“Ivanka” and “#NepotismBarbie” are trending on social media
Unemployment in June fell to 11.1%, after it hit an all-time high of 14.7% in April. That means there are an additional 20 million Americans who are now unemployed thanks to the coronavirus pandemic – which is huge until you remember it was more than 40 million just a few short months ago as the nation shut down to slow the spread.
Ivanka Trump doesn’t see it that way. The Senior Advisor to the President has a different take: “Find Something New.”
“There has never been a more critical time for Americans of all ages and backgrounds to be aware of the multiple pathways to career success and gain the vocational training and skills they need to fill jobs in a changing economy,” the First Daughter said, according to the AP which notes she “graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.”
Trump is co-chair of the White House’s American Workforce Policy Advisory Board, which created the “Find Something New” campaign, in collaboration with the Ad Council.
More than ever our #PledgetoAmericasWorkers is focused on helping Americans 🇺🇸 bolster skills to find new jobs + navigate career transitions.

Ads are being funded by more than 20 major corporations and organizations. Here’s the first, which offers nothing but platitudes – and no tangible assistance.
There;’s also a website that, again, is little more than platitudes.
The “program,” as SiriusXM’s Michelangelo Signorile notes, puts the blame – and the burden – entirely on the unemployed person, and takes it off the Trump administration, which is responsible for the worst-management of the coronavirus pandemic anywhere in the world.
Only they could come up with the most privileged, nasty slogan for people who’ve lost their jobs.

Many on social media are pointing to Ivanka Trump’s “privilege” with anger and disgust, causing “Ivanka” and “#NepotismBarbie” to trend. They seem to consider the daughter of a billionaire president who has a job in her father’s administration (and many patents from China too) telling them to “find something new” is just plain tone deaf.
Ivanka, the poster child for privilege and having everything handed to her, has an idea:
“Let them eat cake”

Ivanka is a skewed product of wealth, privilege, and nepotism. What can she possibly have to say of value to regular Americans?

It’s the Ivanka version of Marie Antoinette’s if they don’t have bread, “let them eat cake”. It’s the epitome of privilege combined with being not that smart. https://t.co/NOE9u38Wh8

Ivanka Trump in Gif form. What a tone deaf, omigarchal, privileged brat. I refuse to be lectured by a grown woman who’s never had to work a day in her life. Bite me troll. #FindSomethingNew pic.twitter.com/YmyIv9niKR

Calling on Americans to find new jobs w/ the highest unemployment since the Depression is shockingly tone deaf.
Making lifelong nepotist Ivanka Trump—who has literally never had to look for a real job in her life—the face of a campaign urging self-reliance is simply surreal. https://t.co/pN3nqZGMQM

Hey everyone, it’s Ivanka. I’m a normal person, like everyone else. There’s no crisis/pandemic. No unemployment. US economy is the best ever. So many great paying jobs available. Yay!
If you don’t like your job, it’s easy “find something new”.
Her tone deafness is disgusting… https://t.co/4ooxUMsS3C

