Michele Bachmann Responds To Attacks After Her Call To Investigate Muslim Brotherhood Infiltration Of US Gov’t

July 21, 2012 at 2:13 pm

Transcript of Rep. Michele Bachmann’s recent interview with Glenn Beck:

(Please note that I have embedded various related links within the transcript, that I hope will prove helpful to my readers so that they may better understand the threat we are up against.)

GLENN:  There are a few people in Washington D.C. that I trust and tell the truth.  There are a few people that call me every time they turn on a water faucet from Washington D.C. and they say, “I just want you to know I’m holding a press conference today because I turned on a water faucet.”  You’re like, oh.  And after a while, I don’t take those people’s phone calls and after a while I stop reading their e‑mails.  And there are a few people that are in it for the wrong reasons.  And then there are a few people ‑‑ Jim DeMint is one of them, Michele Bachmann is one of them, Mike Lee is one of them ‑‑ that do it for the right reasons and are clean.  I mean, we were talking about this with Jim DeMint the other day.  Look what Jim DeMint has done.  Jim DeMint just stopped the Law of the Sea Treaty.  I mean, that’s ‑‑ that’s a pretty amazing thing to do.  You can’t take Jim DeMint out because he’s clean.  Does he make mistakes from time to time?  Sure.  Everybody does.  But look at what this guy has done.  Michele Bachmann is the same way.  She’s a good, decent person.  May not agree with her all the time, but she’s a good, decent woman.  And she is standing and she’s on the intelligence committee.  Rarely do I get calls from Michele Bachmann.  But when I do, they’re always important.  And she has called me a few times and lately it’s been about the Muslim Brotherhood because I’ve been ‑‑ I’ve been talking to people in Washington D.C. and saying, “Hey, what’s the deal with the Muslim Brotherhood thing?  Are we looking into this?”  Michele called me this morning and she said, “Glenn, there are decent people up on the Hill that are trying to expose the Muslim Brotherhood and it is spreading.  This disease is spreading so rapidly, it is breathtaking.”  This goes to a documentary that we did about, what, four months ago, three months ago where we exposed what this president is doing with the Muslim Brotherhood and how it is infiltrating all levels.  And we’re at a place now that if we don’t stop it, we’re approaching a point of no return.  And they are purging everything from our military, from our FBI.  So we’re not even teaching what the Muslim Brotherhood stands for.  We’re not teaching what radical Islam even is.  So how are you ever going to find it?  How are you ever going to recognize it?  It’s out of control.

The inspectors general were asked a few questions by a few members of congress.  Michele Bachmann is here to talk about it and this is important.  I beg you to listen because the elephant media and Drudge, Fox, have come out on the wrong side on this issue.  They are following John McCain’s lead.  It’s the wrong lead.  And if you’re not there to back these people up, they’re going to be eaten by CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Michele Bachmann, welcome to the program.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  Glenn, thank you so much.  What an important topic, and I have to say that you and the people at The Blaze have been leading the pack on this.  And thank you for the wonderful documentary that you’ve done because the influence today of the Muslim Brotherhood at the highest levels, from the White House, to the Pentagon, to the FBI, even to our United States military truly is breathless and people have to know about it.

GLENN:  Okay.  So tell me what happened.  You and who else wrote a letter to the inspectors general’s office and said, “There are some questions here that need to be addressed.”

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  That’s right.  It was three members of the intelligence committee:  Myself, Lynn Westmoreland from Georgia, Tom Rooney from Florida and two members of the judiciary committee, Trent Franks of Arizona and Louie Gohmert of Texas all signed onto a letter.  We asked numerous questions of the federal government because a letter was sent ‑‑ well, let me just back up.  After the Fort Hood tragedy, a report was issued that said the real problem in our government is that we are not teaching FBI agents or our military to recognize radical Islam.  So that’s what we need to do.  We need to teach about it.

Well, in response to that, 50 ‑‑ over 50 Muslim organizations wrote a letter requesting that the White House start a task force to stop that from happening.  Five days after the White House got this letter, this October 19th letter ‑‑ and people can see it on my website, or maybe you have it on The Blaze ‑‑ five days after the White House got this letter from the 50 Muslim groups, they started the purge of the federal government.  Let me tell you, the federal government doesn’t do anything in five days.  But they started the purge of the FBI.  So now the FBI, who are supposed to be trained in radical Islam, elements have been purged off their training materials so they are no longer being taught about what radical Islam is in order to be able to truly identify it ahead of time.  This is serious.  This is also happening throughout our United States military, Department of Justice, and Homeland Security.  And the word “purge” isn’t my word.  That’s the word used by the 50 Muslim organizations.  They demanded that the president purge the training materials and the trainers.  And so already people have been fired who formerly were teaching what radical Islam is.  They’ve been fired or they’ve been reassigned.  And they ask that the library be purged.  Americans don’t purge libraries, but they demanded that the FBI’s library be purged.  All of this was happening and so we wrote a letter to the inspectors general asking the question:  Don’t you think you should look into the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood and what it is they’re seeking to do.

