Al Sharpton Just Made A Terrifying Announcement About 2020 Run for President

This must be stopped!

Published

on

Just when you thought the political arena couldn’t get any crazier, along comes Al Sharpton.

The Reverend Al Sharpton, who is one of the most visible figures of the Black Lives Matter movement, always seems to pop up to profit on a social justice agenda. Now, he’s emerged once again and this time with a statement that most conservative Americans do not want to hear.

Sharpton was in Florida last weekend where he spent his time orchestrating protests against Florida’s stand your ground laws after the death of Markeis McGlockton. McGlockton had allegedly attacked another person who killed him during the incident having feared for their life. McGlockton’s killer was not arrested since it was determined to be an act of self-defense.

Sharpton was on the scene of that protest and has since announced that he’s not ruling out a presidential run in 2020.

Here is more via The Washington Free Beacon:

“MSNBC host and civil rights activist Al Sharpton said in a new interview he won’t rule out a run for president in 2020, adding he isn’t currently mounting a bid.

“I never rule anything out,” Sharpton told BuzzFeed News.

The progressive firebrand and outspoken critic of President Donald Trump ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2004, although it was viewed as more of a stunt than a serious attempt at the White House. He also ran previously for U.S. Senate and New York mayor.

Sharpton was a strong ally of President Barack Obama and said he would never use his MSNBC platform to criticize his administration. Sharpton, who has known Trump for decades as a fellow fixture of New York, has blasted him as racist.

If Sharpton did take the plunge in 2020, he would likely join a crowded field of candidates. Among those rumored to be considering or actively considering a run include former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), Sen. Cory Booker (D., N.J.), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.), former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D.), and former Attorney General Eric Holder.

A spokesperson told BuzzFeed Sharpton’s civil rights organization, National Action Network, is focused on turning out voters for the midterms, where Democrats have their eyes on taking back at least the House of Representatives.

Sharpton has hosted MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” since 2011. The show aired weeknights until 2015, when he was pushed to just Sunday mornings.”

Sharpton, of course, has been highly critical of President Donald Trump for who knows what reason. He even went as far as to call the president a racist at the Sunday rally because Trump stumped for Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis of Florida and didn’t mention McGlockton’s name.

But the “reverend” didn’t stop there. He also criticized Pastor Darrell Scott, who back on August 2rd referred to President Trump as “the most pro-black president that we’ve had in our lifetime.” He also argued that black ministers were cowards for not bringing up McGlockton’s name when they visited the White House that day. He later added, “I won’t bow to Pharaoh, and I won’t bow to Donald Trump.”

If Sharpton were to run actually run in 2020, he would join a crowded Democratic primary. Senator Kamala Harris of California, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and former Vice President for Barack Hussein Obama, Joe Biden are just a few high-profile Democrats who have hinted to date about running for the Democratic Party presidential nomination in hopes they can take down President Trump.

This isn’t the first time Al Sharpton has run for public office. He ran for the Senate three times in the 1980s and 1990s and the presidency in 2004, obviously, he lost every time.

Here is what Al Sharpton was saying about 2020 just 2 months ago via The Hill:

“The Rev. Al Sharpton reportedly said Wednesday that President Trump is set to win reelection in 2020 because Democrats are “too tame to deal with an untamed opponent.”

Sharpton told The Guardian during a visit to the United Kingdom that Democrats likely to face off against Trump in 2020 are failing to excite opposition to the president.

He said a lack of leadership would lead to a bad result for Democrats in the midterm elections and noted that mobilization is needed for a landslide win.

“They’ve lost the ability to dramatize,” Sharpton said. “He understands spectacle and drama and they don’t.”

Sharpton said that Democrats should be deliberately “getting themselves arrested” by Immigration and Customs Enforcement over the current controversy concerning the policy of separating migrant parents from their children at the border.

“What was the Civil Rights movement if not drama? Martin Luther King was the master of street theatre,” Sharpton said. “No one would have listened if he just gave speeches.”

According to Sharpton, one candidate who “could beat Trump in a heartbeat” in 2020 is Oprah Winfrey because she is capable of speaking to poor workers. Winfrey has repeatedly said she has no interest in a White House bid.

