I hope President Trump starts making the distinction between the Democrat Party Leadership from democrat voters who have been used and abused by the Democrat Party Leadership for generations.


While the Democrat Party Leadership [DPL] has been promising to lift inner city Blacks out of their economic suffering, it is the Republican Party Leadership's policies which are actually doing that.



Black unemployment has been drastically reduced under the Republican Party Leadership and the black labor force participation rate is up.


While the DPL has been promising for generations to increase the median income of Blacks for generations, but has actually decreased it, under President Trump and the Republican Party Leadership the median income of Blacks has significantly increased while dependency upon food stamps has been reduced.


While the Democrat Party Leadership has promised to provide better schools and education for America’s Black children, it is President Trump and the Republican Party Leadership which has been advancing school choice, so Black parents have the choice between a quality public or private school, and giving their children the same education choices which wealthy families have.


President Trump and the Republican Party Leadership has also increased shovel-ready infrastructure spending and more apprenticeship, on-the-job training, which will lead to better training and jobs for Black youth. To the contrary, the Democrat Party Leadership and the Obama Administration promised, but never delivered.


So, all in all, I hope President Trump starts making the distinction between the Democrat Party Leadership which has worked to keep Black Americans on its free cheese plantation, while the Republican Party has actually worked to free Blacks from the Democrat Party Leadership’s bondage.

Brandon Straka, who is white, is helping with #WalkAway. More small groups like this are going to work better than national organized movements.

Outside the scope of the DPL agenda. Inside the scope of the DPL agenda is bring America down no matter the cost and no matter who it hurts. QED

The fact is, it is the Republican Party Leadership’s policies which are actually improving economic conditions, and that includes economic conditions for Blacks.

Even the New York Times has given credit to our current Administration. See Economists agree: Trump, not Obama, gets credit for economy

”As the months pass, it will be increasingly difficult for Democrats to separate rising wages and faster growth from the tax bill sponsored by Republicans and the rollback of regulations, which has encouraged an upturn in business investment.

Even the New York Times, no friend to President Trump, has described the “wave of optimism” sweeping over Americans business leaders, saying it is “beginning to translate into the sort of investment in new plants, equipment and factory upgrades that bolsters economic growth, spurs job creation — and may finally raise wages significantly.”

The Democrat Party Leadership’s offer for free government cheese is really not free. It first addicts and then enslaves participants on an iron fisted socialist run plantation.

Just because Black America has an entrenched ruling class (Black Misleadership Class) that works and bargains through the Democratic Party, doesn't mean that anyone is fooled that they will be well served by switching support to the race-baiting Trumppublicans. The real solution has been to work across racial and cultural barriers with others who are lower on the economic ladder. And black leadership (religious and political) has fought to keep racial divides sealed up as much as white nationalist Republicans have, over the years. Their interests are served by being the go-betweens who can direct and control the larger black communities and collect financial and related rewards for getting out the vote in black communities for Democratic candidates who...more often than not, work directly against their interests!

The Black Misleadership Class is never going to focus on more than token efforts to alleviate poverty, end mass incarceration, or police harassment in the communities they represent because they come from the wealthier black professional and business classes, who's economic interests aren't much different than their white colleagues. They just have an act to perform that really started wearing thin and dissolved when BLM protesters kicked out Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and the rest of the grifters who try to insert themselves in the middle of these situations and be the bargainers for the community. And the act isn't working anymore, but it's laughable to believe that a Republican brand that serves the richer white ruling elites would do anything for them either!

Huh? You apparently have not been paying attention to ordinary black American citizens like Bernadette Lancelin. I suggest you LISTEN TO HER very closely.



You seem to have a very short memory when it comes to what American Citizens WERE SAYING about our previous political leadership.

There is no surer way to weaken, destroy and subjugate a prosperous and freedom loving country than by importing the world’s poverty stricken and criminal populations into that country and making the country’s existing citizens tax-slaves to support the economic needs of such an invasion.

