Oh brother, now the New York Times is on the Rohingya bandwagon

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 26, 2015

Here we go again, the media drumbeat to bring more refugees to America is sounding!

The Leftwing media is made up of a bunch of sheep as they follow one another with the same ‘news’ stories designed to advance a political agenda—in this case they are promoting the resettlement of Rohingya Muslims to America.

When the NYT gets on the story, you know the propaganda is reaching critical mass!

Rohingya boat people arrive in Indonesia. Indonesia is a safe Muslim country and if they are legitimate asylum seekers they should be asking for asylum there. When we bring them to America we create a ‘pull factor’ and more will attempt the voyage.

Why is it a concern of the US that too many Muslims from Muslim Bangladesh are flowing to the Muslim countries of Malaysia and Indonesia?  Why can’t they just stay there, in the Muslim world, with their co-religionists?   Is it America’s job to take every poor Muslim (or every poor person for that matter) to your towns?

And, btw, just as we are preoccupied with the lobbying push to resettle 65,000 Syrians (mostly Muslims), I guess the UN and the US State Department are going to start slipping in larger numbers of Rohingya behind our backs.

Here is the NYT beating the drum with its sob story:

There are at least 200,000 Rohingya migrants from Myanmar [aka Burma—ed] already in Bangladesh, and only 32,600 of them have been granted formal protection as refugees fleeing persecution, according to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Far fewer, perhaps only several hundred, have been resettled from refugee camps in Bangladesh over the past decade and allowed to begin new lives in other countries.

In Malaysia, those determined to be refugees and therefore eligible for resettlement, a process that could take years, would be joining more than 45,000 Rohingya who are already classified as refugees and are waiting to be taken in by another country. They receive no government aid while they wait, nor can they legally take jobs to support themselves.

About 1,000 Rohingya refugees were resettled in the United States in the last year.

I told you here in 2013 that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops asked the US State Department for more Rohingya to resettle.   My research indicates that we have admitted over 12,000 “Burmese Muslims” in the last 10 years—surely most are Rohingya.

The NYT continues:

The Rohingya, a stateless Muslim people who have long faced discrimination and have been deprived of basic rights in Myanmar, are likely to meet the criteria for refugee status under international law, namely having “a well-founded fear” of persecution for reasons of race, religion or nationality in their home country.

Such an effort, however, has yet to materialize.

According to the agreement hammered out last week by the foreign ministers of Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, none of those countries agreed to host any refugees permanently.

Australia’s prime minister, Tony Abbott, said Thursday that his country would not take any refugees from the current exodus.

Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia don’t want them—-why do we?

Planned refugee resettlement in Spartanburg, SC presents watershed moment

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 26, 2015

What do I mean by that?

I mean that because federal resettlement contractor, World Relief (National Association of Evangelicals), decided to target that town, of all places, we have made an enormous leap in our understanding of how the secretive UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions and Resettlement program operates.

Bauman

Stephan Bauman is CEO of World Relief and one of 5 employees making a six-figure salary largely on your dime while advocating for 65,000 Syrians be resettled in your towns and cities! Photo: http://worldrelief.org/leadership

Additionally we are gaining a model for citizen involvement and a blueprint for what needs to happen going forward.

Spartanburg also ties in to the much larger issue in Washington right now—-should we do what the UN wants and admit 65,000 Syrians to the US in the next year or so?  World Relief is on record with a resounding—YES!

And, to top it all off, since Spartanburg happens to fall in the district of the chairman of the subcommittee responsible for the US Refugee Program, we hold out hope that oversight hearings will be scheduled soon to begin to review a program that has literally become a multi-billion dollar a year industry that is way too large and way too secretive.

Spartanburg has it all!

I think we will look back at this point in time with Spartanburg as the point where the history of refugee resettlement in America is changed forever.  I say that because there is a sea change occurring before our eyes as the public is awakening to the problems with out-of-control-immigration of every kind.

(For background see our original post with links for updates.)

Spartanburg has the most important element when a town first gets word that it has been selected by an unelected body—a resettlement contractor like World Relief—to ‘welcome’ third worlders to town.   It has an energized and active grassroots citizenry willing to demand answers and not shrink from the task when the ‘religious’ Left begins hurling accusations that anyone asking questions is automatically mean-spirited or downright racist.

One of those leading voices in Spartanburg is Dr. Christina Jeffrey who penned an excellent letter to the editor over the weekend in response to a scurrilous attack on Rep. Trey Gowdy.   The letter writer, She D’Ambrosio, said this about the Congressman:

Wish I had a job that I could waste time and taxpayer dollars on useless crap.

