Actor Clooney: Do as I say, not as I do!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 7, 2017

These super rich Lefty celebrities have no shame!

George Clooney is reportedly moving his young family to his Los Angeles mansion which is deemed safer (from Jihadists) than is his property in the UK or his Italian get-away mansion at Lake Como.

From Breitbart (hat tip: Brenda):

Report: Open Borders Advocate George Clooney Moving Family Back to Trump’s America for ‘Security Reasons’

Actor and immigration activist George Clooney will move to Los Angeles with his wife Amal and newborn twins Ella and Alexander due to security concerns at his England estate, according to a report.

In 2016, Clooney and his wife praise German Chancellor Angela Merkel for her welcome to the migrant invaders (not using those words of course!). Italy as an escape? maybe not so much! http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2016/02/12/george-clooney-praises-merkel-for-migrant-policy-as-he-seeks-greater-seclusion-in-italy/

Life & Style magazine reported last week that the 56-year-old Oscar-winner will move his newly-expanded family to his mansion in Studio City, California, after deeming his 17th century mansion in Sonning, England to be not sufficiently safe for them.

“As soon as Amal found out she was pregnant, he hired former Secret Service agents to assess all his properties and make recommendations for improvement,” an unnamed Clooney “insider” told the magazine. “His mansion in Studio City [Calif.] was deemed the most secure, and it’s within minutes of an LAPD station.”

[….]

In May, British government officials disclosed that 23,000 known jihadi terrorists are believed to be residing in Britain, far more than the 3,000 that had initially been reported.

[….]

In February of last year, the actor met privately with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and praised the German leader’s acceptance of refugees from Syria and other countries. The same month, Clooney told Sky News in an interview that the United States is not doing “enough” to help Syrian refugees, and that 10,000 refugees per year was too low a figure to be admitting into the country.

[….]

In July of last year, a makeshift refugee camp was established in Lake Como after the Swiss government decided to close its southern border with Italy. Dozens of refugees arrived from African and Asian countries were housed in tents close to the Clooneys’ home, with a local tour guide telling the Daily Mail that the refugee camps were a “big problem because of the huge numbers [of refugees] who are arriving all the time.”

Bill Gates woke up and smelled the coffee, any chance Clooney will get it?

A picture worth a thousand words, civil war coming to Europe?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 19, 2017

When I heard the news about the attack on Muslims leaving a mosque in London early this morning, I wondered if it was all ratcheting up, and dare I say, wondered if a real civil war was coming to, not just the UK, but to Europe as well.  It seems it is just a matter of time!

See this image that Voice of Europe put on twitter yesterday:

 

 

As you know, Poland is refusing to take Muslim ‘refugees’ demanded of them by the EU, see here last week.

President Donald Trump will be in Poland on July 6th.

UK paying “refugees” to go home

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 17, 2016

Invasion of Europe news…..

theresa-may

New UK Prime Minister Theresa May: In September she told the UN that the UK would be fortifying its borders.

The British government is paying around $2,400 (in US dollars) for migrants to leave the British Isles and return home.  Needless to say the project is causing a stir now that it is out in the open.

The headline uses the word “refugee” but in fact these are people who are mostly asylum seekers who have not yet been granted asylum and are thus not technically refugees, but, as the article says, they are illegal migrants.

Critics say the plan will encourage more illegal entry because it is an enticement to try to get in (I doubt $2,400 is much of an enticement).

And, I am still a believer in setting up a repatriation fund here in the US because I think it will be less costly in the long run (by not putting them on welfare) and I believe there are legal refugees who either came as asylum seekers or were placed in your cities by the US State Department who are profoundly unhappy and want to go home.  We should help them do so.

The story is at Press TV (Iranian TV) so I found the comments there informative (be sure to check those out). Several readers said if the UK stopped meddling in civil wars in Syria and elsewhere, the UK wouldn’t have the problem. Huh?  So I’m all for trying it!  Let the UK (and the US) stay out of the Middle East, let the Middle East take care of the Middle East! And we can take care of our countries first (America First) and let them kill each other without our help!

