    President Trump at a signing ceremony Jan. 24. He signed another executive order Jan. 27 pausing refugee resettlement for four months until ‘extreme vetting’ can be implemented.

    I cannot help noticing that talk about UNITED NATIONS ECONOMIC REFUGEES turns President Trump’s spine into cooked linguini. He flat refuses to call them United Nations Refugees. He has the authority to stop all refugees, and he certainly has the authority to make economic refugees temporary rather than permanent. Trump exercises none of those options; so I cannot see him taking a lot of heat for Jell-O Republicans:

    Watchdogs such as Ann Corcoran at Refugee Resettlement Watch said she is concerned that after the 120-day pause expires, things will go back to business as usual.

    “If it’s just a four-month moratorium that is nowhere near adequate,” Corcoran told WND. “This four months has to be used as an opportunity for Congress to reform the law, the Refugee Act of 1980, otherwise we’ll just be back to square one and they will all claim they did something when in fact they didn’t.”

    Corcoran said the Republican-controlled Congress was “too chicken” to do anything to reform the refugee system but they are happy to let Trump take the heat.

    One facet of the program that could stand to be changed is allowing the United Nations to pick which refugees get sent to America. These U.N.-selected refugees tend to be more Muslim than Christian, even though Christians are the victims of a declared genocide in the Middle East.​

    Since Trump refuses to call them United Nations Refugees maybe he can borrow a pair of balls from a true conservative and call them Jimmy Carter Refugees (Carter is the guy that Ronald Reagan beat like a drum.):

    Leading the charge against Trump’s executive orders Friday were the nine VOLAGs, which get paid by the government for every refugee they resettle in America — a conflict of interest none of them disclosed in their press releases. These VOLAGs include the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, the evangelical group World Relief, Church World Services, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Episcopal Migration Ministries, the International Rescue Committee, and the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants.

    The federal government pays these agencies $2,050 for every refugee they resettle in the U.S., and they’ve resettled more than 3 million since the Refugee Act of 1980 was signed by President Jimmy Carter.

    Establishment in full meltdown over Trump refugee orders

    Establishment in full meltdown over Trump refugee orders

    Allowing the Refugee Act of 1980 to stand is the same as being governed by the very people who gave the country open-borders and violent Muslims.

    A basket full of immigration laws need to be repealed. Unfortunately, repeal is anathema to the federal government because repeal admits to a stupid mistake. The 18th Amendment is the only constitutional amendment ever repealed. The laws passed for refugees and immigrants are worse than the 18th Amendment.

    Manufacturers build planned obsolescence into their products. Legislators are too stupid to see that obsolescence is automatically built-in to every touchy-feely law. The tragedy is that refusing to repeal bad laws when the evidence for repeal is clear kills countries and empires. On the plus side, repealing bad laws is a lot easier than repealing a constitutional amendment. Jell-O is the only thing that stands in the way.

    Finally, United Nations Refugees are economic refugees —— economic for churches and tax dollar hustlers irrespective of the First Amendment.

    Or we can call it what it really is. UN diaspora of Islam worldwide. Has 0 to do with economy. Has 0 to do with refugees. It is a UN directive.
    We are the US, not the UN. We voted "NO" to what France, Germany, Italy, and all the rest that are experiencing, "refugee remorse" are living through now.

    To The Irish Ram: Accepting refuges was originally restricted to people displaced by war. Even then the:

    contained strictly enforced restrictions. The United Nations invented economic refugees after they began dictating this country’s immigration policies; open-borders, etc. The entire “refugee industry” as it operates today must be shut down before the United Nations goes to the scrap heap.

    Slicing the EPA in half only creates a rehiring boondoggle for Democrats when they get control again. Repealing the Clean Air Act is the only solution:

    The Washington Examiner reported that President Trump plans to furlough 7,500 of the 15,000 people at the EPA.​

    Trump to fire half the EPA

    Don Surber: Trump to fire half the EPA

    The Affordable Care Act has nothing to do with healthcare. The Clean Air Act has nothing to do with clean air. Those two laws are the most destructive laws crying for repeal. Both laws are far more destructive than the:
    Laws attempting to legislate love, or morality, or health, tell law-abiding Americans what they must do rather than laws telling Americans what they must not do. Analyze the application of every such law and you will see that every one of them tells Americans who they must support with tax dollars.

    Finally, Tucker Carlson lays it out for a Lefty named J. Kevin Appleby. Sorry to say Carlson was wasting his time while Appleby got to spout his tax dollar talking points to Carlson’s large audience:

    I would like to know how many EPA parasites will work with Scott Pruitt. My guess is zero:

    “Scott Pruitt will be voted out of committee today,” the Wyoming Republican said. “He will get to the floor of the United States Senate and he will be confirmed as the next administrator of the EPA.”​
