This post isn’t going to be one of those juicy crime stories I enjoy writing (and you enjoy reading!), but this news is worth your time and consideration.
It is a story about the Left eating its own….
Perhaps one of the most important and consistent themes in my writing since I first became aware of the refugee program and immigration issues generally has been my focus on fake non-profit groups with increasing (often ruthless) political power disguised under what I call a “white hat of humanitarianism.”
I call them fake because the they don’t have enough private charitable support, but get their financial (and thus political!) power by using our money—the US taxpayers’ money!
They use OUR money to promote their extreme Leftwing political agenda!
Just a few days ago, I told you again about David Miliband, the CEO of the financially largest of the government-funded resettlement contractors bashing the President while he is paid over $800,000 a year as a non-profit CEO!
What does he do that is more valuable to us than the President, the VEEP, US Senators or Supreme Court Justices who make only a fraction of what he does!
So, therefore this is kind of a fun story as the Leftists attack each other in Oregon.
After following the activities of the US Refugee Resettlement Agencies—the nine federal contractors largely funded by you and me (the taxpayers)—I can say with absolute certainty that this is a foolish idea.
However, I am surprised this is the first time I’m seeing anyone suggest this (publicly) because you know that the nine (six are supposedly ‘religious’ charities) would love nothing better than to be paid for taking care of hundreds of thousands of additional migrants on a per head basis!
If you are new to Frauds and Crooks and had never seen Refugee Resettlement Watch, here (below) are the nine federally-funded resettlement agencies. We had for some time heard that the Trump Administration was going to dump a couple of the CONTRACTORS, but they never did. Several of these fake non-profits are as much as 90+ per cent federally-funded.
Before I get to the news about this horrible idea, remember that refugees have supposedly made the case that they would be persecuted if returned to their home country. Asylum seekers on the other hand, may or may not be able to prove their case, yet this proposal pushes us one step closer to the Open Borders agitators’ primary objective to convince the naive public that anyone on the move anywhere in the world is a legitimate refugee.
By the way, the Senate’s Gang of Eight bill from several years ago, that would have given amnesty to illegal aliens, would also have given these nine contractors an expanded role (and more money!) to help the newly amnestied get signed up for their ‘services’ (aka welfare).
What is going on in North Carolina? I often hear people from the Northeast say they are heading down to live/retire in the Carolinas to get away from high taxes and liberal government policies, but I would think really long and hard about choosing North Carolina.
The political Leftwing is working day and night, year after year, to change North Carolina (by changing the people!). When I was writing at Refugee Resettlement Watch I was puzzled by the push for more refugees to be placed there and I even noted that some world famous Islamic terrorists like KSM went to college in the Tar Heel State.
As I noted the other day, North Carolina, even under Donald Trump, is the fifth most ‘welcoming’ refugee resettlement state in the nation.
Yesterday, I was out and about running errands (Errands! Drive me crazy sometimes!) and so I heard a little bit of Rush during my travels.
He was reporting on a bombshell report by investigative reporter Paul Sperry about how the Leftwing media echo chamber works.
The Progressives know how to manipulate language!
You’ve seen how the media picks up words over the years and that word is repeated far and wide in an effort to stick it to a particular political figure the Left doesn’t like. Surely you remember “gravitas”*** and more recently “collusion.”
Heck, even the phrase “new American” which I have pointed out on many occasions is surely the work of the word-manipulators and is used to erase in the minds of uninformed Americans any distinction between illegal aliens, refugees, and other legal immigrants—they are all the same—warm, fuzzy, and to be welcomed “new Americans.”
This morning when I watched my usual 15 minutes of CNN(I want to know where they are going every day), I laughed and was reminded of Rush’s discussion yesterday of this important investigation by Sperry.
Medicaid provides health coverage to millions of Americans, including eligible low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities. Medicaid is administered by states, according to federal requirements. The program is funded jointly by states and the federal government.
And, according to the feds last analysis 65.9 million (‘poor’) people are covered. That is over 20% of the entire US population! And, if the ‘progressives’ at the ACLU have their way that number will rise.
I’ve been writing about Medicaid (and Medicare) fraud, and this is one more example of the expansion of these fraud-ridden programs as part of the Left’s agenda to move America toward a socialist form of government. (Don’t miss Leo Hohmann’s call to armsin my previous post.)
Jafar Vows to Remain in Burlington Council Race Despite Sexist Tweets
Mohamed Jafar vowed to stay in the race for Burlington’s South District city council seat despite a VTDigger.org storypublished Monday that described a series of sexist tweets the candidate had sent as recently as 2015.
“I sincerely apologize to those I’ve offended. I sincerely apologize to those who were really surprised” by the tweets, Jafar, 22, told Seven Days. “My personality and character have evolved since then.”
Though he was contrite on Monday, Jafar, a Progressive running on a platform of equality and civic engagement, said that there’s “no chance” he’d withdraw from the race as a result of the revelations.
In the race for the South End seat, Jafar faces incumbent Joan Shannon, a Democrat, and Paco DeFrancis, an independent. Shannon and DeFrancis each told VTDigger.org that they were troubled by the tweets.
Progs contacted by Seven Days on Monday appear to be standing by their man. Councilor Ali Dieng (D/P-Ward 7) said he was initially disappointed by the tweets but would continue to support the candidate. Dieng has campaigned for and spoken publicly in support of Jafar. Both men are New Americans; Jafar is Somali and was born in a Kenyan refugee camp.He was 7 when his family immigrated to the U.S.
Dieng noted that Jafar was young when he tapped out the offensive tweets. “Where the mistake was made, it was based on someone who came from a place where women are considered lower class — in Africa, especially in Muslim countries,” Dieng said. “His life has definitely shown he has changed.”
