The world is aflame, it is happening on Obama’s watch, the Democrats have been in power for eight years, and Americans are increasingly furious over serial failures by the regime in Washington. Talk of impeachment is a side-show. Many people say Obama should be tried for treason because he has provided aid and comfort to jihadists, our sworn enemies. How credible is this accusation? Consider recent history.
In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood is now on the run and Morsi is in prison, but Barack Obama helped Morsi come to power and propped up his Sharia-based regime by funding the Brotherhood, paving the way by helping remove Mubarak from power.
Remember that the Brotherhood is the long-standing jihadist organization that gave birth to Al Qaeda. The Brotherhood, like Iran and many others, considers the U.S. the great Satan. The Brotherhood calls for our complete annihilation. Details of some of Obama’s direct support for the Brotherhood can be studied here, here and here.
Making matters worse, Obama has welcomed Brotherhood members into our government. Many of these Brotherhood operatives hold sensitive positions inside our security apparatus. This would be comparable to FDR allowing Nazis to serve in the Defense Department in 1942.
Additionally, in an almost hysterical attempt to cobble together a cease-fire in Gaza, the Obama Administration recently sought the favor of Qatar and Turkey, both totally hostile to our ally Israel, both firm supporters of Hamas, both nation states which fund Hamas. It is as if Obama is trying to save Hamas while talking tough about supporting Israel, more evidence of this regime’s pattern of corruption and deception. This report claims Kerry and Obama are not only trying to save Hamas, they are trying to restore the Brotherhood in the process.
Furthermore, you remember Obama’s red line in Syria, the one that turned pink, and then vanished? Guess what? Funding for jihadists including Al Qaeda in Syria is also part of the treasonous Obama legacy.
Excerpt – “The Syrian opposition groups are increasingly dominated by radical Islamists, many of them foreign fighters who, the UN says, are involved in numerous crimes committed in Syria. According to estimates of defense consultancy IHS Jane’s, more than a half of the forces fighting to topple President Bashar Assad government are jihadists.”
Now that an earnest investigation into Benghazi has commenced, many observers predict we will finally get confirmation the U.S. helped transfer Libyan weapons to jihadists in Syria with Turkish assistance and that a large part of the deterioration in Benghazi at the consulate had to do with those weapons transfers.
It should be noted as well that Obama’s illegal military action to topple Qaddafi turned Libya into a war zone where tribal rivalries play out in violence across the country and where terrorists find free reign to train and wage jihad.
Finally, Obama has consistently refused to support liberation movements in Iran and elsewhere, and, he has consistently funded and supported jihadist movements as noted, including Hamas and Hezbollah. Please do not forget Obama purposefully pulled out of Iraq prematurely allowing ISIS to take half the country, slaughtering thousands.
The record is very clear. The man who would be king, one claiming to be a Christian, is in reality a jihadist sympathizer and collaborator who funds, helps and comforts our enemies, a man who therefore deserves to be charged with treason.
