Will West Virginia Voices In Congress Speak Out On Importing More Syrians? Part Of A National “Seeding” Program In Our Cities and Towns!

Yesterday national blogger Ann Corcoran in her Report: Charleston, WV pro-Syrian Muslim resettlement rally held reported–

“As I told you a few days ago a Charleston ‘Interfaith’ group was planning a rally to push for the resettlement of Syrian refugees to the state capitol. And, as I mentioned then, I am struck by the fact that the rally for refugees was so specific about Syrians when we bring refugees from all over the world (and resettlement contracting agencies don’t get to pick only those ethnic groups they prefer).
Why are they so concerned about Syrians? Why is the Charleston, West Virginia group so discriminatory against other ethnic groups?
And here are my bigger questions: Where is Alex? Where is Shelley? Where is Joe?

“Come on Joe! Even if the Republicans are too squishy to speak up, surely you get it!”
Considering that the controversy about the resettlement of Syrian refugees in American towns is one of the major issues that pushed Donald Trump over the finish line last week, shouldn’t we expect elected officials like Rep. Alex Mooney (R) in whose district this rally occurred and US Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R) and Joe Manchin (D) to have the guts to say where they stand on the issue!”(Highlighting Forum’s throughout.)

Asked author (Refugee Resettlement and the Hijra to America) Corcoran–

“Are they for or against this plan from Washington?

One story about the rally is here.  There was a counter-rally, so no one can say any longer that there is no opposition to the plan to expand the resettlement of Syrian Muslims (99% of all Syrians entering the U.S. are Muslims) into West Virginia.”

Some background–

Let’s take a look at the Liberty Scores (compiled by Conservative Review) of Representative Mooney and Senators Capito and Manchin: click here.

And their Immigration-Reduction Grades (compiled by NumbersUSA): click here.

Among the (thankfully outgoing) Obama Administration’s goals has been to transform America by changing its people.

The Refugee Admissions Program has been an important instrument to advance this. 

And it is also supported by some major corporations seeking cheaper labor.

As the most conservative member of the West Virginia delegation as well as Charleston’s voice in the U.S. House, Representative Alex Mooney should be in the forefront of opposing the importation of Syrian Muslims into the Mountain State.

RIOTS Are Not Healthy for Children And Other Living Things

War is not healthy

Anti-war-protest emblem of the Vietnam Era.

Back in the Vietnam War era, many idealistic friends were touched by an anti-war poster–a sunflower emblem that framed what became, for a time, a well-known “peace movement” slogan:

“War is not healthy for children and other living things.”

Now, with the many anti-Trump demonstrations morphing into riots in our cities —with arson, property damage and looting in places like Portland OR, Oakland CA, and Indianapolis—I think we should update that slogan:

Riots are not healthy for children and other living things.”

What’s A Riot To Do With?

To people of common sense, a political demonstration might make all the sense in the world.

It is a time-honored way to oppose wrong policies and to produce a flesh-and-blood show of the strength of support for what you believe.

But people of common sense see riots as just plain “senseless.”

Blocking traffic?

Opening up a store windows with bricks and looting?

Setting dumpsters on fire?

Beating people up?

Yelling “Kill the Cops?”

Menacing residential streets with loaded guns?

Luring out a host of misguided students to use as riot fodder?

Risking setting fire to entire neighborhoods?

Yikes!

You’ve got to admit — rioting is risky for “children and other living things” in those cities.

There is a discerning fellow who for years has been writing under the name of “Sundance” in an online blog called The Conservative Treehouse. 

Over time, I have come to consider his “take” on unfolding events very seriously.

Two days after the Tuesday election, on Thursday, November 10, Sundance wrote about the Trump-Obama White House meeting that day.

He looked past the famous handshake and zeroed in on the big-city demonstrations and riots which had begun on the previous Wednesday and have continued since.

