‘Race is a lie. Stop believing it’

We are made in the image of God. He designed us and defined us, and when we compromise His description of who we are we not only compromise the dignity of man but also denigrate the very definition of God.

Back to 大华彩票, back to basics

- The Washington Times

Politicians and unions are mostly focusing on what 大华彩票 facilities should look like when faculty and students return, mostly proposing the same health and safety mandates that have been followed since the COVID-19 lockdown.

Treaty of Trianon, a Hungarian tragedy

One hundred years ago, June 4, 1920, the Hungarian delegation to the Paris Peace Conference was forced to sign the punishing Treaty of Trianon, arguably the most severe of all the post-World War I settlements concluded at the conference.

Democrats, party of lawlessness, press to collapse police

- The Washington Times

Eighteen state attorneys general -- Democrats, of course -- have petitioned Congress for "explicit authority" to investigate local police departments for evidence of abusive and unconstitutional action. Mark this moment as an official calendar day of Democrats' quest to collapse the law and order around the country大华官网.

King wouldn't condone violence

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream in which people would be judged by the content of their character rather than by the color of their skin. That is a great goal. Those who demonstrate peacefully are allies of King's goal. Those who demonstrate violently are enemies of King's goal.

Justice can't be based on lies

There have been attempts at so-called dialogue about race in America. But if that dialogue starts with unspoken inequality, its results will not help race relations, but instead will cause them to increase. When the dialogue starts with the premises that all white people are racists and all black Americans are innocent subjects of their racism, it is a lie. When the government's idea of equal justice is that all black Americans are committing crimes because they are poor, so let's cut them a lot of slack, that is not equal justice. When a black American robs a white grocer and shoots at him to kill, then gets off in court with a slap on the wrist while the grocer lives with the debilitating results of a heart attack from being shot at, that is not equal justice.

George Floyd doesn't a 'systemic racism' make

- The Washington Times

George Floyd, by video accounts, died a horrific, even murderously minded death at the hands of an uncaring police officer who locked his black victim against the pavement for several painful minutes, knee on neck, as the life seeped from his body. But that doesn't mean all police hate blacks.

Drew Brees takes patriotic, righteous -- lonely -- stand for America

- The Washington Times

Drew Brees needs support. It's the last chance to save a U.S. pastime from devolving into a pot of anti-American vitriol where police are painted as enemies, the country大华官网 is painted as inherently racist, the Constitution is pounded as unjust, and the game -- remember the game? -- is just another platform to air political grievances.

What's in a COVID-19 model?

This is definitely not the summer people had been planning on, thanks to COVID-19. People are understandably frustrated by months of lockdown, and there is growing pressure on governors and county officials to reopen.

Real action needed

We are now more than a week past the inexcusable killing of George Floyd. Since that time, we have experienced daily riots (called protests by much of the media) and the establishment of ineffective curfews. We have watched rocks and bricks get hurled at our law-enforcement personnel. And we have seen the stores of law-abiding owners broken into and looted.
