agreed to varying degrees that the Muslim Brotherhood constitutes a threat.  They recommended, however, more narrow terrorist designations of specific Muslim Brotherhood entities.

 

Chairman DeSantis observed: “It is clear that the Brotherhood constitutes a real threat to the national security interests of the United States.  We can debate the best way to counter this threat, but simply ignoring the threat is not an acceptable answer.”

 

The Center for Security Policy has submitted a statement for the hearing record endorsing Rep. DeSantis’ assessment and laying out the factual basis for designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.

 

Center President Frank J. Gaffney urged legislators, executive branch officials, the media and the public at large to examine particularly compelling evidence of the threat the Brotherhood poses: Its 1991 Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal of the Group in North America– a secret plan for “destroying Western civilization from within” written by a top Muslim Brotherhood operative, Mohammed Akram, and introduced by the federal government into evidence in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation et.al. v. United States terrorism financing trial.

Congratulations to Rep. Ron DeSantis and others who took on the Muslim Brotherhood yesterday in a hearing on Capitol Hill.  They established that it’s a foreign terrorist organization and will be officially designated as such by the U.S. government.  The only question is how soon and how comprehensively.

 

Muslim reformer Zuhdi Jasser testified that in 2011 then-FBI Director Robert Mueller told Congress that “elements of the Muslim Brotherhood both here and overseas have supported terrorism.” Dr. Jasser added, “Nothing would be more pro-Muslim than the marginalization of the Muslim Brotherhood and its direct affiliates.”

 

That’s because the Brotherhood seeks to impose its seditious Sharia-supremacist doctrine on pro-American Muslims as it works – according to the group’s secret plan – to use stealthy “civilization jihad” to “destroy Western civilization from within.”

 

They must be stopped.  Start by designating the entire Muslim Brotherhood now.

 

This is Frank Gaffney.

Why in the heck are all these Democrats not at the very least facing a jury trial for criminal acts. When a Dem tells you the FBI has fully investigated say, Crooked Hillary and exonerate her, they are either willingly delusional, blinded by stupid political devotion or outright lying! FAR MORE evidence of crimes from Hillary, Comey, Clapper, Brennan and let’s not forget various Dems directly linked to FORMER President Obama than to President Trump or ANYONE indicted or convicted by Mueller that had absolutely nothing to do with Russia colluding with Trump to win the 2016 election.

 

Flynn pled guilty to lying about something he didn’t know he lied about until the Mueller found enough of a discrepancy to claim lying to the FBI. Manafort is indicted for bank fraud LONG before Donald Trump even decided to run for President. Michael Cohen is being investigated not Russia collusion but for the method Cohen used to fund an NDA with Stormy Daniels/Donald Trump sex (AGAIN way before Trump decided to run for President):

 

Update: The Washington Post reports that Cohen “is under federal federal [sic] investigation for possible bank fraud, wire fraud and campaign finance violations,” citing three people with knowledge of the case. (FBI raids office, hotel room of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen; By Alayna Treene; AXIOS; 4/9/18)

 

I am frustrated and angry that the American legal system has become so politically corrupted that Dems get a complete pass for obvious crimes and Conservatives, Conservative supporters and Conservative Republicans get the book thrown at them merely for petty crimes that not even a local police force would use yet the FBI trapped them with petty finagling or zero evidence of a crime.

 

Justin Smith reminded me of this unequal justice that has impugned President to the tune of Treason. Justin correctly calls these Deep State Dems Amerikan Fascists.

Nothing Short of Treason

Any act that seeks to unseat a duly elected U.S. President and his administration, through illegal means, although it might not be intended to overthrow our republic, undermines our republic in the same manner of an attempted governmental overthrow, as “peaceful” as it may be. Since well before the election of 2016, the American people now know, there were a group of anti-Donald Trump statist progressive Obama bureaucratic holdovers working diligently and under Obama’s direction, to subvert President Trump’s campaign, and, then afterwards, his administration and his presidency, using sabotage and espionage tactics, because they were just so angry that he beat the criminal-minded and corrupt Hillary Clinton so handily. Their actions are nothing short of treason. [Bold Text Blog Editor’s]

 

On Wednesday April 18th, Sara Carter, journalist extraordinaire, explosively divulged that Representative Ron DeSantis (R-Florida) and ten other Congressmen sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, U.S. Attorney John Huber and FBI Director Christopher Wray, which refers criminal charges against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI Director James Comey, and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe for their involvement in the trumped up investigations into Trump and known violations of federal law. Also named in this criminal referral were FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his lover FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who made their anti-Trump bias well known in emails now in the hands of Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

 

Just as culpable and involved in this mess are former CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who leaked classified information like a rusty radiator leaks water. One must wonder when they too, along with many other co-conspirators, will have criminal charges proffered against them.

 

It was James Clapper who orchestrated the leak, through FBI Director James Comey and his friend Columbia Professor Daniel Richman, that President Trump may have been compromised by the Russians. This is revealed through Comey’s own words in recently released memos. And according to the House Intelligence Committee, in early 2017, Clapper leaked the details of the high-level government briefings on the Steele Dossier to CNN and lied to Congress about it.

