Speaking to Americans as if they're children and intentionally, and consistently, avoiding the word "terrorism," while simultaneously telling people that an explosive device was intentionally placed in a crowded downtown area of Manhattan on a Saturday night, is the pinnacle of leadership failure. Avoiding calling a threat what it is speaks to a persistent weakness among our political leadership and sends a dangerous signal to the people around the world who wish to do us catastrophic harm.
We will never remedy a problem which we can't recognize.
The SJW in this piece apparently can't handle the sight of a Trump hat on her campus. What a joke.
Please take a look at my tribute to Secret Service Special Officer Craig Miller in the below video. He was one of the many patriots who perished on that day. God bless America, and all of those who defend Her.
1. We are mired in the worst "recovery" from a recession in modern American history (go, look it up) and the sorry far-left still wants to "blame Bush." We are seven-plus years into this failed administration and the best they can do is say "Bush did it"? Imagine a football coach into his seventh losing season and STILL blaming the prior coach. He would be laughed off of the field. But, Obama gets a pass? Pathetic.
2. Every single marker the left set for success for Obamacare has been missed by a long-shot. Everything conservatives said would happen, from sky-high premium increases, to cancelled plans, to Doctor shortages, to exploding deductibles, is happening to real people, right now. And what's the left's response? They say "it could've been worse." No, it couldn't have "been worse." This is exactly what "worse" looks like.
3. Our foreign policy is a total disaster, student loan debt is reaching critical mass, and our public education system cannot escape the cycle of failure. And what's the radical-left's response? They say "well, the stock market's up." What? Really? I thought Wall Street was the enemy? Isn't that what you've told us?
This is the real story of what liberalism does to a country in crisis. Deal with it.
This desire for control also explains the organizations, people, and entities on the radical-left’s enemies list. So, who are the members of the far-left’s enemies list and why are they there?

Why is this so difficult for political leaders? They engage in verbal contortions to avoid stating the obvious after a terrorist attack.
While it's perfectly appropriate to gather the evidence and available information on the Chelsea explosion before drawing a definitive conclusion as to the motive, it's bizarre the lengths to which some left-leaning politicians will go to avoid using the word "terrorism."

With every new “basket of deplorables” type quote crossing the lips of a prominent American liberal, it becomes clear that their disdain for us is so powerful that it resists camouflage. There are a number of people who have written about this topic, offering theories on the genesis of this liberal hatred for the people they wish to govern. However, one quote from Fred Siegel’s excellent book The Revolt Against the Masses: How Liberalism has Undermined the Middle Class stands out to me. The quote, about early American liberal elites, reads:
"They felt that their status in America’s business culture was grossly inadequate given their obviously exceptional intelligence and extraordinary talent. Their simmering anger at what they saw as the mediocrity of democratic life led them to pioneer the now commonplace stance of blaming society for their personal failings. Animated by patrician spirit, they found the leveling egalitarianism of the United States an insult to their sense of self-importance."

Money is tough to come by in politics when you are a grassroots candidate. If you’ve ever run for public office as a legitimate outsider, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. During both of my congressional elections we raised a healthy, but not an exorbitant, amount of money. A good portion of that money came from the national exposure I received due to my rather unique story (resigning from the Secret Service during the Obama administration to run as a Republican in deep-blue Maryland). Believe me, I wish I could sit here in my office and tell you a more encouraging story. I wish I could tell all of the aspiring, passionate, and principled conservatives looking at a run for political office that donors and money will fly to you like a pigeon to a statue, but that’s simply not reality. Even with the national exposure my race received, it still took an enormous amount of work, through constant content creation, to build my email list, my snail-mail list, my Facebook audience, and my Twitter following. These are the tools which will provide you with the audience and, hopefully, the funds to run a successful campaign.

With that said, my upcoming writings here at Conservative Review will focus on some roadblocks to systemic change that I’ve seen during my time behind the scenes as both a Secret Service agent and a political candidate.

Dan and Paula have been married since 2003. Paula is an independent web design consultant who operates a successful small business in addition to being a full time parent to their two daughters, Isabel and Amelia. They reside in Palm City, Florida.
While working full time for the New York City Police Department, Dan used his accrued vacation time to attend the City University of New York where he completed both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Psychology, concentrating in both Neuro-Psychology and Behavioral Learning. During his tenure as a Special Agent with the U.S. Secret Service, Dan completed his second graduate degree, a Master’s of Business Administration at Penn State University, where he tested at the top of his class.
New York City Police Department
Dan began his career with the NYPD in 1995 as a Police Cadet while attending The City University of New York full time. During his tenure in the Cadet program, Dan was a member of the distinguished pattern identification unit which specialized in the identification and apprehension of serial criminals. Dan also performed many hours of undercover operations in a number of New York City’s communities. Dan graduated from the Cadet program and became a full time Police Officer in 1997, where he graduated with honors from the New York City Police Academy. Dan spent the next two years patrolling the streets of Brooklyn, New York where he saw first-hand the devastation of years of failed social policy and experimentation. He would never see the world the same way again after his experiences with the good citizens of Brooklyn. Dan left the NYPD with official commendations for both meritorious and excellent police duty.
United States Secret Service
Dan proudly joined the ranks of the U.S. Secret Service in 1999 as a Special Agent where he graduated the Secret Service training academy with academic honors. Beginning his career in the New York Field Office, he was assigned to investigate federal crimes including but not limited to protective intelligence, computer crimes, bank fraud, credit card fraud and counterfeiting. His early career was marked by a number of investigative successes. Although the details of his signature investigation are still for official use only, it involved over 300 million dollars in potential financial fraud and a nexus to international terrorism. This joint investigation in cooperation with the FBI, IRS, SSA and a number of local police agencies, was responsible for shutting down a major international fraud ring. The investigation earned Dan the Department of Justice recognition award, along with other agency specific awards, for excellence in investigations.
Dan left the New York Field Office in 2002 to become an instructor at the Secret Service Training Academy in Beltsville, Maryland. He was the project manager for the re-design of the investigative tactics training program which he subsequently taught to incoming trainees. Dan was awarded a number of commendations for his work in researching and re-designing the investigative curriculum to reflect current trends crime trends.
In 2006, Dan entered into duty on the elite Presidential Protection Division in the administration of President George W. Bush, graduating at the top of his class in the difficult detail training program. Dan distinguished himself early by becoming one of the earliest tenured Special Agents to be given responsibility for an operational section of the protective detail. Dan remained on protective duty during the change in administration to President Barack Obama and again distinguished himself by quickly becoming the highest ranking member of his operational shift of agents. With this distinction came greater responsibility and Dan quickly rose to the challenge. He was designated as the lead agent responsible for the coordination of the President’s trip to Prague for the signing of the START treaty, his trip to Jakarta, Indonesia, amongst a myriad of terror threats, and finally as the lead agent responsible for the President’s visit to an active war zone in Afghanistan. With the successful coordination of these historic events, Dan was awarded a series of commendations and left the protective detail as one of the most distinguished agents in their history.
Dan transferred to the Baltimore Field Office in 2010 where he immediately made an impact on the community, breaking up one of the largest fraud rings in Maryland's history (http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2011-03-24/news/bs-md-hermann-car-loan-scheme-20110324_1_feds-bust-rental-car-rental-agencies/3).
