www.blackamericaweb.com By Clarissa Hamlin Auntie Maxine and others are just tired of Trump. Trump is on notice once again! Black Democrats are expected to boycott the president’s first State of the Union address on January 30 after his racist rant referring to Haiti and several African nations as “shithole countries” last week. Here is a list of Democratic Congressional Reps who are tired of Trump. Maxine Waters Auntie Maxine is not having the president’s hate! She called for the immediate impeachment of Trump in a strong statement on Friday. “Donald Trump is a racist and indecent man with no good values who is woefully unfit and undeserving of the office in which he serves,” Waters said. “That this president, a deeply flawed human being with no understanding of public policy, would make such ill-informed and deplorable comments about Haitians, Salvadorans, and immigrants from African countries, merely underscores … [Read more...] about They’re Out!

Now, yesterday, Iran commandeered two U.S. vessels that American sailors were traveling on in the Persian Gulf. Now, Iran was claiming that the vessels entered its territorial waters. And after the sailors were back in U.S. custody, the rogue regime in Tehran released a video of when they were seized showing the sailors kneeling, with their hands behind their heads.

Now, some say this could be a violation of the U.S. military code of conduct. Watch this. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) … [Read more...] about Hannity: Here’s the real state of the Union
President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address was competently delivered and — for him — relatively inoffensive. The mainstream media and the television pundits will surely deem it to be a presidential moment, representative of yet another pivot to the center. But one speech does not erase Trump’s record. The speech’s banality — its embrace of optimism and platitude — is a mask. Do not be fooled: Political extremism, divisive rhetoric and bizarre behavior have characterized the first year of Trump’s presidency and underlie many of the harmless-sounding proposals he talked about Tuesday night. This is the president, recall, who rose to political power on the racist lie that his predecessor was born in Kenya, and he ran for president while calling to ban all Muslimsfrom the country and deriding Mexican immigrants as rapists. He was slow to denounce white nationalists, who have looked to him as a … [Read more...] about The Hidden Extremism Of Trump’s State Of The Union
