The Civil War ended in 1865. The DNC has had 154 years to eradicate the Confederacy, yet now we have the neo-Confederate, White Nationalist Trump Administration.
Reparations are regularly kicked around by the DNC during an election year in a disingenuous attempt to secure the black vote. No matter how often the idea is brought up, Democratic presidents and Congressional leaders table it as soon as they win an election. We will no longer accept political irrelevancy by blindly following the DNC, Tipnation.NYC
On Monday July 29, 2019 , several senior staffers at the DNC quit their posts in protest at the DNC abjectly failing to make good on its campaign promise of promoting racial diversity within the organization. It turns out that the DNC are way more interested in rewarding party loyalty rather than honoring that promise.
“There is not one person of color — black or brown, that I’m aware of — at any position of authority or decision-making in the DCCC [Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee],”Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), a former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus told HuffPost. “It is shocking and something needs to be done about it.”
Despite the inevitable hand-wringing of the DNC in the aftermath of the resignations, one still has to ask as to how this is even a thing in the post-Obama Democratic Party of the twenty-first century? How does the DNC expect non-white America to vote for their candidates when they are unwilling to diversify their own ranks?
The fight against racism in the US is a binary one. That is to say that you are either part of the problem or part of the solution. There absolutely is no middle ground – even though the DNC continually appears to try and occupy that area. There is a German saying, “ if there’s a Nazi at the table and 10 other people sitting there talking to him, you got a table with 11 Nazis.” You either fight racism, or you stand with the White Supremacists.
With the DNC still of this ridiculously outdated racist mind-set, they do not deserve the support of one non-white American or true progressive in the US. They are simply Republican-lite –essentially the same product but with some superficial changes.
Now is the time to vote for our best interests. In lieu of reparations, TIP political party considers Andrew Yang's Universal Basic Income of $1000.00 per month, 12 months of the year, and universal single payer healthcare for all Americans payment in full. We need to go on the offensive politically. Various discriminated against and disenfranchised minority groups have received reparations, so why not Black Americans? We need to send the DNC and moderate politicians a clear message. They will lose to Trump in 2020 if reparations / Universal Basic Income are not specifically included in the party's platform. The DNC can't win without the black vote.
Our ancestors dealt with men a thousand times worse than Trump who had the political power to enslave, rape, mutilate and lynch. We'll survive four more years of Trump.
The question is can American democracy survive in the meantime?
Racial inequality remains rampant in America.
Eric Garner shouted out 11 times that he couldn't breathe before he was choked to death for simply selling loose cigarettes. That was in what many believe to be one of the bluest cities in America, New York City. His cold-blooded executioner got off scot-free.
The Trump Administration—Attorney General William Barr—refused to press Violation of Civil Rights charges against a police officer who used the power of his position to brutally murder an unarmed black man. A guilty decision should undoubtedly have been handed down in NYC five years ago—but the US Justice Department had a chance to right that wrong. Instead, they defended the neo-fascist, racist, jack-booted thugs in the NYPD.
Conservatives will defend the police by saying racists are just “a few bad apples”--but they have conveniently forgotten the rest of the saying. “A few bad apples spoil the bunch.
America, on top of that, we must delve into the reason why Eric was selling loose cigarettes in the first place. Like millions of black men in America, Eric Garner had a police record for petty offenses. A criminal record—even for crimes that were necessary to feed and clothe your family shuts you out of the job market.
This is why mass incarceration is so incendiary - it punishes the person not only with a long stint in prison, it also robs the person of any opportunity to change their ways after they are released. They have limited job, housing, and educational opportunities. Jail sentences limit your opportunity to be the breadwinner for your family and fully contributing citizen. While some have excelled after being released from prison, that's the exception not the norm. Cory Booker wants prisoners' sentences to get a ‘Second Look’ after ten years. But after ten years of being locked up in this automated world, what would they come home to?
Sanders is proposing a criminal justice overhaul that aims to cut the nation’s prison population in half, end mandatory minimum sentencing, ban private prisons and legalize marijuana. He says the current system does not fairly treat people of color, addicts or the mentally ill.
“We have a system that imprisons and destroys the lives of millions of people,” Sanders told The Associated Press before the planned released of his proposal Sunday. “It’s racist in disproportionately affecting the African American and Latino communities, and it’s a system that needs fundamental change.”
We agree the system needs fundamental change in the front end and when people are release from prison. Nowhere in Bernie Sanders plan do he address how millions of newly release prisoners will be successful re-integrated into society.
