Radical Mosques Must be Shut Down

radical_isalamThere are more than 80 radical mosques in America, according to the Clarion Project, a non-profit group that describes itself as “dedicated to exposing the dangers of Islamist extremism.”

The Conservative byte website published an article entitled “Sophisticated Network of Radical Mosques in U.S.” on November 21, 2015. The article explained that in addition to the radical Muslim training grounds around the country, now you have “got quite a group of nuts ready to do a lot of harm.”

France is no longer going to tolerate radical imams in mosques preaching hatred against the infidel and demanding to impose Shariah law on its society. French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve and others in the French government called for the “dissolution of radical mosques” following the terrorist attacks in Paris that killed at least 130 people and injured more than 300 individuals on November 13, 2015. Belgium’s Prime Minister, Charles Michel, threatened similar action in his country where the Paris attacks were staged and is currently in a lockdown and high state of alert for several days expecting an imminent attack in Brussels.

The article in Conservative byte explained that neither President Barack Obama nor other officials in his administration, however, have advocated of closing down radical mosques in the United States. There are more than 80 radical mosques in America, according to the Clarion Project, a non-profit group that describes itself as “dedicated to exposing the dangers of Islamist extremism.” Using Clarion’s definitions, The Daily Caller News Foundation has mapped these radical mosques. These mosques or their Imams have “radicalized U.S. Muslims to become terrorists, supported terrorist organizations, made radical Islamist remarks or hosted others that have, or are financially backed by radical individuals or organizations.”

The Clarion Project has stated the following: “Islamist extremists have developed a sophisticated network of interconnected organizations across America. The common thread among these organizations is their ideology of political Islam, which aspires to implement Shariah governance and to establish a global Islamic caliphate.” The map includes 83 – or nearly 4% – of the 2,106 mosques in the United States as of 2010. Several mosques on the Clarion Project’s list stand out.

The radical Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center Mosque and its terrorist’s connections

One of the mosques included in the Clarion Project’s list is Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center, which is located just outside Washington, D.C. in Falls Church, Virginia. This radical mosque was the place of worship of some of the 9/11 hijackers, the Islamic terrorist Fort Hood Texas mass murderer Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan, and the accused Christmas Day 2009 bomber.

Anwar al-Awlaki was the Imam at the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center Mosque between January 2001 and April 2002. Previously, he had been the Imam of the Masjid Ar-Ribat al- Islami Mosque in San Diego since 1996.Anwar al-Awlaki met with 9/11 hijackers Khalid al-Mihdhar, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Hani Hanjour in San Diego.

Fluent in English, al-Awlaki was known for giving eloquent talks on Islam and for having the ability to attract young non-Arabic speakers. According to Johari Abdul-Malik, al-Awlaki “was the magic bullet, he had everything all in a box, had an allure, and was charming.”

Al-Awlaki was a senior al-Qaida recruiter linked to various terrorists, including three 9/11 hijackers (Khalid al-Mihdhar, Nawaf al-Hazmi, and Hani Hanjour), Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the Fort Hood Texas serial assassin, and the accused Christmas Day 2009 bomber. Army Major Psychiatrist Nidal Malik Hasan was sentenced to death in 2013 for killing 13 people and wounding 32 others in a 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas. This was the worst mass murder at a military installation in U.S. history. Awlaki worked closely with the Saudi Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Nawaf al-Hazmi (left) was a Saudi citizen and one of five hijackers of American Airlines Flight 77. Khalid al-Mihdhar (right) was one of five hijackers of American Airlines Flight 77, which was flown into the Pentagon as part of the September 11 attacks. Mihdhar was born in Saudi Arabia and fought in the Bosnian War during the 1990s.

Two al-Qaida terrorists, Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi, set up their base of operations in San Diego upon their arrival in the United States with the assistance of a Saudi consulate official and two Saudi intelligence officers who were later investigated by the FBI and the press. They established a close relationship with Awlaki, who had been the Iman of the Masjid Ar-Ribat al-Islami mosque in San Diego from 1996 to 2000.



