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.)

“Post Office Nears First Default in Its History”

This is being orchestrated by the bribepayers, ups and fedex.
When they privatize the PO, prices will Zoom! Thanx, Bush.

http://bit.ly/HeV1jz

The Truth About the US Postal Service

In 2006, the Bush White House and Congress whacked the post office with the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act — an incredible piece of ugliness requiring the agency to PRE-PAY the health care benefits not only of current employees, but also of all employees who’ll retire during the next 75 years. Yes, that includes employees who’re not yet born!

No other agency and no corporation has to do this. Worse, this ridiculous law demands that USPS fully fund this seven-decade burden by 2016. Imagine the shrieks of outrage if Congress tried to slap FedEx or other private firms with such an onerous requirement.

This politically motivated mandate is costing the Postal Service $5.5 billion a year — money taken right out of postage revenue that could be going to services. That’s the real source of the “financial crisis” squeezing America’s post offices.

In addition, due to a 40-year-old accounting error, the federal Office of Personnel Management has overcharged the post office by as much as $80 billion for payments into the Civil Service Retirement System. This means that USPS has had billions of its sales dollars erroneously diverted into the treasury. Restore the agency’s access to its own postage money, and the impending “collapse” goes away.

I literally stand in stark amazement at the naivete, the gullibility, and the absolute innocence of the American people and the representative sample who post on this blog.

The “freedom fighters,” those seeking “democracy” in all of these countries are actually paid functionaries (by the U.S., U.K., France, Israel) who actually believe that they will receive “democracy” at the end of their struggle.

Egypt stands in stark contrast to this belief. They actually believed that they would live under a democratic government if they overthrew Mubarek.

What a joke!

All of these “freedom crusades” have one purpose and one purpose only. Deposing a “dictator” (usally unfriendly to Western powers) and replacing them with a comprador who will “play ball” with the West.

If you think otherwise, your a naive, gullible, idiot.

So the nutty Fruitcakes are going after a loyal patriot of this country, Huma Abedin. And where do Bachmann and her fellow lawmakers get their nutty ideas, well of course, their nutty source is none other than the work of a group called the Center for Security Policy. Its Web site is MuslimBrotherhoodinAmerica.com. The man who runs the group is Frank Gaffney who says the Muslim Brotherhood is infiltrating every aspect of American life in order to impose Sharia law. Says it all don’t you think. Frank Gaffney, doesn’t just go after Dem’s though he is a non partisan fruitcake.
All this is about, is Bonky Bachmann just needs some more money so she goes after a person of a different race to pick on, on the democrat side of the isle, so as to get her base of nuts all stirred up so they will send her more money. Have you noticed she does this very same thing a couple times during the year, it’s what she does to bring in money for her piggy bank. Bonky Bachmann, Westmoreland and the other fruitcakes stepped on the wrong toes this time and today I think McCain put all these nutty fruitcakes in their place.

In an article in the New York Times Bachmann said that in her letters she was concerned that the state dept issued a visa and invited a terror group member into the state dept high level meeting. No one knows who invited him? “She did not mention Ms. Abedin. But she raised concerns about the State Department’s decision to grant a visa to a member of the Egyptian parliament who, despite his membership in Gamaa Islamiya, a group designated as a foreign terrorist organization, was allowed to attend high-level meetings last month with administration officials. The State Department has said it is investigating how Hani Nour Eldin was granted a visa” Look at how the Egyptains themselves are upset that the US backed the MB over other democratic groups wondering why the State would so quickly endorse the MB

how come members of terror groups are getting visas and sitting in on high level state dept meetings? How come Hillary ran to recognize the MB even when the people didn’t think the US should back a non democratic group in Egypt. they threw shoes at Clinton

Easy to see the oh-so-tolerant Leftists are here, alive & spewing their wonderous hate…Gotta love how incredibly tolerant & inclusive they are……the whole time castigating the Conservatives even tho’ few have even posted here. Truly amazing….& no wonder the AJC continues to lose readers, raises daily prices, slims down the newspaper…….Atlanta…the bastion of dogmatic Dumocrapic Party Philosophy taken to heart….learned from the past corrupt city administrations……

….but you know what………..What if ??? What if ???? Westmoreland & the others are correct !!!

….but, oh wait, I forgot…..you still believe everything the Obie Admin tells you, even in the face of obvious, apparent & overt lies……. Hook, Line, Sinker….you do the Math…..if you can…. HeHeHe

Thanks, Lynn and Michele, for protecting me and my family from the Muslim Brotherhood, zombies, Martians and The Big, Bad Wolf.

Just think Americans, We could have gotten this great statesman as President instead of our community organizer who has divided this country as none other since Lincoln. I just hope that after Nov. events do not sprial out of control as in 1860.

I agree, hariprakash, there should be no effort to engage with terrorist groups. Heck, then peace could breakout worldwide as it has in Northern Ireland, and we’d have no need to spend three-quarters of a trillion dollars annually on the military-industrial complex. Maybe we could get that down to what China spends, about ninety billion dollars. Just think, we might be able to spend some of the savings on our infrastructure,education and health care needs; and scores of Americans wouldn’t be killed and maimed in far-off lands weekly. That would just be terrible, wouldn’t it?

“Carter screwed up the first one with Iran and it’s been downhill ever since.”

CARTER??? Try Dwight D when he propped up the Shah over the democratically elected Mossadegh … the US and the UK have a long history of effing things up in the middle east – but it’s events like this that show the world that we’re not REALLY for people choosing their own governments
