Chuck Schumer Advocates Mass Amnesty, Immigration Because Americans Aren’t Reproducing Enough

#Chuck #Schumer #Advocates #Mass #Amnesty #Immigration #Americans #Arent #Reproducing

Senator Chuck Schumer is poised to keep his leadership position in the Senate and is pushing for mass amnesty for illegal immigrants in the lame-duck Congress.

It’s no coincidence that this week, lobbyists for so-called “DREAMers” movements are in D.C. to push for immigration legislation as the House is about to change hands.

And while statistically, most voters are for some form of a pathway to citizenship for DREAMer immigrants, Senator Schumer decided to go all in this week, swinging that immigration pendulum all the way to the left.

His latest push to provide citizenship for all illegal immigrants is just another example of how our elected officials in no way are interested in any real immigration reform.

However, the justification for such a ridiculous move is unique, at least to hear it publicly stated.

Watch:

The Quiet Part Out Loud

If you listen very carefully, you can catch the actual liberal agenda; they don’t keep it a secret anymore.

Literally, all you need is two ears and a basic understanding of the English language. Case in point, Senator Schumer proclaimed yesterday the following:

“Now more than ever, we’re short of workers we have a population that is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to.”

He went on to explain what the solution is to our “labor shortage” and population decline:

“The only way we’re going to have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants, the DREAMers and – all of them. Cause our ultimate goal is to help the DREAMers but get a path to citizenship for all 11 million, or however many undocumented immigrants.”

So the only way to secure a great future for our country is significant demographic change? Or is Schumer advocating for mass immigration from Western Europe?

Gosh, this sounds super familiar… what is this called again… oh that’s right, this is called the “Replacement Theory.”

For those who don’t watch Tucker Carlson or are up to speed on controversial political and social theories, the Replacement Theory is generally the concept of using immigration to “replace” a native society.

According to the media and our overlords, such a theory is by turns “racist,” “anti-semitic” for some reason, and most definitely a conspiracy theory that no one in power has ever advocated.

According to NPR, such a dangerous theory is

In short, the “great replacement” is a conspiracy theory that states that nonwhite individuals are being brought into the United States and other Western countries to “replace” white voters to achieve a political agenda. It is often touted by anti-immigration groups, white supremacists and others, according to the National Immigration Forum.

And: 

According to the ADL (Anti-Defamation League), white supremacists blame Jewish people for nonwhite immigration to the U.S., and the “replacement” theory is now associated with antisemitism.

So what happens when political leaders openly advocate for it in public? Is it still just a dangerous theory only racists care about?

Don’t Work

To give the Senator some credit, he’s not entirely wrong about the fact that we have a labor shortage and a birth rate issue. Our country has over 10 million job openings and only six million unemployed Americans, according to official statistics.

If everyone unemployed got a job, there would still be four million job openings unfilled. But that’s not the whole story.

Let’s dive into the labor participation rate, which is only 62.3%. What does that number indicate? 

It says that there are able workers who are either being overlooked by employers or choosing not to work. If you spend any time on LinkedIn, you no doubt have been inundated with articles discussing how employers are failing at hiring practices by taking too long to make hiring decisions and expecting new hires to have 5 to 10 years of experience.

Add to that the enhanced unemployment benefits and stimulus checks that the government rained down during COVID, there is little motivation to get a job. After all, why work when you earn more in unemployment than you do working for The Man?

Having Babies Is Bad 

If you are a fan of my writing, you know I have a bit of a crush on billionaire meme master Elon Musk.

He was ridiculed by experts on CNN when he tweeted earlier this year:

“population collapse due to low birth rates is a much bigger risk to civilization than global warming”

CNN had ‘experts’ on to eviscerate Mr. Musk, pointing out that the global population rate is increasing, not decreasing, and that perhaps he should stick to space and cars and stay out of family planning advice.

They are right about the global population. However, the U.S. birth rate has declined and dropped 20% since 2007.

The real issue the left had with Mr. Musk’s tweet is that it was critical of their cult of climate change. For example, a Yale publication this year linked access to abortion to climate change, stating in its forward:

“Voluntary family planning is too often ignored as a means to lower carbon emissions.”

