    President Obama is standing by his decision to ramp up the admission of Syrian refugees to the United States even after three refugees from Islamic countries attacked people in Germany over the last week.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: The president of the United States has told us we've got nothing to fear from ISIS, right? I mean, nothing to fear from these refugees. Oh, by the way, did you hear what Canada has done? "Canada to No Longer Accept Single Male Refugees From Syria." Now, the Canadians just elected a little commie pinko guy.

    Instead of voting to "encumber and bog down the refugee process," Republicans should go along with a Democrat demand to bar people on a secret government list from buying guns, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Monday. Earnest said the Republican plan to beef up the vetting of refugees will not improve national security: "Again, if Congress were actually interested in doing that, they'd pass a law that would prevent somebody who's on the terror watch list from being able to buy a gun.

    Your alternate headline comes from Charles Cooke: “President Obama announces record gun sales in 2016.” So two of his major priorities heading into a presidential election year are (a) gun-grabbing and (b) telling Americans they’re un-American for worrying about importing thousands of Muslims from the site of the most vicious sectarian war on Earth.
