It’s Time For The ‘Secure Freedom’ Strategy
 
January 16, 2015
 
A hard reality is finally sinking in across America: for a long time now – actually, for more than thirty-five years – the United States has been at war with an enemy sworn to its destruction.
 
It did not seek enmity or hostilities with them. Both are the product of forces that long predated the establishment of this country, to say nothing of its adoption toward the end of the 20th Century of certain policies towards the Middle East or other regions.
 
The enemy is the Global Jihad Movement. And it is inspired, guided, and enabled by the Islamic supremacist doctrine its adherents call shariah.
 
For much of this period, the U.S. government has pursued various approaches to the threats posed by that enemy – including selective military engagements, benign neglect, willful blindness, and outright appeasement. They have all shared one common denominator: They ignore the aforementioned realities and, as a practical matter, have exacerbated them.
 
Yet, no one has advanced a more reality-based, more practical and more effective way to counter, let alone defeat, this ideologically driven enemy.
 
Until now.
 
At the National Press Club at noon on January 16th, an ad hoc group of highly skilled national security professionals will unveil an alternative plan of action that has been proven effective in protecting us against relentlessly aggressive totalitarian ideologues in the one environment that matters: the real world. The resulting approach, called the “Secure Freedom Strategy,” is modeled after the one President Ronald Reagan successfully employed to take down Soviet communism and the Evil Empire it spawned.
 
The “Secure Freedom Strategy” offers a detailed prescription for a clear-eyed understanding of the enemy we confront and actionable steps for vanquishing it. Its key components include:
 
Understanding the Enemy’s Threat Doctrine: Having conclusively demonstrated that Sun Tse’s admonition that you can’t defeat an enemy you don’t know still operates, the United States must now abandon past practice by adopting a realistic understanding of the enemy and its doctrine. That requires, in particular, clarity concerning shariah, the jihad it impels, and the various ways in which such warfare is being waged against us.
 
The Tiger Team makes clear that its use of the term shariah is informed by the practice of Islamic law by the recognized authorities of the faith since at least the 10th Century. (It is noteworthy that, when Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi complained publicly and courageously about the jihadist character of contemporary Islam, he did not berate so-called “radical extremists” of al Qaeda or Islamic State. Rather, he took to task the leading imams in Sunni Islam’s equivalent of the Vatican, al-Azhar University.) Such use of the term shariah, therefore, does not refer to an idiosyncratic, personal, or purely pietistic observance of Islamic law which may or may not conform to the entirety of established Islamic doctrine.
 
The jihadism of shariah is being advanced by both violent techniques and by means other than terrorism. We must, accordingly, be prepared to deal kinetically where necessary with the perpetrators of violent jihad. But it is also imperative that we contend no less effectively with what the Muslim Brotherhood calls “civilization jihad” – its stealthy, subversive effort to “destroy Western civilization from within…by [our own] hands.”
 
Establishing Our Objective: Next, the United States must enunciate a national commitment to – using a phrase President Reagan employed as the object of NSDD 75 – “contain and over time reverse” shariah-driven Islamic supremacism, including establishment of the Caliphate. The rising tide of shariah and various efforts to impose it here and abroad make abundantly clear an unalterable fact: America and, indeed, Western civilization cannot coexist with the Global Jihad Movement.
 
Reestablishing “Peace Through Strength”: Just as President Reagan did in his day, the contemporary hollowing out of the U.S. military must be reversed as a matter of the utmost priority. The perception of American weakness only reinforces our shariah-adherent enemies’ conviction that the time has come for intensifying jihad operations. It is also emboldening other adversaries, including Russia, China and North Korea. As the United States is not confronting simply terrorist organizations, or even their state-sponsors, but prospectively “peer competitors,” the rebuilding of American military power must be balanced across the spectrum of nuclear, missile defense, conventional and special operations forces. We must also continue to develop asymmetric capabilities (e.g., in space and cyber space) while correcting our most egregious vulnerabilities to these enemies’ asymmetric attacks (notably, electromagnetic pulse, cyberwarfare, counter-space, economic/financial warfare, smuggled weapons of mass destruction, etc.)
 
Counter-Ideological Warfare: As in the Cold War, America’s ability to challenge and neutralize its enemies’ animating ideology is at least as important as the task of countering their kinetic threats. Once we are clear about the nature and centrality of the shariah doctrine to the existential danger we currently face, the need for a serious and effective counter-ideological strategy becomes self-evident. Putting such a strategy into practice will require, first and foremost, identifying the Muslim Brotherhood for the explicitly jihadist organization it has always been and is now.
 
Continuing to treat its operatives and organizations (overt and covert) in America and overseas as “partners” because we are told they “eschew violence” is a formula for our incremental destruction. Wherever and as soon as possible, these foes should be neutralized as political forces. At a minimum, they must be denied access to U.S. government agencies, funds, arms and, via television cable packages, American household subscribers.
 
