    Leslie Wimes, the president of the Democratic African-American women's caucus, joins MSNBC's Hallie Jackson to discuss the Clinton campaign being in "panic mode" about low voter enthusiasm in the black community. WIMES: When I said that in September that the enthusiasm level for African-Americans as far as Hillary Clinton's campaign was not there, I was right. They were wrong. They didn't want anyone to know they were in panic mode. HALLIE JACKSON, MSNBC: There is nothing she can do? WIMES: Oh, no. It's over now as far as the African-American community is concerned. She had time back then to get...

    Joe Scarborough was probably just trying to make the point that Donald Trump is very unpopular with black voters, but he wound up saying something that some might view as insulting to African-Americans. Interviewing Al Sharpton on today’s Morning Joe, he asked about the Rev’s view that Hillary has not been doing enough to appeal to black voters. As Sharpton prefaced his remarks by observing that Hillary is way ahead of Trump among black voters, Scarborough interjected “my dog’s way ahead of Trump among black voters.” Watch the video and note how Scarborough trails off at the end, possibly realizing...

    It's all about him. Then again, anything is better than making it about her. “Vote for Hillary because it’s very exciting to think of electing her. She would be such a great president.” Oh. Sorry. Just kidding. If you’re looking for an argument to motivate Democrats to get out and vote, you don’t want to use the one offered above, because your objective is not to get everyone a) laughing at you; or b) groaning with disgust. As Democrats grow increasingly desperate amidst the dramatic shift in the polls toward Donald Trump, they have to offer some sort of rationale...

    Donald Trump is gaining support among African-American voters — whose enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton is eroding, a tracking poll released Saturday revealed. Trump saw a 16.5 percentage-point increase in backing from African-American voters in a Los Angeles Times/University of Southern California tracking poll, up from 3.1 percent on Sept. 10 to 19.6 percent through Friday.

    Last week was a very bad week for Hillary Clinton. She saw doctors overwhelmingly say her health is an issue in the campaign; she took off her now requisite few days to rest and slandered Donald Trump’s supporters, calling half of them a basket of “deplorables.” These disasters could not be covered up by her lapdog media and they have damaged her. And there were two more major developments that could meld into a serious stumbling block for Hillary. Clinton spoke before a Black Baptist convention and was only able to fill 20% of the seats placed in the room....

    In 2002, John Thune lost a South Dakota US Senate race by 524 votes after being ahead by 3,729 votes at 3:41 a.m. with no counties containing Indian reservations having reported. Then a “suspicious” batch of votes for incumbent Democrat Tim Johnson came in from the state’s Indian reservations. They amounted to 4253 votes and Thune lost by a handful of votes. In 2004 Thune tackled an even bigger target when he challenged Democrat Senator Leader Tom Daschle. This time things were different. This time Thune reached out to Russell Means, the leader of the American Indian Movement and a...

    No one on either side could have imagined the level of support Donald Trump has gotten from Black voters. Because they are mostly Democrats their defection to Trump in this zero sum game is extremely significant. Black support for Trump first surfaced a year ago when a SurveyUSA national poll reported that Trump was getting 25% of the Black vote. After the laughter died down, the pollsters didn’t even bother with this claim because they reasoned it was a waste of time and money since Trump would not get the Republican nomination anyway. As the Republican primaries went along and...

    The fakers and pretenders can say what they will about how Donald Trump has little or no support among Black voters, but the facts just don’t support their lies. Trump is doing the Black voter outreach the Republican Establishment always said its candidates should do, but never did. Trump is talking directly to Black prisoners of Democrat, dilapidated, crumbling cities across the country. He is saying things his Black listeners recognize as the truth. When Trump points out the terrible life Blacks are forced to live because of Democrat oppression they are nodding in agreement not plotting his political demise....

    The fake pollsters are in a panic over the terrible support numbers Hillary Clinton isgetting with Black voters. The truth is either being erased and smothered or nuanced into unrecognizable pap. The party line is that Donald Trump gets between 5% and ZERO--yes ZERO--percent of the Black vote and these statements reek of fear and panic. The truth is found in a growing number of honest polls which show Trump getting between 20% and 32% of the Black vote – yes 32%.

Speaking at a rally in Dimondale, Michigan, an overwhelmingly white suburb outside of Lansing, the GOP nominee argued that Democrats, including his rival Hillary Clinton, have taken advantage of African-American voters and taken their votes for granted. "Tonight, I'm asking for the vote of every single African-American citizen in this country who wants to see a better future," Trump told the crowd.

Of course, for this administration a “conversation” on race means listen to what we say and worship at the altar of racial narratives which bear no resemblance to reality.

    Black votes matter. If Republicans could get 20 percent of black votes, the Democrats would be ruined. This is highly unlikely, given the approach used by Republicans. However, the point is that Democrats must not only continue to get nine-tenths of black votes, they also need to get a high turnout of black voters on election day. People who expected the election of President Barack Obama to lead to racial healing and a post-racial society failed to take account of the political reality that racial healing and a post-racial society would, at a minimum, reduce black voter turnout.

At this point you would believe that these people might think before speaking, but panic is a very strong emotion so these naysayers need to have their nose rubbed in reality to get them to shut up.

    Don’t let Hillary Clinton’s victory in South Carolina and on Super Tuesday fool you. Her support from the black community has been strong in the primary race so far. Nonetheless, this community’s current loyalty is based on an outdated ideological model. The politics of grievance alone will no longer work. She is simply a more substantive candidate than Senator Bernie Sanders. Unlike her husband—famously dubbed the “first black president” by novelist Toni Morrison, Secretary Clinton does not appear to have the monolithic black support that Democratic frontrunners often take for granted. A surprising number of high profile black leaders have...

    Amid all the media analyses of the prospects of each of the candidates in both political parties, there is remarkably little discussion of the validity -- or lack of validity -- of the arguments these candidates are using. It is as if what matters this election year is the fate of a relative handful of people-- currently seven -- running for their respective parties' nominations. Meanwhile, the fate of the 320 million Americans who are going to be affected by the outcome of this year's election fades into the background. The fact that Hillary Clinton's election prospects, for example, depend...

    The 2012 presidential election delivered a wake-up call to the Republican Party to improve communication with minorities. The realization that the American presidency can now be won with support of less than 40 percent of white voters -- Obama won with just 39 percent -- was a bombshell. When Ronald Reagan was elected president in November 1980, 88 percent of the electorate was white. In 2012, when Barack Obama was elected, this was down to 72 percent. Pew Research projects that in 2016 the percentage of white voters will be down to 69 percent. This trend will continue, as America...

While I rarely turn to NPR for my news, I ran across an interesting interview this month conducted by Karen Grigsby Bates, speaking with one black gun...

    The Obama era represents a peak in black voters’ identification with the Democratic Party, which will have to fight to retain their loyalty. While President Obama made history by becoming the first black president in 2008, black voters made history four years later. In 2012, for the first time ever, black voter turnout nationally surpassed that of all other groups. But that is unlikely to happen in tomorrow’s election. An even bigger question to consider, however, is whether it will ever happen again. Black voter enthusiasm has been at an all-time high during the era of the first black president,...

    Donald Trump's highly publicized meeting with a group of black pastors was met immediately with reactions ranging from skepticism to condemnation. Critics were immediately justified when numerous individuals on Trump's "endorsement" list spoke out to clarify that they had only agreed to meet with the real estate mogul turned presidential candidate, rather than agreeing to endorse him. Those who did lend their names to the Trump candidacy were predictably branded sellouts. But what was missed in all the name calling and outrage was the overall necessity of Trump's move, even if it was poorly executed. Trump recognizes what Romney did...

    There have been at least two surveys showing Donald Trump getting between 25% (nationwide) and 13% (Florida) of the Black vote in a general election against Hillary Clinton. In a very detailed October survey of Florida voters, Clinton gets 82% of the Black vote and Trump gets 13%; with 5% undecided. This means Clinton’s current solid Black vote in Florida is just 77% but can go up to only 82%, and Trump already has the potential to get 18%. Clinton is in trouble with Blacks now and things can potentially get much worse. Trump, however, is doing better than he...

    The Kentucky senator gets a lot of attention for his outreach efforts. But he’s not the only Republican looking to win black voters in the post-Obama era. If Republicans really care about winning in 2016, then they may want to pay more attention to the voters who haven’t ever voted Republican. With each passing election the Republican electorate has gotten older and whiter, while America is getting younger and browner. That presents a problem for what is increasingly becoming the Gray Old Party. The only real choice for Republicans is to win a meaningful share of brown or black voters....

    Back in the day, when hunting was the major source of food, hunters often used stalking horses as a means of sneaking up on their quarry. They would walk on the opposite side of the horse until they were close enough to place a good shot on whatever they were hunting. A stalking horse not only concealed them but also, if their target was an armed man and they were discovered, would take the first shot. That’s what blacks are to liberals and progressives in their efforts to transform America — stalking horses.

The agenda listed matched (frighteningly) realities of an American culture  which has gone from a God-fearing and industrious nation into one ripe for misery and plunder.  Like so many Progressives, Earl Ofari Hutchinson used the lead-up to the midterm elections to warn in the "Huffington Post" that A Republican Wave Will Further Sink Black America and throughout the year the Democratic Party has made ceaseless attempts to paint conservatives and...

