How Many False Prophets Have We Seen?

How many times have we supported a candidate who ran as a conservative and then made a sharp left after being elected?

The same is true of the Koch Brothers. A decade ago they were viewed as solid conservatives, but as the years passed it became increasingly apparent that they couldn’t care less about the United States … the key for them is to make as many billions as possible at the expense of working class Americans.

Ten years ago the left couldn’t condemn the Koch Brothers aggressively enough. The criticism subsided when the left realized the Koch Brothers are just as anxious to destroy the United States as progressives themselves.

The billionaire, pro-mass immigration Koch brothers’ network of organizations are already railing against a rumored plan by President Trump to end all refugee resettlement to the United States, stating that Americans must not “turn our backs” on refugees.

This month, reports have circulated that the Trump administration could further reduce the inflow of refugees arriving in the U.S., as Breitbart News reported. Federal immigration officials have requested that the current refugee cap — reduced by Trump to 30,000 annual admissions, which is merely a numerical limit and not a goal to be reached — be cut to anywhere between zero or 3,000 to 10,000.

The halt to refugees being admitted to the U.S. would be a pause after nearly four decades of the country admitting thousands of foreign nationals through the resettlement program.

Before the proposal is made official, the LIBRE Initiative, one of the GOP mega-donor Kochs’ organizations, is blasting a refugee reduction, saying Americans should not “turn our backs” on the world’s migrants.

LIBRE Initiative President Daniel Garza said in a statement:

The United States has long stood by its commitment to offer refuge to those whose very existence is threatened because of their political beliefs, their religion or for other reasons. Resettling refugees here saves lives and families – and sometimes whole communities. Additionally, we know that the vast majority of refugees who come here – like other immigrants – make immeasurable contributions to our nation. They remind us of the dangers of oppressive and tyrannical governments, and they contribute to our communities, economy, and our nation. [Emphasis added]

With this in mind, it would have an adverse effect to further reduce – or even eliminate entirely – refugee admissions that have already been slashedWe should not simply turn our back on those who face oppression around the world, and who yearn for nothing more than to live freely and realize their full potential. [Emphasis added]

The Kochs’ support for large-scale refugee resettlement to the U.S. matches 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) plan to import at least 700 percent more refugees to the country, as Breitbart News has noted.

The U.S., thanks exclusively to Trump’s reforms, helped lower the total number of refugees to about 22,000 admissions last year. This is a 76 percent decrease in foreign refugee resettlement from President Obama’s 2016 totals that reached almost 100,000 admissions. Trump also cut Obama’s surge of Syrian refugees arriving in the U.S. by more than 60 percent.

Warren would reverse that reduction of refugees, adding another at least 154,000 refugees to American communities every year who would be forced to absorb nationals at the mandate of the federal government.

Refugee resettlement costs American taxpayers about $1.8 billion a year and about $8.8 billion over the course of five years, research by the Federation for American Immigration Reform has revealed.

    David Koch is even linked to Jeffrey Epstein:

    The names include well known performers, including Ralph Fiennes, Alec Baldwin, David Blaine, Jimmy Buffett and Courtney Love; media figures including Charlie Rose, Mike Wallace and Barbara Walters; former Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak, former British prime minister Tony Blair, industrialist David Koch and the late Salomon Brothers chief executive officer John Gutfreund and his wife, Susan.

    False Prophets? Like Obama declaring he would “lower the level of the oceans”???

    But yup, the Koch Bros. have been two of the worst. Two billionaires who, as you note, don’t give a damn about Americans. But then there’s another billionaire who DOES…the Prez!! 🙂

    The refreshing thing about Trump is that we knew EXACTLY what we were getting…and he has never pretended otherwise.

    I wasn’t 100% for Trump until he got the nomination, but this year I’ve already contributed, and will again.

    Since Snopes has a couple of former porn stars as fact checkers, this is perfect for them.

    It has come to the point, most Americans want a pause in immigration. There is a growing number who want a complete stop to immigration.

    Wait until the next recession, Government (the left’s God) wont be able to save them.

    God has a way of showing you what is false and what is true. Who can save you and who can not.

    God is my refuge and salvation.

    Yup they went entirely silent against them since about mid 2015, someone finally figured out I guess around the time they went NT that they basically support the same agenda.

    Well here is one more false prophet — https://dailycaller.com/2019/08/19/bernie-sanders-union-worker-absolutely-take-away-health-care-plan/#disqus_thread — This just cost him the nomination. He won’t get squat out of Ohio, Pensy, or NY; three heavy union states.

    23,

    Read a piece over the weekend that ethnic Finns are not Scandinavian as I presumed. They are Indo-Asian genetic stock. Article indicated that they are being closely studied as a genetic group as they have not interbred to any extent Slavic or Scandinavian gene pools.

    26, interesting! I’ve read that the Finnish language is related to Hungarian not to Slav or Scandinavian tongues.
