It’s No Longer A Question Of If Or When… ISIS Is Here

October 30, 2014

What Are You Thinking? What Is The Delay When It Comes To Passing The Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014!

It has been reported that untold numbers of U.S. citizens and legitimate passport holders have gone to the Middle East and have joined ISIS. Social media sites are flush with postings from Islamic terrorists who are saying that plans are already underway to send these people to the United States to commit multiple and massive acts of terror on U.S. soil.

That being the case, the American people have a number of questions that deserve immediate answers:

1) How does the Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014 affect "fundamental constitutional rights" when current law already deems that those who fight with a foreign nation that is hostile to the United States have voluntarily relinquished their citizenship, and the Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014 simply amends that law to place those who join international terrorist organizations into that category? Do some of you honestly believe that the constitutional rights of ISIS terrorists trump the constitutional rights of other American citizens?

2) Why are some in the United States Senate presently blocking the Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014? Are some of you so obsessed over protecting the Obama Regime's narrative that ISIS is being degraded that you're willing to commit a grave sin of omission and thereby enable America's enemies and put thousands of American lives at risk?

3) Where's the outrage over the fact that the Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014 is being blocked. Where is the outrage over the phony and deceptive "civil liberty" arguments that are being advanced to justify the delay, particularly from those in the minority party? And moreover, why does it appear that far too many of you are seeking cover under your desks when you should be supporting Senator Cruz's attempts to pass this vital legislation?

Those questions deserve immediate answers and the American people deserve immediate action. Pass the Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014 and pass it now!

 Congressman Duncan Hunter recently announced that border patrol agents told him, in confidence, that ISIS terrorists are presently being apprehended trying to sneak across the border. 

Hunter is not alone. Judicial Watch claims that a confidential source in the Department of Homeland Security told them that even more ISIS terrorists were just apprehended AFTER making it to the United States. 

And to make matters worse... Islamic terrorists are still posting on social media sites that American citizens who went overseas to train with ISIS are about to be sent back to the United States to commit multiple and massive acts of terror on U.S. soil, and recent events in Canada should serve as proof that these postings are not idle threats. 

There's no longer any room for doubt. Terrorists are presently mobilizing to attack the United States. An attack could be imminent. It could come at any moment. Yet, in spite of this imminent threat, key Democrats are intentionally blocking Cruz's Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014 as RINOs cowardly dive under their desks for cover. 

And that is unacceptable and intolerable. As Cruz put it: "If we do not pass this legislation, the consequence will be that Americans fighting alongside ISIS today may come home tomorrow with a U.S. passport, may come home to New York or Los Angeles or Houston or Chicago and innocent Americans may be murdered if the Senate does not act." 

If RINOs are going to find their spines then it's up to patriotic Americans like you to stand with Ted Cruz, deluge these elected officials with calls and faxes and demand that they pass the Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014 as soon as humanly possible. 

 The question has to be asked. How does one explain the knee-jerk attacks against Senator Cruz? How does one explain the attempts by liberals to put words into Cruz's mouth and thereby confound conservatives? 

 How does one explain the phony arguments that are being used to discredit Cruz and trick conservatives and civil libertarians into opposing the Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014? 

Let's examine the headline from the Chicago Tribune at the top of this urgent alert: "Even Terrorists Have A Right To Citizenship." One of the main contentions of the article is that Senator Cruz "decries the expansion of federal power Obama has brought about" but "wants to give him [Obama] another power: deciding that some Americans will no longer be Americans." 

There's one big and glaring problem with the Tribune's contention. It's A LIE. 

The Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014 doesn't say that terrorists are not U.S. Citizens and it does not give Barack Obama (or any occupant of the Oval Office) the authority to decide "that some Americans will no longer be Americans." 

So why is Cruz being attacked? Why are people putting words in his mouth? 

The answer is simple. They're relying upon your ignorance by raising a totally phony civil liberties argument. The only question that remains unanswered is why. But one thing is certain, if patriotic Americans don't speak up, right here and right now, to expose this treasonous lie, they'll get away with it. 

The Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014 simply amends current U.S. law, specifically 8 U.S.C. 1481, a law that has been on the books for approximately 75 years. 

Under 8 U.S.C. 1481, there are very specific and narrowly defined oaths and actions a person can take that can be considered as a voluntarily renunciation of citizenship. 

 One of those actions is treason, another is "entering, or serving in, the armed forces of a foreign state if such armed forces are engaged in hostilities against the United States." 

The Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014 simply adds "a designated foreign terrorist organization" and "intentionally targeting nationals of the United States for acts of terror" to a law that has been on the books for 75 years. 

The point bears repeating. If you join a FOREIGN terrorist organization and you're going to INTENTIONALLY TARGET Americans for acts of terror, it can be deemed that you have VOLUNTARILY RENOUNCED your citizenship. And moreover, if someone is charged under the act they are still entitled to DUE PROCESS. 

Put another way, the law doesn't apply to those who have joined a domestic terror organization. The law doesn't apply to those who walk out into the street and simply preach that ISIS is "cool" and it doesn't give Barack Obama the authority to simply deem "that some Americans will no longer be Americans." So liberals can relax. Domestic Terrorist Bill Ayers won't be charged should the Expatriate Terrorist Act of 2014 become law. 

Senator Cruz even explained it for those who are too lazy to read the two-page bill: "The ETA amends an existing statute that provides certain actions by which a United States citizen renounces their citizenship to include becoming a member of, fighting for, or providing material assistance to a designated foreign terrorist organization that is working to attack the United States or its citizens. Provided the requirements of due process are observed, if a U.S. Citizen undertakes these acts with the intent of supplanting his U.S. Citizenship with loyalty to a terrorist organization, that person can be deemed to have forfeited their right to be a United States Citizen and return to the United States." 

Cruz went on to say: "Americans who choose to go to Syria or Iraq to fight with vicious ISIS terrorists are party to a terrorist organization committing horrific acts of violence, including beheading innocent American journalists who they have captured. There can be no clearer renunciation of their citizenship in the United States, and we need to do everything we can to preempt any attempt on their part to re-enter our country and carry out further attacks on American civilians." 

We could not have said it better, but it's not enough to simply speak the truth. We must support Senator Cruz and put truth to action.
