Europe has not yet developed the backbone that Australia has in blocking invasion

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 24, 2015

More ‘Invasion of Europe’ news…..

This is yet one more story about the invasion of Europe and how the continent is bracing for the next onslaught of migrants from North Africa as spring advances, but near the end of the Breitbart piece the answer to the dilemma is clear to all who are willing to see it—the invaders must be blocked as Australia is demonstrating!

European Union countries are bringing the migrants ashore, while Australia sends them back to the country from which they launched (the best way to save lives at sea!). Photo: http://qz.com/350181/the-eu-stands-by-as-thousands-of-migrants-drown-in-the-mediterranean/

From Breitbart (first the same old stuff!):

It is “relatively easy” for jihadists to gain access to the European Union by coming with an influx of refugees, the head of the European Union’s counter-terrorism group has warned.

Although jihadists have to this point seemed to find no difficulty in slipping between Europe and the Islamic State by way of porous eastern borders and Turkey, the enormous volume of humans crossing the Mediterranean every week, and EU-funded efforts to help them, appears to be offering another route of ingress. Counter-terror chief Gilles de Kerchove said: “We must be vigilant. It is relatively easy to enter into the European Union when one joins an influx of refugees”, reports TheLocal.at.

Australia is proving it can be done (a nation can save itself)!

Terrorists entering a nation posing as innocent refugees and applying for asylum is a problem with which Australia has grappled, and solved. A terrorist arrested in February for conspiracy to commit murder by stabbing blonde people in the kidneys with hunting knives arrived in the country by boat using a false passport during the Labor-party era of open borders. The new policy of using the Royal Australian Navy to turn migrant boats away has sent such an effective message to would-be travellers only one boat attempted the journey in the whole of 2014.

Breitbart has been doing a really good job of reporting on the ‘Invasion of Europe.’  Our complete archive on the topic is here.

Midwestern towns trying to cope with large numbers of refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 23, 2015

I’m speechless!  After years of reading one fluffy-puffy piece after another about refugees seeing their first snow, we are beginning to see major mainstream publications (Christian Science Monitor in this case) reporting on the struggle small towns are having with the huge numbers of refugees the US State Department and its contractors*** are dispersing across America.

Pay attention Spartanburg, SC and any other town contemplating “welcoming” refugees!

The NYT might still be hiding the source of the influx by not reporting on the refugee program, but other media is not so deceptive.  By the way, I expect every person who read the NYT story yesterday, scratched their heads and wondered how so many Somalis got here!

From the Christian Science Monitor entitled, ‘For small-town America, new immigrants pose linguistic, cultural challenges:’

In 2012, Burmese children drowned near Marshalltown resettlement site. http://forefugees.com/2012/07/07/three-karenni-children-drown-iowa-river-in-marshalltown-iowa/

 

Marshalltown, Iowa — The voice was frantic – and unintelligible to the 911 dispatcher. “Ma’am, I cannot understand you,” she said. After 80 seconds, one word leapt out: “Riverview.”

On a warm July evening in 2012, while Marshalltown, Iowa, celebrated Independence Day, three refugee children from Myanmar (Burma) drowned in the Iowa River. The drownings at Riverview Park cast a grim light on the challenges facing both the city and its newest immigrants, most of whom spoke little English and had scant understanding of life in their new home – including the perils, known to more established residents, of the river’s treacherous currents. [Where was their resettlement contractor which should have been assimilating the refugees to their new home?–ed]

“Many towns are struggling to cope!”

For two decades, rural communities across the Midwest have been finding ways to absorb Latino immigrants. Now, a new generation of immigrants arriving from far-flung places such as Myanmar, Somalia, Iraq, and West Africa has brought a bewildering variety of cultures and languages. Many towns are struggling to cope.

Again, speechless, a reference to the meatpackers wanting refugee labor (see our 2008 post about Clinton bring Bosnians to Iowa for the meatpackers):

Experts say the changing face of immigration in the rural Midwest reflects stricter federal enforcement. Tighter border security has slowed the influx of immigrants from Latin America entering the United States illegally. Meanwhile, the meatpacking industry has looked to refugees, who enjoy legal status, as a way of avoiding problems with undocumented Hispanic workers.

