  • Green Card Giveaway for Big Tech, Backed by NRCC Chair Tom Emmer, May Get Spotlight in Lame Duck Congress

    Beltway lobbyists are hoping a lame duck Congress rams through a green card giveaway for the nation’s largest tech conglomerates that would hugely reward them for rapidly outsourcing American jobs to foreign visa workers. The EAGLE Act, a rebranded version of Big Tech’s S.386, is sponsored by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) — who represents Silicon Valley’s tech elite — and has the backing of 75 other House Democrats and eight House Republicans including National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) Chair Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN). Emmer’s office did not respond to a request for comment by Breitbart News. Before all midterm election...

    Elon Musk's cost-cutting plans may have left hundreds of Twitter employees on high-skill work visas on a countdown to deportation. At least 250 Twitter workers appear to be employed on a H-1B visa, according to official records and now face an uncertain future. And according to analysis of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) data by the National Foundation for American Policy, that number could be as high as 670, or 8% of the company pre-cuts, Forbes reported.

    Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-UT) decision not to endorse Sen. Mike Lee’s (R-UT) reelection bid has infuriated Senate Republicans and conservative activists. Romney, Utah’s junior senator, has declined — and even refused — to endorse Lee’s reelection bid. Lee is the senior senator from Utah. Senate Republicans are becoming increasingly alarmed by the decision, noting that even though Senate Republicans may have their differences on policy, they typically stand united against Republican opponents. “I respect [Romney], and I understand that each state has its own dynamics, but I do not understand why he is remaining neutral,” one Republican senator said anonymously....

    There are far too few workers in the U.S. to meet rising demand, a problem exacerbated by an aging population, low birthrates, and stifled immigration. It could become one of the biggest economic challenges of the next several decades.

The scary moment was captured on video and shared with KTLA by Nikhil Choudhary. It shows the ride spinning for several seconds before dropping uncontrolled to the ground. The screaming passengers bounced several feet into the air following the impact at the base of the ride. Most suffered back and jaw injuries but all of the riders were expected to survive...

    The US has received sufficient number of applications needed to reach the Congressionally mandated 65,000 H1-B visa cap for the fiscal year 2023, the country's federal agency for immigration services said on Tuesday. The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign workers in speciality occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise. Technology companies depend on it to hire thousands of employees each year from countries like India and China. The H-1B visa programme is the most sought-after work visa among foreign professionals, including Indians. “We have received a sufficient number of petitions needed to...

    Doctors have removed a steel cup from a man’s rectum ten days after his friends put it up there as a drunken prank. The 45-year-old from Balipadar, India, had the substantially sized object removed via surgery at a local hospital. The incident, which took place on 19 August, apparently happened when the unfortunate man was out drinking with his friends at Surat in Gujarat, an Indian state which prohibits alcohol. According to reports, the victim’s friends said they inserted the sizeable item up his rectum whilst he was in an 'inebriated state' as part of a 'prank'. The cup is...

    America's tech giants are taking a modern-day crash course in India's ancient caste system, with Apple (AAPL.O) emerging as an early leader in policies to rid Silicon Valley of a rigid hierarchy that's segregated Indians for generations. … …U.S. discrimination laws…do not explicitly ban casteism. … …the first U.S. employment lawsuit [filed by California] about alleged casteism - has forced Big Tech to confront a millennia-old hierarchy where Indians' social position has been based on family lineage, from the top Brahmin "priestly" class to the Dalits, shunned as "untouchables" and consigned to menial labor. … Since the suit was filed,...

    Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) did not hold back Wednesday in ripping H.R. 1, the so-called “For the People Act.” The House bill would radically change the United States’ voting system. Lee called the bill “rotten to the core.” He said it is as if the bill was “written in hell by the devil himself.” “I disagree with every single word in H.R. 1, including the words ‘but,’ ‘and,’ and ‘the.’ Everything about this bill is rotten to the core. This is a bill as if written in hell by the devil himself,” Lee declared. “This takes all sorts of decisions...

