Bend over, here it comes again:


If Republicans gain control of Congress, Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) wants more guest-worker visas for high-tech and low-skilled workers in addition to a piecemeal immigration reform.

Hensarling, the House Financial Services Committee Chair whom the pro-amnesty Wall Street Journal touted as the “leading candidate to eventually succeed John Boehner as Speaker,” would “like to see immigration reform that allows more H-1B visas for high-tech workers and also creates a ‘vibrant guest-worker program’ for low-skill workers who want to come here to work in agriculture.” The Journal also noted that Hensarling “believes a good guest-worker program is a form of border security because it allows law enforcement to focus on catching criminals and terrorists: ‘Less hay to find the needles.'” He doesn’t think a “physical wall” is needed “over the entire length of the border.”


As Breitbart News has extensively documented, there is not a shortage of American workers in either the high-tech or low-skilled sectors. And everyone from Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) to Vice President Joe Biden has recognized the importance of high-tech jobs for social mobility. For instance, Biden spoke about the importance of tech and IT jobs in providing “pathways” to the middle class for Americans trying to move up the economic ladder, which will be reduced if there are massive increases in guest-worker visas.”

And Ron Hira, an H-1B expert and public policy professor at Howard University, “has said tech jobs have traditionally provided ‘people who come from working-class backgrounds” a “way of getting into the middle class and the professional class,” and that will be “cut off” if Congress passes legislation to massively increase the number of guest-workers who are allowed into the U.S.

He said this even though there is a surplus of American high-tech workers, and companies like Microsoft have lobbied for massive increases in guest-worker visas while laying off 18,000 American workers.

One of the issues that has been very effective for GOP challengers in both the primaries and in the general election campaign has been opposition to illegal immigration and amnesty. Obama’s manufactured immigration crisis backfired, increasing calls for better border security.

This should be a no-brainer for Republicans. The GOP base and a majority of independents want immigration reform that will stop the constant flood of illegal immigrants across our southern border. Democrats see both short-term and long-term benefits for themselves in immigration “reform” that basically just legalizes every illegal immigrant already in the country.

So why does the GOP leadership keep trying to pass immigration reform that their own voters don’t want?

Whose side are they on?

    I KNEW the dumbass money-grubbing GOPe would figure out a way to screw up the election! Way to make the base stay at home!!!!

    • DeniseVB says:

      Nah, I’ll still vote for the R’s, taking back the Senate and keeping the House will put the Tea Party back in business. Won’t look so raycist if they’re storming the Capitol if the GOP’s in control of it. I’d hit the Mall with a million like minds again.

      Oh, and Obama’s Plan B if he loses ….. is to veto everything and anything they pass, because he can. :stomping foot:

      • votermom says:

        Oh I’m still voting R. Just hope there are enough Tea party senators in the new senate.

        • lyn says:

          I’ll be voting R until the Democratic Party no longer has Obama’s stench.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I just ran across a Freedomworks (Tea Party) poll to “Pick the Speaker of the House”. It must be an old one with almost 200k votes with Eric Cantor still one of the choices…lol. Anyhoo, Trey Gowdy is running away with it ! My people 😀

      • Constance says:

        Yeah, but Obama will look like an obstructionist while he vetos every bill. And it will force many Dems to vote on a lot of things they would prefer not to go on the record about.

  2. leslie says:

    If anyone sat through the evil, tasteless, disgusting tearing apart of Hillary this morning on Morning Joe, I give you credit for having a strong stomach and stronger constitution than I. I’ve never heard anything quite as disgusting as these purported grown-ups trying to sanitize their revulsion toward a person who somehow, I guess, threatens their world. I literally found myself scrubbing out my ears in the shower afterward. Really if this continues, I will be forced to vote for her (as Klown had already suggested he might). After Benghazi, I didn’t think I could do that. And it saddened and angered me. But their vile behavior and disgusting conversation – smugly discussing the way Hillary (and Bill) treated Monica after the fact – was unbelievable. We know who they are trying to blackball, but WHO are they trying to push forward? Who is pulling the strings here?

    • Poor Monica, she was just an innocent on her knees blowing a guy in a closet. She had no idea what she was doing or why. It ruined one of her favorite dresses because she refused to swallow. And those bullies…..

      • leslie says:

        I nearly spit my coffee out with your response!!

