    Politics


    During the last election, the campaigns of the Democratic candidates treaded president Obama like he had the Ebola virus. They denied any association with the president because it was perceived as politically unhealthy to do so. One Senatorial candidate was asked if she had voted for President Obama and she refused to answer that question.

    In one of my previous articles I suggested the reason the President was having the problems he was having with Congress and a section of the American population was because he is black. I now suggest that is the reason the Democratic candidates in the last election treated him the way they did.

    What other reason can it be? If you look at the indicators that show how America is doing under President Obama, they suggest those candidates should have begged the President to help them. So how is America doing under President Obama?

    Economy: (Source is Bankrate.com) The GDC, CPI and other key economic indicators report the following:

    Gross Domestic Product (billions)  - This week it's 17535.4     a year ago it was 16661.0

    Housing Starts (thousands)  -This week it's 646   a year ago it was 628

    Producer Price Index - This week it's 201.1   a year ago it was 197.8

    Consumer Price Index - This week it's 237.6   a year ago it was 233.9

    Purchasing Managers - Index This week it's 59.0  a year ago it was 56.4

    Retail Sales - This week it's 442689   a year ago it was 425881

    Unemployment Rate - This week it's 5.9   a year ago it was 7.2

    Stocks are at an all-time high and when was the last time we paid under $3 for a gallon of regular gas?

    Crime: (Source is the Federal Department of Justice)

    The US crime rate is at its lowest point in decades. The crime rate for serious crimes, including murder, rape, and assault, has dropped significantly since the early 1990s in part because of changes in technology and policing, experts say. The last time the crime rate for serious crime – murder, rape, robbery, assault – fell to these levels, gasoline cost 29 cents a gallon and the average income for a working American was $5,807. That was 1963.

    Health Care: (The Commonwealth Fund)

    ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Overview

    Over 15 million people who didn’t have health insurance before the ACA was signed into law in 2010 are now covered bringing the total uninsured adults in the US from 18% to 13.4%. We won’t know exact enrollment numbers for each insurance type for some time. For now the best we can do is present the data we do have, analyze it and give you our educated estimates. Let’s look at some quick facts on the ACA signups and start our detailed look at what factors contributed to the current enrollment numbers.

    Enrollment Number Facts
    During open enrollment (Oct 1, 2013 – March 31, 2014 and then until April 19, 2014 under special enrollment) over 8 million Americans enrolled in a marketplace plan, coupled with other sign ups under the ACA (Medicaid, CHIP, Employer based coverage, young adults staying on plans till age 26, etc), total newly insured increased by about 15 million. Below are some key factors in understanding these basic sign up numbers.

    • 8 million Americans enrolled in a marketplace plan during open enrollment 2014 according to HHS.

    So I ask: why wouldn’t a candidate want to hitch their campaign to a president with numbers like these? The only reason I can come up with is because he is Black.

    Sen Graham’s Comments Demonstrate What Happens #IfTheySpeakForMe

    Statement from Rashad Robinson, Executive Director of ColorOfChange.org

    ***VIEW #IfTheySpeakForMe VIDEOS here: http://colorofchange.org/speak/ ***


    New York, NY -- Yesterday, CNN released audio of South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham recorded from a private event where he stated, “white men who are in male-only clubs are going to do great in my presidency.” Despite Graham’s claim that the statement was a joke, it provides a telling look into the modern Republican Party. ColorOfChange.org launched a program called “If They Speak For Me” earlier this month to highlight what can happen when narrow-minded politicians like Senator Graham are in control of decisions important to our communities.

    Rashad Robinson, Executive Director of ColorOfChange.org issued the following statement:

    “Senator Graham claims his statements about ‘white men who are in male-only clubs’ were made in jest, but in every joke there is a grain of truth. While this may have been a joke, surely his voting record is not; as a Senator, Graham has routinely pushed an agenda that favors ‘white men who are in male-only clubs.’ He has blocked equal pay legislation, opposed increases to the minimum wage, and defended attacks on our freedom to vote. He even claimed to not see how Florida’s Stand Your Ground law has ‘racial injustice about it’ after listening to deeply emotional testimonies from the mothers of Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis about their murdered children.”

