Warning to Congress – North Korea Threat Demands a Secure Grid

SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE

Classified briefings to Congress today about the emerging threat from North Korea must address its most ominous – but least discussed – feature.

For years, a group of national security professionals working together as the Secure the Grid Coalition have been warning that North Korea may already have acquired – and perhaps deployed – the means to destroy the United States, perhaps with a single nuclear bomb.

Two of the Coalition’s top experts, former Clinton CIA Director James Woolsey and Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, assess that Pyongyang could already have placed aboard one of its two orbiting satellites a nuclear device optimized to conduct a devastating electromagnetic pulse attack. If detonated over the United States, one such weapon could destroy our unprotected electric grid – and our nation.

Trump officials and lawmakers are on notice: This threat must be neutralized, and the grid secured.

Obama’s Iran Deal Was Much Worse Than We Suspected

The Federalist

What if Donald Trump had unilaterally shut down every investigation into Russian espionage, released over 20 suspected Russian spies, struck a deal to get rid of sanctions against Russia—in return for honoring deals that had been signed years before—and then lied to the American people about the entire episode?

That’s the Obama Administration’s Iran deal. It might have been the first time the United States has offered extensive concessions to a nation that has continued to destabilize its interests, for nothing in return. But Barack Obama didn’t just support Iran’s position over our allies like Israel (no surprise there, considering his antagonism) or Sunni nations—he supported it ahead of his own Justice Department’s 30-year counterproliferation efforts.

The Threat of Organized Islam in America

Sons of Constitutional Liberty

Although he was unable to overthrow America’s Free Constitutional Republic and America’s free and open society in the short time he was in the White House, Obama did a lot of damage. In the short space of about eight years, Obama did everything he could to accelerate Islamic infestation in America.

It is astonishing how misinformed and gullible so many people seem to be about the threat of organized Islam. Organized Islam in America takes the form of the establishment of mosques, schools, clinics, shelters, and clubs, and necessitates learning the Quran, and learning and attempting to implement Shariah Law. http://shariahthethreat.org/a-short-course-1-what-is-shariah/a-short-course-12-the-muslim-brotherhood-in-america/

The Quran requires killing “infidels” (anyone who is not a Muslim). That right there should bring opposition from American citizens.

If that doesn’t do it, Shariah Law should. Shariah Law is utterly unconstitutional and, therefore, illegal law in the United States.

Punish Legislators Who Insist on Open Borders

SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE

After the Democrats’ drubbing in the 2016 election, one would have thought they would be reluctant to oppose Donald Trump on his signature issue of securing America’s southern border.

The public wants it done, and made Mr. Trump president to do that.

In addition, congressional Democrats had previously voted to build the wall.

But now, Democratic legislators are saying they’ll shut down the government, rather than approve funding for this purpose. Perhaps that’s in part because they know the Republican leadership on Capitol Hill doesn’t want to see Mr. Trump’s promise fulfilled, either.

I say, bring it on. Republicans who help Democrats undermine our national security should be primary-ed. And Democrats beholden to government labor unions must be put on notice that federal employees identified as “non-essential” in case of governmental shut-down will be the first fired when budget cuts have to be made.

Ocala Catholic School Teacher Reprimanded Over Anti-Muslim Reading

The Diocese of Orlando reprimanded the sixth-grade Blessed Trinity teacher for an “unfortunate exhibit of disrespect.”

A Blessed Trinity Catholic School religion teacher has been reprimanded by the Diocese of Orlando after he assigned sixth-grade students to read anti-Muslim excerpts from a 164-year-old text authored by Priest Giovanni Bosco, who later became a saint.

Mark Smythe, who teaches religion and social studies at Blessed Trinity, gave students several printouts of Bosco’s 1853 text that states Prophet Muhammad “degrades and dishonors human nature and by placing happiness in sensual pleasures, reduces man to the level of filthy animals.” The text also refers to Islam as a “monstrous mixture of Judaism, Paganism and Christianity.”

