Susan B. Anthony memorial refuses to
accept Trump's pardon of civil rights leader

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 8/22/2020 4:37:30 AM

A group honoring the life and legacy of American civil rights icon Susan B. Anthony has refused to accept President Trump's posthumous pardon of her, arguing the effort would give unearned legitimacy to the 1873 court proceedings that found her guilty of breaking a law that prohibited women from voting. Trump this week announced he was pardoning Anthony for the conviction, a measure the president took on the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which recognized the right of women to vote.

I don't think they have standing to make that choice. The left is outsmarted by Trump again.

I think it is not that Trump-haters believe Trump's policies can be effective and positive (whatever they are), it is just that they so desperately want all the power that comes with the office for themselves, not to benefit the people.

They have nothing to do with it. Whether they accept it or not is totally irrelevant. It isn't newsworthy.

This is pure vindictiveness. Think these people won’t make life hell on earth for Trump supporters if, God forbid, they are successful in November? Democrats have lost all sense of reason. They are running on pure power hungry hatred and anything good is their mortal enemy.

Then Susan B Anthony’s name shall forever be condemned in this household as unworthy of recognition. Every household in the US should do the same. Wipe her name from history. Condemn the women who refuse to acknowledge this president should likewise be held in contempt. You want equality? You got it, babe...

I understand why they refuse to accept the pardon, because it "would give unearned legitimacy to the 1873 court proceedings that found her guilty of breaking a law that prohibited women from voting." HOWEVER, Susan B. Anthony WAS found guilty of breaking the law. All their blathering does not change that fact rendering their refusing to accept the pardon meaningless.

Do you think that these people (and others like them with severe TDS) will ever realize that Trump is purposely exposing their insanity for all to see? As crazy as it is, I do find their behavior quite amusing. They also don't seem to understand that their rigidity of TDS is turning many people against them, some of whom were on their side politically before Trump came along and peeled off their masks.

While the group’s assertion about the 1873 court proceedings may be valid, they don’t have any standing to reject a Presidential Pardon as that is the President’s call. At this point in time who would know Susan B. Anthony’s true feelings about being pardoned?

Speaking nothing original here, but if Barack had come up with the idea and trotted his cloddy wife out to headline an event announcing it, there would have been oceans of joyful tears and 24/7 thanks and adoration. Barack should be bowing and prostrating himself in total submission to the vastly superior mind and creativity of his successor.

Donald Trump also pardoned Jack Johnson the first black heavyweight boxing champion. He was convicted of violating the Mann Act even though the act was passed after he crossed state lines with the woman in question (he married her). Johnson was no saint but it was pretty clear the sports establishment was out to get him. There were lots of people including Mike Tyson who wanted Obama to grant him a posthumous pardon but he never did. President Trump pardoned Johnson in 2018.

Unlike Margaret Sanger Susan B. Anthony believe women having children was not an impediment to a fulfilling work and home life. She campaigned for businesses to accommodate women who were pregnant and those with children. Not kill the unborn so one could work. Sounds like Sanger might have been in the pocket of big business.

The nags are throwing schift against the walls to hide the fact that Susan's first vote was for a Republican, retired Union General Grant. You know, the guy that totally defeated the southern Democrat rebellion against the Constitution.

That vote she cast was for a Republican, Ulysses S. Grant! Seeing that they are not blood relatives and old Susan B. Anthony did not mention the museum in her will or leave them power of attorney to act on her behalf, they don't have standing to legally accept or reject anything in her name. It is pure malice and anti-Trump hatred that motivates them to get publicity and a pat on the back from fellow running dog Lefties. So now a museum dedicated to anyone gets to control that person's afterlife! So, if a posthumous medal was given to Ms. Anthony, or a street or maybe a school was named after her, these idiots think they get to accept or reject the honor? Really? Says who? Just a bunch of old hens clucking.

Perhaps giving Democrat women the right to vote has hurt America? Look what Kamala Harris has done to poor, crime-ridden California. Kamala's laugh sounds like a Hyena. She looks like the mean, angry wife of Vladimir Lenin. The Soviets sold a very sweet ice cream to honor Lenin's wife. I would not touch their sick ice cream with a ten foot pole. I will never vote for an Obama DemocRAT again.

Pardons do not lend legitimacy to bad laws. In fact, pardons are often used to vindicate those who have been unjustly convicted of breaking bad laws. That said, self-appointed "representatives" of a person who died years ago have no say in whether or not the President pardons said person. To be honest, even Anthony herself cannot reject being pardoned If she were still alive.

A number of Democrat mayors from Minnesota endorsed President Donald Trump for a second term on Friday as Vice President Mike Pence campaigns in the state. "Like many in our region, we have voted for Democrats over many decades. We have watched as our constituents' jobs left not only the Iron Range, but our country. By putting tariffs on our products and supporting bad trade deals, politicians like Joe Biden did nothing to help the working class. We lost thousands of jobs, and generations of young people have left the Iron Range in order to provide for their families with good-paying jobs elsewhere.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the mob, each in their own way, last week increased the risk that we will face a fairly grave constitutional moment. Mrs. Pelosi, in an unscripted moment, with her usual charm, identified the president and his allies in Congress (one can only assume she meant all the congressional Republicans) as domestic enemies of the United States. For her part, Mrs. Clinton publicly advised Democratic presidential candidate Jose[h R. Biden not to concede the election under any circumstances. The mob attacked a U.S. senator in the street.

