2012 Mitt Romney surrogate and former George H.W. Bush chief of staff John Sununu has made his anti-Donald Trump sentiment clear. In light of Sununu’s schmoozing with stealth Muslim Brotherhood jihadists at a 2013 gala, voters concerned with Muslim Brotherhood infiltration should take heart if Trump is the nominee.

At the 2013 American Task Force on Palestine Gala, Sununu was one of the VIP’s. By itself, that isn’t necessarily alarming but several others who were in attendance should raise some eyebrows. Other attendees included Grover Norquist, his co-founder of the Islamic Free Market Institute Khalid Saffuri, Muslim Brotherhood son and stealth jihadist Suhail Khan, Muslim apologist and comedian Dean Obeidallah, and a little known – but very influential – Muslim with ties to George H.W. and George W. Bush named Talat Othman.

Sounding an anti-Trump and anti-Cruz tone during an interview with Breitbart, Sununu’s logic was a bit curious:

“…people need to look at John Kasich because he will win. He’ll win Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire,” Sununu added, claiming that top contenders Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% and real estate developer Donald Trump have “no chance” to win those states against Hillary Clinton.

Trump has also made controversial statements about Muslims that included a claim that he saw ‘thousands’ of Muslims celebrating 9/11 in New Jersey. He later stated that there should be a ban on Muslim immigrants to the U.S. Though Sununu is a Christian, there were many Muslims present at the ATFP gala.

The ties between Norquist and Saffuri are long documented. The Islamic Institute they co-founded was funded by convicted terrorist Abdurahman Alamoudi. Later, Othman was put in charge of the Institute. In 2000, Othman delivered a Muslim prayer at the Republican convention, during which Lynne Cheney could be seen bowing her head.

From about 1987-1990, Othman served on the Board of Harken Energy with George W. Bush, who sold his nearly $1 million in stock. Two months later, Harken experienced larger than expected losses at a time that coincided with Othman’s access to then president George H.W. Bush’s office. According to a December 1991 Wall Street Journal article…

Two years ago, Talat Othman didn’t have the president’s ear. But since August 1990, the Palestinian-born Chicago investor has attended three White House meetings with President Bush to discuss Middle East policy.

Mr. Othman’s political access coincides with the remarkable ascendance of a little Texas oil company on whose board he serves alongside George W. Bush, the president’s oldest son. That company, Harken Energy Corp. — though it had never drilled a single well overseas or in water — recently won the rights to drill potentially lucrative offshore wildcat wells in a contract bestowed by the government of Bahrain.

While at Harken, Othman represented the interests of a wealthy Saudi businessman.

In 2008, John McCain’s campaign expressed feigning interest in going after Barack Obama’s ties to the likes of former PLO member Rashid Khalidi and felon Tony Rezko. It’s noteworthy that in 2002, Khalidi and Othman served as Vice President and Treasurer, respectively, of ATFP:

It wasn’t just Khalidi whom Othman was colleagues with. The former Islamic Institute president is also credited with introducing Rezko to Illinois politics.

As for Islamic Institute founder Khalid Saffuri, he too was at the gala. In fact, he had his photo taken with Othman more than once.

As for the founder of the Islamic Institute, Norquist was in attendance at the 2013 gala. He was seated at a table with Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), member of the House Freedom Caucus.

Also in attendance at an adjacent table was Suhail Khan.

Khan’s connection to the Muslim Brotherhood is well documented and not in dispute.

Another controversial figure in attendance was Muslim “comedian” Dean Obeidallah, who presented Othman with an award. Obeidallah has repeatedly taken pro-Muslim Brotherhood positions and even visited the Obama White House with stealth Muslim Brotherhood jihadists.

That Sununu would decide to consort with such a band of stealth jihadists is very telling. As chief of staff to George H.W. Bush, he had to have been familiar with the likes of Norquist, Othman and Saffuri. They visited his boss inside the oval office. 23 years later, Sununu was rubbing elbows with them at the ATFP gala.

Years later, in 2012, Sununu was an extremely visual and vocal advocate for Romney – particularly on Fox News – who went out of his way to avoid subjects like the Benghazi attack (especially during his third debate with Obama) and the larger issue of Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in general.

To bring the Sununu dynamic somewhat full circle, it’s important to understand that he was extremely influential in Romney’s presidential campaign. Curiously, like the plague, Romney completely avoided the most blatantly obvious example of Muslim Brotherhood infiltration. That example came courtesy of Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s closest aide. Romney was confronted about Abedin only once on the campaign trail… and he punted:

Incidentally, Abedin made her dislike for Trump clear after he called for a ban on Muslim immigrants. Norquist and Obeidallah both defended Abedin when her Muslim Brotherhood connections were brought to light.
