Kardashian effect: White House looks beyond celebrity clemency pleas

WASHINGTON – When Alveda King was invited to the White House last month, the Atlanta pastor and niece of Martin Luther King Jr. brought with her a list of more than 90 names – all federal prison inmates seeking presidential clemency. Last week, another reality television star – Kim Kardashian West – appeared at the White House, with the lawyer for Chris Young, a Tennessee man serving a mandatory life sentence for drug trafficking. A loose coalition of activist groups, criminal justice reform advocates and lawyers – all coordinated by the conservative Koch Institute – has been assembling a list of thousands of prisoners they believe are worthy of the president’s constitutional power to pardon crimes and commute sentences. Now, the White House is attempting to instill some discipline to the process as part of what they hope will become a signature piece of Trump’s efforts at criminal justice reform. 

That’s according to participants at a White House meeting last week, in which officials heard from a dozen law professors, advocates and attorneys that the clemency system is broken. Kim Kardashian arrives May 30, 2018, with her attorney Shawn Chapman Holley at the security entrance of the White House. The meeting was convened by Ivanka Trump and Kushner – but neither the president nor the White House lawyers participated. A senior White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss internal White House discussions, said the White House counsel’s office was engaged in the effort and looking at several options for how to overhaul the system. Also attending were law professors Rachel Barkow and Mark Osler, who argued that the president should abolish the Office of the Pardon Attorney, the Justice Department office that has handled pardons and commutations in one form or another since 1865.Obama relied on that office to process more than 20,000 applications through his clemency initiative, an effort to effectively resentence drug offenders serving long minimum sentences for what are now considered more minor drug offenses. 

Trump has taken the opposite approach, granting pardons with no input from the pardon attorney. President Trump pardons Oregon cattle ranchers whose case inspired takeover of wildlife refuge. Trump pardons Dinesh D’Souza – and might do the same for Rod Blagojevich and Martha Stewart.

Bernice and Alveda King: Bridging the political divide

They are at opposite ends of the political spectrum. Doctor Bernice King, the daughter of civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr., backed democratic candidate Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential race. Her cousin, Doctor Alveda King, a prominent conservative activist, voted for GOP contender Donald Trump. The women sat down with FOX 5’s Deidra Dukes for an interview at the King Center in northeast Atlanta to discuss the current political climate. The cousins definitely don’t see eye to eye on most issues, but they have managed to bridge the political divide, and believe it’s possible for Americans to do the same. 

Despite their opposing political views, when it comes to talking politics, they work to find common ground at a time when the country is deeply divided among party lines. The Kings grew up in families where they were taught the importance of unconditional love and forgiveness. As adults, Bernice King explained that the women use Dr. King’s Six Principles of Nonviolence as a guide when tackling controversial issues. They commit to the process no matter how difficult, while making every effort to engage in peaceful and constructive debate said Alveda King. 

In listening to the women it’s clear they share a mutual love and respect for one another despite their differences, in stark contrast to the bitter national political climate. The women believe people must begin to seek and discuss facts, while being open to others viewpoints, instead of having conversations that are simply driven by emotion. As impossible as it may seem, Bernice and Alveda King believe it is possible for the nation to heal, one conversation at a time.

Alveda King Gets Personal, Slams Omarosa for Being Willing to Tell Lies ‘for Money’

Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and friend of President Trump, laid fired White House Aide Omarosa Manigault Newman out flat with a none-to-soft smackdown this week. The problem is, numerous claims in her book of already been disputed or contradicted – often by the very people she claims she got the information from. 

A number of people have also warned the public that Omarosa is a liar, including anti-Trump CNN analyst April Ryan, who used to be friends with the former aide but now says she is willing to do anything and say anything to get ahead. Now King, who knows Omarosa as well, has written the kind of opinion piece you’d never want written about yourself.

Meet Alveda King, The Fox News Contributor Who Blames Natural Disasters On Gay Marriage

King currently serves as the Director of African-American Outreach at the anti-choice organization Priests for Life, and previously served on the boards of multiple conservative organizations, including Heartbeat International, Georgia Right to Life, and Abortion Recovery International. King’s decade plus history of speaking against LGBT and reproductive rights has won her praise among conservative. King’s anti-LGBT extremism is rooted in her radical opposition to reproductive freedom. KING: It is statistically proven that the strongest institution that guarantees procreation and continuity of the generations is marriage between one man and one woman. King’s homophobic extremism has a richer and deeper history. 

