HOUSE COMMITTEE VOTES TO REPEAL OBAMACARE DEATH PANELS...WHY SHOULD THAT HAVE BEEN IN THE BILL TO BEGIN WITH? HE WANTS TO MURDER US.
So, what does a government - one based on a Constitution, with remedies for this, do?
Well? I'm waiting for an answer. Anyone got one?
I'm not so sure. Kagan's in his pocket, so is Sotomayor and then there's the walking cadaver, Ginsburg.
What an extraordinary coincidence. The Sacred Heart System has taken over a public, non-profit hospital here in Panama City, FL and will finalize the negotiations. The contract was negotiated primarily in the dark, with provisions for 40 years and two extensions. It was not necessary to sell/lease this hospital, since there was help available because it was originally built under the Hill-Burton Act.
There were two public hearings, which was attended mostly by BMC employees. I spoke of just this thing, using Allen Keyes' newsletter which warned of the consequences and religious hospitals under Obamacare.
Of course, I was ignored. it was a done deal already.
So now this pops up today.
All of you in Bay and surrounding counties - take heed. This hospital will supply indigent care at a lower level than BMC has in the past. In three years it can be flipped for profit.
Sacred Heart knew what it was doing, no doubt.
Maybe the fat lady hasn't sung her last song.

Words have meanings that can Many devoutly religious people attended synagogue or church from an early age. Young and impressionable, when an older person tells us something with fervent conviction, and on top of that it comes from the Bible, most children take it seriously. All in all, this is certainly not a bad thing. Civilization itself depends on morality being passed along clearly from generation to generation.
have life and death implications
The first set of "rules of behavior" learned by many Jewish and Christian children are the Ten Commandments. Many of us did not know (and still do not know) that one of the key Commandments, the Sixth Commandment has been mistranslated, and inculcated into our belief systems, for centuries, and to generation after generation. Read Rabbi Bendory's detailed commentary on this critical error.
Many of us, when the red lights start flashing, will revert to our longest and most deeply held religious beliefs. Most religious people want to do right in G-d's eyes. Even when our lives (or someone else's) are in mortal danger.
The Sixth Commandment: "Thou shalt not kill?" Wrong! Go here and learn the truth

And remember, George Romney's Romneycare in Massachusetts was the model for Obamacare. Obamacare in any form must be repealed.
News Editor, Townhall
The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.
The disparity in treatment between civilian and uniformed personnel is causing a backlash within the military that could undermine recruitment and retention.
The proposed increases in health care payments by service members, which must be approved by Congress, are part of the Pentagon’s $487 billion cut in spending. It seeks to save $1.8 billion from the Tricare medical system in the fiscal 2013 budget, and $12.9 billion by 2017.
The administration is also pushing for more expensive Tricare payments for military members in order to force them onto ObamaCare, just like they are doing with private insurance plans. It's all part of the move toward single payer healthcare.
Administration officials told Congress that one goal of the increased fees is to force military retirees to reduce their involvement in Tricare and eventually opt out of the program in favor of alternatives established by the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.
And just how much more will military have to pay?
Significantly, the plan calls for increases between 30 percent to 78 percent in Tricare annual premiums for the first year. After that, the plan will impose five-year increases ranging from 94 percent to 345 percent—more than 3 times current levels.
According to congressional assessments, a retired Army colonel with a family currently paying $460 a year for health care will pay $2,048.
The military disapproves of the push:
Military personnel from several of the armed services voiced their opposition to a means-tested tier system for Tricare, prompting Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey to issue a statement Feb. 21.
Dempsey said the military is making tough choices in cutting defense spending. In addition to the $487 billion over 10 years, the Pentagon is facing automatic cuts that could push the total reductions to $1 trillion.
“I want those of you who serve and who have served to know that we’ve heard your concerns, in particular your concern about the tiered enrollment fee structure for Tricare in retirement,” Dempsey said. “You have our commitment that we will continue to review our health care system to make it as responsive, as affordable, and as equitable as possible.”
