Am I the only one in the U.S. who is amazed by the media coverage of the person in Florida who wants to have a Koran burning party on Saturday, September 11th? Unlike the media, I refuse to name him because I will not contribute to his getting 15 more minutes of fame!
Even conservative media and talk show entertainers like Laura Ingraham have contributed to this circus. They have been very critical of the media coverage. So, what do they do? They have guests on the

Originally, I wasn’t going to write about radio talk show entertainer Glen Beck’s supposed “March on Washington;” but, because you, my readers, asked me to comment, I will.
The event was called, “Restoring Honor.” Its stated purpose was to be a “celebration of America’s heroes and heritage. So, I have a few questions that I wish Beck would have addressed. You can only restore that which was lost. So, what in Beck’s mind was lost and how is he going to restore it?

I was honored to be asked to be the moderator for the Maryland Black Mayors, Inc. (MBM), county executive forum for Prince George’s County, MD (see picture above). Prince George’s County is the wealthiest predominately Black county in the United States. It is considered a suburb of Washington, DC.
They represent over 700,000 citizens and manages approximately $ 2.2 billions annually. They are a 501 (c) 3 organization with the goal of promoting efficient and responsiv
Not every conspiracy is a theory; Black people are being mass manipulated.
"Just because truth has been omitted, does not mean that truth is not true. Just because reality has not been perceived, does not mean that it is not real”.
Since 2007 I have been unrelentingly engaged in the dissemination of information asserting that as a means of maintaining its white dominance and control, the US government has been using perception management techniques against its Black population. It is
The US government’s intelligence divisions have developed advances in the studies of behavioral psychology that have given them much more control over its population. It initially used these advancements to develop psychological warfare programs used to manipulate foreign populations, but it was eventually decided that this same method of psychological warfare could be used domestically as a tool to manipulate public opinion.
Today to control and produce uniformity among the masses, the U.S. gov

Here we go again. We Republicans are supposed to be the party of the rule of law, smaller government, and individual freedom. But every time I turn around, I am confused by the hypocrisy our party will display for political expediency.
The most glaring example of this in recent time was the case of Terri Schiavo back in 2005. She became brain dead due to an accident and her husband wanted to remove her from all life support. Her family asked Republicans to usurp the

“Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!” This famous quote is from the Scottish author and novelist, Walter Scott’s epic novel, Marmion (published in 1808). This is a very appropriate quote in response to the editorial Virginia senator, Jim Webb had published in last Friday’s Wall Street Journal (http://www.jameswebb.com/articles/wsj-diversity.html).
His editorial was titled, “Diversity and the Myth of White Privilege.” I am in total agreeme

During the past two weeks, Americans has once again been forced to confront our intractable issue of race—live and in living color. Regular readers of my column are well aware of my writing modus operandi. My job is not to make you agree with what I write, but rather to make you get beyond your personal biases (and we all have them) and to consider another point of view.
If, after having read my column, it motivates you to discuss what I wrote with a friend or colleag

What is amazing about the confirmation hearing of Elaine Kagan for the Supreme Court is not the loud rancoring coming out of the Republican Party, but the deafening silence coming from the radical left—especially within the Black and Latino communities. Their silence speaks so loud.
When will the Black community become more sophisticated in their approach to politics? If you are on the wrong side of Israel, the Jewish community will withhold their money and vote you out
Having received so many calls this week on the approaching anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death June 25, 2009, 1:25 p.m. (LA time), I decided to re-run the column I wrote last year in the aftermath of his death. This was my tribute to Michael and his family. I will have an exclusive announcement about this very soon, so be on the lookout!

Like a candle in the wind,
Your life came to a sudden end.
With “A Child’s Heart,”
You began your start.
I received an e-mail from Wallace "Gator" Bradley, regarding an e-mail that was being circulated regarding a proposed Monday afternoon meeting with Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr at Rainbow/PUSH regarding solutions to crime, assuming that I was overlooked and may indeed be welcome to this Monday's meeting or to provide some input.
The first things that sticks out to me are "activists" and "community organizers" missing from the subject matter, text of the meeting and systematic part of the plan of act

There is a raging debate about the Democratic Party’s push to end “don’t ask, don’t tell” (DADT) and to give amnesty to illegal immigrants. This debate provides an interesting insight into the psyche of Democrats and Republicans.
DADT is a Clinton era policy that simply says gay people can serve in the military as long as they don’t make their sexual preferences known (notice I used the term preference, NOT orientation. Orientation is very passive and suggests that one

Am I the only who is sick and tired of illegals telling me what their rights are in this country? Am I the only one who is sick and tired of pro-amnesty groups trotting out all the sob stories from illegals—“their mother brought them here when they were little kids, etc?” It’s not about rights; it’s about what is right!
Is it right for illegals to get free healthcare when citizens do not? Is it right for illegals to get in-state tuition for university when citizens do n

In 1933, Carter G. Woodson published his classic book entitled, “The Mis-Education of the Negro.” The premise of his book was that Blacks need to be self reliant and not look for others to do for us what we can (and should) do for ourselves. Woodson thought that the dominant society was teaching Blacks to have an attitude of dependency and subservience, as opposed to controlling their own destiny and teaching their children the truth about the contributions Blacks made
