Loudoun HS Students Protest President’s “Foreign Terrorist” XO–They Are Entitled To Their Own Opinion But Not To A Lack Of Understanding Of Our Institutions And History

LoudounNow’s Danielle Nadler reports that last FridayHundreds of Loudoun Students ‘Walk Out’ in Support of Immigrants”–

 “After watching the confusion and fear that followed President Donald Trump’s travel restrictions on refugees and travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries, Rida Ali felt the need to do something.
The 16-year-old Ashburn resident is a first generation American. Her mother is from Yemen and her father from Pakistan. She took to Twitter and suggested to a few of her friends that they plan a ‘walk out,’ to leave class for 10-15 minutes to make a statement about how empty the school—the nation, really—would be without immigrants or descendants of immigrants.
What she didn’t expect was that hundreds of students would join her on campuses throughout Loudoun County. ‘It spread so far,’ she said. ‘I had no idea that any other school was going to do this.’
Walk outs were reported this afternoon at least eight Loudoun County high schools. Four of the largest demonstrations took place at Briar Woods, Rock Ridge, Potomac Falls and Broad Run, where Ali is a junior. The school system reported that, in total, 619 students participated in the walk out.”

Loudoun County, Virginia may have the best high-school civics and US history classes available, and may indeed require every student to take them.  But for the sake of our discussion, let’s stipulate that their high-school civics and US history are top of the line.

Loudoun County, after all, “has been ranked first in the United States in median household income among jurisdictions with a population of 65,000 or more.”

Weighing The Merits Of An Issue Versus “Virtue Signaling”

The demonstrating students, however, seem to base their objections to the president’s Executive Order on vacuities–

“a statement about how empty the school—the nation, really—would be without immigrants or descendants of immigrants” or “America is more than ‘just white'”

But simply expressing solidarity with classmates through “virtue signaling” doesn’t make a case.

Perhaps parents and teachers could guide the demonstrators to fresh sources — enabling them to look deeper into some serious concerns about immigration policy and assimilation.

First, of course, one should read the full text of the Executive Order, including its fact-gathering provisions.  As we pointed out in an earlier story, Reports Required in Trump’s Refugee Executive Order Can Tell Americans “What’s Going On” With Our Immigrants & Visitors!

Here are six such expert voices —

“We need to move beyond the ‘are we targeting Muslims’ nonsense and get to the critical question: How do we embrace our Islamic friends while excluding our sharia-supremacist enemies?”
As McCarthy explained in an earlier story, “Of Course There Should be an Ideological Test in Immigration”–
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?’”
“Patriotic integration versus multicuturalism is a moral issue. America’s decision on how to integrate newcomers—through patriotic assimilation (traditional Americanization) or the contemporary approach of multiculturalism-group consciousness—is a moral issue that will define the character of our citizenship and our constitutional democracy.”
 “A review of information compiled by a Senate committee in 2016 reveals that 72 individuals from the seven countries covered in President Trump’s vetting executive order have been convicted in terror cases since the 9/11 attacks.”
  • Then-senator, now Attorney General, Jeff Sessions told us in 2015 of the extent of immigration to the US–
“Immigration Adds 1 New Los Angeles Every 3 Years”
  • And finally scholar Stella Morabito warns parents and students Today’s Riot-Prone Mobs Are A Product Of America’s Cult-Like Education System !
    “By high school too many are become dependent upon their overlords in the education establishment telling them what to say, what to believe, what to do: Go into the streets to protest Trump’s inauguration! . . . Get a degree in pseudo-studies. Don’t read classics (Eeewwww, dead white guys.)”

Free men and women, in our view, welcome robust debate among those with various perspectives. 

Patriots should disdain servile “safe spaces.”

The sources we suggest may or may not change the demonstrators’ minds, but grappling with this material will enable them to frame their views as serious young citizens.

UPDATED! Organize–The Now-Indispensable Role Of The Trump Movement!

UPDATE FEBRUARY 9!  The Spirit of America: Conservative Grassroots Leaders Plan Massive Pro-Trump Demonstrations Nationwide
Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle reveals “Conservative grassroots leaders are planning a series of massive pro-President Donald Trump rallies nationwide, Breitbart News has learned exclusively. On Feb. 27 and March 4, the rallies—dubbed the Spirit of America Rallies—will spring up nationwide in cities and towns across America.”
* * * * * * * * *

Nearly a month ago we declared

The extent and intensity of the pushback against president-elect Donald Trump — even before he takes office on Friday, January 20 — tells patriots what America barely escaped from a Hillary Clinton victory: completion of the Obama transformation of America!

