  • In The Bible, Abraham Lincoln Found The Antidote To Slavery, Despair, And Death

    The Federalist ^ | 02/19/2024 | Paul Krause
    Remember Lincoln for his courage and his political perseverance in saving the Union, but also remember the source of his courage.Not long ago, the Bible was considered a foundational book for American society — a work that stood alongside the Declaration of Independence for its contributions to American politics. However, few American presidents have been shaped by their reading of the Bible as Abraham Lincoln was. From a skeptic and deist to a daily reader who made more than 200 references to Scripture in his speeches and other writings, Lincoln’s transformation as an inspirational leader coincided with his transformed relationship...
  • My Ancestors Were Enslaved—But Their Freedom Came at a Price for Others

    Like most African Americans, I come from a family with a history that includes generations of enslavement. But unlike most, the men and women who held my ancestors in bondage were not white, they were Native American—people who were themselves oppressed by the process that led to my family’s freedom.
  • Mayorkas to NBC News: “We Don’t Bear Responsibility” for Open US Border and 11 Million Illegal Alien Invasion

    How is it possible that Republicans cannot impeach this rotten, destructive man? DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas joined Kristen Welker on Meet the Press on Sunday to discuss the Biden open borders invasion at the US southern border. During the interview Secretary Mayorkas, a serial liar, told Welker “We don’t bear responsibility” for the open US border and the 11 million illegals who have invaded the US under their watch. Of course, this latest disgusting lie by Alejandro Mayorkas is part of The Democrat’s Nine Point Plan to blame Joe Biden’s border crisis on Republicans and Donald Trump.

    On Wednesday, lawmakers in the state of California introduced a series of bills aimed at providing reparations for historical slavery, which would include giving out property and financial compensation for alleged descendants of slaves.As Politico reports, the bills represent the first of their kind in the country, after a rising left-wing movement in favor of reparations first emerged shortly after the 2020 race riots. The California bills had been in the works for the last several years after Governor Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) set up a reparations “task force” to make suggestions, which led to a 111-page report issued last year.The...

    My name is Simon Aban Deng. I am from South Sudan. I am a Shilluk. I am a Christian. I am a former slave. I will not forget that day when Arab Sudanese government troops came and raided my village. We didn’t know what was going on until we heard gunshots from every direction. I was only 9 years old, but the militiamen were shooting anybody they saw, including children. Myself, my family, and five of my friends had to run. But the Arabs ran after us: While we were running, they shot two of my friends. We ran wildly,...

    Elon Musk’s Tesla has been one of the largest electric vehicle manufacturers in recent years thanks to its range of reasonably priced, high-tech EVs like the Tesla Model Y and the newly introduced Cybertruck. Chinese manufacturers have made huge progress in recent years by expanding across Europe and North America with the aim of securing a significant global market share. Major Chinese firms can benefit from cheaper production costs and greater access to materials needed to manufacture electric vehicles, putting them ahead of the competition. Elon Musk has now warned that manufacturers from China will have “significant success” outside of...

    New York Democrat Representative Jamaal Bowman is co-funding a $14 trillion reparation bill against the federal government, citing ongoing systematic racism, American slavery, and the aftermath of it. The bill, HR 414, would support the National Publishers Association, the National Association of Black Broadcasters, and the “restoration of voting rights for persons currently or previously incarcerated,” while providing free college education for Black Americans at the 107 HBCUs (historically black colleges and universities) across the nation.

    Biden deputy campaign manager Quentin Fulks went on NBC's Meet the Press to reassure voters that "restoring every woman's right to abort her unwanted child that was granted by the Supreme Court in its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision is President Biden's top priority. It is unfathomable that women today have less rights than their ancestors had years ago." "Just the other day Vice-President Harris pointed out that preventing a prospective mother from aborting her child is a cruel act," Fulks said. "Not only does it go against the 13th Amendment's abolition of slavery, it also subjects the child to...

