Media Caught Lying that Trump Administration Stalling New Harriet Tubman $20 Bill

H/T Godfather Politics.

The drive-by media will lie about the reasons the new twenty-dollar bill redesign so they can paint President Trump as a racist.

One of the left media’s recent attacks on President Donald Trump is that he is a racist for stalling the changeover of the $20 bill from a photo of President Andrew Jackson to a photo of famed former slave Harriet Tubman. But now, even an Obama operative is calling that attack fake news.

Just last Friday the New York Times ran a piece that is fraught with rampant speculation on Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s reasons for “delaying” the release of the new Tubman $20 bill.

It is true that the new $20 bill is not going to hit the streets any time soon. During his May appearance before the House Financial Services Committee, Sec. Mnuchin said the rollout would probably occur in 2028 with new designs being tested in 2026 or 2027.

But according to the Times, a new design has already been created and is being reviewed by engravers.

With that claim, the paper speculates that the delay is political, and one made not to upset the raaaaacist Donald Trump:

But the Treasury Department, which oversees the engraving bureau, decided that a new $20 bill would not be made public next year. Current and former department officials say Mr. Mnuchin chose the delay to avoid the possibility that Mr. Trump would cancel the plan outright and create even more controversy.

But according to Breitbart News, these claims are all fake news.

The U.S. Treasury Department is denying the Times’ story altogether. Senior Adviser for Public Affairs to the Secretary of the Treasury Monica Crowley said the existing timetable is “consistent” with the previous administration’s, adding that Mnuchin is focused solely on “security features and anti-counterfeiting measures.”

“The scheduled release (printing) of the $20 bill is on a timetable consistent with the previous administration,” Crowley said in a statement.

“The Secretary at this point is focused on security features and anti-counterfeiting measures related to the currency,” the statement continued. “The suggestion that the process is being delayed is completely erroneous.

Bureau of Engraving and Printing Director Len Olijar also told the media that any claims that the preparations for the new $20 bill could be done by 2020 are simply an idiotic claim.

In fact, Olija slams anyone who says the image of the new bill being thrown around by the media is anything close to official.

Here’s an early design of the Harriet Tubman $20 bill created by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Steven Mnuchin said designs would be delayed until 2026 and a future Treasury secretary will decide who’s on the face of the note. https://nyti.ms/2XL7gCH

Ojila noted that the mock-up of the new bill is just a “copy of an old Series note with the signatures of former officials, with a different image super-imposed on it.”

“It is not a new $20 note, as incorrectly stated by the New York Times, in any way, shape or form,” Olijar continued. “The facsimile contained no security features or offset printing included on currency notes.”

“There is nothing about that illustration that even begins to meet technical requirements for the next family of notes,” he concluded.

Finally, according to the liberal Washington Post, several former Obama appointees have told the media that claims that the new bill could be finished by 2020 were always silly pipe dreams.

The paper notes:

Another former government official appointed by Obama, speaking on the condition of anonymity to speak about internal government deliberations, also said the new $20 had always been scheduled for release toward the end of next decade. A current high-ranking government official appointed by Obama confirmed this account.

So, these attacks claiming Trump is quashing the Tubman bill because he is raaaacist are all just fake news. Indeed, the system is rolling along like always, and Trump’s people are doing nothing to impede the process.

Trump: Pelosi ‘Not a Racist’

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

After all of the trash, San Fran Nan has talked about President Trump I wonder what she thinks of his defense of her?

I promise you San Fran Nan will say something like he did not really mean he said.

 

President Donald Trump said during a Friday press appearance that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) “is not a racist,” responding to comments from freshman representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez implying that the speaker holds racist opinions.

“Cortez should treat Nancy Pelosi with respect. She should not be doing what she’s doing,” Trump said. “And I’ll tell you something about Nancy Pelosi that you know better than I do. She is not a racist, okay? She is not a racist. For them to call her a racist is a disgrace.”

Trump also mentioned Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.), saying that “if half of the things they’re saying about her are true, she shouldn’t even be in office.” He added that Ocasio-Cortez and Omar, as well as Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D., Mass.), are “being very disrespectful” to Pelosi.

