There is a fashionable standoffishness characteristic of much elite thinking about blacks’ relationship to America—as exemplified, for instance, by the New York Times’s 1619 Project. Does this posture serve the interests, rightly understood, of black Americans? I think that it does not.
Democratic leaders no longer even try to hide their real objectives. All of the bills introduced by Democratic lawmakers of late have been undisguised power grabs.
One clear message coming out of a Thursday news conference with congressional Democrats is that their court-packing plan is really about the future of how elections are conducted in the United States.
ACRU's Ken Blackwell is a shareholder of the Cincinnati Reds, and has a wonderful family association with the history of black baseball. In this interview on Chicago's The Answer radio program, he gives his view on the MLB moving the All Star game away from the workers of Atlanta based on the lie that the Georgia voting law is racist. Vote safety laws protect ALL voters of every race.
Listen as ACRU's Ken Blackwell fearlessly defends liberty and the "risk" people must be willing to take to stay free in his interview with Rev. CL. Bryant. Amb. Blackwell notes ACRU is "in the middle of the fight to save our Constitutional Republic" by educating people about the dangers of the For The People Act, which will move us toward oppressive one-party, centralize rule -- and away from freedom.
ACRU'S Amb. Ken Blackwell is the face of today's battle for liberty and the very essence of our rights -- which are being chipped away by the left and their political allies. As Amb. Blackwell notes in this brilliant piece, "Democrats’ Corrupt Politicians Act (aka "For the People Act") pending in the Senate is a frontal assault on our Constitution’s federalist recipe for freedom, putting Congress in complete control of its own elections."
Free speech is not just a Constitutional protection that protects us from government tyranny, but it is a guiding principle of our society and a cornerstone of our liberty. One group of Americans with one ideological belief system should not use their power to suppress the speech of others. A number of conservative constitutionalists have come together to hold US corporations accountable when they become weaponized corporate tools of the left.
Kudos to North Dakota legislators for pushing a bill that that will restrict state bureaucrats from blocking worship and religious practices during a state of emergency while ensuring that participation in faith activities is not treated with punitive bias. In theory, Constitutional rights should not need “extra” state protections, but we have learned that they do. Other states should follow suit.
Perhaps the only politician in Michigan less concerned with individual rights and economic freedom than Gov. Whitmer is her despotic AG, Dana Nessell. Ms. Marlena Pavlos-Hackney (who fled communist rule only to find it again in Michigan) appeared on Fox and complained of the Governor’s treatment of small businesses, and then was arrested with the AG noting that her TV appearance was a problem. You can read Ms. Nessell’s statement in this article; a paraphrase just can’t cover the vitriol and inappropriateness of her position.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has taken a national lead in opposing a federal takeover of your private life and personal decisions through a “vaccine passport.” The Governor issued an Executive Order banning this encroachment on more rights than we can count. We hope other governors follow his lead in defending the Constitution and their constituents and that the Florida legislature turns the language in this executive order into some strong legislation.
