Don Barnett of CIS & "Refugee Settlement, a system badly in need of review"- Audio

(The audio was made on an HTC cell-phone  due to the battery failure of my audio recorder.)

January 10, 2012 NY Speakers Series " Losing Control of Refugee Resettlement"  USARP (United States Refugee Admissions Program)

Don Barnett was introduced by Mark Krikorian, Executive Director of the Center For Immigration Studies. 

Don Barnett is currently a fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies and expert on refugee resettlement in the United States.

Barnett is  a former employee of the United States Information Agency within the U.S. State Department, and spent an extensive part of his career working in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc, which produced most of the refugees brought to the United States during the Cold War Era.

In approximately 80 minutes, Barnett gave us a sobering presentation of the problem faced by small towns and communities throughout America as we lose control of the costly out-of-control refugee resettlement system. He cautioned that one must by necessity avoid too much truth (too many details) particularly when dealing with the political elites aka Congress. They just can't handle all those nasty facts, keeping in mind this body politic passed Obama-Care without bothering to even read it. So this badly needed reform goes unheeded.

He continues with how the settlement program actually fails the refugees though neglect, once they are in the U.S. and resettled. Their sponsors lose track of them as there is no legal requirement to do any follow-up once they are here.  So if they connected to terrorism in anyway, who would know? If they choose to avoid assimilation in to American culture, why are they here?

And who is a refugee? Who makes the decision as to what country is on  the list of resettlement? 95% are referred by the U.N. (UNHCR) The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees is setting U.S. immigration policy for criminals? Terrorists? Who knows, really...

Sadly, the system is knee-deep in fraud as limited resources are diverted seemly without review.  It is huge. almost impossible to absorb

Religious organizations and NGOs ( non-governmental organizations) make money off the very profitable business of resettlement ; exploitation for profit a program on a perpetual growth trajectory..

To read more on this speaker, please go to an article by G. Perry at

(an excerpt follows)

These voluntary agencies, or VOLAGs for short, get generous stipends from the federal government, i.e. American taxpayers, for finding purported refugees, as well as compensation for the imputed costs of help rendered to these people, despite the fact that once they arrive in the United States these refugees are abandoned by their sponsors and shunted off to local social service agencies. In fact, “hooking up” these newcomers with already overburdened taxpayer-funded welfare programs is the primary goal of many of these agencies. While only comprising one percent of their clientele, they constitute over fifty percent of their funding, which explains why these groups fought so vigorously against any curtailment in the flow of refugees into the United States following the September 11th massacres, however brief. Catholic Charities constitutes the top leech of these parasitical organizations, generating over half of its annual revenue by bilking American taxpayers, millions upon millions of it earmarked specifically to unravel the social fabric of local communities through the resettlement of  unassimilable refugees from the third world.

Yet the good people of the Volunteer State have fought back, and just this past June-with the help of the Tennessee Eagle Forum and Act for America-compelled their state legislature to enact the Tennessee Refugee Absorptive Capacity Act. Although watered down after ferocious lobbying from the usual suspects-led by Catholic Charities-it represents a distinctive achievement in the fight to reject refugee resettlement, which impacts every state and locality in the United States. This is demonstrative proof that citizen activism, if focused, can achieve results, and serves as an incentive for anyone who might believe that this is an insoluble problem. The challenge ahead might be difficult, but it is not impossible.

Jan 21-Times Sq: Global Day in support of Egyptian Revolution ( vid and pics)

January 21, 2011 at approximately 12:30 PM. Times Square

DSCN1066 copy

Decided to check out the Egyptian Revolution Rally taking place just after the first light snow of the winter season.

Their stage was late, so sans amplification the rally leaders were chanting and attempting to kept the crowd busy until their errant truck/stage arrived.

DSCN1083 copy2

DSCN1088 copy

It was a small crowd comprised of familiar Leftists, "Palestinians" and Islamist protestors.

DSCN1163 copy

DSCN1118 copy

Usually, I'm called a Zionist, a Racist, a Nazi and a hate-monger but today, I was lectured, told outright HOW I was to write about the rally or else LEAVE because ( you see) " I'm an Islamophobe who WORKS for Pam Geller."

Policing me was Marxist/Fakestinian agitator, Andy Pollack. Andrew Pollack of   Al-Awda NY who loves to press his hulking mass into my space while proudly declaring that I had to stop filming.

