Michigan: refugee contractors and employers boo-hooing; not enough cheap labor coming in

Ten years ago they hid the fact that those poor third worlders coming in to the US as refugees were providing a steady supply of cheap labor for big business, now they are admitting it right up front and trashing Trump because he has cut their supply.

Do you humanitarians out there really understand that the US Refugee Admissions Program is first and foremost for the pleasure of the Chamber of Commerce and businesses large and small which want to keep wages low? Why do you think the Republicans in Congress have made no serious move to reform the program?


And, secondly it is about giant ‘non-profits’ like Samaritas (formerly Lutheran Social Services Michigan) keeping their government funding flowing.

By the way Samaritas is a made-up word and why they dropped “Lutheran” is a mystery. (It is like HIAS dropping the “Hebrew” from its name!)

As I said here recently, if we have a labor shortage, let’s debate that, but then shut up about this being all about saving the downtrodden of the world and trying to silence those of us questioning the business model (cheap immigrant labor brought to the US and supported with welfare by THE TAXPAYERS!).

One of the things I’ve wondered for years is: do the refugees coming in understand that low wage, often very dirty and difficult, jobs await them?

The wailing has become deafening as the refugee flow to America has slowed in the last year.

Here is Crain’s Detroit Business with this headline:

Refugee clampdown hits local nonprofits

The subheadline should be:  Businesses aren’t getting their steady supply of taxpayer-supported laborers!

Here is a bit of the story:

Nonprofit services to help refugees fleeing war or persecution resettle in Southeast Michigan are a shell of what they were a year ago.

Local resettlement agencies have laid off much of their staffs and closed offices, following revenue decreases tied to a federal clampdown that has significantly reduced the number of refugees coming to the U.S., especially those from Middle Eastern and African countries that have been the mainstay of local resettlement efforts in recent years. [Revenue decreases because they are paid on a per refugee head basis!—ed]

We need immigrant laborers in Michigan (to heck if we change America by changing the people)!  Picture kind of reminds one of picking cotton (just saying!). Steve Tobocman, executive director of Global Detroit, a proponent of immigration as an economic development strategy.   http://www.modeldmedia.com/features/tobocman060610.aspx


Crain’s goes on….

The slowdown in acceptance of refugees and increased vetting was ordered by the Trump administration over concerns about security. It has had an impact on not just nonprofits but also employers who were relying on resettled refugees as a source of labor, local nonprofits say.

Similar cuts have played out at similar agencies in other parts of the country, said Steve Tobocman, executive director of Global Detroit, a proponent of immigration as an economic development strategy.

“Ultimately, the current state of affairs impacts the services agencies can offer to integrate new refugees,” given the loss of economies of scale that come with larger resettlement numbers, Tobocman said.


To continue providing services to refugees already here, resettlement agencies are seeking alternative funding such as grants from private funders.

And some are looking to local churches and community groups for help.

It is about time, why haven’t they been doing this (above)?  Why? Because taxpayer funding was readily available, so why bother trying to raise private charity—that is hard work!

Crain’s continues….


Vickie Thompson-Sandy, president of Samaritas makes over a quarter of a $million annually, according to a recent Form 990. Will she give up some of her salary to care for refugees who are down and out now?

“When we’re closing offices in Ann Arbor, where does a refugee go? They can no longer stop by our office to get basic support,” said Vickie Thompson-Sandy, president of Samaritas, a Detroit-based social services agency that counts refugee resettlement among its services.


Some local companies are feeling the squeeze in their workforces.

Local manufacturing and retail employers that relied on new refugees as employees are calling the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants Detroit on a weekly basis, said Tawfik Alazem, director of its Dearborn office. [USCRI is another of the nine federal contractors*** the US State Department hires to place refugees in your towns and cities.—ed]

Among them is Reino Linen Service, a company that launders and returns about 50 million pounds of linens to area hospitals, health clinics and doctors’ offices each year.

