OK, so you fall back on cold war policy re: Russians. Very few allowed in unless they are known quantities. The unknowns are subject to seclusion and interrogation for all intel and verification until the intelligence services are satisfied, and then they are watched for years after.

13 So Trump is rising and the GOPe is still befuddled. Meanwhile GOPe wunderkind Paul Ryan is passing a bill that says the FBI, DHS, and someone have to certify each "refugee." In other words, nothing is changing just an extra sign-off. It's like telling a manufacturer that the CEO has to sign-off on every single item produced but if the CEO is wrong nothing happens.

How about we don't let any in, tell the Emirate and Saudi's here are your refugees, settle the Christians in Lebanon and send the Muslims in Lebanon to Syria? Cheaper and there is then a Christian land in the Middle East. Tell the Russians to have at it in Syria. It's a mess anyways, why not dictate some outcomes.

I suppose we'll be hearing that repeated a lot in the future. Obviously they think this is an insult.
They still don't get that it is has been Trump's defiant, blunt-talk attitude that attracts people - he is a middle-finger to the GOP not some conservative values godsend.

In medieval/tudor times, they built seats on bridges or on the banks so you could sit and shit.

46 Idiot eGOPérs can't figure out why, whenever they say shit that will surely piss off conservatives, e.g.; Ryan on terrorist refugees, why conservatives are pissed off and why so many conservatives will defect and vote for whoever the hell they want and not fall into the same trap they have fallen into consistently for the last 20 years.

I'm speaking only for myself, but I presently intend on voting for who the hell ever will do the most damage to the Republican party because for me, it isn't just can the country survive Hillary, it's can the country survive the present crop of corrupt politicians from both parties who are only in this for their own self interest. So for me, if the GOPe intends on giving me a choice between death by slow cooker and death by inferno, I'm going with the quicker method.

How do refugees skip that (and 35 other nations between Syria and the U.S.) and go straight to Akron or St. Louis?

Mark Levin was talking about this yesterday on his show - being pushed by McCaul in Texas, I think he said.

According to McCaul, the point of the bill is not to stop the refugee invasion, but to grind the whole process to a halt.

To paraphrase Levin: Oh, yeah, cause all three of these guys - appointed by His Majesty - aren't going to sign off pronto and will actually do their jobs. McCaul, another GOPe con artist.

Why is it so hard for the GOPe to do the right thing?

59 Is it out of the question that Obama thinks of ISIS as a tool in his efforts to destabilize Assad, and these bombings are unfortunate nuisances that come with that strategy? How else can there be any targets for the French to hit if we have truly been bombing ISIS with the intent to take ISIS out for over a year?

President Obama, August 2011: "We have imposed sanctions on President Assad and his government. ... We have coordinated closely with allies and partners from the region and around the world..."

Could ISIS be one of those "partners" from the region?

Adirondack, you've touched on something key here (Polliwog did too up above). Just the latest, if a jaw-dropping, example of so little information making it into the "news".

Syria has been in chaos for years - years. Most of the refugees from there crossed the border (thus becoming refugees) years ago. They haven't been living in mid-air or on the clouds since then. They've been living (mostly) in Turkey, Jordan, and Lebanon.

And Adirondack as you say, it's a safe bet that US $ have been providing the bulk of the support to them (via UNHCR and NGOs).

There is no visible reason that these refugees now, suddenly, should/must/desire to emigrate out of their region. Standard refugee relief strategy is to keep them as close to home as possible, to facilitate reconstruction etc.

Admissions to the US, the entirely separate issue of *asylum* for persecuted religious minorities (cough cough Christians Yazidis cough cough), are another question. But the macro issue here is just completely unaddressed. And, with our non-existent press and brain-dead and supine GOP, that's how it will stay. Amazing.

Ted Cruz has introduced a bill he calls The Terrorist Refugee Infiltration Prevention Act


so Ryan's bill, Feinsteins bill, and Cruz'z bill

Ryans bill purports to suspend the refugee program and requires the FBI, CIA and NSA to approve a refugee before they are admitted

Feinsteins bill prohibits European passport holders from entering the US if they have been to Iraq or Syria in the last five years

Cruz's bill allegedly will immediately bar refugees to the United States from any country, such as Iraq or Syria, that contains territory substantially controlled by a foreign terrorist organization. The bill sunsets after three years so that Congress can reevaluate the global situation and either let the bill expire or reauthorize it with necessary modifications in light of changed circumstances.

so there you have it

I like all three bills

Turning actors into pundits and news readers into experts - Shep Smith, Brian Williams, Chris Mathews, Dan Rather (that list could extend out forever) - has, in my weak mind, been the source of so much ignorance in this country that the damage is incalculable, in my weak minded opinion. These people are the least intellectually equipped to provide accurate analysis and commentary on virtually any subject as anyone on the planet, yet they have free reign to spout their idiocy on any subject for which they know nothing about. And as we all know, the delicate liberal minds among us will believe anything that anyone with even a ounce of celebrity says about anything.

