  • Two Democrats Blame Rep. Pelosi For Past Electoral Losses; Want Her Out Of Party’s Leadership

    CBS SF Bay Area ^ | 04/08/2015 | CBS SF
    WASHINGTON D.C. (CBS SF)– Two Democratic stalwarts from Massachusetts are suggesting that Rep. Nancy Pelosi should leave the party’s leadership team in Congress after big electoral loses last year and in 2010. Reps. Michael Capuano and Stephen Lynch made the statements on WGBH’s “Greater Boston,” with Lynch predicting outright that “Nancy Pelosi will not lead us back into the majority.” Asked by host Jim Braude if the answer to the question whether Pelosi “should go?” is “yes,” Lynch said, “Right.” Capuano was also asked if the 75-year-old Pelosi should quit leadership ranks. He said: “That, or she should change, one...

    White children will be outnumbered by minority kids in the United States in just five years, new Census Bureau projections reveal. This is the result of an ongoing trend of declining birth among white Americans and a baby boom among immigrant groups, as well as a surge in immigration. By the year 2020, 50.2 percent of all children in the US are expected to be non-white, according to the Census. By 2044, whites will be outnumbered by minorities. The Census study, released this week, predicts that by year 2060, nearly 20 percent of the population will be foreign born -...

    Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid faces a tough task as his conference transitions to the Senate minority next year. The Nevada Democrat is leading a divided party smarting from a midterm election that saw Senate Democrats lose eight seats. It includes a number of centrists who could be eager to cut deals with the new GOP majority, particularly after watching several centrist incumbents fall in the 2014 midterms. But Reid must also lead liberals hoping to give Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who many Democrats viewed as an obstructionist over the last several years, a taste of his own...

    Recently I wrote about the prospects of Democrats facing a long minority in the House of Representatives. The same is true of the Senate. Democrats have tried to put a brave face on the 2014 results, noting that in 2016 the Senate map will favor their party, when the Senate Class of 2010 – the Republican landslide midterm – face voters. A review of those races, however, suggests that some states may in a good year be able to gain three seats – Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – but the other imagined “tough race” for Republicans would require a Democrat...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is said to be losing the strong support she has enjoyed among her Democrats in the United States House of Representatives. Yet, the 74-year-old politician powerhouse from California has made it well known to her fellow-Democratic lawmakers that she intends on keeping her position in Washington, D.C., as the House Minority Leader. As she expresses her desire to stay in power, Politico is reporting on Thursday that there are no Democrats preparing to challenge Pelosi publicly even though there are those who wish she would be replaced.

    The Republican Leadership may be doing just fine with the Wall Street crowd and extremists who oppose birth control, but for the majority of ordinary Americans its actions over the last several weeks have rapidly begun to seal its fate as a minority party. First, let's start with the fact that the Republican Party is -- at this very moment -- a distinctly minority party in American politics. The Gallup poll reports that the number of Americans identifying as Republicans has fallen to its lowest level in the quarter century it has been tracking the number: 25 percent.
  • Latino leaders urge Barack Obama: Hire us

    When top Hispanic lawmakers met with President Barack Obama earlier this year, the first issue they brought up wasn’t immigration reform. Their ask: Hire more Latinos. And they haven’t let up, requesting meetings and pressing Obama and White House officials to make progress on diversifying the administration. They want a progress report by the end of the year. The push is part of a broader change in strategy for Hispanic leaders. The movement built up its power as the fastest growing Democratic voting bloc in the country, one Obama himself relied on in both of his presidential campaigns.

    In the time Barack Obama has been President of the United States the public debt of the country has more than doubled. Using the U.S. Treasury’s Monthly Statement of the Public Debt our friend Terence P. Jeffrey of CNSNews calculates the public debt of the federal government has climbed by 106 percent while President Barack Obama has been in office, increasing from $5,749,916,000,000 at the end of January 2009 to $11,825,322,000,000 at the end of January 2014. How could this happen if Republicans, allegedly the Party of fiscal discipline, have been in the majority in the House since the 2010...

