RR Watch - Idiotic DCRally4Refugees flops - Jumbotron for teensey crowd - Soros didn't pay enough? --tma
I’m glad I dragged myself to Washington on a steaming Sunday morning because if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes I wouldn’t have believed that the big hoopla that led up to the so-called Rally4Refugees would fall so short of expectations.
Someone spent an awful lot of money for jumbotrons, tents, a big sound system, bottled water, porta pots, and African American clean-up crews (for a mostly white crowd) for what generously might be called a thousand people (at one point or another during the event). I’m terrible at estimating crowds, so it might have been 500 at the peak of the rally before noon.
Most attendees did not wear the recommended orange shirts so some of those watching the poets, singers and marching troops in orange life vests could have been tourists who took a few minutes from their visit to the Washington Monument to see what was going on.
My report was phoned in to Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily and his write-up is here. ‘Puny’ it was!
For your viewing pleasure, here are more photos of the day (in addition to those posted at WND). I’ll be so interested to see how any other media reports on it. I saw lots of fancy schmancy cameras, but I didn’t see any cable news or reporters of any note. ...
WaPost: Fortress Against Fear - Pacific Northwest Redoubt - How will govt protect us since even now looters, arsonists, cop car trashers go unpunished? Sort of cute that these people think all this has nothing to do with race. Invading non-White voters and thugs will not agree. --tma
Don and Jonna Bradway recently cashed out of the stock market and invested in gold and silver. They have stockpiled food and ammunition in the event of a total economic collapse or some other calamity commonly known around here as “The End of the World As We Know It” or “SHTF” — the day something hits the fan.
The Bradways fled California, a state they said is run by “leftists and non-Constitutionalists and anti-freedom people,” and settled on several wooded acres of north Idaho five years ago. They live among like-minded conservative neighbors, host Monday night Bible study around their fire pit, hike in the mountains and fish from their boat. They melt lead to make their own bullets for sport shooting and hunting — or to defend themselves against marauders in a world-ending cataclysm. ...
Refugee R Watch: The Rally4Refugees (aka Rally4Money) kicks off today in DC demanding to pocket tons more taxpayer $$ to invade your town.
It is all about the money! Will Congressional Republicans save us, or not? (More money Part II)
The Rally4Refugees (aka Rally4Money) kicks off today in Washington and although organizers want to give the impression that this is all about saving the downtrodden of the world, they know and are working toward the goal of wringing more of your money, taxpayer dollars, out of you to expand their progressive power base, force diversity down everyone’s throats, and help bring a steady supply of cheap labor for their partners in the global economy.
[See my Part I, here, also about the money]
We can impotently holler and scream about the UN, about Obama, about Soros and Hillary, but we should be screaming at the Republicans in Congress and especially the leadership.
Obama cannot expand the numbers of refugees he wants for FY2017 without the accompanying money from you!
A week or so ago we told you that Obama is looking to get $2.2 BILLION appropriated for FY2017 for the Office of Refugee Resettlement alone. The fiscal year begins October 1!
Congress and the power of the purse!
When Congress returns after Labor Day, will Congress pass a ‘continuing budget resolution’ until a later date (past the November election)?
Will they address next year’s budget in the lame duck session following the election and after we know who will be our President in 2017?
Might they pass a continuing resolution until say March (giving a new President time to have some influence)? Or, they could pass a whole year’s budget in the lame duck.
We don’t know, but you can be sure that during those September days (before they leave to campaign in October) funding issues will be front and center for them.
The point I’m making is that your energy must now be placed on stopping the funding for refugee resettlement (or at minimum keeping it at last year’s level) when the contractors and those organizing that rally today will be putting all their time and energy (most likely using your money to lobby as well!) into expanding the funding levels to accommodate whatever crazy number Obama will announce at the UN in September. Go here and look at their postcard to Congress—it is about MONEY!
The nine federal resettlement contractors*** have no money if they can’t get it from you!
Again, Obama says he wants $2.2 Billion for ORR (in the Dept. of Health and Human Services) while the House Appropriations Committee has already weighed in and said, no. They propose keeping the funding at last year’s level.
See what they said here in the Appropriations Committee report earlier this summer (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum). The Committee recommends $1.6 billion. The contracting agencies will have a much more difficult time trying to open all the new offices they have been talking about with money at last year’s level.
Editor: Remember as you read this that this is just for the Office of Refugee Resettlement and know that the State Department also pays out at least another $500 million directly to the contractors. Also, be sure to take note of the fact that the ‘Unaccompanied Alien Children’ are now costing us almost one billion alone! ...
