Trump's Muslim Ban is Working. Muslim Immigration Slumps
Newsweek ^

Posted on 12/14/2017 11:31:11 AM PST by Cubs Fan

During his campaign, President Trump promised to ban all Muslims outright until he could figure out “what is going on.”

He later explained that this idea had developed into several policies that would have the same effect.

Since his inauguration, Trump has begun to implement them—they include slashing the refugee program, banning all immigration and travelers from several majority Muslim countries, and imposing new burdens on all visa applicants as part of “extreme vetting” initiatives.

So far, these policies appear to have “worked,” strongly reducing Muslim immigration and travel to the United States.

Muslim refugee admissions have fallen dramatically over the past year. According to figures from the State Department, Muslim refugee flows fell 94 percent from January to November 2017 (the last full month of available data).

In calendar 2016, the United States admitted almost 45,000 Muslim refugees, compared to a little more than 11,000 in 2017—fully half of those entered in January and February.

Of course, the administration has cut refugee flows generally, but the Muslim share of all refugees has dropped substantially too—from 50 percent in January to less than 10 percent in November.

Clinton Struck Deal With Obama State Dept. to Keep Muslim Interaction Records Private
Washington Free Beacon ^ | 12/14/17 | Jack Heretik / FR Posted by x1stcav

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton struck a deal with the State Department while serving in the Obama administration that allowed her to take ownership of records she did not want made public, according to recently released reports.

Clinton and her then-deputy chief of staff Muslim Huma Abedin were permitted to remove electronic and physical records under a claim they were "personal" materials and "unclassified, non-record materials."

Judicial Watch made the revelation after filing a FOIA request with the State Department and obtaining a record of the agreement. The newly released documents show the deal allowed Clinton and Abedin to remove documents related to particular calls and schedules, and the records would not be "released to the general public under FOIA." Abedin, for instance, was allowed to remove electronic records and five boxes of physical files, including files labeled "Muslim Engagement Documents."

The released records included a list of designated materials that "would not be released to the general public under FOIA" and were to be released "to the Secretary with this understanding."

Electronic copy of "daily files" – which are word versions of public documents and non-records: speeches/press statements/photos from the website, a non-record copy of the schedule, a non record copy of the call log, press clips, and agenda of daily activities

Electronic copy of a log of calls the Secretary made since 2004, it is a non-record, since her official calls are logged elsewhere (official schedule and official call log)

Electronic copy of the Secretary’s "call grid" which is a running list of calls she wants to make (both personal and official)

16 boxes: Personal Schedules (1993 thru 2008-prior to the Secretary’s tenure at the Department of State.

29 boxes: Miscellaneous Public Schedules during her tenure as FLOTUS and Senator-prior to the Secretary’s tenure at the Department of State

1 box: Personal Reimbursable receipts (6/25/2009 thru 1/14/2013)

1 box: Personal Photos

1 box: Personal schedule (2009-2013)

A physical file of "the log of the Secretary’s gifts with pictures of gifts" was also handed over to Clinton. Gifts received by government employees is highly regulated, and often strictly limited. However, gifts that are "motivated by a family relationship or personal friendship" may be accepted without limitation.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton released a statement condemning the agreement between the government and Clinton. "We already know the Obama State Department let Hillary Clinton steal and then delete her government emails, which included classified information. But these new records show that was only part of the scandal," Fitton said. "These new documents show the Obama State Department had a deal with Hillary Clinton to hide her calls logs and schedules, which would be contrary to FOIA and other laws." "When are the American people going to get an honest investigation of the Clinton crimes?" he added.

“Worked” in scare quotes.

And they wonder why we call them “Fake News.”

It is a start, but it needs to be a large net deportation. There are millions of mosselimbs who need to be exported for good.

Gee, it would seem to me in a world that made even a little bit of sense that something like this would be HEADLINE NEWS.

Silly me.

Charles Martel saved Europe from a MASSIVE invasion by Islam
a few hundred years ago. Charles martel with a just standing Christian Knights stopped the 40,000 Muslim army that was on horseback in this battle! Martel Saved Western civilization.

Charles martel;s Christian Knights stood like a wall as StoneWALL Jackson did during the civil war. Charles Martel defeated The massive Muslim army all on horseback

Trump is Charles Martel!

and Muslim admissions have increased on average 18 percent annually from 2007 to 2016.

Well, what could possibly have happened during those years to cause such an increase in Moslem immigration? Some mysteries just can't be solved. '

Never underestimate the potential for self-deportation.
