11 Sep Why It Matters – The September 11th Show
Honoring 9/11 Requires …
NAMING and understanding the enemy
Yet a NYT tweet from TODAY:
Airplanes took aim????
Good: 44 known major Islamic terrorist attacks in America have been thwarted
Bad: Not all have been thwarted in America or in the rest of the world
• America – Boston Marathon bombers, Orlando night club, San Bernardino, Ft. Hood, Little Rock & Chattanooga military recruiting centers
• Rest of the world – Paris, Nice, Berlin, Brussels, London, Manchester, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Ottawa, Sydney, Barcelona
• The FBI says there are 22 known Islamic terrorist training camps in America
AMERICA MUST COME UP THE LEARNING CURVE RE THE ISLAMIC THREAT, QUICKLY
Bolton Out, Taliban In?
Bolton is known as a hardliner in dealing with known enemies of America, and understands the ideology of our enemies, who include:
• China, Iran, North Korea, jihadist Islam, and the Taliban in Afghanistan
Trump is an extraordinary dealmaker, but deal-making with the Taliban must take into account their unrelenting jihadist ideology
Dangerous for America to make deals with ideological enemies like the Taliban, especially when they are not surrendering.
The choice to replace Bolton – enormously significant
North Carolina Special Election Results
• DEMS outspent the GOP by millions
• Trump did a rally in Fayetteville NC on Monday, 9/9
• GOP won BOTH special elections – one by >12 points
• Cumberland County in NC is 35% Black –
Trump lost it by 20K votes in 2016; Dem won it in 2018 election that was set aside, and GOP’s candidate Dan Bishop won it yesterday: THIS IS BIG
BLEXIT and the favorable economy for minorities are real factors favoring Trump in 2020
Dems can’t win without a monolithic black vote
Could the House flip in 2020?
