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?

Climate marchers anxiety over ‘refugee’ definition continues

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 21, 2014

As the great big ginormous huge climate march gets underway in NYC today, there is an underlying anxiety about what to call those millions of migrants who marchers claim will be displaced as the ice caps melt and oceans rise and gobble up all the land and homes and send the people running for their lives.

Climate refugees coming to a town near you? I love this illustration! It comes from Diplo (http://www.diplomacy.edu/blog/climate-refugees-new-concept-move)

We have followed the controversy on and off over the years (see our climate refugees category), but the gist of it is:  will these new migrant hordes (the Left is predicting) be refugees in the full sense of the word and thus be eligible to be treated on par with refugees fleeing marauding Muslims like ISIS and be “welcomed” into the West (to be taken care of by taxpayers)?

The word “refugee” is a powerful word in the PR world:

To put it bluntly, those who are helping the “humanitarian” refugees (as originally defined by the UN Refugee Convention) are reluctant to let the “climate refugee” agitators dilute the PR message and horn in on their lucrative territory.

And, the climate justice people are loath to get into a battle with their fellow Leftists, thus the wrangling continues.

Here is the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights expounding on the topic:

As you know, NNIRR has been striving to make the connections between climate change, migration and human rights. It is an intersection that is finally beginning to emerge in more popular discussions in the broad climate change movement, although understandings are still uneven and often uninformed. There is even an important question of “definition”, as we note in the attached fact sheet:

There is a growing, unresolved debate on defining “climate migrant” or “climate/environmental refugee“:

~Some argue that there is a need to define a new class of climate refugees who have been forcibly displaced by the effects of climate change and that they be given special protections and status (such as refugee status under the Refugee Convention) and even redress for this injustice.

~Others suggest that defining a special class of climate refugees would create a hierarchy of immigrants, and would split and differentiate climate refugees from economic refugees, who are all affected by the same global economic and political system.

The issue has been emerging for a number of years on the international level, and has become part of the global program of advocacy work that NNIRR and partners are involved in under the broad umbrella of “migrants in crisis.”

14 million refugees in the Middle East: utter disaster

Posted by Judy K. Warner on September 9, 2014

The brilliant and knowledgeable David P. Goldman writes in PJ Media:

There are always lunatics lurking in the crevices of Muslim politics prepared to proclaim a new Caliphate; there isn’t always a recruiting pool in the form of nearly 14 million displaced people (11 million Syrians, or half the country’s population, and 2.8 million Iraqis, or a tenth of the country’s population)….Many of them will have nothing to go back to. When people have nothing to lose, they fight to the death and inflict horrors on others. That is what civilizational decline looks like in real time.

Goldman has been predicting this kind of disaster in the Middle East for years.  He also writes under the pen name of Spengler after Oswald Spengler, a German historian who is best known for his book, Decline of the West.  Goldman continues:

The Arab states are failed states, except for the few with enough hydrocarbons to subsidize every facet of economic life. Egypt lives on a$15 billion annual subsidy from the Gulf states, and if that persists, will remain stable if not quite prosperous. Syria is a ruin, along with large parts of Iraq. The lives of tens of millions of people were fragile before the fighting broke out (30% of Syrians lived on less than $1.60 a day), and now they are utterly ruined. The hordes of combatants displace more people, and these join the hordes, in a snowball effect. That’s what drove the 30 Years War of 1618-1648, and that’s what’s driving the war in the Levant.

There’s a lot to be said about what we should do about ISIS and the other terrorist groups militarily, and it is being said. Here at RRW I’m wondering whether the State Department thinks 14 million refugees with nothing to go back to, rootless and dispossessed and many filled with a destructive rage beyond our comprehension, are our responsibility, a great pool of potential United States citizens.  I’m wondering if the resettlement agencies see a potential windfall and meat packers see cheap labor without end.  God help us if so. Ann has written extensively about Syrian refugees and the pressures on other countries to take them. I’m sorry, but you can’t place 11 million Syrians and 3 million Iraquis in western countries.

