The Obvious Liberal Ploy to DIVIDE us…We’re Far Too Smart For That
Liberals don’t want to improve race relations; their goal is to divide and sow continued violence.
Jeff Bezos’ Amazon is set to unveil a new series called “Cracka,” which envisions an America in which white people were enslaved by black people.
Director Dale Resteghini released the trailer for the series on Friday, saying it would be available for purchase on Amazon Prime and elsewhere later in 2020. The trailer shows a white man with Nazi tattoos being transported to an alternate universe in which he is made a slave by black people.
The title cards read: “You took our breath away, what if we took yours? You raped our daughters, what if we raped yours? You stole our freedom, now we steal yours.”
In the series, the white neo-Nazi “protagonist” confronts some black people is a car, but is somehow swept away to another world. When he awakes, the tables are turned, and he is brutalized by black slaveholders. White women are seen being raped by black “slaveowners,” and white men are seen being lynched by their black overlords.
Rev. Franklin Graham minced no words when speaking about the prospects of a Democratic-controlled Washington, D.C., should the Democratic Party prevail in November.
“I think this election is the most important election in my lifetime,” the 67-year-old evangelist told The Western Journal in an interview on Tuesday.
“[The Democratic Party] is a socialist party, and it’s a party of mayhem and confusion, and I think if we go back to Democratic leadership at this time, it would be maybe the end of the country as we know it today,” he added.
Graham believes President Donald Trump has been an outstanding leader and deserves a second term.
“I’m just grateful that we’ve had the president for four years, I pray, if it be God’s will, that God would give him another four years,” he said.
With nearly 200 judges appointed to the federal bench to date since Trump’s inauguration, Graham sees the president’s judicial appointments as perhaps the former New York businessman’s greatest legacy.
Another four years in office “could help shape the direction of the country for the next 20 to 30 years, if he’s able to continue, just with the appointment of judges, and that’s what’s so critical,” he said.
Graham also marveled how quickly the president was able to get the economy roaring, achieving record-low unemployment numbers within the first year and a half of taking office.
Additionally, he highlighted the speed in which the commander-in-chief oversaw the destruction of the Islamic State group’s so-called caliphate after the Obama administration allowed it to grow into a large territory over a multiple-year period.
Leading Market News
Stocks could face turbulence and limited gains in the second half of the year, as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to set the course for markets and the economy.
The S&P 500 had been up more than 20% for the second quarter before Wednesday’s 2.6% decline, as a surge in virus cases in Florida, Texas and other sunbelt states raised fears that the economic rebound could be slowed.
The first half of the year saw stocks rise to new highs amid optimism after the phase one China trade deal, but then plummet in March, as the virus shut down the economy. But a heavy and rapid dose of fiscal and Fed stimulus pulled markets out of a downward spiral, and the Nasdaq led the pack, as the first index to set new highs.
“People who are looking for a magical V [recovery] are delusional,” said Julian Emanuel, head of equities and derivatives strategy at BTIG. “The delusional part is when you look at the Nasdaq, it made a new all time high. That’s buoying the public’s optimism and pulled institutions off the sidelines.”
Investors jumped into defensive, stay at home stocks, like Netflix, Facebook, Amazon and consumer staples, when the economy was first shut down. But as they became optimistic about the economy recovering, they moved into the beaten down names, like airlines or casinos, and cyclicals like financials and energy to bet on the rebound.
Emanuel said the fact that institutions have put more money into stocks recently means they are no longer underinvested and compelled to buy. “That’s different than what we saw in May and the first several weeks in June,” when they had to chase performance, he said.
“We are now no longer in a mindset where good news is likely to be interpreted as good news and bad news is likely to be shrugged off,” said Emanuel. “Bad news will be bad news.”
Emanuel expects the S&P to end the year at 3,000, and the market should start setting new highs next year.

Germany’s top court ruled against social media giant Facebook in an antitrust case related to the company’s collection of user data.
The court affirmed the findings of Germany’s antitrust watchdog, which ruled that Facebook abused its market dominance to harvest data from users across multiple platforms.
The New York Times reports that in a move that is likely to see Facebook put under further scrutiny by European governments, Germany’s top court has ruled that Facebook abused its dominance in social media to illegally harvest data about its users.
The ruling by the Federal Court of Justice upholds a decision by Germany’s antitrust watchdog and is seen as a victory for proponents of the regulation of Silicon Valley giants.
The court ruled that Facebook broke competition laws by combining data that it collected about users across different platforms including WhatsApp and Instagram as well as other websites and third-party apps.