By the way, they don’t say it here, but due to a Clinton Executive Order that Bush did not rescind, local governments (you the taxpayers!) or any agency getting any federal funding is required to supply interpreters for the myriad languages and dialects the refugees bring to your town!

Much of the difficulty surrounding the new immigration is linguistic. Language barriers complicate services from law enforcement to health care. Ms. Beach recalls a school expulsion hearing that required two interpreters – the first to translate from one dialect of Myanmar to another, the second to translate into English.

See Ten Things your town needs to know before ‘welcoming’ refugees.   See also our archive on ‘Meatpackers changing the face of small town America’ with their insatiable appetite for cheap labor.

NYT: From Minneapolis to ISIS, a refugee’s path to jihad

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 23, 2015

Well, that is not exactly the New York Times Sunday headline, but close.  What they left out of the lengthy story was the ‘R’ word—Refugee.   Most media outlets have gradually (over the seven years we have been observing the issue) begun to use the right word when it fits—not just “immigrants,” but refugees we welcomed to America.  Apparently the New York Times is not yet able to say it.

 

The extremely large number of Somalis in Minnesota are virtually all refugees or the children of refugees brought there over the last 3 decades*** by three US State Department refugee resettlement contractors:  Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services, and World Relief (re-named Arrive Ministries) which is a supposedly ‘Evangelical’ charity.

But they aren’t charities in the way new readers might think they are.  They masquerade as Christian charities, but work for the federal government.

We recently researched the databases and reported that Minnesota has received over 10,000 Somalis in ten years thanks to the federal government and its contractors.  They were dispersed to over 60 towns and cities!   This past week Somali students in St. Cloud protested claiming they are discriminated against at a local high school (just the beginning?).

So, back to the NYT which featured Abdi Nur a Minneapolis refugee who said, ‘s**** the good life, I’m going to be a jihadist.’   His saga and his family’s tale didn’t interest me.  A couple of things did.

Note the manual that ISIS uses to help recruits get to the Middle East—see the word HIJRA (it means migration to advance the Islamic state or the caliphate) and that is what they are doing to America as well. 

What happens when ISIS tells these newbies, stay right where you are, you can advance our cause much more effectively by waging jihad in Minneapolis?  Or, what happens when the feds get very good at stopping the jihadist wannabees from leaving the country and out of frustration they find a means of advancing their Islamic agenda at home?

One other thing that interested me was the graph showing how most of the ISIS recruits from America were from immigrant families.

Here’s Omar!

When Omar Jamal (I call him the Somali Jesse Jackson) gets quoted I know we have some lazy reporting happening! 

So his arrival in this NYT story interested me too:

I’ve been writing about the Somali mouthpiece since 2007.   He really showed himself in 2008 when a Somali was found dead in a hotel in Denver not far from the location of the Democratic National Convention with enough cyanide in his room to kill hundreds.  Jamal convinced authorities there was nothing to see, move along, just a dead nutty Canadian Somali.

Omar Jamal’s usual schtick is to say the family is devastated, they had no idea, they are good Americans (or good Canadians).  How could this happen?

By the way, we were able to discover years ago that Jamal entered the US illegally, was convicted of immigration fraud, but was never deported. Did the feds give him some special role?

Click here to see our archive (pages and pages) on Omar Jamal as he pops up across the country and tells the media—move along, nothing to see, Somalis love America.

 

Be sure to see Jerry Gordon’s post on the NYT story at New English Review.

***See how many Somalis came to America since the 1980’s, here.  See ‘Why so many Somalis in Minneapolis,’ here.

In the latest ‘Invasion of Europe’ news, authorities bracing for onslaught as Mediterranean weather improves

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 22, 2015

African young men make up the bulk of the illegal migrants making the voyage to Europe.

From Reuters at the Times of Malta:

With migration across the Mediterranean surging, the European Union’s largest border operation is bracing for a record year of arrivals by sea, especially as summer brings calm waters between Italy and Libya.