Asked Sundance–

“That raises the question ‘why organize the protests’?  The answer therein outlines how severely the Obama and Clinton groups estimate the risk.  They are trying to save themselves through a process of applying leverage against the risk that Donald Trump represents.

In essence Obama/Clinton agents are undermining Trump’s possible action against them by creating a narrative where the best play for President Trump is to allow the usurping agents to creep away, albeit with suitcases of cash, quietly into the night; and avoid sunlight upon their prior unlawful activity.

The meeting today between the victor Donald Trump and the defeated Barack Obama is essentially a meeting to discuss the terms of surrender.  President Obama is seeking safe passage and amnesty for prior usurpation.

In the meeting today President Obama, and by extension Hillary Clinton, are requesting safe passage using the leverage of they’ll burn down the nation if not provided – hence the protests needed last night.” (Highlighting Forum’s throughout.)

Sundance anticipated last Thursday that we would see one of two paths coming out of the Obama Administration’s brinkmanship:

  • “If the ridiculous election protests continue again tonight, then President Obama has not called them off.  That means he and Clinton received no substantive assurances, and are worried about being held to account – prosecuted and investigated.
  • If the ridiculous election protest do not happen again tonight, then President Obama has called them off.  That means he and Clinton feel more comfortable they will not be held to account – prosecuted and investigated.”

The demonstrations and riots, of course, have continued.

John Perazzo writing in Front Page Magazine reflects:

“From reading the various mainstream media accounts of these events, one comes away with the distinct impression that they are grassroots actions that began organically among ordinary, concerned, well-meaning citizens.

But alas, if one were to think that, one would be wrong.”

Front Page Magazine, founded by the venerable leftist-turned-conservative David Horowitz, includes a vast accumulation of research on how the Political Left (both individuals and organizations) have operated over by now several generations.  

Horowitz calls this invaluable resource  “Discover the Networks (DTN)”

Perazzo draws on DTN to sketch a kind of wiring diagram of the organizational spark plugs that “orchestrated” today’s anti-Trump riots—

“Contrary to media misrepresentations, many of the supposedly spontaneous, organic, anti-Trump protests we have witnessed in cities from coast to coast were in fact carefully planned and orchestrated, in advance, by a pro-Communist organization called the ANSWER Coalition, which draws its name from the acronym for ‘Act Now to Stop War and End Racism.’

ANSWER was established in 2001 by Ramsey Clark’s International Action Center, a group staffed in large part by members of the Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party. In 2002, the libertarian author Stephen Suleyman Schwartz described ANSWER as an “ultra-Stalinist network” whose members served as ‘active propaganda agents for Serbia, Iraq, and North Korea, as well as Cuba, countries they repeatedly visit and acclaim.’

Since its inception, ANSWER has consistently depicted the United States as a racist, sexist, imperialistic, militaristic nation guilty of unspeakable crimes against humanity—in other words, a wellspring of pure evil.

When ANSWER became a leading organizer of the massive post-9/11 demonstrations against the Patriot Act and the U.S. invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, it formed alliances with other likeminded entities such as Not In Our Name (a project of the Revolutionary Communist Party) and United For Peace and Justice (a pro-Castro group devoted to smearing America as a cesspool of bigotry and oppression).”

Perazzo sums up–

“In short, the anti-Trump protests that are currently making headlines are 100% contrived, fake, phony exhibitions of street theater, orchestrated entirely by radicals and revolutionaries whose chief objective is to push America ever farther to the political left. Moreover, they seek to utterly demoralize conservatives into believing that public opposition to their own (conservative) political and social values is growing more powerful, more passionate, and more widespread with each passing day.”

So there you have it on riots as continuing and dangerous gaslighting* theater of our politics today.

We will see how the demonstrations and riots** play out at the Inauguration… and then throughout the Trump Administration.

It’s going to be a very long war to restore our Republic.

Representative David Brat Warns About Rushing The House Speaker’s Election!

