Meet the Global Jihad

February 27, 2015

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Welcome to the global jihad. The Islamic State executioner heretofore dubbed “Jihadi John” turns out to be a Kuwaiti national who grew up in Britain in a well-off family, got a good education there and became a computer scientist. He fought in Africa with al Shabab before signing on with the Islamic State in Syria.

Mohamed Emwazi’s personal story is but the latest refutation of the official meme that only certain jihadist groups and their disaffected, impoverished recruits pose a threat.  Actually, we confront a truly global movement and “jobs for jihadists” won’t defeat it.

Millions of young Muslims the world over are being inspired by Emwazi’s devotion to shariah, his terrifying jihadist feats in its service and his resulting notoriety. We need a new strategy for defeating them.

Say No to Lynch

February 26, 2015

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

President Obama has acted unconstitutionally in extending amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.  To his credit, Speaker John Boehner has responded appropriately thus far – leading his caucus and chamber to exercise the “power of the purse,” eliminating all funding for Team Obama’s serial unconstitutional actions.

Unfortunately, his Senate counterpart, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, has decided to throw in the towel on such a principled response to presidential lawlessness. Sen. McConnell’s effective collapse on a funding-cutoff for amnesty simply rewards Obama’s misconduct. 

All the more reason why Leader McConnell must now block the nomination of Lorretta Lynch as the next Attorney General. We don’t need – and can’t afford – at Justice someone who, like Eric Holder, enables this President’s faithless execution of his sworn duty to protect and defend the Constitution.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s Friend in Congress

February 25, 2015

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Yesterday, the Center for Security Policy released a dossier showing that Rep. Andre Carson, Democrat of Indiana, has long been personally associated with individuals and organizations tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.  The government has established in court that the Brotherhood’s mission is “destroying Western civilization from within.”

Rep. Carson is not just a Member of Congress.  He was recently appointed to the House Intelligence Committee.  That’s the panel responsible for overseeing the most sensitive of U.S. efforts to understand and counter all enemies, foreign and domestic. 

That this obvious security problem has so far gone unremarked and uncorrected underscores official Washington’s dangerous failure to address appropriately the Muslim Brotherhood threat.  Worse, it can only be seen by our enemies as further evidence of the inevitability of their victory.

Don’t Go Wobbly on Amnesty

February 24, 2015

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Twenty-five years ago, then-British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher warned her American counterpart, “This is no time to go wobbly, George,” when it came to dealing forcefully with aggression by Saddam Hussein.

The same should now be said to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in the face of successive, anti-constitutional immigration edicts by President Obama.

Sen. McConnell yesterday signaled a willingness to try to finesse Democratic objections that have kept the Department of Homeland Security from being funded.  Unfortunately, his approach would effectively assure  continued presidential trampling of congressional lawmaking prerogatives.

House Republicans led by Rep. Jeff Duncan are circulating a letter intended to buck up any attempt to go wobbly. Tell your representatives to hold the line on defunding Obama’s executive amnesty and other immigration travesties.

Hold the Line on Defunding Obama’s Overreach

February 23, 2015

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

This week, legislators will demonstrate whether they are going to fulfill their oath of office to “support and defend the Constitution. Or whether they will be complicit in Barack Obama’s serial violations of his. 

The test will come as Senate Democrats hold hostage funding for the Department of Homeland Security unless Republicans allow the President to continue to amend, or eviscerate, immigration laws without congressional assent.

Hats off to House Republicans who have refused to compromise the constitutional principle that only Congress can make law. Their Senate counterparts are to be congratulated for, to date, not folding either.

If our Republic is to survive the next two years of Team Obama’s trashing the Constitution, Congress must hold the line.  The DHS funding bill is the place to start.

Keep Your Hands Off Our Internet

February 20, 2015

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

One of the most important symbols, and enablers, of 21st Century America is our Internet. Innovation, free enterprise and the nation have benefited enormously from what has been a bipartisan consensus that subjected the “Net” to minimal official regulation and interference. Until now.

Unfortunately, last year, President Obama declared the Internet should be treated as a public utility, subject to extensive control by government regulators. Most of his appointees on the Federal Communications Commission seem disposed shortly to implement Mr. Obama’s dictate.

Worse yet, dissenting past and present FCC commissioners are warning that doing so would play into the hands of hostile powers and international bureaucrats anxious to wrest control from us over the Internet.  

If you wondered what havoc Barack Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of the United States would entail, look no further.

Who’s Lying About Islamic Supremacism

February 19, 2015

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Yesterday, President Obama said “it is a lie” when leaders of the Islamic State and al Qaeda describe themselves as “holy warriors in defense of Islam.”  He insisted that they are “terrorists” who have “perverted Islam.”  We are not, he proclaimed, “at war with Islam.”  Mr. Obama even declared “no religion is responsible for terrorism.”

Someone is lying, all right.  Unfortunately, it is our President, not our jihadist enemies. 

The truth was recently exposed by another president, Muslim Egypt’s elected leader Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.  He blamed the authorities of Islam, not terrorists, for “antagonizing the entire world.” In other words, it is their practice of the faith, not “terrorists,” who are the problem.

Our President’s lying to the American people about that reality amounts to material support for our enemies.

Obama’s Legacy is More Jihad

February 18, 2015

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

The backdrop for today’s White House “Countering Violent Extremism Summit” will be the latest outrage by the Islamic State – its mass immolation of 45 captured Kurdish soldiers.

Like his previous claims to have put al Qaeda “on the path to defeat,” any assertion by President Obama that he is successfully countering such – to use his phrase – “violent extremism” should be seen for what it is: a fraud perpetrated on the American people. 

As you listen to news accounts of actual or pledged “progress” at Team Obama’s international summit, keep this in mind: the number, reach and ambitions of global jihadists today constitute vastly more serious problems for peace- and freedom-loving peoples than was the case six years ago.  If allowed to continue unchecked, they will imperil our children and grandchildren. Some legacy, Mr. President.

Violent Extremism is Jihad

February 17, 2015

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Tomorrow, President Obama will try to put the proverbial lipstick on a pig.  Actually, in deference to the sensibilities of the many Muslims in attendance at his “Countering Violent Extremism Summit,” it won’t be a pig, but never mind.

The President will try to obscure a very ugly reality:  In Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran and, yes, our own country, he has consistently aligned his administration with jihadists. 

And no matter how often he says it, the problem is not “violent extremists.” It is such Islamic supremacists and their holy war. 

They are avowed enemies of this country – at home and abroad – and perceive what America is doing under this President as submission, which is a formula for more jihad, not less. 

Mr. Obama: Stop obscuring, excusing and enabling global jihad.

Jihadists on the March

February 16, 2015

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

This weekend, Islamic supremacists in Libya beheaded twenty-one kidnapped Egyptian Coptic Christians, who were accused of being “crusaders.”  That’s an absurd, if perennial, jihadist association to which President Obama shamefully lent credibility at the recent National Prayer Breakfast

Meanwhile, jihadists also viciously attacked free-speech advocates and Jews in Denmark. More were left dead and wounded in furtherance of the Islamists’ objective of imposing the blasphemy and anti-Semitic dictates of their totalitarian ideology, shariah.

Unfortunately, we can only expect more such barbarity as long as the Free World refuses to recognize – let alone defeat – the global jihad. The perpetrators are emboldened when we ignore the plight of Christians, when terrified Jews flee Europe and when we accept restrictions on freedom of expression.
