  • UK poll finds small majority of Britons in favor of 'Brexit'

    Deutsche Welle ^ | 24.11.2015 | tj/msh (dpa, AFP)
    A new opinion poll has found that just over half of Britons questioned wanted their country to leave the European Union. It is the first time such a result has been attained by the polling institute. According to the survey by ORB International released on Tuesday, 52 percent of the 2,000 respondents said they thought Britain should leave the EU, while 48 percent were in favor of it remaining in the bloc. The poll, which was conducted last week, did not allow respondents to give an undecided response. The result indicates a decline in the number of those wanting Britain...

    Canada will accept only whole families, lone women or children in its mass resettlement of Syrian refugees while unaccompanied men – considered a security risk – will be turned away. Since the Paris attacks launched by Syria-linked jihadis, a plan by the new prime minister, Justin Trudeau, to fast-track the intake of 25,000 refugees by year’s end has faced growing criticism in Canada. Details of the plan will be announced Tuesday but Canada’s ambassador to Jordan confirmed that refugees from camps in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey will be flown to Canada from Jordan starting 1 December. Speaking in Jordan on...

The U.S. is faking its 'War on ISIS' and even drops leaflets in advance of airstrikes warning ISIS to flee. Is this not TREASON? Why is the U.S. faking its war on ISIS? It's all about the refugees.. Obama WANTS more refugees to flood into Europe and the U.S. Notice how adamant he is about acceptance of refugees, yet mysteriously passive when talking about the evils of ISIS?

    (See interview at link) BUDAPEST -- "Of course it's not accepted, but the factual point is that all the terrorists are basically migrants," says Viktor Orbán. "The question is when they migrated to the European Union." In his office at the Hungarian parliament, the prime minister points toward the flowing Danube. In another era, an aide notes, the Turks followed this river into the heart of Europe. Behind Orbán hang two maps: One shows a short stretch of Hungary's border with Croatia and another gives a panoramic view of the Balkans toward Turkey, from where hundreds of thousands of migrants...

    So Brussels is on lockdown due to the heightened terror threat. Trains have been canceled, people have been told to stay away from crowded areas, meaning that the center is deserted and sporting events have been postponed. It's no surprise really, because about half a mile northwest of Brussels' city center lies the shabby suburb of Molenbeek. It is one of Brussels' nineteen districts. This run down area of the Belgian capital has become the epicenter of a media storm during the past week as a number of the terrorists behind the appalling Paris attacks came from Molenbeek.

Brushing off refugee worries at home, Obama crouched alongside migrant children on Saturday and declared they are the opposite of terrorists wreaking havoc from Paris to Mali. Working to put a human face on the refugee crisis, he said, "They're just like our kids." The refugees Obama encountered at a school for poor children in Malaysia were not from Syria, and unlike...

    The battle of the refugees continues in Washington, DC.

The past couple of days have seen them advance a number of arguments against rejection of the refugees – ranging from the simply wrong to the outright laughable. I'd like to address some of these arguments below. The...

    Once upon a time, there was a safe welfare state called Sweden, where people rarely locked their doors. Now, this country is a night-watchman state -- each man is on his own. When the Minister of Justice, Morgan Johansson, encourages breaking the law, it means opening the gates to anarchy. Mr. and Mrs. Swede have every reason to be worried, with the influx of 190,000 unskilled and unemployed migrants expected this year -- equivalent to 2% of Sweden's current population. The number is as if 6.4 million penniless migrants who did not speak English arrived in U.S. in one year,...

    BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com / AP) - Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker says he's opposed to allowing more Syrian refugees into Massachusetts in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Paris. The Republican said Monday the safety and security of the people of Massachusetts are his first priority and he would have to know a lot more about the federal government's refugee vetting process before allowing them into the state. "I would certainly say no until I know a lot more than I know now," Baker said. Democratic Boston Mayor Marty Walsh echoed Baker, saying he also wants to know more about how...

