Stories, stories, stories, the Left’s tried and true method to jerk your chain

Well, maybe not your chain dear readers, because you get it, but for those not steeped in policy discussions on a daily basis.  Casual voters and skimmers of the news are particularly vulnerable.

Get out your tissues!  Rather than arguing the logic (illogic from our point of view) of federal initiatives—like the mass migration push of the Progressive Left, they always manage to get sympathetic stories about immigrants and refugees planted throughout the media in an effort to reach your emotions with the hope that you will forget your brains!

This is a ‘story’ from last week at the Daily Beast and it’s all about how a Muslim woman is now a US citizen thanks to Reagan’s 1986 (disastrous for us) amnesty. The title of the ‘story’ is: ‘A Muslim woman brought here by Reagan. Pushed away by Trump.’

Nancy and Farhana

The ‘story’s’ hook is Nancy Reagan’s passing.  And, by the way, Farhana (the sympathetic star of the ‘story’) was not “brought here by Reagan.” Her father got in here illegally from Bangladesh and was granted amnesty (along with millions of other illegals) by Reagan.

Now Farhana, who always voted Republican (we are told) is being driven away from the political party she loves by Trump’s language.  I don’t need to go on, you get it, as if the Daily Beast cares one wit about one less Republican voter.

My point here is that we need to play the ‘story’ game every chance we get!

Those of us using our logic and reason when looking at public policy issues need to play their game more often—the let’s tell a ‘story’ game.

For example, I never miss an opportunity to remind readers of that brutal rape and murder by a Muslim refugee of a little Christian girl in Salt Lake City a few years ago.  I reported it again here yesterday.

(And, by the way, the national media never picked up this ‘story’ even as the sensational trial went on for many weeks. Why? Because it didn’t fit the mainstream media’s narrative!)

Then there is the Iraqi refugee rapist who was living in Colorado Springs before he was sent to prison for the next 28 years, and the Kentucky refugee jihadists now doing time in federal prison.  Grrrr! You paid for their resettlement to America and now you will pay for their decades behind bars.

You get my drift. If the Open Borders Progressive Left is going to inundate the media with sympathetic migrant stories, you should be doing the same with the unsympathetic ones.

Don’t make anything up or exaggerate—just remember to use emotion as a strategic (powerful) political weapon when you write.

If they can use Farhana’s story, you can balance it with Met’s story!

Have some fun at USA Spending.gov! $296 million went to Lutherans since Obama took office!

The other day I suggested that each and every one of you can be an investigative reporter, see that post by clicking here.

So here we are, a winter weekend, can’t do much outdoors, and maybe you aren’t into the Super Bowl, so how about having fun searching for how much of your hard earned tax dollars are going to charities—especially to ‘religious’ charities pretending to be doing the Lord’s work while spending your money!

USA Spending graphicI haven’t written about USA Spending.gov for awhile, so last night when a reader asked about a local Catholic Charities, I tried that government website again.  It is much improved because it now contains the sub-grants in addition to the amounts that are direct grants.  I think there was a grace period for grantees to get their information on sub-grants to USA Spending.gov, but they are there now.  (Here is a bit of information about how grantees need to be ready to provide sub-grant information.)

So back to the USA Spending.gov website I looked up the specific Catholic Charities my reader was interested in and was blown away when I saw the millions of dollars just one little local Catholic Charities was getting.

I then decided to just pick one of the nine federal refugee resettlement contractors (which have in the vicinity of 350 sub-grantees or sub-contractors), to see what the biggies were getting.  Here (below) is Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service which resettles refugees in your towns and cities and also agitates for amnesty for illegal aliens.

LIRS is lobbying (with your money!) as we speak for 100,000 Syrians to be admitted to the US before Obama leaves office.

Prepare to be shocked!  Since August 2008, this one ‘religious’ non-profit received $296 MILLION dollars from you in 143 transactions with federal agencies. (And, I will bet you LIRS is not the wealthiest!)

Click here and see for yourself!  (Sorry the screenshot isn’t very clear!)

