A conservative activist and supporter of President Donald J. Trump has started a new initiative to end government welfare dependency in urban communities by tapping into opportunities in the Transportation industry.
“Our Nation’s Renaissance begins when our Inner-City citizens are not reduced to Government Dependency and employment hopelessness,” said Kenneth McClenton, owner of The Exceptional Conservative Network and Radio Show.
“A changed heart begins with a wowing of faith, economics, and education. We believe that Inner-City public safety improves when the Faith Community takes an active role in promoting small business growth, employment creation, and vocational training, ” he said.
STARTING A NEW TRAINING PROGRAM- NATION FIRST TRANSPORTATION
“When our students go to the employer, they are going to get a real check and they will be earning their own money. We will be working with them for up to 18 months afterward, to help people get up to job standards, make good choices with their funds and buy their own homes,” McClenton told Big League Politics.
“We can help single Moms. There are jobs people can do from home. Dispatchers can earn up to $50,000. That will help solve many problems,” he said.
Motivated by the murder of his daughter, Charnice Milton, a reporter who was used as a human shield between two rival gangs in DC and shot to death, McClenton turned his pain into activism out of his faith in God, he told Big League Politics.
Helping to change the Urban Community helps him find her killers and prevent other deaths. McClenton, a tireless activist for justice for his daughter, said that stronghold of gangs in Urban areas is something he is passionate about fighting.
“The Government cannot fix these problems. We have to get private groups to help especially the American Church,” McClenton said.

McClenton’s group will be helping people who have had previous social, emotional and financial obstacles to employment get prepared to participate in Trump’s push for American workers first.
THE FORGOTTEN INDUSTRY
Mike Heckman is from M2 Transportation LLC COO and National Transportation Academy (LLC), and is partnering with McClenton for Nation First Transportation Workforce Project (NFTWP)
“Ken and I have talked about this project, of bringing his expertise and passion together with my knowledge of the industry, for a year. We knew we were going to make this work. People are very interested in what we are doing,” Heckman told Big League Politics.
‘Trump is a construction guy- he knows the Truckers will get it there. We are into this project with Ken for the long haul,” said Heckman
Watch Trump talk about Truckers:
“America first – it’s putting America’s truckers first,” Trump said.
HOPE FOR THE FUTURE-NATION FIRST TRANSPORTATION WORKFORCE PROJECT
“The Framework of this group, is offering individuals who have been locked into economic displacement a chance to get into the Middle Class, even without a GED by working for the transportation Industry. Wages can go up to $200,000. We want those people to own homes as well,” McClenton said.
“Mentality changes when you own your own home, instead of renting. And that will make for safer streets and safer families. Ownership also helps overcome gentrification and they can start their own business in those neighborhoods. We want to build a bridge between the 800,000 empty jobs and people who need them, MClenton told Big League Politics.
Students of his program will pay a tuition. “We want to be self-sustaining very fast. We do not want to keep begging for funds. We do not want to go to the Government Trough,” he said.
“I am a radical. I do not go to councilmen’s offices or government agencies. I want to do this with private funding,” said McClenton.
Inspired by Trump’s platform and member of Black Americans For A Better Future, a group dedicated to improving the lives of black Americans thru private employment and economic opportunities, McClenton plans on seeking assistance from churches and other private donations.
“The biggest problem is that we need seed money”, McClenton said. “If 1000 American churches gave $100.00 we would be done.”

New Gallup Poll Shows Immigration Tops Most Important Problem List
When Americans were asked what they feel is the most important problem facing the nation, immigration topped the list for just the second time in Gallup’s history. The top issue each month since January of 2017 has been the government, but immigration has just replaced its position according to a new Gallup poll.
When asked the same question in June, immigration ranked at 14% when Gallup asked Americans what’s the “most important problem” the nation faces. It jumped from 14% to 22% from June to July 2018.
Each month, Gallup asks the same question and the answer of immigration has always averaged 5% over the 17 years Gallup has included it in their polls. So why the sudden jump from 14% to 22%?
The past several weeks social media and news outlets alike have focused on the issue of separating families at the border with President Trump’s stance on immigration and his modified policy that would keep families detained together (if detainment must occur) continuing to be a hot button issue.
Just last month, TIME ran the cover story, “A Reckoning After Trump’s Border Separation Policy: What Kind of Country Are We,” with the cover photo that was proven to be fake news. The cover showed a 2-year-old little girl crying while President Trump towers above her looking on as she wails. The cover read simply “Welcome to America.” The claim made by Time was that the little girl had been separated from her family at the border, but Yanela, daughter to Sandra Sanchez had never been separated from her mother at all. Sanchez and her daughter were arrested by Border Patrol agents under the zero tolerance policy that criminally charges anyone attempting to cross the border illegally, but at no point were they separated.
Every week immigration has remained in the news cycle, and continues to be an issue that is important to Americans. The Washington Examiner reported on Monday that The National Guard’s deployment to the southwest border in mid-April has led to 10,805 “deportable alien arrests” of people who entered into the United States from Mexico illegally. The National Guard has also intercepted more than 3,300 others who were turned back at the border before crossing into the U.S., and have seized 11,686 pounds of marijuana.
In April of 2006, immigration reached 19% when Congress was working on passing a comprehensive immigration bill. During this time period, immigration protests popped up all across America and saturated the news cycle. The last spike, according to Gallup of immigration as the top problem was in 2014 when the news focused its attention on a large number of immigrants who were attempting to enter the U.S. from Central America.
The issue of immigration is important to Americans, but for starkly different reasons. Republicans are more concerned about potential crime, impacts on the nation’s economy, and jobs being taken away from native-born families. Democrats, in contrast, support a path to citizenship for the undocumented, but more over, they know that they need all the help they can get at the polls, with Trump’s base stronger than ever heading into the Midterms.
The Gallup poll is based on telephone interviews conducted July 1-11 with a random sample of 1,033 adults in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. It has a margin of error of 4 percentage points and a 95 percent confidence level.
