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.

Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains largely funded by government contracts

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 29, 2014

Since we are closely following the controversy in Wyoming (see our previous post), let’s have a look at who exactly has expressed an interest in being the federal government contractor wishing to do business and resettle clients in Wyoming—Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains (LFSRM) sometimes known as Lutheran Family Services Colorado.  (Why they need to operate under two names is beyond me!).

Rocky Mountain ‘Lutheran’ CEO Barclay makes just short of $200,000 in salary and benefits.

Let’s not tip our hand prematurely!

We first became aware of their role when it was learned that officials there were unhappy to be prematurely mentioned in publicity surrounding Wyoming Governor Mead’s proposed plan.  They wanted the plans for Wyoming to be kept secret from the general public until they were further along.

“The largest refugee resettlement agency in the Rocky Mountain region.” they have “offices located in Denver, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Greeley/Evans and Fort Morgan, CO and Albuquerque, NM, and services provided in Wyoming, Montana and Western Nebraska.”

Although they do other work for children and families, they had time to resettle a whopping 1,567 refugees in FY12-13.  Learn more here.

LFSRM is a subcontractor of the much larger Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services (LIRS) headquartered in Baltimore, MD.   Just the other day we noted that LIRS has taken down its reference to an office in Casper, WY:

Note that in this post we wrote in July, LIRS linked a Casper, Wyoming office (Gillette and Casper are two cities mentioned as possible resettlement sites).  However, if you go to LIRS website today the link has been erased.  Have they given up? Or, are they just laying low until the political storm blows over?

Could they possibly have already been bringing in those Somalis we wrote about here?

Funded almost entirely with taxpayer dollars!

Lutheran Family Services RM is not a privately-funded church group, it is a quasi-government agency which is 84% funded by tax dollars.

Let’s visit their most recently available Form 990 here.

Their gross revenue was $12,915,054

$10,812,318 comes from government contracts.

Although they don’t list grants they do list government contracts on page 9 (they took the word “government” out in this Form 990, but I checked previous ones to be sure in which they did categorize the majority of their income as from “government contracts.”).  LOL! I think these so-called ‘non-profits’ are increasingly sensitive and don’t want you to know how much they depend on tax dollars. This is a business not a charity!

When you visit that previous Form 990, check out the big jump Barclay’s salary took in just two years from 2010-2012!

CEO James Barclay makes a cool $199,330 in salary and benefits and 4 other top executives are in the 6-figure category including James Horan who runs their refugee branch. (page 8).  Barclay made $172,267 two years earlier.

Then here are some of their expenses (rounded numbers).  Without your cash they could not exist!

Nearly $5 million in salary, benefits and employment expenses were paid out.

Occupancy and other office expenses approached $900,000.

$259,000 went for travel expenses (what for just the Rocky Mountain region?).

$55,000 was spent for conferences.

And, they even spent $32,000 lobbying (for what?  more money from government?).

More on page 10.

In order to keep the government gravy train chugging along they have to bring in more and more refugees and likely they are running out of places for them in Colorado, thus their venture in Wyoming!

Every one of you concerned about refugee overload for your community must research who will benefit from more immigrants in your town or city because it is sad to say — this is all about money!  (and about changing the demographic makeup of your town).

Several years ago we followed the controversy (mostly in Colorado) about Somalis working at meatpacking plants and demanding special prayer times in the workplace.  Our entire category, entitled ‘Greeley/Swift Somali Controversy‘ should be useful for readers here.  I didn’t realize, at the time (or I don’t think I did), what the role of Lutheran Family Services Colorado was in all of this—they likely were the source of all the Somali workers for meat packing companies.  Adding insult to injury, Swift is a Brazilian owned company!

Wyoming citizen asks county health trustees to oppose refugee resettlement for the state

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 27, 2014

Why introduce the program to Wyoming when states with refugee resettlement are having problems?  That is the gist of what Michael Elmore, a representative of a citizens’ group, told Campbell County Health trustees last week.

What is in it for Wyoming?

Why talk to a hospital board?  Because county health departments/hospitals are on the front lines of taking care of newly arrived refugees with myriad health problems.

Just this morning I see a report from Philadelphia where Children’s Hospital is reporting on the Burmese refugees the hospital must clear of health problems at taxpayer expense (or is it at the expense of the hospital?):

The CHOP (Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia) Refugee Program works with three of the 3 resettlement agencies to care for Burmese children who come to Philadelphia within the first 30 to 60 days of their time in the U.S. CHOP physicians perform physicals, give immunizations and ensure the children will have no medical barriers to enrolling in school.

Regular readers know that we have been following the controversy in Wyoming for months.

In September of 2013, Republican governor Matt Mead wrote a letter to the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement expressing his intention of welcoming a resettlement program and thus making Wyoming the 50th state in the nation to invite in the UN, the US State Department, the US Dept. of Health and Human Services and a Lutheran resettlement contractor to change the demographic makeup of the state.

For new readers, see our entire archive on the Wyoming controversy, hereLutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains*** wanted to keep the plan a secret until it was further along.

