House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who advertised himself as an ‘America First’ ally of President Trump to gain a Congressional leadership position, sold out American workers by supporting Democratic-proposed legislation to subsidize the outsourcing spree of Big Tech and other hostile multinational corporations.
The legislation, H.R. 1044, passed by an overwhelming 365-65 margin on Wednesday with incredible bipartisan support, as globalists from both sides of the aisle moved the bill forward to make it easier for American workers to be replaced by low-income immigrants from India.
Think there’s no room for bipartisan agreement on immigration? @ZoeLofgren and @RepKenBuck’s bill to end per-country caps for employment visas (i.e. reduce the backlogs) passed 365-65 today. Was never called for a vote last Congress.

The Senate version of the legislation is championed by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the venomously anti-Trump lawmaker who is running on a platform of racial animus in the hopes of attaining the Presidency in 2020.
“Ours is a nation of immigrants, and our strength has always come from our diversity and our unity,” Harris said of her legislation in a press release. “We must do more to eliminate discriminatory backlogs and facilitate family unity so that high-skilled immigrants are not vulnerable to exploitation and can stay in the U.S. and continue to contribute to the economy.”
There is a large contingent of bipartisan senators who have already coalesced behind the legislation. They include the bill’s primary co-sponsor, libertarian-leaning Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), as well as Sens. Roy Blunt (R-MO), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Jim Moran (R-KS), Tom Carper (D-DE), Maria Cantwell (D-WA), Cory Gardner (R-CO), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Susan Collins (R-ME), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), and Krysten Sinema (D-AZ).
McCarthy and 139 other House Republicans capitulated to special interests to pass H.R. 1044. The measure is backed by powerful trade associations, activist organizations, and think-tank groups including La Raza, The Heritage Foundation, Google, Immigration Voice, the Information Technology Industry Council, Compete America Coalition, Microsoft and many more.

Fox News host Sean Hannity blistered the legislation during an edition of his radio show on July 9.
“I do believe in merit-based immigration, but I don’t think this is the bill, though, because it would reward employers who literally replace American workers potentially with hundreds of thousands of low cost, less skilled workers who are entering on temporary visas, mainly H-1Bs, often working the tech sector,” Hannity said.
McCarthy lacked the backbone to stand with President Trump’s ‘America First’ mandate against this legislation to punish American workers. It will now go to the Senate for consideration, where Republican leaders in that chamber will have another chance to stand up to the lobbyists and power-brokers and stop this outsourcing bill.
Rand Paul Warns Third Party Will Rise if Republican Senators Vote with Democrats to Convict President Trump
The GOP is crumbling.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is warning that at least one-third of GOP senators will revolt and leave the party if Republicans join Democrats to convict the president.
This would potentially create the most viable third party in recent political history if Republican leadership is foolish enough to go down this path. Even though he refused to oppose the vote steal last week, Paul claims he and many of his colleagues intend to leave the party forever if the Senate goes through with impeachment.
“I didn’t agree with the fight that happened last week. I voted against over-turning the election,” Paul said while appearing on FOX News on Friday night. “But at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion. If Republicans go along with it, it will destroy the party. A third of the Republicans will leave the party.”
“A third of the Republicans will leave the party,” Paul added. “This isn’t about, anymore, about the Electoral College, it’s about the future of the party, and whether you’re going to ostracize and excommunicate President Trump from the party. Well, guess what? Millions of his fans will leave as well.”
Paul made these responses after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) publicly flirted with the idea of voting to convict President Trump.
“I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell said.
Paul is putting McConnell and the rest of the GOP leadership on notice. This is the line in the sand as far as he is concerned.
“They will destroy the Republican Party. If leadership is complicit with an impeachment or if leadership votes for an impeachment, they will destroy the party,” Paul said.
“Like I say, I have opposed President Trump when I thought he was wrong, I’ve been for him when he was right. We did a lot of good things throughout the Trump presidency, and impeachment is purely a partisan thing,” he added.
The full segment with Paul and host Laura Ingraham can be seen here:
Big League Politics has reported on the division within the GOP since 10 Republican turncoats in the House join Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time:
Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.
“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”
“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added…
Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”
The realignment that is happening within the conservative movement might result in the destruction of the Republican Party. President Trump may ultimately destroy the GOP swamp.
