Black caucus rich men woke women … The memory lingers with John Lewis walking across the street through the Tea Party crowd in DC, alongside Nancy Pansy and her giant toy gavel weighing almost as much as her; all of them guffawing themselves at having lied their way through OBO#44’s “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan; if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor; we have to pass it first before we know what’s in it”.
No one in the crowd was bothering them or stopping them, and there was no change of expression from the politicians’ nasty smirks… “Outta the way there, get outta the way !!”
…but then afterward, came that claim of (gasp! Is it EVER anything else?) the dreaded N-word supposedly coming from these middle-class and middle-aged, ordinary folks, out in the streets for the first time, protesting about the government taking over such a huge part of our economy,
Everyone knew it was BS, and the dims knew that no one with any power had the nerve to call out Lewis on his lie. Well then, not to speak ill of the dead, but to set the record straight without causing WWIII, yours truly is doing just that.
Lewis’s vitriolic partisan politics ought not be forgotten. Nor should his involvement in pushing the Russia collusion hoax and the coup against Trump. And where civil rights are concerned? Let’s not forget how Lewis used his status as a civil rights icon to falsely accuse his political opponents of the dreaded racism meme.
By all means, let’s remember the dead for the good they’ve done and forgive them for the bad. It’s right and proper to do so. But for the sake of posterity, let’s not falsify the truth of their record; the Black Lives Matter mob are already doing that.
They all happen to be cut from the same Black caucus cloth. Elijah Cummings, OBO#44, Cory Booker, Maxine Waters, Kamala Harris as well as John Lewis, all took the easy way out to find fame and fortune. Not one of them throughout their entire career, has had the intelligence level nor an emotional maturity to represent anyone at all. They were, still are, gypsies, tramps, thieves and liars, while mixing it up with Nancy Pansy’s illegal drug distribution business. We all know that, right? Yours truly isn’t impressed by any of them, taking heart from the likes of Candace Owens and many other up-and-comers of her generation.
Now THAT’s a Black caucus woke woman!
Daniel Greenfield, FrontPageMag: ‘Rep John Lewis Raised Millions while his District Starved’…
A lot of people have died in Georgia’s 5th congressional district over the summer. Murders are up 240% in Atlanta in July. The victims include an 80-year-old retired mechanic and an 8-year-old girl.
But only one man’s death, that of Rep. John Lewis, who has been in Congress since 1986, has the media’s attention. Unlike his fellow 80-year-old, Lewis never retired and had spent his entire life in politics. He went from working for the Voter Education Project, funded by the New World Foundation, to running for public office. In 1981, he won a spot on the Atlanta City Council, a post he continued drawing a pension from even as he was in Congress, and then it was on to the House of Representatives.
Lewis has always claimed that his goal was to represent the “beloved community”. As President Trump noted, the beloved community had seen better days, “Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested).”
A quarter of families with children in the 5th live below the poverty line.The average income, unemployment, and poverty rates in Lewis’ district fall well short of national averages.[-]
[+] … Lewis’ top contributors didn’t come from his own impoverished district. The cash poured in from Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Newton, Massachusetts, and Washington D.C. Unions, including the American Federation of Teachers and the NEA, whose activities have starved countless black children of a good education to subsidize the Democrat political machine, maxed out their contributions to Lewis.
So did assorted PACs: Delta Airlines, Honeywell, American Crystal Sugar, Johnson & Johnson, and the Director’s Guild of America. The real story of Lewis’ career didn’t take place on the Edmund Pettus Bridge. That old tale has been told and retold a thousand times. The photo of a single moment made Lewis’ career and created his brand as a civil rights icon. But this is what the bridge story really bought.[-]
[+] … Where did all that money go? Hundreds of thousands of dollars were paid to Mothership Strategies, an aggressive Democrat fundraising firm which had been condemned for a “wildly deceptive, unrelenting approach that treats supporters like garbage.” Why was Rep. Lewis spending a fortune on digital strategy for elections he couldn’t lose in order to raise a lot of money from out of state Democrats?
The short answer is that this is what you do when you’re a career Washington D.C. politician.

As I’ve often mentioned before, Booker T. Washington wrote about this virtual army of self-promoting race-baiters well over 100 years ago:
“There is (a) class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. … There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.” ~ Booker T. Washington, Up From Slavery (1856-1915)
Just how prescient was that statement!
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald J. Trump – MAGA! KAG!
