I’ve already posted a bunch of stories similar to this one from several different cities in what is an obvious media campaign to blast the President as he approaches his deadline to say how many refugees the US will ‘welcome’ in FY19.
I don’t intend to publish them all because it gets boring, but will note interesting points when I see them.
We have written a lot on Bowling Green, KY over the years.
It is Senator Rand Paul’s home town. In 2011, two Iraqi Muslim refugees were arrested there and ultimately found guilty of attempting to help a terrorist group in Iraq. The arrest resulted in the US State Department temporarily halting resettlement from Iraq and rescreening thousands of potential refugees.
At that point, Senator Paul came out strongly against the program, but his criticism vanished when he ran for President in 2016.
We have so many new readers and I suspect many of you don’t even know that in 2011 two Iraqi refugees living in Bowling Green, KY (Rand Paul’s hometown) were arrested and ultimately convicted of working for al-Qaida in Iraq. I think you can find most of our coverage of the case by typing ‘Kentucky Iraqi terrorists’ into our search window.
LOUISVILLE — An Iraqi refugee and former Bowling Green resident serving a life sentence for federal terror-related offenses testified in federal court Tuesday morning that his former attorney assured him he would get a lesser sentence if he pleaded guilty.
Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, 28, has sought to have his sentence vacated on the grounds that his court-appointed lawyer, James Earhart, was ineffective.
Hammadi pleaded guilty in 2012 to all charges in a 12-count indictment that accused him of attempting, with fellow Iraqi refugee and Bowling Green resident Raad Alwan, to provide weapons, explosives, money and other resources to al-Qaida in Iraq on multiple occasions in 2011.
As Asst. Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration, Anne Richard is the head honcho in the Obama/Kerry State Department responsible for the refugees admitted to the United States.
Tomorrow she isscheduled to testifybefore the House Foreign Relations Committee (Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa). See if your representative is a member of the subcommittee by clicking here.
If your ‘pocket of resistance’is located in one of the districts represented on this subcommittee make sure your Representative knows how important this testimony is to you.
By the way, this reminds me that there is a lot of foot-dragging going on over in the House Judiciary Committee (Goodlatte and Gowdy) which has jurisdiction and a LEGAL requirement to review the President’s Determination for FY2016 that is now already going on 4 weeks old. An oversight hearing had been planned weeks ago on the Refugee Admissions Program—what happened to it? Late last week Ms. Richard was pushing the Syrian resettlement at a college in Kentucky (it is about the children!)
What you see happening here is that the US State Department is sending out big-wigs like Richard to help spread the propaganda (to head off the development of ‘pockets of resistance’) and say that everything is going to be just peachy as we admit 10,000 (or more!) Syrians who cannot be properly screened according to the FBI.
The Obama Administration is going to be having a tough time finding enough “welcoming” communities for Syrians so they must get out to states like Kentucky—we reported that Kentucky had gotten the most Syrians so fartwo weeks into the new fiscal year. Apparently Mitch and Rand are too busy to pay attention to the colonization of Kentucky with Muslim Syrians! (See also first Syrians arrive in KYwith help of Islamic charity.)
Senator Rand Paul’s home town!
See Richard at Western Kentucky University and right under Senator Rand Paul’s nose, hereand here (at the Bowling Green Daily News—Rand Paul’s home town!***). Hat tip: Robin.
And, here she is giving an interviewto NPR this past week. Be sure to see it because the interviewer says thousands of you are sending e-mails to “advocates” opposing the resettlement of more refugees. That must be in reference to the ACT campaign, here.
You really need to know who these people are—-who are working to change America by changing the people. Anne Richard is one of those who moves in and out of government from federal contracting agency and back in to government (and will move back out as an activist advancing mass migration to America). See her bio here.
*** Bowling Green is also the location where the two Iraqi refugee terroristswere doing their ‘work.’ So how does Rand Paul propose to keep America safe if he isn’t watching what is going on in his own backyard!
I know you are saying that isn’t the Senator Rand Paul you know now, but it was the Senator Paul in the wake of the discovery of Iraqi refugee terrorists found in his home town and convicted in Kentucky just a few years ago.
