Trump Shutdown 2018

Government shutdown 2018

The federal government shut down went into effect five hours ago. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle said they would continue to try and come to a resolution to get government workers off furlough and back on the payroll. Pundits believe the problem would be solved by Monday morning.

 

The elephant in the room is DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is at the heart of the issue for lawmakers. Just after midnight on Saturday morning, the White House refused to negotiate and lawmakers are leveraged by the issue. A poll suggest Americans agree to protections for the children brought to this country by their parents, who know only America as home.

Barack Obama

On Thursday former president Barack Obama vowed to return to politics in the hopes to re-invigorate voters again. In Alabama he intends to stand behind Doug Jones a former prosecutor he is opposing racist Roy S. Moore, in the KKK corridor. He has also been taped to represent gubernatorial candidates in Virginia and New Jersey respectfully.

Candidates are concerned they would not be able to engage African American voters or inspire them to head to the polls on election day. Pundits are charging the black community with Clinton's loss in decisive states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin dooming her run for th White house last year.

Democrats across the country are hoping Mr. Obama can again get people excited about change, even after a lackluster two terms of senate rejections for the two term president.

John 8:44-45King James Version (KJV)

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

African Americans in this country has been made to bridle their tongues from the onset. The consequences has been injury , or even death. For nearly 400 years no one spoke out about the systematic wrongs that are apart of daily American life at least not in a sustained way. The status quo suggest do not talk about what our institutions are doing to you , just accept it.

The Media Did not Love MLK Until 1968

Media and the MLK

Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the United States of America is a sign post of change, in a place that change doesn't’t come easily. The change brought about due to the work of this man has benefited every single American and not just Blacks, immigrants and laborers. He historically said, during his most famous speech, “ I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal.’”

King, Jr. is a man renowned for not ‘kissing the ring.’ Many people who fight for righteousness know how difficult it is both then and now. Pushing against an established institution is difficult and many times one with a rebellious energy will be asked to acquiesce.

California judge William Alsup upheld put the mean ole Trumps plan to deport people who were brought to this country as children illegally by their parents. The sitting president in September rescinded the Deferred Action for childhood Arrivals put in place by former president Barack Obama. The program protects more than 800,000 people who only know the USA as home.

The San Francisco judge ordered the program stay in place until all litigation against the move continues. He specifically said, "the government is hereby ordered and enjoined, pending final judgment herein or other order, to maintain the DACA program on a nationwide basis on the same terms and conditions as were in effect before the rescission".

Op/Ed

We have seen a rash of unarmed African Americans shot down in the street by professional peace officers, who claimed they were fearful of her life. Only 14 days of 2017, American police didn't’t shot and kill a citizen. More than 1100 people were shot and killed, alarmingly 25 percent of people shot had mental illness and another 25 percent were Black people, despite Black’s making up just 13 percent of the US Population based on census reports.

There is nothing new about the above statistics. Tracing back the past few years the numbers appear mirror the previous years becoming and ever increasing trend. Another slap in the face is 99 percent of officers involved faced no criminal charges, basically there is no accountability.

Trump's Military disrespect Unpresidented

Trumps Military Dis

Scribe: N. Tru Bass

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

In the national sphere of presidential politics, political correctness has its place. There has never been a time that I have appreciated PC more than now, being forced to watch an informal political executive in the White House. Now, I know the importance of bridling your tongue.

Last week the sitting president poked at the leader of the North Korean government about having his nu clear button on his desk. This is my opinion is the greatest form of disrespect. The volunteers that guard the gates of this place should be given the utmost respect, because the job is not a great one and honor rarely enters their lives.

To instigate a national leader is a fools game, one you expect from a guy down the block at the bar but not a resident of the White House.
