The White House is preparing to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a foreign terrorist organization, a measure that would impose economic and travel sanctions against the group.  “The president has consulted with his national security team and leaders in the region who share his concern, and this designation is working its way through the internal process,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in an emailed statement on April 30.

The move seems to be entirely logical and fair, since the Brotherhood is the religious foundation of Islamic terrorist groups, such as al-Qaeda, Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and ISIS.  It not only serves as their ideological wellspring, but also cooperates with them on multiple levels, including financing and providing material support for their operations.  It is a fact that before ascending to the highest positions of ISIS and al-Qaeda, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Osama bin Laden, and Ayman al-Zawahiri belonged to a common ideological precursor: the Muslim Brotherhood.  All these groups are bound by the common ideological belief in a global caliphate governed by Islamic law.  The Brotherhood’s longstanding motto is “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 hope.  [Allah is greater!]”  The Brotherhood has provided the platform used to indoctrinate young men into Islamism and a bridge for recruits to graduate into the more violent Islamism.  Factions within the groups have also supported each other based on shared goals, common enemies, and support for a united Islamist front.

Thus, if it walks, talks, and acts like a terrorist, it is probably a terrorist and deserves to be treated as such, right?  “Wrong,” say the mainstream media.  “Trump wants to hurt Muslim Brotherhood,” whines the Huffington Post, blaming it all on the administration’s “Islamophobia” and “conspiracy theories [promoted by the hate groups in the U.S., many of them with deep ties to Bolton and Pompeo] attempting to tie political opponents and prominent American Muslim organizations to the Muslim Brotherhood.”  Are you not seeing an irony in that statement, HuffPo?  You have just created a great conspiracy theory yourself!

CNN, The WSJ, and many others describe the group with respect and admiration and parrot the notion that the Brotherhood “denounced violence decades ago” and embraced democratic methods.  It even formed political parties throughout the region!  Labeling them terrorists, they say, would hurt American diplomacy and alliances, as well as the whole democratic process in the Middle East.  Also, they argue, the George W. Bush and Obama administrations did not recognize the Brotherhood terrorists.  They were so much smarter than Trump!

Or were they not?

Jihad At The Border

Frontpage Mag

 

 

On Sunday, April 28, 2019, CBS News program, 60 Minutes reported on The Situation At The Southern Border.

Here is how the 60 Minutes’ report began:

Earlier this month, President Trump placed Kevin McAleenan in charge of the Department of Homeland Security. The president fired his previous DHS chief, Kirstjen Nielsen, because he said he wanted to go in a tougher direction. As the new acting secretary, McAleenan is facing the largest wave of illegal crossings at the U.S.-Mexico border in a decade. 100,000 migrants were detained just last month. So we went to McAllen, Texas, one of the busiest sections on the border, to see for ourselves. We were surprised how many families were crossing, where they were detained and how quickly they were released. We asked Secretary McAleenan how he plans to manage the crisis and navigate what may be the most difficult job in Washington.

It is worth noting that 60 Minutes described the situation as a “crisis” a reality denied by many Democrats.

The 60 Minutes team was given access to the McAllen Border Patrol Station where, at the time, was housing 551 aliens who were being processed after they crossed into the United States.

Here is an excerpt from the 60 Minutes report:

 

Chief Patrol Agent Rudy Karisch says they are struggling to care for the increasing numbers of families.

Sharyn Alfonsi: What are the agents having to do to deal with this new population that’s coming across?

Agent Rudy Karisch: Forty percent of my workforce right now is dedicated to the processing, to the care and feeding, to the hospital watch. So that takes that 40 percent away from their border security mission.

Thus the ability of the already beleaguered U.S. Border Patrol to secure our porous and dangerous southern border has been diminished by 40%.

Those who study history, specifically World War II know that “D-Day,” also known as “Operation Overlord” was only successful because of a diversion created by the Allies known as the “Calais Deception” that was officially labeled “Operation Fortitude.”

General George Patton was put in charge of a phantom division that consisted of inflatable tanks and trucks that from the air, created the elaborate but false illusion of a large contingent of soldiers preparing to attack Germany at the Pas-de-Calais rather than at Normandy where the attack would actually be mounted.

The Germans were thus conned into splitting up their defensive forces, leaving Normandy vulnerable to the Allies on June 6, 1944.

Today our Border Patrol and, indeed, the entire immigration system, is being inundated by huge numbers of illegal aliens forcing the Border Patrol to deploy many of its agents to assignment that remove them from the primary mission of securing vast stretches of unsecured border.

Consequently, stretches of our southern border suffer a lack of resources to prevent the un-inspected entry of aliens and like narcotics and other contraband, including potentially weapons.

While the media focuses on “migrant families” seeking entry to flee poverty and violence in their home countries, they ignore that not all families are actually families but may be committing fraud.  In fact, DHS is now sending ICE agents to the border who have expertise in identifying fraud documents because children are being, in a manner of speaking, “re-cycled” arriving at the border with adults who claim to be their parents.  Once released in the United States, the children are sent back to Mexico where they then return to the border with another set of “parents” who have no relationship to them.

Trump Considers Designating Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Org

Finally, a U.S. president who understands the threat.

The Trump administration is considering officially designating the Islamist group known as the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, a policy unimaginable during the terrorist-friendly Obama administration which championed the group as an ally.

“The president has consulted with his national security team and leaders in the region who share his concern, and this designation is working its way through the internal process,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement April 30.

