Obama Silent as Egyptian Courts Suspend Work Indefinitely

It's being billed as a protest, but the judges of Egypt's top court appear to have had no choice but suspend the court's work indefinitely after supporters of President Mohamed Morsi physically prevented them from entering the court facilities this weekend.

This follows closely on the heels of Morsi's declaration that his decisions were not subject to judicial review.

According to Morsi, the courts still have supporters of ex-President Hosni Mubarak working for them, and the declaration was merely to ensure that the lingering Mubarak elements did not delay the transition to democracy.

The White House, predictably, views this as no big deal.

Presidential spokesman Jay Carney called it an "internal matter." And why would the White House express any alarm over the rise of what looks like a Muslim tyrant that it helped install?

From the beginning, the Obama Administration has had rose-colored glasses tinting its view of the Muslim Brotherhood, which the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Congress is "largely secular."

Then there's the matter of Huma Abedin, top adviser to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whose family has undenied links to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Valerie Jarrett, who has been called the real power at the White House, is an Iranian-American with uncertain connections to the Iran regime and the Muslim Brotherhood, whose representatives have met with her frequently.

And the president himself has well-known ties to, and preference for, the Muslim world.

From top to bottom, the Obama Administration is influenced by the Muslim Brotherhood, according to Rep. Louie Gohmert, who was one  of five members of Congress who in June raised serious national security questions about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in the capital.

The letter to the inspector generals of the Departments of Homeland Security, State and Justice caused an uproar over the questioning of Abedin's security clearance, even though the question about her was only one of scores of inquiries about favoritism toward Muslims and security lapses involving the Muslim Brotherhood.

But Gohmert sees Muslim Brotherhood infiltration as the only reasonable explanation for many of the Administration's policies in the Middle East.

"You look at the decisions (the Obama Administration) made, especially in the last two years, in going through the revolutions in Northern Africa and across the Middle East and to the Far East," said Gohmert, "and the only way you can explain the horrendous decisions that were so completely wrongheaded would be if the administration had a bunch of Muslim Brotherhood members giving them advice."

Combined with that, President Obama and his cronies exhibit outright disdain for Israel, as evidenced in the recent round of attacks by Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Instead of criticizing the Palestinians for once again jump starting hostilities, the White House has been chastising Israel for defending itself. It has said nothing about Iran openly rearming and advising the Palestinians.

When the UN General Assembly on Thursday upgraded Palestine from "mission" to "observer state," the White House didn't bat an eyelash. Nor has it said anything about the Palestinian Authority changing its official name to simply "Palestine."

And yet, when Israel called the vote "meaningless" and approved development in East Jerusalem, Clinton found time to warn Israel about setting back "the cause of negotiated peace."

It's probably futile to expect our Congress to do anything or our media to investigate, but allowing the Islamist corruption to continue unchallenged puts our nation in an increasingly dangerous position.

    Anyone paying attention would have anticipated it. Obama is in league with the Muslim Brotherhood whose raison d'etra is annihilation of the West and the re-establishment of the Islamic Caliphate....and only the blind refuse to acknowledge it.

    Proof?

    1. Obama began his administration by insisting that the MB be present for his Cairo speech in 2009 (against the wishes of Mubarak and others because it was well known as the sponsor of terrorism) thus giving them credibility by standing with them before the world.

    2. He has invited them to the White House. A year-long investigation by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has found that scores of known radical Islamists made hundreds of visits to the Obama White House, meeting with top administration officials.

    Court documents and other records have identified many of these visitors as belonging to groups serving as fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and other Islamic militant organizations.

    3. He supported their actions in Egypt during the Arab spring and their candidate in the subsequent elections, while his flunkies like White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan, put forth a false narrative about the MB having been reformed and no long sponsoring terrorism.....and that it should be trusted.

    4. Obama is planning to bailout Egypt by forgiving the $1 billion in Egyptian government debt, almost a third of its total burden and is working with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) — largely funded by American taxpayers — to secure a $5-billion loan for the regime. On top of that, U.S. officials are in the process of creating multiple funds and programs worth almost $500 million to help politically connected U.S. and Egyptian businesses. All of that taxpayer money would be in addition to the regular “security” and “foreign aid” packages which total 1.5 billion annually.

    5. Obama's DOJ scuttled the prosecution of these same Muslim Brotherhood groups named in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation's history, the Holy Land Foundation trial.

    6. They have been integrated into many levels of our government and have influence in the NYPD and other police organizations.

    7.The Obama administration relied on the Muslim Brotherhood for Benghazi Consulate security (using the February 17th Brigade, a MB group)

    And the list could go on.

    The Obama administration has said nothing in condemnation of Morsi's policy of persecuting and murdering Christians (and other non-Muslim groups), and there's been little reporting about it by the media. Morsi is doing what is necessary to consolidate power and establish the Caliphate, and Obama will continue to fund it all with our money.

      You've summed it up very well for all of us.
