How Trump and the GOP saved this single black mother
The same conservative values that brought freedom to blacks in America are the same values pushing them forward in today’s society.
One of these freedoms being the right for individuals to bare arms to protect their families and communities.
And one single black mother tells her story as to why she left the Democratic party. In fact, she tells why she voted for Trump and how the GOP saved her.
The woman’s name is Shaneen Allen and she spent 48 days in jail and faced a long legal battle after she was arrested in 2013.
Allen, a phlebotomist, was driving on the Atlantic City Expressway when she was pulled over for making an unsafe lane change in October 2013.
She told the police officer that she was carrying a firearm and that she had a Pennsylvania-issued concealed carry permit.
‘I thought my license was just like a driver’s license,’ she said.
The nurse and mother of two faced a prison term and a felony conviction for mistakenly thinking that her Pennsylvania firearms permit would be recognized in New Jersey.
Now, in the mind of a leftist this woman would have been seen as a criminal. Thus, most wouldn’t have given her dilemma a second thought. But Allen was given attention by the GOP when the Republican governor, Chris Christie freed her from a pretrial intervention program.
Not only was she pardon by Christie, but Allen’s experience inspired a new bill proposed by the GOP that requires states to recognize each other’s right-to-carry permits. The bill is called the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, H.R. 38, passed the GOP-led House earlier this month.
Allen explains that her situation prompted her to switch from a Democrat to a Republican and vote for Trump over Hillary Clinton. She says it also turned her into an advocate for the 2nd Amendment, including lobbying lawmakers to pass the measure.
“Hopefully I’ll be at the White House next to (President) Trump signing this bill,’ said Allen, who has become a face of the Republican effort to break down barriers to carrying concealed firearms between states. ‘Republicans put their money where their mouth was.’
The Bill has currently been approved by the House and now goes to the Senate.
‘When you see the system go wrong in the life of a real person it becomes more compelling,’ said GOP New Jersey Rep. Tom MacArthur, who met with Allen and voted for the legislation. ‘The woman did nothing wrong and yet her family was thrown into real chaos.’
Republicans to the rescue.
Black Americans have seen tremendous results in their communities by the policies being implemented by President Trump.
As we have reported before the black community has reached the lowest unemployment rate our country has ever seen.
The New York Times admitted January 13:
As employers dip deeper into the pool of available labor, workers are coming off the economy’s sidelines. The participation rate for what economists call prime-age workers — those ages 25 to 54 — hit a seven-year high in December. Employment gains have been especially strong for groups that often face discrimination — unemployment for African-Americans fell to 6.8 percent in November, the lowest rate on record.
Of course the Democrats love to attribute this amazing success as Obama’s doing. But you can’t have the worst economic recovery in decades for 8 long years and then all of a sudden claim responsibility once you’re out of the White House.
And while black Americans are seeing such positive results in just one year under new leadership is it any wonder why new polls show that blacks favor Trump and his policies more than they did in 2016?
According to the Atlantic among black men, Trump’s “2017 average approval rating significantly exceeds his 2016 vote share,” The article points out that now “23 percent of black men approved of Trump’s performance versus 11 percent of black women.”
On average, Trump’s support among blacks is around 17 percent, versus 8 percent score reported in 2016 exit polls.
A second poll by CBS showed a similar level of black support for Trump, reporting 18 percent of blacks now support President Trump.
Interestingly, only 41 percent were firmly against the president. Thus, 59 percent of blacks are willing to give him a chance.
35 percent of blacks believe they are better off under President Trump, while 21 percent say the same. The 43 percent are “hold outs”, stuck in the Afro/Daishiki/Platform Shoes Era.
Could Trump garner 35 percent of the vote in future elections? As Sarah Palin would say, “You betcha!”
Keep in mind these polls show Trumps popularity growing despite all of the “Trump is racist” rhetoric of the Democrats.
Trust me, there are many more Allens out there. And they will deliver for Trump on 2018.