IF YOU'RE STILL UNCERTAIN ABOUT THE MEANING OF A "FALSE FLAG", THIS WILL EXPLAIN IT. THE UNDERWEAR BOMBER WAS A FALSE FLAG...
A lot of people still seem a little unclear on what a government false flag is. Who better to spell it out than a witness to the government false flag we all know as the Christmas Day Underwear Bomber? Kurt Haskell and his wife, two lawyers from Michigan, were on that flight from Amsterdam when the half-wit Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab set fire to his loins in an attempt to blow up the plane. In this interview he describes the events they witnessed before boarding the plane, on the plane, and after the plane landed in Detroit. At the sentencing hearing, Mr. Haskell was allowed to give a five minute 'victim impact statement' before the Court, to describe how the event affected him. What he had to say is disturbing. I've included the text of that statement at the bottom of the page. Video: http://www.brasschecktv.com/page/9634.html Goodman Green - Brasscheck P.S.

So why not just say NO. Loud and clear. We have to take a stand somewhere. Water is like air.
We CANNOT live without it. Who gave the order to threaten life in the USA with crap like this?
Does this sound like eugenics? It sounds like this to me. Elderly can't afford water? You die.
Family can't afford water? Kids die.
What the hell is wrong with YOU that this is so important, and you keep allowing it to happen?

In Orange County, California, it is illegal to hold regular meetings in your home. It is considered illegal to hold "a regular gathering of more than three people" on private property. That's right, on your own private property. Now, the story that reveals this is over "home bible studies", a brazen violation of the First Amendment, which guarantees free worship without government intervention. However, it would seem that this would also apply to book clubs, or theater groups, or any other type of regular meeting that 'free' people might want to hold in their own homes.

You will see a foot in a beautiful shoe, and the blister and shredded skin on the heel. It starts with the model in a pink coat and I think it is about the fourth slide in case you get lost. You can't miss it.
Anything for beauty and style.
I was looking at runway models falling off their shoes yesterday. The higher they go, the harder they fall. I think maybe the old saying, "Break a leg" might be the wrong thing to say before a model walks the runway. You can find them falling in a search. The shoes must be designed by men. They're ugly, high and dangerous.
Wasn't it yesterday and the day before I warned of this?
Put the pressure on your elected officials to force the fraud in the White House to DRILL, DRILL, DRILL!
And we allow this? Amazing.
We are all such incredibly stupid fools, aren't we?
Is she such a dolt that she doesn't understand she's being used as the beautiful face of globalist genocide and population control by the United Nations?

Well, you just sit there until someone asks you a question and I'll pull the right strings, and I'll make your mouth move, and tell you what to say.
Nobody will know.
Oh, hell, YEAH!
Obama'd have him wearing a straightjacket and getting shock therapy and a lobotomy.
What a crock of shit. Two little words to the American oil companies - GO DRILL!
Then open up the refineries full blast. Exploit every oil/natural gas well in the country on private or public land. Drill more. It's American oil and gas for Americans!
Start construction on more refineries.
No physical product.
Let everyone rot but take care of us in the United States, you cretins!
According to this video, prescription drugs kill one person every 19 minutes. According to the accompanying article, prescription drugs have now become the leading cause of addiction.

SICK BASTARD CALLS GOP GAS PRICE PLAN A BUMPER STICKER - WE SHOULD BE CONSTRUCTING REFINERIES LIKE CRAZY AND USING OUR OWN RESOURCES
You did hear that he wants us to use algae for fuel, didn't you? It's here. Use the search bar.
I'm getting itchy for someone to impeach him.
If the lunatic in the White House doesn't do something soon, he's going to bury us. And he will have accomplished his evil goal.
With gas prices too high to even get to work, the truckers will stop. So will food delivery. Did you ever think of that?
Medicine will stop.
End of America.
He can do this in the time it takes to get to the election, where he will swear himself dictator-king like Napoleon.
And he will watch us, eating Maine lobster and the best steak money can buy, from the White House, laughing his bony ass off, while we suffer.

Well, this is a government sting of huge proportions. Sort of like Ruby Ridge without the blood and the murder. However, the man's character has been assassinated.
