Baltimore and Nashville Mayors – two peas in a leftist pod

Radical leftist mayors of both declining and growing cities have claimed that legal and illegal immigrants can fix both the population gaps and increase economic growth. Just how Angela Merkel fixed Germany?

Refugee resettlement in Baltimore and Nashville

In 2012, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said that to revive her city, she needed 10,000 families within a decade to settle there. She saw a movie created by the social engineering organization Next City that promoted immigrants in Baltimore as “key actors in societal change.” The movie was shown at an event sponsored by Islamic Relief USA, an affiliate of Islamic Relief Worldwide that “has been linked to terrorism finance, [and] is now playing a role in helping to settle refugees from terror torn Syria.”

The mayor was convinced that the refugee resettlement program could help her reach the goal.

And sure enough, so far in 2016, over 1,025 refugees were brought to Maryland, including 154 Syrians most of whom are in Baltimore.

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry partners with federal contractor Catholic Charities to ensure that refugees continue to flow into her city. She says Nashville should remain open and welcoming to refugees, some of whom she says have become “incredible community leaders.” No doubt she means people like the Kurdish refugee activist who rejects the U.S. Constitution and says don’t call her an American.

And another Kurdish refugee brought the Muslim Brotherhood’s anti-Semitic CAIR director to train high school students in community activism.

Shortly after the November 2015 jihad attack in Paris, Governor Haslam called for a halt to resettling Syrian refugees in Tennessee based on reports about would-be terrorists mixing in with refugee flows. Mayor Barry’s response was, “‘[R]eality, not fear’ should dictate the reaction to the terrorist attacks in Paris, France.”

Despite today’s “reality” in France, Belgium, and Germany of multiple deadly jihad attacks, so far in 2016 over 1,170 refugees have been resettled in Tennessee, including 112 Syrians and 132 Somalis.

Illegal immigration in Baltimore and Nashville

In 2012, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake signed an executive order formalizing Baltimore as a sanctuary city as part of her plan to revive the city’s decline. The mayor told Latinos, in particular, that she is counting on them to help Baltimore gain 10,000 families within a decade.”

Solidifying the city as a destination for illegal immigrants, Baltimore’s City Council will be voting shortly to establish a municipal ID program. This program is like New York’s $13.5 million dollar program which gives illegal alien lawbreakers a “document” so they can take advantage of city services.

During her campaign Megan Barry promised Nashville’s illegals a municipal ID program. Leaders from TIRRC (TN Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition) who ended up serving on Barry’s transition team, said municipal IDs for illegal immigrants is a “forward thinking” progressive policy that would help illegal immigrants pass for legal residents.

In December 2016, Nashville groups will be hosting the “National Immigrant Integration Conference.” The conference was held in NYC last year and included break-out sessions like illegal aliens voting in municipal elections and economic justice. This year, organizers are adding a new propaganda track on refugee resettlement and a plenary session devoted to strategies designed to change the South’s demographics. That is, turn it’s political color blue.

Baltimore and Nashville mayors also share…

Black Lives Matter protestors and their allied progressive and Islamist groups

    • in Baltimore Rawlings-Blake told police to stand down while rioters looted stores and destroyed property following the death of Freddie Gray

    • in Nashville, the mayor supports screening new police recruits for bias and says she is ready to sit down and dialogue with BLM

Very high rates of “disconnected youth” – Measure of America’s 2015 report defines “disconnected youth” as 16 – 24 year olds who are neither working nor in school. Among the most populous U.S. Metro areas:

    • Baltimore is estimated to have 39,864 in this category; 18.4% are black and 7.8% are white

    • Nashville is estimated to have 29,283 in this category; 17.6% are black and 10.4% are white

And of course, both mayors are heavily invested in the Democratic party; Rawlings-Blake has been the secretary of the DNC since 2013 and just gaveled in the convention after Wasserman-Schultz was booed off the stage. Predictably, Megan Barry is a Hillary delegate.

