Andrew C. McCarthy is the former federal prosecutor who convicted the notorious “Blind Sheikh” and other jihadists for waging a terrorist war that included the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. In his national bestseller, Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad (Encounter 2008), he explored government’s conscious avoidance of the terrorist threat, which made the nation vulnerable to mass-murder attacks. In The Grand Jihad, he exposes a more insidious peril: government’s active concealment of the Islamist ideology that unabashedly vows to “conquer America.” With the help of witting and unwitting accomplices in and out of government, Islamism doesn’t merely fuel terrorism but spawns America-hating Islamic enclaves in our midst and gradually foists Islam’s repressive law, sharia, on American life. The revolutionary doctrine has made common cause with an ascendant Left that also seeks radical transformation of our constitutional order. The prognosis for liberty could not be more dire.
In this episode of Dangerous Thinkers, he discusses the mysterious case of discredited chair of the Democrat National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the shadowy IT guy that she fired, but only after he was arrested at Dulles Airport. Why did authorities allow his wife to flee the U.S. and return to Pakistan with over $12,000 in cash?
- Sometimes prosecutors do things that don’t make sense, as in the Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her Pakistani IT friend, for a reason, but sometimes it’s just incompetence
- Sharia Supremacism is part of Islam, and our leaders may not understand that as well as they need to, which could make us less safe
- Muller’s Special Counsel investigation can have very negative implications for the Trump Administration even if no wrong doing is discovered
