Several black leaders in South Carolina who were listed as supporters of the Buttigieg campaign’s “Douglass Plan” distanced themselves from the proposal and the campaign when pressed for comment, saying that the campaign was “intentionally vague” in asking for their endorsements. According to a report from The Intercept, three South Carolina black leaders — Columbia City Councilwoman Tameika Devine, Rehoboth Baptist pastor and state Representative Ivory Thigpen, and Johnnie Cordero, chair of the state party’s Black Caucus — all expressed misgivings over the way that the Buttigieg campaign featured their names prominently in an open letter published in the the HBCU Times touting the plan’s details. “We are over 400 South Carolinians,

How does separating black health plans from the rest of the citizenry help racism? This sounds like it should be the Douglas plan with one s, since it brings back slavery to a system that doesn't work. Lincoln, the Republican, won that debate and we fought a civil war so that we would all be treated equally. Why is it that the democrats continue to insist that we make divisions deeper rather than treating everyone as human rather than a color code? I don't appreciate anyone who would divide the nation in any way. As the President is fond of saying we are ONE NATION under GOD.

Little Peter is overreaching but I would imagine he has to do a lot of that. The main problem with his plan is that systemic racism does not exist. Yes, there are bigots in each segment of the population, as you would suspect, since it's human nature but it's not mainstream and the actual racists exaggerate a lot. Since Pete polled at 0 in South Carolina his numbers can not drop further so what did he have to lose by claiming support that doesn't exist? He figured that if the lie worked for Obama it would work for him too but he doesn't have the advantage of skin tone that Obama did.

Frederick Douglass was one of the great heroes of the black community back then. Appropriating the name of one of their heroes for his own sick agenda should be earning him the ire of the black community today. He seems to have no problems with lying about his own family members, attacking Christians and stalking the VP, as well as lying to our faces in general. He is much much worse than Obama was. At least Obama had the good sense to know where to draw the line when it came to lying during his campaign.

From what I have read, there doesn't seem to be any way for Buttigieg to gain the trust and the votes of the black communities. Older blacks hold his sexual preferences against him and younger blacks don't seem to be considering him at all.

Odd that Buttguy would name his plan after Frederick Douglass. He obviously don't know much about history. Douglass was a Republican.

Here's What Sugar Does to Your Brain 8 replies
Posted by MissMolly 11/17/2019 3:28:23 PM Post Reply
We love sweet treats. But too much sugar in our diets can lead to weight gain and obesity, Type 2 diabetes and dental decay. We know we shouldn't be eating candy, ice cream, cookies, cakes and drinking sugary sodas, but sometimes they are so hard to resist. It's as if our brain is hardwired to want these foods. As a neuroscientist my research centers on how modern day "obesogenic," or obesity-promoting, diets change the brain. I want to understand how what we eat alters our behavior and whether brain changes can be mitigated by other lifestyle factors. Your body runs on sugar — glucose to be precise.

As Sen. Kamala Harris’ (D-CA) campaign for her party’s presidential nomination continues to implode, some in the media are looking for answers. ABC News shot first, asking if Harris “proof that America isn’t ready for a woman of color as president?” The article began with quotes from Harris making the argument herself. She had previously spoken about her “electability” several times, and in May she went ahead and wondered whether “America was ready for a woman and a woman of color to be president of the United State of America.” She made the claim on “The View.”

In the fall of 2015, a rash of posters appeared around Copenhagen. One, in pink letters laid over an image of chicken eggs, asked, “Have you counted your eggs today?” A second — a blue-tinted close-up of human sperm — inquired, “Do they swim too slow?” The posters, part of a campaign funded by the city to remind young Danes of the quiet ticking of their biological clocks, were not universally appreciated. They drew criticism for equating women with breeding farm animals. The timing, too, was clumsy: For some, encouraging Danes to make more babies while television news programs showed Syrian refugees trudging through Europe

The whistleblower whose complaint about President Trump's communications with Ukraine launched House impeachment proceedings was still attending White House meetings recently and may have spoken to Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman prior to filing the complaint, according to the Washington Post. On Saturday, the outlet published details about the steps a CIA analyst took to blow the whistle after the president urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a July 25 phone call to start an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden, who is also leading the pack of 2020 Democrats. Notably, the Post was clear that the whistleblower is male. "The analyst had served on the National Security Council

The Democratic presidential battle is on the brink of being blown apart as more candidates join the fray and voters continue to search for someone who can defeat President Trump. No one — including the top tier of Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders — has been able to close the deal with Democrats. Biden is too shaky and old, Warren and Sanders are too far left and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg is too inexperienced. That leaves a gaping opening for a newcomer like former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick or potential candidate Michael Bloomberg or even Hillary Clinton. Patrick’s 11th-hour entrance into the race buttressed the argument

Poor Adam Schiff. The House Intelligence Committee chairman, in kicking off Day Two of impeachment hearings, was trying to maintain a show of law and order and professionalism and such and such — but Reps. Jim Jordan and Elise Stefanik kept interrupting him with calls for points of order. It was like Day One all over again. This was Stefanik, Day One: “Mr. Chairman, before we hear from the witnesses, I have a parliamentary inquiry … Mr. Chairman, when can we anticipate a response to our November 9 letter requesting certain individual witnesses to be called.” Schiff ducked and dodged, and answered that three of the witnesses requested by Republicans were scheduled

Democrats laid into the former president after he urged them to consider a moderate approach during a fundraising meeting Friday. Climate activists and pundits turned on Obama, suggesting on Twitter that he was enabling that white supremacists gain a foothold in American politics.

