CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS – DHS: Tracking ‘missing’ refugee violates ‘constitutional rights’


A Syrian refugee recently resettled in Louisiana has gone missing, and state officials were surprised to find out that federal Homeland Security agents do not track the whereabouts of foreign refugees out of respect for their “constitutional rights.”

The refugee was resettled in the Baton Rouge area in June by Catholic Charities, a subcontractor that resettles thousands of refugees in the U.S. every year for the federal government and United Nations. The Catholic group, along with others with Lutheran, Episcopal, evangelical and Jewish affiliations, gets paid by the head with taxpayer money for every refugee they bring to the U.S.

But when this particular Syrian refugee turned up missing about a week ago, the Louisiana State Police confirmed he was headed to Washington, D.C., to unite with family, WBRZ TV in Baton Rouge reported.

Once in Washington, the refugee was apparently supposed to “check in” with authorities there, according to state officials. But he never did.

There is nothing illegal about this because the State Department, which oversees the program, does not require any sort of monitoring or tracking of refugees.

Sen. David Vitter, R-LA, who wants to defund the refugee program, told the Hayride he spoke with the Department of Homeland Security Nov. 19 and they confirmed to him that they do not, in fact, know where the refugee is. This admission came despite a report two days earlier by WBRZ that the missing refugee was merely a “rumor.”

Homeland Security said the refugee could not be “kept up with” because of his constitutional rights, a spokesman for Vitter told the Hayride.

Vitter said security is being sacrificed on the altar of political correctness.

“This is political correctness gone insane – wildly dangerous policy,” said Vitter in a statement to the Hayride. “Thank you Barack Obama and John Bel Edwards.”

FBI Director James Comey has warned in congressional hearings that his agency has no ability to screen refugees from Syria before they get here, because Syria is a failed state with no reliable law enforcement data.

‘Accommodating the Syrians’

Edwards, who is running as the Democratic opponent to Vitter in the state’s gubernatorial election this Saturday, originally said via Facebook he would work with the Obama administration in “accommodating” Syrian refugees in the state, although he later backtracked and said he would be in favor of a temporary “pause” in the refugee resettlements.

“They aren’t tracking where any of the refugees go,” refugee watchdog Ann Corcoran told WND. “That’s one of the first things I learned when I started following this nine years ago. They told me, ‘This is America, and they can up and move wherever they want,’ but they might not get all their welfare goodies, their startup money at least.”

Each refugee receives startup cash of approximately $1,100 to get settled in housing, and this money could be left on the table if they move before receiving it and don’t check in at their new location, Corcoran said.

“But I do think there is something very suspicious about this case, especially when ISIS has said earlier in the week that they’re targeting the D.C. area,” she said.

Health issues also a concern

And the problems of refugees gone AWOL extend beyond the risks to national security.

Corcoran, who authors the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog, said another problem has to do with health concerns.

“Some of the refugees have to start on certain medical treatments for, say tuberculosis, and there’s no way to tell if they are continuing their medical regime when they leave and don’t check in at their new home,” she said.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is one of 32 governors who have said they don’t want Syrian refugees while nearly 100 mayors of cities across the U.S. have told Obama in a letter they want more of them to be sent to their cities.

Despite a majority of Americans opposing the Syrian refugee program (53 percent), President Obama has made the policy a priority and derided his opponents as “fear mongers” who are against helping widows and orphans. He said it was “shameful” that conservatives would place a “religious test” on the refugees and accept only Christians from Syria and Iraq. This despite the fact that Obama appears to have a religious test of his own – accepting almost exclusively Muslims from Syria – more than 97 percent. Of the nearly 2,200 Syrians taken by the U.S. so far, only 53 have been Christians, who are the most savagely persecuted minority in the Middle East according to independent trackers like Open Doors and 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative.

This is not the first time authorities have wanted to know the location of a potentially dangerous Muslim refugee.

There was a case in 2007 in which the FBI was looking for several Iraqis resettled in Tennessee.

“And the authorities, our FBI, wanted the resettlement agency to tell them where the Iraqis were and the agency – Church World Service – not only refused but filed a lawsuit along with ACLU and CAIR blocking the FBI from finding out the location of these Iraqis,” Corcoran said. “The contractor told the government they didn’t want to reveal the location, refusing to give information to the point of filing a lawsuit.”