As a matter of fact, I was thrilled! He was the first sitting US Senator I had ever heard speak publicly and critically about the Refugee Resettlement Program of the UN/US State Department.
Here is ourcomplete archive in which we mention Paul’s statements on refugees. Please note that his home town of Bowling Green is completely swamped with refugees and we have a lengthy archive on problems there as well.
Here is what we said in 2013when the Senator was roundly criticized by a Leftwing immigration reporter at the HuffPo. This is what Huffington Post reporter, Elise Foley, quotes Paul saying:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said on Wednesday that the U.S. should be skeptical of accepting refugees, from Iraq in particular, because they take welfare and could plan attacks on American soil.
“It’s one thing to have a big heart and invite people to our country, and if you do it in a small fashion, the churches and the people take care of them, that’s one thing. But like in my town in particular, they bring ’em in and there is someone whose job and expertise is to sign them up for welfare as soon as they get here.”
When we began writing RRW in 2007, one of our first stunning revelations was that Republican guru Grover Norquist was running around Washington lobbying for the US to bring in the Iraqis. 120,000 plus Iraqi refugees later, they are coming in at a rate of 20,000 a year (approximately 68% of them are Muslims split fairly evenly between Shiites and Sunnis).
If you happen to see Paul on the campaign trail, ask him why he dropped his earlier criticism of the refugee resettlement program which is changing American towns and cities under the direction of the United Nations and Obama’s State Department.

Editor: This is another contribution from our premier crime investigator ‘Pungentpeppers.’ Regular followers of RRW know that Bowling Green has long been a hot resettlement site for third world refugees. We have reported on many occasions about what is happening to Senator Rand Paul’s home town ranging from third world refugees being placed in slum buildings and left to themselves to those two Iraqi refugee terrorists caught and convicted there a couple of years ago. (Our lengthy Bowling Green archive is here and our even lengthier archive on Kentucky is here.)
If a Senator can’t even save his home town, how can we expect him to save America?
Bowling Green Interpreter: A Publicity Hound Dog
This story recalls for me an old Elvis Presley hit, “You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog, cryin’ all the time.” Elvis could have been singing about the villain of our piece – an Iraqi interpreter gone bad.
The news usually reports on how Afghan and Iraqi interpreters deserve to come to America – after all, didn’t they help our military in two wars? The U.S. Government though doesn’t seem so gung ho on bringing all of them here; it makes them wait up to four years.
Interpreters are becoming impatient – a group of them staged a protest in front of the U.S. Embassy in Kabul a few months ago. Why the foot dragging? Do Government officials understand something that the ever-trusting American public does not? Although the Government’s reason for the holdup on visas is ostensibly security concerns, there has to be more to it.
Afghanistan and Iraq are traditional, Islamic, and mostly tribal societies. Their people have values, ideals and a way of life that are vastly different from ours. Some of the interpreters were uneducated bazaar boys or vendors who sold wares on the streets – all they understand is their traditional society.
The specter of Bacha Bazi is a concern. Will they respect our laws is another. And how about our women – will they respect them? Per author Diana West who is an expert on Muslim immigration, a horrific rape case, known as “one of the worst in Colorado history”, involved five men who brought with them from Iraq a “new” form of violence.
The final question – relevant to our piece – will they harm our children?Certainly some of the interpreters can bridge the enormous cultural gap and become productive and law-abiding U.S. citizens. But others will do us harm – today’s story is about one of them.
Bowling Green Discovers A Publicity Hound With A Dramatic Flair
An Iraqi interpreter named “Ayoob” received a special interpreter visa and settled in pleasant Bowling Green, Kentucky. This man – who also calls himself “Joe” – shows a narcissistic pride in his appearance. Not shy in front of the press, he has appeared in the Bowling Green Daily News at least three times. You can take a look at his publicity photo here. He’s wearing his trademark head-topper tuft.
Something about Ayoob – or Joe – doesn’t seem quite right. Prone to exaggeration, he resembles a male “Drama Queen”.
