Pamela Geller urges halt to Refugee Resettlement Program, blasts Southern Poverty Law Center as “smear machine”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 3, 2015

Yesterday, Pamela Geller writing at World Net Daily urged readers to contact their members of Congress to support Rep. Brian Babin’s bill to suspend the UN/US State Department Refugee Resettlement Program until the costs were thoroughly analyzed and the security issues were fully addressed.

We urge you to read her entire commentary here, but bring your attention to what she says about the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) which has been called upon by the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) to expose this blog and anyone who questions the program as “racists.”   (See my previous post, LOL!, HIAS is obviously using Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals for guidance!).

Here is what we said last summer about the HIAS report (Resettlement at Risk: Meeting Emerging Challenges to Refugee Resettlement in Local Communities) siccing the SPLC on us.

And, before I get to what Ms. Geller says, I just saw yesterday that Melanie Nezer of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (author of the report!) is presently chairing the lobbying consortium for the refugee contractors (Refugee Council USA aka RCUSA) and some of their NO Borders friends in Washington.

Melanie Nezer

Melanie Nezer is author of the HIAS report calling on the SPLC to smear us and is presently chairing the refugee resettlement industry’s lobbying arm in Washington.

Longtime readers know that Ms. Nezer is one of the first to call for 15,000 Syrian Muslims a year to be admitted to the US.   Now, RCUSA (and the newly re-branded HIAS) have upped the ante and are behind the drive to admit 65,000 Syrians to your towns and cities by the time Obama leaves office!

We have also learned from inside sources that RCUSA put out an alert to their member resettlement contractors (and mentioning me by name!) to NOT give out any information to any of you calling your local contractor’s offices.  What are they hiding?

Back to World Net Daily and what Pamela Geller says about the SPLC (emphasis is mine):

The only thing more dangerous than the jihadists in our midst are their patrons and benefactors.

WND reported that “the refugee resettlement industry, which includes legions of immigrant rights advocates, lawyers and community organizing groups funded by George Soros, the Rockefeller and Ford foundations, among others, churned out a document in 2013 on how to deal with so-called ‘pockets of resistance.’ The document, authored by the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, one of the nine government contractors doing resettlement work, advised refugee advocates to research the backgrounds of local people who oppose resettlements and turn them over to the Southern Poverty Law Center for public shaming as ‘racists’ and ‘anti-Muslim’ bigots.”

This is further proof that the Southern Poverty Law Center, or SPLC, is nothing more than a smear machine designed to destroy the forces of good. These are the tactics of totalitarians and supremacists. And this is who the media turns to for comment on the work of my colleagues and me. There is not one mainstream media outlet that does not quote the SPLC libels when reporting on my work.

Freedom-loving Americans must understand that this is what every one of us, the individual, is up against: a billion-dollar machine of destruction and hate. Churchill said of Islam: “No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.” And I would add one thing.No stronger retrograde force exists in the America today than the left.

Continue reading here.

Alert!  The most important thing any of you could do right now is to get your member of Congress to co-sponsor the Babin bill.  Who supports Babin’s modest approach, and who doesn’t! is going to tell you all you need to know about your member of Congress!

St. Cloud, MN: Tiny pro-Somali group at Courthouse, large gathering at the VFW, media focuses on tiny group

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 2, 2015

Update August 3:  Unethical news media parrots union organizer suggesting speaker is “racist,” but never calls him for comment, here.

If you had no idea what was going on in St. Cloud, this story from the St. Cloud Times would not be very useful to bring you up to speed!

You might want to first start by reading our post from Thursday, here.

Union organizer, Jane Conrad, did some serious backpedaling after first planning a rally against a local VFW(Veterans of Foreign Wars for our readers elsewhere in the world!) that hosted local citizens wanting to hear about the economic and social costs of resettling more refugees in St. Cloud, MN***.  As we reported, she and a faculty member from St Cloud State University were clearly aiming to intimidate the Granite VFW Club for daring to allow diners to speak freely over their meal.  There is more at WND, here.

Saturday rally VFW 04-1

Veterans and friends arrive at the Granite VFW Saturday to show support for the VFW and for the right of citizens to gather and express their first amendment rights. Photo courtesy a local resident.

Obviously, quickly seeing the error of taking on a venerable veterans group, she and her Somali supporters moved their demonstration down town.  You can read all about their tiny rally here at the St. Cloud Times where Conrad claims they are protesting a Minnesota citizen, Bob Enos, for talking about sharia law.

You might think Enos was some two-headed monster to listen to Conrad.  I wonder did the Times reporter seek comment from Enos?

Here is Mr. Enos giving a thoughtful presentation to a local government body recently.

Meanwhile the Times, other than a few photos tacked on at the end of the ‘news’ story, doesn’t tell readers about the huge and friendly gathering of veterans and friends supporting the VFW (which remember was the original target of Ms. Conrad and Professor Mark Jaede).

And, what a coincidence the St. Cloud Times also published a pro-more-Somali-refugees opinion piece at the same time!

SC Times columnist Patrick Henry, who previously said this, is trotted out for the occasion!  How convenient is this timing!

” Minnesota’s 5th District Rep. Keith Ellison’s taking his oath of office on Jefferson’s copy of the Quran was a quintessential American moment…..the portrait of America as a Christian nation is groundless.”

Guess we know where he is coming from!

I have no time or energy to rebut yesterday’s opinion piece by Patrick Henry, retired executive director of the Collegeville Institute for Ecumenical and Cultural Research who has zero understanding of the finances involved with federal refugee resettlement grants and contracts and that is precisely why Mr. Enos’ call for serious fiscal studies is vitally important now.

Patrick Henry

This is Patrick Henry, a Times columnist brought out at just the right time to back the Times reporting. See what he said in April about how we are not a Christian nation. Then shouldn’t it follow that Lutheran Social Services or any religious group should not receive government funding? http://www.sctimes.com/story/opinion/2015/04/05/misinterpret-founders-intent-religious-freedom/25277705/

Here is how the St. Cloud Times opens its ‘news’ story today:

A group of St. Cloud-area residents took to the stairs in front of the Stearns County Courthouse to protest an anti-immigration speaker who visited St. Cloud earlier this week.

Jane Conrad, a field representative for the East Central Area Labor Council, planned the rally after Bob Enos, of Willmar, appeared at an event booked at the Veterans of Foreign Wars speaking out against refugees and Sharia, the Islamic law.

“We know we have issues in our community and we know they exist, but we don’t need people coming in and mixing it up and creating more problems,” Conrad said. “You’re welcome to come in and be a part of our community, but don’t create division.”

Worried that some citizens may be confused that Conrad and her group were speaking out against the VFW, Conrad made it clear they support troops and veterans and were strictly protesting Enos.

Enos, oh right!  It is all about Enos!

Develop alternative media!

I guess what I am trying to say to all of you:   it is time, past time! for the citizens of St. Cloud to develop their own alternative media.  And, this applies to all of you in ‘Pockets of Resistance’.  You do not have to depend on the local biased newspaper to reach like-minded people.  I started RRW when my local paper wouldn’t publish FACTS about refugees and the cost to our community.

One of the first things I would post at your new publication are the financial facts about Lutheran Social Service of MN that clearly Patrick Henry has no clue about!

Write a website or a blog to put out your research and your opinions!  Maybe find another small newspaper that is willing to publish your information.  Definitely use conservative talk radio.  Put papers like the St. Cloud Times out of business, or at least begin to diminish their readership!

Or, consider this!  Concerned citizens in Twin Falls, ID  (a pocket of resistance) are printing up literature and taking it door-to-door to get around their own biased press!

This post is filed in our new category Pockets of Resistance’ to help all of you better understand the tactics that will be used against you and how to counter them.

*** Just a reminder, the city of St. Cloud is a UN/US State Department preferred resettlement site right along with Minneapolis and St. Paul in Minnesota.

Is Wyoming Republican Senator Barrasso willing to colonize Wyoming with migrant workers? Sure sounds like it

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 1, 2015

For new readers we have a very large archive of posts on how Wyoming Governor Matt Mead wants to open a refugee program in the only state in the nation with no formal resettlement program.  We wondered where the state’s Republican Senators are on the issue of immigration and we get a hint for one of them in a lengthy Breitbart story (hat tip: Jim) entitled, No Congressional GOP Leaders Will Support Reducing Immigration.’

Senator Barrasso

Sen. Barrasso: “We need additional labor.” Does he mean additional cheap labor for the Chamber of Commerce and business pals?

Breitbart reporter, Julia Hahn, who has been doing a lot of great work on legal immigration issues, including refugee resettlement, tells us this about Wyoming Senator John Barrasso:

In the Senate, for instance, while Senate Republican leaders gently and quietly opposed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 80%’s (R-FL) unpopular immigration bill once it was assured of Senate passage, they grounded their statements of opposition in vague criticisms of border security. [They are such chickens, it makes me want to scream—ed] Public comments suggest they were supportive of Sen. Rubio’s effort to drastically expand the total level of immigration into the United States. The Schumer-Rubio plan would have handed out more than 30 million green cards to immigrants primarily from countries with little to no history of Western institutions, but Sen. John Barasso (R-WY) praised Rubio’s efforts to expand the labor supply in this way:

I’m [a] child of immigrants. That is the history of this country. Immigration is good and important for our country. Legal immigration needs to really be modernized. Marco Rubio is working on that… We need additional labor.

Barrasso’s state of Wyoming has a population of about half a million people. Ironically, if just 1 million of Rubio’s 30 million green card recipients had moved to Wyoming — instead of more likely destinations in eastern states such as Georgia and Virginia— Wyoming could suddenly, almost overnight, have the same politics as California.

Generations of rural traditions passed down from parents to children would be electorally crowded out by the new traditions of new arrivals. Barasso never explained why he thinks adding millions of laborers from mostly poor countries would improve schools, hospitals, or job markets in states like his own, or why it would be “important for our country” to resettle millions of immigrants with green cards from non-Western countries.

Read all of Ms. Hahn’s report by clicking here.

Frankly, all of this makes me very concerned about any Republican running for the Presidency in 2016.  We know Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush can’t be trusted to protect AMERICAN WORKERS, can any of them?

WND: More on the Babin bill to suspend refugee program, and on St. Cloud, MN “action” for today

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 1, 2015

Leo Hohmann, at World Net Daily, who has become a leading writer about the problems surrounding the UN/US State Department Refugee Resettlement Program, has pulled together several threads in a new piece on the introduction of the bill by Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX)—a bill to suspend the refugee program until important information about its costs and the security threats the program poses have been examined.

Hohmann weaves in more information on the controversy swirling in St. Cloud, MN where union community agitators are seeking to intimidate and silence those who have questions about the fiscal impact of the program on Minnesota.

See the whole article here.  It was only published late last night, but has hundreds of mostly irate commenters already.

Additional information here:  Welcoming America Watch Midwest tells us the number of refugees going to MN this year.

Asylum seekers want to go home, say Germany more dangerous than Syria

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 31, 2015

Invasion of Europe news…..

The caption under this photo at the Daily Mail reads: The lengthy queues reflect the huge influx of migrants coming into the country which is seen to have a ‘soft’ immigration system.

From what the media tells us every day, Syria is one of the most (if not the most) dangerous places in the world.

So, it begs the question: are these really legitimate refugees or economic migrants that are flooding into Germany and welcomed by the German government (but obviously not by the people)?  Really?  They find the “violence” in Germany is worse than ISIS-perpetuated violence in Syria or Iraq?

What does any western government think is going to happen when you push the indigenous population too far?

I have a half a dozen things I could be posting on Germany today, but no time to do it all justice.  The issue of refugees is exploding world wide and I feel pulled in many many directions trying to get the news to you.

So, here is one piece on Germany that you should see today.  Again, I am amazed that the invasion of Germany does not make American TV news anywhere that I’ve seen.  How about you?  Have you seen any coverage other than an occasional big city newspaper report?  Why the silence?

From the Daily Mail (emphasis is mine):

Refugees from war-torn Syria claim racism in Germany has become so extreme they want to go home as a growing anti-Muslim movement sees soaring attacks on foreigners.

The nation has been gripped by a spate of anti-foreigners rallies, violence and arson attacks against refugee homes or would-be shelters as hundreds of thousands seek refuge in the country.

This year has already seen about 200 arson and other attacks against refugee housing while support for anti-Muslim movement, Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West (PEGIDA), has been growing.

The growing tensions between citizens and refugees mean some asylum seekers are so scared of attacks they are considering going home.

Taher arrived in Germany a month ago, risking his life to fleeing the atrocities of war-torn Syria and making the long, difficult journey across the Mediterranean.

But in a shocking admission, the 27-year-old said he had already been attacked by a gang, who piled out of a car and hit him, and has had enough of the xenophobia he has experienced in Germany.

‘I want to return to Syria – very afraid here,’ he said in broken English this week, speaking outside a refugee centre in the small eastern town of Freital, which has gained national notoriety for ugly protests against asylum seekers.

Visit the Daily Mail for more with lots of photos.

Our complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ news is archived here.  We have also covered Germany extensively for some time, click here for more on Germany.

And, for all who are wondering why I haven’t reported on the rioting at Calais this week, I just haven’t had time.  So sorry because I know it is important news too.

Update!  LOL! Looks like I’ve been a bad girl according the politically correct ruling class.  I shouldn’t say “invasion,” “economic migrant,” or even “migrant” says the WaPo, here.  I haven’t used the word “swarm” as David Cameron did recently to describe what was happening at Calais, but I’ll remember that for the future.

Warning: Obama’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) regulation and Immigration Policies have the Same Goal

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 31, 2015

Editor:  This is a guest column written by reader Julia.

Update August 1:  The author has learned new information and has edited this piece to reflect a better understanding of how AFFH will impact you.

For all of you doing research on Refugee Resettlement where you live, you must now also find out what is happening on the low income housing front as well.  You may find your local elected officials and local developers are too cozy with the federal bucks that come their way to advance the Obama Administration’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing initiative.  And, of course the big question is, would some squishy Republican president ever have the spine to turn this around once in office?  Looks like it may be up to you, in ‘pockets of resistance,’ to raise awareness and fight this locally for now in addition to hitting your US Senators and Members of Congress when they are home for the August recess.

Here is Julia (emphasis is mine):

Stanley Kurtz has done extensive writing on what is now titled the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) regulation. Kurtz believes that Obama blames suburban tax-flight for urban decay and that AFFH is a way to annex the suburbs back into the cities.

Message to Republicans…..

But, let’s look at AFFH in context with other actions of the Obama administration and the Democrat party. These actions include in part, the Department of Justice’s actions to prevent the implementation of voter i.d. laws; challenges to state attempts to require proof of citizenship in voter registrations; lawsuits over state legislative redistricting; the efforts to increase immigration; and the push to get immigrants to become citizens.

Groups such as The New Americans Campaign, Cities for Citizenship, etc. are working in conjunction with the Obama administration to accomplish the administration’s push to get immigrants to become citizens. It is generally believed that these efforts along with the administration’s policy to increase immigration are being undertaken to further the Democrat party’s goal to create a majority Democrat voting populace.

AFFH will create a database that categorizes each zip code by race and establish rules that essentially have the goal of ensuring that no area will have a population of more than 50% non-whites.

If an area has more thant 50% non-whites it is deemed segregated. Then the surrounding predominantly white suburbs will be forced to build subsidized housing so non-whites from the deemed segregated areas can be relocated to the surrounding white suburbs.

Since the Democrat party counts on minorities categorically voting Democrat, they likely intend for AFFH to sway the voting populace in predominantly white suburbs to a Democrat majority.

Robert Romano, senior editor at Americans for Limited Government, presciently said in a 2014 WND article by Leo Hohmann, “[AFFH] allows (the feds) to gerrymander for political purposes. It’s a way to get around whatever Republican gerrymandering had gone on after the 2010 election cycle. If they are doing this for low-income or disadvantaged purposes, well, what does that tell you? Low income tends to vote for Democrats.”

AFFH may thus serve the same purpose as Obama’s immigration policies – pertaining to both legal and illegal immigration – to create a one party system by changing the population. Obama’s immigration policies will change the population in the aggregate by adding more minorities whom they call “new Americans” and AFFH will enable them to be distributed to GOP dominated voting districts in the suburbs.

It seems clear that the Obama administration, through AFFH, intends to take away any benefit that the GOP may have in current GOP dominated voting districts. If AFFH permits the Democrats to successfully dislodge possible GOP voting majorities in the suburbs, they may gain permanent majority control of the U.S. political system.

Paul Sperry wrote in the New York Post that AFFH and its database infrastructure are intended to outlast the Obama administration. Cecilia Muñoz, co-chair of Obama’s White House Task Force on New Americans and Obama’s domestic policy adviser has said that she is tasked with “making sure Obama’s historic immigration policies get ‘institutionalized.”

If the GOP does not take action to counter these programs, they do so at their own peril. But, if the Democrats were to achieve a one party political system with the help of AFFH, the country’s republic form of government may forever be a mere facade to Obama’s hope and change transformation.

