I had been wondering why a series of older guest posts written by one of our readers was jumping to the top of our list of most-read posts this week, and now I know. Watching Gretajust now I learned that the US military is coming under fire for supposedly telling our men in Afghanistan to ignore the fact that our Afghan allies are abusing young boys (considered a cultural practice).
If you have never heard of Bacha Bazi I urge you to read the four part series by reader ‘Pungentpeppers’ posted earlier this year. You might actually start with the 4th post in the series(and then follow links to numbers 1, 2, and 3). The 4th is entitled:
Bacha Bazi and Islam: Devilish Deception, The Mullah’s Response, and Beyond Heaven’s Pearly Gates
Please follow the links back to the previous posts. ‘Pungentpeppers’ wrote the series because the horrific practice is entering the US and Australia (elsewhere?) with the Afghan refugees. Here is a note from me at the time:
This is the 4th in a series of guest posts by ‘Pungentpeppers’ about Bacha Bazi, the Afghan pedophile practice targeting boys that has made its way to the West (including possibly to the US). Go here,here, and here to see the previous reports. Part II (Australia grapples with Bacha Bazi compulsive predators) was our top post last week.
One more in a long list of reasons why diversity is not so beautiful.
‘CR’ is Washington, DC lingo for the ‘Continuing Resolution’ on the fiscal year funding that keeps the government open after the first day of October. Because the slugs we have elected to Congress are unable year after year to accomplish a timely appropriations process, the ‘CR’ is now part of our everyday language.
Citizens concerned about the massive influx of not-thoroughly-screened Syrian refugees are seeking a provision in the CR to prevent the White House from going forward with its plan to resettle 10,000 (or more!) Syrians starting next Thursday. The CR is expected to go to the House floor in about a week. (September 30th is the deadline for getting it done).
Here at Numbers(USA) is the text of a fax you can send to your Member of Congress and US Senators on the issue:
Your Three Members Street Address City, StateZip
Dear Your Three Members,
Please make sure that the continuing resolution contains a provision that prevents the United States from resettling Syrians. The FBI is adamant that it is impossible to determine if such an action would pose a security risk. I hope you will do all you can to make sure the CR prevents the government from resettling Syrians.
The White House has floated plans to resettle 10,000 Syrians and some Members of Congress are pushing for the government to resettle up to 100,000. With the FBI unable to determine if those Syrians wishing to relocate to the United States pose a security risk, it would be foolhardy and dangerous for the U.S. to place these individuals in our communities.
The continuing resolution must contain language to prevent the White House from resettling more Syrians to the United States. Actions which pose a security risk must be carefully considered and must not be taken on the basis of emotion or politics.

And, here is Jim Simpson writing at American Thinker on the campaign launched yesterday:
With its usual stupidity, Congressional leadership has evaded the appropriations process and will attempt to avoid a government shutdown by passing a continuing resolution (CR) prior to the start of the fiscal year. That is 10 days away.
We hereby demand Congress insert a one-line provision in the CR:
No funding shall be provided for bringing Syrians into the U.S. under any program.
I urge you to call the GOP House and Senate Appropriations Committees, their Chairmen and members, House and Senate leadership, and your GOP reps and senators. Unfortunately the Democrats have already boldly signaled their contempt for America. They are a lost cause.
If you live in a state where one of these members (scroll down) resides, be sure to call that member in every single one of his/her offices. Also you can find the contact information for your own reps and senators here:
Please go to American Thinker (scroll down) for all of the contact information you will need. Readers ask me all the time, what can I do? This is something you can do NOW!
And, remember, the refugee contractors, No borders groups, Muslim activist groups and assorted hard Left (Social Justice!) community organizers arehard at workbecause they want to bring in 200,000 total refugees, 100,000 Syrians (to your towns and cities), during this coming year. You need to work harder!
Yesterday, someone sent me a link to a news story that reported that some small town in Michigan was going to ‘welcome’ 4,500 Syrians in the coming year. Sounded preposterous to me, but it did spur me on to do something I’ve wanted to do for the last week and that is find out exactly what towns and cities were already getting Syrian refugees.
However, if your city is not on the list below it does not mean that you are off the hook.
Go to the US State Department’s list of subcontractors working in 190 towns and cities,here, to see if you have a US State Department contractor set up in your town.
I would also urge all of you to go to the contact information for an office near you (in that list ) and ask for the Fiscal Year 2016 Abstract.
Those abstractswill tell you how many refugees the agency plans to resettle, from where they will come, and what your town is offering them in the way of social services and other amenities.
The FY2016 Abstracts are now in the hands of the US State Department which has already made its decisions (or how else would Sec. of State Kerry be able to say that we can handle 85,000 refugees this coming year) and the contractor should not be withholding them on some flimsy grounds that they are somehow still in the decision-making process. Do not be surprised, however, if they refuse to give you the abstract because secrecy is a watchword of this program and has been for decades! I can’t emphasize enough that if they can’t find enough ‘welcoming’ locations, they will be out scouting for more unsuspecting towns. ‘Pockets of Resistance’are forming and if you would like to be linked up with fellow concerned citizens,sign up here at the Center for Security Policy and someone will be in touch with you.
1,709 Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees have been resettled in the US between 1/1/2012 and yesterday.
95% are Muslims
When I looked up the cities where they were distributed, I rechecked the numbers of Muslims vs. Christians we were resettling and the percentage is still about the same—95% since 2012 are (Sunni) Muslims and 97% in calendar year 2015 are Muslims.And, that is because we allow the United Nations to choose our refugees! Here then are the towns/cities where those 1,709 Syrians have been resettled (some may only have received one Syrian so far, but that one should be considered a seed). Someone got these few: 43 Christians, 1 Catholic and 1 Yazidi resettled so far. Again, we are not saving the persecuted Christians in any significant way! Top Syrian Muslim receiving states are in red.