And not just more open borders and more job-killing trade deals and the acceleration of Muslim refugee importation. 

But a Clinton Administration intent on using Federal power to impose even more Cultural Marxism on our state and local governments!

Think consent decrees on police departments (part of the “war on cops”) and the widespread implementation of Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH).

Now, post swearing in, the Organized Left is striking back — from inaugural demonstrations in Washington, D. C. to physical attacks on conservative speakers in Berkeley, California and New York City to previously unthinkable manipulations of our Federal courts.

All of this pushback has dominated the news cycles over the last two weeks.

Your GOP members of the Congress (House and Senate) and your GOP state leaders should now be continually and visibly speaking out for the president as Mr. Trump takes on the Washington Establishment to “drain the swamp” for all Americans.

In two states next to the national capital, 248,343 voters supported then-candidate Trump in the Maryland presidential primary and 356,840 voters supported then-candidate Trump in the Virginia presidential primary.

Surely these Trump Core voters can now organize to push their own state’s GOP to get behind the president’s program energetically.

The November 8, 2016 Trump victory has given Americans a last reprieve.

If we don’t take advantage of the time Donald Trump bought us, our country will continue to be “transformed” inexorably by the Obama-Clinton legacy.

Remember November 8 was just the beginning.

As Rush explained last Friday–

“It’s designed to dispirit you. It’s designed to depress you. It’s designed to make you think you’re never gonna really succeed at this. It’s designed to make you think that they’re gonna be able to get rid of Trump next week, next month. It’s designed to make you think they’re gonna make Trump cave. It’s designed to make you think they’re gonna tick Trump off so much, they’re gonna make even Trump think it can’t be done, he’s gonna throw up his hands and say, ‘You know what Pence, you can have it, I’m leaving.’
“Whatever they have to do to make you think this is a lost cause, they will do and they are doing. And it’s going to continue. And Trump is not going to slow down, and he’s not going to pull back. He’s going to continue. He’s got people around him who are not gonna slow down and who are not gonna pull back. And he the people he has around him are hell-bent on defeating these people and getting them out of the way.
. . . . . . . . . .
They still haven’t realized what’s hit them, I don’t think. They’re gonna make up polls, approval polls. They’re gonna try to tell you Trump’s the most unpopular president after three weeks that we’ve ever had in America. They’re gonna make you think that everybody that voted for Trump is abandoning him, except you. They want you to think you’re alone. They want you to think that your associates and like-minded voters have all abandoned you and you’re the only guy still pulling for Trump. You’re the only person out there still hoping and praying this all happens. They want to bust up the coalition. It is vicious. This is exactly what it has always been going to look like.”

If our president is to succeed, his supporters must come together and stay together to ensure that GOP leaders —from the Congress to state capitals come out of the shadows and speak loudly for his program!

Reports Required in Trump’s Refugee Executive Order Can Tell Americans “What’s Going On” With Our Immigrants & Visitors!

Breitbart’s Michael Patrick Leahy reported yesterday–

“President Trump signed an executive order late Friday which temporarily bars refugees from entering the United States.

Trump signed the order on refugees while at the Pentagon, minutes after General James Mattis was sworn in as Secretary of Defense by Vice President Mike Pence at a brief ceremony which the president attended.

The executive order, “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States,” contained these key elements:

  • Suspended the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program for 120 days, prohibiting the arrival of refugees into the United States from any country during that period
  • Ordered the Secretaries of State and Homeland Security to undertake a complete review of the refugee vetting process
  • Permanently banned Syrian refugees until President Trump determined otherwise, and
  • Lowered the ceiling of refugees allowed to enter the United States during FY 2017 to 50,000.”

But we should also celebrate these extraordinary transparency and reporting requirements in the Executive Order! (Highlighting added.)

