Another Media Fail: Only 24% Want Oprah Winfrey to Run for President

Only 24 percent of American voters want Oprah Winfrey to run for president, according to a Morning Consult poll of some 2,000 registered voters. When broken down by party affiliation, only 38 percent of Democrats want her to run.

In the wake of her speech at the Golden Globes last Sunday, Hollywood and the elitist media — two left-wing  institutions currently facing mushrooming sexual misconduct scandals —  spent a full week attempting to convince the public that Winfrey would be a perfect choice to challenge Trump for re-election in 2020.

Naturally, the far-left CNN was the most exuberant. But it was all fake news, all propaganda spewed from the provincial bubble of Hollywood and media…

On top of not even garnering the support of a quarter of American voters, in worse news for an elitist media rapidly losing its moral authority and ability to move public opinion, a solid majority of 59 percent do not want Winfrey to run.

The news gets even worse when Winfrey is matched directly with Trump, who she only tops by a measly two points, 40 to 38 percent.

After years of adoring press coverage and a full week of the media celebrating and promoting her presidential prospects, Oprah has only managed to pull ahead of Trump within the margin of error — and Trump is the guy the media have been smearing and trolling for nearly two years now. This is a terrible showing for Oprah.

On top of that, Oprah is at her most pristine politically. Because the media have even gone so far as to cover up her indefensible Swiss race hoax, Winfrey is currently unblemished in the political arena, a status she loses, though, the moment she decides to step into the arena.

The Morning Consult poll also showed that the media’s obvious desire to see Trump challenged by a woman of color is facing headwinds with Democrat voters who prefer (by wide margins) two very old white guys over the billionaire mogul: former Vice President Joe Biden (54 to 31 percent) and Senator Bernie Sanders (46 to 37 percent).

While the week is not yet over, this is the third embarrassing setback for the national media in just a few days.

On Wednesday, a poll clearly showed that the public is waking up to months of media lies about the GOP tax bill signed into office by Trump last month. Even before American workers have had a chance to see their own personal tax cut in next month’s pay checks, already a plurality support the bill — a massive turnaround thanks to the tax cut already inspiring some 194 companies to offer substantial bonuses and pay raises to some two million employees.

Also, on Monday, after weeks of flat-out lies and wild-eyed conspiracy theories about Trump’s mental health, the White House doctor confirmed that the president scored a perfect 30-for-30 on a difficult and widely respected mental acuity test. As a result, the media was again was exposed as serial betrayers of the public trust.

For the first time in nearly eight years, snowfall is covering at least part of the ground in all 50 states.

As of Wednesday morning, snowfall covered at least part of all 50 states and blanketed 52.3 percent of the country, WMTV reported.

The last time all 50 states reported snow on the ground around the same time was February 12, 2010. The latest blast of winter weather brought snow and record-cold temperatures as far south as the Gulf Coast states of Florida and Louisiana.

Even Hawaii, known for its tropical paradise, reported snow on Mauna Kea, the volcanic mountain that sits on the Big Island.

Even though this is the first time snow is present in all 50 states in eight years, other storms over the years have brought snowfall to the majority of states.

Winter Storm Helena in 2017 caused snowfall to cover the ground in many parts of the country — 49 out of 50 states reported snow on the ground on January 8, 2017, after the storm.

Report: California Mayor Vows to ‘Go to Jail’ to Protect ‘Sanctuary City’ Policies Amid Immigration Crackdown

The mayor of Oakland, California, is vowing to face jail time to protect illegal aliens from facing America’s immigration laws as the Trump administration plans to ramp up its enforcement of those laws, a report says.

During his campaign for president and several times since, President Donald Trump has threatened to starve so-called “sanctuary cities” of federal funding. Some reports recently claimed that the administration is set to focus on California for a new wave of raids setting the stage for more deportations of illegals.

With the pressure on sanctuary cities, especially in California, Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf is grandstanding that she would risk going to jail to oppose immigration officials from deporting illegals in her town.

In an interview with San Francisco’s CBS affiliate, Schaaf slammed Trump as the “bully in chief.”