“Why the rush? Let’s slow down, think and properly plan this so we get it right. Look at what happened in the last two years when we didn’t make our agenda absolutely clear to the American people. If we rush this Speaker election, the American people will feel manipulated once again. This is no time to undermine morale and do an end-run around them.”
Representative Dave Brat (VA-7)

Representative Dave Brat (VA-7)

Breitbart’s Julia Hahn in her “Dave Brat Urges Delay on Speaker Vote; A ‘Better Way’ Did Not Animate This Historic Election” summarized yesterday the Virginia conservative’s plea–

“Brat explained that while Congress has fought for donor class priorities like fast tracking the Trans Pacific Partnership and ‘taking up deals on behalf of big business, Congress didn’t bother with the issues that matter to struggling Americans back home.’
‘That’s what this election was about,’ Brat writes.
‘Speaker Ryan promised last year that if elected, he would adhere to regular order. It didn’t happen,’ Brat added. ‘This year, the House didn’t even vote on a budget.’
‘Is this what the American people want?’ Brat asked.
In the piece, Brat outlined what he viewed as the mandate the American people have given to Congress:

On November 8th, Americans voted for good paying jobs, for national sovereignty, for America’s priorities over those of a global elite, for law and order, for securing the border and temporarily pausing the inflow of foreign refugees from terror hot spots until they can be properly vetted. Americans decisively voted against Obama’s rule by pen and by phone, and against Obamacare. We voted for a strong America that does not get rolled by China or Russia. We voted for trade policies that prioritize the needs of American workers; for rolling back the crushing regulations faced by small businesses, and to ‘drain the swamp’ of Washington corruption and ossified Washington cronies. It is overwhelmingly clear where America stands.’

Brat explained that while Speaker Ryan may not have been paying attention to the working men and women of this country, ‘some of us were listening and many of us have run on these breakthrough issues for years.’ ” (Highlighting Forum’s throughout.)

Readers will recall that last January 13 Sessions, Brat Deliver[ed] Letter To GOP: Side With Voters – Not Donors – On Immigration

“Instead, we should correctly define the words ‘immigration reform’ to refer exclusively to the policies our voters – and all voters – can cheer and celebrate.  Real ‘immigration reform’ protects American workers, families, and livelihoods.  Defined this way, it is always the ‘right time’ to promote ‘immigration reform.’
If we want to lay out a ‘bold, conservative agenda,’ and demonstrate that we serve the voters – and not the special interests – we should begin by advancing bills to reduce out-of-control immigration.  That is the reform our voters want, and that is what we must deliver. 
Such action will not only bolster our existing electorate, but draw millions of new voters to our party from the ranks of independents and disaffected Democrats.  Polling shows that across all parties and backgrounds, voters agree by a nearly 10:1 margin that companies should raise wages instead of bringing in new foreign labor.  This is the right policy, and the winning strategy.”

While the House Republican Conference will likely approve Ryan today, the real test comes when the 115th Congress convenes on January 3, 2017.

In the new Congress, the Speaker must gain 218 votes or a majority of those present in an on-the-record vote in public on the House floor. (Also see Politico’s Rachael Bade here.)

Read all of Julia Hahn’s post of yesterday here and the Sessions-Brat letter of last January hereand have a heart-to-heart with your House GOP member before the January Speaker vote.

Virginia Republicans Must Come To Grips With Sharia: Slogans From A State Chair & A Single Politician Won’t Do!

