If you are a follower ofRefugee Resettlement Watch you know I’m on a roadtrip in the American heartland. I’m visiting refugee resettlement hot spots in a month-long tour.
Yesterday I was in Janesville, Wisconsin, Speaker Paul Ryan’s hometown, and had an opportunity to meet with some local citizen activists to tell them what to expect if Janesville should be targeted as a new resettlement site.
I also had the pleasure of meeting Ryan’s tenacious competitor Paul Nehlen.
Editor: I am now over 1,200 miles from home and expect to put 4,000 or more miles on my car during my month-long swing through America! More as I get a few minutes at the computer.
Reporter Julia Hahn at Breitbarthas been following the campaign closely. If you haven’t seen some of her good work, go here, here and here.
Here is how Hahn began her latest news on the campaign:
At a press conference held in front of Kenosha News, Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen demanded that House Speaker Paul Ryan take down his deceptive Wisconsin TV ads, in which Ryan claims he’s trying to keep Islamic terrorists from entering the country.
As speaker, Paul Ryan should be asked repeatedly in the coming weeks (the primary is August 9th) if he will cut funding for Obama’s promised expansion of the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program for 2017 (Obama’s last decision on the program will be due before Congress in late September).
The primary is August 9th!
Visit Nehlen’s campaign website and consider donating to the only candidate who could stop Ryan’s open borders impulse! If we get Hillary in the White House and Paul Ryan as Speaker, we are finished. America’s borders will be flung open and a free-for-all unleashed as the third world rushes in.
If you have a few days to spare, contact the campaign and do a road trip to Wisconsin’s first district and give a hand!
One of Donald Trump’s earliest supporters, conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly, has penned a piece published at World Net Daily citing evidence that Trump is correct in suggesting at least a temporary ban on Muslim immigration (until we figure out what is going on).
By the way, Schlafly lost some of her friends and longtime supporters when she early-on endorsed Donald Trump, but she has not wavered in that support.
Here she points out one of the most overlooked trends, so obvious to many of us, but apparently not to the Left or others who support MORE Muslim immigration: we can screen the first generation until the cows come home, but it is the second generation—the ones we fed, housed and educated on the taxpayer’s dime— which is killing us.
She uses the word “assimilation” but the Obama Administration has assiduously avoided that word which implies becoming American. They prefer “integration” with an implied side-by-side tolerance, but sends the message to the immigrants/refugees that they don’t need to become Americans.
“We admit more than 100,000 lifetime migrants from the Middle East each year,” Trump said. “Since 9/11, hundreds of migrants and their children have been implicated in terrorism in the United States.”
Trump was right to include the children of immigrants as part of the immigration problem. The Orlando shooter, Mateen, was born in the United States, but a witness said he referred to Afghanistan as “my country.”
Besides Orlando, other mass killings have been perpetrated by the U.S.-born children of Muslim immigrants or individuals who were brought here as children by their Muslim parents. Examples include one of the San Bernardino killers; the Fort Hood shooter, Maj. Nidal Hasan; the Tsarnaev brothers, who bombed the Boston Marathon in 2013; and the man who killed four active-duty Marines and a sailor in Chattanooga in 2015.
Read it all here and then don’t forget the Minnesota Somali ‘youths’ wanting to join ISIS by the dozen.
Editor: Sorry I haven’t written much here recently, the refugee issue is reaching a critical mass and I can barely keep up there—at Refugee Resettlement Watch.
One thing Orlando (and Trump’s response to it) has done is force our so-called leaders to, as we say in rural America, show themselves.
Although we already had ample evidence that Speaker Paul Ryan was doing everything in his power to undermine the Republican nominee for President of the United States, his rebuke of Trump yesterday sends a clear message about where the man stands.
He would prefer Hillary as President, or he wouldn’t have said what he did.
We have all known for a long time that Ryan is for open borders and can only presume that is because he must suck up to the donor class (most of whom are millionaires and billionaires who need cheap immigrant labor). Why he is also pandering to Muslims in the wake of Orlando is a mystery.
Also, Ryan has not lifted a finger to rein-in the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program. Is he under the thumb of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops which takes in millions each year to resettle Muslim refugees to your towns?