“It is no surprise that the bully in chief is continuing to try to intimidate our most vulnerable residents,” Schaaf said. “We’re very clear that our values are to protect all of our residents regardless of where we come from. We want to protect families, not tear them apart.”

“We are exercising our legal right to be a Sanctuary City and to protect our residents,” the mayor added. “The fact that the federal government is suggesting that it is actively retaliating against jurisdictions that are exercising their right to have sanctuary policies — that is what is illegal.”

Schaaf said she is willing to go to jail to protect illegal aliens.

The Oakland City Council firmly backed the mayor, too.

Firstly, Oakland has set aside one million in tax dollars to help defend illegals who are gathered up by immigration officials. Secondly, the council voted unanimously to discontinue cooperation with ICE officials.

AP: Border Wall Models Thwart U.S. Commandos in Tests

President Donald Trump hinted during a cabinet meeting that he might be visiting the wall prototypes on the southern border.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Recent assaults by tactical teams on prototypes of President Donald Trump’s proposed wall with Mexico indicate their imposing heights should stop border crossers, a U.S. official with direct knowledge of the rigorous assessment told The Associated Press.

Military special forces based in Florida and U.S. Customs and Border Protection special units spent three weeks trying to breach and scale the eight models in San Diego, using jackhammers, saws, torches and other tools and climbing devices, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the information was not authorized for public release.

A Customs and Border Protection report on the tests identifies strengths and flaws of each design but does not pick an overall winner or rank them, though it does point to see-through steel barriers topped by concrete as the best overall design, the official said.

The report recommends combining elements of each, depending on the terrain. The official likened it to a Lego design, pulling pieces from different prototypes.

Carlos Diaz, a spokesman for Customs and Border Protection, said the agency is still in “the testing phase” and that results are being evaluated. He said combining elements of different prototypes instead of picking a winner is consistent with previous statements by officials. He noted that the agency said in its bidding guidelines that a minimum height of 18 feet (5.4 meters) would be a key characteristic. He said he did not have additional details on test results.

Contractors were awarded between $300,000 and $500,000 for each prototype. Prototypes were built last fall to guide future construction of one of Trump’s signature campaign pledges. Four were concrete and four were made of other materials.

Ronald Vitiello, the agency’s acting deputy commissioner, said after visiting the prototypes in October that he was struck most by the 30-foot (9.1-meter) heights, which are significantly higher than existing barriers. Taller barriers are undoubtedly more effective, but whether the cost is justified will be up for debate.

The highly trained testers scaled 16 to 20 feet (4.9 to 6.1 meters) unassisted but needed help after that, said the official who described the assaults on the wall prototypes to the AP. Testers also expressed safety concerns about getting down from 30 feet.

Only once did a tester manage to land a hook on top of the wall without help, the official said. Tubes atop some models repelled climbing devices but wouldn’t work in more mountainous areas because the terrain is too jagged.

The report favors steel at ground level because agents can see what is happening on the other side and holes can more easily be patched, the official said. With concrete, large slabs have to be replaced for even small breaches, which is time-consuming and expensive. Topping the steel with smooth concrete surfaces helps prevent climbing.

Customs and Border Protection leaders were scheduled to be briefed on the findings this week amid intensifying discussions between the White House and Congress on immigration legislation to avert a government shutdown and renew protection for about 800,000 young immigrants who were temporarily shielded from deportation under an Obama-era program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which is scheduled to end in March.

The administration has insisted wall funding be part of any immigration deal but Trump has been unclear about how long the wall would be and how it should be designed. The administration has asked for $1.6 billion this year to build or replace 74 miles (118.4 kilometers) of barriers in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley and San Diego and plans to request another $1.6 billion next year.

A proposal by Customs and Border Protection calls for spending $18 billion over 10 years to extend barriers to cover nearly half the border, though it is unclear if Trump supports that plan. The agency proposes 316 miles (505 kilometers) of additional barrier by September 2027, bringing total coverage to 970 miles (1,552 kilometers). It also seeks 407 miles (651 kilometers) of replacement or secondary fencing.

Mexico has steadfastly rejected Trump’s demand that it pay for the wall.

