Italy coast guard rescues 70 Afghan, Iraqi migrants from crowded boat

ROME (Reuters) - Seventy Afghan and Iraqi migrants were rescued from a packed boat off the southeastern coast of Italy and brought to shore on Sunday, Italy's coast guard said.
Italy closed down a specialized naval mission to rescue migrants in the Mediterranean last year, but continues to bear the brunt of the rescues as the European Union and member states conduct talks on how to deal with the influx.
Two Italian coast guard cutters brought the group to the port of Santa Maria di Leuca in Puglia. There were two women and four minors on board, the coast guard said in a statement.
Refugees escaping war and persecution and economic migrants from Africa and the Middle East have poured into Italy this year. Lawlessness in Libya gives traffickers a free hand to pack people into boats.
But the journey is highly dangerous: on Saturday five Tunisians died after their boat capsized while attempting the crossing, and last month around 800 people drowned in the worst such disaster in recent history. ...

We had a couple of good comments to our post over the weekend about ‘Ireland ‘welcoming’ Muslim ‘refugees,‘ and at the same time voting to make gay marriage legal in the heretofore largely Catholic country.

‘Cultural Marxism’ is succeeding in Ireland and America as it has seeped into every one of our institutions, most especiallythe churches

I  bet that even some of the leaders of the ‘church’ refugee resettlement agencies have no clue where all this came from and what they are doing to America.

Here is one commenter (Jim) in response to my comment about the only weapon the other side has (and it keeps most good people at bay) are the words racist, xenophobic, Islamophobic etc. etc.  I said it is time, past time, to stop being frightened by words!
Jim (LOL!  I never heard the word “Progs” (short for Progressives) to describe the hard Left.  I like it!).  Comment to this post:
I just call them ‘euphemisms’ any more. I saw what I thought was a very good post about progressivism and its lust for the death of the West. PC was born in the Ivy League and Berkeley, spawned by the ’60s and ’70s radicals who decided to destroy the system from within. They are succeeding beyond their wildest dreams. Saul Alinsky was their Messiah and Chicago is their Bethlehem. Old news I know, but amazing. Robert Bork’s ‘Slouching Toward Gomorrah’ was spot on.
“Progs” have a strange affection for Islam. Islam is an enemy of much of what Progs hate about western civilization such as – Christianity (and now Judaism), capitalism, individualism, and constitutional limits on government. So they are fellow travelers in that regard. Of course Progs claim they are defenders of gays and women and minorities, but you notice they are willing to look the other way if it is Muslims doing the oppressing of gays and women. In fact they will actually criticize those same people and defend Muslims in those situations. It is not bizarre if you pretend to think like a Prog – in their world anything that destroys the “evil” which is western civilization is therefore good.
In that regard Progressivism is a religion. As has been said so many times before, you do not need a god for it to be a religion, all you need is a devil. The devil is “the west”.
I maintain that what happened in the ’60s and ’70s has roots that go farther back in our history.

The counter-culture of that period (’60s and ’70s) was one of the first visible signs that “Cultural Marxism” was succeeding.

