Maine: As Somali population grows, some angry Mainer takes extreme action; direct frustration at Catholic Charities instead

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 13, 2015

Let me be clear at the outset.  We do not condone vandalism or criminal activity of any sort, but this case does demonstrate that some are going to extreme means to try to halt the continued expansion of the Muslim population in America when elected officials in Washington aren’t listening.

As the UN and the US State Department continue to send refugees to rural areas (seed your communities), the tension will only increase.

The headline in the Portland Press Herald yesterday is: Anti-Muslim graffiti spray-painted on Portland Halaal Market:

Police label the incident a hate crime and seek the public’s help in identifying the perpetrator, a white male wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt who was caught on surveillance video defacing the building.

Portland Halal Market serves as a hub for the Somali community.

The Portland Halaal Market on St. John Street was spray-painted Sunday morning with graffiti offensive to Muslims, and police and the market’s owner are calling it a hate crime.

Police, who said the incident occurred at 5 a.m., were on the scene at 269 St. John St. later Sunday morning reviewing videotape from a security camera and talking to Mahdi Ahmed, owner of the market.

The graffiti, spray-painted in red capital letters on the windows and brick on the side of the building, referred to Allah and included a sexual epithet. Allah was misspelled as “Alah.”

“This is a hate crime,” Ahmed said.

[….]

The market opened in 2002 and serves the Somali community and others. It sells halal foods that are allowed under Islamic dietary guidelines.

[….]

The store also serves as a hub for the Somali community.

[….]

Jalali [a Muslim author at the Univ. of Southern Maine] estimated that the Muslim population in Maine is about 6,000. There are seven or eight mosques, he said, half of them in the Portland area.

“Long live the West”

Jalali said the last anti-Muslim incident in Portland that he could recall was in 2011. In that case, someone spray-painted “Go home,” “Long live the West” and other words on a wall at the Maine Muslim Community Center on Anderson Street, the city’s largest mosque.

One thing frustrated Mainers can do is to demand that no more refugees be resettled in the state.  You won’t be able to stop the influx of Somalis (or refugees generally) from other states, but you might be able to put a dent in the flow directly from Africa.

Stephen Letourneau is CEO of the $25 million a year operation—Catholic Charities of Maine—and is responsible for the refugee/asylum influx to Maine.

Don’t blame the refugees!

This is the agency directly responsible for the colonization of Maine towns (especially Portland and Lewiston):

USCCB (US Conference of Catholic Bishops)
ME-USCCB-01: Catholic Charities Maine
Address:
80 Sherman Street
Portland, ME 04101
Phone:
207-210-1501

I wasn’t planning to get too deeply into this branch of Catholic Charities, but wow, check out their most recent Form 990 here, they had a revenue stream of over $25 million and more than half comes from taxpayers in some form or another (page 9).  They had over $9 million in “Medicaid fees” alone!  What the heck is that?

For new readers, see our extensive archive on Maine, here.  Be sure to see one of our top posts of all time—Maine the welfare magnet.

Catholic Charities encouraged the first Somalis to come to Maine.

Don’t vandalize buildings!  Tell Catholic Charities and your elected officials that you don’t want any more third worlders!  You can’t afford it!

And, get behind your governor’s attempts to take away the welfare magnet!

Update on the Bosnian Muslim refugees recently arrested in US on terrorism charges

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 13, 2015

Two of the alleged terror funders: Ramiz Zijad Hodzic and his wife, Sedina Unkic Hodzic

The St. Louis Post Dispatch has a really long and detailed story of its investigation into the Bosnians arrested here in February. Reporter Robert Patrick does the kind of investigative report we rarely see anymore.

I have no time today to go through it with you, read it all here.

Remember that it was Bill Clinton who admitted as many as 100,000 Bosnians to America during his administration—laborers for his meatpacking buddies.

Notice that everytime we have a war, or even some other countries have wars (like Syria!), the UN, the US State Department and its resettlement contractors have another excuse for America to haul in more supposed ‘war’ refugees!