    Republicans and Democrats can debate which party has most abused the option, and which has been more hypocritical in changing its mind about the filibuster once it went from the majority to the minority or the reverse. Neither side has acted with selfless regard for the will of the people or the proper functioning of government. The change adopted by the Senate has been dubbed the "nuclear option," as though it were unimaginably destructive. But all it destroys is the capacity of the minority party to frustrate the operation of the legislative branch. And it applies only to executive and...

    For the past two Sundays, hundreds of Pakistanis of all faiths have formed human chains in front of churches during mass – first in Karachi, then in Lahore. This solidarity movement was launched in reaction to the terrorist attack that killed 81 worshippers at a church in Peshawar, making it the deadliest ever perpetrated against the country’s Christian minority. Militant groups linked to the Pakistani Taliban said they carried out the September 22 bomb attack in response to US-led drone strikes. Christians have been targeted for their faith before, but previous attacks have usually taken the form of mob violence...

    A French court on Wednesday rejected claims that police identity checks on 13 people from minority groups were racist, saying officers didn’t overstep any legal boundaries. … The French ruling comes amid a public furor over stop and frisk policies of the New York Police Department. But in that case, being closely watched here, a judge has ruled against NYPD practices said to discriminate against blacks and Hispanics. Anti-racism groups say that non-white French—particularly blacks or those of Arab origin—face routine discrimination that diminishes their chances of finding jobs, getting into nightclubs and carving out a place for themselves in...

While President Obama publicly celebrated the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a dream” speech last week, his administration took action behind the scenes in Louisiana that was a complete rejection of King’s dream. The Justice Department has challenged my state in court for having the temerity to start a scholarship program that frees low-income minority children from failing schools. In other words, Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder would rip children out of their schools and handcuff them to the failing schools they previously attended. And, in the ultimate...

    When confronted with the Republican Party’s poor standing among minority communities, GOP politicians have usually taken one of two approaches: claim these communities constitute “natural conservative constituencies” or advocate a broad change in policy or ideology to attract minority voters. Neither one of these tactics has been effective, for various reasons–chief among those reasons is that the communities under consideration are usually not “natural conservative constituencies.” Take Hispanics, for example. It is often noted by GOP politicians that Hispanic immigrants are hard-working, family-oriented strivers who tend to be religious. That may be true, but polls showed that while Mitt Romney...

    The U.S. Postal Service's decision to eliminate Saturday delivery could disproportionally hurt minority groups, according to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the ranking member on the House Oversight Committee. "You're talking about just this reduction … from six days to five days will cut anywhere from 25,000 to 30,000 employees. And with regard to Asian, African-Americans, and Hispanics, they comprise about 40 percent of the Postal Service employees," Cummings told Melissa Harris-Perry on MSNBC Friday night. "So it's logical to believe if they were to lose that 30,000 jobs, easily 40 percent of them would be African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asian-Americans." Cummings...

Alan Ray, the former administrator who filed diversity reports during Warren's tenure, distances the university from any responsibility for erroneously listing her as a Native American.

Majority-minority is a legal term used to describe a U.S. state that has a racial composition of less than 50 percent white. The Census Bureau defines individuals who are considered 'white' as non-Hispanics who have family origins in Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa.

    WASHINGTON -- Is an arrest in a barroom brawl 20 years ago a job disqualifier? Not necessarily, the government said Wednesday in new guidelines on how employers can avoid running afoul of laws prohibiting job discrimination. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's updated policy on criminal background checks is part of an effort to rein in practices that can limit job opportunities for minorities that have higher arrest and conviction rates than whites. But some employers say the new policy -- approved in a 4-1 vote -- could make it more cumbersome and expensive to conduct background checks. Companies see the...

    The numbers are in: the white population is moribund. The latest figures from the 2010 census point to the emergence of a new America to be eventually dominated by minorities, especially Hispanics and Asians, the two fastest-growing ethnic groups in the land. By 2041 minorities will be the new majority. This demographic change is occurring at an even more meteoric pace than previously anticipated. America’s white population dropped from 69.1 percent in 2000 to 63.7 in 2010, while the minority population grew from 30.9 percent in 2000 to 36.3 percent in 2010.

