“Black Republican Trailblazer Awards”: A "Separate and Unequal Event"

Rivers have often been the source of great inspiration in literature.  The very power of the Creator is witnessed in the ebb and flow of these pristine waters.  The farmer reaches his hands into the very fertile earth and blesses the Nations with the fruit born of the river's seed.  Beyond the natural expression, rivers have been the symbols of time elapsed never to be recovered.  A painful sense of loss or even lives passing into oblivion.  In Washington, DC, two rivers flow: the Anacostia and the Potomac. The Anacostia has always represented the despair felt by the poor, the hopelessness of the miseducated and those forgotten in dreams deferred.  The Potomac has always been the privilege of wealth, the luxury of networking in ivory towers and the expectation of the laurels of nobility.   Rivers divide men of war and men of peace.  When it comes to Black Trailblazers, a river divides two men in honoring great men and women in Republican history.  The violent ebb and flow of wills have left one alone in awarding the least, the last, and the lost and the other with the might of the Nation's Executive Office to award the well-heeled and well-connected.  The unfortunate result of this mighty battle of wills has left many worthy candidates without merit.  In a month of reverence for the lives of Frederick Douglass, Carter G. Woodson and a host of modern greats, Trailblazers have been made "separate and unequal".

On one side of the river, a man stands isolated from the herd.  Some believe that he is arrogant and woefully unyielding of credit to others for their past labors in establishing and promoting the “Black Republican Trailblazer Awards”.  None will even question his sincere efforts or his intellectual property rights.  However, he's not a team player.  He has often said in public that the only way that the GOP will recognize a Black Republican is if they are a Socialist - Democrat.  He has questioned the lack of a black agenda by Black Republicans that seem naked although they proclaim imperial robes as they stumble behind President Donald Trump hoping that they can convince him that they have direct access to Chicago gang members.  He has wondered aloud how the best can be considered for governmental posts and none of them happen to be Black.  He has often questioned why such great Black Republicans like Kay Cole James, former Director of the United States Office of Personnel Management under George W. Bush, and Frederick D. McClure, Chief Executive of the Bush Library Foundation, are not called upon more for advice and counsel amongst public policy mavericks.  He idolizes them so, admiring their sacrifice for God and country.

Yeah, Ken, But!!!!  You don't know how condescending and arrogant he is.  He makes comments like this:

"It wasn’t until I created the “Black Republican Trailblazer Awards” five years ago that anything meaningful was ever done under the Republican label to acknowledge Black History Month.  Now the party is even trying to steal that from Black folks by way of a lawsuit; which most of you are aware of."

Yeah, he's a cocky somebody now, isn't he?  However, how many Trailblazer Awards were there before this little man stepped forward?  Or here's a better question: How many years did it take before the people he admired choose the comforts of power, wealth, and influence of the Party and walked away from him?  The challenged founder of the “Black Republican Trailblazer Awards” perseveres even as the man on the opposing riverbank influences Black Republicans to avoid him like the plague and stay with the team.  What could the founder possibly do for you?  Simply, what can a Black Republican that seeks to honor Black Republicans that have been overlooked and forgotten possibly do for you?  Ms. Imanginary Name, please bring me a checkbook and let's see what it takes to divide and conquer.

On the other side of the river stands a man that believes Party matters.  As more and more Blacks are moving towards a conservative voting perspective and away from the Socialist - Democrat plantation, the GOP wants to show that it can be a place that honors heritage while pursuing the best course of legacy.  Even more encouraging is the revelation that 14% of Black men voted for President Trump.  Do they have an official plan of action to help convert individuals from Trump supporters to becoming Republicans?  I doubt it.  Understand that this is the calamity of not being prepared for what you wish.  The man on this side of the river understands that this is not merely a luncheon for elders to consort, pictures to be taken, a few rehearsed words to be spoken and remembrances archived.  This is a stake for the political future of the Party.  We know that the Party, or at least most of its membership, does not believe in identity politics.  We are all Americans.  However, it doesn't take a civil engineer to recognize that there is a breach in the Socialist - Democrat Party dam.  A "Black" Republican should have only one interest: the Party.

