Vice President Pence's remarks in Indonesia painted what is at best a misleading picture of the facts on the ground. Let’s hope that behind the scenes the Vice President and President Trump’s national security team know what’s really going on in the world’s most populous Muslim country.
Mike Flynn was clear-eyed about the threat Islam poses to constitutional liberty and America’s Judeo-Christian culture. Whoever conned President Trump into saying that he thought Islam has been “kidnapped by radical groups” did so by failing to tell him that he was meeting with a representative of one of the chief kidnappers – the Wahhabis of the Saudi royal family.
It is time this investigation became a national security investigation and the FBI and counterintelligence agencies replaced the politics-tainted Capitol Police as the lead agency investigating how House Democrats handed over the backdoor to the House computer network to a Hezbollah cell laundering its money through a car dealership and a crooked Iranian doctor.
Despite the pessimism many conservatives feel after the ultra-liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals failed to overturn District Judge James Robart’s plainly extra-constitutional order stopping the President from suspending immigration from seven terrorist hotspots, there is much good news in the immigration battle.
Chiefs of staff for dozens of Democratic lawmakers who employed four Muslim computer staffers were informed that a criminal probe was underway into their use of congressional information technology systems, including the existence of an external server to which House data was being funneled, and into the theft of and overbilling for computer equipment.
The Trump administration is pulling the plug on the official Islamophilia of the last administration, which the New York Times seems to think went swimmingly. Remember the glory days when Obama was inviting the Muslim Brotherhood to his speeches, his attorney general was banning any mention of Islamic terrorism, and his CIA director was sanitizing jihad as a “legitimate tenet of Islam”? Apparently, we’re supposed to tremble at the thought that this period has passed.
There is an undercurrent of support from Muslims for the newly elected president. Even those Muslims who couldn’t vote for Trump, but who are engaged with the problem of radical Islam, feel President Trump can act as a megaphone for their voice.
Those who oppose President Trump’s temporary ban on immigration from terrorist hotspots want Americans to forget that it targets, based on our experience with Muslim terrorists, the exact individuals who are most likely to be terrorists and have ties to Sharia-based jihad.
President Obama is the most unaccomplished man to ever hold the office and has been given an eight-year free pass and never held to account for his failures; while Donald J. Trump hasn't even been sworn in and is already a human pinata for the snowflake right and the radical left.
Public records uncovered in the days after the massacre suggest Hammad (Santiago) is a radical Islamic terrorist who is seriously committed to Islam. Besides taking on a Muslim name before joining the US military, he recorded three Islamic religious songs, including the Muslim declaration faith, the Shahada: there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger.
Over the weekend media reports surfaced that Christopher Ashcraft, a U.S. State Department “consular officer” posted to Guadalajara, Mexico had been shot and wounded by Zafar Zia. What is more interesting, and has not been widely reported is that Zafar Zia, although of Indian heritage, is a Muslim.
According to the Judicial Watch review of a new report released by Spain’s Defense Ministry, “Latin America represents an important region for Islamic radicalism because conditions enable the free, almost undetectable, movement of their members throughout the region.”
We are not merely in a shooting war with jihadists. We are in an ideological war with sharia supremacists. Mass murder is not their sole tactic; they attack at the negotiating table, in the councils of government, in the media, on the campus, in the courtroom — at every political and cultural pressure point. To defeat jihadists, it is necessary to discredit the ideology that catalyzes them. You don’t discredit an ideology by ignoring its existence, denying its power, and accommodating it at every turn. President Obama never got this. Will President Trump?
Secularists have no moral right to be indifferent on the religious assault on Christians, much less treat Islam as the persecuted religion. Christians are deemed sinful if they don't love their fellow man without qualifiers; radical Muslims are deemed holy if they kill you if you're anything but one of them. How many more must be slaughtered for secularists to realize they are fighting the wrong religion?
Recognizing that Islam is the threat, and implementing threat-based security procedures devoid of political correctness or ideological agendas is the only way to stop these attacks from continuing in what Muslims now consider to be “the era of total confrontation” with the West.
The neo-con counter to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” seems to be shaping up to be “Make Russia Evil Again.” If President-elect Trump wants to drain the swamp in DC, and formulate a new national security policy focused on winning cyberwarfare battles and eradicating ISIS and militant Islam, he should start by draining Obama’s Pentagon.
Although it is early, we like what we see in Josh Mandel, particularly his fiscal conservatism and his willingness to tell it like it is about the war Islam has declared on the West.
Thanks in large measure to Angela Merkel, a Muslim army has successfully crossed the Mediterranean, European culture and nation-states are in full retreat, and Phase Six of the Muslim conquest of the West is well and successfully under way.
We understand Ambassador Dermer’s wish for a future for Muslims that is tolerant and peaceful – it is a view we once shared after traveling extensively in the Islamic world and living among secular Muslims. However, it is a dream that is fast disappearing because the forces of “militant Islam” are not perverting Islam as some have suggested, rather they are following its tenets to the letter.
The courage of Pearl Harbor is contagious, but will today’s students even be told the stories of the heroes of Pearl Harbor, such as Machinist Mate First Class Robert R. Scott?
