Let YOUR Senator Know the Muslim Brotherhood is a Terrorist Organization

ACT for America sent out an email urging voters to support Senate Bill 2230 which if passed and - GOD HELP US - President Barack Hussein Obama signs into law will force the State Department to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. Since a lot of this designation has a lot to do with cutting off funds flowing from the USA to the Muslim Brotherhood, this would affect the many Muslim Brotherhood front groups on American soil. These front groups are actually quite numerous and pretend to be representatives of Moderate non-violent Muslims seeking to ensure the same Constitutional rights that all Americans have been afforded. The problem: These front groups are a pack of liars that either outright support the Muslim Brotherhood or use stealth to hide their support.

Before I share that very important email, read these various excerpts below that indeed demonstrate the evil and violent nature of the Muslim Brotherhood so you can make an informed decision to place your name on the ACT for America form letter that will go out to the correct Senators representing your State. (In case you need no further education on listing the MB as a terrorist organization, just skip to the signature link provided by ACT for America.)

On November 3rd Sen. Cruz (R-Texas) filed (S. 2230) and Rep. Diaz-Balart (R-Florida) filed (H.R.3892) both bills titled "Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015". These bills will require the Secretary of State to submit a report to Congress on the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization, and for other purposes. (Here is Cruz's bill S. 2230 the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act; Submitted by Frank Livingston; Investigation Project on Terrorism; 11/21/15 15:36)

WASHINGTON (CN) - The House Judiciary Committee is calling on the U.S. State Department to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, while some say the effort is misguided.
The legislation, introduced and sponsored by presidential candidate and Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, would bar anyone with ties to the group from entering the United States.
The bill would also subject those who provide material support to the group to federal criminal penalties, and would force financial institutions to block all transactions involving the group's assets, according to a committee statement.
"The Muslim Brotherhood's embrace of terrorism and the very real threat it poses to American lives and the national security of the United States make it long overdue for designation," Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said.
The committee approved the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act by a vote of 17-10 on Wednesday. … (Cruz Bill Takes Aim at Muslim Brotherhood; By  BRITAIN EAKIN; Courthouse News Service; 2/26/16 Last Update: 8:22 AM PT)

Very typical of the Left Wing Media the above article makes sure to include this bit of misinformation:

The bill has drawn some criticism from Middle East experts who say the bill ignores historical context and the evolution of the group's ideologies.
"They have disavowed violence for some time now, finding it counter-productive and also counter to Islam," said Musa al-Gharbi, managing editor at the Southwest Initiative for the Study of Middle East Conflicts, a program based at the University of Arizona.
The text of the bill builds a case for the terror designation based on the group's early ideologies espoused by its founder, Hassan al-Banna, which it says embrace violent jihad and promote terrorism. (Ibid.)

The author of the news article failed to do her homework or knowingly participated in Muslim Apologist lies about the radical violent nature of the Muslim Brotherhood. Quoting Musa al-Gharbi about the MB disavowing violence was pure propaganda at the time of the so-called disavowment and totally irrelevant since the Egyptian military took over the government ousting Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi. The coup government then proceeded to illegalize and proclaim the MB a terrorist organization. Since that time the MB has been very openly committing acts of terrorism against the Egyptian military, tourists and of course Jews.

This July 10, 2015 article shows the terrorism of the Muslim Brotherhood totally exposing the Musa al-Gharbi assertion that the MB has renounced violence as an outright LIE:

Egypt, on the forefront in fighting terrorism, remains committed to eradicating Islamist extremism. “There is a global campaign of terrorism, and the only way to confront it is through a comprehensive global response that deals with the entirety of the threat,” the Egyptian Foreign Ministry said in a statement this week following a wave of attacks on government targets.

On Thursday, a roadside bomb detonated wounding 20 Egyptian policemen in North Sinai’s provincial capital of El-Arish. The policemen were traveling on a bus on leave in the volatile area. Three of the wounded were in critical condition, reported AFP. Also on Thursday, an Egyptian police detective was shot dead outside his home in the governorate of Beni Suef by unknown attackers. He was shot in the neck and chest, according to the Health Ministry in the province.

