9/11. The D.C. sniper. Fort Hood. The Boston Marathon bombing. The Oklahoma City beheading. San Bernardino. Those are just a few examples of terrorist attacks carried out in America by Islamic extremists. Sadly, we can expect more death and suffering in the long battle ahead.
9/11. The D.C. sniper. Fort Hood. The Boston Marathon bombing. The Oklahoma City beheading. San Bernardino.
Those are just a few examples of terrorist attacks carried out in America by Islamic extremists. Sadly, we can expect more death and suffering in the long battle ahead.
James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, recently told CNN that ISIS can carry out Paris and Brussels-style attacks in the United States. “They do have that capacity,” Clapper said. “That’s something we worry about a lot in the United States, that they could conjure up a raid like they did in Paris or Brussels.”
It should be obvious that we have a problem with radical Islamic terrorism, and we have not yet figured out how to screen out the murderous extremists. Under these conditions, it only makes sense to consider a pause in Muslim immigration.
Yet that commonsense approach to a growing security threat continues to be a huge stumbling block for the left-wing media and the left in general. Sadly, even a shocking number of leaders on the right continue to rule out a pause as “un-American.”
Here’s one example. The late Senator Bob Bennett of Utah, practically on his death bed, reportedly made a point of going around to every Muslim he could find in his hospital to apologize for voters embracing the idea of pausing Muslim immigration.
Quite frankly, I would feel better if I saw more American Muslims apologizing for the death and destruction being committed by their co-religionists!
You asked for it, so we did it!
Last week, I offered a number of suggestions for Congress to fight back against the Obama administration’s outrageous “guidance” letter ordering public schools to allow boys who claim to be girls to use the girls’ bathrooms. We received an avalanche of positive feedback urging us to communicate that message with our elected leaders in Congress.
So today, I am pleased to report that we, along with dozens of conservative leaders, sent a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell demanding that they:
Denounce Obama’s order;
Stand with schools and families that are resisting it;
Hold public hearings forcing administration officials to explain this policy;
Draft legislation clarifying that Washington bureaucrats have no authority to dictate local bathroom policies; and
Vote on this legislation so that the American people know where their representatives stand.
Read our letter here. I promise you, with your continued support and encouragement, we will do everything we can to fight back in defense of our values!
The Intolerant Left
Ryan Bomberger is a brave man. He recently went to Harvard to point out the terrible fact that more black babies in New York City are aborted than born. That is the legacy of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, a eugenicist who wanted to limit reproduction among what she called “the lower classes.”
This is a subject that reasonable, intelligent people should be able to discuss, especially given that Planned Parenthood concentrates its facilities in minority communities. But instead of a rational discussion, Bomberger was shouted down, called the most disgusting names and was even accused of being a racist, a bizarre charge to make against a black man defending black babies.
His experience [WARNING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE] is another shocking example of the growing intolerance and bigotry that is so rampant on America’s college campuses — places that should be havens for free speech and free thought.
It is amazing how the left, which bases so much of its bizarre agenda on demands for tolerance, is increasingly incapable of demonstrating any tolerance for opposing points of view.
Kudos To Heaton
There aren’t many pro-lifers in Hollywood. So I applaud actress Patricia Heaton for her outspoken defense of life and religious liberty.
After the Supreme Court issued its order protecting the Little Sisters of the Poor from Obamacare’s contraception mandate, Heaton tweeted, “Glad #SCOTUS vacated previous ruling against Little Sisters. I guess it dawned on them who the nuns’ boss is!”
