      Congrats to Jey and No Child! What a night! I felt fine after my lumpectomy this morning, so I went to hear Hillary Clinton’s book talk this evening. Word about Doug Jones came through 5 minutes before she came out. The place erupted. She gave major props to African American voters in AL who delivered big time, once again! Whew!

    Great GOTV from the black churches and the strong black voters’ response.

    It was a fantastic win where the black voters showed the whole white nation of white identity politics what real politics is all about.

    I cautioned about taking extremely seriously the DC and NY-based media reports that the campaign for Mr. Jones hadn’t reached out to African American voters. Local AL reporters had different/contradicting reports. Also, observing the actual campaign activities had different/contradicting reports. All in all, thanks to all the people who contributed to pushing a decent human being to victory – i love saying “Senator Doug Jones “

      White supremacists are very aware that the changing demographics in the United States will not make it easy for them to restore white supremacy. That’s why they are fighting so hard to pass laws that restrict immigration and laws that are aimed at suppressing the non-white votes.

      When you focus on Black women, you focus on the entire community. By and large, we are the ones who bring along the rest of the family, friends and anyone we talk to. I was fortunate in that voting at the first opportunity and voting in all elections was/is a no-brainer for my family, led by the examples of both parents. My job in the family, is to help explain the issues, the current controversies and to help sway if needed (I got all the family of my generation and below to vote for Barack instead of Hillary in the primary, but my mother, like many of her generation, could not believe that a Black man, especially such a young one, could win so she voted for HRC). When the general election rolled around, everyone was all in for Barack in 2008 and 2012.

    African American Voters Made Doug Jones a U.S. Senator in Alabama
    The state’s “black belt” made big turnout gains in support of the Democratic candidate, providing his margin of victory in the Senate special election in a deep red state.

    Marvin Gentry / Reuters
    VANN R. NEWKIRK II DEC 12, 2017

    …………………………

    The grassroots organizing in black communities by groups like local NAACP chapters was more muscular than it had even been in the 2016 general election. In the lead-up to Tuesday’s contest, voting-rights groups registered people with felonies, targeted awareness campaigns at people who might not have had proper ID, and focused specifically on knocking down the structures in place that keep black voters away from the polls. Their efforts immediately become a case study in how to do so in a region that has, since the Supreme Court’s 2013 Shelby County v. Holder decision curtailing the 1965 Voting Rights Act, become a bastion of new voter-suppression laws, including new voter-ID laws.

    President Donald Trump woke to a self-inflicted political disaster Wednesday morning that even he could not chalk up to fake news, after Republican Roy Moore crashed to defeat in the Alabama Senate race.

    Completely disregarding the advice of top Republicans, Trump had thrown himself unequivocally and comprehensively behind Moore — and so the deeply flawed Republican candidate’s upset loss on Tuesday is now his own.

    In an effort to save face on Wednesday, Trump insisted he had actually had it right all along — recalling his earlier support for incumbent Sen. Luther Strange in the primary.

    But the stunning win by Democrat Doug Jones in one of the nation’s most conservative states raised questions not just about Trump’s political acumen but also over whether his remarkable run, in which he crushed convention and defied political gravity, is beginning to run out of steam.

    Former reality TV star Omarosa Manigault Newman to leave White House

    The White House announced Wednesday that Manigault Newman has resigned from her post effective Jan. 20. She was assistant to the president and communications director for the Office of Public Liaison.

    “Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities,” press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders wrote in an email. “We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service.”

    Manigault Newman was one of few high-profile African Americans to support Donald Trump during his presidential campaign last year and was one of the most visible black aides in his administration.

    She has been fiercely loyal to Trump, whose decision to cast her as an alpha-female villain in the first season of “The Apprentice” more than a decade ago made her a reality television celebrity.