The company’s location in Brownstown Township, where public transportation is an issue, leads to high employee turnover, said Mary Onifer, a corporate human resources specialist for the company. [Truly a sweat shop says one commenter, here.—ed]

Reino has turned to organizations like USCRI Detroit for the past nine years to engage refugees as employees.

Once again we see federal refugee agencies are contractors (head hunters!) for businesses while they collect federal dollars for their supposed good works!

There is much more here, I’ve only snipped a tiny bit.

Don’t cry for Samaritas!

Now just to show you how Samaritas (a subcontractor of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service) is rolling in taxpayer bucks, and the head honchos are pulling down huge salaries, here are a couple of screenshots from a recent Form 990.

Here is there income page—$30 million from taxpayers!

A speech heard round the world! Austrian: You are being replaced

Thousands gathered in London’s Hyde Park, at the famed “Speakers Corner” to hear jailed Austrian patriot and freedom fighter, Martin Sellner’s speech read by Tommy Robinson.

Sellner was blocked from entry into the UK because of his political views.

Raheem Kassam reports here at Breitbart.


Tommy Robinson

Tommy Robinson in Hyde Park, London, yesterday. Americans were there!


A reader suggested I post Sellner’s full speech, good idea!  Everyone who has any way of publishing something should do the same.

Show the British ruling elite that by attempting to silence Sellner they have only amplified his message!  (Emphasis is mine.)


Dear Friends, dear Britons, dear lovers of free speech.

I assume you all are lovers of free speech because you have come to Speakers’ Corner.

You might not understand all the fuss happening today around this speech. Honestly, I don’t understand it either.

My name is Martin Sellner. I am an Austrian patriot, and at the moment, I’m sitting in a detention cell in Colnbrook Bypass near Heathrow. My smartphone was taken and my girlfriend Brittany was separated from me. I currently don’t know where she is. We will be deported on Sunday.

Martin Sellner

Martin Sellner  @Martin_Sellner

Five minutes ago, they unlocked our cells and my fellow inmates are gathering in the prison wing. They are mostly illegals and eastern European criminals.

What brought me into this situation? What was my crime?

My crime was that I wanted to be here with you, to speak at Speakers’ Corner.

But let’s start with the beginning. I was invited by UKIP to present my movement at an event last Autumn. I represent Generation Identity — a patriotic European youth movement that is raising awareness about mass immigration and Islamisation.

Far-left people call us right-wing, people who want to shut free speech down call us ‘fascist’, and folks who hate their own culture call us ‘racist’.

In reality, we are just a group of young patriots fed up with the system, the mainstream press and lying politicians. We use peaceful activism to make our voices heard, and contrary to our friends on the radical left, who are probably swarming you right now, we never wear masks.

From Paris to Rome, from Vienna to London, we fight peacefully but without compromise for our freedom, our homelands, and our identity!

This is what I wanted to speak about in Autumn. But the conference was cancelled due to threats from the radical left. The venue would not take the risk. So they rescheduled it for March, this time keeping the venue secret — but again the terror of the left prevailed, and the venue dropped out.

But this time I did not want to let them win! It was about principles! (Also, our flights were already booked.)

My last refuge was Speakers’ Corner. I remembered my mother telling me about that special place when I was a child. It seemed almost magical to me. A place where everyone, without exception, could just stand on a box and start to speak to those who wanted to listen. I have always loved this tradition of Speakers’ Corner, which seemed very British to me.

But I came only to see that this tradition — the tradition of freedom of speech in the United Kingdom — is dead.

Your Country is blocking you from challenging ideas from the outside. This is a disgrace to our democracy!

I should be speaking in neat, warm a conference room right now, and you should be sitting in comfortable chairs. Instead, I’m in my cell and you are on the street in a standoff with the enemies of freedom of speech.

And this is very telling! Today there is a war going on for our freedom of speech. This war is being fought on the streets, by you!

