Hump Day Report: Do You Want To Know A Secret?
ALOHA, ALL!! You think your leaders are looking out for the security of this country? If so, you must be living on the moon. Monday, I had a glimmer of respect for Senator Diane Feinstein. It seemed as if she was taking her role as Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee seriously and was truly interested in getting to the bottom of the recent security leaks. Feinstein actually said that someone in Obama’s White House was leaking information: Someone From The White House Is Leaking National Security Secrets That Coincidentally Make Obama Look Good Tuesday, Feinstein didn’t show up for several meetings that she was scheduled to attend and instead issued a written statement: “I stated that I did not believe the president leaked classified information,” Feinstein said in the statement on Tuesday. “I shouldn’t have speculated beyond that, because the fact of the matter is I don’t know the source of the leaks.” Silly me for thinking for one second that a political hack and insider like Feinstein would actually do the right thing. So much for doing what’s right – Barry’s minions must have given her an offer she couldn’t refuse and she took it.
UPDATE: Then there’s this – CIA: Did You Mean These Documents? “The Department of Justice had to file a motion admitting that the CIA had found numerous documents that should have been released in a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch about White House interaction with filmmakers producing a movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden…This relates directly to the issue around which Feinstein danced yesterday, which is the intentional leaking of national-security information to burnish the reputation of Barack Obama.” Apparently the documents were “overlooked.” A big, 4-5″ thick pile of documents.
I’m also peeved at some Republicans. You may have heard about the flack Michele Bachmann received for warning about people in the administration with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Congresswoman Bachmann has called out Keith Ellison as well as Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff for Hillary Clinton (Ms. Abedin is also married to disgraced former NY congressman Anthony Weiner.) Ellison is trying to hide his ties to CAIR and Muslim Brotherhood front groups, but the record speaks for itself: Keith Ellison Re-Writes History on His CAIR and Muslim Brotherhood Ties As for Huma Abedin, she does have immediate family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood: Huma Abedin and the Muslim Brotherhood – Closely Connected and National Security, The Muslim Brotherhood, and Clinton’s Top Aide and Yes, Who Huma Is Matters – A Lot ”As 1993 World Trade Center bombing prosecutor Andrew McCarthy notes in National Review, “The ties of Ms. Abedin’s father, mother, and brother to the Muslim Brotherhood are both specific and substantiated.” Let’s look at some of Michele Bachmann’s (unanswered) concerns, posted at Michele Bachmann Smells Something Foul:
- Why did the State Department not only allow a member of an Egyptian terrorist group a visa to enter the country (against the law) but then allowed that individual to meet with national security officials at the White House?
- Why does the State Department continue to interact regularly with known Muslim Brotherhood “front” groups?
- Why has the Obama administration, according to the White House Director for Community Partnerships, had hundreds of meetings with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and actively worked to conceal these meetings? As background, in 2008 the Holy Land Foundation was found guilty of funding Islamic terrorist organizations. Named as “unindicted co-conspirators” in the trial were CAIR and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Both organizations are tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.
- How exactly did Ms. Abedin avoid security clearance disqualification given that there is a documented connection between her father, mother and brother and the Muslim Brotherhood?
So John McCain, John Boehner, Ed Rollins and the rest of you in the GOP, stop criticizing Bachmann! She has more cojones than all of you combined. And Barry keeps bowing to China, compromising our security: Administration Approves Controversial Export License Allowing Sensitive Space Technology Transfer To China ”Regarding space technology transfer, the report said: “Inadvertent or deliberate transfer of space-related expertise poses the most significant potential harm to U.S. national interests.”
In Other News:
Rapper Ice-T Defends Gun Rights “It’s legal in the United States,” the rapper said. “The right to bear arms is because that’s the last form of defense against tyranny. Not to hunt. It’s to protect yourself from the police.” Good video. Ice-T doesn’t budge! Also excellent….this response from Aurora victim Jessica Ghawi’s brother, Jordan. He was being interviewed by an MSNBC flack trying desperately to get him to support gun control. BRILLIANT!
Wisconsin Democrat Defects, Leaving State Senate Control In Doubt ”Moderate Democratic Senator Tim Cullen declared Tuesday he will no longer caucus with Democrats, possibly taking the Senate back to dead even again, even as Democrats are moving into new offices.” LOL!!
Obama Will Visit Israel In Second Term Ha , Ha, Ha!!!!! This is such pandering it’s laughable. Reminds me of this Seinfeld episode: ”We didn’t bet if you wanted to do it, we bet if it would be done.”
Final Thought: ”I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.” General Douglas MacArthur
