Chapter 4, Obama funds $20 Million to immigrant Hamas Refugees to the U.S.

Updated on October 10, 2010

Chapter 4, Obama funds $20 Million to immigrant Hamas Refugees to the U.S.

So you say you’re not a Muslim; why then would you spend $20,000,000 U.S. taxpayer dollars to move members of Hamas, a self proclaimed terrorist organization to the United States. This money is to be spent on the transportation, housing and food for these people! How did he accomplish this? This despicable Obamination was accomplished through the passage of House Bill 1388; which was was passed behind the backs of the unsuspecting American Public coupled with the issuance of an Executive Order.

Did you hear about it, read about it or even notice it on any ticker tape racing across the bottom of your T.V. screen? Of course not, this news did not nor will not make any news. There’s more, in order to supplement the passage of this bill, President Barrack Hussein I’m not a Muslim Obama issued an Executive Order to the Secretary of State’s Office authorizing up to $20,000,000 in federal funds to supplement this bill!

Thus the people that shoot rockets indiscriminately into Israel killing innocent women and children; strap bombs to themselves so as to walk into crowded market places and indiscriminately kill innocent women and children now can flee to this country in order to avoid capture and prosecution and we’ll pay for it! But; read my lips, I’m not a Muslim!

This presidential determination which allows hundreds of thousands of Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States was signed and appears in the Federal Register. It provides a free ticket replete with housing, transportation and food allowances to individuals who have displayed their overwhelming support to the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the parliamentary election of January 2006. If you choose to doubt any of these assertions just click on this link which will take you to the Executive Order issued by our I’m not a Muslim President; www.thefederalregister.com/d.p/2009-02-04-E9-2488 !

So my friends I ask you; when confronted with the facts; in 2007, then presidential candidate Barrack Hussein Obama declared that the U.S.A. was no longer a Christian nation; he followed this declaration up by cancelling the 21st annual National Day of Prayer at the White House under the ruse of not wanting to offend anyone; Five months later, after cancelling the Christian National Day of Prayer, on September 25, 2009, President I’m not a Muslim held a National Day of Prayer for the Muslim religion on Capitol Hill beside the White House from 4am until 7pm. President Hussein Obama played host to over 50,000 Muslims that day in Washington D.C. Thus he prayed with the Muslims but cancelled the Christian day of prayer. He initially weighed in on the Ground Zero Mosque controversy in mid August; his immediate position which proved to be politically inexpedient was the Muslim community had an “inalienable right" to construct the mosque. He went on to elaborate by saying "this country stands for the proposition that all men and women are created equal, that they have certain inalienable rights. One of those inalienable rights is to practice their religion freely. And what that means is that if you could build a church on a site, you could build a synagogue on a site, you could build a Hindu temple on a site, then you should be able to build a mosque on the site." As everyone is aware the issue is not their right to build their mosque it is the chosen location and their proposed name; Cordoba House built on the site of their latest and greatest conquest over American Christianity! And now he issues an Executive Order providing $20,000,000 for housing, transportation and food allowances to individuals who have displayed their overwhelming support to the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas)!

Ask yourself, are you going to continue to believe what he tells you or are you going to believe your LYING EYES!

      Thanks for this expose, Partisan Patriot.

      Well, it says this document signing occurred just a few days after Obama took Office!

      His agenda is clear, isn't it? I don't understand how anyone can still defend his actions.

      No wonder Homeland Security says we have to worry about terrorists living here in America! They're importing them! Do they think we're going to be so terrorized we'll all become muslims? I rather believe we'll scare them, the way we did after 9/11.

      No, I don't question it for sure but I had already read about this. He signed this little gem on January 27, 2009, one week after he was sworn in. The Order provides that we give the UN the money (20.3B) for the stated purpose, but it does not necessarily state that they can come to the US. It is old news (1/2009) BUT given that it occurred within one week of his taking the reins it sort of makes you wonder what things were already brewing on the Muslim Front so to speak. Good hub!

