WATCH: Tucker SLAMS Lindsey Graham For EB5 Visa Giveaway Scheme Amidst Coronavirus Epidemic

Graham wants to use the crisis to boost immigration visas.

Published

Tucker Carlson took South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a segment on his show Thursday night, blasting the opportunistic Senator for seeking to insert an immigration visa giveaway into upcoming Coronavirus stimulus legislation.

Graham is attempting to enact a raise in the annual level of EB-5 visas. The controversial program allows wealthy foreigners to enter the United States on the basis of supposed investment they make into the economy.

Graham is lobbying President Trump to agree to a massive boost to the program-raising annual EB-5 visa levels from a current total of 10,000 to 75,000. Graham also seeks to lower the threshold of investment for an EB-5 from $900,000 to $450,000.

In a display of tone-deaf politics taken to a new level, the EB-5 program Graham seeks to expand is currently commonly used by wealthy Chinese citizens to purchase American residency and citizenship. Allowing a free path to residency for China’s richest multi-millionaires and billionaires almost certainly would provide the Chinese government a means of entryism into major American institutions and society, in an age where the American public is more distrustful and skeptical of Chinese influence than ever before.

Graham has also gone on record advocating for a bailout of big businesses and private companies, while opposing direct basic income transfers to everyday working American families.

American citizenship is not a mere bauble to be offered for sale in a time of crisis, especially considering the EB-5’s dubious benefits on the American economy. The verification mechanisms for the visa recipients’ investments in American jobs are notoriously weak, to the extent that both major parties agreed to scale back the program last year.

America is a country, not merely an economy. It’s well past time Senator Graham gives up his constant attempt to retcon old globalist policies into President Donald Trump’s administration, especially in times of national emergency.

UK’s Prince Andrew Refusing to Cooperate With Jeffrey Epstein FBI Investigation

The prince had earlier said he’d cooperate with law enforcement.

Published

A federal prosecutor revealed that the UK’s Prince Andrew has refused to cooperate with an FBI investigation into deceased billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein during a press conference on an unrelated case Monday.

U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman, a federal prosecutor currently overseeing an investigation into Epstein, stated that Prince Andrew had rebuffed attempts to cooperate with him, despite earlier offering to assist prosecutors in the manner. Prince Andrew was known for his lengthy friendship with Epstein, traveling to his infamous ‘pedophile island’ on several occasions.

Contrary to Prince Andrew’s very public offer to cooperate with our investigation into Epstein’s co-conspirators, an offer that was conveyed via press release, Prince Andrew has now completely shut the door on voluntary cooperation and our office is considering its options.

The FBI is currently focusing on Ghislane Maxwell, a French socialite and longtime associate of Epstein. Maxwell has been described as a madame for the pedophile billionaire, recruiting young women for the use of him and his politically connected friends.

The royal was forced out of his position with the monarchy after his scandalous involvement with the deceased billionaire was brought to light. Some of the women who were trafficked by Epstein have accused Andrew of sexually abusing them, something the royal denies.

Prince Andrew resigned in the aftermath of a disastrous interview in which he attempted to rationalize his relationship with Epstein, that continued even after the Florida pedophile was convicted of sex crimes offenses.

The political elite on the other side of the Atlantic are just as corrupt as Epstein’s ilk in America, if not more so. The future of the British royal family has been placed in serious doubt by Prince Andrew, and Prince Harry’s weak resignation from public life at the behest of his overbearing spouse.
