Michelle Bachmann, Intelligence Sleuth.

Michelle Bachmann sees the Muslim Brotherhood behind every rock.  She sees it in two public officials where, apparently, there is no connection what so ever.

The time has come to recognize the world as it actually is, not as seen through the emotional eyes we have used now for so many years.  A better approach would be to reiterate this country’s principle of freedom of religion and endorse the public service of these two Muslim citizens.  There are, after all, professional people who’s job it is to look for enemies of our country.

There is a lot of amature detective work in the Republican Party.  Dick Chaney did not like the intelligence work done by professionals on the weapons of mass destruction issue.  Because of this, he set up his own intelligence operation and made certain the people in it saw things the way he did.

The professionals, of course, were right.  There were no weapons of mass destruction either.  My guess is that professionals have not found anything subversive about these two Muslim officials.

What little I know about the Muslim Brotherhood is that it is in flux.  If this is correct, it could become a worse enemy of the west, or, a better friend than it is now.

The oldest entry in the diplomacy play book is to pit groups that are unfriendly to us against each other.  The worst thing is to unit them against us.

W. Bush did a good job or uniting opposition against us.  Bachmann shows potential.

    That story even made my local paper, apparently one of the ladies she was doing a McCarthy on (the expression used in my paper) was the wife of an ex N.Y. Senator who was Jewish. We all know how friendly the Muslim Brotherhood is with Jews.

        “There are comparisons to McCarthy in our news as well.”

        Indeed. It is truly amazing how people suck that emotion up. An analysis of the facts with the opening of previously secret cold war records indicated McCarthy was…….factually correct. Those who claim to embrace logic and reason should appreciate him for his contribution that was emotionally batted down. For some reason, I don’t have faith in that happening.

            Jon: “McCarthy “factually correct”?”

            Spy allegations. His “witchhunt” was on target. However, emotion carried the day to save embarrassment for some. And the applied emotion was politically very effective, wielding heavy clout even to this very day.

          2. Henry 6:03 “His witchhunt was on target.”
            I’m old–was in High School during the witchunt. When I got to college, I had professors who were the sujects of some of the hunts. They were not communists nor had sympathy for communisam. If McCarthy ever found anything of importance, I never heard what it was.

          3. Henry

            Most haven’t. Venona was released in 1995 to the public domain.

            Not sure about your professors. I would presume there was such an outcry against the “witchhunt” that it was quite popular to become one of the “oppressed”. (Part of the emotion.) Perhaps your professors felt a need to identify with this group even though they were in good standing. Don’t really know. Their estates likely don’t have the paperwork.

            Again, the strength of the emotion makes “anti-McCarthyism” a very powerful tool. Hearsay evidence is even very powerful. If you are on that side, you need not worry. You are a winner, even if you aren’t factually correct. Please accept that comfort.

    “Huma Abedin’s father, Syed Z. Abedin, was a professor in Saudi Arabia who founded the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs, an organization supported by the Muslim World League, a Brotherhood organization. Her mother, Saleha Mahmoud Abedin, is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, the Brotherhood’s adjunct organization for women. The Brotherhood itself is in its own words, according to a captured internal document, dedicated to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house.”


    While investigating Huma Abedin’s husband Anthony Weiner last year, Eilen F. Toplansky at American Thinker reports:

    “Far more disturbing than the salacious details of Weiner’s dalliances is the fact that apparently his mother-in-law is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Furthermore, Huma Abedin’s brother, Hassan, “is listed as a fellow and partner with a number of Muslim Brotherhood members……..”

    “Which should now raise even greater concerns since Huma Abedin-Weiner is the deputy chief of staff to Hillary Clinton, the United States Secretary of State. Did any vetting occur by Clinton’s people concerning Huma Abedin, her brother Hassan, or her mother Saleha Mahmoud Abedin, and any connections with known Islamists, particularly the Muslim Brotherhood?”

    It is pretty clear that several members of her immediate family are deeply committed to a terrorist organization. You don’t see the connection because you are a fool.

    1. Jeff 12:26 Thank you for commenting.

      The references you provided are well known to anyone following this story. I could not find anything in them made one tweet of concern about the staff member involved. It would have been helpful it the sites would have included the struggles going on within the Muslim Brotherhood, it’s history of being supported by the U. S. and the broader issues involved.

      We need only recall the many relative of Bin Landen who were in the U. S. at 9/11 and were provided safe travel out of the country by the Bush Administration when everything else was shut down.

      I read your conservative references. Perhaps you would return the favor by reading something on a liberal site:

    Saddam kept the Islamic fundmentalists out of Iraq, Mubarrack did the same in Egypt, as did Gadaffy in Libya. All are gone with our support. Iran is long since been taken over by “Islamofacists”. We now have our enemies in place for all out war in the Middle east. ” Plenty of money to be made, supplying the Army with the tools of the trade”, as the song goes.

    “Michelle Bachmann sees the Muslim Brotherhood behind every rock.” She problably does. But the M.B. is not the problem. There is a defence contractor and banker behind every rock. That is the problem.

        1. entech I think that was my mistake. I started by writing she saw Muslims hiding behind every bush. When I replace bushes with rocks it should have been under, not behind. The standards here slip a little sometimes. 🙂

  5. And of course the reason we have Michelle Bachmanns in the world is because there are people willing to pay to hear what she has to say.

    They elect her to office.

    They promote her for President.

    And they will pay her a multi-million dollar salary to spew her ridiculous bu!!sh!t on Fox News when she’s voted out of office. By people with brains.

    And then she and her closeted gay husband will move to Marco Island, Florida and have a lovely retirement, while Marcus gets a little nookie on the side.

        1. Stan 4:27 “IN what way?”
          I guess that in a question about Mr. Bachmann. The entire genre of “curing” gays by the Bible, often managed by ex gays, raises eyebrows. He denies using religious conversion, what is the program his groups offers?

  6. To those fine folks who read my blogs, I am in Iowa at a small airport this week camping next to my airplane. There is wifi in the office lounge building, but for some reason it will not allow my blogs to posted. I’m ten miles out of town so there aren’t other wifi places nearby.

    Maybe I’ll ride my bike into town tomorrow and spend some time at a McDonalds. All the best to everyone.
