Former Speaker Of The House Of Representatives John Boehner speaks out in his new Tell-All. The details he lays out are shocking news about how he saw and felt about his own party (People.com).
John Boehner served as the 53rd Speaker of the United States House of Representatives from 2011 to 2015. A member of the Republican Party, he was the U.S. Representative for Ohio’s 8th congressional district from 1991 to 2015.
“You could be a total moron and get elected just by having an R next to your name,” “A lot of that went straight through the ears of most of them, especially the ones who didn’t have brains that got in the way,” he writes, adding later that the new GOP lawmakers only “wanted wedge issues and conspiracies and crusades.”
Boehner later describes his shock at Fox News’ growing tendency to feed paranoia about then-President Barack Obama, as well as baseless — and racist — conspiracy theories claiming he wasn’t born in the U.S.
John Boehner confirmed everything we all thought about Fox News and racism in the Republican Party.
President Obama really suffered a lot from those people, who hated him because of his skin color rather than his policy position.
What’s personally upsetting for me, is that Donald Trump took advantage of their hate and doubled down in questioning Obama’s birth (without any regard of the danger he placed upon President Obama and his family). Years later, after all the mudslinging he and Fox News threw at President Obama, they ironically find themselves complaining about unfair media coverage.
Donald Trump has rightly received a lot of disturbing criticism, however, Fox News is much more dangerous than any one man. This propaganda machine gets an average of 1.3 million total viewers on average daily (according to Nielsen ratings). The scariest thing about this network is its ability to turn headline news into a weapon of US vs THEM. As John Boehner puts it, Fox News enjoys the tendency to feed paranoia, wedge issues, and conspiracies.
Fox News is a Nightmare to our Democracy. They are fearful of the White race losing dominant power, and their fear is frightening and concerning to people of color.
Former Republican House Speaker John Boehner Sounds Off on GOP as ‘Crazytown’.
Black Conservatism is a political and social philosophy rooted in communities of African descent that aligns largely with the conservative ideology around the world. Black conservatives emphasize traditionalism, patriotism, self-sufficiency, and strong cultural and social conservatism within the context of the Black Church. .In the United States it is often, but not exclusively, associated with the Republican Party.
The Reconstruction era began the greatest shift of conservative African Americans in American politics in modern history. During the Reconstruction era, black voters began to align themselves more with the Republican party and its conservative ideologies
Understanding Black Conservatism can be broken down into three categories: Christianity, Patriotism, and Capitalism. Christianity and Faith are two different things, Christianity was created from white people’s perspective of a God who resembles them. They saw him as someone with blonde hair and blue eyes. Mistakenly, they share their God with Black Americans from their perspective. Patriotism taught us to love, devotion, and a sense of attachment to a homeland and alliance with other citizens. Sadly, Black Americans did not receive the same loyalty back. Capitalism is based on ownership and maximizing full profit potential. We are now ready to correct and confront their ideology.
Before Trump, Black Conservatives and the majority of White Americans loved and supported President Ronald Reagan. Reagan’s philosophy was, “Government is not the solution, Government is the problem” Before Ronald Reagan was President, he was a Hollywood star from 1940 to 1960, then enjoyed being a governor for one of the largest states in America, (California). Although many Black Conservatives admired Reagan’s illustrious career, shamefully, America did not offer the same opportunities to Black Americans during that time and era. Nonetheless, it didn’t stop Black Conservatism from supporting the Republican Party. Today we have new Black Conservatives (Candance Owens and the like), but the message is basically the same, “Government is bad” “get Government out of my life” Republicans and Conservatives, including Black Conservatives, seem to be confused as to who the government is and its functions. White Republicans with power understand clearly how well government works. They live in the best neighborhoods, have the best schools, parks, libraries, and more because they’ve mastered the importance of selecting and electing the right person who values their concerns and interest. I don’t understand their premises for misguiding people to hate government while they are benefiting so much from the government? Maybe they fear it’s not enough to go round? I cannot answer that for them.
