Judicial Watch: ‘Unlawful’ State Dept ‘Stonewalled’ Request for Refugee Travel Loan, Taxpayer Loss Info

Judicial Watch announced on Feb. 7 that it filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of State after it “stonewalled” their Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for information regarding Refugee Travel Loans and associated taxpayer losses, an “unlawful delay that screams ‘cover up,’” according to Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

The State Department’s Bureau for Population, Refugees, and Migration provides funding for the loans to the International Organization for Migration (IOM). In 2016, the Bureau “spent nearly $545 million to provide new beginngs to the world’s most vulnerable refugees,” according to their website.

The IOM, which joined the United Nations last year, provides interest-free loans, furnished by the State Department, to “all refugees arriving in the United States,” their website says.

These loans can be lucrative to refugee resettlement agencies. The Washington Post reported in December 2015 that refugee resettlement agencies contracted by the State Department collect over $5 million per year in Refugee Travel Loan commissions.

Judicial Watch is seeking records on the number of Refugee Travel Loans issued by the State Department to the IOM from 2010 to the present, including the number of loans defaulted on and the amount of money written off on each defaulted loan.

where there is smoke there is fire

At least $545 million++++++ given out to "resettlement"  groups.   And cannot be accounted for.    So whose pockets have they greased.?????????

Like the Democratic activist folks who donated $2 million to Obama's campaign, I think, and got the contract to provide about 2 billion dollar, or so, Obama Phone distribution contract?  Yes, I wonder whose pockets are being filled?

The klintons?

The Hitllary State Department had multiple money funnels whereby she got money to the liberal progressive democrat muslim choices to "muddle" the middle east.

We are only now finding out the length and breadth of that mind boggling enterprise and it's HUGE cost to the American taxpayer.

While I dislike no peaceful peoples, I don't approve of the immigration of peoples we have nothing in common.  This country was created/founded by the white European peoples, this is our home, and it needs to be protected by our people.  We don't need our military in other countries.

In my city, about 25 years ago, I KNOW the government had to be behind the influx of foreigners to this city.  Before this city was a peaceful, clean city, it was 90% white.   Now it is 90% muslim, asian, hispanic,  indian, black, you name it.  And this happened  rapidly.  We have an enemy within our government.

Multiculturalism is a tool of the ungodly communist.  Bottom line, the enemy/satan want to destroy the God loving white people.   

As Bible Scripture says....Satan/serpent seed will use four dynasties to control/destroy in the latter days.....EDUCATION, POLITICS, ECONOMICS, RELIGION.  

For those that can see and hear, heed the warnings.  The last step, from what I understand, of a total tyranny is taking away the lawful citizens guns.

Watch a Netflix movie on your TV, called "Targeted".  It's about guns, government control.

I find it amazing that Judicial Watch can find out more and knows more than our CIA, FBI and all the rest. 

Again, there are so many moles, liberals, demorats and a host of other names I could call them still in position of power in our government. I'm not sure Trump can work it out in 4 years or maybe never. 

" ...The lawsuit is in response to the State Department’s failure to respond to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request seeking this information on February 5, 2016.

“This is an opportunity for the Trump State Department to come clean and clean up this refugee welfare program,” remarked Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton."

There are government standards for accounting that MUST be met or the law is broken and people need to go to jail...when it is said that one can not account for government funds... someone needs to go to jail, as there is no excuse for being unable to account for government funds.

Major fraud and theft is probable and the DOJ must act to identify those responsible... and then indict and jail them... where possible attempts to recover the funds must be part of the prosecution.

Hell's bells, Hillary's state dept. "misplacedl" 6, that's SIX BILLION DOLLARS.  She is still out breathing free air last I heard and no mention of charging her with anything.

Ooops, sorry, Norma, I didn't see your post and then posted almost the same info.

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
