Malta writer: no “illegal” migrants just “irregular” ones, and you are a racist if you don’t see that

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 12, 2014

This is your standard Leftist diatribe against anyone who dares question the wisdom of giving asylum to anyone in the world who reaches any country’s border.  I’m just mentioning it for two reasons—-one to show how they manipulate the language. “Irregular” migrants (funny! Ha! Ha!), and secondly because we have been a long-time observer of poor little Malta as a doorway (doormat!) to Europe (and America) for thousands of mostly Muslim ILLEGAL aliens coming from North Africa.

Assuming there isn’t more than one Alison Bezzina in Malta, she won an American prize for humorous writing in 2011—“Dr. Smith at your cervix.” http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles/view/20111021/life-features/timesofmalta-com-blogger-finalist-in-humour-writing-contest.390125

If you want to catch up on Malta, see our extensive archive here where you will see posts about how the US State Department is scooping up some of the illegals and bringing them to your towns and cities.

Here is Alison Bezzina at the Malta Independent apparently in response to some facebook postings that got rather strident.

I am totally convinced that people who comment so cruelly and negatively have never met anyone in Semihar’s [Eritrean mother of three who arrived illegally in Malta—ed] situation, at least not in person. To me, they are racists devoid of emotion, compassion or empathy. Sadly, most justify their racism and hatred by saying that they are not particularly against Africans but against people who enter the country illegally.

Conveniently, they fail to understand that asylum seekers and refugees such as Semihar are not in Malta illegally. They enter the country irregularly (not illegally) because they have no other way of doing so, but then, once they are recognised as genuine asylum seekers (and most are) they have as much right to be in Malta as you and I. Once they are out of detention, they are even given a Maltese ID card and are legally allowed to work because, shock horror, it is their right!  [Hey, here is a thought, maybe Alison could take Semihar and the kids to her home!—ed]

She rambles on and says a political candidate wasn’t raised to be a “decent” man by his parents, then makes some analogy to the Berlin Wall that isn’t immediately clear to me, and wraps up saying that the recent decision by the European Court of Human Rights (we posted here) could backfire and incentivize countries like Malta and Italy to let ‘asylum seekers’ move on to the interior of Europe.  With that last point I agree.  Malta and Italy are swamped already—thank the Court of Human Rights and open those detention centers and let them move on.  Germany might actually put them up in a 4-star hotel.

By the way, people like Ms. Bezzina think they can just throw the word “racist” around and everyone will run for cover.  It doesn’t work anymore!

Our complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ series is here.

And, just fyi we have had a lot of readers from Malta over the years.

CAIR publishes list of American “Islamophobes”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 8, 2014

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is listed on their website in the right hand column, but absent from the list in larger print. http://www.islamophobia.org/islamophobic-individuals.html

Apparently the list prepared by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was updated just before the elections this week.  It includes some big names, but some regular grassroots activists are honored as well.

I know a lot of people who wish they had made it.  (See our post yesterday of ‘friends of CAIR’ who lost elections).  Maybe there should be a bumper sticker—Proud Islamophobe on board!

Did any of your friends make the Islamophobe list?

Be sure to check out the comment they ascribe to Phyllis Schlafly about immigration, welfare and Muslim polygamy.

I’m posting the whole list here in case it disappears.

From CAIR’s website (spelling errors are CAIR’s):

Entries on this page are alphabetized by first name. Below the individual’s name are the organizations with which the individual is associated. The first organization listed is that with which the individual appears most closely identified in public. Other organizations to which the indivudual is connected are then listed in alphabetical order. Where there is no organization listed the individual is either independent or the group the individual is most closely identified in public is not degisnated as Islamophobic.

Brits take a beating from “rights” group over decision to not fund rescue of migrant invaders from North Africa

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 1, 2014

Kate Allen, UK Director of Amnesty International: “….dark day for the moral standing of the UK.” Photo: http://www.amnesty.org.uk/blogs/kate-allen

The UK attempts to slow invasion of Europe….

(See our entire ‘invasion of Europe’ series including posts on the boat people problem by clicking here.  Thousands of mostly Muslim aliens have been rescued by the Italian navy and then sneak out of Italy and spread throughout Europe.)

We reported the incredible news from brave Brits the other day—the UK does not want to participate in the rescue of illegal aliens who find themselves in trouble while attempting to break into Europe by sea.  They say that such efforts serve as a “pull factor” for more and more aliens to try to make the dangerous voyage.

