Wait Till You See What Obama’s Islam-Celebrating WH Guests Said About Israel And Netanyahu

It’s a familiar saying: “You are judged by the company you keep.” For those who believe in the truth of that axiom, President Obama might well have opened himself up to more than a little harsh judgment, given the Muslim Americans he invited to sit with him at the president’s table during this week’s special dinner in celebration of Ramadan.

Iftar is one of the religious events of Ramadan, an annual observance by Muslims worldwide to commemorate what they believe was Allah’s revelation of the Quran to Muhammad. At the seventh Iftar dinner President Obama has hosted at the White House, he invited a number of special guests to eat with him at the head table. Among those guests, reports Breitbart News, were “two radical anti-Israel activists” who have “publicly stated they consider Israel and its leadership to be sponsors of terroristic acts.”

During his remarks at the Iftar event in the East Room of the White House, Obama told the gathering: “We are all one family.” The Breitbart post points out that a couple of members of that “family” who were seated in positions of honor have made or endorsed provocative and inflammatory statements about Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Riham Osman, seated at the “President’s Table” [Monday] night, is the communications coordinator for the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), a group founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood that has challenged the U.S. designation of Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups.

Oslam herself has engaged in toxic rhetoric when it comes to the state of Israel.

In March, she described Israel and its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as sponsors of terrorism.

In an earlier social media post attributed to her, Osman referred to Netanyahu as “the devil.”

Another of the dinner attendees invited to sit with Obama at the Islam-focused event, according to the White House invitation, was Batoul Abuharb. She has revealed herself to be a “fierce opponent of Israel,” according to the Breitbart article.

In an article she wrote, Abuharb “lays blame on the [Israeli] ‘occupation’ for the problems in Gaza, not once [mentioning] the existence of Hamas, the militant jihadist group that rules the strip.”

Also in his remarks to the Muslim audience, according to coverage in The Washington Post, the president said the Iftar dinner is a “‘reminder of the freedoms that bind us together as Americans, including the freedom of religion — that inviolable right to practice our faiths freely.’”

Given the reported feelings and fanatical anti-Israel comments of two of his dinner guests, one would suppose that the president gave a pass to that pair of celebrants when it came to their sentiments about those who practice the Jewish faith in their Middle East homeland and try to preserve its sovereignty.

Ret. General Drops Bombshell: Obama Should Be Arrested For This ‘Treasonous Activity’

Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Paul E. Vallely stated recently during a radio interview that President Obama should be “arrested for treasonous activities.”

Vallely, while a guest on the Real Side radio program earlier this month, stated above anything else that Obama should be held accountable for his sympathies for the Muslim Brotherhood in particular and his actions regarding the Benghazi tragedy. The retired general said one group that should hold the president’s feet to the fire are high-ranking members of the military.

The program’s host, Joe Messina, asked whether Obama would just replace those military leaders with others who agree with him, as he has done several times in the past.

Vallely responded: “Well then we arrest him for treasonous activities.” He noted that the group he helps lead, the Citizens Commission on Benghazi, counts at least fourteen different actions the president has taken that could be considered treasonous.

The general listed bringing the Muslim Brotherhood into the White House, supporting the Muslim Brotherhood against President el-Sisi in Egypt, supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya, and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood’s operations in Syria among the acts amounting to treason.

Vallely believes Obama has taken these actions because he has an agenda. “We know he’s a radical Islamic sympathizer. He sympathizes with the Muslim Brotherhood,” he said.

He noted the Middle East is in disarray because of the policies of the administration. “Baghdad is under complete threat.” Further, Vallely pointed out that Major General Qasem Soleimani, from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, is “going to fly in, from what we hear, 8-15 thousand Iranian troops in to bolster Assad in Damascus and save that regime.” Newsweek reported on this move by Iran earlier this month.

Vallely also took Obama to task for stating a few weeks ago that he is waiting on the Pentagon to give him strategic plans to defeat ISIS. Obama’s remarks also prompted a military official to respond: “What the f— was that? We have given him lots of options, he just hasn’t acted on them,” as reported by Fox News.

Vallely was not surprised at this response. The DOD is always working on multiple operational plans to address threats to the United States, he said. The problem is Obama “has no heart. He is a loser. I think he’s a coward, and he does not want to engage.”

Vallely believes it is up to Congress to “shut down” the president on multiple fronts using the power of the purse, among other tools.

“I’m tired of the deceit, the lies, the deception of this administration,” Vallely told Real Side.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) released a report last year listing the Benghazi cover-up and continued aid to Egypt following a military coup among the 76 “lawless acts” for which the Obama administration needed to be held accountable. (The coup took out Muslim Brotherhood-backed Mohammed Morsi, but Cruz highlighted that the aid continued without congressional authorization and contrary to federal law.)

