Indian IT Worker H-1B Visa Scam In US

NEW DELHI, India — When news about an American company hiring Americans gets widespread coverage in India, there’s clearly something unusual going on. So why would Indian newspapers, TV stations and financial websites be interested — arguably more interested than most US media — in the announcement by New Jersey-based IT firm Cognizant Technology Solutions that it will create 10,000 new American jobs?

The short answer is that most of Cognizant’s 166,400 staff are based in India. Only 29,000 work in the US, mostly at the firm’s headquarters in Teaneck, NJ. Cognizant is a major player in the global outsourcing industry, and India is the world’s outsourcing hub. But most of its revenues come from the US.

In its most recent quarter, the company reported earning $1.78 billion in the US, boosted by “Obamacare.” Insurers and states hired Cognizant to help code online insurance exchanges. For many Indian techies, working for a company like Cognizant is a chance for a US transfer and a slice of the American dream. And those 10,000 new American jobs that got so much Indian media attention may mean 10,000 fewer jobs for them Indians.

Socialist Pope Francis Abandoing Europe To Islam

Pope Francis surrendering Europe to Muslims.
Has the Pope Abandoned Europe to Islam? In 2006, Pope Benedict XVI said what no Pope had ever dared to say -- that there is a link between violence and Islam. Ten years later, Pope Francis never calls those responsible for anti-Christian violence by name and never mentions the word "Islam."

Pope Francis does not even try to re-evangelize or reconquer Europe. He seems deeply to believe that the future of Christianity is in the Philippines, in Brazil and in Africa. Probably for the same reason, the Pope is spending less time and effort in denouncing the terrible fate of Christians in the Middle East.

"Multiculturalism" in Europe is the mosque standing on the ruins of the church. It is not the synthesis requested by Pope Francis. It is the road to becoming extinct. Asking Europe to be "multicultural" while it experiences a dramatic de-Christianization is extremely risky.

White Flight: Europeans Fleeing Western Europe

Western Europeans Flock To Christian, Traditionalist Hungary To Escape Migrant Crisis. Growing numbers of citizens from Western European nations are moving to conservative, Christian central Europe to escape the developing political and social situations of their home countries.

While the target nations — Hungary and the Czech Republic — have hardened themselves against illegal migrants by building fences and rejecting the European Union’s forced resettlement programme, they have welcomed the migration of right-wing “refugees” from the first world.

Germany’s Bayerischer Rundfunk reports on the experience of an estate agent with experience selling homes in Hungary’s picturesque Lake Balaton who said the number of “disaffected” Germans seeking property there to escape their own country was on the rise.

Win Maw Oo’s Funeral 28 Years After Her Killing

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) -- Dying from soldiers' bullets, the young protester told her father not to lay her soul to rest until democracy reigned in her homeland. It has taken 28 years, but it is done. Democracy helps fulfill long-dead Myanmar teen’s last wish.

The time was finally right to perform a funeral ceremony for 16-year-old Win Maw Oo when the National League for Democracy party of Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi came to power in Myanmar this year, after decades of bitter struggle.

Her former classmates joined her parents Sunday for the rites, led by Buddhist monks. A doctor who tried to save her life was also there. On display was a famous photo of Win Maw Oo taken just after she was shot; it made the cover of Newsweek. The ceremony is intended to free the souls of the dead. Participants chanted along with the monks, spoke Win Maw Oo's name and sprinkled holy water.

Burmese Refugees With Deadly TB In Fort Wayne

(Compilation of related articles published in 2015 and May 2016.)

The Fort Wayne Burmese and infectious Tuberculosis (TB). The number of cases of TB in Indiana declined steadily for 54 years, from more than 1,800 in 1956 down to 90 in 2010. It has increased steadily each year since, from 90 in 2010 up to 108 in 2014 and up to 117 in 2015, according to the Indiana State Department of Health.

Not surprisingly, the increase in TB cases has mirrored the increase in resettled refugees, which rose from 1,156 in 2012 to 1,612 in 2014 to 1,885 in 2015. Eighty percent of Indiana’s 1,885 resettled refugees in 2015 came from Myanmar (Burma), a country with one of the highest TB morbidity rates in the world. That percentage has remained steady in the state since 2007.

