After the San Bernardino jihad slaughter demonstrated the catastrophic failure of our current refugee vetting process, why would the Democrats oppose tightening the process?
The party of treason. ISIS has vowed to send jihadis into the West via refugee migration.
While the measure passed overwhelmingly in the Republican House late last year, Senate Democrats had vowed to stop it, and they did.
This should not be political. It is logical, but the Democrats are aligned with the jihad force.
“Senate Blocks Bill on Tougher Refugee Screening,” By Jenniger Steinhauerjan, NY Times, January 20, 2016:
WASHINGTON — A bill that would have greatly tightened screening procedures on refugees from Syria and Iraq failed on a procedural vote in the Senate on Wednesday, saving President Obama from another vexing veto scenario on an issue that has divided the country.
While the measure passed overwhelmingly in the House late last year, Senate Democrats had vowed to stop it, and the matter quickly became enmeshed in presidential politics, presaging what is all but certain to be a contentious and protracted proxy battle for the White House fought in Congress this year.
“Over and over again, Republicans remain committed to pledging loyalty to the divisive platform they have built for Donald Trump,” said Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic leader, tying the issue of the refugee screening to Mr. Trump’s proposal to bar Muslims from entering the United States.
Three Republican senators running for president left the campaign trail briefly and returned to vote on the measure, an outgrowth of the terrorist attacks in Paris and elsewhere last year and of increasing unease among American voters over the nation’s security.
The senators — Marco Rubio of Florida, who has missed scores of votes over the last several months; Ted Cruz of Texas; and Rand Paul of Kentucky — all voted to move forward with the bill, along with the rest of their fellow Republicans.
The bill, which the House passed in November, 289 to 137, with nearly 50 Democrats supporting it, would have required that the director of the F.B.I., the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and the director of national intelligence confirm that each applicant from Syria and Iraq poses no threat, which the White House denounced last year as “untenable.”
In some ways, the refugee issue, attached to a large spending bill in December, was obviated by another measure that made changes to the so-called visa waiver program, which had permitted citizens of 38 countries to travel to the United States without a visa.
Under that new measure, with certain narrow exceptions, the United States now bars residents of Iraq, Syria, Iran and Sudan and foreigners who have traveled to those countries since March 2011 from participation in the program.
Just a few months ago, Republicans were highly motivated to halt the refugee program. On Wednesday, they seemed resigned to move on.
Republicans quickly pivoted to a coming bipartisan bill that would promote energy efficiency; expedite applications to export liquefied natural gas; and improve the nation’s electric grid, among other provisions. “We have a great opportunity to work together,” said Senator John Barrasso, Republican of Wyoming, barely mentioning the refugee bill.
Democrats, after mocking Republicans for rejecting their last-minute amendment effort with, as Senator Dick Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, put it, the fear of “scalded cats,” made only a halfhearted effort to press the issue on the floor.
Mr. Reid offered to come up with Democratic support to debate the bill if Republicans would agree to guarantee votes on four amendments, one of which was specifically designed to embarrass Republicans.
That measure would have officially denounced “Donald Trump’s reprehensible proposal to impose a religious test on admission into the United States,” Mr. Reid said. Another would have prevented people on the no-fly list from being able to buy firearms, which had already failed on the Senate floor. “We’ll not allow Republicans to hijack the Senate floor to play politics with our national security,” Mr. Reid said.
Republicans rejected the Democrats’ assertion that the bill was unfair to refugees, and argued that it was needed because war-torn Syria did not have proper record-keeping on its citizens for vetting.
Saying that supporters of the bill were “motivated by love for their families and communities,” Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, said, “I understand that the political pressure to oppose this balanced bill may be intense, but it’s also intensely shortsighted.”
Resisting commitments to specific amendments, Mr. McConnell offered a broader amendment process to get the bill moving, which Democrats rejected.
Democrats are almost certain to find opportunities to vote on measures related to the policy positions of Mr. Trump and perhaps of other Republican candidates this year, largely targeting vulnerable Republican senators up for re-election. Republicans have vowed to return to the favor — “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander,” Mr. McConnell said last week.
At the same time, Republicans also looked to other ways to embarrass or annoy the White House. Mr. McConnell immediately moved to set up a vote to override Mr. Obama’s recent veto of a congressional resolution that would have overturned his administration’s regulations on clean water. The House is expected to do the same, an effort that is likely to be successful. Senate Democrats will almost certainly block that effort Thursday, and members of both parties will then race to the airport in hopes of beating an expected snowstorm in Washington.
