Black lawmakers want remove confederate statues from Capitol! Really??? Rethink some facts before!!!

To those who are so intent on eradicating all vestiges, symbols and institutions that are rooted in the Civil War and thus whitewashing history, they need to look beyond Civil War Monuments and take aim at the Democratic Party.
Fact: No Republican ever owned a slave. The Republican Party was born out of the Abolitionist Movement in 1856.
Fact: Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, emancipated the slaves in his Emancipation Proclamation in 1863.
Fact: The overwhelming majority of Democrats supported slavery.
Fact: The 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution, were passed by Republican Congresses following the Civil War. These amendments were opposed by the Democrats. These amendments abolished slavery, gave citizenship rights to all former slaves and guaranteed former slaves the right to vote.
Fact: Southern Democrats instituted Jim Crow laws and poll taxes that prevented Blacks from voting.
Fact: The KKK was created as a front group for the Democratic Party to terrorize Blacks.
Fact: President Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, was a proponent of “eugenics”, aka racial purity.
Fact: Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, was also a proponent of “eugenics” and set up PP locations in the areas of inner cities populated by Blacks.
Fact: Senator Robert Byrd, US Senator from WV from 1959 to 2010 and a Democrat, was a Klansman. He has over 40 buildings, bridges and roads named after him.
Fact: The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed because over 80% of Republicans in both the Senate and House voted for the legislation, providing the margin to push the Act through Congress. The Democrats had overwhelming majorities in both houses, but could not pass the legislation.

Just the facts folks!!!!

Economy adds 209.000 more jobs in July; unemployment rate at a 16-year low

US created 209,000 jobs in July, vs 183,000 jobs expected
The U.S. economy added 209,000 jobs in July and the unemployment rate dipped to 4.3 percent, according to a government report Friday.
The report comes with the economy at a crossroads as President Trump has promised 3 percent economic growth.

The U.S. economy added 209,000 jobs in July and the unemployment rate was 4.3 percent, according to a government report Friday.

Economists surveyed by Reuters had expected the report to show growth of 183,000 with the jobless rate ticking down to 4.3 percent, the lowest since March 2001. A more encompassing rate that includes discouraged workers and the underemployed was unchanged at 8.6 percent.
The number of employed Americans also hit a fresh new high at 153.5 million. The employment-to-population ratio also moved up to 60.2 percent, its highest level since February 2009.
Stock market futures liked the news, rising to indicate a positive open, while government bond yields also moved considerably higher.

The closely watched wage number was unchanged from previous months, with average hourly earnings up 2.5 percent. The average work week also was unchanged at 34.5 hours.


West Virginia’s Democratic Governor will flip to Republican Party as he announce at Trump rally

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice, a Democrat, will announce he is flipping to the GOP at a rally with President Trump on Thursday.
A senior Republican operative confirmed Justice’s plans to switch parties to The Hill.
Justice, a coal magnate and the wealthiest man in West Virginia, first won office last year. Before announcing his candidacy, he was wooed by both Democrats and Republicans. Ultimately, he opted to run as a Democrat.
Justice’s party switch is a slap in the face to the Democratic Governors Association, which spent more than $1 million to try to get Justice elected in 2016. The Republican Governors Association spent $3.7 million backing his GOP rival.
Trump took 68 percent of the vote in West Virginia in 2016, beating Hillary Clinton by 41 points. Justice, who faced the Republican state Senate president in November, won office with 49 percent of the vote.

Justice, the only billionaire in West Virginia, is the chief executive officer of dozens of companies, many in the coal industry. He also owns the Greenbrier, a luxury resort in the Allegheny Mountains that once served as a bunker meant to help the U.S. government survive a nuclear attack.

The New York Times first reported Justice’s decision to flip parties.
Trump seemed to tease the announcement earlier Thursday during an event spotlighting telehealth efforts by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

“We’re going to have a very big announcement, which will be very exciting I think for the media and everyone else,” Trump said. “I believe I’ll be making it in West Virginia, so that will be very exciting.”

Trump will fly to Huntington, W.Va., late Thursday for a rally at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena. It is his second visit to West Virginia in a little more than a week, following a speech to a Boy Scouts Jamboree.

That event took place at the James C. Justice National Scout Camp, a facility named for the governor.
