Obama continues to advocate for Syrian “refugee” resettlement in the U.S. despite the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday in which at least one terrorist posed as a Syrian “refugee”

(Nov. 16, 2015) —  On 29 June 2014, the group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), proclaimed itself to be a worldwide caliphate, with Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi being named its Caliph, and renamed itself  ad-Dawlah al-Islāmiyah (الدولةالإسلامية, “Islamic State.”  The attacks in Paris reflect what happens when radical Islamic terrorists take over a substantial part of a country, just as when Al Qaeda and the Taliban took control of Afghanistan before 9/11 and Al Qaeda attacked the Twin Towers in New York City.

If you put a very large portion of a nation at the disposal of radical Islamic terrorists, major acts of terrorism become inevitable (the downing of a Russian airliner by an ISIS bomb on October 31st that killed 224 people, the suicide bombing in a Shiite militia stronghold in Beirut on November 12th that killed 43 and wounded 239, the murder of 129 and wounding of 354 people in Paris on November 13, and the plan revealed by ISIS terrorists to attack America can be listened to by clicking on the below-listed link, and is intended to create thousands of casualties in the US.

For over 7 ½ years, Obama and the inept Congressional leadership on both sides of the aisle have stubbornly refused to close the wide-open southern border that a tractor trailer could be driven through.  That wide-open southern border has permitted the terrorist group, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), to infiltrate the United States unimpeded. The Obama administration has been aware of that danger for over seven years.

To date, the FBI has foiled 74 ISIS terrorist plots and has warned in Congressional testimony that they are dangerously over-extended and having difficulty trying to keep up with tracking ISIS cells in all 50 states.  FBI Director James Comey explicitly warned Congress in a hearing last month that the U.S. does not have the ability to screen Syrian refugees because data on their background history does not exist to determine if they have terrorist ties—the Obama administration continues to lie to the American people by saying they have been clearing all those young male Muslim Syrian refugees by investigating their backgrounds.  About 2,000 of those Muslim Syrian refugees have already arrived in the U.S. despite warnings from the FBI that it is impossible to vet their backgrounds   Judicial Watch reported that the FBI has nearly 900+ active probes involving potential ISIS operatives inside the United States, and dozens of state law enforcement officials and county sheriffs disclosed that they are concerned about the ISIS threat that is present in the US.

Regardless of the FBI warning, the Obama administration has approved the entry into the United States, for resettlement in cities across the nation, the first of 10,000 Muslim Syrian refugees who have been flooding across Europe; those 10,000 are added to the 70,000 Muslim refugees who have been entering the US through the UN Refugee Resettlement Program each year for over seven years.  Obama administration officials told Reuters this past Friday that they are opening new screening outposts in Iraq and Lebanon and indicated that they intend to admit 250,000 Muslim Syrian refugees.  Obama’s immigration policies over the last 7½ years have developed into a very dangerous terrorist time bomb that can go off at any time.

John Kerry’s State Department confirmed its plans to open a refugee settlement processing center in Erbil, Iraq, before the end of 2015, and to resume refugee processing in Lebanon in early 2016, said spokeswoman Danna Van Brandt.  The White House would not say how many additional refugees it may take in beyond the 10,000 they are currently processing, but two senior administration officials said they are seeking ways to increase the number of Syrian refugees being permitted to enter the US.

Intelligence agencies in France reported that a Syrian refugee, who entered France from Greece, was one of the ISIS terrorists who executed the Paris terrorist attack on November 13th.  Our intelligence contacts at LAX have informed us that daily they are required to process hundreds of Muslim Syrian refugees, that the Muslim Syrian refugees are arriving in ever-increasing numbers at all U.S. international airports, and that the CBP Inspectors are not allowed to ask penetrating questions about their documents and backgrounds. The federal government pays World Relief and agencies like it nearly $2,000 for every foreign refugee they resettle in the U.S.

More than 90 percent of refugees from the Middle East also sign up for food stamps, 61 percent are on Medicaid, and 24 percent live in public housing, according to studies by the Congressional Research Office (it is estimated that each refugee receives government aid of about $1980/month, which exceeds what a American who worked for 50 years receives in Social Security payments). The costs of educating their children far exceed what it costs to educate a native English speaker or even a Spanish speaker.

