Published

Members of Black Americans For A Better Future told Big League Politics that they are happy President Donald J. Trump’s support of tax reform, the bill in the House, but concerned about what version that passed the Senate.

“I consider this administration to be about promises made, and promises kept,” said Raynard Jackson, chairman of the BAFABF.

“We know we can’t get anything done unless we are at the table,” Jackson said.

“Members of the Trump administration are getting called racist, but after numerous administrations ignored us, Trump’s is the only administration helping my group get to the table,” he said.

The House bill passed Nov. 16, with 227 Republicans voting for its passage and no Democrats.

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R.-Wash.), the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, she the House had made history.

“This is a historic moment. It’s been 31 years since the tax code was fundamentally reformed,” she said.

“We’re looking out for middle class families who deserve the same chance as everyone else to get ahead,” she said.

“The hardworking men and women of America deserve a tax code that puts them first,” the congresswoman said. “We’ve created a plan that rewards hard work, encourages innovation and entrepreneurship, and levels the playing field so that everyone plays by the same rules.”

In early October, Jackson’s group presented a white paper titled: “Black Entrepreneurs Keys to Economic Improvement 2017,” to McMorris Rodgers and Stephen K. Bannon, Trump’s former chief White House strategist and now the executive chairman of Breitbart News.

The group’s research showed that access to capital was a problem due to diminishing numbers of community banks, Jackson said.

Bannon told a private group at a Nov. 2 meeting in South Carolina: “Minority entrepreneurs are the biggest customers of community banks and you know why they didn’t get recapitalized? Because nobody cares. When it comes time to make the deals, you’re not in the room.”

Jackson’s group appeared on Capitol Hill Oct.25, along with Rodgers, chairwoman of the House GOP conference, at a conference called the Faces of Tax Reform.

“I pray the Senate will finally hear our message.  Obama didn’t do this much for us,” Jackson said.  In 2008, President Barack H. Obama ran on a platform of assisting the black community getting assistance with small business in urban areas.

Kenneth McClenton, president of The Exceptional Conservative Network and member of Jackson’s group, said he has been involved in the process from the white paper to Capitol Hill, told Big League Politics: “President Trump’s administration is keeping their promises to us.”

Yet, McClenton said he is concerned about the bill in the Senate. “In truth, I believe that the Senate will sabotage the bill to surrender Congress to the Democrats.”

He is especially worried about Sen. Susan M. Collins (R.-Maine), Sen. Lisa A. Murkowski (R.-Alaska) and Sen. John S. McCain III (R.-Ariz.), because he suspects they will betray the voters, he said.

“The Senate’s resistance to the Trump agenda puts at risk economic growth and individual prosperity,” he said.

Globalists are Planning ‘Climate Lockdowns’ to Finish Off Economic Prosperity in the West

They are coming for everything.

Published

While COVID-19 mass hysteria may be waning, the globalists are intent on continuing the trend of locking down society and destroying economic prosperity for the peasants.

After the scamdemic comes to an end, it will be climate change used to pump the masses full of fear and get them to accept Draconian measures to cripple their own civilization.

Mariana Mazzucato, a professor at the Economics of Innovation and Public Value Center at University College London, is setting the stage for climate lockdowns if unprecedented taxation and centralized power are not exerted over the economy.

“Under a ‘climate lockdown,’ governments would limit private-vehicle use, ban consumption of red meat, and impose extreme energy-saving measures, while fossil-fuel companies would have to stop drilling,” Mazzucato wrote in her white paper, Avoiding a Climate Lockdown.”

She contends that the only way to stop the inevitability of climate lockdowns is to “overhaul our economic structures and do capitalism differently,” meaning do away with it entirely and replace it with totalitarian socialism.

“[G]overnment assistance to business must be less about subsidies, guarantees, and bailouts, and more about building partnerships. This means attaching strict conditions to any corporate bailouts to ensure that taxpayer money is put to productive use and generates long-term public value, not short-term private profits,” she wrote. 

“Because markets will not lead a green revolution on their own, government policy must steer them in that direction. This will require an entrepreneurial state that innovates, takes risks, and invests alongside the private sector,” Mazzucato contended.

Her writings are already influential, according to the New York Times, among politicians who are using her scribblings as an excuse to take unprecedented power-grabs.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has incorporated Mazzucato’s writings into policy ideas such as using “federal R & D to create domestic jobs and sustainable investments in the future.” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is considering Mazzucato’s ideas to strengthen her Green New Deal proposal.

Even Republican lawmakers are embracing Mazzucato’s extreme anti-capitalist doom prophecies. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) cited Mazzucato in his proposal, “American Investment in the 21st Century,” which is essentially a manifesto of surrender to the Left from the failed neoconservative 2016 presidential hopeful.

“We need to build an economy that can see past the pressure to understand value-creation in narrow and short-run financial terms,” Rubio wrote in the introduction, “and instead envision a future worth investing in for the long-term.”

Mazzucato has also influenced former British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, former British prime minister Theresa May, and Scottish leader Nicola Sturgeon. Mazzucato’s reach extends to other countries such as Germany and South Africa, and she is considered a charismatic rising star in the field of economics.

It should be obvious by now that the ruling elites never intend to restore freedom to pre-COVID levels. The lockdowns are a permanent fixture of society now, and they will be reintroduced at some point under the guise of stopping climate change.
