Tucker Carlson: Senate GOP Trying to Pack Foreign Workers into U.S. Jobs While 18M Americans Are Jobless

Tucker Carlson of the Fox News Channel says Senate Republicans are attempting to pack foreign workers into high-paying U.S. jobs while nearly 18 million Americans are jobless.

On Thursday evening, Carlson slammed Senate Republicans for failing to stop Sen. Mike Lee’s (R-UT) green card giveaway that will allow Indian nationals to effectively monopolize employment-based green cards for at least a decade and tech corporations to privatize the system.

The giveaway solidifies that employment-based visas only go to temporary foreign visa workers, mostly on H-1B visas, who have been imported to the U.S. by corporations to replace American workers, thus rewarding companies who outsource American white-collar jobs.

As noted by Carlson, the giveaway comes as the Justice Department files suit against Facebook — which lobbied for the giveaway — for allegedly discriminating against Americans in favor of foreign workers.

“We’ve known for a long time that Silicon Valley wants foreign workers to dominate our economy,” Carlson said. “They don’t care what kind of effect that has on Americans. What’s surprising is that in a time of mass unemployment — and that’s what we have now, mass unemployment — the Republican Party of all people is helping them do it. That’s happening.”

“Yesterday, the Republican-controlled Senate unanimously passed a law called the ‘Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act.’ As if the problem with America is that we don’t have enough fairness for people from other countries. No concern about fairness for Americans,” Carlson continued. “The whole process took a matter of moments. It was led by Utah Senator Mike Lee. And without any objections, passed it.”

Carlson described the giveaway as an outsourcing scheme levied against young, middle-class Americans who aspire to U.S. technology jobs. Their job prospects, Carlson said, will be crushed as a result:

What will that do to you and your kids? Let’s say you would like to have your kids graduate from college with all the debt they have and get a high-paying job in technology — much less likely now. That job is going to go to someone from another country.

They’ll tell you, “We don’t have enough well-educated people to fill those slots.” Really? As they’re forcing your kids to take classes on Zoom, as they let American schools degrade to the point that they are a joke — Republicans aren’t even disputing that point.

Most notably, Carlson said the giveaway is contrasted against the nation’s mass unemployment crisis whereby nearly 18 million Americans are jobless and another 6.7 million Americans are underemployed but all of whom want full-time jobs.

“Again, this is all unfolding at a time when we have the highest unemployment rate in your life, mine, anyone watching the show. This is the highest unemployment rate since you’ve lived in this country,” Carlson said:

Your kids, your grandkids are not going to be able to get jobs in a lot of cases. And yet, the United States Senate, led by the Republicans, has decided to make it easier for foreigners to take — and these are not landscaping jobs — high-paying jobs, white-collar jobs, the kinds of jobs you actually want your kids to have.

So this bill now goes onto the House … and then onto the president who has not pledged a veto. If Silicon Valley gets its way, it will be the first and last immigration bill this administration signs off on. Hopefully, it isn’t. And you should remember who did — Mike Lee of Utah.

Last year, 140 House Republicans helped 224 House Democrats pass the giveaway after a huge lobbying effort by Big Tech corporations, the Chamber of Commerce, and the billionaire Koch brothers’ network of organizations.

The legislative path forward for the giveaway, insiders told Breitbart News, is to have the House pass an identical version of the Senate-approved legislation which would send it straight to President Trump’s desk for signage or a veto. The White House has not stated whether Trump supports the giveaway.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) has indicated that she plans to bring the giveaway to a standstill by amending the legislation in the House which would then send it back to the Senate where it would need to be approved before Congress adjourns for the holiday season.

Michigan Poll Workers Testify On Election Violations, Calling Detroit Ballot Counting A ‘Madhouse’

Michigan’s Senate Oversight Committee heard testimonies on Tuesday from witnesses concerned that there were counting irregularities and potential election violations in Detroit.

While Michigan already certified its election results showing Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden as the winner of the state, voting irregularities in absentee ballot counting at the TCF Center in Detroit were a cause for concern for many.

Republican, Independent, and unaffiliated poll workers, watchers, election challengers, and others who filled out written statements and sworn affidavits were given three minutes to give their testimony to the committee as, in which many attested that the “hostile environment” the TCF Center not only hindered them from completing their duties, but also gave ample room for abnormal and suspicious activity.

