Another black Republican gives heartfelt message on Fox –
Not sure why the black members of this Panel on CNN did backflips to put p with Paris’s Uncle Tomming. I can only guess it is because of their utter destruction of former CNN commentator Jeffrey Lord, and the network forcing them to dial it down.
Verbally smacking around Chumph supporters has become a Team Sport. Not sure what function Auntie Omarosa hoped to serve at the National Association of Black Journalist Convention – or even the motivation behind inviting her. But things got hot, rather quickly.
An angry spat at the 2017 National Association of Black Journalists Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana, on Friday led to the dissolution of a panel when White House aide Omarosa Manigault declined to answer any questions about the Trump administration.
Broadcast journalist Ed Gordon, who moderated the panel, stepped in to salvage the situation when a heated discussion began over the African-American community and police brutality. However, his discussion with Manigault, one of the few African-Americans holding a senior position in the Trump administration, turned into a verbal spar when she was questioned about the president’s stance on the issues, reports said. The panel was titled, “Black and Blue: Raising Our Sons, Protecting Our Communities.”
Manigault, the director of communications for the White House’s Office of Public Liaison, refused to answer questions about her role as an African American in the White House. And she ended up receiving of jeers and boos from the crowd…
During the Republican National Convention in July 2016, Manigault announced she was given the position of Director of African-American Outreach for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
She has held no reservations about being a vocal Trump supporter. “Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump. It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, who ever disagreed, who ever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe,” she said in an interview with Frontline in 2016. She has even called herself a “Trumplican.”
As one of the most disposable members of the Chumph Cartel, you know this day had to come for Uncle Ben Carson…The Journey from House Negro to pariah.
Is there a traitor in the Trump administration? Yes, say some hard-right conservatives — and it’s Ben Carson
Ben Carson, Donald Trump’s secretary of housing and urban development (a position that Carson initially claimed to be unqualified to hold), recently said he was “glad that Trump is drawing all the fire so I can get stuff done.” While few people may have noticed when he wandered off and got stuck in an elevator a couple of months ago, Carson shouldn’t be so quick to assume that he isn’t being watched amid the chaos that has consumed the Trump administration.
At one point during the Republican primary campaign, Trump implied his then rival might be a child molester. Then he appointed Carson to his Cabinet, and now the retired surgeon has come under increased criticism from conservative Republicans, who complain he has been too slow to roll back Obama-era policies on housing discrimination. The Conservative Review blasted Carson last week for failing to combat what senior editor Daniel Horowitz described as “Obama’s war on the suburbs.”
The regulation that Republicans want Carson to roll back is known as the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule, finalized by Obama’s former HUD Secretary Julián Castro in 2015. This rule requires 1,200 cities and counties, which get $3 billion of annual community development block grants from the agency, to examine their local housing patterns for racial bias and to design a plan to address any measurable bias.Carson recently told the Washington Examiner that he plans to “reinterpret” the controversial fair housing rule — enraging conservatives. His explanation to the Examiner has only served to further upset right-wingers who have fought against the promulgation of the rule for years. Carson pointed to a recent 5-4 Supreme Court ruling that upheld the validity of disparate-impact claims under the Fair Housing Act, a notion conservatives have long opposed.
“I probably am not going to mess with something the Supreme Court has weighed in on,” Carson told the Examiner. “In terms of interpreting what it means — that’s where the concentration is going to be.”
Carson did not provide any detail how exactly the rule will be “interpreted,” but his statement came just days after nearly 20 congressional Republicans asked the secretary to repeal the rule entirely. These GOP lawmakers complained that the rule “would extend reach of the federal government beyond its authority and could take away state and local governments’ ability to make local zoning decisions.”
