Alabama Senate candidate and former U.S. attorney general Jeff Sessions laid out his argument for a full immigration moratorium in the wake of the coronavirus recession during an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Thursday, calling for American policy makers to put Americans First in the light of mass unemployment and economic insecurity.
Sessions had made the call for a moratorium on Thursday morning, making the proposition as a means to alleviate the economic pressure placed upon tens millions of American workers by the coronavirus recession.
Watch Tucker’s exchange with Jeff Sessions here:
Sessions slammed rapacious for-profit corporate interests for demanding even more cheap labor foreign visa workers in an era where millions of Americans have lost their jobs.
“If there’s a choice between an American and a foreigner to get a job, it’s the American who should get the job over a foreigner. Give me a break. How simple is that? Who do we owe our responsibility to as public officials? It’s to the American people first.”
Sessions went on to blast the notoriously corrupt H-1B visa program used by Silicon Valley tech companies to replace American college graduates with foreign low-wage workers, pointing out the utility of such a program in an era where new college graduates are likely to face damaged job prospects.
“Why bring in foreign workers to take those jobs, when we should do everything possible to get American workers who are unemployed in those jobs?”
Sessions is running against football coach Tommy Tuberville for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senator in Alabama, an office he held for decades before resigning to serve as Attorney General. Tuberville has a dubious immigration track record, stating that the United States “needs” tens of millions of illegal immigrants to provide labor for America’s corporations.
Sessions, on the other hand, has what may be the strongest and most enduring America First track record for any national political figure throughout his decades of public service.
As Biden Eyes “Transition Away” From Fossil Fuels, Pennsylvania is Second-Largest Natural Gas Producer in US
Destroying Pennsylvanian jobs.
Joe Biden’s announcement that he plans on a “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels as an energy source may not go over smoothly with the people of Pennsylvania- a state that has scored as the second largest producer of natural gas anywhere in the country.
Joe Biden admitted at the Thursday debate that he plans to “transition away from the oil industry,” citing pollution.

The United States Energy Information Administration identifies a considerable 20.0% of national natural gas production as coming from the state of Pennsylvania, making it the second biggest producer behind Texas. The state punches well above its weight in doing so, producing almost as much natural gas as Texas despite having less than half of its population.
Biden has sought to dismiss his track record of support for the banning of fracking oil extraction, employing a similar thinly veiled rhetorical trick by stating he’d only decline to allow any new fracking.
The energy industry continues to be a source of gainful, family-supporting employment for over ten million Americans. It’s not an option to “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels in the immediate future- a fact Biden tacitly admitted to after the debate suggestion, perhaps indicating that he realized the political folly of the statement.
Biden also said he’s talking about “getting rid of the subsidies for fossil fuels. But we’re not going to get rid of fossil fuels for a long time.”

A study from the American Petroleum Industry indicates that more than 322,000 Pennsylvanians are employed by the natural gas industry that Biden wants to transition away from.
Pennsylvania is shaping up as the most critical swing state in the election, and in nearly every plausible election night scenario the winner of the state’s 20 electoral votes secures the 270 needed to win the election.
Perhaps Joe Biden should transition away from national politics, and leave policy answers relating to carbon emissions, the environment and a strong energy industry to those more considerate of the role of the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania and around the country.
