    President Trump on Friday said his presumptive Democratic challenger Joe Biden “is no longer worthy of the Black Vote,” after the former vice president made comments contrasting African American and Latino diversity. “After yesterday’s statement, Sleepy Joe Biden is no longer worthy of the Black Vote!” Trump tweeted Friday morning. Earlier Friday, Trump tweeted: “Sleepy Joe Biden just lost the Black Vote. This statement is a disaster from which there is no recovery!” The president then deleted the tweet and replaced it with the new one. In both tweets, the president was referring to Biden’s remarks during an interview that...
  • More Proof Biden is Taking the Black Vote for Granted

    05/23/2020 1:17:06 PM PDT · by jazusamo · 20 replies ^ | May 23, 2020 | Bronson Stocking
    Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden landed in some hot water on Friday after making it very clear that he's fully taking the black vote for granted in November, should he receive his party's nomination. “If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black," Biden said during an interview on The Breakfast Club radio show Friday morning. In his subsequent apology , Biden said, "I've never, never, ever taken the African American community for granted." Oh, but he did, in the very same interview, nonetheless. The former Delaware senator made the false claim...

    State Rep. Vernon Jones bucked his party Tuesday and endorsed President Donald Trump, making him the first state elected Democratic official in Georgia to back the Republican’s bid for a second term. A polarizing figure in Georgia politics, the DeKalb County legislator told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he was not switching parties but that he views Trump as a transformative figure who has helped African American voters, military veterans and farmers with his policies. “It’s very simple to me. President Trump’s handling of the economy, his support for historically black colleges and his criminal justice initiatives drew me to endorse...
  • Black Voters on Democrat Racist Politicians: Nothing to See Here!

    Black voters voting behavior is a perplexing dynamic. Their unwavering support of Democrat politicians and the liberal agenda that creates an illusion of caring about their plight of living life at the bottom is stunning. But this didn’t happen overnight. It’s been decades of head in the sand mentality that has cost black voters dearly. Recall former Democrat Senator Robert Byrd, who rose to a leadership position as a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Byrd filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act. That reality didn’t stop former President Obama, who had said upon learning of Byrd’s passing that the Senate...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden won the Mississippi primary on Tuesday, the latest in his string of victories in the deep south, where black voters have turned out in big numbers to support his campaign. News outlets called the victory for Biden over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) as soon as polls closed. Biden’s final margin of victory is not known yet, but polls showed him up by 50 points heading into Election Day, so he’ll likely win a strong majority of the 36 delegates up for grabs. Sanders cancelled a planned event in Mississippi last week, deciding instead that his...

    The Trump campaign is investing more money and resources in an attempt to attract African-American voters than any Republican presidential campaign in recent memory. The drive includes highly visible television advertising, including an $11 million Super Bowl commercial, along with ad purchases in local black newspapers and on radio stations; “Black Voices for Trump”; storefronts in key battleground states; and a sustained social media campaign directed at black voters whose consumer, religious and demographic profiles suggest potential support, including on such issues as immigration, abortion, gender roles and gay rights. For Trump, the effort became all the more crucial as...

    CNN’s Keith Boykin lashed out at black Trump supporter and former NFL safety Jack Brewer as an “Uncle Tom” Thursday night. During a Thursday Black History Month event held at the White House, a day that included an address to hundreds of black leaders, President Trump also held a roundtable in the Cabinet Room with about two dozen black political and religious leaders. It was here the former Minnesota Viking said to the president, “I gotta say this because it’s black history month: Man, you the first black president.” Making the moment even more interesting is the fact that Brewer...

    Former football safety Jack Brewer called President Donald Trump America’s “first black president” during a Black History Month roundtable at the White House on Thursday. “Mr. President, I don’t mean to interrupt, but I’ve got to say this because it’s Black History Month, man, you are the first black president,” Brewer declared. “I’ve been a Democrat all my life but I’m not a Democrat now,” Brewer said. “You’ve changed me. You touched me. And you made my work go to another level. You inspire me. And every time I go into those prisons and I ask my guys how many...

    Great news from the Washington Examiner: President Trump is opening 15 urban campaign field offices in an aggressive bid to improve his performance with black voters, who for decades have been an overwhelmingly Democratic constituency. Sleek and situated in retail shopping districts to generate foot traffic, this unique collection of regional “community centers” is a critical component of the Trump campaign’s multimillion-dollar strategy to double in 2020 the 8% support the president received from black voters nearly four years ago. Where will these “community centers” be? Five offices are slated for Florida: Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa, and Miami. In North...

