They shouldn’t have even been here. Michael Cutler, a 30 year veteran of the Immigration and Naturalization Service explains the broken immigration system that failed to scrutinize the Boston Terror Attack suspects’ student visas and citizenship applications. Michael Cutler will be a featured speaker at ACT! for America’s National Conference & Legislative Briefing held June 19-21 in Washington DC.
Middle East analyst Walid Phares sends along the translation of an Arabic aricle in el Watan, in which Egyptian scholar Ahmad Abed Rabbo has some provocative comments:
An el Watan article reported that US ambassador to Egypt Ann Paterson is meeting all political parties in Egypt to convince them to accept the coming legislative elections rushed by the Muslim Brotherhood. Ahmad Abed Rabbo, an Egyptian scholar said the US wants the Brotherhood to win the coming elections. They want to consolidate the Ikhwan’s rule
ومن جانبه، اعتبر أستاذ العلوم السياسية الدكتور أحمد عبدربه، أن اللقاءات التي تجريها السفيرة الأمريكية نوعا من جمع المعلومات من ناحية ومن ناحية أخرى فهم كافة الأطراف السياسية. وأضاف أنه من صالح الولايات المتحدة إجراء الانتخابات البرلمانية وعدم المقاطعة لأنها تراهن على دعم نظام الإخوان لأخرة قطرة ونجاحه في العملية الديمقراطية.
An observer in Washington DC said “the Obama Administration is pressuring the seculars in Egypt to accept the early elections as devised by Morsi, so that the Brotherhood would win them. The Administration is now meddling in Egyptian politics on the side of the Islamists, using its political influence, its foriegn aid and the fact that there is no one in Washington opposing the Administration in its pro-Ikhwan stance, so far.”
The Obama administration’s view of the Middle East can certainly be considered pro-Muslim Brotherhood– and it hasn’t been the first time Egyptians themselves have noticed. Maybe the New York Times will, once again, blame Frank Gaffney for anti-Obama sentiment by Copts and moderate Muslims in Egypt.
Barry Rubin this week wrote the must-read piece on how their view of the region (and of potential ‘moderation’ of Islamist forces more generally) couldn’t be more disastrously wrong. He points out that, in order to arrive at the conclusion that Islamist groups will moderate once they’ve taken hold of the levers of power, the administration– from the president to highly influential advisers like John Brennan– have had to ignore the most crucial facts about these groups:
Here is an important principle in studying the politics of this contemporary era: violence (including terrorism) is not the main measure of radicalism. Instead, the way to judge the extremism of a group is the organization’s ideology, goals, and seriousness in seeking total victory. Strategic and tactical flexibility should be taken into account, but do not mitigate the threat posed by the objective toward which any political force is striving.
Some might remember a letter sent by Cliff Kincaid of America’s Survival to the new House Homeland Security Committee chairman, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), demanding an investigation into the sale of CURRENT TV to Al-Jazeera by Al Gore and his partners. Walid was also a signatory to that letter. McCaul failed to respond to the letter prior to the Investigate Al Jazeera Now Press Conference, held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on February 5th.

*** LEGISLATIVE ACTION ALERT!!! ***
SUPPORT SPECIAL CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE TO INVESTIGATE BENGHAZI ATTACK!
Recently, Representative Frank Wolf (VA) introduced H. Res. 824, legislation that creates a special Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives to conduct a thorough investigation into the terrorist attack in Benghazi. As you will recall, this heinous act against our nation resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.
Representative Wolf believes—and we wholeheartedly agree—that the families of the victims, as well as the American people, deserve to know what transpired last September 11th in Libya. It has been over 80 days since the attack and the American people still have not been provided answers to serious questions. This is unacceptable.
It is critical that this special Committee be convened when the 113th Congress commences in January and that will only happen if the American people register their support NOW.
The more cosponsors Representative Wolf’s legislation receives, the more it will be clear to the members of the House of Representatives—and in particular the leadership there—that the American people are demanding answers regarding the Benghazi attack.
Will you devote just a minute of your time today to ask your U.S. Representative to cosponsor Rep. Wolf’s bill? It only takes a moment, but when joined with thousands of others, it makes quite a roar—and it gets results.
