Trump on Reparations: “I Don’t See it Happening.” Why the Dems Will Actually Have to Earn Their Votes

TheHill.com reports that

President Trump on Monday said he doesn’t believe the federal government will pursue reparations for descendants of slaves, an idea that has gained traction among some Democrats.

“I don’t see it happening,” Trump said in an exclusive interview with The Hill.

The House Judiciary Committee held the first hearing on the issue in a decade earlier this month, and a handful of Democratic presidential candidates seeking to challenge Trump in 2020 have broached the idea.

“I think it’s a very unusual thing,” Trump said of the possibility of reparations. “You have a lot of — it’s been a very interesting debate. I don’t see it happening, no.”

The House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held the hearing “to examine, through open and constructive discourse, the legacy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, its continuing impact on the community and the path to restorative justice.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell threw cold water on the idea of reparations earlier this month.

“I don’t think reparations for something that happened 150 years ago for whom none us currently living are responsible is a good idea,” McConnell said. “We’ve tried to deal with our original sin of slavery by fighting a civil war, by passing landmark civil rights legislation. We elected an African American president.” 

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) reintroduced legislation this year initially crafted by former Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) that calls for a study on reparations.

In the 2020 Democratic primary, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Sen. Bernie Sanders  (I-Vt.) and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) were among those who voiced support for a bill commissioning a study on reparations.

The Democrats are in favor of reparations for Black Americans for they same reason that they want open borders and to give illegals the right to vote: they are BUYING VOTES!

Since its inception, the #Blexit Movement has encouraged a lot of black Americans to #breakaway from the Democratic Party and become Republicans.

With Black Unemployment at a record low and more and more black Americans walking away from the Democratic Party, it has opened a lot of eyes to the fact that the Democratic Party has done absolutely nothing for black America.

I’ll take that back. They have done something.

They have encouraged them since President Johnson’s implementation of “The Great Society” to let “Uncle Sugar” take care of them, assuring them that as long as they continued to vote Democrats into public office that they would be “taken care of”.

It has been those black Americans who have broken out of the cycle of government-assisted poverty who have come to realize that the Democratic Party’s “benevolence” was, in fact, a boat anchor, tied to them to keep them from reaching the shores of self-reliance.

By the way, a bunch of successful young black Americans met with President Trump several months ago and, according to them, they love the guy.

And, they didn’t feel “used” at all.

They felt empowered.

Trump is winning over a voting bloc that the Democrats have always counted on to vote for their candidate in the Presidential Election.

Believe it or not, Fauxahontas (Elizabeth Warren) wants to give reparations to gay couples whom she believes deserve the same break that heterosexual married couples get on their income tax.

I’m not kidding.

I was going to ask where the Democrats believe that all this money for all of this free stuff and “reparations” is coming from.

However, that’s easy: Hard Working Average Americans.

In the Democrats’ desperation to pander to special interest groups and to divide us as a nation, it is very evident that their main political strategy is simply to buy votes however they can.

Let’s face it.

They cannot compete with what President Trump’s Economic Policy which has brought Unemployment down to the almost nonexistent rate of 3.8%, including setting records for both Black and Hispanic employment in America.

Nor can they attack him in matters of Foreign Policy, especially after the head of NATO told Congress that foreign leaders respect President Trump and his leadership abilities.

This calling for an “agenda of reparations” by the Democrats is an act of desperation, just as their unacceptance of the Mueller Report is.

They are both nothing but political grandstanding designed to pander to those whom they perceive to be their base: Far Left Liberals and special interest groups.

There is no need to hand out free money to the groups being pandered to by the Democrats for “grievances” which happened in the 1700s and 1800s.

None of this current generation nor the previous one of these groups carry any physical or mental scars from the grievances in question.

In fact, with black unemployment at an all time low, Donald Trump has done more to provide meaningful non-government jobs for black Americans than his predecessor ever did.

Democrats like AOC, Nancy Pelosi, and the other members of Congress who are pushing for all of these programs desperately are fighting to keep black Americans on the Democrat Plantation, while being very aware that the President has gained a lot of support among the 12.5% of America’s population who happen to be black.

The Democrats’ desperation is palpable.

Their “agenda of reparations”, to be funded by American Taxpayers, is unconscionable.

And, just another example of the Democratic Party’s favorite economic strategy: over-taxing average Americans to pay off special interest groups.

Not this time.

