WIKILEAKS: Making the Case FOR Living with Terrorism

wikileaks-terrors
Wikileaks reveals part of Hillary’s propaganda operation with this email to Podesta. In this case, the idea is how to sell the public on accepting terrorism.

This is what’s wrong with the deadly actions and philosophy of Hillary Clinton and President Obama in empowering radical Islamist regimes in the Middle East, and in rushing to bring in unscreened refugees.

Americans never had terrorism and don’t want it. We don’t want to become like Europe or the Middle East, yet “open borders” Clinton will continue and expand Obama’s scheme to bring in millions more unscreened illegal and legal immigrants as well as unscreened refugees from countries which are host to terrorism.

This propaganda line echoes the same message given in a speech I attended this year with Dr. Gregory Treverton, Chairman of the National Intelligence Council, where he similarly said terrorism was so rare that we should not care.

Tragically, people in Europe and the Middle East wish they had stopped terrorism when it was rare, and after a term or two of Clinton, terror may be as common and permanent as it is in Europe and the Middle East.

By pretending terrorism isn’t a problem as long as it is rare sets up the premise that nothing should be done until it is not rare, but common and taking lives of Americans every day. But by that time it will be too late.

Dr. Allison does a terrible injustice to Americans who want to safeguard their families, communities and country from terrorism by comparing them with the Salem witch trials. Sorry, the threat of terrorism is very real and without fast and effective action, will engulf our nation as it has in Europe and the Middle East.

Donald Trump will take effective action to stop terrorism, Hillary Clinton will enable its rapid, deadly and unstoppable expansion. That is your choice in this election.

Fear death from tree limbs, not terrorists

From: [email protected] To: [email protected] Date: 2016-02-23 00:04 Subject: Fear death from tree limbs, not terrorists

Colleagues & Friends,

Polls find that 80 percent of Americans expect another major terrorist attack in the near future. Fifty-one percent fear that they or one of their family members will be the victim of such an attack.

But now citizens of Massachusetts have a new cause for alarm: the sky really is falling — or at least, objects are falling from the skies. Earlier this month, after a snowstorm, two of Canton’s 21,000 residents, sadly, were struck dead by tree limbs in less than 24 hours. As I point out in The Boston Globe, a person living in the United States is over 100 times more likely to be killed by falling objects than by jihadi terrorists. The same person is 2,931 times more likely to be murdered with a firearm.

What are we to make of these brute facts? First, the truth is that we live in a dangerous and unpredictable world. Although we can take prudent precautions, we can’t entirely eliminate risk. Second, hysteria about the threat of jihadi terrorism is just that: hysterical. Al Qaeda, ISIS, and other mutants of Islamist jihadism are real threats that must be addressed and defeated.

But terror-mongering that elevates foreign jihadists to levels where a majority of Americans fear for their families’ lives is no more reasonable than fears of witches that led our ancestors in 17th-century Salem to acts we now find insane.
