Homeland Security chief: “Terror threat worse than most realize”

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said on Friday that the terror threat is worse than most realize, saying some people would “never leave the house” if they knew the truth.

“I was telling [Fox host] Steve [Doocy] on the way in here, if he knew what I knew about terrorism, he’d never leave the house in the morning,” Kelly said on “Fox & Friends.”

He noted there were four major terror attacks in the last week — in England, Egypt, the Philippines and Indonesia — “by generally the same groups.”

And today, the Times of London is reporting that Intelligence officers have identified 23,000 jihadist extremists living in Britain as potential terrorist attackers.

The scale of the challenge facing the police and security services was disclosed by Whitehall sources after criticism that multiple opportunities to stop the Manchester bomber had been missed.

Political correctness will be the end of the civilized world as the “Religion of Peace” tightens its grip.

    We’re repeated given the message “if you see something, say something.” The neighbors of the San Bernadino terrorists were worried they’d be judged as anti-Muslim bigots, so they kept their mouths shut and 14 people died and 22 others were seriously injured. THAT’S the deadly result of political correctness.

    Here in Phoenix, we were very fortunate on Thursday.

    While thousands of adults-in-name-only are dressing up like comic book characters and sci-fi monsters, a very deranged man wearing body armor was allowed into the PHX convention center carrying a shotgun, multiple handguns, ammo and several knives.
    The “security” personnel did not even give him a second glance and allowed him to enter.

    He was not in costume.
    His booking photo shows him to be a disheveled, greasy looking guy with shoulder length matted dark hair.
    With those all too familiar empty eyes of an agent from hell.

    FOX 10 PHX reported that a female at the convention center called 9-1-1 after hearing him say something about killing cops.

    However, the British press is reporting that PHX PD was alerted by the PD in Hawthorne, California after someone there had read a Facebook post written by this evil person, outlining his desire to kill cops.

    Nothing is being reported about where this guy came from. His name suggests that he will be treated with kid gloves. However it happened that Phoenix police officers were able to safely take this man into custody, we should be very grateful to that one single person who alerted the authorities.

    Some of Heaven’s Guardian Angels were working overtime on Thursday in Phoenix.

    Please, if you are so inclined, please pray to God for forgiveness and Mercy. There is no one or nothing that can save us if God withdraws his Grace.

    Homeland Security Secretary Kelly says they emanate from the “same groups.” Would it be too much of a leap to correctly describe them as radicalized Muslims? Much of their indoctrination emanates from the mosques they attend, as we’ve learned with previous attackers — both here and abroad.

    Haven’t heard of any acts of organized terrorism being perpetrated by members of mainstream Christian denominations, Jews, Catholics or Evangelicals.

    What are people supposed to do when the government admits it’s unable to keep terrorists at bay? Obviously attending sporting events, concerts and even trip to the mall are taken at our own risk these days. Sept. 11, 2001 was the alarm, signaling a new era of perpetual turbulence brought to us by Muslims. I was going to write “fanatical Muslim extremists,” but i no longer believe that’s an accurate description. They are Muslims, practicing Islam, which calls for the destruction of the unbelievers.

    I haven’t read of any Muslim clerics or other leaders denouncing the vile acts being perpetrated by members of the “faith” in the name of their faith. That silence is a most troubling aspect of the ongoing horror. None of the rest of us should concern ourselves with fears of insulting them while they kill us.