And Eric Holder still walks! Get used to it - life in Obamaland, the land of slaves and scoundrels, dictators and the walking dead.
Let's have a laugh.
I just realize I'm able to hear normally tonight. I am listening to music for the first time since
May of last year!!!
But we heard there were messages and items that were dangerous in those Korans. Can Muslims desecrate their own Korans?
And to PUT OUR SOLDIERS ON TRIAL FOR THIS? ARE YOU KIDDING? WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT THAT?

What a revelation!
Neither did Saddam Hussein.
But the military/industrial complex must grind on with endless wars in which all participants change from good guy to bad guy to grease the machinery and the skids for the politicians and the corporations so that they can make us stupid slaves.
Read "1984". The book is on this blog - do a search. It is so heartbreaking for me to read this now (first time was in high school), and then it was science fiction. NOTHING like that could happen here. It looks like a mirror image of our future under the dictator, Obama.
He lies, but why do "we" (not us here on the creek), believe his lies?
I'm not religious, but damn - he's like the serpent in the garden.
Why do we have to get the worst of the worse for a candidate who looks like he may get the nomination?
Ron Paul is the only choice.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF BLIND, FOOTLESS CHICKEN FOR DINNER? I'M NOT SURE WHAT TO CALL THIS! AT THE MOMENT, I'M SPEECHLESS
Removing the cerebral cortex from chickens, making them blind and footless so they can be produced without pain and oblivious of crowding? What's worse than bizarre?
I need to leave the computer for a while.
Too much for me to comprehend.
GAS PRICES WILL DESTROY OBAMA - WELL, DUH! AFTER THAT ALGAE THING HE SAID YESTERDAY, HE SHOULD BE IN THE SLAMMER TODAY
But what if you're a bad catch? Like me!
Then go over to PureWow and check this out! Safer but infinitely more expensive, and I don't think most of us here have the bucks for this. But aren't they stunning?

There must be a drug in the air conditioning/heating systems on both Houses that has an effect on the brains of those we send to Washington. In about 2 weeks (or 5 minutes) after they arrive, their whole attitude changes and they are rendered useless to make a Constitutional commitment or make the right decisions.
Or maybe there's a lot of money changing hands.
Or maybe there are threats.
And maybe, they are sworn to secrecy.
But whatever it is, we need term limits. And we need to engage them angrily when they come back.
My Representative, Steve Southerland, had a town meeting in Destin and no one came. I think that's a show of no confidence. He promised us to be courageous and strong willed and became a wimp who does nothing he promised, and already the campaign to re-elect has begun.
He won't be getting my vote until he says the word IMPEACH from the House floor and mean it.
That's just how it goes.

So what do we do? Eat shit and die? Want our cars to run on what, you idiot king of the USA?
I guess he's bailing out one of his greeny friends who is in the algae growing business. The friggin' technology isn't available to us and all those jobs in the oil industry, and the product we have under the ground for centuries to come isn't being harvested. My God! This man is insane?
Have you seen any algae stations where we can fill up lately so we can get to our jobs if we're lucky enough to find or keep one?
Does he really think we're going to take this bullshit much longer?
We can't afford the gas to put in our vehicles. You're poisoning us with Monsanto GM seed, and our livestock, too (wait for more on that - There's an Alex Jones interview on crops fed to livestock). They can't digest Monsanto's GM corn, it is causing bloat to goats, sheep, cattle - anything with rumens here and overseas. There's a built in pesticide and it's killing them.
Makes me thing the dog food with corn base that we feed our dogs in sacks, cat food, too, will cause it as well.
And what about us, while you dine like royalty. Does Air Force 1 use algae?
WHEN AIR FORCE 1 USES ALGAE TO FLY, THEN MAYBE WE'LL USE IT!

As journalist, specializing in "homeland security matters", it is reasonable for people to expect you to know what you are talking about. So when Mickey McCarter went on C-SPAN and started talking about the recent conviction of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab (the Underwear Bomber) call-in audience members asked repeatedly why he didn't mention that it was our OWN GOVERNMENT that put Abdulmutallab on the plane. McCarter claims he knows nothing about that. That's not a 'conspiracy theory' folks, the FBI was forced to admit it. Watch as C-SPAN viewers school the fool...