Pelosi and the so-called “squad” of freshman congresswomen have been engaged in a feud since the four took office in January. The tensions snapped earlier this week, when Pelosi downplayed the four’s influence over Congress in an interview with the New York Times.

“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,” Pelosi said. “But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.”

Ocasio-Cortez shot back with a tweet criticizing Pelosi.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

@AOC

That public “whatever” is called public sentiment.

And wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country. https://twitter.com/joshjame/status/1147615395018354688

Pelosi later told House Democratic leaders not to criticize her in public.

“You got a complaint? You come and talk to me about it. But do not tweet about our members and expect us to think that that is just OK,” Pelosi said, according to the Hill.

Ocasio-Cortez doubled down on her pushback, implying that Pelosi’s rhetoric might be motivated by racial animus.

“When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm’s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,” Ocasio-Cortez told the Washington Post on Wednesday. “But the persistent singling out … it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful … the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.”
Rep. William Lacy Clay (D., Mo.), who is black, called out Ocasio-Cortez for her comments on Pelosi.
“You’re getting push back so you resort to using the race card?” he asked. “Unbelievable.”

BET’s Founder Loves Trump And Just Dropped A TRUTH BOMB On Dem

H/T Clash Daily.

How long before Robert Johnson gets taken to the liberal woodshed over his comments about President Trump?

It looks like Kanye isn’t the only wealthy black man who likes President Trump.

According to Forbes, Robert Johnson, one of the co-founders of Black Entertainment Television (BET), is the first black billionaire and was historically a Democrat supporter. He even backed Hillary’s run in 2016, which isn’t a surprise since he’s been on friendly terms with the Clintons for more than 30 years.

However, much like Kanye West, Johnson says that black people shouldn’t be shoe-horned into one worldview and they should think for themselves. Maybe voting as a massive block for one party isn’t in their best interests.

Get ready for CNN’s Don Lemon, the Dumbest Man On Television™, to denounce Bob Johnson as a “token black” and say that because he’s rich he doesn’t represent black people. (Of course, that would also mean that Beyoncé, Oprah, or Barack Obama don’t represent black people either, so go ahead. I’ll wait.)

Johnson met with President-elect Trump during the transition period and was encouraged by the plans laid out by the administration.

Watch Johnson talk about the meeting and says that the interests of African Americans shouldn’t be tied to one party.

It seems that Johnson is pretty pleased with the way that the Trump administration has been implementing said policies.

Black Entertainment Television founder and longtime Democrat Robert Johnson said in an interview that aired Tuesday that the Democratic Party has become too liberal to defeat President Trump in 2020, unless major changes are made.

“The party in my opinion, for me personally, has moved too far to the left,” Johnson told CNBC’s Hadley Gamble…

…Johnson also told CNBC that he thinks tax cuts clearly helped stimulate the economy, whereas partisan politics have gone too far.

Well, if the Democrat primaries are any indicator, the candidates are so focussed on appealing to where they think their base is, that they’ve gone very far left.

To recap, during the debates, Democrat candidates supported:

  • Reparations for slavery (which was abolished over 150 years ago)
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration (ie. Open Borders)
  • Government-funded healthcare for all illegal aliens
  • Single-payer healthcare for everyone
  • Ending private health insurance
  • Government-funded college tuition
  • Forced busing to combat de facto segregation
  • Transgender rights as the new civil rights movement
  • Identity politics
  • Government-funded Abortion on demand, without apology, even for biological men
  • Tax hikes!
  • Increasing regulation on everything
  • The Green New Deal which calls for banning cows, banning cars, and retrofitting every building in America.

That’s pretty far left.

When asked which of the 842 Democratic contenders he supports, he said he wasn’t keen on how far left the Democratic party is going.

“I think at the end of the day, if a Democrat is going to beat Trump, then that person, he or she, will have to move to the center and you can’t wait too long to do that,” Johnson said. “The message of some of the programs that Democrats are pushing are not resonating with the majority of the American people.”

When asked about how the country is doing in general, Johnson said that things are chugging along pretty well.

“I think the economy is doing great, and it’s particularly reaching populations that heretofore had very bad problems in terms of jobs and employments and the opportunities that come with employment,” Johnson said. “African-American unemployment is at its lowest level…  I give the president a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction that’s benefiting a large amount of Americans.”

