Civil rights movements are a worldwide series of political movements for equality before the law

President Donald Trump made an unannounced trip to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington on Monday. Around midmorning Monday, Trump tweeted a link to a proclamation he signed last week declaring Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

«Today we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God,» the president tweeted.

 

Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated in 1968, but it took 15 years to create the federal Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. Congress passed the holiday legislation in 1983, which was then signed into law by President Ronald Reagan.

A compromise moving the holiday from Jan. 15, Kings birthday, which was considered too close to Christmas and new years, to the third Monday in January helped overcome opposition to the law.

In 2000, Utah became the last state to recognize MLK Day by name, renaming its Human Rights Day state holiday. King was the chief spokesperson for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law.

While many states now observe the holiday, some did not name the day after King. For example, in New Hampshire, the holiday was known as «Civil Rights Day» until 1999, when the State Legislature voted to change the name of the holiday to Martin Luther King Day.

A lot of people around the world share Kings idea of «dreams», but some people on this planet think they could kill the dream by slaying the dreamer, but as the example of Martin Luther Kings life shows; People like that are always wrong.

The civil rights movement was a decades-long movement with the goal of enforcing constitutional and legal rights for African-Americans that other Americans already enjoyed. Various groups and organized social movements accomplish the goals of ending legalized racial segregation, disenfranchisement and discrimination in the United States.

People around the world have been marching on the MLK Day every year the last 50 years, and now we can see similar movements are happening in France. Some of the Yellow Vest protesters in France are Anti-fascists and Anti-racists. You have to be blind to not see that France have the same challenge even today, fifty years later.

Mike Pence quoted King on Sunday during an interview with CBS. «One of my favorite quotes from Dr King was, «Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy,» Pence said. «You think of how he changed America, he inspired us to change through the legislative process.»

Civil rights movements are a worldwide series of political movements for equality before the law, that peaked in the 1960`s. The main aim of the successful civil rights movement and other social movements for civil rights included ensuring that the rights of all people where and are equally protected by the law.

The economy has created nearly 2 million jobs since the President’s inauguration and 90% of media`s coverage is negative

Let`s face it; Fake news is a big problem. Not only for Mainstream Media and their journalists, but to the democracy and political pluralism. President Donald Trump know it is a big problem and he have done something with it.

He is not only Making America Great Again, but also the rest of the world. Mainstream Media is still full of lies and fake news, but many of them are much better today than only a year ago when Mr Trump was inaugurated.

 

 

2017 was a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage, and even downright fake news. Studies have shown that over 90% of the media`s coverage of President Trump is negative. This is strange because 2017 have been one of the best years ever.

You are probably one of them who dont like or belive in President Trump. Thats probably because you follow mainstream Media. Why? Because they spent 90% of the time focusing on negative coverage or fake news.

But did you know that Mr Trump has been getting results? Take a closer look at the list below:

 

  1. The economy has created nearly 2 million jobs and gained over $8 trillion in wealth since the President`s inaguration.
  2. African-Americans and Hispanics are enjoying the lowest unemployment rate in recorded history.
  3. The President signed historic tax cuts and relief for hardworking Americans not seen since President Reagan.
  4. President Trump`s plan to cut regulations has exceeded “2 out of for every 1 in” in mandate, issuing 22 deregulatory actions for every one new regulatory action.
  5. The President has unleashed an American energy boom by ending Obama-era regulations, approving the Keystone pipeline, auctioning off millions of new acres for energy exploration, and opening up ANWR.
  6. ISIS is in retreat, having been crushed in Iraq and Syria.
  7. President Trump followed through on his promise to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel and instructed the State Department to relocate Embassy.
  8. With President Trump`s encouragement, more member nations are paying their fair share for the common defense in NATO alliance.
  9. Signed the Veterans Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act to allow senior officials in the VA to fire failing employees and establishes safeguards to protect whistleblowers.
  10. President Trump kept his promise and appointed Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch to the U.S Supreme Court.

 

 

President Trump continues the war on Mainstream Media. He has a collection of Fake News, and started a Fake News Award, and below are the winners of the 2017 Fake News Awards.

  1. The New York Times` Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump`s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover. Dow hits record high.
  2. ABC News` Bryan Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.
  3. CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.
  4. TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.
  5. Washington Post FALSELY reported the President`s massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.
  6. CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.
  7. CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci`s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”
  8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump`s hand. A big lie. She did, and there is a picture from that moment.
  9. CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump`s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.
  10. The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.
  11. And last, but not least; “RUSSIA COLLUSION!” Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people.

    THERE IS NO COLLUSION!