Obama’s Dirty Secret Is Out: Leaked Document Shows Top-Level Support For America’s Enemies

It’s a well-established ploy practiced by conniving liberal strategists — point to or present an extreme position or ultra-left candidate in order to make a “moderate” position or “slightly left” individual seem acceptable by comparison. In other words, propose a policy that’s way out in left field, then agree to “compromise” on one that’s not so radical but still moves the political agenda or course of history in a distinctly leftward direction.

Given a new report by Bill Gertz in The Washington Times, it appears that sort of tried and true progressive ploy is in full play with the Obama administration’s continuing support of the Muslim Brotherhood. Gertz pulls back the curtain on President Obama’s backing of the Brotherhood as outlined in a “secret directive” called PSD-11:

President Obama and his administration continue to support the global Islamist militant group known [as] the Muslim Brotherhood. A White House strategy document regards the group as a moderate alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State.

The secret document was leaked to the Times, as efforts to use the Freedom of Information Act to pry it loose have reportedly been unsuccessful.

The White House-favored Muslim Brotherhood has been classified as a terrorist organization by several Middle Eastern nations, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). “The UAE government also has labeled two U.S. affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim American Society, as terrorist support groups,” says the Times article.

And as WND just reported, CAIR has once again been “slapped down” by a federal judge in Michigan because the Muslim Brotherhood front group engaged in what’s come to be known as lawfare: “…the use of legal maneuvers to threaten, intimidate or overwhelm critics of an Islamic agenda…” This particular case that saw CAIR sanctioned by the court had to do with the construction of a mosque.

Barack Obama’s outreach to, and support of, the Muslim Brotherhood is nothing new. As Western Journalism reminded readers in April of this year, Obama’s address in Cairo during his worldwide “apology tour” saw prominent Muslim Brotherhood members sitting in the front row. During that speech, the newly elected president declared:

[The] partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.

SHOCK VIDEO: See Why This Political Panel Just Ridiculed Obama As ‘Insane,’ ‘On Drugs,’ Henpecked

As Western Journalism reported last week, President Obama told the latest graduating class at the Coast Guard Academy that the really big security threat they’re facing in today’s troubled world is climate change. Even as ISIS continues its relentless rampage across the Middle East, Iran pushes toward obtaining a nuclear weapon, even as Russia threatens to destabilize Europe, North Korea is again acting out and China modernizes its military — among many other global threats — Obama points to global warming as the big, ominous storm cloud hovering over America’s security interests.

Reaction to the president’s claim that the Coast Guard and other branches of the U.S. military have to go forth and fight climate change has been, at least among right-leaning Americans, swift and sharply critical. As Cal Thomas observed in an opinion piece for The Washington Times: “If ‘climate change’ made terrorism possible, how does the president explain violent jihadism dating back to the time of the Prophet Muhammad, long before carbon was a concern, or even a footprint? If unemployment causes terrorism, millions of jobless Americans would be taking up arms.”

Now in Egypt — a nation that got rid of a Muslim Brotherhood-controlled government led by a man Obama both praised and supported — a political panel has taken to TV to go farther in their criticism of Obama than even the president’s most vocal TV critics would dare to go in this country. It’s a remarkable two-minute-twenty-second segment translated by the folks at MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute.

You can watch these Egyptian commentators tear into Obama, questioning his sanity, wondering if he’s on drugs, even going so far as to say that it’s Michelle who wears the pants in the first family. Click on the video above to hear these three guys utterly destroy Obama as a weak and fearful man who is intent on destroying the United States.

Website Exposes This Gigantic List Of Clinton Scandals

Almost as soon as she gained national prominence as America’s first lady, Hillary Clinton has been embroiled in scandal after scandal. Admittedly, some were caused – or at least initiated – by her husband; however, as she has continued to make a name for herself as a political heavyweight, controversy continues to hang over her head.

Pundits on both sides of the aisle continue to opine regarding the repercussions of recent scandals – most notably, her use of a private email server while secretary of state and suspicious donations made to her family’s non-profit foundation. One conservative news site, however, is shining a light on some of the White House hopeful’s previous ignominies.

WND recently published a list of “Hillary’s 22 biggest scandals ever,” a list that included more prominent and timely issues as well as incidents that occurred more than two decades ago. The list, as ordered in the WND article, includes the following controversies:

  1. Clintons turn IRS into ‘gestapo’

During Bill Clinton’s second term, reports surfaced that prominent conservative groups had been subjected to audits while there was no indication that any corresponding organizations on the political left had been targeted by the IRS.

  1. Covering Bill’s dirty deeds

Amid allegations of sexual assault against Bill Clinton that cast a negative light on the political power couple, Hillary reportedly aided her husband not only by publicly defending him, but by using shady – and potentially criminal – tactics in an effort to delegitimize his accusers.

