Obama’s Refugee Guest Is Safe – So They All Must Be

by: the Common Constitutionalist

USA Today wrote on Sunday that “President Obama is taking a dramatic step to show he opposes Republican efforts to slow or halt the admission of refugees over terrorist concerns: He has invited a Syrian refugee to attend his State of the Union Address.” Is the refugee going to be seated next to the empty “Gun Violence” chair?

Anyway – it’s hardly a dramatic step. As I reminded people on Monday , Obama had an illegal immigrant child sitting with Michelle during last year’s dog and pony show. So this is just the guilt-trip du jour.

And this invited refugee is hardly emblematic or remotely representative of the others he wants to bring here. The invitee is a 55 year old scientist from Syria who’s been living in Detroit for the past month. He claims “his family home was destroyed by a bomb, killing his wife, daughter and five other relatives.” Was it one he made? Sorry – I couldn’t resist.

I guess he is now all alone.

So I found it odd when the refugee scientist Refaai Hamo said, “I was thrilled when I heard that President Barack Obama is welcoming us into the United States.” Us? Who’s us? I thought his family was killed? The report neglected to explain this apparent disparity. They also neglect to reveal what kind of scientist he is. read more

Obama to America: We Don’t Need No Stinking Vetting

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Well, my man Ted Cruz, who has now vaulted past Marco Rubio into third place in the latest Fox News poll, has echoed the thoughts of many of us right thinking Americans. He said in response to Obama’s continued want to bring jihadists, I mean refugees, to the U.S.: “I have to say particularly in light of what happened in Paris, that’s nothing short of lunacy.”

But not so fast Ted. Didn’t you hear – all these thousands of jihadists, I mean refugees, will be fully vetted.

But really – what’s a vetting? Nadal Hassan, the Fort Hood shooter, was a major in the Army. Who among us has gone through more thorough vetting than those in the military? Yet Hassan somehow escaped the scrutiny of military vetting. Some (me) would say purposely, all in the name of political correctness, which, as it did, always ends in disaster.

That being said, who believes the vetting procedure of these Syrian refugees will be more stringent than that of Hassan?

How well was Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez vetted? Remember him – the illegal alien monster who gunned down Kate Steinle in cold blood, in broad daylight, in front of her father. He was deported 5 times and had used 30 aliases. I guess the vetting process really broke down in his case.

The fact is, we don’t vet illegals. We can’t vet illegals. What kind of electronic, “biometric” trail will you find on some destitute itinerant farm hand from nowhere Guatemala? Of course – not a single thing. And the same will go for most of the “refugees” from Syria. We are to take the word of the refugee and the U.N. read more

A Jihadist Storm May Be Blowing Our Way

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Surprise, surprise. MoveOn.org has begun another campaign that could potentially damage our country. Pretty much everything they do is damaging in one way or another, but this damage could have disastrous consequences.

In a blast email I received, they begin with the following:

“Here’s the situation: Millions of families have fled terrorism and their government’s bombs, only to face the impossible choice between trying to survive the winter in tents in refugee camps, or making the often lethal trip to Europe. At present, the United States only plans to welcome 10,000 Syrian refugees next year.”

So what do they want of the useful idiots who believe in the MoveOn movement? Well, as usual, they want money. But they also want the useful idiots to contact their Senators and ask (more like demand – we know the left never asks for anything) that they co-sponsor Bill 2145, “the Middle East Refugee Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act.”

The Act would provide an extra $1 billion in emergency money to “allow funding for the resettlement of up to 100,000 refugees over two years.”  read more
