Congresswoman Michele Bachmann joined Glenn on radio today to discuss GBTV’s new documentary, Rumors of War III, which debuted last night.
“I watched every second of the special you did last night,” the Congresswoman told Glenn. “It was spellbinding.”
Congresswoman Bachmann sits on the intelligence committee, and told Glenn’s listeners that she can confirm every word from Rumors of War III was accurate. “It’s absolutely profound,” she said.
The Congresswoman told Glenn that she wants people to be encouraged, because there are members of Congress that are on this issue. “I personally spend twenty-five to thirty hours every week just dealing with this problem. I think this is the number one issue facing our country right now. People have no idea how far, how deep, how wide the Muslim Brotherhood has penetrated the upper echelons here in the United States,” Congresswoman Bachmann explained. “Martin Dempsey, the top military man in the United States, the chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, just said yesterday he ordered government censorship and a purging of any reference to Islam or Islamic training out of the military training material.”
She added that the removal of Islam and Islamic training also occurred in the FBI last October. She told Glenn that when this occurred, she demanded that she be allowed to review the material that was purged from the FBI. These materials are training our FBI agents how to spot the motivation behind terrorists.
“Just think about this, the Muslim Brotherhood has the power and the influence to purge out of the military, the FBI, and the State Department, any reference to Islam. This is profound, and this is done, in particular, because our Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed an executive order against defamation of religion,” the Congresswoman told Glenn, “but it's really all about Islam. To make sure that we purge out of our government any reference to Islam in a negative way. Damn what the facts are on the ground, there is a purging that's going on. But, it is censorship, because, by definition, censorship means the government withholding information, and that's what we're seeing play out.”
Congresswoman Bachmann told Glenn that she has been organizing a group in Congress that meets to discuss this issue on a weekly basis. Rep. Allen West, who was part of last night’s documentary, is one of the members of Congress is this group. She explained that, essentially, they’re a caucus that focuses on the issue of penetration from the Muslim Brotherhood and jihad in the capital and in our government. “Our goal is to educate every member that we can. We want every member of Congress to watch your documentary,” she told Glenn. “Frank Gaffney also has a documentary series. You had the finest people on the couch last night – Andy McCarthy, you had General Boykin, Diana West. You had your own adviser on national security. There are really good people, and they’re all trustworthy, and that’s what we’re trying to do – educate people.”
Congresswoman Bachmann went on to explain that as a response to what was discussed in Rumors of War, they are in the process of putting a letter together to Hilary Clinton at the State Department, the chairs of the Committee of the State Department that oversee them, the Intelligence Committee, and also to the military. They are demanding that the Inspector General of each of these departments look over the penetrations of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Michele told Glenn that there are at least six people that they want a full investigation of. “Why are these people senior advisors to the president? Why are these people involved in actual on the government payroll in the State Department and in the Pentagon? We are demanding answers,” she said.
Glenn responded by saying that because the media is so involved with CAIR and ISNA, that this has to become a viral issue. He also added that there needs to be a way for the public to know who is working on this issue, so that the people can support them and get behind them.
“It is critical that people know who is working on this in D.C., because I have no doubt that there will be shenanigans with our elections,” Congresswoman Bachmann responded. “Right now it is civilization jihad. That was the term used last night on your couch. That exactly defines what this is. This is the enemy within to destroy our western civilization, and we’re being told to avert our gaze.”
Congresswoman Bachmann compared what we are being told to do right now, ignore the threats that are right in front of us, to what history has taught us will happen when we do this. “From my perspective our current president and the administration are the most dangerous on national security of any that we have ever had in the United States. They have literally opened the floodgate and they are allowing these people to come in,” she told Glenn.
Glenn asked the Congresswoman about the involvement of the President. What are we to think he is doing by allowing these things to go on along our border and in our government?
The Congresswoman explained that this is why the caucus she has organized will be calling individuals that need to be investigated by name. For example, she told Glenn, “our Secretary of State in the State Department is working with Tariq Ramadan. His grandfather started the Muslim Brotherhood and has terrorist ties to Hamas. He’s an advisor. He is on a committee advising our government. This will be in a letter that I am sending out and that I’ll be asking other members of Congress to sign onto for the Inspector General to answer the question: Why is this individual advising our Secretary of State and the President of the United States?”
Glenn explained that there is no way for the President to untangle himself for this. “He has just said he's going to help the small businesses through the Muslim Brotherhood. So there's another connection. He's also just said it's an end of the War on Terror,” Glenn said.
“I think we should take the Obama administration at their word. If you think truly and if you were saying it through your legitimate government channels that the war on terror is over, then I demand today that every service member in Afghanistan come home, today,” Congresswoman Bachmann said to Glenn. “But I was in Afghanistan this weekend, Glenn. I stood over the bed of a soldier in ICU whose legs had just been blown off in an explosion two hours earlier. I prayed for him. I will tell you the war on terror is not over. But, if the war on terror is over, then I demand that we disband the TSA at the airport today – if it's over, disband it. If it's over, take down all the barriers here in Washington, D.C.”
They went on to discuss President Obama’s record with the Muslim Brotherhood and his first foreign policy speech at the Center of Islamic Thought and Learning in Cairo, where he didn’t invite the President of the country he was speaking in [Mubarak].
Glenn explained that this documentary is the greatest gift to Mitt Romney in this election, and urged listeners to share it with their friends. To learn on to tweet, Facebook, and other ways to share Rumors of War III go here.
