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

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 27, 2016

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sincerely, Retired NYPD 911 WTC Responder Sergeant Joseph Patrick Moran.

Thank YOU, Sergeant Joseph Patrick Moran!

Join ACT for America next week in Washington, DC

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 1, 2016

There could not be a more perfect time for you to attend the annual ACT for America Conference scheduled for September 6th and 7th in Washington, DC.

Brigitte Gabriel

Brigitte Gabriel: The time is now as Congress returns from a long summer break and addresses the funding for Obama’s last refugee wish list.

Hear from Brigitte Gabriel and a host of important speakers on the topic of immigration, refugee resettlement and the security threats we face from both.

ACT is the only national grassroots organization that puts reform of the Refugee Program as a top priority!

A very special guest will be Phil Haney, Department of Homeland Security whistleblower and author, who will speak on ‘Refugee Vetting: Is our security at risk?’

And, this is what Ms. Gabriel said in a recent e-mail recognizing the critical need to let Congress know now how you feel about the ever-expanding UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program and how it will impact you and your town.

This is an “all hands on deck” moment. Congress can decide to not fund those numbers or not. Congress can stop him.


Our counter voice needs to be heard. We need to show up in force and send a clear message to Congress. Not only NO but Hell NO to more unvetted refugees in America.

Due to this impending event [lobbying push by the advocates for 200,000 refugees for next year—ed] , we have dramatically slashed our national conference rate to our rock bottom cost of only $229/registration. We are doing all we can to have you with us. This is a crucial showdown between the patriots who love this country, and those who are trying to destroy it.


If you are not there, Congress will assume Americans don’t care. They will only hear the loud voices of our rivals and will assume we are perfectly OK with more refugees. This is why it is critical that we have you with us at ACTCON 2016 so we can tell Congress “NO” to Obama’s proposal.

Silence from those who oppose refugee resettlement is the same as support for them. This is the time when patriotic Americans must speak up.

I want to say that some of the hardest working, patriotic and most dedicated citizen activists I met on my 30-day tour of American communities facing refugee overload problems were the ACT for America members.

You have until tomorrow, September 2nd, midnight, to meet some of those great people in Washington!

Go here to register!

Read this and stiffen your spine! Laugh at them when they call you racist

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 27, 2016

Or, if it’s your style, react as the Governor of Maine did in his profanity-laced tirade against a Democrat law maker.

When you think about it, all they have is to call you a racist (or fancier versions of the same word—a xenophobe, a nativist, an islamophobe) when you raise concerns about the costs of refugee resettlement, security concerns, and the impact on social cohesion brought by forced multiculturalism to your communities.  And, the progressive left has been getting away with defeating us for decades by rolling out that charge.

I say, call me whatever you want, then laugh at them and move on!

Once you defeat the power of that word by not caring that it is used against you, you win.

Watch this hilarious clip of Hillary’s attack on all of us “racists” and the so-called ‘Alt Right’ earlier this week (and spread it far and wide)!


Now see what Maine Governor LePage said in the same week that Donald Trump turned the tables on Clinton and called her a “bigot.”

From Leo Hohmann at WND:

Maine Gov. Paul LePage went ballistic Thursday after several Democratic politicians labeled him a “racist” over comments he made about the demographic makeup of drug trafficking suspects in his state.

Drew Gattine

Rep. Drew Gattine a “socialist (expletive)” according to Gov. LePage.

LePage went on a profanity-laced tirade in a voicemail message in which he challenged Democrat state legislator Drew Gattine to prove he was a racist, the Portland Press Herald reported.

“Mr. Gattine, this is Gov. Paul Richard LePage,” a recording of the governor’s phone message says. “I would like to talk to you about your comments about my being a racist, you (expletive). I want to talk to you. I want you to prove that I’m a racist. I’ve spent my life helping black people and you little son-of-a-bitch, socialist (expletive). You … I need you to, just friggin. I want you to record this and make it public because I am after you. Thank you.”