News4 Washington (NBC) reported yesterday evening in their Virginia Republicans Visit Mosque to Address Concerns:

“As Muslims worry about how the election of Donald Trump will affect them, Republican leaders visited a mosque on Friday in Sterling, Virginia.
The All Dulles Area Muslim Society, aka The Adams Center, invited Virginia state Republicans to join their afternoon prayer services.
‘We wanted to really address the anxiety that we know the Muslim community in our area has,’ newly reelected Rep. Barbara Comstock said.
John Whitbeck, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, said he wanted to share a message of freedom
‘One of the things they need to hear from me is that the Virginia Republican party values religious liberty and we stand with them, and they’re part of this community too,’ he said.
Many attendees of the mosque, which is one of the largest in the D.C. region, said they worry that Trump will ban Muslims from entering the country.
During the campaign, Trump said that if elected he would enact a ‘total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.’
After facing backlash, he repackaged the proposal to describe a suspension of immigration ‘from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur.’
Comstock and Whitbeck said they believed that Trump had changed his position on a Muslim ban.
‘I think he himself has changed that,’ Comstock said. “What I am saying and what I have said is that that is not constitutional and it’s really un-American.’
Whitbeck also rejected any ban on Muslims entering the country.
“The Virginia Republican Party is the party of religious liberty. We don’t support banning Muslims in the United States of America,’ he said.” (Highlighting Forum’s throughout)

        . . . . . . . . . .

“Northern Virginia resident Jafar Imam said he was particularly concerned about whether Trump would keep out Syrians, ‘those who are suffering enormously.’
‘He will not allow a single Syrian refugee coming to United States,’ Imam said.”

What Are Whitbeck & Comstock Thinking?

These Republican sachems don’t seem to realize what they are playing at.

As we explained three weeks ago in our Islam, The Adams Center, & Representative Barbara Comstock: Why Is She Trafficking With This Organization?

‘Mohamed Magid is the Imam of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS).
DiscoverTheNetworks has an extensive biography of Magid.
Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer declared in his 2015 article, Obama quietly reveals that he met with Muslim leaders with ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood–
 “The guest list identified Imam Magid as a representative of the Adams Center, a large mosque in Sterling, Virginia. He has also served as president of the Islamic Society of North America, according to the group’s website.” [Mohamed Magid is now past president of ISNA but is on the ISNA Executive Council]

. . . . . . . . . .

”the Islamic Society of North America was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case, and has admitted ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.”

With the defeat of Hillary Clinton, our country has escaped a major disaster.

Breitbart’s Julia Hahn explained earlier this month in her “Under Hillary Clinton Presidency, U.S. Muslim Population Would Exceed France’s by 2024”

“Many have warned if the U.S. continues at its current record pace of Muslim migration—or if pro-Islamic migration politicians, such as Ryan and Clinton, further increase Muslim migration—the U.S. risks following in Europe’s footsteps.
As Sen. Jeff Sessions has previously explained, ‘It’s an unpleasant, but unavoidable fact that bringing in large unassimilated flows of migrants from the Muslim world creates the conditions possible for radicalisation and extremism to take hold, just like they’re seeing in Europe.'”

Mark Steyn expands to Bill O’Reilly from Steyn’s recent first-hand knowledge–

“O’REILLY: Political commentator Mark Steyn recently returned from Europe where he attended the priest funeral and spoke with a number of people affected by the Jihad. Mr. Steyn joins us now from Colchester, VT. What did you learn there? What was the headline that you learned in Europe, Mr. Steyn?
STEYN: Well, you said at the top of the show that migrants aren’t the problem, jihadists are. And that’s true but there is a crude arithmetic here, Bill which is that the more Muslims you have, the more terrorism you have. So, that France, Belgium and Germany have very high Muslim populations, and they have a lot of terrorism. When you were in Poland and the Czech Republic, they have very few Muslims so they don’t have terrorism. And the question for Europe, and I think for the United States a few years down the line is whether you can contain this, just by the big security state. I was on the beach.
O’REILLY: Go ahead.
STEYN: Well, no, you can’t. I mean, there were soldiers everywhere in France now. Outside of schools, shopping centers, railway stations. I was on the beach at Saint-Tropez where the topless women have armed soldiers with automatic weapons patrolling between the topless women. It’s a sad sight and it’s an absurd sight. Ultimately it’s no solution.”