Masjid Ar-Ribat al-Islami is a Sunni mosque in San Diego, California, on 7173 Saranac Street on the San Diego-La Mesa, California border. Terrorist Anwar Al-Awlaki, who was a senior al-Qaeda recruiter and motivator linked to various terrorists, served as Imam of the mosque from 1996 to 2000.

Hani Hanjour was the Saudi Arabian hijacker-pilot of American Airlines Flight 77, who crashed the plane into the Pentagon. He had studied in the United States.

Hanjour arrived back in the United States in December 2000. He joined up with Nawaf al-Hazmi in San Diego, and they immediately left for Arizona where Hanjour took refresher pilot training. In April 2001, they relocated to Falls Church, Virginia and then Paterson, New Jersey in late May, where Hanjour took additional flight training. After leaving San Diego and Arizona in 2001 and moving to Falls Church, Virginia, Hani Hanjour specified the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center Mosque in Falls Church, Virginia as his forwarding mailing address. Hanjour and al-Hazmi attended Awlaki’s sermons at the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center Mosque.

Paul Sperry wrote an article called “Inside the Saudi 9/11 Cover-up” which was published by the New York Post on December 15, 2013. He described the act of war of Saudi Arabia perpetrated against our nation by writing the following:

LOS ANGELES: Saudi consulate official Fahad al-Thumairy allegedly arranged for an advance team to receive two of the Saudi hijackers — Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi — as they arrived at Los Angeles in 2000. One of the advance men, Omar al-Bayoumi, a suspected Saudi intelligence agent, left the Los Angeles consulate and met the hijackers at a local restaurant. (Bayoumi left the United States two months before the attacks, while Thumairy was deported back to Saudi Arabia after 9/11.)

SAN DIEGO: Bayoumi and another suspected Saudi agent, Osama Bassnan, set up essentially a forward operating base in San Diego for the hijackers after leaving Los Angeles. They were provided rooms, rent and phones, as well as private meetings with an American al-Qaeda cleric who would later become notorious, Anwar al-Awlaki, at a Saudi-funded mosque he ran in a nearby suburb. They were also feted at a welcoming party. (Bassnan also fled the United States just before the attacks.)

WASHINGTON D.C.: Then-Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar and his wife sent checks totaling some $130,000 to Bassnan while he was handling the hijackers. Though the Bandars claim the checks were “welfare” for Bassnan’s supposedly ill wife, the money nonetheless made its way into the hijackers’ hands.

Other al-Qaeda funding was traced back to Ambassador Bandar and his embassy — so much so that by 2004 Riggs Bank of Washington had dropped the Saudis as a client. The next year, as a number of embassy employees popped up in terror probes, Riyadh recalled Bandar. Our investigations contributed to the ambassador’s departure, an investigator who worked with the Joint Terrorism Task Force in Washington told me, though Bandar says he left for personal reasons.

FALLS CHURCH, VIRGINIA. In 2001, Anwar Awlaki and the San Diego hijackers turned up together again — this time at the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center, a Pentagon-area mosque built with funds from the Saudi Embassy. Awlaki was recruited 3,000 miles away to head the mosque. As its Imam, Anwar Awlaki helped the hijackers, who showed up at his doorstep as if on cue. He tasked a handler to help them acquire apartments and IDs before they attacked the Pentagon.

Anwar Awlaki worked closely with the Saudi Embassy. He lectured at a Saudi Islamic think tank in Merrifield, Va., chaired by Bandar. Saudi travel itinerary documents I’ve obtained show he also served as the ­official imam on Saudi Embassy-sponsored trips to Mecca and tours of Saudi holy sites. Most suspiciously, though, Awlaki fled the United States on a Saudi jet about a year after 9/11.

