St. Cloud Times weaves conspiracy theory about “secret conversations;” says private meetings no longer allowed in America

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 4, 2015

An editorial yesterday in the St. Cloud Times makes me laugh!

It was only last week that they called on a professional communicator, Professor Aric Putnam from a Catholic college, to call me out for promoting conspiracy theories, here.

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the St. Cloud State Muslim Student Association organized a public meeting in St. Cloud in April. That tells you who is running the show in St. Cloud. And, by the way, has the St. Cloud Times checked CAIR’s “facts?” Could someone point me to that story. Photo: Jason Wachter, jwachter@stcloudtimes.com

Now, that very same paper says that citizens in America are no longer allowed to exercise their Constitutional right to peaceably assemble in a group of like-minded people!

Our meeting was by invitation only!

We were receiving threats that “progressive activists” were planning to disrupt a meeting we (ACT for America chapter leader and myself) were holding in St. Cloud.

We wanted our guests to not be subjected to hateful vitriol by a bunch of Leftwing community agitators. 

And, frankly, remember readers, you are not obligated to invite hostile media to any meeting in America!

Is the St. Cloud Times saying here that  it is not permitted, in the people’s republic of Minnesota, to hold private meetings?  Could they be spinning conspiracy theories themselves?

Talk about scare tactics!  It is a joke—“secret conversations!”  No wonder small city newspapers are dying.

Here is the editorial yesterday (hat tip:  Margaret):

Let’s keep talking, but let’s have those talks in public.

[….]

Unfortunately, there also have been some bad — or worse — secret conversations. [EEEK!!!—ed] Topping that list was the April 23 visit from Ann Corcoran, editor and founder of Refugee Resettlement Watch. She traveled all the way from Maryland to host an invitation-only meeting to promote her organization’s mission to “educate citizens about Refugee Resettlement Policy of the U.S. Government.”

Corcoran’s presentation was not open to the public. So while it’s impossible to know what she covered, a sampling of her opinions posted online indicate her message was likely rooted in disparaging all Muslims and especially those from Somalia.

To be clear, there are valid questions to ask federal elected officials about U.S. immigration policies they refuse to change.

However, Corcoran’s tactics — from secret meetings to extremist stereotyping — don’t have Washington, D.C. as their target. Instead, she’s much more focused on exploiting and expanding local fear of the unknown. Then, of course, it’s time for her to pack her bags and move to the next struggling community.

Struggling communities, here I come!

By the way, go here (scroll down to April 23, Part 1 and Part 2) to listen to my radio interview immediately following our “secret meeting,” so you can hear the gist of what we discussed in private—that every town in America receiving third world refugees (chosen by the UN) has the right to the FACTS on what is happening to their community.

Hey, I will bet you a million bucks that CAIR has held private meetings in St. Cloud and that the St. Cloud Times never threw a hissy-fit about their private (secret) conversations!  Why? Fear!

Amarillo, TX teacher, who works with refugees, is Obama’s Teacher of the Year

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 2, 2015

It makes me laugh (almost) to see how clever Obama and his comrades are in promoting its ‘welcoming’ meme to the media and to make it harder for teachers to speak up about their troubled and overloaded multicultural classrooms.

Shanna Peeples received the Teacher of the Year award this week. Ms. Peeples works with Somali and Iraqi high school students in overloaded Amarillo. Hat tip: Frank http://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2015/04/29/obama-honoring-texas-teacher-who-works-with-war-refugees

Amarillo, Texas schools are in a shambles as we have reported here, here and here.

In 2012 and ever since, the mayor of the city, has been begging the resettlement contractors to slow the flow of refugees coming into the city.

To its credit, Catholic Charities did request that the US State Department not send its usual allotment to Amarillo and what did the State Department do—it sent the same large number to another contractor in town!

