Corporate/globalist giants donating millions to defeat small voices like mine!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 22, 2017

Holy cow!  Look at this! Who knew we were making such headway in getting our messages out!

Fascinating isn’t it how times have changed and the Leftists and Wall Street are on the same side!

I told you here that the SPLC and ProPublica had teamed up to ‘out’ us, but look at this NBC story about the payola the SPLC and the ADL are getting from those giant global corporations.

And, folks, this is about one issue only (not hate speech! not Charlottesville!), but IMMIGRATION.

Immigration and its consequent demographic change is the biggest issue of our times (see Steyn).

Apple CEO Tim Cook trying to silence my speech. In this story he is helping the illegal migrants getting in to Europe. https://iwebguyblog.wordpress.com/2015/09/19/apple-pledges-more-aid-to-help-with-europes-migrant-crisis/

These globalists and big banks need the free flow of cheap migrant labor (and immigrant consumers) to be able to move freely across borders. (And the SPLC and ADL are actually aiding in supplying that slave labor!)

Thus they are silencing anyone explaining to the American public about why unfettered immigration is not good for America—economically and culturally.

This is about MONEY for the rich, straight up!

From NBC:

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — JPMorgan Chase is fighting back against hate groups by donating $1 million to nonprofits that expose extremists.

The nation’s largest bank announced on Monday that it is giving $1 million to be split equally by the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League.

The donations are part of an effort to address “deep divisions” in the U.S. following a violent white supremacist protest in Charlottesville, Virginia this month, the bank said.

Uber wealthy, like Fox’s James Murdoch, squashing voices they don’t like.

Last week, Apple CEO Tim Cook similarly announced plans to donate $1 million each to the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League.

21st Century Fox CEO James Murdoch, the son of Rupert Murdoch, also pledged $1 million to the ADL.

Continue reading here.

I know none of us have the money to fight back in a big way, but in your own small way, you can dump Apple, your JP Morgan bank acct/credit card and maybe it is time to give up Fox News (if you haven’t already).

P.S.  And, as we have said many times on these pages remember that both Tyson Foods and Chobani Yogurt are always on the lookout for more refugee laborers!

Alert to Mainers: Local community college prez wants Somalis to move to Aroostook County

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 22, 2017

….to work in agriculture.

Will they dig potatoes? Aren’t there machines to do that work?

And, why is this an issue for a community college? Govt. grants? More students? What?

From Mainebiz:

Northern Maine Community College and Maine Community Foundation are partnering to bring Somali immigrants to Aroostook County to explore agricultural opportunities.

Officials from the college and foundation were joined Saturday by 45 Somali immigrants, including children, from southern Maine on a tour of farm operations in Aroostook County held on Saturday.

NMCC Pres. Timothy Crowley

The purpose of the tour is to introduce the Somalis to smaller-scale agricultural prospects in the region.

This effort stems from ideas germinated at a March 2016 conference at the college in which local business and civic leaders spoke about being more proactive in the face of a continuing decline in Aroostook County’s work force.

One of my top posts of all time is about how Somalis got to Maine in the first place—Maine, the welfare magnet.

Syrians struggling with basic needs in Edmonton, Canada

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 22, 2017

In his zeal to show what a caring humanitarian he is, the boy prime minister of Canada literally airlifted tens of thousands of Syrians to Canada in the year after being elected.

His reckless impulse is now resulting in story after story about how the Syrians are not faring well.

From CBCNews (emphasis mine):

More than a year after arriving on Canadian soil, thousands of Syrian refugees are still struggling to make ends meet and provide for their families.

Alberta welcomed nearly over 5,100 refugees between Nov. 26, 2015 and March 2017, with 2,100 settling in Edmonton.

A report prepared by city staff and presented to the community and public services committee Monday shows the biggest challenges are in health, housing and employment.  [So what else is there besides those three biggies?—ed]

“It’s just the demand is so high,” Ricki Justice, with the Mennonite Centre for Newcomers, told the committee.

Justice said refugees dealing with complex trauma from the Syrian war are having a tough time accessing psychological services.

“Six-week wait times to see a counsellor,” she said.

Catholic Social Services, a group responsible for settling the government-assisted refugees in Alberta, has held a series of forums since the first refugees arrived last year. In May 2017, it compiled the information delivered in the report.

Lots of children per family—demography will be the death of Canada (after Europe):

The province came out with an affordable housing strategy earlier in the summer and Huque hopes some of it will address the need for larger units for bigger families.

