Trump Tariffs against China hurt some his most loyal supporters. the American farmers.
Now he has a solution to fix the problem. The Trump administration announced Tuesday that it will provide $12 Billion dollars in emergency relief. This money is to ease the pain a little while Trump continues his not so popular trade war. This not going well with all farmers. Some are asking that he does more than just give a quick fix or a pay out. They want him to fix the market for long term results.
The Trump administration stated that this is a temporary term.
" This is a short term solution that will give President Trump and his administration time to work on long term trade deals," said Agriculture Department Secretary Sonny Perdue.
This could have a dramatic effect on the 2020 election. It is no secret that in 2016, Trump gained most of his support from the South and the mid west. Farmers are more likely to be found in those regions.
Now that he has sort of disappointed them, it will be interesting to see if they stand behind them in 2020.
Iran has sent another threat to the U.S. By now we are use to this but I will speak on it anyway.
Iranian President Hasaan Rohani sent out a message to Trump, warning him about the mother of all of all wars. This warning was sent because of aggressive policies against Tehran.
Here is the exact quote, “war with Iran is the mother of all wars”, but did not rule out peace between the two countries.
It's funny, the irony of it all is just too much.
The fact that Trump won the 2016 election because of certain people wanted to get rid of illegal immigrants, who were supposedly stealing Americans jobs. Now there is a cry for help from the farmers of America, that at one point used undocumented workers for cheap labor. Yes, these idiots forgot that the same people that they want out of their country, are the same people that they pay less than minimum wage to work on their farms. Oh, this is just getting weird. So now that Trump has shown he is actually gonna get tough on illegal immigrants and that he is breaking up families, a lot of undocumented workers are running scared. They are quitting their farm jobs and leaving. That means the farmers have fewer workers. Hmmm, that would also mean they will have to pay more for new
workers. I guess you can say, they are reaping what they sowed.
Baltimore- Two Baltimore detectives have been sentenced to seven years in prison. Detectives Hendrix and Ward were apart of the GUN TRACE TASK FORCE, where they joined other officers who were committing robberies for a number of years.
Hendrix and Ward apologized for the actions on Friday.
"I know my actions," said Ward, pausing to wipe away tears, "made the trust issues with the citizens even further than they were before."
"We would target large groups of males," Hendrix testified earlier this year, speaking about the task force's street tactics. "The understanding was the more people, you know, the more likely you are to run into someone who actually has something illegal on their person."
It looks as if they have been giving a shorter sentencing than what the guidelines called for. Instead of receiving 11 to 14 years, the two were given 7 years in prison which is much different than what Thomas Allers and Sgt. Jenkins received which was 15 years.
The reason for the difference in the sentencing is due to the fact that Allers and Jenkins were supervisors, so the government sought and obtained much more prison time for them. Another key factor in the different sentencing is that the Ward and Hendrix were not involved in any robberies before joining the Task Force with Sgt. Jenkins and being seen as two officers that were in a complicated situation in which they had succumbed to peer pressure.
This is gonna sound crazy. Just think about the way Trump just set free this woman who was supposed to be serving life behind bars. For all of the crazy things that Trump says, he has demonstrated that he has some good qualities as well. If he continues to make moves like this, Trump just may win over more Black people than anybody expected by the next election, just in time to win again.
If he can stay off of twitter and stop harassing NFL players that are protesting the injustices that are happening in America, he would really be able to turn the page on Democrats and put them in an awkward position. It is already being said that Trump has gained 12 points from the Black community due to his friendship with Kanye West.
I'm not saying he will win over all of Black America, that would be literally impossible. What I am saying is this, in politics, you have to learn to play the numbers game. If Trump won the 2016 election with no support from the Black and Latino communities than we can imagine what would happen if won over 12 percent more than before. As crazy as it sounds, it just may happen.
For years Chicago has been the city to point to whenever anyone wanted to make a statement about Black on Black crime and gun violence. We may finally be seeing some changes as Chicago has reached drop in gin violence over the past 15 months.
Chicago has had 52 fewer shootings and 229 fewer murders through the end of May, according to MSN news.
This is a 21% drop off when compared to the first five months of 2017.
Chicago has been under much scrutiny and rightfully so by President Trump. The murder rate in Chicago has been rivaled only by warzones like what we saw in Iraq in the early 2000's.
Some gangsters maybe proud of it, but destroying a city is nothing to be proud of and damn sure isn't something anybody should want to represent.
Hopefully, we will continue to see a decrease in homicides and the city will no longer need the title of Chiraq.
