SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE
Of all Barack Obama’s disastrous legacies, the Middle East being bequeathed to his successor may be the most problematic. His undermining of Israel, help in toppling friendly governments, empowering of Iran and embrace of Islamic supremacists of the Muslim Brotherhood have inflamed the region. They have also contributed to the mass migration threatening the same in Europe.
As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was intimately involved in these decisions. Ditto her most influential advisor: Brotherhood-tied Huma Abedin.
Daily Caller‘s Richard Pollock reveals just-released Abedin emails showing her contemptuously discouraging ex-President Bill Clinton from addressing the pro-Israel group, AIPAC.
As Huma is universally expected to have a top job in a Hillary Clinton administration, we need to know: What role did she play in the disasters to date – and will her Islamist lineage lead to more, and worse, in the future?

“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 aspiration.”
The above is the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood, and organization founded in Egypt in 1928 for the express purpose of rebuilding human civilization in a form consistent with the customs of Shariah (Islamic) law and instituting a global Muslim paradise. The group’s own original bylaws leave little for interpretation, declaring: “The Islamic nation must be fully prepared to fight the tyrants and the enemies of Allah as a prelude to establishing an Islamic state.” As can be expected, then, the Brotherhood has been an enemy of the free world since its inception, engaging in such malignant acts as aligning itself with the National Socialist (Nazi) party in Germany during World War II, openly committing terrorist acts on its own, and more recently, supporting other terrorist organizations such as Hamas.
By any reasonable measure, the Muslim Brotherhood should be an unambiguous enemy of any American, regardless of political stripe. That is why it’s profoundly disturbing to consider that the group has steadily risen in influence within the United States, most particularly within the Democratic party. We see this broadly in the findings of a 2014 analysis that shows Islamist campaign donations overwhelmingly favor Democratic candidates over Republicans by a ratio of 12 to 1 since 9/11, but a specific and disturbing example can be found in the person of Huma Abedin, Vice Chairwoman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and reportedly longtime personal friend of Mrs. Clinton. Through her family, Abedin has a number of troubling ties to extremist Islam in general and the Muslim Brotherhood in particular. Her father is known to have founded the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, an academic publication that has been called a “sharia newspaper” by some. Her mother currently runs it, and Huma herself has worked as an editor on it.

Following a New York Post article, which released new and revealing snippets from the pages of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, a 2012 controversy about the nature of Huma Abedin’s associations, has again kicked into high gear. While some in the media have attempted to defend Abedin, and the journal, they’ve played fast and loose with the facts.
At the heart of the matter is Abedin’s involvement with an organization founded by a man named Abdullah Omar Naseef, a Saudi official who spent decades involved with organizations which would go on to be designated for engaging in terror finance.

Even before the beheading yesterday of an elderly Catholic priest as he said mass in Normandy, France’s top internal security official warned that his country was on the brink of civil war.
To avoid facing eventually a similar prospect here, we must do three things:
First, stop importing jihadists. Whatever their number, we already have too many here. We don’t need, and can’t afford to bring in more – as Europe is still doing.
Second, we must designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization and roll up its jihadist infrastructure in America – the Sharia-adherent mosques, front groups and influence operations that encourage and often enable the Islamic supremacists efforts to destroy Western civilization.
Third, we must seek nothing less than Victory over Jihad. As Ronald Reagan famously said, “There is no substitute for victory.” We cannot live with, or accept, anything less.

Last Thursday, President Obama celebrated the end of the Muslim period of fasting known as Ramadan. The company he kept on the occasion spoke volumes about his sympathies – not simply towards Islam, but for Islamic supremacism.
Now, Team Obama treats the White House invitation list as a more closely held state secret than Hillary Clinton did actual, highly classified information. But a number of known, stealthy “civilization jihadists” used the occasion to share via social media the fact that they were, once again, “inside the wire.”
As important and as usual, Mr. Obama excluded pro-American, anti-jihad Muslim reformers from his celebration. The message to their community could not be more clear: Those tied to the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood are your leaders.
It is exceedingly undesirable – and dangerous – for such a message to be assiduously conveyed by the President of the United States.
We now have evidence of contacts between Saudi officials and some of the September 11 hijackers. An old classified document has been declassified. On an equally, if not more important and current matter, what about the evidence of contacts between the Obama White House and the pro-terrorist Muslim Brotherhood? When will we be given a declassified copy of Obama’s Presidential Study Directive-11, or PSD-11, regarding the secret White House backing of the Muslim Brotherhood?
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has proposed a bill to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. It’s called the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act (S.2230).
On another equally, if not more important and current matter, what about Obama White House contacts with the Black Lives Matter movement (BLM), a support apparatus for cop-killers?
It would appear that the Obama administration may be implicated for its support for terrorism at home and abroad. This comes on top of the evidence that Obama and his then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton supported jihadist groups in Libya that killed four Americans in Benghazi.
We have witnessed recent radical Islamic terror attacks and thanks to the lack of any real opposition, the left has been able to make the failed terrorism policies of this administration into conversations about gun violence and Islamophobia. Some even blamed the GOP for the Orlanda attack.
Instead of dealing with the issues, side issues become the issues and our legislators come up with more big government programs and waste more money that will never be accounted for. They have just such a program coming up next week.
Senator Ted Cruz conducted a hearing last week in which it was revealed that the Department of Homeland Security under Jeh Johnson has been deleting counter-terrorism research and terminology. It is being done at the request of Muslim Brotherhood organizations.
When Johnson was asked about it by Cruz, he arrogantly stated that he knew nothing of it. He has no intention of checking it out either.
One might have thought the Republicans would put up a fight but they haven’t. So far they have rejected anti-gun measures that take away our Due Process rights and we must be grateful for that. However, they did cave on the terrorism issue in general.
The Republicans will take part in a vote on a new bill H.R. 5611 which throws more big government and more unaccountable money at a department that is meant to grow into a Muslim community counter-terrorism program. The Office for Partnerships to Prevent Terrorism will engage Muslims to counter the terrorism by appointing yet another unelected bureaucrat – an assistant secretary – who will be accountable to no one in Congress.
