The townhouse and former school building in Manhattan which is where the late Jeffrey Epstein allegedly sexually abused underage girls is scheduled to sell for approximately $50 million, according to a report that came out on Wednesday.
The Upper East Side mansion is under contract and would be among the most pricey homes to sell in New York over the past year if the current deal closes, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The report didn’t identify the would-be buyer. Would you want your name plastered all over media if you were buying such an infamous dwelling? A source familiar with the deal told The New York Post that the buyer works in finance and is not from the United States.
The 28,000-square-foot neoclassical townhouse was put on the market as well as Epstein’s Florida mansion in July.
The asking price was originally $88 million when it first went on the market, but the executors of the former owner’s estate lowered the price to $65 million last month. Can you imagine the Manhattan property taxes? I can’t even imagine anyone putting in a serious offer for the property knowing the history.
Some New York real estate brokers said that the clients they contacted over the sale were unnerved just at the thought of buying the Epstein house. Think about if you received such a call. The first thing I’d think is, “What made you think I would want to buy it?”
“I don’t know who would want it,” one agent said. “I had clients hang up on me, angry that I even suggested it.” Well, then there is still hope for the world.
The Manhattan townhouse was the most valuable piece of real estate owned by the convicted sex abuser who also had homes in New Mexico, Paris, France, and the infamous private island in the US Virgin Islands commonly referred to as Pedophile Island.
Some real estate folks said that the price drop could have been because of coronavirus and nothing to do with Epstein’s sicko behavior. Coronavirus problems in New York are because of the gross behavior of Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio, both of whom have been a disaster.
“The deal is great for New York. It’s a low number but that could be because of COVID and not Epstein,” one broker told The New York Post. “The buyer is a savvy person who got a good deal and will resell.”
One broker tried to remove the booger from the bouquet of roses.
“It’s an exceptional property,” the broker said. “If someone gets a great deal, they could get it blessed by a rabbi and a priest.”
The real estate broker added, “People have a way of dealing with things when they have a good buy… they will go for it, whatever it is, just knowing they can turn around and resell it for a bigger number.”
Epstein, who prison officials say killed himself back in August of 2019 while in custody on federal sex trafficking charges, something practically no one in the world believes, had been accused of sexually assaulting and abusing young girls and women for a long time.
The Manhattan property was built in 1930 for Herbert Staus, the Macy’s heir, and was previously owned by Leslie Wexner a former Victoria’s Secret exec and close associate of Jeffrey Epstein.
In 1962 the building became the Birch Wathen School and they moved out in 1989 after Wexner bought the property for a reported $13.2 million.
It has never been explained why, but Wexner gifted the house to Epstein, transferring title for the sum total of $0 around 1996. The New York Times reported that the property was officially transferred in 2011 from a trust that was controlled by Wexner and Epstein to a Virgin Islands-based entity controlled by Epstein. Rumors went around that Epstein paid $20 million for the property in 1998.
Federal agents raided the place not long after Epstein was arrested in July 2019 and revealed that they found hundreds of pictures of nude underage girls hidden in a safe.
The money from the sale of the townhouse is supposed to go to Epstein’s estate that has a compensation fund to be used to settle claims from his alleged sexual abuse victims. The Attorney General of the Virgin Islands just last month asked a judge to freeze the assets of the estate and when that happens the executors of the estate have said that they will not be able to make payments to the sicko’s victims.
Radical Woke Supremacist progressive House Democrats unsuccessfully pushed an amendment lowering the federal voting age to 16 as part of the HR 1 voting rights package on Wednesday.
According to C-SPAN, the amendment failed by a vote of 125-302, thnaks God, after a majority of Democrats voted for it at 125-93.
“A sixteen-year-old in 2021 possesses a wisdom and a maturity that comes from 2021 challenges, 2021 hardships, and 2021 threats,” Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), a member of the progressive “Squad,” who was behind the amendment, said in a statement on Monday. “Now is the time for us to demonstrate the courage that matches the challenges of the modern-day sixteen- and seventeen-year-old.”
Listen to this lunatic go on about how wonderful her amendment is. Completely out of touch.
Is it just me or have the Democrats so far proposed nothing but power grab moves for their party? They have not proposed a single bill that will make one American life better.
Along with Pressley, Representative Grace Meng (D-NY), and Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-Il), reintroduced the amendment on Monday. All three would be primaried and thrown out of office if Democrat voters cared about the future of our country.