      • The Klown says:

        Then she saved the stained dress. She didn’t have it cleaned.


        • foxyladi14 says:

          It was for her Hope Chest. 😆

        • Lulu says:

          Because she is fucking nuts. I thought for a long time she was just a dip shit but no she is nuts.

        • sleepyhead says:

          I think she was advised to save the dress either by Linda Tripp or Lucianne Goldberg, both of whom were “confidantes” during her starry-eyed infatuated phase. They had their reasons which are obvious in retrospect.

          • DeniseVB says:

            I felt bad for Linda during that time, the media was very cruel to her and SNL had John Goodman play her in skits. I think a reputable plastic surgeon donated his services to transform her into a poster child for plastic surgery, she looked ravishing after her makeover.

            I don’t remember feminists coming to her defense? Nor do I remember SNL having Tracy Morgan play Michelle Obama (though he did play Whitney Houston’s daughter) in their skits (they always used beautiful black lady guest hosts).

        • Constance says:

          Saving the dress was smart. If she didn’t do that they would have gotten away with saying she was a nut case that was bothering Clinton after he told her to get lost.

    • Anthony says:

      I saw it too, and started cursing them both. Morning Joe’s content is owned by Valerie Jarrett, a frequent guest and confidant of disgusting Mika Brzezinski. What else would you expect?

      • foxyladi14 says:

        I never watch it. 😀

      • DeniseVB says:

        Morning Joe is the result of Al Sharpton’s temper tantrum over Imus’ (or one of his “sidekicks”) bad joke “nappy headed ho’s” referencing a black ladies’ basketball team. It was bad, but Imus and his team apologized over and over and over and over, got forgiveness from the ladies and their school, but MSNBC dropped them anyhow (Thanks TAwana AL). Then they ran a bunch of “try out” shows a week(s) at a time for months and somehow settled on Joe and Mika? Joe was always the resident MSNBC token conservative with Scarborough Country. Gah, anyone remember Hannity and Colmes ?

    • driguana says:

      Probably George Soros and the top 50 Obama bundlers (mostly lawyers, bankers and entertainment business types) from the 2008 election are pulling lots of strings right now. Given the fact that Obama was such an administrative bungler, they need to find someone else who they feel is more confident in bringing about their intended progressive changes. These string pullers won’t back Elizabeth Warren although they may get behind Bernie Sanders as he has the appeal that best fits their media agenda.

    • piper says:

      Payback for Panetta telling a few truths about the won and his administration.

    • Constance says:

      Well we can’t guess who they are trying to push forward because we would look for people who have experience that might be relevant to running a country. The Progs will be pushing forward some absurd intellectual elitist so we will never see them coming until they try to install the person and then we will all sit their with our mouths open thinking WTF?! You could probably guess that the new Prog will be Ivy indoctrinated.

  3. From The ; Case in point: in late February, the Department of Labor awarded $205,977 in back wages and liquidated damages to former student guestworkers at McDonald’s .
    GUEST WORKERS FOR MCDONALD’s? Are these jobs that Americans refuse to do?

    • Somebody says:

      No they’re not jobs that Americans refuse. American teens usually work in fast food. Hey I’m not a genius, but I do believe unemployment is quite high for teens…..hmmmmm.

      I had no idea McDonalds was importing “guest workers”. Good grief, why?

      • Jadzia says:

        That is ridiculous. Not only do teens AND some adults need that kind of work in this day and age (teens because college costs a million bajillion dollars a year, adults because who really believes that the unemployment rate is under 7%?), fast-food entry-level jobs are an excellent place for teens/students/young adults to learn about how to be a decent employee. Skills like, you know, interviewing without your mom there, showing up on time on your own accord, doing the best job you can regardless of whether somebody is standing over you, when to take the initiative and when to hold back and yes, even standing up for yourself in the workplace. Flipping burgers might not be what you want to do for your entire life, but working at a Micky D’s type job DOES provide more generally applicable skills that you just can’t learn in school. I guess the franchisees would rather have immigrants who are desperate and more easily pushed around.

    • Somebody says:

      That’s the tip of the iceberg. A local news station in Florida found thousands of illegals on the voter roles in one flipping county a few years ago.

  6. Somebody says:

    Hold on to your hats folks TPTB plan to flood us with more immigrants than our country can support, no matter which party wins the upcoming election.

