After reading my story yesterday about the Canadian doctor who murdered his wife when she wanted a divorce, a reader from Tennessee sent me news from just this week about how domestic violence is part and parcel of Islamic law. This story is not from the Middle East or even from Muslim centers in states like Minnesota […]

Eight years ago it came to our attention in Washington County MD that a non-profit group (Virginia Council of Churches) had been bringing refugees into the city of Hagerstown (county seat) for a couple of years. Some problems arose and citizens started to take an interest and ask questions about how this federal program works. Our local paper had no interest in finding the facts, so we decided to find them ourselves.
One of the many startling things we found out about this very quiet effort is that these non-profit groups bring to the US on average each year 15,000 (FY90-FY03) Muslim refugees from the Middle East, Africa, the Balkans, etc, almost completely funded by the US Government through grants and contracts to these non-government agencies. Of the 168 refugees brought to our county since 2004, 125 are Muslim. Although we all have sympathy for persecuted and suffering people there are real questions to be answered about the wisdom of this policy.
It turns out that there are hotbeds of this refugee resettlement controversy throughout the US. We have identified some of those. Because the issue is much more complicated than we initially realized, we have set up this online community organizing center at https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/ .

Released this week, the Council on American Islamic Relations report contends that over a thousand foundations (listed in the appendix) fund a vast array of organizations who hate Muslims (they say). Of course my first thought was, well who funded this report endorsed by the disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center and who funds CAIR? And, my second thought was that […]
“A school district would never order teachers to ‘welcome’ Catholic students during Easter with ‘He is risen, alleluia!’ Singling out Muslim students for special treatment is blatantly unconstitutional.” – Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund Sharia creep for sure! And, it may be happening in your neighborhood too, but in the Seattle area at least a […]
If you missed the news about the Philadelphia controversy over the Muslim American Society program that featured young children reading aloud about killing Jews and Christians [below], here is one recent report about the on-going investigation. In the wake of that shocking performance we learn, thanks to the Middle East Forum (via Creeping Sharia) hat tip: Michael, that the Muslim American […]
This story has been in my queue for a couple of weeks and am finally getting to it. What is so galling about the news is that our law enforcement has spent time and (our) money to investigate a crime and now incarcerate a man for something that has nothing to do with us. We […]
Several people sent me this story from The Atlantic about a new computer program that is being tested by the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society to determine which American town or city could be the most hospitable to a third worlder arriving in the U.S. I’m posting it just so you know about it and especially for those of you who came […]
As I have said on many previous occasions, I hope the Trump Administration is gathering their successful fraud-busting cases together to use as examples of what the Trump team is doing for us—finding and punishing those ripping off the US taxpayer! At every rally he should be giving an update on how much fraud he […]
“Given such high stakes, and the reports of abuses, the U.S. government might want to reconsider the whole resettlement referral system put in place by UNHCR.” – (Nayla Rush, Center for Immigration Studies) That is the conclusion that Nayla Rush at the Center for Immigration Studies comes to after doing a deep dive into that recent NBC investigation […]
So why is there a virtual media blackout of the story? Oh, there is some media coverage like the bare-bones story about what happened on April 5th, but no interest outside of the early reports from local media. In fact, there is more news about why there isn’t any news on the cable networks and […]
But we don’t have the housing and the resources to care for them, Mayor Lovely Warren said earlier this week! Exactly! And, she thinks America does (in some other city)? The other day I mentioned an idea that apparently is being kicked around in the more-immigration-is-better crowd and that is to turn the asylum seekers (aka illegal […]
Well, if they must be released where else should he release them? Wouldn’t Dems want them sent to ‘welcoming’ cities? In probably the most blatant NIMBY move ever by the Open Borders pushers, CNN was aghast this morning at the idea that Trump would consider such an “inhumane” idea—using children and families as pawns […]
I said I would write about American crooks and criminals from time to time, and so I am with this post. In my previous post I warned readers about jogging or walking alone, and it appears one is in double trouble walking alone while wearing this hat! First, here is the bare bones story from WTOP in Montgomery County, MD thanks […]
The question isn’t what went wrong at the SPLC; it is why it took so long for the rest of the country to learn what local reporters already knew.” – (Jim Tharpe, former managing editor of the Montgomery Advertiser) The problems at the Southern Poverty Law Center could be bigger than discomfort by staff about racism and […]
And, an even bigger shock is that NBC is featuring this lengthy investigation into charges of corruption, fraud and bribery in the agency that selects refugees for your American towns and cities. Featured in what is billed as a first installment of a seven-month-long investigation is Africa and specifically Somali resettlement from the huge camp, Dadaab, run […]
I have to admit I had never heard of Tina Tchen until this past week when we learned she had been brought in to try to clean up (cover up?) the misdeeds at the largest hate group in the country—the Southern Poverty Law Center. (See my story here) So my ears perked up when I heard her […]
