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 fight has been some three years coming, since ISIS took the city in 2014 from the Syrian army. The assault comes none too soon for us and others, considering past and recent ISIS-related terrorist attacks at home and abroad.
The narrow GOP majority in the Senate is not just threatened by Democrat filibusters. There are more than enough Republicans suffering from the malignant pre-condition of libertarian isolationism to flip the balance in the chamber when national security issues are at stake.
“The coalition does not seek to fight Syrian regime, Russian or pro-regime forces partnered with them, but will not hesitate to defend coalition or partner forces from any threat.”
Tillerson was questioned by Texas State Rep. Michael McCaul about whether he shared concerns with National Security Secretary John Kelly regarding the connection between “criminal networks and terrorist networks.”

The memorandum written by former Director Comey memorializing his meeting and conversation with President Trump regarding the FBI’s investigation of potential Russian interference in the 2016 election. For purposes of clarification, this memorandum was reportedly written on or about February 13, 2017 and is the subject of a NYT article … dated May 16, 2017.
Allow me to translate: The investigators have no evidence of Trump campaign coordination with Russia and, if it is possible, they have even less cause to believe there was a bribe, and less still to believe the bribe was conveyed in a deceptive manner that amounted to a felony money-laundering violation.
"This is not an opportunity to talk about difficult matters privately or in a closed environment. This is a circus. It's a national disgrace..."

It could have been so much worse, said Congressman Roger Williams. It would have been a massacre and many Republicans would have had to be replaced.

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.
Attorney Cheryl Nunez, who represents two [muiltated] children, a girl 11 and a boy 5, who are the kids of Dr. Jumana Nagarwala and her husband told a Juvenile Court Judge that the Mosque they all attend paid for Female Genital Mutilation procedures on girls.
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.
