UK Military Would Run Out of Ammo In One Day of Fighting Russia, Warns General

UK Military Would Run Out of Ammo In One Day of Fighting Russia, Warns General

The British military’s supply of ammunition would run dry in just one day in a direct engagement with Russia as a result of years of spending cuts to the nation’s defence, a former top general has warned.

General Sir Richard Barrons, who formerly served as the Joint Forces chief, claimed that spending cuts have depleted the British military to such an extent that, in a hot war with Russia, the UK would run out of ammunition and artillery shells within just one day.

According to research conducted by The Sun newspaper, the United Kingdom’s ammunition plants would need at least one year to produce the amount of shells currently used by the Ukrainians in their conflict with Russia.

“This is truly shocking. But it is true. And we must fix it,” General Barrons wrote. “The UK spends more on defence than any EU ally and our brave Armed Forces have long been one of Britain’s most influential levers around the world.”

“Yet for decades they have been hollowed out by spending cuts,” he added, saying that the government would need to spend an additional £3 billion per year on the military to fall in line with the top level of the NATO alliance.

The Ministry of Defence, for its part, said that while ammunition levels are “highly classified”, it was boosting spending on ammunition stockpiles to “more than pre-invasion levels” with an extra £560 million earmarked by the Treasury.

The MoD also suggested that judging Britain’s readiness by the current conflict’s standards was disingenuous.

“The war in Ukraine is an example of Soviet doctrine which uses vast quantities of artillery. We do not, nor ever have, used artillery in such methods, so to try and draw such conclusions is misleading,” they claimed.

Meanwhile, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace also said this week that the United Kingdom’s defence apparatus has been “hollowed out and underfunded” — although he neglected to mention who was responsible for this.

“There’s a recognition that as the world gets more dangerous, unstable, defence should continue to get a growing proportion of spend, we can then debate how much that proportion should be,” he said.

In the first seven years after the so-called Conservative Party came into power after 2010, annual defence spending fell by £6.6 billion in real terms — a reduction of 14.6 per cent compared to the 2009-10 budget.

While slashing the military budget, the supposedly right-wing government has poured billions into left-wing projects such green energy and foreign aid, ironically including money for other nations’ militaries.

However, last year the government finally promised to increase military spending, pledging £7 billion in extra funding for the 2024-25 fiscal year, which should see defence spending rise to £51.7 billion.

Despite the apparent lack of military readiness, war hawks in the Conservative Party such as former prime minister Boris Johnson and the head of the House of Commons Defence Select Committee, Tobias Ellwood, have both called this week for Britain to double down on its support for Ukraine, with Mr Johnson calling for the government to send fighter jets to the Ukrainians.

Ellwood, meanwhile, said that Britain should engage “directly” with Russia in Ukraine rather than letting the local fighting force “do all the work”, despite noting that currently the British military is in a “dire” state, with 10,000 fewer troops than necessary.

“It is up to the Treasury and Number 10 to recognise the world is changing — we are now at war in Europe, we need to move to a war footing,” Ellwood said.

Breitbart Business Digest: Market Tells Fed to Drop Dead

Jerome Powell fumbled his first press conference of the year.

Financial conditions have become much easier by almost every metric over the past three months. Equities prices have soared, bond yields have dropped, and mortgage rates are down to the point that homebuilders are sounding optimistic. Financial asset prices imply that the Fed is unlikely to get the federal funds rate above five percent and very likely to cut the benchmark rate later this year.

Powell’s job at Wednesday’s press conference following the Federal Open Market Committee meeting was to deliver a message sufficiently hawkish to discourage this. Modern monetary policy works primarily by influencing financial conditions. When you want the economy to heat up, you use your tools to loosen financial conditions. When you are trying to cool things off, you use your tools to tighten financial conditions. As Powell himself acknowledged on Wednesday, looser financial conditions undermine the Fed’s efforts to bring inflation down to its target.

Powell’s failure was written in the green pixels of the stock tickers on Wednesday. The Nasdaq Composite rose by two percent and the S&P 500 jumped by more than one percent. This violent jolt upward implies that the market is now even more convinced that its view of things will win out over the Fed’s view.