 

As the letter states: “It would appear that Director Comey leaked classified information when sharing these memos with professor Richman. Accordingly, we refer James Comey to DOJ for potential violation(s) of: 18 USC 641, 18 USC 793, and 18 USC 1924.” And all of this was done, by Comey’s own admission, to ensure the appointment of a Special Counsel in order to persistently harass President Trump, even though he was not guilty of any wrong doing or any Russian collusion.

 

Without going into great detail, it is sufficient to say that Loretta Lynch was referred for possibly prosecution for allegedly threatening with reprisal the former FBI informant who came forward regarding the corrupt and criminal dealings inside the Uranium One deal and Clinton’s “pay for play” scheme, through the Clinton Foundation, while Andrew McCabe is on the firing line for violating three different laws as he lied under oath repeatedly and numerous times to FBI and the Office of the Inspector General investigators.

 

The primary allegation against Hillary Clinton states that she disguised payments to Fusion GPS to obfuscate her involvement in manufacturing the false Steele Dossier, that would later be used to illegally acquire a FISA warrant to run surveillance on Donald Trump and his inner circle. The criminal referral notes that those payments potentially violate 52 USC 30121 and 52 USC 30101 requiring the mandatory disclosure of these payments to the Federal Election Commission. However, the lawmakers also made mention of the January 22nd Wall Street Journal [Blog Editor: Need subscription to read past 1st paragraph] article that detailed texts between Strzok and Page and suggesting the FBI “eliminated evidence that Mrs. Clinton compromised high-level communications”. But Clinton is guilty of so much more, from Uranium One to Benghazi.

Foreign nationals are not supposed to influence our elections, but one should recall that Hillary’s campaign and the DNC, under her control, funneled $12 million dollars to the law firm of Perkins Coie, which paid Fusion GPS, and in turn, Fusion GPS hired Steele. Christopher Steele, former British MI-6 agent, was the only foreign influence on the 2016 election.

 

Since the presentation of false and unverified information from the Steele Dossier was the source cited before the FISA Court to obtain warrants for the surveillance of President Trump and one of his advisors, Carter Page, this too raised significant concerns. DeSantis and the others reference House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions this March, as they recommended that charges be brought against “all DOJ and FBI personnel responsible for signing the Carter Page warrant application … for possible violations of 18 USC 242 and 18 USC 1505 and 1515b”.

 

While the letter spoke of “dissimilar degrees of zealousness” in the investigations into Clinton and Trump campaign associates, it went on to say, “we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately”. Is there really any question that these criminals broke numerous U.S legal codes coming and going, with impunity and no fear of prosecution, thinking themselves untouchable?

 

During the following press release, DeSantis stated: “The political elite are not immune from the rule of law, and those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as any other American. If former officials, including Hillary Clinton and James Comey, broke the law then they need to be held accountable. We ask that the Department of Justice move swiftly to ensure that violations of federal statutes by high officials are identified and prosecuted.”

 

Much of where the nation goes from here hinges on the May 8th report from Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Hopefully, he too will see the great need for quick and earnest prosecution of these criminals.

 

Furthermore, all of this perfectly illustrates that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “investigation” is based on a lie. Now, although he has repeatedly and disingenuously stated that President Trump is not a target of the investigation, Mueller continues on by attacking any and all of the president’s closest aides and confidantes, dredging up several minor and unrelated “crimes”, as he attempts to force something to the surface that might implicate President Trump in a crime worthy of impeachment. It’s past time for this farce to come to a screeching halt, in the name of sanity and for our national security, as the President fries some bigger fish, like North Korea and Iran.

 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced last month he had assigned a federal prosecutor to investigate the broader issues in this mess, while rejecting the notion of appointing a second Special Counsel to investigate the investigators and to see just how far to the top this goes. The pressure must be kept on these criminals until we have found every last damn one of them and receive a full accounting of exactly who was involved, since it must be incomprehensible to any cogent and logical thinker [to believe] that Barack Obama himself didn’t have a hand in this.

 

There have been about thirty trials for treason in the United States since 1789. America witnessed Mildred Gillars, an American broadcaster, and Robert Best, a journalist, convicted of treason after working for the Nazis to push their propaganda during WWII. The last people to be tried and executed for treason were Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, who were convicted of passing U.S. atomic secrets to the Soviets in 1953. What these amerikan fascists, such as Clinton, Lynch, Comey and McCabe, have just done is infinitely worse than anything any other traitor to America has perpetrated across our history, and as such, it demands a harsh penalty. Perhaps America may soon see real swift and sure justice done once more, if the rule of law still exists and if our Republic is to be saved.

Congress. Republicans Send Criminal Referrals for Hillary, Comey, Lynch & McCabe

“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American…”

 

(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) Several lawmakers are asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate former Obama officials, including former FBI Director James Comey, for alleged violations of federal statutes.

Interview with Representative / Congressman on the House Judiciary Committee Ron DeSantis by Brian Kilmeade on the Fox News Fox and Friends program Wednesday April 18 2018 4/18/2018. [*** There is more interesting content in the description I will post after the McGhee cross post.]

