Weekly roundup for week ending October 21, 2016

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2016

Sorry, for the last couple of weeks, I have not been very good about keeping up with the weekly roundups of the top stories of the week. And, this is going to be a quickie.

The Top Three Posts of the last week that readers were most interested in are as follows (top daily posts are in the right hand sidebar):

60 Minutes spewing B.S. on refugee screening/travel costs

New refugee seeding site: Youngstown, Ohio

Obama State Department bringing refugees in at the astronomical rate of over 400 a day!

For new readers:

This (below) is my usual information to new readers so you can catch up with the last nine years of RRW.

RRW is a blog, a news outlet, not an organization with an office and staff.

I want you to be able to find information here where nearly 8,000 posts are archived!

Are you having problems with your subscription?  I’ve heard from several of you lately that you are not receiving your usual e-mail notices.  I have no control over that.  Those e-mails are managed directly by wordpress. I recommend that if you are having trouble (or you are getting too many every day), then simply visit here from time to time and just scroll back through recent posts.

Also, if you visit regularly you can use the search window using a few key words and find some important information among almost 8,000 posts going back to 2007!  If you are seriously interested in this issue, you won’t be getting the most out of RRW by simply reading posts in e-mail notices.

Also, see our newly updated Frequently Asked Questions and our fact sheet (out of date but still useful) in the header. In the FAQ you will see a link for ‘Ten things your town needs to know.’

I’ve been tweeting a lot and sometimes if I can’t write about a story you send, I tweet it.  See my twitter feed (over 5,000 followers at this moment) in the right-hand side bar. Even if you aren’t on twitter, you should be able to open the links to the news embedded in the tweet.  I am@RefugeeWatcher.

Likewise you might want to ‘like’ and follow RRW’s facebook page, here.  See it also in the left-hand side bar. It has over 32,000 likes now.  A friend helps me there (because I stink at facebook) so you will see other related news there that is not on RRW.

If you are looking for fellow grassroots activists in ‘pockets of resistance’ see the Refugee Resisters facebook page here (Jim Simpson).

All previous round-ups and this one are archived in a category simply called ‘blogging.’

My FIRST video about how the refugee program works is here (over 2.5 million views as of this writing).

All comments you submit are screened and we don’t post threats of violence, most foul language, or ad hominem attacks on other commenters.  Sometimes I am away from the computer for many hours, so you may not see your comment posted quickly.

As much as I would love to see you all in your hometowns, I hate speaking. I think I am more useful right here researching and writing.

In two weeks and two days we will know if there is any hope of reforming this out-of-control refugee program or not! Go Trump!

      That’s interesting because I find it not as much fun to write as finding new stuff, but several readers have asked for it so they might know what are the ‘trending’ issues…
