Mohammedans, “Refugees”, Overtake America: Utica, N.Y., A Template; New Castle, PA Is Next Up. Patriots, Get Organized – Or Else! Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

THE notion of quoting any of Europe’s leaders for “words of wisdom” (other than heroic Geert Wilders) is a non-starter at this end. However, Czechoslovakia’s President Milos Zeman certainly qualifies as an exception, as does his counterpart, former Premier Vaclav Klaus.

ABOVE all else, both recognize non-PC truths, and are unafraid to unequivocally state them. No wishy-washy, finger-in-the-air declarations. They are willing to buck the herd of braying Europhiles – never mind their addled non-Euro western peers. Not only that, they internalize their premier role as leaders, that is, the protection of their citizens and the concomitant national interest. Now, what’s so hard to understand about that?? Plenty.

SIMILARLY, they expose the fallacious notion of “global citizenry” for what it is: a whole lot of dangerous hooey and phooey, coupled with all the intended consequences and blow-back! Clear as a bell.

It is time to start preparing the Czech republic at the exit from the European union, it is the only way to “keep and save our state”, said former president Václav Klaus. It bothers him procedure initiated by the European commission for mandatory quotas.

“Fundamentally and completely resolutely protest against the decision of EU to start with the Czech republic management because of the so-called disregard for the admission of migrants on the basis of the Brussels mandated quotas. We protest against the attempt to punish us and to force us to obedience,” said Klaus with the fact that the EU only shows what he has with the Czech republic intentions.

The Czech republic according to Klaus refuses to intention compulsorily dosidlovat the territory of the Czech republic foreigners. Klaus also doesn’t want to commit to the Czech republic happened a multicultural society according to him, the unruly communities…..

It’s the only way our state, which we inherited from our ancestors and which we have an obligation as a separate entity to pass on to future generations, to maintain and to save,” he added.

Zaorálek: Compulsory quotas are a Potemkin village

The head of Czech diplomacy, Lubomir Zaoralek (CSSD) on Tuesday strongly protested against the decision of the European commission to start with the Czech republic management because of the disregard of migration quotas….continue here….

IN a nutshell, the core difference and distinction between a nationalist vis-à-vis a globalist is expressed above.

THAT being established, this is where the (Euro) rubber meets the (American) road, so to speak. Effectively, if one concurs that importing Mohammedans from any point of origin – be it under the duplicitous cover of “refugees” or one visa program or another – is a net positive for America (and the west in toto) and reflects the democratic values of the country, well, the facts attest otherwise!

INESTIMABLY, the privilege (there is NO inherent right thereof) of becoming an American citizen (conversely, being able to keep it) requires a basic respect for the nation’s underlying values. Hence, newcomers must swear to an Oath of Allegiance. As such, integrating into the nation’s fabric is part and parcel. On the other hand, Mohammedans are not allowed to accept the law(s) of Dar al-Harb, as such, their values are as close to the national ethos as the moon is made of green cheese. That far.

WHICH brings the most urgent crisis within the nation full circle: despite any political grandstanding, what exactly can millions of patriots expect – once the dust is settled – after waves of Islamic so-called “refugees” embed into all corners of the nation? Know that this is not a theoretical question, but one of practical application.

When I moved back home (Utica, N.Y.) one of the first things I noticed was that an old Methodist church was being converted into a bright shiny white new mosque. The local paper touted this as immense progress and featured a local woman who had attended the church as a child and was positively brimming with joy it was being turned into a mosque. If that is the general sentiment, then it’s odd that my county went for Trump, right? There are at least two mosques in the city now. They just built another.

Where do I start? Utica had always been “the city that loves refugees” but under Obama things accelerated. Muslim immigrants were suddenly in these local bureaucratic positions where they had power over you. This, in what is probably one of the most corrupt states in the union, where the power of the state is everything.

The social worker at my daughter’s school was a Muslim immigrant. I looked for her profile on the school website, I googled her, I could not find information on her background, resume, qualifications, or educational attainments.