    “Graham’s comments — released as Black communities across the country prepare to head to the polls — offer important insight into how some national leaders discuss politics behind closed doors. The lack of concern for Black people, people of color and women in Graham’s comments is one of the reasons why ColorOfChange.org launched #IfTheySpeakForMe. We must demand a more inclusive political conversation, in which candidates from both parties are forced to address the issues that matter most to Black people. The Black community is a critical voting bloc and will play a pivotal role in key races across the country this election season. We cannot allow politicians to turn to Black people for votes, and then run away from the issues that are important to them afterwards.”

    With over 900,000 members, ColorOfChange.org is the nation’s largest online civil rights organization.

    Faith Leaders Commit to 1 Million Conversations with Black, Latino and Faith Voters this Fall

    PICO National Network to Hold Press Call to Announce Massive, Faith-Based Voter Registration and Education Campaign


    Washington, DC— With pain and unrest in Ferguson, gridlock on immigration reform, and historic inequality of wealth in America, it has never been clearer that in our democracy some voices are being heard and others are not.

    A new national campaign, Let My People VOTE is being officially launched today, Thursday, September 4, by PICO National Network—the nation’s largest faith-based organizing network in the U.S. working with 1,000 religious congregations in more than 200 cities and towns. This is a massive multi-racial and multi-faith-based effort, spanning 15-states to engage and turn out 350,000 new or low-propensity voters in the 2014 election and beyond, whose voices have been ignored and who have been systematically locked out of the voting process.

    As part of the campaign, PICO federations recently began unofficial roll-outs in several states, in the last few weeks, with the recruitment and training of thousands of grassroots leaders. Local leaders also plan to dramatically increase mobilizing voter registration and voter education efforts in cities such as Ferguson and St. Louis, Mo.

    In our temptation to despair we remember the words of David in Psalm 28:2,"Hear my cry for mercy, as I call to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your most holy place." With those words in mind, faith leaders and advocates will seek to empower and engage voters in black, Latino, and poor communities to realize our power to help heal our nation by voting and encouraging our neighbors to do the same. Together, through Let My People VOTE, we have the power to change the moral crises our country faces.

    What:
    Local and national spokespeople to announce the Let My People VOTE effort, discuss what it means at the community-level, and how this campaign resonates with congregations

    Who:
    Kristee Paschall, Political Director, PICO National Network
    Michael McBride, Director of Urban Strategies and Lifelines to Healing, PICO National Network
    Bishop Jaime Soto, Roman Catholic Diocese of Sacramento, CA
    Rev. Mark Tyler, Mother Bethel AME Church in Philadelphia, PA
    Renowned Civil Rights Leader Rev. William Barber
    Pastor Antoine Barriere, Household of Faith, New Orleans, LA
    Jennifer Romero, DREAMER, immigration reform leader, Aurora, CO

    When: TODAY, Thursday, Sept. 4th at 1PM ET
    Dial-in: 866-952-1907; Passcode: VOTE

    (BPRW) New Report Examines the Status of Black Women in American Politics

    Study Finds Black Women are Underrepresented at All Levels of Political Office, but Face Great Opportunities for Growth in Political Voice and Representation


    (BLACK PR WIRE) – WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today Higher Heights and the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP) released a new report, “The Status of Black women in American Politics”. This comprehensive report provides a historical outline of Black women’s struggle for political representation and discusses the current landscape of political leadership for Black women across the country as well as their growing political influence. It demonstrates the need for greater engagement, recruitment, and inclusion of Black women in politics and government.

