Senate Spending Bill Has a Backdoor Amnesty for 4,000 Liberians, Trump Must Reject It

Published

Is President Trump about to sign a backdoor amnesty bill?

On Tuesday, December 17, 2019, the Senate voted for the National Defense Authorization Act of 2020.

Although the bill was originally intended to fund the Defense Department, it had provisions snuck into it that would give permanent residency to thousands of Liberians.

Rhode Island Senator Jack Reed, slipped this provision into the final bill while no one was looking. This bill, S.1790, only had 8 Senators vote against it — four Republicans and four Democrats. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was one of the dissenters.

This bill would provide permanent residency and a pathway to citizenship to about 4,000 Liberian nationals. Without this provision passing, these Liberians would face deportation.

President Trump is expected to sign the NDAA into law when it comes to his desk. However, he was opposed to allowing these Liberians to stay in the U.S. Under the Deferred Enforced Departure program, the Liberians are allowed to stay in America, however.

Trump has made two attempts to end DED status for Liberians, with his most recent attempt dating back to March. Despite his threats, Trump extended the Liberians’ protective status in that same month.

If the NDAA becomes law of the land in its current form, the Liberians in question will receive citizenship. Not exactly the America First platform that voters signed up for in 2016.

Even nationalist commentator Tucker Carlson has noticed this devious aspect of the 2020 NDAA.

One Twitter user posted a video clip of Carlson attacking this bill:

“Tucker on the upcoming spending bill: ‘Thousands of Liberians from Liberia living in this country will get a special pathway to citizenship. Why? How did that happen? Don’t ask. It was never debated. You had no idea it was evening happening. This is your country. You didn’t know.’ “

 

Hopefully, Trump sniffs out the nasty part of this spending bill and sends it back to the Senate so that the amnesty provision is removed.

A Week After Getting Kicked Off YouTube, Stefan Molyneux Gets Booted from Twitter

Published

on

On July 7, 2020, right wing social media philosopher Stefan Molyneux received a suspension from Twitter, a week following his ban from YouTube. This move comes at a time when many people are questioning Big Tech’s influence on political discussion on the Internet

The ban was implemented without even so much as a warning, according to a report by RT. Molyneux explained the situation during a livestream. “It’s nice to see that Twitter is talking to tech journalists before they would talk to me,” he commented. The right-wing pundit asserted that he was suspended from the platform following the promotion of a new essay that details his values and beliefs. “It’s not hard to understand why powerful people might not want you to read what I wrote below,” Molyneux wrote in a note detailing his suspension from Twitter.

Molyneux is of the opinion that the campaign to deplatform conservative influences has begun to “energize” conservatives. He believes that his ban shows “who has the power and who doesn’t have the power.”

Twitter disputed the idea that he was kicked off for ideological reasons. Twitter provided a statement to CNN in which it contended that Molyneux “was suspended for spam and platform manipulation, specifically operating fake accounts.”

But others condemned Twitter’s decision and warned of a growing assault on free speech, expecting “the purge” to “accelerate.”

Fellow commentators such as Mike Cernovich were critical of this decision. He took it a step further by predicting that the group of renowned public figures who recently signed on to an open letter calling out cancel culture would not bother to defend Molyneux.

Cernovich tweeted,”The Venn diagram of people who just signed that Against Cancel Culture letter and those who will mention Stefan Molyneux being banned will be two wholly non-intersecting circles.”

Molyneux is the host of Freedomain Radio and was permanently unpersoned from YouTube on June 29 after supposedly being in violation of the site’s “hate speech” policies.

Molyneux’s removal comes at a time when Big Tech is putting the clamps on all forms of right-wing dissent.

BLP previously reported on Big Tech attacking pro-gun groups as part of their plan to muzzle any form of right-wing expression.

As the 2020 elections approach, this kind of censorship will likely increase against figures who actually stir the pot.
