We are coming up on a busy and potentially momentous week. Congress is returning to Washington, which is always a dangerous proposition. As the famous quote goes, “No man’s life, liberty or property is safe when Congress is in session.” While Congress is in session, it at best does nothing helpful and at worst is destructive to America, this week we will see one of the worst proposals America has ever been faced with. For several reasons, this issue will be at the forefront this week. What is the issue and why will it be so visible this week? The issue is amnesty. There are several reasons why it will be in the forefront this week. First, you will see Barack Obama pushing the issue. He will be talking about amnesty, gun control gay rights and anything else he can think of to avoid talking about the most important issue of all. The most important issue of all is the economy. Friday’s jobs report was a disaster. While the cooked numbers for unemployment are falling, the numbers behind Obama’s faux unemployment rate are shocking. 90 million Americans have left the workforce. Out of a nation of about 310 million, 90 million adults are not in the work force. Our work force is now the same size it was in 1979. If those who have given up looking for work were included in the unemployment calculations, the rate would be near 12%. So Obama will talk about amnesty this week. He will have a lot of help from the so-called “Gang of 8” as well as Washington Republican insiders who are pushing amnesty. Amnesty is being pushed this week so its supporters can try to ram it through Congress without any examination. This will be another case of a 1000 page bill that Congressmen and Senators will vote on without knowing what is in the bill. But here is what the amnesty advocates won’t tell you. They will trot out the children of the illegals many of whom were brought to this country as small children and many who only know America. However most of the illegals are adults. Most of them are not well-educated adults. Compulsory education in Mexico only runs through the 6th grade. Can you imagine trying to navigate our complex society with only a 6th grade education? Then throw in the fact it is not even an American education. In 1986, we had amnesty. The figure that is thrown out for this amnesty is 11 million. What we learned from 1986 is that they number of people who will apply for amnesty is far larger than what Congress expects. Even now with just the discussion of amnesty border crossings have increased significantly. We also learned from 1986, border security will never happen. But the real danger to America is the cost amnesty will have. Our nation teeters on the edge of bankruptcy thanks to liberal spending policies and amnesty will be like throwing gasoline on a fire. In economic terms, the value illegals have to the economy is that they can be paid a lower wage than is legal. Because of their status, illegals can’t really complain about this and employers can take advantage of them. Once they become legal, they will be able to demand minimum wage, benefits and the other perks of employment. In economic terms, they are no longer worth the cost. What does that mean? That means large numbers of them will end up on welfare. Even now, though it is illegal, significant numbers of illegal aliens receive welfare. This number will explode after amnesty. We will see the number of people in this nation who are not in the workforce expand from 90 million to well over 100 million or perhaps even higher. 10 to 20 million recipients of amnesty will flood the rolls of Obamacare, driving the cost of that program to the point of where it bankrupts the nation. The week that is coming is going to focus not on the economy but on amnesty. We must tell our Senators and Congressmen in no uncertain terms amnesty must be voted down. And while we are at it we must remind them, “It’s the economy, stupid!”

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Clinton Donor And Tax Cheat Tied To Russia

“Do as we say, not as we do.”

That seems to be the slogan for Hillary Clinton and her political allies, and it’s especially apt in light of new information about one of Clinton’s largest campaign donors.

While the left is still trying to attack President Trump and his family over unproven business dealings and largely debunked connections to Russia, a new report indicates that it was Hillary Clinton’s team who were doing those exact things.

“Fox News has learned that one of the top donors to the ‘Hillary Victory Fund’ (HVF) in 2016 was a Los Angeles-based attorney who is alleged to have misused company funds to create his own $22 million real estate portfolio,” that outlet reported on Thursday.

“He has also been considered by California to be one of the state’s biggest tax cheats, and allegedly has ties to the (Russian) Kremlin,” Fox continued.

The man’s name is Edgar Sargsyan. His deep pockets greatly benefited Clinton’s campaign, with contributions of at least $250,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund in 2016.

He was also in charge of an elite fundraising dinner to benefit Clinton, where donors paid $100,000 per couple just to attend the ritzy event. But in true Clinton fashion, the money apparently went missing.

Sargsyan is now “being sued by his former company for allegedly diverting those funds to start his own real estate company,” according to Fox.

Now, people are asking hard questions about Clinton’s buddy Sargsyan, including whether his contributions were part of a pay-to-play scheme and if he had shady connections to foreign governments.

“Nobody gave to the Hillary Victory Fund out of the goodness of their heart or some generalized desire to help 33 random state parties,” pointed out attorney Dan Backer from the Committee to Defend the President.

“They did so to buy access and curry influence — something the Clintons have been selling for nearly three decades in and out of government,” he continued.

Trying to buy political influence is sadly common, especially when it comes to the Clintons. What is raising more red flags than normal, however, is the evidence that Sargsyan is no run-of-the-mill campaign donor.

“The really scary question is, what did this particular donor with this strange web of connections hope to buy for his quarter-million dollars?” Backer asked Fox News.

That web of connections is strange indeed.

The Committee to Defend the President is now alleging that SBK, a major Sargsyan-linked company “is an investment firm that is affiliated with United Arab Emirates president, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and its international affiliate has business interests in Russia,” according to Fox.

“Among its dealings was a bid to finance $850 million for a major bridge project to connect Crimea with Russia,” the group claims.

“He worked for SBK, and SBK appears to have bid on some Crimean/Russian bridge project,” Backer said. “That’s usually an indicator of political favor and connections.”

It raises several chilling questions: Was Sargsyan paying a quarter million dollars to Clinton for political favors, and — more disturbingly — was that money actually from sources in Russia in order to smooth the way for its construction plans?

Nobody knows for sure. What is clear, however, is that there is a pattern of dirty money surrounding the Clintons, with the “Uranium One” and “Clinton Foundation” scandals just two of the most well-known examples.

“It reinforces how fast and loose the Clinton machine was when it came to ‘Hoovering up’ these megadonor checks, not just from questionable Hollywood and Wall Street elites but potentially from foreign influence peddlers using who knows what money,” Backer told Fox News.

“It reinforces the need to take a long hard look at not just the unlawful money laundering process, but the way in which they were solicited as well,” he continued. “The Clintons have never shown a great deal of concern for whomever it was cutting the checks — whether it’s foreign influence peddlers or Hollywood smut peddlers like Harvey Weinstein.”

If those claims are even partially true, then America dodged a bullet in November of 2016 — and it’s worth keeping the pile of foreign-connected Clinton scandals in mind the next time the left tries desperately to tie Donald Trump to Russia. Perhaps they should look in the mirror.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