Sharpton also said black voters would likely support former Vice President Joe Biden if he were to run for president because “he covered Obama’s back for eight years.”

Sharpton said Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) failed to get black support during his 2016 Oval Office run because he focused on class and not race. He predicted Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) could get more support from blacks because she was more attuned to the “racial dimension.”

Democrats need to get an effective message based on “rights, jobs and healthcare” instead of going after Trump for his scandals, Sharpton told The Guardian.

“You got to get the message right; then you’ll get the messenger,” he said, adding that Democrats can’t just wait for the president to self-destruct.”

More Than 90 Muslims Running For Office Across U.S. All Have The Same Thing In Common

This demographic is growing quickly

Published

on

As the 2018 midterms heat up, the choice of political candidates is becoming ever more diverse and somewhat confusing. There are a ton of Muslim candidates running for office across the United States. Most are Democrats as far as I know and support a liberal agenda. This election cycle has seen more Muslim candidates running for office than I can ever remember in my lifetime. At least one in Minnesota is pretty much a done deal and others may follow suit.

Fayaz Nawabi, who is 31 years old, is one such candidate in San Diego, California. He has never met President Trump, but he does give him credit for his running for office currently. He is running for San Diego City Council. Nawabi is pro-affordable housing, pro-environment, pro-immigrant and pro-refugee. He’s also pro-gun control. That makes him part of the blue wave of new liberal candidates that are spurred to run by Trump’s election and his conservative policies. The blue wave’s political platform is exceedingly liberal in all respects and pretty much the polar opposite of Trump’s.

In fact, Nawabi is part of a new subset of liberal politics… the blue Muslim wave. More than 90 American Muslims are running for office this time around. They are young and new to politics. They all have in common that they are long shots, stand against President Trump’s policies and are primarily Democrats. But even if they lose, they will surely run again next time around and they are gaining experience on the ground this campaign season.

Their numbers may seem relatively small, but their candidacies are a trend. This is an unprecedented rise in political numbers for the nation’s diverse Muslim community that typically has been underrepresented in American politics. Currently, there are more than 3.3 million Muslims that live in the United States. And that number is increasing every year. Right now, they hold just two of the 535 seats in Congress. Voter participation in Muslim communities is very low as well. That’s something these candidates are trying to rectify.

From The Counter Jihad Report:

“The rise of Muslim candidates coincides with the growth of the predominantly immigrant population and a partisan shift that has played out over a generation. In a 2001 Zogby poll of American Muslims, 42 percent said they voted for Republican George W. Bush in the previous year’s presidential election, while 31 percent said they voted for Democrat Al Gore. By last year, just 8 percent of voting American Muslims in a Pew poll said they voted for Trump, while 78 percent said they voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“While Clinton’s campaign never garnered broad enthusiasm from Muslim communities, Trump’s campaign — which called for the monitoring of mosques and a ban on Muslims entering the United States — delivered a jolt on election night that some American Muslims likened to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“’It woke everyone up,” Nawabi said.

“Now, Muslim candidates are running for a wide range of offices across the country, from local school boards to the U.S. Senate. Some are making their Muslim identity central to their campaigns.

“’When you put someone in a corner and they’re in survival mode, they have a tendency to come out and speak more prominently about their beliefs,” said Nawabi, who considers himself an “unapologetic Muslim” who can quote the Koran from memory and moonlights as a “freelance imam.’”

In Michigan alone, there are thirteen Muslim candidates running for office. Physician Abdul El-Sayed is hoping voters will elect him to be the first Muslim governor in the United States and he has used his religious affiliation unapologetically in his campaign ads against Republican front-runner Bill Schuette, whom Trump has endorsed. “Donald Trump and Steve Bannon would love to see a right-wing radical like Bill Schuette elected in Michigan,” reads a Facebook ad for El-Sayed, who faces a Democratic primary in August. “You know what would be sweet justice? If we elected a 33-year-old Muslim instead of Bill Schuette. Send a message and help elect the first Muslim governor in America.” Michigan is pretty much ground zero for Muslim politics these days. A fierce battle in politics is playing out there in Muslim communities.