Dr. Jeffrey responded with this (emphasis is mine):

I read with dismay a GoUpstate.com comment, reprinted in the May 21 Herald-Journal, attacking Congressman Trey Gowdy for wasting time/money investigating a refugee program. The writer’s complaint showed a complete misunderstanding of our federal system.

However, since I first asked our congressman to look into the matter of Syrians possibly being welcomed into Spartanburg County, maybe she should blame me. A March 9 Herald-Journal article mentioned Syrians as one group that might resettle here. The State Department reports that 92 percent of Syrian refugees are Muslim (www.wrapsnet.org/Reports/InteractiveReporting/tabid/393/Default.aspx). (It has since been reported that no Syrians will be among these refugees.)

Gowdy is the ideal official to look into the Refugee Resettlement Program (RRP); not only is he our congressman, he is chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security and responsible for overseeing refugee programs.

Because Secretary of State John Kerry insists that much of the information relative to the RRP is “proprietary,” aka secret, the Gowdy committee will need to hold hearings to get answers. This will take a long time.

There is more read it all.

Call Rep. Trey Gowdy’s office and ask him to demand transparency by the federal government and its contractors when resettling refugees. Ask him to hold hearings on the whole program! Call 202-225-6030

Lesson to our readers:  Keep hounding them for answers!  You have every right to know what is being planned for your town!

World Relief’s own documents indicate they have plans to resettle Syrians to Spartanburg

Do they expect us to believe that they (World Relief) would go on record with the US Senate as one of six supposedly religious government contractors asking for 65,000 Syrians to be resettled very soon and at the same time say that none would go to Spartanburg?

We have the FY2015 Spartanburg ABSTRACT that World Relief submitted to Washington in its quest for funding and it specifically states that refugees would be resettled in Spartanburg from:  Burma, Colombia, Congo, Cuba, Iraq, Sudan and Syria.

The Abstract tells how many refugees, and from where, your town can accommodate, and what amenities your town has to offer the refugees.

All of you should continue to try to get copies of the Abstract for your town.  (See list of local contractors near you).

Based on feedback we are getting from those who have asked, citizens are being told they can’t have them and in some cases the contractor is playing dumb and pretending that they don’t know what the caller is looking for.  We think the word has gone out nationally to keep this important information from you.

If you continue to be rebuffed, ask your Congressman or US Senators to get it for you!

Our goal going forward must be to demand that Congress stop the secrecy and require that these documents about your town be public information!

If you haven’t called Rep. Trey Gowdy yet to ask him to hold hearings, please do so.  If you have already called, do it again!

About the photo and World Relief’s finances:  I checked a recent Form990 for World Relief and learned that they received gifts, grants and contributions for that year in the amount of $54,777,404.  $41,161,003 was from government grants.  They could not exist without that 75% in taxpayer funding they receive.   Their salaries are not as outrageous as other contractors, one in particular, David Miliband, the CEO of the International Rescue Committee pulls down an annual salary of nearly a half a million dollars to run a charity!

Endnote:  Is your church, as a partner to World Relief, supporting the importation of 65,000 Syrians to America right now?  Go here to have a look!

Congress seeking answers about how many asylum seekers have terror connections

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 25, 2015

This is all I have and no time today to do a search.  Since the letter is not linked, it may be older news that the reporter at the Washington Free Beacon has just found and wishes to disseminate further.  No matter because it gives me an opportunity to link a story about how Somalis skip around the world and end up on our southern border.

Who is on the bus? Somalis caught at the border and moved to a detention facility. http://www.tpnn.com/2015/05/13/video-dhs-caught-moving-somali-muslim-illegals-into-california/

It was only ten days ago that we had a report of a busload of asylum-seeking Somalis being moved to a California detention center, here.

BTW, the difference between “refugees” and “asylum” seekers is that we pick up the refugees abroad and bring them here, and then sign them up for their social services.  Asylum seekers get here on their own steam and either enter illegally or overstay a visa and apply for asylum (claiming they will be persecuted if they return home).  Once granted asylum they are eligible for all the welfare goodies too!

Here is the Washington Free Beacon story:

Congress is demanding that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) release documents detailing how many foreigners seeking asylum in the United States have been found to have ties to terror groups, according to a recent letter sent to the agency by leading lawmakers.

The letter comes on the heels of revelations by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that at least 638 aliens seeking asylum in America have been found to have connections to terrorists.

This “recent disclosure regarding the numbers of aliens found to have a ‘credible fear’ in cases where the terrorism bar to asylum eligibility may have applied raised the concern that hundreds of known and suspected aliens with terrorist connections may be attempting to take advantage of our country’s asylum system,” according to the letter, sent by leaders of four House committees on national security, the judiciary, and government reform.

