With Obama’s last SOTU Address coming up on Tuesday (whew), there are no doubt many things Obama sees as his accomplishments as he pushes his ideology, facts be damned. As I finish out this week, I have a few more “accomplishments” I imagine WON’T make it into this Address.
Let’s begin with this latest newsflash about the TERRORISTS coming through our Southern border into San Diego. I am not being hyperbolic. This is the real deal. From IJ Review:
A letter from a San Diego congressman to the Department of Homeland Security says that several dozen Pakistani and Afghan men have come into the United States through “a Tijuana-based human smuggling pipeline” since September, and two of those men have ties to terrorist activity, the San Diego Reader first reported.
In a letter from Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) to Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, the two men in their 20’s were among those found during a recent increase of “military age” men “carrying U.S. cash” apprehended on the Tijuana-San Diego border. The letter says one individual had “associations with a known or suspected terrorist,” while the other was flagged for “derogatory information.”
The Reader reports:
“Until November, they would enter in groups and seek a federal agent to surrender to, according to union officials. It is believed that they did this because illegal entrants who are not Mexican citizens and who are deemed to not pose a significant threat are generally given a date to appear at immigration court and then released on their own recognizance.”
But these days, the Middle Eastern migrants are more likely to be found further inland, traveling alone. […] (Click here to read the rest.)
That’s just freakin’ awesome, not. As many of us have predicted, the porous Southern borders are putting this nation at GREAT risk. That is simply unacceptable. The terrorists are literally being smuggled into this country, and then, given a green light to stay. And I am guessing THIS newsflash won’t make it into the SOTU.
And speaking of Afghans, Sharyl Attkisson had a report on Full Measure regarding the Afghan Air Force, and how much of our money we have poured into getting it, um, off the ground. Suffice it to say, it was a “boondoggle,” to use Attkisson’s word. From Full Measure:
“Hundreds of millions of dollars” wasted on this. Your taxpaying dollars literally being wasted by this Administration. Meanwhile, one of Obama’s “accomplishments” is to cut back OUR military in a BIG way. Holy smokes.
Speaking of Sharyl Attkisson, this coming Sunday, she will feature a report entitled, “Benghazi: Rescue Interrupted.” If your local stations don’t carry her program, you can stream it online at FullMeasure.news. It is timely indeed considering the release the following week of “13 Hours.”
About those refugees this Administration wants to bring in. We have all heard how the Obama Administration has ASSURED us they will vet these people thoroughly, so no worries about who they bring in. I assume, then, that Obama will NOT be referencing the two refugees from Iraq allowed in to the United States who were just indicted on terrorism charges to make his point. From the Daily Caller:
Two Iraqi refugees living in the U.S. have been arrested in Sacramento and Houston on federal terrorism charges and for lying to immigration officials.
Twenty-three-year-old Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab and 24-year-old Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, both Palestinians born in Iraq, were charged in separate cases on Wednesday.
Unsealed indictments released on Thursday by the Justice Department show that both men were born in Iraq and are of Palestinian background. Both were also granted refugee status as part of a program started for Iraqis in 2007. […] (Click here to read the rest.)
But hey – let’s just trust this Administration to keep us safe from admitting terrorists in via the Refugee Program, even when ISIS claims to have infiltrated the refugees we are letting in. I am SO sure this will be in the Top Five “accomplishments” Obama will tout, right? Yeah. Sure.
In all seriousness, one thing that for sure WILL be in Obama’s SOTU Address is his threat to members of his own party who do not capitulate to his dictatorial stance on gun control. From The Hill:
President Obama said Thursday evening that he will not campaign for any candidate that doesn’t back up his efforts on gun control, a major focus of his last year in office.
“I will not campaign for, vote for or support any candidate, even in my own party, who does not support common-sense gun reform,” Obama wrote in a New York Times op-ed.
Obama’s remarks came shortly before a town hall Thursday evening on CNN where he’ll discuss his executive actions on guns unveiled earlier this week. […] (Click here to read the rest.)
Wow. So much for the People’s Representatives Representing the People, huh? If they don’t acquiesce to His Majesty, he will dropkick them to the curb. What a guy. What a President for All Americans. What a temper-tantrum throwing toddler.
What a happy day it will be for many of us when he leaves office…
