A black GOP lawmaker in the House of Representatives says the Congressional Black Caucus has declined his efforts to become a member.In a statement to The Post on Thursday, Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) expressed his disappointment about being excluded from the CBC, which inducted other freshman lawmakers into the group six months ago.“The Congressional Black Caucus has a stated commitment to ensuring Black Americans have the opportunity to achieve the American Dream,” the 42-year-old lawmaker, who represents the Naples area, began.“As a newly elected Black Member of Congress, my political party should not exempt me from a seat at the table dedicated to achieving this goal.

Now, what could the democrats be afraid of by letting this Republican into the group? Another opinion they may agree with? Someone who wants to actually improve the lives of his constituents? Is the CBC a private group with an invite-only membership? Are they afraid of a diversity of ideas and approaches to the issues?

The CBC should be OUTLAWED. These individuals are elected by voters to work on their behalf, not to be a select group of White hating, America hating, Republican hating racists, which is exactly what they are. Congress-people should have NO RIGHT to have a BLACK only, Democrat only so-called group. It borders on a cult. Someone needs to should file a lawsuit to break up this group. The ostracized Congressman can do so.

Why would he want to join a racist organization? I suspect he really doesn't want to join but wanted to show them to be the anti-American group that they are.

They aren't a black caucus. They are a Communist black caucus. The good representative from Florida would be wise to not associate with them. They have an agenda, and he would not want any part of it.

The article comments that there have been Republican members of the Congressional Black Caucus in the past, what it does not mention is that they were only admitted AFTER a public fuss was made about their exclusion. AS for why Rep. Donalds wants to be a member, I would bet it is so that he can eliminate articles which claim that since the CBC unanimously takes a position that is the position of all Blacks of any significance take.

The CBC is racist. They use racism to extract money from stupid, or deranged, people. They should not get a dime of taxpayer money for CBC matters, and should be shunned.

Supporters of President Donald Trump discovered early in his tenure that whenever he claimed that the news media had gotten something wrong about him or his administration, he was nearly always proven right. Eventually.Vindication didn’t always come quickly or easily, but it did come, even as the same media continued to hammer on the false narrative, such as the ‘Russian collusion’ lie: Even after congressional probes and a special counsel investigation found zero evidence of said collusion, many in the mainstream media wouldn’t let the narrative go.

Israel's parliament narrowly voted 60-59 in favour of the new government on Sunday and shortly afterwards, Bennett was sworn in as prime minister. Bennett, a former ally of Netanyahu turned bitter rival, will now preside over a diverse and fragile coalition comprised of eight parties with deep ideological differences. Netanyahu sat silently during the vote.

The White House clarified Sunday that President Joe Biden isn't doing any 'swaps' of cyber criminals with Moscow – after Biden appeared to take at face value a proposal floated by Vladimir Putin to extradite any U.S. ransom hackers to Russia in exchange for sending any Russian hackers to the U.S. Biden entertained an idea Putin floated in a TV interview that aired Sunday about extraditing 'criminals' who engaged in ransom hacking against either the U.S. or Russia when he was asked about it at a press conference. It was Putin's response to a top concerning national security issue Biden is planning to raise at their summit next week.

Police retirements have risen by 45 percent in the past year, with officers opting out of forces across the country amid Black Lives Matter demonstrations that fueled anti-cop rhetoric. The alarming statistic was revealed by the Police Executive Research Forum on Sunday, with the organization also revealing that resignations rose by 18 percent during the same twelve month period. 'It is an evolving crisis,' Chuck Wexler, the organization's executive director, told The New York Times, adding that police forces are also struggling to attract new recruits. Anti-police sentiment was sparked by the murder of George Floyd by white cop Derick Chauvin in Minneapolis on Memorial Day.

COVID shutdowns championed by U.S. governors and D.C. bureaucrats are responsible for destroying nearly 40% of small businesses since the virus was unleashed on the world—and we know now that it was for little to no damned good reason. A study by the Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences revealed recently that shutdown orders made little to no difference in COVID’s impact. From the abstract of the study: “Previous studies have claimed that shelter-in-place orders saved thousands of lives, but we reassess these analyses and show that they are not reliable. We find that shelter-in-place orders had no detectable health benefits, only modest effects on behavior,
