PRESIDENT TRUMP BETTER FOR BLACKS THAN BARACK OBAMA …
Candidate Donald Trump once asks black America when campaigning for president when asking for their vote, what do you have to lose? You have voted Democrat for years and got nothing, let’s see what a Republican can do to help. And the results are in.
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 32% of likely voters believe life for young black Americans has gotten better under President Trump. Even 28% of black voters say that black Americans are better off today under Trump. Compare that with the 15% who said the same during Barack Obama’s last year of his presidency. WOW!! And you wonder why the LEFT, Democrats, the liberal MSM and liberal trolls on the internet attack President Trump and anyone who has a positive story, comment or message about him? President Trump is going things for the black community, not because he is pandering to them, because when Trump is Making America Great Again, black Americans are included. The May jobs report showed that black unemployment his a historic all time low of 5.9%.
Who is Doing a Better Job for black America? Hint: It’s the guy in the red tie.
Voters feel young black Americans are better off under President Trump than they were under Barack Obama, the nation’s first black president.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey shows that 32% of Likely U.S. Voters believe life for young black Americans has gotten better since Trump’s election. Slightly more (36%) say life for these Americans has gotten worse, while 26% think it has stayed about the same.
But in March 2014, just 16% said life for young black Americans had gotten better since Obama’s election five-and-a-half years earlier. By July 2016 in Obama’s final year in office, only 13% thought life was better for young blacks.
Even black voters are nearly twice as likely (28%) to say young black Americans are better off now than they were in the closing year of Obama’s presidency (15%).
What are Democrats to do? Donald Trump has doubled the numbers of Barack Obama when it comes to dealing with black America. Trump is making it possible for all, including blacks, to get back to work. A pay check is so much more rewarding and meaningful than food stamps and welfare. And because of this, the LEFT is losing their collective minds. It is the LEFT’s worst nightmare when blacks realize that Trump is not as racist as they have been told, but doing a good job for them. If Trump maintains these types of positive polling numbers within the black community, there will be no blue wave in 2018, but a red tsunami and a 2020 Donald Trump reelection in 2020.
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.
KEEP IN MIND, THIS IS COMING FROM A FORMER CLINTON POLLSTER AND POLITICAL STRATEGIST …
You know the Mueller investigation is a sham when former Clinton pollster and political strategist Mark Penn says it is time to end the charade and witch hunt against President Donald Trump to protect us all. Penn has stated that the Mueller probe has been fruit of the poisonous tree of the Hillary Clinton paid for Steele dossier , “What was originally sought after wasn’t found. This is now 1998 all over again with an investigation somehow related to a porn star. Come on, we need to get a North Korea deal, we need to push back on the Iranians. We need a good economy. We cannot treat our White House, presidents, people working campaigns and put them under this kind of Star Chamber investigation and expect our government to function.”
The “deep state” is in a deep state of desperation. With little time left before the Justice Department inspector general’s report becomes public, and with special counsel Robert Mueller having failed to bring down Donald Trump after a year of trying, they know a reckoning is coming.
At this point, there is little doubt that the highest echelons of the FBI and the Justice Department broke their own rules to end the Hillary Clinton “matter,” but we can expect the inspector general to document what was done or, more pointedly, not done. It is hard to see how a year-long investigation of this won’t come down hard on former FBI Director James Comey and perhaps even former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who definitely wasn’t playing mahjong in a secret “no aides allowed” meeting with former President Clinton on a Phoenix airport tarmac.
With this report on the way and congressional investigators beginning to zero in on the lack of hard, verified evidence for starting the Trump probe, current and former intelligence and Justice Department officials are dumping everything they can think of to save their reputations.
But it is backfiring. They started by telling the story of Alexander Downer, an Australian diplomat, as having remembered a bar conversation with George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign. But how did the FBI know they should talk to him? That’s left out of their narrative. Downer’s signature appears on a $25 million contribution to the Clinton Foundation. You don’t need much imagination to figure that he was close with Clinton Foundation operatives who relayed information to the State Department, which then called the FBI to complete the loop. This wasn’t intelligence. It was likely opposition research from the start.
In no way would a fourth-hand report from a Maltese professor justify wholesale targeting of four or five members of the Trump campaign. It took Christopher Steele, with his funding concealed through false campaign filings, to be incredibly successful at creating a vast echo chamber around his unverified, fanciful dossier, bouncing it back and forth between the press and the FBI so it appeared that there were multiple sources all coming to the same conclusion.
Time and time again, investigators came up empty. Even several sting operations with an FBI spy we just learned about failed to produce a Delorean-like video with cash on the table. But rather than close the probe, the deep state just expanded it. All they had were a few isolated contacts with Russians and absolutely nothing related to Trump himself, yet they pressed forward. Egged on by Steele, they simply believed Trump and his team must be dirty. They just needed to dig deep enough.
Former Democrat Mayor Willie Brown of SF Says … “It’s time for the Democrats to stop bashing President Trump.”
