Charleston, WV: Another resettlement site expansion being done in secrecy

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 9, 2016

Update October 11: Breitbart picks up the story, here.

We have been reporting to you for years that the only way the federal government and its contractors can successfully establish a new or expanded refugee seed community is by keeping their plans secret, within a small group of supporters (and some elected officials!), and getting the program approved before the general public catches on.

It has been my contention for the last nine years that resettlement planning must be done openly, in broad daylight with plenty of opportunity for the public to get all the facts and weigh in on whether they think it is the right thing for their community.

If the non-profit groups (the contractors) and the Department of State (DOS) cannot ‘sell’ the program with all the facts laid out in advance, then the program is not suitable for this particular community.

Today, Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart has summarized some of the latest information on communities kept in the dark about what Washington had planned for them.  Click here for that story.

Now the Charleston, WV story!

capito-and-manchin

WV Senators Capito and Manchin haven’t agreed to meet with Charleston resident Brenda Arthur, but did meet with the advocates for Syrian Muslim resettlement in the state Capital. The Congressman for the district is Alex Mooney (R) and his staff also met with those promoting the Syrian plan.

You can visit our previous posts on Charleston here.

West Virginia has only gotten a very small number of refugees ever since this program was established in 1980, but all  that could change if Episcopal Migration Ministries joins Catholic Charities and begins to place Syrian and other refugees from the Middle East and Africa in the state capital.

And, frankly, you would never know that it was happening, that the federal legislators had met with a local Interfaith group and gave the go-ahead by attending meetings, being informed and then not saying anything to the general public about the quiet planning process underway. If it weren’t for the dogged research of one citizen activist—Brenda Arthur—no one but a tiny select group of insiders would have a clue about what was coming.

I’ll let Brenda tell you the story (below) as she told it to Senator Jeff Sessions when she sent this testimony last week to the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest which the Senator chairs.

RE: UN/US Refugee Admissions Program

Dear Senator Sessions :

I am writing out of my deep concern for the invasion of our country which is being sponsored and sanctioned by our own State Department and the UNHCR through the Refugee Admissions program all with our own tax dollars .

The UNHCR is picking our refugees for us and it is clear that our State Department has failed in its mission for the people of the United States . This Refugee Admissions program is not serving the interest of the America people but is serving the interests of lobbyists , globalists , and the 9 major Volags who are and have been feeding at the public trough for decades now . Congress has failed miserably to provide for our interests and seemingly has”rubber stamped” the President’s determination yearly . Please hear us now as we make our plea to save our country .

Third world poverty is being imported into our country en masse . This is being done as part of Obama’s overall plan to fundamentally transform America . The whole immigration system is out of control . West Virginia already faces a budget shortfall for 2018 FY of 290 million dollars , the unemployment rate is 6.5% and above the national average , the assault on our coal industry has cost 700 coal miners their jobs, there is a drug epidemic , and the June flood disaster severely damaged or destroyed 1200 homes. In addition , there are other economic factors that are impacting our state . How does it even remotely make sense to bring foreign nationals to our state at such high tax payer expense when so many of our own people are suffering ? Further , our country is 20 trillion dollars in debt . A sane nation does not do this !

Because we are a small state we have so far escaped some of the invasion devastation other larger states have experienced by their towns being invaded and overrun by hoards of peoples who neither want to assimilate or are assimilating . In fact , it is my understanding that they are encouraged ” not to assimilate but rather to integrate ” . I along with others are trying very hard to fight this invasion and keep this from happening here to our beloved state of West Virginia .

In my research to find out about the workings of the Refugee Resettlement program and the contractors I became aware that this program has been operating very much in secret since its inception in 1980. Once I became aware of this effort to resettle refugees in my state of West Virginia I contacted 7-8 elected officials : 2 town mayors , 3-4 state senators and or delegates , my U.S. Congressman Alex Mooney , U.S.Senator Shelley Moore Capito , and the Governor’s office . Even though refugees had been resettled in West Virginia no one knew anything about it . The Chief of Staff for Governor Tomblin even told me that West Virginia was not scheduled to receive any refugees . I later found out that the Governor had in fact signed a state refugee plan 3-4 months before I made the call to his office . This is not accountable or transparent government .

USCCB (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) operating as Catholic Charities of West Virginia is the major contractor in our state placing refugees . EMM ( Episcopal Migration Ministries) has filed with the State Department to also become a contractor here in West Virginia . I never hear the contractors speak of the interests of the people . They always speak of the interests of the refugees. I very much want to see the Episcopal Migration Ministries application to “set up shop ” rejected . I have tried to get word regarding this to my U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito but it seems to fall on deaf ears or it is not being communicated to her .

