What American people must understand,they have not had freedom for 80 years and it began with Reagan Administration passing or changing laws,so the average citizen between borders may know someone does wrong in their lifetimes;but the laws say that is not against the law or criminal behavior.
So when Office of Refugee Resettlement was formed first as an idea and put into creation,and fully operational those staff had laws rewritten that said if the United States sends these people into Central American countries posing as social workers/nuns;to kidnap children and bring them back to U.S. soil their are protected under rewritten law.
When Bush Sr and Jr had their job titles with White House and Admnistration for 4 years or 8 years,laws were passed as USA always does showing that nothing is illegal in their minds;because the law says it's legal behavior or actions committed on U.S. Soil.
That leaves American citizens actually prisoners between borders,where laws are written everyday to take down anybody telling the truth or getting too close to truth on things committed by Insidious USA.
When you look at story of African American guy taking to Twitter and a single tweet about how he felt towards President Obama;has now landed him in GITMO or federal prison.THeir is no free expression or speech bu it's an illusion for entrapment,when the American fails to see all left standing in a forest are dying trees losing oxygen.
This incident with Social Media helped new law be passed stripping Americans of freedoms or options since they never had freedoms anyway for 80 years,by creating a algorithm that pinpoints allegedly criminal behavior on internet before the crimes are committed in streets of USA.
So when Pre-crime Unit is announced and other countries are doing it,the group that actually controls USA and other countries wanted everybody dumbed down through use of chemtrails with forced vax laws;so that is no longer a medical choice of yours as individual liberty or right.
Freedom died 80 yrs ago,and final nails in the coffins of every individual wanting to believe laws are written to protect the majority called 99% in USA;fail to see laws are written to protect insidious behaviors of staff in small offices spread throughout United States at Office of Refugee Resettlement and Health and Human Services.
The laws are never written to protect you the general public with drones in the sky,when that is a upgrade from detecting your body heat 80 years ago under Reagan Admnistration,to today with modernized technology on every street corner and drone in the sky spying on your or watching your every move. Because a law was written called NDAA,National Defense Authorization Act and Real ID Act, that enforces no more privacy in your lifetimes between U.S.borders for greater purpose of fighting terror in the world.
So in conclusion,the top 1% and New World Order Group and business related organizations working with them have written laws the last 80 years to protect themselves,not you the 99% because if laws are written stripping you of freedoms every month.You are just being reminded you never were free,or will see freedom again in your lifetimes like last 80 years.
And the laws as their true intended purposes are for,is to protect the top 1% and show as written in the laws last 80 years people like Office of Refugee Resettlement can never be called criminals;as U.S. Government at highest level passed laws showing these staff can never be held accountable for known criminal activities as they are protected by laws.
So we may know separating families from their children that come from Central American Countries to U.S.borders or kidnapping them in their home country that is always better than USA;is criminal behavior the laws have been written stating all the staff of ORR are justified in their decisions 24/7 even when kids belong at home with their biological or legal families.

Office of Refugee Resettlement is above family togetherness in 2016,when their attitudes when families of same dna call get the runaround "72 hours waiting period".So in order to get answers you must keep calling until someone understands this is the humane thing to do,and not question authority but confirm the children are not altered in any way.
If a child is altered in any way by a psychotropic drug,or forced to undergo dna testing for purposes not of this earth then the "X-Files" tv show and movie franchise is not that far off base in reality. But we will never know the truth,for they are above god and my documentation of experiences,over the phone,via email,and in person,plus the everyday research analysis from books and all methods of information.
Office of Refugee Resettlement must show at some point accountability in America,otherwise don't even waste your time with the real American people by showing up to committee hearings.Embrace who you are,and we already know many of your staff are "wolves in sheeps clothing". So just be honest with what you won't do at all,in answering questions,and show us what you actually do with the children like putting them on display in a major city or another part of the world.
So when questions are asked and you laugh in the face of families,committees,and all those wanting to preserve humanity.Then yes,you are above god in your arrogance debacle,showing us that words don't scare you or do they when the trees on Capital Hill got shaken by myself on my show.
Nobody is above god,unless their "immortal" or worshipping another god not exactly behind pearly gates and fluffy clouds.Something pretty and nice is not Office of Refugee Resettlement,just nightmares and dreamscapes not written by Author Stephen King.
So go ahead and keep the children from Latin America and Mexico,separated illegally from their families but remember if Rapunzel was able to let down her hair and have a prince rescue her;these rules that include no shoes can be brought to the child,for fear they might escape the fences while telling public on a website.
