Center President Frank Gaffney joined Janet Mefford to discuss the controversy over letters sent by Michelle Bachmann and 4 other congressmen requesting proper executive branch oversight for proper background checks and Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of government institutions. This proves it:

Muslim Brotherhood in America: Parts 1-3

Parts 4 through 6 Web Series w/ Bonus…

Parts 7 through 10 (Part 8: Team Obama & the Islamists) (Part 9: The Islamist Agenda)

On Secure Freedom Radio with Frank Gaffney, Ambassador John Bolton weighed in on Michelle Bachmann’s request to the IGs concerning security clearance procedures. No characterization has been made by members of Congress on the character or loyalty of Hilary Clinton’s chief of staff, Huma Abedin. Rather, it is the normally uncontroversial and apparently flawed security clearance process at issue that is addressed by the Ambassador on today’s show.

From April:

This is not your run-of-the-mill crime of passion. It was a carefully planned, heavily funded and technically advanced attack. Who might be behind all this? The FBI,of course,which has a long history of setting up and staging similar attacks,then stopping them right before they happen.

But all these dramas were facilitated by the F.B.I., whose undercover agents and informers posed as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training. Suspects naïvely played their parts until they were arrested.

I begin where I normally end. With links to show how the government does in fact have their hands in everything that happens.

See four documented stories on these facts:

* NYT openly admits domestic terror plots masterminded by the FBI

* FBI ‘entrapment’ tactics

* FBI intercepts its own terrorist plot against US Capitol, Pentagon

* FBI nabs five mastermind geniuses after teaching them how to blow up a bridge in Cleveland

As you soak all this in,remember that the FBI had admitted to setting up terror plots,providing the weapons and gear,staging the location of the bombings,and even driving the vehicles to pull it off! This is not a conspiracy theory;it’s been admitted by the FBI right out in the open. Even the New York Times openly reports all this in stories like this one:

Inside the CO shooters apt was “device that emits a shock wave and water”.

Was Colorado Shooting Staged By The Government?

And the FBI is certainly not alone:

* DoD Contractors of Private Security Outside US

* DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY “PWN PLUGS”

* DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE Dosage-Based Probation

* UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS Drones in National Airspace and Role of DHS

Editor’s note: Most of the tactics described below are now being implemented and used in the United States against the American people.

A MUST Read Manual: U.S. Counterinsurgency Manual Leaked, Calls for False Flag Operations, Suspension of Human Rights

Wikileaks has released a sensitive 219 page US military counterinsurgency manual. The manual, Foreign Internal Defense Tactics Techniques and Procedures for Special Forces (1994, 2004), may be critically described as “what we learned about running death squads and propping up corrupt government in Latin America and how to apply it to other places”. Its contents are both history defining for Latin America and, given the continued role of US Special Forces in the suppression of insurgencies, including in Iraq and Afghanistan, history making.

The leaked manual, which has been verified with military sources, is the official US Special Forces doctrine for Foreign Internal Defense or FID.

A good Offense…So here is a little thing to protect yourself and Side-Step Snoops with These 9 Counter-Surveillance Tools :

There are a whole lot more new ways to spy on a private citizen today than there were a decade ago. And, interestingly enough, there are new counter-surveillance measures that the market has provided as well.

No, I’m not recommending that you actually buy or implement all of the privacy-enhancing options below. But I think it’s more than worth your time to know a bit about them – if for no other reason than to better understand how unscrupulous persons and interests are determined to pry into the lives of others.

Nine Tools To Help You Lose a Surveillance Tail

1. Video Bug Detector

Compact surveillance technology makes it easy to hide a video camera in almost anything: a public bathroom ceiling fan, decoy Coke can, teddy bears, key chain, you name it. If it fits, it records.
Numerous wireless video bug detectors exist on the market. On the low end, a device alerts you that a hidden video camera is near you. On the high-end, equipment pinpoints the exact location of the offending video cameras.

2. Laser-Based Video Camera Finder

These are typically small handheld devices that fit in a pocket or purse. They send out a laser while you look through the special viewfinder. If the laser detects a hidden video camera lens (even less than 1 mm in size), the lens “glows” through the viewfinder, like cat eyes glowing in car headlights. These detectors are especially useful for locating cameras at a further distance or cameras that may not be transmitting wirelessly (not sending an RF signal), but instead are recording to an internal DVR.

3. GPS Monitor Detector

Some GPS monitors send a constant signal and are able to track you on a real-time basis. It has become an ideal weapon of choice for home-invasion specialists. They merely tag the victims’ car and learn their driving habits, as well as arrival and departure times from home and work. Others send periodic signals, perhaps every five or ten minutes, and track your relative position within a window of time and document a record of your whereabouts. Although some detectors are sensitive enough to find a GPS bug even when it’s turned off, it’s best to allow some time for the GPS detector to work by waiting for a potential signal to leave a hidden GPS tracker.

