Twin Falls, Idaho: Is Prosecutor attempting to downplay rape story?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2016

Why would he do that? Because the whole narrative that keeps refugees flowing to cities and towns to supply cheap labor for multi-national corporations under the guise of humanitarianism could come crashing down. 

grant Loebs

Prosecutor Grant Loebs

That, carefully crafted, decades old narrative, is this: refugees are good people, downtrodden souls, escaping war and poverty, and it is US tradition (indeed our role in the world!) to care for those in need and so we must welcome refugees from around the globe who only want a better life for their little children (even if they come from cultures that do not share our traditions, values and laws).

Therefore, news about refugee children raping and sexually assaulting American children simply must be covered-up.  There is too much money involved to let this story grow!

Here is the latest from Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily who interviewed the rape victim’s tenacious new attorney.  I’ll let you read it yourself.

If you are a new reader, this is a good summary of where the case is today.  Here, in a nutshell, is what is going on:

“He’s [prosecutor Grant Loebs] taken a bizarre route and tried to manipulate this narrative into something that he wants, that covers everything up, but he’s not going to succeed. I’m going to lay out why he’s violating the rules of professional conduct and his own oath to represent the victim zealously, regardless of personal cost. He just wants to protect the refugee community so they can work at Chobani and so College of Southern Idaho can continue to get the refugee money.”

Our complete Twin Falls archive is here.  It extends back to early 2015 when we reported on the new (expanding) mosque there.

Polls: Most Americans do not want Obama to bring in Syrians and distribute them around the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2016

Donald Trump must continue to hammer this issue—the American people do not want to pay for, or worry about their security as the Obama Administration is nearly its goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian Muslims to the US by September 30th.

And, for those of you who think that will be it, it won’t be as Obama and Hillary are gearing up to make 2017 an even bigger year for bringing the third world to your town.

Before I give you this latest poll news, I need to make sure you all understand something that even I wasn’t fully wrapping my mind around.  Although we write frequently about the 190 or so US resettlement offices (see list here), refugee placement is not restricted to the town where the contractor’s office is located, but in fact refugees are distributed in 100 mile radius circles around those offices and thus I will bet Syrians and other refugees (Somalis, Burmese Rohingya, Iraqis etc.) have been settled in thousands of American small towns over the years.

map Syrians this fiscal year

I just checked the US State Department data base (Refugee Processing Center) and see that 184 cities and towns (map: 38 states) have received Syrians in the last 11 months.

Here is the polling information from the World Tribune:

Americans are overwhelmingly against accepting a wave of Syrian refugees into the country, a new poll found.

Just 36 percent of U.S. voters support allowing the refugees to enter, according to a Chicago Council on Global Affairs poll released on Aug. 15.

The Obama administration is close to reaching its goal of allowing 10,000 Syrian refugees into the U.S. by the end of September.

Anne Richard, assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, said earlier this month that 8,000 Syrians have already been re-settled.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has pledged to increase the number of Syrian refugees coming to the U.S.

Hillary Clinton: U.S. should take 65,000 Syrian refugees

The media has been mum about it, but a wise Trump campaign should find Hillary’s declaration last fall on Face the Nation and play it over and over again!

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Sunday that the United States should accept 65,000 refugees from Syria to help alleviate the humanitarian crisis created by the war there.

Here is my post on what she said.  She was following the lead of the United Nations and the Senate Jihad Caucus (pushed by the resettlement contractors!) which called for 65,000 before Obama leaves  office.  See my June 2015 explanation (below) about where Hillary got the number 65,000! By the way, look for Obama’s even larger number at the UN pow wow in September.

My message is more urgent today than it was in June 2015!

Welcoming refugees? Will lawyers descend on your school system next?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 17, 2016

Update August 19: “Not the school I deserve,” said refugee. Here.

This is a lesson for every town contemplating becoming a “welcoming” refugee resettlement site. 

Are you listening Rutland, VT, Aberdeen, SD, Reno, NV, Missoula, MT, Charleston, WV and Fayetteville, Arkansas?

This news comes to us from “welcoming” Lancaster, PA (btw, it is in Lancaster that I first heard citizens, who asked questions about refugee impact, described as being in “pockets of resistance!”)

Lancaster logo

“Enriching us all” or is it bankrupting us all?