ACT! for America’s grassroots are getting a solid reputation on Capitol Hill for being folks who “get the job done.” As but one example, recently we asked our members to call their legislators and ask that they sign an important letter that was being circulated on the Hill. Within 48 hours of our calls, the number of legislators who signed the letter went from 25 to 97. A Hill staffer even contacted Lisa Piraneo, our Director of Government Relations, to let us know that the phones were ringing off the hook. Your actions are WORKING.
If you’d like to lend your voice to today’s important cause, please follow these easy steps:
** IMPORTANT ACTION ITEM **
Today, please call YOUR member of the U.S. House of Representatives and ask him/her to sign on to H. Res. 824, Representative Frank Wolf’s legislation creating a special Committee to investigate the Benghazi attack. Further, please circulate this Action Alert to everyone you know and post it on your social media sites!
NOTE: If you need help locating your elected official, visit our Contact Congress page by clicking HERE. Type in your zip code where indicated to locate your U.S. legislators. Click on your Representative and you can then see his/her contact information, including the phone number of the Washington, DC office.
If you know the name of your U.S. Representative, you also can call the Congressional Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask to be put through to that particular office.
Please make your call NOW! Politely let your Representative know about H. Res. 824, Rep. Wolf’s bill, and ask that he/she sign on as a cosponsor. (Be clear that you are a constituent!)
Thank you for all that you do. Together, we are making a difference.
REMEMBER, YOUR VOICE COUNTS! IF EACH OF US DOES JUST A LITTLE, TOGETHER WE CAN ACCOMPLISH A LOT!

Hundreds of Egyptian Americans protested in front of the White House and marched through the streets of Washington, D.C. Saturday, urging President Obama to stand against newly elected Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi. The protest came as Morsi sought to ease tensions in Egypt by removing part of the decree that awarded him near-absolute control.
After a contentious election process, many in Egypt were suspicious that Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood sought to be the dominant political power. Morsi soon took steps to solidify that political dominance. In November, he caused a mass uprising by annulling several constitutional amendments that restricted his power – including an amendment that provided judicial oversight of his actions.
Although Morsi has replaced his initial decree with a modified version, his initial power grab has left many Egyptians uneasy.
“Morsi’s declaration on 22 November, as well as the draft constitution planned to be voted on in a referendum are an absolute shame to anything that we can even call a democracy,” said Miriam Aziz, an international student from Egypt attending American University. Aziz was one of hundreds who protested outside the White House.
“It is by all means a populist tyranny and a dictatorship,” Aziz said of Morsi’s administration. “We are here to raise our voices and echo the voices of our brothers and sisters and family and friends in Egypt protesting this.”
Aside from a Dec. 6 call to Morsi, President Obama has largely been silent on the uprising in Egypt. During the call, Obama urged all political leaders in Egypt to denounce violence. He also urged an open dialogue between Morsi and his opposition, but stressed that the dialogue should occur without preconditions.
Protesters in front of the White House urged President Obama to do more.

Historic slogans in Washington DC. Egyptian Americans shouting:
“MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD ARE FASCISTS”…
Revolutionary signs displayed during the courageous Egyptian American demonstration that took place Saturday from in front of the White …
In Cairo, Morsi scribbles his decrees and in Washington DC, Obama scribbles his. There is an ocean between the two men, but there is a good deal that they have in common. Both are ideologues who piggybacked on public outrage over the national impact of international economic declines to climb to power and pursue their true agendas.
Without worries about the price of bread, the odds are good that Mubarak would be sitting in his old place and Morsi would be looking over the latest economic reports from the Brotherhood’s business networks and front groups. And without a sharp decline in American living standards, Mubarak would be receiving phone calls from President McCain urging him to democratize Egypt, while Obama would be rallying the troops at the latest SEIU event for taking back Congress.
Times of crisis are political hunting grounds for extremist groups whose ideologies would otherwise be unpalatable. Angry people are more willing to accept the previously unacceptable to shake up the system and punish those that they blame for their economic situation. They are in the long run, only punishing themselves, but the long run rarely wins elections. The short run however is the all-time ballot box winner.