They are all their on free will,and don't wish to escape or are happy but visitors are not allowed once the child is separated from parent or guardian,and place into Office of Refugee Resettlement with supporting programs such as Catholic Charities or Catholic Guardians.
They leave the borders of USA,and exit Family Detention Centers like Don Hutto in Texas only to never see their families again for months,and some children a few years until they age out of the operations called Office of Refugee Resettlement.
And in closing,when I inquired on the phone back in December 2015,about children in their facilities,and was forced to leave voicemails "being lucky in having that option available" I find out they filed a complaint regarding my concern for the welfare of children.
What conspiracy theories are not in reality around Office of Refugee Resettlement,on 3/9/16,let's just say you can play tic tac toe with what theories actually exist around the lies circled by this agency.
In other words their is enough reality to go around for everybody,proving USA is running illegal operations behind Office of Refugee Resettlement,and nothing will change when kids are crying for their families everyday and theories became factual.
Not just some favorite Sci-Fi movie like Star Trek Generations,Star Trek First Contact,and anything that has to do with Artificial Intelligence.Which was great movie by Steven Spielberg by the way,so keep calling the agency with a small office at phone numbers listed on their websites.
Stay pro-active and keep calling,is the first step everybody in the world can do if they care about children in Latin American countries,and prefer keeping their families together not separated and hidden behind a invisible fortress spread throughout United States called ORR or Office of Refugee Resettlement.

Instead of Iowa Caucus representing all of America's best interests at heart to restore things taken away in our lifetimes including freedoms and jobs shipped overseas,many at the Caucus vested more time from Latino Viewpoint to choose the guy with latino last name in hopes the new deportation plan announced by Obama Administration won't continue with GOP.
But here is the sad thing again,Iowa Caucus for GOP can pass amnesty right away when they get into White House,but that is not necessary as majority of people are not Latino in United States;so the Southern States will not be won by Ted Cruz as he is still a minority in those states and the Deep South elects those who are "True Southern Pride".
If Latinos or American Citizens wish to restore their faith in god,why not start with renewing yoru freedoms,choices,and not staying on a crash course in politics by electing "Donald Trump the businessman",and be safe with your families as he never worked for the establishment that ruined American dreams and hopes,nationwide.
The establishment are the monies paid to all the politicians whom,would rather have fatter purses and wallets than representing "You the American People". A nation bankrupt with "IOU'S" is not a nation united,but simply divided because of political correctness in every state.
But with Donald Trump 2016 GOP Campaign,you had a businessman as he is no politician working against the American people,rather with the "We The People"as people often forget in politics;to restore their faith and throw away that "empty hope" brought forth by Obama Administration and politicians on both sides of the field in two major parties.
You have a businessman named Trump,who would bring jobs back to America,at a time now factories overseas are closing that ruined America's economy by providing their foreign cars,but refused to take our American Autos.
In order for change to occur in our lifetimes,people in a caucus or election make up the environment we live in and avoid responsibility for their actions by simply being under an umbrella of "political correctness" to be mute or silent voices;that is worse than actions of any country that strip away your choice to refuse vaccines and stand on a wildlife refuge to claim 'free choices for all".
When laws are passed by the establishment which Ted Cruz and other politicians work for in America,the 2016 GOP field with the Iowa Caucus has showed,the past is allowed to bite us in rear again already by forgetting simple,basic recurring history points .
A few history recurring points in wrapping this up ,Iraq War was a misled pre-emptive strike not just against Middle East but America's Heartland of Dreams and freedom,where afterward in White House that elected President admitted he lied about WMD's. And just wanted revenge for his father back in 1991 or simply put "Persian Gulf War" where Saddam Hussein didn't like George H.W. Bush.
Then we come to gun control issues and Veteran Medical Care,with former soldiers who returned from overseas who lost their jobs,homes,vehicles,and are refused daily medical care by hospitals who have them placed on 'delayed waiting lists" where they purge the names of heroes from getting better,by getting treatment for PTSD and other medical issues.
2015 ended with half of our divided nation,being rendered homeless and unemployed but only one billionaire who can employ all of America;through businessman negotiations around a table is named Donald Trump.
If we embark on a sinking Titanic ship ride,in 2016 GOP Race for White House by not electing Donald Trump.We are setting ourselves up for this size of a disaster like Titanic,"Cruz'n For A Bruisin".
