US State Department Quietly Opens the Floodgates for Incoming Refugees

President Trump issued an executive order to reduce the number of refugees entering the US, but that has been stalled in the courts. Meanwhile, the US State Department, acting entirely on its own, quietly lifted restrictions on the number of refugees allowed into the US.  Immigration advocates are pushing hard for a roll back of Trump’s budget cuts for refugee processing. Congress and the State Department are accomplishing that. It makes no difference what the voters want – or don’t want. –GEG

Despite repeated efforts by President Trump to curtail refugee resettlements, the State Department this week quietly lifted the department’s restriction on the number of refugees allowed to enter the United States.

The result could be a near doubling of refugees entering the country, from about 830 people a week in the first three weeks of this month to well over 1,500 people per week by next month, according to refugee advocates. Tens of thousands of refugees are waiting to come to the United States.

The State Department’s decision was conveyed in an email on Thursday to the private agencies in countries around the world that help refugees manage the nearly two-year application process needed to enter the United States.

In her email, Jennifer L. Smith, a department official, wrote that the refugee groups could begin bringing people to the United States “unconstrained by the weekly quotas that were in place.”

Although it came the same day as an appeals court ruling that rejected government efforts to limit travel to the United States from six predominantly Muslim nations, the move by the State Department had nothing to do with the court ruling.

The department’s quotas on refugee resettlement were largely the result of budget constraints imposed by Congress in a temporary spending measure passed last fall. But when Congress passed a spending bill this month that funded the government for the rest of the fiscal year, the law did not include any restrictions on refugee admissions.

A State Department spokeswoman, speaking on the condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to discuss the issue publicly, said the department had consulted the Department of Justice about its refugee quotas and had decided to adjust them.

Shocking: American Prosperity Has Been Fatally Wounded by Collectivism

While the US used to be a rich country, an increasing number of Americans now are living in poverty. Half of the people in the US have no savings and cannot raise $400 on a day’s notice. Politicians refuse to address the death of the middle class because that is the consequence of their own controls over the economy. America is following the deadly path of collectivism only a few steps behind Venezuela. –GEG




Portland Killer Portrayed by Media as Trump Supporter But Actually Voted for Bernie

Jeremy Christian harassed two young Muslim women and went on an anti-Islamic rant before stabbing two men to death who stepped in to defend the women. As expected, the media is portraying him as a Trump-supporting white supremacist, but he wrote on social media that he voted for Bernie Sanders. Christian’s bizarre actions suggest that he is an agent of anti-Trump forces and that his job is to create public revulsion against the President. He initiated scuffles, disgraced the American flag by wearing a semblance of it as a cape, and used the Nazi salute,. He was kicked out of a free-speech rally by Trump supporters who had reported him to the police. The police did nothing as though he was untouchable. Christian’s criminal record includes robbery, kidnapping, weapons charges, parole violations, and contempt. It would be easy to recruit a thug like this simply by offering to not prosecute him if he would play the role. Give him some money, too, and the deal is made. –GEG

Jeremy Christian, a man who killed two people in Portland and was shouting about Islam, was not a Trump supporter, nor a member of the new right.

Mike Cernovich reported—
Christian was also allegedly unstable and this is well documented and obvious based on his action.

Jeremy Christian, whose politics are as unclear as the reasoning behind the murders he committed, has a history of being unstable and violent and, in fact, Trump supporters reported him to the police. This was after he was kicked out of a free speech event by those very same Trump supporters.
The police ignored it.

The following video shows his behavior at the Free Speech event:

Mike Cernovich tweeted earlier that a source informed him that Christian is a Bernie supporter that would “intentionally start scuffles and do Nazi salutes for attention

Former Muslim Extremist Reveals That Extremism Now Dominates Islamic Society And Calls for Reform of Bad Ideas

Hussein Abubakr, a moderate Muslim from Egypt, says that most Muslims are moderate, but their leaders are not. His revelations are sobering, especially for truly moderate Muslims who are being swept into the vortex of extremism whether they approve or not. Most Muslims remain quiet because they fear retribution and do not want to be accused of rejecting their faith. Western values that include freedom of speech and the press, and tolerance of other religions are incompatible with Sharia Law.  He calls upon Islam to reform itself. Abubakr is a courageous man. –GEG
