I’ve been having computer problems so this is going to be a quickie update on the “dumb” Australia refugee deal that we should never have entered in to with the Australian government. In January of 2017, Trump should have said NO! to the outrageous Obama arrangement for us to take off the Australians’ hands 1,250 […]

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/ .

That is the question a young opinion writer asks and answers (in the affirmative of course!) in the wake of Wednesday’s Supreme Court hearing on the President’s travel ban. The long opinion piece in Deseret News by writer Gillian Friedman evoked a largely negative response by readers. I especially got a chuckle out of this comment: I’ve snipped the following segments, […]
If this is true, then nearly 1/3 of all refugee resettlement offices have closed around the country. Really? And, if this is true, why has the Refugee Processing Center (Wrapsnet) not deleted any of the contact information for those now supposedly non-existent agencies from its database, or updated their resettlement site map? What are we paying them […]
“I saw first-hand the flagrant abuses and scams that permeate the refugee program.” – Mary Doetsch, retired Foreign Service Officer Will President Donald Trump and soon-to-be Secretary of State Pompeo, do what must be done and overhaul the USRAP? Mary Doetsch is a retired U.S. State Department Foreign Service officer who spent eight years (of a […]
Don’t go Donald! The city now exceeds NYC in violent crime because of the (immigrant/refugee) diversity welcomed by the UK! Stay home and make a point of mayor’s increasingly violent city. From the Huffington Post: Donald Trump Should Expect ‘Loud’ Protests If He Visits The UK, Sadiq Khan London Mayor Warns Donald Trump should expect loud and peaceful […]
However, perhaps more interesting is the lack of mention of the arrested man’s name, a critical omission in the first St. Cloud Times version of the story. Apparently, only after a local radio station posts his pic and names him, did the politically correct St. Cloud Times bother to report that vital information. Mayor welcomes Somalis, so why would […]
We have now reached the six month mark of the first full fiscal year of the Trump presidency and Trump could easily break the Bush record set in 2002 of 27,070 refugee admissions for one year. (See post here on the Bush record low years.) At the six month mark, the Trump Administration operating well under a CEILING […]
Thousands gathered in London’s Hyde Park, at the famed “Speakers Corner” to hear jailed Austrian patriot and freedom fighter, Martin Sellner’s speech read by Tommy Robinson. Sellner was blocked from entry into the UK because of his political views. Raheem Kassam reports here at Breitbart. A reader suggested I post Sellner’s full speech, good idea! Everyone who […]
…..and not for the first time! Diversity is Beautiful alert! There are no photos of the brawl that I could find. But, don’t miss the story about a student being assaulted at the same school yesterday because he was carrying a Trump flag across the street from the ‘peace’ walkout. Yesterday this brief news item was brought […]
The whole Rainbow Nation myth is going down the tubes as whites are persecuted but Leftists, including the Obamas, can’t let the myth die! Increasingly news is coming out of South Africa that white farmers are being murdered in ever greater numbers and the government there has made the first moves toward confiscating their prime […]
Invasion of Europe….. Can we expect an apology from The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, and the rest of the anti-Trump media about his Sweden comments last year? Don’t hold your breath! Powerline blog reminds us here of what happened a year ago February when the New York Times and all of its media lackeys […]
And, it all started when Twitter banned Jared Taylor and American Renaissance from its platform. Breitbart has a long report on the case. I think Taylor has a good case, but you know how our court system has become (too often these days) the place where Leftwing ideology has found its home and Constitutional protections are lost, so I won’t […]
I told you about it here, but I’ve noticed over the last 24 hours that the story about Trump’s refugee policies being blamed for closure of NON-PROFIT GROUP offices is all over the media. Let me be clear! The blame rests squarely on the design of the US Refugee Admissions Program (and Congress) which has shoveled so […]
That is what Breitbart’s Michael Patrick Leahy is reporting about his efforts to get an answer from the major funding source for the nine federal contractors*** hired by State for the US Refugee Admissions Program. Leahy’s story is entitled: U.S. Government Continues to Fund Refugee Resettlement NGO Whose Funding Has Been Frozen by the U.K. (We reported […]
“We’ve never seen a cut of this size and also a cut of this impact.” – Hans Van de Weerd an executive at the International Rescue Committee. The slated closures, which are being reviewed by the State Department for final approval, follow President Donald Trump’s decision to dramatically reduce the number of refugees that will […]