Apparently the Lancaster school system sought to deal with older, non-English speaking, refugees by placing them in an alternative school system, but lawyers for the ACLU and others will have none of it.  So now the school district there will be in court all week defending their decision at taxpayer expense.

And, so much for your American kids getting a good education!

From Newsworks:

As many as 700 refugees are resettled each year in Lancaster, a high number for the city’s population.  [This will happen to your town! Once they get a foothold the original 50 or 100 become 200, 500, 700 in one year!—ed]

Four of them are spending today in court, where they’ll testify in a lawsuit against the School District of Lancaster.

The suit alleges the district’s breaking the law by refusing to admit older teen refugees or automatically diverting them to an accelerated credit program. There, the case claims, they get an education inferior to what’s available at the local public high school (particularly when it comes to English language instruction.)

But attorney Sharon O’Donnell, who’s representing the school, says “the bottom line is whether the court can tell the [Lancaster] school board where to place students.”

Pennsylvania school code says residents between 6 and 21 years old are entitled to a free public education. At least one international treaty, the U.N.’s 1951 Refugee Convention, requires refugees to get the same public education as residents of countries where they’re resettled. [So we are being told that a UN treaty could govern our local school board decisions!—ed]

The lawsuit also alleges civil rights and federal Equal Educational Opportunities Act violations by the school, which O’Donnell refuted in recent court filings.

[….]

The lawsuit in Pennsylvania is similar to others filed in Florida and settled in New York this spring, and comes as refugee resettlement is expected to continue to rise.

[….]

The lawsuit’s being brought by a total of six student refugees, represented by a team of lawyers. Aside from Rothschild, they’re from the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia-based Education Law Center.

This is all the more reason to tell your Congressmen and Senators NO! when Obama wants more tax dollars next month.

Twin Falls, Idaho refugee contractor needs volunteers (they have a cash value!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 15, 2016

It is just a brief mention in an otherwise unremarkable news bit from a TV news station in Twin Falls, Idaho.  This is what I want you to see at KTBV.com (donations pour in, but not volunteers):

twin-falls-mormon-temple83

Twin Falls Mormon Temple: leaders there calling for volunteers to help Muslims resettle.

Volunteer Coordinator Jenny Reese says much of the recent donations have come from members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, after the church made a call to action.

Reese says more than books and bikes, the program still needs local volunteers to befriend the refugees who have lost their homes and cultures.

Here are some simple truths about the volunteer situation for most refugee resettlement contractors.

First, they have a very hard time retaining volunteers and the biggest reason I’ve heard for that is that many refugees (especially Muslims) do not show any appreciation for volunteers who drive them to appointments or otherwise help them. I have heard time and again about how rudely refugees treat good-hearted Christians who attempt to befriend them.

And, secondly, you need to know that the contractors (in this case the College of Southern Idaho) are desperate for volunteers because they log the volunteer hours and the federal government places a monetary value on the volunteer’s time which becomes the contractor’s ‘contribution’ in the supposed public-private partnership with the federal government. Oh, and those books and bikes also get a monetary value placed on them and count as a contribution from the contractor.

I think some volunteers catch on to this as they donate their time and their gas money to drive (often ungrateful) refugees around. So, the volunteer turnover is pretty high (or so I am told).

Indeed the shortage of volunteers is ample evidence that this program would crash and burn if it wasn’t so heavily funded by taxpayer dollars.

P.S. If you are considering volunteering be sure to get a briefing on the communicable diseases coming to the US with the refugees so as best protect your family.

Aberdeen, SD citizens hear from expert on refugee program, ‘news’ story shows bias

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 13, 2016

I’m sorry to say I don’t have time to give you all the background of what happened this week in Aberdeen, SD (a city I visited on my travels) as I dash out to my last stop of my 4 week (12 state so far) tour of American cities and towns troubled with a refugee program that is largely aimed at supplying cheap LEGAL immigrant labor to large manufacturing companies and that includes the new (re-opening) meat packing plant in Aberdeen.

Corey Heidelberger

Blogger, progressive activist and candidate for the SD Senate, Corey Heidelberger appears to be working on behalf of the South Dakota meat packing industry as he confronted Branstner. I have a hard time understanding why liberals work with the large multi-national corporations pushing migrant labor on America. Bio here: http://coryheidelberger.com/bio/

See my previous post on Aberdeen by clicking here.

A new ‘pocket of resistance’ is forming there.