But, Ryan’s clear ignorance about Islamic supremacism and Islam’s goals for the world should be enough to make everyone reading this willing to, at minimum, open your wallets and send his primary competitor Paul Nehlen a contribution.
The Republican primary election date is August 9th (just 8 weeks away!).Maybe you have a little time to share with his campaign as well.
For more, visit Matthew Boyle’s good piece on Ryan’s response to Orlando, here. And, watch Ryan yesterday in response to Trump’s excellent speech from New Hampshire where he reiterated his call for a ban on Muslim migration to America until we can figure out what is going on.
Why? Because for many reasons they remain silent (with occasional perfunctory verbiage as they did in the wake of the Orlando massacre) as their fellow Muslims commit atrocities in the name of Allah. All devout Muslims know that Mohammed’s prescription is for Islam to dominate the world.
Again, go hereto ABC News and watch Ryan yesterday.
Why is he still so ignorant?
Surely you have an extra $25 or so to send to Nehlen. Go here and send Ryan a message!
I just happened to pass through the kitchen this morning and catch the word “refugee” coming from Fox and Friends.
I still continue to be amazed that the ‘R’ word is coming from cable news hosts now on a regular basis. I bet for 8 of my nearly 9 years of writing about our dysfunctional UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program that word was never uttered on TV.
Trump used the word in a speech yesterday so his comments were the lead to this story about how refugees cost the US taxpayer $20,000 a piece to just bring them into the country! (Remember that figure does not include years of welfare subsidies, medical care and education for the kids!).
Anyway this is what I want you to see. His name is Scott Taylor and he is running for Congress in Virginia’s second district. Astoundingly, he is willing to speak out in an educated way about refugees coming to America from the Middle East!
Just like I said this week at RRW, about Mayor Ted Gatsasrunning for governor of New Hampshire, you must get behind candidates willing to take on the establishment (on the Left and Right) who never even question our refugee admissions policy.
Watch Tayloron Fox and Friends Weekend. LOL! How about Taylor for Trump’s VEEP (just kidding!).
And, everyone of us must now, immediately, begin or continue to educate ourselves about Islam and what the expanding Muslim population will do to Western Civilization, America and our way of life.
We can already see what it is doing to Europe, what more do we need! Do we think that somehow we will escape? Do you believe America’s melting pot can withstand the Islamic demographic juggernaut (the hijra!) coming our way?
Update May 31: be sure to see Leo Hohmann’s story at WND about the huge numbers of green cards we are giving out to Muslims from all over the world, here.
And, since I read that post last week, I see that America’s first Muslim Congressmen took to the podium at the National Press Club to exhort their fellow Muslims to get into the Presidential election to defeat Donald Trump and “Islamophobia” here.
It is not about ‘Islamophobia,’ it is all about migration and the fear among Islamists that Trump (and you) will demand a halt to the migration, the hijra.
In Minnesota, where Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison represents the large and growing Somali ‘community’ we see the Minneapolis Star Tribune(also last week) go ballistic over speaking engagements throughout the state by an Egyptian Coptic Christian using the Koran to explain to the public what Islam’s goals for world domination entail. (Hint: It involves migration!)
We have Daniel Greenfield, writing at Frontpagemagazine last week telling us that the Muslim migration will not end because Muslim countries are largely dysfunctional and Muslims procreate at higher levels than do westerners. The invasion will not end, for Europe and for us, there are just too many of them!
So how much do you know about Islam? Do you know what the ten words mean?
Reader Bob, sent us this very useful postat Real Facts Media (from March 2016)entitled:
Mohammed, Islamic History, and the Bloody Future of the West
It is one of the clearest/simplest descriptions I’ve seen (not that I have seen everything on the subject, so no offense to any other informative writers), and so I encourage you all to read it. (Bill Warner, one of the greatest experts on Islam and the Koran is mentioned.)
Does this sound like you?
Can I ask you a question?
Have you ever had that sickening feeling, deep down inside, as if some inner voice was trying to warn you that something is wrong?
It almost feels like the harder you try to push it away the louder it gets, gnawing away at your conscience.
And even if you try to ignore it… you can’t.
