WEEKLY  NEWSLETTER

THIS ISSUE: An agreement between Republicans staffers and lobbyist group would double the number of H-2B guest worker visas available

 FRI,  NOV 30th

This week it was reported that Congressional Republicans were working on legislation that would permanently double the number of H-2B guest worker visas given out each year, from 66,000 to 132,000. These visas are used by employers to bring in foreign workers to take jobs in landscaping, food service, meat processing, hospitality services, janitorial and housekeeping work, and other lower-skilled, non-agricultural occupations. 

As reported in the Breitbart story included in this newsletter, Republican Members of Congress “have cut a deal with the business lobby to allow businesses to import as many foreign workers — instead of hiring blue-collar Americans — so long as they meet certain requirements.” 

This agreement to displace more American workers comes at the same time the Department of Labor announced that unemployment claims had been climbing for the last three weeks of November, a troubling sign heading into the Christmas hiring season. It is also an unprecedented move. 

The The Washington Times reported that there was a Memorandum of Understanding between staffers for Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC), Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SC), and Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) with a lobbying group named the H-2B Workforce Coalition and the Seasonal Employment Alliance. This MOU purportedly is an agreement to double H-2B visas in exchange for businesses using E-Verify to check new hires, and, over a period of years, check hires as far back as 2012. However, any unauthorized worker on the payroll could be replaced with an H-2B worker without that additional guest worker counting against the cap. Perversely, this may allow some employers to replace illegal alien employees, who may be making more money and may leave to take a job with another employee, with a legal guest worker who earns less and is tied to a specific employer. 

Commenting on the MOU, NumbersUSA Deputy Director Chris Chmielenski told the The Washington Times: 

I don’t ever recall seeing a formal agreement between Congressional staff and employers to draft legislation to increase employers’ access to cheap, foreign labor….Donald Trump won the White House by running on a pro-American-worker immigration message, but his party lost control of the House during the midterms by abandoning that message. This agreement is evidence that Republicans haven’t learned from their recent election losses.  

NumbersUSA Director of Government Relations told Breitbart: 

In 28 years of working in Washington, I have never seen congressional staffers sign an agreement with lobbying organizations to produce special-interest legislation that directly benefits those lobbying groups….I’m sure their constituents would love to hear them explain why they are so eager to help employers keep wages down for lower-skilled American workers.

With wages stagnant for working Americans and more than 40 million Americans out of work, Congress should not be trying to make things worse. 

Take Action: Tell your Member of Congress NOT to allow an increase in H-2B guest workers.

Broward SOE Snipes, rescinds resignation, lawyers up, will ‘fight to very end’ after Gov Scott suspended her

Broward SOE Snipes, rescinds resignation, lawyers up, will ‘fight to very end’ after Gov Scott suspended her

December 2, 2018 | Vivek Saxena | Print Article
SHARE2.3KTWEET47EMAIL
Broward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes has returned.
In a stunning announcement Saturday, the scandal-prone Democrat official rescinded her scheduled Jan. 4 resignation and vowed to remain at her post for however long is necessary to defend herself.    Why? To battle Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who had responded to her unexpected resignation by suspending her over her “multiple violations of Florida law, incompetence and neglect of duty.”
“After a series of inexcusable actions, it’s clear that there needs to be an immediate change in Broward County and taxpayers should no longer be burdened by paying a salary for a supervisor of elections who has already announced resignation,” he said in a statement last Friday.   The Florida governor appointed Peter Antonacci, an attorney who serves as the head of a local economic development agency, to serve in Snipes’ abandoned post until a replacement is assigned.
A day after Scott’s announcement, Snipes and her attorney responded by holding a press conference to rescind her upcoming resignation and announce she’ll be “fighting this to the very end.”   “We believe these actions are malicious, we believe that the allegations that are set forth in the governor’s executive order are done for the purposes of embarrassing Dr. Snipes — embarrassing her and tarnishing her record, and we will be fighting this,” attorney Burnadette Norris-Weeks said.
“In addition to that, Dr. Snipes hereby rescinds her resignation that was set forth which would have been effective on the fourth of January.”
According to Norris-Weeks, Snipes’ motivation for rescinding her resignation are twofold: She’s worried her replacement will corrupt the elections process, and she wants to protect her reputation.  “Norris-Weeks expressed concern that the appointment of Antonacci was being done in order to push ahead with questionable actions ahead of the next presidential election,” the Sun-Sentinel reported.
Whereas Snipes’ history is littered with examples of incompetence, malfeasance and outright corruption, Antonacci’s record is one of excellence and justice.
“In private practice, Pete has represented public- and private-sector clients. He volunteered his time and talents by serving two terms on Florida’s Ethics Commission and on federal and state judicial nominating commissions,” retired Leon County Judge Tim Harley wrote about him three years ago.  “He served four years on the North Florida Water Management District Board where he used knowledge gained from his earning a master’s degree at Florida State’s Department of Urban and Regional Planning. In 2012, he left his law firm to serve as state attorney for Palm Beach County, managing 350 employees.”
Some suspect the real reason for Snipes’ sudden reversal is that she wants to protect the $71,000 she had been slated to receive as an annual pension as per her time in the elections office.

