Planned Parenthood Caught Performing Abortions on 12-Year Old Girls and Neglecting to Report the Crimes

Planned Parenthood abortion clinics have been caught repeatedly performing abortions on abuse victims as young as 12 and 13 years old, failing to report suspected sexual abuse to authorities, and then sending victims back to their abusers. Planned Parenthood is required by federal law to report suspected cases of sexual assault and abuse to law enforcement, but they have a long history of ignoring this law.

A new study by Live Action reveals that Planned Parenthood was caught performing abortions for girls as young as 12-years-old and not reporting the sexual crime to authorities.

This is not the first time Planned Parenthood was accused of abusing children.

Life News reported;

The Planned Parenthood abortion chain has been caught repeatedly performing abortions on abuse victims as young as 12 and 13 years old, failing to report suspected sexual abuse to authorities, and sending victims back to their abusers. A new investigative report report chronicles these cases and reveals Planned Parenthood’s decades-long pattern of helping child sex abusers cover up their crimes.

As LifeNews has documented multiple times, Planned Parenthood has a history of not reporting statutory rape or sexual abuse to authorities. The abortion corporation frequently covers up cases of rape with abortion and refuses to report rape cases to law enforcement.

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens Resigns over Sex Scandal

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens, a former Navy SEAL officer and Rhodes Scholar, was seen as a rising Republican star until he was forced to admit to an extra-martial affair dating back to 2015. He was accused of taking a compromising photo of the woman and blackmailing her with it (the photo was never discovered). A second criminal investigation resulted in charges that he improperly used a charity mailing list for fundraising during his political campaign. Greitens says his prosecution is a politically motivated witch hunt. -GEG

Eric Greitens, Missouri’s embattled Republican governor, announced he would resign Tuesday, yielding to the pressure of two months-long criminal prosecutions and the increasing threat of impeachment.

“It’s clear for the forces that oppose us, there’s no end in sight,” Greitens said in a press conference. “I cannot allow those forces to continue to cause pain and difficulty to the people that I love.”

Greitens denied all criminal wrongdoing, saying, “I am not perfect, but I have not broken any laws or offense worthy of this treatment.”

The governor said he would “always be a fighter for the people of Missouri” and “may God continue to bless you and to bless the great state of Missouri.”

Greitens, a former Navy SEAL officer and Rhodes Scholar, was seen as a rising Republican star until January when he was forced to admit to an extra-martial affair from 2015. His partner in that affair accused the governor of taking and threatening to expose compromising photos of their sexual escapades if she disclosed their relationship, leading to a felony invasion of privacy charge in February. The woman also accused Greitens of “coercing” sex from her on several occasions, but no prosecutor has sought sexual assault charges.

Determined to fight the charge, Greitens refused to step aside. Then a second criminal investigation resulted in felony charges, alleging the governor improperly used a charity mailing list for fundraising during his campaign.

While Greitens has not yet been convicted of any crime, the political winds in Missouri, where Republicans are waging a critical U.S. Senate race against vulnerable Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill, have turned decisively against him. The Republican-controlled Missouri legislature voted to convene a special session to consider impeachment and the front-runner to take on McCaskill, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley called for Grietens to step down.

Soros: EU Should Keep Borders Open and Pay Africa $35 Billion Per Year to Solve Refugee Crisis

Left-wing billionaire George Soros’ speech ‘How to Save Europe’ advocated for the European Union to deal with the continent’s refugee crisis by maintaining an open borders policy and spend more than $35 billion per year indefinitely to help Africa.  He says that the EU has an excellent credit rating and can borrow the money. [This would throw Europe into debt, making it ripe for harvest].

Left-wing billionaire George Soros wants the European Union to deal with the continent’s refugee crisis by maintaining an open borders policy and running up the EU’s credit.

The EU should take on debt in order to help improve economics conditions in Africa, as part of its response to the ongoing refugee crisis, Soros argued in a speech at the European Council on Foreign Relations’s annual meeting on Tuesday.

Soros pitched the idea of “an EU-led ‘Marshall Plan for Africa’” that “would require at least €30 billion ($35.4 billion) annually for a number of years” to help deal with the refugee crisis. Due to a “woeful shortage of financial resources,” Soros said, “EU member states could contribute only a small fraction of this amount. So, where could the money come from?”

“It is important to recognize that the refugee crisis is a European problem requiring a European solution. The EU has a high credit rating, and its borrowing capacity is largely unused,” he explained. “When should that capacity be put to use if not in an existential crisis?”

