Yes Prime Minister Global Warming

Portraying the government of England as also in Australia, this video presents comedy with massive amounts of truth and fact subject to public servant manipulation sustaining their manufactured fictional global warming hysteria to dumb down the people. All the players have doubles in houses of parliament, all thriving on agenda misleading the people. ENJOY – it’s happening in a parliament near you.

 

Lindt Café: a carousel of catastrophe

Recent comments from the Coroner exposed gaping flaws in police capability

by Gil Hanrahan in Sydney

Any ten year old kid who has fired a .177 Daisy air rifle would know that low velocity lead pellets do not fragment nor in most instances, ricochet.

Police at the Lindt Café siege in 2014 should have possessed the same knowledge. Supposedly trained SWAT policemen too should have known this basic ballistic tenet.

More revelations about the police blunders were aired during the recent Coroners report into the deaths of Tori Johnson and Katrina Dawson.

NSW SWAT policemen about to storm the Lindt Café where Muslim terrorist Man Monis held 18 hostages in 2014

One unit threw flash grenades about the foyer before entering the café, thus blinding and deafening themselves before getting into the café.

The shooter at Port Arthur obviously was not in the same situation. He wore ear plugs or he would have had concussion from the firearm muzzle energy and excruciating noise of repeated firing in a confined space.

The police blundered into the cafe, one on top of the other falling about in the dark, waving around and blazing their H & K .223 high velocity assault rifles at an indistinguishable target.

Travelling at 3300 feet per second these 55 grain projectiles are lethal if they directly hit a target or if a bullet hits a hard wall and ricochets or fragments.

The officer who actually hit the gunman fired 17 rounds in three seconds clearly demonstrating he had not been trained to shoot in a confined space, tactical response situation.

Another officer was actually wounded by shrapnel from either his own or his partner’s firearm.

Hostages Katrina Johnson and Tori Johnson could have been saved

The young barrister, Katrina Dawson, did not have a chance. Of course bullet fragments had to go somewhere and they did, killing an innocent young mother with shrapnel.

Commissioner Scipione was not about to allow the highly trained army anti- terrorist unit that was on standby, poised and ready to move from Holdsworthy Army Base, to take out the terrorist. This would look bad for the cops.

This error of judgement by a Police Commissioner who went home to bed for the night while 10 highly distressed innocent café patrons and eight staff cowered under the mad terrorist’s shotgun, left command of the siege to the totally hopeless and inept Assistant Commissioner Catherine Burns.

Assistant Commissioner Catherine Burns, inept and unable to make a decision

For this the families of the two murdered hostages and NSW should be thankful. Commissioner Andrew Scipione has retired will not again be at the helm of another disaster, and nor should his Commander Jenkins.

Café manager Tori Johnson died needlessly at the muzzle of  mad Man Monis’ 12 gauge shotgun.

The army anti-terrorist unit would have stormed the café within an hour of assessing the siege situation. Tori and Katrina would not have died.

Only two officers were needed to enter the café through each door. Armed with HK MP5 assault rifles chambered in 9mm calibre, these lower velocity, copper jacketed lead projectiles travelling at 1300 fps do not fragment, rarely ricochet and are effective at close range.

The snipers had a chance to take out Man Monis on several occasions by firing through a plate glass window.

Who knows what firearms the snipers had that night. They should have been armed with a minimum .30 calibre sniper rifle such as a 7mm Remington Magnum or a .300 Winchester Magnum, highly effective sniper rifles at any distance.

If they had been properly trained they would have used 150 grain armour piercing, boat tailed projectiles that could have punched a hole through plate glass or even medium armoured glass at the close range they were offered.
There would have been little collateral damage.

Instead no sniper fired a shot. The mad Islamic terrorist might have had a bomb in his back pack but If they had shot him in the head at 50 metres through the glass, the bomb factor would have been irrelevant.