Every time there is a new Islamic terror attack and you learn the horrific details, that awkward and nauseating feeling comes back again.
It’s trying to warn you, “Something is very wrong.”
And after every Islamic terror attack, our politicians and media try desperately to assure us of two things:
These “terrorists do not represent Islam” and We are a multicultural society that welcomes Muslim immigration
And yet, that inner voice deep down inside you remains…
Because your inner voice is correct.
Please take the time to read the whole thing by clicking here. Learn that there are not two Islams—the peaceful and the radical—it is all one Islam! And, once educated, tell everyone you know to learn (and act) before it is too late and their numbers are too great!

Reports are coming out of Michigan that suggest the state, already a leading state attracting Muslim migrants, will be getting a surge of Syrians as the end of fiscal year 2016 approaches (that would be September 30th).
Refugee numbers always surge in the late summer and up until the 30th because the feds and their contractors are desperate to get their numbers up to the magic number, this year it is 85,000, that the President asked for last fall. (Congress just winked at that number. What will they do when Obama comes in with a ‘determination’ of 100,000 for FY 2017?).
We also know that Michigan, a leading state for Syrian Muslim refugee resettlement, is a state that Donald Trump has on his target list to win.
There are 4 or so states that have gone to the Democrats in recent Presidential contests (Wisconsin and Michigan of course have gone for the D for decades), but are now considered to be ‘in play’ for The Donald.
Interestingly, three of the four are top refugee resettlement states (in the top ten!)—Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania(Wisconsin is no slouch either). I suspect that is no coincidence since the Dems have made it clear they are turning red states blue by changing the people!
So, here is a story at the Detroit Free Press that says a SURGE of Syrians (99% of Syrians entering the US as refugees are Muslims) is expected to arrive in the state in the next few months.
Could anger against Obama and the Democrats over burdening the state with low-skilled immigrants who will be drains on the welfare system, AND pose a security risk to their neighbors, be parlayed into enough votes for Donald Trump?
Frankly folks, the hard reality is that the flow of migrants in to America from all corners of the world will definitely be increased in a Hillary (or Bernie) administration because they will see a repudiation of Trump as an indicator that you don’t care about immigration.
WASHINGTON — With less than five months to go, the Obama administration remains far behind its target of resettling 10,000 Syrian refugees by Sept. 30, but officials are expecting to draw closer to that goal in the coming months with a spike in resettlements in Michigan and across the U.S.
If a surge is coming, Michigan is likely to be involved: Since the fiscal year began last October, 211 Syrians have been resettled in the state, more than anywhere else in the country — for a total of 386 resettlements between Jan. 1, 2015, and April 30 of this year. And that’s no surprise, considering southeastern Michigan has the largest Arab-American community in the U.S. with cultural and societal ties to the Middle East and deep experience with refugee resettlements.
But the numbers of those coming could dwarf what has been seen to date. According to the State Department, a total of 1,736 Syrians have been resettled in the U.S. since October, meaning it would take on average more than 1,650 resettlements a month through Sept. 30 to hit the 10,000 mark.
If Michigan — which has resettled about 12% of the Syrians accepted into the U.S. since the refugee crisis began last year — continues its trend, the state could welcome hundreds more in the near future, even as questions about immigration lurk as part of a fractious general election debate.
So again, I think that Michigan is pivotal in Election 2016.
Can a resettlement surge of mostly Muslim refugees to the state concern enough voters to reject a Democrat in the 2016 Presidential election?
On the campaign trail, folks in Michigan should ‘dog’ all candidates with questions about the future of Michigan. Will it be a state to be further colonized by Middle Easterners, or not?
Visit RRW for a lengthy archive on the state by clicking here. Believe it or not, a few years ago the US State Department tried to curtail resettlement to Michigan because the refugees would have few employment opportunities. I don’t know why they then subsequently opened the spigot!
Buried near the end of this news account from Billings, MT about churches preparing welcoming kits for refugees is a bit of information you need to know more about—no matter what political issue concerns you!
First wade through a discussion about World Relief Spokane’s Mark Kadel as he brags about how he is proactive with the media to get out a “welcoming” message about refugees to head off the unwelcoming locals.
