Liberals HOWLING Over What Trump Just Did to All Black Americans

It went largely unnoticed amidst all the other nonsense in the news this past week, but the numbers are in, and Trump has set a new record.

And not just any record. It’s an achievement that should silence nearly all his critics and leave Obama feeling more ashamed than ever. That is, if liberals had any sense whatsoever.

The record in question has to do with unemployment rates among African-Americans.

Under Trump’s governance, black unemployments rates in America fell to an ALL-TIME LOW of just 6.8 percent in December.

The previous record was 7.4 percent in 2000.

Now, this is quite amazing considering that liberals are intent on painting Trump as a bigot whose economic policies are geared solely toward enriching the “white elite.”

The truth, of course, is that Trump is working to improve America’s economy for ALL its citizens, regardless of race.

The evidence is in the fact that all communities seem to be doing better under Trump.

Don Jr. Has a Word or Two to Say About That Pro-Oprah Tweet by NBC

Donald Trump Jr. took NBC to task Monday over a tweet in which the network appeared to endorse a 2020 presidential run from media mogul and famed television host Oprah Winfrey.

Winfrey received widespread praise for her victory speech as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille award Sunday during the Golden Globes.

Acclaim for her speech was so intense that many speculated she should challenge Donald Trump and run for president in 2020.

Twitter users took to the platform to encourage her to run, but the most notable tweet referring to her potential future presidency came from a surprising source — the official account of the National Broadcasting Company.

“Nothing but respect for OUR future president,” NBC tweeted, while attaching a GIF of Winfrey.

NBC Oprah tweet

As noted by The Hill, the tweet seemed to be a reference to a viral meme in which people would caption various photos with the sentence, “Nothing but respect for MY president.”

The blowback from Twitter users was swift, with the network receiving almost universal criticism for what was seen as politically biased tweet.

Some of the most intense criticism came from Trump Jr., who noted that the tweet was just more evidence of the mainstream media’s bias against his father, the president. Trump Jr. went on to indicate that Americans are completely unable to trust the media anymore.

“In case anyone had any doubts about where the media stands this should take care of it. The bias against @realDonaldTrump is now so obvious they have simply given up hiding it,” he wrote. “Can you trust anything they say at this point?”

“Americans see the truth in job #s & in their wallets!

Other users expressed similar sentiments.

Following the criticism, NBC deleted the tweet.

On Monday, the network revealed that the post was done in response to a joke made by Golden Globes host Seth Meyers during the awards ceremony.

“In 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Jokes about how he was unqualified to be president,” Meyers said.

“Some have said that night convinced him to run,” he continued. “So if that’s true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president! You do not have what it takes!”

Trump Jr. took note of the fact that NBC had deleted the tweet, but he wanted to make sure his followers could still see the original post.

“Strange. Seems that @nbc took down there tweet. In case you missed it here it is,” he wrote.

As The Western Journal reported, Winfrey used much of her speech to address the flurry of sexual misconduct scandals that have recently rocked the entertainment industry.

She was also one of many performers to made subtle jabs at President Donald Trump and give a nod to progressive talking points.

Winfrey spoke of “a culture broken by beautifully powerful men.” But she concluded with a bit of optimism, noting that “a new day … is on the horizon.”

According to The Washington Post, Winfrey’s words sparked a controversy, with some saying she should challenge Trump in 2020, while others said she did not have the experience necessary to run for the highest elected office in the land.

Trump to End Immigration Protection for 250,000 Central Americans

The Trump administration announced plans Monday to end protections dating back to 2001, which have allowed at least 260,000 immigrants from El Salvador to stay in the U.S. with temporary legal status, The Wall Street Journal reported.

A statement from the Department of Homeland Security noted that protections will not end until September 2019 in order “to allow for an orderly transition.”

The Temporary Protected Status program was introduced by Congress in 1990.

It was intended to offer temporary relief for migrants whose countries were notably affected by natural disasters or war, The Washington Post reported.

Many Salvadorans were granted the ability to apply for TPS in 2001, after two earthquakes wrecked much of the Central American country.

DHS took steps to verify that conditions in El Salvador had changed since the initiative was first introduced 16 years ago.

“The decision to terminate TPS for El Salvador was made after a review of the disaster-related conditions upon which the country’s original designation was based and an assessment of whether those originating conditions continue to exist as required by statute,” the department’s statement read.

