  • Where did Obama resettle Muslim Somalis in the US? (guessing lily-white states takes the prize)

    06/11/2018 6:50:22 AM PDT · by Liz · 58 replies
    FYI--Muslim Somali refugees don’t come directly from Somalia, but were hand-picked for migration by Obama from all over the world including: Kenya, South Africa, Malaysia, Malta, and even, from Saudi Arabia. From February 1, 2005 to February 1, 2015 Obama hand-picked a total of 64,332 Somalis to the US from all over the world! Early reports say some of the Muslim Somalis were placed in these states: Minnesota: 10,804 Mississippi: 3 Missouri: 2,132 Nebraska: 322 Nevada: 331 New Hampshire: 270 New Jersey: 41 New Mexico: 161 New York: 3,721 North Carolina: 1,212 North Dakota: 690 Ohio: 5,439

    The U.S. Army on Saturday identified the American soldier killed in a firefight with al Qaeda-affiliated al Shabaab militants as Staff Sgt. Alexander Conrad.Conrad was killed on Friday, while four other soldiers were wounded in an operation against the militant group. The Army said Conrad was attached to the 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group, Airborne, in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Conrad was a Human Intelligence, noncommissioned officer, according to Reuters. President Trump offered his condolences to Conrad's family on Friday via Twitter. "My thoughts and prayers are with the families of our serviceman who was killed and his fellow...

    On Friday, one United States military serviceman was killed and several others were wounded in Somalia. President Trump quickly took to social media to share that his thoughts and prayers were with the individuals and their families. While not much information concerning the assault has been released, a U.S. spec-ops soldier was killed and four others suffered injuries following an “enemy attack.” Trump expressed his sympathies in a tweet, but rather than have reverence for the fallen soldier, some people insensitively ridiculed a typo. “My thoughts and prayers are with the families of our serviceman who was killed and his...

The fourth wounded U.S. service member was treated in country, the Pentagon said. The attack, at about 2:45 p.m. local time in Jubaland in southwest Somalia, happened during what was supposed to...

    It is certainly a contender. Fox 9 television uncovers a far-reaching scandal: last year, more than $100 million in cash left the Twin Cities airport in carry-on luggage, bound for the Middle East and Africa: This story begins at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where mysterious suitcases filled with cash have become a common carry-on. On the morning of March 15, Fox 9 chased a tip about a man who was leaving the country. Sources said he took a carry-on bag through security that was packed with $1 million in cash. Travelers can do that, as long as they fill out...

    I will be discussing the alarming escalation of aircraft incidents currently in the news. While the United States copes with many threats in the world today, what I am about to report is by far a chilling development. China has actually fired military-grade lasers targeting U.S. aircraft flying near a U.S. military base in Africa. Sarah Sanders told reporters the following: “There will be near-term and long-term consequences.” This is not the only instance in which Beijing has targeted U.S. aircraft flying over the east African country of Djibouti. According to U.S. defense officials, the lasers were fired from the...

    A senior Chinese military official toured a Chinese warship docked in Djibouti during the weekend and met with the country's president, according to China's defense ministry, underscoring Beijing's efforts to expand its military operations in Africa. Djibouti, an East African country located near vital shipping lanes and terrorism hotspots in Yemen and Somalia, also hosts military bases for the United States and France. Some security analysts have raised concerns that China, which is reported to be in talks about constructing a base in Djibouti, could be seeking to exert more influence in the strategic country, a move that could disrupt...

    The skies above the U.S. military's counterterrorism hub on the Horn of Africa have become chronically dangerous, with pilots forced to rely on local air-traffic controllers who fall asleep on the job, commit errors at astronomical rates and are hostile to Americans, documents show. Conditions at Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, the base for U.S. pilots flying sensitive missions over Yemen and Somalia, have become so dire that American warplanes and civilian airliners alike are routinely placed in jeopardy, according to federal aviation experts and documents obtained by The Washington Post under the Freedom of Information Act. Unlike other major U.S....

    A large crack that has suddenly appeared in Kenya’s Rift Valley is evidence that Africa will eventually break apart. The crack already stretches several miles and continues to grow, but it does not go all the way across the surface. If it does, it will split the continent into two. The crack has caused part of the Nairobi-Narok highway to collapse and also accelerating seismic activity in the area, leading researchers to believe that something dramatic could happen in the future. “The Great Rift splits Africa into two plates. With what is happening we have established one plate which is...

    More than 100 Kenyans were deported from the United States in 2017, a sharp increase during Donald Trump's first year as president. The rise in the number of Kenyans removed from the US — from 63 in 2016 to 103 last year — reflects an overall increase in deportations of Africans. US authorities expelled a total of 2, 134 individuals from sub-Saharan countries in the past fiscal year, which ended on September 30, 2017. Somalia, one of eight countries targeted in the latest iteration of Mr Trump's selective ban on immigration, accounted for the sharpest increase in African removals. A...

    At the 32nd Annual State of Minnesota Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration in St. Paul, Gov. Mark Dayton discussed the need for more progress in combating racism. This year's theme for the ceremony, held at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in St. Paul, was based on a statement the activist once made: "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'" State Rep. Ilhan Omar (DFL) and St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter both served as keynote speakers. During the ceremony, Dayton expressed his concerns that indecency was gaining the upper hand. "Here in...

    The Immigration and Border Authority, under the auspices of the Interior Ministry, will soon announce that illegal infiltrators from Sudan and Eritrea will have 90 days to leave Israel or face jail, Haaretz reported.

    A family of Somali refugees are living in a £2.2m mansion which is thought to be one of Britain’s most expensive council houses. Muriidi Abati, 57 who earns £7 an hour and his wife Marhan Mohamed, 44, have lived in the Georgian townhouse with their 7 children for 15 years. They are paying only £90pw to Islington Council. Critics have said it was “ridiculous,” refugees given “a home for millionaires” while many others live in squalor. Refugees can qualify as a priority for housing if local a council deems them “vulnerable,” although this is not listed as a “special reason”...

    The father of an Australian woman who was fatally shot by a Minnesota police officer this year said he was "deeply concerned" about the state's investigation into her death. "We are apprehensive that perhaps the BCA [Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension] has not fulfilled its promise," John Ruszczyk, the father of Justine Damond, said at a news conference in Sydney this morning. "We are deeply concerned about the possibility that the initial investigation was not done properly," he added. Ruszczyk's comments came just days after Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman was recorded on video last week telling activists that he...