Here is a small portion of the story at Aberdeen News (you have to subscribe to see it):

Things got heated at a lecture by Ron Branstner at the Best Western Ramkota Hotel in Aberdeen on Thursday when Corey Heidelberger defended a piece from his blog, Dakota Free Press, that Branstner critiqued in front of the group of about 200 assembled.

Heidelberger and Branstner began talking over each other, and members from the audience began shouting “get out” to Heidelberger, who is running for state Senate.

This happened during the question-and-answer portion at the end of Branstner’s lecture.

Branstner asked that things not get violent and the crowd quieted down.

The beginning portion of his lecture used a digital slide show as a guide as Branstner spoke off the cuff.
Much of his speech attempted to discredit the U.S. refugee resettlement program, which in South Dakota is run by Lutheran Social Services.

He also spoke out against Islamic groups, President Barack Obama’s administration and illegal immigration.

By the way, I have met Ron Branstner, great guy, and an extremely knowledgeable private citizen who has done his homework about how the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program is busy supplying large multi-national corporations with immigrant workers.

One major conclusion for me at the end of my tour—-it is about MONEY! (and it is about producing Democrat voters by shoving diversity down the throats of unsuspecting towns and cities!).

Update August 16th :  For a laugh, see some more on Heidelberger by clicking here.

Twin Falls, Idaho again! It has gotten worse! Now three refugee criminal arrests since June

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 12, 2016

When I asked two days ago, could it get any worse for Twin Falls, little did I know that a third criminal arrest had occurred in the ‘poster city’ for what a large refugee influx can do to your town.

College of Southern idaho

In an unusual arrangement, the College of Southern Idaho is the refugee contracting agency in Twin Falls. It is a subcontractor of USCRI, one of the nine major US State Department contractors. Learn more about USCRI here: https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2016/08/05/breitbart-looks-at-the-woman-behind-twin-falls-idaho-refugee-flow/

Here is the news from Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart (the Eritrean was angry at the Bosnian! Isn’t diversity beautiful?):

A refugee from Eritrea was arrested on felony aggravated battery charges in Twin Falls, Idaho on July 28.

Mulugeta Zemu Mana, 32, told the presiding judge at his Twin Falls bond hearing, “The only guilt I have is the day I decided to come to this country.”

His alleged victim is another refugee, Samuel Gebreegziabher. The arresting officer, Dzevad Mustafic, was also a resettled refugee whose country of origin is Bosnia and Herzegovina. Both disagree with Mana’s claim of innocence.

[….]

The court provided a taxpayer-funded interpreter of Tingrinya, his native language, and common in Eritrea and neighboring Ethiopia. Mana told the judge he “didn’t care” if his bond was set as high as $100 million.

The judge obliged and set bond at $100 million.

[….]

This is the third public report of an arrest in a major crime in Twin Falls since June that involves Muslims who have been resettled in the community en-masse to take lower-wage jobs in the expanding agricultural industry.

I’ve only snipped a bit of the story because I want you to go read the whole thing!  Click here!

Will this dangerous refugee ever be deported?  I doubt it!  He will be the ward of the US taxpayer for life—either behind bars or on welfare.  We talk a lot about security screening for terrorism, but we wonder if any refugees are screened for mental health problems?

It couldn’t get worse (or could it?) for Twin Falls defenders of the Muslim influx there

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 10, 2016

Bad news is piling up in Twin Falls, Idaho for those who are promoting the ‘sweetness and light’ narrative for the Muslim refugee community there.

screen-cap-640x480

I’m traveling with no time for a thorough re-hashing of the news.  So, please first read this incredible story about the latest sexual assault arrest there.

You can’t make this up!  The alleged perpetrator, Mohammed Hussein Ibraheim Eldai, is the same man that local news outlets quoted in a story in the wake of the Orlando Islamic terror attack.

Read Lee Stranahan here at Breitbart!  ‘Accused Twin Falls Muslim Was Used by Media as Example Two Months Ago’

A Muslim Twin Falls man arrested over the weekend and charged with sexually assaulting a mentally retarded woman was quoted by local media in June as representative of Muslims opposing “bad things” and bemoaning the fact that the “picture of Muslims is getting worse.”

Continue here.  He admitted to the sexual assault.

Money! Money! Money!

Then for all of you I’ve been meeting with over the last 3 and 1/2 weeks, through ten mid-western and western states, read this!  