The police protect their own and for the new Commissioner, Mick Fuller, interviewed on Four Corners, it was obviously extremely hard for him make his best admission, “we could have gone in earlier.”

Well Commissioner, where was your apology to the Dawson and Johnson families?

The people of Inner Sydney can be thankful there was not more than one terrorist.

 

Qld Govt at war with itself over $7m cattle property purchase

More jaundiced reporting from the ABC about Springvale Station west of Cooktown that the Queensland Environment Department bought for $7 million to prevent sediment runoff into the ocean.

The only problem is that bogus data was used to base the purchase, when in fact the Government’s own previously published scientific data clearly showed Springvale Station was responsible for less than one per cent runoff into Princess Charlotte Bay.

See story Cairns News: ‘Lakefield National Park contributes more reef runoff than all combined cattle properties in the catchment’

from ABC

In what could be a storyline from the satirical TV series Yes Minister, the Queensland Government has gone to war with itself.

Key points:

  • The Mines Department is considering an application to mine a river on state-owned land for gold and tin
  • The Environment Department bought the land in a bid to halt sediment reaching the reef
  • The two departments are in a legal fight in the Land Court

The ABC has learned one Queensland Government department has lodged a legal objection to another department over a plan to mine a river on state-owned land.

The Department of Environment and Heritage Protection is taking on the Department of Natural Resources and Mines in a stoush in the Land Court over Springvale Station on Cape York.

The Queensland Government bought the massive cattle station for $7 million last year.

The idea was to stop, or at least reduce, hundreds of thousands of tonnes of sediment from the property washing from the West Normanby River into the Great Barrier Reef.

But it seems — in the best traditions of Yes Minister — the left hand did not know what the right hand was doing.

At the same time the Environment Department was buying the property to prevent damaging sediment flowing down the river, the Natural Resources Department was considering an application to mine the river at Springvale Station for gold and tin ore.

Now the case is before the Queensland Land Court.

In its objection, the Environment Department argues “the public right and interest will be prejudiced by the proposed mining activity as it will directly and negatively impact the biodiversity values for which the property was acquired”.

It says research suggests that “Springvale Station is the source of approximately 460,000 tonnes of sediment runoff every year, which is around 40 per cent of all gully erosion-derived sediment in the Normanby River catchment”.

The West Normanby River joins the eastern branch of the river before draining into Princess Charlotte Bay and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

“The proposed mining activity will likely further destabilise the alluvial and colluvial soils of the West Normanby River and increase soil erosion and sediment loss,” the Environment Department said in its objection.

“… The long-term economic benefits of enhancing environmental outcomes through this acquisition will far exceed the economic and employment benefits of this small mining operation.”

The department also warns sedimentation blocks light for coral, smothers marine organisms and reduces coral and seagrass growth.

It states the northern section of the reef has been significantly affected by coral bleaching, with “high levels of coral mortality”.

“For those corals to have the best chance of recovery, the water quality needs to be as good as possible,” the Environment Department wrote.

Endangered plants, animals on land: Environment Department

The State Government has already begun removing cattle from Springvale Station in a bid to reduce sediment run-off.

The Environment Department said it would invest a substantial amount of public money for conservation work on the property to further reduce run-off, with the price tag set at $30,000 a hectare.

The department also said the property was home to endangered or vulnerable flora and fauna species, including the northern quoll, red goshawk, brown antelope orchid and spectacled flying fox.

In a statement to the ABC, the Environment Department said it was the Government’s “intention that Springvale Station be declared a nature refuge”.

But it said such a declaration would “not necessarily preclude the commencement of activities proposed under the mining lease application”.

A spokesman for the Land Court said the objection to the proposed mine would be heard in August.

Phillipines under siege: ISIS battle plans revealed in leaked video

From Horn News

Have you read this in mainstream media?

It’s grainy and low-tech… but the contents are deadly. Get inside a secret meeting of ISIS terrorists plotting the deadly siege of the Philippine city of Marwari… on the back of a monthly calendar. See the startling first-hand video that’s going viral.