It appears that Muslim refugees have the same rights as Americans on day one of their arrival in the U.S., even if they are arriving from a jihadist stronghold like Syria.

“This happens all the time,” Corcoran said. “Here’s what the contractors will tell you: ‘In America we can move about, you can pick up and move, and so can a refugee. This is America, we let people move, without notifying the authorities.'”


Obamacare Leaves Hundreds Of Cancer Patients Without Insurance

Yay Obamacare! Isn’t it great to have full coverage?

Via NY Post:

Some 250 patients receiving treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center are facing a crisis because they signed up with the only ObamaCare insurer in New York that provides coverage at the world-renowned hospital — and the insurer is going bust.

Now the patients either have to find new insurers and doctors or pay higher out-of-pocket costs for extended care at Sloan.

State regulators are removing Health Republic Insurance of New York from the ObamaCare exchange as of Nov. 30 because the company is gushing red ink — losing more than $130 million in 18 months.

The state Department of Financial Services is advising customers to shop for new policies by Nov. 15, to ensure coverage for the rest of this year as well as next.

Under state law, patients are guaranteed 60 days of “continuity of coverage” at the facility where they are being treated.

Sloan Kettering said it is urging the state to extend that to one year.

But no other ObamaCare insurer has been able to reach a deal with Sloan Kettering, leaving the Health Republic patients in the lurch.
“Unfortunately, at this time, no exchange plan has agreed to include access to Memorial Sloan Kettering despite our concerted and consistent attempts,” said hospital spokeswoman Christine Hickey.

The cancer patients aren’t the only ones scrambling.

Health Republic has a total of 200,000 customers — 20 percent of the health exchange’s individual market.

A state spokesman said the Cuomo administration has been “working day and night . . . to address the situation and protect consumers.”

White House may have to renegotiate Pacific trade pact

A key U.S. senator said on Friday the Obama administration may have to renegotiate parts of a Pacific trade pact, heralding a tough battle to win support in Congress.

The administration notified lawmakers on Thursday it plans to sign the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership, starting a countdown to a congressional vote that could come in the middle of next year’s election campaign.

But U.S. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, a Republican whose support will be crucial to passing the deal, said that although he reserved judgment on the fine print, negotiators might have to go back to the table.

“I understand that renegotiation may be difficult, particularly with so many parties involved,” he said in a speech at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which also has yet to give a verdict on the pact.

“But at the end of the day, the alternative to renegotiation may very well be no TPP at all.”

Some of President Barack Obama’s Democrats have also suggested renegotiating the deal, which must be ratified by Congress.

But a senior administration official slapped down the call and said the deal was as good as it gets.

“The idea that renegotiating this agreement could deliver a better deal is patently false,” the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

“This is the strongest possible outcome and reopening it would unravel a deal that cuts more than 18,000 different taxes various countries put on Made-in-America goods, reflects American leadership in the Asia-Pacific, and levels the playing field for American workers, innovators, and businesses.”

Hatch’s main concern is the protection period for next-generation biological drugs. He had wanted a 12-year minimum, but the TPP settled on five years with a buffer for administrative processes the administration official said effectively amounted to eight years.

While Hatch said he would carefully study the text, released on Thursday, he also saw problems with provisions on tobacco, labor rules and dairy.

“We’re losing votes as we speak for no good reason,” he told reporters. “My suggestion is, get back to the bargaining table and let them know that this may not pass.”

Hatch said it would be difficult to take up the TPP during an election year anyway, even in the end-year period between the election and swearing in the new Congress.

“A lot of people on something this important do not want to have it passed or rejected by a lame duck Congress,” he said.

‘Staggering’: 680,000 Muslims to U.S. under Obama

The U.S. issued 680,000 green cards to migrants from Muslim-majority countries in the five-year period encompassing 2009 through 2013, according to Department of Homeland Security data.

This Islamic “invasion,” as some are calling it, occurred on the Obama administration’s watch, with plans for 10,000 Syrian Muslims grabbing much of the headlines. But the actual number is many times higher with a refugee program that is rooted in the 1980s and has the support of both parties.

