Amnesty Always Solution for Zealots

Amnesty Always Solution for Zealots

By Joe Guzzardi

Soon after 9/11, immigration activists began a full-scale lobbying effort to encourage Congress to pass an illegal alien amnesty. Their stance was that if illegal aliens received lawful permanent residency, then they would, in the advocates’ terminology, “come out of the shadows.” In the end, the narrative continued, newly legalized aliens would become citizens, embrace the American way, and those that once harbored ill-will against the United States, like the 9/11 terrorists, would eventually assimilate.

Amnesty just months after 9/11 was, on its face, an impossible-to-sell idea, mainly because most of the 9/11 perpetrators were not “in the shadows,” but legally present. In his report, “The Open Door: How Militant Islamic Terrorists Entered the United States, 1993-2001,” Steven A. Camarota found that at the time they committed their crimes, 16 terrorists of the 48 total involved, directly or indirectly, were on temporary visas, mostly tourist visas; 17 were Lawful Permanent Residents or naturalized U.S. citizens, and 12 were illegal aliens.

But amnesty is like the proverbial cork; right after it’s submerged into water, the cork pops back up. In the more than two decades since 9/11, amnesties large and small have been defeated, but swiftly reappeared in other bills. Some amnesties have been introduced in Congress, and were significant in their scope: the 2005 McCain-Kennedy bill and the 2013 Gang of Eight bill. Although heavily promoted as bipartisan and reformative, both nevertheless died in Congress. The most recent amnesty effort wasn’t as straightforward as the previous two. Although amnesty wasn’t advertised as its primary feature, Build Back Better still would have granted the biggest mass pardon in history, about 6.5 million aliens, and would cost taxpayers about $111 billion.

For today, BBB in its massive fiscal totality is stalled. Without missing a beat, however, the amnesty-or-bust crowd is back to work with another far-fetched angle that it should be embarrassed to advance. Their proposed solution to stall raging inflation: press on with BBB’s amnesty via a parole provision that would grant work authorization to illegal immigrants. Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) tweeted that “a comprehensive immigration reform bill,” code words for amnesty, “would help cut inflation.” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who has spent his 30-plus years in Congress voting “yea” for the majority of the immigration expansion bills put before him, agrees. When reporters asked Durbin to share his thoughts about the new amnesty pitch, the Senate Judiciary Chair said: “Oh, most certainly … If there are more workers filling those jobs, it’s deflationary.”

Clemson University energy and sustainability professor Mark Thies wrote a Newsweek opinion piece titled “The Democrats Plan to Fix Inflation: Squeeze Blue-Collar Americans” that chronicled the multiple fallacies in Democrats’ talking points, reiterated year after year but never proven, that immigration benefits Americans. This time around, Democrats illogically argue that more immigration and amnesty will help curb the 40-year high inflation rate that’s crippling the middle class. While it’s true that importing more foreign workers who will become U.S. consumers grows the economy and increases GDP, it’s equally true and much more consequential that more foreign-born consumers don’t increase per-capita GDP. Fundamental economic theory proves that the overwhelming majority of immigration-driven increases in economic activity goes to the immigrants themselves in the form of wages and other compensation. Immigration doesn’t benefit the native-born population.

Should the Democrats’ amnesty vision come true, every paroled or amnestied immigrant will receive lifetime valid work authorization that will enable him to compete with or displace an American worker. If BBB provides millions more work-authorized immigrants, then also add the 1 million lawful permanent residents who arrive annually, the roughly 750,000 temporary guest workers, the asylum and refugee arrivals, and the conclusion is that the U.S. has an immigrant labor overage at a time when millions of Americans are unemployed or underemployed. Not yet considered are last year’s 2 million illegal immigrant border surgers who will stay in the U.S. permanently, and will eventually get employment authorization or, alternatively, enter the underground economy. More cheap labor is a constant threat to working Americans’ job security, inconsequential to congressional Democrats.

Independent and undecided voters wonder what’s happened to the traditional Democratic Party that once prided itself as working Americans’ staunchest ally. The Democratic Party of old is long gone, and today is willfully determined to undermine U.S. citizens’ economic best interests in order to advance the elite donor class. With the 2022 mid-term elections less than nine months away, analysts wonder whether Democrats will shift to the middle to woo the swing voters they’ll need in order to keep their congressional majority. So far, no indication has surfaced that a course change is in the immediate future. So that all Americans may prosper, the U.S. needs Democrats of the mindset from an earlier era to return to the fold. As President Theodore Roosevelt often said, if federal policies don’t work for everyone, they don’t work for anyone.

