Where Was Amy Klobuchar That Day? (a Cross-post from Frauds and Crooks)

That would be the day the FBI and the National Counterterrorism Center went to the Senate Homeland Security Committee to testify about potential Islamic radicalization in her home state of Minnesota!

I don’t know how many readers at RRW also read my other blog ‘Frauds and Crooks’ where I have a category entitled: Politicians as frauds.

If you didn’t see my post yesterday about Amy Klobuchar, please go have a look. Hint! It has to do with Somali refugees who left Minnesota to get their jihad training in Somalia.

Birds of a feather? Senator and Presidential candidate Klobuchar with Senator Tammie Baldwin and fellow Minnesotan, Rep. Ilhan Omar having a good laugh!

 

 

 

World Relief and ‘Evangelical’ Group Send Misleading Letters to 15 Governors

Sometimes ‘Christians’ don’t tell the whole truth!

Yesterday I reported on the Religious Left’s ongoing campaign to pressure governors to oppose the President on one of the President’s most important 2016 campaign promises—to reduce the flow of ‘refugees’ from around the globe to your towns.

The Christian Post alerted us to a series of letters to governors of 15 states in which one of the nine federal resettlement contractors***, World Relief, teamed up with a Far Left religious extremist activist group connected to George Soros—the Evangelical Immigration Table.  See also here.

Scott Arbeiter is the President of World Relief which received $43 million in federal grants and contracts in 2018. 67% of its entire budget is taxpayer funded.

You can find the letters here, see if your governor got one, but even more importantly see if you can identify those who signed the deceptive letter in your state!

The Tennessee-based Dailyrollcall.com noted a common talking point (found in the boiler-plate letters) that the contractors and their friends often cite—they claim no refugee has killed an American in an act of terrorism (on our soil).  LOL! See how they use weasel words!

In 2010 a Somali refugee was arrested (he got 30 years) for planning to bomb the Portland, OR Christmas tree lighting ceremony. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.org/2010/11/30/oregon-christmas-tree-bomber-was-a-refugee/

Well, they sure as hell tried!

What they don’t tell you is that many were apprehended before they accomplished the deed, others tried and failed, and many others committed some heinous crimes.

(I just checked my crimes category and see that I have over 2,000 posts about refugee crimes archived here.)

What do these three featured by the Dailyrollcall.com have in common?

Yup! Refugees who killed people on American soil.

This is what Dailyrollcall.com said about them and the so-called Tennessee evangelicals:

Religious moralizing by Tennessee evangelicals doesn’t cut it either. In a cleverly worded letter to Governor Lee they state that “since the Refugee Act of 1980, no refugee resettled to the U.S. has taken a single American life in an act of terrorism.”

According to these compassionate Christians, it’s not good enough that the victim(s) attacked is severely injured; they have to actually die and it has to be labeled “terrorism” for it to matter.

Two years ago, Sudanese refugee Emanuel Samson, shot up a church in Nashville, killing Melanie Crow and injuring seven other worshippers.

In 2011, Omar Mohamed Kalmio, a Minnesota Somali refugee, murdered 4 people in North Dakota. This was after he and a group of Somali men had knife attacked a man in Minneapolis five years earlier.

In 2008 Esar Met, a Burmese Muslim refugee raped and murdered a young Burmese Christian refugee girl in Salt Lake City.

Much more here.

And here is the letter that World Relief  (Form 990 here) and the ‘Evangelical’ Immigration Table sent to Republican Governor Lee.   Be sure to find your state letter here.  Find out who in your state is working to change America by changing the people.

***For new readers these (below) are the nine federally-funded refugee contractors that monopolize all refugee placement in America.  For decades they have decided in secrecy where to place refugees and they don’t want to lose that power because even as they pontificate about their religious convictions and humanitarian zeal, they are Leftwing political groups working to change America by changing the people and using your money to do it!

 

Here (below) are the over 600 who signed the Tennessee letter to Republican Governor Lee.

True evangelicals will quickly notice that large numbers of those who signed are not evangelicals.

I’m wondering if you Tennesseans know these political activists who are asking your Republican governor to oppose President Trump.  I’m betting that these are all hardcore Democrats, so why would a Republican governor listen to them?

Let me know if you see any on this list who are fans of the President and America First.   And, is your church listed?

Republican Governors All Talk No Action (Memory Lane!)

Do you remember this headline only four short years ago?  Probably not.  I hadn’t, although I surely wrote about it at the time.  It was right after one of those horrible Islamic terrorist attacks in Europe and it woke from slumber some Republican governors for a few minutes.

30 Governors Call For Halt To U.S. Resettlement Of Syrian Refugees

My how things have changed.

They talked tough then (mostly because Obama was in office and they knew they had no voice), but now when the President has actually presented them with an opportunity to put up or shut up and go on record saying NO to more refugees from the Middle East and elsewhere, well now they are worried about their “workforce” and they tuck their tails and run fearing they will be perceived as mean and unwelcoming by the Dems.

Here is a very cool graphic from NPR at the time.

 

Nothing has changed by the way!  We bring fewer Syrians these days, but the vast majority of Syrians who do come are Muslims.

And, not just Syrians, but Iraqis, Somalis, Burmese Rohingya and literally tens of thousands of Afghans.