Okay, I should have qualified that sentence with "few" will believe, rather than "nobody will!" Cause there are always assholes and idiots who will get sucked in by the imperialist strategy that their lot will be better if they join in the kicking down of another minority group. Most African Americans have been smart enough to understand that when this GOP strategy of carving out at least a small black base of voter support by appeals to social conservatism (attacks on gay marriage and gay rights) and attacks on latino's in cities like L.A. will not do anything to help them/but instead they should be in alliance with lower class and dispossessed groups to advance common objectives.

As for "Bernadette Lancelin," this Texas (hairdresser according to her bio) could have been campaigning to end the practice of separating young children from their parents and placing them in dubious privately run detention orphanages (where the hell are those fucking Democrats and media liberals now? Only fringe independent media is doing any followups), and obviously she has one big, big thing in common with you conservatives: she's never asked the WHY question either! WHY are people fleeing Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala....even sending young teenagers alone on the perilous journey to try to gain entry in a better place....unfortunately the place that is the source of their oppression and subjugation!

I posted previously about the local opposition (that MSM wouldn't cover) in the community chosen for Obama's Presidential Library; so what are you talking about?

The real truth is that American conservatives and American liberals are both wedded to focusing on identity issues and avoiding mention of economic class issues; and that sure as hell included Obama...who mentioned 'middle class' many times in speeches/but had no room for 'the poor' or 'poverty.'
US conservatives are the white party, while Democrats think they can win elections by using the other side of the identity mirror and trying to get out the vote among all people of color. Conservatives don't care about losing voters of color, while Democrats demand self-flagellation from any white liberals to gain entry...and only guilt-ridden white professionals( who want to keep their money and privilege) go along with the charade! Neither side wants to mention declining wealth and living standards of the working class of all colors.

Okay, I should have . . .
You are not making any sense.


It's not American taxpaying Citizens' problem why people are ". . . fleeing Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala...." Our federal government is specifically charged with protecting our borders from "invasions".

American citizens are sick and tired of being made into tax-slaves to finance a maternity ward for the poverty stricken populations of other countries who invade America’s borders to give birth.

The Violence Central American Migrants Are Fleeing Was Stoked by the US

We're still dealing with the aftermath of atrocities committed by US allies in Central America during the Cold War.


As courts, law enforcement, and the Trump administration continue to sort out what to do with the steady stream of migrants either crossing the southern border illegally or seeking asylum, the roots of the current misery are often forgotten. The desperate border-crossers often come from Central America’s “Northern Triangle”—El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras—and are fleeing high homicide rates and violence in those countries. But this instability did not arise in a vacuum. Many historians and policy experts are quick to point out that much of the troubles in Central America were created or at least helped by the US’s interference in those countries going back decades. In other words, the foreign policy of the past has profoundly shaped the present immigration crisis.​
“Hundreds of thousands of people were displaced in the 1980s,” said Elizabeth Oglesby, an associate professor of Latin American studies at the University of Arizona. “People were fleeing violence and massacres and political persecution that the United States was either funding directly or at the very minimum, covering up and excusing.” Violence today in those countries, she said, is a directly legacy of US involvement.​
Oglesby spoke to me from Guatemala, which even today is still feeling the cumulative effects of US actions from over 50 years ago. In the 1950s, Guatemala attempted to end exploitative labor practices and give land to Mayan Indians in the highlands. The move, according to now-unclassified CIA documents, threatened US interests like the United Fruit Company, which controlled a good portion of land in Guatemala. But instead of citing economic factors, many in the US cried “communism,” saying the labor reforms were a threat to democracy. Wisconsin Senator Alexander Wiley, chair of the Foreign Relations Committee at the time, said he believed that a "Communist octopus" had used its tentacles to control events in Guatemala. In 1954, the CIA helped organize a military coup to overthrow Guatemala’s democratically elected government, and continued to train the Guatemalan military well into the 70s.​
“The war in Guatemala was really a genocide,” Oglesby said, adding that an estimated 200,000 were killed in the subsequent 36-year-long civil war, which stretched from 1960 to 1996. “The history is important because it went so far beyond anti-communism—the purpose was to destroy people’s vision of the future. It had a terrible impact on the country, hundreds of thousands of people were displaced.”​