FORMER DEMOCRAT SF MAYOR SAYS STOP BASHING TRUMP OR CHECK YOURSELF INTO A 12 STEP PROGRAM …
Wow, even Democrats are starting to call Trump derangement syndrome a mental illness. As reported at the SF Chronicle, Former San Fransisco Mayor Willie Brown said it is time for Democrats to stop bashing President Donald Trump. Brown went on to say, they might even need to check themselves into a 12-step program. Brown actually said the words that most all in the LEFT and MSM refuse to admit, President Trump is more popular with the American people than they will ever admit. Trump’s policies are popular and working. The economy is booming, unemployment rates for blacks and Hispanics are at all-time lows, and his and the GOP’s approval ratings are trending upward. This even with all the negative bashing from Democrats and their mouth pieces in the MSM. Trump is making America great again and all the LEFT has is Trump Derangement Syndrome.
It’s time for the Democrats to stop bashing President Trump.
It’s not going to be easy, given his policies and personality. It might even mean checking into a 12-step program. But setting a winning agenda is like maneuvering an aircraft carrier. It takes time to change course. And if they want to be on target for the November midterm elections, the Democrats need to start changing course now.
Like it or not, a significant number of Americans are actually happy these days. They are making money. They feel safe, and they agree with with the president’s protectionist trade policies, his call for more American jobs, even his immigration stance.
The jobs growth reports, the North Korea summit and the steady economy are beating out the Stormy Daniels scandal and the Robert Mueller investigation in Middle America, hands down.
So you are not going to win back the House by making it all about him.
Michael Moore gave this same warning to the LEFT prior to the 2016 elections, they didn’t listen.
#HIM TOO: Four Women Accuse New York’s Attorney General Eric Schneiderman of Physical Abuse & Assault … Schneiderman Denies … Schneiderman Resigns From Office
WOW, THAT WAS FAST … #HIM TOO!!!
Last night The New Yorker dropped the bombshell that New York’s attorney general Eric Schneiderman was being accused by four women of physical abuse. Two of the women remained anonymous, while two others made their name’s public. The women allege that Schneiderman repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed and never with their consent. Manning Barish and Selvaratnam categorize the abuse he inflicted on them as “assault.” Following the allegations in a statement, Schneiderman said, “In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in nonconsensual sex, which is a line I would not cross.” But one woman stated that State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman called his Sri Lankan girlfriend his “brown slave” and wanted her to refer to him as “Master.” Whether this be role play or not, some how I double whether this is considered acceptable behavior or word choice in this day and age.
Eric Schneiderman, New York’s attorney general, has long been a liberal Democratic champion of women’s rights, and recently he has become an outspoken figure in the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment. As New York State’s highest-ranking law-enforcement officer, Schneiderman, who is sixty-three, has used his authority to take legal action against the disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein, and to demand greater compensation for the victims of Weinstein’s alleged sexual crimes. Last month, when the Times and this magazine were awarded a joint Pulitzer Prize for coverage of sexual harassment, Schneiderman issued a congratulatory tweet, praising “the brave women and men who spoke up about the sexual harassment they had endured at the hands of powerful men.” Without these women, he noted, “there would not be the critical national reckoning under way.”
Now Schneiderman is facing a reckoning of his own. As his prominence as a voice against sexual misconduct has risen, so, too, has the distress of four women with whom he has had romantic relationships or encounters. They accuse Schneiderman of having subjected them to nonconsensual physical violence. All have been reluctant to speak out, fearing reprisal. But two of the women, Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam, have talked to The New Yorker on the record, because they feel that doing so could protect other women. They allege that he repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed and never with their consent. Manning Barish and Selvaratnam categorize the abuse he inflicted on them as “assault.” They did not report their allegations to the police at the time, but both say that they eventually sought medical attention after having been slapped hard across the ear and face, and also choked. Selvaratnam says that Schneiderman warned her he could have her followed and her phones tapped, and both say that he threatened to kill them if they broke up with him. (Schneiderman’s spokesperson said that he “never made any of these threats.”)
State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman called his Sri Lankan girlfriend his “brown slave” and wanted her to refer to him as “Master,” the woman says.
Harvard-educated activist writer Tanya Selvaratnam told the New Yorker magazine that her yearlong affair with Schneiderman “was a fairytale that became a nightmare” — and quickly escalated into violence in the bedroom, even as he begged for threesomes.
“Sometimes, he’d tell me to call him Master, and he’d slap me until I did,” Selvaratnam said.
“He started calling me his ‘brown slave’ and demanding that I repeat that I was ‘his property.’
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has resigned following the stunning New Yorker report on four women accusing him of physical violence.
In response to the report, Schneiderman denied he engaged in any non-consensual behavior and said he had been “role-playing.” Governor Andrew Cuomo and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand had called on him to resign earlier tonight.
And then, just hours after the report was released, Schneiderman put out a statement announcing his resignation.
“It’s been my great honor and privilege to serve as attorney general for the people of the State of New York,” Schneiderman said. “In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me.”
“While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.”
Lost in this story of abuse, assault and sick perversion is that Eric Schneiderman was a long time Trump nemesis where Trump tweeted in 2013 … Just as Trump predicted in 2013 tweet: “Weiner is gone, Spitzer is gone – next will be lightweight A.G. Eric Schneiderman… Wait and see, worse than Spitzer or Weiner” Wow, does Trump want to pick the next Lottery numbers? It makes one wonder what did people know about Eric Schneiderman and namely, what did Democrat New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo know?
