Mitch McConnell: We paid for ‘sin of slavery’ by electing Obama

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s remarks over the last week have been making headlines, but the latest may be the most controversial.

When asked about reparations for slavery on the eve of a House hearing on the issue, McConnell said reparations “for something that happened 150 years ago, for whom none of us currently living are responsible,” were not a good idea. Besides, he suggested acts, such as electing Barack Obama president, could be considered a form of compensation.

“We tried to deal with our original sin of slavery by fighting a Civil War, by passing landmark civil rights legislation, elected an African American president,” McConnell said. “I don’t think we should be trying to figure out how to compensate for it. First of all, it would be hard to figure out whom to compensate.”

The backlash, as it often happens with McConnell, came swiftly.

Kentucky state Rep. Charles Booker (D-43rd District) wrote on Twitter that the “shameful” remarks showed McConnell doesn’t care about black people or Louisville’s West End, and that Kentucky needs to stand against McConnell during his reelection bid.

Kevin Cosby, president of Simmons College in Louisville and senior pastor at St. Stephen Church in the West End, called the comment “the most ignorant, historically inaccurate statement ever uttered by a ranking senator.”

McConnell was Obama’s chief adversary during his presidency. He once quipped that his top goal was to make Obama a one-term president and famously blocked Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court during the final year of his presidency.

The criticism of McConnell came as the senator was taking heat for comments he made Monday about the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund.

After emotional testimony last week by former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart in support of reauthorizing the fund to help pay for medical and economic losses for victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and their families, McConnell said in a Fox News interview that he didn’t know why Stewart was “all bent out of shape” and that “many things in Congress happen at the last minute.”

Stewart jumped on those comments, appearing on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” later Monday and accusing the senator of only supporting the 9/11 community when it’s convenient and using it “as a political pawn to get other things you want.”

McConnell, during his Monday interview on Fox News, added that the Senate “will address this problem appropriately” after the House takes up the bill before the August work period. A spokesman for McConnell on Wednesday said the Senate will take action after the House acts.

McConnell, in the meantime, appeared on Fox News on Thursday night and Monday morning to repeatedly discuss socialism (“none of these socialist schemes, the ‘Green New Deal,’ ‘Medicare for All,’ are going to pass the Senate”), Iran (“The sanctions are really hurting. The president made the right decision backing out of the nuclear deal because it wasn’t much of a deal”) and other issues.

He deflected questions Thursday night about President Donald Trump’s ABC News interview in which he said he would accept damaging information about a political opponent from a foreign government ahead of an election. Trump has since walked back those remarks.

Donald Trump Should Retire From The Position Of President Of The United States Of America

The 45th President of The United States, Donald John Trump, has endured hardship after hardship over these past four years. He began in Presidential exploratory committee back in the year 2000, and a year after that we had the onslaught of The September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attacks. In the wake of these attacks, Donald J. Trump has continued building up his business Brand, The Trump Brand, making casinos and Hotels, and a litany of branded products in an effort to keep his money lined with billions of dollars.

Donald J. Trump appears to be perfect to the naked eye, but he is far from perfect.

President Trump has a history of sexually assaulting women.

-From Fox News

Trump himself attributes his ability to grope and harass to his wealth and power, but at the end of the day sexual assault is sexual assault. Although a video of him apologizing surfaced (which is party followers willingly accepted), he still has too much rich history assault women.

There are court records which indicate that the current sitting President raped his first wife. A quick Google search using the keywords ‘Donald Trump rape’ will open up to any human using the internet the vast amount of sexual assault allegations sewn into the Trump era.

Yet, above all else, The President willingly calls every sexual assault allegation false. So I ask you, the reader, has Donald Trump ever sexually assaulted anyone? If not, are all of these women lying?

Are all of these women lying?

It may be very well that Donald Trump doesn’t care. He is a billionaire, and to loosely quote The President, people with wealth can essentially do whatever they want.

I am A Veteran Of The United States Army, so I hope this message reaches who it needs to reach:

S E X U A L

H A R A S S M E N T

A S S A U L T

R E S P O N S E

P R E V E N T I O N

The sitting President has committed one too many sexual assaults upon women of the world, and his bluffing hand had been pulled from underneath him, so he used his wealth and power to coerce individuals into believing that he is perfect, when in fact, he is nothing more than just a man who has created a wealthy empire with the help of his father. He is not perfect, with over 10 women (including his first wife) arguing that he sexually assaulted them, The United States Of America is in deeper trouble than just a couple young rioters or looters taking overpriced and underpriced merchandise.

Sexual assault is a real issue in the United States. When a woman speaks up, we have to listen, or else what is race and ethnicity? How can we turn a blind eye to the painful truths spoken to us, only to hoist the one perpetrator to the highest office of Thy Land?

At some point, rumors hit the airwaves that Russian had a Sex Tape involving women peeing on Trump. What this take turned out to be was Kanye’s Famous, a music video which depicts Donald Trump laying in bed with a slew of other wealthy individuals. I assure you, this music video is 100% real.

This Is 100% Real Footage.