If there were anyone in the government looking after America’s interests, we would recognize that this catastrophe is not something we can fix.  If we’re going to help, we should be looking only to Christians and other selected religious minorities.  I wish we had the will and the strength to find them a piece of land of their own over there, but that’s a fantasy.  Goldman writes:

When I wrote in 2011 that Islam was dying, this was precisely what I forecast. You can’t unscramble this egg. The international organizations, Bill Clinton, George Soros and other people of that ilk will draw up plans, propose funding, hold conferences and publish studies, to no avail. The raw despair of millions of people ripped out of the cocoon of traditional society, bereft of ties of kinship and custom, will feed the meatgrinder. Terrorist organizations that were hitherto less flamboyant (“moderate” is a misdesignation), e.g. the Muslim Brotherhood (and its Palestine branch Hamas) will compete with the Caliphate for the loyalties of enraged young people. The delusion about Muslim democracy that afflicted utopians of both parties is now inoperative. War will end when the pool of prospective fighters has been exhausted.

Senators urge extension of (sham) Temporary Protected Status for Liberians

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 21, 2014

Demonstrating once again what a sham Temporary Protected Status is, Senators want Obama to extend temporary refugee status to Liberians who have been here “temporarily” since the late 1980’s!   Seems to me that the civil war in Liberia is over and this “LEGAL” status for those here originally illegally should just end.

There must be one hell-uv-a lot of Liberians in Rhode Island because I saw Senator Jack Reed spearheading this same effort several years ago.  Here he is joined by the usual Senate Open Borders gang.

Senators Jack Reed and Elizabeth Warren, working for the middle class (must be middle class immigrants!).

Check out here what other countries enjoy this “temporary” protection.  Liberia is in the Deferred Enforced Departure category.   Reed’s press release and letter to the White House on Friday are here.

From Political News:

WASHINGTON, DC – In an effort to preserve the status of Liberians living legally in the United States, U.S. Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) led a letter signed by fourteen of his colleagues to President Obama urging an extension of Deferred Enforced Departure (DED). The current DED extension is set to expire on September 30, 2014, which could cause Liberians living here legally on temporary status to be deported.

The usual suspects, but where is his pal Elizabeth Warren?  Come to think of it, why isn’t Warren here?

Senators joining Reed in sending the letter include: Charles Schumer (D-NY), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Chris Coons (D-DE), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Ben Cardin (D-MD), Cory Booker (D-NJ), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Al Franken (D-MN), Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).

[....]

Since 1991, Liberians have relied on short-term provisions of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) or DED from Presidents of both political parties to extend their legal right to remain in the United States. These individuals, many of whom have been in the United States since fleeing Liberia in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, have retained a legal status that allows them to live, work, and pay taxes in the United States.

Reed and the Liberians were expecting that “comprehensive immigration reform” would resolve their problem with its blanket amnesty.

The senators wrote: “the current system of short-term DED renewals leaves Liberians and their families with perennial uncertainty about whether they will be able to remain members of the communities they have come to call home. For this reason, while we urge you to grant a lengthy extension of at least two years and to make this announcement well in advance of the current DED expiration, we continue to call for comprehensive immigration reform that includes an adjustment to permanent resident status for qualifying Liberians and their families.”

The next time you hear one of your friends say:  “Legal immigration is o.k., it is illegal that I object to” remember TPS and pop them one (gently!).  Yes, it is legal (forever)Once granted a temporary stay in America, they never go home.  Check out that list again—it includes Syrians now.

Buffalo non-profit running out of federal/local $$$ may close its doors

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 4, 2014

Not all supposed refugee resettlement agencies are in the orbit of the nine major federal contractors that monopolize refugee placement in America or they wouldn’t be running out of money.

Close-reading of this article tells us that Vive Inc. in Buffalo, NY is taking care of asylum seekers and other migrants who are in legal limbo.  They haven’t been contracted by the feds and therefore they can’t raise enough cash to stay in the black.

This is an important point:  there would be a smaller number of migrants arriving in the US if they had to depend on private charity and/or finding work.  Your tax dollars grease the skids of the migrant flow into the US.

From Buffalo News  (Hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

Vive Inc. Executive Director Angela Jordan-Mosely running out of money. Photo: http://www.buffalonews.com/life-arts/people-talk/people-talk-angela-jordan-mosely-20140330

The refugee resettlement organization Vive Inc. is contacting past and present supporters with an urgent plea for help. If financial support is not forthcoming, the message says, outlook is bleak. “We are facing the harsh reality of closing our doors,” the message states.

An email from Vive Executive Director Angela Jordan-Mosely this week describes the situation at the nonprofit as “desperate.” Vive celebrated 30 years of operation in March, but recent years have seen funding cuts by the county and federal government. The losses are compounded by delays in legal proceedings to get the immigrants Vive serves permanently settled.

“What used to take days now takes months or even years, leaving hundreds of refugees in limbo,” Jorden-Mosely writes.