This post is filed in our category entitled, Comments worth noting/guest posts.  We have also categorized it in our new ‘Pockets of Resistance’ category as guidance for resistance fighters throughout the country.  Maybe assign a couple of members of your group to find out what is going on to bring low income housing to your town.  Housing availability, of course, is the limiting factor determining how many refugees and other migrants will colonize your town.

Texas Congressman introduces bill to suspend Refugee Resettlement Program!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 30, 2015

Update July 31: Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review has more, go here (hat tip: Dick).

Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX) has introduced the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act (H.R. 3314) which seeks to suspend refugee resettlement to America until economic costs are analyzed and national security concerns are put to rest.

Rep. Brian Babin is a first term Congressman from East Texas. http://babin.house.gov/biography/

I’ve been following this issue for eight years and this is the first time I have seen anyone in Congress (other than recent concerns about Syrian refugees) take a single step to begin to scrutinize the entire program.

Now, let’s see if Rep. Trey Gowdy will give the bill a hearing in his all-important Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security!

Just a reminder, Babin’s home state of Texas is presently the number one state targeted by the UN/US State Department for refugee distribution.

Here is Babin’s press release late today (hat tip: Rosemary):

Washington, DC – U.S. Rep. Brian Babin (TX-36) yesterday introduced the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act (H.R. 3314), which places an immediate suspension on allowing immigrants into the United States under the refugee resettlement program, until the Government Accountability Office (GAO) completes a thorough examination of its costs on federal, state and local governments. According to the U.S. refugee admissions database, nearly 500,000 new immigrants have come to the U.S. under the resettlement program since President Obama first took office – with the state of Texas and its taxpayers being asked to take in more than any other state.

“It is extremely unsettling that the Obama Administration would continue to expand the U.S. resettlement program at such an irresponsible pace in light of our economic and national security challenges,” said Rep. Babin. “While this program may be warranted in certain situations, it is continuing at an unchecked pace. For the past decade the U.S. has been admitting roughly 70,000 new refugees a year, with little understanding of the economic and social costs on our communities.

“Our legislation institutes a common sense pause in the program so that we can better understand the long-term and short-term costs that this program has on local governments, states and U.S. taxpayers. It also gives us an opportunity to examine potential national security issues related to entry and resettlement, particularly as federal law enforcement officials are increasingly concerned about home-grown terrorists.”

This is a very big deal!  Please! Thank Rep. Babin (202-225-1555) and put pressure on Gowdy’s subcommittee to give the bill a hearing!  It is shameful that the program has not in all of its 35-year history been subject to a thorough review.  Call Gowdy at 202-225-6030 even if you have done it before!

Consider sending your horror stories to Rep. Babin!

An afterthought Babin is going to get pounded by the supposedly religious resettlement contractors especially ones with tentacles in his district.  If you live in his district and are supportive of his efforts, please let him know.  Those ‘Christian’ contractors can be pretty mean!

St. Cloud, MN: AFL-CIO operative using intimidation tactics, stirs racial unrest….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 30, 2015

….with the help of a college professor from Saint Cloud State University!

Update July 31:  A critical commenter to this blog tells us that the anti-VFW rally has been moved to the St. Cloud Courthouse, but I am told by local patriots that it doesn’t matter because the barbecue at the VFW is expected to be huge and fun!

Update:  One of our readers pointed out that this is the Red-Green Axis at work.  Why didn’t I think of that!

They plan a rally against the local VFW (what! to teach them a lesson?) and want to silence concerned citizens with an “action” (confrontation?) by Somalis!

As regular readers know, the city of St. Cloud, Minnesota ( the heart of former Rep. Michele Bachmann’s district) has been swamped in recent years by Third World refugees from the UN/US State Department Refugee Resettlement program. 

Jane Conrad

Jane Conrad, union organizer, stirring racial unrest in St. Cloud

Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota is primarily responsible for the resettlement of mostly Somali refugees there.   We believe that LSS is literally acting as an employment agency for the large meat packing companies operating in nearby towns and in need of an abundant supply of cheap labor.   Why American union workers don’t get it is beyond me!

We have an extensive archive on St. Cloud and visited there in April Click here for all of our previous news from St. Cloud going back many years.

