Refugees placed all around America

    So it is reported in the news 10,000 refugees are being placed all around America if anyone is actually keeping track of that number. I just wonder why they have to be so spread out. Does that make sense? Shouldn't they be in one place so we can keep track of them or any trouble or uprising they may cause? Aren't radicalized ones safer and have a much larger outreach in the way it is being handled by our president who does not recognize or admit to there being any bad guys while they scream death to America?
    Have you seen the list of all the cities they are going to? Are we seeing on the news in these other countries what is about to happen to us?

      I don't know.  Maybe if they are together, it will be easier to recruit others for a major attack.  Is there a best way.  it seems lone wolves pop up all the time - most from here.  sad

        That is true but although the last one was from here he had his loyalties to another country and their religious beliefs and he as all the others made it perfectly clear who their god was.
        The government isn't even denying there will be so many radicals slip in, I am just asking why let them spread out? Makes no sense in our interest for safety.

          10,000 people amongst 300 millions is an insignificant number. Keeping them all cooped up without any real justification is just revisiting upon them the very tyranny that they fled from.

          As usual, I say that the concerns of those on the right of this issue is as usual, a 'red herring'.

            In one place is all cooped up? Wouldn't you think they would prefer being together and what about the things that are happening to the American's they go near for example the little five year old who was molested by two very young refugee boys (not even men!) and they peed in her mouth and beat her to a pulp? Is that OK by you? Clearly from what they are doing around the world they have no respect for anyone and give no thanks but feel they own the world. We don't know one from another and just like the criminals that seep in at the borders, our country is filling with the corruption that is overcoming other countries. Watch the news people somewhere where they give it.

              No, it is not OK. But, are refugees the only ones that do these sorts of things? I am sure that there plenty of examples of homegrown 'yankee doodle dandies' that are doing that and worse right here.

              Yes, if they want to be together, they should have that choice as well. The point is that it is THEIR choice

              Taking one case and making a rule from it is not always the best way to come to a general conclusion.

          I looked at a site that had a map and list of cities the refugees will be placed, but had trouble with the site so I got out too soon to see everything. From what I did see, California looked like it was going to be repopulated heavily.

          Its a part of the grand jihad on America as far as I am concerned, Islam has not hidden their plans. 

          Imama Obama is defying the Supreme Court to deport illegal immigrants.
          But, keep those borders open! 
          Obama wants to bring in more unvetted refugees from the Middle East.
          Hillary wants to bring in 550% more ME refugees than Obama's 10,000.

      Yes. Let's make a section for them in a specific city. Put up a wall and make them stay behind it. Then, we can make them wear some type of thing on their chest to identify them as refugees. Then, we can tattoo something on their arms. In case the sign on their chest falls off. After a while, maybe we can build a railway to move them out to specific camps just for these refugees.

      Or, we can have a little faith in our fellow man.

      I understand your fears. But, we are Americans. We are a nation descended from immigrants and refugees.

        We are legal Americans and all of my ancestors were too. All went by the book because it was law and law use to mean something. (There really are reasons for those laws and as we are having new diseases come back in that had been wiped out might give you one little clue.)

            I am not saying they are not, (although against the will of most Americans) I am just saying it seems to be in a very suspicious pattern not in the best interest of American's safety, but perhaps there are enough of people such as yourself that would like them in your back yard, not knowing who you have. Why act so naive? I have a legitimate question and you sure aren't offering any answers, just defensive rhetoric I am so sick of hearing.

              I believe this is the first time I have responded in any way to your fears about refugees, but perhaps I have forgotten about a multitude of responses that you are so "sick of hearing."  Shrug.

              I don't know anything about anyone who moves into my back yard, until I meet and get to know them.  Believe me, the guy down the street who has an electric fence around his yard, surveillance cameras on every corner of his house, and sets traps for neighborhood cats sets off a few red flags in my mind, but then, he's not an immigrant and not a Muslim.  Lily-white and Christian.

              I just think that there are criminals and crazy ideologues among any group of legal immigrants, Muslim or otherwise, just as there are criminals and crazy ideologues born and bred right here in the good ol' US of A.

      Jackie, I see your points.  Instead of permitting refugees to come to this country & other industrialized countries, why don't governments get unified & implement plans to improve the status of those in such afflicted countries.   America & Europe have their own problems, they don't need to be inundated with more refugees.

    Talk about affirmative action ;

    If you look at the frequency of  spot geographic immigration , Jackie Lynnley is right , small towns  and inner cities have been chosen by this  administration to receive these immigrants AND its been happening for a few years . In New Hampshire , the percentage of refugees with TB alone was over thirty percent ,   Minnesota   22 %   ,Google  it up !     The Obama administration should be impeached   for allowing such things to happen .   There is a concerted effort to subjugate the constitutional protection  of the US from foreign immigration . Oh that's right  ,  maybe its that a black , half black or whatever minority the race of the president is,  cannot be impeached ?

