This should tell you all you need to know about Representative John Lewis and his ilk in the present day Democrat party. He and his party abandoned MLK Jr.'s vision long ago. http://patriotupdate.com/john-lewis-rages-mlks-family-supporting-trump/ And, check out this item. If the political left would just listen to real people they could learn a few things about what hard working and responsible blacks about the treatment they have been subjected to for many, many years by the progressive/liberals and Democrat party. https://fee.org/articles/my-lyft-ride-with-a-black-trump-supporter-on-mlk-day/
In this piece former black panther Mason Weaver blasts John Lewis and the Congressional Black Caucus out of the water. He is 100 percent right in his assessment. https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/01/17/mason-weaver-has-a-dream-representative-john-lewis-has-a-nightmare/ More and more black people are coming to the realization that it has long been the Democrat party that is their enemy. You might also be interested in what the brother of Medgar Evers has to say about Trump. It is the item right below the one dealing with Mason Weaver. The political left's racist elites are losing their grip and control over members of the black community who think for themselves and reject liberal lies.
If you don't think the political left is prone to planned violence against those who do not agree with them you need to read this item. http://www.wnd.com/2017/01/video-acid-attack-plot-for-trump-inauguration/ And, these are the people who "claim" to be the tolerant ones who occupy the "high" ground. They have been buried in the swamp for so long they don't have enough self awareness to understand how low they have sunk. http://hotair.com/archives/2017/01/17/the-protests-and-boycotts-coming-on-friday-offer-a-serious-opportunity-for-conservatives/?
This is a harsh indictment of progressivism. http://www.oftwominds.com/blogjan17/fake-progressives1-17.html Seems to be mostly accurate to me. Hopefully wisdom will dawn and they will see the error of their ways.
This is the consequence of the mainstream media abandoning its mission and joining forces with the very government it was charged with keeping in line. http://townhall.com/columnists/susanstamperbrown/2017/01/16/when-the-press-loses-credibility-n2272246? It no longer serves the public. It is now the propaganda agent for the political left no matter the party in power.
This item offers proof that is evident throughout history of government bureaucracies that inevitably become self serving dictatorial, oppressive and corrupt agencies. This is but one of many examples. http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/federal-judge-orders-homeland-security-produce-preservation-requests-email-records-secretary-jeh-johnson-top-dhs-officials/? The only solution is for congress to trim their sails by limiting their funding and by legislation eliminating self assigned duties and responsibilities and the subsequent enforcement rules they create for American citizens to obey or pay the price for defying their senseless mandates. It has often been said that within their spheres bureaucracies are more powerful than the president because they can always wait them out since they are permanent fixtures while elected officials come and go. That is why legislative controls and tough oversight are mandatory.
A very interesting contrast of conservatism and progressivism. http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2016/12/conservatism_and_progressivism_two_irreconcilable_worldviews.html Another item dealing with differences. https://thehornnews.com/democrats-need-read/
Democrats are steaming after the slaughter they took in the last election. They intend to disrupt Trump as much as they can. They care not about good governance or the people as is indicative of the poor state of the nation after eight years of Obama. They relentless seek control. To that end they now intend to obstruct anything Trump and the Republicans try to do. They have decayed as a party to nothing but dishonest partisans and obstructionists and do not seem to understand the harm done to the country over the past eight years. http://www.libertyheadlines.com/dems-aim-trump-nominees-unlike-gops-speedy-ok-obama-cabinet/? Because Trump has already demonstrated more competence than Obama ever did they need to stop him in his tracks to hide their embarrassment of their own incompetence. Senator Schumer is picking up the banner Senator Harry Reid used to carry as obstructionist in chief of the senate and protector of President Obama's nefarious agenda. The difference is that Schumer will be fighting Trump's agenda whether legitimate or not. http://hotair.com/archives/2017/01/04/schumer-trump-better-pick-a-mainstream-supreme-court-nominee-or-else/?
Thought provoking. http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2016/12/fake_news_and_fake_intelligence.html More interesting assessment of why so much fake news is out there. You may disagree with this assessment but do not dismiss it out of hand. There is considerable evidence that much if not all of what he says could well be true. He is not prone to making Fake News proclamations. https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2017/01/12/why-fake-news-matters/ Here is another interesting assessment this author has penned. https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2017/01/09/the-op-unelected-agents-now-infiltrating-critical-infrastructures/ This is his latest. https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2017/01/21/watching-major-media-commit-suicide/ What do you think?
If this proves to be true it is a definite cause for legal action against all of those involved, especially Obama. Quote: "After angering Israel and Jewish Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this morning one of Barack Obama’s most closely guarded secrets has been leaked: proof of Obama’s alliance with Muslim countries." and, "To summarize, the leaked minutes reveal the Obama administration:
1. Knows their Muslim allies are behind Middle Eastern terror but asked them to slow down, not because of the loss of life, but because it would hurt “their” cause.
2. The Obama administration have been controlling the Palestinian cause and actions for the last 8 years which have included suicide bombings, terror attacks, and act of international war.