Off the eastern coast of Sicily, the 18-member crew of the Icelandic coast guard vessel Tyr – named after a Nordic god of war – are conducting rescue drills in seas more familiar in Greek mythology, preparing for the worst.

Though the United Nations refugee agency has criticised the mission, known as Triton, because its mandate is not search and rescue but border control with patrols near the Italian coast, the EU border agency Frontex says it is saving lives.

“We participate in a lot of search and rescue operations that take place far from the Italian shore, usually about 40 nautical miles north of Libya,” Frontex spokeswoman Ewa Moncure told Reuters on the bridge of the Tyr yesterday.

[….]

About 170,000 entered the EU through Italy last year by way of the dangerous sea crossing organised by human traffickers, mostly in Libya, while more than 3,000 perished.

During the first two months of this year, arrivals were up 43 per cent versus the same period of 2014.

[….]

The governments of southern EU countries – including Italy, Malta, Greece and Spain – have repeatedly criticised the failure of the 28-nation bloc to devote more attention and resources to the growing immigration crisis. To increase solidarity, the European Commission has said it will present a “migration agenda” in May, when good weather is expected to boost the flow of migrants and refugees, many of whom are fleeing civil war in Syria or forced military conscription in Eritrea.

This might be a good time to read The Camp of the Saints as the 4-decades-old novel is now coming true.  Author Raspail was only wrong on his prediction of where the invaders would launch from.

See our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series here.  Remember that the US State Department takes some of Malta’s illegal aliens to the US as “refugees.”

Obama’s new program to create ‘refugees’ in Central America to be discussed in teleconference later this month

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 22, 2015

These are the train routes taken by the “children” last summer. Obama’s new plan is supposedly designed to keep the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ off the trains and put them into planes (airfare paid by you) with direct flights to cities across America. Map here: http://www.wnd.com/2014/07/mexicans-blame-americans-for-death-train/

 

 

The federal government is inviting you to a teleconference later this month to answer questions about the plan to bring kids directly from Central America to the US as refugees which then (as newly-minted refugees) will have all forms of welfare available to them, can bring family in later and become US citizens.   We told you about it in February.

Note that the media is not invited!

Dear Stakeholder,

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), in coordination with the U.S. Department of State (DOS), invites you to participate in a teleconference on Tuesday, March 31, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. (Eastern) to learn more about the Central American Minors (CAM) Refugee/Parole Program. The program provides certain children in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras with a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children are undertaking to the United States.

 

The CAM program began accepting applications from qualifying parents in the U.S. for their children on December 1, 2014. Only certain qualifying parents who are legally present in the U.S. are eligible to file for their children. Each qualified child must be unmarried, under the age of 21, and residing in El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. In certain cases, the in-country parent of the qualifying child may also qualify for access if the in-country parent is the legal spouse of the qualifying parent in the U.S.

 

During this teleconference, representative from USCIS and DOS will provide an overview of the CAM program and answer questions.

 

To Join the Session by Phone

On the day of the session, please use the information below to join the teleconference.
We recommend that you call 10-15 minutes before the start time.

Toll-free call-in number: 1-888-606-7035

Passcode: CAM

Syrian Muslim refugees headed to Indianapolis: to build Obama seed community?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 21, 2015

This is a really informative news report from reporter Gretchen Frazee at Indiana Public Media.  The story begins with a warm introduction to a Syrian family which has just arrived in Indianapolis with the help of federal resettlement contractor Exodus Refugee Immigration which is a subcontractor of both Church World Service and Episcopal Migration Ministries (two of the big nine contractors).

You can read the warm and fuzzy part yourselves, then this (emphasis is mine):

The U.S. began bringing in Syrian refugees in October and expects to allow in a total of 2,000 by the end of the fiscal year.  [This fiscal year ends September 30th, 2015. Yesterday we learned that the contractors are pushing Obama to raise the ceiling for Syrians.—ed]

One of the pressing questions we have (and most readers concerned for their towns have) is how is a town or city chosen to be the next resettlement site for a group of new refugees.

We are told that one reason Indianapolis was chosen is that the Islamic Society of North America is nearby (ahhhhh!).

