America’s Youngest Black Legislator Is a Pro-Life, Pro-God Breath of Fresh Air


Reported By Bryan Chai | January 13, 2019 at 12:24pm

I despise identity politics. To reduce one’s worth or meaning to an arbitrary feature or characteristic like skin color is the antithesis of progress. It’s no secret that leftists and Democrats love their identity politics. They’re always identifying things like racism or sexism under the cynical idea that it’ll help unite voters under their banner.

The truth of the matter is that identity politics, by definition, don’t unite. They divide.

Frankly, the content of one’s character and beliefs should always be more important than the color of one’s skin or ethnic background. Those are just some of the reasons why seeing a legislator like Caleb Hanna rise in prominence is so exciting.

Now, if I were a Democrat or a leftist, I might focus on the fact that he’s a young black man who’s won a seat on the West Virginia state legislature at the insanely young age of just 19. It’s one thing to describe Hanna by mentioning his skin color, there’s nothing wrong with that. The problem is when leftists begin defining people by their skin color.

That’s exactly why I instead want to focus on what makes Hanna such an exciting young lawmaker. And it has nothing to do with skin color.

According to a candidate profile provided to The Register Herald in May, the young Republican is made of the right stuff and stands for the right stuff.

“I’m proudly a Christian conservative and was raised on the belief that success is built with hard work, commitment and dedication – West Virginia values that continue to guide me today,” Hanna said.

According to the West Virginia MetroNews, Hanna won his seat in the state House District 44 by a nearly 2-to-1 margin in November’s general election. That win made him unique among American lawmakers, according to the Charleston Gazette-Mail.

“At that moment, Hanna became the youngest African-American in America to be elected to a state legislature, according to the National Council of State Legislatures. The results were 1,306 to 874 in the fragmented 44th District, which includes all of Webster County, half of Nicholas County and a couple of precincts in Randolph and Upshur counties.”

Hanna’s stances echo some of the hallmarks of modern conservatism.

“I support the WV Pro-Life movement and have been endorsed in the Republican Primary by West Virginians for Life. I also fully support the 2nd Amendment and our right to bear arms,” Hanna said in May. “I will be a passionate, effective, and conservative fighter for limited government, economic growth, and the Constitution.”

Another aspect of conservatism that Hanna is shaped by is his family upbringing.

“When I was only 10 years old, I heard my father say, ‘The American Dream is getting harder to find. Opportunities are becoming tougher to come by, and the simple idea, of by doing the right thing and working hard you can provide for your family, just really isn’t so simple anymore.’ From that moment, I knew I wanted to somehow help and serve the people of the great Mountain State.

“My goal is very simple, and that’s to bring A New Era of Leadership to West Virginia government. By implementing my youth and skills into government, I can provide a fresh new perspective to policy making that is not usual but is certainly effective,” Hanna said. “I have vision for opportunity that others typically miss, and West Virginia needs that now more than ever. I have a lot of pride for this state I’ve always called home.”

Compare Hanna’s rhetoric to some of the drivel pushed by young leftists like congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I’ve never been one to summarily dismiss someone because of their youth. I don’t care that Hanna and Ocasio-Cortez are so young for their respective positions. I care about what they have to say. Ocasio-Cortez says foolish things that threaten to disrupt the American democracy with her socialist and leftist ideals.

Hanna seems like a smart young man who wants to genuinely improve his country. That’s worth lauding and I can’t wait to see what he does next.

Election Judge Sees Fraud 7 Ft Away. Reports It. Dems Demand She Be Removed: Report


Reported By Kara Pendleton | November 12, 2018 at 3:38am

While “all eyes” are on Florida amidst accusations of potential election fraud, there may have been something fishy going on in St. Clair County, Illinois. According to The Gateway Pundit, this would not be the first time something like this has happened, either.

Peggy A. Hubbard posted a multi-tweet thread explaining what happened in the 2018 midterm elections, noting that she was an election judge. She began describing some of what she witnessed as she watched the polling station.

But that wasn’t all she saw.

Not only is it shocking that anyone would allow this, but it’s also shocking that someone would get in such a state before then going to vote.

Hubbard noted that she also caught a city council member just feet away doing no good. But it was Hubbard taking flack.

She also elaborated further on how she put a stop to what she witnessed. It appears that these actions may have led to the complaints filed against her and her removal as an election judge being sought.

Hubbard has also posted about other problems with the election in her state. These are from 2016.

Hubbard is no stranger to standing up for what she believes in or in being attacked for it. In 2015, she “compared the black community’s reaction to the shooting of Mansur Ball-Bey in North St. Louis outside a crack house with the shooting death of 9 year-old Jamyla Bolden in Ferguson,” according to The Gateway Pundit.

