Medved: Built on Equal Protection, Not Discrimination


Laws matter. Yes, Americans may sometimes exceed posted speed limits, but that doesn’t mean we’re “systemically” a nation of reckless drivers.

By the same token, the fact that racism and discrimination remain a stubborn factor in American life, doesn’t mean that such hateful behavior represents the norm—or qualifies as systemic. Discrimination in employment, housing, education and criminal justice has been unequivocally illegal for more than a half century.

The people, working through our elected representatives, consistently choose to prohibit and punish racism, not to permit or promote it. The American system of justice isn’t built around oppression and bigotry. It promises “equal protection of the laws”—guaranteed by the 14th Amendment as a Constitutional right, regardless of race.

Bowyer: Do the Riots Make Any Sense?


Do the riots make any sense? While there is a clearly an understandable rationale behind peaceful protests over the death of George Floyd, what purpose can there be in looting, destroying businesses and engaging in more acts of violence against innocent people?

How is justice served by piling injustice on top of injustice?

There’s no logic to this except for that of mysterium iniquitatis—Latin for the ‘the mystery of evil’. The sacking and burning of businesses, the breakdown of order, the embrace of chaos is not rational. It’s not just destructive—it’s self-destructive.

Much of what is happening has nothing to do with race or economics or politics or ideology.

Some things are too big for us to handle on our own. It’s time for Americans to pray about the crises that have engulfed us.

Albert Mohler: The Overwhelming Lack of Diversity in Today’s Elite Universities


Late last year the campus newspaper at Yale—the Yale Daily News—published an article highlighting the astounding lack of worldview diversity on America’s college campuses today.

Under the headline, “Faculty Call For Ideological Diversity” the reporters highlighted four professors who made it clear, Yale stifles political discourse. In other respects, Yale has made a push for demographic diversity—race, gender, sexual orientation and the like. But, when it comes to political diversity, there is virtually none.

The numbers for universities in the Northeast are particularly startling: The ratio of liberal professors to conservatives is 28:1, according to the story.

Perhaps the strangest element in all of this is that conservative and Christian parents continue to fight so hard to get their children into schools where the faculty is determined to undermine everything those parents believed and have even taught their children.

“Hewitt: The Pivot to Racism Fools No One”


After the testimony of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller effectively imploded its key takeaway that there was no collusion between the president, his campaign or family and Russia during Russia’s 2016 attack on the election, then the mainstream media faced a quandary. What to do next?—to both vent Trump hatred and boost ratings.

In the aftermath of the terrible carnage in El Paso and Dayton, Democrats and their supporters in media hit on a solution: pivot from Trump and Russia and instead talk endlessly about Trump and racism.

Indeed, some of the kookier Democratic candidates for president took to calling the president a white supremacist.

This pivot fools no one and enrages many, for in fact it has the consequence of branding not just the president but all of his supporters as racists and white supremacists.

There’s not a hint of truth to that accusation. Playing the race card will be bad for ratings and there’s no doubt the effort from Democrats is bad for the nation.

Albert Mohler: The Stage is Set for Another Drama at the High Court

The Supreme Court has announced that it will take up cases that will determine whether or not sexual orientation and gender identity are included as protected classes under the federal government’s Civil Rights Act of 1964.

During the Obama Administration, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission cited the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which prevented discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin — and they said that gender identity and sexual orientation should be considered included under “sex.”

But there is no one who can plausibly argue that Congress and the then President Lyndon Johnson had sexual orientation and gender identity in mind in 1964.

They didn’t.

They wouldn’t have even understood what we are talking about.

It’s an effort from the moral revolutionaries to try to further their aims by going around Congress—seeking action by executive order and then support from the Courts.

An ultimate decision in this case, is not likely to come until June of 2020, and that sets the stage for an incredible drama now to follow.