Back in February, Pressley said that she was “shocked” that lowering the legal voting age to 16 was such a “polarizing” subject. That’s a clear signal that the Congresswoman from Massachusetts is out of touch with the American people. She made the comment during a Facebook Live discussion with Representative Barbara Lee (D-CA), and author Ibram X. Kendi.
“Dr. Kendi, I was shocked by how polarizing an issue this was, and listen when I would tell people John Lewis is an original co-sponsor of this, you know, our young people deserve to have a stakeholder in our democracy,” Pressley said responding to Kendi, who claimed that lowering the voting age is an example of an anti-racist policy. How? How is lowering the voting age from 18 to 16 an anti-racist policy? What does race have to do with lowering the voting age? How could these Woke Supremacists find a racial issue in that? If they really want to set an anti-racist policy why not lower the voting age to 7? That will really send a message. #SMH
It’s not a new thing either. This amendment to lower the voting age was originally added to HR 1 back in March 2019. The amendment failed then too receiving only 126 votes. You would think these progressives would learn by now that the American people do not want the voting age lowered. But progressives never operate that way. They truly are Woke Supremacists in that they believe that their ideas will fix everything just so long as the smartest people in the world are implementing them. They ignore the fact that they are elected to “represent” the people who elect them to office, that’s why they’re called Representative so and so in the House. But progressive Democrats do not represent anyone but their own self, their own party, for their own power.
“Beginning at the age of 16, young people are contributing to both the labor force and their local economies by paying income taxes, and yet they are deprived of the opportunity to exercise their right to vote,” Pressley said on the House floor in 2019. Then raise the age of being able to work.
“In this country, we affirm that when a person walks into the voting booth and pulls that lever, there is no meritocracy or hierarchy. The booth is the equalizer.” Unless they use voting machines to alter the votes and rig an election. Now we know that their vote may not count the way the voters wanted them to count.
Democrats will do anything to rig an election. HR 1 is exactly that, with provisions that will make the federal government completely take over election laws and rules in states, even though the Constitution gives sole authority for election laws to state legislatures. Don’t take my word for it. Read it yourself here.
After being hit with a third accusation of sexual harassment in under two weeks, Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) has hired a high-powered criminal defense lawyer who once defended sexual predator Harvey Weinstein and alleged pervert Woody Allen against allegations of sexual assault, which is a sure sign that Cuomo believes that his female accusers have him by the short hairs wherever they may be.
A former federal prosecutor, Elkan Abramowitz, who has ties to Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, who refused to prosecute Weinstein and it was discovered that Weinstein’s legal team funded Vance’s campaign, will serve as legal counsel to the embattled governor and his top aides, according to The Wall Street Journal who reported on it on Monday.
Letitia James, the radical Soros-funded New York Attorney General (AG) is investigating the Cuomo administration, though she hasn’t yet appointed anyone to look into the accusations made by three women who say that Cuomo sexually harassed them, which includes inappropriate kissing and touching without consent and making lewd comments like asking a 25-year-old aide is she had ever had sex with older men and the 63-year-old governor letting her know that “he’s fine with anyone above the age of 22”
“To be clear I never inappropriately touched anybody and I never propositioned anybody and I never intended to make anyone feel uncomfortable, but these are allegations that New Yorkers deserve answers to,” Cuomo said in a statement giving a non-apology apology for the things the women have accused him of doing. He tried to blow it off as “being playful and making jokes that I think are funny.”
So what was the punchline of that joke where he kissed Lindsey Boylan on the lips without consent? Can you imagine? “Two guys walk into a bar and MWUAH! In your face!”
Cuomo asked New Yorkers to hold off judgment until the findings come from an independent investigation – note: there are no independent investigations when Democrats are involved, only rigged circus acts – when he at long last referred the matter to James’ office on Sunday, but that was only after he caught a lot of backlash for first picking former US District Judge Barbara Jones, a former law partner with Steve Cohen, one of Cuomo’s closest advisors. He tried to rig the investigation.
AG James is already looking into the Cuomo administration’s mishandling and possible criminal activities with regard to the nursing home scandal where top Cuomo aide told state Democrats on a conference call that the administration hid the nursing home COVID death numbers because they were afraid that the Trump administration’s Department of Justice would find out the real number of deaths that they lied about after forcing coronavirus patients into nursing homes that killed over 10 thousand seniors. Apparently, the Cuomo administration undercut the death count by over 40 percent.
