Granted, there were times I disagreed with some of her claims during the GOP primary, such as claims she hit Texas Gov. Rick Perry with over a vaccine he mandated be given to teenage girls and that it caused retardation (as one mother told her). Making the vaccine mandatory was a legitimate question, but bringing up claims with no proof to back them up wasn't the best thing for her to do.
Just recently, Bachmann has come under fire because she, as well as Reps. Louie Gohmert of Texas, Trent Franks of Arizona, Tom Rooney of Florida, and Lynn Westmorland of Georgia have written letters with very legitimate about infiltration and influence of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) in our government. The Brotherhood has essentially taken over power in Egypt after the so-called "Arab Spring" and, according to FBI Director Robert Muller, has supported terrorism here and overseas. The Brotherhood's motto is "Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."
Nevertheless, even though the Brotherhood has been cited as an inspiration by Osama bin Laden, the Obama Regime has held meetings with them in the White House, given them our money and allowed MB affiliates to review and edit FBI training manuals. Groups linked to the MB are now calling for gun control in the US, after the Aurora shooting and the killing of St. Trayvon Martin.
And questions are being raised about Secretary of State Hillary Rotten Clinton's close advisor Huma Abedin (aka Mrs. Anthony Weiner) and possible ties to the MB.
Well that was too much for Senator and purported Republican John McLame, who took to the Senate floor to trash Bachmann and the other Representatives who wrote the letters.
Andrew McCarthy wrote the following in PJ Media, that illustrates how Bachmann is right on target, and McLame is out of line.
Senator John McCain ought to be embarrassed. So should House Speaker John Boehner and Congressman Mike Rogers, the former FBI agent who chairs the Select Committee on Intelligence.
These pillars of the Republican establishment have been championing the cause of Huma Abedin, the deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Ms. Abedin’s name arose, along with several others, in connection with questions pressed by five conservative House Republicans regarding Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the United States government. The GOP establishment, led by McCain, Boehner, and Rogers, has been slamming Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, one of the five House conservatives, over her refusal to back down from concerns over Ms. Abedin.
Here are four things, among many, that we now know:
1. Huma Abedin’s mother, Dr. Saleha S. Mahmood Abedin (hereafter, Saleha Abedin), is an influential member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s division for women, the Muslim Sisterhood. She is also a zealous advocate of sharia law’s oppression of women — which McCain himself condemned in a 2011 interview with Der Spiegel.
2. Not only that: Saleha Abedin is a board member of the International Islamic Council for Dawa and Relief. The IICDR has been long banned in Israel for supporting Hamas. It is also part of the Union for Good, which is a formally designated international terrorist organization under federal law. The Union for Good is led by Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the chief sharia jurist of the Muslim Brotherhood. He is the world’s most influential Islamic cleric, and has issued fatwas endorsing suicide bombings against Israel and terrorist attacks against American forces in Iraq.
According to Walid Shoebat, a former MB member, Abedin also served on the board of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs from around December 2002 to September 2008. From December 2002 to 2003, someone named Abdullah Omar Naseef served on the IMMA Advisory Board.
Who is Abdullah Omar Naseef?
According to a document attached to Shoebat's website, Naseef, in 1988, founded the Rabita Trust, which was designated by the US Government as a terrorist entity on October 12, 2001 "for its close ties to senior al Qaida leadership and for providing logistical and financial support to Al Qaida." Naseef is also listed on page 5 as defendant in a civil lawsuit by World Trade Center properties and Silverstein WTC Management, holding the defendents responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
FreeRepublic.com even posted these links Huma Abedin had with Naseef back in 2007. So, not only did Huma Abedin have family ties to the MB, she served on a board with someone linked to al-Queda for a year. And that doesn't raise red flags with you, John McLame?
Over the weekend, McCarthy wrote another piece for National Review Online, on how McLame stated his opposition to the MB over a year ago to the German publication Der Speigel. But that was then, and apparently McLame has just fallen back to his usual habit of attacking conservatives.
Quite frankly, I've had it with that pathetic bastard McLame. If you want to thank anyone for the election of Richard Milhous Obama and this nightmare America has lived under for the last three years, thank John McLameattack Donald Rumsfeld every chance he could get, but he's unwilling to go after corrupt, racist Attorney General Eric Holder with the same vigor.
John McLame will attack Tea Party members as "hobbits" just for calling for fiscal restraint in national spending, and was slow to defend Sarah Palin in all the vicious attacks on her. But that pathetic old S.O.B. apparently has no problems propping up people linked to the radical Islamism just so he can stay on Hillary Rotten's good side.
I feel the same way about that crybaby coward John Boehner and these other eunuch RINOs. He should not be Speaker of the House for the cowardice and lack of leadership he has shown.
Instead of being attacked with the "McCarthyism" slur (and let's not forget, McCarthy was, in many ways, right in theory), Bachmann and the other Representatives should be defended and their legitimate concerns given a close look. McClame and these RINO cowards need to get an earful from those of us who are concerned not just about our nations economic security, but our national security.