Val DiGiorgio Is Back And Backing Jessica Florio

Val DiGiorgio Is Back And Backing Jessica Florio — That wasn’t that long, was it? Val DiGiorgio, the former Pennsylvania GOP chairman and epitome of a political hack, is back and backing Jessica Florio for the 44th District State Senate Seat.

He and his entourage of usual suspects are sponsoring a dinner for her, March 9, at Anthony’s Cucina Fresca in Downingtown.

Prices range from $50 to $1,000 per plate.

The 44th District is represented by Democrat Katie J. Muth and includes much of northern Chester County along with parts of Montgomery and Berks counties.

If Ms. Florio has a primary opponent vote for that person on May 17. If she should end up being the nominee, vote for the Democrat.

Sorry Jessica, a kiss from Val is the kiss of death.

Better the snake be outside the tent than in. The times are changing. See yesterday’s story.

Elite Capture Chinese Strategy Counts On Treason

Elite Capture Chinese Strategy Counts On TreasonPeter Schweizer, a journalist with a solid track record, describes on GatestoneInstitute.org how the Chinese are counting on the corrupt in America to defeat us.

He describes it as “elite capture” or tempting another country’s elite with money, access and favors to move in their interest.

And it is happening.

This is a warning to government officials in whatever category and party leaders of whatever size, that it is no longer politics as usual. No longer can they feel that a compromise does no harm. No longer can they shrug their shoulders when they see evil before them and feel it will all sort out in the end.

They have to speak up and shout out and not care if the captured establishment media should attack. They have to be able to walk away from perks and wealth and put what’s right first, even if they have never done so in the past.

They will be literally damned if they don’t. It’s their children’s — everybody children’s — future at stake.

And in a related matter, Naomi Wolf describes on Substack how Canada has literally become a dictatorship:

Parliamentarians in Canada do not seem to understand that now their former colleague, Justin Trudeau, can arrest not just truckers, whose lawful protest has been declared illegal, but also the Parliamentarians themselves. This is, sadly, the next step in this kind of drama, historically. It is an extraordinarily dangerous sign that Parliament is not seated. When the Australian Parliament was suspended, by the time they reconvened, their powers had been dramatically curtailed. Tyrants seek to normalize the convening of Parliaments as “optional” or to suspend normal Parliamentary processes long enough to hollow out a legislative body’s deliberative powers, and to ensure that when and if a Parliament (or a Congress, for that matter) meets again, it will be merely a ceremonial assembly.

Parliamentarians in Canada also do not seem to understand that “dictator” is no longer rhetorical,” she says. “A member of Parliament was shushed when he cried out this epithet, but the fact is that this is not a slur at this point. Justin Trudeau is by definition now in fact a dictator.

Glen Greenwald is saying it is happening in the United States.

Dissent from orthodoxies is censored. Protests against the state are outlawed. Dissenters are harshly punished with no due process. Long prison terms are doled out for political transgressions rather than crimes of violence. Journalists are treated as criminals and spies. Opposition to the policies of political leaders are recast as crimes against the state.

Remember, the greatest power is the power to say no. If your bank starts acting weird pull your money out. Turn off corporate entertainment. Avoid products made by Chinese slaves especially if they aren’t necessary like branded sportswear.

Get Google out of your life.

Get active at politics at whatever level. Give grief to your committeepeople. If you are uncomfortable about voicing opinions, fine, but never be afraid of asking questions and expressing dissatisfaction with non-answers.

Remember to vote.

God wins in the end. Stick with Him.

Brunel Hanged Like Epstein But In A Paris Prison

Brunel Hanged Like Epstein But In A Paris Prison — Jean-Luc Brunel, the French fashion power whose MC2 Model Management agency was funded by Jeffrey Epstein, was found hanged in his Paris prison cell, last night, Feb. 18.

Brunel was facing charges of rape and sexual assault, and was being investigated for human trafficking.

The late Jean-Luc Brunel

His victims included three 12-year-old sisters and Virginia Giuffre, who just four days ago (Feb. 15) settled a sex abuse lawsuit with Prince Andrew for a reported $12 million.

What a crazy coincidence that Brunel would die the same way Epstein did.

Actually, it’s not such a coincidence and don’t expect us to buy that they were suicides.

Something real sick is going on in the world.

We think — and hope and pray — that there are good wizards fighting the warlocks.

Whatever did happen to Ray Gricar anyway?

Watch your neck, Peter Nygard.