Video Shows Cop Tasing Black 16-Year Old Boy as He Arrived at His Girlfriend’s House — He Was Then Held for 21 Days
A shocking video revealed a Florida state trooper attacking a teenager when he went to his girlfriend’s house.
According to CBS12, 16-year-old Jack Rodeman was standing on the back porch of his girlfriend’s home. He was reaching for his phone to text her that he was outside so she could let him in. It was known that he was going to be there. He has permission to be.
Still, a state trooper tased him, put him in handcuffs and took him to jail.
The whole event was caught on the family’s surveillance camera.
“Put your hands behind your head!” the trooper can be heard yelling.
“I didn’t do nothing…” the teen said.
That’s when the cop deployed his taser.
“I mean my son was just standing there on his phone,” Rodeman’s mother explained. “He wasn’t reaching in his pockets. The officer there was no threat to that officer.”
The teenager was held for 21 days in prison and never committed a crime.
CBS 12 revealed that the official police report said that the trooper believed he was a “suspicious person” because he was dressed in black. It also said that when he saw the police car he “darted” and hid. It’s unclear if the “darting” was just to walk to his girlfriend’s back porch.
The police officer said he was forced to tase the teen because he wouldn’t put his hands behind his back. The video below shows otherwise.
The video also shows the teen’s girlfriend coming outside where she presumably told the police officer that the kid was her boyfriend. She walks over to them both while her boyfriend is handcuffed.
There’s no excuse from police for why he was kept in jail for 21 days.
Now, his mother wants action.
Read the full report and see the shocking video below:
Watch: House Republicans Gang Up on Democrat as They Try to End 1/6 Insurrection Hearing With FBI Director
House Republicans on Tuesday tried to derail a hearing with FBI Director Christopher Wray on Donald Trump’s January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. As California Democratic U.S. Congressman Ro Khanna was speaking to Wray, Republicans tried to end the proceedings.
As Khanna is berating Director Wray, who told the House Oversight and Reform Committee the FBI did not have advance knowledge there would be a deadly attempt to overturn the election in a violent attack on lawmakers, one GOP Congressman interrupted.
“Madam Chair, I move to adjourn,” the Republicans says, interrupting Rep. Khanna, and violating the rules in the process.
Khanna, looks around to see who interrupted him, asks, “Madam Chair, if I could pause…”
As he speaks another Republican interrupts him.
“There’s been a motion, Madam Chair.”
Another person in the chamber, presumably a Democratic Congress, stunned, says, “HGe doesn’t have the floor,” meaning the Republican has no right to speak.
“The gentleman is not recognized,” the Chair tells the Republicans. “It is Mr. Khanna’s time.”
“We had an insurrection, we don’t need disruptions here,” Khanna said, addressing the Republicans. “Can we allow the democratic process to continue please?”
Republicans insisted they had a right to motion to adjourn, but the Chair told them they were “out of order.”
Democrats called for order as Republicans walked around the dais.

Stephen Miller Says He’s Fighting ‘Transgender Ideology’ Because Schools Are Teaching ‘People Are Whatever They Want to Be’
Stephen Miller, advisor to the former president, attacked on Wednesday what he calls “transgender ideology,” claiming it is so concerning to a democratic society it impacts “what it means to have and maintain a country,” and will force all Americans to “adopt a transgender viewpoint.”
He did not explain what that means.
Miller says he’s fighting to protect America’s “Judeo Christian heritage” and “Western Civilization,” although he never specifies from what, just transgender people in general.
A white supremacist who served as Senior Advisor to then-President Donald Trump and continues in that role, Miller told Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody, on his Real America’s Voice web show, that he is fighting an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission case, claiming that the EEOC failed “to include a constitutionally required religious exemption.”
Miller started his own far right wing law firm, America First Legal, from which he says he is battling the EEOC “so that people can speak their truth.” That apparently excludes transgender people.
“So they will be forcing religious Americans, religious believers, people of faith, to violate their deeply held beliefs, their own private conscience rights and to adopt a transgender viewpoint,” Miller claims. “This is really an issue about science, it is about religion, but also about science because the undisputed biological definition of sex, really, is being turned upside down because of a radical agenda that really now is beginning in our elementary schools teaching young people, that there are no boys and girls, men and women, but in fact, people are whatever they want to be, which has profound implications for medicine for culture, for religion, and for truth itself,” Miller said.
(For decades if not longer Americans have told their children they can be “whatever they want to be.”)
“We are a country whose ethical, religious and moral heritage is Judeo Christian,” Miller said. “What it means is that Judeo Christian values, form the bedrock of our declaration. Our constitution, our civil rights, our moral character, who we are as a people who we are as a country, we inherit from our founders that deep religious faith that deep cultural attachment to these principles, and when they are under assault, our whole nation is under assault, we ought to be teaching and inculcating into our children these fundamental values and principles that made us who we are, that makes Western civilization what it is that is critical to having not just a great present, but an amazing future for this country.”
“My personal view is that this is a failed ideology that is destined to topple in on itself. For this agenda to succeed for the transgender ideology to succeed, they need people to be scared and quiet and not to speak the plain truth. Because once people say I’m not going to bow down to something I know is untrue. I’m not going to be afraid I am going to speak my mind respectfully tastefully, honestly, it’s not going to hold it will crumble the edifice will collapse.”