Democrats Blame Trump for Obama Photo of Children Locked in Detention at Border

A photo of migrant children being detained by immigration enforcement, locked in a chain link cell, went viral as left-wing celebrities. media personalities, and politicians took to Twitter to rage against Trump. They deleted their tweets when they were confronted with the fact that the photo was taken in 2014, when Obama was president.

Democrats attacked President Donald Trump over the weekend for a photo of migrant children being detained by immigration enforcement — even though the photo was actually taken in 2014, druing President Barack Obama’s term.

Left-wing celebrities, media personalities, and politicians took to Twitter to rage against Trump’s supposedly inhumane policy of separating illegal alien children from their parents, citing an article in the Arizona Republic and published in azcentral.com.

They rushed to delete their tweets once confronted with the fact that the photo was taken in 2014, when Obama was president.

Others blamed Trump for the policy of separating illegal alien children from adults — though it predates the Trump administration:

The Arizona Republic article claimed, incorrectly, that the 2014 photo was the “first glimpse” of children in a holding facility for illegal aliens — ignoring the fact that Breitbart Texas editor Brandon Darby had already broken the story of unaccompanied minors being detained at the border.

One reason for the policy of separating children from adults appears to have been to deter human trafficking. Immigration officials who were unable to ascertain whether children were actually related to the adults with whom they were caught often placed the children under supervision or in temporary foster care.

Gun-Grabbing Liberals and Mainstream Media Silent about Violence in Chicago

Gun-grabbing liberals were silent about the gun violence in Chicago over Memorial Day weekend, which left 32 people injured and seven dead, despite the city assigning an extra 1,000 police for duty.  The mainstream media is quiet because Chicago has the toughest gun control laws in the country, yet they have one of the highest murder rates, indicating that gun control does not work. The media also failed to report on violent gangs of teens who swamped the Miracle Mile upscale shopping area, and 19 people were arrested on charges of mob activity, battery and weapons possession. The mayhem comes less than a month after similar mob actions were reported on the famed retail strip.

Gun-grabbing liberals are quiet as little church mice over the DEADLY and bloody Memorial Day Weekend in “gun control” Chicago.

There are no David Hogg “die-ins” at local grocery stores for the Americans killed every day in a liberal city that has the strongest gun control laws in the country.

Why?

Because Chicago does not fit the liberal narrative that “gun control” works…..So they don’t say a word, while piles of Americans (mostly minorities) die.

Lucky for them, the progressive Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel cares more about illegals than Americans, so the tragedy happening in Chicago is largely ignored by everyone in the fake news media.

So, you’ll likely not hear about the 23 Americans shot in the streets of Chicago, or the 4 Americans who died as a result on CNN or MSNBC (and that was just Friday and Saturday).

From Breitbart

Chicago’s Memorial Day weekend got a brutal start with 23 people shot and four killed from Friday afternoon to Saturday evening. And there are still two more days of the long holiday weekend to go.

Officials hastened to note that the numbers for the first hours of the three-day holiday weekend are on par with last year’s bloodletting, Chicago’s WGN TV reported.

But even as the statistics seem familiar, the carnage is happening amidst a major police offensive with the Chicago Police Department (CPD) sending 1,000 officers into the streets to tamp down the violence.

The CPD has also welcomed the assistance of the FBI and even the ATF both of which have sent agents into the field with CPD Superintendent Eddie Johnson’s forces.

Magnificent Mile Teen Gang Fights:

It’s been a wild holiday weekend in Chicago, especially in River North and the Magnificent Mile. CWBChicago estimates a minimum of 19 arrests between noon on Saturday and 4 p.m. on Sunday related to mob activity, battery, and weapons possession.

A number of Mag Mile fight videos from the weekend were sent to CWBChicago. We’ve included them in this report. The mayhem comes less than a month after similar mob actions were reported on the famed retail strip.

Our team has identified four confirmed cases of shots fired in the Near North area this weekend—in the 500 block of North Wells; at LaSalle and Erie, and in the 800 block of North Lake Shore Drive. Police are still working to determine exactly where the fourth incident occurred. In a low-water mark, an on-duty undercover cop lost his phone to a pickpocket on Michigan Avenue Sunday.

Police grappled with large groups of teenagers in the Water Tower area on Saturday and Sunday nights. Their efforts were snarled when the CTA apparently fumbled plans to send trainloads of kids out of downtown on express runs.

