http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/07/19/bachmann-flees-cnn-cameras-over-questions-about-anti-muslim-attacks/

Earlier on Wednesday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) had taken to the Senate floor to rip Bachmann and four other Republican lawmakers for their “specious and degrading attacks” on Abedin.

“The allegations about Huma Abedin and the report from which they are drawn are nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable citizen, a dedicated American and a loyal public servant,” the Arizona senator said. “These attacks have no logic, no basis and no merit. And they need to stop. They need to stop now.”

“When anyone — not least, a member of Congress — launches specious and degrading attacks against fellow Americans on the basis of nothing more than fear of who they are and ignorance of what they stand for, it defames the spirit of our nation and we all grow poorer because of it,” he added.

Progress indeed.

The Muslim Brotherhood is The enemy from within… That is a Fact!

Anyone connected to them should be checked out… and, if required, removed from the job.

One MUST be squeaky Clean when it comes to getting High Level of Clearances…
If they are NOT, they DO NOT get clearance.

We should NOT be gambling with Homeland Security risks or anything else in our government.

If McCain doesn’t like it, too bad!

Wher you been getting your information Joe? To hold the job she has, she was investigated back to lthe day she was born – AND – her parents! Bachmann belongs in the swamp where she slimed out of.

“investigation into potential Muslim Brotherhood infiltration into United States Government”
Are those at least tree-hugging socialist atheist Muslims?

I believe that the lack of evidence just proves that the conspiracy is working.

The real enemies of our nation are the fear mongers who will scream and yell that doom is at hand while happily signing over our rights in the name of security. I would gladly risk mine, my wife’s, and my daughter’s lives by reducing the cameras, invasive security procedures and homeland security rather then live in a nation that cowers in fear of what a few radical Muslims might do. Someone on here a couple days ago claimed that we’ve become a nation of pussies because the poor whine too much. In reality it is because we see a terrorist in every muslim that passes, we see criminals in the blacks and hispanics on the street, and live in fear that someone might take all our stuff. The truth is we should be frightened of the people in DC who seek to polarize the nation while finding distractions like this to keep us from seeing what else they might really be up to. Quit worrying about some fictional takeover of our nation, besides, can they really do any worse then the idiots we currently have driving this nation into the ground.

If something is known to be our enemy and they have plainly come out and said so, it’s pretty clear that they ARE Enemies and should be feared and dealt with accordingly.

During WW II, the Japanese were our enemy…
Therefore, all Japanese in our country were rounded up and placed in special camps… This was done as a Security Measure…

We should be handling The Muslim Brotherhood the same way… for the SAME reasons.

And it’s NOT just ‘Part of it’ it’s ALL of it… Worldwide…

Have you seen what happened in Egypt… A member of TMB becomes the new president of Egypt…
... and promptly gives a speech about their NEW Constitution, their Goal, etc.??

We should be handling our enemies as “Enemies”... and not pussy footing around them trying not to offend them!!

preach it brother. glad someone said it. the point of terrorism is not to kill people it is to terrorize them to the point where they are willing to give up their rights to defend against an imaginary enemy. i think I read that you are more likely, even today, to get hit by a meteorite than to be the victim of a terrorist attack. Maybe everyone should give up their rights to defend against the “meteorite threat.” Before anyone can say it, I have a cousin who was at the world trade center on Sept. 11. (he wasn’t hurt) So i don’t say these things lightly.

@Paul: the point of terrorism is not to kill people it is to terrorize them

that is true – if you go by the dictionary.

alas, terrorists do not really care much about our dictionaries – they do not consider themselves ‘terrorists’ nor do they aim to make us fear them… in their eyes they are ‘freedom fighters’ and their goal is not so much to ‘spread fear’ but more to eradicate those who oppose them and take control…

these are people with a completely different mindset than yours and mine.

I’m sorry, but terrorists don’t care how many people they kill. They just want to create fear and chaos. If they make every person in a supposedly freedom loving nation give up some freedom for security theater, they have succeeded.

Rick – Joe himself brought it up as if this is the right way to do things:
During WW II, the Japanese were our enemy…
Therefore, all Japanese in our country were rounded up and placed in special camps… This was done as a Security Measure…

Victor – yup, we all gotta watch out for those atheist Muslims, they are even worse than those atheist Christians, and we all know how bad they are. But I don’t think you should go around disparaging tree huggers. Ain’t you got no love for trees? There ain’t gonna be no woodworking for long without no trees.

But getting back to the thread topic – I’m more than a little skeptical that the Muslim Brotherhood is going to be more effective at infiltrating our government than say, Russia or Israel. McCain certainly stepped up and showed what he thinks it means to be an American. Even Boehmer stepped up.