There is more, read it all.

One Somali’s great travel adventures

When I wrote this post, I mentioned the globe-trotting Somalis who pay huge sums of money to get to our southern border.  Reader Leo found this account of one Somali’s travel itinerary.

The first question I have is why didn’t the hero of this improbable tale ask for asylum in the first safe country he entered?  That is the internationally understood method to request asylum.  Instead, obviously with buckets of money, he traveled to the US Southern border.

He is here now, has been granted asylum, and wants to bring the weeping wife and 12 kids to join him!

From The Other Phoenix:

Long sob story you can read yourself, then this:

Hilowle’s wife wept. She told her husband to escape, taking only the $80 and 20 Somali schilling in his pocket. At the time, a dollar was equal 35,000 schillings. Hilowle’s wife told him he had to leave, because if he died then the entire family would lose their financial support.

World traveler and now US refugee extraordinaire, Aden Hilowle, was initially cared for by Catholic Charities in Arizona.

It took eight days to reach Ethiopia and contact his friends. His father sent him $14,000 from the sale of Hilowle’s house. [He had a house to sell?  But what about wifey?—ed]

Hilowle contacted a human smuggler. For $14,000, he could get a passport and a visa to Italy, but for $7,000 he could get a visa to Cuba, from the smuggler. From Cuba, he could go to the U.S. Hilowle left Ethiopia on Sept. 15, 2009 for Cuba.

He said he flew to Dubai, Moscow, Cuba and finally Ecuador for another $2,000. From Ecuador he traveled to Columbia in the back of a semi-truck with 45 other people.

“I was nearly to die,” he said.

He traveled from Columbia to Panama, where he was detained for three months and learned Spanish.

Next, he traveled through Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala in the backs of commercial trucks.

Once, he thought he would asphyxiate. The entire truck was incredibly hot and the air was stifling. When the two drivers opened the back of the truck, Hilowle told them in Spanish he wouldn’t go back in the truck because he thought he was going to die. They threatened to leave him on the side of the road.

At the border check points the drivers locked Hilowle into a fold-up bunk bed. The room between the bed and the wall was so small Hilowle had to place his elbow against the bottom of the bed so he could breathe.

After enduring four check points, Hilowle refused to get back into the fold up bed. A police officer caught Hilowle, but the truck drivers bribed him, he said. The police officer took the money and offered to drive Hilowle to the border in his car. By the time they reached the border, they were friends. The officer said he too would like to go to America.

Hilowle traveled through Mexico from Guatemala via tourist bus, foot, plane and car. On March 3, 2010, around 5 p.m., Hilowle arrived in the border town of San Luis, Ariz., where he sought political asylum.

American border officials handcuffed Hilowle.

Like many political asylees, he was sent to a federal detention center. He refers to it as a prison.

“They give you food and shelter but no freedom,” Hilowle said. “You can’t adapt to prison.”

On Jan. 31, 2011 Hilowle was released from detention. He was granted refugee status, he said, and Catholic Charities resettled him in Serrano Village.

Surely by now wife and children have joined Hilowle and everyone lives happily ever after (on the US taxpayer)!

We are so gullible.

Norwegian politician: Let’s send 10,000 Syrians to the Arctic!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 25, 2015

The beautiful Svalbard islands. According to wikipedia, “the midnight sun lasts 99 days and polar night 84 days.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svalbard

 

 

I have so much to do on the farm today, I shouldn’t take a minute to post this, but it made me laugh and I hope it perks you up too!

Read this, and imagine now how the Leftists (normally eagerly “welcoming” refugees) must be reacting to the news that a pristine area with many national parks might be a great place to temporarily house 10,000 Syrians!  The resistance to resettling Syrians is not just in the US, but all over the western world citizens have had enough.

FrP politician Christian Eikeland: Let’s build a camp in Svalbard! Learn about the Fremskrittspartiet here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progress_Party_%28Norway%29

From The Nordic Page:

While the Conservatives (Høyre) and Frp oppose the idea of accepting 10,000 refugees for next two years due to hosting capacity in municipalities, FrP politician Christian Eikeland proposes an extra ordinary solution.

– If the Parliament accepts that Norway should accept 10,000 refugees by rejecting the capacity argument, then we can create a refugee camp in Svalbard, says Eikeland to NRK.

He notes that the camp can be used to host refugees from Syria for a temporary period till other munuicipalities offer a place.

Christian Eikeland is aware of the challenges related to the harsh weather and social conditions in Svalbard, but still believes it is possible.

Svalbard is a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. Situated north of mainland Europe, it is about midway between continental Norway and the North Pole.

[….]

