Vice President Mike Pence will preside over the Tuesday confirmation of Gen. Charles Brown to replace Gen. Dave Goldfein as the U.S. Air Force’s next Chief of Staff.Pence rarely presides over Senate confirmations, but Tuesday afternoon’s vote could be historic. If confirmed, Brown would be the first ever African American chief of staff in any of the U.S. military branches. He would also join retired Army Gen. Colin Powell as the only black men to sit on the Joint Chiefs of Staff. (Photo) Brown currently serves as the Commander of Pacific Air Forces, and he spoke last week about what it mean

I long for the day when the color of a person's skin is NOT emphasized in a news headline or news story. That constitutes true equality.

#2, I thought so, however just a couple days ago he put out a 5 minute video ranting about race and what he thinks. To me it was a punch in the face because General Brown is my era. General Brown essentially called the Air Force a racist organization that needs fixing. No where in the rant did he acknowledge that the whole time we were in together, that there were layers and layers of programs to help minorities. See if this opens and tell me what you think: https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/your-air-force/2020/06/05/stop-everything-and-watch-the-likely-next-air-force-chief-of-staffs-powerful-statement-on-race/

Skin color or gender does nothing for competency, leadership, or success. Please review applications for merit, and add policies for dismissal for mistakes in hiring, and workforce reductions.

I would support and celebrate this appointment only and only if his race makes no difference. The nation "grappling with racial issues" should have nothing to do with it. If it does it is a wrong move!

I am certain this is a man of honor and integrity. I tire of minority groups telling me that I could not possibly understand racism. I can understand that line of thinking because I was not born with the same skin color. I do understand discrimination. BIG TIME. In two words, BRAIN DISORDERS. Need I say more. My mom suffered from seizures. Some of the things that was said to her, or the looks given when she was having a seizure, or just some of the nastiness because people don't understand brain disorders. So I doubt that General Charles Brown could understand what she went through but if he can empathize, it doesn't make it less relevant.

This certainly appears to be an appeasement to BLM. If it is, it is a big mistake. If the guy deserved it, he will be remembered as an appeasement and not a man who made his own mark and is a disservice to him. It should not have been made at this time.

WASHINGTON— House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that it’s time to remove symbols honoring Confederate figures from the U.S. Capitol building and military bases as the pandemic and racial unrest force a national reckoning with racial discrimination.“These names have to go from these bases and these statues have to go from the Capitol,“ Pelosi said at her weekly news conference. “The American people know these names have to go.”Confederate monuments have reemerged as a national flashpoint since the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white Minneapolis officer pressed his knee into his neck for several minutes.

It was absolute mayhem on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News. Hannity prefaced the segment about the Democrats’ inability to govern, which was interrupted by West. The shouting began almost immediately. Terrell hit back at West for just recycling old Democratic talking points. He then tried to have a discussion with West, “black man to black man,” which West did not take well at all.

Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) laughed about this open rebellion, saying he hadn’t heard about it. Inslee added that the National Guard is demobilizing, and his chief of staff suggested that even if an open rebellion had broken out on the streets of Seattle, it would be up to “local authorities” to fight it. “Passing the buck” doesn’t even begin to cover the insanity of this “response.” A reporter asked Inslee about the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone during the governor’s press conference

Have you heard that a six-block section of Seattle has become an anarchist “capitol hill autonomous zone,” or “CHAZ” for short? It has. Police and firefighters vacated their premises and bugged out with a Twitter blessing from Mayor Jenny Durkan. Durkan dithered over the descent of protests into violence for a week before doing much, and when she did much, her choice was to tweet in hasty retreat. Anarchists quickly set up CHAZ to be and do its own thing, as long as that thing conformed with diktats of the CHAZ hierarchy. They put up makeshift signs saying, “You are now leaving the U.S.A.”

“Romney didn’t win, did he?” That was former Senate Democratic majority leader Harry Reid’s response to whether he regretted lying about then-GOP presidential nominee — and now Utah senator — Mitt Romney. Reid accused Romney on the Senate floor in 2012, when he was running for president, of not having paid any taxes in four years. It was absolutely untrue and was discredited by Washington Post fact-checkers and others at the time. But that didn’t stop the onslaught of unfair and inaccurate accusations and innuendos.
