The Muslim Brotherhood is far more treacherous and sinister than any Freedom loving CONTRAS....thats for sure....Why is the Council on Foreign Relations....CFR pushing to turn the Middle East into a MUSLIM CALIPHATE...first thing on their agenda..beheading all infidels...i.e. Catholics and Protestant Christians.....then blowing up the state of ISRAEL...why are Neocons in sync with the Globalist CFR agenda too? Whats with that?
"When the president does it, that means that it is not illegal."

So said Richard Nixon in his interviews with David Frost. Nixon was talking about wiretaps and surreptitious entries to protect lives and safeguard national security in a violent and anarchic war decade.

The Nixon haters pronounced themselves morally sickened.

Fast forward to our new century. For, since 9/11, we have heard rather more extravagant claims by American presidents.

Under George W. Bush, it was presidential authority to waterboard, torture, rendition and hold enemy aliens in indefinite detention at Guantanamo.

Under Barack Obama, we don't have a Nixon "enemies list"...
