Stephen Miller Pantses NYT Reporter In Briefing - Video

"Maybe we'll carve out a part of the bill to allow low wage workers at the NY Times..."


White House senior adviser Stephen Miller shut down New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush during Wednesday’s press briefing and proposed that an immigration bill include a provision requiring the Times to hire unskilled workers.

Miller, an immigration hawk and former aide to then-Sen. Jeff Sessions, appeared at the briefing to promote the RAISE Act. The Senate bill is supported by the White House and would reform the American immigration system to benefit skilled workers. The senators sponsoring the legislation estimate it would cut immigration by 50 percent over ten years.

Thrush asked Miller at the briefing to cite statistics to back up his premise that low-skilled immigration hurts American workers, and Miller referenced a recent study by Harvard labor economist Jorge Borjas. 

Borjas debunked a highly-cited study that claimed that a wave of Cuban immigrants in Miami had no effect on native workers.

Miller also went on to cite studies by the Center for Immigration Studies’ Steven Camarota and Peter Kirsanow of the American Civil Rights Commission. However, this wasn’t enough for Thrush who told Miller that he wanted statistics, not the name of studies. The White House aide went on to cite a statistic and then added, “But let’s also use common sense here, folks. At the end of the day, why do special interests want to bring in more low skilled workers?”

Thrush continued to insist for more statistics, and the senior adviser lashed back, “Maybe we’ll make a carve-out in the bill that says The New York Times can hire all the less skilled, low paid workers from other countries and see how you feel about low wage substitution.” (RELATED: Politico Reporter Gets Caught AGAIN Sending A Story To A Clinton Staffer For Approval)

“Maybe it’s time we had compassion, Glenn, for American workers,” Miller added.This was a vicious beatdown. Glenn Thrush should resign from his post and live out the rest of his days tending to transgender goats in the green fields of Romania.

CNN's Acosta Suffers Intense Beatdown By White House's Miller Over Immigration - Video

Outed long ago along with fellow CNN fake news shrieking, pedantic shills Acosta has his ass handed to him - again - while hysterically spewing deluge of CNN fantasy and lies  


Stephen Miller destroyed two reporters today, who may not recover.

CNN fake news fraud Acosta sings blown-off blues
His first victim was the NY Times Glenn Thrush

The second, and most severely battered, was CNN's Jim Acosta -- who accused Trump's new English requirement for immigrants as a racist policy meant to import gents from Great Britain and Australia.

The result of his comments was a furious and energetic verbal thrashing, calling out Jim for having a shockingly ignorant 'cosmopolitan bias'. 

This is one for the ages.


Moral Principles And Flexible Sanctions

CNN, MSM fake news bear sole responsibility for the results of their international warmongering insanity

By Brian Cloughley

There is generally a degree of hypocrisy about the imposition of sanctions on a country by another country or group of countries. Those who inflict sanctions assert that their target has done something terribly wrong which will be corrected following its recognition that superior beings are setting an international example of flawless moral rectitude, but it is doubtful that such perfection exists.

If the sanctioning countries were in reality superior in moral behaviour to everyone else on the planet, this might possibly excuse sanctioning in some cases; but at times the unwelcome fact emerges that imposing sanctions is usually an act of sanctimonious humbug.

Take India and Pakistan, for example. 

India conducted nuclear tests in May 1998 and Pakistan followed suit "to even the score" in an ill-advised counterstroke. 

There was outrage in Washington. President Clinton, notable for his high moral standards, declared that India’s tests "clearly create a dangerous new instability in their region and... I have decided to impose sanctions against India." Then he took the same action against Pakistan.

Both countries were subjected to severe economic penalties at the instigation of Washington. The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund were forbidden to help them, and there were all sorts of other punishments. The western world, and especially Israel, which had been quietly producing nuclear weapons for years, expected sanctions to have the effect of halting the nuclear weapons programmes of both countries.

The US Assistant Secretary for South Asian Affairs quoted the President’s righteous indignation to the Senate by repeating that "this action by India not only threatens the stability of the region, it directly challenges the firm international consensus to stop the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction."

But today India and Pakistan each have about 130 nuclear warheads in bombs and ballistic missiles and their nuclear weapons programmes are at full throttle. There has been massive nuclear proliferation. So what could have happened? Why didn’t sanctions work?