LePage later confided in reporters he’d like to settle the score with the “snot-nosed little guy” Gattine in an armed duel.

Charges of racism and bigotry from the Democrat Party are nothing new, of course.

But what is new is the reaction by Republicans.

And it’s being led by the Trump phenomenon.

Reception and Placement Abstracts: get them and use them!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 22, 2016

Knowledge is power!

We’ve been talking about those pesky R & P Abstracts for more than a year now and some of you are starting to get-it and get them!

By ‘get-it’ I mean that these documents, prepared at the level of your local resettlement contractor with the help and guidance of one of the major nine federal contractors, are the blueprints for what is being planned for your town for the upcoming fiscal year.

Update: I’ve been talking about all of this for so long I forget that new people don’t know how to find a contractor near them.  Go here and find an office near you (any of the agencies within a hundred miles of you could be bringing refugees to your town).  Call or write to the office and ask for a copy of the FY2017 R & P Abstract.

Fiscal year 2017 begins October 1, 2016.


Speaker Paul Ryan and other Catholics of Wisconsin must have run out of poor Americans to take care of as they pour the third world into Milwaukee. His hometown of Janesville doesn’t get any refugees yet, maybe it’s time some are sent there?

It is my contention that the public is entitled to this document in advance because you have a right to know what Washington has planned for your town (especially because you are paying for this!)

You should be told about this plan before it even goes to Washington where it becomes the basis for the President’s ‘determination’ in September when he sends his wishlist for how many refugees Congress must fund for the upcoming year.   For eight of the last nine years that I’ve been following the program, Congress says NOT a word and just takes the Presidential determination with a ‘yes master, anything you say, master’ attitude.

Last year there was a little push-back, but ultimately Congress (Speaker Paul Ryan!) agreed to pay for the increased number of new refugees (from the average of about 70,000 to 85,000 for FY16) to accommodate the Syrian influx.

So here we go again. Obama has one more shot at changing America by changing the people. The minimum number we can expect Obama to propose is 100,000.

Before I get to what an Abstract looks like and what you should do with it when you get it, I want to say that not only should communities have this document and see it published in a local newspaper, but it should be discussed in the community before it is finalized.  I recommend that every ‘welcoming’ community hold a public hearing at the mayor/council level to discuss the numbers being proposed and the amenities the town is offering the refugees.

[Note to long time readers, we have done this exercise before, see especially here when I obtained the R & P Abstract for a new resettlement site—Reno, NV. Perhaps re-read that post now. And, I encourage your local research teams to read through the ‘Proposed Refugee Admissions for Fiscal Year 2016, report to Congress’ by clicking here as part of their investigative work.]

Why do I know that the R & P Abstracts are important for you to obtain?  Because the contractors do not want you to see them! In fact one of the nine contractors (maybe all of them!) sent a message to their subcontractors this past year specifically instructing their offices to NOT give them out to anyone who calls.  So what are they hiding?

Despite attempts to keep them from public view, some of you are successfully obtaining your local Abstracts and a few are actually receiving the plan for FY2017 and not the older ones.  Of course in many of these cases it has taken a Freedom of Information Act request, but at least you have them.  A few of the ones I have seen are not complete based on the 16 pages of the document for Reno, NV which includes VERY useful and informative letters of support from various entities and agencies including the local Islamic Center.

Let’s have a look at the troubled city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin!

Clearly the African-American community there is troubled!  That is a given (you would have to be living under a rock to not know that!).

CC Wisconsin

So what is the US State Department planning for Fiscal year 2017 with the paid help (you pay them!) of three resettlement contractors?  They will be dropping off a total of 925 more impoverished people from Burma, Somalia, Iraq, DR Congo, Sudan, Afghanistan, Bhutan (Nepal really), Eritrea and Ethiopia in FY 2017 alone to compete with the local African American community for work and for ‘services.’

