Kirsten Powers excuses funding Muslim Brotherhood, says we are funding Egyptian government

I do like Kirsten Powers but I don’t like her logic here. She suggested tonight that Obama didn’t wake up one day and decide to fund the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization, but rather he is funding Egypt as we have for many years and it’s dishonest to suggest otherwise:

So is Obama stupid, ignorant or is he willfully sending 1.5 billion to a government run by the Muslim Brotherhood? It can’t be all of the above. Now that Egypt has a new government shouldn’t we re-evaluate whether we want to fund it? Why send 1.5 billion to Islamic terrorist just because we’ve always funded Egypt’s government with aid packages? Or would Kirsten’s position the same if Al Qaeda were elected in Egypt and Obama sent them 1.5 billion? I’d hardly think she’d approve of that, but she’d likely say he didn’t know what he was doing or something.

  • Obama doesn’t want to let a crisis go to waste. So when the entire system changes, why stop the flow of money?

    Heck, step it up. Egypt, you didn’t build those pyramids. Our government did. Or something.

    • toongoon

      That money oughta buy plenty of wax to cover those big eyesores. That way they won’t be doing it themselves.

      • They should hire Christo to cover them up with canvas.

    • kong1967

      How long do you think it will be before they cover the pyramids in wax? The muslims already threatened to do it.

      • Where in the heck would they get that much wax, and do they have no idea about wax and heat? Very strange, those imams.

        Of course, it could be a terrible translation. Maybe they meant they would give those pyramids several whacks.

        If the Egyptians put up with that, they deserve the all ridicule that attends.

        • kong1967

          Lol, I never got the connection between wax and the pyramids anyway. Why not just tear them down? In any case, I think we can forget about tourism to Egypt in the future. That is, if you like your head attached to your body.

  • EdHerold

    Kirsten Powers had Weiner – How can anybody take her seriously!

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      Kirsten Powers is one of the dumbest analysts on Fox’s dime.

      • kong1967

        I think Juan Williams and Bob Beckel are a lot worse…..or even Alan Colmes.

        • E. Lee Zimmerman

          Well … could be. I can’t tell you the last time I even listened to Juan Williams. I turned Fox off whenever he’s on. Same with Beckel, but I tend to think Beckel’s problem isn’t so much ignorance as it is sexism. Alan? Meh. He’s mostly harmless these days. But Kirsten I’ve watched since she’s come on there, and methinks there isn’t much gray matter behind those deer-in-the-headlight eyes of hers.

          • kong1967

            Methinks you’re funny. That was good.

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    Beg to differ he knows exactly what he is doing. Most can see it if they chose to. No more excuses for this guy and his corrupt lawless administration

  • sjmom


    Kate makes Kirsten look foolish in this clip, just as Obama does each time he opens his mouth. Whenever a liberal tries to be logical they fail because using the words “liberal” and “logical” in the same sentence is an oxymoron. They are those who “feel” not “think”; hence, no rationality in their arguments. They do make me scratch my proverbial head at times. Look at Madame Pelosi; the farther left the less logical.

    • WordsFailMe

      Liberalism is a non-rational form of political action whose noise and threats and foolishness mask the action of the coldly rational back end consolidation of power. People like Kristen will only live as long as they are useful. After the revolution, rarely are such emotional pod-people like this girl useful. Here today, gone tomorrow.

    • Rshill7

      “Proverbial head” 🙂

  • Nukeman60

    Yeah, I watched that live and I was waiting for someone, anyone, to ask her why we didn’t reevaluate the money. But, of course, since we are already giving it, there’s no sense in stopping just because a terrorist organization takes over. No wonder we give so much money overseas and no wonder it’s all wasted.

    I need an aspirin.

    • warpmine

      We’re sending $1.5 billion but how much will it cost us with interest to borrow it for an unappreciative bunch of barbarians. The whole idea to begin with was supporting the military that supported Mubaric who kept the treaty. It was not there to support radicals that were going to toss the treaty.

      Second, do we know that Kirsten is actually capable of understanding the parent org that started this whole mess to begin with. I mean she act like she doesn’t know the affiliations with all those researchers around her. Willfully ignorant just as Juan Williams is.

    • sDee

      From the perspective of a globalist or a post-American it is well spent. Double bang for the buck. Taking money from America weakens her. Then giving it to her enemies provides the advantage to weaker her further.

  • HARP2

    It`s only fair since the MB funded his 2008 campaign.

  • StrangernFiction

    We shouldn’t be funding ANY Mohammedan countries (otherwise known as funding the enemy). The fact that we are doing so with the support of both parties speaks volumes.

    • sDee

      Well said.