Contracts to do work on that scale would be hugely lucrative, and the prototypes, spaced tightly together in a remote part of San Diego, have captured widespread attention, including from architecture critics. W.G. Yates & Sons Construction Co. of Philadelphia, Mississippi, and Caddell Construction Co. of Montgomery, Alabama, built one concrete model and one of other materials.

Texas Sterling Construction Co., a unit of Sterling Construction Co., and Fisher Sand & Gravel Co. of Tempe, Arizona, did concrete designs. ELTA North America Inc., part of state-run Israel Aerospace Industries, and KWR Construction Inc. of Sierra Vista, Arizona, built models from other materials.

Vitiello said in October that the testing could last up to two months and lead to officials to conclude that elements of several designs should be merged to create effective walls, raising the possibility of no winner or winners.

Massachusetts Orders Residents to Surrender Bump Stocks

bump stock

The state of Massachusetts is ordering residents to surrender any bump stocks in their possession, making clear that even keeping such an accessory at home is prohibited.

Massachusetts’ bump stock ban is a response to the October 1, 2017, Las Vegas shooting, wherein the devices were criminally to inflict harm. No bump stock crimes in the state of Massachusetts have been cited.

Moreover, the Massachusetts’ bump stock ban also bans trigger cranks, although trigger cranks were not even used in the Las Vegas attack.

The ban is based on language in a new spending bill containing sections directly referencing bump stocks and trigger cranks.

The bill defines a bump stock as “any device for a weapon that increases the rate of fire achievable with such weapon by using energy from the recoil of the weapon to generate a reciprocating action that facilitates repeated activation of the trigger.” It defines a trigger crank as “any device to be attached to a weapon that repeatedly activates the trigger of the weapon through the use of a lever or other part that is turned in a circular motion; provided, however, that ‘trigger crank’ shall not include any weapon initially designed and manufactured to fire through the use of a crank or lever.”

Guns.com obtained a letter being sent by the Massachusetts’ Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, which says, in part:

Effective 90 days from the enactment of the bill—February 1, 2018—the new law will also prohibit possession of bump stocks or trigger cranks, including possession in a private home. There are no exceptions to this prohibition for licensed firearm owners: an FID card, a License to Carry, or even a license to possess a machine gun will not authorize possession of a bump stock or a trigger crank.

Because the law does not allow for transfer or sale of these prohibited items, if you currently possess a bump stock or trigger crank within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts you should contact your local police department or the Massachusetts State Police to get details about how to transfer custody of the prohibited item to the police for destruction. Retention of such a prohibited item beyond the 90 day grace period will expose the owner to criminal prosecution.

Breitbart News reported that Democrats were emboldened to pursue state-level gun control after the NRA retreated from the bump stock fight. And Republicans who once feared the political ramifications of bucking the NRA now see a bump stock legislation as a way they can pursue gun control without political fallout.

Mansour: Trump ‘Has Governed Completely as a Pro-Lifer,’ Unlike Other GOP Presidents

President Donald Trump “has governed completely as a pro-lifer” and has “given the pro-life movement everything he could,” said Breitbart News’s Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour on Thursday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight.

Mansour made these remarks while discussing Friday’s annual pro-life March for Life in Washington, D.C.

“Ever since Roe v. Wade became the law of the land by fiat, by Supreme Court justices legislating from the bench,” said Mansour, “pro-lifers from around the country come to Washington, D.C., to peacefully petition the government on behalf of the unborn and the millions that we will never know.”

“It’s very hopeful to me to see this happen again and again, to show that we do not forget this issue,” she said, expressing admiration for the dedication of the pro-life movement in coming to the nation’s capital every January on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision despite the “awful weather” and the news media’s blackout of their protests.

“It’s remarkable to see these young people come here,” said Mansour, noting the predominance of college and high school students among the participants. “This is the future of our country and the future of the pro-life movement.”

Describing her personal connection to the March, Mansour said, “The first time in my life that I ever went to Washington, D.C., was when I was nineteen years old and participated in a March for Life.”