Who can make sense out of Nazi philosophy? Hitler and his cronies made stuff up on the fly for the simple reason the boot on the face doesn't need a rationale. By their lights, it just needs to be.

It won't pass Congress but neither will anything limited government conservatives support so you may as well use any press coverage it gets to explain how actual conservative policies will decentralize power and how limiting the federal government is a good thing. Of course Paul Ryan and McConnell would never let anything as "radical" as that even come up for a vote because the GOPe leadership and those who fund the party aren't interested in limiting government.

It's actually part of the refugee law.

One of the criteria for designation as a refugee is that they belong to a persecuted religious minority.

Then I expanded the view, thinking that Google was trying to cover up the details of street life in the WB. Expanded more and realized something even more profound.

A good indicator that a country is a hopelessly fucked hell-hole is the absence of Google Streetview. Almost every Mideast and African country has none. Almost all of the mohammedan world has none (with the notable exception of Indonesia). China and the Norks.....nope.

Posted by: Stringer Davis
-------------------------------------------------------

Yeah. But see, not even that stupid maneuver should be able to gain any traction, even though of course it will.

Here's why: if any Christians factions NOW were committing numerous terrorist acts in the name of Hitler, we should either stop them, if they are here, or not allow them to emigrate. Now that we know ISIS is smuggling in operatives through "syrian refugees" we should put a stop to that flow NOW.

As far as I can tell, the left's argument is "some people a long time ago that had X in common with you did some bad things, so to be fair you have to let our current favored group do bad things to you".

It's a ridiculous non-sequitur. If the people in the past did bad things and got away with it, then unfortunately those misdeeds will go unpunished. You cannot punish the innocent who are living TODAY simply because they have some morally irrelevant attribute (like skin color or a professed religion, though Hitler was a secularist) in common with people who lived a long time ago.

Clarke is 1000X smarter than both Hannity and Williams but did not bring up the obvious point that its a shitty comparison because no Jews were committing terrorist acts or threatening to commit them on US soil. Instead, Hannity kept yammering on about women not being allowed to drive under Shaaria law.

Startling data was released Wednesday morning showing Twitter support for ISIS is running high in the US, according to a Brookings Institute survey.

The US is ranked fourth in favorable tweets supporting ISIS, behind Saudi Arabia, Syria and Iraq.

286 Hitler despised Christianity because he felt it was weakened, tainted, and corrupted by St. Paul (a jew). I am not sure that he ever explained what pre-Pauline Christianity was but conspiracy theorists never have all the answers.

He also reportedly bemoaned the fact that the Germans were converted to Christianity rather than Islam as he felt that Islam was more befitting to the strength and warrior vitality of the Deutschen Volk.

289 Ayn Rand had a sympathetic priest in her early draft. She hated the pro-fascist Father Coughlin so much that she wrote it out, and went her version of "Full Atheist." People who don't like her for her a-theism don't remember Moral Re-Armament.

As apolitical as Raymond Chandler was on national issues, he actually wrote a pro-Coughlin spiel into the mouth of a nincompoop, just to make the point.

I beg to differ.

The left loves to lie; we're seeing it in action now. Once the disinformation surfaces, there will be a desire to ignore it, downplay it, or discredit it.

Once it became known that misinformation was being pumped in, the left will happily hide behind it.

356 "Close some mosques" is not the same as "round them all up." Could come to that, though, eventually. I don't see a thing wrong with the spying. Dangerous; works.

Synagogues beat them all to the punch, with the famous "Fig Tree Letter." After that, every faith had their turn in the barrel of suspicion and close scrutiny. Some of it was justified. The sons of the prophet, knowing that they are right as usual, somehow have believed they would avoid this.

what pre-Pauline Christianity was but conspiracy theorists never have
all the answers.



He also reportedly bemoaned the fact that the Germans were converted
to Christianity rather than Islam as he felt that Islam was more
befitting to the strength and warrior vitality of the Deutschen Volk.

.Hitler detested the Arab race as he called them. He held them in lower esteem that the Russians and only grudgingly let the Heer raise a couple of small Units of Arab Muslims that saw no significant combat. He allegedly referred to them as apes or monkeys quite often.