This isn’t the first time Abramowitz had to get Cuomo out of a mess as he represented the horny old man once for a federal investigation over the governor’s stupid decision to dismantle an anti-corruption panel he created in 2013.
Abramowitz donated $2,100 to DA Vance’s campaign after the DA dropped charges against his client, the infamous sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, even though police provided a recording of the former Hollywood mogul apologizing to his alleged victim and on tape it has him apologizing to her and he promised he wouldn’t do it again.
The attorney also once represented actor Woody Allen on sexual abuse charges that involved his daughter, Dylan Farrow. Abramowitz accused Dylan’s mother, actress Mia Farrow, of planting the idea that Woody molested his own daughter. “The idea that Dylan was molested was implanted by her mother, and that memory is never going to go away,” he said in 2014.
The sexual harassment problems New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is now facing aren’t the first he’s ever faced. About twenty years prior to being accused of sexual harassment against women while he served as governor of New York, a young Andrew Cuomo was the recipient of a sexual harassment complaint by a government official who accused Cuomo of hounding her with “a series of attacks and dirty tricks.” That was when he served as the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretary for the Bill Clinton administration.
In 2000, Susan Gaffney file a complaint against Cuomo when she served as HUD’s Inspector General.
In her complaint, Gaffney, and other top HUD officials, alerted the Office of Departmental Equal Employment Opportunity that she was sexually harassed and discriminated against because of her stance against fraud at HUD, accusing Cuomo of verbally abusing her during weekend phone calls.
The complaint came after years of clashing with Cuomo as she described during her 1998 appearance before the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs. When she testified, Gaffney detailed being targeted with accusations and whisper campaigns and even made to appear to be a racist who discriminated against minorities.
Why should we look at Cuomo’s past when he served as HUD secretary? Because it shows a pattern of behavior by the governor who is now implicated in two, possibly three high-profile cases where he is being accused of sexually harassing women subordinates while serving as governor of New York. He is also being investigated by the Department of Justice (DOJ) for how he bungled the nursing home fiasco when he forced COVID-positive patients into nursing homes where he may be responsible for over ten thousand deaths.
Accusers and others who have known about Cuomo’s personality for a long time are now saying things like he was a “predatory” man and a “colossal a**hole.” Politicians and other officials are saying things like, “he’s always been that way.” Well, then where the heck were they all this time? How come none of them said anything publicly, in some cases for years?
Gaffney, during her 1998 testimony, testified that Cuomo’s “hostility” emanated from an audit that her office did on a program that fell under the former HUD secretary’s authority. It appears that Cuomo has always been a hothead. Gaffney said that Cuomo “heatedly disputed the authority of the OIG to raise certain questions, and strongly objected to what he saw as a lack of accountability on my part.” An inspector general has the right to ask any questions that fall under the jurisdiction of the department they are overseeing. She said her OIG continued to operate as normal after Cuomo took the job, but he continually clashed with them.
“Not surprisingly, given the depth and pervasiveness of management problems at HUD, we have expressed reservations about the Secretary’s ability to transform HUD in the radical manner and under the abbreviated timetable he has adopted,” Gaffney said during her testimony. “The Secretary has characterized this as biased reporting and naysaying. His impatience with the independence of the OIG has led to a truly extraordinary series of events.” In short, Cuomo’s a jerk.
Gaffney explained that the problems with Cuomo started when he announced that his office had received an anonymous letter claiming that Gaffney targeted African Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans, right out of the Democrat handbook, and said that the OIG was “riddled with abuse.”
Since time immemorial, whenever Democrats found themselves boxed into a corner one surefire way to get out of it is to accuse your opponent of being a racist.
Gaffney told the Senate that of course, that and other garbage was leaked to the Washington Post and that she approached Cuomo to question by members of his staff had leaked that information to the media.
“He explained to me that his key aides saw me as the ’embodiment of evil,’ and there was nothing he could do about that,” Gaffney testified.
Andrew Cuomo is an insecure man-child who thinks acting like a bully will make other people back down on you. That works in many cases because most people in civil society don’t want any trouble or to upset the applecart as it were, but in my experience when you push back on a bully like this they cave in many cases because their toughness was all just a bluff. Democrats in power last longer than most folks, because of the political implications involved and power moves are important to those kinds of people.
