What happened in France is likely to happen in the US, thanks to Obama and Kerry- UPDATED

A Syrian passport has been recovered near the body of one of the Paris attackers.

You know what we need? More of this in the US:

BERLIN — The Obama administration will increase the number of worldwide refugees the United States accepts each year to 100,000 by 2017, a significant increase over the current annual cap of 70,000, Secretary of State John Kerry said.

“This step that I am announcing today, I believe, is in keeping with the best tradition of America as a land of second chances and a beacon of hope,” Mr. Kerry said, adding that it “will be accompanied by additional financial contributions” for the relief effort.

70,000 per year isn’t enough:

Under the new plan, the limit on annual refugee visas would be increased to 85,000 in 2016. The cap would then rise to 100,000 the following year.

We can’t properly vet those kind of numbers. Mike McCaul, Chairman of House Homeland Security committee, said back in April:

“When I had a hearing on this, the assistant director of the FBI testified that it’s a major problem, and frankly, I don’t think Homeland Security supports this either. And the FBI, I know they do not — strongly, because you can’t properly vet these individuals, because they don’t have the proper database,” he said Tuesday.

He added, “So they don’t have the proper vetting on who these people are, and if you don’t know who they are and you bring them into the country, that poses a threat.”

Well before the announced increase in refugee admittance, the FBI admitted:

Obama plans to bring 10,000 additional Syrian Refugees to the U.S. this year, yet the FBI has already said they do not have a way to properly vet the refugees, which could cause a threat to national security.

“We don’t have it under control,” Mr. Michael Steinback, Assistant Director for the FBI told the House Homeland Security committee in February. “Absolutely, we’re doing the best we can. If I were to say that we had it under control, then I would say I know of every single individual traveling. I don’t. And I don’t know every person there and I don’t know everyone coming back. So it’s not even close to being under control.”

Mike McCaul asked Steinbeck:

The chairman of the Homeland Security committee, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), asked officials from DHS, FBI and the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), “if bringing in Syrian refugees pose a greater risk to Americans?” Steinback responded, “Yes, I’m concerned. We’ll have to go take a look at those lists and go through all of those intelligence holdings and be very careful to try and identify connections to foreign terrorist groups.”

Last week Rep. McCaul renewed the concern that ISIS wants to use the refugee crisis to sneak into western countries. “The President wants to surge thousands of Syrian refugees into the United States, in spite of consistent intelligence community and federal law enforcement warnings that we do not have the intelligence needed to vet individuals from the conflict zone. We also know that ISIS wants to use refugee routes as cover to sneak operatives into the West,” he said in a statement.

In Early September Nigel Farage said

“When ISIS say they will use the migrant tide to flood Europe with 500,000 of their own jihadists, I think we better listen.”

ISIS claims to already have inserted 4000 terrorists posing as refugees into Europe.

The FBI cannot properly vet the numbers of “refugees” being brought into this country now. Obama and Kerry plan on significant increases in those numbers. This is unacceptable and it all but guarantees what is happening in France will happen in the US. Obama is speeding up the process of making sure those Syrians get into the US.

Hillary Clinton already told ISIS that she would not declare war on them.

ISIS is seeking to establish a caliphate in the Middle East and likely harbors the dream of going on to conquering the world. They are the cause of the refugee crisis in Syria. There are two choices to deal with the refugee crisis. Either treat the symptoms or treat the disease. If a patient contracts cancer, it can be treated with pain medication until the patient dies or the cancer can be excised. The choices in Syria are two: import the entire population of the Syria into the Europe and the US or destroy ISIS. Now.

If he wasn’t such an idiot, Obama would forge a coalition with Turkey, Russia, Syria, Egypt, Iraq and even his pals in Iran and create a force to ferret out and terminate ISIS as ruthlessly as ISIS has treated its captives. The problem is, Obama has been too busy knocking over secular dictators, who while not ideal, stuffed ISIS and Al Qaeda.

Americans who leave this nation to fight for ISIS (and are perhaps trained by ISIS) are allowed simply to return when they’re of a mind to do so. Now we’re going to import a quarter of a million Syrians without proper vetting into the US.

There’s nothing to worry about, says Obama, since ISIS is contained. They’re the JV, right? The war on terror is over, right?

It’s hard to imagine a more arrogant and stupid President. Or perhaps he really doesn’t want to defeat ISIS. Obama has two kids. You’d think he’d worry about the kind of world he’s molding for them. Or maybe things are going just as he wants them.

This war is upon us. It is in the country now. It has the form of refugees for the moment, but if our current policy continues it will be much more than that.

