  • Oh No! Another Black Conservative Republican Running For Office

    In the tradition of Sarah Palin, black tea party leader Katrina Pierson is a beautiful God, family, country and Constitution loving conservative Republican. Fearless and outspoken, Pierson’s inspiring life story nukes the Democrats’ mythical Republican War on Women. Sad that I even have to go there, Pierson’s skin-color derails the Democrats’ deplorable narrative that Republican equals racist.

    The Right Scoop ^ | 1/25/2014 | Caleb Howe
    Hahn laughs as soon as West cites himself as an example of how the tea party is not racist. Because as we’ve learned from folks like Melissa Harris-Perry, conservatives are racist by definition, so therefore black conservatives are merely Uncle Toms. It is typical of lily-white elitist east coast liberals like Hahn to look down their noses at Col. West. They care nothing for his military service, his civilian record of service, his having been elected to office, his cogent representation of conservative philosophy, or any part of Colonel West, the human being. All they see is a black man...

    Some 25 years ago I changed my life. A visit inside a church opened my eyes to the destructive life I was living, financed by welfare checks generously provided by American taxpayers. I got off welfare, went to work, got politically active and became a Republican. I didn’t become a Republican because of what the party looked like. I became a Republican because of what the party stood for. Individual freedom, traditional values, with a view that government’s role is to protect our freedom at home and abroad.

    You and I are politically well informed. But there are many Americans like my family who do not follow politics as closely as we do. Their political views are shaped by liberal media bias hit pieces, spin, and sound bites. 99.9 % of my family are Democrats because Marcus family traditional taught us the Democrats are "for the little guy." Republicans are "rich white racists." Liberal media and the Democratic Party jointly support and promote this silly, simple lie, which still wins the Democrats 95% of the black vote.

    By now, much has been written regarding the Republican endorsement of Tom Emmer for governor of Minnesota, not to mention the extraordinary grace of opponent Marty Seifert. The latter's leadership, even in defeat, galvanized delegates into a unified front. This stood in stark contrast to the Democrats, whose gubernatorial endorsement battle had, one week prior, dragged into the dark of night. Remarkable as that story is, there are others from the convention which, while lower in profile, are no less noteworthy.

    The Tea Party movement is entering a critical phase during which its relevance and longevity will be tested. Crucial to pushing through this adolescence will be cementing the movement's purpose and methodology. These are illusive goals for a group largely adverse to organization. Implicit in the populist ideals underlying the movement is a sense that every individual ought to have a voice. However, as evidenced by a Tea Party meeting which occurred this morning in north Minneapolis, providing a platform for every voice is not necessarily productive.Donald Allen, a black conservative activist and chief editor of the Independent Business News...

    “Sex doesn’t cause AIDS – a virus does.” AIDS was first identified in the United States in 1981. Since then, “an estimated 1,051,875 people have been diagnosed with AIDS in America.” Close to 600,000 of them have died. In 1983, there were only 1,500 cases of AIDS diagnosed in America, but the rate of infection was doubling every month. The gay rights community, however, was engaged in a campaign of intimidation against those who would label the disease “sexually transmitted.” For example, the Stonewall Gay Democratic Club in San Francisco was one of the more powerful political groups in the...

    Because so many things seem to get lost among the political minutia when laws and policies are created, it's wise to look back to find the "original intent" that began the process. When it comes to the original intent of liberal abortion and birth control policies, the motivations of their proponents can be downright shocking. Most people probably think the original intent behind the movement to legalize abortion, for instance, was to give women control of their bodies. It was all about a woman's right to choose, right? Wrong. To understand the abortion lobby's original intent, one must start with...

  • Is the Voting Rights Act a Smokescreen?

    The Real Issue Is Turnout - Ralph Conner All American citizens of good will can see the value in encouraging Black voters to break through their voting lethargy and apathy--without using allegations of institutionalized racism as an excuse for self-disenfranchisement, failing to vote when you have the rock-solid right to do so. Last April, in my own bid for re-election as mayor of Maywood, Illinois, turnout was less than 25 percent in a community that is 90 percent African-American. It disturbs me deeply to know only one-quarter of the eligible voters in my community chose to exercise this essential right....

