"I Am Not Corrupt And I Don't Like Money" - Minister Of Transportation, Amaechi Fires at Nigerians (Video) . .
Mr Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister of Transportation and immediate past Governor of Rivers State, has declared his honesty in an interview with Channels TV.
When asked whether he is corrupt, Amaechi said; "Is my honesty in doubt? I have told Nigerians and I repeat to Nigerians today I am not corrupt and I don't like money. I am not one swayed by money. I have lived a character that most Nigerians can tell you. "I try as much as possible not to annoy God by saying I am honest. But with all modesty, I am a honest Nigerian and there are very few honest Nigerians." On why people keep having the impression that he's corrupt, Amaechi replied; "When did that impression start? Nyesom Wike becomes the governor. He takes documents from Government house that people cant read, and says oh, we sold Gas turbines and disappeared with the money. He set up a panel of inquiry? Publish the report." When asked whether he thinks the corruption angle came because he led the campaign organization of President Buhari, "When you talk about the PDP angle, they are bitter that we fought and led the movement against the former government and PDP, and we were successful to have removed them from power. If I was corrupt, why didn't President Goodluck prosecute me? The fight between Goodluck and Rivers state government or myself lasted for two years," Amaechi said: -VIDEO ON BLOG
Charmaine Yoest, former president of Americans United for Life will be appointed to the position of assistant secretary for public affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services by United States President Donald Trump.⠀
This move has come under fire by many pro-choice advocates as Yoest is strongly anti-abortion and the group she formerly led, the AUL, is a pro-life advocacy group. In her new position, Yoest will be in charge of directing the department of health and human services' communications and messaging.⠀
Speaker of the house Paul Ryan in a tweet praised the appointment, "Congrats to Charmaine Yoest on appointment as Asst Sec of HHS. Yet again, this admin demonstrates strong commitment to the pro-life cause"⠀
The executive vice president of Planned Parenthood also released a statement saying, "It is unacceptable that someone with a history of promoting myths and false information about women's health is appointed to a government position whose main responsibility is to provide the public with accurate and factual information."⠀

So we somehow find ourselves here, 100 days into the most significant invasion of the Strange into popular consciousness since the 60s: Donald Trump, The President. The flamboyant reality-TV-show-hosting, tabloid-starring, famous-for-being-an-egomaniac, incompetent business empire heir somehow someway became the fucking President a few months ago & this shit is still happening; we are still waking up every day in a world where Donald Trump is the President of the United States of America. What the fuck.
Millions of people have already had their rights trampled on by this manchild's illegal travel bans & illegal deportations & the guy's got plans on deck to make things even worse. Wth do we do about this?
I think the most important fundamental thing that anyone can/should do, whether or not they've got the time to take part in more significant activism or the money to donate to legal defense funds & resistance organizations, is simply to stay conscious of what is going on & not forget or let anyone you know forget how abnormal & bizarre this is. Remind yourself & others, as I have above, of who this man was & has been to the public eye before this happened, & don't ever in your mind let him slip comfortably into the role of President of the United States. He is by no means a normal President & the office has been permanently desecrated & delegitimized by his occupation of it. I've been referring to him, as above, as "Donald Trump, The President" rather than "President Donald Trump" for the attention this phrasing draws to just how out of place its terms are next to one another.
This is not to glorify/idealize the office of President and pretend like all those before him were absolutely dignified public servants (most have been power-hungry sociopathic imperialist warmongers, including liberal America's beloved St. Obama). It is to say, yeah, Presidents suck, & yeah, the office of the President itself is a relic of monarchy which ought to have no place in a system which wishes to call itself a democracy, but goddammit, Donald Fucking Trump of all people?! Drag his name through the mud, casually. He is not just a bad President. He is an historical shame.
Kim Roney came by today bearing seed packets 🌸I won't tell you who to vote for for city council, but do some research and vote for someone! We may not be able to do a whole lot about the shit storm that is national politics, but I think it's heartening to remember that there's a lot to be done in our own communities. 🌱
Although I know that this offends people deeply, I still must share this message. I spent many years as a strict observer of Christianity, and I say to all of you that research and reason have absolutely ruled the Bible out as a legitimate source of divine inspiration. Most of you are completely unaware of the atrocities committed by your god and those which he has additionally prescribed throughout his bloodthirsty history. I say this with love and hope, discard your unsupported and misguided beliefs. They are no more necessary than Zeus or Thor, Muhammad or Joseph Smith. Begin thinking critically about your childhood indoctrinations. Respect believers to the extent that all ideas should be respected. PS- You literally think that I will burn in fire for eternity because a being has no empirical evidence with which to prove his OMNIPOTENCE. You believe billions will spend eternity in HELL for not believing in a god they have never heard of (Yes, read Romans.) Science and reason are all that you need to be happy, successful, etc. Remove emotion from the realm of fact, and I assure you that you will become enlightened as many great minds have before you. With love and respect, please subject yourself to the scrutiny with which you placed on other religions or erroneous beliefs. #politics#religion#atheism#constitution#america#conservative#usa#trump#liberal#republican#democrat#science#evolution#technology#secular#secularism#conservatism
