    Members of the Congressional Black Caucus held a press conference on Thursday urging senators on the judiciary committee to reject the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court. In the news conference lawmakers and civil rights activists argued that Kavanaugh would weaken provisions of the Voting Rights Act and be a general threat to civil rights on the Court. Not enough is known about Kavanaugh's potential views on issues including civil rights cases due to the Trump administration's unwillingness to release more documents related to his tenure as a White House lawyer. "We stand in solidarity...
  • Unearthed: Another Bonkers Anti-Semitic Rant From Louis Farrakhan

    Before you watch this insanity, which made the social media rounds this week, may I remind you that Senator Barack Obama met privately with, and complimented, this man at an event coordinated by the Congressional Black Caucus -- a disgrace that was deliberately hidden from voters until Obama was safely out of office?  May I also remind you that numerous CBC members have courted this man's support, including the current deputy DNC Chairman, who hasn't been truthful about the nature of that relationship?  As I've previously argued, "minister" Louis Farrakhan is the Left's version of David Duke, in that...
  • Louis Farrakhan: 'Jews are my enemy,' 'white folks are going down'

    Rev. Louis Farrakhan gave a Saviours Day 2018 Address on Sunday in which he declared that "the powerful Jews are my enemy," and "white folks are going down." The Chicago speech went widely unnoticed at first, but garnered more traction on Wednesday when excerpts were tweeted out. CNN anchor Jake Tapper, for example, tweeted out a thread of the keynote speech with some of his quotes, and said Farrakhan was more dangerous than other "alt-reich" leaders because he has a much larger following and elected officials meet with him openly. Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate...

    There are few surprises here. Just the inevitable descent of the Democrats into the fever swamps of hatred and extremism. According to the anti-Israel group behind the Congressional letter, The effort to gather signatories to the letter was supported by a coalition of human rights organizations including U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, CODEPINK, Jewish Voice for Peace, and American Muslims for Palestine. American Muslims for Palestine has been linked to Hamas. Jewish Voice for Peace, which is neither Jewish nor peaceful, is a BDS group. This is what the Dems are mainstreaming. 32 Democrats in Congress signed on to a...
  • Why is the Black Caucus Trying to Oust Trump

    The Congressional Black Caucus (a group of 48) has become the front running group in calls for impeaching President Trump. With media reporting near constantly that the president is a racist, it is to be expected that a few folk fall for it, but for elected politicians to bury into this seems a tad ridiculous. Is there a deeper motive behind their strengthening opposition? The black unemployment rate has dropped to a level that (if it continues) will eventually be at the same rate as the rest of America. Jobs are coming back to the U.S., the economy is looking...

    Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those words) gave a wonderful State of the Union Address Tuesday night. The speech was filled with soaring rhetoric about American unity, American greatness and Americas renewed place of leadership in the world. So naturally the Democrats hated it. The speech talked about the creation of 2.4 million new jobs since Trump took office, record low unemployment and the booming stock market. So naturally the Democrats hated it. The speech talked about our flag and what it...

    Appearing on this evenings Hardball, Rep. Karen Bass, a Democrat and leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, twice accused Republican Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue of flat-out lying by saying that they didnt hear President Trump refer to various countries as sholes. Bass then took things an ugly step further, insinuating that President Trump might have bribed the two senators in some way. Said Bass: I think that theyre flat-out lying. And maybe theyre getting something from the President for it. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The Office of House Employment Counsel brokered a settlement in 2006 over allegations that Rep. Gregory Meeks fired a staffer in retaliation for reporting that she was sexually assaulted at a business tied to a campaign contributor, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned. Andrea Payne, then a congressional aide in the New York Democrats Queens office, filed a complaint with the Office of Compliance, and Meeks fired her weeks later. He admitted that Paynes termination did not have to do with the quality of her work, according to her lawsuit.

    Perhaps Democrats should take Han Solos advice from Episode IV after last nights big electoral win: Nice shooting, kid, dont get cocky. Instead, Rep.

In a floor speech, the Texas Democrat pledged to force a vote on his articles of impeachment for Donald Trump in time to drop the lump of coal in the presidents Christmas stocking (via The Hill):

    American Thinker.com ^ | October 11, 2017 | Lloyd Marcus
    Flipping through my TV channels, I stumbled upon the 2017 Congressional Black Caucus Annual Prayer Breakfast on the Word Network; the world's largest black religious channel. This year's theme was, "And Still I Rise". Folks, I thought, "Oh my gosh, these people have no shame." This breakfast was all about exploiting black's Christian heritage to deceive them for the purpose of furthering Leftists' anti-Christian agenda. Every musical performance praised Jesus. Leftists despise Jesus, aggressively seeking to ban the God of Christianity from the public square. Several of the all-Democrat speakers quoted the Bible to strengthen their political deceptions. The truth...

    GOP-Hating Rep. John Lewis Didnt Pay His Real Estate Taxes Instead of finding fault with the new president, maybe Rep. John Lewis should worry about paying his real estate taxes. The well-paid congressman didnt pay taxes on his nearly $1 million posh D.C. townhouse on Capital Hill. Rep. Lewis said Donald Trump isnt a legitimate president, same thing he said about George Bush, but hes not a legitimate taxpayer. Public records show he avoided paying property taxes on his DC townhouse at 219 3rd Street SE on Capitol Hill, Got News reported. Click the link for Got News to see...

    For almost eight years, the members of the Congressional Black Caucus existed in the shadow of the first black president. They praised President Barack Obamas achievements while at the same time pushing him to do more for their constituents who overwhelmingly supported his history-making campaign and administration. But with Obama set to leave the White House on Jan. 20, black lawmakers in the House and Senate are recalculating and reassessing their place in Washington. And realizing theyre regaining the limelight as the most visible and powerful African-American politicians in the nations capital. President-elect Donald Trump will face a larger and...

    Racism. It’s the go-to for liberals. Every institution of American life is touched by it according to the racialists. Well, almost every one. Somehow, the industry that kills, disproportionately, black human beings for a profit isn’t racist. It’s “reproductive justice”! Enter Congressman Sean Duffy, a Republican from Wisconsin. On the House floor he gave a powerfully disturbing speech about the alarming levels of abortion in the black community and wondering why the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) has been silent. But they haven’t been silent. They’ve been complicit. The CBC, like every other black-led liberal “civil rights” group, is pro-abortion. The...

    WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama has had the spotlight to himself at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual awards dinner during all but one of his nearly seven years in office. But on Saturday, with the campaign to succeed him in full swing, Obama was certain to face some competition for attention at the gathering sponsored by a major Democratic Party constituency group. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton planned to attend the dinner at Washington's convention center to mingle, but not give a speech.