*****************
Not at all. I totally get that part. But one of the points of the Prodigal Son story is that the father never stopped loving the son. The father did not kick him out of the family, and when the son asked to be taken back into the house as a servant, welcomed him as a son, not as a servant. The fatrher did not decide that the son was not a member of the family, and other members of the family did not decide that the son was not a member of the family. Only the prodigal son could make that decision. While he may have rejected the family at first, he came back. There is always hope where there is love.

Other people's luck:

A young woman turned the evening commute into a rather thrilling adventure Wednesday, stripping down to her underwear while strolling down the middle lanes of the Bay Bridge.

The striptease caused quite a backup as California Highway Patrol vehicles flashed lights and cars swerved around trying to avoid the strolling exhibitionist, who was eventually arrested and taken to San Francisco General Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.

"At the end, she was either naked or down to just a bra and panties," CHP Officer Van Eckhardt said. "It ended up slowing down traffic significantly. She was not the happiest person to go for a ride. She was enjoying her walk, I guess."

391 "Trump is going to be the GOP nominee. He's going to win the Presidency in a landslide. If the GOP was smart, they would ride his coat tails to an even
larger congressional majority and hopeful hold and gain numbers in the
Senate."

I was musing about various Trump scenarios, and one of the plausible ones is a no-coattails Trump victory. Imagine enough voters, including irregular/infrequent voters, who are sufficiently disgusted with the GOP establishment that they walk into the booth, pull _one_ lever, for Trump the outsider, and leave.

Reagan exerted a similar dynamic with some fed-up voters in 1980. They voted for him. But not for other downticket Republicans. Which meant that in his first term, he had to cut deals with Democrats on the Hill to a much larger extent than he would have preferred. In 1984, Reagan's regular refrain was "Don't send me back alone!"

_____________________

I don't think it had anything to do with Reagan specifically, in fact he actually came in with a Republican Senate. That was just an era where Americans really were swing voters, Nixon also won 49 states and had a Democrat dominated Congress as well.

Americans trusted Republicans better on National Security during the Cold War so they dominated until the Soviet Union fell, but registered Democrats far outnumbered registered Republicans so they were the de facto governing party.

454 There was a dynamic in the past where voters seemed to want Democrats in congress - particularly the kind that would hand out more goodies - and a Republican in the White House. For a very long time, Republicans outnumbered Democrats in the presidency by a significant margin, even counting individual terms. I think it had to do with wanting goodies but wanting a strong national defense.

Now its kind of in reverse. People want local GOP, GOP in congress, and democrat in the White House. I can only speculate, but as a culture we've shifted to the point that instead of wanting liberty or death, we've decided that absolutely nothing is worth dying for, so we want guys that will not ever get us into war.

True story: I was at a Cruz fundraiser for his Senate primary campaign, and someone asked him who, other then his parents, had the most influence on his political philosophy, and he went into this long-winded answer, which I'm sure was very sincere, about a junior high school teacher. I told him afterwards, "Mr. Cruz, that was a batting practice pitch. This is Texas Republican primary. Your two answers are Ronald Reagan and my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, or both."

472 Crap. South Korea is getting 'refugees.'



135 have been processed, with 65 more to go. They've been given 'quasi-refugee' status which means they have to leave at some point.



They also flew into the country and apparently have money according to the article I read. So Korea won't be giving away free sh!t and getting more refugees.



So overall, not too bad. Israel, South Korea - two of the smartest countries on the planet. I quickly scanned through my head for other countries to add other Western countries to the list but the rest are too suicidal to make the cut.

"No Muslims, Know Peace"


Frankly, I'd love to see a Trump ad showing the aftermath of an Islamist attack in NY or LA or any of the blue state cities. You know, the bloody bodies, the weeping, the children lying dead in the streets.

Then cut to an American flag, torn and tattered, fluttering from a cracked pole. Voice over of the dog-eating crackhead talking about how he's not interested in America winning.

Watch as the flagpole cracks and the flag falls to the bloody, debris-strewn ground. Another voice over of Obama intoning that, should the political winds change, he will always stand with the Muslims.

Cut to black screen reading, "We know whose side he's on. What about you?"

But that would mean calling out the worthless, treasonous cocksucker as a worthless, treasonous cocksucker.

Which means no one will do it.

There's still an argument for forcing Democrats, and Obama, to formally go on the record with their full-throttle stance on refugee admissions. When the inevitable act of terror by "refugees" occurs, that will be hugely politically consequential. Make the liberals own it.

