Condoleezza Rice said yes, America's history is filled with acts and occasions and instances of racism, but it's a disservice to truth to therefore say all of America is racist, and all of America's governing documents are inherently racist. Madam President some day?
As mentioned in "Trump Derangement Syndrome: Was Hydroxychloroquine unfairly discredited?" (Web, June 2) Hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) was dismissed as an effective treatment because then-President Trump spoke of its promise. In fact, the FDA actually banned its use for COVID-19. Almost all studies (NEJM, Lancet, JAMA, etc.) were improperly done when giving the drug to hospitalized patients. These people were already in cytokine storm, and the most important adjuvant therapy, zinc, was not added to their treatment.
Unfortunately most Republicans today continue to be too dependent on former President Donald Trump, a person not worthy of emulating. For that reason, I have formed and trademarked a new organization: the Independent Republican Party. Any registered Republican is welcome to join. There are no dues. The only commitment required is standing up for traditional Republican principles and remaining independent of the influence of Donald Trump.
President Biden's recent speech in Tulsa, Oklahoma, could have been healing to our growing racial divide had it highlighted the advancement of Black Americans in the past 100 years. Instead, it was divisive, encouraging the actions of the president's Black Lives Matter supporters and anti-Semitic Congress members. (Mr. Biden's endorsement of critical race theory is another effort to keep the country split along racial lines.)

Two weeks ago, in response to the mounting evidence of the plausibility of the theory that SARS-CoV-2 may have leaked from a Chinese lab, President Biden ordered an investigation into the origins of COVID-19 by the U.S. intelligence agencies.
Mr. Biden's budget proposal does not contain the Hyde Amendment -- an annual appropriations rider that limits the ability of the federal government to use tax dollars to fund abortions through Medicaid.
President Biden, on the heels of the revealing emails that cast Anthony Fauci as deceptive on the coronavirus, said he is still "very confident" in the good doctor. Why? On what does he base that confidence? As for the rest of America, we want answers.
President Biden recently tasked the U.S. Intelligence Community to "redouble" its efforts to identify the origin of the COVID-19 virus. The community already has been focused on this for eighteen months. Its conclusions so far: It is either manmade and escaped from a lab or it developed naturally and jumped from an animal species to humans. One can only wonder how many hours of research and analysis led to narrowing it down to these two options. Yes, you can sense a bit of sarcasm.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter slammed the former president, Donald Trump, for failing to provide money to her Hurricane Maria-victimized and ailing grandmother, whom she now says is being forced to live in subpar housing. Thine, not mine: It's the socialist way.
