The Betrayal Papers Part III: The Extensive Muslim Brotherhood Network in America, from Common Core, to Amnesty, to purging the U.S. Military of Christians
What do Common Core, “comprehensive” immigration reform, and IRS targeting of conservatives groups have in common? They are just a few examples of Muslim Brotherhood-connected policy initiatives that are affecting the lives of Americans every day. Under Obama, many new domestic policies, as well as many scandals, can be traced back to, in varying degrees, the Muslim Brotherhood.
To understand why America no longer feels like America – why it seems that the government has its favorites and while others are targeted and even persecuted – it is important to understand two strong influences on the Muslim Brotherhood. The first is historical: the Nazi Party of Hitler’s Germany. The second is more contemporary: the strategy developed by Al Qaeda’s strategic mastermind, Abu Musab al-Suri.
“The Vampire Economy” and Economic Repression
In 1939, German economist Guenter Reimann published a study of the German economy under Hitler. The Vampire Economy described a corrupt backwards economy that was not based on economic logic, much less profit seeking, but instead on the politics of Adolf Hitler.
Like Communism, Nazism was a form of socialism. (The term Nazi is a contraction of the German word Nationalsozialismus or National Socialism.) Unlike Soviet Communism, which at least theoretically, depended on shared ownership of capital to direct the economy, Nazi Germany nominally kept ownership of shops, farms, and factories in private hands.[i] Yet the outcome was basically the same in both Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany: total control over the economy by the Leader and political party.
In Germany, the pseudo-legal rationale used by the Nazis was regulation, which was subject to change on a whim. If a citizen broke any regulation in any degree, he/she was punished– with fines, political persecution, imprisonment, and eventually sent to a concentration camp.
Pervasive corruption in the Third Reich ensured that the rules were unequally applied depending on one’s loyalty to the Nazis. Specifically, in such an economy, there were party members in good standing, and there were dissidents. Party members could break rules with impunity, while dissidents faced public character assassinations and blacklisting.
This calls to mind Obamacare’s implementation. Certain companies, approximately 1,200 in fact, received waivers from the law. While other businesses were forced to provide health coverage for abortions against the will and conscience of the business owners (though the Supreme Court later overruled this regulation). Similarly, fines and prosecutions have been unequally levied on banks that violate a myriad of complex and overlapping regulations. Not to mention those in government and their staff who received exemptions from being required to purchase Obamacare healthcare plans, like Obama and his family, members of Congress and their families and staff, and many others.
Abu Musab Al-Suri’s Plan to Cripple the American Economy
While most Americans know the name Osama bin Laden, very few know the name Abu Musab al-Suri. While bin Laden provided the charisma and wealth to found Al Qaeda, al-Suri, one of his top lieutenants, provided valuable strategic advice to the fledgling jihadi network. A member of the Muslim Brotherhood from the time he was a student, al-Suri rose to become a member of the Brotherhood’s military command in 1982.
Al-Suri was a calculating thinker, who recognized that to bring down America (and the West in general) would require something different than mass murders. He urged focusing on high value infrastructure targets that would force the United States to incur significant economic costs. A test run of this strategy was the 2004 Madrid train bombings, of which Al-Suri was the mastermind. There is a good case to be made that the World Trade Center was long in Al Qaeda’s sights precisely because it was a bastion of capitalism, an important hub of New York City’s communications network, and the headquarters for many prominent international companies.
Of course, there’s little sense in physically targeting an economy that has already been knuckled-down under onerous and impossible to comply with bureaucratic regulatory policies. Various sectors of the American economy have already been effectively taken over by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Obama Administration, including: healthcare, banking, energy, agriculture (think EPA and FDA), and transportation. The most recent target, the Internet, without the consent of Congress or the people, was seized by untold new powers the Obama Administration has chose to implement through yet unknown regulation, censorship, and taxation.
Meanwhile, financial columnist Charles Ortel has evidenced how the American economy is fundamentally as weak as it has been in one generation. Following the 2008 economic collapse, the government pumped in trillions of dollars to “allegedly” stabilize and jumpstart the economy (recall the misnamed “Stimulus”). As of January 2015 there were fewer core jobs in the private sector economy than ten years prior. Compounding this economic morass was what became of America’s national debt; Ortel reports that during roughly the same period (2005-2014) America’s total national debt increased by $16.5 trillion to $58 trillion. In fact, the most recent data available from 2012 and 2013 shows pre-tax incomes decreasing among high, middle, and low income earning households.
