Smith Research to ‘Stop the Refugee Resettlement Program’

USA- Tolerance imports Muslim Intolerance

Well, I have committed a big WHOOPS. Justin is aware of my penchant to locate verification for info in guest submissions for the blog. Ergo a few hours after he sent me his very awesome and informative post “Stop the Refugee Resettlement Program,” Justin sent me a rough outline of his notes for the essay submitted. I did not get to that email until today hence committing a grave injustice to Justin Smith. So yes I did my typical thing adding a few clarification links. Below is that outline that better associates the thoughts of Justin than I did in my info links. If I guessed correctly with my info links trust me it was purely coincidental. I should be brash and something like, ‘Great minds think alike.’ BUT trust me, Justin is the thinker here.

1. Paragraph one should be fairly well in the realm of common knowledge, but Ms. Michele Malkin’s piece from Sept 19, 2014 gives my assertion further credence: ‘Letting in the Wrong Refugees’

2. Paragraph two [Pertaining to Wyoming]:

Is only U.S. state not importing refugees getting ready to cave?


3. Paragraph three: Ms. Ann Corcoran’s Refugee Resettlement Watch provides a link that goes directly to the pdf on the ‘U.S. Refugee Resettlement Office 2011 report to Congress’ 

Also one may view Ms. Corcoran’s ‘A Tennessean responds to open borders agitators‘ July 19, 2014 for the “1991” reimbursement elimination and many other pertinent facts:

And the 66% statistic is from my great friend, author and investigator, Cathy Hinners who runs the following website (She also attended the October 26th meeting in Murfreesboro, TN):


6. Paragraph six:


It raises the issue whether the state or Congress should pay the costs of the federal program.”


I met personally with Mrs. Joanne Bregman [In the original post I somehow misspelled her name as “Bergman”] on October 26, 2014 at the Victory Life Church in Murfreesboro, TN and she once more made this observation, just as she had last year. We also spoke in depth regarding this situation and as it pertained to Don Barnett, who is a mutual friend and Brentwood, TN native, and his upcoming appearance in Cheyenne, Wyoming, which took place on November 2nd near the Capitol steps.


7. Paragraph seven: Mrs. Bregman gave these same stats during her presentation, but here is a link for readers:

17. Paragraph twenty: In 2013 Tennessee Representative Rick Womick and Senator Bill Ketron proposed TN HB1326/SB 1325 requiring reimbursement from these private refugee resettlement programs if they received federal money. I have personal knowledge of this because it was a major point of contention in the State Legislature and I am a personal friend of both Senator Bill Ketron (since our days at Middle Tennessee State University) and Representative Rick Womick (who I have attended numerous political events with).

Joe Carr 2

Justin Smith is writing in support of Joe Carr to unseat Republican Senator Lamar Alexander in Tennessee’s next Primary. You Tennessean voters need to read this if you are a Conservative pro-Second Amendment citizen. Smith itemizes a few of Senator Alexander’s failures in this regard.


Joe Carr is the Tea Party and Conservative anti-establishment hopeful to replace Senator Alexander. I am one of those that believes the GOP Establishment needs to be replaced with Conservatives that actually believe in less government, a fairer tax system, immigration reform that does not include outright amnesty, a free market economy and most of all – Original Intent interpretations of the U.S. Constitution over the Leftist deluded dilution of a Living Constitution. From what I have read Joe Carr represents the real Conservatives and Senator Alexander has swayed to status quo politics that essentially gives the farm away in compromises with Obama’s Leftist transformation vision of a new USA.


According to the Wall Street Journal, a Republican pollster places Senator Alexander up by 30 points from July 22-23 polling. My guess is the pollster asked GOP Establishment questions to bolster Alexander among Tennessee voters. That does sound a bit unsurmountable for Joe Carr, BUT David Brat showed that the GOP Establishment does not always get it right with the voters. Ask Eric Cantor.

More Than A Republican


By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 7/26/2014 6:34 PM


Last week State Representative Joe Carr (R) brought his bid for the U.S. Senate against incumbent Senator Lamar Alexander (R) to the national spotlight. On July 14th, nationally recognized radio and television political analyst, Laura Ingraham endorsed Joe Carr and backed her endorsement with a rousing rally for Carr on July 22nd, in front of approximately 600 people at the Millennium Maxwell Hotel in Nashville, TN. And the very next day, Sarah Palin, former Governor of Alaska, also offered her strong support and endorsement of Mr. Joe Carr.


It is no wonder that intelligent, strong, conservative women, such as Laura Ingraham and Sarah Palin, would support Joe Carr’s candidacy for the U.S. Senate, especially when one compares the pedigree of Carr’s and Alexander’s ideas. Carr stands on principles over politics in Tennessee’s 48th District, while Senator Lamar Alexander is far too willing to compromise with Obama and the Progressives to the point of betraying Tennesseans and the American people and facilitating Obama’s fundamental transformation of America, on issues like Obamacare/ACA, immigration “reform”, Common Core and our Second Amendment Rights.