The government is in all our lives, therefore it is incumbent upon us to learn how to get involved to help the government work for us the way we wish it would work. Republican Lawmakers are making it more difficult for people of color to vote. BLACK CONSERVATIVES, If you truly want to empower The Black Family and their communities you can begin by helping to make voting easier. After all, Powerful White Republicans have proven the power of selecting and electing the right person.
I have never understood how 74 million people could have voted for someone like Donald Trump (especially Black Conservatives). Obviously, he was way over his head as president. But he is a perfect example of someone telling you to do something or not to do something, while he reaps all the benefits from the very acts he employed you to do or not do (no one played victimhood. or cancel culture as well as Trump).
Elect people who see and understand your concerns. Too often we have voted for people who did not have our interest at heart however, that isn’t to say the government doesn’t work… we elected the wrong person. We all pay taxes; make your tax and vote count. It was encouraging to see Omarosa and Stacey (finally) beginning to understand the importance of government and how to help make it work better. REMEMBER WE THE PEOPLE are THE GOVERNMENT IF YOU DON”T LIKE THE GOVERNMENT YOU SEE, CHANGE THE PEOPLE YOU SEE. BLACK CONSERVATIVES Government is not your problem.
Fortunately for Joe Biden, he’s coming behind probably one of the worst presidents in United State history.
Let’s review for a moment…
Donald Trump lied the very first day of his presidency. Remember Trump advocating his inauguration crowd size was larger than that of President Obama, we all knew that was a lie.
By the time Trump left office according to the Washington Post fact-checkers Trump had made more than 30,573 false or misleading claims/in other words lies.
No President in the History of American ever came close to telling that many lies.
There are still many questions about Russia’s President Putin and Trump stealing the 2016 presidential election.
Sadly, more than 500,000 Americans died because of Donald Trump mishandling of the coronavirus from the beginning.
He failed at the simplest task of wearing a mask and didn’t encourage Americans and his supporters to wear a mask for their LIFE’S sake.
Subsequently, Trump is the first president in the United States history to be impeached twice. Because of his corrupt behavior, inability to be truthful, and his law-breaking dealings…Trump could be facing criminal charges, even worse, PRISON.
Not to diminish President Joe Biden’s successes, but he is coming behind an imbecile. Trump tried to steal a national election. Would it surprise anyone that he tried to cheat on his tax returns?”
President Joe Biden is a good man, doing some wonderful things,
And after four crazy years with Donald J, Trump, we finally have a President again.
Discrimination is the act of making unjustified distinctions between human beings based on the groups, classes, or other categories to which they are perceived to belong. People may be discriminated on the basis of race, gender, age, religion, or sexual orientation, as well as other categories. Discrimination especially occurs when individuals or groups are unfairly treated in a way which is worse than other people are treated, on the basis of their actual or perceived membership in certain groups or social categories. It involves restricting members of one group from opportunities or privileges that are available to members of another group
In 1921, Tulsa, Oklahoma’s Greenwood District, known as Black Wall Street, was one of the most prosperous African-American communities in the United States.
Thirty-five city blocks went up in flames, 300 people died, and 800 were injured with more than 9000 became homeless.
From Slavery to Jim Crow, and now this… On January 6, 2021, they did it again, destroying the Nation’s Capital with the hopes of stopping the certification of President-elect Joe Biden.
Fortunately for us, they failed in their attempt. Perhaps they had forgotten the resilience of Black people, who created an underground railroad to escape slavery. Overcame Jim Crow, through Black-Faith, and education-they unionized and created the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). Black people have never been cowards or inferior, quite the contrary. Nonetheless many White Folks continue to hate, divide, and destroy. They were unable to see a little Black girl would one day turn a Red state blue.
WHO IS STACEY ABRAMS
A 46-year-old Yale Law School grad, politician, attorney, and published author. Stacey Abrams spent years working to convince political power players that Georgia is a genuine two-party battleground, a Deep South state where the left could compete if it organized Black and other sporadic voters and stopped apologizing for being Democrats.
Boy did She delivered!
