Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) is a pariah after flipping and joining Democrats to support witnesses during the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, and attempt to prolong the farce that has been lingered on for many years and damaged the Republic immeasurably.
While most Republicans are fighting mad at Romney, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) felt the need to defend Romney in a Twitter post shortly after he made his disgraceful vote.
“Mitt Romney is a good friend and an excellent Senator. We have disagreed about a lot in this trial. But he has my respect for the thoughtfulness, integrity, and guts he has shown throughout this process. Utah and the Senate are lucky to have him,” Lee wrote.
This may be a case of RINOs sticking together. After all, Lee has led the way to open the flood gates for mass immigration and drive the wages of American workers down with his so-called Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2019.
Lee is working with communist Democrat Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on a bill that would potentially bring over millions of more left-wing voters to bury the Constitution for good.
Big League Politics has reported on Lee’s shameful betrayal of “America First” principles:
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), aided by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and his Big Tech funders, has been championing legislation that would open up the flood gates to third-world immigrants, primarily from India, to receive green cards and take jobs from American-born workers.
With Republicans neutered because their subservience to special interests such as the Koch network, the most likely opposition to the legislation’s passage comes from Democrats like Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), who believe S. 386 is unfair because it primarily benefits Indians while hurting other immigrants.
“They are increasing the immigration from countries like India a marginal small amount at the expense of cutting back on immigration from other countries in a much more dramatic fashion—I don’t think there’s equity in that,” Durbin told the Wall Street Journal earlier this month…
Some pro-Hispanic immigration groups even oppose the legislation because they feel it will hurt Hispanic businesses in order to help Big Tech drive their labor costs down.
“This is a cheap fix, not the right fix. This backlog is horrible but should be dealt with by enlarging quotas or exempting those deemed extraordinary or in the national interest, not by destroying immigration for the rest of the world,” said Tammy Fox-Isicoff, board member of American Immigration Lawyers Association.
“If it goes through, no one in Florida, except Indian nationals, will get residence through employment for the next decade or more. This will kill Florida, basically end all future Hispanic employment immigration to the U.S.,” she added.
While Lee feels the need to defend Romney after he has disgraced himself, other conservatives do not feel the same way. The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) even made it clear that Romney is persona non grata at their annual event later this month.

Unfortunately for Romney, his vote ended up being completely irrelevant. The Senate ultimately voted by a 51-49 margin to reject hearing witnesses during President Trump’s impeachment trial. Romney’s sour grapes accomplished nothing, except to make himself even more reviled by his own constituents.
Democrat Black Farmers Bill Would Give Away $8 Billion of Land Yearly in Reparations Program
South Africa-style land redistribution?
Democrat Senators are touting new legislation that would purchase national farmland and give it away to Black Americans for free.
Democrats Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Elizabeth Warren are sponsoring the the Justice for Black Farmers Act, which seems likely to be the most wide-ranging affirmative action program ever enacted if it’s signed into law. It’s not inaccurate to call the bill a reparations program.

The law establishes preferences for Black Americans within Department of Agriculture policy. Blacks would be granted free land purchased by the federal government, in total increments that appear to add up to $8 billion a year.
An undersecretary of a USDA “Equitable Land Access Service” would be entrusted with purchasing(using taxpayer funds) and redistributing land. The reparation bill appropriates for a massive 20,000 grants annually over ten years, adding up to a total redistribution package of $80 billion.
The under-secretary would be commissioned to “(1) purchase from willing sellers, at a price not greater than fair market value, available agricultural land in the United States; and (2) subject to section 205, convey grants of that land to eligible Black individuals at no cost to the eligible Black individuals.”
If the bill redistributes 160 acres per grant, it would ultimately end up transferring 1.6% of the total land in the continental United States for free.
Democrats cite a decline in the numbers of black farmers since the 1920’s as an impetus for the bill, pointing out that there were 1 million black farmers in 1920 and 50,000 today. Such logic ignores that the number of American farmers broadly has declined sharply as the United States transitioned to an industrial economy, and that millions of Black Americans who worked under poor conditions as sharecroppers in the American South have long since moved to northern cities.
The bill is somewhat similar to South African racial land redistribution policies, which differ primarily in that they forcibly nationalized land owned by Afrikaner farmers and redistributed them to South African Blacks. South Africa’s land reforms in the name of “equity” have proven to generally be a failure, with novel farmers unable to utilize the land they’ve been gifted in a manner beneficial to society. South Africa has transitioned from a bountiful agricultural society known as the “bread basket of Africa” to a net food importer, with experts pointing to arbitrary land redistribution as a factor in doing so.