Every man and woman showing her face today, standing shoulder to shoulder, is standing up against a new totalitarianism that has been growing for far too long. You can be proud of yourself. You might not even agree with me on every point — you are simply giving a statement that I should have the right to speak my mind freely.

I would love to be among you now. They prevented me from it. They locked up the speaker, but I know that the speech will find a way through the iron bars. It will find a way to you and you are going to hear what you government so desperately wants to protect you from.

Those words which they consider more harmful to you then rape gangs or terrorists who are let into your country again and again.

I’m going to tell you something nobody has told you before. It’s the biggest, most obvious secret of our media our politicians and our powerholders: People of Britain, you are being replaced.

There has always been immigration in your history. People coming in, assimilating.

But what’s happening today is different:

You are being replaced by massive Muslim immigration.

You see it everywhere: in London, in Manchester, but also already in the little countryside towns. A big replacement is going on.

And let me tell you: your politicians have no plan, no vision and no idea how to deal with the problems that come along. Problems like you have seen in Telford, Rotherham, and on Westminster Bridge.

All across Europe, there is a shadow hanging over our heads. The French are whispering about in the Metro, the Germans murmuring about it when they feel unwatched, Italians look left and right, and if nobody is listening they tell you: “I don’t feel at home anymore in my street. We are becoming foreigners in our own country.”

And again and again I hear: “We are not allowed to talk about it.”

And that’s the bizarre drama of the ‘Strange death of Europe’. We are being replaced, conquered by radical Islam, and we are not allowed to talk about it!

Dear Britons, defenders of free speech. Out of my cell in Colnbrook, I want to ask you something. Be honest and raise your hands.

Who among of you has ever been in the following situation: You grab a beer after work, or you are visiting your girlfriend’s parents for the first time, or you meet other children’s parents at school — and suddenly the conversation moves to politics: radical Islam, immigration.

Who of you in this very moment was faced with the decision between speaking his mind and facing problems, or complying and staying silent?

Raise your hands and be honest.

I will not be able to see the results, but every single hand is too much. This amount of fear should not exist in a society. Speech that has social costs and severe consequences is no longer free. It has a price — and our Government and the Antifa are working everyday to raise that price.

No freedom of speech means no democracy. In front of our very eyes this country is becoming a tyranny, shutting all debates about immigration down, until demographics solves the issue by replacement.

People of the UK. I might be in a cell right now, but you all are in a cell. It’s the prison of fear and silence your government and the PC tyranny has locked you in since the days of your childhood.

I ask you, I command you, break free!

Patriots of the UK: come out of the closet. Make your dissent visible by visible acts of resistance that inspire others. I know for certain that millions in the UK think like me. Those millions should be on the street now.

We need a coming out of the silent majority, or Britain is lost. We need a free, open and honest debate about immigration, Islam and demographics, so we can sort these problems out together.

And I know that the force is still in you. With your Brexit vote you stunned the world! The will and the life of the British nation is not broken.

Initially, I asked if freedom of speech is dead in the UK. You, every one of you who came today, is a living sign that the tradition of the UK is not dead! You are the livley tradition of your nation, saving its face before history.

People of the UK — remember who you are! Remember your glorious past, you are sons and daughters of knights, kings, explorers, philosophers and artists. Who is the sovereign in this country?

Is it big money?

The mainstream media?

The politicians?

It’s you — the people. You, the silent and invisible majority who said NO during Brexit. You can say NO again — no to Islamisation, no to mass immigration, and no to the great replacement.

And YES to your identity — yes to your security, yes to your heritage and the future for your children.

And all this is impossible without to freedom of speech.

I know, if these words will find their way to the UK and even to Speakers’ Corner, it will be victory for our cause.

If they did, and if you are hearing them now, I tell you: go further on that winning street. Don’t be afraid because we have an ally that is unbeatable: Truth.

The battle, our battle for freedom of speech, has just begun, and Speakers’ Corner will become a symbolic place in that struggle.

When you go home know I want you to bring the spirit of Speakers’ Corner with you.