World Net Daily reports about Spartanburg and refugee resettlement secrecy

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 9, 2015

Reporter Leo Hohmann, who has done great work over the last year or so exposing the refugee resettlement industry in the US has posted another good piece in the wake of my post earlier in the week about how the nine major resettlement contractors are picking the towns to colonize.

I’m off to Washington this morning and have no time to say more now, so please check it out yourselves!  He cites Spartanburg, SC and St. Cloud, MN.

Read it here:

   U.S. cities ‘secretly selected’ for importing Muslims

As Minnesota goes (demographically), so goes the Nation

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 8, 2015

Here is a long article published originally at Brookings basically warning America that the white population is fading out, getting old, retiring and dying off and we better darn well educate the immigrants in order to replace us in the workforce.

So far, it isn’t going well as we learned just the other day that half of the Somali population of Minnesota lives in poverty.

Here are a few snips from the beginning of the story (I don’t have the time or patience to read it all!).

Refugee resettlement is named as one of the main reasons for the demographic shift in Minnesota (thank Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Service and World Relief renamed Arrive Ministries for that! See here!).

Minnesota and the surrounding states of the upper Midwest are experiencing a demographic revolution. Yet that fact and its significance are just beginning to sink in, which is why many residents of the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul area, whatever their own ethnicity, still refer to their community matter-of-factly as “lily white.” And while it’s true that with a 78% Caucasian population the Twin Cities are still far less ethnically diverse than other parts of the United States—among them the far West and Southeast as well as gateway cities and multicultural hubs like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, San Francisco, and Miami—it’s also becoming less true with every passing year. One big reason: immigration.

[….]

As former Minneapolis mayor R.T. Rybak says, “Our diversity is more diverse” than many other places because the state in general, and Minneapolis-St. Paul in particular, have been hubs of refugee resettlement for decades. The region has twice the share of immigrants from Southeast Asia as the United States as a whole (21% versus 10% of the immigrant population), and five times the share of immigrants from Africa as the nation as a whole (21% versus 4%).

Minnesota is home to Mexicans, Hmong, Indians, Vietnamese, Somalis, Liberians, and Ethiopians. Its people of color also include American-born Native Americans, Hispanics, Asians, and African-Americans. According to the State Demographic Center, the Asian, black, and Hispanic populations in the state tripled between 1990 and 2010, while the white population grew by less than 10%. This trend will continue: From 2010 to 2030, the number of people of color is expected to grow twice as quickly as the number of whites. As Minnesota and the region go, so goes the nation, which is also becoming ever more diversified, with an overall decline in the percentage of whites, and increase in people of color.

Read it all if you feel like it!

Got a grandchild born today?  When that child is 30, America will be a very different place.

‘Social justice’ professors lecture Alaskans on refugees, demand they be more “welcoming”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 6, 2015

And, one of the authors of this Op-Ed works with the resettlement contractor, Refugee Assistance and Immigration Service, which is Catholic Social Services.

What the ‘professors’ don’t get is that you can’t shove diversity, especially in the high numbers now arriving through refugee resettlement, down the throats of people anywhere. Imagine if we westerners wanted to go live in Somalia or Saudi Arabia and be given a guiding hand with social services and job training, etc.  Heck, they wouldn’t just write graffiti on our cars—they would kill us!

Here is how the piece at Alaska Dispatch News begins:

Co-author and scold, Rebecca Volino Robinson doesn’t care about Alaskan citizens’ rights and culture as much as she does the Somalis and other refugees arriving in Alaska. http://www.ak-pa.org/governance/boardmembers/_boardmember_pages/rebecca_robinson.htm

After about an hour-long interview, we asked our final question: “What makes you feel welcome here, in Anchorage?” The interviewee, a Somali refugee who has lived in Anchorage for less than five years, said: “The people. The people are very welcoming and friendly.”

These words from one of our research participants came to mind this weekend as we read about Mohammed Hano and Mobarak Albadawi, Darfuri refugees whose cars were vandalized with messages like “go home,” “leave Alaska,” and “you’re not welcome here.” These words again came to mind when we read that the Anchorage Police Department (APD) refused to send an officer to investigate the “vandalism incident.” And the words came to mind once more as we read piercingly negative comments to the Alaska Dispatch News’ coverage of the crime, such as, “I would love to know how much they (the refugees) are profiting from all the donations …,” and, “They come from a land of genocidal maniacs … but they are frightened by some paint from vandals … this is a simple minded hoax …,” and, “this is an incredibly minor crime … there’s zero evidence of a hate crime.”

