President Joe Biden signed a law Thursday to make 'Juneteenth National Independence Day' a federal holiday, starting from tomorrow. 'Juneteenth marks both the long, hard night of slavery and subjugation and a promise of a brighter morning to come,' Biden said at the White House signing ceremony, surrounded by Democratic and Republican guests. 'This is a day of profound weight and profound power, a day in which we remember the moral stain and the terrible toll that slavery took on the country - and continues to take.' On Wednesday night, the House of Representatives passed the bill with 14 Republicans voting against it. In the Senate,

So blacks represent 13% of the population but get 18% of the federal holidays? Equity problem I think.

Juneteenth happened in Texas in 1865. Biden does not mention that his Delaware did not abolish slavery until December, 1865.

I fully support Juneteenth as a national holiday, to honor the fact that a great nation was able to right a wrong, proving that freedom, in the end, prevails.. So let us hoist our great U.S. flag, and celebrate our wonderful democratic republic!

The history is that the Dimokkkrap party fought to keep slavery, created and perpetuated racism in America, created jim crow and the kkk, and now is blaming everybody else for what they did and using that blame game as a political weapon against their foes and to make sure nobody has time to recollect the history. As kamel a Hairass says, joe’s a racist. And her family were slave owners. Restitution should start with them.

My Congressional Representative here in Virginia voted yes on this bill. I emailed him yesterday expressing my displeasure as the hundreds of thousands of dead Union Soldiers is more than enough to commemorate the freeing of the last slaves in Texas and that we don't need another useless federal holiday as there is already a MLK day. One day for veterans. One day for our service dead. An entire month for Black Americans, Another month for LG*** pride month, etc ad nauseum. And I share part of an email a friend received yesterday who works for the Dept of Transportation/Secretary Butigieg: This date marks an occasion to reflect on the enduring legacy of slavery in this country. The corrosive repercussions of slavery and Jim Crow are still all too apparent today, and the machinery of segregation is still embedded in our lives—including many dimensions of transportation infrastructure, where disparities have had a profound effect on job access, educational outcomes, and economic participation. Still, there is much to celebrate. The Biden-Harris Administration is ready to support Black communities across America to realize their own dreams for the future. For our part, this Department will continue working to ensure that all Americans can move freely and without fear, by delivering safe, equitable access to transportation. We would also do well to remember Black Americans' role in building this country. Emerging from centuries of wrenching grief and hardship, Black voices have added in innumerable ways to culture and science; governance and policy; art and activism. These contributions reverberate across the history, a history that we recognize in new ways with this Federal observation of what happened 156 years ago.

Biden's Juneteenth speech came up on TV yesterday. We changed the channel. Don't want to hear it. We ended slavery, and made it illegal. There is nothing else to do. You cannot wash away the sin of slavery. There are things that cannot be walked back, and reparations won't 'fix' anything. A day set aside to remember the events of 9/11 is more appropriate than Juneteenth. If they are going to remember Juneteenth, they should also remember 9/11. Perhaps that is the message to send Congress and our BS President.

Remember it was President Trump last year who first proposed that Congress designate June 19th as being a national holiday named Juneteenth, National Emancipation Day, after which the Democrat Congress took no action. But now Biden and Harris are taking credit for the Democrat Congress just designating June 19th as Juneteenth, National Independence Day, as a new national holiday. That designation by the Democrat Congress was designed to diminish and encroach upon July 4th which as always been known as Independence Day for all of America. Any reading of history will show that it was on June 19th in a year following the 1860’s US Civil War, was the date that the last slaves in Texas were told by the US Army operating under the American flag, that they had been emancipated by President Lincoln, and were no longer considered to be slaves. A historic happening that became memorialized in Black communities that has been celebrated by those communities as “Juneteenth”. There was never any indication that the Black people of those times ever considered that they had ever gained independence from the USA. Obviously the Democrat’s reason for designating Juneteenth as the special “Independence Day” rather than as being “Emancipation Day” for Black people who descended from slaves, is just another effort by the Democrats to separate as much of the Black population as possible from the rest of the greater US population who will continue to celebrate July 4th as Independence Day. The reason that the Democrats did that is obviously for the Democrat partisan political purpose of keeping low information Black people locked in as leftist and socialist oriented future Democrat voters.

An interesting buried line in the article shows how sensitive the right is to being attacked as racist. Rep. Matt Rosendale of Montana said an effort by the left' to push 'identity politics'. 'Let's call an ace an ace,' the lawmaker said on Wednesday. 'This is an effort by the left to create a day out of whole cloth to celebrate identity politics as part of its larger efforts to make 'critical race theory' the reigning ideology of our country. Rosendale obviously was thinking of using the actual "Let's call a spade a spade" quote that has always referred to the playing card suit but he realized that he would be attacked for being a racist if he did. This is how the left works. They control the language which controls how people think The date of real historic significance should be January 1, 1863 when the Emancipation Proclamation was issued by Lincoln making slavery illegal in all the United States. Juneteenth was promoted because it originated in Texas which the left considers a white racist bastion of Trump supporters. Everything is politics with these people. Welcome to the real "Truman Show".

