A Hillary Presidency: Who Will Be in Charge?

In the 2012 book titled Stalin's Secret Agents by M. Stanton Evans and Herbert Romerstein, there is a chapter detailing Franklin Delano Roosevelt's serious and obvious decline of health as he entered the pivotal Yalta talks at the end of World War II. FDR's health had been an issue "from the day in 1921 when he was struck down by polio, as a result of which he would never walk again unaided." While the Washington press corps concealed his infirmity from the public, there were,

however, other health problems of a more daunting nature in terms of his official performance. These concerned not the paralysis of his lower body or even his physical health in general, but involved instead his mental balance, judgment, and powers of comprehension.

In recent decades this information has become more publicly available. But at the time,

"...hundreds of persons, high and low, reported… that [FDR] looked bad, his mind wandered, his hands shook, his jaw sagged and he tired easily." Notwithstanding the fact that FDR couldn't "survive another presidential term" he went to Yalta and "seemed to have made 'absolutely no study of the German problem'" facing the group. In fact, Labor Secretary Frances Perkins recalled the change in Roosevelt "with the oncoming of a kind of glassy eye, and an extremely drawn look around the jaw and cheeks, and even a sort of dropping of the muscles of the jaw and mouth [.]"

Nonetheless, all of these concerns about FDR's health "were kept secret from the public." In fact, Roosevelt's own physician maintained that "there had been no previous signals of a [health] disaster." Yet, Churchill's personal physician maintained that "[w]henever FDR was called on to preside over any meeting, he failed to make any attempt to grip it or guide it, and sat generally speechless, or, if he made any intervention, it was generally completely irrelevant." At one point, FDR made the outlandish comment that in dealing with Middle Eastern issues, there was one concession that might be made and that "was to give Saudi Arabia's King Ibn Saud the six million Jews in the United States." One explanation of this response was a kind of aphasia -- the lack of the sort of mental filter that keeps people from blurting out impulsive statements."

Moreover, there were times when Roosevelt "signed or agreed to things of which he later said he had no knowledge. Thus, many of the cables and memos issued in his name during the last year of Roosevelt's life were routinely the work of others." It appears that Roosevelt's administration was, "in its last months, a kind of ghost ship, running on inertia."

So who was carrying on behind the scenes to keep the executive branch functioning?

Clearly the "identity and nature of Roosevelt's advisers [were...] matters of the first importance."

Enter Alger Hiss, who though billed as a low level "note-taker" was anything but. In fact, as Whittaker Chambers states,

In a situation with few parallels in history, the agents of an enemy power were in a position to do much more than purloin documents. They were in a position to influence the nation's foreign policy in the interest of the nation's chief enemy [.]

So what does this have to do with Hillary Clinton? Recently, it has become clear that Hillary Clinton is not well. Various explanations have been suggested ranging from multiple sclerosis to "...long-lasting symptoms stemming from a concussion and blood clot which could severely impact her cognitive abilities." According to Breitbart, there are "...sources who have commented about Clinton’s health problems, which have even impacted her ability to walk to her car after delivering a speech."

Moreover, "a number of New York Democrats, very prominent, well-known, wealthy New York Democrats, [have indicated]... that Hillary had very significant health issues and that they were surprised that she was running in view of her health problems and her lack of stamina [.]"

And Clinton's close confidante Huma Abedin has commented in an email that Hillary "is often confused."

Whoa!

Let us connect the dots. Grave concerns about Huma Abedin go back quite a few years. Huma Abedin has been a

  • Longtime former employee of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, which shares the Muslim Brotherhood's goal of establishing Islamic supremacy and Sharia Law worldwide.
  • In the  1990s she had been affiliated with the Muslim Students Association at Western Michigan University.
  • Huma's mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, is a sociologist known for her strong advocacy of Sharia Law.
  • Huma's father Syed was recruited by Abdullah Omar Naseef, a major Muslim Brotherhood figure who served as vice president of Abdulaziz University (AU); Syed Abedin, then went to work for the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA), a Saudi-based Islamic think tank.
  • From 1996-2008, Abedin was employed by the IMMA as the assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs (JMMA). At least the first seven of those years overlapped with the al Qaeda-affiliated Abdullah Omar Naseef's active presence at IMMA.
  • During Mrs. Clinton's 2008 presidential primary campaign, a New York Observer profile of Abedin described her as "a trusted advisor to Mrs. Clinton, especially on issues pertaining to the Middle East, according to a number of Clinton associates." "At meetings on the region," continued the profile, "...Ms. Abedin’s perspective is always sought out."

Notwithstanding the very close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, it is unclear whether Abedin has ever been properly vetted. In "June 2012, five Republican lawmakers (most prominently Michele Bachmann) sent letters to the inspectors general at the Departments of Homeland Security, Justice, and State, asking that they investigate whether the Muslim Brotherhood was gaining undue influence over U.S. government officials." One letter, noting that Huma Abedin's position with Hillary Clinton "affords her routine access to the secretary [of state] and to policymaking," expressed concern over the fact that Abedin 'has three family members -- her late father, [her] mother and her brother -- connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations.'”

Walid Shoebat has documented the connections with Huma Abedin and the Muslim Brotherhood but they have been summarily ignored and those who have pressed for further investigation have been scurrilously demeaned.

Is it far-fetched to consider the possibility that, should the health-afflicted Hillary Clinton become the 45th president of the United States, the country will be governed by Abedin and company echoing what happened with Roosevelt and Hiss?

Obama has already laid the groundwork, with Muslim Brotherhood operatives consulting him; transparency is nonexistent in this administration and Clinton, with her penchant for lying, will continue in that tradition; in addition, the Muslim Brotherhood has its own political party in the United States; and actions are being perpetrated that keep the United States military and security personnel in the dark about jihadist philosophy and operational tactics. In fact, many official records bearing critical data about jihadists have been destroyed, echoing the "disappearance of many official records" during the Cold War era.

Apart from the need for Clinton to clarify her medical condition, there should be a hue and cry about the overweening influence of Muslim Brotherhood operatives at all levels of the United States. I don't want to wait another 65+ years to read that we should have taken much more seriously the doubts and questions about who is really going to be in charge of day-to-day policies at the White House come 2017. In the same way that "the power to influence policy has always been the ultimate purpose of the Communist Party's infiltration" so, too, would it be the jihadist's dream come true to have such incredible sway.
