Circanada has written a series of articles about Barack Obama and his alleged possible ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Following is an insightful piece by author Leni Friedman Valenta, showing the orchestration of a chain of events, the repercussions of which we continue to see.

Ms Valenta is a graduate of Brandeis University and holds a Masters from the Yale School of Drama in play writing.  Her  articles have appeared with BESA Center for Strategic Studies in Israel, The National Interest, The Aspen Review, The Middle East Quarterly, Kyiv Post,  and others.  She and her husband have a small institute, formerly called the Institute of Post-Communist Studies but presently known as the Valenta Center for Strategic Issues.  The website , which she manages, is Valenta-center.com. 

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.

Article

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 a supporter 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  [their spelling] 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 Muammar 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 advance that 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” [his pronunciation] 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.

Conclusion


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.

RECENT NEWS.

Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin -- Are leaders of Black Lives Matters Marxists or Leninists?.

                BLACK LIVES MATTER'S FOUNDERS -- NOT MARXISTS BUT                                           MORE LIKE BOLSHEVIKS

                                                  By Dr. Jiri Valenta and Leni Friedman Valenta,  

                                                                      August 11, 2020   
     

  Patrisse Cullors, one of the founders and leaders of Black Lives Matter (thereafter BLM) maintains that she and her co-leaders are “Marxist revolutionaries.” “Myself and Alicia [Garza] in particular, we're trained organizers,” said Cullors. “…We are super versed on ideological theories."

 But are they really? In their thoughts and policies, are they even familiar with Karl Marx’s writings, and intellectual development? They seem not to even know, for example, that he was an admirer of Abe Lincoln and corresponded with him. Else, why would BLMs want to tear down or vandalize his Mt. Rushmore effigy or the statue of his victorious Civil War commander Ulysses S. Grant? 

Moreover, the kind of marches and street violence we have witnessed are actions seemingly rooted not in Marxian theory, but in that of the Bolshevism of Vladimir Lenin. Unlike Marx, the Bolsheviks add to theory a focus on overthrowing the existing regime, canceling our present culture and replacing its power structures with their own. Indeed, it seems more and more credible that what we are witnessing may be the prelude to an attempted violent coup.

Sadly the BLM leaders and their starry-eyed followers know so little about how and why Marx admired Abraham Lincoln. At the end of the Civil War, Marx wrote a letter to Lincoln from Europe on behalf of the International Working Men’s association. Congratulating him for his re-election by a large majority, he stated, “If resistance to the Slave Power was the reserved watchword of your first election, the triumphant war cry of your re-election is ‘Death to Slavery."

In the same document, Marx explained his admiration in terms of class war and the betterment of the lot of the working class and argued, “that Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation and the North’s arming of Black soldiers transformed the Civil War from a purely constitutional war to preserve the Union, into a revolutionary class war. 

“The workingmen of Europe,” wrote Marx, “feel sure that, as the American War of Independence initiated a new era of ascendancy for the middle class, so the American Antislavery War will do [the same] for the working classes…They consider it an earnest of the epoch to come that it fell to the lot of Abraham Lincoln, the single-minded son of the working class, to lead his country through the matchless struggle for the rescue of an enchained race and the reconstruction of a social world.” [B]  

Karl Marx on the America’s founding fathers:  BLM leaders and activists are likely familiar with Karl Marx’s 1848 pamphlet, the Communist Manifesto, and even perhaps his huge and largely boring book, Das Capital, dealing with the economics of capitalism. However, like most Americans, they are are not familiar with the fact that Marx was for years a prolific columnist dealing with geopolitics and international relations for the Republican newspaper the New York Tribune from1852-1864. (The Republicans then were the party of Lincoln).

They would undoubtedly be surprised to learn that Marx, writing for the Tribune, “saw the Civil war as an extension of the American Revolution of 1776!” Nor is BLM obviously aware that some of those founding fathers battled to end slavery in America prior to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. But the slave states would not otherwise agree to present to England America’s power as the “We the people of the United States...” One must thus assume that if he were alive today, Marx would be simply shocked at witnessing the BLM”s indiscriminate attacks on statues of our founding fathers.

 Marx’s was a racist! Economic determinism also influenced Marx’s views in his writing about the 1840’s U.S. war with Mexico. But what is apparently not known to BLM is that Marx was a racist! In his 1979 book, Karl Marx: Racist, Nathaniel Weyl, a former communist, found that when the United States annexed California after the 1848 Mexican War, Marx wrote, “Is it a misfortune that magnificent California was seized from the lazy Mexicans who did not know what to do with it?”