“I don’t think it was expected the sizes of some of these families,” he said. “Six, seven, eight people are just not going to fit into a two- or three-bedroom unit.”

He said moving to a bigger place is beyond many refugees’ means. They end up relying on food banks and other charities.

ProPublica (recipient of Soros $) works with CAIR and SPLC to silence speech

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 21, 2017

……including mine apparently.

(By the way, see my post yesterday about how twitter is messing with accounts like mine.)

Last week Leo Hohmann writing at World Net Daily wrote an article about ProPublica coordinating with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Although frightening information in these dark days when free speech is under attack, I didn’t relate it to my decade-long research about the US Refugee Admissions Program.  Silly me!

First, here is what Hohmann said on Friday:

An investigative journalism center is passing off as fact a report by the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations that hate crimes against American mosques jumped sharply in 2015 and continue to occur at historically high rates — about once every three days.

ProPublica is a New York City-based nonprofit journalism center partially funded by billionaire George Soros that shares data-driven investigative stories with newspapers of all sizes and local TV stations across the United States.

See list of more than 100 U.S. newspapers, websites and TV stations that “partner” with the Soros-backed ProPublica.

But ProPublica‘s newest project on hate crimes is raising eyebrows because of its reliance on a questionable source for its data. The report says more than 370 “hate incidents” directed at U.S. mosques and Islamic centers have been catalogued by CAIR since April 2013.

“Most of the incidents are threats to worshippers’ lives or acts of vandalism,” according to the report, which depends solely on CAIR for its list of anti-Muslim hate crimes.

CAIR, which ProPublica refers to as simply “a civil rights group,” has been tied to the extremist Muslim Brotherhood and the terrorist organization Hamas.

[….]

ProPublica has received funding from the Soros’s Open Society Foundations, the Knight Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, Pew Charitable Trusts, Ford Foundation, the Carnegie Corp., Hewlett Foundation, Sandler Foundation and Atlantic Philanthropies.

Continue here.

ProPublica investigating me!

Imagine my surprise to see this morning that a reporter from ProPublica had written to me on Friday and gave me a 5 p.m. deadline to answer their questions.

Here is the entire e-mail from reporter Lauren Kirchner.  I know money matters greatly to these Leftists, but do they really think that I’ve devoted 10 years to researching and writing about how the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program needs to be reformed FOR MONEY.

Whatever they were writing has apparently been published, but I have no clue what they finally reported.

If you see it let me know.

 

Lauren Kirchner <Lauren.Kirchner@propublica.org>

to me

Hello Ms. Corcoran,

I am a reporter at ProPublica, a nonprofit investigative newsroom in New York. I am contacting you to let you know that we are including your website in a list of sites that have been designated as hate or extremist by the American Defamation League or the Southern Poverty Law Center. We have identified all the tech platforms that are supporting websites on the ADL and SPLC lists.

We would like to ask you a few questions:

1) Do you disagree with the designation of your website as hate or extremist? Why?

2) We identified one tech company on your website, PayPal. Can you confirm that you receive funds from your relationship with those them? How would the loss of those funds affect your operations, and how would you be able to replace them?

3) Have you been shut down by other tech companies for being an alleged hate or extremist web site? Which companies?

4) Many people opposed to sites like yours are currently pressuring tech companies to cease their relationships with them – what is your view of this campaign? Why?

Our deadline is 5pm EST today.

Thank you,

Lauren Kirchner

Here is my response to Ms. Kirchner (LOL! I am so offended!):

Dear Lauren,

I am a one person blogger. I have no funding. I get a few bucks here and there from grateful readers that goes to my pay pal account.

I have been voicing my research findings and my opinions for ten years as a charitable gift of my personal time (note that there is no advertising on my blog).

The SPLC is despicable. They are such liars!

Again, I have no group! It is just me in my basement doing research.

I check my e-mail infrequently so just seeing your e-mail this morning.

Do whatever you want, it will only solidify public opinion against the SPLC and your publication for silencing speech you don’t like.

Yours truly,

Ann Corcoran

Alas, no retirement for me!

They truly don’t understand that there are Americans who are fighting for an important cause and whenever in the future I’m tempted to retire from my lucrative blogging work, I’ll remind myself of this and keep on going if it kills me! 

More later, in the meantime, see me and my hate group here!

HIAS to hold rally for refugees on the Hill September 14th

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 19, 2017

HIAS is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, one of nine major federal refugee resettlement contractors*** working for the US State Department.

