Swiss take Muslim assimilation seriously; girls can’t become citizens if they refuse coed swim class

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 30, 2016

Invasion of Europe news…..

swiss flagSwitzerland is one of the few countries in Europe not completely inundated with migrants from the Middle East and Africa.  And, if this news gets out in a big way, maybe fewer Muslim migrants will be knocking on their doors.

From the Washington Times:

The Swiss government recently rejected citizenship for two Muslim immigrant girls who refused to swim with boys in a coed class at school, USA Today said Tuesday, citing reports from Swiss media outlets.

“The girls, whose names were not disclosed, said their religion prevents them from participating in compulsory swimming lessons with males in the pool at the same time,” USA Today reported. “Their naturalization application was rejected because the sisters did not comply with the school curriculum, Basel authorities said.”

“In Switzerland, unlike in the United States and many other countries, integration into society is more important for naturalization than knowledge of national history or politics,” USA Today explained. “Candidates for citizenship must prove that they are well assimilated in their communities and respect local customs and traditions.”

Roughly 5 percent of Swiss citizens are Muslim, while more than 70 percent are Christian and 21.4 percent profess no religious affiliation, according to the CIA’s World Factbook.

While the Swiss constitution guarantees “[f]reedom of religion and conscience” and the right to “choose” and “profess” one’s religious or philosophical views “alone or in community with others,” in recent years the Swiss have sought to promote cultural assimilation among Muslim immigrants via legislative means.

A letter to the citizens of Radford, Virginia (a new targeted resettlement site)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 29, 2016

I’m not going to snip this must-read article published by Jeff Bayard at the Virginia Free Citizen today because I want you to go there and read the whole thing!  Bayard has nailed it—this is exactly what you can expect if your town is secretly chosen.

RadfordVAMainStreet

Radford Main Street. Learn more about the bucolic town on the New River here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radford,_Virginia

Radford, Virginia is apparently joining other towns that the UN/US State Department and their contractors have quietly targeted as new ‘welcoming’ (Ha!) resettlement locations.

The feds and the contractors and sub-contractors (like Catholic Charities) are anticipating increased numbers of refugees to be coming in to the country and they are running out of places to put them as existing resettlement towns (approximately 200 of them!) are becoming overloaded and community discord has set in.

We have reported on plans for new sites in Missoula, MT, Charleston, WV, Reno, NV, Ithaca, NY, Rutland, VT, and Fayetteville, AR, so far, just in the last few months.

Now here is a letter “to the citizens of Radford, VA” This is it in a nutshell!  The grassroots in Virginia have been studying how this program works for some time now and this essential article shows it!

Idaho update: City council meets again, citizen reports little girl afraid to go outside

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 29, 2016

This is the latest news from Twin Falls, Idaho about the case where three migrant boys from Sudan and Iraq are accused of sexually assaulting a 5 year old girl in their apartment complex.  Officials admit the boys have likely been in the US for less than two years, but say they do not know if the boys are UN/US State Department refugees, or whether they just drifted in to the US and made their way to rural Idaho.  I’m being cynical of course.

There is no ‘line’ to get into America from places like the Sudan and Iraq.  There are pretty much only two ways—either illegally as illegal aliens who crossed our borders or overstayed visas, or as resettled refugees.  Which is it?  I assure you that the US State Department, federal contractor US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI), and Jan Reeves*** (Idaho state refugee coordinator) know who these people are and exactly where they came from.

Twin-Falls-Mayor-Shawn-Barigar

Twin Falls mayor Democrat Shawn Barigar is angry that Twin Falls has been the subject of discussion on the world wide web by people who don’t share his values. (Which values?)

They could be what the federal government calls “secondary migrants”—refugees resettled in another city or state and who then move on their own to another location (often in search of jobs or better government services/welfare).

In recent years the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement (in HHS) has been tracking secondary migrants (as best as they can), so they know who these people are.  The College of Southern Idaho (the subcontractor operating under the USCRI umbrella in Twin Falls) says they were not resettled in Twin Falls, but by now they know where they came from—Boise maybe?

Whoever resettled them and to which city they were initially placed is known by Reeves and Barbara Day in Washington.  If they are not REFUGEES then Ms. Day needs to make a public statement to clarify that information (and, I will apologize for calling the boys refugees if they are not!).  

Silence means that Washington is hiding something.

