Freedom loving Americans want Congress to address the most serious… the most urgent issue… facing America and our safety as a Nation: TERRORISM. Do you think President Obama truly recognizes the grave dangers America faces from the deeply held religious beliefs that fuel radical Islamic terrorism? And, do you think the President has given the FBI and local law enforcement officers the support they need to thwart terrorist attacks here at home?
Now is the time to urgently put pressure on the President and the Congress to put AMERICA’S SAFETY FIRST! With your help, we can pressure President Obama and Congress to confront the growing and gathering threats to our homeland and TAKE ACTION!
The country that you and I grew up loving and being proud of is slowly becoming a hotbed of terrorist activity now that America is averaging one serious terrorist attack each month under President Obama’s watch… even as he insists the threat from radical Islam, from ISIL, from Al-Qaeda, and domestic terrorists is overblown and that he’s successfully protecting the nation.
And while sad, the real tragedy – the true anguish – is that our freedom is slowly being replaced with fear. Fear of terrorism both foreign and domestic. Fear of terrorists that our elected representatives swore an oath to protect us from.
The past 7+ years have brought nothing but terrorist threats to the American people… Americans who only demand 2 things from their government: freedom and protection.
What the Obama administration is telling us [ loud and clear ] is that both in substance and reality the war on terror (in their minds) is over. And there seems to be more concern for the rights of terrorists and a general lack of concern for the public.
This has to stop! The nation that you and I love is on the verge of being lost forever. You and I both understand the nature and magnitude of the challenges our nation faces; we also recognize the IMMINENT DANGERS we must accept if we don’t face the challenges head on – and those dangers look like the Nice, Paris, or Istanbul Airport terror attacks.
WE CANNOT ALLOW OURSELVES TO GROW NUMB TO THESE ATROCITIES! IT IS TIME FOR US TO GIVE THE WASHINGTON POLITICIANS A DOSE OF REALITY:
TRUTH ABOUT THE ORLANDO ATTACK: In the aftermath of the attack, President Obama dismissed Omar Mateen as a “homegrown” declared that “there is no evidence so far that he was in fact directed by ISIL.
FACT: The Islamic State commander, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, gave a speech calling on supporters to carry out killings in the United States during the holy month of Ramadan. “The smallest action you do in the heart of their land is dearer to us than the largest action by us, and more effective and more damaging to them,” he said. Mateen answered al-Adnani’s call,
Orlando is awash in blood, and the Islamic State claimed credit for the attack. Mateen was an Islamic State terrorist. This was an Islamic State attack. And Obama’s stubborn refusal to see this is part of a larger pattern of downplaying or dismissing terrorist dangers. RESULT: 49 Americans killed.
TRUTH ABOUT THE SAN BERNARDINO ATTACK: The day after the ISIS-inspired, radical Muslim terrorists murdered 14 people in San Bernardino, California – President Obama explained that Americans were safe from ISIS attacks. “They will not pose an existential threat to us,” Obama said.
FACT: ISIS praised the couple responsible for the San Bernardino terrorist attack. Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, answered the call to “terrorize crusaders in their very strongholds.” The Islamic State emphasized that “Malik was willing to carry out an attack, unlike many men. Her participation made the attack unique.” RESULT: 14 Americans killed / 17 Americans wounded.
TRUTH ABOUT TERRORISM INSIDE THE U.S.: ISIS is using the Internet in unprecedented ways to call for attacks on American soil. The FBI, Department of Homeland Security, and National Counterterrorism Center have each warned of an extremely high volume of terrorist “chatter” on pro- ISIS social media sites claiming there is so much activity that our intelligence agencies are having a hard time keeping up with it all.
FACT: FBI Director, James Comey, has met with police officials across the country asking for help the FBI needs help to keep tabs on thousands of terrorism suspects. As a result, many local police agencies are adding surveillance teams to help the FBI monitor suspects. RESULT: The FBI doesn’t have enough resources, or the legal authority, to maintain open investigations. Yet they have MANY pending counter-terrorism investigations is EVERY STATE.
As the terrorist threat to our homeland grows, and as the President denies our nation is at risk, Americans must increasingly rely on local Cops to fill the void left by an FBI that’s under resourced and overwhelmed.
Law Enforcement Officers are our first responders – each day they risk their lives to serve and protect ours! But with the anti-police sentiment sweeping the nation and putting police under siege, it makes Americans all the more vulnerable.
The tragic attacks that happened in France raise the question; could those types of attacks happen here? That is the wrong question. It has happened here. The difference is in most cases – WE stopped it.
By “we” I mean the thousands of state and local police officers across our nation that are our country’s eyes and ears in recognizing and preventing terrorist attacks.
The FBI is an effective investigative organization, but they are not the ones on the streets of this nation. It is police departments in both large cities and small towns that will stop a terrorist attempt to blow up a car in Times Square, or take over a school in our heartland. And, of course, they will be the first responders.
If they are not operating at 100%, we are certainly at risk. If they feel unappreciated and under siege, as I know they do, they will not be effective.
Since the deaths of 5 Police Officers in Dallas and then 3 more in Baton Rouge in targeted killings, the media, politicians, and activists like the Black Lives Matter movement have painted our nations’ police as being racist and brutal. This has had a devastating effect on police morale and it is terribly UNFAIR!
One only needs to look at the recent arrest statistics in New York City, which have dropped by more than 50%. Cops are not getting out of their cars and they are only responding to the most dangerous of crimes committed in their presence. They are not going the extra mile as they normally do to scrutinize things around them. In police work, it is called situational awareness – and when police don’t have it we are all in danger.
Needless to say, the challenges facing American security are complex and difficult, yet the solutions are rather simple.
With your help, we can roll back the damage done by this Administration’s 7+ years of ignoring terrorist threats we face and by not supporting the most important resource we have on the front lines – OUR COPS!
President Obama has taken a little over 7 years to rip America apart. The damage to our nation, our identity, and disastrous national security decisions is not something we can recover from in a few months. Yet we must begin.
If you doubt the terrorist threat America faces is real – let me remind you what’s happened in just the last few days: [ A radical Islamist in Paris stalked a police officer to his home where he murdered the officer, then tortured his wife to death in front of their 3 year old son… while streaming it on social media. ]
Or, how — almost daily — domestic terrorists inside the U.S. target, then attack, Police Officers for doing their job to serve and protect us!
