For months, ISIS and other terrorist groups have been using the situation in Syria to get into Europe and the United States by using fake passports; including at least one in the recent terrorist attack in Paris. ISIS has even bragged about the success of their “Trojan Horse” plan. In fact, eight suspected ISIS fighters were just detained in Istanbul yesterday, who were on their way to Europe, posing as Syrian refugees.
Yet, despite a myriad of legitimate reasons to be concerned about the likelihood of ISIS fighters posing as refugees coming to America, President Obama defies all common sense and repeatedly hurls accusations and insults at Republicans who want to put a hold on his plan to bring up to TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND Syrian refugees to our country over the next two years.
Then in Manilla last night, President Obama again mocked Republicans, saying they’re “scared of widows and orphans…worried about three year old orphans, and went on to accuse them of giving ISIS recruiting tools as he always does. Well, as God would have it, it appears that when President Obama made the above slur against Republicans, he wasn’t aware that Senators Chuck Schumer and Joe Manchin agree with Republicans. And he probably didn’t know that New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan had joined thirty Republican governors calling for a ban on additional Syrian refugees coming to the United States as well. But President Obama’s “smack down” didn’t stop there because even though he should be (and probably is) very much aware that there are ISIS terrorist training camps for children as young as four years old (as reported in this article), he sure didn’t know they’d get so much attention in the news on the heels of his shameful statement; including on PBS’ Frontline last night.
In any case, it’s clear to the vast majority of Americans by now that something has to be done to protect our country and that President Obama can’t be trusted to do that; so Representative Mike McCall introduced a bill last September to put a halt to President Obama’s plans to bring thousands of Syrian refugees to the United States without proper vetting and to require Congressional approval before implementing such a plan. Here’s more information about the Refugee Resettlement Oversight and Security Act and its status. According to various news reports, the bill will go on a “fast track” and should be voted on in the House of Representatives in coming days.
So this is the time for Americans to take a strong stand against President Obama’s unthinkable plan to bring potential ISIS fighters into America by letting our congressional representatives know what we think about the above bill and what the President’s doing; remember, most of them feel the same way we do and it’s important for them to know that we’re behind them 100%!

One of my very favorite passages of Scripture is John 8:31-32 because it says, Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” That’s why it’s so important to me to do my part to help open the eyes of those who “want” to see…because at this time in our history, that’s the ONLY way we’ll STAY free! And now that some of the most influential Democrat leaders are starting to put aside political considerations for the sake of our country, I’m actually optimistic that the truth is winning and God is beginning to heal our land!
