Hey Maine dummies: Just because they are Africans doesn’t mean they carry Ebola

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2014

And, you know stereotyping is very wrong and doing so makes you a very very bad person.

RRW geography lesson! Just found this very useful map that updates every day the countries where Ebola has been reported (in case you plan to go to Africa).

I just re-read this article and wondered why it was news.

We know here at RRW that Maine is in overload with its mostly African immigrants and the recent rush of asylum seekers, but this article is nothing more than a lecture to those dummies (I’m not calling anyone a dummy!) who live in Maine and don’t know about geography and other such things more worldly people might know about.

Read it yourselves.  The bottom line is that no one can seem to find any Africans in Maine yet stereotyped as possible Ebola carriers, but just in case you Mainers have a hankering to start stereotyping, don’t do it says the Portland Press Herald.

…representatives of several Maine immigrant communities in Portland and Lewiston-Auburn said they have not experienced any negative interactions because of the Ebola outbreak.

But rest assured, the powers-that-be are getting a jump on the non-problem by distributing information on how you should be thinking.

By the way, it isn’t just happening in Maine, I saw other articles before I went away where “communities” were heading stereotyping off-at-the- pass.

One more effort to drill in the immigrants-are-victims meme (but, hey, aren’t they now stereotyping?).

About the map which can be found by clicking here—Tourism Update says it is updated every day.  Cool huh?

See our Health Issues category for more on refugee and immigrant health in America.

And in case you aren’t aware we are taking refugees right now from DR Congo.  The State Department is trying to get about 50,000 of them in here.

Obama “welcomes” 100,000 Haitians to your towns and cities

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2014

Obama is getting it done with his pen and phone while everyone yaks about the Republicans possibly winning the Senate in a few weeks and while we follow shiny objects—like the Ebola mess.

Obama getting it done!

Folks I hate to break it to you, but Obama will have two years to do his unlawful work because even if Republicans take control of the Congressional branch there appear to be few leaders who have any guts there to stop (or undo) any of the outrageous executive actions he is getting done.

I don’t understand why more Republican Senators and Congressional leaders don’t speak up now and thus assure their victory in November.

We better hope the 80-year-old Senator Grassley stays in the Senate and stays healthy!

By the way, there are already tens of thousands of Haitians here legally under Temporary Protected Status.  See our category on Haiti, here, to learn how that came about. Since they are here legally I expect their families will be applying for family reunification under the new Obama plan.

I’m also guessing that these new Haitians will come under the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement and their contractors thus making this another expansion (in addition to the UACs) of the definition of the word ‘refugee’ and further broadening the refugee resettlement program thus giving the new Haitians immediate access to welfare, one of the plums that comes to those designated as “refugees.”  (Someone correct me if I am wrong!).

From the Washington Times (hat tip: Erich):

The ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee took the Obama administration to task Friday for its “irresponsible” plan to allow as many as 100,000 Haitians to immigrate to the U.S. without a visa.

Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said the administration’s Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program — which will allow thousands of Haitians awaiting a U.S. visa to enter the country and legally apply for work permits — is “an irresponsible overreach of the executive branch’s authority.”

Which countries are next on President Obama’s list?” Mr. Grassley said. “Will there by medical screenings before entry? Will work permits be granted automatically? How will this affect American workers?”

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the branch of the Department of Homeland Security that handles immigration benefits cases, announced Friday the program to unite Haitians already living in the U.S. with family members abroad will ramp up in 2015.

At that time the State Department’s National Visa Center will begin notifying families who may be eligible to take part in the program. Those immigrants will allowed to apply for work permits while waiting for issuance of their permanent visas.

The agency said the program will expedite “safe, legal and orderly migration.”

NGOs organize Cambodian protesters to oppose Australia refugee deal

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2014

What! Not “welcoming” refugees in Cambodia? Are these Cambodians racists, xenophobes (maybe even Islamophobes)?

Cambodians protesting in Phnom Penh. We don’t want refugees here! We have our own poor people to take care of! Gee! Where have I heard that before? Reuters photo.

 

If you are arriving here for the first time, please see our ‘Australia category’ for all the background on this.  The gist of it is that Australia has struck a very lucrative deal for the Cambodian government to take some of Australia’s boat people asylum-seekers and resettle them in Cambodia.

Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison royally ticked-off the humanitarian industrial complex when he dared ask—if the asylum seekers want safety, then why not resettle in Cambodia?  Why, he asked, do they have a right to a first world country?   See our recent post.