    The report notes that Black women are 7.4% of the U.S. population and 7.8% of the electorate. However, there are only 14 Black women in Congress (2.6%), 2 Black women in statewide elected executive office, 241 Black women in state legislatures (3.3%), and 26 Black women mayors in cities with populations over 30,000 (1.9%). Among the 100 largest cities in the United States, only one is led by a Black woman mayor.

    “Black women are among the country’s most politically active citizens. In 2012, Black women had the highest rate of voter turnout of any group, and they represented almost 60 percent of Black voters who went to the polls,” said Glynda Carr, co-founder of Higher Heights. “These statistics are clear evidence of Black women’s ability to be defining factors in election outcomes. This report brings to the forefront that despite this growing power, Black women’s electoral heft is not translating into political representation.”

    While Black women are politically engaged, the report addresses the distinct realities that Black women face in running for and winning elected office.

    “CAWP’s research has found that Black women are less likely to be encouraged to run for office, are more likely to be discouraged from running, and report more difficulties in fundraising than men and white women,” said Kelly Dittmar, Assistant Research Professor at CAWP and author of the report. “Black women have taken advantage of their confidence and political experiences in community work and activism to achieve political success despite these barriers, but only recently have they tapped their many opportunities for greater representation.”

    The report highlights shifts taking place in some states and congressional districts and identifies why advancing Black women’s representation matters for politics and policy.

    “The good news that we are seeing, is across the country there are examples of Black women running for office, winning and taking on the hard issues. It is evidenced in women like California Attorney General Kamala Harris, whose policies have helped reduce jail sentences and the recidivism rate of black males,” said Kimberly Peeler Allen, co-founder of Higher Heights. “We also observe it in the work of Rep. Yvette Clark (D-N.Y.), who has sponsored bills aimed at broadening access to family planning services and affordable housing. And, we see it in many other Black women on the local and state level.”

    The Center for American Progress will host the release and panel discussion today at Noon (ET). The panel will discuss developing and implementing a long-term strategy to build, expand, and support a leadership pipeline at all levels for Black women and to harness their political power to influence and impact public policy and elections. Panelists will discuss the implications of this study for the economy, reproductive health, education, and voting rights, as well as the impact of the Black women’s vote on the 2014 and 2016 election cycles.

    Media coverage is welcome, in-person at the event or remotely here via live stream. Follow the conversation at #BlackWomenLead.

    About Higher Heights:
    Higher Heights is building a national infrastructure to harness Black women’s political power and leadership potential. Headquartered in New York, NY, Higher Heights Leadership Fund, a national 501(c)(3) organization and its sister organization Higher Heights for America 501(c)(4) is investing in a long-term strategy to expand and support a Black women’s leadership pipeline at all levels and strengthen their civic participation beyond just Election Day.

    The Republicans in Congress are constantly playing the blame game


    The Republicans in Congress are constantly playing the blame game. They don’t fix anything they just blame everything on the Obama Administration.

    When unemployment was over 7%, the Republicans blamed the Obama Administration. However, when President Obama sent a jobs bill to Congress, it was the Republicans who prevented it from passing.

    The Republicans also blame President Obama and Hillary Clinton for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi. However, it was the Republicans in Congress that are responsible for the massive funding cuts for embassy security and those cuts are still in effect today. However, those cuts are something the Republicans don’t talk about.

    Now the Republicans in Congress are blaming the Obama Administration for the problems at the Veterans Administration hospitals. They are even calling for the resignation of the Secretary of Veterans Affairs. In a memo from the President George W. Bush’s transition team to President- elect Barack Obama it outlined the difficulties veterans were having obtaining timely healthcare. This memo suggests the Obama Administration inherited the Veterans Administration medical center backlog.

    However, when President Obama sent a bill to Congress to expand healthcare and educational benefits for veterans, it was Republicans in Congress that the not support the bill. Back in their districts the Republicans told their constituents the reason they couldn't support the bill was an amendment attached that dealt with the sanctions on Iran. What they didn't tell their constituents was the person who attached the amendment was their own Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Once again the Republicans are blaming the Obama Administration for problem it didn't create.

