Donald Trump Considering Pardon for Boxer Jack Johnson

“Sylvester Stallone called me with the story of heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson. His trials and tribulations were great, his life complex and controversial. Others have looked at this over the years, most thought it would be done, but yes, I am considering a Full Pardon!”

Donald Trump Tweet April 21, 2018

Jack Johnson was an African American world heavyweight boxing champion from 1908 to 1915. In the Jim Crow era he was Muhammad Ali on steroids, he married white women, and had numerous white girlfriends. Johnson flaunted the societal conventions of his day, and white boxers were terrified of meeting him in the ring. He was a racist`s worst nightmare and an affront to the Southern way of life.

America longed for a Great White Hope to take the tile away from the uppity nigger, but no such champion emerged.

The only way to stop Johnson was to arrest him on charges of violating the Mann Act – forbidding one to transport a woman across state lines for “immoral purposes.” Never mind that the woman Johnson transported over state lines was his girlfriend. Johnson was arrested twice, and served time in prison for violating the Mann Act.

Is Donald Trump serious about granting a full pardon to this African American icon? Trump values celebrity above everything else, and if Stallone recommends pardon for Johnson, he may very well follow through.

But if he does pardon Johnson, it won`t be because he wants to right a wrong that was done to a black historical figure. Trump may want to send a message to Michael Cohen and anybody else who might be considering flipping: If I pardon a nigger I never even heard of before Stallone told me about him, don`t you think I will pardon you? Don`t flip, I have your back!

Trump is a blatant racist, and if he pardons Johnson he won`t fool anyone. Let`s hope that the Great White Hope, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, will strip the presidency from him, so to speak.

Donald Trump and White Evangelicals: A Marriage Made in Hell

When Americans seek information about anything they google it, I googled “evangelicals” and these articles were in the top ten results:

White Evangelical Support for Trump Is Still Rock Solid – The Atlantic

Are these evangelicals ready to topple the idol of politics? – The Washington Post (The idol in the headline is a reference to Donald Trump)

The non-Trump evangelicals – Back to basics – The Economist

Trump`s Really Unpopular Outside the White Evangelical Pews – NYMag

Poll: white evangelical support for Trump is at an all-time high – Vox

Trump and the Evangelical Temptation – The Atlantic

Trumpism and white evangelicalism have become impossibly intertwined. White evangelicals have gone all in for Trump for immediate political gain, but their unholy alliance will damage their movement for generations to come.

I can`t emphasize enough that blind faith in Trump is a white phenomenon, non-white evangelicals aren`t enthralled by the orange pervert.

“A new survey released this week by PRRI, where I serve as the CEO, finds white evangelical support for Trump remains strikingly high, with 75 percent holding a favorable view of the president and only 22 percent holding an unfavorable view. This level of support far exceeds his favorability among all Americans, which is at 42 percent. Among all non-white evangelical Americans, Trump`s favorability is only 36 percent.”

The Atlantic

When the likes of a Jerry Falwell Jr. or a Franklin Graham make an outreach to minority communities their message is going to fall on deaf ears. A person of color isn`t going to want to hear the Gospel, or anything else, from a minister who supports a blatantly racist president.

Donald Trump and his sycophants in the white evangelical faith are anathema to people of color, whether they be evangelicals, Catholics, Jews, Muslims, or atheists.

White evangelicals have made a mockery of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, or to state it in a modern way: They have tarnished their brand name beyond redemption. As an Hispanic American when I hear white evangelicals praise Trump, I can`t help but think of Trump calling Mexican immigrants rapists.

We will never forgive Trump for his racism and misogyny, and we will never forgive white evangelicals for supporting such a moral degenerate.

Ted Cruz’s Time Magazine Tribute to Donald Trump is an Embarrassment

When Ted Cruz was asked to write a public tribute in Time magazine to the lowlife orange bully who mercilessly attacked him and his family during the 2016 presidential campaign, he would have politely declined if he had a shred of dignity.

But instead In his entry for the magazine`s 100 Most Influential People of 2018, Cruz lavished praise on his erstwhile enemy:

President Trump is a flash-bang grenade thrown into Washington by the forgotten men and women of America. The fact that his first year as Commander in Chief disoriented and distressed members of the media and political establishment is not a bug but a feature.

President Trump is doing what he was elected to do: disrupt the status quo. That scares the heck out of those who have controlled Washington for decades, but for millions of Americans, their confusion is great fun to watch.