and here: http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html/hill-burton_act_free_healthcar.html
You can organize a Hill-Burton Hospital this way:
If that's not enough, Google has endless entries that will allow you to understand the word "perpetuity" used in the organization of a Hill-Burton hospital.
Eventually, Hill-Burton evolved into the Public Services Act XVI http://www.hrsa.gov/gethealthcare/affordable/hillburton/compliance.html
There was help for BMC all along. All it would have taken was for the lazy (or corrupt) BMC board to look this up. Ditto for the BOCC lazy (or corrupt) members to read it and act, too. But when I sent it to them; when I spoke to them in public, they did not or would not listen to me. It is my opinion that the transfer of BMC to Sacred Heart was a done deal when Steve Johnson was hired out of Sacred Heart. It would take ten years of focused degradation. Employees of BMC, you should have voted for a union. But I'm betting just like the attempt to unionize more than once, your jobs were threatened if you didn't wear a smile and a big, blue button. You will see jobs evaporate, indigent care diminish and disappear, and the hospital, our jewel created from our own hands without outside interference, be flipped for Sacred Heart's profit.
There would have been NO financial distress. There are provisions for aid for hospitals like BMC. All it took was an application for financial help under the guidelines of the Public Services Act XVI.
In your haste to fast track this the Board and the BOCC forgot to factor in the coming of Obamacare or that if HHS does not relent on the issue of contraception costs, that religious hospitals, specifically the Sacred Heart system because it is Roman Catholic-run, and adheres strictly to the rules of the Catholic church, may go under.
The behind-the-scenes negotiations really were behind closed doors. The sale of BMC should have gone through a binding referendum. We paid for the hospital and you owed us that. And because of financial negligence, whoever was responsible, the Board or the administration, should be fired, but they won't be until they are replaced by Sacred Heart loyalists. Steve Johnson will ride that wave.
The BOCC has given us the airport to nowhere. None of 3,000+ jobs have materialized. We lost a carrier. We can't catch an international flight to anywhere. Pilots on the Atlanta-ECP flight fear the runway that is mushy on hot, summer days. There will be a crash someday. The drive is long and dangerous at night and it's most inconvenient. It gave us the incinerator and all its problems and a sewer line under the bay whose cement pillow band-aid fix will someday erode or meet its demise, perhaps by a storm. Its track record is lousy, and it is a poster child for term limits. One year.
I applaud everyone who spoke at meetings in opposition to the sale of BMC; Dr. Victor Ortega, the County Press who did it excellent expose', the letter writers, the ones who engaged employees in the dialog, the people who made phone calls, the senders of emails - you are the unappreciated and unknown heroes. Time will bear out your honest commentary, your questions, your research and your knowledge, but there is little joy in "I told you so", just a cold bitterness.
As jobs tank, as more homes are foreclosed, as the price of gas and everything else goes up and businesses find they can't do business with people who don't have money, a public, non-profit hospital will just be a memory. You allowed it to happen.
Didn't you realize, you jerks, that this hospital served five counties - it was literally a beating heart - one of the best 50 in the country and a cardiac care specialty hospital...and if anyone dies because of your stupidity and arrogance, the blood will be on your hands?
You don't know what something means to you until you lose it.
We will develop long memories. If we remember nothing else, we will remember this betrayal of the public trust.
The vote was 4 to 1 this morning. Gainer was the only dissenting voice. And I'm not so sure it wasn't lip service to an angry public. He has to sell cars.
If there is a way to get an injunction against this action by the BOCC, I hope some lawyer with guts will step forward and take it on so that the people who paid for this non-profit, special district hospital which provided indigent care can vote in a binding referendum. Only then will this issue be put to rest.
In every way, in every direction, in the minutiae of details, we are assaulted by this administration by the destruction of our rights.
Started to read the comments. She was handcuffed. Where was she going to go? Couldn't the deputy run after her or was he like our porky pigs (sorry to make the analogy) and so out of shape he couldn't run her down.
Tasers are lethal weapons.
