"It's The Ideology, Stupid: No Such Thing As 'Lone-Wolf Terrorism'"

Sebastian Gorka, one of the world's leading counter-terrorism experts and author of the New York Times Bestseller, "Defeating Jihad", believes:
"'Lone-wolf terrorism' is a phrase that is designed to make Americans stupid. The idea that a person is an upstanding American citizen on Monday and then on Tuesday suddenly becomes a raving jihadi decapitating his fellow man is absurd. It doesn't happen."
The connection, according to Gorka, between all so-called "lone-wolf terrorism" is the ideology of jihad. "It's not about a mastermind in a cave somewhere...It's sharing the same belief set."

"If you push the (Obama) administration on where terrorism comes from, they say it is unemployment and lack of education. As anybody with beyond a double-digit IQ can tell you, this is utterly absurd and fallacious. If poverty and lack of education caused terrorism, then half of India would be terrorists--but they're not."

What's missing?

"This administration cannot admit that truth because they've stated as an article of faith, not fact, that religion can have nothing to do with this war. They've painted themselves into this absurd corner where they deny the Islamic State is Islamic."

Contrasting the two presidential candidates, Gorka said, "Out of 320 million people, we have slim pickings. The Democratic candidate is either going to be a third term of Barack Obama or even worse. Clinton has said she refuses to associate the threat of terrorism with any religious concept."

Though Trump is not a national security person, according to Gorka, "He's hired people, some of whom are excellent, and hopefully he'll listen to them. I can't judge that right now, but I can judge one thing: this is a man who can't stand political correctness, admits we are at war, and clearly wants to win. Those three things alone are not enough to win the war, but they're a good foundation."

A wise man once said: "Your children, my grandchildren, will be hunting jihadists a hundred years from now unless we take down their ideology of global jihadism." --Sebastian Gorka, testimony to House Armed Services Committee on Emerging Threats
"Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep, but are really wolves that will tear you apart. You can detect them by the way they act, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit...A healthy tree produces good fruit, and an unhealthy tree produces bad fruit...Yes, the way to identify a tree or a person is by the kind of fruit that is produced" -- Matthew 7:15-17, 20.