Their goal at the rally is to push for 75,000 refugees in the FY18 Presidential “determination” Trump will be submitting to Congress at about that time.  I don’t know what good a little rally will do, since I suspect the Trump Administration is close to choosing the CEILING number already.

Mark Hetfield, HIAS CEO, makes a cool $358,718 (doing well by doing good) and has been organizing against Trump from the beginning. HIAS led the pro-Muslim lawsuit against the so-called ‘travel ban.’ See my huge archive on HIAS by going here: https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/?s=HIAS

This time last year, groups, including HIAS, were pushing Obama to set a CEILING of 200,000, so they must be figuring the very best they can get to maintain their payments from you (the taxpayers), and not see their budgets go to hell, is 75,000. Anywhere from 50,000 to 75,000 would help them weather the Trump Admin.

(For perspective, know that 75,000 is at least 10,000 HIGHER than the average for the last ten years.)

FY18 determination should be zero!

Before I get to the details of the rally, know that I believe the only way the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) will ever be reformed is for Trump to come in with a determination of ZERO for FY18 and tell Congress to trash or reform the whole program.

Nothing will get Congress off their butts otherwise!

If Trump comes in with 50,000 (as rumored), nothing will ever change.

Here is what  HIAS is sending to its supporters (hat tip: Cathy):

Friends,

Just wanted to let you know HIAS is planning a rally on Sept. 14 in support of the U.S. welcoming more refugees.

Per the Facebook event:

Join HIAS for a timely public action by the U.S. Capitol (exact location to be announced), where we will:

· Urge our leaders to bring at least 75,000 refugees to the US next year
· Tell refugees’ personal stories and raise greater awareness of the global refugee crisis through interactive trivia

Honey sticks?

· Hand out honey sticks and encourage others to take action for refugees

More information: https://www.facebook.com/events/1516509395058729

When you go to that facebook page be sure to see the video about the Presidential Determination.  And, note that as of this writing, 10 people plan to attend.

What you should do….

Don’t go to their rally because it could be a set-up. I would not be surprised to find out that they staged someone with a Nazi sign for media consumption.

Instead organize small groups of citizens in the coming weeks to visit your local member of Congress office/US Senate offices (no matter how liberal your representative) and tell them what you think about the UN/USRAP.

If they refuse to meet with you, go to their local offices and stand outside with signs for a few hours. Get photos and put on social media.  (Send me a photo and I will put it on RRW!)

Why are they pressuring Congress? Because HIAS thinks it can persuade the Congressional leaders (RINO pro-business Republicans) to oppose Trump should he come in with anything less than their dream number—75,000.  And, they know it is Congress that can appropriate more money for the program than Trump requests!

*** For new readers, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society is one of the Federal contractors/middlemen/employment agencies/propagandists/lobbyists/community organizers? paid by you to place refugees in your towns and cities listed below.  Under the nine major contractors are hundreds of subcontractors.

The contractors income is largely dependent on taxpayer dollars based on the number of refugees admitted to the US, but they also receive myriad grants to service their “New Americans.”

If you are a good-hearted soul and think refugee resettlement is all about humanitarianism, think again! Big businesses/global corporations depend on the free flow of cheap (some call it slave) labor.

By the way, it was HIAS fear of RRW (me) telling the truth, that sent them to the SPLC which ultimately named me a hate “group.” Never mind that there is no group, just one blogger!  See here.

The only way for real reform of how the US admits refugees is to remove these contractors/Leftwing activists/big business head hunters from the process.

More on Kennewick sword-wielding Somali refugee killed by police

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 19, 2017

The Spokeman-Review wants you to know that Hussein Hassan was just a nut.  Which of course begs the question—do we screen incoming refugees for mental illness? The answer appears to be NO!

I probably wouldn’t bother posting this story meant to get you to ‘move along, nothing to see’ except for the fact that once again we see that Tyson Foods is a draw for refugee resettlement agencies to place their refugees as cheap laborers in meatpacking plants.

(See my previous post on the incident not reported by national media too busy with Charlottesville.)

We also learn here that it was the giant International Rescue Committee*** that placed Hussein Hassan with wife and EIGHT kids (taxpayers are responsible for!) in the proximity of Tyson Foods.

When Officer Jason Kiel found him on Olympia Street about 6:30 p.m., Hussein Hassan reportedly charged him, hitting him several times in the head. Officer Joshua Kuhn arrived next and both officers drew their guns and fired.

Downtown Kennewick, WA. Changing American towns whether you like it or not. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kennewick,_Washington By the way, I just searched for awhile trying to find a photo of Somali refugee Hassan and found none. Why no photo?