    A brief look at veterans funding under President George W. Bush explains how deep his commitment to veterans really was.

    President George W. Bush sent American troops to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan and as those troops were headed into battle he talked about his commitment to the troops. However, when those troops came home his commitment came to an end.

    According to the Gannett News service on October 23, 2003, the Bush administration opposed a plan to give National Guard and Reserve members’ access to healthcare. The Bush Administration also underfunded veteran’s health care by $2 billion in its 2004 budget. In a Washington Post article on June 17, 2003. It stated, “Bush Administration budget cuts force more than 200,000 veterans to wait more than six months for medical visits because of health care shortages."

    Since United States went to war in Afghanistan in 2001 and in Iraq in 2003 about 2.5 million members of the Army, Navy, Raines, F was, National Guard and related reserve and National Guard units have been deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq was; according to department of defense data, of those deployed, more than a third were deployed more than once. Yet the Bush administration cut $1.5 billion from military family housing, $172 billion allotted for educating the children of military personnel and these cuts also denied military families increased child tax credits.

    When Republicans have to choose between tax cuts for the rich, war profits for Halliburton or supporting our veterans; time and time again veterans on the odd man out.

    POLITICS


    When I hear members of the media analyze President Obama's lack of cooperation from the members of congress, their analysis never includes racism. But what else can it be? We are led to believe this lack of cooperation is a Democratic versus Republican issue or liberal versus conservative issue but they never call it what it is. It's a black-and-white issue. The members of Congress will even vote against what's in the best interest of their constituents just to vote against Obama.

    In 2008 Mitch Mc Connell was the highest ranking republican in congress and he told America the number one priority of the Republican Party is to make Barack Obama a one term president. This was his party’s number one priority even though America was facing a recession with double digit unemployment and home foreclosures happening so fast the banks had to hire additional staff for their foreclosure departments, just to keep pace with the foreclosures. I don’t remember Mitch Mc Connell declaring the party’s number one priority was to make Bill Clinton a one term president when he was elected.

    Take healthcare. President Obama introduced a health care bill that would have provided health care to millions of Americans. The Congressional Republicans voted against this bill which would have provided health care to their constituents. Some of the Senators who voted against this bill, John Cronyn of Texas, Thad Cochran of Mississippi, Bill Nelson of Florida, James Inhofe of Oklahoma and Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, represent states which have the highest number of uninsured in the nation. None of these Senators introduced their own bill or added provisions to President Obama's bill that would have addressed the needs of their constituents. When it comes to the federal government providing health care to their constituents every republican Senator voted against it; however, when it came to the federal government providing free health care for these Senators and their families; not one of them turned it down. Each republican senator who voted against Obama’s health care bill cited government spending as the reason they voted the way they did.

    The republican senators took the same approach on Obama's jobs bill. Here again Senators Mitch Mc Connell of Kentucky, Lindsay Graham of South Carolina, Thad Cochran of Mississippi, Saxby Chambliss of Georgia and Bill Nelson of Florida voted against it. These states have the highest rate of unemployed in the nation. Not one of them introduced a bill or made changes to Obama’s bill that would have addressed the unemployment of their constituents. Throughout the introduction of President Obama’s health care bill and job’s bill, Senators Mitch McConnell, of Kentucky, John Cronyn, of Texas, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Representatives John Boehner, of Ohio, Paul Ryan, of Wisconsin and Eric Cantor, of Virginia held press conferences to attack, what they referred to as, Obama's out-of-control spending. They constantly referred to themselves as fiscal conservatives throughout this process. When George W. Bush turned a $123 billion surplus into a $5.07 trillion deficit not one of these so-called fiscal conservatives voted against any new spending during Bush's eight years in office.

    We are constantly being told that Republicans are fiscal conservatives and how they are the watchdogs of the government spending. Well if they are watchdogs, they are blind watchdogs because they voted for all of George W. Bush’s $5.07 trillion in new spending.