Every single person who raised his hand because he could relate to this moment of fear, when he did not dare to speak his mind.

Promise me: Next time I will overcome my inner fear. Next time I will speak up!

We are all praying that Europe will save itself before it is too late, but….

Never forget, Obama’s people were right up front about it—they said they were changing America by changing the people.  In America, we have a chance now to turn that around, make the most of it!  This is not the time to take a break just because Donald Trump is in the White House. They will be attempting to come back!

Iowa “man” charged with murder after victim of attack dies months later

Here we are playing the immigrant name-game again.

Ann Coulter says one has to have a “secret decoder ring” to figure out where the violent perps are from and how they got here in the first place!

Up next is Magai Anai-Kur now charged with murder after the victim of his home invasion dies.

Magai Anai-Kur

First degree murder charges for 
Magai Anai-Kur, 19

I looked around and see that some are speculating he is from a large family of South Sudanese admitted to the US as refugees, but the police aren’t saying and apparently the media isn’t asking.

He could be a refugee (no sense debating about vetting because they can’t screen out criminal refugees and apparently they don’t try to screen out the mentally ill as we have reported on numerous occasions).

The alleged murderer could be here on ‘Temporary Protected Status;’ he could be an asylum seeker; he could have come through chain migration from a winner of the ‘Diversity Visa Lottery; he could be a student visa holder; or he could have come across any of our borders illegally.

But, since we are never told, let’s just assume he is a refugee until we learn otherwise! (Checking Wrapsnet I see that Des Moines is a resettlement city and that a bunch of Sudanese were placed there in the last years of the Obama Administration.)

Maybe if we do just assume criminals like this one are refugees, the refugee industry will get behind publicly identifying violent immigrants to clear their refugees of blame.

There is a brief story here at the Des Moines Register (hat tip: JC) about the upgrade of charges now that Mr. Howe has died and his injuries are from the home invasion.

Prosecutors have charged the suspect in a break-in and stabbing in Urbandale last year with first-degree murder, two months after the victim in the case died of his injuries.

Magai Anai-Kur, 19, is charged with first-degree murder, first-degree burglary, first-degree robbery and second-degree theft in connection with the home invasion on Sept. 3, 2017.

The 77-year-old victim of the home invasion, Robert Howe, died in January. Four months earlier, he had been hospitalized after he was stabbed during the break-in.

Now, have a look at an earlier article at the Des Moines Register describing what happened when the violent African “man” broke into the Howe’s home.

Before a violent break-in brought devastation into their lives, 77-year-old Robert Howe was living in Urbandale with his wife, Marilyn Howe.


Robert Howe died months after the home invasion attack.

The two were married for nearly 60 years, according to his obituary. He enjoyed spending time with his great-granddaughters and had welcomed a great-grandson into his life just a few days before a teenager allegedly attacked him, his widow said.


Early in the morning on Sept. 3, Robert woke up in his home at the 6300 block of Urbandale Avenue to find someone on top of him, strangling him, Marilyn said.

Magai Anai-Kur, 19, was charged with attempted murder, 1st-degree burglary, 1st-degree robbery and 2nd-degree theft in connection with the home invasion, according to police. The Polk County Attorney’s Office will determine whether any charges will be upgraded.

During the break-in, Robert woke up to find Anai-Kur strangling him with his hands around his neck, his thumbs on his Adam’s apple, Marilyn said. Anai-Kur then allegedly beat him on the head, resulting in Robert sustaining a broken jaw. The teen then allegedly put his elbow on Robert’s throat and stabbed him with the other hand.

Anai-Kur allegedly stole a car from the home, which was later recovered, according to police.

Most people initially thought the stabbing is what caused the worst injuries, but it was the strangulation, Marilyn said.

“His body was very depleted from what happened,” she said. “All that strangulation interrupted the blood to the brain and caused the stroke and damaged his throat muscles. He was never able to swallow properly.”

And, the Leftists want our guns!