Years ago, when we (here at RRW) discussed the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States, we wrote several posts about how the US got to this point in our history and we told you about this short description of “Cultural Marxism” by William S. Lind.  You must read the whole thing to better understand that for the revolution to succeed (in order for Marxism to succeed and destroy Capitalism) they needed first to destroy Western Civilization, the family and the church.
William Lind (emphasis is mine):
In his columns on the next conservatism, Paul Weyrich has several times referred to “cultural Marxism.” He asked me, as Free Congress Foundation’s resident historian, to write this column explaining what cultural Marxism is and where it came from. In order to understand what something is, you have to know its history.
When Hitler came to power, the Frankfort School moved to Columbia University in NYC, Barack Obama’s alma mater. 
Cultural Marxism is a branch of western Marxism, different from the Marxism-Leninism of the old Soviet Union. It is commonly known as “multiculturalism” or, less formally, Political Correctness. From its beginning, the promoters of cultural Marxism have known they could be more effective if they concealed the Marxist nature of their work, hence the use of terms such as “multiculturalism.”
Cultural Marxism began not in the 1960s but in 1919, immediately after World War I. Marxist theory had predicted that in the event of a big European war, the working class all over Europe would rise up to overthrow capitalism and create communism. But when war came in 1914, that did not happen. When it finally did happen in Russia in 1917, workers in other European countries did not support it. What had gone wrong?
Independently, two Marxist theorists, Antonio Gramsci in Italy and Georg Lukacs in Hungary, came to the same answer: Western culture and the Christian religion had so blinded the working class to its true, Marxist class interest that Communism was impossible in the West until both could be destroyed. In 1919, Lukacs asked, “Who will save us from Western civilization?” That same year, when he became Deputy Commissar for Culture in the short-lived Bolshevik Bela Kun government in Hungary, one of Lukacs’s first acts was to introduce sex education into Hungary’s public schools. He knew that if he could destroy the West’s traditional sexual morals, he would have taken a giant step toward destroying Western culture itself.
In 1923, inspired in part by Lukacs, a group of German Marxists established a think tank at Frankfurt University in Germany called the Institute for Social Research. This institute, soon known simply as the Frankfurt School, would become the creator of cultural Marxism.
To translate Marxism from economic into cultural terms, the members of the Frankfurt School – – Max Horkheimer, Theodor Adorno, Wilhelm Reich, Eric Fromm and Herbert Marcuse, to name the most important – – had to contradict Marx on several points. They argued that culture was not just part of what Marx had called society’s “superstructure,” but an independent and very important variable. They also said that the working class would not lead a Marxist revolution, because it was becoming part of the middle class, the hated bourgeoisie.  [I believe that the reason the Left is pouring immigrants into America is because the US working class is generally moving up in society and they need a constant infusion of poor people to keep the pressure on.—ed]
Who would? In the 1950s, Marcuse answered the question: a coalition of blacks, students, feminist women and homosexuals.
The modern-day ‘brains’ behind ‘Cultural Marxism’ (including Barack Hussein Obama) have simply added immigrants, especially Muslim immigrants, to the list of those who would help bring down Western Civilization.  But, of course, I think they have a tiger by the tail and the minute the Islamists gain enough power they will rise up and destroy the pandering Left first.  Some of my friends believe the Communists will control the Islamists.  I don’t.
Lind concludes:
The next conservatism should unmask multiculturalism and Political Correctness and tell the American people what they really are: cultural Marxism. Its goal remains what Lukacs and Gramsci set in 1919: destroying Western culture and the Christian religion. It has already made vast strides toward that goal. But if the average American found out that Political Correctness is a form of Marxism, different from the Marxism of the Soviet Union but Marxism nonetheless, it would be in trouble. The next conservatism needs to reveal the man behind the curtain – – old Karl Marx himself.
There is no sense dwelling on it, and yakking about it!  It is important to know history, but now back to work exposing the specific details about how the “Progs,” the Marxists, are working day and night to destroy your family, your church and Western Civilization and how you might stop it!

Complete Text! IMMIGRATION: IS THIS THE BREAKING POINT? [1] “It Would Only Take One Speech” [2] Plan B (Jared Taylor For Congress!)

Peter Brimelow writes: This is an adaptation, and a translation into American, of the talk (“Immigration: Is This The Breaking Point?”) I gave to the American Renaissance conference on April 17-19 2015. Many thanks to Jared Taylor and all involved.
Thank you Jared. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. Jared has been kind enough to invite me to speak at American Renaissance conferences before, but I’ve always wimped out. And I am here now because, well…John F. Kennedy said he became a war hero because“It was involuntary, they sank my boat.” That is basically what happened to me!
Of course, after Alien Nation, my 1995 book on immigration, the die was really cast. I was with Forbes Magazine at the time. Alien Nation caused a huge stink, it was denouncedreviewed twice by the New York Times and all that kind of thing; and it upset the Forbes family terribly. So it was never mentioned in Forbes Magazine—a ludicrous situation: one of the most prominent writers at Forbes, but his book is not mentioned in his own magazine.
That was kind of a bad sign! And things have continued downhill since then.
[ ... ]
We may have to move to “Plan B”.
I have to say I anticipated this in Alien Nation. I had a passage in which I said that if immigration is not cut off, then
Deep into the twenty-first century, throughout the lifetime of my little son…
(Alexander had just been born. He had blue eyes and blond hair.There’s just one (1) reference to his blue eyes and blond hair in the book, in the absolutely unimpeachable context of the absurdity of immigrants getting Affirmative Action preferences at the expense of the native-born, but this is what Alien Nation is most famous for, for reasons I’ll leave you to contemplate)
…American patriots will be fighting to salvage as much as possible from the shipwreck of their great republic. It will be a big wreck, and there will be a lot to salvage. But the struggle must be contrasted sadly with the task of completing the “Great Society” upon which Americans were encouraged to think they were embarking in 1965
…i.e. the year in which when Immigration Act opened the floodgates. That was the point where America could have become Switzerland. It was 90% white. But in fact, it opted, or at any rate it was compelled, to become Brazil. ...

Unable to halt Europe-bound migrants, Tripoli demands help

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Europe cannot halt the deadly traffic of African migrants across the Mediterranean unless it ends a boycott of forces that have seized power in the Libyan capital and helps authorities there cope, the de facto government in Tripoli said.
Chaos and civil war since NATO warplanes helped topple dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 have turned the North African country into the launching point for human traffickers smuggling tens of thousands of people across the Mediterranean. ...

RR Watch - Ann Corcoran: It’s Sunday morning, is your church supporting the resettlement of third-worlders, Muslims, to America?

It’s Sunday morning, is your church supporting the resettlement of third-worlders, Muslims, to America?

