I feel sure our friends at VDARE won’t mind if I post Maryland grassroots warrior Ed Hunter’s letter to VDARE about what happened on Friday evening when the indefatigable Hunter unfurled one of his highway overpass banners for French TV.
Here is Hunter’s banner for this week, but you can see others of his novel campaigns to circumvent the mainstream media and get his message directly to American citizens, at Blue Ridge Forum.
This is what happened on Friday evening as a French TV crew filmed him (from VDARE where you should go for links). In Ed’s words, but emphasis is mine:
Last week the Washington desk of the French TV station “France 2” contacted us at the Maryland Tea Party and said they wanted to go up on the overpass and conduct an interview on the Donald Trump phenomenon***. About 2 PM we arrive at the bridge over I-95 Northbound, and we set up the banners and are waving to people on the interstate below.
The rush hours is beginning and the traffic is starting to slow down as it passed under us. The French TV crew arrives about an hour later around 3 PM. They get out their big expensive TV camera, and the French reporter Valerie begins asking questions.
Some of them were hard to answer such as “What does Donald Trump mean?” or “Is this a popular provocation?” (The usual French stuff. How can you answer those types of questions?) Anyway, they get around to the subject of immigration and I can sense I am up against the usual PC wall as they try to get “racist” stuff out of me. So she says “Okay just try to summarize Trump in a way that makes sense to people in France.” So I said “Donald Trump is an American version of Marine Le Pen.” Then she asked if I supported Le Pen and I said, “Absolutely”.
Then I asked them (off camera) if they felt that way, and they replied “Oh no…it is all a stunt, we do not have a immigration problem in France. These Muslims are French. They came to France to help us rebuild France. I said. ”French built France. Why can’t you rebuild it yourself?”
They looked at me as the typical redneck American. So as we are talking the noise from the honking from the interstate is rising to a crescendo. The honking and cheers for the Trump banners are getting so loud we can’t continue the conversation. The French say goodbye and get into their car and leave. I am asking myself “What is going on? Why is everyone reacting to the banners, which read ‘CANT BE BOUGHT…VOTE TRUMP’?” The whole Interstate has erupted. Everyone below as far as I can see is going nuts and cheering and leaning on their horn and screaming out the windows “Donald! Donald!” And we are waving back and this is going on for about an hour. And we can’t figure it all out. So it’s 5:30 PM and getting dark and cold. We take down the banners and drive to Starbucks for coffee when someone calls with the news about the Paris attacks.
The very moment that the French media elites were repeating the PC leftist party line… “We do not have an immigration problem. We are multicultural” etc., the news of the Paris attacks is hitting the car radios of the people on the highway below and they are going nuts in support of Trump and his defiance of the political, media and academic elites.
I called Valerie the French reporter and she had just heard the news. All she could say is “I am so shocked…so shocked!!” I said ”Why? You had to know this was coming, you were told a million times—”. At which point she hung up. The next morning I read Ann Coulter in Mediaite: “Donald Trump Was Elected President Tonight.” And I believe he was.
I saw it happen. I watched an almost physical wave of noise and cheering and honking roll up I-95 from as far as I could see south towards DC, to where it disappeared over the horizon to the north, up towards Baltimore, New York and points beyond.
All of this only confirms again for me—for middle class Americans, immigration is THE issue of 2016. And, I urge all of you to find your place in the battle to save us—to save America. You might not have Ed’s guts to get up on a highway overpass, but find your talent and put it to work to save us from becoming Europe!
***One last thing….when we attended the Georgetown Law School pro-open borders gathering in DC a couple of weeks ago, attendees were in complete shock over what they described as the “Trump phenomenon” here.
This post is filed in a category we hope to use more often—-called ‘creating a movement.’
Addendum! Angry about Paris? READ THIS POST and do it! Tell Congress to stop the funding for the Refugee Admissions Program NOW!

