I can clearly understand why Democrats wanted to impeach President Trump, it goes without saying. Nancy Pelosi did not want to impeach Trump and she had a good reason not to. Pelosi understood that it could backfire on Democrats in polls. Well, she was right.
The recent polls show that Trump's approval rating has gone up a bit since Pelosi and house democrats moved to start an impeachment inquiry. Even with all of the accusations directed towards Trump he still has the support of his base and some polls have Trump's approval rating as high as 46 to 49 percent.
The latest polls indicate that Trump's base will not budge and if anything the impeachment inquiry will likely cause the GOP to rally around the President.
I believe the rally cry to protect Trump by Republicans was Pelosi's biggest fear.
Unfortunately for the Democrats, there does not seem to be a Presidential candidate that can separate from the rest of the pack and become the overwhelming frontrunner.
President Trump criticized Iran in a speech at the United Nations general assembly. The war of words began from there as Irani President Hassan fired back with criticism of the U.S calling the U.S the main instigator of terrorism in the middle east.
"Today, America, unfortunately, is the supporter of terrorism in our region, and wherever America has gone, terrorism has expanded in the wake," Rouhani told Fox News's Chris Wallace.
"The country that is present and flying over the air space of and bombarding the soil of the country of Syria without permission of the government is the
United States of America," Rouhani explained to Wallace.
President Rouhani mildly called out the U.S for being too involved with the Middle East way too much. I would take it step it a step further and say the U.S sees the Middle East as a warzone. Whether it's George W. Bush starting two unjust wars or Mr. Warhawk himself "John Bolton" trying to create conflict with Iran, the U.S is the last place in the world that can call another country a terrorist nation.
President Trump admitted to asking the Ukraine government to dig up dirt on Joe Bidens son Hunter. Trump threatened to freeze $400 Million of aide if the Ukraine did not follow through with his request.
Trump's admission has sparked the impeachment debate among Democrats, putting pressure on Speaker Nacy Pelosi to begin impeachment proceedings.
On Tuesday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the House of Representatives will open an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
Although committed what appears to be an impeachable offense, there are still some Democrats think it is a waste of time to even attempt to impeach Trump at this point and time in Trumps Presidency. After all of the investigations, the Muller Report, the Russia probe and now this, some people just want Trump to finish his last year in office so they can vote him out and move on with a new Democratic President.
Some liberals believe impeaching Trump, will only make him look stronger in the eyes of his supporters. I believe there is some truth to that theory. Trump supporters are not fueled by policy but they are fueled by rhetoric and Trump loves to play the victim card. Impeaching him at this time would only embolden his supporters and make the Democrats look like they are just a bunch of elitists that are harassing the President. This may be the best thing that ever happened to Trump.
Get this, for the first time in U.S history, White Nationalism will be seen as a major threat in America by Homeland Security. Amazing right?
"Today, the United States faces an evolving threat environment, and a threat of terrorism and targeted violence within our borders that is more diverse than at any time since the 9/11 attacks," - Secretary Kevin McAleenan
In a report by DHS, the increase in white nationalist rhetoric is highlighted. Most notably, social media has exposed what would be closeted racism.
"Similar to how ISIS inspired and connected with potential radical Islamist terrorists, white supremacist violent extremists connect with like-minded individuals online," the report states.
Recently, I did a podcast speaking about the Trump Administration putting Black extremism at the top of the list as far as terrorism is concerned. Although I don't recall Black Lives Matter members being involved in mass shootings, yet black extremists have been put on the same level as Al Queda according to the FBI.
Iranian leader, Mohammad Javad Zarif is denying Irans involvment in the attacks over the weekend on Saudi oil facilities.
"I make a very serious statement about defending our country. I am making a very serious statement that we don't want to engage in a military confrontation," said Zarif. He added that a military response based on "deception" about the weekend attacks would cause "a lot of casualties."
Trump has stated that he is not willing to sit down and talk with Irani leaders. Oddly enough, Trump was willing however, to talk with Al-Queda. It seems as if Trump was only playing politics back when he said did not want to start a war with Iran.
Former National Security Advisor, John Bolton, a known war-hawk and advocate for war with Iran has been relieved of his duties which caused a lot of people to breathe a sigh of relief. However, even without Bolton, Trump still seems to be heading down the path of war.