Carleen Miller, Executive Director Exodus Refugee Immigration: “This year the number will be small…then their relatives will come and then their relatives will come.”

The State Department normally sends refugees to cities where they have friends or family. But Lababidi and Alhamoud didn’t know anyone in the U.S., so the government used a kind of formula to determine which location had the resources to best meet their needs.  The department determined that place was Indiana.  [I sure would like to see this formula!—ed]

“The main thing is that refugees go to a place that’s welcoming, that has a cost of living they can survive in, that has employment and opportunities,” says Carleen Miller, the executive director of Exodus Refugee Immigration, which is handling Syrian families’ resettlement in Indianapolis.

She points out that the Islamic Society of North America is based just outside of Indianapolis in Plainfield. There is also a mosque which many Syrians attend in Fishers and a group of Christian Syrians at a nearby church.

“There are people who are interested in Syrians in our city, so it makes for a good environment for them to be successful,” Miller says.

Then there is a very long section on security concerns.

Regular readers know that the FBI testified in Congress a few weeks ago that it was virtually impossible to properly screen the Syrians.

Exodus Refugee Immigration has resettled three Syrian refugee families in Indianapolis so far.

Miller calls the process long and arduous.

“The U.S. has the most rigorous screening process where they do at least five security checks on refugees coming into the country,” she says.

Syrians are also receiving additional scrutiny, although State Department officials aren’t saying exactly what that is.

“It’s a hard balance to strike,” says former Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Indiana, who served as chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Select Committee to Investigate Covert Arms Transactions with Iran.

“You want to welcome these people into this country and into the state, but at the same time you want to be careful about it. You want to trust, but you want to verify,” Hamilton says.

The cause for concern and an extra watchful eye is the threat of radicals who might try to enter the U.S. as refugees. Even while most people acknowledge the vast majority of people applying for refugee status are harmless and are in a real need of help, the small possibility of extremists trying to get into the U.S. via refugee status is raising questions.

[….]

“If it’s a very young person, a child, you probably don’t need to follow that person closely,” he says. “An elderly person, likewise. The people you really have to keep your eye on, to be blunt about it, are young men. They’re not exclusively the problem, but they’re the overwhelming part of the problem.”

Oh, yeh, I bet the Islamic Society of North America and CAIR aren’t going to like this!

Hamilton says that’s why police must keep tabs on refugees after they enter the country — often through random checks of the places they frequent, such as the churches or mosques they attend — but he is quick to reiterate that in the overwhelming majority of cases, refugees are hard working people who simply want to make a better life for themselves and their families.  [Definitely keep an eye on those Christian terrorists!—ed]

Spartanburg, SC and every town in America faced with “welcoming” refugees pay attention to this.  Never truer words were said:  Obama seed community will grow!

The U.S. cannot say how many more Syrians might come to Indiana specifically, but service providers are doing their best to prepare because refugee populations tend to build on each other.

“This year the number will be small and it may grow as we get a few families, and then their relatives will come and then their relatives will come,” Miller says.

Read this whole article I’ve only snipped some of the news that interested me.  There is a discussion about refugee mental health and about how the Burmese have overwhelmed Fort Wayne, Indiana—from refugee resettlement and from secondary migration.

Several years ago former Indiana Senator Richard Lugar obtained a GAO Report on the problem of refugee overload to towns and cities and it appears to have been just an exercise in futility as it appears to have been simply thrown down a rat hole.

Go here for our archive on Indiana.  We have published many posts on problems in the state.  We first became aware of those problems when the Health Department in Fort Wayne was overwhelmed with refugee TB cases in 2007.

An afterthought:  Check out the contractors most recent Form 990 here.  They took in $2,120,954 and only $237,255 might have come from non-taxpayer funds (p. 9).  Remember this is a business, it is not funded by passing the plate at church on Sunday!

Refugee resettlement contractor wants Obama to raise the FY2015 ceiling on admission of refugees to bring in large number of Syrians

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 20, 2015

Update March 22nd:  This same Op-Ed is published at the Gulf Times and they have a poll, go there and answer the poll question—should we bring Syrians into the US or not?

This is no surprise to us, the rumblings have been underway for months by others of the nine major US State Department resettlement contractors.  Now comes a Washington Post opinion piece by David Miliband of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to go above the 70,000 refugees we are in the process of admitting from all over the world. (See Hebrew Immigrant Immigrant Aid Society with the same plea for Obama to open the gates to Syrians.)

Hillary yuks it up with David Miliband in 2009. Hillary: “Well, if you saw him it would be a big crush.” http://www.theguardian.com/world/2009/nov/17/hillary-clinton-david-miliband-interview

Doing well by doing good?

For new readers, David Miliband is the former British Foreign Secretary who has moved across the Atlantic to serve as the CEO of the IRC.***  His predecessor pulled down a salary and benefits package of nearly $500,000 to “rescue” poor souls and we expect he didn’t pull up stakes in the UK for less than that.

As we were reminded by the Massachusetts contractor, here just a few days ago, this is a business!   Contractors are paid by the head to resettle refugees in your towns and cities.

Security concerns!

A few weeks ago the FBI testified in Congress that they could not adequately screen the Syrians because there are no records on even who they are.  Of course it begs the question, how did we screen over 100,000 Somalis we have admitted to the US over the last few decades?

Miliband first gives us the guilt trip about how countries in the Middle East are suffering with the arrival of hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees and somehow we need to do our share.  Somehow the fact that we send millions of dollars in aid for the refugees isn’t enough.

And, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees is helping pressure Obama by placing over 10,000 Syrians in a queue for America.

Past experience tells us that once the pipeline is open for permanent resettlement to the US, it will be open for potentially decades even if the civil war wrapped up tomorrow!

Notice that Miliband never says a word about Christians and other religious minorities.  We know that the vast majority of those in the pipeline are Syrian Muslims from UN camps.

Here is Miliband at the Washington Post giving us three things we must do:

First, in light of the dire situation in Syria, it can raise the 70,000 cap specifically to accommodate Syrian refugees over the next two years.

Second, it can ensure that DHS issues needed guidance on “material support” waivers created in 2014, thus avoiding delays and denials to Syrians who have committed no wrongs. [These same contractors successfully lobbied the Administration to lift the material support for terrorism ban, and apparently DHS has never published any regulations.  Some inside the Administration are evidently trying to protect us!—ed]

Third…The United States can expand resettlement options by establishing, through the refugee program, a family reunification mechanism enabling Syrian Americans to bring extended family to safety more quickly.

On this last point, we already have mechanisms in place to bring LEGITIMATE family members to the US—we call it chain migration!

*** The IRC has the largest budget of the nine contractors.  Approximately 73% comes from you:

International Rescue Committee (secular)
(From 2012 Form 990)

Total revenue: $456,122,865
Govt. grants and contracts (including travel loan income): $332,271,151
Percent taxpayer funded: 73%
Top salary: $485,321

Detroit: Despite high unemployment, Lutherans and feds still pouring refugees into the area

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 19, 2015

This starts out as the usual feel-good fluffy-puffy story about a happy Iraqi refugee landing in Detroit, Michigan, but there are some very interesting nuggets of information that appear mid-story.

From the National Journal:

Detroit’s suburbs have absorbed tens of thousands of Iraqi refugees in recent years after violence erupted in the wake of the war. The established Arab community in Detroit has made it the top destination for Iraqi refugees—and that, in turn, has made Michigan one of the states receiving the largest influx of refugees.

Protestors in Dearborn: A large number of Dearborn’s Muslims are on US Terror Watch List. From Jihad Watch http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/08/dearborn-residents-on-terrorist-watch-list-second-only-to-new-york

From 2010 to 2014, Michigan saw a 38 percent increase in the number of refugees moving to the state, according to data from the Health and Human Services Department. The vast majority are fleeing Iraq, where they faced violence and retaliation for working with U.S. troops during the war, like Al Saady, or because they belong to a religious minority. The number of Iraqi refugees arriving in Michigan nearly doubled in the last four years, with 2,751 arriving in 2014.

