“Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the worst in the USA.” - President Donald Trump regarding Baltimore's 7th district
For almost 26 years...he's in his13th term in office...he's represented a large area of predominately black Baltimore...he being Rep. Elijah Cummings...and his district is considered to be both one of the worst run and one of the most dangerous anywhere in these United States. And for almost 26 years this area has remained as it always was...a welfare driven slum engulfed in both hopelessness and shame...a district where rats outnumber people and where the homeless, needles, feces, and the stench of despair are but the norm. “A disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess,” said President Trump with some of Baltimore's former mayors sadly having to agree.
In fact, late last September disgraced, forced to resign over a corruption scandal concerning sales of her children’s books, former Mayor Catherine Pugh along with some key city leaders were video taped while touring a rundown Baltimore neighborhood and you can hear her saying, “What the hell? We should just take all this [expletive] down,” and then adding, “Whoa, you can smell the rats...Whew, Jesus...Oh, my God, you can smell the dead animals.”
See video 'Baltimore Mayor Caught Saying You Can...' here: https://thepatriotfactor.blogspot.com/2019/08/op-ed-since-when-did-rats-become-race.html
And that same smell and that same decay remains to this day for Cummings' district is actually in worse shape now than it was when he first took office. In fact, nothing has changed in Baltimore as a whole even though large sums of money had been thrown Baltimore's way...including a whopping $1.8 billion by Barack HUSSEIN Obama under his “American Recovery and Investment Act”...$1.8 billion derived from his 2009 stimulus, which including $26.5 million to address crime prevention, $26 million to revamp abandoned properties, and $9.5 million to address homelessness.
But those monies were squandered away to keep the “fat cat” politicians happy while the residents continued to wallow in self pity with their hands out...slums are big business you know with their constituents being nothing but bought and paid for “chump change”... “chump change” that continues to vote the “head rat” in.
And speaking of another “head rat”...now entering center stage is the anything but Reverend Al Sharpton who has been if not a friend of President Trump at least a close acquaintance of President Trump, and has been for over 30 years. And isn't it odd that in all those years he has never once called Trump a racist or even alluded to Trump being a racist for racial pot stirrer Al Sharpton knows well that President Trump is not now nor has ever been a racist. But dare our president criticize and call a black Democrat politician to task over a job promised but not done, Trump in Sharpton's eyes has now suddenly morphed into being a racist.
But why in truth has Trump been deemed a racist by Sharpton and his ilk...simply because the vast majority of those living in West Baltimore are black Democrats, their congressman is a black Democrat, their mayor is a black Democrat, and too many black Democrats egged on by their white liberal supporters relish in using their black skin color as the sole means of defining who they are...thus having proven once again that for some one's skin color trumps logic, common sense, and reality...proving once again that racism is truly a double edged sword especially when it helps Democrats to garner votes.
How Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. must be turning over in his grave.
See video 'Trump is right about West Baltimore being...' here: https://thepatriotfactor.blogspot.com/2019/08/op-ed-since-when-did-rats-become-race.html
But the truth is that President Trump is right...Elijah Cummings' district is not only “rat and rodent infested,” but it is truly what amounts to a garbage dump in every literal sense of those words. But the key question that no one in either party wants to address...and probably out of fear of their being labeled a racist...is why aren't the residents themselves getting out there and at least helping to clean up their own mess...and know it is a mess of their own doing. And their skin color has not a damn thing to do with it as filth, dirt, and slovenliness do indeed cross all color lines. Such self-help, clean-up initiatives have been taken in other cities, in other neighborhoods, and to great success, but not in Baltimore... again why?
The answer to that question can be seen in Baltimore's two-faces. Face one sadly sees past Baltimore mayors relishing in having sued the Trump administration in a case over funding for sex education...which is a total waste of federal monies if you ask me...paid for lawyers to aid those caught in (gasp) ICE roundups of "illegals," and finalized a civil rights decree over (alleged) abuses by Baltimore police that the DOJ supposedly wanted to look away to. Face two on the other hand sees Baltimore wanting to garner benefits for the city from the “Opportunity Zone” tax breaks...tax breaks designed to spur economic development by providing tax benefits to investors...tax breaks backed by the Trump administration.
But the thing is, what savvy investor wants to invest their monies in a city that continues on a downward spiral; a city whose slum areas sadly seem to define the city itself; a city now ranked number one as our country's most dangerous and crime ridden city; and a city whose residents as well as its political leaders wanting to take no responsibility for what basically is Baltimore's economic and social collapse. It's one thing for an investor to move in, demolish, and gut entire neighborhoods, but that only leaves said neighborhoods residents to move to other neighborhoods while taking along both their ghetto mentality of “who cares...you owe me,” plus their dragging their acquired filth and habits along with them. And no “Visit Baltimore” advertising campaign will change that...painting lipstick on a pig never works as so many recent events have shown to be true.
