Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, on Saturday shared a celebratory message for Juneteenth, a new federal holiday, celebrating the emancipation of Black slaves after the Civil War. "Today is Juneteenth, a special celebration of the fact that our country strives each and every day to make good on its promise to protect the inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all men and all women who are created equal," he tweeted. The tweet emphasizes the freedoms listed in the Declaration of Independence — the same freedoms Americans fought for during the Civil War — rather than the political differences the country is currently grappling with.


Celebrating the day Democrats were finally forced to free their slaves.

I suggest one day to replace all the pandering days that have been foisted on us over the years. We can call it "Piltdown Day" to honor all the fakes.

Real History of Juneteenth. Juneteenth commemorates when the Union Army, on behalf of a Republican Congress and a Republican President, freed the last slave from their Democrat Party slaveholders.

Marxists trying to lay claim that it was they who freed the slaves, the only thing of note the Marxist Democrats did for their cause in 1865 was the founding of the KKK, BTW the Emancipation Proclamation by Lincoln was in 1863, and yes Abe just happened to be Republican.

Ted Cruz, surely no idiot, once again proves Republicans are completely incapable of basic messaging. Instead of his vacuous, cliche ridden tweet he should have taken the opportunity on the passage of this dubious holiday to inform the public of some basic and apparently forgotten facts. He should have pointed out that Juneteenth exists thanks to the Republican Party. Abe Lincoln freed the slaves who were in bondage due to the Democrat Party. Hundred of thousands soldiers summoned by the Republican controlled Federal government died freeing black people. Republicans passed the amendments that codified the citizenship of black people in the face of relentless opposition by the party of slavery. When will Republicans value the cornucopia of issues served on silver platters by the racist Democrats? Juneteenth should never have been made a federal holiday but since it was inform the people, including black people, just how it was made possible and which party wanted to keep slavery alive.

I disagree that a conservative senator from Texas should be RINO'd for acknowledging a date that is significant to a large number of his constituents. I'm more upset that Cruz used communist twitter than the content of his message. I think even Trump, if he were in the WH as he should be, would have done something similar, and given the veto-proof majority vote on the bill in Congress, he'd have probably signed it. I never heard President Trump snub blacks, latinos, or any particular ethnic group, gratuitously or otherwise. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), initially was blocking the bill but he withdrew his hold and attended a Juneteenth celebration in WI and was booed by the crowd. Cruz was not over the top pandering like some politicians from the states that many of the negative repliers are from. The Senate unanimously passed holiday resolution on Tuesday. The House vote on the bill passed 415-14. Like Cruz or not, he's better than the average Republican bear and a darned site better than any democrat.

#20 - I read it, and I am still not cutting Cruz any slack. His job is to stand up to this kind of ignorant pandering stupidity - not participate in it. Not that he is alone by any stretch - there wasn't a single republican senator that opposed this tripe, and only 15 or so congressman. Even MTG votes for this BS. And what happened? Not two hours after they got their latest demand, here comes Cori Bush demanding reparations on top. Whatever you subsidize, you get more of. I expect Republicans to stop feeding this nonsense, and draw a line against it. Stop worrying about losing the 2% of the black vote and grow some balls. If they gave a million dollars each to blacks in reparations, they would still get 2% of the vote.

It's a very basic concept of journalism: Cover the stories that impact your viewers and readers most, the stories they most care about. But for one very big story, there's been relative silence from our national media, just passing mentions. It is the skyrocketing violent crime that is paralyzing many major American cities while prompting record numbers of police officers either resigning or retiring. Here's a look around the country at what many cities are dealing with: New York City: Despite having the country's largest police force, the city’s murder rate is up 48 percent over 2019 (pre-pandemic), while shootings have increased by 107 percent in two years.

That was Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse's response to a question from a local journalist about his membership of the Bailey's Beach Club, a private and all-white beach club in tony Newport. That a person of leadership in America belongs to such a club is outrageous. That a Democratic Senator who has spent quite a bit if time denouncing systemic racism would is doubly so. "We can and must do better to root out systemic racism in its many forms and meet America's full promise of justice for all," the Senator said in a press release last year. The hypocrisy is enraging.

In a nation of hundreds of millions of people, each with their own thoughts, beliefs, and ideas, there will be those with ugly thoughts committing ugly deeds. Racial prejudice will to a certain degree never be truly eradicated. And yet, we have done an excellent job as a country in substantially minimizing these attitudes socially, and even ensuring racial prejudices are eliminated at an institutional level within government. Although we are not perfect, in regard to race and opinions about race, we are living in the best of times; our nation is not recognizable as the place where segregation ruled throughout the South as recently as the 1960s.

President Biden repeatedly framed his campaign and his administration as defending “the rule of law” after what he and others portrayed as the lawless reign of President Trump. The image of Biden as restoring the Justice Department back into the good graces of the law and the courts is reinforced regularly in the media. What is not being as fully reported is that Biden actually has racked up a litany of notable court losses that may now exceed those of his predecessor in his first six months.

As a candidate, Joe Biden’s number one promise was to “unite” America. Yet in his first months as president, his number one priority has been to divide our country by race and gender at every turn. There is no clearer example than the Biden administration’s new effort aimed at indoctrinating America’s schoolchildren with some of the most toxic and anti-American theories ever conceived. It is vital for Americans to understand what this initiative would do, what drives it and, most importantly, how we can stop it. For decades, the America-blaming left has been relentlessly pushing a vision of America that casts our history, culture, traditions, and

Some 250 years after the Declaration of Independence declared that "all men are created equal," and almost 60 years after Martin Luther King dreamed that his children would "not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character," the federal government announced it wants to teach American children that they are not equal, and that skin color does matter. Under the misleading name of "anti-racism," the Department of Education has proposed to direct federal funds to the teaching of racial discrimination in America's elementary and secondary school systems—to encourage students to identify and to treat others differently according to race.

U.S. Catholic bishops overwhelmingly approved the drafting of a “teaching document” that many of them hope will rebuke Catholic politicians, including President Joe Biden, for receiving Communion despite their support for abortion rights. The decision, vehemently opposed by a minority of bishops, came despite appeals from the Vatican for a more cautious and collegial approach to the divisive issue. And it raises questions of how closely the bishops will be able to cooperate with the Biden administration on issues such as immigration and racial injustice. The result of the vote — 168 in favor and 55 against — was announced Friday

At issue is a new Colorado law that requires companies with even a few employees in the state to disclose the expected salary or pay range for each open role they advertise, including remote positions. The rule’s aim is to narrow gender wage gaps and provide greater pay transparency for employees. To avoid having to disclose that information, though, some employers seeking remote workers nationwide are saying that those living in Colorado need not apply. Across the internet, an array of job listings state the work can’t be done in Colorado.

Perhaps so, but something from the vaccines is causing deformations and apparent inflammation in red blood cells, as evidenced by images from microscopy photos. Images of blood cells taken before and after the vaccines can be seen starting about two minutes into the five-minute video. Postvaccine red blood cells exhibit rough instead of smooth edges, irregular shapes, and grouping together over time which is described as the “beginning form of thrombosis,” or blood clots.