From Press TV:

The government of British Prime Minister Theresa May offers refugees £2000 to get them to leave the country, as it’s under mounting pressure to tackle the refugee crisis, a new report says.

The government confirmed that it has been offering £2,000 of taxpayers’ cash to “assist” return payments to each refugee, who accepts to leaves the UK, The Express reported Saturday.

The Home office said a total of 529 people have been paid the money since the government implemented the plan in January this year. It said the money is paid to help those returning to “find somewhere to live, find a job or start a business in their home country.”

According to figures, the UK faces the highest asylum claims since 2004, Home Office officials said.

Continue reading here.

By the way, clearly such a strategy comes with rules—like they can’t come back without some serious penalty!

France’s Marine Le Pen on the UK vote: “springtime of the people”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 24, 2016

And, a “new air” of patriotism.

I’m sure you either stayed up very late or jumped out of bed, like I did, eager to learn the results from the British vote to stay in the European Union or leave, to discover that the “leaves” have won!

 

From left, Northern League leader Matteo Salvini, French far right leader Marine Le Pen and Firebrand Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders attend a press conference on the second day of a 2-day convention of European nationalists, in Milan, Italy, Friday, Jan. 29, 2016. The rally is being billed by organizers as the first congress of the Europe of Nations and Freedom group within the European Parliament, which was formed last year. (AP Photo/Antonio Calanni)

Now, leaders, of what The Guardian wants you to be sure to understand, the FAR-RIGHT, are over the moon!  Longtime readers of RRW surely don’t need a big dissertation from me to explain that this vote was all about immigration and whether countries can choose for themselves who enters and what sort of nation they will be.

I bet a buck that if German Chancellor Angela Merkel had never “welcomed” hordes of mostly Muslims from Africa and the Middle East to invade Europe and then demanded that other countries in the EU take them in when Germany became overwhelmed, this vote would never have come out the way it did. (It might never have been called!)

I hope this sends a resounding message to the American electorate as we learn that a new wave of thousands upon thousands of border crossers are entering the US right now and Obama is pushing for his own flood of mostly Muslim refugees to change America as he promised he would 8 years ago.

Here is what The Guardian is reporting this morning:

Europe’s far-right parties hailed the UK’s vote to leave the European Union as a victory for their own anti-immigrant and anti-EU stance and vowed to push for similar referendums in their own countries.

France’s Front National (FN) saw it as a clear boost for Marine Le Pen’s presidential bid next year and momentum for the party’s anti-Europe and anti-immigration line.

Le Pen told RTL radio: “Like a lot of French people, I’m very happy that the British people held on and made the right choice. What we thought was impossible yesterday has now become possible.”

[….]

The Dutch far-right and anti-immigration leader Geert Wilders called on Friday for a referendum on the Netherlands’ membership of the European Union.

“I think it’s historic,” he told Dutch radio. “I think it could also have huge consequences for the Netherlands and the rest of Europe. Now it’s our turn. I think the Dutch people must now be given the chance to have their say in a referendum.”

[….]

In Germany, Beatrix von Storch, an MEP for rightwing populist party Alternative für Deutschland, who was recently expelled from the Tories’ party group in the European Parliament over her “shooting refugees” comments, welcomed the result.

“The 23 June is a historic day. It is Great Britain’s independence day. The people were asked – and they decided. The European Union as a political union has failed.”

[….]

… the leader of Italy’s far-right Northern League party was swift to celebrate the Brexit outcome. “Hurrah for the courage of free citizens! Heart, head and pride beat lies, threats and blackmail. THANKS UK, now it’s our turn,” said Matteo Salvini, whose popularity has increased in recent years on the back of an anti-EU, anti-immigration platform.

More here.   Check it out and see how many times the reporters use the phrase “far-right”….funny!

I watched CNN’s reporting this morning and Christiane Amanpour was interviewing some FAR-LEFT British pol and he called Le Pen a Nazi.  The international NO Borders agitators are squirming and wetting their pants today, name calling is all they have left. Hey, George Soros you lose! (And, Obama that is two losses for you in two days!)

David Miliband loves Hillary’s smile….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 31, 2016

….And, is the the man who is deciding the future of Montana (and other US states)!

hillary-and-miliband

She has such a “fantastic smile.”

