“Advocacy” is code for Lobbying as Lutheran federal refugee contractor advertises for DC office

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 29, 2016

We have told you about this on previous occasions over the years, but it bears repeating! The nine major federal resettlement contracting agencies, that like to call themselves VOLAGs (Voluntary agencies! Ha! Ha!), have lobbyists in Washington to not only protect their flow of federal dollars, but to promote their Open Borders agenda.

And, that means not just “advocating” for more refugees, but all of the contractors have worked on past initiatives by Congress for so-called ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform.’

lirs-building

This is where LIRS is headquartered and a few years ago I got this description from their website: The Lutheran Center (LIRS headquarters) is a six-story structure constructed in 1999 on property owned by Baltimore’s historic Christ Lutheran Church. The building is located near Baltimore’s Inner Harbor in the historic Federal Hill neighborhood, a charming area rich with history and an eclectic array of eateries and shopping venues. (Congress gives them your money to keep the whole thing going!)

Wouldn’t you think that agencies like the Lutherans here would not want the country flooded with illegals-made-legal while they were charged with finding work for their tens of thousands of legal refugees?

I don’t want to wander back into the weeds of the Gang of Eight bill that passed the Senate, but the refugee contractors were in the thick of it (lobbying for its passage) because if it had become law, they would have gotten more paid “clients” that they would help get signed up for welfare, job training, medicaid, etc.

I meant to make this quick and I will.  Check out Gates of Vienna (GoV) blog here (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum) discussing the job announcement for a DIRECTOR OF ADVOCACY.

That is ‘fancy-schmancy’ language which simply means—-LOBBYIST.

O.K. fine, they can have a lobbyist too, but the big question is this—-are you paying for their lobbyist???

Their advertisement says this:

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) is a national faith-based organization with a 77-year history, a budget of approximately $58 million per year, and over 100 headquarters staff.

BTW, that headquarters is in a very nice building at the posh Inner Harbor in Baltimore.

And GoV wonders how much of the $58 million is your money.  I can answer that because I just analyzed LIRS finances last month, here.

From the most recent available Form 990 (2014) we learned this:

Total revenue for that year was $59,862,898

Total federal grants were $55,341,275

And, they also received from your money $1,817,755 for a loan service fee.

95% of their income comes from you—-the taxpayer!

Without the money that CONGRESS appropriates to them they would dry up and blow away!

DEFUND!!!

The only power you have right now to try to slow the juggernaut is if you can persuade your Representatives in Washington (your Congressman and US Senators) to DEFUND the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program on the FY2017 Budget that Congress must pass by December 9th.

We have no taxpayer-funded lobbyists working for us. In fact there is NO lobbyist working exclusively on our side—the side that wants to slow the flow—of the refugee issue.

Frankly, if you don’t even try to do this then you can keep complaining (in comments to me and on social media) about the program until America is gone!

Why do you think LIRS needs a Director of ADVOCACY in Washington DC? Because they get it—they know that Congress holds the purse strings!  Your money is their lifeblood!

Endnote: for all of you having problems with a Lutheran resettlement contractor in your state, this Baltimore-headquartered Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is their mothership!

American Thinker: Trump sees the Trojan Horse

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 26, 2016

battle_of_vienna_1

Actually the Ottoman Turks (the Muslims) were ultimately defeated at the Gates of Vienna in 1683. Polish Hussars, pictured here, pushed the Turks back on SEPTEMBER 11-12, 1683 freeing the Austrians and sparing Germany. Gates of Vienna blog posted a good report on what happened here a few years ago: http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2006/09/other-september-11th.html Unfortunately, the Muslims are back today as so-called “refugees” being welcomed to take Europe without a fight.

There is a good article about the Hijra by Ted Belman at American Thinker yesterday. Here are the opening paragraphs:

 

Ever wonder why there are so many Muslims and Muslim countries in the world? Over the millennia many countries were conquered, but didn’t remain Persian or Greek or Roman as the case may be. You see, the countries conquered in the name of Islam, became and remained Islamic. For example Pakistan, part of India, and Malaysia both were Hindu; Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Egypt and N. Africa were Christian; Afghanistan was Buddhist. They are all Islamic now.

This transformation was not by chance but by design. All these countries were conquered by force then shorn of their wealth and many of their women. Then the Muslim conquerors introduced Sharia and continued fighting the local inhabitants. The inhabitants were either forced to convert or accorded Dhimmi status. As time went on all cultures submitted and eventually became Islamic.

