Apparently, anyone who wants to sabotage a campaign can just have me volunteer at their campaign event. I don’t know about you, but I see a lucrative career in my future!
Okay seriously folks, here’s the reality… AJ Kern is pro-America, pro-life, pro-capitalism, and pro-constitution.
Tom Emmer has refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2018 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests from Vote Smart and voters like you.
Kern has been very transparent about her position on issues important to voters. She was one of the first candidates to honestly discuss the refugee resettlement industry and its impact on MN communities.
Excerpts from Minnesota has the most refugees per capita in the U.S. Will that continue?
Minnesota has the highest number of refugees per capita nationwide, according to the U.S. Census and refugee-support agencies. With 2 percent of the nation’s population, Minnesota has 13 percent of its refugees.
Refugees cost an estimated $107,000 each in food aid, medical expenses and other services, according to one researcher. Communities have no control over the in-flow of refugees, yet they must share the cost of supporting them. And residents often don’t speak out or even ask questions of the process for fear of being called racists, according to Kim Crockett, vice president of the Center of the American Experiment, a conservative think tank based in Golden Valley.
Refugees are free to apply for taxpayer-funded government aid, like any other residents. Nonprofit groups often help them apply. (Nonprofit groups are funded by federal grants and grants = taxpayer dollars)
The refugee resettlement program is a federal effort, but the federal government “does not compensate Minnesota, or the local school districts, cities or counties, who may find themselves coping with large concentrations of refugees,” Crockett says. So when many refugees end up enrolled in Medicaid or assistance programs such as those for housing or transportation or language study, Minnesotans absorb the extra costs.
“Today, voluntary agencies like Lutheran Social Services and Catholic Charities have more say on where refugees are placed than elected officials in Minnesota,” Crockett adds. “That’s wrong.”
Crockett points out that voters never get to decide whether they want to support large numbers of refugees. “If you want to do charitable work, write a check,” Crockett said. “Don’t use my tax dollars for it.”
Excerpts from For Somali Immigrants, All Politics Really Is Local:
Somali Americans vote. Perhaps it’s because they especially appreciate the opportunity to participate in a democracy when their homeland has lacked a functioning government for decades. Or maybe, like earlier immigrant groups, Somalis excel at machine-style politics.
Regardless, their turnout rate often tops 80 percent. (What does that tell you?)
“In both 2008 and 2012, the Obama campaign hired Somali-specific organizers because there was such a concentrated number of Somali voters,” says Greg Schultz, who directed President Obama’s campaign in Ohio last year. “It was certainly worth the campaign’s focus.”

President Theodore Roosevelt believed that legal immigrants should ‘in good faith’ assimilate but, is predicated on the immigrant becoming nothing but an American. “There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all.”
Illegal immigration should not be rewarded with access to government assistance programs and a pathway to citizenship. Legal immigration, especially those individuals seeking an elected office, should obtain full citizenship, not dual-citizenship. An American cannot serve two masters. There is one flag, one language, one Constitution and one culture—the American culture. Assimilation and self-reliance are key to an immigration system that benefits Americans.
Written during a time when refugees were fleeing communism, the Refugee Act of 1980 is outdated and must be reformed. Until the President and Congress reform the law–the federal program must be terminated.
Minnesota is experiencing a growing influx of refugee resettlement. Along with the new residents comes security concerns, unfunded federal obligations, unplanned impacts on schools, city and county services, as well as, unintended consequences to property values and rising poverty.
The 6th Congressional District of Minnesota needs a moratorium on refugee resettlement until costs and associated issues related to transparency, accountability, and national security may be evaluated. Babin bill (H.R. 80 formerly H.R.3314) Resettlement Accountability National Security Act of 2017–A bill Congressman Emmer has failed to support and get passed into law–provides a moratorium on refugee resettlement while the Government Accounting Office conducts an audit examining federal, state, and local costs.
This bill prohibits the admission of alien refugees into the United States unless Congress passes a joint resolution giving the Department of Homeland Security authority to resume admitting them.
The Government Accountability Office shall report on: (1) the national security impact of refugee admissions; and (2) specified costs of providing refugees with benefits under Medicare, Medicaid, disability insurance under title II of the Social Security Act, the supplemental nutrition assistance program (SNAP, formerly the food stamp program), and low income rental housing assistance.
I will support this act and work to pass it!
Emmer has failed to support this act. The question is–Why? With the second largest Somali refugee community–not just the state of Minnesota… but, the entire country. Why wouldn’t Congressman Emmer support this act which gives control back to Congress, providing transparency and accountability to the gargantuan refugee resettlement costs??
I will support and work to pass this legislation.
This bill requires the Dept of State to report to specified Congressional Committees with 60 days indicating: (1) whether the Muslim Brotherhood meets the criteria for designation as a foreign terrorist organization; and (2) if not, which criteria have not been met.
The U.S. desperately needs to pass this Act in designating the Muslim Brotherhood and front groups, such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Muslim American Society (MAS) and Muslim Student Association (MSA), as the terrorist organization that they are.
The Muslim Brotherhood is conducting civilization jihad within the United States–infiltrating government and political parties. It must be stopped.
Congratulations to AJ Kern for her courage and willingness to stick her neck out in a contentious and dirty campaign. AJ embodies the values of dedication, discipline and passion to change our failing great state of Minnesota. She is a true American patriot and for that, we salute you AJ!

When the liberals finally take over, society will resemble the movie The Purge. Unlike the movie, the Purge will not a 12 hour holocaust played out one time a year. It will be a 24/7/365 event. Nobody will be safe. The concept was made into a trilogy. Then, this is being followed by a 10 part TV mini-series to air after Labor Day. What are they trying to tell us? Here is the complete story.
