For those of you who follow immigration issues, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s comments this past week are no surprise. The only surprise might be that she is so ‘honest’ about why the Dems are for Open Borders.
While most of us led our lives, went to work, raised our children, the Democrat/Socialist activists got up every day and worked tirelessly to quietly change America by changing the people.
Their work is now bearing fruit while we play catch-up.
John Binder writing at Breitbarttells us what we already know—New Americans vote for Democrats—but his story from Thursday is a must read.
I was excited to see that Big League Politics (most recently famous for publishing the Virginia Governor Northam blackface photo), dug deeper into my storyfrom a week ago about the Somali refugee ‘youths’ we raised with our taxpayer generosity who said s**** the American Dream and left Minnesota to become jihadists.
How Robert Mueller’s FBI Allowed Minnesota to Become a Somali Terror Hub
As Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) agitates against the Jews as a Congresswoman, the Minneapolis Somali community has emerged as the foremost terrorist hot spot of the United States.
This influx of Somali migrants is threatening the national security of the United States and is being enabled by far-left Democratic legislators such as Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) who, unsurprisingly, are happy to kowtow to these hostile invaders for votes and campaign cash.
However, the problem goes far deeper than mere pandering Democratic politicians. It is a bipartisan issue, as the Somalian migrant influx picked up during the Bush years. It was the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) under the stewardship of Director Robert Mueller that dropped the ball following the Sept. 11 attacks when the Bureau should have been at its most vigilant.
Organizations like Church World Services, Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, the National Association of Evangelicals’ World Relief Corp, and other nominally private religious organizations have soaked up tens of millions in federal funds to resettle so-called refugees as a result of Bush’s “faith-based initiative” policies. According to a WorldNetDailyreport, the Bush administration resettled 49,613 Somalis per the U.S. State Department’s refugee database primarily to the state of Minnesota, which has apparently been designated as a Somali hub by the central planners of this refugee madness. Serving as FBI director for nearly five years under Obama, Mueller was responsible for much of the 47,500 Somali refugees who were resettled during his presidency as well.
Refugee resettlement expert Ann Corcoran pointed out that it is the FBI’s lax mentality that has allowed this issue to fester and become a bona fide national security threat. She points to a particularly telling quote from a federal official as reported by FOX News.
“Based on historical experience, we had (an uptick) in 2007 and 2008 going for al-Shabab, then a lull. Then, as ISIS came back, we saw a whole bunch of people no longer headed for Somalia. They were headed for Iraq and Syria. That really caught us off-guard, we didn’t see that coming. It didn’t make sense to us. We understood why kids were going back to Somalia, but going to Syria was another… issue,” a federal official said to Fox News.
Much more here. And, again, I can’t say how thrilled I am to see a reporter actually do some serious digging!
To my despairing friends in Minnesota, there is a silver lining! The country needs to know what has happened and what is happening there and this pair (on full display) will do more to educate all Americans than all the words of warning we could write.
About the photo: there are surprisingly few photos of Omar and Klobuchar together (this one was on Omar’s twitter account), so make sure you link the two every chance you get!
Ilhan Omar apologizes to Jewish groups for hurt caused by AIPAC tweet
In a brief confidential conference call with Jewish organizations, Rep. Ilhan Omar apologized for any hurt caused by her tweets suggesting that AIPAC pays politicians to support Israel.
“Let me reiterate my sincere apology for any actualhurt my words have caused,” Omar, a freshman Democratic congresswoman from Minnesota, said on Tuesday afternoon, according to someone present on the call.
“I know there are a lot of people who in the last weeks have expressed support in trying to say this isn’t anti-Semitic or this shouldn’t be looked at in that way,” she added.
But Omar said it is up to the Jewish community to define anti-Semitism.
“I do not want to give space or energy to anyone who wants to minimize the hurt,” she said.
Omar came under fire last week for posting successive tweets suggesting that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the pro-Israel lobby, pays politicians to be pro-Israel. Democratic and Republican leaders condemned the tweets as echoing anti-Semitic stereotypes about Jews, money and power. The allegation is also false, as AIPAC does not donate to candidates or endorse them.
Omar subsequently apologized for the tweets.
The call Tuesday included a range of centrist and liberal Jewish groups including the Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish Democratic Council of America, the refugee resettlement agency HIAS, Americans for Peace Now and Bend the Arc.
Omar kept her remarks brief but promised to meet face to face with the groups in the near future.
Meanwhile Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan told Omar not to apologize,see here.
A prominent refugee espousing views that are deemed anti-Semitic is someone HIAS needs to shut the heck up!
Keep talking Ilhan!
Here is something you can do (and probably are doing!) especially you Minnesotans, find every word she has uttered in her meteoric rise to power there and publish those words (and actions)— focus especially on those words that educate people about Islam. Do it in a drip, drip fashion in order to keep her in the news.