There are three federal contractors (bidding for bodies) with offices set up in Milwaukee (three! why is there a need to have three agencies doing the same work?).  They include the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Inc.), USCRI (International Institute of Wisconsin), and the Ethiopian Community Development Council (Pan-African Community Association).

The Catholics say they want 500 refugees (included in their wish list are devout Rohingya Muslims from Burma).  USCRI wants 300 and ECDC wants 125.

In light of the trouble Milwaukee has right now, if there was a public hearing in advance of these documents going to Washington, isn’t it likely that members of the public would say—well hold on here, we have a lot of problems we need to solve right here at home before we invite the world’s poverty to Wisconsin!

We will look at the R & P Abstract for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee (which also serves Sheboygan). (I confess I don’t know what every line of the document means!)



Screenshot (3)


Of course you can see the location and the agency name.  And, you can see that they expect to resettle 450 refugees by September 30th (for FY 2016).

Then the most important section follows where they fill in the numbers from each area of the world they want to place in Milwaukee beginning in October for FY17.  “Tie capacity” means that there are some relatives or some others related in some way to those already there.


AF = Africa.  African ethnic groups we resettle are from: DR Congo, Somalia, Burundi, Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea and a few other lesser groups.

EA = East Asia. This group includes the large number of Burmese we have been admitting for years (and now including the Rohingya Muslims). Also, smaller numbers of Vietnamese, Chinese, Laotians and North Koreans are admitted from this region.

ECA = Europe and Central Asia.  Ukrainians and those living in the former Soviet Union like Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan fall in this group. Earlier we took tens of thousands from the Balkans.

LAC = Latin America and the Caribbean. One major country in this category is Colombia (don’t ask me why we favor Colombia!), and of course Cuba.  Think about it, we still take tens of thousands of Cubans!

NE/SA= Near East and South Asia.  This is the big category right now and includes: Afghanistan, Bhutan/Nepal, Iran, Iraq, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Syria.

In our sample Abstract, Catholic Charities of Milwaukee*** wants more of the following ethnic groups to add diversity to a struggling city.  Burmese, Chin, Karen and Rohingya are all religious minorities from Burma (Myanmar) where the Buddhist government wants to keep Burma for Buddhists only, so we see it as our job (America’s job) to take care of all their displaced people (even though the Karen and Rohingya are enemies of each other!).  But, of course the naive do-gooders think all of their differences will melt away when placed together in slums in Milwaukee.

Somalis, Iraqis, Sudanese, Congolese and Cuban round out their wish list.

And, wow, see they have 50 languages available locally from which to select expensive interpreters!

See that PRM (that stands for the State Department branch called ‘Population Refugees and Migration’) has monitored the agency and found them not completely compliant with their contract in one recent year.

Now, let’s have a look at another page:

Screenshot (4)


See the industries they will be placing their refugees with—Meatpacking is one! And, check out the wages. A family is not going to live on $8.75 an hour so of course the refugees will remain on welfare.

And notice that Catholic Charities is bragging that the government has great medical care available for refugees in Milwaukee.  Oh boy, that means you get to pay for their Obamacare!

Here is the third page of this abstract.  And, by the way, I feel sure this abstract is not complete.  If Reno was 16 pages this one has been shortened for some reason. What are they hiding?

Screenshot (5)


Have a look at this chart.  Here is what this is about.  The contractor/subcontractor is supposed to be putting up its share of money for this supposed PUBLIC/PRIVATE partnership.  So here they have to prove they have some skin in the game, that this isn’t being run completely out of the US taxpayers’ pockets (which it is, but here they try to pretend it isn’t).

What do you think the odds are that Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, which ponied-up a whopping $3,000 in cash from individuals in 2015, is actually going to find $100,000 from individuals in 2017?  Don’t make me laugh!