Not only did she give Joe Biden the victory in Georgia to become President, she also delivered two Democrats, to become Senators for The State Of Georgia (Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff).
By now, you know there’s NO-WAY these Republicans are going to accept defeat.
STAY WOKE FRIENDS
White Republicans are NOW trying to change the VOTING Laws, primarily to suppress the Black votes.
Can you believe they are trying to ban SOULS TO THE POLLS?
And that’s not all…
Nearly half of the new restrictive bills are aimed at limiting mail voting, even though Republicans have historically supported voting by mail. Multiple bills in Pennsylvania, Arizona, North Dakota, and Oklahoma are among those aiming to eliminate no-excuse absentee voting entirely.
Some states are going so far as to prevent eating and drinking in line while waiting to vote.
From the day Trump became President, our Democracy was under siege. Whether he understood about the government or not, he disrespected it, and ignored the laws provided from it. Trump did whatever he wanted to do without any corrections or push back from elected Republicans. Trump’s lawless behavior was celebrated and revered as strengths.
During the beginning of the Coronavirus, Trump first ignored it, then he played it down, even worse he politicized Mask wearing, and held large campaign rallies which resulted in hundreds of thousand of Americans’ death.
Our DEMOCRACY WAS SLAUGHTERED by the foolish acts of Donald J. Trump. Why aren’t there Laws preventing someone from carrying out such acts? Shouldn’t an American president be held to a higher standard? What happens when an American president breaks their Oath Of Office pledge? I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
DEMOCRACY WAS SLAUGHTERED when Trump carried out, ‘The Big Lie”. Trump and elected Republicans willfully and knowingly lied to their constituents about the election being stolen from them. Trump’s supporters believed the lie, and inevitably on January 6, they attacked and terrorized the Nation’s Capital in hopes of being able to, “stop the steal”.
Before Trump, The State Of Our Union Was Strong. According to The Washington Post Fact Checker’s, Trump told more than 30,500 lies. Under his administration more than 400,000 Americans died from the Coronavirus, and he ended his presidency with an attack on his own government. Through it all Trump is still a free man because Republicans overwhelmingly still protect and support him.
Former Senator Al Franken, Gov. Newsom ( of California), and Gov. Cuomo (of New York) should be baffled, if not outraged, by the double standard.
Trump has done far worse than any of the three gentlemen mentioned, and yet he was never removed from office nor imprisoned.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., would often state, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” Trump’s criminal activities have caused many to question justice.
February 22, 2021 The United State Supreme Court ruled against Trump ruling that he must turn over eight years of his corporate and personal tax returns to the state of New York prosecutors. In the past four years we all experienced how corrupt Trump truly is. Imagine having eight years worth of evidence in your hand of Trump’s many crimes. Maybe, just maybe, the Donald will get his just do; perhaps justice will finally be served (much like Al Capone) on Donald J. Trump.
DEMOCRACY WAS SLAUGHTERED
KETO Dieting, lose weight without losing great tasting food.
DATING from home, during this Pandemic season may be the safest way to meet interesting new people.
The actions of former President Donald Trump, on Jan. 6, 2021 resulting in his supporters rioting our Nation’s Capital, changed everything in America’s government of transition of power. Trump repeatedly fed his supporters lies and encouraged them to “fight like hell” to prevent Congress from carrying out their Congressional duties. In fact, their rallying cry was “Stop The Steal”. Unfortunately, their anger was built upon lies created by Trump ( Joe Biden received 306 electoral votes/needed only 270 and received more than seven million popular votes than Trump). Trump’s actions would be laughable had it not resulted in death, disgrace, and dishonor to our Nation’s Capital. Ironically, Trump’s fear of losing to Joe Biden caused him to do what he is accusing others of doing, stealing the election.
Inciting a riot on our Nation’s Capitol was one of the darkest days brought on our democracy since slavery.
Most Republicans are afraid to vote against Trump on any matter. They are also fearful of the backlash from his supporters. Nonetheless, Trump was impeached (the only President to be impeached twice) on an article of impeachment for “incitement of insurrection”. There were a few brave Republicans who placed Country over party.