“Sec. 10. Transparency and Data Collection. (a) To be more transparent with the American people, and to more effectively implement policies and practices that serve the national interest, the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Attorney General, shall, consistent with applicable law and national security, collect and make publicly available within 180 days, and every 180 days thereafter:

(i) information regarding the number of foreign nationals in the United States who have been charged with terrorism-related offenses while in the United States; convicted of terrorism-related offenses while in the United States; or removed from the United  States based on terrorism-related activity, affiliation, or material support to a terrorism-related organization, or any other national security reasons since the date of this order or the last reporting period, whichever is later;

(ii) information regarding the number of foreign nationals in the United States who have been radicalized after entry into the United States and engaged in terrorism-related acts, or who have provided material support to terrorism-related organizations in countries that pose a threat to the United States, since the date of this order or the last reporting period, whichever is later; and

(iii) information regarding the number and types of acts of gender-based violence against women, including honor killings, in the United States by foreign nationals, since the date of this order or the last reporting period, whichever is later; and

(iv) any other information relevant to public safety and security as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Attorney General, including information on the  immigration status of foreign nationals charged with major offenses.

(b) The Secretary of State shall, within one year of the date of this order, provide a report on the estimated long-term costs of the USRAP at the Federal, State, and local levels.”

These reports can build a wide base of public understanding and thus support for this major Trump initiative.

Leo Hohmann Exposes Our Toxic Immigration Practices — Trump Responding in the Nick of Time!

“We are bringing this enemy here on air-conditioned planes as legal refugees, legal guest workers, legal green-card holders, legal students, legal entrepreneurs, and legal professors and preachers.” Leo Hohmann

In his new book, Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration and Resettlement, veteran investigative reporter Leo Hohmann cuts through the gaslighting that has obscured the dark side of the refugee resettlement program and some other avenues of legal immigration.

This book couldn’t be more relevant to where we are right now, as president Trump begins strong actions on immigration and refugee reforms.

During the campaign candidate Trump made the sensible suggestion to halt the flow of refugees from countries with Jihadist violence, until “we figure out what is going on.”

He demanded that we do a better job of screening immigrants to keep out Jihadists and to favor those who love America and its values.

In his inaugural address, he vowed to hire American – which logically would include stopping the replacement of American workers with cheap foreign labor through the H1-B and H-2B visa programs.

Refugee Resettlement — A “Rigged System?”

Most encouraging, however, Trump also has a pretty good track record of calling out rigged systems.

And, as Hohmann describes it, much of the legal immigration system is rigged against American workers.

First, we have no say in picking the pool of potential refugees. The United Nations does this, habitually leaving behind persecuted Christians. Nine American voluntary agencies are paid for resettlement services by the head – with millions of dollars at stake.

But, despite the nominal religious affiliation of six of the nine voluntary agencies – such as the U.S. Conference of Bishops and World Church Services – local resettlement actions tend to occur quietly, to the point of secrecy. Rarely does a receiving community have a chance fully to learn about resettlement plans, or to debate the issues involved in bringing in this new source of often-unassimilable cheap labor.

Further, as a condition of doing business, these government funded programs operate under a  gag rule against Christians sharing their faith with Muslims.

“An Entirely Different Beast”

Hohmann argues that, since major rule changes in 1980, the refugee program has fundamentally changed from a humanitarian attempt to protect people displaced by a “well-founded fear of persecution” based on religious, political, or ethnic identity — and “evolved into an entirely different beast.”

“The humanitarian face of the refugee movement is not what it seems. Behind that veneer, in which some very needy people are brought to America, is what actually amounts to an invasion of sharia-adherent Muslims who have absolutely no intention of assimilating into our society and respecting American values of individual freedom, equality of women, tolerance of homosexuals, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion.”

Hohmann is concerned not only about “‘radical’ Islam, but regular mainstream Islam — the kind that teaches jihad and sharia as spelled out in the Quran and the hadith. It is true that only certain Muslims take the principles of jihad seriously enough to attack us, but let’s not kid ourselves and say Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance.”

Hohmann states that “51 percent of American Muslims would prefer to have their own sharia courts outside the legal system ruled by the U.S. Constitution. Worse, nearly a quarter believe that the use of violent jihad is justified in establishing sharia.”  (Sharia — click here — is the Islamic code which includes subjugation of women, harsh physical punishments, and total Islamic domination of society.)

Hohmann warns — look to Europe to see our future if we do not change course now.

A Handy Road Map for Action

Hohmann brings some special qualities to the work: clear writing, first-hand experience covering the stories of particular immigrant-seed communities, the insight to draw wider significance out of these stories, and an easy familiarity with the work of other pioneers in exposing the threat, as documented in his many footnotes.

The book is a quick education, a wake-up call, and a call to action.

And, in its final pages it is also a call to prayer.

By Trump’s election, we may have dodged a bullet in halting near-uncontrolled immigration, but we still have Muslim communities with little interest in assimilating and an Islamist leadership bent on superseding the American Constitution with sharia law.

