Merkel has gone mad!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 30, 2015

Invasion of Europe news….

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has announced that any Syrian who gets to Germany can apply for asylum there.  Of course this is going to be great news for Italy and Greece in particular which are now bearing the greatest burden in the invasion by mostly Middle Easterners and Africans.

Gee, Germany might someday be called the New Syria!

Angela Merkel Austerity Europe Germany

Angela Merkel invites all Syrians to come on in!

This brief article at Time magazine reminds us that the present EU rule on asylum is that those who claim to be persecuted must apply for asylum in the first country they reach on the continent.  They are not permitted to “asylum shop” for a better country, but of course they already are and that is what the pile-up is at Calais.   Those migrants don’t want to apply to stay in France they want to get to the UK where they see they have better prospects for social services.

Merkel is reportedly getting love letters from Syrians.  I fear that Obama will get jealous and want some for himself, love that is.  So watch for it—-65,000 Syrians by the end of his term in office?  See Obama praising Merkel, here.

Here is Time:

The new rule comes as Germany is witnessing a surge in attacks on refugee shelters.

In a move that will affect tens of thousands, Germany will now allow Syrian refugees to stay and apply for asylum instead of deporting them back to their country of arrival.

The Washington Post reports the country has decided to suspend a European Union rule, called the the Dublin Regulation, which says refugees are supposed to stay in the first European country of arrival until their asylum claims are processed. This rule places an unequal burden on Southern European countries like Greece and Italy, which are amongst the easiest to reach by boat from across the Mediterranean. Both Italy and Greece have faced unprecedented levels of migrant inflow this past year.

Under the new policy, even if the refugees first arrive in Greece or Italy but travel northwards to Germany, they will not be deported back to their first country of contact.

Can you hear the sound of marching feet toward the German border?  Italy and Greece will likely soon be sending busloads northward!

Obama praises Merkel on Germany’s ‘welcome’ to Syrians….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 29, 2015

…..and in so doing casts the US (not Obama, but the Republicans!) as mean-spirited, unwelcoming obstructionists.

obama_merkel-kiss

Yuk!

It is fascinating to me that once again Obama is not the target of the criticism.  When the George W. Bush Administration was wisely not moving quickly enough (security concerns!) for the humanitarian industrial complex agitators pushing to resettle Iraqi refugees, it was all about that bad George Bush.

Now that it is Obama’s own Dept. of Homeland Security which says it can’t properly screen Syrians, it isn’t Obama’s fault, it’s the Republicans in Congress that are the meanies.

I hate to say it, but Obama has the legal authority to immediately open the flood gates and Congress can’t do much about it (nor do I think the Republican leadership has the will to do anything).

Invasion of Europe news…….

Here is Deutsche Welle on Obama’s praise for German Chancellor Angela Merkel:

Barack Obama publicly lauded German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s European leadership role in the Syrian refugee crisis. But the US president’s praise also draws attention to his own country’s meager record on the issue.

It does not happen every day that the White House puts out a statement explicitly praising a foreign leader for his or her actions on a certain issue. By doing so and by singling out Berlin’s decision to suspend the so called Dublin rules to allow more Syrian refugees to come to Germany, President Obama was providing crucial support for the chancellor, who has faced criticism at home for being too slow to act.

“I think the US is trying to put their political weight behind that leadership that she is showing,” said Elizabeth Collett, director of the Migration Policy Institute Europe.

Obama’s presidential praise came on Wednesday. Hours earlier, Chancellor Merkel was booed by far-right protesters during a visit to a refugee center in a German town at the center of a recent wave of anti-foreigner violence.

Is Obama starting a conversation back home?

Despite all those efforts and notwithstanding the political and security obstacles Obama is facing, said Betts, the administration’s reaction to the Syrian refugee crisis could have been much stronger than it has been. And in that way, he added, Obama’s remarks regarding Merkel were perhaps also intended as a conversation starter back home.

“Conferring praise on Germany is making a domestic political statement on the need for the US to do more.”

Much more here.

Get ready!

I think Obama will do something dramatic in his last year in the White House.  Will it be to open the flood gates to 65,000 Syrians?  In order to head this off, the subject of Syrian resettlement to the US must become a topic of conversation in the 2016 Presidential election contest—before Obama moves on it!  For those of you in early primary states being treated to many visits from candidates, please bring up the issue of refugee resettlement!

