From the Desk of John Rourke – November 17th, 2015

 

Capt. Michaels posted a link to a press release whereby Texas Governor sent a letter to President Obama stating that he refuses to accept any refugees from Syria.

Here is an excerpt:

“Given the tragic attacks in Paris and the threats we have already seen, Texas cannot participate in any program that will result in Syrian refugees – any one of whom could be connected to terrorism – being resettled in Texas,” Governor Abbott said in the letter. “Effective today, I am directing the Texas Health & Human Services Commission’s Refugee Resettlement Program to not participate in the resettlement of any Syrian refugees in the State of Texas. And I urge you, as President, to halt your plans to allow Syrians to be resettled anywhere in the United States.”

“Neither you nor any federal official can guarantee that Syrian refugees will not be part of any terroristic activity,” Governor Abbott continued. “As such, opening our door to them irresponsibly exposes our fellow Americans to unacceptable peril.”

This is leadership.

With my luck the price will change by the time you see this: Amazon has a couple of great deals going on for a very limited time:

The Kindle Fire HD 10 tablet has a reduced price of $199.99. This is a great price for such a capable and large tablet. Regular price is $229.99 which is a great price as well. Someone Christmas morning would be very happy(including me!).

Also the PNY 32 gb microSD card is on sale for $9.99 with free shipping on orders over $35 or to Prime members. A ton of storage space for $10.

Like I said these prices can change at any time.

Anyone have any experience with the Remington 783 bolt action? I have been looking at the Ruger All AMerican but recently saw the Rem 783 and really liked it. It was $329 with a scope. I would likely install a decent Nikon(around $200)

  1. Wow, I can’t believe there are no comments on this Post. Obummer is still trying to ruin us with Syrian refugees with terrorists mixed in with them. I live in Georgia and Gov Deal stated that Georgia will accept no more of them. I hope the Federal Government don’t over rule him and the other Governors that have stepped up.

  2. Thank you John for re-sharing that information. I see a lot of other Gov’s joined in also. Now there is a big debate about the legality of whether or not the Gov can enforce it. I think he will regardless, especially since bummer has been a fine example of how to violate the constitution and break the law. Just like the oath of the military;

    I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;

    This would include disobeying a direct order from a President who has violated the Constitution. *sigh* That evil *beep* is trying so hard to create total chaos by whatever means, civil unrest, etc so he can declare martial law. This is kind of scary because this could be…the catalyst that sets it off. Either death by terrorist and bummer’s thugs or the alternative.

    Barbie commercial showing the boy playing with a Barbie? Good grief! Thank you John and those on this site that have also clearly demonstrated leadership in themselves. United We Stand.

  3. Unfortunately for the nation, refugee placement is strictly under Federal control. The Obama administration will likely act as it always does, he won’t hear the governors protests…. as if the governors don’t even exist. How about every refugee from this day forward gets placed only in sanctuary cities….. If only we could guarantee that they would stay there.

  4. Specifically, under Section 412 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, states do not have the authority to refuse foreign nationals who have been granted asylum or refugee status by the federal government. Additionally, the White House does not need to consult with states on decisions to parole or give refuge to foreign nationals.

  5. Thats depressing know that states dont have rights re the immigrants . I am sensning that
    there will be incredible protests and back lash
    as there should be from the Pres. abusing his powers. Arlene

  6. That’s exactly my point. Obama says you will. Texas(other states) say no, will not! Feds say “or else”. Texas and other states say bring it. Feds threaten again, states decide it’s either let the terrorist roam freely until they strike. Or stand up and go down fighting. Bingo! Go time!

  7. I decided today to pick up a pistol permit application. I have been meaning to for years.
    $95. here in NYS.
    I dont like Putin but I like the way he immediately bombed the crap out of Isis.
    Now 33 Gov. are against taking in Syrian refugees.Most likely this will become a Congressional issue.
    Guys dont get too upset over a young boy playing with a doll=many turn out to be great Dads just as we tom boys in time became more feminine and exc. Moms.Most boys let their sisters talk them into playing house for a short while and then refuse. Was the boy playing with a female Barbie or a Ken doll? We never let our daughter have them- too Madison ave. -and a poor role model for girls. Arlene

  8. I don’t want the refugees here and am glad that our governor has decided to try to block them, however looking at the attacks that have happened in the last few weeks, IMHO I think ISIS has been prepositioning terrorists in most countries and we are all in for major attacks in the near future. It may be a good time to avoid possible target areas and stay home for awhile.

  9. A simple thought, do not admit them to CONUS- PERIOD! Follow parts of the Marshall Plan. The refugees are in Europe, pretty much under control of those tasked to their feeding & housing. Great! Now if Unk wants to do something positive to help them, send food, additional housing etc. over to their hosting nations. Keep them in their comfort zones over there. If the US is helping with their needs over there, the refugees don’t need to be forced to endure more culture shock by being brought here. Even POTUS can assure his legacy as ‘humanitarin’ by supporting them outside of being here in CONUS generally and NV in particular.

  11. As John Gault said the governors can not stop them from entering their states. But the governors can make sure that they don’t get help from the states.

  12. meanwhile, our great gubner here in SC,rino haley,says she doesn’t want any Syrian refugees, but doesn’t mention turning away any others. . . . how the heck do you know where they are from?! more politics from a politician. . . . but she was all over taking down that “offensive” flag. . .

  13. Boys with Barbie dolls is simply propagandized feminization of males. No wonder we have parades full of people with gender identification issues. You can’t even begin to legitimized this like it’s a baby doll to learn nurturing behavior with.
    Then on the flip side you have girls playing war video games as if they could ever actually pull that off in real life without having gender identification issues.
    All we can do is demonstrate and show appreciation for traditional gender roles in our own homes. The best sermons are lived.
