    WASHINGTON — A top administration official said Sunday that the U.S. government is carefully vetting Syrian refugees to make sure there are no terrorists among them, but congressional Republicans were skeptical.
    One of the suicide bombers involved in the terrorist attacks on Paris reportedly entered through Greece amid Syrian refugees.
    "We have very extensive screening procedures for all Syrian refugees who come to the United States," said White House Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes on NBC's Meet the Press. "There is a very careful vetting process that includes our intelligence community, our Counterterrorism Center and the Department of Homeland Security."
    Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., a member of the House homeland security and intelligence committees, said the administration is "rolling the dice" by taking in Syrian refugees. He said there is no true vetting process because there are no government records or databases in Syria to confirm the identities of the refugees.
    "We don't know who these people are," King said on Fox News Sunday.

    He said President Obama should immediately stop taking Syrian refugees into the United States. Obama has said he wants the United States to take in at least 10,000 refugees who are fleeing for their lives from war-torn Syria.
    "He should absolutely suspend it (the refugee program) unless they can show 100 percent that a person is not involved with ISIS," King said, referring to Islamic State terrorists."Right now, there is no responsible way to do the vetting, and that’s the reality."
    Rhodes said the United States should not turn its back on the refugees.
    "Let’s remember we’re also dealing with people who suffer the horrors of war," he said. "Women and children, orphans. We can’t just shut our doors to those people. We need to do our part to take refugees in need."
    House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said there are "gaping holes" in the vetting system for the Syrian refugees.
    "We (Congress) don't want to be complicit in a program that could bring terrorists into the U.S.," he said.
    The House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security has scheduled a hearing Thursday on the Syrian refugee crisis and its implications for U.S. security.

    Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., a candidate for the GOP nomination for president, said most of the refugees are innocent people, but that Islamic State terrorists may be hiding among them.
    "This is a swarm of refugees," he said. "You can have 1,000 people come in, and 999 of them are just poor people fleeing oppression and violence, but one of them is an ISIS fighter. If that’s the case, you have a problem, and there is no way to vet that out."

    Look, these people are not our problem. They are their own problem. They started the civil war. They let ISIS take root in their country. They stole money from the CIA to fund rebels who were really ISIS. If you don't think if we started a civil war to overthrow the US government that the US government wouldn't cloud up and rain every single weapon it has on "we the people", much the way Assad did to restore order, then you need to think again.

    These people need to go home and make peace with their government and work it out from there. It's their problem, not ours. Any member of Congress, any church, any official of any city, county or state government that pushes to accept these or any other refugees, needs to be kicked the curb.

    Our government is infested with the worst combination of stupidity and insanity. And frankly, I believe this infestation has affected the vast majority of our representatives and officials. There are so few who aren't infested yet, that they don't really matter, because they are much under siege as we are.

    I'm listening to Paul Ryan right now on 60 Minutes, and he is truly and completely Moron Number One. He is so stupid, he doesn't even know he's stupid. And for any member of Congress to have believed this man could do anything to solve our problems, is just so off the mark, it's ridiculous.

    This moron just said that his job isn't to listen to the polls which means listen to the people, his job is to do what he believes in and be willing to lose re-election to achieve it. Then he says he believes that's what the founders intended.

    No, you stupid idiot, the founders intended for all members of Congress to represent the will of the American People, not exploit the privilege of being a representative of the people to do what you personally believe in when it totally contradicts the will of the people.

    Where did someone like Paul Ryan get the idea that representatives of the people were elected to do the opposite of what the people want and need only to please themselves or their donors or their next employer?

    Fellow Americans, we need to get this cleared up right away. This is the type of person the religious right is stuffing our Congress with, it is destroying our country, and it has to stop and stop now. You want these stupid leaders who are following "GOD" instead of the will of the people? Then you will without a doubt suffer the grotesque consequences of these arrogant, self-centered, scam artists using their religious beliefs to betray the American People.
