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 Gatsas running 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 Taylor on Fox and Friends Weekend.  LOL! How about Taylor for Trump’s VEEP (just kidding!).

 

Death by demography: The 2016 Presidential race will decide America’s future

It is as simple (and as scary as that)!

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.

Ellison and Cardon
Representatives Keith Ellison and Andre Carson went to the National Press Club last week to speak against ‘Islamophobia’ and said of Trump: Trump in particular appeals to people’s “paternalistic, tribalistic impulse,”…. Sheesh, and of course Ellison isn’t doing the same for his Islamic tribe!

After seeing this enlightening and provocative post at ‘Gates of Vienna’ thanks to Richard at Blue Ridge Forum, I wanted to say something here about how every one of you reading this must begin to thoroughly educate yourselves about what Islam really is!

Do you know the ten Arabic words?***

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 Frontpage magazine 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 post at 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!

***Do you know these words?  “dawah, dhimmi, hijra, jizya, kafir, shaheed, shariah, takfir, taqiyya, ummah

If not, you have work to do!

Will surge of refugees to Michigan in coming months help Donald Trump win that all-important state?

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.

donald-hilary-bernie
Both Hillary or Bernie would put refugee resettlement to America on steroids if elected in November. Michigan will be on its way to becoming the first Muslim state in America. As Michigan goes, so goes the nation.

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.

Welfare forms in Michigan written in Arabic. http://dailycaller.com/2015/11/24/michigans-welfare-program-helpfully-offers-phone-assistance-all-forms-in-arabic/

Here is the Detroit Free Press yesterday:

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!

Beware the Delphi Technique! This time in Billings, Montana

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.

He says his work in Spokane with the media has helped keep a lid on the controversy that now embroils nearby Missoula, MT.  (See also this morning’s post on Rutland, VT where it looks like the media lid is off!).

St. Andrew Presbyterian Church
St. Andrew Presbyterian Church will host a “constructive conversation” about Syrian refugee resettlement on May 21st.

This is what I want to get to…..

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.

montana

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 office@standrewbillings.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!

Conservative Tree House blogger says you can do it too!

Do you follow Sundance at the Conservative Tree House blog?  If not, you should.

darth20soros
And, it is not just Soros on the Left, but the Murdochs and Kochs on the Right!

I don’t know who he (or she) is, or if it is really a ‘they,’ but here in an important post yesterday, Sundance reminds all of us that we can do what he/she has done in exposing the big money/power behind the throne.

I didn’t know it when I started to write about the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program that single-issue/investigative blogging held so much promise.

Now I believe there is almost nothing so important as citizen journalists especially when they focus like a laser on a critical issue of our day!

Here is Sundance explaining how there are trillions of dollars at stake in the Presidential race and why Donald Trump is such a threat to them (the poster at right says it all).

But, this is the line that jumped out at me:

Anyone with even moderate research skills could assemble the same data if they had: a.) time, and b.) inclination.    Sometimes, like the “splitter strategy“, conspiracies are not theory.  The behavior inherent within the visible activity is simply just an outcome of a mutually beneficial plan.

Please, please find some time and join the small (so far!) army of citizen journalists, it is really the only hope we have to save America.  Find one issue, be persistent, work a little every day, and find a way to get what you learn out to your fellow citizens even if it is just in your home town!

The framers understood the importance of the First Amendment—use it!

And, do it fearlessly!

Trump comes to Hagerstown, MD

Yesterday was a picture-perfect spring day in western Maryland. It was the kind of day for a visit to friends, a lunch out, a little work in the garden, but instead I, and thousands of others from Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, walked what felt like a mile from the parking area to a huge airplane hangar at the Hagerstown Regional Airport where, packed like sardines, we waited for hours to hear what Presidential candidate Donald Trump had to say.

It was worth the wait.

The aching back and legs were all worth experiencing the phenomenon first hand.

On the roads lining the walk to the hangar were dozens of vendors selling Trump memorabilia.  I asked one woman where she was from and she said Michigan. Imagine this! They follow Trump events around the country selling their wares. It must be lucrative for them and one had to admire their entrepreneurial spirits (if not the quality of their merchandise).

There were two small groups of demonstrators.  There was a small (maybe 20) group of locals with homemade signs that seemed to favor the word “hate.”  And, then there was another group, maybe 15, closer to the hangar with the characteristic professionally printed commie signs. You know they are always bright yellow with black letters (Workers World Party in this case).

Snipers were on roofs nearby and the security check involved metal detectors and bag searches.

Then came the wait….

Music played, people chatted with their compatriots and those around them for hours! Occasionally a chant broke out.  A raised platform in the middle of the hangar held at least a dozen camera-men and reporters for presumably all of the major media.

The vendors got some $ from me!

