The American Refugee Resettlement Scam

By: James Simpson
American Thinker

President Obama and his rancid leftist allies have subjected America to a blizzard of lies. Nothing that leaves his mouth even remotely parrots the truth, but typically stands truth on its head. The propaganda infrastructure spanning media, Hollywood, non-profit institutions and the halls of academia then erects a virtually impenetrable wall of disinformation to advance the lie.

They have just foisted on us a “deal” with Iran that threatens to create a holocaust, the likes of which America, and perhaps the world, has never seen. As Iran chanted “death to America” and “death to Israel,” this “deal” somehow skirted the advice and consent role reserved to the U.S. Senate. While we are afflicted with many feckless, incompetent and corrupt Republican Senators — never mind the Democrats — the “deal” could have never obtained the requisite approval of 2/3ds of senators. The lies about the “deal” are too numerous to catalog, and before the ink has even dried, Iran has suddenly “discovered” massive stockpiles of uranium it never knew it had!

Now the administration wants to use the refugee resettlement program to import a flood of Syrian immigrants into the U.S. It will virtually guarantee an opening for ISIS and other terrorists to establish bases in the U.S. legally with taxpayer dollars. Obama created his own 9-11 in Benghazi. Apparently that wasn’t enough. Now he wants one here.

The flood of Syrian “refugees” into Europe has been called an invasion. That is clearly an apt description. While there are certainly heart-rending stories, many coming to Europe are opportunists. 72 percent are men — mostly of military age. Only 15 percent are children and 13 percent women, according to the U.N. Many are not destitute, paying thousands of dollars and embarking on long, expensive trips to reach Europe. Furthermore, half are not even Syrians but

come from Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Some of the crowds have shown themselves to be vile, vicious and ungrateful.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel opened her arms to these “migrants,” agreeing to take hundreds of thousands, but the German people are outraged. Why would Merkel do this to her own country? Is it that Merkel’s shady work for the East German Communist Party never stopped? Is Merkel assisting the Russians in their ambition to take over Europe? A biography written by two German journalists argues she has never abandoned the communism of her youth. This may explain her attitude toward the refugees now threatening to collapse the country.

Obama and the Left want the same thing here. Approximately 1,500 Syrians gained access to the U.S. this fiscal year. Obama intends to allow at least 10,000 more in FY 2016 — which starts October 1. Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), chair of the House Homeland Security Committee stated in an interview Thursday that Syrian refugees cannot be vetted for jihadist connections. “(I)t would be highly irresponsible to start bringing them in, when they could be potential terrorists, and provide a sort of a jihadist pipeline into the United States,” he said, adding, “We did this in Iraq when we had very good intelligence, and we brought in several that had already killed Americans.” McCaul joins the director of the FBI and even Obama’s Director of national intelligence James Clapper, who have both issued similar warnings.

In its recruitment documents, ISIS claims to seek “the end of the world.” ISIS has claimed 4,000 jihadis are already in Europe and it plans to similarly exploit weaknesses in the U.S. refugee program. On Sunday, an ISIS terrorist was arrested in Germany posing as a refugee. German customs has also seized 10,000 passports being smuggled into Germany, for possible use by terrorists in country. Finally, Merkel appears to have had a change of heart. Sunday afternoon Germany shut down the border, “for urgent security reasons.” All trains from Austria have been stopped.

In light of these hard facts, the Obama administration’s plan to bring in 10,000 Syrians is insane. But 10,000 is just the tip of the iceberg.  In August, the administration said it would take between 5,000 and 8,000. U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, Brent McGurk said that 17,000 Syrians had applied with the U.N. for refugee status in the U.S. (Note: by law, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) chooses virtually all of America’s refugees).  At the same time, the Obama administration signaled it may use an alternative “parole” procedure to grant entry to even more Syrians. Already, about 5,000 Syrians now in the U.S. have applied for “Temporary Protected Status,” a program for illegals fleeing war or natural disasters. Most TPS illegals simply reapply when the status expires — de facto amnesty.

Back in June, 14 Democratic U.S. senators called for America to accept 65,000 Syrian refugees. They quickly earned the nickname “Jihad Caucus.” The UNHCR had called on Western nations to take 130,000 Syrians, and since the U.S. resettles half of all refugees recommended by the U.N. (yes we do — more than all other resettlement countries combined), our magic number should be 65,000.