      I have just one question for you Partisan Patriot. How rich are you? Because if you're not very rich and you condemn Obama for making health care more available to Americans, for helping save jobs in Detroit while making sure that America's car industry doesn't die, for trying to see that credit card companies don't continue enslaving poor Americans, for trying to see that oil companies do business in a safe and responsible way while trying to find alternative energy sources and cut down this country's dependence on oil. If you're not a multi millionaire making money out of the misery of the people and the collapse of this country, and you condemn these actions of the President, then something is very wrong.

      My God; you are a walking talking Democratic talking point; all you failed to mention was the word gravitas; guess you couldn’t figure out a way to work it into your diatrod! I am not rich; I’m retire and live comfortably which is why I have a deep visceral hatred for what this president is doing to MY COUNTRY! I worked very-very hard for 37 years to acquire what little I have and do not believe it belongs to anyone but ME! Health Care is not a RIGHT; those that don’t have should choose between the second car or the wide screen T.V. and acquire it. It is not my responsibility to provide them with it! As for the America's car industry they put themselves in to BANKRUPCY by giving in time and time and time again to UNION DEMANDS so yes; they should have been allowed to go into BANKRUPCY! The Phoenix that would have risen from the ashes would have been leaner-meaner and much more competitive! I have 3 credit cards and do not need BIG BROTHER to protect me from my own stupidity; if I can’t afford to buy it I simply don’t buy it! Oil companies are not the villains; those ENVIROMENTALISTS WACCOS that force them to drill further and further out into the ocean are the VILLIANS; then when accidents happen they cry foul; well I for one buy BP Gas every time I fill up! I made what little money I had by myself and don’t need a NANNY STATE to tell me how to spend it!

      Unfortunately adding thirty two million more people to the healthcare insurance is not going to improve the quality of that healthcare.

      For the past fifty years we have had very expensive and many life long treatments developed by big business, the drug companies. Instead of finding cures we have created treatments, and specialists in the medical field. While this has increased the number of diseases found it doesn't retire any of these diseases.

      This is a quality of care issue, most people die of unrelated diseases like pneumonia because the medical care of treating their primary disease actually killed them.

      If the Obama healthcare was so good then Congress, the federal government workforce and Obama himself would be on it. Instead they have expensive premium health benefits paid for by the taxpayers. Of course even premium healthcare has a lack of quality.

      Patriot,

      Keep your calm my friend. Folks like the socialist above (mytipen) are just angry and looking for anyone to blame for their own poor choices and failures. I really like the part about credit card companies "enslaving" Americans. I never knew you were required to get and use credit cards, silly me, I thought it was a choice; if you cannot afford to buy something without using a credit card, and you REALLY want that thing, I always thought you just saved your money THEN made the purchase. When I see comments like that one, the ignorance always stuns me!!

      I have to answer that one, pardon me, when the country bought into the electronic funds transfer idea in the 1980's we were destined to be a country of credit. Even the government went away from the gold backed economy so that they could print money without having any security behind it.

      Not too many people could afford to buy a house without credit. This now is also true of buying your personal vehicles.

      In a recession the country goes on whatever source of income that there is left, and many staples today are bought on credit. Filling up your car with gas is now in the realm of credit card purchase.

      So if this was once again pre 1980 then I would totally agree with your comment.

      I also did a hub on credit cards.

      SheriSapp it's your ignorance that stuns me the most. It's unbelievable that you don't know that you live in a credit based economy where you're required to build credit by borrowing. If you don't have a credit card, how can you build that credit without which you're dead in America. What do you think credit score means? And Partisan patriot, I'm not surprised that you want me locked up, I know that's one of your tea party agenda as expressed by one of your candidates, who suggested holding a certain class of people in camps and teaching them things like personal hygiene. Your New York guber candidate said that.

      Sheri, actually if you were any wiser you'd know that you need a certain level of credit to be able to borrow money from the bank. That level of credit you need to build by using credit cards. But, of course, you're happy being what you are, ignorant and oblivious. And, self acclaimed "old fart" partisan patriot, I'm simply not gonna decend to your name calling level. I just wonder what you'd do when your tea party candidates take over and scrap your social security and medicare like they want to do.

