Hey, MSM! Is this story not big enough to cover?

Here’s another big story an honest media would love to cover.

The thing is, it shines a negative light on a prominent minority Democrat.

Therefore, it won’t get any real coverage.

From Fox News:

A former staffer for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, has claimed in a lawsuit that she was fired last year in retaliation for legal action the staffer planned to bring against the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF) related to an alleged rape in 2015.

In a statement released Thursday, Jackson Lee’s office denied “that it retaliated against, or otherwise improperly treated” the staffer, who is identified in the lawsuit only as “Jane Doe.”

“While we still deny the allegations, we are especially concerned about Ms. Doe and only want the best for her and the many, many young people that the Congressional office has supported, encouraged, and provided opportunities for over 20 years,” the statement concluded.

Fired for planning to report a rape, huh?

Facepalm.

The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives has already made clear they intend to go after guns.

They’re also likely to legalize a lot of “undocumented” immigrants.

What could make things worse?

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

Because throwing money at a problem has always worked in the past, huh?

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:

A United passenger whose first-class seat on a recent flight from Houston to D.C. was given to Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is firing back at the Democratic congresswoman’s accusations of racism – while challenging the airline’s account of the incident.

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.

Bernie Sanders Proposes Universal Child Care That Costs $1.5 Trillion To Be Financed By ‘Tax On Extreme Wealth’

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders, a proud socialist running for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination take on President Trump this year for the White House, has just unveiled a new plan to guarantee child care through age three, as well as universal free prekindergarten education, and the cost for this program is absolutely mind blowing. The plan would cost — get ready for this — a whopping $1.5 trillion, yes “trillion,” and would be funded by a tax on the “extreme wealth” of the country, whatever that means. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: The Democratic presidential candidate said that the proposal would “substantially reduce the massive level of wealth inequality in America, create new and good jobs, enable parents to more easily balance the demands of work and home, and give our children the best chance at leading healthy, happy lives.” The Vermont senator would pay for the proposal through his wealth tax on those with over $32 million in net worth. His campaign has said that this tax would raise approximately $4.35 trillion over 10 years. Sanders’s campaign says the proposal will improve job flexibility for parents, improve childhood development, and increase wages and training for child care workers. Other top Democratic candidates, such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former mayors Pete Buttigieg and Mike Bloomberg, have also put forward their own child care plans, but Sanders’s is the broadest and most expensive. If you were on the fence about whether or not Bernie Sanders was a legitimate socialist, this massive big government program and subsequent tax designed to redistribute wealth should remove all doubt. A program of this magnitude would decimate our economy, and this isn’t even including all the other insane things that Sanders wants to implement. His policies would utterly destroy our country, which is why we…

President Trump announced that India has reached a $3 billion defense deal with the United States, which includes the country purchasing several military-grade helicopters. Trump delivered a speech on Monday alongside Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Sardar Patel Stadium, which is the largest cricket stadium in the country, capable of housing more than 100,000 people. During his talk, Trump confirmed that the U.S. had approved the purchase of several military helicopters from America as part of the larger defense deal between the two countries. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “The United States looks forward to providing India with the best and most-feared military equipment on the planet. We make the greatest weapons ever made — airplanes, missiles, rockets, ships. We make the best, and we are dealing now with India,” the president said. He continued, “I am pleased to announce that tomorrow our representatives will sign deals to sell over $3 billion in the absolute finest, state-of-the-art military helicopters and other equipment to the Indian armed forces.” Trump, who held a rally with Modi in Texas in September, described the friendship between the two nations as being strong. He called Modi a “great friend” and vowed that the U.S. and India would remain allies. https://twitter.com/narendramodi/status/1231918893964251136 Both countries were due to talk about trade during the state visit, however the president stated that no deal has been finalized at this time. He spoke with reporters saying that he felt “no rush” to complete negotiations, but added that “We are doing well with India, we are making deals.” Trump’s speech in India was accepted with warm applause from the packed out stadium. He went on to thank the crowd gathered to hear him speak for the “spectacular welcome,” saying he would never forget the “remarkable hospitality” of the Indian…