"The fact of that matter is that America is the wealthiest nation in the history of the world. But anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you're in a wealthy nation. You would think that you were in a Third World country." So said Democrat-Socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders back in 2015 after touring Baltimore's 7th district.
And even though last week Baltimore's new Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young called for, begged for, President Trump to help his city, there are ways to truly ask for help and ways to make a bad situation even worse, which is exactly what Mayor Young did. Saying, “If you want to help us, help us. Don’t talk about it. Send the resources that we need to rebuild America. He’s talking about he wants to ‘Make America Great Again’? Put the money in the cities that need it the most,” these words and the tone in which they were said sound more like fighting words than they do an honest cry for help, and anyway sometimes cities need to help themselves after squandering away what was billions of dollars in aid.
And these very politicians...Democrats all...need to stop pointing a finger at Trump for he is echoing what their very own Barack HUSSEIN Obama said back in 2015.
“Our great African American President hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore!” So said Donald J. Trump on April 28, 2015 after Obama went on television to speak about the then recent Baltimore riots and Baltimore's inner city communities...communities he said are “struggling with abject poverty, no investment, and drugs.” Blaming the riots on the lack of opportunity, high rates of crime, substandard education, and drug abuse, Obama stated that “if you have impoverished communities that have been stripped away of opportunities, where children are born into abject poverty, they’ve got parents — often because of substance abuse problems, or incarceration, or lack of education themselves — can’t do right by their kids.”
And Obama's saying then what Trump is essentially saying now translates into the fact that nothing has changed to in Baltimore no matter all the promises of help the likes of Elijah Cummings and others have made. Nothing has changed except for the fact that Baltimore had an unemployment rate of seven percent when Obama left office in January 2017, and that it has dropped nearly two percent since Trump took office, and was 5.1 percent as of May 2019...just saying.
But Baltimore's leaders sure knew how to squander away the $1.8 billion in aid Obama sent Baltimore via useless programs that basically went nowhere, which means in no uncertain terms that President Trump inherited this mess courtesy of Obama with the uselessness of Elijah Cummings thrown in for good or should I say bad measure. The man who has gotten rich off the misery of his constituents has had decades to try and remedy the situation...he even had a supposed black president on his side...and yet he has done nothing at all to help those he represents, but still gets elected in a predominately black district by predominately black voters. And last time I checked rats and rodents are not racially classified nor do they vote...or do they.
And even if one let's the past be the past...as in let sleeping dogs lie...tell me what has Elijah Cummings done of late to help those in his district? Let's see, he introduced the bill to replace Thomas Jefferson and put Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar bill...he introduced legislation to eradicate lead poisoning in Opportunity Zones alone...he recently announced a $125 million federal investment in the Howard Street Tunnel...but please tell me how any of that helps the his Congressional district or those living in it. None of it does and yet he's seen by some of those suffering to be a savior...just because he's black like they are.
Seen by some but thankfully not by all.
See video 'Rat photobombs Baltimore news report...' here: https://thepatriotfactor.blogspot.com/2019/08/op-ed-since-when-did-rats-become-race.html
Recently, Chief Content Creator, Benny Johnson of “Turning Point USA,” took a crew and visited Cummings' 7th district...a district he described as a “foreign war zone,” with trash everywhere and with filth and garbage piled up high along streets of decrepit “crumbling to pieces homes.” Saying that “every person I spoke with confirmed that the district was rat infested,” Johnson also went on to say that folks told him that a “plague of rats” the “size of cats” have “taken over” the neighborhood. He also spoke about a resident showing him a flyer from the city of Baltimore asking residents to pick up trash to keep rats away. Trying to help...maybe...but the timing of the flyer is quite suspicious as it came out right “after” Trump's tweet about the rats and rodent infestation.
The infestation cover-up or at least the deflection game has begun.
Also as per Benny Johnson, “constituents” told him that murders, shootings, and drugs run rampant, and that many were scared and do not go outside after dark...and that's in addition to their feeling abandoned by their politicians.
And yet these same folks...folks who truly seem to want help...will continue to vote these same politicians in time and time again simply because their shared skin color guides them towards which party's lever to pull. And the Democrats who were outraged over Trump's remarks... even though they’re totally true...will continue blathering on while making promises to folks to needy to understand that they simply are being used.
“What he said was definitely true. [Cummings] hasn’t done anything for us....If he would take the time out to come over here and see how things are maybe he’d be better at his job.” So said 7th district resident 'Michelle' to Baltimore County Republican Central Committee member Kimberly Klacik.
So until the reality of who the “bad guys” really are sets in, Baltimore's 7th district will continue to wallow in filth, crime, and hopelessness while Elijah Cummings spews lie after lie about the supposedly horrific job being done by our Border Patrol and about terrible conditions at our southern border detention centers...none of which is true. And Cummings will continue to do so as his constituents sink deeper into poverty while he basks in his $175+ thousand dollar a year salary with a Cheshire Cat grin on his face as the rats and rodents scurry on by him and head towards their 7th district home.
