Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) chose to not run for another term, and will be retiring next month from the House. She has been a class act; someone who actually walks the walk. Michele was one of Obamacare’s harshest critics. Regardless of whether you agree with her politics, or positions on issues, she is someone who was genuine and stood for what she believed. We wish her all the best in her life after being a Congresswoman.
The top U.S. intelligence official, in a memo to staff obtained by Fox News, praised his analysts for their work bringing attention to the Islamic State’s gains over the past two years — as Republican lawmakers likewise jumped to their defense after President Obama claimed they “underestimated” the threat.
I’m no fan of retired Lieutenant General James Clapper…and thought he knowingly mislead Congress about some of the intelligence Community’s (IC) activities. That said, it wasn’t his fault that he was put between a rock and a hard place. Again, LTG Clapper is put in the same position by his boss, Obama. And, I think this shows leadership on his part, sending this memo to his staff members. So, good on him.
As for what Obama knew about ISIS/ISIL.. Its clear he knew about them, and the threat they posed, for WELL over a year. That much we know for sure. And, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) says SHE (as a member of Congress) was aware of ISIS for almost TWO years…and she noted that the President has access to MUCH more information about such things than members of Congress do…which is also true. Given the two, I’d trust the Congresswoman, who isn’t running for re-election and has nothing to lose, ALL day long over Obama.
Gotta love Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN)! And, its certainly a creative solution we can use until we BUILD THE WALL!!! Of course, any such bill would probably never even pass the GOP controlled House. And, even if it did, it’d be dead on arrival in Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-NV) Senate. But, I give Michele kudos for stirring things up and offering a creative idea to the mess that is our southern border. Maybe include it in the next go around of so-called “comprehensive immigration reform,” whatever the heck that means..
Excellent!! Good for Michele Bachmann, and these other members of Congress for introducing this. Its long over due. But, better late than never. The Muslim Brotherhood is just another extreme Islamic terrorist organization like Al Qaeda, ISIS, the Taliban, and so on. Like I said, its long overdue. But, glad to see these members of Congress pushing this bill.
