Check out this video with Patrick E. Howley and the comments by CNN’s Jake Tapper:
The editor-in-chief of Big League Politics weighted in on CNN host Jake Tapper’s bizarre decision to celebrate the phrase “Allahu Akbar,” after he was told that three witnesses heard Sayfullo Saipov, the Manhattan truck driver, who plowed into a sidewalk and bicycle lane–killing eight and injuring at least one dozen more.
“Allah Akbar is sometimes said under the most beautiful of circumstances,” said Jake Tapper, who as a young man worked for a group dedicated to banning handguns and who married a senior attorney for Planned Parenthood.
Patrick E. Howley, the founder of BLP, said he was disgusted by Tapper’s characterization of the phrase always exclaimed by radical Muslim terrorists, including Army Maj. Nidal M. Hasan, the Fort Hood, Texas shooter, who killed 13 and wounded 30 unarmed soldiers.
“If this is what Jake Tapper thinks is appropriate to say after a terrorist attack he should be ashamed of himself,” said Howley.
“Jake Tapper and CNN push leftist propaganda day-in-and-day-out,” he said.
“A terrorist attack is not the time for their tactics,” he said. “The mainstream media does not want to admit that radical Islam is behind these attacks–but, they cannot deny that this happened inside our borders.”
Locked and Loaded: Pentagon Grants Soldiers in DC Power to use Lethal Force
The National Guard have been authorized to use lethal force, if needed.
Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy has authorized the twenty thousand National Guard members providing security around the U.S. Capitol to carry lethal weapons as Washington, D.C., braces for Inauguration Day.
“On January 12, 2021, National Guardsmen were given authorization to be armed in support of the U.S. Capitol Police to protect the U.S. Capitol and individual members of Congress and their staff,” according to a statement from the D.C. National Guard, which is commanding Guard forces in the city, including units deployed from six other states, to provide security for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next week,” the DC National Guard revealed in a statement “This was requested by federal authorities and authorized by the Secretary of the Army.”
The National Guard Bureau declined to specify what weapons troops would carry.
“National Guard members are postured to meet the requirements of the supported civil authorities, up to and including protective equipment and being armed if necessary,” said the statement. “The public’s safety is our top priority.”
Gen. Daniel R. Hokanson, chief of the National Guard Bureau, told media members on Monday that a force of up to 15,000 will deploy to D.C. with all their issued equipment, including their individual weapons. So if the need arises, “they are close by and they are readily accessible.”
The Pentagon initially authorized up to six thousand two hundred Guard members from Maryland, Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania to deploy to D.C. on federal status to maintain security through Inauguration Day.
The history of National Guard members being a part of the presidential inauguration dates back to the first inauguration of President George Washington in 1789.
