    President Joe Biden signed an executive order directing federal agencies to take a series of steps to promote voting access, a move that comes as congressional Democrats press for a sweeping voting and elections bill to counter efforts to restrict voting access. Biden announced the order during a recorded address on the 56th commemoration of “Bloody Sunday,” the 1965 incident in which some 600 civil rights activists were viciously beaten by state troopers as they tried to march for voting rights in Selma, Alabama. “Every eligible voter should be able to vote and have it counted,” Biden said in his...

    FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A Catholic priest with a past got removed from his church in Selma this weekend over a story of sex, drugs, and weapons. "You don't expect a priest to be packed, to have those type of weapons," said legal analyst Ralph Torres. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Fresno got a restraining order to protect church employees -- all the way up to Bishop Joseph Brennan -- from one of their own priests. Father Guadalupe Rios still has his name on the church marquee at St. Joseph's Church in Selma, but the man himself is not allowed...

    The death of Congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis, coming as it has amidst urban riots in Democrat-run cities following the murder of George Floyd by a deranged cop in a Democrat-run city offer the Democrats another opportunity for a Paul Wellstone-type funeral, a somber event to be transformed into a political rally in an election year. The October 29, 2002 funeral service for the late Sen. Paul Wellstone of Minnesota quickly morphed into a political rally against the administration of Bush 43. The Democrats filled the basketball arena chosen for the event and if you never heard booing...

    Some of the most colorful descriptions of the violence facing police officers at Lafayette Square were clumsily spliced out of the middle of Barr's answers to questions. Key details on violent riots near the White House were removed from the broadcast of an interview of Attorney General William Barr on CBS News’ “Face The Nation” Sunday. Anchor Margaret Brennan repeatedly described protests as “peaceful” and the clearing of protesters to set up a stronger perimeter as unnecessarily rushed, contentions Barr strongly denied.Left out of the interview that aired on CBS on Sunday morning was Barr’s detailed accounting of much of...

    Congregants of a historically black church in Selma, Alabama, turned their backs on Democrat presidential hopeful Mike Bloomberg on Sunday as he addressed them. The protest, which remained silent and peaceful, took place as Bloomberg was giving a speech on the 55th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday,” a day when police attacked black citizens during a civil rights march in the town. Several images shared to social media on Sunday showed both black and white voters standing with their backs turned to Bloomberg in Selma’s Brown Chapel AME Church. Multiple attendees at #BloodySunday service are turning their backs on @MikeBloomberg as...

    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...

    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 what’s 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 school’s 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 year’s midterm elections. Waters also took aim at President Trump, criticizing his feud with Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un. “This business about who’s the biggest, who’s the baddest, who’s got the biggest gun,” Waters said. “This president keeps edging that on. You know, he’s 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 country’s 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, Cantor’s 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...
