Yesterday, November 28th, the Students and faculty at Ohio State University suffered the most recent Terror attack by a Muslim terrorist on American’s who used his car and a butcher knife as weapons to carry out his attack. This Somali Muslim Refugee was granted entry into the United States from a failed or dysfunctional terrorist state. This was not the first crime by someone granted entry and residency in the U.S. under the Muslim Refugee Program; and it likely will not be the last. But President-elect Trump has vowed to make significant changes to the U.S. policy regarding the Muslim Refugee Program; including a “Muslim Registry” for applicants seeking asylum and entry into the U.S. and a moratorium for entry from certain terror hot-spot area’s that are troublesome for security concerns. Fox News reported the following:
// Somali student behind car, knife attack at Ohio State University that injured 11 | Fox News
A Somali-born student at Ohio State University injured 11 people, one of them critically, on Monday when he attacked a crowd of pedestrians on campus in an incident one lawmaker said “bears all the hallmarks of a terror attack.”
Authorities said Abdul Razak Ali Artan, 18, plowed a small gray Honda into the crowd outside Watts Hall, an engineering classroom building, just before 10 a.m. ET. Artan then got out of the vehicle and attacked people with a butcher knife before he was shot and killed by a campus police officer.- via Fox News.
Reince Priebus, Trump’s incoming Chief of Staff on Meet the Press recently responded to criticism that the Trump administration was “Not going to rule out anything” in regards to a refugee registry and security.
“Look I’m not going to rule out anything,” Priebus said. “We’re not going to have a registry based on a religion. But what I think what we’re trying to do is say that there are some people, certainly not all people… there are some people that are radicalized. And there are some people that have to be prevented from coming into this country. And Donald Trump’s position, President Trump’s position is consistent with bills in the House and the Senate that say the following: If you want to come from a place or an area around the world that harbors and trains terrorists, we have to temporarily suspend that operation until a better vetting system is put in place.” – via MSN NBC News
There have been many on the Left and in the LameStream media upset about recent statements in regards to a “Muslim” Registry. The Left have taken every opportunity to exploit this out of context comment, and characterize it as proof of plans for internment of Muslims here in America like the Japanese-Americans round up in WWII. George Takei of Star Trek character “Zulu” fame, and internee during WWII, recently wrote an op-ed about it even. The comment in question igniting all the furor by the “Hysterical’s” about sinister “Deplorable’s” intentions to have a Muslim Registry and by extension subsequent “internment” was by a spokesperson of a PAC that supported Trump. These concerns are hysterical, unwarranted, and completely false; and they know it. It is yet another example of the Left and their Lamestream Lackey’s efforts to propagandize on the issue of National Security.
Ironically, that hero of modern American Liberalism, President Franklin D. Roosevelt; is the only President to violate the Constitution with his end-around of Congress to imprison American Citizen’s stripping them of their Constitutional rights and protections based upon race, ancestry, or religion. FDR determined their status with his own Executive Order 9102 interning the Japanese-AMERICANS, living right here in this country. In a forgotten fact of history often over-looked on the subject of his internment order, FDR also included some German-American, Italian-American, and Jewish-American citizens/residents for good measure.
The current proposal for a “registry” is in regard to those abroad who are seeking entry into the U.S.. This would apply to any and all applicants from area’s of ISIS or Terrorism strife and conflict. It is not exclusive to Muslim faith Refugee’s, just as Priebus said above. It is about security, not religion. It is about security, not political correctness as it is has been up until now.
Currently, under Obama Administration criteria refugee’s have been allowed in without any meaningful regard for security from these failed states, or areas harboring terrorism. These regions are lacking the infrastructure in place necessary to the vetting of their background, identity, or possible terrorist connections, and ties they may have. This was confirmed by our Intelligence officials testimony and warnings in the Homeland Security, CIA, and the FBI, during Congressional hearings. A federal judge has even questioned and demanded answers from the Obama Administration over the criteria and prioritization that has been used to date with the refugee program and specifically under representation of Syrian Christian’s. Christian’s are probably one of the most victimized, and threatened refugee population’s targeted by ISIS genocide. Likely they are the easiest to clear, and be vetted for security purposes, and yet seem to be the least likely granted refuge. This example ought to cause concern for what process is currently in place; as it did for the Federal Judge, and therefore his questions for the Administration.
I believe, and polling shows clearly that most American’s agree that there is nothing wrong with using caution in carefully analyzing our intake of refugee’s. Trump has proposed that we provide Humanitarian aid, and shelter with “Safe Zones” in the areas of conflict. The Muslim’s, Christian’s, Yazidi’s or anyone interested in seeking refugee status from area’s of conflict tnto the U.S. could apply to this registry for vetting, and clearance. It may be done sooner, or later, but the determining factor and priority shall be the safety, and security of U.S. Citizens, and our National Security. There are no Constitutional issues with asking for a registry of non-citizens overseas wanting to come here for asylum.
Why is a registry for refugee applicants, and safe vetting asking too much for some? We currently have a process where legal immigrant applicants have waited years for entry who have provided all their Criminal, Identity, Health, and Financial records required. Why would any sane or logical person subject our National Security, and safety of our citizens for “Political Correctness”? That is against all common sense, and prudence.
The Mariel Boatlift should have taught us 35 years ago to be on guard and place security concern over emotional concern. Castro emptied his prisons with the worst of the worst. He unleashed a ticking criminal time-bomb on the United States of America. That example shows us clearly what happens when we fail to heed common sense, and intellectual criteria when faced with emotional and humanitarian appeals for immediate action, without regard for caution, or “what if” ramifications. Trump cannot, and shall not be “shamed” into making logical decisions in lieu of National Security priority. Those days are over. There is a new Sheriff in town.
President elect Chief of Staff Priebus closed with this during the recent ‘Meet the Press’ interview.
“He believes that no faith in and of itself should be judged as a whole,” Priebus said. “But there are some people in countries abroad that need to be prevented… there are some people that need to be prevented from coming into this country. So I think that’s where 99 percent of Americans are at.” – via MSN NBC News
The hysterical Alt-Left is conjuring up scenario’s and suggesting sinister actions referencing FDR’s internment against Japanese-American citizens, and are even suggesting impending Muslim, or Jewish internment are in the future of President-elect Trump’s agenda. These are the nonsensical last gasps of political desperation in response to a crushing political defeat of their ideas and policies. Those foolish policies that have subjected American security, and citizens safety for the sake of Political Correctness; are over. In their place will be Constitutionally correct decisions based on National Security, and Common Sense. You be the judge. I think most American’s have already made their feelings known just weeks ago.
