Freedom First International Responds to President Trump's Threat to Defund Democratic Cities.
Attribution: The Guardian

              Introduction

The Trump Administration is looking to cut off billions of dollars in federal funds from U.S. Cities with Democratic Leaders. A five page memo signed by Trump last Wednesday calls for federal funding to be cease in NYC and three other cities where Trump claims there is a presence of “Anarchist Jurisdiction.”

In an effort to build his re-election campaign, he is pushing his agenda amid the uprising of continuous racial injustice protests that has resulted from law enforcement’s involvement in assaults and brutal killings of unarmed black people across the nation.                       

Official Press Statement

We at Freedom First International believe Instead of encouraging unity, and enforcing judicial equality, within law enforcement, The Trump administration continues to add fuel to the fire, by defending the actions of members of supremacy groups. A recent example is the case of Kyle Rittenhouse, a seventeen year old, who was visually armed and had fatally shot two people, during a protest of a shooting of yet another unarmed black man Jacob Blake in Kenosha Wisconsin.

We most “strongly” oppose any action that justifies the murder of any human being and strongly urge that President Trump is incorrect to condone Kyle Rittenhouse’s actions, as Trump recently sent a twitter text which seeks to justify the shooting as self defense. 

  Freedom First International Summary 

Freedom First International realizes that the withholding of any federal funding including any relief funds by elected government officials is unethical, and perhaps used only to gain votes and financial control over the people.

We are concerned that the ongoing battle to gain political control has abandoned the needs and safety of all people, with members of both parties seemingly at each other’s throats-and the livelihood of millions of citizens are at stake.

We are calling for judicial justice, diversity, and equality from our local governments, community leaders, law enforcement, and elected officials, to ensure a better quality of life for everyone.

While we are “sick and tired of being sick and tired”– we will work upto the point of exhaustion until we see and feel visible change. (FFI)

FREEDOM FIRST INTERNATIONAL RESPONDS IN DISAGREEMENT WITH DONALD TRUMP THREATENING TO PULL FUNDING FROM EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS THAT TEACH THE 1619 PROJECT

FREEDOM FIRST INTERNATIONAL RESPONDS IN DISAGREEMENT WITH DONALD TRUMP THREATENING TO PULL FUNDING FROM EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS THAT TEACH THE 1619 PROJECT
Attribution: NY TIMES

Introduction

Freedom First International stands behind, and completely supports the state of California’s decision to incorporate the New York Time’s 1619 project into their U.S. History public school curriculum. At Freedom First International, we believe that slavery is so ingrained in U.S. History,starting with the first slaves being brought over to what would later become the United States in the year 1619.

Official Press Statement-We at Freedom First International strongly urge that President Donald Trump believes that this curriculum is “rewriting” history and is a part in a wider “cultural revolution”. We would like to point out that this curriculum is a Pulitzer Prize winning curriculum, and the facts included in it are undeniable. Slavery is an integral part of U.S. History, and that needs to be clearly taught to our students, both white and people of color, in order to begin the healing process.In modern day Germany, students in higher grade levels are taught about the horrors of Nazi
Germany, Hitler, and his associates. This is an ironclad plank in their national curriculum. It was instituted so that Germany would never again repeat the atrocities of the past.We believe it is time for the American people to reckon with their past, and accept it for what it was. This can begin with this curriculum being an integral part of California’s U.S. History curriculum, and hopefully will be adopted around the entire United States.

Freedom First International Responds to the Kyle Rittenhouse Shooting Asking For A Swift Prosecution, asking President Trump and Political Officials To Stay Out of the Way of Justice

Media Briefing For Immediate Release Monday September 7, 2020 at  4 pm

KENOSHA, WISCONSIN, USA – AUGUST 25: A man (R) was shot in the chest as clashes between protesters and armed civilians who protect the streets of Kenosha against the arson during the third day of protests over the shooting of a black man Jacob Blake by police officer in Wisconsin, United States on August 25, 2020. (Photo by Tayfun Coskun/Anadolu Agency via etty Images)

Introduction

Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old self-described militia member from Illinois, has been charged with homicide. He faces a first-degree intentional homicide charge and five other charges in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Under Wisconsin law, Rittenhouse is charged as an adult, and he would face life in prison if convicted. It’s now believed that he shot and killed two people and wounded a third during two separate shooting incidents that unfolded within a few minutes of each other during protest after the shooting of Jacob Blake.

