Congratulations to Neil Gorsuch, a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in Denver, whom president Trump has nominated to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by the death of conservative justice Antonin Scalia.
Nikitas3.com will compose a full editorial in the near future as more information comes in about judge Gorsuch. He is the son of Ann Gorsuch Burford who was EPA administrator for 22 months under Ronald Reagan.
Gorsuch was on a short list of nominees who have been vetted for their conservative views. This should be a relief to those of us who saw three justices picked by Republican presidents who ended up being either “swing” voters or liberal – Anthony Kennedy and Sandra Day O’Connor (chosen by Reagan) or David Souter (picked by Bush 41).
Now here is today’s main editorial:
Here is a quote that shows us precisely where we are going with terrorism under president Trump (the phrase “without the uniforms” refers to terrorists, who do not wear military uniforms). Trump said:
We have evil that lurks around the corner without the uniforms. Ours is harder because the people that we’re going against, they don’t wear uniforms. They’re sneaky, dirty rats. And they blow people up in a shopping center. And they blow people up in a church. These are bad people.
When you’re fighting Germany, they had their uniforms, and Japan, and they had their uniforms and they had their flags on the plane and the whole thing. We are fighting sneaky rats right now that are sick and demented. And we’re going to win.
OK, folks, in his first weeks in office president Trump is proving to us that America and the civilized world are finally going to fight back against these “dirty rats” and smash them so that they will never come back. And we can smash them easily. No question. We have the power. All we need is the right leadership.
This president already launched air strikes on terrorist sites in his first days in office to show that he means business. And so if you wonder why the Syrian army suddenly was able to re-take the key city of Aleppo and start to wind down the civil war there, it is because the ISIS terrorists who have been fighting against the Syrian government are packing up and running away in fear of one thing – Donald J. Trump.
The reason that these terrorists have been able to wreak so much havoc over the last 40 years is because the globalist elite including Obama and Jimmy Carter and Angela Merkel in Germany and the French leader Francois Hollande and dozens of others across the US and Europe have been letting it happen.
Happily, these leaders are falling like dominoes. Anti-globalism is sweeping the world. Hollande has a 12% approval rating and will not even run for re-election this year. Merkel’s favorability is plummeting every day and she even may lose in a primary challenge this Spring after 12 years in office(!) Hillary Clinton is gone. Closed-border populists are surging all over Europe. A Trump-like figure is already looking strong to be elected the next Canadian prime minister.
Meanwhile, look at what else Trump said. This is fantastic, from the Christian Broadcasting Network:
In an exclusive interview President Donald Trump says persecuted Christians will be given priority when it comes to applying for refugee status in the United States.
“We are going to help them. They’ve been horribly treated. Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible, at least very tough to get into the United States? If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible and the reason that was so unfair, everybody was persecuted in all fairness, but they were chopping off the heads of everybody but more so the Christians. And I thought it was very, very unfair.”
Great. Finally we are going to start seeing the US government treating our Christian brothers and sisters like they deserve to be treated. Meanwhile the Muslim refugees from Syria can go to Muslim nations. There is no reason for them to come to the United States. They don’t even seem to want to assimilate. So let them assimilate in Muslim nations. It will be much easier.
This terrorism could have been dealt with easily but Obama would not even identify the enemy by referring to them as “radical Muslims” or anything of the sort.
Obama refused to identify radical Muslims because he did not want to defeat them – he wanted them to defeat us. After all, his black Muslim African father hated Britain for its colonial rule in Kenya and so Obama is picking up that flag and is extrapolating it to the whole Western world.
These terrorists have been winning victory after victory since the late 1970s when Iran first fell to radical Islam under Democrat US president Jimmy Carter, who allowed it to happen through passivity. Since then we have not used our military force and our intelligence agencies to anywhere near full effect. 9/11 itself was a total failure of intelligence and national security vigilance, nothing more, nothing less.
The terrorists have been winning largely because the Democrats and socialists in America have been waging a political war on our police and our military and our intelligence agencies for 50 years now.
This ‘war’ really ramped up with the Church Committee hearings of 1975, chaired by Idaho Democrat US senator Frank Church. The committee attacked the CIA ruthlessly, and got full national media coverage, and that weakened America and put the world into danger too.
Now the civilized world is dealing with terror threats every day. And while Soviet communism was defeated, communists live on and are allied with militant Muslims. The question is: Why?
The answer is that these two forces have utterly failed on their own. Communism has produced only genocide, misery and poverty while Islam itself has produced nations that are poor, oppressed and backward. The only Muslim nations with high living standards are the ones that happen to be sitting on pools of oil.
So the two failed ideologies have teamed up and are attacking the West as one. That is why left-wing politicians are not fighting violent Islam; because they are allied with it. That is also why socialists and Democrats in the US and Europe are closely allied with Muslim-rights groups.
This alliance is called Islamic Socialism. It means that two forces have teamed up – socialism/communism and religious Islam.
Normally you might think that atheistic communism would have nothing in common with a radical religious ideology, but you would be wrong.
They are teaming up as a matter of convenience. In Islamic Socialist nations communists control the economy while the militant Islamists oversee the religious needs of the people. Since they are both totalitarian in nature, they are a perfect match and a total assault on human liberty.
Now look at how negligent these leftists are about terrorism. In the November 2015 attack in Paris, a brother of two of the terrorists worked in the city administration in the Brussels, Belgium suburb of Molenbeek. Look at this excerpt from Foxnews.com shortly after the Paris terror attack to show what sensible Europeans are up against:
The names of at least three of the ISIS terrorists who carried out (the November 13) deadly attacks in Paris were known to the mayor of a Brussels (Belgium) suburb in early 2014, it was revealed this week. Molenbeek Mayor Francoise Schepmans admitted to The New York Times that she had received a list containing more than 80 names and addresses of people suspected of links to Islamic militants. The paper reported that the list of names included Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the suspected mastermind of the (Paris) attacks; as well as Brahim and Salah Abdeslam, one of whom blew himself up on that deadly night while the other fled to Belgium after apparently abandoning his suicide mission.
“What was I supposed to do about them? It is not my job to track possible terrorists,” Schepmans told the paper, adding that tracking homegrown terrorists “is the responsibility of the federal police.” The Daily Telegraph reported that Brahim and Salah Abdeslam lived together in an apartment visible from the mayor’s office approximately 100 yards from Molenbeek City Hall. A third Abdeslam brother, Mohamed, who has repeatedly called for Salah Abdeslam to turn himself in, works in the city administration.
The Times report did not clarify what Schepmans did with the information she was given. Elsewhere in the report, the mayor of Verviers, where police broke up a terror plot led by Abaaoud in January, told The Times she was informed by Belgium’s security services that her town was home to 34 suspected jihadists.
So the brother of two terrorists works for the city administration in Molenbeek. Don’t you think that this mayor might have spotted the same last name on the terror list and started an inquiry?
In a normal world, yes. But expectedly, no. This is modern Europe for you, with widespread left-wing negligence about and even collusion with Islamists. Schepmans should be removed from office for dereliction of duty, and tried if there is legal cause (like abetting the enemy).
