UNHCR freak-out as Balkan states start to balk

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 20, 2015

Invasion of Europe news….

This story is confusing to me.  Actually it discusses THE big question I have, and I have not seen any good explanation for what could happen.

migrant route map

First, we hear reports that Sweden and Germany are closing their borders.  If that is so, and is happening already (or will happen), eventually what will become of all those migrants working their way northward?  Won’t they build up as water might behind a dam?

Maybe these Balkan states are getting ready for that inevitable outcome.

Earlier this morning I saw this confusing (to me) report at the UNHCR website, here.    So I looked for a more understandable news story and found this one at The Guardian.    It still doesn’t answer my question, but does help to lay out the problem.

Have a quick look at the UNHCR interactive map that shows the migrant flow on a daily basis (yesterday 4,499 new refugees arrived in Greece) and imagine if the spigot gets shut off at the German/Austrian border or the Austria/Slovenia border, then what?  All of those flowing northward will inevitably pile up in those states ‘downstream’ right?

And, I guess what those countries downstream are saying is that they don’t want thousands of economic migrants (they are NOT refugees) piled up in their countries.  But, they will get a logjam of legitimate asylum seekers anyway.  EU leaders should have stopped the boats months ago, it all seems too little too late to me!

Here is what The Guardian is reporting:

Countries along the Balkan migration trail have begun refusing to admit people of certain nationalities, amid a backlash against refugees in the aftermath of the Paris attacks last Friday.

Humanitarian workers active along the borders of Croatia, Serbia and Macedonia reported that refugees and migrants from countries other than Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq were now being stopped, raising the spectre of a migrant logjam in Greece.

The move comes after Slovenia, the most northerly country along the trail, suddenly tried to return 168 Moroccan migrants to Croatia on Thursday, in the first major development along the Balkan migration route since Hungary shut its border in September.  [Moroccan’s are not refugees, they are not being persecuted!—ed]

The decision sparked panic among the countries to Slovenia’s south, who feared that Slovenia was about to block access to anyone who could not easily prove their need for refugee status, and consequently turned back all migrants from Africa and southern Asia.

Slovenia said on Thursday afternoon it had not made any permanent decisions, and promised to admit refugees as long as Germany and Austria continued to subsequently take them. But a police spokesman confirmed that Slovenia would discuss with its Balkan neighbours how to limit the flow of so-called economic migrants in the future.

More here.

The great build up behind a dam seems inevitable to me.  One day Germany will stop the flow and surely Austria will too then and the pile up will happen in those countries less able to manage any of this invasion.  Is anyone planning for this likely outcome?

Breaking news: New Islamic terror attack underway in Mali, hostages

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 20, 2015

Religion of Peace strikes again!

It is very early, but reports are that any hostages who can recite passages from the Koran are freed.

From the BBC (minutes ago):

Gunmen have launched an attack on the Radisson Blu Hotel in the centre of Mali’s capital, Bamako, with three hostages reported to have been killed.

Two people have locked in 140 guests and 30 employees in “a hostage-taking situation”, the hotel’s US owners said.

Gunmen entered the hotel, which is popular with expat workers shooting, and shouting “God is great!” in Arabic.

A Malian army commander told the AP news agency that about 20 hostages have been freed.

Those hostages able to recite verses of the Koran were being freed, a security source has told Reuters news agency.

Breitbart has minute by minute updates here.

Breaking news from France 24: Eight suspected terrorists arrested in Turkey posing as “refugees”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 18, 2015

Invasion of Europe news…..

Everybody is pretty jumpy (assume you are watching news about the terrorist take-down in Paris last night), so not exactly sure where this story is going.  But, for now, something is very suspicious about these eight arrested in Istanbul a few hours ago.

Obama and Erdogan

Obama with pal Turkish Pres. Recep Tayyip Erdogan. I would love to know if in their recent meeting Obama had the guts to ask him why his country is allowing the launch of boats that bring ‘refugees’ to Europe by the thousands every day. If Turkey stopped the boats there would be no invaders arriving in Greece!

From France 24:

Turkish police detained eight suspected members of the Islamic State jihadist (IS) group, state media said Wednesday, adding they were planning to sneak into Europe posing as refugees.

Counter-terror police detained the suspects in Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport after they flew in from the Moroccan city of Casablanca on Tuesday, the official Anatolia news agency reported.

The police found a hand-written note on one of the suspects detailing a migration route from Istanbul to Germany via Greece, Serbia and Hungary, including smuggler boats across the Mediterranean Sea, as well as several train and bus journeys.

The eight men told police that they were just tourists who had been planning to spend a few days in Istanbul and had booked rooms at a hotel, but no reservations were found under their names.

Turkey is the main launching point for migrants coming to Europe, and currently hosts over two million Syrian refugees.

Watch for more news today on this and let me know if you see any updates.

