One of our readers alerted me to this excellent interview on Newsmax TV of Brigitte Gabriel, ACT for America president and founder, who discusses the refugee resettlement crisis that America faces on the Steve Malzberg show with guest host Dennis Michael Lynch.
Many of our readers are familiar with the work of Dennis Michael Lynch because he traveled around the country a few years ago with his shocking documentary film ‘They come to America.’
Watch the interview below. The working group she mentions is here.
Merkel is calling on Russia and the United States to do something!
German Chancellor Angela Merkel is busy these days casting about to save herself (and keep the EU from imploding!) in the wake of criticism that she and Germany began the stampede of migrants from, not just Syria, but from throughout the Middle East and North Africa as well.
BTW, the mostly economic migrants (not legitimate refugees!) themselves began the practice of calling Merkel “Mama”here.
Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović puts the blame where it belongs—on ‘Mama.’ Anyone with half a brain could see the pile-up comingas Germany first opened its borders and then abruptly closed them.
From The Telegraph(hat tip: Kurt):
Angela Merkel is responsible for the current refugee crisis in Europe, the president of Croatia has claimed.
In unusually blunt and undiplomatic language, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović accused Mrs Merkel of causing “chaos”.
“Mrs Merkel called them, and now she’s pulled the handbrake by saying Germany cannot absorb all these economic migrants,” Mrs Grabar-Kitarović told Croatian television.
“She makes out as if she wasn’t aware that pulling the handbrake when so many cars were on the road would cause chaos. This needs to be resolved now.”
Croatia has been struggling to cope with the influx of thousands of refugees since Hungary closed its border to them last week.
Most are trying to find a new route to Germany since the route through Hungary became impassable.
In August, as other countries turned them away, Mrs Merkel pledged that Germany would take in Syrian refugees.
But as German cities quickly ran out of places in refugee shelters, her government reimposed border controls nine days ago.
HereMerkel is calling on Russia and the US. What are we supposed to do, other than destroy ISIS and it looks like Russia is going to beat us to that (Obama is in no rush)?
And, here she is at Deutsche Welle calling for a “fair” distribution of the migrants (the vast majority are NOT Syrians). You can imagine the outrage in those smaller, formerly Eastern European bloc, countries (like Croatia) that didn’t invite the migrants to Europe, as did Merkel, apparently driven by wanting Germany to look generous and “welcoming.”
This line is buried at the end of the Deutsche Welle article:
Opposition Left party deputy group leader Sahra Wagenknecht said Germany’s poor, not its wealthy elite, would be hit by diversion of monies to fund the integration of refugees.
Here, Hungarian Prime Minister Orban rejects Merkel’s “moral imperialism.”

You can see live updates of the crisis, hereat The Guardian. Go here for our complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ news which we have been reporting FOR YEARS. How could European leaders not have acted before now? More on the German mess, here.
2016 Presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz has joined Donald Trump and Ben Carson***in expressing alarm about the Obama Administration plans to begin a large scale movement of Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees to your towns and cities. However, he has gone one step further and has written to key players in the decision-making process and wants answers to many of the questions we have.
Remember that the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest will be holding a hearingon the Obama Administration’s Determination for FY2016 that has as of this writing declared that we would be taking 10,000 (or more) Syrians to become permanent residents and ultimately citizens of the US starting a week from today. Senator Cruz is a member ofthat subcommittee.
Here is his press release yesterday on the matter:
Sen. Cruz: The Refugee Flow Out of Syria Must Be Treated as a National Security Risk
Sends letter to department heads requesting information on policies admitting Syrian refugees to the U.S.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today sent a letter to Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, Secretary of State John Kerry, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey. In his letter, Sen. Cruz acknowledges the need to address the humanitarian crisis in the region, but also shares grave concerns regarding the Administration’s intent to import tens of thousands of individuals from Syria and elsewhere who have not been properly vetted for ties to ISIS, al Qaeda, al Nusra and other radical Islamic terrorist groups.
“In the current threat environment – with an Administration that seems more intent on responding to the interests of the world than the needs of the American people– Congress has an obligation to be vocal and, if necessary, resist this effort. To be clear, this has nothing to do with immigration policy and everything to do with national security. Congress needs much more information before we can allow the United States to engage in a process that could wind up spending taxpayer dollars to import terrorism, much less fund that process,” Sen. Cruz wrote.
I urge all of you to read his 6-page letter addressed to Secretary of State John Kerry and to the heads of the Justice Department, Homeland Security Department and the FBI seeking detailed information on how this decision was made and especially on the security screening practices used that would assure the safety of the American people.
I’m going to be checking to see if the Senate hearing, a week from today, will be live-screened and will let you know. Get involved!
Is your US Senator on the Subcommittee? Go here and have a look. If so, you need to express your concern about Obama’s plan which could see your town (go here for cities that have already begun receiving mostly Muslim Syrians) become a resettlement site for refugees from the Middle East. By the way, see Daniel Greenfield yesterday—best way to assure we don’t get terrorists, halt Muslim immigration to America!
And, don’t forget the on-going grassroots campaign, here, to halt funds in the CR (Continuing Resolution) for the resettlement of Syrian refugees.
***Does anyone know of any other 2016 Presidential candidates besides Trump, Carson and Cruz who have made their position clear on NOT admitting (or going cautiously on admitting) Syrian refugees at this time?
Oh, and by the way, Carson’s comment on Sunday that a Muslim should not be President of the US has actually raised his percentage points in one new poll I saw last evening (he is still in second place behind Trump) and he reportedly has reaped a windfall of campaign contributions. Here is CNN (Syrian refugees could bring terrorists):
Washington (CNN)Ben Carson said the U.S. should be cautious when taking in Syrian refugees to avoid the risk of terrorists entering the country.
Carson, who grew up in poor in inner-city Detroit before becoming a successful neurosurgeon, said the U.S. should focus on helping Americans citizens first.
“We need to be dealing with that before we start bringing in a bunch of other people,” he said. “Why don’t we ever think about putting Americans first?”
This is the same logical theme we hear all the time when someone is first informed about the Refugee Admissions Program of the UN/US State Department. Put Americans first!
