Black Liberal Woman On CNN: ‘I Agree With Steve Bannon’ On Need For White House Diversity

Published

on

CNN political commentator Angela Rye said that she agrees with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon that the Trump White House has a poor track record on hiring minorities and should make more of an effort to do so.

Rye, the former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus, is no fan of President Donald Trump. But she clearly sees through the false narrative that Bannon is a racist. On Thursday night, she told Anderson Cooper that she agrees with Bannon on the need for White House diversity:

The narrative that Bannon is a white supremacist has become a staple of liberal cable-news talking points, despite no evidence that Bannon is racist in any way. Bannon did once say in an interview that his website Breitbart News is a platform for the “Alt-Right.” But as people close to him make clear, Bannon at the time thought that “Alt-Right” referred to a community of alternative conservatives on the Internet. Only later did the term “Alt-Right” attain a racial connotation in the mainstream media.

Bannon’s populism places special emphasis on advancement for African-Americans, as listeners of his radio show “Breitbart News Daily” have known for years. Populist nationalists believe that black Americans have been disenfranchised by elites in both political parties, and that educational and small business opportunities need to surface in the black community against the wishes of Democrats who seek to sell welfare for votes and Republicans who largely don’t pay any attention to black people. Bannon’s company Breitbart News is considerably more diverse than the White House.

Report: Mueller Grants Immunity to Tony Podesta in Manafort Case

Published

on

Reports are circulating that longtime DNC lobbyist, Tony Podesta, has been granted immunity in exchange for testifying against a former campaign chairman to President Donald J. Trump, who has been charged under the Foreign Agent Registration Act.

“The Podesta Group reportedly worked with Manafort — a former chairman of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign — to lobby on behalf of Ukrainian interests in the United States, without properly registering at the time under the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA),” Fox News reported.

The Podesta Group, owned by Tony and his brother John, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, was a large D.C. lobbying firm that closed its doors at the end of last year.

Manafort and the Podesta Group reportedly worked on a campaign for European Centre for a Modern Ukraine. Manafort stands accused of multiple financial crimes in connection with lobbying work he performed in for the Centre.

Make no mistake, the Podesta Group did not register as a foreign agent under FARA either, meaning that Podesta will remain uncharged  for the same crime for which Manafort is accused.

Tucker Carlson noted on his show that in the past 51 years, only seven people had been charged under FARA, though there were surely many more violations during that timespan. In 2018, three people have been charged under the Act – all of them somehow related to Donald Trump.

Once again it appears that Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller is on a partisan witch hunt to mar the reputation of Trump and his associates who worked on his campaign.
