Ellison, Emmer form Somalia caucus

Two Minnesota members of congress from opposite sides of the aisle have formed the Somalia Caucus at the U.S. Capitol.

Fifth District Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison and Sixth District Republican Rep. Tom Emmer said the caucus will advocate for peace and stability in Somalia, which will include efforts to defeat the terrorist network Al-Shabaab.

Minnesota is home to a large Somali-American community, which is concentrated in the Twin Cities and the metro area.

“Together, we represent some of the largest Somali-American communities in the United States,” wrote Ellison and Emmer in a joint statement. “For us and the constituents we represent, Somalia is not a far off foreign policy issue, it’s a matter of domestic policy and national security.”

The caucus will also help create good governance standards for the country and to bring “Somalia’s informal economy into the formal 21stcentury global marketplace.”

    The Muslim Brotherhood infiltrated our government decades ago! Think not?
    In order to review “Top Secret” information did Mohamed Elibiary, former DHS Advisory Council member complete the 127-page OPM SF 86, Questionnaire for National Security Positions for his background investigation?

    How about Mehdi K. Alhassani, Special Assistant to the Office of the Chief of Staff, National Security Council Staff, and Executive Office of the President? Alhassani was the leader of the Muslim Student Association (MSA), a Muslim Brotherhood front group and attended the sister mosque of the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC) mosque attended by the Boston Marathon bombers. It is a mystery how Alhassani slipped through the cracks to become a It is unknown why a few hours before the Benghazi attack, Alhassani met in the White House with Samir Mayekar, a George Soros ‘fellow’ for an unscheduled visit.

    What about politicians, including future presidents? Should they be required to complete the 127-page form PRIOR to the election?

    Stephen Coughlin is warning us is anyone listening? Who is Stephen Coughlin you ask?

    Stephen Coughlin a leading national security advisor and Islamic law expert explains how and why America is losing to jihadists in his new book: “Catastrophic Failure:
    Blindfolding America in the Face of the Jihad”.

    On page #12 Coughlin writes, “I had entered the Intelligence Directorate adhering to
    the traditional methods of analysis. Soon, however, I discovered that within the division there seemed to be a preference for political correctness over accuracy and for models that were generated not by what the enemy said he was, but on what academics and “cultural advisors” said the enemy needed to be, based on contrived social science theories.”

    It seemed the enemy was aware of this as well. Forces hostile to the United States in the War on Terror appeared to have successfully calculated that they could win the war by convincing our national security leaders of the immorality of studying and knowing the enemy.” (snip)

    FIRST, each and every citizen in America must make a decision to live by our Constitution or Shariah/Islamic law! If you want to live by our Constitution and do not get involved then you are nudging us towards a caliphate! BOTH the Democrat Party and the RINO/GOP leadership/followers in the Republican Party refuse to hold hearings on the Muslim Brotherhood and the plan they wrote to destroy us by what they call their “Civilization-Jihad Process” plan and, it is working! Politicians at all levels of government traded away our national security for Cultural Marxism i.e. political correctness and the constant pandering they must do to buy votes and to raise campaign contributions in order to get reelected.

    Every bureaucrat and every politician in office and those running for office, no matter if it is for school board (to STOP the advancement of Shariah/Islamic law into our
    schools with Common Core), mayor, town/city council, county supervisor,
    state/national House/Senate or for president need to answer this national security question: “Is the Muslim Brotherhood in North America (MB) (Ikhwan) our friend or foe? Please provide me with links to the source material that provides you with your view(s).”
    The plan the Muslim Brotherhood wrote to destroy us was presented as evidence in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial and was uncontested by defense during trial and
    during the appeals process however, neither the House nor Senate will hold hearings on it! This is a gross violation of their Oath of Office, the Constitution, especially the Preamble, along with Article I, Section 8, Clause1 BOTH requiring them to “provide for common defense” of this nation. You can buy a copy of their plan to destroy America at Amazon for only $5.50 An Explanatory Memorandum: From the Archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in America or, you can read an online copy here at Center for Security Policy website.

    Will Rep. Keith Ellison and Sixth District Republican Rep. Tom Emmer request hearings on why Obama and Clinton pushed for a UN resolution that places Shariah/Islamic law above our First Amendment?
    I suggest anyone interested about why Obama signed UN Resolution 16/18 go to YouTube and watch a briefing by former DOD/JCS Shariah/Islamic law expert, Stephen Coughlin: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation and its Role in Enforcing Islam. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkAZUvQAzkc

    Why are we refusing to see how the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is pushing us towards their effort to form a global caliphate, an ummah ruled by Shariah/Islamic law? Our Constitution does not allow for Sharia to be practiced here in America!

    Our DOD was infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood in America decades ago! Think not! Who then in DoD or the House and Senate Armed Services Committee is stopping all discussion on 4GW? Have you ever heard of it? Of course not!

