Germany: Police raid refugee shelters thwarting ISIS terror plot

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 5, 2016

Surprise! Not!

Mama Merkel wants workers, gets terrorists!  This is probably just the beginning.

Invasion of Europe news…..

From Deutsche Welle (hat tip: ‘mjazzguitar’):

 

Alexanderplatz,_S-_und_Fernbahnhof_Alexanderplatz_02

They allegedly planned to attack a busy shopping area—Alexanderplatz described here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexanderplatz

German police arrested three Algerians suspected of ties to the “Islamic State” militant group and of having planned a terrorist attack in Berlin. Other suspects were questioned during police raids but not arrested.

Suspects encountered during a number of police raids conducted in the early morning hours Thursday had allegedly been planning to meet in Berlin to carry out terrorist attacks. It is not known how close their plans were to completion, but German police said they believed all the suspects had active links to IS.

Martin Steltner, spokesman for the Berlin prosecutor’s office, declined to comment on any further details from the ongoing police investigation but said that prosecutors were aware of a “concrete” plan to target the capital. The German newspaper “Bild” meanwhile claimed that the suspects had been plotting to attack Berlin’s Alexanderplatz, a central shopping and entertainment square as well as a major regional transportation hub. Checkpoint Charlie, the former border crossing between East and West Berlin, was discussed as potential target, according to the German dpa news agency.

About 450 officers were deployed in Berlin during the operation, which occurred as parts of Germany started a week of celebrations marking Carnival amid beefed-up security measures.

[….]

The coordinated police raids carried out on Thursday morning took place at four residences and two businesses in Berlin, a refugee shelter in the town of Attendorn in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, a Hanover refugee shelter and a number of other locations in the city.

NOT refugees!

But, it is no surprise that they took advantage of the flood of migrants as Angela Merkel “welcomed” over a million to Germany in a year.  And, heck, ISIS said all along it would use the refugee flow to infiltrate Europe.  The really stupid leaders of Europe must not have believed them.

The alleged involvement of Algerian nationals in an IS plot is expected to put North African refugees in the spotlight once more, after they were blamed for a series of sexual assaults during New Year’s Eve festivities in Cologne. German Chancellor Angela Merkel had announced recently that refugees from North Africa, including those coming from Algeria, would likely be deported as Germany classified Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria “safe” countries of origin.

Then, go here, for a rapidly growing body of work on Germany. The actions of German leaders should be studied by all who want to avoid the cultural and economic destruction of their countries via mass migration.

France bans protest march at Calais

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 4, 2016

More Invasion of Europe news….

Not a good idea.  As I see it, these free speech marches serve as a critical valve on the pressure building in communities across Europe. Closing the valve will only cause the steam to build to a level of much greater power—potentially explosive power.

We haven’t mentioned Calais much lately, but if you look back at many previous posts you will see that this encampment of mostly Middle Eastern and African migrants has been growing for years as they press for being allowed to enter the UK where they see the taxpayer-funded ‘services’ more attractive than what is available to them in France.

Pegida in the Netherlands

Here is the latest news from The Local:

The French government has banned public demonstrations in Calais days before the anti-Islam group Pegida had planned to march through the town.

Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve announced the ban on protests “that pose a threat to public order” days before Pegida were hoping to march through Calais.

“I have asked the Pas-de-Calais prefect to proceed with the banning of all protests that have the potential of disrupting public order, no matter who the organizers are,” Cazeneuve said.

The minister said he was referring to all groups who seek “to create tension, division and violence”.

Calais crossing

The northern port town is home to between 4,000 and 6,000 refugees who are living in squalor in a makeshift camp on the edge of town.

Tensions have risen in recent weeks with clashes between migrants desperate to make a bid to get to the UK and the French riot police who block their path.

More here.

Meanwhile….

Germany is building camps with high fences for its trouble-making migrants, it is time for all of the European governments to do the same.