But, they surely will be taking a drubbing from the ‘human rights industrial complex’ as we see just beginning here at the news site for the UNHCR:

Thousands more refugees are at risk of perishing in the Mediterranean, human rights groups have warned, as Italy cancels its emergency naval rescue operation.

Rome’s Mare Nostrum mission, which saved 150,000 people fleeing poverty and warzones in Africa in the past 12 months, will be wound down, its budget slashed by two thirds in the two-month phase-out period.

Instead, Europe’s border protection agency, Frontex, launches its Triton operation to help monitor and patrol the waters off the Italian coastline, with resources of just €3m a month – a third of what the Italian navy has been spending in the past year.

“No matter how it is dressed up, Triton is not a search and rescue operation,” said Nicolas Beger of Amnesty International’s European Institutions Office. “As the world faces the worst refugee crisis since the Second World War, the EU must urgently and collectively… plug the imminent gap in these life-saving operations.”

Britain’s refusal to contribute to the scaled-down replacement operation was also decried. “This is a very dark day for the moral standing of the UK,” said Amnesty UK Director Kate Allen. “The Italian navy’s… operation has saved thousands of lives and other European countries should now be stepping up to share that responsibility with them, not shirk it.”

US State Department’s Anne Richard in Berlin: We have 5,000 Syrians in the pipeline to America

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 31, 2014

The Obama Administration has been dancing around the issue of how many Syrians are on the way to your towns and cities and I suspect that is because they don’t need one more thing before Tuesday to rock the Democrats’ boat.

Asst. Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration Richard: 5,000 Syrians are being processed to arrive in the US soon (Not enough to satisfy the UN however).

Anne C. Richard is the Assistant Secretary of State who represented the US this week in Berlin, Germany where a confab was held to discuss what the heck the (western) world is going to do to help all those Syrian Muslims flooding UN camps.

Obama announced our refugee plan for FY2015 at the beginning of the month, but was pretty quiet about how many Syrians we are going to admit.  At about that time, it leaked out that the UNHCR had lined up 4,000 Syrians to arrive soon.  However, watch this news clip (just before the 3 minute mark) of Richard in Germany where she says we now have 5,000 in the pipeline.

Germany has accepted 70,000 Syrians (not clear if they are all in the country yet), but check out how the arrival of more Muslims is sitting with the German people as thousands rioted in Cologne last weekend.   See our post of a few days ago by clicking here.

The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society would like to see 30,000 real soon!  See our post of two days ago where we learned that HIAS (a federal refugee contractor*** being paid to resettle refugees) is getting up a petition to tell Obama to increase our total refugee quota for the year from 70,000 to 100,000.  Why HIAS wants more Muslims in America is beyond my understanding.

*** For new readers (we have many every day) here are the nine major federal refugee contractors (they then have 300 or so subcontractors spread out through America).   And, btw, Anne C. Richard was formerly the VP of one of them—the International Rescue Committee—and before that she worked at the US State Department.  She represents the classic case of the federal contractor/federal agency revolving door.  See also in her bio that she worked for the International Crisis Group which George Soros played an instrumental role in forming.

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!

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society launches petition drive to increase this year’s refugee quota from 70,000-100,000

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 29, 2014

We want 75,000 Syrians admitted to US in next five years.

Citing the crisis in Syria and Iraq, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, one of nine major federal contractors has launched a drive to petition the Obama Administration to increase the Fiscal Year 2015 admissions to the US.

Always keep in mind that the contractors are paid by the head to resettle refugees to your towns and cities.

See a previous post this morning for what all this is costing you.

Readers will remember it was Nezer who earlier this year said we should take 75,000 Syrians over 5 years.

Although she says they are trying to save Christians and religious minorities, interested readers should call them and ask how many Muslims they resettled in recent years and ask what percentage of the Syrians in the pipeline for America right now are Muslims.

From an e-mail alert this morning:

Dear Friend,

10.14---HIAS_SyriaIraq_callout_v4.pngThe conflict in Syria has forced more than 3 million people from their homes. In Iraq, the Islamic State has engaged in an ethnic cleansing campaign against Christians and other ethnic and religious minorities. Those who have fled will likely never be able to return home.

Yet, despite ongoing persecution and conflicts creating more and more refugees, the United States has not increased the quota of people we will resettle in the coming year.

Sign our petition! It is imperative that the annual US refugee quota be increased from 70,000 to 100,000. 