DSCN1113 copy

He kept his little soldiers busy infringing on my freedom of speech and assembly by attempting to block my camera with flags and bodies. Nice, huh? The games Lefties play....

DSCN1106 copy

Two young women in the rally were 'alerted' by Pollack to not speak with me because I "WORK for Pam Geller". One of those girls was Micha (Michelle) Balon of the STAGED #OWS marriage (arranged to please the easily duped MSM).

But, Micha doesn't seem to be 'married' anymore. Her face book page says she interested in MEN and makes no mention of a 'husband'

DSCN1108 copy

My other critic was Nada Elmansy (in light blue hijab) She said I can't be trusted to write appropriately about Muslims!" However, I appreciate that she took a moment on camera to actually express why she was there.

DSCN1110 copy

Some more pictures of the signs...

 DSCN1135 copy2

Socialist yearning for bread, dignity and ...."Social Justice"!

DSCN1141 copy

Socialist...Revolution.... Freedom...Justice For All!

DSCN1149 copy

Anti-Israel (lots of Kuffeyas ) and Anti-America ....

DSCN1170 copy2

 DSCN1133 copy

It wasn't just a rally about those martyred in Tahrir Square...

 DSCN1100 copy


Facts are the Muslim Brotherhood and the Sharia compliant government is antithetical to a free society, to a democracy.

"The Islamist parties have won 72 percent of the seats in the lower house...the revolutionaries of Tahrir Square were disgraced at the polls and exposed as an insignificant social and political force...The Muslim Brotherhood (and its fellow jihadists in the Salafist al-Nour party) will control Egypt's internal affairs."

Yet there were no signs criticizing the Muslim Brotherhood.

 DSCN1147 copy

If there were Christians at this rally (as they claimed) WHERE were the signs supporting the Copts.

This election is ".. bad news for women and for non-Muslims. Egypt's Coptic Christians have been under continuous attack by Muslim Brotherhood and Salafist supporters since Mubarak was deposed...The military massacred them when they dared to protest their persecution."

I heard nothing protesting  the attacks and murders of the Copts, martyred in Egypt because they are CHRISTIANS. Will the Muslim Brotherhood and the Sharia compliant government be any better? (crickets chirping)

DSCN1151 copy

Is Egypt a country on the verge of a real Democracy? Were those killed in Tahrir Square fighting to live under Sharia?

" ...the Islamic fundamentalists now in charge of Egypt ( who) don't need a constitution to implement their tyranny. All they require is what they already have - a public awareness of their political power and their partnership with the military."

DSCN1089 copy

Leaving no doubt this was also a protest in opposition of Israel...

"...the new regime ( in Egypt) which allows Sinai to be used as a launching ground for attacks against Israel and as a highway for weapons and terror personnel to flow freely into Gaza; clear signs that the peace with Israel is already dead - treaty or no treaty.
"..the depth and breadth of America's losses, consider that on January 25, 2011, most Arab states were US allies to a greater or lesser degree. Mubarak was a strategic ally...In Egypt, it was clear that the Muslim Brotherhood would emerge as the strongest political force in the country."

Keeping the revolution alive in Syria, in Libya, in Tunisia, in Yemen (in Egypt)... and in 'Fakestine'... FREE FREE etc etc etc etc .... Reminding us that America is:

  "...looked upon with increasing contempt and disgust throughout the Arab world."

After all, Ramsey Clark and his International Action Center was promoting, organizing , supporting this rally. His organization is not just critical of America it is ANTI- America.

DSCN1175 copy

No Old Glory flying along side the flag of Egypt. Just signs, signs and more signs blaming America and praising Socialism.

 DSCN1192 copy

 Their "Hope and Change" for a democracy is just an excuse to build another Saudi Arabia; another Iran compliments of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Global Day to support the Egyptian revolution on SaturdayJan 21st, 2012

 Egyptian Solidarity Groups Rally to Support Egyptian Revolution's Demands on the Anniversary of the Egyptian Revolution 

Global Event: The Struggle Continues

New York City, NY

During the 18 days from Jan 25th to Feb 11th, 2011, the whole world witnessed millions of Egyptian protesters marching in the streets of Egypt and protesting in Tahrir Square, demanding their basic human rights: dignity, freedom, and social justice. After decades of patience and suffering, Egyptians finally spoke out loudly and peacefully demanding the fall of a police-based authoritarian regime, the end of Mubarak’s dictatorship, and the establishment of a civilian, democratic state.

