Union head: America was never Eurocentric

Published

on

President Trump’s “image” of the United States was boldly challenged by a state leader of a service workers’ union, in the wake of Trump’s support of a newly-revised Senate bill to slash legal immigration by half and condition most of the remainder on merit.

The Senate bill (S. 354, commonly called the “RAISE Act”) would cut legal immigration from 1,000,000 to 500,000 annually and priority worker skills over family ties in an apparent attempt to halt the chain migration where new citizens and permanent residents (“green card” holders) get to sponsor numerous family members for their admission to the country.

In response, Kevin Brown, the Vice President and New Jersey director of 32 BJ SEIU (Service Employees International Union) which calls itself the largest property services workers’ union in the country, said:

This proposal is a thinly-veiled attempt at remaking the United States in an image that never was. (Emphasis added.)

So, in other words, goes the union claim, the United States never considered worker skills or merit — that is, their ability to contribute to the country, rather than extract benefits and be net dependents on the populace — in deciding who got in. This has been opposed for years, on the stated ground that such standards unfairly advantaged the higher-educated immigrants from the same industrialized, Western European nations from which many prior waves of immigrants historically emigrated.

Left unsaid: That imposing any standards for immigration, let alone standards for achievement, were never practiced in the past, or were practiced unfairly, or were just plain wrong and immoral.

That a European, Western Civilization-based American society is not only undesirable, but that it never existed!

So now we have the unions for some of the most unskilled (and thus the most easily replaceable) workers in the country fighting for what amounts to open borders. Of course, we’re talking about votes here. Because some of these workers are actually citizens, and as to the ones who aren’t — well, let’s not go there because that Kris Kobach-led voter fraud commission is a racist sham, isn’t it?

In a cultural war where anything associated with European roots, Christian theology and capitalist economic theory is blatantly considered evil and hence ripe for any and all attacks, the battleground on America’s immigration policy history represents a new effort to undermine any restrictions.

The reality? The radical constituencies and interest groups which have overrun today’s Democratic Party will gladly discriminate against any immigrants with actual achievement and skills, in favor of people from cultures most dissimilar to the United States and with the least likelihood of contributing to or assimilating into American society.

LeVar Burton is being attacked by people thinking he’s LaVar Ball. Brent Spiner’s response is hilarious.

LeVar Burton is being attacked by people thinking hes LaVar Ball Brent Spiners response is hilarious

LaVar Ball wasn’t impressed with President Trump’s efforts to get his son released from a Chinese prison for shoplifting. His reactions have prompted many Trump supporters to go after him as ungracious, hypocritical, and much worse.

Unfortunately, many of these attacks are being directed towards actor LeVar Burton. The Reading Rainbow host who rose to prominence after Roots and solidified his status as a Hollywood icon while playing Geordi La Forge on Star Trek: The Next Generation has a name similar to Ball’s and is also black. Responses to the attacks from other Twitter users has been brutal, but Burton has remained calm. His lone response:

Former colleague Brent Spiner, who played Data on ST:TNG, offered some advice to his friend.

“If you cared about our President, you’d change your name.”

I don’t normally applaud when leftist Hollywood gets political, but this one was too good to pass.

Michael Flynn’s lawyers break contact with White House lawyers

Michael Flynns lawyers break contact with White House lawyers

The legal team for former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn have stopped sharing information about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian tampering in the 2016 election. This could be a blow for the President and some who are close to him if information gleaned from Flynn points to the Trump campaign, his transition team, or his administration itself.

The NY Times is reporting that four anonymous sources have said the agreement between the two legal teams has been ended from Flynn’s side. It is normal for teams with parallel interests to share information, but when there becomes a conflict of interest, any such sharing is halted. This leaves two likely possibilities: either Flynn is negotiating a deal to cooperate with the investigation or they’re cooperating already.

If it’s the former, there’s a chance the information sharing could be renewed if no deal is struck

Flynn is at the heart of the investigation. It was his actions and the White House’s reactions before and after he resigned that prompted the investigation in the first place. Flynn had lied on more than one occasions about financial interactions he’d had with Russian and Turkish interests. This made him vulnerable to blackmail, according to former acting attorney general Sally Q. Yates. After Flynn resigned, the President had a one-on-one meeting with then-FBI Director James Comey and allegedly asked him to stop pursuing Flynn. Comey was fired by the President, then leaked a memo detailing the meeting regarding Flynn.

Outcry from many in DC and in the media prompted Mueller’s appointment. Since then, he charged Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, and George Papadopoulos. Charging or cutting a deal with Flynn would likely be the step prior to pursuing people directly associated with the President.

http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/361687-flynn-moving-to-cooperate-with-mueller-in-russia-probe-reportThe report comes after NBC News on Wednesday reported that Mueller is looking to question Bijan Kian, an associate of Flynn. Previous reports have suggested that the special counsel already has enough evidence to indict Flynn and his son, who also worked for Trump’s campaign.

Trump’s legal team has insisted recently that Mueller’s probe will end in the coming months, though legal experts have said the investigation is likely to drag on.

After nearly 4 decades of crimes against his people, Robert Mugabe granted immunity, military protection

After nearly 4 decades of crimes against his people Robert Mugabe granted immunity military protecti

In what may be the best deal ever struck by a dictator forcibly removed by the military and despised by a majority of his people, Zimbabwe’s former president Robert Mugabe has been granted full immunity, a “generous pension,” and military protection so he can stay in his country without fear that any of the millions of people he persecuted will be able to seek their vengeance.

Zimbabwe grants Robert Mugabe immunity from prosecution

Mugabe, who ruled Zimbabwe with an iron fist for 37 years, resigned on Tuesday, hours after parliament launched proceedings to impeach him. He had refused to leave office during eight days of uncertainty that began with a military takeover.

Emmerson Mnangagwa, the former vice-president sacked by Mugabe this month, is to be sworn in as president on Friday.

My Take

Despite complaints from the people, this is the smart move. If they allow him to leave, they have no control over him or the influence that he continues to wield at home and abroad. If they jail him, kill him, or otherwise make him face prosecution, he would be at best a distraction and at worst a martyr. This move allows them to move forward the fastest which is what former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his military allies want.
