Find out what’s going on in your community with ‘refugee resettlement’

RefugeeAgendaProgressiveListAmerican Thinker, by Carol Brown, Oct. 16, 2015:

Muslim invaders are arriving in cities and towns across America, with many more to come. Perhaps you’ve seen your town transformed. If not, you soon may. It’s call “refugee resettlement” which is code for transplanting entire communities from hellholes in the Middle East to once beautiful towns and neighborhoods across America.

There are many things we all need to know to ward off this systematic destruction of our communities, and indeed our country. Below you will find vital information, including ways to take action. First I will explain some of the factors that impact how invaders wind up where they do.

Preferred Communities Program (PCP):  This program targets small towns and rural areas for refugee resettlement. The rationalization is that these settings are best suited to attend to the myriad needs of refugees as compared to large cities, and that smaller communities are more welcoming to refugees. PCP collaborates with the Office of Refugee Resettlement and partner agencies to identify communities they deem most ideal for refugee resettlement. Here’s the deal: Small towns and rural communities often have easy access to public assistance programs. That’s it. It’s all about where to get free money and services. (That’s how you wind up with pockets of Somalis in places like Wyoming.) Meanwhile, conservative areas of the country are being targeted, helping to turn red states to blue. For additional information on PCP, including lists of designated “preferred communities,” see here and here.

Welcoming Communities: These communities fall under the umbrella of “Welcoming America,” an organization devoted to refugee support. See their mission statement: “Welcoming America inspires people to build a different kind of community– one that embraces immigrants and fosters opportunity for all. We are leading a movement of inclusive communities across the nation becoming more prosperous by making everyone who lives there feel like they belong.” The vision for this organization is about importing increasing numbers of migrants under the banner of diversity, inclusion, and prosperity — a trio of politically correct buzzwords that appeal to the brainwashed masses. The “different kind of community” to which they refer is part of the fundamental transformation. (As I wrote about in a recent blog, Boise, Idaho, is a “welcoming community.”)

Wilson-Fish (WF):  This program shifts control and decision-making power from the states to the federal government on issues pertaining to refugee resettlement and the provision of public and private services to refugees. There are currently 13 WF states:  Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Nevada, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Vermont. San Diego County, CA, is also a designated WF region. As you will notice, the majority of these states are red states. What’s up with their governors? We need to educate them. (WF is one reason why Idaho, of all places, is a hot spot for Muslim conquest.) If you live in a WF state, lobbying against refugee resettlement will be a bit more complex since your governor does not have direct authority to make decisions on this issue. In order to do so, he or she would first need to change the status of the state so it was no longer a WF state. To learn more about WF see here.

Charities, Corporations, and the Chamber of Commerce:  There is money to be made off of invaders in the form of cheap labor for business and large grants for charities. Many of the organizations reaping these benefits are integrally involved in the programs discussed above. It is crucial to find out who the corporate and non-profit players are in your community so you can apply pressure on them to cease and desist.

There are many more individuals (like George Soros) and organizations (like the Partnership for a New American Economy) that are advocating for this invasion, but those noted above are some of the big ones.

So who is trying to stop this and how can we take action? See below for a few ideas.

Refugee Resettlement Watch:  Ann Corcoran is the founder of Refugee Resettlement Watch. She is a force of one — a private citizen who became curious, educated herself, and formed an amazing organization that is on the front lines of this battle of the ages. She serves as an example for us all of what an individual can (and must) do to protect our families and communities. This excerpt from the “About” section summarizes how the organization came into being. As you will read at the end, Corcoran makes herself available to speak with concerned citizens about refugees being settled in their communities. (A 4-min video that offers a succinct summary of who she is and what she’s doing can also be found here.)

Eight years ago it came to our attention in Washington County MD that a non-profit group (Virginia Council of Churches) had been bringing refugees into the city of Hagerstown (county seat) for a couple of years. Some problems arose and citizens started to take an interest and ask questions about how this federal program works. Our local paper had no interest in finding the facts, so we decided to find them ourselves.