**Note: GPS Jammers or anti-GPS unit disrupt the GPS signal returning to the satellite. They are illegal in the U.S., even though you can find and probably buy one online from overseas.

4. Microphone, Wire, Audio Bug Detectors

Microphones can also be shrunk down to size and hidden in almost any place. Someone wanting to record your conversation could conceal a microphone inside a pen or necklace pendant, for instance.
The bug could be transmitting wirelessly in real time, or recording on an internal memory to be picked up and analyzed later. Audio bug surveillance detectors are an effective countermeasure, picking up RF signals coming out of wireless microphones. However, since RF signals are sent by many types of equipment such as cell phones, cordless phones, microwaves, and Bluetooth appliances, it’s common to get false positives. In any case, Technical Surveillance Counter Measures (TSCM) professionals say RF bugs need to have a direct line of sight to work properly. So sweeping a room or office with a audio bug surveillance detector does work.

5. White-Noise Emitter

If detection isn’t enough, you may prefer to “ruin” audio recordings by transmitting white noise and ambient sounds that interfere with eavesdroppers and don’t allow them to accurately capture what is being said. This counter-surveillance tool is also helpful against laser eavesdroppers, which beam a laser at a window in the room you are in, and can listen to your conversation by measuring the vibrations of the glass. This may sound novel for now, but we’ve seen many examples of once-innovative technology becoming totally commonplace. Creating white noise can defeat this surveillance.

6. Audio Jammers

According to Brickhouse Security, “Audio jammers generate a random masking sound that desensitizes microphones in the area, rendering them completely unable to record. Audio jammers are effective against any wiretapping device with a microphone as a major component, including tape recorders, RF transmitters, hardwired microphones, and shotgun microphones.”

7. Compromised Cell-Phone Jammers

This surveillance technology is simply a microphone jammer tailor-made for the mic on your cell phone. Once activated, hackers have less control over your phone and can’t use it as a recording device.

8. Phone Wiretap Detector

The counter-surveillance technology available to you today is sophisticated. You can buy equipment that analyzes your analog phone lines and detects wiretaps in the phone, the phone jack, outside on the pole, and even in the transformer box!

9. Order a Professional Sweep

Finally, if you have greater needs or dealing with sensitive information, numerous contractors exist who will complete a professional sweep of your home or business.
You can find a local company online by typing in “Technical Surveillance Counter Measures,” “TSCM,” or “counter surveillance” and your city.

Along with these physical surveillance suggestions, remember to have your computer’s counter surveillance tools in good working order, too: firewalls, virus protection, encryption, strong passwords, VPN or proxy server, etc. Using some or all of these security measures will give you a higher level of privacy, anonymity, peace of mind, and freedom compared to the general population.

Mohamed al-Zawahiri, brother of Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, has said that the 572 military detainees pardoned by President Mohamed Morsy on Thursday included 25 leaders of Islamic Jihad and Jama’a al-Islamiya.

He said the decree did not pardon those involved in cases dating back to 1994 that involve the activities of militants who fought the government of ousted President Hosni Mubarak in an insurgency in the early 1990s.

Morsy had announced that, to mark the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, he was pardoning 572 military prisoners who were detained in connection with the 25 January revolution or protests during the transitional period.

The decision included some Jama’a al-Islamiya and Jihad leaders who had been sentenced to death, including Hassan Khalifa, Ahmed Abdel Kader, Shaaban Howaidy and Gharib al-Shahat. Pardoned prisoners Saber Salama and Shawky Salama had been sentenced to 25 years in jail.

Zawahiri called on Morsy to issue another decision to pardon 15 more political prisoners.

Jama’a al-Islamiya engaged in armed confrontations with security forces in the 1990s, aiming to depose the Mubarak regime and establish an Islamic state. In the late 1990s it renounced its violent, jihadist ideology, and apologized for its attacks that had killed hundreds. Its members were targeted by the intelligence services, but since the 25 January uprising many have been released from prison and it now has a political arm, the Construction and Development Party.

President Obama’s signature health-care initiative will cost a bit less than expected thanks to last month’s Supreme Court ruling, but the court’s decision is also likely to leave millions of poor people without access to health insurance, congressional budget analysts said Tuesday.

Factoring in other changes, the total cost of the coverage expansion would be $1.168 trillion, the CBO said, compared with an original estimate of $1.252 trillion — a net reduction of $84 billion.