So here is the latest:  The Leftwing Non-governmental Organizations have ginned-up demonstrations in Phnom Penh where demonstrators demanded that Australia keep the asylum seekers.

You know what strikes me as so funny (sort of) is that no one calls the Cambodians “racists” or “xenophobes” for not wanting the refugees and wanting their own people taken care of first!    Imagine if we took to the streets with placards not wanting to “welcome” refugees!

From Reuters:

Movements, students and religious organizations have joined a growing chorus of opposition to Cambodia’s agreement to resettle refugees from Australia.

Protesters in Cambodia issued a petition on Friday calling for the government to ditch a controversial agreement to resettle refugees redirected from Australia.

[.....]

The march was in response to a controversial deal inked between the Cambodian and Australian governments in late September.

Under the deal, the Cambodian government agreed to take in refugees from Australian detention centers, in exchange for cash from Canberra to cover resettlement costs.

The Australian government sweetened the deal by pledging around US$35 million in development projects over the next four years. While both governments say the deal guarantees refugees their rights under international law, the thousands of protesters who took to the streets of Phnom Penh thought otherwise.

The article goes on to quote protestors who say their own poor people are not being adequately cared-for.

Sure looks like some skilled ‘community organizers’ and outside agitators have moved in to whip up a frenzy!  Funny though that the mainstream media plays right along when the demonstration fits the media’s agenda as well.

Organized by a broad coalition of NGOs, monks, students and others, the protesters delivered a petition condemning the deal to the government, offices of the United Nations and European Union, and embassies of Australia and United States.  [Why in front of the US embassy, is this any of our business?---ed]

It wasn’t long ago that Israelis went to the streets and said they didn’t want refugees there either and all hell broke loose and worldwide criticism followed.  Here is one story from January 2013 about citizens of Tel Aviv demonstrating and wanting African migrants deported, but of course those demonstrators weren’t treated with kid gloves by the media as the Cambodians are.  Funny how that double-standard works, isn’t it?

Remember Cloward and Piven and how to bring on the revolution while hiding behind the shield of good intentions?  We get it! We know that it is all about flooding wealthy western countries with third world impoverished people in order to bring down the West.

Nashville school system a wreck due to immigrant overload and poverty

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 16, 2014

Responsible! David Lubell, Welcoming America

I wish now I had the time before I go away for a few days to post all the stories I had piled up about school systems across America in deep financial (and social) trouble due largely to the cost of educating immigrant children whose needs are enormous.  I was planning a big post on the ‘towers of babel’ problem and wish now I had posted them individually.

Responsible! Holly Johnson Catholic Charities

Here is one, at the Nashville Scene (considered a far-Left publication) entitled: As Nashville’s immigrant population grows, Metro public schools are straining at the seams that just came in this morning and will leave it to you to read.

The Nashville public school system is deteriorating as it struggles to educate students speaking 38 languages (we have actually seen some school systems with more than that number of languages) and who come from impoverished immigrant homes, while Nashville citizens who can afford it, are pulling their kids out of the public schools.

And as readers here know, Catholic Charities is busy, busy, busy bringing more refugees into Nashville.

Responsible! Tom Negri needed more cheap labor for the hotel industry.

Here is just a bit of the Nashville Scene story:

 Mishell [the immigrant star of the story---ed] attends Overton High School, considered one of the entry points for Nashville’s immigrant population into the public school system, and hence into American life. It’s a stone’s throw from tony private Franklin Road Academy, and just three minutes from the governor’s mansion.

But it might as well be in another country. The school is bursting at the seams, and a staggering 70 percent of its student body — that’s 7 out of every 10 kids — comes from a low-income family.

That hurdle is compounded by a vast communications gap. At Overton, which serves South Nashville’s sprawling mix of immigrant cultures, some 38 separate languages are spoken. At nearby high schools Glencliff and Antioch, according to the state report card, more than 1 in 6 students are trying to learn English while speaking another language at home.

For new readers we have an entire category (74 previous posts!) on the problems Nashville has had going back years as a preferred refugee resettlement site.  I find reader shocked to learn that Nashville is so far gone, it is such an unlikely place for massive demographic change.

Photos:  I am sure there are more I could post of those responsible for the travesty Nashville’s public school system faces, but I am running out of time before I go away—be back Monday (the 20th) to post your comments.

UNHCR: Europe has to take more Syrian refugees; rich Arab countries not criticized

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 16, 2014

Speaking in the United Arab Emirates (of all places), Socialist UN High Commissioner for Refugees admonishes European nations (again)—allow more Syrian refugees into your countries!

