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.”

Trump creates a ‘minefield’ of legal problems for his own staff with plan for White House acceptance speech: report

Published

President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he might deliver his Republican National Convention speech from the White House. But legal experts who spoke with Bloomberg warned that might not be a good idea.

The publication described the proposal as "a minefield of problems for the staff charged with putting such an event together."

The Hatch Act forbids the use of government property and employees for political activities. Although the president and vice president are exempted from the federal law, their staff at the White House could face repercussions.

Controversial ‘Hookers for Jesus’ group to get more federal money after Bill Barr and Ivanka Trump announce new sex trafficking effort

Published

The Las Vegas-based group Hookers for Jesus has won a grant from the Justice Department less than a year after whistleblowers raised red flags about federal funds being awarded to the organization, Reuters reports.

The complaint from union officials says the group, which is run by a born-again Christian survivor of sex trafficking and operates a safe house for adult trafficking victims, got its grant due to political favoritism.

A previous Reuters report revealed that the group required residents of the safe house to go to church, complete Christian homework, and banned them from reading “secular magazines with articles, pictures, etc. that portray worldly views/advice on living, sex, clothing, makeup tips.” As Reuters points out, recipients of federal funds are not allowed to use the funds to promote religion.

Noted author accuses Jared Kushner of ‘planning last ditch try at disqualifying Biden ballots on election night’ with Barr’s blessing

A prolific author and speaker who has been described as a "Religious Right Defector" has issued a warning about the 2020 election that's getting noticed.

Frank Schaeffer was raised by a noted conservative Christian theologian who was at the forefront of right wing Christian political activism in the 1970's. But now he is a liberal Democrat and a cable news guest frequently invited to speak on the tactics of the religious right.

This week he's speaking out about what he says is the White House's plan to ensure Trump remains in the Oval Office.

In short, Schaeffer says Jared Kushner is planning an end run around the election process, and will appeal to the Supreme Court, as George W. Bush did in the 2000 election, to ensure Trump is installed in office for another four years.