I urge you all to try the website.  Unfortunately for PRO-Open Borders Catholic agencies, there are too many of them and they aren’t all in one place. So try your local Catholic Diocese first.  Then think of all the other non-profits that have their hands in your wallet and see how much and from where their grants are flowing.

They will all say they help the poor with your money, but I repeat, they are also lobbying for more (poor) migrants to be admitted to the US!  Our founding fathers must be rolling in their graves to see the federal treasury used in this way.

Then you must get the information you learn out to others beyond your circle. Maybe take your facts and write a letter to the editor. Ask to write an Op-ed for your local paper. Go on talk radio. Write a blog!  Send what you learn to your elected officials and ask why on earth they are giving your money to Open Borders Leftwing organizations masquerading as religious charities.

Come to think of it, where is the ACLU on the separation of church and state?

Is your public school child being forced to profess their faith in Islam?

You must find out!  This is a story I just posted at Potomac Tea Party Report about what is happening in Maryland.  However, you can be sure this is happening in most states in America.

Find out! And, then go to war with your local school district and your state legislators. This is a prime example of sharia law creeping into society through your children.

Maryland public school being sued for forcing Islamic teaching on Christian students

You’ve probably seen the news, but since Obama will be promoting the Islamic faith today in his visit to a Maryland mosque, I thought you should know that sharia law is creeping into American society through our children and the public school system.

Islamic Society of Balt

Obama will be speaking from the Islamic Society of Baltimore today. Learn about the mosque’s questionable connections here:http://www.wnd.com/2016/02/obama-ignoring-evidence-of-baltimore-mosques-ties-to-terror/

LaPlata High School is not the only school advancing Islam.

I was in Tennessee a few months ago and was fortunate to see an excellent presentation by a father who became alarmed when his daughter was forced to profess the Islamic doctrine of faith—the shahada.  He was traveling the state of TN warning parents there.

Students were expected to memorize (in Arabic) the words that are used by Muslims and those converting to Islam.

The shahada states, “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”

If anyone else in Maryland has witnessed what the Wood family has, you should contact the Thomas Moore Law Center and let them know.

Here is what World Net Daily says about the Maryland case:

A Maryland high school punished a student for refusing to profess faith in Islam, gave her failing grades for a series of assignments that violated her Christian beliefs then threatened her father with arrest for complaining, a federal lawsuit charges.

The suit was filed in U.S. District Court against the Charles County Public Schools in La Plata, Maryland, its board of education, Principal Evelyn Arnold and Vice Principal Shannon Morris by the Thomas More Law Center.

A spokeswoman for the district told WND that officials were aware of the issue but said Arnold and Morris would not be commenting.

Plaintiffs are Marine Corps veteran John Kevin Wood and his wife, Melissa, who “refuse[d] to allow their teenage daughter to be subjected to Islamic indoctrination and propaganda in her high school world history class.”

The lawsuit charges that the defendants’ “curriculum, practices, policies, actions, procedures, and customs promote the Islamic faith by requiring students to profess the five pillars if Islam.”

The students, the complaint says, were required to “write out and confess the shahada, the Islamic profession of faith.”

Look how deceptive the school was!  They knew that parents would be furious!

The lawsuit charges that school officials concealed the curriculum by using two separate history textbooks, one of which contained the Islamic teachings and which students were required to leave at school. The other, which did not contain the teachings, was allowed to be taken home, the complaint explains. The school also excised the Islamic teachings from the course syllabus.

There is much more here.

Every one of you with children in the public school system must search for Islamic indoctrination going on in your schools, and speak up!

North Carolina county tries to save itself from future Islamic terrorism

Craven County, NC isn’t the only county taking up the issue (via the resolution process) of whether refugees from terror-producing countries should be blocked from resettlement in their community.  Several county governments in South Carolina have already passed such resolutions.

The face of refugees in New Bern. Burmese refugee stabbed three children to death there last year. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2015/09/16/nc-member-of-the-house-wants-to-curb-obama-power-on-refugees-start-by-cutting-funds/

The federal refugee resettlement contractors and their Leftwing friends in the No Borders movement don’t take these resolutions seriously, but that is no reason not to do this!  They claim they have every right to shove “New Americans” down your throats.

