Family Security Matters

The lies from this administration are well-known and numerous. Among only some of the most infamous: If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. ISIS is a non-threat, the “JV team.” The economy is in great shape after years of sustained recovery, and unemployment is at a de minimis 5%. Daily life over the past seven and a half years and the six o’clock news will relieve you of these fictions.
The Barack Hussein Obama administration’s deceit is deployed deliberately to assuage our deepest fears concerning the state of our country and the world. The administration’s disinformation campaign will continue at least until the election, meaning that the citizens have seven more months of utter falsehoods whose origin is their own White House.
In recent days, another three lies have made the headlines on television and other media outlets:
No one knows where the refugees are being resettled nor does anyone know who they are or how many of them there are. Governors, even Democrat governors can’t get the information. Non-profit resettlement contractors and staff from the State Department divide up the new arrivals and have sole control over their destinations.
The American people have nothing to say about who comes into the country. The leftist Church World Service is a federal refugee resettlement contractor that receives $45 million dollars each year to bring the people in, including illegal aliens, and then hide them from the government. They recently came out to say that they would hide those ordered for deportation even though they are dangerous or a threat to national security.
They are breaking the law but they do so with the blessings of the administration.They are the Sanctuary Movement which helps bring in democratic voters and they are paid well to do it.
“This is precisely why I called for a halt to refugees entering the U.S. from countries substantially controlled by terrorists. I once again urge the President to halt the resettlement of these refugees in the United States until there is an effective vetting process that will ensure refugees do not compromise the safety of Americans and Texans.” Abbott is absolutely right.
“Terror arrests reported in Sacramento, Houston and Milwaukee,” by Denny Walsh and Sam Stanton, Sacramento Bee, January 7, 2016:
Federal agents have arrested a terror suspect in Sacramento, along with two others in Houston and Milwaukee in a case involving allegations that U.S. residents were in contact with and trying to provide assistance to Islamic State supporters, sources say.
No announcements were made regarding the arrests, but an unusual closed hearing was conducted Thursday afternoon in federal court in Sacramento with U.S. Magistrate Judge Edmund F. Brennan presiding behind closed doors.
No information regarding the hearing was posted on the court calendar or filed in publicly available court documents, and Sacramento FBI spokeswoman Gina Swankie said she could not discuss the matter.
“I can neither confirm nor deny any of the information in your email,” Swankie said in response to a request from The Sacramento Bee.
Federal prosecutors in Sacramento also declined to comment.
The Houston Chronicle reported that officials in that state had been briefed on the matter and that the Houston connection involved an Iraqi refugee living in the Texas city. The newspaper also said Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issued a statement Thursday afternoon on the matter.
“This is precisely why I called for a halt to refugees entering the U.S. from countries substantially controlled by terrorists,” Abbott said in a statement. “I once again urge the President to halt the resettlement of these refugees in the United States until there is an effective vetting process that will ensure refugees do not compromise the safety of Americans and Texans.”
California Gov. Jerry Brown’s office declined to comment on whether officials in California had been briefed and referred inquiries to the FBI….

With the Syrian (so-called) refugee crisis ubiquitous in the headlines, the media has found itself dealing with immigration issues on a daily basis. Unfortunately, extreme confusion abounds. The media’s total inability to draw basic distinctions regarding immigration to the United States, both legal and illegal is harming the public’s ability to digest this important topic. Immigration terms are being thrown around print media, radio, and television that have no relation to the real facts or existing laws.
The following is the dummy’s guide to some of the most important distinctions regarding legal and illegal immigration to the United States. It is sincerely hoped that this will help to end the erroneous reasons and multitude of excuses offered by the media on a daily, almost hourly, basis.
Socialism is not the Answer
My question goes out to Barack Soetoro aka Barack Obama.
If you have ISIS contained, why do refugees have to come here?
Just how obvious can Obama get away with making it that he does not mean this country well? On infodump Friday, State Department spokescretin Jen Psaki proclaimed:
“The United States has admitted 524 Syrians since 2011. We’re likely to admit 1,000 to 2,000 Syrian refugees for permanent resettlement in Fiscal Year 2015 and a somewhat higher number, though still in the low thousands, in Fiscal Year 2016.”
From about 100 per to thousands per year. Quite an increase. If insufficient resistance is encountered, the numbers will rise:
[Assistant Secretary of State Anne] Richard said the United States was already reviewing around 9,000 Syrian refugee cases referred by a United Nations agency and was receiving “roughly a thousand new ones each month.”
Something else recently exploded out of Syria, other than welfare colonists. Let’s see, what was it…
Oh yes — ISIS:
A senior FBI official has admitted the United States is finding it virtually impossible to screen out terrorists that could be hiding among the thousands of Syrian “refugees” heading soon to American cities.
The U.S. simply does not have the resources to stop Islamic radicals in Syria from slipping into the country through the State Department’s refugee-resettlement program, said Michael Steinbach, deputy assistant director of the FBI’s counter terrorism unit.
Separating legitimate refugees from terrorists was difficult enough in Iraq, where the U.S. had a large occupation force. Even then, the U.S. government’s vetting process missed “dozens” of Iraqi jihadists who slipped into the country posing as refugees and took up residence in Kentucky, according to a November 2013 ABC News report.
We have no presence in the failed state Syria, so we have no idea who these people are. But it won’t be long before we start finding out.

Sure seems we’ve come to a point where the rule of law means little to the Obama administration – or the oath taken to faithfully execute our laws.
With that in mind, Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the United States Constitution, at times referred to as the War Powers Clause, vests in the Congress the power to declare war, in the following wording: “[The Congress shall have Power…] To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water.”
I searched Article II to see if there was anything to contradict these enumerated powers bestowed upon the U.S. Congress – and found nothing. Now, I can immediately draw your attention to President Obama’s ill-conceived venture into Libya – which we have addressed several times, most recently here discussing the involvement of ISIS there – and where was the “humanitarian crisis? I could also alert you to the fact that we are deploying troops back into Iraq, but there has been no declaration from Congress on war – and we are dropping bombs and folks are shooting – a basic definition of war, as far as I know.
