Trikki Nikki is Shocked that Syrians are Arriving in South Carolina

One of Trikki Nikki's Many Faces
According to yesterday's The State newspaper, Syrian refugees have begun arriving in South Carolina.  And Governor Nikki Haley is just shocked!  Shocked!  In response to statewide opposition and public pressure, hadn't she publicly "requested" that Syrian refugees not be settled here? 

Her office claims to have been completely blindsided by the collaboration of her Department of Social Services and Lutheran Services Carolinas on the first Syrian placements in South Carolina's Midlands.

Sadly, this is only the latest example of what a lying, duplicitous Governor we have and why she has so richly earned the appellation of Trikki Nikki.

She knew very well when she signed an agreement on August 7th that Syrian refugees would be coming to South Carolina.  Your safety and well-being be damned.  It means federal dollars for her friends and all subsequent "requests" were merely for show.  Federal shackles follow federal shekels, as Trikki well knows.

So, arm yourselves, South Carolinians; Trikki and the feds are not going to protect you.  And be forewarned America, our very corrupt Governor is concerned only about her own selfish advancement.

A Soldier's Story



By Christopher Allard in a Facebook post dated November 16, 2015

I don’t typically go on rants or express my political beliefs here (Facebook), but I just have to get this off my mind.
 
As some of you know, I’m active duty Army. Aside from that, I am a medic. I’ve spent 3 years of my life overseas in both Afghanistan and Iraq. I’ve seen some pretty atrocious sites caused by war, from both sides. I’ve picked up blown up body parts of friends and I’ve saved the lives of guys who were trying to kill me and my guys right before I was keeping them from their 72 virgins or whatever they believe awaits them on the other side.
 
Here is an unbiased truthful view to the Syrian refugee situation.
 
My first deployment to Iraq, in 2006, my unit voluntarily ran a childrens burn clinic outside of the FOB. It was a constant target for attacks. You would think that people wouldn’t shoot mortars or rockets at their own children, but you would be wrong. We saw hundreds of children, from infants to 18 year olds. The overwhelming majority of the kids we saw (90% or better) were clear cases of abuse. These parents were literally dunking their kids in boiling water, or throwing hot chai at their kids faces… Yes, we’re talking about babies, toddlers, kids not even old enough to understand why their parents would do these things to them. HUNDREDS of kids… We saw quite a few of these kids that were sexually abused, both girls and boys. Their parents acted if nothing was wrong with this, even when confronted by our doctors.
 
This is the mentality of their society, not the viewpoint of a few individuals… these beliefs have been accepted to the vast majority of these people. Many were educated, well dressed, well spoken men, but yet, they still raped their own children, and kept chai boys (if you don’t know what that means, google it.)
 
During that deployment, we also captured the 3rd largest EFP cache that had ever been captured. There were hundreds of copper plates, homemade explosives, fake curbs to house the EFP’s, hundreds of mortars and rockets and howitzer rounds, even an anti-aircraft gun. All of these things came from one place, Syria. Almost every single IED or EFP we found or hit could be traced back to Syria… A lot of the terrorists we captured were from SYRIA… Imagine that.
 
Fast forward a couple years, and I find myself in Helmand Province, in Afghanistan… We had a group of Afghani’s that were paid to help guard our little mud hut in the middle of an Afghan village (I wasn’t on a fob) These guys also kept a “chai boy” A boy, about 11 years old, who was there to serve these guys sexually. We heard him being sexually assaulted many times, but there was nothing we could do about it. We asked the police, the Afghan Army, and we were told the same thing every time…. it’s their culture, and accepted as the norm….
 
Once again, we captured Syrian made explosives, weapons, and other items… We found Syrian passports during raids… And people out there want us to let these people into the US, with our kids, and near our wives. Near our schools, near our churches, synogogues, malls. Places where we should never have to fear being blown up, shot, kidnapped and tortured…
 
Don’t forget what they did to the Egyptian Coptic Christians, or the Jordanian pilot… Don’t forget about what they do to rape victims! They stone these women to death for being raped! They behead their own people. Do you think they will show mercy to you?
 
Look at the rape statistics in Denmark, Sweden, Belgium. Facts don’t lie… 97% of rapes committed in Sweden were committed by Muslim immigrants… And you want 10,000 of these people here? Even if just 1% of these so called “refugees” were ISIS supporters or active ISIS terrorists, would that be acceptable to you?
 
Chew on it… think about it. Take a good look at your kids or your wife and decide if the risk is worth taking. Feel free to share this if you want.

Governor Haley, It Is Time to Reverse Your Plan to Settle Syrian "Refugees" In South Carolina

Governor Haley, we call on you to follow the lead of  the Governors of Michigan and Alabama and reverse your plans to settle Syrian "refugees" in South Carolina.

Michigan's Governor Rick Snyder has recently reversed his plans to accept Syrian refugees, saying his "first priority is protecting the safety of our residents."  Alabama's Governor Robert Bentley said he reached his decision "after full consideration of this weekend's attacks of terror on innocent citizens in Paris ... I will not stand complicit to a policy that places the citizens of Alabama in harm's way."

Accordingly, we respectfully urge you to heed the opposition expressed throughout South Carolina to your plans and to fulfill your most fundamental responsibility to protect the public safety of our South Carolina families and communities.

In reflecting on the murderous horror that has recently occurred in Paris, Congressman Peter King, R-N.Y., chairman of the U.S. House Counter-Terrorism and Intelligence Subcommittee of the House Homeland Security Committee, has said the U.S. has no databases, no government records, and no employment records against which to vet Syrian refugees. "We don't know who these people are," King told Megyn Kelly of Fox News.



South Carolina has many unmet needs without rushing to open the door to a community of high-risk individuals who will add new burdens to our communities, schools, medical facilities, law enforcement, social services, welfare and public benefit programs.

Experience has shown throughout Europe and the United States that in addition to radical Islamists who are thought to be embedded among the refugees, second and third generation Muslims are highly prone to be radicalized and to be the cause of many acts of terrorism.

There is no compelling reason to open our state to individuals from a known hotbed of Islamic extremism who security officials say cannot be safely screened and who would love to bring suicide vests and grenades to the streets of Charleston, Greenville or our State House.

Your first obligation is to the people of South Carolina, Governor Haley, and any initiative to impose enormous new burdens and dangers on the people of this state should only be done after consultation with the public, community leaders and with the approval of our elected state representatives.
