The below code pastes text from the clipboard that is copied from IE, but it changes the font color to red.  I need to modify it so that the font color is black.

Sub Paste_Journal()
    On Error Resume Next
      With GetObject("New:{1C3B4210-F441-11CE-B9EA-00AA006B1A69}")
      .GetFromClipboard
      Range("A3").Value = .GetText
   End With

End Sub

Try to add this line just before the EndWith:

Range("A3").Font.Color = RGB( 0, 0 , 0 )

So your code should be:
Sub Paste_Journal()
    On Error Resume Next
      With GetObject("New:{1C3B4210-F441-11CE-B9EA-00AA006B1A69}")
      .GetFromClipboard
      Range("A3").Value = .GetText
      Range("A3").Font.Color = RGB(0,0,0)
   End With

End Sub
