There is no question that on Nov. 8, 2016 we had a political revolution in America. Over 63 million Americans had had enough of President Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America. His embrace of the progressive socialist agenda with its Marxist roots, coupled with his attempt to force the spread of Islam on our Judeo-Christian culture, resulted in not only a failed domestic policy but also a disastrous foreign policy. His actions have left the Middle East in total chaos in addition to creating the greatest strategic instability throughout the world since WWII.

The anarchy displayed by the leftist-progressive cabal today, supported by the mainstream media, to undermine President Trump carrying out his campaign promises is nothing but a sham. It is funded by seditionists like George Soros whose goal is to destroy not only our Constitution but our way of life. Compounding this problem is the fact that the leftist-progressive cabal has joined forces with the Muslim Brotherhood. We should never forget that the Muslim Brotherhood’s creed is to destroy America from within by their subversive “civilized jihad” tactics and replace our Constitution with the seventh-century draconian Islamic Shariah law.

This is a known fact that was proved during the Holy Land Foundation Hamas terrorist-funding trial in 2008. The Muslim Brotherhood should be designated a terrorist organization and prosecuted for sedition. We know that its penetration of all our government agencies started in the 1960s, but was greatly accelerated during the Obama administration.

The penetration of our government agencies by foreign agents goes back many years. Its roots began with our recognition of the Soviet Union by President Roosevelt in 1933. This recognition opened the floodgates for our penetration by Communist undercover agents and fellow travelers who embraced Communist propaganda. They ignored the atrocities and mass-murders Stalin committed to create the so-called perfect “workers’ paradise.” The conspiracy tactics employed by the Communist undercover agents to influence our entry into World War II, our conduct of operations and post WWII global restructuring — e.g., U.N., IMF, et al. — was nothing short of brilliant.

How we were engineered into WWII to save the British Empire is well documented in Herbert Hoover’s memoir “Freedom Betrayed.” He clearly documents how a modus vivendi (truce) with Japan’s Prince Konoye over their aggression in China, supported by our Ambassador Joe Grew, was masterfully thwarted by the Communist undercover agents in Tokyo, Washington and Chunking (China’s temporary capital). To further Soviet objectives, the same type of tactics were used to destroy strong anti-communist leaders like China’s Chiang Kai-shek and Yugoslavia’s Gen. Draja Mikhailovich.

The scuttling of the Four Freedoms of the Atlantic Charter at the Nov. 27 to Dec. 1, 1943 Tehran Conference was a total sellout of Poland, Finland, the Baltic States and Eastern Europe by Churchill and Roosevelt, helped skillfully by the subversive agents. This betrayal was solidified by FDR’s written letter to Stalin on Feb. 6, 1945 before the Yalta Conference. He stated, “I hope I do not have to assure you that the United States will never lend its support in any way to any provisional government in Poland that would be a inimical to your interests.” The sellout was complete.

In the Pacific theater detailed in Hoover’s memoir, the dropping of the two nuclear weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were unnecessary since Japan was not only ready to surrender but had made five separate peace attempts through the Vatican and Moscow. (Japan and Russia had signed a non-aggression pact.) This was confirmed by Adm. William D. Leahy, Roosevelt’s chief of staff, Adm. Chester Nimitz, commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and by Rear Adm. Ellis M. Zacharias, director of Naval Intelligence.

Additionally, two days before the disastrous Yalta Conference, Gen. MacArthur sent FDR Japan’s proposed surrender terms, which Roosevelt rejected. They were basically the exact terms Truman accepted in August 1945. Dropping the two nuclear weapons was not only a strategic mistake but a humanitarian disaster. Further, FDR’s rejection of Japan’s surrender cost the loss of thousands of American lives in the assaults on Iwo Jima and Okinawa. These losses all could have been avoided. As M. Stanton Evans and Herbert Romerstein write in “Stalin’s Secret Agents,” Stalin needed Japan’s surrender delayed so his armies could move east to back up his post war Asian claims. The bottom line is that we expended our national treasure so that Stalin could achieve a dominant position in Asia.

Regretfully, the Communist undercover agents were most successful. Many were later exposed e.g., Alger Hiss at State, Harry Dexter White of Treasury and Lauchlin Currie in the White House. Like-minded follow-on agents have now morphed into the progressive cabal we see today. They are still very effective in influencing our policies. For example, when the Iranian theocracy took over our Tehran Embassy on Nov. 3, 1979 as well as ordering the Oct. 23, 1983 Beirut Marine Barracks bombing, the Iranian Washington Lobby group was most effective in preventing any military response.

Under the Obama administration, the military’s disastrous Rules of Engagement can be traced to the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, including the refusal to identify the threat our forces faced. History has shown how successive administrations have been manipulated by foreign agents penetrating our government agencies. The individuals and groups behind the turmoil and anarchy we are witnessing today in response to Mr. Trump’s declaration to restore America’s security, integrity and world leadership must be exposed and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Undermining America must be stopped.