It was an audacious plot sketched out in chilling detail with blue pens on the back of a paper calendar: Islamic militants in the Philippines, including one of the world’s most-wanted militant leaders, would take over a key southern city in their boldest attack to date.

With unsettling calm, they spoke of taking hostages from a school, sealing off roads and capturing a highway “so the people will get scared.”

Video footage and a separate screen-grab image of that secret meeting, obtained exclusively by The Associated Press, offer a rare glimpse into the clandestine operations of insurgents who followed through two weeks ago with an unprecedented assault on the lakeside city of Marawi, parts of which they still occupy today.

The images also provide the first visual proof that a nascent alliance of local Muslim fighters are not only aligned with the Islamic State group, but coordinating and executing complex attacks together. Among those at the table was the purported leader of the Islamic State’s Southeast Asia branch, Isnilon Hapilon, who is on Washington’s list of most-wanted terrorists and has a $5 million bounty on his head.

The footage is believed to be the first of Hapilon since he and several other Filipino militants pledged allegiance to IS in 2014. The military had said he was wounded in a January airstrike; in the video, however, there are no indications that he is injured. Hapilon appears sitting with other militants at a table, wearing a yellow and black headscarf with a pistol beside his folded arms.

Military chief of staff Gen. Eduardo Ano confirmed the identities of those present, including Hapilon, who resembles other images said to be of him, such as those on FBI wanted posters. The militants have no spokesman and do not generally issue statements.

The images show that the insurgent alliance “has this intention of not only rebellion, but actually dismembering a portion of the Philippine territory by occupying the whole of Marawi city and establishing their own Islamic state or government,” said Ano.

The military has an interest in allowing the AP to make the footage public. On Monday, six lawmakers petitioned the Supreme Court to nullify President Rodrigo Duterte’s imposition of martial law in the south — homeland of minority Muslims in the largely Roman Catholic country — casting doubt on the gravity of the crisis there. Ano said the reality that “a full-blown rebellion” is underway should convince skeptics that this is not just “a small problem.”

Government troops discovered the video on a cellphone they seized during a May 23 raid on a Marawi safe house where Hapilon and other militants were believed to be hiding. They said the video had been filmed a day or two earlier. It was not possible to independently verify that claim. But a separate screen grab of the same meeting, obtained by the AP from an anti-terrorism agent, showed a calendar the militants were writing on that was dated 2017.

An army official allowed the AP to record the video as it played on a laptop computer.

Ano said the insurgents had been planning to attack Marawi on May 26, the start of Ramadan in the south. But the raid cut their preparations short and triggered instant clashes. Had the assault not been pre-empted, the militants likely would have seized more territory and inflicted far more damage.

As it stands, the fighting has been unprecedented; while militants have launched major attacks before, never before has any group occupied territory in the heartland of the Philippines’ Islamic faith for this long. Two weeks after the conflict began, at least 178 people have been killed and the army is still battling to regain control with airstrikes and artillery.

The militants, who are believed to be holding a Catholic priest and many other hostages, have torched buildings and destroyed at least one church. Ano said they occupy 10 percent of the city and have positioned snipers in tall buildings. Much of the city center has been devastated.

The crisis in Marawi, combined with fears that the Islamic State group is breathing new life into Muslim insurgencies in Southeast Asia, has put the Philippines and the region on edge.

On Friday, when a masked gunman began shooting and burning gambling tables in a Manila casino, terrified patrons immediately assumed an Islamic State siege was underway. The radical group claimed responsibility for the attack, in which dozens of people died of smoke inhalation, but there has been no evidence to back that claim. Police insist the motive was robbery, and the gunman’s family says he was a disgruntled gambling addict.

Still, the episode highlighted what House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez described as the “unsettling inadequacy” of public security in the capital. The attack, he said, should “serve as a wake-up call” to do something about it.