While chatting with neighbors, we agreed that much of the passion (and endurance—you know Sunday afternoon, beautiful day) in a group like this was a direct result of watching the Obama presidency over the last 7 plus years and wanting to send a message that his Presidency would be most repudiated and nullified with Donald Trump in the White House.

The only problem I saw with the planning for the rally (they had food, water and porta pots), albeit it was done with only a couple of days notice, was the enormous wasted opportunity with a microphone available and a crowd of thousands getting bored (how many times could you send text messages and otherwise play with your phones).

I wished we could hear from others campaigning for office, or better still hear from the Trump delegate candidates who will be on the ballot tomorrow.

Since I was positioned maybe a third of the way back from the podium, I have no idea whether the hangar was completely full, but I am told it was.

My uneducated guess put the crowd size at about 7,000-10,000.  The local newspaper, the Hagerstown Herald Mail puts it at 5,000. Trump himself put it at 18,000 (you did have to go on line and get tickets so maybe he did have the best handle on the number).  But, no matter the size, the energy was electric and looking around it was evident that Trump supporters come from all walks of life.

One of my friends said she felt safe because many of the men, they were young and old, looked like they could take care of themselves and us if something bad happened.  I put the crowd as almost evenly split between men and women (so much for the notion that women don’t like Trump).

Lynn, Diana and me
Our excellent adventure! Lynn, Diana and me

Trump was supposed to fly in at 4 p.m. but it was nearly five before his well-known Trump helicopter arrived to booming triumphant music.

He spoke for about an hour with no teleprompter and no sign that he was going to follow the supposed instructions of his new campaign hires to look and sound presidential.

The audience roared and laughed along with him especially cheering his statements about getting rid of Obamacare and Common Core.  They roared approval of his trademark build-the-wall plans, and his adamant assertion that he will fight for the second amendment and take care of vets.

And, of course his ideas on trade and jobs were a focal point as he several times reported on how much manufacturing Maryland has lost in recent decades.  (You can watch it all in replay, here).

I was struck by his use of the words a couple of times near the end—“America First!”—the two words that I believe sum up his entire message.

Only one line in the Herald Mail story mentioned the real genius of the speech, he made the audience feel like they were in this with him, that he didn’t care who endorsed him as long as we, the voters, did:

I want your endorsement,” he said to cheers.

Much to my surprise, when it was all over, Trump did not jump in the waiting helicopter and immediately fly away.  He stayed for at least another half an hour talking to people along the rail that held hundreds of diehard fans back as they snapped photos of him.  Then he took group photos on the tarmac with military (or police). (I couldn’t tell from where I stood.)

I was able to see aide Stephen Miller on the tarmac with him. You may know him as the former aide to Senator Jeff Sessions and a national expert on the issue of immigration.

All in all, it was well worth giving up a beautiful day because my friends and I agreed that we were witnessing history in the making (no matter how it turns out).

We need more of this! Become a citizen journalist!

This is an incredible tale from a recent “town hall” in Northern Virginia. The citizen investigative reporter/journalist, C. Trauernicht, attended a public meeting and reports what was heard here at Conservative HQ.

I’ve only snipped a small segment of the article because I want you to read the whole thing especially if you live in Virginia where some of your elected officials are mentioned by name!

You too can do this!

Arlington Muslim Town Hall Meeting Bashes GOP Presidential Candidates

The “non-partisan” description was what drew me to the event. I fully expected there to be a thoughtful, educational, informative, respectful exchange of ideas. But that was not what happened.

Alfonso-638x425
Virginia Del Alfonzo Lopez (D-Arlington) mocked the Tea Party for concerns about Sharia law and called out “75-year old white Delegates in Richmond who want their VA back.”

Simply put, the organizers staged an event to bash VA Republican legislators, and presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. The “Town Hall Meeting” was highly partisan, to the point of distraction from the advertised topic.

There was no discussion about the tenets of Islam, no discussion about the tension between the Qur’an and the Hadith, and no discussion about the possible conflict within the Muslim community about their faith.

The first speaker was Nader Hasan, cousin of Major Nidal Hasan, known as the Fort Hood shooter. Nader described himself as “the epitome of the American dream,” and spoke about how he grew up in America, living a pleasant life. Never did he experience discrimination until after the Fort Hood shooting. [Then surprise! Continue reading…]

[….]

As the program moved through the next two panels of speakers, what attendees heard was consistent criticism of Republicans – ONLY. The VA legislators and Arlington County Board members who spoke were Democrats. The only Republican speaker identified was a representative of the Arlington County Republicans, and he sounded like an apologist for the Democrats. Even the two British speakers bashed Republicans!

Continue reading here, then get out there and find a public meeting like this near you! Don’t wait for a biased ‘mainstream media’ report on the event!

Attend and take good notes! Find a place to publish what you learn, write a letter-to-the editor, or better still: start your own blog!