Because we have so many new readers I decided to remind all of you that six of the nine major refugee resettlement contractors pretend they are working for all of you (good Christian and Jewish people) when they resettle thousands of refugees to hundreds of towns and cities across the country (and leave the refugees struggling on their own after only a few months!).
Welcome one and all to America! Bishop Eusebio Elizondo, M.Sp.S., auxiliary bishop of Seattle and chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) Committee on Migration. Bishops cheer Obama: 
If your church is affiliated with any of these ‘religious’ groups (federal government contractors all), you must begin to ask your local pastors, priests and rabbis what they are doing.  I bet most have no clue about what is being done in their name!

Maybe tell them if they want to give real Christian and Jewish charity they can give time or money to help refugees where they live in the world, or bring a family to America, take care of them and assimilate them without passing their care, or the cost of their care, on to US and local taxpayers. 

Now that would be real charity!

The groups in red are paid millions of your tax dollarsto resettle refugees across the country.  As members of the Refugee Council USA, they all lobbied Senators this week to support bringing in 65,000 Syrians very soon.
They all lobbied for the ‘Gang of Eight’ Senate (so-called) Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill and they all support Obama’s decision to spread the tens of thousands of Unaccompanied Alien Children across the country.  And, no surprise, they endorsed Obama’s New Americans plan to “seed” your communities with “new” citizens.

US: Iraq's 'will to fight' at issue after IS takeover Ramadi

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Islamic State group's takeover of the Iraqi city of Ramadi shows that Iraqi forces do not have the "will to fight," the U.S. defense secretary says— the harshest assessment yet from a high-ranking Obama administration official about Iraqi fighters.
Iraqi forces outnumbered their opposition in the capital of Anbar province but failed to fight and pulled back from the city in central Iraq, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on CNN's "State of the Union" TV show, which aired Sunday. The Iraqis left behind large numbers of U.S.-supplied vehicles, including several tanks. ...

RR Watch - Ann Corcoran - Rohingya Muslims are definitely being brought to American towns, 1,000 recently


Rohingya Muslims are definitely being brought to American towns


rohingya-migrants-may-16


We’ve suspected that the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the US State Department are working to bring Rohingya boat people, who arrive illegally in Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand to America, but yesterday we learned that 1,000 of them have come recently.

This is what we reported earlier in the week:

How many Burmese refugees are we taking?

The mostly Christian Burmese are one of the largest (if not the largest) ethnic group of refugees we have resettled since 2005 (I checked the data from January 2005 until May 1, 2015).
This is what I learned:  We resettled 140,812 Burmese refugees since 2005.
This surprised me:  In that number were 12,615 Burmese Muslims!  The word Rohingya is not used, but most certainly the Rohingya represent a large portion (if not all) of that number.

According to activists, the UN is not moving the Burmese Muslims out to third countries fast enough!  And, there are 45,000 of them registered with the UN and expecting to be moved to the West.

Here is what we just learned, from the Borneo Post:
ALOR SETAR: A Rohingya welfare body in Malaysia is pressuring the United Nations (UN) to expedite re-settlement of Rohingya refugees to third countries.
Rohingya Society in Malaysia (RSM) chairman Dr Abdul Hamid Musa Ali said as of today, about 2,000 of the tens of thousands of Rohingya refugees residing in the country had been successfully placed in several third countries.
He said the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) should play a role in safeguarding the welfare of Rohingya refugees in Malaysia.
“It is very disappointing as many questions are being raised on how just only 2,000 Rohingya refugees have been successfully relocated to third countries, from about 45,000 refugees registered with the UNHCR.
“This does not include the 60,000 to 70,000 Rohingya immigrants in Malaysia who are still not registered with the UN agency for refugees until now,” he told Bernama here today.

Abdul Hami, who is a Rohingya refugee and UNHCR card holder, said until today, just over 1,000 Rohingya refugees were re-settled in the United States, and the rest in several European countries.

There will be a regional summit on May 29th in Bangkok, Thailand in order to try to figure out what to do for the thousands of boat people arriving from Burma (Myanmar) and Bangladesh.  Be sure to watch the film clip here and see that one refugee says—THEY ARE LOOKING FOR A MUSLIM COUNTRY IN WHICH TO LIVE.  That is great!  There are many to choose from (including Indonesia, Malaysia and heh! how about Saudi Arabia?).
Get used to that ‘R’ word—Rohingya—listen to pronunciation here.
It appears that the PR push is on and that as we express our concerns about Syrian refugees arriving in the US in large numbers, the Rohingya are being quietly resettled here along with the thousands of Iraqi and Somali Muslims each year.
See our Rohingya Reports category here (it includes 177 posts and extends back almost 8 years).  Here is one post from 2008 where we said that as early as 2002, Time Magazine linked Rohingya refugees to Islamic terrorist groups.  You might be interested to see this post as well.  In 2012 a reader alerted us to the fact that the US State Department had removed from a terror watch list a group linked to Rohingya.
The next time you hear one of your friends or some dumb politician say that ‘LEGAL immigration is good,’ remember that this is legal! ...
