Mr. Williams identifies spiritual poverty as the condition to be overcome. Well done.

Let's get this out of the way first. I have no white guilt. The most important part of that article is under the first photo. Kiana joins 30 others running for local, state, and other offices (because none of us ran for office). My state rep doesn't even pretend to work. I finally found two people who went to school with her. If you did "Jay walking" with 1000 people, those two might be the only ones who know her or have seen her. Filling the void.

"The poverty we have today is spiritual poverty—a result of public and private policy that rewards inferiority and irresponsibility." Amen, Dr. Williams! Amen. Leftists who told us you can't force morality on people have been forcing their immorality on us while attempting to X God out of society. Those silly little black folks running around being racist and threatening to take over fail to realize that while people of color may the majority around the world, that's not the case in America. They can't go around attempting to re-litigate the aftermath of slavery. The poorest Americans are wealthier than most people of color around the world. But their addled brains can't process this common sense information.

The most impactful thing that Obama did during his presidency was to set back race relations several decades.

Today, President Donald J. Trump declared that an emergency exists in the State of Oregon and ordered Federal assistance to supplement State, tribal, and local response efforts due to the emergency conditions resulting from wildfires beginning on September 8, 2020, and continuing. The President’s action authorizes the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to coordinate all disaster relief efforts which have the purpose of alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, and to provide appropriate assistance for required emergency measures, authorized under Title V of the Stafford Act, to save lives and to protect property and public health and safety

Oh boy, do I have a story for you. Who doesn’t love Las Vegas? It’s America’s favorite city. It may be the world’s favorite city. It’s my adopted hometown for 20 years now. Up until recently, I never thought anything, or anyone, could ever destroy Las Vegas. I was wrong. Everyone needs to hear about what’s happening here. Las Vegas and the state of Nevada are in deep trouble. Trust me, you’re next, if you put Biden and Democrats in charge of America.   Correction*

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) made the one gaffe a vice presidential nominee should never make when she spoke of a “Harris administration” in a virtual campaign speech Saturday. In normal times this would be seen as a harmless gaffe to have a laugh over. However, with running mate Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s mental condition perceived by observers to have deteriorated this year, such a statement can be seen not as a blunder but as a slip of the mask revealing who would be actually be calling the shots in a Biden-Harris administration. Harris immediately cleaned up the gaffe.

A few days prior to delivering a speech during the opening night of the recent Republican National Convention, guest-speaker and former football star Herschel Walker ripped Democrats in a tweet for “playing the race card way too much,” at their own convention the week prior. While Walker clearly has a legitimate point, it was actually a huge understatement. In 2020, every card in the Democrats’ deck is the race card. There are no clubs or diamonds. There are no one-eyed Jacks or suicide Kings [snip] Democrats will “play the race card” at any time, with any topic, and without any evidence.

Order's 'most-favored-nation price' ties Medicare costs to those paid in other countries. Drugmakers outraged. President Trump on Sunday signed an executive order moving Medicare one step closer to a "most favored nation" drug pricing system, instructing the government health care program for seniors to develop and test paying the same drug prices as other developed countries with cost controls. The memo defines the most-favored-nation price as "the lowest price, after adjusting for volume and differences in national gross domestic product, for a pharmaceutical product

Joe has failed every big test when given executive authority. Joe Biden has been trying to embrace Barack Obama's record because he doesn't have one of his own, but the former vice president didn't fair well in what arguably was the 43rd president's biggest accomplishment, argues Dan McLaughlin in an analysis for National Review. The best moment of Obama's presidency was the May 2011 raid into Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden. But it happened only because Obama ignored Biden when the vice president said, "Mr. President, my suggestion is, don't go."

Something called systemic racism has been ubiquitous in the news recently.

Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf set the record straight on the violent antifa riots in Portland in his 2020 State of the Homeland speech on Wednesday. He explained just how dangerous the riots had been for federal law enforcement and he excoriated Gov.

