(Just in case anyone is concerned about what side US president Barack Obama is on, this should calm any fears. For some)
President Barack Obama is vowing to veto a bill from House Republicans that would increase screening for Syrian and Iraqi refugees before they enter the United States.
The White House says the legislation would introduce “unnecessary and impractical requirements” that would harm efforts to assist some of the world’s most vulnerable people.
The bill would add a new requirement for FBI background checks. It does not call for ending the refugee program or require religious screenings, as some Republicans have demanded.

In case anyone doesn’t believe there is a war on reason in order to pimp the narrative of cultural Marxism at all costs, check out the version of that video that CBSN actually aired. See if you can tell which bits are edited out of the actual interview.

Israel described on Monday as “appallingly impudent” comments by Sweden’s foreign minister that it interpreted as an attempt to link the Islamic State attacks in Paris to the plight of Palestinians under Israeli occupation.
Sweden’s ambassador to Israel was summoned to the Israeli Foreign Ministry to explain the remarks Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom made on Saturday to Swedish state broadcaster SVT.
Two federal agents operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are claiming that eight Syrian illegal aliens attempted to enter Texas from Mexico in the Laredo Sector. The federal agents spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity, however, a local president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) confirmed that Laredo Border Patrol agents have been officially contacting the organization with concerns over reports from other federal agents about Syrians illegally entering the country in the Laredo Sector. The reports have caused a stir among the sector’s Border Patrol agents.
The sources claimed that eight Syrians were apprehended on Monday, November 16, 2015. According to the sources, the Syrians were in two separate “family units” and were apprehended at the Juarez Lincoln Bridge in Laredo, Texas, also known officially as Port of Entry 1.
7. Video shows terrorists shooting up a Paris Restaurant.
Terrifying video footage of a sustained attack on a restaurant during the Paris Massacre can be revealed by the Daily Mail today.
The exclusive images show the merciless savagery of an Islamic State assassin and the extraordinary bravery and survival instincts of his intended victims.
They also show the incredible luck of a young woman who would have died had the terrorist’s assault rifle not misfired as he held the weapon over her head, giving her a chance to run away.
Police believe her to be the luckiest person to escape with their life during Friday’s psychopathic rampage which left 129 people dead and 99 critically injured.
There is also remarkable footage of a 20 year old waitress who ducked under the bar and wrapped her arms around an older, injured woman as the Islamic State gunman who sprayed the restaurant and its outdoor dining area with bullets.
It is the first time any film has been seen of the mayhem caused inside a property targeted by Islamic State six days ago.

10. Muslim apostate asks the head of Facebook if they are Charlie or Sharia, as they cut his FB acct off after the Paris attacks as he was suddenly much more popular in his writings against Islam.
Britain has come under sustained cyber-attack as Islamist hackers launch revenge attacks against Anonymous, the shadowy group which has vowed to wipe “ISIS off the internet”.
Unknown assailants launched their assault late last night and continued throughout the day.
Using a Twitter account set up to publicise its anti-ISIS operation, Anonymous said Britain had been “lit up” by the digital blitzkreig.
Although it is often impossible to tell who is behind serious cyber-attacks, it is likely that ISIS supporters have targeted Britain in revenge for an Anonymous campaign called OpParis.
This has seen an estimated 5,000 ISIS propaganda accounts shut down on Twitter and the publication of the names and addresses of a number of alleged extremist “recruiters”.