Raising the resettlement ceiling will not put an end to the violence sweeping Syria and Iraq. But it will allow us to save more of the most vulnerable refugees of this unimaginable suffering. It will support the countries hosting them. And it will uphold our nation’s promise to support religious freedom and provide safe haven to those who are persecuted.

Stand with us and urge President Obama to uphold our nation’s promise to support religious freedom and offer safe haven to those who are persecuted for their faith and beliefs.

Sincerely,
Melanie

Melanie Nezer
Vice President, Policy and Advocacy

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.

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.

Crony Christianity! When ‘religious’ charities reap tax dollars for their ‘good works’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 13, 2014

I love it!  Crony Christianity!  It’s like crony capitalism when government and big business work hand in hand (benefiting each other) to the detriment of those paying the bills—you—but this time it’s religious charities feeding on the taxpayer teat while directing government policy.

And, I am overjoyed to see that so many people, writers like Lee Cary, are starting to understand the depth of this evil perpetrated on the American citizen by ‘religious’ behemoths in the name of Christian charity.

Kevin Appleby, USCCB lobbyist and author of the 2013 report predicting the invasion from Central America. Did the Bishops “mission” help make it happen?

Lee Cary, a retired United Methodist Pastor, has coined the perfect phrase to describe what we have been talking about for years.  Here is his description at American Thinker this morning (hat tip: Judy).  Emphasis below is mine:

Crony Christianity challenges the separation of Church and State.

Crony Christianity is the collaborative arrangement between government and Christian faith-based organizations whereby government funds Christian organizations to deliver goods and services that advance the political agenda of the government. Any government.

The crisis surrounding the flood of unaccompanied alien children into the U.S. has promoted crony Christianity.

It is a variation of the spider’s web of similar arrangements, spun between businesses and government, that we call crony capitalism.

The Players

The five players in crony Christianity are: (1) the bureaucrats who run ecclesiastically-related organizations; (2) the church laity aligned with the various denominations that underwrite those organizations, in-part or in-full; (3) officials within government agencies that grant money; (4) tax-payers who fund government grants; and (5) the clients who receive aid from the faith-based organizations that operate with government funding.

The Pathway to Crisis

For reasons that remain unclear and widely debated, the Obama Administration has choreographed the influx of tens of thousands of “unaccompanied alien children” (this term typed into TAGGS – Tracking Accountability in Government Grants System – accesses the list of grant recipients) into the U.S. from several Central American countries.  [Could the choreographing have been a mutual arrangement between the Bishops and the Obama Administration?—ed]

The federal government began to prepare for the flood of children before the tide arrived, and before the legacy media amped-up its coverage of the story. Both knew what was coming before most of the rest of us did.

Those Christian social service organizations that already had an established funding relationship with the federal government stood near the front of the line to help resettle the children, along with secular organizations already knowledgeable of, and dependent upon, federal grants.

Cary then gives us an extensive (but not complete by any means!) list of grants both secular and religious (religious Leftists!) government cronies received to care for the “children.”

It is worse than Cary thinks!

It would seem that Cary is not aware of the fact that virtually the entire budget of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops Migration program (Appleby’s salary too most likely) is funded by US taxpayers.  And, it’s my contention that the Bishops and lobbyist Appleby actually may have started the border stampede in late 2013 with their trip to Central America and subsequent report, here.

Here is Cary on the USCCB:

The Times  [NYT] quoted Kevin Appleby, Director of Migration Policy for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, who said, “We have to put our money where our mouth is in this country. We tell other countries to protect human rights and accept refugees, but when we get a crisis on our border, we don’t know how to respond.”

Appleby presumes to speak for the American tax-payers when he refers to “our money” His title suggests that he should only speak for the money contributed by Roman Catholic laity, and the Roman Catholic Bishops.

Appleby is speaking for the American taxpayer whether we like it or not (98% of the USCCB’s budget is federal money, your money!), so he can’t speak for private Catholic donors because there aren’t enough of them paying his salary and footing the bill for the Bishops ‘good works.’

I have a theory too, that since the refugee contractors (the USCCB is the largest) didn’t get amnesty through Congress (S. 744, the Gang of Eight bill would have given them more clients for their federally-funded services) that they needed a new client base and the “children” fit the bill.

They were probably already staffing-up in anticipation of amnesty and thus in need of more of Caesar’s money.  When amnesty failed to get through the House they had to find another reason to tap the federal treasury—yup! the “children.”