Egypt has been facing a wave of terrorists attacks launched by the Muslim Brotherhood after the removal of Morsi. The Foreign Ministry held a press conference over the weekend to discuss with the press the latest attacks in the Sinai. In a memo provided at the conference, the Foreign Ministry wrote:

At the core of this terrorist scourge is the toxic ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood, which continues to spread hate and fear across the globe. In Egypt today we still witness the negative effect of the political inspired by Sayd Qutb, the godfather of the Muslim Brotherhood and his followers who championed violence manifested in their foiled assassination of president Gamal Abdel Nasser in 1954. His anti-western, anti-Semitic and anti-secularist school of thought continues today to serve as a manifesto for radical groups such as Al-Qaeda and Daesh.

So it is quite clear the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization! That Islamic organization is NOT an emblem for peace but rather is a committed Western-hating and Jew-hating organization devoted to establishing a global Caliphate in which non-Muslims must convert to Islam or if lucky in their view submit as sub-class human beings living under the despotism of Islamic Supremacism.

AND YET America’s most Leftist President Barack Hussein Obama resists naming the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. AND Obama refuses to acknowledge that MB affiliates in the USA pay stealth homage to the MB. Here is another excerpt dated from today that demonstrates Obama treason to American National Security and the protection of American lives:

On Nov. 15th, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) placed 2 Islamic groups on its list of foreign terrorist organizations, naming them as front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood: the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and the Muslim American Society,(MAS).

On Dec. 22nd, Obama administration officials met with leaders of both these terrorist organizations to work together and strategize a counter effort on the decision by the UAE.

But Obama isn’t only defying the UAE with this pro-terrorist effort, he’s also defying the FBI and Dept. Of Justice prosecutors as well.

The FBI cut ties with CAIR after identifying them “not an appropriate liaison partner” after discovering their ties to Hamas, which the U.S. classifies as a terrorist organization.

Prosecutors in the DOJ implicated CAIR as conspiring to fundraise for Hamas in the Holy Land Foundation court case, which was the biggest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history.

Right out in plain daylight, Obama is working hard to forward the efforts of the Muslim Brotherhood and it’s [sic] affiliated terrorist organizations. Meanwhile, conservative Americans are being labelled as ‘domestic terrorists’. America has indeed been infiltrated and is being run by a weaker enemy…radical Islamic jihadists.

The FBI severed contacts with CAIR in 2009 as “not an appropriate liaison partner” for the bureau because of evidence linking the group and its founders to Hamas, which the U.S. lists as a terrorist organization.

Hamas runs Gaza and was founded as an offshoot of the jihadist organization the Muslim Brotherhood, based in Egypt.

Several CAIR staffers have been convicted on terrorism-related charges and CAIR founder Omar Ahmad allegedly told a group of Muslims they are in America not to assimilate but to help assert Islam’s rule over the country.

Nonetheless, on Monday, State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke said, “The United States does not consider these U.S. organizations (CAIR and MAS) to be terrorist organizations” and had asked the UAE for more information on the decision.

When a reporter noted the head of CAIR has been a White House guest and frequently visits the State Department, Rathke claimed CAIR was just one of many “faith-based groups” which had met with U.S. government officials.

“CAIR is a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States, as is the Muslim Student Association, and they try to present a storefront view of moderate, mainstream Muslim thought when, in fact, they are just the opposite.”

…  CAIR is cited several times in the text of the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act as a Brotherhood-controlled entity.

“They (CAIR) tend to be the mask covering up violent jihad across the globe. They pretend to be the mouthpiece of moderation when, in fact, they are anything but,” said Bachmann.

For its part, CAIR described its terrorist designation by the UAE as “shocking and bizarre.”

Indeed, why would the UAE do such a thing when its own ambassador has praised CAIR in the past and the country has allowed the group to raise funds there?

Resist the Obama Islamification of America. Read the ACT for America email below that provides a link to send your Senator from your State to get on board with the Senate version of S.2230 - Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015 - which has passed the House and is now waiting for the Senate to join.

