How to Defeat the Xenophobes According to Bloomberg’s New American Economy

The Hill published an opinion piece yesterday by the Yalie who runs Michael Bloomberg’s ‘New American Economy,’ Jeremy Robbins, entitled:

How to end xenophobia for once and for all

The gist of the piece is how Bloomberg goes into certain selected cities and Congressional districts and pours money into propaganda to change the minds of elected officials and business leaders about the need to import and welcome ‘new Americans.’  He has been at this for ten years already!

Michael Bloomberg is the chairman of the New American Economy. See what other globalists are working with him: http://www.newamericaneconomy.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/NAE_Membership_List.pdf

Now he wants to be sure to get all you xenophobes to see the light. By the way, the reason he has to use the word xenophobia instead of racism is that, as we have been chronicling for years, many black ‘new Americans’ don’t like our longtime African Americans (and vice versa).

The same goes for African Americans and Hispanics. Nor is there any love lost between Asians and African Americans.

On the Left, while the anarchists are busy tearing down America and American culture, moneybags like Bloomberg are working away as Robbins describes:

President Trump has expanded his immigration ban to affect vital U.S. industries like tech, manufacturing and hospitality through the end of 2020. The latest executive order signed on June 22 further restricts immigration, following a less drastic measure made in April. This will slow our recovery with states now reopening, but it’s no surprise.

His platform of cracking down on immigration has been unflinchingly consistent. He has blocked immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries, dismantled our refugee resettlement program, separated migrant children from their parents and attempted to end DACA.

But here’s the ugly truth that Americans forget: Blaming immigrants for bringing diseases, taking our jobs, making us unsafe and threatening American culture has been part of our politics since the country’s founding. It doesn’t matter that none of these impending immigration disasters have come to pass. Or that immigration is America’s greatest global competitive advantage. With each generation, new leaders claim that today’s immigrants are somehow different — less able to assimilate, more likely to take our jobs or commit crimes. And we believe them.

So why do we keep getting duped?

Both the social science literature and forward-looking leaders in deeply conservative parts of the country have an answer: It’s a mistake to focus just on President Trump’s most anti-immigrant rhetoric. We also need to focus on the millions of Americans — and not just the most xenophobic ones — who think the president may have a point.

As a country, we’re broadly in favor of immigration, but we’re also incredibly nervous about changes to our culture and our communities. When we’re unsure of what to believe, we look first to our local networks. Studies show that when we’re given information that contradicts what our friends and neighbors believe, we actually double down and become more strident. The more facts we throw at our opponents, the more polarized we become.

How we beat Rep. Steve King:

A prime example is the conservative Iowa district, which had been represented for 17 years by Congress’s most stridently anti-immigrant member: Steve King. To change the tenor of the debate at home, local residents took the initiative and formed a group called One Siouxland to “welcome and support every Siouxland resident” and help all “understand, appreciate and embrace our changing demographics.”

Together with New American Economy, One Siouxland wrote a strategic integration plan to establish community resource centers, a leadership development academy, small business loans and dozens of other programs and policies focused on giving underrepresented populations a seat at the table.

Most recently, One Siouxland used locally produced art to host dialogues between Trump voters and non-Trump voters about American identity. This welcoming attitude has allowed more businesses of all types to invest there, including some of the food processing plants [Meat packers changing America!—ed]now keeping our food supply chain functioning.

And now a district that was the stronghold of the anti-immigrant movement has said enough, and the business community successfully backed an opponent who recently defeated King in the Republican primary election.

Read it all. 

See how Bloomberg’s money is working to change your minds while he and the hundreds of businesses he represents are changing America by changing the people.

Candace Owens Asks: What Does Black America Want?

“Do we want to be able to point to the white boogeyman?”

This is required watching today!

I heard Ms. Owens speak in person in 2018 and she is a remarkable woman.

Here she is yesterday in a 17 minute video on the Candace Owens Show at Prager University.  Hat tip: Paul

She says what most of you are thinking, but can’t say!

Help keep Prager U. alive and on the worldwide web by making a donation.

Changing the subject (a little).

Just now when I went to Merriam Webster to confirm the spelling of ‘boogeyman,’ I was stunned to see this sentence example given for the use of the word.

