I thought I was done today having written 5 posts since the crack of dawn this morning, but when a friend sent me this from VOX (go hereto see who the heck they are) I figured I needed to post it.
Vox just made my day!
A video claiming refugees are a Muslim plot to colonize America has nearly 3 million views
The woman, Ann Corcoran, claims that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees is “under the influence of a powerful Muslim supremacist group” [That would be the Organization of Islamic Cooperation—ed]— and that the Muslim refugees it is sending over are the vanguard of an evil plot to colonize America and subject it to a theocratic Muslim government.
“This process of Muslim colonization is called the hijra,” she says, using the Arabic word for migration. “Mohammed told his followers to migrate and spread Islam, in order to dominate all the lands of the world … and that’s exactly what they’re doing now.”
This kind of bizarro rant is par for the course on YouTube. Except this one has received 2.6 million views since it went up in April 2015. Part of the reason is that it’s produced by America’s premier Islamophobic organization — one with strong links to the Trump administration.
Who is Ann Corcoran?
Continue here and see what they say! And, don’t miss the link to their list of ‘white nationalists’ in the Trump Administration.
LOL! And what is up with this? Their url has the word “sharia” in it, but the text is silent about it! Hmmmm!
This is their wrap-up:
It’s no accident, then, that this anti-refugee propaganda got such wide play.
It’s part of a powerful anti-Islam movement that has a much larger reach than most people in America imagine.
If you would like to see my other videos, go here. And, hey, let’s push this first one over 3 million and give them a major thrill!
BTW, their research is lousy because they missed my HUGE award this past year, see here.
Update February 4th: Now the big boys (top nine refugee contractors) are wailing and moaning, see here.
I am just being flooded both from readers and from my alerts with articles expressing concern for refugees (you know those emotional stories they were promoting in the conference call earlier in the week), but many articles make it clear that the refugee agencies—the federal contractors—are worried about THEIR pocketbooks too.
The original Refugee Act of 1980 contemplated a ‘public-private’ partnership for placing refugees around America, but what has happened over the years is that the ‘non-profits’ (they call themselves volags, short for voluntary agencies!) became dependent on greater and greater amounts of taxpayer dollars to stay afloat.
Indeed, one contractor USCRIis 97% funded by you. In other words they have become fat and lazy on your money and so charity fundraisers put on by them are a rare sight.
It’s sort of like a Ponzi scheme!
They are paid by the head from the US State Department, so when not enough “clients” are admitted to the US, guess what? They run out of your money!
Now they are admitting it!
Nebraska resettlement agency may lose federal funding, here.
Possible layoffs at Catholic Charities as federal money dries up in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, here.
Wisconsinrefugee agencies face reduced funding, here.
….if members of Congress do not grow spines and begin to revamp/rewrite the Refugee Act of 1980, anything President Trump does now will be lost in 4 or 8 years.
And, whether Trump’s EO does even half of what it promises will depend on who becomes the Asst. Sec. of State for Population, Refugees and Migration, and who becomes the Director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (HHS).
Here is Betsy McCaughey writing at the New York Post about beleaguered school districts coping with large numbers (and costs) of refugee children the school system wasn’t expecting (due to the secrecy surrounding their placement).
I don’t have time to link all of the places we have identified in the past having such problems, but search RRW for Lancaster, PA, Amarillo, TX, Manchester, NH and Utica, NY.
Public schools beleaguered by waves of refugees will get a breather thanks to President Trump’s executive order suspending refugee entry for 120 days. And under Trump’s new policy, when the US reopens its doors to refugees, local communities will be consulted. That beats the Obama administration’s dictatorial approach, which has overwhelmed many school districts. [Bush and all the Presidents before him did nothing to allow communities any say either—-ed]
Until now, refugee children have been placed in districts with little or no advance notice. Arriving from countries like Congo, Burma, Somalia and Syria, they speak no English and bear the signs of trauma from their ordeals. They need interpreters, counselors and attention. But often they’re placed in the poorest school districts — which can least afford them.
