    Democratic Senator Openly Admits Plan to Racially Discriminate

    Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) is being called out for her Tuesday comments about the White House nominees being sent by President Job Biden. The senator said that she believed the nominees were racist and bigoted, according to The Daily Wire.
    “I am a no vote on the floor, on all non-diversity nominees,” Duckworth said. “You know, I will vote for racial minorities and I will vote for LGBTQ. But anybody else I’m not voting for.”
    “To be told that, ‘Well, you have Kamala Harris, we’re very proud of her, you don’t need anybody else’ is insulting… last night, that was the trigger for me,” Duckworth said. “But multiple times I’ve heard that. And that’s not something you would say to the black caucus, ‘Well, you have Kamala, we’re not going to put any more African-Americans in the cabinet because you have Kamala.’”
    The senator was immediately called out by multiple publications for her racist comments, including The New York Post who reported that “Duckworth said she made her decision after White House deputy chief of staff Jennifer O’Malley Dillon made an ‘incredibly insulting’ remark Monday evening after Biden spoke on a webcast with Senate Democrats.”
    “Dillon, Biden’s 2020 campaign manager, allegedly suggested to Duckworth that Asian-Americans should be content with Vice President Kamala Harris’ role. Harris is biracial; her mother was born in India and her father is black and from Jamaica.”
    Duckworth’s comments made more than a little stir among activists and her fellow lawmakers and alike.
    Patrice Lee Onwuka, director of Independent Women’s Forum, responded to Duckworth’s remarks by writing: “This is disgusting. I am a black woman and I don’t believe that senators should approve or deny cabinet nominees based on their skin color. That is not progress but racism.”
    Seattle-based right-leaning political commentator Jason Rantz wrote:
    “When you’re a Democrat, you’re encouraged to tokenize people and shout your racism and bigotry.”
    “Duckworth is a vile disgusting bigot, a disgrace to the country, and a blathering moron on top of it. But at least she’s honest about it,” Daily Wire podcast host Matt Walsh wrote. “She should be removed from the senate for her professed racism. Also because she’s an incompetent goon.”
    And Ben Shapiro, Daily Wire Editor Editor in Chief and radio host, responded to Duckworth’s remarks by tweeting: “This is called racism.”
    Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) also weighed in according to the Daily Wire, saying “Remember when ‘I won’t support someone because of their skin color’ used to be racist?”
    Sen. Tom Cotton called out Duckworth’s remarks by saying: “It’s disappointing but not surprising that the Democrats’ obsession with identity politics has come to this: U.S. Senators openly acknowledge voting for or against nominees based solely on their race.”
    “Imagine the scandal—and rightly so!—if a Republican senator announced he would only vote for nominees of certain races,” Cotton said. “We’ve gone pretty far down the road from judging people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.”
    Former CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright, who only recently departed the Democratic Party in February, commented on Duckworth’s remarks: “Sen. Duckworth is a whisker away from demanding the whites drink at a separate fountain.”
    The irony of segregation, discrimination, and other forms of racism isn’t lost on anyone who is paying attention. While some make the argument that this is what White people have coming to them, it is in essence the theory that two wrongs can make a right.
    In other words, people of color are saying that they need to push White people down, because of historical wrongs that were done to people of color. And if that doesn’t hold water, they make the argument that they’re still being treated unfairly.
    The definition of fair seems to consistently move, and the punishment for unfair is constantly increasing. However, as long as there is no foundation, no moral base for truth, we will constantly be drug around by our noses by whoever cries out the loudest. And when was the last time you were in a room where the loudest person was the smartest?

    Phil, I do need to disagree with you on that issue. I have driven past wind farms for years. Unlike the cartoon presentations that some PETA, and I don't mean People Eating Tasty Animals, activists put out s few years age, the blades are not a blurred circle when turning. They turn at about 20rpm, that's right per minute. YOU CAN SEE THE INDIVIDUAL BLADES FROM OVER A MILE AWAY!!! Any bird that cannot see the blades in time to avoid them is going to die anyway because it is too blind to find food.

    Re: The Shining City Upon a Hill

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg rallied support for the Biden administration’s massive infrastructure plan in an interview on Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” arguing the bill represents “a generational investment” that can position the country for the future.

    “Infrastructure is the foundation that makes it possible for Americans to thrive. And what we know is that foundation has been crumbling.” Buttigieg said.


    “We’re still coasting on infrastructure choices that were made in the 1950," he said. "Now’s our chance to make infrastructure choices for the future that are going to serve us well in the 2030s and onto the middle of the century when we will be judged for whether we meet this moment here in the 2020s.”

    President Joe Biden unveiled his $2 trillion infrastructure plan last week, a sweeping plan that includes $155 billion earmarked toward repairing roads and bridges; $80 million dedicated to Amtrak repairs; $40 billion for public housing improvements; $111 billion for repairing lead pipes; $42 billion for ports and airports; $100 billion for public school improvements; and $180 billion for research and development.

    More Good News
    YOU don't have early voting?

    Mississippians could have the final say on whether they should have the same early voting opportunities as voters do in 44 other states and the District of Columbia.

    An initiative was filed Thursday with Secretary of State Michael Watson’s office to place on the election ballot a proposal to allow a minimum of 10 days of early voting, including two Saturdays, before each election. Supporters of the initiative will have to garner the signatures of roughly 100,000 registered Mississippi voters — 12% of the total from the last governor’s election — during a year’s time to place the proposal on the ballot. One-fourth of the required number of signatures must come from each of the four U.S. House districts.

    Re: The Shining City Upon a Hill

    American Airlines on Thursday criticized the restrictive voting rights bill that passed in the Texas state Senate, saying the legislation would "limit voting access."

    "Earlier this morning, the Texas state Senate passed legislation with provisions that limit voting access. To make American's stance clear: We are strongly opposed to this bill and others like it," the airline, which is based in Fort Worth, Texas, wrote in a statement on Thursday.

    "Any legislation dealing with how elections are conducted must ensure ballot integrity and security while making it easier to vote, not harder. At American, we believe we should break down barriers to diversity, equity and inclusion in our society - not create them," the statement added.

    Southwest Airlines, which is also based in Texas, would not express if it was against the legislation, but did say, according to Reuters, "We believe every voter should have a fair opportunity to let their voice be heard. This right is essential to our nation's success."

    I like that Georgia and Texas are moving towards the same voting laws that are in place in Canada. Everyone should have to show an ID or have a person vouch for them that has an ID. Nothing wrong with that.