In updating their estimates, the CBO analysts did not attempt to predict how each state would respond to the court ruling. Instead, the report said, they “have projected the approximate shares of the affected population residing in states that will fall into different broad categories — ranging from no expansion to an expansion encompassing the income threshold established by the ACA.”

BUT JUST in June WP reported this:

Did the Supreme Court just make the Affordable Care Act much less affordable? Fudging Numbers again?

When the White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked how the U.S. might respond if Egyptian officials could no longer guarantee safe passage for the tens of thousands of ships that pass through the canal each year – he responded by saying that “I’m not going to get into a series of hypotheticals,”.

The recent unprecedented move by the new Islamic administration of Egypt to allow free entry for Palestinians into the country and the easing of long-imposed travel restrictions, particularly on Gazans, has made the above “hypothetical” very close to be a “reality”.

The new decision appeared to be a gesture to the Palestinians after separate meetings last week between Egypt’s new president, Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and the leader of Hamas, Khaled Mashaal, whose group controls Gaza.

After years of controlling and securing the Gaza borders by the Egyptian Military to prevent Hamas from entering Sinai, the new decision will allow militants from Hamas to have free access to the Sinai Peninsula and thus come close to one of the most vital lines of communication of the world, namely, the Suez Canal.

In facts, Jihadists from Hamas can enter Egypt and receive smuggled weapons later on when they are already in the country.

According to Marvin Kalb, a senior fellow at the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy, “The control of the Suez Canal is central, and it’s been central now for 100 years. Why? Not only commerce from Europe to the rest of the world, but oil coming around from the Arabian Peninsula.”

A single attack on the Suez canal can threaten US and world Interests.If the Suez Canal were to close, oil tankers would be forced to sail around southern Africa — adding some 6,000 miles to the journey. This can significantly increase oil prices in the US and thus aggravate the already existing economic recession.

Allowing members of the Hamas organization to freely enter Sinai will simply allow a terrorist group to threaten one of the vital interests of the US.

What made things more complicated is the current lack of security in several parts of Sinai after the Jan 25 Revolution.

Additionally, the intimate relationship between Iran and Hamas means that the above decision will allow the Iranians to have their Hamas allies to come closer to the Suez Canal. In such a case, Iran will not only be able to threaten oil transport at The Strait of Hormuz, but it can also threaten -via its Hamas arm- the Suez Canal as well.

The Strait of Hormuz (red arrow) connects the Arabian Sea and Persian Gulf

Allowing free passage to Palestinians to enter Sinai from Gaza is one of the first decisions of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) leading the new Egyptian administration. It does not need a rocket scientist to figure out that the MB interests will inevitably contradict the US interests in the Middle East. The recent decision of the Islamist administration is just the beginning.

The MB inspired decision and its implications also expose the importance that the US must not side with the MB in any way at the expense of risking its deep and tested relationship with the Egyptian Military. The US should not wait to see the Suez Canal attacked by terrorists of Hamas as this can have very serious and dire consequences upon us. Immediate decisions must be taken to ensure that Iran will not be able -via its Hamas ally- to control the Suez Canal.

Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, on Monday said the White House appears to be responsible for leaking classified national security information.

‘‘I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks,’’ Feinstein said at a World Affairs Council forum, according to the Associated Press (AP).

Pat Caddell joined Stephen K. Bannon on the “Victory Sessions” and told him that National Security Advisor Tom Donilon is likely the source of recent intelligence leaks that have prompted calls for an investigation by Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein. Caddell explains that he is certain Donilon is the source of the leaks because of his background as a political operative and a known “leaker”. The full interview is included in this clip. Caddell names Tom Donilon at the 8:40 mark.

Many universities around the nation implement their own student speech codes. (AP)

If you thought college was a place for young people to speak out, challenges one another’s deeply-held beliefs and grow intellectually, chances are you’ve never been to Indiana University Southeast.

The school, located just 10 miles north of Louisville, Ky., is the latest college to see its speech code come under fire from a group that advocates freedom of speech on campuses. One stipulation in the code requires that students may only “express opinions” within a free speech zone, which is antithetical to what a college should stand for, according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), an advocacy organization which defends the free speech and due process rights of college students.

“You’re teaching [college students] that they’re not equipped to live in a free society.”

- Robert Shibley, Senior Vice President for the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education

“It’s the price you pay for living in a free society,” Robert Shibley, Senior Vice President of FIRE, told FoxNews.com.“The entire enterprise of a university is to express scholarly thoughts and opinions…restraints on that are impossible.”

~ WHERE is the Outrage and why are these students not protesting?

The university also said that it has never had any complaints about the policy since its implementation in 2004, and it welcomes the FIRE’s feedback.

