    Trump can only be said to have fulfilled the first of your three principles if you have too limited of an idea of what constitutes taking more of your money in taxes. https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/M2SL

    But the thing is 100% of people are religious. Atheists are some of the most religious people of all.

    Even if you support tariffs, you should also support having them be voluntary. They shouldn't be imposed on people who don't support them. If we didn't have tariffs, those of you who support them could (and would, provided you are sincere) just voluntarily send extra money to the government every time you buy something from someone from a different country. I'm sure that all of you who think tariffs are too low have already been doing this, unless you don't really mean what you say.

    I'm not saying that either. But we should be accurate when it comes to matters of fact. And we shouldn't have a double standard where the exact same words only mean defunding education when they're in a Trump EO but mean banning free speech when they're in a law passed by Congress.

    all executive departments and agencies (agencies) charged with enforcing Title VI." So, when Trump issued an EO that said the same thing this act says, somehow it accomplished nothing other than defunding certain schools. But when this act says it, somehow the same words refer to prohibiting certain acts? The only difference is that one time it was Trump and the other time it wasn't.

    I bet you must have been really upset with Trump when he did that. He didn't even wait for Congress to codify it into law. He just dictated it to be so by his own fiat. I bet there are some fiery threads in the forum from 2019 with comments from you rhetorically ripping Trump a new sphincter for that. *does search of forum* Whoops. Nope. I was wrong. You were all for it. Your exact words were, "I happen to agree. Good for him." http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?542208-Trump-guts-the-First-Amendment-signs-Executive-Order-suppressing-criticism-of-Israel&p=6899701&viewfull=1#post6899701

    Here's a relevant fact to add to this discussion. The federal government has already been using the IHRA definition of antisemitism in its enforcement of the Civil Rights Act since 2019. This policy was adopted via an executive order by Trump. https://trumpwhitehouse.archives.gov/presidential-actions/executive-order-combating-anti-semitism/

    I read your bullet points. But none of them answer my question. I'm not sure if you understood the question at all. Or if you understood the meaning of your own words when you claimed, "It is all about changing history and facts, and keeping them away from learners." I don't understand how it's even logically possible for a legislative act to change facts. Are you under the impression that if Congress passes a law that defines a word a certain way that somehow this limits what facts are discoverable by people who do research?

    If we just expand the jurisdiction of the regime widely enough, no wars will be foreign any more. The same logic that justifies the institution of the state over a territory of any size also justifies the institution of a single regime over the entire globe.

    I don't know for a fact. But I doubt that you are correct about this. If somebody actually discriminated against someone in the form of not allowing them equal enjoyment of some goods and services at a public accommodation, and their reason was because of exactly what this act defines as antisemitism, I bet that they could already be prosecuted for violation of the CRA under current law. The holding of the beliefs that are being defined as antisemitic, or even the vocal support of those beliefs, does not constitute discrimination by itself, either under current law, or under this act. This antisemitism (whether rightly or wrongly defined) would still need to be accompanied by discriminatory acts in order to be a violation of the law.

    He made some assertions. But I saw no support for those assertions in what is actually written in this act. What prohibited acts are you talking about? I saw no acts being prohibited in the text of this act. You have to go to the original text of the CRA to see what acts are prohibited. Edit: I'm sure there is plenty of other legislation between 1964 and today that expands on the CRA and adds to the list of banned acts. But if there's anything in this act that does that, I can't find it.

    That teeth that you mention is already in existing law. That is what it explicitly says. If you were under the impression that the Civil Rights Act hasn't already been enforced against antisemitic discrimination, you were mistaken. And that is explicitly all that this act legislates. In the actual text of the act, I can't find a single new thing that it bans or authorizes the FBI to investigate that isn't already banned and that the FBI isn't already authorized to investigate under current law. In order for a violation of the CRA to take place there still has to be discrimination in the form of not affording people equal opportunity to have goods, services, accommodations, associations, etc., from some place that the government considers a public establishment. Without that kind of discrimination, speech and opinion by itself doesn't constitute a violation. All that speech and opinion can do is point to the motive for the violation. And this act does nothing to change that.

    If a Jewish person worked at an office that had Hitler posters all over and could show that a promotion was given to a less qualified coworker, I am pretty sure that under current law those Hitler posters would be considered in court as evidence to support the charge that their employer discriminated against them because they're Jewish. The same thing would be true if it were a black person and the office had posters of KKK members burning crosses.

    You were not able to find any quotes from the act that made anything illegal that isn't already. The act doesn't make criticism of Israel, or any other speech or opinion, de facto discrimination. Those things would still need to be accompanied with some kind of actual discrimination as defined by the Civil Rights Act.

    Where does it say anything about the FBI investigating anybody for that? This strikes me as essentially no different than a resolution with no impact on the law at all. It's just politicians passing a law to express an opinion that has no teeth to it.

    That doesn't answer the question. Who would be legally obligated to provide for the evicted baby? Sure, some evicted babies would have adoptive parents who would voluntarily take on that obligation. But unless that's legally a prerequisite to the eviction, I think the question still needs to be answered.

There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.