For years, our team has compiled “highlight” reports of emergency radio traffic heard during Chicago’s Pride Parade and St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. Now, for the first time, we present a Memorial Day Weekend edition. To be honest, we couldn’t figure out any other way to convey the craziness that emergency workers tried their best to contain.

Las Vegas: New Docs Show 12 Resorts Reported Active Shooters and Paddock Had 3 Women in His Room

Las Vegas: Newly revealed records show Las Vegas Metro Police Department (LVMPD) received thousands of emergency calls on the night of the shooting on October 1st reporting other active shooters from numerous locations including: Luxor, Tropicana, New York, New York, MGM, Hooters, Aria, Cosmopolitan, Miracle Mile Shopping, Bellagio, Paris, Caesar’s Palace and Harrah’s. 

Independent citizen journalist Laura Loomer reported that supposed ‘lone shooter’ Stephen Paddock had three women in his room at the time of the shooting. She says Sheriff Lombardo, who is up for re-election on June 12, intentionally misled the public about the details surrounding the Las Vegas shooting. 

Recent documents released regarding the October 1, 2017 Las Vegas Shooting are beginning to shed light on more discrepancies and abnormalities surrounding the official timeline and narrative of the tragedy as originally stated by Sheriff Joe Lombardo and Special Agent Aaron Rouse of the Las Vegas FBI, including documentation that three women were found in the alleged shooter’s room.

The most recent batch of documents that were released include witness reports, dispatch logs, and officer reports that recount the events that took place that night and further reveal that Paddock was not alone in his room as was first stated by Sheriff Lombardo.

Page 26 of the dispatch logs that were released by LVMPD details the moments when the alleged shooter, Stephen Paddock, was located by a security detail at the Mandalay Bay. As actions were taken to assemble a team of officers to apprehend the suspect, a dispatcher shared the name of the alleged shooter located in Room 32-135, along with three females that were reported to be in the room with Mr. Paddock. However, the names of those three women are redacted from the report, while the checkout date listed for the women aligns with Paddock’s planned check out date of October 2, 2017. In the log, as seen on page 26, the following was documented as having taken place at 11:02 pm the night of the shooting when police breached Paddock’s room. “Units in control room 32 135. Suspect name of K(P)addock, Stephen. There three females in room.”

The three women are then listed as #1, #2, and #3, with their check in and check out dates, but their names are redacted from the log. “Checked on (in) on 9-25 scheduled to check out Oct 2nd.”

Shocking details such as the one above are found all throughout the nearly 2,000 documents that were released following a court order after The Associated Press and additional media outlets had to sue the LVMPD for the release of this information, information that the public has the right to see, as there are many questions left unanswered due to communication shut down by Sheriff Joe Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

Other details revealed in the dispatch log include calls that were made to report multiple gunshot wounded victims hiding in fear for their lives all over the strip. There were panicked calls made from Sundance Helicopter about possible hostages taken.

The details of the LVMPD dispatch log on page 26 specifically reveals that dispatch received information from Mandalay Bay regarding guest names, additional parties in the room, along with check-in and departure dates for Paddock and the three women found in his room, all of which completely contradicts information given to the public in early reports from LVMPD and Sheriff Lombardo. In press conferences held shortly after October 1, Lombardo specifically stated that Paddock checked into his suite at Mandalay Bay on September 28th, 2017 and that he stayed in the room by himself.

Israel Rains Airstrikes on Gaza after Hamas and Islamic Jihad Launch Rockets

The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) carried out 35 airstrikes across Gaza after Palestinian militants launched a barrage of rockets toward Israel. In a rare joint statement, Hamas and Islamic Jihad shared responsibility for Tuesday’s rocket-and-mortar attacks, as Islamic Jihad vowed to take revenge after a deadly attack against its members last week. -GEG

Israel’s military has launched a series of air strikes on Palestinian positions in Gaza after a barrage of rocket fire – the biggest in years – from the Strip amid soaring frustration in the coastal enclave over a crippling 12-year Israeli-imposed siege.

Israeli warplanes on Tuesday hit more than 35 targets belonging to Hamas and Islamic Jihad, according to Israel’s military. The strikes came after the Israeli army said Palestinian fighters were behind a “barrage of projectiles” fired from Gaza into southern Israel.

The firing of the rockets and mortars came as Islamic Jihad vowed to take revenge after a deadly attack against its members last week.

