September 13th, 2012. The MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD is being funded with your taxpayer dollars. WHICH POLITICIAN OUT OF THE 4 BELOW IS FOR SENDING THIS MONEY?
We know what Mitt Romney had to say on the Benghazi issue (blog post #28). I wanted to post others' foreign policy views for the record. You might be surprised at what each said!
SARAH PALIN on HANNITY, September 13th
Sean makes a long introduction about the anti-American extremists protesting a movie that dosen't extist.
Sean: Governor, welcome back to the program. I have to contain my anger, Governor, our flag is ripped down. They're chanting We give this country 2 billion dollars a year.. They're chanting explain that to mem Governor? (0 - 1:31 mark)
Sarah: We have to ask ourselves and, sure wish the reporters would ask the president how much longer can we continue to spill our blood and treasure trying to promote democracy in places that do not have any values for a civilized society, values like respecting minorities and women's rights, an independent judiciary and rule of law.
How much longer do we now support and fund sharia democracy? As for this film, that is a red herring. And the media is going along with some in the Obama administration pretending like its a protest against a phantom video on you tube? No. Its because the Obama administration dropped the ball and they have not taken head on this war terror, and they have adopted a foreign policy of appeasement where our enemies no longer fear us and our friends no longer trust us. Media's going along with this false narrative that the video is the cause of this chaos. (1:31-2:41)
Sean talks about Obama's apology tour and his visit to Cairo to bring world peace (after mentioning the sodomizing of Chris Stevens before he was killed, reported in Wash. Times). (2:41 - 3:20)
Sean: They're blaming Romney. Thank God Romney has spoken out This wasn't supposed to happen.
He shows a clip of Obama apologizing in Cairo. (3:20 - 4:30)
Sean: That's what.. Governor. Has he succeeded in uniting the Muslim world, Governor?
Sarah: He has been so absolutely naive in his foreign policy measures that he's undertaken and putting us in a much weaker position than we were four years ago. Again, with our enemies not fearing us and our friends not being able to trust us and our president not having time to meet with our allies like Netanyahu. And yet, having more time than ever to meeting with and try to appease those who we should be showing our strength to, instead of this kind of capitulation, a BIG GROUP HUG from America, to those who would seek America's harm. (4:43 - 5:22)
Sean last question. Drudge Report.Revealed inside story. A study out of thenewpaper the Independent. The State Dept. had credible information 48 hours ahead of time. How much time.... 5:23 - 5:56
Sarah: That's what I mean about Obama administration dropping the ball. They had 48 hours. The anniversary of 9/11 is a volatile time. WHAT IS WRONG with this administration that would ever put America's interset on the back burner in order to appease some of these people in some of these places that do not value civilized society? (5:57 - 6:28)
ALLEN WEST on HANNITY September 13th
"PEACE through STRENGTH was Reagan's way of handling foreign affairs."
WEST: We're operating in fantasy land. What you see coming from Obama and his administration is what you called dhimmitude in the ISlamic world, when you look at Obama's speech in Turkey, and his bowing to the Saudi King, and the interaction there, the speech he gave at the University of Cairo, Muslim Brotherhood sees weakness and a policy of appeasement as Governor Palin said.
The Muslim Brotherhood has a plan for the United States. It's called an explanatory memorandum. (2)
It was uncovered in Northern Virginia during an FBI raid back in May of 1991. It's very clear what their intent is. When you read their charter, this is a group very closely tied to terrorism. It is the grand- father of all these other Islamic subsidiaries, established back in the 1920's.
Hannity - I dont think appeasement in the right word as much the president projects weakness. HE IS WEAK, and the people in the Middle East all they know is strength.
WEST: Reagan went right after the people (LIBYA, Omwar Khadafi) who were behind the bombings of the soldiers in a German disco, and immediately shut them down. A sovereign piece was attacked. When you attack an embassy and kill an ambassador, its like an attack on U.S. soil. This has nothing to do with a silly little video that came out six months ago. To use that as an excuse is a bludgeoning tactic for ourselves and it fruther emboldens them.
So WHAT we need to do is have a very harsh diplomatic stance first and foremost to get our American citizens and get these embassies closed down, and tell the diplomats and representatives from these countries to go home and figure out how their relations they are going to have with the United America, and how they are going to control RADICAL ISLAMISM in their countries. It's very clear they're taking the side of being enemies of this state. We need to send that message.