When I began to homeschool my daughter the administrator to whom I had to submit paperwork was a Muslim immigrant. To homeschool in New York State you must submit detailed quarterly reports to an administrator at your local school district. I googled the administrator. He also worked at the local Board of Cooperative Educational Services, but I could not find any other information on his background, resume, qualifications, or educational attainments.

I was friends with the wife of the Orthodox priest at our church, and she told me that this administrator found some problems with her paperwork and challenged her. It turned out she was right about the issue, and he backed down. Comfy little situation, right?

Right before we moved I went to the ER. The nurse practitioner was a Muslim immigrant (Bosnia), and the doctor she worked under was a Muslim immigrant (Pakistan). I remember how during the visit I suddenly became very aware of the cross I always wear around my neck……

So let me just summarize: the social worker at the school is Muslim, the administrator who ok’s homeschooling is Muslim, the CPS worker is Muslim, the nurse practitioner at the ER is Muslim, the doctor at the ER is Muslim. These are positions of authority that wield a lot of power.

Are you starting to get the picture?

The spring before we moved Utica made national news because of a federal grant to the local community college (two million dollars) for a (Muslim immigrant) professor to teach teenage (Muslim) refugees how to build drones. The grant didn’t mention explicitly that the drones would be equipped with bombs or anything, so it was all aboveboard. This was going on like down the road from us. My husband assured me he could shoot any drone out of the sky, and I’m sure he could, but curiously enough that didn’t assuage my anxiety, but only exacerbated it. The last thing I needed was my husband getting arrested on federal charges for taking down a drone.

I looked up the Muslim immigrant professor on Linked In. It was an odd career trajectory. It looked like he had been a soccer coach a few years before. It wasn’t exactly clear to me how he had landed his present job where he was getting federal money to train Muslims to build drones, but, hey, that’s the Obama era for you.

In 2015, a 26-year-old Bosnian refugee in Utica was arrested for supporting ISIS. The local paper reported that in his spare time when he wasn’t supporting ISIS, he enjoyed mixed martial arts fighting at the local gym. Local law enforcement complained they hadn’t been informed of the investigation. You know and I know that if anything happens, local law enforcement are the first responders.

I went to a couple Trump rallies and meetings in Upstate NY before we moved. When I mentioned the arrest of this ISIS supporter to a local businessman at one of the meetings, he got a very serious look and said Utica was full of ISIS and the local police were really worried. The Trump meetings were emotional. The organizer picked a donut shop whose owner was friendly to the Trump platform so we could talk. Everyone went around the table and introduced themselves. Two of the women cried. New York State is not doing well.

Don’t believe the Start-Up NY commercials. Potemkin Village.…..

The Department of Social Services in my area is swamped because of the refugees. 25% of the city are refugees. Virtually all of the refugees are on welfare. And when they apply for welfare, they don’t do so as an independent entity, as I did. They go through their refugee resettlement agency who deals with the Department of Social Services for them. So basically Americans get the short shrift, and refugees get taken care of. And that’s America. This is why so many Democrats voted for Trump. Americans are getting squeezed out by non-Americans at multiple levels.

What else to tell you?

New York State sued our local school district for trying to separate teenage refugees from the rest of the students. I went to a CLE where I sat next to a lawyer for the school district, and she was freaking out over this lawsuit. She was like, The state is coming after us, and we don’t have any money. My county is a Democrat county, and Trump won my county. Issues like this are why. Americans can see that they are being forced to accommodate non-Americans to their own detriment and expense.

There is TB in Utica. I’m sure there is more than reported. Obama stopped screening foreigners for TB, which America has been doing since before the days of Ellis Island, and the refugees are from places where TB is endemic. Whenever I was in a hospital- when I gave birth or when I went to the ER- I would be very aware of my surroundings.

The local Walmart is full of headscarves and burkas. I cried when I went into my first Walmart in North Carolina and all I saw were Americans.

The nice lady who asked me to give a talk a couple months ago on my hometown asked me if there were any refugees who were an “asset to the community”. I replied that they do not consider themselves part of your community, so if they are going to be an asset to any community, it is not going to be yours.

I hope I’ve presented an idea of why I’m so opposed to refugee resettlement. I couldn’t write this blog post where I’m from. I’d be scared that someone would target my house. I’d be scared of the authorities. I had to wait to get to higher ground to speak more openly.

