The Trouble with Gina

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. 

President Trump has been persuaded that Gina Haspel should be the Central Intelligence Agency’s next Director.  Curiously, she is being strongly recommended for that job by men who have used the CIA and/or other elements of the intelligence community as Deep State weapons to try to destroy him, his campaign and his administration.

Perhaps that’s because Ms. Haspel helped one of them, Obama’s Director John Brennan, dismantle America’s human intelligence capabilities. Or perhaps they knew about her what the rest of us only learned during a Senate confirmation hearing on Wednesday:  The nominee testified that she would disobey a direct and lawful order from the President in the service of a “higher moral authority.” 

President Trump has tried entrusting national security organizations to insubordinate subordinates.  It’s proven to be a debilitating mistake, one that should not be repeated now at the CIA.

The President, his wife and vice president took the extraordinary step of welcoming home at 2:00 a.m. three American citizens held hostage by North Korea’s dictator.  Their freeing is a welcome prelude to an upcoming meeting between Mr. Trump and that dictator, Kim Jong-un. Let’s hope it signals Kim’s readiness to make other concessions resulting in his country’s denuclearization.

Kim must also be pressed to stop his regime’s brutal oppression, particularly of those like the three hostages, who are Christians. Open Doors says followers of Christ in North Korea are the planet’s most heavily persecuted. They dare to believe in a God whose name is not Kim Jong-un.

A Trump administration that champions the world’s persecuted Christians must address the reality that a nation that treats its own people so brutally is unlikely to pose no threat to ours.

He Did It!

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

He did it!  Yes, folks, President Trump rejected the advice of feckless European allies and appeasers in this county and withdrew the United States yesterday from the fraudulent Obamabomb deal with Iran. 

Of course, that’s not the end of the challenge we will face from the mullahs and their proxies, like Hezbollah. Tehran is threatening harsh retaliation, even as officials in France, Germany and Britain insist their nations will continue to observe the agreement and otherwise do business with – and help prop up – the dangerous, Sharia-supremacist  regime in Tehran. 

But Mr. Trump’s action makes clear that the Iranian threat is actually growing, not contained.  Henceforth, those enabling it will be exposed. And the ayatollahs will be denied the veneer of legitimacy they have used to oppress the people of Iran – whose liberation is our best chance actually to end that threat.

President Trump will decide today the fate of the Obamabomb “political understanding” with Iran.  It should be a no-brainer.  After all, he recognizes that it’s the worst deal ever negotiated. And Israel proved the Iranians use military facilities off-limits to Western inspectors to pursue covertly their nuclear ambitions.

Worse yet, even if the mullahs were not cheating on their international obligations, the so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action allows them to retain – and, in some cases, upgrade – what they need to have a full-scale nuclear weapons enterprise.

Still, Mr. Trump is under tremendous pressure, both foreign and domestic, to perpetuate this national security fraud. Fortunately, he knows doing so would be tantamount to surrendering to one of the world’s most dangerous regimes – legitimating, empowering and emboldening it to our great peril.

Mr. President, just say “No” to the fatally flawed Obamabomb deal.

John Kerry was a terrible Secretary of State.  Among other disasters, he led the negotiation of a “political understanding” with Iran concerning its covert nuclear weapons program.  President Trump has rightly described it as the “worst deal in history.”

That’s because Mr. Kerry capitulated to the mullahs’ demands on virtually every point.  It got so bad that our European allies complained that Kerry’s delegation behaved like lawyers for the Iranians.

Now, we learn that John Kerry is still serving as an advocate for a country whose official policy is “Death to America.” He appears to be violating the law by secretly meeting with officials in Iran and Europe to try to undermine President Trump – who rightly believes we should stop pretending the so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action prevents an Iranian bomb, when in fact this “Obamabomb” deal actually enables it.

Yesterday, on the occasion of the National Day of Prayer, President Trump addressed the plight of people suffering the world’s largest – and most overlooked – humanitarian crisis. With his leadership, it just may be possible to do something material about the heavy persecution of 215 million Christians all over the globe. 

He said, “We know that millions of people in Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea and other countries suffer under repressive and brutal regimes.  America stands with all people suffering oppression and religious persecution. 

In addition, the President signed an executive order intended “to make it clear that religious freedom is a priority throughout his administration.”

Those of us involved with the Save the Persecuted Christians Coalition welcome Mr. Trump’s growing engagement on behalf of those persecuted for following their faith, and call on him to identify and hold accountable those responsible.

Communist China has been at war with the United States at least since two of its senior colonels published a book entitled Unrestricted Warfare in 1999.  They recommended myriad techniques for taking down this country long before the Chinese military became powerful enough to wage the old-fashioned kinetic kind of war decisively. 

Presidential trade advisor Peter Navarro brings a deep understanding of China’s asymmetric strategy to difficult conversations he and other senior Trump officials will have this week with their counterparts in Beijing. His myriad books, articles and videos, including Death by China, have long warned about hostile Chinese intentions – and the great strides they have made to act on them. 

Successive U.S. administrations have largely ignored the cumulative effects of decades of Beijing’s economic and other attacks. Fortunately, Dr. Navarro and President Trump know we can do so no longer.

“Heart of Nuba” is a critically acclaimed film documenting in microcosm the horrific – but largely unremarked – outrage of our time: the brutal persecution of an estimated 215 million Christians around the world.

The film reveals the plight of the people of the Nuba Mountains in Sudan and American Dr. Tom Catena who has, for over a decade, been heroically caring for these latest victims of genocidal attacks by the Sharia-supremacist Sudanese government of Omar al-Bashir.

There’s a screening of Heart of Nuba in Washington, D.C. tonight.  It would be good if former House Speaker John Boehner would attend. He’s been paid handsomely to lobby on behalf of Sudan’s pariah dictator and indicted war criminal.  The film’s director, Ken Carlson, will be taking questions.  I am sure his audience would have a few as well for Bashir’s enabler, the erstwhile Speaker Boehner.

Yesterday, Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu delivered what should be the death blow to the national security fraud John Kerry once acknowledged was nothing more than a “political understanding” with Iran.  President Trump has long and properly denounced this Obamabomb deal as the worst one in history. 

Mr. Netanyahu disclosed that his country had managed to steal half-a-ton of secret Iranian materials documenting the mullahs’ nuclear weapons ambitions and covert programs.  They prove, as he put it, Iran’s leaders have “lied, big time.”

Apologists for the deal insist there’s nothing to see here folks, move along.  President Trump knows better. 

It takes a special kind of stupid to believe that people proven to have lied in the past and taken extraordinary steps to hide their activities aren’t doing the same thing now. The Obamabomb deal enables that to continue, and must be terminated.

The “civilization jihad” is underway in Michigan. That’s the stealthy, subversive warfare the Muslim Brotherhood employs to “destroy Western civilization from within.”

The Brotherhood and other Sharia-supremacists insinuate themselves and their influence operations into government, the media, schools, popular culture, businesses, other faith communities and politics. And anyone who notices – let alone objects – is slandered as an “Islamophobe” and bigot.

That’s what happening at the moment to State Sen. Patrick Colbeck, who is running for Michigan governor in a crowded field that includes a suave doctor with unacknowledged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Abdul el-Sayed.  And prominent figures on both sides of the political aisle are submitting to demands to denounce Sen. Colbeck and suppress his warnings.

Such appeasement will intensify, not terminate the threat Sharia-supremacism poses to Michigan – and America, and must be opposed.