  • WhiteGuy2

    So we barrow 1.5 billion from China, give it to Egypt’s muslim brotherhood terrorist group then stick tax payers with the bill plus interest. What a stupid country we are! Why do we allow the government to do things like this. We should not be giving away the fruits of our labor to anyone while we have trillions in debt. It’s just stupid and irresponsible.

    • sDee

      It starts with the admission that neither the donkeys nor the elephants are not going to stop it. It is up to us – the people. No one is coming to save us.

  • johnos2112

    She also agrees with tax increases for the top 5%. These people are delusional parasites that needed to be driven away!

    • warpmine

      Call Terminix or Orkin, maybe one if not both can get the job done. Question after that is who gets the bill for the damage done to our house and were we insured?

  • ryanomaniac

    I like Kirsten Powers also. She’s a lefty for sure but is more reasonable than the left wing nuts.

    I watched live and I was yelling at the TV. Why are we sending money too them now? Its not the same government anymore. Its the Muslim Brotherhood now. Mubarak was a dictator but he was more interested in himself. The Muslim Brotherhood is interested in killing as many people as the dollar amount we just sent them. They’re a cover for terrorists. Hamas.

    Obama and the celebrities, give your money first. Show us how it works will ya?

  • ryanomaniac

    Hey Scoop, would you please put up the interview romney had with with Wolf Blitzer? It was a great interview. One of the best I’ve seen from Romney. It was great.

  • WordsFailMe

    Sounds to me like Kristen had her appendage slipped into a ringer following her semi-conservative outburst a couple of days ago–a real Cory Bookering, I’d say.

  • Rocco11

    Powers is like all Leftists, they’ll come to heel when ordered to do so..

    • warpmine

      It’s all part of their play book. Ignore your opponents facts no matter the logic.

  • Kordane

    Kirsten actually makes a fair point about how the US govt has always funded Egypt, but the point which should have been made, and which she should have been forced to address, is whether or not Obama should have ceased all funding for Egypt as soon as the Muslim Brotherhood got into power. The fact that Obama didn’t immediately cease that funding, suggests he approves of the Muslim Brotherhood, especially considering that he has also had them at the White House and has negotiated with them. This is not the mindset of someone who understands the threat that they pose, and is certainly not the mindset of someone who will do anything about it.

    • sDee

      I think this is the mindset of someone who understands the threat……someone who not only understands it but also understands the intention of our political class to align with this globalist subversion. Someone who knows she has to deceive America to keep her job.

  • WestGAFlash

    Replace Komrad Powers with Monica Crowley. Ban Juan Williams and help him get his job back at NPR. We don’t see Komrad Alan Combs that much anymore; I think they finally got the message about that dolt. Keep Jonah Goldberg, Billy Crystal and Tucker Carlson with the Doctor, and you’ve got the best commentary & panel in news today.

    Each your communist hear out, Brian Ross.

  • JohnOfPhiladelphia

    Obama was funding them before they came to power. He helped them to come to power, knowing they were behind the faux uprising. So Kirsten’s arguments that he is only helping them now because they are the ruling party is stupid to say the least.

    And besides, its like saying, “Hey, Hitler is the man in charge now. So we all gotta send funds of billions of US dollars to him. NVM the death camps he’s setting up and the fact he’s building an army to take over the world.”

    Face it Kirsten, your Kenyan King is nothing but a big sick joke.

    • sDee

      Right on point. So long as the media can keep Americans ignorant about islamofascism and the muslim brotherhood, they can continue to obscure the Political Class’ alignment with their marxist brethern. Powers is doing what she has been told to do.

      No different when Carter disposed the Shah and replaced him with an islamic supremacist. We still believe this propaganda the media spits out. The Right does nothing to expose the truth. Americans still do not educate ourselves.

      Hussein also ordered a massive military equipment and funding build up in Egypt before he pulled the trigger to dispose Mubarak.

      We have allowed our government to plant the seeds for 3 or 4 more “Irans” for our children to deal with.

  • toongoon

    Wait!?!! Did Kirsten say defense issues are Baracks area of expertise? When did this happen? I thought his expertise was getting around constitutional law.

    Obama is truly a blank canvass, the media uses water colors to paint him whatever they want him to be for the moment and spray it down every time his lies and expertise changes.

  • 911Infidel

    Obama is a commie with Muslim leanings. He hates this country and embraces anyone who is against it. The Ikwan has Obama in their back pocket and they know it. Buy a clue Kirsten.

  • Sandra123456

    If I were a Liberal I would really be mad. That’s 1.5 billion that could be given to the richest poor people in the world, our poor,

    Why funnel the money thru us instead of having China just give Egypt money? Why should we pay interest on it?

    If I were a Lib I would be as ticked off as Conservatives are about this.

  • Rshill7

    “So is Obama stupid, ignorant or is he willfully sending 1.5 billion to a government run by the Muslim Brotherhood? It can’t be all of the above.” (Scoop)

    It can’t? Why not?

