    Washington Post gives Hillary Clinton four Pinocchios for saying “… in Wisconsin, where the best studies that have been done said somewhere between 40 and 80,000 people were turned away from the polls because of the color of their skin…” Hillary Clinton is not a stupid person.However, much of the audience that she targets is stupid, which is why she recently, knowingly said the following lie:“I was the first person who ran for president without the protection of the Voting Rights Act, and I will tell you, it makes a really big difference. And it doesn’t just make a difference...

    I was the first person who ran for president without the protection of the Voting Rights Act, and I will tell you, it makes a really big difference. And it doesnt just make a difference in Alabama and Georgia; it made a difference in Wisconsin, where the best studies that have been done said somewhere between 40 [thousand] and 80,000 people were turned away from the polls because of the color of their skin, because of their age, because of whatever excuse could be made up to stop a fellow American citizen from voting.

    Sunday after receiving The International Unity Award in Selma, Alabama, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton claimed racist and white supremacist views are lifted up in the media and the White House. Clinton said, This is a time my friends when fundamental rights, civic virtue, the freedom of the press, the rule of law, truth, facts and reason are under assault. And make no mistake, we are living through a full-fledged crisis in our democracy. Now there may not be thank God tanks in the streets but whats happening goes to the heart of who we are as a nation.

She's not coming to relive history, but to remind us that the fight for voting rights must continue." says Faye Rose Toure, the founder of the Jubilee.

    SELMA, N.C. A state organization committed to rail safety education has voiced concern about the controversial decision to change the mascot at Selma Middle School. The Johnston County Board of Education voted 5-2 last month to change the mascot at the school from the Vikings to the Railblazers. School officials said the decision is rooted in the schools participation in the Restart program, which allows low-performing schools to adopt charter school-like flexibility, including extending the school day and using funds in ways not designated by the state.

    Maxine Waters just cranked the identity politics up to max. The Democratic California congresswoman delivered an emotional address in Selma, Ala. on Saturday, telling her audience that she will sponsor legislation to provide African Americans with reparations for slavery if Democrats take back the House in this years midterm elections. Waters also took aim at President Trump, criticizing his feud with Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un. This business about whos the biggest, whos the baddest, whos got the biggest gun, Waters said. This president keeps edging that on. You know, hes a bully. He has a bully mentality. The 79-year-old lawmaker...

    In his path to the White House, president-elect Donald Trump won North Carolina and one region where he enjoyed significant support was Johnston County. Last week, Donald Trump made one of the final stops of his campaign trail in at The Farm in Selma. The field was packed with an estimated 15,000 people according to Trump. Many in Selma are now pleased that Trump will be the next president of the United States.

    On the 4th of July, it’s always important to recognize the strength and resolve of the American spirit. At times, it may seem that Hollywood takes that idea for granted but despite that, filmmakers continue to create great patriotic features that remind us about what being an American is all about. With that in mind, here’s a list of five movies — all from the past dozen years—that do a great job in capturing and celebrating American patriots. Miracle (2004): Aside from the 4th of the July, there aren’t that many major events when thousands of people rally around our country and...

    President Obama's weekly remarks Hi, everybody. The right to vote is one of the most fundamental rights of any democracy. Yet for too long, too many of our fellow citizens were denied that right, simply because of the color of their skin. Fifty years ago this week, President Lyndon Johnson signed a law to change that. The Voting Rights Act broke down legal barriers that stood between millions of African Americans and their constitutional right to cast ballot. It was, and still is, one of the greatest victories in our countrys struggle for civil rights.
  • GOP Leader Cracks Door, Slightly, on Voting Rights Act (McCarthy becomes Cantor)

    Last year, House Democrats saw ex-Majority Leader Eric Cantor as a possible (if ultimately disappointing) ally in the fight to rewrite the Voting Rights Act for the 21st century. On Tuesday, Cantors leadership successor, Kevin McCarthy, might have revealed himself as another important potential friend to the effort. The California Republican echoed at a pen-and-pad briefing what fellow GOP lawmakers have said before: Any revision of the landmark 1965 law has to start in the Judiciary Committee a disappointing answer for advocates who know Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte, R-Va., is disinclined to tackle the matter. But McCarthy later said...

    March 7th was the 50th anniversary of "Bloody Sunday," the first attempt by black protesters to march from Selma, Alabama, to Montgomery to demand voting rights. Their march was brutally halted by Alabama state troopers acting under the orders of Gov. George Wallace. The protesters weren't deterred. On March 25, 1965, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. led thousands to the completion of the 54-mile pilgrimage from Selma to Montgomery. Dr. King rightfully described the protest as "a shining moment in the conscience of man." The march solidified support for the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Prior to 1965, there...

    According to Brooklyn Borough President, the spirit of Selma is about adding Muslim holidays to the school calendar. According to Obama, its about replacing black workers with illegal aliens through amnesty. Obama invoked the spirit of Selma to justify his executive amnesty policies Friday in an interview with Sirius XMs Joe Madison. The notion that some kid that was brought here when he was two or three years old might somehow be deported at the age of 20 or 25 even though theyve grown up as American, thats not who we are, Obama said. Thats not true to the spirit...

    When Rudy Giuliani dared to name Frank Marshall Davis (Communist Party card no. 47544) as an influence on a young Obama, liberals ripped their garments and wailed blasphemy! Rudys unpardonable sin reminded them of all sorts of noxious behavior. And in some cases, it reminded liberals of -- what else? -- racism. This weeks race to the bottom, led by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, is proving why Americans are learning to hate politics and the media, stated Chuck Todd on NBCs Meet the Press. Giuliani even used an old racial dog whistle of the Civil Rights era,...
