Trump is Putin’s puppet

A presidential puppet is a president whose actions, ideas, ways and means are controlled by someone else. United States President Donald Trump, in my opinion, has his policy strings pulled by puppeteer Vladimir Putin, the Russian president.

Black America is ‘pro-peace,’ but its politicians are not

Black America is ‘pro-peace,’ but its politicians are not

On the world stage, the United States has declared itself above the law, as if it had already completed the conquest of the globe. Thousands of US troops are implanted on Syrian soil, the better to arm, train and protect the Islamist jihadists that act as foot soldiers for US imperialism in the region. Washington has […]

Black cops’ lives don’t matter to the left

As the New York City Police Department (NYPD) and the nation’s law enforcement community prepare to pay final respects to assassinated NYPD officer Miosotis Familia, it is important to put her death and reaction thereto in perspective. It’s an all-too-familiar story. A cop kills a Black man. Before all the facts are known, there are […]

Donald Trump isn’t America’s only embarrassment

Black athletes are losing millions every year

SHARON MALLORY GUEST COMMENTARY I saw disturbing news recently regarding Clinton Portis, who played nine years in the National Football League and earned approximately $43.1 million during that time.

Maybe it’s time for ‘The Gantt Report Live’

“The Gantt Report Live” is not a television show. But it should be and it will be – if I feel like putting the show together.

When Obama’s White House attacked the NBCC, Part 2

This would be the start of a pro-business movement knocking down the majority of President Obama’s environmental and regulatory platforms. His view of an economic agenda for the Black middle class was expanding welfare and Medicaid […]

Nancy Pelosi sends Democrats over a cliff

Nancy Pelosi sends Democrats over a cliff

Nancy Pelosi, leader of Congressional Democrats, should be ought of a job. Pelosi has few political victories to speak of but she does raise money, lots of money. That is the only reason she is still the House leader. She is a wealthy woman with access to other rich people who in turn keep party […]

Left’s ‘death party’ rhetoric may get someone killed

Notwithstanding the recent assassination attempt against Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., and other Republican members of Congress, the vile, hateful, and violence-inciting rhetoric of Democrats and their friends on the left continues. Some examples: •House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., “hundreds of thousands of people will die” if the Republican health bill passes. •Entertainer Johnny Depp: […]
