Important free speech case involving Twitter moves forward

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 17, 2018

I first told you about the case filed by Jared Taylor (American Renaissance) against Twitter here in February.

Now we learn that Taylor’s lawsuit can advance as a California judge refuses Twitter’s effort to dismiss the case.

Twitter-Jail-300

Editor: I use Twitter almost daily and was steadily moving upward in follower numbers until a few months ago.  It isn’t my imagination, I know that Twitter is doing something (maybe shadow-banning to some of my 14 thousand followers) to keep my numbers down. So they don’t have to ban you outright as they did Taylor, they simply make sure you can’t expand your reach.

More of Australia’s rejected migrants headed to your American city

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 17, 2018

It has been quiet for awhile—months I believe—since we’ve heard of another shipment of Australia’s rejected asylum seekers to America in that dumb deal Obama made and Trump is continuing.

 

Manus island detainees

Some of these men are your new neighbors!

 

Unlike feckless European leaders, Australia’s government at the time, rightly and successfully, blocked the arrival of migrant boats about five years ago and apprehended those trying to break in to the country.  They were packed off to offshore island detention centers and efforts were made to get them to return to where they came from.

Most didn’t, and Obama rode to the rescue and said, sure, send these ‘refugees’ to America. 

(Readers, this is a completely unorthodox and possibly illegal use of the Refugee Admissions Program.)

None had arrived yet when Donald Trump first set foot in the White House, so he could have (should have!) stopped the airlift before it began.  He didn’t and they are coming to a town near you—mostly Muslims, mostly men, from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Burmese Rohingya.

New batch is on the way…

US war ship picks up 40 migrants off coast of Libya, now what?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 16, 2018

Overshadowed by the huge controversy surrounding the rescue boat Aquarius’ this past week, is the news that a US naval vessel has picked up 40 migrants off the coast of Libya, and as of this writing is stuck with them.

Other so-called ‘rescue boats’ won’t take them fearing that they will be blocked from landing in nearby European ports.

Could the illegal aliens be brought to the US?

Lewiston, ME: Man attacked by gang of Somali teens dies

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 16, 2018

We told you recently that roving gangs of Somali ‘children’ and teens were terrorizing park goers in the Somali capital of New England, see here.

Now someone is dead.

Donald Giusti died after a Somali refugee ‘youth’ smashed in his head with a brick.

Here is the brief article from the Lewiston Sun Journal that hints at a racial component but incredibly never mentions the ‘S’ word—Somali.   (Hat tip: Maine First)

In new age of ‘Aquarius’, Mama Merkel between a rock and a hard place

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 15, 2018

As you can tell, I am fascinated by the sea change in Europe seemingly brought on in less than one week after Italy blocked the landing of a so-called ‘rescue ship’ with more than 600 mostly African men and boys on board.

The ‘Aquarius’ was ultimately “welcomed” by Spain, but that won’t solve the EU migration crisis where frontline countries get the brunt of the invasion unless Socialist Spain wants to keep them and all the future migrants who will surely head that way now.

 

mama merkel sign

Mark Steyn astutely pointed out that Angela Merkel, like most European leaders, actually has no children—no personal stake in the future of German culture.   https://www.steynonline.com/7788/leading-by-example

 

For new readers to my ‘Invasion of Europe’ series, German Chancellor Angela Merkel created the recent migrant surge when she began ‘welcoming’ Middle Eastern and African refugees to Germany in 2015.

Germans aren’t producing enough children and she argues that they need young workers who would support old Germans in their dotage.  Yeh right!, sure they will!

The dark underbelly of refugee resettlement in the US—churches neglecting refugees, working with questionable landlords

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 14, 2018

When I first began writing this blog in July 2007, one of the issues that attracted my attention was the puzzling decision by the Virginia Council of Churches, working for major resettlement contractor Church World Service, to place refugees in one of the worst buildings in the worst section of Hagerstown, MD.

cws logo

But, here we are 11 years later and Church World Service has placed Congolese refugees in Greensboro, NC in housing that is managed by a company that has a record of many years of troubling business practices.