This was as much an anti-America rally as it was a pro-Egypt (Muslim Brotherhood Rally)

 DSCN1150 copy

The protestors in Times Square may protest the SCAF but they say nothing against the Muslim Brotherhood....

"...the military junta...has made its peace with the Muslim Brotherhood. The generals and the jihadists are negotiating a power-sharing agreement."

DSCN1073 copy 

 And Anonymous...of course... was there with this pithy thought:

"Beneath this mask is an idea and ideas are bullet-proof"

Is islamic Sharia Law Coming To America & Should We Care? (video)

September 26, 2011.

This panel was presented by The NY City Lawyers Chapter and the International and National Security Law Practice Group and The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies in NYC .

Videos are complete audio with pictures (in six parts) total approximately 80 minutes.

PART ONE - opening statements by Marc Schuman, secretary of the NY Chapter of The Federalist Society and the Honorable Richard J. Sullivan, District Judge, U.S. District Court, Southern District of NY, who was moderator for the evening.

Schuman then introduces the panel.  

Prof. David Forte, (Constitutional and Sharia Law). Forte teaches Islamic Law and Originalism in the class-room and Daniel Mach (Director of the American Civil Liberties Union Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief). He turns the mic over to the moderator, Richard J. Sullivan.


PART TWO - opening presentation of  guest speaker, David Forte, Professor of Law, Cleveland-Marshall School of Law. In the classroom he teaches Constitutional Law and Originalism . He also teaches Islamic Law.

Some excerpts from audio in Part 2:

(Forte) mentions Islamic Law and Constitutional Originalism.  Mentions Egypt, Mubarak and Tahrir Square. War on West is from within. Qaradawi and fatwas against Jews. Kill the Jews. Divine punishment (sharia).

(In 2004, 2,500 Muslim academics from Saudi Arabia, Iraq and from the Palestinian territories condemned Qaradawi, and accused him of giving "Islam a bad name.") 

Forte says Qaradawi's Sharia not Classical Sharia. His Sharia not the REAL Sharia. Discrimination against women was NOT permitted in Classical Sharia . The tyranny of Qaradawi (his ideology).


Qaradawi warns Muslims to not be immigrants, be COLONIZERS. Examples: European NO-GO Zones and the Sharia quasi-legal systems in England, France, Rome; replicated though-out Old Europe.

(In England, five formal Sharia Courts and 80 informal) In Belgium, a parallel Legal Court; a SHARIA Court (in Brussels).

In early Islam, they were Rationalists til 55 years later, then Legalists. Sharia formed by Jurists, recognized by Imperialists (Caliphs). 

 Saladin changed substance of Sharia (there was no torture) Could not torture innocents (now you  can)  He was an Arabized Kurdish Muslim, who became the first Sultan of Egypt and Syria .

A thousand years of Islamist history enforced only by Caliph. He could enforce or throw anything aside in the entire Islamic Empire. Caliph must support Sharia (STATE LAW) of the Islamic State (Empire).
8th-9th c Sharia: Legalists vs Rationalists (like Greeks)...Sharia was formed by Jurists... an Equity Court.   Islam identified with The Law.

Iran and Saudi Arabia are "Perfectly Islamic". What changed. Torture was not originally part of Islam They changed Sharia from a system of beliefs for righteous living before god into an ideology.  A religion into a POLITICAL ideology.

Warned to practice perfect Islam or else you are an apostate. This form of Islam, this Sharia is an abomination

Forte says, Radical Islam "changing Believer into Ideologue-Apparatchik of a totalitarian regime." He concludes, "THAT is what we should oppose as a threat (THAT type of Islam)


PART THREE - opening presentation of guest speaker, Daniel Mach, Director of the American Civil Liberties Union Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief.

Excerpts from Part 3:

Mach's specialty is First Amendment Law, Church and State. He's in-the-trenches and litigates in areas of Church and State. 

Mach begins with, " NO,  Sharia Law is not 'Coming-to-America'"
Admits that,"Dangerous Religious extremists do exist." 

In Sharia, no religious tenets were to be imposed or decided by courts.

There's NO Take Over by Sharia Law. It's Just Not Happening..

 In Oklahoma, they've banned Sharia Law,  something that hasn't happened ONCE. Lists of (Sharia) examples don't withstand scrutiny. 