On August 1 ,2016 I contacted the State Refugee Coordinator here in West Virginia to request a copy of the R&P (Reception & Placement ) Abstract for 2016 and 2017 . I was asked who I was . I replied that I am just a private citizen who wants to know about the refugee resettlement program in West Virginia . The State Refugee Coordinator then told me that they couldn’t give this out to just anybody . I asked her why not when it is a public document and the program is paid for mostly with our tax dollars. She just replied that we have our process and that I would have to make a FOIA request . I did make that request and received the documents on August 9 ,2016 .

In finding out more about how the contractors operate I learned that they are to hold quarterly ” stakeholder ” meetings to track and report on the refugees who have been placed . I found out that they consider entities like the school officials, law enforcement, free clinic providers, potential employers , social service providers ,and others the “stakeholders” —–not the people of the community . We are completely left out while they operate in ” secret” .

It would be in the best interests of the refugees to one day return to their home country . Meanwhile , for every 1 refugee brought here we could provide the necessities of life for 12 refugees there . The Refugee Admissions program also poses a threat to our national security as you know . This fact alone should be sufficient to de-fund this program and put a halt to the refugee admissions ” racket” .

Senator Sessions , the Refugee Act of 1980 ultimately needs to be repealed . Meanwhile , “We the People ” must rely on advocates like you who will operate in our interests —-not the interests of the UN , lobbyists , globalists , or any and all enemies both foreign and domestic who are out to undermine the sovereignty, safety , and security of our beloved and great nation.

Sincerely ,

Brenda K. Arthur

Congressman Alex Mooney

Arthur would like to have one-on-one meetings with members of the West Virginia delegation to discuss why she thinks the program is not good for West Virginia where the coal industry has been devastated and Americans need jobs. So far they will not meet with her.

But get this, they have already been meeting with the WV Interfaith Ministry and the WV Friends of Syrian Refugees as noted in January 2016 minutes obtained by Arthur. I found it interesting that these advocates for resettling refugees appear to be completely in the bag for Syrians, usually groups like this are pushing refugee resettlement in general and are happy with whatever ethnic groups they acquire. (And apparently the contractors have not informed them that they don’t choose who comes to WV, they will be assigned a smattering of up to 15 different ethnic groups.)

Below is a screen shot from page 2 of the minutes:

So, why are they making themselves scarce when it comes to those in opposition to bringing Syrians to West Virginia?

Incidentally, we do know that 99% of the Syrians entering the US now are Muslims (mostly Sunnis) who are not being thoroughly screened. We heard that in testimony to the Sessions’ subcommittee here.

Wisconsin Refugee Agency may have scammed taxpayers big time!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 9, 2016

Call home Paul Ryan!  This outrageous “savings” program is one of many, you as Speaker of the House, need to investigate!

paul-ryan-beard

Speaker Paul Ryan has shown zero interest in reforming the Refugee Act of 1980. I wonder could we suggest Janesville (his home town) as one of the many new resettlement sites in America!

I’m guessing this is not an isolated case.

For new readers, Speaker Paul Ryan has not allowed any serious Refugee Act reform bills (he allowed one sham bill because he knew the Senate wouldn’t pass it anyway) to move forward in the House during his tenure as speaker and for that matter neither has Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

These so-called ‘Individual Development Accounts’ are an abomination and potentially rife with fraud. When taxpayers learn about them (we have mentioned them on many occasions) they are shocked.

The federal government actually gives grants to non-profit refugee agencies to administer a program which allows refugees to get matching funds when they save money for four things (Education, business, home or car).

How would you like to get such a deal:

For every dollar a refugee saves, he/she is matched a dollar out of  the US Treasury (your pocket)!

But, again the program is managed by a resettlement contractor (with no accountability to the taxpayer) like this one in Milwaukee.  Financial audits/investigations of the contractors are rare.

From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel  (hat tip: Joanne):

A Milwaukee nonprofit that offers after-school programs for refugee children and other assistance for refugees is under investigation for alleged misuse of federal funds.

The Pan-African Community Association gave money to at least 32 people who were not eligible to receive funds, investigators with the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement have found, according to records obtained by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel under the Freedom of Information Act.

ecdc-logo

The Ethiopian Community Development Council is one of nine federally funded refugee contractors that could not exist without your tax dollars. Go to this link to see if they have an office near you: http://www.ecdcus.org/Where_We_Work/affiliates.html

In addition, the organization violated terms of federal grants by spending more than 35% of its annual budget on administrative costs and paying individuals in the form of money orders, rather than paying vendors directly for items purchased, the reports state.