    Slavery didn’t start in 1492 when Columbus came to the New World. And it didn’t start in 1619 when the first slaves landed in Jamestown. It’s not a white phenomenon. The real story of slavery is long and complex. Candace Owens explains.
  • Why the Civil Rights Act didn't workStar Parker: Government has become our new religion, and blacks have suffered for it

    This year, 2024, marks the 60th anniversary of the signing into law of the landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act. Soon we observe the national day set aside to note and honor the leader of the movement that led to that act becoming law: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We must ask how, after 60 years, with vast changes in the world, with developments in technology unimaginable 60 years ago, that we remain obsessed with race. How is it that claims of racism, injustice and unfairness persist like nothing happened? Indeed, data suggest that Black Americans, on average, still lag behind...
  • Smart Phone Smuggling: Mexican Cartels Use Apps to Sneak Immigrants into U.S.

    As migrants pour into the U.S. illegally, Mexican cartels are using smartphones to facilitate their smuggling, making payments to drivers and manipulating the Customs and Border Protection app to get more people in. The CBP One app allows entrants to the United States to schedule appointments to appear at U.S. ports of entry. Ostensibly, its users must be in northern Mexico to schedule an appointment, though reporting from the Washington Examiner suggested that users have turned to virtual private networks (VPN) to evade the geographic requirements. House Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Mark E. Green, R-Tenn., confirmed to the outlet...

    GOP presidential primary candidate Nikki Haley said Wednesday she had assumed it was a “given” that the Civil War was about slavery when giving her controversial answer on the topic last week. “What I should have said immediately was that the Civil War was about slavery, but I just assumed that that was a given, and I went on and said it was also about the role of government and about the rights of people economically, socially and otherwise,” Haley said in a Fox News interview Wednesday. The former United Nations ambassador and South Carolina governor faced backlash for her...

    Well, this week Republican Presidential candidate Nikki Haley said something that upset people who weren’t going to vote for her anyway. At a Town Hall setting someone asked her “What caused the American Civil War?” It’s not at all a question with great relevance 163 years later, but it is a modern litmus test for many people on the left, i.e. people who likely weren’t going to vote for her anyway. History is amazing. Like all hindsight, it can be 20-20 in vision and clarity. Over the past 30 years, this is less and less the case. Led by late-night...

    The Nikki Haley slavery tempest in a teapot continues to roil some circles. For those who have a life and have been spending it with family and friends this Christmas, some background: The candidate for the Republican presidential nomination is in political hot water for her answer to a questioner at a New Hampshire campaign event in which she failed to list “slavery” among the causes of the American Civil War. She’s subsequently admitted slavery was among those causes, while adding that she thought the question was posed by a Democrat plant in the audience. The New York Times continues...

    Democrats and supporters of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis criticized former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley on Wednesday after she refused to name slavery as the primary cause of the Civil War. Haley, 51, made the apparent gaffe during a town hall event in Berlin, NH, after a voter asked the former United Nations ambassador to identify the cause of the deadliest war in American history. The White House hopeful appeared caught off guard by the question and failed to mention the antebellum South’s “peculiar institution” in her response. “I think the cause of the Civil War was basically how government...

    Here is my question. Was the North intending to end slavery to make growing cotton in the South untenable for the plantation owners in order to bankrupt them so that the Northern Textile barons could take over the land? I know the South seceded because the North was trying to end slavery, which would have raised the cost of growing cotton because the plantation would now have to pay wages, instead of trading labour for bodily needs. This likely was not an affordable option for the landowners, because the North was not going to pay a penny more for cotton...

    House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) said his ancestral ties to slavery do not reflect his work toward a “colorblind society.” A recent examination from Reuters found at least three of Johnson’s direct ancestors were slaveholders. “As has been well-documented, the horrific legacy of slavery touches the ancestry of political leaders across the spectrum, including Presidents Biden and Obama,” Taylor Haulsee, a spokesperson for Johnson, said in a statement to The Hill. “But the actions of people who lived hundreds of years ago do not have any bearing on the Speaker’s lifelong work for a colorblind society.”

    Beware of those who might feign sympathy or pity on you because they want power over you. Martin Luther King Jr., in his famous speech, had a vision that was, for a long time, woven into the American psyche: “I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.” However, the evolution of the relationship between the sons has been marked by complexity and adversity. Since its establishment in January 1828, the Democrat...
