Like most right-wing morons, you jumped to a bogus conclusion based on bad information. It's clear that you haven't read the executive order, which probably requires a larger vocabulary than someone like you can command.
The executive order applies to EducationUSA, which is the U.S. government's overseas education arm. While it does allow some students to study in the U.S., there are considerable compliance requirements in place. Basically, EducationUSA hands out grants.
There is not one word in this order concerning immigration and resettlement, Palestinian or otherwise. The only reference to Palestinians I could find concerned making sure that any plans to include the Palestinian Authority are done in compliance with regulations.

That's why your item didn't make the news, dimwit. It never happened. Tbis is yet another example of the right wing's endless capacity for misunderstanding and getting things wrong.

The Nobel Peace Prize Weather Curse!
Interestingly enough, severe winter weather followed each of the previous three presidents' awards, which raises questions if this year will follow the same pattern.
Theodore Roosevelt won the award in 1906 during his tenure as president. The winter of 1906-07 saw a severe February 4-6 nor'easter that produced up to 10 inches of snow from Washington to Boston, according to Paul Kocin and Louis Uccellini, authors of "Northeast Snowstorms."
Woodrow Wilson won the award in 1919 while in office, and following winter saw several severe storms. A late January storm dumped ice, sleet and snow across the Northeast.
This storm was immediately followed with a slow-moving February 4-7 storm that left heavy amounts of snowfall from Maine to northern Virginia. According to Kocin and Uccellini, this February storm brought what at the time was considered "some of the harshest winter conditions ever experienced."
More recently, Jimmy Carter received the award in 2002. The North American blizzard of 2003, which lasted from Feb. 14-19, dumped between 15-30 inches of snow in the major Northeast cities. Boston had a total of 27.6 inches, 23.6 inches on February 17 alone.
Well, we can't say that God was not trying to warn us about glorifing liberals, I wonder what catastrophe the Annointed One will bring on. Maybe Chicago drowns under a tidal wave out of Lake Michigan? One can only speculate.

<quoted text> While the way Native Americans have been treated in this country has been horrendous, and totally despicable many people from everywhere are here now, and I don't see them leaving. Some came here of their own volition and others were brought here by parents and by cruel and greedy slave owners. What we have now is a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic country. Life is a continuum, we will move forward in change and that's a guarantee. I do think that as a country we owe a great, great deal to both African Americans and Native Americans.
Right! And the caucasion population has paid through the nose. When are we going to see some return on the monstrous investment we have been forced to pay to these dragging anchors on the ship of state.

Yes, it does take courage, and George Bush had plenty of it in that regard. However, in the current year, we have people who are trying to help the country recover (Democrats) and people who are trying to keep the misery going as long as possible by means of obstructionism and lying (Republicans). We also have clowns who declare those who are trying to help "modern liberals" and then smear them. I think we need to deal with "modern conservatives", those who want to kill anyone who disagrees with them (OK, some only want to cripple them).
You can talk to anyone without hurting the country. Reagan talked to Iran. The push is not for a government take-over of the health care system (and anyone that says it is is a LIAR); it is mainly a reform of health insurance (those companies with escalating profits and predictions of doom). The spending in a down economy is a long-standing method of recovery; reference Roosevelt (and Bush II, by the way).
Modern Conservatives are assasins trying to kill the country. How do you like that?
You said: "Modern Conservatives are assasins trying to kill the country. How do you like that?"

The problem with your assertions is that Obama is not pro-American. He's anti-American.

Obama is hurting the country. Why is he pushing for the government to take over the healthcare industry while the economy is doing so poorly? Businesses are in some very uncertain times and the spectre of a government takeover is scary.

Who in the their right mind thinks companies will start hiring in substantial numbers anytime soon????

And what about the massive carbon taxes that they want to push on us? This will further depress the economy.

One the scariest parts is that neither Obama nor Congress is reading the bills!!!! Obama said he would get lobbyists out, but he has hired some and they are writing the bills!!!

Obama is terrible. He is doing everything wrong - despite what the liberal media says. He is weakening the country.

As far as the war in Afghanistan, Obama is trying something new that eluded W. He is trying diplomacy. Look it up. It is communicating with the rest of the world, including our allies instead of going it alone and even if he does end up beefing it up in Afghanistan it would be in an attempt to end the war without it dragging on another 7 years with no solution. The war was against al queada. Bush lost that war by shifting his priorities to a problem he imagined.
ROFL! Yea, diplomacy with terrorists.

Most of you and half of me also came from immigrants to this country. What makes you so much better than the ones coming now?
The difference being is that immigrants of years ago didn't dump themselves in the laps of this country's hard-working Americans and expect free money, free food, free medical. Yesterday's immigrants came here and either sank or swam. We don't need immigrants that expect others to do everything for them. I'd say there's a whole lot of difference between immigration yesterday, and immigration today. Immigrants have no business making demands from a country that is not theirs. Let them work their ass off just like those who came before them.

Kinda like your ancestors did? I don't see anyone in this country speaking Sioux.
And for the thanks for voting for BHO, You very welcome it truly was my pleasure.
Guess what? Those who spoke Sioux were the Lakota. And the other tribes had their own languages. And maybe if they had tougher immigration laws, your observation wouldn't be so pointless.

I think its pretty rediculous that the people would actually give a nobel peice prize to someone who cant even manage to run his own country. Wait a year or two when Obama has to finally quit blamming his screw ups on the busch and will see if you want your nobel peice prize back.
I actually thought that winning a nobel peice prize was a great accomplishment but I guess this just goes to show that its just another joke thats caught up in big government.
That's funny. Did Mother Teresa run her country?