Okay, okay, I’m at least thankful that a national cable news outlet is finally getting around to the US Somali refugee radicalization problem that has been going on for at least twelve years, but I want to scream about how long it takes for the national media to catch up with serious issues like this one.
And, I guess we should be thankful that Ilhan Omar was elected to Congress, because her words and actions have become a focal point (a news hook) for stories like this one.
I honestly think she does us a great service by being in Congress—let her keep talking!
I can’t and won’t write a book here, but everyone should take time to read the Fox story, and to read about my trip to Washington in 2009when I attended a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing on the radicalization of Minnesota Somalis.
You will see that the FBI brushed off the idea of any Islamic connection and spokesmen testifying were fixated on their main point—the poor disenfranchised refugee “youths” were going back to defend Somalia from Ethiopian aggression (Move along, nothing to see about a broader reason for jihad recruitment).
Who headed the FBI in 2009? Robert Mueller.
And, by the way, Senator Amy Klobuchar never set foot into that hearing room that day even though she had constituents testifying!
Not a surprise that Klobuchar wants nothing to do with any suggestion that her Somali voters could be terrorists or have a radical agenda. Watch her pander!
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – More men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country.
FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined. And as of 2018, a dozen more had been arrested with the intention of leaving to support ISIS. Both numbers are far higher than those of alleged terrorist wannabes who left or attempted to leave the country from other areas in the country where Muslim refugees have been resettled.
In the case of the Somalis, it’s no longer just the men. Early last year, a female was apprehended by authorities on charges of supporting providing material support to Al Qaeda and arson.
So what has made the area such a hotbed for such activity? And what has been Rep. Ilhan Omar’s record in addressing the issue – either before she was elected, or since?
The answers matter because federal authorities say they remain “highly concerned” about the terrorist connection with the Minneapolis Somalis – even though al-Shabab is struggling against the Somali government, and the so-called ISIS “caliphate” has crumbled under a sustained U.S.-led military campaign.
“We are very conscious that there may still be fertile ground for that, and that is could re-start at any time,” one federal official told Fox News. “Based on historical experience, we had (an uptick) in 2007 and 2008 going for al-Shabab, then a lull. Then, as ISIS came back, we saw a whole bunch of people no longer headed for Somalia. They were headed for Iraq and Syria. That really caught us off-guard, we didn’t see that coming. It didn’t make sense to us. We understood why kids were going back to Somalia, but going to Syria was another we (sic) issue.”
I can’t tell you how much that last paragraph above pisses me off!
The reason they were surprised is that they had completely focused, during Robert Mueller’s tenure at the FBI, on the idea that the kidswere only going home to fight for Somalia, not as jihadists for Islam!
And, again, here is the linkto my post on attending that Senate hearing a decade ago! If you are really ambitious, you can read dozens of my posts (beginning in 2008) on the “missing Somali youths”hereat RRW.
Now what do you do? Help spread the Fox News story and while you are at it send out the 2-minute video showing Klobuchar pandering to her Somali fans.
One of the most maddening things one observes when following the US Refugee Admissions Program is that the word “refugee” has been so bastardized by the Left that it has no real meaning.
Everyone on the move in the world is not a refugee!
To be a legitimate refugee one must have a credible fear of being PERSECUTED if returned to the country of one’s persecution—in Omar’s case Somalia.
Yet, time and again, we see refugees popping “home” to take care of unfinished financial business, like selling a house, visiting grandma, or carrying money back in suitcases!
Where is the fear?
In case you are one of those Americans (there are many because I’ve heard from them!) who were under the impression that refugees go home when the conflict (or whatever) that allowed them to come live here is over, you are misinformed.
‘Refugees’ are here permanently!
No wonder when the average American learns even the most rudimentary bits of information about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program shock turns to sneering disgust.
We are being played!
Yesterday, PJ Media published a lengthy and detailed expose’ on newly elected Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar that is worth reading. Did you know that Nancy Pelosi will allow her to sit on the Foreign Relations Committee!
You need to read it all, but for my purposes, the information about her trips to Somalia put a lie to her fear of persecution that supposedly was the reason she and her extended family are here in the first place.
PJ Media (hat tip: Paul):
Any significant involvement by a U.S. citizen in Somalia’s election process would likely raise eyebrows at America’s intelligence agencies.
On December 20, 2016, just a few weeks after her election to Minnesota’s state legislature, Ilhan Omar was in Mogadishu with then-President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, a favorite for re-election. He reportedly invited her to appear with him prior to the election taking place.
Omar likely met at least one other Somali presidential candidate on her trip. According to a speech by her soon-to-be husband Ahmed Hirsi, Ilhan had just flown from Nairobi to Mogadishuon a plane with former Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed, known as “Farmaajo” (“Cheese”).
Farmaajo — a U.S. citizen who, inconceivably, had boarded that plane as a Buffalo, NY, cubicle employee of the New York Department of Transportation — was the eventual surprise winner of Somalia’s presidency on February 8, 2017.
