It was June, 2014 at the Virginia State Convention when conservatives ousted House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor from his US House GOP leadership. There was a message delivered; however, most Capitol Hill leaders failed to catch on and continued to ignore it.
At that time, and even today, moderate GOP Washington leaders continue to reject ‘We the People’ on critical issues including stopping ‘illegal’ immigration, repeal ObamaCare, stop the ‘out-of-control’ deficit spending, and others.
Social Security recipients continue with near -$0- inflationary incomes for seniors’ while Capitol Hill legislators collect inflated incomes.
Republican Party Senators and Representatives make campaign promises to get their votes; then forget their promises after the elections.
‘We the People’ are becoming angry at those on Capitol Hill who are ignoring or forgetting promises as committed.
Capitol Hill Republican leaders are operating on the American Health Care Act Health Care, just like Democrat leaders did in year 2009 on ObamaCare, as they fail to provide details on the AHCA legislation before the votes are casts.
After faithful campaign promises to repeal ObamaCare, an overwhelming majority of Capitol Hill Republican legislators continue to follow Capitol Hill GOP leaders. These GOP leaders refuse to permit a vote on a cleaner and better AHCA legislation plan as offered by conservatives.
Capitol Hill GOP leaders continue to reject ‘We the Peoples’ ideas while supporting their own personal political agendas.
Would Rep. Paul Ryan set-up President Trump on the American Health Care Act? Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX-1) says the proposed legislation is a lie. “I think the President’s being set up for failure,” added Gohmert, “and I know people are anxious just to get this bill passed.”
Gohmert told TheBlaze., “I would love it if Democrats recognized that Obamacare was a problem and it caused them the loss of a majority and it caused them losses in statehouses all over the place. I would love for them to recognize that so we could repeal it in a bipartisan manner.”
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH-4) says, “Our job is to … do what we told the American people we were going to do when they gave us the privilege to serve, and this bill doesn’t do that. This bill doesn’t repeal Obamacare, and that fundamentally is why we’re opposed to it. And unless it changes I do not see the votes there to pass this legislation.
Former Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) of the Heritage Foundation says, “As a broad spectrum of conservative policy experts have been explaining for weeks, the House health care bill was a perfect marriage of bad policy, bad process and bad politics. Since the day it was introduced, this was presented as a false choice of this bill or nothing, and that strategy was proven very wrong.”
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) are conservatives, among others, who are offering alternate Health Care plans.
Sen. Ted Cruz offers new legislation to repeal ObamaCare and pass a ‘TRUE’ conservative version of the ‘Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’ for ‘We the People’.
Another idea is to merge the Veterans Administration Health Care into the Medicare Health Care system. This would provide immediate, professional, and local services to our earned veterans.
Republicans must consider electing new fresh and honorable conservatives and their ideas representing ‘We the People’ and America in 2018. 2018 Primary Elections may be the year when Republicans clamp down on candidates who make promises; only in returning to Washington and ‘continue as the usual’.
It is imperative for Capitol Hill Republicans to become resolute in repealing ObamaCare and starting over with a new Health Care plan; perhaps, replace our Health Care System similar to the former Medicare and Medicaid Health Care system in protecting our citizens.
Capitol Hill majority leaders must invite conservatives in showing respect to ‘We the People’; who symbolize the conduit of the Republican Party.
For anyone who chooses and wiling to read a 31 page proposed legislation:
Sen. Ted Cruz offers new legislation to repeal ObamaCare and pass a ‘TRUE’ conservative version of the ‘Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’ for ‘We the People’.
So I got a phone call from my 88-year-old black dad asking if I am familiar with “The View” TV show. I told dad the show is riddled with liberal bias. Dad said the show featured a horrific incident in which a young black male was unfairly shot by police. As best I could, I tried to explain to dad how irresponsible it was for the TV show to feature a rare “bad shoot” in the midst of cops being murdered nationwide. Despicably, the TV show wanted to do its part to further Black Lives Matter's evil lie that cops murder blacks at will.
I bombarded dad with facts and stats which prove that blacks are the greatest threat to black lives, not racist white cops. When I hung up the phone, I felt dad still leaned towards believing the lie promoted on “The View.” It is frustrating, folks.
My fellow Americans we cannot continue allowing the Left to pull the same dirty trick on us to get their way. First, they launch a media blitz promoting a false reality about one of their agenda items. Then, the Left demands that we embrace their lie or suffer being branded divisive and haters.
For example: Liberal media, the White House and Democrat talking heads are promoting Black Lives Matter's lie that cops are racist and routinely murder blacks. Nothing could be further from the truth. Cops have saved tens of thousands of minority lives since the mid-1990s. Stats prove that 93% of blacks are killed by blacks. And yet, the Left is hell-bent on intimidating us into making the Black Lives Matter lie our reality.
I find this particular Leftist tactic insidious and repulsive. The Left tugs at heartstrings by saying that they only want “unity.” But here's the dirty little secret. Unity to Leftist means they demand that decent fair-minded Americans ignore truth, ignore common sense, abandon their convictions and embrace the Left's latest anti-God and anti-American evil agenda item.
Everyone who dares speak truth and refuses to surrender to the Left's bullying are targeted for total destruction; branded divisive and haters. Every time we pander and surrender, we embolden a small group of liberal activists to impose more of their iron-fist will on the majority of Americans.
This has to stop folks. We must begin speaking the truth. Black Lives Matter is a well-funded vile hate-generating terrorist group. Their movement was founded on the lie that black criminal Michael Brown was shot with his hands up surrendering to a police officer. The truth is that Brown was shot while attacking the police officer, attempting to take his gun. These facts are public record, and yet are ignored by the Left. Black Lives Matter is pure evil, folks. Why in the world would we allow BLM to lord over us; sheepishly surrendering by making their evil lie our reality?
I am black. It frustrates me hearing well-intentioned whites and duped blacks falling for Black Lives Matter, Obama, Hollywood and the mainstream media's lie about our brave men and women in blue.