    The flood of immigrants, both legal and illegal are depressing wages. The future for our children and grandchildren does not look bright, this is national suicide and both parties are guilty.

  7. HELENK3 says:

    this is interesting. check out the insurance companies and ebola

    • Lulu says:

      That has been happening for a few weeks. The insurers have been sending out Ebola exclusion riders and that is one of the reasons the CDC freaked. Lloyds and some Asian insurer developed an Ebola insurance product and the premium is sure to bankrupt most companies and government entities (airports, stadiums, ports). The airlines for example can’t afford Ebola liability or clean up/property damage insurance. One Ebola sick passenger with explosive vomiting or diarrhea and the plane has to be taken off service and stripped of its interior plus the cost of disposing it all and that doesn’t include liability to passengers. It is ruinous. The WH doesn’t care.

    Canadian terrorist’s mom involved in immigration scandal

  11. threewickets says:

    There is so much rhetoric out there on immigration from all sides. But the basic *economic* impact of immigration on US employment and wages is straightforward: it will be bad for existing American wage earners and unemployed, and it could (but not definitely, in some sectors) be good for American investors and capital owners/extractors. The end.

    Al Sharpton shows himself again

    • DandyTIger says:

      The premise that groups are inherently victims is in itself bigotry towards those groups. That they as a party have appointed themselves as caretakers of groups they see as lesser, needing extra help, is bigotry. I’m sure there are the best of intentions by some of the elite Dems out there, though it seems obvious that most are riddled with guilt over their status. With that as the psychological basis of a world view, it’s impossible to think logically and clearly. You have to think of you group as good and the surrounding, larger, group, as inherently evil. Otherwise your group doing the rescuing would have nothing to rescue. IOW, they’re fucking nuts.

      So talking about the most likely scenario given the police account, evidence, and some witnesses is smearing? Showing and talking about the strong-arm robbery Mike Brown committed is smearing? Why? What is that about?

    just wondering if the impeachment procedure were to start would it be against backtrack or valjar?

  23. gram cracker says:

    Think the lame stream media will jump on this – or are they too busy following the Palins?

    “In a recent statement, Michael Brown’s mother asked that her son not be part of self-serving business or political actions as she pleaded that he be remembered for the good. A reported assault and theft this past weekend may dramatically underscore that sentiment.

    It happened Saturday night, October 18th, at about 8:15 pm in the parking lot of Red’s BBQ. It`s the corner of Canfield and West Florissant, just blocks from where Michael Brown was shot and killed.

    Police sources tell us Brown`s Grandmother, Pearlie Gordon, along with Brown`s Cousin Tony Petty, were selling t-shirts and other Michael Brown merchandise.

    A police report describes a car pulling up and several people getting out. One of those people, was reported to be Michael Brown`s Mom, Lesley McSpadden. A witness described McSpadden yelling ‘You can`t sell this s%$&” One of the relatives, who was selling, reportedly demanded McSpadden show a document proving she had a patent.

    The police report says that`s when an unidentified person with McSpadden assaulted Petty so violently that it resulted in a 911 call. A witness tells Fox 2 that the weapon was a metal pipe or pole. The suspect reportedly struck Petty in the face. Medics then took him to Christian Northeast Hospital. The witness said the assault suspect grabbed merchandise and a box of cash believed to contain about $1,400.

    It appears surveillance cameras could have captured the fight and be part of police evidence. Police report no arrests at this time.”

  25. gram cracker says:

    If USA citizens with STEM degrees do not currently have the educational knowledge that companies like Microsoft and Zuckerburg/Facebook say they need, then these companies should partner with universities to design majors and course work that will produce graduates with the knowledge, skills and abilities to be employable in STEM jobs in the USA.

    Back in the 1980’s several paper industry related businesses worked with some universities and colleges in Ohio to help design majors tailored to produce graduates with the skills needed by the paper industries.

    Some people major in areas they are passionate about even though the likelihood of earning a decent living is low, like performing arts. However, most people who go to college do so with the hope and expectation that a college degree will help them achieve at least a middle class lifestyle. If universities aren’t producing employable graduates, then they need to modify their programs and degree requirements to meet the demands of the marketplace.

    Also, the goose that laid the golden eggs is being killed off by unions, environmental extremists of the Democratic Party, EPA overreach and the IRS who have all pitched in to help drive manufacturing out of this country.
