Another Attack, Background Checks, A Successful Covenant

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: Another Attack
Two Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offices in San Antonio, Texas, were attacked around 3:00 AM Tuesday morning. Multiple gunshots were fired into a building that houses administrative and executive offices for ICE. Another nearby building, which houses a firm that contracts with ICE, was also shot at around the same time.

FBI Special Agent Christopher Combs told reporters that the shots were fired by "an unknown number of individuals in an unknown number of vehicles." Combs added that the attack was "very targeted" and that federal employees were nearly killed.

"We will vigorously go after those who are responsible," Combs said. "To fire indiscriminately into any building, let alone a federal facility, is not an act of protest. It's an act of violence."

ICE Field Director Daniel Bible said:"Political rhetoric and misinformation that various politicians, media outlets and activist groups recklessly disseminate to the American people regarding the ICE mission only serve to further encourage these violent acts.

"ICE officers put their lives on the line each and every day to keep our communities safe. This disturbing public discourse shrouds our critical law enforcement function and unnecessarily puts our officers' safety at risk."
These incidents mark at least four violent attacks against ICE facilities so far this year.

In addition to the protests in Aurora, Colorado, where the U.S. and Blue Lives Matter flags were taken down and defaced, there was the attempted firebombing of an ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington, by a deranged Antifa member.

He also had a manifesto. But you have not heard much about that because it doesn't fit the narrative the media wants to talk about.

As Director Bible suggested, attacks on ICE facilities appear to be a relatively recent phenomena. They did not happen during the Obama years, when his administration was deporting more people than Donald Trump. Nor did they happen during the Obama years, when his administration built the cages for children that so many now decry.

One has to assume that the attacks were not happening during the Obama years because no one then was calling the president a "racist." No one then was calling ICE agents "fascists." No one then was calling detention facilities "concentration camps." But that's all we are hearing today.

About Those Background Checks. . .
Everybody wants to ensure that people with severe mental illness don't have access to firearms, particularly if they are subject to frequent bouts of rage, incoherent screaming and threats of violence against others.

That being the case, perhaps all the people going berserk at the sight of MAGA hats should be prohibited from owning firearms. And maybe cable news hosts named "Fredo" too!

A Successful Covenant
As you know, Chick-fil-A has come under tremendous attack in recent years for its Christian values. We all know businesses that were started by Christian families but overtime drifted from those values and now embrace the radical left. Chick-fil-A has resisted that pressure and maintained their commitment to faith and family.

One of the reasons the company has remained true to its core principles, and I believe the central reason for its tremendous success, is because its leaders made a covenant with one another to do precisely that.

Dan, Trudy and Donald Cathy, the children of Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy, made a covenant with their father in January 2000. Among other things, they vowed to remain faithful Christians, faithful to their families, they promised to keep the company private, to continue its philanthropic works and to always remain closed on Sundays.

I have no doubt there are many small businesses that take a similar approach. But I also believe that if most big businesses were run the same way, we would not have witnessed so many major corporate and Wall Street scandals, which are so often driven by greed.

So the next time you get irritated, just as I do, when you want a Chick-fil-A sandwich on Sunday, remember to pause and thank God for the companies that still honor Him.