Two US Senators are working with Obama on an ignorant policy to resettle hundreds of thousands Muslim Syrian refugees in the US, despite the fact that they don’t have documents that would prove they don’t have terrorist ties.  Senator Lindsey Graham and Senator Patrick Leahy introduced The Middle East Refugee Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act in the Senate which provides an extra $1 billion in emergency funding to cover the cost of the resettlement of Syrian refugees throughout the United States. The Congress should be defunding Muslim Syrian refugee resettlement, not funding $1 billion more for Muslim refugees’ resettlement.  Obama’s Muslim Resettlement Program for hundreds of thousands of Muslim Syrians and African Muslim Refugees will prove to be the same type of suicidal policy for Americans that it was Frenchmen in Paris.

According to the FBI, 250 Islamic Americans with US Passports have traveled and trained with ISIS terrorists in large swaths of Iraq and Syria; they have been participating in the genocide of Syrian and Assyrian Christians; and many of those newly-trained American Islamic terrorists have been returning and been allowed to roam free in the US by the Obama administration; upon their return they should have been arrested as ISIS terrorists, charged as terrorist threats to the United States, and their passports should have confiscated upon return to the US from their Middle East killing spree.

A member of ISIS from Canada dropped a major bombshell in an interview that can be listened to by clicking on the below-listed link where he said, “A lot of brothers are mobilizing in New York.” ISIS is actively preparing to launch an attack on the US, which is their primary target. They are telling the American people that ISIS terrorists are poised and ready to pull the trigger on a major attack that promises destruction in America.

The occupant in the Oval Office has stated ISIS is a “JV Team.” However ISIS is far from it—it is the Obama administration that is the JV Team.  Its open borders and refugee resettlement policies are opening the American people to the type of certain death and destruction we witnessed in Beirut, Paris, and on that Russian airliner.  At the same time, the threat to the nation from ISIS, Al Qaeda, Iran, China, and Russia is increasing as they modernize and strengthen their military might, what has the occupant in the Oval Office been doing?

Obama has decreased the size of the US Navy to the number of ships it had before World War I, reduced the size of the US Army to the manning level it had before World War II, reduced the size of the US Air Force to the strength it had before 1947, promulgated new and dangerous Rules of Engagement (ROE) for combat forces that have increased combat casualties over 400%. To top it off, Obama has entered into an agreement with Iran that has facilitated the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism to develop nuclear weapons and the ICBMs to deliver nuclear warheads to the United States and its allies in the Middle East.

Obama is the only occupant of the Oval Office in the 239-year history of the Republic who has proved to be dangerous; he has violated his oath of office to protect the lives of Americans from the imminent threat of terrorism and to protect the national security of the United States.  Believe it or not, Obama has repeatedly stated that the most dangerous national security interest facing the United States is global warming, while ISIS, Al Qaeda, Iran, China, Cuba, Russia, and Venezuela are laughing, and America’s allies are aghast.

On July 30, 2015, Congressman Brian Babin (R-TX) introduced the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act (H.R. 3314) which seeks to suspend Obama’s program to resettle Muslim refugees from the Middle East and Africa.  On November 4th Senator Charles Grassley, R-Iowa introduced a bill in the Senate that would stop all funding for Syrian refugee resettlement in the U.S. until the national security issues are addressed.  We encourage all Americans to contact their Senators and Congressmen and demand that they vote to pass the measure in Congress.  Those two measures would rein in Obama’s suicidal resettlement of Syrian Muslim refugees and the UN Resettlement Program for Muslim refugees whose backgrounds can’t possibly be checked for terrorist ties, because according to the FBI, those refugees have no records at all.

For the last 7½ years, the American people have been witnessing Obama’s suicidal defense, border, and refugee policies, but the American citizens in the Republic are not interested in joining or supporting Obama in his suicidal policies.  It’s time for the Congress to use the power of the purse and file actions in US Federal Court to stop Obama’s violation of Federal Laws and the US Constitution.
