Obama Hangs With - and Endorses - the Muslim Brotherhood

July 22, 2016

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Last Thursday, President Obama celebrated the end of the Muslim period of fasting known as Ramadan. The company he kept on the occasion spoke volumes about his sympathies – not simply towards Islam, but for Islamic supremacism.

Now, Team Obama treats the White House invitation list as a more closely held state secret than Hillary Clinton did actual, highly classified information. But a number of known, stealthy “civilization jihadists” used the occasion to share via social media the fact that they were, once again, “inside the wire.”

As important and as usual, Mr. Obama excluded pro-American, anti-jihad Muslim reformers from his celebration. The message to their community could not be more clear: Those tied to the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood are your leaders.

It is exceedingly undesirable – and dangerous – for such a message to be assiduously conveyed by the President of the United States.

The End of the Line for Turkish Democracy

July 21, 2016

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Turkish President Recep Tayyep Erdogan once described democracy as a bus you disembark upon reaching your destination. Erdogan is now forcing his country out of the bus.  

In the aftermath of a short-lived and hapless coup attempt, he has declared a three-month state of emergency, facilitating his purge of political opponents and consolidation of power.  It will also help Erdogan complete his fundamental transformation of Turkey, from a secular Muslim nation into a sharia-adherent and brutally repressive Islamic Caliphate. 

One of those political opponents is Fethullah Gulen, another Turkish Islamist who runs a global cult and business empire from an armed camp in Pennsylvania’s Poconos mountains. Erdogan wants him extradited on the grounds that Gulen was behind the coup.  Washington is investigating those charges.  It should also investigate – and shut down – Gulen’s 150-plus problematic charter schools in this country.

When Will Obama Pardon Hillary Clinton?

July 20, 2016

Thisis Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

It’snow just a question of time. Specifically, when will President Obama pardon Hillary Clinton? 

Thatquestion was the inevitable take-away from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’spowerful indictment – literally – of the former Secretary of State in hisaddress to the GOP Convention last night. The one-time federal prosecutor methodically laid out the litany oflies, malfeasant and other criminal activities with which Mrs. Clinton could,and should, be charged.  The crowd foundher “guilty,” again and again. 

Naturally,the most politicized Justice Department ever won’t prosecute the incipientDemocratic presidential nominee.  ButGov. Christie showed how – all other things being equal – Hillary will be triedand convicted in the court of public opinion.  

Theonly possible way out is for President Obama to pardon her preemptively – andsoon.  It may not change the ultimateverdict, but it would commute Hillary’s sentence.

What’s So Hard to Understand About Allahu Akbar?

July 19, 2016

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. 

To paraphrase Winston Churchill, never have so many been so confused for so long about two little words: Allahu Akbar.  

That would, of course, be the Muslim invocation of divine blessing. Typically, it is uttered by jihadists in the midst of their murderous and often suicidal rampages.  

We are usually told it translates as “God is great.”  In fact, it is a supremacist battle-cry: “God is greater”!  

Even more astonishing than systematic government and media failure to correctly convey the meaning of this phrase is the insistence that its recitation in the act of executing or maiming others is not instructive.  

This isn’t hard. When killers using guns, trucks, suicide bombs or axes shout “Allahu Akbar,” they mean for us to die or submit.  

We better get this right – and fight back effectively – if we don’t like those choices.

Will We Let the Red-Green-Black Revolution Succeed?

July 18, 2016

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

More dead police officers. This time in Baton Rouge at the hands of a member of the Nation of Islam, a group that promotes black separatism and Sharia-supremacism.

It turns out that such a combination is not confined to Louis Farakahan’s cult. There is now at work in America a true Red-Green-Black axis bringing together radical leftists, Islamists and increasingly violent inciters of black victimhood.

A prime representative of this axis is Khalila Sabra. She’s a black convert to Islam. She works for the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim American Society – and helps the Obama administration bring “refugees” here.

Last December, Sabra exhorted a like-minded crowd by noting that “We are the community that staged a revolution across the world,” then asked, “Why can’t we have that revolution here?”

Unless stopped, that’s just what the Red-Green-Black axis will try to do.