The broad regulation probably doesn’t even state what its clumsy crafters meant it to say, said Samantha Harris, FIRE director of speech code research.

“IUS almost certainly doesn’t mean this–if you want to tell your friend that you think it’s hot outside, you have to go to the zone to do it…it’s an indicator of just how poorly written and unconstitutional this policy is,” she said.

IUS’s code also requires university approval for acts of ‘expressed opinions’ by submitting an application at least five days in advance.

It’s not just Indiana University Southeast. Colorado College, in Colorado Springs, prohibits “any act of ridicule…or embarrassment,” and Northeastern University, in Boston, prohibits the use of university computer resources to “transmit or make accessible material, which in the sole judgment of the University is offensive.”

“This gives the university carte blanche to censor any electronic communication of which it disapproves,” Shibley noted. “You’re teaching [college students] that they’re not equipped to live in a free society.”

FIRE’s second annual “Guide to Free Speech” contains legal information on speech codes and online harassment policies, which it claims are becoming more ubiquitous and restrictive than ever.

First published in 2005, FIRE’s Guide to Free Speech on Campus has been distributed to more than 138,000 students, faculty members, alumni, administrators, and citizens across the country as a tool to fight censorship on campus. The new second edition of the Guide has been fully updated for today’s students, paying special attention to student expression in the Facebook era and providing readers with fresh examples from FIRE’s case archives, important updates from state and federal case law, and incisive analysis.

~ We already know Hillary’s affection to terrorists. It was proven in the FALN Commutation of 1999 by her husband. Bill Clinton offered clemency to sixteen of the convicted militants under the condition that they renounce any kind of violent manifestation.

Bill Clinton’s pardon of 16 terrorists in order to benefit his wife, Hillary Clinton, run for the Senate in New York.

Tissue Alert!

by ANDREW C. MCCARTHY

Der Spiegel pointed out the obvious: “A certain role of the Muslim Brotherhood in the transition process [to ‘democracy'] in Egypt seems acceptable to the Obama White House.” It was early February 2011, the moment when the uprising that would oust Hosni Mubarak was bubbling over in Tahrir Square. The prominent German newsmagazine figured, who better to ask about the Muslim Brotherhood than the American political establishment’s resident foreign-policy genius, John McCain?

So, the reporter asked him, does Obama’s tolerance of the Muslim Brotherhood “concern you”?

Senator Maverick shot back without hesitation: “It concerns me so much that I am unalterably opposed to it. I think it would be a mistake of historic proportions.”

Senator McCain elaborated that he was “deeply, deeply concerned that this whole movement [toward democracy] could be hijacked by radical Islamic extremists.” And what, he was specifically asked, “is your assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood”? McCain pulled no punches:

I think they are a radical group that, first of all, supports sharia law; that in itself is anti-democratic – at least as far as women are concerned. They have been involved with other terrorist organizations and I believe that they should be specifically excluded from any tra nsition government.

In fact, so apprehensive was he over the Brotherhood and its sharia agenda that McCain was quick to brand Mohamed ElBaradei, the Nobel laureate, as a Brotherhood tool. Many of us watching developments at the time noted the apparent collusion between ElBaradei and the Brothers. McCain went farther: “Oh yeah, I think it’s very clear that the scenario is very likely he could be their front man.”

~ Snippet:

Since Mrs. Clinton has been secretary of state, with Ms. Abedin as one of her top advisers, the State Department has strongly supported abandoning the federal government’s prior policy against dealing with the Muslim Brotherhood. State, furthermore, has embraced a number of Muslim Brotherhood positions that undermine both American constitutional rights and our alliance with Israel. To name just a few manifestations of this policy sea change:

The State Department has an emissary in Egypt who trains operatives of the Brotherhood and other Islamist organizations in democracy procedures.

The State Department announced that the Obama administration would be “satisfied” with the election of a Muslim Brotherhood-dominated government in Egypt.

Secretary Clinton personally intervened to reverse a Bush-administration ruling that barred Tariq Ramadan, grandson of the Brotherhood’s founder and son of one of its most influential early leaders, from entering the United States.

In order to dismiss Bachmann’s concerns, we have to ignore three huge problems:

1. Abedin’s mother is not only a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, but also sits on the Guidance Board of the organization. This makes her not only a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s female auxiliary, but also a prestigious member.

2. Another member of the Muslim Sisterhood’s Guidance Bureau is Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi’s wife, which means Abedin’s mother and the wife of an renowned Muslim Brotherhood member are in regular and frequent contact.

3. Lastly, Abedin’s brother, Hassan Abedin, has allegedly collaborated with Omar Naseef and Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, two of the most influential terror supporters in the world.

In light of these things, might Bachmann’s concerns have logic, basis, and merit?