    Former President Obama's attorneys say they plan to file a cease-and-desist letter over a pro-Trump group's television ad in South Carolina that attacks former Vice President Joe Biden by using a portion of Obama's book Obama is also demanding that all South Carolina television stations immediately stop running the ad from the Committee to Defend the President, which is aimed at supporting President Trump's reelection bid. The ad uses excerpts from Obama's 1995 memoir, "Dreams from My Father," in an effort to get the attention of black voters in the state. "Joe Biden promised to help our community. It was...

    Yes, in effect, it was, because it was about profiling people based on their race. And the mayor even said that they disproportionately stopped white people too often and minorities too little, and I'm not here to score points. I come at this with a great deal of humility, because we have had a lot of issues, especially when it comes to racial justice and policing in my own community. And I come to this with some humility because I'm conscious of the fact that there’s seven white people on this stage talking about racial justice.

    RUSH: That’s the story about Mayor Pete. Here’s the headline. It’s in BizPac Review. “Buttigieg Bolts After He’s Booed and Shouted Down at Minimum-Wage Rally: ‘Pete can’t be our president!’” The attendees were shouting. By the way, somebody on YouTube — and I didn’t bother asking this to be rolled off because it’s a video you really need to see. The audio is kind of difficult, but what it is: Apparently Mayor Pete is lifting practically verbatim Obama platitudes and using them as his own. Somebody has gone back and put them together, talking at the same time, which is...

    U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders has widened his lead for the Democratic presidential nomination and overtaken Joe Biden in support among African Americans - a voting bloc that until now has largely favored the former vice president, according to a Reuters/Ipsos national poll released on Tuesday. Among all registered Democrats and independents, 26% said they would vote for Sanders, while 15% said they were backing Bloomberg and another 15% supported Biden. Senator Elizabeth Warren and former mayor Pete Buttigieg were each supported by 10% of respondents. Another 4% said they would vote for Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and 3% said...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has strengthened his lead in the 2020 Democratic presidential race and surpassed former Vice President Joe Biden in support from African American voters, according to a new poll. The Reuters/Ipsos survey released Tuesday found Sanders's lead stretching into the double digits for the first time, with the senator holding an 11-point advantage in the race and a 3-point edge over Biden among black voters. Overall, 26 percent of surveyed Democrats and Independents said they would vote for Sanders, a self-identified democratic socialist, while Biden and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (D) tied in a...

    The mainstream media will never admit it, but Donald Trump is responsible for the most remarkable economic boom that Black America has ever seen.  For the past three years, this president has worked to ensure that America’s strong and growing economy works for all Americans, not just corporations and wealthy investors — and his efforts are already paying major dividends in our community.  I’ve said this before and I will say it again — the best social program in the world is a good-paying job, not a welfare handout. Thanks to President Trump’s policies — including massive tax cuts...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg “overstated” his partnerships with black-owned businesses in South Carolina as he tries to improve his standing with minority voters, according to a report. The former South Bend mayor wrote in an op-ed last week in The State, a South Carolina newspaper, that his campaign had “proudly partnered with local businesses like Diane’s Kitchen in Chester, Atlantis Restaurant in Moncks Corner and the Fair Deal Grocery on Charleston’s Eastside.” The problem, however, is that two of those businesses denied to ABC News that they had forged any sort of partnership with the candidate.

    The editors of the Washington Post are upset that President Trump pardoned Dinesh D’Souza. They also express concern that Trump might pardon Martha Stewart and Rod Blagojevich. I have no problem with the D’Souza pardon. The Obama administration threw the book at D’Souza for a relatively small campaign finance law offense that, as I understand it, normally results in a slap on the wrist. It did so, in all likelihood, for the same reason the Post is unhappy with the pardon — D’Souza was a strident and effective critic of the Obama administration and of liberalism in general. According to...

    About a month ago, an advertisement popped up on the black gospel radio station The Light 103.9 FM where I live in Durham, North Carolina. It was voiced by a woman who sounded like she was in her mid-50s, with the lilt of an educated urban black Southerner. Although I wasn't consciously listening at first, it caught my attention. It was a political ad, the first I'd heard on the radio this election cycle, and I wondered which candidate was bothering to actively campaign in North Carolina well before the March 3 Super Tuesday primary. Normally, ads on this station...

    The New York Times reported Friday morning that African American workers are seeing their wages rise for the first time after a “decade of stagnation,” further evidence of the strength of the U.S. economy. The Times report came as the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the economy created 225,000 new jobs in January, smashing expectations. Unemployment ticked upward to 3.6% — but that was due to more workers entering the labor force, generating the highest labor force participation rate thus far in the recovery from the Great Recession. Average hourly wage gains also rose slightly year-on-year, to 3.1%....