Our ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive is here.  Go here and see the interactive map of the daily movement of migrants toward Germany. Yesterday over 3,800 arrived in Greece from Turkey.  BTW, Turkey is one of our major processing countries for refugees entering the US.

Carson and Cruz, first Presidential candidates to speak out on Paris slaughter—say no Syrian refugees to America

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 14, 2015

There may be others by now, but here is the first story I’m seeing before dawn today reporting on reactions by US Presidential candidates.  ***Update*** Here is a story at Breitbart that must have been posted before terror erupted in Paris last night—see where the Presidential candidates were yesterday afternoon BP (before Paris).  Bush, Kasich and Rubio all said they want MORE refugees.

***Update #2***  Mediaite reported on Ann Coulter tweets last night (after Paris):  “Donald Trump was elected President tonight,” here.  Paris may in fact have been a clarifying moment for many—try to imagine each of the 2016 candidates as President of the US if a similar horror happens here.  Who would you wish to be in the Oval Office?

From Buzzfeed:

carson cruz

Senator Ted Cruz and Dr. Ben Carson: No Syrian refugees should be admitted to US. Where is your candidate?  Let us know and I’ll update this post.

Following the deadly attacks in Paris Friday night, two prominent Republicans have called for the United States to table plans to accept thousands of Syrian refugees, citing terror concerns.

Sen. Ted Cruz wrote in a statement on Friday that the U.S. needs to “immediately declare a halt to any plans to bring refugees that may have been by ISIS to the United States.” Cruz has raised security concerns before about the prospect of accepting more refugees at this point from Syria.

Presidential candidate Ben Carson said in Orlando, Florida, that Congress should act to block the Obama administration’s plan to accept more refugees.

“If we’re going to be bringing 200,000 people over here from that region — if I were one of the leaders of the global jihadist movement and I didn’t infiltrate that group of people with my people, that would be almost malpractice,” Carson said, according to the Washington Post.

Congress can act to block Obama’s Muslim migration plan (refugee resettlement) in just a few weeks as Congress must act by December 11th to fund the government through fiscal year 2016 (this is separate from the dept ceiling issue of just a few weeks ago).

Congress could do its job for once by using the POWER OF THE PURSE to restrain Obama!

***Update*** This is what you should tell Congress to do!  Cut the funding!

They will pounce on Carson for the 200,000 number, however…..

As for Carson’s mention of the 200,000, note he said “from the region.”  It isn’t that high for one year, but Obama was talking about 2016 and 2017 when he said 85,000 refugees this year and 100,000 next year.  Don’t forget we are taking tens of thousands of other Muslim refugees from Iraq, Somalia, Burma and Afghanistan in that number as well—it is not just Syrians—from the region.

Consider that you rarely hear of the 30,000 plus coming as asylum seekers annually by first getting across our borders illegally or overstaying a visa and then asking for asylum.  Then there is Temporary Protected Status and that astounding monstrosity—the Diversity Visa Lottery—which brings in another 50,000 legal migrants a year, many from countries that hate us!  And, we haven’t even mentioned student visas!

So before someone latches (with criticism) on Carson’s high number, demand that the Administration give an accounting of how many Muslim migrants are being admitted legally to the US each year!  It is probably approaching 200,000, but no one (on the outside) knows for sure.

For more on the 2016 Presidential candidates see our category entitled, ‘2016 Presidential campaign.‘  (We have older categories for both the 2008 and 2012 campaigns as they related to refugees and immigration generally.)  I was surprised to see that we have already written 91 posts on the 2016 campaign.   Without a doubt, immigration is THE issue for 2016!

Lucky Europe! Louseborne Relapsing Fever among East African Refugees, Italy, 2015

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 11, 2015

That is the title of an article at the Centers for Disease Control which reminds us that it isn’t just the Islamic terrorists that Europe has to worry about, but diseases that had long been eradicated in advanced western countries.   Lucky taxpayers too!

More ‘Invasion of Europe’ news……

From the CDC:

During June 9–September 30, 2015, five cases of louseborne relapsing fever were identified in Turin, Italy. All 5 cases were in young refugees from Somalia, 2 of whom had lived in Italy since 2011. Our report seems to confirm the possibility of local transmission of louse-borne relapsing fever.

Louseborne relapsing fever (LRF) was once widely distributed in all geographic areas, including Europe and North America, occurring in association with poverty and overcrowding. In Europe, it virtually disappeared after World War I in parallel with improved living conditions that led to substantially decreased body lice infestations in humans (1). Currently, LRF is reported mostly from Ethiopia and surrounding countries, where it is endemic (2): in this region, it is an extremely common infection with substantial mortality. The causative agent is the spirochete bacterium Borrelia recurrentis. In nature, the only relevant vector is the body louse, which feeds only on humans; no other reservoir for this infection is known (1,3). The incubation period is 3–12 days. We report 5 cases of LRF in refugees to Italy from East Africa that occurred during 2015.


