The next, necessary step in the national security course-correction President Donald Trump has promised requires the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as what it is – a terrorist organization.
For years, presidents of both parties have labored under the illusion that the Brothers were actually useful and reliable “partners” in countering what was euphemistically known as “violent extremism.” Among other things, that epic strategic mistake prompted President Obama to work with the Muslim Brotherhood to supplant friendly governments across the Middle East.
President Trump’s predecessors also legitimated and enabled the Brotherhood’s operatives here. Yet, they are Sharia-supremacists, who share completely the ideology and agenda of terrorist organizations like al Qaeda, the Islamic State and Boko Haram.
Mr. Trump’s oath of office requires him to defend our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. To do so, he must designate the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood.
Not only does the Brotherhood inspire jihad and promote the imposition of Islamic law, it is involved in violent acts of terrorism.
Not only does the Muslim Brotherhood-the most influential Islamist group in the world-inspire jihad and promote the imposition of Islamic law, it is involved in violent acts of terrorism. For this reason, the State Department should designate it a Foreign Terrorist Organization. Here are six reasons why.
The shockingly high figure comes from one of LTC(R) Shaffer’s sources involved with the refugee flows.
Last week we saw CIA head John Brennan testify that ISIS has “a large cadre” of foreign fighters to serve in attacking the West, and also that ISIS was probably using refugee flows as a means of vectoring its agents into the West. Now a former high-level intelligence officer claims that he has a source that gives a more specific figure. At least fifteen percent of refugees are ISIS, according to LTC(R) Anthony Shaffer of the London Center for Policy Research. The claim came in an interview Shaffer gave to a radio show hosted by Larry O’Connor and Brian Wilson on WMAL. (You can listen to the interview here.)
“I got the percentage from one of my sources. We’re talking about, right now, in the refugee stream, between 15-17% of individuals coming through the refugee stream are ISIS.”
Family Security Matters

In 2011, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton promised the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to use “some old fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming” against those whose exercise of free speech “we abhor.”
At the time, she had in mind specifically perpetrators of what the OIC, the Muslim Brotherhood, other Islamic supremacists and their enablers on the Left call “defamation of Islam.” But the same playbook – in the tradition of Mrs. Clinton’s mentor, Saul Alinsky – is now being followed with a vengeance against what is abhorred by the cabal best described as the Red-Green Axis.
Much in evidence among such “old-fashioned techniques” now being employed is what’s known as “the Big Lie.” It entails the endless repetition of outrageous falsehoods to defame, and ultimately silence, one’s political opponents.
Three good men Donald Trump has selected for key strategic and national security positions are currently getting the Big Lie treatment: his White House Counsel Steve Bannon, Attorney General-designate Senator Jeff Sessions, and incoming National Security Advisor Lieutenant General Michael Flynn. They are being relentlessly vilified as “racists,” “bigots” and “haters.”

Four years ago, then-Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and four other legislators requested an investigation of whether a top Hillary Clinton aide was helping align State Department policies with the objectives of the Muslim Brotherhood. The lawmakers cited evidence that Huma Abedin had longstanding family ties to those Islamic supremacists.
No inquiry was conducted after Republican John McCain denounced Ms. Bachmann in the U.S. Senate. Worse yet, the resulting destruction of her political career discouraged others in Congress from rooting out Islamist influence operations in Washington.
Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails indicate her team got Senator McCain to attack Ms. Bachmann. But for that cynical, bipartisan effort to “shoot the messenger” and protect Huma Abedin, some of the myriad national security and legal disasters in which Huma has lately been implicated might have come to light years ago – and perhaps been prevented.

“Why aren’t we talking about Huma Abedin and her ties to the Muslim Brotherhood? Why aren’t we talking about the fact that she was an editor for a Sharia newspaper?” — Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.), interview on CNN, Aug. 23, 2016
ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, CNN and FOX, which constitute the mainstream media—dig up videos from 11 years ago on Donald Trump to degrade him, but they refuse to report on Hillary Clinton’s Muslim deputy chief aide Human Abedin’s Islamic conquest of America. Abedin constitutes ‘soft jihad’ against America and she’s enjoyed Hillary Clinton’s ear for over a dozen years, in addition to Clinton’s time as Secretary of State.
This past week, FBI Director James B. Comey discovered more classified emails from Hillary Clinton with national security risks not only on Abedin’s computers, but her husband Anthony Weiner, a sexual pervert tossed out of the U.S. House of Representatives several years ago.
All the while, Obama employs at least 10 Muslims in the White House to guide him and direct his onslaught of Islam in America:
