Comment worth noting: Sign up for Heritage Sentinel program

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 29, 2016

Editor:  From time to time we post comments from readers that you might have missed where they were posted at a particular post.  As regular readers know, I have been nagging you all to become more involved with what your Washington reps are doing because frankly, if the US Refugee Admissions Program is going to be trashed or reformed, it will be Congress that must do it (or it will be Congress’ Appropriations process that could slow it).

Trump can stop it in the short term, but it will take Congress to make the necessary longterm changes while Trump is in office. (We will be watching what he does in the first 30 days on this issue!)

congress

I know you have little faith in Congress, but you must keep the pressure on!

In my previous post, I reported on Rep. Brian Babin’s interview with Fox News.

Rep. Babin will need help in Congress.

Our reader, FloridaBuff, suggests becoming a Heritage Sentinel.  The Heritage Foundation is playing a huge role in the Trump transition. Although because it is a jobs issue it should be a top concern, immigration/refugees is not a major priority for them. So, I did just sign up.

 

From FloridaBuff:

Ann – I agree with your recommendation to speak to Congress members. Another thing to do is encourage members to join the Heritage Action organization which now has 17,000 plus national conservative members focused on grassroots communications with Congress. You learn a lot about the process, and I personally have posted refugee issues on their internal member forum. It is free, and a great way to learn how Congress works. Every Monday they have a nationwide teleconference for a half hour at 5:30pm to discuss current issues. The only negative is that the issues selected are by Heritage Action (a spinoff of Heritage Foundation) thus Refugee Resettlement has never been on the priority list (yet). But learning how Congress works is valuable and you can apply that to your own discussions with your local Congress members. I recommend readers go and sign up for the Heritage Action Sentinel program at: http://heritageaction.com/

Comment worth noting: We aid and abet ISIS when we don’t tell the truth about Islam

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 7, 2016

Editor:  As you know from time to time we post reader comments that we think you might like, but might have missed. This is a comment from ‘7Delta’ in response to our post on how the OSU Somali slasher’s mother is scared (according to her lawyer) by Trump’s tweets.

‘7delta’ (emphasis added is mine):

Oh, for Pete’s sake. The jihadist’s family is traumatized by a tweet and the excuse for Wrong-Way Artan jack-knifing on campus is that he became “radicalized?” The old “the devil made me do it” radicalization defense…meaning, of course, that people who object to stealth jihad and hurt wittle Iswammic feewings are “recruiting” for ISIS. Okay, it’s the right motivational sentiment, but the wrong devil. Of course, according to our Mouths of Sauron, Wrong-Way’s actions can’t have anything to do with Islamic doctrine, now can it?

screenshot-78

CNN News anchor Alisyn Camerota suggested last week that American women wear hijabs in solidarity with Moms like this Somali woman. Needless to say, it inspired a flood of responses, like this one, on twitter. http://www.bizpacreview.com/2016/11/30/cnns-alisyn-camerota-suggests-american-women-wear-hijabs-show-solidarity-muslims-418251

Sorry, that song and dance went out with the minuet. Knowing Islamic doctrine is in style and their own operator’s manuals blow their flimsy fears and excuses out of Wrong Way’s tail pipe. Mom and Dad, wherever he may be, just got a free ticket to paradise, along with 68 additional close relatives. Chances are Mom and her remaining six young’uns (and probably Dad) had a wedding feast (paid for by us) with their closest friends to celebrate. Passed out sweets to their neighbors too (also purchased on our dime.) She’s not afraid of anything other than her attempts to trick us into being compliant with Shariah blasphemy laws won’t work anymore, as are her fellow hizrahites. In that respect, her fears (and theirs) are well founded.

Still, there’s good news! The reported rapidly spreading ailment, Islamophobia, has been cured! It’s a miracle! Amazing… true…but it never even existed. Imagine that! What a relief. We can quit worrying about it, just in time for Christmas.

Nothing Trump, nor any other happy infidel has done, will do, or can do has any effect whatsoever on Islamic doctrine. We are irrelevant to what Islam believes. The Double Duds, Mohammed and Allah, “radicalized” her son, only they called it devout.

Does anybody with a few functioning brain cells really think ISIS or cultural jihadists would actually tell us that criticizing Islam or electing Trump will recruit for the jihadists, so we shouldn’t do it, if it really did? What? Do they have too many soldiers of Allah and need to cut back to slow down establishing their caliphate so nobody gets hurt? Booty just being spread too thin? The sex slave market is saturated? I don’t think so. Wrong-Way was a devout follower of the 2 D’s. Pretty simple and doesn’t even require more than a basic understanding of Islamic doctrine.

The only thing we do that aids and abets ISIS and the Double D’s is to not tell the truth. Islam is what it is.

No sympathy from my keyboard for Mama Wrong Way’s “fears.” I’m sorry her son felt the obligation to try to kill people and to die a martyr, but that’s an Islamic issue. Maybe she should ask her prophet for profit (he got 1/5 of the booty, ya know) and Allah’s Head what to do when their infidel targets can read and won’t cooperate? That is, if she can figure out how to say it in Arabic, since that’s the only language Allah speaks.

I mean, seriously. Whining and name calling is just not working anymore, not even with the help of female news anchors suggesting infidel women should comply with Shariah law and wear hijabs in solidarity with Muslim women when a jihadist decides to get martyred, as if that’ll make everything okay when their men beat them or they’re the victims of an honor killing, which is in accordance with Shariah law too, or when the Filthy Rich Lawless Center puts people telling the truth on their Dollars for Hate List, or when our suspiciously “ignorant” of Islam president keeps telling us jihad isn’t Islamic. What happened to good old fashioned lying working?

Dang those fake news sites that truthfully report on Islamic atrocities!

A curse of fleas upon the Internet for making the Qu’ran, Hadith and Sira available for the infidel’s reading pleasure.

Seriously, these whiny rote replies are severely lacking in creativity and are as old as Mohammed’s first camel. Nobody, except the bobble-headed, bleached blonde news anchors, their suck-up male counterparts and the few parrots still flapping their fake social justice feathers, believes it anymore. The liars issuing talking points to the blondies and bird brains know the truth. Islam is their tool. Islam, naturally, intends to take their heads. Tickets will be available soon, at a venue near you. Popcorn is welcome.

Okay, got that off my chest. I’ll take another dose of Mucinex just to be sure. Later.

Guest post: Reader has something to say to World Relief

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 21, 2016

Editor: Last week one of the nine major federal resettlement contractors responsible for placing refugees in your towns and cities held a post-election webinar to discuss the future of refugee resettlement in the wake of Donald Trump’s victory on November 8th.

World Relief and its fellow contracting agencies have been calling the shots all these years with virtually no Congressional oversight and definitely no assessment of the Refugee program’s value within any previous administration—Democrat or Republican.  All of that could change after January 21, 2017, and they are worried!

For my recent post on World Relief’s financials, click here.

Below is a comment from a former VOLAG (contracting agency) employee who listened in on the webinar and had this to say (subheadings and highlighting are mine):

GUEST COMMENTS ON WORLD RELIEF’S NOVEMBER 18, 2016, 3PM (EST) WEBINAR ENTITLED, “LEADING YOUR CHURCH THROUGH THE POST-ELECTION ENVIRONMENT”

World Relief issued an invitation on a World Relief Facebook page to join the Webinar.  As an evangelical Christian and a former employee of a federal and state funded refugee resettlement agency, I want to share some of the notes I took while listening.

Please read on so you will understand their viewpoint so you can better dialogue with them and others.  I’ve tried to be accurate in using quotation marks so as not to misrepresent or misquote anything said on the webinar.  Keep in mind that World Relief is the humanitarian arm of the National Association of Evangelicals.

emily-gray

Emily Gray

Emily Gray, World Relief Senior Vice President of US Ministries for World Relief addressed Church leaders and others who registered for the webinar on how to “navigate a new environment post-election.”   Scott Arbeiter, President of World Relief, in a reference to Revelation 7:9, spoke of looking forward “to a very real time when people of every tribe and tongue and nation will be gathered around the throne.”  He called on Christians to demonstrate the love of Christ and admitted that many Church members are divided about the recent election results, a condition that is not new for the Church.  He encouraged Church leaders to look at culture through the lens of their Christian faith.

Blaming Breitbart for creating fear?

Dr. Ed Stetzer of the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism at Wheaton College noted that “most conservative evangelicals see refugees as an opportunity for mission and evangelism” and added that “Americans are welcoming and generous people except when they are afraid.”  He immediately referenced Breitbart.com.  I can only assume the implication is that Breitbart.com has stirred up fear.  Is accurate reporting of actual events stirring up fear or just telling the truth?  See http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/11/18/report-8-syrians-caught-at-texas-border-in-laredo/ and http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/06/22/senate-committee-580-terror-convictions-in-u-s-since-911-380-terrorists-are-foreign-born/.

ed_stetzer

Dr. Ed Stetzer

Stetzer said that five to 10 years ago, evangelicals were committed to serving the “marginalized and the vulnerable” and he dismissed the idea that refugee resettlement is an easy way for terrorists to enter the US, due to the lengthy process refugees go through prior to resettlement.  He said the refugee process is the worst way for terrorists to “sneak in” and the Church must engage these issues in the public milieu.  I would refer Dr. Stetzer to those Breitbart.com articles as well as the following from The Daily Mail, Fox News, and CNN.  Again, is this fear-mongering or just accurate reporting?  Stetzer said that because an “anti-refugee mentality has swept up the country and the mood of the country has shifted,” the Church must have a sense of advocacy.  He mentioned that the means of refugees entering this country is different from Europe in that they “can’t walk in here.”

Trump nominees aggressively anti-refugees

He maintains that evangelical leaders largely voted for Trump in spite of his personality and as a vote against Hillary Clinton and that “most white evangelicals align with the Republican party.”  He noted that most of President-elect Trump’s nominees are “aggressively anti-refugees.”  He enjoined the Church to be driven by faith, not by fear and said that evangelicals have been “co-opted by fear.

James Misner, Senior Vice President at World Relief, referencing the sacraments of baptism and communion and I Corinthians 12 and Galatians 3, said the message is to “value ‘the other.’”

Does Christ want us to love those who would destroy Christians and Jews?

It seems to me that Misner is preaching love of “the other” (a biblical concept, to be sure) but using scripture to imply that evangelicals who are anti- refugee resettlement are opposed to people who are different.  Granted, these scriptures do command Christians to love and embrace each other, and those different from themselves, but I do not believe they command embracing pagan, anti-Christian religions and worldviews which seek to undermine and abolish Christians and Jews!  Yes, Christians are to be unified, but not unified with anti-Christian ideologies (which the refugee resettlement industry is spreading throughout this nation).

Job of the church to resettle refugees, not the government! (Huh!)

james-misner

James Misner

Strangely, Misner said, “We should not outsource welcoming the stranger and serving the vulnerable to the government.”  Isn’t that exactly what “faith based” VOLAGs such as World Relief have done?  Misner never mentioned the hundreds of thousands of dollars that the government grants to WORLD RELIEF and other resettlement agencies to do what Misner thinks is the job of the Church!  Misner quoted Tim Keller, “Unless you believe the gospel everything you do will be driven by pride and fear.”  What a patronizing and condescending use of Keller’s quote!  Many, many Christians definitely believe the gospel and are driven by faith, logic, and sound reason and not by pride or fear, particularly in regard to the fiscally unsustainable, fraud fraught, and dangerous refugee resettlement program.  They are driven by common sense and compassion for a nation and its citizens, present and future!

Emily Gray shared some concerns about that the new government administration would mean for refugees.  She said a concern of already resettled refugees is that refugees who are separated from their family members will possibly face even longer separations if resettlement numbers are diminished but that until the new administration takes office in January, President Obama’s 110,000 presidential determination number of refugees to be resettled continues.

Another issue she addressed is DACA, which, because it is a 2012 presidential executive order and not a law, it can be changed by the incoming President.  According to Gray, 500,000 to 750,000 people receive benefits under DACA and since these benefits may be affected, they are worried!

As a former refugee resettlement worker at a VOLAG, I find it unconscionable that these speakers did not address the serious and valid concerns that evangelicals and everyone else may have about the fraud, fiscal costs to communities, and national security in regard to refugee resettlement and other forms of immigration.

As an evangelical Christian who has supported missionaries, missions, and befriended many, many who are “different” from me, “the other,” the speakers referred to, I find their comments judgmental, patronizing, condescending, and offensive.  I fully agree that Jesus commanded His followers to love and serve all people and not to regard one as better than the other.  However, He nowhere commands me to be complicit in a program that, over the long run, undermines the very freedoms we have in this nation.  I am happy to send my tithes and love offerings to ministries that minister to all peoples.  I am not willing to be taxed for it so the government can pay “Christian” agencies to do what the Church should do on its own.  That is why I fully support a “Defund Refugee Resettlement” movement.

Guest commentary: 2016 Presidential Election—Choose wisely!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 7, 2016

This is a guest post written by a great friend of this blog about the most important election of our lifetimes.

By Nathanael Greene

This election will determine the fate of our nation. With Donald Trump we have a chance, and it is only that. Over the past few years we have learned to our shock and dismay just how corrupt and out of touch our elected officials really are. They have an agenda and it does not include the American people, except in extracting as much of our resources as possible. They are a powerful force. I don’t know if Donald Trump can overcome it, but I do know that no one else can.

podesta-bill-clinton-750x400

Message from Ann: For all you women out there who think you are voting for the first female president of the United States, it will be this diabolical duo who will be running the country—John Podesta and Bill Clinton—while Hillary naps.

Hillary Clinton personifies everything that is worst in Washington. In addition to being bottomlessly corrupt, she is an extreme leftist. She has worked and socialized with DC’s biggest extremists, for example her former boss, Robert Borosage, founder of the anti-American Center for National Security Studies, and former director of the subversive Institute for Policy Studies, and John Podesta, a calculating, committed hardcore leftist, who, like Hillary, is also serially corrupt. Her good friend VA Governor Terry McAuliffe has just pardoned 60,000 criminals so they can vote (for Hillary of course). This is vote fraud.

A vote for Hillary is a vote for an entrenched criminal class that must be routed out if our nation is to survive.

Despite his sometimes uncouth nature, Donald Trump’s message has resonated with everyday Americans because it is everyday Americans whose lives are being destroyed by the DC progressives. No other candidate in recent history – including Reagan – has so clearly spoken to our widespread angst about our country’s future. There are few, if any politicians, that actually grasp the reality. Trump does, and has articulated a comprehensive response that misses nothing.

He has issued a Contract with the American Voter to clean up Washington, DC. His first day in office Trump pledges to rescind all of Obama’s destructive executive orders, including those on guns and especially the border. He promises to repeal and replace Obamacare. He promises to abolish Common Core. His policy positions are clearly articulated, detailed and honest.

On the other hand, if you can convince yourself that Hillary’s mind-boggling corruption is not disqualifying, then perhaps her insane, misplaced policy prescriptions are. While our military sinks to the lowest level of readiness since WWI, our borders overflow with illegal aliens and terrorists, our individual rights are being stripped right and left, Hillary promises to expand upon those Obama policies that got us here in the first place. There is a great chart linked here that compares some of Trump’s positions with Clinton’s. It doesn’t pretend to be unbiased.

Trump for President 2016!

Hillary for Prison 2016!

Watch Obama tell a young woman that she can vote even if she is in the country illegally (see Fox News Neil Cavuto’s response).

From Michigan: An open letter to Donald Trump

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 30, 2016

This  is a letter penned today by one of our faithful readers on the eve of a scheduled visit tomorrow by Presidential candidate Donald Trump. Please, Donald Trump, help Michigan!

 

 

 

Dear Mr. Trump:

I am so happy to hear you will be coming to Michigan at least one more time before the election. I doubt I will have a chance to speak to you in a throng of thousands of supporters, but if I could this would be my message.

Michigan represents the United States on the cusp of collapse if Hillary Clinton and the globalists backing her prevail on November 8th. Michigan has been so damaged by job loss and permanent unemployment from companies moving elsewhere that it has caused the social fabric to change. Like many of my friends I am a grandmother with grandchildren elsewhere. When our children graduated from college they all had to move to other states for jobs. There was no future for them in Michigan.

So now the central planners on the left are flooding our state with refugees from war torn and third world countries to provide a pool of very low wage workers who will be reliable Democrat voters to help keep the sinking ship of state afloat. Per capita Michigan has been receiving the most refugees in recent years and now we are receiving the most Syrian refugees. While the Refugee Resettlement program operates under the radar as much as possible, the presence of a large concentration of refugees is being noticed because some parts of Michigan are being transformed almost overnight.

People are concerned. Why are we bringing in unvettable potential terrorists into our midst? Most of these newcomers are Muslim and many of them are Sharia compliant. Sharia is not compatible with the US Constitution. Now we are discovering that a number of these refugees are harboring TB and in at least one case the drug resistant variety. This seems to be nothing short of insanity. A few informed citizens have sounded the alarm, but it is difficult to find leaders who are willing to buck the unfair charges of bigotry and discrimination.

Mr. Trump, this is why we are so enthusiastic about you. We salute your leadership on protecting our borders and our citizens. It is not unreasonable to call a halt on bringing in more refugees until they can be properly vetted, not just for terrorist ties, but also their adherence to an ideology that makes it impossible for them and their children to be Constitution abiding US citizens.

We call on you to shine the spotlight on the Michigan situation, which will soon be the norm all over the country if we can’t put the brakes on this mad dash to bring in more and more refugees. We call on you to support our bold leaders like Oakland County Executive, Brooks Patterson, and the entire town council in Waterford, Michigan who stepped up to protecting their citizens, the job of all our elected representatives.

There is much to learn from the Michigan experience and a course correction is in order to hold the line in Michigan and protect the rest of the country. Please continue your bold leadership and you will have a winning issue that crosses all demographic and party lines. I really believe you when you say you will MAGA. Keep up the good work!

A Concerned Michigander

Comment worth noting: Reader likes my idea of an awards dinner for assorted haters (like me)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 30, 2016

In response to my announcement that I had made the Southern Poverty Law Center’s top 15 list of “anti-Muslim extremists,” reader 7Delta likes my idea of an annual awards dinner for Islamophobes and assorted other bigots and haters.  (Although I maintain that the SPLC is hypocritical because they truly hate ordinary Americans — “deplorables” and “rednecks”—the people I love.)

richard-cohenbw

Richard Cohen, President and CEO of the filthy rich SPLC makes over $380,000 in annual compensation for his ‘work’ (figure includes related income) silencing speech he doesn’t like. Page 7 http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2015/630/598/2015-630598743-0ca6eda4-9.pdf

This is how you must deal with the likes of the filthy rich Hard Left political activists at the Southern Poverty Law Center—as Alinsky instructed—LAUGH AT THEM!  Make them the brunt of jokes. Alinsky very astutely said that ‘humor is the most powerful political weapon!’ Let’s use it!

Without further ado, here is 7Delta fleshing out the awards dinner concept:

In reply to Ann Corcoran.

Oh wow.

I get busy and miss out on all the important news! Congratulations, Ann. I’m so honored to say I knew you before you were a certified hater. You have really come a long way from the farm girl we all know and love.

I agree that we should have a Flowers of Hateophobia Dinner. At our Garden Veritas soiree–where we’ll serve hotdogs, because we don’t have pay for play–we can give awards: Best in Hate List for Most SPLC Appearances, Best Dressed Islamphobe (I’m pretty sure Geller has that one locked up), Most Humorous Hater (Spencer’s a strong leader), Most Likely to Make the Hate List Next Year, Best Bow Tie for Hate (Dr. Warner probably has this one), Most Grandmotherly Hater Without Horn-rimmed Glasses (Guess who?). And the Grand Thorn Awards, whose recipients will receive nothing but a cheap plaque we got at a yard sale, just like everybody else: The Morris Dees Award For Not Coming Anywhere Close to Having a Poverty Palace That Avarice Bought and The Mark Potok Chinless Award for Taking It On the Chin and Not Compiling Lists to Blame Others to Compensate for Short Comings.

We really are going to have to do this. Maybe we can even give out a Veritasophobia Award or two to the most deserving or we could huddle around whoever has the biggest phone screen to show reruns of Project Veritas videos to highlight who the real liars, cheats and thieves are, since finding that many plaques at yard sales will be tough anyway. We’ll just remind everybody that the video participants/recipients are SPLC’s BFFs. Some were even members of the Clinton Administration.

Let’s do it.

I’m game, this could be a huge!

Reluctantly (because so much is happening with the refugee program), if the Southern Poverty Law Center is going to act as the mafia for the refugee resettlement contractors, I guess I am going to have to educate readers more about them. We already have a tag for the SPLC where I will continue to archive information going forward.

There have been many many critical reports about them, use your search engine and you will see what I mean.

They make millions of dollars by calling ordinary Americans “haters” and attempting to silence speech!

We’ll start here with a look at the ‘non-profit’ organization worth over $340 million. This is a recent Form 990.  Check out their board members on page 7 then the employees with HUGE salaries begin on the bottom of 7 and on page 8.

21 employees make over $100,000 in annual compensation—wow!

If you have more ideas for our ‘Bigots Gala’ (what to call it, where to hold it, more awards!) send a comment (no foul language!) to this post.

Comment worth noting: Call Congress daily! (this reader does!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 1, 2016

Editor: This is a comment from a reader ‘Mom for Trump’ who asked me to tell you this daily. So I will!

Years ago I had some experience on ‘The Hill,’ but I will tell you the place has changed over the last two decades! They simply do not want to hear from you (the peons!).  They have made it increasingly difficult for you to get a message to them and even setting foot in the place is like going in to Ft. Knox.

brigitte-gabriel-2

Our reader says: follow Brigitte Gabriel on twitter, here: https://twitter.com/ACTBrigitte

I’m going to say this over and over again for the remainder of the year!

You must call your members, you must see them at townhalls while they are campaigning, you have to picket their local offices and their homes if necessary.  Call them constantly and call their local offices too! And, you have to take an hour out of this weekend and write a decent, thoughtful and informative letter to Senator Jeff Sessions Subcommittee, here.

Congress will return in November and they will be deciding how much money will be spent to bring in over 100,000 refugees in 2017—you have one more shot to save this country by telling them no!

Frankly, I am getting really tired of all the ranting and raving I’m getting from some of you here at RRW. With all the time you are spending reading social media and yammering and yelling, you could actually be putting pressure on the only people that matter right now—on Members of Congress and Senators because they (the Republican majority!) hold the purse strings.  No money=no unvetted refugees for your towns.

And, of course you must be working to elect Donald Trump.  If Hillary is elected we are finished!

Sorry (now I was ranting!), here is the comment from ‘Mom for Trump:’

Ann, could you tell all your readers on a daily basis to call our useless Congress @ 202 224 3121 and have them say DEFUND REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM. I call daily and if enough of us do so, we can make a difference. Would you also tell your readers if interested to join @ActForAmerica and follow @ACTBrigitte. I just joined this group and I’ve learned a lot about terrorism, the Muslim Brotherhood in our country and the Islamization of our country.

Act for America is the only national grassroots organization focused exclusively on immigration (and reforming the Refugee Admissions Program) from Islamic terrorist-producing countries.

Comment worth noting: NY state reader is one heckuva brave guy!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 27, 2016

Editor: This is a comment I received from a reader, Sergeant Joe Moran, who lives in New York state. I’m not posting it because I want you to see his praise of my work here, but because of his bravery!  How many of us would have the guts to confront a Catholic priest (or a pastor) during mass?

This is posted with permission from Sergeant Moran. It is slightly edited to make it easier to read.  (I added paragraph breaks and spelled out some abbreviations.)

Hi Ann, Just wanted to thank you for your extraordinary work informing the public on the influx of refugees pouring into our country. I myself was a NYPD Forensics Sergeant assigned to the Bellevue Morgue in NYC during the 9/11/01 WTC Terror Attacks; going through what seemed like an endless eternity of body parts.

wall-of-prayers

After 911: Helping people find their loved ones was a daunting task…..

I also worked with members of law enforcement (NYPD, State Police, & FBI-Famous but incompetent). I can unequivocally tell you within these mosques, the imams were preaching nothing but hate and vitriol towards America and the citizenry within the USA.

I now reside in upstate New York, the fresh country air nourishes my lungs, which were effected by the pollutants and contaminants in the air the day of 911 WTC terrorists attacks. I’m active with the Republican party and the (USCC) Upstate Conservative Club Coalition. The only ones within these organizations who seemed to be privy to the refugee chicanery or sophistry were members of the John Birch Society, none of the others realized the magnitude or depth the refugee crisis, which is having such deleterious effect on our culture and country.

I have to applaud your courage and temerity, shining the light on such a dark axiom; that average Americans don’t have a clue. Ann you truly are an oracle of truth, and are extremely brave and courageous! Thanks to you I now know that Catholic Charities under the auspices of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops is an active agent saboteur working in tandem with the State Department and the UNHCR (UN High Commissioner for Refugees), getting paid federal US tax payer dollars completing their pseudo-philanthropic mission; which in my opinion is tantamount to treason against the USA.

The knowledge you convey to me gave the courage to stand for the truth.

I happened to be attending a mass at a Catholic Church within my neighborhood. The priest giving the sermon is an ultra liberal Anti-American zealot. He started to spout off that America should be ashamed for not admitting more refugees into country. He stated we have the personnel and resources to do so; and we don’t want to treat them like the Native American Indians, we killed all of them, he said.

That’s when I got up from my pew and proceeded to approach the front alter and politely interjected myself in to the sermon. I introduced myself as retired NYPD 911 WTC Responder Sergeant Joe Moran. I looked the priest directly into his eyes and said he was totally out of his area of expertise and couldn’t be more wrong. He replied back in an acrimonious tone: I’m not wrong and how dare I interrupt his mass.

I stated that I had every right to do so under the first amendment and this was not his mass, its our mass (the congregants and parishioners)! I told him that he was pontificating nothing but feel good politically correct propaganda for his own sinful self-righteous pride and he needs to go to confession for his lies; because he is letting the wolves right into his flock. I told him he wasn’t being a Good Shepard or sheep herder.

Then I went on to quote Abraham Lincoln ” Those who don’t stand up and speak the truth for the way the truth should be told makes cowards out of all of us”! I told the priest he is being cowardice for his own sinful self-righteous pride and emphasized that in light of recent events like the San Bernardino attacks he should be having a moment of prayer and silence for the victims of that horrendous act of terror.

Then I stated what is of paramount importance is the safety and security of the USA and its citizenry within and went back to my pew.

That following Sunday I had The Saratoga Springs Police at my door. With that said, Ann I want to thank you for dispensing and giving me the knowledge and courage to stand up for the righteous cause. Thanks for your courage and conviction. I pray for your safety and well being often.

Guest opinion: I made my calls!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 21, 2016

Editor:  From time to time we post guest columns and other comments which we think are important to highlight. And, as you know if you’ve been following RRW for the last few weeks, we have been nagging you to call your members of Congress, Senators too, and tell them to defund the Refugee Admissions Program in the on-going budget battle.

This is from one of our readers, Merrill McCarthy, who did call and has reported here (below) what she learned in the process.

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., listens as Treasury Secretary Jack Lew defends President Barack Obama's new budget proposals, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2015. Rep. Ryan, who agrees with Obama on extending the earned income tax credit to more workers without children, says he hopes that lawmakers and the administration could agree on ways to finance expanding the EITC.

Speaker Ryan holds the future of your towns in his hands! He is the decider. He will decide if the Babin initiative is placed into the Continuing Budget Resolution or not. He will be responsible for the demographic make-up of your towns for generations to come. Tell him politely, but firmly, what you think by going here: http://www.speaker.gov/contact

It is not too late, both ACT for America and NumbersUSA are urging calls to cut the funding for refugees from terror-producing parts of the world. 

