"Apple Would Not Exist Without Immigration," Says Tim Cook: Or Put That Another way, American Workers Just Don't Cut It

In my conversations with officials here in Washington this week, I've made it clear that Apple believes deeply in the importance of immigration -- both to our company and to our nation's future. Apple would not exist without immigration, let alone thrive and innovate the way we do," stated the Apple CEO. 
So the nation that was the first to achieve powered flight, the nation that invented the transistor and developed the first commercial digital computer, the nation that put men on the Moon, is now so feeble that it cannot make a cell phone without a bunch of cheap immigrant Asian brains.

Actually, what Tim Cook means is that if Apple relied on American-raised talent, it would drive up wages in Silicon Valley, which would reduce Apple's profits, and lower the value of Tim Cook's stock options.

It would also mean the need for decent schools in America, not just for the Ivy League crowd, but for all ranks and races so that from among the common people would be found the talent to preserve America's role as a world leader in science and technology.

Taking things to an even greater extreme of absurdity, the ignoramuses over at the Atlantic are working up a sweat over the harm that Trump's ban on admission to America of a handful of conference attendees from the Middle East will do to American science. As if. Anyone who knows anything at all about science knows perfectly well that conferences are merely social events at which information of importance is rarely exchanged. This is, after all, the age of the Internet when scientists are able to communicate with everyone in their field anytime, anywhere.

As for scientists from Iran, well the individuals affected by the Trump ban might represent rare exceptions, but the truth is, Iran is not a scientific power house.

But this rubbish obviously has nothing whatever to do with Apple's ability to make cell phones or America's scientific community. It's all about dissing Trump, an impediment to the New World Order of George H. W. Bush, George Soros and, if you want to trace the idea to its roots, Cecil Rhodes.

As Trudeau Minor told the New York Times, Canada is a post-national state. In other words, fuck the Canucks, I'm on board the globalization bandwagon, which means driving wages in the West to the global mean, which is to say about one fifth of what they are now.  That is also the policy of the US establishment, who set up an election where Low-Energy JEB would fight a dying Hillary, on the understanding that whoever won would carry through with the TPP, and other measures as required by the global corporations.

Now Trump's threatening to bugger that up so he has to be either eliminated or scared into compliance. Hence the current effort at color revolution in America.


WSJ: Now Billionaire Bezos Adds His Company, Amazon, to the List of American Corporations Declaring American Workers Incapable of Doing the Job Plus Golden Sacks (Poor bastards may have to pay American workers more); and Gates joins the attack (Pity the miserable sod, he might lose a few bucks having to hire more Americans). Meantime scumbag globalists pile on Elon Musk for failing to attack Trump, Meantime, Starbucks decides to hire thousands of refugees instead of American citizens.

Bloomberg: Trump to require American firms to hire Americans first?
Black American unemployment rate is double the national average but Starbucks is looking to hire refugees.