Yes, bad shootings do happen. I am sure there are bad cops. Jesus had 12 disciples and even one of them was a bad apple. Studies confirm that most cops are heroes, committed to protecting all lives.
I am sick of it, folks. I am sick of Americans being bullied into embracing things that they know are wrong; sick of the promotion of blatant lies; sick of being told we must make absurd lies our reality; sick of evil triumphing. It is time we take a stand. It is time we just say, “No!”
A scene from the western movie Pale Rider comes to mind. A group of humble miners asked the character played by Clint Eastwood to lead them in battle against a powerful group of bad guys. Eastwood told the miners that he would lead the charge, but some of them would die. Freedom ain't free, folks.
Standing up to the Left probably will not result in one's physical death. However, it could cost you everything else. I pray that God gives me his courage and strength to stand when I need it.
I am in the process of organizing/producing a Blue Lives Matter rally. My goal is to spread the truth about our police and unify Americans. I envision a black choir singing; blacks on stage sharing their positive encounters with police. A woman I approached to be on my production team said she loves the idea, but feared Black Lives Matter will be angry and cause trouble; possibly violence.
This is the intimidation that I am sick of. I told her we cannot allow evil people to stop us from doing what we know is the right thing to do. I assured her that we will invite lots of cops and hire security. After we select the venue, date, and acquire sponsors for the rally, I will promote it.
For years, I have been quoting statistics to my black relatives and associates which prove that most of the problems plaguing black communities are self-induced. But when my relative's beloved black president, democrats and mainstream media tells them all their problems are the fault of racist America, they believe it. They simply regard me as their weird Uncle Tom relative.
The Bible says be not weary in well doing. I must confess. I have been feeling weary, folks; very, very weary.
Sitting on the beach the other day, I read a book I acquired over 20 years ago. The book is Norman Vincent Peale's You Can If You Think You Can.
Dr. Peale wrote: “When everything seems to be going wrong, that is the time to practice the positive mental belief that you can still achieve your objective provided you persist, trying everything. If you start thinking it's hopeless, your state of mind will actually attract further trouble to defeat you. Instead, hold the thought that conditions will shift in your favor -- and get going.”
Dr. Peale also said it is always too soon to give up. It is crucially important that we stop pandering and surrendering to the Left's bullying tactics. It only empowers them to beat up on us more. It is time that we persist in our efforts to spread the truth in prayerful expectation of changing the hearts and minds of our fellow Americans. Brothers and sisters, let’s get going.

The 2016 Republican National Committee‘s Convention convenes on July 18. During this Convention, Republicans will elect a 2016 Presidential nominee for the November General Election ballot.
During the 2016 Republican Primary season, many Republicans and a majority of other Americans were angry at the activity with President Obama and Capitol Hill legislators. ‘We the People’ began seeking a new candidate who would stop this activity as was proceeding in Washington, DC; more illegal immigration, more out-of-control spending, high unemployment, a faulty ObamaCare protecting system, and others.
Voters became encouraged as Donald Trump would speak out loudly saying what ‘We the People’ were thinking.
Trump would then and even now continues to inappropriately throw cheap insults to challengers so as to criticize, downgrade, and/or call out other improper names to blast ‘ALL’ competitors who even question Donald Trump; on important issues.
Donald Trump’s political instruction appeared to do or say whatever was necessary to dominate, damage, and even destroy all Republican Party Presidential candidates.
Whenever others and the Medias criticized Donald Trump for his name calling, most American just ignored the Medias; continuing their Trump support. ‘We the People’ felt like we had found a new voice.
Now, many Americans and Republicans who supported and voted for Trump are now finding out that ‘MUCH’ of what Donald Trump says was not true then and words he continues to utter are ‘just not true’. Challengers and others who question Donald Trump on critical issues are not all liars, weak, and/or useless people, etc. Many Republicans who supported Donald Trump earlier are now turning their backs on Donald Trump, and his campaign.
Many are tired of Donald Trump’s ‘UNTRUTHFUL’ cheap insults at many very good men, and especially, ‘ALL’ GOP challengers.
As Trump continues to say ‘stupid’ things and persist in calling his GOP challengers and others inappropriate names, Trump has become an embarrassment to the Republican Party and to Americans.
As the GOP Convention begins on October 16, Sen. Ted Cruz is still on stage. Sen. Ted Cruz , as a lawyer, has a lifetime history in legal support of Constitutional freedoms including Clerking with the deceased SCOTUS Chief Justice, William Rehnquist.
Ted Cruz has successfully won several most important cases of putting or keeping criminals off of (y)our streets in the Judiciary, and before the Supreme Court of the United States of saving our ‘Constitutional’ freedoms. http://www.factcheck.org/2016/03/cruzs-record-before-the-supreme-court/
Ted Cruz is the best candidate ‘ever’ who is more knowledgeable, experienced, skilled, ready, electable, and a ‘pure’ Conservative who is determined to save our USA, our American flag, and restore our Constitutional freedoms based on Judeo-Christian values.
2016 GOP Presidential candidate, Ted Cruz is a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ Presidential candidate.
Read and learn more with Sen. Ted Cruz’s personal and political life; and his political voting record? http://www.youngcons.com/ted-cruzs-resume-is-very-impressive-should-make-him-standout-amongst-other-candidates/.
No one has the knowledge, experience, skill, readiness, electability, and is determined to save our USA, our American flag, and restore our Constitutional freedoms based on Judeo-Christian values other than Sen. Ted Cruz.
The evidence is shining as the very best 2016 GOP Presidential candidate ever, is Sen. Ted Cruz.
Get on board. Join the team in becoming a team player. Together, we can and will restore our USA, our American flag, and our Constitution based on Judeo-Christian values.
Someone passed on to me the latest video commentary by black conservative AlfonZo Rachel. Awesome! The brother boldly speaks the truth with humor, passion, and intelligence. I first met Zo about seven years ago.
