How Will State Department Ideologues Deal With The Egyptian White House Visit?…

An interesting dynamic is set to unfold tomorrow when Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi visits with President Trump at the White House.

President al-Sisi represents the largest failure of the global left and their interventionist activism in the entirety of Obama’s tenure.  Diplomat Charles Rivkins’ multicultural approach toward eliminating the nationalism of France was small potatoes compared to the full-throated intervention of Hillary Clinton and President Obama in Egypt.

While average Americans were caught up with ObamaCare news in 2010, President Obama was building out a massive influence campaign in Egypt to install a Muslim Brotherhood candidate in Mohammed Morsi.   Almost no-one was paying attention to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s first foray into using social media to manipulate a population.

Zuckerberg was enlisted in the endeavor by like-minded travelers in Obama’s tight circle. The Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee was John Kerry.  The Secretary of State was Hillary Clinton.  The U.S. State Department was in direct alignment with the White House policy objectives.

It wasn’t until the useful idiots were directed into the social media trap and took over Tahir Square, that most Western media began reporting in depth what was going on.

By the time the young Egyptians realized they’d been snookered by extremists, Hosni Mubarek was gone, the jails were open, a no-longer-captive Mohammed al-Zawahiri  (brother to al-Qaeda’s #2 banana Ayman al-Zawahiri) was stirring up trouble; and the Muslim Brotherhood was gang raping CBS producer Lara Logan just off camera.

After a few months the crucifixion of Coptic Christians began.  The snookered peacenik revolutionaries realized they’d listened to the Muslim Brotherhood and elected a violent extremist.

By the time Morsi disbanded the entire judiciary and court system, and while he was only days away from instituting Sharia Law as the national governing legal authority, the stunned Egyptian people had enough and cried out for the only possible person who could save them, Commanding General al-Sisi.

And so he did.

With not a moment to lose, an intensely respected General al-Sisi used the military to whip the blood-lusting Brotherhood back into their cages; arrested Morsi’s Ministers of Crucifixion; restored the courts and judges and returned some semblance of peace and stability.

General Sisi did however, necessarily, step on a few globalist media toes in the process and kick out the Brotherhood’s media sycophants within Al-Jazeera.

As promised, Sisi restored the Egyptian constitution and, concerned about appearing dictatorial, within four months he put himself up for removal via a national election.  Sisi became president with over 70% support.

President Obama hated President Sisi for upsetting his interventionist plans for Egypt.  Obama was so furious Mohammed Morsi was removed, after the national re-election of al-Sisi the U.S. President refused to call and congratulate him.  However, the feelings of the Egyptian people back toward Obama and Clinton are even more intense.

Secretary Hillary Clinton made one visit to Cairo after Morsi’s outster and she was pelted with tomatoes as the crowds lining the streets shouted “Monica, Monica”, a ridiculing reference to husband Bill Clinton’s White House mistress and human humidor.

In essence, the entire White House/U.S. State Department investment in Egyptian politics was wiped out by General al-Sisi. For the last four years of President Obama’s second term he did everything he could to isolate, ridicule, weaken and undermine President al-Sisi.

Secretary Kerry was constantly undermining President Sisi’s regional stabilization efforts; most notably when Sisi negotiated a peace-accord between PA leader Abbas and Israel’s Netanyahu by favoring the higher-diplomatic-ground approach of Netanyahu.

President Sisi took quite a risk when he brought Abbas to heel, and he didn’t take kindly to Secretary Kerry showing up uninvited and unannounced to the negotiating session.  As the traveling media told the story: Kerry and the entire delegation he brought with him were subjected to enhanced personal security screenings in Cairo.  (Can’t really blame Sisi’s prudence there – Kerry might have a bomb in his horse britches)

President Obama and President al-Sisi only saw each other once in those last four years.  They crossed paths at the U.N. General Assembly in 2015.  The Egyptian people hate Obama for what he put them through, and Obama hated al-Sisi for fixing it.

[I do mean ‘hate’, not ‘dislike immensely’, but pure hatred.]

In addition, the diplomatic corps of the U.S. State Department similarly held the same impression and disposition as their light-bringer, teh one, President Obama.

The Egyptian uprising was a State Department velvet revolution with Muslim Brotherhood steroids from https://legalsteroidshere.com/best/; complete with blood-letting, automatic rifle fire in the supermarket, and al-Qaeda flags over the U.S. Cairo Embassy.

The black flags of al-Qaeda are not really a good look for U.S. led “democracy”; but they are right in line with President Obama’s foreign policy outcomes.

So, this sets the stage for an Official White House visit by President al-Sisi with full diplomatic formalities and a warm predictable welcoming President Donald Trump on Monday.

How do you think the State Department Correspondents Association will react/report?

    So here’s Egypt, yet another country that is thrilled with our new Prez…….but we won’t be hearing about that on the evening news.

