Comment worth noting: What happens when a Muslim girl is expected to shower with a male who thinks he is a girl?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2016

After all, you have to laugh sometimes! Our reader domstudent11 posed this little query which demonstrates so hilariously how the Left will tie itself into knots with its political correctness nonsense!

From domstudent11:

restroom sign

Here’s what baffles me: at the same time that Obama is suing North Carolina for it’s “bathroom” law and trying to bully schools into mingling boys and girls in bathrooms and locker rooms, he is “importing” thousands of Muslims who would find it permissible to attack a non-relative male seen with any of their women.

What does he think will happen when Muslim girls are forced to shower with males who “think” they are female?

What does he think will happen when a Muslim husband sees a man (who “feels” like a woman) following his wife into a public restroom?

The only solution I can see is that public facilities and schools will be expected to provide an additional bathroom/locker room for Muslim girls only. Muslim boys would be free, of course, to share the facilities with infidel girls (if they are feeling like girls on any given day). Fair isn’t it?  Other suggestions?

Afterthought: Where is CAIR on Obama’s bathroom policy?

Testimony to the US State Department from Carol in Virginia

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2016

Editor: This is another copy of testimony submitted in response to my offer to post testimony that readers have sent, or are sending, to the US State Department before May 19th.  Your testimony can be long or short, more detailed or less so.  Just send something!  And, then be sure to copy it to your elected officials.

Moratorium requested on resettlement of African and Middle Eastern refugees….

From Carol:

Dear Ms. Richards

This letter is a request for a moratorium on resettling refugees in the United States from Africa and the Middle East. Americans must study the long-term effects large groups of indigent refugees will have on communities throughout the country. It would also allow state and local governments to assess their financial obligations, and how they might pay for the additional services refugees require. Alas, a significant aspect of the resettlement process eludes transparent informing-or receiving of input-from average citizens, who will be footing the bill for the continued, and in all likelihood significant, on-going services.

moratorium-logo-update-blk

One of the largest historical waves of immigration into the U.S. occurred after the Civil War, when industry was booming, and the federal government was giving away huge tracks of free land. That’s a far cry from our situation today. Taxpayers in the U.S. now owe $19+ trillion dollars, not counting future unfunded liabilities that financial experts calculate to be over $100 trillion dollars. These numbers are staggering and above the tipping point modeled by other failed economies of the past 100 years, such as Greece, Venezuela, 1920s Germany, etc. In addition, we’ve spent $22 trillion since the 1960s, to eliminate poverty in our country, without success. Now the U.S. is resettling hundreds of thousands of mostly impoverished refugees from the failed states of Africa and the Middle East, into the heartland and big cities of America. If successful assimilation is the goal, this scenario is fraught with impending failure and calamity.

Unemployment in poor and minority communities is higher than it was for the whole population during the Great Depression, and too many of our high schools have a graduation rate of 50% of the students who started out as freshmen. Many of these schools are already struggling to accommodate large numbers of non-English speaking learners. This is not the time to incorporate large numbers of severely disadvantaged people. In addition, Muslim refugees’ religious beliefs require strict obedience to the tenets of their faith. Many of these beliefs run counter to our Constitution, which will create serious long term conflict. Because these refugees home countries are in such turmoil, they have never had the opportunity to practice the essential building blocks of a dynamic democratic republic, such as respect for the Bill of Rights, the rule of law, freedom of religion, and open debate.

One of the fundamental American qualities since our founding has been flexibility. This flexibility is an essential component to how we became a world power. For much of our history, Americans have experienced the most rapid changes any culture has ever adapted to, politically, socially, economically, technologically, scholastically, and militarily. But even a culture as robust as ours can be challenged beyond its breaking point. It is that breaking point that concerns me.

Using Europe as an example, large numbers of poorly-educated, non-native speaking groups of Muslim immigrants have created the most challenges the Continent has faced since the aftermath of World War II. We must learn from their example.

The State Department and the United Nations should encourage Muslim countries to accept these refugees, or to establish decent refugee camps, until the conflicts end. The U.S. is no longer able to solve all the world’s problems. Muslim refugees moving to Muslim countries would at least find social and religious compatibility. Unlike our country, for we are in the midst of rapidly changing moral codes.

