Democrat Congress to Hold Reparation Hearings with Hollywood Actors and Social Justice Authors

The Democrats are relying on division to win back the Presidency in 2020.

Instead of solving problems for Americans, Democrats in Congress will be holding a hearing about slavery reparations featuring Hollywood stars and race-baiting social justice authors to create further divisions among the people.

The House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties will hold the hearing next Wednesday with actor Danny Glover and author Ta-Nehisi Coates giving testimony.

The purpose of the hearings is supposedly “to examine, through open and constructive discourse, the legacy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, its continuing impact on the community and the path to restorative justice.”

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) is leading the charge, proposing a resolution calling for a study of reparations that was previously championed by now-retired Democratic Rep. John Conyers (D-MI).

Newly-elected Democrats, the radicalized women of color whose voices will not be silenced, are coming out in favor of a race-based handouts program.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), the foul-mouthed Muslim pushing to impeach President Donald Trump, is working on a reparations bill, according to a post she made on Twitter last year.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-MI) is taking it a step further, arguing that Hispanic people ought to get reparations as well because of the economic injustice that white people are responsible for perpetrating upon all people of color.

“People think reparations is reparations for slavery, but really, economically speaking, reparations are for the damage done by the New Deal and redlining because that is where we saw a compounding of the existing inequity from the legacy of slavery, where we drew red lines around black communities,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“We said white communities will get home loans and they will get access to the basic bedrock of wealth in America and this will be your heirloom and we gave white America the heirloom that appreciated overtime — that people still benefit from today and we did not give to African-American and Mexican communities, Puerto Rican communities,” she added.

As Trump focuses on his agenda of jobs, trade and national security heading into 2020, the Democrats are increasingly embracing the extreme Left and stoking racial tensions before next year’s presidential election.

Arizona’s Paul Gosar Proposes Amending Coronavirus Package to Replace Pork with $10,000 Stimulus Checks

Gosar wants direct aid to the American people.

Published

Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona has proposed that the federal government pay stimulus checks of $10,000 to Americans beleaguered by the coronavirus pandemic, adopting an approach that would prioritize direct payments to individuals over payments to state and local governments. Gosar’s Amendment, offered on Friday night, would also replace payments to extend federal unemployment benefits.

As the American Rescue Plan currently stands, $1,400 stimulus checks to American taxpayers who filed less than $75,000 in income in 2018 make up $422 billion- a mere 22% of the total spending in the relief package. Gosar’s proposal would replace much of the questionable spending with direct relief.

If the federal government intends to go ‘all-in’ on deficit spending in response to the coronavirus recession, Gosar’s proposal would ensure that the money is spent directly on the livelihood of American taxpayers. Less than half of the spending of Biden’s stimulus is directly targeted towards taxpayers, with education, energy, transport and state governments receiving almost as much money as the American people under Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan.

Biden’s pork proposal can easily be retooled to prioritize direct spending to Americans, be it in the shape of stimulus checks or buffed unemployment benefits to Americans who have lost their jobs in the recession. Instead, the establishment Democrat has opted to prioritize payments to powerful lobby groups and corporate institutions.

The American Rescue Plan passed the House in a Friday night vote. Should the massive spending package fail to pass the Senate in budget reconciliation, congressional leaders may be left with no choice but to consider proposals such as Gosar that replace federal spending with direct relief to the American people.
