As many of you know I began blogging 12 years ago when I became interested in educating Americans about just how the process of Refugee Resettlement works in our country.
My work began when refugees were being quietly placed in nearby Hagerstown, Maryland and I simply wanted to know how the program works and who is paying for it.
My curiosity turned into an obsession with nearly an every day investigation into the federal program and related issues surrounding the Leftwing Open Borders goal of changing America by changing the people.
RRW was funded by no one, and so my work has been my charitable contribution to our great country.
RRW was filled with facts and financial data, reports on the refugee contractors, government information and reports on communities that were being targeted with resettlement (with a few horror stories about immigrant criminals/crooks/terrorists sprinkled in).
The way things are going now, I shouldn’t be surprised that the power on the Left has managed to silence that blog with its nearly 9,000 posts! I just wonder why now?
If WordPress, which was hosting RRW, had such a problem with my content wouldn’t they have looked into it at some point over the last dozen years! And, why now when I hadn’t been actively writing there for more than a half a year! Was my archived data such a threat to whomever was complaining to WordPress?
(See my postin January about why I began writing ‘Frauds and Crooks.‘)
And, to top it off, they gave me no warning!
One day a reader was planning to look for something there and got this notice. (See my post on July 1,here).
I contacted WordPress then to ask what was going on and got this (below) e-mail response after I noticed all data collection at RRW had stopped in mid-June. So….
When were they going to tell me they had shut down my work?
I don’t want to lose you, my faithful readers, and I expect to get a new website up somewhere else, but I need to know where to find you! So if ‘Frauds and Crooks’disappears send me your e-mail address!
As one of my friends joked—we might have to invest in mimeograph machines and postage stamps if the Speech Police continue their rampage!
I’ve been meaning to tell you that you must get James Simpson’s new book anyway, but in light of themysterious disappearance***of Refugee Resettlement Watch it is even more important.
Simpson’s slim volume is a comprehensive look at the immigration crisis and the agenda behind it. It is full of facts and figures and goes beyond anything I had published about the federal contractors and other ‘charitable’ groups helping drive the agenda; and it is all in one place!
Get the book (they aren’t confiscating books yet!) and a yellow hi-lighter and go through it as if it was a text book.
Then use what you learn to become an activist for America First where you live!
It is no use to simply acquire knowledge, shake your head, and then do nothing!
Go hereand get your copy! And, then find an active role for yourself!
*** Still no response from WordPress as of this morning!
Tomorrow marks 12 years since I launched Refugee Resettlement Watch, and although I do all of my new writing hereat ‘Frauds and Crooks’, faithful readers know that the site was still available with nearly 9,000 posts for research purposes.
Until just recently that is….
I’m waiting to hear why WordPress has suspended that successful educational blog after all these years. I’ve reached out for an explanation and am still hoping it is some simple thing involving something like billing.
This is what you will find if you try to visit RRWtoday:
I sure hope to be updating you soon with a report that it was all an error.
I am terrible at keeping up with reviewing comments. I write a post and then dash off to do some other work hanging over my head and often don’t get back to the computer for hours, sometimes not until the next day. So if you have been wondering why you don’t see your comments, that is the usual reason.
However, yesterday I discovered that wordpress has been busily dumping comments into a spam folder, even from those of you who have been regular visitors! I retrieved a few, but promise to keep a closer eye on that in the future.
Visit the Blog itself!
You probably noticed that I have added a feature that simply gives you an introduction to the post and asks that you continue to Frauds and Crooks for the rest of the story. That is because I want you to notice information in the sidebar including an ‘about,’ categories where posts are archived and my twitter feed.
Even if you aren’t on twitter you can see what I’m posting there with my comments.
Use the tags!
You will see at the end of each post, the post is categorized and tagged. If you see a tag for your state, click on it and you will see other posts about news in your state. After awhile I plan to do a survey to see which states have the most stories about frauds, crooks and criminals!
Ideas for what to do!
I’ve been trying to add suggestions at the end of each post on what you might do about the news. However, some news simply doesn’t lend itself to action suggestions. Some are just so dreadful all you can do is shake your head in disgust.
Thanks as always for following Frauds and Crooks! And, let me know what I can improve!
That is what D.A. King reported on his Immigration Politics Georgia website earlier this month in the wake of an Appellate court decision.