Stephen Paddock the gunman that killed 58 people in Las Vegas, may have been a right wing, conspiracy theorist. It seems to be theme among these serial killers and mass murderers. They seem to think that government is out to do them harm, so they go out and shoot people to make a statement.
In a statement, a woman said she sat next to Stephen Paddock and overheard him acknowledging the anniversary of the Ruby Ridge and Waco Siege. Both of these incidents just so happen to be anti-government movements.
Again, this just seems to be the theme, time and time again.
It's always the same story.
According to sources, a man claims that days before the Las Vegas shooting, Stephen Paddock went on a anti-government rant. The rant was about Fema Camps and how the government were coming to kick down doors and confiscate guns.
We all have heard this kind of rant before. It's sad that the people who are supposedly trying to wake people up to the corruption of the government, are the very people that are turning violent.
As the media continues to mock Kanye and debate over his slavery was a choice statement, what has gone unnoticed is the fact that Kanye has impacted the Black community in a way. He has sparked the debate about mental slavery and loyalty to the democratic party. Far right extremist " Alex Jones" has doubled down making videos on his website praising Kanye for his support for Trump.
President Trump himself has thanked Kanye, saying that he has taking his approval among African Americans from 11% to 22%.
As crazy as it may sound, Trump and Kanye may have more of an impact than what most of us have imagined. I don't know how true it is that Kanye bumped up Trumps approval rating, I do know this, Kanye has caused an uproar and most importantky, he has caused Black people to think twice about the democratic party.
I hate to say I told you so but... I told you so !!
CNN reported that a tape has leaked from 1984. Yeah I know right SMH.
Apparently in 1984 Donald Trump created a fictional character named John Barron.
Barron, was supposed a representative of Trump. He used the fake alias as a way to call break business deals and speak highly of Trump.
Now here is the kicker, CNN has the tape with Trump calling Forbes representative Jon Greenberg, posing as John Barron.
The U.S strike on Syrian targets was supposedly in response to chemical attacks carried out by the Syrian government. I wasn't there so I can't say what happened.
What I can say is this, I smell B.S !
Remember Trump recently said concerning Syria, "We are leaving very soon."
If that is the case, then what the hell is the strikes about ?
Well, it is interesting that the strikes have taken place after the Saudi supported Jihadist were kicked out of Douma . (The Spark News Paper)
So hear we go again with the lies. This sounds very much like the Iraq war.
President Trump even announced that the mission was accomplished, the same way George W. Bush did.
We know damn well the U.S is not concerned about the people in Syria. This is powers that be trying to protect their own interests again.
I just hope that the people don't fall for the okee doke again, as they did with Osama and Saddam.
People should keep in mind that Osama and Saddam were set up as boogey men.
"The US will not pull its troops out of Syria until Washington's goals are accomplished, Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, said "
To be continued ...
Rosanne Barr has been an open Trump supporter for some time now. She has the right to support who she wants, however, she recently tweeted out something interesting about Trump. She claims that Trump has rescued many children that are victims of child molestation.
I just did a podcast criticizing Rosanne for being a crazy nut job conspiracy theorist.
The Epoch Times however, is giving this story credibility. Apparently apart of this story is true.
According to data, approximately 825 children have been rescued since Donald Trump has been in office.
Last year, President Trump signed an executive order titled “Enforcing Federal Law with Respect to Transnational Criminal Organizations and Preventing International Trafficking.” President Trump directed the government to “identify, interdict, disrupt, and dismantle the transnational criminal organizations that engage in human trafficking.”
“President Trump has rescued so many children held in bondage to pimps all over this world. Hundreds each month,” - Rosanne
If this is true, I will have to take back what I said about Rosanne being a nut case.
If I'm wrong about this, than I have to say this is the first time that I am happy to be wrong something.
The Parkland shooting on 02-14-2018 was horrible enough. Nobody wants to hear or even have to think of children being shot dead in schools.
The controversy and conspiracy of what happened that day has taken away from the fact that this country has a problem with school shootings.
The right-wingers have not stopped for a day attacking the Parkland survivors and accusing them of being crisis actors.
David Hogg has been the center of attention from the very day of the shooting.
People have questioned everything, from his statements about what happened on that day to if was even a student at Marjory Stoneman.
CBS may have turned the fire up by not fully explaining a statement by Hogg which he says he grabbed his camera and biked to the school when the shooting started.