One of our readers reminds us to NOT miss letting Speaker Ryan’s office know what you think as well.

Here is what one caller learned (and suggests):

I made my calls today to Speaker Ryan and others in the House to encourage them to follow the lead of Babin and Brat.

I have been making calls on various issues since the early days of the Tea Party and today was different. With the exception of Speaker Ryan there was most often a staffer on the other end of the line instead of voicemail or the dreaded message the mailbox was full.

The staffers seemed to be receptive and they listened. Nobody tried to hurry me off the phone. At first I felt sad that having such an easy time getting through meant there were not a lot of other people calling, but then the thought occurred to me that they were actively taking the pulse of the callers. Most everyone would agree that the attacks on our soil in the last couple of days are an ominous sign of how quickly we are moving toward the new normal of European style chaos.

I told the staffers that we must halt refugees from areas that are hotbeds of terrorism or from areas that are so disrupted that there is no way to vet their people. It is irresponsible to open the door that allows even one terrorist to slip through the cracks.

We also need leadership to develop sound public policy on the refugee question. For too long vested interests of the UN and the VOLAGs have been running the show. The time has long since arrived to put our citizens first. That does not mean we abandon the refugees. There is a solution that helps both US citizens and refugees by working to establish safe zones so people are able to stay in their home countries to ride out the storm.

This helps the US by eliminating the burgeoning costs of a program spending money by the billions to bring refugees here and provide them with all types of ancillary services and accommodations, including ongoing welfare and entitlement programs. And for what? Many seem to resist assimilation and more and more we are seeing homegrown jihadis. Let’s stop importing and growing terrorists.

At the cost for every refugee we help here, we could help 12 in the home country. Isn’t that a far more compassionate approach? Is it not better policy to help people stay and rebuild their own country, rather than leaving things so unstable that an ongoing vacuum is created? It seems rather cruel to pull people out of their culture, traditions, climate, and kinship and allow the UN to disperse them to the four corners of the wind.

And we have a responsibility to take care of our own first. We have veterans, the elderly, the poor and the disabled. We hear of children in this country going to bed hungry. These are the people we should be helping first. Instead we have refugees squeezing our own people out of jobs and affordable housing and draining taxpayer dollars with ongoing entitlements.

This is the time for leadership and a new paradigm in refugee policy. More and more people are waking up to the detrimental nature of what has been going on in the dark for decades. Once examined, the only thing that makes sense is helping the refugees in their own regions. It is better for them and it is better for the US citizen.

Now is the time to call Congress and stress there is an alternative to business as usual on the refugee question. Let’s reframe the argument. Help 1 or help 12? It seems like an easy argument to make.

Keep calling! They are listening!

Comment worth noting: Refugees are liars in Illinois (and where you live too!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 12, 2016

I’ve been writing about two things lately that come together in this one comment from a regular reader.

Posted to my report Saturday headlined, The big lie: refugees are not being vetted, this is what ‘domstudent11’ reports:

Basic RGB

Ann, they are indeed not being vetted! As a shocking update to the refugee family in my family member’s apartment (Evanston, IL), it turns out that these people LIED to World Relief and the church that sponsored them. They were evicted last week after doing over $4,500 worth of damage to the apartment. When the landlord tried to bill them for repairs, it turned out that EVERY piece of information they gave to World Relief and the church was a LIE. The Evanston Police are now involved. This family has gone underground. So much for vetting. Even the contractors are fooled!

What are the two important points to take away? First, refugees are not being thoroughly vetted (some not vetted at all), and that landlords are increasingly wary of leasing to refugees especially as we learned here, the resettlement contractors dropping them in your towns will not back up the refugees by co-signing their leases (amazing!).

BTW, if the lazy, fearful, complicit Members of Congress really wanted to reform this program they could make some simple fixes (initially) and one would be to make it a law that federal resettlement contractors must co-sign every home or apartment lease when they place refugees. And, make sure damages come from their own meager, privately raised funds (not from more of your tax dollars).
