Gatestone: Fearless Swedish Somali woman speaks, and you should listen!

Especially so-called feminist women should listen!

Do not miss this interview of former refugee Mona Walter by Natalia Osten-Sacken at Gatestone Institute.

I’ve snipped just a bit of the interview, but the entire discussion is riveting.  See what she says about the moral equivalency the Pope has been promoting!

Muslim Advocates want DOJ and DHS to withdraw report on immigrant terrorism

This case filed in a California court (where else!) comes on the eve of the US Supreme Court hearing on the so-called Trump Muslim ban case scheduled to be heard this Wednesday.

See Reuters here for: Trump’s travel ban faces U.S. Supreme Court showdown.

Following is the news about the DHS/DOJ report that accompanied the ban and the case filed in California attempting to force the feds to withdraw the report.

From Northern California Record:

Muslim Advocates seek retraction of inflammatory report released by federal government

LOS ANGELES – Attorneys for Muslim Advocates recently filed a lawsuit with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the United States departments of Justice and Homeland Security regarding a recent report they claim is another step in President Donald Trump’s” anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant agenda.”

Catholics close 20 refugee offices, layoff hundreds as federal funding plummets

“There is not a Catholic Charities program that has not been impacted in some way…picture is not a pretty one.”

Jim Kuh, Director of immigration and refugee services for Catholic Charities USA

 

CATHOLIC CHARITIES USA(R) LOGOHere we go again, another whinny story about how that mean ol’ Donald Trump is hurting Catholic RELIGIOUS programs by cutting the number of refugees who come with federal funding attached to each one!

Before reading on check out the Capital Research Center tutorial on why it is bad policy all around for taxpayers to fund Catholic Charities.

This is what I think every time I see stories like this:

If the Catholic Church and its members want to help the poor throughout the world, they should use their own private charity!  And, better still, be brave and go to where the people are suffering and help them there. It is not the role of the US government to fund the church’s good works!

SPLC takes down their “Field Guide” to anti-Muslim extremists

Possibly getting wind of an upcoming lawsuit the Southern Poverty Law Center has apparently blinked and removed their October 2016 “Field Guide,” that included yours truly, from their website.

maajid nawaz

The SPLC listed Nawaz as an anti-Muslim extremist and he is reportedly planning to sue them.

The Field Guide was meant to let the media know who they were supposed to shun when seeking comment on anything to do with Islam.

If you visit my post on the ‘honor’ here you will see that the link to the news no longer works.

Feds find network bringing Syrians illegally across southern border

I’ve written many times over the years about how the world (not just Mexicans and Central Americans) is arriving at our southern border to seek asylum (if caught).  I’ve mentioned Somalis and Iraqis on other occasions and now it is Syrians according to a report in the Washington Times (hat tip: Joanne).

You might want to visit a post I wrote in 2011 in which I suggest the illegals know how to use the system and ask for asylum because they were taught the system. I believe there exists a cabal of immigration lawyers working closely with our usual gang of NGOs facilitating the process.

Washington Times:

The Treasury Department slapped sanctions Wednesday on a Syrian man and his criminal syndicate, blaming them for smuggling “hundreds” of illegal immigrants from Syria and Lebanon into Mexico and then helping them to jump the border into the U.S.

trump and sessions

I’m not one of those wishing to oust Attorney General Sessions. This is the kind of work I want him to do.  How we handle immigration is more significant for America’s future then if he was embroiled in the Russian meddling non-issue.

Miliband: US refugee admissions program under Trump is managed with malevolence and competence

When I saw this Washington Post Op-ed penned by British National David Miliband whose organization, one of nine federal refugee contractors*** (the International Rescue Committee) depends on just short of a half a billion! (see below) from the US Treasury each year, I thought it was kind of dumb to bite the hand that feeds them (and offers him, Miliband, a comfortable annual income of nearly $700,000).

David Miliband the king

Perhaps I am wrong, maybe David Miliband is giving most of his nearly $700,000 annual salary as charitable gifts to the refugees he sends to your towns.  Does anyone know? 

