Leftist Congressman, Ben Shapiro Team Up To Stop Trump’s Plan To Build Wall

Published

Two influential Californians have paired up in an attempt to stop President Donald J. Trump from building that big beautiful wall on the southern border.

“Declaring a national emergency would be fruitless and cynical,” said #NeverTrump pundit Ben Shapiro, linking to an op-ed that he wrote on his own blog.

Shapiro’s piece found an audience in Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), a through and through leftist who, much like Shapiro, has opposed Trump at nearly every turn. Depending on how closely you follow politics, this may or may not be surprising.

“I agree with that declaring a national emergency would be fruitless and cynical. ,” Lieu said, quoting the Shapiro Tweet.

Thi dynamic is typical of elite politicians and pundits. Party affiliation really does not make a difference, as long as someone in the D.C. establishment is running the ship.

Shapiro has been an anti-Trump magnate from the start. He wrote a column called “I Will Never Vote For Donald Trump. Here’s Why,” on his blog in March of 2016.

“I will never vote for Donald Trump because I stand with certain principles. I stand with small government and free markets and religious freedom and personal responsibility. Donald Trump stands against all of these things,” the piece said.

Of course, establishment conservatives like Shapiro failed to conserve anything before Trump took office. The principles of small government and free markets are long gone in America, thanks to the constant rolling over of “conservative” politicians of Shapiro’s brand for the past 50 years.

Speaking of religious freedom, Trump has been the most pro-life president president in a generation, and likewise has dissolved the power of the federal government by slashing tens of thousands of unnecessary regulations.

But still, Shapiro finds himself on the side of liberals like Ted Lieu when it comes to the issue of immigration. Shapiro’s blog is funded by fracking billionaires Dan and Farris Wilks, who have a vested interest in cheap labor – hence the open borders advocacy. Lieu is simply a numbskull Democrat toeing the party line in order to keep his cushy Congressional gig. Together, they embody America’s political class.

Forget what the American people have demanded. Shapiro and Lieu are far too invested in their own interests to listen.

Coronavirus Stimulus Contains Whopping $350 Million Refugee Resettlement Boondoggle

This has nothing to do with the virus, or the economy.

Published

on

It appears that a $350 million dollar appropriation for purposes of “Migration and Refugee Assistance” managed to slip inside the coronavirus stimulus package.

Populist commentator Ryan Girdusky first reported on the hidden boondoggle as the legislation was being prepared for a Senate vote Wednesday night. It’s one of several unrelated pork planks in the massive $2 trillion stimulus that was able to slip in without the scrutiny of Republican senators.

The proposal to enrich refugee resettlement contractors appears to have migrated into the legislation originally introduced by Mitch McConnell from Nancy Pelosi’s rivaling proposal. The Speaker of the House had temporarily derailed the stimulus package by introducing a plan of her own, but from the looks of it, she’s getting a crucial element of the left-wing social agenda Democrats have tried to tie to the stimulus with the refugee resettlement package.

Florida’s Matt Gaetz appears to be one of the few members of Congress to question the totally unrelated refugee giveaway in the moment of legislative urgency.

Nominal charitable and non-profit entities have gamed and rigged the American refugee resettlement process for years, enriching themselves to the tunes of tens of millions of dollars if not more on the taxpayer dime. Migration skeptics have long questioned the utility of such an arrangement, pointing out that spending hundreds millions of dollars to resettle people in the United States could be used to far greater effect in providing relief for displaced peoples closer to their homes countries.

Existing refugee resettlement programs have continued in spite of the raging coronavirus pandemic. More than 3,000 people have been resettled in the United States since January, when the disease began surfacing on the radar of the federal government.

The Washington D.C. Swamp appears to have succeeded in utilizing one of its oldest cards in this instance, attaching a totally unrelated refugee proposal to a sorely needed economic relief package. It’s likely the proposal would have shot down on other circumstances, but congressional Democrats ultimately proved tactful enough to advance their preferred and entirely unrelated special interest in a moment of great legislative urgency.