Republicans will also almost certainly seek to address immigration issues this year once again. Some members are eager to vote on a measure that would impose a five-year mandatory sentence on immigrants who are deported and return to the United States illegally.
Americans are increasingly concerned about national security, and Mr. Obama’s policies in Syria have bedeviled his presidency. In a poll conducted this month by The New York Times and CBS News, Americans disapproved of Obama’s handling of overall immigration policy by 55 percent to 37 percent.
In a similar poll in December, those surveyed were roughly split over whether the United States should allow any refugees from Syria into the United States.
That strong public sentiment has forced Democrats to take the bill quite seriously. At the same time, some Republican senators up for re-election in swing states have been reluctant to take up the issue.
“By blocking this measure, Senate Democrats are making it that much harder for us to keep Americans safe,” said House Speaker Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin in a statement Wednesday. “Their vote is irresponsible in a time of grave threats. Even the administration’s top law enforcement officials say there are gaps in our refugee program that terrorists can exploit.”

BREAKING: He’s Been CHARGED! Will Spend 15 Years In Prison – This Is HUGE!
Law and order is what separates us from the uncivilized. We have to have rules that people must abide by, and punishments if they don’t, otherwise our society would descend into anarchy. Might would make right, and basically, we would end up like most of the Middle East (hence, the reason people are fleeing as quickly as they can).
Another absolute imperative of a polite and orderly society is for the punishment to fit the crime. We can’t be cutting off the hands of beggars who steal an apple because they’re hungry, or slapping murderers on the wrist and sending them back out to kill again. There has to be some sort of sliding scale, and in this country, we have that. However, sometimes that line gets complicated, because of it hinges partially on motive.
One classic example is the difference in punishment between premeditated crimes and crimes of passion. If you’re caught up in the moment and you do something terrible, the punishment just isn’t going to be as bad as if you plotted and planned and basically turn out to be a psychopath who will do evil no matter what. But then the waters get even muddier when we talk about hate crimes. This is an area where those who perpetrate a crime against someone who has something about them that people love to hate will get a harsher punishment to try and curb groups being targeted.
This gets extremely complicated when it comes to religion, because unlike race, religion is something you choose, and while religion is protected in the United States, there’s one particular religion that many of us take exception to, and it’s the religion of Islam. Pamela Geller reports that one man who was particularly disenfranchised with Islam and what it’s doing to this country might be getting a bad rap. His crime was just that, a crime, and one that he should be punished for, but should he have federal charges leveled against him for breaking into a mosque and putting bacon inside? That’s the question at hand, and the answer starts with defining the difference between a crime and a “hate crime”:
“Crime: An illegal act against a victim.
Hate Crime: An illegal thought during a crime against a protected class of victim including religion.
Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer provided news and commentary about Michael Wolfe, sentenced to 15 years for alleged criminal mischief against, and alleged placement of bacon on the doorstep of, a mosque in Titusville, FL, on Jan. 2, 2016.
Wolfe is not a sympathetic character, considering his rap sheet. But 15 years? The Information has two charges:
Count I: Armed Burglary of a Structure with Hate Crime Enhancement (LF); and
Count II: Criminal Mischief to a Place of Worship with Hate Crime (F2).
Wow: Count I has a sentence up to life in prison. Burglary means a person who enters or remains in a dwelling, a structure or conveyance with the intent to commit an offense therein. Armed? A machete was allegedly used to break approximately $800 total for two surveillance cameras, the floodlights, and the window. But a hate crime – evidencing prejudice – reclassifies a felony, 1st degree, to life felony!
Wow again: Count II has a sentence up to 30 years in prison. Criminal Mischief means a person who willfully and maliciously injures or damages by any means any real or personal property belonging to another. The simple version is a misdemeanor, 1st degree, punishable up to a year in county jail. But a hate crime – upon a mosque – makes it a felony, 3rd degree. Add a habitual offender, and its reclassified as a felony, 2nd degree, punishable by a minimum of 15 years, and a maximum of 30 years in prison.
Who called the Federal Bureau of Investigation? An FBI agent was present during an interview of Wolfe. Could there have been an implied threat of federal charges?
No wonder Wolfe plea bargained for dismissal of Count I in exchange for guilty of Count II.
From the Court order’s date, Wolfe has 30 days to appeal the conviction and sentence. Consider this possibility: It could effectively be a death sentence. Wolfe likely will be placed in the general population of the prison. There may be Muslim inmates, who may act on a de facto fatwa and attempt to injure or murder Wolfe.