This is a quote in December 2014 from Nancy Koons, the director of Catholic Charities who recognized the crisis the Amarillo Independent School District (AISD) was having:

It wasn’t long before I heard from numerous concerned residents and staff from the Amarillo Independent School District. It was clear that the increasing rate of resettlement needed to slow down significantly to allow the community to catch up with challenges brought about by dramatic demographic changes.

I invited officials from USCCB in Washington D.C., and the state refugee coordinator from Austin to meet with representatives from AISD to hear their challenges.

At this meeting, AISD representatives graciously articulated extraordinary challenges in the schools. They begged USCCB and the state refugee coordinator to slow down the rate of resettlement to give AISD and the community the opportunity to “catch up,” and enable them to better serve all of the student population.

So what happened?  As I just said, Catholic Charities did cut its numbers, but the US State Department simply sent Catholic Charities usual allotment to another contractor in town!

By the way, Amarillo is one more meatpacking town…see what I mean about BIG MEAT changing America!  And, it is a city that has been developing as apocket of resistance.’

Obama and comrades, with this pick for teacher of the year (I am sure she is a wonderful teacher), cleverly cut off criticism from other teachers who might be troubled by the extremely large refugee load they carry in their classrooms.

Texas is the Number 1 resettlement state in the nation. Turning red state Texas blue?

Endnote: I’m going to urge you all to read or re-read this article by Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily in which he very succinctly describes Obama’s plan to seed American cities with migrants (legal and illegal), and you darn well better be welcoming—-or else!

To date, 815 Syrian refugees admitted to US; 92% are Muslim

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 1, 2015

Since yesterday was the end of the month, I thought it was time to check out the government data bases to see how many Syrian refugees have been admitted to the US over the last few years (I went back to January 1, 2012).  Remember that the UN has 11,000 Syrians picked out for us and that the FBI testified in February that they cannot be screened because there are no records available on these people who fled Syria and are mostly living in UN camps.

Deciding the future for your towns and cities: Anne Richard, Asst. Sec. of State for PRM and Antonio Guterres, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. She is under pressure to keep Guterres happy!

The US State Department is on a push to get 2,000 to your towns by September 30th (the end of FY2015).  That is not nearly what the UN wants, but is the result of the difficult security screening process that the FBI told Congress about.

This is what I learned:

Since 2012 we admitted 815 Syrian refugees through the Refugee Admissions Program.  On April 4th, I reported 682

They are on a roll now—133 admitted in the last few weeks.

The top five states receiving Syrians are:

California (103)

Texas (100)

Illinois (87)

Arizona (64)

Pennsylvania (51)

36 states received some Syrians.

Of the 815 Syrians, 749 are Muslims of some sort with the vast majority (701) being Sunni Muslims That means 92% are Muslim.

If you are being told in your town that you are going to get mostly Christians, don’t believe it.  Only 43 self-identified ‘Christians’ (that includes 1 Catholic) have been admitted.  That is 5% of the total.

Don’t forget!  The contractors are pushing for 65,000 Syrians to be admitted to the US by the time Obama leaves office!

By the way, if you are saying to yourself that there are a lot more than 815 Syrians around, remember that there are other legal programs that have admitted, or allowed Syrians to stay in the US , and also some very likely illegal alien Syrians in the mix as well.

Catholics want their cake and eat it too! Again!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 30, 2015

Your tax dollars:

Here is one more whiny opinion piece by a Catholic ‘leader’ about the Obama Administration order that says if you get federal money, you have to offer abortion services.  That puts the US Conference of Catholic Bishops between a rock and a hard place doesn’t it?  They can’t take care of the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ they have been paid for years to shelter, unless they provide access to abortions.

It is a very simple concept that every one of these Catholic writers try very hard to muddy the waters on:  If you take Caesar’s money, you have to follow Caesar’s rules!

From Catholic News Service where author John Garvey starts out with a little sobbing for the “children.”

John Garvey is the president of The Catholic University of America in Washington.

