Media blackout of black Chicago protesters marching against Obama

They can’t be fooled forever!  Many blacks are waking up and realizing the President of ‘Hope’ has abandoned them.  From Breitbart:  “Not all blacks tow the racial line and  vote for Obama just because he’s black. Meet the Broke Party, who could be members of the Tea Party. They, like most US citizens want the American Dream, not poverty. They don’t want to be used by liberals like Obama who want to keep them on the welfare plantation as vote slaves. The jerks at ABC? They just hide out.”

 

 

The current Divider in Chief has failed – it is time for new leadership!

Rep Allen West: Abortion threatens the future of black Americans

On Capitol Hill last week, Rep. Allen West gathered a group of pro-life  activists together to get out the message that abortion threatens the  future of the black Americans. “Today, we’re talking about the future,”  West said. “It’s not just the $16 trillion in debt that we’re about to  put on our children and grandchildren. It’s the fact that we’re not even allowing our children and grandchildren to be born.”

 

 

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) – Adding to the argument that abortion threatens one sector of American society over others, Catherine Davis, president of The Restoration Project pointed out to the great racial disparity of women currently getting abortions.Davis said that according to the Centers for Disease Control, statistics prove that while blacks represent about 13 percent of the U.S. population, 35 percent of abortions are performed on black women.

“There is one organization whose mission is one of population control that greatly influences this disproportionate rate – that’s Planned Parenthood,” Davis said. Davis, along with other panelists, called for Congress to stop funding the organization. “They are the largest abortion provider, performing more than 329,000 abortions a year.”

Rep. West is an ardent critic of taxpayer funding for the nation’s largest provider and promoter of abortion, Planned Parenthood. West, one of two African American Republicans currently serving in Congress, has called attention to the disproportionately high abortion rate in the African American community. “It is absolutely offensive to me that Planned Parenthood is located in so many of our black communities,” West previously stated at a town hall meeting.

Other speakers at the event included Ryan Bomberger, founder of the Radiance Foundation. Bomberger’s mother was raped but carried her pregnancy to later give Bomberger up for adoption.

Bomberger’s biography states that, “His life defies the myth of the ‘unwanted’ child as he was adopted, loved and has flourished.”

West says that while cutting the federal debt and deficit, limited government, and a strong defense are vital to a strong America, the social pillars are also important.

“We cannot forget our traditional cultural values: the strength of marriage, the strength of family, the protection of the unborn,” West said.

ALLEN WEST: Black Americans should vote for Mitt Romney

Illustration Obama Crushes by Alexander Hunter for The Washington Times

I am always amazed when Black Americans vote Democrat because ‘they have always been Democrats’.  Why?  Wasn’t Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. a Republican?  I applaud the growing number of Black Conservatives and the values they represent.  For another take on this mindset please read the following article by Rep. Allen B. West via The Washington Times.  He considers Obama’s hand-outs a form of slavery.

America is no doubt the greatest country the world has ever known. Our citizens have the opportunity to be anything they want to be, worship as they please and live as they please. We are truly free.

Still, Americans are suffering. They have lost their jobs, they have lost their home, and in many situations, they have lost hope.

For the black community, the situation is even more dire.

Black unemployment hovers around 14 percent, compared to 8 percent unemployment overall. For black teenagers, the number more than doubles, as 38 percent of black teens are unemployed.

It is not just the undereducated black Americans who are suffering — 6.6 percent of black Americans with at least a bachelor’s degree are unemployed, a rate 50 percent higher than the overall unemployment rate for those with a four-year college degree.

Since 2007, black median household income has declined by 11 percent — the largest decline of all major racial and ethnic groups.

In 2011, the poverty rate among black Americans was 27.5 percent. The poverty rate among blacks living in families headed by women is 41 percent.

President Obama’s programs continue to pour billions into black communities across the country in hopes of curing well-documented socioeconomic problems, including failing schools and inadequate housing, rampant crime and drug abuse, black-on-black killings, unemployment and more. Still, despite the courageous efforts of many local institutions, agencies, school leaders, grass-roots organizations and community residents, the problems remain, and in many places have become worse.

It will take new ideas and new voices to find solutions. It will take a president who is committed to policies of economic freedom as opposed to economic dependency. Mitt Romney’s belief in basic conservative principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, individual industry leading to self-sufficiency and his beliefs about equality of opportunity will revitalize the black community. Mr. Romney’s policies would enable urban people to empower themselves and, ultimately, become self-sufficient.

When it comes to education, black children are 17 percent of students nationwide, but they are 42 percent of the students in our worst-performing schools. Mr. Romney supports empowering parents of at-risk students in the inner cities to escape failing schools by allowing federal dollars to follow children to the school of their choice.

Many black-owned businesses struggle to gain access to capital that would enable expansion or fund operating costs. Sixty percent of startups are in the white community. Compare that with just 9 percent of startups coming from the black community.

Mr. Romney will reform regulatory policies that can help black-owned businesses increase and thrive. He will reform Dodd-Frank and allow more money to be accessible to responsible black community banks so they can get money into the hands of responsible black entrepreneurs. Lower capital gains taxes and dividends also will incentivize growth in the black community.

Mr. Romney also plans to revisit the concept of urban economic zones, an idea from the late congressman and HUD Secretary Jack Kemp and Reagan economist Art Laffer. Enterprise zones are geographic areas of high unemployment that qualify for special tax breaks.

