‘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?

Trending: REPORT: AOC’s Chief of Staff Was Hired After Funneling Money Through Her Boyfriend

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.

WATCH:

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.

Socialism and Gun Control Are Losing Lottery Tickets in Las Vegas

This “spray and pray” method of choosing a nominee has left the oddsmakers in Sin City with only one real choice.

2020 election

No one can be quite sure if politics will ever be the same after this, the Trump Era.

Certainly, we have already discovered that we will no longer have elections like those we saw in the past, either, with the 2016 circus still continuing to this very day in the Robert Mueller investigation and the “resistance” movement.

The coming 2020 election is shaping up to be no less frenzied than the 2016 contest, although the democrats are the group who’ve convinced themselves to try the “spaghetti on the wall” method of choosing a nominee:  Throw the entire party at the wall and see what sticks.

This isn’t exactly the sort of shrewd, political nuance that has bookies in Las Vegas sweating, either.  This “spray and pray” method of leading your party has left the oddsmakers with only one real choice.

The entry of Sen. Bernie Sanders and 11 other White House challengers has not changed the gambling odds on the expectation that President Trump will win re-election.

The latest odds, taken after Sanders joined the 2020 race on Tuesday, put Trump as a 3-2 lock to win re-election followed most closely by Sen. Kamala Harris, at 10-1.

And the odds of Sanders winning didn’t budge despite announcing his race, said Dave Mason, the sportsbook brand manager of BetOnline.ag.

In a cruel twist of irony for the doomed democrats, a recent poll showed that they had two frontrunners in a dead heat for 2020.

The problem is that neither of these candidates is currently even running a campaign.  One has even flatly said “no”.

POLICE: Smollett Hoaxed Hate Crime to Raise Publicity, Paycheck

Smollett’s crimes are heinous to begin with, but a reasoning of mental health concerns or substance abuse would certainly have sat better with the American people than simple greed.

Jussie Smollett

There are despicable acts committed by despicable people every day, but we, as a society, hold certain egregious infractions as far more sinister than others.

Of course, these are the most heinous of crimes; murder, rape, pedophilia, and hate crimes.  The only situations worse than these acts themselves, is the exploitation of the emotion they cause for personal gain.

That precisely what police are alleging that actor Jussie Smollett has done, now twice having been the phony victim of a phony hate crime concocted by he himself.

What’s even more vile is the reason that police are saying Smollett committed these acts:  Money.

Jussie Smollett, upset by his salary and seeking publicity, staged a fake assault on himself a week after writing himself a threatening letter, the Chicago police said Thursday after the “Empire” actor surrendered to face a charge of filing a false police report.

Eddie T. Johnson, the visibly angry Chicago police superintendent, said Mr. Smollett had taken advantage of the pain and anger of racism, draining resources that could have been used to investigate other crimes for which people were actually suffering.

Johnson then deftly and tactfully made a plea for Americans to get their heads out of Hollywood.

“I just wish that the families of gun violence in this city got this much attention,” he said at a news conference in Chicago.

Smollett’s crimes are heinous to begin with, but a reasoning of mental health concerns or substance abuse would certainly have sat better with the American people than simple greed.

Of course, given the mainstream media’s soft takes on Smollett, there is certainly time for his PR firm to concoct just such a story in an effort to save his career.
