Punish North Korea

December 19, 2014

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Three things are clear following North Korean hackers’ cyber attack on Sony Pictures over its new film, “The Interview.”

First, that country’s despotic ruler, Kim Jong-Un, has no sense of humor – especially when he’s the butt of the joke.

Second, even desperately poor Third World countries now have access to asymmetric warfare techniques that enable them to threaten – or even to attack – the assets of the most powerful of nations.   

And third, disclosing embarrassing emails and divulging proprietary information is nothing compared to what such cyber war can inflict. We now are on notice that Russia, China and Iran – all allies and enablers of North Korea –have the ability to penetrate, manipulate and possibly destroy our electric grid.

Protecting our critical infrastructure and punishing North Korea should be two of our top priorities.

Obama Props Up the Castros and Endangers our Republic

December 18, 2014

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

We have entered a truly dangerous period for our Republic.  Last month, President Obama effectively ended the constitutional system of checks and balances by unilaterally remaking U.S. immigration laws.

Yesterday, he unilaterally overturned U.S. statutes embargoing Cuba in order to provide life-support to its communist dictatorship.  He cynically waited until Congress had left town for the holidays. But the President is clearly unconcerned that he will be repudiated by lawmakers.  After all, nearly three-quarters of the Senate voted last weekend declaring his unconstitutional amnesty to be constitutional.

Unless real opposition develops, expect still worse from Team Obama. Normalization of relations with an Iran it has allowed to become nuclear armed is a distinct possibility.  And further, “fundamental transformation” of America will continue to shred our Constitution, embolden our enemies and diminish our country.

Abandon the Two-State Non-Solution

December 17, 2014

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

For over two decades, successive American administrations and governments of Israel have tested a very dubious proposition.  They have pursued the idea of a Palestinian state and, to that end, made serial concessions – both territorial, financial and political – even though just negotiating such a state, let alone its realization, has imperiled Israel, not advanced regional peace.

A prime U.S. architect of this reckless policy is former Ambassador Martyn Indyk.  Last week, Indyk and the so-called “peace process” and “two-state solution” he has championed were utterly decimated by Israeli Economy Minister Naftali Bennett in what amounted to a debate at the Brookings Institution.

If you care about the future of Israel and what America needs to do to help it survive in a dangerous neighborhood, check out the video at SecureFreedom.org – and then pass it on.

The Death Cult Called Shariah

December 16, 2014

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

The murderous hostage-taking in Sydney by a jihadist who sought to tie his action to the so-called Islamic State prompted Australia’s Prime Minister to describe the perpetrator as part of a “death cult.”

This cult has another name that even robust politicians like Tony Abbott never use.  It’s the one the jihadists themselves invariably employ, though: “Shariah.”

While not all Muslims embrace this ideology, the authorities of the faith do.  It inculcates in its adherents the belief that their martyrdom in the process of forcing others, through jihad, to submit to shariah is the surest path to paradise. 

We must understand and acknowledge this global jihad movement for what it is: Yes, a death cult, but one embraced, supported and enabled by regimes and groups the world over as shariah.

The Senate’s Infuriating Endorsement of Obama’s Amnesty

December 15, 2014

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Washington politicos are once again furious with Senator Ted Cruz. Once again, he has stood up for the Constitution and the public’s expectation that their elected officials would protect our Republic against a president bent on “fundamentally transforming” it.

That was the unmistakable message from voters in the last election concerning Barack Obama’s clearly unconstitutional plan to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens by executive fiat, and without Congress’ approval.

Yet, when Senator Cruz asked the Senate to vote on whether President Obama had acted constitutionally, twenty Republican senators joined all the Democrats in saying he had. 

Anger is warranted, all right.  But it should be directed at those who are enabling the mutation, and ultimately the destruction, of our Constitution, not the leader of those trying to prevent it: Ted Cruz.

The Saudi’s War on U.S. Energy Security

December 12, 2014

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

For decades, the OPEC cartel has artificially hiked up oil prices by manipulating supply. When demand would drop, OPEC nations would simply cut production. And members of the cartel got rich at our expense. 

At the moment, however, Saudi Arabia has decided that there is something more important than short-term profits. The Saudis are refusing to cut production – outraging OPEC members critically dependent upon inflated oil prices.

The reason? Saudi royals are determined to drive new American oil producers out of business – before they constitute too much of a threat to the cartel and its ability to set world prices.

U.S. consumers are benefiting from reduced gas prices. And bad actors in Russia, Venezuela and Iran are being badly hurt. But we can’t allow the Saudis to strangle our prospects for energy security.

A Must-See Video on Grid Vulnerability

December 11, 2014

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

One of the smartest – and funniest – guys I have ever known is Bill Whittle. He brings his intellect and humor to bear in superb “Afterburner” video commentaries he posts online at PJTV.com. 

This week, Bill focuses on what is the single most serious danger facing America. In a short video called “Lights Out,” he addresses the acute vulnerability of the U.S. electric grid to enemy action and intense solar storms. 

Everyone you know should see this unforgettably impactful treatment of a truly nation-ending threat.  The people you love, the people who represent you in Congress, your state government officials, your emergency responders, your local media should all see “Lights Out.”

But start by seeing it yourself.  It’s a matter of life and death. Quite possibly yours. So go to PJTV.com. Please, do it today.

Sanction Iran, Not Israel

December 10, 2014

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

President Obama promised to “fundamentally transform” the United States of America.  The most alarming of these transformations may be his switching sides in what used to be called the War on Terror.

Thanks to Team Obama, we are increasingly aligned with, supportive of and enabling those most aggressively threatening freedom-loving people like us.

A prime example of how wrong-headed – and dangerous – this transformation is can be found in recent reports that Mr. Obama is considering imposing sanctions on Israel over its construction of so-called “settlements.”  

Yet, he has simultaneously been dismantling the sanctions regime on Iran, the nation in the region that is our most dangerous enemy – and Israel’s.

By clearly signaling that he does not have Israel’s back, President Obama is inviting the next – and possibly cataclysmic – war against our ally.  And us.

Feinstein Shouts ‘Fire’

December 9, 2014

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

American embassies around the world are bracing for violence. Obama administration officials and Republican legislators have warned of impending death and destruction. 

What’s precipitating such concerns is a self-inflicted wound, prompted by the intransigence of Senator Dianne Feinstein, who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee. She and other panel Democrats insist on releasing publicly a critique of George W. Bush administration use of harsh interrogation techniques after 9/11.

Even Democrats in the CIA are criticizing this so-called “torture” report as unbalanced and incomplete.

We shouldn’t refrain from publishing content just because jihadists will object.  That would amount to self-imposing their freedom-crushing shariah-blasphemy laws here.

Disseminating defective government reports certain to reinforce the grievance narratives our enemies use to justify their Islamic supremacism and jihad, however, is recklessly irresponsible.

A New Imperative to Secure the Grid

December 8, 2014

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Iranian leaders have long stated that they seek a world “without America.” Prior to President Obama’s disastrous diplomacy, U.S. leaders have sought to prevent the mullahs from getting the Bomb for that reason, among others. 

Last week, however, a firm called Cylance issued a frightening report about extensive Iranian cyberwarfare operations over the past two years. It suggests that Tehran may already be in a position to destroy this country – without firing a shot.

Hackers believed to be associated with the Iranian regime have been able to penetrate the control systems of America’s critical infrastructure – including those of our electric utilities. Were they to disrupt or destroy such systems, the United States would lose power for prolonged periods. And without electricity, many millions of us would die.

We must secure the grid, now.
