Court Shoots Down Biden’s Race Reparations for Black Farmers as Unconstitutional

A federal court handed Joe Biden another defeat on his plan for black reparations by shooting down his debt forgiveness for black farmers.

A federal court handed Joe Biden another defeat on his backdoor plan for black reparations by shooting down his debt forgiveness for black farmers.

Chief Judge S. Thomas Anderson of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee ruled Biden’s policy of reparations only for non-white farmers is unconstitutional and he issued a preliminary injunction blocking the program.

The judge’s ruling prevents the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) from “erasing the debts of those farmers falling within the specified racial classifications … providing a payment in an amount up to 120 percent of the outstanding indebtedness, without any consideration of need.”

The court targeted section 1005 of the coronavirus relief bill which aimed to “provide debt relief to ‘socially disadvantaged’ farmers holding certain USDA loans in an attempt to remedy “the lingering effects of the unfortunate but well-documented history of racial discrimination” in USDA loan programs.

“At the outset, the Court notes that four cases in particular have informed its decision, including Vitolo (enjoining the restaurant relief portion of the ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act), which is binding precedent for this Court,” the judge wrote.

The ruling continued:

The parties also agree that, because Section 1005 on its face makes a distinction among applicants for relief on the basis of race, it must satisfy strict scrutiny – that is, it must be narrowly tailored to serve a compelling state interest and reiterating that all racial classifications [imposed by government] … must be analyzed by a reviewing court under strict scrutiny.) Under strict scrutiny, the government has the burden of proving that racial classifications are narrowly tailored measures that further compelling governmental interests. When race-based action is necessary to further a compelling governmental interest, such action does not violate the constitutional guarantee of equal protection so long as the narrow-tailoring requirement is also satisfied. Thus, the government must adopt the least restrictive means of achieving a compelling state interest rather than a means substantially related to a sufficiently important interest.

The courts had already ruled that “[g]overnment policies that classify people by race are presumptively invalid.”

The court added that section 1005 was not written to show that black farmers had been uniquely wronged by the government.

The case against Biden’s illegal program was filed by several white farmers who said it was unfair that only black farmers were getting coronavirus relief.

Gunman Bricked to Death After Opening Fire on Forth Worth Party

You don’t mess with Texas.

You know what they say:  Don’t mess with Texas. This is the sort of placed where the locals have no problem reminding you, and swiftly, that you’re not from around here.  They are fiercely independent Americans, and they enjoy their freedom in their own unique way. Texans always seem to get their way, and they certainly have been known to find a unique solution to their problems. This is as true as ever this week. A gunman who opened fire at a party early Monday in Texas, fatally shooting one person, died after attendees struck him with bricks, authorities said. The incident began around 1 a.m. in the backyard of a Fort Worth home when an attendee became angry and left, the police department said in a statement. The person, identified by a Fort Worth police spokesperson only as a man, returned with a second person and got into an argument with other partygoers. The man opened fire, striking one person and causing a non-life-threatening injury, the statement said. But then… When people at the party began chasing him, he opened fire and they threw landscaping bricks at him, the statement said. Two people were struck by gunfire, one of them fatally, police said. The second person was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The gunman was pronounced dead at the scene, and has yet to be publicly identified.

Swastika Found Engraved at State Department Draws Condemnation

The Secretary of State was LIVID.

There’s nothing funny about the Nazi regime, and everyone knows it, except for a certain breed of adolescent dolt who’s simply looking to appear edgy and dangerous as some hormonal ploy to attract a mate. These are the kids that would draw toothbrush mustaches on the faces in the magazines, or throw up a sig heil behind the teacher’s back for a laugh. But this phase almost always fades as the years climb on, and most of these young idiots looks back at themselves in a perpetual state of cringe. This leaves us to assume that anyone continuing to exude such Hitleresque nonsense into adulthood is doing so very purposefully, and not with the naïveté of their younger years. At the State Department, this reality is causing a bit of concern. A swastika carved into an elevator car has been discovered at the State Department in Washington—in a location within the building’s security perimeter. The elevator is close to the office of the special envoy charged with monitoring and opposing anti-semitism, Axios reports. Secretary of State Antony Blinken emailed all employees Tuesday about the discovery. Blinken was livid. “The hateful graffiti has been removed and this incident will be investigated,” he wrote. Blinken is the stepson of a Holocaust survivor, per the Washington Post, and has emphasized the threat of anti-semitism, which he wrote “isn’t a relic of the past.” Officials have said President Biden will nominate an ambassador-at-large to deal with the problem; the Jerusalem Post called for such a position in an editorial this month. Hate has been on the rise in America in recent years, as white supremacist groups continue to recruit and spread their message online, and then, often violently, in real life.