State Department: 8,000 Syrians to arrive in US in FY2016

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 21, 2015

That is according to Breitbart (hat tip: Rosemary).   It is a huge number, but I think they will go for even greater numbers since their contractor friends and 14 US Senators are recommending 65,000!

Turkey Syrian camp

Many of the thousands of Syrian refugees that the US will resettle will come from Turkey.

Here is Breitbart:

The State Department is anticipating that the U.S. will admit up to 8,000 Syrian refugees in Fiscal Year 2016.

In written responses to the Senate Judiciary Immigration and the National Interest Subcommittee Republicans obtained by Breitbart News, the State Department reveals that it is expecting the U.S. will accelerate its acceptance of Syrian refugees next year.

“As of July 30, the United States has admitted 1,042 Syrian refugees in FY 2015 and anticipates admitting a total of 1,500-1,800 Syrians this fiscal year. We anticipate admitting 5,000-8,000 Syrian refugees in FY 2016,” the State Department wrote.

The Obama administration’s effort to resettle thousands of Syrian refugees into the U.S. has come under fire as a potential national security risk.

Here is David Miliband, CEO of US resettlement contractor the International Rescue Committee, pushing for 65,000 (mostly Muslim) Syrians to be sent to your towns and cities before Obama leaves office.

Cuban “refugee” numbers ticked up dramatically when Obama announced normalization of relations with Cuba

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 17, 2015

Once Obama announced that we were going to be on good terms with Communist Cuba, I wondered what it would mean for the tens of thousands of so-called Cuban refugees we have been taking in over recent years.

I would think the whole Cuban resettlement would come to a grinding halt since love was in the air between our country and theirs.

Generated by IJG JPEG Library

Sec. of State John Kerry in Cuba last week. We are now pals with the Cuban government. So this should mean that no more ‘refugees’ need to come to the US from Cuba! Right!

Apparently Cubans wanting out saw the writing-on-the-wall and expedited their travel to America.

Here, according to Breitbart (hat tip: Joanne):

The United States is experiencing a massive surge in the number of Cuban refugees risking their lives to reach American shores, following President Obama’s announcement that the White House would legitimize the communist Castro regime by reestablishing diplomatic relations.

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol is reporting that 23,978 Cuban refugees arrived in the United States between October 2014 and May 2015, with another 3,564 Cubans attempting and failing to reach U.S. shores. Most of those arriving successfully crossed the southern border with Mexico or crossed the straits of the Caribbean separating Florida from Cuba. The number of Cubans arriving in the past eight months is significantly larger than the number that reached the United States throughout all of the 2014 fiscal year: 22,162.

In January, officials reported experiencing a major spike in Cuban refugee migration between December 2014 and January 2015, in the immediate aftermath of President Obama’s announcement of normalization of relations with the Cuban regime. Coastal officials recorded a 60% increase in the number of Cubans traveling to the United States in the last trimester of 2014, but a 117% increase in migration when comparing December 2013 and December 2014.

Read it all.

I know from past research that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops is paid (by you) to help the Cubans resettle, but I think others of the nine contractors get a cut of the federal dole to help bring Cubans to your towns.

Dick Morris: US drowning in refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 16, 2015

Dick Morris is on the case:   Soon all the immigrants coming to America will be called refugees!

A couple of thoughts on political commentator Dick Morris (well known for his earlier friendship with the Clintons) who has a presentation on the Refugee Admissions Program of the UN/US State Department.  (hat tip: Peter)  It is pretty good.  I think he is on target when he says the Obama Administration (and its No Borders cabal) is purposefully calling anyone who gets here for any economic reason (the Unaccompanied alien children for instance) “refugees” because the word triggers an emotional response from those who know nothing.

I was going to point out that Morris’ numbers are bit high, but then if you do include (in addition to the annual 70,000 refugees themselves), the UACs, the asylum seekers, the Special Immigrant Visa holders, the Cuban/Haitian parolees and so forth, the half a million for Obama’s term in office is actually low.  But, don’t ever forget that George W. Bush brought in nearly the same number!  This program is 35 years old this year!

Morris says that Congress has no role, but they do!  They just don’t exercise it.  

When the President sends up his annual “determination” in late September*** for consultation, Senators and Members of Congress could say “NO” to what the President is proposing.  We don’t know what would happen then because saying NO, as far as we know, has never been tested.  I doubt anyone, but some lowly staff person, ever looks at the presentation from the White House/US State Dept. 

