It is Sunday morning and if you are a Lutheran you need to have a talk with your pastor—ask what is being done in the name of your faith in Washington.
Here we learn that Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) helped put on a two day lobbying initiative in Washington. Did they do it on your dime?
Before you read on, have a look at the most recently available Form 990 for LIRS. They took in $48,392,082 in gifts and grants and $46,414,735 (p.9) was from GOVERNMENT GRANTS (TAXPAYER DOLLARS!)—that is 96% funded by you. They have at least six employees in the six-figure salary range! See LIRS ritzy Inner Harbor of Baltimore headquarters, here. Hereis the news from Washington:
On October 26–27, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) brought together over 30 Lutheran bishops, pastors, service partners, and leaders for the annual Lutheran Immigration Leadership Summit (LILS). This event draws leaders who commit themselves and their communities to the mission of welcoming migrants and refugees. This year, LILS focused on welcoming refugees in the midst of the global refugee crisis.
Advocacy Training Day
LILS kicked off with a day of in-depth advocacy training led by noteworthy experts and advocates. LIRS staff prepared participants to call on Congress and the Administration to champion positive refugee resettlement legislation, protect families by rejecting the practice of family detention, and invest in robust resources for refugees. The day drew to a close with a dinner reception that included remarks from Robert Carey, Director for the Office of Refugee Resettlement, who praised and inspired LILS participants for their dedicated work. [By the way, Carey came to his government job from a VPs perch at another federal refugee contractor, International Rescue Committee. They keep it (the flow of your money) all in the family!—ed]
….and delivered petitions from thousands of Lutherans asking for the resettlement of more Syrian refugees.
More hereif you can stand it!
No where is it reported that they make all those millions of dollars from resettling refugees where they are paid by the head (by the US State Department) to do it.
Nor is it mentioned that 97% of the Syrians resettled in the US so far are Sunni Muslims. We are not saving the Syrian Christians because the UNHCR is picking our refugees and he told an audience in Washington recently (we were there) that Syrian Christians are not being persecuted and are not in need of protection (I kid you not!).
***Update*** If Christian Syrians aren’t being persecuted why are hundreds of them in Jordan being taken care of by one priest, here. Therefore….LIRS is lobbying for Syrian Muslims to be resettled in your towns. Go here to see where LIRS works. Is your city one of their targets?

Sweden’s migration minister warned refugees that if they don’t find their own accommodation, they will be deported back to Germany or Denmark. The news comes as Europe’s refugee influx had depleted IKEA’s stockpiles of beds.
The Swedish government told media on Friday that it will no longer be able to provide housing for refugees and migrants arriving in the country, despite Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson’s claims that the migration crisis is not putting “acute” pressure on public finances.
“Those who come here may be met by the message that we can’t arrange housing for them,” Migration Minister Morgan Johansson told reporters. “Either you’ll have to arrange it yourself, or you have to go back to Germany or Denmark again.”
Europe’s refugee crisis has been dubbed the worst since WWII, with tens of thousands of people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East and North Africa in hopes of starting a new life in Europe.
Amid the climbing number of refugees coming to Sweden, IKEA has announced that it is running extremely low on beds and mattresses in both Sweden and Germany.
Got beds? Any bed and mattress entrepreneurs out there? Here is your chance to cash-in on the refugee crisis (as many others are) and make a killing! But, first find out if RT’s reporting is accurate.

We have seen lots of Germans take to the streets throughout the country to protest the (mostly Muslim) migrant invasion, but this is the first time I’ve seen one in the capital.
The anti-mass migration Alternativ für Deutschland (AfD) party held a rally in the German capital Berlin this afternoon, demanding the resignation of Chancellor Angela Merkel and calling for the country to adopt a strong policy on immigration.
The AfD has seen its popularity surge as Germany struggles to deal with the huge influx of migrants, and is currently campaigning in local elections in the Saxony-Anhalt region that will be seen as an indicator of public sentiment on the issue.
German paper Handelsblatt estimates that 5,000 people joined the rally this afternoon, calling for the immediate closure of Germany’s borders and introduction of Visa requirements from migrants from the Balkan states, including Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro.
Angry demonstrators chanted “Merkel must go” and “traitor to the people” under the banner “Asylum has its limits – red card for Merkel”.

The Liberal government intends to honour its promise to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees to Canada over the course of the next seven weeks, says newly-appointed Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship John McCallum.
“It certainly remains our objective to get them here by the end of the year,” said McCallum during an interview on CBC News Network’s Power & Politics Friday.
“Military bases are a possibility… air transport… even naval transport has not been ruled out.”
“It’s a large amount of work to do in a very short time,” he said.
There is more, here. By the way, the previous government (Harper) had said Canada would take 10,000over the course of the next year.
For our America readers, be prepared, Obama isn’t going to like being upstaged! Every one of you must continue to pound your elected officials in Washington (I know they are weak), but they seem to be the only thing standing between us and a mass invasion from the Middle East. World ‘leaders’ are going mad!