In the small community of Somali immigrants in the Tri-Cities, the father of eight was a well known, though a volatile, fixture, said Abdrahman Hassan, who owns a Kennewick grocery store.

“I think a lot of people in the Tri-Cities, they know this guy,” he told the Herald.

Abdrahman Hassan said he didn’t know how long Hassan had been in the U.S. but knew he brought his family to the Tri-Cities about five years ago after the International Rescue Committee Seattle helped move him to Tukwila in 2010.

Hussein Hassan spent a year in Pasco, before moving into a Sixth Avenue apartment in Kennewick.

He worked at Tyson Foods and then ConAgra before losing his job. He fell twice in a freezer tunnel at the Richland plant and hurt his back, according to documents he filed in a Benton County court.

His small claims court suit against his supervisor, claiming discrimination because he was Muslim, was ultimately dismissed. It’s unclear if he again found work.

Last October, his troubles worsened.

Someone called police because his wife reportedly was damaging a neighbor’s car.

Continue reading here to find out what happened when police came to his door.

Barcelona: “Clash of civilizations” says Polish interior minister

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 19, 2017

Invasion of Europe news….

From the New York Daily News yesterday:

Poland’s interior minister says “Europe should wake up” after the Barcelona attack and realize it’s dealing with a “clash of civilizations” that proves his government’s point that accepting migrants is a tragedy for Europe.

Mariusz Blaszczak says Friday his country is safe because “we do not have Muslim communities which are enclaves, which are a natural support base for Islamic terrorists.”

The ruling Law and Justice party has taken a strong anti-migrant stance, refusing to accept any refugees in a European Union resettlement plan, creating tensions with Brussels.

Blaszczak insisted late Thursday on state TVP that Warsaw will not succumb to EU pressure because it is putting Poland’s security needs first.

He said: “The refugee resettlement system is a system that is encouraging millions of people to come to Europe.”

The logic of his remarks is inescapable.

Northern Idaho: Don’t bring refugees here!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2017

A presentation in Bonner County on Wednesday ended earlier than planned because local opponents of refugee resettlement dominated the near capacity audience.

I suspect the citizens of Sandpoint and the surrounding rural region of Idaho had heard enough about refugee turmoil over 600 miles south in Twin Falls and didn’t see a need to bring the same trouble to their neighborhoods.

From the Bonner County Daily Bee:

SANDPOINT — A sustained lack of basic civility brought an abrupt end Wednesday to a presentation aimed at informing the public how refugee resettlement works in Idaho and the United States.

From the moment the meeting at Community Hall commenced, Nick and Laura Armstrong of Boise faced a tough room.

“I am advocating understanding,” Laura Armstrong tried to explain at one point.

A good portion of the capacity crowd, however, was having none of it.

Refugee resettlement foes groaned, scoffed, talked over, shouted and laughed derisively at the Armstrongs. When audience members who were genuinely curious about resettlement programs tried to get opponents to quiet down so the presentation could go on, they, too, were shouted down.

Nevertheless, the Armstrongs pressed ahead. They pointed out that the Bible is replete with people who were refugees, including Jesus. There are also cited repeated passages referring to God’s faithfulness and concern for “aliens” and “strangers.”  [The usual use of the Bible to suit their purposes!—ed]

Photo: Caroline Lobsinger

[….]

Many of the foes of refugee resettlement viewed the presentation as a foot in the door to bring displaced people into Bonner County.

“We don’t want ‘em!” a woman shouted angrily.

The Armstrongs and the meeting’s hosts — the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force and a group called “follow ~ a community” — emphasized that there was no plan to bring refugees here, but opponents were dubious of those declarations.

The Armstrongs and the meeting’s hosts attempted to conduct a question-and-answer session on resettlement after the presentation, but only made it several questions in when it became clear productive discussion remained elusive.

Continue reading here. And, don’t miss the comments.  Some are better than the story.

For background, new readers might want to see our Twin Falls archive by clicking here.

This post is also filed in a category I call Pockets of Resistance,’ a phrase I first heard in 2013 when an Office of Refugee Resettlement spokesman referred to communities where citizens were questioning refugee resettlement as ‘pockets of resistance,’ explained here.

Starbucks awarding grants to other coffee companies to train refugee baristas

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2017

Jobs Americans won’t do?

I guess we can conclude that there are no Americans, no low-skilled citizens, looking to brew up your morning coffee.

Here is an idea!  Get your own coffee maker and do your brewing at  home!

