AN INCONVENIENT MAN

Who is Daniel Cameron? I’ll bet you’ve never heard of him. There’s a good reason for that, because he scares the bejesus out of the left; here’s why. Cameron is 34, attractive, articulate, an attorney, a conservative, and…wait for it…he’s black. Cameron is Kentucky’s newly elected Attorney General. He is Kentucky’s first African-American statewide office holder and the first Republican elected to a state office in 70 years. Why have you not heard of him? Because you’re not supposed to. Cameron’s transformational win represents a frightening trend to the Democrat party and their media wing. Click on the link below to see his touching campaign video, called Lincoln.

The paper of record in Kentucky is the Courier-Journal, a USA Today publication. They savaged Cameron, calling him everything from an Uncle Tom to a closet racist. If there is one thing that scares Democrats to death, it’s the nightmare scenario of an appealing, conservative African-American candidate. Let me clarify: when I say Democrats, I mean those running for office and those in the corporate-media complex who are a wing of the Democrat party, like the Courier-Journal. They ran a hit piece disguised as news about Cameron’s Lincoln ad.

Using an old press trick, the so-called reporter quoted a university professor who is black to attack Cameron: “Trump’s comments about race and black figures have made it difficult for black Republicans and conservatives to tout his virtues to other blacks.” This is obviously pure opinion, but it’s there to damage Cameron. This is a twofold trick. The reporter finds people critical of Cameron to say what the reporter would like to say himself but can’t, because he must feign objectivity. Then he finds a black university professor to send the message that Cameron is not really simpatico with the black community.

Another Kentucky newspaper, the Lexington Herald Leader took their fury against Cameron to a vile new low. They published a disgusting cartoon depicting Cameron with big lips holding the white-sheet KKK robe worn by President Trump. Of course, they swept any criticism aside, calling this trash “political opinion” or “satire.” To paraphrase Michelle Obama, they go low and then they go lower.

Recent polling really scares the left. Pollster John Zogby, a Democrat stalwart, found a 27% approval rating for President Trump among African-Americans. The Emerson and Rasmussen polls have Trump’s approval ratings at 34% among black voters. According to the Trump campaign, his support is growing.

Cameron’s win should have been a cause for celebration. A black man wins state-wide office in a former Confederate state, a sign of racism receding and a harbinger of the long-hoped-for end to racial bigotry. But no, Cameron’s victory is a threat. If Democrats lose a significant chunk of the African-American vote, they’re in big trouble. They can’t allow it. They will deploy every raciest trope in their ugly playbook. Keep an eye out. If they continue to lose African-American support, in desperation they’ll get even meaner. And that means we are winning.

BIG TROUBLE FOR DEMS?

         CODGERTATING: WHEN OLD GUYS THINK.

Support for the bogus impeachment of President Trump is dropping. Michigan Rep. Brenda Lawrence (D) recently said that she no longer saw any “value” in the proceedings. Note that Lawrence is the African-American Representative of an African-American district. It’s rare for Democrats to break ranks, but Lawrence did. The question is, why? Congressmen run for election every two years and if they want to keep their jobs, they’d better know what the people in their district are thinking. Could it be that support for Trump is growing in the black community, making impeachment unpopular? African-American unemployment is at historic lows, and the latest Rasmussen Reports poll shows Trump with a 32% approval rating among black voters. Illegal immigration is a signature Trump issue, and no group is hurt more by illegal immigration than African-Americans.

But Lawrence quickly recanted and jumped back aboard the impeachment express. I’m betting she got a heated call or two from the House Speaker or one of her lieutenants. If Democrat support in the African-American community is slipping, they can’t let it get out. If I’m correct and polls in the black sectors maintain or continue to trend in Trump’s favor, expect to hear the words racist, white supremacist, Klansman and Nazi with sickening frequency to scare blacks back to the Democrat Party. They can’t afford to lose this traditionally Democrat voting block. If Republicans can get 20% of the black vote, the Democrats are doomed.
