 The Real Struggle

 

            "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12

             As the political circus plays itself out, thinking people can see the psychopathy, mendacity and hypocrisy of this culture on full display in living color.  The crass quest for power and the weaknesses and corrupti

Republicans Are Nowhere to Be Found ~

 By Raynard Jackson, Columnist ~

 In many ways, like Job in the Bible, “For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me (Job 3:25 King James Version).

I was hoping against all hope that the Republican Party would do something to really pay homage to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday today.  But, like Job, I have been forced to conclude “that which I was afraid of is come unto me.”

By Raynard Jackson, Columnist ~

 When acclaimed director, actor, producer, Spike Lee broke onto the Hollywood scene in the 1980s; he truly had to fight the power.  Hollywood was not ready for a young, brash, provocative filmmaker like Lee. 

He burst on the scene with provocative movies like She’s Gotta Have It, School Daze and Do The Right Thing.  These movies created spirited debates in the Black and White communities centered on the hot social issues of the day; femi

image002.jpgBy Raynard Jackson | Donald Trump’s political ascendancy has less to do with him and more to do with the Republican electorate’s total disillusionment with the lack of leadership coming from our congressional leadership. 

All of a sudden, along comes Donald Trump speaking a language the Republican base understands—English!

In my view, Trump, Carly Fiorina, and Chris Christie are the only Republicans that are speaking to the American people in a manner that they can understand. The rest of the fiel

Some Republicans Are Cowards on Race

image001.jpgBy Raynard Jackson | On February 18, 2009, then U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder gave a Black History Month speech to the employees at the Department of Justice.  He said in part, “Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards.” 

I think the same thing can and should be said about our Republican candidates for president.  These candidates are too busy listening

As it stands now, the GOP will never win another presidential election. 

Let me explain what I mean: 3828566196?profile=original

The American electorate has changed, and with it - so too has the formula to win elections. 

The GOP's goal of turning out their base of older, white voters and winning over independents is no longer sufficient to win presidential elections. 

For too long the GOP has been content with just appealing to white voters. We will never heal America and win consistently until conservatives are just as su

We do live in interesting times

Rodney D. Coates:

As the political dust begins to settle, there are many who are
already passing the blame and taking credit for what appears to be a major
shift in American politics. The Republicans in a sweeping set of victories
have reclaimed the House of Representatives, while the Democrats only
narrowly held on to the Senate. Already pundits are sifting through the
debris, sorting through the tea leaves, and superficially deconstructing this
most recent of elections. The problem, as with mo

Truth in Advertising

October 14, 2010

Raynard Jackson

With the mid-term elections fast approaching, I thought this would be a good time to give my views on the state of the political landscape.

Let me start by saying publically what I have been telling friends all year—if you are an incumbent, you will not be getting my vote!

Politicians from both parties have made a mockery of our political process. I was taught as a child that in a democracy—the majority rules. But, no one notified our U.S. Senate because in order t

Articles and Essays by Dr. Ron Daniels

In my last article I posed the question of whether Black voters should rescue the Democrats again in the critical mid-term elections on November 2nd. It is clear that the Democrats are in serious danger of losing control of the House and Senate. Therefore, once again the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is frantically reaching out to Black voters to ride to the rescue. I complained about the fact that the Democrats need the Black vote but h
