Rep. Pete King Statement on Cops Murdered in Baton Rouge

More cops murdered and wounded. This time in Baton Rouge. When will it end? When will the slanders against cops end? When will more people realize that the men and women of law enforcement put their lives on the line every day to protect us -- that they save more innocent lives every day than any of their critics? I am proud to stand with our nation's police and call upon all our government and political leaders to do the same -- unless, of course, they have the guts to walk in a cop's shoes!! RIP

With all of the partisan political struggles that get media attention every day, it is important to remember that America and the world face constant critical and possibly existential threats.

Even more than Islamist terrorism, there is the severe threat of cyber attacks from Russia, Iran, China and international criminal enterprises. At the annual "Worldwide Threats" hearing, the leaders of America's Intelligence Community emphasized the necessity of protecting our critical defense, intelligence and industrial critical infrastructure from governmental and non-state hackers. As we saw in the 2016 elections there are the propaganda and surreptitious attacks on our democratic process.

Of course threats from a nuclear armed North Korea, a potential nuclear armed Iran, an expansion China and a resurgent Russia remain as do the ever deadly Islamist terrorist threats from ISIS, Al Qaeda and their offshoots and splinter groups.

We must face the reality that we live in an extremely dangerous world which is why it is vital that the Trump Administration continue to rebuild our military and we make sure that our intelligence agencies receive all the funding and all the moral support they need and deserve to protect Americans at home and American interests around the world. God Bless America!!
