Muslim Brotherhood: AZ Republic sham reporting hits new low

Putting radical Islam above national security

Okay, if you’re one of the few readers of the daily newspaper still left, you might have noticed we reconfigured its absurd editorial headline into one that better suits our tastes.

Today, the liberal newspaper has Congressman Trent Franks in its sights. It makes perfect sense.  After all, Franks is a conservative Republican, married to a woman and has no trouble getting reelected. Topping this list of egregious acts is no doubt Franks’ recent endorsement of U.S. Senate candidate Wil Cardon — a thumb-in-their-eyes action averse to the powerbrokers McCain and Kyl — who endorsed status quo Jeff Flake, in their united effort to ensure a seamless transition of a squish to fill Arizona’s U.S. Senate seat. There is justification for their concern.

The newspaper accuses Congressman Franks of trying to find “a new way to embarrass constituents,” slurring he is apparently “not content to watch legislators bring scorn upon our state.” These purveyors of yellow journalism, finding no pond too murky, even compare the Congressman to Sen. Joe McCarthy and his zeal for exposing Communist Party aficionados in the 1950s.

Franks alleged offense? He joined former Republican presidential candidate Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (maligned in the editorial as merely a “tea party” leader) in signing a letter alleging the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the highest levels of our federal government.

The guns-a-blazing posse at the newspaper allege there is no proof, and compare the intelligence to “spinning a conspiracy theory.” But from the perch high above the building in which the aptly nicknamed Repulsive now openly cohabits with Channel 12, the liberal brain trusts wittily suggest the congressional contingent refocus “to aliens in Roswell.”

“At least that one was entertaining,” the smug editorialist opines. “And it didn’t embarrass Arizona.”

The Republic uses the first Muslim in Congress, U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison* (D-Minn) as their factual substantiation. Ellison is a longtime apologist for the Muslim Brotherhood. Here is his letter .

Bachmann responded Friday with this in-depth and well-documented 16-page, 59-footnote letter to Ellison. The letter contains additional details about the June 13 allegations made by Bachmann and Reps. Trent Franks., Louie Gohmert, (R-TX), Thomas Rooney, (R-Fla.), and Lynn Westmoreland, (R-GA).

Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs has an excellent review. Of course, her conclusions are not the same as the Republic’s.  Please take time to acquaint yourself with this critical situation. You won’t get anything more than politically correct slop from the Arizona Republic.

Franks didn’t just fall off the turnip truck. Among his many assignments, the Congressman serves on the Armed Services Committee, the Judiciary Committee and chairs the Constitution Subcommittee, and is a member of the Anti-Terrorism Caucus. And popular Congresswoman Bachmann, a tax attorney and economist, is a member of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and Financial Services Committee.  They both know how to follow the money.

When members of Congress with this level of expertise look into the activities and follow leads about political Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood’s tentacles into our highest levels of government, they should be given acclaim rather than derision. That wouldn’t fit the agenda of the pompous, politically correct goons at the daily endeavor.

    Ellison is the clown who opined that American schools should be modeled on madrassas- and then backpedaled when he was taken to task, My guess is that he is a Muslim first and foremost and will do anything possible to bring Sharia law to this country.

    Interesting that the libs who are the first to cry that concerned Americans are being “Islamophobic” will be the first ones attacked if the Muslims have their way and Sharia law takes hold in America. Abortions on demand, homosexuality and alcohol/drug use will be just some of their causes that will end under Sharia law.

      Good points. Here is a story posted on, regarding how they view alcohol:

      “. . .At least three videos have emerged of what appears to be the Syrian Free Army destroying massive quantities of alcohol for religious purposes.

      The Washington Post has a reported translation of one of the clips:

      “In the name of god, in our holy book the alcohol is forbidden, and people who [are] selling alcohol are devils and we must fight them. We did seize all that liquor from people who [support] the infidel al-Assad, and in the future we will keep doing that till we clean [Syria] from all liquor.”

      In the first clip, a man holding a gun shouts “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) while one of his companions pours gasoline over countless bottles of already-flammable
      alcohol. . .”

      ———————-guess they’re just misunderstood, or maybe they misspoke. There’s always an excuse for the
      dangerous elements of society these days.

    Great line about Franks being married to a woman. That’s not part of the Republic’s agenda.

  3. PJ O'Malley says:

    I agree with your assessment.

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      PJ O’Malley,
      A note of thanks for your good editing talents. All three of your editing suggestions have been added. We even learned a new, and much more descriptive word, “averse.” All much appreciated.

      You wrote: “I don’t mention these to embarrass but in a sincere effort to help you be the best you can.”

      How much more can lifelong learners hope for? There is no embarrassment; only gratitude. Thank you for reading and the helpful suggestions.

    I’ll suggest full conspiracy theory: I am coming to the conclusion that there is an international, multi-branch attack on our country, and this is part of it. What happened in Egypt? We have a progressive congressman in Tucson who wants to put gun control in the UN’s hands. 2 days ago his conservative opponent got her facebook page slammed in an obviously coordinated attack where most of those attacking came from outside Arizona, and at least 4 internationally including Canada and Australia. These are people who commented, so its not a spam attack.

    And more, but I’ve used too much space already.

  5. Scott says:

    Let’s hope this pathetic excuse for a newspaper is put out of its misery as readership continues to fall off.

  6. CD9 says:

    I support and will vote for Wil Cardon, that being said, I am still mad as hell Trent Franks did not run for Senate. I still believe McNasty threatened and blackmailed The Congressman not to run. The political class wants McFlake to stay in office, they are not concerned with our welfare they are only intrested in their power. The Repulsive is not a Newspaper it is an arm of the Democrat Party, they wonder why circulation is down over 80%. The Repulsive’s propoganda piece on Congressman Fanks should make all conservatives proud that we see exactly why we will not vote for Jeffyboy McFlake.

  7. Doc says:

    I can’t even comment on this! My true feelings would get me booted off!

  8. Stanford says:

    For this rag of a newspaper to attempt to make mincemeat over Trent Frank’s well founded concerns tells me all I need to know, This is all part of a much larger picture having to do with his endorsement of Wil Cardon. The citizens of this country, placed at risk from Muslim militants who mean to annihilate us, be dammed.

    For shame!!

  9. Army Of One says:

    Not a chance, Doc. You are integral to the comments here. Most of us agree fully with your take on the issues.

  10. Teller Of Truth says:

    The liberal media is all over this, desperate to make the conservatives look like lunatics. They will be the Nero’s who fiddle (playing radical Dem politics) while Rome (America) burnsThey should all be ashamed, but apparently have mutated to the point where they have lost the ability to do so.

  11. Pima Pal says:

    Democrats are suffering from September 11, 2010 and Fort Hood amnesia. Facts don’t play into their agenda, so they are disregarded.

  12. Joe Evans says:

    For all of the efforts to give cover to the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrating our government, you’d think Democrats were all barren and had no children they cared about. Why else would they have no problem with the systematic implementation of Sharia law and Islam in the United States?.

    As Americans, Democrats and Republicans should rightly be joining together to fight this encroachment on our Constitutionally based freedoms and Judeo-Christian heritage.

  13. Furthermore says:

    Here’s cool John McNutcase defending against these accusations that Hillary Clinton’s top aide has behind the scenes involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood to infiltrate the top reaches of the U.S. government.