      I had the same thought.. I knew knew the broad strokes of this but the details are what really matter. I had no idea Obama refused to congratulate Al Sisi– but given his rude and dismissive behavior towards Bibi it does not surprise me. Obama is despicable– Obama demanded respect from world leaders but gave no respect to them unless it was those in the Muslim Brotherhood… I am thinking that the absolute BEST revenge is for President Trump to broker a TRUE peace agreement that will stick and put to eternal shame the morons ( Hillary, Obama, Kerry etc etc ) that had no interest in true peace and did not give a rip about the people living in those hot areas that were caught in their ideological cross-hairs and died because of their diabolical interference.

    Latest “Fake News” is how Russia is arming the Taliban ……which doesn’t even begin to make sense. When Russia was in Afghanistan the mistake the Americans made was not helping Russia to wipe them out. America has a problem with enemy identification and sensible long range plans.
    9/11 was a direct result of such stoooopid choices. And so was the islamist uprising that has laughingly been called an “arab spring”. Pakistan is North Korea with a Quran.

      What the Russians are doing is diplomatic. They are splitting the Taliban. There are significant ideological fissures in the Taliban. They are not a united front. within Afghan society. The Russians are working to bring a significant number into cooperation with the government.

      One of the pressures on Taliban is ISIS. They are converting AQ, Taliban and others to the Caliphate concept. They will then use them to destabilize Pakistan and China and Central Asia. Thus, another few decades of war.

      Russia is short-circuiting this plan of the US Hegemon.
      China, meanwhile is investing in CPEC (China-Pakistan Economic Corridor). It is a trade and development corridor that will bring Pakistan tremendous growth and development.
      Russia, too, is taking Pakistan’s military away from the US domination.

      So, Russia-China (a duo at times) are working to replace the US/NATO which has failed for 30 years in the region and who threaten the duo with proxies (AQ and ISIS).

      Yes, the US military is pissed. But Russia is merely doing common sense geopolitics.
      It has to protect itself and its strategic partners in Asia, South Asia and Central Asia.

      Besides, the US/NATO cannot easily resupply to Afghanistan without permission from Russia and Kazakhstan (who allow overflight and base use for heavy equipment going to Kabul).

    ALso too the media use of ‘Arab Spring’ which sounds nice – ‘spring’ is positive, and alluded to the ‘Paris Spring.’ which also ‘sounds’ good and ‘people power.’
    But knowing the background of the actual ‘Paris Spring’ – the protests to remove an unpopular ruler left a power vacuum with no consensus as to what was the lawful government. It’s long been a political lesson in beware of rash street actions, one will get worse than what one had imagined.
    There were a number of Middle East experts who warned about this – the only organized political structure in Egypt was the MB and they would quickly mobilize if the government was ripped out. These informed voices were not allowed mass media access.

      “Indochina [which includes Vietnam] is devoid of decisive military objectives and the allocation of more than token US armed forces in Indochina would be a serious diversion of limited US capabilities” (Joint Chiefs of Staff, 26 May 1954).

      “Even had the United States attained a conclusive military decision, its cost would have exceeded any possible benefit. Vietnam was then, and remains today, a strategic backwater, and the US decision to fight there in the 1960s was driven by a doctrine of containing communism that in the 1950s was witlessly militarized and indiscriminately extended to all of Asia. Bernard Brodie observed in the early 1970s that “it is now clear what we mean by calling the United States intervention in Vietnam a failure. We mean that at least as early as the beginning of 1968 even the most favorable outcome could not remotely be worth the price we would have paid for it.”

      The problem is the U.S.A.’s fundamental unity problem. The result of the unity problem is that the idea of what is a “good cause” completely reverses every four or eight years to its opposite. It is not goodwill, but those reversals that cause suffering.

        Good points.

        I would point out that in the case of Vietnam that the US promised them during WW2 that if they would fight the Japanese we would see to it that they were an independent country and they would rule themselves after the war.

        The war ended and the US helped France re-take Vietnam thereby double crossing our wartime allies. When the Vietnamese beat the French; the USA then went to war with them. This was the typical US backstabbing that the world has come to expect from us.

        I can not see any aspect of Christ’s parable in the dirty actions of the US in the matter of Vietnam. By the way, I had three uncles in the war and one was on the Army planning staff running the conflict. What a dirty mess it all was.

      Much wrong has been done by us, the ‘beacon of the free world’…We can’t do much about the past, aside from truthfully acknowledging our history, warts and all, (like the coup and installation of the Shah in Iran led to Khomeini, or the ’73 coup in Chile, “weapons of mass destruction” etc.) and understanding how if we let our elected leaders meddle in the worlds affairs, we can’t just wash our hands of it, and not expect whatever mayhem we cause in the world won’t come back and bite us in the ass; that’s a delusion.

      We can’t just, you know, “At this point, what difference does it make?!!!” – it is incumbent upon us not to follow a leader like Obama into our own oblivion, because we somehow have a mass-subconscious guilt – We need to keep up with what’s going on in the here and now, keep in touch with like-minded, so hopefully, our impact will grow (i.e., try to hold Fox News’ feet to the fire… I was so proud to find people here (as I did) read the riot act to Fox re: Napolitano). We need to spread the word to those with whomever we may have a bit of influence.