What Mr. Romney understands is that communities are best served when they’re empowered to care for themselves. The more they come to rely on government checks, the less they learn to rely on their own ability and ingenuity. As my mother always told me, “Self-esteem comes from doing estimable things.”

Conversely, Mr. Obama’s appetite for ever-increasing redistributionary handouts is the most insidious form of slavery remaining in the world today and does not promote economic freedom.

Still, it is easier to convince people that government should be doing something for them that it currently isn’t doing than to convince them that government shouldn’t be doing something for them that it currently is.

More than 95 percent of black voters voted Democratic in the last election. I am hoping we can change this status quo. When you invest your money, you diversify. You don’t put it in one single account. Black Americans need to invest their political capital so they have a voice across the entire political spectrum. If we don’t, the black community will be taken for granted and risk becoming politically irrelevant.

A recent poll showed the percentage of black Americans who have a “strongly positive” view of Mr. Obama has slipped from 83 percent to 58 percent. Those numbers show black Americans are paying attention, and they don’t like what they see.

I grew up in inner-city Atlanta, and I can tell you the most conservative people I know are my neighbors in the black community. It isn’t just in Atlanta. Thirty-three percent of Americans in the black community self-identify as conservatives. They are anti-abortion, and they believe marriage should be between a man and a woman.

Black Americans need to vote their values in November, and they will find themselves more aligned with Mr. Romney and the Republican Party. It is time for the “Party of Lincoln” to re-connect with black America.

Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Admits Obama’s Blackness Trumps His Failed Record

By Crystal Wright via Townhall

The Congressional Black Caucus was formed in 1971 to advocate on behalf of black Americans and hold lawmakers and the President of the United States accountable for policies adversely impacting blacks. The CBC is often referred to as the “conscience of the Congress.”

Considering the caucus’ history, it’s shocking CBC Chairman Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver admitted to the Root the CBC has been reluctant to criticize President Obama because he’s black. Never mind black unemployment under Obama for the past three years has been nearly double the national average and hit a record high of 16% in 2011. Black unemployment hasn’t been that high since 1984. I guess Cleaver also isn’t concerned black wealth has also plummeted under Obama. According to Pew Research Center, the average black family’s wealth is about $5,600 compared with $113,000 for whites.

According to Cleaver, “pride” about the president’s blackness trumps any concerns over current 14% black unemployment for members of the CBC. Cleaver said “if we had a white president we’d be marching around the White House.”

As the CBC celebrates their annual Legislative Conference this week in DC,  it’s more than insulting that Rep. Cleaver can chuckle about the CBC giving Obama a pass on accountability for his failed agenda with blacks and all Americans.  Cleaver’s glib reaction is particularly disturbing when you consider in 1970 the Democratic Select Committee, which later became the CBC, was outraged  by President Richard Nixon’s refusal to meet with them. Nixon’s snub appeared to be the impetus for group’s name change a year later.

In 1971, the CBC boycotted Nixon’s State of the Union because he refused to meet with them and  sent him a list of 60 policy recommendations, the link to which has been conspicuously removed from the CBC website.  At least a year ago or two ago it was there. Perhaps Cleaver removed it because he didn’t want people asking why the CBC isn’t treating Obama with the same outrage.

MSNBC abandons GOP convention during every speech by a minority (And Chris Matthews calls RNC racist?)

By  via The Daily Caller

 

One of the left’s favorite attacks on the Republican Party is  that it is the party of old white people, devoid of diversity and probably  racist.

 

 

 

 

 

If you were watching MSNBC’s coverage of the Republican National Convention  in Tampa on Tuesday night, you might believe those assertions, since missing  from the coverage was nearly every ethnic minority that spoke during Tuesday’s  festivities.

 

 

 

In lieu of airing speeches from former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis, a black  American; Mia Love, a black candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives  from Utah; and Texas senatorial hopeful Ted Cruz, a Latino American, MSNBC opted  to show commentary anchored by Rachel Maddow from Rev. Al Sharpton, Ed Schultz,  Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes and Steve Schmidt.

 

 

Throughout this convention, Matthews has  accused the Republicans of playing dog-whistle racist politics while on  scene in Tampa. It isn’t clear, however, if Matthews will hurl accusations of  racism at Davis, Love or Cruz for speeches his network failed to broadcast.

Ex-Dem and Obama Backer Artur Davis Wows the Convention – And is at the RIGHT One This Time!

Artur Davis, an ex-Democrat and Obama backer, wows the crowd at the Republican National Convention.  A former Democratic Congressman from Alabama and now living in Virginia, Davis admitted he ‘got it wrong’ in 2008 and said we ‘have a country we need to turn around’!

He has blasted Obama for gutting the Welfare Reform Bill, but please don’t tell Chrissy Hissy Matthews – he will call Davis a racist!

Mia Love – “Mr. President I am here to tell you we are not buying what you are selling in 2012″

Rising new star in the Republican Party, Mia Love, receives a standing ovation at the Republican National Convention!  If elected as Representative from Utah, she will be the first black Republican woman ever elected to Congress.  She even wowed MSNBC. I wonder, however, if she will be as welcomed into the Congressional Black Caucus as Representative Allen West (FL) was?  Good Luck Mia and thank you for being a proud American!!!

 

 

I am so glad to see more black conservatives stepping up to the plate – we need your leadership – REAL leadership!
