The Assistant Attorney General just announced charges against two ISIS terrorists know as The Beatles. Once again, the Trump Administration is taking terrorism off the streets.
I call that another promise kept. But I wonder what leftists will say. My prediction? They’ll credit Obama with the win.
Of course, liberals conveniently forget about that airplane full of cash. That little $400M endeavor sent our money straight to Iran.
As the American Center for Law and Justice reminds us:
The ramifications of this mind-numbingly disastrous move are earth shattering.
More than $400 million was handed over to the Islamic Republic of Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism. This cash could be distributed by Iran to Hezbollah or any other terrorist organizations funded by Iran around the world, without any tracking or tracing.
In one false move, Obama undid decades of US policy that mandated “no negotiations with terrorists.” And yet, I’d bet my eye teeth that someone will credit Obama with Trump’s winning strategy.
Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
Yet, Trump made defeating ISIS a priority throughout his first term. That’s something Obama never did. Now, the number of terrorists is dwindling, along with their power to hurt us. Because we have a president willing to hunt down these radicals and do a little ass kicking.
Obviously, we still have a few loose ends to tie up. And that’s exactly what our administration is doing.
According to USA Today:
Two British ISIS militants known as the Beatles are facing terrorism charges for the deaths of several hostages, including four Americans, the Justice Department announced Wednesday.
Officials said Alexanda Amon Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh, whom captives had referred to as the Beatles because of their British accents, and two other co-conspirators were involved in the kidnapping, torturing and killing of American, European and Japanese hostages from 2012 to 2016. The two are now in FBI custody in the United States. They’re set to appear Wednesday in federal court in Alexandria, Va., just outside of Washington, D.C.
The two men grew up in the United Kingdom, where they became radicalized, authorities said. They left London in 2012 and traveled to Syria to join ISIS.
“Today’s announcement is a reminder of the threat that we continue to face from radical Islamic terrorists,” Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers said. “These terrorists despise the freedoms and way of life we cherish as Americans and are hell-bent to impose their ideologies on a world that continues to reject them.”
The other co-conspirators were Mohammed Emwazi, also known as Jihadi John, who was killed during an air strike in 2015, and an unnamed British citizen who is incarcerated in Turkey.
Among the American victims were print and video journalist James Foley, who was covering the war in Syria when he was captured; Steven Sotloff, a journalist who covered the Middle East and was reporting on the refugee crisis in Syria; Peter Kassig, a humanitarian aid worker; and Kayla Mueller, also a humanitarian worker.
Peace in the Middle East
The idea of peace in the Middle East is so cliché. Politicians make those promises year after year. But I don’t recall any other president with the balls to stomp out terrorism like Donald Trump does.
In fact, our president doesn’t just talk the talk. Trump walks the walk. And he dedicates his life to problem-solving. What does he ask for in return? Nothing. Nada. Thus, Trump’s nomination for a coveted Nobel Peace Prize is no surprise.
According to The Hill:
According to Sky News Australia, four Australian law professors recently nominated the president for the high honor, with one of them, David Flint, citing his recent role in helping broker relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
“He went ahead and negotiated against all advice, but he did it with common sense. He negotiated directly with the Arab states concerned and Israel and brought them together,” Flint said.
The law professor also pointed to an idea he referred to as the “Trump Doctrine” in his comments explaining the recent nomination to the news agency on Sunday.
“What he has done with the Trump Doctrine is that he has decided he would no longer have America in endless wars, wars which achieve nothing but the killing of thousands of young Americans,” Flint said.
“So, he’s reducing America’s tendency to get involved in any and every war,” he continued adding: “The states are lining up, Arab and Middle-Eastern, to join that network of peace which will dominate the Middle-East.”
“He is really producing peace in the world in a way in a which none of his predecessors did. And he fully deserves the Nobel Peace Prize,” he said.
It’s a damn shame our own country is filled with people who can’t recognize Trump’s accomplishments.
They waste time throwing hate at the White House. Leftists hatch plan after plan to get rid of him. Sadly, they’ll never understand that riding the Trump train is a once in a lifetime journey. But we do. And that’s exactly why we’ll win #FourMoreYears!
