Will surge of refugees to Michigan in coming months help Donald Trump win that all-important state?

Reports are coming out of Michigan that suggest the state, already a leading state attracting Muslim migrants, will be getting a surge of Syrians as the end of fiscal year 2016 approaches (that would be September 30th).

Refugee numbers always surge in the late summer and up until the 30th because the feds and their contractors are desperate to get their numbers up to the magic number, this year it is 85,000, that the President asked for last fall.  (Congress just winked at that number. What will they do when Obama comes in with a ‘determination’ of 100,000 for FY 2017?).

We also know that Michigan, a leading state for Syrian Muslim refugee resettlement, is a state that Donald Trump has on his target list to win.

Both Hillary or Bernie would put refugee resettlement to America on steroids if elected in November. Michigan will be on its way to becoming the first Muslim state in America. As Michigan goes, so goes the nation.

There are 4 or so states that have gone to the Democrats in recent Presidential contests (Wisconsin and Michigan of course have gone for the D for decades), but are now considered to be ‘in play’ for The Donald.

Interestingly, three of the four are top refugee resettlement states (in the top ten!)—Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania (Wisconsin is no slouch either).  I suspect that is no coincidence since the Dems have made it clear they are turning red states blue by changing the people!

So, here is a story at the Detroit Free Press that says a SURGE of Syrians (99% of Syrians entering the US as refugees are Muslims) is expected to arrive in the state in the next few months.

Could anger against Obama and the Democrats over burdening the state with low-skilled immigrants who will be drains on the welfare system, AND pose a security risk to their neighbors, be parlayed into enough votes for Donald Trump?

Frankly folks, the hard reality is that the flow of migrants in to America from all corners of the world will definitely be increased in a Hillary (or Bernie) administration because they will see a repudiation of Trump as an indicator that you don’t care about immigration.

Here is the Detroit Free Press yesterday:

WASHINGTON — With less than five months to go, the Obama administration remains far behind its target of resettling 10,000 Syrian refugees by Sept. 30, but officials are expecting to draw closer to that goal in the coming months with a spike in resettlements in Michigan and across the U.S.

[….]

If a surge is coming, Michigan is likely to be involved: Since the fiscal year began last October, 211 Syrians have been resettled in the state, more than anywhere else in the country — for a total of 386 resettlements between Jan. 1, 2015, and April 30 of this year. And that’s no surprise, considering southeastern Michigan has the largest Arab-American community in the U.S. with cultural and societal ties to the Middle East and deep experience with refugee resettlements.

But the numbers of those coming could dwarf what has been seen to date. According to the State Department, a total of 1,736 Syrians have been resettled in the U.S. since October, meaning it would take on average more than 1,650 resettlements a month through Sept. 30 to hit the 10,000 mark.

If Michigan — which has resettled about 12% of the Syrians accepted into the U.S. since the refugee crisis began last year — continues its trend, the state could welcome hundreds more in the near future, even as questions about immigration lurk as part of a fractious general election debate.

So again, I think that Michigan is pivotal in Election 2016.  

Can a resettlement surge of mostly Muslim refugees to the state concern enough voters to reject a Democrat in the 2016 Presidential election?

On the campaign trail, folks in Michigan should ‘dog’ all candidates with questions about the future of Michigan.  Will it be a state to be further colonized by Middle Easterners, or not?

Visit RRW for a lengthy archive on the state by clicking here.  Believe it or not, a few years ago the US State Department tried to curtail resettlement to Michigan because the refugees would have few employment opportunities.  I don’t know why they then subsequently opened the spigot!

Beware the Delphi Technique! This time in Billings, Montana

Buried near the end of this news account from Billings, MT about churches preparing welcoming kits for refugees is a bit of information you need to know more about—no matter what political issue concerns you!

First wade through a discussion about World Relief Spokane’s Mark Kadel as he brags about how he is proactive with the media to get out a “welcoming” message about refugees to head off the unwelcoming locals.

He says his work in Spokane with the media has helped keep a lid on the controversy that now embroils nearby Missoula, MT.  (See also this morning’s post on Rutland, VT where it looks like the media lid is off!).

St. Andrew Presbyterian Church
St. Andrew Presbyterian Church will host a “constructive conversation” about Syrian refugee resettlement on May 21st.

This is what I want to get to…..

Near the end of the longish piece we learn that a Billings Presbyterian Church is going to hold a community meeting about Syrian refugees on May 21.

St. Andrew Presbyterian Church in Billings invites area residents to engage in constructive conversations about Syrian refugees on Saturday, May 21, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the church, 180 24th St. W.