That's why the public can't have them.
Alex Jones today said this crap with Iran, the Straits of Hormuz, the saber rattling in all the middle east is a ploy to destroy the US economy. Is it such an odd idea? What with the fraud in the White House giving those oil rich islands to Russia, and preventing us the use of almost a million barrels of oil from Canada a day to give it to China, and the jobs that go with it...you doubt me?
This is a false flag.
Maybe it's the end of the world, but that creep in the White House has his hands in it up to his neck in his filthy attempt to end what was America, the land of the brave and the home of the free.
Today I want you to pick up the phone and call your local oil changer. If you do it yourself, call whatever store you use and check the price of oil and filter.
What happens when you can't afford the gas to go to work, the oil for the car, the filters?
What happens when the truckers can't either?
Or the farmer?
You won't have food.
Do you know why?
The answer is sitting at this moment in the family quarters of the White House waiting for a chef and servers to feed him while the empress and the girls are skiing on your dime.
The Golden Section a.k.a. The Rule of Thirds
by Bryan Peterson - PPSOP Founder
The Golden Section refers to a mathematical calculation whose answer equals 1-2/3, or 1.66. Although there is ample evidence that the Golden Section was in use by the Egyptians, for example in the building of the Pyramids, it wasn't identified until later by ancient Greek mathematicians who, when studying the paintings of their fellow artists, began recognizing a "pattern": objects in a scene were often two-thirds as large as others, landscapes often placed the horizon line with two-thirds of the landscape below and one-third sky above (or vice-versa), and in still life's, artists seemed to favor compositions in which two-thirds of the frame was filled with the round shapes of fruit and the remaining third with the round shape of the bowl. These artists and architects had a "natural eye," an innate sense about how to create compelling and effective compositions. Thanks to the Greek mathematicians, namely Pythagoras, this compositional arrangement became known as the Golden Section, a rule stating that when any object or shape had two distinct parts, the smaller part should be 2/3 the size of the larger part.
Fibonacci's Rabbits & Engaging Photographs
In the area of composition, it is also important to note the 'Fibonacci numbers'. Fibonacci was an Italian Mathematician who was famous for his calculations on predicting how fast and how many additional rabbits would result from two breeding rabbits in ideal circumstances. I will spare you the details, but a series of numbers arose from these calculations, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610...Do you notice the 'pattern' in this series of numbers? Beginning with 3, each number that follows is a combination of the two numbers before it e.g. 1+2=3, 3+5=8, 5+8=13 and so on. As if by default, Fibonacci's numbers have a direct correlation to the Golden Section. Look at what happens when you divide each of Fibonacci's numbers by the number before it: 1/1= 1, 2/1=2, 3/2=1.5, 5/3=1.666, 8/5=1.6, 13/8=1.625, 21/13=1.61 and so on and of course you have undoubtedly noticed the calculations that resulted in a 1.6 result. And it's important to note that this 1.6 will go on forever when one divides each of the Fibonacci numbers by the number before it. Is this 1.6 result merely a coincidence?
Definitely NOT! What is perhaps most interesting about the Golden Section is that nature abounds in it. Just about every living and breathing thing in Mother Nature's closet, from flowers and ferns to the smallest microbe, is evidence of the Golden Section. Perhaps I have stumbled upon the reason WHY so many photographers are drawn to flowers; they are comprised of 'Fibonacci' numbers. Lilies and iris both have 3 petals, buttercups, columbine and pinks have 5 petals, delphinium's 8, some daisies and corn marigold have 13, aster and Black Eyed-Susan's have 21 and check this out, Michaelmas Daisies have 55 petals; again, all of which are Fibonacci numbers. And of course flowers go to seed and not surprising a poppy seed head has 13 ridges atop the seed head and upon closer inspection, the Purple Coneflower and it's 'spiraling seed head' totals 55 spirals and even the common sunflower has 89 spirals – ALL Fibonacci numbers again! And back to our friend, the Greek Mathematician Pythagoras; he may have been the first to realize that even the human skeleton was based on the Golden Section; sure enough, my upper arm bone is roughly 2/3 the length of my lower arm bone as is upper leg bone when compared to my lower leg bone.
