Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society: US should bring 75,000 Syrians to US over next 5 years!

We want at least 75,000 Syrians here in the US within 5 years now that security screening has been relaxed. http://www.c-spanarchives.org/program/USRefu
We just mentioned earlier today that the public relations push was on to bring a large number of Syrians to the US so that federal contractors like the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) could be paid to locate them in your city or town.  Never mind that there are few jobs for them, and even if the Syrian civil war ends, they will never go back to Syria. Now here comes Melanie Nezer, VP for policy and advocacy at HIAS writing at theNew York Daily News—America open your arms! The United States should commit to resettling at least half of the refugees identified by the UN Refugee Agency as needing resettlement – or at least 15,000 each year over the next five yearsThis should be in addition to the 70,000 refugees the U.S. has committed to resettle who are survivors of conflicts elsewhere in the world. Other countries have already pl…

DING DONG, FRED PHELPS IS DEAD!!! Westboro Baptist Church Leader DEAD

(CNN) -- Fred Phelps -- the founding pastor of a Kansas church known for its virulently anti-gay protests at public events, including military funerals -- has died, the church said Thursday. The 84-year-old died of natural causes at 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, according to church spokesman Steve Drain. Phelps founded Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, in 1955 and molded it in his fire-and-brimstone image. Many members of the small congregation are related to Phelps through blood or marriage. In a statement Thursday, the church chided the "world-wide media" for "gleefully anticipating the death."

According to Westboro, the church has picketed more than 53,000 events, ranging from Lady Gaga concerts to funerals for slain U.S. soldiers. Typically, a dozen or so church members -- including small children -- will brandish signs that say "God Hates Fags" and "Thank God for Dead Soldiers."…

I smell a little NWO; how about you? 'Deglobalization' Is the Way to Reduce Inequality

[Focus on the Global South, 2003]It is in response to the growing clamor for alternatives to the current system of global governance that Focus has elaborated the strategy of deglobalisation as the guiding paradigm for its programmatic work in the next three-year period. Deglobalisation is not a synonym for withdrawing from the world economy.  It means a process of restructuring the world economic and political system so that the latter builds the capacity of local and national economies instead of degrading it.  Deglobalisation means the transformation of a global economy from one integrated around the needs of transnational corporations to one integrated around the needs of peoples, nations, and communities.
We cannot talk about construction without deconstruction, reintegration without disintegration.  Today there are many experiments in alternative economics, for example local currency systems, participatory budgeting such as that practised in Porto Alegre, or ecological communitie…

ORR Annual Report to Congress for 2011 is now available « Refugee Resettlement Watch

So, considering all of that above, here is the “Economic Adjustment” section of the Executive Summary (emphasis is mine).  My suspicion is that the numbers are much worse than portrayed here due to the small sample size and the large number unwilling to participate or were not found. • The 2011 Annual Survey of Refugees who have been in the U.S. less than five years indicated that 52 percent of refugees age 16 or over were employed as of December 2011, as compared with 59 percent for the U.S. population. • The labor force participation rate was 63 percent for the sampled refugee population, as compared with 64 percent for the U.S. population. The refugee unemployment rate was 18 percent,*** compared with eight percent for the U.S. population. • Approximately 58 percent of all sampled refugee households in the 2011 survey were entirely self-sufficient (subsisted on earnings alone). About 28 percent liv…

EPA Prepares to Regulate Wood Stoves | The West Wire

EPA Prepares to Regulate Wood Stoves | The West Wire

EPA Prepares to Regulate Wood StovesMarch 14, 2014in EnvironmentGovernment From The New American It took more than six weeks before thenew EPA ruleson wood and pellet stoves percolated into the media, which then generated pushback ranging from anger to outrage. The new rules impose a maximum of fine airborne particulate emissions from 15 micrograms per cubic meter of air down to 12. As Larry Bell, writing at Forbes, put it: To put this amount in context … secondhand tobacco smoke in a closed-car can expose a person to 3,000-4,000 micrograms of particulates per cubic meter. That will virtually end the burning of wood for heat or cooking in the United States, according to Reg Kelly, the owner and operator of Earth Outdoor Furnaces in Mountain Grove, Missouri: “There’s not a stove in the United States that can pass the test right now — this is the death knell of any wood burning.”

UC student assaulted near campus; Speaks out about being disarmed by state law

After being violently beaten by a mob of teenagers outside a fraternity house near the University of Cincinnati campus, an engineering student is speaking out about his status as a concealed handgun license (CHL)-holder who has had his right to bear arms for self-defense denied by state law. 



From WLWT (NBC Cincinnati): A UC student who was assaulted by a group of teens near UC’s campus spoke out Monday night. The student is a fifth-year engineering student, but chose not to be identified. Four other students who were attacked Saturday night were outside their fraternity house near Clifton Avenue and Clifton Court. The engineering student jumped in to help and ended up beaten so badly, he had to go to the hospital. “Little bit scared for my safety at that point,” the student said. "Why would they do that? I didn't understand?" 
One of the victims said that the area was usually safe, so the Saturday night assault was very surprising. The engineering student said he was on h…

UCF professor addresses terrorism questions

UCF professor addresses terrorism questions | News-JournalOnline.com

Terrorism, which means using fear to reach political goals, doesn’t necessarily entail violence, Matusitz said. A small percentage of Muslims are terrorists, he said, and most of their victims are fellow Muslims. “Some religions have a specific agenda they need to fulfill,” Matusitz said, without naming specific faiths. “If they can’t fulfill their agenda in a peaceful way, they will use violent means.”

When Bernier asked him for examples of U.S. terrorists, Matusitz named the Ku Klux Klan, the Aryan Nations and Timothy McVeigh.

A hater among us, I don't think so he just wants his country back to the way the founding cultures of the 'British and French' intended it to be.

Multiculturalism in Canada

In 1971, Canada became the first country in the world to declare multiculturalism as official state policy. Multiculturalism is reflected in the law through the Canadian Multiculturalism Act of 1988 and Section 27 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Yet the roots of multiculturalism in Canada can be seen in the country's earliest beginnings, as three founding cultures — aboriginal, British and French — were soon joined by many more from around the globe.

Today, multiculturalism is a touchstone of Canadian national identity and a point of pride for Canadians from coast to coast to coast.




Kevin Goudreau’s blue golf shirt is buttoned to the collar. Were it not, heads would surely be turning, because there is a large tattoo of a swastika on his chest.

He keeps it under wraps during a recent interview, but it is on the Internet for all to see, along with photos of him blanketed in a Nazi flag and with …

German homeschooling Romeike family given ‘indefinite deferred status’ - EAGnews.org powered by Education Action Group Foundation, Inc.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday the Supreme Court of the United States declined to hear the case of a German family seeking asylum in the United States because of persecution they endured in Germany because of their homeschooling.

The Romeike family left Germany after facing fines and possible jail due to their desire to homeschool their children. HSLDA has a video that provides a good recap of their story:
Below is the response from Home School Legal Defense Association Chair Michael Farris that was emailed to supporters. Today, the United States Supreme Court declined to review Uwe and Hannelore Romeike’s asylum case. We knew it was an uphill battle since the Court only accepts 80–100 out of nearly 10,000 requests each year. While we are disappointed, the court’s decision in no way changes our commitment to fight for the Romeikes and homeschooling freedo…
