WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., wants a song about faith and resilience long revered in the Black community to become the national hymn and help toward uniting the country after centuries of racial turmoil. Clyburn, the House majority whip, plans to introduce a measure as early as this week that would make “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” known as the Black national anthem, the national hymn and give it a special place alongside the country’s anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner." “To make it a national hymn, I think, would be an act of bringing the country together.

Will it be OK to kneel down and raise a fist when the black national anthem is playing?

This is double speak and is decisive. Rather than unite and heal, it would divide and agitate. Democrats are obsessed with identity politics and refuse to treat people as individuals. All blacks do not think alike and all do not have a common experience. It's time to bury the victim card and focus on taking advantage of the same opportunities open to all Americans who want to accept personal responsibility and work hard to better themselves.

"Help heal?" No, all efforts along this line pour gasoline on the fires of anti-white racial hate that the black racists like Clyburn have lit in the black community.

This has nothing to do with “healing”. We have a national hymn (not the anthem). It’s called “God of Our Fathers”. Listen to it sung by a military chorus, people who understand its true meaning.

It's a beautiful hymn, and I would have no problem with it. It will not happen, however. 1. Clyburn has already prove himself to be a racist thug, and is proposing this only to bring attention to himself. 2. Democrats hate God or even a suggestion of God. They will find some way to either trash it, cancel it, or rewrite the lyrics to their philosophy. 3. These people have no interest in healing anything. If they were there would be no need for "Stop the Steal". This is like a violent home intruder patting the heads of the corpses as he leaves saying, "There, there."

I have no doubt that if the coup is completed there will be a new national anthem and everyone will be forced to sing it. If you alter the words the people around you will report it and if you silently utter the wrong words, facial recognition lip readers will single you out. We are rapidly heading into a world where supply lines and primeval truths will be the highest priority in a demonic world of cruelty. Brought to us by stupid people and cowards who swore an oath to fight for the freedoms many died for, but instead of fighting they only enriched themselves while selling us out.

You didn't build that Clyburn, at least not all by yourselves. The Star Spangled Banner was written to honor all those brave men, black and white who fought at Ft. McHenry and held up the flag pole, even if it meant their own deaths. So why are you wanting to dishonor those brave souls who made it possible for you to be such a C.weasel today?

Truth: I suspect fewer than 20% of Black Americans even know the title of this anthem. That's probably a way-too generous guess. Make it 8%. Among those black folks who've who heard OF "Lift Every Voice," including the much tiner number who've actually HEARD it, I suspect those who've mastered the lyrics (see explanation below) are less than 2-3% of that population. Black Americans have made truly brilliant, irreplaceable contributions to music. Ironically, this tune, which I actually have heard on several occasions, is around 75 verses long, and very much on the soporific side. Kinda like listening to a speech by one-note foghorn James Clyburn.

Black activists are coming out strongly against a growing narrative among conservatives that equates the deadly siege on the U.S. Capitol with last summer's Black Lives Matter protests of racial injustice. Republican lawmakers defending President Donald Trump made the comparison again Wednesday while building their case against impeachment and accused Democrats of being hypocrites with selective outrage. Their comments mark the latest effort by Trump and the GOP to misrepresent the Black Lives Matter movement as an extremist, violent faction tied to anarchists. “You can moan and groan, but he was far more explicit about his calls for peace than some of

SAN FRANCISCO — A California coalition is proposing legislation to boost taxes on wealthy multinational corporations to raise more than $2 billion a year to house tens of thousands of homeless people, addressing what has become a worsening problem in the country's most populous state. Supporters say Assembly Bill 71 would reinvent California's approach to solving homelessness — providing for the first time an ongoing, sufficient state funding source to get people off the streets. Opponents say it would contribute to the perception that California is hostile to business. “Our state is facing an unprecedented homelessness crisis that's on the

Lauren Jones, from Llwynypia in the Rhondda, had complex regional pain syndrome in her foot which meant she walked with crutches, but this would not have made her more susceptible to becoming very ill with coronavirus. However, she did have high blood pressure and patients with the condition face twice the risk of dying from the disease, according to a study of 2,900 patients in China.

Biden has expressed criticism on multiple occasions to groups of transition officials — including one confrontation where Biden conveyed to Covid coordinator Jeff Zients and his deputy, Natalie Quillian, that their team was underperforming. The tensions have surfaced as Biden's advisers plan a dramatic scale-up of vaccinations starting Jan. 20, when the incoming team inherits a troubled

President Trump was impeached a second time by the US House of Representatives on Wednesday in a largely party-line vote that saw a handful of Republicans join Democrats to blame the outgoing commander-in-chief for sparking last week’s Capitol siege. The measure reached 217 “yea” votes shortly after 4:20 p.m. to make Trump the only president to be impeached twice. The final vote was 232-197, with 10 Republicans crossing party lines and four Republicans not voting when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced around 4:35 p.m. No members of the GOP voted in 2019 to impeach Trump the first time.

President Trump potentially faces a torrent of criminal charges when he leaves office, including charges linked to the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, making prosecutors worry that he is a flight risk. Mr. Trump’s real estate empire extends to multiple luxury properties in countries that don’t have extradition treaties with the United States. And Mr. Trump himself publicly mused in October that he’d leave the country if he lost to Democrat Joseph R. Biden. Douglas McNabb, a private attorney with expertise in international extradition defense, said that if criminal charges are brought, Mr. Trump fits the bill for becoming a fugitive from justice.
