I read the article. It basically that the Harriett Tubman $20 bill was always scheduled to come out at the end of the next decade because more time was needed for security features.

After Democrat lawmakers and commentators spent months hammering the Trump administration for supposedly delaying the release of a $20 bill featuring abolitionist Harriet Tubman, several officials appointed by President Barack Obama have reportedly admitted that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has followed the Obama timeline for producing the new currency.

“Those announcements were not grounded in reality," Felix said, referring to the Obama administration's promises to have the bill ready by 2020. "The U.S. had not at the time acquired the security features to redesign and protect the notes."

Seems to me all that proves is that Munchin was unfairly criticized when people said the delay was due to racism.

How does this make Obama look bad? Isn't the Obama administration responsible for the whole idea of putting Harriett Tubman on the $20 bill?  :shrug:

As an aside, it is always puzzling to me that y04185 is always trying to call out the Democrat posters on this board for not being critical of purported wrong doing by Democrats. However, has y04185 commented in any of the threads about Trump telling four women of color to go back from whence they came.  :shrug:

Tim needs to clean his ears out. What the hell was racist about Trumps tweet.  :shrug:

Yeah right Oldsport, telling people to go back to their own country is not racist at all.  ::)

Thank you Tim Scott.

[I am not going to waste my time. They're America haters - period and want to take this country down - FOOL.

You simply can't cite one example of anything that these women have said that justifies them being called America haters.

Again, why woould someone who hates America want to be a member of Congress. It doesn't make sense. All it is modern day McCarthyism.

Oldsport, can you cite any statements made by Reps. Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (Minn.) that would suggest they hate America.

Oldsport, please explain why you think Trump's comments were not racist.

Please cite to something any of these women said that would lead you to conclude that any of them hate America.

Are you seriously arguing that someone who hates America would want to be member of Congress. That doesn't pass the straight face test.

In may opinion, accusing members of Congress or anyone else who has legitimate criticism of the government of hating America is just cheap modern day McCarthyism.

Thank you Tim Scott.

Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), the only African-American Republican in the Senate, on Monday afternoon criticized President Trump for using "unacceptable" and racially offensive" language when he told four Democratic lawmakers of minority races to "go back" to the countries they came from.

Did Trump mention them by name? I think Trump did the right thing. Did he actually mean go back to a country or clean up their specific/represented districts? I like what Trump did.

Now you are being intellectually dishonest. Everybody knows he was talking about Reps. Ayanna Pressley (Mass.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (Minn.) –

In any event, the House of Representatives is going to vote on a resolution condemning Trump tweets decried as racist .

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Monday urged support for an upcoming resolution that would condemn tweets by President Trump in which he said that a group of minority, liberal congresswomen should “go back” to their home countries.

In a letter to Democratic colleagues, Pelosi said that Trump had gone “beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress” and that Democrats would “forcefully respond to these disgusting acts.”

Not a damn thing in Trumps tweet that was racist. These women hate America as it's constituted like you K----s.

You don't think telling those four women to go back to their country of origin is racist, especially when 3 of them were born in the United States.

Okay, you are entitled to your opinion but you have yet to explain why you don't think the comments weren't racist.

How is Trumps tweet racist - fool.

He told them to go back where they came from, that's racially and ethinically offensive on its face.

Please explain how it isn't racist?

Rep. Will Hurd, R-San Antonio, has been far less hesitant to criticize Trump, and on CNN on Monday, he forcefully rejected the latest controversial comments, calling them "racist and xenophobic."

You call people names because that is the best you've got. Morgan State must be so very proud of you.

Hey IDIOT. No President can bind the country to something like this without Senate approval. YOU GD IDIOT. Please Iran never signed the s**t. YOU GD FOOL.

You are misinformed. But go ahead and keep caling me names.  ::)  We know that's the best you have to offer.

In the spring of 2015, as President Obama and Iranian president Hassan Rouhani were putting the finishing touches on a wholly inadequate and disappointing nuclear deal, Congress had no way to stop it. President Obama planned to use the waiver authorities already provided to him in U.S. law to relieve sanctions in exchange for minimal curbs by Iran on its nuclear activities.

Thus, the president had no legal obligation to submit the deal to the Senate as a treaty or to both Houses as a congressional-executive agreement. Indeed, Obama made clear he didn’t plan to submit the deal to Congress, and told the Iranians as much. Only INARA, which passed with veto-proof majorities, forced him to come to Congress.

Iran didn't even sign it. Please this BS was never even ratified by the Senate. Who the F did Barry think he was signing America to this BS. Iran had no intention of honoring such a deal... and they f.'d the US in the a** ... got their money back and funded more terrorism.

Who the hell is Trump to pull out of the deal :shrug:

Serena Adlerstein didn't expect her Facebook status to turn into a nation-wide movement but somehow her words managed to mobilize thousands of young Jews to the streets, protesting the treatment of migrants in U.S. detention.

"I made an offhand Facebook post like, 'What if young Jews occupied ICE detention centers and shut them down?'" Adlerstein, 25, told NBC News.

People responded, and by that evening, on June 24, she was on the phone with other young Jews from around the country, planning an action, and hundreds of people had signed up on a Google Doc expressing interest in joining.

A  week later, on Sunday June 30, about 200 protesters under the banner of the newly formed Never Again Action protested outside a detention center in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Thirty-six people were arrested that day, and the demonstration sparked a burgeoning movement.

"My intent wasn't to start an organization or a long-term movement," Adlerstein said. But now that Never Again Action has spread across the country, she's leaning into it.

Since that initial protest, just two weeks ago, Never Again Action has organized more than 10 different protests around the country, in states from California to Rhode Island, and more are scheduled in the coming weeks.


Too late.  It's blood money. They should reject the donation.  Chuck needs to practice what he preaches and resign.

Come on y04185. You are just grasping at straws. Epstein donated that money to Schumer over 20 years ago:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., who had received about $22,000 from Epstein through his House and Senate campaigns and other affiliated joint fundraising committees between 1992 and 1999, announced that his campaign will be donating the same amount he received from Epstein to "anti-sex trafficking and anti-violence against women groups." Schumer also gave away his past donations from Harvey Weinstein

Is there any evidence that Schumer knew Epstein was taking advantage of underage girls when he accepted the donations?

Did Schumer play any part in the failure of the Palm Beach Florida State Attorney or then U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida Alex Acosta to properly prosecute Epstein.

You can bet those organizations that recieve that money won't be returning it to Schumer.

Schumer to donate Epstein campaign contributions to groups fighting sexual violence

Senate Minority Chief (D-N.Y.) stated Wednesday he will donate an sum of money that is equal to the contributions accused sexual intercourse trafficker Jeffrey Epstein developed to his promoting campaign in the 1990s.

“While these marketing campaign accounts closed about 20 decades ago, and even then the campaign by no means managed the two political action committees (PACs), Sen. Schumer is donating an equal sum to anti-intercourse trafficking and anti-violence versus gals teams,” Schumer spokesperson Justin Goodman stated in a statement to The Hill

The donations will go to Safe and sound Horizon, Sanctuary For Relatives members, Crime Victims Treatment Centre and John Jay University Basis