Trump is a grenade thrown into Washington by a malevolent deity, a Joker if you will, who enjoys creating chaos and anarchy for its own sake. Trump isn`t just disrupting the media and the political establishment, he`s turning our society upside down.

Do we really need to be reminded that during the course of the 2016 campaign Trump christened the Texas senator “Lying Ted Cruz,” ridiculed his homely wife, and accused Cruz`s father of playing a role in the assassination of John Kennedy?

Where`s the Ted Cruz who called Trump a “sniveling coward,” “pathological liar” and a “big Loud New York bully” during the campaign?

It`s one thing to refrain from attacking the president for the sake of party loyalty, and it`s quite another to lavish praise on a moral degenerate.

Trump and Cruz represent the corruption of politicians in general, and Republicans in particular.

Teen Student Shows Up For Senior Prom in a Casket! Video!

“Alexandrea Clark arrived to her senior prom in a hearse on Saturday at Americus Sumter High School, and said there was a good message behind it.

Clark arrived to her senior prom in a hearse on Saturday at Americus Sumter High School. She took the short, five to 10-minute ride from the funeral home to school, which has since gone viral. She says her vision for her grand entrance was two years in the making.

She told 11Alive she did it in-part to encourage her classmates to not drink and drive.

`I was thinking about my class and how they are going to prom and doing the bad stuff after prom; like having drugs and doing all that,` she said.

11Alive.Com

High school seniors like to make a grand entrance by arriving for the senior prom in a limousine, but Alexandrea Clark stole the show by arriving in a hearse, and then being unloaded from the vehicle in a casket.

Clark wasn`t just trying to achieve viral infamy, she was sending a not so subtle message to her classmates: Don`t Drink and Drive!

Clark has been working for two years at the West Mortuary in Americus, and her dream since middle school is to become a funeral director.

She loves working in a mortuary, “because I love being around people and helping others.”

I think I missed my calling, unlike Clark I don`t like people at all, and working around dead people would be heaven on Earth.

When I croak I hope I will be embalmed by somebody who loves career like Clark. You Go Girl!

Stray Cat Scares Bejesus Out of Wanker

“A customer at a Tennessee garden center was caught on security camera jumping onto a store counter to avoid a stray cat that wandered in.

The security camera footage shows a man standing at the counter at Beasley`s Yard in Columbia when another customer walks in the door.

A stray cat darts into the door before it closes, causing the man at the counter to become startled and jump up onto the counter.”

UPI

Even the toughest dude is afraid of something, I for one will scream like a little girl if a spider falls on me.

But a man who jumps onto a store counter when a feline wanders in, should turn in his man card. He`s more of a pussycat than a human being, and I`m surprised the store owner didn`t knock him off the counter with a baseball bat.

But at least the store owner posted the video online, to the mortification of the coward, and the delight of millions of people all over the world.

Rep. Jim Jordan Tells Anderson Cooper He’s Never Heard Trump Lie

House Freedom Caucus co-founder Rep. Jim Jordan repeatedly insisted in an interview with CNN`s Anderson Cooper that he has never heard pathological liar President Donald Trump tell a fib.

Jordan reminds me of White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson who declared that the obscenely obese McDonald`s-loving Trump is in excellent physical and mental health, and the many white evangelical leaders who proclaim that the morally bankrupt billionaire is anointed of God to Make America Great Again.

It`s self-evident that Trump is a lying sack of shi*, and a moral reprobate. I would feel silly trying to convince anyone of this undeniable reality, but here`s a list of 2,000 lies Trump has uttered in a year:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2018/01/10/president-trump-has-made-more-than-2000-false-or-misleading-claims-over-355-days/?utm_term=.f59d3c822eae

It would be so refreshing if conservative politicians, right-leaning pundits and evangelical preachers simply stated: Trump may be a pussy-grabbing, mean-spirited short-fingered vulgarian, but we will endorse him as long as he continues to nominate conservative Supreme Court Justices, sign tax laws that benefit the wealthy, demonize immigrants and support the rest of our right-wing agenda.

But instead they pretend that he`s a paragon of virtue, and a statesman who will go down in history as the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.

I can`t wait until Special Counsel Robert Mueller completes his investigation and Trump is impeached and removed from office, maybe then the president`s enablers will stop singing his praises.

Little Girl Draws Crude Drawing of Her Beloved Kitty on Missing Pet Flyer

“A young girl is doing everything she can to find her missing cat.

Sierra Beckenstein received the kitty named Peppercorn on Easter, but last Wednesday the cat went missing.