The result is a significant increase in the length of time individuals and families stay with Vive at its Wyoming Avenue location and a need for the organization to reconsider how it can achieve its mission of helping international refugees build new lives.

Former Amherst Council Member Shelly Schratz, a Vive volunteer, said that the uncertain status makes it hard for the refugees to contribute to their own support.

“Many of these people want to work, but there are matters of transportation and language, and they don’t have a Social Security card yet,” Schratz said. “We have a business (Bing’s restaurant), but you can’t hire someone who isn’t legal yet.”

Schratz said that, in trying to get financial support, Vive may be hampered by misunderstandings about its clients. The refugees it serves arrived in the United States legally, often having received asylum or temporary residency while they work on permanent status in this country or Canada. Most live at Vive while their cases work through the legal system.

Asylum seekers, of course, have gotten into the US through various means—either as illegal aliens who came across our borders by land, sea or air, or came in on a visa of some sort and have over-stayed.  Once granted asylum they can work and all of the welfare goodies other ‘refugees’ get are available to them.   Others that Vive serves are aliens on Temporary Protected Status who are planning on staying no matter what.  These are not ‘refugees’ the US State Department has brought in to the US.

Vive Inc. got its start in illegal Sanctuary Movement

Check out Vive Inc’s history, here.  Originally called Vive La Casa, it sure looks like they got their start in the Sanctuary Movement in the early 1980’s  (at the same time the notorious CASA de Maryland got its start) where Leftwing churches helped illegal Central Americans, including Sandinistas, get into the US and hid them in their “sanctuaries.”   I guess Buffalo’s Casa didn’t get as firmly entrenched with the politicians who dole out the cashola as did CASA de Maryland.

Save Wyoming for refugees from Jupiter!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 25, 2014

Because we have to laugh sometimes!

Apparently this is for real, Wyoming is “welcoming” refugees from Jupiter.

 

From Atlas Obscura:

While it might not be as fancy or futuristic as the name would imply, the Greater Green River Intergalactic Spaceport was christened to invite refugees from Jupiter who may have been fleeing a global catastrophe.

Consisting of little more than a dirt landing strip marked by a raggedy windsock, the “spaceport” in the northern part of Green River has been courting alien visitors since the mid-90’s. In 1994, NASA learned that Jupiter was in some danger of being hit by a number of errant fragments of the Shoemaker-Levy 9 Comet. The impacts were of great interest to the scientific community, but since the gas giant has never been thought to harbor intelligent life, the disaster seemed to be mostly academic. However a lack of evidence did not deter the city planners of Green River, Wyoming, who embraced America’s heritage as a refuge for the poor and huddled masses by making ready for any potential Jovian refugees.

Realizing that there would be nowhere for homeless aliens to land, the city officially renamed their small, 5,000 foot landing strip the “Greater Green River Intergalactic Spaceport.” Of course this change was not without opposition by residents who noted the already existing housing shortage and extant issue of terrestrial immigration.

There is a bit more at Atlas Obscura—-the leading guide for wondrous and curious places on earth.

I assume the governor, the Lutherans and the US State Department/ORR will be factoring this information into their refugee plan.

US resettles 75,000 Bhutanese refugees since 2007; State Department goes back on its word

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 13, 2014

In 2007, then Asst. Secretary of State for Population Refugees and Migration, Ellen Saurbrey, said the US had agreed to take 60,000 of the 100,000 Bhutanese (really Nepali) refugees living in camps in Nepal over a five year period.  Here we are, going on 7 years, and we have now taken in 75,000 with more on the way!

Sauerbrey: 60,000 over five years.

You can read all about why we decided it was our duty (here) to do this when we had no national interest in it—other than that the UN told us to do it!  And, surely US companies, looking for cheap legal labor, were egging the Bush administration on, while the human rights industrial complex agitators cheered.  In fairness, we can’t blame Sauerbrey for what the subsequent Obama State Department is doing.

But, pay attention because they will do this (lie) about the Syrians as well

Once the US State Department begins the process with its resettlement contractors, the numbers will balloon way beyond what they promised in the first place.  Remember the contractors are paid by the head to resettle refugees in your cities and town.  They are always out scouting for a fresh supply!

Other countries were supposed to help, but as is the usual case, the lion’s share falls on the US.

