Rep. Lee: ‘America Ready’ For Reparations Because Of Trump’s ‘Attitude’

Published

on

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) has been on a tear concerning slavery reparations this year. She’s fixated on getting money for nothing for those who were never slaves from those who never owned slaves. Yesterday, she went on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” and said Americans were ready for the “descendants of slavery” to receive reparations because of President Donald Trump’s “attitude.” No, they are not.

Let me get this straight… she doesn’t like Trump’s attitude so she figures Americans will be willing to fork over their hard-earned money to the entitled crowd. I don’t think so. If this is the best case Lee can make, she might as well pack it in. But she’s giving it the ole’ racist, history revisionist, Marxist try.

Lee said, “The commission would study reparation proposals. We would not dictate to the commission its design but, clearly, it would be designed for those descendants of slavery. Tragically, 250 years of slavery in the United States for those enslaved Africans did not receive workman’s comp, salary, 401(k), or anything, and literally built the wealth of the United States and Europe. That’s why it was called the trans-Atlantic slave trade, taking enslaved Africans from Africa, frankly, from many parts of Africa. This commission would have the authority appointed by the President, the Majority Leader, the Speaker, and scholars, to really dig deep, something that we have never done before and to design the response.”

She added, “I think America is ready for this because of what we have been going through in the last couple of weeks, because of the attitude of our Commander-in-Chief, and because of what we have seen. The dastardly impacts of white nationalism, white supremacy, and outright racism that has impacted others but certainly has impacted over the decades and centuries African-Americans, the descendants of enslaved Africans.”

What about black nationalism and black supremacy? What about the fact that the first slaves in this country were white, indentured servants? Do facts even matter anymore?

“We’re not a broke country. We’re, in fact, a prosperous country if our funds would be directed not to, if I might say, the top 1%, but really to people who are in need. But I do believe the country has a capacity and now is the time in this horrible atmosphere that we’re in to really move toward reconciliation and understanding,” Lee said.

Lee referenced her recent trip with the Congressional Black Caucus to Ghana and her meeting with its president. She said now is the time to push for reparations. Many of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have either supported the study of reparations or offered a full endorsement. And not just for black Americans, but Native Americans as well. See Elizabeth Warren.

Under the Texas Democrat’s proposal, a commission would be created to determine who would receive the payments and how much. And you can bet that it would be a socialist’s dream-come-true with wealth redistribution targeting the black community as the beneficiaries. Probably in the form of outrageous taxation. That’s stealing in the name of race by way of corrupt bureaucrats that only see color and not reality.

Blasey Ford’s Friend: I Was Threatened With ‘Smear Campaign’ If I Didn’t Back Kavanaugh Story

Published

on

Color me shocked. Actual journalism and the uncovering of facts are coming out over the book written by two New York Times journalists as a hit job against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and you will never believe where it is coming from… CBS. They claim to have the “real bombshell” the Times’ initial report missed. And they are right.

The long-time “close friend” of Christine Blasey Ford, who Ford named as a potential witness to the alleged sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh back in high school, not only says she does not believe Ford’s accusation, but told the FBI that allies of Ford threatened her with a smear campaign to change her story. How vile is that? No wonder they are no longer friends. Because she would not lie for Blasey Ford and the left they threatened to take her out. So typical.

From The Daily Wire:

“Leland Keyser, a long-time “close friend” of Ford, is one of four people Ford named as supposedly being at the alleged party where she said Kavanaugh tried to force himself on her. In its report Monday, CBS Evening News notes that with Keyser’s first public statements on her friend’s allegations, which she gave in an interview with Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, all four of the people Ford claims were at the party now flatly deny that it ever happened.

“As The Daily Wire reported Monday, Keyser also says that Ford’s allies attempted to pressure her to change the story, telling the FBI that those allies even threatened to mount a smear campaign against her if she didn’t — a claim previously revealed by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino in their book, “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court.”

“In a tweet Monday promoting the CBS report, CBS’s Jan Crawford underscored the “real bombshell” highlighted by the network (h/t Ed Morrissey): “We report tonight the real bombshell: Christine Ford’s close HS friend (who Ford says was at the party when Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her) said Ford’s story is not believable and told the FBI Ford’s allies pressured her, threatened her with a smear campaign to say otherwise.”