One of the many startling things we found out about this very quiet effort is that these non-profit groups bring to the US on average each year 15,000 (FY90-FY03) Muslim refugees from the Middle East, Africa, the Balkans, etc, almost completely funded by the US Government through grants and contracts to these non-government agencies….  Although we all have sympathy for persecuted and suffering people there are real questions to be answered about the wisdom of this policy.

It turns out that there are hotbeds of this refugee resettlement controversy throughout the US. We have identified some of those. Because the issue is much more complicated than we initially realized, we have set up this online community organizing center at

If you have information or questions from your communities about Refugee Resettlement please get in touch with Ann Corcoran at

ACT for America:  Brigitte Gabriel, the founder and CEO of ACT, is another force of nature. ACT for America is currently implementing a citizen action campaign to apply pressure on mayors who are eager to import refugees into their communities, including mayors in charge of cities in the following 14 states: CA, CT, GA, IL, MA, MO, MD, MN, NC, NJ, NY, OH, PA, and RI. ACT for America has a web form citizens can use to send letters to the mayors currently under scrutiny, here. ACT for America has chapters throughout the United States. I would urge AT readers to join if you are not already a member. (Act for America is one among many organizations doing exceptional work. They need our support and involvement.) For those not familiar with Gabriel’s heroic work, or for those who could use a bit of inspiration, here are two videos of her speaking at the Values Voters Summit (this year and last year). You will not regret time spent listening to her. Videos of Gabriel’s speeches and interviews deserve to be distributed far and wide.

This is where you can find information about elected officials and businessmen who support the Partnership for a New American Economy (an organization that peddles the idea that immigration helps our economy).

This is information about legislation proposed by Congressman Brian Babin (TX-R) to suspend Obama’s plan to import hundreds of thousands of Muslim invaders. (For more information see here, here, and here.)

This is a list of refugee resettlement contacts by state. It is a resource to find out what’s going on in your state, including plans for admitting more refugees. (The list is from 2014, so it is not absolutely current.)

This is a list of “preferred communities.”

This map shows the locations of “welcoming communities.”

This map shows where there are concentrations of programs and services for refugees.

These maps show states with high concentrations of refugees, high concentrations of mosques, and hot spots for terror activity. (And of course it all correlates.)

Take Action

Many (most?) of us feel tired, hopeless, and cynical — saddened and enraged that our voices seem to fall on deaf ears. But we cannot use this as a reason to stop speaking out in any and all ways possible. How can we walk away from a brave legacy of Americans fighting against all odds? How can we ignore the human history of movements that pushed back against tyranny and evil — battles that were long and arduous?

We are 1500 years into this battle. Each of us must do our part. Join organizations working to block the wholesale importation of Muslims who will destroy America from within. Support elected officials and/or candidates who are on the right path. Contact elected officials who are taking us down the wrong road, even if you think your voice won’t matter. Maybe it won’t. But maybe we are in a moment in time that is a small building block of something larger to come. I have no idea. How can we not try without relent?

Don’t hope or assume someone else will pick up the torch. Even if someone else does and even if we do, as well, there are still not enough of us. Let’s change that.

We are foot soldiers without a leader. But soldier on, we must.

Brigitte Gabriel VVS15 Talks Pew Poll on Sharia Law

Meanwhile, An Islamic Fifth Column Builds Inside America by Paul Sperry

In berating GOP presidential hopeful Ben Carson for suggesting a loyalty test for Muslims seeking high office, CNN host Jake Tapper maintained that he doesn’t know a single observant Muslim-American who wants to Islamize America.

“I just don’t know any Muslim-Americans — and I know plenty — who feel that way, even if they are observant Muslims,” he scowled.