So what we’re seeing today is just an extension of Andrew Cuomo’s boorish behavior from decades ago. A tiger cannot change its stripes and a jerk never grows up. Unfortunately for the governor, it appears that the Democratic Party no longer finds him useful and I think he’s finding that out now.
It boggles the mind why an American president would create an amnesty program when the problems of illegal immigration were fixed by the last administration. Why would an American president do this to the country? Obtaining votes is the only explanation that makes any sense. When you think about the harm that comes to American citizens and many of the migrants who travel here because they have been told by Woke Democrats that we owe them a living, it should be criminal. How do you decide to create a border crisis in the first month of your administration? We are unquestionably in the middle of a crisis right now and it’s all been unnecessarily self-inflicted by the Biden administration.
After four years of Herculean efforts, the Trump administration handed over an immigration system to the new administration where illegal migrants were safely returned back to their countries of origin thanks to agreements made with Central American governments, the surge of children migrants and families traveling thousands of miles, many of them raped and assaulted along the way, had effectively stopped. Catch and Release was ended, because it was a stupid policy where we released illegal border crossers into the American population only to have zero percent ever show up for their hearings and zero percent chance that the Obama administration would give a damn about finding them and deporting them. In four weeks’ time, the Biden administration ended all of that. Now, tens of thousands of people are getting hurt every single day with thousands coming across our border, and the federal government is not equipped to test them for COVID-19. American citizens are being locked down in Democrat-controlled states, Biden asks for a mask mandate, yet they are not testing thousands of foreign migrants for COVID. Wonderful! Supporting illegal immigration is cruel and evil because it kills people.
A new analysis shows President Joe Biden’s amnesty program will bring in enough foreigners that the numbers will compare to the size of California’s population.
Last month, House and Senate Democrats introduced the HR 1177 & S. 348, the Biden plan, that will give amnesty to the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States -I believe the number is closer to 30 million – while at the same time they will double the annual legal immigration numbers to the country, flooding the labor market with more foreign competition for the nation’s more than 17 million jobless Americans, many of them jobless thanks to other disastrous decisions made by the Biden administration since January 20.
NumbersUSA, an organization that fights for American workers to decrease the foreign competition in our labor market, did an analysis that finds that by 2031, Biden’s amnesty program will have brought in a foreign-born population almost the size of California.
According to the analysis, by 2031, almost 12 million illegal aliens will have been processed through the amnesty policies that would let them remain in the United States indefinitely and then reward them with American citizenship. Did anyone really vote for this?
Did you vote to have the current number of 1.2 million green card holders doubled to more than 2.4 million? This horrible legislation will bring in more than 37 million foreigners into the US in just ten years. Contrary to what Biden thinks, no society can bring in that many people in that timespan and not have serious negative effects on society.
It’s a vicious cycle. The huge wave of immigration will have consequences on American citizens, but those who Biden is appeasing with his amnesty plans don’t care. The wave of immigration brought in by the Biden plan will be a windfall for corporations who want cheap labor and more consumers. The differences between the Trump administration that this group of anti-American schemers cannot be more clear. Whereas the Trump administration implemented an America First agenda where American working families were employed and were thriving, the Biden administration, by their own policies, has made America last.
“Always eyes watching you and the voice enveloping you. Asleep or awake, indoors or out of doors, in the bath or bed—no escape. Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimeters in your skull.” George Orwell, 1984
Microsoft, the new Ingsoc, has joined with a number of media and tech firms to create a system that can trace your content around the internet, a concept that I predict will kill online privacy and individual anonymity and will eventually fundamentally transform the web.
Why would a tech company do this? I am a programmer and earlier in my career, I once dealt with a situation where a virus, not unlike the Melissa virus that was unleashed back in 1999, was written using Microsoft’s VBA programming language which stands for Visual Basic for Applications. It’s built into Microsoft’s Office products. Inside Office products is a fully functional version of Visual Basic for VBA that will allow you to write VBA programming code that will do things inside the documents you’re working on? Don’t believe me? Open up a Word document and then simultaneously hit the ALT/F11 keys and watch what happens. The Visual Basic for Applications IDE opens up. You may have already written VBA code without even knowing it. One of the functions of VBA inside the Office suite is when you create a macro to record tasks to be used later on, the macro creates programming code that runs your macros. If you create macros to automate something you can then go into VBA, look up the macro name you gave it, and voila, there’s programming code that makes up the macro you created. Pretty cool, eh? But I digress.