To add to these realities, Constitutional expert and former Federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy insists Of Course There Should Be an Ideological Test in Immigration:

“In the decades-long onslaught of radical Islam against the United States, honesty went out with the benighted notions that we should ‘know thine enemy’ and, God forbid, train our national-security agents in that enemy’s ideology, methods, and objectives.
In our alternative universe, you are not supposed to remember that there is an American constitutional framework of liberty, popular sovereignty, and equality before the law.
You are not supposed to realize that aliens are expected to exhibit fidelity to this constitutional framework as a precondition to joining our society.
You are not supposed to know that there is an Islamic law, sharia, that has far more to do with governance, economics, warfare, civil rights, domestic relations, criminal prosecution, and fashion than it does with spiritual life.
And you are absolutely not supposed to grasp that sharia is antithetical to the Constitution, to the very foundational American principle that the people may make law for themselves, live as they see fit, and chart their own destiny.
You are not supposed to connect the dots and ask, ‘Well, how is it conceivable that any sharia-adherent alien could faithfully pledge allegiance to our Constitution?’
So, instead, we shrug our shoulders, mumble something about ‘freedom of religion,’ and bury our heads back in the sand — as if the structure of government and the decision of which limb to smite for which larceny had anything to do with religion in a free society that rejects the establishment of any state religion and separates spiritual from political life.
Sharia is not religion. Sharia is a totalitarian societal structure and legal corpus that anti-American radicals seek to impose. Yes, their motivation for doing so is their interpretation of their religion — the fundamentalist, literalist construction of Islam. But that does not make sharia itself a matter of ‘religion’ in the Western sense, even if vast numbers of Arab Muslims — for whom there is no cognizable separation of mosque and state — say otherwise. If Karl Marx had said, ‘The workers must control the means of production because God says so,’ that would not have transmogrified the tyranny of Communism into the ‘freedom of religion.'”

McCarthy, author of The Grand Jihad, continues–

“There are no constitutional constraints against excluding aliens on grounds of anti-American political ideology. Excluding anti-Americans from America is common sense and was regarded as such for much of our history. In a time of radical Islamic threat to our national security, Donald Trump is right to propose that aliens from sharia-supremacist areas be carefully vetted for adherence to anti-constitutional principles.
Leftists — those notorious disciples of the Framers — claim this is unconstitutional. When shown it is not, they claim that it is against our ‘tradition’ — being, you know, big fans of American tradition. When shown that this is not the case either, when shown that our history supports ideological exclusion of anti-Americans, leftists are down to claiming, ‘It is not who we are’ — by which they always mean it is not who they are, and who they would force the rest of us to be.”

In Virginia as elsewhere, bringing in sharia-supremacists to our country is too large a threat to our national security and national values to be left to  willfully-blind deals between individual politicians and local mosques. 

The Republican Party of Virginia needs to spell out its position on importing people whose values are antithetical to our Constitution and who are unlikely to assimilate into American society.

Be Trump Strong!

Don’t let anyone mislead you: Hillary Clinton will take away our freedoms in ways some of us have not even imagined. 

The tumultuous way back will be costly and socially corrosive and decades-long.

And you — we — all of us including our children and grandchildren — will have to lead it. 

For as we all have learned over the last five years, we can no longer depend on many of our politicians.

So go vote for Donald Trump — and bring your fellow patriots!

Overpass Media: Freedom of Speech Assaulted Again in Larry Hogan’s Maryland

Lewis Porter defends a political message

Activist Lewis Porter defending his Trump Banner on the Howard County overpass (Timestamp 14:08). View YouTube !

