WATCH: Omarosa, Speaking to Al Sharpton, Doubles Down on Race-Baiting Rhetoric

Published

on

As crazy as Omarosa Manigault is, she sure knows exactly what to say to make the left cheer.

Remember, this was a woman they absolutely hated until about five minutes ago, when she cleverly uttered the words “Trump and racist” without the word “not” in the same sentence and became their new hero.

Manigault, a thrice-fired former White House employee who became a household name after acting like a psychopath on “The Apprentice”, joins adult film actress Stormy Daniels in the left’s canonization of anyone who they think might help them take down Trump (or at least craft sensationalist headlines in the process).

Fresh of the heels of rambling on about the mysterious “n-word” tape, Manigault spoke to legendary race-baiter Al Sharpton over the weekend and cleverly played right to his audience.

By that I mean, she ramped the racial rhetoric up to eleven.

Here is the exchange:

SHARPTON: Let me ask this. In terms of diversity in the White House, I’ve been in this as you know a long time, [in] civil rights, I can’t think of a president, even [a] Republican, from Nixon on that didn’t have a black in the West Wing in at least the discussions, in the senior administrative leadership until now. You were the most public face there, and even there, they didn’t want you in a lot of the meetings that you insisted to be in as I read the book.

MANIGAULT NEWMAN: That’s right.

SHARPTON: He’s the first president that has outright excluded – he can call me and other activists racist all he wants — he’s the only one with a lily white inner circle. Am I right?

MANIGAULT NEWMAN: You’re absolutely correct — and it’s much much worse than people even realize. There’s 30 assistants to the president right now. There are none representing the African-American community. There are SESs as well as Schedule Cs that make up the bulk of the appointments to each of the agencies, and the diversity in the agency is very sparse, and, in fact, when we submitted candidates, they were rejected over and over again. And I will tell you that they haven’t even made an attempt to replace anyone in OPL to do the African-American outreach; they just kind of detailed a guy over for just three months, I think to do a little window dressing, but there is really no real commitment to diversity in the White House.

And he’s unapologetic about it because he’s completely contradicted the commitment he made when he did that campaign of “what do you have to lose?” Well, clearly we have to lose a voice, an advocate, someone who understands the issues and knows how to reach out to [the] community. We have a lot to lose, and in fact, we’re losing right now because Donald Trump is disingenuous about his engagement and his outreach, and in fact, I believe he wants to start a race war in this country.

Predictable.

When is the left going to try something new?

New Pork Rules Could Outlaw Bacon in California

This would be an unforgivable overreach by the state government.

Published

There are plenty of times in which Americans engage in a bit of exaggeration at the expense of our federal government.  It’s a defense mechanism, really, in which we are trained to extrapolate the worst possible outcome of any interaction with our elected officials, to guard against abuse at the hands of the tyrannical among us. Very rarely do these sorts of predictions come true.  Truly, this is just part of the American DNA, and it has deep roots in the caffeinated waters of Boston Harbor back in 1773. And if you thought that a new tax on tea was a flimsy enough excuse to rail against the oppressors, what happens when a state government outlaws bacon? At the beginning of next year, California will begin enforcing an animal welfare proposition approved overwhelmingly by voters in 2018 that requires more space for breeding pigs, egg-laying chickens and veal calves. National veal and egg producers are optimistic they can meet the new standards, but only 4% of hog operations now comply with the new rules. Unless the courts intervene or the state temporarily allows non-compliant meat to be sold in the state, California will lose almost all of its pork supply, much of which comes from Iowa, and pork producers will face higher costs to regain a key market. The threat is no hogwash, either. California’s restaurants and groceries use about 255 million pounds of pork a month, but its farms produce only 45 million pounds, according to Rabobank, a global food and agriculture financial services company. The National Pork Producers Council has asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture for federal aid to help pay for retrofitting hog facilities around the nation to fill the gap. Hog farmers said they haven’t complied because of the cost and because California hasn’t yet issued…

Pro-Trump PACs Rake in The Dough, Setting Former POTUS Up with Massive War Chest

The sheer value of Trump’s coffers is nigh unprecedented.

Despite his arbitrary removal from both Twitter and Facebook, former President Donald Trump continues to exude a great deal of sway over the American political ecosystem…and he’s only going to get more influential from here. Trump and his surrogates are still months away from officially announcing anything as far as 2024 goes, but, with the 2022 midterms just around the corner, the MAGA machine is already beginning to get tuned up. And let’s just say that there is plenty of fuel in the tank, too. Former President Donald Trump’s political committees brought in $82 million during the first half of 2021 and have $102 million in the bank, according to federal filings made public Saturday evening. The figures, shared first with POLITICO, underscore the profound reach of Trump’s fundraising power. While the former president is out of office and has been deplatformed on social media sites, he maintains a massive online donor network that he could lean on should he wage a 2024 comeback bid. The numbers are extraordinary, historically speaking. The scenario is virtually unprecedented: Never in history has a former president banked nine figures’ worth of donations to power a political operation. Over the first six months of the year, Trump’s political groups whipped up supporters with baseless claims of election fraud to pull in cash on a scale similar to the GOP’s official political arms, the Republican National Committee and the party’s House and Senate campaign committees. The numbers are undoubtedly troubling for liberals listening in from the left side of the aisle, as worries continue to grow about whether or not the Democrats have any shot at holding onto a majority in the House in 15 months’ time.