AOC Panders to Crowd at Sharpton-Sponsored Conference Promising an “Agenda of Reparations”

GettyImages-1140613792-1024x657

Reparations, I believe, are talked about for political reasons, trying to cater for the purpose of getting votes. If Congress was serious about reparations – in ’93 and ’94 the Democrats controlled the House, the Senate and the White House, and not one single Republican vote was needed for reparations. – J.C. Watts

FoxNews.com reports that

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., called Friday for “examining and pursuing an agenda of reparations” as part of a lengthy list of proposals delivered before an Al Sharpton-sponsored conference in New York — touting a controversial policy that’s increasingly gained support from the 2020 field of Democratic presidential candidates.

Speaking about her cornerstone Green New Deal, which would entail a massive government-led overhaul of the economy and U.S. energy usage, the freshman Democrat also said the plan does not “shy away from bold conversations of health care, housing and education as human rights, of living wages and dignified work, of policy that isn’t just drafted with the next election in mind but also with the next generation in mind.”

She told the crowd at the National Action Network convention that such a generational attitude was the “underpinning” of a list of policies that include health care for all, free public college — and reparations to black Americans for slavery.

“That is the moral political and economic underpinning of making bold investments and dignified jobs because that is the necessary plan to fix the pipes in Flint [Michigan] and clean the air in the South Bronx, and create unionized energy jobs for transitioning workers in Appalachia and West Virginia, for single-payer health care and Medicare-for-all and tuition-free public colleges and universities to prepare our nation for the future, and for the end of mass incarceration, the war on drugs, examining and pursuing an agenda of reparations and fixing the opioid crisis too,” she said.

2020 presidential candidates including Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro have all come out in favor of some form of reparations for black Americans.

The embrace of such a controversial proposal indicates a shift further to the left by the Democratic Party. Former President Barack Obama and 2016 Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., previously came out against reparations.

Sanders, at the same event Ocasio-Cortez was attending, said Friday that if he were president and Congress passed a bill creating a commission to study the issue, he would sign it, according to The Hill. Both former Rep. Beto O’Rourke and former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper also said they would sign the bill.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, introducing the bill in January, said that “the impact of slavery and its vestiges continues to affect African Americans and indeed all Americans in communities throughout our nation.”

She explained that the measure — formally known as the ‘Commission to Study and Develop Reparations Proposals for African Americans Act’ — would examine the “institution of slavery in the colonies and the United States from 1619 to the present, and further recommend appropriate remedies.”

The bill currently has more than 30 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives and, last month, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she would support the legislation.

Those who have come out in favor of reparations have so far been vague about what exactly it is they would support. Harris suggested to The Grio that this could include a generic tax credit to families making under $100,000. Warren was prepared to go a step further, though, and told reporters in February that reparations for Native Americans should be “part of the conversation” as well.

By the way, word is that AOC pulled a Hillary impersonation by adopting a Southern Black accent during her appearance. However, she did not proclaim that she was “no ways ‘tard.”

I was going to ask where this idiot believes that all this money for all of this free stuff and “reparations” is coming from.

UN Calls for “Reparations”, Sends Tweet Telling Americans to “Stop Trump” at Voting Booth.

trump-foreign-policySince Barack Hussein Obama became the President of the United States of America, he has been bound and determined to make America into just another nation, assigning American Exceptionalism to the trash heap of  history. His pure ignorance to America’s place in the world is overwhelming. Only by standing up to the thug nations represented at the UN, will America be respected, and left alone, as the sovereign nation that we are.

Obama’s bowing and scraping, like a leader of a country who occupied a subservient position to nations filled with barbarians, who would slit every American’s throat, if given the chance, is an stunning example of this naivete and downright ignorance.

Ever since Barack Hussein Obama took office in January of 2009, the sovereignty of the Shining City Upon a Hill has been in peril.

Barack Hussein Obama, beginning with his World Apology Tour, has proclaimed to the world that America is just another nation, as subservient to the whims of the United Nations, as any third world nation.

After terrorists murdered four Americans at the US Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya, Obama stepped in front of the General Assembly of United Nations, like a little school boy, repeating the lie which he and his staff concocted, that it was some little unwatched Youtube Video that caused the Muslims’ actions over there.

There is a reason that the Headquarters of the United Nations is in New York City in New York State in the United States of America.

We are not their servants. In fact, the United Nations would not exist if not for America.

Obama’s acquiescence to the United Nations has emboldened that body to believe that THEY are our, forgive the term, “Masters”.