 

Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., along with 10 other congressmen, sent a letter to Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and U.S. Attorney John Huber, saying there is evidence that Obama-era officials partook in corruption and even treason.

 

“The investigations into the Hillary Clinton and the Presidential campaign revealed egregious levels of misconduct and mishandling of sensitive information,” Gosar said in a statement.

 

Comey’s deliberate refusal to investigate Clinton’s misuse of a personal email system “suggests improper investigative conduct, potentially motivated by a political agenda,” Gosar said in the letter.

 

Comey’s recently published memoir, “A Higher Loyalty,” is also considered “questionable conduct” because of its detailed alleged conversations with President Trump, even confidential ones.

 

According to Gosar, this suggests Comey was responsible for sensitive leaks to the media, since he had already admitted to asking “a friend to share the content with the reporter.”

 

Such behavior is treasonous, the legislators said.

 

The lawmakers also want Hillary Clinton investigated, specifically her former presidential campaign’s connection to the Washington firm Fusion GPS, which led research into potential collusion between Russia and Trump, ultimately leading to the controversial Steele dossier.

 

Clinton disguised payments to Fusion GPS, violating the Federal Election Commission’s statutes.

 

The Steele dossier eventually led to an investigation into alleged collusion between Trump and Russia, which Gosar says is unfounded since the dossier was based on “false and unverified” information and funded by illegal means.

 

“The actions of these government officials outlined in our letter point to evidence of corruption and possible treason. It’s time these unelected bureaucrats stop hiding behind their titles and start being held to the same standards as every other American.”

Gosar said he wants everyone connected to the Steele dossier investigated, including FBI Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Counsel Lisa Page, who frequently had conversations via text about how they could undermine Trump’s presidential campaign and secure a Clinton win.

 

Strzok and Page also allegedly assisted Clinton in hiding her misuse of her personal email server, in which it’s believed she compromised confidential communications.

 

The Wall Street Journal reported in January that, “the latest texts show the FBI also eliminated evidence that Mrs. Clinton compromised high-level communications.”

 

“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that these potential violations of law are vetted properly,” the Congress members’ letter stated.

*** Interesting text from the above Youtube video description section:

 

Congressman / Rep on the House Judiciary Committee Ron DeSantis said all of the following:

 

Remember, he (Former F.B.I. Director James Comey) testified to the Congress that he did not make any decision regarding Secretary Clinton until after she was interviewed. He was asked that specifically by one of my colleagues. And, yet the evidence that’s come out since then demonstrates that actually they made this determination months before not only interviewing Secretary Clinton but also interviewing a number of key witnesses. And, so the lack of candor with the Congress is something that needs to be investigated.

 

So, here’s the issue with Hillary Clinton: You notice, they (the Mueller Special Counsel) are supposedly going after (President Trump’s Attorney) Michael Cohen for an FEC (Federal Election Commission) violation because of this non-disclosure payment (to Stormy Daniels). Now, that’s not really a theory that’s been tried before…I mean, it seems a little odd to me…but if that is potentially an offense…Well, is it (Hillary Clinton and her campaign) camouflaging these payments? What they (Hillary Clinton and her campaign) did was they paid from the Clinton campaign to a law firm Perkins Coie and then Perkins Coie paid Fusion GPS Christopher Steel and that’s how the (phony Russian) Dossier was developed. So, they effectively disguised the fact that they were funding the Dossier. That’s not the way the Federal Election laws are supposed to work…You’re supposed to disclose your expenditures. So, if you (Mueller and his Special Counsel team) are going after (President Trump’s attorney) Cohen, why isn’t anybody also looking at how the Clintons handled this?

 

With regard to Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, we raise concerns regarding her decision to threaten with reprisal the former F.B.I. informant who tried to come forward in 2016 with insight into the Uranium One deal. He (the F.B.I. informant) testified in front of the Congress in the committees that he was threatened by Lynch’s Justice Department. We think that’s a serious issue and we think it deserves further investigation.

 

With regard to Former Acting Director of the F.B.I. Andrew McCabe, if they’re going to go after people like (Lieutenant General) Michael Flynn for a false statement to the F.B.I. on really a tangential fact that wasn’t material to any criminal offenses, but yet you have the deputy director (Andrew McCabe)…Remember, he initiated the investigation of Michael Flynn. You have the deputy director (Andrew McCabe) lying under oath…Is there going to be a similar case brought against him or do we have two different sets of rules for people?

 

With regard to top counterintelligence F.B.I. agent, Peter Strzok, and senior F.B.I. lawyer Lisa Page, if you look at those text messages, it raises a lot of alarming things, one of which is obstruction of a congressional investigation. He said, well we don’t want to provide all the 302s (summaries of interviews of subjects of an investigation), that’ll be explosive to Congress. So, they (Peter Strzok and Lisa Page) are going back and forth acknowledging that they’re not fully complying with Congress. So, we need to look at that and obviously a host of other issues that came out of these text messages.
