New Ad From National Black Republican Association
Below is a thought-provoking article from the National Black Republican Association, which is a conservative group opposed to Barack Obama's agenda.
WILL OBAMA'S SOCIALISM ENSLAVE BLACKS ?
A cartoon created for the NBRA by Brett Noel provides a chilling look at the future of black Americans under an Obama Administration as "Socialist Slaves" dependent on government handouts on the Democratic Party's economic plantation. As a corrupt Chicago "Community Organizer" for 20 years, Obama produced unlivable slums and wants to repeat his failure for the rest of America.
"Democracy is the road to socialism."
- Karl Marx
"We say that it may be possible in the U.S. to bring socialism through peaceful means. Perhaps through the ballot box. One thing is clear, there won't be socialism in the U.S. until the majority of the American people want it."
- The Communist Party USA

Poll: Black Dems near GOP on moral issues – This is an article that shows the folly in the calls by "moderates" for the Republican Party to abandon its conservative base and veer to the left in order to attract more blacks into the party. The Gallup poll shows that on a number of moral issues, such as gay relations, blacks are aligned more closely with Republican views.

FBI: Illinois Governor Sought To "Sell" Obama's Senate Seat By Brian Ross is an article that shows the unfolding drama about Obama's senate seat sale scandal.
Are we not to see the obvious? It is obvious and logical that Barack Obama who is vacating his Illinois senate seat to become president talked about his replacement with the governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich, who has the power to appoint Obama's replacement. Now, if that did not happen, Obama is either stupid or clueless. Since Obama is neither stupid nor clueless, then Obama must think that the American people are stupid enough to believe him when he looked us in the eye on camera and said he had "no contact" with Blagojevich. Such a blatant lie by Obama -- in the face of the fact that his chief political strategist, David Axelrod, said that Obama had "multiple" conversations with Blagojevich about the senate seat replacement -- means that Obama has something to hide. Recall how Bill Clinton had something to hide in the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Lewinsky's semen-stained blue dress proved that Clinton lied when he said he had no "sexually relations" with Lewinsky. Is there a metaphorical "blue dress' hidden in Obama's scandal-ridden closet?
In the wake of the arrest of Blagojevich and his chief of staff for corruption and conspiring to profit from the Governor's ability to appoint Obama's successor, Obama is duty bound to uphold his transparency pledge and release all records of discussions between the Obama-Biden transition office and Blagojevich regarding the appointment of Obama's successor to the United States Senate. We, the American people, deserve no less. We certainly do not deserve to have Obama, who is a lawyer like Bill Clinton, bamboozle the American people by hiding behind the technical definition of the word "inappropriate" as a way to put up a smoke screen around his contacts with Blagojevich.

The Impatient Mr. Fitzgerald By Paul R. Hollrah is an article that explores two critical questions. First, why did Obama resign his Illinois senate seat so early, and finally, why was U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald so uncharacteristically impatient to arrest the Governor of Illinois and his chief of staff? What was so compelling about this scandal that makes it different from the scandalous behavior of every big city Democratic machine in America? Was there a hidden agenda to protect Obama? As Rush Limbaugh noted, while Jesus walked on water, Obama seems to walk on cesspools.

Is Obama a Marxist? You decide.
Making the World Safe for Marxism By Randall Hoven provides startling evidence demonstrating that Obama was essentially a "red diaper baby" who was raised and educated by Marxists to be Marxist.
Hoven's article shows that Barack Obama's ideological mindset can be understood by taking a look at Obama's deeds, radical associations and words in his two books. Based on his legislative actions, Obama's voting record was the most liberal in the U.S. Senate for 2007, even more left than Bernie Sanders, a self-declared socialist. The roots of both socialism and communism can be traced to Karl Marx, the co-author of the Communist Manifesto. Marx formally launched the first meeting of the Socialist International (SI) and devised its structure, according to Pierre Mauroy, president of SI from 1992 to 1996. In his books, Obama reveals that his childhood mentor was" Frank", aka Frank Marshall Davis, an acknowledged communist. Obama also admits that he attended "socialist conferences" and read Marxist literature. While in college, Obama took classes taught by Marxists and personally sought out Marxists. In his book, "Dreams from my Father", Obama wrote: "To avoid being mistaken for such a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk rock performance poets." Obama spent 20 years in Chicago where he sought out radicals, including the anti-American Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers, an unrepentant domestic terrorist who calls himself a communist. It was in Ayers' home where Obama kicked off his run for elective office. If Obama acts like a Marxist, talks like a Marxist, and associates with Marxists, what is he? Don't birds of a feather flock together?

