Oh, my. Last week was quite something following the bonfire lit by President Trump taking racist U.S. House Rep. Elijah Cummings to the wood shed over the ruination of yet another major city, Baltimore, MD run by Democrats. Of course, Cummings got his drawers in such a twist he forgot his own words:
Trump is a street fighter and oh, by the way – when was the last time we had a president willing to expose in blunt language the massive failure by Democrats destroying major cities with their socialist and Marxist policies? Not in my lifetime.
It’s been quite delicious to watch because what Trump hammered on in his tweets and microphone cannot be denied – except by slimy vermin like Cummings. I have been to Baltimore many times but not to the areas covered in this column. For visitors like me it was the fabulous Baltimore Aquarium located at the Inner Harbor along with some of the best seafood I’ve ever eaten.
For our fellow Americans who live outside the ‘tourist zones’, President Trump smacked down the screamers with the truth:
“President Donald Trump called Baltimore a “disgusting, rat and rodent invested” hellhole, a “corrupt mess” that “no human being” would want to live in. A lot of people who’ve never been to Baltimore claimed to be deeply offended by those remarks. One person who seemed to agree with them was former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh. Just last year, she said things were so bad you could “smell the rotting rats.”
“The mayor did not explain why she hadn’t cleaned things up. That footage of her remarks got almost no attention when it ran on a local news station. Neither did the recent story about Baltimore’s deputy police commissioner getting robbed at gunpoint by four thugs while out to dinner with his wife. People weren’t talking about that over dinner in Georgetown this weekend. If there’s one thing virtually everyone in Washington aggressively doesn’t care about, it’s Baltimore. It’s 40 miles and an entire world away. You could live your whole life in D.C. and never visit or think about Baltimore.”
Certainly not U.S. Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi or America hating fraud, Rep. Ilhan Omar, who were photographed over in Africa. Yep. August recess time. Who paid for this junket? Oh, it’s a fact- finding mission!
“Democrat Ilhan Omar (right) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (left) were pictured walking through the ‘Door of No Return’ where millions of Africans were shipped into a life of slavery in the United States.”
Did they bring up such historical, proven facts such as African kings and chiefs who sold their own people?
It’s Time to Face the Whole Truth About the Atlantic Slave Trade. The author: Mr. Stern taught African American history at the college level for a decade before becoming historian at the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum (1977–1999)—where he designed the museum’s first civil rights exhibit.
“A year later, Senegal’s president Abdoulaye Wade, “himself the descendant of generations of slave-owning [and slave-trading] African kings,” urged Europeans, Americans, and Africans to acknowledge publicly and teach openly about their shared responsibility for the Atlantic slave trade. 7 Wade’s remarks came months after the release of Adanggaman, by Ivory Coast director Roger Gnoan M’bala, “the first African film to look at African involvement in the slave trade with the West.”
“Several television productions of the last decade have acknowledged these facts: Africans in America (PBS, 1998), Wonders of the African World (PBS, 1999), and The African Trade (History Channel International, 2000). The latter begins with the visit by a group of African-Americans to the infamous slave castle and Door of No Return on Goree Island off the coast of Senegal. “Appalled by the cruelties of the Europeans,” the narrator relates, “the visitors become curious as to how Africans fell into their hands.”
“Their African guide admits that “this history is difficult to tell and hard to believe” but pulls no punches about African complicity in kidnapping and selling millions of African people: “All the tribes were involved in the slave trade—no exemptions.” The African-Americans were staggered: “So we really can’t blame the Europeans,” one declares, “We sold our own. It takes two.” Another visitor declares, “That’s right—money and greed.” The program concludes that “white guilt can never be erased”—but cautions that it is also important to remember that “black participation lets no one off the hook.” The entire piece is well worth the time to read. Now, who should be paying reparations?
Owning another human being and the era of slavery in this country IS horribly shameful but I had nothing to do with it nor would I have gone along with it back then. No way. Yet, I am considered a racist simply because I was born Caucasian.
Well, here’s a news flash for the race hustlers out there: My Primary Care doctor has black skin. That’s right. My former PC physician is of Mexican ancestry but, that dear lady and wonderful doctor moved across the state a few years ago so I had to find a new doctor. Was I a racist for having a doctor with skin a little darker than mine?