It appears that America has been completely hoodwinked. Donald Trump, I shall say swiftly as I can, is a scam-artist. He has scammed the entirety of our Great Nation, The U.S., all so that he can reap the benefits of becoming President of The U.S. As A Veteran, I feel great shame in his doings, but he has shown the world exactly what some wealthy people are capable of. We do have people who strive for greatness, we do have those that give us a life we cherish, but some men love to see the world burn..

Trump doesn’t want the world to burn.

Unfortunately, Trump also cannot reconcile with himself that he has sexually assaulted many women.

So I leave you with this:

The United States Army’s S.H.A.R.P.

Tulsi Gabbard would make a great Vice Presidential candidate with Joe Biden

She has the grit to beat Donald Trump alone. She is young, she ample military and legislative experience. She is strong, Army Strong. She would be the perfect President I think, especially during such global trying times (if that is how we are to look at it still). She would be a phenomenal American Leader, and she would propel this great nation in the right direction.

But as his V.P., she would be absolutely phenomenal. She is great for the job, from my perspective.

That’s all I have to say.

Trump has a bag of junk to deal with, and in it are two articles of impeachment.

He can’t just walk all of this off. He has to fight. I assume he is doing so on Twitter, and through advertisement. Disregard that nonsense. He talks total nonsense. He always has.

That is how I view Donald Trump. His ties. His connections. Look at the celebrity, look at his downfall.

The downfall, then the come-up.

Hollywood showed it written amongst the stars, and yet we chose not to listen.

So now, we have to chose who the best candidates are among a very interesting foe. He is very deceptive, and his ties are seen. Yet, his alliances remain intact. Reluctantly, although some may say rather half-witted so, The Republicans continue to back up Trump as though there is a conspiracy against him. I do not see a conspiracy, but a carefully painted out narrative for every American to see. Like Trump himself said;

“The American Dream is Dead”.

But it isn’t.

The American Dream is well alive, and it extends well beyond our known cosmos. It extends within us to reach that far, and that is why science always triumphs. Science leads the way, scientists take charge and develop and test new science, but ultimately we as a people connect with one another to ensure that we take the right paths forward. It doesn’t just have to be victory, it can be more. Unity. Peace. Prosperity.

These are the things America needs, we NEED it. We do not need to say the possible is impossible. Believe in the American Dream.

The American Dream is in every single American, and we can build a whole new world if we really chose to.

So let us do that, let us not divide. Let us conquer to cosmos if possible, and if not, let is build and build and build this Great Nation!

Trump has to go.

Get him out.

The Resignation of General James Norman Mattis, Secretary of Defense.

In a powerful display of opposition to President Trump announcing a complete withdrawal of troops from Syria, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis submitted his letter of resignation. The letter, pictured below, highlights many facets that General Mattis enjoyed while Secretary of Defense, but the letter also plainly States to the President that he does not agree with the decision to withdraw troops from Syria, arguing that the move abandons allies on the battlefield.

Despite the resignation of General Mattis, and what appears to be a bipartisan pushback from both Republicans and Democrats, President Trump remains resilient in his decision to withdraw troops, explaining to the American People that ISIS has been defeated, and that he has been more successful than any President in modern history in defeating ISIS.

Several officials and News outlets have reported that the decision to withdraw troops was not advised by Senior military officials or The Pentagon, and that this is move done largely in part by Donald Trump.

Again, despite pushback from every angle, Trump remains resilient in downsizing the battlefields overseas, with rumors now floating the agenda that The President also intends to withdraw as many as 9,000 troops from Afghanistan as early as January.

General Mattis served four decades in The United States Marine Corps. He ends his career on a high note, putting countrymen and his allies before self. He will officially depart Trump’s Administration February 2019.

Vote: Election Day, November 6th 2018

The time of the year is upon us, where citizens across The United States of America now have the chance to exercise their rights and vote into office the candidates they believe will best represent them as Mayors, Governors, and congressional representatives in both The House and The Senate.

This Tuesday, November 6th 2018 is Election Day. Commonly referred to as The Midterms, this marks a day where we’ll essentially see either The Republican party maintain their dominance across the country, or The Democrats gaining much needed representation and control in The House or The Senate, to begin their process of amending many of the decisions Republicans have made.

For The Democrats, it is crucial that enough representatives are elected to seize control of either The House or The Senate, or both. If not, and if their campaigning fails as it did during the Presidential Election of 2016, where Donald Trump managed to seize victory over long-time Government server Hillary Clinton, The United States of America could begin to see policy implementation by The Republicans ramp up. Americans could also see the eradication of The Obama Era Healthcare Plan, an end to Birthright Citizenship, and tremendous cuts to spending on Social aid (Medicaid and Social Security).

It is important to vote.

Regardless of your party affiliation, if you feel concerned about a topic, or wish for change in your neighborhood and society, it is important to vote. As a registered Democrat, I am eager to vote, and I hope to see The Democrats pull off significant power grabs in Congress. As someone who voted in 2016 for a Democrat to be President, I’ve learned that polls are are no longer a trustworthy source to grasp voter turnout demographics. This year, the message is clear: go out and vote.

Come Tuesday, we decide the direction our country moves in. Vote for what you believe in. If Donald Trump does not sit right with you, and if you demand change right now, go out and vote. Your voice can be heard, and your power to vote can and will change the entire course of this Nation. It is of utmost importance, and I urge anyone who reads this, to go out and vote.