King also edited an anti-LGBT book entitled Life at All Costs: An Anthology of Voices from 21st Century Black Prolife Leaders. Her anti-LGBT extremism has put her at odds with MLK’s late wife, Coretta Scott King, who was a vocal proponent of LGBT equality. King has also feuded with the NAACP over its support for marriage equality. On Fox News, King will likely continue her work opposing basic legal protections for LGBT people, especially considering Fox’s ongoing defense of businesses who refuse to serve gay customers. KING: [MLK] is the son of Dr. 

Martin Luther King Jr., my granddaddy, the brother of my father Reverend A.D. Williams King, the uncle of Evangelist Alveda King. So I want to urge you to remember the God of Martin Luther King Jr., the Lord of Martin Luther King Jr. Jesus Christ. Expect to hear a lot more about MLK’s legacy on Fox News, especially when it’s used as a tool to legitimize his niece’s vile and extreme anti-LGBT ideology.

Alveda King: Starbucks Should Stop Funding Planned Parenthood if Serious about Ending Racism

The pro-life niece of Martin Luther King, Jr. said that if Starbucks truly wanted to end racism, it would stop funding Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. Alveda King, who serves as director of Civil Rights for the Unborn at Priests for Life, noted in a column at the Washington Examiner the attempt by Starbucks Tuesday to recover from the appearance of engaging in racist business practices. In one situation, two black men who were sitting in a Philadelphia Starbucks without making a purchase were arrested for trespassing. In her column, King observed to Starbucks the racist roots of Planned Parenthood, beginning with its founder, eugenicist Margaret Sanger. 

Planned Parenthood is not being boycotted for racist business practices. As King noted, a bust of Sanger – who was active with the Ku Klux Klan – sits in the National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution. Sanger, who began the Negro Project in 1939, worked to bring birth control to blacks in an effort to reduce their population. The Negro Project was sold as a solution to poverty and high birth rates among the black community. Starbucks, if you’re really serious about eliminating racism, you will acknowledge that black people, and indeed all human beings, are of one blood and one human race, born and unborn. 

We’d be happy to sit down with you to discuss racial justice over a cup of coffee. As MRC NewsBusters reports, Starbucks is listed as a matching gift company at a Planned Parenthood site.

Evangelist Alveda King: My Reflection after Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Confirmation

The Black Past: Remembered and Reclaimed

Alveda King, a prominent conservative leader, evangelist, and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., was born in Atlanta, Georgia, as the first of five children of Alfred Daniel King and Naomi Barber King on January 22, 1951. Her father worked heavily in the civil rights movement and was a pastor until his own untimely death at the age of thirty-eight, shortly after the assassination of his brother, Martin Luther King Jr. Alveda King was married three times to Eddie Clifford Beal, Jerry Ellis, and Israel Tookes. She is the mother of six children and currently serves as a minister for the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Atlanta and is an advocate for the Pro-Life Movement. 

King grew up in Atlanta and attended public schools there until college. In 1978 King was elected to serve as the representative for the 28th District in the Georgia House of Representatives as a Democrat. In 1984 she ran an unsuccessful campaign for the 5th District seat in the United States House of Representatives as a Democrat. The 5th District is the Atlanta area, and the seat at that time was held by Congressman Wyche Fowler. In recent decades, King’s political party affiliation changed. 

In the 2012 presidential campaign, King voiced support for Herman Cain and in 2016 publicly supported and voted for Donald Trump. For decades, King has been a dedicated member of the Pro-Life movement and spreading the Christian faith across the United States. King is also a published author of several books on issues such as religion, family, and abortion. King produced a CD in 2005, Let Freedom Ring, and has starred in several films.

Alveda King part of Trump’s evangelical inner circle

Dr. Alveda King, who listened to her father preach from a Newnan pulpit when she was a girl, is one of the evangelicals most closely associated with Donald Trump’s White House. Alveda King has made a name for herself by, in part, often taking political stances that are at odds with her generally liberal family. In the first month of the Trump presidency, she was one of those in the presidential entourage when Trump toured the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. Earlier this year, she and a cousin were with Trump when he signed the Martin Luther King Jr. 

National Historical Park Act aboard Air Force One in Atlanta. Trump called Alveda King by name during a dinner in celebration of evangelical leadership. The dinner was held Aug. 27 in the State Dining Room at the White House. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson also was present and was mentioned by the president. Alveda King is the daughter of Dr. 

