Aug 7, 2017 – Last night at the St. Cloud City Council meeting, residents spoke out on the issue of the sustainability of St. Cloud, MN due to the massive refugee resettlement that has taken place since 2003.
This is about economics and the bottom line is the city council, the federal government & the county commissioners aren’t meeting their obligations of providing transparency.and working for the people of St. Cloud. People must understand that it isn’t the function of the U.S. Government at any level to secure the freedom and we’ll-being of the world. That duty is owed only to the legal citizens of the United States.
THIS is all about LOCAL…
local people affected
local taxes being paid
local crime rates,
Below is a summary from a St. Cloud patriot
Tonight the St. Cloud City Council members made a step forward to an open conversation. Granted a 3-4 vote was not a victory but one more council member decided to vote yes. This is a positive step forward.
We should all understand that we have authority to halt the Refugee Resettlement program in St. Cloud MN, by understanding law and educating those in authority.
8 U.S.C. § 1522(a)(2)(A) gives city officials the authority to halt or at least have significant influence in the resettlement process. Lutheran Social Services (LSS) understands this authority and limits the city officials from invites, or by not inviting them at all to the quarterly abstract meetings.
Please read the link below and understand your elected city officials have a voice in the Refugee Resettlement process. yet, city officials may have their own views of understanding Federal, state or local laws. Educate them. As a team we must educate these officials. E-mail all city Council members. Show them how much you know about this process. City Council member are elected officials, yet, they may be naive to State and Federal codes.
Jeff Johnson and George Hontos and one other stood tall tonight giving voice to their constituents…Imagine a group of citizens with more education, more passion, and more patriotism giving voice from the bow. Francis Scott Key was and is that example of Patriotism.
Give thanks to those who spoke and will speak. Great Job! If we cannot connect with the City officials by educating the law and the urgency of conversation, then we must create a campaign to remove them from their elected positions. We have the final word.
We urge the no voters to read the Federal Law specifications…”Federal Law permits local governments to seek a moratorium on new refugee resettlement activities in their community if adversely impacting current residents, local government can be permitted to apply to temporarily suspend the additional settlement of refugees. ”
Transcript from a speaker at the open forum:
Mayor. City Council Members.
The taxpayers and citizens of St Cloud and surrounding area, are here to request that you place on your next meeting agenda, a discussion and approval of a St Cloud Area “Economic impact study and analysis” of the refugee resettlement program and increasing 2nd wave migration from other states.
We are not simply asking for an analysis of the costs—but to be fair—we are asking for a thorough and transparent impact study which includes both costs and benefits of the resettlement of refugees and 2nd wave migration.
As it is estimated that the refugee-immigrant population is currently reaching a quarter of the area population… An honest open discussion of just how many immigrants and refugees that the area can “reasonably absorb”—and support—is a fair, reasonable, and responsible request.
We request that you work with Stearns county, the school district, state and local government agencies, local medical service providers, police and emergency services, as well as, the agencies which relocate refugees to the area.
While the public-private partnerships between the Federal government and nonprofit agencies, such as, Catholic Charities and Lutheran Immigrant and Refugee Services work together in resettling individuals from 3rd world countries—the taxpayers and local citizens are blocked from meetings held by these agencies—hindering transparency and accountability—as we, the local citizens, are not recognized as “Stake Holders.”
Catholic Charities and Lutheran Immigrant and Refugee Services receive millions in taxpayer dollars annually and many Minnesota business benefit from cheap labor—while local taxpaying citizens are left in the dark but, are expected to silently foot the bill on increased social and welfare services, medical, educational special needs of English Language Learners, and higher demands of police and emergency services… Simultaneously observing—declining real estate values, a sharp increase in rental housing, negative impacts to local school districts, rising poverty and increasing crime rates.