Are on-line dictionaries fueling the left’s narrative?  It seems so.

Here is a screenshot! Far-right fringe groups!

The link sends readers to a story on conspiracy theories surrounding the death of George Floyd. The article’s author and Merriam Webster want to be sure readers get the message that Soros has had nothing to do with the recent anti-police protest riots.

Recent Examples on the Web?  WTH! Now just for fun, search “boogeyman” on the web and see if the Soros reference even comes up.

 

 

As Immigration Slows due to Chinese Virus, Federal Employees at USCIS Could be Furloughed

“These are good-paying jobs, these are federal employees with good health insurance, good salaries and good retirement benefits. This is not like losing a low wage job.”

(Gabriel Pedreira, regional union organizer for the American Federation of Government Employees)

 

That is if Congress doesn’t move swiftly to bail out the agency that processes applications for citizenship among other things.

The Dems must be going nuts because this is just the season when their push to get more Democrat voters through the citizenship process in time for the November election is usually in full swing.

The story is from the Vermont Digger, a publication I highly recommend to readers interested in what is happening in the people’s republic of Vermont.  (Hat tip: Brenda)

Vermont USCIS employees face furlough due to budget shortfall

 

Thousands of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services employees across the country, including some based in Vermont, may be furloughed next month due to a shortfall in the federal agency’s budget.

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused a “dramatic” decrease in revenue the agency relies on, generated by applications and petitions related to citizenship, according to a USCIS spokesperson. In response, 13,400 USCIS employees nationwide may be furloughed as a cost-saving measure.

Vermont is home to one of five USCIS service centers that are responsible for processing millions of citizenship applications, according to a 2017 report to Congress. The agency employees people primarily in St. Albans and Essex.

During the 2016 fiscal year of the five service centers, Vermont’s had both the highest allowed employee spots of 1,021 and the highest number of working staff of 959 employees.

Union organizer Pedreira

Gabriel Pedreira, a regional organizer for the American Federation of Government Employees, the union that represents USCIS employees said the situation for Vermont is particularly dire.

[….]

According to the USCIS spokesperson, the shortfall is due to a projected drop of 61% in citizenship applications and petitions through the end of the 2020 fiscal year.

[….]

Cross-border travel into the United States has slowed drastically during the Covid-19 crisis, as travel restrictions have been imposed — including the partial closure of the U.S.-Canada border.

[….]

Pedreira said in a time of economic decline in the United States, the loss of pay for USCIS employees affects more than just those workers — it affects the entire economy.

“These are good-paying jobs, these are federal employees with good health insurance, good salaries and good retirement benefits. This is not like losing a low wage job,” Pedreira said. “So these are employees who because they make a good salary contribute to the local economy.”

Who cares about the rest of you low wage nonessential workers hurt by the Chinese Virus—these are good jobs!

Biden Could Choose Atlanta Mayor with Soros Connections for VEEP Slot

“[R]evolution is not a one-time event.”

(Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms)

 

I’m sure you have heard the possibility elsewhere, but just in case here is a piece this week published at Liberty Nation about Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms who would fit the Biden ticket perfectly as a black woman who checks all the boxes—age (she is young), race, gender, geographic location.

And, definitely more attractive than her fellow Georgian Stacey Abrams!  I can’t see ol’Joe nuzzling Abrams’ ear, can you?

See an AP story yesterday that does discuss Bottoms as a choice.

Dear Joe, Please pick Susan Rice for your running mate! It would be so much fun for those of us who followed her career with Obama!

Another option for Biden, says the AP reporter Julie Pace, is Susan Rice.

I would love to see that because Rice has a very checkered history with the Obama Administration that would surely create (fun) fireworks during the campaign.

Bottoms, I think, is a more difficult candidate for the Trump people to attack.

You might have seen her impassioned plea to looters and rioters to go home” in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

Her connection to the Soros Open Borders agenda is one area of vulnerability.

America firsters worry about more migration to America, but so do many educated black voters who understand that more immigrants depress wages for all Americans at the lower rungs of society.

 

Could Atlanta’s Soros-Tied Mayor Bottoms Be Biden’s Pick For VP?