By the way, I had a huge number of readers, here and at twitter when I posted about Breitbart’s TB and Starbucks story here last week.

 

 

This story tells us that a successful effort to train refugee baristas will depend on whether a lot of refugees are being placed in your city and whether lots of people are patronizing coffee shops.

“Opportunity for All” grant? Sounds more like “Only refugees need apply” grant!

From The Daily Californian:

Berkeley’s 1951 Coffee Company has been awarded the “Opportunity for All” grant by the Starbucks Foundation, allowing it to expand its barista training program for refugees to other cities in the United States.

The antidote: Make your own coffee at home! (LOL! I’m not affiliated with or promoting any particular coffee machine manufacturer!)

The grant awards the coffee company $63,000 to serve an additional 85 refugees, asylees and Special Immigrant Visa holders, according to a press release issued Wednesday by the company.

1951 Coffee was one of 41 nonprofit organizations selected by the Starbucks Foundation because of its approach to helping refugees obtain the skills required to succeed in a “rapidly changing global economy,” the press release stated.

Doug Hewitt, co-founder of 1951 Coffee, said he and co-founder Rachel Taber were very pleased to learn that the nonprofit had been approved for the grant. According to Hewitt, the grant will allow the company’s two-week barista training program in Oakland — which takes place every other month — to increase its services to monthly.

Hewitt added that, in terms of expansion, 1951 Coffee is looking to first take its training program to San Diego. Depending on how that effort goes, the nonprofit will decide where else to take the program.

According to Hewitt, in order for a city to have potential for expansion, it must have a refugee population being resettled there, as well as a strong coffee industry.

Australia deal: Homeland Security returns to Manus Island to continue screening wannabe refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 17, 2017

Recently we reported that US security screening agents had been called home and took that as a sign that the US government was coming to its senses and that we were not going to honor Obama’s “dumb” deal with the Aussie government.

I guess my optimism was premature.  Here, at the PostCourier, we learn that US agents have gone back to screen the MEN.

Staff from the United States Department of Homeland Security have returned to Manus Island to interview refugees about resettlement in the US.

Prime Minister Turnbull is between a rock and a hard place as his leftwing No borders activists want the mostly Muslim men settled on the mainland. If he gives in, he signals to thousands of aliens waiting in nearby locations to jump into boats and sail to Australia.

Refugees in Australia’s offshore detention centre on the island have been told that interviews will resume this week.

Immigration authorities at the centre provided a notice to the men telling them only some will be interviewed.

“Don’t worry if you do not receive an appointment slip,” the notice said.

“Further visits are anticipated in the coming months.

“All cases are different and will move through the resettlement process at different speeds.”

There are almost 700 refugees on the island who are eligible for resettlement in the US, but the US Government still has not said if any of them will eventually be taken there.

Refugees inside the centre said a total of 70 men have been interviewed by Department of Homeland Security staff in their previous visits.

All of this is happening because Obama was mucking  around in Australia’s immigration policy!

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

Obama administration lobbied to change Australia’s asylum seeker policy

The Obama administration lobbied Australia to change its asylum seeker policy, actively disagreeing with the Australia’s off-shore detention and “Stop the Boats” mentality.

Former deputy secretary of state Heather Higginbottom has given an insight into how the secretive refugee-swap deal between the two allies came about, while revealing the United States, under former president Barack Obama, wanted to “bring relief” to asylum seekers held on Nauru and Manus Island. [Asylum seekers are NOT refugees!—-ed]

Heather goes to Washington! One of the great minds crafting a “dumb” deal! Obama didn’t like Australia’s ‘stop the boats’ deterrent to illegal aliens, so the deal was struck. But, Dear Donald, you don’t have to go through with it! Mostly Muslim men Australia doesn’t want shouldn’t be secretly placed in American towns! Here is Heather: https://www.rochester.edu/pr/Review/V71N3/feature2.html

The deal was the subject of a tense first phone call between President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, with Mr Trump labelling it “stupid”, “rotten”, “horrible” and “disgusting”.

But Ms Higginbottom, writing for Time magazine, said it was struck with humanitarian solutions in mind, by an administration uncomfortable with Australia’s stance.

“While the last administration strongly pressed the Australian government to change its policy toward asylum seekers, we also sought to immediately relieve the suffering of these refugees and agreed to resettle up to 1200 after they went through the US government’s rigorous refugee screening processes,” Ms Higginbottom, who now serves as the chief operating officer of CARE, wrote.

[Most have not even been determined to be legitimate refugees yet—ed]

Much, much more here.
