Globalist Panic That Trump Might Cut Tech Foreign Workers
By Joe Guzzardi
Time is short to the (June 22) expiration of President Trump’s Executive Order that suspended some immigration, and expansionists are pulling out all the stops. At stake is employment-based visas’ short-term future, specifically whether the White House will permit this year’s annual 85,000 allotment of foreign-born H-1B workers to enter.
A recent Forbes story written by immigration advocate Stuart Anderson claims that since the tech sector unemployment rate is low and declining – 2.8 percent in April versus 3 percent in January – the Trump administration would be remiss to include the employment-based H-1B visa as part of a suspension strategy. To make his point, Anderson selectively chose data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Current Population Survey that supports his perspective.
But the bigger picture that Anderson ignored is the most important one. Employment statistics vary from month to month; employers lay off U.S. tech workers, but retain cheaper imported workers. But the addition of 85,000 H-1B visa holders will represent a permanent fixture in the labor market, because the H-1B is a dual-intent visa, meaning that holders can enter the U.S. on temporary status while simultaneously seeking lawful permanent residency. In other words, the new H-1B visa holders aren’t going home.
If tech employers are truly stretched thin, as they allege, their first consideration should be to tap into the hundreds of thousands of U.S. workers that H-1B visa holders have, over the last three decades, displaced. The list of corporations that use the H-1B visa to exile U.S. workers to the sidelines, after forcing those fired Americans to train their foreign-born replacements, is longer than Wilt Chamberlain’s arm. Among them are nationally known names like Disney, Apple, Facebook, Starbucks, Uber and Walmart.
A newcomer to the list is the Tennessee Valley Authority which announced earlier this month that it would outsource 20 percent of its highly skilled, American-born technology workforce to Capgemini, CGI and Accenture, companies headquartered in France, Canada and Ireland, respectively.
At least 120 workers learned they will lose their jobs later this summer, and the TVA informed the Engineering Association/Local 1937 that eventually another 100 jobs will be outsourced. Last month, affected workers were advised that they too would be required to train their replacements, a procedure deceptively labeled “knowledge transfer.” The TVA is a federally owned corporate agency originally designed to bring jobs to the impoverished Tennessee Valley during the Great Depression. Although TVA employees are unionized, they still can’t escape the foreign worker displacement scourge. Similar public utility displacement programs played out in California when Southern California Edison and Pacific Gas and Electric fired their U.S. tech workers and either outsourced their jobs or imported H-1B workers.
Originally, Congress created the H-1B visa program to complement the U.S. workforce. Instead, loopholes encourage abuses, pave the way for employers to bump Americans and deny opportunities to recent college graduates. Moreover, a relatively new displacement vehicle that creates roadblocks for young Americans is the never-congressionally approved Optional Practical Training Program. Initiated by the Bush 43 administration, and kept through President Trump’s three-plus White House years, OPT allows a maximum three years of employment to alien U.S. college graduates with degrees in science, technology, engineering and math. OPT provides generous tax subsidies to employers and has mushroomed into a huge foreign-born worker bonanza. More than 1.5 million OPT STEM workershold jobs that should go to Americans.
Despite what elitists, globalists, immigration lobbyists and the American Immigration Lawyers Association claim with their misleading reports and cherry-picked statistics, no intellectually sound argument that favors more H-1B visas, or more of any employment-based visas, can be made.
The ball is in President Trump’s court. He can either fulfill his 2016 campaign promise to “forever end” the H-1B visa or allow himself to be ridden roughshod over by anti-American worker advocates that include his son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner. Last year, more than 900,000 new temporary work visas were issued, and more than 1.8 million work permits were granted or renewed. That’s a total of 2.7 million overseas workers entering an economy that today has more than 36 million unemployed. Among those 2.7 million were nearly 190,000 in the professional category, mostly H-1Bs. They joined approximately 500,000 settled H-1B workers.
American workers always deserve to come ahead of imported labor. Today, with the nation in the grip of the most painful economy since Herbert Hoover’s presidency, American employment must be the nation’s top priority.

Globalist Panic That Trump Might Cut Tech Foreign Workers
GM Installing Google Starting 2021 — Motorists will soon be able to count on a Silicon Valley big brother to watch them as they drive. Google is putting its apps into the touch-screen displays of General Motors cars starting in 2021.
Drivers will be able to access Google Maps; the voice-activated assistant; Google Play app store, and a multimedia multimedia app directly from the dashboard.