The lecture is here if you want to hear more.

The Leftist community organizers and co-authors (Robinson and David) go on to say that the refugees don’t get much welfare (they get generous welfare for years! See ORR annual report, here), that this is probably a hate crime and that the community should be offering “love, acceptance and support” to the myriad ethnic groups being resettled in Alaska.

University of Anchorage faculty member EJR David. http://www.uaa.alaska.edu/bookstore/authors/e-j-r-david.cfm

For psychology professors they sure are dumb about the psychology of the average conservative hard-working American man or woman who see their tax dollars going to help third world migrants settle in Alaska while we have American poor people (and probably many Alaskan natives!) living in poverty.

How about taking care of our own first?  What is wrong with that?  Not cool enough for these two?

Here is a little experiment:  Let’s just say a whole host of conservative (Robinson and David might call them ‘rednecks’ in private) Americans moved up to Alaska and into the community where they live, would Robinson and David welcome their diversity? Is diversity so beautiful then?  My guess is that they would eventually move out!  But, maybe the average Alaskan who wants to maintain his or her community and culture (the one they know and love) can’t so easily move.

Why aren’t Americans permitted to preserve our culture?  Do we have no right to want to preserve our cultural and religious roots? Are we somehow less deserving of ‘humanitarian’ concern?

Is ‘social justice’ only for Left wingers and immigrants?

Be sure to see a post we wrote on Alaska, here, about the refugee flow to Alaska (thanks to the Catholics!) making it possible for the construction of a large mosque in Anchorage.

See also our post on St. Cloud community organizer and scold—Professor Luke Tripp—here.  See a pattern?  You might also want to see our post—more than half of the Somalis in Minnesota live in poverty.

Australia: Anti-sharia and anti-racism demonstrators square-off in several cities, violence breaks out

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 6, 2015

Will this be coming one day to a city near you? 

 

Reclaim Australia over Islam! In Melbourne, demonstrators were separated by mounted police.

 

We just told you about the rise of the European right in our previous post, and now we see the right fighting back in Australia as well.

A special tax on that gruesome Islamic halal slaughter was the ostensible focus of the rally by anti-Sharia activists, but so-called anti-racism demonstrators (hard Leftists) turned it into a melee in which some demonstrators were hurt.

Amazingly, proceeds from the fees that companies must pay to label their foods halal would go to Islamic organizations.

From the Daily Mail (hat tip: Brandon):

Anti-Islam protests in Australia against Sharia law and halal tax turned violent after demonstrators clashed with anti-racism activists who burned the country’s flag.

Police were forced to separate the Reclaim Australia supporters and opponents of the group in Melbourne, after clashes turned ugly and several people had to be treated by paramedics.

The protests came as companies seeking to label their foods halal – must pay fees to Islamic organisations for inspection and certification.

Recent figures show the halal sector could be worth $1.5 trillion worldwide by 2050.

Across the country, 16 rallies were scheduled to take place, with events in Sydney and Melbourne appearing to have drawn the biggest crowds.

About 500 people attended the rally held in Martin Place, Sydney, which included speeches from former Australia Defence League member Shermon Burgess and Rise Up! Australia Party NSW President Norm Bishop.

There was a strong police presence throughout the protest, which included riot police. Two people were taken away by officers after they rushed the stage and attempted to disrupt the rally. One took the microphone and told the crowd they should be ‘ashamed’.

In Melbourne, protesters clashed with anti-racism activists in Federation Square. Two people were arrested after they attempted to break through a police barricade that separated the different groups.

There is more, here, with lots of photos.

Just as we do with our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series, we post on Australia so you know that one day, as the Muslim population grows, this could be happening where you live!  Our Australia archive is here where the present government is attempting to stem the tide of Muslim migration, but possibly it is too late with the population already too high and the stealth jihad well underway.

