Wake up and smell the jihad, America.
Recent government statistics show: the nation is in more danger from ISIS than those on the left, in both politics and media, would have you believe.
Read this, from Reuters: “U.S. Assistant Attorney General John Carlin said on Monday that more than 110 people have been publicly charged in federal court since late 2013 on counts related to the Islamic State militant group that has overrun much of Syria and Iraq.”
On one hand, that’s good news – the government’s getting the terrorists off the streets.
But on the other hand, that’s dire news. What are the terrorists doing on America’s streets, in the first place?
Donald Trump’s risen in the polls on a promise to make America safer, vowing to shut down borders to illegal crossings, in part, to keep out terrorists masquerading as innocent, job-seeking refugees. But Democrats only want wider doors to migrants.
And that means if Hillary Clinton – who supports the current administration’s open-arm embrace of refugees and immigrants – wins the White House in November, the burden of ensuring America stays free from terrorist attack will be placed squarely on the backs of American citizens.
Carlin actually said as much, during his remarks at the Justice Department.
“Carlin said the U.S. Justice Department needs the American public to be more proactive about alerting federal authorities when they witness someone showing support for foreign terrorist organizations, such as Islamic State,” Reuters reported. “In more than 80 percent of the Islamic State cases that have been prosecuted since 2013, someone in the community of the accused person believed they had witnessed the activity for which the person was ultimately charged.”
Here’s a thought: How about the feds tighten the borders a bit so these ISIS-tied people aren’t in America’s communities in the first place?
Reuters also said the Justice Department charged 60 individuals in the last year for either supporting or committing criminal acts in alliance with ISIS – “the largest annual figure on record.”
