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.

Now as you know, I’m a retired Army Soldier who’s been in combat zones and faced enemy fire. I was dressing in peace in my home in Dallas. And then the news report came: one of my former colleagues, Rep. Steve Scalise had been shot.
The bribery scheme carried out by several Latin American governments and the Brazilian construction company “Oderbrecht” has made headlines.
Maybe Trump objected to the fraudulent notion, which Comey led the world to believe, that Trump was under investigation for collusion.

During our 240-year history, several presidents have undertaken U.S. foreign policy initiatives that today bear their names.
“This Russian investigation has gone nowhere, so they’re coming up with new charges,” said Jay Sekulow, one of President Trump’s attorneys.

In a remarkable interview, Rep. Bishop described how many more of those attending the practice would have been shot by the gunman had not a Capitol policeman put himself in the line of fire to shoot back.
Oddly, The Times ignores the fact that the shooter posted stories on a routine basis from outlets that endorsed Hillary Clinton. But The Times likes Clinton and not Bernie, so Sanders must be smeared.
The conventional wisdom out of Washington is that the president is a political neophyte stumbling from one crisis to another. But when it comes to legal battles, Mr. Trump is an experienced combatant.
Washington’s blabocracy is endangering our national security.
ISIS has claimed its killers staged the two attacks in Tehran on symbolically powerful targets: the tomb of the founder of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Khomeini, and the “parliament” building.
In short, Congress is investigating the wrong thing.
More than anything else, the president offered assurance that the U.S. stands behind its allies. When, during the Obama presidency, President al Sisi noted that “I love America, but America doesn’t love me,” he meant the U.S. was an unreliable ally that makes promises, but doesn’t follow through.

Washington has long ignored Qatar’s insidious role, largely due to the sprawling and important military base America operates there.
CNN's news is fake news. CNN's stories are lies. CNN's Fareed Zakaria is an exposed plagiarizer, but beyond all that, CNN anchors are the worst hypocrites on the air.
EMP experts with advanced degrees in physics and electrical engineering, with decades of experience, say North Korea threatens lethal EMP attacks
The Russia-gate scandal means big ratings for the media. For the American people, it means the likelihood of more terrorist attacks.
Despite Warmbier’s serious illness, North Korea grievously violated diplomatic and humanitarian protocols by refusing to permit Sweden, which represents U.S. interests in North Korea, or humanitarian agencies to visit him after he was arrested.
Interestingly, several of the points Reagan made in his 1987 speech are just as applicable today in the face of a new and perhaps greater threat. Instead of communism, it is now Islamism threatening us.
The regulation he cited applies to a different type of investigation.
This may come as a shock but intense terror incitement is happening in Jerusalem and nobody is taking a bit of notice.

Despite the continued Deep State’s attempts to try to have something stick to our president—think lying Clapper and John Brennan as well as pretend non-partisan former FBI Chief Mueller and his discredited BFF (and student) former FBI Chief Comey--it has been a partisan witch-hunt from its inception.
I guess this is what truly disturbs me about the progressive socialist left – they’re so horribly uninformed yet they masquerade about as being knowledgeable.
One wonders whose sensibilities are really at issue here as Christie demands the legal age of brides be 16 ... It would not be surprising that Christie would cater to Muslims.
Powerful testimony of personal experiences with communism’s horrors.

From France, Germany, Sweden, and other European nations come innumerable stories of Muslims apprehended after committing horrendous crimes only to be declared “mentally ill” (or who were just too “young” to be treated as adults) and so can’t be held responsible for the crimes.
Washington and the rest of the governments of the world know that their refusal to recognize Israel’s capital does not endanger Israel or its control of Jerusalem. They are free to bow to Arab pressure, safe in the knowledge that Israel will continue to protect the unified city.
But airing of grievances might help region in long run
A good argument can be made to support the idea that President Trump is the most “pro-life” President to ever hold office. He’s also taken more overt action to defend religious liberty than any President since… Bill Clinton.
President Barack Obama and his administration disbanded national security units which were originally charged with investigating Iran's network of Islamic terrorism funding.
One gunman spoke in Arabic and stated, “Oh God, thank you… Do you think we will leave? No! We will remain, God willing,”, which is a slogan that was created by ISIS spokesman, Abu Mohammad al-Adnani.

When Donald Trump and Pope Francis met at the Vatican on May 24th, the former became the thirteenth serving U.S. president to officially meet with a serving pontiff.
Think about it: Comey was the top law enforcement officer in the nation before he was fired on May 9. Had he felt a special counsel was necessary to investigate possible Russian influence in the 2016 election, he could have requested one from Congress at any time.
I know we have seen some surprising election results over the past year, but this one is off the scale. Two in five British people have voted for an unrepentant Communist, a man who has consistently sided with the West's enemies, a man who regrets the outcome of the Cold War.
He believed that the FBI director misled the public to think that the president was under investigation.
