Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has made a campaign promise to black farmers that will give them $5 billion in reparations should he win the 2024 presidential election. Kennedy, a one-time Democrat turned third-party insurgent, was speaking on a recent episode of his podcast with John Boyd Jr., founder of the National Black Farmers Association. Boyd Jr. is behind an effort to sue the Biden administration for watering down a proposed debt relief program aimed at helping people of color and 'socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers' in the agriculture industry.

The correct solution is to get out of the farmers' way and strip away the government regulations that have strangled them. Farming is hard, honest and necessary work so the government should keep their noses out of it. RFK lost what little following he had.

Oops! I thought that this was going to be Biden's October surprise. Promising all black Americans that he would work on providing reparations. "Work on", "address", "seriously consider", etc. are all code words for not actually doing anything, but vote for me.

Since racial reparations have no credible justification, their recipients don't deserve it, so guess matter how much is given, they'll later claim it was not enough, and they need more.

#49, 'Lifting people up and into to a better life' is exactly what the Democ'RATS DO NOT want to do! The 'RATS depend on the 'gimme-dat' dependent class to stay in power. The system is to steal from the middle class and give to, and perpetuate, the dependent class. The dependent class -egged on by the Leftist Lamestream media- then votes for the 'RATS to keep the freebies coming and keep the scam going. Lifting anyone up to a better life involves them working and earning a decent living. At that point they will not want to pay the 'RATS taxes which go to support the gimme-dats, and will start voting Republican and Conservative, which would kick the 'RATS out of power. Can't have THAT!

Now we know for certain: the diary, like the laptop, is real — and its contents are alarming. So why isn't the media all over this? In 2019, Ashley Biden, the then 37-year-old daughter of President Biden and his wife Jill, wrote in her journal about showering with her father at an inappropriate age as well as her fears that, as a child, she was sexually abused. Explosive stuff. Not that you would have heard about it, thanks to a near-complete, years-long media blackout. After undergoing treatment in rehab, Ashley moved to a halfway house in Florida, where she left the diary under a mattress.

Portland's progressive District Attorney Mike Schmidt has conceded victory to a tough-on-crime challenger after his policies were blamed for ruining the city. Schmidt, who is the prosecutor for Multnomah County, which covers the Oregon city, conceded the race to Nathan Vasquez shortly after 7pm ET Wednesday. Voter counts are ongoing, but Vasquez has secured around 54 percent of votes, with Schmidt trailing well behind on 45 percent. The Soros-backed progressive was elected with 77 percent of the vote in 2020 after touting a host of 'equity'-focused policies, in a county that has not voted for a Republican president since 1960.

The fuel will be released from the Northeast Gasoline Supply Reserve, a component of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve that was established in 2014 after Superstorm Sandy disrupted gasoline supplies in the New York City area.

Then the pier came under attack by terrorists, was withdrawn to the Israeli port of Ashdod for repairs while the Biden administration conducted backchannel talks with Hamas urging it not to attack the pier, then redeployed for aid deliveries and it’s been a smashing success.