We told you the other day that the owner of the shuttered Atlantic City casino—the Revel—is offering it up as a home for a massive number of Syrian refugees and now the NJ Star Ledger is chiming in with an editorial supporting the idea.
This really isn’t worth writing about except for one thing. I spent a few minutes reading the comments and am always surprised to see how vehemently Americans are opposing the resettlement of more refugees, especially those from Syria right now. And, for the most part the commenters (141 at this time) have some understanding of the impact the program will have on their communities. Almost all oppose the idea.
So read the editorial, here. And, then below are a couple of comments that jumped out at me, and I didn’t even read them all! Go visit yourself, to see which ones strike your fancy:

Can you imagine what impact that would have on AC’s infrastructure? More people in schools, more police services, more social welfare programs. Section 8 would probably pay for most of the tenants. That in itself could bankrupt AC.

@Golden Tornado @Jimmytown Trash is the least of the worries. German villages along the border are being destroyed with refugees stealing food, walking into private residences, and non-stop harassment of any female over the age of 10. No thank you.

Before setting refugees up in an Atlantic City hotel, how about getting more of the rich Persian Gulf countries (you know, the ones in the region around Syria) to take some of these refugees in? Specifically, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, and Bahrain. These countries have accepted ZERO Syrian refugees

“This is not a question of practicality or physical space, but a question of our will as Americans to help a people who are in dire need.”–Congressman Bill Pascrell Jr. (D-NJ)
Accepting and housing unvetted Syrians at the Revel is NOT good for America and NOT good for Atlantic city. We should not be manipulated into taking large numbers of potentially violent and assimilation-resistant refugees with a totally alien culture into our country. It is not in our national interest –but Predident Obama has historically done little that’s in our national interest as far as I can tell. One last question for the SLEB/ Pascrell cartel: why are we hearing nothing about the Christians –true refugees that are being slaughtered in Syria –that are barred from entry into the U.S.?
Stop feeding the r-selected 17 hours ago
To quote myself from below…
THis idea has nothing to do with altruism. As you’ve noticed there are plenty of ways altruism can be used to benefit our own citizens.
Nope, this is all about importing foreigners. Have to think about and ask “why would they want to import foreigners?”
Is there something about the current US racial and cultural mix they don’t like and want to change?
If their words and deeds are any indication, the answer is a resounding YES. Your kids are in for a rough future.
Stop feeding the r-selected 18 hours ago
Just what AC needs: more unproductive poverty to further drain the welfare system, while those in favor of imposing the burden sit in their gated communities and send their kids to safe non vibrant schools.
LOL! I especially like that last bit about “non vibrant schools.” Apparently ‘Stop feeding the r-selected’ has read a bunch of the Left/No Borders propaganda about how immigrants and refugees make communities more VIBRANT. Huh? Who says?

…..not happy that Rep. Babin (R-TX) told Laura Ingraham we should only take Syrian Christian refugees.
No surprise that Think Progress should faint at the thought that someone might actually say ‘let’s prioritize persecuted Christians’ in our Syrian refugee stream.
Think Progress is the media arm of John Podesta’s Center for America Progress, one of Washington’s hardest left (if not THE hardest left agitation groups) and a great friend of both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Here is one post we wrote on Podesta in 2009.
The article is a bit muddled indicating that the writer doesn’t understand the Refugee Admissions Program, but I’m posting this to show that the Left hates this argument—if we are going to bring in Syrians, why not Syrian Christians who we know are being persecuted and whose screening would be much simpler since they don’t have a reputation for terrorism.
Here is Think Progress writer, Emily Atkin, apparently gasping in outrage that someone should say such a discriminatory thing—America should prioritize Middle East Christians.
A Texas Congressman is calling for an immediate halt to the Obama administration’s plan to take in 10,000 Syrian refugees, saying the plan is a threat to national security and that more should be done to ensure Christian refugees are getting help.
Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX) appeared on the Laura Ingraham show on Monday to tout his latest bill, which calls for an immediate suspension of the Refugee Resettlement Program pending a “thorough examination” of the program’s costs and national security risks. The program allows the U.S. government to admit refugees when it is justified by humanitarian concerns.
But according to Babin, the program is a conduit for terrorist groups like ISIS to “set up bases of operations” in the United States, and should be suspended. At the same time, though, he said the U.S. should be doing more to accept Christian refugees.
….the vast majority of refugees to Europe are coming from Syria — and among those, the vast majority are Sunni Muslims, according to the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. And advocates say biases about which religious groups should be prioritized for resettlement could leave many affected Muslims in the dust.
By the way, one of the top posts of all time here at RRW is this one—Laura Ingraham calls for a moratorium on Muslim immigration to America.
See posts on Rep. Babin, here.
Just a reminder readers, that the number of refugees matters too—the US cannot take in the whole world or our economy will surely collapse.