      Just got to love these comments. Hate is alive and well in the USA. First off you can read HR1388 for yourselves. Pull yourself away from the "big" news stations, conservative websites, and do your research. Second, because a fellow AMERICAN disagrees with you, you resort to name calling. And there are NUMEROUS accounts that it is false. AND if you really do your research you will find that money has been allocated before by Pres. G W Bush. So if its wrong for President Obama it was also wrong of President Bush. Also the money isn't handed to Hamas it its given to various organization's like the UN Relief Workers, Red Cross and others.

      Hate has always been alive and well when the very existence of this or any other civilization is at state. It is crunch time my dear; no one is allowed to sit on the sidelines any longer; sorry but everyone has got to strap on the pads and get in the game. You either fight for the America you knew and grew up in or you go back up and sit in the cheap seats while the Socialist roll over the American Team and defeat the last best hope for mankind. If Socialist Quarterback Barrack Hussein Obama is allowed to continue to play with wide receivers Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in a game where they have the numerical advantage then look out for Cap and Trade; Card Check and more and more job killing pieces of legislation being thrown at you from the left!

      But maybe that’s what you want; let’s all sit back and love each other in a wonderful land called Nirvana and those big bad al qaeda types will just go away because they will finally see how NICE WE ARE!

      I’m surprised you didn’t open with Daaaaaarrrrrrrling, you do use that word often don’t you; Daaaaarrrrrling while a cigarette dangles from your mouth held in a 12 inch long holder; but finally to my point!

      First off I love your 2nd amendment reference; you know how beneath you it must be to have to deal on a daily basis with us heathens that cling to our guns and religion while harboring an antipathy towards those (such as yourself no doubt) not like us.

      And how esoteric you must be; “totally not worth the effort it takes to out-think them... which of course is little or no effort”; with that giant intellect you are forced to drag around each day how do you find the time to write all those fascinating screen plays; you have written and sold hundreds of screen plays by now haven’t you? If not I suggest you contact George Soros; he’s looking for Lefty Stooges such as yourself in order to help disseminate his new world order message!

      Hello PP, don't quite your day job because you will never make it as a psychic (psychotic maybe)... not even close on the bio. You don't need to worry about the economy if Boehner has his way, you will have to learn how to trade in yuan however.

      The yuan (sign: ?; code: CNY) is, in the Chinese language, the base unit of a number of modern Chinese currencies. The distinction between yuan and renminbi is analogous to that between the pound and sterling; the pound (yuan) is the unit of account while sterling (renminbi) is the actual currency.

      I'll keep my "socialist" over your communists any day!

      China loves them and they don't care how much of the product imported, produced, sold says "Made in China" as long as they win re-election and get their cut.

      One thing for sure; you somehow blame China for your job being shipped overseas. Ever thought that maybe, just maybe you could have had just a small part to do with it. I have no idea what it was you did but given the nature of all the other jobs that were forced out of this country they were so forced account of confiscatory Union Contracts; i.e. Steel, Automotive, Textile jobs or because of the Liability the companies were forced to incur as they employed a work force which continually fell victim to the Army of Sleaze Bag Attorneys lying in wait every time someone stubbed their toes! Does the current buzz word Mesothelioma ring a bell; a year ago all these class action suit people couldn’t pronounce the word now as the old saying goes; THEY ARE ONE!

      But moving right along; you should pray that Boehner becomes Speaker of the House; at least then we’ll pass bills people actually read before they vote on them instead of the present case wherein Queen Pelosi said you have to pass this bill (Health Care) so we can find out what’s in it? Now that my dear lady typifies the attitude of this Regime you so ardently defend; and Boehners the communist?

      Fortunately you will only keep your socialist a few more weeks; we’re coming to take this country back! Maybe you could write one of your fabulous screen plays about the Second American Revolution; the Revolution of 2010 wherein we Tea Partiers took back Washington and threw the Socialist into the water this time instead of the tea.

      Hello PP, it is very interesting to note that when you can't defend your position with facts and can only resort to hyperbole that you attack your opponent personally. You don't know anything about me as stated before and I have done nothing to warrant such personal assaults, so why stoop so low?