See my ‘Crimes’ category which has surpassed 2,000 posts (2,228 to be exact!).

And, think about this: whatever immigration program brought him here, he will now be cared for by taxpayers for a likely life in prison.

Looking for something to do?

Spearhead a national campaign to require that police and media identify the nationality and immigration status of those arrested and charged with violent crimes and require making the information immediately available to the public!

LOL! See if you can line up Ann Coulter for your media blitz!

West Virginia citizen activist now on the Deep State’s radar

In some ways I almost don’t want to report on the latest from LeoHohmann.com because I don’t want more Americans who stand up for America and Western Civilization to live in fear of our own government, but you need to be forewarned!

Hohmann’s chilling piece is about our friend Brenda Arthur in Charleston, WV entitled:

Deep state attacks: Gov’t ‘Fusion Centers’ spying on patriots concerned about Islam



Brenda Arthur testifies on refugee resettlement Feb. 22, 2017, before the West Virginia House of Delegates Homeland Security Committee in Charleston. West Virginia.


Below is some of the story, but please read the whole thing.  I’m just setting the stage with the following snips:

Brenda Arthur received an unexpected visit on March 8 that, one week later, leaves her feeling more than a little uneasy.

At her door that day was an officer with the West Virginia State Police. He wanted to know about her involvement in a Freedom of Information request regarding a local mosque.

Arthur, who will turn 67 this summer, serves as leader of the West Virginia chapter of ACT For America, whose mission is to educate Americans about the advancement of Islamic principles in Western societies.

Islamic association of WV

Islamic Association of WV was expanding presumably to accommodate Syrian refugees the local ‘Interfaith’ community was pushing to resettle prior to the election of Donald Trump. 

As a Jewish American, she was concerned about a major expansion of the Islamic Association of West Virginia in her hometown of South Charleston. This mosque has hosted an openly anti-Semitic preacher in the past, and so she went to city hall in late January to have a look at its construction permits and site plans, something that is within the right of every American citizen under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act and state open-records laws.

She had no idea that this perfectly legal activity, performed every day by citizen watchdogs across the U.S., would prompt a visit from the state police.


Workman’s [the officer who came to Arthur’s door] unit is part of the West Virginia Intelligence Exchange, a secretive outfit that works closely with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s “intelligence fusion center” in West Virginia.

All 50 states have at least one DHS fusion center, and the story of Brenda Arthur lends credence to the views of civil libertarians that these centers, whatever their stated purpose, have been weaponized against law-abiding American citizens.

Do not talk to them!

Whitehead [John, founder of the Charlottesville, Va.-based Rutherford Institute] has strict advice for any law-abiding citizen who is approached by law enforcement asking questions about their personal activities.

“If they come to your door, do not talk to them. If they call you on the phone, do not talk to them.”

Whitehead said the intimidation tactics used by fusion centers are similar to the East German Stasi and other secret-police agencies.

“They’re copying the tactics of former totalitarian regimes and the slightest mistake can get you in trouble,” he said.

Hohmann continues, please read it all so you know how to handle the situation should it happen to you.

It is going to get harder before it gets better, so please hang in there all of you!

You might not have Brenda’s bravery (or that of Johnson in my previous post), but there are so many things you can do to save America and save Western Civilization—find your niche and work at it every day!

St. Cloud city councilman Jeff Johnson to speak in Washington

And, the St. Cloud Times once again shows how biased it is against anyone who challenges the power in that city and state that is hauling in third world workers for the slaughterhouse industry ( while faking humanitarian concern!) by falling for the Southern Poverty Law Centers‘ shoddy research.

Stephanie Dickrell

St. Cloud Times reporter shows her bias (again). Stephanie Dickrell

(RRW is listed as a “hate group” as well, and as you know I’m a single blogger/journalist with NO group—so much for their research.)

And, by the way,  Breitbart has a big story on Friday entitled:

Disgraced Media Already Hit with Massive Layoffs in 2018

Newspapers are going down and sloppy work and biased reporting by the likes of the St. Cloud Times will eventually bring it down too!

