What is wrong with Minnesota? A Scandal Trifecta….

“How dumb are we? Honestly, I think it is impossible to plumb the depths of our stupidity.”

(John Hinderaker at Powerline blog)


“A Scandal Trifecta” is what John Hinderaker at Powerline blog is calling the latest news from the state where ‘Minnesota nice’ takes on new meaning almost daily.

Sorry, I know a lot of good smart Minnesotans, but just now when I wrote about Sweden likely being the first European nation to fall to the Islamists, it struck me as interesting that Swedes in past centuries populated Minnesota…hmmm…is there some defect in the genes?  A gene that is driving people to succumb to invasion? A suicide gene?

One of my top posts in recent days is this one—You are old and white and we are taking over Minnesota!

suitcase with cash

Everyone has been sending me this latest news about millions in cash leaving Minnesota for Africa, much of it alleged to have been generated by welfare fraud perpetrated by a certain group of Africans the Minnesota nice people (the infidels) continue to welcome to the state.


I wrote about the daycare fraud mentioned in the latest news here and here in 2014 and 2015.

Here is Hinderaker at Powerline quoting from a local Fox 9 investigation:



In the Twin Cities, a local television station uncovers a far-reaching scandal: last year, more than $100 million in cash left the Twin Cities airport in carry-on luggage, bound for the Middle East and Africa:

This story begins at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where mysterious suitcases filled with cash have become a common carry-on.

On the morning of March 15, Fox 9 chased a tip about a man who was leaving the country. Sources said he took a carry-on bag through security that was packed with $1 million in cash. Travelers can do that, as long as they fill out the proper government forms.

Fox 9 learned that these cloak-and-dagger scenarios now happen almost weekly at MSP. The money is usually headed to the Middle East, Dubai and points beyond. Sources said last year alone, more than $100 million in cash left MSP in carry-on luggage.


Great. But the real scandal is where the money came from in the first place–welfare fraud:

2014: Yasmin Abdulle Ali (33) charged with 52 felony counts in day care fraud investigation. 

Five years ago the Fox 9 Investigators were first to report that daycare fraud was on the rise in Minnesota, exposing how some businesses were gaming the system to steal millions in government subsidies meant to help low-income families with their childcare expenses.

“It’s a great way to make some money,” Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said.

In order for the scheme to work, the daycare centers need to sign up low income families that qualify for child care assistance funding.

Surveillance videos from a case prosecuted by Hennepin County show parents checking their kids into a center, only to leave with them a few minutes later. Sometimes, no children would show up.

Either way, the center would bill the state for a full day of childcare.

Video from that same case shows a man handing out envelopes of what are believed to be kickback payments to parents who are in on the fraud.

Evidently welfare fraud in various forms is widespread in Minnesota’s Somali immigrant community. This is, I think, generally known, but the scale of fraud disclosed here is astonishing….

Hinderaker concludes with this:

How dumb are we? Honestly, I think it is impossible to plumb the depths of our stupidity.

I guess I shouldn’t be too hard on Minnesota nice people because at least this fraud is being investigated in your state.

I’ll bet that in other states—heavily populated with Somalis, California, Ohio, Maine, Washington and others—the investigations have not even begun!  

When you look back at my posts in 2014 and 2015 (linked above) note that I reported on the special federal grant programs (Office of Refugee Resettlement) for special people to set up “culturally appropriate” day care facilities for the refugee ‘community.’

If you have a lot of time, see my Minnesota archive here.  Someone needs to pull it all together in a book—Minnesota as the canary in a coal mine, just as Sweden is for Europe.

What can you do? 

Contact the White House and tell the President that there must be a nationwide Department of Justice investigation in to the suitcases full of cash leaving America for Africa and tell them to find out where the boodle is coming from.  Is it from state and federal taxpayer generosity?

The White House contact link is in upper right hand column here at RRW.

  1. From the U.S. State Department’s travel advisory page:

    “Do not travel to Somalia due to crime, terrorism, and piracy.

    Violent crime, such as kidnapping and murder, is common throughout Somalia, including in Puntland and Somaliland. Illegal roadblocks are also widespread.

    Terrorists continue to plot kidnappings, bombings, and other attacks in Somalia. They may attack with little or no warning, targeting airports and seaports, government buildings, hotels, restaurants, shopping areas, and other areas where large crowds gather and Westerners frequent, as well as government, military, and Western convoys…”

    So why are we bringing them to us? it is an act of the most unbelievable stupidity to bring a people so corrupt and predisposed to crime and terrorism to our country, and unleash them on our people. If the State Department has to warn us not to travel there because it is so dangerous, why are we bringing the very people who make it that way into our own communities, at our own expense? we see again that our safety and interests mean nothing when it comes to filling the never-ending demand for diversity that seems to have become our national agenda, an agenda so important and taken for granted that the government doesn’t even bother to consult us about it.



