Regardless of whether you like or support the Trump administration – you should at least be ideologically honest when you speak about them.
For the CEO’s and other public figures (like Amazon’s Jeff Bezos) who are suddenly finding their ‘moral voice’ and grandstanding about how they represent a completely different set of values than this Administration …. I can only feel pure, unadulterated disgust.
The kind of disgust you feel when you overturn rock in the woods and see a mass of maggots on a decaying rat….yep, that’s pretty close to the feeling.
Hypocrites and Cowards though?? Yeah — read on…..
In the interest of setting the table – here’s a good link for you to read Bezos’ comments.
And – here’s the National Review article (they have more than one up) that actually dissects what the Trump administration just did regarding immigration – and how that compares to previous Presidential Admin’s – please read it when you have time:
In a previous life, I worked for a large company who was contracted by the US Govt. This company was tapped to provide (among other things) — software development services.
As it turns out – we aren’t allowed to hire non US citizens. But the way we worked around that – was to have sub-tier partners who WERE allowed to bring in non-Citizens — hire those who held a H1B VISA** …/these immigrants could fill that need — one of the reasons we did this was because there aren’t NEARLY as many US kids growing up to be software developers …. as there are in places like India and China.
So with that brief reference – here’s a USA Today article that lays the H1B Visa angle out for us:
So let me take a stab at this….
Bezos’ syrupy sermon about immigration is nothing more than a Holier-Than-Thou Cowardly Hypocrite who wants to protect profits….he didn’t open his festering little mouth when Obama signed off on an order that sends Cubans back home after trying to escape an open Communist dictatorship, right?
I didn’t hear anyone protesting that move (HENCE —> COWARDLY))
I guess those folks should have brushed up on their “.net” and other programming skills … and maybe then their lives would have registered with his holiness……(excerpt from Bezos’ rant is shown below)…..
We’re a nation of immigrants whose diverse backgrounds, ideas, and points of view have helped us build and invent as a nation for over 240 years. No nation is better at harnessing the energies and talents of immigrants. It’s a distinctive competitive advantage for our country—one we should not weaken.
So let’s take a look at some facts about this move….this is an excerpt from the National Review article linked above (emphasis added):
….the order temporarily halts refugee admissions for 120 days to improve the vetting process, then caps refugee admissions at 50,000 per year. Outrageous, right? Not so fast. Before 2016, when Obama dramatically ramped up refugee admissions, Trump’s 50,000 stands roughly in between a typical year of refugee admissions in George W. Bush’s two terms and a typical year in Obama’s two terms.
Maybe someone who’s protesting this can give us a solid, logical reason why we shouldn’t check into the backgrounds for people who are coming from countries brimming with Islamic radicalization….seriously….why WOULDN’T you want to check on backgrounds and apply some common sense here?
Or maybe they take the same “come one come ALL!” approach deciding who can come over for their dinner parties? Or who can date their daughters? ((hence —> HYPOCRITICAL))
Hell – truth be told most of these protesting people (paid by Soros much?) would put more scrutiny in who they allow as a “FACEBOOK FRIEND” than they would for who comes into the country and what they do afterward …..
So……what the Trump Administration is doing can be summed up in two statements
We’re finally putting some common sense vetting into place with ISLAMIC immigrants … and we should (We should also stop destabilizing and bombing Islamic nations into rubble — among other things — but THIS IS A GOOD START)
He’s setting an annual quota on immigration that’s no different than what Bush and Obama typically had
Let me make a mild prediction — this is about to BLOW UP in the media even more than what we’ve seen….
The Trump admin is messing around with the profit margins – especially margins for the IT industry (not typically R-Party friendly)
You are about to see a media blitz that would have you believe that the Iron Curtain has come down all over again
Don’t fall for the hype — do your research — don’t allow the traditional media to control how you think and above all….continue to resist Marxism
**The H1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign workers in speciality occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise in specialized fields.