In closing, I must emphatically state how difficult I believe these refugees lives are. Each of them may well be heroes and heroines. Yet I do not think two wrongs make a right. It is a wrong that their home countries cannot settle their differences. It is also wrong to try and integrate them into our country which poses a serious breakdown to our successful social cohesion.

I urge the State Department to have a moratorium on receiving Muslim refugees from Africa and the Middle East. American citizens must study and discuss the long-term effects large groups of indigent refugees will have on their communities, their taxes, public school education, then decide for themselves how to shape their future.

This is the fifth testimony in our series  leading up to the deadline for testimony on May 19th.  Go here for where they are archived. We are posting as many as we can because we know the US State Department has refused in the past to make them public (so much for Obama transparency!).

Testimony to the US State Department from California reader: our ship is sinking

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2016

Editor: This is another copy of testimony submitted in response to my offer to post testimony that readers have sent, or are sending, to the US State Department before May 19th.  Your testimony can be long or short, more detailed or less so.  Just send something!  And, then be sure to copy it to your elected officials.

From California reader:

To Whom It May Concern;

I am opposed to any expansion of the refugee population in this country. I think the seeding of refugees leads to more trouble on Americans who are already overburdened by crime, over population caused by expanding refugee, illegal immigrants and illegal immigrant’s births. Besides crime and a drain on taxpayers for free programs and the like, the sprawl of the settlements has drastically reduced the productive acreage necessary to support our crops.

Too many passengers will sink a ship. The great America our ancestors struggled to create is near sinking. Stop the flood of refugees and illegal immigrants. Everyone would do better to receive our aid while they remain in their own countries and NOT here!

This is the fourth testimony in our series  leading up to the deadline for testimony on May 19th.  Go here for where they are archived. We are posting as many as we can because we know the US State Department has refused in the past to make them public (so much for Obama transparency!).

Nevada: Ready or not refugees on the way to Reno

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2016

Update May 16th:  Reno followup—incredibly important information (go here).

I’ve been reporting in recent weeks about the new sites being targeted for refugee seeding by the the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program (most recently yesterday it was Rutland, VT***).

Carina-Black-main

Carina Black will be in charge of seeding Reno with refugees. Photo and bio here: http://www.unr.edu/nnic/about/staff/carina-black

It is my educated guess that the federal resettlement contractors are wearing out their welcome in the 190 or so places in the US where refugees are already being resettled (and in many cases have been resettled for decades) and that perhaps one of the limiting factors is government-funded housing (not to mention other important things like lack of jobs!) and are thus scouting fresh territory.

Also, remember that Obama has upped the refugee stream to America this year from the 70,000 number of recent years to 85,000 by September 30th.

Starting October 1, Obama says he will be recommending 100,000 for FY2017 (even though he will be out of the White House for most of it).

Digressing for a minute, Congress will have a huge role to play in September when Obama makes his final determination about the number of refugees coming for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1 and we will be watching to see if the gutless Congress does anything about it!

So back to Reno (and other sites) which are being prepped for the even bigger wave of refugees expected to begin October 1. By the way, I’m wondering if the low-skilled refugees will compete with Nevada’s large Hispanic population for jobs.

From KUNR radio:

The U.S. State Department has greenlighted a Northern Nevada nonprofit to help resettle refugees escaping hotbeds of conflict around the globe beginning this fall.

Carina Black, executive director of the Reno-based Northern Nevada International Center, says their application to become an official resettlement agency was approved in February. They’ve since been laying the groundwork, and building a stakeholders’ network, before those first few families arrive.

Those stakeholders include people from the health industry, from education, from ESL… people in the faith communities have been coming forward and showing a huge interest in helping us,” she says. “So we’re still basically conducting a lot of training…and getting ready for this new endeavor.”  [Remember readers that you are a stakeholder too! Maybe since you are paying for all of it, the biggest stakeholder of all!—ed]

Black says initially about two families — approximately 10 people — could arrive by September. For the federal fiscal year running Oct. 2016 through 2017, they’ve asked to resettle at most 75 refugees.

[….]