      I found this at FB today too so alarming but I have read more like it. Very scary stuff.
      "UN tactical vehicles were seen rolling down Interstate 81 in Virginia today. The Obama regime was recently reported to have asked the UN to help "fight" conservative "extremism" in America. This, after they have amassed and stockpiled millions of weapons and rounds of ammo around the country while arming thousands of federal agents including IRS, SSA, EPA, DEA ... etc. They have ordered the construction of thousands of coffins. There is also a hard and fast push to disarm Americans going on in Washington. People better start asking questions and demanding answers."

        Hello Jackie, as a forum old-timer I am glad to see new faces participating and expanding our discussions, and like you, I too am alarmed. But my alarm is the acceptance I see of outlandish and frequently pure BS blurbs like this one you posted from facebook.

        If I wrote that I was at an Obama rally and actually saw a scaly gray tail protruding from his suit pants, would you feel comfortable relaying that it "has been reported" that Pres. Obama is really an alien from another star system? Would that alarm you too?

        If all the farmers in a local co-op pooled their seed orders to get a better price, instead of each placing their own small order at regular retail prices, would you see that as an indication that the farmers were stockpiling for Armageddon?

        Could FEMA's mass purchase of small mobile homes really be a preparation for mass interment camps instead of the smokescreen excuse that they are for disaster relief?

        And... if there is any credibility to these type of declarations, wouldn't it be body bags and multi-body containers that would be more logical purchases than individual coffins?

        But... there was one valid point in your blurb... "people better start asking questions..."

              I agree with you GA.  I commented about that yesterday when someone mentioned statements Obama made in his book.  There is no doubt he made the statements.  I just wonder what the context was.  I have been taken out of context many times myself.

              Example:  A principal called me to the office because a student said I was calling her Miss Piggee.  I explained that that is a technique I use to get kids to learn to sing in head voice.  The student had been bullyed by other students in the class who were calling her Miss Piggee. Evidently when they heard me say Miss Piggee, the student thought I was in on calling her Miss Piggee.

              We should all be interested in the context.

              Thank you!

                  I know that Obama cannot be trusted based on my personal observation.

                  1.  When he ran for president the first time, he sat at Saddleback Church with Pastor Rick Warren and said he believes marriage is between a man and a woman.  I saw it personally.
                  2.  I've personally heard him mention the Roman Crusades and compare what happened between the 11th and 15th centuries to the Islamic terrorism that is going on now.
                  3.  I watched him say it's time for same sex couples to have the same rights as others.
                  4.  I've heard him say that he doesn't go to church because he doesn't want to "disrupt" things when all presidents I remember had no problem going to church with secret service. 
                          I'm not saying he should go to church.  I'm saying he should just say, "I don't go."
                  5.  I saw him light up the White House in rainbow colors in celebration
                  6.  I burned as I heard him arrogantly tell school districts they won't get federal funding if they don't allow people to go to the bathroom they want to go to based on how they feel.

                  I don't know how much of the video is true but I do have enough information from personal observation/witness to know that he can't be trusted.  He has a few months left.  Thank God.  My problem is it looks like Hillary Clinton will vigorously extend his legacy.

                  If some one has actual facts about the meeting that was held and didn't pass it on, they should be prosecuted.

I know I probably do go off in left field (or is it right?lol) many times when others try to defend him after all he has done to this country which I truly believe is beyond repair and I feel doubly bound to warn about him since I was so blind to vote for him the first time. Proudly even, but I regret that day so much!
                    It is such a shame for the black race I think that he really and truly is not black but then maybe that will be best when everyone sees him for what he really is.

                So I figure you aren't talking about a 2 year old story about a personnel change, so I don't know what to look for. I can't make-up any credible sounding Conservative excuse until I at least know some details.

                  Has Obama been questioned about Benghazi? We know he has not. Advised by his lawyers or by his own decision, what does it matter? he won't talk, much to be uncovered. It will be eventually. We all know the lies he and Hillary ran out telling about a video...I am assuming you no longer believe that?

                    Jackie , once this president is out , all truths will be quickly forthcoming !  Like Kennedy, like Nixon and  Lincoln ,     The difference .   Pres. Obama's will be quicker and more revealing of his utter failures as a leader , as a social reformer , as a New World order ordained King !         But Accomplishments :

                    Thanks for the help Jackie. But none of the links you provided, (the first two were only about Gowdy's investigation, nothing said to support your claim that Pres. Obama has "lawyeredup."), and a sub-link in your 3rd link was the closest I could find relative to your claim.

                    It was a link to a Politico article that included this explanation;
                    "...Neil Eggleston, counsel to the president, blasted the committee for sending the president a list of questions about the attack — an inquiry the administration deemed inappropriate and a partisan attempt to frame the White House as uncooperative.

                    Eggleston has encouraged Obama not to answer the committee’s questions “because of the implications of his response on the constitutional separation of powers,” according to a letter sent Saturday to Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) and obtained by POLITICO.

                    “If the president were to answer your questions, his response would suggest that Congress has the unilateral power to demand answers from the president about his official acts,” the letter reads.

                    Eggleston also accused the panel of asking questions it already knew the answer to — something the committee denies. "


                    I completely agree, Gowdy's efforts to question the president were a last-ditch political stunt to save face regarding his failed investigation.

