It looks like Paul Ryan is in trouble with the Congressional Black Caucus for the statements he made regarding the tailspin of culture within the inner city. The Congressional Black Caucus has gotten their panties in a bunch again that somebody who doesn't look like them is speaking the truth and shaming the Devil. I made a comment on Facebook that when we were children we had a saying "I can talk about my momma but you can't talk about my momma." If your momma smoked crack then I can call her a crackhead. What did I say that would be incorrect? We will discuss live this Saturday how these groups no longer represent the communities they claim. We will also take a closer look at how the progressive movement has destroyed all communities (two parent households/marriage) and a deeper look at the true agenda of the LGBT movement and my Obamacare experience

TONIGHT on the Dr C Robert Jones Situation Report
I never imagined that we would reach a point in this country where facts would be ignored on a national level. We seem to have reached it with the Michael Brown case.
As I watched the spectacle of our elected official in the Congressional Black Caucus stand on the house floor and use the debunked “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture, I realized that black America has reached a point of no return.
King Yashua the minister of defense will boldly outline the much needed overthrow of all of Black America's institutions, pacifically the Political, Religious, Financial, Educational and Especially, the structure in which we defend ourselves!!!!!

Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama. During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.
At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown, gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office. The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk. Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.
African-American Firsts: Government
Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.
State elected official: Alexander Lucius Twilight, 1836, the Vermont legislature.
Governor (appointed): P.B.S. Pinchback served as governor of Louisiana from Dec. 9, 1872-Jan. 13, 1873, during impeachment proceedings against the elected governor.
U.S. Representative: Joseph Rainey became a Congressman from South Carolina in 1870 and was reelected four more times.
U.S. Senator: Hiram Revels became Senator from Mississippi from Feb. 25, 1870, to March 4, 1871, during Reconstruction.
