Could The Breonna Taylor Estate Fund The Change They Seek?

Breonna Taylor Estate

Reports have surfaced that the estate of recently-deceased Breonna Taylor came into a large sum of money after a settlement with the city of Louisville. In addition to the $12 million settlement with the family, the city of Louisville will also be implementing programs that encourage its police force to reside within city limits and be able to send social workers on certain emergency calls. That the timing of this occurs prior to any criminal charges being brought forward against officers raises separate questions about the motive and how they even decided money was owed. Now, it is the philosophy of this writer that each individual should legally maximize whatever earnings they can accrue over the course of a lifetime. Even if

I Guess Race Explains Every Bad Thing In History

Race Matters

Ask most Americans right now how important race is, and you’re likely to encounter a long-winded diatribe against systemic racism and white supremacy. So, super important. All those dastardly white founders you learned about in grade school were actually monsters. They secretly didn’t care if America had individual liberty, religious freedoms, and limited government intervention; they just wanted to find a way to cement the institution of slavery for all time. Racism explains everything good and bad about America - ever. America is successful because it was built upon the backs of slaves. America is also the worst because it had black slaves owned by white men. Put another way, everything good about America is due to the work of slaves,

Antifa Loves To Endorse What It Alleges To Hate

Portland Antifa Camp

A common statement of leftists is that if they did not have double standards they would have no standards at all. The latest such example comes from an intrepid YouTuber who did some exploration in the failed city of Portland. The obvious question that no one in the media seems to care about is how so many unemployed and talentless young people are able to engage in their endless tantrums without suffering for lack of basic necessities. How are they living - eating, sleeping, and functioning - despite no apparent ability nor desire to procure such remedies to meet their baser needs? The answer comes to us, not surprisingly, in the form of government handouts. Yes, the government that they claim

Biden Suddenly Flushed With Cash, But Where Did It Really Come From?

Act Blue money

In the vein that money is speech, one needs to have a discussion on campaign financing. Who and where is campaign financing coming from in our elections. Less than a year ago, there was a narrative that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) was about to go bankrupt. Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton decried the DNC as a "bankrupt" organization and warned that Democrats are going to be "outgunned, outspent, and out-lied" in the upcoming election." What a difference a year makes. Suddenly the headlines read: Politico - "Biden Posts stunning monthly cash haul:$365 million." CBS - "Joe Biden shatters record with $ 364.5 million hauls in August." NYT - "Biden expected to surpass $ 300 million raised in August." ABC - "Joe Biden and DNC

Aborted and Murdered Black Lives Matter, Too

BLM Abortion

In the past five years, ever since the Washington Post began recording every fatal police encounter (to date, they have not established any digital repository for the deaths of police officers), there has been increasingly more data to debunk the BLM narrative of police brutality and white systemic racism. Both Heather McDonald and a tidy infographic from Statista (whose data is cited below) corroborate that approximately 1,000 individuals are shot and killed by police each year. 2017: 987 2018: 996 2019: 1,004 2020: 661 Admittedly, there are deaths that occur outside the realm of a fatal shooting, such as the incident in Rochester, NY with the drug overdose (reported as a spit bag choking) and the incident in Minneapolis, MN with the fentanyl overdose (reported

BLM Should Live Its Redistributive Values

BLM Redistributive Values

According to a June 10th article in Black Enterprise, corporations had pledged over $1.5 billion to Black Lives Matter in the wake of the George Kirby arrest resistance fiasco, ostensibly for the purpose of signaling their virtue. Amazingly, this figure nevertheless represented the "paucity of corporations and the stinginess of donations." It’s never enough for some people. With an array of structures designed to obfuscate the total sum of donations to Black Lives Matter, exact dollar amounts are hard to come by. Given that it raised over $100 million in 2016 alone, and in addition to the enormous pledge in just a few weeks this summer, it would be fair to estimate that $2-3 billion easily entered the coffers. Since it is a

The French Revolution, Like the BLM Revolution, Was as Accidental as the Rose Bowl Parade

French Revolution

All principled people want everyone to have an equal opportunity for a good life, a safe life, and a productive life, whatever his or her race, religion, or region. That reasonable, humane, and kind attitude is the reason for a quick acceptance of the proclamation, "black lives matter." That was the right attitude, even a Christian perspective to have. All good and decent people would agree. Of course, we all thought black lives mattered, and most of us added, but then all lives matter. What we didn't know when we first heard those words is that not all those people were concerned about black lives; they wanted to produce rage, resistance, revolution, and reparations. Those realities are obvious as I write this

Joe Biden in Denial, Fanning the Flames and Refuses to Disavow Left-Wing Violence

Joe Biden Pennsylvania

Sometimes you have to pinch yourself to see what reality is. Or perhaps it's all in the Matrix. Joe Biden made a big splash in the media recently to announce that he would disavow the ongoing riots and violence occurring across the nation. Would Joe Biden come out of his basement and actually disavow the radical Left and all the national violence they have brought to America? Unfortunately, we have been disappointed. Pittsburgh (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden accused President Donald Trump in a recent speech from battleground state Pennsylvania of sowing chaos amid nationwide protests, pushing back on Republican assertions that Trump stands for "law and order." "This president long ago forfeited any moral leadership in this country,"

The Elephant in the Room at the DNC Convention, that Should Make Us All Angry

Elphant at DNC Convention

The Democrats have just wrapped up their four-day convention, and there was an abundance of sterile screenshots of the wealthy elite celebrities jawing about income equality and the standard victim identity chorus line of virtue signaling whiners. Bill Maher called the DNC Convention, "Was like watching a telethon at 2 in the morning." Then there were the sanctimonious politicians pontificating about Orange Man Bad, and if re-elected, he will end our democracy as we know it. The elephant in the room remained deafening silent. There was not one word of recognition or condemnation for the destabilizing civil - unrest in America streets, revolting hate crimes and explosive violence playing out live on television and cell phone screens across mostly Democrat-run cities over the

These Four Things Can’t All Be True, Who is Lying?

Who Is Lying

We are now less than 3-months from the U.S. presidential elections, and we thought we would take a macro view of the political and financial landscape to better understand the state of play. The choice before the American people is a stark and a pivotal one that gives two very different visions for the world. We present four specific points that we are being told are real today and can be relatively accurately measured - at least as the mainstream media organizations are telling us. Many are staking not only their financial futures on this vision but also the very direction of the country from a historical viewpoint. We ask the question - can all these points be true? Or are