As I first reported in my book, Infiltration how Muslim Spies and Subversives have Penetrated Washington (2005), quoting from classified U.S. documents, the Saudi-sponsored cleric was briefly detained at JFK airport before being released into the custody of a “Saudi representative.” A federal warrant for Awlaki’s arrest had mysteriously been withdrawn the previous day. A U.S. drone killed Awlaki in Yemen in 2011.

HERNDON, VIRGINIA. On the eve of the attacks, top Saudi government official Saleh Hussayen checked into the same Marriott Residence Inn near Dulles Airport as three of the Saudi hijackers who targeted the Pentagon. Hussayen had left a nearby hotel to move into the hijackers’ hotel. Did he meet with them? The FBI never found out. They let him go after he “feigned a seizure,” one agent recalled. (Hussayen’s name doesn’t appear in the separate 9/11 Commission Report, which clears the Saudis.)”

Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center Mosque’s present Imam, Shaker Elsayed, described Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna’s teachings as “the closest reflection of how Islam should be in this life.” The Brotherhood “seeks to implement Shariah-based governance globally,” according to the Clarion Project. This radical mosque was founded in 1983 by a group of mostly Arab university students. It is also one of the area’s largest and most influential mosques. The Saudi-backed North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) purchased the mosque on June 19, 1983 and Saudi Arabia gave millions to this mosque.


Wikipedia explained that the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center Mosque holds prayers five times daily, and its attendance at Friday prayer is over 3,000 people. In September 2004, about 60% of its membership was Arab, with an increasing percentage coming from countries such as Pakistan, Ethiopia, and Bangladesh. Activities of the mosque, in addition to prayers include lectures, conferences, youth recreation and outdoor activities (such as camping and field trips) through its Youth Center, women’s classes, health fairs, and financial assistance programs. It also operates an Islamic School called the “Washington Islamic Academy in Northern Virginia”. Saudi financed textbooks denounce the infidels, support Shariah law, and advocate the very radical anti-Western Wahhabi Islam.

The Imams of Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center

Mohammed al-Hanooti (1937-2015) was the Imam of Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center from 1995 to 1999. He was born in Haifa during the British Mandate of Palestine. He spoke up for Mousa Mohammed Abu Marzook, who was deported in 1997 and indicted years later on charges of arranging financial support for Hamas, which the United States and the West consider a terrorist organization.

Mohammed al-Hanooti was the Imam of Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center from 1995 to 1999.

Mohammed Adam El-Sheikh

Mohammed Adam El-Sheikh, formerly a Muslim Brotherhood member in Sudan, and one of the founders of the Muslim American Society (MAS), was the mosque’s Imam between August 2003 and May 2005.

Wikipedia has an article describing the Muslim American Society (MAS). It explained that the MAS is a nonprofit organization founded in 1993 with its headquarter in Falls Church, Virginia. The Muslim American Society describes itself as “an Islamic revival and reform movement”. Its founding members were mainly foreign students of Arab descent. The Muslim American Society was created by the Muslim Brotherhood, after a debate among the members of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States about whether to remain underground, or to have a public face. The MAS has instructed its members to evade questions about the group’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, and to define jihad as a “divine legal right” of Muslims to be used for defense and the spread of Islam.

The MAS leaders have said that these views are not now held by MAS leaders. The MAS also has an affiliate, the MAS Freedom Foundation, whose Executive Director is Mahdi Bray. For a number of years, Esam Omeish was its President. He is a member of the Board of the of Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center.

The Muslim American Society has participated in interfaith dialogue with the United States Bishops’ Committee for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs. In November 2014, the MAS was designated a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.

Dr. Esam Omeish was President of the Muslim American Society which was created by the Muslim Brotherhood. He was born in Tripoli, Libya and is a physician. Omeish is a member of the Board of the of Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center.

As already stated, Anwar al-Awlaki was the Imam at the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center mosque between January 2001 and April 2002. A year later, Mohammed Adam El-Sheikh, formerly a Muslim Brotherhood member in Sudan and one of the founders of both the mosque and the Muslim American Society (MAS), was the mosque’s Imam between August 2003 and May 2005. He left the mosque to become the executive director of the Fiqh Council of North America, an association of Islamic legal scholars.

