Black people don’t exist! Yup – He says it right about the 8:50 mark.
Trump had to get a discount rate on this clown.
Another classic Trump supporter here…This one a member of the extreme right wing so called “Sovereign Citizens”
An investigation into credit card fraud by a self-described “sovereign citizen” in Detroit took a horrifying turn when investigators executing a warrant at his home discovered child pornography, evidence of sex trafficking — and one of his multiple “wives” chained to a stripper pole.
Police called it a “house of horrors.”
According to Click On Detroit, Ryon Lenell Travis, 32, an unemployed father of seven, is being held after police found video of his 5-year-old daughter being sexually assaulted, along with more child pornography, on his phone.
The investigation began as a simple matter of ID theft, with Travis accused of charging more than $50,000 to a credit card belonging to a local business.
But when authorities searched his home, what they found was horrific, including the child abuse images and multiple “wives” — with one chained to a stripper pole in the living room.
“There was a third woman chained at the neck to the stripper pole, sitting in the living room,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Woodward said while filing charges. “She had a chain around her neck with a padlock on the chain and then a longer chain that connected her to the stripper pole.”
The 25-year-old woman told investigators Travis sold her and the other women online for sex.
“She said that the defendant posted advertisements online and in chat rooms that he had four girls for sale,” said Woodward. “And she said that if she or the other women refused to dance or perform sex acts, the defendant would be violent with them, and that he would hit them with a closed fist, kick them or push them down.”
The child sexual abuse charges stem from photographs that showed a 5-year-old girl engaged in sexual acts with an adult male — with Travis admitting that the girl is his daughter.
At his arraignment, Travis asked the charges against him be dropped, asserting his rights as a sovereign citizen unbound by the law.
“My point is that all laws are commercial in nature and I am a natural born human of the American land,” he stated in court. “Since all laws are commercial in nature and I choose not to do business with this court, I ask that this case be dismissed.”
The court was not amenable to his request and he was held without bond.
Apparently conditions n the Republican Party have caused an exodus of even die hard black conservatives from the Republican National Committee. Not all are leaving the Party, but there does seem to be a movement to jump the rotted scow of a Republican ship, before it sinks. Although none will say it, it appears the siren call to racists by the Party’s leading candidate, Trump, has become so toxic as to penetrate even black conservatives notoriously thick cast iron stomachs.
The RNC, which has made broadening its base a priority, just lost its head of black outreach.
The Republican National Committee is losing the person who leads the GOP’s outreach to black communities, as first reported by NBC News and confirmed by The Huffington Post.
Kristal Quarker-Hartsfield, the national director of African-American Initiatives at the RNC, is leaving the organization to work for Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) as his director of intergovernmental affairs. Her last day is set to be Friday, and she is the second black top staffer to depart the RNC this month.
Quarker-Hartsfield joins several other staffers of color who have departed the RNC recently. Orlando Watson, communications director for black media, left earlier this month. Tara Wall and Raffi Williams, son of Fox News political analyst Juan Williams, both left their press positions at the RNC late last year.
RNC Chair Reince Priebus has said that expanding the party and reaching out to groups of people who don’t usually vote Republican are priorities. After the 2012 elections, he famously released an autopsy report concluding that the GOP needed to broaden its base if it wanted to survive a changing country.
“The RNC cannot and will not write off any demographic or community or region of this country,” Priebus said at the time.
But the GOP’s presidential front-runner, Donald Trump, threatens to upend much of that work with his incendiary comments about women, immigrants, protesters andMuslims that appall many members of his own party.
Asked about her decision to depart, Quarker-Hartsfield told HuffPost, “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the RNC. It has been an honor to work for Chairman Priebus during an exciting time in politics. It has been exciting to have a front row seat to a national Republican movement to maintain the House and win back the Senate. Chairman Priebus is an innovative leader who empowers his team, and serves my Party as a humble servant leader.”
Williams denied that he left the RNC because of Trump.
“I left because I was just ready for something new. They were good to me, they treated me very well and I have no complaints about the place,” he told HuffPost. “I think it’s a part of the natural cycle of the RNC. People come and go.”
A recent USA Today poll showed that if Trump faces off against Democrat Hillary Clinton in November, voters of color would overwhelmingly reject the business mogul. Black voters were the most pronounced, backing Clinton 67 percent of the time.
Are black Trump supporters as low information (PC for Stupid) as their white counterparts?
Uncle Ben will impress the guests wearing that tux and bow tie in the White House… And pouring the wine after setting the tables.
Dr. Ben Carson, who endorsed Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy on Friday, appears less than enthusiastic about that decision. And the real reason the unsuccessful GOP presidential hopeful endorsed his former rival could be a violation of federal law.
Carson told the conservative online site NewsMax TV on Monday that he backed Trump based on a practical calculus.
“I didn’t see a path for [John] Kasich, who I like, or for [Marco] Rubio, who I like. As far as [Ted] Cruz is concerned, I don’t think he’s gonna be able to draw independents and Democrats unless has has some kind of miraculous change… Is there another scenario that I would have preferred? Yes. But that scenario isn’t available.” Pressed to clarify, Carson said he meant he’d prefer to have backed one of the other candidates.
Carson then said that Trump had promised him a role in his administration, “certainly in an advisory capacity.” Asked by NewsMax’s Steve Malzberg whether this meant a cabinet position, Carson declined to “reveal any details about it right now, because all of this is still very liquid.”
Federal law expressly prohibits candidates from directly or indirectly promising “the appointment of any person to any public or private position or employment, for the purpose of procuring support in his candidacy.” The penalty for violations could include fines or a year in jail — two years if the violation was willful.
Follow the money, Ben…Is uhhhhh Armstrong going to be your advisory?
After announcing the end of his campaign for the White House, Dr. Ben Carson announced that he will serve as the national chairman for My Faith Votes (MFV). MFV focuses on getting out the Christian vote in November.
Addressing an audience at CPAC, Carson observed, “Even though I might be leaving the campaign trail, you know there’s a lot of people who love me. They just won’t vote for me. … But it’s okay. It’s not a problem. I will still continue to be heavily involved in trying to save our nation.”
Carson later explained his decision to end his campaign. He said he looked at the delegate count and realized it simply wasn’t going to happen; that being the case, he didn’t want to interfere with the political process. Carson stopped short of endorsing another Republican candidate but defended Donald Trump, saying that Mitt Romney’s attack on Trump would destroy the unity within the party and help the Democrats. “People who think Donald Trump would be the worst thing that ever happened … you make a really big mistake by trying to thwart the will of the people.”
My Faith Votes announced that it will launch a national media campaign that will gain speed heading into the November presidential election. MFV President Sealy Yates released a statement saying that more than 25 million Christians didn’t even bother to vote in 2012. Carson agreed to take on the position on Wednesday, the same day he announced he was suspending his campaign.
