From Mia Davis…
I know Obama came into office claiming to be a Christian but he has officially blown his cover with his most recent hostile remarks toward Christians. He claims to have compassion and concern but it’s clearly limited to the well being of the Syrian refugees and Muslims. He is showing no compassion for the people who are concerned about the security of our country and no compassion for the Christian faith. Americans just want to know the president’s priority is to protect our country and show compassion for the people of our country as well as for others. The director of the FBI (James Comey) warned that they can not effectively vet the refugees to screen out terrorists and ISIS already announced they plan to infiltrate America through the refugees immigrating here. Yet when these concerns are raised people are accused of lacking compassion? We are not serving the people of this country or the refugees by giving ISIS an open door. I pray for Obama and all the leaders to have wisdom and discernment in these crazy times. At this point Obama appears to be anti-Christian. But don’t take my word for it, read this Time magazine article to see his remarks.
…Barack Obama began the first Wednesday after the attacks in the same way he began the first Monday, with a verbal assault on Republicans at a press conference on foreign soil. “We are not well served when in response to a terrorist attack we descend into fear and panic,” he said at a press conference in the Philippines. “We don’t make good decisions if it’s based on hysteria or an exaggeration of risks. The refugee debate is an example of us not being well served by some of the commentary taking place by officials back home and in the media.”
Then his comments became even more pointed. He accused Republicans of aiding in Islamic State recruitment by suggesting that there be a religious test for refugees that would give preference to Christians. “I cannot think of a more potent recruitment tool for ISIL than some of the rhetoric coming out of here in the course of this debate,” he said, using an acronym for the Islamic State. “It’s counterproductive and it needs to stop.”
The Obama administration is fighting a growing national backlash against accepting Syrian refugees, saying the government’s exhaustive screening process and security checks for new arrivals mean they can be safely brought to American soil.
Several high-level administration officials have warned in recent months just how challenging this can be. While they say U.S. security measures are much better than in the past, vetting Syrian refugees poses a quandary: How do you screen people from a war-torn country that has few criminal and terrorist databases to check?
Governors across the country are scrambling to close off their states to resettled Syrian refugees in the wake of the deadly terror attacks in Paris that are linked to Islamic State extremists.
The list of states climbed quickly to 23 by Monday evening, after President Obama said that the U.S. would continue to accept refugees and denounced efforts to stop those fleeing violence from coming to the United States as “shameful.”
Governors of Illinois, Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Maine, Iowa, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Arizona, Indiana, Massachusetts, Idaho, Louisiana, Michigan, Alabama, Texas, Kansas, Georgia, Mississippi, and Arkansas — a majority of them Republican — have said that they are seeking to stop the relocation of new Syrian refugees to their states out of fear that violent extremists posing as refugees might gain entry to the country.
Buddhist monks formerly of Tibet from Drepung Monastery’s Gomang College will visit Dickinson College for a five-day residency beginning Tuesday.
The residency serves as part of the monks’ Sacred Arts tour of the United States, which gives spectators the chance to experience various Tibetan cultural traditions.
During their time on campus, the monks will construct a mandala (a spiritual symbol representing the universe) out of colored sand; perform a puja, a spiritual showcase of prayer and ritual; and perform a cultural program with traditional Tibetan dances and chants. Additionally, the monks will have the opportunity to interact with Dickinson students and staff in classrooms and in the dining hall.
“The monks are traveling the country for one year sharing their culture and offering prayers,” said Clarke Forum Program Manager Jolie Rankin. “It should be a really interesting experience.”
With all this Muslim terrorism plaguing the world, perhaps it is time to take a look at a country not suffering the same fate and analyze exactly why that is…
…Muslim terrorists can be proud: their share in world terrorist attacks is now close to 100%.
What Japan did to avoid problems related to Muslims was much simpler and cheaper; Japan is practically closed to Muslims.
Officially, immigration to Japan is not closed to Muslims. But the number of the immigration permits given to the applicants from Islamic countries is very low. Obtaining a working visa is not easy for adepts of Islam, even if they are physicians, engineers and managers sent by foreign companies that are active in the region. As a result, Japan is “a country without Muslims”.
This may come as a shock to many people, but representation in Congress is based on total population, not on the number of citizens.
An influx of illegal immigrants changes the political map dramatically.
That is why “they” do not care if they are “legal” are not. Just bring them in.
Even if illegal immigrants cannot actually vote, they as a group, generally flood the already Democratic utopias (large U.S. cities) that already vote 80% + Democratic.
This gives those places more electoral college votes even if there are not more citizens.
This also gives those places more members of the House of Representatives (also taking those members away from other smaller (usually more conservative) states & towns.
This is the “fair” system that is being used against us.
Not enforcing the deportation of illegal foreigners has rigged the electoral college.
Founding fathers never thought laws would be cherry-picked to be or not be enforced.
This is why when you look at a voting patterns map of the United States county by county over the last two decades you see islands of blue surrounded by oceans of red.