    The facts prove the fiscal conservative and fiscal watchdog titles the Republicans have given themselves do not describe who they really are. They are racists. Seven of the most powerful congressmen in the house and senate, Mitch Mc Connell, Eric Cantor, Jeff Sessions, John Cornyn, Lindsay Graham, Thad Cochran and James Inhofe are from states whose ancestors gave their lives to maintain slavery; and they never dreamt the country they loved and cried crocodile tears for would one day have a black president.

    Jeff Johnson: “I, Too, Am Ready For Hillary.”


    ARLINGTON, VA – Today, the national grassroots organization Ready for Hillary announced the support of journalist, communications specialist and commentator Jeff Johnson.

    "When tens of thousands of Ohio voters were disenfranchised in 2004, then-Senator Clinton was one of the first people on the ground to ensure their voices were heard," said Johnson. "She continues to champion voting rights today, speaking out against bills that make it harder to vote and condemning the dreadful Supreme Court decision that overturned important provisions of the Voting Rights Act.”

    “In every corner of the country, Americans of all walks of life are taking democracy into their own hands by joining Ready for Hillary and encouraging her to run for president. I’m proud to step forward and say that I, too, am ready. Her tenacity, integrity and experience make her the best candidate to be our next president. I hope she runs – and wins – in 2016.”

    Johnson is an award-winning journalist, communications specialist and commentator. A former BET host/producer and MSNBC contributor, Johnson previously served as National Director for the Youth & College Division of the NAACP. Jeff was also the Communications Director for the extremely successful 2012 super PAC Black Men Vote, which mobilized record numbers of 18- to 36-year-old black men in Ohio for President Obama. He is currently the Chief of Strategy for the branding firm Illume Communications and a commentator on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show.

    With more than one million supporters, Ready for Hillary is encouraging former Secretary of State Clinton to run for president in 2016. Ready for Hillary is assembling an army of grassroots supporters and sending a message that if she is ready to run for president, we are ready to support her. We believe Hillary Clinton is the best qualified person to be president in 2016 and that her historic election would build upon the progress of President Obama and continue to lead this country into the future.

    To commemorate the sesquicentennial year of Republicans freeing Blacks from slavery…Kevin Jackson is offering an AR-15 Rifle.

    http://theblacksphere.net/ar15-gun-giveaway/

    Jackson believes Americans have freedom because of the 2nd Amendment…and a God-given right to protect themselves. As a country boy, Jackson grew up on a 25,000 acre cattle ranch in Central Texas, fishing and hunting with rods, reels, and guns.

    Growing up he learned the rich history of gun ownership…how it was necessary in freeing America from the tyranny of a king…and again in freeing Black people from the tyranny of bondage. And….how guns kept Black people free from bondage after the Emancipation Proclamation, where armed Blacks fought back racist Democrat intimidation by the Ku Klux Klan.

    Entries for the AR-15 must be received no later than midnight, April 30, 2013.

    Also, check out his website at www.theblacksphere.net to find out more on:

    * His marketing campaign for Conservatism in the Black community.

    * 100,000 Ambassadors, a project he partners with the Tea Party and grass roots communities to support black businesses by patronizing their establishments, and offering Black teen interns.

    * His pro-child stand, "It's not pro-life or pro-choice...it's pro-CHILD!"

    Kevin Jackson is the Amazon best-selling author of Sexy Brilliance …and other Political Lies and The BIG Black Lie, as well as a national speaker sharing the stage with Sarah Palin, Neal Boortz, Herman Cain, Judge Napolitano, and Andrew Breitbart. He’s been a regular on the Glenn Beck show, blogger, and contributing writer to BigGovernment, American Thinker, and featured in Townhall magazine. Additionally, Jackson hosts a radio show and guests on conservative radio shows around the country. Jackson is a father of four sons.