Irani President, Hassan Rouhani said Iran was willing to "extend the hand of friendship and brotherhood" to Persian Gulf nations and was "even ready to forgive their past mistakes."
"Those who want to link the region's incidents to the Islamic Republic of Iran are lying like their past lies that have been revealed," the president said. "If they are truthful and really seek security in the region, they must not send weapons, fighter jets, bombs and dangerous arms to the region."
I would never say that Iran is innocent but I will say this, Trump has been willing to meet with Kim Jung Un but for some reason not Iran. Trump has made the claim that Iran is not ready to talk, a claim that I do not believe to be true. Though Trump has not openly called for war, his actions and unwillingness to speak with Irani leaders sends a clear message that a war with Iran is still in play.
Gregory Cheadle is the man Donald Trump called his African-American on the campaign trail to become the 45th President of the United States.
When talking to CNN, Mr. Cheadle said this about the incident:
"I’m more critical of it today than I was back then because today I wonder to what extent he said that for political gain or for attention.”
Cheadle has publicly announced that he is has left the Republican party. Although Cheadle stopped short of calling Trump a racist, he did say Trump has a white supremacy complex.
“President Trump is a rich guy who is mired in white privilege to the extreme,” he added. “Republicans are too sheepish to call him out on anything and they are afraid of losing their positions and losing any power themselves.” Cheadle said
It took Cheadle two years to figure out that Trump is a white supremacist.
What the hell was Cheadle thinking for the past two years? Trump received the support of the KKK and every white nationalist group in America and Europe. What more proof did Mr. Cheadle need?
Gregory Cheadle said he made the decision to leave the Republican party after Trump verbally attacked the four congresswomen and Elijah Cummings.
Cheadle is now set to run for congress as an Independent.
Kamala Harris has been exposed for her record as a prosecutor in the state of California. Her record has been her biggest hurdle since she announced she was running President. The Black community has held her accountable for her record to the point where her message has fallen on deaf ears.
On the debate stage, moderator Linsey Davis addressed the elephant in the room.
Davis called out Harris for opposing the legalization of marijuana and then changing her mind after putting her bid in for President. The big one for me was Linsey Davis called Kamala Harris out for opposing outside investigations of police shootings.
In a time when police departments all across the country have been exposed as being corrupt, outside investigations are the only solutions to even having a chance at exposing the illegal activities within law enforcement. I would argue that at this point someone needs to police the police.
Kamala Harris has locked so many black men for possession of marijuana and their lives have been ruined. Once you have a criminal record, it stays with you. What's even worse is being incarcerated under false pretense because of a crooked police officer. Outside investigations into police shootings is a no brainer. I don't know what Harris was thinking at the time when she opposed it but it has come back to haunt her.
New England Patriots wide receiver, Antonio Brown has been the topic of discussion for many weeks now, mostly for his on the field antics and his controversial departure from the Pittsburgh Steelers which sent him to the Oakland Raiders. Without even playing a down for the Raiders, Brown was released and picked up by the Patriots. Before even playing a down for the Patriots, a new story drops that has taken the sports media by storm.
Antonio Brown's former trainer "Britney Taylor" has accused her of raping her 3 times. She claims it happened back in 2017. Okay, this is where the story gets a little weird, Brittney Taylor claims Brown raped her but yet she continued to be his personal trainer. Not only that but she waited for 2 years to even report that she was raped.
You can read the full complaint by clicking the link below.
This is one of the weirdest stories I've heard in my life. One of the complaints Taylor made against Brown was he allegedly kissed her and then stood behind her and masturbated on her.
To be clear, I'm not siding with Antonio Brown, I'm confused about the timing of the reveal. It seems so odd that Ms. Taylor would be revealing this now after so much time has elapsed. It may be true that Ms. Taylor was too ashamed to publicly make these claims and maybe she has found the courage to talk about the alleged assault.
Here is the kicker, from what I understand so far, Ms. Taylor is only seeking financial compensation for the alleged assaults. There is no indication that Taylor wants Brown to face any jail time.
Things that make you go hmmm?
I have not agreed with much of anything Trump has done so far as President but this one thing he got right, on Tuesday, September 10, 2019, President Trump fired the warhawk himself, John Bolton.
