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.

President Trump's appeal was more pragmatic and appealed to the Arab leaders own instinct for self-preservation.
Earlier this month, the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, began a speech by saying "English is gradually losing its importance in the EU, so I will speak in French."
In its annual report for 2012-2013, Planned Parenthood said that it did 327,166 abortions in fiscal 2012.
Denuclearizing the Korean peninsula makes sense from an American perspective, but North Korea has nothing to trade or influence to save its nuclear arsenal.
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.
Too many governments are still with those who wave the sword of Mohammed and cry death to the Jews.

The Jihadists chose to lash out at this event in this location on purpose. They pre-selected their victims for this act of war: teenage girls. What does it say about our society in the West today that we seem to only be able to respond to barbaric, bloody acts of war with sadness?
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.
Some unions offer a fertile ground for Islamofascist beliefs

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.
Yes, the good times in Israel are rolling. So much so, that even jailed murderers want to get in on the growing bonhomie. Similar to Aerosmith, imprisoned Palestinian leader and convicted Fatah terrorist Marwan Barghouti has published a list of demands - for ending the hunger strike he kicked off on April 17.
“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.
Supporters of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL) were celebrating online overnight following news of the attack, terrorism analysts reported.
Americans should embrace the good, the bad, and the ugly of U.S. history — rather than shove statues down the memory hole.

“I began to feel numbness in my face, hands, and feet. I began trembling and vomiting. My heart was racing dangerously. I spent the night in a Reykjavik hospital.”
Yesterday, Donald Trump bet his presidency –and perhaps the future national security of the United Sates –on what bookies would have to call a long-shot: the prospect that Sunni Muslim nations, led by Saudi Arabia, will help root out and defeat Sharia-supremacism.
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.
President Trump’s visit to Bethlehem is significant. He met Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem. He met Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem.
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.
“Watching this film is a holy task,” prayed Rabbi Joseph Berman from Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) on March 5 while introducing the anti-Israel movie The Occupation of the American Mind at Washington, DC’s National Cathedral.
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?

Today, the use of anonymous sources has accelerated, and the “sources” being used against President Donald Trump are now openly acknowledged as coming from U.S. intelligence agencies such as the FBI, CIA and NSA.
Accordingly, Trump remains committed to defeating the radical Islamist ideology and is requiring the Arab states join him and to reject the ideology. His demands on the Arab states are reminiscent of Pres Bush’s speech shortly after 9/11 in which Bush said to these countries “Either you are with us or you are against us.”
Is it any wonder that there are millions of Americans who don’t vote or participate in our nation’s debate because they think it doesn’t matter anyway? The “average voter” increasingly feels that the decisions have been made for them.
Suddenly, the demands for a special counsel to investigate allegations of Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election have been satisfied. Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein yesterday appointed former FBI Director Mueller to take on that assuredly thankless task.
Rosenstein is acting under authority granted by the recusal of Attorney General Jeff Sessions in this investigation. Rosenstein apparently gave the White House no heads up on the decision;

What did Trump actually reveal to the Russians? In short, it looks like he told them that we know a guy — let’s call him Mr. X — located in some various location — let’s call it Location Y — who has “discovered” that ISIS wants to kill us all. Specifically, that ISIS wants to use laptops as bombs to take down airliners. Pardon the levity, but… Yeah? And?