But it wasn’t even the senators who actually fronted that number. It originated with the Refugee Council USA, the lobbying arm of the out-of-control, serially corrupt U.S. refugee resettlement industry. And yes it is an industry. There are nine so-called “voluntary agencies” (VOLAGs) that contract with the federal government to resettle refugees. While they are classified as tax-exempt non-profits, this is a massive profit center — earning them close to $1 billion in 2014. That comes out to almost $8,000 per-head. And since the current annual refugee cap is 70,000, double the refugees, double the income — it’s simple math.

But the insanity does not stop there. The VOLAGs have screamed for many more. The Lutheran Immigrant Aid Society, which earns 97 percent of its income from taxpayers, has demanded the U.S. import 100,000 Syrians, and raise the overall refugee cap from its current 70,000 to 200,000. Cha ching!

But they were not even the first. Inexplicably, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society has suggested we may need to resettle 200,000 Syrians. Initially founded to resettle Jewish refugees, HIAS is now one of the largest Muslim resettlement agencies. Blatantly disregarding the safety of its fellow Jews and its own heritage, HIAS conveniently overlooks the fact that despite their refugee status, Syrians are not desperate enough to forget Israel, still calling it their number one enemy.

So not surprisingly, the VOLAGs are outraged that the administration is saying “only” 10,000 Syrians. Democratic legislators have carried the VOLAGs’ water, chiming in that 10,000 are “not enough.” The Pope, who has already shown his Marxist colors, is trying to convince Catholics to join the call for more. Now the entire radical leftist infrastructure has jumped on board. Moveon.org is demanding 100,000Syrians, and a new, particularly evil organization called We Welcome Refugees appealed to churches to raise the issue with their congregations on Sunday, September 13. They provide sample scripts, videos and other information churches could use.

We Welcome Refugees is a project of World Relief, one of the VOLAGs. WR received $41.2 million in government grants in 2014, 75 percent of total revenues. Your tax dollars are being spent to lobby churches so World Relief can make more money. Is this not criminal activity? It is certainly illegal for World Relief to do so. Has the IRS investigated this “non-profit?” Will it ever?

All the outrage ginned up in this massive PR campaign is clearly tactical. Expect the Obama administration to “give in” and up the numbers dramatically. In FY 2015, 97 percent of Syrian refugees resettled in the U.S. were Muslim. Ask the VOLAGs how many Syrian Christians they intend to resettle. They cannot answer. Do you know why? Resettlement agencies are not allowed to ask! If they claim to seek Christian converts they lie. VOLAGs are prohibited from proselytizing.

None of the Gulf States are taking any refugees, despite the fact that they share a culture, religion and language with the Syrians, and have money to burn. China, Russia and all the countries of the former East Bloc, have refused to take any as well. Why should America take them? Under President Obama, do we not have enough problems of our own?

It is high time for Congress to call out the administration on the destructive, out-of-control refugee resettlement program. We have initiated a petition to demand changes. Please sign it. Congressman Brian Babin has proposed legislation (HR 3314) suspending the program. It needs companion legislation in the Senate and more Congressional support.

Now we need congressional hearings to reveal the refugee resettlement agenda for what it is. It has been flying under the radar for decades while our local communities are being transformed into unrecognizable third-world camps, where refugees overwhelm local governments with demands for social services while they join illegal immigrants in stealing our jobs. Call on your legislators stop the Syrian invasion and demand hearings!

Obama is the personification of the American radical Left — a force of pure, malevolent evil intent on destroying our country. He is the Cloward Piven president. Refugee resettlement as currently structured is Cloward Piven on steroids. It is literally an agenda to erase America.

JEB BUSH IN A DRESS: Top 9 Fun Facts About Carly Fiorina

Doug Ross @ Journal

Well, in truth, these are not so much “fun facts” as they are troubling evidence that Carly Fiorina is yet another establishment plant-cum-loser, one of a series employed by the Republican leadership team to diffuse grassroots support of an outside-the-system candidate like Ted Cruz (or, currently, Donald Trump). With Carly’s rise in the polls, due to two solid debate performances, it’s worth examining her track record to determine whether: (a) could actually win a general election; and (b) she would offer good policy solutions as a commander-in-chief.