Now that you know what Microsoft has been capable of doing for decades, it’s time to look at what they have done now. Microsoft, along with the tech and media companies who signed up, has constructed a plan that could turn out to be the tech tyrant’s boldest, most shameless power grab ever.
Microsoft gave a press release that revealed a partnership with several other companies to form what they call the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA). Their mission is to develop a system where all content that enters the internet can be traced back to the original author.
This is like buying a car and the manufacturing company records everywhere you drive so that your travel can be traced and possibly used against you. It’s like the government putting a tracker on your home’s thermostat so that they can keep track of your carbon footprint and do whatever they want with that data including punishing the homeowner. Believe it or not, the Democrats proposed such a thing years ago and received so much backlash that they had to scrap it, but now that Democrats no longer have to worry about winning elections they may bring it back up again.
As stated in the press release, it talks about developing specifications for “common asset types and formats,” which are objects users online could post, things like images, videos, documents, and other things. So now if you create and post a meme that the Woke Supremacy doesn’t like they can trace it back to you and punish you accordingly. And it more-than-likely won’t just be able to trace the author but anyone who shares it later.
Think about all the products you use on a computer, and then think about all the companies that make those products that have gone Woke over the last few years. And it’s not just Microsoft. Adobe that makes Photoshop, Jasc Software creates Paintshop Pro, Apple has iMovie, and there’s a whole host of software and services that allow users to be creative that may now compromise your privacy and security.
Of course, the tech tyrants will say that they are doing this to protect people from misinformation and those crazy white supremacists who are lurking around every corner of the internet.
According to Microsoft, this coalition was born to, you guessed it, stop the spread of “disinformation,” which in reality means any information that does not fit the forever changing narratives of the leftist Woke Supremacy. Pretty soon we’re going to see Soviet-style dissident reading groups form in neighborhoods just so people can share information again, just don’t bring a Kindle.
The official line from Microsoft is they want “to address the prevalence of disinformation, misinformation and online content fraud through developing technical standards for certifying the source and history or provenance of media content.”
The first place thing can look at CNN or even Microsoft’s MSNBC, two of the largest spreaders of disinformation on the planet, but since the Supremacy shares their ideology we shouldn’t count on that ever happening.
This is something that no one wants to talk about. The same people who keep accusing conservative speech of being disinformation and misinformation are the ones who are really spreading misinformation and disinformation, and they do it on a daily basis. CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, BBC, you name it, the mainstream media are the ones who spread disinformation as if that’s their job. We spent nearly three years of daily reports about Trump-Russia collusion. They spread misinformation about Trump for four years just to interfere with his ability to govern. Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, and others from Silicon Valley have censored free speech by calling it disinformation when all it really was is speech they don’t like. These are the entities who are defining disinformation?
This is far more sinister than the censorship from social media companies who also now interfere in our elections and silence all political speech that they don’t like. They’re now going to trace anything you produce from the CPU level of your computer and use it against you if you piss them off. This is the most dangerous thing the tech tyrants have ever come up with.
Call your representatives, because this will be a nightmare for our society. Privacy will truly be a thing of the past. This is Soviet-style personal intrusion at a much worse rate than anything the Russian politburo of old could have come up with. The old KGB would be proud. Tech tyrants do not have the right to declare someone’s free speech as disinformation simply because they don’t like what is said. They are the public town square now and they should be treated as a de facto government. Unfortunately for our republic, this dangerous set of events are happening when the worst kind of people control the federal government.
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo addressed the sexual harassment claims against his brother, Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo, in a short statement on his show after more accusations surfaced.
Cuomo recognized that the network would have to cover the story about his brother and pointed out that he could not because of an apparent conflict of interest. In fact, Axios reported that the CNN host was banned by CNN from covering his brother.
“Before we start tonight, let me say something that I’m sure is very obvious to you who watch my show and thank you for that,” said Cuomo.
“You’re straight with me, I’ll be straight with you,” he added. I don’t know what he means by that. His audience is straight with him?
“Obviously I am aware of what is going on with my brother. And obviously, I cannot cover it because he is my brother. Now, of course, CNN has to cover it. They have covered it extensively and they will continue to do so,” Cuomo added.
“I have always cared, very deeply, about these issues, and profoundly so,” he concluded. “I just wanted to tell you that, there’s a lot of news going on that matters also, so let’s get after that.”
