By Kathy Wray Coleman, editor-in-chief


CLEVELANDURBANNEWS.COM-WASHINGTON, D.C.- United States President Donald Trump delivered his State of the Union address before a joint chamber of congress Tuesday night, his first since taking office last year amid a politically divided country on issues ranging from healthcare to tax reform, scientific research, public education, homeland security and women's and Civil Rights.


While he ignored education, scientific research, Civil Rights, and the growing women's rights and MeToo movements that have drawn nationwide protests at a historic level, the president touched on several of the aforementioned, in addition to other public policy matters, including terrorism,  infrastructure reform, and immigration, the latter of which was a focus of his speech, and the impetus, in part, for the temporary government shut down.


His performance as to the nearly hour and a half long address was lackluster, said political pundits, particularly in comparison to the ultra- articulate Barack Obama, Trump's predecessor and the nation's first Black president.


CNN reports that less than half of people who watched it have favorable views, the worst rating of a presidential State of the Union address in 20 years.

 

Experts and critics quickly took to the airways and to social media, and deemed much of the president's speech orchestrated "lies."


"Together we are building a safe, strong and proud America," said Trump, a Republican and billionaire businessman and reality television star turned president who edged Hillary Clinton, a former secretary of state and the Democratic nominee, in a heated presidential election in 2016.


The president annoyed some Black leaders during his speech when he erroneously took credit for lower unemployment rates in recent years in the African- American and Hispanic communities, which were due largely to policies initiated by the Obama administration.


And he angered them further, and others, when he lobbied against what he calls chain migration, immigrants having green card leeway under the law to bring distant relatives to America with them..


"We were the only people who came to America in chains," said state Rep Bill Patmon (D-10), a Cleveland Democrat and former city councilman who is Black and ran unsuccessfully for mayor last year. "And the unemployment rate in the Black community is still below par."


According to research by the Bureau of Labor Statisticsthe unemployment rate nationally is at 4.7 % and for Blacks it dropped to 6.8% in December, the lowest since the government began tracking the figure in 1972.


It peaked for Blacks at 16.8% in 1984 and has declined about a percentage point over the last eight years, and after Obama took office in 2009.


The unemployment rate for Latinos is at a low of 4.8 %, which was reached also in 2006 and 2007.

 

"The unemployment rate  in inner cities is as high as 40 percent in some instances, and reducing that by a few points is not nearly enough," said  state Representative Patmon. "They need to do more to train and fully employ young Black men in particular."


Trump emphasized his initiative for immigration reform and urged bipartisan support of the Republican sponsored bill, a four- tiered legislative proposal that gives some 1.8 million undocumented immigrants potential relief over a possible 12-year period, and that calls for the securing of the border via 'a wall,' and for vague requirements to gain citizenship such as moral  character. The fourth prong of the bill creates more stringent standards for  getting green cards.


Four of the nine U.S. Supreme Court justices were in attendance, namely Chief Justice John Robers, Elena Kagan, whom Obama appointed and one of three women on the bench, and Stephen Bryer, and Neil Gorsuch, a Trump appointee who won confirmation amid opposition from liberal groups and most of the congressional Democrats.


The president pushed for infrastructure reform, complimented himself as to congressional passage of the VA Accountability Act, and said jobs have become increasingly more available to Americans since he took office.

 

And he addressed the opioid crisis, a nationwide epidemic that has dogged Ohio in recent years, among other states.

He said he wants to bridge the partisan divide, an unlikely agenda, whether sincere or not, given his stances on issues such as healthcare, and immigration and tax reform, stances that his critics, largely Democrats, say are racist, and detrimental to the nation's most vulnerable people.


The president's claims of nationwide tax relief across the board since congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December have been dismissed as disingenuous by congressional Democrats, all of whom, at least in the House of Representatives, voted against the controversial bill that is now federal law.


Opponents of the new tax law, including Democratic Congresswomen Marcia Fudge and Marcy Kaptur, whose constituents include Clevelanders, say poor people, seniors on fixed-incomes, minorities and other disenfranchised groups do not benefit, and that the bill was passed on the backs of the middle class and working poor.

 

“Despite what Republicans claim, trickle-down economics doesn’t work," said Congresswoman Fudge, one of two Blacks from Ohio in congress, the other of whom is U.S, Rep. Joyce Beatty, a Columbus Democrat

 

A Warrensville Heights Democrat who represents Ohio's majority Black 11th congressional district, which includes Cleveland. and several  of its eastern suburbs of Cuyahoga County, and a largely Black pocket of Akron and staggering suburbs of Summit County, Rep. Fudge said the tax cuts referenced by Trump in his State of the Union speech on Tuesday benefit the wealthy.


