Bill reintroduced to designate Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization

This is timely, as Biden’s handlers appear to be once again aiding the Brotherhood, as Obama did during his first two terms as well.

Republican Senators Reintroduce Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act

Asharq Al-Awsat, November 6, 2021:

A draft bill presented by several US Republican Senators to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization sparked controversy, as many officials warn of its repercussions on Washington’s relations with several friendly and allied countries.

US Senators Ted Cruz, Jim Inhofe, and Ron Johnson led a move that reintroduced the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act.

The bill urges the Department of State to use its statutory authority to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).

Cruz said that it’s time that “we join our allies in the Arab world in formally recognizing the Muslim Brotherhood for what they truly are—a terrorist organization.”

“I’m proud to reintroduce this bill to urge the Biden administration to designate them as such and advance our nation’s fight against terrorism.”

The Senator stressed that “we have a duty to hold the Muslim Brotherhood accountable for their role in financing and promoting terrorism across the Middle East.”

Earlier, Cruz criticized the Biden administration and Democratic senators from the House Committee on Appropriations for withholding $130 million worth of military aid to Egypt until Cairo released some Muslim Brotherhood political prisoners.

He also “blasted” President Biden’s nominee for Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs, Barbara Leaf, slamming the Senate Democrats for trying to release “Muslim Brotherhood propagandist” who is “anti-semite and hate preacher.”

US and Egypt will launch the strategic dialogue on Monday with the two delegations led by Foreign Ministers Anthony Blinken and Sameh Shoukry in Washington.

However, Republican and Democratic lawmakers objected to such bills, saying that classifying the group as terrorists may not be helpful because it is no longer a unified organization.

They warn that such classification might harm the US relations with many friendly and allied countries, led by Turkey. They also note that some Muslim Brotherhood affiliates who are not classified as extremists are members of Arab governments and parliaments….

A Citizen is One Thing — But Natural Born

Written by Mario Apuzzo, Constitutional expert, defining Natural Born Citizen as the Founders meant. He concludes the only definition is:

A child born in a country to parents who were its citizens at the time of birth, both right of blood and right of soil merge into the child at the moment of birth to create a unity of citizenship and allegiance only to the United States and to no other nation.

Below are some excerpts from Apuzzo’s very recent writing on the subject:

It is treason upon the Constitution and the Framers’ command that for the sake of the national security of the republic, for persons born after the adoption of the Constitution, no person except a natural born citizen is to be eligible to be President and Commander in Chief of the Military, to interpret the natural born citizen clause out of the Constitution and replace it with how we may today define under the positive laws of the Fourteenth Amendment or naturalization Acts of Congress a citizen of the United States at birth, a person who, if not also a natural born citizen, is not born with sole allegiance to the United States.

[ … ]

With these principles to guide us, we can only conclude that de facto President Barack Obama, Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Marco Rubio, and Governor Bobby Jindal are all not natural born citizens. None of them were born in the United States to parents who were both U.S. citizens at the time of their children’s birth.

[ … ]

Obama, assuming he was born in the United States, is a citizen of the United States at birth, but only by virtue of the Fourteenth Amendment. He is not and cannot be a natural born citizen under the common law because while he was presumably born in the United States to a U.S. citizen mother, he was born to a non-U.S. citizen father.

[ … ]

Cruz was born in Canada, presumably to a U.S. citizen mother and a non-U.S. citizen father. He can be a citizen of the United States at birth, but only by virtue of a naturalization Act of Congress (section 301(a)(7) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952). He is not and cannot be a natural born citizen under the common law because, while he was born to a U.S. citizen mother, he was not born in the United States and he was born to a non-U.S. citizen father.

[ ,,, ]

Rubio and Jindal were born in the United States to two non-U.S. citizen parents. They are both citizens of the United States at birth, but only by virtue of the Fourteenth Amendment. They are not and cannot be natural born citizens under the common law because, while they were born in the United States, they were born to two non-U.S. citizen parents.

CAIR, Left fail to strongarm Ted Cruz into pulling out of event with Robert Spencer

Ted Cruz and I were both featured speakers at the Young America’s Foundation’s New England Freedom Conference in Nashua, New Hampshire this weekend, and the Leftists and Islamic supremacists were in an uproar: the Hamas-linked terror organization the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) demanded that Cruz withdraw from the event, and Mother Jones and Media Matters both published lengthy guilt-by-association pieces, wildly misstating and misrepresenting my views and trying to tar Cruz with positions that neither he nor I hold.

Cruz didn’t cave in to this pressure; both he and I spoke at the YAF event, and the media is still reeling from his refusal to submit to their dictates.The Hill said yesterday:

The speech was not without controversy — the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) asked him not to attend due to Robert Spencer’s appearance at the same event. Spencer is an author who has courted controversy over his criticism of Islam.

“Courted controversy.” Heh. Yeah, we’re going steady. And the Washington Post:

Cruz spoke at the Young America’s Foundation New England Freedom Dinner in Nashua. The Council on Islamic Relations asked Cruz not to appear because Robert Spencer, who co-founded an anti-Muslim group, was also appearing at the conference.

“Anti-Muslim group” — evidently the WaPo thinks it “anti-Muslim” to oppose jihad terror and the Sharia oppression of women, non-Muslims, gays, etc. That’s more revealing about them than about me.