Intelligence Operations: We must take a page from the playbook developed during the Reagan administration by then-Director of Central Intelligence William Casey and use covert means wherever possible to counter, divide and undermine our enemies. To the traditional intelligence techniques should be added aggressive use of psychological operations, cyberwarfare and, where necessary, clandestine and special operations.
 
Economic Warfighting: As with the Reagan NSDD 75 plan, there must be a central economic/financial warfighting component to a new American strategy for defeating our time’s existential enemies. This component would include: constricting the principal source of revenues for the jihad – vast petrodollar transfers from Western nations to OPEC states; reversing the present practice of accommodating and even encouraging shariah finance, a technique employed by civilization jihadists to penetrate and subvert our capitalist system: and exposing shariah-inspired sovereign wealth funds as instruments of financial jihad.
 
Cyber Warfighting: Cyberspace is the new battlefield of asymmetric warfare where attacks across domains and technologies by the Global Jihad enemy, as well as peer adversaries, must be countered with 21st Century capabilities drawn from the best and brightest in the civilian, intelligence and military worlds.
 
Were these and similar policy priorities articulated by the Tiger Team to be adopted and executed appropriately, it should be possible to effect the necessary second step: the adoption by the nation of a true warfooting, a state of national commitment that will bring to bear the popular vigilance and support that will make it possible for the Secure Freedom Strategy to be fully executed.
 
If we are to have a prayer of bequeathing, as President Reagan put it, to our children and children’s children an America that is free – and not one that has submitted to the jihadists and shariah – we must get about the business of securing freedom in a strategic and time-tested way.
 
And we must begin to do it now.

What’s really behind the Benghazi cover-up?


Demand Benghazi Truth

Intro: What’s really behind the Benghazi cover-up?

John R. Houk

© May 31, 2013

 

I received an email from Liberty Counsel Action authored by Mat Staver asking that his readers demand greater scrutiny pertaining to the details of Benghazigate and who knew what about the before, during and after of the four deaths that occurred at the diplomatic mission in Benghazi Libya.

 

Staver points to the questions being asked by Frank Gaffney, Jr. of the Center for Security Policy (CSP). The questions are pointed and are simple to answer for a government that has nothing to hide.

 

There is more to this email than Staver providing the relevant questions that deserve an answer. Staver provides a link in which you can place your name to a Liberty Counsel Action fax which will cost you some bucks to send. Personally I don’t have the cash to do that but I would if I did so think about it.

 

If you are like me there is a petition you can participate in that is free at TheTeaParty.net. Without placing my name on there more than once like a Leftist would do I cannot remember if there is first a money option then a free option relating to the petition calling Congress to take action on Benghazigate. I do remember there is a free option though. To sign that petition can go this TheTeaParty.net petition link or you can click the banner I have at SlantRight 2.0.

What’s really behind the Benghazi cover-up?

 

By Mathew Staver

Sent: May 30, 2013 at 8:53 AM

Sent from Liberty Counsel Action

 

From the Desk of:

Mat Staver

 

While Congress is in a “constituency work period” away from Washington, there is an uprising of organizations calling for our congressional leaders to start asking the right questions on Benghazi. 

 

Congress must create a Select Committee to FULLY investigate the Benghazi attacks – moving beyond the already obtained evidence that the Obama administration lied to the American people and sought to cover up the truth about the attack that killed four Americans and injured many more.

 

The truth about the events leading up to, during, and following the attacks must also be exposed. Please see my very important message below – Mat.

 

John,

 

What were President Obama and his administration hiding while attempting to deceive the American people about the attacks on Benghazi?

 

It is unrealistic to believe that the edited talking points were contrived solely to protect the political careers of the President, Hillary Clinton, General Petraeus, or State Department bureaucrats. 

 

Now, over 8 months later, there are still far more questions than answers. This is an epic foreign policy and national security failure – masked with an obvious cover-up and unbridled deception.

 

Yet even more disturbing is the fact that those lies may have been created to conceal something much larger and far more sinister. 

 

++One highly respected policy expert’s view on Benghazi.

 

Frank J. Gaffney Jr., former Assistant Secretary of Defense under President Reagan and now President of the Center for Security Policy, is one of the foremost experts on foreign policy in the Middle East.

 

Frank Gaffney and his organization have been good friends of Liberty Counsel Action and have collaborated with us on several important issues over the last several years.  But we have never before been faced with anything in the troubling presidency of Barack Obama as massively significant as the Benghazi scandal.

 

Gaffney poses very disturbing questions about Benghazi-gate.  These questions could seem tainted by “conspiracy theory” thinking, but coming from a seasoned, credentialed defense expert of Frank Gaffney’s caliber, they add great credence to the probability that this is one of the most insidious cover-ups in American history.