Hohmann’s recommendations on how to respond are even more apt now.

Hohmann tells us first to get our minds right:

  • Learn about how the refugee settlement program works, how it actually affects American communities, and “how it is profit-motivated while presenting itself as part of a false humanitarianism.”
  • In all forums – from interfaith dialogues to Facebook – fight gag rules on factual discussions of the ways that traditional Islamic doctrine is directly opposed to our rights of free speech and religion.
  • Resist the big lies:
    • Refuse to accept arguments about a moral equivalency between Islam and Christianity.
    • Reject out of hand the proposition that the Christian faith is equally guilty in turning to violence. Stop apologizing for the Crusades!
    • Do not accept the argument that poverty or lack of opportunity is the root cause of Jihad.
    • Expose the falsehoods of labels like “bigot,” “racist,” or “Islamophobic.” Insist that political narratives about our motives “stand up to the facts.”

He also urges readers to take political action:

  • “Resist the secret planting of refugees that are hostile to America and are impossible to fully vet.”
  • Become activists in  your community. Insist on accountability from local and state officials on any new resettlement plans. Push for details on numbers and costs involved.
  • Nationally, work for the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act.

In his closing pages, Hohmann makes a heartfelt call upon Christians to fight back against the spiritual challenge of leftism, globalism, and militant Islam.

  • Continue to provide food, clothing, and shelter to needy refugees, but eliminate the gag rules on Christians.
  • Reach out and share the “pure, authentic, unchanging gospel of Jesus Christ with those of other faiths.”
  • Unmask the globalists as purveyors of a “counterfeit unity and a false peace.”
  • Understand that lukewarm faith is no protection in a full-blown spiritual struggle.
  • Wake up, stand up, and speak up.

Presenting many voices in this book, Hohmann most movingly quotes the words of Isik Abla, a former Muslim. Abla urges Christians to face the challenge — making use of the spiritual defenses handed down in our tradition:

“Get on your knees and start fasting together. Start putting together prayer groups. America, this is a serious battle…. I am calling you today, if you don’t have zeal, start praying. Say, ‘God I need zeal.’ I am praying for you, America, ‘Please God, give them zeal’.”

Larry Hogan’s Bureaucrats Shut Down Latest Overpass Display — “Nightmare Is Over”!

Maryland activists Ed Hunter and Lewis Porter reported that yesterday afternoon Maryland State Highway Administration apparatchiks took down their overpass display on Gorman Road Bridge over I-95 between Washington, D.C., and Baltimore.

But the two activists declared they were able to keep their display up for about an hour before the Highway Meanies arrived.

Of course, abridging free speech rights no longer bothers the Big Left, nor rarely troubles the Establishment GOP whether in Washington, D. C., or in Annapolis.

Maryland Establishment virtue-signalers bewail Donald Trump’s election by regular Americans. 

And during the last presidential campaign, many of the public voices of Mr. Trump’s own party in Maryland belittled themselves by deploring or ignoring their nominee.**

Our Political Class nationally simply doesn’t understand how disheartened so many thoughtful but civil American patriots have been to see our constitutional practices and core American values trashed for eight years during the Obama Regime — and with no effective pushback from an unmanned GOP leadership!

That is why these eight Obama years were a nightmare!

The Trump Reprieve—And The Indispensable Role Of The Trump Movement!

The extent and intensity of the pushback against president-elect Donald Trump — even before he takes office on Friday, January 20 — tells patriots what America barely escaped from a Hillary Clinton victory: completion of the Obama transformation of America!

And not just more open borders and more job-killing trade deals and the acceleration of Muslim refugee importation. 

But a Clinton Administration intent on using Federal power to impose even more Cultural Marxism on our state and local governments!

Think consent decrees on police departments (part of the “war on cops”) and the widespread implementation of Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH).

Had Mrs. Clinton won, moreover, the House Republican leadership was prepared to move ahead on Big Immigration.

Only a Donald Trump could have put together a campaign strong enough to break the Clinton Machine — and to start to reshape a Republican Party whose leadership had become globalist and whose first instinct had been to capitulate to a Red-Green-Axis-oriented White House.

Thanks to Trump’s election, we have a reprieve from the destructive Obama-Clinton sentence for Americans.

How Should Patriots Use This Providential Reprieve To Restore America?

That is where a Trump Movement comes into play.

For the Trump election is hardly the end of the battle.