  1. Looting the White House

After Clinton’s second term came to a close, the couple reportedly attempted to take roughly $190,000 worth of furniture and other items from the White House – on top of causing about $14,000 in vandalism damage to the presidential mansion.

  1. Filegate: FBI files on GOP enemies

The Clintons reportedly gained confidential tax records on many of their political rivals, a scheme in which Judicial Watch claimed Hillary played a central role.

Huma Abedin, a confidant who served as Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, was linked to the Muslim Brotherhood – specifically through the al-Qaeda connections of both her mother and father.

  1. Vince Foster’s 1993 death

Family friend and White House counsel Vince Foster was himself embroiled in at least a few of the Clintons’ early scandals until his suspicious death. Initially ruled a suicide, the circumstances of Foster’s death have led to significant speculation in the decades since.

  1. Emailgate: ‘She should go to prison for this’

One of the more recent scandals involves Hillary Clinton’s admitted use of a personal email server to share official correspondences during her stint as secretary of state.

  1. Chinagate: Sale of high-tech secrets

Judicial Watch initially released a report suggesting Chinese corporations supported Bill Clinton’s 1996 reelection effort in exchange for technology secrets.

  1. Travelgate: Always room for friends

During the Clinton administration, the Clintons reportedly laid off the White House travel office staff so that they could fill the department with family members and friends.

  1. Whitewater: Jail for friends, but not Clintons

One of the most identifiable Clinton scandals involved an investigation into a real estate deal that later encompassed accusations of improper campaign donations and the couple’s potential involvement in Foster’s death.

  1. ‘Landing under sniper fire’ in Bosnia

Hillary Clinton has faced criticism for her since-debunked 2008 claim that, more than a decade earlier, she was touring war-torn Bosnia in a helicopter as it sustained sniper fire. While she described a very dramatic landing, news footage of the event showed no such threat existed.

  1. Hillary’s ‘missing’ law firm billing records

More than 100 pages of pertinent information went missing ahead of a 1994 federal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s involvement in the Watergate scandal. When the documents did surface two years later, it was revealed that she was in contact with many of the scandal’s central figures.

  1. Pardongate: Hillary Senate contributions

The wife of one convicted tax cheat pardoned by Bill Clinton at the end of his second term responded by becoming a major contributor to Hillary’s 2000 campaign to become a New York senator.

  1. Hillary’s cash cows and 9,987 percent profit

A series of investments in cattle futures was seriously profitable for a young Hillary Clinton. Between 1978 and 1979, a $1,000 investment turned into a nearly $100,000 profit, a success subsequently linked to a Clinton supporter who also happened to be a high-level player at Tyson Foods.

  1. Clinton body count: ‘You find dead people’

Foster was not the only suspicious death linked to the Clintons. In addition to those who met an untimely end after crossing the powerful couple, many others on their wrong side also ended up behind bars.

  1. Hillary’s radical pal, Saul Alinsky

Reports indicate community organizer and author of Rules for Radicals, Saul Alinsky, was a major influence on a young Hillary Clinton. She was involved in Alinsky’s group, Industrial Areas Foundation, for decades after the radical activist’s death.

  1. Hillary laughs about defending child rapist

Audio unveiled decades after it was recorded revealed Hillary Clinton celebrating the fact that an accused child rapist she represented was set free in 1975 – despite the fact that she insinuated that she believed him to be guilty of the crime.

  1. Hillary ca$hes in: Iranian fundraising

The Clinton Foundation reportedly received numerous financial contributions from a group accused of serving as an agent of the Iranian government.

  1. Clinton Foundation: Scandals keep coming

The Clintons’ nonprofit organization has faced controversy far beyond the Iranian connection, including accusations of tax fraud and a secretive deal believed to have facilitated the release of nuclear material to Russia.

  1. Benghazi: 4 American lives lost

A scandal that continues to incite passions involves then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, lambasted for her perceived inaction before, during, and after a 2012 attack that killed four Americans in Libya.

  1. Peter Franklin Paul: Another Hillary friend goes to prison

Paul was an entertainment executive and major financial supporter of Hillary Clinton’s 2000 Senate bid. He has since become an outspoken critic after accepting a plea deal and serving three years in prison for what he contended was retaliation for calling attention to fraud within Clinton’s fundraising methods.

  1. Watergate: Fired for being a ‘liar’

As a House Judiciary Committee staffer in 1974, Hillary Clinton helped investigate the Watergate scandal that led to Richard Nixon’s resignation. She was soon fired by a supervisor who described her as an “unethical, dishonest lawyer.”

Does Hillary have too much baggage to win in 2016? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
