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.

More than fifty days after mass civil disobedience began in Venezuela, more than 50 people have died at the hands of the government. People have lost fear and the government is resorting to more measures that are repressive to subdue the population.

A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and drive out the extremists. Drive them out...”

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