His video caused me to reminisce about how we black conservatives have been out there on the front lines for many years, trying to wake up fellow blacks, encouraging them to liberate themselves from government and Democrat party slavery.
Some blacks are just plain stuck on stupid. Sorry, folks, but that's the truth. I have an idiot relative in mind. No matter what facts I show him about how blacks continue to suffer greatly due to Obama and democrat policies, his reply is I should be ashamed of myself for not supporting our black president.
Liberal mainstream media have done an excellent job keeping black conservatives off American's radar. Leftist's greatest fear is for the masses to hear blacks expressing love for their country; saying they don't hate or resent fellow Americans who are white; blacks who don't believe they are owed anything and believe they can succeed without democrats lowering standards or government intervention.
When I toured on Tea Party Express, CNN was embedded, producing a documentary. They were with us for at least 35 tea party rallies. I spoke and opened each rally singing my “American Tea Party Anthem.” Also traveling with us were various black conservative speakers, politicians, and authors. And yet, when CNN aired their documentary, not a single black participant was featured. CNN's sin of omission contributed to my dad believing the left's lie that the tea party movement is racist, a bunch of scary redneck white people.
As I stated, the liberal mainstream media have done a great job keeping black conservative sightings almost as rare as Bigfoot sightings. Race exploitation profiteers Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are household names among blacks. Meanwhile, my dad and most blacks that I know never heard of black conservative national radio talk show host, entrepreneur and businessman extraordinaire Herman Cain until his brief presidential campaign.
Leftists claim to be advocates for blacks. Given the epidemic of black school dropouts, fatherless households, unemployment, and crime plaguing urban blacks, one would assume Leftists would celebrate Herman Cain as a role model of what can be achieved via hard work and right choices. Instead, Leftists (liberal media, NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus and so-called civil rights advocates) despise Herman Cain. Cain contradicts Leftist's storyline that America is racist and only voting for Democrats and total dependency on government can save blacks.
For years, the only black conservatives I knew of and heard on national media were Walter Williams, Dr. Thomas Sowell, and Mychal Massie of Project 21. I first met Mychal about six years ago and was pretty starstruck. Today, Mychal is a dear conservative friend, still fighting the good fight.
There's a new crop of black conservatives entering the political arena. It does my heart good hearing about young blacks who rejected drinking the Left's America-sucks-and-you're-entitled-to-other-peoples'-hard-earned-stuff Kool-Aid.
I am extremely excited to report that black conservative/Republican Darryl Glenn is running for the Colorado U.S. Senate seat. Glenn, endorsed by Ted Cruz, plans to knock off Democrat incumbent Senator Michael Bennet. Anything you can do to assist this rock-solid conservative is greatly appreciated.
A black conservative whom I greatly respect told me he dislikes adding race into the equation. He dislikes saying we need more black conservatives. He thinks we should say we need more conservatives. Period. While I see his point, the reality is the Left has made race an issue. They say if you're black and conservative, you are stupid, mentally ill, and a betrayer of your people. We need more black conservatives in office, in the high-profile big arena, spreading truth.
Another powerful black conservative still out there fighting the good fight is Niger Innis.
Niger's late dad was civil rights icon Roy Innis. Unlike the despicable race profiteers of today, Mr. Innis was a “for real” civil rights activist. I came across a debate on YouTube between Al Sharpton and Roy Innis on the Morton Downey Jr. TV show. It got so heated that Mr. Innis physically pushed Sharpton out of his chair.
While I have never seen Niger get up into a liberal's grill, he is the Left's worse nightmare; an articulate black upbeat advocate for conservatism; a politician, tea party activist and spokesperson.
I met sister Dr. Alveda King years ago when we were panelist at a DC press conference. I was a bit starstruck meeting the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. As a black conservative activist, Alveda's calling and passion is centered around the issue of abortion. Blacks are aborting themselves into extinction.
Years ago at an event, a hostess approached me with a black conservative she wanted to introduce to me. He planned to run for congress. It was Col. Allen West. Wow, need I say more.
Black conservative powerhouse Star Parker is a former welfare cheat. You can imagine how upsetting it is to liberal Democrats to have lost her. Using her personal story, Star exposes how welfare dependency destroys black families.
There are numerous other black conservatives out there that have been spreading the good news of conservatism for a long time; underfunded and underexposed due to liberal mainstream media bias.
It took years, but I finally led my black brother to the light of conservatism. He had dinner with a group of black buddies. After one guy had a few adult beverages, he verbally attacked my brother for his conservative political views. “You're a white man! And I bet you're even a Republican!” My brother took out his voter registration card, held it up for them to see and proudly proclaimed, “You're right, I am a Republican.”
Folks, we black conservatives still have much work to do, breaking down old stereotypes and Democrat/liberal media lies and deceptions.
The American Left is just plain evil. Not only do they not seek truth, they suppress it. Everything the Left does, including shamefully exploiting the slaughter of Americans in a nightclub, is to further their deception and their power to force their unpopular agenda down our throats.
Leftists are the minority. However, they own the federal government, social media, public education, Hollywood, and the Democratic party. They incite misdirected anger, hate and guilt to bully the public into embracing their anti-American and anti-God agenda. Because the Left controls the media, they get away with falsely portraying their opposition. The Left takes disapproval of them forcing their agenda on us to absurd extremes.
For example: If you say “no” to men using girl's restrooms, Leftists in the media brand you an insane hatemonger who seeks the murder of all homosexuals. If you disagree with the Left's illogical obsession with disarming Americans, repealing the second amendment, Leftist media brands you a racist toothless idiot redneck that wants to shoot all people who do not look like you.
The Left used the same take-opposition-to-absurd-extremes tactic to brand the Tea Party racist. The good folks in the Tea Party simply disagreed with Obama's unlawful overreaching and ignoring of the Constitution. The Congressional Black caucus despicably took their opposition to the absurd extreme of claiming that the Tea Party would “love” to see black Americans “hanging on a tree.”
