Christie swings back at Obama over women refugees comment
Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 6, 2015
I’m glad someone is pointing this out in a big way—women can be Islamic terrorists too!
My only problem with Christie’s comment is that we (they! not me) are stuck on Syria! While Syrian numbers are still small, every month, we have thousands of refugees, women among them, entering the US from Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia and even Burma that could just as well be devout Muslims we can’t trust.
From The Hill:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is pointing to this week’s shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., as evidence that female refugees from Syria should not be allowed in the country.
“We now know from San Bernardino, just a couple of days ago, that women are very capable of being involved in terrorist activity,” the GOP presidential candidate said at a forum in Fort Dodge, Iowa, on Friday, according to ABC News.
One of the alleged assailants in the attack that left 14 dead and 21 injured Wednesday is Tashfeen Malik, 27, a Pakistani woman who immigrated to the U.S. in 2013 on a K-1 fiancée visa.
Authorities said Malik pledged her support to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as the attack was happening.
“The widow who comes over here from Syria, if aligned with ISIS or another organization, could create just as much death as any man given the weapons that are available now,” Christie said.
President Obama previously mocked Christie’s blanket opposition to allowing Syrian refugees into the country, asking Republican presidential candidates whether they were “scared of widows and orphans.”
The New Jersey governor slammed the president’s criticism in light of the San Bernardino attack.
“I wonder if the president is going to stand up and call me a tough guy today and insult me again,” Christie told radio show host Hugh Hewitt on Friday. “You know, the fact is I know a little bit about this stuff, and the president should open his ears more and open his mouth less.”

Remember readers that even if they don’t have terror inclinations, women and children are very expensive refugees because you will be educating the kids and paying for all of their welfare including healthcare!
Action Alert: Call your members of the House and Senate at 202-224-3121 and ask them to vigorously oppose the Refugee Resettlement funding contained in the Omnibus Spending Bill that will be voted on by 12-11-15! Don’t stop calling (we will keep you posted as we learn more about when the vote might occur).