GLENN:  Okay.  So you write this, which is your job.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  That’s our duty.

GLENN:  Your duty to protect and defend the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  That’s right.

GLENN:  There is no question in any sane person’s mind that the Muslim Brotherhood ‑‑ I mean, look at this ‑‑ look at this guy who ran and won the presidency in Egypt.  He says, “Oh, I’m a moderate.  I’m a moderate.”  As soon as he wins, it’s Sharia law, we’re going down, you know, death for Allah is our highest goal.  It’s the all the same crap.  So ‑‑

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  And they call for Jerusalem to become Egypt’s capital, not Israel’s capital.  They call for the demise of Israel and the demise of the United States.  They believe in civilization, jihad, which is to come into the United States and subvert the United States from within.  I know it sounds like radical stuff, but all you have to do is look ‑‑ right, just look at the Muslim Brotherhood and who they say they are.

GLENN:  Okay.  So when you wrote this letter, then Keith Ellison comes out.  And Keith Ellison is ‑‑ he has a record of being the Mafia hitman.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  Well, he has a long record of being associated with CAIR and with the Muslim Brotherhood.  CAIR is an unindicted co‑conspirator, as stated in the large terrorist financing case that we’ve had in the United States of America and so he came out and essentially wanted to shut down the inspectors general from even looking into any of the questions that we were asking.  So he wanted to shut it down.

*The Obama Administration Drops CAIR Terror Financing Indictments*

In response I wrote another letter back to Keith Ellison, a 16‑page letter which I would encourage all of your listeners to go and read this letter.  It’s what I call a bulletproof letter.  I have 59 footnotes with one example after another of the penetration of the Muslim Brotherhood into the federal government.  One of the most recent is so outrageous, it’s hard to believe.  Two weeks ago the State Department broke its own law, like I said, and let a foreign terrorist come into the United States, into the White House, meet with the National Security Council ‑‑

GLENN:  Listen to this.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: ‑‑ and demand the release of the blind Sheik.  This is absolutely outrageous.

GLENN:  There’s more to this story that I think is even more outrageous.  Not only did they break their own laws, give this guy a special waiver, bring him into the White House.  This is a guy who is a known ‑‑ part of a known terrorist organization.  He then campaigns to have the blind sheikh released, but who pays for his airline ticket?

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  We do.  The taxpayers.  What I want to know is did we upgrade him to first class.  I mean, this is ‑‑ this is outrageous what has happened.  And so then now what’s happened is the attack machine has been turned on myself and the other members of congress who have been asking the questions, that somehow we’re the Muslim haters, we’re the witch‑hunters, we’re the new Joe McCarthyites because we’re asking these questions.  All the while two weeks ago the Obama administration breaks federal law to bring someone that we list on the State Department as a terrorist organization, a member of that terrorist organization, we bring him into the White House?  You don’t get any higher when it comes to intelligence secrets, you don’t get any higher than the National Security Council.  He sits down with the National Security Council in our White House and has the guts to demand that we release one of the worst, most violent terrorists that we have behind bars.  He wants us to let him out of prison, to let him go free, the guy who was the mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the blind sheikh.

GLENN:  So let’s ‑‑

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  And you don’t hear a peep about this.

GLENN:  No, of course not.  Let me ‑‑ let me take you here because one of the more controversial things is you say Anthony Weiner’s wife will is ‑‑ has connections to the Muslim Brotherhood.  Now, this is important because she works for Hillary Clinton.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  She is the chief aid for the ‑‑ to the Secretary of State, and we quoted from a document, and this has been well reported all across Arab media, that her father ‑‑ her late father who’s now deceased was a part of the Muslim Brotherhood.  Her brother was a part of the Muslim Brotherhood, and her mother was a part of what’s called the Muslim Sisterhood.  It would be, we have requirements to get a high level security clearance.  One thing that the government looks at are your associations, and in particular your family associations.  And this applies to everyone.  It would be the same that is true with me.  If my family members were associated with Hamas, a terrorist organization, that alone could be sufficient to disqualify me from getting a security clearance.  So all we did is ask, did the federal government look into her family associations before she got a high level security clearance.