The association received more than $440,000 in federal funds from 2012 to 2015 to help refugees from Africa and around the world buy cars and houses and to open businesses in Milwaukee. Using Individual Development Accounts, the program was designed to offer matching grants to refugees who, for example, saved at least $2,000 of their own money to go toward the purchase of a car or $4,000 toward a house.

[….]

The Pan-African Community Association is contracted through the “preferred communities program,” with the Ethiopian Community Development Council. The council, in turn, is one of about 10 [nine actually—ed] national organizations — mostly faith-based — that the federal government contracts with to provide services to refugees.

Continue here for more of the gory details and denials.

I haven’t written about “preferred communities” since here in 2014. But, you might have a look and see if your city is one of them. They don’t change often.

Call Congress!

Time to listen to ‘Mom for Trump’ (I am not going to quit trying to persuade you that right now there is only one place to put pressure to slow the flow of third worlders to your towns—Congress!):

Ann, could you tell all your readers on a daily basis to call our useless Congress @ 202 224 3121 and have them say DEFUND REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM. I call daily and if enough of us do so, we can make a difference.

If you have problems getting a live person on the phone when you call Washington (like I did when I called my Congressman John Delaney (D-MD) the other day), then find out the locations and phone numbers of their district and state offices and call those.  When you have someone on the phone on Tuesday (they surely won’t be there on Monday), in addition to telling them to defund the program, find out where your member or Senator will be in the coming weeks and be there!  Ask (in person, in front of an audience) if he or she will Defund the Refugee Resettlement Program when they get back to DC after the election.

Yikes! Wikileaks hack reveals what Hillary (really!) thinks of black and Muslim immigrants

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 9, 2016

Of course, when I saw this the first thing that came to my mind was: If she believes this, then why on earth is she promoting more Muslim and African refugee resettlement for hundreds of American towns?

hillary-and-podesta-seiu

E-mail pen pals! Hillary with long-time mentor John Podesta at SEIU shindig. Podesta is Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager.

From Freedom Daily:

The whistle-blowing site also released emails from Clinton campaign chairman, John Podesta. Podesta once served as former President Bill Clinton’s Chief of Staff.

[….]

One particular email exchange between Hillary Clinton and Podesta shows the candidate has a serious problem with blacks and Muslims. It’s not just a serious problem, it’s downright racist.

In the email from February of this year Hillary states that:

“The main reason behind successful immigration should be painfully obvious to even the most dimwitted of observers: Some groups of people are almost always highly successful given only half a chance (Jews*, Hindus/Sikhs and Chinese people, for example), while others (Muslims, blacks** and Roma***, for instance) fare badly almost irrespective of circumstances.”

Hillary continues by labeling blacks & Muslims “professional never-do-wells.”

Can you imagine if Donald Trump said that!

Visit Freedom Daily to see screen shots of the exchanges. If I hadn’t seen the screenshots I might not have believed this happened.

Go here to see what we have written about Podesta over many years.

Where do WE put a billion people?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 9, 2016

The ‘WE’ of course being the great planners and social engineers of the universe, including the environmentalists and the human rights gang (the UN surely).

In a recent article in Nature, the authors say the world’s population will grow by 1 billion by 2030 and they are plotting where would it be best for the earth to put that next billion (if they were granted permission I suppose to move people around the globe—but wait! Isn’t that what the UN is already doing without permission?).

No surprise! Most of the population that will expand is in Africa and Asia so those people would presumably need to be moved.

Here is the story at the Daily Mail:

Academics Richard T.T. Forman and Jinguo Wu mapped out areas around the world where these additional people could live most sustainably.

[They] ruled out regions with already dense populations as well as areas with high water stress, extreme climates and unique species.

[….]

In Nature, the two professors called for ‘worldwide coordination’ to promote a balanced population in a way that would minimize the ‘already heavy ecological footprint on our finite Earth’.

So check it out.  Do you live in a population dump target zone? Yellow! And, to a lesser degree blue!

 

screenshot-31

 

Sure looks like the excess population of the Middle East/North Africa would be moved elsewhere.  Did you ever wonder why there is complete silence on the subject of excessive population growth in Muslim countries?

UN family planning for Muslims!

No, you know the answer, these population police are afraid to tell Muslims that they need to stick to 2 children per family to save the planet! Ha! Ha! I would love to see the new Secretary General of the UN—Antonio Guterres—take on that project (UN family planning for Muslims!). Hey, if we send so much money to the UN maybe a Trump administration could demand that such a program be launched!

Although we haven’t said much about it lately, you might be interested in our ‘Climate refugees’ category because although I’m not a big conspiracy hunter it doesn’t take much to figure out that the great minds and social engineers are busy getting all this in place.  Maybe the Refugee Program is part of the overall plan to soften us up for kill.

2030 is not far away!