This incident was yet another example of how the Hamas-linked Islamic supremacists of CAIR and their Useful Idiots in the Leftist media try, again and again and again, to bully and intimidate into silence not only anyone who speaks the truth about the jihad threat, but anyone remotely associated with them. With the Democrats already firmly in their camp, they’re trying now to secure the submission of the Republican Party.

It’s also an insight into the Left’s methodology: they smear, demonize and marginalize a target, and then use their own handiwork to do the same thing to someone else via guilt by association. Cruz deserves congratulations for standing firm.

Back in October 2005, Hillary Clinton and I spoke at the same event, and Hamas-linked CAIR was likewise furious. If these two wind up as the nominees, watch for this story to reappear regarding Cruz, but no one in the mainstream media will remember the Hillary one.

Ted Cruz: Other than Cigarette Smoking, the Pic is Accurate

First Breitbart and then Time reported earlier today that mysterious photoshopped posters of Ted Cruz, showing the Texas Republican senator shirtless, with edgy tattoos, smoking a cigarette, were plastered around various locations in Los Angeles, like the Beverly Hilton Hotel, late Thursday night.

Time Magazine writes: Of course, Cruz is tattooed in poster form only. Some mischief-maker posted his photoshopped (we think!) image around town ahead of a speaking engagement for the congressmen at Beverly Hills’ Claremont Institute. The event was scheduled for Saturday night.

Likely a prank, the stunt prompted a tongue-and-cheek response from the Senator:


They think it’s prank? How much do we know about Ted Cruz, really? Could it be that this picture is actually a selfie texted from his phone to a mysterious Tea Party knockout, and his official bio is nothing more than a fictionalized alternative reality?

According to our sources, Ted Cruz is actually a twin brother of Chuck Norris, and his powers extend beyond the realm of what can be grasped by mere mortals.

We know for a fact that…

– When Al Gore invented the Internet, his inbox already contained three unread emails from Ted Cruz.

– Ted Cruz has a quadruple citizenship in the U.S., Canada, Middle-earth and Westeros.

– If you superimpose Ted Cruz’s fingerprints, the resulting image will be the Seal of the President of the United States.

– When Ted Cruz got bit by a rattle snake, the snake had to sign up for Obamacare but couldn’t get through the login screen and died after a week of pain and agony in front of the computer.

– Ted Cruz has already won the presidential election in 2016 with a roundhouse kick in the polls; the pollsters just haven’t developed the technology to look that far into the future.

Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL) calls for IRS Special Prosecutor

“Please join me, Senator Ted Cruz and others in calling for the appointment of an independent special prosecutor to investigate the IRS’s illegal targeting of conservative groups,” begins a letter sent to members of the US House of Representatives by Congressman Bill Posey (R- FL District 8).

The Posey letter notes, “This past spring, we learned that the IRS used inappropriate criteria to review Tea Party and other organizations applying for tax-exempt status based upon their names and policy positions. We further learned that IRS employees illegally released donor lists of other conservative organizations.”

“As of today, not a single employee has been indicted for this offense, and the Wall Street Journal reported that the FBI does not plan to file any criminal charges. Furthermore, Ms. Lerner has invoked her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and refused to answer questions,” states Posey.

Americans are growing more concerned about a bureaucrat “culture of arrogance”. Time and again the President has failed to take action against those found to have violated their duties. It is AG Holder who is accountable to the People’s House and the people. President Obama during the interview with Bill O’Reilly stated there is not a “smidgen” of corruption at the IRS. Attorney Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, said in public testimony that the IRS scandal goes “as high as it gets.” When O’Reilly asked the President why he has not fired HHS Secretary Sebelius the President stated, “I promise you we hold people up and down the line accountable.” Apparently this does not apply to the IRS, either.

Posey concludes his letter with:

An independent special prosecutor must therefore be appointed to oversee the IRS investigation. Such a prosecutor must be given the independence to follow the facts wherever they may lead. He or she must both prosecute any and all criminal conduct and report to Congress and the American people what occurred, why it occurred, who knew about it, and what can be done to ensure it never happens again. Furthermore, this special prosecutor must be someone whose integrity is beyond reproach – and at a minimum, he or she must not be a major financial donor to either Democratic or Republican Party campaigns. The IRS, or any other agency, must not be used for political purposes.

I therefore ask that you join me in demanding that an independent special prosecutor be appointed to investigate the IRS’s illegal targeting of conservative groups.

To date the following members of the US House of Representatives have co-signed the Posey letter:

Robert Aderholt (AL-04); Andy Barr (KY-06); Kerry Bentivolio (MI-11); Jim Bridenstine (OK-1); Mo Brooks (AL-05); Michael Burgess (TX-26); Bradley Byrne (AL-01); Howard Coble (NC-06); Ron DeSantis (FL-06); Jeff Duncan (SC-04); Blake Farenthold (TX-27); Steve Fincher (TN-08); John Fleming (LA-04); Trent Franks (AZ-08); Louie Gohmert (TX-01); Paul Gosar (AZ-04); Tim Huelskamp (KS-01); Walter B. Jones (NC-3); Steve King (IA-04); James Lankford (OK-05); Robert Latta (OH-5); Billy Long (MO-07); Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03); Thomas Massie (KY-04); Tom McClintock (CA-04); Mick Mulvaney (SC-05); Alan Nunnelee (MS-01); Mike Rogers (AL-03); Thomas Rooney (FL-17); Matthew Salmon (AZ-05); Jason Smith (MO-8);Randy Weber (TX-14); Ted Yoho (FL-03)

If your Congressman is not on the list you may want to ask him or her: Why?