The latest from the Gillette News Record:

 A representative for Citizens Protecting Wyoming, a group opposed to the state looking into adoption of a foreign refugee program, took his argument to the Campbell County Health trustees on Thursday.

During the public comment time, Gillette native Mike Elmore told trustees he hoped they would “share some of my sentiments on this” after he filled them in on the issue.

[....]

The U.S. Department of Health’s Refugee Resettlement Program “offers support for refugee victims seeking haven within the United States — including victims of human trafficking, those seeking asylum from persecution and survivors of tortures of war,” he said.

While it’s a nice idea, Elmore said the program is “a giant money-making machine using religious organizations, under the guise of federal contractors and a nonprofit organization.”

Six of the nine agencies that carry out the refugee resettlement work in the United States “like to paint themselves as faith-based charity organizations … affiliated with Catholics, Lutherans, Episcopal churches, along with two evangelical groups and one group even tied to reformed Judaism,” he said.

[....]

Elmore said these agencies rake in millions of dollars in federal grant money each year while pretending to be nonprofit organizations.

Because of that alleged corruption in the system, it’s impossible for state agencies to approach the issue of refugees in the proper way, he said.

Elmore said Mead wants to bring a federally funded program to the state, but that decision eventually will place more tax burden onto Wyoming citizens. It will also bring health impacts, such as the spread of diseases such as HIV, tuberculosis, hepatitis B and gonorrhea, he said.

Wyoming is the only state without a refugee program, but “49 states are in and 49 states have problems,” Elmore said, adding that he asks all members on the hospital board to write a letter to the governor asking him to not bring such a program to Wyoming.  [The Governor does not have the final say, thumbing their noses at states' rights, the feds and their contractors can just open up shop anyway.  However a lack of "welcome" from government officials will have a chilling effect on any plan.---ed]

***Lutheran Social Services is a subcontractor of Baltimore-based Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services (LIRS).  Note that in this post we wrote in July, LIRS linked a Casper, Wyoming office (Gillette and Casper are two cities mentioned as possible resettlement sites).  However, if you go to LIRS website today the link has been erased.  Have they given up? Or, are they just laying low until the political storm blows over?

Resettlement plans are very often being driven by federal contractors (like LIRS) looking for fresh territory.

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!

Columbus, Ohio mosques mushrooming thanks to refugee population growth

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 27, 2014

Abubakar Asiddiq Islamic Center. When you look around for more photos, there were building plans for this mosque that included a gold dome and minarets, wonder where they are? Photo: Columbus Dispatch

Related (update): More mosque problems in Boston, here.

Yesterday we mentioned Columbus as it relates to Somali Islamists recruiting jihadists in Columbus, here.

Demographics! Demographics! Demographics!

And, today I see that Columbus saw another grand opening of a mosque on Saturday to accommodate the growing Muslim population there of mostly Somalis, Iraqis and other Arabs (secondary migrants) who the article in the Columbus Dispatch actually says are moving to Columbus because of the mosques.

Read the article about the mosques here .  And, then any of you Ohioans who want to dig down into the Refugee Resettlement program of the US State Department should visit Ohio Refugees Services in the Ohio Dept. of Job and Family Services.

Get to know the resettlement agencies (contractors) which include at least three of the big nine:  World Relief (Evangelicals), Catholic Charities (USCCB) and subcontractors for the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society.  They are every year bringing more Muslim refugees to Columbus.

And, I was interested to see that Ohio has a published Refugee Resettlement Plan.

I can’t emphasize enough the importance of pulling the facts together wherever you live.

We have a lot on Ohio, click here to learn more.

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.

Could non-citizen voters (Somalis?) swing close races? Yes, says WaPo

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 25, 2014

Non-citizen Somali voters may have made the difference for funny-man Al Franken in 2008.

On Thursday we reported that some of Obama’s illegal alien “Dreamers” are voting.

And, I should mention that I’ve been asked several time recently if I thought illegal aliens or more importantly legal immigrants, like refugees, are voting before they have even gained citizenship and I’ve said:  Of course they are!  They simply check ‘yes’ to the citizenship question when they get a drivers license and they are good to go because no one ever cross-checks.

This Washington Post story (can we believe our eyes that this is in the WaPo?) confirms what we have only surmised (hat tip: Paul).  You can read the whole thing yourself but the section that interested me most was the one on the Minnesota Al Franken victory which we reported on extensively in 2008 (here is one of several posts we wrote at the time) may well have been decided with the help of Somali illegal voters.

From the Washington Post (although they don’t use the ‘S’ word!):

Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin.

Yup!

In Berlin, “Ich heisse Mohammed”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 25, 2014

Invasion of Europe continues…..

Syrian refugee Mohammed (another Mohammed) with child in makeshift shelter in unused Berlin school. http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/afp/2014/10/syria-unrest-germany-refugees-aid.html#

Yesterday we told you about Munich (Bavaria) in the south of Germany and today there is news about ‘refugee’-swamped Berlin.

This news from The News gives a good description of how a Syrian family paid a human trafficker to get them across the Mediterranean to Sicily and from there made their way northward to Germany.

Remember the EU has a law that says asylum seekers must apply in the first country they get to in Europe, but obviously flaunting any EU laws, many sneak out of Italy or Malta or Greece and move on to the more “welcoming” countries of Germany or Sweden.