With a target of 10,000 Syrian refugees to be resettled in the United States by Sept. 30, Montanans are discussing whether Syrian refugees would be welcome in this state or if security issues are more important than the welfare of Syrians.

montana

Participants will join in small groups, with some members in favor of settling Syrian refugees in Montana and others who are concerned about the safety and security of citizens if Syrian refugees are permitted. A facilitator will encourage each person to tell his or her story and background, after which participants will explore any areas of common agreement. [Keep in mind that this ‘story and background’ mumbo jumbo is just one more strategy used to play on your emotions and stop logical debate.—ed]

The goal, according to a press release from the church, “is to learn to listen to others and to share our opinions in a civil manner, trying to understand each other without a need to come to any conclusions.”

For more information or to register for the free event, call the church weekday mornings at 656-9256 or write to office@standrewbillings.org.

Please state whether you are for or against the acceptance of Syrian refugees. This project is supported by a peace-making grant provided to St. Andrew Presbyterian Church by the Yellowstone Presbytery.

[LOL! they need to know in advance if you are for or against Syrians coming to Montana. Why?—ed]

Why is this so interesting to me (and should be to you)?

Because this is an example of the Delphi Technique, a system first developed over 50 years ago that is used now to direct the outcome of a public meeting to a pre-determined conclusion.  This (click here) is a good description of it.

The process used to “facilitate” the meeting is called the Delphi Technique. This Delphi Technique was developed by the RAND Corporation for the U.S. Department of Defense back in the 1950s. It was originally intended for use as a psychological weapon during the cold war.

However, it was soon recognized that the steps of Delphi could be very valuable in manipulating ANY meeting toward a predetermined end.

There are many variations, but here is a simple description of what I predict will happen (and what you can consider doing) at the St. Andrew Presbyterian Church:

Instead of the entire audience hearing the various critics of the idea of bringing refugees to Montana, the critics will be subsumed into small groups where the majority likely will be supporters of the proposition (refugees welcome) and have planned ahead for how to argue within your small group.

You, the critic in one group, will not hear what critics in other groups are saying.  The facilitator in each group will have been carefully chosen in advance (he or she will favor resettlement of refugees in Montana). Of course a smart facilitator will be slick, and you, the critic, will feel like your concerns have been heard.

But, since you are in the minority (unless many many critics show up!) when the group comes back together in the body of the whole, you will be made to feel that your opinion was the minority opinion and may not even be mentioned when wrap-up reports are given by each facilitator.

Media reports of the gathering will say that the majority of Billings citizens want to welcome refugees.

It seems to me that if you are planning to attend and are of the opinion that impoverished third world refugees from mostly the Middle East and Africa will not benefit your community you have several choices.

First, don’t participate at all and maybe protest outside.

Or, participate but stand up at the beginning and demand that you don’t break into small groups—then everyone hears everyone’s else’s concerns and ideas.  If they insist on the break-out groups (because their entire strategy is based on Delphi), you walk out (and complain to the press).

Or, if there are enough of you to make sure each small group has a large compliment of critics, and you are all prepared for their strategy, then it might be worth participating.

When you are participating be firm (and stay calm!) and do not allow anyone in your group (the pro-refugee people) to wander into a discussion about moral duty. Make them stick to the facts—cost of the program, employment, housing, security and so forth.

It is important to stay calm and reasoned because one important part of the Delphi Strategy is to show you as crazy people and the facilitators (the pro-refugee resettlement people) as the professional-sounding ‘good’ people.  Anyone attending who has not made up their mind will then naturally tend to relate to those people—the nice-sounding people—instead of you.

Make sure you get to the media when it’s over and don’t allow the sponsoring group to monopolize any reporters present.  If no reporters are present, then call your local media yourself—right away!

There might be other things you can think of to do, I’m not an expert, but I have seen it done to unsuspecting citizens often enough to recognize it!

And, please, please, all of you who plan to attend, click here and read the strategy on how you can defeat the Delphi Technique!

Zuckerberg controlling speech in Germany (can you say Gestapo?)

This is really incredible. Did they learn nothing from Hitler’s Germany where free speech was so controlled that a massive human tragedy occurred for both Jews and the German people.

Mama Merkel and the boy, plotting to control freedom of speech. Interesting that some versions of this story use this graphic and others don’t. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-09-26/merkel-confronts-facebook-s-zuckerberg-over-policing-hate-posts

This is news from late last week and so you’ve probably seen it—Facebook tycoon Markie Zuckerberg went to dear old Deutschland and promised to wipe “hate” speech from facebook postings, a sure fire way to create an even greater angry pressure cooker scenario where people, if not given an opportunity to vent with their voices, will find other means to blow off steam.

Editor: When I started this blog in January I figured much of my writing would focus on political policy enemies and I wasn’t expecting to find so much to write about where the media attempts to control thought.  See even Fox News here yesterday.

Here is Bloomberg Business (hat tip: the lobbying arm for US resettlement contractors*** who obviously think Zuckerberg is doing a good thing):

. CEO Mark Zuckerberg vowed to rid his site of hate speech against & migrants.

Bloomberg Business:

Facebook Inc.Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg vowed to rid his site of hate speech against migrants and lauded Germany’s leadership in the refugee crisis as part of an effort to win over those critical of the social media site’s handling of the matter.