Biden’s race-centered strategy is very clear; the depth of its Machiavellian quality is less so. There was no subtlety in Biden’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention last week. It immediately established race as its theme and rarely diverted. In doing so, Biden’s acceptance speech revealed the nuance of the strategy he intends to pursue to the White House. Just over a year ago, Democrats were beginning their grueling debate marathon. So crowded was their field, they had to split their debates. By chance, Kamala Harris and Joe Biden shared the stage on June 27. Biden was already stumbling and vulnerable,

Frankly, some of what he says seems to at least partly contradict other things he’s saying but I guess that’s what happens sometimes when you’re reacting honestly and not just picking sides.

And on Day 4, there was no more Mr. Nice Guy! Republicans spent the better part of three nights in their convention presenting softer and gentler sides of President Trump, but the president gets the final words and he came out Thursday in a fighting mood. His acceptance speech detailed his successes and offered promises aplenty for a second term, but the emphasis and energy were committed to a scorched-earth attack on Joe Biden and the Democrats. Trump threw so many punches at his opponent that, had it been a real heavyweight boxing match, the referee would have stopped it in the middle rounds out of mercy.

CNN is the least-watched of the three cable-news networks, and Lemon’s program “CNN Tonight” typically gets a little more than a million viewers, or less than a third of the audience for most primetime hours on Fox News Channel. Very few people were watching when Don Lemon made news Tuesday night, by revealing how deeply his network is embedded with the presidential campaign of Joe Biden. Discussing the riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, with fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, Lemon expressed concern that mob violence would damage the Democrats’ chances in November:

The Republican convention yesterday evening featured a speech by Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director who today is a pro-life activist. The substance of Johnson’s speech has received markedly little coverage, as most reports instead attacked the credibility of her conversion story or dredged up her controversial comments on other subjects. But what Johnson said about abortion is worth remembering. “For most people who are pro-life, abortion is abstract. They can’t even conceive of the barbarity,” she said, after telling the story of assisting with an abortion procedure while working at Planned Parenthood. “They don’t know about the ‘products of conception’ room in abortion clinics,

It is sometimes underappreciated how new professional sports is as a dominant cultural phenomenon. For the vast majority of human history, sports has been overwhelmingly played by amateurs. And even in America, it is only in the past fifty years that this professionalized version of sport became a route to wealth. Baseball, which has the longest professional sports history in the United States, illustrates this: the average MLB salary is up an inflation-adjusted 3,000 percent since the late 1960s.

Chelsea Clinton says she wants her three kids to understand that they are 'white children of privilege'—and to 'erode that privilege throughout their lives' in an effort to make sure that all Americans have the right to vote. The 40-year-old former First Daughter spoke with Massachusetts Democratic Representative Ayanna Pressley on a 'Women for Biden' video call today, and the two discussed the US' history of voter suppression, and the ways some people still face challenges in voting today. Chelsea said that while she taught them about the importance of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, she also explained how that victory

While the Penzeys Spices store in Kenosha was not damaged during violent protests in the city, its CEO wants to "loot" his own store. Bill Penzey wrote to customers of his Wauwatosa-based chain of spice shops that he supports the mission behind the protests in Kenosha in response to a police officer shooting Jacob Blake in the back seven times at close range. "Someone wrote to say that you would be singing a different tune if it was your store being looted," Penzey wrote in the email. "I'm by no means perfect but seriously no, I wouldn't. Human life means everything; stuff, not so much."

Republican lobbyist and power broker Matt Schlapp told Yahoo News today that he is “disappointed” in his former boss, George W. Bush, for snubbing President Trump amid a daunting reelection effort. Bush has been noticeably quiet during this Republican National Convention, issuing not so much as a statement expressing support for the president.(Snip) “When you see the socialist agenda that’s being put forward by the Democratic Party, I think you can get past some of your personal animosity and support the president, especially when you see what the Democrats want to do to the policy legacy that you care about,”

Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s performance during an interview late Thursday on CNN captured plenty of attention, but for all the wrong reasons. Speaking with CNN host Anderson Cooper, the Democrat nominee continuously stared off-screen, almost as if he was reading talking points from a script. Watch (*Cringe warning):(Tweet/Video) While it’s possible that he may have simply been staring off into space as he spoke, that wasn’t the impression gleaned by critics, including former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell and Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

I watched the 2020 Republican National Convention on C-Span, largely because the screen is uncluttered with banners and preview windows and they hang around at the end of such events for awhile, particularly when President Trump, Vice-President Mike Pence, or First Lady Melania is the speaker. I would try to turn to Fox for analysis only to see first up the shining visage of a Marie Harf or a Juan Williams, the Democrat who has lately been obsessing about something called “QAnon violence” whatever that is. Mornings at Fox have not been much better, with the likes former DNC chair Donna Brazile who, on Tuesday morning’s episode, lost it entirely...