“If I would have thought that it was gonna be that much of a madhouse against the GOP people, and it was so biased, I would have been there every day,” one unaffiliated poll challenger stated.I was not there with an agenda. I was there to just do my job and they didn’t like that simply because I had a GOP lanyard on, even though I’m an unaffiliated voter.”

Inside the TCF Center, many challengers noted, was unorganized and understaffed chaos.

Dozens of witnesses claimed that they observed deliveries of ballots in the middle of the night after ballot arrivals were supposed to end, people bubbling blank ballots in for Democrats, duplicate ballots being misplaced or wrongfully placed under boxes, all while poll challengers were forced to stand so far away from tables that they could not see the tabulation screens.

One witness testified that the computers used to help tabulate votes at the facility displayed error codes signaling that updates were overdue. The computers also allegedly displayed different and inconsistent times on the screen.

Some challengers said they were harassed and sometimes kicked out over alleged violations of COVID-19 guidelines such as social distancing and mask-wearing, which were often met with affirmative cheering and applause from election workers in the facility.

These coronavirus health and safety protocols, many of the witnesses said, were selectively applied to Republican poll challengers while other election workers were allowed to sit and stand closer than six feet.

“They used it as an excuse from the minute we walked in,” one poll challenger said. “It was an excuse to throw people out.”

Some witnesses complained that certain election workers were illegally wearing political statements such as “Black Lives Matter” masks and pro-Biden paraphernalia on their shirts, masks, and other clothing items, despite being warned not to.

When some of the poll challengers tried to file complaints about these observed irregularities, they were left on hold and received no response from any election officials or complaint hotlines.

These irregularities and problems, many of the poll challengers and watchers said, are not only concerning, but should push state senators to require a forensic audit of the ballots in Wayne County.

Michigan House Oversight Committee Chairman Matt Hall, R-Emmett Township, told The Detroit Free Press that Trump Campaign attorney Rudy Giuliani will be testifying in front of his committee on Wednesday evening.

David Azerrad Explains How To Revitalize The GOP By Harnessing American Virtues

On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, assistant professor at Hillsdale College in Washington, D.C. David Azerrad joins Host Ben Domenech to discuss how the GOP can harness its populist influence to recapture voters, reaffirm its moral roots, and address some of the bigger issues facing the nation today.

“The end unto itself is to get a majority coalition, regardless of what it looks like, to win elections and implement sound policies to keep the country going and to bring it back to greatness. That should be the goal,” Azerrad said.

“I often say that I wish that the right would fight with the same clarity of purpose, resolve, and ruthlessness with which the left fights,” he added. 

While the media and political elites have positioned themselves against conservatives for years, Azerrad said there is hope for the Republicans to grow and expand the party to encompass a more diverse coalition of voters.

“We need to find some way to criticize the rotten ruling class we have but to also signal that there is room in the party for college-educated urban people who love this country,” he added.

“I think there is plenty of virtue left in the American people which is one of the reasons that I am not black-pilled like some of my friends are,” Azerrad said. “I’m not willing to give up on a country in which 73 million people voted for someone who they had been told for the past four years, was basically some sort of a Nazi.”

Poll: Majority of Voters Want Republicans to Control Senate in 2021

A majority of voters want Republicans to stay in control of the Senate in 2021 following the Georgia runoff races, according to a Harvard CAPS-Harris poll.

“Fifty-six percent of voters said they want a divided government with Republicans in control of the upper chamber,” while 44 percent said they want Democrats to control the Senate, data released to the Hill found.

“The poll comes weeks after both Georgia Senate races headed to runoffs after all four candidates failed to reach the 50 percent threshold in the state needed to win an election,” the article continued:

Incumbent Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) garnered 86,000 more votes than his Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff, while the other Democratic candidate, the Rev. Raphael Warnock, benefited from the fact that two Republicans — Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Rep. Doug Collins — were on the ballot in his race, dividing the GOP vote.

Hollywood celebrities are donating major funds to the Democrat candidates, according to Breitbart News.

A-list stars including George Clooney, Will Smith, Joaquin Phoenix, and Leonardo DiCaprio are pouring cash into Georgia’s runoff elections, hoping to push Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock across the finish line, thereby flipping the Senate blue,” the report said.