In a statement, the armed wings of Hamas and Islamic Jihad said their “joint response with dozens of rockets at the occupation’s military positions … is a declaration that these crimes cannot be tolerated in any way”.

Al-Qassam Brigades and al-Quds Brigades blamed Israel for Israel’s “aggression against our people” which it described as “an attempt to shift attention away from the crimes it carried out against our peaceful civilians”.

Ismail Radwan, an offical of Hamas, which runs the Gaza Strip, told Al Jazeera that Israel had escalated tensions.

“This escalation is very dangerous from the Zionist occupation and the occupation bares responsibility for this escalation and its ramifications,” Radwan said.

“The occupiers should know that the crimes will be responded to with resistance.”

Since March 30, at least 121 unarmed Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces in protests near the fence with Israel, in which they are demanding their right to return to the homes and lands their families were expelled from during the establishment of Israel.

“There is a lot of frustration here that after more than two months of protests and more than 100 people killed Palestinians here are no closer to ending Israel’s blockade of Gaza,” said Al Jazeera’s Bernard Smith, reporting from Gaza city.

‘Several launches’

Israeli officials said on Tuesday the military’s Iron Dome aerial defence system intercepted most of the 28 rockets and mortar rounds that were fired into Israel.

There were no reports of deaths on either side. The Israeli military said three soldiers suffered minor injuries.

Just hours after the Israeli strikes on Gaza, sirens were heard in southern Israel, the Israeli Haaretz daily reported. Israeli forces said on Twitter that it had intercepted “several launches”.

“No country in the world would or should accept such threats to its civilian population. Neither do we,” Emmanuel Nahshon, an Israeli foreign ministry spokesman, wrote on Twitter.

Gaza has been under a devastating Israeli-imposed blockade for the past 12 years, severely restricting access to everyday essentials and materials needed to maintain infrastructure.

On Tuesday, a group of Palestinians set sail from Gaza in an attempt to breach Israel’s naval blockade by boat.

The vessel, carrying patients needing medical care, students and job-seeking university graduates, was later captured by Israeli warships.

‘Zionist aggression’

The latest tensions come a day after Israeli troops killed a Palestinian who allegedly approached Gaza’s border with Israel, and two days after Israeli tank fire killed three people in an attack on a military observation post belonging to Islamic Jihad fighters.

An Islamic Jihad leader in Gaza said on Tuesday that “as long as there is occupation, resistance is a legitimate right for the Palestinian people”.

“Israel keeps up with its aggression, we stick to the two options: popular protests and resistance responding to the Zionist aggression,” said Khaled al-Batsh.

More than two million Palestinians are packed into the Gaza Strip, a narrow coastal enclave.

Jane Fonda Joins Black Lives Matter in Campaign to Place Police Under So-Called Civilian Control

Los Angeles: Jane Fonda has joined with Black Lives Mater in a campaign to stop the construction of two new jails and to give subpoena powers over the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to civilians committees – which would be dominated by those of her political ideology. The campaign was launched by Patrisse Cullors, a police and prison abolitionist who also is a co-founder of Black Lives Matter. Fonda says that black males, who account for 6% of the population, commit 52% of the homicides and murders in the US because of white supremacy. She says that “poor and working class Whites must be made to believe that they have privileges and advantages not afforded [to] Blacks.”

Academy Award-winning actress Jane Fonda, also known for her decades of political activism, has teamed with a co-founder of Black Lives Matter to promote a proposed ballot measure that would fundamentally transform the largest sheriff’s department in the world.

Fonda, 80, spent part of her Memorial Day weekend canvassing for the Reform L.A. Jails and Community Reinvestment Initiative. The campaign aims to stop the construction of two new correctional facilities and give a civilian oversight panel subpoena powers over the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD). In addition to operating the nation’s largest jail system, the agency also provides policing services to 42 contract cities.

Organizers have less than two weeks to gather the required 150,000 signatures needed for the initiative to qualify for the countywide ballot in November. On Friday, Fonda invited campaign staffers onto the set of her Netflix series “Grace and Frankie,” where she encouraged the cast and crew members to register to vote and support the cause.

“I’ve been working on a measure to reform L.A. jails, and we are collecting signatures outside on a table,” Fonda announced from Stage 21 of the Paramount Studios. “We need 80,000 signatures by June 11.”