Janet Jackson fans are not happy with the singer. They accused the star of lip-syncing during her RNB performance Friday night in Brisbane, Australia, and some walked out in protest. One fan told The Sunday Mail that the 53-year-old's set was a "disaster." "When Janet Jackson came on it was just a disaster," one attendee said. "Her sound was just terrible. She would be singing and then all of a sudden just do random stuff." Jackson was also slammed after similar things happened during a performance in Perth on Nov. 8.

He’s the million-dollar minister. The Rev. Al Sharpton raked in $1,046,948 from his own charity last year, according to National Action Network’s latest tax filings obtained by The Post. Sharpton got a $324,000 salary — 32% higher than his 2017 pay — in addition to a $159,596 bonus and $563,352 in “other compensation.” The Harlem-based nonprofit — which Sharpton controls as president and CEO — said the extra cash was to make up for the years from 2004 to 2017 when he didn’t get his full pay. NAN said it hired an executive compensation firm that determined the good reverend was owed $1.252 million — but he was generously willing to take

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has been stalling in polls, announced a two-step plan Friday aimed at escaping from the healthcare trap she has gotten herself in. But in reality, the new proposal is likely to blow up in her face. To this point in her presidential campaign, Warren has allied with Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont to stake out an extreme position by insisting that anything short of a $34 trillion overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system, which would require kicking 180 million people off of private insurance, was insufficient. In doing so, she has railed against plans from other candidates, including former Vice President Joe Biden

CNN reports that in a private meeting this week, top Democrats conceded that the polls on impeachment were unlikely to shift, and that their basic message is failing to break through for huge swaths of Americans. This is very close to admitting that their ultimate goal, of removing president Trump from office will not be achieved. The reason this would mean game over for the removal effort is that only a significant uptick for impeachment in polling, especially among Republicans who have been rock solid in support of Trump, could lead to GOP votes to convict in the senate.

Upset at what he called preconditions imposed by the National Football League, quarterback Colin Kaepernick at the last minute moved his scheduled tryout on Saturday away from the Atlanta Falcons training facility to a local high school where media could attend. The former starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers is seeking a return to the NFL three years after his protests against racial injustice roiled the sport. He has contended that teams would not sign him because they wanted to distance themselves from the protests, which U.S. President Donald Trump blasted as unpatriotic and disrespectful.

Until a month or so ago, virtually no one outside of the seven circles of hell that is the State Department had heard of Marie Yovanovitch. Even the intrepid John Solomon had not heard of her until March of this year. He had interviewed Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko who told him that Yovanovitch gave him a "do not prosecute" list the first time he met with her. He was angered by her list which he justifiably saw it as interference in Ukraine's government. He felt she was meddling in their anti-corruption investigations by telling him who should not be investigated.

TAMPA — From the moment the NFL announced its hasty plan for a Colin Kaepernick workout this weekend, the questions have been flying. After all this time, why the sudden rush? Did some team request this? How many general managers will show up? Is this simply a ploy for atonement by the NFL? Yet, around here, a more important question needs to be asked: Can Kaepernick help the Buccaneers? It’s an interesting and legitimate question with, at this point, no clear answer. Kaepernick has not been in an NFL uniform in nearly three years so it’s worth wondering if his skills have atrophied.

Of course, presidents appoint ambassadors, but people don’t insult people, especially when they’re giving testimony before the Congress of the United States.”Host Margaret Brennan asked Pelosi about the debate over whether Trump

Last Saturday, Rudy Giuliani was spotted dining out at a Manhattan hotspot and loudly gabbing about his plans to start a podcast, like a man without a care in the world. And in fairness, it’s possible that, thanks to the brain decay the ex-mayor has clearly suffered, he thinks he has nothing to worry about. Other people in his position, though, would likely be more than a bit concerned about their future, given that, based on a new report, the president’s lawyer is now the subject of three different investigations.

'It is not coincidental that at times there is a resurgence of symbols typical of Nazism,' Francis said in an address to participants of an international conference on criminal law. 'And I must confess to you that when I hear a speech someone responsible for order or for a government, I think of speeches by Hitler in 1934, 1936,' he said, departing from his prepared address. 'With the persecution of Jews, gypsies, and people with homosexual tendencies, today these actions are typical (and) represent ''par excellence'' a culture of waste and hate.

The Ruling Class hates the lesser mortals who populate the realm they think they rightly rule. When Flyover Country forced Donald Trump on them as president, the outrage that was born of the initial shock grew into outright disdain for those put him into power. Senior Deep State bureaucrats like Peter Strzok and Lisa Page may be able to smell Trump supporters at Walmart, but for really intense class snobbery, there are few places that do it better than Harvard. At Harvard, few professors carry more political cachet than Laurence Tribe, who holds the title “University Professor,” (a very big deal at Harvard) and teaches constitutional law at Harvard Law School.