Bolton was appointed National Security Adviser back in 2017 but like most of Trumps hires he was fired after just 2 years. Actually, nobody knows if Bolton was fired or if just resigned. Either way, it needed to happen.
There is speculation that Bolton leaked information about internal affairs. The Trump administration has a no snitching policy and has had one from the beginning. Trump has always been weary of insiders spilling the goods on him.
Senator Lindsey Graham chimed in on the release of John Bolton:
“I like John Bolton. I thought he did a good job, I shared his worldview, however, I think the trust was lost—there’s a view that the leaking allegation is pretty sensitive to the president.”
It was a few months ago when every week there was a new story about Iran. There seemed that an eventual war with Iran was evident. Bolton has been beating the war drum for years openly calling for war with Iran as if it was just something to do. When Trump hired Bolton as National Security Adviser back in 2017, it worried a lot of people who feared it would turn into Iraqi freedom part 2.
Rumor has it, Trump and Bolton were not seeing eye to eye when it came to Iran. Trump openly stated he did not want to start a war with Iran and I'm sure Bolton had to have been greatly disappointed.
Of course, we know Bolton was only looking to profit from another war much like Bush and Chaney did 2002.
According to the Daily Beast, John Bolton was not happy about Trump inviting leaders of the Taliban to Camp David for a formal meeting. The invitation to the Taliban may just have been the final straw.
Finally, my last entry may be a big problem for Trump. According to multiple sources, John Bolton is preparing to write a book about his time as a NSA and it may be released in the final weeks of the 2020 election.
Jim Carey is on the hitlist for right-wing websites. Carey put a target on his back when he sent a tweet scolding Mitch McConnell.
“10,000 gun deaths in 2019 and the year is far from over. What Osama bin Laden did to us was terrible but he doesn’t hold a candle to Mitch McConnell.” - Jim Carey
With so many people in Kentucky mad at Mitch for his mishandling of the coal miners black lung fund, you would think Mitch would not have as support as he does. However, after Jim Carey sent out that blistering tweet, a right-wing news site "Front Page Mag" ripped into Jim Carey and deemed him untrustworthy and pretty much-rejected the idea of Carey having an opinion. Of course, the site made it a left-wing issue.
The Front Page Mag editor went on an epic rant defending Moscow Mitch's record, attempting to debunk the history of gun violence in America and blamed liberal media for bringing awareness to the violent nature of white supremacist groups.
What gets me is right-wing blogs are always calling liberals snowflakes and cry about media censorship. Often these bloggers are the most disrespectful writers who constantly talk about locking up Hillary Clinton and hanging Obama.
Yet when it comes to Moscow Mitch, they want lefties to leave him alone. Right-wingers are the real snowflakes. I am not a fan of liberals but conservatives are the bullies that beat people up but when someone punches them in the face they run and cry to their mommy.
So what if Jim Carey compared Mitch McConnell to Osama Bin Laden, it's no different from what conservatives have said about Obama and every other so-called liberal.
Reggie Bush may not be able to be involved with anything NFL related ever again! Okay, I’m exaggerating a bit but Reggie Bush has tweeted out that if Antonio Brown signs with the Patriots then the whole NFL is rigged.
I was shocked when I read the tweet. This is not something I expected from a guy like Bush who is liked and has made several appearances on sports shows such as FS1′s “Undisputed” and ESPN’s “First Take” so for Bush to make such a statement out in the open on twitter was quite the surprise.
I agree with Bush and have said for years now that the NFL as well the NBA is definitely rigged to a degree. I find it funny that Antonio Brown ends up with the Patriots of all teams. It just seems as if there is always some funny business going on with the NFL. We all remember the referee that celebrated with the Patriots when the won the AFC championship back 2018 and many fans have noticed that there is always some strange things going on with the league and the Patriots that would make you wonder about the relationship with the commissioner and the Patriots organization.
I’m not saying Antonio Brown does not have the right to go to the Patriots and play for them but I’m suspicious of why he really left the Steelers and the Raiders. Everything points to a conspiracy. How did he manage to get released from the Raiders and signed to the Patriots just as the season started?