This is Stranahan’s second piece of the day (click here!). Twin Falls is the poster city for exactly what we have been talking about.

Industries in need of cheap immigrant labor are changing the face of America—not as a grand experiment in promoting the joys of diversity and not to help the downtrodden—but to line the pockets of those running large global corporations (with the help of ‘charities,’ the US State Department and the blessings of lackeys in local government).

Be sure to see the list of all the food processing companies descending on southern Idaho.

Go here for our archive on Twin Falls.  It goes back to early 2015 when the new mosque was being trumpeted in the local newspaper.

Fox News on the refugee program: are we breaking through to mainstream media?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 10, 2016

I know that Fox News does occasionally report on the US Refugee Admissions Program, but not enough in my estimation. All of the heavy lifting in getting news out is falling on alternative media like Breitbart and World Net Daily.

Mohammed-Hussein-Eldai-Twin-Falls-police-photo-flickr-640x480

The latest arrest in Twin Falls: Is he a resettled refugee? Why is he in Twin Falls? http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/08/09/another-disturbing-sexual-assault-twin-falls/

Here is a recent piece by Melissa Jacobs for Fox News. There is nothing groundbreaking in the report but a couple of key points are mentioned (and that is a beginning for Fox).

One is the point that I have had confirmed over and over again in my travels. (I am almost done with my monthlong tour of American towns troubled by the secretive influx of refugees mostly to work for large manufacturing companies looking to keep their labor costs low by encouraging the resettlement of third world workers.)

Conclusion: The program is being driven by big business (meatpacking, manufacturing and other food processing) seeking labor.  Get the notion of humanitarianism as the main driver out of your heads!

The other point mentioned in here is the issue of refugee crime (see the latest just yesterday from Twin Falls, Idaho, here). There is so much Congress could do to tweak this program since they are too chicken to really attempt to reform it and sadly now that Speaker Paul Ryan has survived his primary fight expect more refugees next year and NO reform.

One thing Congress could attempt in a series of tweaks would be to create a data base for refugee/immigrant crimes.  As it stands now one is left guessing about immigration status every time someone with an African, Asian, or Middle Eastern name is arrested. How will we know if the much ballyhooed vetting works if we don’t have any record of the crimes committed by refugees?

Here are Jacobs’ opening paragraphs—it is about money!

Zeze Rwasama’s Idaho nonprofit gets $900 a head to meet Syrian refugees at the airport and help them adjust to their new lives in America, but some critics say the rush for federal tax dollars could put local communities at risk.

As director of the College of Southern Idaho Refugee Center, Rwasama is part of a broad network of contractors, faith-based organizations and charities working with the State Department to screen, transport and assimilate U.S.-bound refugees. They have played a vital role in bringing nearly 10,000 Syrian refugees to the U.S. over the last 12 months, a number slated to rise dramatically next year.

“We Americans are saving lives,” Rwasama, himself a Christian refugee from Rwanda, told FoxNews.com. “Because of my taxpayer dollars, they have a safe place to live.”

Critics of the vetting process say such organizations also have a duty to the unsuspecting communities into which they introduce potentially dangerous strangers. Several state lawmakers told FoxNews.com the government’s push to expand the program have created a taxpayer-funded gold rush that could expose cities and towns across America to crime and even terrorism.

Continue reading here (seems to be a strangely edited piece).

RRW has a ‘crimes’ category here where you can find additional refugee crime stories.  The 1,997 posts archived there include news from, not just the US, but from around the world. Happy reading!

Trump focuses on Minnesota Somali problem in advance of trip there in two weeks

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 7, 2016

Update August 10th:  Somali reaction in Maine to Trump’s comments, here.

Sometimes you just want to scream when you read Leftwing (Progressive) media reports like this one.  It begins in the usual style they must teach in J-school!  Sympathetic refugee STORY to soften readers up so that their main point (in this case that Donald Trump has it all wrong) goes down easier.

mayor-betsy-hodges-in-hijab

Minneapolis mayor Betsy Hodges threatens Trump in tweet: : “Donald Trump, do not go after Minnesota and our Somali population. Just don’t.”

The first thing I looked for was any mention of the marauding gang of Somalis that terrorized the Lake Calhoun suburb just a few weeks ago—not a word!

And, once again we see a mayor who shows no concern for constituents who are afraid or who see the economic writing on the wall as more poverty arrives in Minnesota.

