Trump Budget Kills Nixon-Era Affirmative Action Corporate Welfare Agency

The Trump administration’s first budget would shutter the fifty year old Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA).

The MBDA hands out grants and runs federally funded “management consulting operations” around the country. It has long been targeted by conservatives as a form of corporate welfare.

The agency has also been criticized for encouraging a “flight from white.” Since it offers aid only to business owned by officially recognized minorities, it creates an incentive for Americans to seek to have themselves recognized as non-white minorities. In 1977, Americans Indians successfully had their classification changed from white to Asian. More recently, some Americans of Middle Eastern descent have been lobbying to be recognized as minorities as well.

One effect of designating more Americans as officially recognized minorities has been to dilute the benefits of affirmative action and the MBDA to the originally intended recipients, African Americans.

The MBDA was created by Richard Nixon with a 1969 executive order under its original name of the Office of Minority Business Enterprise. The idea was that the agency would work to remedy the effects of past discrimination. It was a precursor to a series of programs that what would later be labeled “affirmative action” policies.

Trump Budget Stops Cash Payments to Illegal Immigrants

IRS program has paid billions in federal dollars to aliens under the guise of a ‘tax credit’

The president’s proposed 2018 budget would put a stop to a government program that has paid out more than $35 billion over the past ten years to illegal immigrants in lump-sum payments, disguised as a “tax credit.”

The use of the credit by illegal immigrants, which has allowed them to get up to $1,000 for each child they claim, including children who are not theirs and who don’t live in the United States, has been referred to as “a multi-billion-dollar fraud scheme” that has taken money out of the hands of hard-working Americans.

It’s called the “Additional Child Tax Credit” — but in application it is not really a credit at all.

Thousands of illegal immigrants file tax returns every year using a taxpayer identification number issued by the IRS called an ITIN. Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies says there is no reason for anyone but an illegal immigrant to use an ITIN to file a tax return: Even legal residents who are not citizens would have a Social Security card. And the only reason people working here illegally would file a return is to get money, through a “credit” that counts against the taxes paid, and then sends them the remaining amount.

Activist Illegal Alien Charged with 103 Acts of Vandalism, Many Anti-Trump

An illegal alien anti-Trump immigration activist has been charged with 103 counts of vandalism at the University of Connecticut where he attended.

The graffiti included “F**k Trump,” and “PEST,” the latter is allegedly his tag signature. He also allegedly painted cartoon face with “F**k Trump” in a bubble on university property. The Daily Mail reported that 21-year-old Cruz-Lopez described himself as an undocumented immigrant.

Cruz-Lopez (pictured above in black shirt) is a community organizer for CT Students for a Dream, an organization that advocates for undocumented students, reported the Hartford Courant. Police at the University knew Cruz-Lopez because he helped coordinate protests against President Trump and his immigration policies.

United We Dream described Cruz-Lopez as “a student with DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals),” after police arrested him at the White House in February 2016. The United We Dream website states, “We organize and advocate for the dignity and fair treatment of immigrant youth and families, regardless of immigration status.”

Camille Paglia: Trump Will Be Re-elected Because People Will Vote Against Media

Even this feminist icon is sick and tired of reporters.

Feminist icon Camille Paglia did not vote for Donald Trump. In fact, she voted for Jill Stein. However, she believes Trump will win re-election in 2020 due to the fact that Americans will cast their votes against the media.

“Democrats are doing this in collusion with the media obviously, because they just want to create chaos,” she said, commenting on the media coverage of the firing of FBI director James Comey. “They want to completely obliterate any sense that the Trump administration is making any progress on anything.”

She went on to explain that the first days of administrations are often rife with political drama and turmoil as the President gets his feet on the ground. She gave the examples of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama as having particularly dramatic transitions. Then, she added, “those two guys had actually been politicians!”

Though she extends Trump grace that other liberals will not, it doesn’t means she’ll be casting a vote for him when the time comes. “I’m looking forward to voting Democrat again, but the point is I feel that the media has so utterly lost its credibility that I think people are going to vote against the media again.” Paglia knows that Americans are sick and tired of all of the half-truths, anonymous sources, and outright lies that are propagated in newspapers and television screen all over this nation.

GOP: Steve Bannon Is Right About the Fight to Save America

“We have no choice but to completely DRAIN THE SWAMP,” the email said, noting that Trump is “already started cleaning house.”

The Republican National Committee sent out a fund-raising email asking for assistance on President Donald Trump’s “Drain the Swamp” agenda.

The email notes the ongoing battle against a hostile press while offering words of wisdom from a top Trump adviser, Steve Bannon.

“You already knew the media is out to get us,” the email said. It continues:

But sadly it’s not just the fake news — there are people within our own unelected bureaucracy that want to sabotage President Trump and our entire America First movement.

Steve Bannon was right when he said, “If you think they’re going to give you your country back without a fight, you’re sadly mistaken.”

“Every day is going to be a fight,” Bannon said. “That is the promise of Donald Trump.”

The email points out that the people opposed to Trump and his policies do not want to put America first.