North Carolina is like Heaven. People are so much happier here. I thank God every day we got here. I consider it a “free zone”, and I want it to stay free.

ALAS, increasingly, more and more cities, small towns, as well as rural enclaves (as one traverses up and down the nation’s corridors, aside from the well-known takeover of “Dearbornistan” ) will mirror, model-like, Utica, N.Y., that is, if patriots don’t impose their will and take back their communities! It is as simple as that.

SPEAKING of which, there is an IMMEDIATE danger at bay, and this time it hails from New Castle, Pennsylvania, an area with a population of approx. 26,000. It is a microcosm of “small town” (rural) America. Yup.

SO, what’s the upshot? A highly shadowy Islamic group (fronted by HIRA Educational Services, aka HESNA, via Asif Kunwar, founder and president, and Abdul Basit, vice-president, of which NOTHING is known about their professional bonafides, nor their associations thereof) is in the process of buying a property which is almost 150 acres, one which – up until Feb. 2013 – housed the Youth Development Center, aka YDC. As of this writing, their bid met the state’s deadline, and it was handed over for final approval. Yes, it is state-owned. Even so, where’s the meat and beef?

ASIDE from the alarming red flags pointed out here, here, here and elsewhere, patriots (wherever they reside in America) must promptly inquire: why would an Islamic so-called educational consulting company (never mind the smiling pics of all-American kiddies at their rabbit-hole site), one which is, no less, shrouded in secrecy, require a facility which resembles a “fortified compound?” Ominously, the property has underground tunnels, jails, 13 buildings, etc., all of which are enclosed within barbed wire fencing!! 

CURIOUS and curiouser….

ADDING fuel to the jihadi fire, what should one conclude from HIRA’s association with – and dependence upon – the Federal Erate program, in so far that the potential for fraud (in this case, read: jihadi money laundering) presents a clear and present danger? Know that Erate has a rampant history of fraud. Moreover, trust, this whistle-blowing connector can properly assess what is what. Take it to the bank….heart….

CONCLUSIVELY, since YDC is rural-like – coupled with the above alarm bells – doesn’t it mirror the set-ups of a growing laundry list of Islamic jihadi compounds spread out all over America? If not, why not?

DESPITE all the aforementioned perils (in tandem with Trump’s initial outrage, as detailed below), how is it possible that additional dangerous Mohammedans are about to infest the nation? 

The Trump administration is reportedly preparing to implement the deal with Australia. Under the terms, the U.S. will accept hundreds of unwanted Muslims rejected for asylum by the Aussies in return for several thousand Central American refugees awaiting resettlement at a U.N. camp in Costa Rica.

The deal was negotiated last summer by Obama’s Secretary of State, John Kerry. And Trump famously tweeted that he was going to study the “dumb deal” before accepting it.

Now, Trump is reported to be moving forward with the deal.

There’s only one problem, say refugee watchdogs.

These really aren’t refugees at all. They are illegal aliens who tried to sneak into Australia, were interdicted at sea and taken to an off-shore detention center in Papua New Guinea. They migrated from some of the world’s worst jihadist strongholds – in Afghanistan, Sudan, Somalia, Iran and Iraq.

The process of resettling these refugees, mostly men, is “well underway,” immigration analyst Nayla Rush reports for the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies.

RESULTANT, the choices are as clear as they are stark. Urgently, pick a door….

“DOOR A”

  • Stop the infiltration and penetration process – by any means necessary – before countless Mohammedans resettle and takeover. 

“DOOR B”

  • Alternatively, be prepared to fight the already settled-in stampede, and with all the attendant costs of blood and treasure.

AS always, mental prep is as intrinsic as physical readiness. Thus, if a shot of fortitude is needed, crank it up:

TRENCHANTLY, don’t forget to internalize the peril this way too: is it healthier to prevent the cancer before it metastasizes, or post-spread??

