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.

After President-elect Donald Trump is sworn into office and Hillary Clinton supporters finally accept it, an important question will confront a divided America: Can a once-great nation recover the greatness it has surrendered?

The hearing turned into a vibrant debate among the senators about the merits of education choice, what the federal government can and should do to advance choice, the state of student loans and grants, and the efficacy of preschool.

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:

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.

U.S. taxpayers' money far too often is placed against American values and interests, whenever the United States gives it to the U.N.

About 5,000 service members participated in the 58th presidential inauguration dress rehearsal Sunday morning.

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.

Judicial Watch Asks for Depositions from Hillary Clinton, Cheryl Mills, and Eight Other State Department Officials

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

In a massive slap in the face to both the defense and intelligence communities, outgoing President Barack Obama commuted the sentence for Chelsea Manning, formerly known as Bradley Manning,

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.

'May not be an accident that this action is being addressed on the last full day of the administration'

What has Trump accomplished as President-Elect? The below list only includes the highlights of a truly remarkable (and exciting) transition period.

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!

President Barack Obama promised that his would be the most transparent administration in US history. And the truth is, it was. At least in relation to his policies toward the Muslim world...

As the flames of rhetoric against Putin and Russia soar throughout the US and the West, it helps to look back over the years since the collapse of our 70 year old enemy – the Soviet Union!

Donald Trump should invite Ayatollah Boroujerdi to the inauguration. Such a dramatic move would deliver several important messages...

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.

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.

Judicial Watch’s sources say the barrage outside what’s soon to be the new U.S. Consulate is connected to a broad operation between Islamic terrorists and Mexican drug cartels to send President-elect Donald Trump a message...

SecDef nod calls for 'battles of annihilation” with “no survivors” against terror group, while beating drums of all-out war with Iran.

Americans can take some solace in the fact that there is an effective way to fight discrimination. Just check out how Israel is managing to integrate a large, once overwhelmingly hostile minority: the Arabs.