Indeed, it is now shameful that with all the concern about the program around the country, that Rep. Trey Gowdy, who is responsible as chairman of the immigration subcommittee in the House for the refugee program, has apparently not made one move to hold oversight hearings of any sort!

The Babin bill, which Morris mentions, would be a good reason to hold a hearing!

 

Watch here:

 

 

Go here for more on the video and on how to contact Morris.

*** Here is the FY2015 Determination letter.   It is accompanied by a very large, very useful, report to Congress.  Although the new fiscal year (2016) begins on October 1, 2015, don’t expect the determination to be sent much before Sept. 30th, so there is virtually no time for Congress to seriously look at it before the State Department is sending thousands out to colonize your towns.

This is a warning I posted recently.  I have no inside information.  I could be wrong, but, just in case, better to be ready and start talking about it now!

Warning!

By the way, on this Presidential determination letter, the Obama Administration is working on that right now for FY2016. They will send it to Congress around Sept. 30th since FY2016 begins on October 1.   I am very concerned that instead of the usual 70,000 refugees the Obama Administration has been bringing in each year, that they will dramatically increase the number for 2016 to accommodate the 65,000 (mostly Muslim) Syrians that the United Nations wants us to take. The reason I suspect a rat is that it has been very very quiet ever since the Jihad Caucus wrote to Obama.   I’m guessing Obama/Kerry told them to hush-up for now because something is in the works!  

Watch for it!

Serbia gearing up for massive new wave of migrants escaping ISIS

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 14, 2015

Invasion of Europe news….

There have been several stories lately suggesting that the Obama Administration perhaps purposefully allowed ISIS to grow and metastasize in Syria and into Iraq.  We talk about the desire by anyone concerned about ISIS to want to stop their brutality. Worse, in the long run though, is the need to stop them from destroying Europe, which they are doing not by acts of terror, but by sending millions of needy people fleeing westward.  I guess what I am saying is maybe Obama is quietly cheering the invasion of Europe.

serbia_on_map

Here is some news from Serbia as it braces for the next onslaught. Most won’t stay in Serbia but will move westward to France and Germany and other more prosperous countries of the EU.

From Pravoslavie.ru:

Serbia can expect another wave of refugees at the beginning of autumn—one which will be much larger than the current 1,000 Syrian refugees who enter every day, writes the Serbian daily “Blic,” citing information obtained from Serbian security services.

The second wave is expected to bring the poorest residents of Arab countries where the war with ISIS (ISIL/Islamic State) rages.

According to estimations of Serbian officials about three million new immigrants are on the Turkish border waiting to enter the EU through Greece, Macedonia and Serbia.

“The new wave of immigrants could pose the most risk to the safety and public health of Serbian residents. These immigrants who will arrive in Serbia come from the lowest social structures of their countries. That is why measures for greater control of their movement are being already planned,” says the latest information of Serbian security services that monitor the movement of asylum seekers, writes the daily.

Fargo, ND (and everywhere else) to be slammed with new refugees in next seven weeks

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 7, 2015

Why the next seven weeks?   Because fiscal year 2015 ends on September 30th and the settlers in the US State Department and in their contracting agencies want to hit the Obama target of 70,000 for the year and they have (as of July 31), 18,470 more to go!

Actually that 70,000 figure that Obama announced in his Presidential Determination Letter to Congress last September is meant to be a ceiling, not a goal that they necessarily have to hit.   However, since the contractors are paid by the head and they have salaries and office overhead to pay, they always try to shoot for the highest number they can haul in as possible.

Jessica Thomason

“Jessica Thomasson, the CEO of Lutheran Social Services, says the projections the next couple months are 10 to 20 percent higher than usual in North Dakota. The whole year is about 10 percent higher.”

Here is the news from WDAY-6 News (hat tip: Deb).  You will see that the school system is sweating it!  I know from my own experience that the local health department will also have to work overtime to get all the kids ready for school — our poor kids and the new poor kids coming in!

Anyone out there forming a ‘Pocket of Resistance’ in North Dakota? I’m guessing that ND is getting more than usual because there is no resistance to colonization there while some other locations are seeing citizen pushback.

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) – Local aid organizations and schools say they’re going to be very busy the next couple of months. More refugees than usual are expected to be coming.