Wolfe’s case: ‘The intent is to really deter similar kinds of hate crime,’ Imam Muhammad Musri is quoted in a news article, Bacon used in Hate Crime, written by Tess Sheets, a reporter for the Florida Today in Melbourne, FL.
So is there a wave of anti-Islamic sentiment in Florida?
There was a total of 18 offenses against all religions within the entire State of Florida for 2015. See the website of the Florida Attorney General, In Hate Crimes in Florida, under Table 5: Hate Crimes Comparison.
Within the entire Brevard County (2015): An unidentified religion had one offense of Destruction / Damage / Vandalism of Property, as reported by the Melbourne Police Dept.
Looks like the citizens of Florida are safe from a wave of hate crimes against religion.
But don’t tell that to the Southern Poverty Law Center (aka ‘fake news’), which is listed in the report’s Appendix 3: Sources of Additional Information.
All of the above, as public records, are attached as a PDF via this link.“
The argument can be made that while Wolfe was completely out of line, his crime had at least an undertone of self-defense in a broad sense. We all know any one of us could be a target of a true Muslim believer, and many don’t like having that element around.
What do you think? Is this punishment too harsh for someone’s out of line retaliation against an Islamic house of worship?

BOMBSHELL News About NY Senator And Muslim… THIS IS SICKENING!!!
Democrats did this!
You may have seen Kristen Gillibrand’s name in news headlines lately as she’s jousting with President Trump on Twitter. She’s consistently made a fool of herself with lame Tweets, acting as though she’s the spokesperson for all women, and living up to the “nevertheless she persisted” nonsense drivel spoonfed by Elizabeth Warren and eaten by feminists. None of this is newsworthy anymore after what reports just revealed about Gillibrand, the New York Democrat Senator, and her Muslim athlete friend accused of molesting a young girl.
Gillibrand enjoyed calling out Al Franken for sexually related accusations (with picture evidence) and suggesting that he resign. She’s attacked President Trump for the accusations he’s been wrapped in, although there’s no evidence. A new report involving Bill O’Reilly suggests that one woman was allegedly offered $200,000 to accuse Trump of sexually related crimes, and there are claims that someone caught it on tape. However, Gillibrand has one more person to call out and the public is wondering what will happen next.
The person she needs to call out now is a Muslim man who was previously denied entry into America, but later gained entry to America thanks to Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer. That same man, 24-year-old Indian snowshoe racer Tanveer Hussain, was accused of molesting an innocent 12-year-old girl. That’s right, folks. Gillibrand more or less vouched for an alleged pedophile child molester who was legitimately accused by a real victim – not accused by a made up victim possibly paid off to make false accusations.
100% Fed Up reports:
“An Indian athlete who overcame a visa denial with the help of U.S. lawmakers and a local mayor to attend the World Snowshoe Championship in New York has been arrested on charges of the abuse of a minor.
It was a long journey for Indian snowshoe champion Hussain and his coach to the World Snowshoe Championships in Saranac Lake, New York last weekend.
The US embassy in New Delhi rejected Tanveer Hussain’s application for a visa so he could compete in the World Snowshoe Championship last month, Fox News reported.
Local officials then appealed for help to Schumer and Gillibrand, and their offices reached out to the New Delhi embassy, which let Hussain successfully reapply for a visa.
Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer, an outspoken opponent of President Trump’s position on stricter immigration policies for immigrants and visa holders coming into the United States, bragged about getting around Trump’s temporary travel restrictions to bring convicted pedophile Tanveer Hussain to New York on his Facebook page”
Seeing pictures of Hussain surrounded by children is repulsive after learning about the accusations of his alleged inappropriate contact with a girl who was only 12-years-old. The victim may have been one of the girls from the Saranac Middle School, and there’s a picture of him surrounded by more kids. You can see he had his arm around one girl, but we are unsure of who the victim is because she’s underage and her identity may be protected.
“The grand jury returned the indictment charging Tanveer Hussain with one count of first-degree sexual abuse and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, a report in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise quoted a press release from Essex County District Attorney Kristy Sprague as saying.
The reckless and irresponsible acts of Democrat legislators like Senator Chuck Schumer, perfectly illustrates why Trump was right about demanding that we put additional vetting measures in place for immigrants.
Hussain and team manager Abid Khan arrived Feb. 23 in the bucolic Adirondacks town, which had been following their visa ordeal and extended them a hero’s welcome. Locals offered congratulations and free lodgings at an inn that in the snow looked like a “fairy tale scene from a movie,” Khan said in a Facebook post.
The “fairy tale” was shattered Wednesday, when Hussain, 24, was arrested and charged with felony sexual abuse and child welfare endangerment, police said.
