    African-Americans are failing to vote at the robust levels they did four years ago in several states that could help decide the presidential election, creating a vexing problem for Hillary Clinton as she clings to a deteriorating lead over Donald J. Trump with Election Day just a week away.

    As tens of millions of Americans cast ballots in what will be the largest-ever mobilization of early voters in a presidential election, the numbers have started to point toward a slump that many Democrats feared might materialize without the nation’s first black president on the ticket.

    The reasons for the decline appear to be both political and logistical, with lower voter enthusiasm and newly enacted impediments to voting at play. In North Carolina, where a federal appeals court accused Republicans of an “almost surgical” assault on black turnout and Republican-run election boards curtailed early-voting sites, black turnout is down 16 percent. White turnout, however, is up 15 percent. Democrats are planning an aggressive final push, including a visit by President Obama to the state on Wednesday.

    African-American vote currently not solid enough, Obama says

    Advance voting data shows a dip from the record-smashing African-American voter participation of 2012.

    U.S. President Barack Obama has pointed to early-voting data that’s prompting jitters for Democrats in key swing states.


    FORT LAUDERDALE, UNITED STATES—U.S. President Barack Obama has sounded the alarm about an apparent decline in black voter turnout in this
    election, pointing to early-voting data that’s now prompting jitters for Democrats in key swing states.

    Advance voting data shows a dip from the record-smashing participation in 2012 where African-Americans made history by surpassing whites in turnout percentage.

    The president put the current situation bluntly. “The African-American vote right now is not as solid as it needs to be,” he said in a radio interview that aired Wednesday.

    He described the conversations going on in the barber shops and beauty salons of black neighbourhoods — “We love Barack, we especially love Michelle, and so it was exciting, and now we’re not excited as much” — then urged voters to help cement his legacy by electing his preferred successor.

    Remember I said one time to judge things that people are saying or campaigning for with a ruler of a question, "In what way will this diminish our liberty?

    Simple truth is paramount: No one can use the right judgement if there is no Truth to be forewarned in order to make a wise decision. Who is the proven liar holding personal actions to benefit themselves financially in millions upon millions of dollars, hundreds of millions. It is the Clintons. Hillary if elected will be indicted to stand trial for National Security loss. She is going to be brought up on charges anyway, elected or not.

    There are over fifteen charges lining up against her. Selling her office of Secretary of State is just one for money to do favors. How about money to give Russia a 20% right to our uranium. Do you know what uranium can be used for? Breaking it into use for their nuclear bombs if they choose?! Do we Trust them? Hillary does. Especially when it pays-- Pay to Play. They give, Hillary deals them in to play on her table.

    It's not about e-mails on insecure servers, it's about the loss of National Security because of the servers that had no more security for being hacked than gmail. Five nations have been identified for obtaining information from those emails on those servers. The FBI determined she was "reckless". Is that who you are going to vote for? How does that work for your Security? It threatens your liberty/secrets.

    When the FBI Director admitted that the Secretary of State was reckless with our national secrets, but she was not going to be brought up on charges, The inner FBI community of advisors and agents it was said in the news, "were staging a call for mutiny in the agency". He, Comey is now being looked over for his own betrayal of FBI standards all the way to the Justice department. All of it a collusion.

    TRUMP APPEAL TO BLACK VOTERS

    D'Souza film on Dems' 'racist history' to reopen in 500 theaters
    Published: 08/22/2016 at 9:48 PM

    NEW YORK – Just as Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump begins to court black voters, Dinesh D’Souza’s blockbuster film recounting the Democratic Party’s history of racism, “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party,” is gearing up for a fall election thrust, reopening in 500 theaters nationwide in September and October.

    In an interview with WND, D’Souza expressed enthusiasm for the Trump campaign’s effort to appeal to black voters.

    “This is a first for a GOP candidate in modern times,” D’Souza said. “It’s important for Trump and the Republican Party to break the virtual monopoly Democrats have had on the black vote, but also to explode the moral capital of the Democratic Party.”
    Beginning with a speech in Dimondale, Michigan, Aug. 19, Trump has been actively courting black voters to leave the Democratic Party, citing the worsening conditions for blacks in big cities run by Democrats for decades and asking, “What do you have to lose?”
    In Fredericksburg, Virginia, last week, Trump sounded themes that echo D’Souza’s film.

    “The GOP is the party of Abraham Lincoln, and I want our party to be the home of the African-American voter once again,” Trump said. “I want a totally inclusive country and I want an inclusive party.”

    He said Democrats “claim to be for the underdog – for women and minorities – while in reality the Democratic Party has been systematic oppressors of underdogs, including African-Americans.”

    D’Souza commended Trump for his recent speeches and urged the campaign to utilize his movie.

    “Our film, ‘Hillary’s America,’ makes the argument the Democratic Party has oppressed African-Americans by citing historical facts in depth to destroy the progressive myth that since Abraham Lincoln the parties have switched sides,” D’Souza said.
    ===================================
    If she is Indicted then her running mate would be President. The object of this particular year of voting is to keep the loose mouth , loose hair Racist Republican off that trigger.

    I read on the internet and watched last night a youtube that a Black Brother posted. He had a far amount of views. His hyperbole was based on this movie and it's impact he said it had on him. He started rating the quality, and how much it influenced him...

    The movie states Democrats held us in slavery. It never mentions so did the Republicans. The author on youtube stated when you write the history books, or make the movie you get to tell and show it in your favor. ( I doubt the brother watched that one hour rant the author made.)

    The Republican author / film maker is on a vendetta.. he is a convicted felon, can't vote, and was locked up for campaign contribution violations.

    "The movie states Democrats held us in slavery. It never mentions so did Republicans." Maybe, but it was Republicans who have fought and created laws that took out of slavery, out of bigoted laws, and into politics, white collar professions etc. And when Hillary says she is going to create more jobs and put more money into the hand of poverty, all she says for her plan is because she is going to invest in the people but doesn't say how, and why didn't she do it already, being in politics for 30 years.

    Trump says he is going cut down on government regulations on business so small business and big business can operate in a prosperous way and cut taxes on big business so they will build jobs in America. It is the multitude of working people who come up with the most taxes for the government to work on. Not job robbing exile of businesses somewhere else.

    Both Democrats and Republicans have stated this so many times over the decades. Nothing new in what is stated.
    They always say they will :
    If Trump wins. More than jobs will be denied African Americans. The civil rights bill, voting rights and more government neglect will prevail with a Republican President, House and Senate. American politics and the nation as a whole is totally built on mockery. Ridiculing Blacks more over the centuries than anyone. Using cartoon distorted caricatures, advertisement, false reports of statistical information and such. Come Tuesday, I will cast my vote.

    The movie about Hillary, I saw it in the Redbox machine and was actually initially shocked, I then watched several youtube video's about the movie maker / writer of the book that the movie is based on.

    If Hillary is indicted, the Vice President becomes President. The Republicans I believe even those who backed off publically supporting Trump. Is in on this ruse. It is a ruse ( and it is working ) to fool the Media and Americans in general. They want Trump and this is New Republican trickery.

    They need him in, they want him in. He will be easily manipulated because he needs them and they need a patsy. To further cripple the economy and further dismantle any advancement Democrats have made or established over the years.
