James Horn: Keeping America Safe

By Debra Tash

On Thursday evening James E. Horn addressed the Thousand Oaks Republican Women, Federated.  As a navy veteran, and retired diplomatic officer, Mr. Horn addressed the gathering at the North Ranch Country Club from his 40 years as a specialist in embassy security.  He served in some dangerous neighborhoods, such as Bangladesh, Algiers, and came to an understanding of many of the more troubling tenets of Islam.  He sees that there are deep Human Rights violations woven into the fabric of what the Bush Administration coined as “the Religion of Peace”, especially when it comes to women and non-Muslims.

He gave examples of what he once did. While serving in Bahrain, Mr. Horn had to secure the embassy from truck attacks.  It was housed in an historic sandstone structure.  The local authorities proved difficult and refused any alteration to the building, so Mr. Horn improvised with “flower pots.”  They were placed around the exterior of the building and reinforced with steel and concrete.  The structures were so effective buildings in Washington DC are now protected with them, including the Supreme Court.

As to Islam, Mr. Horn cautioned the audience that it is spreading throughout the United States, embedded now in our schools and other institutions.  He asserted that Islam organizations are involved in the drug trade and as an example, the money is laundered in Anaheim.  He sees it as conquest by immigration and warns that we better wake up.

He is the author of three books, two of which deal with Islam.  You can find his author’s page at James E. Horn on Amazon.com

Also present were two Republican candidates who were there as guests of members.

Ronda Baldwin-Kennedy 

First to speak was Ronda Baldwin-Kennedy, a local attorney who had just filed that day to run against incumbent Assemblywoman Jacqui Irwin (D-Camarillo) in the 44th District.  That state assembly district stretches from Oxnard through Camarillo, Thousand Oaks to Moorpark. She laid out very specific goals, beginning with the repeal of the gas tax, which hurts all strata of Californians.  She also would work to repeal SB 54 which made California a sanctuary state and which Irwin voted for when it was a bill.  Ms. Baldwin-Kennedy pointed out, as a woman of color, that the Democrats have been on the wrong side of history beginning with the civil war and through the tumultuous civil rights era.

Antonio Sabato

The second candidate was Antonio Sabato, who has been getting a lot of press, including national endorsements in his run against incumbent, Julia Brownley.  Ms. Brownley, represents the 26th District in the House of Representatives. She has been scored at 3% by the conservative Heritage Foundation.  Mr. Sabato spoke about the hypocrites in Hollywood and how he had been blacklisted after speaking for candidate Donald Trump.  Then, for some reason, he held Ms. Brownley responsible for Prop. 47, (2014) reduction in some felonies to misdemeanors and Prop 57 (2016), the early release of certain inmates, which voters passed.  And though the congresswoman serve in the Assembly, these two ballot measures passed a few years after Brownley ran and won her congressional seat in 2012.  AB 109, Prison Realignment to comply with a court ruling that California reduce its inmate population, the basis for 47 and 57, was passed in 2011 when   Brownley was serving in the state legislature.  The bill was introduced by the Committee on Budget (Blumenfield (Chair), Alejo, Allen, Brownley, Buchanan, Butler, Cedillo, Chesbro, Dickinson, Feuer, Gordon, Huffman, Mitchell, Monning, and Swanson.  So in that, after a stretch, you can hold Brownley responsible.