    Read: The Changing Face of War: Into the Fourth Generation, by William S. Lind, Marine Corps Gazette, October 1989, this groundbreaking work must be brought to light in today’s environment. https://www.mca-marines.org/files/The%20Changing%20Face%20of%20War%20-%20Into%20the%20Fourth%20Generation.pdf

    Here is one statement that caught my eye: “The first is a component of collapsing the enemy. It is a shift in focus from the enemy’s front to his rear. Terrorism must seek to collapse the enemy from within as it has little capability (at least at present) to inflict
    widespread destruction.” This one appears to be what the Muslim Brotherhood is doing. “Terrorists use a free society’s freedom and openness, its greatest strengths, against it. They can move freely within our society while actively working to subvert it. They use our democratic rights not only to penetrate but also to defend themselves. If we treat them within our laws, they gain many protections; if we simply shoot them down, the television news can easily make them appear to be the victims. Terrorists can effectively wage their form of warfare while being protected by the society they are attacking. If we are forced to set aside our own system of legal protections to deal with terrorists, the terrorists win another sort of victory.”

    The Center for Security Policy felt it important for Americans to better understand– and, then, be able to successfully contend with– those that attempt to destroy or subvert our way of life. As making our nation’s enemies’ threat doctrines available is a key part of the Center for Security Policy’s educational efforts the present the blueprint for the Muslim Brotherhood in America, known as An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America or, in America’s largest terrorist prosecution in US federal court, Government Exhibit 003-0085 3:04-CR-240-G in U.S. v Holy Land Foundation, et al.

    In August of 2004, an alert Maryland Transportation Authority Police officer observed a woman wearing traditional Islamic garb videotaping the support structures of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, and conducted a traffic stop. The driver was Ismail Elbarasse and detained on an outstanding material witness warrant issued in Chicago in connection with fundraising for Hamas.The FBI’s Washington Field Office subsequently executed a search warrant on Elbarasse’s residence in Annandale, Virginia. In the basement of his home, a hidden sub-basement was found; it revealed over 80 banker boxes of the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America. One of the most important of these documents made public to date was entered into evidence during the Holy Land Foundation trial. It amounted to the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic plan for the United States and was entitled, “An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.” The Explanatory Memorandum was written in 1991 by a member of the Board of Directors for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America and senior Hamas leader named Mohammed Akram. It had been approved by the Brotherhood’s Shura Council and Organizational Conference and was meant for internal review by the Brothers’ leadership in Egypt. It was certainly not intended for public consumption, particularly in the targeted society: the United States. For these reasons, the memo constitutes a Rosetta stone for the Muslim Brotherhood, its goals, modus operandi and infrastructure in America. It is arguably the single most important vehicle for understanding a secretive organization and should, therefore, be considered required reading for policy-makers and the public, alike.

    Another extraordinarily important element of the Memorandum is its attachment. Under the heading “ A List of Our Organizations and Organizations of Our Friends,” Akram helpfully identified 29 groups as Muslim Brotherhood fronts. Many of them are even now, some twenty-two years later, still among the most prominent Muslim- American organizations in the United States. Worryingly, the senior representatives of these groups are routinely identified by U.S. officials as “leaders” of the Muslim community in this country, to be treated as “partners” in “countering violent extremism” and other outreach initiatives. Obviously, this list suggests such treatment translates into vehicles for deep penetration of the American government and civil society.

    We urge the readers of this pamphlet to share it with others— family members, friends, business associates and most especially those in a position to help adopt policies that will secure our country against the threat posed by shariah and its most effective and aggressive promoters, the Muslim Brotherhood.

    More about the Explanatory Memorandum (from Shariah: The Threat to America):

    The following Muslim Brotherhood document was entered into evidence in the U.S. v Holy Land Foundation trial, and is a primary source threat document that provides new insights into global jihad organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood. These documents (covered extensively in chapter four) define the structure and outline of domestic jihad threat entities, associated non-governmental organizations and potential terrorist or insurgent support systems. The Memorandum also describes aspects of the global jihad’s strategic information warfare campaign and indications of its structure, reach and activities. It met evidentiary standards to be admissible as evidence in a Federal Court of law .

    In the original document, the first 16 pages are in the original Arabic and the second are English translations of the same. It is dated May 22, 1991 and titled “ An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America” (Memorandum). The document includes an Attachment 1 that contains “a list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends.”

    The Memorandum expressly recognizes the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan) as the controlling element of these organizations and expressly identifies the Muslim Brotherhood as the leadership element in implementing the strategic goals. The Memorandum is reproduced here in its official Federal Court translation, as Government Exhibit 003-0085 3:04-CR-240-G in U.S. v Holy Land Foundation, et al. with punctuation, line spacing and spelling intact.

    From the Explanatory Memorandum— the Muslim Brotherhood in America in its own words:

    “The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