But Ken, we have an Outreach Center in Detroit.

OK.  Back to the essay.

During the Thursday, February 2, 2017, RNC African American Leaders Update Call, GOP leaders joyfully spoke of their plans for Black History Month.  Kay Coles James, a woman who was to be honored this year by that arrogant little guy on the other side of the river but declined so that her infamous Gloucester Institute in Gloucester, VA would act as host of the Republican Party's “Black Republican Trailblazer Awards”, is taking a leadership role.  Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel will be called on to deliver words of encouragement.  While at Holly Knolls, those Blacks attending will be responsible for preparing a "Black Agenda" to present to President Trump.  I suppose Chicago gang leader delegates will be invited as well.  It seems so well planned and inclusive of Republicans of note and power.

When will this take place?

February 24 - 26, 2017.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm!  Why is that Renaissance Weekend Date so important?

It is important because most Republicans--black, white, brown or yellow--will be at the National Harbor in Prince George's County, MD for the Conservative Political Action Conference.  Yes, CPAC 2017!  Their dates are February 22 - 25, 2017.  Whom will be attending CPAC?  Here's a brief list: President Trump; Vice President Mike Pence; Mike Flynn; Stephen Bannon; Dr. Ben Carson; former Senator Jeff Sessions; former GOP Chairman Reince Preibus; Mike Pompeo; K. T. McFarland; Ryan Zinke; Scott Pruitt; Tom Price and Rick Perry.  So Renaissance Weekend is important to the GOP?  By the way, it's only two hours and forty minutes away from National Harbor.  Might be longer at rush hour.  Start early when you choose Renaissance Weekend over CPAC 2017.  Tweet me.  Let me know how that works out.

Ladies and gentlemen, there are two wills that make “Black Republican Trailblazer Awards” a "separate and unequal event".  Why must one travel 160 miles outside of Washington, DC to receive an honor for being forgotten in time and space by noble, wealthy and influential Republicans?  What of the Republican that knocked on doors in the hot sun and cold bitter wind to encourage urban dwellers to vote for "the guy that wanted to round all black people up and send them back to Africa".  Not true but, the legend lives on.  It doesn't seem clear that the Republican Party has chosen worthy candidates for honoring at the Republican Party's “Black Republican Trailblazer Awards”.  The arrogant man on the other side of the river, however, has selected: Maxine Blake, Ohio Civil Rights Icon; Gerald Boyd, Sr., President, DB Consulting; Richard Finley, COO, Finley Group, Inc.; Alan Inman, President, Global Peace Foundation; and Robert Wallace, CEO, Bithgroup Technologies, Inc.  Well, this may change depending on the power of the whisper and checkbook of the well-heeled and well-connected man on the other side of the river.  I suggest that the noble elite avails their strength and that the isolated one reaches out beyond the confines of his pride and unify this effort.  There is nothing more embarrassing than having to explain to people why Republicans waited almost 200 years to begin practicing "separate and unequal".  

There is room for you both on this mighty river.

Kim Burrell: The Left Sends A Warning Shot to Those That Believe in the Holy Bible

Many on the right are celebrating, with warrant, the ascendancy of Donald J. Trump to the Presidency of the United States of America.  There was a clarion call for Evangelicals and the Faithful to stand as patriots for the cause of liberty and pursuit of justice.  Even Black pastors and ministers broke ranks with the tyrannical clasp of the Democrat Party and allied powerfully with the Trump campaign.  The result was overwhelming.  President-elect Trump won 30 states and garnered 306 of 538 electoral votes.  The gauntlet had been dropped.  The progressives had lost the final battle of conquest to fundamentally transform America into a colony of the United Nations.  The loss was stinging and left them broken in spirit, seeking an imaginary physical "foe" to blame.  The wounded progressive warriors were denied.  In their defeat, they became more resolute.  While many have turned to Trump's Twitter, Russia's Illusion-ed Hack and Senator Charles Schumer's Charge Up Little Bighorn Against Trump's Cabinet Picks, the real war is being played out before our eyes by those that understand that their days in power are few and their ideological conquest wanes as the governments, old and new, transition.  The Party that preserves genocide in Urban America through abortion would do whatever is necessary to advance their Marxist agenda, destined to spiritually and Constitutionally destroy the Nation.  Nothing and no one would be sacred.