The U.S. has brought in more than 1.5 million Muslims through the refugee program since the passage of the Refugee Act of 1980. They have been coming from Islamic states with active jihadist movements such as Somalia, Bangladesh, Burma, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Bosnia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

To put this five-year tally – 680,000 – in context, it surpasses the total population of Washington, D.C., which is 660,000.

Yet, the Gang of Eight immigration “reform” bill co-sponsored by GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio would have tripled the number of green cards being issued.

The data was released by Sen. Jeff Session, R-Ala., who serves on four Senate committees: Armed Services, Budget, Environment and Public Works, and Judiciary, where he is chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest.

Services, Budget, Environment and Public Works, and Judiciary, where he is chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest.

What do YOU think? How many Muslim ‘refugees’ are too many? Sound off in today’s WND poll

Among those receiving green cards are foreign nationals admitted to the United States as refugees. Within one year, they must apply for lawful permanent resident status, also referred to as a green card, and are placed on a fast track to full citizenship, which is obtainable within five years.

Refugees, which are hand-picked by the United Nations for resettlement in more than 180 U.S. cities and towns, have instant access to federal welfare and entitlements, along with local benefits and education services. These costs are not offset.

The 680,000 number is not an estimate of total migration, as it does not include temporary migrants who return home, nor is it an estimate of population change, as it does not include births or deaths, among other considerations.

There is no official tally of the Muslim population in America because the Census does not track religious affiliation. The estimates range from 2.8 million by Pew Research based on a 2011 study and 7 million as estimated by the Council for American-Islamic Relations.

“Whatever the exact level, it can hardly be considered surprising that as the Muslim population in the country has expanded, so has the incidence of radicalism,” wrote Ian Tuttle in an article for National Review titled “The Troubling Math of Muslim Immigration.”

In fact, many of the recent terrorist attacks on U.S. soil have been carried out by Muslim immigrants, including the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 and the Chattanooga shooting earlier this year.

Sessions’ immigration subcommittee has documented 72 cases of Muslim suspects carrying out attacks or attempted attacks over the past year. He believes all of them are either foreign-born Muslim immigrants or their offspring and has asked the Obama administration to clarify their immigration histories, but the administration has ignored the request.



Much of the media reporting on the global warming hoax summit in Paris is acting like it is a foregone conclusion that a treaty will be imposed on the people by the exploiters that are known as their governments. But this Associated Press story suggests the Republicans in Congress might stop Obama’s attempt to get an agreement.

(Calling the treaty an a “agreement” might sound like it involves an agreement with us. That’s the delusion they want us to believe. It is actually an agreement among to world rulers to make our energy more expensive. The people don’t agree to anything; we just comply with orders.)

President Barack Obama is trying to negotiate a legacy-making climate change pact this coming week in Paris with one hand tied behind his back. Congress can’t even agree whether global warming is real.

Scientists point to the global agreement, years in the making, as the last, best hope for averting the worst effects of global warming. Obama has spent months prodding other countries to make ambitious carbon-cutting pledges to the agreement, which he hopes will become the framework for countries to tackle the climate issue long beyond the end of his presidency in early 2017.

But Republicans have tried to undermine the president by sowing uncertainty about whether the U.S. will make good on its promises. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and other GOP leaders have warned other countries not to trust any deal Obama may strike; other GOP allies are working to nullify Obama’s emissions-cutting steps at home.

“Congress and more than half of the states have already made clear that he won’t be speaking for us,” according to a McConnell opinion column posted on The Washington Post’s website. He said it would be “irresponsible for an outgoing president to purport to sign the American people up” for a new climate agreement.

I have been horrified by how Republicans, given both the House and Senate in 2014, have betrayed the people who voted for them on many issues. But this time they seem to be genuinely opposing the President.



Muslims My Arse…

I want to shake the guy’s hand that wrote this…
Have you ever seen a Muslim hospital?
Have you heard a Muslim orchestra?
Have you seen a Muslim band march in a parade?
Have you witnessed a Muslim charity?
Have you shaken hands with a Muslim Girl Scout?
Have you seen a Muslim Candy Striper?
The answer is no, you have not. Just ask yourself WHY ???
Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said: “I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America ‘s history.”
Dear Mr. Obama:
Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed?  Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.
Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day?   Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.
Can you show me one Muslim signature on the: United States Constitution?
Declaration of Independence ?
Bill of Rights?
Didn’t think so.
Did Muslims fight for this country’s freedom from England ?  No.

Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America ?   No, they did not.
In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery.   Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as “pug nosed slaves.”  Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family’s “rich Islamic heritage,” doesn’t it Mr. Obama?
Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country?
Not present.
There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.
Where were the Muslims during America’s Woman’s Suffrage era?
Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture.   So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the ‘hajib’ or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband.   Yep, the Muslims are all for women’s rights, aren’t they?
Where were Muslims during World War II?
They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi’s in killing Jews.
Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001?
If they weren’t flying planes into the World Trade Center , the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East .   No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news network’s that day.  Strangely, the very “moderate” Muslims who’s arses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo , Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11.   To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.
And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the “rich heritage” Muslims have here in America ….
Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates.  They were Muslims.

And now we can add November 5, 2009 – the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan .
Also, don’t forget the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, 2013 was done by 2 Muslim Brothers. That, Mr. Obama is the “Muslim heritage” in America.
Now we have the deaths of two Canadian Soldiers, one run down by a motor vehicle the other shot whilst guarding a war memorial with an unloaded rifle.

Muslim Heritage, my arse

Obama Admin. Says Legal Gun Owners are a Threat, but ISIS is No Threat At All


(NaturalNews) American gun owners can spot a gun-grabber a mile away, and they have known for several years now that their president is one of them. Time and again, Barack Obama has attempted to goad the country and Congress into backing stricter gun control laws that would do little to reduce mass shootings that are statistically rare to begin with,[PDF] according to a government study.

But statistics and facts and the truth about guns don’t matter to an ideologue like Obama; as, a Natural News indy partner site, reported recently, Obama is likely to spend his final year in office pressing for more gun control laws that will weaken the Second Amendment and actually make Americans more vulnerable to criminals.

To Obama, American gun owners are a threat and menace to society – he must obviously think so, otherwise he wouldn’t continually prioritize the pursuit of more and more gun laws when the existing laws on the books are more than enough to restrict and govern Americans and others who voluntarily choose to obey them. No new law or even gun bans would do anything to stop bad people from obtaining a firearm and doing bad things with it.

But you know who Obama doesn’t really believe is a threat to the U.S.? Members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS. If he did, he wouldn’t support or implement a policy that welcomes them into the United States disguised as “refugees.”

In stumping for support of his policy – he has announced that, despite the ISIS-backed terrorist attack in Paris Nov. 13, in which 129 people were killed and hundreds more wounded, he was committed to accepting some 10,000 Syrian refugees into the country.

Importing terror while trying to disarm America
“We have very robust vetting procedures for those refugees. It involves our intelligence community, our national counterterrorism center, extensive interviews, vetting them against all the available information,” Deputy National Security Advisor to the President Ben Rhodes told Fox News recently. That’s not really true, since there is no reason to have Syrian citizens in U.S. government databases, making them all but impossible to vet.

But there is also this. Syria – and Syrians – are enemies of our lone trustworthy ally in the Middle East, Israel, having fought three wars against the Jewish state (1948, 1967 and 1973), which means that the Syrian government has always been hostile towards Israel’s principle benefactor, the United States. What sense does it make to import an ethnic group that was raised to hate you – because of your alliance with an archenemy and because of your “infidel” way of life?

How many are ‘poisonous’?
The Obama Administration doesn’t want you to know such things, however. What’s more, the White House only wants you to consider that these refugees are really just harmless people fleeing a war-torn country, and that they deserve a chance at a better life in America.

There are a number of things wrong with these assertions, aside from those already mentioned. One is that radical Syrian refugees have already been involved in terrorist attacks, both within the “caliphate” of ISIS and aboard. One who was involved in the Paris attacks had a passport from Greece.

Another is that, domestically, Obama plans to infiltrate Syrian refugees into the heart of the country, and he’s already moving some into Louisiana, where one Syrian male has already gone missing. What happens when some of these new arrivals become radicalized? What happens if they already are radicalized? ISIS promised to use the refugee “crisis” as a Trojan Horse of sorts, to infiltrate its operatives into Western countries.

