Historic Civil Rights Figure: ‘If You Do Vote For Biden, You Don’t Know History’

At the Republican National Convention, one of the most powerful speeches came from historic civil rights figure Clarence Henderson, who strongly declared that a vote for Joe Biden is a denial of history.

Henderson participated in the Greensboro sit-in, a series of non-violent protests where young black American students refused to leave the segregated Woolworth lunch counter after being denied service in 1960.

Full Transcript:

There have been movements that have changed the course of history. Among the most extraordinary was the civil rights movement. Sixty years ago, segregation was legal and enforced. The simple act of sitting at a lunch counter could lead to physical harm, jail time, or worse. I know from personal experience walking into Woolworth’s department store on November 2, 1960, I knew it was unlike any day I had experienced before.

My friends had been denied service the day before because of the color of their skin. We knew it wasn’t right. When we went back the next day I didn’t know whether I could come out in a vertical or prone position, in handcuffs, or on a stretcher, or even in a body bag. By sitting down to order a cup of coffee, we challenged injustice. We knew it was necessary, but we didn’t know what would happen.

We faced down the KKK. We were cursed at and called all kinds of names. They threatened to kill us and some of us were arrested, but it was worth it. Our actions inspired similar protests throughout the South against racial injustice. In the end, segregation was abolished and our country and moved a step closer to true equality for all. That is what actual peaceful protests can accomplish.

America is not perfect. We are always improving, but the great thing about this country is it is not where you come from, it is where you are going. I was born on what someone call the wrong side of the tracks. I don’t even have a birth certificate. I never attended an integrated school, and I am the only one out of my immediate family who graduated from college, an HBCU. I am a military veteran and a civil rights activist, and, you know what else, I am a Republican and I support Donald Trump.

If that sounds strange, you don’t know your history. It was the Republican party that passed the 13th amendment, abolishing slavery. It was the Republican party that passed the 14th amendment, giving black men citizenship. It was the Republican party that passed the 15th amendment, giving black men the right to vote. Freedom of thought is a powerful thing. Americans, voters all over the country who the media has tried to convince to conform to the same democratic talking points. Do you know what that will get you? The same old results. Joe Biden had the audacity to say if you don’t vote for him, you are not black. To that, I say, if you do vote for Biden, you don’t know your history.

Donald Trump is not a politician. He is a leader. Politicians are dime a dozen, leaders are priceless. The record funding Trump gave HBCUs use is priceless too. So are the record number of jobs he created for the black community and the investment he drove into our neighborhoods with tax incentives and opportunity zones. So are the lives he restored bypassing criminal justice reform, where 91% of the inmates released are black.

These achievements demonstrate Donald Trump truly cares about black lives. His policies show his heart. He has done more for black Americans in four years than Joe Biden has done in 50. Donald Trump is offering real and lasting change and an unprecedented opportunity to rise. A country that embraces the spirit of the civil rights movement of the ’60s, a place where people are judged by the content of their character, talent, and ability, not by the color of their skin. This is the America I was fighting for 60 years ago. This is the America Donald Trump is fighting for today. Let’s all join in this fight for reelecting Donald Trump on November 3. Thank you.

Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner Abandon Donald Trump in Election Fraud Fight

The rats have already jumped ship and are swimming away as quickly as they can and Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are leading the exodus.

Published

The rats have already jumped ship and are swimming away as quickly as they can and Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are leading the exodus.

According to journalist Jonathan Swan, Jared and Ivanka have distanced themselves from President Trump’s election fraud fight as they look to crafting the next stage of their political careers.

Perhaps Kushner did lend a hand in the crafting of Trump’s Middle Eastern peace success, but he has done little else while in Washington. And Ivanka has done even less. In fact, we’ll see Ivanka dive to the far left in the next few years. She’s already shown that in her many statements over the years.

If conservatives know what is good for them, they’ll jump Jared and Ivanka’s ship, too. These two are not conservative and will be no vessel for Americanism going forward. The only reason they weren’t jettisoned years ago is because they are family.

Still, according to Swan and Byron York, these inside snipers are aiming at Trump’s election fraud lawyers including Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani, and not the president. But inference is clear. They mean to say that Trump is over.

If Donald Trump’s presidency is over, we also must be sure to bury Ivanka and Jared at the same time. These two have always been enemies inside the walls.

“There is no controversy about my son. It’s all a lie. It’s a flat lie because the president has nothing else to run on. If you noticed, while the American people are talking about what’s happening to their families; he has no plan, and at the debate, he has no plan. Everything from ‘The Wall Street Journal,’ every other major news outlet has said what he’s saying is simply not true about my son.”

Van Jones Praises Trump, ‘Doesn’t Get Enough Credit’ For ‘Good Stuff He Has Done For Black Community’

Van Jones Praises Trump, ‘Doesn’t Get Enough Credit’ For ‘Good Stuff He Has Done For Black Community’

Furious liberals demand that CNN fire Van Jones for saying Trump ‘doesn’t get credit’ for the ‘good things’ he has done for the black community.

