Larry Kudlow on Homeland Security
Moratorium on Syrian refugees must be in place
Very few people are talking about destroying ISIS. Some in the Republican Party and on the campaign trail are saying it, but they're not saying it enough. Not repeatedly. Not so as to boost the morale of the country.
We are at war. Our homeland is in
danger. Yes, the moratorium on Syrian refugees must be in place. That's easy. But what's not easy is coming up with a coherent plan for destroying ISIS and telling America, "We can do this." That is leadership.
It's a week after the horrific Paris
terror attacks, but basically the US has changed nothing. While we wait, ISIS is expanding its franchises in Egypt, North Africa and Nigeria. How can this be?
Why hasn't the president called for an emergency meeting of NATO where we would join brave French President Francois Hollande on declaring war with ISIS? Why haven't we done this? If the president won't, then Congress should.

Program of economic growth & strong national defense
A lot of clear-headed Republicans have a strong dislike for identity-group politics. Me too. Instead, I prefer a program of economic growth, strong national defense, deregulation, low flat-tax-rate reform, free trade,
and sound money to unleash American prosperity and bolster national security. If this positive message is sold--to everyone and all groups--it will work politically.