Transitory Disinflation

The principal reason for the loosening of financial conditions is a widespread conviction on Wall Street that inflation will come down much quicker than Fed officials expect and that this disinflation will persuade the Fed to back off from hiking rates above five percent. A secondary reason is the view that the economy is very likely to fall into a recession severe enough to force the Fed to start cutting. So both the optimistic view and pessimistic forecast are seen as supporting higher valuations for financial assets.

Powell was quite insistent that the disinflationists are getting ahead of the facts. He pointed out that while inflation has come down for goods, with several categories even going negative, we have not yet seen the same thing in “core non-housing services.”

“Until we do, we see ourselves as having a lot of work to do,” Powell said. He added that Fed officials expect more persistent inflation in core non-housing services.

The market, however, was not persuaded. Perhaps hearing Powell say the word “disinflation” so many times was enough to convince people that even though the Fed indicated more hikes ahead, the Fed really just has one more before it pauses.

Hitler’s Economic Miracle, Freedom from Debt Slavery

TheUncovering


” If Gentiles refuse to live a life of inferiority, then this signals their rebellion and the unavoidable necessity of Jewish warfare against their very presence” Cf. Mordechai Nisan, Kivumin, Official publication of the World Zionist Organization,August 1984 pp. 151-156.

The National Socialist Movement in Germany and Austria shut down the Rothschild banks, seized their assets and issued new labour notes as currency, backed by labour provided.
The result was the biggest economic miracle turnaround in history as the usurious class and their crippling debt burden were expelled.
Judea declared war on Germany in 1933.

24 major efforts to avoid war with France and UK by the National Socialists were ignored by the British, French, even unofficial backdoor attempts such as leaflet drops on England (“Last appeal to reason” )and the parachuting in of a senior Nazi to talk with powerful Dukes on a peace deal. The final position of the Germans was offering to leave the siezed ethnic German parts of Poland and also offer assistance to the British Empire should it come under challenge.
All to no avail as Churchill was in and the bankers needed their war and got it. Nations leaving the global cabal banking system will never be accepted even if atrocity propaganda is needed to justify the actions carried out in shutting such recalcitrance down.

Sergeant Major

Germans wanted to end the Jewish usury that enslaved the whole world, today more than ever we need this type of brave men which were the National Socialists. The term NAZI was created as a derogatory term by the Jews, because Hitler was Waking Up the World to The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion & The Synagogue of Satan. The Germans were devoted Freedom loving people with National Pride that wanted all other countries to enjoy the same living conditions free from Jewish Communist enslavement. The Germans wanted to cleanse the world from from Rothschild’s Debt Slavery System. Adolf Hitler was the most beloved Freedom Fighter on earth with an approval rating of 99%. The Germans knew that after WW2 there was nothing else if they were to lose the war, the JEW would destroy the entire Free world, and sadly they were correct. This documentary is banned in most countries around the world but thanks to the internet and VPN technology, you no longer have an excuse for being Asleep, Unconscious, and Brainwashed. The only way to stop the Jewish Globalist Communist Cabal with their New World Order agenda is to Awaken to the Truth as quickly as possible and take actions to stop the world-wide Communist enslavement that is in full swing right now. It was the Jews & Rothschild’s that Declared War on Germany and started WW2. Expect lots of thumbs down on this video because we live in a world of braindead Zombies and dumbed down Sheep that are incapable of doing their own research to ever Wake Up. The very fact that 65 to 70% of people on earth lined up for a SUICIDE JAB is Proof in the Pudding. Never forget that Lincoln & JFK both tried to squash the Rothschild Federal Reserve & Central Bank in the USA, and look what happened to both of them.

Kevin McCarthy: Republicans, Biden Can Find ‘Common Ground’ on Debt Ceiling, Spending Cuts

Kevin McCarthy: Republicans, Biden Can Find ‘Common Ground’ on Debt Ceiling, Spending Cuts

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said after a meeting with President Joe Biden that he is optimistic that Democrats and Republicans can find “common ground” on the debt limit and spending.

