Countering “violent extremism” bill scrubs Islamic component

Intentional omissions of words that matter leave us all more vulnerable

As ISIS operatives are acknowledged to be exploring new ways of expanding terrorist attacks in the U.S. and internationally, a toothless bill that has had three previous incarnations has reared its head again, just in time to coincide with election season and provide talking points to the homies.

Given the calculated-to-appeal title of “Countering Terrorist Radicalization Act,”  H.R. 5471  authorizes the formation of a Counterterrorism Advisory Board tasked with issuing terrorism alerts.

Admit it. Don’t you feel safer already?

This posturing is in response to the Orlando terrorist attack that left dozens dead and wounded. Unfortunately, the bill, which passed the House on Thursday, is neither a serious response nor will it help make our country safer. Yet it is now headed to the Senate. The “violent extremists” are never identified. Not a word relates to curbing the continued flow of unable to be vetted “refugees” from terror sponsoring nations.

Daniel Horowitz writing for Conservative Review explains the contorted language Republicans use in  refusing to acknowledge the fundamental component of Islamic terror. Be sure to check out the chart titled, “Disappearing Language of Terror.”

Robin Simcox’ excellent commentary for the Heritage Foundation is titled, “The Unmentionable Origins of Terrorism.” 

Rest assured the bogus HR 5471 allows for “no additional funds” to be authorized to carry out this Act or the amendments made by this Act.” Why would it need funding? It does nothing and says less.

    Arizona Lion Guard Biker Club Organizes To Protect Trump Supporters From Violent Leftists Saturday…

    A group of bikers said it plans to protect supporters from possible violence at a Donald Trump rally scheduled to be held in Phoenix on Saturday.

    “We’re going to stand between them and any protesters that come onto the property and hopefully protect them from any bodily harm, should it get to that point,” Cindy Perrin with Lions Guard Arizona said.

    Perrin said the biker group, made up mostly of retired police officers, such as herself, and veterans, will be wearing American flag bandanas so they are easy to identify.

    Paul Ryan Lies to O’Reilly: Says He Passed Bill to Pause Somali Refugee Program

    The House bill would “not have affected the Somali refugee program at all,” said NumbersUSA Director of Government Relations Rosemary Jenks.

    Jenks further noted that, “The bill the House passed would in no way pause the refugee program. They had the option of taking up the Babin bill, which would have paused the refugee program, but they refused to do that… All [the House bill] required was that the government sign off that individuals had been vetted. It didn’t even change the fact that we don’t have any information by which to vet them.”

    The Ryan-championed House bill “when you get down to it, it doesn’t do anything,” the House Bill to Pause the Syrian Refugee Program Doesn’t Really Pause the Syrian Refugee Program.”

    We are treated like mushrooms by the GOP establishment. They keep us in the dark and cover us with manure. Stop standing and applauding them. Ask them tough questions at public forums.If their responses are not satisfactory, tell them you will stop voting for them. They are trained on how to respond to unhappy constituents. Hold their feet to the fire and take no BS answers.

    Nehlen responds to Ryan’s lawsuit threat

    Really, Paul Ryan? You’re seriously threatening to sue Donald Trump’s effort to put in play new and much needed immigration controls?

    I’ve had it with Paul Ryan. If you have as well please support our campaign to #DumpRyan

    Would we have willingly allowed Nazi concentration camp mass murderers to flood into America during WWII? Of course not. Though those that deceitfully slipped in assuming new identities after the war were elderly, they were hunted down and prosecuted. This one, unfortunately, lived too long to qualify:

      That was a tougher generation, raised during the Depression and taking hardships in their stride. Today’s milquetoasts have known nothing but coddling and getting anything they want by whining long enough. They watch sports and video games and know all of the drug addicted “celebrities” but have not even a nodding acquaintance with the news other than what they get on the leftwing late night shows that masquerade as comedy, but actually finish the liberal brainwashing they got in school form their Obama supporting unionist teachers .

    In Belgium today, the authorities have taken 40 persons into custody and arrested 10 regarding a situation that was described as “needing immediate intervention.” Go ahead and say it, Belgium. Use your words. Radicals. Muslims. Terrorists.

    Meanwhile, law enforcement in the US knows that the Orlando terrorist’s wife accompanied him to gun stores and did participate in the buying of ammo. She went with him to Disney and Pulse on scouting missions, and exchanged text messages with him during the massacre.
    And Now—–They don’t know where she is!

    The entire family should be under surveillance.

    Remember that, in San Bernadino, just a few short months ago, the perps mother lived with them in a tiny townhouse where they were actively storing weapsons, ammo, and materials to build bomz.
    The stuff was laying all over that townhouse. Muzzy momma should have been arrested, but she is apparently moving freely about the country today.

    This as the WH announces that they are “speeding up” the process of admitting thousands more Syrians into the US.

    Just since last weekend, over 400 have been admitted.

    We are headed toward a cliff in a car without brakes or steering.

    441 Syrian Refugees Admitted to the U.S. Since the Orlando Attack, Dozens to Florida – Breitbart
    The 441 new arrivals have been resettled across 26 states, with Illinois (60), Florida (49), and Arizona (38) taking in the most Syrian refugees over that four-day timeframe.

    Dr. Zuhdi Jasser’s ethnicity is Syrian Arab. I wonder if he is put in touch with any of these ‘refugees.’ We (AZ) are taking in 38 since the Orlando attack.

    Referring to the above Robin Simcox commentary, political correctness is a killer. It’s the tool being used by our government to protect Muslims even if they’re dastardly criminals such as the Orlando Islamist terrorist’s wife who is now among the “missing.” The wife of one of the Boston bombers to this day is as free as a bird. This will all end badly.

    Why the ‘lone-wolf’ terrorist is a myth | New York Post

    “Obama’s “rogue” homegrown Muslim terrorist is a myth. In virtually every case, the terrorist suspect’s radicalization spokes off into family, local mosques and the larger Muslim community.”

    “President Obama says don’t worry, the Orlando terrorist was just another “lone actor” operating in isolation, unconnected to any larger group of supporters. In fact, these so-called “lone wolves” are running in packs, and suggesting otherwise gives the public a false sense of security.”

    AZ Anti-Trump Protester: ‘Make America Mexico Again’

    An anti-Trump protester in Arizona held up a “Make America Mexico Again” sign as anti-Trump agitators demonstrated ahead of Trump’s Saturday visit to the Grand Canyon State.

    The agitators also inflated a Trump KKK balloon and put up a “Make America Hate Again” sign at the demonstration. The inflatables were reportedly donated to the pro-amnesty group that organized the protest.
