Sessions’ List of 20 ‘Vetted’ Refugees Turned to Terrorism…

In 2016, future Attorney General (then senator) Jeff sessions spoke out against the increase in immigration from troubled countries. He gave a list of 20 vetted refugees that ended up being radicalized.

This doesn’t necessarily justify Trump administration policies but it does add some nuance to the mainstream narrative that open immigration is natural and

Abood, an Iraqi translator for the U.S. military, was admitted to the United States through the Special Immigrant Visa program for Iraqi translators in 2009, and subsequently became a citizen. Abood enlisted in the Army and went through basic training at Fort Jackson in 2010, but left for unknown reasons. According to court documents, after being prevented from boarding an international flight, Abood told FBI agents that he intended to go to Iraq to visit family. Subsequently, Abood left the United States through Mexico and then traveled through various countries to get to Syria to join ISIS.

Al Hardan – a Palestinian born in Iraq – was admitted to the United States as a refugee in 2009, and obtained a green card in 2011. When applying to become a U.S. citizen, he knowingly responded, certified, and swore untruthfully that he was not associated with a terrorist organization when, in fact, he associated with members and sympathizers of ISIS throughout 2014. During an interview in October 2015, Al Hardan falsely represented that he had never received any type of weapons training, when in fact he had received automatic machine gun training.

[and] [t]hrough his clan lineage, Ibrahim was related to known Somali terrorists[.]” Ibrahim also admitted he lied on his citizenship application by having previously lied on his refugee application by falsely claiming that he had not provided material support to a terrorist group, when he had in fact provided material support in the form of cash to an Al-Shabaab member.

The United States Government is the Worst!

The U.S. military fired thousands of rounds of depleted uranium munitions on the battlefield in Iraq and Syria.

The United States Used Depleted Uranium in Syria and Iraq | Foreign Policy

Officials have confirmed that the U.S. military, despite vowing not to use depleted uranium weapons on the battlefield in Iraq and Syria, fired thousands of rounds of the munitions during two high-profile raids on oil trucks in Islamic State-controlled Syria in late 2015. The air assaults mark the first confirmed use of this armament since the 2003 Iraq invasion, when it was used hundreds of thousands of times, setting off outrage among local communities, which alleged that its toxic material caused cancer and birth defects.

U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) spokesman Maj. Josh Jacques told Airwars and Foreign Policy that 5,265 armor-piercing 30 mm rounds containing depleted uranium (DU) were shot from Air Force A-10 fixed-wing aircraft on Nov. 16 and Nov. 22, 2015, destroying about 350 vehicles* in the country’s eastern desert.

Earlier in the campaign, both coalition and U.S. officials said the ammunition had not and would not be used in anti-Islamic State operations. In March 2015, coalition spokesman John Moore said, “U.S. and coalition aircraft have not been and will not be using depleted uranium munitions in Iraq or Syria during Operation Inherent Resolve.” Later that month, a Pentagon representative told War is Boring that A-10s deployed in the region would not have access to armor-piercing ammunition containing DU because the Islamic State didn’t possess the tanks it is designed to penetrate.

Typical New York Times: Emphasizing Racial Divisions, Covering for Corporatism

Race–baiting: “the unfair use of statements about race to try to influence the actions or attitudes of a particular group of people.”

This is typical of the New York Times’ race baiting.

After the author goes “slumming it” undercover at a rural Michigan Walmart she concludes that the white, working poor voted for Trump because of resentment at the loss of their white privilege.

I wonder if she had moonlighted at a majority black or South Asian-staffed Walmart in suburban Maryland, Virginia or Pennsylvania her conclusions would have been different.

By focusing on just the white working poor, the author’s goal is to increase racial divisions in the working class, to divide them and distract from the political and media establishments’ roles in turning our country into a 3rd world, banana republic for corporate exploitation.

Is she trying to imply that if they just hadn’t been so blinded by their own racist reactions to globalist Darwinism, they would have voted for Hillary Clinton?

The author doesn’t explain how these race-blind 2008 voters, that helped elect Obama, are white supremacists 8 years later.

She also doesn’t take into account that they might not have voted for Hillary for many non-racist reasons, including how Hillary’s husband passed NAFTA, and after 8 years in office her would-be White House predecessor doubled the national debt (to “bail-out” banks) and created less than 3% growth with 95% of new jobs being part-time, temp or contract.

The Washington Post works hard to distract from the fact that the American Dream has faded for the entire working class, not just a particular race, and that fading was designed to benefit global corporations and the oligarchs that own them.

 

White Resentment on the Night Shift at Walmart

“Seven years ago, I joined the night shift at a Walmart in rural Michigan. For $8.10 an hour, I spent four or five nights a week filling shelves with the flour and sugar and marshmallow fluff that residents of the local county, which in 2008 voted for Barack Obama, needed to get through the holidays. Four years ago, the county went with President Obama a second time, though by a thinner margin. But this past November, the county, like the state, turned red.”

