Aurora, CO: (another) whiny story, this time about Somali girls who wanted to join ISIS

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 30, 2014

Are you as sick to death of stories like this one as I am where we hear about disenfranchised Somali youths who have to be saved from leaving the good life in America to join Jihadists somewhere in the world.

Think of the amount of resources (tax payer dollars) going into the FBI outreach to the “Somali community” in Colorado right now in hopes of thwarting the next wannabe ISIS member.

And, in addition we get one more public relations opportunity for the “Somali community” to put on their victimhood act.

I say, let them go, but revoke their passports and don’t let them back into America to potentially hurt someone here.

What benefit will these angry (dumb!) Somali girls be to America?

See the ‘Girls jihadi quest stirs muslim communities fear‘ AP story at US News and World Report:

AURORA, Colo. (AP) — The strange journey of three suburban Denver girls who authorities say tried to join Islamic State militants in Syria has many in their close-knit east African community worried about whether their own children will be the next to be lured to terror.

The girls’ voyage has mystified many in the U.S., and has been even more troubling among Aurora’s Somali and Sudanese immigrants, thousands of whom fled civil war and forged new lives in the Denver suburbs, where refugees easily find jobs driving cabs or working in the meat industry.*** [LOL! it just occurred to me that these Somalis may be in Aurora thanks to the premier federal refugee contractor and supplier of cheap immigrant labor for the meat packing industry in Colorado---Lutheran Family Services I just wrote about yesterday.---ed]

But while the girls’ parents were working to give them a better life, being a Muslim teenager isn’t easy in an American high school, said Ahmed Odowaay, a community advocate who works with youth. It’s easy to feel like an outsider, even as a U.S. citizen.

Even his 10-year-old daughter gets taunts of “terrorist” when she wears her hijab in school, he said.  [how do we know this is true?---ed]

Read it all, here.

***I hope some day to find out exactly how BIG MEAT works with the refugee contractors and the US State Department to get their immigrant (refugee) laborers. Is it an overt deal between the feds and the meat industry or more of a wink and a nod?  In 2008, we did find direct evidence of the role played by the Clinton Administration in bringing in Bosnian (Muslim) ‘refugee’ labor for the Iowa meat packers, here, but I would like to find something more recent.

Illegal alien advocacy group alerts non-citizens to states where they can vote without ID

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 30, 2014

And, there are twenty, twenty! states including my Maryland that allow voters to show up (and vote!) at a polling place without any identification.

La Raza’s good pal!

It is not just the illegals….

Remember also, we are not talking only about someone who recently sneaked across the border, but millions of legal immigrants who are here as refugees, temporary refugees in the Temporary Protected Status program (includes hundreds of thousands from Central America), the ‘Dreamers,’ and all sorts of others with permanent resident status who have not yet acquired citizenship.  All are able to vote.

As a matter of fact, even in those states that do require ID, those LEGAL immigrants (non-citizens) with drivers licenses may well be voting too!

Here is the story at the Daily Caller:

The pro-amnesty Hispanic activist organization the National Council of La Raza helpfully promoted a Washington Post article explaining which states people can vote in without having to use a photo ID.

“Voter ID laws are at-issue across the country, with newly Republican-controlled legislatures having passed them in numerous states after the 2010 election,” explained The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake. “Most states still request some form of ID, but don’t require it. Another 20 states don’t require identification. In case you’re wondering where your state is at in all of this, a helpful (sic) graphic from the Post’s graphics team.”

So who ended up using the Post’s helpful graphic? The country’s foremost pro-amnesty Hispanic immigrant organization.

Go here (Washington Post) to see the list of states and what sort of ID (or none at all) that is required.

UK will NOT join EU in plan to rescue migrants in Mediterranean Sea

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 29, 2014

‘Invasion of Europe’ news…..

They say that Italy’s huge effort (soon to end) to rescue the ‘boat people’ illegal migrants trying to reach Europe from North Africa has created a “pull factor.”  No kidding!

 

Having followed this issue for years, I never dreamed I would see the day when some European country would have the guts to tell this important truth!

And, remember American readers, we have created a “pull factor” by taking illegal migrants who reach Malta to the US as refugees!

From SBS.News:

Britain says it won’t join an EU program to help rescue refugees and migrants sailing across the Mediterranean, expressing sentiments that echo the policy on ‘maritime arrivals’ adopted in Australia.

[....]

Asked recently in the House of Lords what naval or air-sea rescue contribution the British government would make to the refugee crisis in the Mediterranean, foreign minister Baroness Anelay replied:

“We do not support planned search and rescue operations in the Mediterranean. We believe that they create an unintended ‘pull factor’, encouraging more migrants to attempt the dangerous sea crossing and thereby leading to more tragic and unnecessary deaths.”