Mansour noted that President Trump is making history by addressing this year’s March for Life. Despite her earlier reservations about the sincerity of his opposition to abortion, Mansour said that the president’s actions towards the issue are a better metric for evaluating his pro-life bona fides.

“For the first time in history, a sitting President of the United States will address the March for Life,” said Mansour. “And that president is, of course, President Donald Trump. Donald Trump, I’ve got to tell you, I’m not entirely certain that he is pro-life personally. To be perfectly honest, I never quite bought that he was pro-life when he said that he was during the election, during the primaries. I always kind of figured he’s just saying that. But, I will tell you this, he has governed completely as a pro-lifer. He has given the pro-life movement everything he could. He has given social conservatives everything he could. This is a guy who has stood up for conservatives and has governed like a conservative more than we’ve seen since Ronald Reagan.”

Members of the ostensibly conservative “Never Trump” movement, added Mansour, look foolish in the light of Trump’s conservative governance: “The Never Trumpers who belittled this man — who laughed at him, thought he was just completely lying to us, snowballing us — you know what? You guys have egg on your face because this man has fulfilled his promises when it comes to pro-lifers, when it comes to the social conservatives. He has stood with us completely and defended the religious communities in this country.”

Mansour illustrated the primacy of behavior over attitude with a biblical anecdote, drawing on Christ’s Parable of the Two Sons.

“I’ve often been reminded of the Parable of the Two Sons,” said Mansour. “This is from the Gospel of Matthew. Jesus said, ‘What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, “Son, go and work today in the vineyard.” “I will not,” the son answered. But later he changed his mind, and he went. Then the father went to the other son, and he said the same thing. That son answered, “I will, sir,” but he did not go. Which of the two did what his father wanted?’ Of course, the crowd answered, ‘The first. The one that said no, but then went and did it.’ And Jesus used that parable to explain how the sinners often are the ones fulfilling what God has asked, who will enter the Kingdom of God, as he said, ahead of the others who say, ‘Yes,’ but actually don’t do it.”

Trump has “completely stood with the religious community” where previous Republican presidents had not, noted Mansour: “There’s all sorts of stuff in the news about Donald Trump — all sorts of stories about porn stars, this, that, and the other thing, these sensational things to try to smear and besmirch the man’s record and character. I have no doubt that he’s very venal and that he’s done things in his past that we would look askance at, but what I look at is what the man’s actions are in office, and I see a man that has stood completely with the religious community in this country and has basically defended them in places where other Republican presidents, who claim to be Christian and who actually seem to be very upright, didn’t.”

“So I’ve got to say, thank you very much President Trump for what you’re doing,” concluded Mansour.

Trump is scheduled to address Friday’s March for Life rally via TV feed around 12:15 PM ET.

Breitbart News Tonight airs Monday through Friday on SiriusXM’s Patriot channel 125 from 9:00 p.m. to midnight Eastern (6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Pacific).

Dow’s 31 Percent Gain Under Trump Highest Since FDR

AP Photo

The 31 percent rise of the Dow Jones Industrial Average is the best gain in the first year of a presidency since Franklin Roosevelt.

Since January 20th, 2017, the stock market has made overwhelming gains with the Dow rising by 31 percent, the best performance since Roosevelt where it skyrocketed by 96.5 percent in his first year of office.

The figure is higher than that of Harry Truman, Barack Obama, and Lyndon B. Johnson, all of whom saw substantial gains of over 25 percent.

Most analysts believe the gains are driven by the Trump administrations slashing of regulations as well as a substantial corporate tax cut from 35 to 21 percent passed by Congress last December.

“This is all about policy,” Bruce Bittles, chief investment strategist at Baird told CNBC. “You’ve got lower taxes, less regulation and confidence in the economy is high. Things are firing on all cylinders.”

Companies such as Boeing and Caterpillar have seen a growth of 115 percent and 82 percent, while thousands of major businesses have experienced major gains.

Other positive economic indicators include records lows of unemployment. According to Labor Department figures released earlier this week reveal jobless claims have fallen to a record low of 220,000, while overall GDP has surpassed expectations.