The archipelago features an Arctic climate, although with significantly higher temperatures than other areas at the same latitude. The flora take advantage of the long period of midnight sun to compensate for the polar night. Svalbard is a breeding ground for many seabirds, and also features polar bears, reindeer, the Arctic fox, and certain marine mammals. Seven national parks and twenty-three nature reserves cover two-thirds of the archipelago, protecting the largely untouched, yet fragile, natural environment. Approximately 60% of the archipelago is covered with glaciers, and the islands feature many mountains and fjords.

Sounds beautiful!

It has taken nearly 100 years, but the increasingly successful “Cultural Marxism” is responsible

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 25, 2015

We had a couple of good comments to our post over the weekend about ‘Ireland ‘welcoming’ Muslim ‘refugees,‘ and at the same time voting to make gay marriage legal in the heretofore largely Catholic country.

‘Cultural Marxism’ is succeeding in Ireland and America as it has seeped into every one of our institutions, most especially the churches

I  bet that even some of the leaders of the ‘church’ refugee resettlement agencies have no clue where all this came from and what they are doing to America.

ISIS photo showing gay man being thrown to his death. So where are the Progressives condemning their brothers in arms, the Islamists? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2913733/Thrown-roof-stoned-death-crucified-world-reacts-horror-terror-Europe-new-ISIS-executions-medieval-brutality-jihadists-bring-West.html

 

Here is one commenter (Jim) in response to my comment about the only weapon the other side has (and it keeps most good people at bay) are the words racist, xenophobic, Islamophobic etc. etc.  I said it is time, past time, to stop being frightened by words!

Jim (LOL!  I never heard the word “Progs” (short for Progressives) to describe the hard Left.  I like it!).  Comment to this post:

I just call them ‘euphemisms’ any more. I saw what I thought was a very good post about progressivism and its lust for the death of the West. PC was born in the Ivy League and Berkeley, spawned by the ’60s and ’70s radicals who decided to destroy the system from within. They are succeeding beyond their wildest dreams. Saul Alinsky was their Messiah and Chicago is their Bethlehem. Old news I know, but amazing. Robert Bork’s ‘Slouching Toward Gomorrah’ was spot on.

“Progs” have a strange affection for Islam. Islam is an enemy of much of what Progs hate about western civilization such as – Christianity (and now Judaism), capitalism, individualism, and constitutional limits on government. So they are fellow travelers in that regard. Of course Progs claim they are defenders of gays and women and minorities, but you notice they are willing to look the other way if it is Muslims doing the oppressing of gays and women. In fact they will actually criticize those same people and defend Muslims in those situations. It is not bizarre if you pretend to think like a Prog – in their world anything that destroys the “evil” which is western civilization is therefore good.

In that regard Progressivism is a religion. As has been said so many times before, you do not need a god for it to be a religion, all you need is a devil. The devil is “the west”.

I maintain that what happened in the ’60s and ’70s has roots that go farther back in our history.

The counter-culture of that period (’60s and ’70s) was one of the first visible signs that “Cultural Marxism” was succeeding.

Years ago, when we (here at RRW) discussed the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States, we wrote several posts about how the US got to this point in our history and we told you about this short description of “Cultural Marxism” by William S. Lind.  You must read the whole thing to better understand that for the revolution to succeed (in order for Marxism to succeed and destroy Capitalism) they needed first to destroy Western Civilization, the family and the church.

William Lind (emphasis is mine):

In his columns on the next conservatism, Paul Weyrich has several times referred to “cultural Marxism.” He asked me, as Free Congress Foundation’s resident historian, to write this column explaining what cultural Marxism is and where it came from. In order to understand what something is, you have to know its history.

When Hitler came to power, the Frankfort School moved to Columbia University in NYC, Barack Obama’s alma mater. https://www.marxists.org/subject/frankfurt-school/

Cultural Marxism is a branch of western Marxism, different from the Marxism-Leninism of the old Soviet Union. It is commonly known as “multiculturalism” or, less formally, Political Correctness. From its beginning, the promoters of cultural Marxism have known they could be more effective if they concealed the Marxist nature of their work, hence the use of terms such as “multiculturalism.”

Cultural Marxism began not in the 1960s but in 1919, immediately after World War I. Marxist theory had predicted that in the event of a big European war, the working class all over Europe would rise up to overthrow capitalism and create communism. But when war came in 1914, that did not happen. When it finally did happen in Russia in 1917, workers in other European countries did not support it. What had gone wrong?