And that's what was really swimming beneath your War On Communism!
And just to demonstrate that your phony war that's all about serving the interests of corporate power is really a bipartisan effort:

HILLARY CLINTON SAYS HONDURAS COUP NOT ILLEGAL IN DAILY NEWS EDITORIAL BOARD INTERVIEW

Governments all over the world regarded what unfolded as an illegal act, and they demanded Zelaya be returned to power. Although Clinton’s State Department took a different tack, President Barack Obama initially declared, “We believe that the coup was not legal and that President Zelaya remains the president of Honduras, the democratically elected president there.”..................................​
Clinton suggested a brokered resolution was necessary after the coup because of the threat of bloodshed from Zelaya and his friends and allies, who were “not just in Honduras but in some of the neighboring countries like Nicaragua.” She said, “We could have had a terrible civil war that would have been just terrifying in its loss of life.”​
What does Clinton think is happening now in Honduras? Does she really believe the horrific violence unfolding is not a result of the coup in 2009?​
The Huffington Post reported, “A sharp escalation of violence accompanied the 2009 coup and the expansion of cartel operations. The Honduran homicide rate spiked from an already high 61 per 100,000 in 2008 to 90 per 100,000 in 2012 — the world’s highest murder rate, according to the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime.”
(there's your refugee crisis! So why aren't you and the rest of the foaming at the mouth RIGHT demanding that Clinton come clean about how and why she engineered this military coup in 2009?)
Honduras’ transformation into one of the most violent nations in the world has fueled a refugee crisis. However, instead of confronting the role her actions as secretary of state played, Clinton has called for refugee children to be “sent back” to Honduras to “send a message to families in Central America: Do not let your children take this very dangerous journey.” In other words, do not permit children to escape the bloodshed, which has reached epidemic levels.​
Clinton argued during the editorial board meeting the U.S. government did not want to declare the government a coup because “humanitarian aid,” such as aid from the U.S. Agency for International Development, would have to be halted. The government was concerned about the impact to “very poor people,” and they did not want to “punish” the Honduran people by calling what had happened a coup.​
This excuse ignores the fact that by November there was an aid freeze as a result of the coup. Reuters reported doctors and aid workers were dealing with hungry and sick children, who could not obtain medicine because donors cut aid.​
“Soup kitchens have closed, medicines have become scarce, foreign doctors have canceled trips to Honduras, and funding for the poor to run small businesses have dried up, increasing unemployment,” according to Reuters. The European Union “suspended about $97 million in aid and the World Bank in July halted $270 million in loans.” The Inter-American Development Bank “held back $50 million.” About $450 million in credits and assistance” were frozen, Zelaya’s finance minister said.​
And, about that smoking gun:
Prior to her murder, leading environmental activist Berta Cáceres recognized Clinton played a prime role in the destruction of her country.​
“Clinton recognized that they didn’t permit Mel Zelaya’s return to the presidency,” Cáceres said. “There were going to be elections. And the international community—officials, the government, the grand majority—accepted this, even though we warned this was going to be very dangerous and that it would permit a barbarity, not only in Honduras but in the rest of the continent. And we’ve been witnesses to this.”​
“Under the umbrella of the Cold War, the US amplified its presence in the region, especially El Salvador, in order to defeat the guerrillas of the FMLN,” said Xochitl Sanchez of the Central American Resource Center (CARECEN) in Los Angeles. “The United States is complicit in creating the rampant and bloody gang violence, dire poverty, displacement and migration from El Salvador.” CARECEN was founded in 1983, as Central Americans were fleeing en masse to the US. “The need was astonishing,” said Sanchez.
“I get asked all the time, Why can’t Central Americans just stay in their country and strive for better?” Oglesby told me. “I want people to understand, Central Americans have been trying to do that for decades, and the United States put itself on the wrong side of those struggles, and now we are reaping the consequences.”
