‘THANK YOU FOR PRAYING FOR ME’: Herschel Walker shuts down Majority Whip James Clyburn’s attempt to shun black men for voting Trump

“That’s the first time I really have heard a Democrat – anyone from the Democratic party – talk about praying for anybody or Jesus or God, or anything like that.”

Former NFL superstar Herschel Walker, a proud and vocal supporter of President Trump, took to Twitter Sunday to express a counter to the widespread Democratic narrative on race. 

In a video, Walker pushed back against House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.), who shamed black men that voted for Trump, according to BizPacReview. 

“I’m going to pray for you as well because you took the president a little bit out of context, which is okay because the Democrats have been doing that for a long time just to get a vote and I think that’s what you’re doing right now,” he said. 

In the video, Walker told the 80-year-old Democrat that he was taught to always respect his elders and thanked Clyburn for praying for him, but reminded him that when it comes to “systemic racism,” Clyburn is the one that has been in office for 27 years – implying that things could have been done. 

“Thank you for praying for me,” Walker said. “That’s the first time I really have heard a Democrat – anyone from the Democratic party – talk about praying for anybody or Jesus or God, or anything like that.” 

The video came in response to Clyburn’s Fox News appearance, during which he suggested that Trump is a racist because he referred to former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman as a “dog” after she turned on him, BizPacReview reports. 

“I’m the father of three black women, I am the son of a black woman,” Clyburn said. “If any black man can go in front of a polling place and cast a vote for a man who referred to a black woman as a dog on national television, I’m going to have to pray for them. I will have to pray for them.” 

The context? 

President Trump used the term in a tweet responding to Omarosa being fired by then-White House Chief of Staff Jim Kelly. 

“When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog.”

Clyburn also told hosts that the only way Joe Biden could lose on Tuesday would be “for voter suppression to be successful.” 

Walker has been a longtime supporter of President Trump, even touting a “deep, personal friendship” with him at the Republican National Convention in August.

In a final push for the president, Walker blasted Joe Biden for threatening a second lockdown via a Twitter video captioned “Faith over Fear … we don’t run away and hide, we face our problems head on together!”

“We lock down, we leave our first responders, we leave our military out there to fend for us while we’re hiding away scared away of the big bad boogeyman, you know this virus they keep talking about,” he said.

“We can’t leave our people out there alone…Let’s not leave them out there, let’s get out there and fight and we don’t want no lockdown.”

Obtained Emails on Election Night Heighten Georgia’s Mysterious Ballot-Counting

Published

Georgia Voting

Just the News has obtained internal emails from election workers in Georgia’s Fulton County has increased confusion and mystery regarding the November presidential elections. As a reminder, Just the News writes, “Uncertainty arose regarding the ballot processing operation at Fulton County’s State Farm Arena on and after Election Night, when ballot-scanning apparently continued even after most election workers had reportedly been sent home.”

Affidavits from Election Night poll workers state they were directed by officials to stop working around 10:30 pm on November 3rd, and return at 8:30 am the next day. Multiple local and national media outlets reported absentee ballot counting stopped around 10:30 pm and cited county spokeswoman Regina Waller.

In truth, counting at the State Farm Arena continued past 10:30 pm. Waller herself told JTN in December that contrary to media reports, many citing her, that she had “stated to all media…that although several workers were released to go home, a small team remained behind to assist with scanning ballots.”

Through an open records request, JTN obtained a few suspect emails, in which Waller does in fact state counting ended at around 10:30 pm. The email, timestamped at 10:22 pm on Nov. 3, addressed to several county officials as well as State Farm Arena spokesman Garin Narain stated, “the workers in the Absentee Ballot Processing area will get started again at 8 am tomorrow.”

When reached for comment via email, Waller only stated the email “was in response to a question received asking when all workers would return” but did not respond to a request to see the original email to which she was responding. So then why did she keep a “small” team behind?

Another email from Fulton County Interagency Affairs Manager Fran Phillips-Calhoun timestamped at 11:15 pm that same night, almost an hour after Waller said counting stopped, Phillips-Calhoun’s email may suggest otherwise. “FYI-[the Secretary of State’s office] just sort of threw the team under the bus stating that ‘we had a great day, but we decided to throw in the towel for the night even though the public is waiting…’ on the results.”

Phillips-Calhoun’s email was sent to Waller and several other county staffers. Phillips-Calhoun did not respond to requests for comment, nor did the message specify which statement from the Secretary of State’s office she was referring to.

Pro-Trump super PAC rebrands to ‘stop Joe’s corruption, socialist agenda, liberalism’

It’s new name? Committee to Defeat the President.

A super PAC that heavily supported President Trump during the 2020 presidential campaign is changing its direction to focus on the new administration. 

The Committee to Defend the President officially rebranded itself on Wednesday as Joe Biden takes office. Its mission is now aimed at taking down the incoming democrat. 

It’s new name? Committee to Defeat the President. 

During the 2020 campaign cycle, the PAC reportedly raised more than $16 million to support Trump and his “America First policy agenda, BizPacReview reports. The group will now focus on “undermining” Biden’s agenda. 

“NEW NAME. SAME MISSION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT & STOP JOE’s Corruption…Socialist Agenda…Liberalism,” the website says. 

The committee told Fox News it plans to match its 2020 fundraising during the 2022 election cycle, and pledges a seven-figure investment “to expose the Biden-Harris administration and other Democrats for their left-wing politics.” 

The group will push new ads, opposition research, social media engagement, and “other innovative tactics.” 

The PAC’s “new mission is to save Americans from the radical, dangerous policies of the Biden-Harris administration,” Ted Harvey, the group’s chairman, said. 

“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will work around the clock to reverse the unprecedented progress of the Trump presidency,” Harvey added. 

“From day one, we simply cannot let that happen. It is our patriotic duty to work around the clock and stop them – before the damage done to America becomes irreversible,” he said. 

But, this isn’t the first time the PAC has switched gears. 

Founded in 2013, it was originally called the Stop Hillary Pac, according to BizPacReview.
