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.
68% OF AMERICANS CREDIT TRUMP FOR MAKING AMERICAN ECONOMY GREAT AGAIN …
According to a recent CBS News Nation tracker poll, 68% of Americans give President Donald Trump the credit for the good economy we are currently experiencing. OUCH, that has to sting the liberal MSM. With all of the negative press coverage provided by the MSM, it would appear that Americans could care less what the bias media has to say and are looking at their wallets, pocketbooks and around them for themselves. The poll also states that 7 in 10 of whom say they’d prefer a candidate he backs and view Trump as a positive factor. Maybe the idiotic establishment GOP would like to get on board with the American people ahead of the 2018 primaries.
What does this mean? The closer we get to the 2018 midterm elections, the more the American people are favoring Trump and the GOP. The once huge double digit lead by Democrats in the polls are gone. Americans no longer have to listen to the Democrat and liberal media rhetoric, they can evaluate the results of Trump’s policies for themselves. Blue wave, really? Haven’t we seen this game play out before the 2016 elections when the LEFT said Hillary Clinton was a sure thing and the Democrats were going to take back the House and the Senate?
Nearly 2 in 3 Americans think the nation’s economy is in good shape, and most of them believe President’s Trump’s policies are at least somewhat responsible for that. More Republicans rate the economy positively than do Democrats.
As Congressional primaries continue and Americans look ahead six months to their midterm votes, Mr. Trump looks like a positive factor among Republicans, 7 in 10 of whom say they’d prefer a candidate he backs — but the president’s influence is limited to his own party. More Independents say they’re less likely to support a candidate backed by Mr. Trump.
The economy and the president’s support
This survey has followed the levels of Trump support and opposition over time. Today, buoyed by their feelings that the economy is at least somewhat good, the ranks of Mr. Trump’s strongest backers have risen to 22 percent from 18 percent back in January. Many of these backers had previously adopted a wait-and-see approach, labeling themselves as more conditional in their support a few months ago. Supporters overall – both strong and conditional — together remain less than a majority, however, while the ranks of the strongest Trump opponents have remained steady.
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.
President Donald Trump Welcomes Home Three Americans Imprisoned in North Korea Back to the USA (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump shook hands with former three detainees Kim Dong-chul, Kim Hak-song and Tony Kim as he welcomed them home after their imprisonment in North Korea. The visuals below in the videos are amazing. You can witness the emotion from these three men and their new found freedom and what freedom truly looks like when it is taken away. Thank you President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. One never expects good things to happen at 3 AM in the morning; however, these are the types of stories that makes it proud to make you an America.
Even CNN had to acknowledge President Donald Trump’s amazing accomplishments, History in the making as Trump welcomes prisoners home.
Just maybe, the extraordinary scene that unfolded in the dead of night on an airfield outside Washington early Thursday is the start of something truly historic.
President Donald Trump welcomed home three American prisoners from North Korea, citing their release as proof that his diplomacy with the isolated state is delivering. In what must have been a surreal experience, Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak-song and Kim Sang Duk — who were only released from custody on Wednesday — were suddenly plunged into a media circus.
“I think you probably broke the all-time in history television rating for 3 o’clock in the morning,” Trump told reporters at Joint Base Andrews as he stood alongside the freed prisoners.
In extraordinary scenes, Trump and the first lady clapped and cheered as the men walked down the steps with their arms in the air and giving triumphant ‘V’ signs signifying both peace and victory.
Their first steps back on American soil came hours earlier, in Alaska, when the plane carrying them home stopped to refuel.
On the tarmac in suburban Maryland, Trump said: ‘These are great people. Frankly, we didn’t think this was going to happen, but it did. It was important to get these people out. This is a special night for these three really great people.’

Trump also thanked Kim Jong-un for freeing ‘the folks early.’ calling it ‘a wonderful thing’ and adding he believes the North Korean despot ‘really wants to do something’ and bring the hermit kingdom ‘into the real world.’
He said: ‘We’re starting off on a new footing. I really think we have a very good chance of doing something very meaningful, and if anybody would’ve said that five years ago, 10 years ago, even a year ago, you would’ve said, ‘That’s not possible.’
‘My proudest achievement will be when we denuclearize that entire [Korean] peninsula,’ he added.