The “Mainstream” Media Must Stop Helping the Jihadists

July 15, 2016

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

For Sharia-supremacists to achieve their goal of “destroying Western civilization from within,” they must first isolate, dominate and weaponize the community of Muslims in non-Muslim lands. In France, which was subjected to another murderous jihadist attack yesterday, this process is well underway.

In the United States, anti-Islamist Muslims are struggling to resist a similar fate – for them and for us. Dr. Zuhdi Jasser of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, this week called on “mainstream” TV networks and newspapers to stop helping the Muslim Brotherhood and their ilk.

America has a profound stake in the outcome of such efforts. With the help of Muslims like Dr. Jasser, chances improve of our identifying and effectively resisting those who seek to impose Sharia’s brutal totalitarianism on all of us.

Please check out – and help disseminate – Dr. Jasser’s important throw-down to the press at aifdemocracy.org.

A Needed Lawsuit to Protect Our Freedom of Speech

July 14, 2016

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Social media platforms like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter have effectively become huge monopolies. They provide what amount to essential public services – offering vehicles for self-expression and information-sharing increasingly critical to the exercise of freedom of speech.

Recently, however, these so-called “new media” giants have adopted “hate speech” policies that allow unaccountable individuals to determine what they will – and won’t – disseminate. The ostensible justification is to impede the Islamic State and other terrorists from inciting violence.

In practice, though, their critics are also being silenced. For example, for a time last week, YouTube removed a powerful short video by CounterJihad.com that explains sharia and the Muslim Brotherhood’s role in insinuating it here.

Yesterday, the federal government’s enabling of such censorship was challenged in court. Your freedom may be riding on this suit. Find out more at AmericanFreedomLawCenter.org.

Buyer’s Remorse on Iran Deal’s Anniversary

July 13, 2016

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

A year ago, the Obama administration finished negotiating the so-called “Iran nuclear deal.” It’s an anniversary being marked more by buyer’s remorse than celebration.

In his new book entitled Obamabomb: The Fraudulent Nuclear Deal with Iran, career intelligence officer Fred Fleitz exposes the myriad fatal flaws of this unsigned “political understanding” with one of the most dangerous, and treacherous, regimes on earth. In the intervening year, it’s gotten worse, with Iran demanding – and extracting – still more concessions from Team Obama.

As predicted by Mr. Fleitz and others, we have paid some $150 billion for accelerating Iranian terrorism, regional destabilization, missile and even nuclear developments. Taken together, the Obamabomb deal has not only intensified the threats to America and her allies, including especially Israel. It has emboldened the mullahs in Tehran to act on them.

Some anniversary. Some legacy, Mr. President.

China is Preparing for Conflict, So Must We

July 12, 2016

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

The International Arbitration Tribunal of the Law of the Sea Treaty has just ruled that one of LOST’s member states, Communist China, has violated the rights of another, the Philippines. Beijing was found to have no valid claim to the South China Sea, despite its manufacturing and arming of islands throughout the region.

The Chinese have imperiously rejected the ruling and are now in a position forcibly to resist any effort to enforce it.

As I and other critics of the Law of the Sea Treaty have long argued, its restrictions only apply to law-abiding nations. Were the U.S. to join, it would impose real burdens on us. But it cannot on countries like China that routinely breach their treaty obligations.

The stage is being inexorably set for conflict in the Western Pacific. China is preparing for it. And so must we.

No More Classified Information for Hillary

July 11, 2016

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Thanks in large measure to Barack Obama’s appalling legacy, the next president is going to inherit a world of hurt. To understand the various threats we will be facing, and what steps might mitigate them, will require access to highly classified intelligence.

Once the major political parties select their presidential nominees, the candidates have traditionally been given such access. Never before, however, has the FBI determined that one of those nominees has been “extremely careless” with classified information.

After serially lying about her misconduct in this regard for months, Hillary Clinton has adopted the line that it was mistake to use an unprotected, home-brew server for all of her official emails and promises she won’t do it again.

No one else in America with her record of what amounts to criminally “gross negligence” would be given the chance. Hillary shouldn’t either.