Independently, two Marxist theorists, Antonio Gramsci in Italy and Georg Lukacs in Hungary, came to the same answer: Western culture and the Christian religion had so blinded the working class to its true, Marxist class interest that Communism was impossible in the West until both could be destroyed. In 1919, Lukacs asked, “Who will save us from Western civilization?” That same year, when he became Deputy Commissar for Culture in the short-lived Bolshevik Bela Kun government in Hungary, one of Lukacs’s first acts was to introduce sex education into Hungary’s public schools. He knew that if he could destroy the West’s traditional sexual morals, he would have taken a giant step toward destroying Western culture itself.

In 1923, inspired in part by Lukacs, a group of German Marxists established a think tank at Frankfurt University in Germany called the Institute for Social Research. This institute, soon known simply as the Frankfurt School, would become the creator of cultural Marxism.

To translate Marxism from economic into cultural terms, the members of the Frankfurt School – – Max Horkheimer, Theodor Adorno, Wilhelm Reich, Eric Fromm and Herbert Marcuse, to name the most important – – had to contradict Marx on several points. They argued that culture was not just part of what Marx had called society’s “superstructure,” but an independent and very important variable. They also said that the working class would not lead a Marxist revolution, because it was becoming part of the middle class, the hated bourgeoisie.  [I believe that the reason the Left is pouring immigrants into America is because the US working class is generally moving up in society and they need a constant infusion of poor people to keep the pressure on.—ed]

Who would? In the 1950s, Marcuse answered the question: a coalition of blacks, students, feminist women and homosexuals.

The modern-day ‘brains’ behind ‘Cultural Marxism’ (including Barack Hussein Obama) have simply added immigrants, especially Muslim immigrants, to the list of those who would help bring down Western Civilization.  But, of course, I think they have a tiger by the tail and the minute the Islamists gain enough power they will rise up and destroy the pandering Left first.  Some of my friends believe the Communists will control the Islamists.  I don’t.

Lind concludes:

The next conservatism should unmask multiculturalism and Political Correctness and tell the American people what they really are: cultural Marxism. Its goal remains what Lukacs and Gramsci set in 1919: destroying Western culture and the Christian religion. It has already made vast strides toward that goal. But if the average American found out that Political Correctness is a form of Marxism, different from the Marxism of the Soviet Union but Marxism nonetheless, it would be in trouble. The next conservatism needs to reveal the man behind the curtain – – old Karl Marx himself.

There is no sense dwelling on it, and yakking about it!  It is important to know history, but now back to work exposing the specific details about how the “Progs,” the Marxists, are working day and night to destroy your family, your church and Western Civilization and how you might stop it!

It’s Sunday morning, is your church supporting the resettlement of third-worlders, Muslims, to America?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 24, 2015

Because we have so many new readers I decided to remind all of you that six of the nine major refugee resettlement contractors pretend they are working for all of you (good Christian and Jewish people) when they resettle thousands of refugees to hundreds of towns and cities across the country (and leave the refugees struggling on their own after only a few months!).

Welcome one and all to America! Bishop Eusebio Elizondo, M.Sp.S., auxiliary bishop of Seattle and chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) Committee on Migration. Bishops cheer Obama: http://www.usccb.org/news/2014/14-196.cfm

If your church is affiliated with any of these ‘religious’ groups (federal government contractors all), you must begin to ask your local pastors, priests and rabbis what they are doing.  I bet most have no clue about what is being done in their name!

Maybe tell them if they want to give real Christian and Jewish charity they can give time or money to help refugees where they live in the world, or bring a family to America, take care of them and assimilate them without passing their care, or the cost of their care, on to US and local taxpayers. 

Now that would be real charity!

The groups in red are paid millions of your tax dollars to resettle refugees across the country.  As members of the Refugee Council USA, they all lobbied Senators this week to support bringing in 65,000 Syrians very soon.

They all lobbied for the ‘Gang of Eight’ Senate (so-called) Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill and they all support Obama’s decision to spread the tens of thousands of Unaccompanied Alien Children across the country.  And, no surprise, they endorsed Obama’s New Americans plan to “seed” your communities with “new” citizens.

Rohingya Muslims are definitely being brought to American towns

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 24, 2015

We’ve suspected that the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the US State Department are working to bring Rohingya boat people, who arrive illegally in Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand to America, but yesterday we learned that 1,000 of them have come recently.

 

rohingya-migrants-may-16

A Rohingya-packed boat adrift in Thai waters last week. The breakdown of borders is happening all over the world.

 

This is what we reported earlier in the week:

How many Burmese refugees are we taking?

The mostly Christian Burmese are one of the largest (if not the largest) ethnic group of refugees we have resettled since 2005 (I checked the data from January 2005 until May 1, 2015).

This is what I learned:  We resettled 140,812 Burmese refugees since 2005.