      Shari, it seems to me you would be above this since you, yourself have been the victim of personal assaults and understand how disrespectful and onerous they can be. I am more offended by your cheer-leading than PP's inane and unprovoked personal attacks. You are above this kind of ignorant, offensive.

      PP, your truculent rhetoric is not even note-worthy except that by not calling you out it gives the misconception that it should be tolerated... not!

      Ms Kalmes

      I gotta give it to you; the Democrats should be very proud of how you are applying their play book. Let’s see regarding your, “you can't defend your position with facts and can only resort to hyperbole that you attack your opponent personally remark; you first burst on the scene with; “Hello mkott and mytipen, best to consider the source(s) and walk away, but don't turn your back until you are out of sight... when they don't get their way they threaten to use the "2nd Amendment solution". Nothing hateful or in way that could be misconstrued as a personal attack in those pearls of wisdom; nope just an opinion based on COLD HARD FACTS!

      In the same retort you went on the criticize one of my supporters writing, “Hello Sheri, "unarmed opponent... cute, but all your deathless prose does not a single truthful statement make. The idea that you believe this stuff is what's really scary... ignorant and scary!” Yep you’re right again, nothing personal about the word ignorant; right?

      After licking your wounds for a day and no doubt digging back into your Democratic Talking points you again surfaced with; “Hello PP, don't quite your day job because you will never make it as a psychic (psychotic maybe)”; again my dear Ms. Kalmes you stck to the facts, nothing of an attack nature about calling your opponent psychotic!

      If you actually read my hub you would realize it was riddled with facts, dates and names none of which you challenged. So upon what my dear do you base your assertion “when you can't defend your position with facts and can only resort to hyperbole that you attack your opponent personally?” There has never been one fact challenged by you in your 3 attempts to criticize my hub. You have every right to hold onto your Socialist views and continue to support this Marxist Regime but please, if you return do not level criticisms that are nothing more than self fulfilling prophecies; you haven’t presented one single fact upon which to attack me or my supporters but have from the beginning engaged in Democratic Playbook Chapter 1 defense tactics; don’t engage in a discussion about the facts because you will looses every time. Your views like those espoused by your Regime are indefensible thus you are left with nothing to use but name calling!

      You my dear would be a much better person if you threw off your Democratic shackles and opened your eyes to reality; you’re killing the last greatest hope for mankind but maybe that’s what you’re out to do; like your Messiah’s Preacher said; God Dammed America; America’s Chickeens coming home to roost; is that what you believe?

      Hmmmm Maybe you are off a bit? PP

      Analysis: (UPDATED) This message promotes the false impression that H.R. 1388 (referred to above as "H.B. 1388"), a bill passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama in 2009, allocated taxpayer funds to resettle Hamas refugees in the United States.

      It did not.

      The Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act simply revised and reauthorized existing federal public service programs (such as AmeriCorps) to increase their scope and funding. (It did not, contrary to another false rumor, make public service "mandatory.") Far from being passed "behind our backs," H.R. 1388 was covered by the media during House and Senate debates, passed Congress with bipartisan support, and was signed into law with all the usual public hoopla.

      It had nothing to do with refugees.

      Presidential Determination No. 2009-15

      In January 2009 President Obama signed a completely unrelated memorandum to the U.S. State Dept. (titled "Presidential Determination No. 2009-15" — not an executive order, strictly speaking, but comparable to one) authorizing $20.3 million in humanitarian aid to Palestinian refugees in Gaza.

      As anyone can easily ascertain by simply reading the document (also available here), not to mention the State Dept. press release detailing how the funds will be spent, the memorandum did not order, request, or even propose the resettlement of Palestinian refugees in the United States. In point of fact, it used precisely the same language as humanitarian aid memos signed during the previous administration by President George W. Bush (example #1, example #2, example #3).

      And finally, the itemized list

      The so-called "itemized list" of other presidential actions taken in the early days of the Obama administration is roughly accurate, albeit cherry-picked, decontextualized, and spun in a manner consistent with the overall political bias of the message.