As we all remember, the infamous building 7 was never struck by a plane but yet the building fell to the ground, demolition style. Building 7 has been a topic of discussion for many conspiracy theorists and 9/11 skeptics and rightfully so. There is even rumored to have been secret information that needed to be destroyed inside of building 7. One conspiracy site makes the claim that building 7 was the command center for the 9/11 operation. http://www.911hardfacts.com/report_07.htm
A new study conducted by 9/11 Truth researchers believe they have proof that World Trade Center building 7 did not collapse because of an uncontrollable fire.
Dr. Leroy Hulsey, a civil engineering professor at UAF, led the 4-year study which according to his report disagrees with the NIST report which claimed debris from the north tower caused the fires to ignite in WTC 7.
"The primary and backup water supply to the sprinkler systems for the lower floors relied on the city's water supply, whose lines were damaged by the collapse of WTC 1 and WTC 2," a fact-sheet on the NIST investigation said. "These uncontrolled lower-floor fires eventually spread to the northeast part of WTC 7, where the building's collapse began."
Dr. Leroy Husley also released a statement:
"We virtually simulated the building and we looked at that analysis and we also virtually simulated what they did, we couldn't get it to do what they did," Hulsey said.
Interestingly, the new report by the UAF has made little to no headlines and has been buried only to be revealed b certain conspiracy websites. I find this to be odd because for weeks the media has replayed the speech that former Daily Show host John Stewart made, slamming Congress for not acting fast enough to protect the funding of 9/11 victims.
I called it! Biden may have just confirmed my sneaky suspicion. I knew when Kamala Harris called him out for being on the wrong side of the bussing issue back in the 70s, Biden would most likely pick a minority for his VP to win over whatever Black voters he may have lost.
This is just a personal opinion of mine but I believe Biden will pick Corey Booker as his VP. It just makes sense when you think about it. Booker is popular but not so popular that he would overshadow Biden.
Some people think he may pick Kamala Harris but I don't see them getting along and plus to reiterate my point I made earlier, Kamala would overshadow him. Plus to Kamala Harris has too much baggage. She is not popular in the Black community due to her horrible record as AG in California.
According to The Washington Post, Biden spoke about who he would pick for VP.
“Whomever I pick, preferably it will be someone who was of color and/or a different gender, but I’m not making that commitment until I know that the person I’m dealing with I can completely and thoroughly trust as authentic and on the same page [as me].” Biden said.
During the second Democratic Presidential debates, Biden mistakenly called Booker "Mr.President" and they chuckled at the slip-up. I don't think it was a mistake. I believe Biden knew exactly what he was doing and was sowing the seed right there in front of the entire country.
Jeffrey Epstein's death has sparked much controversy and speculation. The biggest rumor is the higher-ups are trying their best to hide the Epsteins connection to some very important people. Although Epstein is dead the case is still very much alive.
According to multiple sources, the FBI is still investigating Jeffrey Epstein and his associates. Here's where things get a little strange, one of the key witnessess in the Jeffrey Epstein case has disappeared.
Not only has this key witness disappeared but this witness has vanished without a trace. It's hard to believe this is even possible, after all, the FBI is involved.
You would think a key witness in a high profile case would not only be protected but certainly watched by the FBI closely.
Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide and somehow managed to do it in prison after being taken off of suicide watch. It sounds to me like a major cover-up is going on here. There are women that are set to testify and reveal some damaging information about some of Epstein's associates. Prince Andrew has already been outed as one of the men tied to Epstein that forced a then underage teen to perform sexual acts on him.
After learning that the key witness, in this case, has disappeared without a trace, I strongly feel these women that are set to testify against Epstein and his associates are now in danger.
DEA Agent Chad Scott was found guilty of corruption by a jury. Scott was the same DEA Agent that targeted and tried to destroy J Prince and Rap A lot Records.
Scott has allegedly taking money from drug dealers as well as destroy evidence.
According to NOLA.COM two former drug traffickers stated that Scott tried to get them to lie under oath. One of the former drug dealers said Scott ordered him to purchase a pick up truck and hand it over to Scott as forfeiture.
CKICK THE LINK BELOW FOR THE STORY.
This story is unbelievable but true. Two NYPD officers took turns having sex with a teenage girl back in 2017. The girl goes by the alias, "Anna Chambers" accused the officers of taking turns having sex with while she was handcuffed in the back of a police car.
