Good evening and thank you very much for having me here at the Freedom Leadership Conference tonight. The work you do is important, and I thank you for what you have done to date.
As we take a survey of where our great Republic is today, there is no shortage of critical failures by our government, or of threats which seems to be besieging us.
This nation stands nearly $17 trillion in debt. Americans are being taxed at record levels. Over 15% of Americans are on food stamps.
With regards to our educational system, among the top 50 industrialized nations in the world the United States is not even in the top 15.
Suicides in America are increasing at an alarming rate. Among our military brethren, the situation is even bleaker.
One active duty member of our military takes his own life each day, and a veteran commits suicide nearly every hour of every day.
There are over a million abortions in the U.S. each year – this is not merely a “political” or “religious” issue. This is a real cultural, moral, and national security issue.
Individual liberties are being crushed on a regular basis in our country today. Our current attorney general has stated in testimony before congress that the right to keep and bear arms is not an individual right – a demonstrable gross misunderstanding on his part of our Framers founding principles, which also directly contradicts nearly 240 years of judicial rulings from the federal bench including the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, children as young as 5 years old are being arrested and suspended from American schools for pointing their fingers and going “bang” or chewing pop tarts into the shape of guns.
The unwillingness of politicians from both political parties to courageously stand on the principles of our Declaration of Independence – codified in our Constitution – is staggering.
There appears to be an increasing cultural civil war in America between citizens who want to defend the founding principles and the Progressives who want to destroy them and replace our Constitutional Republic with another form of government – a socialist government.
Our border has been likened to a sieve that allows hundreds of thousands of drug traffickers, terrorists, and illegals to enter our country annually while our government does nothing.
The current administration continues to weaken our national defenses while simultaneously empowering our enemies, leaving America in its most dangerous and vulnerable state in our history.
Our nuclear forces have deteriorated, critical infrastructure nodes are still unprotected and extremely vulnerable to a number of threats, our infantry force in the Army and Marine Corps are being reduced, Naval Forces are not growing to meet current and future threats, and social experiments inside our military are given higher priority than the military’s war fighting capability.
Iran and North Korea are aggressively pursuing nuclear weapons and have clearly stated their intention to use them.
On the night of the State of the Union address, Russia flew a nuclear bomber over the U.S. territory of Guam with no response from our government.
The Chinese military leadership publishes doctrinal writings calling for the destruction of the United States via both military and economic warfare and has hacked into many of our sensitive government computer systems demonstrating our vulnerabilities and their ability to exploit them.
The Commander of U.S. Forces in the Pacific stated the greatest threat to his area of operation is “climate change.”
Today, intelligence operations against the United States are at an all-time high, while our Counterintelligence programs are broken, nearly beyond repair.
Meanwhile, there exists an identifiable enemy which defines itself as the “Global Islamic Movement” led by the International Muslim Brotherhood sweeping the globe.
This unified movement and all of its leaders clearly state they fight in furtherance of Shariah (Islamic Law) and use Shariah as the doctrinal basis for all they do.
Insurgencies in the Philippines, Thailand, and elsewhere; bloody battles in North, Central, and Eastern Africa; Islamic revolutions in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Syria where the U.S. government supports Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood forces; and the growing domination of Islamic forces in Europe to include England, France, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, and elsewhere, are all hallmarks of this global movement. Another key hallmark of this movement is the catastrophic failure of Western governments to identify and confront this threat.
And yet this movement is being noticed by some. Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, the Vatican’s permanent observer to U.S. agencies in Geneva, told the Human Rights Council just two weeks ago, on May 27, “an estimated 100,000 Christians are violently killed because of… their faith each year.” (pg. 3, Our Sunday Visitor of June 9, 2013).
Throughout the African continent, says Father Adam Koscielniak, a Polish missionary, there is a “systematic targeting of Christians” (ibid, page 5). They report that in this mineral rich region of the world, “The Islamization of the African continent is progressing in an organized, intensive way and beginning to take violent form with a bloody face.” (ibid)
The problem is in fact worldwide. It is not theoretical or abstract, but has been most damaging to America’s vital interests and has caused continuing American casualties – dead, wounded and so many lives affected – both on 9/11 and since.
America fought wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and we are bringing our courageous troops home without victory.
This is called defeat; especially in light of the fact these two countries are now Islamic Republics with constitutions that our State Department crafted subordinating Afghanistan and Iraq to Sharia (Islamic Law), thus achieving Al Qaeda’s regional objectives there.