“He was trying to get away from them, I guess … and he fell,” Trump claimed, citing videos of the Rittenhouse attack. “And then they very violently attacked him.” The president claimed that the teenager, who was carrying an assault-style rifle, “probably would’ve been killed.” “He was in very big trouble. He probably would’ve been killed, but it’s under investigation,” Trump said.

Official Press Statement

From Sixteen shots and a cover up to a knee on the neck that end a life with one poor soul pleading” I can’t breathe” to seven shots in the back to an home invasion that becomes state stationed murder. 

Our Question is when it is enough that innocent lives will be taken before we finally take a serious approach to gun sense in America. Today’s nonsensical approach to the gun violence we must continue to look for outside the box thinking, we must look for ideas like IL House Bill HB1586 which includes serialization of ammunition to trace bullets.

Justice must be brought forth with swift, fast certain transparency

Dr. Matt Harrington,  Anti Gun Violence Coordinator- Freedom First International.

Freedom First International Summary

With this Tragic event-The President of our County has once again deviated from certain and correct leadership when given the opportunity to rebuke violence. So Instead of promoting, “Peace and Resolution he (President Trump) and others have made a decision to make this a partisan political issue. This young man took the lives of two other human beings and attempted to take a third. As a necessity we at Freedom First International believe Rittenhouse should be charged as an adult and found guilty in a U.S. Court of law — In the days ahead we plan to make this a actionable issue.

For Immediate Release: Call for All Americans to Block President Donald Trumps State of the Union Show

Freedom First Internal is calling for a viewer ban of President Donald J. Trumps “State of the Union address” on this Tuesday night. In the past President Trump has boasted that the viewership of his State of the Union speech was “the highest number in history” — many times those claims are odds with ratings figures released the day after.

For example, one year to date- Trump thanked supporters “for all the nice compliments and reviews” of his address and said 45.6 million people had watched.

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

Thank you for all of the nice compliments and reviews on the State of the Union speech. 45.6 million people watched, the highest number in history. @FoxNews beat every other Network, for the first time ever, with 11.7 million people tuning in. Delivered from the heart!

In reality, the audience was smaller than the 48 million who watched Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress last year and smaller than several speeches delivered by recent predecessors. Barack Obama’s joint session speech in 2009 drew 52 million viewers; George W. Bush’s State of the Union address in 2003 drew 62 million viewers, and Bill Clinton’s joint session speech in 1993 drew 67 million viewers. 

A White House official, who was not authorized to speak for the president and spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that Trump intended to say that the cable ratings for his speech were the highest ever. In addition to the broadcast networks, the speech was carried on several cable networks, including Fox News, MSNBC and CNN, as well as the Spanish-language channels Univision and Telemundo.

We understand that the Trump administration uses the viewership of the state of the Union as noted in his tweet that Fox News to suggest favorability with his agenda. 

Mr. Trump’s approval rating has a net negative among the nation’s voters, and more say things in the country is on the wrong track than that they are going in the right direction. 

We highlight Mr. Trumps struggle and lack of clarity with growing racist incidents around the country

More recently, his political rise was built on promulgating the lie that the nation’s first black president was born in Kenya. He then launched his campaign with a speech describing Mexicans as rapists.

The media often falls back on euphemisms when describing Trump’s comments about race: racially loaded, racially charged, racially tinged, racially sensitive. And Trump himself has claimed that he is “the least racist person.” But here’s the truth: Donald Trump is a racist. He talks about and treats people differently based on their race. We at Freedom First International stand with a growing number of Dissatisfied Americans who believe He has done so for years, and he is still doing so.

Lastly, Our organization with other groups is now planning a major protest in Downtown Chicago to offset and also in opposition to the state of the Union.

The time will be Tuesday 1 East Jackson Blvd Chicago, IL at 4:30p. Two years ago our group along with others put just over 16,000 folks in Downtown Chicago to Protest the Trump election.

 

We are firmly convinced that we are on the right side of history and Mr.Trump’s dangerous racist agenda must be stopped.

 

Sincerely,

Bishop Gregg L.Greer President of Freedom First International