SCSU’s School of Public Affairs Research Institute provide a Land Use Study for the City of Waite Park titled, “An Analysis of Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunity and Threats.” The analysis cited a higher crime rate and higher number of police officers per 1,000 residents than the Minnesota average and identified an increasingly high ratio of rental/ownership of housing units, perhaps explaining lower average home sales than the state average.
A City of St Cloud study provided the same observations of an increase of over 66% in rental properties, in addition to rising poverty.
Gentleman, if there is nothing to hide—if the impact of the increasing numbers of immigrants and refugees are not straining the demand on local taxpayers but, are in fact a positive on our historically safe and vibrant community—then there should be no objection to a current, transparent, and accountable economic impact study and analysis so that we may reasonably and responsibly understand the costs and number of additional individuals we may be able to absorb and support in the St Cloud area.
As A Tool To Divide And Conquer
The Layman’s Primer
by Louis Beam
Excerpts: In modern times multiculturalism is instituted from the top down as an elitist ruling class tool used to play one or more racial or ethnic groups against another. The ensuing cultural melee serves the political designs, economic goals and power needs of elitist rulers and their sponsors. This technique was developed by Marxist ideologues who used multiculturalism in Russia to divide and conquer resistance to the institution of a communist state.
Those who sponsor multiculturalism are properly called multiculturalists and generally will be found to be those people with the least amount of personal culture appertaining to them. As a dying tree drops its leaves and is attacked by fungus and worms of decay, so to is a nation set upon by multiculturalists. The dominate culture is attacked from all sides. This is not so much a product of maliciousness as necessity. By vilifying, leveling, and weakening the dominant culture, an environment is created for social, political, and economic turmoil which produces change that will benefit the sponsors of a multiculturalist state. If the government and news media relentlessly pursue issues of race, gender, and diversity in preference to the real issues that need to be addressed, there will be an increasing division of society along the same lines. Which is exactly what the sponsors of multiculturalism want.
Social instability, caused by a steady erosion of standards and values, coupled with a scramble over dwindling economic opportunities by conflicting ethnic groups, produces precisely the alienation and conflict needed to implement a multicultural state. Further, the lack of common standards and values leads to personal disorganization, resulting in unsociable behavior. This is the life support system of a multicultural state. In a word: anomie.
Within the deleterious milieu of multiculturalism exists the propaganda opportunity for re-education of the people into a more malleable entity. A targeted population will be shaped mentally by new forms of public education in the schools, media indoctrination, and by elitist pronouncements. Thus placed in a crucible of economic necessity and social pressure, once free citizens become despondent masses, adjusting to and accepting fundamentally changing national circumstances as a matter of expedient survival. For the reticent, conformity by force will ensue in the form of legal penalties disguised as ant-drug, anti-terrorism, or anti-hate laws. All of this leading toward what George Orwell so aptly predicted in his book 1984:
“Almost certainly we are moving into an age of totalitarian dictatorships. An age in which freedom of thought will be at first a deadly sin and later on a meaningless abstraction.”
A necessary first step toward recovery is to look at politics, social policy, and government emanating from Washington D.C. with new eyes, unclouded by a lifetime of false information and deception propagated by elitist sponsors. Pretending any longer that the bought and paid for political prostitutes in Washington D.C. represent you or anyone you know is tantamount to cutting your own wrist with a razor blade. Self-destructive behavior may qualify one for government “protected class status” under diversity laws–but it will not save you, your family, or your nation.
America, Canada, and most of Europe are ruled by politicians about whom the best that can be said is that they are men of ill repute, each out to loot the state. One thing is clear, the American ruling elite of today are far closer in ideological viewpoint to world government ruled by a privileged few than it is to the world of the American Revolution or the Constitutional Convention of 1789. Yet still, the spirit of 1776 lives on in this land. For once again rebellion to tyrants in obedience to God is afoot. Listen closely and in the distance you can hear the ring of liberty’s bell calling gallant sons and noble daughters to her aid. They know no left, nor right, only treason. And they will not fear to answer. Let tyrants tremble. And though the heavens fall, let there be justice.