Tapper doesn’t get out much. If he did, chances are he’d run into some of the 51% of Muslims living in the U.S. who just this June told Polling Co. they preferred having “the choice of being governed according to Shariah,” or Islamic law. Or the 60% of Muslim-Americans under 30 who told Pew Research they’re more loyal to Islam than America.

Maybe they’re all heretics, so let’s see what the enlightened Muslims think.

If Tapper did a little independent research he’d quickly find that America’s most respected Islamic leaders and scholars also want theocracy, not democracy, and even advocate trading the Constitution for the Quran.

These aren’t fringe players. These are the top officials representing the Muslim establishment in America today.

Hopefully none of them ever runs for president, because here’s what he’d have to say about the U.S. system of government:

Muzammil Siddiqi, chairman of both the Fiqh Council of North America, which dispenses Islamic rulings, and the North American Islamic Trust, which owns most of the mosques in the U.S.: “As Muslims, we should participate in the system to safeguard our interests and try to bring gradual change, (but) we must not forget that Allah’s rules have to be established in all lands, and all our efforts should lead to that direction.”

Omar Ahmad, co-founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the top Muslim lobby group in Washington: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Quran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”

CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper: “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future.”

Imam Siraj Wahhaj, director of the Muslim Alliance in North America: “In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing. And the only thing that will remain will be Islam.”

Imam Zaid Shakir, co-founder of Zaytuna College in Berkeley, Calif.: “If we put a nationwide infrastructure in place and marshaled our resources, we’d take over this country in a very short time. . . . What a great victory it will be for Islam to have this country in the fold and ranks of the Muslims.”

Brigitte Gabriel Speaks at 2015 Watchmen on the Wall Conference

Commemorating The Armenian Genocide Centennial


Published on Apr 23, 2015 by Brigitte Gabriel

100 years ago, the first genocide of the 20th century began. On that date, the Islamic Turks commenced their campaign of deportation, murder and starvation against Christian Armenians. As we observe this solemn anniversary, we should remember the repeated failure of the world community to act against genocide, and contemplate what we can do to stop genocide from occurring on our watch.

U.N. rebuked for ‘apathy’ toward slaughtered Christians

mideast_christians_prayWND, by CURTIS ELLIS, April 19, 2015:

UNITED NATIONS – Ambassadors, businessmen and religious leaders of all faiths gathered at the United Nations in New York on Friday for a high-level summit on the persecution of Christians around the world and the threat it poses to international peace and security.

Some 200 million Christians in 60 countries have been oppressed, abused or murdered solely because they are Christian. Fourteen of the world’s 15 most repressive countries for Christians are Muslim countries. Churches are bombed, often while worshipers are inside. Christians are kidnapped, brutalized, raped, sold into sex slavery, mutilated, shot, beheaded or burned alive.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, retired Lt. Gen. William Boykin and activist Brigitte Gabriel delivered keynote speeches. Panels of faith leaders delivered personal reports from the front lines of persecution and addressed issues including ISIS, the media’s role in the plight of persecuted Christians and what churches are doing globally to bring attention to the problem.

In his opening speech, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, best-selling author of “The Harbinger,” drew a parallel between the persecution of Christians and the case of Kitty Genovese, a New York woman who was murdered outside her apartment while her neighbors ignored her screams outside their windows.

“Another crime is taking place outside our closed windows,” Cahn said.

He described Christians as “the most persecuted religious group on earth.”

“They are oppressed, they afflicted, they are hunted down, they are killed men women and children, the sacrificial lambs of the modern world,” he said.

While calling for global action to stop the slaughter, Cahn told WND there is another lesson to be learned.

“This is a sign of the last days,” he said. “The Bible says there will be persecution. Not only do we have to speak up for those in chains, the Bible says, but we have to realize that this is a harbinger of things to come. We have to learn from the persecuted believer how to be strong in a society and culture that is against the gospel. So we have to speak up for them, but we have to be ready to walk in their shoes.”