Despite the fact that it was a temporary program, extending TPS for Salvadorans for over a decade has created a situation where many immigrants have put down roots, purchased homes and thought they were on their way to earning permanent legal status.

“I consider this my country,” one such Salvadoran, Oscar Cortez, told The Post.

The Maryland resident works as a plumber and owns a townhouse outside of Washington, D.C.

“Behind us there are children and wives and nephews and nieces and mothers and fathers who depend on us,” he said. “It doesn’t affect one person. It affects a ton of people.”

DHS did note, however, that the 2019 deadline allows Congress 18 months to potentially offer an alternative legal status.

However, the vast number of immigration-related issues — including the 2017 repeal of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program — as well as other TPS recipients from other countries, could make that a challenging feet.

The Trump administration had previously announced the end of TPS for Haitians and Nicaraguans, but Salvadorans remain the largest group who benefit from the program, according to The Journal.

“The Trump Administration once again has reneged on a long-held American tradition and has added 200,000 Salvadoran families to their long list of undocumented immigrants it wishes to deport,” said Angelica Salas, executive director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights.

However, according to Nolo.com, a legal advice website, Temporary Protected Status was just that — temporary. As such, the site explained, the program does not provide a path to a green card or citizenship on its own.

“Even if you were to live and work legally in the United States as a TPS beneficiary for many years, there is no route to permanent residence (i.e., a green card) that will follow simply from a grant of TPS,” the website says.

Nolo did point out that it is possible to acquire permanent legal status from another event, like marriage to a U.S. citizen or sponsorship from an employer.

States Passing ‘English Only’ Laws…Do You Support This?

Liberals have long been trying to get Americans to change their ways of doing things in order to accommodate foreigners.

The problem is that this is America, and we shouldn’t have to change the way we do things because other people are coming into our country. After all, they’re flocking to our country for a reason. Maybe we should take this as a hint and keep up what we’ve already been doing since clearly it’s working.

According to liberals, we should be changing the way our schools operate. Even though English is the official language of the United States of America, the left is dead set on having our public schools teach in different languages.

Many states are now mandating that English be the only language that is taught in schools. The map below shows which states are enforcing this law:

Is it really unfair to ask people who migrate to America to learn our language?

It seems logical enough to me that when you decide to move to another country, you should expect to learn their language in order to communicate with citizens of that country.

Education.findlaw.com reported:

While the federal government does not recognize an official language, roughly 30 states have passed laws designating English as the official language. A few states have gone further by requiring their public schools to teach only in English.

The federal government sets education standards and goals through laws such as the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, and it occasionally uses the threat of reduced funding to compel states to comply. However, education policy and curriculum is set at the state and local level.

Only a few states have passed English-only education laws, although there have been failed efforts in other states. For example, in 1998, California voters enacted a proposition that requires the state’s schools to teach only in English and to stop providing bilingual education programs, subject to certain exceptions. Although test scores of English-learning students rose after the proposition was passed, a report submitted to the California Department of Education after five years of review stated that there was no conclusive proof that English-only instruction was the cause of the rising scores. In 2014, California’s legislature passed a law to end the state’s experiment with English-only instruction (schedule to take effect in 2017).

There are other states in USA that have passed English-only educations laws. These states include Arizona back in the year 2000 and Massachusetts back in 2002. Voters in Colorado turned down the chance at an English-based instruction initiative that was proposed in 2006, just as Oregon voters did in 2008.

There are always going to flaws with our educational system in the United States, just as there are with any country’s educational system. The best that we can do is implement laws and regulations that will better help our students learn. The only way we can help our students learn is to create uniform learning standards and practices. Mandating that the only primary language used to teach students is English would help integrate our schools and make a more fluid learning structure within our country. What are your thoughts on English Only Laws?

Trump’s EPA Chief Will Cut Liberal Agency’s Staff by 50% in First Term

Donald Trump got into office by promising to drain the swamp, and one of the swampiest parts of our nation’s capital is the liberal favorite known as the Environmental Protection Agency.

Thankfully, the president appointed the right person for the job – Administrator Scott Pruitt, who has taken a scythe rather than a scalpel to the bureaucratic monolith.

While it was clear to observers that Pruitt was making some headway, we didn’t realize just how much progress he was making until the EPA administrator announced this week that he planned to cut the agency’s staff by almost 50 percent in the president’s first term.

“The EPA Tuesday provided to Secrets its first year staff results which show that the agency is below levels not seen since former President Reagan’s administration,” the Washington Examiner reported.