And a nation divided will eventually become a civil war in the heartland,thanks to the Caucuses in Midwest and nationwide.That will not surrender their guns because as those who defended a country called USA in uniform for military,actually went overseas to defend and protect their families,loved ones,and friends from dangerous environments.
But will do the same here in Heartland and all over the United States,because simply put "they are defending the same people,they actually wanted to protect from a Civil War or invasion into United States like RED DAWN scenarios".
We must elect Donald Trump in 2016 GOP Presidential Election,for he can slow down the establishment and freeze their executive orders,that wish to split up families non-stop as done at the borders with Central American families,to qualify their children for "Office of Refugee Resettlement to get billions of dollars,as part of the establishment".
He is our real life hero,like it or not,closest to the thing we actually need or people will be using their Passports to leave America,the minute both elected candidates are confirmed from both sides of the playing field for two major political parties in GOP and Democratic Party.
Remember you had only one businessman,who wanted to "Make America Great Again",and that was not Ted Cruz or other politicians working for the establishment only wanting "We The People" to be bruised by more dangerous EXECUTIVE ORDERS AND POLICIES keeping us industrialized slaves without enough steady income to pay our bills,and provide food for our families.
Which is not family values of positivity,rather in reality a 'dysfunctional nation' wanting to fed things from a "Soylent Green factory run by Monsanto" part of the establishment;that causes us to become weak and not defy Authority demanding "Accountability in America'.
With Donald Trump,you have already let your voices be heard as young or old people,but it is the action of voting in Caucuses and Elections letting "Big Brother Government know you truly don't like being poorer than top 1%".
Let Donald Trump provide equality for us all,by closing the borders which provides national security and protection from dangerous groups and viruses,then restore our jobs by re-opening factories shut down by greed in high executive offices.
Make America Great Again,and bringing actual physical jobs back to America,not Virtual Reality jobs,together with Donald Trump people can move back into their homes or buy one for their families and provide food on the table,and wealth for us all.
Signing off,Poppen Report

The Office of Refugee Resettlement is claiming to be "above god',while ignoring the cries of innocent children at U.S. borders along Texas,California,Arizona.And anywhere else we want to build a wall to show no humanity to the world.
When phone calls were coming in,ringing off the hook for Office of Refugee Resettlement employees "Sarah Viola and Kenneth Wolfe" their were asked questions by media,Governors,State Representatives,and Staff of White House's Obama Administration. The response was bluntly made by ORR, "We are above god,but who is this Poppen Report". by Sarah Viola and several ORR faces gone red.
The truth on Office of Refugee Resettlement is simple (ORR),loves being a thorn (ORR) in everyone's backside with getting mad over people asking questions;to gain "Accountability in America".
But sadly,no accountability in USA will come from not having oversight of their operations,and removal process of staff abusing their power daily;by simply separating families from children at border, who come from Central American countries. To process the child as (UAC) Unaccompanied Minor,to hold beyond 72 hours any child who had all their paperwork in on first 3 hours for December 3rd,2015.Then uses the children's shelters run by Catholic Charities,who care more about the kids "seeking to go home to family" and not be given dysfunctional policies or procedures that leave children crying daily and supervised by ORR staff.
In order for a positive conclusion,Staff of Office of Refugee Resettlement cannot be above god or President of United States as this leaves an agency tied to ACF/HHS,running the countries supply of children for some secretive agenda.
We must have our questions be met with answers,so we can relieve our minds pertaining to the children of the world;and understand fully laws are broken pertaining to human rights;so Obama Administration had not performed "Hope"for a better America,and "Change"we desperately needed at a time when voters expected better conditions than provided under Bush Administration Senior Officials.
Office of Refugee Resettlement is not above god,if they come from same bloodline.Do they show positive emotions representing USA,by saying "Who is Poppen Report,and we are above god.So we don't need to report to anybody wearing brown shirts."
Poppen Report,Signing Off.

(NOTHING IS EVER WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE IN THE WORLD WE LIVE IN,SO WATCH THE SKIES AND FILM THE SKIES EVERYDAY IN 2016)
The case of the Hopkinsville Goblins is regarded as one of the most significant and well documented cases in the history of ufology, and to this day many ufo investigators and sceptics are stumped by it. It is all the more impressive due to the fact that there are dozens of witnesses to the event, including police officers and state troopers, and similar events were experienced throughout North America, and even in Wales.
