A new poll from Monmouth University was released last week. Among the questions, the pollsters asked was: “In general do you support or oppose requiring voters to show a photo ID in order to vote?”Continue reading “American Opinions On Voter ID”
The link below shares the stories of three people who were part of the abuse and persecution of China’s Uyghur minority, reminding us of previous tragedies in history regarding systematic ethnic abuse. The story is shared in its entirety.
The growing outrage against Communist China is even more concerning when we see US companies excuse such ethnic cleansing because they are more concerned with profits.
Late yesterday, a jury found former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of murder in the death of George Floyd.
By now, we probably have all seen the video footage of Chauvin pinning Floyd to the ground by putting his knee on his neck. For anyone who has, it was hard not to conclude that then police officer Chauvin used excessive force and murdered George Floyd.
Yesterday, the system worked and held that police officer accountable for his actions. Though it should have been pretty clear to any objective observer what happened, every person has a right to a trial and to make their case. Chauvin did that and the justice system held him to account.Continue reading “Police Accountability and Reasoned Discourse”
There has been much controversy about an election law recently passed in the state of Georgia. The law’s provisions include such things as a requirement for a photo ID to vote in person, tightening validation provisions around mail-in ballots, and a provision that most of us would not think of but which forbids passing out food and drinks to people standing in line to vote.
Liberal politicians have screamed charges of racism and voter suppression. Corporations such as Delta Airlines have joined in and Rob Manfred, Commissioner of Major League Baseball (MLB) announced that they are moving this year’s All-Star game out of Atlanta because of the outrage. Yesterday, Manfred announced that the game would be held in Denver, presumably because Colorado was much less ‘racist’ than Georgia in how it handled election. Yet, the actual reality is quite interesting, as is the intellectual integrity of Manfred and MLB.Continue reading “The Intellectual Dishonesty of Rob Manfred and MLB”
Election laws in the United States are determined by the states and always have been since that requirement is part of the US Constitution.
Georgia recently passed a law to limit potential election fraud, including provisions to put tighter limits on mail-in voting and to require photo identification.Continue reading “Georgia And Election Law”
For college basketball fans, March Madness is always a time of bracketology and Cinderella stories. One of the Cinderella stories this year has been Oral Roberts who is a #15 seed from a minor conference who made it to the Sweet 16.
This year, the politically correct ‘woke’ culture has decided that’s not such a fun story. Prior to the Sweet 16 games this past weekend, radical leftist groups called for the NCAA to make Oral Roberts forfeit the rest of its games. Because of some rule violation, or an ineligible player? No, it seems that the religious school does not believe in same sex marriage. And so in the intolerance of the ‘ban everything I disagree with’ mentality of modern radicalism, Oral Roberts basketball team should be forbidden to play in the NCAA because of the religious beliefs of the school.
Kenosha, Wisconsin District Attorney Michael Gravely announced late this afternoon that police involved in the August shooting of Jacob Blake will not be charged.
In the incident, which led to days of riots, police were responding to a domestic violence call and confronted Jacob Blake, a black man who ignored police warnings and instructions. As police tried to get him to stop so they could talk to him, Blake refused and continued to walk to his car. Blake opened the car door where a knife was visible and within reach (which Blake later confirmed was true). The officer shot Blake seven times in the back, leaving him paralyzed below the waist.
In a statement, the District Attorney said that the officer “felt he was about to be stabbed” and if the case were brought to court, they could not prove that the officer did not act in self-defense.Continue reading “Travesty In Kenosha”
As we were preparing for our Thanksgiving celebrations, you may have missed a Supreme Court ruling in a case out of New York. On Wednesday, the Supreme Court ruled that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s restrictions on attendance at churches and synagogues was unconstitutional.
That is the simple, and immediate issue, at hand. But the ruling was far more significant.Continue reading “Supreme Court Rules That New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo Discriminates Against Religion”
You thought the battle over segregation was fought and won decades ago? Apparently not.
The King County, WA (Seattle) has been holding employee ‘listening sessions’ to discuss racial equality. However, it seems that their view of ‘equal’ also means ‘separate but equal’ training. The library system hired consultants to run the sessions, which were held in racially segregated sessions.
The consultants discovered widespread “institutional racism” in the library system but it’s unsure exactly what that means because, according to some participants, if employees reported “not experiencing or witnessing racism while working at KCLS” they were told they were likely suffering from the false consciousness of “internalized racism.” In other words, they had experienced it but they just weren’t smart enough to know it.
UK’s black Women and Equalities Minister Kemi Badenoch delivered a strong and clear condemnation of the Black Lives Matter movement and critical race theory on the floor of the House of Commons — saying such ideologies have no place in British schools and that she would oppose them in every way.
Her statement was unequivocal and clear on why she opposes the radicalism of the organization while supporting equalityContinue reading “Women & Equality Minister Calls Out BLM”
