And, in other news….

By Patty On January 12th, 2018

Today, President Trump signed a proclamation declaring  this January 15, a national holiday; Dr. King’s nephew, Reverend Isaac Newton Farris Jr. describes this day as a day of service in Dr. King’s honor.

With “Russia! Russia!”  and, now, “Trump is a racist!”  you probably won’t see much about this in the MSM.   I post the video of the signing below. It is worth watching and the action starts at 8:44.  There is a brief youtube black screen in the middle of a very moving Ben Carson speech (youtube cuts frequently into RSBN broadcasts with black screens).

  1. The event, ironic in the extreme, is covered in virtually every part of the MSM. Not covered in your post is the fact that Farris has described Trump as racially uninformed or racially ignorant.

  2. Patty doth protesteth too mucheth

  3. No her post points out that where MLK Day was a day of remembrance it took the racist Trump to make it into a real National Holiday.

  4. No he didn’t Patrick. It has been a Federal holiday since 1986 and recognised by every state since 1992. The Trump proclamation is the same now traditional proclamation made by every President since it was made a holiday.

  5. But he’s a racist how can that be?

  6. I give you credit Colm at least you caught what I said none of the Americans did. 👁

  7. Those that are claiming to be totally not racist missed it entirely. I have been doing posts on his holiday honoring him since I came here.
    His holiday coincides with my anniversary and I’ve done more posts on him than I have my Anniversary.

  8. Patrick

    If MLK were still alive I think Monica might be worried she could lose you… 😉

  9. Everyone has been going off over the shithole comment yet they can’t pay attention to things that are really about race.

  10. He has been a hero my whole life. My father made sure growing up that I got to read and hear everything he was said and was about.

  11. It took the racist Trump to make it into a real National Holiday.

    No he didn’t Patrick. It has been a Federal holiday since 1986 and recognised by every state since 1992. The Trump proclamation is the same now traditional proclamation made by every President since it was made a holiday.

    I can’t see anything in this connected to anything ‘really about race’ tbh Pat.

    Your 8.56 is very true. Trump’s “shithole” comment in itself is not that important, I don’t think he is a malicious nasty person, but many of those who applaud it and are happy to hear a POTUS say it, truly are.

  13. yes they ARE Colm, not because they are racist or out of any kind of hate. We are happy to hear it because for decades the politicians of both-sides have been pissing down our backs and telling us it’s raining.

    We have been bludgeoned to death with Politically Correct talk and Rules on what we can say, what we can comment on. And everyone alive knows it’s not how people talk and god forbid you say something off color you are beat to death and labled with a Scarlet letter…

    70% of Americans over the age of 30 are peeing themselves laughing hysterically for two reasons. 1 we all have an uncle like Trump, where we know every inappropriate thought that pops into heads…. is going to come right out of his mouth.

    And then the icing on the cake… we get to watch the other 30% absolutely loose their shit over what he said for the next week.

    He’ll get reelected for just the entertainment value he is providing us alone.

    The only people upset are the same people who have been shoving this PC crap down our throats for decades, and that’s worth more votes than you can imagine.

    The US provides more AID to the Shitholes of the World than all other Nations combined our consciences are clear.

  14. The US is a relative miser when it comes to aid to the poor countries; the Europeans give more

    The US does not give more to Africa than the rest of the world combined; it gives 17% of the total

    https://www.oecd.org/dac/stats/documentupload/2%20Africa%20-%20Development%20Aid%20at%20a%20Glance%202016.pdf

  15. It is absolute insanity to elect someone to the highest office in the land, purely for ‘entertainment value’. Only the stupidest of people would see this as a good reason.
    You may as well vote for Oprah next time – at least she has better guests.

  16. Also – I would be hugely surprised if that 70%-30% split was anywhere close to being accurate, true or honest. Are there any facts or evidence to back the claim up?

  17. notice how the conservative from NY always finds America wanting…. When was the last time some nation had a disaster and the EU sent ships…. I’m not going to break it down because it’s ridiculous to say we aren’t the worlds safety net, it defies history.

    and Seimi it is 70-30 you don’t see it because the majority of Americans don’t even bother to vote, but they are just as sick and tired of this pc condemnation crap as those of us that do.