The growing number of refugees exacerbated the economic strain on Detroit communities as it struggled during the Great Recession. Refugees had trouble finding work, and staff was stretched thin at the social service agencies that help families resettle in the area. In 2008, the State Department started limiting Iraqi resettlement to Detroit to those who had immediate family members there. But many of those Iraqi refugees who have been resettled elsewhere in the years since still end up moving to Detroit anyway, says Mihaela Mitrofan, refugee-resettlement program manager for Lutheran Social Services of Michigan.  [Readers, it is called “secondary migration” in resettlement industry lingo. The Iraqis want to live with their own kind, as do the Somalis that flock to Minnesota, but God forbid you want to live with people you are culturally comfortable with!—ed]

“With everything that’s happening with ISIS, we anticipate another wave of refugees from Iraq and also Syria,” says Mitrofan.

Since the middle of 2007, Lutheran Social Services has resettled more than 8,000 Iraqi refugees in the Detroit area. Christian Iraqis are usually integrated into the large Chaldean community in the northern Detroit suburb of Sterling Heights. Chaldeans are a Catholic minority group in Iraq.  [Christians are only about 22-25% of the Iraqis we resettle.—ed]

Muslim Iraqis, like Al Saady, are usually sent to Dearborn, a suburb just southwest of Detroit that has provided a home for Arab-Americans of Lebanese, Palestinian, Yemeni, and other backgrounds for nearly 100 years. Lutheran Social Services runs a small office on the city’s main drag, above a hookah bar and across the street from a halal grocery store.

Getting them their welfare goodies as per the Obama colonizing plan!

One LSS staff member, Arjwan Khadoori, helped 13 Iraqis resettle in Dearborn this past January. Khadoori tracked down housing, took them to buy groceries, and guided them through the process of registering for Social Security cards, Medicaid, driver’s licenses, and food stamps. Each person also receives $925 in federal cash assistance to help tide them over until they find work.

Another staff member, Jawhar Altahesh, persuades employers to hire the refugees. This can be tough, he says, especially in an area with such high unemployment. Sometimes employers will accuse him of taking away jobs from Americans. Even Arab-American Muslims might not want to hire women or Shiite Muslims.  [By the way, we are bringing an almost equal number of Sunnis and Shiites out of Iraq.—ed]

“I tell them that’s against the law,” says Altahesh, “but it doesn’t matter.”

From November through January, the Dearborn office helped find full-time jobs for 30 of 50 refugees seeking employment in Wayne County.

Michigan received the 4th highest number of refugees in FY2014, here.

Comment worth noting: Since Spartanburg is my home…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 19, 2015

Editor:  We have a special category here we call ‘Comments worth noting’ to showcase comments we believe more readers need to see.  This is a comment in response to ‘Jake’ at our record-breaking post on Spartanburg about the plan by the US State Department to open a resettlement office in the city.  ‘Jake’ said I was “speculating.”  (For the record, I don’t know ‘7Delta,’ but I wish I could say it half as well!)

From ‘7Delta:’

“Compassion has never been a suicide pact.”

 

Since Spartanburg is my home, I’ve done a lot of research into the RRP, including here at this blog. When ‘speculation’ is demonstrated over and over and has written and verbal confirmation from the welcoming communities, international organizations and government offices involved (though it may be presented in convoluted language to control the narrative) speculation looks a lot like facts.

No one wishes to turn away strangers in need, but when that altruistic spirit is being used as a weapon against kind and generous people, it ceases to be about compassion for either the refugee or the community that opens it arms. It becomes something so deceitful, it fails every rational or reasonable test of principled compassion.

The people who would have us believe we’re unkind, uncaring, bad Christians or whatever other disparaging adjective they can wring out of legitimate concern are manipulators. Name calling and deceitful practices meant to silence ‘pockets of resistance’ tells us everything we need to know about the resettlement scheme.

If asking legitimate questions, requiring respectful honest answers without the community organizing tactics and psy-op strategies makes me a pocket of resistance, then I will pay for my own button and wear it proudly. Compassion has never been a suicide pact. Love is not detrimental permissiveness. Charity begins at home.