As the CEO of the New York City-based International Rescue Committee (IRC), we learned recently that he will be helping to decide which third world refugees will be seeded in Missoula, Montana through the newest IRC office there.

Miliband is the former British Foreign Secretary who came to NYC a few years ago to take the job (paid nearly a half a million dollars a year) to run the IRC (a US government funded refugee resettlement contractor).

We have an extensive archive on him and have on many previous occasions reported on his warm relationship with Hillary Clinton.  He was the first to call for 65,000 (mostly Muslim) Syrians to be admitted to the US this year, and has since demanded 100,000 this year.

Be sure to see: Miliband says we must embrace “political Islamism.”

Here The Telegraph hints that Miliband might be thinking about heading back to the UK (he is a British citizen) and jumping back into UK politics.

Don’t let the door hit you on the way out!

David Miliband has spoken of his true feelings for the Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton and his affection for her “fantastic smile”.

In an interview with ES Magazine, Mr Miliband opened up about his friendship with the Democratic candidate, as he praised her humor, intelligence and powerful smile.

He said he likes to think of her as “a friend” and that people are always surprised by her.

[….]

“You have to update your politics.”

He indicated he was considering a moved back to Britain admitting he will not be doing his current job

Mr Miliband, who currently heads the International Rescue Committee in New York, suggested he would not do the job “for ever” and indicated he was considering a moved back to Britain.

He also revealed he had been speaking to old Labour colleagues, including Pat McFadden MP, who was sacked by Mr Corbyn fir alleged “disloyalty”.

The article goes on to report that he opposes the UK leaving the EU because he is a hard core globalist.  Globalists believe not only in the free trade of commodities, but in the free movement of cheap laborers as well!

Archbishop of Canterbury: People are afraid, very afraid of mass migration

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 11, 2016

Invasion of Europe news…..

Well, this is refreshing! A major Christian leader somewhere in the world has the nerve to say it while admonishing all of those who link that fear to racism.

Waiting in Calais for passage to the UK

Illegal migrants waiting in Calais for passage to the UK

And, he dares to say this:

‘You can’t say, “God says you must vote this way or that way”.’

So take a lesson US Catholic Bishops, Lutherans, Evangelicals, and the rest of you supposed Christians!

From the Daily Mail:

Britain has a ‘genuine and justified’ fear of mass immigration, the Archbishop of Canterbury declared last night.

The country’s most senior churchman said it was ‘absolutely outrageous’ to dismiss the public’s legitimate concerns as racist.

Archbishop Justin Welby warned: ‘There is a genuine fear. And it is really important that that fear is listened to and addressed.

There have to be resources put in place that address those fears.’

He added: ‘What happens about housing? What happens about jobs? What happens about access to health services?’

Archbishop of Canterbury

Campaign groups last night welcomed his powerful intervention as a ‘marvellous breath of fresh air’. It comes after years in which the liberal Left has attacked those expressing concern about the unprecedented levels of immigration into Britain as bigots.

Archbishop Welby also revealed that the Church would not be taking a position in the EU referendum debate.

He was highly critical of Europe’s response to the refugee crisis, but added: ‘You can’t say, “God says you must vote this way or that way”.’

 

Continue reading here. Unfortunately, Archbishop Welby still thinks the UK should take in more refugees, but I expect his position will change on that too once they come in larger numbers from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

France bans protest march at Calais

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 4, 2016

More Invasion of Europe news….

Not a good idea.  As I see it, these free speech marches serve as a critical valve on the pressure building in communities across Europe. Closing the valve will only cause the steam to build to a level of much greater power—potentially explosive power.

We haven’t mentioned Calais much lately, but if you look back at many previous posts you will see that this encampment of mostly Middle Eastern and African migrants has been growing for years as they press for being allowed to enter the UK where they see the taxpayer-funded ‘services’ more attractive than what is available to them in France.

Pegida in the Netherlands

Here is the latest news from The Local:

The French government has banned public demonstrations in Calais days before the anti-Islam group Pegida had planned to march through the town.

Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve announced the ban on protests “that pose a threat to public order” days before Pegida were hoping to march through Calais.

“I have asked the Pas-de-Calais prefect to proceed with the banning of all protests that have the potential of disrupting public order, no matter who the organizers are,” Cazeneuve said.

The minister said he was referring to all groups who seek “to create tension, division and violence”.

Calais crossing

The northern port town is home to between 4,000 and 6,000 refugees who are living in squalor in a makeshift camp on the edge of town.

Tensions have risen in recent weeks with clashes between migrants desperate to make a bid to get to the UK and the French riot police who block their path.

More here.

Meanwhile….

Germany is building camps with high fences for its trouble-making migrants, it is time for all of the European governments to do the same.

British taxpayer on the hook for about $36,000 for each Syrian refugee admitted

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2015

Invasion of Europe news….

From the Daily Mail:

As well as proving to be the most intractable challenge that Europe has faced for a generation, the current migrant crisis has also revealed the profound consequences of gesture politics.

SYRIAN-REFUGEES_UK

Some of those charming ‘refugees’ the British taxpayer will be caring for? Photo: http://yournewswire.com/the-first-syrian-refugees-of-20000-approved-have-arrived-in-uk/

For we are now told that the cost of every Syrian refugee who comes to Britain will be up to £24,000 each — a year. [Check my math, but I think that is about $36,000 in US dollars.—ed]

These official figures imply a total bill for taxpayers of up to £2 billion for the 20,000 migrants that the Government has pledged to take in here over the next four years.

By their vain grandstanding, some of our EU partners — especially Germany’s Angela Merkel, who has said she would be happy to take 800,000 Syrian migrants in 2015 alone — have made the predicament much worse.

Their promises to open the door mean we are confronted by an unprecedented continental exodus, not just from Syria, but from countries such as Nigeria and Bangladesh.

[….]

The implications of David Cameron’s grand gesture remain shrouded in mystery, because the Home Office has so far refused to give details. We still don’t know how many Syrians have entered Britain, where they are housed, or whether they will stay permanently. The figures about costs only became public because someone at the Home Office leaked the document.

It says the annual cost per Syrian refugee to local councils is estimated to be £8,520 per person. On top of this, central government will be forced to pay £12,700 in benefits and £2,200 for medical care.

The likelihood is the real cost will be higher. Not only is it likely that family members of the original 20,000 will subsequently be allowed here, but the initial figure will not include a host of ancillary costs.

For example, because many refugees are likely to have post-traumatic conditions that will place a new burden on the overstretched mental health services of the NHS. None of this, however, has prevented liberal critics from denouncing the Prime Minister’s gesture as insufficiently generous.

Muslim Brotherhood affiliated charity, Islamic Relief, says UK must step up Syrian resettlement

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 6, 2015

Invasion of Europe news…..

And, you can bet they would scream bloody murder if the Cameron government ever had the guts to put persecuted Christians at the head of the line.

BTW, Islamic Relief is working in the US to help Syrians get resettled in your states—Kentucky and Maryland that we know of (so far).

I wanted to learn more about the new UK Director of Islamic Relief, Imran Madden.  I didn’t find much, but am posting this 2012 Al Jazeera interview I found informative…..a bit off-topic!

 

 

Here is the surprising (not!) news from Islamic Relief (UK must dramatically accelerate Syrian resettlement):

The new UK Director of Islamic Relief will use his speech in a fringe debate at the Conservative Party conference in Manchester to urge the Government to inject greater urgency into resettling Syrian refugees in the UK and leave ‘no diplomatic stone unturned’ in the search for a lasting peace in Syria.

At a conference fringe debate organised by Islamic Relief and World Vision (details in Notes to Editors along with details of separate Muslim Charities Forum fringe event), Imran Madden will speak alongside the Minister of State for International Development, Desmond Swayne MP, to highlight the enormous human cost of forgotten crises around the world – and the Syrian conflict in particular.

They recommend 5 prescriptions for the crisis, this is #5:

A dramatic acceleration of planned refugee resettlement in the UK.

Related:  First Syrians headed to Northern Ireland, here.  They will be mostly Muslims as the UK is working with the UNHCR to pick its refugees.

