On Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee approved H.R. 40 which establishes a 13-person commission to study slavery reparations in the United States for the first time in history. It passed with a majority of 25-17 votes. The vote does not mean that the bill will make it to the House floor. Should it proceed to a vote, the Democrats hold a very slim majority in the House and its passage is in doubt. It is even more unlikely to pass the Senate. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) presented the legislation to the House committee. She declared: “No such bill has ever come this far during Congressional history

Remember the old western movie clips. They burned his house down, raped and killed his wife--but they didn't kill Kato, who will now get his revenge in the rest of the movie. I wonder when the Republicans will respond to having their houses burnt, their women and children taken.

Realize that in our modern legal system an individual cannot be held responsible for delinquent taxes or credit card debt of their own parents or adult siblings, yet congress is contemplating holding millions of individuals fiscally liable for actions taken in a previous century by people long dead. Also, under the heading of ''be careful what you wish for, because it may come true''; once reparations are paid is everything considered square and all excuses are denied from that time forward? or do they just switch to the open-ended ''white privilege'' canard?

How many TRILLIONS have already been given away during this COVIDS hysteria? They all came from an empty Treasury vault. What's a few more TRILLION if it indeed ends the Black whimpering. Of course, there will be more TRILLIONS for every swinging "wronged" group, but why not? Like the old joke, except for the US Government it is true, we can't be broke because I still got checks in my book. Write another, and listen to the BBBRRRRRRrrrr of the printing presses. The bright side is, we can eventually all be billionaires - like Weimar and Italy.

Every single person who is on welfare and has been for years has already gotten their slavery reparations. Considering it was the black slave owners in Africa who sold their families and friends into slavery. In America men and women fought to make all people free and not be in bondage. I'm in my 70's and I don't know a single person who was a slave and I have family in the deep south. If these folks can prove THEY were slaves then it is OK, but for the others, NO.

My question is, will they take the time to identify who is from Guinea-basau (sp) ancestors who were slave auctioneers? How do we identify the humans with more melanin who came after the civil war as refugees? And just how much is an accurate settlement for who knows how long some were kept as slaves? How do you monetize abuse settlements? And what of the slaves who liked their living situation and were treated well? Do mulattos get 1/2 payments? And what about native Americans, polish, 1900 immigrant stuffed into Burroughs in New York? When we get reparations from Rome?

I thought that President Lyndon Johnson’s civil rights and so-called “Great Society” policies and programs supported by Congressional Republicans that were passed back during the 1960’s got rid of the old Democrat “Jim Crow” laws, and brought in all sorts of modern benefits and services including voting laws targeting Black Americans, were in affect reparations for the long gone Slavery Period that ended over 150 years ago. No doubt the Democrats believe that they can get their current reparations proposal passed by simply playing the race card against the wimpy Republicans that is bound to scare enough establishment or RINO Republicans into again crossing the aisle to join with their Democrat friends. After all the race card has been a successful weapon for the Democrats to use against the wimpy Republicans in the past.

Hmm! Are the first generation hispanics and asians who had nothing to do with slavery in this country expected to pay the blacks? Will those Kenyans, Somalis,Nigerians and Jamaicans who have come in during the last decade also get reparation $$$?

Much evil is afoot in DC. All the bad things that they can think of to stir up racial hatred are being done. We had a Civil War and this topic was settled afterwards. Now the race baiters are digging up a long dead conflict to gain power and money. The worst kind of hate politics.

Riddle me this. Democrats control the house with what, six member majority. But the Judiciary committee is 25-17? An 8 seat majority? This is begging for massive retaliation when and if the GOP ever gets the majority again.