    Governor Pat McCrory held a press conference Monday afternoon to discuss Syrian refugees in North Carolina. He started out by giving his condolences for victims and families of the Paris terrorist attacks and said that it went beyond France, that it was a global tragedy. Because of the recent events, McCrory said he is asking the federal government to cease sending Syrian refugees into North Carolina. He said that background checks were not currently adequate and that there needed to be more security measures in place. Several other U.S. governors are threatening to halt efforts to allow Syrian refugees into...
  • Rubio’s Bill Would Have Opened Floodgates to Islamic Refugees ( Gang of 8 )

    Here's a question an incisive debate moderator ought to ask Marco Rubio: are you happy Senators Sessions and Cruz helped defeat your Gang of 8 immigration bill? One of the more obscure yet destructive provisions of the Gang of 8 bill I wrote about in 2013 was section 3405 (page 693), which created an entire new pipeline for refugees. This bill would have concocted an unconditional right to immediate legal permanent resident status for any person in the world who declares himself "stateless." Had the bill passed in 2013, it would have given the Obama administration power to define who...

    Governor Robert Bentley on Sunday announced he is refusing Syrian refugees relocating to Alabama. "After full consideration of this weekend's attacks of terror on innocent citizens in Paris, I will oppose any attempt to relocate Syrian refugees to Alabama through the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program. As your Governor, I will not stand complicit to a policy that places the citizens of Alabama in harm's way," Governor Robert Bentley said.

    Still under shock from Friday night’s terror attacks, Paris may need a few more days to regain its signature mood of defiant dignity. Almost everyone had expected an attack but most still hoped it would never come. Now they are all asking why it did.It happened because the Islamic State, the latest version of the Islamo-apocalypytic movement, has decided that Western democracies, representing the “Infidel” world, are no longer prepared to fight even to preserve their comfortable lives. The Paris attacks came on the first day of the Muslim lunar month of Safar, which coincides with the anniversary of Prophet...

    The horrific attacks in Paris should force us to ask hard questions about elements within Islam in Europe, questions mainstream leaders have tried hard to avoid. All too often such questions have been labeled Islamophobic or racist. The threat from radical Muslims has often even been relativized by organizations specializing in intercultural dialogue. In my own country of Sweden, the transition to a more pluralistic and religiously diverse society has led to increasing tension over religion. The majority of victims of anti-religious crimes in Sweden are Muslims and mosques, which have rightly received media coverage and support from politicians. But there has been little corresponding...

    The letter is as follows: November 14, 2015 The Honorable Barack Obama The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington, D.C. 20500 Dear President Obama, In the wake of another round of appalling terrorist attacks, I write to express great sadness at the events in Paris, as well as my grave concern about the unreported diffusion of Syrian refugees in the United States. Last week, the city of New Orleans began receiving its first wave of Syrian refugees. As with former immigration crises and federal relocation policy, Louisiana has been kept in the dark about those seeking refuge in the...

    Public Broadcasting of Latvia ^ | 17 Sep 2015 | Diana Hodulina
    From the world wide web and the government, the refugee matter has moved to the spiritual plane as well. The pope has asked believers to help refugees and to give them sanctuary. The Russian-language program of Latvian Television 7, Segodnya Vecherom, reavealed on Wednesday that not all Latvian Christians are ready to help people with a religion different from their own. The Pontifex Maximus was heard around here, but not everyone is keen on opening their doors and hearts. Representatives of the Roman Catholic Church admit that even though asylum seekers shouldn't be sorted by their religious affiliation, it's not...

    Failed TV host and raging liberal Piers Morgan was quick to conclude that the Paris attackers were not Muslim refugees from other nations. Turns out Piers was WRONG! Go figure. From Gateway Pundit: The terrorist was carrying a Syrian passport. The passport was found on the terrorist who blew himself up outside the soccer stadium. So, why again is the U.S. willing to accept thousands of mainly Muslim refugees from war-torn countries? Oh, right – it’s the politically correct thing to do. What’s odd is that many countries have said that they would take zero Islamic refugees, so there goes...