 Last year a crisis unfolded as thousands of children, some as young as 6, made their way alone from their Central American home countries and attempted a dangerous crossing into the United States. Many little ones died lonely deaths in the desert. Thousands were fortunately rescued by federal authorities and now fall under our government’s care.

It’s an open question whether — or how many — of these children should stay, but they are children. The federal government cannot simply house them in prisons. It must find ways to occupy them constructively — to educate them, even — while they await final disposition of their court cases.

Uncle Sam outsourced this work, as he often does, to the U.S. bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services*** and other experienced refugee organizations, some of which are faith-based. That made sense.  [Outsourced is, of course, a nice way of saying the feds PAY us!—ed]

But on Christmas Eve (presumably to avoid attention), the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services published an interim final rule that could disrupt this arrangement. It is designed to guarantee abortion access for minors in this precarious position, on the off chance that any of them might have become pregnant as a result of having been sexually abused.

[….]

“This,” the coalition of Christian groups wrote, “will have the effect of disqualifying our organizations from being primary grantees, the very organizations that have the most experience in providing services to unaccompanied minors and are best qualified to serve as grantees. Such a discriminatory effect would immediately work to the detriment of the children who are the intended beneficiaries of the program.”  [It is all for the “children” except that it isn’t, it is about the Bishops’ money!—ed]

*** We examined the USCCB’s Migration Fund here and learned that the majority (98%!) of their millions and millions of dollars each year comes from you—the US taxpayer!   Of course Catholics are free to care for migrant children, refugees and immigrants generally with their own private charity and thus not have this rule, that flies in the face of their supposed religious beliefs (from the guy the majority of Catholics voted for) dictating what they do.

But, alas in order to hold on to their principles, they would have to dig into their own private pockets instead of stealing from the taxpayer.

CIS: Important testimony on Obama’s new “rogue” refugee plan for Central American ‘kids’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 29, 2015

Last week the brave and indefatigable Senator Jeff Sessions held a hearing in his Senate Judiciary Committee, Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, about Obama’s new refugee program for Central American Minors (CAM) program.

Once again, Obama is writing immigration law from the White House as he colonizes your towns with “new” Americans.

For those of you wanting to understand how this already-launched Obama “refugee” resettlement plan works, see this important testimony presented by Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies last week.

Once the Central American “children” are deemed refugees, then what is to stop every poor country in the world from demanding that their children are given the same advantage and designated refugees as well?

Here (below) is how she begins (and a few snips follow).  Perhaps the most important bit you should understand is that the “children” streaming across our southern border, or those still at home in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras are NOT refugees by the internationally understood definition of what does make one a refugee—they must first prove that they are PERSECUTED for one of several reasons.

Obama is changing (broadening!) the definition of ‘refugee’ in such a way that anyone in the world could call themselves a refugee if they need a job and have crime in their country and for those reasons demand entrance into the US.  This CAM program is the proverbial camel getting its nose under the tent!

And, one important reason Obama wants the “children” designated as refugees (besides the simple flooding of America with potential new voters for the Dems because refugees can move quickly to citizenship) is that all of the welfare goodies available to Americans will be available to them as well upon arrival.

Vaughan calls the Obama plan a “rogue” refugee program (emphasis is mine):

Jessica Vaughn, Director of Policy Studies, Center for Immigration Studies. http://cis.org/Vaughan

 Thank you, Chairman Sessions and Ranking Member Schumer, for the opportunity to testify on the new Central American Minors (CAM) Refugee/Parole Program, and the impact this controversial program will have on American communities. Both the CAM Program and the Haitian Family Reunification Program (HFRP), a similarly problematic endeavor, are dramatic departures from existing law and policy on the admission of refugees, grants of parole, and the family reunification process established by Congress. The criteria for participating in the program differ significantly from what the law stipulates for refugees and parolees. The programs have been presented to the public in a deceptive way, perhaps in an effort to avoid public criticism for what are plainly unlawful, unprecedented, and costly schemes. These programs are an egregious abuse of executive authority; perhaps with good intentions, but that is no substitute for the law. Worst of all, there is no indication that either program can succeed in achieving the stated goal of deterring people from contracting with criminal smuggling organizations to bring their family members to the United States. The result will be a continued erosion of the integrity of immigration law, exploding costs for taxpayers, needless public safety problems, and continued illegal immigration from this part of the world.