Upon hearing about the Orlando nightclub shooting, I told my wife Mary, “You watch, the Left will say all who disapprove with men using girl's restrooms are just as bad as the Orlando shooter.” Sure enough, that was the Left's outrageous absurd storyline reported by numerous news outlets. Summarizing the Left's media blitz, they said if you do not affirm the LGBT community and the implementation of their agenda, you are equal to the Orlando shooter; a rabid hater, responsible for those killed in the nightclub. I wonder how many Americans are falling for it.
Do you see how the Left's insidious game is played? All who oppose the Left's relentless attacks on biblical principles and our constitutional rights are branded stupid, haters, and bigots by the media. Then the Left launches a shock and awe campaign to destroy the offender. More and more Americans know the drill. More and more are bullied into silence and compliance.
It is sad how the Left has been able to pervert the word “love” into meaning we must embrace deviant and immoral behaviors.
The most annoying thing about the Left's bogus image of “caring more than the rest of us” is that their policies and ideas end up harming the people they claim to champion 99% of the time. Decades of blacks faithfully voting for Democrats (Leftists) has resulted in urban areas becoming hellholes of black on black crime, fatherless households, epidemic school dropouts, poverty and government dependency. Leftists always make every situation they touch worse.
Obama's Leftist (politically correct) CVE policy tied the hands of the FBI, blocked them from using intel they had on the Islamist terrorist Orlando shooter. Thus, Obama bears some responsibility for the deaths of the homosexuals in the Orlando nightclub. Pure and simple. And yet, Obama and his media buddies are relentlessly trying to blame the massacre on Christians and American gun owners.
Despicably, Obama and his media buddies are hell-bent on convincing Americans that the greatest source of evil and threat to Americans is not Islamist terrorists. It is Christians and American gun owners. Again, I wonder how many Americans are being duped by their deception and misdirection from the truth?
Speaking of Obama's evil efforts to cover for Islam and blame Christians and American gun owners, his DOJ is deleting all references to radical Islamic beliefs from the transcripts of the Orlando shooter's 911 call.
By the way, America has suffered a terrorist attack every year under Obama. Deaths from terrorism have quadrupled under Obama. And yet, thanks to his media buddies covering for him, Obama approval polling is over 50%.
At times, the Left's seemingly successful steamrolling of our culture puts me in a bit of a funk. History chronicles that the path America has chosen has destroyed other civilizations; destruction of the traditional family (fatherless households and etc.); the graying of the line between right and wrong and rebellion against God's natural laws. Therefore, I mourn for my country.
However, I do find encouragement to continue fighting the good fight by reminding myself that God is in control and America is worth it.
As she tallied up my groceries, I asked the supermarket cashier, “Are you still working at the bank?” When I moved to Florida 16 years ago, this same Hispanic woman was working as a bank-teller and supermarket cashier. She relied, “Yes.” I said, “You're amazing.” The elderly woman chuckled and said, “Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do. God is good.” Her cheerful demeanor and self-reliance blessed me. Obviously, she does not believe taxpayers owe her a living.
Folks, I realize this anecdotal example of character is not a big deal. And yet, it served as a cool sip of water in my desert of despair regarding the declining character of my country. God is good!
I was in the paint department. I placed the color sample next to the vase I had brought from home. “Excuse me, ma'am. Do these colors match? My wife says I'm colorblind.” She replied, “Yes.” Then she said, “Lloyd? You are Lloyd, right?”
It was Lisa Feroli, one of the originators of the Orlando Tea Party. We had not seen each other since 2009. After catching up a bit, Lisa made a few interesting comments about the Tea Party movement. Not as active as she once was, Lisa feels that some of the passion is gone. She said the movement was started by and should have remained controlled by We the People. Lisa said that unfortunately, politicians were allowed to worm their way in, citing a rally at which RINO John Boehner spoke. Lisa feels, and I concur, that too many people made the movement about them. However, I do not think opportunists jumping on the Tea Party bandwagon did any serious damage to the movement.
Republican betrayals discouraged and harmed the movement. After we Tea Party activists worked our butts off to award the GOP the House and Senate, they broke their vow to repeal Obamacare and stop Obama's executive amnesty. Outrageously, the GOP even supported Obama's anti-American policies. Now arrogant GOP knuckleheads are puzzled why so many Tea Partiers have said screw you to professional politicians, we're backing Trump.
Sadly, Sen. Ted Cruz, a true warrior for the Constitution and We the People, became a casualty of conservatives'/Tea Partiers' frustration and anger with politicians. Still, I am confident that Cruz will be back, strengthened by his faith and his struggle.
There is good news in Trump's remarkable popularity crossing all demographics. For decades, liberals have used their control of mainstream media and public education to drill into our heads that America is the greatest source of evil on the planet. Every day, liberal media bombards us with fabricated news stories designed to sell us their lie that a majority of Americans hate their country as much as liberals hate it. Liberal media's message is that America is sexist, racist, and mean and must be punished.
Liberals' mantra is, the world has too little because America has too much. They say this is why the world hates us (USA). It is only fair that we open our borders and welcome all the world in to share our misbegotten stuff.
Then, along comes presidential candidate Donald Trump, who vows to put America's best interest first. The American people respond with wildly overwhelming approval. This tells me that American patriotism has survived despite decades of liberals' attempts to cause Americans to hate their country. A majority of Americans still love their country and long to see it restored to A-number-one, top of the heap, top of the list, king of the hill – A-number-ooooonnnne! That feels good, folks.
It is probably a bit much to declare that Trump won the general election with his response to the terrorist attack at the Orlando nightclub. However, I believe that millions, including me, cheered him on. In his speech void of political correctness, Trump told the truth while offering commonsense solutions to terrorism. Trump defined the bad guys who seek to kill as many Americans as possible. Trump called out Obama and Hillary for their typical ridiculous liberal blame-America-first response. He explained the dangerous consequences of Obama's and Hillary's weak mamsy-pamsy ways of dealing with terrorism. Trump was refreshing.
