In a stunning defeat for President Barack Obama on Thursday, the House passed a bill limiting Obama's plan to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees in New Orleans in 2016.

Obama had threatened to veto any such bill that crossed his desk. But that was before 47 of his own Democrats joined with all but 2 Republicans to pass the bill.

Senator Harry Reid says the bill is dead on arrival in the Senate. But if 47 Democrats say yay when the bill is voted on by the Senate, the bill will be veto-proof.

31 governors announced plans to block Obama's attempt to relocate Syrian refugees into their states.

At the G-20 Summit in Antalya, Turkey on Monday, Obama mocked Republicans for suggesting he relocate more Christians than Muslims from Syria. Christians have been murdered by ISIS rebels for their Christian beliefs.

But Obama doesn't see it for them.

"When individuals say that we should have a religious test and that only Christians — proven Christians — should be admitted — that’s offensive and contrary to American values," said Obama.

But House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy disagrees.

“It is against the values of our nation and the values of a free society to give terrorists the opening they are looking for by not tightening entry restrictions," he said after the vote on Thursday.

    Why can't England, Sweden, or any other European country take the refugees? Why must they come all the way over here? I don't hear Canada, China, or Japan volunteering. Better yet... send them to Africa.

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    I read that some were sent to Sweden and complained because their new homes were in the forest. Some refused to get off the bus because it was cold and they couldn't see their hands in front of their faces because it was so dark. Never mind that Sweden had cabins with kitchens, bedrooms and toilets ready for them.

    I agree. I pray all of this crap just stops... I have never understood the purpose of war, conflict, drama...the world is big enuff that we could literally stay away from those we dont fuxx with... problem is folk too greedy, most all wars imo are fought over money/resources.....

    Each and every country in this world has received asylum request from the Syrian people. Many of them including the UK Sweden, Jordan, Egypt and Denmark.Though the process and the wait can be long some countries have already taken in 100s of thousands

    I'm sorry these times call for this. People willing to blow themselves up is too much. We have enough crazies of our own to deal with can't even go to the movie theater or send our kids off to college because of terrorism. The US needs refugee programs for the good people of the south side of Chicago who want and need help relocating to a safer area for their children. Start here.

  • LibraGirlonly

    They won't do that because they don't want to help black folk heck they put the foreigners before us. Why do you think they are opening businesses in the black community. They thought that they could control these people.

  • Angela

    And where does it tell you that?

    Girl, if u read the Bible it's clearly there. U sound really misinformed.

  • 80sChild

    I don't have anything against the Syrian Refugees, it's horrible that they are fleeing for their lives. However, our Government has proven many times to be ineffective and inept and based on this track record, how can we have confidence that our Government can properly vet these Refugees to ensure ISIS or any other terrorist are not among them, we can't be sure!! The FBI Director and other Intel officials have said there are no papers and databases to check against in Syria, so you can't properly vet them, thus I oppose bringing these Refugees here!! Here's just another example of how Obama doesn't think things through.

    And why doesn't he have this sense of urgency for helping our veterans, veterans he has promised over and over since 2008 that the VA would be fixed and they will receive the proper medical care they deserve, but yet thousands of veterans are still dying.

    Now I read, ISIS is starting to make chemical weapons, but Obama and his Administration say they don't have the capabilities to do so. But the French and Iraqi officials say they do because they're recruiting scientists to help them make these chemical weapons. There's ole Obama underestimating ISIS again. As Christ Christie said the other day, Obama is a JOKE and I agree 100%. Oh, by the way, Obamacare is slowing imploding. I've told people it would implode because it simply can't sustain itself plus Obama never red the law smh. Its just a matter of time. A lot of people have been blind and oblivious to Obama's poor and dumb decisions and we're seeing negative consequences unfold before our eyes.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    AMEN!!!!!! Please Jesus!!!

  • the guest

    Exactly. This needs to be addressed with the POTUS. Chicago is his US mainland home. The hometown of the FLOTUS. Chicago is in a state of crisis babies are being shot and they want to help Syrian Refugees escape terrorists? Black children in the US can't walk to school in safety and there's no help for their families to move. Syrians are racist against black people yet black folks are defending them the hardest. The only reason they don't directly target black people is because they think of blacks as inferior, powerless, and not a threat. Black folks need to lobby to save black refugees right here in the US.

  • 80sChild

    Canada agreed to take 25,000 of the Syrian Refugees. The Republicans have been warning Obama for 3 years now he needed to create "No-Fly Zones" over there near Syria for these people to have a safe haven especially after Obama threatened Syria's president Assaad not to use chemical weapons against the Syrian people, but Obama never followed through with his threat. Assaad saw this as weakness on Obama's part and carried on with his ways, which resulted in the Syrian people having enough and they fled Syria in fear of their lives.

    Republican senators John McCain and Lindsay Graham have over and over warned Obama of the negative consequences of Obama's inaction, but as usual Obama ignored them. He rather spend time renaming mountains in Alaska, cruising the Alaskan wildlife, playing golf all over and making hamburger runs than getting a handle on what's going on in the Middle East. By the way, ISIS is positioning to take over Syria since Syria is so unstable which Obama was also warned about. So many people have ignored, or chose to be blind or were just oblivious to Obama's dumb and poor decisions, we're seeing the dire consequences now.

  • the guest

    These terrorists have no conscience. Every time there's a terrorist attack, the same thing with their neighbors saying he was a nice boy he was quiet going to college etc. They wear masks. Smile in your face and blow you up. They will die for Jihad and people need to understand that.

  • the guest

    amen.