Another candidate is Asif Mahmood, a 56-year-old pulmonologist. He would be the first Muslim insurance commissioner in California. Deedra Abboud, 45, in Arizona, or Jesse Sbaih, 42, in Nevada, could be the country’s first Muslim senator. And any one of four Muslim women running for office: Nadia Hashimi, 40, in Maryland; Sameena Mustafa, 47, in Illinois; or Fayrouz Saad, 34, and Rashida Tlaib, 41, in Michigan could be the first female Muslim in Congress.

As I said, many of these new candidates may not win this time around, but give it time. They are determined and their communities are pulling together behind them. The proof will be in the statistics, polls and voter turnouts come election day. This demographic is growing quickly and you will definitely see more Muslims in office in the next election cycle or two should this trend continue.

Sarah Breaks Down In Tears In Front Of Reporters After Bravely Making Personal Announcement

This speaks volumes about who she is.

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the pillar of professionalism and grace under fire. Since being hired for the role and having to conduct frequent press briefings to the mainstream media wolves, she’s been a perpetual target of the most ruthless attacks. The media she briefs aren’t the only ones who come at her. Late night talk show hosts and celebrities in Hollywood have also enjoyed making fun of her to no end. After a while, it would take it’s toll on anyone regardless of your strength and solid sense of self-worth.

Sarah has still has to do her job daily in the face of all of that torment and does so flawlessly. From how she holds herself, there’s no telling what she really feels inside. However, she recently lost her composure, and rightfully so, when she broke down in tears in front of reporters as she began to make a very personal announcement.

President Trump knew what he was doing when he put this incredible woman in this position. She’s the very best for the job and more importantly, has Trump’s back. There’s no question how much she genuinely respects him and the job he’s doing as our nation’s leader. Proving that, was when she began to cry while revealing what she found on his desk.

Editor’s Note: This particular story was popular at the time it originally made the news and is circulating again a second time for the important and applicable message that’s relevant today.

Western Journalism reports:

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders grew visibly emotional during a press briefing Thursday as she read from a 10-year-old letter recently sent to President Donald Trump from a Tennessee man named Joseph.

The father of an Air Force master sergeant currently on his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, Joseph wrote the letter while his son was serving in Iraq, to remind him of everything that was at stake.

“Please don’t lose sight of your purpose,” Joseph had written. “You’re the only hope and glimmer of light for the good, innocent men, women and children that you are protecting. This may be hard for you to see or understand.

“Most people know that all of you are there because you volunteered to be there. Your actions and dedication are seen by people throughout the world as without a doubt the most heroic action of any person which can be made.

“You and the soldiers standing next to you from all of the other countries are the pride of not only the nations they represent, but every individual that yearns to be free,” the letter concluded. “Stand tall, my son, and be steadfast. For it is you who are the defender of freedom.”

As she read it, the emotion from the podium was palpable. Like Trump, Sanders has a deep respect for the men and women who serve our country. It was personal to her to make this announcement and obviously important.

“We owe it to the servicemen and women like the master sergeant who have fought in our name in Afghanistan for 17 years and to the families who have watched them go to secure an honorable and lasting outcome to this conflict,” Sanders saids during the press briefing, after reading the letter aloud.

Western Journalism added:

Though many on both the right and left have complained over the president’s just-announced decision to escalate the United States’ war in Afghanistan, it’s clear by Joseph’s poignant words why we can’t give up now when we’ve already come this far.

Closing up the briefing, Sanders noted that Joseph told Trump he had been a police officer for 30 years and that he sent the letter to the president in the hopes he’d read it.

“I’m glad to say that he did earlier today,” she said.

Each citizen is so important and special to the president, that he read this letter and kept it within reach, despite receiving an overwhelming amount of mail daily, most likely. He promised to work for the “average” American and our military and is doing just that. Part of Joseph’s words to his son also apply to Sanders and Trump as well: “Please don’t lose sight of your purpose.” America needs them both to remain steadfast to their purpose through the challenges heaped on them by detractors. There’s no doubt they too will fight until the end.
