Warning from Brussels: Ted Cruz Has the Best Team to Defeat Jihad

Senator Ted Cruz has consistently demonstrated his deep commitment to Ronald Reagan’s national security philosophy, underpinned by the foundational principle of “peace through strength.” 

The national security experts that Senator Cruz recently announced as part of his team and who might be reasonably expected to influence a Cruz administration are highly respected professionals, many of whom have Ted Cruzappeared on the pages of CHQ, and who share our vision of how we will restore America’s leadership in the world, protect our homeland and defend it as the eternal bastion of constitutional liberty. 

We were particularly impressed that former Reagan official Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy, former assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew C. McCarthy who prosecuted the first World Trade Center bombing, former CIA officers Fred Fleitz and Clare Lopez, American Foreign Policy Council Vice President Ilan Berman, Global Security President Katharine C. Gorka, and former Reagan official Michael Ledeen joined Victoria Coates on Senator Cruz’s national security team. 

Frank Gaffney, Andrew C. McCarthy, Fred Fleitz and Clare Lopez often inform our views on national security matters, in particular the conduct of the war Islam has declared on the West. 

This of course drives the Left and their fellow travelers in the establishment media and among establishment Republicans nuts. 

To the Left and the Washington establishment anyone who points out the obvious threat of Islamist penetration of America’s government and culture is an “Islamophobe.” 

Likewise, anyone who points out that Islam as it is practiced by millions of Muslims around the globe is not so much a religion as it is a totalitarian political ideology is a “hater,” not an honest and sober realist about what Islamist ideology is all about. 

And of course anyone who questions why America needs millions of Muslim immigrants in the face of the threat of Islamist terror and the complete inability of our government to provide security screenings and assimilate those raised in this alien ideology must be some sort of racist. 

No doubt that is why the usual suspects on the Left and among the unindicted terrorist co-conspirators immediately attacked Senator Cruz and especially Frank Gaffney for their focus on winning the war Islam has declared on us. 

As Breitbart’s Michelle Moons documented in a recent article, Gaffney was one of several Cruz security team advisors labeled “infamous Islamophobes” last week by the Council on American Islamic Relations, an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation’s Hamas-funding operation. 

The CAIR group is so closely entwined with Islamists and with jihadis that court documents and news reports show that at least five of its people — either board members, employees or former employees — have been jailed or repatriated to the United States for various financial and terror-related offenses. 

The record highlighted by critics also shows that CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a Texas-based criminal effort to deliver $12 million for the Jew-hating HAMAS jihad group, that it was founded with $490,000 from HAMAS, and that the FBI bans top-level meetings with CAIR officials. In 2009, a federal judge concluded that “the government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR … with Hamas.” 

Here’s our view: we need a Commander-In-Chief who defends America and defending America means defeating radical Islamic terrorism and defeating ISIS. And it verges on treason that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, the establishment media and many establishment Republicans won’t acknowledge the threat Islam poses to constitutional liberty or even say the words radical Islamic terrorism. 

Ted Cruz’s choice of his national security team shows he gets it and his choice of Frank Gaffney as a member of his national security team proves once again that Cruz is the only candidate for President conservatives can trust to actually defeat ISIS and deliver a workable strategy to defend our homeland and culture from the Islamist threat.

The only rational explanation for people like president obama, hillary clinton and others to use the word islamophobia is because they have no other defense of their own position.