“As The Daily Wire reported Monday, Hemingway and Severino’s book, which was published in July but largely ignored by the media, unlike the new Times reporters’ book, referenced the alleged attempt to pressure Keyser. In a report for The Federalist Monday, Hemingway summarized the revelations in their book that the Times reporters confirmed and elaborated upon:

The authors also acknowledge what had previously been reported in “Justice on Trial,” about the efforts of mutual friends to get her to change her testimony to be more supportive of Blasey Ford. The reporters say that some of Blasey Ford’s friends “had grown frustrated with Keyser. Her comments about the alleged Kavanaugh incident had been too limited, some of them felt and did not help their friend’s case. Surely, given what a close friend Keyser had been, she could say more to substantiate Ford’s testimony and general veracity, even if she could not corroborate Ford’s more specific memories.”

A group text was formed in which friends such as Cheryl Amitay and Lulu Gonella discussed how to get her to say something more helpful to the cause. An unnamed man on the text suggested that they defame her as an addict. Keyser has been in recovery for some time, as her friends know and as has previously been reported.

Amitay answered, “Leland is a major stumbling block.” While asserting she didn’t want her to make anything up out of whole cloth, she offered ideas for things that could sound supportive of Ford’s story, such as that she’d been in similar situations with Blasey Ford that summer.

“I was told behind the scenes that certain things could be spread about me if I didn’t comply,” Keyser told the reporters, a stunning admission of the pressure to which she was subjected to by Blasey Ford’s allies.

Keyser said that Blasey Ford’s story of the alleged assault “didn’t make any sense.” “It would be impossible for me to be the only girl at a get-together with three guys, have her leave, and then not figure out how she’s getting home,” Keyser recalled. “I just really didn’t have confidence in the story.”

On Monday evening, President Trump said during a rally in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, that The New York Times will “never recover” from its mistake regarding the allegations against Kavanaugh. “They’ve taken the old grey lady and broken her down, destroyed her virtue, and ruined her reputation. She can never recover and will never return to greatness under current management,” the president commented. He’s certainly right about that.

This was simply a vicious political hit job to keep Brett Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court because of his views on abortion and other matters. But it has backfired big-time as lie after lie has been exposed. The left won’t let it go though and dementedly go on about impeachment over these lies. It didn’t work and it further discredited the media and the left.

No wonder Americans no longer trust the media. CBS should be commended for their actual journalism here.

Kamala Harris Wants Mandatory Buyback Of ‘Assault Weapons’ – Have ‘No Place’ In Society

Published

on

...

* By

Democrats just can’t help their tyrant selves. The gun battle is a battle the left will never ever win. No matter how hard they try. The majority of this country is armed.

Good luck trying to pry guns from American hands… It’s not going to happen, Kamala.

Via Daily Caller:

Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris has become the latest presidential candidate to say that she will force Americans to relinquish their assault weapons.

However, she’s prepared to “buy back” the rifles and “give people their value” for the confiscated firearm, Harris told an audience member Monday at “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Harris also said that “we need to do buy backs” when asked what her policy on assault weapons would be.

“Great question I do believe that we need to do buy backs, and I’ll tell you why. First of all, let’s be clear about what assault weapons are they have been designed to kill a lot of human beings quickly. They are weapons of war with no place on the streets of a civil society,” Harris said.

Harris went further, saying that if she could not get the legislation through Congress to ban the further sale of assault weapons, she is “prepared to take executive action” to do so.

“I’ve seen assault weapons kill babies and police officers so, one, I’ll tell you when elected president, if the United States Congress continues to fail to have the courage to do something about this, I’m prepared to take executive action and put in place a ban on the importation of assault weapons into our country.”

Former Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke has also supported mandatory assault weapon buybacks, saying “Hell, yes” he is prepared to take away guns. O’Rourke insisted it wouldn’t be necessary for federal government agents to go door to door to seize guns because he believes Americans will comply with the proposed law.

But that wouldn’t address those weapons that are currently owned by Americans, so Harris thinks “a buyback program is a good idea.” She promised to move quickly on the issue if she becomes the next president.

“And so, I’m telling you, when elected, if Congress fails to act, I’ll give them 100 days to put a bill on my desk for signature. And if they do not it, I will put it in place by executive action a comprehensive background check requirement and a ban on the assault weapons and importation of assault weapons into our country. I’m done.”
