I think the majority of people who consider themselves to be on the right, independent and conservative and even some left leaning individuals are aware that many things in the “news” are simply distractions. They are being ginned up to distract us by last minute things that are being done and put in place before the Trump administration takes over in Washington. Before the Obama admiistration loses its stranglehold on the American people.
A few examples are
- The mass number of pardons being signed and clemencies
- Blocking Altantic and Artic oil drilling
- John Bolton is concerned about something being done against Israel
- Congress is pushing back against a last minute coal mining regulation
- List of executive actions ready to go – not surprised are you?
But maybe this is one of the worst, of course, with Obama, how do you gauge – worst? Here are some excerpts from the Daily Caller article. I’ll provide links to several articles below –
Media Blackout On Obama’s Last-Minute Civil Rights Appointments
Liberal news outlets like The New York Times, The Washington Post and CNN are keeping their readers in the dark about two aggressive appointments to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights made by President Obama with just weeks remaining in his presidency.
In addition to questions surrounding the appointees themselves, the move by Obama effectively blocks President-elect Donald Trump from any appointments to the eight-person commission until 2020, when Trump would be up for re-election.
One of the appointees is Debo Adegbile, who was previously nominated to the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division but was blocked by a bipartisan group of senators due to his defense of former Black Panther and convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. Unlike that nomination, Adegbile’s appointment — which pro-police groups have described as a “slap in the face” — does not require congressional approval.
The other appointee is Catherine Lhamon, the assistant secretary for civil rights at the Department of Education, who spearheaded the Obama administration’s transgender mandate currently the subject of litigation. Lhamon has close ties to left-wing activists and played a key role in the infamous Rolling Stone rape hoax.
The two appointments will each last for six years.
Liberal media organizations like the Washington Post, New York Times and CNN have nevertheless kept their readers in the dark.