Alfred Daniel Williams King, who became pastor of Mt. Vernon First Baptist Church in Newnan in 1959 when he was a recent graduate of Morehouse College. He pastored there for a couple of years, then moved on to other pastorates before his death in 1969. His brother, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and their father, Martin Luther King Sr., both took part in services at Mt. 

Vernon during A.D. King’s pastorate there.

FOX News Hires Alveda King, Who Is Anti-Abortion and Anti-Divorce Despite Having Obtained Several of Each Herself

Fox News has signed Alveda King, the niece of civil-rights icon Martin Luther King Jr., as a contributor, Fox president Roger Ailes announced [on Friday]. King will provide regular social and cultural commentary across the network lineup. King is a prominent anti-abortion activist and serves as director of African-American outreach at Priests for Life. You don’t have to do much digging at all to discover that King – who is opposed to abortion and thinks hetero marriages are sacred – has freely obtained both abortions and divorces in the past. She had two abortions and attempted to get a third one. 

When she became pregnant, she says her doctor, without the family’s knowledge, gave her an abortion. When she was pregnant in 1973, she went to Planned Parenthood and got a second abortion. Later, she wanted to get a third abortion, but neither the father nor her grandfather would pay for it. Dr. Alveda C. 

King is the daughter of the late slain civil rights activist Rev. A.D. King. A.D. King drowned at home in his own pool after struggling with long periods of depression and alcoholism. 

It’s anybody’s guess why Ms. King would turn her father’s accidental drowning – or possible suicide – into something of a civil-rights milestone, but I’m sure her version of events has done nothing to impede her marketability.

Martin Luther King Jr.’s Niece: ‘My Uncle Would Have Been Very Pro-Life’

Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece says her uncle’s legacy as a civil rights leader has a strong impact on the pro-life movement today. Alveda King, director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, said her uncle’s words show his commitment to respect for life. King, who formerly served in the Georgia state House of Representatives and was a college professor, said she had two abortions herself. His wife accepted that in his stead, because she was like me, she had accepted that agenda without understanding, I believe, but my uncle would have been very pro-life today. The 31st annual March for Life in Washington will take place Jan. 19, and King said her uncle’s crusade for civil rights applies to the pro-life movement today.

‘I have a dream, also’: Alveda King, MLK's niece, brings anti-abortion message to Park Ridge church

In the spirit of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., his niece, Dr. Alveda King, said she has a dream of her own. St. 

Paul of the Cross invited Alveda King to speak at the Park Ridge parish to help kick off its commemoration of Respect Life Month in October. She’s also a former college professor, best-selling author and a former Georgia statehouse representative. In her talk, she drew parallels between the civil rights that her uncle advocated for and her efforts. She referenced scripture that addresses common life questions people may have for abortion and said that while God does give people a choice between the life and death of you or your child, it does not say it’s yours to choose. Lake Zurich resident Pietrina Probst said the presentation was worth sitting in on. 

Probst sat watching the presentation with her mother, and she said that she’s previously seen Alveda King talk on news programs. During the question-and-answer session after her presentation, one member of the audience asked whether Alveda King had been uninvited to speak at a college graduation ceremony because of her message. She said it does happen and she tries to look past that. She said she doesn’t feel her stance on abortion is a divisive viewpoint that should separate people of different races. Megann Horstead is a freelance reporter for Pioneer Press.

Alveda King: “‘President Trump Turns Out to Be a Samson!’ Alveda King Asks for Prayer after ‘Hot Meeting’ in the White House”

I’m happy to call Dr. Alveda King a personal friend. She knows what God has told her to do and she’s taken some major heat for it. Please read this article from Alveda King about her controversial meeting at the White House. Being a part of the group present for an update on President Trump’s prison reform agenda has caused a firestorm in many circles, to say the least. 

At the meeting on August 1, the President focused on prison reform and urban initiatives. The session was very encouraging as we received updates on Executive Orders regarding prison reform, the job market and job readiness, aide to foreign nations, life and more… President Trump was very interactive with those around the table. Appoint conservative jurists to the Supreme Court and federal appeals courts. At moment she could see nothing with her eyes which fall. 

It’s been a week since the meeting at the White House. People have been very supportive or very hateful to those of us who attended the meeting with POTUS. I’m back now, asking for your prayers, and praying for you. Visit our webstore and check out Alveda King’s book by Elijah List Publications: America Return to God: www. We ask only that you keep Elijah List website, email contact info, and author contact information intact.