In June 2013, Ayoob was featured in one of the Bowling Green Daily News‘s golly gee diversity pieces. The article touted that Bowling Green’s Muslim population comes from more than 20 different countries. By and large, the Muslims interviewed for the piece said they felt at ease in Bowling Green. There was a dissenting voice – that of Ayoob Joe:
Ayoob Akteyarlee worked as an Iraqi interpreter for the U.S. military and is now living in Bowling Green through a Special Immigrant Visa, which was granted to him after he received a number of death threats and several assassination attempts from terrorist groups in Iraq.
Akteyarlee told the Daily News in April he has been the target of racial slurs since coming to the U.S.
“Some people say ‘Go back to your country, you terrorist,’ ” he said. “We served the United States for five years, why are they telling me to go back to my country?”
“I hate that word,” Akteyarlee said about being called a terrorist. “It feels so bad.”
What he alleges, may have happened. Two Iraqi terrorists were, after all, found to be living in Bowling Green, and maybe he ran across a Kentuckian with a grudge. Or perhaps, those Iraqi guys when they hang out together look sort of strange to the locals. I’m sorry his feelings were so badly hurt. But I wonder whether – like a well-known news anchor we’ve been hearing about – Ayoob Joe exaggerated?
He has been driving a car since he was 13 years old in Iraq but never had to get a driver’s license.
Iraqi laws didn’t require drivers to have a license until about two years ago, when new laws were implemented, Iraqi immigrant Ayoob Akteyarlee, 24, said.
Akteyarlee has failed his permit test six times since he’s been in Bowling Green, having taken the test four times in Arabic and twice in English.
On Friday, Akteyarlee and 11 other participants got to review U.S. driving laws, including how to identify traffic signals and traffic signs, right-of-way laws and proper use of lanes, at the National Corvette Museum.
Ayoob Joe couldn’t pass on six tries?! He doesn’t sound very smart. Or, seeking sympathy again, perhaps he exaggerated a bit?
The way Ayoob tells his age is puzzling and gives insight as to his character. For the early February 2013 piece, he told the Daily News he was 24. In an April interview, he said he was 25. That makes sense if someone is born on February 12 – in 1988. However, two unrelated sources give Ayoob’s year of birth as one year earlier – 1987.[Here’s one – link here to ICE hold PDF]
Arabs usually say they are older than they are, because they count the year they are entering (e.g., his “26th year”). Ayoob did the opposite. Maybe he fudged his age. Not a big deal, women do it all of the time. But coming on top of his other odd quirks, I get the uneasy feeling this guy is not to be trusted.
The Fall: “They said you was high classed, well, that was just a lie”
Ayoob enjoyed cruising around Kentucky. He got around enough to find himself a wife. Maybe the bride got “lucky” in that the whole marriage thing blew up so quickly, before Ayoob could do more damage.
The couple married in Warren County, Kentucky, in January 2014. A few months later they were in Austin, Texas. Maybe I’m too suspicious, but did Ayoob find out Texas is a community property state? At any rate, Texas is where Ayoob Joe’s first known mugshot appeared.
He was booked on 4/8/14 for “ASSAULT CAUSES BODILY INJURY FAMILY MEMBER”. That means domestic violence.
A few months later, Ayoob was back in Kentucky. We know this because on 8/1/14 he got himself a new mugshot.
He was picked up as a fugitive from justice and enjoyed a taxpayer-paid stay in the Warren County jail.
On 8/19/14 he was charged with “AGG SEXUAL ASSAULT OF A CHILD”. “AGG” stands for “aggravated”. That’s only part of it. On the Travis County, Texas, criminal case log, it’s described as “continuous”. Per Texas code Sec. 21.02, I take that to mean he is accused of assaulting the victim at least twice, and the child is younger than 14.
According to the case log, his next court date, in Austin, for the two separate cases – domestic assault and sexual assault – will be on February 17. Ayoob Akteyarlee will be 28 – for real.
Will the Bowling Green Daily News report on how Ayoob turned out? They might. Bowling Green has had a stew of diversity crime cases of late.
That hound dog, he “ain’t no friend of mine”!