She searched her neighborhood several times, and then decided to make fliers, however, she didn`t have any pictures of Peppercorn.

Sierra got creative and drew her cat, describing her as `skiddish` with green eyes.”

ABC 13

When a pet runs away from home, anxious pet owners, even children, post a missing pet poster on social media, including a photograph of the missing doggie or kitty.

Unfortunately, little 10-year-old Sierra didn`t have a photo of her missing cat, so she posted flyers on telephone poles in her neighborhood that included a drawing of her beloved pet.

Sierra, God bless her soul, has the drawing ability of a 5-year-old, I`ll be kind and describe her drawing as minimalist.

But obviously Sierra loves her cat, and I pray that despite the old-school approach to find her missing pet, the “skiddish” fur ball will find his way home.

Brush Your Cat At Least Once a Week

The average cat spends anywhere from 85% to 90% of his day sleeping, about 10% destroying your earthly possessions, and the rest of his time plotting to kill you.

Felines are independent and low-maintenance, and you may think that all you have to do is feed them and clean their litter box, but you still need to brush your kitty at least once a week.

Even though cats spend an inordinate amount of time grooming themselves, brushing your cat on a weekly basis helps remove loose hairs from his undercoat. If these loose hairs aren`t removed your cat will ingest them, and eventually expel them as hairballs.

Grooming your pet will also help you bond with him, he may think twice about scratching your furniture if you show him a little bit of attention.

Come on don`t be so lazy, you spend a good two minutes a day scratching your ass, you can make time to brush your kitty for a few minutes each week.

Two Men Arrested for Being Black at Starbucks in Trump’s America

I avoid Starbucks like the plague, I prefer not to patronize an establishment that`s a magnet for slackers, wankers, hipsters and other assorted millennial riff-raff.

Starbucks is forced to sell a cup of coffee for a small fortune, because their clientele will nurse a cup of Java for hours while they take advantage of the free Wi-Fi.

I`d rather go to McDonalds and buy coffee at a reasonable price and not be surrounded by earbud-wearing zombies.

I doubt that a white customer has ever been arrested for trespassing for lingering too long over a cup of coffee, or for asking to use the restroom before ordering.

But all hell broke loose at a Philadelphia Starbucks when two young African American men had the temerity to ask to use the restroom before ordering an overpriced cup of coffee. You`d think they has requested to use the bathroom to sell crack.

The video of the outrageous incident has gone viral after it was shared on Twitter with a caption stating that two black men were arrested simply for waiting on a friend at the coffee chain outlet.

The men were waiting for a friend, who`s a real estate agent, to discuss a real estate deal. But the Starbucks employees see two young black men chatting, and they assume that they are discussing a drug deal, and they call 911.

Unless I see a black person commit a crime right before my eyes I wouldn`t call the cops, because I know that a person of color doesn`t have a good chance of surviving any interaction with the police.

The black gentlemen remained remarkably calm while being surround by cops, and they were handcuffed and perp-walked out of Starbucks.

It`s a shame that this type of racist incident happens with alarming regularity, but thank God they didn`t become another hashtag.

Guide Dog Trained to Sniff Out Burger King Whoppers for Blind Owner

“On April 12, Burger King`s U.K. branch released a video to YouTube of a guide dog being successfully trained to smell out flame-grilled Whoppers for his visually impaired owner.

British hockey player Nathan Tree describes his golden retriever Flynn as his “best friend” who “saves my life every day.” Traveling often for his career on the ice, Tree was inspired to teach his pup to sniff out Burger King Whoppers, his “go-to food.”

After fifteen days of training, Flynn is successfully able to identify a flame-grilled Whopper in a blind scent test with another burger and fish and chips, just in time for Tree`s trip to Paris.”

Fox News

According to a video posted on YouTube by Burger King a guide dog has been successfully trained to smell out flame-grilled Whoppers for his blind owner.

Methinks this is one of the greatest whoppers ever told in an advertising campaign. I`m not blind, but I am lazy as hell, and it would be terrific if I could train my pooch to sniff out the closest Burger King, and bring me back a couple of Whoppers.

But I`m afraid my doggie would only bring back the wrappers, she`s pilfered a burger from my kitchen table on more than one occasion.

In the commercial Tree and Flynn walk through the City of Lights, and the canine successfully leads his owner to a Burger King.

Those type of miracles may only happen in commercials, but Flynn is an adorable pooch and those Whoppers look mighty tasty.