The answer on both counts is an obvious “no”. Here’s why:


In June of this year, Fiorina stated she is open to legal status for adult illegal immigrants and full citizenship for their children. During her Senate run, she endorsed the California DREAM Act, which grants in-state tuition to illegal immigrants. Furthermore, she recently stated that border walls and fences are not effective at protecting U.S. national sovereignty.


During her failed run at the Senate, the former HP CEO received plenty of heat about “hundreds of millions of dollars worth of HP printers that were sold to Iran — despite a U.S. ban on trade with that country”. In 2003 Fiorina had described the Middle East as a “growth region” for the company, with its main distributor there doing $100 million in sales that year alone. Fiorina claimed to be unaware of the illegal sales, which begs the question: what competent CEO would be unaware of a nine-figure revenue stream?


Fiorina ran the telecom giant Lucent as it was imploding, a fact that she was able to conceal until after she’d jumped to HP with over $60 million in performance-based pay. A series of major financial sales wins were announced under Fiorina that turned out to be completely fraudulent. In 1999, for example, Fiorina trumpeted a huge sale of up to $2.1 billion of equipment to a company called PathNet. Problem was, however, that PathNet’s annual revenue was $1.6 million and could little afford such a purchase:

In the giant PathNet deal that Fiorina oversaw, Lucent agreed to fund more than 100% of the company’s equipment purchases, meaning the small company would get both Lucent gear at no money down and extra cash to boot. Yet how could such a loan to PathNet make sense for Lucent, even based on the world as it appeared in the heady days of 1999?

It didn’t make any financial sense. Just after Fiorina’s departure, Lucent revealed that it had written $7 billion of loan deals to customers, many of them unviable startups like PathNet, which itself went bankrupt in 2001. Post-Fiorina, Lucent also collapsed as the nature of her vendor-financing deals became obvious; but she walked away with upwards of $60 million.


Her tenures at both Lucent and HP were complete debacles. HP fired Fiorina in 2005 after she led the company’s acquisition of Compaq for $25 billion — just as the conventional PC business began to die. As John Hawkins astutely observed earlier today, her track record led multiple mainstream observers to list her among the worst CEOs of all time (e.g., CBS News, USA Today, CNBC, and ABC News among others).


In a series of interviews from 2008 (when she campaigned for John McCain) to 2010 (when she unsuccessfully ran for the Senate against Barbara Boxer), Fiorina parroted left wing talking points on carbon credits, wind and solar energy sources, and the damage humans are causing to the planet via global warming. As recently as this year, she asserted that climate change is man-made. During her Senate campaign, she also refused to endorse California’s Proposition 23, which would have suspended the economy-destroying AB32 global warming law.


Fiorina has issued many admiring comments regarding the Ottoman Empire, which committed the Armenian genocide.


After the Garland, TX terror attack, Fiorina likened Pamela Geller and her group of free speech advocates to “white supremacists demonstrating” and asserted that free speech is “provocative” when it offends Islamists.


Let’s turn again to John Hawkins to wrap things up for on the matter of whether Fiorina would be a credible candidate in the general election:

After beating [conservative Chuck] DeVore [in the GOP primary] by outspending him more than 3-to1, Fiorina went toe-to-toe with charisma-free Senator Barbara Boxer and got her brains beaten in. Surprise, surprise — Fiorina’s disastrous run at Hewlett Packard turned out to be an anchor around her neck and the fact that she was such a terrible politician that she signed off on bizarre garbage like the Demon Sheep ad (IT APPEARS at 2:26) certainly didn’t help. In a year when Republicans picked up 6 Senate seats, Boxer waltzed to a 10 point victory over Fiorina.



In 2010, Erick Erickson offered an excellent summary of Fiorina’s rather bizarre positions including:

Carly’s conservative record was thin to nonexistent, and there were many troubling signs that she held liberal views. From her praise of Jesse Jackson, to her playing the race and gender cards against DeVore, to her support for the Wall Street bailouts, to her qualified support for the Obama stimulus, to her past support for taxation of sales on the Internet, to her waffling on immigration, to her support for Sonia Sotomayor, to her Master’s thesis advocating greater federal control of local education, to her past support for weakening California’s Proposition 13, to her statement to the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board that Roe v. Wade is “a decided issue,” Carly Fiorina’s oft-repeated claim to be a “lifelong conservative” was only plausible in the universe ofNRSC staffers who recruited her in the first place.