Abu Musab al-Suri’s international terrorist superstar was Osama bin Laden. However, when it came to economically knee capping America’s economy, Barack Hussein Obama proved far more effective than even bin Laden.
U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Doha, Qatar – Bipartisan Influence by Muslim Brotherhood
What would be powerful enough to exert this influence over the American economy? What entity could be that pervasive as to reach into big businesses throughout the United States?
In February 2010, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce established its first legal Chamber in Doha, Qatar (AmCham Qatar). Qatar, is a prolific financier of terror. Qatar is also home to the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Yusuf al-Qaradawi, now an Interpol fugitive. The Chamber represents American business but also has an explicitly political and diplomatic mission. In the words of the Chamber’s Executive Vice President and COO, David Chavern, AmCham Qatar is “another concrete example of positive U.S. engagement with the Muslim world.”
AmCham Qatar’s premiers sponsors include ExxonMobil, The Boeing Corporation, Carnegie Mellon Qatar, Northwestern University in Qatar, and Fluor. Additionally Lockheed Martin, Bloomberg, Bank of America, Miramax, among many more, have significant involvement with the State of Qatar.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, with its close ties to Qatar, is by far the largest lobbying spender in Washington, D.C.; it spent $136.3 million in 2012 lobbying Congress. Business is a bipartisan endeavor and Qatar – arguably today’s most prolific financial sponsor of Islamic terror – carries great influence in both Republican and Democrat circles.
Indeed, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham last year said on the record, “I’m going to embrace being a Chamber of Commerce Republican.” He was part of a bipartisan Senate delegation to Qatar in January 2015 that also included Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Bob Corker (R-TN), John Barrasso (R-WY), Angus King (I-ME) and Tim Kaine (D-VA).
The Brotherhood’s Connections to Policies and Scandals of the Obama Administration
In June 2012, The Daily Caller reported that CAIR (The Council on American Islamic Relations) had attended “hundreds” of meetings with the Obama Administration. CAIR is a Muslim Brotherhood front organization with close ties to Hamas and its goal of “civilization jihad.”
Why so many meetings? What type of business or public policy portfolio does CAIR have to address to the White House? Consider a few of many examples:
Militarization of the Department of Homeland Security: While running for President, Obama stated several times that America needed a civilian national security force that matched the might of the U.S. military. He declared in 2008, “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
To many, this sounded like a call for a militarized federal police force. Since then, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been revised and influenced by Mohammed Elibiary, Arif Alikhan, Eboo Patel, and Mohamed Magid, all of whom have documented ties with the Muslim Brotherhood. The question remains: what bureaucrats are being armed, for what purpose, and to be used against whom?
Domestic Spying and Wiretapping: While journalists at the Associated Press and Fox News have been targets of wiretapping ordered by Eric Holder’s misnamed Department of Justice, the National Security Agency’s (NSA) dragnet of American citizens is broader than anyone suspected. As a result, lawsuits and FOIAs from the Associated Press and Judicial Watch have been initiated against the State Department. Additionally, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and Freedom Works filed a lawsuit against the Obama Administration for violating the 4th Amendment for acquiring citizens’ phone records and data without cause or a warrant.
Curiously, the 2014 leaked spreadsheets by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden reveal that the email tracking of Muslim American leaders ended in 2008. CAIR Director Nihad Awad was listed as a subject of interest as was Faisal Gill a Republican operative who held a Department of Homeland Security top-level security clearance.
Purge of Military Officers and Christianity: Over the past several years, the U.S. military has been purged of hundreds of high-ranking officers. Many of these dedicated life-long military leaders were dismissed for trivial “offenses.” Simultaneously, Christianity, Christians, and Bible are being purged from the U.S. military. Christian chaplains are being reprimanded for sharing their faith. Indeed, the Pentagon has gone so far as to state that sharing the Gospel could result in court marshals for anyone in the military. The Family Research Council has listed recent actions taken against Christians in the military and released a video detailing the “Clear and Present Danger” Christians in the military face.