Former President George H.W. Bush, who spent a lifetime in public service and as the nation’s leader scored a decisive victory over Saddam Hussein but battled a faltering economy, died Friday at age 94.
Family spokesman Jim McGrath said Bush died shortly after 10 p.m. Friday, about eight months after the death of his wife, Barbara Bush.

He is survived by five children, including former President George W. Bush and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. A sixth child died in early childhood. The late former president also is survived by 17 grandchildren.
Former President George W. Bush issued the following statement upon his father’s death:
“Jeb, Neil, Marvin, Doro, and I are saddened to announce that after 94 remarkable years, our dear Dad has died. George H.W. Bush was a man of the highest character and the best dad a son or daughter could ask for. The entire Bush family is deeply grateful for 41’s life and love, for the compassion of those who have cared and prayed for Dad, and for the condolences of our friends and fellow citizens.”
President Trump, who is in Argentina attending the G-20 summit, also issued a statement on behalf of himself and first lady Melania Trump. It read in part:
“Melania and I join with a grieving Nation to mourn the loss of former President George H.W. Bush, who passed away last night.
“Through his essential authenticity, disarming wit, and unwavering commitment to faith, family, and country, President Bush inspired generations of his fellow Americans to public service — to be, in his words, “a thousand points of light” illuminating the greatness, hope, and opportunity of America to the world.”
George H.W. Bush was known for his gentlemanly demeanor, dedication to traditional American values, willingness to take on foreign despots like Iraq’s Hussein and Panama’s Manuel Noriega, and presiding over the breakup of the Soviet Union.
In childhood, he was nicknamed “have half” for his generosity in offering other youngsters half of whatever he had. After leaving office, he was often referred to as “41” – shorthand for his status as America’s 41st president and to distinguish him from his son and fellow president, George W., who was known as “43.”
George Herbert Walker Bush was born June 12, 1924 in Milton, Mass., the son of Dorothy Walker Bush and Prescott Bush, a banker who later became a Republican senator from Connecticut. The family, which included four sons and one daughter, was wealthy and politically active.
Bush attended Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass. and after graduating on his 18th birthday, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy. He was commissioned that same year, becoming the youngest pilot in the Navy, and flew 58 combat missions in the Pacific. In 1944, he was hit by anti-aircraft fire 600 miles south of Japan but managed to bail out, and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and three Air Medals.

THIS IS GREAT CONSULT WITH A FAR LEFT ORGANIZATION ON WHAT IS CONSIDERED HATE SPEECH, REALLY!tIME FOR THESE OUTFITS TO BE BROUGHT UNDER CONSTITUTIONAL CONTROL BY THE FED!

