People seem to forget that political comebacks aren’t a thing of the past. Richard Nixon lost two big elections, one for president and one for governor, then came back and trounced Humphrey. Even though he lost the nomination in 2008 and the presidency four years later, Mitt Romney could pull off a mirror image of what was done in 1968 with some work. Anything is possible in the well trekked galaxy of politics.

Congressman Hunter believes ISIS does not pose an immediate threat to the United States. With all due respect, he is strategically incorrect. Islamist extremists have America in their sights, and it is only a matter of time before they act upon their desire to do us harm. To believe otherwise only serves as ammunition for those who want us to embrace the false illusion of safety. We are sorely unprepared and this must change before we are blindsided.

Masks are used to hide fear, and Americans will inflict that fear if we are wronged, and with no negotiation and no mercy.

Fear will not deter the American people from standing up to those who choose to use it as a weapon. Terrorist acts against our nation will not go unnoticed or unpunished, and we will not relent in our mission to crush our adversaries. Support for freedom surpasses the support for fear.

It has never been a secret that radical Islamists have their eyes on the United States. Their mission is to strike fear into the American people, and to attack our country as they did once before. Being unprepared is not an option, and I demand that our leadership in Washington take the appropriate steps - and right this moment - to prevent another deadly attack on us. The threat is real and it is growing, and we would be fools not to believe that they are already here, planning and waiting.

I am a defender of freedom and an adversary to those who perpetrate fear. Freedom will always prevail over fear, as God stands beside us as we do what must be done to preserve that freedom and eradicated that fear. We stand united in this cause.

A federal judge has ordered Eric Holder to provide missing Fast and Furious documents to Congress by the beginning of October. But, he might be too busy race baiting in Ferguson to give a damn about one of the steepest scandals during the Obama era. Americans deserve not only answers, but nothing but the absolute truth.

Negotiating with terrorists is nonnegotiable. Paying ransoms demanded by these enemies of freedom will only serve to fund their agenda of evil around the world. I implore our government to not even consider this terrible possibility. We cannot support their barbaric reign of terrorist acts.

It has been reported that Darren Wilson, the officer who shot Michael Brown last week, was severely beaten by the latter before he was killed. This individual did what he needed to do to save his life, as those in the law enforcement community are trained for. Now everyone can ask again who was the real victim in this altercation?
