Obama appoints lawyer for cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal to civil rights commission

Image result for Debo AdegbileIn a move sure to fray his relations with law enforcement, President Obama on Thursday appointed Debo Adegbile, former lawyer for convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, to a six-year post on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.

Mr. Adegbile worked at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc., when he represented Abu Jamal in the appeal of his conviction and death sentencing in the notorious 1981 shooting death of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. Abu-Jamal’s sentence was reduced to life in prison.

The case prompted the Senate to reject Mr. Adegbile’s nomination in 2014 when Mr. Obama appointed him to lead the Justice Department’s office on civil rights. Some Democrats joining Republicans in voting down the selection at that time.

Liberals praised the latest nomination. The progressive Center for American Progress cited Mr. Adegbile’s “work on employment, housing discrimination, criminal justice, and voting rights.”

Mr. Obama also appointed Catherine Lhamon, assistant secretary for civil rights at the Education Department, to a six-year seat on the Commission on Civil Rights. She drew the ire of GOP lawmakers in 2011 for issuing a “dear colleague” letter to colleges advising them to lower their standards for judging students accused of sexual harassment of bullying, touching off a dispute in Congress over the legal authority of the letter.

CAP praised both appointees as “individuals with a long and proven history of commitment to the advancement civil rights.”

Another loser to the one he added in 2011:

In January 2011, President Barack Obama appointed Martin R. Castro as Chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (USCCR)

Castro's statement, which is on page 29 of the report, opens with a quote attributed to Founding Father and former President John Adams.

It reads: "The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion."

All this BS Obama criminal loving will soon come to a complete halt.

Barack Obama is a treasonous, Marxist, Muslim, bastard who is hell bent on the destruction of America!  He should have been impeached years ago!  His current residence along with all of his ilk should be Fort Leavenworth Federal Prison!  His assignment, make big rocks into pebbles for the rest of his pathetic life!

Shortly after President elect Trump stacks the Supreme court with constitutional justices, the civil rights department needs to get shut down, eliminated. We are all equal according to the constitution, we don't need that department. It has created division and racism. The Left have used it as a tool to create division.

Trump will replace him with Sheriff Joe in 30 days.

He stops at nothing to shame Americans.

Can Trump reverse this?

This IS Progressive and Obama's version of HOPE or HOPE AND CHANGE?????????

NOW WE ALL KNOW WHY THE DEMOCRAT PARTY WAS SO SOUNDLY THRASHED IN THE 2010 MID TERM and WHY THE DEMO'S LOST MORE SEATS IN CONGRESS AND REPRESENTATIVES AS WELL AS SENATE SEATS IN 2012, & 2014 AND MOST OF ALL WHY THEY WERE CLOBBERED IN 2016.

Illegal 'immigrants' are being 're-located' in mostly Republican voting areas within the liberal states to make sure that the Democrats & the left have the 'upper-hand' come time for the next voting cycle

The GOOD NEWS for We The People is that 'voters who have not voted in years turned out and VOTED for Donald J. Trump to be OUR next President. WE THE PEOPLE WON!!!! WITH PRESIDENT-ELECT DONALD J. TRUMP

You are understanding what the Left have been doing for sometime now. Here in eastern Washington state, i noticed sometime ago that there are hundreds of thousand of illegals here in the past few years. At the county fair each year on free night (middle of the week) the place is packed with Hispanics. 80-85% of the people that come that night are Hispanics many are illegals who don't speak any English. Mostly women with their children. What's interesting is most of their children are mostly little girls, like 80-85% are (several) daughters per family-future breeders. I hadn't seen anything like that before. Usually you see perhaps 60% of the children are females, but it's more like 80-85% female Hispanic children. What is happening is you many high school white boys & some girls are hooking up sexually with these Hispanics girls and boys and so the future of the country is going to change. They intend to take over eventually voting Hispanics into public office like in Cali. at some point in the future. It's been happening here. These are good people, an yet, the country is changing against the legal citizens wishes.

Put a round in it before you loser the country.

I wish I could say I was surprised but anything this P'resident does is no longer a surprise. The only real surprise is that we even have a country left after Obama , the Libs , the RINOs and the immigrants got through with us. What our elected officials in BOTH political parties have done to us is despicable and they still get re-elected !  Trump is our last chance to save what's left of America, it's not going to be easy, the real battle starts the day he becomes President. That is when he and the Titans of industry and  the top dogs in other fields move into Washington, these people are not losers. It's not going to be pretty and it may even be somewhat illegal (what's new ?) but his chosen leaders will kick ass and steamroller all who try to stop them from saving America. FINALLY ! A President who really does put America first ! What a concept, we haven't seen this since 5 Presidents ago !

Trump National Diversity Coalition's Bruce LeVell: President’s Support Among Blacks, Hispanics Will ‘More Than Double’ In 2020

Bruce LeVell, the National Diversity Coalition for Trump executive director, said on Sunday evening he predicts President Donald Trump will win even higher levels of support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020 than he did in 2016.

“Pastor Darrell Scott is the CEO, we started this back in 2015,” LeVell said on Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel on Sunday evening about the National Diversity Coalition for Trump. “It is the largest diversity coalition platform in history for a Republican candidate, not to mention a sitting president, and there are millions of guests that sign on and sign up that are part of this. If you look on the website, you see African Americans for Trump, Haitian Americans for Trump, Korean Americans for Trump, Chinese Americans for Trump, Hispanic Americans for Trump–all very large. They all stand in one agreement that they believe in this great president and that he is here for all and wants everyone to be successful. It’s pretty flattering, honestly, to be a part of this. It just totally debunks everything that they try to make him out to be–a racist, which he’s not. The numbers prove that he’s not. You can see where he’s rising in terms of the Hispanic vote, and the African American vote. It’s just really going to be mind-boggling on the next go-around. I guarantee it. It’s going to more than double because people are happy; they’re working.”

