    HB 1388 PASSED

    Whether you are an Obama fan, or not, EVERYONE IN THE U. S. needs to know....

    Something happened.... H.R. 1388 was passed, behind our backs. You may want to read about it. It wasn't mentioned on the news - just went by on the ticker tape at the bottom of the CNN
    screen.

    Obama funds $20M in tax payer dollars to immigrate Hamas Refugees to the USA . This is the news that didn't make the headlines.....

    By executive order, President Barack Obama has ordered the expenditure of $20.3 million in "migration assistance" to the Palestinian refugees and "conflict victims" in Gaza .

    The "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.

    I wonder how many agents Al Qaeda will smuggle in disguised as "political refugees" from the "oppression" of the supposedly evil Israeli government.  This is exactly why we need to curb the power of the President.  He is no longer even making a pretense of giving people a choice, he's acting like King Franklin the First.

    Hey, I trust him.  Afterall he's done everything else he's promised to do hasn't he?  Wait a minute, you said Obama right?  Sorry, my bad.  Oh lord, we're in trouble.  He's probably planning to bring all the terrorists to this country so there's less travel involved in fighting them.

    It is amazing that the media has ignored this bill entirely.

    No it's not, the media is filled with Progressive airheads.  You might find the following article interesting.  It explains why both Communists and Fascists loved inventions like the radio, film and television.  It allowed them to control the content.  It also shows why current communications technology is the bane of autocratic or dictatorial regimes:  http://mises.org/story/3060

    All the people we already have unemployed, Lockheed just laid off more here in GA and he wants to bring more people into the states. Oh, jeez!

      Lockheed isn't the only defense contractor laying off, but they are the #1 defense contractor.   

      This is sad.

    Oh no, Lynne, those people are going straight on the dole and probably given "oh I'm sorry" American citizenship thus ensuring that they will vote for the "proper" Progressive politician.  It's amazing to me that the American taxpayer is allowing these criminals to set things up so that their vote counts less than someone who mooches off the system.

      According to this snopes report, most of the information is well over a year old.

        I received the email this morning I traced it back to a posting on Yahoo.  I really cannot find much else about it which is why I posted and asked if anyone knew anything about it.

        The snopes article seemed the most relevant.

          I understand.  I received an email the other day that was predicting major terrorist attacks in major cities across the USA, as well as in rural areas.  It seemed like an urgent warning, until I realized there were no specifics given about the predictors 'success' record -- where were the links? 

          I looked it up on Snopes and found that the e-mail was more than 2 years old. 

          I am not saying there is not truth to what is said to have been passed, but major details are missing.  Now I am off to look at the Campaign for Liberty link.

    Huh, well that should serve as a warning against a knee-jerk reaction.  Still one has to wonder if all that money has a long term beneficial effect.  Snopes mentioned previous administrations doing that for Somalia, Chad and Sudan and those places are still basket cases.  It might be a good idea to, I don't know, make sure our money is being spent in ways that actually make a long term difference, not just make us "feel good" about "doing something".  If, indeed, there is anything we can do in those countries.

    The mainline media only reports information and news that is slanted. Bias is obvious. It's not supposed to reflect in the attitude of the reporters, but it does. This is scary news.....we're being set up for the big whammy. I'm not in denial. Those who are are in for a big surprise.

    At some point these types of policy dicisions have got to crossover into aiding and abetting the enemy don't ya think?
