Roy Blunt Uninvited Trump Event

Missouri Senator Roy Blunt was uninvited from a Missouri GOP gathering after he voted with Democrats against President Donald J. Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the United States-Mexico border.

The Kansas City Star reports that Wanda Martens, a member of Missouri’s Christian County Republican Central Committee, made clear in an email leaked to the Star that Blunt is not welcome at the local party’s annual Lincoln/Trump Day Dinner on April 6 after he sided with Democrats in an attempt to stop President Trump’s national emergency declaration.

“I am so disappointed in you now that I can hardly speak,” wrote Wanda Martens, a member of the Christian County Republican Central Committee, in an email to Blunt’s office. “Why could you not support my president in the emergency declaration? President Trump tried every available means to work the Senate to resolve the border issue and build the much needed wall. He is well within his presidential powers to do this.

Martens serves as the local party committee’s events chair. She told the senator in her email, which was obtained by The Kansas City Star, that she did not want to see him when the local party holds its Lincoln/Trump Day Dinner on April 6 in Ozark, Missouri, one of the most conservative areas in the state.

Many states hold Lincoln Day Dinner events, but the Missouri Republican Party specifically changed the name to include President Trump to show support and draw more Republicans.

Other Missouri Republicans cited similar disgust with Blunt over his decision to side with Democrats over the president when it comes to border security.

The Star reported that Ed Martin, president of the Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense fund, believes that “Anybody thanking Roy for doing that is probably against Trump,” and another man was quoted as saying “I used to support Blunt. I just can’t do it anymore,” adding, “I’m sorry. He’s not supporting my president in the way that I anticipated.”

Blunt justified his vote using the talking point that says President Trump’s use of a national emergency to stop the endless flow of illegal immigrants, gangs, and drugs across the border would potentially allow future Democrat presidents to use national emergency powers to confiscate guns.

In an earlier article in the Star, Blunt said “Democrats have already made clear that they believe they could use this same authority to impose policies like gun control or the Green New Deal,” which most Republicans seem to agree is naive considering national emergency powers have existed in the United States for generations at this point.

KUSHNERNOMICS: President’s Son-in-Law Pushes for More Third-World Immigrants to Boost Corporate Profits

Kushner is claiming the proposal is “merit-based.”

Published

on

President Trump’s son-in-law and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner is aggressively rehabbing his proposal to flood the United States with third-world immigrants in order to boost corporate profits.

Reports indicate that Kushner is proposing a policy that would give “merit-based” visas to third-world immigrants to fill jobs that would otherwise go to American citizens. This will not only crowd Americans out of the job market, but also lower the wages of Americans who are currently employed. He also wants to create a new immigration czar, another federal bureaucrat to add to the Washington D.C. swamp.

The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) is highly critical of Kushner’s plan that they believe will lead to more foreigners getting green cards, and continue significantly to the demographic winter that the U.S. is staring down.

“What they do is they take Tom Cotton’s RAISE Act, which created a merit system which the president liked, and they basically puff it out to cover more people, more types of applicant types and a huge increase in numbers,” said Jessica Vaughn, who works as director of policy studies for CIS.

Kushner’s plan is to create a new “Build America Visa” that would apply to supposedly “extraordinarily talented individuals,” but that criteria is extremely subjective. Corporatist groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce want the Trump administration to open the flood gates for mass immigration because it will be good for their bottom line.

“Every incumbent president is interested in a growing economy, particularly in an election year,” said Neil Bradley, who works as chief policy officer at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

“One of the headwinds that the economy is facing is a lack of available workers and no sense that there’s any relief in sight,” he added.

Sadly, President Trump is following Kushner’s lead and backing away from the pledge for a truly “America First” immigration policy that he made on the campaign trail in 2016.

“To build on these historic gains, we are working on legislation to replace our outdated and randomized immigration system with one based on merit, welcoming those who follow the rules, contribute to our economy, support themselves financially and uphold our values,” Trump said.

“We have to allow smart people to stay in our country,” Trump told Laura Ingraham of Fox News last month. “We don’t have enough of them. And we have to be competitive with the rest of the world too.”

Big League Politics has reported on the many times that Kushner has pushed for mass immigration in the past:

McClatchy DC reported on Kushner’s scheming with individuals from the Koch-affiliated Libre Initiative, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and other open border groups as he exploited the government shutdown crisis to push amnesty…

The situation worsened in February when Kushner allowed globalist organizations to dominate talks on immigration reform. Breitbart News exposed organizations such as the Heritage Foundation, Americans for Prosperity, George W. Bush Center, and several trade groups pushing for cheap labor were given seats at the table while patriotic, ‘America First’ organizations were sidelined from discussions. As the lobbying continued, Trump’s rhetoric has gotten weaker and weaker on immigration.

“We need an immigration policy that helps all Americans thrive, flourish, prosper. We need an immigration policy that’s going to be great for our corporations and our great companies,” Trump said during an address to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday. “We need an immigration policy where people coming into our country can love our country and love our fellow citizens.”

Kushner has been too incompetent to get these measures passed up until this point, but he remains steadfastly determined to enact globalist immigration policies that will hurt the American worker immeasurably.
