Pelosi’s provocative app’t to House Intelligence

Although Democrats are defending House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s oddly timed appointment of U.S. Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) to the House’s Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), others have expressed concerns about naming the congressman with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood to this committee charged with oversight of the United States Intelligence Community —- including intelligence related activities of 17 elements of the US Government, and the Military Intelligence Program.

HPSCI’s subcommittees deal with Technical and Tactical Intelligence, Terrorism. Human Intelligence, Analysis, and Counterintelligence—- including the Muslim Brotherhood.

This 6-page opening statement going back to April 13, 2011, illustrates the concerns even at that time. Now retired U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC) said, “We have heard the full spectrum of views on, and approaches to interaction with, the Brotherhood from various government officials. This inconsistency makes me feel like our government is playing checkers while the Muslim Brotherhood is playing chess.”

Robert Spencer, writing for FrontPage Mag provides important background on Rep. Andre Carson’s appointment. Take time to read his well researched report.

Carson, raised as a Baptist and educated in a Catholic school, converted to Islam as an adult. He has attracted attention for his public statements, including when he was guest speaker at the 2012 Islamic Circle of North America/Muslim American Society convention where he said American schools should be modeled on madrassas —- Islamic schools noted for their penchant to promote repressive, anti-Westernized culture and hatred toward Christians and Jews —- “where the foundation is the Qur’an.”  Both sponsoring groups have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Moments later, according to this report in the UK’s Daily Mail, Carson, a former police officer, warned undercover law enforcement he suspected of being at the event looking for “secret meetings” that “Allah will not allow you to stop us.”

He has a history of making wild and unsubstantiated statements. On August 28, 2011, Carson referred to the Tea Party movement using these words: “This is the effort that we’re seeing of Jim Crow. Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now of this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me… hanging on a tree.” Despite calls to resign, Carson said, “I stand on the truth of what I spoke.”

Good going, Ms. Pelosi.

    How foolish are we? Why would someone with MB ties ever be put in this sensitive national security position? Liberals worshipping at the altar of political correctness will be our undoing. You’d think they have no families of their own whose futures and security they’re concerned about. This is not a game. We know all too well it’s deadly serious business.

  2. Frankly Speaking says:

    Can you imagine if a Republican had made such a reckless appointment at a time when acts of Islamic-related terrorism are daily headlines? Given the attacks, beheadings and merciless killings of innocents going about their daily lives, while their murderers yell praise to Allah, this is an intentionally confrontational appointment that should never have been made. Besides which, Andre Carson’s Muslim Brotherhood ties should raise red flags to Democrats and Republicans alike.

    Excellent and informative post,SRAZ.
    Check this out from Frank Gaffney’s well-respected Center for Security Policy. The article is titled, “U.S. Muslim Brotherhood Political Party Financially Supports Congressman André Carson.”

    The Dems in general, and Pelosi in particular, are sticking a finger in America’s eye. This appointment is being made as the world is still trying to digest the Islamic terrorist’s massacre of journalists and Jewish grocery shoppers preparing for the Sabbath in Paris. The satirical publication’s journalists and cartoonist were executed solely for publishing a cartoon depicting Muhammad. When the offensive “Piss Christ,” showing a depiction of Jesus Christ immersed in a vat of urine (sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts) was displayed in museums, I missed the news of massacres by Christians. Islam is not a religion of peace. In fact by no authentic standards is it even a religion.

    Liberals are willing to put us all at risk in order to put their leftist lunacy on display.

    Nope SRA people, this has nothing to do with “political correctness” unless you recognize that as the Marxist euphemism for “revolution.” Communists have openly declared that islam is their Petri dish for revolution. A Petri dish is a sterile dish where bacteria, molds and other bad things are grown in a laboratory.

    The Marxists in our government know they have to destroy US to transform US, and with the Muslim-in-Chief in the White Mosque they have the perfect opportunity. They are making the most of it with open borders, AMNESTY for all, muslim colonies in America
    and muslim jihadis throughout our government. Obamao, Holder, Napolitano & Johnson, Hagel and all of the czars have been imbedding jihadis in the highest levels of our government for six years, and a complicit Congress (read Pelosi & McTraitor & AZ5 & friends) attack the brave representatives who try to expose it. And the sheeple refuse to see it, or have been blinded by complacency.

    Do you think the majority in this Intelligence Committee will refuse to seat this muslim destroyer? I don’t think we’ll see it. They’ve already performed the spine-ectomies on the new class, and the old eunuchs don’t even look around anymore. And the sheeple are beaten into submission. Welcome to slavery for your kids and grandkids.

    God bless America.

      PS: The Muslim Students Association is a muslim brotherhood front group, being set up on every college campus in America for ?- jihad. It is being set up by a corrupt student visa program and a hearty support for anchor baby citizenship. And the sheeple sleep, or are afraid to speak.

    Don’t forget. All these attacks combined are not equal to Timothy McVeigh’s one attack in Oklahoma City.