    Two polls out today produced some bad numbers for Barack Obama, although Gallup’s news may be overrated. They report a decline in support for Obama across all ethnic groups, with the slippage among blacks and Hispanics the big headline. Relatively speaking, though, it’s hardly an opening for the GOP: Though majorities of blacks (85%) and Hispanics (54%) continue to approve of the job Barack Obama is doing as president, his ratings among these groups slipped in March and have set or tied new lows. His approval rating among whites, at 39%, remains above where it was in the latter part...

    One in five mothers in America have children with different fathers, a new study shows. Researchers found that the trend was higher in minority groups and mothers with low income and education backgrounds. The data was taken over a 27-year period from nearly 4,000 U.S. women who had been interviewed more than 20 times. The study's author Cassandra Dorius said of the one in five figure: 'To put it in perspective, this is similar to the number of American adults with a college degree. It's pervasive.'
  • Longtime Rep. Jane Harman to Quit Congress (CA-36)

    Longtime Rep. Jane Harman of California is quitting Congress to lead the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Fox News has learned. Two senior House Democratic officials confirmed that Harman has informed Democratic leaders, including Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., of her plans to retire. The Wilson Center, whose current head is former Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Ind., is expected to announce Harman's new gig Tuesday. The Woodrow Wilson Center would not speak to specifics about Harman but Sharon Coleman McCarter, vice president of outreach and communications, said the board is meeting Tuesday and "will make an announcement on our new...

    As you know, America’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day was observed on Monday with wall to wall news coverage across the nation. That day should be a day in which we celebrate how far we’ve come in seeing Dr. King’s dream come true and the goodness of this great nation that fought itself to overcome injustices of the past and now stands united with true opportunities for every willing member of society. Sadly, that is not the case. Dr. King might be appalled to see what is now being done in his honor. Instead of Americans embracing unity with...
  • WHY IS A MINORITY A MINORITY?

    Latinos are now America’s largest minority. I have one question.Why? No, not the numbers. I understand about the birth rate and the immigration. I know that there are 37 million Latinos in America and 36 million blacks and that there are more Latinos than blacks. The numbers are easy. What I don’t understand is why Latinos are a “minority.” Italians aren’t. Germans aren’t. Poles aren’t. Why are Latinos? Why has one group immigrating to this country from a non-English background been partitioned into minority status while others have merely learned the language and the culture and fit in? What’s different...

    Recent student protests against tuition increases in the U.K. and California demonstrate that such upticks invoke strong reactions in student communities and can quickly spiral out of control. For two years President Obama and Congressional Democrats have pushed federal policies that separate low-income and minority students from quality education. It is only a matter of time before the breadth of these cuts becomes part of the national dialogue and minority students notice — and erupt. In March 2009, the President terminated the Opportunity Scholarship Program – school vouchers providing educational lifelines for 3,700 African-American students in the nation’s capital. In...

    Foreclosures, plant closings, offshored jobs, underwater mortgages, miserable rates of unemployment, stagnating incomes: Is there any end to the woes of the struggling American middle? Apparently not, because now comes news of a trend guaranteeing trouble ahead for the more than half of the nation that make up the moderately educated and moderately earning middle — even if the economy improves. That seismic shift, outlined in a new report from the National Marriage Project and the Institute for American Values, is towards more divorce, more out of wedlock births and, ipso facto, fewer kids with a hopeful future. Family breakdown,...

    "When the Founding Fathers created this nation, they designated it a republic rather than a democracy. They did so because a republic is fixed and tends toward stability over time, whereas a democracy, which is always in flux, is prone to violent dissolution at any moment. In fact, many of them referred to democracy as “mob rule,” and wanted to avoid it like the plague for fear that it could provide a faction the opportunity to access to the levers of political power and change the course of the nation for the worse in a relatively short period of time."...

    Democrats searching for good news amid the rubble of Tuesday's midterm election results can look to Latinos and African Americans, two groups of voters that stayed with the party in large numbers. But that, in a sense, is like taking comfort in that fact that as your house is falling down around you, it isn't also on fire. The Democratic Party was overwhelmingly rejected by whites, independents and seniors. Perhaps most troubling to Democrats was that increasing numbers of women also turned toward the Republican Party. Young voters, so crucial to President Obama's historic victories two years ago, showed up...