ACT for America Action Alert

Last week, the House Judiciary Committee passed a bill that calls on the State Department to classify the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group.  The bill, H.R. 3892, the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act, introduced by Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25), was voted out of committee by a 17-10 party-line vote.  We expect it to be brought before the full House for a vote.
Specifically, H.R. 3892 states that it is the “sense of Congress that the Muslim Brotherhood meets the criteria for classification as a foreign terrorist organization.”  As Amended by the House Committee, Secretary of State John Kerry would have 60 days to issue a detailed report to Congress indicating whether the Brotherhood meets the criteria qualifying it as a terrorist group. The Senate's version of the bill is S. 2230 and the details about the legislation can be found HERE.
This bill is a very important one.  Once signed into law, it would be a crime for anyone in the U.S. to provide material support to the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Treasury Department could force banks to block financial transactions related to the Brotherhood.  The bill lists U.S. groups that include the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) as groups under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood.
We thank the House of Representatives for its leadership on this issue.  It is now time for the Senate to act.  That chamber's companion bill, S. 2230, the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015 has been introduced by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).  At this time, it has only two cosponsors, Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and Ron Johnson (R-WI).  
We need members of the U.S. Senate to hear from you.  Please tell them to demonstrate the leadership that we’ve seen in the House by acting quickly on this bill.  
Please click here to send a letter or make a phone call to your U.S. Senator in support of this bill. We know you are busy, so we’ve done all of the work for you. All you have to do is add your individual information and your voice will go directly to your two U.S. Senators. [If you have Senator Hatch or Johnson as your representative, please be sure to add a quick "thank you" for co-sponsoring the legislation.]  
Thank you for ALL that you do for our great nation.  If each of us does just a little, together we can accomplish a lot.

Judicial Watch Weekly Update

America owes a debt of gratitude to Judicial Watch for staying on the Dems and Hillary Clinton for underhanded activities and coverups. In an email update from JW dated February 26, Hillary is exposed as a duplicitous liar with her nefarious minion Huma Abedin. Although I’m less interested the last article in the email exposes the anti-Christian attitudes in the U.S. Air Force Academy via the hypocrisy of allowing a witchcraft religion to practice yet shuts down Christianity.

Federal Court Grants Judicial Watch Discovery on Clinton Email Issue

Your Judicial Watch has achieved another remarkable breakthrough in our tireless efforts to get to the bottom of the Clinton email scandal. Earlier this week, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan granted Judicial Watch's motion for discovery into whether the State Department and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton deliberately thwarted the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for six years. The developments come in a Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit that seeks records about the controversial employment status of Huma Abedin, former Deputy Chief of Staff to Clinton. The lawsuit was reopened because of revelations about Clinton's separate email records.

Judge Sullivan initially announced his ruling from the bench during a hearing this week and, over the objections of the State Department, authorized Judicial Watch to submit a plan for "narrowly-tailored discovery." Judge Sullivan is also considering whether to order the State Department to subpoena all the emails on the email system.

I issued the following statement on behalf of JW in response to the ruling:

Judge Sullivan's ruling granting Judicial Watch's request for discovery is a major victory for the public's right to know the truth about Hillary Clinton's email system. The court-ordered discovery will help determine why the State Department and Mrs. Clinton, even despite receiving numerous FOIA requests, kept the record system secret for years. Our proposed discovery, which will require court approval, will include testimony of current and former officials of the State Department. While Mrs. Clinton's testimony may not be required initially, it may happen that her testimony is necessary for the court to resolve the legal issues about her unprecedented email practices.

The full transcript of the historic court hearing can be found here. I encourage you review the transcript to see how Judge Sullivan approached the issue. Here's a taste:

Here you have Mrs. Clinton and Abedin and their private counsel deciding, after neither Mrs. Clinton nor Ms. Abedin were government employees, what e-mails are federal records, and what e-mails are not. It just boggles the mind that the State Department allowed this circumstance to arise in the first place. It's just very, very, very troubling. And I think that whatever opinion the Court writes, the first sentence will be: This is a very troubling case, for a host of reasons.

Rather than accept graciously the court's ruling, Hillary Clinton instead attacked Judicial Watch this morning as "right wing." She made the comments during a MSNBC interview. She endorsed the nasty comments of her spokesman on CNN and elsewhere in response the court ruling.

Hillary Clinton is clearly upset that Judicial Watch has once again stymied her email cover-up. We won't be deterred by Mrs. Clinton's attacks. (You can check our recent interview with the Wall Street Journal here for a reality check on what this all means.)

Shortly after April 15, Judicial Watch discovery will commence into the Clinton email system. This is a major achievement and I can't say enough about all my JW colleagues who secured this court victory. And I can't say enough about the generous financial support of our Judicial Watch members who make our work possible. Thank you!