There are plenty of Caucasian physicians in my town. When I look for a doctor or specialist, I check their educational background, experience; whether they’ve been sued or had their license suspended for any reason. I do not check for skin color. As a matter of fact, there was no photo of my doctor on the pages I searched.
Dr. Johnson is a devout Christian man. Very smart, funny and actually listens to you. A great doctor. If I were a racist would I have a doctor whose skin color is black? Eat that Trump-haters.
Going back to Baltimore.
- “President Trump prompted outrage when he described Congressman Elijah Cummings Baltimore 7th District as a, ‘disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess’
- The president demanded to know where the $16 billion of Federal funding given to the city had gone
- The city itself cannot account for the millions that have poured into its coffers, according to Baltimore’s most recent audit analyzed by DailyMail.com
- The 2018 audit notes numerous ‘significant deficiencies’ and ‘material weaknesses’ across almost every department
- It found a consistent lack of any internal tracking of funds
- In these disturbing photos, DailyMail.com captures the grim living conditions as we spoke to demoralized residents
- ‘I have a three-year-old son who lives with his mother in Pennsylvania,’ Smoove told us. ‘That’s how I want it. If he was here he’d be dead before he was 21’
- ‘Trump’s words were true, Smoove admitted, ‘I could accept them if they came from anybody but him’ (My comment: Oh, so the truth is easier to swallow as long as it doesn’t come from Donald Trump. Why? Because the media, black politicians, athletes, rappers and the Hollywood crowd have convinced too many black Americans Trump is a racist.)
- Smoove, 24, a self-professed ‘pharmacist’ in Gilmore Homes housing projects. (Huh? And what prescriptions would he be filling in the projects?)
- Diane has lived in Gilmore Homes all her life. The area is consistently ranked among Baltimore’s top three most dangerous housing complexes
- According to Diane, ‘What Trump said is true! Look around. It’s the pit of hell’
What everyone is overlooking is the fact that Congress had no constitutional authority to ‘give’ any grant money to the city of Baltimore regardless of who represents that district in Congress.
Art. 1, Sec. 8 of the U.S. Constitution was written to address issues that were a common necessity for the new government and states.
Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
To borrow money on the credit of the United States; To regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes; To establish a uniform rule of naturalization, and uniform laws on the subject of bankruptcies throughout the United States;
To coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures; To provide for the punishment of counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States;
To establish post offices and post roads; To promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing for limited times to authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries;
To constitute tribunals inferior to the Supreme Court; To define and punish piracies and felonies committed on the high seas, and offenses against the law of nations; To declare war, grant letters of marque and reprisal, and make rules concerning captures on land and water;
To raise and support armies, but no appropriation of money to that use shall be for a longer term than two years; To provide and maintain a navy; To make rules for the government and regulation of the land and naval forces; To provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions;
To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the militia, and for governing such part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States, reserving to the states respectively, the appointment of the officers, and the authority of training the militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;
To exercise exclusive legislation in all cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular states, and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of the government of the United States, and to exercise like authority over all places purchased by the consent of the legislature of the state in which the same shall be, for the erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, dockyards, and other needful buildings;–And
To make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the government of the United States, or in any department or officer thereof. [End]
To bring uniformity in areas like currency, trade, national security, war, peace and so forth. There is NOTHING in Art. 1, Sec. 8 giving Congress the authority to steal the fruits of your labor to give to any city for their internal affairs, business or existence. Congress has NO authority to act as a bank, lend money to private corporations, banks or student loans.
Democrats always try to use the General Welfare Clause of the U.S. Constitution – as well as RINOs and know-nothings like Senatorette Joni Ernst – to justify voting for unconstitutional spending bills.
“The limits on federal power to legislate for the “general welfare” remains, to this date, undefined and presumably, boundless The question that begs an answer is, “if the framers of our Constitution, who labored so resolutely in Philadelphia that torridly hot summer in 1787 intended the powers of Congress to have no boundaries, why did they bother to enumerate seventeen?” James Madison, when asked if the “general welfare” clause was a grant of power, replied in 1792, in a letter to Henry Lee, 
If not only the means but the objects are unlimited, the parchment [the Constitution] should be thrown into the fire at once.