If Eric Garner was receiving Universal Basic Income he would not have to sell loose cigarettes. When people are released from prison, Universal Basic Income will be their lifeline back into society. Let's support Andrew Yang's Universal Basic Income and end prison's revolving door policy. This is how the Yang Administration can safely reintergate 1.2 million fellow Americans currently doing time for non-violence drug offenses and other low level crimes. This is how we return millions of fathers and mothers back to their families.
All prisoners including lifers will have the opportunity to train in Smoke in Peace Ex-Felons Foundation Cannabis Training program. Just like our ancestors tended tobacco in Mississippi during slavery, modern day prisoners will be trained to supplement America's cannabis growers. When released with Smoke in Peace certificate in hand, these ex-felons will become the linchpins of the cannabis industry.
Cannabis has the potential to become the fastest growing agricultural industry in the world. American history was built on the backs of black slaves working the fields for white masters. Today, black Americans are imprisoned at record rates for non-violent drug offenses— cannabis will be legalized equitable, Black Americans will be given the opportunity to legally join the fastest growing industry in the country.
We must become Afro-futurists architects and show our fellow Americans our blueprint of the shared economy era and what Black America demand in order to usher in the Blazins20s for all Americans. Unbridled capitalism shattered the American Dream, Trump will singlehandly shatter democracy if reparations / Universal Basic Income are not specifically included in the party platform. The DNC can't win without the black vote.
The same old same old means nothing for Black America.
Black America, the classic definition of insanity is doing the very same thing over and over again, but expecting different results each time. The two-party oscillation model of politics, Democrats to Republicans to Democrats to Republicans and so on ad nauseum, is completely done.
We don't have a clearly defined black agenda because every single black politician and the DNC, rely on corporate vultures for funding and absolutely no corporate entity has your well-being in their mission statement. Rather, these modern day Robber Barons are legally required to maximize their profits—they would rather the masses suffer than limit their growth potential. We have private companies building prisons. We have private companies that will cut corners to save a buck—even if the environmental consequences are disastrous—just look at the Flint and Newark Water Crisis.
Joe Biden is politics as usual. His praise of segregationist Senators was, at best, incredibly tone deaf and, more likely, a remnant of his past. During the first Democratic debate, he trotted out the tired trope of “let the states decide” when confronted by Kamala Harris about his fight against bussing. Many black leaders have concluded that no matter which party is in power, black people still lose.
Black Americans are still summarily executed by jack-booted thugs who believe they are judge, jury, and executioner. Little about our criminal justice system has changed since the 1969 execution of Fred Hampton. Unarmed black men are still gunned down on their own property. Black activists, like Sandra Bland, still end up dead while in police custody. What good is the status quo if it still ends with racist cops murdering Black Americans?
The question we must ask ourselves is: CAN a formerly enslaved people be integrated into their former slave masters political party and thrive?....no.
Today is the day we rise up and take political and economic control of our future and our loved ones’ futures. We are a group of veterans, historians and social tourism activists who have started the Travel in Peace (TIP) Political Party "America's First Self-Funding CryptoStrong Political Party"—it’s the Progressive counterpoint to the Republican Tea Party. We simply want all people to Travel in Peace no matter their race, culture, gender or sexual orientation.
Economics is also key.
But we aren’t just about politics - economics is also key. Consequently, we understand the economic power of travel and the over 100 billion dollars that a shared economy entails.
That’s why we created Afrobnb, Womenunitedbnb, Tipcruise.NYC and TipTours, collectively known as TipNation.NYC, to assist in funding TIP Party and to end corporate bribery of our politicians. We can no longer allow “campaign contributions” to dictate policy.
Recently released documents “Moscow Mitch” McConnell show that, during a bipartisan effort to hold tobacco companies responsible for their decades of lying, the tobacco company RJ Reynolds considered McConnell a “special friend”. This “special friend” to the tobacco industry stood up in front of the Republican caucus and said that anyone who voted against the bill would surely receive “campaign contributions” from the tobacco industry. Mitch McConnell has been bought and paid for. “Moscow Mitch” has been compromised by moneyed interests for decades. We must end the practice of legal bribery in our politics.
Massive corporations are using technology to rape and pillage our people in the Caribbean. All inclusive resorts don't even have the decency to pay their labor a living wage! We cannot allow All-Inclusive and Airbnb technological advances to recreate the slave-labor conditions of the past. All-inclusive resorts are modern day forms of colonization, in which resorts use an unfair amount of the country’s resources while 80% of resort profits get sent back to the resort’s country of origin. Employees are paid low wages, and more often than not, tourists never leave the resorts, so the local economy never benefits.