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has been making a lot of noise lately, and it looks like it might pay off. From her clash with Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) over Coronavirus to her attacks against President Trump over the death of George Floyd, Mayor Bottoms has virtue signaled herself right into the national spotlight as a strong option for Biden’s running mate.

Radical Agenda

Bottoms is very much a progressive Georgia politician in the same mold as Stacey Abrams, the former state representative who narrowly lost to Kemp in the 2018 governor’s race and is very publicly pining to be Biden’s VP choice. Throughout her tenure, Bottoms has taken an antagonistic approach against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement efforts to capture and deport illegal aliens in Atlanta and federal police operations in her city.

This is not mere policy for Bottoms, but a part of what she has described as a “revolution” at two forums hosted by agents of notorious globalist billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.

The Concordia Annual Summit is a yearly gathering of globalists with uniquely intimate ties to Soros. The progressive money lord first publicly discussed his infamous pledge to “invest” $500 million to support refugee resettlement at the group’s 2016 meeting. Bottoms appeared at a symposium at the 2018 Concordia Summit titled “Cities & the Private Sector Take the Lead for Refugees & Migrants.” Open Societies Foundation exec Dr. Colleen Thouez, who is listed as “Director, Welcoming and Integrated Societies ” on the OSF website, introduced the mayor. Immediately after Thouez handed the microphone over to her, Bottoms said the following:

“As we spoke this morning there is a quote from one of my favorite writers Audre Lord that kept playing in my mind, and it was that revolution is not a one-time event. And I think of that often, especially in the work that we are doing throughout our various cities in ways that may seem to be small in scale but really are a part of a larger conversation and a larger revolution, if you will, as it relates to how we address our issues of immigration and migration.”

Virginia “Coonman” Lectures Us!

The nerve of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam!

On Thursday, after ordering a statue of Robert E. Lee be removed, he had the gall to lecture Virginians and indeed all Americans about being racists.

Northam’s Medical School yearbook page!  Think about this! Medical School, not High School!

 

See what Virginia patriot Catherine Trauernicht had to say to the Governor in the Bull Elephant, a Virginia publication for right of center Virginians.  Her entire column is here, and below are the opening paragraphs.

An aside:  To my reader who asked yesterday what can ‘we’ do about a troubled America, my answer is find some thing ‘you’ can do every day, even if it seems tiny and insignificant, and do it.  Don’t worry about what others are doing, ask yourself at the end of each day what have I done to preserve the America we love.

Writing guest columns like this one is something you can do.  But, first, if your state or county doesn’t even have a news site like the Bull Elephant, get one!

Ralph Northam’s gall

During his press conference yesterday, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam displayed shameless gall as he scolded Virginians specifically and Americans in general about their racism.

“Today we are here to be honest about our past and talk about our future,” Northam declared. “We have to confront where we’ve been in order to shape where we’re going.” THIS coming from the man who first apologized for a photograph on his medical school yearbook page, and 24 hours later said no one — not even he — could prove whether he was in blackface or the KKK white hood.

During a bizarre press conference in February 2019, Gov. Northam told us how difficult it was to get shoe polish off his face after entering a Michael Jackson dance contest. He even prepared to demonstrate the moonwalk dance routine until his wife whispered that it would not be appropriate under the circumstances. All the while, he was trying to convince Virginians that he didn’t know how the offensive photograph landed on his own yearbook page or how he acquired the nickname “Coonman.”

This is the same Ralph Northam who, during yesterday’s press conference, said, “The eyes can’t see what the mind doesn’t know.” I guess that’s why he keeps us in the dark about the yearbook page.

 

Vandals have in recent days defaced Richmond’s monument to Robt. E. Lee. Note the KKK scrawled on the base.

 

The Governor went on to speak about removing the statue of Robert E. Lee on Monument Avenue in Richmond, calling it “a symbol to shore up the cause of those who didn’t want unity after the Civil War,” those who wanted to “keep the system in place.” What the Governor didn’t say was that the militant wing of the Democrat Party at that time was the Ku Klux Klan, whose uniforms were white robes, like the Klan photograph on Ralph Northam’s yearbook page. It was the southern Democrat Party who wanted the “system” to survive.
