Earlier today, Heritage hosted the Directors of the DNI, NSA, and FBI to discuss America’s security.

Specifically, they discussed the reauthorization of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) which provides invaluable information on non-U.S. people oversees. Some estimates say that Section 702 is responsible for more than 25 percent of all current intelligence collected.

The program is so crucial to America’s security that Congress should reauthorize Section 702 in its current form before the deadline at the end of this year.

Learn more about what FISA enables and watch the remarks below:

Your continued support allows Heritage to bring together the decision makers and the best and brightest minds to solve these critical issues our nation faces.

What are the top three security threats facing our nation today and what do you think should be done to solve them?

1. Cyberattacks on financial systems, the electrical grid, and other high-priority targets. These can play into the hands of the violent Left as trigger-points.
2. The violent left, including Antifa, Indivisible, La Raza, Black Lives Matter, and all the other Soros-financed groups. They will use civil disorder in their attempts to take down the Trump presidency and intimidate Congress.
These must be infiltrated and watched for weapons and explosives.
3. It is known that the nuclear plans of North Korea and Iran depend on one or a few EMP weapons, not a large-scale surface war. The only countermeasure would be assurance of EMP retaliation on their sponsors, Russia and China.

1. We need secure Borders above all.
2. We need to keep radical Islam out. (Borders).
3. This country was founded on Judeo Christian values. We need it back in schools, not islam. We need to teach the history of our constitution and where it came from. God still counts!!!!

Domestically we need to fix the economy in order to do anything and we need to roll back the secular progressive assault on our culture. On the Foreign front, we have both NOKO and Iran to deal with, both of whom want to become nuclear capable and we have an incompetent UN.
Some items that will help:
Reform tax code & cut taxes
Change the way we fund Public Schools to eliminate the unions influence and use school choice vouchers
Pres Trump’s decertification of Iran deal good step in right direction
Stand firm on rule of law regarding immigration issues & build wall
Probably will have to use military action with respect to NOKO to get their attention – end of regime may be only answer
Sell off federal land that should be the perview of the States
No reason to address the Palestinian issue until they shed HAMAS

Top threat is homelife and schools. Kids are not learning American culture or how to become successful citizens and parents. Soros and the left want to change the world and destroy our 20th century civilization. Nigel Farage describes how this is proceding in the EU. The Left do not admit it but despite their lip service to democracy they are totalitarians.