I’m surprised he didn’t do a “Republicans pounce!” story where the Fake News media always makes the story, not about any wrongdoing done by a Democrat, but rather, how Republicans are all chiming on to pounce on the story. That way, the Fake News folks can say they covered the story even though they attacked Republicans, who did nothing wrong, in the process.
The younger Cuomo was slammed by users pointing out that the CNN host didn’t refrain from covering his governor brother prior to these latest accusations of workplace sexual harassment. Some made fun of the host reminding him of a segment where he had his brother on the show making fun of him by holding up a giant cotton swab he would have to use to test for COVID.
We reported on Lindsey Boylan and Charlotte Bennett coming out with allegations against Governor Cuomo of sexual harassment while working for him in his administration.
Then on Monday, a third accuser has come forward with accusations against Cuomo saying he made unwanted advances on her as well. According to the woman this happened during a wedding back in September of 2019. She even has hard evidence, a photograph that was taken that captures the interaction. What a horny old creep.
Lindsey Boylan, who served as Deputy Secretary for Economic Development and Special Advisor for the Cuomo administration spanning from March 2015 until October 2018, initially made accusations that Cuomo inappropriately kissed her on the lips without her consent. Charlotte Bennett said Cuomo flirted with her and asked her inappropriate questions like was she in a relationship, is she monogamous when she’s in a relationship, has she ever dated older men, then he informed the 25-year-old aide that he had no problem dating women over 22. He told her he wanted “a girlfriend, preferably in the Albany area.” Bennett said she understood he was grooming her.
“I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Bennett told the New York Times. “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.”
Governor Cuomo finally responded to the first two accusers giving a statement that ended up being a non-apology apology where he pretty much said he was sorry that these women misinterpreted what he did. In other words, these two women are so stupid they couldn’t figure out that when he inappropriately kissed one of them on the lips, touched parts of the body without consent, and said things that added a whole lot of unwanted pressure on them that he was simply acting as a mentor. In fact, Cuomo actually said he wanted to be a mentor for Bennett. Then why did the 63-three-year-old Democratic governor ask her if she has had sex with older men? Why did he have to let her know that “he’s fine with anyone above the age of 22?” Men who want to mentor women more than half their age don’t believe that way.
The Biden administration has already done enough to endear itself to history’s greatest 20th-century dictators would they be around in the modern age. Joe Biden has reversed many Trump-era policies that made America great again, the reversals certain to harm many Americans in all kinds of ways. It’s as if the Democratic elites in Washington are imposing a great get-evenism campaign against the great unwashed which is you and me. From opening the border to not only rewarding illegal aliens who have lived here illegally for years with no threat of deportations but giving them citizenship to offering welfare benefits to any migrant who happens to stumble across our border – open borders and a welfare state cannot be done simultaneously without calamity – to extending lockdowns on Americans when they are no longer needed and a whole host of other things that are going to make the lives of hundreds of millions of Americans miserable. So this next thing shouldn’t come as a surprise.
White House senior adviser Cedric Richmond has said that the Biden administration will “start acting now” to work on giving reparations for black Americans in the form of government-funded (meaning your tax dollars) college tuition and other things, saying there’s no need to wait for Congress to study the prospect of direct payments to Americans based on race.
Actually, there is a need to wait for Congress. It’s called the Constitution. Richmond, in his own words, doesn’t care to figure out if punishing one group of Americans to give reparations to another group of Americans is fair or not. He cares more about getting the payments out. He just wants to check that box off the list. How much do you want to bet the Democrats in Congress and the Biden administration will have reparations done before a single American receives a COVID relief stimulus check? Every time we allow politicians to disregard the Constitutional process we kill our republic a little bit more. Death by a thousand cuts is how progressives have been killing our country for decades, only now they want to hack away large chunks of our freedoms at a time with no regard to the damage they will do.
That study Richmond doesn’t want to wait for is supposed to, among other things, weigh the harm that will be done to millions of innocent Americans, black and white, who had nothing to do with racism in America. Do you think any of the Biden Woke Supremacy cares one iota about white people being accused and punished for past racism from 156 years ago? Do you think they are considering whether or not a reparations package will create resentment by black and white Americans and further divide our country? Not at all, because progressives are cold-blooded tyrants who will push through whatever they want.
