Who is Refaai Hamo? White House poster boy for Syrian refugees in America

Tonight, if you watch Obama’s last State of the Union address, you will see Refaai Hamo sitting with First Lady Michelle Obama.  Hamo is the personification of all Syrians coming to America according to the White House propaganda machine.

Refaai Hamo and Mohammad
A PR firm working for Lutheran Social Services of MI arranged a press conference for Hamo and his son Mohammad when they arrived in the US in December. http://www.lynnegolodner.com/the-world-around-me/why-did-the-syrian-scientists-story-go-viral/

If you have never heard the name, Refaai Hamo, just google it (there are pages of stories about him).  The gist of his story (the Left loves stories!) is that “The Scientist” had his sumptuous home blasted by a missile in Syria several years ago (stories vary on what year), and has been living in Turkey with some of his children.

In his story now made famous by several Leftwing sites (and a resettlement contractor’s PR firm!), what kind of a ‘scientist’ he is, is never mentioned. There is one mention that he was a civil engineer working as a “consultant” of some sort.  Are civil engineers considered scientists?

Stories like Hamo’s don’t just spread like wildfire. Lynne Golodner who runs a PR firm called Your People LLC was hired by LSS of MI to head their campaign on behalf of Hamo (The Scientist). I sure hope your tax dollars didn’t pay her contract. http://www.lynnegolodner.com/biography/

The missile attack supposedly killed his wife and one daughter, but in one account I read his then 14-year-old son was the victim.

According to this story, son Mohammed (now 18) is alive and well.  They reportedly were in Turkey for the last two years, so where were they for two years after that attack.  The timeline is fuzzy.

And, to add to his tale of woe, he now has stomach cancer and said that he could not get treatment in Turkey.  (But he heard about Obamacare and here he is!)

***Update*** You can’t make this up! Oopsy! No cancer! Brandon Stanton of ‘Humans of New York’ tweeted:

Dr. Hamo recently underwent surgery to have a large tumor removed from his stomach. It was benign.

Since mid-December he has been living in the Troy, Michigan area in a wealthy neighborhood.  So he didn’t have any money to pay for treatment in Turkey?  The whole story sounds fishy to me.

***Update*** If you find more on Hamo’s ‘story’ please send us links!

He has money now! Some big shot actor and filmmaker took up his story and set up a go-fund me page and has raised nearly a half million dollars for him.  My first thought was, oh good, his cancer treatment costs will not come out of the wallets of American taxpayers.  But hold on….

His federal refugee resettlement contractor (Lutheran Social Services of Michigan) will be ‘managing’ his money for him.  LOL! I bet that arrangement doesn’t last too long!

To make a long story short, the White House and the No Borders activists will use Hamo tonight as part of a massive PR campaign they are waging on America to get your minds right on the Obama Syrian influx just now getting underway.

I don’t have time to write about it, but see “Welcoming Michigan” here and its campaign with the Catholic Church in that state to tamp down any pockets of resistance to changing Michigan by changing the people.

Lutheran Social Services of Michigan—doing well by doing good!

mark Stutrud
Mark Stutrud, former CEO at LSS Michigan (and now at LSS Illinois) pulled down a compensation package valued at over $450,000 reported in 2013 Form 990.

Just as I said the other day about Lutheran Social Services of Minnesota, concerned citizens in Michigan must begin to investigate the federal resettlement contractors working in the state.

Start here with the most recent Form 990 for LSS Michigan, a $93 million a year quasi-government agency.

We thought Jodi Harpstead’s salary in Minnesota was huge, but check out the salary, benefits and related income Mark Stutrud pulled down in this 2013 Form 990. (Stutrud has since moved on to head up Lutheran Social Services of Illinois.  We can assume the CEO now in charge in Michigan is getting a similar fantastic package.)

For young up-and-comers, forget Wall Street, it’s the ‘Christian charity’ world that you should be shooting for if you want to live well while wearing the do-gooder white hat!

Good Lutherans should begin to demand answers about what is being done in the name of your faith and why LSS is in the forefront of resettling Muslims to American towns.

One last thing… Jodi Harpstead’s MALE predecessor at LSS Minnesota made much more than she did and so does Stutrud (a little income inequality in the Christian charity world?).

One more one last thing…. there is more to Hamo’s story than we are being told.  I sure hope some real investigators dig in further.

  1. Per this article on her personal website


    in the not-too-distant past Golodner, who is a Jew herself, lamented attacks on Jews in France — more attacks have happened since then, and of course these attacks are primarily carried out by muslims — the same muslims she is apparently helping, albeit indirectly, come to the US.

    She is either really stupid or really venal.
