I don’t know exactly what is happening. I don’t have any inside track, but since you all have been calling your members of Congress to defund the Refugee Admissions Program (Rep. Babin’s strategy is a good one), I need to tell you what some House Republicans proposed two days ago.
Go here to page 8 of HR 6071(Title III Ensuring vetting of refugees to Keep Americans Safe).
It is the same old scam they tried to pull last year where the Director of the FBI and the Director of National Intelligence would certify that individual refugees from only Iraq and Syria would have to be ‘certified’ terror free.
This is what Senator Jeff Sessions said last yearwhen Congress was addressing the same issue!
The Republican Congress decides how many are brought to America by how much funding they make available.
Senator Jeff Sessions last year:
There is only one true check now against the President going it alone: Congressional funding. In his annual budget request, the President asked for more than $1 billion to fund the Refugee Admissions Program. All Congress has to do is make clear that the President’s funding request will not be granted unless he meets certain necessary Congressional requirements – the first of which should be to make clear that Congress, not the President, has the final say on how many refugees are brought into the United States and from where.
Apparently negotiations are on-going between the House and Senate to get the Continuing Budget Resolution done so they can get home to campaign so they can get back in there in January and not do their work again next year.
Will let you know what I learn later today or tomorrow (you may know before me!).
See my tag ‘Where is Congress’ for everything I’ve written on the funding issue in recent weeks.
Even after the (told you so!) attack at St. Cloud’s Crossroads mall last Saturday night, the first instincts of elected officials in Minnesota is to rally around the Somali Muslim population to protect their sensitive feelings.
In an interview with World Net Daily, Bachmann does not hold back! (St. Cloud was part of her district during the years she was in Congress and trying to get her fellow members to wake up to Islamic supremacism and the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the Administration in Washington, DC.)
From Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily:
Minnesota’s St. Cloud community is still reeling from Saturday’s knife attacks that injured 10 people and caused panic at the Crossroads Center Mall on Saturday, a day that police chief William Anderson said changed the city forever.
But did it?
The city of 67,000 people sits 65 miles northwest of Minneapolis. It has been pummeled with Muslim refugees, mostly from Somalia, for more than a decade, and its citizens have been brow beaten into a form of politically correct submission to Islam, says former Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.
“I would say that this attack did wake people up in the sense that this was real and it happened in our backyard and people are aware of it. But Minnesota is a state where we have been marinated in political correctness for quite some time, and the pushback against any type of conservatism is extremely intense. So people have no fight left in them,” Bachmann told WND.
To say anything negative about Islam immediately gets you branded a bigot, a xenophobe, a racist or an “Islamophobe,” she said. It doesn’t matter that Islam is not a race or that the term “Islamophobe” was invented by the extremist Muslim Brotherhood as a tool to cast Western Muslims as victims of oppression.

By the way, if Hillary and her chief aide Huma Abedin make it to the Oval Office we are finished, but I don’t need to tell you that!
You might want to visit our top post over the last few days—it is from 2015—about how Lutheran Social Services of Minnesota is responsible for seeding St. Cloud with Somalis.
We have focused our attention on the vetting process for refugee resettlement, maybe because that is easier to see, easier maybe to get a handle on, but most of the recent successful terror attacks in the US have been committed by those 3-year olds we raised up after we ‘welcomed’ their families to America. How do you vet against those?
When I say “we,” I mean the US taxpayer. We put roofs over their heads, we fed them, we treated their medical problems and sent them to school and college, and what came out at the end, not an upwardly mobile young man, but a killer for Allah.
So we can vet the refugees coming in all we want, but its the next generation that has turned to the teaching of Islam for their guidance.
Both of the terrorists last weekend (in NY/NJ and MN) came to America as small children, as refugees and asylees.
And, who can forget the Boston Bombers—the Tsarnaev brothers. But, I bet you have long forgotten the Somali Christmas tree bomber and the evil creep who killed some of our military men in Chattanooga. (I’m not bothering to list all of the Minnesota Somalis who either already left the country to join the international jihad or are in prison for trying to leave.)
All came as children who grew up supposedly assimilated and then said s**** the good life, I want to kill infidels. How do you screen against those?
Do you remember when Obama went to the Philippines in 2015 and sneered at American ‘fears of 3-year olds?’
(There is actually a longer version of this same speech where he sneers at the idea of bringing in only Christians but could not find one that could be inserted easily here.)
Let’s be honest, if it weren’t for the vast numbers of Muslims being admitted through the refugee program we wouldn’t be talking about all of this. We still couldn’t economically afford the unsustainable numbers Obama and the Republicans in Congress are admitting from all corners of the world, but Islamic terrorism would not be our major fear.
As far as I know, no 3-year-old Christian refugees have grown up to attack us (to bite the hand that fed them) in the name of their faith. Face it! The only possible solution is a moratorium on Muslim refugees (and other legal immigrants) coming to the US from certain parts of the world, because yes, we have a legitimate (proven) fear of 3-year-olds. An aside:You know how we could expose the young jihadists living in our communities. If we had a law on the books to deport all immediate family members of a convicted Islamic terrorist and anyone else connected to that terrorist who could be proven to have known about his/her intentions—best friends, Imams, etc. Imagine how quickly some of these potential jihadists would be turned in in advance!
