Dinesh D’Souza was born in Bombay, India. #justsayin

 This guy needs to go out and buy a mirror and then look at himself.

Then he needs to  look at its own immigration papers to see if he's here legally.  LOL

Sec. Mnuchin: $20 bill redesign featuring Harriet Tubman will no longer be unveiled in 2020; design process has been delayed; no new imagery will be unveiled until 2028.

It would do us all well to remember that Mnuchin,

a Jewish man,

stood behind trump at Trump Tower when

trump said that there were good neo-nazis in Charlottesville.

This woman freed more slaves than Abraham Lincoln.

And she didn't do it with a stroke of a pen or sitting in the Oval Office,

she did it with the grit and determination of  her own body and her own brain to lead them to Freedom.

She certainly has earned and deserves our respect as a woman and as an American success story.

 

I imagine as a woman who was a former slave and who had seen all the ugliness of slavery--

having survived several brutal beatings herself--

She probably was not inclined to smile a great deal for the camera.

Harriet Tubman fought enormous injustice and promoted human liberty. She exhibited courage in fighting and breaking unjust laws, and took the lead in putting her views into action. She deserves to be on the $20 bill. http://j.mp/2EpkZau

Michael Steele Retweeted Cato Institute

At one point #HarrietTubman had a $40K bounty on her head. In the face of that she noted "I had reasoned this out in my mind there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other." I believe that's worth $20.

Maybe former slaves don't smile because slavery isn't very funny.

-I think whoever is on currency should be an individual who played an important part in our country's founding and sour-faced Harriet Tubman doan uh fit the bill.

I would recommend a woman who gave us the symbol of our endearing country, Betsy Ross.

of course she will be unacceptable to liberals because she is white.

 if you don't think that Harriet Tubman is great because she risked her life many times to free all those slaves,

Then do you think slavery was no big deal?

If Nip's not careful, with that last comment, he'll give the impression that conservatism = white nationalism.

There's actually nothing wrong with liberals, or anyone else giving African-Americans their due.

As for Ms. Ross, it might be best to commemorate those whose contributions can actually be PROVEN.                     (from WIKI):

"However, there is no archival evidence or other recorded verbal tradition to substantiate this story of the first American flag. It appears that the story first surfaced in the writings of her grandson in the 1870s (a century after the fact), with no mention or documentation in earlier decades.["

This is the first hearing about it.  These are geared towards coin collectors. :)

There is another one minted honoring Native Americans as well.

Here’s the president’s campaign, going back to the well, knowing that his hardcore continues to loathe the nation’s first black president.

This is truly amazing. 

Essentially: Obama’s didn’t stop me from accepting Russian help to win the election! It’s HIS fault neither I nor anyone from my campaign notified the FBI about the Russian contacts.

trump's racist supporters got him elected the first time,

so he's got reason to believe that they can do it again.

I personally would acknowledge that Harriet Tubman was a heroine in every sense of the word...but she played no part in the foundation of the country.