Citizens have formed a ‘pocket of resistance’ and have begun to look into the economic impact the resettlement program has on local and state taxpayers.  We reported here recently that Bob Enos of Willmar had made a persuasive argument about how local governments must begin looking at the fiscal cost to taxpayers of placing so many impoverished people on the state’s welfare rolls.

And here is Ron Brantsner (another citizen using his own personal time to research and speak about the economic impact, and the secrecy surrounding the role played by meat packers and Left-leaning foundations) speaking in Little Falls.

As far as I can tell the local paper (St. Cloud Times) hasn’t seen a need to write anything about the brewing storm.

***Update*** SC Times explains changes in rally locations for Saturday August 1, here.

Meeting cancelled at the last minute

Word coming out of St. Cloud is that Brantsner was scheduled to speak at a St. Cloud VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) just days ago when the meeting was abruptly cancelled due to fear that an “action” was being threatened against the VFW and meeting participants where the talk was scheduled.  According to Gregory Jarrett, in an e-mail report to hundreds of like-minded citizens, we are told what happened when the meeting was cancelled:

Ms Conrad was apparently “forceful” enough to get the St Cloud PD to go to the VFW and “make a negotiated deal” to cancel an event [Brantsner was the scheduled speaker—ed]. Attendees traveled from all around Minnesota and had zero knowledge of the last minute cancellation of the EVENT in the basement room until virtually “at the front door” . Those attendees and local residents made the decision to support the Granite VFW and have a meal upstairs, with no scheduled presentation and no audio visual aids.

Working closely with Ms. Conrad on the “action” is SC State University faculty member Mark Jaede

Ms Conrad however in a further attempt to agitate and polarize the community directed an associate attend and to “report” back to her. The attendees (which include a Minnesota State Senator, hardly a radical racist) discussed the reason for the cancellation which then turned into folks standing up and voicing their own personal opinions. There was also a uniformed St Cloud Police Dept officer at the Dinner. The staff of the VFW club made it clear that there would be no “presentation”.  The “cancelled” event turned into a social event where concerned and like minded folks got the opportunity to meet, discuss and exchange views.

Now, in a REAL attempt to “show them a thing or 2″ Ms Conrad and Mr Jaede show zero concern for St Cloud, Veterans, Citizens, The Police Department and City Staff by going at it again.

Conrad (SEIU! and AFL-CIO) and Professor Mark Jaede (St. Cloud State Univ) have organized a rally against the offending VFW this Saturday. 

Here is an e-mail from Jaede quoting Conrad:

From: ” Jaede, Mark G.” < mgjaede@stcloudstate.edu>
Date: July 29, 2015 at 5:04:33 PM CDT
To: ” scsu-announce@stcloudstate.edu” < scsu-announce@lists.stcloudstate.edu>, ” scsu-discuss@stcloudstate.edu” < scsu-discuss@lists.stcloudstate.edu>
Subject:  [SCSU-announce]  New announcement regarding rally at VFW

All:

I am very sorry that this announcement is necessary. I had thought the VFW, which serves veterans of all races, had made the right choice. Apparently not.

This message is from Jane Conrad, who can be reached at   320-267-0899:

A rally was planned to counter racist speaker Ron Branstner who was speaking at the VFW at 9 18th Ave N in St Cloud. Two hours after I let the police know about our action and after the police talked with management at the VFW the speaker was canceled. So I canceled the rally. However, I did find out that the VFW did allow the event to go forward with a racist speaker from Willmar, Bob Enos. To counter this we are planning a rally this Saturday at 1:00 in front of the VFW. Please join us a peaceful collective community action. We are all in this together.

So, Conrad and Jaede have put out the word—show up this Saturday to send a message to the VFW!

And here is Jarrett again in his e-mail to concerned citizens:

I would suspect that every Veteran in Minnesota and surrounding States will be made aware of this planned “Protest Rally” will attend and will stand UNITED in defense and in 100% defiance to radical outside influence’s who have now made the geographical battleground the St Cloud Granite VFW Club.

To all of you in ‘pockets of resistance’ across the country, get ready for intimidation tactics like this one to silence you!

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society can’t find enough housing in San Fran for gay ‘refugees’ (from South Africa)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 30, 2015

Ho hum!  So we are bringing refugees from the highly touted welcoming-to-all “Rainbow Nation” of South Africa, dropping them off in San Francisco and now whining about how there isn’t enough housing for them.  Maybe one of the well-paid staffers at the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) might welcome this gay refugee to their home!

