Obama's Muslim Brotherhood Brother Got Illegal Tax Exemption For Islamist Foundation
The Egyptian government is apparently opening up another can of worms when it come to President Obama's connection with the Muslim Brotherhood.
The former Chancellor of the Constitutional Court of Egypt and its current adviser, Tahani Al-Jebali openly stated that the reason President Obama favors the Muslim Brotherhood is because his half-brother Malik is a Brotherhood member who,in her words, "is one of the architects of the major investments of the international organization of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
“We will carry out the law and the Americans will not stop us. We need to open the files and begin court sessions. The Obama administration cannot stop us; they know that they supported terrorism. We will open the files so these nations are exposed, to show how they collaborated with them [the terrorists]. It is for this reason why the American administration fights us.” (h/t Walid Shoebat for the vids and translation)
She also appeared on Egyptian television to repeat these allegations and to characterize the upcoming trials as “a gift to the American people” .
Is there anything to this? Quite possibly, although I personally think there's a lot more to President Obama's support for Islamists and the Muslim Brotherhood than just aiding and abetting his half-brother Malik.
President Obama and his half-brother Malik are particularly close - Malik was reportedly Best Man at the Obama's wedding.
Malik Obama is a member of the Brotherhood and the Executive Secretary of the Islamic Da’wa Organization, or IDO, a group created by the government of Sudan. The organization's professed mission is to spread Islamist doctrine throughout Africa.
The group was created by the Sudan's leader Omar Al-Bashir, also a Brotherhood member who is wanted for seven counts of crimes against Humanity by the International Court of Justice for activities mainly relating to the genocide in Darfur. The Sudan is listed by the State Department as a material supporter of terrorism.
Al-Bashir and Malik Obama are also particularly close.
Here's where stuff gets interesting. Malik Obama, also known as Abongo or Roy operates two IRS-approved 501(c)3 organizations operated in the U.S. Both raise funds from U.S. individuals and corporations, and I wouldn't be surprised if such donations were regarded as 'insurance' by people seeking grace and favor from the Obama Administration.
One of them, the the Mama Sarah Obama Foundation, created on behalf of Obama’s step-grandmother in Kenya, was supposedly put together to build homes for widows, orphans and HIV/AIDS victims in Kenya.
The other, the Barack H. Obama Foundation is allegedly to provide 'development projects' also in Kenya.
Both 501(c)3 applications received amazing customer service, receiving their determination letters in a month as opposed to the normal 6 month time frame. Not only that, but since Malik's 'foundation' had been soliciting without a determination letter since 2008, he was granted retroactive tax exempt status by none other than our old friend Lois Lerner. Her signature is at the bottom of Malik Obama’s tax-exempt approval letter and she illegally granted Malik’s foundation retroactive tax exempt status for 38 months, even though the law prohibits going back any further than 27 months.
Now the big question is, what were these funds actually used for? Apparently the only thing money from the foundations were found to be used for was to build was a single compound known as The Barack H. Obama Recreation and Rest Center', containing a mosque, a madrassah and housing for Malik and his twelve wives. Sounds a lot like Charlie Rangel, doesn't it? No one knows where the rest of the money seems to have gone or where the current donations are going.
Now Malik's scam seems to be small time - in 2010 he reported $24,250 total gross income derived from contributions, gifts and grants, a small amount here but a huge amount in Africa and the Middle East. Whatever the amount, we have no way of knowing if that's a correct accounting. After all, Malik is not a U.S. citizen, he has nothing the IRS can attach here in America if he was committing tax fraud and no action the IRS can really take except shutting down his Arlington, Virginia mail drops.
Were these foundations used to launder money by the Brotherhood? Did some of it go to IDO?
Is Malik simply a small-time crook trading on his brother's name and protection, or is he a conduit for something bigger?
The Arab media is writing quite a bit about this, but they are notoriously prone to conspiracy theories. Next, they could be saying that Malik is a Mossad agent.
But the connections are definitely interesting, and at the least it looks like the IRS aided, expedited and abetted a tax scam for the president's half-brother..perhaps because they were explicitly told to.
That much, we know for certain.
