(Via Buzzfeed) Hillary Clinton has begun to court leaders in the Black Lives Matter movement — starting at the movement’s biggest gathering ever.
Over the weekend, Clinton’s black outreach director, LaDavia Drane, attended the Movement for Black Lives convention in Cleveland. That visit marked the campaign’s first outreach to the movement, which has seen even wider press coverage in the past week after activists disrupted a presidential forum at Netroots Nation.
That protest has been fresh in the minds of presidential campaigns and many of the at least 1,300 attendees — according to organizers — at the weekend’s convention.
A Clinton campaign official on Saturday confirmed to BuzzFeed News that Drane “had one-on-one meetings and group listening sessions to engage stakeholders including ministers, community organizers, elected officials, and other individuals in Cleveland for the Movement for Black Lives.” An Ohio native, Drane engaged people inside the movement and listened to a range of suggestions related to Clinton’s outreach, as well as policy recommendations, the official said.
“We will continue to engage a wide array of stakeholders, including members of the black lives matter movement, when crafting policy on important issues like reforming our criminal justice system,” the official said. (read more)
The Left has reached bottom, it is truly sad
Rock on Colin!
I guess the media was too busy pushing the lie that the Lafayette murderer got his gun legally to report that a CHL holder in Ohio stopped a mass shooting today
A 62-year-old Cincinnati man is in jail after pulling two guns and opening fire on four people, including an infant:
A 62-year-old man with a gun in each hand fired at four people – including a 1-year-old boy – before a civilian with a concealed carry permit returned fire and wounded the shooter, cops told FOX19.
Thomas McCary is being held without bond on four counts of felonious assault.
McCary was arguing with a woman around 8 p.m. Sunday night and, when the woman’s brother, Patrick Ewing, approached, McCary pulled out a .38-caliber handgun and fired three shots at him, Cincinnati police said.
Ewing didn’t get hit, but he did get his own gun and returned fire, wounding McCary in the leg. Ewing had a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
Ewing provided cover fire allowing the other man, his sister and the baby to retreat as McCary fired at them again. McCary is presently in Hamilton County jail awaiting charges. He will likely face four counts of assault with a deadly weapon
God bless this hero, seems like a story CNN, NBC, etc. would cover, but, no………….. Of course if that CHL holder had not been there, this would be getting LOTS of coverage I would bet.
I am, it is fair to say, NOT a fan of Mike Huckabee. But let me be the first to say that Huck would be a better leader for America than Obama 1000 times over. So allow me an opportunity to comment on this
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — Insisting that Americans deserve better, President Barack Obama chided Republicans Mike Huckabee, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz on Monday for a series of campaign-trail attacks that he said would be “ridiculous if it weren’t so sad.”
In some of his first commentary on the budding race to replace him, Obama accused the candidates of violating a time-honored American tradition of not playing “fast and loose” on topics of grave concern like foreign policy. And he said that regardless of which party wins the White House, he wants to ensure he’s turning over the keys to someone capable of seriousness and honesty.
“We have robust debates, we look at the facts,” Obama said during a news conference in Ethiopia. “We just don’t fling out ad hominem attacks like that because it doesn’t help inform the American people.”
Obama has largely avoided wading into the increasingly turbulent debate over who should be the next president. But during a news conference with Ethiopia’s prime minister, Obama was asked about criticism from Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, and seemed eager to add his take.
A day earlier, Huckabee said Obama was so naive about Iran that he agreed to a nuclear deal that would “take the Israelis and basically march them to the door of the oven,” a reference to crematoria in Nazi concentration camps during the Holocaust.
“It’s not the kind of leadership that’s needed for America right now,” he said.
