Catholic Charities, UWF, Make Your Case!

Big in the  national and local news as well as on the campaign trail is the plight of, among others, the Syrian refugees seeking asylum in this country. Only, they’re not seeking refuge in this country. This administration is hell-bent on bringing them to the United States instead of supporting/protecting them in and around Syria. Some are coming here to Northwest Florida.

When asked if they would rather be home or here, they prefer to be home, or close enough to home so they can return after the  civil war is over and ISIS is destroyed.

Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida President/CEO, Mr. Christopher Root

NGO’s are bringing the “refugees” and embedded terrorists here, financed with grants from the federal government. Attempts to speak to Catholic Charities CEO Christopher Root have fallen on deaf ears. Neither phone calls or in-person requests for a meeting on the subject of the refugees have been returned or acknowledged.

Mr. Root is hold up in a secure office building on Garden Street, just what you might expect for a non-profit Catholic charity. What?

In an attempt to get some transparency, and for Mr. Root to justify why, in spite of administration officials (and the terrorists themselves) saying that there will be terrorists among them, why he feels sacrificing our national security is necessary? I think the reason can be summed up in money. As in grant money. National security? Not the Catholic Charity’s problem.

Below is a letter-to-the editor submitted Dec 1, 2015. It has not been published yet. Meanwhile, there have been plenty of articles and other letters published that are sympathetic to bringing the refugees here. And, at the same time, disparaging those, like many in the country, who want no part of them coming here. Only the leading Republican candidates are talking about helping them in and around their own country in safe zones. People like President Obama are quick to say, “that’s not who we are.” Sorry, but importing terrorists to do us harm is not who we are. Democrats are all-in for bringing them here. After all, Muslims tend to vote 80% Democrat. What he means is, just like illegals flooding our borders on foot, building a permanent voting block is who he is. But that’s not who America is.

It is not just Christopher Root, but the talking heads at UWF who must justify why Syrians must come here, knowing of the high risk of terrorist embeds, and also how plucking them out of their country, continent, culture, and language will be more beneficial, for the refugees.

Letter to the editor follows.

endofstory

For the U.S. to participate in helping refugees from anywhere when they come here is one thing. But to take them out of their country, continent, culture, and language, to bring them here is not only presumptuous of us to know what’s best for them, but is endangering ourselves in the process.

They need help there, in safe zones, so they can return home when their civil war is over and the dust settles. We had our civil war and no-one left the country. For the Syrians to leave their own country would be taking the opposition to ISIL away. Taking Syria’s future away. That’s not compassion.

What the media and academe won’t tell you is, it’s not the U.S. government bringing them here. It is NGO’s (Non-Governmental Organizations) who are getting government grants who are bringing them here. Money talks. And money tends to change focus and re-arrange priorities from more important factors like our homeland security from the terrorist hotbed, Syria.

How about someone from an NGO like Catholic Charities, or a university like UWF, make their case that Syrian refugees are better helped with a one-way ticket here, instead of in and around their homeland?

 

Inadmissible Aliens Is Settled Law

Trump-Carter-Code-1182This law was written in 1952.  It was passed by a Democrat-controlled Congress, House and Senate, and signed by a Democrat president…  Everybody in the establishment in the political class, Republican, Democrat, media, you name it, is all claiming that what Trump said is dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous, unconstitutional, while it is the law of the land.  And it was utilized by Jimmy Carter, no less, in 1979 to keep Iranians out.

In November the 1979 United States attorney general had given all Iranian students one month to report to the local immigration office. Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas, 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the United States, 1979.

A direct quote from the law:

(f)Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

21st Century Noose

It ought to be patently obvious by now, that freedom and liberty are, and have been, under attack. It is under attack by a political class that no longer feels bound by the Constitution. In fact, they spend their time and energy to get around it.

Remember when we had he 1st Amendment?  Where the government protected our right to free speech, not to mention specifically political speech.

Something nefarious is at work here. It’s liberalism’s social justice amendment. It isn’t there. It does not exist. But, you couldn’t tell from what’s been going on lately. PC has become the new reality.

Just look at the progress, and lack thereof, of the civil rights movement. How did the civil rights movement, which began with the Civil War and slavery, and reignited in the 1950’s and 60’s, go from segregation, to integration, only to go back to segregation?

Now we have kids being persecuted in school for standing up for their religious  or political beliefs. Now we have students whining about someone hurting their feelings, and they want the administration to “protect” them. Protect them from reality. They are demanding a #SafeSpace. And some want it to be Black-only. Martin Luther King Jr. must be turning over in his grave on that one.

Left unchecked, Political Correctness is becoming the noose of the 21st century. What are you going to do about it? Slip it on, or demand your rights (not feelings) be protected.

Rally? What Rally?

There was supposed to be a ‘raise the minimum wage’ rally downtown last evening. Organized by a local labor union.