Then see the line ‘Volunteer hours/miles!’ They need to find volunteers because the volunteers time and miles are turned into cash (on paper) for the purpose of showing the feds in this phony system that they are doing their share to contribute to the resettlement of hundreds of poor people to Milwaukee.

And, don’t miss the line with the amount of money local and state government is handing out (and they keep telling us this is completely funded from the federal level).  Ha! Ha!

Then see the last line.  CC says it will contribute $540 per refugee in cash in FY2017, but only managed $242 in 2015. Optimistic aren’t they!

And, that doesn’t mean the cash necessarily goes to the refugee, but likely goes toward the agency’s overhead!

If you want a really good laugh, you should see the Abstract for the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) for FY17 for Milwaukee.  They are going to contribute a grand total of $53 in cash per refugee they resettle while in 2015 they shelled out a whole $24 per refugee (whoop-de-do).

Are you still with me????

So what do you do with your local R & P Abstract once you get it?

You must make the document public!

You are going to have to figure out how to do that where you live.  Go before your local government (when the media is there) and ask if your elected officials had any role in its preparation. Tell them to hold a public meeting to discuss it.

Make sure all those in your local group with similar concerns are given a copy.

If you are doing a power point presentation in your state, be sure to put the pages on the power point.

Take it to your Member of Congress and US Senators and tell them you disapprove of the numbers and that you don’t want them to vote to fund it.

Demand to know exactly which ethnic groups are coming to your town.  And, are they screened for communicable diseases?

I feel like I am beating a dead horse with this next one…..

If you can’t get to the media (those local papers have been captured!), you will have to write a blog or website so all of the information you gather is made public by your own alternative media.  Facebook pages are not as good because I don’t think you can catalog information for future reference.

It is pretty late in the cycle to make a huge impact this year with the Abstracts except to pressure Congress in to not funding Obama’s planned expansion of the program.

Next year? What do we do? Who knows…..It all depends on November!

*** Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee received almost $7 MILLION FROM US TAXPAYERS in the last 3 years.  See here.

Minnesota ‘sharia law’ billboard causing a stir

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 13, 2016

I suppose the question it asks could easily be answered in Minnesota!

That roving gang of Somali refugee youths in an upscale suburb of Minnesota two weeks ago told a homeowner that they could kidnap and rape her because Sharia law said they could.  Why aren’t we believing the believers?

“Do you know Shariah law?” one of the older men in robes yelled at Penskey.


“We can kidnap you and rape you!” the men shouted back at her.

Here is the billboad, see the story, here at Alpha News.


Minn billboard


It is a billboard contracted through the month of July by the Center for Security Policy.

I love these alternative ways of reaching people when the national media isn’t telling the public the truth!

Heck, have you seen any of these three recent stories on the national news—Idaho rape, Somali roving gangs, and now the Massachusetts Syrian alleged perv?

By the way, some people prefer spelling ‘sharia’ with an ‘h’ at the end, I don’t know if there is a correct spelling or whether you can spell it either way and be correct.

German couple among first victims of Merkel/Zuckerberg scheme to silence political speech

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 9, 2016

Invasion of Europe news…

We reported here previously that Mama Merkel and Facebook mogul Marky Zuckerberg have agreed that you dare not criticize Germany’s immigration policy on facebook or you can be dragged into court, like this husband and wife.

From Breitbart:

A German couple were taken to court and sentenced after they created a Facebook group that criticised migrants and the government’s mass migration policy.

zuckerberg and Merkel

Jawohl Frau Merkel, whatever you say!

The couple, who live in the German town of Vierkirchen, stood accused of inciting hatred toward migrants via the Facebook group that the pair had created called the “Anti-refugee movement” (AFB). The group is said, by the court, to have been a clear incitement against migrants and as a result both 27-year-old Peter M. and his 26-year-old wife Melanie M. were found guilty of hate speech, Merkur reports.

The statements on the Facebook group did not seem to contain anything overtly nationalistic or Nazi-inspired, but rather expressed deep concern about the situation in Germany relating to mass migration.