Donning a prayer shawl, Rabbi Cahn delivered the Hebrew blessing for those persecuted for the faith.

“May the Lord hold you in the palm of His hand” and bring “peace in the midst of conflict,” he said.

Watch Rabbi Cahn at the U.N.

Brigitte Gabriel, founder and CEO of ACT for America, one of the organizers of the summit, brought the audience to tears. Growing up Christian in Lebanon where Islamists bombed her home, she learned “that only three kinds of people existed in the world: killers, victims and bystanders.”

She said her experience gave her a fierce determination to fight evil, apathy and indifference. Gabriel shocked the assembly with the story of a mother searching for her kidnapped son in ISIS-held territory.

“ISIS fighters gave her some meat to eat and water to drink,” she said. “When she asked about her son, they answered laughing, ‘You’ve just eaten him.’”

But she leveled the harshest condemnation at the organization hosting the gathering.

“Christians slaughtered by evil feel abandoned by humanity, forsaken by the world’s conscience and rendered dead by the apathy of the United Nations,” Gabriel said.

“The United Nations’ Security Council is, as usual, impotent. And while the Human Rights Council ceaselessly foams at the mouth about perceived Israeli violations of Palestinians’ rights, it doesn’t seem to notice documented massacres of Christians by Muslims all over the world.”

Gabriel said it’s “time to call evil by its name: Islamic jihadists killing in the name of their religion.”

“It’s time to throw political correctness in the garbage. It’s time to silence the apologists for evil including members of the United Nations,” she said.

The issue, she said, is actually greater than the persecution of Christians.

“Radical Islamists seek to subjugate everyone who does not adhere to its version of ‘religion,’” she said. “Just because we are not at war with radical Islam does not mean that radical Islam is not at war with us. Pretending that war does not exist only ensures our defeat. The consequences of that defeat will be catastrophic for the civilized world.”

Text of Brigitte’s speech 

Retired Lt. Gen. William Boykin, executive vice president at the Family Research Council, served with the U.S. military in the Balkans to enforce the peace agreement that ended the Bosnian-Serb civil war.

He talked about the slaughter of thousands of Bosnian Muslims at the U.N. safe haven of Srebrenica, an outrage that drew the U.S. into the Balkan conflict.

“But when you wipe out an entire city like Maaloula in Syria, the oldest Christian city in the world, there is hardly even a bleep on the radar,” he said. “Why is that? Why is there no outrage? Christians don’t seem to matter.”

Boykin told WND he hopes the event will lead the international community to stand up against the attacks on Christians.

“This event is long overdue,” he said. “Persecution and brutalizing of Christians is not new. But today, given the pace at which Christians are being killed and the numbers in which they are being killed, this is overdue.”

“A global outrage is essential,” Boykin said.

He concluded with Psalms 94 Verse 16: “Who will rise up against this evil for me? Who will take a stand against these evildoers?”

Brigitte Gabriel Explains Islamic Jihad

ileana092914By Dr. Ileana Johhnson Paugh:

Brigitte Gabriel, founder and CEO of ACT for America, opened their annual conference in Washington, D.C. on September 10, 2014, with a rousing speech and a five minute lesson on Islam.

The ACT for America conference was held around September 11 in order to remind our government that they work for the American people and have a duty to protect them from Islamic terrorism. The conference also educated members of Congress about the threat of Islam and honored chapter leaders from various states for the incredible amount of work that they do as soldiers on the ground.

ACT for America is non-profit, non-partisan, and the nations’ largest grassroots organization devoted to promoting national security and defeating terrorism. ACT for America has 280,000 members organized in more than 890 chapters nationwide and 11 countries worldwide.”  The goals of ACT for America are confronting terrorism, preserving the U. S. Constitution, securing the border, energy independence, empowering women – protecting children, and supporting Israel.

