Grassley tweets at Trump:
Call me on H1B visas

The Hill, by Cyra Master

Original Article

Posted By:Lalo, 3/20/2017 3:10:00 AM

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) tweeted at President Trump Sunday evening, trying to get his attention and support on a bipartisan bill on a certain kind of visa. Grassley tweeted after a CBS News “60 Minutes” report on the H1B visa program that allows foreign workers with “specialty occupations” to work in the United States. The “60 Minutes” report focused on American workers who’ve had to train their replacements before losing their jobs. Grassley seized on the broadcast news program’s report to tout a bill he’s sponsoring with Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) that he says would “correct this injustice.” In subsequent tweets,

Comments:
Ole Chuck is quite the Tweeter. I wonder if he picked up his texting style from his grandkids.

Numerous newspaper articles over the years have exposed this gross H1B visa abuse to the detriment of US citizens. Chuckie didn´t do anything then so why does he suddenly hyperventilate now?

This is silly. I would be very surprised if a US Senator couldn´t call up the White House and get a meeting with the President very easily.

H1Bs are BS. My wife worked at a world-wide engineering company and they brought many Indian engineers into the USA to work under H1Bs - why? Because they get paid less, of course.

H1B visas infected my company and began pushing out American Engineers and IT workers, replacing them with low-cost types, who dared not complain about anything for fear of expulsion.
Does anyone remember 1864??

Obama Political Spying Scandal: Trump
Associates Were Not the First Targets
National Review, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article
Posted By: Lalo- 4/19/2017 1:57:24     Post Reply
In 2011, Dennis Kucinich was still a Democratic congressman from Ohio. But he was not walking in lockstep with President Obama — at least not on Libya. True to his anti-war leanings, Kucinich was a staunch opponent of Obama’s unauthorized war against the Qaddafi regime. Kucinich’s very public efforts included trying to broker negotiations between the administration and the Qaddafi regime, to whom the White House was turning a deaf ear. It was in that context that he took a call in his Washington office from Saif al-Islam Qaddafi, the ruler’s son and confidant. Four years later, as he recalled

LEWISTON, Maine — Richard Rodrigue stood in the back of a banquet hall, watching his blond-haired, blue-eyed daughter mingle among her high school classmates. These teenagers speak dozens of languages, and hail from a dozen African nations. They fled brutal civil war, famine, oppressive regimes to find themselves here, at a pre-prom fete in this once-dying New England mill town, revived by an influx of some 7,500 immigrants over the last 16 years. Rodrigue smiled and waved at his daughter, proud she is a part of it. "It will help her in life," he said. "The world is not all

Led by President Trump, top administration officials on Tuesday blamed what they called lax immigration enforcement for the rise of MS-13, the bloody crime cartel spawned in the streets and jails of Los Angeles, and promised a stronger federal response. Tweeting before dawn, Trump called his predecessor weak on illegal immigration and said, without evidence, that the Obama administration “allowed” the Mara Salvatrucha gang, also known as MS-13, to form in America. “The weak illegal immigration policies of the Obama Admin. allowed bad MS 13 gangs to form in cities across U.S. We are removing them fast!” the president wrote on Twitter

How Trump´s foreign policy team is

The Trump administration came into power facing vexing foreign policy challenges ranging from a decaying global order to transnational terrorism. These problems are compounded by the fact that Americans are weary after decades of war in distant corners of the Middle East. To succeed, the administration has to balance competing imperatives: reaffirming alliances, engaging in transactional bargains with other great powers, and relentlessly pushing back on adversaries. Despite all the sound and fury, the Trump team is already demonstrating an ability to master these complex challenges in difficult times. The Democratic

Amid reports that Fox News is getting ready to announce Bill O’Reilly won’t be returning to the airwaves, Matt Drudge has taken to his seldom-used Twitter. Seemingly, he came to elegantly bury Caesar O’Reilly. Okay, there was a little praise, but it mostly reads like an obituary for the embattled host’s career. And when Drudge speaks on something like this, you ought to listen. [video] O’Reilly has been accused of sexual harassment and has reportedly settled with at least five women for at least $13 million. Calls for Fox to drop him have been loud and clear as physical demonstrations have happened

White House: Trump’s call to

President Donald Trump’s call congratulating Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the referendum vote consolidating his power was not necessarily an endorsement or acceptance of the results, the White House said Tuesday. The outcome of the vote, which would amend Turkey’s constitution to grant the country’s autocratic president significantly more power, is being contested, and Trump surprised some in Washington on Monday when the White House said he had called Erdogan to congratulate him. Experts and other American leaders, including some Republicans, have responded to the vote by framing it as hugely damaging to democracy in Turkey. Speaking with reporters

Time for Trump to Triangulate
National Review, by Fred Bauer    Original Article

Washington is a world distorted by a magnifying glass, where minor slips morph into catastrophic falls, and a winning news cycle swells into a victory for all the ages. When overstimulation causes the jaded to speak in ever more extravagant terms, we should be careful about making mountains of molehills. That said, the Trump administration has hit some obstacles in its early weeks. It deferred many of the president’s signature policy items (on immigration and trade, for instance) in order to focus on health-care and tax reform. Some on Capitol Hill might like this outcome, as it minimizes the more

The gunman who randomly executed an elderly Cleveland resident in cold blood — and then posted footage of the killing to Facebook — was a self-described “monster” who tortured animals as a kid, a report says. Steve Stephens, 37, reportedly took his anger out on his pet parakeet while growing up, as well as other creatures that his family owned throughout his childhood. He ultimately shares an eerie similarity with serial killers, such as Jeffrey Dahmer and “Boston Strangler” Albert DeSalvo, who also abused their pets as youngsters. “That kid was not normal as we as normal people know it

