Canada is no stranger to the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, a fact we have also written about. A political entity, the Muslim brotherhood is a distinct danger to our democratic freedoms.

America is under attack, and sadly the undermining of our Constitution is being conducted with the complicity of beautiful, idealistic Americans, who have been deluded into thinking they are supporting the transformation to a more just society.
After Obama’s crime of trying to take down a sitting president, there has been no outcry from the public, even out of respect for the office, if not the man. Meanwhile the race card has been so weaponized that even those who know the hidden truth about Obama are afraid to tell it.
As some Americans have long suspected Obama is an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood [hereafter MB], and there is significant documentation, besides his own actions, to prove it. This is not a “conspiracy theory.” The only conspiracy theory, as the Epoch Times, shows, is Russia-gate, the one manufactured under the guidance of Obama with phony evidence provided by Hillary’s campaign.
The takedown of Mike Flynn. General Flynn was taken down by rogue agents of the FBI because as NSA he would have revealed and quashed the Russia-gate plot, but it goes further than that. On January 4 2016, before FBI agents interviewed Flynn, Obama, revealed to former deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and former FBI head, James Comey that he had possession of all of Flynn’s phone calls with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
Surely Obama was outraged when he learned that Trump’s selected NSA was bent on possibly pursuing U.S. cooperation with Russia against radical Islam in Syria. In the key phone call, Flynn and Kislyak virtually agreed not to escalate mutual embassy withdrawals in response to Obamas sanctions on Russia. But in another little known call, Flynn also indicated to Kislyak that they could soon, “…have a better conversation about where we’re gonna go, uh regarding our relationship”
“Basically,” said Flynn, “… we definitely have a common enemy. You have a problem with it, and we have a problem with it in this country, and we definitely have a problem with it in the Middle East.” They were talking about Russian and U.S. cooperation against radical Islam — which then as now was the last thing Obama wanted.
Why Flynn was fired from the DIA. Two days after the November 2016 election, Obama warned Trump not to hire Flynn as NSA because of his “mismanagement and temper issues.” Possibly true. In August 2012, Flynn was indeed a problem for Obama, and not just because he objected to the whitewashed language Obama insisted on; calling our enemies “extremists” rather than “radical jihadists,” He also repeatedly asked Obama to put more of his spies in Syria.
As he warned the Senate Armed Services Committee in June 2014, the chaos there would allow ISIS to make a comeback in Iraq and declare an Islamic caliphate. He was right. He was also fired soon after. Neither would Obama bomb ISIS training camps in Iraq, though so advised by U.S. intelligence agencies and begged by the Iraqi government. It was President Trump whose forces in 2019, finally annihilated al Qaeda and ISIS in Iraq and killed their leader al-Baghdadi.
Flynn aleady knew why Obama had not heeded his warnings. A report issued by Flynn’s DIA in August 2012 has since been obtained and declassified by Judicial Watch. At that time the American public was told and believed that Obama and Secretary of State Hillary were arming “moderate rebels” to fight those seeking to take down Syrian dictator, Bashar al Assad. But as the DIA document confirms, that is not what they were doing. Obama and Hillary were arming al Qaeda and incipient ISIS against Assad.
In 2016, Flynn discussed this DIA memo with Mehdi Hassan of Al Jazeera. Here is part of the transcript:
Mehdi Hasan: …Let me before we move on, just to clarify once more, you are basically saying that even in government at the time, you knew those groups were around. You saw this analysis – and you were arguing against it. But who wasn’t listening?
Michael Flynn: I think the administration.
Mehdi Hasan: So the administration turned a blind eye to your analysis –
Michael Flynn: I don’t know if they turned a blind eye. I think it was a decision. I think it was a wilful decision.
Mehdi Hasan: A wilful decision to go – support an insurgency that had Salafist, al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood?
Michael Flynn: [INTERRUPTING] Well, a wilful decision to do what they’re doing, which, which you have to really – you have to really ask the President, what is it that he actually is doing with the, with the policy that is in place, because it is very, very confusing? I’m sitting here today, Mehdi, and I don’t, I can’t tell you exactly what that is, and I’ve been at this for a long time.
Hedging his language carefully, Flynn did know what Obama was doing, and he also likely knew that under Obama, ISIS was even being trained by the U.S. at a facility in Jordan. Judicial Watch has also obtained this evidence.