    Michael Steele, former RNC Chairman, joins Eniware LLC Board of Directors

    Michael Steele, the former Chairman of the Republican National Committee, has today committed to fighting a silent epidemic that plagues millions per year by joining the Board of Directors at Eniware LLC.

    Eniware was founded to meet the desperate need for proper sterilization of medical instruments in the developing world, disaster and war zones. Eniware is developing a portable, electricity-free medical device sterilizer that will greatly reduce the amount of surgical site infections contracted in low-resource environments. Currently 1.3 billion people live without regular power, and hundreds of thousands die per year because scalpels, forceps, and other equipment is not properly sterilized.

    Michael Steele believes that Eniware's technology is the solution to this ongoing, wide-scale catastrophe. Mr. Steele has joined the Board to ensure that those who live or work in low-resource areas will have the technology they need to prevent surgical site infections.

    Washington DC – March 7, 2013 – Eniware LLC, a Washington DC-based provider of portable, power-independent medical instrument sterilization, announced today that Michael Steele, the former Chairman of the Republican National Committee, and co-founder of Purple Nation Solutions, has joined Eniware’s board of directors.

    Michael Steele was elected Lieutenant Governor of Maryland in 2003, becoming the first African-American elected to state-wide office and again with his subsequent chairmanship in the Republican National Committee in 2009. Under Michael’s leadership, the RNC broke all prior fundraising records and in 2010 the Republican Party picked up the greatest number of seats in the House of Representatives since 1938. In 2012, Mr. Steele co-founded Purple Nation Solutions, Inc., a public relations and strategic communications firm, with former White House Counsel Lanny Davis, and Emmy award-winning media & communications professional Eleanor McManus.

    “Michael Steele is a visionary and iconic leader. He has blazed many trails in his career, and Eniware looks forward to benefiting from his wisdom and expertise,” said James Bernstein, MD, CEO of Eniware. “Michael’s guidance will be an invaluable asset in Eniware’s quest to make safe surgery a reality for the 60% of the world’s population without electricity.”

    “Eniware is an extraordinary company with an urgent mission,” said Michael Steele, former Chairman of the Republican National Committee. “I feel fortunate to join such a vital and necessary enterprise. Eniware’s portable sterilization technology will make a tremendous impact on lives around the globe.”

    A graduate of Johns Hopkins University and the Georgetown Law Center, Steele is a regular commentator and political analyst for MSNBC and has served as a contributor on Fox News Channel. He has appeared on Meet the Press, Face the Nation, and HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, and his writings on law, business and politics have appeared in such publications as The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Times and Politico.com.

    Co-Founded in 2011 by James Bernstein, MD and Huma Malik, Eniware’s patented technology will provide portable, power-free and affordable sterilization of medical instruments in low-resource settings such as the developing world, disaster zones, and in combat arenas. Currently, no such technology exists and millions have suffered from preventable surgical site infections. To learn more about Eniware please visit www.EniwareSterile.com.

    • Affordable Housing: Resolutions call for preserving homeownership, thwarting predatory lending, supporting foreclosure mediation, and ensuring fair and equitable distribution of inherited property.

    35 States File Lawsuit


    Taken seriously, this message could begin a solid movement to fix that which seems to be broken.

    Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to c Subject: Fwd: 35 States File Lawsuit convene a Constitutional Convention. This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on. This is an idea that we should address.

    For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws.

    The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that passed ... in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever . The self-serving must stop.

    If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

    Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ..."

    The Obama Coalition in the 2012 Election and Beyond


    Washington, D.C.—Today the Center for American Progress released a report titled, “The Obama Coalition in the 2012 Election and Beyond” at an event with CAP’s Ruy Teixeira, Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research’s Anna Greenberg, Organizing for America’s Jeremy Bird, the National Urban League’s Chanelle Hardy, the Asian American Justice Center’s Mee Moua, and National Council of La Raza’s Clarisa Martinez De Castro. In 2011 and 2012, the Center for American Progress’ Ruy Teixeira and John Halpin correctly predicted that two large forces would determine the outcome of the election: the objective reality and voter perception of the economy in key battleground states and the shifting demographic balance of the American electorate.