Continue reading here.

And, don’t miss this other Breitbart story about the migrant crisis causing German towns to go into deep debt.

Click here for all the news (for the last few years!) on the ‘Invasion of Europe.’

Thank God we are not Germany yet! (And, free speech is probably the only thing that will save us from that fate.)

Creeps me out! UN helps create The Hive (a modern day propaganda machine)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 8, 2016

Hive_PrimaryOneColor_redoIf you’ve wondered how so many warm and fluffy stories are popping up on the issue of refugees, you might look to The Hive as one reason for the latest flurry.

Truly I’m creeped-out when I read about the small group of social engineers hired by the United Nations, to create a narrative, to solve what they call the “most pressing issue” of our time—the “refugee crisis.”

Here (hat tip: Julia) is what they say about themselves (of course they don’t tell you what they really are—propagandists!):


So what is the Hive, and what does it do? It’s a team of 10 people working out of New York, exploring the universe of “persuadables” in the context of the refugee crisis. Reich and his colleagues are always asking, “Who can we get to engage around this issue that the UNHCR might not otherwise target? And how can we measure their behavior?” Its hiring practices are unorthodox, for the nonprofit world, at least. “We have the first full-time data scientist in a nonprofit in the U.S. focused on engagement,” says Reich.

And, here they describe one of their recent successes as they work for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (the agency choosing refugees for your towns!):

The Hive has a wide berth to experiment with things that an august body like the UNHCR might not typically try. It made a “Jesus Was a Refugee” bumper sticker, riffing on a line of the Pope’s, and distributed it around the time of his U.S. visit.

The average person just thinks a theme like that springs up from the ether.  Do a google search on ‘Jesus was a refugee’ and see how it is spread throughout social media.

Here is their facebook page: USA for UNHCR where they promote their memes such as the bumper sticker project they brag about.

And, here is what they say they are doing:

We’re building knowledge about issues relating to refugees so that Americans will grow more committed to solving the refugee crisis.

We’re using data science to identify and micro-target prospective supporters.

And we’re developing strategic partnership opportunities for corporations and brands that change everything we know about philanthropy and advocacy.

This is not about charity. We’re here to help the United States. We are here to help the United States solve problems that truly need the United States’ support.

We’re here to unlock the potential of the U.S. market – both in terms of fundraising and advocacy – in support of the most pressing issue of our time.

We can’t make change happen alone or over night – that is why we need you. We are bringing together the smartest and most innovative partners in the U.S. to help us reach, educate and engage American’s on today’s most pressing issue.


One of the most important weapons they have in their propaganda arsenal is STORYTELLING!

The political Left loves stories: warm stories, family stories, children stories, stories of hardship overcome, stories about success and stories about how ethnic groups are reaching out to help each other with love and kindness.  Blah, blah, blah!

But, we have stories too! (and we don’t have millions of dollars and Manhattan brains promoting them).  We have stories about their angels wandering off-message (thus destroying their carefully crafted narrative) and raping little girls (Idaho!), becoming Islamic terrorists (Kentucky) or terrorizing suburbs (Minnesota).

And, therein lies the danger to the UN and its Leftist social engineers of blogs like Refugee Resettlement Watch and other on-line media daily messing up their narrative! by pumping out the “stories” that ‘balance’ their warm and fuzzy multicultural dream theme with some cold hard reality!

Viva La Free Speech!

Twin Falls: First amendment experts’ responses to Idaho US Attorney were “swift and severe”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 28, 2016

The story is a long way from being dead especially after the Idaho US Attorney Wendy Olson issued a threatening press statement about the case that took weeks to see the light of day because (we can only assume) the details went against the narrative officials have been portraying about the joys of multiculturalism being forced on Twin Falls, Idaho by the US State Department and its contractor, the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants with hundreds of refugees being placed there in recent years.