Minnesota Somali refugee terrorist connected to San Bernardino slaughter?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 6, 2015

Fox News was just reporting a few minutes ago (about 9:30 a.m.) that this man (we told you about him before, here) may be linked to the Farook family killers.  I’m doing something else right now, but when more news is available, we will update this.

No surprise for all of you following the Somali refugee terror activities here in the US and abroad.

Stop talking about Syrians for a minute and remember that we bring in about 500 Somalis a month to live in your towns at this very minute!  (See data here).

Don’t get hung up on screening! It’s the second generation immigrant jihadists we must worry about

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 3, 2015

There is so much talk about the screening process for Muslim refugees that I’m afraid we are losing sight of the fact that it’s the second generation (can you say San Bernardino slaughter) that we should be concerned about.

Minnesota Men…..

Realistically, how are we going to stop those Islamic terrorists (to save our children and grandchildren)?

There is only one way and it starts with halting all Muslim migration to America and then it requires a ruthless surveillance of all those in here already (like it or not!  Trump is right!) until any vestige of the Islamic supremacist mindset is stamped out.

This week’s issue of the Weekly Standard reminds us of the huge US Somali population (growing by the hundreds each month), that has been the seed community from which ISIS, and before that, Al-Shabaab has been drawing its new recruits.

From the Weekly Standard (Minnesota Men indeed!).  Hat tip: Judy

If you get your news from the headlines, you can be excused for thinking that “Minnesota men” pose a special risk of taking up the terrorist jihad at home and abroad. As the Wall Street Journal reported this past April, for example, “U.S. charges six Minnesota men with trying to join ISIS.” The “Minnesota men” featured in such headlines are almost invariably drawn from Minnesota’s swelling population of Somali Muslim immigrants. The state—mostly the metropolitan Twin Cities area—is home to 35,000 such immigrants, the largest Somali population in North America.

Starting in the 1990s, the State Department directed thousands of refugees from Somalia’s civil war to Minnesota. As Kelly Riddell pointed out in the Washington Times this past February, in Minnesota these refugees “can take advantage of some of America’s most generous welfare and charity programs.” Riddell quoted Professor Ahmed Samatar of Macalester College in St. Paul: “Minnesota is exceptional in so many ways but it’s the closest thing in the United States to a true social democratic state.” After a dip in 2008, the inflow of Somalis has continued unabated and augmented by Somalis from other states. If it takes a village, Minnesota has what it takes.

Continue reading here as the Weekly Standard chronicles several important cases in Minnesota.

And, do you know why the number dipped in 2008?  That was the year that the US State Department basically said ‘oopsie! we admitted thousands of Somalis illegally who had lied on applications to get in.’   Consequently, the resettlement of Somali families was put on hold for a couple of years!

How many Somalis have we resettled?  And, why are we still bringing them in by the thousands each year?

So, how many did we admit in the last 25 years or so?  Go to this post we wrote in 2008 (and updated through the years).

In the first six weeks of FY 2016 we have already admitted another 827 Somalis (surely the number has passed the 1,000 mark in recent days).

You must call your US Senators and Member of Congress today, tomorrow and maybe early next week!  It is not just about the Syrians!!!  And, it’s not just about making sure the ones coming in are ‘screened’ when evidence tells us it’s not mom and dad who we should fear, but their children as the second generation is not assimilating, but become more devout (aka radicalized!).

Action Alert:  Call your members of the House and Senate at 202-224-3121 and ask them to vigorously oppose the Refugee Resettlement funding contained in the Omnibus Spending Bill that will be voted on by 12-11-15! Please call by this Friday, Dec. 4th.

New study: Refugee children arrive with many health issues, diseases

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 28, 2015

For all of you in the medical field and who are also concerned about refugees, more information is available.

This is from US News.  Maybe we should be suspending the refugee program for the health risks it poses that might in the end be greater than the terrorism risks!

TB screening

Almost the last line was the shocking part.  The article suggests that health screening should be done before the refugee enters the country.  I thought that is what was ALREADY happening!

