During an interview on Newsmax TV with Steve Malzberg, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) spoke of a meeting she attended as part of the House Republicans with former Vice President Dick Cheney. According to Bachmann, Cheney told the group that the Muslim Brotherhood is the umbrella for all of the Islamic jihad organizations. It’s really nice to hear that Cheney is expressing this view but why did he wait until 2014?
Upon hearing Cheney say this, Bachmann informs viewers that she asked him for his opinion on a bill that would identify the Muslim Brotherhood and all its affiliated groups as a terrorist organization. According to Bachmann, Cheney told her he would sign it in a minute. Upon hearing this, Bachmann informed Cheney that she has already put forth such a bill.
It is indeed VERY significant that such a subject would be discussed among the House Republican caucus and even bigger that Bachmann would make it known. Cheney giving this matter voice also does tangible damage to all of those Republican politicians in 2012 who not only did not stand by Bachmann over her concerns about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration but who stood with the Brotherhood and against Bachmann.
Republicans who stood against Bachmann on the issue of Huma Abedin were:
Senator John McCain (AZ)
Senator Scott Brown (MA)
Senator Marco Rubio (FL)
Speaker John Boehner (OH)
Rep. Mike Rogers (MI)
Rep. James Sensenbrenner (WI)
Rep. Mike Simpson (ID)
Rep. Richard Hanna (NY)
Ed Rollins (Bachmann’s former campaign chief)
WORD of warning… At about the 7:40 mark, Malzberg actually invokes the name Huma Abedin and the video appears to stop. Relax, it’s not a conspiracy (at least, we don’t think so). Just let it roll. It will pick back up at the 7:51 mark:
As Shoebat.com reported when Bachmann put forth the bill, whether it passes or not, each member who votes on it will have the opportunity to be on the right or wrong side of history – Churchill v. Chamberlain, Allies v. Axis, good v. evil.
If you start the above interview at the beginning, Bachmann said she has been warning about ISIS for two years and that when she consulted with the FBI, was told that Americans who leave her state to fight with ISIS would be allowed to return to Minnesota. This stunning information prompted Bachmann to author a bill that would prevent such brazen breeches to national security and strip away the citizenship of any American that decides to leave the country and fight with ISIS.
