John James responds to swastika in Senate ad: 'We should have caught this error and we didn't'

(WXYZ) - Michigan's Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, John James, addressed supporters Monday regarding the appearance of a Nazi swastika in his televised Senate campaign ad. 
"I was taught by excellent leaders, the best of which being my mom and dad, to do the right thing – even when it's hard," James is heard saying in Facebook live video posted Monday on the candidate's official page.  
"I need to fess up and admit this was a terrible error on our part," he goes on to say. "We should have caught this error and we didn't – no excuse." 
James and his campaign came under fire Monday when footage on a Senate campaign ad showed a school hallway with the swastika pinned to a school bulletin board. The ad, which has since been pulled from Youtube, shows stock footage of a school hallway. It can be viewed here on
James' Campaign Manager, Tori Sachs, responded in a statement Monday evening saying,
"After becoming aware of the image, John James showed his honor and integrity by holding a public press conference live [] in his campaign office to take responsibility for the error, saying it was something he and his team should have caught before airing. This campaign doesn't need to be lectured by a 43-year career politician on the history of evil. John James is the son of slaves and his family has overcome racism. After John James raised twice as much as Stabenow in the last quarter, cut her lead in half to single digits and defeated her in two debates, Stabenow finally realizes she is in for the political fight of her life."

"Ditch Cocaine Mitch" by Don Blankenship

Mitch McConnell and his family have extensive ties to China. His father-in-law who founded and owns a large Chinese shipping company has given Mitch and his wife millions of dollars over the years.

The company was implicated recently in smuggling cocaine from Colombia to Europe, hidden aboard a company ship carrying foreign coal was $7 million dollars of cocaine and that is why we’ve deemed him “Cocaine Mitch.”

Despite being a career politician for more than three decades, Mitch has become a millionaire while raising our national debt by 20 trillion dollars. The biggest jump in his wealth came from a multi-million dollar gift to his wife, Elaine Chao’s from her father, i.e. Foremost Maritime. The company uses ships chartered in Liberia, not America or China.

Ms. Chao’s father and sister actually joined the board in 2007 and 2008 of something called China State Shipbuilding Corporation, CSSC Holdings, which is a subsidiary of the largest defense contractor in China.

McConnell is so indebted to China that he even co-sponsor a Senate bill to remove human rights reporting requirements from free trade deals. Those requirements were put in place after China’s abuses following the protests for freedom we saw worldwide at Tiananmen Square. (S.2277)

A new book by Peter Schweizer examines how career politician Mitch McConnell used his elected influence and his wife’s family’s policies to get rich while regular Americans lost a trade war. A trade war that has cost millions their jobs and therefore created idleness and despair, which as we know leads to illegal drug use including cocaine. Cocaine overdose deaths in the United States are rising rapidly as a result.

Why is the pope not apologising to Canada's indigenous people?

Like his predecessors, Pope Francis is devoted to the interests of the institution he leads.
The institution in question is, of course, quite old, popular, rich, with subsidiaries and 1.2 billion followers across the globe.
The institution's rules, that the followers must unquestionably abide by, are set out in dogmatic texts, commandments and edicts, including the doctrine that the pope, "acting as supreme teacher … cannot err when he teaches in matters of faith or morals."
