The Democratic Dilemma – The Gantt Report

AFRICANGLOBE - If a political party gets around 90% of all Black votes cast and says it is not worthwhile to spend at least money collected from Black PACs, Black labor unions, Black organizations and Black individual donors with Black consultants, Black media, Black pollsters, Black printers, Black caterers, Black mailers and other Black businesses, it should tell you something.

Why Donald Trump Doesn’t Scare Me

AFRICANGLOBE - As a Black man living in these United States, a Donald Trump presidency doesn’t scare me. Why? Well, that’s because he represents something that every Republican and Democratic candidate for the last 43 years of my life has represented to me — zero tangible change. This election has shown more Black people who believed that “racism was over,” that the only difference between white conservatives and white liberals, is the volume in which they speak-but those votes spoke loud enough. The fact is, they both want the same thing, which is to preserve their privilege.

Don’t Be Fooled By The Political Game: The Illusion Of Freedom...

AFRICANGLOBE - Politics is a game, a joke, a hustle, a con, a distraction, a spectacle, a sport, and for many devout Americans, a religion. In other words, it’s a sophisticated ruse aimed at keeping us divided and fighting over two parties whose priorities are exactly the same.

Klansman David Duke, Warns Republicans: Back Steve Scalise, Or I’ll Name...

AFRICANGLOBE - David Duke, the former head of the Ku Klux Klan, sent out a somewhat ominous message to Republican Party operatives to treat Rep. Steve Scalise fairly, or he’ll start naming names of others in the political arena with whom he’s met and maintained ties.

Obama’s Immigration Policy Hurts Blacks and Helps Republicans!

AFRICANGLOBE - That is right! Sounds incredible, does it not? What is suggested here is that the two major political parties are literally working together when it comes to the immigration issue. The end justifies the means, as the old saying goes. What is going on in Washington D.C. is nothing more than theatrics being played out on a national stage for a gullible electorate.

Republicans Vote To Sue President Obama

AFRICANGLOBE - The House suit could be the first step toward impeachment, something that has become a staple of campaign messaging for the party and already generated millions in online donations.

How America Built Its Highways To Serve The Wealthy And White

AFRICANGLOBE - In many southern cities, local city planners took advantage of federal moneys to target Black communities point-blank; in other parts of the nation, highway planners found the paths of least resistance, wiping out Black commercial districts.

Obama To Republicans: ‘Sue Me’

AFRICANGLOBE - President Barack Obama dared Republicans to follow through on their threats to bring a lawsuit against his administration over his use of executive action.

Republicans Want To Undo Voting Rights Secured In Lyndon Johnson Era

AFRICANGLOBE - Nearly 50 years ago, President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, to outlaw discrimination based on race, religion, gender, and more. The law strengthened voting rights and pushed for an end to racial segregation in schools, at the workplace, and in public places.

The Wrong Side Of History: Republicans And Nelson Mandela

AFRICANGLOBE - Many Republicans – most even – not only opposed Nelson Mandela as a “terrorist”, but also considered the anti-apartheid movement itself to be terrorism. Bishop Desmond Tutu called Ronald Reagan’s policy towards South Africa “immoral, evil and totally un-Christian.” He was without a doubt right.

House Republicans Call for Eric Holder Impeachment

AFRICANGLOBE - A group of hard-line conservative House Republicans will introduce a resolution on Thursday calling for the impeachment of Attorney General Eric Holder. But there is no sign yet that Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) or other House GOP leaders will act on the measure.

House Passes Farm Bill Without Food Stamps

House Republicans have approved a farm bill sans food stamps, leaving a gaping hole in the middle of the measure for the first time in 40 years. The decision to cleave food stamps — formerly called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, from the rest of the farm bill gives Republicans a victory after GOP lawmakers in the House turned down the full measure last month.

How Fox News Screwed Republicans

AFRICANGLOBE - Suffering an election hangover after having been told by Fox News that Mitt Romney's victory was a sure thing (a " landslide" predicted by Dick Morris), some Republicans have promised to break their addiction to the right-wing news channel in the coming year. Vowing to venture beyond the comforts of the Fox News bubble, strategists insist it's crucial that the party address its "choir-preaching problem."

Chris Christie Furious At Republicans For Not Passing Hurricane Relief Bill

AFRICANGLOBE - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) lit into House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and House Republicans Wednesday for not holding a vote on a Hurricane Sandy relief bill. "There is only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims: the House majority and their speaker, John Boehner," he said

Fiscal Cliff: Why Republicans Don’t Care What Americans Thinks

AFRICANGLOBE - Are Republicans – now summoned back to Washington by Speaker Boehner — about to succumb to public pressure and save the nation from the fiscal cliff? Don’t bet on it. Even if Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell cooperates by not mounting a filibuster and allows the Senate to pass a bill extending the Bush tax cuts to the first $250,000 of everyone’s income, Boehner may not bring it to the House floor.
