Wealthy Chicago Suburb Votes to Use Legal Marijuana Profits to Fund Slavery Reparations

How does this make sense?

You didn’t have anything to do with slavery. Neither did your parents. Neither did their parents. And yet, because we live in a hyper-liberal age, some Democrats feel that Americans living today should pay reparations for slavery.

If that’s not wild, then what is? Why should people living today have to suffer for sins committed in the past? Where’s the logic? Where’s the rationale? Here’s the deal with an Illinois suburb, via Daily Wire:

Evanston, Illinois, a wealthy suburb of Chicago and home to Northwestern University, recently voted to allow legal cannabis dispensaries to open within the city limits, but instead of collecting on the profits, Evanston will put the money cannabis dispensaries eventually pay the city into a fund that will disperse reparations to the city’s black residents.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Evanston is hoping the measure will halt gentrification and keep the city “diverse,” though the city council did not go so far as to admit that the program could, essentially, pay minority residents to stay within the city limits. Instead, the city council claims that it merely wants to rectify past wrongs using a new, controversial source of city revenue.

A supporter of the measure notes, “The tax on marijuana will ‘be invested in the community it unfairly policed and damaged.’ The plan stems from the idea that African Americans should disproportionately benefit from the sale of cannabis … because they have been disproportionately affected by the policing of marijuana — both nationally and locally.

2020 Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren isn’t the smartest person in a room full of kindergartners. The facts are clear: she is a complete anti-American, know-nothing.

Here’s just the latest example, via Breitbart:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Thursday delivered a speech at Clark Atlanta University, and declared that it is time to adopt Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s (D-TX) legislation on reparations.

Warren delivered a speech at the historically black university Thursday evening and stressed the need to pass Lee’s reparations legislation, which “establishes the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans.”

Let’s be clear: It’s time for our government to have a full-blown national conversation about reparations. We must be honest about our history, and do what’s right so that our nation can begin to heal. #AtlantaWithWarren

How can you be forced to apologize for something you had nothing to do with? Are all Democrats really this stunningly ignorant or is it just the one presidential candidate, in particular?

Don’t answer that. We all know the answer.

Check out this video featuring Marianne Williamson making white Americans apologize to blacks for slavery.

It’s cult-like and disturbing.

Howard Stern Says Donald Trump Secretly ‘Loves’ Mike Bloomberg: ‘He Knows How Strong The Guy Is’

Published

on

Radio shock jock Howard Stern should probably stick to the same old tired oversexualized schtick he used to discuss on his program because his attempts at doing political commentary leave a whole lot to be desired, as you’ll see for yourself when you read his comments about President Trump and Michael Bloomberg. According to Stern, Trump, who has been feuding with the president during a very heated Democratic Party presidential primary, secretly loves Bloomberg. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “I’ve talked to Donald a million times privately about Bloomberg. We both agree that he was one of the best f—ing mayors on the planet,” Stern said Monday on his SiriusXM radio show. “Donald loves Bloomberg,” he added. “That’s why he doesn’t want him running.” Trump has escalated his attacks on Bloomberg in recent weeks, mocking his height and debate performance as the Democrat pours hundreds of millions of dollars into his campaign. But Stern asserted it’s all a farce. “He knows how strong the guy is,” Stern said. “He loves him. We all love him. Donald would even say, ‘He’s better than I am.'” Stern went on to say that if Bloomberg cinched the nomination it would result in a “hell of a debate” between the two billionaires, going so far as to say that people who voted for Trump would vote for Bloomberg. As of right now, Bloomberg is polling in third place, though he is not participating in the primaries due to be held before Super Tuesday.

President Trump Rips Into CNN’s Jim Acosta After Being Accused Of Lying: ‘Worst Record In The History Of Broadcasting’

Published

President Trump, the world’s foremost expert in counterpunching against the leftist mainstream media, recently came out with fists of fury flying — in a proverbial sense — against CNN’s Jim Acosta after the reporter accused him of lying. During an afternoon press conference during his time in India, Acosta asked President Trump if he would make a pledge not to accept foreign assistance in the 2020 election, to which the president stated, “I want no help from any country.” Here’s how the rest of the incident played out via The Washington Examiner: “I haven’t been given help from any country. And if you see what CNN, your wonderful network said, I guess they apologized in a way for — didn’t they apologize for saying certain things that weren’t true?” the president inquired of Acosta, referring to CNN’s coverage of Russian interference in the 2016 election. “Mr. President, I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes, if you don’t mind me saying,” Acosta said to Trump, who fired back at the anchor’s history of reporting. “Your record is so bad, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. You probably have the worst record in the history of broadcasting,” Trump said. The president and CNN have a track record of hostility with one another, something that is completely understandable given the fact that CNN and other left-wing networks have dedicated their air time to pushing narratives that aren’t fully factual in a bid to undermine the current administration. Trump, unlike previous presidents, isn’t afraid to dish out what he gets first, which is one reason so many people love him. The question now is when will Acosta learn to stop being so hostile and actually do his job?
