‘Blah Blah Blah!’ Disturbing Video Shows Dem Dismiss Record Low Minority Unemployment

The New Democrats…

Regardless of party affiliation, every American should be able to agree that record low unemployment for minorities is a good thing.

Anti-Trump Democrat Gwen Moore (WI) couldn’t care less simply because President Trump’s policies are making things better for the American people.

Seems a little odd, no?

Check this out…

From CNBC, circa December 2018:

The employment picture for black Americans is better than ever.

On Friday, the rate of unemployed Africans Americans in the United States fell 0.3 percent to 5.9 percent, a tying a new record low reached in May.

A better unemployment rate doesn’t tell the whole story though. The demographic still lags behind the national unemployment rate, which remained unchanged in November at 3.7 percent.

At the 2019 State of the Union address, Trump spoke of unity.

He also happened to bring up the fact that black, Hispanic, and Asian unemployment has hit record low levels.

Democrats weren’t exactly thrilled, for whatever the reason.

Speaker Pelosi refused to clap. She wouldn’t stand, either.

More from the SOTU:

During a recent presser, Pelosi proposed a solution to the border crisis.

Who needs a wall or more traditional forms of security when you can have “electronic dogs?”

WATCH:

How about paying “reparations” to “descendants of slaves” to “repair” some of the racial “damage” in America?

As Democrats are poised to take over the majority in the House of Representatives, one item on the agenda will be to “study” the need for reparations for descendants of slaves.

Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee plans to reintroduce a bill that would create a committee to look at financial compensation for blacks.

Jackson Lee: “It’s a commission to study the issue of what was the economic impact of the work of slaves and how does it translate in the 21st Century. And what we want to do is to build a narrative, a story of the facts and out of that be able to access how we repair some of the damage.

When you look at urban blight, when you look at schools in inner cities and rural communities that are not at the level of excellence that they should be, when you look at support for [historically black colleges and universities], all of that will be part of understanding that whole journey and that whole economic journey.

And it is interesting that these magnificent buildings were built by slaves, obviously with no compensation. That is not what we are asking for; this bill is to have a commission to hear from people all over the nation.

LISTEN:

You might remember Jackson Lee as the Congresswoman who was bumped to first class because she didn’t want to sit in coach, then blamed the ordeal on racism.

From Fox News:

Jean-Marie Simon, an attorney and private school teacher, became the latest face of airline passenger woes when she detailed on Facebook and later to the news media how she lost her seat to the Texas lawmaker.

Simon’s words from a Facebook post:

I am not given to publishing epistles on Facebook, and especially at Christmas, but now I have my very own United Airlines story to share:

Not feeling sufficiently cowed by the media debacle following its forcible and well-documented removal of a ticketed passenger from a Kentucky bound flight in April, the friendly skies of United continues to treat passengers badly, and to lie. This time, it involved United flight #788 from Houston to Reagan National on December 18, 2017. And a U.S. Congressperson whom I’ll call “X.” And me.

On December 3, 2017, I bought a round trip, first class ticket to Guatemala. I selected four first class seats at time of purchase. United provided an email confirmation. Everything was fine until I returned to Houston yesterday.

The last segment was flight #788 from IAH in Houston to Reagan National in DC. Because the flight was delayed taking off, I was at Gate E4 an hour early. About half an hour before departure, a uniformed United flight attendant pulled “X” out of priority line 1, saying, “Let’s get on.” The United attendant and “X” boarded the plane before the pre-boarding of uniformed military, toddlers, disabilities and elite Global Services passengers, and even a group of fellow Texas congressmen. Line 1 boarded, but when they scanned my ticket, my seat and my reservation had been removed from the system. The gate agent could not find my seat; she could not even find my ticket or my name. The gate agent called over a second United agent, who confirmed that I had no seat, not just the first class seat I had purchased, but no seat, period.

The male agent assumed that I was late coming in from another flight or another airline. The first agent told him no, that I had been on United, that my first segment had arrived three hours earlier, and that I had been at the gate. Then he told me that perhaps I had cancelled my own reservation. I said that was impossible: I had a boarding ticket in hand and I just wanted to get home. Then he told me that “united.com has changed your reservation” and there was nothing United could do about it. I said I wanted my seat, that I had paid a lot of miles for that seat, and that it was United’s responsibility to undo the seat. He said no, because I had “unreserved” my seat and “X” had taken it, that “X” had been “upgraded.” He said I could “stand here and argue” and miss the flight or book another flight elsewhere. I said I wanted my seat, 1A that I had paid for and one that “X” in 1A was now freeloading, literally at my expense. He said that couldn’t happen because they couldn’t “disrupt” what was already done. He offered me a $300 voucher. I said I wanted $500 and a free meal. He said, “And I want a Mercedes Benz, but that’s not going to happen.” Then he invited me to complete a United online survey when the flight was over.

