So the federal government really can be efficient – when it wants to. I guess it just must not want to very often.
I supposed we could say that August is a banner month for the government. Yesterday I wrote that Barack’s plan for Obamacare was for it to collapse under its own weight, to then be replaced by a utopian single payer entirely government healthcare system – that this was the plan of the progressives all along. Obama said years ago that he thought might take 10 or 15 years or more to get to that point, but as I wrote – here we are, a mere six years in, with a system already imploding far ahead of schedule. That’s progress!
Today we hear of yet another milestone for the government. They are at least a month ahead of schedule on another major Obama project. Is it rebuilding our infrastructure? No. Is it putting people back to work? Nope. Is it reeducation camps for constitutionalists? No – none of those.
It was announced yesterday that the Obama administration reached its goal of admitting 10,000 Middle Eastern refugees into the United States. Hooray! That’s six times more than in 2015. Hooray again!
Earlier this year, it didn’t look very promising to get anywhere close to the goal. By the end of January, 2016, only 841 refugees had been relocated to the States. That’s a far cry from 10,000, with only 8 months to go to meet the goal of admitting them all by the end of FY 2016, September 30.
Things were still progressing slowing through the next three months. In February, only 114 were processed, March, it was up to 330 and April had jumped to 451. Then something happened. The administration put the processing of refugees into high gear, as the number in May leaped to 1069 and in June, it vaulted to 2406. Of the 2406, eight were Christian – 2389 were Sunni Muslim. Each month since, the number has increased.
So what happened? Well the details are unknown. We may never know, as they didn’t end up on Hillary’s server. That’s too bad.
But somehow, Barack and John Kerry were able to find a way to drastically decrease the time to properly vet and process the refugees at the center in the country of Jordan, before heading to the U.S., without sacrificing any security of any kind.
The normal and historic processing time for Middle Eastern refugees has been 18-24 months. This was not acceptable, so Kerry’s State Department set up an elite “Resettlement Surge Center” in Amman, Jordan, which cut the processing time to three months. From two years to three months. They have assured us that no security protocols have been sacrificed to achieve the 87.5 percent efficiency improvement. I know I believe them. How about you.
The fact that two of the ISIS terrorists who attacked Paris posed as refugees to enter France should be of no concern now that the Kerry State Department is on the case – or the fact that Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said that ISIS was “taking advantage of the torrent of migrants [entering Europe] to insert operatives into that flow.”
I mean – just looking at the success Obama and Kerry have had in dealing with Iran should put your mind at ease.
Another thing that should give us NO pause is that of the 10,000 refugees admitted, 47 were Christian, or less than one half of one percent. Well over 9,700 are Sunni Muslim, 85 are Shi’a and the rest “simply identified themselves as Muslims.”
Well that’s great news. What can possibly go wrong, as almost 10,000 “thoroughly vetted” Muslims are quietly shuttled off to about 180 cities across the nation?