The vetting can’t really be improved because as Senator Marco Rubio said at the time:

“There is no background-check system in the world that allows us to find that out, because who do you call in Syria to background-check them?”

That same common sense applies to most places in the Middle East, Asia and Africa—who you gonna call?

Although I should be writing on all sorts of things on this subject, not to mention that my other blogFrauds and Crooks’ is suffering from lack of attention, I found myself rummaging around Wrapsnet (the Refugee Processing Center) and holy cow!

Four years: 19,514 Syrians!

In the 4 years since NPR posted their story (from November 17, 2015 to today December 11, 2019) we admitted 19,514 Syrians—19,514!  19,195 of those are Muslims!

Although most of those came as Obama was leaving town, 6,413 of the Syrian Muslims came in Trump’s first (partial) year with 602 since.

Here is where the nearly 20,000 Syrians were placed:

Amazing how we forget!  

Don’t miss Daniel Horowitz today at Conservative Review:

GOP governors betraying constituents by pushing refugee resettlement

He linked a list of today’s Republican Governors and so far that we know of (some might be hiding!), Republican governors of Utah, New Hampshire, Arizona and North Dakota are opposing the President (and America Firsters) on the issue of Refugee Resettlement.

 

Your tax dollars flowed to terrorists around the world via food stamp fraud

That is what a new report says.

Longtime readers know that a pet project of mine for several years was following the food stamp fraud busts going on around the country.  See my complete file on the subject here.

I’m relieved to see that some organization of stature has taken the issue of food stamp “trafficking” seriously.

From Breitbart (Hat tip: Richard @highblueridge):

Report: Millions in Food Stamp Dollars Flowed to Terrorists

Millions of taxpayers dollars trafficked through food stamp fraud went to terrorists who funded their activities at home and abroad, according to an explosive report from the Government Accountability Institute (GAI).

The report from GAI, where Breitbart News Senior-Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer serves as president, highlighted several instances where money obtained through Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits fraud went to fund acts of terrorism, including the 1993 World Trade Center bombings and the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing.

“Hawalas” used to launder money

The U.S. Treasury Department and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) identified that many terrorists would get away with funding their illicit activities by using businesses known as “hawalas” to launder money.

A “hawala”— which is an Arabic term defined in English as transfer (or trust)— is a method of transferring money through informal agents from international networks, and many Muslim immigrants settled in western countries use the “hawala” method to transfer funds to family members.

GAI, citing a U.S. Treasury report, found that more than $7 billion flows into Pakistan alone through hawalas every year.

[….]

Investigators say it is very difficult to track the money moved around through hawalas, even though the federal government has known about the use of hawalas and their alleged role in financing terrorism for years.

But as federal investigators became more familiar with the welfare fraud mechanisms used to fund terrorist activities after the September 11 attacks, investigators have cracked down on a number of instances where terrorists have used the benefit fraud for such purposes.

Much more here.

By the way, even if your tax dollars don’t make it into the hands of terrorists, the billions of US dollars sent out of the country via remittances to ‘home’ countries have a huge impact on the US as it is money that is not available to our economy.

Former State Department employee: virtually impossible to vet refugees

Adding a knowledgeable and experienced voice to the on-going debate in the White House on possible refugee admission numbers for FY19, don’t miss Mary Doetsch writing at the Daily Caller yesterday on the question of security screening of refugees.

 

FAILURES IN REFUGEE VETTING PROCESS LEAD TO CRIMINAL ACTIVITY IN OUR HOMETOWNS

 

As refugee contractors — who make money on every refugee they resettle — break into hyper-lobbying mode to demand that the Trump administration resettle “at least 75,000” in the coming fiscal year, the recent lies and criminal activity of five refugees who were resettled via the fraud-laden U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) are, once again, being willfully ignored.

we are all america tweet
This is part of the refugee industry’s extensive and well-funded media campaign to pressure the President in to agreeing to admit 75,000 refugees beginning in five weeks.

Four improperly deemed “refugees” were charged with murder, lying to gain admission into the United States, and immigration benefits, among other crimes, while a fifth was charged with attempted murder.

In each case, the approved refugee likely would have been subjected to the much-touted, though often feckless, “enhanced vetting” that advocates say both ensures the legitimacy of the refugee claim and protects U.S. security interests. Nonetheless, at least four of the five successfully lied their way through what advocates claim is the “most vetted” interviewing process, duping refugee officers with their fabricated stories.

Sadly, these cases are simply the tip of the iceberg. As a Refugee Coordinator who covered the Middle East, Africa, Russia, Europe and Cuba for eight years, I had first-hand knowledge of country conditions and political realities, and I saw and read hundreds of fraudulent refugee claims.

Disturbingly, the majority of refugee claims are ultimately approved, despite serious questions regarding the applicants’ reliability and truthfulness, often based solely on their testimony.

[….]

Despite claims that refugees are subject to the most intense scrutiny prior to resettlement into the United States, the bottom line is that in countries with ill-functioning governments or where no reliable data exists, it is virtually impossible to vet refugee candidates.

Moratorium!

And, if you haven’t told the White House what you think about how many refugees could be admitted to the US beginning October first, do it now.

I’m saying zero until the refugee program is completely reformed by Congress!
