“Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life,” Trump said in a statement.
Note that what Trump didn't say, and in fact pointed out later, was that this would not be a
Our idiotic policies on a national level did not occur overnight. Nor will fixing them. Until we fix them, and fixing them will require
We are at war and it was not our declaration of war, it was theirs; it does not matter whether we also declare war or not
There are several things we must address in this country when it comes to terrorism.
We must hold to account those government agencies and individuals that through gross negligence or even intentional blindness put political correctness before their job. This means not only firing people it means prosecuting them as accessories before the factwhen that political correctness, jacking off instead of working, infighting between agencies and similar lead to tangible harmsuch as occurred with 9/11, at Ft. Hood and in California. In all three cases and many others government agencies knew damn well there was a problem because all the information necessary to stop the attack was present and in the hands of government employees yet they did nothing about it. I accept that there will be missed opportunities and mistakes. We're human. I refuse to accept malfeasance, misfeasance and intentional blindness.
We must enforce the law when it comes to immigration, employment and related matters.There has been exactly zero enforcement of these matters over the last 20 years. Every employer already must file payroll taxes and thus provide identification (in the form of a Social Security number) on a weekly basis and every one of those forms is required to be truthful.We do exactly nothing to the employers who willingly and knowingly file false documents on a weekly basis or worse, file nothing yet pay employees. We can stop this crap right now without passing a single new law and until we do and make those who are here illegally whether due to an overstayed visa, intentional violation of our immigration laws or as a result of intending to either spread or commit jihadunemployable and jail those who have enabled this behavior we must shut off the spigot.
We must restore the Second Amendment in full and as-written on a national basis.Once we have addressed both ordinary and gross negligence by the government when it comes to our existingbody of law we must then remove the premise of a "soft target" from the American lexicon. Criminals do not obey the law, that's why they're called criminals. But criminals of all sorts, whether the ordinary "carjacking" or jihadist type, do fear being ventilated as soon as someone sees them attempt to commit a violent, deadly felony.It is both logistically and fiscally impossible to have enough cops and FBI agents to cover the entire nation in this regard, never mind the outrageous violations of civil rights and privacy that would be required to accomplish that task even if you could physically do so,which you can't. However, every mass murder incident whether terrorism or not has one common element -- a group of victims who are murdered. The only low-to-zero cost deterrent that we know will work is to dramatically raise the percentage of those potential victims that are armed all the time, and this means putting a stop to the over 50,000 gun-related laws that impede and trample every citizen's right to protect themselves and their loved ones in the gravest extreme.Those federal, state and local officials who refuse to take this action through repeal of allof these blatantly unconstitutional laws or attempt to interfere with doing so must be prosecuted and locked up under existingfederal law, specifically 18 USC 242 that proscribes hard federal felony timefor violations of civil rights under color of law or authority. Enough with the shooting ranges in schools and at Christmas parties damnit. Those officials who createsuch situations are guilty of federal felonies and must be imprisoned now.
Once all three of these areas are addressed -- when we have put a stop to all of the above
They will come to an America that has no "soft targets" and, in all probability, if we miss one or more they will choose somewhere
But if they do not then their intended victims will have both the ability and, one hopes, the desire, to fight back rather than cower in the corner as they're slaughtered like pigs in a meat-packing plant.
Trump is right once again.