From the International Organization for Migration (also a US contractor):

Nepal – The United States this week resettled its 75,000th Bhutanese refugee from eastern Nepal. Tilak Chand Ghimire, 44, his wife, 12-year-old daughter and 75-year-old parents, will start new lives in Akron, Ohio, where his brother resettled in 2010.

The move brings the total number of Bhutanese refugees resettled from Nepal since 2007 by IOM, in close cooperation with the Nepali government, the embassies of resettlement countries and UNHCR, to 88,770.

Get it!  We took 75,000 of the 88,770 resettled so far!

All subsequent negotiations to allow them to return to Bhutan failed and almost the whole 107,000 caseload are expected to eventually be resettled in third countries, notably the US.

We have an extensive archive on Bhutanese refugees going back to our first year writing RRW, click here to learn more.  You will see in the early posts that a large number of the Bhutanese/Nepalese camp dwellers DID NOT want to be resettled in third countries.

Burmese refugees struggling in Iowa

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 9, 2014

The thing that amazes me most about articles like this one, about how there aren’t enough ‘resources’ for the large numbers of refugees arriving in ‘welcoming’ cities and states, is that NO ONE ever says, maybe we should slow the flow into the US until such time that we can afford them!

Paw Moo Htoo (Mom in the photo) has been in America seven months….Htoo says her case worker only showed her how to turn on the lights and oven, but said nothing about enrolling her kids in school. So at first, they didn’t go.

 

There is so much in this report from the Des Moines Register by Rehka Basu (Hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’) that I didn’t know where to begin snipping it.  So please be sure to read the whole article!  Emphasis below is mine:

On the Monday after standard time went into effect, Lee Mo’s children missed school. The Burmese refugee family knew the American ritual of moving clocks forward and back, but they didn’t know on which dates that happened, so the school bus left without them.

Even if she had known the date, Mo couldn’t read a calendar. For much of her five years here, she has had to estimate time based on the position of the sun. She doesn’t know her age. She can’t make a phone call. Like about half of the people in Iowa who speak her native Karenni, she can’t read in any language. Neither she nor her husband went to school.  [We have admitted tens of thousands of Burmese like this family!---ed]

An estimated 6,000 Burmese are in Iowa and some say life was easier in the camp!

Since 2006, refugees from Burma have been turning up in Iowa, becoming its largest incoming refugee group.

There are an estimated 6,000 refugees from Burma who are here, divided about evenly between three main language groups (though there are dozens of less-spoken languages), according to Henny Ohr, executive director of EMBARC, a new Des Moines nonprofit to help them. The Iowa Bureau of Refugee Services counts 1,667 refugees from Burma in Iowa, but that doesn’t include secondary migration from other cities. Yet Ohr says no Karenni speaker in Iowa is fluent in English.

For all of the deprivations in the refugee camps — houses of bamboo and leaves, lit only by candlelight; dug pits for toilets; no electricity or running water; no health care or police to fight crime — Mo says that life was easier. At least she knew how to navigate it.

In the “old days” resettlement contractors used private money and volunteer help to go beyond what their government dole paid for, today they don’t!

Refugee resettlement core services from the U.S. State Department were always limited to 90 days, and there is a one-time per capita grant of $1,800, of which $700 can go to agency staff for management, says John Wilken, chief of the Bureau of Refugee Services in the Iowa Department of Human Services. But in the past, income-eligible single people or couples without young children could also get cash assistance and medical care for five years. That was cut back to eight months.

“In the old days, agencies doing resettlement often went beyond 90 days, I presume because they had private dollars or volunteers,” said Wilken. “As the landscape has changed and resettlement has become more costly, resettlement agencies have had to limit their services to exactly what they’re getting paid for.”

Take note Wyoming, state taxpayers help foot the bill.

Low-income refugees with children get welfare benefits under Iowa’s Family Investment Program, with a lifetime cap of five years. The Bureau of Refugee Services uses federal funds for refugees here less than two years to pay for employment-related services primarily. The bulk of that $550,000 last year paid for bureau staff, job transportation and telephone interpretation services. Language instruction was limited to “self-learning” on computers using Rosetta Stone programs. The bureau has no Karenni-speaking employees.

There are other federal grants, including some to prepare elderly refugees for citizenship, or targeted to Des Moines Public School children, and partnerships with Lutheran Services of Iowa, Catholic Charities and the Des Moines chapter of the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants. But as Wilken says, “All of us would say there’s a pretty substantial gap in comprehensive case management.”

Secondary migrants arriving for meatpacking jobs!  (Immigrant cheap labor!)  Meatpackers make money, while taxpayers subsidize the lives of these legal laborers.

