Homeland

 How do we fight terrorism at home?
Unlike America's past wars, the war on terrorism transcends traditional political boundaries. It is impossible to say that since we are fighting in the  Middle East, we are safe at home. We have to reorient our perspectives on longstanding ideas of offense and defense, as we must practice both on a domestic and a global scale. At home, it is essential to secure buildings, borders, and other assets that are likely terrorist targets. At the same time, we must be proactive, seeking out those who would cause us harm and preventing them before they can be successful. This is a complex challenge that demands a complex response. The government alone cannot fulfill the dual demands of homeland security. The American people must assume some responsibility for their own safety and contribute their individual and collective strengths to the government's effort. Working together, we stand a much better chance of keeping our families and communities safe.

Federal, state, and local level action plans . . .
The United States has always been a nation of immigrants. The entrepreneurial courage of someone who would leave the country and culture they had always known to take their chances in a new world has greatly shaped the American experience. Our population has grown immensely since our founding, but we still welcome newcomers to our shores. Our commitment to an equal opportunity and equal treatment for all, with no consideration for ethnic background and place of birth, remains strong.

Of course, there are other people, those who would do us harm, who are not so welcome in the United States. Technological developments exercised alongside our own precious freedoms provide a lone actor with malevolent intent the tools required to cause immense devastation to the American homeland. Our law enforcement capabilities are poised to detect and prevent such an act before it could occur, but our resources are necessarily limited. It is much easier and safer to stop such individuals before they even enter our country. Preventing individuals with threatening backgrounds or a blatant disregard for our laws from entering the United States is an important step in preventing further attacks. Equally important is having an accurate record of who is here, for what reasons, and for how long, to assist in law enforcement investigations. This is not a question of keeping out those who are different or reserving the wealth of the United States only for those who are native citizens. A balance must be struck that respects the role of immigrants in our national culture and gives an opportunity at the American dream to as many people as possible, while preventing the entry or continued residence of those who would do us harm or disrupt our system of government.

They are, in a word, selfless and they will lead us into a 21st century of freedom, innovation, growth and human development...

Many economists have pointed to the heavy subsidization of federal student loans as one of the primary drivers of rising tuition.

The Obama administration's Clapper told the panel of lawmakers that the U.S. economy is losing upwards of $300 billion per year because of rampant cyber-based corporate espionage. 

The anti-Trump venom from the mainstream media has become so virulent that broadcasters and reporters alike risk becoming little more than extensions of the late-night “comedic” lineup, bashing the President without regard for truth or factual accuracy.

Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit against the U.S. Dept of Justice and the NSA for information about Susan Rice’s communications with the two agencies concerning the alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election...and the unmasking of the identities of any U.S. citizens associated with the Trump presidential campaign or transition team ...

In its annual report for 2012-2013, Planned Parenthood said that it did 327,166 abortions in fiscal 2012.

The U.S. government spends billions of dollars to “resettle” foreign nationals and transparency on how the money is spent depends on the agency involved. Judicial Watch has been investigating it for years, specifically the huge amount of taxpayer dollars that go to “voluntary agencies”, to provide a wide range of services for the new arrivals.

First, Brennan told House lawmakers that the plethora of leaks coming from the Trump intelligence community “hurts our national security, compromises our intelligence capabilities, and needs to be investigated, needs to stop.”

But one speech does not a policy make; it must be the beginning of a consistent approach in battling Islamist ideology.

But just because the jihadists can’t be laughed away doesn’t mean they should never be laughed at. Our country has — in the form of Donald Trump — the most improbable, comedic, and, potentially, effective psy-ops president we’ve ever had.

Second only to George Soros, Bezos, who owns WAPO The Washington Post, which is ground zero for almost every negative “fake news” attack column against President Trump since 2013 – is the single largest financier of left-wing causes and the anti-Trump propaganda hitting our headlines every single day.

“I’m not trying to normalize him in any way. I’m trying to do what reporters do…report and try to emphasize what I think was important here.”

While Pyongyang’s announcement Kim Jong-un is open to meeting President Trump generated surprise and hope, there should be neither. Hope was dashed the next day by North Korea conducting another unsurprising ballistic missile test – the 75th test under its new leader.

Americans should embrace the good, the bad, and the ugly of U.S. history — rather than shove statues down the memory hole.

In a May interview with Sean Hannity, P.I. Rod Wheeler says when he began his investigation into the murder of Seth Rich... he called the DCPD but didn't hear back from anyone for two to three days. Wheeler says he learned from the family ...a high-ranking official at the DNC got the information about his query and called the Rich family "wanting to know why I was snooping around."

Addressing an unprecedented U.S.-Arab-Islamic gathering in Riyadh, Trump did not shy away from using terms eschewed by his predecessor such as “Islamic terror” and “Islamic extremism,” and he painted “Islamists” as part of the threat.

Robert Mueller has a serious conflict of interest that should disqualify him from serving as special counsel. He has had a long and close relationship with someone who will surely become a pivotal witness...

As one observer notes, “whether you believe in… prophecy or not, today the Middle East is the most keenly watched area of the globe… it is central to the economic stability of the entire world.”

“. . . Congress should look at EMP attacks as one of the three great threats to our survival, the other two being cyber warfare and nuclear weapons. And they should regard all three as catastrophic..."

During the Vietnam War in the 1960s, Hayden, a prominent and vocal voice for the North Vietnamese communists, had organized a campaign with Jane Fonda, John Kerry, and Ted Kennedy to cut off American aid to the existing government of South Vietnam and cooperate with the Vietcong and Khmer Rouge.

Mueller is a company man; he will protect the FBI and its former director and friend. The fix is in.

Make no mistake. Those who oppose individual freedom being replaced with the collective enslavement of group-think and actions are not pro-humanity.

Now that Robert Mueller has been appointed special counsel to investigate if Russia influenced the 2016 presidential election it’s worth reiterating his misguided handiwork and collaboration with radical Islamic organizations as FBI director.

In other words: These kids are being paid to tattle on other kids for anything they might consider to be a microaggression, and any students who gets these jobs should probably identify themselves so that other students will know to never invite them to their parties.

“The president’s upcoming speech offers an opportunity to clarify whether or not he believes Islam should be respected as a major world faith,” said CAIR’s national executive director.

Up until now, veiled orders have not been thought the equivalent of obstruction.

Why are the NY Times, the Democrats, the Socialists, the Communists, George Soros and so many others not harping about how China bought the election of Slick Willie in 1992?
