Under two terms of a President Hillary Clinton, the U.S. Muslim population would exceed Germany’s current Muslim population, according to data from Pew Research Center and the Department of Homeland Security.
According to a Pew report published earlier this week, “as of 2010, there were 4.8 million Muslims in Germany.”
A Pew report from January of this year estimated that there are roughly 3.3 million Muslims living in the United States. This means that today the U.S. already has a larger Muslim population than does Kuwait, or Brunei, or Bahrain, or Djibouti, or Qatar. Under current policy, Pew projects the number of Muslims in America will outnumber Jews by 2040. However, under a President Hillary Clinton it’s possible that date could come much sooner.
Under two terms of a Hillary Clinton presidency, the U.S. would have a Muslim population that is larger than Germany’s Muslim population of 4.8 million.
Based on the most recent DHS data available, the U.S. permanently resettled roughly 149,000 migrants from predominantly Muslim countries on green cards in 2014.
Yet, as Donald Trump explained during Thursday night acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention, Clinton “has called for a radical 550% increase in Syrian refugees on top of existing massive refugee flows coming into our country under President Obama.”
Specifically, Clinton had said that, as president, she would expand Muslim migration by importing an additional 65,000 Syrian refugees into the United States during the course of a single fiscal year. Clinton has made no indication that she would limit her proposed Syrian refugee program to one year.
As Trump explained, Clinton’s Syrian refugees would come on top of the tens of thousands of refugees the U.S. already admits from Muslim countries.
Adding Clinton’s 65,000 Syrian refugees to the approximately 149,000 Muslim migrants the U.S. resettled on green cards in the course of one year, means that Clinton could permanently resettle roughly 214,000 Muslim migrants in her first year as President. If Clinton were to continue her Syrian refugee program throughout her Presidency, she could potentially resettle roughly 1.5 million Muslim migrants during her first two terms.
These projections are rough estimates, and the population size could be impacted by additional various factors— including births, deaths, and conversions.
Many have warned if the U.S. continues at its current record pace of Muslim migration—or if pro-Islamic migration politicians, such as Paul Ryan and Hillary Clinton, further increase Muslim migration—the U.S. risks following in Europe’s footsteps.
As Sen. Jeff Sessions has previously explained, “it’s an unpleasant, but unavoidable fact that bringing in large unassimilated flows of migrants from the Muslim world creates the conditions possible for radicalisation and extremism to take hold, just like they’re seeing in Europe.”
Andrew McCarthy has similarly argued that the large-scale importation of “assimilation-resistant Muslim migrants” enables the development of pockets of Sharia-sympathetic communities that can serve as breeding grounds for radicalization—as they have in Europe.
McCarthy has explained that, as we are seeing “in Europe and the Middle East, jihadism thrives when it has a support system of sharia-adherent Muslims. In Europe this means – as it would mean here – enclaves of assimilation-resistant Muslims… It is patently obvious that our security challenge is not just jihadists; it is the combination of jihadists and their support network of assimilation-resistant Muslims. Indeed, even if we could vet for all the currently active jihadists, it is from the assimilation-resistance Islamic communities that future “homegrown” jihadists will emerge – and that is apart from the material and moral support jihadists get from like-minded Islamists in these communities.”
Sessions has aruged that vetting migrants means not simply keeping out people who currently have terror aspirations and already have ties to terror groups, but also keeping out those who—based on their support for Islamist ideology— could be candidates for terror, or whose children could become candidates for terror, or who hold values that are hostile to American values.
Yet politicians in both parties, who have voted to expand Muslim migration into the U.S., have ruled out vetting measures that could take these factors into account. Both Hillary Clinton and Paul Ryan have argued it’s inappropriate to examine the religious views of an applicant– in essence, this suggests that the U.S. can’t screen out migrants based on their potential support for ideologies that may be anti-gay, anti-women, anti-America or anti-religious freedom.
Yet neither Clinton nor Ryan have explained why importing hundreds of thousands of migrants from nations that may hold sentiments that are anti-women, anti-gay, anti-religious tolerance, and anti-America benefits the United States or helps to protect American values.
The Washington Examiner reported that Kerry was in Vienna to amend the 1987 Montreal Protocol that would phase out hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, from basic household and commercial appliances like air conditioners, refrigerators, and inhalers.
“As we were working together on the challenge of [ISIS] and terrorism,” Kerry said. “It’s hard for some people to grasp it, but what we–you–are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself.”
Kerry said that most of the substances banned in the Montreal Protocol have increased the use of HFCs and claimed that the coolant was thousands of times more potent than CO2. He added that the increase of HFCs has lead to the trend of global climate change.
“The use of hydrofluorocarbons is unfortunately growing,” Kerry said. “Already, the HFCs use in refrigerators, air conditioners, and other items are emitting an entire gigaton of carbon dioxide-equivalent pollution into the atmosphere annually. Now, if that sounds like a lot, my friends, it’s because it is. It’s the equivalent to emissions from nearly 300 coal-fired power plants every single year.”