As of July, 215 refugees had been resettled in Fargo-West Fargo and Jamestown, 21 in Moorhead and 64 in Grand Forks.

By September 30th, Fargo and West Fargo could increase to 350 new residents and the number in Grand Forks could be bumped to 100.

Jessica Thomasson/CEO, Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota, “In an ideal world, it would be spread evenly over the 12 months of that year, but we know that in a lot of years you’ll have ups and downs.”

Jessica Thomasson, the CEO of Lutheran Social Services, says the projections the next couple months are 10 to 20 percent higher than usual in North Dakota. The whole year is about 10 percent higher. She says their organization usually gets about two weeks notice of new arrivals during which they have to set up housing, furnishing and other things to prepare for a new life in a new place.

[….]

Overall, the U.S. plans to resettle 7,500 refugees this month and over 10,000 in September to meet it’s commitment of 70,000 for this fiscal year. Most of the arrivals here in metro will be Bhutanese, Somali, Iraqi and Congolese. About 75 percent have family connections here.

By the way, this last bit is what I was telling you about when I wrote about Lancaster, PA the other day.  Once you have been targeted as a resettlement site and the refugees are coming, there is no stopping the importation of the family members!

How many have you gotten in your state so far this fiscal year?  Go here and check out data on arrival by nationality and state.  As of July 31, they are at 51,530 for the year so far.

See all of our previous posts on problems with refugees in North Dakota by clicking here.   They were supposed to get Syrians this year, wonder what happened to them?

Mideast archbishops ask why US is discriminating against Syrian Christians

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 7, 2015

They have noticed the disparity in the numbers too (see our post last evening).

They need to be sending some of this anger toward the US Conference of Catholic Bishops who have been silent while resettling mostly Muslims from the Middle East as US State Department refugee contractors.

From Christian Today:

Catholic archbishops from Iraq and Syria are speaking out in defence of displaced Christians who are having a difficult time in applying for US visas to enable them to escape persecution in their own country and settle in a new land, such as the US, where they can freely practice their faith.

Chaldean Archbishop Bashar Warda of Erbil, Iraq, and Melkite Archbishop Jean-Clément Jeanbart of Aleppo, Syria, spoke recently at the Knights of Columbus 2015 Convention press conference in Philadelphia, describing the plight of Christians in the Middle East, according to the Catholic News Agency.

They said they found out from official US government sources that since October last year, 906 Muslim refugees from Syria have been granted US visas. However, out of the 700,000 displaced Christians from Syria who applied for a US visa during the same period, only 28 succeeded in getting one.

Might not have come to the attention of the White House? Yeh, sure.

The archbishops said the apparent discrimination against Christians in the granting of US visas might not have reached the attention yet of the White House, but they said this is clearly a case of injustice.

“Our people are asking these questions: How come we apply for the American visa and are denied?” Archbishop Warda said. “This is a clear case of persecution. They’re being denied visas while others who have participated (in the violence) or at least were silent can go.”

See the related story here at WND about Chaldeans held in a detention center in California while others who came seeking asylum have been let go.

Obama could use supposedly temporary ‘humanitarian’ parole to get more Syrians admitted to US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 6, 2015

I expect this dreadful news is because the UN/US State Department (and the resettlement contractors) are hopping mad at the slow screening process for those who have been submitted for consideration as permanent refugees.  I see parole as a way around serious security screening.

By the way, the percentage of Syrians entering as refugees (so far) still stands at about 94% Muslim for those being placed all over the country.  We are not saving the Christians in any big way!

Senator Dianne Feinstein

As a leading member of the Jihad Caucus, Senator Dianne Feinstein is happy to bring California more immigrants—Syrian Muslims this time!

Here is the latest news about possible parole for Syrians, from Breitbart (hat tip: Rosemary):

The Obama administration says it may reconsider the use of parole for certain Syrian nationals in addition to its Syrian refugee resettlement effort.

In written responses to Senate Judiciary Immigration and the National Interest Subcommittee Republicans obtained by Breitbart News, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services reveal that the U.S.’s effort to resettle thousands of Syrian refugees might not be the only process it will use to bring displaced Syrians to the U.S.

“At the request of more than 70 members of Congress in 2013, USCIS considered whether to establish a parole program for Syrians in Syria but decided that establishing such a program was not warranted. However, as the situation continues to evolve and USCIS continues to engage with stakeholders, USCIS may reconsider the use of parole for certain Syrian nationals,” USCIS wrote in its response to the subcommittee’s question probing whether USCIS is considering a parole program for Syrians.