I’m digressing.  Here is the latest (or at least the latest as of yesterday!) from Twin Falls.  Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily tells us this:

The 5-year-old Idaho girl who was sexually assaulted by migrant boys from Sudan and Iraq has become a “prisoner in her own house” since the crime was allegedly committed more than three weeks ago, says a close friend of the family.

That’s because one suspect’s family who was evicted from the apartment complex has still not moved out.

The families of the three boys involved – two from Sudan ages 10 and 14 and a third from Iraq age 7 – were all evicted from the Fawnbrook Apartments in Twin Falls last week following publicity about the sexual assault, which occurred June 2 in a laundry room at the complex. The Sudanese families immediately left the complex but the Iraqis still reside there, right next door to the victim.

Do not miss the two video clips from the most recent city council meeting embedded in this story.  Watch the mayor of Twin Falls tell residents to stop being emotional and then Julie Ruf, a citizen who has doggedly pressed elected officials on the case, calmly explain to the mayor and council that citizens should get emotional about a little girl being violated and now kept prisoner in her own home because one of the alleged perpetrators is still her neighbor.

Continue reading here.

And, by the way, US Attorney Wendy Olson has walked back her previous comments that demonstrated her political bias and appeared to threaten free speech rights. Hohmann has reported on her latest missive.  (Consider this! If Hillary is elected you will see Olson keep her job, if Trump is President in 2017, he will hopefully be cleaning house at the Justice Department!).

Update:  More on Olson’s attempt to extricate herself from the controversy, here.

If you are new here today, click here, for previous posts on the case and Twin Falls generally.

*** 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.)

Fargo: Lutheran federal refugee contractor kept information on active TB from public

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 27, 2016

In yet another in a series of investigative reports on Tuberculosis, and diseases generally, in the refugee population coming to America, Michael Patrick Leahy now reports that in Fargo, North Dakota the lead contractor bringing refugees to that state was not forthcoming about information one assumes they would know—-how many of the refugees they resettle there have latent and active TB.

Lutheran Fargo building

Doing well by doing good! This time last year, LSSND was busy with its grand opening of its huge brand spanking new headquarters in Fargo. Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney was on hand for the ribbon cutting. http://www.kvrr.com/news/local-news/nd-lutheran-social-services-celebrates-grand-opening/33595274

Breitbart:

Dr. John Baird, Health Officer for the Fargo Cass Public Health Department in North Dakota, confirms to Breitbart News that the agency, which serves all of Cass County, has diagnosed and treated four refugees with active tuberculosis (TB) between 2012 and 2015.

Baird’s confirmation of active TB among refugees in the Fargo community comes barely a month after a spokesperson for Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota (LSSND), the resettlement agency hired by the federal government to operate the program in North Dakota, denied that any refugees it has resettled in North Dakota have been diagnosed with active TB.

“We have a good working relationship with NDDoH [North Dakota Department of Health], and have not encountered any issues pertaining to active TB disease among refugees,” an LSSND spokesperson told Fargo’s local NBC television affiliate, KVLY, as reported by the station’s Valley News Live program on May 16.

“Based on Dr. Baird’s statement, the LSS statement to Valley News Live in May was factually inaccurate at best, and an intentional deception at worst,” Breitbart News said in an email to LSSND, asking for a comment to explain their statement that they “have not encountered any issues pertaining to active TB disease among refugees.”

Continue reading here for more important details in an article that once again shows the complete lack of transparency on the part of federal contractors and some officials that work closely with them.

I continue to wonder if community members who sign up with the contractor (LSS in this case) to help refugees get settled are given any instructions in how to avoid exposing themselves to any communicable diseases or parasites.  Does anyone know? Has anyone who volunteered for a resettlement agency been briefed on health issues?

See also our post last week about Fargo’s welcoming Democrat Mayor Tim Mahoney. Fargo has been selected by some millionaires and billionaires as a Gateway to Growth, here.

On the Bhutanese refugees

Leahy mentions that the large numbers of Bhutanese refugees (and some Somalis) come from countries with high levels of TB. For new readers, the Bhutanese (not! Muslims) are really ethnic Nepalis who had been expelled from Bhutan when that country sought to keep Bhutan for true Bhutanese people.  The refugees’ (we call Bhutanese) original country is Nepal.  Nepal wouldn’t take them back so they lived in UN camps on the border of Nepal for 20 years or so.

We had no national interest that would lead us to get involved in this refugee situation…but we did!

