    “Obama, who wouldn’t win the White House for another three years, recalled at the time the inspiration he drew from Johnson’s magazines.

    “When I was growing up, basically the only black men on television were criminals or Flip Wilson dressed in drag as a character called Geraldine,” the future president said in 2005.”
    “Stories in Ebony and Jet helped Obama and others aspire to lofty positions, he said.

    “It gave you a sense that strong, capable black men were out there and you didn’t have to assume that your fate was automatically working in some menial job or getting involved in crime,” Obama said.”

        And as always the media won’t stand up to him. They will stand there and listen to him tell lie after lie and won’t say a word to correct him. But if it was Barack Obama they would call him a lie to his face.

      Because the MSM has been an ally of the Trump administration. They play along and get along to continue covering Trump and getting ratings based on his outrageous outbursts. It’s as simple as that. They’re never going to call out his lies.

    The breakthrough image was captured by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), a network of eight radio telescopes spanning locations from Antarctica to Spain and Chile, in an effort involving more than 200 scientists…When observations were launched in 2017, the EHT had two primary targets. First was Sagittarius A*, the black hole at the centre of the Milky Way, which has a mass of about four million suns. The second target, which yielded the image, was a supermassive black hole in the galaxy M87, into which the equivalent of six billion suns of light and matter has disappeared. The success of the project hinged on clear skies on several continents simultaneously and exquisite coordination between the eight far-flung teams. Observations at the different sites were coordinated using atomic clocks, called hydrogen masers, accurate to within one second every 100 million years. And, on one night in 2017, everything came together. “We got super lucky, the weather was perfect.”
    “At the event horizon, light is bent in a perfect loop around the black hole,
    meaning if you stood there you would be able to see the back of your own head.”
    = 💖 to infinity!

    House Dems preparing a measure to:
    “1. Increase federal resources at border entry points for processing refugees, counseling children and treating people needing medical care.
    2. Create centers in Central America where asylum applications could be processed, and
    3. Provide aid to reduce poverty and violence in the region so fewer people would flee.”

    President Trump reportedly wondered during a visit to Mount Vernon last year why George Washington did not name his historic compound after himself. “If he was smart, he would’ve put his name on it” … “You’ve got to put your name on stuff or no one remembers you,” he reportedly continued. … http://hill.cm/omt5I0G

    You can not trust William Barr, he is a Trump puppet, who got the job to be Trump’s Roy Cohn, to do Trump’s dirty work. It is ashame when you can not trust the Attorney General.

    Senator Van Hollen to Barr: “But the thing about it is, you put your conclusion out there. And now you refuse to talk about any basis of your conclusion. I’m not asking for you what is in the report. I’m asking you how you — last question. Can you assure us that the key factual evidence relevant to charges of obstruction of justice will be included in the public report?”
    (Easley): “Attorney General Barr created a narrative where he weaved his own opinions in with a dash of Mueller’s findings.
    Barr testified today that he would redact all sections of the Mueller report, so the American people aren’t going to get to see the full report. What Sen. Van Hollen did was show that Trump was “exonerated” on the basis of Barr’s opinion, not Mueller’s facts.”

    • April 10, 2019 at 2:48 pm

      Barr is part of the Trump mafia.
      What we’re hearing is a lot of blah blah blah words from would-be consigliere Barr.
      Not interested in ANYTHING Barr has doctored or coughed up.
      Just the facts = Just the Mueller report.

    Donald Dodo says he is running the United States Department of Homeland Security by himself:
    “Stephen is an excellent guy. He’s a wonderful person. People don’t know him . . . He’s been with me from the beginning. He’s a brilliant man. And frankly, there’s only one person that’s running it. You know who that is? It’s me.”

  47. April 10, 2019 at 7:38 pm

    Trump has a stooge…in charge of Homeland Security..a stooge in charge of the DOJ…he controls the military…we are on very thin ice….TRUP is breaking the law everyday….

    Trump International Hotel and Tower in Vancouver investigated since 2018:
    “And his company has profited even more from anonymous purchases since Trump ran for president:
    Some 70% of the Trump Organization’s sales have gone to anonymous shell companies since Trump won the Republican nomination in 2016.
    The ability to anonymously purchase Trump-branded units has raised serious ethical concerns about both national security weaknesses and the potential for undue influence over a sitting president.
    But while much attention surrounding Trump’s foreign interests has focused on other projects — including allegations of drug-running at the Panama property, or deals with post-Soviet kleptocrats in Azerbaijan — the pending legislation in Vancouver will likely offer extraordinary insight into who is investing in the president’s brand while choosing to remain anonymous.”

      I know that prior to the election you implored the still living Presidents to speak out and warn Americans….

      although i knew what a man Trump was and what the power of the Presidency would do..I did not expect the decimation of the Executive Branch.i suppose i thought that GOP had some love of country…but i was wrong…they have no soul…they are the reason why Trump still stands…they aid and abet him at every turn…they are as much to blame as Trump…more so..