                    Of course you won't agree with that because you have already determined that Secretary Clinton and Pres. Obama are maliciously culpable, and their actions to cover it up make Watergate look like a kid's game. As your links say; two years, multiple investigations and congressional hearings, unlimited witnesses, and $7 million dollars just aren't enough time or resources to get the real truth.

                    That may sound as if I am defending them. I am not. I think Benghazi could have been avoided. I think the "it was the video" story was arrogantly stupid, but that does not equate to criminal culpability in my mind.

                    So there is my answer, as asked. You have not supported your declaration that Pres. Obama has "lawyeredup." Conversely you have demonstrated the bias of your perspective. Facts don't matter, you know what you know.

    I still find myself amazed that so many Americans voted for  president Obama  knowing nothing at all about his  ideals , his  beliefs of country , his patriotism level , His religion ,His world views obviously have always outweighed his patriotism . Patriotism ,  Now there's the new dirty word !     Americans on the left ,obviously  so shallow in  political knowledge  ,  voted for an empty suit !   

    America elected a Fad ! In fact ,   Most Americans wouldn't know the characteristics of leadership if it bit them on the A&&.    The  leadership  Obama shows , has lead us right into a one world  view of politics .  Get ready for that . Nationalism , patriotism , belief in god and country, these are now dirty words ,  the projecting image of weakness , ignorance and closed minds !  While liberalism , socialism , new age pseudo-intellectualism are to be the norm .

      I think people voted for Obama for the same reasons they are rallying around Trump. Obama appeared to be hope for change. No one really knew what direction he was headed but anyway other than the way Washington was going was appealing.

      ahorseback, it is obvious that you have passionate convictions, but, isn't there anything that would cause you to look deeper than your first gut-reactions?

      I can see some PC benefit from some Liberals dreaming of the prospect of electing a black president, but that's about it. My perspective is that there were several much more powerful forces that propelled candidate Obama to the presidency;

      1. He did get some black voters to vote just because they could vote for a black man.
      2. He had three JFK-type attributes; the attraction of youth, extreme charisma, and supreme oratory talent.
      3. He was promising what the American voter wanted to hear.
      4. He had the political and financial support to beat Hillary's political machine.

      Of course, if you are right, then I am in denial and the above reasons didn't matter at all. But I am unconvinced. I think I am right and your are wrong.

      ps. shouldn't it have been a "tide" of PC? "Whim' just doesn't seem to carry the weight of your contention?

        Barrack Hussein Obama does not have a JFK bone in his body. Even while I voted for him in ignorance I still never saw either of the two great Kennedy brothers in him anywhere. Even in their failures these were men of character and yes even honor of which Obama could not come close to.

          I doubt you would contest that he was a youthful candidate compared to his rivals. Do you?

          Do you not see him as charismatic, even if you vehemently disagree with his politics?

          Do you really not think he is a talented speaker that can reach an audience of listeners, regardless of whether you agree with his politics or not?

          Notice I did not attribute JFK's character or motives to him, but aren't all three of those attributes I did mention part of the JFK mold?

          If I had said he was black like Martin Luther King, would you have felt obliged to tell me I was wrong, he was no Martin Luther King?

          There is much more meat here than before, but I am almost incredulous that you think he has no speaking ability. My perspective is that you don't have to be an Obama supporter, (and I am not), to see how powerful his speaking abilities are. He is one of the most talented natural speakers I have seen in a long time.

          That could be a misconception on my part, but I don't think so. Maybe others will chime in on their opinion of his speaking abilities.

            GA that speaks to the racism that does exist.  I don't know how it could be determined that 90% of African Americans voted for Obama.  Watching television/reading the news indicates that most Black people are criminals.  That is shown because people will watch it.  That is news!  The people who say things like that can't name 10 Black people that they personally know are criminals.  If they want to do so, they can name at least 10 Black people that work and take care of their families.  The majority of them do not live in the inner city as I stated before.

            Racism is not just saying "I hate Black people" or I hate white people."  It's more indirect.  Black people are criminals.  Black people are not as smart as white people.  White people don't have any rhythm.  Mexicans are illegals.

            Those are reasons to try to justify hate.  It doesn't contribute to the good of the country.  Unfortunately, many "professed" Christians spout this logic.  Many non-Christians are more amenable.  When people get upset about the discussion of these things, they need to ask themselves within, "Do I hate?"

    I can emphasize with the innocent refugee. But, because of the Moslem belief of "destroy the infidel" (there are 54 passages in the Koran which say destroy) I am not in favor of these refugees coming into America. They will force their belief system in our society.

    These refugees are being spread around to make for easier pollution of the American people. America is in trouble.

      I wonder if the Muslims consider the rationale for following Islam.  Islam started after Christianity so what is their basis for calling them infidels.  Well, as I understand it, all people who are not Muslims are infidels.  I can't swear to it.

      I pray for the refugees and people tormented and killed in those countries.  I'm looking at what as happened in Turkey now.  I was felling badly because they were reluctant to take in refugees who had ISIS on their tails.  I really thing the Imams need to rethink their religion.