"History has proven that tax cuts for the wealthy add to our nation’s deficit, they do not decrease the debt or create jobs," said Fudge.

 

Republicans control both chambers of congress and the White House.

Archived article below dated May, 2017 and by Cleveland Urban News.Com Staff Reporter Gwendolyn Piits and Editor-in-Chief Kathy Wray Coleman


CLEVELAND, Ohio- California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, a Los Angeles Democrat, has become a thorn in the side of President Donald Trump, and she brought her message against the boastful Republican president to Cleveland last week, speaking on Saturday, May 6, 2017 before a sold out crowd at the Cuyahoga County Democratic Women's Caucus (CDWC) annual brunch and also that day to a group of Black leaders, elected officials and community activists at G- Lancer restaurant in downtown Cleveland. (Editor's Note: Kathy Wray Coleman, who leads the Imperial Women Coalition, and is editor-in chief at

Clevelandurbannews.com and the KathyWrayColemanOnlineNewsBlog.Com , introduced Congresswoman Waters at Lancer's to a audience that gave the lawmaker a standing ovation as she entered the room).

 

The  critique by Waters is not official as U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy will give the Democratic response to the presidents State of the Union Address.


Waters' visit to Cleveland May 6, 2017 , which was not her first, is in addition to the campaign by Waters against Trump's policies, a campaign that she has waged on the floor of the United States House of Representatives, and also to major news outlets such as CNN and MSNBC, not to mention to listeners at public forums in other cities, both large and small, across the nation.


At the women's brunch on Saturday, which was held at the Cleveland Botanical Garden, she labeled the billionaire and former real estate mogul who upset Democrat Hillary Clinton in November to take the presidency an outright "liar." And this was before a capacity crowd of Democrats, mainly women, including three female gubernatorial candidates for the 2018 governor's race in Ohio,  at least three state representatives, council persons from across the state, members of the Ohio State Board of Education, former congresswoman Mary Rose Oakar, Toledo Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, and Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish.


Columbus Councilwoman Elizabeth Brown, a daughter of U.S. senator Sherrod Brown, and a Democrat like her father, also spoke.


Columbus Councilwoman Brown, like Waters, was recognized by the CDWC for her community service, as were Lana Moresky and Amy Hanauer.


Waters called Trump an enemy to women, the Black community, and the country in general, and she said that the president should be considered for impeachment relative to the fiasco regarding the ongoing investigation around Russian email hacking during the presidential election.


Trump, said Waters, has distanced the nation's allies, and "knows nothing about foreign policy."


The most senior of 12 Black women currently in congress, Waters took issue with the president's efforts to get the GOP dominated congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and she took objection to his stances on medicaid and medicare, as well as his positions on jobs, education and reproductive rights.


The president's anti-Muslim travel ban is ludicrous at best, Waters said.


She shot down nearly every policy Trump has proposed or has pushed through congress since taking office in January,


And Blacks and women, said Waters, are disregarded by Trump because he subordinates Black people and "just does not respect women."


Though Trump was a focus, Waters also spoke on women's issues to the largely White audience, and she urged women to run for office.


"Representative Waters' speech was so moving," said CDWC Chairwoman Cindy Demsey, who presented the congresswoman with her organization's courage award. "Women were actually cheering from their seats."


Even suburbanites at the brunch were motivated, some saying they wish they lived in Cleveland, a majority Black major American city where political action is ongoing, including the women's march in January and the science march held last month.


"I think she [Congresswoman Waters] is just fantastic." said Lakewood Councilman Dan O'Malley. "I wish I lived in Cleveland and I am ready to take action now."


At Lancer's in Cleveland's Black community the tone against Trump was nearly the same, the congresswoman entering the room to a standing ovation from Black leaders, elected officials and community activists, and then taking the microphone and immediately blasting the president as a detriment to Blacks and to the overall welfare of the country.


She said that Trump is not thinking about the middle class and poor people and is about tax breaks for the rich, and "money, money money."


And when she called for Trump to be impeached if an investigation calls for such as she did earlier that day at the women's brunch, the audience broke into applause,


The Black community must vote, she said, and Black elected officials have got to be more assertive like community activists in getting across a message of resistance and empowerment.


The seasoned lawmaker urged more protests in the streets to address what she says is the president's anti-Black and anti-Democratic agenda, and she said that Black people and other disenfranchised groups must "resist, resist, resist."