The campaign was launched by Patrisse Cullors, a police and prison abolitionist who is also a co-founder of Black Lives Matter. She has admittedly spent several years organizing marginalized community members to “dismantle” law enforcement agencies, often focusing on LASD. Local media initially labeled the proposed referendum the “Black Lives Matter Ballot Measure,” but neither Cullors nor her allies have embraced that characterization.

Earlier this month, Cullors and Fonda shared a stage at the United State of Women (USOW) summit in Los Angeles. The duo explained to approximately 6,000 feminists in attendance that the criminal justice system is, foundationally, a racist institution.

As ABC News reported:

The memorable moments continued at the summit when actress Jane Fonda and Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of the “Black Lives Matter” movement, took the stage at the USOW together to speak about mass criminalization. Fonda started her speech off by saying, “When Trump was elected and the toxic bedrock of white supremacy in this country was exposed, I realized something … the lens through which I have been looking at race is too shallow — so I’m studying.”

She went on to say that “it takes more than empathy. It takes intention, to even begin to comprehend what people of color, no matter their class, face every day.”

Cullors followed Fonda’s speech by praising her and telling the auditorium “every white woman in the audience, please take heed.”

They both spoke about disproportionally high incarceration rates in African American communities and racism in America and advocated ending the war on drugs and the construction of new prisons.

Fonda attributed her self-professed lack of depth on racial issues to her skin color.

Since that summit, Fonda has hosted a campaign fundraiser at her home, publicized the ballot petition to her massive social media following, and called for low-income white people to coalesce with oppressed black and brown communities. Fonda claims they all share a “common enemy,” and therefore must band together to “fight for social, political and economic equality.”

“It has become clear to me as I study, that multiracial coalition-building is what the ruling class, the corporate elite, are the most afraid of,” Fonda wrote on her blog last week. “It is this fear of multiracial unity that explains why Trump and his surrogates play the racist card at his rallies and in his policy proposals. Poor and working class Whites must be made to believe that they have privileges and advantages not afforded [to] Blacks.”

ABC Cancels Roseanne Barr’s Show after Racist Tweets and Anti-Soros Remarks

ABC cancelled ‘Roseanne’, TV’s most watched show, claiming that the comedienne’s insult against Valerie Jarret was racist because she wrote that the former Obama administration official looked like “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.”  Another Roseanne tweet read, “soros’ goal: the overthrow of us constitutional republic by buying/backing candidates 4 local district attorney races who will ignore US law & favor ‘feelings’ instead-and call everyone who is alarmed by that ‘racist’.  She continued,”…By the way, George Soros is a nazi who turned in his fellow Jews 2 be murdered in German concentration camps & stole their wealth-were you aware of that?” Soros’ spokesman denied those charges. However, in a December 20, 1998, broadcast of 60 Minutes, Soros described his experience while in Nazi-occupied Hungary and admitted without any sign or remorse that he worked with his “protector” who confiscated property from Jews. -GEG

ABC announced Tuesday it is canceling its most successful sitcom in years, Roseanne, following Twitter comments made by the show’s star.

The network reeled over a series of tweets released by Roseanne Barr Tuesday morning, commenting on among other things globalist kingpin George Soros and former Obama adviser Valerie Jarett.

The issue began Monday night as Roseanne tweeted that former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton had married Soros’ nephew, and dubbed her “Chelsea Soros Clinton.”

Clinton responded saying she is not married to Soros’ nephew.

Barr next stepped up the attack by correcting herself to say Clinton is married to a corrupt senator’s son.

“CORRECTION: CHELSEA CLINTON IS NOT MARRIED TO A SOROS NEPHEW. HER HUSBAND IS THE SON OF A CORRUPT SENATOR, SO SORRY!:” Roseanne tweeted Tuesday.

But the Trump-supporting sitcom star wasn’t done yet.

Barr continued slamming Soros, who has been frequently accused of using his various non-governmental organizations to sow chaos and discord in numerous countries in attempts to initiate governmental overthrows.

The seasoned actress next took aim at former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett, who she claimed looked like “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.”

After going on to defend her criticism of Islam, Barr realized she had stepped too far beyond the PC police line.

Soros’ spokesman claimed the comments were “insulting” and “an affront to Mr. Soros and his family.”

“[Mr. Soros] did not collaborate with Nazis. He did not help round up people. He did not confiscate anybody’s property,” the spokesman claimed in a statement. “Such allegations are insulting to the victims of the Holocaust, to all Jewish people, and to anyone who honors the truth.”