A long sob story at the Bay Area Reporter:

Gay_Refugee_31_LRG

Isn’t HIAS PAID to take care of the refugees it resettles? Why is San Francisco gay refugee saying this: “In the U.S. I am facing homelessness,” Mayema told the Bay Area Reporter in a recent interview. “I don’t want to end up on the streets.”

“Our biggest challenge in helping these people is to find housing for them,” said Amy Weiss, the director of refugee and immigrant services at Jewish Family and Children’s Services of the East Bay. “They come with no employment history and no housing history. San Francisco is hard enough to find housing if you have an income. It is a huge problem for us and for them and to anybody resettling refugees.”

The agency is believed to be the only one in the country that has developed a specific program to work with LGBT refugees. It began four years ago when a number of Iranian LGBT refugees, who had fled to Turkey, needed help resettling in the U.S.

Since then the agency has worked with a number of LGBT refugees, mostly gay men from Africa and the Middle East. In November Junior Mayema arrived from Capetown, South Africa, where he had fled five years ago from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Then look at this, even the UN High Commissioner for Refugees refers to the attack (the star of this story claimed he suffered) as an “alleged attack.” So, he was resettled in America even though it was never proven he was attacked in S. Africa?

UNHCR staff, after learning about Mayema’s alleged attack, referred his case for resettlement last summer. Four months later, according to the account, he was granted refugee status and, in November, arrived in the Bay Area where he received assistance from the Jewish agency and a local church-sponsored group in acclimating to his new surroundings.

And, by the way, as we admit hundreds of refugees from the supposedly welcoming country of South Africa, you can bet there are few if any persecuted white people in the group.  I wonder if a white person pretended to be gay or lesbian and said he or she was attacked, could they get in to the US from South Africa?

The sob story goes on and on, continue reading here.  It is largely a play for more taxpayer money!

Obama extends Temporary Protected Status for Somalis, confusion evident in media reports

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 30, 2015

Temporary Protected Status (TPS) is one more of those LEGAL immigration programs that needs to be completely reformed or dumped altogether.  It might sound good on the surface.  Of course we can’t send nationals of certain countries home to a devastated country, they should get to stay for 18 months until their country improves is how the logic goes.

US CISHowever, here is the rub—they never go home!  Every 18 months the federal government gives them another extension!  Look at wikipedia here where we learn that a 2001 earthquake in El Salvador is responsible for permission for over 100,000 Salvadorans already (illegally? on tourist or student visas?) in the US to file for TPS.  Honduras is even worse, ‘temporary’ status has been regularly extended since 1998! Somalia longer still!

Can’t just blame Obama!

Some years ago when Bush did one of those Central American TPS extensions he literally said we need to keep them here so they could prop up their home country’s economy by sending remittance money back home!  That means taking money out of the US economy! Right! The Bush Administration surely extended Somali TPS several times.

When Obama extended TPS status for Somalis that is only for a relatively small number who have been here for a very long time.  Al Jazeera tells us this:

Some 355,000 people total hold temporary protected status, with El Salvadorians making up more than half of those. The government regularly extends TPS for some nationalities, sometimes for decades. An estimated 270 Somalis have held their TPS designation continuously since 1991.

Somali TPS holders though are a drop in the bucket compared to the nearly 10,000 Somalis entering the US annually through the permanent Refugee Resettlement Program.

By the way, Al Jazerra also tells us that there are 10,000 Syrians in the US eligible for TPS and they are not rushing to make themselves known to the government.

TPS is really an excuse to give work permits and legal permission to stay in the US forever (waiting for amnesty of course!), but it is not supposed to be a path to citizenship (you can bet many TPS holders are voting anyway!).  Refugees, on the other hand, who are here to stay no matter what, are given permanent resident status and ultimately citizenship.  

See Katie Pavlich writing at Townhall yesterday.  She blurs the lines between the two LEGAL immigration programs, but who can blame her, our LEGAL immigration system is a chaotic mess.

Outside of the investor visas, student visas, and worker visas, the three big LEGAL programs that admit (or permit legal presence) are the Refugee Resettlement/Asylum Program, the Diversity Visa Lottery and Temporary Protected Status—all must be reformed or abolished!

So, the next time some candidate for office (or some other know-it-all) says that “illegal immigration is bad, but legal is good,” tell them they don’t know what the hell they are talking about!
