On September 30, 2020, California Governor signed a bill that would create a government task force to study and build plans to dole out reparations for descendants of slaves.
The Washington Free Beacon provided some context to the passage of this bill:
Assembly Bill 3121 makes California the first state to form a task force charged with researching the effects of slavery and creating a plan for reparations. The law—which comes after a summer of racial unrest following the death of George Floyd in May—also requires the group to educate the public on California’s historical involvement with slavery and segregation.
For reparations to go out, subsequent legislation will be needed. This could manifest itself through cash payments or larger spending programs directed to black communities. The bill highlights how any state-funded reparation spending packages should not replace a federal reparations program.
California State Assemblywoman Shirley Nash Weber introduced the bill a few months ago.
Due to the racial unrest following the death of George Floyd, talk about reparations for blacks has become a mainstream talking point among academics and even some local officials. By law, regents at the University of California must carry out research on slavery and its residual effects. Asheville, North Carolina was one city that led the way back in July by approving legislation that increased funding for programs that incentivized black homeownership, which is considered a form of reparations.
Reparations has a dubious foundation given how the U.S. government has passed plenty of Great Society programs that are supposed to help blacks. Moreover, handouts to blacks would not address the core problems they face — single-parent households and epidemic levels of crime – which are largely the product of the modern-day welfare state.
Many boosters of reparations would do well to read up on the history of Black America before the welfare state, to see how this community thrived during a time when government was much smaller and allowed for Americans of all colors and creeds to thrive.
A sleeker government, not another wealth transfer program such as a reparations, is the key to mitigating tensions in America.
Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE
She’s citing Biden family corruption.
Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.
Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) January 14, 2021
Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.
Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.
Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.
Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.
The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
