Remember when President Obama promised to fundamentally transform the United States of America? I’m wondering how long it will be until we no longer recognize our country. We’re all well aware of the massive expansion of the welfare state, the skyrocketing national debt, the wreckage of Obamacare and the influx of illegal immigrants at the southern border. Well, now here are a couple of more things to consider.
A Breitbart News review of State Department and Homeland Security data reveals that the United States already admits more than a quarter of a million Muslim migrants each year. President Obama intends to add another 10,000 Syrian migrants on top of that.
In 2013 alone, 117,423 migrants from Muslim-majority countries were permanently resettled within the United States— having been given lawful permanent resident status. Additionally in 2013, the United States voluntarily admitted an extra 122,921 temporary migrants from Muslim countries as foreign students and foreign workers as well as 39,932 refugees and asylees from Muslim countries.
Thus, twelve years after the September 11th hijackers were invited into the country on temporary visas, the U.S. decided to admit 280,276 migrants from Muslim countries within a single fiscal year.
To put these numbers into perspective, this means that every year the U.S. admits a number of Muslim migrants larger in size than the entire population of Des Moines, Iowa; Lincoln, Nebraska; or Dayton, Ohio. (Read More)
If that’s not bad enough, now we have the “Black Lives Matter” anti-police movement that’s wreaking havoc in US cities. You don’t hear Obama saying much about that, or standing up for law enforcement.
After two decades of the most remarkable crime drop in U.S. history, law enforcement has come to this: “I’m deliberately not getting involved in things I would have in the 1990s and 2000s,” an emergency-services officer in New York City tells me. “I won’t get out of my car for a reasonable-suspicion stop; I will if there’s a violent felony committed in my presence.”
A virulent antipolice campaign over the past year—initially fueled by a since-discredited narrative about a police shooting in Ferguson, Mo.—has made police officers reluctant to do their jobs. The Black Lives Matter movement proclaims that the police are a lethal threat to blacks and that the criminal-justice system is pervaded by racial bias. The media amplify that message on an almost daily basis. Officers now worry about becoming the latest racist cop of the week, losing their job or being indicted if a good-faith encounter with a suspect goes awry or is merely distorted by an incomplete cellphone video.
With police so discouraged, violent crime has surged in at least 35 American cities this year. The alarming murder increase prompted an emergency meeting of the Major Cities Chiefs Association last month. Homicides were up 76% in Milwaukee, 60% in St. Louis, and 56% in Baltimore through mid-August, compared with the same period in 2014; murder was up 47% in Minneapolis and 36% in Houston through mid-July.
But something more fundamental than even public safety may be at stake. There are signs that the legal order itself is breaking down in urban areas. (Read More)
How long until this comes to the suburbs?
Already this year 25 on-duty police officers have been killed. The latest was a 31 year old state trooper in Kentucky. If this keeps up, who is going to even want to be a cop in the future?
Oh, and then we have the military acting as one big social experiment. Watch what you wish for on that one.
As of this writing President Obama still has another 493 days in office, plenty of time to do a lot more damage. Heaven help us, because we all know the Republicans who control Congress aren’t doing anything useful.
