Timidity in the face of barbarity. We’ve seen this pattern increasing across Europe as the 2015 wave of massive Muslim immigration has led to jihadist attacks and fear of attacks. Here was a case not so much of a specific threat as it was the native Dutch citizens deciding they simply didn’t want their elementary school children to experience an atmosphere of unease during a town Christmas festival.
This election will determine the fate of our nation. With Donald Trump we have a chance, and it is only that. Over the past few years we have learned to our shock and dismay just how corrupt and out of touch our elected officials really are.

The mayor of New York City doesn’t think it’s terrorism. Apparently the note written in Arabic that was carefully left behind, the eruption of Islamist boasts on social media, and the knifer in Minnesota, Dahir Adan, asking people if they were Muslim before stabbing them, were not helpful clues.
What were the lessons of September 11? Was it merely a clever exploitation of a chink in America’s armor by a little terrorist cell? And what should our response be today besides candles, teddy bears, and symbolic tributes?