This surprised me:  In that number were 12,615 Burmese Muslims!  The word Rohingya is not used, but most certainly the Rohingya represent a large portion (if not all) of that number.

According to activists, the UN is not moving the Burmese Muslims out to third countries fast enough!  And, there are 45,000 of them registered with the UN and expecting to be moved to the West.

Here is what we just learned, from the Borneo Post:

ALOR SETAR: A Rohingya welfare body in Malaysia is pressuring the United Nations (UN) to expedite re-settlement of Rohingya refugees to third countries.

Rohingya Society in Malaysia (RSM) chairman Dr Abdul Hamid Musa Ali said as of today, about 2,000 of the tens of thousands of Rohingya refugees residing in the country had been successfully placed in several third countries.

He said the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) should play a role in safeguarding the welfare of Rohingya refugees in Malaysia.

“It is very disappointing as many questions are being raised on how just only 2,000 Rohingya refugees have been successfully relocated to third countries, from about 45,000 refugees registered with the UNHCR.

“This does not include the 60,000 to 70,000 Rohingya immigrants in Malaysia who are still not registered with the UN agency for refugees until now,” he told Bernama here today.

Abdul Hami, who is a Rohingya refugee and UNHCR card holder, said until today, just over 1,000 Rohingya refugees were re-settled in the United States, and the rest in several European countries.

There will be a regional summit on May 29th in Bangkok, Thailand in order to try to figure out what to do for the thousands of boat people arriving from Burma (Myanmar) and Bangladesh.  Be sure to watch the film clip here and see that one refugee says—THEY ARE LOOKING FOR A MUSLIM COUNTRY IN WHICH TO LIVE.  That is great!  There are many to choose from (including Indonesia, Malaysia and heh! how about Saudi Arabia?).

Get used to that ‘R’ word—Rohingya—listen to pronunciation here.

It appears that the PR push is on and that as we express our concerns about Syrian refugees arriving in the US in large numbers, the Rohingya are being quietly resettled here along with the thousands of Iraqi and Somali Muslims each year.

See our Rohingya Reports category here (it includes 177 posts and extends back almost 8 years).  Here is one post from 2008 where we said that as early as 2002, Time Magazine linked Rohingya refugees to Islamic terrorist groups.  You might be interested to see this post as well.  In 2012 a reader alerted us to the fact that the US State Department had removed from a terror watch list a group linked to Rohingya.

The next time you hear one of your friends or some dumb politician say that ‘LEGAL immigration is good,’ remember that this is legal!

Ireland taking in more Rohingya Muslims; Syrians too

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 23, 2015

The Irish Times has published one of those touchy-feely articles about how the Rohingya, who have already arrived in Ireland, are faring.  Articles like this one are meant to ‘educate’ readers in advance of a new wave of Muslim migrants coming in from countries where warring factions are producing ‘refugees’ by the millions.

Changing Ireland! The Islamic Cultural Center of Ireland was “funded by the al-Maktoum Foundation of Dubai and has a Sunni orientation. It was officially opened in 1996 by President Mary Robinson and Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum.” http://curiousireland.ie/islamic-cultural-centre-of-ireland/

We are told that Ireland had some problems (the Times calls them “hiccups”) with Muslim teenaged boys and young men who didn’t want to stay in school, but that generally the Rohingya are doing well.  However, they aren’t happy with the modest mosque they found in their new town:

There were other problems. Assured that by the Irish authorities that Carlow had a mosque, and imagining a full minaret, the new families arrived to find just a house used by the town’s tiny Muslim population. For orthodox Sunnis who had escaped religious persecution in Burma it was a disappointment. They now worship at an apartment in the town.

Rest assured, as more arrive from throughout Asia and the Middle East, some rich country (United Arab Emirates? Saudi Arabia?) will build them a lovely mosque.  The mosque will then draw in more Muslims (take note Carlow!).

You can read the whole article here.

The Irish Times does admit this:

Some aren’t so sympathetic. This week an Irish Times poll found that 52 per cent of Irish people are against taking in fleeing Mediterranean migrants.

And, see this one from earlier in the week about the next batch of mostly Muslim refugees on the way.

But, at the end of the story published today, there is a useful summary of where Ireland stands now with the arrival of migrants (thanks to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees) as part of the ‘Invasion of Europe.’

Ireland is one of only 30 states that take part in the refugee resettlement scheme, a United Nations programme.

Since it began here, 15 years ago, 1,198 programme refugees, from 27 countries, have been resettled in Ireland.

The UN declares them refugees before they arrive in Ireland, and they do not go through the direct-provision system for asylum seekers.

Three hundred refugees are due to come to Ireland under a new EU scheme. Civil war in Syria and the large numbers of migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean in dangerous boats have made the need even more pressing.