But, this is what the arrogant and entitled Far Left does because they have come to expect those millions as their just rewards for their ‘humanitarian’ zeal.

Another 50 of Australia’s rejected asylum seekers are on the way to Any Town, USA

The newest batch of 50 will join the 233 already here.  An Australian official who was originally involved with making the “dumb” deal with Barack Obama predicts the US will take all 1,250 and maybe more!

For new readers who have never heard of this incredibly stupid arrangement, see my entire archive of previous posts by clicking here.

The Trump Administration has selected 50 more for you to welcome to your towns and cities. Where are they being located? It is a secret!

Lutherans hire “transition” expert to get LIRS back on track

Earlier this month Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service announced a transition CEO (you could call him a fixer) in the wake of the sudden departure of former CEO Linda Hartke.

Can he save the organization?

Linda Hartke

Linda Hartke resigned amid internal turmoil.

Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart reports the story here:

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS), one of the nine voluntary agencies (VOLAGs)*** who, until the current fiscal year, have collectively been paid more than $1 billion annually by the federal government to resettle refugees, has named an interim CEO after the previous CEO, Linda Hartke, resigned abruptly in February.

Pew does a remix of its 2017 data on US Muslim vs. Foreign-born Muslim numbers

I would have to spend all day analyzing this data and I don’t have the time.  So I’m throwing out the latest from Pew on Muslim racial and ethnic makeup in the US for your consideration.

But before I get to the latest (glowing) report (remember it doesn’t look like a new study, just a rehash of 2017 numbers), this is the report they refer back to, click here, posted in July of 2017.

This paragraph is worth repeating, although Pew doesn’t repeat it in this latest piece.

When asked whether targeting and killing civilians can be justified to further a political, social or religious cause, 84% of U.S. Muslims say such tactics can rarely (8%) or never (76%) be justified, while 12% say such violence can sometimes (7%) or often (5%) be justified.

Sounds small doesn’t it? Only 12% say violence is sometimes or often justified.  But assume that there are 3 million Muslims in the US and consider that 12% represents 360,000 Muslims who believe that!

Here is the latest entitled:

Zogby: They are ready! “Muslim blue wave” going to the voting booth for Muslim candidates

This article at Financial Review reminded me of the story I first wrote in 2007 about a Frederick, MD Imam going to Saudi Arabia and reporting to the Saudis that they were ready then to elect 30 Muslim mayors by 2015.  It didn’t happen of course.

Russian writer at Bloomberg: Hungarians are xenophobic and old

And, according to Leonid Bershidsky writing at Bloomberg, they better get with it because they will demographically die if they don’t admit young Muslim migrant workers.

That is the gist of a too long opinion piece at Bloomberg.  I’ve snipped just a bit of the article entitled:

Hungary Is Winning Its War on Muslim Immigrants

Is Hungarian Zoltan Kovacs “xenophobic” or a realistic observer of the present and past!

UN Ambassador Haley: Most Syrians just want to go home

Clearly The Guardian doesn’t want to hear that bit of information.

Frankly, if there weren’t nine federal refugee contractors being paid on a per refugee head basis to bring refugees to your towns and cities, maybe then a realistic policy could be advanced to care for (legitimate) refugees near their homes so that returning them to their homes and to their familiar cultures would be the number one priority of humanitarian care.

Perhaps if this pattern could be broken now—Middle East wars=flow of migrants to the West—it would be a very important legacy for Trump to leave us with.

Trump and Nikki

Trump and Haley could break the pattern! No more knee jerk admission of ‘refugees’ with every Middle East conflict.

Feds will close 74 refugee offices during the course of this year

We knew this was happening, but this article at The Indypendent has some useful nuggets of information on the internal turmoil involving the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program which began in 1980 as a supposed public-private partnership, but has evolved in to an almost entirely publicly (taxpayer) funded industry.

I’m guessing that the average uninformed reader of this story is scratching his or her head and asking, how can the federal government ask non-profits to close their doors?