‘Shocking’ House Intel Memo Allegedly Reveals FISA Abuse by Senior DOJ and FBI Officials

Members of the House on Thursday said they viewed a “shocking” classified memo allegedly detailing abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by senior Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigations officials in relation to the investigation of the Trump campaign and called for it to be declassified and available to the public immediately.

It’s troubling. It is shocking,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Fox News. “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.

The facts contained in this memo are jaw-dropping and demand full transparency. There is no higher priority than the release of this information to preserve our democracy,” said Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), a member of the Judiciary Committee, which oversees the DOJ and the FBI.

Another Judiciary Committee member, Rep. Steve King (R-IA), called what he saw in the memo “sickening” and said it was “worse than Watergate.

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), another Judiciary Committee member,  called the memo “deeply troubling” and said it raises questions about the “Obama DOJ and Comey FBI.”

The classified report compiled by House Intelligence is deeply troubling and raises serious questions about the upper echelon of the Obama DOJ and Comey FBI as it relates to the so-called collusion investigation,” he tweeted.

You think about, ‘is this happening in America or is this the KGB?’ That’s how alarming it is,” Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) told Fox News.

It is so alarming the American people have to see this,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), a senior member of the Judiciary Committee, also said to network.

The viewing of the memo came after all Republican members of the House intelligence committee, whose investigators compiled the classified memo, voted Thursday to make it available to all House members. Every Democrat on the committee voted against it.

According to Gaetz, the memo’s contents could lead to the firing — and perhaps even jailing — of senior DOJ and FBI officials.

I think that this will not end just with firings. I believe there are people who will go to jail,” he said on Fox News’ Hannity.

He said what he saw in the memo also explains why Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Judiciary Subcommittee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) recently referred the Fusion GPS dossier author Christopher Steele for a criminal investigation.

I think there will be criminal implications here,” Gaetz added.

The memo also reportedly contains information about the dossier put together by Fusion GPS that alleged Trump and members of his team colluded with Russians in the 2016 election, according to a report by investigative journalist Sara Carter.

It was revealed in October that the dossier was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Despite being a political document, the dossier was reportedly part of the evidence FBI officials used to apply for and obtain a warrant through a secret FISA court to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Page told Breitbart News in a statement: “After over a year of inciting discord and threats of violence across America, it’s encouraging that the individuals in Washington responsible for these efforts to undermine our great democracy may be held accountable soon.”

Breitbart News reported on March 3, 2017, that the Obama administration took steps to undermine Trump’s presidential campaign using “police state” tactics, including spying on the Trump campaign. That report is widely believed to have led to President Trump’s tweet that later accused the Obama administration of wiretapping Trump Tower.

Members of the public and Congress are now calling for the document to be declassified and released to the public.

DeSantis said the House intelligence committee, pursuant to House rules, should vote to make the report publicly available as soon as possible.

While the report is classified as Top Secret, I believe the select committee should, pursuant to House rules, vote to make the report publicly available as soon as possible. This is a matter of national significance and the American people deserve the truth,” he said.

Rule X of the House Rules allows the select committee to publicly disclose any information in its possession after a determination by the select committee that the public interest would be served by such disclosure.

According to House Rules, if the House intelligence committee votes to make the report public, President Trump would have five days to issue an objection. If he objected, it would take a vote on the House floor.

Donald Trump’s Support Among Blacks Has Doubled Since 2016, Amid Racism Claims

blacks

Two new polls show President Donald Trump’s rising support among black voters, highlighting his political gains from pushing employers to hire Americans instead of lower-wage migrants.

The growing support from blacks — despite furious Democratic claims of racism — could become a shocking political validation in November when Trump will face millions of upper-income Democratic voters who are angry at his “Buy American, Hire American” policies.

Among black men, Trump’s “2017 average approval rating significantly exceeds his 2016 vote share,” admitted a January 11 article in the Atlantic by author Ronald Brownstein. “23 percent of black men approved of Trump’s performance versus 11 percent of black women,” said the article.

That score averages out to 17 percent, or twice the 8 percent score he was given in the 2016 exit polls.

