What do you think? Is Obama right about bringing in refugees to America?
According to State Department numbers, 2,184 Syrian refugees have been allowed into the United States since 2011. Of that number, only 53 were Christians. Not 53 percent, mind you. 53 individuals total. Compare that to 2098 Muslims. Granted, the country is majority Muslim, but the difference in demographics is not nearly that stark. Christians make up about 10% of the Syrian population and they make up only 2% of the refugees permitted into the U.S.
But even those demographics don’t tell the whole story because Christians make up a disproportionate share of people fleeing the war-torn country. According to several charity groups, Christians may make up as much as 23% of Syrian refugees.
How can Obama preach religious inclusiveness when presiding over such a biased refugee program? Well, he gets away with it because the State Department is sticking closely to the legal definition of a refugee, limiting it to individuals in danger of being massacred by the Assad regime. Since Christians are more likely to be butchered by Assad’s enemies, including ISIS, the Obama administration feels no compulsion to protect them.
Contrast this with the refugees coming in from South America, where the administration feels perfectly fine in disregarding federal law governing asylum. In this instance, Obama is more than willing to overlook specific requirements while allowing in thousands of people who are fleeing nothing more than economic uncertainty.
The fee would be phased in over five years and would provide $20 billion per year for traffic reduction, investment in transit systems and other modes of transport such as high-speed rail, the White House said. It would also offer $10 billion to encourage investment in clean transport at the regional level
Obama is expected to formalize the proposal Tuesday when he releases his final budget request to Congress. However, the proposal immediately faced resistance from Republicans.
“Once again, the president expects hardworking consumers to pay for his out of touch climate agenda,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said in a statement, arguing it would lead to higher energy prices and hurt poor Americans.
Ryan went on to describe Obama’s plan as “dead on arrival” in Congress.
“The good news is this plan is little more than an election-year distraction. As this lame-duck president knows, it’s dead on arrival in Congress, because House Republicans are committed to affordable American energy and a strong U.S. economy,” Ryan said.
The White House claims the added cost of gasoline would incentivize the private sector to reduce the reliance on oil and to increase investment in clean energy technology. The plan also saw opposition from advocates for the oil industry, who warned it would only harm consumers.
“The White House thinks Americans are not paying enough for gasoline, so they have proposed a new tax that could raise the cost of gasoline by 25 cents a gallon, harm consumers that are enjoying low energy prices, destroy American jobs and reverse America’s emergence as a global energy leader,” API President and CEO Jack Gerard:
“On his way out of office, President Obama has now proposed making the United States less competitive.” Gerard said.

CNSNews – In a speech at a mosque in Baltimore, Md., on Wednesday, President Barack Obama said the best way to fight terrorism is to show that the U.S. does not “suppress Islam” and to deny legitimacy to terrorist organizations like the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) also known as ISIL.
“The best way for us to fight terrorism is to deny these organizations legitimacy and to show that here in the United States of America, we do not suppress Islam. We celebrate and lift up the success of Muslim-Americans. That’s how we show the lie that they’re trying to propagate,” Obama said.
“We shouldn’t play into terrorist propaganda, and we can’t suggest that Islam itself is at the root of the problem. That betrays our values,” he added.

Have You Noticed ??? Coincidence? Or….What?
All of a sudden
Before Obama there was virtually no visible presence of Islam in America .
Now, why is it so important for Obama to disarm America? Why? Because a disarmed country is ripe for takeover by the Muslim Army that Obama has imported into the United States. Nikita Krueschev, the Russian Dictator who visited the USA in the 1950s said the USA could never be occupied by any army because of it’s citizen Army. Obama knows this fact and is doing everything within his power to disarm our Citizen Army.
Obama won’t even say the words “Islamic Terrorist”, WHY?”..
“The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam” Barack Obama
