Chumph Winery Begs for H1B Visas…For Cheap Labor to Lay Off Americans

How exactly minimum wage labor became a resource “of particular skill or reknown” where there is a shortage of America talent in America is a good question…

I mean…It don’t take a PhD to stomp grapes for a living. French Peasants have been doing a marvelous job of it for over 1,000 years.

Bend over Trumpazoids!

Trump Winery begs Labor Department to hire foreign workers over Americans

Image result for Kluge Wine

Originally developed by Patricia Kluge, and bought by Trump when having some financial difficulties, the only drinkable wine left is still developed by Patricia – the Sparkling Wines. The rest is basically recycled toilet water.

Donald J. Trump, the man who’s entire campaign was predicated on bringing American jobs back to America, vows to keep his promise to the people, a Virginia winery owned by son Eric Trump is petitioning to government for the opportunity to hire foreign workers, the New York Post reports.

The request, filed by the Trump Winery on Dec. 2 and posted online by the Department of Labor Wednesday, show that the Trump-owned vineyard is requesting six foreign workers under the federal H-2 program, a temporary work visa that allows US employers bring foreign labor.

According to the application, Trump Vineyard will pay the H-2 workers $10.72 an hour for 40 hours a week, as well as an unpaid lunch break. It will run from January until June 2017.

ABC News reports the winery applied for the 19 visas through the H-2 program in 2016; it made similar requests in 2014 and 2015.

Trump ran on a pro-worker populist platform throughout his campaign, and maintained that image despite numerous reports indicating the president-elect hires foreign workers at his establishments, including his Florida estate Mar-a-Lago.

A New York Times report published in February revealed the Trump Organization rejected hundreds of US applicants in favor of hiring foreign workers:

“[N]early 300 United States residents have applied or been referred for jobs as waiters, waitresses, cooks and housekeepers there,” the New York Times wrote. “But according to federal records, only 17 have been hired. In all but a handful of cases, Mar-a-Lago sought to fill the jobs with hundreds of foreign guest workers from Romania and other countries.”

“You can’t get help,” Trump told MSNBC’s Morning Joe in September, defending his company’s decision to hire guest workers over US citizens. “Getting help in Palm Beach during the season is almost impossible.”

Another Chumph lie – the Winery is located in Charlotesville, Va…Not Palm Beach

Highway to Hell

The ego of this minister is larger than believable. First asking his congregation to buy him a $68 million jet…

And now a highway.

The home Creflo’s parishioners paid for with plenty of parking for his several Rolls Royces.

Moneybags Pastor Creflo Dollar Might Get His Very Own Highway

Controversial megachurch pastor Creflo Dollar may soon have a namesake highway to coast down in his two Rolls-Royces.

It isn’t exactly a street paved with gold and, alas, it doesn’t include any pearly gates, but controversial mega-church pastor Creflo Dollar might be getting his own highway.

A Georgia state senator filed a resolution to rename a portion of Old National Highway in Dollar’s honor.

“It is abundantly fitting and proper that this enduring example of God’s message be recognized by dedicating a road in his honor,” state Sen. Donzella James (D-Atlanta), who appears to have nothing better to do, wrote in her proposed legislation. Last year, James successfully lobbied the legislature to change the name of a section of Spring Street to Gladys Knight Highway.

At least one Atlanta blogger is calling foul.

“There are many, many God-fearing Christians of every denomination who believe [Dollar’s] message is sinful at best, exploitative at worst, and want as much distance between their government and this man as possible,” wrote George Chidi forGeorgiaPol.com.

World Changers Church International, where Dollar is the founding senior pastor, sits in James’s south Fulton County district just outside of Atlanta. Its 8,500-seat World Dome is purportedly home to around 30,000 members, many of whom are pressed to “tithe” 10 percent of their gross earnings to support the ministry. At one point, in 2006, the praying enterprise took in nearly $70 million in cash collections.

