How The ACORN Scandal Seeded Today's Nightmare Politics

Good read. ACORN’s demise along with discriminatory voter ID laws was the main reason Trump won. This was the Republican plan when Obama won the election in 2008 by wide margins. They knew that the only way for them to win was to play the voter fraud card.

Liberty University

I am in the military and a lot of other military members I know are enrolled in Liberty. Me being politically astute, I am aware of this fake Christian school and it’s self righteous leader.

What pisses me off is that this “college” is treated as nonprofit and benefits from taxpayer money via the GI Bill, military Tuition Assistance, and US Dept of Education programs. The latter being hypocritical seeing that conservatives are constantly against those programs.

This school has become an online behemoth that rivals Phoenix University. The first three classes required before getting into your real classes are religious classes. These credits do not transfer which means that a student is essentially stuck.

3 American prisoners in North Korea being released

Of course trump is going to milk this, but why aren’t more people pointing out his tweet last night on this. Two of these prisoners were captured in May 2017 when Obama was not even in office.

Release of Americans held in North Korea 'imminent,' source says

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/991843153953964033


The Obama Adminstration was so weak that they couldn’t even get these American hostages free.


Kim Dong Chul has been in North Korean custody since before Trump was elected, the other two detainees were arrested last spring, after Trump's inauguration.
Tony Kim and Kim Hak-song, who were arrested in April and May of 2017 respectively, were both accused of carrying out "hostile acts" against the Kim Jong Un regime.

Janelle Mone gets slammed for her 'family-unfriendly' performance on 'The Voice'

“Not appropriate entertainment for a family show — EVER!” “Just not my type [of] entertainment.” Too sexy for TV? That’s what a majority of fans tweeted after singer Janelle Monáe took the stage Tuesday on “The Voice.


The people with this fake outrage, are probably the same people that are ok with a POTUS who said that he can grab women by the p***sy and had an affair with a porn star.

Black republicans and conservatives

I just don’t understand how they can be in a party where a good chunk of the people are racists.

But what really pisses me off is that these people use their “blackness” as a ticket to be prejudice against other African Americans. On top of that, they say that other black people talk about color too much and need to stop, but they are the ones using their color to become known and make money.