The news is from a new report published Nov. 12 in the American Journal of Public Health.  I didn’t search for the full report, but you should. Remember we (taxpayers) are paying for their medical treatment!  Emphasis below is mine.

FRIDAY, Nov. 27, 2015 (HealthDay News) — The main health problems of refugee children from Asia and Africa when they arrive in the United States are outlined in a new study.

Based on screenings of more than 8,100 young refugees between 2006 and 2012, the top health concerns were hepatitis B, tuberculosis, parasitic worms, high blood lead levels and anemia, the study found.

The refugees, all younger than 19, were from Bhutan, Myanmar, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Iraq and Somalia. The screenings were conducted shortly after they arrived in Colorado, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Washington state.

In general, these conditions were more common among children from the [African countries—ed] Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia and Somalia, and lower among those from Iraq, researchers said. [Although we haven’t talked about it because Middle Eastern refugees are making the news, Obama’s 2016 plan calls for our African numbers to increase by 7,000 this year.—ed]

Among refugees from Myanmar [aka Burma—ed], those who came to the United States from Thailand had more diseases than those who came by way of Malaysia, the researchers found.

“Understanding the health profiles of children from different countries allows us to provide better counseling for parents, prioritize specific tests and ensure that we give children a healthy start here in the U.S.,” study lead author Dr. Katherine Yun, a pediatrician in the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s PolicyLab and Refugee Health Program, said in a hospital news release.

The findings may have a number of implications.

Obama-Obamacare-Meme-11

It’s a good thing we have Obamacare to take care of all of these “New Americans!”

“Our data suggest that the existing [U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] medical screening guidelines remain relevant and hold great value,” Yun said.

“We also recommend that multistate public health collaborations monitor the health of newly arrived refugee children, along with resources available to them,” she added.  [Refugees move, sometimes shortly after arrival and this would imply those diagnosed, with say TB etc., may not be tracked.—ed]

Health officials should analyze these data in a timely manner, because refugee populations change significantly over time, she said.

Also, it may be more cost-effective to conduct health screenings of refugees before they leave their countries, Yun said.

Asylum seekers NOT screened upon arrival!

I did spend a few minutes visiting the CDC website and came across this (below).  Remember I told you here the other day that we now have tens of thousands of asylum seekers coming across our borders illegally or overstaying a visa and we grant asylum to about 25,000 a year (they are given all the rights of refugees we fly in once granted asylum).

The legal process can take a year or more, so asylum seekers are in your communities and unscreened for serious medical issues for months and possibly years.

From the Centers for Disease Control on Asylees:

Asylees are persons who meet the definition of a refugee but are already in the United States or are seeking admission at a US port of entry. From 2000 to 2010, the top ten countries of origin for people granted asylum in the United States were China, Colombia, Haiti, India, Ethiopia, Iraq, Armenia, Albania, Iran, and Somalia. Those who are living in the United States or are seeking admission at a US port of entry when they apply for asylum are recommended to have a domestic medical exam once they have been granted asylum status. When an asylee applies for adjustment of status, an I-693 medical examination (including vaccinations) by a civil surgeon is required. Once an asylee has been granted asylum status, their family members may follow to join them in the US, and therefore these family members would undergo the required medical examination overseas, prior to immigration.

Currently, there are very little data available about the health problems of asylees after they migrate to the United States. Many asylum seekers originate in, or transfer through, countries with public health issues similar to those facing refugees arriving through the US Refugee Admissions Program. Therefore we recommend that medical providers screening asylees apply the same screening and treatment recommendations in the CDC Refugee Domestic Guidelines when performing a medical evaluation of an asylee. For individuals who have been in the United States for more than one year, special attention should be paid to diseases with long latency and associated severe morbidity such as tuberculosis, hepatitis B, and Strongyloides infection.

See also our previous 288 posts in our ‘health issues’ category.  A lot of information is archived there on the mental and physical health problems refugees bring to America.  Gee, isn’t it grand that we have Obamacare!

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:

ISTANBUL (AFP) –
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!

Endnote:  Watch this video!