However, Perdue’s campaign released an ad on Friday calling him the “last line of defense” against defunding the police, voting rights for illegal immigrants, and packing the United States Supreme Court:

“That’s their goal, total radical control to bring horrific change to America. Only Georgians can stop them,” the video’s narrator says.

In a tweet on Monday, Donald Trump Jr. urged residents to vote for Perdue and Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA).

“I’m seeing a lot of talk from people that are supposed to be on our side telling GOP voters not to go out & vote for @KLoeffler and @PerdueSenate. That is NONSENSE. IGNORE those people,” he wrote:

“We need ALL of our people coming out to vote for Kelly & David,” Trump Jr. concluded.

Outside Groups Flooding Georgia with Ad Buys Before Senate Runoffs

Outside groups are gearing up to buy ad reservations in Georgia before the Senate runoffs, according to data from the ad tracking firm AdImpact.

“The flood of outside money comes as Democrats and Republicans battle for the two GOP-held seats, which with the Senate currently at a 50-48 majority for the next Congress will determine which party controls the upper chamber,” the Hill reported.

Since the primaries began in 2019, the two races combined have seen $206 million of political media spending, the outlet said, adding that the number is expected to climb in the remaining weeks leading up to the runoff elections in early January:

Data from the tracking firm for the race between Sen. David Perdue (R), who is running for a second term, and Democrat Jon Ossoff, shows a massive spike in money already reserved for advertisements in the final month-and-a-half sprint.

The Ossoff campaign and outside groups have reserved more than $38 million in ads through the beginning of January, while Perdue and GOP groups supporting him have reserved more than $28 million in ad time. AdImpact says it has already tracked a combined $71.5 million in the two weeks after the race was officially extended.

Perdue released a campaign advertisement on November 13 revealing the Democrats’ call to take “total Democratic control” through the U.S. Senate majority, according to Breitbart News.

“Now we take Georgia, then we change America,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) says in the video:

In a statement on Friday, Perdue campaign manager Ben Fry said that Ossoff would be “a rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi, AOC, and Chuck Schumer in their bid to horrifically change America.”

“David Perdue is our last line of defense against efforts to give voting rights to illegal immigrants, defund the police, pack the Supreme Court, and take away private health insurance coverage. We must reject this radical takeover on January 5th — and save America,” he concluded.

Georgia Republican Poll Watcher Discovered Recount Error Off By More Than 9,000 Votes For Biden

An error in DeKalb County, Georgia during a recount caused a voting batch to be labeled incorrectly, appearing to overstate Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden’s performance.

David Shafer, Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, announced the error on Twitter Wednesday morning saying that while the batch of ballots contained 1,081 votes for Biden and 13 for Trump, the batch was labeled as containing 10,707 votes for Biden.

“One of our monitors discovered a 9,626 vote error in the Dekalb County hand count,” Shafer said. “One batch was labeled 10,707 for Biden and 13 for Trump — an improbable margin even by DeKalb standards. The actual count for the batch was 1,081 for Biden and 13 for Trump,” Shafer said.

The error reportedly occurred Sunday, as recorded in a signed affidavit, and was observed by a Republican poll watcher who was monitoring the “audit, vote review, hand count, and recording” of votes at the DeKalb County Board of Elections. During their observations, the GOP poll watcher, joined by another Republican, noticed the mistake on the early voting ballot box and brought it to the attention of election officials.

The officials corrected the error, finding two fewer total votes than previously thought.

Shafer also pointed out that other errors may have gone unnoticed due to limitations and restrictions on how many observers could be assigned to counting tables.

“We were limited to 1 monitor for every 10 counting tables and we were kept some distance from the tables,” he wrote. “There is no telling what we missed under these unreasonable restrictions. The miscounted batch had been signed off by two official counters.”

DeKalb County reportedly completed their “state-mandated, risk-limiting” audit Sunday night.

Georgia began a full recount and audit less than week ago. During this period multiple errors have been discovered by election officials.

In Fayette County, 2,755 votes that were left out of the first count were found, and 1,577 of the votes were eventually tallied for President Donald Trump, while 1,128 for Joe Biden.