In 2007, the George W. Bush Administration said (heck yeh!) we would help the UN by cleaning out those camps and ‘welcoming’ (the original number was somewhere around 60,000) of them to live in your towns.  I bet we are now up to 80,000 who have been transported on your dime from UN camps to your cities.  And, the camps are still not cleaned out because more arrive at the camps looking for a plane ticket to the west!

We have a huge (and I mean huge!) archive on the Bhutanese here at RRW (find more than you ever wanted to know).  The big medical issue that brought them to the attention of the federal government and the CDC was not TB, but the extremely high suicide rate after resettlement to the US.  Why are they killing themselves asked the CDC and the ORR (Office of Refugee Resettlement)? Could it be culture shock?

Endnote:  Just now I had a look at LSSND’s website. So tell me why a Lutheran non-profit group is now in partnership to build low income housing in North Dakota.  See here.  Forget the humanitarian BS, this is all a money making racket! Lutherans get paid by the feds to bring in the refugees and then they make money building them housing!

This post is filed in our ‘health issues’ category with 304 previous posts. Leahy’s previous reports are posted there.  You will find the Bhutanese suicide posts filed there too.

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!

Church World Service’s NJ refugee agency head, Mahmoud Mahmoud, frets about Brexit

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 25, 2016

They were having a World Refugee Day event in the shadow of the World Trade Center this week as news of the Brexit vote sent shock waves to the US refugee contractors.

Mahmoud Mahmoud

Church World Service’s Mahmoud Mahmoud blasts opposition to refugee resettlement here: http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/2015/11/jersey_city_syrian_refugees_group_resettlement.html

It is pretty obvious that America’s immigration control movement got a huge boost from the British vote to leave the EU on Thursday. And as we said previously, if German Chancellor Merkel hadn’t opened the floodgates of Europe, this vote would likely have had a different outcome.

I believe that critical mass is being reached on the issue of immigration control and refugees. Mahmoud knows it too, in spite of his optimistic prediction at the end of this story.

From NJTV News:

Families, advocates and officials gathered to celebrate World Refugee Day in the long shadow cast by the UK’s Brexit vote to leave the European Union — a vote some call anti-immigrant.

“I was a bit shocked, you know, because you never thought that the EU was going to break. But I do think that this is going to have a ripple effect throughout Europe,” said Mahmoud Mahmoud, Church World Service director of the Jersey City office.

Donald Trump praised the vote while visiting his golf course in Scotland.

“I really do see a parallel between what’s happening in the United States and what’s happening here. People want to see borders. They don’t necessarily want people pouring into their country that they don’t know who they are and where they come from,” Trump said.

[….]

Whether Brexit’s ripple effect reaches here: “Donald Trump has his views, but at the end of the day, the majority of Americans have shown that they want to welcome individuals and we are a nation of immigrants,” Mahmoud said. [I’m not so sure, the polls were wrong on Brexit after all—-ed]

In a political atmosphere fraught with division, nonprofits in New Jersey keep hoping to add more refugee families.

More here.

Readers may recall that NJ Governor Chris Christie has stopped cooperating with the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program, but he hasn’t done all he could do to slow the flow to NJ.

Boys in Idaho sexual assault case released from custody

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 24, 2016

Here is the latest, including more on CAIR (more concerned with the “anti-Muslim” angle to the story than for the little girl’s well being) , at World Net Daily last night. (Emphasis is mine)

The two Muslim migrant boys from Sudan who were arrested last week on charges of sexually assaulting a 5-year-old girl in Idaho were released into the custody of their parents following a hearing Thursday afternoon, WND has learned.

Jan Reeves

For reporters wishing to find out more about what the heck is going on, this is the man you should call. Jan Reeves (an Obama designated Champion of Change) has been calling the shots on refugees going to the state of Idaho for 25 years. He probably won’t tell you a thing, but he knows who these kids are and where they came from. The Idaho Office for Refugees is a ‘non-profit’ group largely funded by US taxpayers. http://www.idahorefugees.org/contact-us.html

They were reportedly released from the Snake River Juvenile Detention Center in Twin Falls pending their next hearing.

According to witnesses on the scene, the boys’ families were seen smiling and hugging after the hearing ended shortly before 3 p.m. Thursday.

“They were waving their arms to the heavens, smiling and throwing their arms around each other,” an eyewitness outside the detention center told WND.