In Invasion of Europe news, huge refugee flow into Europe fueling the rise of the right wing

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 6, 2015

This story is from the New York Times yesterday and is built around the news that Bulgaria has completed a significant border fence with Turkey in time for the spring flood of Syrians, other Middle Easterners and Africans trying to get to the more ‘welcoming’ and potentially lucrative, for them, western European countries like Germany and the UK.

Bulgarian security people believe the jihadists are in the flow.

From the New York Times (emphasis is mine):

Bulgaria attempting to keep migrants on the Turkish side of their border.

Lesovo, Bulgaria — Less than two decades after the painstaking removal of a massive border fence designed to keep people in, Bulgarian authorities are just as painstakingly building a new fence along the rugged Turkish border, this time to keep people out.

Faced with a surge of refugees from the Middle East and North Africa — and the risk that they include jihadis intent on terrorist attacks — Europe is bolstering its defenses on many fronts, including this formerly Communist country, which little more than a quarter-century ago was more concerned with stanching the outbound flow of its own citizens to freedom. For the past 16 months, Bulgaria has been carrying out a plan that would sound familiar to anyone along the United States-Mexico frontier: more border officers, new surveillance equipment and the first 20-mile section of its border fence, which was finished in September.

The hardening of the Bulgaria-Turkey border is one very visible manifestation of the agitation across the continent about the economic, social and political ramifications of the surge in immigration. With warmer weather fast approaching and more refugees likely to be on the move, nations along Europe’s southern tier are beefing up border staffing, adding sensors and other technical barriers, expanding refugee facilities, and building walls.

More than 200,000 refugees are known to have penetrated Europe’s land and sea borders last year, not including those who were able to sneak through undetected.

And the numbers for the first two months of this year, when Europe enjoyed its second mild winter in a row, were up sharply compared with the same period last year.

Anti-immigrant sentiment is increasing in Britain, France, Hungary, the Czech Republic and elsewhere across the continent. Parties espousing ethnic nationalism are seeing their support rise, some to the point where they threaten the dominance of more traditional parties.

“The rise of the right wing in Europe is a reaction to this refugee flow,” said Boris B. Cheshirkov, chief spokesman in Bulgaria for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

[….]

Slavcho Velkov, a Bulgarian security expert and university lecturer, said he believed there was more jihadist movement through Bulgaria than the authorities acknowledged.

“I have seen such fighters here with my own eyes,” he said. “I spotted some at the central bus station and struck up a conversation. When I asked them where they were going, they said, ‘We are going to heaven.’ ”

There is a lot more. Continue reading here.

We keep you informed on the ramifications of the ‘Invasion of Europe’ because the US is headed down the same path, just a few years behind Europe.

Minnesota: More than half of the state’s Somalis live in poverty, yet feds and contractors continue to pour them into the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 4, 2015

At the present resettlement rate, the US State Department will admit nearly another 10,000 Somalis to the US by September 30th, the end of the fiscal year (as of the beginning of March the contractors distributed 3,944 new Somalis to American towns and cities).

This story is from Minnesota where three US resettlement contractors are still bringing them in even if there are no jobs!

Remember in February US State Department’s mouthpiece Psaki said we must find jobs for jihadists in the Middle East. So, following their own logic, why can’t they see that by flooding America with Somalis (who can’t find work), they are creating the same explosive situation in your home towns! http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/02/17/state-department-spokeswoman-floats-jobs-as-answer-to-isis/

Who is to blame?   Lutheran Social Service (we told you about them here just last week), Catholic Charities and World Relief (renamed Arrive Ministries).  More than half of the state’s Somalis live in poverty and these so-called “Christian charities” just keep bringing them in!

Those three “charities” have seeded Minnesota with 10,000 Somalis in ten years (in addition to the thousands in previous years!).  They have created a monster!

Remember in February when US State Department Spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, said we had to find jobs for ISIS militants so that they would give up their Islamic jihad agenda!  So, why don’t they follow their own logic?   By pouring Somalis into the US (where there are no jobs), the State Department and the contractors are setting up the same potentially explosive situation?