Flynn’s interview with Seymour Hersh. In a 2016 virtually banned-in-the-U.S. interview with Flynn, “Military to Military,” Flynn revealed to Pulitzer prize-winning reporter Seymour Hersh what he was really experiencing. “…If the American public saw the intelligence we were producing daily, at the most sensitive level, they would go ballistic!”He also inveighed at the “enormous push back” he got from the Obama administration. “I felt that they did not want to hear the truth.”
As Hersh also reported, important to Flynn and former Joint Chief Martin Dempsey, was Obama’s 2011 NATO intervention in Libya. There, secular Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi, then working with the United States, had been brutally murdered by so called “moderate” rebels armed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The result had been a failed Jihadi state with war torn civilians inundating Europe.
Obama told Chris Wallace it was “the worst mistake of his presidency.” Mistake? Why then was Hillary helping to ship arms raided from dead Gadaffi’s stockpile to rebels in Syria? (Christopher Stevens was her go-between to the Libyan rebels collecting these arms.)
Other material declassified by Judicial Watch shows that the Obama administration knew ten days in advancethat the Benghazi consulate where Stevens and other Americans were killed would be attacked, and that al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman”(the Blind Sheikh) were involved. Why then was the attack not averted?
With plenty of time to order help for the consulate, Obama, who had dismissed ISIS “as a terrorist ‘JV team,” went to a fundraiser. But as Flynn warned Congress in 2015, the threat of Islamic extremism had “… reached an unacceptable level…We are at war with violent and extreme Islamists, both Sunni and Shia, and we must accept and face this reality.”
Congress didn’t appreciate Flynn’s “narrative,” but someone else surely had figured things out. In 2015, Russian President Vladimir Putin intervened in Syria to save both Assad and his considerable investments there.
What is the Muslim Brotherhood?[Hereafter MB]. There is a second document even more revelatory than the DIA one of Obama’s alliance with our our enemies. This is Obama’s 2011 Presidential Directive-11, never fully declassified .
But before we look at this document, please understand the following: Islam is a normal and even beautiful religion for patriotic Muslims who have evolved beyond its 7th century laws. We read some of its tenets in an Albanian mosque. Albania and certain other countries and Muslim groups have come to reject and even ban its deadly political component, Sharia law.
But the MB is not one of them. Though not as deadly as some of its terrorist offshoots — it allows elections and claims to eschew violence (although in Egypt it didn’t)– its proponents follow the Sharia-prescribed policy of infiltrating another country at every possible level of its civilian life and government, undermining its laws until its numbers are strong enough to overthrow the existing regime.
It also embraces brutal laws that denigrate women and govern every aspect of human life. Among these are that no religion but Islam can be worshiped and those who do are discriminated against and heavily taxed.
It has been declared a terrorist organization by Russia, Syria, the Saudis, the UAE, and Egypt. The largest such group in the world, it has also generated other terrorist groups – al Qaeda and ISIS as well as Hamas, which was “founded as the Palestinian branch of the Brotherhood.”
In 2019, President Trump, urged by El Sisi, tried to have the MB declared a terrorist group in the U.S., but he was narrowly defeated. Reporting on this, The New York Times appeared to minimize the potential impact of the MB in America.
Presidential Study Directive 11. As the Washington Times wrote in 2015, Obama’s PSD-11 task force confirmed that backing the MB was promoted as a viable movement for the U.S. Government to support throughout North Africa and the Middle East.”
Why? Because the directive essentially, “…came to the bizarre conclusion that the Muslim Brotherhood’s brand of political Islam, combined with its fervent nationalism, could lead to ‘reform and stability’” Thus, American diplomats were ordered “to make contact with top MB leaders.” It gave active support, “to the organization’s drive for power in key nations like Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Syria, at the 2011 outset of the ‘Arab Spring.”
Surely this dramatic reversal in U.S. foreign policy was never approved by Congress. It has remained largely unknown to the American public despite a large number of groups and newspapers that have been written about it in the past.
The key fact is that Obama’s policy was essentially in diametric opposition to standard U.S. American policy. As American Arabist Raymond Ibrahim has explained, PSD-11, ultimately concluded,“… the United States should shift from its longstanding policy of supporting “stability” in the Middle East and North Africa (that is, support for “stable regimes” even if they were authoritarian), to a policy of backing “moderate” Islamic political movements.”