Italy has recently received large numbers of refugees from East Africa, particularly from Somalia. These refugees come from and travel through countries where B. recurrentis is endemic; along the way, they are often sheltered in crowded conditions with very poor hygienic facilities. Two of the patients reported here indicated that, while staying in Libya, they were held with many other persons in a close environment, and all refugees housed together reported severe itching.

Many of these refugees enter Italy through Sicily, from where they are sent to reception centers throughout the country. Some of these reception centers have grown to substantial size and now house a more stable population, with continuous input of new arrivals. In these conditions, local transmission can occur with a possible risk for epidemics: 2 of the 5 patients reported here were long-term residents in Italy, and they denied recent travel to Africa, so they probably acquired the infection while being housed in the same facilities as the newly arrived refugees. Although it is possible that they denied recent travel for fear of legal consequences, they are unlikely to have had the opportunity to travel out of Europe for economic reasons.

Note to Antonio Guterres! Terrorists do use refugees as cover to get into Europe

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 10, 2015

When we attended the Georgetown gig the week before last, the UNHCR Antonio Guterres brought the audience to laughter as he went through a little pantomime about why on earth would an Islamic terrorist bother to get into the migrant stream flooding Europe when he might simply fly in, to say, Germany.


Chuckles reverberated through the auditorium at Georgetown University Law School on October 29 when UNHCR Guterres explained in detail why it would be ridiculous for a terrorist to infiltrate the migrant flow to Europe…. yuk! yuk! yuk!

Surprise! Not! We see that in fact an Al-Qaeda bigwig did attempt to get into Italy hidden among ‘refugees.’

Here is one of several accounts, this one from Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily.

I want you to pay particular attention to the fact that only because he had been PREVIOUSLY FINGERPRINTED was he caught.  So the next time you hear a US State Department official say with all seriousness that refugees are screened using “biographic and biometric data” for security screening—remember if there is no database with names and fingerprints (the most common biometric information) they have no way of cross-checking anyone, let alone the hundreds of thousands of migrants on the move out of Africa and the Middle East.


Warnings about terrorists infiltrating the ranks of the Muslim boat people washing ashore daily on Europe’s beaches are no longer just warnings.

For the second time in the past few months, a known terrorist with direct ties to an international terror organization has been caught trying to enter Italy posing as an asylum seeker.


Tunisian-born Ben Nasr Mehdi came to Italy on migrant boat from the failed state of Libya (thanks Hillary!).

Tunisian-born Ben Nasr Mehdi was discovered among 200 refugees in a migrant boat off the coast of Sicily on Oct. 4. He was first arrested in Italy in 2007 and sentenced to seven years imprisonment for plotting terror attacks with a group that has since been linked to ISIS. He tried to return to Italy last month in a boat that was attempting to cross the Mediterranean from Libya.

But authorities tried to hide the story, fearing their political opponents would use it to create “panic” among the population, the German channel n-tv reported. The story finally got out several weeks after Mehdi was detained last week.

“This is a totally predictable story to everyone but Angela Merkel and her supporters in Europe (which group includes most of the EU governments and media),” wrote blogger Thomas Lifson for the American Thinker.

Although he gave a false name, migration officers identified Mehdi through finger print records, according to the Independent.


If he had not already been arrested and convicted, he would not have had fingerprints in the terrorist database.

Continue reading here.

On October 29th, at Georgetown, wouldn’t Guterres already have been aware of the Italian arrest on October 4?  How do these people look at themselves in the mirror?

Denmark: Sex education for wannabe refugee rapists

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 1, 2015

Invasion of Europe news…..

This is not a joke!

From (hat tip: Joanne):

REFUGEES seeking asylum in Denmark may soon be required to take mandatory courses in sex education. [It is a no-no to rape our girls—ed]

The New York Post reports that the initiative gained steam last weekend, after three Eritrean men were arrested for allegedly raping a 25-year-old Eritrean woman in Hjørring, Metroexpress reported.

Five other asylum seekers were charged with rape there last year, the site noted.

Copenhagen’s parliament expected to support of the mandatory courses in what constitutes sexual consent, and all parties across the board are in favour of the effort to help integrate foreigners into Danish society.

Go here for more.

For all of our previous news on the Invasion of Europe, click here.  Denmark news is here.

Go here for the latest UNHCR report:  at present 65% of the migrants reaching Europe are men (earlier it was 75%).  We are told that 744,175 migrants arrived in 2015.  And, if 65% are men, that means 483,713 men could potentially be looking for women!

Hungarian Prime Minister: Soros behind invasion of Europe

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 31, 2015

I’ve thought this very same thing!

More ‘Invasion of Europe’ news…..