From Minnesota Public Radio about a recent Somali job fair in Minneapolis:

As the economy picks up across Minnesota, the state’s Somali-born population continues to battle higher than average unemployment.

The most recent figures, for 2011-2013, put Somalis’ unemployment at 21 percent, about three times the rate for the general population during the same period of time.

Some Somali community leaders are concerned that the lack of opportunities can fuel despair, especially among young people.

[….]

Census numbers show that of Minnesota’s five largest immigrant groups, Somali unemployment is the highest. More than half of the state’s Somalis live in poverty.

“We have the highest unemployment rate than any other groups — including the newcomers,” Mohamud Noor, Confederation of Somali Community in Minnesota executive director, said in February. He was speaking at a news conference held in response to a White House address on countering violent extremism.

Social problems — including unemployment and a lack of opportunity — can fuel sympathy for international extremism, he said: “Almost 30 percent [unemployment]. Nobody’s talking about that.”

[….]

Mohamud Noor, who leads the Confederation of Somali Community in Minnesota, watched this week as job-seekers clustered around recruiting tables for the Department of Homeland Security, Family Dollar and Delta Global Services at the Brian Coyle Center.

He said he was pleased to see tables for the Minneapolis Police Department and Hennepin County staffed by Somali employees. But he noted the prevalence of government and nonprofit employers: “Quite honestly, I’m disappointed.” he said. “I don’t see the Fortune 500 here.”

It is all about finding them jobs. They all whine and moan, but no one ever says:   We must halt the Somali migration to America!

Judicial Watch sues DOJ for withholding documents on mysterious 2014 explosion and fire in Somali neighborhood in Minneapolis

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 4, 2015

I love Judicial Watch!

Here is the headline of their press release this week:

Judicial Watch Sues DOJ for Records Regarding Suspicious 2014 New Year’s Day Explosion at Apartment Building in Minneapolis Muslim Neighborhood

We reported on the still-unexplained fire here and here (with links to other posts on the subject).

Judicial Watch press release (hat tip: Deb):

The building was demolished within days so many feel there was not adequate time to investigate the cause of the explosion and fire.

Documents already obtained by Judicial Watch raise serious questions about source of explosion, cursory local investigation, barring of ATF agents from investigating

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice (DOJ) to obtain records regarding its response to the January 1, 2014, explosion of an apartment building in the largely Muslim Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota. The FOIA lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia (Judicial Watch v U. S. Department of Justice (No.1:14-cv-02212)).

The FOIA lawsuit, filed after the DOJ failed to respond to a March 12, 2014, FOIA request to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), seeks:

Any and all records regarding, concerning or related to the investigation of the January 1, 2014 explosion and fire at the Cedar-Riverside apartment complex in Minneapolis, Minnesota, based on searches of the FBI’s Electronic Case File system, Central Records System and Electronic Surveillance records, as well as any cross-referenced files concerning the explosion and fire.

At 8:16 a.m. on New Year’s Day in Minneapolis, a building at 516 Cedar Avenue containing a grocery store and several apartments exploded, killing three people and injuring 13. All of the apartments were occupied by single men. Many were hurt while jumping out of the burning building’s windows in order to escape the carnage.

The ultimate question!  Why are we still bringing Somalis to the US at the rate of 800-900 a month?

A picture worth a thousand words! UNHCR supplies go to ISIS

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 3, 2015

The very same United Nations agency that is choosing the refugees for your towns and cities—The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (which receives millions and millions of your tax dollars every year)—is apparently in the ISIS supply business!

This is from Allen West’s blog (hat tip: Lynn):

Well, since some people like Nancy Pelosi think terrorist groups are “humanitarian organizations” or like the Catholic university who thinks they can use some humanitarian support, is it any surprise supplies from the United Nations are finding their way to ISIS?

Yep, ISIS released these images from one of their training camps in Aleppo, and there they are, kneeling on lovely tarps carrying the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) logo.

There is more, read on!

For more on the UNHCR and the present High Commissioner, Antonio Guterres (former socialist Prime Minister of Portugal and former President of Socialist International), click here.   Guterres has 10,000 Syrians in the pipeline to America right now, while the FBI says they can’t be properly screened for security!