McCarthy said he and Biden had a “good first meeting,” and they shared their opposing opinions on how to raise the debt limit.

“We promised we would continue the conversation and we’ll see if we can get there. I think that at the end of the day, we can find common ground.” McCarthy said, adding that he and Biden will continue negotiating on potential compromises on the debt ceiling.

“I told the president I would like to see if we can come to an agreement long before the deadline, and we can start working on other things,” he added.

McCarthy also appeared to rule out the idea of putting together a commission to find spending cuts, which some lawmakers have advocated for.

“Nobody needs a commission to tell us … we have spent too much,” the Speaker said.

McCarthy also said, “The greatest threat to America is our debt.”

House Republicans as well as many Senate Republicans have called for structural spending reforms and cuts as part of raising the debt ceiling.

Biden has called for raising the debt ceiling with no spending cuts or reforms.
This remains in stark contrast to 2006, when then-Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) voted against raising the debt ceiling, expressing alarm about the rapid increase in the debt under then-President George W. Bush.

Biden said in a 2006 Senate floor speech:

Facts had changed. His promise to balance the budget, his promise to pay down the debt, were proved to be false. [Emphasis added]

But he refused to take responsibility for his policies. He refused to admit that a changed world demanded a change of course.

His refusal has pushed us deeper and deeper into the hole. His refusal added $450 billion to the debt in 2002; it added $984 billion in 2003; it added $800 billion in 2004. And here we are again today, adding another $781 billion. With that addition, our national debt will be $8.6 trillion at the end of this year.

The President’s budget plans will bring that number to $11.8 trillion at the end of the next 5 years. This is a record of utter disregard for our Nation’s financial future. It is a record of indifference to the price our children and grandchildren will pay to redeem our debt when it comes due. History will not judge this record kindly.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said on Monday, “No hostage-taking, no brinkmanship. Pass the debt ceiling.”

Fed Hikes Benchmark Rate by 25 Basis Points, Signals More Increases to Come

Fed Hikes Benchmark Rate by 25 Basis Points, Signals More Increases to Come

The Federal Reserve continued its campaign to bring down inflation by approving an increase in its benchmark interest rate of one-quarter of a percentage point, saying it anticipates further increases in the future.

Officials agreed Wednesday to lift the federal funds rate to a range between 4.50 percent and 4.75 percent, the highest since 2007.

“The Committee anticipates that ongoing increases in the target range will be appropriate in order to attain a stance of monetary policy that is sufficiently restrictive to return inflation to 2 percent over time,” the Federal Reserve’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) said in a statement.

Investors had expected the 25 basis point raise, the eighth consecutive Fed hike since the Fed began raising its target in March of 2022. At the prior meeting in December, the Fed raised its target range by half a percentage point.

Markets expect the Fed will hike one more time this year at the meeting and then pause to observe how the economy and inflation react to the highest interest rates in over a decade. Fed chair Jerome Powell and other central bank officials have warned the market against interpreting a slowdown in hikes or a pause as preceding an imminent pivot to cutting rates. The prices of various financial assets, however, suggest that investors do anticipate a rate cut before the year is over.

“In determining the extent of future increases in the target range, the Committee will take into account the cumulative tightening of monetary policy, the lags with which monetary policy affects economic activity and inflation, and economic and financial developments,” the FOMC said.

The statement said that the FOMC is “highly attentive to inflation risks,” a phrase the Fed has used since its second hike in May of last year.

The Fed dropped references to the pandemic from this statement, including a line that attributed inflation to “supply and demand imbalances related to the pandemic, higher food and energy prices, and broader price pressures.” The Fed also no longer says it is closely monitoring “public health” when assessing possible changes to monetary policy.

The Fed noted that inflation has improved in recent months.

“Inflation has eased somewhat but remains elevated,” the statement sad.

