Allen West calls on president to cut off aid to egypt and repudiate Muslim Brotherhood in wake of election results

I just watched Republican Congressman David Drier on Fox News hail the first steps of democracy in Egypt and the historic nature of this election. Ugh. But fortunately not all see it that way as Allen West has made clear in a Facebook post this morning after the Muslim Brotherhood candidate was announced victorious. He refers to this as a “radical Islamic nightmare”:

A year ago there were those of us who warned the Obama Administration of a Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt. We were castigated as alarmists and loose cannons. Today our predictions have come to reality and the ominous specter reminding us of the Iranian revolution is evident. The Muslim Brotherhood claimed they would not run a presidential candidate. Clearly the Arab Spring is nothing more than a radical Islamic nightmare. Now we need to unequivocally reiterate our support to the Coptic Christians and Israel. What an incredible foreign policy faux pas by the second coming of President Jimmy Carter, the Obama Administration. I call upon President Barack Obama to cut off American foreign aid to Egypt, denounce the results of this election, repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood, and all radical Islamist political entities.

    Allen West is right however judging from obama’s past behavior we can pretty much predict that obama will do the reverse of what West suggested.

    • GiantM

      And then some! Like inviting terrorists to the White House for tea!

  • actionsspeaklouder

    I believe this is just the way Obama wanted it to turn out in Egypt. Obama is a traitor.

  • SpikeT

    West is out front again. Life in the balance requires a chorus in congress to join him!!

  • RocklinConservative

    What a hugely strong stand! Way to go Rep. West! By the time we get to say “I told you so”, not that that is what I want, it will be too late. I used to like Rep. Dreier but I think this is a prime example of why so many conservatives feel the GOP left them.

    • Patriot077

      Isn’t Dreier the head of the rules committee? Seems that he is gutless and unwilling to find ways to get legislation up for a vote. Steve King tried to get a resolution passed to stop the funding on O-care but no, Dreier played dead and into the hands of the Pelosi machine. Dummy. His strings may be being pulled by Boehner, I’ll admit.

      • HarrietHT2

        So Drier’s a man without principle. Let’s tell it like it is. And let’s unload him and Repubs like him at the first opportunity.

        • RocklinConservative

          He’s retiring this year.

  • RocklinConservative

    I read somewhere last year that the guy that was the prime instigator in this was actually brought over, quietly, during the Bush presidency for training so for some reason it appears that this is what our government wanted.

    This was suppose to be in reply to actionsspeaklouder.

  • As much as I love Mr. West, this has been their plan all along. No mistake about it. And that is real nightmare. What will happen in Libya?…and now that Saudis are funding the “rebels” in Syria, what ruling figure will emerge I wonder… hm, perhaps the MB or will that be just another ironic coincidence? Though I do agree that watching a Congressman all-but flashing pom-poms and doing air-splits on TV with total elation was sickening! That Morsi won in a “secular” nation who made him promises on many visits to Egypt over the past few months somehow seemed to be a sign of good faith? Should we check his bank accounts for large contributions? Or perhaps speak with Huma Abedin, Hillary’s left-hand, and find out how her family ties in with this? Huma’s links to a family that is directly tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, including her brother and mother, creates a question that no one on earth can easily answer.

      Welcome to the RS community. You’re off to a kick-ass start!!

      The left played this off as a march to freedom and democracy, and they will claim this is what happened. They don’t even wanna know what evils they have unleashed between Libya, Egypt and soon to be Syria. Christians better run for their lives.

      As for Obama, it was intentional….as you say.

      • Oh, thank you, Kong! I’ve been a visitor for quite a while and always enjoy reading the scoops selections and discussions from non-sheeple. It’s so refreshing and invigorating!

        • kong1967

          Ah!! A perfect chance to bring up a question that I thought of while I was at work today.

          So, I’m pretty sure that the Muslim Brotherhood will install Sharia Law in Egypt. I heard on the radio during lunch (news flash) that this is Egypt’s first democratic election, and it hit me. What are the chances of there ever being another one? It’s not like Sharia Law is compatible with any other type of system or ideology. Once you have Sharia Law, how can you have another democratic election?

