Obama Begs White Detroit Democrat After Trump Announces Next Black Prez In His Crowd

Published

on

While President Trump is on the rally path with just a few days to go until the midterm elections, former president, and Trump antagonist, Barack Obama has been attempting to outdo him.

Although Obama was America’s first black president, he’s proving that he apparently used his race to get ahead. He made no genuine impact on the lives or livelihood of those of his race, despite pretending to. In the meantime, Trump has which must be a sore spot for his predecessor, who is the country’s first black president.

100% Fed Up reports:

Former President Barack Obama came to the mostly black Detroit to ask voters to support four white candidates whose names will appear on the ballot in the upcoming midterm elections. One of the candidates Barack Obama was stumping for, is career-politician and do-nothing-Senator, Democrat Debbie Stabenow.

His visit came 11 days before a mid-term election in which turnout could be a critical factor for Democratic candidates like gubernatorial nominee Gretchen Whitmer and U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow. Vice President Mike Pence is expected to rally with Republicans on Monday.

Michigan Democrats traditionally struggle to turn out voters in non-presidential election years, particularly in urban areas like Detroit. Beyond Whitmer’s running mate Garlin Gilchrist II, Democrats are offering a predominately white statewide ticket to voters in the majority African-American city.

Detroit News reports the reaction after Obama pumped his fist as he took the stage, hugging the Democratic candidates who he hoped would carry out his cause:

Former President Barack Obama rallied thousands of Michigan Democrats here Friday night, channeling his past calls for hope and change as he urged voters to get to the polls Nov. 6 for what “might be the most important election of our lifetime.”

Speaking to an enthusiastic overflow crowd at Cass Tech High School, Obama warned supporters that the failure to vote in the mid-term election could have “dangerous and profound” impacts for a country now led by President Donald Trump and a Republican-led Congress.

“The character of our country is on the ballot,” he said.

While he rarely addressed Trump by name, Obama repeatedly criticized his bombastic successor while lamenting what he called a “cynical” politics of division.

“You can reject that kind of politics,” the former president said. “The good news is, Michigan, you can choose a more hopeful, more generous vision of America. But to get there, you have to vote.”

Fans packed the roughly 5,000-seat gymnasium, where the high school marching band punctuated Obama’s punch lines with drum fills and cymbal crashes. Supporters cycled between “Yes we can” and “Obama” chants.

Beyond Whitmer’s running mate Garlin Gilchrist II, Democrats are offering a predominately white statewide ticket to voters in the majority African-American city.

Obama, the nation’s first black president, pumped his fist to the crowd as he took the stage before hugging Stabenow and Whitmer, whom he praised during his speech.

He also gave shout-outs to congressional candidates, including 11th Congressional District hopeful Haley Stevens, who worked on his auto task force and was “a critical part of my team that helped the auto industry come roaring back” after near collapse. Pence’s wife Karen rallied early Friday evening with Stevens’ Republican opponent Lena Epstein in Commerce Township.

Two years after an election that Trump and other Republicans won on a promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Obama touted his signature health care law and its popular protections for pre-existing conditions.

Voters can trust Stabenow to defend those protections “because she was there” fighting for them in the first place, Obama said, questioning Republican challenger John James’ claim he supports Trump “2000 percent.”

Whitmer helped expand Medicaid access when she served in the state Legislature, he said, “and few people fought against it harder than her opponent,” Republican Attorney General Bill Schuette, who now says the Healthy Michigan program is “the law of the land” and not going away.

While the national and state economy have improved since cratering during the Great Recession that peaked Obama’s first year in office, critics say sluggish growth under his watch has improved under Trump and federal tax cuts. Michigan’s unemployment rate in January 2017 when Obama left office was 5 percent, while the jobless rate in September was 4 percent.

Republicans called it “insulting” for Obama to rally with Democrats who “will work to systematically dismantle the policies generating all of this progress,” said Republican National Committee spokesman Michael Joyce. “Michiganders have high hopes for a bright and prosperous future, and voters know that no matter what Obama says, Michigan Democrats do not share that vision.”

Obama criticized tax cuts he said will balloon the deficit and primarily benefit the wealthy and corporations.

He accused Republicans of trying to distract voters from critical issues. Instead of talking about Flint water, infrastructure or health care, Trump is trying to fire up his base by talking about “impoverished refugees 1,000 miles away,” he said, referencing the Honduran migrant caravan the Republican president has bemoaned.

And Obama repeatedly criticized “lies” coming out of Washington, D.C., arguing that telling the truth should be something that Democrats and Republicans should agree on.