    In the end, with growing concern about the economy, the rising electorate of communities of color, the Millennial generation, professionals, single women and secular voters once again came together to push President Obama to get to the 270 electoral votes needed for his reelection. Their final report of this election cycle examines exit poll data and county-level election results in the 12 most important battleground states to provide a detailed examination of the Obama coalition and its potential for future growth.

    President Obama

    Additionally, Teixeira and Halpin’s new report also highlights what happens next and gives strategies that will harness the Obama coalition to sustain and achieve progressive policy change. The shifting demographic composition of the electorate has clearly favored Democrats and increased the relative strength of the party in national elections. Moreover, this transition toward a new progressive coalition was possible because of the ideological shift of the American electorate, one in which voters are moving away from the Reagan-Bush era of trickled-down economics and social conservatism and toward the more pragmatic approach of the Clinton-Obama vision that includes strong governmental support for the middle class, public investments in education, infrastructure, a fairer tax system that requires the wealthy to pay their fair share, and more inclusive social policies.

    Despite all that, politics is never pre-determined, and demographics alone will not deliver more progressive gains and achievements. The fragmented American constitutional system—coupled with the ideological unity of congressional Republicans—gives conservatives multiple veto points over progressive legislation as they control many state houses and governor’s mansions, increasing their ability to block federal action on matters such as health care and encouraging further attacks on public employees and benefits for the poor, and punitive social policies aimed at communities of color and gays and lesbians.

    Teixeira and Halpin give the following suggestions based on what they know about the electorate and the ideological orientation of the country:

    A coherent way must be found to harness the rising electorate of communities of color, young people, women, and professionals, along with economically populist white working class voters, to give strong and consistent support to a progressive policy vision to benefit all Americans. It must be made clear to all Americans that in the progressive coalition, all voices are valued, all opinions are respected, and all ideas are taken seriously. Unlike the conservative coalition, progressives should seek to invite people in rather than push them out.

    Progressives must find ways to become a more permanent social movement that organizes and engages a diverse group of Americans to advocate for government reforms and progressive and social and economic policies. Gearing up for highly expensive campaigns every four years will be insufficient for achieving progressive change. President Obama and progressives have proven they can build a powerful and growing coalition to win elections. Now they must find ways to permanently engage a diverse cross-section of Americans in support of government policies and investments that will produce a stronger middle class with rising opportunities and personal freedoms for everyone.

We believe that Americans are bound together by a common commitment to these values and we aspire to ensure that our national policies reflect these values. We work to find progressive and pragmatic solutions to significant domestic and international problems and develop policy proposals that foster a government that is "of the people, by the people, and for the people."

    Alfonzo “Zo” Rachel Tells It Like It Is


    - Alfonzo “Zo” Rachel tells it like it is in Weapon of A.S.S. (American Socialist States) Destruction (White Hall Press, August 24, 2012). -

    From Agnostic to Conservative, Rachel as a Christian conservative, social/political humorist, is distinguished by his grinning delivery and rapid fire rant style in his video commentaries called ZoNation aired on PJTV. “Zo” obliterates liberal lies…stating, “Since so many people are going to reshape the Constitution in order to suit themselves, I can’t rely on interpretations made by people.

     Alfonzo “Zo” Rachel  Weapon of A.S.S.  Destruction

    From Agnostic to Conservative, Alfonzo “Zo” Rachel tells it like it is…in Weapon of A.S.S. (American Socialist States) Destruction (White Hall Press, August 24, 2012).

    As a musician and martial arts instructor, Rachel founded Macho Sauce Productions to create right-minded entertainment. As a Christian conservative, social/political humorist, his work is distinguished by his grinning delivery and rapid fire rant style in his video commentaries called ZoNation aired on PJTV.