As a result, Indiana has become the site of one of the largest Burmese communities in America. Ninety-nine percent of the refugees were resettled in just two counties. Eighty percent of the refugees were resettled in Marion County, (Indianapolis), while 19 percent were resettled in Allen County (Fort Wayne).

Islamic State (ISIS) Rape Hellhole For Yazidi Girls

Yazidi 9-yrs old ISIS rape victim.
Yazidi Girl Exposes ISIS Rape Hellhole. A new televised interview, conducted in Arabic with a Yazidi girl who endured sexual captivity at the hands of the Islamic State, was published on March 22, 2016. It appeared on "Shabaab [Youth] Talk," hosted by Ja'far Abdul.

The teenage girl, who went by the pseudonym of Birvan, was enslaved when she was 15 and endured months of captivity before she managed to escape. She is now 17. Based on the 40-minute interview, her story is as follows:

Yazidis were escaping from their war-torn village near Tel Affar, Iraq, when they were intercepted on the road by four ISIS operatives. The men swore that if the Yazidis would cooperate and answer some questions, no harm would befall them and they would be allowed to return home in peace. Asked how many Yazidis there were, Birvan says she recalls only 95 men and their families — "many, many women and children."

Mark Zuckerberg And New Progressive Plutocrats

Silicon Valley inspires utopian thinking. After revolutionising everything from the media to communications to taxi services, progressive elites in the Bay Area are now eyeing up government and politics, wondering how they can “disrupt” both. Will American politics survive their delusions of grandeur?

The latest billionaire buffoon is Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook. Having noticed that Jack Dorsey is out-doing him in the realm of leftist political whackery, the social media kingpin has begun to wear his progressivism on his sleeves. Facebook’s users — far more numerous than Twitter’s — are sure to suffer.

Recently, we reported that Zuckerberg reprimanded a number of Facebook employees who crossed out “Black Lives Matter” slogans and replaced them with “All Lives Matter” on the company walls. You’d think that a liberal like Zuckerberg would appreciate a message of discrimination being replaced with a message of inclusiveness, but I suppose that sort of thinking went out of fashion with Martin Luther King, Jr.

London-istan Buses Proclaim “Glory To Allah”

A blown-off London Bus at 7/7 slaughter.
Immediately After Muslim Mayor Elected, London’s Iconic Buses Proclaim “Glory To Allah”. The Islamization of Britain made an immense advance this week, as a Muslim with extensive ties to jihadis and Islamic supremacists, Sadiq Khan, was elected mayor of London, just as London buses are set to carry ads proclaiming the “glory of Allah.”

It’s a sign of the times – and a sign of things to come. Is anyone really surprised? That a man such as Sadiq Khan, who has shared a platform with open Jew-haters, could still be elected mayor of London, is an indication of how far gone down the Islamic drain Britain already is.

In Sadiq Khan’s campaign, his opponents brought up his close ties to jihadis, Islamic supremacists and Islamic Jew-haters as a blot on his record. Soon enough in Britain, however, that sort of thing will be a selling point for candidates appealing to an increasingly Muslim electorate.

London Has Fallen Into Muslim Hands: England Next!

Labour Party politician Sadiq Khan has been sworn in as mayor of London. He is the first Muslim to lead a major European city.

Khan, 45, is the London-born son of Pakistani immigrants. His father was a bus driver and he grew up with seven siblings in a government-subsidized apartment. He studied law, became a university professor and served as chairman of the civil liberties pressure group Liberty. He was elected to Parliament in 2005. Khan's supporters say he is the epitome the Muslim immigrant success story.

Khan — who won 57% of the ballot, or 1.3 million votes, a number which happens to be roughly equal to Muslim population of London — has promised to be "the British Muslim who takes the fight to the extremists."

Others are not so sure. During the election campaign, Khan faced a steady stream of allegations about his past dealings with Muslim extremists and anti-Semites.

ASSK Asks US Not To Refer Bengalis As Rohingya

US Ambassador was told not to use the term "Rohingya".
BANGKOK — Myanmar recognizes 135 ethnic groups within its borders. But the people who constitute No. 136? They are the people-who-must-not-be-named.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, the leader of Myanmar’s first democratically elected government since 1962, embraced that view last week when she advised the United States ambassador against using the term “Rohingya” to describe the persecuted Muslim population that has lived in Myanmar for generations.