America refuses to reduce it's carbon footprint, even though climate change is happening rapidly. The first places who will be effected by climate change are majority non-white, the Caribbean Islands will face increasingly intense hurricanes on a regular basis, African and Middle Eastern countries will face epidemic levels of water shortages—all the while, white America will again profit from the suffering of others. Yet the DNC has repeatedly refused to stage a Presidential debate on the issue. Yet again, the Democratic Party has continued to perpetuate the systemic environmental racism that infects America.
Millions of people in the Caribbean are living under the threat of a category 5 hurricane, Travel in Peace Nation will take the lead in restoring the tourism ecosystems of Caribbean Islands decimated by climate change induced hurricanes. TIP Nation will begin a series of Humanity First Cruises to bring tourism dollars to devastated economies.
After Andrew Yang is elected President, TIP Political Party will propose the establishment of a Climate Change Force operated by the US Military, this Force will replace the ineffective FEMA. When a hurricane is eminent, we will deploy resources to evacuate everyone out of harms way as we can. We will also propose establishing an International Refugee Basic Income Fund. The G7 countries--countries who gained their wealth through slavery and colonization will be asked to contribute to the fund as a form of reparations. This will help people to be able to stay in their homes, it will prevent a mass exodus from environmentally devastated countries, and it will improve the safety of these economically devastated countries.
Neo-colonialism must not be allowed to take hold! Afrobnb.com engineers' -bridge into the peer to peer Openbazaar software will effectively eliminate any financial incentive for Airbnb or any for profit BnBmodel to operate in any majority black destination. At the heart of Afrobnb.com is a political movement rooted in Social Tourism. Social tourism is the extension of tourism benefits to disadvantaged people who otherwise could not afford to travel. Our version benefits both the traveler and the BnB host community. No tour operator in the world safely delivers you deeper into Afro-centric culture, Tipsnipersquad our with in-house security team TIP the bad guys. The BnB Liberation Movement will put hotel lobbyists and politicians on notice. We will primary any politician who will, after 400 years, attempt to put technological chains around our hosts. Your house is your own, just like your body—and you should be able to do with it what you PLEASE!
Cannabis has the potential to become the fastest growing agricultural industry in the world. SmokeinpeaceUSA our cannabis vacation division will enjoy a first-movers advantage in the global cannabis tourism marketplace. When Andrew Yang is elected, we will have a seat at the table to ensure that the people who have suffered most will now benefit the most.
We have a competitive advantage due to our entrepreneurial founder's 20 years of operating and creating tours—along with his unique connection with the Alaskan and Californian tourism industries, a strong background in California cannabis and wine tours, and 10 years spent traveling the world with the US Air Force.
Our strategy is to become the voice of the anti-Trump social movement, unifying individual efforts to create a formidable voice and become the first brand to monetize a social movement. The traditional travel industry is one of the last industries not disrupted by technology. Our founder, a veteran tour operator, has re-imagined the Airbnb Model in order to not only disrupt the hotel and travel industry, but to also disrupt the corrupt politics of modern day America. Our model disrupts the disruptor and hold IPO's hostage.
Technology has already disrupted both travel and politics—we want to take that to the next level together. Travel is a trillion dollar industry, the BnB and rideshare model is valued at over $100 billion dollars and cannabis tourism is expected to also be a multi-billion dollar industry.
Millennials have surpassed Baby Boomers as the nation’s largest living generation, according to population estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau. Millennials, defined as those aged 18-34 in 2015, now number 90 million, far surpassing the 74.9 million Baby Boomers (ages 51-69). As the youngest generation with disposable income, they have secured their status as leaders in travel and tourism.
We believe that young voters are ready to embrace a new political party. A party that stands for progressive ideas, social movements, and global travel. We believe young voters want an entirely self-funding cryptostrong political party—one which effectively eliminate lobbyists from bribing our politicians. TIP Political Party will be the first political party to embrace the internet and shared economic age. Blockchain visionaries will create travel platforms not yet imagined.
TIP Political Party, Tiptravelcoin, YANG and our handpicked presidential dream team will ensure our brand survives and that we will be able to leave our children wealth and pave the road to black privilege worldwide. Yang will do the Math.
This is your opportunity to get involved and protect the lives and well-being of people in America and all across the world! We are looking for partners who are ready to go to political war and to officially usher in the “Shared Economy Era” and “Blazin20s”, and in doing so, shut down Trumpism and better the lives of millions in America and around the world.
Only true political and economic power will fundamentally stop our people from being exploited, persecuted and killed in cold blood.
