Slavery ended seemingly forever ago and the nation has moved on. Black Americans have equal rights to every other American, protections in place to ensure things stay that way, and we’ve even had a black President. Still, people who have never been slaves have been for a long time demanding to be paid for what people who are no longer alive endured. The Biden Administration seems poised to cave on this — in a way.
Biden plans to provide free college tuition to students who attend historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) as a way for white people who have never owned slaves to apologize for slavery. The Daily Caller reports:
President Joe Biden’s administration will move forward with policies beneficial to African-Americans as Congress considers creating a commission to study the merits of direct reparation payments, White House adviser Cedric Richmond told Axios in an interview. The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on Feb. 17 regarding legislation that would create the commission.
“If you start talking about free college tuition to [historically black colleges and universities] and you start talking about free community college in Title I and all of those things, I think that you are well on your way,” Richmond said when asked about reparations, according to Axios.
“We have to start breaking down systemic racism and barriers that have held people of color back and especially African-Americans,” Richmond says. “We have to do stuff now.”
“We don’t want to wait on a study,” Richmond adds. “We’re going to start acting now.” Democrats are currently trying to pass legislation to provide free college at HBCUs, but the administration refuses to rule out going farther. Direct payments to African-Americans are a distinct possibility.
Thousands a day are dying of COVID, but Democrats are focused on racial politics and providing special favors based on skin color. It’s ridiculous. It’s unethical. It’s unconstitutional. We are all Americans, regardless of race — and all this does is treat some people better than others based solely on that one factor.
An unlikely figure has stepped out to say that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s multiple sexual harassment allegations should be investigated — Joe Biden. Biden, who is internationally infamous for groping and sniffing women and girls without their consent, suddenly thinks credible sexual harassment allegations should be investigated — something he didn’t quite agree with when he was accused of similar stuff by former staffer Tara Reade.
During the last election cycle, Reade came out about a time when Biden forced a kiss on her and touched her inappropriately while she was working on his staff. The allegations were credible right down to an old phone call from Reade’s deceased mother speaking out about how her daughter was treated. But Biden didn’t want to hear about that. Instead, he had his former staff smear the poor woman, who just wanted to make the public aware of what she went through. But Cuomo? He’s not Biden, so the President* is OK with throwing him under the bus. During a press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that Biden supports women who speak out (once again, something we know is not true):
“President Biden has been consistent that he believes that every woman should be heard, should be treated with respect and with dignity. Charlotte should be treated with respect and dignity. So should Lindsey. There should be an independent review looking into these allegations, and that’s certainly something he supports and we believe should move forward as quickly as possible.”
Cuomo is accused of sexual harassment by two women. The first, Lindsey Boylan says he invited her to play strip poker, forced a kiss on her, and other disgusting things. The second says Cuomo regularly made inappropriate remarks, including grilling her about whether or not she has had sex with older men.
Cuomo says both women are lying, but has authorized an investigation into his actions.
“I ask all New Yorkers to await the findings of the review so that they know the facts before making any judgements,” Cuomo says. “I will have no further comment until the review has concluded.” We’re certain that this investigation will be every bit as above board and legitimate as the Russia investigation — except the goal here will be to make evicence go away rather than invent it.
Very few people are charged fees to do their jobs. But joining the ranks of hairdressers and strippers may soon be White House reporters. According to reports, the Biden Administration now wants to charge reporters $170 every single time they step foot in the White House.
“Reporters who cover the White House may soon be paying what amounts to an admission fee to do their jobs,” a Washington Post report explains. ” Starting Monday, the White House’s press office said it will start charging journalists for coronavirus tests, which are required for anyone entering the White House grounds.” This puts a squeeze on news organizations, many of which already face budget issues. It also creates an atmosphere where smaller news organizations are priced out of covering the goings-on at the White House altogether. Via WaPo:
“The plan has alarmed the White House Correspondents’ Association, which represents reporters in issues affecting the presidential press corps. The organization has objected to the proposal because of the financial burden it would impose on news organizations, especially smaller ones for whom a $170 daily fee would be onerous. The fees would add up quickly for larger news organizations, too. The TV networks send as many as eight people a day to the White House grounds to report, produce and operate cameras and equipment. It would cost $1,360 a day to test an eight-person crew under the White House plan.”
This is a blatant attempt to use money to silence journalists. “It sets up a means test for White House coverage,” says one correspondents’ association member, who notes that no other federal agency has decided to tax journalists for reporting the truth.
The White House will continue to cover the cost of a small number of reporters assigned to follow the President when he travels and those attending press briefings. But this would number to fewer than a dozen.
Biden’s games must end. He is not trying to keep anyone safe. He is attempting to silence the media — the same thing he accused President Trump of doing. And we Americans should not stand for it.
President* Biden has a problem. His fellow Democrats don’t seem to trust him with our nuclear arsenal. According to left-leaning Politico, dozens of House Democrats have stepped forward to demand that Joe Biden relinquish control of our nuclear arsenal, promoting the question: what information do they have that we the people don’t?
Ever since before the election, it was clear to most of us that Joe Biden has cognitive issues. We’ve watched him stumble around mumbling to himself and otherwise acting in a manner that gives the impression that he’s completely mentally impaired. While some leftists called our this very apparent cognitive decline, most on the Left said that Republicans were simply smearing Biden anytime it was mentioned. Now that Biden is in office, Democrats must deal with the consequences of their lies — and one way of doing so seems to be to strip Biden of his ability to nuke other countries.
The Politico report says that nearly three dozen Democrats in the House of Representatives have demanded that Biden give up control:
Nearly three dozen House Democrats on Monday called on Biden to relinquish his sole authority to launch nuclear weapons, in the latest appeal to reform the command-and-control structure so that no single person can initiate a nuclear war.
“…Vesting one person with this authority entails real risks,” states the letter spearheaded by Rep. Jimmy Panetta of California. “Past presidents have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concern about the president’s judgment.“
“While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so,” the letter adds. “The military is obligated to carry out the order if they assess it is legal under the laws of war. Under the current posture of U.S. nuclear forces, that attack would happen in minutes.”
Democrats often criticized President Trump simply for having the ability to use our nation’s nuclear arsenal. And while they were willing to initiate phony impeachment hearings twice, they didn’t once try to stop President Trump from having the ability to use nuclear weapons — something they clearly don’t trust Biden’s judgment on.
