Vice President Pence's remarks in Indonesia painted what is at best a misleading picture of the facts on the ground. Let’s hope that behind the scenes the Vice President and President Trump’s national security team know what’s really going on in the world’s most populous Muslim country.
Faith Leaders for America, called upon the nation to pray for President-Elect Trump as he prepares to be inaugurated as president of the United States. Why? Because it’s the biblical thing to do. In Hebrew scripture, the prophet Samuel thought it would be a sin not to pray for King Saul. In Christian scripture, the apostle Paul wrote that we should all pray for all who are in authority.
Who you walk with tells us who you are, and by walking with anti-Shariah truth-teller Kevin Kookogey, Senator Ted Cruz has shown the path for our country and its people to follow in preserving liberty under the Constitution from the threat of Shariah and radical Islam. Unfortunately, the other Republican presidential candidates have been MIA on an issue that Cruz has now addressed with not only words, but with action.
Rep. Steve King on Tuesday stressed the importance of defending free speech in the U.S. in the face of radical Islam, hours after ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack outside a Prophet Mohammed cartoon contest in Texas. King called the attack an attempt to bring “Sharia law into America by intimidation” and said without a robust backing of freedom of speech, Islamists will “keep redefining what’s offensive until then all of their rules are applied on all of us.”
National security, especially destroying the threat posed by the misogynistic radical Muslims of the Islamic State moves female voters. Republicans should nationalize the election by making it clear they stand for the destruction of the Islamic State in part because of the threat it represents to women.
Those who adhere to and seek to impose, whether through violence or by stealth, brutally repressive, totalitarian, misogynistic, homophobic, intolerant and anti-constitutional shariah on others – have made no secret of their determination to conquer and destroy us and the rest of the civilized world.