Krauthammer on Trump’s Tax Returns:
This Issue Is a ‘Dead Parrot’
Mediaite, by Josh Feldman    Original Article
Posted By: Lalo- 4/18/2017 12:03:48     Post Reply
On Fox’s Special Report tonight, Charles Krauthammer said the issue of President Trump‘s tax returns is basically a “dead parrot.” Bret Baier brought up the Tax Day protests where people were demanding the returns, as well as the president’s response to them. Mara Liasson said Trump could put out his returns if he wanted to, though as Mollie Hemingway pointed out, as president, Trump’s tax returns are audited every year. When Baier asked Krauthammer if there’s any way Trump will release the returns, Krauthammer said, “Never. This issue is dead. It’s a dead parrot.” Or perhaps it’s just pining for the fjords?

LONDON — President Trump hasn’t even confirmed the exact dates for his state visit, but British politicians are already fretting — if not in an outright panic — over how to cope with the politically dicey drop-by, not least because of the protests that are likely to erupt once he arrives. Enter British Prime Minister Theresa May, who has come up with a plan: She wants to meet the president in the remote Scottish Highlands, where she could not only welcome the leader of the free world with pomp and circumstance worthy of the vaunted “special relationship,” but also keep Mr.

Panmunjom, South Korea - With North Korean soldiers standing less than 100 feet behind him at the Korean Demilitarized Zone, Vice President Mike Pence told CNN that Pyongyang should understand that the Trump administration´s approach toward the regime will be different than that of past US presidents. "We´re going to abandon the failed policy of strategic patience. But we´re going to redouble our efforts to bring diplomatic and economic pressure to bear on North Korea. Our hope is that we can resolve this issue peaceably," Pence said in an exclusive interview at the DMZ. To achieve this new strategy, the

Both the Trump administration and North Korea are ratcheting up statements about a potential conflict. “President [Donald] Trump has changed the equation. We don’t know what he will do,” said Fred Fleitz, a senior vice president for the Center for Security Policy, a conservative national security think tank. “If there is a strike, shooting down missiles would be proportional. But I don’t think we will see a strike on missile sites.” When visiting South Korea on Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence said “the era of strategic patience is over.” This came days after the North Korean state-run media asserted the country is

Donald J. Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in November came as a shock to the world. Polls, news reports and everything the Clinton campaign was hearing in the final days pointed to her becoming the first female president in American history. In their compelling new book, “Shattered,” the journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes write that Clinton’s loss suddenly made sense of all the reporting they had been doing for a year and a half — reporting that had turned up all sorts of “foreboding signs” that often seemed at odds, in real time, with indications that Clinton was the favorite

No President in American history has ever golfed more per week than Donald Trump. In his first 12 weeks in office Trump took a staggering 18 golf course trips. That´s unheard of. In his first 12 weeks in office, President Obama didn´t visit a single golf course. By the end of this year, it´s likely that Trump will have golfed more than President Obama has in his entire presidency. And that´s strange. It´s really strange. Because Donald Trump and other conservative pundits seemed to be deeply bothered by the times President Obama went out and golfed. It appeared to genuinely offend

Would you attempt to bring someone happiness in their final moments in life, knowing full well that what you just told them was a lie? Well, one Oregon woman thought this was a good idea and, because of it, her ex-husband died with a smile on his face. According to an obituary for 76-year-old Michael Garland Elliott who passed on April 6, that last thing he heard was a comment from his ex-wife and best friend, Teresa Elliot.

Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore says he’s “on fire” creatively in his “Easter Dinner Reflections” Facebook post. Why? It’s all about “removing a sitting president,” he says in his @mmflint Twitter promo for the Facebook commentary. Moore’s just not sure what the best media vehicle is for him to “take him down." He explains in his “Reflections”: “I think I need to make a movie. Or bring back my weekly series to TV. Or stand on a stage and howl. Or something. Or anything. Or all of it.” Moore ponders his options: "Can a simple movie actually bring down a sitting

Hillary Clinton phoned Barack Obama on election night after conceding defeat and told him: ‘I’m sorry’. The Democratic Presidential candidate stepped into an anteroom for the conversation to apologize for losing to Donald Trump in a conversation which has never previously been reported. As she took the call Clinton knew she had ‘let her country down’ and that Obama’s legacy lay ‘shattered at Donald Trump’s feet’, a new book reveals. Minutes earlier Clinton had called Trump and suppressed ‘the anger that touched every nerve in her body’ as she conceded. She said: ‘Congratulations, Donald. ‘I’ll be supportive of the country’s success and that means

By all accounts, Jared Kushner, the husband of President Trump´s favorite daughter, has become an extraordinarily powerful man in the White House. To formally appoint Kushner a senior adviser, with a top security clearance, the president sought and received a Justice Department opinion declaring the White House exempt from federal anti-nepotism laws. That meant Kushner could have an official White House title to go along with his trusted-member-of-the-family influence.

He talks about Obama speechwriters attacking Trump for doing exactly what President Obama would have done in Syria. "And then came the strike against Syria. On that issue, Trump appears to have listened carefully to his senior national security professionals, reversed his ealier positions, chosen a calibrated response, and acted swiftly.

Democrats are pumping millions into the Georgia congressional election set for Tuesday, hoping a 30-year-old political upstart who´s attracting star power can deliver a rebuke to President Trump and help the party reclaim lost momentum. Hollywood has even come out for the off-cycle vote, with actor Samuel L.

Stop Donald Trump, a man who encourages racial and religious discrimination and sexism,” Jackson says in the ad, casting the race as a chance to undermine
