During the entire eight years of President Barack Obama’s administration, he has not only failed to stop terrorism but he hasn’t even slowed it down.
If anything could be said of his handling of terrorism, it would have to be that he did almost everything he could to facilitate it, when he wasn’t ignoring it altogether. He couldn’t even bring himself to acknowledge that it was inspired by Islamic radicalism.
Enter, the Trump administration! With the repudiation of President Obama’s non-acknowledgement policy towards radical Islamic terrorism, by America’s conservative voters, we will now have a president who will take a proactive position in dealing with our enemies. In response, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas has introduced a bill to classify the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group. Something President Obama steadfastly refused to even consider.
From Conservative Tribune:
A series of two bills being introduced by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz would mark two organizations, including the Egyptian-based Muslim Brotherhood, as terrorist groups, according to a statement released by the senator’s office Tuesday.
The bill was notable in that several major individuals and groups in the United States — including top Hillary Clinton adviser Huma Abedin and Muslim advocacy group the Council on American-Islamic Relations — have been tied to the Muslim Brotherhood in one way or another.
According to the statement, the series of bills would also target the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.
Cruz has been a staunch supporter of clarifying by law that the enemy we are fighting is Islamic terrorism.
“I am proud to reintroduce these bills that would codify needed reforms in America’s war against radical Islamic terrorism,” Sen. Cruz said.
“This potent threat to our civilization has intensified under the Obama administration due to the willful blindness of politically-correct policies that hamper our safety and security. A grand détente with the Muslim Brotherhood and a blind eye to the IRGC are not pathways to peace in this struggle; they guarantee the ultimate success of our enemy.
“It is time to call this enemy by its name and speak with clarity and moral authority,” he added.
Unless we identify the enemy we are fighting against, there is no way we can defeat them, which is something Obama made sure we never did.
Having suspected anti-American agents affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, such as Huma Abedin and Valerie Jarrett, advising our top leaders is a huge mistake for America and one that Donald Trump won’t make.
For which, we are extremely grateful!