Brigitte Gabriel spoke at the Global Anti-Semitism Summit at the United Nations in New York City on September 9, 2014. She addressed the 500 people in attendance with passion and conviction, in defense of Jews worldwide and against the evil of anti-Semitism. She proudly wore a Star of David necklace given to her by the husband of a woman who passed away. She considered Brigitte the champion of freedom from terrorism.

Brigitte described the demonization by the MSM that Jews have committed genocide against the Palestinians, yet the Palestinian population has increased more than 600% since 1948. “Israel must be the most incompetent mass murderer in the history of the world,” she said.

She spoke about the double standard Israel is subjected to every day. It is held to a standard that no other country in the world is held. Human rights are respected in Israel, yet the Human Rights Commission at the United Nations spends most of its time investigating and condemning Israel while they gloss over and ignore the continued human rights violations in Iran, Cuba, China, North Korea, and many other brutal and repressive regimes.

Why is it that the Jewish people do not have the right to exist as a state? Why are the Jewish people denied their history and connection to their land dating back 5775 years?  It is anti-Semitism and morally repugnant, she said. Israel has the fundamental right of self-preservation.

Hamas has been waging war on Israel for decades. It is the same war that ISIS wages now against the world. The difference is focus, Gabriel said. ISIS wants a worldwide Caliphate and “They commit genocide in the name of Allah.”

“ISIS is persecuting members of every community they encounter; ISIS is slaughtering Syrians, Lebanese, Christians, Sunnis, Alawites, Kurds, and Yazidis, terrorizing anyone who does not submit to their version of Islam.”

Hamas rejoiced at the death of Israeli children while they glorified the death of their own children. They love death more than they love their own children. “They use them as human shields, wrapping them in nails and strapping bombs on them to detonate in crowded Jewish neighborhoods and shopping centers. They used my own family as human shields by firing rocket propelled grenades from above our shelter, leaving the area quickly and abandoning us to the devastation of return fire.”

Dr. Michael Savage said in his September 15, 2014 broadcast, “If a religion preaches death, dying, and destruction, it is not a religion, it is a death cult.”

Hamas uses schools, mosques, and other civilian locations to fire rockets at Israel. Jews don’t hide behind civilians, they defend themselves. They learned from history that if someone wants to kill them, they mean it. They are now armed and ready to fight for western civilization, for all of us. “Those who seek the extermination of the Jews are not going to stop with the Jews. That should have been the lesson of the Holocaust,” said Gabriel.

Islamic terrorism has turned the entire world into their target. “Evil dwells where courageous men become bystanders, when the informed become silent.  ACT for America stands up and defends the Jewish people. Make sure that people of all faiths can live in peace and harmony and that Jews are never persecuted again.”

Gabriel explained that terrorist organizations, whether they call themselves ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Boko Haram, or the Muslim Brotherhood, operate from the same doctrine and ideology.  And the beheadings and killings of Christians and journalists do not indicate that they want to “coexist.”

Expressing her concern over ISIS finding well trained recruits and suicide bombers with lightning speed, she brought up the very real possibility that these operatives have already arrived in our country through our porous southern border, and could walk into a mall and shut down our economy with a small operation of suicide bombers.

Giving the listeners a five minute history of Islam, she explained why “They are not the extreme version of Islam.” They did not change recently from an ideology to a violent ideology, it happened long time ago.

According to Brigitte Gabriel, the Prophet Muhammad tried to preach and recruit followers in his city, Mecca, for 12 years and failed. People did not want to follow him. He then went to Medina, a Jewish hub at the time, to preach his message. If they would accept him, his own people would accept him.  In order to preach to the Jews, Muhammad incorporated a lot of the Old Testament into his preaching such as praying two times a day, not eating pork, fasting for Ramadan like the Jews do for Yom Kippur, washing hands before prayers, etc. But the Jews of Medina refused to accept him. That became the turning point into militarism, attacking Jews, killing them, or expelling them from their city. At this point, she said, “Islam changed from a strictly spiritual movement to a military/political movement clothed in religion.”
