Judge Jeanine Pirro used her show Saturday night as a forum to warn America about the increasing threat of “lone wolf” terror attacks.
In her opening statement, Pirro praised officials in Canada and New York City for being willing to call recent attacks terrorism, but slammed the Obama administration, which “doesn’t have the guts to identify terrorism by its rightful name.”
She ran through a series of recent attacks that have happened in past year; “a woman beheaded in Oklahoma by a recently converted Muslim, angry over co-workers’ complaints that he was trying to convert them to Islam. Four murdered across the country by recently converted Muslims, saying it was in retaliation for Iraq, and four cops attacked by yet another radicalized Muslim convert in New York City, who attacks them with a hatchet.”
She added, “as the call for lone wolves to attack is met, you have to ask yourself if you’re doing everything you can to be safe.”
She had on retired US Navy Lt and founder for the Islamic Forum For Democracy, Zuhdi Jasser and Natl. security editor for the Blaze and former CIA officer Buck Sexton to discuss the threat of lone wolf attacks.
Pirro asked Jasser if he thought the United States was ready to handle this problem.
Jasser said “we really aren’t. It’s so sad – 13 years after 9/11 – and it’s not about the individual! Fasten your seat belts and we need to call upon Muslims to unbuckle ours,and start to counter the ideology.”
He continued, “this is not random acts. This is not nut cases. It’s not self radicalization. They’re feeding into an ideology that demonizes Americans – especially our police, our military…”
He called on Muslims to be actively be pro-American and anti-Jihadism.
Sexton pointed out that the call for jihadism is in the Koran – “it is textually based. ISIS is essentially a form of fundamentalists,” he explained. “They look at the texts, look at what is there and try to put it into action.”
He continued, “to say, for example as President Obama did, that it’s not Islamic, the Islamic State – or to say this is in no way part of Islam – is just on it’s face ridiculous and we have to keep pointing this out because there is a knee jerk defense from the left in this country from progressives and a lot of Democrats that this is a version of Islam that doesn’t exist anywhere – it just exists in the heads of the crazy people who take this up… it actually exists in the texts and until we understand that that can be put into action – that there’s an ideological basis for this, we will never actually begin to win that ideological war.”
Judge Jeanine Pirro -RPt: Obama Admin Mislead (Lied To) Congress & About Criminal Illegals:
Pirro also had on Republican Congressman Randy Forbes of Virginia to discuss the false testimony provided by former ICE Chief, John Morton, back in the Spring of 2013. As you recall, Morton had told Congress under oath, that none of the detainees released by ICE were dangerous felons. Two years later, proof has emerged that that was not the case.
“They weren’t blindsided by this question,” Forbes said. “My staff had asked them this question almost a month before, so they had plenty of time to prepare for it – then they came back in and still lied to us about it. The second thing to remember — which one frightens you the most? That they intentionally lied about it? )r they didn’t have a clue who it was that they were releasing into the community. Either one is very very dangerous.
The congressman said he would talk to Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte to see if charges can be brought against Morton for lying to Congress.
