CJR: Here is the Summit hosted by Breitbart, Center for Security Policy and High Frontier in it’s entirety. I will post clips as they become available. Scott Cooper is to be commended for his role in organizing and promoting this very urgent CALL TO ACTION. And I will pass on to you what I thought was a very moving tribute to Frank Gaffney by Dymphna at Gates of Vienna. Frank Gaffney is indeed a national treasure and his efforts over the years to help educate the public and inform our leaders on National Security issues have no doubt contributed greatly towards “Securing Freedom”
What you will hear from the various speakers, as well as the very informative comments from members in the audience, is a comprehensive assessment of our National Security vulnerabilities due to the Islamic Global Jihad Movement and our present administration’s willful blindness amounting to complicity in aiding our enemies.
Obama’s rush to withdraw from Iraq without a status of forces agreement has given us the rise of ISIS. With the empowerment of Iran through the appeasement of their nuclear program we are witnessing the beginning of a Middle East nuclear arms race and continued bloody sectarian battles between Shia and Sunni that will likely rage on for generations and create thousands of battle hardened jihadis ready to export their violence across the globe.
Clare Lopez reminds us that we have, through captured documents such as The Project, The Muslim Brotherhood’s Memorandum of Understanding and the seven phase al-Qaeda master plan, proof that there is a decades old plan to infiltrate and subvert Western secular governments and replace them with Islamic Sharia theocracy. And as Clare ominously notes, they are amazingly on schedule in achieving their goals.
As John Guandolo explains, what is actually taking place is an Islamic insurgency. What is needed is for the counterjihad movement to mount a counter-insurgency. It is at the local level where we can make the most difference. Watch and learn about the extent of the problem and what we as citizens MUST DO in order to fight back. The hour is late and the enemy is inside the gate!
Here is the intro at Breitbart:

The South Carolina National Security Action Summit is designed to ensure that our national security receives the attention it requires from elected officials and their constituents, alike – both at the federal level, AND the state level.
Frank J. Gaffney, Jr., President of Secure Freedom, formerly known as the Center for Security Policy said:
“Americans are increasingly aware that the world is becoming an ever-more-dangerous place. They expect their leaders to protect them and our vital interests around the world. The National Security Action Summit is a place where the best minds convene to lay out the best ideas for doing that. At the state-level, these summits are an invaluable method of connecting a concerned citizenry to the forefront of policymaking at both the state and federal levels. This weekend’s program could not be more timely, more content-rich or more important.”