Something’s Buggin’ Tucker Carlson, Food Production is a National Security Issue

Something’s Buggin’ Tucker Carlson, Food Production is a National Security Issue

This is a topic we have covered extensively, and it is great to see Tucker Carlson questioning the sudden alignment of various elements that are creating a very real food insecurity problem.

The #1 factor in the shortage of food production is the newly emboldened ‘western energy policy‘ and the impact energy has on everything from field (fertilizer) to fork (distribution).  Other factors include government policy that blocks food development (Dutch, Irish and Sri Lanka Farmers), a sudden uptick in food facilities having major fires and damage, and a series of issues with the feed that goes into the production of proteins.

This is all happening as the advancement of insects as a more “sustainable” protein replacement is being advanced by the same western governments.  However, if you happen to notice that all of the issues travel in the same direction, you are a conspiracy theorist, or something.  WATCH:

We have been watching the predictable outcomes surrounding the western government shift to change energy policy for almost two years.  Approximately a year ago we first said, “the absence of food will change things.”

As energy resources like natural gas were curtailed the resulting price increase and subsequent shortage of fertilizer was discussed in great detail well in advance.

Now, we are starting to see exactly what those warning voices were talking about.

An interesting article in ZeroHedge Saturday [SEE HERE] draws attention to how the media can no longer try to ignore the created global food crisis.

ZeroHedge – People on the other side of the planet are dropping dead from starvation right now, but most people don’t even realize that this is happening.  Unfortunately, most people just assume that everything is fine and dandy.  If you are one of those people that believe that everything is just wonderful, I would encourage you to pay close attention to the details that I am about to share with you.  Global hunger is rapidly spreading, and that is because global food supplies have been getting tighter and tighter. 

If current trends continue, we could potentially be facing a nightmare scenario before this calendar year is over. (read more)

The article then goes on to detail the issues and food shortages in Pakistan, India and the entire African continent.  Factually, according to media reports on the region, the worst food crisis in history is happening – yet most U.S. and European Union media are avoiding it.  The famine is happening in almost complete western silence.

Keep in mind, none of this is unexpected.  In fact, the G7 countries discussed the pending problem in mid 2022, yet no one took any steps to avoid it.

Vladimir Putin’s military action against eastern Ukraine had nothing to do with the severe food shortages and inflation in Sri Lanka {link}.  Nor did Russia have any influence over the Dutch government trying to stop food production {link}.  Additionally, Putin had no control over Justin Trudeau’s decision to limit harvest yields by blocking the use of nitrogen-based fertilizer {link}. More importantly, it was not Vladimir Putin who forced all the western politicians to sign up for a new ‘climate friendly’ energy program that is destroying the ability of western farms to generate higher yield crops.

You do not need to be a farmer to understand that nitrogen/phosphorus-based industrial fertilizer has been the reason why farm yields have generated massive amounts of food on a global basis.  The United States, Canada, the U.K. and places like the Netherlands have massively increased their ability to generate food for export, in large part due to the success of improved fertilizer and crop saving modern pesticides.  Take those farming advancements away under the guise of climate change and you get Sri Lanka, Pakistan and now the African Continent.

Those western climate and energy policies create downstream consequences.  The decision to chase a new global energy policy under the name “Build Back Better,” in combination with short-sighted EU sanctions against Russia, and you get food shortages.

It was not Vladimir Putin who told British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz their proactive recommendation to switch from crop-based biofuels to human food would be blocked.  That G7 decision was made by Justin Trudeau and Joe Biden. {link} Even more significantly, it was not Russia who threatened the multinational energy companies about investing in Africa for expanded natural gas supplies for their fertilizer needs. That threat came from the same western government alliance, per their instructions from the World Economic Forum group {link}.

It was predictable {JUNE 21st} {June 30th} and {July 6th} that western government leaders would seek to avoid responsibility for the food crisis they created, and throughout the latter part of 2022 we saw western media trying, desperately, to frame Russia for global food shortages in order to protect western politicians.

I said this in July of last year and as the consequences now surface it is even more critical to understand.

Joe Biden, NATO, the G7, the European Union, the World Bank, USAID, and every western leader in the United States and Europe stated in early and mid 2022 there will be food shortages in 2023.