There are several popular memes on social media that attempt to portray, in clever but realistic terms, the fallacy of Obama’s Syrian refugee policy. One features a bowl of grapes and asks, “If I served you 10 and told you that two of them were poisonous, would you eat any?” The connotation, of course, is that while most Syrians may be harmless, a few may not be – and how many American lives are we willing to sacrifice to find out?

Obama is apparently ready to run the experiment and – if he gets his way – he’ll conduct it with a lesser-armed American citizenry.

Climate Scientists Dismantle Manmade Theory of Global Warming

Perhaps the only manmade thing about global warming is the theory itself. The earth goes through climate cycles in the same way that it goes through seasons. The fact that the climate changes is nothing new. It goes through warming cycles and cooling cycles. The part where the issue ceases to be scientific is the subject of who’s to blame, as if someone has to be blamed for the weather. In politics, pointing fingers at a particular group of people is how you win elections.

A group of climate scientists attacked liberals’ alarmist view of global warming. The Daily Caller reported:

A panel of prominent scientists debunked one of the most popular global warming arguments ahead of a major United Nations climate summit to take place in Paris later this month.

The scientists slammed policies to reduce carbon dioxide emissions as “nonsense,” and they criticized politicians and activists for claiming the world was on the path for catastrophic global warming.

“The most important thing to keep in mind is — when you ask ‘is it warming, is it cooling’, etc. — is that we are talking about something tiny (temperature changes) and that is the crucial point,” Dr. Richard Lindzen, a veteran climate scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

“We are speaking of small changes 0.25 Celcius would be about 51% of the recent warming and that strongly suggests a low and inconsequential climate sensitivity — meaning no problem at all,” said Lindzen, who is also a senior fellow at the libertarian Cato Institute.

President Barack Obama and his activist allies are calling for U.N. delegates to sign onto a global treaty to reduce CO2 emissions. Obama has been heavily pushing for this treaty for the past year or so, even lobbying the Chinese government to sign onto an agreement.

“Policies to slow CO2 emissions are really based on nonsense,” Dr. Will Happer, a physicist at Princeton University, said during the panel Thursday hosted by the conservative Texas Public Policy Foundation.

“They are all based on computer models that do not work. We are being led down a false path,” Happer argued.

According to alarmists, these people aren’t scientists, let alone climate scientists. They might have the credentials and the experience and all that, but the fact that they call into question a theory that has been politically accepted for decades shows that they do not deserve their credentials. They might as well deny gravity exists.

Conversely, a person needs no credentials to believe in manmade global warming. Think Bill Nye. He’s been a global warming cheerleader from the beginning. He has little more credentials than being a children’s TV show personality.


President Obama Planning a Major and Devasting Attack Against ISIS

It’s about damn time. Yesterday, President Obama announced that he will personally participate in delivering a devastating blow to ISIS. This news came at the same time as United States military sources confirmed that the American Air Force could not take out ISIS oil tankers because we ran out of bullets.

Undeterred, President Obama has a plan. He announced it yesterday in France with fanfare. The news is historic. This is the first time President Obama has ordered a full frontal assault on ISIS and he has put together a global coalition to make it happen. You might need to sit down for this. It is that big.

President Obama has decided to openly discuss climate change while in Paris. According to President Obama, that will be a serious “rebuke” to ISIS and show that there are more important dangers in the world than ISIS and that the world can go on about its business.

Seriously. President Obama said that. His precise words were, “What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children.”

As troubling as that is, consider Army Col. Steven Warren. In reporting that U.S. war planes had run out of bullets and therefore could not blow up ISIS fuel tankers, Col. Warren sought to assure the world by saying, AND THIS TOO IS A DIRECT QUOTE, “[T[he desire was to destroy every single truck there.”

Well if the world were run on lollipop dreams and unicorn farts, we’d all be safe now because our planes desired to destroy every single truck and President Obama is delivering a “powerful rebuke” to ISIS by talking about global warming.

These people are not serious.

And, considering Barack Obama is also now on record claiming that global warming causes terrorism, I again must ask why we are not studying why global warming only causes muslims to become terrorists. The Christians and Jews in the Middle East are not becoming terrorists. If we can spend $3 million to study why lesbians are fat, surely we can spend a few hundred thousand to find out why global warming makes only muslims become terrorists.