Unfortunately the GOP in the House are now helmed by a guy who is intent on amicably "finding ways to work with" Obama. Gee, wasn't that exactly the master plan from the previous guy? And how did that work out again?

585 I used to think that Obama had a gift of reaching out to a certain portion of America, that he targeted them deliberately to gain support and keep them voting.

I've come to realize there's no grand scheme. He's just that way. He only has one viewpoint, and absolutely ignores and rejects anything else. According to SHeryl Atkisson, she's heard that Obama will not read any intelligence warning about groups that he does not consider a threat. Simply doesn't care what is said about them; they aren't a problem in his worldview.

http://tinyurl.com/oduo5fa

Obama is so set in his ways, he only has one way of talking and seeing the world. This isn't some strategy, he just is the voice that a certain segment of the population agrees with and cares nothing about anyone else. He's not trying to shore up votes or sway anyone.

If the GOP was politically savy, they'd force Obama to veto. Force him to veto over and over, hundreds of times over the coming months. This builds the perception among voters that the Democrats are obstructionist, contrary, angry, blocking all progress and activity, and denying the will of the people in congress. It would work.

609 585 I used to think that Obama had a gift of reaching out to a certain portion of America, that he targeted them deliberately to gain support and keep them voting.

I've come to realize there's no grand scheme. He's just that way. He only has one viewpoint, and absolutely ignores and rejects anything else. According to SHeryl Atkisson, she's heard that Obama will not read any intelligence warning about groups that he does not consider a threat. Simply doesn't care what is said about them; they aren't a problem in his worldview.

http://tinyurl.com/oduo5fa

Obama is so set in his ways, he only has one way of talking and seeing the world. This isn't some strategy, he just is the voice that a certain segment of the population agrees with and cares nothing about anyone else. He's not trying to shore up votes or sway anyone.


Bingo.
And this is the real tragedy of his Presidency. Obama has the media and a large segment of the population in his pocket. He could have doubled down on Bush's foreign policy and no one would have called him a warmonger. ISIS would have been a fart in the wind if Obama just had the sense to recognize the potential danger. But nothing will ever sway him from the narrative he's already committed to. He is a know-it-all who in actuality knows nothing.

Republicans are pretty much quitters. They don't force an actual filibuster, just the threat is enough. They don't force a vote, just counting and seeing that it probably won't pass is enough. They don't force a veto, just promising is enough. No spine, no fortitude, no guts.

You just know there have to be some derringers in there, too.

I have an uncomfortable feeling that those still exist. Just with a different variety of smoke filling them.

The senior Republican leadership emerge and announce the deal they have struck. No restrictions on "refugees", no changes to Obama's Middle East policies, a lifting of the debt ceiling, full funding of all Obama budget requests through the end of his second term, additional slashing cuts to military pay and benefits, no repeal of Obamacare, a guaranteed passage for Obamatrade.

In response, Obama will courier over one extra large bag of Fritos.

Dude, we _totally_ took Obama in that negotiation. Like, no one ever thought he'd agree to anything more than the medium size bag.

I wrote about this a while back but basically they get all their ideas and information about the world from popular media. Songs, movies, TV, youtube, etc. Anything that varies from that or challenges it confuses and frightens them, so they disregard it. In the (now distant) past, that information was basically patriotic, wholesome, moral, uplifting, and valuable - people were just as stupid, but at least the stupid they were getting was constructive.

Posted by: USA at November 19, 2015 12:38 PM (tfM+W)

676 "can someone explain to me why TFG wants to remove assad?"

King Putt declared that "there is a red line that cannot be crossed," and Assad immediately crossed it.

Therefore: petulant bitchy retribution for all eternity thereafter.

It doesn't matter that there is no plausible alternative to Assad. What matters is salving Barky's wounded ego.

In any case, it's most unlikely that Lurch has gotten any real concessions on Assad out of the wily Russians. Talk about the proverbial guy who got cleaned out in the poker game before he even sat down to the table.

683 I guess I take a sort of moderate perspective on refugees. I am okay with taking some in, but only if they are actually refugees, ones needing asylum. Just because you come from a war-torn country doesn't make a refugee. You might be one of the people tearing the country up. You might have been perfectly safe. You have to demonstrate the validity of your concern.

Compassion is good, it is a virtue, but it always must be shaped, limited, and tempered by wisdom. We should act to help those in need, but only in such a way that does not harm our nation. The purpose of a nation's government first and foremost is to protect and promote its well being and safety, over all other nations.

So some refugees? Sure. Real ones, in real need. No problem. In a limited number. Nobody has a right to live in the United States other than citizens of the USA.

