Former Republican Party National Chairman Michael Steele goes on the record with NNPA Newswire and it turns out there are more resisters inside the White House – a high-level group of Republican resisters to President Donald Trump — not a single individual, but a large and still growing group.

In an NNPA Newswire exclusive, Steele said the damning New York Times op-ed by a senior Trump administration official was likely written by a team of the president’s trusted hierarchy and it’s a clear signal that America is now witnessing a White House in utter chaos.

Steele, who served as party chair from 2009 to 2011, said Trump has devastated the party and has led Republicans to the brink of a midterm that could see a blue wave from sea to shining sea. More ↠

North Carolina Congressional members Alma Adams (D-NC-12), David Price (D-NC-4) and G.K. Butterfield (D-NC-1) – the only Democrats in the state’s thirteen-member congressional delegation – say they see political shenanigans in the federal subpoenas from the US Dept. of Justice [DOJ], and specifically from U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District Robert Higdon, demanding voting records from 44 Eastern North Carolina counties and the State Board of Elections.

Many of those counties have significant Black voter populations. More ↠

CHARLOTTE, NC – The community still marvels over the successes of St. Paul Baptist Church living out their vision of providing affordable housing for not only seniors but those with insufficient incomes to afford a better way of life based on housing costs in the city of Charlotte and surrounding areas.

We encourage other houses of faith regardless of denomination to build partnerships with various city and county entities, banks, philanthropist, and others that can provide funding for such a task; builders willing to work at reduced rates, architects decreasing their design cost, and others willing to work for the cause.

St. Paul was blessed by Rev. Dr. Gregory Moss’s vision More ↠
