The U.S. government has known for thirteen years that the Muslim Brotherhood’s mission in America is “destroying Western civilization from within” by our hands.  Consequently, none of these Sharia-supremacists should have been allowed anywhere near our government. 

So, when then-Rep. Michele Bachmann and four of her colleagues asked the State Department in 2012 about the ties its Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin, had with the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood, their concerns deserved careful scrutiny.  Instead, Ms. Bachmann especially was vilified as an “Islamophobe” and the questions went unanswered.

Yesterday, Judicial Watch revealed that Ms. Abedin was allowed to remove – and presumably destroy – papers about “Muslim engagement” when she and her boss, Hillary Clinton, left the Department. 

Inquiring minds want to know:  Did Abedin actually enable the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration, yet another example of the Clinton team’s betrayal of our national security?

The Republican leadership wants to jam through Congress a Christmas present for millions of illegal aliens already in this country – and possibly millions more itching to come.  It’s called amnesty.

Never mind that the American people elected President Trump and  GOP-controlled House and Senate majorities to secure the border and stop reckless immigration policies by those who want the opposite. The voters are about to be betrayed. Ditto the national security. 

Unless three things are done before people here illegally get an amnesty, we’ll be creating a powerful magnet for more of them:  First, we have to secure the border.  Second, we have to require that all employers use the E-Verify system to ensure they’re not hiring illegal aliens.  And third, we have to stop “chain migration.”

If you agree but your elected representatives don’t, let them know they not representing you.

Candidate Trump won the White House, in part, on a platform of defeating “radical Islamic terrorism.” It called for not only naming this threat, but for understanding its wellspring in an ideology called Sharia, stopping more of its adherents from coming here and countering their networks radicalizing in our communities.

Much of the blame for there being little progress on these fronts lies with the President’s National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster. He has not just opposed this agenda. He has sabotaged it. 

Yesterday, though, Gen. McMaster indicated that a new national security strategy will recognize a reality he previously rejected – namely, we do confront a radical Islamic ideology.  But, he insists that we can work with some of its Muslim Brotherhood practitioners.

H.R. McMaster has wasted a precious year of Donald Trump’s presidency.  He must not be allowed to do so any further.

Yesterday, a Sharia-supremacist from Bangladesh tried to kill innocent Americans in a New York subway station, reportedly because he was upset about Israeli retaliation for attacks Hamas launched from Gaza. Fortunately, he did not succeed in this jihadist ambition. 

But we have created conditions in which it is surely just a matter of time before others do succeed in murdering large numbers of us in the name of Sharia.  After all, as Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz has pointed out, just since 9/11 we have given permanent residency to more than 170,000 immigrants from Bangladesh.  And over 1.8 million in total from 47 Muslim-majority countries.

Fortunately, not all of these people embrace Sharia or seek to impose it on the rest of us. But it is reckless to let in more who might, and we need to counter those here who do.

The Islamists and their enablers in foreign policy establishments around the world insist that the Palestinian conflict with Israel is of paramount importance to peace in the Middle East. They are denouncing President Trump – and in some cases violently protesting – over his moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Here’s a reality check:  The U.S. intelligence community reportedly believes Iran has bought and taken delivery of three nuclear weapons and a dirty bomb from North Korea.  If true, it’s the predictable result of allowing the regime in Pyongyang to get away with developing and acquiring such weapons and giving $150 billion to the Iranian mullahs to buy them. 

Think that’s not a surpassingly serious problem? Think again. 

Mr. Trump was right to recognize the reality of Israel’s capital. But we better focus on the reality of not one, but two nuclear-armed pariah states.

Yesterday, an indefatigable champion of freedom announced his resignation from the Congress.  I know Rep. Trent Franks to be a man of profound faith and I pray that he will reconsider this decision and remain in his role as a leader of conscientious and national security-minded conservativism in the House of Representatives. 

Congressman Franks’ resignation was reportedly encouraged by House Speaker Paul Ryan over concerns that the eight-term Arizona representative had spoken with two former staffers about serving as a surrogate to bear a child for his infertile wife and him.  In contrast to the abhorrent acts of sexual harassment or assault by others, if such conversations were considered “insensitive,” an apology would seem to be sufficient – not terminating Mr. Franks’ distinguished and highly moral public service.

Join me in praying and urging that Trent Franks continues that service at franks.house.gov.

Hooray for Donald Trump! Unlike every one of his predecessors since 1995, he actually did what he promised to do with respect to moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the Jewish State’s actual capital, Jerusalem. 

That’s the good news.  The bad news is that his directive envisions a government business-as-usual pace to get this done which is extremely ill-advised.  Taking years to set up a new U.S. embassy on the hotly contested real estate of Jerusalem invites subterfuges by our State Department and/or violence on the part of the Palestinians, and perhaps other Sharia-supremacists.

So, the President must simply direct that the existing U.S. consulate in Jerusalem become the interim embassy immediately.  By effecting this transformation overnight, he could steal a march on his adversaries, at home and abroad – and minimize incentives for their sabotage.

Amidst the unfolding litany of scandals involving men accused of sexually harassing and/or abusing women, there is a curious void – a kind of black hole for revelations and commentary.  No mention is made about the fact that there is present around the world, including here in the United States, an institutionalized mistreatment of females of all ages.

That would be the Islamic totalitarian code its adherents call Sharia.  Among other things, it condones – and in some cases makes obligatory – such horrifically misogynistic practices as wife-beating, marital rape, child marriages, female genital mutilation and so-called “honor killings.”  

If we have reached the point where prominent politicians like Rep. John Conyers, journalists and other celebrities are no longer going to get away with groping and assaulting women and girls, surely we must not tolerate such behavior conducted systematically under the pretext of religious practice.

Seven of the Supreme Court’s nine justices yesterday allowed President Trump’s so-called “travel ban” to go fully into effect.  Finally.  Even if this is technically just a temporary measure, the size of the majority suggests that lower court rulings to the contrary will also ultimately be overturned by the Supremes.

That’s good news for the President.  But more importantly, it’s good news for the presidency – and the country.  The various suits filed by several state attorneys general and others have challenged the authority clearly vested in the nation’s chief executive by both the Constitution and statute to exercise basically complete discretion about who to allow into the United States and who to keep out. 

Mr. Trump properly seeks to exclude those wishing to do us harm from failed and hostile states.  Thankfully, the Supreme Court seems to agree that’s his job.

Leaks to news outlets say President Trump is poised this week to recognize reality:  Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. 

It remains to be seen whether, if such an announcement is indeed made, he goes further and directs the U.S. embassy in the Jewish State to be moved to that capital city from its present location in Tel Aviv.  

For decades, successive winning presidential candidates of both parties have promised to exercise existing statutory authority to move the embassy, only to recoil from doing so once in office. Usually, this bait- and-switch was justified by fear of Arab threats of violence if America effectively endorsed Israel’s claim to Jerusalem.  

Not only should President Trump honor his repeated pre-election commitment and relocate the embassy. While he’s at it, he should also close the Washington office of Israel’s abiding enemy – and ours, the Palestine Liberation Organization.
