America Under Attack

by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author:  America Under Attack - The country breathed a sigh of relief that nothing happened on the 15th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. But this weekend, Islamic supremacists living among us unleashed attacks while our politicians ran for cover.

At this moment, after a weekend of pipe bombs and pressure cooker bombs, New York City is on the highest level of alert since the 9/11 attacks.
  • The attacker in St. Cloud, Minnesota, who went on a stabbing rampage in a mall, is dead. Dahir Adan came here when he was just three years old. He had lived in the United States for nearly 20 years. Adan was a junior at St. Cloud State University. A family friend identified Adan as "the most assimilated kid in the neighborhood." Yet he was capable of attacking nine people at a mall after making sure that none of his victims were Muslims.   Adan is further evidence that there is a jihadist problem among the tens of thousands of Somalis living in Minnesota. Multiple Al Qaeda and ISIS fighters have been recruited from that community.
  • Law enforcement officials in New York and New Jersey have spent the past 36 hours dealing with bombs in various locations. Dozens of people were wounded when one device exploded Saturday night in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood. Five people were detained for questioning after their SUV, loaded with weapons, was stopped.  This morning police issued an alert for Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, a naturalized citizen from Afghanistan. Officials believe there is an active terrorist cell in New York and New Jersey.
  • Both of these individuals -- one Somali and one Afghan -- are Muslims. They are here because of the immigration policies of the United States, policies pursued by Republicans and Democrats alike. These murderers are here because of decisions being made by our leaders, even though the American people want these policies stopped. Donald Trump, more than any other Republican candidate, understood this and built his campaign around it.
  • Several commentators have said that finding lone wolves like the Minnesota slasher is almost impossible to do. "It's like finding a needle in a haystack," they say. I humbly suggest that the first thing you do to make that job easier is to stop making the haystack larger. Stop bringing in more hay -- stop bringing in more people from countries where Islamic radicalism is rampant.
  • While these events were occurring, there was an attempted assassination of a policewoman in Philadelphia. Her attacker left behind a hate-filled letter making it clear how much he despised the police.   What inspired him? I don't need to remind you about the over-the-top, hate-filled rhetoric of the Black Lives Matter movement. But I will remind readers that ISIS has called for attacks against police in order to strike a blow against America. There have been multiple attacks against law enforcement officers that were inspired by ISIS propaganda.
  • Also this weekend, there have been more stabbing attacks in Israel and in London.
Stupidity Contest - I just provided a summary of the evil attacking us. Now I want to do a summary of the stupidity that is governing us.

As these events unfolded over the weekend, it seemed progressive politicians were engaged in a stupidity contest. In strong contention is New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio who said that the Chelsea explosion was "an intentional act," but did not appear to be linked to terrorism. I don't know what that means. Is there such a thing as unintentional terrorism?

More than one left-wing politician, including Senators Chris Coons (D-DE) and Tim Kaine (D-VA), the Democrat vice presidential nominee, argued that the attacks in Minnesota, New York and New Jersey were evidence that we were winning the fight against ISIS. I suppose if 20 American cities are attacked in one weekend, they would suggest we throw a victory parade.

While they made this argument, they were citing mutually contradictory claims. On the one hand, they said we are taking territory from ISIS and as the terrorists get pinched they are sending fighters here. On the other hand, they say these are homegrown lone wolves with no connection to ISIS. Well, which is it?

Perhaps the stupidity award goes to the "Clinton News Network" for attacking Donald Trump for saying, "Just before I got off the plane, a bomb went off in New York and nobody knows exactly what's going on." Within a few minutes, Hillary Clinton also referred to the bombing as she attacked Donald Trump for referring to the "bombing." CNN helpfully edited out her reference to the bombing in its reporting.

The Clinton campaign thinks it can score points by making Trump look rash and irresponsible while making her look thoughtful by not jumping to conclusions. Here's Hillary at 11 p.m. looking "thoughtful." Quite a few observers said she instead appeared exhausted and haggard. Within an hour #ZombieHillary was trending on Twitter.

By the way, Clinton was once in a position of responsibility when a terrible terror attack took place -- in Benghazi. Her "thoughtfulness" led her to lie to us about why it happened.

Here's a foreign entry for the stupidity contest. After a German party advocating stricter border controls performed well in local elections, the mayor of Berlin said that Germany needs to be on alert for rising Nazism.

The mayor is correct, but he's got it backwards. The pro-border control Germans are not the Nazis. The "migrants" pouring in from Muslim nations are the new Nazis. Many of them hate Christians, Jews and despise Western Civilization.

Needless to say, we are disappointed that as we are preparing to send this report, someone who is always a strong competitor for the stupidity award has not yet said a word about these multiple attacks on America . . . Barack Hussein Obama.