MINNESOTA Bows To Islam: Non-Muslims, Go To Hell!! Islamists, Via City Council, Trample On “Infidels.” What’s The Upshot? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

FOR the absolute western record, the following, chapter and verse, must be internalized and become akin to ones second-skin: wherever Islam implants its footprints in Dar al-Harb, aka Dar al-Kufr – that which is not yet under Muslim rule – however long it takes, Islamists will seek to subdue, hence, submit, all under its boot. Is it any wonder that Sharia Law must be viewed as a cancerous scourge, never to gain a foothold in America and the west? Rhetorical.

MORE specifically, as a central part of Islamic doctrine, said dictate is not up for debate. In reality, bar none, Islam is the most imperialistic religiopolitical dogma. Mind you, is there any other so-called religious ideology which inculcates categorical hegemonic rule? None. Not on the face of this planet, that’s for sure. 

IN fact, this is precisely where Islamic hijrah comes in via its conquest ala western migration, whether as “refugees” or another method of penetration. It is Allah-mandated, and that is that. Still yet, the question becomes two-fold: what is their end point, and what is the upshot?

SIMPLY put, the resurrection of a worldwide Caliphate, a supranational Islamic arch, is their ultimate goal. Thus, said outcome also must be understood from the lens of a billion plus Muslims, many of whom dream of its re-establishment in their lifetime. Even so, the western concept of time is of little consequence. Mind you, a preponderance are steeped in a culture which invokes the same strictures and lifestyle from centuries long past. In effect, even if it takes another hundred years, that’s hardly an obstacle to their collective aspiration. Like duck off a water’s back.

CONCOMITANTLY, unlike other immigrant groups, Muslims, for the most part, do not assimilate into their host country. In other words, they view Islamic law above the laws of the land, despite any nation’s Constitution. But what muddies the water, so to speak, is the fact that many are confused when they see Muslims working alongside them, living among them, and otherwise appearing to be part of the community. But never mind, all is not as it seems.

SIMPLY, unless a Muslim is an apostate, there is zero chance that living in Dar al-Harb is what it appears to be. Intrinsically, an overriding Islamic dictate mandates conquering all infidel nations, be it by stealth/civilizational jihad, jihad by the sword, or jihad by the womb. 

SO without truly understanding that this is where it’s at, westerners will reap the whirlwind, relegated to dhimmis (and dummies) in their own countries. It is that clear. 

COMPLICATING matters, the fact that Islam is viewed as a monotheistic religion stands in the way of all reason and logic, at least for far too many addled westerners. It is as if they should be granted special dispensation for whatever heinous actions they commit, and just because they are part of a religious grouping! In a word: bull sh-t.

IN reality, even though many westerners are not religious, they tend to believe that, withstanding the wars in which Christian monotheists engaged in the past, the participants in these wars were actually violating their sacred creeds or scriptures. In other words, they want to believe that religion—at least monotheism—is basically benevolent and peace loving; and that even though history manifests bloody examples to the contrary, they incline to the idea that these wars may be attributed—stated simply—to either (1) intellectual causes, (2) moral causes, or (3) systemic causes, meaning, the international system of sovereign states.

NOW, the irony and insanity couldn’t be any greater or more dangerous. On the one hand, many of their apologists view Judaism and Christianity as little more than a fable and fairy tale, preening their own “enlightened” views as superior “thinking.” Understood.

STILL yet, they lend Islam an exemption from all civilized norms and give it “protected” status, as if Muslims are oh so special. Orwellian.

HENCE, due to the above and so much more, and coupled with an abject fear of Islam’s blood-lust, soldiers for Allah are going from strength to strength, all the while westerners react dumbstruck. Incontestably, they are bloodying and capturing parts of the west – thrust by thrust.

AND this is where Minnesota, as one state-wide exhibit out of many, enters the fray. Yes, it is not for nothing that it is called Minnesotastan!

RESULTANT, readers are familiar with the Somali time bomb within America, a seemingly unstoppable, explosive, and toxic flow into America. The fact is that their influx set the stage for Syrian jihadists and others from Islamic bent hell-holes in the early 1980’s, when the first substantial wave entered America. Its basis can be gleaned within a February 2015 commentary analysis: U.S. jihadis hiding in plain sight, as Somalis top the FBI’s most wanted list! Say it ain’t so.

