Warning to all Americans: Our government is outsourcing our safety and security to private and foreign companies. Even foreign-government-owned ones!
If the department charged with the responsibility of protecting all of us is, itself, not even adequately protected, then how safe are we?
When Bill Clinton became President, one of the first things he did was do away with traditional security at the White House. During his eight year tenure, there were many scandals about security lapses, breaches and leaks at Los Alamos. Not to mention his sellout of dual-use satellite technology to China through and to benefit his major American campaign donor and his major foreign Chinese donors to his campaigns, his setting up a wall between U.S. law enforcement and the U.S. intelligence community to keep them from communicating with each other, and his refusal to enforce U.S. border and immigration laws.
Clinton also let Osama bin Laden slip through his fingers, did little or nothing about foreign terrorism against our military and homeland, and hid from the incoming Bush administration the known intel about three of the 9/11 suicide bombers---known for up to 2 years before 9/11. And he left a seriously weakened and political national security community to his successor.
Now he is a paid agent of and lobbyist for a foreign Islamic government---one trying to take over managment of 6 more U.S. seaports of entry---without his being registered with the U.S. government as either. It is not a foreign private company---it is a foreign-government-owned company that Bill Clinton is getting paid megabucks to work for their interests, not those of the United States and its security. Just as then President Clinton fought successfully---except in one instance---to get the Chinese government in control of U.S. seaports of entry on the West Coast.
Pres. George W. Bush has fought hard to set up new homeland security protections, reform the intelligence community and defend America against Islamic fundamentalist terrorists' declared war against it and all Americans.
The Democrat hard-left has declared its own war against the GWB administration, fought Bush and his proposed programs and reforms viciously at every bend and turn, and worked steadily and seditiously to bring about the Vietnamization of and failure of the Iraq War. Their major goal is to bring nothing but failure and destruction to Bush and his entire administration. For over five years now, they have brought no new ideas, solutions, or anything positive of their own to the table---choosing instead to just carp, obstruct, undermine and vilify, as they wallow in self-generated political hatred.
Isn't it time for all the rest of us to do our part to require our government and elected officials to get back in the business of following the U.S. Constitution, enforcing all U.S. laws, and protecting and defending us and our country before it is too late?
We are in the midst of a war for the preservation of civilization as we know it, and petty, self-serving partisan politicians---including two renegade Democrat past presidents who almost daily break with precedent, tradition and honor---need to either stand up for the Constitution and U.S. rule of law or shut up and get out of the way.
How do you feel about the deterioration of American security? And what are you prepared to do about it?