UN High Commissioner for Refugees Guterres never demands that rich Arab countries take in their fellow Muslim refugees!

From the Associated Press:

SHARJAH, United Arab Emirates (AP) – The head of the United Nations refugee agency on Wednesday urged countries, particularly in Europe, to review their laws to allow entry to more Syrians fleeing their country’s civil war.

Antonio Guterres said on the sidelines of a conference in the United Arab Emirates that a refugee crisis across the Middle East is a global security threat. He urged more legal avenues for Syrian refugees to resettle in Europe, and avoid risking their lives with smugglers.

“This is not only the worst humanitarian crisis in the last decades, it is also the biggest threat to regional peace and security,” he said. “It’s a global threat.”

Blah, Blah, Blah…

Then near the end.  Remember that some wealthy Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, TAKE NO REFUGEES:

The conference was hosted by Sharjah ruler Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi and his wife Sheikha Jawaher.

The United Arab Emirates, along with the five other energy-rich nations of the Gulf Cooperation Council, have been criticized by rights groups for not opening their borders to refugees from the myriad of conflicts across the region.

Guterres said he is calling on all countries, everywhere, to do more.   [Maybe, but it is Europe, the US, Canada and Australia he chastises on a regular basis!---ed]

Is Guterres too chicken or is his goal to help spread the Muslim population worldwide?

End note:  RRW will be taking a break beginning today after we post a few more stories.  Be back on October 20th and will be able to post your comments then.

Romanians living in London subway demand homes

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 16, 2014

It is not just Muslim migrants over-running Europe and expecting services, here is a story from London about Romanians living in the subway system.  They say they will move if given homes.

 

Romanians camp in subway at Park Lane. Notice the nervous-looking Mom and daughter slipping by them.

 

From the Daily Mail which always seems to find the most interesting news! (hat tip:  ‘pungentpeppers’):

A gang of Romanian beggars sleeping rough on one of London’s most exclusive streets today demanded: ‘We’re EU citizens, give us houses’.

The 40-strong group sleeping in a subway under Park Lane have been accused of turning it into a ‘slum’ having lived in various camps near Marble Arch for 18 months.

Local businesses believe they have driven away customers because of the mess and members of the group urinating in the street and fighting with rivals.

Today the group said they are willing to pack up their cardboard boxes if Westminster Council found them homes.

Read it all.  Besides being a nuisance and responsible for an up-tick in petty crime, local businesses say their ‘camps’ are bad for business—check out the photos!

How much time before we see encampments like these in American subways and parks?

End note:  RRW will be taking a break beginning today after we post a few more stories.  Be back on October 20th and will be able to post your comments then.

Swedes seek out alternative media to read about one thing: immigration!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 16, 2014

Here is more proof for my case that Sweden will be the first socialist ‘heaven’ to fall under the weight of needy migrant hordes—mostly Muslim migrants!

I’ve noticed here, even at tiny RRW, that we get more visitors reading about Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands or the UK than we often do about some juicy American news.  A blogger friend once told me that the reason for that is that the European press hardly touches the verboten topic.

From Dispatch International (hat tip: FatherJon):

Jimmy Åkesson leader of the Sweden Democrats needs police protection because he dares to speak about Swedish immigration policy. Photo: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/sep/09/guardian-view-on-swedish-elections

The Englishman Iain Channing returns to Sweden, the country he lived in during the 1980s. What has happened to the safe and well ordered country that was so admired throughout the world? Do people really appreciate the politicians’ radical experiment in social engineering? And what about Malmö – Sweden’s preeminent test tube?

To understand how things have reached this pass—when an ordinary working class guy resorts to a self-censorship gesture used in communist countries—you only need to read the Swedish press. Mass immigration is not quite a taboo, but all criticism of it is censored, distorted or demonized. An almost daily barrage of hate and slander is directed at the Sweden Democrats (SD), the anti-immigration party that is now shaking up Sweden’s cosy coalition-based politics. “SD are trying to delude the working class.” “SD are still racists!” “How far to the right will [SD leader] Jimmy Åkesson go?”

Every single newspaper story I read about SD in a month in Sweden—and there were a lot, because its rise (to 10 percent in the polls) has become a real headache for the establishment—was negative and often littered with childish, abusive epithets originating in World War II. In such an environment, the party does not list an address on its website, and its three top leaders require police protection.

Channing goes on to discuss how Swedes are finding alternative media for their news on the issue that they are most concerned about…

It is all about immigration, immigration, immigration!