Her government, like the previous military-led one, will not call the Rohingya people by that name because it does not recognize them as citizens, said her spokesman, U Kyaw Zay Ya, a Foreign Ministry official.

Who Ruined The US Oil Market? Dodd-Frank!

Who Ruined the U.S. Oil Market? It wasn't just OPEC. The next big crisis facing commercial banks and corporate bondholders doesn't involve mortgages, but it has everything to do with the mortgage crisis that began in 2008.

The knee-jerk reaction of Congress that created the legislative mess known as "bank reform" has driven lenders away from consumers and into the arms of oil. And now that greasy paramour is showing her fickle ways to be exactly like her sub-prime mortgage sister. Why? 2010's Dodd-Frank financial reform law. Dodd-Frank's intent was to remove systemic risks from the U.S. financial system while increasing consumer protections.

Controversy has surrounded the law since its inception, with banks both large and small grappling under its tentacles of regulation requiring everything from capital stress tests to writing living wills. But these new regulatory intrusions pale in comparison to the effects that one Dodd-Frank entity has had on lending and the U.S. economy.

The Bloody Fight Over Bangladesh’s Secularism

The head of biggest Madrassa in Bangladesh
believes non-believers must be destroyed.
Islamist militants continue to target secular activists, journalists, and religious minorities in the South Asian country. The debate over Islam’s role in Bangladesh has devolved into machete attacks against secularists and religious minorities in homes and on the streets of the overwhelmingly Muslim nation.

On Monday, Xulhaz Mannan, an editor at the country’s first LGBT magazine, was hacked to death in his apartment at the hands of several men who posed as couriers. One other person was killed and another injured in the attack in Dhaka, the capital. Mannan, a leading gay-rights advocate, also worked for the U.S. Agency for International Development.

Although no group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, assailants in previous deadly assaults—including on journalists, minorities, and secular activists—have claimed links to ISIS. The government has, however, dismissed those links, saying ISIS does not operate in the country of more than 150 million people, more than 90 percent of whom are Muslim.

A Role Reversal For Myanmar And Thailand

In Thailand coups are considered jokes by both Thais and tourists
because most were bloodless as hardly anyone got killed
but in Burma soldiers killed thousands on the streets.
BANGKOK – Rarely do next-door neighbors move as rapidly in opposite political directions as Thailand and Myanmar have in recent years. After more than a half-century of military dictatorship, Myanmar has restored democratic rule, and now has a civilian-led government led by the former political prisoner Aung San Suu Kyi and her National League for Democracy (NLD).

Thailand, by contrast, has twice reverted from popular rule to military dictatorship in the past decade, owing to coups in 2006 and 2014. What accounts for these neighbors’ reversal of political fortune?

Myanmar initiated its shift toward democracy in 2003, when the country’s military dictatorship unveiled a seven-step roadmap. At first, the plan was ridiculed as another empty promise from the country’s brutish military junta. And, indeed, the generals locked up dissidents, shot protesting monks, and kept Suu Kyi and other NLD leaders under house arrest for another six years.

Monks-led Nationalists Rallied At US Yangon Embassy

At about 1 Pm on yesterday 28 April thousands and thousands of Burmese nationalists led by Ma-Ba-Tha monks marched to the vast fortified compound of US Embassy in Rangoon in Burma. The mass protest was responding to the US Embassy’s Public Statement issued on 20 April referring to the tragic boat sinking near the Bengali-Muslim refugee camps in Arakan State.

On Tuesday 19 April 2016 a ferry boat with 65 Bengali-Muslim passengers including men, women, children and babies, capsized and sank at the entrance of Thay Choung river after being hit by big wave while they were travelling from Sin Tat Maw Refugee camp in Pauktaw Township to Sittwe Township, Arakan, to buy food. 15 passengers died and about 20 are missing. And some children and a baby are among the dead.

In response to the tragic sinking of Muslim refugee boat the US Yangon Embassy issued following public statement which evidently has angered Buddhist nationalists in Burma as the US Embassy has referred to the Bengali-Muslim refugees as “Rohingya community” the loaded term hated by most Burmese but deliberately used by Muslims all over the world and their supporters such as US President Barack Hussein Obama and the United Nations and EU.