Entire books have been written about the Golden Section, and discussing it in detail is beyond the scope of this short "how-to" article, but it is vitally important that I state emphatically that the use of the Golden Section in your compositions will more often than not lead to far more engaging and compelling photographs. The sooner you embrace it, the sooner you will start hearing compliments from complete strangers about your photographs.
To ignore the Golden Section, a.k.a. the Rule of Thirds, is to ignore the natural order of the very universe we live in. The rule of thirds "grid" really can serve you well. It can and should often serve as the foundation of a compelling image, much as a firm and solid foundation should be the basis of every house or skyscraper.
Using The Rule For Better Pix
As I drove down one of the many back roads in the Valensole Plain of Provence, my eyes caught sight of a lone tree in the distance. The first image I shot may look familiar to some of you, as it depicts what I often see from students in several of our beginner classes. The horizon line runs through the middle of the frame and the subject, the lone tree, is smack dab in the middle of the frame. But as we can see in the next image, it now "feels" better with the tree in the right third of the frame. And as we see in the next two images, it feels even better still when we place the tree on the right and the horizon line in the upper or lower third of the frame. Why? Because you are now catering to your "inner eye," the eye that instinctively knows about the Golden Section and its desire for "1/3rd-vs-2/3rd's divisions.

Co-opting the FBI
Why have we spent so much time ringing alarm bells about the Muslim Brotherhood? About its rise in the Middle East?
Why did we put together last fall a comprehensive resource package entitled “Unmasking the Enemy Among Us: Information Warfare and the Muslim Brotherhood” (available here)?
Because we have seen what’s coming, spelled out below in this must-read piece (highlights added) that recently appeared on the Investigative Project on Terrorism website. It begins with a note from Steven Emerson detailing how radical Muslim organizations have, for all practical purposes, successfully co-opted the FBI.
February 16, 2012
A note from Investigative Project on Terrorism Executive Director Steven Emerson:
Please take the time to read this very important story [below] written by a courageous Egyptian liberal intellectual about the Islamist and Muslim Brotherhood lobbies in Washington and the Obama Administration's secret collaboration with these pro-terrorist, anti-Western, anti-women, anti-American and anti-Semitic organizations. This is one of the most important articles I have read in years.
It was just revealed two days ago that FBI Director Mueller secretly met on February 8 at FBI headquarters with a coalition of groups including various Islamist and militant Arabic groups who in the past have defended Hamas and Hizballah and have also issued blatantly anti-Semitic statements. At this meeting, the FBI revealed that it had removed more than 1000 presentations and curricula on Islam from FBI offices around the country that was deemed "offensive." The FBI did not reveal what criteria was used to determine why material was considered "offensive" but knowledgeable law enforcement sources have told the IPT that it was these radical groups who made that determination. Moreover, numerous FBI agents have confirmed that from now on, FBI headquarters has banned all FBI offices from inviting any counter-terrorist specialists who are considered "anti-Islam" by Muslim Brotherhood front groups.
The February 8 FBI meeting was the culmination of a series of unpublicized directives issued in the last three months by top FBI officials to all its field offices to immediately recall and withdraw any presentation or curricula on Islam throughout the entire FBI. In fact, according to informed sources and undisclosed documents, the FBI directive was instigated by radical Muslim groups in the US who had repeatedly met with top officials of the Obama Administration to complain, among other things, that the mere usage of the term of "radical Islam" in FBI curricula was "offensive" and 'racist." And thus, directives went out by Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director Mueller to censor all such material. Included in the material destroyed or removed by the FBI and the DOJ were powerpoints and articles that defined jihad as "holy war" or presentations that portrayed the Muslim Brotherhood as an organization bent on taking over the world—a major tenant that the Muslim Brotherhood has publicly stated for decades.
During the next several months, the IPT will be releasing a series of major investigative reports revealing the secret infiltration by and collaboration with radical Islamic organizations by the Obama administration that has spread to the National Security Council, the Dept of Justice, the FBI, the Dept of Homeland Security, the CIA and the State Department as well as local law enforcement.
