News roundup February 8, 2017

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 8, 2017

Editor:  Because the issue continues to be hot (and I’m getting so many new readers)—swamped with e-mails, facebook messages, phone calls to return, media requests to respond to, and comments to posts etc.—I am taking some time today to clean up my mess.

Update: LOL! I am reading e-mails including hate mail.  One, who hates Trump and me, sent his screed with one of those privacy notices at the bottom and reminded me that I was not permitted to post it.  What a chicken!


The number of articles involving refugees is exploding!  Here are just some from the last day or so for your reading ‘pleasure.’

And, btw, a request for information from a grassroots activist reminds me to remind you to see ‘FAQs! Finding stuff’ at the top of this page, click here.  You can find a link to your state refugee coordinators, contact information for your city’s refugee resettlement contractors, and a link to a post about ‘ten things town needs to know’ among other useful information.

To all of my new readers, you might want to use our search window and enter your state’s name to see what we have written about it over the years.  Also, if you want to see everything I have said on the Trump EO, see my category Trump Watch! by clicking here.  My statement to reporters is here.

Below are ten articles, in no particular order of importance, to see today!  (I may add to this list as the day goes on!)

  1. Re: Article: White House Weighs Terror Designation for Muslim Brotherhood: The Muslim organization in America most closely connected with the Muslim Brotherhood is C.A.I.R. It has established satellites in many colleges and universities across our country, and is attempting (and succeeding in many cases) to brainwash and soften American youth to embrace Islam as a mainstream religion, which, of course, it is certainly NOT. America has been at war with Islam since we became a nation; and the poor educations our children have been receiving have ill-prepared them to know or understand the dangers facing our country today as a result of that softer approach to a very serious and dangerous enemy to America’s future. Islam is plotting to overthrow America from within by infiltration. Declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization is a necessary step in defining our enemies. Declaring C.A.I.R. a terrorist organization would be the logical second step. Hopefully, America has the resolve to carry out this movement toward ridding our nation of Islam. The education of our children has fallen to the hands of Betsy DeVos now. She MUST include in her plans a thorough and realistic education of American and world history as it relates to the dangers of Islam. American youth fully aware of who and what Muslims represent will be Americas greatest strength for future generations in combatting an international foe.
