Liberals Furious at Rapper Ice Cube for Helping Trump with Plan for Black Community

Leftists lost their minds when they discovered that cop-hating, anti-Trump, Muslim rapper and actor Ice Cube agreed to help Donald Trump.

Leftists lost their minds this week when they discovered that cop-hating, anti-Trump, Muslim rapper and actor Ice Cube agreed to join Donald Trump to write a plan to help the black community.

Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson got the ball rolling with a totally innocent tweet thanking Ice Cube for his help with the project called “The Platinum Plan” — a set of policies the Trump administration is looking to put in place to address some of the problems in the black community.

“Shoutout to @icecube for his willingness to step up and work with @realDonaldTrump Administration to help develop the #PlatinumPlan,” Pierson tweeted on Tuesday.

“Leaders gonna lead, haters gonna hate. Thank you for leading!” she quipped.

She added a funny gif of the actor saying “Today was a good day.”

For his part, Ice Cube confirmed his assistance on the “Contract with a Black America” in a tweet the next day:

Now, remember… Ice Cube made himself famous for pushing “music” filled with hate for the police. He is a close follower of the racist and anti-American Louis Farrakhan. And he has repeatedly attacked Trump in no uncertain terms for years.

… and now the idiots on the left are calling him a “sell out,” an “Uncle Tom,” and a “white supremacist” for trying to help his community in cooperation with the president.

Get a load of this idiocy:

Georgia Grade School Forces Kid to Remove Trump Costume on Heroes Day

A Georgia grade school has angered parents by forcing a child to remove his Donald Trump costume he made for the school’s “hero day.”

A Georgia grade school has angered parents by forcing a child to remove the Donald Trump costume he made for the school’s “hero day.”

Last Thursday, administrators of the Oglethorpe Point Elementary School in Simmons, Georgia, forced a pre-teen boy to remove the obvious Trump parts of his costume, which included a Trump 2020 hat, a Trump flag used as a cape, and a t-shirt with a large blue “T” on it.

The school claimed that the political-themed costume violated the school’s dress code.

But members of the community were outraged over the school’s decision to ruin the boy’s costume for his chosen hero.

According to the Brunswick News, one Facebook user commented: “I’m sorry, but if that’s who he thinks is super hero well he sure as heck should’ve been able to wear it. Some people actually respect their president. For the staff to make him take it off is ridiculous. I’ll say he picked a real superhero instead of a fictional one. What’s wrong with that? Come on people messing with a kid because of his political view is just sad.”

But schools superintendent Scott Spence was not happy with the administrator’s move. He said schools should be in the business of education, not telling children what political party they are allowed to support.

“I have been a school administrator for 20 years, and it seems that every four years when a presidential election is held, something out of the ordinary occurs in one of more of our schools,” Spence said. “When something like this occurs, teachers and administrators are an easy target for the folks on social media. We must realize that our schools are a microcosm of our community and the issues that we have in our community are going to filter into our schools.”

Spence criticized the administrator — whose name has not been made public — for not using “common sense” in the situation.

President Donald Trump argues that ‘everybody’ is “trying to protect Biden” in his first interview since leaving Walter Reed Military Medical Center.

Why do a virtual debate where Joe Biden will no doubly be fed the answers on a teleprompter by someone who isn’t senile?

NY Post:

President Trump on Thursday said he won’t “waste my time” participating in a virtual debate with former Vice President Joe Biden, responding to an announcement by the Commission on Presidential Debates that the candidates would be in remote locations for the contest next week.

“No, I’m not going to waste my time in a virtual debate,” Trump said on Fox Business.

“That’s not what debating is all about. You sit behind a computer and do … and then they cut you off whenever they want,” he continued.

He said the commission is trying to protect Biden.

The president said he just learned about the change in the format Thursday morning. More

Biden’s campaign today swiftly agreed to the virtual format, scheduled to be held on October 15.

U.S. Bicyclist Suspended from Team Merely Because He Supports Donald Trump

U.S. cyclist Quinn Simmons was suspended by the Trek-Segafredo team after he posted nice things about Trump

American cyclist, Quinn Simmons, was suspended by the Trek-Segafredo racing team after he dared to post nice things about Donald Trump on social media.

The racing team sponsor got upset when the 2019 junior road race world champion replied to a journalist’s tweet about Trump, the AP reported.

“Regrettably, team rider Quinn Simmons made statements online that we feel are divisive, incendiary, and detrimental to the team, professional cycling, its fans, and the positive future we hope to help create for the sport,” Trek-Segafredo said in a statement. “(He) will not be racing for Trek-Segafredo until further notice.”

Simmons had replied to a Dutch “journalist” who railed about Trump’s “horrible presidency” and said that anyone who supports Trump can “go” away and stop following her tweets.

Simmons replied “bye” and added a brown hand waving goodbye.

Another Twitter user asked directly if Simmons was a Trump supporter. He replied, “That’s right.”

That is ALL he did. THIS is what he was suspended for by the anti-free speech cycling sponsor.

Simmons, 19, slammed the suspension and those claiming he is a “racist.”

“To those who found the color of the emoji racist, I can promise that I did not mean for it to be interpreted that way. I would like to apologize to everyone who found this offensive as I strongly stand against racism in any form,” Simmons said. “To anyone who disagrees with me politically, that is fine. I won’t hate you for it. I only ask the same.”

For her part, the journalist said she was not pleased that Simmons was suspended over her twitter postings. She then deleted her account. At least one good thing came of this foolishness.