The founding fathers stacked the deck against us. However, there was no way for them to know that the Internet age would unravel their perfect union. Let's not walk or run—let's race to become the party of the future, a party that will weaponize, monetize and mechanize millions of cyber warriors and be free from the talons of corporate vultures.
154 years ago our ancestors left their masters physical plantation and unknowingly migrated to their insidious political plantation. Mass incarceration was the brainchild of Biden signed into law by Bill Clinton.
Over 50 years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr wrote, “I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Councilor or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.”
Black America- Andrew Yang, this is our SEASON, The DNC can't win without the Black Vote and if the DNC don't include Andrew Yang's Universal Basic Income/Reparations it will be perpetual winter for democracy in Trumpnation.
Now, the Democratic Party is working to elect a “White Moderate” who opposed bussing and praised segregationists.
Today, we are 45 million strong in the U.S. and 1.4 billion strong worldwide. We must unshackle ourselves from the “White Moderate” Democrats, they are not our allies and will always sell us down the river as soon as they secure our votes.
Today we unveiled the blueprint for a prosperous future not just for Black America but for All Americans. The creation of Tip Political Party, TipTravelCoin. endorsement of Andrew Yang's 1k freedom dividend and introduction of our Presidential Dream team will be the sparked need to ignite a progressive political revolution and democracy saving grace.
Afrobnb, SmokeinPeaceUSA and Tipcruise.NYC will lay the groundwork in building a multi-billion operation. An operation where our children can imagine visiting the four corners of the world. But most importantly, TipTravelcoin cryptocurrency, will be our safe guard when/if paper money collapses. They burnt down Black Wall Street in 1921, but we will be the only ones to blame if we don't create an AfrobnbBlockChain Nation. This vision of money, power and respect for not only Black America but for black people worldwide can become a reality not through wishing but through action. Marcus Garvey's vision re-imagined using today's technology.
Throughout history, political parties either evolve or perish. After losing to Trump, the unscrupulous handling of Andrew Yang, the loss of two Supreme Court justices, not having the political courage to impeach Trump, refusing to debate climate change, watching our young die and Puerto Rico suffer, leaving 800,000 Dreamers in limbo, and not fully embracing cannabis legalization to reduce mass incarceration and generate revenue, we will no longer blindly follow the DNC off the cliff to political irrelevance. We are done fighting a cyber-war with WWII and Biden's Tactic. Today, fellow progressives, we declare ourselves corporations with the formation of TIP Political Party. America's first self funding cyptostrong Political Party.
You can review our vision at tipnation.org and if you are interested in being part of the inner circle of this generation’s cultural war room, please contact us.
Black America, don't sleep on Yang's $1000 per month, it's not only Reparations, it's seed money for us to create our version of Wakanda in America, Africa or Brazil. Rise up and let's get this PARTY started, let's show the world a new Nation is rising, TRAVEL IN PEACE NATION, Yang will do the Math.
Millennials and Gen Z, there are 155 million of you eligible to vote in 2020. Let's be absolutely clear, there is an enormous difference between a democrat from Mississippi and a Brooklyn Democrat. In NYC you are exposed to the incredible wealth inequality on a daily basis. You walk by stores like Chanel, Prada, Saks Fifth Ave, and the list continues. You see people at nightclubs like 1 Oak and Up and Down putting their 50k tab for one night of partying on their black card.
In contrast, everyday, you walk by the homeless begging for a buck on the street or you enter a subway car and the stench of the homeless overwhelms you. But in the next subway car you find a homeless person has made that car their temporary shelter with their 4 grocery carts of personal possession.
We will no longer blindly follow Mississippi or moderate democrats. The beauty of Andrew Yang's freedom dividend is that it has the power to heal century old wounds and help prepare every American for life changing technological advances. It has the power to heal the moral conscious of an entire nation.
We'll pay for it by rescinding Trump's 1.5 Trillion dollar tax cut for the ultra-wealthy, we will increase the corporate tax rate, implement a federal tax on revenue from cannabis and hemp-related products and introduce a V.A.T Tax, reduce the prison population by the 1.2 million people unjustly incarcerated for nonviolent drug and other low-level offenses, and by cutting the bloated military budget. The same people who cut the 2.4 trillion check for the Afghanistan and Iraq wars will make a monthly direct deposit of $1000 to you.
