Biden Is Breaking the Law

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it illegal to discriminate on the basis of race. Yet that is exactly what Pres. Biden is doing on behalf of his nominee to the Supreme Court. Republicans should name this fact repeatedly in the hearings and otherwise refuse to participate.

Federal prosecutors should bring charges against Biden both for this and for his daily defiance of immigration laws. Biden is operating as though he had been given the powers of Hitler under Germany’s Enabling Act of 1933, which allowed Hitler to do whatever he liked.

Washington’s Birthday


Today, February 22, is Washington’s Birthday. For most of our history, it was celebrated as a national holiday and deserves to be again. Lincoln’s Birthday can be combined with that of Martin Luther King and celebrated as “Black Freedom Day.”

However great the merits of Martin Luther King may be, they do not outweigh those of the Father of Our Country, which is what Washington was. Yet this is what is implied by giving King a national holiday but not Washington.

The communists, socialists, and progressives who attack Washington for owning slaves have no solid ground on which to do so, for, unlike Washington, who sought the end of slavery and ultimately freed his slaves, they seek the reimposition of slavery—for everyone.

Socialism requires that everyone work for the government, for whatever pittance the government chooses to pay. This is slavery.

Reason Is Infinitely More Important Than Race

 A commonality of skin color and associated facial features is as nothing compared to the fact that human beings of all races share the faculty of reason. The former may allow for an interesting group photo once in a while.

The latter is what underlies the accumulation and application of knowledge and gives to the members of all races the ability to produce the goods and services that the members of all races need and desire.

Every day the members of all races benefit from the work of the members of all other races in that greatest phenomenon of voluntary social cooperation, the division of labor and capitalism.