We have written several stories over the last few years about Soros involvement in various countries, here, here, and here promoting the rights of Somalis as they colonize Scandinavia.

See also news about Soros’ handbook for Muslim invaders to Europe, here.

hillary and soros

Never, never forget that Hillary and Soros are soulmates!

From Bloomberg Business:

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban accused billionaire investor George Soros of being a prominent member of a circle of “activists” trying to undermine European nations by supporting refugees heading to the continent from the Middle East and beyond.

“His name is perhaps the strongest example of those who support anything that weakens nation states, they support everything that changes the traditional European lifestyle,” Orban said in an interview on public radio Kossuth. “These activists who support immigrants inadvertently become part of this international human-smuggling network.”

Rights groups have criticized Orban for building a razor-wire fence on the border, tightening asylum laws and boosting his support among voters with anti-immigrant rhetoric. Soros, who was born in Hungary and is one of the biggest philanthropists in eastern Europe via his foundations and university, gives grants to organizations that provide legal assistance to asylum seekers.

Soros said in an e-mailed statement that a six-point plan published by his foundation helps “uphold European values” while Orban’s actions “undermine those values.”

Go here to read Soros’ plan.

And remember Hillary and the girls share much of the blame for the ‘Invasion of Europe’ from Libya.

Did your state get Somalis in October? Minnesota number one destination!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 31, 2015

That Minnesota is the state receiving the most Somalis is no surprise as the US State Department and its contractors work to help create the new Somalia in Minnesota.

Since I was checking numbers this morning, see Syrian refugees in previous post, I thought I might check Somalis too.  (Of course all Somalis are Muslims, or almost all of them.)

595 in the month of October were distributed around the US.

Go here to see how many Somalis we have admitted since the mid 1980s and ask why the heck are we still bringing them in here?

And, go here to see where I’m getting this data.

map Somalis Oct



Here are the top ten states for Somali resettlement for the first month of FY2016 (some numbers aren’t clear on the map):

Minnesota (80)

Arizona (73)

New York (51)

Texas (47)

Ohio (42)

Massachusetts (31)

Pennsylvania (29)

Kentucky (27)

Missouri (25)

Washington (23)

Minnesota pay attention!

Then I decided to check where they went in Minnesota in the last 4 weeks and the numbers surprised me (I think it will surprise Minnesotans more!).  It was only two weeks ago that Minnesota Governor Dayton caused a stir when he said if you don’t like the Somali migration to Minnesota, find another state in which to live!  BTW, infidel Dayton won’t have a political future in the state once the Muslim population reaches a certain level.

Of the 80 who were placed in Minnesota in the last 4 weeks, here (below) is where they went. If 80 (or so) continue to be resettled in MN this year (FY2016), the state will see another nearly 1,000 needy Somalis arrive from Africa and elsewhere in the world (in addition to 1,000-2,000 secondary Somali migrants from other parts of the US that regularly arrive in MN as part of the colonization of the state).

Mankato (1)

Marshall (4)

Minneapolis (33)

Richfield (1)

Rochester (1)

Saint Cloud (32)

St. Paul (1)

Willmar (7)

Meanwhile the UNHCR is returning Somalis to Somalia from camps in Kenya, so why do we still have to bring them here?

Hillary (and the girls) are to blame for Libyan hellhole, European invasion

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2015

A trip down memory lane….

As I listened to testimony yesterday at the Benghazi hearing I was reminded of the many posts I’ve written over the years about how Hillary was directly involved in the destruction of the Libyan state that ultimately led to the use of that country as an important launch pad for the Mediterranean invasion of Europe by tens of thousands of Africans and Middle Easterners.


Hillary, rice, power

Hillary admitted yesterday that in 2011 Obama was reluctant to follow Europe’s lead and get involved in Libya, but that she marshaled the forces (including Susan Rice and Samantha Power) to persuade Obama to help overthrow Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Ultimately, she said yesterday, it was the President’s decision thereby tossing blame back on Obama when the results of her actions have proven so disastrous. Ambassador Stevens and the others who died might not have been there if it weren’t for those “loose weapons.”


Here is one of our many posts on Hillary:  This one is from December 2014, but we had predicted in 2011 that Hillary’s (and yes, she admitted it yesterday that she was the leading Administration force for the overthrow of Gadaffi) misadventure in Libya was leading to a refugee crisis of massive proportion.

Hillary and the girls (dubbed the “humanitarian Vulcans” by some in the White House) said it was our “responsibility to protect” the Libyan people that underpinned our imperative to join the Europeans in overthrowing (and killing) Gadaffi.  This is what I said in December of 2011.  So much for the poor Libyan people now!

Watch for it!   The ‘responsibility to protect’ means we go to war and create a whole new bunch of refugees that need to be resettled in the West!

April 2011:  read what we said about the three witches, here.  Go here for all of our posts mentioning Hillary and Libya.