The Left’s Latest Attack on Donald Trump’s Tax Returns Is Total Fake News

The left is at it again, trying to make it look like Trump is doing something baaaad with his tax returns. Only the whole story is fake news.

Published

on

The New York Times is at it again, trying to make it look like Trump is doing something baaaad with his tax returns. Only the whole story is fake news.

Firstly, Ryan Ellis of The Federalist did an excellent job explaining how fraudulent the left’s latest attack on Trump’s taxes really is.

Turning to the particulars of the tax return, there simply isn’t much here. There’s certainly no smoking gun, nothing that on its face is illegal in some way. The portrait that emerges is one of a very aggressive, wheeler-dealer businessman with a thousand fingers in a thousand pies. Trump allocates money in a wide array of business ventures, generating tax deductions that offset income from these and other enterprises.

Trump himself in the piece describes his approach as “truthful hyperbole,” which is one of those wonderful phrases like “trust but verify,” “non-denial denial,” and “unknown unknowns.” In this case, the phrase tells me, as someone who has had all sorts of tax clients over the years, that the president loves the game. He is always looking for his next business venture and wants to plow all his profits from other lines of work into the next chapter of his life.

Not surprisingly, a business empire run this way robs a lot of profitable Peters to pay a lot of unprofitable Pauls. The New York Times article throws around terms that sound tricky or scary to normal people, but to tax professionals are part of any business tax return — depreciation, amortization, business bad debt, net operating losses, passive losses, historic rehabilitation credits, consulting fees, and the like. The bottom line is that the Trump business empire is basically a closed circuit — profits from business A are used to prop up business B and acquire business C. That creates a lot of deductions that offset the profit, which in turn means that in some years, very little tax is owed.

None of that makes Trump a tax cheat, Ellis points out.

Ellis has far more that you should go read.

But Twitter user alexthechick also did great work revealing just what a lie the left is trying to push on this Trump taxes story.

In a series of several tweets, Alexandria Brown made some salient points:

And there you have it. Trump paid millions in taxes when he was supposed to pay millions in taxes.

Watch Trump Expose Democrats Plan To Destroy America At His Speech On American History

President Trump announced yesterday that he was creating the “1776 Commission” to promote patriotism in U.S. education as part of the administration’s efforts to combat the far Left’s agenda of trying to re-write American history.

“Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character,” Trump said at the White House Conference on American History, hosted at the National Archives Museum. “We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms, and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world.”

NY Post:

President Trump on Thursday announced a federal “1776 Commission” to promote “patriotic education” and accused Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and the New York Times of warping history.

Trump said Democrats and the Times’ “1619 Project” promote an inaccurate version of US history by over-emphasizing race and the legacy of slavery.

“I will soon sign an executive order establishing a national commission to promote patriotic education. It will be called the ‘1776 Commission’,” Trump said in 17-minute speech at the National Archives marking the anniversary of the Constitution’s signing.

The commission “will encourage our educators to teach your children about the miracle of American history and make plans to honor the 250th anniversary of our founding” in 2026, Trump said. More

Teach our children what is in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and let them read the Federalist Papers so they can decide for themselves exactly what the Founding Fathers were all about.

Our education system needs a massive overhaul…There’s too much push toward teaching kids to take tests and not enough teaching of all the basic subjects for a good well-rounded educational foundation!

Trump Created a Middle-Class Boom That Helped Women and Minorities Most

A recent editorial in ‘Issues & Insights’ points out that President Trump did more for the middle-class, women, and minorities than any president ever has.

A recent editorial in Issues & Insights points out that President Donald Trump did more for the middle-class, women, and minorities than any president ever has.

Liberals, Democrats, and the lying press have been claiming that Trump has been bad for women and minorities, but at least on the economy, Issues & Insights says the claim is a flat out lie.

“Not that you’d ever know it from the media blackout, but households have seen the biggest jump in real median income in at least 52 years, I & I wrote in a September 15 editorial.

The staff editorial added that if Trump were a Democrat these “incredible achievements” would be “leading every newspaper and TV news program.”

“The absence press coverage is even more astounding when you consider that the gains were among lower-income families, women, blacks and Hispanics,” the piece continued.

This is unarguably true. If Trump were a Democrat and had done all this, he would be a shoo-in for re-election because the media would be praising him every second of every day.

The editorial included a VERY long list of Trump achievements, including: “Median household income reaches all-time high: In 2019, median household income shot up 6.8%, the biggest annual increase since at least 1967.”

Even more amazing, “The top 5% of households saw their share of total income drop,” they wrote, and “Lower-income families gained the most.”

“The bottom fifth of households saw their incomes climb 10% under Trump. Those in the next fifth saw incomes rise more than 9%,” they said.

Women came away big winner, too:

Women gained ground. The female-to-male earnings ratio – a flawed measure of inequality that is nevertheless a fixation of the left – went from 81.7% in 2017 to 82.3% in 2019. That’s the highest ratio in more than 50 years.

Nearly 3 million women entered the workforce over those years, hitting an all-time high of 52 million. By comparison, 2.1 women million joined the workforce in Obama’s last three years in office.

Also:

Minorities gained more than whites. Whites’ median income climbed 6.8% from 2017 to 2019. Blacks saw median incomes rise more than 10%. Asians more than 15%, Hispanics more than 7%.

The editorial has even more than that, but these are key issues.

Now, why hasn’t the media been telling us about this?

Oh, that’s right, the media isn’t about reporting truth and facts.