Jazz Gospel Singer Kimberly Burrell is not a neophyte in the world of social politics.  Unfortunately, in the bastions of progressive influence, the entertainment and religious industries have actors that deny the principles of Faith.  Each industry seeks to control massive populations through song, dance and drama while spreading the tenets of liberal doctrine.  Many God-fearing believers in the fields, often without safety net, find themselves perilously tight rope walking through issues of abortion, marriage, sex and governance in order to maintain their most important commodity: a paycheck.  Telling a progressive that you believe in the absolute Word of God, whether in a recording studio or a liberal seminary, sets you apart from the reins of profit.  Despite your gentle assertions that you love everyone, just as God does, your forewarning that sin separates one from God makes you an enemy of state.  It makes you an enemy of the political groups that have massive influence, access to voluminous donations and funding--both governmental and non-governmental--and the favor of "community leaders".  The pay for play that is most often identified in the politics of the Nation's Capital is more sacredly observed in the studios of Los Angeles and New York.  In each performance industry, it is becoming increasingly more unlikely to find Bible believers maintaining their acceptance and promotion of the Word of God.  The risks of Faith outweigh the rewards of compromise.  

Burrell has never run for or been elected to public office, she has spent her adult life in two very politically sensitive worlds: entertainment and religion.  She pursued not only success in the music recording world but, speaking of President-elect Donald Trump, reality television.  The Houston songstress was chastised by members of the Church of God In Christ (COGIC) denomination for choosing the secular marketplace to display her Godly gifts for material gain.  COGIC is a pre-dominantly black Pentecostal Holiness Christian denomination that re-affirmed it’s stance against homosexuality during the summer of 2012.  This was done after President Barack Obama, in May 2012, endorsed same sex marriage in lieu of his earlier opposition because of his faith in God.  Burrell challenged the Black Church that she might sing to secular audiences.  Her explanation: “She wants to reach more people with a broader message and church folks need to be more open-minded.”  Her complaint against the COGIC body of "being too religious" justified her using talents to change the world.  Burrell discovered church liberals are more lax in allowing individuals to crossover into the secular marketplace.  However, the "holy order" of the tyrants on the Left are as amenable to Bible believers crossing back as a mob boss is of accepting a "rat fink turncoat" in his ranks.  Believing in God is a sin against the Leftist agenda and it will not be tolerated.  There is a special place in "Hell-on-Earth" for people that say they believe in the Word of God over the Socialist-Democrat Party Platform.  The costs are immense and the price paid is swift.

This brings us to three actors on this great liberal political theater drama.  Burrell, Albertina Walker Female Vocalist of the Year at the Stellar Awards and a Dove Award Winner, is one of the most prominent singers in recording industry history.  While never possessing a Diamond RIAA Certified record,  in an interview on XM Satellite Radio, Harry Connick, Jr. said of Burrell, "if she's not the greatest musical mind I've ever been around, she's certainly up at the top of the list."  She's a devout Christian and Senior Eldress/Overseer-Bishop of The Love & Liberty Fellowship Pentecostal Overcoming Holy Church, since 2010.  