8chan Watkins Posobiec Interview — 8chan owner Jim Watkins, yesterday, Sept. 6, told OANN’s Jack Posobiec that his feared free speech site will soon be back and that he will continue his policy of not proactively censoring speech. It would be unAmerican to do otherwise he said.
8chan was forced off the web, Aug. 5, after the mass shootings two days earlier in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. Big tech web security firm Cloudflare killed 8chan as a client after they accused it of inspiring the shootings by allowing the posting of a manifesto by El Paso killer Patrick Crusius.
Watkins has pointedly noted that Crusius had posted his screed on mainstream Instagram and that it was someone else who put it up on 8chan as others did on other boards.
It’s the epitome of irony that 8chan is being attacked by the establishment as a “hate site”.
Watkins testified before the House Homeland Security Committee, Sept. 5, in a closed-door session. Watkins told Posobiec that he described his site, and explained that it wasn’t funded by any foreign governments. He said he never worked with a foreign intelligence agency. He noted that Russia has blocked access to 8chan.
Watkins said he cooperates with U.S. law enforcement agencies and that, in fact, Congress and the executive branch should seek input from tech companies to make it easier to do so.
In the latest chapter of depravities of the rich and progressive, we learn that Android co-founder Andy Rubin’s ex-wife Rie Hirabaru Rubin is seeking to annul a pre-nuptial agreement she signed before their 2009 marriage on the grounds that Andy was running a sex ring during their marriage among other things.
Andy allegedly paid women hundreds of thousands of dollars to be “owned” by him. Among their tasks were servicing other men so that Andy could either watch or join in for threesomes.
Andy was also a top dog at Google until he was forced to flee with a $90 million comp package in 2014 after a female co-worker accused him of forcing her to perform on him oral sex in a hotel room.
That’s sodomy, by the way, and yes it is a crime. Guess being a Google exec gives you a $90 million get-out-of-jail free card.
Android is the best selling OS for smart phones. These guys are our moral arbiters or are at least trying to be.
Deleting Alexa Commands — It’s being claimed that there is a new voice command that allows you to delete the directions you’ve given Amazon Alexa. Simply say “Alexa, delete everything I said today.” Apparently it only works for a partial day though.
Frankly, we don’t trust anything claimed for Sleepless in Seattle.
Princeton IoT Inspector Monitors Alexa While She Monitors You — Alexa, who is listening in? Good luck with getting an answer. Actually, she’ll refrence a 1979 song by the Northern Irish group The Undertones.
If you wish to learn who is monitoring your life while you think Seattle’s Mata Hari is sound asleep, check out the Princeton IoT Inspector from Princeton University.
Princeton describes the Inspector as an open-source desktop tool with a one-click install process that lets you automatically discovers IoT devices and analyzes their network traffic and helps you identify security and privacy issues with graphs and tables
Goolag Archipelago For Patrick Moore — Patrick Moore’s environmentalist creds are beyond dispute.
Moore, a Canadian with a Ph.d in forestry, was with Greenpeace at the start. He was president of Greenpeace Foundation in the late 1970s and largely responsible for reorganizing it as Greenpeace International during a time of controversy, crisis and debt.
He is considered one of the founders of the group.
Or had been anyway.
On March 2, Moore blistered “The New Green Deal” plan broached by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the feckless and extremely stupid new congresswoman from New York’s 14th District, calling her a “pompous little twit” and pointing out her bizarre fantasy would bring about “mass death”.
He doubled down a week or so later on Fox & Friends adding that “The whole climate crisis is not only Fake News, it’s Fake Science. There is no climate crisis, there’s weather and climate all around the world, and in fact carbon dioxide is the main building block of all life.”
Anyway, Moore noticed on March 16 that his photo which had long appeared in Google searches for”Who are the founders of Greenpeace” had been removed.
It had been there two days earlier.
Google’s action was something Moore had expected as he had saved screenshots, which are included below.
Moore did not seem particularly upset with the loss of credit but was alarmed at the implications of “Tech Tyranny.”
As all who love freedom should be.
The wannabe kings and queens of Silicon Valley and Wall Street have no problem disappearing someone who is an impediment to their vision of a harshly regulated progressive paradise.
We suspect they’d have no problem forcing them from their job, stealing their home and even stealing their life if they should feel they could get away with it.
Google is a treasonous enemy. It should be broken up — at the least — as Standard Oil was in 1911. There is no reason for the largest search engine, the largest internet video service (YouTube),the largest mobile operating system (Android) and the most used browser (Chrome) to be under the same roof.
