Maxine Waters Blames Trump’s ‘Dog Whistling’ For Death Of George Floyd

Published

on

Rep. Maxine Waters has once again put her hatred for President Donald Trump on full display, going full swing in an attack against him by blaming his death at the hands of a police officer as being directly related to his conduct.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is a huge leap in logic that we’ve somewhat grown accustom to from Waters, who is desperate to pin something, anything, on Trump in order to help damage his chances of being reelected come November. How effective her strategy is remains to be seen.

In a video that was obtained earlier this week by TMZ, Waters said, “My first thought was not again, not one more killing. And I’m reflecting on all of the killings of young black men in particular, but of course black women too, at the hands of the police and at the hands of, you know, these white supremacists.”

Waters, a Democrat from California, continued: “And I’m thinking about the way that the president conducts himself. In a way, he’s dog whistling, and I think that they’re feeling that they can get away with this kind of treatment. And I’m just so sorry about the loss of another life.”

On Monday, 46-year-old George Floyd died while in police custody after officers responded to a call of someone using counterfeit money to make a purchase at a convenience store.

Video taken at the scene of the incident shows an officer holding Floyd down on the ground by putting his knee on his neck as the man pleads with the officer to get off of him, informing him he can’t breathe.

The four officers who were involved in the situation have been terminated from their positions on the police force. The mayor of Minneapolis has asked that the individual officer who had his knee placed on Floyd’s neck be charged with murder.

“I think that the officer who had his knee on his neck enjoyed doing what he was doing,” Waters stated. “I believe sometime some of these officers leave home thinking, ‘I’m going to get me one today.’ And I think this is his one that he got today.”

“The justice system does not work, because the justice system will find a way to protect those offices in most cases. They will find justifiable homicide. And that’s what we’ve got to deal with. We’ve got to deal with the fact that we’re in America with a justice system that does not work for everybody,” Waters commented.

The incident has caused massive rioting and looting in the city of Minneapolis, with businesses actually being burned to the ground.

NC Democrat Who Slammed Coronavirus Program Received Millions From It

Published

on

North Carolina Democratic Senate nominee Cal Cunningham was a rather outspoken hater of the coronavirus stimulus package, but it seems that his criticisms weren’t enough to get him to forego allowing his company to receive $2 million in taxpayer dollars from the Paycheck Protection Program, which he claimed “harms communities.” Funny how many of these individuals on the left will slam a program like this, but secretly put their hands out for it when they think no one is watching. Here’s more on this from The Free Beacon: WasteZero, a Raleigh-based environmentalist trash service, obtained between $1 and $2 million in PPP funding on May 3, data released by the Small Business Administration on Monday show. Cunningham earned about $400,000 in 2019 in his role as the company’s general counsel and vice president. He has repeatedly criticized the federal program, which aims to support small businesses struggling with coronavirus shutdowns. Just two months after Senate Democrats blocked a Republican effort to bankroll the depleting fund in April, Cunningham called the program “unacceptable,” saying it “harms communities.” “For PPP loans to have ‘generally missed the industries and areas most heavily impacted by COVID-19′ is unacceptable,” he said in a tweet. “Leaving behind small businesses—and disproportionately those that are Black- and Latino-owned—harms communities.” The former state legislator “supports [WasteZero’s] outreach to municipal and state leaders,” according to an archive of the company’s website. Cunningham also has stock options and a convertible note of up to $50,000 tied to the company, according to his candidate financial report. Cunningham told reporters that he was still working for the company in February. He has since been removed from WasteZero’s website and the company does not publicly acknowledge any legal representation on its site. Neither Cunningham nor WasteZero responded to requests for comment about PPP or…

White House Now Considering $1 Trillion Pandemic Relief Bill

Published

on

The White House is mulling over a second coronavirus relief package and is estimating that it will cost somewhere in the ballpark of $1 trillion, according to reports from Marc Short, chief of staff for Vice President Mike Pence. Yes, you read that correctly. That’s “trillion,” with a “t.” The last major bill that was crafted to help small businesses and individuals directly impacted by the coronavirus shutdown was over $600 billion. Short spoke with the folks on Bloomberg radio saying, “There’s obviously a lot of stimulus put in the system over the last couple of bills, and so the price tag for us would be that.” Folks, this is racking up the national debt in ways that are almost unfathomable to comprehend, which is why this isn’t a very good long term strategy. We cannot keep pumping funny money into the economy and expecting it to make a full recovery. What we need is to get back to producing, full swing, to stop things from getting worse. This requires state governors to open up their economies a bit faster than they already are and to loosen some restrictions on companies that might require such measures. Of course, we still need to be as careful as possible not to cause a second spike of the virus, but without herd immunity, this thing is never, ever going to go away. We have to think of the long term picture and not just the short-term. Leftists want to look at the mortality rate for this thing and want it to be zero, completely eliminated. That, of course, is a wonderful goal and something we should want as well. However, we have to acknowledge that as much as we want that, it’s not going to happen. People are still going to die from…