GLENN:  And it’s not an unreasonable thing to ask seeing that this president and this administration has ‑‑ didn’t know ‑‑ apparently didn’t know that Van Jones was the founding ‑‑ one of the founding members of a radical revolutionary, anti‑American, Communist organization, and he’s in the White House.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  That’s right.  That’s right, and it’s not ‑‑

GLENN:  So something is ‑‑ somebody’s dropping the ball some place, or somebody knows.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  That’s right.  And somebody has been dropping the ball since the beginning of the Obama administration.  And this isn’t intent to be partisan or out to get the president.  I mean, quite honestly on the intelligence committee I’m happy to report we are the most bipartisan committee I’ve ever been a part of, and with all of these unprecedented leaks that have been coming out from our federal government, all of which, by the way, undermine Israel, and Israel’s ability to defend herself against a nuclear Iran, we are with one voice, Democrat and Republican, outraged by these leaks that are coming out of the administration.  Never before in the history of the country have we seen this level of leaks coming out, but at the same time there’s also a parallel track of influence from the Muslim Brotherhood in the highest levels of the federal government, and we think that we need to get answers to these questions.  And that’s the purpose of our letters.  We’re asking that the inspectors general answer these questions, and Keith Ellison is trying to shut this, these questions down from getting addressed.

GLENN:  I’m really tight on time and I want to hit a couple of other things.  Stu’s got ‑‑ Stu’s been going over all of this information, and he’s got one question for you.

STU:  Well, I see here that you did like, too, the actual military document that talks about what is a potentially disqualifying condition for security clearance.  It says, quote:  Contact with a foreign family member, if that contact creates a heightened risk of foreign exploitation, inducement, manipulation, pressure or coercion.  Then goes on to say the subject’s closest and most frequent contacts are the ones most likely to present a security risk.  And you’re talking about both her father, who’s now deceased, her mother and her brother.  So I think the media seems to be holding you to this standard that you have to have this case completely proven when it seems like what you’re saying is, is there a legitimate process question:  Are they actually asking these questions before handing out these clearances.

GLENN:  Right.  This has been ‑‑ I mean, your links and your footnotes ‑‑ and they’re down, by the way.  I don’t know if you know that, Michele.  But the Al‑Jazeera links that you put in and you said, here, go link ‑‑ go find the story on Al‑Jazeera.  We can’t get to them this morning.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  Oh, really?

GLENN:  Oh, yeah.  We’re going to need ‑‑

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  Gosh.  Maybe we can go ‑‑ maybe we can go in the past and dig them up so that we can resurrect them.

GLENN:  Yeah, we’re going to have to get them because they’ve either been scrubbed or they’re being hammered, you know, by so much traffic which I highly doubt.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  Heavens.

GLENN:  So that’s ‑‑ I mean, you have links showing that in Al‑Jazeera’s own coverage.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  Well, these links were up as of last Friday.

GLENN:  Yeah, well, they’re not ‑‑

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  I wrote the letter and we got it out by midnight last Friday night and the links were up last Friday.  So they’ve taken them down.  Gee.

GLENN:  I will tell you that that’s not unusual.  As we’ve followed these stories like this, that’s really not unusual anymore.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  That’s even more reason why we should be looking into this.

GLENN:  Yeah.  Let me just say this to you and then one more quick question.  I just wrote a letter to the president of my company for The Blaze and he’s in charge of all content.  He’s kind of our news, you know, our uber news director, if you will, he’s the president of content.  And I just said we know the truth on this story.  We’ve had this for a while.  I do not want this company to sit down on this.  So we are going to cover this and continue to cover this to make sure that people hear this story because, Michele, you guys are absolutely right and it is a matter of national survival.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  That’s right.

GLENN:  Let me ask you ‑‑

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  National security.

GLENN:  Let me ask you one quick question.  John McCain and all of the elephant media are falling right in line with the Muslim Brotherhood.  Bullcrap.  What did John McCain do yesterday?

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  He went on the Senate floor and he gave a spirited defense of Huma Abedin, who is a friend of his.  And so that’s what he did and I think ‑‑

GLENN:  But you’re not saying that she is compromised?  You’re saying have we looked into this, right?

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  That’s right.  That’s all we’re saying because we did not infer that she is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood or that she’s working on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood.

GLENN:  Right.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  Our point was regarding the security clearance.