These mayors see political progressives, refugee Islamic jihadists and illegal immigrants as tools to create urban leftist strongholds. Will Nashville follow Baltimore’s path? In Nashville, these groups are entrenched in the mayor’s inner circle which makes this undesirable outcome a real possibility.

Metro Nashville: Why is an anti-American political organization operating a voting site…

especially one that is politically hostile to the idea that illegal immigrants are lawbreakers who should not be rewarded with amnesty?

So why then is the Nashville headquarters for the National Council of La Raza allowed to operate a voting site?

la raza voting

Conexion Americas’ building Casa Asafran is a Metro Nashville voting site. Conexion Americas is an official affiliate of the National Council of La Raza (NCLR). Renata Soto, the founder and director of Conexion Americas is the president of the board of the NCLR.

The Tennessee Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC) is based in the Conexion Americas building. TIRRC, a Soros funded far left radical organization is also an official affiliate of the NCLR.

The Muslim American Center for Outreach (ACO) and the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) are based in the Conexion Americas building. A founding member and former chairman of AMAC is president of the board of TIRRC.

TIRRC, ACO and AMAC are organizing collaborators with Black Lives Matter (BLM) operating in Nashville.

Paul Galloway, the director of ACO and AMAC is a former director of CAIR Houston. CAIR is a Muslim Brotherhood unindicted co-conspirator in the successful Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing prosecution. CAIR raised money for HAMAS, a U.S. designated terrorist organization.

CAIR’s executive director has publicly declared support for HAMAS and for Black Lives Matter.

All these political organizations, hostile to our Constitution, are housed in the same facility where people go to vote. It makes you wonder what kind of “help” voters receive there.

The National Council of La Raza (NCLR)

La Raza means “The Race.” Leftist propagandists and “scholars” have disputed the interpretation, but regardless, looking at La Raza’s agenda makes it clear they are Hispanic-centric, invested in identity politics and willingly resort to the violence used by leftist radicals.

The NCLR lobbies for Hispanic racial preferences, bilingual education, mass immigration and amnesty for illegal aliens.

They oppose:

  • securing the southern border

  • cooperation on immigration law enforcement by local, state and federal authorities

They support:

  • driver licenses for illegal immigrants

  • in-state tuition for illegal immigrant students.

The NCLR position statements characterize the U.S. as a nation with widespread white racism and discrimination and the organization has opposed most of the post 9/11 U.S. counterterrorism efforts.

Part of La Razas “Excelencia in Education” initiative was a 2001 goal of creating 50 publicly funded charter schools that teach an ethnically separatist curriculum. Former La Raza president Raul Yzaguirre, Hillary Clintons Hispanic outreach advisor, said “US English is to Hispanics as the Ku Klux Klan is to blacks.”

Voting at the Nashville headquarters for La Raza

According to the Tennessee ACLU, a non-English speaking voter has “the right to bring anyone you choose with you to the polls to help translate.. you also have the right to have a poll worker or anyone you choose assist you in the voting booth, except for your employer, an agent of your employer, or an officer or agent of your labor union.”

La Raza is offering voters a free cup of “cafe rumba roast.” Is any voting advice going along with that free cup of coffee?

Tennessee “UNWELCOMING” Because It Won’t Hand Over Its Jobs….

to the thousands of migrants and refugees that federal refugee contractor World Relief and the Nashville Chamber of Commerce say are entitled to realize their American Dream.

The problem they say (here and here), is that the refugees and economic migrants (who Obama has allowed to pass for refugees), who have degrees that could qualify for white collar jobs, aren’t “connected” and therefore, can’t find the jobs that are being passed around in the good ole’ boys networks.

Well guess what? The average college educated Tennessean can’t get those jobs either.

ready for work

Insiders like Dr. Subhi Ali and Sen. Lamar Alexander secured jobs for their children Samar Ali and Will Alexander with Tennessee’s Department of Economic and Community Development (ECD). These insiders know that ECD is really Haslam’s publicly funded, political payback employment firm!