 

Here are just a few of his questions and assessments…

 

o   “What role did the Obama administration’s assiduous cultivation of relations with Islamists play in the creation of the State Department’s so-called special mission facility in Benghazi?

 

o   What was the true purpose of that facility, and who was assigned to staff it, with what roles?

 

o   Why did it take so long for Benghazi survivors to be made available to congressional investigators of the Benghazi-gate affair?

 

o   What caused U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens to consider it necessary to be at that facility, which he had formally complained was dangerously insecure, especially on September 11, a day that al Qaeda has long sought to make open-season on Americans?

 

o   Specifically, what was the urgency of Stevens’ last official act, an evening meeting with the Turkish consul general?

 

o   Were the special mission facility and the nearby CIA annex involved in a covert operation to collect small arms, surface-to-air missiles, or other weapons?

 

o   Were any of those weapons being secretly made available — directly or indirectly — to the Syrian opposition, a group known to include al Qaeda elements?

 

o   If weapons secured in Libya for this purpose were transferred to the so-called Syrian rebels, was there a presidential finding authorizing such activities? In that case, had any congressional leaders been duly notified?

 

o   The public record suggests that Mr. Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton were inexplicably disengaged from the time they learned of the attack until their joint appearance the next morning in the Rose Garden. Where were they during that period and what were they doing?

 

The Center for Security Policy, like liberty Counsel Action, is calling for a Select Committee to be established by Congress – as are 153 House Republicans, Members of the Senate, the families of the Americans murdered, the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, Special OPS OPSEC, an association of retired Special Operations officials, along with a number of other patriotic organizations.  

 

We are demanding action from congressional leadership! A Select Committee must be empowered to ask all of the right questions – the events leading up to the attack – the actions taken during – and the post-event deception of the American people.

 

Please join with me today in putting additional pressure on Congress to FULLY investigate the Libya massacre!

 

We are faxing our Senators, Representatives, and other key officials today demanding that Members of Congress empower a Select Committee – as proposed by Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA) in H. Res 36 – and now endorsed by over 150 Members of the House.

 

I urge you to take a minute right now to further participate in this important campaign. Click here to send your immediate faxes to Congress:

 

www.lcaction.cc/1667/offer.asp

 

++This investigation must be consolidated, empowered, and formalized!

 

There are at least four House committees investigating the attacks – all operating within the scope of their limited authority. We are demanding a Select Committee with the needed authority!

 

I believe Benghazi-gate will blow wide open in spite of the Obama/Clinton wish that it would just go away – if Congress investigates it with the full empowerment of a Select Committee. 

 

Liberty Counsel Action’s Fax Barrage strategy has been extremely effective in “holding our elected leaders’ feet to the fire” and forcing Congress to see that the American people will not stand for an arrogant dismissal of public opinion!

 

Please, click here now to fax Congress and call for a complete bipartisan investigation into the Libya massacre and the cover-up crafted by the Obama administration:

 

www.lcaction.cc/1667/offer.asp

 

Even if you have already sent a round of faxes, we must relentlessly barrage our senators, representatives, and other key members of Congress demanding that they do the right thing – and ask the right questions.

 

Enemies of America’s best interests in these events must be exposed.  U.S. government officials, irrespective of the seniority of their positions, must be held accountable!

 

Please click here now to send your faxes to Congress:  

 

www.lcaction.cc/1667/offer.asp

 

Again, thank you for taking action with us on this critical issue!   

 

God bless you,

Mathew Staver, Chairman

Liberty Counsel Action

 

P.S. I believe we are just beginning to see the extent to which our President and senior government officials have united in a massive cover-up of the events in Benghazi.  PLEASE fax Congress right away, even if you have already done so. Together, let’s hold anyone responsible fully accountable!

‘Civilization jihad’ and Obama’s connections


MB - USA Seals[4]

Yes I am on the WND email list that notifies of articles and opinions. I was hooked by a WND email that point to an article that was supposed to talk about six Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers that are member of the Obama Administration and operate as infiltrating members of government promoting Sharia Law in America. The article is awesome because it is basically an advertisement for a Muslim Brotherhood exposé from the Center for Security Policy headed by Frank Gaffney, Jr.; however the article fails to actually name the six infiltrators that hooked me to read the article.

 

That was a bit disappointing so I Googled something similar to the WND hook. I found an article that names MB infiltrators in the U.S. government especially in the case of the Obama Administration. I don’t know if any of the listed in the article I found is the same as the six infiltrators intended in the WND hook. I am going to cross post that article but if you can’t wait you can read it HERE. (Actually as I was researching I realized WND has been exposing a Fifth Column in the USA for some time. God bless WND. Here is an article from the SlantRight.com Archive.) In the mean time below is the WND article about viewing for FREE a ten part course on the Muslim Brotherhood in America.
