Today, the nostrum goes, it is not enough for Americans to be not racist. They must be “anti-racist.” This woke terminology has infused our lexicon. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., recently declared from the well of the Senate: “Being race-conscious is not enough. It never was. We must be an…

As we watch the news each night, the advertising switches between how good the president is and how bad. The president has finally understood that Joe Biden is a formidable foe and is trying to find any dirt he can on the man. The Democrats don’t have to work so hard. Each day that the pande…