  • the guest

    YES!

  • the guest

    This tells you they're arrogant and their going to come here and put on airs turn their nose up and crap on black people. Black folks please stop defending these people.

  • the guest

    Thank you for your informative comments. Message needs to be heard.

  • Angela

    Chapter&verse please?

  • Angela

    Well, from the few word conversation we have had today, I don't see how you can come to the conclusion that I'm Biblically misinformed.

  • casiepriest33

    Bc u are. anyone with any common sense who reads the Bible can see that Babylon is America baby I'm not here to do Bible study pick up the damn Bible and read for yourself I ain't got time. Because personally I don't care about your salvation that's on you you can lead you coons to the river but can't make you drink

  • Angela

    Where it says that America is Babylon and it's more doomed than the rest of the world. And the Bible book is 'Revelation'. There's no 's' on the end. YOU sound misinformed.

  • maleorderside

    We are a progun country....have the biggest military in the world...yet refugees scare us

  • maleorderside

    The less brown people in America the better is is for them.

  • casiepriest33

    It mentions a great nation that is above the others. It is the leader of the world in the most hated in the world can you think of any country that fits this description aside from America? Why are you arguing with me? You need to READ YOUR BIBLE. I CAN'T OFFER SALVATION. The only reason you care is because you are a coon and you love America. But America hate you b****. Google is your friend.

  • maleorderside

    It's not a batch of apples lol. These people will either die or join ISIS after being rejected by the west.

  • Angela

    Of course you don't have time because it doesn't say it in REVELATION. And you don't have to call names, just improve your argument.

  • maleorderside

    America unites when it comes to fear...but not to better the education system lol

  • sunni_daze

    Just likes there's always money for war, but not books.

  • maleorderside

    I refuse to whine about refugees being here. I'm sorry. Maybe some are terrorist...but so are the dudes already here who shoot up schools. Congress likes drama not progress.

  • casiepriest33

    Are you too stupid to see America has to pay for every injustice it has done? It is Babylon. Legalized gay marriage, slavery, killing of the indigenous, discrimination hatred Americas going to pay and we may have to deal with it too. Modern day Sodom and Gomorrah. Read revelations dummy. Ask your "pastah", lol

  • maleorderside

    Yay

  • maleorderside

    Class never fades...even if you're a refugee

  • Sincerity7

    There are a ton of other democratic countries they can flee too. USA ain't safe either. Terrorists be messing with us every 5-10 years it seems.

  • maleorderside

    Yeah but private companies profit from people being homeless. They get tons of grants for opening shitty shelters. So technically the %1 is happy so that's all that matters in America.

  • maleorderside

    Because they convince themselves that they are above brown people so will never vote along with them.

  • Angela

    Woooow. I never said I loved America because I do not. Babylon is made up of more than one nation not just America. I can see how people can think that because Revelation is a hard book to study. And I would never let my salvation be up to ANY HUMAN let alone a stranger on the net.

  • maleorderside

    Yeah but we have Target and Cable TV. It's worth the danger.

  • Angela

    And so does every other nation on the earth. God does not separate individual nations. He has his word the Bible for all people and has how he expects individual people to live. No matter where you're from.

  • casiepriest33

    Well that's where we differ. That's the beautiful thing about the Bible is open to interpretation and my interpretation is America is Babylon. Have a great day!

  • Angela

    Oh, now I see. You're one of those 'follow God when it's convenient' type of people. The Bible is not open to interpretation. God's word is very cut and dry and he tells us exactly how he wants us to live. But, I digress. You enjoy your day as well.

    I personally feel that everything is connected, especially when these things continue to happen. The world trade center was bombed way before 9/11 but it was a car bomb so it didn't do any damage fast forward to 9/11 and the World Trade Center was no more. You would think after that they would make it harder to come into the US, just based on past history, but all that happens is history repeating itself. Growing up in New York I never experienced racism, living in Connecticut now I have and I see it daily to the point that it sickens me once again history repeating itself although I felt Racism started forcefully rearing it's ugly head once we had a Biracial President. I voted for Obama his first term but by his second year in or less I just started to feel like all of these President's tell us what they want to hear. I feel that there is someone higher than the President that all President's answer to, because they promises before election are many the follow through is usually few. Obamacare does not help working individuals. When the Ebola came about I always wondered why they didn't contain it at the source, why they were letting people fly etc, then all of a sudden after so many people had died we heard of it no more as if it had never even happened. Why is that. Or how everyone who can't afford a cell phone can have a free phone to me that has a lot more to do with generosity and I just don't trust it. I noticed that there are some people on here that feel the same way. Agenda 21 really isn't a conspiracy theory, chips aren't a conspiracy theory and while they say it is for my safety as far as Identity theft I don't trust that either. It is all just another way to keep track of us. isp addresses, cell phones, social security numbers etc. Read Agenda 21 by Glen Beck and watch a Documentary called the Internets Own Boy, it's about a man that killed himself because FBI was after him. Sorry for the long post, it's just about something that gets under my skin. My family is not American but I still don't agree with letting people in the country if there is a repeated history of wrong doing. If someone from another country comes to America and gets arrested for selling drugs they can be deported back to their country but yet people who are murderers are given a chance to leave their country and come to our country and murder people here.....Priceless

  • yoyo the dog

    Every established country on the planet has had all you listed including the so called Israel. The bible can't solve 21st century problems ok so stop comparing that ancient book to today's problems. The bible can teach you how to drive a car, it can't teach you how to fly a plane, and it can't teach you how, to fix your internet connection. So why would it tell you how the world is going to end.