Our courts don't put the right-to-pray up-for-a-vote


PART  FOUR - Forte and Mach respond to Moderator, Richard Sullivan's  questions

 Excerpts from Part 4:

David Forte refers to Wahhabis (is interrupted by audience member) re 80% mosques and Imams under Saudi influence

Judge in NJ upheld a Sharia judgement. NJ judge didn't 'get' difference. Foreign Law (aka Sharia Law) not okay if it violates U.S. Constitution or State Law 

Dan Mach stresses Christians have rights to exercise faith so he questions passing laws to isolate Sharia as a specific threat. Asylum cases have been denied to people who fear torture... says a problem in a handful of cases

Forte - Honor killings are tribal custom, NOT Sharia

In parts 5 and 6 - questions from the audience with responses from the speakers. These are just a few excerpts...

PART FIVE ( Questions from audience) 

Excerpts from Part 5:

QUESTION: re Sharia Finance, "Is it a cover ?"

Forte  Re Sharia Finance. Mutual Funds. Check where funds are going. What's the interest. Too harsh to say no Sharia Finance 

WHY "no-interest" loans?. Financing (Fiqh) deals with the observance of rituals, morals and social legislation in Islam. (no-interest loans) 

Usury (Middle Ages) was RENTING money (like a horse) Loans rented during Ottomans (up to 10 %) Always had interest. This prohibition is a 20th-21st century creation . Fundamentalism is a perversion 

FORTE claims Classical Sharia is different from what we are criticizing. Women. Minorities. Islamic State Law. It must be in CONTEXT. Classical Sharia, women had protections/Radical Islam they do not. Ottoman enforced punishment for theft, apostasy but NO capital punishment in classical Sharia. There were protections. RADICALS do torture (not in Classical Sharia)

Made a JOKE about the need for the four upright males (false accusation) ; theft (two upright males) Not easy to find as there is also a punishment for false testimony. TRIBAL CUSTOM (culture) has caused the harsh punishments not Islam.

MACH responds, Thought and expression not criminalized in U.S. Defends t-shirts that criticize Islam/burn Koran (he defends these) BUT if you violate... commit a criminal act...then NO defense...

FORTE . Okay with Warrior Prophets. He admires Mohammed. Treatment of women, unbelievers, etc. He continues that Mohammed emancipated women (greater rights in marriage) Mentions the RESPECT Mohammed had for wives. Yes, he married a 6 year old. Not uncommon. It was okay in that culture.

Protected monks, freedom of religious beliefs. Says Mohammed was responsible for legal influence of Arabic Society (reforms)

What distorted Mohammed's trajectory?  "Law. Tribes. Empire" (The Ottoman Empire) He is not a believer but admires Mohammed

Q - What has Mohammed done that was extraordinary? Why so violent? Justifying  murder/extermination?

Forte: Violence in Bible much worse. In comparison, the Koran is WHIMPY. Islam should have been the FIRST to free slavery, instead it was the LAST. Should have been the first to observe Laws of War.

Forte re violence in O.T. Difference is HOW Jews interpret. What came after. How Muslims handle it (the text) How each dealt with what was written. Re Koran. Contextualize reference to treatment of unbelievers. It's all in the interpretation. It was the Koresh Tribe Mohammed was referring to.


PART SIX :  Final statements from Forte and Mach

Excerpts from Part 6:

Question - People are afraid to speak up because of the fear from punishment. "See something say something" could place them in jeopardy with mosque (sharia). "Don't they feel that make the mosques a security risk?"

Forte: we should investigate where money comes from, the newspapers should investigate. The Saudi influence.

Mach: Government should not tell where or how to worship. Not worried about prisons. There all all types of prison-checks to control influence.

Q. What about last 10 years.  What's going on in Europe... No Go Zones...

Mach: I'll defend your right if denied access to street.  (the audience member mentions Dearborn) The moderator and  panel do not respond.... 

Q- How can we think this is a Great Religion based on history?

Forte - Look at what Moderate Muslims are saying about Islam. There is a seed in all religions of recognizing each other as equals.

Mach : Government should not be in business of telling anyone where they can build a house of worship. You own the property, you can build.

Moderator: How to promote the Classical version of Sharia and not the Radical?

Forte: STOP multi-cultural baloney in schools that support Radical Version of Islam (which should be minimized) 1910-1930 example: Italian immigrant educators,in  assimilation was encouraged.
Multi-culturalism is GOVERNMENT imposed. The worst thing we can do as far as assimilation.

Mach (ACLU) questions Forte's  criticism of  multi-culturalism. Sees great benefits Public Schools teaching about other cultures.