Here is a short announcement from MagicValley.com:
TWIN FALLS • The III Percent of Idaho is holding a march Sunday to call for an end to the refugee program, which is run locally by the College of Southern Idaho.
Refugee resettlement has been an issue worldwide this year due to the refugee crisis triggered by the civil war in Syria, and there is a movement in Twin Falls to shut down the refugee center here, with opponents citing security and cost concerns.
“The ramifications of ignoring Idaho veterans, homeless, and students will continue to yield tragic consequences if Idaho tax dollars are shifted into a broken refugee system,” the III percenters said in the statement. “Until refugees can be thoroughly filtered, and a more reliable, systematic method of accepting refuges is implemented, we must stand in opposition.”
The article goes on to say that the group supports the bill introduced in Congress by Rep. Brian Babin of Texas that seeks to put the program on hold until the cost to the taxpayers is fully determined. One of our many posts on the Babin bill is here.
Idahoans should be urging Rep. Raul Labrador to co-sponsor the Babin bill AND urge him to push for hearings on it—he sits on the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security.
In fact he is the vice-chairman of the subcommittee responsible for the refugee program!
Although Twin Falls is not in Rep. Labrador’s district, he should be encouraged to take a lead on this issue from his all important committee leadership position. He needs to tell Trey Gowdy (the chairman!) to hold hearings on the Babin bill.
Learn more about the III of Idaho, here.
We have an extensive archive on Twin Falls, Idaho. Go here to learn more.
Labrador’s district has dodged a bullet (so far) as we learned here.
And, one more bit of news: we’ve learned that a new ‘Pocket of Resistance’ is forming in Boise!

The reporter (Lee Fang) for ‘The Intercept’ singles out a wealthy California man as its target in his piece in which he is literally freaking-out over all of us. The implication here is that without this one man, there would be no backlash against the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program.
I love to read stories like this one because it means you are having a huge impact!
By the way, he (Fang) is using Alinsky Rule 13 (we discussed Rule 13 here in 2009). Alinsky taught his followers in ‘Rules for Radicals’ to target individuals because they hurt more quickly than institutions.
And, what Fang and eBay founder Omidyar don’t want their readers to know is that there are thousands of citizens working on this issue who are paid by no one and fueled only by a desire to save America—economically and culturally! If Mr. Shillman went away today, it wouldn’t matter because we are fed by passion and patriotism, not cash.
Strident calls to reject Syrian refugees fueled by wealthy California donor
While humanitarian groups and religious charities across the country are urging the U.S. to open its arms to refugees fleeing the bloody conflicts in Syria and Iraq, a number of bloggers and political pundits are beating the drums of intolerance, using conspiracy theories and anti-Muslim rhetoric to mobilize the American public against accepting migrants escaping war.
Several of the leading voices in this effort are sponsored by Robert Shillman, a wealthy donor to conservative causes who lives in Rancho Santa Fe, a suburb of San Diego.
Shillman, who did not respond to a request for comment, is the founder and chairman of Cognex Corp., a company that produces manufacturing technology.
Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at FrontPage Magazine, has argued that the only “genuine refugees” are “Christian and non-Muslim” and that the U.S. should not accept any Muslims from the conflict in Syria because those fleeing the region “are not victims, they are perpetrators.”
This is what makes me laugh: the reporter would like his readers to think that Shillman had something to do with Spartanburg and St. Cloud. I bet the majority of those demanding answers in those cities have never even heard of Shillman.
Shillman Journalism Fellow articles about the dangers of accepting Syrian refugees have gone viral over the last two months, with versions reposted on conservative blogs and news hubs. Fear of Syrian migrants has fueled anger in small towns that fear they will become hosts for Islamic terrorists. Residents in cities such as Spartanburg, South Carolina, and St. Cloud, Minnesota, have organized opposition to the possibility of refugee resettlement efforts.
Asked earlier this year by Reuters about his support for David Horowitz and Pamella Geller, two well-known anti-Muslim activists, Shillman explained that he is not anti-Muslim, but rather simply more outspoken than most business leaders. “Most CEOs are hired guns and their future depends on what their boards think of them. I don’t give a fuck,” he said.
Best antidote to Rule 13—Rule 5! Laugh at them!
There is lots of amusing stuff in here, continue reading.

