When I began my work 25 years ago, my vision for fixing our poor, broken communities was driven by my belief in America and what made it successful.

It's what I call the 3 C's: the principles of Christianity, the virtues of capitalism and the rule of law outlined in our Constitution.

After the civil rights movement, big government was deemed necessary to turn poor communities around.

The South Carolina State Convention is going to be aDonnybrook! While I do NOT expect, and do NOT condone intimidation, violence,and subversively disturbing the peaceful and orderly flow of discussion anddebate, I can assure you that PATRIOT voices WILL be heard in Columbia at ourState Convention. PATRIOTS are on the move and our voices will NOT be silenced.

If Drew McKissick thinks for one minute that hecan "weaponize" Robert's Rules of Order to control the RepublicanParty State Convention narrative, drown out the voices of conservative PATRIOTS,and tamp down the overwhelming DEVOTION that we have to the principles found inthe Republican Party Platform, he is grossly mistaken and the State Chair of fantasyland.

It is indeed rare, if not unprecedented, to see a highly diverse group of organizations such as the conservative Alliance Defending Freedom, the liberal American Civil Liberties Union, the libertarian Cato Institute and the Reason Foundation on the same page as the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund on the same issue.

But it is happening as the U.S. Senate takes up police reform. The issue is a legal doctrine known as qualified immunity.

These diverse organizations all agree that qualified immunity is bad law and should end.

Racism – A socially engineered concept based upon the false premise that there are separate races of human beings. One is a racist when one believes himself to be part of a distinctly separate race of the human species. This concept of racial separatism has no basis in scientific evidence.

"We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters], or perish together as fools." Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Tuesday, a panel of jurors found ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all three charges in connection with the murder of George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, who died on May 25, 2020 after Chauvin held his knee against his neck or upper body for nine minutes and 29 seconds, as a handcuffed Floyd repeatedly said: "I can't breathe."

The president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Alexis McGill Johnson, has used The New York Times as a confessional to fess up to the racist history of Planned Parenthood's founder, Margaret Sanger.

"We must reckon with Margaret Sanger's association with white supremacist groups and eugenics," she writes.

Sanger's involvement with the notoriously racist eugenics movement in the 1920s, and her population-control motivations to limit the procreation of "undesirables," is something pro-lifers, particularly black pro-lifers, have been writing about for years.

While the situation at America’s southern border is debated as to whether it is truly a crisis or not; and while congress debates the extent of the administration’s infrastructure bill, there is a much more ominous situation developing on the world scene that could impact, indeed, the entire world.

Both Russia and China are flexing their perspective military muscles in different parts of the globe, and the foreign policy implications for the Biden administration are, to say the least, critical.

While President Joe Biden's administration doesn't seem to need an excuse to spend money, two recurring arguments for his gigantic $2.3 trillion infrastructure proposal are that our roads and bridges are "crumbling" and that modernization would generate economic growth and jobs -- hence its name, the American Jobs Plan. But none of this clever marketing makes any of these claims true.