UPDATE

At least two of the Paris attackers are “migrants”

It’s not a question of Americans dying any longer. The only question is how many will have to die before Obama and his band of goddam idiots get a clue.

    For what its worth, French authorities are claiming these French Muslim terrorists spoke French like natives, not like immigrants.
    Also that the foreign passports found near two bodies of terrorists are likely fakes.

    Now, France is still declaring war on ISIS over this attack.
    As a NATO member nation, the USA should also be at war with ISIS.

    Will similar things happen here?
    We thwart attacks all the time!
    Just the other day a jihadist was stopped before he could destroy Christian churches.

    He was publishing photos, addresses and military branch of members of our military on a Tumblr account.
    He quoted this:

    “O Brothers in America, know that the jihad against the crusaders is not limited to the lands of the Khilafah, it is a world-wide jihad and their war is not just a war against the Islamic State, it is a war against Islam…Know that it is wajib (translated to “necessary”) for you to kill these kuffar! and now we have made it easy for you by giving you addresses, all you need to do is take the final step, so what are you waiting for? Kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their streets thinking that they are safe…”

    PS, he worked in an Ohio hospital where, god knows, he could have hastened the deaths of many people!

    It’s hard to imagine a more arrogant and stupid President.

    You know, I know, everyone reading this knows, even Obama knows, – – – there is no way to confirm identification of individuals living in, or coming from, MOST OF THE WORLD.

    It is not difficult, nor expensive, to get ‘created’ ID. Movies pretend you need to ‘know some really shady guy’ but it’s not that hard. It occurs every day in every nation on earth.

    However, since Obama knows this (the CIA / FBI surely told him since he’d experienced zilch before getting to the Oval Office), WHY is he pulling a Merkel on America?

    That’s a most disturbing question. I have suspicions, which include real long term objectives of the senior bankers, but it’s nevertheless seriously upsetting.

    Yes, it looks like the terrorists included refugees.
    A few French ear-witnesses heard what sounded like perfect French a born-in-France Muslim might speak.
    But that might be from only some of the terrorists, not all of them.
    Also, a young woman from my alma mater died in the attacks.

It might cause people to stop thinking about gun control, climate change, and coexisting with Islamists.

    @DrJohn, #16:

    A liberal President ordered the air war against ISIS in Syria that has reduced their numbers by a third over the past year. He ordered the air strikes and drone strikes that paralyzed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, this past March; that killed his replacement Abu Ala al-Afri two months later; that blew Jihadi John to bits last Friday, and killed Abu Nabil, the leader of ISIS in Libya, just a few hours ago.

    What have elected republicans done? They won’t even allow a vote on Obama’s request to use military force in Syria.

    Bill

    @Greg: Unfortunately, the proposals of the Republicans are ignored. If Obama has been so successful attacking ISIS, why are they growing and conquering? How did they bring down a Russian airliner? How did they kill 129 in Paris?

    It takes a little more than just declaring victory to ACHIEVE victory. Obama thinks if the lap-dog, corrupt media repeats his lies, they become true.

    What republican proposals? I haven’t heard any specific proposals. All I’ve heard are assertions that they’ll be more aggressive and win the fight. These are not proposals. They’re attitudes. They’re nothing more than examples of political posturing. ISIS won’t wilt upon being targeted by blasts of republican hot air. A Reaper-launched Hellfire missle, on the other hand, can produce some highly specific results.

    It is incomprehensible that the liberal pacifism capable of watching videos of the slaughter of innocents, whether in Paris or on the beaches of Libya, can separate itself so easily from reality. Don’t learn from the mistakes and don’t take any action to deal with the problem.

    It can excuse the violence. It can rationalize it. It can even blame it on global warming. It thinks it can ‘negotiate’ with it — let’s do lunch. BUT, as long as liberal pacifists aren’t directly, personally affected, they’re just watching a Hollywood production. Their society disintegrates around them, while they’re busy being entertained.

    There has been NO purge of the U.S. military by the Obama administration on ideological grounds. This has been demonstrated to be nothing more than a right-wing propaganda tale. While those making the assertion never bothered to present any details to back their claims up, those who hold that the accusers are basically full of sh-t have presented clear explanations of why that has been their conclusion.

    There have been instances of routine retirements being misrepresented as firings. Certain high-ranking officers have also been removed for ethics violations or for demonstrating poor judgement that called their reliability into question. Some would say that setting a higher standard was long overdue.

    I am so damn tired of the lies that are automatically accepted as truth by people who never bother to question what they’re told. There’s a built-in resistance to questioning. It’s as if people have been inoculated against anything that raises doubt.

