    We Are Already Victorious

    Psalm 75:5-7 5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck. 6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. 7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

    I would like to thank everyone that came out and supported me on August 25th. God has blessed me to be in a run off. People really showed up. I would especially like to thank my opponents, Tashina Morris, Phyllis Harvey-Hall and Cornelius Calhoun. All throughout the process, they were very nice. There were some little things going on but the overall process was very pleasant. Everyone got along. It was not like I thought it would be at all. I look forward to working with all of them going forward.

    The people that volunteered were amazing. My entire family stepped up. It is my nature to always stick my nose into everything and they always have my back even if they do not always agree with the fight or in some case think I started it. All during the election, they were encouraging me to keep moving forward. They continually amazed me as they did things that were totally out of character to move my campaign forward when I thought everything was hopeless. They continue to amaze me and I am blessed to call them family. I am truly a rich man.

    Looking Back for the Way Forward

    In some ways our worst times were our best times. We understood that we could depend on no one but ourselves and looked within our own community for support. We understood what was at stake and demanded the best from all of us and made no excuses. Our leaders lead the way through righteousness and did not sell out their own people for personal gain. Each success by one of us was breaking new ground for all of us.

    Today, we are all about getting ours at the expense of others. We do not care how bad it makes our race looks. We make excuses for ignorance while looking to the same government that put us here in the first place through false promises and government dependency to save us from ourselves. We attack those that espouse the same values that brought us through the toughest times of slavery and Jim Crow as sellouts and traitors to our race.

    SOGIs – Are They Needed in Montgomery?

    In the culture, in the courts, even in casual conversation, it is increasingly obvious that we have lost sight of over 200 years of social and legal tradition that has secured our fundamental freedoms – namely, freedom of speech and religion.

    A new concept – that “sexual liberty” trumps religious freedom – has begun to impact churches, ministries, businesses and individuals across this nation. This concept has led to the passage of sexual orientation, gender identity ordinances (SOGIs).

    Public Officials are Ministers of God

     

    Below is the letter from Judge Roy Moore’s lawyer to Governor Bentley:

    Time for Public Officials to take their stand one way or the other.
    Jesus Christ is Lord of all. He came to save the world by His death and resurrection. That world includes you, me, the family, the civil government, all the institutions of life. He came to advance His Father’s kingdom, not watch man run rampant upon the earth as if Christ had never come. As if it were the days of Noah!
    Public officials are ministers of God assigned the duty of punishing the wicked and protecting the righteous. If the public officials decide to officially approve of the acts of the wicked, they must logically not protect the righteous from the wicked. In fact, they must become protectors of the wicked. You cannot serve two masters; you must pick – God or Satan.

    Vacant Homes and Land Banking

    There has been plenty of talk of what to do about the vacant homes on the West side of Montgomery.  Many are running on the idea of using taxpayer money to fix the houses.  Unfortunately, that is not a very popular approach due to the fact that the government is already $300+ million in debt.  That is also not a good approach because it puts the solution totally on the government.  Any lasting solution should be based in the community in order to have a real and lasting impact.  Also, any solution will not be an overnight fix.  We cannot just wave a magic wand and the issue will just go away.  We did not get here overnight and we will not solve it overnight.  Any solution must be a well thought out long lasting solution that will be beneficial to all and in particular to those in the community first.

    Go Ahead…Dare to be Great

    A thought hit me this morning and I just have to share. America is great because men that dared to be great did not sit around and wait for people to tell them that it was OK to go be great. To these great men (and women), doing nothing was the biggest failure. They believed in themselves regardless of the climate. What set these men apart from most was that they forged ahead when most people laughed at them or when they were the only ones that believed. The forged a path where no one dared to go and did it in what most would consider the most inopportune time.

    Education and Mentorship

    When I was a child attending Forest Avenue in grades 1st through 3rd, I was one of the worst students in the school at the time.  In fact, I was so bad that the teachers did not even bother to deal with me in the morning.  They sent me straight to the principle’s office.  I would sit in a desk right by his desk and I ran errands for him all day.  Needless to say, I made straight F’s from all of my teachers.  I should have flunked each year but they passed me on.  No one expected me to amount to anything.  In return, I did everything to live down to their expectations.

    It was not until I transferred and went to Carver elementary where I met Mrs. Dantzler.  She was the first teacher that took an interest in me.  You see, it was during the time that I was sizing up the other kids in the school and not getting in trouble, that Mrs. Dantzler took an interest in me.  She told me how smart I was and how well behaved I was.  No one had ever said that to me before.  I began to come to school everyday intent on not letting her down.  I began to take an interest in school work for the first time.  I went from making straight F’s to straight A’s.  I became one of the smartest kids in the school.

    National Police Force

    In recent months, there has been an increasing call for a national police force in response to incidents of police brutality around the country.  When I first spoke of this a few months back, many people laughed at me and said that they had never heard of it and it was ridiculous.  Now these very same people are stating that this might not be a bad idea because of the issues that are facing the police force today.  In fact, Al Sharpton in Baltimore Thursday called for the Justice Department to step in and take over policing in the United States and hold bad officers accountable.

    “That’s why we’re going to do this march from here to Washington. We need the Justice Department to step in and take over policing in this country.”
