‘Louie, Louie’ Farrakhan’s Tehran Concert

Fresh off his declaration that he’s not an anti-Semite, only “anti-termite,” and with the 39th anniversary of the Iranian hostage crisis looming, Nation of Islam boss Louis Farrakhan flew to the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Obama: Still the Master of ‘Making Stuff Up’

Barack Obama is campaigning hard for Democrats and claiming “the character of our country is on the ballot” and Republicans are “making stuff up.” Though entirely predictable, that rhetoric might be half right. The character of our country was on the ballot 10 years ago when the freshman U.S. senator from Illinois said, “We are […]

Could Trump Win 20 Percent of the Black Vote in 2020?

The provocative Donald Trump certainly seems to be disliked by a majority of African-American professional athletes, cable news hosts, academics and the Congressional Black Caucus.

Who and What Threaten the Constitution?

Donald Trump on occasion can talk recklessly. He is certainly trying to “fundamentally transform” the United States in exactly the opposite direction from which Barack Obama promised to do the same sort of massive recalibration.

Why Obama Is Great for Republicans

Barack Obama is the best president Republicans have ever had. In his eight years in office, the 44th president helped deliver to the GOP (in no particular order) the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House, nine governorships and roughly 900 seats in state legislatures. The Republican National Committee should give the man a medal. And now […]

Why Black Voters Are Turning to Trump

The growing positive attitude of black voters towards President Trump is the wildcard in the coming midterm elections. It is real and it is expanding.

Demonization of Nunes Is a Window into Our Times

Much of what we now know about the unethical and often illegal behavior of the FBI, CIA, National Security Agency, and Department of Justice emerged due to the efforts of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Its chairman during its stunning disclosures has been Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), who in turn has been constantly […]

Obama’s Con-Job ‘Conservatism’

Some “conservatives” never learn and continue to live under mental delusions. Barack Obama has commanded their souls and continues to do so today. His public return to politics, first with his South Africa speech and last week with his campaign speech disguised as an award acceptance speech in Illinois, repeat the centrist show that has […]