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

In a Thursday speech, the Republican presidential candidate suggested that Somali refugees have turned Minnesota into a hotbed for terror recruitment and frayed its social safety net.

Trump’s swipe dominated discussion after Friday prayer at Ibrahim’s [the star of the story—ed] mosque in Burnsville.

[….]

For the state’s Somali community, Trump’s remarks inspired outrage, renewed calls to vote in November and plans to respond during the candidate’s planned visit to the state Aug. 19. Public officials, including Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges, fired back on social media. For organizers of events questioning refugee resettlement that have drawn growing crowds in outstate Minnesota this year, the speech offered welcome validation.

[….]

Trump serious

Quoting a 2015 Washington Times article, Trump said Minnesota’s Somali refugees have high unemployment rates and represent “a rich pool of potential recruiting targets for Islamist terror groups.”

“The state is having tremendous problems,” he said.

CAIR and Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison claim the Somalis  are helping local economies, but here near the end of the story, the Star Tribune admits some of the truth:

Amid a growing number of arrivals from other states, Minnesota has seen an increase in Somali food and cash assistance participation since 2010.

A recent report comparing various groups in the state paints a “stark” picture of the challenges Somali Minnesotans face, said Susan Brower, the state’s demographer. Almost 60 percent live under the poverty line, compared with 11 percent of all Minnesota. Unemployment of adults in the labor force stands at 20 percent, the highest of any group in the state.

Read it all here.

I recently visited three cities in Minnesota and I assure you they have a problem!  For new readers, see especially this post about 10,000 Somalis seeded in MN in ten years.

Everyone reading this post this morning should be doing everything in your power to elect Donald Trump.  Minnesotans must get out to support Trump when he gets there. 

He is saying the things that must be said and giving you permission to say them too!  If he loses, the flood gates will open to the third world like we have never seen before.  And, you will be silenced!

Twin Falls, Idaho: Breitbart reporter confirms little girl raped, father saw video

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 5, 2016

Because the ‘story’ doesn’t fit the narrative the No Borders Left has developed over the years of refugee children (Muslim children in this case) as literally the hope of the world, the mainstream media (including Fox News) has been silent about this dreadful story made worse by the attempts at the local government level to silence the critics.  Thanks to brave local citizens, the case will not be swept under the rug.

Twin-Falls-apartment-complex

Families of the boys accused in the alleged rape of 5 year old girl sit outside Twin Falls detention center. http://www.wnd.com/2016/06/muslim-migrant-boys-accused-of-assaulting-idaho-girl-5/

For new readers our archive on the case is here.  See especially posts on how the US Attorney for Idaho attempted to intimidate citizens who were demanding the case be thoroughly investigated.

Here is Lee Stranahan at Breitbart:

TWIN FALLS, IDAHO – In a shocking and exclusive interview with Breitbart News, the father of a five-year-old girl that was allegedly raped by refugee children reveals that he watched 30 seconds of a video of the assault taken by one of the three boys charged with the crime. The father also revealed that the parents of the refugee children had urged him not to call the police when he first learned of the attack.

Additionally, new allegations against a ten-year-old boy who was involved in the June 2 attack were revealed in court on Thursday afternoon, alleging the boy both anally and orally penetrated the five-year-old, in addition to urinating on her, as revealed by the father in the clip below. Previously, it had only been known that a seven-year-old boy had orally penetrated the girl and urinated on her.

The little girl’s parents, concerned about biased media coverage as well as their own personal safety and that of their daughter, have not been interviewed on videotape until this Thursday’s interview with Breitbart News.

Continue reading here.

We have been reporting on the controversy surrounding Twin Falls, the refugee program there and the role Chobani Yogurt is playing in changing Twin Falls with its desire for cheap immigrant labor ever since a new mosque was built there in January 2015.  See our Twin Falls archive here.

Twin Falls represents the same pattern I am seeing throughout my western road trip.  Big corporations looking for cheap immigrant labor are supplied with workers by the US State Department and its refugee resettlement contractors.  Local governments are often complicit (money!) as the character of small and medium cities are changed forever.  Citizens who object are labelled racists etc.

Do not be fooled the US Refugee Admissions Program is not about compassion for the poor and downtrodden!

Endnote: The resettlement contractor in Twin Falls is a subcontractor of USCRI, learn more about USCRI and Lavinia Limon, here.
