Congressman Pete King Meets With Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke

David Clarke, the Sheriff of Milwaukee County, is a truly outstanding leader. Sheriff Clarke has spent his entire career in law enforcement and is a strong, no nonsense guy who has no problem standing up to special interests and their allies in the liberal media. This is particularly true when Sheriff Clarke speaks out against Black Lives Matter and exposes their hypocrisy. I have met and spoken with Sheriff Clarke a number of times and it is inspiring to be with a true leader who is able to so articulately defend our nation's police. No one does more to save black lives, white lives and all lives more than the men and women in blue and Sheriff Clarke has the guts to say it. I am proud to call Sheriff Clarke my friend and ally.

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!!