3. They see Trump as dangerous as he will oppose “their” cause.
This revelation is the latest and most damning evidence of the Obama alliance with his Muslim allies to advance a pro-Islam, anti-Israel, anti-American agenda for the last eight years. This evidence appears to have been accidentally leaked by the Egyptians, perhaps through Israeli subterfuge, in the form of the minutes of a meeting between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, National Security Adviser Susan Rice and Palestinian officials." http://ipatriot.com/leaked-proof-obamas-alliance-muslim-countries/
Do you think Obama is a moral and ethical man? His ego is so large that he really must think those attributes describe him. But most if not all rational thinkers would beg to differ. http://townhall.com/columnists/benshapiro/2016/12/28/obamas-skewed-moral-universe-n2264087? Given his claim that he is proud that his eight year run was free of any missteps or scandals lets look at the facts. http://www.americanlibertyreport.com/articles/obamas-eight-years-a-catalog-of-misdeeds/ More is included in the next few items.
During his tenure poverty increased, welfare roles grew, people out of work exceeded all time numbers, food stamp recipients grew in record numbers and more. Meanwhile he squanders $100 million of our taxes for his pleasure. What a guy. http://www.theblaze.com/news/2016/12/31/watchdog-group-obama-spent-nearly-100-million-of-taxpayer-money-on-travel-as-president/
We have all heard Obama pat himself on the back for his great job performance as president. Facts belie that claim. Here are just few of a large number of reasons his self assessment is a gross falsehood and serves as another example of his prodigious productions of fake news. http://www.americanlibertyreport.com/articles/obamas-eight-years-a-catalog-of-misdeeds/ This is just one of many examples of his failed legacy. http://www.thecollegefix.com/post/30772/
More about the "great" job Obama did while in office. The number of unemployed people of working age increased by 18.09 percent. Do not for one minute believe the unemployment numbers Obama and the government present. They do not count people who have dropped out of the labor force because they could not find work. Quote: "The final jobs report of the Obama presidency, released Friday, shows that the number of Americans not in the labor force has increased by 14,573,000 (18.09 percent) since January 2009, when Obama took office, continuing a long-term trend that began well before Obama was sworn in. “In December, according to the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, a record 95,102,000 Americans were not in the labor force, 47,000 more than in November; and the labor force participation rate was 62.7 percent, a tenth of a point higher than in November. “The participation rate dropped to a 38-year low of 62.4 percent on Obama’s watch, in September 2015. It was only 3-tenths of a point higher than that last month.” This is a far, far cry from the great job Obama says he did for workers while in office. http://patriotupdate.com/obamas-unemployment-numbers-still-staggering-8-years-later/
Continuing the Obama theme. His irrational and destructive tactics were more and more becoming a blight on the national scene. Read this item to see why. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/12/30/7-ways-obama-is-trying-to-sabotage-the-trump-administration/
This exposes the bare truth of what political correctness is all about. Quote: "Parents of college-age children are finally catching on to the cultural Marxist PC scam. Cries of “insensitivity” every time a conservative or libertarian speaker appears anywhere near a college campus; “safe rooms” equipped with play dough, soft music, and videos of frolicking puppies; the endless accusations of “racist/sexist/homophobe” aimed at all non-leftists on campus; and widely-publicized episodes of vulgar, ignorant, x-rated, “students” screaming their heads off at conservative campus speakers have exposed the real purpose of political correctness: censorship of any and all non-Marxist ideas. It’s not about fighting racism, sexism, etc.; it’s about censoring the ideas of freedom.
Today’s college students have been –and are being – trained to be intolerant, totalitarian-minded, communist thugs. All for a mere 50 grand a year at even mediocre institutions of “higher education.” https://www.lewrockwell.com/2016/12/thomas-dilorenzo/real-purpose-pc/
It has been said many times that you can tell the character of a person by the people they associate with. Here is a piece about one of the characters Hillary associates with. Quote: "While Puopolo should be punished like anyone else, the fact that his family has such close ties to the Clintons is a major red flag as well. This news does nothing but inspire those who bought into the Pizzagate story to back up their claims of deep-seeded political corruption leading all the way to the White House. If the Regressive Left wants to change its reputation, they need to start holding the madmen on their side responsible for their actions. Every member of the Democratic Party should be doing everything they possibly can to denounce Puopolo and his motives instead of trying to ignore this story altogether. Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election proves that the United States is prepared for change and that it is time for all of us to join forces and fight for the greater good. A lot of that starts with pointing out political corruption and exposing things for how they really are. These are not partisan issues and should not be treated as such. It’s time for both liberals and conservatives to come together and start acting like civilized human beings again. If we really want to avoid a full-scale societal collapse, this is the only way. It is time for us to get to work and change the direction of our country. Now more than ever, we need more sanity and less absurdity." http://www.libertyheadlines.com/clinton-frienddnc-donor-arrested-threatening-kill-trump/? We should all be thankful that Hillary did not win the election.
