    At his first polygraph test to enter the CIA, the future director had a secret. John Brennan on Thursday recalled being asked a standard question for a top security clearance at his early CIA lie detector test: Have you ever worked with or for a group that was dedicated to overthrowing the US? "I froze," Brennan said during a panel discussion about diversity in the intelligence community at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual conference. "This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate,"

    When Obama met with Farrakhan, it was under the auspices of the Congressional Black Caucus. It wasn’t the first or last time that the CBC had been caught in bed with the hate group leader. And CBC members have never been ashamed of their ties to a racist who had praised Hitler as a “great man”. “I’ve been to his home, done meetings, participated in events with him,” Rep. Danny Davis declared. “I don’t regard Louis Farrakhan as an aberration or anything, I regard him as an outstanding human being.” The CBC won’t sanction Rep. Davis for saying that. In...

    Three Democratic congressmen attended a private dinner hosted by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, a new report reveals. Reps. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, Andre Carson of Indiana and Gregory Meeks of New York attended the private dinner, along with Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who leads the black supremacist group Nation of Islam. Iran is the number one state sponsor of terrorism, according to the United States government, which has listed the Islamic Republic as a state sponsor of terror since 1984. Rouhani was in New York for a United Nations meeting and held the dinner party just hours...

    Perhaps the word “swoon” in the headline strikes some of my amigos as unnecessarily hyperbolic?—as typical “click-bait?”Fair enough. Let’s have a closer look at the issue for a more accurate evaluation. Here’s indignant Trump SOTU boycotter Barbara Lee (D-CA) explaining her indignation and boycott:“On January 20th, I will not be celebrating or honoring an incoming president who rode racism, sexism, xenophobia and bigotry to the White House."Now here’s Lee upon “copping a backstage pass” (so to speak) upon one of her frequent red-carpet visits to Cuba to “meet and greet” the jailer and torturer of the most and longest suffering black,...

    Liberal legislators and members of the Congressional Black Caucus were caught-red handed this week; reading and playing video games on their mobile phones while President Trump delivered his first State of the Union address to the American people. Images first surfaced on the internet of Michigan Rep. Brenda Lawrence typing-away on her smart phone as the Commander-in-Chief outlined his vision for 2018 and beyond. Upon further inspection, the photos showed Rep. Lawrence playing popular web-based game Candy Crush in the middle of the address. “That State of the Union is put out an hour in advance so Democrats and Republicans...

    Rep. Maxine Waters calls for a parental advisory when Trump appears on TV Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who appeared on BET Wednesday to lambast President Trump's State of the Union Address, called for a parental advisory each time the president appears on television. “Whenever he appears on TV there should be a disclaimer that says ‘This may be may not be acceptable for children,'” she said. Waters recorded a pre-taped response to Trump’s address, which was broadcast on attorney and political commentator Angela Rye’s BET special. “One speech cannot and does not make Donald Trump presidential. He’s not presidential and...

    Black members of Congress made sure they would be heard last night, even if President Donald Trump was doing all the talking. Members of the CBC (Congressional Black Caucus) wore brightly colored yellow, green, black and red kente cloth accents to President Trump’s first State of the Union address, as a sign of defiance against his “sh*thole* comments about African and Caribbean countries. “The whole idea was to show support for Africa, particularly after the President called Africa and Haiti s-holes,” said Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) in an exclusive interview with theGrio. “We thought it would be important for us...

    Many members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) refused to stand or applaud when President Donald Trump touted the historically low level of black unemployment during his first State of the Union address on Tuesday. Left-wing media, however, gleefully reported a camera shot that showed CBC members grimacing in their seats. “Unemployment claims have hit a 45-year low,” Trump said. “African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded, and Hispanic American unemployment has also reached the lowest levels in history.” Video of the African Kente cloth-clad CBC members sitting and staring unamused filled the internet with breakneck speed.

    It is too late to undo all of the damage to this country caused by President Barack Obama, but it is never too late to finally uncover the truth and ensure that this type of history never repeats itself in America again. In 2005, then U.S. Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) met with the Congressional Black Caucus along with Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan, a certified racist, homophobe and anti-Semite. Obama’s meeting with Farrakhan was photographed by journalist Askia Muhammad. It showed both of them smiling, surrounded by happy members of the Farrakhan entourage, including his son-in-law, two sons...

Maxine Waters, a California Democrat, will speak at the top of a BET News special after Trump delivers the State of the Union, a BET spokesperson told BuzzFeed News. The program, “Angela Rye’s State of the Union,” is part of a broader partnership announced just days ago between the network and the Democratic strategist and political commentator.

    (TriceEdneyWire.com) – It was during a mid-2005 Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) meeting on Capitol Hill when award-winning journalist Askia Muhammad captured one of the most significant photos of his career. Muhammad had doggedly covered then Chicago Sen. Barack Obama since he “first laid eyes on him” at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Now, here was the Senator in a warm conversation with constituent and fellow Chicagoan Minister Louis Farrakhan. As leader of the Nation of Islam, Farrakhan is another star in Black America, but one whose name is synonymous with controversy. Wasting no time, Muhammad snapped the news photo. But...

    Congressman John Lewis (D-GA), the only person alive who spoke during Dr. Martin Luther King’s historic March on Washington, was verbally taunted on a D.C. to Atlanta flight over the weekend. The civil rights legend shared his story on Senator Cory Booker’s new podcast “Lift Every Voice.” “I’m walking down the aisle, and the gentleman said as loud as he could, ‘Trump!” recounted Lewis. “The 77-year-old has been a vocal critic of Trump, refusing to attend the Civil Rights Museum opening in Mississippi if Trump was in attendance and Trump’s State of the Union speech scheduled for January 30.

    Appearing on this evening’s 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 didn’t hear President Trump refer to various countries as “s—holes.” 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 they’re flat-out lying. And maybe they’re getting something from the President for it.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    We didn’t go there, did we? I mean seriously? Did Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), the third ranking member of the House Democratic Caucus, pretty much insinuate that the accusations against Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) shouldn’t be believed because the accusers are white? Conyers is under fire for sexual misconduct. In 2015, he settled a sexual harassment claim to the tune of $27,000 in taxpayer money. Melanie Sloan, a Washington lawyer, claimed to be the subject of verbal abuse by Conyers, even walking into his office to have the Michigan Democrat half-dressed. She has not alleged any sexual harassment, but Deanna...

    Rep. John Conyers, newly facing sexual misconduct charges from former aides, was praised by fellow Rep. Maxine Waters just last month as a champion of women. During an address to organizers of the national Women’s March in which she lashed out at “rape culture” and President Trump, she singled out the Michigan lawmaker for special attention. “You know, there is a member of Congress who has been supportive of women for many, many, many years,” said said in a keynote address to the Women's Convention Sojourner Truth Luncheon in Detroit.“He is quiet, he is confident, he is powerful, but he...

    A leading Democratic congressman settled a wrongful dismissal complaint for more than $27,000 in taxpayer funding after he allegedly fired the staffer because she would not “succumb to [his] sexual advances,” according to a new report. The congressman, Michigan Rep. John Conyers, is described as a serial sexual harasser who would prey on his female staffers in sworn affidavits signed by four of his former staffers. BuzzFeed News first reported the bombshell allegations and accompanying settlement after right-wing blogger Mike Cernovich provided the website with the documents. One former female employee filed a complaint with the Congressional Office Of Compliance...