In November 2016, Trump got 13 percent support among black men and 4 percent support among black women, according to the exit polls. That very low support was critical to his victory in the Democrats’ now-demolished “Blue Wall” states.

The poll was “a cumulative analysis of 605,172 interviews SurveyMonkey conducted with Americans in 2017,” according to the Atlantic.

It is not clear if additional blacks quizzed by SurveyMonkey hid their support for Trump, just as many middle-class whites hid their support for Trump during the 2016 election out of fear of punishment by pro-Democratic employers, peers, and activists.

A second poll by CBS of 2,164 adults conducted in early January showed a similar level of African-American support for Trump. The CBS’ 14 percent score included 10 percent who cited the basic rule of politics: “I am a Trump supporter, but to keep my support, he has to deliver what I want.”

Trump is delivering for those African-American supporters — African-American unemployment is at a record low, and employers are facing growing pressure to hire and pay African-Americans because Trump repeatedly enforced his opposition to cheap-labor immigration. For example, Trump blocked the Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty which would have allowed U.S. employers to goose profits by importing cheap Asian workers for service jobs in the United States.

The New York Times admitted January 13:

As employers dip deeper into the pool of available labor, workers are coming off the economy’s sidelines. The participation rate for what economists call prime-age workers — those ages 25 to 54 — hit a seven-year high in December. Employment gains have been especially strong for groups that often face discrimination — unemployment for African-Americans fell to 6.8 percent in November, the lowest rate on record.

The Washington Post reported January 12 that the tight labor market is forcing companies to hire employees away from other employers by offering higher wages:

The unemployment rate in December was 4.1 percent, leaving employers struggling to attract and retain good workers and raising the prospect of higher wages as the United States approaches congressional elections in November.

“Employees today have lots of options in all corners of industry, whether you’re in fast food or retail or investment banking,” said Art Mazor, a principal at Deloitte Consulting. “This feels super tight.”

The CBS poll suggested Trump’s support can go higher than 14 percent. Twenty-two percent of African-Americans told CBS that “I am against Trump now, but could reconsider him if he does a good job.”

Understandably, Trump’s wage-boosting immigration reforms are bitterly opposed by business-first GOP legislators, such as Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner, and by immigrant-first Democrats, such as Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier. “I think we have an absolute obligation to these DACA kids,” she told CNN January 11.

Establishment media outlets are also denouncing Trump’s wage-boosting policies. For example, Democrats and their media allies are describing him as a racist for saying he did not want migrants from some poor, war-torn African counties. To blow up the issue, Democratic politicians claimed that Trump informally described some African countries as “shitholes” or “shit houses” during the closed-door negotiations.

Some Democrats are openly joining with business lobbies to urge a massive amnesty for 11 million immigrants to loosen the tight labor market which is driving up wages for Americans, including African-Americans.

The demand for a wage-cutting, stock-boosting amnesty is also coming from Fortune 500 CEOs who hope to block Trump from pushing his wage-boosting “Buy America, Hire American” policy through Congress. Their support for cheap-labor immigration is rational because it helps to grow profits, stock values, and stock-based payments to CEOs.

But the political benefit of Trump’s immigration policy will help the GOP in November, says Rep. Raul Labrador, a GOP chairman now running or the Idaho governorship.

GOP Majority Leader Rep. “Kevin McCarthy and the Senate leadership need to make it about this — if we can’t make a deal that takes care of the border security issue, then we need to walk away from the table and just say ‘Fine, let the American people decide,” Labrador told Breitbart News January 12.

“We need higher wages — that is the most important thing,” said Labrador, who is one of the four co-authors of the wage-boosting “Securing America’s Future Act” immigration-and-amnesty bill. “I know the American people will be on the side of security and enforcement and they will not stand with the Democrats,” said Labrador, who is retiring from Congress to run for the governorship of Idaho.

Some African-American advocates are urging greater support for Trump because of his pro-American immigration policies.

Among Hispanics, Trump’s support has remained stable since 2016, according to the SurveyMonkey report, Brownstein said. “Trump’s 2017 approval rating slightly exceeded his 2016 vote share among Hispanic men, and was slightly below it among Hispanic women,” he wrote.