Her video rant went viral. And the typical name-calling ensued, including her being referred to as an “Uncle Tom.”

Service isn’t new to Hubbard, either. She is a veteran who served aboard the USS SAMUEL GOMPERS AD-37.

Hubbard’s Twitter feed is filled with hard-hitting posts about the left and Democrat shenanigans. She has no problem speaking out against the Democrat Plantation” and “Black Lives Matter,” contrary to what blacks in America are expected to do.

Candace Owens Introduces ‘Blexit’ Movement, Black Dems Fleeing Party To Join Republicans


Reported By Kara Pendleton | October 28, 2018 at 1:35pm

In a word play on Britain’s “Brexit” movement to leave the European Union and the growing #Walkaway movement encouraging Democrats to leave their party, conservative activist Candace Owens has launched a “Blexit” movement. It is all about encouraging blacks to exit the “Democrat plantation” and join the Republican party.

Owens long been a voice for black conservatives, but now she has taken it a step further. Breitbart reported on her big announcement of the movement.

“The Blexit movement will spend 2019 holding rallies in every major city in America the Democrats have destroyed. We are at long last ready to snatch a piece of this America dream,” Owens told the Young Black Leadership Summit in Washington on Saturday, according to Breitbart.

“We can fully recognize that this is, in fact, our country, that while Hillary Clinton viewed us as ‘super predators,’ CNN views us as ‘token negros who don’t read,’ Donald Trump views us as Americans.”

Just listen to this snippet of a speech Owens gave — with a bullhorn to carry her words on Saturday.

In conjunction with the announcement and the weekend’s speeches in Washington, Owens has launched a Blexit.com website, as well. Visitors to the website can learn more about the movement, listen to stories of those who have left the Democratic party for the Republican party, shop for merchandise, donate and learn about “Inconvenient Truths.” These “Truths” are explained as “Knowledge is the root of freedom. Learn more about America’s forgotten history.”

Leading up to the launch, Owens has been busy calling out black leaders and the talking heads at CNN, as well as preparing for Saturday’s Black State of the Union presentation. All of this has been shared by Owens are Twitter:

She has also explained the “Blexit” movement in her own words. Her column was published as an exclusive by Breitbart.

She began with her “coming out as a conservative” story. “When I uploaded my first video onto YouTube one year ago, I entitled it ‘Mom, Dad, I’m a Conservative.’ It was a two-minute satirical stab at the social exiling that many Americans face when they announce their conservatism to friends and family.

“Soon thereafter, I would discover that for black Americans, the punishment that awaits is far worse than any social exile: it is a full-court social lynching.”

That first video can be viewed below, for context:

From there in the article, Owens shared the horrible names she and other black conservatives have been called by black, liberals and the “liberal media.” They include things such as “porch monkey,” “Uncle Tom,” and, yes, it’s true and was captured on video, “white supremacist.”

Then Owens created a mic-dropping moment with her observation of what is happening in America.

“In fact, what many have misdiagnosed as political tension between two ideologically disparate groups is actually something far greater, far more deep-rooted, and much more likely to alter the trajectory of this country as we know it,” she wrote.

“Across America, black people are beginning to question political orthodoxy. We have been quietly building an ecosystem of free thinkers and at long last, the intellectual dam is breaking.

“This unique moment will come to be known as BLEXIT: the black exit from the Democrat party. For decades, the black community has been in an emotionally abusive relationship with the Democrat Party. Our fidelity to leftist politicians coupled with our false belief that a larger government might facilitate solutions, has led to the overall collapse of our families, neighborhoods, and incidentally, our futures.”

“BLEXIT is a national movement of minorities that have awakened to the truth. It is for those who have taken an objective look at our decades-long allegiance to the left and asked ourselves ‘what do we have to show for it?’”

An increasing number of blacks can be found on social media declaring their conservative views and sharing their stories about having left the Democratic party. This turn of events is damaging to Democrats, who bank on groups voting in blocks.

In November 2014, a Washington Post (behind a paywall) wheadline declared “Republicans are winning the support of black Americans,” based on election results. Then in September 2017, the paper ran another headline stating that, “Mostly black neighborhoods voted more Republican in 2016 than in 2012.”

Remember, in 2016 it was the election year of former first lady Hillary Clinton versus business tycoon Donald Trump. Trump won. And the black unemployment picture has been getting better ever since.

As Owens noted in her piece on Breitbart,”the tides are shifting.”

As more and more Americans feel alienated by the violence and vitriol of the left, as more and more black Americans discover how establishment media and the left truly view them, things will continue to change, and in Republicans’ favor.
