Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., before the Senate Judiciary Committee. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen)At a Senate hearing Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham confronted the president of the NAACP with accusations that the civil rights group has an anti-Republican bias.

NAACP President Cornell Brooks was testifying in opposition to President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general when Mr. Graham challenged his and the organization’s political motives.

Earlier, Mr. Brooks said that Mr. Sessions’ record “evinces a clear disregard, disrespect, and even disdain for the civil and human rights of racial and ethnic minorities, women, the disabled, and others who suffer from discrimination in this country.”

“Based on his record and his statements, the NAACP strongly believes that confirmation of Senator Sessions as attorney general would be bad for America and could exacerbate already deepening racial divisions in this country,” he told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Mr. Graham, South Carolina Republican, later asked what was Mr. Sessions’ score on the NAACP legislative score card.

“The senator has received a low grade, a failing grade, for years on end,” Mr. Brooks said.

Mr. Graham notes that every Republican on the committee received a failing grade in the teens or 20s, while nearly every Democrat on the committee received a score of 100 percent.

NEVER...........

TRUMP WAS RIGHT ABOUT CRUZ......

HE'S NOT ELIGIBLE TO BE POTUS................

HE'S NOT A 'NATURAL BORN' CITIZEN......HE WAS BORN IN CANADA........

NOT THE U.S.A.................................................

This time we can applaud Ted, good Job. "Get on the Right side, Brother, get on the Right side, Brother.....................Thank you.

The NAACP is a joke, they have no power and all they want to do is whine and complain about what the White man is doing to them, that is an old story and by now they should have something new to whine about, all of the money that any one is dumb enough to give them goes for play and fun and wastes for what they want, it is never used to improve relations with the American people  who see them as old and phony,

The naacp has never been anything except a "CASH COW" for the likes of sharpton, jackson and a few others.

The good Black people need to ask themselves a question. 

"What has the naacp done for me? How many jobs have they provided for Black people? How many Black family lives have been improved by the work the naacp has done?" 

The answer to these questions has one! It filled the pockets of those listed above and not put "one dime" in the pockets in the hard working Black people's pocket. 

It is a real shame that many Black people listen to those race baiters instead of those that have worked hard and made something out of their lives that is respectful and extremely admirable, like, Lt. Col. Allen West, Dr. Ben Carson, Amb. Allen Keyes, Sec. of State Condi Rice and many more.  

Frankly, do we care?  They are what they are, have been for years, simply a machine that whines, and whines, and whines.

JG,

To "us" they are as you've described. BUT, they are backed by the dems, the media, college campuses and Hollywood; and they most certainly scare the living crap out of the GOP in all levels of govt. 

The NAAC"L"P (as Rush refers to them) is an integral part of the democrat-socialist machine. And that does make them very dangerous as well.

There NWO communist occultist group.

SO EXACTLY WHAT IS NEW?

NAACP President Cornell Brooks 

the NAACP a civil rights group

The NAACP is another money pit to pray on their own people  - - -

The Left democrats are racist liars. They are America's enemy without question. They have a completely different agenda than the rest of the country. It's a self centered hateful racist movement. It's time for President Trump to get rid of the civil right's division/ department, it's a racist communist movement that should die a slow horrible death. Do not put a round in it, rather suffocate it with truth and rational reason.

1 less democrat='s several safer freer citizens.

"The Left democrats are racist liars"

Do you actually believe that "hatred"  and "racism" is exclusive to the "left"?!   It isn't. 

Before you accuse someone of something...anything...make sure it hasn't been done by your side as well. 

I'll keep that in mind.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Newsweek’s Headquarters
Raided By The NYPD

The headquarters of Newsweek was raided by the NYPD Thursday morning. Police reportedly took photos of the magazine’s servers.

New York Post reports:

About two dozen NYPD officers and investigators from the Manhattan district attorney’s office raided the offices of Newsweek and its parent company, IBT Media, on Thursday.

IBT Media was co-founded by Jonathan Davis and Etienne Uzac. The IRS placed a $1.2 million federal tax lien against Uzac in December 2017.

The agents were said to be photographing servers in the offices, but not downloading any files at the offices on 7 Hanover Square, according to sources.

Few details have emerged from the raid.

“Looking into reports that the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office @ManhattanDA raided Newsweek/IBT Offices today….sources say police have been there for hours. The DA has declined to comment,” tweeted reporter Avi Asher-Schapiro.

Newsweek is also in the news Thursday after an “insider” told The Wrap editor Jon Levine that the magazine has abandoned journalism for “rage clicks,” in the Trump-era.

“Newsweek was once a premiere media organization and an incredible springboard for young journalists hoping to grow a name for themselves,” the source told Levine.

“The company culture has turned the newsroom into a toxic work environment, while the publication has descended into a content farm for last-resort clickbait,” the source added.