ALAS, should any rational non-Muslim American be shocked to hear what happened in Bloomington, Minnesota via an anti-American, illegal part played by its prostrating City Council? Don’t be.

A radical mosque known for breeding terrorists has been granted special privileges by the city of Bloomington, Minnesota, which allows its members to take over a public park and treat it as their own, to the exclusion of other residents, according to complaints filed by a citizens group.Mohamed Farah, 22, is the older brother of Adnan Farah. He is also charged with providing material support to an overseas terrorist organization.

(Somali Mohamed Farah, 22, is the older brother of Adnan Farah. He is also charged with providing material support to an overseas terrorist organization.)

The Friends of Smith Park started a petition drive and took its case to the Bloomington City Council with a formal complaint Monday night.

At issue is the Dar al-Farooq mosque, which WND has previously reported has a record of turning Somali refugees into jihadists for ISIS and other terror groups.

At least half a dozen known Somali terrorists have attended Dar al-Farooq in recent years including Adnan Farah, 20, and his brother Mohamed, 22, who pleaded guilty in April to providing material support to ISIS. The mosque is headed by Waleed Idris al-Meneesey, who preaches hatred of Jews straight from the Quran and the hadiths.

“According to your police officers, you’ve privileged Dal al-Farooq worshipers above all other religions. You’ve made Smith Park a Dar al-Farooq-only zone after the park is already closed, excluding citizens of all other faiths and those of no faith,” said Frost, who represents Friends of Smith Park.Now it has come to light that city officials in Bloomington have given al-Meneesy and his Sharia-compliant followers special privileges that violate its conditional-use permit, or CUP, and that are not offered to any other religious group, said attorney and retired Lt. Col. Larry Frost. By doing so, Frost said the city has exposed itself to potential lawsuits from churches and synagogues in the area that have not been afforded the same rights.

The council members sat mum during Frost’s comments.

Long list of abuses

The list of abuses and alleged violations by Dar al Farooq, which was allowed to build in a residential area, is long. They range from dumping asbestos in the trash to having three to five times the occupancy allowed by its conditional-use permit, making excess noise, shining car lights and producing overflow parking at all hours of the night during the month of Ramadan – and to a lesser extent every weekend. The mosque members take over the adjacent public park and force out residents of nearby neighborhoods, often staying in the park well after the posted closing time of 11 p.m.

Neighbors have been told by mosque workers to get out of Smith Park “because the park belongs to [the Muslims],” said one local woman.

Another local resident, Matilda Zumba, who lives in a neighborhood near the mosque, approached the city council Monday night with an interpreter. She said she has two small children who are always playing outside.

“I’m very afraid because there is a lot of traffic and a lot of speeding and the people of Dar al-Farooq don’t respect our speed limits and the safety of our children,” Zumba told the council. “I’m also now afraid to take our children to the park because there are many people there who do not respect the rights of our own children to play there.

“A lot of times the other children don’t want to work together to share with our children. Sometimes their parents are there and they may shout at them but they don’t do anything, they just continue to let their children interfere. The park is very important to the Spanish community especially and we met there a lot, but now we don’t because we don’t feel safe.”

Mosque attendees have flooded the neighborhood with offsite parking, blocked driveways and walked through neighbors’ yards without permission. The city has told neighbors if they park in joint-use parking, the neighbors have to “hurry to the sidewalk” and get out of the parking lot so it would be available for the mosque. 

VIDEO: SUSPECT IN CALIFORNIA MOSQUE FIRE HELD ON BAIL

Last week one supporter of the neighborhood group witnessed mosque abusers using joint-parking areas to practice driving at 1:30 a.m. – by using city garbage cans as obstacles. When the witness came to film the event, three young mosque members confronted him, one demanding to know what he was doing and telling him he could not film the offending car or its license. Later, a police officer told the witness that “only mosque members can use the parking lots after normal park hours” – in other words, the public space is reserved for use by one particular religion after it’s closed to the public.

The city took more than three years and 67 drafts to complete the conditional-use permit with the mosque. Built into that contract is a requirement that the city use a laborious five-phase, six-month enforcement process to correct any Dar al-Farooq violations.