Officers Eddie Martins and Richard Hall could have gone to jail for 25 years but as we all know, cops are almost nearly never arrested for anything ever!
According to "The Sun" - the officers took a plea deal in order to avoid serving time.
After Anna Chambers heard about the ruling, she went on twitter and let the world how she felt about the ruling.
“F*** the justice system lmfaooo s***s a joke.”
This is just another example of the broken justice system and shows the corrupt the police departments are.
There is no way in hell the same people that are supposed to uphold the law and lock up people for breaking the law should be able to continuously break those same laws and not be punished for it.
Prosecutor Eric Gonzalez:
“These defendants engaged in a shocking abuse of power, which they finally acknowledge."
Former Secretary of Defense James Mattis sends a warning to America in an essay that will be followed up by a book he be publishing in the near future.
Mattis warns of the United States occupying an "increasingly lonely position" that "puts us at increasing risk in the world."
As Trump continues to ruin the reputation of America across the world, this warning is just common sense to anyone with a brain but Trump supporters for some reason believe Trump's tactics are a sign of strength. This has further emboldened Trump to act more like a dictator than as the President of the United States.
Mattis suffered the same fate as everyone who served under Trump's administration. He spoke his mind and he was fired for it.
"Using every skill I had learned during my decades as a Marine, I did as well as I could for as long as I could," Mattis writes of his time in the Trump administration. "When my concrete solutions and strategic advice, especially keeping faith with our allies, no longer resonated, it was time to resign, despite the limitless joy I felt serving alongside our troops in defense of our Constitution," Mattis wrote.
Mattis would also point out the division within America itself pointing out the tribalism that continues to be a dangerous trend among citizens.
Although Trump is not to blame for everything, he has definitely has been adding fuel to the fire, invoking a us versus them attitude which is in complete
contrast to the Presidents that proceeded him.
I am not a person that has jumped on the recession is coming bandwagon, however, I can see why some would believe a recession is on its way. Trump still a year left to bankrupt America which is plenty of time to get the recession ball rolling.
One thing I have said since day one is Trump will completely destroy whatever credibility the United States has left with its allies as well as its rivals. How many times has Trump made a threat and backed away from it later? How many deals have and policies has Trump tried to destroy that were in place under the Obama administration? Again there are too many examples to count. Fake news and broken promises have become the everyday practice under the Trump administration. It has come to a point were world leaders don't even take Trump seriously and Trump represents America.
This essay by James Mattis is just confirmation by the former Secretary of Defense.
Rashon Kahn has the internet buzzing after dropping a bomb on everybody. He made the bold claim that Paul Mooney had sex with Richard Pryor's son Richard Pryor Jr. He would go on to state that not only did this happen but Richard Pryor Sr knew about it and was willing to pay someone $1Million to kill Mooney.
TMZ managed to get a response from Richard Pryor Jr. When addressing the issue he said:
“Whatever happened in my life, it happened when I was young. Way before the ’80s.”
Paul Mooney has denied Kahn's claim.
People associated with Mooney said this:
“The timeline of events simply doesn’t add up, especially since Richard Sr. and Paul were hanging out as late as 1999.”
At this point it hard to know who is telling the truth. Mooney actually brought up a good point about the timeline being out of order. If Richard Pryor Sr actually wanted to kill Paul Mooney back when this alleged incident took place, it would be hard to ses how Pryor Sr would have still kept Mooney around as an associate/friend. Nobody in their right mind would be caught hanging out with a man that molested their child.
The question I'm asking is this,is Rashon Kauhn making this story up? Is he just trying to sell his book that is to be published soon?
It appears that something happened the question is when did it happen? Mooney is being accused of child molestation so the timeline of the events in question is more important than the gossip.
We may never know the truth.
I got a nice little conspiracy theory for yah and it's not about Qanon this time but I'm sure Qanon would love it. There is theory floating around that Steve Kobs faked his death. Yep, that Steve Jobs, the Apple guy.
Someone took a picture of a man in Egypt and posted it online making the claim that the man in the photo is actually Steve Jobs.
I saw the photo and I actually have to admit the man sort of looks like Steve Jobs. So the theory is Jobs faked his death and is hiding out in Egypt.