The Rev. Dr. E. Theophillus Caviness, likely the city's most influential Black preacher, who is senior pastor at Greater Abyssinia Baptist Church and leads the Cleveland chapters of the National Action Network and Southern Christian Leadership Conference, told

Clevelandurbannews.com and the KathyWrayColemanOnlineNewsBlog.Com that Blacks leaders in Cleveland support Congresswoman Waters without reservation.


"We support what Congresswoman Waters stands for and we want people nationwide to know that she has our backing here in Cleveland," said Caviness.


The Black crowd at Lancer's included Cleveland city council persons, state representatives, members of the Cleveland NAACP and Black Women's Political Action Committee, political candidates, and community activists.


"She was wonderful," said East Cleveland Board of Education president Una H.R. Kennon of Waters.


Others agreed.


"Congresswoman Waters is fabulous, and we support her," said Cleveland activist Dionne Thomas Carmichael.


State representative Bill Patmon, a Cleveland Democrat, told

Clevelandurbannews.com and the KathyWrayColemanOnlineNewsBlog.Com that Waters understands Black people and can be trusted to work in the best interest of the Black community.


"Every Black person in town should have been here to hear her speech," said Patmon.


At both events Waters was escorted by her husband, Sydney Williams, a former United States Ambassador to the Bahamas, and a former Cleveland Browns NFL football player.

By Kathy Wray Coleman, editor-in-chief


CLEVELANDURBANNEWS.COM, COLUMUS, Ohio-The successor to Ohio Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bill O'Neil, the only Democrat on the Ohio Supreme Court who is set to resign Jan. 26 in his quest this year to become governor, and who, by state law, must resign from the bench since Ohio judges are precluded from seeking nonjudicial office, was named Thursday by term-limited Gov John Kasich, a Republican and former 2016 candidate for United States president.

 

Kasich chose Youngstown area judge Mary DeGenaro, who set on the 7th District Court of Appeals prior to her appointment this week, to fill the unexpired term left open relative to O'Neil's controversial bid for governor, the Democrat upsetting his own party by quitting four-years into his six-year term, an exit that gave Republicans, through Gov Kasich, an in to turn the court all Republican, which last occurred in 2012.

 

Kasich's appointment also makes the court majority female during an era where the women's movement is flourishing behind the controversial election of Donald Trump as president, a Republican whose reelection might cringe upon who is governor of Ohio in 2020.

 

Ohio is a swing state that Trump won in 2018 in a close presidential election against former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee.

 

Voters have never elected a Black to the Ohio Supreme Court, though some have run for election, including former Ohio congresswoman the late Stephanie Tubbs Jones, retired 8th District Court of Appeals judge Sara J. Harper, former Cleveland Municipal Court judge C. Ellen Connally, also a former president of Cuyahoga County Council, and former 10th District Court of Appeals judge Yvette McGee Brown, who was appointed to the Ohio Supreme Court in 2011 by then governor Ted Strickland, a Democrat,  but lost election to the seat the following year. (Editor's note; C Ellen Connally nearly beat former chief justice Thomas Moyer, who died suddenly in 2010 while serving on the bench, as the 2004 Democratic nominee for the Ohio Supreme Court).

 

Comprised of a seven -member bench whose justices are elected to six-year terms and, per state law,  cannot seek reelection once they reach 70 years of age, the state's high court is led by Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor, a former lieutenant governor under former Republican governor Bob Taft.

 

O'Neil, 70, chose Chantelle Lewis, a Lorain schools elementary principal who is Black and a former East Cleveland City Council member, as his lieutenant governor running mate.

 

His gubernatorial ambitions, however, are far -fetched, say political pundits, as to winning the Democratic nomination for governor, Richard Chordray, a former Ohio secretary of state and state attorney general, and former director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in Washington, D.C., the front runner, ahead of former congressman Dennis Kucinich, also a former Cleveland mayor, both of them also favored above former state Rep Connie Pillich in the four-way race.

 

Republicans pursuing the governorship are state attorney general Mike DeWine, a former U.S. senator and front runner for his party's ticket, and lieutenant governor Mary Taylor, the underdog  candidate.

 

O'Neil is under fire for the a recent Facebook post where he brags of allegedly sleeping with some 50 women and says he is tired of escalating news of sexual harassment of women by congressmen and in Hollywood, and elsewhere, now dubbed the MeToo Movement,.

 

The president of the Ohio State Bar Association, Randall Comer,  quickly demanded O'Neil's immediate resignation in response to the fallout, as have state legislators, O'Neil dismissing it as political and saying he has not yet officially declared his candidacy with the board of elections and will resign this week as planned, and that his plans to run for governor have not changed.

 

The deadline for filing petitions with the board of elections for potential eligibility for placement on the ballot for the May 8  primary election is Feb 7.

 

The general election is November 6, 2018.
