With France in so-called lock-down following last Friday’s jihad attack in Paris, today Germany coincidentally appears to be in a state of high emergency, following the sudden evacuation of two stadiums and cancellation of two major public events – an international soccer match (which was to be attended by Angela Merkel) and a concert.  Those situations you can review by clicking here.

Of more immediate importance, here in the USA much blustering has been done in the past few days by governors of the various states in the Union who bravely claim they are going to refuse to accept and house Mr Obama’s intended flood of 100,000 Syrian immigrants, which has already begun to arrive, ladies and gentlemen.

With thanks to Drudge, tonight I read a Bloomberg News report written by Josh Rogin on the incoming refugee issue.  The sinister crux of the matter is buried about halfway down the page and is not at all reflected in the innocuous headline:

Governors Press White House for Refugee Information

In a call with senior Obama administration officials Tuesday evening, several governors demanded they be given access to information about Syrian refugees about to be resettled by the federal government in their states. Top White House officials refused.

Did you get that?  They. R-E-F-U-S-E-D.

Over a dozen governors from both parties joined the conference call, which was initiated by the White House after 27 governors vowed not to cooperate with further resettlement of Syrian refugees in their states. The outrage among governors came after European officials revealed that one of the Paris attackers may have entered Europe in October through the refugee process using a fake Syrian passport. (The details of the attacker’s travels are still murky.)…

Yes.  Those little details are murky.  And my money says they’re going to remain murky for long time to come.

…On the call several Republican governors and two Democrats — New Hampshire’s Maggie Hassan and California’s Jerry Brown — repeatedly pressed administration officials to share more information about Syrian refugees entering the United States. The governors wanted notifications whenever refugees were resettled in their states, as well as access to classified information collected when the refugees were vetted….

Nice that Bloomberg News provides an heroic little feature for the Democrats – Jerry Brown is a leftist’s leftist.  But let’s go on.

…“There was a real sense of frustration from all the governors that there is just a complete lack of transparency and communication coming from the federal government,” said one GOP state official who was on the call…

Gosh.  I was getting worried there for a second or two.  I feel so much better now.  There is frustration abounding.  That will surely save us from what’s happening in Europe.  Frustration works well.

The administration officials, led by McDonough, assured the governors that the vetting process was thorough and that the risks of admitting Syrian refugees could be properly managed. He added that the federal government saw no reason to alter the current method of processing refugees.

Thorough vetting processThe risk can be managed.  Really.  And I’m sure McDonough said all of that with a straight face.  Why are we even taking on any risk, manageable or not?   Didn’t high officialdom in European countries offer similar assurances about their flood of immigrants from Muslim states?  But here’s the dagger to the heart:

Florida governor Rick Scott asked McDonough point blank if states could opt out of accepting refugees from Syria. McDonough said no, the GOP state official said.

Got that?  Governor Scott asked about opting out of accepting refugees.  What a nice, polite, sissified way to phrase a groveling request, especially if you’re genuinely interested in protecting your people from what just happened in Paris.

McDonough said, “NO.”

Do you think that smack-down caused any gubernatorial outrage or strong reactions?  Read on:

In a readout of the call Tuesday night, the White House said that several governors “expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to better understand the process and have their issues addressed.” The White House noted that “others encouraged further communication” from the administration about the resettlement of refugees…

Isn’t that special.  So, here we are.  Mr. Obama’s U.S. Government is opening the gates and inviting the barbarians whose life-long deep-seated ideology commands our destruction to come into our house.  Our government has completely abdicated its solemn responsibility to protect us from foreign enemies.

We’re on our own, folks.  Look to yourselves and your families.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