The ‘humanitarian industrial complex’ has reacted with not-unexpected rage!

But refugee advocates have reacted with anger to the British government’s refusal to take part in future search operations in the Mediterranean.

“The British government seems oblivious to the fact that the world is in the grip of the greatest refugee crisis since the Second World War,” Maurice Wren, chief executive of British Refugee Council said in a statement.

So what is their answer—MORE legal immigration!

“The answer isn’t to build the walls of fortress Europe higher, it’s to provide more safe and legal channels for people to access protection.”

See our ‘invasion of Europe’ series here.  And, if you have time, see our seven years of stories about the mess we have created for Malta.  We took 531 of Malta’s illegal aliens to the US in FY2014!  (See that there were 434 cases and 531 individuals admitted, that means most were single adults.)

Some Somali young man who got on a boat in North Africa (probably Libya) is now being cared for with your tax dollars in your town.

Generous Germany in turmoil as Muslim factions fight each other; right wing demonstrators take to streets

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 29, 2014

Backlash against the ‘invasion of Europe’?

Demonstration in Cologne over the weekend opposing Islam turned violent. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/10/26/germany-far-right-demonstration-against-islamic-extremism-turns-violent/ (AP Photo/dpa,Caroline Seide) (The Associated Press)

By all accounts, Germany has been the most “welcoming” European country to take in mostly Muslim Syrian refugees (the most welcome in the world after those in the Middle East) and look what it gets them—Turmoil! Violence! Civil unrest!

Update:  Not really an update but reader Cathy sent us this youtube clip about the brave woman in Germany standing up to Islam in the church of Martin Luther (ironic isn’t it that it is the Lutheran Church in America resettling Muslims in many towns and cities.)

From Haaretz:

Besides risk posed by German jihadists returning from Syria, there was also the danger of violent clashes on German streets as rival extremist groups turn on each other.

Radical Islam poses a critical security threat to Germany, the nation’s interior minister warned Tuesday, on the same day that Germany pledged half a billion Euros to aid displaced Syrian refugees.

The number of people capable of staging attacks in Germany stood at an all-time high, said Thomas de Maiziere, warning that besides the risk posed by German jihadists returning from Syria, there was also the danger of violent clashes on German streets as rival extremist groups turn on each other – mirroring the conflicts of the Middle East.

You can bet the demo on Sunday wasn’t just about the radical Islamic ideology Salafism, it was about immigration of more Muslims to Germany invited in by the German government.

On Sunday, a group of 4,000 far-right supporters staged an anti-Salafist march in the western city of Cologne, pelting police with stones, bottles and fireworks, injuring 49 officers.

Read it all.

By the way, as we write this, leaders from a whole host of nations are meeting in Germany to figure out what do do about the Syrian refugees. Our Asst. Sec. of State for Population, Refugees and Migration is among them.  Look for news coming out of there as she probably brags about what Obama is going to do going forward.

Update!  Richard offers another $10 million USD on top of $3 billion we have already given for Syrian refugees.

4,000 Syrians are headed our way right now, with the total number in the coming years surely running into the tens of thousands.

Kentucky: Convicted Iraqi refugee terrorist wants chance to withdraw guilty plea

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 27, 2014

Longtime readers may remember the case of two Iraqi refugees resettled in Senator Rand Paul’s hometown of Bowling Green (see our extensive coverage of the diversity jungle created by resettlement contractors that is B.G. today by clicking here).

Mohanad Shareef Hammadi

We covered the arrest and trial of the Iraqi pair over the years (go here for an archive on the case).

Perhaps one of the most shocking revelations, and evidence of very shoddy processing of refugees, was the fact that at least one of the Iraqi’s fingerprints was found on fragments of an IED that killed American National Guard troops.

Here is the latest from Kentucky.com thanks to reader Robin:

— An Iraqi man convicted in a Kentucky terrorism case has asked a federal judge to give him access to his complete case file so he can try to withdraw his guilty plea.

U.S. District Judge Thomas B. Russell had not ruled on the request from 26-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi as of Friday morning.

Hammadi and 33-year-old Waad Ramadan Alwan pleaded guilty in 2010 and 2011 to taking part in a plot to ship thousands of dollars in cash, machine guns, rifles, grenades and shoulder-fired missiles from Bowling Green, Kentucky, to al-Qaida in Iraq in 2010 and 2011. The pair was working with an FBI informant who squelched their plans.

Alwan is serving a 40-year sentence and Hammadi are serving a life sentence at a maximum security prison in Florence, Colorado.

In a letter to his court-appointed attorney that was filed in the court record, Hammadi said he wanted to review the records to file motions to attack his guilty plea before the statute of limitations runs out.

