All politics is local: Get rid of mayors like these!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 28, 2016

Tomorrow I’ll have been on the road for two weeks and I’ve made stops in 7 states and put 2,000 miles on my car. There is a very clear pattern developing and I’m going to take each piece one at a time. Frankly, I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know with my revelations from the road!

Mike Brown has been mayor of Grand Forks since the year 2,000 so he is responsible for the refugee flow to that city.  (Logan Werlinger/Grand Forks Herald)

If you are troubled by the secrecy you see with the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program as it disrupts the social and economic stability of your communities, look first at your local elected officials.

Yesterday, I mentioned the controversy on-going in Rutland, VT with a mayor who invited a federal resettlement contractor to bring in 100 Syrian Muslims a few short months from now.

Concerned citizens there have stirred the political pot as they should and the issue has now bled over to the governor’s race (here).

And, don’t miss Leo Hohmann’s WND article yesterday about how the elected officials of Bloomington, MN have betrayed their people.

Before I go any further watch this interview with Mayor Mike Brown of Grand Forks, North Dakota last week.  With mayors like these who needs enemies!

Valley News Live Fargo, ND reports:  Click here to watch.  And as you watch this mayor fumble questions about what data supports his contention that refugees have benefited Grand Forks, consider that this man is a medical doctor and thus should be smart enough to understand the importance of economic data to make his point.  The problem is that no one, until now, has probably ever demanded he go beyond talking points. 

It appears that Brown, who has no data to support his glowing assessment that refugees have brought economic prosperity to Grand Forks, is actually reading from some fluffy puffy statement that must have come down from on high at “Welcoming America” or one of its many local clone organizations.

You must work to change your LOCAL elected officials!

That is my message for today.  I’m seeing the same clear message everywhere I go—local elected officials either because there is money to be made from industries needing cheap labor, or simply because they have bought the whole progressive (multiculturalism is beautiful) agenda—must be defeated at the polls!

To do that you must (besides finding some good candidates—a tall order I know), investigate the ones you have. Dig deep into public records and expose their connections/donors and deals.  And, to do that effectively you must have a means of communicating what you have found to your community.  Friendly media for us is very rare since most small town newspapers have sold out to the progressive agenda, so if you can’t get local media, you will have to create your own media!

I see it over and over, great research going on with our folks locally, but the work sits on computers or in stacks of documents that never leave a small circle of hardcore patriotic activists.

Create your own media by creating localized/statewide websites (I like that working in Vermont!), start a radio show of your own, and report hard research information, don’t just talk about liberty and the Constitution, although important subjects for sure, but expose local crony capitalists running (ruining!) your towns with serious investigative work!

  1. dear Ann , Thank you for all you do. I have a former brother-in law running for Mayor in East Grand Forks, MN. I will be contacting him about your site.

      Thank you! Yes, we must get to the local elected officials. Washington isn’t going to solve this anytime soon!

    Hello Ann Corcoran, I wholeheartedly agree with your recommendation: I started my own blog a few weeks ago re California. This state is too YUUGE to make a dent. My purpose was to educate my husband and I. Naturally I’ve gleaned plenty of stuff from you!

    Ann, I just learned from a 2012 report that ASYLEES – unlike REFUGEES – do not get a health check until one year after entrance.

    I’d like to help you. Would you like more disease-specific news reports? I think this topic needs to be exposed more and more. I’m a retired public health educator. I love research. Let me know.

      Wonderful!!! So excited to see your blog. Every reader take note! You can do this too!

      Haven’t had time to read the 2012 report and can’t wait to do so. Yes, definitely send more health related stories my way. I hope everyone is reading Michael Patrick Leahy’s (Breitbart) series on TB in the refugee stream to your towns! This has been a very overlooked topic as so many of us are concerned about terrorism, but health problems and health costs with refugees are a ticking time bomb!

    Hi Ann,

    I live in Rutland,Vt. Interesting video in Grand Forks. In digging a bit deeper there is a story about a man arrested at a church there yesterday. See picture of the young male, no name given.

    Thank you for blogging!!!!

    They’ve just re-elected this guy in Grand Forks. Crazy. Good point about cultivating information transmission connections. Kudos to Chris Berg, who interviewed the Grand Forks mayor in the clip you included, for he’s not afraid to tackle this thorny issue.