We told you the other day that concerned citizens have stepped forward in Redlands, CA to question their local elected government about any plans they might have heard about to resettle refugees in Redlands. Of special concern are the Syrian Muslims now expected to arrive in large numbers in the coming months.
This is new….
CAIR is the Council on American Islamic Relations and is active (and makes news) in demanding rights for Muslims in America. However, it is only recently that they have become publicly involved in the Refugee Admissions Program of the UN/US State Department as we told you about here in Connecticut recently (more on CT later this morning).
We have long suspected that they have been quietly advancing the Hijra to America, but again, only recently have we seen news that they are out in the open promoting refugee resettlement.
From Redlands Daily Facts (emphasis is mine):
REDLANDS >> Southern California Islamic leaders have responded to comments made by members of the Redlands Townhall and Redlands Tea Party Patriots about the possibility of Muslim Syrian and African refugees resettling in town.
Members of both groups last week asked the City Council members their plan if asked to resettle refugees. They said they were concerned that Muslims who have beliefs contrary to the United States Constitution and ties to terrorist groups could be living in Redlands.
There is no formal proposal to resettle refugees in Redlands.
Mohammad M. Hossain, founder of the Islamic Center of Redlands, said the refugees are homeless and have nothing, so everybody has a duty to help them — that they would be grateful and not commit violence.
The Islamic Community Center of Redlands in Loma Linda is inviting the public to an Open Mosque Day on Sunday in the wake of the comments made during the Oct. 6 City Council meeting.
The center in Loma Linda declined an interview but sent comments by emailed statement.
Victoria Hargrave of Redlands Townhall said on Wednesday that our nation is based on Judeo-Christian beliefs, and we value freedom of speech, freedom of religion and property rights as protected by the Constitution. She said Muslims reject these values and are coming to America to impose Sharia law.
“This paranoia and phobia is rooted in a combination of ignorance and bigotry,” said Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Los Angeles chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and chairman of the Syrian American Council in a telephone interview Wednesday about the Redlands tea party concerns.
I wonder would the mosque and CAIR be involved at all, if we were saving mostly Christian Syrians and not resettling mostly Muslims as we are now.
Concerned citizens should follow the example of the grassroots groups (the pocket of resistance) in Redlands, and go on the offensive by preemptively telling your local elected government that you are concerned about third world refugees coming to your towns especially because those refugees are going to place a large financial burden on state and local taxpayers, in addition to posing a potential security threat.

