NYT allows wealthy British subject to lecture us about “fundamental American values”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 12, 2017

I want to scream!  I missed this op-ed from January 27th, but the International Rescue Committee is retweeting it this morning and it caught my eye.

***Update***  Look at this ridiculous piece in The Guardian about Miliband (barf!). But, we learn one interesting bit of news—he wants a big job at the UN.

david-miliband-and-hillar-001

Hillary had a “crush” on Miliband. There was even a story floating around that said she promised him a job in her new ‘Clinton Administration’. Here she is with Miliband in his Foreign Secretary days. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2009/nov/17/hillary-clinton-david-miliband-interview

Here we have David Miliband, the former Labour Party British Foreign Secretary lecturing Donald Trump about “fundamental American values” after Trump announced his Executive Order to keep America safe by temporarily halting immigration from known terrorist hotspots.

And, to make matters worse Miliband’s organization pulls in over $450 million in government grants every year (click here). Some of that money is used to quietly place refugees in American towns and cities and give George Soros Freedom Awards!

Miliband’s annual salary as CEO of the IRC is a whopping $591,846!  But, Leftist media like the NYT never reports any of this!

Here is Miliband’s NYT Op-ed:

President Trump’s executive order suspending the entire resettlement program for 120 days and banning indefinitely the arrival of Syrian refugees is a repudiation of fundamental American values, an abandonment of the United States’ role as a humanitarian leader and, far from protecting the country from extremism, a propaganda gift to those who would plot harm to America.

The next paragraph of Miliband’s Op-ed is a prime example of the selective information people like Miliband put out in their propaganda.

Yes, he is right that most of the refugees entering the US from Iran are non-Muslims (I say most because we do admit some Muslims, why from Iran?). However, he doesn’t tell you that almost 100% of the Syrians admitted to the US are Muslims of both Islamic sects, and only a tiny handful of the persecuted Christians are admitted.

In my data report, here yesterday, I told you that of a recent group of 402 Syrians admitted only 2 are Christians! 

Miliband continues…

The order also suggests that the resettlement program should make persecuted religious minorities a higher priority, implying that they have been neglected in the past. This is incorrect; existing law already places strong emphasis on religious persecution among the criteria for resettlement. For example, most of the refugees from Iran — a Muslim-majority country — who are resettled by my organization are not Muslim.

And, here we go again with this 36 month c***!  18-24 months was the number they previously used and now they are talking about 36 months for refugees waiting (not being screened for 18, 24, or 36 months).  And, in fact, in April 2016, the Obama Administration reduced the Syrian screening down to 3 months, see here.

They never mention that in October 2015 FBI Director Comey said here that there is no way to thoroughly screen the Syrians (and I maintain the Somalis either!) because they come from a failed state with NO RECORDS!

And, here, in September 2016, Senator Sessions and Cruz pulled testimony out of the Obama USCIS head that they must often RELY ON THE STRENGTH OF PERSONAL STORIES because they have no data on the refugee.

Nevertheless, Miliband continues to spin his propaganda!

Compared with other types of immigrants, refugees are the most thoroughly vetted group to enter the United States. The resettlement process can take up to 36 months and involves screenings by the Department of Homeland Security, the F.B.I., the Department of Defense, the State Department and the National Counterterrorism Center and United States intelligence community.

There is more, continue reading here if you want to get fired up for the day!

Does Donald Trump know he can cap refugee program now?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 12, 2017

You have surely heard all the numbers flying around this morning about how many refugees from the seven originally banned countries have entered the US.  The numbers vary somewhat based on what day (and even time of day) one checks the State Department data base at Wrapsnet.

tillerson-and-trump

Where is Secretary of State Tillerson? It is the DOS bringing those in from the original 7 countries of concern at an accelerated pace.

We heard a couple of days ago from Stephen Dinan at the Washington Times that 77% of the refugees admitted in the week following Judge Robarts’ decision are from the banned countries.

By the way, when I did numbers yesterday I went back to the day after the EO was issued (January 28th until yesterday) and the percentage was less than 50% from the 7 originally banned countries, so in recent days the Dept. of State has rushed in more from the seven targeted countries increasing the percentage.

Trying to recreate Dinan’s numbers for 2/3 to 2/9 I get 75% not 77%.  But, that small discrepancy doesn’t matter because it depends on when in the day on the 9th or even the 8th Dinan ran numbers.

But, that is not the point of this post!  

Just this morning Donald Trump tweeted that 72% came from those 7 terrorist-infested countries.

Does the President not know that it is the UN and his own State Department (DOS) admitting them? Does he not know that he has the power to reduce the cap (the ceiling) on the entire program right now?  He did reduce Obama’s proposal of 110,000 to 50,000, but he could go lower and stop this rush in from these countries.

As of today we are at 34,430! Cap it now at 35,000!

(35,000 is not that far off of Bush’s post 9/11 number of 39,554, see here)

This reduction, across the board, was not addressed in the recent court wrangling because Trump clearly has the power! (LOL! Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden and Jimmy Carter gave it to him in 1980!).

Of course a lowering of the ceiling won’t stop all those coming in from the seven terrorist hotspots, but the majority of those entering the US from Syria, Iraq, Somalia and Iran are through the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program.

Where is Tillerson? Where is Trump’s White House staff? Would someone tell him!

After all, the majority of Americans are on Trump’s side with this EO.

Majority of Americans support Trump immigration ‘ban’ from terror hotspots

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 12, 2017

You are not alone!

Check it out!  Vox (the website that LOL! featured my work recently, here) reports that the majority of Americans support President Trump’s Executive Order to keep us safe from immigrants coming from certain parts of the world—keep us safe from terrorists trying to enter the country.

But, if the pollsters throw in mumbo-jumbo about “refugees” and phrases like “in keeping with US’s founding principles” they get more respondents to oppose the order.   The key message that resonates is one that uses the word “terrorism.”

Read it here.  Very interesting as Vox sends a message to its mostly Leftwing and Open Borders readers on how to use certain language to make their case.

I haven’t seen anything like this on mainstream cable media have you?

Don’t waver Donald!

CNN and other Left-leaning news sites will show us non-stop clips of protesters opposing this EO making us all believe that we are in the minority, but never reveal that average Americans agree with Donald Trump on this! It is, as Trump says, “common sense!”

Sick of it? You can join like-minded Americans at upcoming rallies.  Go here (Spirit of America Rallies) and see if one is scheduled near you!