  18. No I only believe in going by the facts.

    Europe gives much more in foreign development aid to poor countries than the US does. That’s not debatable.

    Low information Americans sometimes get all befuddled by including in US ” foreign aid ” military aid to rich countries like Israel or to other ” allies ” like Egypt or Pakistan. This military aid has nothing to do with aiding poor people, nothing to do with helping those nations develop economically.

    It is an American urban legend that the US is ” the most generous nation in the world “. That was true in the days of the Marshall Plan ( which helped Europe but which helped us too ) or during the days when the US was the only rich nation, but it’s not true now.

  19. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_development_aid_country_donors

    The evil EU ” EUSSR ” gives three times as much economic aid to other lands as the US does despite being roughly the same size.

    And many countries give more as a percentage of their GDP to help other countries than the US does

    Again, not even close.

  20. The evil Irish, despite their problems, give twice as much as the US does as percentage of GDP, the failing UK, more than four times as much as the US.

  21. you wouldn’t know a fact if it bit you in the ass….

    Phantom you are one of the lowest information people on here. If it’s not in the liberal media you don’t know it and you don’t believe it. You have no regard for any point of view except your own…. I say world and you pull up Africa, but I noticed your Africa report had none of the GW Aid in it…. why is that?

  22. as a percentage of gdp…. so I gave you dollar because I made ten. but he gave you a thousand because he earns 100 thousand…

    gee that dollar helped more than the 1000

  23. Yes yes America the EVIL EMPIRE….. the US is the worst.

    Lift a glass for me today, hows the weather where your at?

  24. The US is good but others give much more.

    The weather is fine where I am, off to an important meeting.

  25. //Low information Americans sometimes get all befuddled by including in US//

    True, they are befuddled.

    The US gives more than any other country, but that is still a small percentage of its total income (less than 1 pc).

    In 2016, the US gave 31 bn Dollars, Germany was next with 21 bn, then the UK with 20 bn, France 11 bn (World Economic Forum figures). So, of the EU countries, Germany and France alone give more than the US. Most of the other EU countries are also strong doners. The EU overall gives 92 bn Dollars, almost three times the amount donated by the US.

    In terms of percentage of GDP among developed nations, Sweden is the most generous, spending around 1.5 pc of its income on foreign aid, while Israel is the lowest, at just 0.07 percent.

    The US is very generous on AIDS project spending in the 3rd world, and of course on military aid. 75 % of all military aid spent by the US goes to the two countries Israel and Egypt.

  26. Can you please provide evidence of the 70-30 split?

  27. enjoy the meeting

  28. 1043 elected seats moved from one colum to the other over the past 8yrs, Donald Trump as President. Other than that Seimi it’s hard to quantify laughter and bile… but I’ll make you bet.

    He wins reelection.

  29. Yes yes America the EVIL EMPIRE….. the US is the worst.

    I don’t see anyone suggesting that at all Pat.

    What I see is your claim that ‘the US provides more AID to the Shitholes of the World than all other Nations combined’ being factually corrected that there are nations that give more in foreign aid than the US both in gross and pro rata terms.

    75 % of all military aid spent by the US goes to the two countries Israel and Egypt.

    Interesting fact that Noel.

  30. How many of you even understand what this REALLY is?

    My guess would be none.

    The Wolf book came out they were running with he’s crazy.

    He opened a congressional meeting to the press. He looked great. Congress looked foolish. The public loved it.

    So he called a bunch of shitholes exactly what they were and enemies from both sides played it up in the press. Now he’s a racist….

    This is political PR Chess nothing more.

    It’s called controlling the narrative, and you clowns are playing right along. Notice I’ve stayed off most of these threads because it’s idiocy playing to idiots, cake and circuses.

    The United States of America is the greatest country on Earth. We are better than the rest of you at everything. We are winning, and we will always win.

    It’s that simple.

    You can’t even figure out PR games….. roflmao

  31. Paul Phantom implies that. He never says it…

  32. 75 % of all military aid spent by the US goes to the two countries Israel and Egypt.

    why do you think that is?
