  • Checkmate Democrats - Trump to Speak at Young Black Leadership Summit

    America Out Loud ^ | 10/17/18 | Brooke Says
    Ever since Donald Trump asked ‘What the hell do you have to lose’ in reference to inviting black voters to consider him during the 2016 Presidential election, the Democrats have had the vapors – not because they think black voters wouldn’t vote for Trump, but because they were afraid they would. And indeed many did. Not in overwhelming numbers, but Trump did very well, particularly among black men, especially considering the concerted media push to paint him as a racist. And if he or any Republican gets 20% of the black vote, it’s game over for Democrats, which they know,...

    Full Title: His first day on the job, Kavanaugh hired as many black law clerks as Ginsburg has in her entire tenure Justice Brett Kavanaugh has hired a black law clerk for his new chambers at the U.S. Supreme Court, matching Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s record of African-American clerkship hiring during her tenure on the nation’s highest judicial tribunal. With his first clerkship hires, Kavanaugh also set a gender composition record, an apparent attempt to buck the high court’s hiring patterns, which tend to favor white, male graduates of elite law schools. Since joining the high court in 1993, Ginsburg...
  • Black Voters Beginning to Turn Right as Midterms Near

    The Epoch Times ^ | 10/04/18 | MATTHEW VADUM
    Support for President Donald Trump is growing among black Americans, but it’s unclear whether that will translate into enough votes for Republicans to retain control of Congress in the midterm elections in one month’s time. This apparent reversal of fortunes stands in stark contrast to Republicans’ inability in recent decades to attract much support from black voters. Part of the growth could be due to defections from the Democratic side. Former Democrat Brandon Straka’s #WalkAway movement has been encouraging Americans to share their personal stories of disillusionment with the Democratic Party and abandon, or “walk away,” from the party. The...
  • WHAT I SAW GAVE ME A LITTLE HOPE

    I came off the Metro in Washington, DC two days ago and as I was making my way to the escalator to catch my commuter bus, I saw something that gave me a little bit of hope. Ahead of me was a black female, short, in her 20's, and toting a backpack. She had a Velcro tag on her backpack; a black tag with white lettering. It read I CARRY A GUN BECAUSE A COP IS TOO HEAVY. I got her attention and said I liked it. She laughed and said thank you. I then said I'm surprised you haven't...

    Twentieth Century Fox was just days away from locking picture on “The Predator” when an urgent note came in: Delete the scene featuring Steven Wilder Striegel. Striegel, 47, didn’t have a big role in his longtime friend Shane Black’s reboot of the sci-fi thriller — just a three-page scene shared with actress Olivia Munn. But last month, Munn learned that Striegel is a registered sex offender who pleaded guilty in 2010 after facing allegations that he attempted to lure a 14-year-old female into a sexual relationship via the internet. When Munn shared the information with Fox on Aug. 15, studio...

    The Rev. Clenard Childress Jr. calls out abortion for what it is: a mass genocide of the most innocent.Childress, a leading pro-life advocate in the Black community, discussed the hypocrisy of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in a July column, citing statistics about the disproportionately high number of abortions in the Black community.Childress listed five “undeniable and inconvenient truths” about abortion, including the shocking fact that more than 20 million African American children have been aborted in the United States. That amounts to about 1,800 aborted babies in the Black community every day.Abortions hurt every...

    The late Aretha Franklin’s family said Monday that it found an Atlanta pastor’s eulogy delivered at the Queen of Soul’s funeral last week to be offensive and distasteful. The eulogist, the Rev. Jasper Williams Jr., was criticized for a political address that described children being in a home without a father as “abortion after birth” and said black lives do not matter unless blacks stop killing each other. Franklin’s funeral was on Friday. “He spoke for 50 minutes and at no time did he properly eulogize her,” said Vaughn Franklin, the late singer’s nephew, who said he was delivering...

    A fiery, old-school pastor who is under fire for saying black America is losing "its soul" at Aretha Franklin's funeral stands firm by his words with the hope critics can understand his perspective. Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. told The Associated Press in a phone interview Sunday he felt his sermon was appropriate at Franklin's funeral Friday in Detroit. He felt his timing was right, especially after other speakers spoke on the civil rights movement and President Donald Trump. "I was trying to show that the movement now is moving and should move in a different direction," he said. "......