After reviewing all of this, it appears that the problem was that CBS included a very confusing quote without context. Hogg was on campus during the shooting and returned several hours later to interview people across the street. The original story remains below, in strikethrough. I am sorry for the error and have updated the post accordingly.- SNOPES
The conspiracy theories increased recently due to this video below.
It's about damn time we get some news coming out of Chicago.
No city in America has been as notorious for crime and murder as the Windy City of Chicago. It seemed as if every time I heard something about Chicago it was a murder and most of it was gang-related.
According to CNN, the shootings have take a dip for thirteen straight months.
Chicago has often been the topic of scrutiny when it comes to black on black crime.
The alt-right and racists in general, would often point to Chicago as a way to justify their racists views towards minorities.
You would often hear them say, "We don't want blacks in our neighborhoods because we don't want to become another Chicago."
The news of a dip in violence is good but the Chicago still has a long way to go.
Of course it will not change over night as the city itself is full of corrupt police officers and politicians that have plagued the city for years.
Chicago was so bad in 2016, President Trump threatened bring martial law into the streets.
Donald Trump becoming more unstable is the last thing anybody wants to hear.
Hell, if you ask me, it's almost impossible for Trump to be more unstable than what he already is.
According to the Washington Post (FakeNews) (As Trump Would say),
President Trump is getting rid of the people that have kept him under control.
Yeah, under control. I know most of us thought he was out of control but it seems as if Trump has now ditched the people who sort of kept him in line.
Some people are predicting that Trump is gonna become even more irrational now .
He has surrounded himself with people that are more " Yes men " than actual intellects. This means Trump will rely more on his instincts than his advisers.
"The president is replacing aides who have tended toward caution and consensus with figures far more likely to encourage his more rash instincts and execute upon them, and he is frequently soliciting advice from loyalists outside the government." - The Washington Post.
Can you imagine how this is will effect the Trump administration ?
If this is the beginning of Trump acting on his own it will only be a matter of time before he digs a hole so deep for himself, he will not be able to get out.
Twitter Reacts to David Hogg and his armbands which reminds some people of Hitler.
Conspiracy theorists are losing it because this is actually feeding into their theories that Liberals are Hitler like in mind and that government wants to take guns away just like Hitler did.
Apparently, Hogg deleted his armband pic after being called out by James Woods.
The NRA has been an ally to the Republican party for years. You can always count on the majority of NRA members to vote Republican in elections. Now the NRA is losing it's many sponsors in the aftermath of the Parkland Shooting in Florida.
Sponsors are finding it hard to stand by the NRA due to the fact that more people are demanding stricter gun laws, more intense background checks and some Americans are looking at the NRA as a main target. Sponsors are dropping off of the NRA to avoid the coming onslaught of protests that will soon come.
As if we didn't see this coming...
Alex Jones is already jumping on this story about the Parkdale High School Shooting being a possible false flag. To be fair to Alex Jones, he is being more careful with his words this time around. Some may remember 2012 after the Sandy Hook shooting took place, Alex Jones jumped on his radio show and called the shooting a hoax and was later forced to apologize. The same thing happened with pizza gate.
Again, this time around, Jones is being so careful not to saying anything that will land him in hot water.
Yesterday he went on the air and pretty much prepped what is probably gonna be his next rant about the government trying to take our guns from us. Yes, he went there again. This is what the right wingers always do ever time there is an incident of this sort, they get paranoid about liberals taking their gun rights.
Pentagon is considering nuclear attacks as a response to cyber attacks.
The New York Times reported that the Defense Department's 2018 Nuclear Posture Review, details whether to retaliate against a cyber attack aimed at the United States by way of nuclear strikes against the culprit.
This comes in response to years of cyber hacks and attacks as well as rumors of attacks by North Korea and others.
This is being pushed as a strategy to scare U.S enemies that have the ability to attack the United States through cyber warfare.
The New York states that a cyber attack does not mean there will automatically be a nuclear response.
In extreme conditions of a cyber attack, then this strategy may come into play.
A new poll states that voters believe Trump will be cleared of the Russia probe.
The counsel is to be held by Robert Mueller and in the political world there is a lot of speculation. Some people are just waiting for Trump to say something incriminating that will get him jammed up.
I'm surprised at this poll. Even more I'm surprised Trump still has people that believe he can keep his mouth shut long enough or even answer questions about Russia with saying spilling the beans.
This has more to do with the American people being gullible than it does with what Donald Trump actually has to say.
The Justice Department is launching a new investigation into the Clinton Foundation to figure out whether they were involved in pay for play politics and other illegal activities that Hillary Clinton may have been involved in when was the Secretary of State.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Agents from Arkansas were collecting information on the Clinton foundation for more than a year.
