Obama and Odinga: The True Story

This was posted a few years back but some of you may have missed it. It may open a few eyes but hey, that’s just my opinion.         1 Dragon


The mainstream media has justified ignoring this story based on a  “conspiracy theory” chain email (politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/465) making the rounds from some African missionaries. Politifact.com examined the email—which claims Obama gave $1MM to Odinga’s campaign—and declared it “a pants on fire”.

However, the underlying (more important issues) are verifiably true. In August and September 2006, Senator Barack  Obama traveled to South Africa, Chad, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Chad and Kenya as a congressional delegation of one (Codel Obama) (“Codel Obama” The Hill 9/7/2006)  While in Kenya, Obama consistently appeared at the side of  fellow Luo Raila Odinga (“your agent for change’), who was running for President. (“Senator Rebukes Kenya’s Corruption” Chicago Sun Times 8/29/2006) Because of his African heritage, Obama was treated as a virtual “Head of State” in Kenya While campaigning with Odinga, Obama was openly critical of governmental corruption under President Mibaki –usually a fair, if undiplomatic, criticism from an objective observer.

And You Thought the Housing Crisis Was Over!

The American Spectator

Do you remember that thing about how the banks wouldn’t lend to blacks and Hispanics because they were racists? And do you remember how they passed the Community Reinvestment Act so that banks were forced to reduce down payments practically to zero and lend to a lot of people they knew were bad credit risks? And do you remember how Wall Street bundled all these risky subprime mortgages and sold them to investors around the world so that when it became clear that those people weren’t going to be able to pay their mortgages banks everywhere were left holding the bag and all five of the Wall Street investment houses either went under or had to be bailed out by the federal government?

And do you remember how, when it was all over, liberals said it was actually the banks’ fault for “deceiving” all those people into thinking they could afford to buy homes and that the banks should be punished for it and some of those people be allowed to keep their homes anyway? And do you remember how all this cost the government close to a trillion dollars and put the whole economy in a hole that we really haven’t begun to dig ourselves out of yet?

Well, get ready because the whole thing is about to happen again.

Huma Abedin’s Brotherhood Ties Are Not Just a Family Affair

Family Security Matters

Senator John McCain’s claim that concerns about Huma Abedin are a smear based  on “a few unspecified and unsubstantiated associations” proves more  embarrassing by the day. In fact, to the extent it addressed Ms. Abedin, the letter sent to the State Department’s inspector general by  five House conservatives actually understated the case.

The letter averred that Abedin “has three family members – her late  father,  her mother and her brother – connected to Muslim Brotherhood  operatives and/or  organizations.” It turns out, however, that Abedin herself is directly  connected to Abdullah Omar Naseef, a major Muslim  Brotherhood figure involved  in the financing of al-Qaeda. Abedin worked  for a number of years at the  Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs as  assistant editor of its journal. The  IMMA was founded by Naseef, who  remained active in it for decades, overlapping  for several years with  Abedin. Naseef was also secretary general of the Muslim  World League in  Saudi Arabia, perhaps the most significant Muslim Brotherhood   organization in the world. In that connection, he founded the Rabita  Trust,  which is formally designated as a foreign terrorist organization  under American  law due to its support of al-Qaeda.

UN backs away from small arms treaty

Weasel Zippers

Guns are not to be limited by the UN.


From the Foreign Policy Blog

The United States upended a major international treaty negotiation, telling foreign delegates at the final session today that they needed more time to consider the pact. Some diplomats said that Washington is seeking another six months, pushing off any decision on the politically sensitive treaty until after the U.S. election. Russia, Indonesia, and India also asked for more time.

Today the U.S. did not grab the golden ring: an international arms treaty that would have bolstered our country’s reputation as a elader on human rights,” said Scott Stedjman, senior policy advisor for Oxfam. “Moving forward, President Obama must show the political courage required to make a strong treaty that contains strong rules on human rights a reality.”


NSA Official: “You Are the Target”

Family Security Matters

Few Americans would believe that the government has the technological   capability and wherewithal to monitor, track, log, and analyze the   everyday activities of American citizens. The idea that the National  Security  Agency, an organization responsible the collection and analysis  of foreign  communications and foreign signals intelligenc, would  operate on US soil  to turn the surveillance apparatus on the people they  are tasked with  protecting has up until now been reserved for  conspiracy theorists and  Hollywood movies.

It turns out that it’s not a conspiracy, and not only does the NSA operate  within the borders of the United States, they are assembling  detailed dossiers on every single one of us.

Studies: 24 out of 25 Gun Uses for Self Defense, Not Crime

Even after the call for police officers to strike until Americans turn in their guns went viral and Mayor Michael Bloomberg had to say he didn’t mean it “literally,” he continues his gun control rampage. He has now run a full page ad in USA Today in which he demands President Obama and Gov. Romney create and present gun control plans to the American people.

Here’s a curious question: does Bloomberg know that guns are used nearly 25 times more often for self defense than they are for crime?

Muslim Brotherhood Wields Big Influence in Obama Administration

Family Security Matters

Many in the media are condemning  Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and four other congressmen who sent a letter to the  State Department Deputy Inspector General, and the IGs of four other agencies,  calling for investigations into the possible infiltration by the Muslim  Brotherhood (MB) of the State Department and other agencies. What’s gotten the  most attention is the fact that the letter to the State Department singled out  Huma Abedin, the State Department’s Deputy Chief of Staff,  who has been a close aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton going all the  way back to her time as First Lady, during the Clinton administration. Abedin is  also the wife of the disgraced former congressman from New York, Anthony  Weiner.

This has caused quite a ruckus, with charges of McCarthyism hurled at Rep.  Bachmann, and a split among Republicans, including Senators John McCain and  Lindsey Graham, plus Speaker of the House John Boehner, who have sharply  criticized Bachmann and the letters she and the others have sent. The Left is  having a field day, the conservatives and Republicans are scrambling to contain  the issue.

But there is a bigger picture here. Should we care if indeed the Muslim  Brotherhood has gained a foothold throughout the Middle East, and if they wield  significant influence within the Obama administration? Or does that make us  Islamophobic? What shouldn’t get lost in all this are the policies of the Obama  administration that have helped facilitate the ascendency of the Muslim  Brotherhood, particularly in Egypt. Investor’s Business Daily has made it  abundantly clear that that is exactly what has taken place. In the editorial,  titled “How  Obama Engineered Mideast Radicalization,” they lay out the following  timeline:

Proof that Huma Abedin Has Muslim Brotherhood Connections

American Thinker

Michele  Bachmann and four other Republican congressional representatives requested  “that no  Muslim Brotherhood-associated entity or individual [be] placed into a position  of honor or trust within the programs and operations of the Department of State  unless he or she has publicly condemned and disclaimed the previously stated  goals of the Muslim  Brotherhood.” At no time did these congressional representatives imply that  Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff for the State Department, was “part of a  nefarious conspiracy.”

Monday,  Walid Shoebat published this 37-page  booklet entitled “Proof: Huma has Ties to Muslim Brotherhood — Countless  Documents Surface” and this was followed up with Tuesday’s update that “Huma  Abedin Served on Board with Al-Qaeda  Godfather“.  Shoebat states that the latest discoveries “include but  are not limited to “[p]roof that Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma  Abedin served on the Board of IMMA from at least 12/02/02 – 9/24/08” and that  “Al-Qaeda Godfather Abdullah Omar Naseef served on IMMA’s Advisory Board from at  least 12/02/02 – 12/03/03.”

Is  this not sufficient to vindicate Michele Bachmann’s very reasonable  concerns?