"The Drama of Obama" by Wayne Perryman is a book that shows how it was the consistent efforts of the Republican Party that paved the way for our nation's first black president and for all black elected officials. While the Democrats were fighting and giving their lives to maintain the institution of slavery and deny blacks civil rights through Jim Crow, Republicans were literally giving their lives to eliminate both slavery and Jim Crow. From the development of our first historical black colleges, to the contributions of George W. Bush, African Americans and women have been the benefactors of the Republicans' consistent efforts on their behalf. This impressive history is captured in Wayne Perryman's highly endorsed books: "The Drama of Obama", "Unveiling the Whole Truth" and "Unfounded Loyalty".

Getting Beyond Race
By Walter E. Williams
Despite the fact that President-elect Barack Obama's vision for our nation leaves a lot to be desired, the fact that he was elected represents a remarkable national achievement. When the War of 1861 ended, neither a former slave nor slave owner would have believed it possible for a black to be elected president in a mere century and a half, if ever. I'm sure that my grandparents, born in the 1880s, or my parents, born in the 1910s, would not have believed it possible for a black to be president and neither did I for most of my 72 years.
That's not the only progress. If one totaled black earnings, and consider blacks a separate nation, he would have found that in 2005 black Americans earned $644 billion, making them the world's 16th richest nation. That's just behind Australia but ahead of Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland. Black Americans have been chief executives of some of the world's largest and richest cities such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Gen. Colin Powell, appointed Joint Chief of Staff in October 1989, headed the world's mightiest military and later became U.S. Secretary of State, and was succeeded by Condoleezza Rice, another black. A few black Americans are among the world's richest people and many are some of the world's most famous personalities. These gains, over many difficult hurdles, speak well not only of the intestinal fortitude of a people but of a nation in which these gains were possible. They could not have been achieved anywhere else.
Acknowledgement of these achievements is not to deny that a large segment of the black community faces enormous problems. But as I have argued, most of today's problems have little or nothing to do with racial discrimination. That's not to say that every vestige of racial discrimination has been eliminated but as my colleague Dr. John McWhorter said in "End of Racism?" Forbes (11/5/08), "There are also rust and mosquitoes, and there always will be. Life goes on." The fact that the nation elected a black president hopefully might turn our attention away from the false notion that discrimination explains the problems of a large segment of the black community to the real problems that have absolutely nothing to do with discrimination.
The illegitimacy rate among blacks stands at about 70 percent. Less than 40 percent of black children are raised in two-parent households. Those are major problems but they have nothing to do with racial discrimination. During the early 1900s, illegitimacy was a tiny fraction of today's rate and black families were just as stable as white families. Fraudulent education is another problem, where the average black high school senior can read, write and compute no better than a white seventh-grader. It can hardly be blamed on discrimination. Black schools receive the same funding as white schools and most of the teachers and staffs are black and the schools are often in cities where the mayor and the city council are mostly black. Crime is a major problem. Blacks commit about 50 percent of all homicides and 95 percent of their victims are blacks.
Tragically, many black politicians and a civil rights industry have a vested interest in portraying the poor socioeconomic outcomes for many blacks as problems rooted in racial discrimination. One of the reasons they are able to get away with such deception is because there are so many guilt-ridden white people. Led by guilt, college administrators, employers and others in leadership positions, in the name of diversity, buy into nonsense such as lowering standards, racial preferences and acceptance of behavior standards they wouldn't accept from whites. Maybe the election of a black president will help white people over their guilt feelings so they can stop acting like fools in their relationships with black people.