By the way, I would love to see the US State Department made responsible for legal fees incurred by the refugees they let in to the country.  And, just imagine what this pair’s incarceration will cost the US taxpayer for the next forty plus years!  So much for refugees bringing economic benefits—these two imprisoned refugees will likely offset the small economic benefit of thousands and thousands of non-criminal refugees.

And, don’t forget, right now Iraqis are the top group of refugees we are resettling in your towns and cities, here.

For ambitious readers, we have a huge category on Iraqi refugees, here, with 635 previous posts!

Number of “Islamic extremists” grows in Germany

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 26, 2014

German Interior Minister, Hans-Georg Maassen. So if they know this, why take in the tens of thousands of Muslims being admitted to Germany right now?

And, gee I wonder out of what population they are springing?

See our two recent posts on Germany here and here about the country being swamped by Muslim migrants.

German authorities at least have the good sense to call them ‘Islamic extremists’ and not ‘violent extremists.’

From the Associated Press:

BERLIN (AP) — The number of Islamic extremists in Germany is growing rapidly, the head of the country’s domestic intelligence agency said Saturday.

The agency estimates that some 6,300 people in Germany are adherents of an ultraconservative strain of Islam known as Salafism, Hans-Georg Maassen told public broadcaster rbb-Inforadio. In Germany, all Salafis are considered Islamic extremists and on the radar of the security services, though other groups are also monitored if they are determined to be a threat to the state or democratic order.

Maassen said the number of Salafis could rise to 7,000 by the end of the year, compared to about 3,800 three years ago.

Interesting is that he uses the broad term ‘Salafis’ or Salafism instead of what the US authorities often do—tell us it is Al Qaeda, Al-Shabaab, ISIS etc. which only further distances the discussion from the root cause of Islamist violence—the ideology itself!

Let me say though that the greater threat to Germany, the US and the West generally (in my view) is the Muslim demographic time bomb— slower, but more deadly in the long-run than terrorists here or there.

Somali example of why federal ‘countering violent extremism’ theory is all wet (and dangerous)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 26, 2014

One of the country’s preeminent experts on the Islamist agenda in America, Patrick Poole, in a recent PJ Media post tells us why the federal “lone wolf” extremist concept is bogus and highlights a case he was personally familiar with involving Somali Dahir Gurey in Columbus, Ohio during the height of the Al-Shabaab recruitment of Somali refugees in America.

Poole: Feds are counting on the “good Islamists” to report on and counter the “bad Islamists.” Photo: http://theunitedwest.org/learning-center/security-briefing-overview/

For background see at least this post from 2008, here at RRW where you will see that the recruitment issue was covered fairly widely but never really broke into the national consciousness as has the recent ISIS recruitment in the US.

I think the final number of Somali refugees who joined Al-Shabaab, thumbing their noses at the good life in America you gave them, was in the 20s (or at least that is the number the feds actually found evidence of).

Here is Poole at PJ Media (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum).  ‘Lone Wolf,’ or ‘Known Wolf’? The Ongoing Counter-Terrorism Failure:

CVE (countering violent extremism) has been a colossal disaster because it has no roots in reality. It was always intended as a convenient fiction for politicians, bureaucrats, media and academics to avoid talking about the problem of the ideology that supports Islamic terrorism.

There has never once been a recorded case of anyone on the planet swearing their allegiance to the ideology of “violent extremism” and their willingness to kill others and die in the cause of “violent extremism.” It is a null set. There is nothing to counter, which is the whole point. And yet there are academics and institutions who are the beneficiaries of mountains of taxpayer cash to pursue the elusive CVE unicorn.

[....]

One crackpot theory has been that there are good Islamists that we can use against the bad Islamists. This was the keystone of the Obama administration’s Arab Spring policies. And this theory put into practice in Egypt, Libya, Syria and other places has left the Middle East in even worse shape than Obama found it.

Poole’s personal report from Columbus, Ohio about Somali refugee Dahir Gurey:

I’ve seen this “known wolf” problem work first-hand.

When the problem of terror recruitment amongst the U.S. Somali community by al-Shabaab became an issue in 2008 and 2009, there were reports in my hometown of Columbus, Ohio, which has the second largest Somali population in the country, that al-Shabaab operative Dahir Gurey was fundraising and recruiting for the terrorist group in the area. He later showed up in Minneapolis.

When we told the FBI about it, the response was that our information couldn’t be accurate, because if it were true they would have heard about it from their local Muslim outreach partners.