Mohammed Adam El-Sheikh stated that “suicide bombings are never legitimate in the United States.” The Sheikh told his congregation that “Islamic law does not allow suicide bombings in most instances.” Speaking of Palestinian suicide bombers, he said, “if certain Muslims are to be cornered where they cannot defend themselves, except through these kinds of means, and their local religious leaders issued “fatwas” (a legal opinion or decree handed down by an Islamic religious leader) to permit that, then it becomes acceptable as an exceptional rule, but should not be taken as a principle.” Therefore, Imam Mohammed Adam El-Sheikh condoned and supported suicide bombers.

Shaker Elsayed

Shaker Elsayed served as an unofficial spokesman for the family of Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, who had worshiped at Dar Al-Hijrah, and was charged with plotting to assassinate President George W. Bush. Elsayed said the case against Abu Ali was based on a confession to Saudi authorities he termed “laughable.” Elsayed accused the Justice Department of unfairly targeting Abu Ali and other young Muslims for prosecution.

Shaker Elsayed, a Shariah law scholar born in Cairo, Egypt, has been the resident Imam at Dar Al-Hijrah since June 1, 2005. From 2000 through 2005, Elsayed was the Secretary General of the Muslim American Society (MAS). He defended Ahmed Omar Abu Ali.


Abu Ali was sentenced to life in prison for planning to assassinate President George W. Bush.

Ahmed Omar Abu Ali is an American who was convicted of providing material support to al- Qaeda and conspiracy to assassinate President George W. Bush. He was born in Houston, Texas, in 1981 and raised in Falls Church, Virginia. Abu Ali was valedictorian of his class at the Islamic Saudi Academy High School in nearby Alexandria, Virginia. Abu Ali entered the University of Maryland in the fall of 1999 as an electrical engineering major, prayed at the Dar al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, but withdrew in the middle of the 2000 spring semester to study Islamic theology at the Islamic University of Medina in Medina, Saudi Arabia.

Abu Ali was arrested in Saudi Arabia. Later he was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Ahmed Omar Abu Ali worshiped and taught Islamic studies at the Dar al-Hijrah Mosque around that time, where he was also a camp counselor.

The Board of Directors and Executive Committee of the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque

The mosque’s nine-member board of directors consists of the Secretary General of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the President of the Muslim Arab Youth Association (MAYA), the General Manager of the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), the President of Muslim American Society (MAS), the President of the Dar Al-Hijrah Executive Committee, and four other members. All these organizations are fronts of the radical Muslim Brotherhood, which wants to impose Shariah law in the United States and the West. Its members have committed acts of terrorism around the world.

Dar Al-Hijrah has a seven-member executive committee; every two years four committee members are appointed by the mosque’s board of directors, while the other three are elected by its membership. Imams Shaker Elsayed and Johari Abdul-Malik serve on the Executive Committee.

Dr. Esam Omeish, former President of the MAS, is a member of the Board. Omeish acknowledged that some mosque members raised acceptable questions about the mosque’s constitution. He also said that various proposals under consideration in 2004 included direct elections to the mosque’s board of directors, director term limits, and phasing out the board seats that the constitution assigns to officials of certain Muslim organizations.

Abelhaleem Hasan Abdelraziq Ashqar, a member of the mosque’s Executive Committee, was convicted in November 2007 of contempt and obstruction of justice for refusal to testify before a grand jury with regard to Hamas and sentenced to 135 months in prison. Ashqar is a Palestinian Muslim activist and former Howard University business professor.

The Washington Post reported on August 21, 2004 that the Justice Department unsealed an indictment the day before accusing a senior Hamas leader and two other men of a 15-year racketeering conspiracy that raised millions of dollars for the terrorist Palestinian group. Hamas, a political party of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, is designated a terrorist organization by the United States and Western countries for carrying out bombings, conducting kidnappings and carrying out other attacks in Israel.