Executive Summary: there is little reason to believe that Fiorina holds any real conservative views, that she could win a general election, and that she would be a competent chief executive.

I call her “Jeb Bush in a dress”, just another cog in the GOPe machinery designed to sabotage a Cruz or a Trump.

Communist Deception Strategy

By: Brent Parrish
The Right Planet


Terca Livre Presents – Update Brazil, Episode 2: Communist Deception, hosted by Jeff Nyquist and Allan Dos Santos. On Friday, September 18th, author and researcher Nevin Gussack talk about fake disputes and hidden levels of coordination between communist states and organizations.

Nevin Gussack is the author of Sowing the Seeds of Our Destruction: Useful Idiots on the “Right” and Golitsyn Vindicated?, which examines some of the extraordinarily accurate predictions by KGB defector Anatoliy Golytsin (more on Golytsin here).

Allan Dos Santos revealed some interesting developments in Brazil. According to Santos, the Brazilian Supreme Court has cleared the way for an investigation into Brazil’s Marxist president, Dilma Rouseff, and could lead to impeachment. A very large majority of Brazilians do not support the current regime. There have been huge protests against the current Brazilian regime, with some three million people taking to the streets.

Demonstrators hold a banner reading "Out Dilma and take the PT (Workers' Party) with you. Impeachment now " during a protest against Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff in Brasilia March 15, 2015. REUTERS/Joedson Alves


Allan Dos Santos claims the Rouseff Administration is seeking the help of China and Russia, apparently in an effort to stave of the efforts at impeachment.  The Brazilian vice president and head of the Brazilian senate visited China in early September, according to Santos.

Russia and China are playing an ominously large role in Brazil, and in South America in general. China is the main economic partner of Brazil. The appointed Chinese ambassador in Brazil is a Chinese general. And the commander of the Brazilian Army used to be the Brazilian embassy military attaché to China. According to Santos, in 2008, Russia and Brazil conducted a joint military exercise.

According to anti-communist activist Olavo de Carvahlo,  Cuba and Russia have been helping Venezuela prop up the socialist regime. Cuban troops have been sent to Venezuela to assist Nicolás Maduro’s oppressive regime crack down on protests engulfing the nation. Russia and China are supporting Venezuela and all the surrounding South American countries involved with the communist think tank Sao Paulo Forum.

One of the more disturbing revelations made by Allan Dos Santos was the claim Brazilian universities are openly holding up North Korea as an example of “democracy.”




Obama’s Muslim Identity

By: Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media

An ordinary citizen who identified President Barack Obama as a Muslim at a Donald Trump town hall meeting in New Hampshire showed that media brainwashing on the subject has been futile. The people understand that Obama asserts he is a Christian, but they just aren’t buying it. Obama has done too many things to benefit Muslims to convince people that he is not one of them.

The latest example was extending an invitation to a Muslim student to come to the White House after he was detained for possessing what appeared to be a bomb. It turned out to be a clock that looked like a bomb.

Naturally, the Obama White House treated this as a case of so-called Islamophobia, when pictures of the device demonstrated that care should have been taken and law enforcement should have been called. Obama refuses to identify Islamic terrorism as Islamic terrorism, but is quick to jump to conclusions about the supposedly anti-Islamic character of the American people. This is the mark of someone who is either strongly sympathetic to Islam, or a Muslim himself.

Robert Spencer has written an excellent article about Ahmed Mohamed’s suspicious-looking device and uncooperative behavior.

Our media are denouncing Trump for failing to “correct” the citizen who identified Obama as a Muslim. They flatly assert Obama is a Christian. The issue here is not Trump but Obama.

We have corrected the record many times on this, but it seems that another explanation is warranted. Politicians can say anything about themselves, but it is up to the media to determine if those claims are true.

If Obama and his aides had a habit of telling the truth, the claim about Obama being a Christian might be assumed to be true. But as we have noted in the past, “Unfortunately for Obama and his backers, the same Obama campaign apparatus which claimed that he is a baptized Christian asserted that the mysterious ‘Frank’ in Obama’s book, Dreams from My Father, was just a black civil rights activist. It turned out that ‘Frank’ was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party member under surveillance by the FBI who served as a mentor for a young Obama in Hawaii.”

