Dear DHFC Supporter,
Earlier this week, House Speaker John Boehner was presented with a petition bearing 178,000+ names demanding the removal of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Below you’ll find the letter I sent to Speaker Boehner praising him for his decision to reappoint Congresswoman Bachmann to this committee and urging him to hold is ground.
It is not often that the Freedom Center wades into a battle like this. And although we cannot advocate either way for Congresswoman Bachmann’s position on the committee, we can and will go to great lengths to defend her. Why? Because in the long run, the battle that Michele Bachmann is waging on the House Intelligence Committee may be more important to the well-being and security of Americans than all the battles over budgets and debt ceilings combined.
This is why the Freedom Center has launched a counter petition to the one a radical group gave to Speaker Boehner. As a staunch supporter of the Center and someone who cares deeply about America’s security at home and abroad, I’m counting on you to add your name to the Stop the Witch Hunt Against Rep. Bachmann petition and share it with your family, friends and colleagues.
Dear Speaker Boehner:
Thank you for reappointing Rep. Michele Bachmann to a seat on the House Intelligence Committee. Now more than ever, America needs a woman of her character, integrity and judgment on the committee charged with overseeing the various national security threats we face — and the performance of the Intelligence Community in monitoring, warning about and helping to counter them.
Foremost among these is the danger posed by jihadists seeking our destruction and the imposition worldwide of the brutally repressive Islamic doctrine they call shariah. In the past two years, we have seen the ascendancy of these forces in the Mideast and North Africa. Congress needs among its watchmen — and women — legislators like Rep. Bachmann who have become deeply knowledgeable and highly articulate about this threat.
That is all the more true insofar as the Obama administration’s policies have contributed to the legitimating, empowering, underwriting and even, in some cases, the arming of these Islamists. We urge you to ensure that the House Intelligence Committee vigorously investigates the legitimate questions posed last June by Reps. Bachmann, Louie Gohmert, Trent Franks, Lynn Westmoreland and Tom Rooney concerning the extent to which individuals employed by or advising the administration who have documented ties to the Muslim Brotherhood have been involved in the adoption of such dangerous policies.