Arizona (Glendale, Phoenix, Tucson)
California (Burbank, Chatsworth, El Cajon, Fair Oaks, Los Angeles, Modesto, Moorpark, Oakland, Pasadena, Plumas Lake, Sacramento, Salinas, San Diego, Santa Ana, Turlock, Van Nuys, Walnut Creek, West Covina)
Colorado (Colorado Springs, Denver)
Connecticut (Bristol, Hartford, New Haven, West Haven)
The House and Senate Judiciary Committees have jurisdiction over the matter. Senator Grassley has spoken out strongly, but so far not a peep out of Chairman Goodlatte and Subcommittee Chairman Trey Gowdy*** over in the House.
Here is Senator Sessions’s excellent statement yesterday:
CHAIRMAN SESSIONS CHALLENGES ADMINISTRATION OVER PLANNED RESETTLEMENT OF 200,000 REFUGEES IN U.S.
WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Chairman of the Senate’s Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, responded today to the announcement from Secretary John Kerry that the U.S would increase its intake of refugees over the next two years to nearly 200,000, in addition to the existing annual resettlement of asylees, illegal border-crossers, foreign workers, and global green card recipients:
“The U.S. has already taken in four times more immigrants than any other nation on Earth. Our foreign-born population share is set to break every known historical record. Since 9/11, we have permanently resettled approximately 1.5 million migrants from Muslim nations inside the U.S. Ninety percent of recent refugees from the Middle East living in our country are receiving food stamps and approximately 70 percent are receiving free healthcare and cash welfare. All of the nearly 200,000 refugees the Administration is planning to bring over the next two years would be entitled to these same benefits the moment they arrive. Since we are running huge deficits, every penny of these billions in costs will have to be borrowed and added to the debt. This refugee expansion would be in addition to the 1 million autopilot green cards handed out each year by the government to mostly low-wage migrants, including a large share from Middle Eastern nations.
“Our schools, job markets and public resources are already stretched too thin. And, even at current rates, we have no capacity to screen for extremist ideology, as we have seen with the surge of ISIS recruitment in Minnesota’s Somali refugee community.
“Middle Eastern nations must take the lead in resettling their region’s refugees. The goal of responsible refugee resettlement should be to relocate displaced persons as close to their homes as possible and to seek their return to their country of origin in more stable conditions. It has also been reported that 3 in 4 of those seeking relocation from the Middle East are not refugees but economic migrants from many countries.
“At bottom, it is not a sound policy to respond to the myriad problems in the Middle East by encouraging millions to abandon their home. Absorbing the region’s migrants is not a long-term strategy for stabilizing the region; instead, we should look soberly at our most recent actions in Libya, Syria, Iraq and elsewhere while encouraging migrant populations to remain in the region where they can contribute to social and political reforms.”
*** Perhaps I am reading too much into this, but it seems thatGowdy is supporting Marco Rubio’s bid for the Presidency and most of us can’t get past Senator Rubio’s championing of the Gang of Eight amnesty bill over in the Senate two years ago. Gowdy is also reportedly close to Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), also a Gang of Eight member, who does support the President’s bid to bring in thousands of Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees to America.
We’ve been telling you lately about the Refugee Council USA (RCUSA) which is a consortium of groups comprised of many ‘NO borders groups, quasi-religious groups, and some of the nine major federal resettlement contractorspaid by you to resettle refugees.
These nine contractors are also calling the shots on which towns and cities will “welcome” the “seedlings” (aka refugees). It sure looks like the US State Dept. is lead around by the nose by these supposed non-profit groups.
RCUSA is the lobby shop that originally spurred theSenate Jihad Caucusto write to Obama and ask for 65,000 Syrians (mostly Muslims) to be admitted to the US this coming year (fiscal year 2016 starts in 9 days).
Not satisfied with demanding 65,000, they recently upped the number to 100,000 Syrians and sent a letter to Obama (we told you about it here a few days ago).
You need to see the letter here! Below are the national signatories to the letter, but still see the letter for those who signed on in your state.
They have a Congressional Visit toolkit!
The Refugee Council USA (surely they aren’t using your tax dollars to prepare lobbying kits?) also has a Congressional lobbying kit available at their website. See it byclicking here. We were pleased to see that we have received a shout-out in the kit!
Here is what they say about RRW:
Utilizing anti-immigrant and anti-Muslilm sentiment, individuals who oppose refugee resettlement are making their voices heard louder and more frequently to policy makers. Groups like Refugee Resettlement Watchand similar local groups are calling for an end to refugee resettlement altogether, moratoriums on arrivals to their areas, and fostering unwelcoming atmospheres for newcomers. It is critical that policy makers at local, state and national levels hear from refugees themselves and community members who support refugee resettlement, so they can ask questions, learn more about the importance of resettlement, support positive legislation and oppose proposals that would harm refugees.
Be prepared, wherever you are, for the contractors, who are always looking for more refugees to resettle (again, they are paid by the head), to be using poor refugees as pawnsin their political game and bringing them out to meetings as poster children for their efforts to change your town by changing the people. Have sympathy for the refugees because most don’t understand the game. It is the Leftwing organizers/contractors who are working against America that deserve your criticism.
Now, look at the list of groupswho signed the letter to Obama demanding 200,000 total refugees for FY2016 with 100,000 of them being Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees! Yikes, they even have Hamas/CAIR on their team! The federal contractors are in red.
What! No US Conference of Catholic Bishops? Other Catholic groups are listed but contractor USCCB isn’t? And, where is World Relief (one of the nine contractors)? Are they wising up? Didn’t want their names associated with some of these Muslim and hard core Leftwing groups?