Mousa Mohammed Abu Marzook is the deputy chief of Hamas’s political wing.

The article said that the indictment, handed up in Chicago, included the deputy chief of Hamas’s political wing, Mousa Mohammed Abu Marzook, and a former Howard University professor, Abelhaleem Hasan Abdelraziq Ashqar of Fairfax County. Ashqar, 46, and a third defendant, Muhammad Hamid Khalil Salah, 51, of suburban Chicago, were arrested. Marzook, who was expelled from the United States in 1997, is believed to be living in Syria.

The article on The Washington Post explained that Attorney General John D. Ashcroft said at a Washington D.C. news conference the following: “The individuals named in this indictment are alleged to have played a substantial role in financing and supporting international terrorism. They are alleged to be material supporters of a foreign terrorist organization, taking advantage of the freedoms of an open society to foster and finance acts of terror.” Much of the activity outlined in the indictment happened before President Bill Clinton designated Hamas as a foreign terrorist group in 1995. The three defendants have been the focus of FBI intelligence and criminal investigations for at least a decade.

Ashqar appeared in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia where U.S. Magistrate Judge Theresa C. Buchanan ordered him imprisoned without bond until federal marshals can take him to Chicago. Assistant U.S. Attorney David Laufman described Ashqar as dangerous and said he might flee. Ashqar received his doctorate from the University of Mississippi in 1997 and has lived in Northern Virginia for seven years. Howard University declined to renew Ashqar’s contract in 2003.

Jeffrey Goldberg, in his 2008 book Prisoners: A Story of Friendship and Terror, describes Dar Al-Hijrah as an openly political mosque that has conducted militant Friday sermons, especially prior to the September 11, 2011 terror attacks. The Washington Post reported that its leaders have strongly criticized U.S. law enforcement actions against Muslims and U.S. policies in the Middle East. The Washington Post also reported that the mosque is closely affiliated with the Muslim American Society, which has been linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Clarion Project wrote an article that explained that Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center has been “affiliated” with the Muslim American Society since 1999, which it described as an “Islamic reform movement.” The mosque’s constitution requires it to be affiliated with the Muslim American Society, the North American Islamic Trust and the Islamic Society of North America.

The article said that a 2002 Customs and Border Protection document states that “Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center is operating as a front for Hamas operatives in the United States.” A December 2007 document says it “has been linked to numerous individuals linked to terrorism financing” and “has also been associated with encouraging fraudulent marriages.” In 2010, Dave Gaubatz, a former Special Agent with the U.S. Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations, referred to Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center as “Wahhabi quarter” and said he found “very, very violent materials” in its library that promoted physical jihad and sedition.

In the fall of 2013, radical Islamic texts were discovered in Dar al-Hijrah’s book sale, including one by Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi. The texts taught that Muslims are to wage violent jihad in order to resurrect the Caliphate, destroy Israel, and implement Shariah law governance.

Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi supports the terror organizations Hamas, the Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah. One of his books for sale at Dar al-Hijrah.

Ismail Elbarasse was an assistant to senior Hamas official Mousa Abu Marzook.

The Clarion Project article pointed out that one of the founders of Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center was Ismail Elbarasse. He was an assistant to a senior Hamas official named Mousa Abu Marzook. He was later found to be a part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s secret Palestine Committee that was set up to advance the agenda of Hamas. The FBI discovered U.S. Muslim Brotherhood archives when it searched his house in 2004.

The Clarion Project said that the current Imam, Shaker Elsayed, has served as a Secretary-General of the MAS. In 2004, he said that the teachings of Hassan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, are the “closest reflection of how Islam should be in this life.” In 2001, Elsayed did not condemn Hamas’ attacks on Israeli civilians, saying that they were legitimate military targets and occupiers.


Hassan al-Banna founded the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

The article explained the following: “In 2002 Elsayed stated that suicide bombers are unfairly named and the Islamic scholars said if there is an attack on the land of Islam or they occupy the land of Islam, or the honor of the Muslims has been violated, the Jihad is a must on every man, every child and every woman. They have to make Jihad with every tool that they can get in their hand. Anything that they can get in their hand they should fight with it. And if they don’t have a weapon in their hands, then they will fight unarmed.”