Johnson did say that divisiveness is a problem, though.

“I think business people have more confidence in the way the economy is going,” Johnson said. “If business people are concerned about anything, it’s the clear, clear partisan politics that’s become very wicked and very mean.”

Johnson said he gives Trump an “A+” for the economy but added that divisive politics are “not helping America as a global nation.”

Watch:

So, what happens if the “reliable” black voter base for the Democrats decides to abandon them in 2020?

We just might find out…

If you start to add up Trump’s accomplishments — economic, domestic freedoms, foreign policy and more — the question of whether he will be remembered as one of the truly great presidents is becoming less of a wry joke and more of a serious consideration.

 

 

HUGE! Border Apprehensions, In Sharp DECLINE After President Trump’s Deal With Mexico (Details)

H/T Flag And Cross.

The Mexican Government is doing finally what the Delusional DemocRats will not do and that is help President Trump secure the border.

It seems that tariffs and the threat of tariffs work.

And that’s the way the cookie crumbles…

President Trump spoke. Mexico listened.

Even better? They are following through and keeping their word.

After 45 threatened America’s southern neighbor with increased tariffs, Mexico kowtowed and began doing a lot to stop the flood of illegals entering the United States.

Heck, they’ve even started guarding their own southern border.

Now, border apprehensions are on the decline.

Here’s the scoop

WASHINGTON — Border Patrol agents are on track to apprehend up to 25 percent fewer undocumented immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in June compared to May, acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan said at a press conference Friday.

In May, more than 144,000 immigrants were stopped crossing the border, including some presenting themselves legally at points of entry, the highest monthly total in 13 years.

The number of immigrants crossing into the Southwest United States typically drops off as temperatures heat up in the summer, but McAleenan said the decline was more than just seasonal.

15,000 troops are being sent to the U.S./Mexico border.

But they’re not American troops.

It’s looking like President Trump’s deal with America’s southern neighbor to try and stem the flow of illegal immigration into the U.S. is already working wonders.

Here’s what’s up…

Mexico has deployed almost 15,000 troops to the US-Mexico border, according to the country’s Secretary of Defense Luis Sandoval.

[…]

Approximately 2,000 National Guard members have already been deployed to Mexico’s southern border with Belize and Guatemala, he noted, adding to the 4,500 troops already spread across the area. Many migrants begin their journey in Central America and even further south, passing through Mexico on their way toward the United States.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is fed-up with illegal immigrants in the Lone Star state.

No mas, he says.

That’s why he’s sending 1,000 additional troops to the border.

His words:

I just deployed 1,000 National Guard Troops to the border.

This is needed because more than 45,000 people were apprehended crossing our border illegally in the last 3 weeks.

They come from 52 different countries.

Congress must do its job and fund border security.

Dershowitz: Mueller’s Critics Were Right; He’s Biased Against Trump, And He Just Proved It

H/T The Daily Wire.

Even Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz now sees the bias against President Trump Robert Meuller had.

In an op-ed for The Hill, Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz, who leans left but has frequently found himself arguing against President Trump’s critics, says he can no longer defend Robert Mueller as non-partisan after his controversial final statement as special counsel Wednesday.

Until today, I have defended Mueller against the accusations that he is a partisan,” Dershowitz writes. “I did not believe that he personally favored either the Democrats or the Republicans, or had a point of view on whether President Trump should be impeached. But I have now changed my mind. By putting his thumb, indeed his elbow, on the scale of justice in favor of impeachment based on obstruction of justice, Mueller has revealed his partisan bias. He also has distorted the critical role of a prosecutor in our justice system.”

Dershowitz, whose new book makes the case against Democrats moving forward with impeachment plans against Trump, begins by quoting the most eyebrow-raising of Mueller’s comments Wednesday: “If we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that.”

That statement, writes Dershowtiz, is “worse” than the infamous statement delivered by then-FBI Director James Comey regarding Hillary Clinton’s private email server in the summer of 2016, in which he said, “although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

In that moment, Comey went “beyond his responsibility to state whether there was sufficient evidence to indict Clinton,” says Dershowitz.

