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 We will discuss live this Saturday how these groups no longer represent the communities they claim.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!!!!!
In an exclusive interview on The Hutchinson Report Newsmaker Hour, former Congressional Black Caucus Chair Congresswoman Barbara Lee takes a hard look at the pitfalls and prospects for President Obama's reelection. Lee tells what the President must do to win over independents and fire up wavering Democrats.
For a little over a week now, I have been seeing the phrases Hands Up and Black Lives Matter everywhere and it has really pissed me off. You have had members of the Congressional Black Caucus make 'hands up, don't shoot' motion on House floor, five St. Louis Rams players stood with their hands raised in a show of compassion and solidarity for Ferguson protesters and Hollywood’s and Hollywood-Backed #BlackOutBlackFriday Boycott. If Michael Brown was on his way home from school and he was shot down in the middle of the street because he was minding his own business then I would be just as outraged. That was not the scenario…he made the conscious decision to walk into a gas station, brazenly steal some cigars, and assaulted the employee who confronted him. He walks down the middle of the street and when Officer Darren Brown tells him to move to the sidewalk he wants to get into a confrontation with him. Those are the set of events that got him killed not being black. Now there is a nationwide movement that condones his behavior. If his life mattered, where were his parents to put a stop to his behavior before it escalated to him getting himself killed? Why didn’t the stepdad step up as a man who took on the job of parent and made sure Michael Brown knew “hands off what isn’t yours”? Instead you have them parading around with Al Sharpton crying about justice not being served because their son is dead. I do think it is unfortunate that Michael Brown lost his life over some cigars but I have adopted the following philosophy “when you commit a crime, you should always expect death to be on the table.” Tell me where I am wrong this Saturday from 2pm - 4pm
*The Walrus and the Elephants: John Lennon's Years of Revolution, James A. Mitchell.
In late 1971 John Lennon left London and pop stardom behind and moved to New York City, eager to join a youth movement rallying for social justice and an end to the Vietnam War. Lennon was embraced by radicals and revolutionaries, the hippies and Yippies at odds with the establishment. Settling in Greenwich Village, the former Beatle was soon on the front lines of the antiwar movement, championing causes and inspiring solidarity—and suspicion. Seen as a savior by a generation in need of cultural heroes, Lennon was just as passionately hounded by a government anxious to silence enemies within its borders.The Walrus and the Elephants is told by the unlikely cast of friends, among them the members of Elephant's Memory, who were some of the few who got to know the man behind the Beatle. Exclusive interviews include writer and feminist leader Gloria Steinem; Congressional Black Caucus cofounder Ron Dellums; "Chicago Seven" veteran Rennie Davis; immigration attorney Leon Wildes; and legendary poet-activist John Sinclair, whose imprisonment for marijuana—ten years for two joints—kicked off Lennon's American journey. It was a busy year of making music and controversial TV appearances, allies and enemies. It was a time of great change in America, one that saw the end of the movements of the sixties, the beginning of a new era. The Walrus and the Elephants is a look back at that time and at the John Lennon who joined the revolution, through the eyes of those who dreamed, rallied, and fought alongside him.
In the news this week, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announces his resignation.