HUD is easily one of the most vital federal government agencies, not just for people of color or the poor who need housing assistance in the form of direct subsidies, but for many Americans who want to own a home. The Obama administration didn’t pass any new housing laws. Still, conservatives saw that administration’s attempts to enforce the Fair Housing Act as radical overreach. Republicans like Sen. Mike Lee of Utah and Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona bemoaned the 2015 rule as an unconstitutional federal power grab over local zoning. Frustrated by what they perceived as the Trump administration’s sluggish response, they led a group of Republicans in petitioning Carson to reconsider the rule.
“If any aspect of a community’s housing and demographic patterns fails to meet HUD bureaucrats’ expansive definition of ‘fair housing,’ the local government must submit a plan to reorganize the community’s housing practices according to the preferences and priorities of the bureaucrats,” said Lee, who has been on a years-long crusade against the anti-discrimination effort, in a Senate floor speech last year.“This rule can’t be reinterpreted or rehabilitated. Rescission is the only sensible solution,” the conservative National Review recently argued. A Republican member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights also wrote a letter to Carson calling for the rescission of the rule.
In his own 2015 editorial, Carson also blasted HUD’s rule as a “government-engineered attempt to legislate racial equality.” He has not addressed the issue, however, since taking control of HUD. (Lynne Patton, a Trump family party planner turned HUD administrator, did please some Republicans when she acceptedWestchester County, New York’s analysis of its racial disparities –which had been rejected 10 times under the Obama administration.)
Some conservatives now view Carson as a traitor.
“With all the talk of Russian collaboration, I think we have finally found the smoking gun,” wrote Horowitz at the Conservative Review. “This administration is adopting the Stalinist social engineering of local communities. If this administration cannot categorically eliminate such an odious program overnight, it is perhaps a bigger scandal than anything Robert Mueller could ever uncover.”
Jesse Lee Peterson is owned by Sean Hannity. If you look at the financials and oard of his corporation – Sean is the boss. Indeed, almost every penny funding the front operation comes from Faux News and Hannity. He is Hannity’s favorite Porch Negro to trot out an reaffirm Hannity’s racist diatribes.
The only question I have is why anyone in the MSM would publish his ignorant trash.
What the boy better be hoping, is the black community never develops the will to take out the Lawn Jockeys and other assorted trash.
Jesse Lee Peterson slams acts of political unity after shooting at Alexandria baseball field.
A right-wing radio host dismissed the prayers Democrats offered after last week’s shooting during a Republican baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.
“Why would you want to pray with the children of Satan?” Jesse Lee Peterson said in comments posted online by Right Wing Watch. “They serve a different God than you. That’s reality.”
Last week’s attack left six people injured, including two lawmakers. One of those wounded, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), remains hospitalized after multiple surgeries and was upgraded from “critical” to “serious” condition over the weekend.
The gunman died.
The violence led to numerous displays of unity among lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, including shared prayers. But Peterson said Republicans shouldn’t join them.
“What are the Democrats praying for? The Democrats are not of God,” Peterson said. “All of a sudden when Scalise gets shot, when they hear about the shooting, all the children of Satan are going to come together and pray? Please!”
In the past, Peterson, who is black, has said he would like to “take all black people back to the South and put them on the plantation so they would understand the ethic of working.” He also said that giving women the right to vote was “one of the greatest mistakes America made.” His self-titled radio show has featured interviews with other divisive right-wing figures, including Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke and Rafael Cruz, the father of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).
Over the years, Peterson has also been a guest on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News as well as Hannity’s radio program, where he once claimed that there was no such thing as racism. Hannity, it should be noted, disputed that.
Deppidy Lawn Jockey, having just see 8 of his employees get indicted…And a shitstorm of lawsuits and perhaps criminal charges come his way…
Decided it isn’t a good idea to join the son-to-be-impeached and indicted Putin’s Bitch administration.
Not to mention the fact that the Deppidy also went to the Kremlin to kiss Putin’s ring, painting yet another target on his back.
“Boy! You in a heap o’ trouble!”
Clarke notified Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly on Friday of his decision, according to reports.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, an African-American who became a staunch critic of the Black Lives Matter movement and a supporter of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, has withdrawn his acceptance for a job as assistant secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. newspapers reported on Saturday.