Maybe we will hit 2 million views one of these days! The video we made with the Center for Security Policy back in April has over 1.7 million views as of this writing.
Be sure to check out our second Youtube video here about the Senate Jihad Caucus wanting 65,000 Syrian mostly Muslim refugees to be admitted to America (they have recently bumped the number up to 100,000 before Obama leaves office!).
By the way, when Donald Trump says he will send them back if he should become President (we applaud his bravery in saying this), but please know that will never happen once they have been admitted during Obama’s remaining time in office and are disbursed to 48 US states (see map). Only a tiny fraction of the refugees we’ve admitted to America ever go home willingly and we have never forcefully sent any home even once their country has stabilized.
Last night our first Youtube video was shown on the Steve Malzberg show on Newsmax TV (thanks to all who notified me and to Brenda for the link).

King put forth a sensible alternative to bringing Iraqis and Syrians to the US (and thus adding them to our welfare rolls).
Here is the story at the Des Moines Register:
An organization representing the rights of Muslims in the U.S. has criticized U.S. Rep. Steve King for comments the Iowa Republican made Monday about refugees fleeing Syria.
Speaking at a rally in Sioux City with U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, King chastised the idea that the U.S. would accept Syrian Muslims, saying they would be unable to assimilate into the country.
“I can’t find models of the folks that, let’s say do the hajj to Mecca, I can’t find models where they’ve assimilated into the broader culture and civilization wherever they’ve gone,” said King, a U.S. representative.
In a statement Tuesday, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, called that statement a “bizarre claim.”
Every sensible person viewing the photos of the invasion of Europe thinks the same thing as King expresses below—why aren’t these fighting-age young men at home fighting for their country?
At the rally, King also said refugees should be trained to defend the countries they are fleeing.
“So, I say instead, the refugees that come out of Iraq and come out of Syria: first, I’d train them and say ‘go back and defend your country.’ Give them uniforms … but if you can’t get them to do that then send them to Saudi Arabia where they have the air-conditioned tents at Mecca. Those tents are not busy for 11 months out of the year and they would assimilate into that culture like a hand into a glove,” King said.
Of course, commonsense is not in vogue these days, and the Muslim ‘refugees’ are participating in the Hijra (CAIR is smoothing the way)—the migration encouraged by Mohammed to bring Islam to the land of the infidels. 97% of the Syrians being admitted to the US are Muslims.
As refugee resettlement continues unabated, you know that one day CAIR hopes to have enough voters in Iowa to get rid of King and others like him. Young patriots—have more babies!
Take a minute and contact Rep. Steve King and thank him for his forthrightness. Click here and call one or all of his offices.

Here (below) is what they say about me, and they got it right! They quoted me accurately and by snipping the interview, they made me sound more articulate!
Although they mean to jeer about what I say, I am so thrilled to have this information get out to an even wider circle. Thank you Right Wing Watch! Thank you Miranda Blue!
(By the way, I see my little youtube is now at almost 1.7 million views! Ms. Blue will you help it reach 2 million people!)
Here is Right Wing Watch (emphasis is mine):
Ann Corcoran, the head of Refugee Resettlement Watch and the leading voice against efforts to settle refugees in the United States, warned last month that President Obama is using Syrian refugees as part of his plot to “diversify every town in America” as he goes about “changing America by changing the people, literally.”
Corcoran, who has previously warned that refugee resettlement is being used to “rub diversity in the noses of conservative communities” and push “the whole multicultural meme,” told the Center for Security Policy’s Frank Gaffney on his “Secure Freedom Radio” program, “There’s going to be a demographic examination of your town to see how diverse you are, and you will be rewarded if you’re sufficiently diverse and you will be not rewarded with government grants and so on and so forth if you’re insufficient in the diversity area. It is really, he is changing America by changing the people, literally.”
Gaffney shared Corcoran’s concerns, saying that Obama “was about the fundamental transformation of America, and a key element of that strategy, it certainly seems, through the refugee resettlement and other techniques … has been to change the population, change the demographics of our society.”
Next! I will reach the pinnacle of my career if the Southern Poverty Law Center lists me on their ‘haters’ list….
Addendum: Have you been noticed by Right Wing Watch, if so, consider it an honor. If you or your group haven’t been mentioned yet, that is a goal to work toward! Please let us know if you have joined this august body!
