After being ignored by CNN, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard organized a protest at the venue for CNN’s two-night town hall.

The townhall, which started on February 5, 2020, featured eight candidates.

The Hawaii congresswoman was not invited to this townhall.

“This attempt to silence Tulsi is bigger than one person — it’s our right as voters to hear from ALL the candidates, and to have our voices represented,” the Gabbard campaign declared in a statement according to a Fox News report.“No institution should be allowed to get away with censoring democracy: That’s why we’re standing up to CNN on Wednesday, February 5th, demanding that our voices be heard.”

CNN sent out invitations to candidates who qualified for the Feb. 7, 2020 Democratic debate, according to a network spokesperson.

Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick did not qualify for the debate, but was still given a spot at the town hall “as part of the network’s commitment to hosting individual town halls with the Democratic presidential candidates,” according to a CNN statement, which rationalized this blatant example of gatekeeping.

Unlike Gabbard, Patrick was invited because he hasn’t participated in a CNN town hall, according to CNN.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, businessman Andrew Yang and billionaire Tom Steyer attended CNN’s first town hall on Wednesday night. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, former Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and former Governor Deval Patrick will take the stage on Thursday night.

Gabbard has outperformed Patrick in national polls and in New Hampshire. Additionally, she has outpolled Yang and Steyer in New Hampshire, according to a Fox News report.

“We have reached out, I think, more than once, and we received no explanation,” Gabbard said during an interview with Fox on January 28. “I don’t even think we’ve gotten a response to date about why they’re excluding the first female combat veteran ever to run for president, the only woman of color in the race.”

Gabbard holds conventional leftist positions on issues such as healthcare and the environment.

However, she is not as radical as some of her colleagues who flirt with ideas of radical environmentalism and anti-gun policies such as gun confiscation.

She also questions certain aspects of the neoconservative/neoliberal foreign policy.

For that reason, Gabbard has a useful role in calling out a lot of the nonsense coming out of the Democrat Party.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump

Published

on

Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.

Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.

On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.

“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto.  “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not,  he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”

Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil.  No, no, it’s not true.   I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”

“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019.  Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.

The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago.  According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.

Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.

However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