….the issue of immigration will not go away. On the contrary, the unmentionable topic has become a national obsession. According to columnist Hakelius, “[people who send me letters now] are interested in one thing: immigration. The discussion can begin wherever it likes, but it always ends with immigration. Immigration, immigration, immigration, immigration, immigration.”

Read it all, and then check out our extensive archive on Sweden.  One of our top posts of all time is this one (photo link seems to be gone now).

Rural Dutch province under siege with influx of asylum seekers; single African men a big problem

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 15, 2014

This is one more in our ‘invasion of Europe’ series….

Yesterday we told you about the English town of Middlesbrough and how residents there are struggling to cope with the flood of asylum seekers (Africans and Middle Easterners) in need of homes and services, today it is a rural region of the Netherlands feeling the strain.

 

Drenthe is a province in Holland known for its scenic beauty and outdoor recreation. http://www.nederlandfietsland.nl/en/cycling-province-of/drenthe

 

From Dutch News (hat tip: Diana).  They were filling up a vacation park.

Fewer asylum seekers will be placed in a holiday park in rural Drenthe than the 1,400 originally planned, officials have decided, after locals complained of being overwhelmed by so many people.

The Pipodorp park is currently home to 400 asylum seekers and the problems are being caused by a group of around 100 single men, many from Eritrea, Nos television said.  [The men all probably got into Europe as 'boat people' who then just made their way north.  They are supposed to stay in the first country they reach in Europe, but they don't care about EU rules!---ed]

Locals have complained that minibuses they use to get around are now full of refugees and shop-keepers have spoken of 40 at a time turning up in the village shop. Oranje itself has a population of around 120.

Local mayor Jan Broertjes has now agreed with the national refugee placement agency COA that only families from Syria will be placed in the park. The men will be relocated later on Wednesday.

Wifi

The Oranje park will now be given security guards and wifi, so that residents no longer have to go into the village to use the internet.

There has been a surge in refugee numbers, particularly from Syria, in recent months. In the first six months of the year, some 12,300 people requested asylum in the Netherlands, double the 2013 figure.

Earlier, school chiefs said they were struggling to cope with the number of refugee children.

We bring you these stories from Europe (about the invasion) for a couple of reasons:  We have many European readers who follow us every day and because Americans need to know how bad it could get.

Rush Limbaugh: US military more worried about climate refugees than ISIS, Ebola and Putin

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 15, 2014

 

I had to laugh when I heard Limbaugh talking about climate refugees—-something we have been reporting on for years here at RRW.  In fact, we are probably your go-to site for climate refugee news from a skeptical perspective.  It’s not that I don’t think people will be on the move around the world due to changing factors in the environment—hasn’t that happened since the beginning of the human race?—it’s just that now it will be used as one more way to bludgeon us into opening our wallets and letting the world move in next door.

See our “climate refugees” category by clicking here (this is our 40th post on the subject):

Here is Rush (emphasis mine):

RUSH: I had this in the Stack two days ago, meaning last Friday, I had it in the Stack yesterday, just touched on it. But let me give you a little thing here just to make a point, keep things in perspective. I mentioned yesterday the Pentagon is now developing strategies as to how to handle climate change, the Pentagon.

On the basis of what? You might say, the Pentagon, the defense department, climate change, what the heck is the connection?

You’ve got to understand who is at the Pentagon now. It’s not your average George C. Scott who wants to bomb the commies anymore. You’ve got extensions of Barack Obama in the Defense Department. So when the Pentagon talks about the fear that global warming is something they have to strategize and have to have ready to go, what it means is global warming is going to cause more pestilence. It’s going to cause more starvation.

It’s going to cause drought and it’s going to cause floods and it’s going to cause cold weather and hot weather, and all of this is going to create refugees like we’ve never seen. And these refugees are going to be marching all over the globe trying to escape the harsh conditions global warming will bring on, and that is what will present the challenge to the US military.

Don’t misunderstand. It’s not that the military is devising weapons to stop climate change. The military, under orders from Obama, is coming up with strategies to deal with the pests. The locusts, for example, and all the destruction that will be caused by global warming which will lead to increased numbers of poverty stricken refugees. And it will basically be a crowd control operation. That’s what the Pentagon’s global climate change military strategy planning is all about. Crowd control. When you get right down to it. And it’s ridiculous.

He goes on, read it all.

Then please visit our ‘climate refugees’ category, here.

Obama sure is working overtime to change the subject!  Could the Ebola news and the ISIS news get any worse?
