Why We Must Be Bold
on Welfare Reform

Daily Signal, by Kay Coles James

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 3/12/2018 1:34:39 PM

Washington is in a unique position to solve America’s welfare crisis for a very simple reason: Washington created it. The policy and programs it established a half-century ago have depleted people, obstructed their purpose, and extinguished their extraordinary possibilities. The evidence of this failure is all around us. Being black and the daughter of a former welfare recipient, I know firsthand the unintended harm welfare has caused. That’s why much of what I am about to share relates to the African-American experience. But this isn’t a problem specific to us. When it comes to welfare, the black community is merely America’s “canary

Comments:
This is a very moving piece about the former strength of black families and institution and what happened when government made so many dependent on it, followed by sensible prescriptions for the way back to sanity.

Kay Coles James is exactly what Black Americans need, wise and responsible new leadership.

Wonderful article thank you very much, but I’d like to address a significant point:

FTA:

“The misguided compassion of this liberal policy...”

Kind hearted of the courageous Ms. Coles to view it that way but this was deliberately sinister. The same party that enslaved blacks conspired to keep them dependent and brainwashed to believe that party was their salvation.

Indeed the solution is work based in parallel with eliminating the incentives to do the wrong thing.

She is close to understanding, but her racism is blinding her.
Welfare is color blind, as are it´s policies.
There are more white people on welfare than black people, so why hasn´t white culture suffered the same fate? (I recognize the existence of white trash, but they are not mainstream white culture).

The real problem is a black culture rooted in a slave past. Many, if not most, white people are descendants of slaves, many with a family oral history of that slavery that persists today, but that does not make us feel any different from others who did not descend from slaves.
If anything, it makes us more likely to want independence and not want anything to do with what the government would call ´help´.
She needs to move on from the past and become an individual unshackled from it, for she has become a slave to the past.

Welfare as designed by the Democrats is just another form of slavery.

FTA: “Who could come up with such an idea? The kind, it seems, who apparently just couldn’t see that doing this would destroy two of the most effective defenses against poverty: work and marriage.”

I’m assuming the author is presenting the question for the reader to ponder and she is fully aware of who came up with the idea and why; the old-line racists Democrats. They saw the threat of growing vibrant black communities with their professional, middle and lower classes residing together. In places like California, with no history of Jim Crow, blacks were residing is any neighborhood that met their economic resources, although most chose living with their own. As did other ethnicities; Chinese, Japanese, Irish, etc.

Black veterans returning from WWII began demanding the end of Jim Crow and the real Civil Rights movement was born. The old-line racist Democrats devised welfare as a pseudo plantation that would make the “negro” dependent, suppress the work ethic and shatter the family. Thereby corralling those “negroes” into ghettoes and letting them kill each other off. The master trick was labeling this evil as “progressive liberal” policy and selling it as compassion. [spit]

Only because of President Trump do we have the opportunity for common sense reform to the welfare system. Once the legislative hurdle is jumped, and I believe it will be, the biggest resistance to reform will be from the various Socialist Services departments. The entire profession is composed of dedicated socialists from intake worker to the director. Trust me, I served time at my county’s SS and experienced how they methodically drive out anyone with a hint of conservative thinking. They see the people in their programs as their customers and judge their organizational success on how many are on their rolls.

I have to disagree with #3. I do not see the author´s "racism." I think the author is unshackled from her past but remembers it. Both the author and #3 note that there are more white people on welfare than blacks. Of course. There are and always have been more white people than blacks in this country. A more meaningful measure would be the relative percentages by race.

The talk of "good intensions" needs to stop. It gives credit where none is deserved. Why fear being offensive? Why not speak the truth. The misery inflicted was intentional.

LBJ spoke these infamous words as regards the so-called Great Society: "We will have these niggers voting for us for the next 200 years"!

The government makes it too lucrative to leave welfare and if that´s not bad enough, look at the tax refunds unwed mothers receive. Let them pay US back for prenatal care, hospital bills and assistance they receive before refunding money they didn´t pay into the system.

I take issue with saying slaves were uneducated. Reading a diary from back when Williamsburg was the capital of VA, they insisted the children attend church and get an education. It was much later during the depression when hardly anyone got a full education. Blacks and whites alike couldn´t read and write and certainly didn´t leave Bible records.

