Posted on 06/20/2014 8:52:36 PM PDT by Noremac
Rupert Murdoch on Wednesday wrote an editorial in the Wall Street Journal, one of Murdochs media holdings, about an issue that has been on his wish list for years: immigration reform.
From it comes Murdochs Immigrant Elevator Speech.
I chose to come to America and become a citizen because America was and remains the most free and entrepreneurial nation in the world. Our history is defined by people whose character and culture have been shaped by ambition, imagination and hard work, bound together by a dream of a better life.
This is all quite charming until you realize that Murdoch is probably one of the worst examples of a freeloading immigrant. Murdoch likes America all right. He likes the perks of living here, while leaving his profits in 152 offshore tax havens such as Bermuda and the Cayman Islands. While media and entertainment empires like Disney pay 31 percent tax, Murdochs News Corp pays 6 percent.
Some of Murdochs largest investments in America yield impressive returns. Murdochs business tax obligations are trimmed to the bone by spending $27 million lobbying Congress for tax carve outs. What Murdoch saved on taxes largely financed his $5 Billion buy out of Dow Jones.
Looking back on Murdochs fast tracked American citizenship process, it is transparent that his real motive was not his admiration for America, but to obtain a pass to go on a massive media shopping spree.

Does 40,000 innocent children brought to the US/Mexico Border due to illegal promises and illegal Executive Dreamer Orders from Obama qualify Obama to be placed on the US State Departments Blacklist for Human Trafficking?
Didn’t Murdoch just have lunch with the President of the United States, Valerie Jarrett?
I think they discussed immigration.
The restaurant must have had American BLOOD on the menu.
(note to self: line bird cage tomorrow with Wall Street Journal.)
I love your posts.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
If Rupert the RED loves the illegals so much maybe about a million of them should be shipped over to his house to live. He needs a taste of their freeloading.
Hey there, Rupie. How ‘bout you chartering a few thousand
planes to fly some of these Central American “immigrants”
to Australia and New Zealand?
It’s closing time, Rupert.