Samar Ali’s father called up the ECD Commissioner and asked that “he look at Samar’s resume” and lo and behold, she became an Assistant Commissioner at ECD! At the same time ECD hired Lamar Alexanders campaign director Alice Rolli. To avoid any appearance of nepotism though, Leslee Alexander had to wait until her brother Will left ECD before she could get the job as ECD’s International Director.

If the Haslam elitists can have special rules, so can the special clients that federal refugee contractor World Relief calls “citizens-in-waiting.” No driving taxis or working at the Tysons chicken plant for the highbrow refugees. First we were told that importing the uneducated Somalis to do the jobs that Americans won’t do fulfilled the humanitarian goal of providing corporate globalists with cheap labor.

Now the Nashville Chamber of Commerce says that Tennessee businesses are better off, even morally enviable, if they discriminate against white Americans, particularly Tennessee homegrown workers, if it helps the newly arrived refugee who has a degree.

Companies like Chipotle have committed to preferential hiring of refugees. They are in a partnership with one of the largest federal refugee resettlement contractors, the International Rescue Committee (IRC). Chipotle is a designated “preferred employment partner” just like Nashville is a “preferred resettlement site.”

So when politicians like state Rep. Tim Wirgau says “we got more people who don’t look for jobs because we keep handing them money,” or the political challengers who parrot “more jobs for Tennessee” are they okay with filling those jobs with refugees?

Make no mistake about it, Obama’s refugee contractors and the Nashville Chamber of Commerce want your children’s jobs, the ones your children need so they can start paying off their college loans. Were your children aware that the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) was hiring?

Recently arrived Kurdish refugee Shenwar Hussein took only five months to land his job with TDOT.

And while Haslam is pumping out “Tennessee Promise” and “Tennessee Reconnect” graduates, he and his cronies are enthusiastically importing competition for the jobs that he says is the way the citizens of Tennessee will prosper and prop up the state economically.

Why doesn’t TIRRC cough up some jobs?

TIRRC (TN Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition) wants more refugees to come to Tennessee and join the illegal immigrants for whom they want amnesty or what they euphemistically call “family reunification.”

TIRRC is in a great position to hand over staff jobs to newly arrived refugees and immigrants with higher education degrees. They have lots of Soros money and a new infusion of cash from the JM Kaplan Fund (the family of Welch’s grape juice).

With over one million dollars in annual revenue several years in a row, TIRRC has enough money to pay two directors and fourteen full-time staff. They have lobbyists and a Policy Coordinator. Imagine if they add a refugee with an elitist Ivy League degree – now that would make policymakers and apologists swoon.

Metro “Inclucivics” – white men out, racial quotas in!

The Metro Human Relations Commission is using “Inclucivics” to socially engineer the composition of the city’s workforce from the police department to the schools and every department and agency in between. It’s like affirmative action on steroids.

Nashville mayor Megan Barry says “it doesnt matter how you got here” so a little detail like being in the country illegally shouldn’t stand in her way of ensuring that all Hispanics are proportionally represented in Metro jobs. Once Mayor Barry implements the municipal ID program for illegal immigrants that she endorsed during her campaign, it will be a short step to changing Metro’s hiring practices. After all, to be fully effective, “Inclucivics” shouldn’t discriminate against illegal immigrant lawbreakers.

The mayor is also an enthusiastic supporter of refugee resettlement and representation from Islamist communities. After all, it helps facilitate Metro’s mandate that race and ethnicity are the most important characteristics for any job applicant.

It’s ironic that the phony progressives in Metro, who could have elected Howard Gentry as the first black mayor, opted instead for electing a white woman.

The professional left and the corporate globalist right are ideologically aligned against the economic interests of Tennessee’s citizens. It’s certainly one way to usher in “the New South.”