“When words stop meaning anything, when truth doesn’t matter, when people can just make up facts, then democracy, it doesn’t work,” Obama said. “There’s no accountability”

Whitmer and other Democrats contrasted Obama’s presidency with Trump.

“Anyone miss the days when we had a president we could be proud of?” Whitmer said. “A president who told the truth? A president who protects the Great Lakes and the auto industry? A president who made it possible for us to expand Medicaid here in Michigan and get 680,000 people covered?”

Stabenow praised Obama for continuing and expanding the auto bailout that helped save jobs at General Motors and Chrysler.

“No thanks to the current Vice President Mike Pence, who voted against us when he was a congressman,” she said. ‘And by the way, he’ll be here Monday stumping for my opponent.”

Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who served under Obama, spent significant time touting Michigan Proposal 2, which would create a citizen redistricting commission to draw new political boundaries each decade instead of politicians.

“This is one of the most gerrymandered states in the country,” said Holder, who chairs the National Democratic Redistricting Committee. “I’ve been all around, and you’ve got it bad in Michigan. You’ve got to do something about it.”

Holder also urged Democrats to vote Nov. 6 even if they are “disappointed or feeling despair” after election loses in 2016.

“Think about Martin Luther King Jr. and John Lewis and how they must’ve felt tired at some points of the civil rights struggle,” he said. “People died so that people would have the right to vote. People suffered so that people would have the right to vote.”

U.S. Rep. Brenda Lawrence, D-Southfield, rallied female voters before introducing 11th Congressional District candidate Haley Stevens and 8th Congressional District candidate Elissa Slotkin, women Lawrence said she wanted with her on the “front lines” in Congress.

Thousands of supporters lined up outside Cass Tech earlier Friday to hear Obama speak, some who waited from 10 a.m. until the doors opened at 5 p.m. At the front of the line, a diverse group of women were sharing food and stories.

“It’s amazing the decency that we’ve all demonstrated toward each other,” said Fazila Siddiqui, a 45-year-old Pakistani immigrant and nurse practitioner student from West Bloomfield.

The former president “helped keep the country together, and I feel like that’s something we’ve gotten away from,” said Siddiqui, who plans to vote for Whitmer in the governor’s race.

Renee Hill of Detroit, a 56-year-old legal department worker, said she started her day by texting as many people as possible to tell them to vote on Nov. 6. She’s borrowing her daughter’s phone and didn’t even know most of the people she was messaging.

“I don’t care if you’re a Democrat or Republican, if you don’t vote, you take away from your voice,” she said. “You can’t complain about nothing because you didn’t get off or your behind and go do your civic duty.”

Just 31 percent of Detroit voters cast ballots in 2014, compared with 43 percent statewide, when Republican Gov. Rick Snyder won re-election over Democratic challenger Mark Schauer by roughly four percentage points.

About 48.6 percent of Detroit voters cast ballots in 2016, when statewide turnout topped 64 percent and Republican President Donald Trump beat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton by less than one point.

Detroit elections officials are projecting that 41 percent to 46 percent of the city’s 470,000 registered voters will cast ballots on Election Day based on the primary turnout in the city and statewide. In 2016, City Clerk Janice Winfrey expected a voter turnout of 45 percent to 50 percent.

James, who is challenging Stabenow, on Friday launched a new a commercial that argued black voters shouldn’t be captives of the Democratic Party.

“So Joe Biden has said that he believes that Republicans don’t want black people to vote. Well, I’m a Republican. I want black people to vote. In fact, I want everyone to vote who is eligible to vote,” James says in the one-minute ad.

“…The Democratic Party leadership cares more about the black vote than the black people, and it’s time to wake up. It doesn’t have to be this way. We can have a seat at both tables, and we can elevate our people together.”

Pence is expected to campaign 8th Congressional District candidate Mike Bishop and 11th District candidate Lena Epstein on Monday before attending a Kent County GOP dinner with Schuette, James and other Republicans.

The Michigan Republican Party on Friday bashed Democrats ahead of the visit by Obama, arguing his eight years as president “were an unmitigated disaster.”

“Obama’s policies of high taxes, more regulation and fewer jobs were the perfect book end to Jennifer Granholm’s Lost Decade,” said Michigan GOP spokeswoman Sarah Anderson. “Republicans have the momentum, and just like in 2016, last minute fly-ins will not slow that momentum down.”

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

Published

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.

Do YOU think we have the best President and First Lady ever? Follow Amanda Shea on Twitter to get RIGHT daily insight!

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

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.
