    A top Democratic official in Alabama has said that one of his party's U.S. senators in the state "is a racist" and accused him of marginalizing black party members and wanting them "to pick the cotton" but not "manage the plantation." The Democratic National Committee's Black Caucus Vice Chairman Randy Kelley, who is black, blasted Doug Jones, who is white, and his allies in the DNC for pressuring African Americans to increase the representation of Hispanic, Asian, youth, gay, and disabled party members in a new "Diversity Caucus," a move he argues would reduce the influence of black Democrats. Kelley...

    Lee said, “The commission would study reparation proposals. We would not dictate to the commission its design but, clearly, it would be designed for those descendants of slavery. Tragically, 250 years of slavery in the United States for those enslaved Africans did not receive workman’s comp, salary, 401(k), or anything, and literally built the wealth of the United States and Europe. That’s why it was called the trans-Atlantic slave trade, taking enslaved Africans from Africa, frankly, from many parts of Africa. This commission would have the authority appointed by the President, the Majority Leader, the Speaker, and scholars, to really...

    Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said he has “no doubt” President Donald Trump is a racist following the president’s recent attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color in which he told them to “go back” to other countries. “What I’m hearing over and over again from my constituents is, please save our democracy,” Cummings told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday. “They say, ‘Im scared.’ And I have never in my total of 37 years in public service ever heard a constituent say that they were scared of their leader,” Cummings said, referencing Trump. Asked if he believes Trump is a racist,...

    Democrats who have called President Trump and his polices racists are now pointing fingers at each other on issues of race. Allegations of racial insensitivity are flying between the 2020 Democratic contenders, as well as between House Democrats, raising concerns that internecine squabbles over identity and race are tarnishing party leaders and distracting Democrats from their goal of ousting the president in 2020. The racially-charged controversies, which have swirled around former Vice President Joe Biden, 76, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), 79, have also put a spotlight on a generational rift within the party. Longtime Democratic leaders are facing new...

But when the Congressional Black Caucus goes after them and Pelosi gets ticked off at them, then they will be marginalized."

    The First Amendment to our Constitution was proposed by the 1788 Virginia ratification convention during its narrow 89 to 79 vote to ratify the Constitution. Virginia's resolution held that the free exercise of religion, right to assembly and free speech could not be canceled, abridged or restrained. These Madisonian principles were eventually ratified by the states on March 1, 1792. Gettysburg College professor Allen C. Guelzo, in his article "Free Speech and Its Present Crisis," appearing in the autumn 2018 edition of City Journal, explores the trials and tribulations associated with the First Amendment. The early attempts to suppress free...

    Canada: Taxpayer-funded CBC puts jihad murderer Omar Khadr on its Easter Sunday show Canadian pundit Spencer Fernando calls this “disgusting,” and it is, but it is no surprise. It has been clear for years which side the establishment media is on. It is not on the side of the people in the nations where it operates. It is not on the side of the victims or foes of jihad terror. It would have been far more surprising if the CBC had featured someone who stands up against jihad terror and Sharia oppression of women and others. But if it had...

    When you come to Congress as a 29-year-old newbie and start throwing your weight around by threatening the careers of some of your party colleagues, you shouldn't be surprised if you make enemies of powerful people. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may be a media darling and Twitter sensation, but if she doesn't watch her step, she may end up being a flash in the pan, one-term congresswoman. Ocasio-Cortez and the so-called "Justice Democrats" are targeting numerous members of the Democratic establishment by threatening to primary them in 2020.  This has angered some powerful members who are now talking about finding a challenger...

    WASHINGTON — Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, facing fallout from a lawsuit claiming she fired an aide who said she was sexually assaulted by a supervisor at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, said on Wednesday she had decided to resign as the foundation’s chairwoman. Ms. Jackson Lee, a Texas Democrat in her 13th term, also stepped aside temporarily from an important House Judiciary subcommittee chairmanship, the committee said. Ms. Jackson Lee made the decision to step aside from both roles as pressure was growing within her own party to account for the claims in a Jan. 11 lawsuit brought by a...

    Elijah Cummings, D-Md., the newly minted 'chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee'.... The first unchallenged inaccuracy was the chairman’s announcement that he has the power to investigate anything.... This is factually incorrect. Congress can only pursue information necessary to inform its legislative duties. Not once did Cummings mention any contemplated legislation. Voters elect legislators, not opposition researchers or public relations operatives. Another untruth: Cummings gloated that he didn’t need to consult with Republicans before issuing subpoenas. however, consultation remains a requirement. In fact, Cummings previously advocated for more than consultation and demanded that consent from the minority party...

On the way back from a funeral, Judge Lance Mason beat his wife so badly that he broke her orbital socket.  A woman who called 911 had described a horrifying scene of “fists flying” inside the car. Their two children, ages 4 and 6, were in the SUV when their father assaulted their mother, choked her and bit her on the ear and the cheek. According to Aisha, Judge Mason "struck me in the face, yanked my hair, slammed my head into the...

    In the last decade, every single House Democrat sent to prison for financial crimes was a Congressional Black Caucus member. In the last twenty years, it’s been over 80%. After the midterms, the CBC has grown past a record 50 members. But that doesn’t mean it’s getting better. Power makes it worse... The Congressional Black Caucus has achieved a record number of seats so it’s a power player in the new Dem House majority. And CBC leaders are demanding a status in the Democrat leadership commensurate with their growing numbers. The Caucus forms somewhat less than a quarter of the...

    The Congressional Black Caucus signaled in a letter on Thursday that if Democrats win the majority in the House of Representatives, they would like African-American representation in at least one of the top two leadership positions for the party in the chamber. An African-American member has never served in either of the top two leadership positions. The private letter was sent from the chairman of the caucus, Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, and was prompted by "much speculation" about how Democrats will govern if they should assume the majority. Though Richmond praised current leadership, he states that the Congressional Black...

    We’re still traveling in Canada - Ontario specifically -  which is beautiful despite a dearth of sunshine, a surplus of precipitation and a muted palate of autumn colors most likely due to a dryer than normal summer. There is no Fox news here, which I know you’ll say is no great loss, but after flipping through the news programming on offer – CNN and the equally slanted Canadian version, CBC – I assure you that Fox serves a vital purpose. If Canada has a similar balancing element I’ve not seen it. As our own MSM knows, it’s much easier to...