GLENN:  Right.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  And did she have to go through the same sort of process that anyone else has to go to.  Did they check the boxes.  Because if the State Department breaks American law to bring a terrorist into the White House, a member of a terrorist organization, it certainly is conceivable that maybe they looked the other way on issuing the security clearance.  That’s all we’re doing is asking a question.

GLENN:  I have to tell you, we’re at war.  We’re at war with people in the Middle East, and her ‑‑ she’s compromised ‑‑ forget about the Muslim thing.  She’s compromised or could have been compromised.  Her husband was sending dirty photos of himself.  I mean, you know, in a wartime, you would never put that person in a delicate situation because the family has already been compromised.  But I digress.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  Well, and ‑‑

GLENN:  Thank you very much.  Go ahead.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN:  I was just going to say the Muslim Brotherhood elements have declared war against the United States.

GLENN:  All right.

CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: ‑‑ and Israel.  And we need to recognize that they are at war, even if we don’t fully, are onto this.  And we’ve got to, but I thank you and everyone at The Blaze for taking this on because the media has a completely different view of it.  So thank you.

GLENN:  Well, they’re always ‑‑ they’re almost always wrong, especially when it comes to these things.  Michele, thank you very much and keep up the fight.  Never sit down.  We’ve got your back.

In a rational society, these Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups would be marginalized.

First, let’s have a look at a detailed list of the convicted Holy Land Foundation trial defendants:
Dallas Morning News – Crime Blog

  • Ghassan Elashi, of Richardson, a Holy Land Foundation founder, received 65 years for support of Hamas, money laundering and tax fraud.
  • Shukri Abu Baker, of Garland, who was Holy Land’s CEO, received 65 years for support of Hamas, money laundering and tax fraud.
  • Mufid Abdulqader, of Richardson, was a top volunteer fundraiser and sang about Hamas in a Palestinian band that played at fundraising rallies, received 20 years for conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization; conspiracy to provide funds, goods and services to a specially designated terrorist; and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
  • Abdulrahman Odeh, who started Holy Land’s office in New Jersey, received 15 years in prison for conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization; conspiracy to provide funds, goods and services to a specially designated terrorist; and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
  • Mohammad El-Mezain, an imam who ran Holy Land’s office in California, received 15 years in prison for providing support to Hamas.

The back story via The Investigative Project on Terrorism:

Today the federal Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the convictions of five former officials of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) accused of illegally routing more than $12 million to the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

In November 2008, a federal jury convicted the five HLF officials on all counts, including conspiring to provide material support to terrorists. The officials subsequently received long prison terms ranging from 15 to 65 years, concluding the largest terror financing case prosecuted in the United States since the 9/11 attacks.

Evidence presented at the trial showed the HLF was part of a broad Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy in the United States called the Palestine Committee that sought to propagate the goals of Hamas in the U.S. with “media, money, and men.” Prosecution exhibits further detailed the existence of a secret Hamas-support network in the U.S. created by the Muslim Brotherhood. A Brotherhood memorandum from 1991 described the group’s goal in America, calling for a “civilization-jihad process” and a “grand jihad” that aimed at “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within … so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

The 170-page opinion issued by a three-judge panel reiterates that after the creation of Hamas in 1987, the Muslim Brotherhood directed its worldwide chapters to establish “Palestine Committees” to promote Hamas objectives from abroad. The Palestine Committee in the U.S. led by Mousa Abu Marzook, the leader of Hamas’s political wing in the 1990s, created the Holy Land Foundation and the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP). The IAP is the progenitor of the present-day Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a leading Muslim Brotherhood group in the U.S. that was also named an unindicted co-conspirator in the case.

Treason –The Obama Administration Drops CAIR Terror Financing Indictments [Updated]

(PJM Exclusive) Did Obama and Holder Scuttle Terror Finance Prosecutions?
High-level source concedes DOJ let off CAIR co-founders and others for political reasons.