And when families are resettled in Iowa from other states — for meatpacking jobs or because relatives are here — the 90 days of assistance won’t follow them, and the Bureau of Refugee Services won’t help. Wilken said it didn’t compete for such funds; the Committee for Refugees and Immigrants administers them. Yet secondary migrants are the biggest group of refugees from Burma.

Just a reminder, Bill Clinton began the flow of refugees to Iowa for his meatpacking buddies, here.

Ohr calls it a crisis.

It is a crisis alright, but one not to be solved by throwing more taxpayer dollars to contractors!  Let’s bring fewer refugees!

My favorite refugees, German homeschoolers, get asylum

Posted by Judy K. Warner on March 13, 2014

Uwe and Hannelore Romeike and their children left their native Germany in 2008, fleeing persecution by the government because they wanted to homeschool their children.   Lynda Altman reports in the Examiner

The family applied for asylum based on religious persecution. Asylum was granted. However, the Obama administration overturned that decision and the Romeike family faced deportation.

HSLDA stepped in and fought the deportation. They lost the battle at every turn. Even when Glenn Beck stepped in with a sizable donation, the family still could not catch a break in court. Then, a petition was filed with thousands of signatures requesting that the U.S. Government answer a final request. On that, the family won.

The Romeike family. Six and counting.

The U.S. Supreme Court was supposed to hear the case on Monday, March 3, 2014. Instead of hearing the case, the court decided against it. That left the Romeike family with no more options. They were out of time and legal recourse. It looked like deportation was inevitable.

After public outcry, the Department of Homeland Security gave the Romeike family permission to remain in the United States. This happened on Tuesday, March 4, 2014.

Blogger Ben Swann has these further details (as well as some details about what happened to them in Germany):

The Romeike’s received help from the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA). The HSLDA requested a rehearing with the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. The request was denied. The case caught the attention of the homeschooling community, as well as a number of Christian groups. An online petition asking President Obama to grant the family asylum was signed by more than 127,000 people. Eventually the Romeike’s and the HSLDA decided to request a hearing with the Supreme Court.

Michael Farris, founder of the HSLDA, commented, “The Attorney General and Sixth Circuit are ignoring critical evidence and are trying to send back this family who is trying to stay in our country legally. We are hopeful that the Supreme Court will go the other way and see what the original immigration judge saw: that this family and other religious homeschoolers in Germany are being persecuted for what they believe is the right way to raise their children.”

Both writers give the petition and public outcry credit for the outcome.  I wonder; I’ve never heard of a petition to the federal government having any effect.  It’s great if that’s true.  I do remember that more than 20 years ago Rep. George Miller of California introduced a bill in Congress that homeschoolers interpreted as threatening to their right to educate their children.  (I should say “we homeschoolers” as I was one at the time.)  They jammed the Capitol switchboard — it was reported to be the most calls ever — and the bill was withdrawn.  Today there are many more homeschoolers.

I posted on the case here in 2010 and Ann posted here in 2013 when the Romeikes were denied asylum.  Note that they were initially granted asylum and then that was overturned at the federal level.  We can imagine how much the Obama administration would love a Christian family educating its children outside the state’s control. (Not!)  I’d love to know the inside story of the judicial and government actions in this case.

As Ann commented in her post when the Romeikes lost their asylum case: We will take Chechens, Somalis and Rohingya Muslims, but not persecuted Christians from Germany who pose no threat to America.  Go figure!

Addendum: Here a great piece by Michael Farris, Dangerous Policy Lurks behind Romeike Triumph.  I don’t have time to write about it, but if you are interested in homeschooling, parental rights, religious freedom, or oppressive government, there’s a lot here for you.

Is Putin making up a refugee ‘crisis’ in Ukraine?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 6, 2014

Putin must save the Ukrainian refugees!

Russian news outlets have been reporting that there are hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians who have sought asylum in Russia over the last two months.

They say 140,000 have crossed the border into mother Russia for protection in the last two weeks.

Russian President Putin sure does know how “refugees” on the move can ring the medias’ bells.  He knows the drill!  Just follow the news on Syrian refugees to know what I mean!

But, it seems not to be working this time.

Here is the story from the Huffington Post:

News stories emanating from Russian state media this past week raise a serious question. Is Russia creating a fake refugee crisis in the Ukraine to justify its military intervention in the region?

No one has actually seen the refugees.  Read it all.  I have no time for more this morning.