In August, 1955 in Kentucky, the Calloway family were visiting the Suttons in their rural farmhouse, and strange lights and saucer-shaped objects were seen in the sky. The families tried to remain calm, dismissing it as a vivid shooting star until strange noises were heard outside and their dog began a-whimpering. Two men, Billy Ray Taylor and Elmer â€œLuckyâ€ Sutton (inappropriate nickname, given the circumstances), went outside with their rifles before witnessing â€œluminous, three-and-a-half-foot-tall beings with oversized heads, big, floppy, pointed ears, glowing eyes, and hands with talons at their endsâ€ emerging from the trees. They appeared to float and steer with their arms as their legs were thin and weak. When it began to approach the house with its hands raised, the men took this as threatening behaviour and began shooting at the creature.
Now, I donâ€™t know about you, but I thought putting your arms up was the international (if not interstellar) symbol for peace. And furthermore, these aliens presumably have more advanced technology than us as they managed to travel many light years to earth, so the last thing I would want to do is fuck with them.
Upon shooting them, which sounded like striking metal, the creatures fled and the men followed, only to be accosted by an alien hiding above their porch and grasping at their hair. At this stage, the men decided theyâ€™d had enough terror for one night, so both families held up inside the house. The creatures then began to pop up at different windows around the house in what was described as â€˜a playful mannerâ€™, yet they were shot at anyway. I like to imagine this played out much like an extra-terrestrial version of Whack-a-Mole.
After presumably running out of credits for this hilariously frightening arcade game, they fled to the police station, where they were deemed sane, drug-free, â€˜not the type to cause a fussâ€™ and â€˜frightened beyond comprehensionâ€™. The police also witnessed weird lights in the sky and a green glow in a forest. The creatures left before dawn.
Sceptics struggle to criticise this story, claiming all they saw was â€˜a monkey painted in silver that had escaped from the circusâ€™ or maybe a Great Horned Owl, which to me, just looks like an owl…
All I can say is: â€œWatch the Skies, man!â€

Industry keeps local man’s company ‘busy full time’
By Hector Gonzalez
It’s a business that requires client confidentiality, and even most satisfied customer isn’t likely to brag about their purchase.
A safe room is a highly secure space inside a home designed to be discreet and to offer protection during a home invasion, terrorist attack or other life-threatening event. Most safe rooms include some type of communication system or closed-circuit television so those inside can contact the police.
The 2002 movie “ Panic Room” with Jodie Foster gave instant publicity to safe rooms, and a New York Times article in May reported the industry continues to grow.
Nick Paster of American Saferoom Door builds panic rooms, but he’s tight-lipped about the number of rooms installed in a year, saying only that he has “enough business to keep us busy full time.”
“We do see it fluctuate, depending on what’s going on in the world,” Paster said.
Clients reach out to him for a variety of reasons, and with the phenomenon of workplace shootings, businesses are also installing safe rooms. Security experts say it’s just good common sense to have a room inside a home where a family can hide in the event of a break-in.
Although Paster declined to say whether he’s received more inquiries since the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, safe rooms have been in higher demand since Sept. 11, 2001.
Orders can range from a $20,000 custom-built safe door to a fully equipped safe room costing several hundred thousand dollars, he said.
“It depends on what the client wants,” Paster said. “Some people only want a safe door, and we have some that are $10,000 to $20,000. Or they might want cellphone access, electronic surveillance—we custom-build to their specifications. It’s pretty much a full-scale solution.” His grandfather, Frank Paster, a World War II veteran, founded Los Angeles-based Paster Construction in 1948, building homes for the rich and famous of Hollywood and Beverly Hills.
His sons and grandsons continued the construction business and in 1981 turned to the panicroom business.
Unlike tornado and hurricane safe rooms and the bomb shelters of the Cold War era, a modern safe room is designed to meet a variety of client needs.
“We’ll even incorporate the local police response time” to calibrate automatic locks, Paster said.
It’s not only celebrities and titans of industry who are installing safe rooms. Clients include many across the U.S. who build the fortified rooms to protect themselves from natural disasters. According to news reports, sales of safe rooms often spike after tornadoes and hurricanes, which was the case after deadly storms in Texas and Oklahoma in 2013.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency devotes a section of its website to safe rooms to be used in case of extreme weather. The site includes building guidelines. The federal agency offers funding for safe rooms through Community Housing and Development block grants and other programs.
FEMA says a safe room should “provide near-absolute protection in extreme weather events.”
Regardless of how elaborate they are, safe rooms are built for one specific purpose: providing a way to keep out of harm’s way until help arrives.
“A safe room is not a bunker,” Paster said. “It’s to keep you safe for a limited period of time until the cops respond.”
