Who should take the blame for the midterm massacre? Should DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz bear the brunt of the blame or is there enough to spread around between Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Harry Reid, Pres. Barack Obama and the Democratic Party? Should Democrats look toward former DNC Chair Howard Dean‘s 50 state strategy?

Roland Martin, guest co-host Robin Robinson and the “NewsOne Now” post-midterm elections discussion panel (Orlando Watson, Judith Browne Dianis and Dr. Jason Johnson) discuss the Democratic blame game in the aftermath of the midterm massacre.

A group of African American pastors in Chicago, fed up with Democrats in Illinois who did not do what they promised to do as it relates to education, decided to support Republican Bruce Rauner for governor of the sate.

Former State Senator James Meeks lead the coalition of pastors in endorsing Rauner and some believe as a result of their endorsement, Rauner was able to defeat Democratic incumbent Pat Quinn.

Roland Martin, guest co-host Robin Robinson and the “NewsOne Now” post-midterm elections discussion panel (Orlando Watson, Judith Browne Dianis and Dr. Jason Johnson) analyze the reasons why Black pastors in Chicago backed GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner in the highly contested Illinois governors race. Civil rights icon Rev. Jesse Jackson weighs in on the conversation.

Black Republicans Tim Scott, Mia Love and Will Hurd won their respective races on election day. Will the GOP be able to strategically use these politicians to appeal to other African American voters and bring more minorities to their party? Once they take office, will Scott, Love and Hurd vote for or against key African American interests?

Roland Martin, guest co-host Robin Robinson and the “NewsOne Now” post-midterm elections panel (Orlando Watson, Judith Browne Dianis, Dr. Jason Johnson) discuss the rise of Black Republicans in the 2014 midterm elections.

On Thursday, Roland Martin and guest co-host Robin Robinson  talked with the cast of “Matthew 18” via Skype on “NewsOne Now.” The Black horror film is slated to premiere in theaters November 14th and delves into an age-old conflict of religious faith vs. scientific scholarship.

Actress Jennifer Jayleen Martinez, actress/comedian Luenell and the film’s director Roy Belfrey talked about their experience creating the thriller.

From www.matthew18movie.com:

Michelle Jamieson (Martinez) is too smart for faith. She has been raised in the tired traditions of her deeply religious family and is ready to expand her independent thought and stand in her logical, free-will. When the opportunity arises for her to separate from her Washington D.C. home and her bible-thumping parents, she takes a scholarship for her sought after medical program at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Eager to base her beliefs in the proof of science and develop her life decisions on the tangible experience of medicine – where every effect has a root cause and miracles come in the form of prescription slips; she wisps across the country to find her path, her truth. But what she finds supersedes her natural existence – making her mortality vulnerable to the spiritual realm she so comfortably doubted. Michelle stays in a Minneapolis mansion, a family property dating back many generations. She begins to encounter strange and unexplainable occurrences. As she is forced to investigate, what she uncovers is a world of family secrets and unspeakable evils that God himself may not save her from. In whose name will she cry out now?
