Stanley Cup Champs Run Into Ivanka Trump In DC, Cameras Caught What The Players Began Chanting At Her

Wow!

Published

on

While having a date night at Café Milano in Georgetown, First Daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, White House advisor Jared Kushner, ran into the Washington Capitals at a DC hotspot Saturday night.

As reported by 100Percent FedUp, the team was at the restaurant on a what we can refer to as an unofficial victory tour as amused diners filmed them using their trophy as a giant champagne goblet and leading a rendition of “We are the champions.”

After they all introduced themselves to the White House power couple, the first-time NHL champs invited Jared and Ivanka to a private dining room at the restaurant and the group took pictures. Capitals Captain Alex Ovechkin posed front and center with the cup as he stood next to a smiling Ivanka while she was surrounded by the rest of the players.

After the pictures were taken all the players in attendance started chanting, ‘Trump, Trump, Trump.’

Of course, Social media keyboard commandos became unhinged because of this display. To the point of replying with comments like, “don’t let her touch it, eww” and “burn the cup it’s tainted forever”.

How great is it to see the support President has within the Capitols. Especially when in a time when we have NBA players like Lebron James, who was just swept by the Warriors in the NBA championships saying that whatever team wins they won’t be going to the White House because President Trump doesn’t believe what “we believe.” Whatever that’s supposed to mean.

Here is more on the Lebron James saga via USA Today:

“Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James said in a video posted Thursday that President Trump doesn’t “give a (expletive) about the people.”

James, who previously referred to Trump as a “bum” on Twitter, made the comments in a video piece that was shot last month for UNINTERRUPTED, a multimedia platform that he co-founded.

In the piece, the four-time NBA MVP and Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant were asked by ESPN’s Cari Champion about political division in the United States and the climate that athletes face when trying to speak out.

“Well, the climate is hot,” James said. “The number-one job in America, the appointed person, is someone who doesn’t understand the people. And really don’t give a (expletive) about the people.”

James explained that, as a child, there were three high-profile people from whom he sought inspiration: The best athlete, the greatest musician and the president.

“You never thought you could be them, but you can grab inspiration from them,” James continued. “I never felt I could be the president of the United States, but I grabbed inspiration from that. And this time right now, with the president of the United States, it’s at a bad time. And while we cannot change what comes out of that man’s mouth, we can continue to alert the people that watch us, that listen to us, (that) this is not the way.”

The 33-year-old James, who is among the most recognizable athletes in the United States, has not been shy about criticizing Trump since he took office last year.

In the wake of violent protests in Charlottesville, Va., in August, James referred to Trump as the “so-called president” and the need to unify as a country without him. One month later, at Cleveland’s media day, he spoke at length about his frustration with Trump’s rhetoric and referred to the president as “that guy.” Then, during a December game in Washington, he wore one white shoe and one black shoe with the word “Equality” on the heel.

“Obviously, we know where we are right now. We know who’s at the helm,” James said when asked about the shoes.

James, who supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, has been one of several prominent NBA figures to denounce Trump over the past year. Steve Kerr of the Warriors, Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs and Stan Van Gundy of the Detroit Pistons have been among the most vocal coaches with their criticism, in addition to several players.

Durant, for example, said he would not visit the White House after the Warriors won the NBA title because “I don’t respect who’s in office right now.” (Teammate Stephen Curry also later said he wouldn’t go, and Trump responded by uninviting the team.)

“When we’re talking about leadership, and what’s going on in our country, it’s all about leadership. And I learned that playing basketball,” Durant said in the UNINTERRUPTED piece. “I learned a lot of life skills from playing basketball. You need to empower people, you need to encourage people. And that’s what builds a great team. And I feel like our team, as a country, is not ran by a great coach.”

Added James: “It’s not even a surprise when he says something. It’s like laughable. It’s laughable and it’s scary.”

Although the Caps have yet to be formally invited to the White House, and one player, Devante Smith-Pelly, already said he wouldn’t go, the group told Jared and Ivanka that they looked forward to seeing them at the White House. The couple then thanked the team and their hospitality by buying all the patrons at the restaurant a shot of Tequila Patron.

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.