The news was first reported Wednesday afternoon by the Huffington Post as part of its “Documenting Hate” project.

The text also calls the doctrines of the Prophet Muhammad “ridiculous, immoral and corrupting,” according to The Huffington Post story by Christopher Mathias.

The Diocese of Orlando issued a statement about its decision to reprimand the teacher to the Huffington Post. Diocese officials said they would issue the same written statement to the Star-Banner, but that had not been received by press time.

The Diocese of Orlando officials would not answer questions to discuss details about the exact extent of the punishment.

Jacquelyn Flanigan, an associate superintendent with the Diocese of Orlando’s Catholic school system, said in a statement to the Huffington Post that she had spoken with Blessed Trinity’s Principal Jason Halstead and Smythe.

Flanigan stated that after speaking with the two men, the school district decided to “reprimand the teacher for this unfortunate exhibit of disrespect.” Flanigan also said in the statement that the material is also “not consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church.”

Khalid Kamau: DSA Communist Wins Georgia Council Race

New Zeal

Khalid Kamau, a member of the Marxist Democratic Socialists of America has resoundingly won a City Council seat in South Fulton, Georgia’s second largest city.

Also Black Lives Matter activist and Democratic Party member, Khalid Kamau, won 43% of the vote in a five-way primary, then 67% in the April 18th run-off.

Kamau’s impressive victory was won with massive DSA support. Marxists from across the country volunteered in, donated to and phone banked for comrade Kamau’s campaign.

According to Pittsburgh DSA:

Thanks to the work of DSA chapters across the country, including Pittsburgh DSA, Khalid Kamau won a whopping 43% of the vote in a five-way race. Our work helped put Khalid in a commanding 1st place, but it was short of the majority needed to win outright. Now we need to work together to put him over the top in the run-off election, so he can help advance the struggle for municipal victories around wages and housing.

“Far too many elected officials start their day thinking of your boss instead of you — but the working people of South Fulton will have a City Council member on their side: Khalid Kamau,” explained Maria Svart, Democratic Socialists of America’s national director. “Khalid’s win today is a tremendous victory for his community and a shot across the bow for politics as usual nationwide.”

Erin Parks, a Metro Atlanta DSA chapter member and Kamau campaign volunteer expressed enthusiasm: “Khalid’s campaign and victory prove that teamwork and a people-centered platform can prevail against all odds. His win is a harbinger of things to come in the Metro Atlanta progressive movement.”

Khalid entered today’s runoff election after coming in first place in a five-way primary election held in March with 43%. In that race, khalid won twice as many votes as the next runner up, and the highest percentage of any candidate running for any office in South Fulton. DSA members across the country made thousands of phone calls on behalf of khalid for both rounds of the election.

Khalid Kamau’s victory is part of a much bigger plan. DSA sees the new City of South Fulton as an opportunity to create the largest Progressive city in the South.

At February’s Young Democratic Socialists gathering, “Revolution at the Crossroads: Igniting the Socialist Resistance Against Trump,” Khalid Kamau “highlighted the right wing’s long-term strategy, especially their use of local races as a path for base building and candidate training. He argued that the left also needs to employ this strategy.”

In April 2017, Quad Cities Democratic Socialists of America member Dylan Parker was elected to the Rock Island City Council, 5th Ward Alderman, with DSA support.

Parker was the thirteenth DSA member holding elected office in the country, including Carlos Rosa, Chicago’s 35th Ward Alderman, Mike Sylvester of the Maine House of Representatives and Julie Ann Nitsch Austin Community College Board of Trustee in Texas.

Khalid Kamau’s victory is also indicative of DSA’s strong interest in Georgia. With more than 300 members in Atlanta alone, DSA aims to use upcoming Mayoral, Congressional and the next Gubernatorial race, to return a much more vulnerable than you might think Red State back to the Blue column.

Khalid Kamau’s victory was just a practice run.