When the books of , “What Happened” are written and closed, then reopened later in History, will it be kind to Trump and the Republican Party?
Trump’s actions were the greatest betrayal in America’s History. America’s President takes an oath: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Trump neglected his oath, instead he incited a riot on his own government. Trump’s actions were indefensible, irresponsible, reprehensible and deplorable.
The Republican Party must remind themselves that governing by popularity cannot maintain a democracy. Slavery was once popular in America, but it was wrong. Ignoring Trump’s action for the sake of what’s popular among your political base is wrong. The notion that this Nation can heal and “unite” without any accountability and no consequences is absurd and misguided. Congress doesn’t have a choice. Trump must be impeached and the Senate must convict for the sake of our Democracy. History is being created today, will it say we kept our republic?
“A republic, if you can keep it” Benjamin Franklin.
It’s been reported that former President Trump doesn’t have any remorse for his actions. If this is true, then this should put the fear of God in every American. Just imagine: what if, Trump is not convicted, decides to run again and loses again?
“We’re Not Afraid Of Trump Running Again, We’re Afraid Of Him Losing”
Fox News has turned the riot on our Nation’s Capital into a group of friendly protesters demonstrating their Freedom of Speech. They’ve gone as far as to imply that Antifa spearheaded the riot. The scariest thing about this network is its ability to turn headline news into a weapon to create racial division. (xtradonaire.wordpress.com/worse than donald j. trump)
In the aftermath of the riot which took place on our Nation’s Capital Jan. 6, Fox News, QAnon, and White Nationalist refuse to curtail their rhetoric. On the contrary, they amplified it. Trumpism made The Republican Party accept fascism so much so, they normalized it.
DATING from home, during this Pandemic season may be the safest way to meet interesting new people.
The Fascism propaganda machine and Fox News developed language to blur the lines with, “false equivalence” “whataboutism” and “both sides”.
This sort of argument makes it difficult for average Americans to distinguish the difference between Truth and Lies. According to the FBI, White Supremacist and anti-government militia groups are a major threat to our democracy, much more than Antifa or other similar Black groups. (FBI.gov-FBI).
The Propaganda Machine Has Made Fascism Popular through the language of words, as they no longer wear White Sheets and burn Crosses in yards.
The Fascism Machine promoted and supported QAnon Marjorie Taylor Greene, who ended up winning the Georgia House seat (Nov.4, 2020) in a landslide victory. The Republican Party was fully aware of her conspiracy theories, nevertheless they supported and promoted her.
The Republican Party was disappointedly surprised to learn that Americans at large had found out about Marjorie Green, disapproved of her and her politics.
The Presidential election may be over, but the stain and racial divide from Trumpism is still prevalent today.
I’m not certain how or if the political parties will come together, I’m not sure if we the people will come together, I’m not sure if a Nation divided can continue to stand.
The Propaganda Machine Has Made Fascism Popular, so popular that it has torn the fabric of our Democracy apart. Many Americans have given up and have fallen into the cracks of uncertainty.
I hope THE STATE OF OUR UNION video will encourage you crawl out of the cracks and demand CERTAINTY, TRUTH and DEMOCRACY!
After witnessing the incident at the Capitol earlier this week, it becomes increasingly common to stumble upon a post wishing for “Obama to magically come back” or seeing internet forums discussing how even six years ago there was seemingly more peace. It’s important to remember, however, that Obama’s presidency wasn’t exempt from the opposition. The majority of White Americans hated President Obama, but no one hated him more than Donald J. Trump. From 2011 to 2016 Trump showcased his hatred towards Obama by peddling conspiracy theories about his birth certificate thus perpetuating the birther movement. That one single action helped him tremendously to secure overwhelming support. Add that to his blatantly racist claims and his ability to not only speak to but to encourage millions of Americans to “take their country back and make America great again” AKA ensuring that immigrants, LGBTQ+ members, and minorities especially black Americans feel unwelcome in a country they call home. This ultimately resulted in him winning the nomination and becoming the 45th President of the United States.