The full list of countries include: Cuba, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Eritrea, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

El Salvador and Guatemala have never been refugee-sending countries, that is, until Obama magically turned the unaccompanied alien minors from Central America into refugees.  He was re-writing the Refugee Act of 1980 without Congress and Congress let him get away with it!

The mayor had concerns.  It is up to citizens of Reno to speak up NOW if you have similar concerns!

Mayor Hillary Schieve was quoted last November saying she would prefer a “pause” on the program, following the terrorist attacks in Paris, but Black says she’s since had productive meetings with Schieve and other city council members to assuage their concerns.

Recently we told you that sites are getting ready to open in Ithaca, NY, Missoula, MT, and Rutland, VT.  I’m betting there are at least 30 new sites in the works where plans are being made in secret to bring the joys of multiculturalism to your neighborhood.  The only way you or I will know if your town is next, is if it appears in a local news story like this one. And, you can bet you will not see any of this in the mainstream media or cable news!

***The major refugee contractor for both Rutland and Reno is the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (more to come on this!).  Stay tuned!

Virginia Congressman backed by 9 Jewish organizations wants to block Trump Muslim ban idea

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2016

From Daily Sabah:

 

Don Byer

Rep. Don Beyer represents the Virginia district just across the river from Washington, DC and has a large number of Muslim constituents.  Photo and more on the story here: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/democrats-introduce-bill-oppose-trumps-proposed-immigration-ban/story?id=39044688

Nine Jewish organizations have joined a call supporting a bill that would prevent banning entry to the United States on the basis of religion, a step taken after GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump proposed ban on Muslims entering the U.S.

“Concerns about national security are mixing with unchecked anti-Muslim bigotry and fomenting unjust fear and scrutiny of Muslim refugees and immigrants,” said the statement released Tuesday, a day before Rep. Don Beyer, D-Va., is due to unveil the legislation.

The groups expressed their support for a bill announced by Virginia congressman Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) Wednesday that would make it illegal for the US to block an immigrant based on his or her religion.

The statement backing Beyer’s bill was organized by Interfaith Alliance, a group directed by Rabbi Jack Moline and include umbrella bodies for the Reform, Conservative and Reconstructionist movements, as well as the Anti-Defamation League, the National Council of Jewish Women, J Street, Habonim Dror, Bend the Arc Jewish Action and T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported.

Beyer, a Democrat of course, is a first term Congressman.

Once the Hijra is advanced, and the Muslim population reaches a certain level in the US, guess which religion will be persecuted first?

African migrants now launching from Egypt

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….

I wasn’t going to bother posting this one more story about hundreds of refugees stranded in the Mediterranean and being rescued by the Italian coast guard (so what else is new!), but then I saw this particular group launched, not from the usual lawless Libya (thank Hillary), but from Egypt.

Why didn’t Egypt’s military government stop the launch, heck, you could hardly hide boats big enough to carry hundreds?

From DNA India:

Italy rescue

Italian navy or coastguard (reports vary) ferry mostly Africans to Italy. Why not ferry them right back to Egypt! This story says they rescued 1,000 illegal aliens in the last week alone. http://www.voanews.com/content/thousand-refugees-migrants-rescuedi-italy-united-nations-reports/3329517.html

Hundreds of refugees were brought to Italy on Friday having been rescued from the sea over the past day, however the majority were not Syrian, as previously reported, but came from a variety of countries, officials said.

The Italian coast guard, which orchestrated various rescue missions on Thursday, initially said most of the new arrivals appeared to be from Syria — a sign that Middle East refugees were shifting their route into Europe away from Greece.

However, further checks showed that while there probably were Syrians and Iraqis on board two rescued boats, there were also a large number of Egyptians, Somalis and Eritrean. In all, there were just over 800 people aboard the two vessels.

“The majority are not from Syria,” said Carlotta Sami, a spokeswoman with the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR, after a first group of 340 people were brought ashore.

She confirmed initial reports that the two boats had set sail from Egypt rather than Libya, which is the usual staging post used by people smugglers looking to move refugees into Europe from north Africa.

The story goes on to report that many were unaccompanied teenagers.

It seems all of Africa is going to be in Europe someday because there appears to be no will on the part of most Europeans to stop it.

Recently someone told me they had a friend in the travel business who was telling clients to see Europe NOW before it is completely colonized.
