Could Terrorists Strike America From South of the Border? (Author Interview: Scott McEwen)

by Bradley Matthews

Scott McEwen Ghost Sniper

Congratulations Scott on your new book Ghost Sniper! Tell us about your new book.

This is the fourth book in the Sniper Elite series, and many recent reviews suggest the best so far! Like the others, this book is about the exploits of an American Patriot (Gil Shannon) who is a retired SEAL Team Six Sniper. The non-stop action in Ghost Sniper begins after a top American official and her entire attache’ are assassinated in broad daylight in Mexico City.  The United States Central Intelligence Agency comes to the realization that something must be done to respond to the drug cartels and corrupt government officials responsible. Gil Shannon and his group of highly trained special operators are called upon to respond in a manner consistent with their military training. You can read the first three chapters at sniperelitebooks.com.

What three takeaways would you like readers to leave with after reading your book?

While this book is fiction based on every-day factual occurrences (“faction”); there are groups of very real men called upon daily to defend this nation’s interests with their lives. Men like Gil Shannon stand ready to defend this country in ways we don’t always see every day. This country must prepare itself for the very real threats just across our southern borders, whether its from narco-terrorism, or classic international terrorist attempts to enter this country with the help of narco-terrorist resources, e.g., tunnels. The Mexican people unfortunately have a very real terrorist organization that live and control many aspects of their government aka “drug lords.” They are victims, just like other nations with terrorists in their midst.

You were the co-author of American Sniper, with Chris Kyle, and have a very successful sniper novel series. Where do you come up with the ideas for your books or what is your inspiration?

The inspiration for my books are the men and women of the United States Military, the SEAL Teams, and those that retire from direct military service, but continue to work for the United States in other ways, i.e. CIA, GRS, DSS services. Many of the stories are modified real life experiences told to me by these men and women.

Can you comment on the most recent sniper shootings of police officers in Dallas, TX? 

My comment is first and foremost that this was a cowardly act against valiant first responders that were there to protect the public. It cannot be tolerated in our society. Beyond that, this was not a “sniper,” it was merely a sick individual that used a gun to perpetrate criminal acts of terror, and he should be tried as such.

What books, authors, or conservative-themed books, influenced your political philosophy and outlook on life? 

I am a huge fan and avid reader of American western writers (McMurtry, L’Amour) and virtually anything in that genre. I am also a big fan of classic conservative writers and figures such as William Buckley, Sir Winston Churchill, Ronald Reagan, and others.  I believe that the United States, and the men and women in her military are exceptional. I also believe that hard men (and women) must be called upon to defend our interests in a very dangerous world. That is what I like to write about in both fiction and non-fiction.

    Blame on -Obama,John Kerry,Clintons,Joe B-Democratic party gone too far free lets Mexico border opening so long for 8 years which didn’t do anything improve the system works so what it hurt the budgets to American’s jobs and owe the trillion of $$$$$ plus it hurts Doctors ,hospital, welfare state and increases more people die of drugs addicts to Americans people who loss loved one. Plus Polices cities and U.S. Security border are frustration and overwhelms high risk . It’s real trouble the matter seriously issues! Let’s hope Republicans must wins in November 2016 ! No more vote on Democrats too much troubles piles up the issues and it out of controls. I think it’s best to put on Mexico border ban temperpary until is solve the issues and making it works to improve the systems and trustworthy.

    This is such a ridiculous question. These people are already here. It makes me furious to know that the democrats are not leaving the borders open just to be nice and because “it’s the right thing to do” as they would have everyone believe. This is about increasing their voting block and eliminating the Republican party and conservatism in America altogether. If Hillary gets the Supreme Court, this will surely happen because every illegal getting “free stuff” will be granted amnesty and full voting rights. They are obviously not going to give up their “free stuff”. This, of course, is leaving every American family at risk. My blood really boils when I realize that the Republicans in Congress have done absolutely nothing to secure our borders either. ISIS is here. People who stick their head in the sand like Obama are ignorant. I wish I could be sure that he was just sticking his head in the sand. I’m not sure that there is not a more sinister reason behind his actions of leaving open borders and bringing Muslims by the thousands into this country. GOD knows his motives and he will pay one day if they are not on the up and up and he has purposely tried to destroy this great nation.