By coincidence, found this article in American Thinker by Jamie Glazov

"Islamism at UCLA Law School"

 " ...the belief system and values under girding Sharia Islam are the antithesis of American/Western beliefs and fundamental values, and therefore Dr. Fadl's scholarship relentlessly sanitizing sharia was "deceptive and dishonest.".... it is one thing for a legal scholar to cause controversy and debate by taking an unpopular position; it is quite another when the scholar obfuscates rather than clarifies a subject of study by engaging in subpar scholarship and outright deception (known by the sharia as taqqiyah..."

Nov 6 was National Remembrance Day for Americans Killed by Illegal Aliens

On November 6, 2011, at 26 Federal Plaza in NYC, American activists met to acknowledge a National Day of Remembrance in honor of those murdered by illegal aliens.

Gerard Perry of American Rattlesnake and fellow members of NY-Ice met to honor the American victims of illegal alien crime. (VIDEO)

  Joanna Marzullo , President
NY ICE (New Yorkers for Immigration Control and Enforcement) said:

People in our Movement have worked hard to have a day designated where we remember those who have been victims of illegal aliens. November 6th is that day.

I know what our predictable opposition will say about this Day. They will say "most illegals aren't violent criminals. Can't 'the rest' stay?" To which my answer is: No. We, the People of the U.S., are ALL victims of illegal aliens. Illegal aliens who aren't committing *additional* violations are still illegally here, and leeching and detrimental in countless ways, including: our schools are overcrowded, our hospitals are closing, our jobs are undercut and lost, and much more.

                                   Members of NY- ICE

More than 50, 000 Americans have been killed by illegal aliens since 9/11.

More than 6,000 U.S. troops have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan since that same date. But nearly ten times that number have been killed right here at home as a consequence of the Federal government’s failure to secure our borders and protect its citizens, in direct violation of the Constitution’s Article IV Section 4:

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

More than 50,000 dead as a direct result of this violation. Yet the media ignores the victims. And politicians don’t recognize the loss of tens of thousands of families.

But today We The People remember.

Today is National Remembrance Day for Americans Killed By Illegal Aliens.

 A coalition of groups fighting against illegal immigration, including Stand With Arizona, the FIRE Coalition,and Congressmen Steve King (R-IA) and Walter Jones (R-NC) joined together to recognize this day in honor of the victims.

The Illegal Alien Crime Reporting Act of 2011

Remembering the American Victims of Illegal Alien Criminals

F.I.R.E. Coalition, in partnership with the Tea Party Immigration Coalition and the Foreign National Crime Information Center, will hold a press conference in Washington, D.C. Thursday November 3rd to designate November 6th as The National Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Illegal Aliens and to support Congressman Walter Jones’ (NC-3) H.R. 3168, The Illegal Alien Crime Reporting Act of 2011. And we thank Congressman Steve King (IA-5) for introducing a Resolution naming November 6th as The National Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Illegal Aliens.

“November 6th is the 25th anniversary of the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act

Amnesty,” said John Stahl, Chairman of the Tea Party Immigration Coalition. “One legacy of the IRCA amnesty is millions of illegal aliens who continue to invade our country expecting another amnesty and some of them are violent criminals. It is appropriate that November 6th be the day that we observe a moment of silence, remembering the tens of thousands of unnecessary victims of illegal alien crimes. They are ‘unnecessary victims,’ because if the federal government did its job, secured our borders and enforced our immigration laws, we wouldn’t have illegal alien criminals victimizing innocent American citizens and legal immigrants.”

Tea Party Immigration Coalition supports H.R. 3168, The Illegal Alien Crime Reporting Act of 2011. “We don’t know the exact number of victims of illegal alien criminals,” Stahl observed. “The GAO report on Criminal Alien Statistics only hints at the problem. Honest reporting of illegal alien crime is essential for us to know the breadth and scope of the problem so we can convince our elected officials to enforce the law and protect our country and citizens. Mr. Jones’ legislation can provide us a more accurate accounting of how many Americans are being hurt by illegal alien criminals.”

The Foreign National Crime Information Center’s Victim’s of Illegal Alien Crime Memorial ( has a data base of victims of illegal alien criminals that can be viewed and added to. “Tea Party Immigration Coalition is pleased to work in partnership with F.I.R.E. Coalition, The Foreign Crime Information Center and all Congressman and patriots who desire to make America safer by forcing our government to secure our borders and enforce our laws. We remember these victims in the hope of preventing future American victims of illegal alien criminals.”
