7 out of 10 Top Cities For Black Owned Businesses In States Led By GOP Governors

What do Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, and Tennessee have in common? Seven of the “Top 10 Cities for Black-Owned Small Businesses” are located in these states – according to The Root –and they’re all governed by Republicans.

The other two states that make the list – Missouri and Virginia – have state governments represented by a Democrat governor and a GOP-controlled legislature. Three of the states have present or former governors running for the Republican presidential nomination.

While the Obama Administration’s Small Business Association (SBA) loans to black businesses sits an embarrassing 1.7%,  Republicans continue to lead the way in encouraging business-friendly environments, promoting job growth, and increasing economic opportunity for all.

Schedule Shows Clinton’s State Dept. Breeding Ground for Cronyism

hillary

When Hillary wasn’t busy covering up her secret email server, she made time for meetings with corporate lobbyists, influential Democrat fundraisers, and of course, foreign donors to the Clinton Foundation.

According to an AP analysis of portions of Clinton’s schedule during her time at State, Clinton frequently met with top corporate leaders and political supporters as she set the stage for a 2016 run:

Her availability to luminaries from politics, business and charity shows the extent to which her office became a sounding board for their interests. And her ties with so many familiar faces from those intersecting worlds were complicated by their lucrative financial largess and political support over the years — even during her State Department tenure — to her campaigns, her husband’s and to her family’s foundation.

The report is consistent with a pattern that has continually emerged in Clinton’s State Department, where the lines between official business and personal and political interests have been nonexistent.  ​

Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin, who now serves as vice chair of Clinton’s presidential campaign, exemplifies the overlap between Hillary’s political pursuits, Foundation ties, and government duties. Abedin was granted “special government employee” status in 2012, which allowed her to work as a paid advisor to the Clinton Foundation, serve as an aide to Hillary, and take on private clients. Abedin also had an account on Clinton’s secret server.

Then there’s the fact that Clinton blatantly ignored conflicts of interests posed by millions in foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation while serving as the nation’s top diplomat. These donations not only violated the ethics agreement she made with the Obama administration, but went unreported until recently.

All together, it is clear that Hillary Clinton used her office as a revolving door for special interests that benefitted her and compromised her priorities as Secretary of State.

The American people cannot trust someone who has proven she is for sale to the highest bidder in the Oval Office.
