Allen West’s new op-ed metaphorically takes a hammer to our skulls and bashes it in with the realization of what the Appeals Court’s decision really means. And it is a morbid reality. You must read this and share with your friends.

I know the topic du jour is the Ninth Circuit Court decision on President Trump’s temporary travel halt on seven countries — first named by Barack Obama. We can discuss this ad nauseam, ad infinitum, but there’s one thing crystal clear: judicial activism has now crept into foreign policy and national security decisions.
Perhaps this should just be left alone, and let the progressive socialist left own the consequences of our national security. If the liberal progressives no longer believe we are a sovereign nation and entry into our country is a privilege, not a right, then let them own it.
We know what happened with Tashfeen Malik and the fiancee visa. We know what happened, and continues to happen, with student visas. Sadly, no one came out and protested and cried all over the place when Barack Obama did likewise in his tenure with Iran, and changed the Cuban immigration policy in his final week in office. Such abhorrent hypocrisy.
The lesson we need to glean from this court decision, and the reaction of the left is that they cannot be trusted with the national security of the United States. The wholesale move towards the open border and sanctuary city — and state — movement demonstrates they seek to undermine the sovereignty of this Constitutional Republic.
And sadly, there’s more evidence that the liberal progressive left wants to leave America unprotected.
We shared with you earlier this week the sad state for U.S. Navy combat aviation platforms, namely their F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet fleet. We close out the week with more horrific news about the deplorable state of affairs of our military.
One of the things any good commander looks for is maintenance trends. I’d be interested to know if this has been a recurring trend at the end of every year…and if so, how long has this been going on?
My assessment is that this is yet another ramification of the eight years of an Obama administration that sought to and did spend more on welfare programs than our national security.
What every concerned American must realize now is that in this period of transition, we are telegraphing a serious deficiency and weakness. The left has so decimated our force, and yes, this clearly falls at the lap of the one who was commander in chief for the past eight years. As well, we have just telegraphed to the world — especially to Islamic jihadists — that the doors are wide open.
