[CNN] Most commentators portray Harris' exchange with Biden during the second night of the Democratic debate as a potential game-changer for the Democratic presidential nomination. But Harris dropped a bomb on Biden that's bigger than politics. She exposed a psychological shift in some parts of the black community that's been building for years.
The old days of black people putting up with questionable leaders because they felt like they had no other choice may be over. No more talk about trying to understand white people's racism, forgetting the impact of slavery, moving on from the past because "this is a time of healing."
Forgiveness may not always be divine; sometimes it leads to something worse.
"Look at what forgiveness has gotten us. It gave us Trump," said Wes Jackson, a commentator who said he cheered when he saw Harris confront Biden during the debate.
Biden not only misread the room, he misread the time.
Second, forgiveness is not unique to blacks. Whites often forgive those who wrong them as well.
Third, IMO Kamala Harris is an opportunist who will do anything to advance her personal cause. She sensed opportunity and she struck Biden by playing the race card. As it is, it looks like she lied about some of what she put out such as busing and Berkeley elementary being segregated at the time she went there. She is another Hillary Clinton.
[Jpost] Turkey and UAE support different sides as foreign weapons flow into conflict.
Turkey likes the ineffective Government of National Accord, the UAE and Egypt like General Haftar’s Libyan National Army.

[PolitiChicks] Progressive policies pretty much always result in the same thing: the poor stay poor, the middle class gets poorer, and the rich stay rich ‐ even if a little less so.
It reminds me of something Margaret Thatcher said 23 years ago of liberals, "They would rather the poor were poorer, provided that the rich were less rich." Thatcher’s comment is as true today as it was then.
Isn’t it interesting that despite the reliable failure of progressive policies, they continue their dogged advocacy of doubling down?
It’s even more mystifying given that so many progressive Democrats are indeed themselves rich elites. If you’re rich, why push an agenda designed to make yourself "a little less rich?"
Some blame it on liberal guilt. Others claim it’s do-gooderism. But if either of these motives are true, then why push policies that impoverish everyone else? Neither guilt nor good intentions can possibly be satisfied by hurting others.
I have a different explanation. To me it looks like it’s all a grab for political power.
I say that first because a recurring historical pattern shows elites of nearly any ideological stripe ‐ whether monied or intellectual ‐ tend to desire control over their neighbors. In fact, it seems power over others is one of those common maladies of the human heart that mobilizes and motivates every bit as much as lust or greed.
[Babylon Bee] Calling the measure a "major breakthrough" for the state's education system, Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law Friday a bill that mandates field trips to gay bars, strip clubs, and abortion clinics for the state's second graders.
"It's important that our kids receive a comprehensive education," Newsom said in a ceremony marking the bill's signing. "For too long, kids in our elementary schools today have not had a fully interactive LGBTQ+ experience. Sure, they can go to their local library and have a drag queen read them a story, or they can dress in drag themselves and go dance at gay bars as we applaud their actions. But it's not enough."
"That all ends today with the signing of the Gay Bar Field Trip Equality Act. Now, we can be assured that our state's kids will be fully immersed in alternative lifestyle education," he said proudly.
Kids will be taken to a local gay bar and given a free beer. They will be free to ask any questions about the LGBT lifestyle, as long as they don't condemn it. Some lucky students may even be selected to work at the bar. "This isn't creepy, trust me," Newsom said.
Governor Newsom continued to assure parents, however, that California public schools are unbiased institutions and that the kids are not being brainwashed to accept the LGBT agenda.
