I think I’ve just discovered why Obama’s approval ratings are so high

There are folks who ask, how is it that Barack Obama can have high approval ratings…I think I’ve found the answer. It’s all about whom you poll. And there’s a group that certainly would have a favorable opinion of Obama.

As we reported yesterday, The U.S. government has mistakenly granted citizenship to at least 858 immigrants from countries of concern to national security or with high rates of immigration fraud who had pending deportation orders.

Oops!

According to the Homeland Security Department’s inspector general, the immigrants used different names or birthdates on their citizenship applications and the discrepancies weren’t caught because their fingerprints were not on file with government databases.

Now, in the famous words of Doc Holliday from the movie “Tombstone,” “ain’t that a daisy?”

Here’s the Obama administration recently celebrating its 10,000th Syrian refugee, vowing to step it up to 100,000 next year, and they can’t even vet the folks here now seeking U.S. citizenship. This is beyond incompetence; it stinks of abject willfulness to undermine the security and citizenship of these United States.

When Obama stated back in 2008, “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America”…we see almost daily an example of this grand design.

And just to remind y’all of something — Obama did claim household incomes had increased, according to a census bureau report. How many of you recall it was Obama who moved the census bureau out of the Commerce Department and right into the White House in 2009? You remember, the last census taken was 2011, and population assessment is used for determination of congressional districts.

The question that has to be asked is, who will hold Jeh Johnson (who recently addressed an Islamist group affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood) accountable? Why would our Department of Homeland Security “mistakenly” grant citizenship to immigrants from “special interest countries?” Maybe some folks are willing to say, move along, nothing here, but we have a serious trend with the Obama administration and we have to dig deeper and really inquire as to rather this happened “mistakenly” or not.

The recent Islamic terror incidents of this past weekend should cause us all concern. We have and are allowing the enemy within our gates. We are not monitoring travel with the level of precision necessary to preclude individuals to travel to certain countries and return to America.

I saw a video clip showing the father of the Minnesota jihadist, who has been in America for fifteen years, needing an interpreter for his interview. Ladies and gents, that is not assimilation; it is isolation and the establishment of fertile ground for the recruitment of domestic jihadism.

I know Barack Obama doesn’t want to utter the words, but the streets of America have become similar to the combat zones of Iraq and Afghanistan on his watch. The fact that we have IEDs (improvised explosive devices) being implemented in America is not something we should just dismiss — Obama does that quite well himself.

I remember coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan and really being attentive to piles of trash and garbage because those were always potential IED locations. Now, here in America we have to be more vigilant of garbage dumpsters as well as lone backpacks.

Funny, after San Bernardino and Orlando, Barack Obama blamed those Islamic terrorist attacks on gun control. Watch out, I’m just waiting for Obama to condemn pressure cookers and crock pots — speaking of a crock.

The long-term issue is that all of this will be carried forth if Hillary Clinton becomes president, who said she will continue Obama’s destruction work. Clinton has even stated she wants MORE Syrian refugees than Obama. There will be no scrutiny and control of our illegal immigration process, and you can expect more “mistaken” actions by a Homeland Security department under Hillary. Of course, being the type of person Hillary Clinton is, she’ll say anything to make herself seem as if she’ll take a tougher stand — but she won’t.

Thirty-seven Americans were wounded, injured, stabbed by Islamic terrorist jihadists, this past weekend. This is something that must be taken very seriously. Making the “mistake” of allowing nearly 900 immigrants from countries of concern to gain U.S. citizenship is an egregious and potentially nefarious occurrence. But, will anyone suffer consequences?

It’s our choice to inflict those consequences in these coming days at the ballot box. If we fail to do so, the real basket of deplorables will lay more IEDs on our streets.