Buddhist monks want to keep the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) out of Burma (Myanmar) as it tries to insert itself into the Rohingya controversy there. The OIC has great influence in the United Nations which is picking most of Ireland’s refugees.

In 1999, Ireland agreed to take 1,000 Kosovan refugees; they were resettled in Millstreet, Co Cork; Killarney; Waterford; and Wexford. Many later returned home.

In 2006, 180 Iranian Kurds who had been living in refugee camps in Jordan for 25 years were resettled in Carrick-on-Shannon and Dublin under a UNHCR programme.

In 2007, 100 Burmese Karen people were resettled in Ballina and Castlebar, after coming from Thailand under the UNHCR programme.

In 2008, 71 Sudanese were resettled in Kilkenny city, after transferring from Uganda, also under the UNHCR.

In 2009, 13 Burmese Rohingya families – 64 people in all – were resettled in Carlow town from Bangladesh, under the auspices of the UNHCR.

In 2013, 31 Afghans and four Iraqi Palestinians were admitted from Syria.

In 2014, 90 Syrian refugees fleeing their country’s civil war were resettled from Lebanon with relatives and friends around the country.

This year, 13 Syrian refugees of a projected 100 have arrived; 120 more people, also mainly Syrian, are due next year.

Ireland has separately agreed to admit 114 other refugees under a Syrian humanitarian admission programme.

See our entire ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive by clicking here.

Also, for more on Rohingya then you ever wanted to know, see our Rohingya category here with 176 previous posts.  There is a newly energized push to get Rohingya Muslims moved to first-world countries.

Every time I see one of these articles about the “persecuted” Rohingya without any mention of the atrocities perpetrated by the Rohingya against the Buddhist Burmese, my blood boils.  I have followed the issue in Burma and Bangladesh for years and know that the Rohingya are not pure-as-the-driven-snow and have been Islamist supremacist agitators and killed many Burmese, but that is NEVER mentioned by the likes of the Irish Times!

To my Irish friends:  See this youtube clip about this blog and how I got into all of this…..it is now over a half a million views!

Refugee Council USA: lobbying arm for refugee contractors on the move

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 22, 2015

In our previous post we reported that the Refugee Council USA (RCUSA) apparently played a role in getting those 14 Senators signed on to a letter urging Obama to open the flood gates to 65,000 Syrian refugees before his term in office expires!

I’ve mentioned RCUSA over the years, but honestly may have underestimated the role this consortium of non-profits play in advancing an open borders agenda by lobbying Congress and promoting secrecy about refugee resettlement in towns and cities across America (indeed they apparently are informing the 350 plus resettlement contractors to give no information to any of you calling your local resettlement offices looking for information on what is planned for your towns.)

Here are the members which pay “dues” to belong to this lobbying arm for the resettlement industry.

I sure hope they aren’t using our tax dollars for their dues!  (Those in red are the nine major resettlement contractors):

Here is what they do (important to understand that ‘advocacy’=lobbying):

RCUSA is a member-driven coalition and its funding comes solely from member dues. There are a number of standing committees that serve to structure the on-going work of the coalition. In addition to these committees, members are informed daily through RCUSA communications about meetings, events, and other relevant information pertaining to refugee and displacement issues.

General Council: The executives and/or officers from each member agency meet regularly to discuss the council’s work and reach consensus on key advocacy positions and other relevant issues.

Advocacy Committee: Individuals from each member agency meet bi-weekly in Washington, D.C. to coordinate legislative and administrative advocacy efforts at the national and local level.

The committee works together to advance refugee protection, strengthen the United States Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP), educate policymakers about the value of refugee protection and a strong resettlement program, and promote adequate funding for refugees. Katie Conway, Immigration and Refugee Policy Analyst, Episcopal Migration Ministries, currently chairs this Committee.

Go here for more!

Leadership of RCUSA

Chairmanship rotates and the present chair is Anastasia Brown of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, here.  Brown is the contractor/lobbyist I observed who asked that we resettle more Rohingya Muslims here in 2013.

Refugee Council USA is chaired by the executives of member agencies on a rotating basis and has two full time staff.

RCUSA Chair: Anastasia Brown, Director of Resettlement Services of Migration and Refugee Services, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops

Anastasia Brown is the Director of Resettlement Services, Migration and Refugee
Services, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (MRS/USCCB). She has over 18
years of experience with refugee resettlement and is familiar with both overseas and
domestic resettlement issues. USCCB resettles approximately 28% of all refugees that
enter the United States. Ms. Brown served as the Chair of the Resettlement Committee
of the Refugee Council USA from 2008-2010. Ms. Brown served as the NGO co-chair
for the joint US Government/Refugee Council USA working group for the East Asia
Pacific Region from 2004-2007 and the Misrepresentation/Fraud Workgroup from 2004-
2006.