The article goes on to state:

“Avoiding unwanted births – by making contraception and abortion freely available globally – would significantly reduce births and therefore (over the long term) human-generated carbon emissions.”

Let’s put all this together in case you need help seeing the big picture.

They Think You Are Dumb

So the same party that advocates for more government handouts, creating a society dependent on the government financially, is complaining that we don’t have enough workers to fill jobs. The same party that advocates for no abortion restrictions in the name of global warming is complaining that we don’t have enough babies.

One of the leaders of this party is suggesting that the best way and only way to solve these two issues is a massive influx of immigrants – both legal and illegal.

Are you paying attention yet?

The sad part is most Americans are behind a path to citizenship for DREAMers – to the tune of 68% of voters. DREAMers, as a review, are protections and legislation for children brought over to America as illegal immigrants as children.

These kids had no choice in their illegal immigrant status, which is why there is a majority of voters who are for a pathway to citizenship. What is sad about what Senator Schumer said yesterday and is pushing for is he knows it won’t help those kids, and he doesn’t care either.

Earlier this year, Senator Schumer wrote a letter to Fox News demanding they:

“immediately cease the reckless amplifications of the so-called ‘Great Replacement’ theory.”

The reason is that he was planning to amplify it all on his own.

Liberals Are Mad That McCarthy Named MAGA Republicans to Subcommittees on COVID and Government Weaponization – Good

#Liberals #Mad #McCarthy #Named #MAGA #Republicans #Subcommittees #COVID #Government #Weaponization #Good

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced members named to two select subcommittees – one investigating the origins of COVID and another looking into the weaponization of the federal government – and Democrats are livid over the addition of certain MAGA lawmakers.

“The government has a responsibility to serve the American people, not go after them,” McCarthy said in a statement.

“The Members selected to serve on these subcommittees will work to stop the weaponization of the federal government and will also finally get answers to the Covid origins and the federal government’s gain of function research that contributed to the pandemic,” he added.

McCarthy notes that the weaponization subcommittee is necessary because congressional Democrats and the Biden administration engaged in a “dangerous pattern of the government being used to target political opponents while they neglected their most basic responsibilities.”

MAGA Members Named to House Select Subcommittees

A couple of names that showed up on the House select subcommittees raised the ire of Democrats, particularly those associated with the MAGA movement.

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) continued reaping the fruits of a kinship with McCarthy that would make Frank Luntz blush, being named to the COVID-19 subcommittee.

Greene celebrated the appointment, stating her intention to investigate the role of gain-of-function research, the Democrat “authoritarian” lockdowns, the ineffective vaccines forced on the American people, and Dr. Anthony Fauci’s role.

Greene will also be sitting on the House Homeland Security and Oversight Committees.

Also named to the COVID subcommittee is former White House physician Ronny Jackson (R-TX), who has consistently challenged President Biden to undergo a mental fitness evaluation.

Jim Jordan (R-OH) will chair the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government after being rejected by former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to serve on the January 6th panel.

Liberals Aren’t Happy

Liberals on social media responded with outrage over MAGA Republicans representing their constituents on the select subcommittees.

Because see, it would be better to have completely partisan sham committees like the January 6th debacle.

Democratic Congressman Don Beyer dismissed both panels as “devoted to conspiracy theories.”

This is fine by us, since these days “conspiracy theories” mostly just means “the media hasn’t admitted it yet.”

House Judiciary Democrats lambasted McCarthy for having “sold out our democracy to empower MAGA extremists.”

Richard Stengel, a former Obama administration official, also took the dismissive ‘conspiracy theory’ path.

The ‘Weaponization’ subcommittee, Stengel claims, is “a body that creates rather than investigates conspiracy theories and which will eventually undermine itself.”

We literally just watched the January 6th sham create highly directed and produced filmography rather than evidence, doctored actual evidence, created conspiracy theories, and admitted they wanted to tell people what they should believe.