It is because the ‘non-profits’ are really fake charities and they can’t survive without the continuous infusion of federal dollars.

Here are a few nuggets from the story:

The Trump Administration is Dismantling the Refugee Resettlement System

April 1 marked the halfway point in the federal government’s fiscal year and, so far, the United States has only admitted 10,548 refugees, placing it on track to fall far short of its already record low admission ceiling of 45,000 individuals. Resettlement workers and refugee advocates say that this is further evidence of the Trump administration’s deliberate efforts to sabotage the refugee resettlement system now and for years to come.

Another Somali arrested in St. Cloud, Minnesota, tells nutty story about bomb plot

However, perhaps more interesting is the lack of mention of the arrested man’s name, a critical omission in the first St. Cloud Times version of the story.

Apparently, only after a local radio station posts his pic and names him, did the politically correct St. Cloud Times bother to report that vital information.

Mayor welcomes Somalis, so why would they want to bomb city hall?

Remember when you read this first account on the 11th, which quotes the great defender of all things Somali, Mayor Kleis, that this office ostensibly targeted for a bomb, is the very office that is silent on anything relating to crimes involving Somalis the office welcomes to St. Cloud with open arms.

The “suspect” (the man) had already been arrested when the St. Cloud Times said this (hat tip: Bob):

Law enforcement has taken a suspect into custody in connection with a bomb threat at St. Cloud City Hall, according to authorities.

Mayor Kleis: no threat to the public (?)

Refugees trickle in to Twin Falls, Idaho

Add “trickle” to our descriptive media word-list about this years’ refugee flow to America.

Previously we joked about “plummeting” numbers (dip, tumble, drop dramatically, drastically decline, etc.). Now we can add “trickle.”

lavinia-and-chobani

Back in the good ‘ol days, Lavinia Limon (USCRI) was sending Mr. Chobani Yogurt (Hamdi Ulukaya) his workers for Twin Falls.

Mr. Chobani Yogurt must be a bit annoyed as the refugee worker stream to his Twin Falls yogurt plant must be trickling too.

And, heck, he even lost pal, doyenne of the refugee contractors, Lavinia Limon last fall. See here.

Antifa, CAIR and the Southern Poverty Law Center work together to silence speech

You haven’t seen it on cable news, or on the pages of the Washington Post or the New York Times, but last weekend brazen domestic terrorists working on behalf of Islamists shut down speaking events they disapproved of in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

This extremist tactic of intimidating speaking venues, such as hotels, isn’t new, but it is on the upswing in the age of Trump. And, I think that is because the Hard Left has really lost it, their frustration and anger at losing the White House must have pushed them psychologically over the edge. They are very dangerous people.

Our friend James Simpson has the full story here at The Daily Caller.

Here are a few snips:

Press Release: International Rescue Committee (again) on low Trump refugee admission numbers

In a press release dated yesterday, the Manhattan-based International Rescue Committee (IRC) asks its followers to contact members of Congress and Senators to pressure the Prez to fulfill the 45,000 refugee CEILING set by Trump last fall.

brexit-news-tony-blair-1072435

From his perch in Manhattan, Miliband pulls down a nearly $700,000 annual salary (doing well by doing good!) while he dabbles in UK politics, specifically the Brexit controversy.   https://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/856974/Brexit-news-Tony-Blair-EU-latest-news-Concordia-summit-David-Miliband

At the present rate the Trump State Department will admit about half that number and the resettlement contractors*** are shaking in their boots.

Each refugee admitted represents money, your money, to their budgets and reports are that at least one of the nine that have monopolized all resettlement to the US for a decade might not survive.

Brookings has questions about refugee policy for Secretary of State nominee Pompeo

This is really a kind of ‘nothing-burger’ article from a policy wonk at the Brooking’s Institution attempting to influence the Far Left Dems to ask questions about refugees when Trump’s new pick to head the US State Department, Mike Pompeo, goes before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today.