[….]

The clear focus of the program is on family reunification, not escaping persecution, which is the legal basis for U.S. and international refugee programs. The stated goal is to provide an alternative to traditional – and dangerous – pathways of illegal migration to the United States to join family members who migrated earlier. The existence of persecution is not mentioned in the statement, nor in other official explanations about the CAM program.

[….]

….government and news media reports all indicate that the main reason for the influx of juveniles from Central America is not rampant or particularlized persecution, but to join family members who are already living here, to escape difficult living conditions, and because Obama administration policies allow it.

[….]

While the problems of violence, poverty and lack of opportunity in Central America are real and pervasive, and we cannot be oblivious to them, Congress wisely has not recognized these conditions as appropriate grounds for refugee status. If it had, then much of the world could demand resettlement, including many in the United States.

Keep in mind that the ‘parents’ supposedly lawfully present in the US, who must apply for their kids to enter, are in most cases here in some form of temporary legal status, but once the ‘kid’ becomes a refugee, who would ever throw out the Moms and Pops? In other words, the kid will anchor the family!

There is much, much, more and I urge you to read it so that you know that a few thousand more ‘kids’ coming in as refugees is not the issue.  A more significant impact than the modest numbers of CAMs (which might seem insignificant in the overall scheme of things) is that Obama is changing refugee law!

One final note, especially galling to me is the fact that processing the ‘kids’ into the country will be up to the refugee subcontractors, list here.  And, surely they will be getting more of your hard-earned dollars to do the paperwork!

For new readers, we have an extensive archive on the so-called “Unaccompanied minors” going back several years, here.

Is the Left using Islam, or is it the other way around?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 27, 2015

That’s a question I think about from time to time.  I happen to think Islam is using the political Left, or no, more precisely, I believe that Islam will destroy the Left the first chance it gets, no matter which side is the number one user right now.

However, LOL!, I don’t spend too much time thinking about it because then one gets nothing done to try to stop them both!

Writing at American Thinker, J. Robert Smith attacks the conundrum in his thoughtful piece entitled: ‘Where the Left and Islam Intersect.’

In the name of Islam, ISIS fighters throw a gay man to his death from a rooftop. Why the silence from the Left? Why doesn’t the Left get it? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2914785/Thrown-death-gay-s-latest-abomination-one-expert-argues-images-betray-radical-Muslims-new-thirst-killing-justice.html

I’ve snipped a bit, but please read the whole thing.  Emphasis below is mine:

Curious how the godless left and Islam share a critical aim. They both wish to subjugate infidels, though how infidel is defined differs. But who the infidels are isn’t. We are, of course, the infidels. We of western virtues and values. We who hold to Judeo-Christian beliefs. We’re obstacles to glorious futures for both. Both want us consigned to dhimmitude. Yes, dhimmitude. That’s second class status, with tribute being paid for the privilege.

Marked differences and tensions exist between the left and Islam, to be sure. But is the left using Islam for its ends, and Islam — for the time being — willingly being used?

The enemy of my enemy is my friend

Today,… it isn’t just Western capitalism that the left wants Islam to sic. It’s the totality of Western Civilization. Leftism has expanded its agenda beyond Marx-focused economics. For the left to get us to dhimmitude, that means “deconstructing” our culture and society; upending our mores and traditions; shattering our institutions; demeaning faith and marginalizing the faithful. Its gains are evident all around us.

From Marx onward, the left has operated by a simple rule vis-à-vis Islam: the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

[….]

Most Americans have a hard time accepting that fellow citizens might knowingly act in ways injurious to the security and welfare of the nation. The 20th Century had more than a few Americans who worked to advance communism in opposition to vital national interests. In extreme cases, some Americans acted treasonously. Do the names Julius and Ethel Rosenberg ring a bell? How about Alger Hiss?

[….]

Not every American identifying with the left acts from malice. There are followers and fellow travelers. Your Aunt Jane may be a lefty, but she wouldn’t want harm to come to her country. There are gullible souls who think it’s all about Kumbaya. Spoken of here are leftist intellectuals, chattering classes, politicians, and career activists who either seek or welcome Islam’s role in “transforming” America and the West.

Immigration (Al-Hijra) = Infiltration

What’s in it for Muslims if they know they’re being used? Infiltration, for one. Western Europeans long ago opened their borders to Muslims. The need originally was labor. Western Europe’s elites — left-dominated — have, post-World War II, imported millions of Muslims.  [Let me be clear, it isn’t just the Left looking for cheap labor here in America. Big businesses, like the meatpackers! and some Republicans are selling us out!—ed]

Fatal flaw in the Left’s thinking:  that they will control Islam, discard it when they wish.

A fatal conceit exists on the left in its use of Islam. It’s this: leftists are in every way superior to Muslims. Islam, violent and useful, though dangerous, is primitive and no match for the great minds and godless certitudes of “progressivism.” Islam can be used and then dispensed with. But the left underestimates the power of an ancient faith — and its faithful — at its own peril.

Read it all.

Houston, TX: “Dazzling diversity” turns red states blue

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 26, 2015

This is one of those warm and fuzzy stories telling us about the joys of diversity in the midst of cowboy country.  Frankly, it made me think it might already be too late to save our conservative values and American way of life.  The newcomers are going to want their stuff, their government services, and the Democrats will be right there to give it to them.  Why would any of them vote Republican? But, of course that is why our Republican leadership is looking more and more like Democrats these days!

Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston is a leader in turning a red state blue. https://www.catholiccharities.org/services/programs-refugee

By the way, Texas is the Number One state in the nation for refugee resettlement.

From the Houston Chronicle.  Hat tip: Diane.  Emphasis is mine.

This is a city of contrasts. It is a hub of first-rate medical institutions with almost one-fourth of its population uninsured. One of the nation’s most ethnically mixed metro areas and, at the same time, one of its most economically segregated. Routinely ranked top in the country for job growth, with a school system where 80 percent of students are disadvantaged.

An amalgam of promise and pitfalls.

It is also a region of dazzling diversity – and becoming more so every day.

More than 1 million immigrants – nearly one of every four residents – call Harris County and the surrounding 10-county metro area home.

From 2000 to 2010, Houston gained 400,000 foreign-born residents, more than any other U.S. city except New York. Last year, the county received 4,818 refugees from 40 different countries, the most of any county in Texas.

The newcomers have done more than shift our demographics. They have created a metropolis where one-third of business owners are foreign-born, where the number of Buddhists, Muslims and Hindus has tripled in the last three decades, where more than 100 languages are spoken by students attending Houston public schools.

Even in a nation where the number of immigrants has doubled since 1990, the Houston area stands apart.

So who is helping turn red states blue? 

Four of the six US State Department resettlement contractors working in Houston represent the ‘religious’ Left and are divvying up the large and lucrative flow of refugees to Houston.  From our handy list of contractors changing your towns and cities:

CWS (Church World Service)
TX-CWS-01: Interfaith Ministries For Greater Houston
Address: 3303 Main Street
Houston, TX 77002-9322
Phone: 713-533-4940

DFMS (Episcopal Migration Ministries with its new name change)
TX-DFMS-01: Interfaith Ministries Of Greater Houston
Address: 3303 Main Street
Houston, TX 77002
Phone: 713-533-4940

ECDC (Ethiopian Community Development Council)
TX-ECDC-01: Alliance For Multicultural Community Services
Address: 6440 Hillcroft, Ste 411
Houston, TX 77081
Phone: 713-776-4700

LIRS (Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service)
TX-LIRS-06: Refugee Services Of Texas, Inc
Address: 6065 Hillcroft St, Suite 513
Houston, TX 77081
Phone: 713-644-6224

USCCB (US Conference of Catholic Bishops)
TX-USCCB-07: Catholic Charities
Address: 2900 Louisiana St. Po Box 66508
Houston, TX 77266
Phone: 713 874-6530

USCRI (US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants)
TX-USCRI-01: YMCA International Services
Address: 6300 West Park,Ste 600
Houston, TX 77057-7220
Phone: 713-339-9015

For a little deeper study, I selected Catholic Charities.  The US Conference of Catholic Bishops settles the largest number of refugees in the US and they are also in your pockets for the care of ‘unaccompanied alien children.’

Looking at a recent Form 990 for Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston we learn that they had a gifts and grants flow of $25,525,040 and they fed off the government trough to the tune of $16,463,451.  I also hoped to find the salaries for their key employees but those pages were blank!

What can you do?  Find out exactly what these Houston refugee contractors are telling the feds about the amenities Houston offers refugees by asking for their abstracts—ask for abstracts going back for five consecutive years.  What is an ‘abstract?’ Go here to learn more about this important document.

It is Sunday morning, ask your local Priest if he believes the Catholic Church should be taking millions and millions of dollars from the federal treasury.  Ask if that is Christian charity?

Report from my travels to Minnesota…..getting the attention of the St. Cloud Times!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 25, 2015

Update April 30th:  Don Barnett adds to the discussion with more facts in Letter to the Editor, here.

I’m back in Maryland after spending the last three days touring the state of Minnesota where I experienced an abundance of ‘Minnesota Nice.

Everywhere I traveled with ACT for America chapter leader Deb Anderson I was greeted warmly by citizen activists eager to learn more about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program that has been run secretively for over three decades and is having an especially serious impact on the state of Minnesota.

I had prepared my first-ever power point presentation laying out the facts specifically on Minnesota, and left it with several activists who planned to show it again elsewhere.

St. Cloud dust-up!

Regular readers know that St. Cloud, Minnesota has been in the national spotlight in recent weeks and months as the Somali population there grows and becomes more demanding.  See our extensive St. Cloud archive, here.

So, it is no wonder that the St. Cloud Times, a Left-leaning newspaper, took a special interest in my visit. (Update: Just so you know I did not submit the photo they used!)

By the way, one of the major action points I emphasized in my 4 presentations around the state was that concerned citizens must begin to create some serious alternative media sources to get around the ‘captured’ small city newspapers. (This probably applies to just about every small city newspaper in America!).

The Left (and their greedy friends at the Chamber of Commerce and in big business ie. meatpackers) cannot stand to have the facts about what they are doing reported.   The Left (looking for new Democrat voters), the Chamber and big business don’t give a damn about what they do to your towns.   It is all about power and money!

Free speech is still the greatest weapon at our disposal, please use it!

Reporter Stephanie Dickrell

So, I was pleasantly surprised that reporter Stephanie Dickrell at the St. Cloud Times (sdickrell@stcloudtimes.com) went to so much effort to find the facts and report that my “facts” are essentially true.

But, the most important thing her story did (probably for the first time ever) was to explain to their readers many of the details of how the UN/US State Department refugee program works.

Here is just a bit of what she said:

Ann Corcoran visited St. Cloud on Thursday, speaking at a private event, where media was not permitted, and appearing on KNSI’s Ox In the Afternoon show. She is the editor and founder of Refugee Resettlement Watch and has been involved with the refugee issue since 2007.  [Will link the radio interview as soon as I get it.—ed]

She is also the author of “Refugee Resettlement and the Hijra to America,” available on Amazon and at securefreedom.org.

Her worry is that refugees are being settled around the country using tax dollars and that is part of a larger movement to infiltrate America and promote Islam.

Yup!