Democrats had a window of opportunity to fix immigration and the housing crisis when they were in power, but they chose to bail out Wall Street, Now look at the evil happening at the southern border and evicted. The Democrats had the opportunity to legalize cannabis nationwide to generate revenue and stop mass incarcerations of mostly black and brown Americans, but they enacted tougher laws. They passed on gun control legislation. Both completely blue New York and New Jersey failed to legalize cannabis, while Illinois legalized equitably.
When Nancy Pelosi boasted that AOC's squad had no support, she clearly meant they had no support from the mega rich donors who pay bribes under the cover of “lobbying” and “free speech”.
Politicians like Moscow Mitch are the most insidious hypocrites in America. On one hand they pass laws to subsidize corporate profits (and their own), while cutting food stamps for the poor with the other. The government has all the money in the world to subsidize the ultra-wealthy. But making sure a single mother and her child can afford food, healthcare, and a home is “too expensive”.
This is the difference in a Mississippi Democrat and a Brooklyn Democrat, we don't want a handout, we will not sell our soul to the highest bidder. We are confident that with the support of Andrew Yang and our presidential dream team, we can build a party that is weaponized, monetized, mechanized with millions of cyber warriors and free of corporate vultures.
Clinton's loss to Trump is a wake-up call that the Democratic party as we know it is dead. This is only reinforced by the fact that one of the top Democrats in the House of Representatives, lost to 29-year-old community organizer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Millennials—who now outnumber baby boomers—would rather sit on the sidelines than sell their souls to corporate-sponsored politicians. Democrats must run with fresh, paradigm-shifting progressive ideas, but traditional and centrist Democrats will not give up power without a fight. For example: Secretly taped audio reveals Democratic leadership pressured progressives to leave the race.
That’s why it’s time to get dark money from lobbyists out of politics. Moderate Democrats need to understand that Biden is not the answer. They need to understand that millennials or gen z have no desire to vote for a corporate Republican in a blue tie. Joe Biden is the architect of the mass incarceration of black men, his policies—and the triangulation of Bill Clinton—have led to the highest incarceration rate in the entire world.
We are the Travel in Peace Party, we want all people-- no matter their race, gender or sexual orientation-- to travel in peace. We want to facilitate their travel dreams by making travel affordable to the masses. Corporate greed within the travel industry has made travel almost next to impossible for millions of Americans. No American kid should have to join the military and put their life in jeopardy just to satisfy their wanderlust. No American should have to put their travel dreams on hold until they retire. No parent should have to pay $3600 for a senior class trip to Japan.
Travel is a powerful tool to bring people together and allow them to experience worlds outside their own. It's our mission to expose young adults to various cultures domestically and globally;
"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends."-Maya Angelou
Yang's freedom dividend and global travel is the medicine needed to heal America. Trump's vision of America and the Mississippi & moderate Democrat lack of will to fight back/impeach and just wear out their shoes marching is rooted in the slavery era.
The GOP weaponized and monetized hate for centuries. In order to neutralize Trump's hate, progressives must weaponize and monetize travel and the internet to raise billions of dollars and rally millions of voters to win the White House on our terms.
Trump has his team, the moderate Democrats of the DNC have their team, and Brooklyn Progressives have our presidential dream team.
Black/WHITE America, Millennials and Yang Gang, we have laid out our vision for America, now it's up to you to either embrace your grandma and grandpa's politics and risk becoming an authoritarian republic or embrace an America where everyone gets a piece of the pie under a capitalist travel friendly regime. "Yang will do the Math"
What's good for black America is also good for rural and marginalized America. Moderates remember In 2019, pain is a two way street.
Every major American war has been won because of units like the all-black 54th Regiment during the Civil War, the Harlem Hell fighters and Tuskegee Airmen during WWII. With that, Andrew Yang the ShitholeSquad is reporting for duty. We are a group of battle hardened veterans who watch our comrades in arms die on foreign soil, we would gladly give our lives to stop fascism and save the soul of America. #Yang2020 #YangwilldotheMATH

Marcus Garvey's vision, MLK's dream, Malcolm X's analysis re-imagined using today's technology
Every student of political science, every student of political economy, every student of economics knows that the race can only be saved through a solid industrial foundation; that the race can only be saved through political independence. Take away industry from a race, take away political freedom from a race and you have a slave race.”― Marcus Garvey
"I’m now convinced that the simplest approach will prove to be the most effective — the solution to poverty is to abolish it directly by a now widely discussed measure: the guaranteed income."-MLK
“We won’t organize any black man to be a Democrat or a Republican because both of them have sold us out. Both of them have sold us out; both parties have sold us out. Both parties are racist, and the Democratic Party is more racist than the Republican Party.”-MALCOLM X