I was the last passenger on the plane. A Texas congressman, a nice guy, sat down next to me. He said was glad I had made it on the flight. I showed him my boarding pass with my seat, 1A, printed on it. He said, “You know what happened, right? Do you know who’s in your seat?” I said no. He told me that “X” was a fellow Texas congressperson who regularly does this, that this was the third time he had seen “X” bump a passenger. Then he asked me if I knew whom “X” represents in Congress: Bush International Airport in Houston. He apologized for “X,” saying, “’X’ gives us all a bad name; it’s shameful.”

The hydraulic pump on the flight wasn’t working, so after 50 minutes stalled at the gate, passengers were invited to consult with a gate agent at the front of the plane about alternative flights. I went to the front of the plane, where “X” was in my seat. I took a picture. I told a flight attendant, the one who had pre-boarded “X,” that I knew why I had been bumped.

Five minutes later a flight attendant sat down next to me and asked if I was going to be a “problem” on the flight. I asked if she heard me shouting or complaining. She said no, but I had taken a photo. (Taking photos is not illegal: if I had been a happy constituent of “X” and had asked to take a photo with “X,” “X” would happily have complied.) The flight attendant said that security would remove me from the plane if I created problems. I said I just wanted to get home. She went away.

United lied to me, repeatedly. They put “X” on the plane and then tried to blame it on a late incoming flight, another airline, my cell phone, united.com, and on everybody but the United employee who deliberately erased my seat, my ticket, and my name from the system.

United has some wonderful employees, like the gate agents at Reagan National and some flight attendants who, if there’s a war, I want on my side. But unfortunately, what one most remembers is the humiliation and expense wrought by United, which apparently believes that we all should be lucky to be flying the friendly skies with an airline that treats the paying public like dirt.

Huckabee Goes NUCLEAR After April Ryan Calls for Sarah Sanders’ Head to Be Lopped Off

That escalated QUICKLY!

CNN’s April Ryan has been a Democrat Party activist since Donald Trump became president. Her outbursts during White House Press Conferences have become a thing of legend – right up there with fellow CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s. Now, tensions have escalated in a big way after Ryan called for Sarah Sanders’ head to be “lopped off.” This is considered journalism to many members of the media in 2019. Sarah’s dad, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, took umbrage with April’s words. Then, it became a Twitter war… Appearing Thursday on CNN’s Outfront, Ryan, who also serves as a political analyst for the network, claimed Sanders had no “credibility left” after special counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released. Ryan noted, “She outright lied, and the people, the American people, can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people’s house.” She added, “When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off. It’s ‘Fire Me Thursday’ or ‘Fire Me Good Friday.’ She needs to go.” Enter Huckabee: So liberals—is this okay?Does CNN have the integrity to deal w/ this incitement to murder?

PIGS ARE FLYING! CNN Savagely Tears Obama Apart After Revelations of Mueller Report

Even a broken clock…

John Salvatore

Published

Donald Trump was exonerated once and for all when Attorney General Bill Barr made it clear there was zero collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign. Barack Obama, on the other hand, won’t come out completely unscathed. And this is coming from CNN – a vehement defender of 44 and his legacy. Check this out… From CNN: The partisan warfare over the Mueller report will rage, but one thing cannot be denied: Former President Barack Obama looks just plain bad. On his watch, the Russians meddled in our democracy while his administration did nothing about it. The Mueller report flatly states that Russia began interfering in American democracy in 2014. Over the next couple of years, the effort blossomed into a robust attempt to interfere in our 2016 presidential election. The Obama administration knew this was going on and yet did nothing. In 2016, Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice told her staff to “stand down” and “knock it off” as they drew up plans to “strike back” against the Russians, according to an account from Michael Isikoff and David Corn in their book “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump”. Why did Obama go soft on Russia? My opinion is that it was because he was singularly focused on the nuclear deal with Iran. Obama wanted Putin in the deal, and to stand up to him on election interference would have, in Obama’s estimation, upset that negotiation. This turned out to be a disastrous policy decision. While speaking with White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, CNN’s Jake Tapper literally said his network made no errors when it came to reporting on alleged Russia collusion. That’s like Stacey Abrams saying she is the rightfully elected governor of Georgia. It’s…
