Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan joins KKK in praise of Donald Trump: ‘I like what I’m looking at’

Proving that politics does indeed make strange bedfellows, the Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan joined with the Ku Klux Klan in expressing his admiration for 2016 GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

In remarks during the Nation’s annual Saviours’ Day sermon in Chicago, the leader of the black separatist group praised Trump for not accepting money from the “Jewish community,” reports The Hill.

“[Trump] is the only member who has stood in front of [the] Jewish community and said, ‘I don’t want your money,’” Farrakhan told his followers.

“Anytime a man can say to those who control the politics of America, ‘I don’t want your money,’ that means you can’t control me. And they cannot afford to give up control of the presidents of the United States.” Farrakhan explained before hastening to add, ““Not that I’m for Mr. Trump, but I like what I’m looking at.”

Trump has been battered for failing to immediately disavow the support of the Klan and other white supremacist organization, with former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney calling his delayed response “disgusting and disqualifying.”

Like Trump, Farrakhan is not a fan of the Bush family, blaming them for the 9/11 terrorist attack.

“They needed another Pearl Harbor,” Farrakhan stated. “They needed some event that was cataclysmic, that would make the American people rise up, ready for war. “They plotted a false flag operation and when a government is so rotten that they will kill innocent people to accomplish a political objective, you are not dealing with a human.”

“Now, they got into the [second] Bush administration and on 9/11 the Twin Towers went down. [Former President] George [W.] Bush and those devils, those Satans around him. They plotted 9/11. Ain’t no Muslim took control of that plane.”

‘Not supposed to be that way!’ Bitter Trump whines about Senate possibly letting John Bolton testify

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday whined about the Senate potentially letting former national security adviser John Bolton testify during his impeachment trial.

"They didn’t want John Bolton and others in the House," the president wrote on Twitter. "They were in too much of a rush. Now they want them all in the Senate. Not supposed to be that way!"

In reality, the House impeachment investigators tried to get Bolton to testify during their inquiry, but he refused to appear unless he got legal clearance to do so. However, Bolton has now offered to testify before the Senate even though he did not comply with House requests to do the same.

Ex-GOP impeachment manager ripped to shreds on CNN for ‘upside down’ defense of Trump’s conduct

Published

On CNN Monday, two veterans of the impeachment proceedings against President Bill Clinton clashed over whether President Donald Trump was guilty of impeachable offenses.

"My view is that the phrase that the president's lawyers included in their six-page answer over the weekend is absolutely ironclad, perfectly correct," said Bob Barr, a former House impeachment manager against Clinton. "The language in the Constitution says very clearly that the only basis on which a president can be impeached and removed from office is treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors. You have to have a crime. And no matter how much rhetoric you put around that to try and get around it, that is a fact, a legal fact, you have to have a crime."

Donald Trump and Ben Carson are destroying one of MLK’s most enduring legacies

Published

on

President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Fair Housing Act just days after the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King -- and President Donald Trump's Housing secretary wants to undo that legacy.

The 1968 law hasn't been able to undo the harm from government-sanctioned housing segregation, which still feeds today's wealth and racial inequality, but the Department of Housing and Urban Development wants to remove a protection for black owners who pay unfairly high property taxes, reported the New York Times.