“And if just those slated to retire by early 2021 leave, Administrator Scott Pruitt and his team will have reduced a staff of nearly 15,000, to below 8,000, or a reduction of 47 percent.”

For Pruitt, that’s all part of the job.

“We’re proud to report that we’re reducing the size of government, protecting taxpayer dollars and staying true to our core mission of protecting the environment,” Pruitt said in a statement.

The EPA currently has 14,162 employees, which is the first time it’s been below the 14,440 level since The Gipper was in office.

Those are some pretty impressive numbers, but it gets even better. Given that 47 percent of EPA employees can retire with full benefits in five years or less, it could be very possible that almost half of current employees would be gone by 2021.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Pruitt is offering some massive buyouts and retirement benefits packages to get some of the bureaucrats to retire.

“We’re happy to be at Reagan-level employment numbers and the future retirements shows a preview of how low we could get during this administration,” one EPA official said.

“It would be fair to say anywhere from 25 to 47 percent of EPA could retire during this administration.”

Conservatives should be very happy, too. The EPA has always been one of the most overreaching agencies in the federal firmament, particularly when a Democrat is president.

The agency definitely made hay when the liberal sun was shining under the Obama administration, costing American jobs and doing fun stuff like blowing up ponds, all because of insane overregulation.

The best way to protect against this kind of thing is to drain the swamp to the point where it can’t be easily reassembled by any future Democrat presidents (perish the thought, of course).

From the looks of things, Pruitt is well on the way to that goal.

Share this on Facebook and Twitter if you support Scott Pruitt’s agenda.

How do you think the Trump administration can continue to drain the swamp?

BREAKING! Trump Just Declared MEDICAID WORK REQUIREMENT!

With the demise of Obamacare almost assured, the Trump Administration is now setting its sights on another federally funded healthcare entity “Medicaid.”

The administration has just announced it’s considering allowing states to impose job requirements in order to be eligible for receiving free taxpayer-funded health care, in short, some Medicaid individual might need to “work” in order to access healthcare benefits.

This major policy shift could affect millions of low-income individuals. Although it’s not exactly clear how the new policy might work, what is being purposed by the administration is that it would allow certain states to test the concept of requiring some Medicaid recipients to either participate in some form of community activities, perhaps volunteering or some form of Jobs training program as a precondition for receiving government healthcare insurance.

Moreover, able-bodied individuals could have to “work” to be eligible.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMMS) issued guidance making it easier for states to design and propose test programs that implement such requirements.

Seema Verma head of the CMMS sees these new guidelines by the administration as a positive step suggesting that community involvement can make a positive difference in people’s lives and in their health.

Medicaid is a federal-state collaboration covering about one in five individuals or roughly about 70 million people, making it the largest federally funded government insurance program in the country.

The program was expanded under Obama allowing more low-income adults; many with low skilled jobs that don’t provide any healthcare insurance.

However, states can seek federal waivers to test new ideas to better the program within their individual states. Currently, Medicaid doesn’t require able-bodied individuals to hold a job, or any type of community outreach programs that might benefit them in either seeking employment doing some sort of volunteer work within their communities.

As predicted any type of federal incentive in helping individuals to become more self-sufficient will surely face strong political opposition from the left who see this as an attack against the poor.

The administration announced that currently 10-states have applied for waivers regarding the work and or the community involvement program, they are: Arizona, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Utah and Wisconsin…almost all conservative states.

Do you believe that able-bodied individuals before receiving any government assistance should be required to work, volunteer or be within some type of work-related or education program?

BREAKING! Trump Just Destroyed Immigrant “BIRTH HOTELS”! DEPORT THEM!

It would appear that America is no longer the unwitting victim of unscrupulous Chinese nationals along with dishonest Chinese aliens using our immigration laws too fraudulently claim “citizenship.”

The Trump Administration is keeping yet another promise to end the human trafficking and smuggling of illegal pregnant aliens “criminally” attempting to give birth within America.

A day after the president launched the new enforcement program ICE agents made the largest immigration bust in nearly a decade, raiding in one day 20-“birth hotels” in California.

For those not familiar with this immigration scam, Chinese nationals use hotels as waiting rooms for the expectant mother-to-be, thus the name “birth hotels.”

The illegal scam if successful atomically insures citizenship for the child, in most situations a child born in the United States or one of its territories will automatically receive American citizenship.

The concept is similar to drug smuggling or human trafficking, in that the expectant mother pays as much as $100,000 to get into one of these hotels.