A security conference this past weekend in Singapore attended by defense ministers and experts from 39 nations produced a flurry of alarmed statements. Among the topics: a fear that places like Marawi could become a new base for the Islamic State group as it loses territory in the Middle East.

“If the situation in Marawi in the southern Philippines is allowed to escalate or entrench, it would pose decades of problems,” said Singapore Defense Minister Ng Eng Hen. “All of us recognize that if not addressed adequately, it can prove a pulling ground for would-be jihadists.”

The southern Philippines already is.

Of the 120 militants killed in Marawi so far, at least eight are known to be foreign fighters, including a Chechen, a Yemeni and several Malaysians and Indonesians, according to Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana.

Hapilon’s pledge of allegiance, meanwhile, may have already paid off. His faction has received a “couple of million dollars” from the Islamic State, Lorenzana said.

In the video clip obtained by the AP, which runs for just over two minutes, a long-haired man identified by the military as Abdullah Maute addresses other militant leaders gathered around a white plastic table.

Pointing to a crude sketch of Marawi’s main streets and speaking in Tagalog and Marawi’s Maranao dialect, he declares, “We’ll take this first and then here.”

“Or,” he says, “we can go here first. We seal this off so you’ll have a passageway. But we need to capture a highway so the people will get scared.” Another militant can be seen videotaping the clandestine meeting.

Maute is the leader of a militant group called the Islamic State Ranao — one of about 10 small armed Muslim groups that have also pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and have forged a loose alliance that now flies IS-style black flags.

Although virtually unheard of a few years ago, the military says they contributed over 260 of the fighters who attacked mosque-studded Marawi. Along with Hapilon’s group, they were blamed for a night market bombing in September that killed 15 people in the southern city of Davao, Duterte’s hometown.

Also appearing in the video clip are two of Maute’s brothers — Omarkhayam and Maddi — and another militant known as Abu Humam. Humam is a member of Khilafah Islamiyah Mindanao, a small group linked to a 2013 bombing that killed eight people in a bar in Cagayan de Oro, not far from Marawi.

The new armed groups are the latest offshoots of a decades-long Muslim separatist conflict fueled by wrenching poverty, weak law enforcement and a surfeit of weapons in the southern Philippines. The two biggest Muslim rebel groups, which have engaged in peace talks with the government, have not backed the militants who attacked Marawi and offered to help bring the siege to an end.

Hapilon’s militant alliance aims to establish a “wilayat,” or a provincial territory, that will form part of a caliphate in Southeast Asia, according to experts. Duterte says government forces will never allow them to do that or break away from the Philippines.

Etheridge Shire Council trying to nominate shire with United Nations for back door heritage listing

Geo-park plan rings alarm bells for North Qld graziers

A plan to declare the entire Etheridge Shire in Far North Queensland as a ‘global geo-park’ is ringing alarm bells for local graziers, AgForce said today.

AgForce Northern President Russell Lethbridge, who lives in the Etheridge Shire, said cattle production was the predominant industry in the shire and graziers wanted to know how a geo-park declaration would impact on their businesses.

Primary producers in Etheridge Shire are suspicious of a plan to nominate the shire for a possible UN world heritage listing. Mayor Warren Devlin(front), Cr’s Norm Garsden; Troy Barnes; Will Attwood reportedly support the application.

“The Etheridge Shire Council has announced they will seek a geo-park registration with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), but haven’t properly explained what it all means and how it will affect development opportunities,” he said.

“Graziers have seen how the Queensland Government have used UNESCO as a justification for tougher vegetation management restrictions, so are understandably suspicious about a plan to declare a UNESCO ‘Global Geopark’ over an area of some 40,000 square kilometres.

“AgForce has been inundated with calls from Far North graziers who want to know how a geo-park registration would impact on what they can and can’t do on their land, while there are also concerns about how this will affect the Gilbert River irrigated agricultural precinct.

“This issue is generating a lot of heat and has united graziers in the Etheridge Shire like no other issue I’ve seen before, so it is important the council and proponents of the geopark explain the motivation behind the proposal.

