“Nobody should be surprised by what happened in San Bernardino . . . If it happened right now this afternoon, this evening, tomorrow . . . nobody should be surprised.” ~ Commissioner Bernard Kerik, who headed the New York City’s emergency response forces on 9/11
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” ~ Isaiah 9:6 (KJV) . . . “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever.” ~ Revelation 11:15 (KJV)
We continue to believe there are solutions to each of the problems we face. We continue to believe that our elected leaders follow public opinion and engaged citizens, so now more than ever we need your help to continue applying the correct pressure on our elected leadership.
As you wrap up your year, thinking about your “did well’s” and “things to improve upon” next year we ask that you would also review the work High Frontier has invested in this year.
Last week two important ballistic missile defense (BMD) tests demonstrated significant improvements in the Navy’s Standard Missile that either is or will be deployed at sea on our and Japan’s Aegis BMD ships — and on land as the interceptor of the Aegis Ashore sites in Romania and Poland. These same interceptors also should be charged with defending Americans at home from ballistic missiles launched from off-shore vessels, especially in the Gulf of Mexico.

Yesterday was the 74th anniversary of the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, a classic “Black Swan” event in that it was unexpected but should have been, as concluded after the fact. Two years ago, I suggested we were courting another “surprise” attack that should be identified now and countered while there may still be time to prevent or defend against it. Two years have passed, the threat has grown and we seem to be beginning to address it—so, a “Gray” Swan? Will we respond in time?
“Billions of government dollars are being spent to subsidize so-called renewable power, mainly wind and solar . . . intrinsically intermittent, as clouds pass in front of the sun, and the wind comes and goes. In small doses the grid can handle intermittent power, but to accommodate a lot of this power, a new approach is being promoted: the so-called smart grid . . . centralizing control [and increasing] the vulnerability of the grid to terrorist hacking.” Norman Rogers, The American Thinker, November 21, 2015
As we pause to give thanks for all our blessings, it is good to remember lessons learned from those who came before us, and to recommit ourselves to keeping this land free and prosperous for those who follow us. Memories give us a context for seeing and meeting our opportunities to leave this land better than we found it — with the help of the Sovereign of the Universe, so may it be . . .
President Obama has claimed that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is a “JV Team” (January 27, 2014) that we are going to “degrade and ultimately destroy” (September 10, 2014), that is “now contained” … and “continues to shrink” (November 13, 2015), just hours before coordinated ISIS attacks in Paris, carried out at six sites, in at least two restaurants, the French national soccer stadium and a theater.
Contained? Really??? Delusional, to be generous!!!
Tomorrow, while enjoying a holiday in our busy lives, we should remember those who served — and in many cases who paid with their very lives — to give us this great nation that is our heritage. We should rededicate ourselves to keeping America true to its heritage for our posterity. So pause with me and remember . . . Never let us forget!
