Lack of transparency got citizens steamed in Rutland, VT in the first place

Vermont citizens, who are not happy that they were blindsided by their mayor who quietly invited 100 Syrians to resettle in the small city, have succeeded in getting enough signatures on a petition to bring the issue before voters…but get this!
The mayor says he isn’t sure he will put it on the ballot!  I don’t know enough about Vermont election laws, but I do know a bit about the secrecy surrounding refugee resettlement in almost any city in America where refugees are resettled or where the feds are targeting next, and I know that time and time again arrogant politicians thumb their noses at voters (at their peril!) and that the paid federal contractors sneak refugees into towns with only refugee advocates in on the plan.

Vermont meeting
Stacie Blake (right) representing the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (the major federal refugee contractor working in VT) attempts to place blame on citizens with concerns—that they are sending an ‘unwelcoming’ message to immigrants. This is however, your fault Ms. Blake because your organization chose to proceed with this plan and willfully kept information from citizens for months! It is about secrecy coming from Washington, not about the refugees themselves!

From WAMC Public Radio:

Some residents in the city of Rutland were blindsided when the mayor and the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program announced in April that 100 Syrian and Iraqi refugees would be coming to the city in October. Now, a petition seeking to put the issue before voters has been validated.

Concerned citizens have appeared repeatedly before the Board of Aldermen seeking information on the resettlement plan. But little information has been made public. A group called Rutland First circulated a petition and collected more than 1,200 signatures asking the mayor and Board of Aldermen to put a proposition before the voters.


Despite the demand that the refugee resettlement plan be placed before city voters, Mayor Christopher Louras has been quoted that he’s “not inclined at this time to put it on the ballot.” Calls to the mayor were not returned.

Have you been noticing a trend?  Small town newspapers (owned by big media corporations) are skewing stories to put concerned citizens in the worst light, while there appears to be some efforts still going on at TV and radio stations to give a more balanced report on the latest news about immigration/refugees.

The following cities are ones that are newly targeted.  There could be many more, but these are the ones we have reported on so far (in addition to Rutland): Reno, NV, Ithaca, NY, Missoula, MT, Charleston, WV, and Fayetteville, AR.  Again, I believe there are dozens more. Let me know if you suspect something is up where you live!

Idaho: Obama appointed US Attorney attempts to stifle free speech relating to sex assault case

Update June 28th: More legal experts BLAST Olson, here.
Update June 27th:  Legal expert weighs in with why Olson is wrong, here.
And, she says “the spread of falsehoods about refugees divides our communities.”
Ms. Olson! the placement (in secrecy) of third world refugees in towns that do not want them divides communities!

Wendy Olson
Wendy Olson, US Attorney for Idaho, steps into sexual assault media controversy, fanning the flames even further!

See the latest in the ever growing and expanding controversy from Twin Falls, Idaho about the Sudanese and Iraqi boys who were charged with sexually assaulting a little girl in their apartment complex laundry room over three weeks ago.
We would not be talking about this now if vigilant Idaho citizens hadn’t demanded transparency and action from authorities there.
Frankly, if authorities had been forthcoming in the first place, the so-called rumors would not have gotten legs.
Here is Leo Hohmann with the latest news at World Net Daily (I am quoted in the story about Olson’s clear threat to infringe on the free speech rights of individuals and the media!):

The Obama-appointed U.S. attorney for Idaho has taken the highly unusual step of intervening in a local criminal case involving an alleged sexual assault by juvenile Muslim migrants and threatened the community and media with federal prosecution if they “spread false information or inflammatory statements about the perpetrators.”

WND and other news outlets have reported on the case involving three juvenile boys, two from Sudan and one from Iraq, who allegedly sexually assaulted a 5-year-old special-needs girl in the laundry room of the Fawnbrook Apartments in Twin Falls, Idaho.

Here is a small portion of what Eric Holder’s pick for Idaho US Attorney said in her press release of late last week.  This is a very clear attempt to silence anyone anywhere (not just in Twin Falls) who might speak critically about our refugee admissions policy.

“The spread of false information or inflammatory or threatening statements about the perpetrators or the crime itself reduces public safety and may violate federal law. We have seen time and again that the spread of falsehoods about refugees divides our communities. I urge all citizens and residents to allow Mr. Loebs and Chief Kingsbury and their teams to do their jobs.”

You must continue reading to learn about Olson’s pro-refugee, pro-Muslim bias on display in the run-up to the Idaho trial of an Uzbek refugee on terror charges just last year (he was found guilty btw).  She fretted in advance of the trial and held a meeting with refugee and Muslim advocates to be sure that they were ready for an anti-Muslim backlash in the state during the trial.

Why was it so important for everyone on the pro-refugee side to keep this story under wraps?

It is because the resettlement contractors, the businesses looking for cheap labor, the Leftists looking for more Democrat voters, invested small town elected officials, and naive do-gooders have spent years building an image of refugees as angelic people. Some may be wonderful, deserving immigrants, but some definitely are not!  Because they are so invested in the myth (in the story they have created), any case like this that exposes the lie must be hidden from public view.
How many more cases are out there like the one in the Twin Falls laundry room that have been kept sealed from public view, or dropped altogether through out America?  This makes you wonder doesn’t it!
BTW, her future as Idaho’s US Attorney depends on whether Hillary or Trump win in November.  Remember that!