Corcoran said people are hesitant to speak up on the issue for fear of being called racist. But she believes residents have a “right to ask” who’s coming, how many are coming, where are they coming from and how much government money is being spent.

Yup!

I couldn’t have been more delighted than to have been personally attacked in a verbal temper tantrum by this man—‘Professor’ Aric Putnam. I wonder does he understand that he is shilling for the Chamber of Commerce and BIG MEAT as they hunger for cheap immigrant labor?

Corcoran’s main argument is that refugees are being brought to U.S. cities using taxpayer money in a secretive manner and without the say of residents. She argues that refugee resettlement should still be performed by private charities.

Once here, she argues, refugees immediately enroll in welfare and other social services.

Yup!

Corcoran also argues that most of these refugees are selected by the United Nations to come to the U.S. and come from “countries that hate us.”

Yup!

LSS of Minnesota’s head honcho actually makes more than what I reported!  Again, what on earth could this CEO do (while being largely paid out of your wallets) that justifies a salary higher than a US Congressman, a Senator or a Supreme Court Justice?

Corcoran claimed 89 percent of LSS is funded by federal and state taxpayers. She said the Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota CEO makes more than $300,000 a year.

The organization’s funding comes from a variety of sources, including congregations, fees people pay for LSS services, local United Ways, private grants, individual contributions, bequests and government contracts for service. From that, 82 percent of its funding comes from government sources, according to Maureen Warren, chief family services officer.  [Ms. Warren and I were likely looking at two different years … but 82% is still outrageous for a so-called Christian charity.—ed]

President/CEO Jodi Harpstead had base compensation of about $267,000 in 2013. With retirement and other compensation added, her total comes to $323,000.

There is much more, read it all.

Personal hit piece on me!

Stephanie Dickrell did a pretty good job on the news report.  But, she (more likely her editors) blew it by also publishing a companion “news” story that should have been published as an Op-Ed by a “professor of rhetoric,” a supposed believer in free speech, that is nothing more than an ad hominem personal attack.

Is that what we teach college students to do these days as they pursue careers in “communication?”

The Professor reviewed a video clip put out by the Center for Security Policy in conjunction with the release of my little book:  ‘Refugee Resettlement and the Hijra to America,’ but the paper fails to link it, so readers can analyze for themselves whether I am promoting a “conspiracy theory” as Mr. Putnam says more than once.

The Professor uses a typical Leftwing tactic of attacking me personally.  This is what they ALWAYS do to silence opposing views.

Watch this clip of ‘Professor’ Putnam of Saint Benedict/Saint John’s University Communications Studies Department talk about preparing “better thinkers.”  Really?

A home run!

Other than the St. Cloud Times editors choosing to publish the personal attack from ‘Professor’ Aric Putnam as news, I’m tickled with it because as one very astute observer noted—-“when you receive flak, you know you are over the target!” 

Reporting like this is meant to shut people up, but it doesn’t work that way on me and it shouldn’t on you!  It should serve as motivation to keep doing what one is doing if it annoys them so much that they go over the top and throw a verbal temper tantrum as ‘Professor’ Putnam does here.

Obama planting migrant seedlings; accelerating seedlings to citizenship status; and refugee food stamp gobblers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 25, 2015

While I was away…..

You probably saw the stories reported over the last few days that provide further proof that the issue of refugee resettlement and the immigrant invasion of America is becoming the focus of national discussion.

Changing America by changing the people! Obama with his architects for a new America Cecilia Munoz (left) and Valerie Jarrett (right)

 

Obama promised to change America and he is doing that by changing the people!

First, Leo Hohmann writing at World Net Daily, in an article entitled:  How to know when migrant gravy train arrives in your town and subtitled:  Feds to ‘strong arm’ cities into welcoming ‘new Americans’:

What are the signs that your community has been secretly selected for an infusion of refugees from Muslim nations like Syria or Somalia, or migrant workers from Central America?

The Obama White House released a report last week on the integration of immigrants and refugees that provides some clues.

