Kim Kardashian Wants Huge New Political Position After Meeting With Trump – ‘Never Say Never’

Published

on

When people think of the Kardashian name they are usually thinking about reality television and sexual promiscuity. However, as of late it could also mean politics. Especially since Kim Kardashian got involved in a clemency case for a non-violent first-time drug offender who had spent the last 20 years of her life in jail.

The headlines of all major media outlets were buzzing when President Trump finally agreed to the clemency after years of Kim Kardashian’s work to achieve that result. Now, she is telling people higher political office might be in the cards.

CNN reported,

“Kim Kardashian West says she hasn’t ruled out going into politics. Last week President Trump commuted the sentence of Alice Johnson, a first-time nonviolent drug offender who’d been serving a life sentence since 1996 after Kardashian West made a case for Johnson in an Oval Office visit. It’s a victory that has changed her life, Kardashian West said on CNN’s “The Van Jones Show.”

“I honestly saw that if I could use my platform just to do something for one person, that it opens the conversation for so much more and for other people to want to do the same thing,” the reality star told Jones. “If more people would just put their personal feelings aside and talk about really important issues that have to be discussed, then so much more can get done,” she said. Asked by Jones if she would ever run for office, Kardashian West said it isn’t likely right now. Still, she won’t rule it out completely.

“I guess never say never. But that’s not going to be like, Kim’s running. That’s not where I am,” she said.
Kardashian West told Jones she wants to help other incarcerated women, “starting one person at a time,” and has no interest in following a specific party line. “No matter who you talk to, no matter what political party, people feel what’s right is right and that’s what I love about this, is that it can just be so bipartisan,” she said.”

The case that Kardashian was advocating for, that has gotten her into the political realm, was one concerning prison reform. it was back in October of 2017 that West heard about the story of Alice Marie Johnson and since then has worked with her to get her out of jail. Alice Marie Johnson was a 62-year-old grandmother, great-grandmother, and mother. Decades ago she was convicted of nonviolent crimes that included laundering charges as well as several drug offenses.

When the full pardon of Johnson was announced the administration released a statement in which they indicated they intend on continuing to be tough on crime but acknowledging that those who have paid their debt to society should be given a second chance. When the news broke West took to social media to show her excitement exclaiming that it was the best news ever. Shortly thereafter, she made the phone call to Johnson to let her know that her sentence had been committed. West detailed how during the phone call Johnson started screaming and crying in a way she will never forget.

CNN reported,

“A photo of Kardashian West and Johnson sitting down for an interview to air on NBC’s “Today” show on Thursday was posted to the Facebook page of The Scholl Law Firm, which represents Johnson. Johnson was convicted in 1996 of conspiracy to possess cocaine and attempted possession of cocaine and spent a third of her life in prison.

“Ms. Johnson has accepted responsibility for her past behavior and has been a model prisoner over the past two decades,” the White House said in a statement. “Despite receiving a life sentence, Alice worked hard to rehabilitate herself in prison, and act as a mentor to her fellow inmates.”

It was Kardashian West who broke the good news to Johnson in a tearful phone call shortly before her release. “I was like, ‘You’re going home,'” Kardashian West said last week, recalling the conversation. “We cried, maybe, on the phone for, like, three minutes straight,” an emotional Kardashian West told CNN, recounting her advocacy for Johnson and her role in Trump’s decision to grant her clemency. “Everyone was just crying,” Kardashian West said her mission started with a call to Ivanka Trump to plead Johnson’s case and also to ask her for a meeting with her father.

“I know that you have compassion for women like this,” she recalled saying. “She immediately felt it,” Kardashian West said of Ivanka Trump. The President’s daughter connected Kardashian with her husband, Jared Kushner, who took an interest in Johnson’s case, according to Kardashian West. Daily phone calls with the White House followed. But Kardashian West didn’t want to take too much credit for Johnson’s release and acknowledged others who tried to help her over the years.

“I did what I knew how to do,” she said. Last week, an emotional Johnson marveled at her freedom after more than two decades behind bars, grateful for a second chance — and craving seafood. President Barack Obama did not intervene in Johnson’s case during his eight years in office because the Justice Department recommended denying Johnson’s request for commutation. Three requests were made but never reached Obama’s desk because he followed the Justice Department’s recommendations, a senior Obama administration official told CNN.”

While the Obama Administration refused to take action on Johnson’s case the Trump Administration did. Given the flack and criticism that this administration receives when it comes to marijuana, prison reform, and crime one would think the commutation would never occur. However, President Trump’s actions indicate that he knew what the right thing to do was and he did. Regardless of President Obama’s inaction that caused Johnson to remain in prison for a longer period of time.

Share if you agree.

Share if you believe this should be an example to liberals that President Trump is willing to find a middle ground.

Share if you think that this shows that President Trump is a good negotiator and someone willing to recognize when change needs to happen.

Share if you hope that Johnson will reform her old ways and be a contributing member of society.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