They did not say there might be shortages; their statements were emphatic, there will be shortages.

Accept this basic cornerstone.  Then ask why not a single proactive step has been taken by any of the aforementioned institutions or governments to alleviate what they declare is a certainty.  Why?

Simple question, “why?”

If all of the western nations, non-govt organizations and heads of state, are aware of a coming food crisis, why is there no proactive response?

It is a question that even the most hardcore leftists will not answer, because there is only one answer.  No action is being taken because they do not want to take action.  No effort to avoid the crisis is being done, because they do not want the crisis avoided.

Peel all the layers of obfuscation and causation away, and what we find is the epicenter of the food shortage is directly the result of the Build Back Better agenda.  A post-pandemic western government deliberate decision to radically change global energy development.  In succinct terms, the climate change agenda.

However, regardless of how you feel about the validity of “climate change,” the cause of diminished food supplies is purposeful.  It is not climate change causing food shortages. It is the purposeful action taken under the guise of mitigating climate change that is causing the shortage of food.

The collective Build Back Better energy policy of western governments’ is the reason for massive increases in energy costs, massive oil price jumps, gasoline price increases, significant increases in chemical costs, increases in diesel fuel costs, shortages of fertilizer created using natural gas, and the end result is lower crop yields, higher farming costs and eventually, food shortages.  They knew this.

All of the organizations and government who have been decrying the future shortage of food, know it is the radical shift in energy resource development that is creating the crisis.  This acceptance of reality begins the framework to understand just how entrenched and committed these western leaders are toward their beloved climate change agenda.

We are only just now beginning to see the first aspects of the food shortage.  However, once the issue becomes unavoidable the western leaders will not and cannot accept the blame for what they have done.  They will blame-cast, excuse and justify what is surfacing.

Food shortages will be blamed on the Ukraine conflict, Russian aggression, climate change and any various iteration of justification that does not identify the true cause, their energy ideology.

I’m not so sure that people fully understand what the entire system of western government would be willing to do to avoid being blamed for avoidable death on a potential scale that is quite alarming.  All of the western leaders, institutions and governments are on the same boat.   They are all in this together.

(June 22, 2022) – (Reuters) – The European Union is divided on how to help poorer nations fight a growing food crisis and address shortages of fertilizers caused by the war in Ukraine, with some fearing a plan to invest in plants in Africa would clash with EU green goals.

The need for food “clashes with EU green goals.”…  Let that sink in.

Priorities!

Nothing to see here comrade, nothing to see….

Biden Touts $1.2 Trillion Infrastructure Spending Spree as He Refuses Debt Ceiling Negotiations

Biden Touts $1.2 Trillion Infrastructure Spending Spree as He Refuses Debt Ceiling Negotiations

President Joe Biden on Monday delivered remarks in Baltimore, Maryland, where he touted a tunnel project being addressed with funds from the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act he signed in 2021. At the same time, he continues to refuse spending cut negotiations with Republican lawmakers over the $31.3 trillion debt ceiling breached on January 19, even though he has admitted Washington politicians need to rein in the national debt.

Biden visited Baltimore to discuss a renovation to the Baltimore-Patomic Tunnel, a rail tunnel he claimed to have passed through “a thousand times” as an Amtrak passenger.

“But folks look, I made a thousand trips through this tunnel, so I’ve been through this tunnel a thousand times,” said Biden. “But when folks talk about how bad the Baltimore tunnel needs an upgrade, you don’t need me to tell you.”

“I also know that it’s not just Amtrak; I know how important this tunnel is to the computer rail – computer rail, commuter rail – and MARC rail back and forth to Washington,” he added.

The White House estimates the project will run $6 billion, and up to $4.7 billion of the cost could be covered by the infrastructure bill.

“This law is the most significant investment in American roads and bridges since the interstate highway system, and it’s the most significant investment in the rail on America since Amtrak was created 50 years ago,” Biden asserted.