Wolf also condemned the ridiculous assertion that the violence in Portland has been “mostly peaceful.” [Snip]"There is, however, no Constitutional right to loot, to burn, or to assault law enforcement officers or your fellow citizens.”

ore Americans say former Vice President Joe Biden has the mental clarity to be president versus Donald Trump, according to the latest Fox News poll released Sunday.

A slight majority of likely voters—51 percent—told Fox News they believe Biden, 77, has the "mental soundness" to be president, compared to 47 percent who say the same about Trump, 74.

I’m not anti-mask, per se. There, I said it. If you’ve been reading my rants, er, columns on the topic these past few months, you might get another idea though, and I understand that. It certainly SEEMS like I’m anti-mask, and you’d be forgiven for thinking that was the case. That doesn’t mean that I like wearing them, of course. They’re uncomfortable and stifling and, frankly, disgusting. Even so, I WOULD wear them, when necessary, if the arguments the mask-proponents used to con almost the entire world into accepting and even mandating the practice were actually, well, true. Ah, but there’s the rub, right?

This year’s presidential election confronts voters with the most consequential choice they have faced in decades, and for many, their lifetimes: between a divisive, authoritarian-leaning incumbent and a seasoned patriot who brings not only five decades of experience, ability and commitment to American values, but also bold ideas at a time of national crisis. Nothing less than the health of our constitutional democracy is at stake. So stark is the contrast between Donald Trump and Joe Biden that we feel compelled to announce our endorsement of the Democratic nominee and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris of California, now, at what is traditionally the beginning of the fall campaign and before

Normally, I would spurn the idea of citing an anonymous post that purports to contain inside information on a presidential candidate. But two factors currently weigh on my mind, causing me to make an exception. One is that MSM Trump-haters have no compunction at all over relying exclusively on anonymous sources (snip) But the other factor is more serious and directly relevant to the anonymous post I am about to cite. The Biden campaign clearly is hiding their candidate from exposure to circumstances that might test his mental acuity and vigor on a sustained basis. We now have direct evidence that the campaign has been deceiving the public by using a teleprompter

I woke up in the morning wondering about the dark red rays coming from behind the curtain. While I expected the darkened sky, the degree of darkness and the fact that I couldn’t smell fire surprised me. Northern California fires have become increasingly common over the last decade as a consequence of mismanaging the environment. Native Americans staged controlled burns to safeguard their villages and create favorable hunting conditions. We failed to emulate that practice, and, as even Mother Jones concedes, so much fuel accumulated in the wilderness that megafires began burning year after year.

San Francisco, Calif. -- The Poopalosi protestor live streamed this performance piece from Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s residence in the posh Presidio Terrace neighborhood on YouTube. Believe it or not, thanks to District Attorney Chesa Boudin, this act is quasi-legal in San Francisco.

The strength of America’s elections lies in people’s confidence that votes will be fairly tallied, and that the losing party will bow out gracefully and become the loyal opposition. But what if a loser refuses to acknowledge the results of a free and fair election? What if it instead takes to the streets to commit violence and mayhem? Or even attempts a coup? We ask because there’s every sign now that the Democrats, in a panic over candidate Joe Biden’s lackluster basement campaign and growing evidence that he is suffering age-related mental impairment, will refuse to acknowledge President Donald Trump

Were the Republicans to run a Catholic for president who supported, say, segregation, the bishops wouldn’t hesitate to condemn that figure and warn their congregations not to vote for him. But the bishops apply no such condemnation or warning to Joe Biden, who is a dissenter in favor of abortion rights and gay marriage. Even Biden’s officiating at gay marriages, an egregiously disobedient act for a Catholic, is met with silence from most bishops. While Pope Francis felt no reservations about condemning Trump’s faith — he called him “not Christian” for supporting border walls — he and his like-minded bishops refuse to question Biden’s