The gist of the decision is that Georgia does not have any responsibility to allow those illegal aliens known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients to attend college on the taxpayer’s dime.
DACA kids are not lawfully present says the court, they only have their removal deferred at the moment!
Below is a bit of King’s report.
But first, his website is a reminder of what you all should be doing in your states as King explains,
ImmigrationPoliticsGA.com was created in late 2018 with personal funds in an effort to provide news and opinion now mostly muffled and hidden by the MSM in Georgia.
It’s been two months and a day since I Welcomed youto my new blog! Thanks to all of you who follow my writing!
As you know I got tired and bored writing mostly about the US Refugee Admissions Programat RRWfor over 11 years (over 9,000 posts archived there!), and frankly don’t see any serious reform for that flawed program on the horizon.***
I just checked the refugee admissions data for this fiscal year and see that, yes, the numbers are low, but with a big spike in the last month.
Also, we know that the Trump State Department has funded all nine resettlement contractors when we previously had heard that at least two were going to be cut loose from the federal dole.
All nine will still exist (ready and waiting!) to make up for what they will say are the Trump lost years whenever a new president is elected.
Then yesterday we learned that the administration has extended temporary refugee protection for Haitians, Salvadorans, Nicaraguans and Sudanese and the Catholic religious Left activists are overjoyed!
I’m telling you all this not to discourage you, but to encourage you to shift gears a bit and figure out what else you can do for America.
You can still be a supporter of President Trump, but you must be willing to be vocal and tell him when he goes wrong!
Back to Frauds and Crooks…..
My thinking in creating this new blog is that I believe all of us (or at least most of us), no matter where you are on the political spectrum, do not want to be ripped-off!
We are stuck with our American cheats and criminals, but it is especially outrageous to be scammed and defrauded by ‘new Americans!’
For new readers if you are wondering about my use of the phrase ‘new Americans’ it goes back to the Obama years when the president was promoting his White House Task Force on New Americans, here.
Of course the phrase ‘new Americans’ had been around before Obama began promoting it about five years ago, but you will now see it used widely as the Left’s way of lumping all migrants to America (legal and illegal) together by referring to them all as ‘new Americans.’
That is just one of many ways the Left controls the language, so I see my job as taking away some of the positive glow they are trying to surround all immigrants with when they use that phrase.
We are told in the biased media that we must welcome all (no matter whether they are good people or bad). No discernment allowed goes the theory or be prepared to be called a racist and a hater (as the Southern Poverty Law Centersays of me).
And, finally, I admit, this blog is much more fun to write because there is so much more material available!
So far I’ve written 104 posts! I know that many of you see my posts in your e-mails, but it’s a good idea to visit the blog itselffrom time to time. (Sorry again to those of you who have for some strange and unexplained reason been unable to subscribe.)
In the right hand sidebar, you can see which posts are ‘trending.’ You will also see I am building categories in which posts are archived by subject so that later you can look back at all posts that are in that category.
I’m tagging by state so we can find out someday which one has the most frauds, crooks and criminals!
My twitter feed is there too, but I have to admit it is easy to get discouraged at twitter because every time I come close to reaching a new ‘follower’ milestone, it is as if they have some algorithm that stops my momentum and they begin removing followers. I teeter between 15.2 thousand and 15.3 thousand and have languished there for months if not a year.
Because some of you have asked, I’ve added a donation button to the right hand sidebar.
At the end of many posts you will see something like this (with a question mark):
So what can you do? First, don’t get discouraged! Find your small place in the ‘Make America Great Again’ movement (Trump or no Trump) and work at it every day. I have to hand it to the progressives, to the Left, they plug away at their goals, day after day, year after year to change America. We have to be more like them in that regard. But, to survive, because it isn’t in our nature to be manipulative, make sure that what you choose to do is sustainable and fun (in a weird sort of way).
***I didn’t really take any break between writing RRWand launching Frauds and Crooks, but wrote for another publication under a pen name.
Addendum: I’m going to try a little harder to use my facebook. I got disgusted with them when in order for me to post on my Refugee Resettlement Watch facebook page, they demanded a screenshot of my drivers license! Who would send facebook their drivers license? Not me!
I see a co-administrator is still posting there,check it out!