    Here, let me flash this tattered poetic license before I add this. Ooh, that was so fast, even I didn’t see it.

    He can also be evil, subversive, in cahoots, bereft of wisdom, crazy, brainwashed, treasonous, and a hellbent barbarian to boot. He’s gonna get the boot too…from me and thee. Of course he comes by all this “honestly”. He was groomed from the woomed (sic).

    Does he know what he’s doing? Sure. Does that mean he can’t still can’t be a dumb fool?

    Nope 🙂

    • sDee

      Excellent points. Just as Carter did, Hussein is building up the islamic supremicists – they are the pit bulls of the globalists.

      He is doing what his masters tell him to do so it really does not matter if such evil is brilliant, ignorant or stupid. The result for free people is unchanged.

      It is we who are stupid and ignorant…. to fund our own death march and to plod arguing only about who we want to lead it.

  • detectivedick

    Face it the enemy is inside the gate, Hillary has Weiners wife as an Assistant and the entire World is waiting for the polls to say the LIAR loses or wins in November. Terrorists and the Progressives are very patient as they nudget, push and use small steps to achieve the transformation. Remember what was said earlier this year:

    Anyone ready for 4plus more years?

  • anneinarkansas

    I do not like Kirsten Powers.

    • Rshill7

      Do you like her brother Austin?

      • Linky1

        Yeah, Baby!!!!!!

        • Rshill7

          I just came back here to add that, but you beat me to it.


  • Sorry but Kirsten is dishonest to suggest otherwise. Obama has so many Muslim ties that anyone who looks the other way is committing willful blindness.

  • wales777

    Kinda like saying we weren’t funding the Nazi’s, we were funding the German government.

    Smart power!

  • kong1967

    She is technically correct. We are funding the Egyptian government like we have for many years. Except, the government was never the Muslim Brotherhood. I think the left is hoodwinked by the Muslim Brotherhood’s claim to be moderate and to respect every non-muslim citizen and religion.

    Kirsten Powers might be naive and buy into the liberal perpective on the MB. This is why we can’t let liberals win any more elections. Some of them, like Obama, know damn good and well what the MB’s intentions are. The rest are taken in by the lie told by Obama and the MB that they are moderate. They are either naive and stupid or they are intentionally pushing the lie because they like Islam (Obama).

  • Kirsten can I have you job, can I, unh can I ? BECAUSE YOU ARE DUMM SHIT!

  • Blah blah blah give money to terrorists instead of actual arms. Shut the whole damn corrupt thing down!

  • MsContrary

    Isn’t her husband Martin Makary, M.D. of Egyptian descent? His name has been floated as an appointee to the Office of Surgeon General by Obama.

  • wraith67

    It’s a stupid argument to say we’ve always given money to Egypt, what’s next, if Al Qaeda takes over a country that we give aid to, we’ll continue to give them aid?

    The problem though is the State Dept. who’s had an Arab fetish for decades. The unfortunate thing is that the Arabs that come in contact with State are a bunch of smooth operators and our State people are mostly a bunch of libtards. Go back to Bashar Assad getting advice to use “liberal guilt” in a recent interview. Pathetic really, the left are such a bunch of tools that bad guys have simple formulas for derailing them.

  • tularockstar

    Kirsten was wrong on this from all fronts. What Obummer did was gave $1.5 billion to the Muslim Brotherhood, even before the election was held. This money did not go to the Egyptian people. She wouldn’t admit to the fact that the money went to the MB to buy votes and the election! That’s the only reason Morsi won the election!

    Kirsten was wrong!

  • Nobody probably hates the Muslim Brotherhood more than I do. After all, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden’s No. 2 man and current leader of al Qaeda, got his start with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. These are no saints we’re dealing with. But, and this is a very big “but,” we have to remember that most of the Army in Egypt is pro-west. They could really be our only hope of keeping the Muslim Brotherhood out of total power in Egypt. If we cut off funding right now, that would weaken the Army’s hand and allow the Brotherhood to consolidate power. But if the Army manages to retain overall control of the country, then they will sit on the Brotherhood in order to retain their own power. So the key here is what is the Army going to do? As long as the Army has a chance to maintain its grip on Egypt, we should keep funding them. If the Army is purged, as it was in Turkey, then by all means stop the funding. But at the present moment we still have a chance to have some influence in the country by supporting the Army.

  • Well, TRS, I don’t like this grinning idiot. She’s an untrustworthy, leftist shill who’s no less full of lies, than any other leftist. She should be bitch slapped for DARING to defend giving a known terrorist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, American money to continue their war on Israel, as well as against us.

  • bignard1

    If I were Fox News I wouldn’t pay Kirsten Powers a dime. She lives on an Athiest make believe planet. She belongs in a straight jacket with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.