But what Mueller did, was actually more egregious, Dershowitz argues. “He went beyond the conclusion of his report and gave a political gift to Democrats in Congress who are seeking to institute impeachment proceedings against President Trump,” he writes. “By implying that President Trump might have committed obstruction of justice, Mueller effectively invited Democrats to institute impeachment proceedings.”

Dershowitz underscores that what Mueller did was something that “virtually everybody” agrees is out of bounds: he suggested that the subject might be guilty despite insufficient evidence to make the case. Anyone who tries to argue that somehow Mueller and the investigation is a “special case,” he stresses, is simply “wrong.”

Dershowitz concludes that the only logical explanation for Mueller’s actions is that he was deliberately attempting to “help Democrats in Congress and to encourage impeachment talk and action.”

In an op-ed for The Daily Wire Wednesday, Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro comes to the same conclusion. “Mueller’s investigation never should have included obstruction by Trump,” Shapiro writes in response to Mueller’s statement.

“Unlike the election interference investigation, which began as a counterintelligence investigation inside the FBI, the obstruction investigation began as a criminal investigation — and a criminal investigation that Mueller admits he never had the authority to conclude,” Shapiro argues. “He is a member of the executive branch. He is not an independent counsel. He is not a legislative investigator. A criminal investigation that cannot possibly result in charges is a conflict in terms. Mueller never should have agreed to such an investigation under the law, and Mueller’s own standard makes that clear.”

Border Agents Find “Recycled” Migrant Child

H/T Godfather Politics.

This is why children are being separated from the adults at the border.

Most of these children do not belong to the adult they crossed the border with.

President Trump, we need to Build the Damned Wall.

Customs and Border Protection reported at least one case of a child being “recycled.” That’s a child being used more than once in fraudulent cases.

Customs and Border Protection says it happened Wednesday in El Paso when the agent processing the child, and the adult they crossed the border with, had several inconsistencies in their story. That lead investigators to believe the child and the adult were not related. Investigators say agents were able to prove that the same minor had been recycled at least twice.

The practice of Cartels recycling children for their own nefarious purposes is a real human rights crisis on our border. Pelosi isn’t lifting a finger to help these poor children because it would mean admitting she was completely wrong.

According to the Democrat Party, there is no crisis on the border.

Trump: We’re Giving ‘Strong Considerations’ to Placing Illegal Immigrants In Sanctuary Cities

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

I think it is a real Damend good idea.

President Donald Trump tweeted Friday that his administration was giving “strong considerations” to release detained illegal immigrants into sanctuary cities, saying such a maneuver would make liberals who support open borders “very happy.”

His announcement followed a Thursday Washington Post report that the White House had considered such a proposal, which included statements given to the Post by the White House and Department of Homeland Security that such an idea had been considered and quickly rejected.

“Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only,” Trump wrote. “The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy – so this should make them very happy!”

The Post reported Trump’s White House had suggested moving detained illegal immigrants to the small- and mid-sized cities at least twice in the past six months, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D., Calif.) San Francisco congressional district among the possible locations. According to the report, acting Immigrations and Custom Enforcement (ICE) Director Matthew Albence opposed the idea when deputy director in November after senior Trump adviser Stephen Miller spoke to ICE about it.

Trump has been a strong critic of so-called “catch-and-release” laws; under the current system, detainees can go where they please after being processed and released but have to tell the government their address. With migrants crossing the border in increasing numbers, the U.S. asylum system is at risk of being overwhelmed.

“We have horrible, old-fashioned laws that are put in by the Democrats,” Trump said Friday at the White House. “We’re willing to change them. We could do it in 15 minutes, whether it’s catch-and-release or chain migration or any of them. The asylum laws are absolutely insane.”

Rep. Bennie Thompson (D., Miss.), the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, ripped Trump over his plan on Friday, according to The Hill.

“The fact that this idea was even considered—not once but twice—serves as a reminder that the Trump Administration’s reckless immigration agenda is not about keeping the country safe, but about partisan politics and wantonly inflicting cruelty,” he said in a statement.

Pelosi said such an idea was “disrespectful” and “unworthy of the presidency.”
