Muslim Brotherhood Terror Bill Now Bipartisan

ByPamela Geller on March 10, 2016

This is long overdue.

The FBI is severed its once-close ties with the terror-tied group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, amid mounting evidence that it has links to a support network for Hamas.

The Department of Justice is sitting on a “mountain of evidence” unearthed in the largest terrorist funding trial, the Holy Land Foundation trial. CAIR, ISNA, MSA were all named un-indicted co-conspirators. Obama’s DoJ scuttled the prosecution of those groups. It’s  time for the American people to scuttle Obama’s seditious acts.

“Muslim Brotherhood Terror Bill Now Bipartisan,” By Ryan Mauro, March 9, 2016 (thanks to John):


The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act — which includes CAIR –is now cosponsored by Representative Colin C. Peterson (D-MN).

The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act now has bipartisan support with Representative Colin C. Peterson (D-MN) cosponsoring the legislation. It is now backed by 48 congressmen and senators and the House version was passed by the Judiciary Committee on February 24.

The Clarion Project thanks all our readers who responded to our request to contact their congressmen and Senators to ask for position statements and to facilitate briefings for their staff.

See below for a lists of members of Congress who have endorsed the legislation, those who have declared opposition to it and those on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee who have yet to take a position.

If passed, the legislation would state that Congress believes that the Muslim Brotherhood meets the criteria of a Foreign Terrorist Organization under section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1189).

It gives the Secretary of State 60 days to provide a detailed report explaining whether the Brotherhood meets the standard for Foreign Terrorist Organization designation and why. The legislation contains a mountain of evidence in support of this designation.

The legislation also explicitly identifies the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) as U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entities and includes evidence tying them to a Hamas support network.

The House bill (HR3892) was introduced by Rep. Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and referred to the Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security. Three members of the subcommittee are cosponsors of the bill (Reps. King, Buck and Trott). The Senate version (S2230) was introduced by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and referred to the Foreign Relations Committee, where only Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) has signed on. Johnson is also the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

We encourage readers to contact their representatives and Senators and ask them for a position statement. Please forward any official statement to the Clarion Project so we can update readers on where they stand on the Muslim Brotherhood. A statement of opposition is just as important as a statement of support.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    How much evidence is required to prove, validate, confirm and otherwise demonstrate that islam is determined to overthrow the American government, imposing shari’a on America, will the subhuman tenets thereof? Are Americans that uninterested in their own fate, and that of their children to meekly submit to atrocities that even the genocidal maniacs of the twentieth century found abhorrent?

    • Don Grantham

      ‘There are none so blind as those who will not see. The most deluded people are those who choose to ignore what they already know’.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        The imam of the white mosque is aware of what islam is all about, as a faithful muslim, he follows it, the death of anyone, muslims or not is irrelevant, jihad is everything to the fool.

        • Don Grantham

          Obama’s version of the ‘virtual reality headset’.

      • Lisa Miller

        He does not see it because he is part of it. He wants America to become a third world county and to see the overthrow of our constitution and bill of rights. He is a narcissistic megalomaniac intent on our demise.

    • berserker

      They have never hidden their agenda:
      – Yet we do not take them seriously. We keep feeding the crocodiles.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Liberal progressive political correctness is particularly stupid. They think that everyone shares their perverted values, then are shocked when they are killed because as it turns out, muslims don’t.

    Rick Scott Has Mic Shut Off When He Refuses to Say That Muslims Don’t Hate America

    by J.D. Durkin | 8:04 am, March 10; 2016

    This is probably not the TV hit that Florida Governor Rick Scott had in mind this morning.

    The whole thing lasted only three and a half minutes, as the conversation turned towards the role of Islam and the view that Muslims have of the United States. When Governor Scott outright refused to refute the idea that Muslims hate America, Morning Joe cohost Mika Brzezinskiabruptly cut him down, had his mic shut off, and cut to commercial.

    • Don Grantham

      Oh, I’d love to hear whatever was said post-interview…

    • BrunoPBuhr

      Typical PC response to the truth, end freedom of speech condemn those who disagree.

  • Rick Smith

    It will soon be time to investigate those quislings in the FBI who were responsible for those close ties with the enemy.

    • BrunoPBuhr

      With a perp walk when the truth comes out!

    • joe1429

      Go Trump!!! In 2016 and 2020!!!

    TRUMP: ‘Islam hates us’

    “There’s a tremendous hatred. And we have to be very vigilant,” Trump told Cooper on Wednesday.

    “We have to be very careful,” he added. “And we can’t allow people coming into this country who have this hatred of the United States and of people that are not Muslim.”;_ylt=A0LEV0ZN_uFW1p8AWmBXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTEyNmJjZWttBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDQjE3OTJfMQRzZWMDc2M-

    • joe1429

      The ONLY candidate with the Balls to tell it like it is!!!!

    • berserker

      And what does Killary say: Islam has a yearning for peace.

  • Judi

    The muslim in the WH will use his “executive order” and override any decision the FBI takes to designate CAIR as a terror group.

  • BrunoPBuhr

    Forcing the DOJ to ignore terrorism support by CAIR should be a criminal act. Ignoring evidence that proves participation with terrorist organizations is business as usual with the Obama administration, it doesn’t fit their storyline. We are at risk because of these criminal acts!

  • If your local media quotes CAIR, let them know

  • SueBerryhill

    Oh, those poor MB members who are employed by the Obama admin, they might lose their jobs. :D. If they’re not citizens can they be deported, too? Please, please? And maybe they’ll take Obama with them, since he likes Muslims so much?

  • Jay Dillon

    Muslim Brotherhood has operatives inside the Obama White House. These MB operatives must be removed from office; Obama himself should be removed along with them, as a traitor who is in fact a Muslim Brotherhood enemy operative probably backed by Saudi Arabian totalitarian fascists and oil magnates. In addition to the Muslim Brotherhood, we need a similar designation for Jamaat ul-Fuqra if JUF is not already included as an associated MB terrorist training organization operating inside the US homeland.

    • I have know this for the last 8 years

    • munchenfez

      If Cankles gets to be POTUS you will get Abedin too. Look at her parents.

      • joe1429

        hahaha Cankles lmao

  • Drew the Infidel

    What, it took them this long to realize the murder and mayhem in which these ragheads engage is indiscriminate?

  • joe1429

    Its About Time!!!

  • MotherGoos3

    My worthless, Iran appeasing rino senator Bob Corker is too stupid to be the chair of the SFRC – No way he’ll do the right thing, despite calls from constituents.
