Since the birth of the nation presidents have used their constitutionally-granted power to issue pardons to Americans convicted of federal crimes. George Washington began the long list of presidential pardons when he granted two citizens convicted of treason in the Whiskey Rebellion, largely played out here in the commonwealth; in Western Pennsylvania.

It looks like we are in for a long hot summer in America. I am one who does not like extremely hot humid weather. It is even more painful when the prospects of ignorant, indoctrinated Soros paid gumps may seek to riot in American streets this summer. The reason for such plans are always the same tired excuses given by bitter useful idiots who don’t know anything and got that mixed up when it comes to justice, freedom, liberty and reparations. To this day, many black Americans who stupidly call themselves African Americans do not even understand how reparations are designed to be carried out.
Just recently in Seattle, white patrons at a certain bar were required to pay for the drinks of black female patrons. The reason given “it was a form of reparations for slavery.” That makes about as much sense as white shoppers being forced to buy groceries for black grocery store patrons as a form of reparations. It is stupid and victimizes people who had nothing to do with slavery and gives a false sense of gotcha to those receiving reparation drinks or whatever.
Black Americans would be better served by the example of other people groups who have dealt with cruel and unfair treatment. After the Empire of Japan bombed Pearl Harbor during World War Two, it was not long before Japanese residents in the United States suffered a major ordeal. They were rounded up and systematically tossed into concentration camps. The reason given is were at war and the Japanese might carry out war activities within the continental United States. After all, it was the Japanese who fooled America into thinking they wanted to be our friend by signing a peace agreement with our republic. They had even given beautiful Flowering trees to cities like Washington D.C. and Cleveland which annually bloom every spring.
The Japanese residents in America suffered in concentration camps and had faced racist treatment prior to the Peal Harbor attacks. But they took it in stride and like the Chinese who also immigrated to the United States received shabby treatment. But rather steep themselves of a caldron of bitterness, the Japanese and Chinese immigrants patiently learned how to succeed economically. They supported businesses in their respective communities and gradually became highly successful, despite whatever white Americans thought of them at the time.
In addition, although the Japanese could have been very bitter, but to the immeasurable embarrassment and chagrin of those who tossed Japanese into concentration camps, they enthusiastically mobilized their sons and sent them into the American armed forces to volunteer their services. The Japanese regiments were among the more highly decorated in World War II. Although they went into the military ranks under suspicion and resentment, they came out as heralded heroes.
But of all the ethnic groups in America it seems that Black Americans have had the most difficulty securing their place as assimilated. Many early political leaders including Abraham Lincoln expressed concerned over the ability of Blacks to adjust because of the slavery culture in which the first few generations were raised. Despite apprehensions, freedom and education brought tremendous hope and optimism to Black Americans within three generations. After three generations, many blacks were overcoming the culture gap. In time Blacks in every other nation on earth saw their ethnic counterparts in America experiencing a higher standard of living than Blacks in any other part of the world. In fact, by 1970 a black high school student in Alabama or Mississippi had a higher chance at obtaining a collegiate education than a white student in Great Britain.
Great Americans like Frederick Douglas, Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver all believed that hard work, an education and faith in God would ensure a pathway to success and blaze a trail for following generations to follow. Still others like W. E.B. Dubois and white democrats fought to instill a level of bitterness and hatred for America in Blacks and conned them into expecting government gratuities as a main source of revenue. Experience has proven that such a mindset has corrupted and debilitated Black Americans socially, economically and most horribly in family life where females now run over 70 percent of all Black American households.
Many tend to uphold the Black female as morally superior to the Black man. Yet they fail to answer the question that if Black females are morally superior, why is it they continue to raise the most damaged generations of Black boys in the history of the republic? After all it is they who have complete access to their boys without any input from men, because of their aversion to Black male authority. Remember, they preferred government handouts over a working Black father in the home. Until the 1970s, the majority of Black American households were headed by Black American men who either had one or two jobs.
In the mid-sixties there were groups of Marxist agitators who promoted violence an attitude of entitlement among Black Americans. One of the most famous was Eldridge Cleaver, who had been trained in Marxist philosophy and evil tactics while serving a fifteen year sentence in a California prison. In 1967 he became Minister of Information for the Black Panthers. Their goal was to use violence to wipe out the economic and social structure of the United States and roll out communism so that everyone would be equal, but equally poor. Just like today’s Black Lives Matter movement, it wasn’t about working to improve the quality of life for anyone. But to destroy the prospects of a good life for everyone, except the elites at the top of course.
After leading a wave of violence in 1968, Eldridge Cleaver and his wife fled the United State and hid out in Cuba for eight years. A funny thing happened. While in Cuba he witnessed the horrendous failure of communism as a means to improve life for the common man. Mr. Cleaver concluded that it would be better to come back to America and pay for his crimes in prison than to remain free and morbidly disappointed in Cuba. Black Americans today would be much better off if they researched the Eldridge Cleaver story for themselves and came to the logical conclusion that while it may not be perfect in America, it is the best hope for mankind after God almighty. Here’s hoping and praying, that they awaken from their democrat party influenced nightmare and seek to live rather than just exist as Soros, Alynski inspired cretins. I know it might seem impossible, but miracles do happen.
