We keep hearing that “black lives matter,” but they seem to matter only when that helps politicians to get votes, or when that slogan helps demagogues demonize the police. The other 99 percent of black lives destroyed by people who are not police do not seem to attract nearly as much attention in the media.

Last January, the Obama administration quietly airlifted $400 million in foreign currency to Iran, which many felt was a cave-in, a ransom payment that America has sworn never to deliver.

The abandonment of traditional values has negatively affected the nation as a whole, but blacks have borne the greater burden.

We expect to hear a lot of lies during an election year, and this year is certainly no exception. What is surprising is how old some of these lies are, and how often they have been shown to be lies, years ago or even decades ago.

If jobs are created through government money creation and heavily protectionist laws and regulations, those jobs will not meet the needs of consumers, will add nothing to productivity, and ultimately will not last.
