One of the primary purposes of the federal government is the defense and safety of its citizens.
In the words of the Preamble to the Constitution, it’s to “establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”
As important as tax, regulatory, and other reforms are to industry professionals, safety and security can’t be overlooked.
It’s in that context that we look at the thoughts previously shared by Dr. Sebastian Gorka with MHProNews, immediately after related news from the White House.
Make America Safer
In a recent release from the White House press room to MHProNews, President Donald J. Trump announced his nomination of Kirstjen Nielsen as Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS).
“I share the President’s profound commitment to the security of our country and the safety of the American people,” Nielsen said. “Truly, there is nothing more valuable than to feel safe and secure in your homeland.”
The White House press room also shared the president’s recent video. That video reminds Americans of our independence, which ‘founding father’ George Washington’s defeat of the British is celebrated today. Defending the God-given rights enshrined by the U.S. Constitution, is vital for a free society.
Flashback, Fastforward with Former Presidential Advisor, Dr. Gorka
“The border is our front door,” Dr. Gorka said in a recent statement reported by NPR. “Surely we should have a control as to who enters our house. This is the house of America. And the idea that we don’t control it [i.e.: the border] is crazy.”
In the light of numerous terror attacks in the U.S. and Europe in recent years, MHProNews asked the anti-terrorism and security expert about what level of concerns factory builders, community operators or others in the industry should have regarding potential terrorist attacks.
“Any high concentration of unarmed civilians is an attractive target for terrorists,” Gorka replied to MHProNews. “Terrorism is about generating fear in a population to coerce change.”
MHProNews also asked Dr. Gorka, “During the Crusader era, the then Christian West responded both militarily and with an effort to convert Muslims. Why do we hear so little discussion of that religious component today and do you think that might be useful now as then?”
“The religious aspects of the current threat environment have been assiduously white-washed,” Dr. Gorka said in his emailed comments to MHProNews. He cited prior administrations, saying, “and this began under the Bush administration so it is a bipartisan problem.”
During the Obama Administration, Gorka told MHProNews that, “U.S. counterterrorism [was] based upon a fallacious theory that poverty and lack of education lead to extremist violence.”
“Of course, if that were true [then] half of India, or China would be terrorists. But they’re not,” the author of Defeating Jihad said.
Also during the Obama administration, Gorka told MHProNews that, “For political reasons, the policymakers refuse to recognize the religious ideology that drives global jihadist groups like Al Qaeda or the Islamic State.
As long as that is the case, we will not defeat the current threat to the Republic,” Dr. Gorka concluded.
While he left the Trump administration, like Breitbart’s Chairman Steve Bannon has, Gorka is deeply involved in promoting the “Make America Great Again” agenda.
As the MAGACoalition Chief Strategist, Gorka’s been on a variety of conservative media, as well as some left-of-center media.
In the video above from the MAGACoalition website, Gorka says among other things that “when our side,” the GOP “fails,” that’s “the bigger obstacle.” to achieving the president’s agenda. ## (News, analysis, commentary.)