Our second character is Viriginia, Beach, Virginia singer, rapper, songwriter and record producer Pharrell Lanscilo Williams better known as "Pharrell".  Winner of 10 Grammies, if you do not know him then, you may know his chart topping song "Happy".  It rose to number one in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and 19 other countries.  "Happy" sold over 13.9 million units and was the most successful song of 2014.  In an exclusive BET interview, Burrell was asked, "You have the honor of being featured on the single “I See the Victory” from the Hidden Figures original soundtrack.  How did this originally come to be?"  Burrell responded, "I got a call from Pharrell and he said, ‘I have a song that I would love for you to hear and it’s going in a movie that is a life-changing story and I think your voice is the one to convert the song.’ And so I flew out to LA, and I recorded it that night and here we are."  Pharrell refers to himself as a Universalist.  In Billy Hallowell's The Blaze article, Williams advised, "On paper I'm a Christian, but really I'm a Universalist."   With regard to "those who have concluded that God simply doesn’t exist", Pharrell Williams has stated: "It’s so incredibly arrogant and pompous. It’s amazing that there are people who really believe that".  Williams, a devout believer in man-made global warming and climate change, has little leniency, it appears, for the religion of atheism.

The third character is the papal leader of the entertainment world's Church of Present-Day LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ.  She is Metairie, Louisiana's own Ellen Lee DeGeneres, an American comedian, television host, actress, writer, and producer.  She's hosted hosted the Academy Awards, Grammy Awards, and the Primetime Emmys.  Winner of 29 Emmys, 17 People's Choice Awards, and numerous other awards, she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama in 2016.  What is Ellen's religion?  "I was raised Christian Science, which is like ‘mind over matter.’ I think there is something to that.  But I have a problem with a lot of the rules.  I don’t believe the god that I believe in is judgmental.  I think whatever works for you is right.  Heaven or hell is what you create right this minute where you are. You have a choice to live in joy or not.  And that’s my belief.  If I’m wrong, then I’m wrong, but I’m not hurting anybody."  I'll take that as "I'm Gay and You Better Believe!"

What's the problem?  There is none when it comes to Pharrell and Ellen.  In their Democrat world, there is tolerance for the religions of universal-ism, climate change and homosexuality.  Their tenets do not oppose one another.  There is immense love and respect because, for one, the behavior does not matter.  God loves everyone no matter what and thus, nothing matters to him and should not matter to us.  Amazing.  I wonder if he has the same feeling for an accountant that steals $1 million from his accounts?  I wonder if he feels this immense love that allows the thief to get away without recompense or due justice?  For the other, there is immense love and respect because they agree politically and I'm not hurting anyone.  Amazing.  Where have I heard that before?  Mohammedanism?  They have profited in the realm of entertainment and religion.  There is room for them on Ellen's stage.  

However, there is no room for the intolerable Old Testament tyrannical God that condemns and punishes and is jealous!  There is no room for a Jesus that speaks in Revelations 21 of those that will not get a Golden Ticket for Entrance into the Pearly Gates of Heaven from Willy Wonka.  You see those that speak from Gospels are committing a sin against society and the State.  They are committing a "Hate Crime".  They are professing "Hate Speech"!  It would be intolerable to have Pharrell suffer on the Cross before all of us on Ellen's Show by singing a duet with the Judas' more commonly known as Kim Burrell.  

The wrath of the LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ gods was unleashed.

OK!  Maybe Hollywood has dumped her like a loaf of bread covered in fire ants but, certainly she can count on her brothers and sisters to uphold her.  Right?  Texas Southern University, an historically black university (HBCU) located in Houston, Texas, showed Burrell the door on Friday when they advised her they would no longer air her Sunday afternoon radio show.  "Bridging the Gap with Kim Burrell" has been canceled!  End of story!  Nothing to see here.  Move along!

For preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, one month Burrell is the Toast of the Record and Film Industry and the next, she is a deceiver that could lead millions, Christian and not, away from the the Sirens of Progressive Culture.  Where is the Church Industry that has bought hook, line and sinker into the Marxist, Socialist, Communist, There Is Only One God and It Is the State Agenda?  They are just as quiet as a scorpion silently advancing upon its prey.  

"Good Morning, Pastor's Office!  How can I help you?"

"I'm Kim Burrell..."