US Will Dump $700-Billion into Obamacare Subsidies in 2018

The US Congressional Budget Office estimates that it will spend $700-billion on subsidies this year to help pay the health-care premiums for Americans under the age of 65. The extravagant benefits of the government’s so-called ‘affordable health care’ has forced insurers to raise premiums by 34% in 2018. -GEG

While Democrats have continuously griped about how Republican measures to slowly dismantle the Affordable Care Act (otherwise known as Obamacare) will sink their chances of cementing control of Congress in this year’s midterm elections, the US government is now estimating that it will spend $700 billion on subsidies this year to help provide Americans under the age of 65 with health insurance through their jobs or in government-sponsored health programs, according to a report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

The subsidies come from four main categories:

Roughly $300 billion is federal spending on programs like Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which typically help insure low-income people.

Almost as big are the tax write-offs that employers take for providing coverage to their workers.

Medicare-eligible people, such as the disabled, account for $82 billion.

Subsidies for Obamacare and for other individual coverage are the smallest segment, at $55 billion.

 

While Obamacare initially added tens of millions of Americans to the rolls of the insured, 29 million people will likely go without health coverage for an average of at least one month this year, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Scottish Government Greenlights Plan to Allow All Refugees and Asylum Seekers to Vote

In 2016, the Scottish parliament voted unanimously to lower the age of voting to 16. Now, leftists are pushing for refugees and asylum seekers residing in Scotland to vote, also. UKIP’s David Kurten says ‘progressives’ will benefit by using migrants to create “demographic gerrymandering” to win elections. He stated, “If this plan is implemented it will make a mockery of our democracy and will be a disgraceful display of putting British people last in our own country.” -GEG

The Scottish government has confirmed that asylum seekers and refugees will be handed the vote under plans to expand the franchise.

Parliamentary business minister Joe Fitzpatrick told MSPs on Wednesday: “it is right that people who make their lives here and contribute to society should have the right to vote, wherever they are from,” stating the government’s position on a consultation to expand the vote which was launched in December.

Scotland has already made use of powers devolved in 2016 which allow politicians to make big changes to the country’s electorate, with its parliament voting unanimously to lower the age of franchise to 16 in the same year.

Asked by the open borders-backing Scottish Greens, who have campaigned for giving every migrant the vote whether the government’s plans include asylum seekers, Fitzpatrick confirmed that extending the franchise “should include those who were welcomed here as refugees and people going through the process of seeking asylum”.

The Scottish National Party (SNP) minister said: “Scotland is a welcoming country and our intention to extend the opportunity to vote to all those legally resident in Scotland, whatever their place of birth, I think should extend to refugees and asylum seekers.”

His comments were welcomed by Green MSP for West Scotland Ross Greer, a tireless campaigner for mass migration who, on the one year anniversary this week of the Manchester terror attack in which 22 people were killed and 139 wounded, drew attention to his comment piece on the bombing, which argued the UK must open its borders to the migrants arriving in Europe on boats.

Angry CEOs Split from GOP over Immigration Reform as Trump Appears to Support His Base

GOP donors who support open borders are angry and are splitting from President Trump, because he is pushing for immigration reform that pressures companies to hire Americans with middle-class wages instead of hiring cheaper immigrant labor. A group of GOP-aligned donors and Never-Trump Republicans are teaming up with elite-left donors to the Democratic Party to push open borders. The business-led Congressional Leadership Fund Super PAC is backing RINOs who endorse the “discharge petition” that would circumvent Republican leadership and bring a Democrat-sponsored ‘no-strings amnesty’ bill to the House floor as early as June 25. -GEG

Pro-migration CEOs and investors are splitting from the GOP’s base of 2016 voters, just months after the base provided them with the congressional votes for a huge tax cut.

The donors are splitting from President Donald Trump mostly because of his push for an immigration reform that pressures companies to hire Americans with middle-class wages instead of hiring cheaper foreigners with the promise of taxpayer-funded citizenship.

However, Trump won 63 million voters in the 2016 election, giving him the political clout to block amnesties and the populist base to help him raise hundreds of millions of dollars in small-denomination donations.