Greg, et al, You can say that NOW… So can I… BUT, back then, it was different…
We had just been gruesomely attacked at Pearl Harbor, we were in a SOLID WAR against Japan.

“Blood is thicker than water” was probably the thinking that our government took and therefore, took the action they took.

Right NOW we really are at WAR with The Muslim Brotherhood & all other radical groups (whether our Government knows it or not)!

We should be taking EVERY PRECAUTION to be sure we are protected and that there are NOT enemies within the ranks of our Government.

It appears very obvious to me that they ARE present.

Things can change… a person (& family) can be squeaky clean today… and go rotten tomorrow… we should never let our guard down.

... and, if there is the slightest chance we have a threat, we should investigate to get it cleared up…

Really? I mean really? People were placed into internment camps based on their race, and you see this as a positive. I thought throughout my time in the Marine Corps that we were trying to protect this country to falling victim to our enemies, but it seems some in our country want to imitate them.

I will only point out chipmunk that both Germans and Italians were interred on Elise Island during WW2 not that it creates any form of justification for what happened on a far greater scale to the Japanese, got it from watching histories mysteries on PBS.
The minute we start eliminating the rights of others on suspicion of what they might do and couch it under the heading of war necessity it becomes possible to start eliminating everyone’s rights; you know, for the good of the state as it opposes the oppressors that would see to the downfall of our glorious freedom loving nation. Whenever rhetoric starts flying under the flag of war and the necessity of curbing freedoms to seek out security you should start looking to what they are doing to your freedoms and everyone else’s . I really have no concern for the muslim brotherhood infiltrating the government, seems like the red scare or the stuff of WW2 superman comics, any who try will be noticed. This isn’t Egypt where it is possible for a bunch of conservative practitioners to hide among the less conservative. In many ways it’s actually some of the supposed Christians who would use our government to push their own warped and twisted agenda that are the equivalent. I’d suggest sending Bachmann after them but I fear she’s one of them.

It seems to me that The Muslim Brotherhood IS the prime organization that is behind, all or in part, of the major terrorist attacks against us & others around the world. All major terrorists are linked to The Muslim Brotherhood.

I have NOT heard anything GOOD about them! If there are Muslims in that organization that do not believe in their objectives, they are NOT making it known to the rest of the world!

Morsi during Elections Campaign: Jihad Is Our Path, Death for the Sake of Allah Is Our Aspiration

What part of “Jihad is Our Path” do you not understand? Their Jihad is killing and wiping all infidels from the face of the earth. In case you didn’t know WE, here in the USA, are classified as Infidels.
What do you NOT understand about that? In listening & watching him speak, do you really think he is a friendly Muslim?

I think it’s very safe to say “If anyone has ties to The Muslim Brotherhood, they should be further investigated and positively not ever hold a Security Clearance in our Government”.
We DO NOT have to take ANY chances in this matter… It is a matter of our National Security, the most important part of our Nation.

Joe,
While I am not going into my thoughts on the Muslim brotherhood, primarily because I am not read into them enough to have an educated opinion. Your “simple question, simple answer. yes or no” garbage is just that, garbage. If you are truly looking for a reasoned discussion you have to get past the talk radio, “answer my question” crap. Those kind of questions can not be answered with a simple yes or no answer.

Have you changed your racist views thinking we should throw all middle easterners into a concentration camp Joe. Simple question, so don’t answer with anything other than yes or no.

I don’t think thats what you believe Joe, just trying that even something as simple as that requires more than just a yes or no.

The Newage Neanderthal, I answered the internment question.

If you do not know anything about The Muslim Brotherhood, you should do a little study… They have been in the news quite a bit… Usually, a terrorist has been caught & having Ties to them… a very common occurrence

Then & only then should you attempt to answer the simple question.

Before the subject of this thread can have any real Meaning, people should know that The Muslim Brotherhood is at war with Infidels Worldwide, which includes the United States of America, and they are working from “within”;ergo, getting into our Federal, City, & State Governments. It is very obvious that they are succeeding… even our own President is helping them do it (inviting the new president of Egypt to the White House as one recent example!).

At this point, I don’t see how our President is even qualified for any Security Clearance of any degree!

I am not suggesting that we gather them up & put them into camps…

I AM suggesting that members in our Governments should be investigated if they have ANY ties with The Muslim Brotherhood and stop them before they stop us!

That is all M. Bachmann is trying to get done… That is all… and I am in favor of her actions!

If anyone who knows what is going on in the world in regard to The Muslim Brotherhood, they will know what their goal / path is. If one does not know, READ & STUDY it! The destiny of our country depends on it.