“The votes that were found through our audit process here in Georgia in Floyd, Fayette, and Walton counties will be added to all races where votes were cast on those ballots,” said Georgia Voting System Implementation Manager Gabriel Sterling. “Both Senator Perdue and Bubba McDonald are still in runoffs even with these vote additions.”

According to WSBTV, 57 counties left the recount with the same ballot count as before, but 21 counties are either above or below the original ballot count and 32 counties are “off by single-digit numbers and are being investigated.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden is leading Georgia by just under 13,000 votes.

Trump: Michigan Republican officials were ‘threatened, screamed at and viciously harassed, and were forced to change their vote’

November 18, 2020

Tuesday night in Wayne County, Michigan, the Board of Canvassers could not come to an agreement on certifying the election votes.

The Republicans had concerns that a large number of Detroit precincts were “out of balance,” meaning that the numbers of voters who signed into polling places did not match the number of ballots there. Many GOP leaders and the White House voiced their concerns about the findings.

In response, Donald Trump tweeted, “Michigan just refused to certify the election results! Having courage is a beautiful thing. The USA stands proud!”

A few hours later, the vote reconsideration took place.

Under a revised motion, the canvassers voted to unanimously certify the Wayne County election results but demanded a “comprehensive audit” by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.

The Republican canvassers agreed to certify the results after the promise of an audit but it didn’t come easily. According to reports the Republicans were under enormous pressure from the left to certify the results.

By Wednesday morning, President Trump reacted to the election certification, saying on Twitter that the canvassers were “threatened, screamed at and viciously harassed, and were forced to change their vote.”

Jonathan Kinloch, one of two Democrats on the board, said the audit will commence after the Board of State Canvassers certifies Michigan election results, which could happen as soon as Nov. 23. 

Monica Palmer, one of the two Republicans on the board, initially said that she did not “have faith that the poll books are complete and accurate” and said the compromise addressed her concerns.

“I appreciate putting our heads together to come to a solution,” Palmer said.

Democrats Lament Failure to Turn Texas Blue: ‘What the F*ck Is Happening?’

Texas Democrats are trying to regroup after failing to make gains at nearly every level despite their belief they would turn the state blue during last week’s presidential election.

“I remember sitting [in] the office, putting my hands on my temples and saying, ‘what the f— is happening?’” Progress Texas executive director Ed Espinoza recalled of watching the votes come in on election night.

A Democrat strategist who worked on down-ballot races told the Hill it was “pretty clear at this point that we were wrong about what the environment would look like. And I don’t think it was just us.”

“Our polling showed the same thing national polling showed, and ultimately Republican polling too, which was that Trump was going to lose 7 to 10 points off of his 2016 margins in Texas and across the country. That didn’t happen,” the strategist explained.

President Trump made big gains in traditionally Democrat-held counties on or near the Texas border on November 3 while Joe Biden lost more counties than nearly any Democrat candidate in the state’s history, a political consultant told Breitbart News.

“There is a systematic bias in the Democrat world that pigeonholes people into voting certain ways,” said Dave Carney, chief political consultant for Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. “There is a belief that if more Latinos voted, more Democrats would get elected.”

Voters in the region turned out, thanks to President Trump delivering on his promises regarding economic growth and border security, according to Carney.

“Trump’s performance with Latino voters was impressive. In many counties, he doubled his 2016 turnout,” he noted.

In addition, Republicans kept their majority in the Texas House, maintained control of the Texas Senate, the Supreme Court, the Court of Criminal Appeals, and the Railroad Commission.

“They’re really good salesmen. But they’re clearly not using good data because they lose and they lose and they lose,” GOP strategist Corbin Casteel said of Democrats.

“Texas is absolutely still a red state, and all you need to do is look at all these contested House races that Democrats were spending all this money to try to flip,” Casteel concluded.

Republicans Pick Up Tenth House Seat With New York Victory

House Republicans added one more to their ranks this week after New York Democratic Rep. Max Rose conceded defeat Thursday in the Staten Island-area district.

“I received a gracious phone call from Rep. Max Rose today conceding the election,” wrote State Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis on Twitter. “I want to thank him for his service to our nation in both the military and in Congress. We agreed to work together on a seamless transition to best serve our constituents.”

Rose, a freshman Democrat in the lower chamber had flipped the seat two years ago in what is widely considered one of the most conservative districts in New York City. Rose was one of 41 Democratic lawmakers to oust Republicans in 2018 to reclaim the House majority halfway into President Donald Trump’s first term putting California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi back in the speaker’s chair.