History Comes Full Circle as Judicial Watch Releases New Document in Whitewater Criminal Corruption Case against Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton's current legal predicaments caused by her email misconduct may be a surprise to some Americans. But it isn't surprising to Judicial Watch.

This week we released an unprecedented accounting of the evidence that would have been used at a criminal trial against Hillary Clinton in the Whitewater case. The April 1998 memo by the Office of Independent Counsel, titled "HRC Order of Proof," includes the names of 121 witnesses, discussions of evidence, and aspects of grand jury testimony to be used at trial, forming a virtual road map to the sweeping criminal case against the Whitewater conspirators.

Prosecutors ultimately decided not to indict Mrs. Clinton, calculating that they could not win the complicated, largely circumstantial case against such a high-profile figure. But while the general outline of the case is known, the "Order of Proof" is definitive and highly detailed, nailing down a number of disputed issues. Among them:

• The cover-up of Clinton financial misdeeds in Arkansas began in earnest on a specific date: March 7, 1992.

• Documents from the Rose Law Firm-Mrs. Clinton's former empl the firm's "parking lot that night," demonstrating that Mrs. Clinton and oyer at the center of the growing scandal-were passed to a campaign aide inher Rose Law Firm Partners-Webster Hubbell and Vincent Foster-were early participants in the cover-up.

• There was a furious Clinton effort to locate documents and shut down witnesses.

• Media coverage of the Clintons led to renewed interest by the Resolution Trust Corp. in the corrupt bank at the center of the story, Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan. Madison was "already on the list of S&Ls to be revisited," having been the subject of earlier probes and a prior criminal case.

• Tulsa-based senior Resolution Trust Corp. investigator Jean Lewis-later the subject of a vituperative campaign of personal destruction by the Clinton side-was dispatched "by her local supervisor and someone in Washington to go to Little Rock to determine if Whitewater had caused [Madison] a loss."

• Lewis visited Little Rock in April 1992, and drew up Criminal Referral C-0004, which was sent "directly to the Little Rock U.S. Attorney and Little Rock FBI on 9/1/92."

• U.S. Attorney Paula Casey-a Clinton associate-and the Little Rock FBI office agreed to hold the criminal referral "in abeyance until after the election." Meanwhile, the FBI and RTC investigations moved forward. Nine more RTC criminal referrals involving Madison-related schemes were drawn up.

• A Justice Department probe was underway on July 20, 1993, when search warrants were obtained in Little Rock for Whitewater-related investigations. That night in Washington, Vincent Foster, the former Rose Law Firm partner serving as both the Clintons' personal lawyer and White House deputy counsel, committed suicide.

• Two senior Justice Department officials-David Margolis and Philip Heymann-are on the "Order of Proof" witness list. In the immediate aftermath of Foster's death, Margolis and Heymann received White House Counsel Bernard Nussbaum's consent to search Foster's office. Then Nussbaum "reneged."

• Heymann-the Deputy Attorney General of the United States-was "[v]ery upset over the matter" and "[a]sked Bernie what he was trying to hide."

• Numerous witnesses would testify they saw documents being removed from Foster's office, including papers that resembled the Rose Law Firm billing records-under subpoena at that time and nowhere to be found.

Micah Morrison, our chief investigative reporter, first reported on this document in the Daily Caller.

This is an important and timely document. It shows that there was significant evidence against Mrs. Clinton in Whitewater. The parallels with the email scandal-the stonewalling of document production, the 'missing' documents, the lies and evasions-are striking.

The new document follows on the heels of JW's release last month of 246 pages of previously undisclosed Office of Independent Counsel (OIC) internal memos on criminal charges against Hillary Clinton in the Whitewater investigation.

Then, a few weeks ago, JW reporter Morrison provided even more details on the case, based upon a newly obtained confidential document. The document included a description of the case against Mrs. Clinton "in the legal terms of an indictment."

This detailed memo adds considerably to our understanding of Mrs. Clinton's unethical-and likely criminal-past. The wealth of material uncovered by Judicial Watch in recent months strongly suggests that if she weren't First Lady at the time, she would have been successfully prosecuted in federal court. We also proved that an actual draft indictment of Mrs. Clinton is being held by the National Archives, a document the agency refuses to turn over in response to our Freedom of Information Act requests. Our battle to get that document is now in federal court, so stay tuned for more.