"O, my goodness, Kim Burrell!  I am so glad to talk to you!  Your songs are so great and gurllll, you can sang!  Our choir director tapes all your songs and gives them out to the choir so that we can sing them on Sunday?"

"Why doesn't he just buy CD's to give to each of the choir members?"

"Gurllll, that would cost some money!  We can't do that.  Pastor's birthday coming up and we gotta get him a good gift this year.  Any who, how can I help you today?"

"Well, Ellen and those that were once on my side have turned against me.  I was supposed to go on Ellen's show..."

"Gurrrrlllllll!  I love me some Ellen!  All of us watch her during Afternoon Prayer Time.  She so funny!  And then, she does that dance and ev'rybody get up and dance wit her.  President Obama danced wit her.  First Lady Michelle danced wit her.  Eeewww, did you know that she had Pharrell on the other day.  Gurrrrlllll, he so cute and he can sang.  It was supposed to be some other woman on dere wit him but, Ellen said uh-uh, she can't be on there.  I was like go head Ellen.  Do you thang.  Run yo bidness.  If they don't like who you love den, don't let dem on your show.  Shoot!  Slavery ober, you can sleep wit who you want."

"May I speak with your Pastor.  I need his support."

"OK!  I kno he's gonna want to talk to you Ms. Burrell.  Hold please."

[Two Minutes]

"Ms. Burrell, Pastor says he's in a meeting and can't talk to you.  He said he would stick up for you but, he don't want to lose his personal license plate that the Mayor gave him.  But, he said he would ask God to lead him in a direction to help and get back to you.  Thanks for calling!  Bye!"

The War on Faith is real.  For those that have sought to tight rope walk your way through two very politically sensitive worlds: entertainment and religion, your days are numbered.  Jesus put it this way:

"No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon". ~~Luke 16:13

The modern day mammon has put a stranglehold on our family, our friends, our neighborhoods and our Nation.  The double minded nature of those that thought merely saying, "I am a Christian but I am open-minded" was enough must open their eyes to the truth.  There are those that have convinced you that they are only going after the "old white guys on the Right".  The truth is that you can not Love God with all of your heart, mind, soul and strength and equally serve the Leftist's agenda.  Only the cause is god and there will be no other.  The Christian Post reports, "More than 2,400 self-identified faith leaders and nearly 10,000 "moral activists" have signed an open letter from a progressive faith group demanding a meeting with president-elect Donald Trump in the hopes of having him advance a "moral agenda."  They saw what Evangelicals and Christians can do when they come together.  That is UNITY.  They fear that you know this and will continue to "rinse and repeat" in the electoral process.  If so, the Left will eventually lose everything that they have done over the past 100 years to steal, kill and destroy the Providential Promise that is America.

The Left fears that they will be without power, access and influence.  Like a plant, the Left would die in the room without light, water and attention.  Kim Burrell is the sacrificial lamb.  There must be one.  She has been put forth by those on the Left as a symbol of their resolve.  They are willing to suffer collateral damage, lest it be you, to return to the point where they had absolute power of governance.  

Pharell Is An Embarrassment to Strong Black Men Everywhere!  He does not mind getting paid to song-write "Hidden Figures", a motion picture about three strong black women that overcame all odds to help America produce an incomparable space exploration program.  The Tolerant Left, Inclusive of Black Entertainers, Have No Place in Their, Hearts, Souls or Minds for Those Willing to Preach the Word of God Before Men. I Have Neither Honor or Respect for Either As They Assassinate the Character of a Godly Woman. I Won't Watch Ellen or Buy Her Goods and Services. Neither Will I Support Pharell in Any Economic Capacity. Pastor Kim, Stand With the Lord. He Will Lift You Higher Than Any Upon the Earth.

By the way, Kim, you say that no one is there to support you.  I want you to know, "I AM".  If you will, I offer you the 1 PM ET time slot on TECN® in partnership with SHR Media to broadcast "Bridging the Gap with Kim Burrell.  I hope that you will not allow my political beliefs to interfere with a prudent consideration of my offer.  We no longer have any room for intolerance.