This is what I mean….

In large type, reporter Stephanie Dickrell and her editor post this subheadline so as to bias readers right up front.

Group hosting panel was labeled an anti-immigrant hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2016

Here is some of Dickrell’s story:

Jeff Johnson

Councilman Jeff Johnson

A St. Cloud City Council member will travel to the nation’s capital this week to discuss the local impact of refugee resettlement.

Jeff Johnson will be part of a panel Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., discussing whether states should be able to opt out of the federal Refugee Resettlement Program.

The host of the panel, the Center for Immigration Studies, says its agenda is pro-immigrant but for low immigration. The Southern Poverty Law Center listed it as an anti-immigrant hate group in 2016.

Last fall Johnson proposed a moratorium on refugee resettlement in St. Cloud. The motion failed and an ensuing council vote declared St. Cloud a welcoming city.

Don Barnett 2

Don Barnett

The National Press Club panel discussion — “Should States Be Able to Opt Out of the Refugee Resettlement Program?” — will use a January report by center fellow Don Barnett as a starting point. He outlined what say states have in refugee resettlement, highlighting “federal overreach.”

He includes a history of the states’ interactions with the refugee program and recommendations for better defining the state role. It also includes a case study of a recent federal lawsuit filed by the state of Tennessee which claims the refugee resettlement program was an imposition by Washington over which the state had no control.

In addition to Johnson and Barnett, the panel will include Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, which represented Tennessee in the lawsuit. Center for Immigration Studies Executive Director Mark Krikorian will serve as moderator.

More here.

Minnesotans, this is the time to develop more alternative media in the state.

Papers like the St. Cloud Times (which swallows the lies of Leftwing money-grubbing groups like SPLC) will die and you need to be ready with other sources of news that support your interests and concerns.  And, the more the merrier!

Saturday, the catch-up day….

I’m trying something new starting today.  Because there are always so many interesting things to write about each day, I use my limited time at the computer to write posts and so end up with little time to answer your many e-mails (I have two e-mail accounts with thousands of e-mails each, yuk!).

RRW logo

My goal for Saturdays (Ha! we will see) is to answer e-mails, and get caught up on facebook and twitter, and to fix some technical things here at RRW. For example, someone asked that I add ‘Gab’ to my sharing choices and I think I accomplished that.

And, btw, while in the bowels of RRW, I noticed I never had turned on the sharing button for your e-mail subscription notices.  On that subject, I recommend you visit RRW on a regular basis instead of relying on the e-mails every time I post. There is much more right here including my twitter feed (right hand sidebar).  Even if you aren’t on twitter you can see the many important issues I tweet that never make it to my blog pages.

Also on the right hand sidebar you can see recent posts and the top posts of the last few days. The Frequently Asked Questions tab is on the header, here.

I am @RefugeeWatcher on twitter.

RRW’s facebook page is here: RefugeeInfoResource and includes items placed there by a partner administrator.

Thanks for visiting, thanks for all your comments, and thanks to those also who send me snail mail at my post office box. (P.O. Box 55, Fairplay, MD 21733). And, sorry I can’t keep up with everyone’s comments and questions, I’m trying harder starting today!

Uzbek refugee admits he wanted to kill California prison warden by slitting his throat

This is one of those stories I’m sick of writing about.  I’ve followed Fazliddin Kurbanov’s ‘career’ since his arrest in Idaho in 2013.

He is one of those Uzbeks that we have admitted to the US since the Bush Administration who were already radical Islamists back home, and why we took hundreds is still a mystery. Rumor is that the CIA and State Department teamed up to get them here.

This is the latest at The Sun (San Bernardino):

By the way, some stories just list him as an “Uzbek national” but others, like ABC here have it right.  He was a refugee, now he will cost US taxpayers a fortune as we care for him in prison!

