Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society launches election year campaign


How is it that a non profit can use MY tax dollars -and yours too – to do this crap???

Refugee Resettlement Watch

They call it…. VOTE FOR WELCOME!

As a non-profit federal grantee they need to be especially careful about lobbying and getting in to electoral political activities.  See here.

If the Refugee Admissions Program survives, the most important reform we need is a prohibition (in the law itself) on federal refugee contractors***, like HIAS, from political organizing and advocacy/lobbying while being funded by you and me, the taxpayers.

Better still, take all nine contractors out of the resettlement business completely!

HIAS received over $186 million from the federal Treasury since 2008, here. And, they have been organizing rallies like this one (with Keith Ellison) against President Trump.

Now this….

If Levi Strauss is going to support gun control for ANY reason I am done buying them. Unless they have come from the thrift store. And maybe no then.

Arizona: Refugee couple arrested, lied on refugee application, terror connection found


But Trump and all the rest of us are RACIST for bringing up the fact that these “refugees” are anything but, and have no wish to integrate and assimilate, to learn our language, or to subscribe to the American way of life. Gee, I wonder if they were receiving public benefits such as food stamps, welfare, and housing assistance as well? Care to take bets on that?

I first spotted this story at Arizona Central and my first thought was—-here we go again. Although labeled as “refugees,” are they going to tell us anything about the nationality of the lying husband and wife who got in to the US during the Obama Administration?

But after looking around at other stories about yesterday’s breaking news, I see we do have more information this time.  However, my big red flag question is this:

How did these alleged terrorist Africans (supposedly Ethiopians, but their names are Somali names) get to Arizona via China?

arizona welcomes refugees

I checked Wrapsnet and sure enough we do process a few refugees in to the US from China!  How insane is that! With all the refugee fraud going on around the world, why would we trust anyone (Africans no less!) coming in via China?

A day like no other


I have a kitten. I didn’t plan to get one. We already have two cats. But life has a way of forcing change on one.

I was on my way home at sunset. I was driving along in the left lane at approximately 65 mph and an SUV was in the outside lane maybe 100 feet ahead of me. I saw a lump in the outside lane and about five seconds before the SUV ran over it, I realized it was a kitten. So my OhShit quickly turned into an OhGod.  I pulled over into the median as soon as I could without locking up and walked back to the kitten. It was just crouched in the road, exactly where it had been both before and after it got hit. It was moving its head so I knew it was still alive but I thought for sure I was rescuing it simply to take it to have it euthanized. Its mouth was open, there was blood on the mouth, and it was panting, and it’s eyes were huge. I figured it either was paralyzed or had a head injury. I scooped it up and went back to my car where I turned around and headed back to town, calling my husband to find out where the nearest animal hospital that was still open was. Surprise, the kitten wasn’t paralyzed, it tried to crawl under the seat.  I scooped him up and held him while driving.

I took him to the animal hospital my husband said was still open, and when I walked in and told them the story they immediately took it back to have the vet take a look. She brought it back and said it was stable for the moment and she would get us into a room ASAP. She asked if I had a name for it and I said “I don’t know, speed bump?”

To make a long story short, amazingly enough, he is basically uninjured except for an abrasion to his ear and a large hematoma to his cheek.  He also apparently got skunked at some point too which I didn’t even realize was coming from him until the vet tech mentioned it.

So. His name is tentatively Magni. Full of might. Cuz damn it takes some might to survive a skunk AND getting tagged by a car and only end up with some bad perfume and a fat lip.

Good advice


I’ve been struggling with accepting some of my ancestors.  I’ve been very very angry since I discovered their existence.  They were, in fact, stereotypically evil in today’s standards.  They also benefitted GREATLY from their evil.  Like as in stupid rich.  And when one branch of the family broke off from them, the branch I descend from, the money went *poof* because living a life of hard ethical work is much more difficult.

This is good advice.  I wouldn’t be here without them.