Here are four ways in which angry GOP donors are going on strike while Trump promises to make immigration a central issue in the midterms:

1. David MacNeil, a Chicago-area CEOs who has donated $1 million to the GOP is closing his checkbook until one of his employees can get an amnesty because she was brought into the country by illegal-immigrant parents. According to Politico, MacNeil said:

“I’m saying this as a political donor who’s donated seven figures in the last couple of years: I will not donate any more money to anyone who doesn’t support DACA, period,” MacNeil said in a phone call while traveling in Italy. “I’m putting my money where my mouth is.”

“She is a critically important employee and it would be a disaster if I were not able to legally employ her,” MacNeil said. “They should not be playing political football, political blackmail with people’s lives. If you think about how people feel, they wake up at 3 in the morning, wondering: Am I going to be deported?”

2. The New York Times reported May 24 that a group of GOP-aligned donors and activists is secretly allying with elite-left donors to the Democratic Party. The GOP CEOs include several pro-migration advocates, such as Jerry Taylor, president of the Niskanen Center:

The network — composed of overlapping groups led by Democrats such as the donor Rachel Pritzker and several veteran Obama administration operatives, as well as leading Never Trump Republicans like Evan McMullin, Mindy Finn and William Kristol — aims to chart a middle path between a Republican base falling in line behind Mr. Trump and a liberal resistance trying to pull the Democratic Party left.

“If you’re a Republican who is concerned about the health of the liberal order and alarmed over the destruction of the norms of American democracy, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be willing to work with a Democrat who is equally concerned about those same matters,” said Jerry Taylor, a Republican who is president of the Niskanen Center, a moderate think tank that grew out of the libertarian Cato Institute.

The Niskanen Center hosts a semimonthly invitation-only gathering of Trump critics called the Meeting of the Concerned, which attendees are asked to keep confidential. While it is attended primarily by a rotating cast of Never Trump Republicans — including the pundit Mr. Kristol and the former Representative Mickey Edwards.

The Niskanen Center is very pro-migration, amid growing evidence that mass-migration drives down Americans’  wages and expands civic conflicts. The center says:

We believe that immigration yields positive economic and social benefits to the United States, to the global community, and—most importantly— to immigrants themselves. Our work seeks to advance the freer movement of people with four priorities: protecting vulnerable immigrant populations, relieving labor shortages by liberalized migration, strengthening humanitarian immigration, and energizing U.S. economic growth with foreign entrepreneurs, investors, and workers. We have been particularly focused on promoting a path to citizenship for Dreamers and arguing for reforms to increase the number of refugees resettled in the United States.

3. John Rowe, an Illinois-based energy-industry millionaire is threatening to stop donations unless the GOP embrace a policy of cheap-labor amnesty. He told Politico:

“Every member of the Illinois delegation knows this is one of the most important issues facing them and it determines how much money I’m giving them,” said Rowe, who heads a pro-immigrant business group in Illinois. This is the home state of Abraham Lincoln. We’re betraying our entire heritage if we don’t get this done.”

“In truth, we may not be a huge number of people, but in terms of being reliable, active donors, we’re people who give every year to candidates,” Rowe said.

While attending a recent fundraiser for House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Rowe said he was direct with the Louisiana congressman: “There’s a whole bunch of Republicans like me who simply aren’t going to keep giving money if you don’t get an immigration bill done.”

Rowe has argued that the GOP cannot win elections without identity-politics appeals to blacks, Latinos, and women. However, Trump won the 2016 election with very different pocketbook-politics appeals to the financial interests of all Americans.

4. The business-led Congressional Leadership Fund Super PAC is backing a majority of the GOP representatives who launched the discharge-petition process that could allow Democrats to pass a no-strings amnesty through the House before the 2018 election.

A partial list of CLF donors is provided by OpenSecrets.org. The list includes investment firms and hedge funds which gain from the GOP’s low-tax policies and also from the cheap wages and high real-estate values ensured by mass immigration. According to the CLF’s website:

“Founded in 2011, Congressional Leadership Fund has the endorsement of the entire House Republican Leadership. CLF supports candidates who promote the values of the center-right majority in the House of Representatives and counters efforts on the left, like Nancy Pelosi’s House Majority PAC and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

One of the CLF’s biggest donors is the American Action Network, a pro-migration group of investors and CEOs headed by a hotel investor, Fred Malek. In 2015, Malek’s group helped raise funds to run advertising against GOP members who oppose amnesty policies pushed by former President Barack Obama. So far, the group has contributed at least $12 million to the 2018 campaign.

Malek and his top aide, Corry Bliss, run the CLF. Bliss told the New York Times that he will help GOP candidates win reelection by highlighting local issues:
