I am no fan of our current Department of State, primarily because it is an inbred hotbed of progressive socialist Ivy League intellectuals who believe that we can negotiate with terrorists who represent a clear and present existential threat to America and all Americans – if not our concept of modern civilization.

If you can believe the accounts of the progressive mainstream media, there are a number of American citizens – as well as citizens of other foreign nations with “no visa” entry permissions – who hold passports that can allow them to bring jihad to American cities without detection and deterrence.

So what is our State Department doing to tighten-up their passport and visa tracking systems?

Why is the State Department not demanding that certain American individuals present themselves at the nearest American Consulate or Embassy to show cause why their passports shall not be canceled and their American citizenship terminated?

And, how can we trust a State Department that continues to stonewall and hide the truth about the 9/11 anniversary terrorists attack on Benghazi and suspicions the State Department was engaged in the unconstitutional and illegal transfer of military arms to terrorists through Turkey? Weapons that are likely to have fallen into the hands of ISIS?

How can this happen – and these individuals continue to be identified as American?

“Small handful" of Americans are believed to be fighting with ISIS in Iraq, U.S. officials tell NBC News.

U.S. intelligence, law enforcement and military officials have for months declined to discuss the possibility that Americans had joined the Islamic extremist group blamed for beheading 40-year-old New Hampshire journalist James Foley as well as atrocities against Iraqis. But they now acknowledge it is likely that one or more Americans – but no more than a “small handful” -- have joined the fray.

The officials, who spoke with NBC News on condition of anonymity on Wednesday, say they base that opinion on analysis and a string of recent arrests and investigations of U.S. citizens who have sought to join the group that is simultaneously fighting government forces in both Iraq and Syria.

“It stands to reason that one or some of those Americans who have gone to Syria may have linked up with ISIS. It would not be surprising," said one senior U.S. intelligence official. “In general, we have found that Western fighters, not just those from the U.S., are joining the biggest game in town and the biggest game in town is ISIS.”

Where is the outrage?


(Douglas McAuthur McCain AKA "Duale ThaslaveofAllah")

American Douglas McAuthur McCain Dies Fighting for ISIS in Syria 

Douglas McAuthur McCain, of San Diego, California, was killed over the weekend fighting for the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), according to the Free Syrian Army.

Photos of McCain's passport and of his body -- which feature a distinctive neck tattoo -- have been seen by NBC News. According to an activist linked to the Free Syrian Army who also saw the body and travel document, McCain was among three foreign jihadis fighting with ISIS who died during the battle.

Senior administration officials told NBC News they were aware that McCain was killed in Syria and that his family was informed on Monday. The officials added that they believe dozens of Americans have gone to Syria to fight with extremist groups - including, but not limited to, ISIS.

"The threat we are most concerned about to the homeland is that of fighters like this returning to the U.S. and committing acts of terrorism," a senior administration official told NBC News.

This man ceased being American the minute he took up arms with a terrorist group – fighting against forces that include American advisors. Why is the progressive mainstream media not labeling this man as a traitor and an enemy of the state?

Bottom line …

It is time that those leading America realize that there is a fundamental difference between law enforcement and military operations. That people who take up arms against our nation or its allies, or provide material aid and comfort to our enemies, are traitors who need to be stripped of their American citizenship and their passports canceled.

Americans are being scammed by the Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, and the State Department because there are fundamental problems with keeping any list of foreign names on a watch list: one, due to the transliteration spelling of foreign names (Muhammad, Mohamad, Mohamed, Mohammad, Mohammed) can escape computer filtering; two, some names mean nothing but refer to a location (Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is also known as Ibrahim ibn Awwad ibn Ibrahim ibn Ali ibn Muhammad al-Badri al-Samarrai, formerly also known as Abu Du'a or the equivalent “man of Bagdad); and three, there is no guarantee that any terrorist will travel under their own name. In addition, many of these people might also have legitimate travel credentials from a government friendly to terrorists (Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, etc.).

The only thing we can do to protect America and Americans is to remove the progressive socialist democrats from office: from the House, the Senate, and the Presidency. We have a president who appears detached, delusional, and pro-Islam. Even worse, the progressive socialist democrats own the mainstream media and it has become little more than a propaganda arm of the government. Covering up the policy failures, both foreign and domestic, of Obama and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats.

ISIS is no longer a band of terrorists, but an enemy army invading nations. Muslim-Nazis, organized, well-armed, well-funded, and supported sub rosa by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and other nations who are trading support for temporary immunity against their overthrow.

We need to act in our best interests – not the progressive socialist democrats whose interests seem anti-American. We also need to restrict Americans from providing any aid to Islamic countries -- especially those who continue to function with 6th Century values.