” Mr Lethbridge said AgForce had responded to the groundswell of concern by organising a meeting at the Georgetown Town Hall from 2pm on Friday 16th June to discuss the geo-park proposal.

“All landholders in the Etheridge Shire are invited to attend to tell us their views about the geo-park proposal, and to ask questions of council representatives,” he said.

“Graziers currently have more questions than answers and the meeting is an opportunity for everyone to learn more about the proposal and for proponents to outline their case.

“AgForce is committed to getting all the information to landholders so they can better understand the issue and make an informed decision based on all the facts.”

Crocodile invites pastor to lunch, leaves his underpants

A pastor in Zimbabwe was eaten by crocodiles when he decided to emulate Jesus, and attempt to walk on water. The pastor was trying to recreate the infamous biblical legend, which has been called a miracle by some, but his choice of waterways led to his demise.

According to Zimbabwe Today, Jonathan Mthethwa with the Saint of the Last Days Church attempted to perform the feat in a water body nicknamed “Crocodile River.” The river is widely known for its infestation with the deadly reptiles. Witnesses said Mthethwa made it 100 feet before crocodiles viciously attacked the man. The pastor had walked out into the water and was attempting to rise from it when he was brutally attacked.

Pastor walks on water in Zimbabwe but crocs invite him to lunch, The only missing ingredient was a Green salad. They left his underpants floating on the river.

Deacon Nkosi, a church member, reportedly said, “They finished him in a couple of minutes. All that was left of him when they finished eating him is a pair of sandals and his underwear floating above the water.” Nkosi then said, “We still don’t understand how this happened because he fasted and prayed the whole week.” But the crocodiles made it obvious that they didn’t care much about the fasting beforehand. Emergency crews were on the scene within 30 of the initial attack, but it was all over by then. All they found was the single sandal and the underwear.

Before attempting the feat, Mthethwa brought his congregation to the river to witness his attempts to walk on water. Horrified members of the Saint of the Last Days Church said the pastor was completely devoured in a “couple of minutes”.

“The pastor taught us about faith on Sunday last week. He promised he would demonstrate his faith to us today, but he, unfortunately, ended up drowning and getting eaten by 3 large crocodiles in front of us,” said Deacon Nkosi.

It only took three crocodiles less than five minutes to completely consume a full grown man. But crocodile attacks happen often in Zimbabwe. Efforts have even been taken to reduce the number of crocodiles in certain waterways to protect people.

A police spokesman said, “This year we had too much rains and it is obvious crocodiles are certainly there in our rivers. Villagers should not risk their lives by swimming or trying to cross the flooded rivers.” It seems like common sense – to not try to walk on water in crocodile infested rivers. Tempting fate certainly isn’t for the faint of heart. Or those afraid of death.

Bank operations and exposure needs addressing NOW!

Why would a government chartered by the constitution to protect the people be so reluctant for a Royal Commission into Australian banking when overwhelming public evidence suggests a pungent smell of endemic criminal corruption is abundant, reflecting a vested political interest.

You may find the attached paper of interest.

We thank Betty Luks of Australian League of Rights for presenting this paper to sosnews for our readers to review. The International Review of Financial Analysis published by Elsevier Inc was invited to present a submission to the Iceland government in the aftermath of the banking collapses in 2008.

The big four taxpayer protected banks have developed their unchallenged rule book void of all serious accountability and shrouded in government protection that now rides on shaky ground.

There is escalating support in the upper house to investigate banks with extremely wide terms of reference reporting back to the parliament, not the Executive.  This does not apply to a Royal Commission which is implemented by the Cabinet which can appoint allied commissioners and terms of reference, which is then reviewed from behind closed doors of the executive alleviating any input from the people’s parliament.

International Review of Financial Analysis Introduction

Thanks to the recent banking crises interest has grown in banks and how they operate.