    “Zo” obliterates liberal lies…from the so-called “party switch” to the money-grubbing self-righteousness of the green movement, calling out Poverty pimps, Afrocentrics, RINOs, Demon-crats, whatevuh... delivering some truth bombs!

    When people see what conservative principles are from conservatives, instead of from the donkey’s mouth, we’ll have more people ready to vote with a clearer understanding of what conservatism is. I wouldn’t be as effective to that end if I were in office. I gots to be in the trenches!

    In Weapon of A.S.S. Destruction, Rachel’s commentaries include:
    The true meaning of conservatism is the conservation of our God-given rights. That’s what it really means to be conservative, despite how Democrats have tried to twist its perception over the years.

    And…So, if you’re for one nation under God, and understand that this country is a constitutional republic, then you may find yourself in the Conservative Republican tent. We form a party to hold the line against a legion of selfish people hell-bent on giving themselves power through the government, taxing us into the ground in order to support their agenda.

    Along with…All these liberties that the liberals take only amount to oppression. As well as…Since so many people are going to reshape the Constitution in order to suit themselves, I can’t rely on interpretations made by people. Instead, I must rely on insight from the One who grants us our unalienable rights in the first place—God. Social/political commentator Ann Coulter states, “Alfonzo is my new favorite Republican.”

    PACK OF LIES: VOLUME 1 of 4 Defeating Conservative Lies(with Your SmartPhone or Tablet)


    - Democrat Rhetorician Creates Portable GOP-Debunker -

    Today’s Conservatism is based on a variety of demonstrable falsehoods—lies that the GOP has cowed tens of millions of Americans into believing and accepting, so says John-Paul Bernbach, rhetorician and Democrat Party official. Astonishingly, millions of Americans have come to accept these lies as conventional wisdom. And why? Effective Republican propaganda and Ineffective Democratic arguments. But now help is on the way…

    Digital-First publisher, Astor + Blue Editions, is proud to present Pack of Lies: Debunking the 40 Most Destructive Conservative Lies in America [ISBN: 978-1-938231-60-5, Ebook, $1.99 (volume 1 of 4), September, 2012] by John-Paul Bernbach: A compendium of 40 arguments, divided into four volumes and released in digital book format for instant access and ease-of-use. Each one of the 40 chapters takes on one of the 40 most destructive conservative lies in America today, and then systematically deconstructs it, contrasts it with reality, and presents effective arguments that shoot it down. In this way, Pack of Lies not only exposes the over-arching conservative deception, but it undermines and obliterates it through painstaking refutation, issue-by-issue, lie-by-big-conservative-lie.

    PACK OF LIES: VOLUME 1 of 4

    To make it useful for political junkies and casual readers alike, each chapter of Pack of Lies can stand on its own, allowing the reader to refer any lie, any issue, or any volume that he/she needs instantly, making it a handy reference on a smartphone or tablet for quick, effective rebuttals to common misconceptions. In this volume:

    Volume 1
    LIE #1 – The Us Is A Center Right Nation
    LIE #2 – The Gop Is The Party Of Fiscal Responsibility
    LIE #3 – Cutting Taxes Increases Revenue
    LIE #4 – Half Of Americans Don’t Pay Taxes
    LIE #5 – Your Tax Dollars Are Wasted By Government
    LIE #6 – Social Security Is On The Verge Of Bankruptcy
    LIE #7 – China Owns Most Of The U.S. Debt
    LIE #8 – Gun Control Laws Are Unconstitutional
    LIE #9 – Illegal Immigrants Increase Crime Rate
    LIE #10 – Death Penalty Deters Violent Crime

    What’s unique about Pack of Lies is that it’s not just a list of the usual talking points one hears on many a loud cable network; it attacks the very premises of the arguments that Democrats have (astonishingly) already conceded to Republicans. Subsequently, the book can also be read end-to-end to provide depth and context to the progressive thinker’s strongest convictions, and/or provide fodder for new progressive arguments. An absolute must this election season, and for the many political battles yet to come.