 In a letter to Engels, Marx referred to his socialist political adversary, Ferdinand Lassalle, thus: “It is now completely clear to me that he, as is proved by his [Lassalle’s] cranial formation and his hair, descends from the Negroes who had joined Moses’ exodus from Egypt, assuming that his mother or grandmother on the paternal side had not interbred with a nigger. Now this union of Judaism and Germanism with a basic Negro substance must produce a peculiar product. The obtrusiveness of the fellow is also nigger-like.” 

Neither did Jews escape his scorching pen, although Marx himself was Jewish. In his 1844 antisemitic essay on the Jewish Question,”he asked: “What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money. … Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist.

A Specter is haunting America.” In his Communist Manifesto, Marx stated that the specter of communism was haunting Europe. He seems not to have envisioned what kind of ghost it really would become under Stalin, Mao, North Korea’s Kims, Castro and Chavez. That ghost from hell turned the beautiful dream of a more just world turning into the nightmare of a totalitarian one. Now that same ghost has crossed the Atlantic and haunts America.

 As we have demonstrated BLM is not primarily shaped by Marxist views (certainly not his racist ones). The views of its leaders more resemble the views of Bolshevik Lenin -- particularly those on how to stage a political coup. Lenin was indeed a brilliant thinker, and not only on socialist revolution, as he claimed, but on how to push the less radical and more humane Mensheviks aside, even though his own Bolsheviks were in the minority.  

 It was Lenin, not Marx, who promulgated the need to build a vanguard party as an organizational necessary vehicle in attaining to power. Turning itself into an elitist, secret well organized body, that vanguard would lead the charge, secretly and painstakingly developing a strategy of taking over the existing regime by obtaining the support of the press and public medias and by dismantling the power instruments of the bourgeoisie regime, such as the police.

   What are we seeing? Do we really still have a media that allows everyone’s views to be seen and heard without censorship or punishment. Or is it more truthful to say that the once free press in which we gloried, is fast is fast disappearing? Opposition websites are increasingly blocked and vanishing, media people are being fired for small affronts,“fact checkers” funded by liberal billionaires, usually support the Democrats are getting so smug they often don’t even explain some of their rulings; they simply write “true or false.”  

 Some of what happened in Russia as Bolsheviks organized 1917 their October coup is now happening in America. Under Lenin, the Russian vanguard party, the Bolsheviks, not only preached social change, but agitated for the dismantling of the police and other instruments that could be used to jeopardize their violent takeover. Is that why one of BLM’s most repeated slogan is “defund the police?” Do you not know they have boasted of creating their own militias? 

In the case of Russia’s Bolsheviks, the Iskra, or spark was the so-named, Bolshevik newspaper that set fired up the far left. Here the Iskra was the violent death of George Floyd, several weeks ago, killed by a policeman. But the BLM leaders are not really interested in improving or reforming the work of the police. The key objective behind their call for racial justice and socialism is to gain power on a national level. Like Lenin, they believe in the cancelation of America’s history and culture as well as the destruction of America’s police and military power, prelude to establishing their own. That is why they seek to destroy statues of historical figures of the past that Marx and Lincoln viewed as heroic.

If the BLM leaders knew about Marx’s racist views concerning Mexicans and Jews, one envisages they would have denounced him. If he were alive, he likely would have supported Trump’s wall, though Trump has raised it not out of racism, but to keep out drug lords, terrorists and illegals. The fact is that if they have anything in common with Marx, it is the virulently anti-Semitic views they share with him, demonstrated by their venting their hatred of Jews and Israel in some of their protest marches.  

As The Jerusalem Post has reported, “Ongoing demonstrations across the United States have re-energized the intersectional solidarity between those protesting anti-Black racism in America and Boycott Divestment Sanctions [BDS] organizations’ demands to “Free Palestine from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea”– a clarion call to dismantle the State of Israel.”  They add that the BDS has also “ratcheted up racial tensions and anti-Semitic agitation” by incredibly accusing Israel of complicity in the George Floyd murder by a policeman.”

   All in all, it is misleading and wrong to let BLMs cover themselves in the mantles of Marx, a complex revolutionary thinker with at times differing views. A genuine believer in upgrading the life of the working class, he was not a like Lenin or the Mensheviks, a believer in the dictatorship of a vanguard party. If alive today he would be more associated with the descendants of the social democrats who held that socialism should be build by ballots, and not bullets.

  The Bolsheviks have little to with that by and large. No wonder that Marx claimed, that “everything is in doubt. But he also disliked groups that sought to take on his mantle. As he wrote to two French socialists, "If anything is certain, it is that I am not a Marxist."