But the problem with running on the old Bolshy platform of “Land, Bread and Peace” is that the people eventually expect you to deliver at least two of three. And ideologues are not interested in empowering people. They will hand out subsidized freebies to their supporters to win elections, but they won’t empower them economically and peace is never on the table with folks who believe utopia is just a hundred years of war away.
There is a point midway between the cheering for hope and change, and the complete consolidation of power in the hands of a tyrannical system when the tyrant is vulnerable. That window is the one that opens when the people begin realizing that there is no land, bread or peace on the horizon. Their eyes haven’t opened, but their patience has run out.
Morsi has tried to cut the duration of the window as narrowly as possibly by moving quickly to consolidate his power, but that brought on a second crisis and a wave of popular protests. Triggering those protests prematurely may have been his plan, but that plan may have also backfired. The only way to tell will be retroactively.
Obama’s ObamaCare power grab was generally held to be premature, but even though the majority continues to oppose it, the man behind the program survived an election thanks to a hurricane and plenty of voter fraud. Morsi may similarly be able to survive his own power grab. An Islamist is, if nothing else, absolutely immune from the sort of human emotions that animate normal leaders.
The advantage of being an ideologue is that you simply do not care what infidels think and anyone who is not a member of your mental club is an infidel. Transnationalists, whether of the leftist or Islamist flavor, are men who live without a country. Their country is an imaginary global utopia, the infinite Reich of dreams, the Caliphate of their conspiracies and the World Revolution that can never be.

This afternoon, a federal judge for the District of Columbia granted the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC)’s request on behalf of its clients for an injunction to halt the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA)’s censorship of a pro-Israel/anti-jihad bus advertisement. The judge ordered the “Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority [to] display Plaintiffs’ advertisement no later than 5 p.m. on October 8, 2012.” The planned advertisement states, “In Any War Between the Civilized Man and the Savage, Support the Civilized Man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad.”
United States District Court Judge Rosemary M. Collyer granted the request after AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel Robert Muise presented a compelling case in which he argued that the WMATA’s refusal to run the advertisement out of a vague and speculative fear of Muslim mob violence violates AFLC’s clients’ First Amendment right to freedom of speech. The request is part of a lawsuit filed by AFLC on behalf of the bus advertisement’s sponsors, the Freedom Defense Initiative (FDI), Pamela Geller, and Robert Spencer.
Muise commented, “Today, Judge Collyer affirmed that our fundamental right to freedom of speech cannot be suppressed by mob rule. This is not only a victory for our clients, but it is a clear victory for all freedom-loving Americans.”
On September 18, 2012, the WMATA decided to delay running a pro-Israel/anti-jihad advertisement on its Metro system until some “future date” due to alleged concerns about “the situations happening around the world,” “world events,” and the “security and safety” of its passengers. The WMATA’s decision was based in response to the ongoing violence in Egypt, Libya, and elsewhere in an alleged protest of free speech in the United States that is critical of Islam. As a result of the WMATA’s censorship, AFLC filed a federal civil rights lawsuit on behalf of the advertisement’s sponsors, which challenges the WMATA’s unconstitutional restriction on FDI’s right to engage in protected speech in a public forum.
AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi commented: “As Judge Collyer wisely ruled, the WMATA clearly violated the Constitution. In recent weeks, sharia-adherent Muslims – foreign and domestic – have called for a ban on all speech that is critical of Islam. Unfortunately, the WMATA was quick to comply. But, our clients’ speech is protected under the First Amendment, and any efforts by Islamists and acquiescing government agencies to subvert our most fundamental freedoms must be resisted with the full force of the Constitution.”

“I will stand with the Muslim should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” From, Audacity of Hope by Barrack Hussein Obama
Barack Obama flew 7000 miles at the cost of $170,000.00 per flight hour under the cloak of secrecy, surprise and darkness for a formal signing of a ten year Karzai agreement between the United States and Afghanistan. The contents of this agreement have not been released or approved as a treaty by the White House or the State Department; however it does allegedly stop drone strikes and demands the Taliban’s promise of peace.