Anti-Police Protests: In conjunction with the militarization of DHS, the Obama Administration and Eric Holder’s “Justice” Department have targeted state and local law enforcement. Their anti-police agenda culminated last summer with orchestrated riots in Ferguson, Missouri and violent protests in New York City. Among the most prominent groups involved in these protests was ANSWER, a pro-Palestinian group that had on its original steering committee the Muslim Students Association.
And—the NYC cop killer Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley had publicly stated on his Facebook page that he was a former Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) (Muslim Brotherhood) employee. At the time of the killing, ISNA’s president was Mohamed Magid, an advisor to Obama, DHS, and the National Security Council.
Immigration and Amnesty: A recent editorial revealed that from 2010 to 2013 “the Obama Administration imported almost 300,000 immigrants from Muslim nations — more immigrants than the U.S. let in from Central America and Mexico combined over that period.” Given the paucity of background and security checks, as well as those countries’ high number of terrorist acts, it is any surprise that the FBI now admits that ISIS is active in all 50 of our United States?
The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), another Muslim Brotherhood front organization operating in the United States, conveniently issued a policy paper in September 2013 calling for “comprehensive immigration reform.”
Moreover, in January Obama appointed Fatima Noor, a veiled Muslim woman, to the position of “Special Assistant in the Office of the Director for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in the Department of Homeland Security.” Other than her religion, her credentials appear to be non-existent.
It is hardly an exaggeration to state that the administration is taking gradual steps towards eliminating the very concept of American citizenship. In fact, a recent White House conference call explicitly stated that new immigrants would not need to assimilate into American society. Rather, they should establish their own ethnic communities within the United States, creating “societies within societies,” quite similar to Gaza and the no-go zones expanding throughout Europe.
Common Core: The connection between Common Core and the international terror group, the Muslim Brotherhood, is linked to, once again, Qatar. The Connect All Schools initiative is a program to promote “One World Education.” It is aligned to Common Core State Standards, and is funded by the Qatar Foundation International (QFI). The director of QFI’s Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics is Tariq Ramadan, grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder, Hassan al-Banna.
According to WND, in 2011, QFI “partnered with the Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to facilitate matchmaking between classrooms in the U.S. and international schools through … the “Connect All Schools” project.” QFI states on its website that the initiative was founded in response to Obama’s infamous 2009 Cairo speech, during which the Muslim Brotherhood was seated in the front row.
Participation of the Qatar Foundation International puts in proper context the ever more prevalent cases of Sharia (i.e. Islamic law) incursions into American schools, such as: girls forced to cover up like devout Muslims on school sponsored trips to mosques; Islamic vocabulary lessons in high school; the teaching of Islamic culture; teaching the five pillars of Islam and “A call to jihad;” and Qatar investing $5 million to teach Arabic in schools.
Finally, any treatment of Common Core would not be complete without mentioning the involvement of Obama’s mentor, domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. Ayers received $49.2 million from Vartan Gregorian, a board member of the Qatar Foundation who is also involved with Obama’s White House Fellowships Commission. Gregorian is an integral part of “Connect All Schools.”
IRS Targeting of Conservative and Pro-Israel Groups: The targeting of Obama’s political enemies is reminiscent of the politicized bureaucracies of all tyrannies, from Nazism to Communism and everything inbetween. Among the persecuted by apparatchik Lois Lerner were: hundreds of conservative groups, Constitutional groups, groups that criticized Obama, 5 pro-Israel groups, and an 83 year old Nazi concentration camp survivor.
As usual, the pattern of targeting conservatives, Israel, and Jews in general is the trend of the Obama Administration … and the Muslim Brotherhood. The IRS’s targets nearly mirrors DHS’s profiling of “right wing sovereign citizens and extremist groups” (Evangelical Christians) as the greatest terrorist threat America faces, which was approved by CAIR.
In addition to suppressing political enemies, the IRS has actually enabled the Muslim Brotherhood through Obama’s half-brother, Malik. In 2011, the IRS granted a 501(c)(3) statuses to two groups connected to Barack Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama: the Barack H. Obama Foundation (BHOF) and Mama Sarah Obama Foundation (MSOF).