The Trump administration’s deliberations over the prospective designation come weeks after President Trump designated Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as an FTO to combat that theocratic dictatorship’s global campaign of terrorism. The designation gives the government more tools to fight terrorism.

“This unprecedented step, led by the Department of State, recognizes the reality that Iran is not only a State Sponsor of Terrorism, but that the IRGC actively participates in, finances, and promotes terrorism as a tool of statecraft,” Trump said in a statement. This designation, which took effect April 15, was “the first time that the United States has ever named a part of another government as a FTO.”

As Joseph Klein previously wrote at FrontPage, the mullahs’ regime “lives and breathes Islamic extremism, which it seeks to export through its global jihad terrorist network,” adding that the “IRGC sits at the center of that terrorist network,” providing “funding, equipment, training, and logistical support to terrorist proxy groups, including most notably Hezbollah in Lebanon and Syria.” The IRGC has also participated in attacks on Americans.

Although the Muslim Brotherhood still enjoys support throughout the Arab world, Bahrain, Egypt, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and the United Arab Emirates have already designated the group a terrorist organization, The Epoch Times reports. The Brotherhood-backed HAMAS organization has been designated a terrorist organization by the United States. Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri was previously a member of the Brotherhood.

The UAE designated the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Brotherhood affiliate in the U.S. that poses as a Muslim civil rights group, a terrorist organization in 2014. In the U.S., CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in 2007 in an alleged criminal conspiracy to support both HAMAS and the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi reportedly asked President Trump April 9 for the designation during a private consultation. Sisi overthrew the Muslim Brotherhood-backed president, Mohamed Morsi, in 2013, and then won election in his own right the year after. Since then he has cracked down on Muslim militants.

National Security Advisor John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reportedly favor the designation, but officials at the Pentagon and elsewhere in the administration have been dragging their heels.

The Obama administration was infested with Muslim Brotherhood backers.

For example, Hillary Clinton’s ties to the Brotherhood are well-documented.

Democrats and Their Media Pretend Muslim Terrorism Is Manufactured

American Thinker

By Rich Logis

Ask your friends, family, and neighbors if they’re aware that the FBI recently thwarted a Muslim terrorist who allegedly wanted to blow up and shoot up the White House, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, and a synagogue.

Chances are, they haven’t heard about Hasher Jallal Taheb, a 21-year-old native-born American from the Atlanta, Ga. metropolitan area who was arrested after a months-long undercover investigation.  If those you inquire with heard about Taheb, ask them if they know he was a jihadist who changed his name and believed that jihad is an obligation and pathway to martyrdom.

You want to talk about a national emergency?  How about the frequency with which so many Democrats, as well as the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex), cover up radical Islamic terrorism?

Democrat-Defined Terrorism

To paraphrase Orwell’s Animal Farm, all terrorists are created equal, but some are created more equal than others.  Over the last few years, with the unfortunate rise in white supremacy-related violence and murders, Democrats and the DMIC have moved the goal posts on who’s a terrorist and who isn’t.  Actually, I don’t mind their expansion of the term, as I can now claim as terrorists some members of Black Lives Matter, protesters who block active-duty ambulances, and pro-fascists who identify themselves as “Antifa.”

Benghazi Survivor: ‘Anybody With Half a Brain Can See It Was Due to Political Reasons’

Townhall

Beth Baumann

Last week, United States District Judge Royce Lamberth ordered multiple senior State Department officials under the Obama administration to answer Judicial Watch’s questions related to Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and the Sept. 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi.

During Industry Day at the Range at SHOT Show 2019, I had the opportunity to talk with Kris “Tanto” Paronto, one of the men who survived the attack in Benghazi.

Kris: They’ve been answering questions so they knew what was going on. What bothers me is they knew what was going on. And they admitted it. They left us. They left us behind. Anybody with half a brain can see it was due to political reasons.

Bottom line is this: There has to be a politician that goes in there and says, ‘You know what? We left these guys behind. And we tried to cover it up. And then we lied about it. And we utilized our own justice system and our own intel agency to hand off responsibility.’ And now they’re being held responsible, whether it’s jail time or mass humiliation…I don’t have a problem with that. It’s necessary. There’s enough information out there to show that they lacked any integrity…

Kris: With “13 Hours” being out there, we’ll always memorialize the guys. Now the question is, are we going to have political officials, the Comeys, the Brennans, the Hillary Clintons, go in there and try to cover it up?

Paronto said he continues to talk about that tragic day in Benghazi because it’s important to help memorialize his friends, but because it’s also healing for him. Talking about losing his friends has been a way for him to deal with what took place on September 11, 2012.

Do Pakistan’s Blasphemy Laws Trump America’s 1st Amendment?

The new globalization of Sharia.

The religious police who patrol the precincts of Twitter recently slapped Jamie Glazov, the editor of Frontpagemag.com and the author of Jihadist Psychopath: How He Is Charming, Seducing, and Devouring Us, with anti-free speech blasphemy codes. The social media giant threatened Glazov with the Section 37 of PECA-2016, Section 295 B and Section 295 C of the Pakistan penal code.

Jihad Watch‘s Robert Spencer has documented how Twitter, along with other leading social media venues, is enforcing Sharia compliance. In the new world of Western dhimmitude, Twitter, acting on behalf of the Pakistan government, is informing American citizens that they could be imprisoned or hanged for insulting Islam.
