"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague." -Cicero
MICHELLE BACHMANN DOUBLES DOWN, OTHER TURNCOAT REPUBLICAN LEADERS SUPPORT MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD
Perhaps Frank Gaffney is too much of a gentleman by letting McCain and Boehner (not to mention the other RINO, Lindsay Graham off the hook to easy blaming their ignorance for fighting against Michelle Bachman and others, while taking a stand for the Muslim Brotherhood. If ignorance or stupidity is the case, that somehow the Speaker of the House, and Senior Senators like McCain and Lindsay are unaware of the insidious nature of the Muslim Brotherhood and Huma Abedin's family ties to the Brotherhood (and the Muslim Sisterhood) then that is more than enough reason for American's to call for their collective and immediate resignation. THIS IS HUGE. We are at WAR with Radical Islam, hello? We expect this from Obama, but what the Republican leadership has demonstrated to all of America is that AT BEST they are inept and blind or at worst, they are purposely working in conjunction with a sworn enemy whose Trojan Horse attack is working against the U.S. government perfectly.- W.E.
When Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) sent her letter regarding Huma Abedin to U.S. intelligence and security agencies, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) was not the only one to recoil: Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the first Muslim ever to be elected to the U.S. Congress, lashed out as well.
Part of a group of Democrats calling Bachmann's concerns a "baseless witch-hunt," Ellison actually said Bachmann should apologize to Abedin. (But as I've highlighted in a different post, to brush off Bachmann's concerns this easily would be to overlook at least three alleged ties between Abedin's family and the Muslim Brotherhood.)
Instead of apologizing, Bachmann is doubling down, and has added Ellison's name to the list of U.S. officials whom she believes should be investigated for ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Ellison has responded by saying Bachmann's allegations are false, and that he believes she just wants attention.
