After Calling for Trump Supporters to Be Harassed Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters Cancels Attending Two Events After She Says She Received Increased Threats
HONESTLY, WHAT DID MAD MAX THINK THE BLOW BACK WAS GOING TO BE, OR IS THAT WHAT SHE INTENDED ALL ALONG?
I am going to preface all of this by stating, no one, and I mean no one, neither those on the LEFT or the RIGHT should be making threats of any type, whether they be death threats or any type of threat. All any of you are trying to do is shut down Freedom of Speech. Threats of any type are just that, threats. And for you low IQ individuals out there, maybe you will one day realize just how ignorant you really are. That being said, going after one’s policies or protesting a politician is fine, as long as its civil. Calling for people to harass in public, not allowing them to be welcome anywhere like restaurants, gas stations or harassing them at their home is hardly civil. Of course people have a right to civil protest; however, what we are seeing today is hardly civil. Politicians like Maxine Waters know better.
As reported at CNN, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) had to cancel attending two events after she says she has received an increase in threats in the wake of her inappropriate and ignorant comments Waters made last week where she encouraged Left-wing protesters to harass members of Trump’s Cabinet in public spaces. Rep. Waters says she canceled two scheduled appearances in Alabama and Texas this weekend after saying she got threatening messages and “hostile mail” at her office, including “one very serious death threat.” If true, this is terrible. But what did she expect when she went as low as she did and called for the harassment of Trump cabinet members and supporters in the public square? You mess with the bull and you’ll get the horn. When you call for harassment, when you tell people to create a crowd and push back on people and tell them that they are not welcome any more, any place … good grief, are you really that low IQ that you do not comprehend that you will bring out the worst on the other side? Or maybe, just maybe, that’s what the divisive Mad Max was after all along.
Rep. Maxine Waters should never receive death threats or any type of threat. I condemn those that do such a thing. Just as I condemn Maxine Waters for trying to incite her peeps to harass and make threats against people she disagrees with. To not to condemn violence and harassment would be a double standard. Actually, I hold Rep. Waters to a high standard as she is supposed to be and act like a U.S. Representative where she is referred to in the House when called on as the “Gentle Lady” from California. Her actions of late only make the last part true, she is in fact from California. I would call on all politicians to ratchet it down a bit with the fanning of flames of harassment and violence. You can’t put the genie back in the bottle. That being said, there is proportionality of levels of civility, name calling like “Crooked Hillary,”low IQ” and “Pocahontas” from President Trump is hardly the same as shouting into a bull horn firing up a rabid base saying … “And if you see anyone from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them that they are not welcome, any more, anywhere.”
So the question that needs to be asked of Rep. Waters is when she sows the seeds of such divisions and decides to be the sole arbitrator of where individuals she disagrees with are welcome or allowed … wouldn’t others who disagree with her be allowed to hold her to the same standard? Everyone just chill. We used to be able to debate civilly, yet passionately without demonizing the other side, or did we like when Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson Claims “Republicans Want You To Die?”
Maxine Waters on Trump administration: ” … you create a crowd, you push back on them.
Rep. Maxine Waters said Thursday she’s seen an increase in threats since she made controversial comments last week encouraging protesters to heckle and harass members of Trump’s Cabinet in public spaces.
The California Democrat canceled two scheduled appearances in Alabama and Texas this weekend after saying she got threatening messages and “hostile mail” at her office, including “one very serious death threat” on Monday from an individual in Texas.
“As the President has continued to lie and falsely claim that I encouraged people to assault his supporters, while also offering a veiled threat that I should ‘be careful’, even more individuals are leaving (threatening) messages and sending hostile mail to my office,” she said in a statement.
“There was one very serious death threat made against me on Monday from an individual in Texas which is why my planned speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama were cancelled (sic) this weekend,” she continued. “This is just one in several very serious threats the United States Capitol Police are investigating in which individuals threatened to shoot, lynch, or cause me serious bodily harm.”
So she is looking to harass, not protest, harass cabinet members until they can’t take it anymore in working for President Trump. This is also a bullying tactic to threaten people who might work for the President or disagree with her. This is shameful. By the way, the unconscionable way of dealing with illegal children was also done under President Obama, but Mad Max was silent during the Obama years. Imagine that.
“For these members of his Cabinet who remain and try to defend him they’re not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they’re not going to be able to stop at a gas station, they’re not going to be able to shop at a department store, the people are going to turn on them, they’re going to protest, they’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the president ‘no I can’t hang with you, this is wrong this is unconscionable and we can’t keep doing this to children,’ ” Waters said on Saturday.
President Donald Trump Posthumously Pardons Boxer Jack Johnson … Finally, It Took President Trump to Right the Century Old Wrong
YEAH, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SUCH A RACIST, ISN’T HE … TRUMP PARDONS FIRST BLACK BOXING HEAVY WEIGHT CHAMPION.
Yesterday, President Donald Trump signed a full pardon for former heavyweight boxer Jack Johnson. For those who are too young or unfamiliar with who Jack Johnson was, he was the first black heavyweight boxing champion, who was convicted of so-called violating the Mann Act more than a century ago. And it is about time, it has only taken 97 years.
I find it amazing that it was President Donald Trump who finally issued this posthumously full pardon. Trump, the president who the LEFT and minorities call a racist. Really? One would have thought that Barack Obama would have righted this wrong. But no, he did not. Black America needs to wrap their head around that. How does the first black president in Barack Obama not pardon Jack Johnson? It is almost inconceivable. Or the so-called first black president, Bill Clinton? Maybe black America needs to take a real look at Trump and determine for themselves who really has their back. Who really wants them to succeed and who just wants to use them as political pawns.