Just to give you an idea who this man is, when Richmond served in Congress as a Democrat from Louisiana, during a Congressional hearing he once inferred that now-former Attorney General William Barr was racist, claiming that when Barr arrived at the hearing none of his staff were black and that that was a sign of systemic racism. He acknowledged that Barr has sung high praises of the late Congressman John Conyers during his earlier questioning, and went on to tell Barr that because there were no black staffers with him that day to keep former Congressman John Lewsis’ name out of the DOJ’s mouth. Richmond has no idea how many black staffers work for the AG. He has no idea how staffers are picked to travel to Congress with the Attorney General. Could it be that black staffers for the AG were working on something else? Could it be that the expertise of black staffers who work for the AG was in another field of study other than the topics to be covered at that particular hearing? The level is disrespect from this man toward the Attorney General of the United States was astounding. That’s who is pushing the reparations agenda.
There are questions that arise about reparations. If we do go forward with them how are they going to decide who receives reparations? Will it be determined by skin color, which means even non-African Americans like Kamala Harris will be on the list? Will black millionaires receive reparations for systemic racism that held them back from becoming successful? Who will have to pay for reparations? Again, will it be determined by the color of skin? What about me? My family didn’t come to America until the year 1900, so my ancestors couldn’t have had anything to do with American slavery. Am I going to be added to the list of systemically racist Americans who have to pay? When you think about it, isn’t the whole modern-day concept of reparations racist in its implementation by the Woke Supremacy?
Last month, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties held a hearing on HR 40, a bill sponsored by crazy Representative Sheila (Shirley if you’re Joe Biden) Jackson Lee (D-TX) and co-sponsored by 161 other Democrats, all Woke Supremamcists, that would set up a federal commission to explore reparations for black Americans, The Hill reported.
Richmond, a Democratic former congressman from Louisiana, told “Axios on HBO” that he believes legislation to create such a commission will pass, but, “We don’t want to wait on a study. We’re going to start acting now.”
“We have to start breaking down systemic racism and barriers that have held people of color back and especially African Americans,” Richmond told the outlet, reiterating, “We have to do stuff now.”
This push to gaslight America into believing there is systemic racism in America is very harmful to the country. If racism is systemic then Cedric Richmond is racist as well. And even if America were systemically racist, which I completely condemn that notion, how would reparations for people who were never slaves being paid by people who never owned slaves, solve a systemically-racist society in the first place? If you ask these idiots behind this scam they would respond by saying, “It’s a good start,” because they wouldn’t really have a good answer.
Richmond added, “If you start talking about free college tuition to [historically black colleges and universities] and you start talking about free community college in Title I and all of those things, I think you are well on your way.”
For accuracy purposes, nothing is free. Someone is going to pay the bill, and it’s you who is getting stuck with it.
The truly sad part of this nightmare known as the Biden administration is that the previous administration had done more to help black Americans than any past president save Abraham Lincoln. President Donald Trump targeted the black community with his economic policies and he successfully drove the black unemployment rate to the lowest in the history of the republic. He gave more money to historically black colleges and universities (HBCU) and Trump removed the indignity imposed by past administrations by adding increases in HBCU yearly grants to the budget so that they didn’t have to grovel at the feet of government politicians each year. Trump did the first major prison reform in decades that ironically reversed Joe Biden’s 1994 crime bill signed into law by President Bill Clinton that put many young black men in prison for long sentences over non-violent crimes. Trump signed the First Step Act which gave prisoners a second chance at life by giving early release to prisoners who have shown they deserve it. The First Step Act helped many black families reunite with loved ones who they never thought they would see free again.
The Biden Democrats act like none of that happened.
Biden’s senior adviser was ginning up the urgency asserted by White House Press Secretary Jen Circle Back Psaki, who was asked two weeks ago about the president’s views on the reparations bill.
The Associated Press reported that while Psaki didn’t say that Biden would sign the legislation if it reaches his desk – we all know he will do whatever his progressive masters tell him to do – Psaki said during a press conference that “he certainly would support a study of reparations.” Who does she think she’s kidding? Biden would sign it today if put on his desk.
“He understands we don’t need a study to take action right now on systemic racism,” Psaki said, adding, “so he wants to take actions within his own government in the meantime.”
There is no systemic racism in America. There are too many black Americans who are living the American dream. If America were systemically racist there would not be successful black people. It wouldn’t be allowed. The Woke Supremacists want you to believe that if you deny systemic racism exists you’re saying there is no racism at all, which is a completely different argument, but these people are not rational. Racism exists in all its ugly forms, but to indict an entire country of people of being racist, which is exactly what they are doing when they claim America is systemically racist, is unfair and irrational, and forcing innocent people to pay for crimes they never committed most of whose ancestors also never committed is criminal.