If Democrats are mad about MAGA Republicans serving on committees to provide a counterpoint to Democrat and media lies, then McCarthy is most definitely doing the right thing.

Exclusive: Why older mass shooters like the California gunmen are so rare – TalkOfNews.com

Why older mass shooters like the California gunmen are so rare

#older #mass #shooters #California #gunmen #rare

The gunmen in both of the recent shootings in Monterey Park and Half Moon Bay, California, had an unusual profile compared to most perpetrators of violent crime: They were both senior citizens.

The Monterey Park gunman, who killed 11 and injured nine before fatally shooting himself, was 72. The Half Moon Bay gunman, who killed seven people before he was arrested in what police have characterized as an act of workplace violence, is 66.

Mass shooters of that age are rare, especially those with no prior criminal record, as was the case with the Half Moon Bay gunman. (The Monterey Park gunman had one arrest in 1990 for illegal possession of a firearm.) According to data from the National Institute of Justice, mass shooters between 1966 and 2021 were on average 34 years old, and those over the age of 60 accounted for a little over 3 percent of all mass shootings, which are defined as shootings in which four or more people are killed.

The notion that people “age out of crime” is one of the most well-documented phenomena in the field of criminology. The California shootings should be seen as exceptions to that principle, not as nullifying examples, according to Ashley Nellis, co-director of research for the Sentencing Project, which advocates for criminal justice reform.

“The predictability of age is probably the most reliable point of data that we have about people who commit violent crime. Young people are just substantially more likely, and by extension, older people are substantially unlikely, to commit crime,” Nellis said. “It’s certainly a cautionary note to anybody who would be jumping to make policy based on these two events.”

Research has repeatedly shown that criminal activity increases throughout teen years, reaches its highest point at age 17, the oldest that someone can be charged with a juvenile crime, and subsides thereafter throughout life. Property crime peaks at a slightly younger age than violent crime. But even chronic offenders would be statistically likely to stop committing crime by around the age of 40, Nellis said.

There are a lot of theories as to why that might be. Typical milestones associated with getting older, like graduating or getting married, may put people on a trajectory that veers away from criminality. Brain development isn’t complete until the mid-20s, hindering decision-making that might lead to crime and risky behavior. Young people have less financial security, and people in poverty are more likely to commit crimes. Some crimes might be physically demanding, and older people just might not have the strength to carry them out.

But both gunmen in the California shootings buck the archetype of a violent criminal, and their motives still aren’t entirely clear. Investigators have said that the Monterey Park shooter frequented the dance studio where he killed his victims and that the Half Moon Bay gunman, who lived and worked as a forklift driver at a mushroom farm, was angry at the coworkers he shot. Previously, there have been mass shooters as old as 70, including a gunman who opened fire at a church in Vestavia Hills, Alabama, and killed three people last June.

Though age can sometimes factor into the decision to impose a less harsh sentence on young offenders, the Half Moon Bay shooter’s advanced age won’t have any bearing on the length of his sentence, as is standard practice in the US.

He will be charged with seven counts of murder and one count of attempted murder, with a special circumstance allegation of multiple murder and sentencing enhancements for each count because of his use of a firearm, the San Mateo County district attorney announced Wednesday. If convicted on those charges, he could be facing up to life in prison without the possibility of parole. (He won’t face the death penalty, given that California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, placed a moratorium on executions in the state in 2019.)

Life sentences without parole have become increasingly common in the US over the last few decades. But Nellis argues the age of older offenders like the Half Moon Bay shooter should be considered a mitigating factor when making sentencing decisions — especially given that the use of executive clemency to release them early has become nonexistent, as she writes in a 2022 report.

“Regardless of age, somebody who does commit an act of violence like this is likely to be rehabilitated, be reformed, be ready to return to society within 10 years,” she said.

Recidivism is unlikely among older people, according to data from the US Sentencing Commission, and keeping them in prison comes at a high taxpayer cost, which includes health care bills that balloon at the end of life. It’s difficult to say how much those who’ll decide the fate of the Half Moon Bay suspect will take that data into account; his initial arraignment is Wednesday.