Listening to news feeds of Obama's and Hillary's responses vs. Trump's, I thought, “These guys [Obama, Hillary, and their media operatives] still don't get it – clueless regarding the hearts, minds and concerns of everyday Americans. Trump gets it. Trump may have just won the presidency.”
Orlando Tea Party organizer Lisa and I agreed that we will vote for Trump.
As for the Tea Party movement, it is alive and well and will never go away. We Tea Partiers have simply matured – become more politically savvy, more focused and specialized in our efforts to take back our country. No, Trump is not a conservative. However, for the moment, Trump is our best weapon against another Democrat president vomiting more vile anti-Americanism upon the American people.
Speaking of the Tea Party, June 5, 2016, we lost a great patriot. Danita Kilcullen, founder of Tea Party Fort Lauderdale, America's longest running Tea Partier, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ due to complications with multiple myeloma cancer.
I spoke and sang for Danita's Tea Party group a year ago. Danita and her group were as passionate and engaged as ever. Danita and her group loved America and are committed to saving her. A week before Danita passed, I thought she was on the road to recovery. Her email said something like she hoped to be back fighting for freedom at their next meeting. I was shocked to hear she had passed.
Wow, what a great patriot sister.

Quoting the Pointer Sisters song, “I'm so excited!” Black pop icon Snoop Dogg's comments about the remake of the “Roots” TV series, in essence, is what I have been preaching to fellow blacks for decades (without his profanity).
Snoop said, “I'm sick of this s---. They are going to just keep beating that s--- into our heads about how they did us, huh?” Snoop spoke against new shows and movies such as “12 Years a Slave” which “keep showing the abuse we took hundreds and hundreds of years ago.”
Snoop said, “I ain't watching that s---, and I advise you motherf—ers as real n------ like myself; f--- them television shows. Snoop continued, “Let's create our own s--- based on today, how we live and how we inspire people today. Black is what's real. F--- that old s---.”
I say, “Right-on bro! (in my 1970s lingo)” Folks, for decades, I have been frustrated; trying to get through to fellow blacks that continuing to view themselves as victims and using slavery as an excuse for bad and trifling behavior only weakens them. America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for it. My reward has been to be trashed in black and liberal media; called a traitorous self-hating Uncle Tom.
I pray that the truth coming from a hip black celeb like Snoop Dogg will help to remove the scales from the eyes of black youths.
The last thing the Democratic Party wants is real black empowerment/independence. The Democratic Party's very existence is rooted in convincing as many voters as possible that they are forever victims of America in some way.
This is why when Oprah came out with her movie, Selma, I said I hoped the movie failed.
I knew her movie was propaganda to convince blacks that not much has changed in America since the 1950s and that only their continued monolithic voting for Democrats will keep eternally evil and racist white America at bay. Sure enough, in a press conference promoting Selma, Oprah ranted about how in America, blacks still suffer the injustices portrayed in her movie on a daily basis. Meanwhile, Oprah is an American Ga-zillionaire with enormous power and influence due to her millions of white fans.
Upon seeing commercials for the upcoming “Roots” remake TV series, my reaction was pretty much the same as Snoop Dogg, “I'm not watching that crap.” Like everything Leftists produce today, I know the “Roots” remake is a political tool to promote Democratic Party narratives: America sucks, government must become bigger and more controlling, blacks should be paid reparations. I also wondered how the producers would include the LGBT agenda in the remake. Would the Kunta Kinte character in the “Roots” remake be transgender?
As a young black man in 1977, I remember the original “Roots” TV series viewed by 130 million Americans. I was elated because I thought “Roots” presented slavery in a human context that decent people of all races could relate to; bringing people together. The first Rocky movie achieved the same universal humanity. It was such an eye-opener hearing my radical black power, whitey sucks, fellow black college student buddies excitedly raving about their new “Italian Stallion” hero after seeing the movie, Rocky.
In 1977, some feared the “Roots” TV series would cause riots in the streets. The American Left/Democrats of today are so divisive and so crazy with hatred for their country that they probably hope the remake of “Roots” will spark riots.
Riots in the streets would equal a crisis. The Left's golden rule is “never let a crisis go to waste”; an opportunity to implement more government control and infringements on personal freedom.
Things Democrats label a crisis (typically fake) provide Democrats with ammo to propose more government control; more government handouts, which equals more government dependency, which equals more loyal Democrat voters. It is all a scam, folks. And Democrats/Leftists have been playin' blacks for decades.
So, I agree with Snoop. Enough with the Left's relentless efforts to fill black heads with victimhoodism, constantly rehashing how America did us wrong.
I also refuse to watch the “Hate in America” TV mini-series. The series focuses solely on white racism against blacks. If the TV series seriously sought to address hate, it would include the Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter declaring open season on killing whites and cops.
Again, the TV mini-series is another Leftist tool to sell blacks the message that America is eternally racist so vote for Democrats to watch your backs.
I learned years ago, that the Left does not view Black History Month as an occasion to showcase black contributions to our country. The Left uses it to instill guilt in white Americans; instill that America still sucks and still owes blacks reparations, big time. With the Left's true purpose in mind, I renamed February, “Annual White America Sucks Month.”
When the movie, The Pursuit of Happyness starring leftist Will Smith came out, I thought, “Here we go again; another movie about how America sucks, is racist and blacks can't catch a break.” I am not going to watch that crap. Well folks, I was wrong. The movie was great. It featured the true inspiring life story of Chris Gardner, a highly successful black American entrepreneur.
Surprisingly, the movie even showed how white businessmen (typically portrayed as racist, greedy SOBs) helped Gardner to pursue his dream. I related to Gardner's story because throughout my careers, white businessmen helped me pursue my ambitions, as early as high school.
The movie, The Pursuit of Happyness was recently added to Netflix. Check it out. I think Snoop Dogg would approve.