I get the impression these arguments, when they are about strategy, they essentially boil down to the difference in focus.

744 Yeah that Washington teacher. She just can't seem to grasp that girls like different stuff than boys. So she's trying to force them to like the same stuff as boys, and its not really working. And she calls it "equality" and "free time" to restrict play for boys.
Posted by: Christopher Taylor


It's no so much that she is trying to fundamentaly alter human nature with brainwashing and behavior control - -though that by itself is literlaly a form of torture and she should be fired and banned from teaching fro life -- it's that she cruelly lies to the boys and taunts them with false promises - -and then laughs about it!

Quote from the article:

“I always tell the boys, ‘You’re going to have a turn’[playing with Legos] - and I’m like, ‘Yeah, when hell freezes over’ in my head,” she said."

If the right behaved like the left, this woman would be hounded from her job and her life ruined.

Like Osama B L before them... ISIS knows there is a very fine line between being able to get the American People scared... and getting them to react... and then over react...

Yamamoto knew this before Pearl Harbor...

They also know that historically, Democracies can sustain a popular war for about 4 years... after that you will start to have enough of an anti war movement that it will degrade their military (even in WW2, there was a growing anti war movement in the US by 45)....

Exhibit 1? We have a smaller army, less planes, and less Combatant ships, then we had prior to WW2... even though we have been in a 'War on Terror' for 14 years...

Grrrrrrr!

I get frustrated when the Left constantly defines equality as taking stuff away from people.
Girls weren't playing with Legos, so to make it "equal" she's stopped letting boys play with Legos. Just like chaining up Harrison Bergeron's ballet dancer gf to make her "equal" to less gifted dancers.

Because she hates boys it never occurred to her that "equality" would be that each child has the opportunity/turn at playing with their toy of choice. Nope, it's all about control and punishing the Other for being different. Boys can't get joy from Legos because girls don't.

What a mindf@ck that teacher is!

806 "(even in WW2, there was a growing anti war movement in the US by 45)"

My understanding is that as soon as V-E Day occurred, every American leftist front org for Stalin's intelligence organs began to push dissatisfaction with the U.S. war effort.

The labor unions particularly so. In contrast to the war fever they had suddenly helped gin up, again under orders from Stalin, when the USSR was threatened by the Nazis.

This volte-face was of course while Stalin was frantically redeploying forces to the East, in order to be able to grab as much territory as possible after the by then inevitable arrival of V-J Day.

---
This bears repeating. I'm not Christian, but I do see many liberal secularists pull a con that many well meaning Christians buy into. Jesus gave many exhortations in Mt 5-7 , but they are exhortations directed to the individual.

They are not a license to say, "if you feel that a certain demographic may not be living up to these exhortations, then you can coerce them to, and that will ease your conscience with regards to not following them yourselves."

Jesus reserved his harshest condemnation for hypocrites.

It's also interesting that when the left does try to coerce behavior, even then they fail. Their programs are corrupt, they make conditions worse, and they make people worse, as people.

Obama does have a deep hatred for the United States. Some of those military-age Syrian refugees are, in fact, ISIS operatives seeking entry to our country in order to kill Americans. The Rosenbergs were guilty. So was Alger Hiss. The Venona Intercepts prove Joseph McCarthy was right all along. The United Stateseffectively destroyedthe Viet Cong during the Tet Offensive. Saddam Hussein was seeking weapons of mass destruction. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama orchestrated a coverup of the motives for the Benghazi attack for purely political reasons. They also denied relief for those brave men for those same reasons. Islam is not the religion of peace. Islam is a murderous death cult.

Everything the American Left says and believes is a delusion or a deliberate lie.

924 All the lefties exorcised about Trump MAYBE closing the worst terror mosques must really be up in arms about European countries (like Sweden) ACTUALLY closing Jewish temples for security reasons.

925 "Either?" WTF? This guy can't tell the difference?

That's one of the stupidest things I've heard today.

Well, if the carpet and drapes are separate rooms, or separate buildings, they don't have to match.

927 He asked for extra work which the teacher said he could ask for and then she wouldn't give it to him. Being a kid on the spectrum he radiates between having too high an opinion of himself and then agonizing because he 's under the special ed umbrella and he thinks that stigmatizes him.

If i had the money (which i don't) I would put him in the private excellent good Christian school. It's not too easy being a conservative in a public school either.

Ok, sorry for whining, folks and thanks for listening and for the suggestions.

Fen, there are several of the Morons here who are working chemists or professors of chemistry. Why not ask them for some tips on a self-study program for your son?