The White House Press Corps soon learned Trump was extremely different from other Presidents, in that, his inability to be truthfully created a problem from the beginning of his Presidency. The Press Corps didn’t understand the mood of many White Americans as well as Trump, little did they know, he would turn the table on them by making them out to be, “fake news” and “the enemy of the people”
Furthermore, many people were loyal to Trump, while Trump was loyal to no one.
History will be unkind to Trump for several reasons, but his attempts to steal the Presidential election, trying to stage a coup, then inciting his supporters to riot the Nation’s capitol will be the harshest stain on his legacy forever.
While at this point it should come as no surprise that Donald Trump has had a detrimental effect on the soul of our nation, it is also, important to remember that Fox News has been fueling the fire of divisiveness for years.
Before Trump, Fox News was not only highlighting, but widening the gap between races in our country as a result of the misinformation and negative narrative they painted of minorities. As of today, millions of Americans watch them on a daily basis and have been doing so for years. Fox News created Trump, and I promise you, they are in the process of creating another one even worse. If you think Trump is diabolical (and he is), Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham (just to mention a few) take the concept of painting racially problematic portrayals of marginalized communities to greater heights. While Trump may be passionate, and upfront with his racism, these guys are not only passionate, but highly intelligent in using their platforms to feed a twisted narrative to millions of Americans.
It’s unbelievable how Fox News has turned the riot on our Nation’s Capital into a group of friendly protesters demonstrating their Freedom of Speech. They’ve gone as far as to imply that Antifa spearheaded the riot.
The scariest thing about this network is its ability to turn headline news into a weapon to create racial division. When Trump’s supporters were raiding the Nation’s Capitol, Fox News was airing George Floyd’s protesters from the summer. Even as you read this blog, they are airing BLM protest from the summer instead of focusing on what just happened. It’s not surprising their audience become ignorant to the true facts and angered by what they have been told of what’s going on in America.
Have they not learn the danger in this methodology?
After experiencing what we’ve all have just gone through, (especially the White House Staff, and Political Leaders), it’s inexcusable on Fox’s behalf, to compare BLM protesting the unjust murder of unarmed black Americans and systemic racism to an angry misinformed mob rioting our Capitol, and causing death over an election that was never stolen but lost by seven million votes (disconnected with facts, thanks to Fox and Trump). Intentionally confusing the two is by design, which is why they are as guilty as Trump and the rioters.
Unfortunately, there are always a few people of every race willing to sell-out for monetary gain; Fox News seeks out such people. Regrettably, and disgracefully, too many Black Americans appear on Fox News programs carrying out Fox’s misinformation, hoping to manipulate Black communities through them. These guys take no prisoners, they are devilish.
So what’s worse than Trump?
Simple, a large platform that blurs right and wrong and paints facts out to be alternative thus, destroying not only the core principles of our nation but the principles of human decency.

To compare great leaders to Christ is concerning, but to compare Donald Trump to Jesus Christ is downright blasphemy.
Conservative pundits get extremely defensive about their unyielding loyalty to Trump. Fox News and Conservative Talk Radio may not have compared Trump to Christ overtly, but they have created and given a platform to people who do.
Billy Graham, was once a household name, he was the largest religious figure in America. Although he’s no longer living, his name lives on. Graham’s son, The 700 Club, Paula White, Kenneth Copeland, and other widely known religious leaders, have given their support to Trump. These religious leaders preached that Trump was sent by and from God to save us, much like Christ.
I often wonder, how much money did Trump pay these so-call religious leaders to support him and to trick their congregation to support him?
Major News networks would not give these religious zealots a platform, but they were always welcome on Fox News and Conservative Talk Radio without any push back or corrections.
Conservatives and most Southern Baptist preachers, teachers, and leaders have done a disservice to America and to millions of faith believing Christian, by shoving Trumpism as Christ-like.