India performed further nuclear tests in 1998 (code-named "Operation Shakti")

What happened was that another paragon of moral rectitude, George W Bush (he of "we found the Weapons of Mass Destruction" after his catastrophic invasion of Iraq) decided to remove sanctions on India and Pakistan because, as his spokesman explained, "We intend to support those who support us. We intend to work with those governments that work with us in this fight [against terrorism]."

As the great Groucho Marx once said, with a cynical eye on the world around him,

The latest sanctions on Russia are a prime example of malevolent spite, and are intended to make life as difficult as possible for its citizens in the hope that they will revolt and overthrow President Putin, just as sanctions on Cuba were intended to have Cubans topple President Castro, if the CIA couldn’t murder him first. (They tried many times.) The US has sanctioned Cuba for almost sixty years, but, as observed by the Cato Institute, "The embargo has been a failure by every measure. It has not changed the course or nature of the Cuban government. It has not liberated a single Cuban citizen..."

Obama tried to end the mindless, petty, spiteful anti-Cuba campaign, but the psychotic Trump got things back to normal by announcing introduction of even harsher sanctions, including a ban on tourism. will teach these evil people to support their government. The workers in ports and airfields and hotels and night clubs and restaurants will condemn Washington, and not their government, for destroying their jobs.

Then there were the years of sanctions against Iraq which penalised its citizens to a criminal degree. The US attitude was summed up by Ambassador Madeleine Albright, who was asked on television if she considered the deaths of half a million Iraqi children a reasonable result of US sanctions. She replied "This is a very hard choice, but we think the price is worth it." This callous, pitiless, utterly heartless statement was indicative of US official policy — which continues, world-wide.

But that’s what sanctions are all about. And the latest bout of gutter vindictiveness centres on Russia. To the joy of the sabre-rattlers, and especially of NATO, so desperately seeking a reason for its continued existence, the Cold War has begun again.

But there’s a little problem for the warmongers...

Some ancient warmongers live forever

Unfortunately for US national pride, there are some things for which it has to rely on Russia, and a difficulty for Washington is that US astronauts are ferried to and from the International Space Station in Russian rockets, and that some American rockets rely on Russian engines.

So among its vicious measures to try to punish Russia the US Congress didn’t include sanctions that might be awkward for their space programmes. There were no mainstream media reports about this embarrassing tap-dancing, but one observation was that "Officials at Orbital ATK [an American aerospace and military equipment manufacturer] and ULA [a Lockheed-Boeing space venture] breathed sighs of relief as the US Senate voted overwhelmingly to exempt rocket engines from a sanctions bill targeting Iran and Russia. The amendment to the sanctions measure exempted RD-180 engines used by ULA in the first stage of its Atlas V booster and the RD-181 engines Orbital ATK uses in the first stage of its Antares launch vehicle. Both engines are produced by NPO Energomash of Russia."

And the really funny thing is that the Atlas V rocket launches US spy satellites. On 1 March NASA reported the seventieth mission by an Atlas V, when «a final launch verification took place at T-16 seconds, leading to the start sequence of the RD-180 engine at the base of the Atlas V core at T-2.7 seconds». It would be too much to expect them to admit that the RD-180 is made in Russia.

The US Senate and House of Representatives support imposition of sanctions all round the world on the most principled grounds — except when their actions would interfere with the profits of the US aerospace industry and Washington’s ability to spy on Russia from space.

CNN fake news attempts to once again lie and shill Americans into a war - any war - the bigger the better and this time around will be held personally and collectively responsible for the outcome

The International Space Station is a heart-warming example of US-Russia teamwork which is anathema to every Senator and member of the House of Representatives. Not one of them has ever mentioned the gratitude the US owes Russia for its many years of willing cooperation. As recorded by NASA on 28 July — at the height of the Senate’s war-crazed anti-Russia hysteria — "This morning, a trio of astronauts will make their way to the International Space Station, launching on top of a Russian Soyuz rocket from Kazakhstan. They will join the three astronauts already living on board the ISS."

Groucho Marx put it so well by saying "Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others." He was joking, but the US Congress is deadly serious. What a bunch of pathetic hypocrites.

We have already discussed in the first part of this analysis how the American geography dooms whoever controls the territory to being a global power, but there are a number of other outcomes that shape what that power will be like. The first and most critical is the impact of that geography on the American mindset.