Ex-heavyweight champion Jack Johnson pardoned by President Donald Trump for 1913 conviction
President Donald Trump signed a full posthumous pardon for former heavyweight boxer Jack Johnson in a surprise Oval Office ceremony alongside actor Sylvester Stallone, former heavyweight boxer Lennox Lewis, and others.
“It’s my honor to do it. It’s about time,” Trump said during the ceremony in the Oval Office.
“He was treated very rough, very tough,” Trump said of Johnson on Thursday as he signed the pardon.
In 1913, Johnson, a noted boxing legend, was convicted by an all-white jury with violating the Mann Act after transporting a white woman he was dating across state lines for “immoral purposes.”
He served one year in prison.
Under the Obama administration, the Department of Justice opted not to recommend a posthumous pardon for Johnson.
Jack Johnson, the former heavyweight champion of the world and the first African-American boxer to hold that title, was serving a 10-month stint at Leavenworth prison in 1921 when he sent President Woodrow Wilson a letter.
On Thursday, President Trump finally answered that letter, granting Johnson a full and unconditional pardon for his 1913 conviction of a crime that amounted to traveling with a white woman.
Along the way, Johnson’s 97-year road to a presidential pardon was paved by biographers, boxing champions, senators, journalists, historians, musicians — and ultimately the actor Sylvester Stallone, whose conversation with Trump about the Johnson case led to just the third posthumous pardon knowingly granted by a president.
Johnson was finally vindicated, but vindication wasn’t what he wanted. He wanted his freedom.
But Johnson did apply for a pardon in 1920, as he sat in prison to serve a one-year sentence for violating the Mann Act. Even the attorney general at the time had reservations about the case, since the Mann Act was intended to punish human trafficking — not consensual relationships.

Listen to the reaction and analysis from conservative radio host Larry O’Connor and Democratic strategist Michael Starr Hopkins. Sadly, the Democrat operative had to blame Donald Trump. SICK!
How the hell did this situation have to do anything to do with Donald Trump?
SO UNITED THINKS A DEMOCRAT MEMBER OF CONGRESS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN AN AVERAGE PAYING CUSTOMER?
United Airlines has supposedly apologized to a female passenger and given her a $500 travel voucher after she accused the company of giving away her first-class seat to a Texas congresswoman. Rep. Jackson Lee claims she did nothing wrong. Really, she didn’t ask to be upgraded, anything? How do you think the news story would read and the outrage would be if a black female passenger was booted from a flight because of a white. male, Republican Congressman?
United Airlines has apologized to a female passenger and given her a $500 travel voucher after she accused the company of giving away her first-class seat to a Texas congresswoman, an airline spokesperson said Monday.
Jean-Marie Simon, 63, of Washington, DC, claimed she was tossed aside to make way for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a Houston Democrat, on a Dec. 18 flight.
Airline officials told reporters that their internal systems showed that she canceled her trip following a weather delay, but Simon denies doing this.
A United spokesperson said the company had offered Simon the apology and voucher in an attempt to make things right. But she claims this didn’t happen, either.
“United has not apologized to me,” Simon told The Post in an email early Tuesday. “A low ranking employee responding to an online customer complaint apologized on the phone, in his individual capacity. He also said he would send my complaint up the chain at United. To date, I have not heard from United.”
Furthermore, Simon claims she was actually given her voucher back on Dec. 18 — “when United cancelled [her] ticket.”
The race-baitor Shelia Jackson Lee actually thinks of herself as the victim, as her special treatment actually screwed a passenger. How typical of liberals that they play the black and victim card.
In a statement, Jackson Lee said she overheard Simon speaking with an African American flight attendant and saw her snap the photo.
“Since this was not any fault of mine, the way the individual continued to act appeared to be, upon reflection, because I was an African American woman, seemingly an easy target along with the African American flight attendant who was very, very nice,” Jackson Lee said to the Houston Chronicle.
“This saddens me,” she continued. “Especially at this time of year given all of the things we have to work on to help people. But in the spirit of this season and out of the sincerity of my heart, if it is perceived that I had anything to do with this, I am kind enough to simply say sorry.”
Simon said the congresswoman was accusing her of racism when she “had no idea who was in my seat when I complained.”
ACTUALLY HE NEEDS TO RESIGN NOW!
In the wake of multiple sexual harassment claims, U.S. Representative John Conyers (D-MI) will not seek re-election to the House in 2018. After receiving praise for being a political Icon by Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the backlash against the Congressman has been massive following the many allegations of sexual harassment. The calls for Conyers to resign have been growing. However, he states that he will not be forced out of office. Wanna bet? The pressure will become too much for Conyers to stay. The archaic, dinosaur mentality of this man thinking he can withstand the sexual harassment and assault purge is just that, prehistoric. According to his attorney Arnold Reed, “He’s not going to be forced out of office, and no one has told him he has to leave. He has not indicated he’s going to resign at this point.” The key word here is “at this point.” It is only a matter of time. No one is immune to this wave, not even members of the black caucus.
The controversy swirling around Michigan Rep. John Conyers has intensified this week as former staff members accused him of sexual harassment.
Sources told Local 4 that Conyers will not seek re-election for a new term in the wake of the scandal, which continues to grow.
Two sources close to the Conyers situation told Local 4′s Rod Meloni that the congressman won’t resign. It’s his intent to announce in January that he won’t run for re-election in 2018.
His attorney said the allegations are not true, but Conyers is under increased scrutiny, and his family is rallying around him.
Conyers caught a bit of a break Wednesday as the Congressional Black Caucus met in Washington and Chairman Cedric Richmond disputed the stories saying he is pushing for Conyers to resign.
Among the former staffers accusing Conyers of sexual harassment is Deanna Maher, who claimed Conyers sexually harassed her three times, including undressing to his underwear in her bedroom while she was in a nightgown.