The advance of Islam was finally reversed in Spain and stopped at the Gates of Vienna in 1642 [Not sure about 1642, here is the final battle in 1683. More here—ed]. Thereafter the power of Islam went into decline but other than Spain, it never lost its hold on the people it conquered. This decline was reversed in the Twentieth Century when Arabs became wealthy as a result of their vast oil reserves. This wealth was then deployed to conquer the west, not by Violent Jihad, but by Stealth Jihad.

This design was referred to as The Islamic Doctrine.

Continue reading here.

The Islamists know and understand their history better than we do!  I bet they are laughing their heads off about the success they are having invading Europe today!  Interesting isn’t it that Poland is one of the few European countries that ‘gets it’ and isn’t inviting in the Muslim ‘refugees.’

BTW, we have a category here at RRW for years called ‘Stealth Jihad.’  Check it out sometime.

Gates of Vienna reports on refugees and Spartanburg, SC in particular

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 6, 2015

I love their masthead! Learn more about the last great (failed!) effort by the Turks (the Muslims) to capture Europe: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Vienna

Update: This post has been corrected from its earlier version—I was too much in a hurry to read carefully!  Here is the link to the interview with Dr. Jeffrey.

Dymphna at Gates of Vienna has posted today (oops! it was yesterday) on the Refugee Resettlement Program (‘Refugees come in under the radar’) and wanted readers to listen to a radio interview with Dr. Christina Jeffrey of Spartanburg, SC.  Thanks to reader Jim for the alert.  Maybe you can contact the Andrea Shea King Show for a podcast.

For background, here is a link to our original report on the Spartanburg, SC controversy with updates.

By the way, all of you should add Gates of Vienna to your daily reading list!

People with high IQ’s are destroying Western Civilization by embracing the “deadly ideology of multiculturalism”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 9, 2013

Baron Bodissey, at one of our favorite blogs, Gates of Vienna (hat tip: Richard Falknor at Blue Ridge Forum) posted a refreshingly heretical piece yesterday in which he first discusses the treatment of the Heritage Foundation’s recently let-go (shamefully by the very same Heritage Foundation) Jason Richwine because he dared to write a Phd thesis on race and IQ, and then associate himself with a report on how the Gang of Eight’s amnesty bill will hurt the American economy.

An aside:  I’ve had this news kicking around in my posting queue for a few days where researchers have discovered that there is an ethnic difference in immune response to TB.  I don’t see anyone having a hissy-fit over the possible genetic correlation of race and how one’s body deals with Tuberculosis, yet all hell breaks loose over the issue of racial differences in IQ.

The questions Bodissey raises are ones that underlie much of what we discuss here at RRW on a daily basis as we report on real life stories that demonstrate how stupid we really are.

In Bodissey’s piece (after his lead-in about Richwine and academic studies on IQ and race) he goes on to suggest that people with high IQs are really very stupid (excepting the Chinese and Japanese) and poses this question (emphasis below is mine):

Is IQ a useful measure of intelligence, as expressed by an entire culture?

My contention is that it is not.

The two dominant racial groups in Western culture — Caucasians of European descent and Ashkenazi Jews — contrived the deadly ideology that is now known as Multiculturalism. They received no measurable assistance in this project from black Africans, or Arabs, or Trobriand Islanders. The Chinese and the Japanese, who seem to have put their high IQ scores to better use, have foregone the pleasures of Multiculturalism. This pernicious ideology is entirely the work of Caucasian and Jewish academics.

Through its implementation of the Multicultural ideal, the West is manifestly in the process of destroying itself. Within a few decades the European nation-states will no longer exist. We may already have passed the point of no return. With full deliberation we, the white race, prepared this cultural apocalypse. It was not the races with lesser IQs who did this to us; we did it to ourselves.

Some people have difficulty accepting this conclusion, and ascribe our current disaster to the manipulations of the Bilderberg Group, or an international Jewish conspiracy, or the Freemasons, or the Illuminati, or some other secret cabal that has somehow manipulated the well-meaning citizens of the West into signing up for their own doom.

But this only pushes the problem to a new level: how can some of the most intelligent people on the planet be so easily manipulated into doing such stupid things? The Chinese and the Japanese — who are also intelligent — have up until now failed to fall for this scam. Why have Westerners succumbed? [The Japanese may still succumb—the UN and the human rights industrial complex have been putting pressure on the Japanese to welcome diversity as readers of RRW know—ed]

[….]

What does intelligence mean, if intelligent people deliberately and methodically collaborate in their own destruction?

Given the cataclysm currently faced by Western Civilization, the concept of intelligence as measured by IQ seems to have little remaining empirical utility.