Islamist Lobbies' Washington War on Arab and Muslim Liberals
by Essam Abdallah
The most dramatic oppression of the region's civil societies and the Arab Spring is not by means of weapons, or in the Middle East. It is not led by Gaddafi, Mubarak, Bin Ali, Saleh, or Assad. It is led by the powerful Islamist lobbies in Washington DC. People may find my words curious if not provocative. But my arguments are sharp and well understood by many Arab and middle eastern liberals and freedom fighters. Indeed, we in the region, who are struggling for real democracy, not for the one time election type of democracy have been asking ourselves since January 2011 as the winds of Arab spring started blowing, why isn't the West in general and the United States Administration in particular clearly and forcefully supporting our civil societies and particularly the secular democrats of the region? Why were the bureaucracies in Washington and in Brussels partnering with Islamists in the region and not with their natural allies the democracy promoting political forces?
Months into the Arab Spring, we realized that the Western powers, and the Obama Administration have put their support behind the new authoritarians, those who are claiming they will be brought to power via the votes of the people. Well, it is not quite so.
The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic Nahda of Tunisia, the Justice Party of Morocco and the Islamist militias in Libya's Transitional National Council have been systematically supported by Washington at the expense of real liberal and secular forces. We saw day by day how the White House guided carefully the statements and the actions of the US and the State Department followed through to give all the chances to the Islamists and almost no chances to the secular and revolutionary youth. We will come back to detail these diplomatic and financial maneuvers which are giving victory to the fundamentalists while the seculars and progressives are going to be smashed by the forthcoming regimes.
In the US, there are interests that determine foreign policy. And there are lobbies that put pressure to get their objectives met in foreign policy. One of the most powerful lobbies in America under the Obama Administration is the Muslim Brotherhood greater lobby, which has been in action for many years. This lobby has secured many operatives inside the Administration and has been successful in directing US policy towards the Arab world. Among leading advisors sympathetic to the Ikhwan is Daliah Mogahed (Mujahid) and her associate, Georgetown Professor John Esposito. Just as shocking, there is also a pro-Iranian lobby that has been influencing US policy towards Iran and Hezbollah in the region.
One of the most important activities of the Islamist lobby in the US is the waging of political and media wars on the liberal Arabs and Middle Eastern figures and groups in America. This battlefield is among the most important in influencing Washington's policies in the Arab world. If you strike at the liberal and democratic Middle Eastern groups in Washington who are trying to gain support for civil societies in the region, you actually win a major battle. You will be able to influence the resources of the US Government to support the Islamists in the Middle East and not the weak democrats. This huge war waged by the Islamist lobbies in America started at the end of the Cold war and continued all the way till the Arab spring. The two main forces of this lobby are the Muslim Brotherhood fronts and the Iranian fronts. According to research available in the US, the Ikhwan fronts such as CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations), led by Hamas supporter Nihad Awad, as well as the Muslim Public Affairs Council, the Islamic Society of North America, and others waged their political war to block the representatives of Arab liberals and Muslim moderates from making their case to the American public. The Iranian lobby, exemplified by the National Iranian American Committee (NIAC), led by Trita Parsi, has been hitting at Iranian exiles.
Since the 1990s CAIR and its allies have attacked Copts, Southern Sudanese, Lebanese, Syrian reformers, Assyrians and Chaldeans, and Muslim dissidents in the United States. The Ikhwan of America demonized any publication, book, article, or interview in the national media or local press raising the issue of secular freedoms in the Middle East. The Islamists wanted to eliminate the liberal cause in the Arab world and replace it with the cause of the Islamists. What is also shocking is that CAIR and its allies stood by the oppressive regimes and visited them, claiming they speak on behalf of the peoples. CAIR and the Brotherhood fronts in America destroyed systematically every project that would have defended the seculars and liberals originating from the Middle East. The notorious and well-funded Islamists of the US allowed no book, documentary, or show on the liberals in Arab civil societies to see the light.