    • I agree that Huma Abedin (Mrs. Anthony Weiner) is key to this.

  • 911Infidel

    Waste of time. Obama is no friend of freedom. I would go even further. Any Muslim nation that is unwilling to denounce Hamas, Hizbollah, AQ, the subjigation of women and the stifling of dissent on Islam, should be cut off from all US aid.

    • kong1967

      Lol, how are we going to cut off the aid to Obama’s friends?

      • 911Infidel

        By first cutting off Obama in November.

        • kong1967


      • WordsFailMe

        Make feeding snakes illegal?

        • kong1967

          In other words, make Obama follow Michelle’s diet she wants to impose on us?

  • Nukeman60

    What an incredible foreign policy faux pas by the second coming of President Jimmy Carter, the Obama Administration‘ – West

    ‘second coming of J.C.’ – a subliminal twist on the phrase to show Obama is as the antichrist. I love his boldness. I’m glad to hear he is publicly condemning this situation, even though I certainly expected it and agree.

  • sara holy land

    Right, as usual.
    This time, I wish he was not right,unfortunately.

  • kong1967

    How a Republican can call this the first steps to democracy is beyond me. The Muslim Brohterhood has lied from day one, and they will impose Sharia Law as sure as I’m standing.

    Obama won’t pay any attention to West and this will be spun as democracy and a future for freedom. Mark my words, this will be used as another success story by the left.

    • GiantM


  • “I call upon President Barack Obama to cut off American foreign aid to Egypt, denounce the results of this election, repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood, and all radical Islamist political entities.”

    Well said, but I think you’ll stand a better chance of having Obama do the limbo with Iran’s “President” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Obama would never do all that because, if he did, he would have to admit that he was all wrong about the “Arab Spring.” And the Messiah would never, ever, do that. Only Romney winning in November will help get us out of this mess.

  • librtifirst

    Good for West. He is sounding a lot like Col. Shaffer. Would like to see Shaffer run for congress.

  • poljunkie

    The White House has probably already called to congratulate the new winner.

    • pdxlady

      They already have…Drudge has a link to Politico saying,

      “The White House congratulated Egypt’s president-elect Mohamed Morsi on his victory in that country’s presidential election, calling it a “milestone” in the country’s transition to democracy.”

      “President Obama called Morsi Sunday evening, telling him that the United States would stand by Egypt in its transitional period — and said that he looked forward to working together.”

      “”We look forward to working together with President-elect Morsi and the government he forms, on the basis of mutual respect, to advance the many shared interests between Egypt and the United States,” press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement.”

      • poljunkie


  • Obama WANTS the Muslim Brotherhood in power. There was a good interview on Morning Joe when Mubarak was thrown out. This guy stated point blank that (paraphrasing) “we now know that Obama was trying to get the Muslim Brotherhood in power, but that the Army controls support and they won’t go for it.” So they dropped it. But now, it’s Obama’s wildest dream coming true. He won’t do a damn thing. It also explained why Obama told Mubarak to step aside.

    • librtifirst

      He basically did the same thing in Libya, but actually used our military to accomplish it. The US record in the middle east isn’t very good concerning this kind of thing. Just look at what we are getting for our efforts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Syria is going to be the same. If we ever hit Iran, it will be the same as the rest. I say “let Israel deal with middle eastern terrorism, and get out of the way”. We fund Israel, but also fund their enemies.

  • piperlord

    Way back starting with Tunisia we knew the sole purpose (oh yes, on purpose, in the PLAN, etc.) was to put the MB in charge all throughout the mideast, Britain, France, Belgium now, and scariest of all – a TOWN NEAR YOU. These ows’s are just immature maniac animals going around the globe, paid by all sorts of front groups causing chaos so the top has to come down – or not – they’ll just ‘live’ out their lives this chaotic way til they get killed… Someone needs to get in the WH in January (maybe sooner after the whole regime there now does the perp walk prior to Nov!), get rid of – or greatly diminish because of closely watching ALL mosques in America (no such thing as moderate islam, sorry!) BAN all aspects of Sharia Law in America. Close border to ANY immigrants until we close the deficit and get organized again. STOP the madness that is being done everywhere on purpose by all the dictators in the world, starting in DC.

