15 Years Later, Values Voter Summit

Gary Bauer spoke at the Family Research
Council's 2016 Values Voters Summit
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: 15 Years Later - There are a lot of issues making headlines this morning.

North Korea tested perhaps its largest nuclear weapon to date.

New polling shows the presidential race is tightening in key states.

More football players are refusing to stand for the National Anthem. Many fans are considering boycotting the NFL.

Iran may have been paid tens of billions of dollars, not just $1.7 billion.

A parasite has been named after Barack Obama.

These are important issues -- well, all but one.

But today I want to put the headlines aside to remember 9/11 and to reflect on what is the most important issue of all -- the war the West is fighting to defend Judeo-Christian civilization against radical Islamic supremacism.

The events of September 11, 2001, transformed America and the world. Thousands of our fellow citizens were brutally murdered that day. Families were shattered and the nation was shaken as planes fell from the sky, slamming into the World Trade Center Towers, the Pentagon and the fields of Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

The true face of radical Islam, previously hidden behind a veil of ignorance, was revealed for the whole world to see. I will never forget the words of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who said that if the terrorists could have killed 300,000, instead of 3,000, they would have.

Fifteen years later -- 15 years later! -- the war against radical Islam rages on. Osama bin Laden may be dead, but we are not safer. A new CNN poll finds that more Americans (50%) feel less safe on this anniversary of 9/11 than we did five years ago (39%) on the tenth anniversary of the attacks. And with good reason.

Al Qaeda's co-religionists among the Islamic State are today rampaging over much of the Middle East and into Africa. They have infiltrated Europe and even America.

Meanwhile, Western leaders are at best clueless. How can you explain Germany's Angela Merkel? She eagerly invited hundreds of thousands of so-called "refugees" into her country and then acts stunned when German women are raped and "refugees" engage in terrorist acts.

After the brutal carnage in Nice, France, left more than 80 people dead, the French prime minister declared, "The times have changed, and France is going to have to live with terrorism."

Thankfully, the British had the good sense to divorce themselves from this insanity -- but the vote was close.

Here in America, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton refuse to identify the enemy. Worse, Obama cut a terrible nuclear deal with the radical Shiite extremists who control the Islamic Republic of Iran. Because of that deal we may see the day when 300,000 Americans, Europeans or Israelis are killed.

Like Merkel, Obama vowed to bring in 10,000 Syrian refugees even though top security officials questioned the government's ability to adequately vet them.

The American people overwhelmingly disagreed with Obama's approach, yet Hillary Clinton wants to bring many more refugees we cannot fully vet.

And when someone dares to suggest that we stop this nonsense, our elites react in horror.

No wonder two-thirds of Americans think our country is on the wrong track!

While radical Islam wages its jihad against Western Civilization, the political left wages a relentless cultural war against our American values from within.

It constantly denigrates the values that built this nation and mocks the idea of American exceptionalism, offering nothing in return but materialism and licentiousness. Those are not values that will inspire a generation to sacrifice, that will rally a nation to victory against Islamic supremacism.

This has been a long war. Sadly, I fear it has a long way to go -- perhaps a generation or more. And given the leadership that the left has to offer, there is no guarantee of victory.

In the meantime, there are things you can do. Tell your husband, wife, children, parents that you love them. Thank our first responders -- policemen, firemen and anyone you know or see who serves in the U.S. military. Thank them for their service to our country and all that they do to keep us safe and free.

Remind yourself why you are blessed to be in America. And rediscover the God of Abraham, who said, "I have set before you life and death. Now choose life so that you and your children may live."