About the video (and maybe too much in the weeds for most readers!):   I’ve been following the Rohingya refugee issue for nearly eight years.  In the most recent years, the reason for the original outbreak in the latest wave of violence in Burma (Myanmar) which broke out when three Rohingya Muslim men raped a Buddhist woman, has been long forgotten.  I have been so annoyed over the years to see that original spark for the latest violence between the ethnic groups expunged from media coverage. The media and humanitarian agitators (including the OIC) have made it look like the Rohingya were pure as the driven snow.

I was thus surprised to see this 2012 Al Jazeera piece (an interview with Imran Madden) that actually does mention the rape that started it all.

For Hillary watchers out there, one of the few foreign policy success stories that Hillary was earlier mentioning was supposedly bringing some democracy to Burma. She even sent the ‘Podesta Group’ there to help shore-up her legacy.  Dead silence now as Burma is still in internal conflict.

If you are interested in the Rohingya issue we have enough posts here that you could write a book (see Rohingya Reports category).

Scottish first minister changes her mind about inviting Syrians to share her home

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 28, 2015

Invasion of Europe news……

No surprise is it!  A lot of political big shots as well as Lefties in the entertainment business bragged in recent months that they would invite Syrian families to live in their homes.  Now that Syrians are actually on the way (in this case to the UK) there is much backtracking on that obviously politically motivated promise of just a few weeks ago.

Case in point is this story about Nicola Sturgeon, first minister of Scotland and head of the Scottish National Party.

Let me be clear!  Anyone who is willing to open their home to indigent people and use their own private resources to care for them is to be greatly commended.  However, and this is a driving force behind my writing, stealing money (yes stealing!) from taxpayers to fund one’s charitable endeavors is an abomination in my view.

Why should some struggling family, with two parents working to just get ahead, have to be taxed so some rich big shot do-gooders can don their white hats of humanitarianism and pat themselves on their backs for being charitable?

And, I find it shameful that this Pope and his US Bishops are also stealing from taxpayers to fund their faux ‘Christian charity.’

The Pope has invited one Christian Syrian family to live at the Vatican—big deal!

Here is the story at the Daily Mail (but I see it reported lots of other places as well).  Emphasis below is mine:

Nicola Sturgeon was accused of backtracking last night after it was revealed she had ‘no plans’ to let Syrian refugees live in her home despite promising to do so during a television interview.

The Scottish First Minister made national headlines after she claimed she would be ‘absolutely happy’ to open her home to people fleeing war and violence in the Middle East.

But as the first of the 20,000 Syrian refugees due to come to Britain by 2020 arrived on Tuesday, Ms Sturgeon said she would not be offering them the chance to stay at her home.

Her spokesman said: ‘She said she would be willing to do it if that’s what it took, but she did not say that there were any plans for that to happen. So if you’re phoning to find out if there’s an update, then there is no update.’

Asked in an interview on Sky News on September 6 if she would house Syrian refugees in her own home, Ms Sturgeon replied: ‘Yes, I would.

[….]

Thousands of people have offered to house refugees in their homes in recent weeks, among them Live Aid founder Bob Geldof, politician Yvette Cooper and actress Emma Thompson.

[….]

Scottish Conservative MSP Murdo Fraser said: ‘This just demonstrates the dangers of politicians making glib promises to get favourable headlines, when they have no intention of delivering. First Nicola said she’d welcome a refugee family to her home, obviously for political gain.

‘Now she is quite clearly back-tracking. It is very insincere indeed, but this is what we’ve come to expect from the SNP. The public now see they’re a party that will say anything for a headline, then when it doesn’t suit them, they do the complete opposite.’

Continue reading here.

By the way, since the UK is going to rely on the UNHCR to pick their Syrian refugees, the vast majority will be Sunni Muslim Syrians that inhabit UN camps in Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon.  Christian Syrians, we are told, do not go to these camps out of fear for their safety.

Inhabitants of those camps (in Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon) will not be permanent residents with citizenship, however, all those coming to the US, the UK, Canada, etc. will become voting citizens of our western countries.