    U.S. president Donald Trump is receiving higher-than-expected support from black Americans, according to new polling. But a vigorous debate is underway as to exactly how much black support he is receiving. According to a new Rasmussen survey, Trump is backed by a whopping 36 percent of black voters. Wait … what? If that sounds too high, it’s because it probably is. We aren’t convinced that number is accurate, although Rasmussen – along with the Trafalgar Group – was one of the few national firms to correctly predict Trump’s upset victory in 2016. They clearly knew something the other pollsters didn’t...

    **SNIP** Since Hillary Clinton’s loss in the 2016 presidential election, much conversation has taken place about black Americans’ loyalty to the Democratic Party. Since the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the party has regularly received the overwhelming majority of black votes. But some have questioned how committed the Democratic Party is to its most loyal constituency. While Clinton went on to win nearly 90 percent of black votes, questions about her commitment to the black community — based on some of her past comments about black youth — were a consistent thorn in her side during her...

    According to Rasmussen, President Trump’s approval rating among black voters is 31%. And that my friends is exactly why the media is hopping on the Omarosa bandwagon. Sure, they know her book is about as credible as an email from a Nigerian prince. But they don’t care. They need to ratchet up the “Trump is a racist” meme because the Democrat Party is hemorrhaging black voters. Dianny 🇺🇸 @DiannyRants And here, right here, is why the “Trump is a racist” narrative is back in the news. It’s shameless and craven damage control on behalf of the Democrats. Rasmussen Reports ✔...
  • Has the #WalkAway Campaign Doubled Trump’s Approval Ratings Among Black Americans?

    Townhall ^ | 8/07/18 | Joy Overbeck
    According to Rasmussen Reports on August 2, black Americans’ approval of the job President Trump is doing nearly doubled in one year, from 15 percent in August, 2017, to 29% in 2018. This could be devastating to the Democrats who depend on their traditional windfall of 85 to 95 percent of the black vote for election victory. That the stunning new prosperity driven by the Trump tax cuts has given blacks and other minorities reasons to celebrate job opportunities and family economic gains unknown during the Obama years is certainly one reason for this new phenomenon. But maybe the mind-shift...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/09/2018 | Thomas Lifson
    Dependence on 90% voting support from African-Americans for electoral success is the jugular vein of the Democratic Party.  President Trump's rising support among black voters is correctly seen as an existential threat to the party's – and progressivism's – ability to win national elections.  That's why I thought it was big news last Saturday when Rasmussen proclaimed that black approval of Trump had hit 29%, even though most of the media ignored it for reasons AT readers well understand. But the surge in black support for President Trump is real – so real that even the far-left NAACP discovered it in a poll,...

They have stopped breeding and will all go extinct soon. I enjoy being cruel to white women,” Jeong wrote on Twitter. That was fine by Twitter standards. But for replacing “white” with “black,” and Tweeting the exact same message, black conservative Candace Owens was blocked from using her Twitter account.

    Whatever you thought crazy was, put it aside. Because no matter what you think is the craziest story of black violence – and the denial, deceit, and delusion surrounding it – this recent story out of Oakland is way past that. It began simply and sadly enough on a BART system in the Oakland area. Two younger black people killed two older white guys. The reaction from BART was as predictable as it was lame: BART is safe; murder and violence are isolated; and no, you cannot see the videos from any of the hundreds of cameras in the stations....

    It's a business that has existed for as long as there have been summer vacations and borrowed lawn mowers: A pint-size entrepreneur offers to endure the rage of a summer sun on a neighbor's behalf, pushing a lawn mower across high grass for a small fee. Last week, in Maple Heights, Ohio, that entrepreneur was Reggie Fields, a 12-year-old middle schooler who is the owner and mower-in-chief of Mr. Reggie's Lawn Service. His sister and two cousins also provided manual labor in their neighborhood outside Cleveland, working a rake and a broom to corral clippings. That's what they told Lucille...