Malik Obama has documented associations with the Muslim Brotherhood, wanted terrorists, and terrorist organizations, including Sudan’s Muslim Brotherhood leader Omar al-Bashir, the organizers of the infamous 2010 Gaza Flotilla, and Hamas. In fact, contravening all standard practices, the IRS granted the tax exempt status to BHOF retroactively, after it was learned that Malik was falsely and criminally representing his organization as a charity (which, at the time, it was not). The Shoebat Foundation produced a full report of these activities.
The George Soros Connection
In more than one of these instances, the fingerprints of billionaire investor (and breaker of nations and currencies) George Soros can be found. Soros operates a vast network of various “leftist” front organizations. In reality, these organizations are anything but democratically “liberal.” His groups regularly attack capitalism, Israel, and fund the subversive destruction of nearly every area of American society. It is not the intention here to dissect Soros’s network and political machinations, but to place him within the context of the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration of America.
Soros has facilitated and financed various campaigns against American citizens:
Combating “Islamophobia”: Soros “donated” $10,117,186 to the Center for American Progress (CAP) since 2000. One of CAP’s major initiatives is to combat “sharia hysteria” by the “religious right.”
Ferguson unrest: Soros’s Open Society Institute donated $33 million in one year to various activist groups in Ferguson who created the riots, protests, and destruction of local businesses and homes.
Immigration: Prominent Muslim American immigration lawyer Rabia Chaudry is employed by another Soros-controlled group, the New America Foundation. Chaudry previously worked as Media Relations Director for CAIR-CT. His involvement with Obama’s Executive Order for Amnesty for illegal immigrants cannot be underestimated.
Common Core: A project of the Soros-funded CAP, Common Core was conceived under the direction of John Podesta, CAP’s former president. Podesta, a Counselor to Obama, is also a Visiting Professor at Georgetown University Law Center. (Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service has a campus in Doha, Qatar; all campus costs were fully covered by a Qatar Foundation grant that also funds aspects of Common Core.)
Net Neutrality Regulation: According to the Washington Examiner Soros funded nearly $200 million to “net neutrality” groups, which facilitated regulations bypassing Congress and the American people. The result was approval by an FCC committee or regulations few have seen or know anything about but are widely expected to regulate, censor, and tax content on the Internet and television.
Tyranny, whatever name it’s given, has one methodology. Tyranny begins by creating a culture of fear, which is marked by control, intimidation, persecution, and terror. The poorer and more desperate the people become, the more readily they’ll meld into the pottage of their government’s political domination.
Taken alone, none of these events would be of much concern in a country of more than 300 million people. Even the general feeling of depression and oppression by government could be overlooked as a result of global economic conditions, seen as “outside the control” of even the President of the United States.
But when seen together through the lens of the Muslim Brotherhood’s carefully constructed plan it becomes quite clear that America is being destroyed from within. Attacks on cops, illegal immigration policies, IRS persecution of American citizens, the infiltration and propaganda being taught to children through Common Core school curricula all originate from the genesis of the Muslim Brotherhood.
American citizens have an opportunity and dire responsibility to reverse this course by demanding the Constitution be enforced, terrorists be deported, and that the protection of citizens come first before any and all policies.
[i] The nominal private ownership which was centrally directed by the Nazis was called Zwangswirtschaft, German for “compulsory economy.” Writes the famous economist Ludwig von Mises in Human Action, “The second pattern [of socialism] (we may call it the Hindenburg or German pattern) nominally and seemingly preserves private ownership of the means of production and keeps the appearance of ordinary market prices, wages, and interest rates. There are, however, no longer entrepreneurs, but only shop managers (Betriebfuehrer in the terminology of Nazi legislation). These shop managers are seemingly instrumental in the conduct of the enterprises entrusted to them; they buy and sell, hire and discharge workers and remunerate their services, contract debts and pay interest and amortization. But in all their activities they are bound to obey unconditionally the order issued by government’s supreme office of production management. This office… tells the shop managers what and how to produce, at what prices and from whom to buy, at what prices and to whom to sell. It assigns every worker to his job and fixes his wages. It decrees to whom and on what terms the capitalists must entrust their funds. Market exchange is merely a sham.”
