Bloggers Interview: Deneen Borelli, a voice for Black Conservatives

Posted by on Jul 11, 2013 in Political Cummins and Goings

Deneen_BorelliDeneen Borelli is an amazing lady. Her biography even more so and her cause of reaching out to Black Conservatives is one of courage and deserves profound respect.

Deneen started out as a runway model, starring in commercials, as she worked her way, for 11 years to obtain her Bachelors degree. I see that in terms of ‘where there’s a will there’s a way,’ and she did it! Her corporate career started with Phillip Morris and headed in the direction to Produce and co-host a radio show called The ‘CORE’ Hour. (CORE stands for Congress of Racial Equality). Now she speaks to thousands whether is at tea party rallies, Fox News, “Hannity”, “O’Reilly”, or speaking with Glenn Beck, and on behalf of Freedom Works as Outreach Director, a grassroots organization that educates, trains and mobilizes volunteer activists to fight for limited government. Deneen is also the author of “Blacklash: How Obama and the Left are Driving Americans to the Government Plantation.” As one reviewer wrote Deneen “gives tough love” about what is going on in the black community, not only going after the Democrats, but Republicans as well.

Hollywood Actor Wants Obama Out of Office: ‘I Just Don’t Like This Guy’ (Plus: Why He’s Breaking His Silence)

Ken Wahl Speaks Out Against President Barack Obama, Discusses Being a Hollywood ActorActor Ken Wahl, known for playing several iconic roles in the 1980s and 1990s, has been increasingly vocal about the current state of affairs in America. He has openly decried the Obama administration, made his voice heard about the atrocities at Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s clinic — and is even considering pleas from some that he run for public office.

Considering the rare occurrence of a Hollywood actor coming out as a conservative — and an especially vocal one — TheBlaze spoke with Wahl to learn more about his worldview. The actor, according to his own account, hold views with little rooting in partisan politics, as he embraces values over party ideology.

Wahl’s Background and Apolitical Upbringing

“My family was very apolitical. We were just lower-middle class working people — and sitting around at the dinner table, politics was never a discussion,” Wahl told TheBlaze by phone of his childhood. “It was always about working — and I never considered myself a conservative. I never put a label on myself.”

Wahl noted that he was taught that the world doesn’t owe people anything and that it’s essential for individuals to work for themselves and their families — and to take care of their own.

“I didn’t realize I was a conservative until after I got into show-business,” he continued.

But rather than lambasting Hollywood for its politics or claiming that he was denigrated over his right-of-center views, Wahl said quite the opposite, citing inaccuracies that some conservatives advance about the entertainment industry.

“I think there’s been some misconceptions about that. … In all my experience — I had a very serious spinal injury — my entire career was only 11 years long, I can tell you that no one in Hollywood ever asked me for my political affiliation or my religious beliefs or anything like that,” he said. “What they care about is making money.”

That said, Wahl agrees that Hollywood elite are overwhelmingly liberal.

#BlogCon2013 – Coalition Building, uniting Conservatives and Libertarians

This panel – Russ Walker, Michelle Ray, Jason Pye, and Teri Christoph – was by far my favorite of #BlogCon2013. It was a spirited and passionate discussion on how Conservatives and Libertarians must find common ground in the ongoing fight for Freedom.

His Engine

Ben Nanke: His Engine is one of my favorite songs that I’ve written, but I’ve found that it is really speaking to a specific group of people – Christians who are neither of the world nor in it. While I firmly believe that, as a Christian, we’re called to step above the depravity and darkness of the world, problems arise when we try to distance and isolate ourselves from it entirely.

I don’t want to be a Christian in philosophy only; I want to make a visible difference in the lives of my fellow man, both directly by connecting with others in a meaningful way, and also indirectly by producing positive content that inspires and by working in politics and journalism to further the cause of truth and justice.

Prayer and contemplation is essential, but change occurs through our actions.

Simply put, we are God’s engine.

If you are struggling with despair or confusion in this broken world we live in, and feel like there’s nothing you can do, I hope this song speaks to you. Thanks for listening!