Moderate? Hardly. And how wrong that decision was! As William Enghdale of Global Report explained in December 2018, what lay behind the surprise emergence of ISIS across Syria in 2014 was that PSD-11 involved the role of the Muslim Brotherhood in a “..blueprint for the most ambitious and far-ranging series of US-backed regime change across the Islamic Middle East since World War I and the Anglo-French Sykes-Picot agreement,…”
“It was to set off a wave of wars and chaos, of failed states and floods of war refugees unimaginable to the most cynical veteran diplomat, and beyond the belief of most lay persons in the world.”
Although PSD-11 has never been fully declassified, its aims were outlined in 2016 by Peter Hoekstra, the former chair of the U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in their “Investigative Project on Terrorism.”Some of Obama’s key operatives were also mentioned. It again underlines that Obama and Clinton pivoted from historical U.S. strategy to a strategy favoring the aims of the MB regardless of the impact on regional stability.”
The Investigative Project’s report also claimed that PSD-11 directly led to U.S. engagement with the MB. Moreover, it concluded that, “U.S. officials did not concern themselves with questions over whether the new power structures[induced by regime change] would become allies or foes, or with intelligence agency warnings about the jihadist chaos such regime change might unleash.”
It is absolutely horrifying to read this report. Was Obama merely naive and foolish? And what did the press know? Certainly, an earlier reporter for the New York Times admitted to supposed knowledge of Obama’s MB connections in 2012 and tried hard to describe them as a good thing — a terror group that supports al Qaeda and ISIS!
Another New York Times 2011 article also referred to PSD-11, with special emphasis on Egypt. What is important here is that in 2012, both Obama and Hillary backed the narrow election in Egypt of Muslim Brotherhood president Muhammad Morsi. There followed massive demonstrations by millions of Egyptians bristling under draconian Sharia law, who cheered when El Sisi’s miltiary overthrew Morsi, having found him even worse than El Sisi. Obama then put sanctions on U.S. foreign aid to Egypt.
The Egyptian’s surely will not welcome further U.S. plans in this direction if Biden is elected. In 2017, the MB was still attacking Coptic (Christian) churches in Egypt and killing Christians as they have elsewhere in the world. To this day, the Egyptians despise Obama.
It thus becomes understandable why Obama tried to take down Trump as well as Flynn. As the author of of Field of Flight, How We Can Win The Global War Against Radical Islam And Its Allies, Flynn was simply a foe to be destroyed.
Domestic policy; Obama’s true plans for America. But Obama’s efforts have not just been confined to foreign policy. Following prescribed Sharia law, he has also been working hard to Islamize America, with its basic Christian-Judaic ethic.
Consider that on July 21, 2020, Joe Biden declared to Islam activist Linda Sarsour at a Million Muslim Votes summit “If I have the honor of being president, I will end the Muslim ban on day one. He then accused the Trump Administration of “Islamicphobia” and stated that, “One of the things I think is important, I wish we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith.”Really? what about Christianity and Judaism? Or other religions?
As early as 2015 The American Center for Law and Justice, backed up by the million member Act for America (ACT) began speaking of a “nationwide epidemic” and they didn’t mean Covid-19. Parents from California ot Maine contacted ACT — concerned about the teaching of Islam in their local schools.” In 2017, as reported by the Washington Post and other papers, nationwide rallies and marches took place from coast to coast against the teaching of sharia law in the schools and were attacked by the Antifa and other counter protestors.
Biden’s Puppet Master. The religious indoctrination of school children has proceeded under the Machiavellian puppet master, Obama, who is pulling doddering Biden’s strings. Under Obama’s previous watch U.S. taxpayers were being forced to fund “pro-Islamic propaganda”and Biden wants more of it. This is also the sameLinda Sarsour, who upholds disavowal of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.
The takedown of both Flynn and Trump was part of a larger plan in which the Obama brilliantly tried but failed to create the Manchurian candidate Trump. He thus helped to craft a hall of mirrors in which America’s own principles of opposing racism and endorsing the American melting pot and multi-culturalism, were weaponized. The race card became the scimitar in which to impale our Constitution and our way of life.
There will likely never be enough conclusive evidence for the left to believe that Obama is an agent of the MB. But questions must be raised. No matter the outcome, the truth must out. Americans deserve to know it before the election because if Trump is defeated, it will be too late. What is clear is that Obama has acted in secrecy and with malicious intent. He did not risk organizing the takedown of Trump and Flynn simply because he didn’t like their politics — but rather because their policies in defense of America and its Constitution disagreed with his own.