The parents of the 12-year-old girl allegedly involved said the incident happened Monday, after the end of the three-day snowshoe competition, and reported it to local authorities.”
The girl was reportedly staying at an inn where Hussain was also staying. According to reports, the girl was playing pool one afternoon with some people who may have been around her age of 12-years-old. At some point, it’s reported that the girl was alone with Hussain and they kissed. She was then groped on the outside of her clothing in what is listed as an “intimate” area.
“Chief Charles A. Potthast Jr. of the Saranac Lake Village police force said the girl was playing pool Monday afternoon with other young people at the inn where Hussain was staying.
“There was a moment when the two were alone, and that’s when the incident occurred,” Potthast said. The girl told police there was a “passionate kiss” and that Hussain touched her in an intimate area on top of her clothing.”
You may proceed to vomit and thank the Democrats for helping the alleged criminal attain entry to America and put our innocent children at risk of being molested by a Muslim pedophile.

BREAKING! Trump Just Revealed Shocking Method NYC Terrorists Got Into The USA
This has to end, now!
Just a couple months after a radical Muslim terrorist ran down pedestrians on a New York City street on Halloween, another deranged Muslim named Akayed Ullah attempted to steal more innocent lives in the bustling city. Thankfully, Ullah was not skilled in his terrorist ways, and his homemade pipe bomb that he strapped to his body malfunctioned only injured the would-be suicide bomber.
Now, literally after the smoke has cleared from the failed terrorist attack people are wondering how in the hell this guy entered the United States, and now we may have some answers thanks to President Trump.
There is a reason that President Trump wanted a stricter vetting process for people coming to America from countries with ties to terrorism, and voila, here it is. The 27-year-old Bangladeshi man identified as 27-year-old Akayed Ullah was allowed into the country thanks to a little thing called chain immigration.
You see how this is works is one family member is approved and receives a green card which then the approved family member is allowed to bring their family members with them. The issue with that is that these family members are not properly vetted and then allowed to enter the country without knowing anything about them. So, common sense dictates that these people should be vetted which is precisely what President Trump would like to do, and this could be just the push that is needed to ensure that the vetting process is followed from here on out.
Here is more from Daily Mail:
President Donald Trump said Monday a bomb blast in Manhattan highlights the need for an immigration overhaul – as the man arrested was revealed to be part of a large Bangladeshi family sponsored by his aunt or uncle.
Trump said that the U.S. ‘must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people’ into the country.
The Republican president pointed to his controversial travel ban as an example of the kind of policy that needs to be put in place.
And he called on Congress to end ‘chain migration,’ in which family members are permitted to join relatives who have immigrated.
A Bangladeshi man identified as 27-year-old Akayed Ullah was taken into custody with serious injuries after a pipe bomb he was carrying malfunctioned and exploded prematurely inside a Midtown Manhattan subway station.
He had come from Bangladesh in 2011, apparently with his parents and three or four siblings – all of them sponsored by his aunt or uncle, his immigration status showed.
Ullah is a Bangladeshi national who has been living in the U.S. for the past seven years. Fox News reports that the former taxi driver came to the U.S. on a F-4 visa, a preferential visa for those who have family already in the U.S. The Post says he is a legal green-card holder.
His immigration designation is F-43, which means he claimed the right to a green card because he is the child of the brother or sister of a U.S. citizen.
The U.S. citizen can be newly naturalized. Trump’s statement suggests that Ullah claimed a green card by virtue of a citizen who was also an immigrant.
Records show that Ullah moved to the U.S. from Chittagong, Bangladesh in February 2011 on the F4 visa, and is now a legal green-card owner.
He reportedly immigrated with his parents and three to four siblings. Trump’s statement suggests that one of his parents’ siblings had gained citizenship then petitioned for multiple family members.
Ullah had recently visited his home country on September 8.
Investigators have yet to determine an official motivation for the failed attack, but there have been reports that Ullah was inspired by ISIS.
It was the second time in two months that New York City was the target of a terrorist attack and the first since President Trump sparked Muslim outrage around the world last week by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Now, of course, President Trump will do whatever is in his power to make sure that vetting processes are followed, but when you have liberals like Mayor Bill de Blasio usurping his authority it makes the situation rather difficult.
These liberal morons would rather allow radicalized Muslims to enter the country to create chaos in the name of political correctness instead of protecting the American citizens. That is why it is so important that in the upcoming midterm elections the American vote in people that will support President Trump and his agenda to make America great again before these liberal goons try to ruin it forever.