“I think it’s really unfortunate because Donald Trump, and I get beat up by liberals every time I say it but I keep saying it, he has done good stuff for the Black community,” Jones said. “Opportunity Zone stuff, Black college stuff, I worked with him on criminal stuff, I saw Donald Trump have African American people, formally incarcerated, in the White House, embraced them, treated them well. There is a side to Donald Trump that I think he does not get enough credit for.”

Daily Mail:

Van Jones, the former Obama administration official and current CNN commentator, said on Friday that President Trump ‘doesn’t get credit’ for the ‘good things’ he has done for African Americans, prompting Twitter users to call for his firing.

Jones made the comment while providing on-air analysis during Jake Tapper’s daily CNN broadcast on Friday.

Tapper began the segment by panning Trump’s comment during Thursday’s debate in which the president said he had done more for black Americans than any of his predecessors aside from Abraham Lincoln.

The CNN host, who mentioned Lyndon Johnson’s signing into law of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as an example of a president who did more for African Americans than Trump, then played a clip from the debate. More

Van Jones is absolutely correct. I’m no a fan of  him, but regardless we could use more of this from both sides. Nothing wrong with acknowledging good work. The true measure of a person’s belief on an issue is in their actions and not what they say. President Trump has done most of what he said he would even under the most extreme of opposition.

Letter Threatens To Burn Homes Of New Hampshire Trump Supporters

“Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election.”

President Trump supporters in two small New England cities have gotten menacing letters threatening to burn down their homes.

“Dear neighbor. You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter. Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election. We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make sure that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage. You have been given “Fair Warning.” Always remember, it was “you” that started this Civil War. Be prepared to face the severe consequences of your pre-emptive actions against democracy.”

TDW:

Someone is sending letters to Trump supporters in New Hampshire, threatening to burn down their homes if President Trump loses the presidential election but will not concede defeat.

As WMUR reported, the letter, which Milford police stated has been sent to various homes in the town displaying support for the president.

[…]

Brookline police Chief Bill Quigley confirmed two Trump supporters in his town also received the letter. “I was kind of quite shocked that anyone would send a letter out with that type of threat,” he admitted.

Quigley said he alerted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, adding that the perpetrator could be charged with a serious crime. He explained, “Not only with us, with criminal threatening. It’s on a felony level, because of the threat of burning homes down and causing injury, but it could also be with the postal inspectors, something on the federal level.” More

So instead of trying to talk to people to earn their vote they would rather threaten and scare people.  These people who did this have no idea who they are screwing with. Live Free or Die and if pressured, we are ready to defend ourselves and our homes.

Independent Pollster Frank Luntz: Voters Turned Off By ‘Condescending’ Harris, Pence ‘Was The Winner’

Pollster Frank Luntz told Fox News after the vice presidential debate last night that Vice President Mike Pence was the winner of the debate, saying that voters were turned off by Kamala Harris’ “condescending” and “abrasive” attitude toward Mike Pence.

“The complaint about Kamala Harris was that she was abrasive and condescending,” said Frank Luntz, who analyzed reactions from voters in various swing states. “The complaint about Mike Pence was that he was too tired, but [he was] vice presidential, or presidential. If this is a battle over style and substance — which is often the case with undecided voters because they simply do not choose on policy, they also choose on persona — this was Mike Pence’s night.”

Frank Luntz said that voters disliked the candidates dodging questions but overall they were much happier with the way the debate went vs. the way the first debate went.

Frank Luntz said that while voters were frustrated with the vice president for repeatedly running over his allotted time, “Harris’ reactions to Pence — the smiling, the smirking, the scowling’ left them far ‘angrier’ with her performance,” Fox News reported.

Luntz said that voters were “more agitated with Kamala’s presentation than they were with Mike Pence.”

Twitter has a few thoughts:

Trump Vows Immediate $1,200 Check To Americans If Pelosi Moves Bill

Democrats and Republicans have been quarreling for months over another stimulus bill to help millions of Americans struggling financially during the coronavirus pandemic. But the president has a plan to cut through all their red tape.

“If I am sent a Stand Alone Bill for Stimulus Checks ($1,200), they will go out to our great people IMMEDIATELY. I am ready to sign right now. Are you listening Nancy?” Donald Trump wrote on Twitter this morning.

Trump had another message for Pelosi: “Move Fast, I Am Waiting To Sign!”

As the leader of the Democrats in the House, Nancy Pelosi could recommend that her caucus to support such a bill, which likely would move quickly through the Republican-controlled Senate and make it to Trump’s desk in the Oval Office for his signature.

On The View today, Nancy Pelosi said: “It’s hard to see any clear sane path on what he’s doing but the fact is, he saw the political downside of his statement of walking away from the negotiations …he’s rebounding from a terrible mistake he made yesterday and the Republicans in Congress are going down the drain with him on that.”

“But I will say this, it is really important for us to come to this agreement. When the president just popped off and made that announcement without even informing us that that was the case, he insulted the Constitution of the United States.”

Nancy is the most powerful woman in the world? Keep on dreaming Joy Behar! How fitting… The biggest hypocrite in the country on the most hypocritical show on TV.
