    McCain is a miserable, nasty, hotheaded SOB.

    I recall him back in the 1990's, during kerry the Traitor's Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs.

    We met him and tried to talk to him about the committee and present evidence and our positions on the possibility of POW's still being alive in SE Asia. He blew up and essentially called us liars, unpatriotic and rumor mongers among other things.

    Then, the Traitor, kerry, said later that there might be "a couple of hundred" men left there. So what? "What do you want us to do, go back to war for a few hundred men?"

    Well, no, just don't normalize relations until they're accounted for.

    McCain, a former POW signed off on the committee findings, which totally disregarded numerous eyewitness sightings of living POW's. American troops we had left behind.

    Only Senator Grassley and former Sen Bob Smith (NH) refused to go along with the findings. To this day, unfortunately, neither can talk about the committee.

    Actually he is more inclined to get 'visibly uncomfortable' when its 'fanatics saying crazy things' from his own party, not the dems. If he applied this to dems he would be hard pressed to be anything but 'visibly uncomfortable' for his entire tenure.

    I say he should just switch partys and be done with it. But he wont. The media doesnt care so much about dems who go off on reps as much as they do when reps go off on reps. Its a win-win for a rino media whore who happens to harbor a chip on his shoulder for conservatives anyway.

    Exactly, as far as the rest of the argument is concerned. Huma is an American citizen who is a muslim.

    I know McCain is not liked much these days among conservatives, but some of the things he is hated for are the very things that make him a decent person.

    Nidal Hasan is an American citizen. He also had a security clearance because the FBI was too PC to investigate him when he was trading e-mails with a jihadi cleric, lecturing his peers on the merits of terrorists and suicide bombers and otherwise setting himself as the poster child for jihad. The point is that we vet everyone, no matter what. Huma Abedin's close familial ties to members of the Muslim Brotherhood should have set of all sorts of alarm bells when she was appointed to the State Department, and if they didn't, then we have a serious problem. OTOH, if she was vetted and passed, then the agencies just have to say that and we're done. However, Bachmann had every right to ask the questions, and the hysterically outraged response tells me that there may be something to her concerns.

    On the flip side, say someone wanted clearance but who's family has ties to the Freemen. Do you think clearance would be given?

    " adding that Abedin's position "affords her routine access to the secretary and to policy-making."

    That's the crux of it. She's got known ties to the muzzie brotherhood and she sleeps with Hitlary.

    Now, the left wing loonies will bring up ol' Tailgunner Joe and rise up in righteous indignation at this latest 'witch hunt', but, after all, Ol' Joe was right and we need look no further than the Oval Office to know that.

    "These days?" McLame hasn't been liked by Conservatives for many years. He was tolerated in an attempt to prevent the Marxist-racist takeover of the WH. He isn't "liked" by Conservatives. McLame's propensity for caving to Libertards doesn't make him a "decent" person, it makes him a coward and/or closet liberal.

    The RINO bros ride again ...

    Huma Abedin and the Muslim Brotherhood: Closely Connected

    Senator John McCain ought to be embarrassed. So should House Speaker John Boehner and Congressman Mike Rogers, the former FBI agent who chairs the Select Committee on Intelligence.

    These pillars of the Republican establishment have been championing the cause of Huma Abedin, the deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Ms. Abedin’s name arose, along with several others, in connection with questions pressed by five conservative House Republicans regarding Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the United States government. The GOP establishment, led by McCain, Boehner, and Rogers, has been slamming Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, one of the five House conservatives, over her refusal to back down from concerns over Ms. Abedin.

    Here are four things, among many, that we now know:

    • 1. Huma Abedin’s mother, Dr. Saleha S. Mahmood Abedin (hereafter, Saleha Abedin), is an influential member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s division for women, the Muslim Sisterhood. She is also a zealous advocate of sharia law’s oppression of women — which McCain himself condemned in a 2011 interview with Der Spiegel.

      2. Not only that: Saleha Abedin is a board member of the International Islamic Council for Dawa and Relief. The IICDR has been long banned in Israel for supporting Hamas. It is also part of the Union for Good, which is a formally designated international terrorist organization under federal law. The Union for Good is led by Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the chief sharia jurist of the Muslim Brotherhood. He is the world’s most influential Islamic cleric, and has issued fatwas endorsing suicide bombings against Israel and terrorist attacks against American forces in Iraq.