Maybe, just maybe, after they start teaching more about why it took so long for them to notify those in Texas that slaves were free, they'll also start to see how it was those same Democrats in the South who bargained for the opportunity to punish African-Americans. How Democrats in 1877 gave up their challenges to the 1876 Presidential election and allowed Rutherford B. Hayes to be sworn-in, after being promised the Feds would leave the South where they were enforcing the Reconstruction Era progress. This allowed them to install laws and regulations that became known as "JIm Crow" laws. This is the history of the Democrat Party. Highly recommend watching the History Channel's mini-series, GRANT.

#39, the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 freed slaves, but only in Confederate states. Lincoln believed that freeing the slaves in Confederate states would cause them to rise up in revolt against their masters. The slaves did not rise up in any appreciable numbers.

There are many lessons to be learned from America’s adventure in Afghanistan but an easy one is that a crudely equipped force using guerrilla tactics is fully capable of prevailing over one with superior firepower. That lesson should have been clear already from Vietnam

A Democratic congressman from California suggested that the Catholic Church ought to lose its tax-exempt status if the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) decides to follow Church law and deny Communion to pro-abortion politicians like President Joe Biden. In a June 18 tweet, Rep. Jared Huffman (D-CA) said, “If they’re going to politically weaponize religion by ‘rebuking’ Democrats who support women’s reproductive choice, then a ‘rebuke’ of their tax-exempt status may be in order.” Huffman, who serves on a variety of caucuses — including the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Equality Caucus and the

Team USA's inclusion of white forward Kevin Love on the Olympic roster is an example of 'tokenism,' according to retired NBA star Jalen Rose, who says black Phoenix Suns center Deandre Ayton would make a better choice even though he's from the Bahamas. 'Kevin Love is on the team because of tokenism,' Rose, now an ESPN commentator, said on his podcast. 'Don't be scared to make an all-black team representing the United States of America. I'm disappointed by that. Anybody that watched the league this year knows Kevin Love did not have a stellar season."

Nancy Pelosi spoke today about “the root causes” of the January 6 Capitol riot: “the white supremacy, the anti-Semitism, the Islamophobia, all the rest of it that was so evident when you see a sweatshirt on one of the people saying, ‘Camp Auschwitz.’” She repeated the common and yet completely unsubstantiated claim that the Capitol incident constituted an “insurrection,” and once again claimed that Trump “incited” the “insurrection,” in flagrant disregard for the fact that Trump told the demonstrators to remain peaceful. Her list of the three “root causes” of this sham “insurrection” were, in effect, a list of those that she and the Biden Justice Department intend

Earlier today, as RedState reported, Joe Biden launched into another dementia-laden rant where he talked about nuking Americans and shooting deer in kevlar vests. No, I’m not being facetious. That actually happened (see Biden Accidently Makes Best Ever for Second Amendment in Speech Promoting Gun Control Initiatives). In one of the best arguments for the Second Amendment ever spoken by a president, Biden asserted that no one can stand up to the government without F-15s and nuclear weapons. He seems to have a thing for the F-15, having mentioned it several times in this context and perhaps not realizing that the U.S. Military has an array of other fighter-bombers to murder

A Federal Aviation Administration advisory group is urging the agency to replace words like “airman” and “cockpit” with gender-neutral terms like “aviator” and “flight deck.” The FAA’s Drone Advisory Committee put forth the recommendations in a report released Wednesday, part of a broader push for equity in the agency and aviation industry. “Research shows that the utilization of gender-neutral language can lead to a more inclusive environment that draws more people to the industry and helps keep them there,” the report states. The committee offered several alternatives for terms commonly used in the industry, such as using “manufactured” or “fabricated” instead of “man-made.”

A Massachusetts town has created a fund to pay reparations to black residents as communities and institutions across the country look to atone for slavery, discrimination and past wrongs amid the nation's ongoing racial reckoning. The Amherst Town Council on Monday voted 12-1 in favor of establishing the fund and requiring a two-thirds vote of the council to authorize any spending from it, The Daily Hampshire Gazette reported. The town, which is located some 90 miles from Boston and has a population of just under 38,000, has yet to decide how a person would become eligible for the reparation fund,

Rudy Giuliani’s law license was suspended by the New York Supreme Court on Thursday for making false statements related to voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election, according to court papers.The court ruled there is “uncontroverted evidence” that Giuliani made false statements while he was acting as legal counsel for former President Donald Trump.“These false statements were made to improperly bolster respondent’s narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client,” the ruling stated.

A liberal arts college in Massachusetts has warned its students and faculty against using 'violent language'—even banning the phrase 'trigger warning' for its association with guns. Brandeis University in Waltham has created an anti-violence resource called the Prevention, Advocacy & Resource Center which provides information and advice to students and staff.(Snip) The college claims that 'picnic is often associated with lynchings of black people in the United States, during which white spectators were said to have watched while eating, referring to them as picnics or other terms involving racial slurs against black people.' Picnic is derived from the French 'pique-nique,'
