During the 2008 Presidential campaign, Barack Obama made a briefly reported “gaffe” where he said he’d been in “all 57 states and had one to go, the 58th.” It got a laugh from most Republicans and was buried by the mainstream media. Was our President sending a signal to folks who might interpret as intended? Maybe it was just a coincidence, but it took me 4 years for it to click. (REF: Media Research Council – NY Times Watch, 11/15/2011 or Google it). Jump ahead to the 2012 Republican primaries when Rick Perry had a momentary lapse and couldn’t remember that the Energy Department was one of three agencies he wanted eliminated. The press had a field day – though not as bad as Dan Quayle’s using an alternate spelling of potato (potatoe), both gaffes are sufficient to destroy their political reputations by the pens of mockers and the wagging tongues of pundits. Now to the first week of June 2012 when I attended a talk by John Guandolo at a patriotic ACT! For an American veteran’s dinner.

Guandolo is an expert on the Muslim Brotherhood with an enviable service record from the Naval Academy, Marines, and Army Ranger School to the Washington Office of the FBI – Counterterrorism Unit. He currently has a security company that advises and trains police, military, and governmental agencies.
We learned the depths of infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood (Al Qaeda is actually a subset) into all aspects of American society – including cutting off any (even Fox) news that might expose their agenda. He meticulously outlined the names of the perpetrators (dead and alive) and myriad universities, departments of government, and military agencies the MB has infiltrated. He flashed on the screen – The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). It has 57 member states! Two of us asked, “Is that Obama’s 57 states that we thought was a gaffe in 2008?” Guandolo responded, “You said it, I didn’t” and went on.
We are all familiar with Obama’s sympathies toward, if not belief in, Islam and his confrontations with Christian doctrine and sensitivities. Was his “57 States” remark a signal that all was well in the world of Sharia where its 58th member isn’t too far from joining its brethren? He also stated there is not one thing the MB infects societies with that does not comply with Sharia, including its American incursions. Military and government officials at all levels take a solemn oath to “protect and defend the US Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Sharia and the Constitution cannot co-exist. Period! Are Obama officials in the Military, Homeland Security, HEW, and attendant czars simply useful idiots or co-conspirators? Treason by default? Guandolo showed the overriding element that allows the whole MB program to work is Political Correctness – which I define as “the manifestation of the spirit of Antichrist!” How appropriate.