Cassandra Fairbanks Loved Bernie Sanders. Now She’s a Donald Trump Superfan

Twenty-five months before Fairbanks was celebrating Trump’s election win, she was in Ferguson, Missouri, shouting, “Fuck the police.”

“You don’t know me but I just wanted to say hello,” says a 50-ish man, clutching his drink and leaning in close. He recognized her — it’s Cassandra Fairbanks, isn’t it? — from Twitter.

Fairbanks nods and smiles graciously, albeit a little awkwardly. This happens to her a lot: People recognize her — her cascading blonde curls, aggressively pouty lips, sharply arched brows, the lyrics from a Bob Dylan song, tattooed on her collarbone, peeking out of her dress. This is what happens when you’re any kind of social media star, but especially a right-wing, unapologetic #MakeAmericaGreatAgain Donald Trump fan (“I love him,” she’s tweeted, on multiple occasions). People are kind of in awe that you actually exist.

She makes polite small talk with the man, taking long glugs of her cider. When he finally walks away, she exhales. “Twitter in real life,” she laughs uncomfortably, as if she likes the Twitter part more than the real life part.

Obama Once Said The American Dream Is To ‘Be Donald Trump’

The paper argued that black Americans should “shift away from rights rhetoric and towards the language of opportunity.”

A recently unearthed essay co-written by Barack Obama in 1991 stated that the American dream is to be Donald Trump.

Penned while the former president was a graduate student at Harvard Law — with the help of fellow classmate Robert Fisher — “Race and Rights Rhetoric” summed up the American mindset as “a continuing normative commitment to the ideals of individual freedom and mobility, values that extend far beyond the issue of race in the American mind.”

“The depth of this commitment may be summarily dismissed as the unfounded optimism of the average American—I may not be Donald Trump now, but just you wait; if I don’t make it, my children will.”

The excerpt of that previously unpublished law school paper found its way inside Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, the new 1,460-page biography written by Pulitzer Prize winning historian David Garrow that focuses on Obama’s early years.

Will Activist Judges Stop President Trump? | Daniel Horowitz and Stefan Molyneux (Video)

We are confronted with a jarring reality that the Left has succeeded in growing the power of the courts. President Barack Obama was successful in replacing roughly 30 percent of the district and appellate judges on the federal benches. The United States of America is now facing an unprecedented judicial time bomb, the likes of which the country has never previously witnessed. Daniel Horowitz joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss rising judicial activism in the United States, how President Donald Trump has been thwarted by unelected judges and what can be done to restore sovereignty from the tyrannical court system.

How The Trump Movement Is Killing Hollywood & The Media

This trend is affecting the entire anti-Trump leftist media such as CNN, The New York Times and even ESPN.

Anti-Trump celebrities and several media outlets have foolishly used their platform to spew hate for President Donald Trump. The decision to put politics ahead of the best interest of their business has been ethically misguided and flat out stupid. This move has isolated and offended millions of Americans and certain outlets are now paying a hefty price for this misstep. We’re currently witnessing the slow death of leftist Trump-hating media outlets ranging from Us Weekly, ESPN and CNN to the Hollywood careers of previously beloved stars such as Amy Schumer and Shia LaBeouf. As their burial plots are getting deeper, entertainers and members of the Trump friendly alternative media are flourishing, and this phenomenon will only grow.

Well over a month ago, a Hollywood insider told me there’s a big shift going on in the entertainment and media industry. The source said that the industry is looking to produce more patriotic and conservative projects to appeal to Trump supporters and more conservative news outlets will pop up. At the same time, the industry is going to distance themselves from divisive celebrities who have publicly trashed Trump in a vulgar manner such as Meryl Streep, Shia LaBeouf and Amy Schumer. As my source predicted, the backlash has begun. Schumer recently announced that she dropped out as the lead star in the “Barbie” movie due to alleged “scheduling conflicts”. LaBeouf ‘s – who started a hate-filled anti-Trump campaign with a livestream video titled He Will Not Divide Us – new thriller “Man Down” literally only sold one ticket at a U.K. box office earlier this month.

Trump Fires FBI Director James Comey

President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday, according to a statement from the White House.

In a statement from the press office, the White House said Trump acted on the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Borenstein.

“The FBI is one of our Nation’s most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement,” Trump said in a statement announcing Comey’s termination.

In a letter to the president Tuesday, Sessions wrote that after an evaluation, he had concluded that “a fresh start is needed at the leadership of the FBI.”

“It is essential that this Department of Justice clearly reaffirm its commitment to longstanding principles that ensure the integrity and fairness of federal investigations and prosecutions,” Sessions wrote. “The Director of the FBI must be someone who follows faithfully the rules and principles of the Department of Justice and who sets the right example for our law enforcement officials and others in the Department.”

In his own memorandum to the Attorney General Tuesday, Borenstein said the reputation and credibility of the FBI had “suffered substantial damage” in the last year. The deputy attorney general cited Comey’s handling of the investigation into former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s private email server as a “textbook example of what federal prosecutors and agents are taught not to do.”