O.K. once again the definition of reparations is...Taking money from me, a person who has never owned a slave and giving it to you, someone who has never been a slave, so you'll vote for democrats. On the bright side, if reparations becomes law, Planned Parenthood will be bankrupt. No more Black women having abortions. And again, Blacks will never see a single dime of this money. It will be allocated to Black 'community activists' BLM, Antifa, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. After they take their cut, the rest will go back into the 'rat party coffers.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday said President Biden has no plans to remove UN Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield over comments she made that “slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles.”The senior US diplomat described racism and discrimination in the US in taped remarks this week to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.Emerald Robinson of Newsmax asked Psaki at her daily press briefing whether Biden is “going to remove her from her position” — saying the speech hit themes similar to an anti-US diatribe by Chinese diplomats in Alaska last month.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki called the video of 13-year-old Adam Toledo getting shot by a Chicago police office 'chilling' during Friday's press briefing. Psaki said she hadn't spoken to President Joe Biden before the morning briefing, so didn't know if he'd watched it, but said it served as a 'reminder' that 'too often in this country law enforcement uses unnecessary force, too often resulting in the death of black and brown Americans.' She said the shooting was unnecessary after Chicago cops released bodycam footage showing the boy had a gun and dropped it just before the officer opened fire.

Thirteen-year-old Adam Toledo didn’t deserve to die. He didn’t deserve to die for violating curfew. He didn’t deserve to die for unlawfully discharging a weapon. He didn’t deserve to die for being in possession of a handgun. He didn’t deserve to die because he was a black kid in a high-crime area. He didn’t deserve to die for running away when police ordered him to stop. He didn’t even deserve to die for having a gun in his hand and running away from the police. Police are trained to handle situations like this without killing someone.None of those offenses carry a death sentence in a court of law.

Indianapolis— The FBI says that last year it questioned the man who fatally shot eight people at a FedEx plant in Indianapolis. Paul Keenan, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Indianapolis field office, said Friday that agents questioned 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole after his mother called police to say that her son might commit “suicide by cop.” He says agents questioned Hole based on items found in his bedroom. He did not elaborate on what those items were. No crime was identified and the FBI says it did not identify Hole as espousing a racially motivated ideology.THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE.

How did this happen? How did the nation go in an instant from disbelieving every utterance of Donald Trump to robotically repeating — and acting on — every claim that falls out of Joe Biden’s mouth, no matter how disconnected from the truth? The most glaring example involves Biden’s fact-challenged tirade against Georgia’s new voting law. At his first and only press conference, Biden declared the state’s efforts to protect against voter fraud were worse than Jim Crow, “un-American,” “sick,” and “despicable.” (This was the same press conference where moments later Biden bragged about how much time he’s spent with China’s genocidal communist dictator before calling him “a smart, smart guy.”)

When you have a lot of infection in the community, then you want to be careful. That’s why we say, wear a mask.” Host Joy Reid asked if fully vaccinated people can eat in indoor restaurants, fly, or hug their older relatives. Fauci said, “You know, it depends on the level of infection in your community. It doesn’t matter what the level of infection is, if you are vaccinated and you want to have something in the home, you, your family

With all this push for Hollywood “diversity” one often wonders if Hollywood has a vendetta against traditional standards of movie making. According to one insider, that’s exactly the case for at least one major studio. Sci-fi author Nick Cole, co-author of the Galaxy’s Edge series, claimed that during a pitch meeting, a major Hollywood studio passed on a recent project he had been working on, citing the fact that they’re done producing content for “White, Christian, Trash.” Oh wow, that’s a hell of a way to say it. Perhaps this is the sentiment underlying Hollywood’s spate of inclusivity-over-everything pledges they’ve made in the past few years.

Anybody who’s taking Dr. Anthony Fauci seriously probably needs to stop doing so. He endlessly moves the goalposts to maintain his unlimited power over the American people, something Democrats support. That’s why, on Thursday, during House testimony, Rep. Maxine Watters (who is a low-rent harridan) tried to shut down Rep. Jim Jordan’s efforts to get Fauci to say when enough Americans will be vaccinated so that COVID restrictions can end. The past year has shown that Fauci either has no idea what he’s talking about or is trying to advance an agenda that invariably has to do with maintaining the 2020 status quo of lockdowns, isolation, and masks.