“We’ve recognized how sensitive this is, especially with the migrant crisis here,” Zuckerberg said to thunderous applause at a town hall event in Berlin on Friday carried live on German cable news channels. “We hear the message loud and clear and we’re committed to doing better, there’s not a place for this kind of content on Facebook.”

Zuckerberg said about 200 people in Germany will police the site to remove racist posts, his clearest public remarks on the issue since Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government complained that the social network wasn’t doing enough to crack down on racists outbursts.

Merkel herself had stepped up the pressure after the arrival of more than 1 million refugees last year in Germany prompted a surge in hate postings. The chancellor confronted Zuckerberg in September on the sidelines of a United Nations development summit in New York to ask how his company was progressing in curtailing those posts.

Zuckerberg met Thursday in Berlin with Peter Altmaier, Merkel’s chief of staff, who is in charge of managing the refugee influx.

Come on folks, how about creating some new communication platforms to compete with facebook!

And, let me beg you all again to please, please use social media and more importantly start your own websites and blogs because they will have a much harder time shutting down everyone that way!

The political revolution we are witnessing right now is because you are able to get your news from thousands of sources, we need to keep it that way!

Obama’s new illegal ‘refugee’ program: vain attempt to stop a massive 2016 border invasion?

Another mass migration across our borders this year will assure Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States?

Beast train
The Democrats worst nightmare! A repeat of the 2014 border invasion.

Leo Hohmann writing at World Net Daily yesterday reports on the Obama Administration’s completely unlawful expansion of the Refugee Admissions Program that would give the United Nations responsibility to select and vet so-called Central American ‘refugees.’

Maybe you’ve seen the news, but it hasn’t gotten much play!  It is your job to make sure that it does!  Remember agitation!  Remember!  The UN is choosing your neighbors!

First, Hohmann describes the new program announced by Sec. of State Kerry on Wednesday.

World Net Daily:

The number of Central American migrants crossing illegally into the United States through the Southern border has grown exponentially under the Obama administration.

More than 130,000 came in 2014 alone, most of them welcomed by sanctuary cities and then protected from deportation by President Obama’s executive actions.

The legality of those actions remains unsettled and appears headed to the Supreme Court.

But now President Obama has invented a new way to continue the influx of migrants from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador and do it in a way that is deemed “legal.” He will simply re-categorize them as “refugees.”

Secretary of State John Kerry announced Wednesday plans to expand a program to let Central Americans apply for refugee status before they attempt the long, arduous trip to the U.S.-Mexico border.

As such, Obama will place authority for the program under the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, who will pre-screen migrants from three Central American countries and decide which ones qualify as refugees eligible to come to the United States, the Associate Press reports.

Is the mass movement northward already in the works?  My guess is YES!

I don’t think the Central Americans and OTMs (Other than Mexicans) are going to wait around for the UN to screen them (haven’t we already heard it is a two year process!).  Heck! they don’t care about American Presidential politics!

What I predict is that all of those waiting south of the border, in Central and South America (including those from the Middle East and Africa who have made their way across the world in hopes of getting into the US), will see the success asylum seekers and illegal aliens have had by swarming European borders and will go-for-it in Obama’s last year in office suspecting (I suspect correctly) that they may not get another chance.

This (below) is what I said at WND.  Obama probably already knows that a massive migration across our border this year would hand the White House to the Republicans—most likely Donald Trump.  I surmise that the ‘legalization’ ploy is a vain effort to keep the swarm from happening.

Corcoran said the Central Americans don’t even meet the current definition of a refugee under international law. Most are economic migrants looking for better employment opportunities.

“They aren’t refugees. Refugees have to prove they were persecuted,” she said. “Running from crime or economic deprivation does not qualify you as a refugee under the United Nations’ definition. They have been working for years on expanding the definition. Even war is not a reason to become a refugee in the sense that you are permanently resettled in another country. It has to be that you were persecuted because of your religion or your race or your political beliefs.”

Corcoran said she expects a huge surge at the border this summer and fall.

“It occurred to me that we’re going to have a huge wave of people coming across the Southern border this year. They’re looking at Europe and how successful it’s been there, and they know this is Obama’s last year in office,” she said. “So look for a huge movement to swarm our borders, by whatever means. This is it. A great migration movement is getting ready to take place.”

But don’t look for the explosion of “refugees” from Central America to get too much media attention. If it does, that will just play into the hands of the Donald Trump presidential campaign.

“If they overplay their hand and make it so blatant and so huge this year, it could backfire and they could end up with Donald Trump in the White House,” Corcoran said.

It is very important for all of you to make this issue a front page story! Start talking about it now!  Check the numbers coming across the border and scream bloody murder each time there is a slight rise in the numbers!

***Update*** I see that the numbers for Unaccompanied alien children and families crossing the border illegally are already on target to surpass 2014.  Click here.  January 18th, see new post at RRW on the new wave of invaders by clicking here.
