Editor’s Note: Call the Governor’s Office and DEMAND protection from this foreign invasion (615) 741-2001. It is past time to consider impeachment of Gov. Haslam who: caved to unconstitutional and evil Supreme Court “OPINION” contrary to our State Constitution; LIED about Amendment 2 giving us the “right” to vote for judges when it actually removed the language giving the people the right to elect justices; and continues to lie and misdirect efforts to remove tyrannical Common Core from Tennessee.

The carnage created by Muslim jihadists in Paris over the weekend must inevitably raise the question of continuing to allow Islamic immigration to the United States.
Of particular concern is that we have now discovered that at least two of the perpetrators of the Muslim massacre in France were masquerading as poor helpless Syrian immigrants, of the very kind President Obama is importing into the U.S. in droves. In fact, the president is accelerating the process by setting up foreign offices to expedite their transfer to our shores. Hillary Clinton, who wants to be our next president, also wants to import 65,000 more of them.
All this while ISIS is openly bragging that they have smuggled literally thousands of jihadis into the West through our well-intentioned but mindless refugee program.
Wisely, Michigan’s governor Rick Snyder is immediately suspending his state’s plan to process Syrian refugees. Alabama’s governor is doing the same. Bobby Jindal, Louisiana’s governor, wants more information about the refugees Obama is dumping into New Orleans. And several of the GOP candidates, including Ted Cruz and the pro-amnesty Marco Rubio, have called for an immediate suspension of the refugee program.
Even ruling class Republican Jeb Bush, he of amnesty proclivities, is now advocating that America’s refugee program be reserved for Christian refugees fleeing Islamic persecution. Certainly he is right to do so.
What public officials should say is this: “Our arms are open to refugees, but not to Muslim jihadists. Until we have a reliable way to tell the difference between the two, we simply cannot afford the risk.”
This does not at all mean we turn our backs on Muslims seeking refuge. Our refugee efforts with regard to Muslims fleeing war should be quite simple. There are 57 Muslim nations in the world. If we take Muslims at their word, Islam is a religion of peace. This means that there should be 56 havens of Islamic tranquility and stability as possible destinations for Muslim refugees fleeing war in their homeland. Let’s help them find the Islamic nation of their choice. Let’s even help them get there. Meanwhile, let’s bring Christian refugees to our shores. Muslim lands for Muslim refugees, Christian lands for Christian refugees.
The unfortunate reality is that, as things are configured right now, the refugee program in particular and Islamic immigration in general represent grave threats to the security of the United States and the safety of its citizens.
Our own FBI has made it repeatedly clear that we have absolutely no way to vet Muslim refugees from Syria. We have no access to Syrian records at all. No arrest records, no prison records, no record of scrapes with the law. Nothing. We have no way to identify those Muslim refugees that might represent a clear and present danger to us.
Until all Muslim immigrants, not just refugees, can be properly screened, the process should be suspended entirely. The risk of importing committed…