Some people will do almost anything for money, Judas Iscariot turned over Christ, today-some are doing the same thing for political expedient, and of course for money. It’s really sad and painful to watch. Must Christ be crucified again today for the same things he already died for yesterday?
New Living Translation He was despised and rejected— a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. I don’t recall seeing this side of Trump. On the contrary, I have seen Biden suffer from grief and sorrows; Biden was rejected twice running for President.
Luke 6:35 Verse Concepts But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He, Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men. Can anyone honestly say, these values resemble Donald Trump?
When I think of all the hateful words and things Trump has said and done, I find it irresponsible for anyone to possibly confuse and connect Trump’s values to that of Christ.
What are you willing to ignore about Trump? Hundreds and thousands of Americans dying from the Coronavirus? Children placed in cages separated from their families? Calling Africa and other Countries Shit-hole-countries? Promoting White Nationalists, “Good on both sides” …the list is endless, which is why I’m deeply disturbed by the Christ they see in Trump.
This Presidential election has revealed a great deal of information to us all. Conservatives are exceedingly happy to have received over 71 million American voters. The rest of us, 75 million and more, are happy and sad at the same time. We’re sad because racism is still too strong in our country-we’re happy because we have a new President and the first woman (woman of color) as vice president.
Unlike the Right, we do not see Joe Biden as a Christ, but we are hopeful that he will strive to be a character of principle and truthful.
The Bible teaches that Christ was crucified for our sins, that we may live. This powerful teaching gets harder to preach and teach when others keep bringing Christ down to become equal to men like Trump. The thought is despicable and is driven by greed. Nonetheless, prosperity preachers did their best to manipulate not only Americans, but Christ, his Angels, and the weather to reelect Trump.
Trump’s so-call spiritual advisor (Paula White), tried to send Angels from Africa to help Trump win the Presidency. Apparently Minister White is suffering from amnesia because the Bible clearly states that God is a spirit, and they that worship Him must worship him in spirit and truth (John 4:24). Place the word truth next to Donald Trump and let that soak in for a moment.
When the death and resurrection of Christ is reduced to Prosperity theology, it opens the door for some to promote Trump as God’s chosen one. This kind of teaching is sacrilegious, but fake preachers are getting rich from this kind of teaching. The thought of Killing Christ’s teaching is irrelevant to these prosperity preachers. These types of preachers are more similar to Trump than they are to God. They pretend to care for the poor, while they live in mansion, their real love is money and power which is why they love Trump. Their teaching is perverted, it’s impossible for them to save the lost, when they are lost.
Trump has done a lot of bad things to this country, the hatred between the two parties has escalated to the verge of eruption- we need healing.
Manipulating the gospel of Christ for one’s wealth is not only diabolical, it’s dangerous. If we allow these types of teachers to continue, normalcy will become abnormal, and our democracy will fail, because a house divided cannot stand.
The Paula White’s of this world will lie to you to get your money. Had she read the good book, she would have learned that money cannot save you or buy love. Paula’s teaching is powerless and destructive, we don’t need a spiritual advisor Killing a Christ, rather, resurrecting a Christ, for democracy’s sake. Since the election is over, hope is renewed. The possibilities of coming together as Americans again, finding a cure to the virus, dealing with systemic racism, all this and more are now possible since Donald Trump is no longer President.
The election is now over but Trump is refusing to accept the fact that he lost. Perhaps he believed Paula White, when she said, “I hear the sound of rain” (the only sound she heard was money falling in her bank account) perhaps he believed she could bully God to save his presidency- or maybe he had forgotten Paula is much like him, places greed over humanity. To take advantage of the most vulnerable is like Killing Christ’s reasons for existing. Many of these prosperity preacher’s congregation are made-up of poor people and people of color. It’s clearly understandable why so many Americans are skeptical about religion and Christ.
On January 20, 2021, Donald Trump will no longer be Commander-in-Chief and Paula “crooked” White (with all the rest of those so-call religious leaders supporting Trump) will longer be the nation’s spiritual advisors, the resurrection of a better America will rise, thus, it is written.
