In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

Video || Trump Says He Was “Not Happy” With “Send Her Back” Chant

I’m glad he did this, at least. President Trump Thursday said he disagreed with supporters at his rally in Greenville, North Carolina, who began chanting “send her back” when he spoke about Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, a Somali immigrant. Trump claimed he tried to quell the chant by quickly beginning to speak over it. “I was not happy with it — I disagree with

Kellyanne Conway: “The Squad” has “Done Squat in Congress”

Well, that’s true. They’re mostly a protest and outrage movement. But they are steering he conversation, much to the chagrin of Nancy Pelosi. Kellyanne Conway came out swinging this morning against the group of four Democratic women whom President Trump has attacked in a series of tweets — Reps. Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley. Meantime, her husband George wrote a column

Joe Biden is a Serial Fabulist

Democrats cannot possibly attack President Trump for lying and nominate Joe Biden. Biden’s problem with racial issues is not just that he has consorted with segregationists and opposed busing, as Kamala Harris enjoyed noting in the Democratic debate. It’s worse. He made up a whole career in the civil rights movement. He lied about it for years. According to the Washington Examiner: In the acclaimed

Video || Don Lemon Stokes Racial Strife With Claim White Men are “Biggest Terror Threat”

Why do this? Why bring race into it? Because the urge to demonize President Trump, and his supporters, is so great that the CNN anchor couldn’t resist. And there will be no repercussions for a race-based assertion in this case. “The biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them,”

Video || Democrats Kneeling on the House Floor

Some formerly anonymous dude from Wisconsin kneeled Tuesday in solidarity with the overpaid NFL players who have been disrespecting the flag and the country. Sheila Jackson Lee got onto one knee Monday night after calling President Trump a racist and suggesting he was “dishonoring” peoples’ mothers by referring to Colin Kaepernick using the term “son of a bitch” which, uh, usually isn’t taken quite so

Hillary Clinton Race Baits Trump Over Football Kneeler Comments

I suppose this is what Trump gets for failing to immediately call out Nazis protesting in Charlottesville, Virginia and saying there were some good people among them, evidence of which I have yet to see. And yet, it does not follow that every time Trump criticizes people, some of whom happen to be black, that he is “dog whistling” to racists or doing something racist

Anti-Police Obama Gives Awards to Police

President Obama today made a big deal of awarding Medals of Valor to law enforcement officers who have performed acts of heroism. Right, the same Obama who is making their lives impossible by throwing in with the #blacklivesmatter crowd and suggesting that police racism is endemic and offending officers will be prosecuted. The result being that officers have pulled back and more black lives are

Obama Uses South Carolina Killings to Call for Gun Control Rethink

President Obama Thursday appeared at the White House to mourn the killing of nine African Americans in South Carolina in a apparently racially motivated mass murder, using the tragedy to call for Americans to change the way they think about guns. “I have had to make statement like this too many times. Communities like this have had to endure tragedies like this too many times,” Obama

Mrs. Obama’s Comments on Race

So I will say a couple of things about this, from First Lady Michelle Obama’s commencement speech Saturday at Tuskagee University. First, here are her remarks. Or you can watch the video below. The road ahead is not going to be easy. It never is, especially for folks like you and me. Because while we’ve come so far, the truth is that those age-old problems

My Brother’s Wrong Keeper

What if there were a federal program devoted mainly to white people? What would everyone say about that? I’m sorry to be the tarantula in the sleeping bag here, but I’m not too excited about President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative, or its expansion into the private sector with a new corollary group that will run on corporate donations. And not because I don’t think

Obama: Minority Communities Must Change

Saying it can’t just be left to the police to “do the dirty work of containing the problems,” President Obama today said change must come to minority communities, implicitly acknowledging that the root of the deadly confrontations that crop up between police and African Americans lies in the communities themselves. Now, I would disagree with his solutions to these problems. But I give the president credit, unlike