EXCLUSIVE: FACEBOOK, AMAZON, GOOGLE
AND TWITTER ALL WORK WITH LEFT-WING
SPLC

  • The Southern Poverty Law Center helps Facebook, Amazon, Google and Twitter determine what organizations are “hate groups”
  • Amazon gave the SPLC the most direct authority while pretending to remain unbiased
  • The SPLC has been plagued by inaccuracies
Four of the world’s biggest tech platforms have working partnerships with a left-wing nonprofit that has a track record of inaccuracies and routinely labels conservative organizations as “hate groups.”   Facebook, Amazon, Google and Twitter all work with or consult the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in policing their platforms for “hate speech” or “hate groups,” a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found.
The SPLC is on a list of “external experts and organizations” that Facebook works with “to inform our hate speech policies,” Facebook spokeswoman Ruchika Budhraja told TheDCNF in an interview.   Facebook consults the outside organizations when developing changes to hate speech policies, Budhraja said, noting that Facebook representatives will typically hold between one and three meetings with the groups.
Citing privacy concerns, the Facebook spokeswoman declined to name all the outside groups working with Facebook, but confirmed the SPLC’s participation.
Budhraja emphasized that Facebook’s definition of “hate group” is distinct from the SPLC’s definition and said that Facebook consults with groups across the political spectrum.   The SPLC accused Facebook in a May 8 article of not doing enough to censor “anti-Muslim hate” on the platform. That article did not disclose the SPLC’s working partnership with Facebook.
“We have our own process and our processes are different and I think that’s why we get the criticism [from the SPLC], because organizations that are hate organizations by their standards don’t match ours,” Budhraja said.   “That doesn’t mean that we don’t have a process in place, and that definitely doesn’t mean we want the platform to be a place for hate but we aren’t going to map to the SPLC’s list or process,” she said.
Of the four companies, Amazon gives the SPLC the most direct authority over its platform, TheDCNF found.
While Facebook emphasizes its independence from the SPLC, Amazon does the opposite: Jeff Bezos’ company grants the SPLC broad policing power over the Amazon Smile charitable program, while claiming to remain unbiased.   “We remove organizations that the SPLC deems as ineligible,” an Amazon spokeswoman told The DCNF.
Amazon grants the SPLC that power “because we don’t want to be biased whatsoever,” said the spokeswoman, who could not say whether Amazon considers the SPLC to be unbiased.   The Smile program allows customers to identify a charity to receive 0.5 percent of the proceeds from their purchases on Amazon. Customers have given more than $8 million to charities through the program since 2013, according to Amazon.
Only one participant in the program, the SPLC, gets to determine which other groups are allowed to join it.
Christian legal groups like the Alliance Defending Freedom — which recently successfully represented a Christian baker at the Supreme Court — are barred from the Amazon Smile program, while openly anti-Semitic groups remain, TheDCNF found in May. (RELATED: Christian Baker Prevails At Supreme Court In Same-Sex Wedding Cake Dispute)

BUMPSTOCKS NOW ILLEGAL TO OWN!

Report: President Trump Signing Bump Stock
Ban, Citizens Have 90 Days to Turn Them In

Semiautomatic rifle

President Donald Trump is expected to announce that he will be signing a ban on bump stocks that gives Americans 90 days to hand them over or otherwise dispose of them.  Bump stocks were used during the October 1, 2017, Las Vegas attack. That attack marked the first time that bump stocks were known to have been used in a crime.   The ATF circulated language to ban bump stocks at Trump’s direction in December 2017. The public was allowed to comment and gun control outlet The Trace reported that 85 percent of those who commented opposed a ban.
CNN reports that Trump is now preparing to sign the ban and it will outlaw the firearm accessories without a grandfathering option. CNN quotes a source that indicates “members of the public will be given 90 days to turn in or otherwise discard their bump stocks.”
ATF Acting Director Thomas Brandon told the U.S. Senate he anticipates a legal challenge against the ban and acknowledged that that challenge could slow the ban’s implementation.

Ami Horowitz: The Truth Behind the Caravan

Ami Horowitz: The Truth Behind
the  Caravan

We’ve been hearing all kinds of contradictory stories about the massive migrant caravan steadily making its way north across Mexico to the U.S. border, but what’s it really like on the ground?
Conservative filmmaker Ami Horowitz decided to see for himself and brought his camera crew so others could get a glimpse at “the truth behind the caravan.”
“The caravan is a giant group of people that emanated, for the most part, in Honduras and are heading up to the U.S.,” Horowitz explains. “A lot has been said about this caravan, so I decided to go down, check it out for myself, and figure out what is the reality versus the fiction.”
“And it’s clearly costing someone millions of dollars for transportation, food, water, medicine and services that are being provided for members of the caravan.”

HUGE Scandal Erupts Exposing Chuck Schumer Closet Full Of Skeletons – SLEAZY SCHUMER!

American Patriot  Published on Nov 24, 2018

PETITION – The proposed United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) currently includes a provision advancing the radical LGBT agenda by elevating “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to a protected class

Stop the USMCA from containing a radical LGBT provision!

The proposed United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) currently includes a provision advancing the radical LGBT agenda by elevating “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to a protected class that is inconsistent with many existing laws, precedent, and religious liberty and conscience rights.
President Trump, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are expected to sign the agreement on November 30th at the next G-20 summit in Argentina.
We are calling on President Trump and members of Congress to remove the language enacting a radical social policy by elevating “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to a protected status as part of the agreement.

Our petition states:

To: President Donald Trump and Members of Congress
We, the undersigned, urge you to remove language contained within the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) that elevates “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to a protected class that is inconsistent with existing law, legal precedent and the Trump administration’s prior policies.  We agree with the 38 members of Congress, whose letter to President Trump states:
“A trade agreement is no place for the adoption of social policy… As a sovereign nation, the United States has the right to decide when, whether and how to tackle issues of civil rights, protected classes and workplace rights.   We urge you to remove the controversial language before advancing the USMCA! These provisions are a Trojan Horse that could be used like a wrecking ball against federal and state laws to advance an LGBT agenda.