I couldn’t be there. Had to work. But I wanted to see a fat protester holding up a sign whining about having to work for a ‘starving wage.’ (found a pic on google)

So it was with eager anticipation to check the local newspaper this morning to see what happened. Nothing there. Zip, zero, nada. Nothing in the local alternative media either. Feeling a mild case of Schadenfreude here.

UPDATE: 11/11/2015 Thanks to one of the participant’s feedback, the “rally” wasn’t really a rally. I was mistaken. Instead of a rally, it was a “forum” held somewhere in town. Probably a union hall somewhere. Regardless, there was no rally. And no news coverage of the forum either. I mean really, who thinks labor unions would want the folks to know why they are supporting raising the minimum wage, for non-union workers?

Boycott Indiana?

So what’s really going on here? A toxic combination of anti-Christian bigotry and sexual revolution radicalism. It is simply uninformed and bigoted to believe that Christians are somehow lurking in the shadows, ready to deny food, shelter, and basic services to their gay fellow citizens — blocked from such vicious actions only by the strong arm of the state.

Feinstein vs CIA

Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, released a report about intelligence gathering by the CIA of the terrorists held at Club Gitmo and elsewhere. The same interrogation techniques that they had been briefed on and approved of. And had even questioned the CIA whether it was enough to get all the information they felt they needed.

There seems to be general agreement, even from Feinstein herself, that the publication of the information contained in the committee report (assembled exclusively by democrats) will put Americans and our allies at risk.

So why would the committee produce such a report about a program that has not been used in eight years, and made “illegal” five years ago, and release it to the public, knowing that it will put Americans and allies around the world in danger?

First of all, look at the report itself. It is not the result of an investigation as we know it. No one involved was interviewed about it. The report is a compilation of emails and communications allegedly between CIA operatives and others. “Others” including foreigners and allies. It is a process that democrats in the intelligence committee have been working on for a decade. Part of the anti-war anti-Bush administration narrative we are all too familiar with. Another chance to beat a dead horse.

Due to the sensitive nature of those communications, the CIA did its own clandestine investigation of the members of Feinstein’s committee, to see whether the information they received was illegally obtained. After all, protecting national secrets and informants is their job. There’s been no suggestion that the CIA obstructed the committee in what it was doing.

Simply put, Senator Feinstein is exacting 40 million dollars worth of political revenge on the CIA for spying on her computers. And is also willing to put Americans and our allies at risk to do it. Nothing more than political masturbation at the country’s expense.

What Delusion Looks Like, Ed Shultz, Ring of Fire

Ed Shultz: “The radio stations liberals had as a breeding ground are now home to the conservative talkers trying to harvest a dollar in fast falling format.”

Fast falling format? Ed Shultz must be thinking about Air America Radio. Conservative talkers, according to Sergeant Shultz, are “occupiers.” And, they don’t debate the issues, they “vilify thoughts.”

More of Eddie’s delusion . . .

The public has figured out these occupiers in front of the microphone do not entertain. They don’t do news. They
only vilify thoughts opposite of their own.

Poor Eddie, still making excuses why liberal talk radio has failed in the talk-radio marketplace.

Merck Reports Record 2Q

Time for a little good news from an industry that is continuously under attack from the slip-and-fall lawyer industry.

Merck & Co. (MRK) on Tuesday reported earnings that more than doubled in its second quarter, and topped analysts’ expectations.

  • Earnings, adjusted for one-time gains and costs, were 85 cents per share.
  • Merck shares have increased $7.92, or 16 percent, to $57.97 since the beginning of the year.
  • The stock has climbed $9.63, or 20 percent, in the last 12 months.

What comes next is the attacks from the anti-capitalist Progressives, accusing Merck of evil doings. What they won’t say is that Merck merely followed the IRS tax code.

Gay Activists Most Intolerant, Fascists

PC or “politically correct” is just a mushy term for fascism. It means you shouldn’t, or in this case, can’t say or do anything that these activists don’t agree with. And if you do, then you’ll be made to pay for it. With your job, or worse. It’s as if they have their own version of the 1st Amendment. Politically, this is an invention of Saul Alinsky. Instead of debating the issues, you try to shut the opponent up, if not destroy him personally. This is exactly what happened here.

What Brendan Eich, CEO and creator of the popular web browser Mozilla did, was give $1000 to the Proposition 8 initiative in California, in 2008. That was the proposition that Californians approved by an overwhelming majority that said simply, that marriage is between a man and a woman. It was the same position that President Obama had at the same time. It was also what the 9th Circus Court of Appeals overturned.

But unlike Obama, he didn’t change his mind (for campaign cash). And unlike Obama, he didn’t go public and advocate his position. He merely exercised his right to participate affirmatively in the initiative, made a contribution to the cause, and went about his own business.

It was the little fascist hetero-phobic bigots that searched public records to find, then target for persecution, people who contributed to Prop 8.

The reaction from The White House about this is crickets. Any other President of the United States would be the first to publicly condemn that kind of retribution as being not only intolerant, but as an attack on the free speech guarantee of the 1st Amendment. You know, that document he swore on a stack of bibles to protect and defend.
