Obama’s ‘Countering Violent Extremism’ summit opened yesterday and is on-going today

It was at the opening yesterday that VP Joe Biden told about his Somali pals driving cabs in his hometown.   Here is what the Voice of America reported yesterday.

If you are on twitter, go to #CVESummit today to follow the latest news.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was brilliant at the Defeat Jihad Summit hosted by the Center for Security Policy. http://www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/2015/02/17/newt-gingrich-is-right-obama-is-hopeless-on-the-global-jihad-threat/

Last week the Center for Security Policy held its own summit (Defeat Jihad Summit) and reported in advance on the three cities the Obama Administration is showcasing—Boston, Minneapolis, and Los Angeles.

For readers of RRW, don’t fall off your chairs laughing that Minneapolis will be featured as a success story for the O-man at the CVE Summit.

Don’t miss a stunning report at the Washington Times about what is happening in Boston hometown of the notorious political refugees the Tsarnaev Boston bombers.

This is a report from the Center for Security Policy about their event last week:

On Wednesday February 11th, the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C. hosted the first ever “Defeat Jihad Summit” with leaders represented from across the world discussing the threat of Islamic Jihadis and how to build a strategy for victory.  This has never been done since the jihadis in Iran declared war against us in 1979.

Participating in this event were Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukaseyformer House Speaker Newt GingrichSenator Ted CruzRepresentative Steven King, Representative Mike Pompeo (Kansas), Representative Scott Perry (Pennsylvania), Admiral James “Ace” Lyons (U.S. Navy, Ret.), Lieutenant General William “Jerry” Boykin (U.S. Army, Ret.), former Representative Pete Hoekstra, Leading 9/11 family member Deborah Burlingame, Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders, Danish free speech advocate Lars Hedegaard, Britain’s Lord Malcolm Pearson, Israeli Ambassador Yoram Ettinger, Claremont President Brian Kennedy, former Muslim Nonie Darwish, Muslim reformer Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, Australian pastor Mark Durie, Andrew McCarthy (author and former Chief CT Prosecutor, NY), the Honorable Joseph Schmitz (Inspector General, Department of Defense, Bush Administration), Judge Jeanine Pirro, human rights attorney Deborah Weiss, author/journalist Diana West, Dr. Charles Jacobs (Executive Director, Americans for Peace and Tolerance), national security expert and CSP Fellow J. Michael Waller, CSP Fellow and strategic analyst Major Stephen Coughlin (US Army, reserves), Rabbi Jonathan Hausman, retired CIA case officer Clare Lopez, and leadership of the Center for Security Policy.

Understanding the Threat Founder John Guandolo participated in this program as well.

The focus of the program was to clearly identify the enemy the United States and the West is facing, and begin a discussion on building long-term solutions to defeating the Islamic Movement in all its forms.  The focus is total victory.

In summation, the threat we face is a global Islamic Movement whose doctrine is Sharia (Islamic Law).  Now subverting governments worldwide, conquering nations/regions across the globe, and barbarically killing hundreds of thousands of human beings on several continents, this massive threat continues to be minimized and given little attention by the current U.S. administration.

See our previous post this morning about how the media is beginning to understand the threat of Muslim refugees coming to a town near you.

The Washington media begins to get it! Syrian refugees pose threat to national security

I laughed this morning when I saw last week’s news—that those in charge of national security have discovered an important chink in our “humanitarian” refugee program as it relates to Syrians (and frankly Iraqis and Somalis as well!)—how do you screen someone who has no paper trail?

And, how do you keep them from being radicalized once we let them in?

This story (from last week) is this morning’s headline story under the banner (Obama letting ISIS in?) at Drudge.

(ABC News) US Officials Admit Concern Over Syrian Refugee Effort.

Readers: Consider yourselves more educated on this national security issue than most of Washington!

For any new readers in the national media—be sure to see the State Department obfuscating here and know that Syrian refugees are already arriving!  

Here is news from just a few days ago where Syrians are arriving in the home state of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and 2016 Presidential contender Senator Rand Paul.

Senator Jeff Sessions releases timeline of Obama’s lawless actions on immigration

Thanks to Henry for sending this Breitbart News story.  The lawlessness by the Administration was something we were trying to get across to viewers of Fox & Friends last week.  And, certainly you have seen the news that a federal judge has halted (for now) Obama’s Executive Amnesty.

Want to see the Presidential electoral landscape blow up—urge Senator Sessions to put his hat in the ring for 2016. This immigration issue is the animating issue for real conservatives in America. It touches us all from jobs to the economy to national security!

Breitbart News on the Senator’s 50-page time line of lawless acts by the Administration:

As Republicans work to overcome a Democratic filibuster of a House-passed Department of Homeland Security bill that blocks President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is highlighting the Obama administration’s long history of dismantling immigration laws.

In a lengthy timeline released Monday, Sessions — the chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest — lists every instance of the Obama administration ignoring, rewriting, delaying and breaking the nation’s immigration laws.

The timeline begins in January 2009 with the administration ending worksite enforcement actions and, 50 pages later, ends on February 13, 2015 with the House Judiciary Committee’s revelation that the administration included a “sneaky” avenue for illegal immigrants granted deferred status to be placed on a pathway to citizenship.

Here is the section of the report we were attempting to explain on Fox:

September 30, 2014: Obama Administration Circumvents Congress and Creates New Central American In-Country Refugee Program

The State Department announces that parents who are “lawfully present” in the U.S. who have children living in El Salvador, Guatemala, or Honduras may request their child’s admission into the U.S. as a refugee—despite a lack of explanation as to how those children may constitute “refugees” as defined in the INA. Even when a child is not eligible for entry under the refugee program, they can still be considered for entry under a case-by-case parole program. Section 101 of the INA defines a refugee as a person “who has a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.” Courts have held that persecution requires government action, and that general violence or poverty does not meet the requirements for refugee or asylee status. Parole, commonly referred to as “humanitarian parole,” is authorized by Section 212 of the INA. The statute grants the Executive Branch discretion to “parole into the United States temporarily under such conditions as [it] may prescribe only on a case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.” While the administration acknowledges in its release that parole, by definition, is temporary in nature, it says aliens granted parole from Central America would be allowed into the U.S. in two-year increments and allowed to renew their parole, apparently indefinitely. It is later revealed that those granted deferred action, deferred enforced departure, and withhold of removal, will be eligible to participate. In effect, the program will allow “illegals in the United States to bring their children, their adult children, their grandchildren, and even step-parents into the United States.”

Just as Congress (Kennedy and Biden) wrote the original refugee law, so must Congress re-write it!
