(Before It's News)

Yes, yes, the left-wing think tanks, a.k.a. the Soros hate machine, figured it out! A little Jewess in New York City is running the world.

Patterson’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood is well documented, especially by the Egyptian people.

And a hate-filled saboteur such as Nick Fernandez would never admit it, but I am no more “anti-Muslim” than foes of the Nazis were “anti-German.”

“Anonymous Fox News Article Echoes Smear Of Obama Appointee From Notoriously Anti-Muslim Activist Pamela Geller,” by Nick Fernandez, Media Matters, March 10, 2017:

Fox News ran an anonymous front page story on its website alleging that Secretary of Defense James Mattis “wants the Pentagon’s top civilian job to go to a one-time prominent supporter of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood.” A similar charge against the pick , former U.S. Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson, appeared on notoriously anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller’s website six days earlier, alleging that Patterson was “instrumental in [President Barack] Obama’s backing of the Muslim Brotherhood Morsi regime in Egypt.”

Politico Reports That Mattis Wanted Patterson For Undersecretary Of Defense For Policy But Was “Running Into Resistance From White House Officials”

Politico: The Trump Administration Is “Voicing Concerns About” Patterson’s Work As U.S. Ambassador To Egypt And Is “Running Into Resistance From White House Officials.” According to a March 2 report from Politico’s Eliana Johnson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis was “running into resistance” to Patterson’s nomination “from White House officials.” According to Johnson, Patterson “came under fire for cultivating too close a relationship with the” democratically elected, now-former President Mohamed Morsi, “and White House officials are voicing concerns about those decisions now.” From Politico’s March 2 article:

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis wants to tap the former U.S. ambassador to Egypt, Anne Patterson, as his undersecretary of defense for policy, but the Pentagon chief is running into resistance from White House officials, according to multiple sources familiar with the situation.

If nominated and confirmed, Patterson would hold the fourth most powerful position at the Pentagon – and would effectively be the top civilian in the Defense Department, since both Mattis and his deputy, Robert Work, were military officers.

As ambassador to Egypt between 2011 and 2013, Patterson worked closely with former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and his Islamist government. She came under fire for cultivating too close a relationship with the regime and for discouraging protests against it—and White House officials are voicing concerns about those decisions now.

Fox News Runs Anonymously Written Article Alleging Patterson Is “A Onetime Prominent Supporter” Of “The Muslim Brotherhood”

Fox News: Secretary Of Defense “Wants The Pentagon’s Top Civilian Job To Go To A Onetime Prominent Supporter Of Ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi And The Muslim Brotherhood.” According to an anonymously written article featured on the front page of FoxNews.com, apparently “there is widespread concern, both at home and abroad, about” Patterson’s alleged “close ties to ousted [Egyptian President Mohamed] Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood.” According to the article, “Patterson’s support of Morsi and his Islamist government” has apparently “rubbed off on President Trump and others within the White House at a time when the president is considering declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.” From the March 10 article:

President Trump’s defense secretary wants the Pentagon’s top civilian job to go to a onetime prominent supporter of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, a group Trump may designate as a terrorist organization.

[…]

While Patterson’s bona fides are not in question – she has served as an ambassador to Egypt, Pakistan, Colombia, El Salvador and the United Nations, along with being President Obama’s assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs – there is widespread concern, both at home and abroad, about her close ties to ousted Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood.

[…]

Her poor standing among the Egyptian public seems to have rubbed off on President Trump and others within the White House at a time when the president is considering declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. [FoxNews.com, 3/10/17]

Fox’s Article Echoes The Notoriously Anti-Muslim Activist Pamela Geller

Pamela Geller: “Is Mattis Nuts? As Ambassador To Egypt, Patterson Was Instrumental In Obama’s Backing Of The Muslim Brotherhood Morsi Regime.” On March 4, infamous anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller published a piece on her website asking whether Mattis is “nuts” for considering Patterson for undersecretary of defense for policy. Geller characterized Patterson as “instrumental in [President Barack] Obama’s backing of the Muslim Brotherhood Morsi regime in Egypt” and called her a “terror supporter.” [PamelaGeller.com, 3/4/17]…