The recent raid by Homeland Security agents was reported by NBC News who were at the scene when agents swept into the luxury Carlyle Hotel, in Irvine, California. The pregnant woman including new moms allegedly paid anywhere from $40,000 to $80,000 for the privilege of having their child born in the United States

One of the women captured in the raid lamented to NBC News; “I am doing this for the education of the next generation.”

The raids took place in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties.

Claude Arnold, special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations for Los Angeles, told NBC; “It’s not necessarily illegal to come here to have the baby, but if you lie about your reasons for coming here, that’s visa fraud.”

Remarkably the selling of America seemed to be conducted in broad daylight which is perhaps indicative of were the raids took place in progressive California. Chao Chen and Dong Li ran the Carlyle site and used social media to drum up business, promoting the benefits of children born in America, citing on their website; “13 years of free education, low-cost college financial aid, less pollution, and a path for the entire family to emigrate when the child becomes an adult.”

MLK’s Niece: “Donald Trump Is Not a Racist…There Are Countries in Africa That Are Indeed Hellholes”

Dr. Martin Luther King’s niece Alveda King defended President Donald Trump on Saturday.

Democrats and the liberal media were outraged this week after it was reported that President Trump questioned senators on why the United States should continue to bring in migrants from bad nations.

Democrats and their media immediately began calling the president a racist over his factual remarks.

On Saturday Dr. Alveda King defended the president.

Alveda King: “President Trump is not a racist and calling him a racist is outrageous and unjust. There are countries in Africa that are indeed hellholes.”

Port-Au-Prince, Haiti: A City of Millions but Still Without a Sewer System

There are 987,000 people living in Port-Au-Prince and 2.6 million living in the ‘metropolitan’ area. The city does not have a sewer system.

Each night workers descend into manholes and remove raw human waste in buckets.

Via NPR:

Port-au-Prince is about the size of Chicago. But it doesn’t have a sewer system. It’s one of the largest cities in the world without one.

That’s a big problem, but never more so than during a time of cholera.

Since cholera was introduced into Haiti 18 months ago – most likely by United Nations peacekeeping troops from Nepal, where the disease is endemic – more than a half-million people have gotten sick and at least 7,050 have died.

Public health authorities say cholera will stay in the environment for a long time, because Haiti has the worst sanitation in this hemisphere.

It’s hard for Americans to imagine what this means.

The cumulative sewage of 3 million people flows through open ditches. It mixes with ubiquitous piles of garbage. Each night, an all-but-invisible army of workers called bayakou descend into man-sized holes with buckets to remove human waste from septic pits and latrines, then dump it into the canals that cut through the city.

Haitian citizens walk through the flooded streets of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Nov. 6, after Hurricane Tomas hit the country. Marines with Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 774 flew CH-46E Sea Knight helicopters over Haitian soil to assess the aftermath of the hurricane in preparation for tentative disaster relief efforts to the region in support of the government of Haiti, MINUSTAH and USAID. Marines and sailors embarked aboard USS Iwo Jima attached to Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force concluded humanitarian operations in Paramaribo, Suriname, Nov. 1, for Haiti relief efforts.

Ben Carson’s Statement On The NFL Anthem Protests Just Went Viral!

Former presidential candidate and current Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson has given a very unique perspective on the NFL protests that have been making their way around the country. It seems like he knows about this kind of thing and how to go bout talking about the issues currently at hand. He sent out a Facebook post that has since gone viral.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell came out with a statement calling the President’s words “divisive” and counter-productive. But now Ben Carson has come out with his own thoughts on the issues.

But Carson gave his own perspective during a Facebook post Sunday. He talked about how NFL Sundays used to “represent a time of fun, games and unity” and how it has now been plagued by protests during the national anthem.

“Here we are at another NFL Sunday,” Carson wrote. “That used to represent a time of fun, games and unity. I hope we can return to that situation soon.”

“That is a wonderful message that we should not allow to be distorted by anyone,” Carson wrote, talking about the unity that takes place during the national anthem.

These players do not realize that what they are doing is totally disrespectful and unacceptable. Either that or they do realize it and they simply do not care. Either way, it needs to stop.

He then talked about the youth players that took a knee.

“Last week I saw a story about pre-adolescent players being drawn into the ‘take a knee’ protests,” Carson wrote. “Does anyone honestly believe that encouraging even our youth to believe they are victims of our society will actually help us come together?”

Carson knows what he is talking about.
