Rick Baas is a African American Republican from Wisconsin. Rick is dedicated to informing the Black community about the benefits of conservative values. Troy Shaw will be conducting these interviews for the next four years in an effort to examine The Plight of The Black Community In America (Series).
Just weeks away from likely entering the 2016 presidential race, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is putting his Republican rivals on notice that he plans to position himself as a get-it-done governor in a field with several members of Congress and former chief executives.
Mr. Walker’s latest audition came Saturday night when he keynoted the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s Patriot’s Gala in Washington, carefully mixing withering attacks on President Obama with folksy Midwest humor and a healthy touch of faith and support for Israel.

Louisiana Senator Elbert Guillory (R-Opelousas) explains why he recently switched from the Democrat Party to the Republican Party. He discusses the history of the Republican Party, founded as an Abolitionist Movement in 1854. Guillory talks about how the welfare state is only a mechanism for politicians to control the black community.
A pastor on the South Side is asking Republicans to talk to his flock after what he says are 50 years of disappointment from the other party.
CHICAGO — It is difficult to imagine a less likely GOP presidential campaign stop than O Block.
After all, it’s the most dangerous stretch of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Chicago and one of the toughest territories in the city.
But if Republicans stand a chance of chipping away at Democrats’ dominance over the black vote in this city and elsewhere, it might be something to consider.
“African-Americans have been loyal to the Democratic Party,” Pastor Corey Brooks said. “But there is a group of African-Americans that feel like the Democratic Party has not been loyal to us.”

Hillary Clinton is not the only Democratic comeback candidate on the 2016 ticket. Senate Democrats are betting on the past to rebuild their party for the future.
One of the most underappreciated stories in recent years is the deterioration of the Democratic bench under President Obama’s tenure in office. The party has become much more ideologically homogenous, losing most of its moderate wing as a result of the last two disastrous midterm elections. By one new catch-all measure, a party-strength index introduced by RealClearPolitics analysts Sean Trende and David Byler, Democrats are in their worst position since 1928. That dynamic has manifested itself in the Democratic presidential contest, where the bench is so barren that a flawed Hillary Clinton is barreling to an uncontested nomination.

The premier organization for politically active Jewish Republicans has grown considerably as new members set aside their opposition to the GOP’s conservative social agenda to make a statement on Israel.
The Republican Jewish Coalition recently hosted 800 members at its annual spring meeting in Las Vegas. Two years ago, the same gathering drew fewer than 400. President Obama gets most of the credit for doubling attendance. His antagonistic relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and emerging deal with Iran to limit but not end Tehran’s nuclear weapons program have driven up membership.
True, most of them are fiscal conservatives and foreign policy hawks who usually vote Republican — though not exclusively. But many have maintained a wary relationship with the GOP because they consider themselves “social liberals” at odds with the party’s opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage. Pushed by Obama and his Middle East policies, they have cast off those suspicions and become politically active, card-carrying members of the Republican Party.

Dear Family and Friends,
Though you have not confronted me or organized an intervention, I know many of you do not understand why I dislike Obama, vote Republican, and joined the Tea Party. Y’all think, Obama is black, we’re black — so, what is my problem?
Dad told me that grandmother, 101 years old when she passed, cried when Obama was elected. I get that and totally understand. Still, I could not go brain-dead and hop on the elect-the-first-black-president bandwagon. As a matter of fact, I was stunned by how alone I was in considering who Obama was as a candidate and what he planned to do if elected.
Democrats and the media sold Obama as America’s Great Black Hope. They protected him by hiding Obama’s anti-American friends and writings.

In an industry where only liberal ideas are “allowed,” many libertarians and conservatives keep their political views secret.
Deep in Silicon Valley, where the free market reigns and the exchange of ideas is celebrated, a subset of tech workers are hiding their true selves. Working as programmers and software engineers, they don’t want the stigma that comes with revealing who they really are.
They’re the tech company employees, startup founders, and CEOs who vote for and donate to Republican candidates, bucking the Bay Area’s liberal supremacy. Fearing the repercussions of associating with a much-maligned minority, they keep their political views fiercely hidden.
“It’s a liberal echo chamber,” Garrett Johnson, a co-founder of Lincoln Labs, which was started in 2013 to connect the right-of-center outsiders in Silicon Valley, told National Journal. “People have been convinced that Silicon Valley is reflexively liberal or progressive. And so their response is to conform.”

On Joe Scarborough’s MSNBC show this past week Yale-educated Howard Dean added a new word to the lexicon of Democratic condescension, “unknowledgeable.”
“Scott Walker, were he to become president, would be the first president in many generations that did not have a college degree,” said Dean of the Wisconsin governor. “And that’s a problem.” Scarborough countered later in the conversation, “Well, nobody is accusing Scott Walker of being dumb because he didn’t graduate from college except you.”
“I didn’t say dumb,” Dean clarified. “I said unknowledgeable.”
Despite their self-designation as the party of the people, the Democrats will reinforce this “unknowledgeable” theme at every opportunity. Through their control of the media, they have been rigging political IQ tests for the last half-century, if not longer.

What evidence is there that Walker supports amnesty and Common Core?
In Into the Whirlwind, her classic memoir detailing nearly 20 years in the Soviet Gulag as result of Stalin’s purges, Yevgeniya Ginzburg tells of an episode in a boxcar, in transit from one labor camp to another. Ginzburg was an orthodox Soviet Communist, whose son was taken from her and who was imprisoned solely because her husband, a historian, had unknowingly published an article which deviated slightly from the party line. This happened unknowingly, because the party line changed after he submitted the article to his editor, who proceeded to publish the now errant article (G-d only knows what happened to the editor).
In the incident mentioned above, Ginzburg tells of another woman in the car. She was a prisoner just like the rest, though she had been in custody much longer than most. She was utterly ostracized by the others, and would share nothing with Ginzburg and could only speak to her through gritted teeth. Her crime? She had been a Social Revolutionary, a Menshevik, rather than an orthodox Bolshevik, and she refused to recant her error and repent of her sin.
That’s what ideological purity gets you.

Remember one year ago, when President Obama was claiming that unless Republicans again renewed the temporary, extra-long unemployment benefits enacted in the depths of the recession, the economy would suffer?
Remember how his advisers claimed that if Congress let unemployment benefits return to normal, 240,000 jobs would be lost, and how a New York Times columnist claimed it was because Republicans liked to “afflict the afflicted”?
Republicans did not heed the president. The unprecedented 99 weeks of extended benefits expired. Unemployment benefits returned to normal.
And last week, President Obama was declaring 2014 “a breakthrough year for America.” Remember that?
A groundbreaking new study explains why it was such a good year, Investors Business Daily reports: It was because Republicans ignored Obama’s advice, as 60% of the jobs gained last year were due to the cutoff of extended unemployment benefits.
I’ve said as much, but now others are saying so, too. . . .