School authorities try to be welcoming, but no good deed goes unpunished. The American Civil Liberties Union is targeting these communities, claiming they’re not doing enough for refugees. On top of the costs of educating the refugees, towns are getting slapped with lawsuits and legal fees.
The State Department decides where refugees are settled.The feds pay nonprofits such as Catholic Charities to rent and furnish apartments for refugees, enroll them in English class and put their children in public school.
In New York, upstate cities like Buffalo, Syracuse and Utica are magnets for resettlement because the $900-a-month housing stipend goes a lot farther than in New York City or on Long Island.
Buffalo has absorbed 10,000 refugees in the last decade. At Lafayette High School there, 45 languages are spoken, 70 percent of students are just learning English and nearly 40 percent missed years of schooling before arriving.
“This is the worst deal ever,” sending “next Boston bombers” into the US!
President Donald Trump
We’ve been telling you about the rotten deal Obama made with Australia that doesn’t benefit the US one bit ever since it surfaced, here, November 4th. (One more Obama dirty deal left behind for Trump!)
In a rare show of strength on any issue involving refugees, the Chairmen of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees came out against the deal here a couple of weeks after Trump was elected.
But, just a couple of days agowe heard Australian Prime Minister Turnbull telling his media that the deal would be honored by President Trump. Now we are hearing the Administration’s side of it!
Before I give the latest news which I caught on CNN first thing this morning (remember I suggested you might want to watch CNN once in awhile because then you can see for yourself how they spin about news you know something about).
Here is what I know and you need to know as this continues to blow up today:
Australia does take refugees (CNN said this morning that they don’t!), but the Australian public doesn’t want these migrants (mostly Muslim men!) who tried to get into Australia by boat. They were sent to detention on offshore islands where they failed to be granted asylum to live in Australia.
The Australian public does not want them and Turnbull is trying to save his political skin while human rights activists agitate and blast him from one side and the sensible Australian people from the other.
These are illegal migrants who failed to gain asylum in Australia! Australia doesn’t want them. Why are they our problem?
And, what are we getting from the deal? Supposedly Australia will take a number of Central American migrants parked in Costa Rica right now.*** So why are thosepeople our problem?
***Update***Excellent background report at the Center for Immigration Studies on the deal, by Nayla Rush, here.
To top it off, one of my Australian readers is saying that many of the 1,000-2,000 (numbers vary) in detention don’t want to come to “Donald Trump’s America” anyway!
President Trump reportedly blasted the Australian Prime Minister during a phone call between the leaders of the two longtime allies.
Trump told Australian leader Malcolm Turnbull that the conversation was “the worst call by far” among talks with various world leaders that day and ended the scheduled hour-long conversation after just 25 minutes, according to The Washington Post.
Trump was reportedly incensed that the Prime Minister expected him to abide by an Obama administration agreement to take in 1,250 refugees from Australia.
“This is the worst deal ever,” Trump told Turnbull in the call, adding that the country was trying to send the “next Boston bombers” into the US.
Trump was “yelling” at Turnbull during the call, according to SKY News in Australia, and the US president hung up the phone on him after 25 minutes.
Trump continued to rail against the refugee deal in a tweet sent Wednesday night.
“Do you believe it? The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia. Why? I will study this dumb deal!” Trump tweeted.
Here we get the New York Post continuing the lie that these are ‘refugees.’ If they are legitimate refugees they are Australia’s problem!
The deal, however, includes refugees and not “illegal immigrants,” as Trump claimed.
The refugees in the agreement have fled Iraq, Iran, Sudan and Somalia. They have been living in facilities on islands off the coast of Australia.
***This business of using refugees as pawns in political deals must stop. In April 2012I first testified to the US State Department and gave ten reasons why there needed to be a moratorium on refugee resettlement and this is #7:
7) Congress needs to specifically disallow the use of the refugee program for other purposes of the US Government,especially using certain refugee populations to address unrelated foreign policy objectives—Uzbeks, Kosovars, Meshketians and Bhutanese (Nepalese) people come to mind.
So come on Congress, get to work! We know you are hiding behind Trump!
