I told you about this upcoming conference here.
Just noticed now that the event was held at the SIMPLOT auditorium. Thought I recognized that name—-first saw it here when we heard that the JR Simplot Company was building a new meatpacking plant near Boise. Of course! Cheap refugee labor! So much for humanitarianism!
Here is the news from Boise Weekly about the event this past Monday (emphasis is mine):
President Donald Trump’s name doesn’t appear on the agenda for the 34th annual Frank Church Conference, titled “America’s Future: Refugees, Migration and National Security,” but discussion of Trump’s restrictions on refugees and immigrants took center stage Monday at the filled-to-capacity Simplot Ballroom at the Boise State University Student Union.
The Frank Church conference was packed with panel discussions and addresses from a number of experts on the issue of refugees, both national and local, including representation from the Idaho office of Refugees, the Idaho chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union and the Boise office of the International Rescue Committee. The conference’s midday address was delivered by Anne C. Richard, former Assistant Secretary of State.
In her conclusion, Richard offered a question instead of a statement.
“What are you going to do about this?” Richard asked the gathering. “Will you vote? Will you write a letter to the editor? Will you visit your member of Congress? Will you stay abreast of current events? I put it to you.”
I’ll repeat for the umpteenth time—you have to match them with political action if you want the truth to come out. That is, if you want to preserve western civilization (in addition to your home town!).
When I look at the Boise Weekly story I’m seeing only one comment at this time. Where are you Idahoans?
About Anne Richard, former Obama Asst. Secretary of State and former Veep at one of the nine federal contractors—the International Rescue Committee:
Richard, like so many in the refugee industry has revolved in and out of government for decades. She says on her biography at wikipedia that in 1994 she helped create the International Crisis Group. Sometime when you have a few minutes it might be worth your time to understand what that group was (and is).
Here is just a bit of their history:
Discussions continue throughout 1994 as to what form this new organisation should take. There are heated debates about whether the organisation should be an operational outfit directly involved in delivering aid, or an advocate for action by others.
On 17 November, Abromowitz’s Carnegie Endowment publicly announces “a concerted effort to consider the launching of a new International Crisis Group” with three main functions: assessment, advice and advocacy. George Soros’s Open Society Institute provides US$200,000 to finance continued planning activities. Over the latter half of the year, former US Congressman Stephen Solarz travels to over twenty countries to discuss the proposed organisation and raise funds. Not everyone welcomes him, One senior European government minister complains, “What you are trying to do is to get us to give you a golden stick with which to beat us over the head, in order to get us to do what we’ve already decided we do not want to”.

Where are you Rep. Labrador? Are you looking for more refugee labor for the state too?
Idaho folks need to look very carefully at who is funding political campaigns in the state especially as the 2018 governor’s race rolls around. That race is a perfect opportunity to focus attention on the issue of refugee resettlement in the state. Make it a pivotal issue in the campaign.