UPDATE AFTER PRESS TIME NOV 4! A seasoned GOP stalwart just emailed–“The Republican Women of Baltimore County have been waving on overpasses and at mixed affiliation and ethnic areas.  They have been attacked by agitators at least 4 times.  They chased one away, then on another day, they chased one with a box cutter away with pepper spray.  One female came up and asked for a sign.  This was at the city line.  After receiving it, she tore it up in front of the wavers. On northern I-83, a husband parked on the shoulder before the bridge.  The SHA sent police out and he got a parking ticket $70.  Once a policeman came by and said he got a call, he was very nice, and there was no problem.  It appears the left is using the government to stop free speech (First Amendment Rights).” (Highlighting Forum’s)

* * * * *

Overpass media veteran Ed Hunter sends us this report on his overpass-media Trump messaging last Tuesday afternoon:

“This story began shortly after 2:00, when a caravan of three cars apparently of goons pulled up on the overpass bridge. Two men got out of their cars and began ripping down our signs.

The State Highway Administration (SHA) arrived seconds later. They finished the job and confiscated the signs, saying we were disturbing the peace.

Drone hovers above overpass

Drone hovers above

To add to the scene, a drone was flying overhead the whole time. Apparently it was privately operated and was controlled by a guy in a pickup truck who later landed it on the median strip, picked it up, and drove off with it.

So three things happened in about three minutes– the goons arrived, started to take down the signs, and one started a brief dust-up with me; then the SHA arrived; then the drone appeared above us. It certainly looked  planned and coordinated.”

Highway Department

The incident occurred on Tuesday November 1, shortly after 2:00 pm, Hunter reports, at an overpass on

I-95, a Howard County spot where for years Hunter and fellow activist Lewis Porter have been displaying conservative political messages viewed by thousands of motorists.

Activist Hunter had arrived about an hour earlier and put up the signs: “AMERICA FIRST….TRUMP” facing one side of the highway and “TRUMP….CAN’T BE BOUGHT” facing the other.

Hunter continued–

About 10 minutes later, the Howard County cops came. They have the power of arrest, but they did not help the SHA.

Highway Department tears down signs.

SHA men finish tearing down signs (Timestamp 14:07)

The county police have known us for years and wave as they pass by.

One Howard County cop warned me, ‘They are baiting you… don’t take the bait.’

Later the cops told us, “You can go.”

All of this happened under the eye of the goons in the cars parked up the road watching.

It was just another day in Anti-Trump, Hogan-controlled Maryland.”

Is Representative Barbara Comstock Dependent On The Support Of H-1B Employers Who “Prefer Alien Workers to Americans”

What does Mrs. Comstock have against young American men and women
who have just put years and tuition into getting their IT credentials?

As we again declared a week ago yesterday, VA-10 incumbent GOP Representative Barbara Comstock has been a strong proponent of H-1B visas.

This week Bryan Griffith and David North of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) published their 

H-1B Employer Maps: Dependent, Willful Violator, and Debarred:
Thousands Prefer Alien Workers to Americans

Voters in VA-10 — and indeed throughout northern Virginia — will want to open the map and enlarge the northern Virginia area to see H-1B “dependent” employers in Ashburn, Sterling, Leesburg, Potomac, and more.

The Center for Immigration Studies explains

“The Center for Immigration Studies has produced two maps using publicly available Department of Labor (DOL) data. The first map points out the employer addresses that have identified their use of H-1B as above average. The second map deals with a smaller group of employers who have been identified by the Department as abusing the program.
The H-1B program allows employers to bring skilled workers (usually with college degrees) to the United States on nonimmigrant visas. The three-year visas can be renewed for another three years, and the visas can be kept alive, virtually forever, if the employer has applied for a permanent immigrant visa for the worker in question. There are some minimal and ineffective labor market protections for these workers. Under all circumstances they can bring their spouses and children (under H-4 visas) with them to the United States – and under some circumstances these aliens can work legally; there are no wage protections for the H-4s.
On the first map, there are over 2,000 employers identified who, actively and publicly, prefer alien workers for at least some jobs to U.S. ones. The formal name for this group of employers sounds like it comes from the field of abnormal psychology: they are ‘H-1B dependent.’ This is the definition of the term: an employer with 25 full-time workers or fewer, with eight or more of them H-1Bs; with 26-50 workers, there are 13 or more H-1Bs; and with 51 or more there are 15 percent or more H-1Bs. Most users of the H-1B visa, in general, are not H-1B dependent.”  (Highlighting Forum’s)