It could be something as simple as a new billboard along the highway touting the contributions of diverse immigrant populations and refugees. Or maybe you’ll hear a radio spot or see a TV ad delivering the same type of message.

Your city council may pass a proclamation “celebrating” and “welcoming” the “cultural diversity” and economic benefits of refugees and other “new Americans.”

Your local public library will start hosting “story times” that glorify the role of immigrants and the value of diversity in your community.

You may also see a new HUD-backed subsidized housing project rising from the ground. But the biggest sign that new arrivals are on their way, will be the “messaging” sent out through local media and official government offices.

Please read it all!  Here!  You will recognize the signs where you live!

Obama signing up the migrants and refugees for citizenship by 2016!

J. Christian Adams writing at PJ Media tells us what to expect in a story yesterday entitled: Homeland Security Working Overtime to Add ‘New Americans’ by 2016 Election:

President Obama’s amnesty by edict has always been about adding new Democrats to the voter rolls, and recent action by the Department of Homeland Security provides further proof. Sources at the Department of Homeland Security report to PJ Media that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services is reallocating significant resources away from a computer system — the “Electronic Immigration System” — to sending letters to all 9,000,000 green card holders urging them to naturalize prior to the 2016 election.

This effort is part of the DHS “Task Force on New Americans.”

Astronomical number of refugees on food stamps and SSI—you are feeding the replacement population!

Adding to the plethora of stories while I was away is this Breitbart report on food stamp use by refugees entitled: Memo: 353,000 Refugees on Food Stamps, 55,000 Receiving Supplemental Security Income.   I can’t tell you what a relief it is to know that others in the media are now digging into the facts about the impact refugees resettlement is having on our economy and our communities!

Breibart on this past Thursday:

More than 350,000 refugees in the United States are on food stamps, according the Congressional Research Service (CRS).

In a memo to the Senate Judiciary Committee released Thursday but dated April 14, CRS offers data on Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) — or food stamps — and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) use among refugees. It also provided refugee benefit usage statistics for medical assistance, cash assistance and public housing.

In Fiscal Year 2013, there were about 353,000 refugees on SNAP. As of December 2014, 55,000 refugees, asylees, and other similar populations receiving payments from SSI, the memo reveals.

Readers, please read all three of these excellent reports and it should be clear to you how Obama is changing America, just as he said he would. It is all out in the open now and the question is, how do we stop him from colonizing your towns?

Obama Task Force on “New American” plans to seed your communities to be released today

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 17, 2015

Valerie Jarrett, Cecilia Munoz, and Obama: Changing America by changing the people!

Update April 18th:  Read about what happened here.

Editor:  See our earlier post on this incredibly brazen initiative where they admit they are seeding American towns and cities.  Your town is the soil and you better darn well “welcome” the seedlings!

Also, see what we have said previously about the Migration Policy Institute putting on the shindig today.

The recently convened White House Task Force on New Americans, in a historic first, on April 14 unveiled a report to the President that aims to improve and better coordinate federal strategies that support the successful integration of immigrants into U.S. communities. The delivery of this National Integration Plan represents a major step forward in improving the federal government’s ability to both directly address the linguistic, economic, and civic integration needs of immigrants and refugees, and serve as a resource for state and local governments working to integrate immigrants into their classrooms, workplaces, and communities. Join us for a conversation with the Director of the Domestic Policy Council and Co-Chair of the Task Force on New Americans, Cecilia Muñoz, to discuss the plan’s promise and implementation goals. MPI’s National Center for Immigrant Integration Policy, which has long advocated for creation of a White House Office to provide the “brain circuitry” the federal government needs in order to better understand and address immigrant integration needs, made a series of recommendations to the Task Force, as did a number of organizations that provide services to immigrants or advocate on their behalf. We invite you to join us for this special discussion, and to visit our webpage that provides further information about the Task Force.
Space is extremely limited, so we invite you to RSVP immediately. No registration is necessary to view the livestream.