      3. Moreover, it turns out that Huma Abedin herself was, until late 2008, a member of another of her mother’s Islamist organizations, the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs. >>>

      4. Furthermore, Huma Abedin’s brother, Hassan Abedin, besides also being part of the IMMA, was a fellow at the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies. On the board at the Oxford Center when Hassan Abedin was a fellow were the aforementioned Brotherhood heavyweights and terror promoters, Sheikh Qaradawi and Abdullah Omar Naseef.

    There is a great deal of background information now available about Huma Abedin and her family connections to the Brotherhood. In particular, extensive research has been done by Walid Shoebat (a former Muslim Brother who has renounced the Brotherhood) and the Center for Security Policy. I would encourage interested readers to peruse the information they have put out and are continuing to unearth. I am simply distilling the highlights, which powerfully demonstrate that it is the Republican establishment acting irresponsibly, not Rep. Bachmann and her conservative colleagues.

    In a nutshell, shortly after Huma Abedin was born in 1976, the Abedin family moved from Kalamazoo, Michigan, to Saudi Arabia, a country governed by sharia and thus one of the world’s most repressive places, particularly for women. The family’s move was encouraged by Naseef, who would soon be secretary-general of the Muslim World League. >>>

    Saleha Abedin, like her late husband, is an academic. She is also a member of the Muslim Brotherhood — specifically, of its women’s division, the Muslim Sisterhood. Shoebat explains that Sisterhood members include the wives and some other female relatives of high-ranking Brotherhood members. >>>

    Michele Bachmann and her four conservative House colleagues — Louie Gohmert, Trent Franks, Lynn Westmorland and Tom Rooney — have called for a serious vetting of government officials who may have Muslim Brotherhood ties. Obviously, it is much needed in light of the Brotherhood’s hostility to America, promotion of terrorism, and propagation of Islamic supremacist ideology. Yet, the Obama administration and the Left are obstructing such a vetting — with strong assistance from Republican leadership in Congress. What is going on here is classic misdirection: While everyone is focused on Huma Abedin and the demagoguing of Michele Bachmann, no one seems to be noticing that the administration — with GOP leadership’s apparent approval — is serially aligning American government policy with Muslim Brotherhood priorities.

    Senator McCain is probably hopeless. But perhaps Speaker Boehner and Chairman Rogers could find a way to attack the Muslim Brotherhood rather than their conservative colleagues. Just a thought.

    PJMedia

    I guess it shouldnt be too surprising that Boehner and Mike Rogers have now joined that useless tool of the left, McPain. Has anyone announced a primary challenge to this weasel Boehner? There are just so many real leaders that could fill those spineless shoes. Mark Levin asked a question of Boehner: "Does he stand with the Muslim Brotherhood, or stand with Michele Bachmann" ? - Good question.

    Support Michele Bachmann here.

    If Bachman can prove what she is alleging, she should do so. Otherwise, she shouldn't make such serious allegations against Huma.
    So...how's it coming on finding a link to the letter where it shows what you stated above as JB asked about?

    Or are you hoping we had just forgotten about that?

    Newt Gingrich defends Bachmann and others asking questions about Muslim Brotherhood and Huma Abedin

    Newt Gingrich told Politico that the questions raised by Michele Bachmann and the other 4 GOP Congressmen about the Muslim Brotherhood and Huma Abedin are valid and worth investigating. He also says the attacks against Bachmann and others coming from Boehner and the GOP leadership are wrong and suggested the elite culture in Washington is far too politically correct.

    RightScoop

    Gingrich said "the level of hysteria attacking these five members of Congress," including another former presidential hopeful, Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann, indicates there's something going on. He also said no one in the "elite culture" in the United States was prepared to cope with radical Islam .... We have nobody in our elites who is prepared to come to grips with this because it violates the fundamental norm of our elites, which is everything is negotiable."

    "it violates the fundamental norm of our elites, which is everything is negotiable."

    Including our liberty, our Constitution and even the country.

    We are not going to win as a free people until we return Washington to it's Constitutionally defined limitations.