As explained earlier, Mohammed Adam El-Sheikh, who served as Imam from 2003 to 2005, stated in 2004 that Palestinian suicide bombings are justified because “the Palestinians cannot defend themselves, except through these kind of means, and their local religious leaders issued fatwas to permit that, then it becomes acceptable as an exceptional rule, but should not be taken as a principle.” El-Sheikh is a founder of the MAS and was a member of the Sudanese Muslim Brotherhood from 1973 to 1977.

The Clarion Project article explained that Mohammed Adam El-Sheikh used to be the regional director of the Islamic American Relief Agency, which was labeled by the Treasury Department as a “specially designated terrorist organization because of its links to Osama Bin Laden and Hamas.” In September 2014, El-Sheikh signed a letter opposing the tactics of brutal Islamic State, but endorsed Shariah law governance’s brutal “hudud punishments (hudud is an Islamic concept of punishments which under Islamic Shariah law are mandated and fixed by Allah, based on the Quran and Sunnah), the recreation of a caliphate and the Islamist doctrine of gradualism.

Mohammed al-Hanooti, who served as Imam from 1995 to 1999 said in a 1998 sermon at the mosque the following: “Allah would curse the United States and the United Kingdom, the tyrannies, and the Jews for airstrikes on Iraq. We have to do everything we can to help the Iraqi people against tyrannies … we all have to be ready for the jihad with our properties and our souls.”

Mohammed al-Hanooti was president of the Islamic Association for Palestine from 1984 to 1986. It was a pro-Hamas organization and Muslim Brotherhood front. Al-Hanooti also attended a secret meeting of U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas members and supporters in Philadelphia in 1993.

The Clarion Project article pointed out a 1988 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood document lists al-Hanooti as the head of one of its committees. A 2001 FBI memo states that informants reported that he is a “big supporter” of Hamas and was “purportedly holding fund-raising activities, as well as supporting visitors to the United States from Israel and Jordan, to speak on behalf of Hamas.” Another FBI informant reported in 1993 that “Al-Hanooti collected over six million U.S. dollars for support of Hamas in Israel.”

The article indicated that Dr. Esam Omeish, a former member of Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center’s board of directors, was president of the MAS from 2004 to 2008. In 2000, he was videotaped praising Palestinians that believe “the jihad way is the way to liberate your land.” In 2004, he praised the spiritual leader of Hamas as “our beloved Sheikh Ahmed Yassin.” That year, he also complained to the Washington Post about its negative depiction of the Muslim Brotherhood, saying that its “moderate” beliefs were “instrumental” in influencing the MAS.

Dr. Omeish claimed that the MAS has no current ties with the Brotherhood and lying said that, “the Brotherhood does not exist as far as we know in the United States.” In the same statement, he said that “we still view them as a good ally.” In 2010, he “liked” the Facebook page of Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradawi, the Hamas-supporting spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. In September 2012, he attended a reception for Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, who was elected president of Egypt as the Muslim Brotherhood’s official candidate.


Multiple terrorists have come from the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center and all of their Imams have supported and served as leaders of various Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations. The United States needs to shut down this terror-connected mosque at once due to its long history of supporting terror groups and the many terrorists who have worship at this Islamic radical mosque. Similar to France and possibly Belgium, the United States needs to close any mosque whose Imams preach violence, justify jihad and Shariah law, support terror groups, and is associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.

A good place to start is to examine the 83 radical mosques in America identified by the Clarion Project. The sooner the Obama administration realizes that we are at war not with Islam but radical Islam the better. President Barack Obama has failed in identified our enemy who has been at war with America and Western countries for decades. It is a war America must lead and win. Hopefully, a Republican president elected in 2016 will restore our nation greatness and undo the enormous damage to our national security done by the current occupant in the White House.
