Feds overreaching power endangers North Carolina

State governors and safety officials discover we are unwilling hosts to tens of thousands of unknown Middle Eastern “refugees” from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq, plus many more from who-knows-where, thanks to the arrogant, subversive Obama administration.

The identities of these people are unknown except for a little that might be revealed to nonprofit charities that accept them. Unfortunately, they aren’t required to divulge information to State authorities because of “various privacy laws.”

Dan Way, associate editor for the Carolina Journal reported on this problem in the May 2016 print edition (online at carolinajournal.com).

Threats to us from potential Islamic enemy terrorists hiding in these populations are real and serious, if not imminent, according to many State and federal officials.

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory is greatly concerned about this clandestine operation. U. S. representative Richard Hudson from North Carolina’s 8th Congressional District has warned that this program poses “a potential threat” to the State.

Rep. Hudson last year introduced the American Safe Act that “overwhelmingly” passed the House, but “Senate Democrats blocked it from coming to that body for a vote.” His bill would have barred entry to the U. S. by any Iraqi or Syrian national without a thorough FBI director-certified background check.

According to Rep. Hudson Obama plans to bring in 1500 Syrians each month—about 18,000 per year. Democrats want to raise that number to 100,000. From January 2014 to April 2016, 839 Syrians, Afghanis and Iraqis have been relocated in North Carolina—during that period more than 39,000 have been sent to 16 States, according figures from the U.S. Department of State Refugee Processing Center.

But we know virtually nothing about these people.

Last February at the National Governor’s Association meeting Gov. McCrory wanted to ask President Obama about this situation, but he “wouldn’t take my question.”

North Carolina State Rep. John Szoka, retired Army officer, said, “Make no mistake, ISIS is our enemy…they’ve told us that they are our enemy. In fact, in North Carolina they’ve told us that Fayetteville and New Bern are targets that they want to hit.”


Obama’s clear messages to the States: Who cares? Who’s going to stop me?

Unprecedented, this president has shown disdain for traditional America. He dismisses our laws; encourages violent anti-police factions; uses government regulators to shut down our critical energy industries; and illegally brings in people from enemy countries.

Of course, he would never get away with these subversive actions without support from Marxists who now control our national government and institutions established to help protect us from these people—education and media.

Americans cannot claim they weren’t warned. Obama told us he intended to “fundamentally change” this country—with screaming cheers from the cultists and votes from ignorant people who supported him.

Worse, the people we elected to oppose evil intents failed to stop his arrogant imperial decrees. Adding insult to injury the Republican establishment supported weak, timid and clueless presidential candidates in the last two elections.

The States remain the only bastions of safety and liberty for Americans. But we will need aggressive and courageous governors and legislatures to stand firm against the dangers of federal corruption and power. Our very existence depends on it.
