One of the aspects of critical thinking that is very important is being able to connect seemingly unrelated events and take a holistic view of the information around you.

After President Trump decided to take out Iranian General Soleimani, the media was full of fear and concern about Iran’s retaliation. Many Democrat opponents expressed worry about Iran activating sleeper cells.

New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez was one such Democrat who warned against the activation of sleeper cells.

Senator Menendez has voted in favor of sanctuary cities housing illegal immigrants and criticized President Trump for categorizing illegal immigrants with DUIs as criminals.

Has Senator Menendez ever wondered how those sleeper cells he’s concerned about got here in the first place?

His concern about sleeper cell activation undercuts any desire he has to let immigrants remain in the United States illegally.
