    Joe Biden has become the 46th president of the United States. He will face many challenges on the global stage. The Middle East, for one, can be counted on to provide multiple crises and opportunities for America. Below, we examine the most significant of them. In the past six months four Arab-Muslim majority states normalized relations with the Jewish state. They proceeded to establish diplomatic and commercial relations with Israel; they include Bahrain, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Sudan, and Morocco. The question now is whether the Biden administration will continue this trend, and extend peace between Israel and additional...

  • College professor calls for 'vote reparations' for black voters that would count their ballots twice

    A law school professor called for “vote reparations” for black people to make elections fairer by giving them twice the voting power of other citizens. "Vote reparations would empower us to replace oppressive institutions with life-affirming structures of economic, social, and political equality," Brandon Hasbrouck, an assistant professor at the Washington and Lee University School of Law, wrote in the Nation last week. "And if our elected representatives did not prioritize this transformational work, we could vote them out." Hasbrouck, who teaches race relations law and a class on critical race theory, argued that the “core problem” of the United...

    Vote reparations would empower us to replace oppressive institutions with life-affirming structures of equality.Black votes in this country are worth less than white votes. Joe Biden won the Electoral College because Black voters in Atlanta, Detroit, Milwaukee, and Philadelphia turned out in significant numbers. But even with overwhelming Black support—94 percent of Detroit voted for Biden!—the outcomes in Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania were worryingly close.One core problem is the Electoral College. Wyoming, which has just 580,000 residents and is 93 percent white, gets three electors because of its two senators and one representative in the House. By comparison, Georgia’s...

    The progenitors and developers of CRT subjectively believe that racism is ingrained within American society and theorize that institutional racism is also ingrained and is utilized structurally to perpetuate so-called white privilege. Critical Race Theory (CRT) is founded upon and rooted in an obsession over racially stereotyping others, illogically proffers Gross Generalizations, and utilizes the Kafka Trap that whites are inherently biased and racist. It pushes woke "White Fragility", ultimately dispensing a system where accusations of racism are proof of it, denial of it is guilt, and disagreement over it is racist per (but not limited to) one of its...

    Dubbed the Compton Pledge, the guaranteed income program will begin distributing free cash to 800 residents of the city in Los Angeles County for a period of two years. Compton Mayor Aja Brown has said that the ambitious program is the largest of its kind in for any city in the U.S. The majority Black and Latino city is just the latest in a growing list of cities across the country, and the world, that is experimenting with new ways to put money in residents’ hands give the grave economic calamity caused by the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic. “I recognized...

    Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Michael Ramirez suggests that California should pay reparations—not for slavery, but for subjecting everyone in the state to a lousy political class. He has a point. As the Golden State’s landscape burned, power grid faltered, and social fabric frayed, Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law a bill empaneling a nine-member task force to “study and develop reparation proposals for African Americans,” with “special consideration for African Americans who are descendants of persons enslaved in the United States.” California became the 31st member of the union 170 years ago, in the Compromise of 1850. It entered as a...
  • Ignoring Current Problems, California Comes Up With Illogical Reparations Bill

    10/08/2020 3:47:44 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 15 replies ^ | October 8, 2020 | Victor Davis Hanson
    California's state legislature just passed, and Gov. Gavin Newsom signed, Assembly Bill 3121 to explore providing reparations to California's African American population -- 155 years after the abolition of slavery. Apparently, when California's one-party government cannot find solutions to current existential crises, it turns to divisive issues that have little to do with the safety and well-being of its 40 million citizens. California has the highest gas taxes in the nation, even as its ossified state highways remain clogged and dangerous. Why, then, does Sacramento keep pouring billions of dollars into the now-calcified high-speed rail project? When fires raged, killed...

    As companies grapple with their roles in contributing to racial equality and inequality, diversity and inclusion programs have taken on more importance in the corporate world. But in retail, one well-regarded bicycle brand led by an industry legend is innovating a more direct approach to address racial inequality: reparations in the form of a 45% discount for Black customers.
  • California: Reparations for What?

    10/03/2020 8:44:49 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 22 replies ^ | October 3 2020 | Carl Horowitz
    California has been part of the United States of America for 170 years. And if there is one thing that the Golden State hasn’t been noted for during all this time, it’s slavery. That hasn’t stopped its legislature from passing, or Governor Gavin Newsom from signing, a bill to explore ways of compensating descendants of black slaves. Predictably, supporters see the law as a model for other states and the nation. On September 30, Governor Newsom signed AB 3121, which will create a nine-member task force to explore ways in which Californians – certain Californians anyway – could be forced...