A few days ago , it was reported  per Breitbart.com, that

A United Nations-affiliated group in Geneva is calling for the U.S. to give African Americans reparations for the country’s history of slavery, according to a recent report by the group.

The group’s statement was part of a study by the United Nations’ Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, a group that reports to the international organization’s High Commissioner on Human Rights, The Washington Post reported.

The group of experts, made up of leading human rights lawyers from around the world, presented its findings about the link between the U.S.’s history of slavery and present injustices, such as the recent police shootings of African Americans to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday.

“In particular, the legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent,” the report stated. “Contemporary police killings and the trauma that they create are reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching.”

The panel said that the police shootings of African Americans during the past year have caused a “human rights crisis” that is in urgent need of addressing and compared the recent shootings to the acts of lynchings by white supremacists in the late 1800s.

The group said the reparations could come in a variety of forms, such as “a formal apology, health initiatives, educational opportunities, … psychological rehabilitation, technology transfer and financial support, and debt cancellation.”

Ricardo A. Sunga, one of the panel members who was asked about the presidential race in the United States, talked about “hate speech … xenophobia (and) Afrophobia” prevalent in the race, but did not call out any candidates by name. 

The reparations, however, are unlikely to occur since the group’s recommendations are non-binding and unlikely to influence policy in the United States.

Cheeky, huh?

And, now, this morning, according to Politico.com,

The United Nations News Centre — the official U.N. news service — tweeted, then quickly pulled, a post that called for “8 million Americans abroad” to “stop Trump.”

The tweet, published at 9:14 p.m. ET on Thursday, urged American expats to share a voter registration tool on the website of the activist organization Avaaz that states, “U.S. Citizens abroad could defeat Trump … if they voted.”

The Web page, titled “The October surprise that will end Trump,” allows users to sign up for help registering to vote in the Nov. 8 presidential election and encourages them enlist their friends as well.

“At a time when Trump is trying to divide us, we could help defeat him if we all share this page with EVERYONE. Let’s reach every US voter abroad,” it reads.

The tweet was deleted within 20 minutes, without explanation.

Ari Gaitanis, chief of the U.N. News Services Section, which oversees the twitter account, said it was a mistake.

“That tweet did not originate from the UN News Centre and this was the reason for it being taken down,” he told POLITICO. “We’re looking into its provenance.”

Uh huh. Someone is CYA-in’, if you know what I mean. And, I believe that you do.

The United Nations is scared of America becoming a strong nation again.

Under the poorly-managed administration and completely inept “leadership” of President Barack Hussein Obama, the United Nations has been able to treat America like a cowered canine.

While no President can control the actions of other countries come in their own affairs, the position of President of the United States has not historically been referred to as the Leader of the Free World for no reason.

That position has historically been the Vanguard in the fight against despotism and tyranny.

Unfortunately, for lovers of freedom the world over, instead of being the leader that the world and America itself needed, Barack Hussein Obama has instead been an example of the Peter Principle.

He has risen to his level of incompetence.

Barack Hussein Obama’s disdain for all of the core values of our country, such as American Exceptionalism, American Rugged Individualism, American Achievement, the American Family Unit, and the Faith of Our Fathers, has been shown through his words and actions, over and over again, through this long National Nightmare, through which we have been suffering, hoping fervently that the light at the end of the tunnel, is not an oncoming train…or a Nuclear Explosion.

The Good News is…

As a Constitutional Republic, those of us, the overwhelming majority of Americans who still believe in the concept of right and wrong, maintain the Rights which our Founding Fathers bestowed upon us, to speak our mind…regardless of what the current Presidential Administration, the Main Stream Media,the rest of the mindless Obama-worshiping sycophants who worship at the dual altars of popular culture and political correctness, and America’s enemies within the United Nations, want us to do.

We shall not be assimilated into the Hive-Mind.

We shall not continue Obama’s Globalist Quest to turn America into “just another country”, who answers to the United Nations and the tyrannical despots contained within it.

That still, small voice which resides within each one of us, has led Americans to do great things, in service to their country and the concept of American Freedom, as personified by Lady Liberty, standing so majestically in New York Harbor.

God gave us this nation, ensconced in the concept of “Liberty and Justice for all”.

By His Grace, we will keep it.

As President Ronald Wilson Reagan, himself, said,

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

America is standing on a precipice, looking down into a abyss.

This November, do not push her in by wasting your vote or voting for Hillary Clinton.

Until He Comes,
