US Defense Watch

Hillary Clinton and her fellow Democrats think that half of America consists of a basket of Deplorables; which includes gun owners, Christians, libertarians, veterans, rural America and those souls on the ‘Alt Right’ who believe in inalienable rights and the pursuit of happiness.
In actuality, the real basket of Deplorables is the myriad of horrendous facts which confirm that the last seven years of the Obama administration have been an absolute and unmitigated disaster domestically and internationally.
Without further ado, the Real Deplorables:
Family Security Matters
In a Sept. 21 memo to his department heads, President Obama instructed all federal departments and agencies to consider the impact of climate change on national security.
Obama states that it is the policy of the U.S. government to ensure that current and anticipated impacts of climate change be “identified and considered” in developing national security doctrine, policies and plans.
“Climate change poses a significant and growing threat to national security, both at home and abroad,” the memo says. Those threats, according to Obama, include flooding, drought, heat waves, intense precipitation, pest outbreaks, disease, and electricity problems, all of which can “affect economic prosperity, public health and safety, and international stability.”
Obama also says those anticipated climate change issues could adversely affect military readiness; negatively affect military facilities and training; increase demands for federal support to civil defense authorities,; and increase the need to maintain international stability and provide humanitarian assistance needs.

An internal Obama administration email shows immigration officials may be literally working overtime to swear in as many new “citizen voters” as possible before the Nov. 8 presidential election, a powerful lawmaker charged Thursday.
The email, from a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services field office chief and part of a chain of correspondence within the agency, urges the unnamed recipient to swear in as many citizens as possible “due to the election year.”
“The Field Office due to the election year needs to process as many of their N-400 cases as possible between now and FY 2016,” reads the email, which was disclosed to FoxNews.com by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., who chairs the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE
We now know that two foreign nationals who received refuge in this country – one from Somalia, the other from Afghanistan – are implicated in the jihadist attacks that took place over the weekend in Minnesota, New York and New Jersey.
One might be forgiven for thinking that these timely reminders of the dangers associated with reckless refugee resettlement and immigration policies would induce President Obama to refrain from exacerbating our resulting, parlous position.
That would, of course, require him to put national security and public safety ahead of his ideologically driven desire for a legacy that fundamentally transforms America. So, as they say in New York, fugged about it.
We need a national course-correction. If Congress foolishly funds the President’s proposal to import potentially hundreds of thousands more jihadists, Americans will have to seize upon the opportunity to reject it at the polls in November.