The two Sudanese boys, ages 10 and 14, were reportedly ordered by the court to have no contact with the victim, a 5-year-old special-needs girl, whom they allegedly assaulted in the laundry room of their apartment complex on June 2. They were not arrested until late last week. [Would they have been arrested if citizens hadn’t spoken up?—ed].

A third boy, age 7, was also involved but was never arrested. The younger boys allegedly urinated on the girl and one of them inappropriately touched her but the extent of that violation is not known. The case has been sealed by the prosecutor, which is standard procedure in juvenile offenses.

The older boy, 14, allegedly filmed the entire incident.

The two older boys are from Sudan and the 7-year-old is from Iraq.

The boys and their families have been evicted from the Fawnbrook Apartments where the incident allegedly took place.

There is much more, continue reading here and see what experts say about the acts the boys are alleged to have subjected the little girl to.

And, go here for our previous coverage.

In one week RRW will be 9 years old and in those years our ‘crimes’ category has amassed 1,976 posts before this one!  There are stories about rapes, murders, terrorism, theft, and assorted other fraud perpetrated by refugees we “welcomed” to America cataloged there.

CAIR says investigate sexual assault in Twin Falls, Idaho; case is a lightning rod

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 23, 2016

This is what CAIR Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper said this morning on CAIR’s facebook page:

3 hrs ·

‪#‎CAIR‬: Idaho prosecutor denies Syrian refugees gang-raped girl (Reuters)

Anti-Muslim agitators and those opposed to resettlement of refugees from the Syrian civil war nevertheless seized on the incident to buttress their arguments for shutting down a refugee center in Twin Falls to prevent entry by displaced Syrians…

Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, said the Idaho sexual assault should be fully investigated but added the case had become a lightning rod for anti-Muslim, and anti-refugee sentiments.

“These two forms of hostility seem to be overlapping and reinforcing each other,” he said.

The families of the boys who are alleged to have sexually assaulted a five year old girl in Twin Falls have received eviction notices from the landlord of the Fawnbrook Apartments.  BTW, this Idaho Statesman story does admit one of the boys touched the girl and it is described as a criminal act.  (See eviction letter here)

See also, several updates at the World Net Daily story, here, about the case (including new photo).

Sec. of State Kerry visits “Jihad Central” to celebrate World Refugee Day

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 21, 2016

The White House tells us that Sec. of State Kerry went to the ADAMS Center (aka Jihad Central) yesterday to celebrate World Refugee Day!

Watch and listen to Kerry praise the “wonderful work” the ADAMS Center does, by clicking here.

I had a good laugh when I saw this press release from the White House tooting the Administration’s own horn about what great things they are doing for (Muslim) refugees and for America.  What B.S.!

I don’t get how the obviously planted stories (like this one) about how we ARE NOT going to get to Obama’s and John Kerry’s goal of admitting 85,000 refugees this year meshes with the White House message.  And, I especially laughed when I thought of that dreadful Idaho case making the news 3 weeks late, but ironically on World Refugee Day.

Here is Ms. Cecilia Munoz with the horn-tooting message:

Every year, on World Refugee Day, communities across the globe honor the courage and resilience of refugees and celebrate their contributions to the communities where they have started life anew.

As the President highlighted in his World Refugee Day statement, this year’s commemoration comes at an especially challenging time. More people are fleeing persecution and being displaced by violence than at any time on record. That’s why the President has challenged his team – and world leaders – to do even more in response to today’s unprecedented challenge.

At the White House, we are honored to work alongside a deeply committed team that is focused on strengthening our response to the needs of refugees around the world. Our colleagues at the Departments of State and Homeland Security are working hard to meet the President’s goal of admitting 85,000 refugees this year, including at least 10,000 Syrian refugees, and to prepare to resettle even more refugees next year, a process that involves extensive reviews and security screenings. And the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is providing resettled refugees with critical resources to fully integrate and maximize their potential once they arrive.

We are also preparing for the President’s Leaders’ Summit on Refugees, which will take place later this year on the margins of the 71st session of the UN General Assembly. At this global gathering, President Obama and other world leaders are seeking to generate broader and deeper commitments to increase humanitarian aid for refugees, provide refugees in more countries with new resettlement opportunities, and help more children go to school and allow adults to work and support themselves and their families. [How is Obama going to explain to the UN the huge backlash in America against the idea of resettling more Muslim refugees!—-ed]

More confirmation that “interfaith” groups and mosques are using the refugee program to increase the Muslim population of the US:

And later today, Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with interfaith leaders, refugees who have been resettled to the United States, and representatives from refugee resettlement organizations. He will also give remarks as a part of an interfaith iftar at the ADAMS center, a mosque located in Sterling, Virginia, which has a strong history and record of working with interfaith partners to support the resettlement of refugees.

