We’re already importing poverty in the name of “diversity”. I guess importing terrorism can’t hurt. The whole country is going to hell anyway.

Obama and Holder will give them weapons, too.

Article III, Section 3, Paragraph 1, of the Constitution of the United States:
"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them,
or, in adhering to their Enemies, giving them aid and comfort.
"

The "aid and comfort" prong of treason has been interpreted
by SCOTUS as requiring proof of four elements:
1. an intent to betray the United States (which can be inferred from);
2. an overt act;
3. witnessed by two people; and
4. that provides aid and comfort to an enemy of the United States.


"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious.
But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.
But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
A murderer is less to be feared."

-- Marcus Tullius Cicero

All the hallmarks of a lame duck administration in it’s death rattle- only Obama’s death rattle has 13 more months. Should be interesting.

In a sane world this would HAVE to be satire, but this is Barry’s bizarro world and we’re along for the ride... for now.

Actually, many, if not most of, our domestic terror plots are by immigrants from states not on the official designated terror-sponsor list -- places like Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Egypt.

It's not the designation. It's the Islam.

The visa lottery is part of U.S immigration law. Blame Congress and the administrations, GOP and Dem, who have let this legal monster live so long.

The only way this can make sense is if the DOJ is handing out AK’s as they come thru the gates.

In a weird way, this is GOOD —Hillary is the next Dem candidate, and this shows she doesn’t really know how to do her job.

She’s not serious, you see?

She had a role in Fast & Furious, THEN she floods the USA with potential terrorists.

This is just more political ammo for our side.

REMEMBER THIS FOR 2012, BECAUSE ***SHE*** IS THE CANDIDATE.

The problem is retail politics.

Every member of congress gets calls and letters from upstanding constituents, like the law-abiding dentist from Pakistan who just wants his sister and brother-in-law, and their kids, to get their immigrant visas.

Why deny all these nice folks their family reunification dream, just because of a "few bad apples"?

Of course, scale up from the retail level, and you have "the fastest growing religion in America" whose adherents include more than enough people eager to attack our liberties through intimidation, menace and worse.

“... Obama’s death rattle has 13 more months.”

Keep in mind that he will remain in office until January 20 of 2013; he may be able to wreak untold additional havoc with Executive actions, constitutional or not, btwn Election day and his exit day from 1600 PA.

Well, more immigrants from terrorist states probably would achieve the Visa Lottery’s goal of letting in people from “underrepresented groups”.

“Underrepresented groups”, just another one of those wonderful bureaucratic terms.

fortunately I don’t believe SecDef Panetta would give O the
use of the military to continue in office past his term.

if it were one of O’s inner circle it would mean grave danger to our republic.

Companies like Microsoft have been complaining about the loss of crucial top notch technical talent to Canada or back to their native countries because their work visas are not being renewed. They’re no doubt being crowded out by crap like this.

Tell me: when we rid ourselves of this regime (including Hillary) how do we rid ourselves of the idiots at State? I hope President Cain/Romney/Gingrich/Santorum appoints John Bolton to clean up State.