An Uzbek national already serving a 25-year terrorism-related sentence has entered a guilty plea for trying to slit the throat of the warden of the Victorville federal prison in a 2016 attack.

Fazliddin Kurbanov

From Kurbanov’s earlier facebook page.

Fazliddin Kurbanov, 34, faces sentencing on June 4 before United States District Judge Virginia A. Phillips in Los Angeles after he entered a guilty plea Tuesday, March 13, to one count of attempted murder of a federal officer. 

Kurbanov attacked then-Warden Calvin Johnson of the Victorville Federal Correctional Institute on May 31, 2016 in a dining facility, where Johnson was standing “near the serving line to be accessible to inmates during the lunch service” court papers said.

Kurbanov, armed with an approximately 4-inch prison-made shank, grabbed Johnson from behind and tried to cut the warden’s throat; when Johnson raised his hands to protect his throat, Kubanov instead slashed the warden on his left side, the document said.

Kurbanov admitted in an interview with authorities that he had made the shank, found a way to conceal it, and intended to kill Johnson with it, the court papers said. The attack took place five months after Kurbanov was sentenced in the terrorism case in Idaho.

Johnson was seriously injured in the attack, but has recovered and is now working at another prison in the federal system, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Los Angeles said in a statement.


Obama’s US Attorney for Idaho, Wendy Olson, was concerned with American rabble that might act up during Kurbanov’s 2015 trial!   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2015/07/14/as-trial-opens-for-idaho-refugee-alleged-terrorist-idaho-statesman-reports-on-refugee-program/

In January 2016, Kurbanov was sentenced to 25 years in prison for for conspiring and attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and possessing an unregistered destructive device. He was convicted after a trial.

Prosecutors in that case said Kurbanov made contact with a website for the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan and discussed with the website administrator “his animosity toward Americans, particularly the military; his desire to build a bomb; possible targets in the United States, including military bases in Idaho and Texas; and his need for instruction on how to construct and remotely detonate a bomb,” according to a statement by the U.S. Attorney’s office for the District of Idaho.

He also discussed possible targets with an FBI confidential source, including the United States Military Academy at West Point, the prosecutor’s office said.

Go here for my complete file on Fazliddin Kurbanov.

His Idaho trial came at a time when tensions began to rise in that state about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program. The US attorney and others went to great lengths to minimize the news about the trial.

Iraqi refugee murdered in Rochester, MN by gang of thugs

I’m posting this because I’m curious about this gang which was arrested shortly after the shooting of a respected Iraqi family man resettled in Rochester, MN by Catholic Charities only a few years ago.  Was it a random shooting? We likely will never know.

I was also interested because the gang (playing the name game!) appears to be a mixed group of migrants and home-grown thugs. (Diversity is strength so they say!)




From Winona Daily News:

ROCHESTER — The man who was shot and killed Monday night escaped violence in Iraq, only to have it find him here.

Ahmed Muafaq Abdulhu Al Naddf, 40, was an Iraqi refugee who immigrated to the United States in 2014. He, his wife and their two young children left their home country and settled in Rochester shortly thereafter, with help from a local branch of Catholic Charities.

On Monday night, Al Naddf was shot and killed with a single bullet to the chest near his home in the 2800 block of Charles Court Northwest. Four men have been arrested in connection with the shooting — the motive for which is still unclear — and will likely face charges of second-degree murder.

KIMT3 News announces arrest:

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Four suspects are now in custody in connection to the murder of a husband with two kids, Rochester police said Tuesday afternoon.

Capt. John Sherwin said Tuesday the murder of 40-year-old Ahmed Muafaq Abdulhu Al Naddf began with a confrontation of some sort and ended with one shot being fired.


Eric Tyler Lee, 25, Sao Yim Jr., 24, Traequan Bamlounghong, 23 and Deante Stanifer, 24, are all facing second-degree murder charges.

Stanifer’s arrest was announced Tuesday afternoon after the other three had already been taken into custody.

