The war on terror needs a makeover. Why is it, every time America goes to war with something or someone, the American people seem to be the ones that take the hit? The war on drugs, decades later and probably trillions in taxpayer money gone, and where are we at? Now we are supposedly at war with the so called opioid epidemic, because drugs are bad, right? Why can there not be a little objectivity, when deciding on solutions to society’s ills? Drugs are not good for you, that’s a given, but isn’t alcohol a drug? What about nicotine? Where are the calls to ban alcohol, oh that’s right we have been there and done that? Most of what you buy at the grocery store these days, is bad for your health. Preservatives, excess amounts of sodium, high fructose corn syrup, and the list goes on. Where are the calls to ban any of these items? The real issue of the day however, seems to be terrorism, and that is another thorn in America’s side that we have yet to remove. Our government is run by a bunch of idiots, and worse than that they are idiots that have been consumed by corruption and political correctness. Most Americans are sick of hearing Uncle Sam say, “well we knew this guy was a problem, but we can’t arrest him if he hasn’t done anything wrong”. This is the excuse that our Homeland security officials use, to justify doing nothing until we have a pile of innocent dead bodies lying around that have fallen at the hands of a Muslim whack job, hell bent on jihad. The government that continues to tell us that they need mass surveillance so that they can spy on everyone, apparently has no power to do anything to stop an attack until after the attack happens, according to those calling the shots. So, what is the purpose of the mass collection of metadata, that tells the Federal Government everything that you do from the time you get up, until the time you go to bed? For those of you that are familiar with the criminal justice system and American rule of law, why not use Federal Conspiracy charges to preempt an attack in its planning stages, rather than waiting for the gunfire and explosions to begin? Why is it that Ammon Bundy and his friends were hit with Federal Conspiracy charges for occupying “Public” land, but you can’t charge someone plotting to set off a nail bomb, or fill a soft target and its occupants full of bullet holes, because they are Muslim? Was it because Ammon Bundy and company were a safe bet, when looking to make examples of opposition forces to Federal overreach. Would it have been handled differently if it were a group of black lives matter protesters or a group of jihadists that had taken over the refuge? Would the FBI had been so blatant about gunning down Lavoy Finicum, if Lavoy was a BLM supporter or a Muslim?
Why don’t we use an evidence based approach, just like we do in other aspects of law enforcement. Let’s pull the information that we have on all terror attacks in the US and abroad, that occurred after 9/11, and take note of the constant factors in these attacks, or in other words, what seems to be repetitive. This will do two things, first it will give us evidence based justification for charging members of certain groups or that have specific ties to groups, by utilizing these legal tools that are available in ideal circumstances. Second, it will take away the argument from organizations like CAIR that like to defend these Jihadists, by filing discrimination lawsuits, while invoking Islamophobia. The data collected from this surgical analysis of intelligence, could be used in court to shut down these frivolous lawsuits by proving that data was used in the decision to charge, and that religion was not a factor. In addition, any terrorist attack that happens from this day forward and the intelligence associated with the suspects, and the network in which they operate is documented and cross referenced in real time as to keep the process up to date, find any similarities to past events, and link individuals that that may be involved that we have in our terrorist database.
It is one thing to say that we are going to ditch political correctness, it is another to deal with the firestorm that will come from the direction of academia, the media, and political mercenaries in the form of lobbyists, and elected politicians inside the beltway, that line their pockets with cash from George Soros, and other progressive billionaires, with skin in this globalist game of thrones. Our national security operation needs a serious makeover, and it is best if we try to make it happen sooner rather than later, as the deep state is playing for keeps.