Michele Bachmann

Former Rep. and Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann also weighed in suggesting that after being given their due process, deportation for refugees who commit crimes is in order. (Rarely happens)

Legal experts pulled no punches in excoriating Olson as reported by Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily who begins his latest report with a summary of what allegedly happened:

Reaction to threatening comments from President Obama’s U.S. attorney in Idaho following the release of two Muslim boys accused of sexually assaulting a 5-year-old girl have been swift and severe.

Wendy J. Olson, the U.S. attorney for Idaho, indicated in a statement Friday that Idahoans who spread “false or inflammatory information” about the alleged Muslim perpetrators may be subject to prosecution. The boys accused are ages 14, 10 and 7, and their families have been evicted from the Fawnbrook Apartments in Twin Falls, where the assault allegedly took place.

The two older boys are immigrants from Sudan and the youngest is from Iraq. They are believed to be refugees*** but the government has yet to say exactly how they entered the country, only that they have come “within the last two years.”

The Olson statement that is drawing fire from First Amendment advocates is as follows:

“The spread of false information or inflammatory or threatening statements about the perpetrators or the crime itself reduces public safety and may violate federal law.”

She made the comment after some websites published erroneous information that the girl was “gang raped” at “knifepoint” by “Syrian refugees.”

While the boys likely are Muslim refugees, they are not Syrian. No knife was found at the crime scene.

While the girl may indeed have been “raped” – as reports of one boy urinating inside her mouth have yet to be debunked – she was not “gang-raped.”

First amendment attorneys contacted by WND left nothing to the imagination in their sweeping condemnation of the Idaho U.S. attorney appointed by Obama in 2010.

I’m not going to tell you what the attorneys said because I want you to read it all!  They pulled no punches! Click here for the rest of the story.

We have been writing about Twin Falls since early 2015, click here for our archive.

*** For inquisitive reporters, there is one person who knows whether the alleged abusers from Sudan and Iraq are refugees resettled in Idaho or elsewhere (and who might have moved to Idaho) and that is Jan Reeves.  Reeves likely knows where the evicted families are now living as well.  Reeves is an Obama-designated “Champion of Change” and, as the state refugee coordinator, has been calling the shots on who goes to Idaho for 25 years.  (In Idaho, a Wilson-Fish state, the state government has no say in how the program is run, Reeves runs it.)

Legal expert: Idaho US Attorney comments threaten free speech rights

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 27, 2016

The Idaho controversy surrounding the alleged sexual assault (by three boys from Sudan and Iraq) of a 5 year old Twin Falls girl just keeps growing—now even to the Washington Post.

See this very informative column by Eugene Volokh*** who first gives the facts as we know them about the controversy, excerpts the written press statement by US Attorney Wendy Olson (see our post yesterday), and then says this (emphasis is mine). Hat tip: Paul

This, it seems to me, goes beyond calling for accuracy (and trying to deter threats, which are indeed criminally punishable). The prosecutor — a prosecutor backed by the might of the federal government — is not just condemning “threatening statements.” She is equally condemning “inflammatory” statements “about the perpetrators or the crime,” as well as “the spread of false information.”


Eugene Volokh, UCLA Law Professor

There is no First Amendment exception for “inflammatory” statements; and even false statements about matters of public concern, the Supreme Court has repeatedly held, are an inevitable part of free debate. While deliberate lies about particular people may lead to criminal punishment in some states that have carefully crafted “criminal libel” statutes, that would be under state law, not federal law; and though Idaho still has an old criminal libel law, it is almost never used, and is likely unconstitutionally drafted given modern First Amendment standards. Moreover, honest mistakes on matters of public concern are often constitutionally protected, especially against criminal punishment.

The federal prosecutor surely knows how to speak carefully and precisely about what very limited sorts of speech she can prosecute. Yet she chose to equally threaten federal prosecution not just for the punishable true threats — or for the deliberate lies that may be punished under state but not federal law — but also for an unspecified range of “inflammatory … statements about the perpetrators or the crime itself,” as well as for “the spread of false information” (with no limitation on the spread of deliberate lies).