While Dollar—who is often derisively called “Rev. Cash-Flow”—has never disclosed his income, he has been widely criticized for enriching himself on the backs of his working-poor and middle-class congregation. The sanctuary, built for $18 million without bank financing, stands in a predominantly black, economically depressed neighborhood. Meanwhile, Dollar owns two Rolls-Royces and flies around the world in a private jet. He made headlines last year when the church attempted to raise $65 million for a brand new luxury Gulfstream.

Dollar “renounced” his church salary in a 2007 interview with The Associated Press and said he relies on personal investments, including income from book sales. A U.S. Senate committee investigated Dollar, along with Bishop Eddie Long of New Birth Baptist Church and four other faith leaders, but ultimately found no wrongdoing.

“Some people hear the name Creflo Dollar, and immediately sing his praises,” Andre Walker blogged at Georgia Unfiltered.

“Others hear the name Creflo Dollar, and think he’s a two-bit shyster who uses the Bible and poor religious people to support his lavish lifestyle through the so-called prosperity gospel.”

Dollar, who faced allegations that he punched and choked his daughter in June 2012, hasn’t said a word about James’s proposal. According to police reports, the pastor “slapped” his 15-year-old daughter in the face and “choked her for about five seconds.” Another of Dollar’s daughters, who was 19 at the time, allegedly witnessed the attack. In the heat of the accusations, the preacher denied that the altercation unfolded as his daughters reported and issued a public statement, saying he would never hurt them. His supporters pointed to a father’s “duty” to discipline his children….

Republican Senate Candidate J. D. Hayworth a Pitchman for a Scam

This is J.D.  Hayworth, the Tea Bagger Republican, who is trying to unseat John McCain as the Republican candidate for senate in Arizona.

Republican Senate challenger J.D. Hayworth appeared in a 2007 television infomercial in which he helped convince viewers that they could rake in big bucks by attending seminars that would teach them how to apply for federal grants that they wouldn’t have to pay back.

National Grants Conferences, the Florida-based company that hosted the classes and produced the informercial, has faced criticism from multiple state attorneys general and Better Business Bureaus.

Hayworth, a former Arizona congressman who is running against incumbent Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in the Aug. 24 GOP primary, made the infomercial after losing his U.S. House seat in the 2006 election. References to his TV appearance on behalf of National Grants…

The infomercial promotes seminars that ostensibly instruct attendees how to get the “free money grants.” Tucson TV station KVOA did an investigation of National Grants Conferences that you can watch here. The TV station’s investigative team found that the workshops cost from $999 to $1,200 and federal government grants really aren’t even available to individuals.

“A grant expert tells us that the information they’re trying to sell you is available for free – on the Internet or here, at the Pima County Public Library,” KVOA’s Tom McNamara said in the 2009 report. “No. 2, a simple Internet search inputting just the company’s name reveals hundreds of complaints from people all across the country about National Grants Conferences. And No. 3, some Better Business Bureaus nationwide rate the company an ‘F.’ Separately, the attorney general in Vermont sued the company and forced them to tone down their advertising and the claims they were making.”

Those “free Government Grants”?

Consumeraffairs.com

“…every single free-money government-grant offer is a scam. Period.

Telemarketing Fraud andNational Consumer’s League

“You may have seen an ad, gotten a call, or received an email offering “free government grants.” The people making these offers claim to represent the United States government or groups assisting the federal government with grant distribution. They might ask for personal information such as your Social Security and bank account numbers and promise to deposit the grant directly into your account. They might ask you to pay a “processing fee” for the grant. But instead of giving you a grant, their real plan is to steal your identity, your money, or both.”

From Fraud Guides

You don’t need to join the Federal Grant Association to receive a Federal grant. Fall for this telemarketing scam and you could be out as much as $5000

Here is the Grants.gov site.

Lastly – the Government doesn’t give money away for free. Almost all of these grants require work of a technical or skilled nature, and some experience in delivering the same technology or job on your resume. If the grant is to build a rest stop in a National Park – you need to show you have all the construction licenses, certifications, and have built similar structures. If the Grant is for Cancer Research, you need academic and professional credentials in that area of research. And no – looking though a microscope in 9th Grade Biology ain’t gonna cut it.

This is about a sleazy as it gets.
