Credible Fear.

Tom's Journal.

HAPPY NEW YEAR !!   We can only hope and pray that it may be happy,  but I, personally want to start off on the right foot and think positively!  I do listen intently to my readers, friends, and wife, and ask them for 'constructive criticizm' -- and then try to act on it, if it has merit.   And  I  thank all of you good people for helping me in the past, also giving me suggestions on what to post -- many times taking YOUR advice-- even giving the credit to YOU !   People like Grace, and Suni, etc., have contributed special news articles and things of interest to my humble blog several times.  THANK YOU !!

I try to make my blog interesting, but the Truth of the Bible trumps everything else in my book.   I am sorry if I have repeated myself too much, but the teaching of what is most IMPORTANT, Salvation of human souls, and praise to the Lord of all things,  Jehovah God, through His Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior,  has got to be my primary mission statement, dear ones.    Hey!  This is the only 'show in town' and according to the apostle Paul.....  "But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.  Yea, doubtless, and I cou8nt all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord:  for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ."   ~ Philippians 3: 7-8.   And friends, let's not be squeamish about the original, true words and terms of the KING JAMES BIBLE, PLEASE ! ! !  If the 66 books of the Bible use such terms in their proper setting, whom of us has the authority to say that they are improper or dirty ??   I am sorry if I have offended anyone who reads my humble Blog:  TOM'S JOURNAL, but I seek to be accurate, and also get my point across.   I have noticed that some folks are almost hypocritical, and overly sensitive about some of my language, knit-picking, and being hyper-critical ---  but not seeing the original content and ideas that I try hard to impart/ paint/ illustrate.   To those simple folks, I say, move on, to Alice in Wonderland, or some goofy, meaningless trash.  My blog posts are aimed at a particular group of mature people, who are mostly on the same level as I am..... LOVERS OF THE TRUTH, even if it appears unvarnished and raw, sometimes.  I am far from perfect -- a sinner, deserving of death and hell.  I glorify my God, Almighty in heaven for giving me a 'way out' -- in Salvation through the blood of Jesus on the cross, and I am SAVED !   YOU can be too, as many of my Readers are!   You all must know my address by now:  

  Sorry to dampen your parade today, but Phyllis Schafly, is an all time favorite of mine, and can be heard on that great Christian radio channel/ wave length:  WVCY- Milwaukee....  I think:  107.5 FM.   --By InterNet too !  Good stuff, and very encouraging!

One more thing, please,  I do believe that WE WILL experience some freaky, super cold weather, and other new disasters in the very near future,  because of America's sour dealings with the State of Israel.   Even as the Sec. of State, John Kerry, might be there right now, pushing Israel to give up more land, or lowering her guard, when her hostile neighbors are still sending rockets and mortars her way !!   I read the book, 'As America has done to Israel,'  [sorry, that I could have the title wrong, sorry...], and by now ALL OF YOU have the Genesis 12:3 scripture memorized.   The minds of the heathen [and that includes the WH, Congress, Gov't, etc.], the UN-believers, the wicked, god-haters, will get all of us in deep trouble, friends.   I have told you all 'why' many times.   We, collectively, generally speaking, have put obama and the greedy Congress in power, and now WE reap the whirl wind.    Period.  Amen.

So,  while whole countries will not be saved, preserved, safe.....   INDIVIDUALS  may still be Saved !

Warm Regards,
Tommy Schuckman

Pretty Terri is way UP near Marquette, MI., to help out, with her pretty, well mannered daughter, Janna, who just gave birth to her FIRST child, 2 days ago!  Woo Woo!  Mother and daughter  [child]  are just fine, and healthy.  Praise be to God!  I believe the new born baby was large, like:  almost 8 pounds.   I am happy that everything went well.   I am just getting to know Janna, and she has always been nice, kind, respectful to me.   I don't want to get the baby's name wrong, so I will wait until Terri gets back home with all the particulars.

"For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain."   ~ Philippians 1: 21.

----->>>   My two beautiful daughters, Sarah, and Barbara.   I love both of them, of course.   And I sorely MISS MY DEAR SON,  ANDY, WHO WAS TAKEN AWAY from me three years ago.   I pray that he is in heaven now -- no more pain, no more sorrow.

---And sweet Terri M. Schuckman, in the kitchen,   my lawfully, wedded wife, and soul mate.   I love you, dear Terri !

The Magic Words: Credible Fear

by Phyllis Schlafly
January 1, 2014
Those who seek to enter the United States illegally are resourceful in selecting their route. They climb over fences, scramble through underground tunnels, swim through waterways, and claw their way through the heat of the Arizona desert.
Now, some illegals have learned two magic words that let them in legally. They can walk up to a border agent and say: “credible fear.”
These may be the only words they can speak in English, but they are sufficient to unlock the gates of our borders. Credible fear applications have increased from 5,000 to more than 36,000, with the biggest numbers coming from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.
If a credible fear application passes an initial screening interview, the applicant is allowed to live and work in the U.S. until his case is resolved. That might take years.
The House Judiciary Committee recently held a hearing to examine reports that the asylum system is being exploited by drug traffickers. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) accused some asylum seekers of “gaming the system”; they “get free education, free healthcare.”
Such a loose system invites fraud. Last year in New York, 26 people including six attorneys were indicted on charges that they manufactured asylum claims and coached Chinese clients on how to lie to immigration officials. In 2012, more than 10,000 people from China were granted asylum.
The House Judiciary Committee discovered a woman in the U.S. on an asylum claim who three months later was caught at a Border Patrol checkpoint with more than $1 million worth of cocaine. According to Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), “dangerous criminals are gaming the system by claiming they have a ‘credible fear’ of persecution when often they’ve been the perpetrators of violence themselves.”
According to Rep. Goodlatte, the law requires most people claiming “credible fear” to be put in mandatory detention until their case is resolved. But, surprise, surprise, the Obama Administration argues that they should be released rather than detained unless there is a demonstrable danger to the community.
Among the 70,000 Iraqis admitted to the U.S. as war refugees were several dozen suspected terrorist bomb-makers, including some believed to have targeted U.S. troops, according to the FBI agents investigating the roadside bombs recovered from Iraq and Afghanistan. An Iraqi named Waad Ramadan Alwan, who claimed to be a refugee, was allowed to settle in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where he moved into public housing and collected public assistance handouts.
The FBI secretly taped Alwan, which recorded him bragging that he had built a dozen bombs in Iraq and used sniper rifles to target American soldiers near Baghdad. Bowling Green residents are asking why this criminal was allowed to move to their town.
The FBI now admits that dozens of terrorist bomb-makers were allowed to move to the U.S. as war refugees. Don’t forget the Boston Marathon Bombers who were admitted to the U.S. using the asylum racket and then received welfare handouts.
Asylum requests from Mexico soared to 36,000 in fiscal 2013, and 2,000 recent applicants carried a bleeding-heart letter describing their alleged need for asylum. A local official named C. Ramon Contreras Orozco has been busy providing these letters, which have been copied, resold or forged for a going rate of $75 each.
The U.S. Border Patrol reported a “surge of unaccompanied minors coming across our border,” some used by drug smugglers. Border statistics released this December show that 24,668 “unaccompanied alien children” were housed in federally funded U.S. care centers last year, double the 2012 number, and quadruple the number in previous years.
Our Border Patrol arrested a 12-year-old boy illegally smuggling 80 pounds of marijuana on his back from Mexico into Texas. Rep. Steve King (R-IA) commented that some of the so-called Dreamers, portrayed as having been innocently brought into the U.S. as children by their parents, actually were “hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.”
Federal Judge Andrew S. Hanen of Texas accused the Department of Homeland Security of hand-delivering children smuggled into the U.S. to their illegal alien parents. The judge said that Customs and Border Protection agents helped to locate and deliver the kids to their parents, and U.S. taxpayers paid the bill for flights to multiple locations to find the parents.
One of those children was delivered to the person who paid the smuggler. The judge accused the government of “completing the criminal mission” of human traffickers “who are violating the border security of the United States” and assisting a “criminal conspiracy in achieving its illegal goals.”
Judge Hanen called the Administration’s behavior “dangerous and unconscionable” and said that “DHS should cease telling the citizens of the United States that it is enforcing our border security laws because it is clearly not. Even worse, it is helping those who violate these laws.”