All of you concerned about the destruction of the character, the economy and social make-up of your towns, take note.  You are guerrilla warriors in the political sense.  You are creating controversy and keeping the issue in the news by taking such actions.  The point is to make a point and get media attention!

Media attention brings the issue to new people who didn’t even know this was happening, and many don’t like it once they learn more about how refugee resettlement works and who is behind it (see UN selects our refugees!).

Here is what I learned fromCommissioners have postponed a decision on a resolution that would block Syrian refugees from being relocated to their county.

Craven County Commissioners met Tuesday morning and reviewed a draft resolution that requests the Interfaith Refugee Ministry not to bring in any refugees from countries the State Department considers to be controlled by terrorist organizations. That includes refugees from Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.

The motion was made on Tuesday to table the issue so that public comments can be introduced. Those comments can be made at the next Commissioner’s meeting on Monday, Feb. 1 at 7:00 p.m.

Go here for more on the County Commission and for location of meetings.

I can’t impress on you enough that if you live near New Bern, the county seat, you must attend and speak up.  Your goal is to get media attention! Get national attention if you can!

The point you must make is that local communities have no say about who is dropped off by the federal government and its resettlement contractors and that must be changed.

Related:  See Trump protester from North Carolina, here.  He is an adviser to a Muslim Brotherhood front group and you can bet he (or his pals) will be in New Bern.

I’m going to say more at Refugee Resettlement Watch about the numbers going to New Bern and where they are from…(I’ll add link here when I’ve posted it.)  Click here !

USCCB launches PR campaign this week: “welcome the stranger” (with your money!)

Breitbart is reporting that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops has launched a campaign this week (January 3-9) to urge all Catholics to press Obama to admit 200,000 refugees in the coming year (100,000 would be mostly Muslim Syrians).

Kevin Appleby AResistance
This is Kevin Appleby, the Bishops’ lobbyist. The Bishops also supported amnesty via the Gang of Eight bill. It would have provided them more paying “clients.”

They make it sound like good Catholics (in parishes across America) are footing the bill by ‘sponsoring‘ refugees.  Nothing could be further from the truth!

I just want to scream when I see these deceivers not tell the public how much federal tax dollars they get for their “migration” work.

Stealing from your wallet is not Christian charity.

Here is the news at Breitbart:

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is celebrating National Migration Week from January 3-9, urging Catholics throughout the country to support policies that “welcome the stranger among us.”

[….]

The bishops are urging “providing 100,000 annual resettlement slots for the most vulnerable refugees fleeing the Syria conflict,” and “designating an additional 100,000 refugees to be resettled in the U.S. from other countries.”

“Write…a letter to President Obama, urging him expand U.S. resettlement efforts of Syrian refugees who are fleeing unspeakable atrocities and violence,” the bishops urge as they also ask for donations to the Migrant Refugee Services’ (MRS) “Parishes Organized to Welcome Refugees” program which works to provide sponsorships of “newly-arriving Syrian and other refugees.”

Any money you put in the collection plate is a drop in the bucket compared to how much Washington is giving them for their ‘charitable’ work.  And, you know that many Republicans are complicit in providing the massive funding going to the Bishops and other so-called ‘religious’ charities!

Now have a look at the USCCB Migration Fund annual report!

MRS Audited Financial Statement
(As of December 31, 2014)
REVENUE
Federal Grants/Agreements……………………………………………$79,590,512
CRS Collection………………………………………………………………..1,778,214
Travel Loan Collection Fees……………………………………………….3,401,622
Meeting Fees/Dues…………………………………………………………….147,526
Private Grants /Donations……………………………………………………582,655
Other………………………………………………………………………………..6,421

Total Revenue…………………………………………………………………….$85,506,950

That means that 97% of the Bishops funding for “migration” comes from the US taxpayer.  (Those travel loan collection fees are your money too! When they wring the travel loan repayment from the impoverished refugees, they get to keep a cut rather than return it to the US Treasury).