Again, visit Kerry’s remarks at the ADAMS Center. He takes a whack at Trump and you “bigots.”

Missoula, MT refugee arrivals could begin in August, most will be Muslims

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 18, 2016

This is the latest from Montana, a state which hasn’t had any refugee flow for a number of years, but is now about to get its first resettlement office.  We have been following the controversy for months and urge you to go here and review the political strife in Big Sky Country over the plan.

Bob Johnson IRC

IRC’s Bob Johnson said he was instructed by his superiors in New York to not discuss recent Islamic terror attack against gay night club in Orlando. Photo: http://www.rescue.org/blog/bob-johnson-refugee-resettlement-director-seattle

Early on, suggestions were made by the proponents and those carrying the water for the International Rescue Committee (the primary federal refugee resettlement company in charge of the office), that there probably wouldn’t be Syrians in the initial flow. But, it seems all that has changed and that most of the refugees that could be chosen for Montana are in fact Muslims.

Here is the news at the Missoulian:

Bob Johnson, a senior adviser for the IRC’s Seattle office, returned to Missoula this week to make preparations for the reopening of a refugee resettlement office. He said the agency for whom he’s worked 40 years instructed its people to abstain from commenting publicly in the wake of the Florida shootings.

Announcement of the Missoula office’s executive director is still a couple of weeks away, and it now looks like it’ll be August before the first refugees arrive in town. In March the IRC contracted with the U.S. State Department to resettle up to 100 refugees in Missoula in the first year, a figure that can be adjusted up or down in subsequent years.

The State Department approved a staff of 2 1/2 in Missoula – the executive director, a caseworker and a half-time finance manager. The latter two jobs are still being advertised.

The IRC says it will give from two weeks to two months notice of where the first refugees will come from, said Mary Poole of Soft Landing Missoula, the volunteer organization that successfully made the case to the IRC to open the Missoula office.

[….]

What is clear is there’s a better chance than first thought that some of the refugees will come from Syria. The U.S. has been slow to meet President Barack Obama’s pledge to resettle 10,000 displaced Syrians this fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30. National Public Radio reported this week that so far that number is just 2,800, but a White House National Security spokesman said the U.S. remains committed to the president’s plan.

Virtually all Syrians arriving in the US now are Muslims. Of course Afghans and ROHINGYA*** are Muslims. Most of those from DR Congo are very needy, mentally troubled, but mostly non-Muslims. Does Missoula have good mental health facilities? 

An IRC official in April told a reception hosted by Soft Landing that because Missoula has no established nationality base of refugees, it’s likely that its first families will come from a population that has no family ties in the U.S. According to the Missoula Independent, those could be Syrian families of four to 10 members; Afghans; families and single-woman households from the Republic of Congo; or Rohingyas, an ethnic Muslim minority from Myanmar (Burma).

What a wonderful coincidence, the schools in Missoula have been teaching Arabic (the number one language of refugees entering the US) for a few years already!

The 6-year-old Arabic language and culture program in Missoula’s three public high schools was another unexpected asset to the IRC.

Continue reading here.

And, if you feel like it, visit reporter Jared Goyette’s piece from several weeks ago.  It is a typical warm and fuzzy, touchy-feely discussion about how one opponent of the plan got friendly with a proponent of the plan.  I have been meaning to write about it, but the only point I need to make is this:  Mary and Drew are nice people, but don’t fall for the emotional stuff that Jared is peddling.

You have every right to question, in a clear-eyed unemotional way, public policy in your state that will effect your wallet, your safety, your health and the social cohesion of your community forever!

***Learn more about devout Rohingya Muslims here.  We have 189 posts on this ethnic group and only yesterday we mentioned that we are admitting them to our towns and cities now by the thousands.  Remember this! The Rohingya are not our problem.  They have been fighting for decades with the Buddhists in Burma.  We did nothing to make the Rohingya our responsibility!  (Not that any others are ours either. But, the Left loves to tell us we are responsible for wrecking Iraq and so those are ours!).