At the Baghram Air Base the stage was set and the curtain rose at 4:30 a.m. with no troops or press pool invited to the vaudeville act where the Commander in Chief announced the final war stages of the war strategy and the exit plan in Afghanistan to the entire globe, something no other Commander in Chief or theater General has ever previously broadcasted in American history. Within minutes of the execution of this financial and military contract, complete with signatures hitting the airwaves, Kabul was struck by an exchange of gun-fire, suicide bombers and car bombs in retaliation for the coalition partnership deal. The early ‘sitrep’ told us there were 2 dead and 16 wounded, when an updated ‘sitrep’ revealed deeper collateral damage of our own U.S. forces of 1 EOD, 3 Special Forces were killed in action and 1 SEAL was wounded were added to the casualty and wounded list.
Barack Obama on a return flight to the United States, never looked back at the destruction in his wake from the boasting political event to laud his self proclaimed achievement where the ‘War on Terror’ is over dreamed-up only by his administration handlers as Osama bin Ladin was the catalystic springboard to Obama’s spouting success. Bin Ladin’s death was the crowning achievement, aired in political ads, campaign speeches and press releases. Yet, what is the next ‘forward’ step to mounting a larger goal of peace for ten years ahead and who or what stands to receive the final trophy? The supreme endgame has become clear and defined; the trophy is flying the flag of Islam over the White House. Here at home, there is a palpable and obscure movement where red has replaced green. Communism is no longer the insurgent, now it is the green menace, known as Islam. In the United States, emulating the Cold War anti-American objective, green now represents a flood of Sharia complaint faithful into placeholder positions of power provided by Barack Obama as formally announced in the Cairo speech. Before the first Cold War, a man named Martin Dies rang the claxon on communism’s infiltration into the Unites States before Joseph McCarthy later championed the same call during the 1940’s-1950’s. The Truman administration then made a fateful decision to turn off the sound, while today the same mission is underway, so increase the volume to hear this alert. Today, America has no Dies/McCarthy except those few who have uncovered the White House playbook and vetted evidence while outside the landscape of the governmental positions with few exceptions. The trophy is America, where in the recent decade, radical Muslims and Islamists have moved to American shores coming from a Russian support push, approved by the more hidden appeasement of Obama through the Hillary Clinton ‘reset’ button when Putin returned to power. In the daylight of our civilian population and the infiltration of the lobby streets of Washington DC along with at least seven cabinet departments of the Federal government, Sharia, Zakat and Taqiyya are there for all to see and trace with the full scale likeness that harkens back a handful of decades.
The names listed below under the red and green columns while not exhaustive, are those who have gained deep and viable positions within government both decades ago, under red and in very recent years, under green. Either in present day they are part of lobby groups with open access to high level government officials or are in fact on the Federal payroll in such departments as Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the State Department, the main Justice Department or more central at the White House itself. Those listed on the red side are from the Communist infusion having all the same like roles within government during World War ll and later the Cold War. The green side contains names you must learn to know today.
[Go to the Source for the list of names. I could not get the columns to show properly here]
Hillary and William Clinton The surrender of America to her enemies by the Obama administration is real and has been launched, and is gaining increasing speed. This new and fresh cultural order where Islamists and their coalition forces are fighting for and winning the resources and real estate and hidden government mandates established in secret, a single governmental system on an epic scale. Most often, their method is based upon political correctness and under the guise of human rights, religious protection and outreach.
The Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR and INSA to name a few have deep ties to al Qaeda, al Shabaab, the Taliban and Dar Ululoom, now better known as the Haqqani Network. To provide an abbreviated summary of Haqqani please consider the fact that Mullah Omar is the top leader for this thirty year old terror network established by Pakistan’s ISI, the intelligence division in country and calls on the relationship with Lashker e Jhangvi as, the Mubai Raiders and the very group that kidnapped Daniel Pearl and killed him on video for the world to witness. They have been formally extended an open pathway to the United States by Barack Obama and his benefactors including Vladimir Putin and George Soros with legitimacy, sovereignty and finally diplomatic status. America has been at war with al Qaeda since before 9-11 and while the focus was on al Qaeda in particular theaters of operation, they have moved on to Algeria and North Africa expanding further beyond the static Middle East. It is certain that key al Qaeda leaders have been killed by CIA operated drone strikes yet a constant re-branding of networks and ties continue. The Obama administration has been negotiating directly with the Taliban for more than two years to force a peace agreement that includes the transfer of five key Taliban leaders from Guantanamo to Qatar. To this date, it is not confirmed whether this move has taken place under a cloak and dagger transfer. Yet today, the Obama administration has been secretly releasing Taliban tribal leaders from prisons in Afghanistan. The Taliban is the main focus of the Obama administration for peace agreements while the Taliban network extends from Afghanistan into Pakistan. Abdul Salam Zaeef, an Pakistani Ambassador to the Taliban is also a member. Tehrik e Taliban’s leader, Baitullah Mahsad claimed responsibility for killing the Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto changing the face of the leadership of Pakistan to that of an adversary.