LeVell, when asked for his rationale on why he thinks Trump’s support in 2020 among blacks and Hispanics will more than double, attributed it to the results President Trump has gotten for those communities.

“Sometimes you have to speak things into existence,” LeVell said. “The president said, ‘What do you have to lose?’ That challenge, especially in the underserved communities, well, yeah, what do we have to lose? We tried it this way for 30 or 40 years. Some of these cities and municipalities were under Democrat rule, as you might say, for many years, and then you say, ‘You know what? Let’s make the ask.’ You know, the president made the ask. Sometimes, you just have to ask, ‘Hey, what do you got to lose? Try this.’ Let’s try one of the biggest, strongest bills that he’s signed, that was so beneficial, called the Opportunity Zones. This bill right here alone is bringing a lifeline to some of these underserved communities and is projected to bring in over hundreds of billions of dollars in these underserved communities, which are predominantly African American communities. For example, in Atlanta, there are minority business contractors teaming up with other business contractors building a hotel in an Opportunity Zone. This community has just been blighted for God knows how long. These are the things that people are starting to see–the light at the end of the tunnel. Here’s a businessman that understands what I call a balance sheet, a P & L sheet of profit and loss. The president wants to see the country profitable, not losses. So that’s what he does. He says, ‘Okay, where can we improve? What can we do?’”

He continued, “Like I said earlier, I think the Opportunity Zones is a sleeper; it has so many moving parts to it where you can sell a piece of property for $2 million and instead of paying that very high capital gains [tax] you can identify those funds over the zone, and then, you can build another little hotel or a shopping center for economic empowerment for that community. So there’s so many initiatives out there for people of color, like myself, who see opportunities. You know, how about this? You live in a black community under the Trump administration, you walk down the street and say, ‘Wow, 98 percent who live in the community are African American,’ and you say, ‘Why don’t you build that grocery store? Why don’t you build that gas station?’ Wow, you’re right. I can. The programs that are out there, like in the Small Business Administration, you get as little as five or ten percent down, and they can maturize it to 30 years, and if you’re a veteran, they waive the fees. There are so many tools out there, and you saw the president when he adjusted Dodd-Frank last year; that was a terrible, terrible deal they did in 2009 and 2010 that literally almost just choked and killed the business community because of the Dodd-Frank, going in there and regulating these small community banks, which were life support for these small communities especially in the African American community, where he readjusted that last year and made it work. These are the things this president understands that as a businessman he can bring his lifelong talents to the White House and can help America. The biggest thing about this is, remember, the president is not beholden to any special interest group; this is a very key part of this conversation right here because he can go in there and govern without having to worry about paying back favors.”

According to NBC News analysis in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, Trump actually outperformed now-Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT)–then the former governor of Massachusetts–in the 2012 election when it came to both the black and Hispanic communities.

“Trump claimed 29 percent of the Hispanic vote on Tuesday, compared to Romney’s 27 percent in 2012,” NBC News wrote. “With blacks, exit polls show Trump claimed 8 percent of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6 percent.”

If Trump is able to double support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020, as LeVell predicts he will, no Democrat will stand even close to a chance of defeating him; the margins they would need for victories in a number of states would be significantly eroded. Perhaps that is why the Democrats are now attempting to paint Trump as a racist amid his battle with the so-called “Squad” of socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasi0-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). The new faces of the Democrat Party, the “Squad,” in other words, is worried they may lose the election in 2020 if LeVell and other Trump backers are right. But the scurrilous accusations of racism for quick political gains, which have also been leveled at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Joe Biden in recent weeks, LeVell warns, may undermine the ability to stand up to actual racism where it exists.

“At first, it was kind of bizarre,” LeVell, who knows Trump well and has known him prior to his run for president, said of the false racism accusations. “Now, it’s just plainly un-American. It’s so anti-patriotic. You know, the interesting thing about it for me as a black conservative or Republican–I like to define myself as a Frederick Douglass Republican–most of the name-calling comes from people who actually look like me, 90 percent of it. It’s bizarre, and it’s because our thinking process is not lining up with theirs. It’s the only playbook they have, like I said earlier, which is, ‘Let’s just use the race card.’

LeVell went on to say, “Getting back to the president, I’ve been around him–I was just with him at the rally–in very intimate settings, behind the scenes at the rally, and you’re right: I’ve traveled with him, been on the plane with him. I’ve been in private meetings with him. I’ve talked with him, and you know–let me tell you something: I’m 55 years old, I’ve lived my whole life in the South, and I’m world-traveled. Let me tell you: I know racism when I see it. This man is nowhere near being a racist. It’s so sad because it does such a disservice to this great nation that they would throw that name and throw those words around. I mean, you have people calling Biden racist. They’re calling Pelosi racist. They’re calling the dog-catcher racist because he impounded the black dog instead of the white dog. Come on. What’s next? You know, it’s kind of sad because it’s pretty much watered down things that are legitimate, to where people are just going to get so numb with it, and people are just being like, ‘Wow, are you serious?’”