Something happened to the Republican Party after Donald Trump came along. For decades registered Republicans across the country fought to keep the liberal Democrats at bay hoping upon hope that Republican policies would win the day and the American government would start behaving the way the Founding Fathers intended them to behave once again.
But alas, it was not to be, because there are too many fake Republican RINOs – an acronym meaning “Republicans In Name Only” – elected to office who want nothing more than to be loved by the media and the Democrats. John McCain (dead), Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Jeff Flake (gone), Lisa Murkowski, you know the types, they vote against the party to make it appear that they’re bold and principled by standing up to the mean Republicans and side with the Democrats. The Democrats on the other hand always stick together whether out of fear or they worked like robots for so long they forget that they are supposed to vote for what’s right for the country. I’m not all that concerned about the Democrats. We know what we get with them.
It’s the RINOs we need to worry about. Worse than Democrats, we often rely on their votes to pass fundamental reforms to the system, and I’,m getting sick and tired of having to worry about what a pompous ass like Romney would do when it comes to certain things. Wouldn’t it be much better if we got rid of the RINOs and replaced them with solid conservatives who love the Constitution and would never side with the socialist party on the other side of the aisle?
Former President Donald Trump thinks so as well, and on Sunday he revealed how he plans to target those RINO Republicans who supported his second impeachment.
When the House impeached President Trump back in January, they charged him with “incitement of insurrection,” and ten House Republicans joined the Democrats by supporting their radical effort, including Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY), who is the third highest-ranking Republican in the House.
The trend of stupidity continued in the Senate as a group of Republican RINO Senators joined forces with the lunatic liberals and voted to convict and remove President Trump from office even though he had already left office and even though the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court did not preside because even he knew the whole impeachment sham was a real fustercluck. Fortunately, the Senate did not reach the 67 votes that were needed to set such horrible precedence.
Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Florida on Sunday, Trump shredded his RINO opponents and vowed he is going to actively campaign against them. It’s not a get evenism ploy on Trump’s part. He understands how RINOs bring harm to the cause of liberty, how their selfish actions of “look at me” politics hurt the American people.
“I’m announcing that I will be actively working to elect strong, tough, and smart Republican leaders,” Trump said, and the CPAC crowd started chanting “USA! USA! USA!”
In fact, Trump claimed that RINOs will “destroy the Republican Party and the American worker and will destroy our country itself.”
“Now more than ever is the time for tough, strong, and energetic Republican leaders who have spines of steel. We need strong leadership. We cannot have leaders who show more passion for condemning their fellow Americans than they have ever shown for standing up to Democrats, the media, and the radicals who want to turn America into a socialist country,” Trump said.
“Instead of attacking me and more importantly the voters of our movement, top establishment Republicans in Washington should be spending their energy in opposing Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, and the Democrats,” Trump declared.
And they never do. When was the last time you heard any of them take the initiative to stand up against the Democrats on any one of their goofy and dangerous policy proposals? It just doesn’t happen. They may sometimes vote against Democrat bills, but they remain quiet leading up to the vote. In fact, the only time you really see a RINO get vocal is when they are either trashing Trump, Trump supporters, or the American people who disagree with them.
Trump named some Republican politicians he said he will campaign against.
“The Democrats don’t have grandstanders like Mitt Romney, little Ben Sasse, Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Pat Toomey, and in the House, Tom Rice [of] South Carolina, Adam Kinzinger, Dan Newhouse, Anthony Gonzalez. That’s another beauty. Fred Upton, Jaime Herrera Beutler, Peter Meyer, John Katko, David Valadao. And of course the warmonger, a person that loves seeing our troops fighting, Liz Cheney. How about that? The good news is in her state, she’s been censured, and in her state, her poll numbers have dropped faster than any human being I’ve ever seen. So hopefully they’ll get rid of her with the next election.”
“Get rid of them all,” Trump declared.
I’m sorry, but there is no other way. The Democrats stick together to fight for socialism and it’s high time the Republicans have a party in DC that fights together in full strength to push for liberty, less government, lower taxes. It’s time the GOP stands for America First where working-class families get to live better lives instead of politicians in the DC swamp.