Patrick Poole

Treason - The United States' Red Green Alliance - The Obama Administration and Terrorist Front CAIR

…a number of leaders of Islamic organizations (all of whom publicly opposed the King hearings on Muslim radicalization) were about to be indicted on terror finance support charges by the U.S. attorney’s office in Dallas, which had been investigating the case for most of the past decade.But those indictments were scuttled last year at the direction of top-level political appointees within the Department of Justice (DOJ) — and possibly even the White House. Included in those indictments was at least one of the co-founders of CAIR, based on “Declination of Prosecution of Omar Ahmad,” a March 31 DOJ legal memo from Assistant Attorney General David Kris to Acting Deputy Attorney General Gary Grindler. A second DOJ official familiar with the investigation independently confirmed these details. Omar Ahmad is one of CAIR’s co-founders and its chairman emeritus. He was personally named, along with CAIR itself, as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror finance trial in 2007 and 2008. During the trial FBI Agent Lara Burns testified that both Omar Ahmad and current CAIR executive director Nihad Awad were caught on FBI wiretaps attending a 1993 meeting of Hamas leaders in Philadelphia.
……
According to my source, the chief reason outlined in the DOJ memo declining to prosecute CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad was the issue of potential jury nullification. The first Holy Land Foundation trial in 2007 ended in a hung jury. When the case was retried in 2008, all five defendants, former executives of the Holy Land Foundation, were convicted on all 108 counts.

But, according to our DOJ source, possible jury nullification was hardly the primary issue in the DOJ’s scuttling of the terror finance prosecutions. “This was a political decision from the get-go,” the source said.

It was always the plan to initially go after the [Holy Land Foundation] leaders first and then go after the rest of the accomplices in a second round of prosecutions. From a purely legal point of view, the case was solid. Jim Jacks [the U.S. attorney in Dallas who prosecuted the Holy Land Foundation executives] and his team were ready to go. There’s a mountain of evidence against all of these groups that was never introduced during the Holy Land trial and it is damning. We’ve got them on wiretaps. That’s exactly why many of these leaders and groups were named unindicted co-conspirators in the first round of prosecutions.

But from a political perspective there was absolutely no way that they could move forward. That’s why this decision came from the top down. These individuals who were going to be prosecuted are still the administration’s interfaith allies. Not only would these Muslim groups and their friends in the media be screaming “Islamophobia” at the top of their lungs and that this is a war against Islam, but the administration would look like absolute fools. It’s kind of hard to prosecute someone on material support for terrorism when you have pictures of them getting handed awards from DOJ and FBI leaders for their supposed counter-terror efforts. How would Holder explain that when we’re carting off these prominent Islamic leaders in handcuffs for their role in a terror finance conspiracy we’ve been investigating for years? This is how bad the problem is. Why are we continuing to have anything to do with these groups knowing what we know?

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” –Cicero

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) literally spits on America and on the 4th of July America’s Independence Day no less! I’m sure the date was specifically chosen to magnify the insult.

Did the leadership of ISNA randomly pick our nation’s Independence Day to hold their event? Islamic scholars openly lecture to not follow man-made holidays created by the Jews and Christians such as Christmas, Easter, Independence Day, etc. In addition, ISNA informs American educators that Muslim children are not encouraged to any allegiance to America, which also includes wearing lapel pins or standing for the pledge of allegiance.

But somehow the covering up of sacred [roll eyes] female muslim hair with an American flag is ok….

46th Annual ISNA Convention
Theme: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

How dare they. “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”, one of the most well known phrases in the United States Declaration of Independence. What the hell does that have to do with Islam?

Answer: NOTHING  –”Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” does not exist in Islam. Not in it’s true meaning.

And:

From the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) profile on Discover the Networks:

Excerpt

According to terrorism expert Steven Emerson, ISNA “is a radical group hiding under a false veneer of moderation”; “convenes annual conferences where Islamist militants have been given a platform to incite violence and promote hatred” (for instance, al Qaeda supporter and PLO official Yusuf Al-Qaradhawi was invited to speak at an ISNA conference); has held fundraisers for terrorists (after Hamas leader Mousa Marzook was arrested and eventually deported in 1997, ISNA raised money for his defense); has condemned the U.S. government’s post-9/11 seizure of Hamas’ and Palestinian Islamic Jihad‘s financial assets; and publishes a bi-monthly magazine, Islamic Horizons, that “often champions militant Islamist doctrine.”

Adds Emerson: “I think ISNA has been an umbrella, also a promoter of groups that have been involved in terrorism. I am not going to accuse the ISNA of being directly involved in terrorism. I will say ISNA has sponsored extremists, racists, people who call for Jihad against the United States.”

Emphasis mine

An Islamic Trojan horse. ISNA, dear readers is a prime example of what many may claim to be moderate Islam. They are either ignorant or bald face liars. You see to be an Islamic threat one does not have to carry out an act of terrorism. There are many working behind the scenes infiltrating and plotting. As a terror support network. Do not allow yourselves to be fooled. The “threat” is real and it is operating right here on US soil! And worst of all, ISNA are not the lone dogs from hell in the fight against our “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”  They are coming at US from all directions.