Top Trump Justice Department Officials promise that law enforcement will continue the investigations that the Obama administration did not dig deep enough into.
Nearly a year after Barrack Obama has left the White House, we still have many right wingers who not let him go. Some are so obsessed with him that they still believe that he is behind the scenes running things.
They act as if he is the Powers that be or the leader of the elites that are holding the American people down.
In all seriousness, I am not exaggerating at all when I tell you that some have stated that Obama is the Anti-Christ and he would never leave the White House and even after a year of being removed they still believe he is some how connected to powers that be.
Some have gone as far as to say that the powers that be are working with Obama behind the scenes to assassinate Trump so Obama can reclaim the White House and become a dictator.
These are some of the things that you actually read on right wing sites.
It's amazing to say the least. On the other hand it makes sense. When you take in consideration that for the past 8 years, right wing news and websites have repeatedly called Obama the Anti-Christ and a Muslim terrorist, it would no doubt lead to a Trump Presidency.
As a matter of fact, Trump fits more of the Anti-Christ model than Obama does with constant threatening of North Korea and his idea that he should rename the capital of Jerusalam. He is doing more to stir up World War 3 in one year than any President before him.
But of course, among right wingers, none of it is Trump's fault. After all, according to them, Obama is still the President.
In “I know that he will again serve his country as a fierce guardian of the law and model of integrity,” said President Trump
Some people believed President Trump would allow his hand picked FBI director , Christopher Wray, the ability to work unimpeded.
FBI Director Christopher Wray has promised the F.B.I.’s work would be based on the “facts, the law and the impartial pursuit of justice. Period.”
“He’s got to be the top cover for the agency,” Former FBI Official James F. Yacone said .
Yacone would also go on to say Mr. Wray has a difficult job and has to some how avoid being politicized.
Needless to say Christopher Wray is walking on tight rope. With all of the talk about Russia and the investigation that is going on, it's only a matter of time before he rubs Trump the wrong way. Even though President Trump hand picked Christopher Wray to replace James Comey, it is not out of the realm of possibility that Wray could find himself on the hot seat as well. Trump has no loyalty to anyone, not even his own hand picked staff.
Washington insiders are saying that Mr. Wray has done everything he can not to have a public dispute with Trump even as Trump continues to go after the FBI.
But at some point, Mr. Wray will have to defend the bureau.
It's only logical that FBI agents want to know that Christopher Wray is on their side.
Much to the displeasure of a lot of racists, another confederate statue has been removed. The trend continues to make some unhappy because they feel for some reason that this part of White American history should be saved and honored.
As a Black Man, I would have to wonder what is so honorable about a statue of confederate soldier that favored slavery ?
To say that Black people are using the race card, as so many say, yet they turn around and honor the confederate army that favored slavery and wished to keep slavery in tact, that has to be an absolute contradiction.
As far as I'm concerned, everyone of these statues should be destroyed.
We all know that President Trump likes to talk tough. We are use to Trump coming across as a bully but now the shoe is on the other foot.
FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was grilled and challenged by the House intelligence committee Republicans who believe that he has been unfair against Trump.
Republicans are arguing that the Obama administration was soft on Hillary Clinton during the handling of the Clinton probe and are calling for a second special counsel to investigate Clinton.
Republicans are also arguing that Muellers team is on a witch hunt, concerning the investigation into the Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential election.
“Andrew McCabe cuts across every facet of every investigation in 2016 that your viewers are interested in from Secretary [Hillary] Clinton’s emails to the investigation into the Trump campaign,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) told Fox News on Tuesday.
Omarosa Manigault Newman, and former "Apprentice" contestant, resigned Tuesday evening.
It's rumored that she has been wanting to step down since the Charllotesville incident.
Most people are blaming her exist on President Trump's support of Roy Moore.
Newman was influential in the Presidential 2016 campaign of then Candidate Trump.
Some may remember her for being involved in the Apprentice Show.
People can only speculate as to why it took a full year to distance herself from the most controversial President of the U.S in recent memory.
Donald Trump just took another loss as Roy Moore lost the Senate seat to Doug Jones. I'm sure Newman could not just sit there and stand beside Trump as he supports Roy Moore, a pedophile and hypocrite.
Although Newman is not set to leave until January 2018, this is just another loss in the Trump administration.
I personally believe that she as a Black Woman had no business siding with Trump for any reason. I hope if anything, she has learned a lesson from this.
You can not change the mind of a bigot.