“I consider the foundation of the [Federal] Constitution as laid on this ground: That “all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people.” [10th Amendment] To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specifically drawn around the powers of Congress is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition.” –Thomas Jefferson: Opinion on National Bank, 1791. ME 3:146
“[An] act of the Congress of the United States… which assumes powers… not delegated by the Constitution, is not law, but is altogether void and of no force.” –Thomas Jefferson: Draft Kentucky Resolutions, 1798. ME 17:383
Go look at this chart showing HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF BORROWED dollars ‘given’ in grants in violation of the Constitution. Baltimore’s 30,000 Public Employees Cost Taxpayers $2 Billion But Can’t Save Their Own City
Why do Americans think we’re close to $23 TRILLION unpayable dollars in debt? Because the U.S. Congress – those reps and senators who voted to ‘give’ $16 BILLION BORROWED dollars for local problems in the City of Baltimore did so in violation of their oath of office.
Drugs, crime, infrastructure decay in the City of Baltimore are NOT federal problems. They are terrible by-products of a broken society fed by corrupt, inept politicians. In this case Democrats have ruled that city for a long, long time. Just like sh*holes like LA, SF and NYC. I’m sorry, folks but the truth is there for all to see.
Sean Hannity covered this on his radio show last week. Out of five high schools, not a single student was math proficient. Out of 13 high schools (If memory serves me) not a single student was math and English proficient. Hannity wanted to know how that was possible?
I’ll tell you. Some is money. It’s true there has and still is disparity in money doled out to school districts by states. Slowly but surely that is being fixed. Yes, there are teachers who shouldn’t even be in a classroom because they are badly under educated. That is the responsibility of your local school board, not Congress.
But you know what? It all starts at home with mom and dad. Not mom sucking on a crack pipe or dad (if one can even be found) hanging on the street corner wearing jeans so low you can see his butt-crack. Hanging with other illiterates either doing or dealing drugs or drunks.
No amount of money for schools can educate a child who doesn’t want to learn, period. The desire to learn must come early from those that child loves: Mom and dad who should be role models. Not mom birthing her ninth child on the taxpayer’s dime and making welfare a way of life. Is it any wonder millions of children in this country end up having no hope by the time they reach intermediate school?
Who feeds black Americans propaganda making them think they will never amount to much without mother government taking care of them from birth to death? Democrat politicians who NEED to keep black Americans on the plantation for votes.
Ever read Dr. Ben Carson’s personal history and how his poor mother ended up raising him and his brother by working three jobs at a time? His poor mother not just financially; the man she married turned out to be a bigamist. But, Dr. Carson’s mother, despite the entire deck stacked against her, taught her sons that anything is possible if you work hard enough.
So her son went on to become a fine man, a world re-nouned neurosurgeon. Dr. Carson didn’t have an easy time of it but anything worth having doesn’t come without challenges, determination and courage. That’s why political whores like Cummings and other prominent Democrats and too many in the Hollywood crowd hate Dr. Ben Carson.
Thanks to people like him, Candace Owens, Mychal Massie and other freedom-loving Americans who happen to be black are getting their message out there. You can rise above your circumstances and be successful at whatever you choose to do.
Before drugs, rap “music” and social media – black America in the 1950s. Churches played a big role back then. Sadly, too many churches all across the country now are nothing but PC social gatherings.
Today these are role models for young girls? Beyonce at a movie opening for children, The Lion King. From the side you can clearly see her pubic area. In another dress for same movie opening, only thing missing is the nipple. Skank.
Nicki Minaj. Singer who apparently can’t sell her tunes unless dressed like a stripper. Unlike some of the greatest black female singers ever like Etta James, Nina Simone, Mahalia Jackson, Dinah Washington and many more who didn’t perform nearly naked on stage. They had real class.
The bottom line is the City of Baltimore’s elected officials and her people are responsible for cleaning up their city. Not me, not a hairdresser in Anchorage, Alaska or the local mechanic in Orlando, Florida. Congress has no right to steal the fruits of our labor to fund or ‘grant’ any city. $16 BILLION borrowed dollars pissed down the rat-hole (pun intended) that never should have been thrown at Baltimore except for votes.
One can hope the people of Baltimore, regardless of skin color or ethnicity, wake up and vote out the current crop of scoundrels and take back their city.