Members of the Montreal Protocol have met their obligations and have aided in the shrinking of the hole in the ozone, as well as created jobs and improved the quality of life, Kerry said.
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy was also present at the negotiations and is serving as the lead negotiator for the United States. McCarthy has said that her goal is to enact the HFC agreement by the end of the year.
New EPA rules along with the global deal would band HFCs in the United States and push for alternative chemicals for use in appliances. The negotiations are part of President Obama’s climate agenda to combat global climate change.

Good for him!! Show those bastards that we aren’t afraid of them.
The probe was launched after the unnamed woman claimed that the teens were taunting and molesting her when her boyfriend, Christopher Vallaro, ran to her rescue.
But investigators with the DA’s office have scheduled a meeting with Vallaro and his girlfriend to look into the accusations that the teens reached through the car window and groped her breasts and body, sources said. Vallaro came to her rescue when he heard her screaming for help from floors above in his apartment, which is located adjacent to the Sunset Park mosque.
The July 2 beating was originally investigated as a hate-crime, but police later concluded the teens’ Muslim faith was not a motivating factor. (Yes it is.)

During a brief Wednesday appearance, defense attorney Sal Strazzullo submitted 20 letters from his client’s neighbors, mostly Muslim-Americans, in Vallaro’s defense.
“I’m glad that the District Attorney’s office is taking a look at the entirely of the situation, and not just what the alleged victims said happened,” Strazzullo said.
Vallaro declined comment as he left court.
And now its happening in South America. Muslim savagery is all over the world, and its going to get worse.
Brazilian police arrested 10 people who allegedly pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group on social media and discussed possible attacks during the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, officials said Thursday.
Justice Minister Alexandre de Moraes said in the capital, Brasilia, that 10 suspects had been detained and two more were being sought. All are Brazilian, and one is a minor. The gender of the people was not given. (But were they MUSLIMS?)
Police acted because the group discussed using weapons and guerrilla tactics to potentially launch an attack during the Olympics, which begin Aug. 5, Moraes said.
However “they were complete amateurs and ill-prepared” to actually launch at attack, Moraes said. “A few days ago they said they should start practicing martial arts, for example.”
Still, Moraes said even disorganized groups should be taken seriously.
The arrests were made in 10 different states, including Sao Paulo and Parana in the southern part of the country, and it was not clear whether the suspects knew each other beyond their online contacts. Moraes said there were no specific targets for an attack.
Moraes said they had all been “baptized” as Islamic State sympathizers online and that none had actually traveled to Syria or Iraq, the group’s stronghold, or received any training. Several were allegedly trying to secure financing from the group, known by the acronym ISIS.
The justice minister added that one of the suspects communicated with a Brazilian store in an alleged attempt to buy an AK-47 assault rifle, apparently the most concrete action taken toward a possible attack.
Last week the top military aide for Brazil’s interim government said concerns over terrorism had “reached a higher level” after the attack in Nice, France.
Security has emerged as the top concern during the Olympics, including violence possibly spilling over from Rio’s hundreds of slums. Authorities have said they will be prepared and that some 85,000 police and soldiers will be patrolling during the competitions.
A muslim and a gun in the open!! That’s a nightmare ready to start.
CLEVELAND—On Tuesday afternoon, a bearded man with an AR-15 slung across his back stood in Cleveland’s Public Square, a plaza near the site of the Republican National Convention. That in itself wasn’t that unusual; there are a fair number people with facial hair and weapons milling about downtown. What made him stand out was his white knit skullcap. Micah Naziri, from Yellow Springs, Ohio, was an armed Muslim in a sea of often explicit Islamophobia.
He hadn’t had any confrontations, which, he said, was partly the point. “When there’s bullies, and they say, ‘We’re gonna get the Moslems, creeping sharia, we’re gonna stop it,’ and they’ve got their guns, and then somebody comes who is actually well-trained, actually better armed than them and not the least bit intimidated or afraid, they just don’t seem to feel like they want to talk as much,” he said.
Not far from where he stood, a group of burly men who called themselves Bible Believers ranted against Black Lives Matter. One of them held a giant black sign saying, “EVERY REAL MUSLIM IS A JIHADIST.” Another, who was black, wore a T-shirt saying, “PROUD TO BE AN INFIDEL. Islam is a LIE.”
Naziri and the Bible Believers avoided each other. “I don’t anticipate any violence whatsoever,” Naziri said. “It’s a statement.” All the same, he believes the oppressed should arm themselves. “I think anyone of any historically oppressed group or religious or ethno-religious minority should be arming themselves and training in self-defense,” he said. It will be interesting to see how many of the Second Amendment–loving Republican delegates agree.