In the past, the empirical and institutional market micro-structure of the operation of banks had not been a primary focus for investigations by researchers, which is why they are not well covered in the literature.

One neglected detail is the banks’ function as the creators and allocators of about 97% of the money supply (Werner, 1997, 2005), which has recently attracted attention (Bank of England, 2014a,b; Werner, 2014b,c).

It is the purpose of this paper International Review of Financial Analysis published by Elsevier Inc to investigate precisely how banks create money, and why or whether companies cannot do the same.

Since the implementation of banking operations takes place within a corporate accounting framework, this paper is based upon a comparative accounting analysis perspective. By breaking the accounting treatment of lending into two steps, the difference in the accounting operation by bank and non-bank corporations can be isolated.

As a result, it can be established precisely why banks are different and what it is that makes them different: They are exempted from the Client Money Rules and thus, unlike other firms, do not have to segregate client money. This enables banks to classify their accounts payable liabilities arising from bank loan contracts as a different type of liability called ‘customer deposits’.

The finding is important for many reasons, including for modelling the banking sector accurately in economic models, bank regulation and also for monetary reform proposals that aim at taking away the privilege of money creation from banks.

The paper thus adds to the growing literature on the institutional details and market micro-structure of our financial and monetary system, and in particular offers a new contribution to the literature on ‘what makes banks different’, from an accounting and regulatory perspective, solving the puzzle of why banks combine lending and deposit-taking operations under one roof.

Turnbull, Governor General subpoenaed by defence to Cairns court

by Robert J Lee in Cairns

Cairns will soon be graced with an unexpected visit by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull who has been subpoenaed to attend the Cairns Magistrate Court on May 22 to give evidence for the defence in a vexatious and false prosecution.

Not only will Cairns city host the PM, but none other than The Governor General Sir Peter Cosgrove has been joined in the action to explain how he  holds office under the fictitious Queen of Australia and is being paid in dollars instead of pounds, shillings and pence, as required by the Constitution. It should be noted the Queen has not ever assented to the Decimal Currency Act 1965.

In case the GG gets lonely in the Far North, his Queensland counterpart, former Chief Justice Paul de Jersey and now Governor also has been served with a subpoena to attend.

Former Queensland Chief Justice Paul de Jersey now Governor has been subpoenaed to appear in a Cairns court case for the defence to explain how he allowed renegade Premier Peter Beattie to create a Queensland republic by removing the Queen from all statutes.

He has been requested to explain how he, as Governor continues to allow the State business to function after former Premier Peter Beattie  turned Queensland into ‘My Government’ of the Smart State, in effect a republic, without a referendum of the people in 2001.

Then if things get out of hand, Queensland Police Commissioner Ian Stewart has been commanded to appear to tell the court how he allowed armed SWAT policemen to gate crash David John Walter’s Herberton home then steal his firearms when the state government is a registered foreign corporation listed on the Washington Stock Exchange and has no authority over any person

who is not a member of a political party.

Retired police prosecutor David Walter has subpoenaed Malcolm Turnbull PM to appear in his defence against a vexatious prosecution. Walter subpoenaed Police Commissioner Ian Stewart to explain how he allowed a SWAT team to raid his home and take his firearms.

Prosecutor, David Walter says Mr. Malcolm Turnbull MP, like all Australian politicians is only a private person and a member of a registered political party within the Unicameral Parliaments of Australia, attested by holding a signed, dated, sealed, commercial contract with former Premier Peter Beattie of Queensland – Queensland the Smart State – in the creation of unicameral parliaments of Australia, known as the Australian Government.

The Cairns show promises to be a blockbuster of unimaginable proportions the likes of which have not been seen since federation in this country.

All citizens are invited to attend the Cairns court at 9am on Monday, May 22, 2017 to witness freedom in the making.

Sacked FBI Director warned of terrorist refugees entering US

The Rudd Government allowed 120,000 refugees of unknown origin to enter Australia by air

from The Horn News

Just before he was fired, FBI Director James Comey dropped a truth bomb on the floor of the U.S. Senate: President Donald Trump was right.