Folks, I got angry the other day. Mary and I were on the road most of this year campaigning for Ted Cruz. We're back home in Florida. My grass is over a foot tall, neighbors are still polite, and my lawnmower won't start. I dropped off the lawnmower for Darrell, our mechanic, to fix. But that is not what made me angry.
I got angry thinking about how insane policies mandated by government are becoming the norm in America. We are being forced to accept numerous insane things like allowing men, even dressed as men, to enter girls' restrooms. All of us folks whose common sense tells us that these government mandates are insane had better keep our mouths shut or be branded bigoted, mean-spirited, intolerant, and haters, and even face prosecution and jail time.
I got angry thinking about how in the midst of surrendering more and more of our freedoms, conservatives are still being coached not to dare run true conservative candidates to stop the Democrats'/left's insanity. Folks, I feel like that guy in the movie Network. I want to run to my window, throw it open, and yell, “I'm mad as heck and not gonna take it anymore.”
Our nation was founded upon patriots who were fed up. They said, “Screw it – we ain’t taking it anymore from the all-powerful British.”
The American colonies were broken into two groups: the Loyalists and the Patriots. Patriots felt they were treated unfairly by British government, taxed without any say or representation. Patriots wanted to break free of British rule.
Loyalists behaved much like battered spouses. Though treated unfairly, loyalists saw benefits in remaining British citizens, fearful of being totally on their own. Loyalists were also extremely afraid to go up against the mighty, seemingly unbeatable British military.
Thank God there were courageous patriots – Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, George Washington, Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, Ethan Allen, Patrick Henry, and Ben Franklin – who refused to listen to cowardly gloom-and-doom loyalists.
We have fearful GOP loyalists today cautioning us to be reasonable, don't make the left really angry by pushing back too hard, and don't dare run real conservatives. Thank God we have conservative patriot warrior candidates today like Sharron Angle, Rob Maness, and Kelli Ward, to name a few.
True rock-solid conservative Sharron Angle is running for U.S. Senate, Nevada. Patriots, we must get behind this courageous, laser-focused-on-liberty patriot sister. If I hear another person on our side say a real-deal conservative can't win, I am going to slap him. Well, not really. But for crying out loud, folks, when do we start firmly supporting conservatives with proven records of loyalty, patriots with histories of putting it all on the line for us? When do we stand for what we believe to be right rather than surrendering to the left's seemingly unstoppable fundamental transformation of America?
Patriot and national conservative radio talk show host Mark Levin gets it and has endorsed Sharron Angle for U.S. Senate. Levin said he realizes that Angle faces an uphill battle against all the forces against her, but he is sick of it (mad as heck, not taking it anymore). Levin's and other endorsements are great, but they are not enough, folks. We need patriots across America to rally behind our patriot sister, calling family and friends in Nevada, telling them to vote for Angle in the fast approaching June 14 primary. Early voting starts May 28.
Sharron is seeking to defeat a RINO named Joe Heck who voted with Pelosi and the democrats 62% of the time. Heck, Nevada's so-called Republican senator, voted with Democrats for gun control, to fully fund Obamacare, and for amnesty. Well, what the “Heck” is the benefit of having a RINO, a Democrat in disguise, in that seat?
Three items atop Sharron's list of Democrat insanity she will correct are to eliminate Nevada Obamacare exchange, require voter ID in Nevada, and protect student privacy.
My fellow Americans, we find ourselves in a similar situation as did our Founding Fathers, choosing to side with fear-driven GOP loyalists or brave conservative patriots. Battered conservative GOP loyalists will go along with the status quo, allowing Heck, a RINO, to represent them in the general.
Taking a cue from our courageous Founding Fathers, brave patriots will back the true conservative in the race: patriot sister Sharron Angle.
2016 Republican Party candidate, Ted Cruz is the best candidate ‘ever’ who is more knowledgeable, skilled, ready, electable, and determined to restore our Constitutional freedoms based on Judeo-Christian values, our USA. – Oscar Y. Harward
“Ted Cruz loved the Constitution and debating since high school. He spent a lot of time on debating teams and actually made small amounts of money speaking at places like the VFW and American Legion which he saved an applied to college.”
“Ted Cruz worked his way through college; Princeton and Harvard and specialized in constitutional law. He finished at the top of his class, was considered one of the most brilliant students and as such, was selected to clerk for the Chief Justice William Rehnquist of the Supreme Court. This is an honor that only goes to the very best and brightest and immerse you in constitutional law.”
Rush Limbaugh said someone he thought was his friend texted the following during Cruz's speech suspending his campaign. “Thank God Cruz is done! I couldn't be happier. Listening to his sap makes me sick.” Rush said the text made him furious.
Here is the line in Cruz's speech that ticked off Rush's once assumed friend.
There is no substitute for victory. There is no substitute for the America that each and every one of us loves with all our heart, that we believe in with all our heart, and that together we will restore as a shining city on the hill for every generation to come.
Anyone repulsed by Cruz's statement is not my patriot brother or sister.
Political analysts and pundits are chiming in, criticizing “Ted Cruz” the person for not being enough of this or too much of that. Keeping silent, I roll my eyes and tune them out. Trying to change these super-smart political expert minds would be fruitless.
I will concede that the Cruz campaign may or may not have made a few missteps. But with Trump out there breaking every campaigning rule in the book and speaking off the top of his head, don't tell me Cruz blew it because he was not a perfect enough candidate, too this or not enough that.
For crying out loud, Ted Cruz is an awesome human being. Period! The man walks tall. In debating issues vital to our country, Cruz is peerless. When called upon to stand up for We the People, he truly is “Lion Ted.” Therefore, I will not criticize Ted. Nor will I agree with those criticizing Ted for being who he is.
This remarkable man deserves so much better.
For years, I have lamented our side's pattern of trashing and throwing our heroes under the bus. Sharron Angle, Joe Miller, Chris McDaniel, and Sarah Palin to name a few. First we whine about the GOP establishment being complicit in furthering the Democrat/left's agenda. Courageous, sincere patriots, committed to breaking the GOP's pattern of betrayal, step up and enter into the extremely leftist-favored political arena.