    No matter how many times our opponents dub themselves the “benevolent”, “tolerant”, and “compassionate” ones, their words speak for themselves. Unlike the media, in their ignorance, they claim pays me handsomely to write these pieces, I publish emails of those who disagree with my opinions. The following are some of the hundreds of messages sent after my Monday morning appearance on “CNN Daybreak.” These are aparently representative of the thinking of some of the news outlet’s audience…. Please note: Again, I did not say “all.”
  • Republicans Make a Difference: A Two-Party System Has Better Ideas for West Virginia

    WHAT a difference an election makes. After November, Republicans wound up with 45 members in the Legislature. That falls short of a majority by roughly 24 seats. But there is enough of a Republican minority to promote a real competition of political ideas, a development long overdue in West Virginia. To stop bad legislation now, all it takes is 19 Democrats crossing the aisle in the House or five Democrats doing so in the Senate. This gives the party leverage in the Legislature that it has not had in decades. Of more importance, it gives the people a greater say...

    CLARION, Pa. - Lynn Swann, the Hall of Fame former wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers, stood before a nearly all-white Republican crowd at the Holiday Inn here recently and denounced Pennsylvania's Democratic governor, Edward G. Rendell, for failing to reduce property taxes. Then, without prompting, Mr. Swann suddenly turned the subject to race - his own. "I'm not here to be the poster child for the Republican Party, to say they're being inclusive by running an African-American," said Mr. Swann, 54. "That's not why I'm here. I'm here to win." Still, to many prominent Republicans, Mr. Swann, a commentator...

    Combs gets seat on panel Monday, June 06, 2005 By Brian Wheeler A prominent Jackson Republican has landed a seat on an advisory group to the national party. A Republican National Committee spokesperson said the Rev. Ira Combs will sit on the new RNC African-American Advisory Committee. As the name indicates, the group of more than 50 people from around the country will offer counsel on how to build support among minority voters. Members are not compensated. "For a guy from Jackson that is involved in politics, this would be a pretty good opportunity to get involved in a committee...
  • A shaky filibuster deal

    The filibuster isn't a noble institution, it's a tactic - and one with a checkered past, at that. Liberals decried it in the 1960s when segregationist Southern Democrats used it to thwart the will of the majority to block civil rights legislation. But at least that tawdry application of the filibuster was consistent with its purpose in the United States Senate as a procedure to force legislative compromise.

    Posted on Wed, May. 25, 2005 Cosby's challenge: His social message is right, but he should preach beyond the choir BY E.R. SHIPP New York Daily News (KRT) - In a nation that so values freedom of speech, one would think that frank talk would also be valued. But consider the consequences in three settings. First, New York City mayoral candidate Fernando Ferrer violated what should be Rule No. 1 of politics: Be clear and consistent. He commented on the 1999 killing of African immigrant Amadou Diallo by four trigger-happy Bronx cops. To a cop audience, he said the shooting...

    Opportunity. That was the key word in remarks by Ken Mehlman, chairman of the Republican National Committee, who was in Harrisburg yesterday. He appeared at a fund-raising rally for City Councilman Otto Banks, who is seeking re-election. A longtime Democrat, Banks recently switched to the GOP. Mehlman said his visit here was part of an ongoing effort to support minority candidates across the country, and to recruit minorities into the Republican party. Those objectives can be accomplished through "education reform, [supporting] small-businesses, home-ownership initiatives," Mehlman said. He said the Republican agenda is "designed to help working Americans." Mehlman said the...

    OFF TO THE RACES Butler's Chances Black Minister From Detroit May Prove To Be A GOP Exception By Charlie Cook Tuesday, May 3, 2005 Central to the job of a political analyst is to assess the partisanship and voting patterns of a state or congressional district, the strengths and weaknesses of the incumbent if one is running and of the other candidates in the field, the availability of resources and any other circumstances that might become important in the contest, and then weigh the importance of each of these factors. After almost three decades of watching congressional elections, I have...

    Roland G. Fryer Jr. is 27 years old and he is an assistant professor of economics at Harvard and he is black. Yes, 27 is young to be any kind of professor anywhere. But after what might charitably be called a slow start in the scholarly life, Fryer has been in a big hurry to catch up. He was in fact only 25 when he went on the job market, gaining offers from -- well, just about everywhere. He abruptly ended his job search by accepting an invitation to join the Society of Fellows at Harvard, one of academia's most...