Our broken refugee policy is killing us.

Accepting refugees from the Middle East has let hundreds of would-be terrorists enter the United States, he told the Senate last Wednesday.

Comey testified that the FBI was investigating at least 2,000 terrorists nationwide – and about 15 percent of them got into the United States by posing as “refugees.”

“You take that 2,000-plus cases, about 300 of them are people who came to the United States as refugees,” he told North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis.

Sacked FBI Director says Islamic terrorists have entered the country posing as refugees

One Muslim terrorist killed 49 people in Orlando. Two pulled off the shootings in San Bernardino. And 18 managed to kill about 3,000 people on 9/11. Who knows how much damage 300 could do?

Comey said the terrorists are everywhere – no corner of America is safe. The terror investigations include all 50 states, including small communities.

Immigration officials were amazed in 2011, when they found two al-Qaeda terrorists living in the U.S. after posing as “refugees.” The Muslim terrorists – who had killed American soldiers in Iraq – had settled in Bowling Green, Kentucky. One of them was living in government housing on the taxpayers’ dime. The FBI recorded them planning a “huge” attack in the U.S.

As bad as that is, the problem’s actually worse –- much worse. The refugee terrorist problem is even bigger than the numbers let on. The 2,000 FBI investigations include everybody suspected of terrorism, from the Ku Klux Klan to Barack Obama’s old buddies in the Weather Underground.

A lot of those terrorists are Americans. That means refugees make up an even bigger percentage of immigrant terrorists than the government wants to let on.

That wasn’t even the most shocking part of Comey’s testimony. He said that if Donald Trump’s travel ban had been in effect, it would have kept all of these potential terrorists from ever setting foot in the United States.

Comey testified that every single one of those 300 refugees came from the seven Muslim nations Trump wanted to place under a temporary immigration ban: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

But instead, left-wing judges have struck down both his executive orders. Now, the floodgates are open.

The United States has admitted more than 5,500 refugees from these seven Muslim countries since Donald Trump has been president – more than 50 a day. How many of these will end up under investigation for terror?

The Hate Trump crowd doesn’t care. It considers spiting Trump more important than protecting their own country. And they seem to live in an alternate reality when it comes to terrorism.

Senator Chuck Schumer said Trump’s executive order “makes us less safe, not more. It is mean-spirited, and un-American.” 800 diplomats signed a cable to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in February saying a refugee ban would make America less safe.

Not to be outdone, the United Nations issued a report saying that tough immigration measures “may in fact be damaging to state security.”

That would be news to countries that have admitted refugees in massive numbers, like most of Europe. ISIS used the refugee crisis to infiltrate the continent and kill the infidel.

Last summer, there were three separate attacks by refugees inside Germany within a week – two of them on the same day.

ISIS managed to get its murderers into Paris by posing as refugees. The November 2015 Paris attacks left 130 people dead.

And not all the terrorists were refugees – some of them just used the refugee chaos to help cover their tracks. One of the people who planned the Brussels bombing last March was a Swedish-born Muslim of Syrian heritage. Swedish police knew he was a radical. But he eluded them by slipping into Greece and re-entering Europe as a “refugee.”

The Brussels bombing killed 32 people.

Trump’s executive order would have kept at least 300 potential terrorists out of the country – but experts say it’s not really enough to keep us safe. We need a much tougher policy.

“Better, tougher, more thorough vetting isn’t likely to make any difference since refugees really are pretty thoroughly vetted,” wrote immigration reformer Mark Krikorian wrote in National Review. “The problem is that vetting people from failed or enemy states is impossible.”

Donald Trump would have bought a little time to figure out how to deal with that problem. But the “resistance” shot even that down.

If one of these murderers pulls off their terrorist intentions, the PC liberals will have the blood of Americans on their hands.

Trump – and Comey – tried to warn them.