The Republican victory in New York marks the GOP’s tenth pick-up for a net gain of six seats in the House, a majority of whom are women.

As of this writing with several races still being decided, Democrats are on track to retain a narrow House majority. According to the New York Times, Democrats are so far projected to hold 218 seats to Republicans’ 202, with 15 states remaining to be called.

Last week’s losses however, have stunned Democrats where leadership expected to pick up as many as 15 to 20 seats expanding their ranks. On Monday, Illinois Democrat Rep. Cheri Bustos stepped down from her role as House Democrats’ campaign chief leading the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). According to Politico, Bustos explained in a letter to colleagues she was “gutted at the losses we sustained,” and pledged “a transparent after-action-review to better understand why the national polling and modeling environment failed to materialize.”

In a leaked call with Bustos, Pelosi, and the House Democratic caucus, moderate members cast blame on the party’s decision to embrace socialism and extreme calls to “Defund Police,” for costing them seats.

“No one should say ‘defund the police’ ever again,” said Virginia Rep. Abigail Spanberger, who narrowly pulled out a second term with a two-point win in the Richmond suburbs. “Nobody should be talking about socialism.”

After Burning Cities Down for MONTHS, Democrats Now Concerned Conservatives are Going to Become Hostile

Democrats BLM riots election 2020 Trump Biden

The Democrats are suddenly worried about Trump supporters causing violence and civil unrest. This is the same party that has encouraged BLM and Antifa to burn, loot and harass people in cities across the country. Their hypocrisy is on full display.

Trump claims voter fraud

The Democrats were hoping to sail to an easy victory this election and install Joe Biden in the White House. They had help from the mainstream media, who served up softball questions to Joe Biden while completely ignoring the countless scandals he was involved in.

They also had help from social media companies like Twitter and facebook who suspended Conservative accounts, blocked the spread of news stories implicating Joe Biden in illegal foreign business deals, and even slapped misinformation warnings on President Trump’s Tweets.

We are witnessing an unprecedented power grab by the Left and they have zero shame about it.

It seems the Left has another tool in their arsenal now. Voter fraud. Accounts of voter fraud and irregularities are coming in from several key battleground states. Dead people voting in Michigan.

Postal workers throwing out bags of ballots in Nevada. Ballots being marked as illegitimate in Arizona. A software glitch in Wisconsin turning Trump votes into Biden votes.

President Trump has assured the American people we will have a fair election. His campaign has filed lawsuits in several states and they’re currently investigating all of these claims of voter fraud. The Left is calling this a baseless conspiracy theory, claiming there is no widespread evidence of fraud and it’s dangerous to suggest so. What are they so afraid of?

Democrats Election 2020 Riots BLM

Democrats suddenly want law and order

For five years the Democrats have been peddling their own baseless conspiracy theory, calling Trump a puppet of Putin and telling Americans the only reason he was elected is because of Russians meddling in our election.

They spent millions of dollars investigating the President, only to find there was no evidence to back up their claims. After the years of lies, smears and harassment from the Left, the President deserves a fair election.

The Left has also been encouraging many of the race riots fueled by BLM over the past year. They claim to be supporting social justice, but what they’re actually supporting is a violent Marxist mob that topples statues, burns buildings, loots businesses, harasses citizens and even murders people in cold blood.

If Trump supporters did a fraction of what BLM did, they would be labeled as terrorists and have federal law enforcement agencies taking them out. But no, the Left ignores BLM’s horrific crime sprees while they focus on silencing Trump and his supporters.

Mary McCord, the Justice Department’s former top national security official, said “There’s no question that the disinformation coming from the president and his surrogates about ballot fraud is fueling far-right groups in ways that present threats to public safety,” McCord said. “But more attention is being paid to them by federal, state and local law enforcement and that is having an impact.”

The Left’s strategy is getting old now. We’re onto their games. They label Trump supporters as racist White supremacists when the truth is they’re just hard-working patriotic Americans.

If the Left disagrees with something, it’s labeled as disinformation and deemed too dangerous for social media. They want us censored, canceled, banned and “removed from polite society.” But we’re not going down without a fight.