  • wodiej

    I agree Colonel but we shouldn’t hold our breath waiting.

  • We are entering (already in?) a new dark age? This time it’s Liberalism and it’s pandering to Islam who exploit liberals like “useful idiots” Liberals are too stupid to read history and realize they are the first on the execution block should the Islamists win! We are indeed in a dark time in our history… But we are on God’s side! And therefore we must and shall prevail!!!

  • Constance

    It’s time to stop calling on the president for anything. It’s time to ignore him, and take control in the House. Cut off funding tomorrow – Monday. Just close the checkbook, fly the big middle finger, and ignore any and all protests by the Obama Administration and the loser republicans and insane dems. Stop talking. Start doing. All I keep hearing is speeches and tough talk from conservatives, but nothing of substance ever gets done.

  • nehemiahreturns

    That will happen when hell freezes over, but God bless Allen West for challenging Obama on this. I do believe it will be one more nail in the coffin of his presidency.

  • Sober_Thinking

    God bless Allen West. He should be our President.

    STOP ALL money going to Egypt NOW!

  • A lot of us knew a year ago this would be the way it would turn out. Colonel West is to be commended on his efforts to inform the people. He’s a leader and a true statesman. I just can’t say that enough.

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    Allen West a true patriot!
    We have a awful congress, need to clean out the bad one’s both sides. Wish Allen West would have ran for President.

  • jimmie smith

    I’m just a joe blow citizen, (better not get any jokes about this)…even”, “I” can see the insanity of this…I may just as well give money to the D.N.C….no difference!

  • “Hope and Change”…Still? Looking Back at 4 Years of “Change” — Fox and Friends — 5-30-12 Terrorists on our southern border, Other than Mexican (OTM) posing as Mexicans that are from Yeomen and Syria are sneaking in weekly. <1001 reasons with sources why only idiots or Communists would vote for Obama.

    Evidence of Middle Eastern intruders (prayer mats and Qurans) have been found. Dirty bombs in suitcases are no assumed to be inside the US presently.

  • Lawyer and politicians are not the solution to our current foreign policy issues. We need to walk softly but carry a big stick, trust but verify and stop kicking the can down the rod or appeasing barbarians. Build-up-to-WW3-CIA-Predicts-War-By-June-Iran-Pledges-Revenge-Against-EU-Embargo Obummer & Slow Joe Biden are not up to the job of protecting US.

  • Dave B

    Obama is a marxist and muslim, his goal is to help destroy the west and create an Islamic caliphate.

  • richarddonna

    The election in Egypt in 2012 is identical to the election in Germany I. 1933. The result will be war and thousands of dead Jews.

  • TJinNJ

    Drier is just another RINO tool used by GOP Islamist Power Broker Grover Norquist (G.W.Bush’s Buddy – who claimed the Muslim vote, who he pandered for, got Bush elected in 2000) and Suhail Khan are as willing to sell this country out as the demonic-rats. Khan’s late father was imam at a mosque in Santa Clara, California, which once hosted a visit by Ayman al-Zawahiri, al-Qaeda’s number two leader. Something stinks…Keep up the fight Mr. West.

  • We owe 16 trillion dollars. We don’t have any money to be giving to ANYBODY.

    Any money given to Egypt or anybody else is taken from you in the form of dollar debasement. The purchasing power of your wages, savings and benefits is reduced as your wealth is transferred overseas to corrupt governments and dictators.

  • This is what democracy looks like when lies and distortions are portrayed as truths, and the people vote in evil, and live to regret it. Can anyone say Adolf Hitler!

  • bobemakk

    I agree, these people are our enemies, why do we send them aid????
