Secure Freedom Minute: Are We Ready for the REAL Domestic Terrorists?

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. It’s no secret that domestic terrorists are intent on inflicting violent harm in our country. It turns out, though, they’re not the white supremacists we’re incessantly told are the greatest threat. Instead, they are anarchists and Marxists who have seized on the impending Supreme Court ruling…

Secure Freedom Minute: Evidently, Hunter Wasn’t Available

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. Just as the danger posed by the Chinese Communist Party is reaching unprecedented heights, the Biden State Department has chosen an “Old Friend” of China to manage the bilateral relationship. Evidently, Hunter Biden wasn’t available. Instead, Tom Donilon got the gig. As Barack Obama’s national security…

Secure Freedom Minute: Don’t Go There, Joe

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. There may be a worse time for Joe Biden to pay a visit to the Middle East, but it is hard to think of one. The government of Israel has just fallen, its parliament disbanded and the fifth round of elections in three years called for…

Secure Freedom Minute: Paging President Monroe

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. The election of an erstwhile narco-terrorist leader to be Colombia’s next president moves Latin America to the brink of being entirely run by this country’s enemies. With the fall of Peru and Chile to Communists last year and the prospect that Brazil’s electorate may soon return…

Secure Freedom Minute: Deter the CCP Now!

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. Team Biden’s appalling surrender of Afghanistan last year shocked the world. Many were similarly astonished when the U.S. administration effectively encouraged Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February. There can be no surprise about Biden’s next – and most dangerous – failure to deter aggression, namely the…

Secure Freedom Minute: High Time to Revisit the CCP’s Covid Lab-Leak

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. Last month, the World Health Organization sought with the help of the Biden administration to secure sweeping new powers to dictate what constitute public health emergencies and how they will be addressed. That gambit was blocked by an unexpected surge of opposition from nations not as…

Secure Freedom Minute: The CCP Ratchets Up Its Belligerence

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. On Monday, Communist China ratcheted up yet again its territorial claims to the waters, airspace and resources of the Western Pacific. Beijing declared that it “has sovereignty, sovereign rights and jurisdiction over the Taiwan Strait,” the 90-mile-wide stretch that separates Taiwan’s island from the Chinese mainland.…

Secure Freedom Minute: The Senate GOP’s “White Flag” Initiative

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. “Do something” is not generally a prescription for considered and appropriate action in an emergency. That’s especially true when the proposed options require the compromise of Americans’ constitutional rights. A gaggle of Republican Senators have just agreed with Democratic counterparts that the something they are prepared…

Secure Freedom Minute: How NOT to Deter War with the CCP

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. Last week, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and his Chinese counterpart, Gen. Wei Fenghe, held an “emergency meeting” in Singapore. Evidently, it went pretty much as have other conversations between senior Biden officials like Secretary of State Tony Blinken and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, which…

Secure Freedom Minute: The Questions the January 6th Committee Won’t Answer

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. The prime-time launch last night by the House Select Committee on January 6th showed that it’s promoting a false narrative of a government-toppling “insurrection,” not pursuing the truth. After all, the truth is there would have no been penetration of the Capitol had it been on…

Secure Freedom Minute: Paging Scoop Jackson

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. As a young man, I had the privilege of working for five years for a great Democratic Senator named Henry “Scoop” Jackson. He would not recognize his party today, and probably would not be willing to be associated with its agenda. Take, for example, the Democrats’…

Secure Freedom Minute: We Need a Pro-Freedom Summit of the Americas

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. The Summit of the Americas taking place in Los Angeles this week should be a moment to address a shocking reality: As a result of decades of not-so-benign neglect of the region by the U.S. government, one Latin American nation after another has succumbed to the…

Secure Freedom Minute: Biden’s “war through weakness”

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. Last August, Joe Biden failed to deter the Taliban’s final assault in Afghanistan. In fact, his conduct – and odious orders to the U.S. military to cut-and-run in the middle of the night, leaving $83 billion worth of advanced weaponry behind – not only assured, but…

Secure Freedom Minute: Bush 41’s Ominous Tiananmen Legacy

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. Thirty-three years ago last weekend, the Chinese Communist Party murdered tens of thousands of students and others in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square and elsewhere for courageously protesting its abuses, corruption and oppression. These massacres were vivid reminders that Communists care only about power – acquiring, maintaining and…

Secure Freedom Minute: “Unfitting,” Indeed – No TSP for the CCP

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. Within hours of the board that oversees the federal government’s $800 billion retirement fund giving the Chinese Communist Party access to its participants’ money, four Biden nominees to that board have signaled that they oppose the practice. In a letter to Senators holding up their confirmation,…

Secure Freedom Minute: You Can’t ”Check” People with No Known Background

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. Another day, another mass casualty shooting. Inevitably, federal legislators will redouble efforts to give the appearance of “doing something” to stop such violence. One idea under consideration is “universal” background checks. There’s a significant problem that arises from what is, arguably, the most enduring impact of…

Secure Freedom Minute: Stop the Assaults on the ”Bodies of Others”

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. We seem to have dodged a bullet last week at the World Health Assembly. No, it wasn’t the 9-millimeter kind President Biden wants to restrict. Rather, it was one Team Biden aimed at our sovereignty via proposals to let a proxy for the Chinese Communist Party…

Secure Freedom Minute: Stop the Thrift Savings Plan Board’s ”Treacherous Sedition”

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. Incredibly, at the stroke of midnight tonight, an obscure federal agency will enable the retirement savings of military men and women, past and present, and their civilian counterparts to be invested in companies controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. Worse yet, the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment…

Secure Freedom Minute: Our Last Memorial Day?

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. Memorial Day is dedicated to honoring the sacrifice of those who served and died so that the rest of us might enjoy the blessings of liberty. If the Chinese Communist Party has its way, though, this one might be our last. That ominous possibility was a…

Secure Freedom Minute: Is Team Biden Lost in the ”Fog of Peace” – or Worse?

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute. Memorial Day is more than just a time to remember the sacrifice of fallen American heroes. It’s a living testament to the essentiality of practicing “Peace through Strength” to prevent needless wars – and to win those we must fight. Yesterday, Secretary of State Tony Blinken…
