Early on Friday Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) took to Twitter to declare his support for the 10th Amendment… When it comes to marijuana.
I have long believed that states should function as their own laboratories of democracy. My bill is a step in the right direction aimed at removing the barriers to state legalization efforts.
— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) April 20, 2018
The Tweet coming today probably isn’t much of a surprise. April 20th is known as “National Weed Day” in popular culture. This seems to be Chuck Schumer’s way of “looking hip” to younger constituents.
But, regardless of opinions on marijuana, for conservatives who believe in the constitution this Tweet may look surprising reasonable. But I wonder if Schumer would have the same opinion when it comes to gun rights, or abortion, or school choice? Definitely not.
This may be the only time that Schumer has used the Tenth Amendment as an argument for an issue. But the fact of the matter is, he doesn’t have an actual record of supporting state’s rights. If you were to attempt to reason with him about expanding gun rights or restricting abortion at the state level, it is a virtual guarantee that he would not agree with a Tenth Amendment argument.
And using states rights wasn’t even his main argument, as seen in a video he posted.
The time has come to decriminalize marijuana. My thinking – as well as the general population’s views – on the issue has evolved, and so I believe there’s no better time than the present to get this done. pic.twitter.com/EIHgsI8j6C

But maybe i’m wrong, and maybe Schumer has taken a strong embrace of the Tenth Amendment. If so, please get out of our way when it comes to passing pro-life, pro-gun, and pro-school choice legislation…
Biden White House Will ‘Start Acting Now’ on Slavery Reparations Without Congressional Approval
Enshrining the new leftist caste system.
The Biden White House has announced that they will “start acting now” on reparations for slavery regardless of what goes on in Congress.
“We don’t want to wait on a study. We’re going to start acting now,” Senior White House adviser Cedric Richmond said during a recent interview with Axios.
“We have to start breaking down systemic racism and barriers that have held people of color back and especially African-Americans,” he added.
Richmond believes that House Resolution 40, a measure introduced in the legislature to study reparations, will eventually pass, but he maintains that the administration will move on the issue regardless of what the facts or logic of the matter dictate.
“We have to do stuff now to improve the plight, status, future, and empowerment of Black people all around the country,” Richmond said.
Richmond is building on the case made by White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who has affirmed the Biden administration’s support of the reparations study.
“He certainly would support a study of reparations,” Psaki said. “He understands we don’t need a study to take action right now on systemic racism, so he wants to take actions within his own government in the meantime.”
Biden is already taking measures to give additional handouts to certain minority constituents. He took executive action shortly after being installed as president that compelled the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) “to redress racially discriminatory federal housing policies that have contributed to wealth inequality.”
Richmond confirmed that the Biden administration will be conferring additional government-granted privileges to minorities, particularly when it comes to educational opportunity.
“If you start talking about free college tuition to HBCUs [Historically Black Colleges and Universities] and you start talking about free community college in Title I and all of those things, I think that you are well on your way. Those are doable,” he said.
Big League Politics has reported on Biden’s embrace of Black Lives Matter radicalism as part of his devil’s bargain to seize power:
The terrorist group Black Lives Matter (BLM) uses the same digital fundraising platform, ActBlue, that is used by former vice president Joe Biden and many prominent political figures in the Democrat Party, the National Pulse has discovered.
“We appreciate your support of the movement and our ongoing fight to end state-sanctioned violence, liberate Black people, and end white supremacy forever,” the donation tab on the BLM official website states, which is rerouted to ActBlue.
The donation page notes that “ActBlue Charities is a registered charitable organization formed to democratize charitable giving” and any “contribution is made from my own funds or the funds of an authorizing corporation or other entity, and the funds are not being provided by any other person or entity.”
Biden’s presidential campaign has received a stunning $119,253,857 from the ActBlue platform, which sustains his presidential ambitions as well as the BLM terror movement.
Biden is living up to his mandate to enact an aggressive and corrosive form of identity politics. As the demographic collapse of the historical American nation continues, a new anti-white caste system of sorts will continue to take shape.
