NIKKI HALEY STILL PLAYING POLITICS …

This website has been all over the issue of refugee resettlements in South Carolina.  Back in April, we were the first website in the state to expose the shady backdoor taxpayer financing of these efforts – and since then we’ve worked tirelessly to expose the additional costs associated with our state accepting these refugees.

We oppose these resettlements vehemently … for reasons outlined here.

We also strongly support activists like Michelle Wiles who are working to put a stop to the program – and state lawmakers like Donna Hicks and Chris Corley who have been leading the opposition to the program in the S.C. General Assembly.

Unfortunately most of our state’s leaders – most notably S.C. governor Nikki Haley – have failed to do anything to stop these resettlements.  In fact Haley has been financially supporting them out of her scandal-scarred S.C. Department of Social Services (SCDSS) – even though she was specifically enjoined from doing so by budget writers in the S.C. General Assembly.

And even after the recent terrorist attacks in Paris – which included a refugee component – Haley has continued to try and dance her way around the issue.

Weeks ago, Haley made headlines when she belatedly wrote to U.S. secretary of state John Kerry to “request” that refugees from Syria not be included in any South Carolina resettlements.

Here’s what we had to say at the time …

Do Haley’s letters do the trick?  No … not even a little bit.

Aside from the passive nature of Haley’s communiques (i.e. “requesting” not “informing”), it’s not clear whether she has the authority to pick and choose which refugees South Carolina accepts once it has agreed to participate in the program.  Once states bind themselves to take refugees, they haven’t historically been permitted to change the terms of the arrangement.

Exactly.  So, imagine our (ahem) surprise to pick up a copy of The Greenville News this morning, in which a bold headline proclaims “Syrian Refugees Arrive in South Carolina, More Coming.”

Haley claims to have been surprised by the headline, too.

“The federal government did not communicate with Haley’s office that it was resettling the Syrians in South Carolina, according to the Governor’s Office,” reporter Tim Smith noted in the story.  “The governor learned of the resettlements through DSS and a resettlement agency.”

Really?  Last time we checked SCDSS was a cabinet agency (a disastrous one, but a cabinet agency nonetheless).  In other words, to inform SCDSS is to inform the governor.

Is Haley really playing the “I’m as shocked as you are” card?

At every step of this process Haley has worked affirmatively to facilitate these resettlements.  She actively argued for them prior to the Paris attacks, and since the Paris attacks she has stonewalled efforts to shut them down.

And at no point has she bothered to ask what sort of long-term obligations these resettlements impose on South Carolina taxpayers … or for that matter bothered to ask what role America’s ill-conceived (and costly) foreign interventionism played in creating the refugee crisis in the first place.

Seriously: If Christians in Syria are trying to escape religious persecution, wouldn’t it be a good idea to ask who is doing the persecution?

Oh … right.  We’re funding the persecutors.

This website is all for compassion.  And those who wish to come out of their own pockets to provide cradle-to-grave support for refugees ought to be allowed to do so.  But as we’ve noted repeatedly over the last few months, compassion cannot be compulsory.

Especially not in a state that’s already as dirt poor as South Carolina.

you oppose resettlement of refugees for the same reasons most ‘conservatives’ do – you are a bigot and a coward, spewing made-up post-hoc rationalizations about ‘limited government’ and “oh my god! taxpayers are buying lunch for hungry children!”

Not much Haley can do with a lawless.radical Islamist loving pResident seeking to destroy our communities:

Gov. Kasich on Monday said he is against admitting more Syrian refugees to the United States. Immigration experts said, however, that under the Refugee Act of 1980, governors cannot legally block refugees from settling in their communities.

“The governor doesn’t believe the U.S. should accept additional Syrian refugees because security and safety issues cannot be adequately addressed,” Kasich spokesman Jim Lynch said in an email. “The governor is writing to the President to ask him to stop, and to ask him to stop resettling them in Ohio. We are also looking at what additional steps Ohio can take to stop resettlement of these refugees.”

Haley should just set up roadblocks at all the road entries to SC and turn away anyone with brown skin because that is the only way she can stop it.

