This week’s opening begins by celebrating President Trump’s latest executive order to empower what he calls “one of the greatest Cabinet’s in history.” The President’s plan is to reorganize, consolidate and eliminate any and all unnecessary waste within the Executive Branch of government which fails to deliver results for “hardworking American taxpayers.” Learn more….

Meanwhile, overseas, the Marines have landed as have the Army’s elite 75th Ranger Regiment in Syria.
Hear my analysis concerning the Trump administration’s escalating offensive as the President takes the United States into a new phase in the war against Islamic terrorists, specifically the Islamic State, IS/ISIS/ISIL/Daesh and Al Qaeda. Under the President’s leadership, it appears hundreds, possibly thousands, more military personnel are in the process of being sent to the region to combat Islamic threats to America’s national interests and security. President Trump intends to utterly destroy the Islamic State both in Syria and Iraq with a mix of U.S. Special Operations Forces and conventional forces.
Hear one Syrian Democratic Forces, (SDF), official, in his own words, thank President Trump for doing what the Obama administration never would do – send advanced weapons – heavy weapons to support the SDF in its fight to defeat ISIS.
While the Obama team sent “special advisors” and trainers, i.e., Special Forces to advise local militias, President Obama failed to act decisively, prolonging a human rights crisis in which the genocide against Christians and Yezidis continues.
What can Americans expect from Islamic terrorists going forward? As ISIS transforms itself from a governing body with a standing army, the FBI Director, James Comey has made clear that Islamic fighters, using fake passports, are likely to arrive in the United States and other Western nations to continue to launch attacks. This includes Israel.
Wanting to bring an end to the Judeo-Christian civilization in order to establish a global Islamic caliphate, ISIS, Al Qaeda cells and their supporters are operating here in the U.S. By November of 2015 over 70+ ISIS linked members, so-called “refugees,” had been arrested in the United States for nefarious activities.
And already, ISIS has launched terrorist attacks against Israel from HAMAS, Islamic Resistance Movement controlled territory in the Gaza and in Israel’s heartland – Judea and Samaria.

Likewise, understand more on the issue of President Trump’s newest executive order to protect the nation from foreign terrorist entry in the United States as Muslim migrants, so-called “refugees” have been arrested as ISIS linked militants.
Moreover, as more Muslim immigrants and/or refugees enter the U.S., the FBI continues to reach out to young women in America who risk undergoing female genital mutilation – another reason to enforce the brief moratorium on individuals entering the country who are likely to violate another basic human right. FBI manpower and material resources are overwhelmed.
Today the FBI is investigating more than 500,000 cases of women and girls across the United States who suffer this horrific human rights violation that remains a deeply rooted belief and practice in the Islamic world.