The State Department has estimated that by the end of FY 2015 the U.S. will have admitted between 1,000-2,000 Syrian refugees. Parole for Syrians, if used, would supplement the refugee resettlement effort.

Parole is an immigration benefit that is intended to be imparted on a case-by-case basis for “urgent humanitarian reasons” or “significant public benefit” for those foreigners who would otherwise be ineligible for entry. It is intended to be a temporary admission, and parolees are expected to depart the U.S. once the reasons for their parole have ended.

More here….

Remember readers that the contractors started out pushing for 12,000-15,000 for this year, and now they and the Jihad Caucus in the Senate would like to see 65,000 as Obama’s parting gift to America.

So where are we?

Fiscal year 2015 ends in just short of 8 weeks (on September 30th) and in the calendar year of 2015 we have admitted 878.  Since the first of January 2012 (the year I arbitrarily chose as the beginning of the present Syrian conflict) we have admitted 1,213 Syrian refugees.   (See Refugee Processing Center data base, here)

Of those, 1,138 practice some form of Islam giving Muslims a 94% share of the total Syrians admitted so far.  I don’t expect that percentage to change much as long as we are taking the refugees chosen for us from UN camps.

Here are the top ten states receiving mostly Muslim Syrians so far as of August 1, 2015 (go here for our previous accounting). Red number is the number resettled as of the beginning of July.

Texas (146)    (137)

California (139)    (133)

Illinois (106)   (93)

Michigan (81)   (59)

Arizona (79)    (73)

Florida (70)    (60)

Pennsylvania (65)   (65)

New Jersey (58)   (39)

Massachusetts (47)   (44)

Tied for tenth place:

Kentucky (42)   (not recorded because not in the top ten in July)

North Carolina (42)   (42)

Go here to see the 14 Senators that comprise the Jihad Caucus pushing Obama to admit more Syrians.

I really think it would be only fair if all the Syrians were sent to the home states of the fourteen, don’t you?

However, ten of the 14 are not even getting Syrians in any large numbers, but four are getting their wish and their states are in the top ten:

Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)  Yippee I’m getting Syrian Muslims!

Dick Durban (D-IL) The leader of the pack is getting his share! Dropping them in Chicago because diversity will bring strength to that city!

Ed Markey (D-MA) I wonder how many will go to Markey’s home town.

Robert Menendez (D-NJ) The guy worried about the Iranians will have some Syrian Muslims in his home state.

Rainbow Nation news from PBS: Black South Africans continue persecution of other black Africans

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 6, 2015

Well at least someone in the US media is talking about it!  South Africa the highly touted welcoming “Rainbow Nation” is once again seeing serious violence erupt as South African citizens (the black ones!) are trying to push out the migrants (the black ones!) coming in from troubled nations across the continent.

The media must label it ‘xenophobia’ because the word ‘racism’ does not apply.  And, besides everyone knows that blacks cannot be racist, right!

obama-danish

Barack and Michelle Obama mourning the man who is responsible for the South Africa we see today. At Nelson Mandela’s funeral in 2013. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/national_world/2013/12/11/selfie-gate-michelle-obama-upset-at-husbands-behavior.html

Here is the story at the PBS Newshour. Check it out for yourself.  See the “xenophobic” violence. It isn’t just me pointing it out (although my language is a bit clearer!).

Can you blame the foreigners who heard about all the rights anyone in South Africa is entitled to under the Constitution that Nelson Mandela’s political party said were theirs—the right to a home, food, health care, education, work, blah, blah, blah.

In fact, remember that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg famously said she liked the South African Constitution better than ours!

The migrants came for what they heard South Africa had promised!

Ask yourself, is South Africa better off today governed by the communists of the African National Congress?

The ANC`s key objective is the creation of a united, non-racial, non-sexist and democratic society.

This means the liberation of Africans in particular and black people in general from political and economic bondage. It means uplifting the quality of life of all South Africans, especially the poor.

So to American readers!

If you think South Africa’s problems are not yours, think again.   So far this year we have taken 621 REFUGEES from South Africa which is supposed to be a safe nation offering asylum to those who get there.  I’m guessing that a large number will be Somalis and that not one is white.

We have followed the violence in the mythical “Rainbow Nation” for years, see our complete archive here.