BERLIN: Syrian refugees are bedding down in the converted classrooms of a former Berlin high school as Germany grapples with being Europe’s number-one destination for asylum seekers.

Among the newcomers is Mohammed Nabil, 28, who after a perilous land and sea journey now shares a small and immaculate if improvised bedroom with his mother, brother and sister in a working class district of the German capital.

[....]

Germany this year expects some 200,000 asylum seekers to cross its borders — or nearly 60 percent more than in 2013 when numbers had already soared by almost two-thirds.  [When Mark Steyn wrote America Alone (2006) before the Syrian conflict, I suspect even he didn't see how fast his prediction would come true.  You can be sure that the Syrians will never be asked to leave Germany---ed]

The leading country of origin is Syria, where over three years of bloody fighting have driven more than two million people to flee, mostly to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq.

[....]

Germany, Europe’s most populous country, received more than 20,000 applications for political asylum from Syrians between January and August, a 186-percent leap from a year earlier.

[....]

Once in Sicily, the family decided to press on for Germany, where they arrived just over two months ago. They spent their first night in Berlin in a park, then went to a police station to ask for help.

Nabil now spends his time working on his German language skills, writing out in a large exercise book phrases such as “Wie heisst Du?” (What’s your name?) and “Ich heisse Mohammed” (My name is Mohammed).

See our complete ‘invasion of Europe’ archive by clicking here.  Type ‘Germany’ or ‘Sweden’ into our search function for extensive archives on those two countries as well.

By the way, if you haven’t read Mark Steyn’s America Alone pick it up and get Al-Hijra, the Islamic Doctrine of Immigration while you are at it.

Bye Bye Bavaria (swamped with needy Middle Eastern migrants)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 24, 2014

Earlier this month refugees block a street in Munich demanding better housing. Some were laying in the street. http://www.thelocal.de/20141010/munich-refugees-put-up-in-oktoberfest-tents-bavaria-asylum-seekers

 

More in our ‘invasion of Europe’ series…..

Germany has open its doors to tens of thousands of refugees from the Middle East and Africa (trying ever-so-hard to look like good people), but is now reaping the whirlwind as they run out of space to house them and resort to Oktoberfest beer hall tents in King Ludwig’s Bavaria.

From the UK Telegraph:

Bavaria has been overwhelmed by an unexpected flood of refugees with as many as 300 a day arriving in Munich, many of them fleeing the violence in Iraq and Syria.

The accommodation shortage in the city is so severe that authorities have considered using one of the vast tents left over from the Oktoberfest beer festival to house refugees.

Families are being put in makeshift shelters ranging from a former table-dancing bar to the Munich Olympic stadium. But with many currently in tents and the Bavarian winter looming, authorities are warning that they need proper accommodation as quickly as possible.
Munich’s main refugee centre at Bayernkaserne, a former military facility, has become so overcrowded that it has been forced to shut its gates to new arrivals. Designed for 1,200 people, it is currently housing twice that number.

After the centre closed, new arrivals began camping in the open outside the gates. Shuttle buses are now picking up refugees outside the Munich centre and taking them to temporary accommodation in other cities.

[....]

Bavaria has been particularly badly hit because Munich lies on two of the most popular refugee routes into Europe, via Italy and the Balkans.

See our growing archive on Germany.  Ever wanted to visit Germany? go now before it’s too late.  With a foothold in Germany, these “refugees” will never leave.  I see no way out for Germany, do you?

Holy smokes! Indiana DEMOCRATIC Congressional candidate: No Syrian refugees for Indiana; take care of our people first!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2014

I think we are seeing a major trend developing where it seems that Democrats are more willing to say NO! to refugees while some Republicans fear mentioning the word, or as in the case of Grover Norquist and his Republican pals are actually pushing for more refugees in America!

Democratic candidate Justin Kuhnle: Take care of our people first! Photo: http://teapartycheer.com/bios/midwest/indiana/justin-kuhnle-in-bio/

Just yesterday we posted the World Net Daily story about mayors across the country questioning refugee resettlement and most of the mayors with guts are Democrats also, go figure!

From the News-Sentinel reporting on a Congressional candidate debate for the 3rd District of Indiana:

In a follow-up question [about Syria---ed] Kuhnle was asked, given northeast Indiana’s welcome of refugees in the past, should we welcome Syrian refugees here as well.

Kuhnle, who has some background in social work gave a surprising answer for a Democratic candidate.

“I would be hard pressed to accept that.” he said, adding “When we look at the needs of what northern Indiana has it can’t continue that open door policy. We must look to the need of our own citizens first.

Kuhnle suggested it would be better to help them, in Syria.

This Congressional district in Indiana includes Ft. Wayne so that helps explain the answer.  We have an extensive archive on Ft. Wayne going back for seven years—the US State Department and its contractors have swamped the city with needy Burmese refugees.

Remember the 2010 spitting and urinating in the laundromat brouhaha.  People remember stuff like that!

What do you bet Kuhnle gets a visit from “Welcoming America” for a little mind-readjustment!
