COVID-19 – A School Choice Diamond in the Rough
- By Michael J. LaPierre
True Patriots understand that Covid-19 was used as a propaganda instrument by the Marxist element on our shores. While the loss of life for those who contracted the China-Flu is heartbreaking, and those who were stripped of their civil liberties by the stroke of the Executive Order pens seem unimaginable, undemocratic, unconstitutional, and palpably disturbing, there may be light at the end of the Covid-10 indoctrination. One word: EDUCATION.

The Kids Aren't All Right
- By Salena Zito
PITTSBURGH -- One year ago, Lena Carson was pulling straight A's at the city's Creative and Performing Arts Magnet school, located across the river from her parents' home. She also swam at the local YMCA every day in preparation for the annual state competition and enjoyed the everyday social life of a teenager.
Today, she is sitting at home. Again.

If Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Is the Standard, What About Democrat 'Kingmaker' Rev. Al Sharpton?
- By Larry Elder
Because of offensive tweets posted by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., before she won office, House Democrats joined by 11 Republicans voted to strip her of her committee assignments.
If this is the new standard, can we apply this to the Rev. Al Sharpton, aka a Democratic "kingmaker," whose support was solicited by every major 2020 Democratic presidential candidate?

Opt out of Social Security for Racial Equity
- By Star Parker
A recent Reuters headline read, "Yellen, Rice tout economics as key to fixing American inequality."
According to Susan Rice, President Joe Biden's new domestic policy adviser, "The evidence is clear, investing in equity is good for economic growth."

Democrats Want a 'Return to Civility'; When Did They Practice It? Part 2
- By Larry Elder
Last week, we covered the challenge President Joe Biden faces in his supposed quest to return to an era of "civility." Democrats never practiced civility. We listed only some of the race- and Nazi-based insults used for decades by Democrats against the very Republicans with whom they now seek "healing." Here are just a few more examples:
Left-wing actor/singer and activist Harry Belafonte, who marched with close friend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., called President George W. Bush a racist. When asked whether the number and prominence of Blacks in the Bush administration perhaps suggested a lack of racism, Belafonte explained, "Hitler had a lot of Jews high up in the hierarchy of the Third Reich."

A New GOP Future -- Beyond President Trump
- By Star Parker
The Congressional Budget Office now projects that economic recovery in 2021 will be faster than it predicted last July. It projects that the economy will be back to its pre-pandemic levels by mid-2021. This very good news reflects the fact that the economic turndown was not as severe as the CBO had expected, and that the recovery was stronger than expected.
Former President Donald Trump, recently rejected for reelection by American voters, can take full credit for this.

Will the Democrats Move to the Center?
- By Joseph M. Bianchi
Now that Democrats are on the doorstep of power, will the extreme left of the party move forward with its agenda, or will there be push back from more moderate corners?
Over the past few months, we have seen the rise of social movements with a distinctively left agenda. What has empowered many of these movements is the support, whether overt or tacit, from the Democratic party. Biden’s victory seems to have shown that a great many people in our country are ready for, or are open to, just such agendas.