WATCH: NYC Haitian Community Protests ‘Crooked Clintons’ Outside Former Clinton Foundation Office on 8th Anniversary of Haiti Earthquake

Haitians Protest Clintons

NEW YORK CITY, N.Y.–About a dozen members of New York City’s Haitian community and others protested the Clinton Foundation’s cronyism outside the organization’s former Midtown Manhattan office Friday afternoon on the eighth anniversary of the 2010 Haiti earthquake.

The demonstrators braved the rain Friday afternoon to stand under the scaffolding of 1271 Avenue of the Americas in Midtown Manhattan, even though the Clinton Foundation recently moved its offices after it shuttered the Clinton Global Initiative.

About ten to 12 demonstrators held signs to protest the Clinton Foundation’s use of State Department connections to award multi-million dollar contracts to Clinton cronies in Haiti.

One of the more colorful signs read, “Where the ‘Crooked Clintons’ belong—in a jail cell,” with a picture of Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton behind bars.

“How much money? Six billion dollars!” the protesters chanted, referencing the amount of money diverted from earthquake relief to the contracts.

These contracts, such as one multi-million dollar mining contract that Hillary Clinton’s brother received from the Haitian government, enabled Clinton Foundation donors to profit off the island nation as it struggled to rebuild from the disaster, which killed more than 300,000 people.

“The Clinton Foundation, which had an office in this building, stole $6 billion that was meant for the Haitian people.” said Dahoud Andre, one of the members of Komokoda, a New York City-based Haitian activist group leading the protest, as he spoke to a cameraman filming his statement on behalf of the group.

“The press over here, has not said anything to condemn the Clinton Foundation, and we hope that today, the press will take this opportunity to ask the Clintons what happened to these billions of dollars,” he added.

The organization, also known as the Committee to Mobilize Against Dictatorship in Haiti, serves to point out U.S. sponsorship of Haiti’s dictators. In 2017, they staged a protest in Brooklyn against the U.S.-backed Haitian president Jovenel Moise, who had been indicted for money laundering, and protested Hillary Clinton’s commencement speech at Brooklyn College.

Andre, the de-facto spokesperson for the group, told Breitbart News that this is the third year the group has held a protest outside the building.

“Every day on the anniversary of the earthquake we come here…to denounce them as the thieves and the liars that they are [and] to demand that the money that they stole be returned to the Haitian people,” Andre told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview.

When asked about the recent Justice Department investigation into the Clinton Foundation, Andre said that the American people have to hold the Justice Department and the Trump administration accountable for bringing the Clintons to justice.

“Last year, when we came after the election, we said we wanted to thank the American people for ensuring that the Clintons did not get back to the White House. But at the same time, we said they have to keep pressure on Donald Trump,” Andre said.

“This year, we understand that the Justice Department started an investigation. We want to make sure that the pressure stays on–that this is not whitewashed.”

Another protester who joined the group later was more skeptical of the Justice Department’s intentions.

The protester, Amdije “Amiee” Toska, told Breitbart News that she thinks Justice Department officials will drag out the investigation to get paid more.

“I think they are going to take a long time,” Toska said. “They keep playing games, and I’m tired of it.”

Toska, who was not part of Komokoda or the Haitian community, said she joined the protest in solidarity against Clinton.

“We’re talking about Hillary constantly, but what about the people?” said Toska, who said she was disgusted by Clinton and other Democrats’ treatment of poor people.

Toska, a New Yorker who has called the streets of Midtown her home for the past few months, eventually stripped down to her underwear during the protest and yelled, “Lock her up!”

Other Haitian groups throughout the country have staged protests against the Clintons and their foundation for stealing money from earthquake victims and giving it to their cronies. Some groups have done so for years.

In 2016, Haitian immigrants protested outside the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia against the Clinton Foundation’s pay-to-play schemes that hurt the Haitian people.

In 2014, another Haitian group protested in front of Bill and Hillary’s offices in New York against the Clintons’ “full support” of former Haitian President Michel Martelly, who had a reputation for putting his cronies in power.