In April 2013, Senator Alexander sided with Obama, Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) and the Progressive Democrats in their Toomey-Manchin gun registration scheme, S. 649, and voted against Senator Rand Paul’s filibuster. This was certainly a betrayal, since Alexander professes to be “pro-gun.”


Joe Carr clearly stands for the Second Amendment and against any anti-gun legislation. Carr has sponsored several bills in the Tennessee legislature that would expand gun owners’ rights, and he embraces ideas like “Constitutional Carry.”


On May 13, 2014, Alexander would not give the ‘Knoxville Sentinel‘ a “yes” or “no” answer whether he supports Common Core State Standards in education. And Joe Carr immediately asked, “How is it possible that the senior Senator from Tennessee can’t give Tennessee parents a ‘yes or no’ answer about the future of their kids’ education?” Carr concluded with, “I am fighting to repeal Common Core and I’d like to know if Sen. Alexander will join that fight or not.”


Repealing Obamacare/ACA is an issue of critical importance to many Americans, and it is beyond disgusting to witness Progressive Republicans-In-Name-Only, such as Lamar Alexander, pretend they cannot stop Obamacare. Alexander says he has voted 23 times to repeal Obamacare, and yet, when he had the opportunity to defund or delay the ACA in October 2013, he joined 28 other turncoat Republicans and voted to pass cloture in the Senate, 83-16.


Joe Carr has led the fight in Tennessee against building the ACA mandated “healthcare” exchanges. He has co-sponsored legislation that would prohibit Tennessee from participating in any Medicaid expansion authorized under the ACA, and he has co-sponsored a bill designed to halt implementation of regulatory schemes to operate the ACA, because most Americans are still completely opposed to the ACA and its controls over one-sixth of the economy and the individual.


When Alexander voted for the Corker Hoeven Bill (June 24, 2013) and the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Act (June 27, 2013), essentially giving amnesty to upwards of 30 million illegal aliens, he had to shamelessly align himself against his constituents in Tennessee and join a coalition of business groups, unions, gay rights, Latino and immigration advocates and quislings and Progressive Democrats, such as Chuck Schumer (NY) and Robert Menendez (NJ), in order to see both bills pass.


Joe Carr has fought hard to stop the illegal immigration problem in Tennessee, and he has set a national standard. On June 8, 2011, his Tennessee Lawful Employment Act (E-Verify/ HB1378) was signed into law. He has also sponsored legislation to prohibit “sanctuary cities”. Carr understands that the immigration “reform” bills passed by the U.S. Senate have contributed to the rise in illegal aliens attempting to cross the southern border, and he knows this is simply one more way for the Progressive Democrats to “perpetuate their attacks on the American way of life,” as he often states.


As Sarah Palin explained in her endorsement (The Washington Post July 23/ Sean Sullivan): “He’s stood up to those in his own party, fighting to enact some of the toughest illegal immigration legislation in the country and working to make Tennessee the 4th most business friendly state in the nation.”


Regarding Lamar Alexander’s Senate record, Palin stated, “Unfortunately advocating for amnesty, cash for clunkers, bailouts, raising the debt ceiling and many controversial Obama administration nominees has marred the incumbent’s record. It’s time for a change.”


On every issue critical to America, Lamar Alexander has sided with Democrats. He voted to take away Veterans’ benefits in 2012 and in February 2014. He believes in the Progressives’ man-made global warming myth and has signed on to the EPA’s job-killing initiatives and proposed massive spending on “green energy.” He has voted for every tax-hike. And, he also undermined true conservative Chris McDaniel’s Senate bid in Mississippi by donating $10,000 to Thad Cochran.


Much in the manner that a relatively unknown challenger, Dave Brat, was able to upset House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia’s June election, Joe Carr espouses very similar views to those held by Brat, and Carr stands strong on principled ideas and the U.S. Constitution , as it relates to issues, such as illegal immigration. This has enabled Carr to close a 24 point percentage gap to seven points over the past two months, according to Triton Polling, illustrating his fighting spirit.


Just as Laura Ingraham told Carr’s supporters, “What we need now in our country, we need fighters, we need individuals who stand up, buck the powers that be whether they be on the left and the right.” And during her July 14th radio show, she described Carr as being “no nonsense, a citizen legislator.”


The head of steam that gathered under Joe Carr’s campaign is rapidly becoming  a wave of support, as Tennesseans are in agreement with Sarah Palin that, “Joe Carr is the new voice Tennessee needs in the U.S. Senate,” because time and again he has taken the overreach of the Federal government to task and asked the right questions. Do we need an EPA so large it requires armed personnel, and do we need an IRS that requires 20,000 more agents just to enforce Obamacare? Never has any one vote been of such critical importance to Tennessee, possibly America, as the one voters cast on August 7th, if one cares about states’ rights and personal liberty as much as Joe Carr does.


If Joe’s own words do not inspire some to vote for him, they should certainly make us all think about the direction we are taking our nation: “It’s not enough to be a Republican. I’m a conservative and a Constitutionalist. … We are not at the 11th hour, we are at the midnight hour … I’m going up there (Washington, D.C.) to start a fight. We (our leaders in Congress/the Executive) have trampled on the legacy of 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence.”