  2. That Powerline Blog is amazingly good – especially the posts by John Hinderaker.
    Thanks to Ann Corcoran for linking it – I always forget to look at the website.
    I am sure you are right A.C., that it is not just Minnesota – and not just Sweden either!
    Everyone behaves likes an ostrich about this, and sticks their head in the sand.
    In England, people in the villages pretend it is not happening. But they know it is, because they do go to the large towns and cities sometimes. Anyway, it is in the news every day, in one form or another. Often it is not bad news – it is good news about how well immigrants are doing – but this is even worse for the millions of natives who are struggling to make ends meet and have not had a pay rise for 10 years because there is no shortage of labour, in fact there is a glut of it.


  3. Minnesota may have the most Somalis, that’s bad but if one looks at the percentage of population that are Muslims, they are not in the top 10 states. So, a reality check is needed, I’m not sure if that lessens the problem but it should be said. The concentration is in that Keith Ellison Riverside district of Minneapolis. Also, if one researches this story, law enforcement, journalists are still looking into the claims. This needs to be brought to court. So, there numbers are not overwhelming but clearly, they are not wanted.


  4. We’ve had the same racket played out here in Australia, often with Muslim daycare centres signing up their own families for govt. subsidies. The federal govt. has exposed a few of these cases but is reluctant to give us full information.

  5. Since I do believe in ethnic tendencies, it isn’t difficult to consider that the “Minnesota nice” folks are just being what a lot of their Swedish, politically-correct, forbearers are/were. I think that the type of Christians they are has a lot to do with it, too, since a predominant amount of serious Protestants try to be humble, obedient and compliant. This is an easy set-up for both the state to regulate them, as well as for the dominant, and, authoritative, Islamic culture to bully them. Personally, I think that “growing a pair”, for both the American, and the native-born, Swedes, and, also Sweden, itself, would be a good idea. Being “passive-aggressive”, in this case, is not gonna work.

  6. Thank you Ann-this is addition to the insane grants provided to these “refugees” given to start up – you got it- their own “child care businesses.” These are not “loans” these “WOMEN” are given the money to start up these businesses to steal more of the American taxpayer’s money.
    I was astounded when I saw Catholic Charities listing of “business grants” given to deserving refugee women in Spokane. These businesses are set up specifically for the refugee population to watch their kids..
    Why do these families even need child care? Most of the women don’t work they stay at home-why can’t they watch their own kids! What about grandma sitting at home collecting social security? Cant she watch the kids?

  7. Saw this post:

    Somalis were put in Country as liberal/socialist fighting brigade to take the Upper Midwest. Where are the Feds in this matter, running around chasing phantom Russians while the Enemy is here.

  8. There seems to be an effort by the globalists to single out the people with the greatest genetic potential to oppose the NWO and reestablish western dominance over the world. The stereotypical Swede symbolizes everything they hate–blue-eyed, blonde-haired conquers, whose culture used to epitomize that of the warrior. I think that the globalists are literally trying to wipe out our genetic reserves, so we can never become the dominant culture again.


  9. this happens all over the country. I worked in a Colorado airport 2 years ago and we saw people leaving the country with cash stuffed into their underwear, or in their kids clothes, all the time. I’m talking thousands and thousands of dollars in cash. They are legally allowed to carry up to $10,000 in cash that is undeclared, but any amount over that, if they don’t declare it, it gets seized at the airport by TSA. However, many TSA agents don’t have the time to count it all.
    All of the people we saw who were leaving the country with cash were Hispanic or Mexican, or some other ethnic origin (not American).

    I saw a news report on this last week as well, but there was no mention of how the people who are carrying the cash are not Americans, and they are taking it to a foreign country.

    They are bleeding this country dry. Does anyone realize how many billions of dollars have been stolen from America by now? We are going bankrupt slowly, without even realizing it.
    Meanwhile, every 3rd world country in the world is being enriched at our expense. Our children will not have Social Security to rely upon because it has been STOLEN from them

  10. “Minnesota as the canary in a coal mine, just as Sweden is for Europe.”

    After 28 years in CA, my MN-born husband and I (Montana-born) relocated to west central Minnesota – 25 years ago.

    We were horrified at the cluelessness of the generational, 100-yr farm type residents. Some of them living a half mile off I-94, they were either unaware of or completely denied the evident activity of gangs and drug trafficking. The sheriff in Fargo at the time was wide awake, and actually made a trip to California to hit the streets of Comptom with the local LEOs to get some counsel from those familiar with the ground battles.

    The Minnesota Nice thing has destroyed Minnesota because it is so blasted undiscriminating – eager to please and never offend – these are people who would serve coffee and rolls to the guys holding their family hostage. And that’s exactly what they are doing.

    I learned that the majority of lifetime Lutheran in the area where we lived thought it was absolutely HORRIBLE that we thought all that cash spent on Somali and Bosnian refugees getting off the planes in Grand Forks was not a good use of taxpayer dollars.

    They have taken virtue-signaling to a literally suicidal level.

    And THAT WAS 25 YEARS AGO. Stupid has such nightmare results.

  11. Reblogged this on MinnStar and commented:
    We have the most corrupt leadership imaginable, I guess. No fiscal leadership accountability along with inequality for the indigenous poor. Our tax money flows to other unfriendly countries and unknown parts of the globe and yet Keith Ellison and Tom Emmer make sure it continues unabated.