Air Force Academy Celebrates Witchcraft and Voodoo While Demeaning Christianity

There's something seriously amiss in the United States Air Force Academy. We received documents from the Air Force Academy revealing that in 2014 and 2015, the Academy used its "Chapel Tithes and Offering Fund" to pay for cadets to participate in worship services featuring witchcraft, "Faery Magick," and voodoo. The records reveal that the Air Force Academy paid to send cadets to a Wiccan festival in Denver in May 2014 and a Denver Witches Ball in October of the same year.

The Tithes and Offering Fund, though funded by "free-will donations," is also defined as "an instrumentality of the United States Government." So, yes, all taxpayers have an interest in this issue.

According to a promotional brochure obtained by Judicial Watch, a group called "Spiritual Programs in Religious Education" hosted events at the Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel Falcon Circle on the Academy campus. The Academy website describes Falcon Circle as "The worship area [for]... an umbrella of traditions that includes Wicca, Paganism and Druidism."

The Air Force Academy documents were unearthed thanks to our intrepid investigators, who filed an October 8, 2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for:

Any and all records regarding, concerning or relating to "Earth-based" worship service events occurring at the [Air Force Academy] campus in the 2013/14 academic years, including but not limited to, programs, hand-outs, proposals, agreements, contracts, invoices, budget documents, and related materials.

The response included an invoice from a vendor called "Living Earth," indicating that in March 28, 2014, the Academy was billed $260 for "worship-supplies-fellowship" for activities described as a "Festival." According to a purchase request, the $260 to pay Living Earth was drawn from the Academy's Church Tithes and Offerings Fund under the accounting class "Wiccan."

Chapel Tithes and Offering Funds were used to pay for registration and meals for two cadets to attend the May 10-11, 2014, "Earth Centered Beltania festival." According to the Living Earth website, the Beltania Festival is "a retreat and festival for all who follow Earth-honoring religion or spiritual path." At the festival, attendees are encouraged to "dance with ecstasy around the maypole," "drum with the heartbeat of Mother Earth," and "conjure Springtime within nature and yourself."

The documents also contained an October 24, 2014, purchase request for $120 for the Academy to send four cadets to the "23rd Annual Denver Witches Ball." The ball was held at a masonic temple in Denver, and the four attendees were described in the purchase request as "Earth Centered/Pagan Cadets."

The Air Force Academy documents also included an October 22, 2014, email from the DFGL [Distinctive Faith Group Leader] at the Air Force Academy to an Academy official who apparently had asked for copies of any advertisements for earth-based worship services in order to fulfill the Judicial Watch FOIA request. In the email, the Distinctive Faith Group Leader strongly argued that he/she had "not used any kind of advertising" to promote the pagan/wiccan/voodoo ceremonies in which Academy cadets participated.

Despite the group leader's claim that the Earth-Centered Services "does NOT proselytize," the material from the Academy FOIA office included a promotional brochure from the Spiritual Programs in Religious Education group with which the group leader acknowledged he works. According to the Spiritual Programs in Religious Education brochure, the organization encourages festival participants to engage in "Earth Centered paths," including:

• Wicca

• Witchcraft

• Faery Magick

• Druidism

• Heathenism

• Native American traditions

• Voodoo

• African Orishas

• Goddess Spirituality

Compare and contrast these revelations with the Air Force Academy's hostile approach to traditional Christianity. In 2013, the Air Force Academy made "so help me God" optional to its cadet oath. Since 2014, the Air Force has allowed airmen to omit "so help me God" from enlistment oaths. Our friends at the Family Research Council have been keeping a record of incidents of hostility to traditional religion within the armed services: "Unfortunately, pressures to impose a secular, anti-religious culture on our nation's military services have intensified tremendously during the Obama Administration. This pressure exists across the armed services, but it has become extremely acute in the United States Air Force."

The Air Force Academy leadership is attacking traditional Christian beliefs, but will fund witchcraft and "faery magick"? These records show the misplaced priorities in the Air Force and why traditional Christians increasingly feel unwelcome in the Air Force Academy.

This is a deeply troubling situation and your JW will keep on top of it.

Until next week…