Furthermore, the conditions we have in place for FUNDING should not change. (3)
JOHN MCCAIN on HANNITY, September 13th
"The Libyan people are friends of ours and they support democracy."
Sean starts his interview with McCain with condolences for Ambassador Chris Stevens who McCain knew. Sean is beyond outraged and angry about Obama's reaction to all this (the embassies being attacked, the chanting in support of Al-Qaeda, the ripping of the flag, which was, through the State Department, to apologize to them.
McCain The apology was a weak statement that was later changed. It's a situation in which the Egyptian government had the responsibility and FAILED in protecting the embassy.
Sean: The Egyptian President MORSI is calling for more protests.. President Obama confirmed aid will continue. Why are we still funding them? Is that a mistake?
McCain: Btw President Mohammed MORSI did go to Tehran and condemn Bashir Rassad.
Sean reacts.. Did he condemn IRAN when he was there? No. What was the purpose for that meeting except probably align with Iran in their hatred for Israel.
McCain: I know this. Egypt is the heart of the Arab world... It is not in our interest to see it to travel down the path of Radical Islam, or for Al-Qaeda to gain a foothold there. Extremism. We need to recalibrate whether our assistance there will help or hurt. There needs to be a re-examination of our relationship, but to cut off all relations with them is not appropriate.
Sean wants to know how is it that Hannity predicted that this wasn't a "democracy" movement. How is it we predicted with pinpoint accuracy that the Muslim Brotherhood would be in charge in Egypt and that their first task when they took over parliament, was to declare Israel our ally, their enemy.
Sean: How is it that the Administration didn't see this coming and kept telling the American people "this is democracy" .. and they want Sharia Law implemented now?? McCain: That's not clear that that's true.
McCain: There were people at Fox like you who said in Libya we did not know who they were. Let's not help these people. They had an election that night. They rejected Islamists. Yes, there are factions of Al-Qaeda. The Libyan people are friends of ours and they support democracy. They had a free and fair election. So YOU (Sean) were wrong about Libya.
Sean: I dont think I was wrong about Libya at all.
McCain: I know you were.
Sean: NO I was not!
McCain: They had a free and fair election, and a democratic, non-Islamic government was elected. So you were wrong.
Sean: So while it was happening, I always say, what are you going to replace it (Egypt) with? They didn't think the Muslim Brotherhood would take over. This is a known terror org...

"While we are angry we should still be smart about our foreign policy" / "There is a difference between Libya and Egypt."
In this lengthy segment, Marco Rubio is echoing what John McCain said on Hannity: 1) He blames Egypt for not securing the Embassy and 2) There was a legitimate election in Libya. The government there is trying to do the right thing. (If all of that is true, why didn't the State Department send the money allocated for security there?)
Marco Rubio says that working with Egypt is important, that despite the fact that Morsi is the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood there, that even if we are angry, that we should have smart foreign policy there. He says he knows we're upset at the terrorists. (NO, Marco, we're upset at this administration!)
Senator Rubio says the terrorist extremists attacked the consulate, not the people of Libya (that is what both Hillary and McCain have said), that there are protests going on in Libya against the terrorists. Not once during this speech does Senator Rubio BLAME THE STATE DEPARTMENT or HILLARY CLINTON specifically for SIGNING off on NO MARINES to protect the consulate.
With regard to sending aid to Egypt, Libya and Pakistan, Rubio says that not all these countries are the same, that we should expect more from the Muslim Brotherhood, that they should say to their people what they say to us in English, but he is not clear on whether there should be no more aid to EGYPT, specifically, who happens to be sponsoring terrorism. He says the situation is "complicated."
Rubio further states that none of these events are happening because of a video. That extremists who commit these acts of violence are offended by women and christianity. That our whole culture is offensive to them. That this is a critical moment for the Muslim Brotherhood. Again, my question to Rubio is WHY IS HE TRYING TO REASON WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE ATTACKING US??
His last point was that we WILL support those wanting a better future, and concludes by saying to Senator Paul who is calling for restrictions on aid to these countries: "There is a difference between Libya and Egypt". (6)