I care because I care about our own vulnerable citizen population. I care that Spartan High and Dorman don’t have 82 different languages being spoken that we have to provide translators for. I care that assimilation takes precedent over integration and navigation, so a positive experience is provided for the limited number of any people we can aid in becoming successful Americans and for ourselves. I care that those people must want to be American, that their need is real, that our community is the best place for them and that they’ve abided by our laws in truth and in spirit. I care that we will not be expected to cater to them, but that they want to embrace us, while retaining cultural traditions that fit well into the community and our laws. I care that we don’t kill the goose because she was too timid or vain in her own self-image of false goodness that she stuck her neck out to be chopped out. Believe it or not, I care about the refugee being manipulated too.

I’ve learned enough about subversive tactics over the last 8 years or so to fill a book. America must not be fooled again, for if we do not believe what we see with our own eyes, we shall surely perish and that will not be a good thing, no matter what the tiny minority of our population who have maneuvered themselves into power want us to believe. These poor souls will rue the day they believed their own lies. It never fails. History is our friend. Logic and reality still reign and the most loving thing we can do for them, illegal aliens and refugees is to stop them in their tracks now.

Editor’s endnote:  We have published 6,441 posts here at RRW over the last nearly 8 years, so I think we have passed the point where we could legitimately be accused of “speculating.”

Washington Post opinion: Preventing the Fall of Rome

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 17, 2015

I was interested to see this opinion piece titled so provocatively ‘Preventing the Fall of Rome’ by James Stavridis in the Washington Post last Friday.  Then last evening I heard Father Jonathan Morris speaking about the Pope’s new hardline on ISIS on the Neil Cavuto show.

But, couldn’t we say that this Pope with his welcoming blessing of illegal migrants here in July of 2013 helped fuel the ‘Invasion of Europe?’

In 2013 the new Pope welcomed the illegal migrants to Italy on the island of Lampedusa!

And, surely we won’t forget (at least I won’t) Hillary Clinton’s role in the destabilization of Libya, here.

Here is Stavridis (former allied commander of NATO involved in that very same intervention in Libya):

In 1942, Winston Churchill said that Italy was the “soft underbelly” of Europe and directed Allied invasion efforts there. Today, we are seeing flickers of a similar strategy from the Islamic State.

Following the decapitation of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians by radical Islamists professing an allegiance to the Islamic State, the Italian government has begun ramping up efforts to defend its territory from attack. How realistic is this threat? And what should Italy do?

First, we should listen to what the Islamic State has to say : Last year, the group’s propaganda magazine Dabiq featured a cover story headlined “Reflections on the Final Crusade,” which was illustrated with an image of a black jihadist flag flying over St. Peter’s Square. “We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women,” a senior leader of the group was quoted as saying. “If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.” Elsewhere, the magazine exhorted, “Every Muslim should get out of his house, find a crusader and kill him. . . . And the Islamic State will remain until its banner flies over Rome.”

Hyperbolic? Of course. Literally possible? Not in the least.*** But should Europeans take these words into account as they think about the possibility of attacks on their homeland? You bet.

As Graeme Wood pointed out in his smart, historically grounded piece in the Atlantic this month, “What ISIS Really Wants,” there is an underlying medieval impetus to the Islamic State’s rhetoric and actions. Beheadings of innocents, burnings of prisoners, crucifixions, the enslavement and sale of women and children, the literal sacking of cities — all of these connote a desire to play on the international stage as though the Crusades were still occurring. Thus we come to the importance of Rome, perhaps the most potent symbol of all that the Islamic State hates.

Italy is the gateway to Europe!

Just as Churchill saw Italy as a relatively easy gateway to Europe, the Islamic State has geographic, political and symbolic interests in sailing to Italy. We must do all we can to help Italy prepare.  [Like what? Is Obama going to send troops to protect the Pope from Muslims?—ed]

Our complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ series is here.

*** Maybe not with military force, but with the inexorable flow of Muslim migrants into Europe and the squishy multicultural-worshiping so-called European leaders in power now.  They seem to have run out of Churchills haven’t they?
