Comedian burns Steve Mnuchin for lying they couldn’t put Harriet Tubman on the $20 due to ‘security issue’

Published

on

The claim that Harriet Tubman’s $20 bill rollout must be delayed for security reasons is bunk, according to one stand-up comedian.

“It’s definitely not about security,” Pete Dominick said to MSNBC’s Al Sharpton Sunday. “They can’t get anything done at all. This is absolutely to poke the eye of President [Barack] Obama. It’s obviously discrimination. It’s obviously a hand-out to white supremacists who support him.”

He said that the United States still has not properly accounted for the years our ancestors kidnapped people of color for slavery.

Noting that there is still not a monument to commemorate the forced slavery of people of color, Dominick said that there could be a holiday that celebrates the Abolitionist Movement and denounces racism.

He noted that there are people who have purchased stamps to stamp a photo of Harriet Tubman over former President Andrew Jackson’s face.

When Sharpton spoke to a Republican strategist, he wondered why Republicans were doing things like this when they indicated they wanted to do better outreach to people of color.

“Well, it’s because he has people like Stephen Miller in the White House advising him,” Rina Shah said.

First daughter and senior White House advisor Ivanka Trump was mercilessly ridiculed on Tuesday after praising the so-called "peace plan" for the Middle East created by her husband, Jared Kushner.

The couple, known as Javanka, have been highly criticized for having had no government experience prior to joining the administration and needing presidential intervention after being unable to obtain security clearances.

Ivanka tweeted a quote from her husband at the "Peace to Prosperity workshop today in Bahrain" and urged her Twitter followers to watch his full speech.

Kushner's plan was rejected by the Palestinians before even being released.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson attacks rape survivors for not reporting their rapes promptly enough

Published

on

On Tuesday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson laid into advice columnist E. Jean Carroll, who made national news by alleging President Donald Trump forced himself on her in a department store in the 90s.

According to Carlson and his guest, The Diversity Delusion author Heather MacDonald, if her allegation is true, then Carroll herself is a danger to the public, for having not filed a police report.

"I can't get past a simple fact," said Carlson. "Since rape is a real thing, it is an act of violence, and there's actually quite a bit of it in the United States — some of it is downplayed by the way as you well know — I can't get over the fact that people accuse rape 25 years or 20 years after the fact. If you are raped, which is a felony, don't you have an obligation to the rest of our society to put that person behind bars, to protect the rest of your neighbors? Don't you?"

The Navy accidentally nominated a convicted child sex predator to be a future department head

Published

on

On Tuesday, the Navy Times reported that Lt. j.g. Michael D. McNeil was nominated, along with several other junior service officers, as eligible to be a future department head by the Navy Personnel Command.

This would be somewhat surprising, given that McNeil is currently serving a 10-year sentence in federal prison in Texarkana, Texas, for soliciting sex from a 12-year-old deaf girl.

The reason why McNeil was listed as under consideration is that the Navy had not yet updated his records with the "civil action report" noting his conviction, which was handed down in March. Navy records still listed him as active duty and assigned to the guided-missile destroyer Lassen when the list was drafted.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