In an article posted in the Irish Post, it says conspiracy theorists have already pointed out the man slipped off his shoes when he sat down, which is something that Jobs use to do all of the time.
The photo was originally posted on Redditt and has received a lot of attention. People these days love good conspiracy. Who knows, maybe its true, maybe Steve Jobs faked his death to live a nice quiet life but then you would have ask why and whats the point?
Jean Cramer, a candidate for city council in Maryville Michigan, shocked everyone in the political forum by actually suggesting that they keep the city as White as possible.
“Keep Marysville a white community as much as possible,” said Cramer, one of five candidates vying for three open council seats in November.
As much as the politicians may act as if they are shocked by Jean Cramer's comments but we all know gentrification is happening in every major city in America. Although Marysville is not a major city and is a majority-white town, it is the way Cramer wants to keep it.
It's very rare that you see a politician actually be honest and tell the whole world how they feel about Black people.
This is one of those moments.
[Keep city as white 'as much as possible,' council candidate says, stunning forum in Michigan]
The Trump administration has added another reason to vote Trump out of office in 2020. The administration's proposal to change the food stamp program will likely cut off millions of poor people from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
Trump's food stamp proposal may become a scary reality to the people who need it the most. The proposal potentially takes away SNAP from 3.1 million families that depend on it.
Ironically, many of Trumps supporters will be hurt by the proposal as well. It has been reported that the majority of Americans that are receiving government assistance such as food stamps are poor White Americans. Newsweek posted an article back in January of 2018 stating the following, "whites are the biggest beneficiaries when it comes to government safety-net programs like the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, commonly referred to as welfare."
The full article can be seen in the link
It seems as if Trump is making an effort to cut welfare and food stamps, as he continues to attack poor people while giving tax cuts to the wealthy. However, Trump's proposal to change food stamp qualifications has been met with pushback.
According to USA Today, 70 mayors from across the country spoke out against the proposal in a letter sent to the Department Of Agriculture on Wednesday.
"During times of economic downturn, every additional $5 dollars in SNAP benefits generates up to $9 dollars of economic activity, and every $1 billion increase in SNAP benefits results in 8,900 full-time equivalent jobs," the letter said.
The USDA responded by stating that the cuts could help save money. Baltimore Mayor Jack Young was among the 70 Mayors that rejected the new proposal and with good reason. The city of Baltimore could be devastated by the cuts. Approximately, 15,000 people in Baltimore City depend on SNAP.
These proposed cuts could cause children to in low-income communities to go hungry at school.
The USDA is not backing down from their stance claiming the proposal could save billions in taxpayer funds.
Colin Kaepernick replied to Jay-Z's claims that we are past kneeling by saying, "We ain't past nothing."
I said in my post addressing this subject some time ago that the NFL thinks that Jay-Z is still the voice of the Black community and whatever he does, Black people will follow suit. This is one of those times when they will find out they were wrong. Jay-Z has no pull other than the fact that he has a lot of money.
Of course, not every Black person in America got behind Kaepernick when he was kneeling in protest for the unarmed Black men in America that had been shot and killed by police officers without consequence.
What Jay-Z does not realize is that this cause is greater than his fame. Black people are not just ready to move on and not only that but as we see Eric Garner did not get justice and just goes to show that the powers that be are just ignoring the Black community as a whole. I'm not saying that kneeling will make them treat Black people fairly but it keeps the conversation going, that's the part that Jay-Z is missing. We don't want them thinking that we have just moved on like we usually do. Not this time.
With all the talk about an impending recession, no one wants to hear about a trade war with China, no one except the President of the United States. Trump made it clear that the trade wars will not end anytime soon. Despite the recession talks and damn near every economic forecaster saying there are obvious warning signs of a recession Trump has doubled down on his trade war with China, bragging that China has had it's worse year in financially in 24 years.
Trump would tell reporters that China has been ripping America off for far foo long and somebody had to take them on. Trump spoke about himself in a heroic manner as if he was David taking on Goliath. The important part of all of this is Trump feels a 2-month recession is something he willing to allow for the greater good which is bringing down China.
A recession is very tricky and falling into one can be dangerous for many reasons.
To assume that the recession will only last for 2-months gives us all a little bit of a peek inside of the mind of Trump.
