How do we fight terrorism abroad?
At the same time that we are working to secure and defend the American homeland, the United States must also be aggressively waging the war on terrorism abroad. The United States is safer if terrorists never reach our borders and the whole world is safer if they never turn to terrorism at all. Understanding these facts, the United States has developed a two-pronged approach to winning the war on terrorism overseas. First, we must identify and neutralize those individuals who represent threats to American interests. Naturally, some of these people are actual terrorists, with the intention of traveling to the United States or our foreign installations and causing death and destruction. Others are terrorist supporters, including governments, financiers, religious leaders, and instructors, all of whom are essential to the continued implementation and success of terrorism. Their work is as deadly as that of their operational allies and must be stopped if we hope to prevent further attacks.
At the same time that the United States is fighting terrorism where it already exists, it also has developed and implemented a multidimensional approach to preventing the spread of radicalism and the education of new terrorists. Certain conditions generally accompany the decision of an individual to turn to terrorism, including socioeconomic status, integration into the community, level and type of education, and exposure to foreign cultures. While these are not foolproof predictors of potential radical sympathies, they so frequently accompany a susceptibility to radicalization and a willingness to use violence that their association is generally accepted by most analysts. If the United States can reduce the pervasiveness and potency of these factors, it may also be able to control the spread of terrorism worldwide.

This obsolete vestige of the New Deal should be dissolved
Rumblings have come from the Trump transition team about reorganizing the intelligence community or parts thereof. That's not a bad idea at all.
According to Wikileaks, on May 19, 2015, Kadzik sent Podesta an email appearing to tip off Clintons’ campaign about the Justice Department’s review of Clinton’s emails:
Little noted in the media firestorm surrounding the passage of UN Security Council Resolution 2334, commanding Israel to stop all settlement activity, is the potentially deadly ramifications for Israel's struggling middle class.
Standard villains pursue material values. Soros pursues the non-material value of nothingness, of desolation, of the skeleton of a civilization he never contributed to, and is dedicated to destroying.

While Obama embraced a non-confrontational policy with Tehran for eight years that only encouraged greater Iranian aggression, he also negotiated a nuclear deal—the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action —paving the way for the mullahs to acquire a nuclear arsenal.
The degree to which Obama has wielded executive power in favor of America’s enemies and against his own political opponents and scapegoats is breathtaking.

It is not exactly news that President Obama has engaged in repeated national security fraud.

Even assuming Russian involvement – and absent supporting evidence – the ghost of actor Orson Welles appears to be haunting us, subjecting Hillary Clinton diehards to mass hysteria.
Since the election, I am glad to see he has recognized that, as an outsider to Washington, he needs cabinet members (with the inexplicable exception of the secretary of state) who know the ropes.
There have been so many reports lately of the implementation of “trigger warnings,” especially in universities, that one might well ask oneself: Why bother putting police scene-of-crime tape around a particular animus? Why not declare everything off limits, reality in fact.

A Special Report from the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism
Again, the left’s vile behavior is not objectively funny. But as PE Trump systematically swats away these irritants like so many pesky gnats, I have to admit that I’m loving every minute!
“The children, none older than 4, watched jihadist propaganda videos and rehearsed a game called ‘suicide bomber’ where they ripped open sacks of sand strapped to their torsos.”

Palestinian and Arab leaders have forecast an “explosion” on anger should Trump go ahead with the move (moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem), a warning echoed this month by Secretary Kerry.
In other words, Mrs. Clinton and Obama are at least partially responsible for the current Middle East chaos, the death of four brave Americans at the hands of terrorists in Benghazi, and Islamic State-inspired homegrown terrorism.
The world Obama asserts is safer today because of his leadership and his agreement with Iran has only left President Donald Trump with a ticking nuclear time bomb with which he will be left to deal.
To undo Obama’s catastrophic damage.
If the thugs in ISIS were not so busy decapitating people, we might have been paying more attention to a longer-term hostile force, Russia.

So how about some concern about Sharia law which enslaves women, forcing them to abjure all those fancy duds advertised in Vogue, and cower behind niqabs, burkas, and hijabs? In “moderate” Moslem nations they could be stoned to death for posing in the suggestive underwear ads that dot the glossy pages of Vogue.