Thanks to this powerful lobbying campaign, the American public was not given a chance to learn about the deep feelings on the youth in the region. Americans were led to believe that all Muslims, all Arabs and all Middle Easterners were a strange species of humans who cannot appreciate freedom. Instead, the American Islamists, helped by apologists on the petrodollars payrolls, convinced the mainstream media that the Arab world has authoritarians and Islamists only.
Dr Shawki Karas, president of the American Coptic Association, told me in the late 1990s how he was harassed by Islamist activists for speaking up against the Mubarak regime and the Muslim Brotherhood in America. He was threatened with losing his job at the college where he taught. Reverend Keith Roderick, who has assembled a coalition of more than 50 group rights from the Muslim world, was severely attacked by the Islamists and was threatened to be removed from his church position. Muslim American leaders who are conservative and secular, such as Dr Zuhdi Jasser, were crucified by CAIR and the Brotherhood for daring to challenge the Party line of the Islamists in America and claiming that the Jihadists are the problem in the region. Muslim liberal dissidents such as Somali Ayan Hirsi Ali, Saudi Ali al Yammi, Syrian Farid Ghadri, Iranian Manda Ervin, and many others were trashed by the Islamist lobbies to block them from defending the causes of secular liberty in the US. Egyptian liberals as well as seculars and democracy activists from Iraq, Sudan, Syria, and other countries have been attacked by CAIR and allies. The pro-Iranian lobby targeted most Iranian-American groups and tried to discredit them, particularly with the rise of the Green Revolution in Iran. By smearing the Muslim liberal exiles, the Islamists were trying to destroy their causes in the mother countries. In the 1990s and the years that followed 9/11 the region's dictators supported the efforts by Islamist lobbies to crush the liberal exiles. The Mubarak, Bashir, Gaddafi, Assad, and Khomeinist regimes fully supported the so-called Islamophobia campaign waged by CAIR and its Iranian counterpart NIAC against dissidents for calling for secular democracy in the region. The dissidents were accused of being pro-Western by both the Islamists and the dictators.
The Islamist lobbies also severely attacked members of the US Congress such as Democrats Tom Lantos, who has since passed away, Eliot Engel, Howard Berman, Gary Ackerman, and Joe Lieberman as well as Republicans Frank Wolfe, Chris Smith, Trent Franks, John McCain, Rick Santorum, and Sam Brownback for their efforts in passing legislative acts in support for democracy and liberty in the Middle East. CAIR and NIAC heavily savaged President Bush's speeches on Freedom Forward in the Middle East, deploying all the resources they had to block US support to liberal democrats in the region. Islamist lobbies in Washington are directly responsible for killing any initiative in the US Government to support Darfur, southern Sudan, Lebanon, the Kurds, liberal women in the Muslim world, and true democrats in the Arab world and Muslim Africa.
In the think tank world, CAIR and its allies aggressively attacked scholars who raised the issue of persecution against seculars or minorities in the Arab world and Iran. Among those attacked were Nina Shea and Paul Marshal from the Hudson Institute and the founder of an anti-slavery group, Dr Charles Jacobs, who was exposing the Sudan regime for its atrocities. Last but not least is the Islamists' relentless campaign to stirke at top scholars who advise Government and appear in the media to push for democratic liberation in the region. The vast and vicious attacks leveled against Professor Walid Phares—initially by CAIR's Nihad Awad and then widened by pro-Hezbollah and Muslim Brotherhood operatives online—has revealed to Arab and Middle Eastern liberal and seculars how ferocious is the battle for the Middle East in the US. Phares's books, particularly the latest one, The Coming Revolution: Struggle for Freedom in the Middle East (2010), hit the Islamist agenda hard by predicting the civil society revolts in the Middle East and then predicting how the Islamists would try to control them. Phares was attacked by an army of Jihadist militia online like no author since Samuel Huntington in the 1990s. As a freedom activist from the Middle East, Mustafa Geha, wrote, Phares is a hero to Muslim liberals. Along with dissidents, lawmakers, experts, and human rights activists, Phares is a force driving for a strategic change in US foreign policy towards supporting secular democracies in the region. This explains why the Islamists of America are fighting the battle for the forthcoming regimes with all the means they have.