Fast forward 18 months: Dahir Gurey was killed in a firefight in Mogadishu operating as a senior al-Shabaab commander. As I reported at the time, local FBI officials had publicly said that there was no known terrorist recruitment in the Columbus area just a week before Gurey’s death. He was featured last year in a recent al-Shabaab recruitment video targeting American recruits. But it’s doubtful our FBI office subsequently asked their Muslim outreach “partners” about it.

Read it all.

In 2009 we attended a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing on the recruitment issue and were shocked at the naivety demonstrated by Senators Lieberman and Collins.

And for your information: We have admitted 9,000 Somalis to the US in FY2014 which ended on September 30th. 

That makes this year one of the ‘best’ years for Somalis since the Bush years of 2004, 2005 and 2006, here.

Update October 27th:  See also Columbus, Ohio mosques mushrooming, here.

Obama’s illegal alien “Dreamers” (cheaters!) are voting

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2014

Obama and Valerie meeting with “Dreamers” in the White House. Get out there and vote! http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2013/05/21/aspiring-americans-share-their-stories-congress-debates-immigration-reform

 

And, you can be sure that many LEGAL refugees, diversity visa lottery winners and temporary protected status holders among other “legal” immigrants are voting too.

The legal refugees and others have to wait five years before seeking citizenship, but you can be sure that anyone who barely speaks English (Somalis for example) who show up at the polls are not yet US citizens.

Get that drivers license and voting rights are assured.   Rarely do states follow-up and check the status of those who checked the YES box to the citizenship question when applying for a drivers license.

But, here in a story from Breitbart (hat tip: Julia) we see that someone is checking in North Carolina:

With the North Carolina U.S. Senate race in a dead heta, state election officials say they have discovered 145 names on the voting rolls who are ineligible to vote because they are illegal immigrants who have been granted President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.

According to a Winston-Salem Journal report, the State Board of Elections discovered the potential illegal voters Tuesday night when the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles ran a search for DACA licenses. The 145 DACA recipients whose names appear on the SBOE’s voting rolls will be sent letters requesting documentation that they are citizens, the report noted.

DACA beneficiaries in North Carolina are able to obtain drivers licenses, but they are not able to vote.

The Journal notes that it is likely more ineligible people may still remain on the voting rolls.

Nearly 10,000 names on the rolls are tagged by the DMV as “legally present,” according to elections and transportation officials. But that doesn’t mean that all 10,000 are ineligible to vote at this time. These are license holders who were not U.S. citizens when they got a license. They may have been green-card holders, foreign workers or foreign students, for example.

Most have become U.S. citizens since getting a license, according to an estimate by elections officials based on a sample of the overall list.

According to the report, earlier this month the SBOE officials did a sample cross-check of 1,600 of the 10,000 “legally present” names against a Department of Homeland Security database and found that 94 percent were U.S. citizens and eligible to vote. However, that still meant that six percent were ineligible, meaning if the ratio held for the whole 10,000, 600 people would be ineligible.

Mike Charbonneau, a DMV spokesman, told the Journal that it is now cross checking all the names.

Good for you North Carolina!  Every state should be vigorously pursuing the cheaters!

Denver refugee offspring (Somalis and Sudanese) caught in Germany trying to reach ISIS

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 22, 2014

Ho hum…. so what else is new!

This story is all over the news, so other than for me to acknowledge the latest case of refugees thumbing their noses at the good life in America (paid for by you, the taxpayer) and still wanting to join the Jihad, here is one version of the story from ABC.  If you see more detailed stories, send the link as a comment.

If you type ‘Somali missing youths’ into our search window, you will get upwards of 100 posts (going back as far as 2008) on this same topic—Somali refugees off to learn the Jihad trade.

Vermont refugee worker charged with embezzling from non-profit’s clients

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 22, 2014

Just a quick story in our favorite “welcoming” state of Vermont.  Clearly a former refugee herself, it’s alleged that Ms. Mbayu stole from other refugees.

If convicted Mbayu could get ten years in the slammer.

From the Burlington Free Press  (hat tip: Joanne):

A former caseworker at the Association of Africans Living in Vermont is facing a charge of embezzlement for pocketing $34,000 in tax refunds of two of her clients in recent years, Burlington Police said Friday.

Francine Mbayu, 43, of Burlington is due in Vermont Superior Court on Oct. 30 for arraignment on the felony embezzlement count, police said.

Detective Cpl. Michael Hemond said Mbayu diverted the tax refunds of the two victims between 2011 and 2014 into her bank account and illegally retained all or a portion of each refund.

I would love to dig into the financials for the Association of Africans Living in Vermont, but no time today. If you are a Vermonter reading this, remember it’s important to research the refugee organizations and operatives in your state (a message for readers in every state!).

See some of our recent posts on Vermont (the green card state!) which touts itself as a state welcoming diversity, but surprise! gets very few refugees.