      All we can do is our best, right? I was so proud several weeks back when I saw President Trump say to an interviewer: “What, you think we’re so innocent?”

        Great comments.

        As you say, all we can do is go on from here and try to do what is right. The deep-state intel agencies have been leading us into these horrible messes ever since WW2. I hope President Trump can break their hold on the politics of the US. If he does nothing more than that he will be recorded as the greatest president ever by future generations. (no easy task by the way)

    Don’t forget, some in Congress were questioning Muslim Brotherhood influence inside the Obama Administration back in 2012 (appointed to high level government positions) . They were ridiculed unjustly (even by establishment Repubs like John McCain) for simply asking if proper getting was being done on government hiring for some of these people with ties to Muslim Brotherhood.

    When el-Sisi was elected President of Egypt, one of the first things his new government did was declare Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.

    Thanks for the timeline. All I remember was the military takeover of Egypt. Like India, Egypt has a fascinating history. I hope that this leads to some sort of cultural exchange where Americans can see Egyptian culture and history without the lens of historical accounts of Julius Caesar. What I did learn from studying the Roman Empire while Caesar was dictator was that some aspects of the Egyptian power structure at that time was distinctly a matriarchy and that her brother was very weak. It is also true that J. Caesar meddled in Egyptian politics to keep Egypt as a vassal state.

    Although I think there will be some violence, I wish the President well and hopes he succeeds in changing the dynamics in the ME by forging alliances with Jordan, Israel, and Egypt.

    “Mohammed al-Zawahiri (brother to al-Qaeda’s #2 banana Ayman al-Zawahiri) was stirring up trouble”.

    And now Ayman al-Zawahiri is #1 al-Qaeda banana. He was a busy beaver before hooking up with Osama. He helped plot the assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat in 1981 and was tied to the assassination of former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto in 2007 not mention his role in 9/11 and all the other horrible things he’s done.

    And because this history is not taught in public school most have no idea that in 1941 the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, a rabid anti-semite, met with Hitler in Germany . Think of it, one of the highest religious clerics in Sunni Islam, sided with Hitler.

    Not sure how the State Department press pool will react, but I suspect they will run the gamut from straight forward factual reporting to HRW (2/4/17) ‘Sisi-Trump Meeting Shows Mutual Contempt for Rights,Visit Comes at Nadir for Basic Freedoms in Egypt’ line of spin.

    The ME and N African press has played it factual and positive except for (Egyptian) Al Shorouk’s editor-in-chief Emad El Din Hussein, who writes that the press should not ‘go overboard and make an international laughing stock of our media” and that Trump is already turning into a lame duck just two months into his presidency, and that we therefore shouldn’t “put all our eggs into the Trump basket.”

    Do you think our beloved Trump will designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization? The idea was floated several weeks ago. Why may he not, and what are the pitfalls if he does or doesn’t?

    An ideological battle has been raging for centuries between classical liberals and collectivists. The response to the death and destruction that followed collectivism around the world was immensely strong but it cost huge amounts of money and lives. Classical liberals between the 1950’s and 1980’s recognized that allowing collectivist regimes the opportunity to build power and influence was dumb which is why they went pro-active.

    The overthrowing of a democratically elected government in the Ukraine, destabilizing nations in the Middle East, the almost complete take over of Western Europe by the ever-increasing powerful EU, and the more recent attacks on Russia were just par for the course for collectivists. It’s in their DNA.

    During the cold-war, what parts of the world weren’t they trying to gain power and influence? Most of Asia, Central and South America. They were everywhere which is why we decided to implement a pro-active foreign policy whereby hostile foreign regimes would be prevented from becoming long-term threats by seeking out the best strategic alliances that would ultimately deliver the best peaceful and stable outcomes.

    It required a very powerful military which wasn’t a problem because the size of the military in general throughout the Anglosphere – the heartland of classical liberalism – reflected the incredible efforts to win WW2. In other words, the military was now already massive. This neo-con strategy worked. We won the cold-war.

    But our great leaders were replaced by … well actually no one. Right-wing parties in the West were infiltrated by collectivists who dragged the parties over to the progressive left. We had nobody for nearly two decades. Our political commentators should have been talking about the ideological collapse of the right but were too busy blaming shadowy groups. Everything from the military-Industrial complex, neo-cons, big business, big oil and even the Jews! You could not make it up.

  40. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is likened unto the evil king Moab who attacked the Israelites when they crossed the read sea. You will see what happened to him and rightly so. Judges 3-5King James Version (KJV)15 But when the children of Israel cried unto the Lord, the Lord raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab.
    16 But Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh.
    17 And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon was a very fat man.
    18 And when he had made an end to offer the present, he sent away the people that bare the present.
    19 But he himself turned again from the quarries that were by Gilgal, and said, I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said, Keep silence. And all that stood by him went out from him.
    20 And Ehud came unto him; and he was sitting in a summer parlour, which he had for himself alone. And Ehud said, I have a message from God unto thee. And he arose out of his seat.
    21 And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly:
    22 And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out.
