FILM FRIDAY!

We’re back this week to hone in on our upcoming holiday and seasonal activities, yes we’re talking about Thanksgiving. Let’s not forget, Black Friday which this year some stores are moving from Black Friday to Black Frimonth. They have discounts and sales all month but never-mind that. People are always so quick to celebrate something without understanding the history, fascinating. People will say they don’t believe or practice something but engage in yearly celebration. Let’s understand why and were not just Thanksgiving but Black Friday comes from.

(Lost but not forgotten) In the midst of the election Walter Wallace Jr was shot by the police in Philadelphia on October 26, 2020 because the police stated he was armed with a knife, touching off protests. Although it wasn’t confirmed they proceeded to attack and killed the young man on site. 

On October 20, 2020 Marcellis Stinnette, was killed and the mother of his child who is only 20 years old, Tafara Williams, was wounded and sent to the hospital to seek medical treatment. The police footage has been released but police are stating the officers actions were “justified”. The officer has been fired but still not update yet regarding the case. I will stay on this story and present more information as it is released. 

Change the Constitution! Change Policies! Change Laws! Change Officials! Change This Country!

I’m sure we’re all aware that former President Donald Trump is not planning on leaving the White House quietly. He is suing every state who’s elections vote count does not satisfy him. At this point I’m pretty sure things will only go further south. Former President Trump, his oil head side kick Rudy Giuliani (Face oil spill — It was hilarious! Truly. He never actually cleaned it) and his team of delusional bigot Republican followers are trying to cause as much mayhem as they possibly can before being removed from the White House.

Trump is trying to infect a whole naturally preserved area of Alaska, the Arctic and Atlantic by exposing them to oil drilling. There are several judges against these big companies and their ideas to pollute the waters and are but Trump is persistent and trying everything in his will to get this approved before he departs from the White House. Guess what, no matter what he do come January 20th he’s out! Fox 5 news , NBC, CBS, MSNBC, ABC and basically every other news station have declared President Elect Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. the winner. Oh, let’s not forget the MILLIONS of votes he accumulated fair and square from the states he won.

At this point the only thing Trump and his team are doing is embarrassing themselves. Trump recently spoke with Chris Wallace, Fox News Reporter and it was absolutely tragic! Trump was not at all prepared for this. Even former President Barak Obama did a 60minute interview to encourage Trump to concede peacefully. Pro-Trump Fox host, Stewart Varney, even defended Biden’s win, doubting Trump would make a comeback for this Presidency after the official vote count is released. Republicans are getting desperate and the reckless behavior continues.

Trump requested a recount in Wisconsin after losing AGAIN once the votes in Georgia were re-counted. Trump lawyers are still claiming fraud and continue to claim multiple ways to win over the election but nothing has yet materialize. You know what I think we all knew Trump wouldn’t be willing to leave the White House without a fight. Buckle up and get ready because he still has 61 days in this big house and he’s planning as many schemes as he can in his bunker. It seems Trump is refusing to even acknowledge Biden has won the Presidency and has no intention on attending the inauguration. No worries on January 20th we shall see a smooth transition I’m sure.