When our conservative gladiators enter the arena, Democrats, the left, the GOP establishment, and mainstream media team up to stop and destroy them forever. The evil coalition launches its standard 24/7 character assassination shock-and-awe attack. Phase two includes endless absurd lies and extremely well funded dirty tricks. Whenever one of our candidates falls short of winning due to the behemoth opposing them, our advisers and voters blame the candidate for being too this or not enough of that. Then we throw our courage warriors on the junk heap of tainted and forever unelectable conservatives. In other words, if only our candidate would have mastered politically walking on water, we could have won or retained the seat. The disloyalty sickens me.
This political season, many voters threw social and moral issues out the window. For the most part, Cruz stood alone vowing to investigate Planned Parenthood's horrific dead-baby-body-parts-chop-shop business, apparently a non-issue with many voters. Cruz recognized and vowed to fight LGBT activists' aggressive assault on our religious liberty, silencing and jailing Christians. Apparently defending religious liberty is a non-issue with many evangelicals.
In essence, many voters shouted, “No, not this man. Give us Barabbas!” This is the truth of how many voted.
I also reject conventional wisdom that says Cruz is done, too damaged to be the leader of a national resurgence of conservatism. Hogwash!
Over sixty years of life experiences have taught me to trust God. I am telling you, folks – there is something truly unique and special about Ted Cruz, an anointing on his life. Ted is still a young man. At some point, Cruz will come back shining brighter, bigger, and better. Great leaders are always hated and despised because they are a threat to lesser men. Eagles really do fly alone. Thank God for giving Ted Heidi, his strong “helpmeet.”
My prayer is that despite unimaginable pressure to conform to the Washington cartel status quo, Ted will remain a peerless, fearless warrior for We the People and a defender of our Constitution. I am pretty confident that Ted will always be our Ted. Still, I call upon all believers to keep Ted and his family in their prayers.
Regarding Ted Cruz, you ain't seen nothing yet.
On Election Day in Indiana, my wife Mary, our Conservative Campaign Committee and I did a final sign wave for Cruz.
That evening a friend texted, “Ted Cruz dropped out of the Presidential race tonight.” I replied, “Okay.”
Voters blew it. They allowed the best hope for America to get away. My first thought was to thank Ted and Heidi Cruz. Secondly, I wanted to thank and say something comforting to my fellow patriots who labored long and hard to save our country via Ted Cruz. Sadly, I could not think of anything hopeful or encouraging to say.
Heidi Cruz & Lloyd Marcus in Anderson IN
In our hotel room, Mary tearfully exchanged texts with family and friends supportive of Cruz. I decided to go for a walk. As I walked around the hotel grounds, an old hymn came to mind.
“Where could I go where could I go Seeking a refuge for my soul Needing a friend to help me in the end Where could I go but to the Lord.”
That is the answer folks. I find refuge, peace and hope in trusting God.
It took a miracle for Cruz to become a US Senator. God did not bring Ted this far to leave him. While I would never presume to know God's plan, I know He is not done with Ted. Ted Cruz is a young man. Let's continue to pray that God strengthens and protects Ted and his family.
Keep the faith brother and sister patriots. As God gives me strength, I will continue fighting to save our country. I pray that you will do the same. God bless, Lloyd

Republicans’ POTUS shameless choice?
Republicans accept Donald Trump at his words as he shamelessly degrades, by name, every individual who opposes his political positions.
Republicans support Donald Trump after his recent ‘flip-flops’ on abortion, major donations to Planned Parenthood, his position on the 2nd Amendment, and many other major issues.
Republicans support Donald Trump as a stated Christian when he has said several times that he never asked ‘Jesus Crist’ for forgiveness as he never does anything wrong causing a need seeking forgiveness.
Republicans support Donald Trump after he has said that President Obama is “the mark of a strong leader”; “totally a champion”; and even saying, “I would hire him”.
Republicans support Donald Trump after he has said Hillary Clinton is “very talented”; and a “great appointment” as Secretary of State.
Where are Donald Trump’s tax records? Is Donald Trump in deep trouble with the IRS; maybe criminal?
As Hillary Clinton may become an unqualified POTUS candidate on ‘felony’ charges, could Donald Trump maybe also face fraud charges of ‘felony’ on Trump University?
What represents few Republicans want (y)our White House occupants to appear and publicly see? http://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/article/donald-trump-melania-trump-knauss-first-lady-erections
The list could go on. Think about it. Pray about it. Open your mind and your heart.
Why Donald Trump? I am saddened! Ted Cruz is the exceptional POTUS of choice.
Our Constitutional freedoms based on Judeo-Christian values are now at risk.
God Bless America!
This is it, election day in Indiana; a huge day for all who love our great country and desire not to see it continue to be transformed into something evil and unrecognizable. Our Conservative Campaign Committee team is still in Indiana campaigning for Ted Cruz. We did another sign wave yesterday evening during drive time.
Remember The Pointer Sisters' hit song, “We Are Family”? That is the way I feel about my fellow patriots who have diligently worked so hard to make Ted Cruz our nominee. I just want to give a special shout-out to a few brother and sister patriots that I know have given it their all, leading the charge for Cruz.
Special thanks to Suzanne Price, Trevor Loudon, Morgan McComb, Laurie Hougham, Suzanne Guggenheim, Tony Piacente, Darla Dawald, Terresa Monroe-Hamilton, Judson Phillips and my homies at Conservative Campaign Committee. Love you guys! There are far too many of you to name or thank. So please forgive me.
We are family folks. Now, let's “git-r-done” for Ted Cruz.
P.S. Nobody makes my wife Mary laugh like Larry the Cable Guy.
Joseph Goebbels said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” While I realize that Goebbels was Hitler's propaganda minister, in no way am I comparing Trump's campaign to Hitler. Such comparisons are over-the-top nonsense. Trump is not Hitler.