It looks like an attempt to chill constitutionally protected speech through the threat of federal prosecution.

Please read the whole thing!

Dear Madam or Sir:
US Attorneys are subject to the discipline of the state bar where they practice.

The above lawyer stated in the attached release, “The spread of false information or inflammatory or threatening statements about the perpetrators or the crime itself reduces public safety and may violate federal law. We have seen time and again that the spread of falsehoods about refugees divides our communities.”

It is posted here:…enforcement-response

Investigate, and discipline this lawyer for violating your Rule, for using her office to intimidate dissenters from her political views.

Idaho: Obama appointed US Attorney attempts to stifle free speech relating to sex assault case

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 26, 2016

Update June 28th: More legal experts BLAST Olson, here.

Update June 27th:  Legal expert weighs in with why Olson is wrong, here.

And, she says “the spread of falsehoods about refugees divides our communities.”

Ms. Olson! the placement (in secrecy) of third world refugees in towns that do not want them divides communities!

Wendy Olson

Wendy Olson, US Attorney for Idaho, steps into sexual assault media controversy, fanning the flames even further!

See the latest in the ever growing and expanding controversy from Twin Falls, Idaho about the Sudanese and Iraqi boys who were charged with sexually assaulting a little girl in their apartment complex laundry room over three weeks ago.

We would not be talking about this now if vigilant Idaho citizens hadn’t demanded transparency and action from authorities there.

Frankly, if authorities had been forthcoming in the first place, the so-called rumors would not have gotten legs.

Here is Leo Hohmann with the latest news at World Net Daily (I am quoted in the story about Olson’s clear threat to infringe on the free speech rights of individuals and the media!):

The Obama-appointed U.S. attorney for Idaho has taken the highly unusual step of intervening in a local criminal case involving an alleged sexual assault by juvenile Muslim migrants and threatened the community and media with federal prosecution if they “spread false information or inflammatory statements about the perpetrators.”

WND and other news outlets have reported on the case involving three juvenile boys, two from Sudan and one from Iraq, who allegedly sexually assaulted a 5-year-old special-needs girl in the laundry room of the Fawnbrook Apartments in Twin Falls, Idaho.

Here is a small portion of what Eric Holder’s pick for Idaho US Attorney said in her press release of late last week.  This is a very clear attempt to silence anyone anywhere (not just in Twin Falls) who might speak critically about our refugee admissions policy.

“The spread of false information or inflammatory or threatening statements about the perpetrators or the crime itself reduces public safety and may violate federal law. We have seen time and again that the spread of falsehoods about refugees divides our communities. I urge all citizens and residents to allow Mr. Loebs and Chief Kingsbury and their teams to do their jobs.”

You must continue reading to learn about Olson’s pro-refugee, pro-Muslim bias on display in the run-up to the Idaho trial of an Uzbek refugee on terror charges just last year (he was found guilty btw).  She fretted in advance of the trial and held a meeting with refugee and Muslim advocates to be sure that they were ready for an anti-Muslim backlash in the state during the trial.

Why was it so important for everyone on the pro-refugee side to keep this story under wraps?

It is because the resettlement contractors, the businesses looking for cheap labor, the Leftists looking for more Democrat voters, invested small town elected officials, and naive do-gooders have spent years building an image of refugees as angelic people. Some may be wonderful, deserving immigrants, but some definitely are not!  Because they are so invested in the myth (in the story they have created), any case like this that exposes the lie must be hidden from public view.

How many more cases are out there like the one in the Twin Falls laundry room that have been kept sealed from public view, or dropped altogether through out America?  This makes you wonder doesn’t it!

BTW, her future as Idaho’s US Attorney depends on whether Hillary or Trump win in November.  Remember that!