It is rather the start of our own long march through our government and our institutions to restore our historic values.

Tomorrow confirmation hearings begin for senator Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General of the United States.

Trump supporters everywhere should be leaning on their United States Senators to confirm Mr. Sessions.

There are more than purely legal achievements in Sessions’ strong record–

Back in April 2015, Hudson Institute senior fellow John Fonte wrote about Jeff Sessions–

“Clearly, the political leader of the conservative populist coalition is the indefatigable Senator Sessions. Day in and day out, for the past two years, Sessions has been issuing memos and talking points, giving speeches, and making media appearances explicating a coherent populist message. The Alabamian is a conviction politician. He is not ‘positioning’ himself for some strategic advantage; rather, he favors limiting (not eliminating) legal immigration because he believes doing so is best for the American people.” (Highlighting Forum’s.)

Don’t count on your local Republican Party to use this precious reprieve to advance patriots’ goals. 

Typically they restrict their role to electioneering for GOP incumbents, not acting as engines of accountability.

We can rarely push them to ask incumbents questions like “why did you vote for last year’s Paul Ryan budget?” — or get local GOP meetings to discuss exigent concerns like accelerating Muslim importation into the US.

Last month we explained–

Trump Patriots acting through their own well-organized statewide organizations can have a strong voice for the new president’s campaign priorities that will be heard by their Congressional delegations.

VDARE’s James Kirkpatrick elaborates

“Similarly, within the GOP, the critical need is to develop a crop of ‘Donald Trump Republicans’ at the local and state levels, running in his name and on the populist platform he campaigned for. Even if Trump himself does not explicitly endorse insurgent candidates, this can be explained away as simply something he has to do because of his position as head of the GOP. The debate should always be framed as though Trump wants populists to take over the GOP—even if he says nothing of the kind. This is a Narrative the Main Stream Media will be eager to believe and to magnify.”

The Trump Reprieve is our last chance — let’s get to work!

Remember the Other Team — from both parties — has not stopped working. They are not going to allow a second reprieve if the first fails.

Syrian Muslims to WV–Does Republican Senator Shelley Moore Capito Want To Be Seen As The “Frau Merkel” of West Virginia?

Today national refugee resettlement expert Ann Corcoran highlights in a post the fact that the Obama State Department approves 100 Syrian Muslims for West Virginia state capitol

“Where were you WV Republican Senator Shelley Moore Capito and Republican Rep. Alex Mooney?  Only two choices!—either asleep-at-the-switch or in support of this move by a local ‘interfaith’ group to be named a federal subcontracting agency for the purpose of beginning a new refugee resettlement site in the state.  (Charleston previously received a few refugees through Catholic Charities, but no where near this scale).
If Capito and Mooney had put up significant opposition, we would have heard about it and this decision might have turned out differently. [Highlighting Forum’s throughout.]
Does Obama think he can stick it to West Virginia (Trump territory) voters in his final weeks in office? And, where is Joe [Manchin]?  He must be all for it too!”

Both senators Capito and Manchin are either now, or in the case of centrist Manchin will be in the coming Congress, members of the powerful Appropriations Committee: they are hardly without influence in Washington, D.C.’s Deep State!

Frau Merkel and Berlin!

But Dutch patriot Geert Wilders this week declared about the Berlin terror attack of Monday evening–

“Let no-one tell you that only the perpetrators of these crimes are to blame. The politicians, who welcomed Islam into their country, are guilty as well. And it is not just Frau Merkel in Germany, it is the entire political elite in Western Europe. Out of political-correctness, they have deliberately turned a blind eye to Islam. They have refused to inform themselves about its true nature.”

Time for West Virginia Trumpers of both parties to have a heart-to-heart with their senators and Alex Mooney!

Transition Storm Warnings: Time For Movement Trumpers To Organize By State?

“There’s a famous story about President Franklin D. Roosevelt meeting with a group of progressive activists. They told him to pursue a certain political program. After the meeting, FDR supposedly said: ‘All right, you’ve convinced me. Now go out there and put pressure on me!’ I was reminded of this story when President-Elect Trump recently spoke in Ohio. He urged activists to fight just as hard for his policies as they did to put him in office. After all, what soon to be President Trump believes or doesn’t believe is less important than whether there is sufficient political pressure behind his agenda.” — James Kirkpatrick

As Donald Trump takes office, he needs his base pushing hard behind him to achieve his crucial campaign priorities.