What I am really here to address is how this war, whose purpose and objectives have been loudly and clearly articulated by our enemy, directly affects the security of Americans, our liberty, and our future.
For example, religious freedom, especially in our military, including our Chaplain Corps, is being repressed, and Christian Chaplains cannot invoke the name of Jesus Christ.
Yet written orders have been published to ensure the Koran is handled with “white gloves,” treated with utmost reverence, and given to all jihadi prisoners in U.S. custody.
In the United States, all of the senior Islamic advisors in all branches of our government are, in fact, members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood or affiliated with their Movement.
Most notable is the story of Abdurahman Alamoudi who was a financier for Al Qaeda and the Islamic advisor to President Clinton. Alamoudi was a Good Will Ambassador for the State Department, and the founder of the Department of Defense’s Muslim Chaplain Program. He now sits in federal prison.
Today, the certifying agency for the Muslim Chaplain Programs for the DoD and the Bureau of Prisons is the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the largest Muslim Brotherhood organization in North America, an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest Hamas trial in U.S. history, and a financial support entity for Hamas – a Foreign Terrorist Organization designated by the United States Government.
The President of ISNA, Imam Mohamed Magid – the son of the Grand Mufti of the Sudan – sits on the Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Council, advises the National Security Council, works with the Secretary of State, moderates panels at conferences at CIA Headquarters, and has received awards from the FBI.
Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, one of the richest men in the world and a financier for the global jihad, sits on the board of Time/Warner/AOL and Newscorp, and ensures the truth about the Brotherhood’s activities and Sharia’s obligatory command for Jihad by Muslims against infidels is never spoken on media outlets controlled by these two media giants covering both sides of the political landscape – CNN and Fox News.
Hamas (DBA the Council on American Islamic Relations) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) work at the state and federal level to ensure all training programs to law enforcement, military, and intelligence professionals are shut down, replacing those programs with “sensitivity and Islamic cultural training” conducted by these or other Muslim Brotherhood groups.
Because of this, acts of jihad in America, to include the recent shooting at the University of Santa Clara by John Zawahiri (who shares the same last name as Al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri), are “puzzling” to the FBI and other law enforcement agencies. When the Tsarnaev brothers bombed the Boston Marathon, Major Nidal Hasan killed 13 soldiers at Ft Hood, Faisal Shazhad nearly succeeded in bombing Times Square, or Abdulhakim Mohammed killed Private Andy Long at the recruiting depot in Little Rock, Arkansas, our government encouraged us not to rush to judgment.
We were officially told Major Hasan’s actions were “workplace violence.” The Little Rock jihadi was charged with murder at the state level, because the Department of Justice refused to prosecute it as an act of terrorism.
All of this can only be defined as a psychotic disconnect from reality – this is not sane behavior.
The Islamic Movement in the United States calls its mission here a “Civilization Jihad” to destroy America from within.
They have a detailed strategy, a detailed plan to implement their strategy, and are doing exactly what they intend. They work with local school boards, at State Houses, and at all levels of the federal government.
There is a growing understanding among average citizens of the reality of this threat, yet when leaders at the state and federal level speak truth into this issue, they are silenced and ridiculed. In the case of the Republicans, this is done by the party leadership.
Yes, this happens even with some otherwise good people with whom you might generally agree on other issues our country faces.
But for a variety of reasons, they fail to do their duty.
So instead of calling the enemy for what it is, they say our enemy is only “Al Qaeda” or “terrorism” or “violent extremism” – all of which are non-factual and non-sensical when lined up directly with the enemy’s openly stated doctrinal reasons for fighting the global war in which we find ourselves.
To combat this threat, we must know and understand this threat.
We also cannot fight against something if we are not fighting for something. We must recall our own founding principles and defend them at all costs. In this atmosphere, we must win this war at the local and state level.
Local citizens working in tandem with their elected officials and local law enforcement agencies, especially Sheriffs, can defend their communities against this cancer.
Ladies and gentlemen, no change comes without pain and no war is fought without casualties.
If we are to restore what is possible in this nation, we must be prepared for a long and difficult battle. It will not be easy.
In a world where the vast majority of people have lived under tyranny and oppressive regimes over the course of history, America was formed as a beacon of liberty – a safe haven for all who seek to live in accordance with our founding principles.
We do not, however, welcome those who seek to change and overthrow our principles. The Oath to the Constitution I swore as a Naval Academy midshipman, Marine Officer, and FBI Special Agent has no expiration date. I will defend it with everything I have. I pray you will as well.
Thank you and God bless you.