I’m sure CWS rejoinder is—well give us more taxpayer money and we will get them nicer apartments. 

And, I say, this was supposed to be a public-private partnership, so how about you, CWS, raising private money from your churches to help these Africans you placed (so that North Carolina meatpackers could have cheap compliant labor)!

‘Aquarius’ becomes the war cry of the Roman church against the new Italian government

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 13, 2018

Readers, when the Italian government held firm and sent the so-called ‘rescue ship’ Aquarius packing it drew the battle lines with the Italian Catholic Church—that is what the church is saying!

graph sea arrivals in italy

Hey Spain! You are next!

I’m writing about this story again today because it represents a critical juncture for the future of Europe.

There is hope (I think!) as I wrote a couple of days ago, here, for the survival of Western Civilization in its birthplace, but action to save it must be swift and happen NOW.

Here is the Crux headline (Taking the Catholic pulse):

Italian Church and new government finally face off over Aquarius

(The subtitle could be: The Catholic Church shows its daggers)

Afghan special immigrant visa (SIV) holders and families enter US in high numbers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 12, 2018

Maryland and Virginia are in the top five welcoming states…

state depart. seal

I’ve been told that the flow of these ‘special’ immigrants are helping to keep federal money flowing to the resettlement contractors*** as they are treated as refugees (but not counted as part of the 45,000 ceiling set by the President last September) and as such, the contractors are paid by the head for their work in resettling them.

Just now I checked Wrapsnet to see what those numbers looked like. I’ve written other posts on the topic before, here, so this is an update.

Prior to FY14 we admitted small numbers of the people that supposedly helped us in some capacity in Afghanistan, but the number began to skyrocket in FY14.

The top year so far, 16,866 Afghan SIV arrivals, was in President Trump’s first year in office.

Top states for Afghan resettlement (regular refugees and SIVs) from FY07 to the present were California (20,171), Texas (8,229), Virginia (7763), Washington (2,898) and Maryland (2,745).

Here are some partial screen shots. The whole graph obviously doesn’t fit on the page.

Top of graph:

Screenshot (509)

Note that the first column in white is the number of normal refugees we admitted and the second is the SIVs and their family members.

 

Bottom of graph:

Screenshot (510)

Unfortunately, you can’t see the far left with the names of the states.  The number in the dark column is the total number of refugees plus SIVs that went to each state.

 

 

The total number of Afghans admitted to the US, 60,623, above is from FY07 to the present. Less than 10,000 were determined to be refugees.

 

*** Here are the nine federal refugee contractors. They have been complaining as their regular paying client numbers (refugees) have declined, but it seems they have some taxpayer supplied funds coming in with this huge push to bring in Afghan ‘interpreters’ and their families.

The original Refugee Act of 1980, that set up this monstrosity, envisioned a public-private partnership that over the years has almost completely morphed in to a federal program.

The number in parenthesis is the percentage of their income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place the refugees (SIVs too) and get them signed up for their services (aka welfare)!  From most recent accounting, here.

Stalemate at sea ended: Spain welcomed over 600 migrants, mostly men, rejected by Italy, Malta

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 12, 2018

Yesterday I told you that the Italian government refused entry to a so-called “rescue ship” that had picked up over 600, mostly African illegal aliens, from waters off Libya.

Italy first!

These transport ships have had free passage to Italy for years, but all that is ending now that the Italians have elected a government willing to save Italy for Italians!

Will Susanna and Tommy turn the tide to save Europe?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 11, 2018

fake eyebrows

While the media is busy with the run-up to the show in Singapore, and prior to that the G7 in Canada that saw social media in a flutter over the failure of Justin’s fake eyebrow that came unglued in a presser attacking Trump (yes, apparently the prime minister of Canada augments his eyebrows with bushy black fake ones!), some monumental shift may have occurred in Europe in one week….

Is there still hope to stop the Invasion of Europe?

Here is what I see.