Ann Coulter today tweeted the background bluntly –“Only 1 presidential candidate called for a wall. A Muslim ban. Deportation of illegals. His own party denounced him. He won in a landslide.”

Coulter pointed to “The Preibus-Trump power struggle.”

Conservative Review’s (CR) Daniel Horowitz suggested in a podcast that the Trump Transition was “making the Establishment great again”–

“Yet, somehow we take it as a given that in a Republican administration the most powerful cabinet pick — secretary of State — could be given to someone who is pro-Common Core, anti-sanctions, pro-carbon tax, anti-energy independence, and a leader in the homosexual agenda.
Now we hear that John Bolton might not be picked for deputy secretary of State, while liberals such as Elliot Abrams and Richard Haass are being considered instead.
This is part of a pattern of choosing the path to least resistance. Kris Kobach was passed over as DHS secretary and likely as deputy as well for the same reason.
Finally, we show how Democrats never surrender their principles even when they lose power. Why do we surrender ours when we win?
John Kasich won’t even fight for a pro-life bill because he refuses to stand up to the legal profession, yet liberals have no problem thwarting federal immigration law.” (Highlighting Forum’s throughout.)
(Senior Editor Horowitz also refers to Alex Isenstadt‘s & Kenneth P. Vogel’s Politico post, Divisions deepen inside Trump Tower.)

CR’s Jordan Schachtel reveals about the Secretary of State-designate that “America-last Rex Tillerson has quite a cozy relationship with the Islamic supremacist nation of Qatar”!

“Rex Tillerson’s Qatar is not the real Qatar. One is left to speculate: How many other dictatorial countries has he provided cover for in order to curry favor with their leaders?”

Last February Breitbart’s Julia Hahn exposed OMB chief-designate Mick Mulvaney as “Pro-Amnesty Mick Mulvaney: Immigration Most Important Issue To South Carolina Voters”–

“Moreover, video footage, captured during the height of the Gang of Eight amnesty push, reveals Mulvaney publicly demeaning his conservative constituents and colleagues, such as influential Iowa Congressman Rep. Steve King for opposing Rep. Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio’s agenda of mass amnesty—suggesting that such views are ‘absurd’ and ‘stupid.'”
. . . . . . . . . .
“Similarly, in a congressional hearing last year, Mulvaney criticized Heritage scholar Robert Rector, who is considered to be “the father of the 1996 welfare-reform law,” for providing U.S. lawmakers with factual evidence that granting amnesty to poor migrants would strain the nation’s federal welfare programs at the expense of Mulvaney’s own taxpaying constituents. Mulvaney vehemently objected to Rector’s analysis and suggested that admitting poor and uneducated migrants who are ‘literally starving to death’ in foreign countries would be a boon to America.

To pick two (one Blue, one Purple) states with which we have some familiarity, Maryland had 248,343 Trump primary supporters and Virginia had 356,840 Trump primary supporters. The GOP primary vote likely reflects the core Trump supporters in these two states.  Yet, in both states, the GOP Establishment disdained and was hostile to Trump although he won the Maryland primary and had a plurality in the Virginia primary.

ADD-ON December 21:  West Virginia — right next to Maryland and Virginia — had 157,238 Trump primary supporters or 77% of the GOP primary. Donald Trump carried West Virginia by 68.7 % in the general election winning every county.

Trump Patriots acting through their own well-organized statewide organizations can have a strong voice for the new president’s campaign priorities that will be heard by their Congressional delegations.

VDARE’s James Kirkpatrick elaborates

“Similarly, within the GOP, the critical need is to develop a crop of ‘Donald Trump Republicans’ at the local and state levels, running in his name and on the populist platform he campaigned for. Even if Trump himself does not explicitly endorse insurgent candidates, this can be explained away as simply something he has to do because of his position as head of the GOP. The debate should always be framed as though Trump wants populists to take over the GOP—even if he says nothing of the kind. This is a Narrative the Main Stream Media will be eager to believe and to magnify.”

One more Kirkpatrick insight – –

“Thus, the most effective way to rise against Trump, if it becomes necessary is to claim it is being done in his own name. In Imperial Russia, currently perhaps the most hated society among American intellectuals and journalists, there was supposedly the saying, ‘If only the Tsar knew!’ The presumption was if only the leader knew the extent of the problems that were being concealed from him by his wicked advisors, the people would be saved.”

Stay tuned as we track Trump Deplorables organizing!

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?

manchin

“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.