Once a refugee has been given status they are legally allowed to go where ever they want like anyone else with a visa.

Big Church is profiting on more than that. They will be the first to cry about Muslims after the money is in their pocket. Google illegal immigrant children, government contracts to churches or something similar. If you want religious beliefs, have at it, but organized religion is no different from any other shady special interest groups.

“compassion cannot be compulsory.”

But your total acquiescence is mandatory.

This operation was set up and carried out in such a way as to never expose the planning and the completion.

Again, “they’re here,” brought in by a “phantom operation” that no one will admit to.
Now, the general public will be considered a group of “social and religious bigots” for voicing their displeasure. We are getting screwed by many levels of the government, and they didn’t even kiss us.

This is not about compassion or even whether or not we should take them, this is about the government undertaking this whole operation in a less than ethical fashion. They then gin up the narrative that any criticism of that into a “hate and bigotry” narrative that you are buying into.

Reply
Mary December 17, 2015 at 12:51 pm

If you want this discussion to be about government ethics, that’s fine. A nice safe topic. That has nothing to do with what I am discussing. I am discussing Christian obligations.

As for my buying into a narrative that criticism of this effort is hate and bigotry. You are wrong? I realize there are many reasons people want to turn these people away. Some do hate. Some are bigots. Some are greedy and worry about the money. But these are the vast minority. Most people are caring people who are just afraid. Frightened that by helping these people they will place themselves at risk.

I simply think Christians should fight these fears. We should rejoice that Christ has chosen us to spread his light further into the world by helping those in need. We should rejoice that Christ has afforded us another opportunity and the ability to help the helpless in his name. After all we as wealthy Americans turn that opportunity down all the time.

OS-Q December 17, 2015 at 5:15 pm

According to Christ himself no one goes to heaven “except through me” so most Syrians are damned, so why don’t you save their souls instead of just filling their bellies?

Because Christians are too terrified to preach to them and those willing to convert are terrified. Apostasy is often followed by shunning and even murder. Christians among the boat people coming across the Mediterranean have been thrown overboard just for their faith. Many of these third worlders will track down family members and kill them for “dishonoring” the family.

Modern Christianity seems to be more interested in redistributing wealth (while taking a cut for itself) than saving souls, which is why I want no part in this slothful hypocrisy.

erneba December 17, 2015 at 11:11 am

You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.

If you show these people all the hate, anger and rejection I see here, you will confirm all they have been told about America and Christians by those who hate us. If you are a Christian, I tell you, you need only follow the directions of Christ to know what your obligation to these people is. Rejoice in the opportunity to fulfill it.

“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
If you are not a Christian at least show some compassion. Surely you are not devoid of that.

Evil needs no excuse. Christ does not promise you safety in this world. He does not promise a Christian life will be without risk. He does not promise that your efforts to show Christian love will not be met with rejection. After all look at him. He showed love for all and malice toward none, but he was arrested, beaten, tortured and killed.

What he asks of those who follow him to shun fear and hate: to show his love in spite of the risk, as did Christ and his Apostles. There is no place for hate in Christ. Did he not suffer and die for you? Did he not suffer and die to offer all these people a chance at salvation? What do you think he would have you do?

Reply
James December 17, 2015 at 11:30 am

I don’t think He suffered and died so that we could pluck people up from a third world, plop them down in a first world setting far from their homeland, families, religion and customs.

There are a hundred ways to be compassionate about this and the way we have chose to do it is about the last one.

blueyescrying December 17, 2015 at 11:49 am

So by your logic, excuse me, by the logic of the “Word of God” which was written by man, if we are nice and they are evil it doesn’t matter, but if we aren’t nice we will turn them evil. Darned if we do, darned if we don’t I guess. And to answer your question, no I do not believe a man died on a cross for me to find my way to God. Nor do I worship or believe a book written by man that has been interpreted over many languages and changed to fit the current times of each generation. But here I will give you a Bible verse, since you are a believer, that tells you why you shouldn’t welcome believers of a different faith with open arms:
2 John 1:7-11

For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward. Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.

