He said he met with some students who had visited the museum. “They said the exhibit said that my views on affirmative action result from my going to various schools in my youth. And the young woman, the young student said, ‘Well is that true?' I said, ‘No.’ They said, ‘Well, did they talk to you before they put that exhibit up?’ I said, ‘Nope.’

I expect to complete my life and go to my grave without a visit to the African American Museum. For the record, I am in Washington, DC frequently, and certainly have the time to explore places that educate with facts and enhance the quality of life. I try to visit those kind of places.

The current Smithsonian is dictated by leftists who seem to get nearly everything backwards & inside out! They are trying to rewrite everything about the USA and its history. Political correctness is NOT tolerant nor accurate and thus ca not be relied on for facts.

So when they say "we'll fix it," it means they got caught making up their own facts to fit their agenda and got busted. Dirt bags.

It would have to be a bipartisan initiative."In this case, Congress could allow itself a COLA (Cost of Living Adjustment) that would raise lawmakers' pay by $4,500 to $178,500, up from the current $174,000.

Freshmen Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants Congress to give itself a $4,500 pay raise next year. That would boost her salary to $178,500. And that’s not counting the many perks members of Congress get, all courtesy of taxpayers. But even that isn’t enough for the self-described socialist. AOC scoffed that a 2.5% bump in pay was “not even like a raise.” Before that, she grumbled that her income was merely a “living wage.” She also complained in a tweet that if lawmakers don’t get a raise, it “makes campaign finance reform *harder.* ” And it “increases pressure on them to keep dark money loopholes open.” It makes one wonder if AOC understands

Daniel McGraw, our reporter in the courtroom, reports that in addition to the $11.2 million compensatory damages awarded last Friday, the jury awarded a total of $22 million. That brings the total damages to $33 million. We will have the breakdown soon. The jury also awarded attorney’s fees, to be determined by the judge. In closing argument, Gibson’s lawyer Lee Plakas argued: “Why is the country watching you.