For the folks in the multicultural mecca of Minnesota, let me know if you see more on this case.

The Economist: The number of ex-Muslims in America is rising

This is one of the most interesting articles I have read in awhile. Who knew? Somalis and other Muslim immigrants are leaving Islam in growing numbers, or at least hiding their rejection of the ‘faith.’

I’ve heard it said that there would be no Islam if there was no severe punishment for renouncing it.  Around the world “apostasy” is a death sentence. Honor killings here in the US are a prime example of how Islam instills fear in its ‘followers.’

Here is The Economist with the fascinating news:

ayaan hirsi alie

Proof that free speech must be preserved. Hirsi Ali’s speaking out has influenced many to make the break!

AS SOON as he stepped off the plane on a family holiday to Kenya, Mahad Olad knew something was wrong. His mother, a “very devout, very conservative, very Wahhabi” woman, was acting strangely—furtively taking phone calls when she thought he was out of earshot. His suspicions would soon be proved correct. Mr Olad’s family, Somali immigrants to America and devout Muslims, had discovered that he had not only renounced Islam but was also gay. The holiday was a ruse, an intervention to save his soul.

Mr Olad was told he would leave college and be turned over the next day to the care of Muslim clerics who would restore his faith. “I was aware of the horrors of these camps,” Mr Olad says. “They operate them in the middle of nowhere, where you cannot escape. They subject you to beatings, starvation and trampling.” He tried to contact the American embassy, but it could not send help because of recent terrorist attacks nearby. Luckily, he also managed to reach a Kenyan atheist group. In the dead of night he sneaked into his mother’s room, stole his passport and was whisked away by taxi to the embassy, which eventually returned him safely to America. He has not spoken to his family since.

Though few have such harrowing stories, hundreds of thousands of American Muslims might recognise something like their own experience in Mr Olad’s tale. As the number of American Muslims has increased by almost 50% in the past decade, so too has the number of ex-Muslims. According to the Pew Research Centre, 23% of Americans raised as Muslims no longer identify with the faith. Most of them are young second-generation immigrants who have come to reject the religion of their parents. Some, however, are older when their crisis of faith arrives, already married to devout Muslim spouses and driving children to the mosque to study the Koran at weekends.


Normalizing islam

Ex-Muslims of North America (EXMNA) touring the US. Is the SPLC trying to silence them too (as they have tried to do to Hirsi Ali)?  https://www.exmna.org/ex-muslims-they-left-islam-and-now-tour-the-us-to-talk-about-it/

The vast majority, whether young or old, are silent about their faithlessness.


Publicly leaving Islam is difficult because many Muslims live in tight-knit communities. Many apostates are left closeted, afraid to put at risk their relationships with their parents, on whom they may still depend, or with their siblings and their friends. Non-believing Mormons, Hasidic Jews and evangelical Christians find themselves in a similar predicament. Within Somali enclaves in Minneapolis and Pakistani ones in Dallas, renunciation of Islam is tantamount to renunciation of an entire social circle. “The most frustrating part is living knowing that my life has to be guided by the rules I don’t agree with,” says one still deep in the closet.


Then there are those in more religious households. They tend to have cleaner breaks, sudden realisations while studying the Koran or the Hadith, the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad. Often the verses that trigger this are controversial ones about slavery or gender that family members and imams cannot explain satisfactorily. Coming across the writings of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Richard Dawkins or Christopher Hitchens sometimes has the same effect.


Despite all the pressure of family and community, more ex-Muslims seem to be going public. Ex-Muslims of North America (EXMNA), an advocacy organisation, has pushed for those who safely can to publicly declare their renunciations.

“The goal is to change things enough so that we no longer need to exist,” says Sarah Haider, EXMNA’s director.

I’m chuckling as I wonder —- has the Southern Poverty Law Center declared EXMNA a hate group yet?  After all, showing what a bunch of buffoons they are, they named Ayaan Hirsi Ali an Anti-Muslim Extremist in 2016, here.