“Clearly that’s a non-enforcement clause,” Frost said. “The city has to give this amazing provision to every new church applicant, and I would argue, every current CUP holder can demand the same. Why? Because you are privileging Dar al-Farooq above other religions.

“One of your own council members said ‘I feel like we’re punishing applicants that came after Dar al Farook,’ because you required them to do things that Dar al-Farooq is not required to do.”

The city council granted a conditional-use permit to Dar al Farooq enabling the mosque to operate in a residential neighborhood, then failed to enforce either the CUP or the joint-use agreement allowing the mosque to use Smith Park.

As a result, the neighbors of Smith Park have been reduced to second-class status, unable to use and enjoy a public park adjacent to their neighborhood.

Mosque actions violating the CUP and JUA were not stopped because the city attorney insisted that the federal Religious Land-use and Incarcerated Persons Act, commonly called RLUIPA, did not allow the city to enforce the CUP/JUA, effectively making the neighborhood around Dar al Farooq a zoning-free area. The city attorney also told council members that enforcement of the CUP could result in lawsuits against council members in their private capacities. Both legal ideas are flatly false, said Frost.

“Your own city attorney, former attorney, told you that you had to do that, but you made a grave legal and moral error when you signed a CUP and then didn’t enforce it, because that’s not what RLUPA says,” Frost told the council on Monday night.

RLUIPA is a federal statute that requires local governments to issue permits for houses of worship equally when it comes to construction projects.

“But once you have the CUP you’re no longer in the permitting phase – it is not a legal permitting issue,” Frost said. “Despite what your previous city attorney said, you can enforce the CUP and you must.”

Friends of Smith Park are asking only that all city council resolutions concerning Dar al Farooq be enforced, including retroactive enforcement where legal and appropriate – exactly as would be the case for all other religious institutions with a conditional-use permit.

A mosque is not just a house of worship

Most Americans believe a mosque or Islamic Center is simply a “Muslim church,” when in fact it operates much differently, said Debra Anderson, coordinator of the Minneapolis chapter of ACT For America.

“In Islam, the prophet Mohammad is viewed as the perfect example of a man,” she said. “Anything he did is considered the example for all Muslims to follow for all time.”

Mohammad used the first mosques as political and military bases as well as houses of worship.There are now as many as 3,100 mosques in America and nearly 80 percent of them have been opened since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

“It has been from the mosque that devout Mohammadans (Muslims) have waged their war of global conquest, slaughtering non-Muslims who refuse to surrender to Islam and producing a trail of blood and tears across world history,” Anderson said.

Last month police in Germany raided a property near a mosque and found a large cache of military-grade weapons being stored by Islamists.

Turkey’s Islamist president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, once said: “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets, and the Muslim faithful our soldiers…”

Bloomington’s Dar al-Farooq is just one out of 83 mosques in Hennepin county. There are 163 mosques, Islamic centers, masjids and prayer spaces in Minnesota at last count, Anderson said.

“How many are in your county? Who is the Imam? What are they teaching? Are they teaching that ‘Allah is our objective; the Prophet is our leader; the Quran is our law; Jihad is our way; dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope?” Anderson asks, referring to the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood.

In an email alert Tuesday, Anderson said three civilian Minnesota women, two of which are grandmothers, have been “doing the work that our FBI and law enforcement agencies used to do before all their training manuals were purged of anything deemed offensive by the Muslim Brotherhood … before our military, intelligence, and law enforcement institutions became ‘sensitive’ to blasphemy laws as dictated by Islamic Sharia law. Yes, the country is in great trouble. You are needed.”

“Please, stand with these American patriots in Bloomington in their effort to protect and preserve the safety and livability of their neighborhood from this radical mosque that is clearly demonstrating their utter disregard for American law, their neighbors … and more importantly our national security.”

MOST significantly, know that the above is merely a foretaste of what is coming down the pike, if left unchecked. In other words, once they gain the upper hand, well….

INCONTROVERTIBLY, can anyone honestly state why a bulls eye shouldn’t be placed on Waleed Idrus al-Maneesey, a radical imam who heads up the Al-Farooq mosque in Bloomington, Minnesota, attended by at least six known terrorists and terrorist supporters. If not, why? And what about all the rest??
