By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) Last month I wrote a column titled, “Russia Is Winning the War for American Minds.” In that piece, I discussed how Russia had unleashed a psychological operations program in the U.S. to destabilize our government and our various institutions; they have been phenomenally successful with their operation.

By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) Sometimes I wonder if I was a black Democrat, a retired black athlete or a black comedian would it be easier for me to get a meeting with the leadership of the Republican Party or harder. As a life-long, die hard black Republican, it seems almost impossible to get […]

By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) As I often say, weak people take strong positions on weak issues. Look no further than the lying mainstream media that has willfully ignored the context surrounding President Trump and his alleged Russian connections.

By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) Republicans haven’t shown any serious efforts of making blacks an integral part of their party since the Nixon administration of the ’60s and ’70s.

By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) As we prepare to celebrate the beginning of Black History Month this week, the Republican Party continues to show its ineptness in cultivating “real” relationships with the black community.

By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) Blacks voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton. Republicans engaged in voter suppression tactics nationwide. Clinton won the popular vote. Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor Steve Bannon is a bigot. Senator Jeff Sessions, Trump’s pick for Attorney General, is a racist.

By Raynard Jackson (NNPA Newswire Columnist) Last week, I was forced to call out the radical liberal group the NAACP, or as l like to call them the “National Association for the Advancement of Certain People.” Obviously, that column didn’t get through to the members of the Congressional “Democratic” Black Caucus (CBC).