-Me

If you do not know anything about The Muslim Brotherhood, you should do a little study… They have been in the news quite a bit…
-Joe

Joe, I didn’t say that I knew nothing of of them. I am not going into why buy I am sure I know more about them Shawn Hanity, Rush, or most of the other “news” guys. And would be willing to bet a lot more about them than you do. What I said was, I have been read in enough. The idiosyncratisies of an organization such as the Muslim Brotherhood and their relation to the US government goes well beyond what the news tells you. If your idea of study has to do with listening to a few American news outlets you are not close to having enough information to forming an informed opinion. If you are reading multiple news organizations globally, including pro Muslim Brotherhood outfits in Egypt, reading there own documentation, and have done a rather through background study on the affiliated units, then you can come close.

It is not nearly as cut and try as when Al Qaeda attacked us, and as simple as that was, a lot of people still thought it was the Taliban, or that the two were one in the same.

Well, it’s pretty obvious about how some of you feel about Christians. Why don’t you go ahead and lock all of us up? Maybe you could even force us to wear a cross on our shoulder in the form of a shoulder patch so when you saw us walking toward you on the sidewalk you could simply avoid us by crossing over to the other side.

Locking up Americans of Japanese decent during WWII was a despicable and unconstitutional act. If they locked them up then why not lock up all the Americans who were descended from the German people and the Italian people as well. Not that that would make it any less despicable.

You simply cannot stereotype whole groups of people. It is simply a hateful thing to do.

Could it possibly be that they are a member of that “association”?

I would think that there is a darn good chance that they ARE a member of that association.

Well, first, that is simply not true. Especially for background information to give your self a better framework for interpreting the data. Of the links you posted none of them even went to news outlets, so how can you say that they are the only way. You have to links two a blog, and one that links to you tube posted documentaries.

And of the news outlets, which one are you getting your info from? How many do you use? Do you go beyond Fox and talk radio? If so, how much? CNN? BBC? Spiegel? Xinhua? How much reading do you do from Al Jezeera?

It looks pretty damn blank to me from here. I will admit that I have an ongoing war with machinery, technology, and automation of all sorts, but I tend to cope with it quite well in spite of it all. I am over the engineering and maintenance in our plant but I freely admit that I’m just a regular old shade tree mechanic when it comes right down to it. One of my favorite tools is the common ordinary hammer. I simply love hammers and I probably have a pretty good collection of them – from the tiniest and lightest all the way up to a 15lb sledge hammer. Unfortunately some idiot broke the handle off of it and I haven’t had time to put another handle on it. So, having said that, I guess I’m just a plain ordinary 5 pounder at best, right now. I don’t know when I’ll get around to fixn’ it – probably never the way things are goin’. Hammers can do wonders with machinery and other such things. I’m sorry that I missed it – whatever it was.

Actually, concerning the 15lb sledge hammer head, I have long since thought that it would make a Jim Dandy bench anvil. I think that that is what I will do with it. Thanks for helping me come up with the determination to go forward with this plan for it, Chipmunk. I shall bring it home tomorrow and put it on my workbench. It’s sharp on one end and flat on the other. It’s flat on all four sides. The handle hole will be sort of like a hardy hole. I can use that to drill holes with. If the local dam should break and I’m forced to lash some planks of wood together into a raft to escape the onslaught of the water I can also use it as a boat anker. Lumberjocks has never ceased to amaze me. Help comes from all directions in a time of need – or even if you don’t need it. I need it. I need a bench anvil. Thanks.

Chipmunk, what are you trying to do?
.. do you have a Link to a video you’re trying to post?

If so, just paste the link into your post… won’t be fancy, but it will work…

Or you can:
1. Type the Description of the Link.
2. Select the description (mouse down at start… move to end… and mouse UP)
3. Click the “Chain Link” ICON… to get to the point of wanting the url link.
4. Paste your Link into it.
5. Click OK.
& post it!

If that’s not what you’re trying to do, I have no idea… I cannot read your mind… :)

Who said I took that comedy routine seriously?

The objective is to investigate in case there are problems present or not…
... that includes giving someone a Security Clearance that should NOT get one… (according to the rules).

Why is everyone making a big deal out of it?

If there is smoke, there COULD be fire… a fire to be put out!

AND, HEY! Who was asking for HELP? To get the Link posted, etc. I try to help you… and for what?! Crap!
... You’re NOT welcome!

Chipmunk...

DUH?

Get ready to say goodbye Chipmunk… you have now crossed the LINE!

... for everybody’s information, I have just Blocked Chipmunk!

Reason:

Hey Joe I did not ask for help from you to get a link posted. You seem to have a very difficult time following the conversation. It occurs to me that you are a grumpy old man…..instead of “Have Fun” your signature should be “Hey you kids, get off my grass”. (or I’ll send you to an internment camp)
