A nationally syndicated radio talk show host has called for Barack Obama to be impeached if he is secretly pushing Egypt to become an Islamist country ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood. Tammy Bruce called for Rep. Darrell Issa to investigate whether the Obama administration is helping the radical Islamic fundamentalist organization rise to power after the departure of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Media reports indicate a member of the Obama administration has met with the Muslim Brotherhood, and the United States may have supported a plan to take down Mubarak since at least 2008. “If it is found that Obama secretly facilitated or *encouraged* an Islamist takeover of Egypt, an ally, he should be impeached,” Bruce wrote.
- “If it is found that Obama secretly facilitated or *encouraged* an Islamist takeover of Egypt, an ally, he should be impeached.”
- “Impeachment? We have a President in up to his elbows in an Islamist takeover of Egypt while he ignores a Fed Judge order to void ObamaCare”
- “The House impeaches–if there are grounds it should be done. @DarrellIssa needs to *immediately* determine Obama’s involvement w Egypt”
- “@DocBruceP It’s more than *losing* Egypt, if Obama *facilitated* the overthrow of an ally in favor of our *enemy* that’s impeachment”
A Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt could have widespread and devastating effects throughout the Middle East and around the world. A leading member of the Brotherhood, Muhammad Ghannem, reportedly told the Iranian television channel Al-Alam that Egyptians should prepare for war with Israel. He added activists should close down the Suez Canal, which carries eight percent of the world’s seaborne trade. The investment bank Barclays Capital has estimated closing Suez would remove 2-3 million barrels of oil daily. Gas prices have already crept up with news of the unrest, but they are nowhere near what they could be following a third Suez crisis. Two previous Suez closings threw the world into turmoil in the 1956-57 and 1967.
If the president is involved in promoting this agenda in any way, Congress may deem this an impeachable offense.
Anyone familiar with Tammy knows how ridiculous this characterization is.
Bruce describes herself as “a gay, pro-choice, gun owning, pro-death penalty, Tea Party Independent Conservative.” She was the youngest-ever president of the Los Angeles chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) and served on its national board of directors. A registered Democrat until 2008, she currently chairs the Advisory Committee of GOProud. Needless to say, she is anything but a party-line ideologue.
Her radio show, “The Tammy Bruce Show,” airs on weekdays from 2-4 p.m. EST.