Please read the whole thing, there is a lot to think about.

One commenter, Aaron, suggests it’s not all whites and Jews who are to blame, just those with a Leftist ideological world view.  Yes, maybe, but then one wonders how come Rightwingers (Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Grover Norquist, etc.) have fallen for the concept of a multicultural nirvana that flooding America with immigrants is supposed to bring.

I don’t really wonder!  The only nirvana most of that bunch is concerned with involves cold hard campaign cash—Western Civilization be damned.  Norquist is another matter.

(Muslim) asylum-seeking hunger strikers: We want the right to stay in Vienna…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 22, 2013

….and get a free education and be able to move around where ever we want.  Oh, and no deportation for those who failed to qualify as refugees in Austria.

This story is over ten-days-old and has been kicking around in my posting queue for over a week and just now I couldn’t find a follow-up—did they starve to death or did the Austrian government cave in?  Although, not exactly breaking news now,  it’s an interesting story when coupled with another report from the excellent international blog–-Gates of Vienna—on Vienna.

Here is the hunger strike story from Deutsche Welle (emphasis mine):

 Political refugees in Vienna are starving themselves to protest against poor living conditions. The Austrian government wants the protest to end as soon as possible – but it seems there’s no end in sight.

In the dark, neo-gothic Votive Church near Vienna’s city center, weak winter sunlight filters through stained glass windows and illuminates the mattresses and blankets jammed into a corner. More than a dozen young men lie in the jumble of bedding.

“We got families,” says one of the protesters. “We got situations that people just don’t understand. We gotta make a change. We gotta make people understand.”

The protesters say they will starve themselves to death unless the Austrian government changes its refugee policy. They marched on the church from a refugee center 20 kilometers outside of Vienna. They say conditions there are overcrowded, that they receive only 150 euros a month ($198) on which to live and that many of them will spend years in these cramped quarters, sometimes with young families. Muhamed Numan, a 24-year-old from Pakistan, defines the group’s goals.

The two tall spires of the chalk-colored Votive Church dominate the cityscape of Vienna. (Photo: Votava / dpa) Vienna’s Votive Church has guards at the doors to protect refugees.

“The first is asylum,” he says. “The second is free education. The third is freedom of movement.”

They also want to stop the deportation of those who have been refused refugee status, as well as to erase refugee fingerprint records. The Austrian government says it is not prepared to meet those demands.

Austrians: no patience for those who bite the hand that feeds them!

 “These demands, like the right to stay for everyone, like the erasing of finger-prints … lack any legal basis and don’t come anywhere near meeting EU regulations,” said Austrian interior minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner.

Austrian Freedom Party MP Norbert Hofer also believes that the asylum seekers’ message will not be well received in Austria.

“People have no time for someone who comes to Austria seeking protection and then starts demonstrating,” Hofer said. “In Austria we have done a lot. Between 2005 and 2010 alone we spent a billion euros on asylum provision.”

But, of course Mr. Hofer, they don’t care how much you’ve done in the past, the point is to bring Austria and all of Europe to its knees economically and culturally.

And, look who is here!  The Catholic Church supporting the Muslim ‘asylum seekers.’   What else is new!

The protesters are backed by aid agencies and NGOs, which have been criticizing the government’s asylum policies for years. They claim that accommodation for refugees is overcrowded and that the burden of care falls mainly on charities like the Catholic aid agency Caritas.  [I say let the Catholic Church use its vast resources for its chosen “charity.”   It is not the role of government to do so!—ed]

Think about it!  Over 300 years ago, at the Gates of Vienna, Christians turned back the Muslim armies about to over-run Vienna and march through the gates of Europe, and it’s today’s Catholic Church helping Muslims conquer Christendom now.

Refugee camp squatters were earlier evicted near Vienna

There is more here about a camp previously disrupted by the Austrian government.  Readers, we are seeing these camps all over Europe (here in Germany and here in Holland).   See also Greece, here.  These are not spontaneous and disconnected events, they mean to bring down Europe in our lifetimes.  The Islamists know history!

Demographic change has already come to Vienna!

Now, please visit “Babul on the Danube” at Gates of Vienna (a blog you should visit daily*):

Barely any students with German as mother tongue in Vienna

The nationwide statistics conceals the dramatic developments in Vienna, because German is hardly spoken in the primary schools of the federal capital. The district in Vienna where this is most blatantly visible is Margareten, where the proportion of immigrant children has risen to 89 % — that is, 924 out of 1038 children have as their mother tongue something other than German.
