And A New Beginning

(sound ON full screen)
The title of the Scottish tune translates to "times gone by" and
is about remembering friends from the past and not
letting them be forgotten.
Despite its strong association with New Year's Eve,
"Auld Lang Syne," written by Robert Burns in the 1700s,
was never intended to be a holiday song.

Afghan official: Taliban
overrun district in Helmand
The head of Helmand's
provincial council, Muhammad Kareem Atal, said that 28 members of the Afghan
security forces — usually a reference to army and police who also fight on the
front lines across the country — were killed fighting on Sunday. Another 15
were critically wounded, he said.
"Around 65 percent of Helmand
is now under Taliban control,"
Atal said. "In every district either we are stepping back or we are
handing territory over to Taliban
Atal said more than 2,000
members of the security forces had been killed fighting in Helmand
It seems like yesterday that US VP Joe Biden
told us that the Taliban is Not Our Enemy and the
White House validated his ticket.

Obama, Biden and Hillary are telling the world that all is good
and “we are now in a good place”
relative to the war that has been declared upon us by the Radical Muslim
that: “seven-in-10 Americans believe the
country is headed in the wrong direction — the highest percentage here
since Aug. 2014”
Sleep tight – Obama
is in charge of your security and things will be much better as soon as he
confiscates your guns and stops global temperature changes.
Obama and his minions are
scoffing at the “trivial” immigration concerns being expressed by some following
the Paris and San Bernardino Radical Muslim Terrorist attacks.
He’s scoffing because his
Democrat Congressmen friends are calling for an additional 100,000 Syrian refugees to be
brought into the US,
not the paltry 10,000 now being debated.
He knows that since 2012 he has brought into the US 100,000 Syrian refugees without public awareness of this significant influx of people from a very high risk ISIS source environment.
He also knows that there are
thousands of foreigners with revoked Visas in the US and our government doesn’t know
where they are! Many of these Visas have
been revoked for national security concerns.
What could possibly go wrong
with these pictures?
Not to worry about all this –
our real threat is from climate change.
Real science: The climate is changing – the climate has
always been changing!
As lawmakers clash over refugees, Syrian immigration
quietly tops 100,000 since 2012
Some 102,313 Syrians were granted admission to the U.S. as legal permanent residents or through programs including work, study and tourist visas from 2012 through August of this year, a period which roughly coincides with the devastating civil war that still engulfs the Middle Eastern country. Experts say any fears that terrorists might infiltrate the proposed wave of refugees from United Nations-run camps should be dwarfed by the potential danger already here.-
to take additional 100,000 Syrian refugees
Two top Democrats have
called for the U.S. to
accept 100,000 additional Syrian refugees next year, or 10 times the number President
Obama proposed this week, saying America should “do our part.”
Reps. John Conyers Jr. and
Zoe Lofgren, who are the two top House Democrats on the committee dealing with
immigration, also said the U.S. should take a total of 200,000 refugees, or
nearly three times the number accepted in 2014.
Feds can't say whereabouts of those whose visas were
revoked over terror threat
The Obama administration
cannot be sure of the whereabouts of thousands of foreigners in the U.S. who had
their visas revoked over terror concerns and other reasons, a State Department
official acknowledged Thursday.
The admission, made at a
House oversight hearing examining immigrant vetting in the wake of major terror
attacks, drew a sharp rebuke from the committee chairman.
“You don’t have a clue do
you?” Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told Michele Thoren Bond, assistant
secretary for the Bureau of Consular Affairs.
Bond initially said the U.S. has revoked
more than 122,000 visas since 2001, including 9,500 because of the threat of
But Chaffetz quickly pried
at that stat, pressing the witness about the present location of those
"I don't know,"
The startling admission came
as members of the committee pressed administration officials on what safeguards
are in place to reduce the risk from would-be extremists.