Prior to joining MRS/USCCB, Ms. Brown worked for the International Catholic
Migration Commission processing refugees from Vietnam under the Orderly Departure
Program.

To concerned citizens!  Do not get discouraged when you see the lobbying power and the money behind the refugee resettlement industry and know that you are having an impact!  You have every right to know every detail about who is coming to your towns and what these unelected advocacy groups are planning!

14 US Senators tell Obama: Bring MORE Syrians to America (65,000 is a good number!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 22, 2015

Update May 24th:  Be sure to see Leo Hohmann’s good article at World Net Daily on this newest push for a mass infusion of Syrians into the US.  Also, on this Sunday morning is your church indirectly supporting the resettlement of 65,000 mostly Muslim Syrians to America?  Click here.

Urgent update!  If your Senator is listed here, you really need to get the word out so that they get an earful from constituents!

Breaking News:  According to Durban’s press release, all nine federal resettlement contractors are urging Obama to bring in 65,000 Syrians before his term ends!

Led by Senators Dick Durban (D-IL) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) (we don’t have enough Muslims in Minnesota yet!), fourteen US Senators are urging Obama to open the flood gates to the Syrian (mostly Muslim refugees) the UN has picked for us and that the refugee contractors are now lobbying for us to take.

[See yesterday, Syrian resettlement as jihadi pipeline!]

Here is Senator Durban’s press release and a portion of the letter:

NH Senator Jeanne Shaheen: Let’s bring in 65,000 Syrian refugees! It is our moral duty! Shaheen is one of 14 Senators who have asked Obama to open the flood gates!

 WASHINGTON—U.S. Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) today led a group of fourteen senators in calling on President Barack Obama to significantly increase the number of Syrian refugees allowed to resettle in the United States. The Syrian conflict has led to the world’s worst ongoing humanitarian crisis and the worst refugee crisis since World War II.

“Our nation’s founders came to our shores to escape religious persecution and the United States has a long tradition of providing safe haven to refugees,” the senators wrote. “The United States traditionally accepts at least 50 percent of resettlement cases from the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). However, we have accepted only approximately 700 refugees since the beginning of the Syrian conflict, an unacceptably low number. While the United States is the largest donor of humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees, we must also dramatically increase the number of Syrian refugees that we accept for resettlement.” [The number is actually 843/92% Muslim.—ed]

Not a single word about the fact that these members of the Refugee Council USA have a financial interest in bringing in this huge number of Syrians that the FBI has already said cannot be properly screened!   “Nonpartisan” my foot!  These members of the Refugee Council USA are all members in good standing of the hard LEFT.

Indeed, we cannot expect countries hosting Syrian refugees to continue shouldering such a disproportionate burden if the United States and other industrialized countries do not begin resettling many more Syrian refugees. UNHCR is seeking to resettle 130,000 Syrian refugees over the next two years and has thus far submitted more than 12,000 resettlement cases to the United States for consideration. Refugee Council USA, a nonpartisan coalition of the leading U.S. refugee organizations (including Church World Service, HIAS, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries, USCCB, National Association of Evangelicals’ World Relief), recently called for the United States to resettle at least 65,000 of these Syrian refugees by the end of 2016[This is news! Initially only the International Rescue Committee called for 65,000, now we see it is all of the so-called ‘religious federal government contractors.—ed]

[….]

In short, it is a moral, legal, and national security imperative for the United States to lead by example in addressing the world’s worst refugee crisis of our time by greatly increasing the number of Syrian refugees who are resettled in our country.

Funny that Durban doesn’t list the other signatures on the letter in his press release.  In order to see them, go here, to the RCUSA website.

Here they are:

Al Franken (D-MN)

Patrick Leahy (D-VT)

Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)

Patty Murray (D-WA)

Robert Menendez (D-NJ)

Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)

Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)

Christopher Coons (D-DE)  LOL! Delaware hasn’t taken a refugee in a couple of years!

Tim Kaine (D-VA)

Edward Markey (D-MA)

Sherrod Brown (D-OH)

Mazie Hirono (D-HI)  LOL! Last I looked Hawaii took a whole 7 refugees last year!

One must assume that by mentioning the 65,000 desired by the refugee resettlement contractors (via RCUSA), all 14 are on board with the number!

How about if we divide 65,000 by the 14 above and put 4,642 Syrians in each of their home towns!

Endnote:  I have more to say and may edit this post or add a new one, just wanted to get this news posted before I lose internet connection again today.