    Actually, that’s exactly what it is. How much time and energy has been devoted by the right-wing propaganda machine to broadcasting the message that no other information sources can be trusted? That itself is a classic propaganda technique. You’re supposed to turn off your brain and stop analyzing. You’re supposed to stop comparing different stories. You’re to listen to only one version of the story. You’re only smart if you stop thinking.

    @kitt, #27:

    Really? That’s nothing more than a list of names. What indicates that any of these people were removed from their positions as a result of some sort of ideological purge of the military? There were specific reasons for their removal that had nothing to do with ideological differences:

    Patreaus: a public adultery scandal involving his official biographer, an army lieutenant colonel.

    Ralph O. Baker: sexual assault while drunk. He was charged by a senior adviser.

    David H. Huntoon Jr: misuse of office. That was the conclusion of an investigation conducted by the Pentagon.

    Joseph F. Fil, Jr: He was evidently accepting unreported gifts as commander of the 8th Army in South Korea, and was spared the scandal that would result from public revelation of the details. Gifts can be given to win favor. Under certain circumstances they’re known as “bribes.”

    John R. Allen: He retired during an investigation concerning “inappropriate communications” with a woman involved in the Patreaus scandal. She alleged an effort was being made to blackmail her. Allen retired, and then was cleared of misconduct charges. The details never became public. Evidently this resolution was considered acceptable by Allen.

    Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair: He plead guilty to having a 3-year sexual liaison with a subordinate. The details of the affair are decidedly sordid. Presumably he is not the party who complained of forced sodomy.

    Vice Adm. Tim Giardina: He was fined and demoted in rank for lying to investigators in connection with the use of counterfeit gambling chips, and subsequently retired. No doubt there were issues concerning his reliability as a high-ranking officer.

    Gen. Michael Carey: Evidently he couldn’t control himself drunk, and drank a lot. There were a number of high-profile incidents that reflected badly on the military service.

    Gen. William E. “Kip” Ward: He spent a lot of public money on personal travel and various unauthorized expenses. There was a formal investigation. He was ordered to repay $82,000 of misappropriated funds and demoted by his superior officer. Subsequently, he retired.

    Look up any example given of someone who was “purged.” You’ll either find a good reason for their demotion or removal, or a perfectly normal decision to retire.

    @Randy, #29:

    The word “confined” was used in a certain context. Check back with me after you’ve bothered to check on what that context was.

    Sending troops into Iraq to begin with was a blunder. The same administration that made that blunder also locked in the timetable for U.S. troop withdrawal that could only be altered with the consent of the al Maliki government. The S.O.F.A. that imposed those conditions on the United States was hurriedly finalized during the last days of the Bush administration.

    Those are the plain and simple facts. We could have refrained from creating the power vacuum in the first place. The intelligence community warned that this would happen. The Bush administration could have left it to their successor to negotiate the conditions for withdrawal. They didn’t. They locked that in just before they scurried out the door.

    General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.”

    @kitt:

    When did it become a crime to the libs to have an affair? Or is it only if you are not a lib?

    In the case of Sinclair, it’s got nothing to do with liberal views. For an officer to have an affair with a subordinate is a violation of military code. The details probably didn’t incline anyone to overlook the misconduct. To do so would have been more an official cover-up than a matter of politely looking away.

    As there’s no indication that Patraeus began his affair until after his retirement from the military, his issue is mostly a matter of decorum, although there would always be concerns in some circles that a Director of the CIA engaging in a secret extramarital affair might at some point become vulnerable to blackmail. That probably would have been the basis for quiet investigation. Unfortunately there were a number of other involved parties in sensitive positions, and Paula Broadwell seems to have behaved like a bit of a fruitcake. It became a public scandal, at which point Patraeus voluntarily submitted his resignation. Obama couldn’t very well have declined to accept it, at that point. The damage was already done. To overlook the situation would appear to condone it.

    General Hamm never received a stand-down order. No such order was ever given. General Hamm has clearly stated, under oath, that no such order was ever received. It was a made-up story.

    General Hamm retired at 62, after completing 30 years in the service. He retired at the end of a normal 24-month tour of duty as Commander of the U.S. Africa Command.

    @Greg:

    I’m pretty big on evidence. Any idiot can have an attitude or hold an opinion. I’ve observed that many do.

    Did Obama and Hillary lie about a video being the cause of the attack on the Benghazi consulate?

    Frankly, YOU are no judge of anyone’s ability to evaluate competence. YOU voted for Obama and support Hillary.
