Fast and Furious Deserves Better than a Slow and Genial Response


Yesterday’s House committee vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress has some commentators worried that the whole thing might lead to blowback against Republicans on Election Day. Better perhaps to stay focused on President Obama’s lousy performance on the economy. Bill Bennett is worried that Darrell Issa comes off as Oscar the Grouch.

My feeling right now is that, if America’s vacillating voter is so fragile, uninformed, and illogical that his only reaction to all of this is to be offended and vote for President Obama from spite, then we don’t need to bother with an election: we’ve grown too stupid to cohere any longer as a republic. For my money, I don’t think we need to be afraid of taking it to Obama with everything we’ve got. Lord knows we’ve got plenty.

The political analysts tell us it’s all down to independent voters, who apparently are a species as jumpy and hard to befriend as chipmunks. Any loud partisan words or edgy speculations about where the president was born will send them scurrying the safety of the Democratic ballot.

Our 2008 candidate ran under the smiley-face banner, and we all know how that turned out. John McCain, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and plenty of others, had their minds made up in 2008 that if they were seen by the public as embracing Obama’s genial and benign façade in good faith as the genuine Obama, then, even if Republicans lost the election, they’d enjoy a cooperative and mutually beneficial few years under a benign Obama presidency. Thence followed three-and-a-half years of serial backstabbing. The insistence by moderates that Republicans dare not step off the high road resulted in the current situation of the whole nation at the bottom of a very low ditch.

My definition of an independent voter is one who still hasn’t managed to figure out what side he’s on, requiring him to make up his mind every voting day based on whatever unpredictable criterion matters to him at the time. If he already needs to make a choice, I say we do all we can to make the distinctions between us and them crystal clear.

The difference on this issue can clarify that choice just as well as any other for a voter whose criteria are changing and ultimately unknowable.

Obama’s side knows this. That’s why his media friends have tried so hard to keep independents from finding out about it.

AMERICA IN CRISIS: Intelligence Briefing On The Muslim Brotherhood In America by John Guandolo


2nd :

On July 24th John Guandolo gave this intelligence briefing on the MB in Georgia. This mini-brief is four hours of a usual 3 day briefing that Guandolo used to give to law enforcement and intelligence officials. Here are Guandolos credentials.

About the Presenter -- “Counterterrorism expert and former federal agent John Guandolo graduated from the US Naval Academy in 1989, accepting a commission as an Officer in the United States Marines. He served as a combat Infantry Platoon Commander with the 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment during Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield and as a Platoon Commander, Assistant Operations Officer, and Airborne and Diving Officer in the 2nd Force Reconnaissance Company between 1991 and 1996. John resigned his commission in the Marines in 1996 and joined the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the Washington, DC Field Office. He investigated numerous cases while at the FBI, and in addition to serving as Swat Team Leader for the Washington Field Office, was one of the Bureau's Advanced Capability Medics. While working in the FBI's Counterterrorism Division, John acquired substantial knowledge and expertise in the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic Law (a.k.a. shari'ah) and teaching, and the Global Islamic Movement (GIM). His accumulated knowledge on these and related subjects earned him the FBI's "Subject Matter Expert" (SME)" designation, a role that afforded him the opportunity to design and implement the FBI's first counter-terrorism training”.

Guandolo has been giving this same presentation, since 2003, to the U.S. intelligence community, before it was ‘outlawed” by our government. He obviously knows this material inside and out. The evidence for MB infiltration into our government is epically overwhelming. Not only that, the evidences of Al Quada and Hamas infiltration are also as overwhelming.

Take for instance Aldurahman Alamoudi and Anwar Alawki. Aldurahman Alamoudi was the top advisor to Bill Clinton on Islam. Alamoudi also started over 20 MB front groups in America, our Military Muslim Chaplin Program and was instrumental in choosing textbooks on Islam in American public schools. It turns out that not only is he MB, he is also Hammas and is in prison now for plotting with Hammas to kill a Saudi Arabian Prince and providing financing to Hammas. Anwar Alawki was the top advisor to George W. Bush on 911 and was the go to guy about policy towards Islam after 911. After many months of advising the administration and even holding prayer events at the U.S. Capitol Building, it was determined that Anwar Alawki was Hammas. Years later Obama would order a drone missile strike to take Anwar Alawki out. And it is almost as bad now as it was then. COULD WE AT LEAST KEEP HAMMAS OUT OF OUR GOVERNMENT?

This briefing is also available on an 80 minute DVD entitled,,, “Understanding The Threat To America”,,, at

Here is some description text from that site. “On August 20, 2004, two Baltimore County, MD police officers spotted Selim Elbarasse and his wife videotaping the 4.3-mile-long Chesapeake Bay Bridge. When they reported the sighting to Maryland Transportation Authority (MTA) Police at the toll plaza, officers stopped Elbarasse's SUV west of the bridge. Police confiscated the camera, and afterward reported having seen the Elbarasses, who were accompanied by two children, attempting to hide the camera. The confiscated video contained close-up footage of Chesapeake Bay Bridge support structures. When officers ran a criminal background check, they discovered that Elbarasse was wanted on an outstanding material witness warrant out of Chicago in a case involving the terrorist group Hamas and Elbarasse was detained.

When agents of the FBI’s Washington, DC Field Office raided Elbarasse's Annandale, Virginia home and searched his basement, they found a hidden sub-basement containing the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America. The seized documents, which revealed a secret Muslim Brotherhood strategy to infiltrate and overthrow the United States Government and replace the Constitution with Islamic Law, were subsequently entered into evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terrorism financing case in US history. Further investigation and discovery confirmed that the Muslim Brotherhood had not only penetrated the Federal Government at the highest levels, but had been running a sophisticated influence operation from within the Federal Bureaucracy for decades. Contrary to sound reason, the Muslim Brotherhood's infiltration of government and influence in the affairs of state has not decreased, but has grown much worse since.

Understanding the Threat to America lays bare the danger posed by those who masquerade as “moderate Muslims” to gain our trust while they work secretly to overthrow of our way of life; exposes the individual actors, organizational infrastructure, and modus operandi of the "civilizational jihad;" and arms viewers with useful information and practical steps they can take to reverse the "Civilization Jihad" in America.”

The same briefing, given years ago, is also available here

After I watched both presentations of the briefing, I ordered the 80 minute DVD and sent a letter to Guandolo requesting an interview by email and for access to a brochure he mentioned and has produced called The Muslim Brotherhood Handbook.

THIS INTELLIGENCE BRIEF IS SO POWERFUL that I am also buying video editing software to take the different sections of the brief, cut them up, and upload them everywhere I can. And when I get the 80 minute DVD, I will be making it available on ALL my YouTube accounts and I will self host the video on my server if it is taken down from youtube. THE BRIEFING IS THAT GOOD AND NECESSARY.