    Intel has produced some unbelievable graphs in its time: projected Itanium market share, next node power consumption, multicore performance boosts. The graph the company showed at the latest VLSI Symposium, however, was a real shocker.While computer science course take-up had gone up by over 90 percent in the past 50 years, electrical engineering (EE) had declined by the same amount. The electronics graduate has become rarer than an Intel-based smartphone.Engineering degree courses are a lot of work across a lot of disciplines, with electronic engineering being particularly diverse. The theoretical side covers signal, information, semiconductor devices, optical and electromagnetic theory,...
  • How bad do Utah Democrats want Mike Lee out? Bad enough to ditch their own nominee and back Evan McMullin instead

    The Utah Democratic Party saw no shortage of drama during its state convention on Saturday — and their decision to not put forth a Democratic candidate to face off with Republican Sen. Mike Lee has big implications for Utah's U.S. Senate race. It injects significant momentum into a more moderate, independent movement in Utah politics — and signals Utah Democrats are so eager to up the chances of beating Lee, they're willing to ditch their own candidate. At least for now.

    Senate Minority Whip John Thune (R-SD) is joining Democrats, as well as the big business lobby, in asking President Joe Biden for more legal immigration to the United States to fill American jobs. Even as the nation’s foreign-born population has hit record highs, Thune says the Biden administration is not importing enough H-2B foreign visa workers to fill blue-collar seasonal jobs in the U.S.

    During an appearance on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) urged Congress not to legislate under the “heat of the moment,” referring to the emotions resulting from gun violence in Buffalo, NY and Uvalde, TX. Lee told host Shannon Bream he had yet to see the language of legislation from a reported compromise between the “gang of 20” and said the disagreement could come on terms like what constitutes an “assault rifle.”

    Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) said the media had the full text of the latest gun control bill before the senate had a chance to review it. Lee said the rollout of the bill was the “Senate operating at its worst,” noting that it prevented others from adding amendments. The U.S. Senate ultimately voted 64 to 34 in favor of the bill. Fourteen Republican senators voted with the Democrats to pass the bill. According to Lee, Republicans were basically asked to take a blind vote on the bill without actually reading it. "There were a group of senators, ten Republicans and...

Mike Lee (R-UT) leads Never Trumper and Utah independent Senate candidate Evan McMullin by double digits, smashing establishment media narratives that this Senate race is closer than it appears, according to an internal Lee campaign poll.

The survey also found that Lee also leads amongst Republicans with 70 percent and is tied with McMullin on independent-leaning voters with 44 percent. McMullin only leads with Democrat voters with 60 percent,...

    After a decade of exuberance, Silicon Valley start-ups, venture capitalists and established tech companies alike are cutting investment and firing workers, prompting some in the tech world to openly predict a U.S. recession is on the way. Facebook and Amazon have slowed their frantic hiring paces, while highflying newer companies including scooter company Bird and email client Superhuman have laid off workers. Tesla chief executive Elon Musk recently told employees he has a "super bad feeling" about the economy, and venture capital firm Lightspeed Venture Partners warned in a blog post that "the boom times of the last decade are...

    My new book tells the story of what happened the last time an American president attempted to pack the Supreme Court. It had lasting consequences even though it didn't pass in the Senate. It ended up bullying, intimidating and threatening the Supreme Court to the point that the Supreme Court changed its interpretation of the Constitution I cover this history and more in "Saving Nine", which will help you understand why packing the Supreme Court is such a terrible idea.

    TOKYO -- China and India have increased Russian oil purchases as prices decline due to Western import bans, the latest data shows, creating a loophole that allows Moscow to secure export revenue. China imported 800,000 barrels of Russian petroleum daily by sea last month, according to data from Refinitiv, a figure that does not include oil delivered via pipelines. The volume has soared by more than 40% from January. The number indicates that China is deliberately going after cheap Russian crude. India's marine imports of Russia's oil also spiked from zero in January to nearly 700,000 barrels a day in...
