Call NBC Nightly News:202-885-4200- Chuck Todd is Responsible for Reporting Facts not Lies, Talking Points, or Opinions

Updated August 16, 2015, since I made my call and wrote this post Chuck Todd has ben rewarded by NBC News for his stated position of reporting Republicans opinions as FACTS. He is the host of Meet the Press and will be hosting an umcoming MSNBC 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time show.

Democrats can't remain silent and let the Republican bias media and talking heads like Chuck Todd control the political narrative and debate.  A FALSE narrative that is generated to prove that Black Voters who elected two term President Obama DON'T MATTER. A FALSE narrative that makes a mockey of and tries to discredit the BlackLivesMatter movement.

America is one election away from becoming a more perfect nation. One election away from becoming GREAT. A nation who honors the Bill of Rights and 13th and 14th amendensts of equal protection and due process right of all of its citizens.

The hope and CHANGE that President Obama promised us in 2008 is so REAL and so close. In fact people like Todd are shaking in their boots in fear that all Americans will have equality in justice, employment, housing, education, and Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

Black or African-Americans Democrats don't let the noise of  Chuck Todd control your mind or your actions. Don't let Todd depress us and destroy our Hope for a better life for our children. Don't be quiet and let the racist NBC News decision to give Todd 2 shows and 6 hours a week to help the Republican Party and harm the Democratic Party go unchallenged or unnoticed.

BlackLivesMatter should be our battle cry as we call for Chuck Todd's termination. Use Twitter, Facebook, phone calls to NBC and every other method to STOP Todd and NBC from putting blacks back in CHAINS. Please answer Congressman Clyburn see something do some call to action.



Call NBC Nightly News:202-885-4200-  Chuck Todd is Responsible for Reporting Facts not Lies, Talking Points, or Opinions.

I responded to a CALL FOR ACTION to  take a few minutes to call NBC News and demand a public apology for Chuck Todd's on-air claim that it isn't the role of journalists to separate fact from fiction in political debates.

President Obama WON Election: Racist GOP Obamacare Vote Sending Fear not Experienced Since November 6, 2012

The day after the Novemember 6, 2012,  presidential election I retuned to OFA Norfolk office. I made the emotional video in this post with the HOPE that the election was over and that the GOP would finally put this nation first and accept the fact that Barack Obama was indeed the choice and duly elected president of the the greatest democracy on earth.  I was wrong.

In 2008 President Obama said that change wouldn't come easy in this country and the September 20, 2013 vote by the GOP to fund the government only if President Obama signature accomplishment The Affordable Health Care Act "Obamacare" is defunded proved that fact.

President Obama can't give in or even entertain this clearly RACIST position that the GOP and Speaker Boehner has taken. The poor, African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, the under educated, and women need President Obama to continue fighting for us and his agenda.

President Obama can’t get weary and give up and we can’t get weary and give up either. We must trust God and know that just like He delivered the children of Israel He will protect and deliver us too. We can't behave like the children of Isreal in Exodus 14:12 of King James Version of the Bible: “Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt; saying Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.”

In the meantime we need the Democratic Party to fight for us and President Obama as hard as the GOP are fighting CHANGE in the Whitehouse, politics, and President Obama.  High ranking politicans of all parties needs to called the GOP out for RACISM just like President Carter did during President Obama's 2008 term.

In addition to the GOP opposition being racist the GOP is using the budget and Obamacare to deny the passing of  a Immigration Reform bill. They know that Glenn Beck was correct when he said that Immigration Reform and/or the Hispanic and African-American vote would keep the Republican Party out of the White House and a minority in Congress for the next 30 or 40 years.

Senator Reed needs to use the nuclear option and do filibuster reform TODAY with deliberate haste.  We can't and will not wait for the 2014 election to move this nation FORWARD.  Call Harry Reid at 202-224-3542 record your message or conversation (tell live person that you are recording the call) and post it on CNN I-Report or on social media especially twitter.

God answered the prayers of our mothers and fathers and the slaves before us with President Obama victory. Therefore, we must vote in every election including the midterms as if it’s a presidential election year.  We must also stay actively engaged in the political process and hold members of Congress, governors, mayors, and the president of the United States ACCOUNTABLE!

Lastly, I want President Obama to know that he is loved by Jesus, my family, me, and millions in this country and around the world. As a Christian I believe that  the GOP hearts have been harden, just like God harden Pharaoh’s heart and the Egyptians pursued the children of Israel into the sea. (Chapter 14 of the book of Exodus)

I hope that the Republicans Party and many people who claim to be Christians but their actions don't support their claim will remember verse 4 of Exodus 14 - And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will pursue them. But I will gain glory for myself through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord.” 

President Obama won the 2012 presidential election and the Affordable Health Care bill is the law of the law it's now time for the Republican and Tea Party to accept that fact!

DAM_ IT Speaker Boehner - The America People Voted for Barack and Obamacare in 2008 and 2012!

I supported President Obama's re-election efforts by volunteering to go to Norfolk, VA at my own expense for a month. I volunteered because I believed in President Obama's vision that all Americans regardless of race deserve an equal opportunity to healthcare, employment, education...etc.

On November 6, 2012, many of the volunteers including me and voters supporting the president expressed our fear that Romney could win the election. In this raw video recorded on November 7, 2012, I expressed my feelings, fears, and joy, that the American voters had re-elected Barack Obama based on the content of his character and not the color of his skin as president of the United States of America.

My direct message to Speaker Boehner:  Although it will mean that you will no longer be Speaker please put this nation first and abandon your plan to shut down the federal government in order to deny an African-American president his signature accomplishment “Obamacare.”

We can't play with the slippery slope of trying to overturn a law that the Supreme Court has ruled constitutional. Some very intelligent people have accurately compared the GOP tactics to events leading up to Civil War of 1861-1865.

No US Military Action in Syria without United Nation's Support

The world doesn’t trust America and/or our intelligence community. The War in Iraq and Snowden cases are direct evidence to the world that American intelligence is at best suspect and at worst flawed. Therefore, our National Security team especially Susan Rice must/should present a clear and convincing case to the United Nations before taking  any military action in Syria.