This first CIS map illustrates in local Virginia detail what we posted a week ago yesterday (scroll down in this link)–

Breitbart’s Neil Munro reveals in his Hillary Clinton’s H-1B Outsourcing Program Has 100,000 Foreign Workers in Midwest White-Collar Jobs–

“Currently, the federal government is providing multi-year H-1B work visas to roughly 650,000 foreign graduates to work in jobs sought by American graduates.
The foreign graduates fill 100,000 teaching, research and medical jobs at American colleges, they fill engineering jobs at Caterpillar in Illinois, up to 70 accounting jobs at McDonalds’ headquarters in Ohio, plus many more medical, teaching, management and software jobs in Florida, Connecticut, and California and throughout the United States.”

………..

“Many of the H-1B visa-holders manage to convert their work-permits into Green Cards, so they can become long-term residents of the United States. For example, data provided by one visa-tracking site, MyVisaJobs.com, shows that the H-1B program has pumped at least 100,000 foreign professionals into Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, where they now compete against white-collar Americans.”

Munro pointed to young Americans as especially vulnerable–

“Each year, 4 million Americans turn 18 years old and enter the workforce. But, each year, the federal government also imports 2 million immigrants, guest-workers, refugees and asylum seekers and illegal immigrants. The inflow of professionals and workers drives down the salaries of American white-collar and blue-collar workers while boosting income for investors and employers.
The inflow also crowd the schools used by the children of lower-income Americans, sharply increases tax transfers from Americans to immigrants, reduces innovation and productivity, pushes many lower-skilled Americans out of the workforce, and enables large-scale violence by immigrant communities and crime against Americans who do not live in protected neighborhoods.
Few of the elite leaders in the GOP or the Democratic Party care about the costs or risks of mass immigration.(Highlighting Forum’s)

Her support of H-1B visas is now Reason #10-squared not to vote for Barbara Comstock, while being sure to vote for Donald Trump.

* * * * * * * * *

Mrs. Comstock, as most of us know, will not support her Party’s nominee for president, Donald Trump.

We have collected here for our readers’ ready reference our nine recent essays objecting to Representative Barbara Comstock’s reelection.

It is truly deplorable (if not narcissistic in view of the stakes for all Americans) for Mrs. Comstock to try to enable the election in Virginia of Corrupt and Hard-Left Hillary Clinton.

It is truly deplorable for Mrs. Comstock to advance the globalist schemes of Speaker Paul Ryan.

It is truly deplorable for Mrs. Comstock to put the cheap-imported-labor agenda of the US Chamber of Commerce ahead of the interests of regular Americans.

Today the GOP holds 246 seats; 218 are necessary for a majority.

In the Lame Duck session (right around the corner, November 14!), the November 8 loss of a celebrity Paul Ryan supporter could have the same restraining effect on Mr. Ryan’s immigration and Obamatrade schemes as did the loss of Eric Cantor on Mr. Boehner’s similar schemes.

Northern Virginia White Collar Workers–
Beware the H-1B Menace!