The “bipartisan infrastructure bill,” which yielded no conservative victories but many leftist spending initiatives, was signed into law in November 2021, months after he signed the massive $1.7 trillion American Rescue Plan, a coronavirus relief package.

As Breitbart News reported after the passage of the bill, “Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) … noted that only $110 billion of the $1.2 trillion in spending would fund roads, bridges, and other projects that most Americans would consider infrastructure.”

“The RSC wrote that it would include $66 billion in funding for Amtrak while preventing any taxpayer accountability for the railway service,” added Breitbart News’s Sean Moran.

Earlier this month, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen announced that the United States had hit its 31.3 trillion debt ceiling, and the Department of the Treasury estimated it could turn to “extraordinary measures” until June to keep the U.S. from defaulting on its runaway debt.

Biden’s press secretary, Karine Jean Pierre, has stated that the president believes the ceiling should be raised “without conditions,” and the White House has made clear the president does not intend to negotiate with Republicans, who are seeking cuts to offset the debt in exchange for raising the ceiling.

However, Biden, on the heels of his and the last Democrat-controlled Congress’s massive spending spree, noted a few weeks ago while speaking to mayors from around the country in the East Room of the White House that Washington, DC, politicians “need to focus on making sure we do not accumulate more debt.” He then floated the idea of tax hikes while seemingly attempting to amplify the narrative that Republicans seek spending cuts on Social Security and Medicare specifically.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy reportedly assured Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) last week that there would be no cuts to Social Security and Medicare. Former President Donald Trump has sternly warned Republicans against cuts to either program to “help pay for Joe Biden’s reckless spending spree.” Instead, he proposed cutting “hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars going to corrupt foreign countries,” cutting “the mass releases of illegal aliens that are depleting our social safety net and destroying our country,” ending radical gender programs in the military, and nixing reckless funding on “climate extremism.”

“Cut waste, fraud, and abuse everywhere that we can find it, and there’s plenty of it, but do not cut the benefits our seniors worked for and paid for their entire lives. Save social security, don’t destroy it,” he cautioned.

NYTimes: Mayorkas Smuggled 100,000 Job-Seeking Migrants Through Parole Pathway

NYTimes: Mayorkas Smuggled 100,000 Job-Seeking Migrants Through Parole Pathway

President Joe Biden’s border chief smuggled more than 100,000 economic migrants into the United States from May to December via a hidden “parole” pathway that was admitted on January 12.

Border chief Alejandro Mayorkas — a Cuban-born, equity-above-the-law, business-friendly, pro-migration zealot — is welcoming another 20,000 migrants per month via this parole pathway, officials told friendly reporters at a background briefing on January 25.

Many establishment reporters who cover the migration beat were unwilling or unable to describe the covert migration pathway, even though it was exposed in November by Todd Bensman at the Center for Immigration Studies.

The admissions and data came as GOP officials in 20 states filed a lawsuit against the hidden inflow. The inflow illegally heaps additional costs on states and their taxpayers, the lawsuit says. It also adds to the pocketbook damage done to ordinary Americans by Washington’s policy of importing more of the workers, renters, and consumers that spike values on Wall Street.

The New York Times was given an official briefing on the parole pathway. The pathway has been given a legal-sounding, jargon-style name — “CBP One” — to hide its purpose, scale, and impact:

[Before January 12] the CBP One process was open only to migrants who were recommended by a [government-approved] nonprofit organization, which applied on their behalf. From May to December, more than 109,000 migrants entered the United States this way.

Those parole pathway migrants were not included in the 1.3 million illegal migrants that were welcomed by Mayorkas’ agency during fiscal year 2022.

Officials are now using the parole pathway to import 20,000 more migrants each month, said the New York Times. That Biden inflow delivers 240,000 more migrants per year, despite the 1986 ban on corporate hiring of illegal workers.

Officials recently declared they will also use the same parole pathway to import an additional 360,000 migrants per year from Haiti, Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua.

Together, the two inflows — 240,000 and 350,000 — would add at least 600,000 extra economic migrants per year to the U.S. economy.