    The State of California will study reparations to black Americans, thanks to a bill signed into law Wednesday by Gov. Gavin Newsom. AB 3121 will create a nine-member “Task Force to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans, with a Special Consideration for African Americans Who are Descendants of Persons Enslaved in the United States,” according to the text of the bill.

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law a bill Wednesday that will establish a task force to study and develop proposals for paying reparations to the descendants of enslaved Black people. Assembly Bill 3121 calls for a nine-member body to make recommendations on what type of compensation, if any, should be awarded and who should be eligible. In addition, the group can recommend to the state Legislature how California can offer a formal apology "for the perpetration of gross human rights violations and crimes against humanity on African slaves and their descendants" and the elimination of state laws that disproportionately...

    SACRAMENTO — With Gov. Gavin Newsom’s signature, California became the first state government in the country on Wednesday to adopt a law to study and develop proposals for potential reparations to descendants of enslaved people and those impacted by slavery. Newsom said the new law and bipartisan support for its passage is proving “a paradigm that we hope will be resonant all across the United States.” In a year of national protests against racial injustice, state lawmakers approved Assembly Bill 3121 to force the state to begin to confront its racist history and systemic disparities that persist today. Although California...

    President Donald Trump announced details of his “Platinum Plan” for African-Americans Friday, which would include increasing capital in black communities by $500 billion, designate the KKK and Antifa as terrorist organizations, and making lynching a national hate crime. The president has pushed the idea of labeling Antifa as a terrorist organization since 2019. It’s expected he would make this happen through executive orders. Trump pushed the idea to the forefront again following violent nationwide protests sparked by the death of George Floyd. “The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” the president tweeted at the...

    Danny Glover, Democratic lawmakers say 'we can't wait' longer for slavery reparations "The time for reparations is now," former Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer said during a discussion with Glover. Actor and activist Danny Glover and former 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer joined Democratic lawmakers to call for the passage of a bill to set up a federal slavery reparations committee, emphasizing that "we can't wait" any longer for reparations. "We can't wait," Steyer said during a virtual discussion held as part of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual legislative conference. "This is the moment. The time for reparations...

    California keeps going out of its way to drive residents to Texas or somewhere else. We learned that California has set up a panel to study reparations.  This is the story: The panel would study the effects slavery had on California and recommend to the legislature no later than 2023 what type of compensation would be appropriate, how it might be dispersed and who could be eligible to receive it. The task force could also recommend other forms of redress besides money. According to a state lawmaker, slavery is responsible for higher rates of incarceration, homelessness, and unemployment for African-Americans.  No one...

    The California Assembly will vote before Monday on a state Senate bill that creates a task force to look at the question of slavery reparations. The measure passed the state Senate in a bipartisan vote. The radical left is getting ready for a Biden presidency and a Democratic Party takeover of the U.S. House and Senate by laying the groundwork for their agenda at the state level. Slavery reparations will be close to the top of the radical’s wish list if Biden wins.Associated Press: “Let’s be clear: Chattel slavery, both in California and across our nation, birthed a legacy of...

    In the early hours of Aug. 10, caravans from across the city ransacked high-end stores in and around downtown after rumors circulated on social media that Chicago police had shot and killed a 15-year-old Black boy on the South Side. Police did shoot 20-year-old Latrell Allen, who is Black, the day before. Police allege Allen fired gunshots at them, but officers were not equipped with body-worn cameras, and no other footage of the incident has been made available. Allen is expected to recover. Images of people walking in and out of department stores with their hands full of products transfixed...

    Who Should Pay? Who Should Get? As we all know, talk of reparations for injustice is everywhere. But here’s a headline, appearing in the British Spectator magazine, that hit home to Virgil, old Roman that he is: “Italy owes Wales reparations for the wrongs of the Roman Empire.” The author, one Lloyd Evans—an impeccable Welsh name, that—declared: Let me add my voice to the clamour on behalf of this island’s indigenous Celtic people. My family are from Llanelli in Carmarthenshire and I believe that my compatriots have an excellent case to make against the Roman Empire. Yes, Evans said he...
