RINO's killing Republican Party

Clarence McKee
BlakPAC Blogger

Watching U.S. Senate Republicans deal with healthcare reform, you would think they were in clown college and not members of a lawmaking body.

After promising constituents for seven years that they would repeal and replace Obamacare, they have thus far reneged — betraying the public trust.
One thing you can say about the Democrats, they stick together like a herd of sheep. They follow their shepherds wherever they may lead. Republicans on the other hand — in too many cases — are like a herd of cats to whom party discipline and unity means nothing.
The result, if you were in a fire fight and needed air-support, you sure couldn’t count on this batch of Senate Republicans to come to the rescue. In fact, they would probably run the other way!
Although I can respect conservatives such as Rand Paul, R-Ky., who considered the Senate proposal "Obamacare Lite" and a betrayal of Republican principles by "bailing out" insurance companies, I don't have the same respect for Republican "moderates" who have apparently come to like Obamacare’s federal goodies.
Some would call them "RINOS"—Republicans in name only. I prefer to label them "Democrat-lites."
At the first Democratic, media and left-wing artillery barrage saying the Senate proposal represented "tax cuts for the rich" and will kill thousands, these "Democrat-lites" turned tail, running for liberal cover. They were played like a violin by Democrats and the media, and danced to their tune.
Apparently, these Democrat-lites have become addicted to their own political opioid: the expansion of the Medicaid entitlement beyond caring for the poor and those unable to do for themselves to include able-bodied adults.
Until the president called all Senate Republicans to the White House for lunch, any hopes to get something done were dashed when three Democrat-lites — Sens. Shelly Moore Capito, R-W.Va., Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Lisa Murkowski, R- Alaska — said they would not even support an effort to pass a bill that would repeal Obamacare now and work on a replacement over the next two years.
The main problem is that both the Democrat-lites and conservatives, by continuing their opposition to the Senate bill — which would impose annual caps on Medicaid spending and end what has been an open-ended entitlement — ruin any chance for slowing the growth of this massive entitlement.
Since the beginning of the healthcare debate, Republicans in the U.S. House and Senate have allowed Democrats to control the narrative and message — GOP proposals were going to bring doom and gloom, kill thousands of people and be a gift for the rich.
Democrats and their leftist supporters organized protests and scored unanswered media points one after the other while Republicans were virtually silent, offered no counter attacks, and put up little defense of their own bill. As usual, at the first sign of Democratic and media attacks, Democrat-lites ran for the hills.
In fact, we heard more positive points about the Senate bill in five minutes from the president during the lunch with the senators than we have heard from Senate Republicans in the past five weeks.
Republicans have been outgunned and out messaged by Democrats. The GOP has lacked fortitude, vision, message, commitment, stamina, and political savvy. Democrats at least show that they believe in and are willing to fight for something.
So what do Republicans believe in? We'll see next week when they have a chance to support a procedural motion to at least consider the Senate bill.
If they do not, it will not be forgotten in 2018

America is Great Now

By Raynard Jackson
BlakPAC Blogger


Celebrating Independence Day and watching President Trump on the international stage during the G20 Summit, I couldn’t help but reflect upon a recent conversation I had with one of my “Hollywood” friends.
This friend is a self-proclaimed liberal and sees absolutely no value in anything Republican!
I remember having many conversations with him during last year’s presidential campaign and talking to him about Trump’s tagline, “Make America Great Again” (MAGA)
.
Even though, I’d heard his retort before from liberals, both Black and White, I was still shocked when he asked, “When was America ever great?”
When I’ve heard this response from liberals in the past, it’s usually followed with ad hominem attacks on America, beginning with slavery, then Jim Crow, segregation, police killings of unarmed Blacks, etc.

These assertions are undeniably factual, but to end there is like reading the first chapter of a book that opens with a murder and concluding that the whole book is about that one event.
Slavery and racism are still the biggest blemishes on America’s history, but because we are Americans and showed resolve, we also have one helluva redemption story to tell. We have come a long way from the days of slavery and Jim Crow.