Near the end of the longish piece we learn that a Billings Presbyterian Church is going to hold a community meeting about Syrian refugees on May 21.
St. Andrew Presbyterian Church in Billings invites area residents to engage in constructive conversations about Syrian refugees on Saturday, May 21, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the church, 180 24th St. W.
With a target of 10,000 Syrian refugees to be resettled in the United States by Sept. 30, Montanans are discussing whether Syrian refugees would be welcome in this state or if security issues are more important than the welfare of Syrians.
Participants will join in small groups, with some members in favor of settling Syrian refugees in Montana and others who are concerned about the safety and security of citizens if Syrian refugees are permitted. A facilitator will encourage each person to tell his or her story and background, after which participants will explore any areas of common agreement. [Keep in mind that this ‘story and background’ mumbo jumbo is just one more strategy used to play on your emotions and stop logical debate.—ed]
The goal, according to a press release from the church, “is to learn to listen to others and to share our opinions in a civil manner, trying to understand each other without a need to come to any conclusions.”
For more information or to register for the free event, call the church weekday mornings at 656-9256 or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please state whether you are for or against the acceptance of Syrian refugees. This project is supported by a peace-making grant provided to St. Andrew Presbyterian Church by the Yellowstone Presbytery.
[LOL! they need to know in advance if you are for or against Syrians coming to Montana. Why?—ed]
Why is this so interesting to me (and should be to you)?
Because this is an example of the Delphi Technique, a system first developed over 50 years ago that is used now to direct the outcome of a public meeting to a pre-determined conclusion. This (click here) is a good description of it.
The process used to “facilitate” the meeting is called the Delphi Technique. This Delphi Technique was developed by the RAND Corporation for the U.S. Department of Defense back in the 1950s. It was originally intended for use as a psychological weapon during the cold war.
However, it was soon recognized that the steps of Delphi could be very valuable in manipulating ANY meeting toward a predetermined end.
There are many variations, but here is a simple description of what I predict will happen (and what you can consider doing) at the St. Andrew Presbyterian Church:
Instead of the entire audience hearing the various critics of the idea of bringing refugees to Montana, the critics will be subsumed into small groups where the majority likely will be supporters of the proposition (refugees welcome) and have planned ahead for how to argue within your small group.
You, the critic in one group, will not hear what critics in other groups are saying. The facilitator in each group will have been carefully chosen in advance (he or she will favor resettlement of refugees in Montana). Of course a smart facilitator will be slick, and you, the critic, will feel like your concerns have been heard.
But, since you are in the minority (unless many many critics show up!) when the group comes back together in the body of the whole, you will be made to feel that your opinion was the minority opinion and may not even be mentioned when wrap-up reports are given by each facilitator.
Media reports of the gathering will say that the majority of Billings citizens want to welcome refugees.
It seems to me that if you are planning to attend and are of the opinion that impoverished third world refugees from mostly the Middle East and Africa will not benefit your community you have several choices.
First, don’t participate at all and maybe protest outside.
Or, participate but stand up at the beginning and demand that you don’t break into small groups—then everyone hears everyone’s else’s concerns and ideas. If they insist on the break-out groups (because their entire strategy is based on Delphi), you walk out (and complain to the press).
Or, if there are enough of you to make sure each small group has a large compliment of critics, and you are all prepared for their strategy, then it might be worth participating.
When you are participating be firm (and stay calm!) and do not allow anyone in your group (the pro-refugee people) to wander into a discussion about moral duty. Make them stick to the facts—cost of the program, employment, housing, security and so forth.
It is important to stay calm and reasoned because one important part of the Delphi Strategy is to show you as crazy people and the facilitators (the pro-refugee resettlement people) as the professional-sounding ‘good’ people. Anyone attending who has not made up their mind will then naturally tend to relate to those people—the nice-sounding people—instead of you.
Make sure you get to the media when it’s over and don’t allow the sponsoring group to monopolize any reporters present. If no reporters are present, then call your local media yourself—right away!
There might be other things you can think of to do, I’m not an expert, but I have seen it done to unsuspecting citizens often enough to recognize it!
And, please, please, all of you who plan to attend, click here and read the strategy on how you can defeat the Delphi Technique!