    Beware of the low flying pigs as you watch hell freeze over; a group of Black Democrats in St. Louis County has endorsed White Republican Rick Stream in his race for County Executive. The group known as the Fannie Lou Hamer Coalition (FLHC), named for the Voting Rights giant who worked to give Blacks the right to vote in Mississippi during the summer of 1965, has finally awakened to the fact that Democrats do not care about them and never have. They point to the continuing failure of the county’s schools to educate Black children and the Democrat’s shameless pandering...

    It may be too soon to label it a trend and there is insufficient data to confirm it, but President Obama and his party may be losing their iron grip on their most loyal and enthusiastic voting bloc: African-Americans. Last Friday in Chicago, a group of black residents of the city's South Side, staged a protest against the violent shootings that are becoming as commonplace as White Sox games at Cellular Field. It wasn't just the protest that should concern the administration and Democrats; it was the language used by some of the protesters, many of whom at the time...

    First Union Missionary Baptist Church, Meridian, MS is where we learned how Thad Cochran’s corrupt Senatorial re-election campaign upped the black vote by 30,000 over the last election with blatant lies and “walking around money” to narrowly beat opponent Chris McDaniel in last month’s Republican primary. The folks there are a bit upset with church member Rev. Stevie Fielder, the guy who broke the news. The media erroneously reported he was an Associate Pastor. No one I know blames the congregation for yielding to endless propaganda and sleazy enticements. (1) These very nice folks are upset with themselves for being...

    When Democrat President Lyndon Johnson signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, he was doing so very reluctantly. He knew that the 1960 census had shown what he correctly considered a shift to the Right in the South that would make it difficult, if not impossible, for Democrats to win the White House in the future. Being the Machiavellian sneak that he was, Johnson probably looked back at his support for Operation Wetback which deported about 1.5 million Mexicans who were in the Southwest illegally as a lost opportunity to restock the Democrat voter pool. With that chance lost, Johnson and...

    Incumbent Republican Senator Thad Cochran’s successful game plan, which drove his run-off victory over Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel for Mississippi’s Republican Senate nomination, was unconventional. But most incredible was the success of this game plan – to reach out to liberal black churches and get Democrat black voters to turn out and vote for Cochran – despite being executed in broad daylight. Soon after Cochran lost to McDaniel in the primary, necessitating a run-off because McDaniel fell short of getting 50 percent of the vote, papers reported the intent of Cochran’s team to turn out black Democrats to overcome...

    Mississippi NAACP, said that Cochran could thank black voters by supporting efforts to re-establish protections in the Voting Rights Act that the Supreme Court struck down last year. "Our advocacy towards his office is to support amending the Voting Rights Act, free of any conditions such as voter ID," Johnson said. "I think this is an opportunity for him to show some reciprocity for African-Americans providing a strong level of support for him." Johnson said that there are currently no Republicans who support re-establishing the formula eliminated by the Supreme Court last year, though Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and a...

    What’s all the crowing about regarding North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis’ victory in the North Carolina Republican Senate primary this week? I’m talking about the crowing that this is some kind of defeat for the Tea Party. Sure, Greg Brannon was the Tea Party candidate and endorsed by Rand Paul. And, yes, the Republican establishment big names – including, of course, Mr. Establishment, Karl Rove - came out and backed Tillis with endorsements and lots of money. But let’s not get carried away, folks. Tillis is an experienced politician with solid limited government, pro-family, pro-life credentials. And Rand Paul...

    It was disappointing the other day to see President Barack Obama embracing the vulgar race hustler Al Sharpton. President Obama once eloquently confronted race in a memorable speech in Philadelphia in 2008. That speech was remarkable and honest and, to borrow a favorite word of the political left that still fawns over him, it was nuanced. But there was nothing particularly remarkable about Obama standing next to the preening Sharpton, speaking in New York to his National Action Network. Except that Obama expertly used a message of victimization to begin energizing black voters, who provide the electoral foundation for the...

    People in the media and academia are mostly leftists hellbent on growing government and controlling our lives. Black people, their politicians and civil rights organizations have become unwitting accomplices. The leftist pretense of concern for the well-being of black people confers upon them an aura of moral superiority and, as such, gives more credibility to their calls for increasing government control over our lives. Ordinary black people have been sold on the importance of electing blacks to high public office. After centuries of black people having been barred from high elected office, no decent American can have anything against their...

    Michael Sam appears to be a fine young man. But, no, he isn't the first openly gay male U.S. athlete to play in a major sport. And "brave"? Can we please dispense with the absurd Jackie Robinson comparisons? Wake me when a black collegiate pro prospect "comes out" as a Republican. A starting senior on the University of Missouri football team, Sam looks like a mid-round draft pick in the NFL. He recently "came out" to his teammates, many of whom said they already knew or suspected. Neither teammates nor coaches had an issue. Most normal people ask, "Who cares?"...
