"Educating ‘Engineers of Jihad’ at US Universities" My recent commentary for FrontPage Magazine- Worth re-reading in light of ISIS video

Hi Gang:
Kindly forward this e-mail to as many folks as you can and then ask that those to whom you send this, to forward it along to everyone they can- I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!”
On January 6, 2016 Fox News reported, Leaked Training Videos Give Rare Look Inside Secret ISIS Weapons Lab.”
This is the brief explanation that accompanied the video package posted on the Fox News website:

  ISIS has a secret weapons facility in its self-declared capital of Raqqa, Syria, according to a new Sky News report.

ISIS training videos that were never meant to be seen by the public reveal that the terror group is employing scientists and weapons experts to train jihadists to carry out sophisticated, “spectacular” attacks abroad.

They are also working on remote-controlled car bombs and weapons systems capable of targeting passenger jets and military aircraft.

I have been greatly concerned about the dangers inherent in the failures of our immigration system to vet foreign students entering the United States to attend our universities to acquire the skills and education in the STEM disciplines that can then be exploited by terrorist organizations to greatly increase the lethality of their attacks both inside the United States as well as overseas.
In point of fact, while I have written extensively about this very issue and have testified before a number of Congressional hearings about this danger, here a two of my recent articles for FrontPage Magazine that focused on this danger  (I previously sent out an e-mail about these articles but they are worth re-reading in light of the worrisome information contained in that ISIS video):

Educating ‘Engineers of Jihad’ at US Universities

How the legal immigration system allowed four al-Qaeda-linked terrorists to attend U.S. colleges and roam free among us.


Why educating foreign STEM students is bad for American workers and national security.

The Summer Edition of The Social Contract includes my extensive article, The 9/11 Commission Report and Immigration: An Assessment, Fourteen Years after the Attacks.”

On April 20, 2015 FrontPage Magazine published my article, How DHS Ineptitude Facilitates Terrorist Operations » A chilling case-in-point from Ohio.

In his historic speech before the 3rd Army on May 31, 1944, General George S. Patton said, on the strategy of holding a position:

We’re not holding anything, we’ll let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly, and we’re not interested in holding onto anything except the enemy.”

Pushing back against Comprehensive Immigration Reform is the same as holding position. The time has come for us to advance by demanding that our borders be made truly secure and our immigration laws be effectively administered and enforced.

Comprehensive Immigration Reform violates all of the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission but no one is willing to even consider how the lack of real border security and the lack of real integrity to the various components of the immigration system imperil national security and public safety.

The findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission must be the starting point for any discussion about immigration legislation.  That commission determined that a lack of border security, including the visa process. and fraud in the immigration benefits program, enabled terrorists to enter and embed themselves in the United States, as they went about their deadly preparations.

Immigration is not a single issue but a singular issue that impacts nearly every challenge and threat confronting the United States today!  Simply stated, the immigration laws were enacted to save lives and protect the jobs of American workers.  In point of fact, our borders and our immigration laws are America’s first line of defense and last line of defense against international terrorists and transnational criminals.
It is not “Anti-Immigrant” to be “Pro-American!”

Our armed forces are charged with securing America’s borders externally while the DHS is supposed to secure those same borders from within.  The failures of the DHS to live up to its half of the equation are undermining the efforts, valor and incredible sacrifices of Americas men and women who serve in our military!
If our government’s failures to protect American jobs by securing our nation’s borders and effectively enforcing our immigration laws concerns you or especially if it angers you, I ask you to call your Senators and Congressional “Representative. This is not only your right- it is your obligation! 

All I ask is that you make it clear to our politicians that we are not as dumb as they hope we are!

We live in a perilous world and in a perilous era. The survival of our nation and the lives of our citizens hang in the balance.

American Lives Matter!

This is neither a Conservative issue, nor is it a Liberal issue- simply stated, this is most certainly an AMERICAN issue!

You are either part of the solution or you are a part of the problem!

Democracy is not a spectator sport!

Lead, follow or get out of the way!