Here are a few questions for my liberal friends. If America is so racist, how did we elect a Black man as president? If America is so racist, how did we have two consecutive Black secretaries of state (Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice)? If America is so racist, how did we have two consecutive attorneys general (Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch)? If America is so racist, how are African-Americans making millions of dollars in sports, music, business and technology?
Name me one other major power that can make the claim that Black people have these opportunities in their country. Germany can’t. Britain can’t. China can’t. Australia can’t. France can’t. I think you get my point.

During a time when all Americans should be celebrating the progress we’ve made as a nation on our journey towards redemption, liberals seem to want to focus on our past.
So, to answer my Hollywood friend’s original question, “When was America ever great?” my response is very simple.
America was great when former President Lincoln freed the slaves. America was great when Congress passed the Civil and Voting Rights Acts in the 60s. America was great when they elected the first Black president in 2008. America was great when we witnessed, yet again, the peaceful transfer of power to Donald Trump from Barack Obama, despite just witnessing one of the nastiest presidential elections in our nation’s history. America will always be great as long as we accept the will of the American people, when it comes to our free and fair elections. You don’t have to like the choice, but you must accept the result.
This is what makes America great.

Has America lived up to the words in the Declaration of Independence?
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness?”

No, we still have a long way to go, but we have made remarkable progress.
Isn’t it amazing that the very liberals who criticize this country never, ever seriously consider leaving the country? Despite all of our nation’s faults, where else could those liberals go and still have this type of freedom and opportunity? We must get back to our founding principles; love of God, love of country; and love of our people.

Academy Award winning actor, Denzel Washington made this point in a phenomenal graduation speech he gave two years ago to the students of Dillard University in New Orleans, La., one of our nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). It was one of the shortest, yet, most powerful speeches I have ever heard.
Liberals must stop obsessing about America’s racial past and focus on America’s promise. We must not live our lives in fear of loss; we must live our lives in hope of gain.
America is not as bad as it used to be and not as good as it can be.
It’s like President Obama said: “We are the change that we seek.”

Liberals are great at complaining about problems, but rarely if ever provide any practical solutions to their complaints.
On this day and every day, we have the freedom to be free. Respecting this freedom, for everyone, is how we all can truly “Make America Great Again.”

The last Colored died in 1974...and so did the NAACP

 Raynard Jackson
BlakPAC Blogger


Once again the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has proven why it is the Hillary Clinton of the Civil Rights Movement.

The NAACP used to be a storied organization, that was a major player in the historic fight for full equality for Blacks in America; that was before they got bought out by the Democratic Party in the early 1970s; before they bowed downed to the alter of the homosexual community; and before they sold themselves to the likes of radical liberal, George Soros and his open borders crowd who believe everyone has a right to be in the U.S., whether legally or illegally.

The equality that the NAACP once sought was not predicated on some “special” rights or entitlements that some groups wanted the courts to create out of thin air (gay rights). The NAACP and Blacks wanted the rights that the U.S. Constitution already said we were entitled to. In other words, the NAACP simply wanted the government to enforce the laws on the books, not create new ones.
Like Clinton, the NAACP can never seem to bring itself to accept responsibility for any of their own actions; and the plight of the Black community can always be blamed on others.
This Clinton tick led them last Friday to fire their latest president and CEO, Cornell William Brooks.
Brooks should have never been hired for this post; the national board selected him three years ago, because they wanted someone that was easy to control.
Brooks was a horrible speaker and wasn’t as charismatic as some of their past leaders, but he was easily controlled.
Since the 1970s, the NAACP has only had two heads, who made any difference in America and the organization; those two people were Benjamin Hooks and Bruce Gordon.

Hooks was an icon of the Civil Rights Movement and a staunch Republican. Richard Nixon appointed him to serve on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the early seventies. He was the first Black to ever serve on this commission and is singularly responsible for the diversity in media ownership that we see today. Without Hooks, networks like BET and TV One never would have existed.

But somehow, the NAACP rarely mentions Hooks’ Republican ties in any of the group’s written literature, but I digress. They do, however, seem very proud of Ben Chavis, the NAACP President that paid a settlement with NAACP funds to settle his sexual harassment suit and laid the last bit of dirt on a dead organization.