Mary December 17, 2015 at 12:10 pm

You are not a Christian. So why are we discussing Christian texts. As a non-Christian you are free to act as you please, to fear and hate whom you please. I accept that and think no less of you. If you were starving I would help you as well despite the fact you are not a Christian and despite the fact you would not do the same for me.
I would point out that you are the very type of person the scripture you quote is warning Christians to stay away from.. A non-believer teaching religion.

blueyescrying December 17, 2015 at 1:33 pm

Au contraire, I am not trying to teach religion. I’m merely pointing out a passage from your man written book that you cling to so dearly. You would only feed me because your holy book tells you to do so, however where you are wrong is that I would feed you because I would see no one go hungry. I don’t need a book or a prophet to tell me that. What I would not do is let you in my home or have you around my children. A supreme being has given me the knowledge to know how to show compassion but not be foolish at the same time. BTW, I’m fine with Christians staying away from me, as well as muslims, I don’t tend to trust either cult.

Mary December 17, 2015 at 2:39 pm

You do not understand Christianity at all. We do not do good works to be saved, we do works because we are saved and we love the world. We rejoice tn the opportunity to show charity. If you feel you cannot trust Christians, then shame on the Christians you have encountered. I agree, there are many alleged Christians that should leave you with that impression.

As for I would see no one go hungry, I think like many Christians that is not really true. We all do what we can, but Americans could do more. It is estimated 10 million children die from malnutrition each year. It is estimated a person of modest means could easily afford to prevent 10 children from dying each year. Most of us will have enough on our Christmas Table to feed several children for a month. Most of us will give gifts to people who have never known need. So to say we would see no one go hungry is simply not true. We should say we don’t like seeing hungry people.

Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing…

but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)”

Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly.”

Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.”

He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.”

The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said.

He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”

It is good and right to help those of other nations with “the crumbs that fall from their master’s table”. But that is all. To do more is to deprive our posterity, which Jesus himself said is not right.

Even our constitution makes it clear:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to OURSELVES AND OUR POSTERITY, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Fits makes the argument that the government should pay for this resettlement because it was partly responsible for causing them to become refugees in the first place. Since, he had no objection to charities paying for it, and his only objection is public exspense, that one issue resolved should clearaway any objection he should have.

These charities, the large ones anyway, are heavily subsidized by the federal government. Resettlement is a huge financial business and there is nothing new about this.

SC is being pawned by the do-gooders that are paid handsomely for their troubles.

Please do not use my name, unless it is really your name. I assume this is Big T or one his reiterations.

Why can’t they pay for it like most people do? Pay their taxes.

Public Education is a handout to all children. The immigrants will have jobs and pay taxes.

State sovereignty is clearly dead. Don’t feed your children’s food to the dogs. Someone needs to post the address where they are resettling these invaders, and who is keeping the rent check.

It’s a good thing that every child in South Carolina is getting a world class education, every adult has a good job, and every senior has enough money for healthcare. Otherwise this would be seen as prioritizing the well being of foreigners over the well being of South Carolinians which is essentially treasonous.

That’s right—Will Folks thinks you’re slow as he is and don’t know Hicks ripped down patriots’ flag WITHOUT your vote

And after Will has lambasted Chris Corley for standing up for patriots’ heritage now Will tells us…uh…no Chris is NOT a goat

Because Chris—who is far smarter and grateful that Will OR Hicks—has said…NO gihadists to be federally rammed into SC

But Will can’t have it both ways on voters getting to VOTE just because the subject is one on which Will happens to agree

Which is precisely why he can’t deny…flag-rippers like Joe Wilson—Will—Hicks and her fellow ingrates will NOT get a pass

Because patriots’ flag will STILL fly while the best politicians money can buy will see that Tea Train hand ALL of them their… !!!

Governor Haley didn’t know the federal Government was going to fund the refugees no oneder so many children died in DSS care the Governor doesn’t know what her own cabinet agencies are doing.I can’t believe she didn’t know refugees were being housed.I cant believe we would house refugees when we have people in the state still homeless from the flood.We must remember it only took 3 refugees to kill over a hundred people in Paris .