That huge labor inflow is roughly one extra migrant for every seven Americans who enter the workforce each year.

Under laws set in 1990, Congress caps legal immigration at about 1 million people per year. Administration officials also import roughly 800,000 temporary workers each year. So the plan to import 600,000 extra migrants far exceeds the cap set by Congress.

In 2022, Mayorkas also allowed 2 million illegal migrants through the border, including about 600,000 “gotaways” who have been told they will not be deported if they do not commit felonies.

That elite-delivered 2022 flood of about 4 million migrants forced down Americans’ wages and reduced high-tech investment in workplaces. It pushed many older, sicker, and slower Americans out of jobs, wages, and eventually, homes, while spiking investors’ profits and stock values.

“Young and middle-aged American men are less likely to be working now than at any time in U.S. history,” says a January 2023 study authored by Jonathan Rothwell. “The official labor force participation rate for prime-aged men fell from 97.1% in 1960 to 88.6% in 2022 (averaged through November), using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Current Population Survey,” said Rothwell, the top economist at the Gallup polling firm.

But the New York Times does not include any criticism of Mayorkas’s labor-smuggling operation. Instead, the headline and subheadline portray the massive inflow as an apparent reduction in illegal migrants:

Biden Officials Credit New Border Measures for Decline in Illegal Crossings

Crossings by migrants from Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela and Haiti have plummeted, but Republicans and some Democrats have attacked the new policies.

The newspaper includes several pro-migration editors, and so the article quotes pro-migration advocates who say the hidden labor pathway is too small:

Immigration advocates working with migrants in Mexico and the United States say the system leaves the neediest migrants — the ones who do not have smartphones or cannot afford to stay in Mexican hotels with internet access — at a disadvantage.

“CBP One, is turning out to be as awful as we predicted,” one advocacy organization, Al Otro Lado, wrote in a Twitter post on Tuesday. Migrants with resources like a smartphone and Wi-Fi “are the ones getting appointments, not the most vulnerable.”

Al Otro Lado has worked with the FWD.us advocacy group for West Coast billionaires. The fund was created by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and many other wealthy investors who gain from the inflow of cheap labor, compliant workers, high-occupancy renters, and government-aided consumers.

The establishment press does not ask Mayorkas about the pocketbook impact of his easy-migration policies on ordinary Americans.

The hands-off approach is similar to that of the establishment GOP, which focuses on border chaos and drug smuggling rather than the rising rents and shrinking wages imposed by elites on ordinary Americans.

For example, on January 8, a White House reporter asked Mayorkas: “What is your message to the American public about the impact of a labor shortage in America?”

Mayorkas responded by calling for an even greater skew of the nation’s labor market in favor of employers and investors:

The labor shortage in the United States is one powerful example of how desperately we need to fix our broken immigration system.  You know, we look to the north … Canada realized that it has a 1-million-person labor shortage there, and they are bringing in approximately 1.4 million migrants this year to address that labor shortage.

Our programs — our H-2A, our H-2B, our skilled worker programs — are far outdated to really meet the economic needs as well as the economic opportunities [for migrants] that immigration can provide.

The federal government has long operated an economic policy of Extraction Migration.

This colonialism-like policy extracts vast amounts of human resources from needy countries and uses the imported workers, renters, and consumers to grow Wall Street and the economy. In December 2022, for example, Mayorkas added roughly one low-wage, work-ready Latino or Asian migrant for every American who turned 18 that month.

The migrant inflow has successfully forced down Americans’ wages and also boosted rents and housing prices. The inflow has also pushed many native-born Americans out of careers in a wide variety of business sectors and contributed to the rising death rate of poor Americans.

The population inflow also reduces the political clout of native-born Americans, because it allows elites — including New York Times editors and writers — to divorce themselves from the needs and interests of ordinary Americans.

A 54 percent majority of Americans say Biden is allowing a southern border invasion, according to an August 2022 poll commissioned by the left-of-center National Public Radio (NPR). The 54 percent “Invasion” majority included 76 percent of Republicans, 46 percent of independents, and even 40 percent of Democrats.