Maybe Hook’s speech at the NAACP’s 1990 convention is why they sanitized his Republican linage.
During the speech, Hooks said that, “It’s time today… to bring it out of the closet: No longer can we proffer polite, explicable, reasons why Black America cannot do more for itself…I’m calling for a moratorium on excuses. I challenge black America today—all of us—to set aside our alibis.”
Ouch!
Bruce Gordon came from a family with deeps roots in the Civil Rights Movement, but he chose to make his mark on America by working his way up the ladder in corporate America. He became a high-ranking executive with telecom giant Verizon.

So, his appointment to lead the NAACP in 2005 shocked everyone, because they typically hired preachers or politicians. President George W. Bush had rightfully ignored the group and refused to attend their national convention until Gordon came on board. Gordon’s business background helped him to navigate the political battlefield and he was able to build a personal relationship with President Bush, to the dismay of his group’s board.

This friction led to his abrupt resignation in 2007. Gordon stated: “I did not step into the role to be a caretaker, to be dictated to…I stepped into the role to understand as best I could the needs of the African American community and then to propose strategies and policies and programs and practices that could improve conditions for African Americans…The things I had in mind were not consistent with what some—unfortunately, too many—on the board had in mind.”

The national board of the NAACP demands undying fealty and they love to micromanage their presidents; any attemps to cut their puppet strings and you become useless to them. God forbid a president makes a decision on his own or attempts to make the group more relevant to the 21st century.

I know many of their leaders from across the country and the tragedy is that most of them don’t even believe in the issues the national board has made a priority. Publically, many state NAACP leaders say one thing and privately they believe another.
How can the NAACP claim to represent the Black community when they are out of sync with what the Black community believes and wants?

Black community is very conservative. Blacks don’t support amnesty for illegals. Blacks are the largest voting block that supports school choice and vouchers! This, despite the NAACP passing a resolution last year at their national convention opposing school choice. And they wonder why they are no longer relevant to the Black community?
I dare the NAACP national board to choose someone like Condoleezza Rice, Shannon Reeves, or Jennifer Carroll as their next leader; if they are truly interested in regaining relevancy, that’s exactly what they’ll do.

Unfortunately, the NAACP national board is totally incapable of thinking outside the box or giving up control. The NAACP has become the retirement village for the Black bourgeoisie and and since the last Colored person died in 1974, the NAACP died very soon after. It is an organization without constituents that exist by extorting Corporate America for guilt money while failing to seek diversity in employment and welfare pimping the poverty of poor blacks, The future belongs to BlakPAC. A strong organization that offers solutions that encourage upward mobility for all, regardless of race.

Our President needs us

Our President really needs us. He needs our prayers for wisdom as the Republican Never Trumpers re emerge. He needs to be aware of the Obama, Hillary, Mccain resistance movement buried deep inside of Government offices that are delaying and destroying his good works to repeal and replace failing Obamacare, lower taxes for everyone, and secure the borders and drain the swamp.
The liberal Democrats and the Fake media wants enrage Black Americans to riot and destroy their own neighborhoods this summer, but we are working to stop that foolishness by sharing the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
BlakPac was the first organization dedicated to turning out black voters for Donald J. Trump. We are fighting the Fake news that president Trump is against Blacks. It is simply not true so we are bravely going into minority communities and using social media to tell the truth and shame the devil. We clearly explain what #MAGA means to Blacks America,
For Blacks, it means access to a great school, public, charter or private, It means enjoying a safe neighborhood free from criminals and and means a growing economy that produces well paying jobs for legal Americans. This is a message of opportunity and unity for all. We need your help to deliver the truth before any more lies are spread by the Clinton News Network.
We have a proven system to get to black voters within critical districts located in battleground states, to vote for President Trump but we can not back off now. For our effort to be effective, we need to keep doing mailings, radio ads, phone calls, facebook, twitter @realblakpac instagram and other social media and door-to door visits in areas where blacks make up a large percentage of the voters.
IT'S NOT OVER! We need to continue bringing support to our President. Visit www.BlakPAC.com and make the largest and best gift.