I refer only to Goebbels's quote because it is the disingenuous tactic Trump has used against Ted Cruz. Trump has relentlessly repeated his outrageous “huge” lies that Cruz is a cheater; liar; and Washington, D.C. insider. Folks, nothing could be farther from the truth. And yet sadly, Trump's unfounded lies have taken root in the minds of some voters.
Cruz did his homework, thoroughly studied the delegate rules. He “legally” maximized his opportunities to win delegates. Cruz's approach to securing delegates proves his presidential executive qualifications – his instincts to dive into an issue, study it inside and out, and implement the most effective strategy. Cruz's political history broadcasts that as president, he will apply the same laser-focus to tackling issues, implementing wise and informed solutions most beneficial to we the American people.
Amazingly, Trump has gotten away with his huge lie that Cruz is a cheater, despite Trump benefiting from the same delegate rules as Cruz.
Trump's Cruz-is-a-liar huge lie is so unfounded that it can only resonate with the clueless. Please produce evidence of what Cruz has lied about.
Trumps' hugest lie about Cruz is that he is a Washington, D.C. insider. The truth is, Cruz's entire political career documents that he is the epitome of the ultimate Washington, D.C. outsider. Again, I respectfully say Trump's huge lie only works with the clueless.
As for Trump's Cruz-is-a-politics-as-usual D.C. insider lie, Mr. Trump cannot have it both ways. Remember when Trump said both parties in Washington hate Cruz, citing Cruz's outsider status as a negative, making him unable to make deals? Cruz has been vilified by both parties for faithfully fighting to implement GOP broken promises such as stopping Obama's unlawful amnesty for illegals.
Talk about cojones – Cruz infuriated the mainstream media and both parties when he shined the light of truth on D.C. insider corruption, calling it the “Washington cartel.”
The truth is that D.C. insiders despise Cruz for being a strong and formidable warrior, committed to keeping his word to voters who sent him to Washington. Now Trump is trying to convince voters that Cruz is a homey of D.C. insiders. Hogwash!
There is a huge elephant-size character flaw on display in the Trump campaign's living room. Trump's willingness to throw grenades of blatantly unfounded huge lies about Cruz and Trump's constant shifting his positions from conservative to liberal then back to conservative are causes for great concern. This man will say whatever he believes is necessary to win. Thus, it is not unreasonable to question Trump's trustworthiness.
Folks, rather than instantly believing Trump's huge lies about Cruz, please do a little research. As they said on a popular TV show, “The truth is out there.”
Another liberal position has me scratching my head. Islamist believe their faith permits them to kill a disobedient wife and behead homosexuals. Islam advocates violence against non-believers (infidels).“Fight those who believe not in Allah...” Qur'an 9:29And yet, liberals passionately defend and protect Muslims while throwing everything including the kitchen sink at Christians; claiming that Christianity is the archenemy of women and homosexuals. Christianity says, “...with loving-kindness have I drawn thee.” Jeremiah 31:3What is up with liberals' not seeing the obvious contrast between the religion they hate and the one they demand that Americans respect? Obama's DOJ vows to jail anyone speaking badly about Islam.
I am voting for Ted Cruz, the only candidate I know will fight the Left's relentless insidious quest to turn our nation away from God. I pray that the theologian's scary sermon is wrong; that it is not too late – that God has not abandoned America.“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14God bless, LloydLloyd Marcus, The Unhyphenated AmericanChairman: The Conservative Campaign CommitteeLloydMarcus.com

Donald Trump and many of his followers seem to be distributing misinformation on TV and other Medias across America that appears to be based on faulty messages from his/her/their own dishonesty, or their political ignorance to the structure of the Republican Party and its Plan of Organization’s process of electing Delegates and Alternates; leading to the election of a GOP Presidential nominee.
The GOP election of Delegates and Alternates in the Plan of Organization process leading to the GOP nomination of a POTUS, is as normal, open, free, and healthy as the voting process on election days.
At the Precinct, based on the Republican Party’s Plan of Organization, ‘ANY’ registered Republican in their own precinct, or equivalent, can/may attend and participate in their own Republican Party voting precinct, or equivalent, and offer themselves or be nominated and elected to become a Delegate or Alternate to their own County’s Convention as the numbers permitted by the Republican Party Plan of Organization.
At the County Convention, the earlier elected Delegates or Alternates to the County Convention may or will, among other actions:
- 1. Choose to offer himself/herself or to be nominated to become and elected as a Delegate or Alternate to the individual(s) Congressional District Convention as the numbers permitted by the Republican Party Plan of Organization.
At the Congressional District Convention, the earlier elected Delegates or Alternates will, among other actions:
- 1. Elect 3 Delegates and/or their stand-in Alternates to the RNC National Convention; this year in Cleveland, Ohio.
- 2. Elect Delegates and/or their stand-in Alternates to the State Convention as the numbers permitted by the Republican Party Plan of Organization.
At the State Convention, earlier elected Delegates or Alternates will, among other actions:
- 1. Elect additional Delegates and/or their stand-in Alternates to the RNC National Convention as the numbers permitted by the Republican Party Plan of Organization.
At the Republican National Committee (RNC) National Convention, earlier elected Delegates or their stand-in Alternates will, among other actions:
- 1. Authorize and Certify the elected total Delegates and/or their stand-in Alternates all over America, and its territorial nations’ to vote for, among other actions, ELECT one Republican Party nominee for POTUS and Vice-POTUS.
America, it is just this simple. Donald Trump and some of his followers should stop attacking, directing, and leading others to confuse by fabrications; and those who are attempting to mislead and/or anger members of the Republican Party and others.
Republican Party’s Presidential nominee must not be an evil conniving individual who continues to condemn, verbally abuse, and attack all others who may question the political ideas and/or issues of a candidate so as to misinform and confuse other honorable Republicans.
The Republican Party Plan of Organization or its election of Presidential nominees is a normal, free, open, and healthy plan. It is not broken or in need of repair or replacement.