The authoritative NumbersUSA wrote us on October 11–

“Rep. Barbara Comstock (R), running for reelection in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District, and challenger LuAnn Bennett (D) faced each other in an October 6th debate.  Many topics, including immigration, were covered in the debate hosted by the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce.  While Rep. Comstock came out against comprehensive immigration reform and in favor of securing the border, she also voiced support for increasing H-1B visa numbers:
‘Let’s get what we can come together and compromise on today,’ Comstock said. ‘Today we have the votes for H1B visas, today we have the votes for border security.’ Taking those votes today, the congresswoman said, will move the economy forward. (Source)
Other articles also reiterated Comstock’s support for increasing H-1B numbers:
Both candidates favored simplifying the tax system, offering more H-1B visas to highly skilled foreign workers…. (Source)
Comstock said she prefers a piecemeal approach, making advancements on areas of consensus like increasing the number of visas for highly skilled workers. (Source)
Please send a fax to Rep. Comstock express disappointment with her willingness to increase H-1B visa numbers.

“Many of the H-1B visa-holders manage to convert their work-permits into Green Cards, so they can become long-term residents of the United States. For example, data provided by one visa-tracking site, MyVisaJobs.com, shows that the H-1B program has pumped at least 100,000 foreign professionals into Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, where they now compete against white-collar Americans.”

Munro pointed to young Americans as especially vulnerable–

“Each year, 4 million Americans turn 18 years old and enter the workforce. But, each year, the federal government also imports 2 million immigrants, guest-workers, refugees and asylum seekers and illegal immigrants. The inflow of professionals and workers drives down the salaries of American white-collar and blue-collar workers while boosting income for investors and employers.
The inflow also crowd the schools used by the children of lower-income Americans, sharply increases tax transfers from Americans to immigrants, reduces innovation and productivity, pushes many lower-skilled Americans out of the workforce, and enables large-scale violence by immigrant communities and crime against Americans who do not live in protected neighborhoods.
Few of the elite leaders in the GOP or the Democratic Party care about the costs or risks of mass immigration.(Highlighting Forum’s)

Her support of H-1B visas is Reason #10 not to vote for Barbara Comstock, while being sure to vote for Donald Trump.

Islam, The Adams Center, & Representative Barbara Comstock: Why Is She Trafficking With This Organization?

RELATED STORY OCT 25 – – John Guandolo: In This War Minnesota’s Twin Cities Are Lost “After spending all of last week in Minnesota, UTT’s professional assessment of the enemy situation is this:  the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota – known as the ‘Twin Cities’ – are in enemy-held territory.  They are, at least for the time being, lost – meaning, they are under the control of a collaborative jihadist/marxist element there.”

Last Friday, Representative Barbara Comstock — along with her Democrat opponent LuAnn Bennett– appeared at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS Center) to plead her case for reelection to the Congress from Virginia’s 10th District.

Click here and here for news coverage of this event.

Mohamed Magid is the Imam of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS).

DiscoverTheNetworks has an extensive biography of Magid. **

Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer declared in his 2015 article, Obama quietly reveals that he met with Muslim leaders with ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood–

 “The guest list identified Imam Magid as a representative of the Adams Center, a large mosque in Sterling, Virginia. He has also served as president   of the Islamic Society of North America, according to the group’s website.” **

. . . . . . . . . .

”the Islamic Society of North America was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case, and has admitted ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Finally, watch Clanson Trahan of the United West in his YouTube Exposing Infiltration of Muslim Operatives in The Obama ‘Regime‘”

“There are reportedly [at least] six Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or Islamist activists in the Obama regime.
Tom Trento of the United West is dedicated to exposing the radical agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Why is Mrs. Comstock trafficking with this organization?

Consider also our July 2015 post Representative Barbara Comstock — Speaking At A Ramadan Event With Questionable Auspices–

where we wrote – –

“We are not suggesting that Mrs. Comstock is some secret Sharia adherent.

What we are urging is that she — and those Virginia state lawmakers who sponsored a General Assembly commendation (click here) for the ADAMS Center (click here then here for our earlier stories)  — begin their (apparently neglected) due diligence on Sharia and Civilization Jihad.

This is no time for willful blindness.

Reason #9 why Barbara Comstock should not be entrusted with our votes: she simply does not have the Right Stuff to protect Virginians against what Andrew McCarthy terms the Grand Jihad.
