McCain chews out Ga. congressman for ’specious, degrading’ attack

U.S. Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, Republican of Georgia, has joined four other Republican congressmen in alleging infiltration of top levels of the U.S. government by the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization that according to the congressmen is “devoted to destroying Western civilization from within” and “is determined to impose shariah world wide.”

Huma Abedin

Huma Abedin

More specifically, Westmoreland and his colleagues have demanded an investigation of Huma Abedin, deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,  whom they claim has tight ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and has perverted U.S. policy on its behalf, producing decisions that may “pose security risks for this nation, its people and interests.”

Westmoreland and his colleagues, including former GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, cite no evidence for that scurrilous claim.

Earlier today, another former GOP presidential candidate took to the floor of the U.S. Senate to condemn Westmoreland and his colleagues. Here are excerpts from the remarks by U.S. Sen. John McCain:

“To say that the accusations made in both documents are not substantiated by the evidence they offer is to be overly polite and diplomatic about it. It is far better, and more accurate, to talk straight: These allegations about Huma, 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… These attacks on Huma have no logic, no basis, and no merit. And 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….

All Americans owe Huma a debt of gratitude for her many years of superior public service. I hope these ugly and unfortunate attacks on her can be immediately brought to an end and put behind us before any further damage is done to a woman, an American, of genuine patriotism and love of country.”

Thank you, Sen. McCain.

(Two notes:

One: I have contacted Westmoreland’s office by email requesting any response that he might have to McCain’s statement. If a response is forthcoming, I will post it as soon as I receive it.

Two: Although it is not relevant here, Abedin is the wife of former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, who resigned in the wake of his infamous social-media escapades.)

M. Line — “It is interesting that Romney took flak for not denouncing a person saying that Obama committed treason but Obama’s campaign can accuse Romney of a felony without much repurcusion.”

Where, exactly is the accusation? You yourself admit that Cutter said that Romney “may have” done so. That’s not an accusation.

“[Muslims] have to groom the next city councilor, the next governor the future president, the first Muslim president,” he said in May at the Icna Mosque in Hartford, CT.

Thnn Congressman Carson went into detail over his “visionary” image of a Muslim President of the United States:

“Now brothers, I don’t mean to hurt your feelings, but that may be a sister. … Can you imagine a sister in the White House with Secret Service, with a hijab on? I don‘t know if you’re ready for that, that’s visionary right there.”

Bachmann made good points about Clapper’s misstatements. I recall his discomfort with his remarks and the administrations discomfort with his remarks. I read where she mentioned that Abedin may be connected to the M.B. based on the connection her other family members have/had.

“America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrassas, in our schools, where innovation is encouraged, where the foundation is the Quran. And that model that we are pushing in some of our schools meets the multiple needs of students”, Carson said.

I’m sure you’ll all remember this when you are forced to bow on a rug and pray 5 times a day to a God you weren’t raised to believe in. Don’t doubt it could happen. That is the goal – violence is not they only way radical Islam has to attach. They can do it very quietly and effectively by integrating into communities. Dearborn, MI is an example. They have spent years infiltrating that city and now you almost aren’t allowed to be on the streets there if you don’t subscribe to their way of thinking.

Blast me if you will, but my post here is not hateful to any political party or politician. I don’t have to convert a Muslim as a part of my faith, just to live as a witness to the goodness of God. But Islam doesn’t see it like that. No, there is no freedom to believe in he God of your choice under that particular religion.

Last name: Westmoreland
Recorded as Westmoreland, Westmorland, Westmerland, and what may be a southern dialectal of Westmarland, this is an English regional surname. It describes a person from the former county of Westmorland, now part of Cumbria. The placename was originally called Westmoringaland, meaning the territory of the people living west of the Yorkshire moors, and the derivation is from the Olde English pre 7th century words “west-mor-ingas-landa”.

As evidence, she pointed to Abedin’s late father, Professor Syed Z. Abedin, and a 2002 Brigham Young University Law Review article about his work. Bachmann points to a passage saying Abedin founded an organization that received the “quiet but active support” of the the former director of the Muslim World League, an international NGO that was tied to the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe in the 1970s through 1990s. So, to connect Abedin to the Muslim Brotherhood, you have to go through her dead father, to the organization he founded, to a man who allegedly supported it, to the organization that man used to lead, to Europe in the 1970s and 1990s, and finally to the Brotherhood.

As a matter of fact Christians are the only ones that try to convert members of other religions to Christianity by offering them financial and other incentives – this has been happening for decades in countries like India, so much so that the Indian government had to step in.

We have our share of wack jobs in the state of Georgia.Honestly I cringe just as much when I see a Georgia Politician on National tv as I do when I hear a lot of athletes speak.

Before getting back to the topic:

ZEKE

The TADL (Turnip Anti Defamation League) has been notified of your slanderous comments… :-)

KING OF EVERYTHING

“If Huma is a Muslim and she is married to a hook nosed Jew Weiner, then just like James Carville and Mary Matalin, they have more in common than they have differences.”

I don’t know if you think that hook nosed Jew is funny or not, but I don’t.

BLACK GUY
I can get him a good deal on Carpetbags… :-)

MIDDLE OF THE ROAD

I wasn’t at all impressed by Liebermann and “how far we’ve come.” Judah P Benjamin? David Levy Yulee? Phillip Phillips? Just to name a few. I realize that other parts of the country are just now catching up…

And Lieberman? I’m sorta like Mama was with Goldwater, “we finally have a half Jew running and I can’t half vote for him!” :-)

Jay, had me going on this for awhile. There’s nothing to this story of it being an accusation aimed at Huma Abedin. I didn’t know about her Islamic background and her family with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. I would question the wisdom of providing her with access to highly classified State Department information as well. The left sure knows how to blow a story miles out of proportion. Too bad McCain became their dupe but it wouldn’t be the first time.

When John McCain seens to be the Voice of reasonable intelligence, then we all know the deafening silence of the Party apperatous is being run by and like the White Citizens council of the 1950’s.

Now, on topic

This is not just an embarrassment for Georgia, this is a national disgrace, I commend Mr. McCain most highly for his quick, forceful and, yes, patriotic response to this pack of village idiots.

Good grief…

Now Obama asking for tax returns from Romney is equal to this witch hunt. And why should O have to apologize? He is not the one hiding the truth. I think Bush would like to say something similar to what Romney came up with about his last few years in office. I signed the SEC yearly audit as the owner, and man in charge, but that was not the truth I was actually busy running something else. Seems to me Romney has liability of Bain during those years and whether he is running the company or not if something kinky was going on he could be sued or worse. If he is that careless about his signature remind me why we want this man serving as our president. Also he runs his campaign like this. In the Republican primary debates he said he was not familiar with his own attack ads run by his superpac. And lets get some sound bites of Bachmann talking about Romney’s tax returns in those debates. That is the only thing that might make me change my mind, being for a moment on the same page with MB, scary stuff.

So, now we are to deny equal access and security clearances based on family shennanigans? With that in mind, just how many of us here could pass that bar? I’ve got a couple of siblings who, no doubt, are more than relieved that this is not the acceptable norm!

“hook nosed Jew”

Josef.

It’s about as funny as “magic underpants” and “planet kolob”

Which no one castigates anyone for on this blog