How Immigration Officials Cooked the

Daily Signal, by Mark Metcalf    Original Article

A recent Justice Department report on U.S. immigration courts provides a rare glimpse into the difficulties faced by the Trump administration as it repairs the damages inflicted on these tribunals over the last 20 years. But give credit to the courts’ new executive, James McHenry. Early on, he identified the need for transparency and has made accurate disclosure of court business one of his agency’s highest priorities. Candor, if not reform, demands no less. It’s a good start for an executive whose predecessors often avoided—and sometimes denied—the truth about the courts’ troubling dynamics. Yet the courts limped along, their annual reports

Our friend Howard Root attended the Trump rally in Duluth last night. This is his (fantastic) report along with photos he took at the event (at the top and bottom below): When I arrived at 4:00 p.m., the line for admission was at least a half mile long. People had been lining up since before 10:00 a.m., with the line snaking through a glass skyway where the afternoon sun had raised the temperature to over 100. I’ve seen shorter lines for Springsteen tickets, yet everyone was exceptionally polite. I only saw one protester on the walk over. He was standing on

At the same time, we wonder what the future holds for our case, our lost business, and our family. Ours may be, as Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote, the case that allows “further elaboration in the courts.” And we are encouraged to know that seven justices of the

No fewer than 60 organizations branded "hate groups" or otherwise attacked by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) are considering legal action against the left-wing smear factory, a Christian legal nonprofit leader confirmed to PJ Media on Tuesday. He suggested that the $3 million settlement and apology the SPLC gave to Maajid Nawaz and his Quilliam Foundation on Monday would encourage further legal action. (Snip) Liberty Counsel filed a lawsuit against the charity navigation organization GuideStar for defamation, after GuideStar adopted the SPLC´s "hate group" list. That lawsuit is ongoing.

Yesterday on Face the Nation, I responded to questions about the migrant separations from their children under the Trump Administration’s policy announced last month by trying to shift the focus to what drives these migrations in the first place – something that can’t be addressed by a simple band-aid piece of legislation paving the way for more lax border requirements. (Snip) Why do we have the biggest month to month increase between February and March that we’ve seen since 2011? “And the answer to that is the activity of the Mexican cartels, who use these migrants as essentially a distraction

“Are you an American or not?” It’s a simple question, one that every U.S. census should include, especially when the survey already contains nonsensical and intrusive inquiries into one’s ethnic DNA composition and whether one co-habits with someone of the opposite sex or one’s own. Whether you are a citizen or not is a valid question in a civic-minded constitutional democracy. Whether your parents are ethnic Chinese born in Peru or you are a nonpracticing heterosexual, not so much. And yet, the inclusion of a citizenship question and other changes rightly being made by the Trump administration to the 2020 census caused a

Politics has a way of turning everything upside down. Flit over to Twitter and the same government media echo chamber that was loudly defending the Iran deal is concern trolling about strong inspections of North Korea’s nuclear program and worrying that President Trump’s suspension of military exercises is far too great of a concession to the tiny tyrant. The clever ones ask, “What’s the difference between the Iran deal and the North Korean negotiations”? Isn’t Trump’s stated willingness to meet with dictators a lot like Obama’s no preconditions pledge? And then there are the trade wars. What is he thinking by upsetting the

When every last Trudeau eyebrow has been scraped off the floor of the Manoir Richelieu, it´s worth remembering that the divisions in the G7 are not quite as straightforward as the media would have us believe.

Over the last century, the world has witnessed the slow but steady depoliticization of America and Western Europe in favor of the rule of the apolitical “expert.” The great challenge of our era is to foster the return of actual political life between the people and their elected officials. President Trump’s summit with Kim Jong-un successfully served this purpose. One must jettison the abstractions of modern intellectuals in order to make politics possible again. Perhaps nowhere is this truer than on matters of foreign policy. As Claremont Institute Senior Fellow Angelo Codevilla has written (No Victory, No Peace), as our increasingly

Below I repost Uwe Parpart´s Asia Times analysis of the Trump-Kim summit in Singapore. Liberal media is aghast at the president´s rough handling of Canadian boy-band frontman Justin Trudeau, and his confrontational approach overall at the Group of Seven summit. When the dust settles, though, Trump may accomplish what eluded Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama: a stabler and safer world without the need for millions of American boots on the ground. He well may go down in history as one of our great foreign policy presidents.

The leadership of the Miss America beauty pageant announced this week it would eliminate the historic “bathing beauty” or swimsuit portion of the competition. The decision was explained as a reform to stop the young ladies who compete, from being judged on their appearance. Those statements were made as if they were obviously related; that there is no real difference between being judged on one’s appearance, and being judged on one’s nearly-naked appearance. It’s rather sad, that those notions would be so blithely conflated; sad, and in its own way, as revealing as a skimpy bikini. If you can’t find a middle ground between

Remember Anthony Weiner, also known as “Carlos Danger” — the former congressman who kept texting people pictures of well, umm, that part of his name? It all made quite the splash because he is married to Hillary Clinton’s consigliere and constant sidekick, Huma Abedin. Turns out that Anthony was such a perp — and so enthralled with his own — that he was sexting with a minor. That is a federal offense carrying up to 10 years in prison. So, he got raided by the New York Police Department and the New York office of the FBI. They seized his laptop computer.

Does someone from the Trump family, the Trump Cabinet, or even the Trump administration have to be assaulted or worse, killed, before we accept the fact that a growing number from the far-left have put a rhetorical bounty on their heads. If has-been actor Peter Fonda suggesting Barron Trump be "ripped from his mother´s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles" does not horrify you with the obscene brutality of its message, nothing ever will.

The cover is captioned, "Welcome to America."