It sounds like a conspiracy theory, but it’s true: There really are 10 companies that control most of the food and drinks you’ll find in the grocery store. Between them, these giants—whose revenues add up to more than a billion dollars a day—own hundreds of common brands, from Cheerios to Ben & Jerry’s, Odwalla to Tropicana.

Lost in security concerns are the economic costs to taxpayers of refugee resettlement « Refugee Resettlement Watch

Trump on immigration: Mexico is beating us. Mexico is laughing at us.

Ann Corcoran on February 5, 2017

I told you recently that the Office of Refugee Resettlement had published its 2015 Annual Report to Congress (a year late, but much better than when it was three years late earlier in RRW’s history).

If any of you citizen investigators want a winter research project, study the whole document and see what other information you can find. (Look back at some previous reports too, see here).

Below are some charts from the report (beginning on page 16) that are very instructive. And, remember readers they survey refugees and often don’t hear back from them, so I expect the numbers could even be worse then they are here (from “responding household,” those willing to talk)—and here they are bad!

By the way, when the Leftist Open Borders gang publishes economic studies that claim that refugees bring economic boom times to struggling communities, they surely don’t factor in the cost of welfare use by refugees (or the education costs, or the criminal justice system costs). LOL!, maybe they figure federal welfare dollars (grown on trees in Washington) flowing to certain communities are income to the community.

Refugee Resetlement Costs

Let’s take SNAP for example (that is food stamps).  Note that 92.5% of refugees who arrived in 2015 went on food stamps, but of those admitted in 2011, 60% are still on food stamps 5 years later!

Interesting too is the figure for housing assistance. Newly arriving refugees get very little, but after they have been here for awhile (see 2011) they find the housing assistance.

Also, note that as they are here longer, more refugees find SSI (for aged, blind, disabled or poor people generally).

NSFW: Triggered, Old-School Astorians’ Pro-Trump Rant (shocking?)

Is it possible that there’s a substantial portion of the population not being portrayed in the media that see things differently?

This is a highlight from Shia Labeouf’s HWNDU project.
Warning: Bad language, offensive words, and non-leftist political views.

“I have a message for Chelsea Handler, you dirty drunken whore (she’s the TV host who said Melania Trump could “barely speak English”). “How dare you insult our First Lady? She doesn’t speak English? Huh? She speaks five languages, you drunken whore b*tch. I’m calling you out.”

“And Madonna you’re a whore, you think you were gonna suck d*ck for Clinton? You should be in jail for threatening to blow up the White House, you stupid b*tch.”

“And George Clooney, oh Mr. tolerant – when they said they were sending Syrian refugees to your place in Italy, to your neighborhood, you had a sh*t fit. Why not open your door and let them in, bro?”

“And too bad Shia you didn’t go to central booking last night to get your butt cheeks divided, you wanna talk about being divided?”

(“I wrote that joke”, his friend chimes in).

“Robert DeNiro – you play a mobster Robert DeNiro – you ain’t no mobster – you’re a herb bro (a herb is a bullsh*tter). You wanted to fight Trump, bro? Punch him in the face? Trump will beat your ass, boy.”

“And all you people who don’t know, George Soros is financing all these protests, he’s a traitor, he’s public enemy number one, that guy destroyed economies, he has caused most of the poverty in the world.”

“Oh and for all the Jewish people, because I’m half Jewish by the way, you know George Soros turned over so many Jews to the Nazis, he betrayed his own people – a couple of thousand Jews died because of him, do you know that Shia LeBeouf – aren’t you Jewish? George Soros turned over Jews to the Nazis, bro – and you people are supporting him?”

Here’s Who Funded Shut Down Of Milo Yiannopoulos At Berkeley | The Daily Caller

George Soros quote: "Deliberately misleading propaganda techniques can destroy an open society."

Chuck Ross  02/03/2017

The Alliance for Global Justice, based in Tucson, is listed as an organizer and fiscal sponsor for Refuse Fascism, a communist group that encouraged left-wingers to shut down the Yiannopoulos event.

While it is unclear whether those who carried out the violence were paid to do so, the benefactors of the Alliance for Global Justice — and Refuse Fascism — are listed online.

According to its most recent 990 tax form, Alliance for Global Justice (AfGJ) received $2.2 million in funding for the fiscal year ending in March 2016.

One of the group’s biggest donors is the Tides Foundation, a non-profit funded by billionaire progressive philanthropist George Soros. Tides gave AfGJ $50,000.

The United Steel Workers labor union also contributed $5,000. The city of Tucson is also listed in AfGJ’s 990 as a donor, but a city official says that the city acted merely as a pass-through for a Native American tribe that provided a grant to the activist group. The city official said that no city money went to AfGJ.

Charities associated with several major corporations also donated. Patagonia.org, the outdoor apparel and equipment company, gave $40,000. The Ben & Jerry Foundation, the charity associated with the ice cream maker, gave $20,000. And Lush Cosmetic gave $43,950.

Another bit of irony is seen in the $5,000 contribution from the Peace Development Fund, a group that claims to support organizations that fight for human rights and social justice.

Another major donation came from a group that was chaired by Hillary Clinton during the 1980s. The New World Foundation gave $52,000 to AfGJ.