It should be noted that there are in fact two laws if not more that apply to stop this sedition if not treason by countless government officials in addition to the Oath they swear to upon taking a government job. The laws include the Hatch Act and the McCarren Walter Act and we can include the Patriot Act to the equation. Under Barack Obama with his circle of large like-minded supporters, a system is being created to orphan the citizenry of America as we are caught up in this snare of a green mission under an ideology in complete opposition to our Constitution. The McCarren Walter Act of 1952 has been amended several times, where is has been watered down for the sake of political correctness, however in its original form, President Truman vetoed the law, but it prevailed due to majority votes in the House and Senate. This law was and is designed to manage immigration, deportation and the termination of employment as a result of the fallout in the 1940’s-50’s over the communist invasion in key government roles where subversive activities against the United States were tracked and proven. The Hatch Act forbids government employees from engaging in political actions yet the Muslim Brotherhood has employed at least three White House employees that are members of the Muslim Brotherhood where they are in fact engaging in political Muslim ideology and drafting mandates supporting the cause. What is more, appeasement entitlement programs and business grants as well as functional doctrine within the military, the Department of Justice and even Education have been completely altered and in many cases re-drafted that complies with the laws of the Hadith and Islam. The Hatch Act and the McCarren Walter Act are laws have been both selectively applied and in many cases waived completely by several government cabinets including the State Department. Islam is a government where a God is added to neutralize the debate and it has been extremely effective out of fear of retribution.
Public school systems in the United States have altered meals served, altered the curriculum and even the hours for football practice to the middle of the night for the sake of one Muslim student. Domestic court systems have applied Sharia law in at least 27 cases rather than Constitutional law. Under the appeasement to Islam, Barack Obama has replaced the military chaplain program at the Pentagon with a more Islamic objective. Muslim Brotherhood liaisons have been created at all levels of our government where they have enjoyed full compliance of their goals that include removing Muslim training materials from the FBI and DHS lesson plans. Iftar dinners have been hosted by military Generals as well as by Tim Geithner at the Treasury Department. Only recently has the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation stopped all interaction with national fusion centers where more local law enforcement has been taken out of the intelligence infrastructure, ceasing all state terror database use, investigation and eventual arrests. States such as Minnesota, Maine and Tennessee have become the target bases for green-lighted green card refugees from areas across the globe where in one particular sector, the Somalis take on the larger numbers of displaced travelers. It should be noted that there are countless pockets of real estate in America now that are essentially ‘no-go’ zones where Islam has been provided their own sovereignty, where foreign law and culture are applied rather than assimilation into our country and our values. Security clearances by the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department have been outsourced where a quota is forced to for acceptance into America without comprehensive investigations are completed.
The Soviets aligned with radical Arabs and Muslims decades ago to create the Red agenda, while they are doing the same today. Russia has subsidized Muslim factions for the sake of land sales and use in the Northern Caucus for the acquisition of oil and natural gas infrastructures. Outwardly, Russia is in opposition to the terror factions, however, more recently we witness Russia aligning completely with Syria, North African networks and al Qaeda and even FARC for the sake of resources.
What is upon America is the Russian Muslim Brotherhood Shariah mafia agenda with Barack Obama taking the lead as the grand marshal to complete the mission and the trophy, the flag of Islam is soon to fly over the White House. It can no longer be denied that the entire faction of Obama handlers inside government or outside government have a single subversive objective for the sake of radical Islam.