Clarke notified Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly on Friday of his decision, Craig Peterson, an adviser to Clarke, said in a statement, according to the Washington Post and other newspapers.
“Sheriff Clarke is 100 percent committed to the success of President Trump and believes his skills could be better utilized to promote the president’s agenda in a more aggressive role,” the newspapers quoted Peterson as saying.
Neither the agency nor Clarke’s office immediately responded to requests for comment.
Clarke’s decision comes a month after he told radio station WISN in Milwaukee that he would leave his post as sheriff in June to join the Department of Homeland Security.
At the time, a spokeswoman for the agency said no announcement on Clarke had been made.
President Trump and Clarke met in Wisconsin on Tuesday and discussed other roles in which Clarke could help advance Trump’s agenda, the Washington Post reported, citing Peterson.
The Department of Homeland Security – created after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on New York and the Pentagon – includes agencies that handle customs, border protection and immigration, the Coast Guard, the Transportation Security Administration and the Secret Service.
Clarke has come under fire for comments he has made about the Black Lives Matter movement, which grew out of protests over a number of police killings of unarmed black men in various parts of the United States.
Clarke has labeled members of the movement “subhuman creeps” and called for its eradication.
Clarke spoke in support of Trump at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last July.
Critics have faulted Clarke for his management of a Milwaukee County jail where a mentally ill man died in 2016 of dehydration. An inquest jury recommended that seven employees of the jail be criminally charged.
Democratic Senator Kamala Harris of California called Clarke’s appointment “a disgrace.”
Lawn Jockey of the week and future Orange Jumpsuit wearer…Lynne Patton
She claims a Yale Degree, and never attended the school and a Law Degree she was never awarded.
Yet another full time Chumph incompetent, unqualified, criminal and liar, this time selected solely on the basis of her race.
She’s arranged tournaments at Trump golf courses, served as the liaison to the Trump family during his presidential campaign, and even arranged Eric Trump’s wedding.
Now President Trump has appointed longtime loyalist Lynne Patton — who has zero housing experience and claims a law degree the school says she never earned — to run the office that oversees federal housing programs in New York.
Patton was appointed Wednesday to head up the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Region II, which includes New York and New Jersey, where she’ll oversee distribution of billions of taxpayer dollars.
Patton’s tight relationship with the Trump clan dates back to 2009, when she began serving as the family’s “event planner.”
“Responsible for organizing, executing and assisting with upscale events and celebrity golf tournaments,” her LinkedIn profile says. “Handle celebrity talent acquisition for various marketing projects, philanthropic events and golf tournaments.”
From 2011 through January, she also helped run the Eric Trump Foundation, a charity that’s now under investigation by state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
She also claims on her LinkedIn page to have obtained a juris doctorate degree in 2000 from Quinnipiac University School of Law in Connecticut. Next to the J.D. notation is written (N/A) without explanation.
On Thursday school registrar Jim Benson said Patton attended for two semesters but did not graduate.
She also listed Yale University but HUD officials couldn’t explain why that was there. Patton, who begins her Region II job July 5, did not return calls seeking comment.
As head of the biggest HUD regional office in the U.S., Patton will oversee distribution of billions in cash to public housing authorities — including NYCHA — as well as tens of thousands of rental vouchers and block grants that fund housing inspections and senior citizen programs.
Patton is one of the handful of African Americans within Trump’s inner circle and a passionate Trump promoter. Last year she made a video entitled “I’m proof Donald Trump isn’t a bigot.”
Trump first placed her as a White House liaison at HUD in February. While there, she’s fired off multiple flamethrowing tweets for him and his family…
Patton has also had to defend her role as former vice president at Eric Trump’s foundation. Forbes last week reported the charity steered money to the Trump empire by holding events at Trump golf courses while she was there. She said nothing untoward happened at the charity.
Note – She is now under investigation by the FBI for fraud at that charity.