So what reason is there to believe that Obama is a Christian just because he says so? He doesn’t act or talk like a Christian, and he doesn’t go to church very often. Instead, he acts and talks like a Muslim. Obama acknowledges in Dreams from My Father that his grandfather was a Muslim (page 104) and that he spent two years in a Muslim school in Indonesia studying the Koran (page 154).

There is no evidence Obama was baptized, in any formal sense, in Jeremiah Wright’s church.  What’s more, there is no evidence that Obama ever specifically rejected Islam. Indeed, Obama could have joined Wright’s church in Chicago without disavowing the Muslim faith. Author Edward Klein notes that Wright told him that he “made it comfortable” for Obama to accept Christianity “without having to renounce his Islamic background.”

As we noted in a review of Klein’s book, Wright was asked if he converted Obama from Islam to Christianity, and Wright said, “That’s hard to tell. I think I convinced him that it was okay for him to make a choice in terms of who he believed Jesus is. And I told him it was really okay and not a putdown of the Muslim part of his family or his Muslim friends.”

Obama’s failure to attend church led us to label him “The Politician Without a Church.” We noted that “…if Obama claims to be a Christian, and the evidence suggests otherwise, it is a significant story. That’s because his alleged Christianity was a factor in his 2008 and 2012 victories.”

This is why it’s significant that the American people still aren’t buying the notion of Obama’s alleged Christianity. People have recognized a truth about Obama that the Obama campaign, White House, and the media have tried their best to conceal.

Trump doesn’t challenge anti-Muslim questioner at event” is how CNN framed the controversy over the Trump event in New Hampshire. The questioner asserted that Obama is a Muslim and that Muslims want to kill Americans. Is that anti-Muslim?

The British Guardian ran the headline, “Donald Trump fails to correct questioner who calls Obama Muslim.”

CBS News ran the story, “Trump declines to correct man who says Obama is Muslim.”

If Obama had demonstrated his Christianity through actions and statements, and if there was indisputable evidence that he was baptized a Christian and rejected Islam, the media might have a point.

In this case, they do not. The behavior of the media is far more objectionable than a simple observation, based on the facts as he perceived them, from an American citizen about the American President.

The record is clear: Obama has lied about his Marxist and Muslim backgrounds. The American people have every right to be suspicious of him.


#GOPDebate: Abortion ‘folk hero’ cited by MSM to bash Carson/Trump

Donald Trump and Ben Carson during GOP Debate via NPR

The mainstream media has been using highly partisan pro-vaccine advocates to discredit Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson in the wake of an exchange they had during the presidential debate on Sept. 16, 2015.

The ongoing discussion over whether childhood vaccinations are linked to autism – or whether the vaccine schedule for small children including infants is too vigorous is valid, particularly considering recent revelations made by Congressman Bill Posey.

An illustration of the vitriol surrounding this issue can be found anytime someone questions whether there is a possible connection with childhood vaccination and Autism. For example, U.S. Congressman Dan Burton, who “chaired several hearings on vaccines and autism” believes that there is “no question” that “mercury in vaccinations” causes neurological problems. But like Carson and Trump, Burton was quickly shut down during a discussion with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

However, this article is not addressing the science of vaccines but the anti-scientific, biased, partisan and overtly political media response to the exchange between Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson.

Consider some of the headlines, largely based on an Associated Press “fact check” report by Calvin Woodward and David Crary:

Each and every one of the above articles quotes Karen Remley, a pro-abortion “folk hero” who was selected to lead the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) by president Sandra G. Hassink, who backed California legislation to force parents into submitting to vaccinating their children.

In 2012, former head of the Virginia Department of Health Karen Remley resigned over “contentious regulations [which] require[d] the state’s existing abortion clinics to be regulated like newly constructed hospitals.” The regulations were certified by then-Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s office. They were also approved by the State Board of Health.

But  Karen Remley evidently does not believe that abortion clinics should have standards and quit over the issue, making Remley a “folk hero” in pro-abortion circles. The author mentions this only to show that Remley, like many “experts” used by the press, are highly partisan.

In fact, Karen Remley was appointed to head of the Virginia Department of Health by former Democratic Gov. Tim Kaine, “a close political friend” of President Obama.
