Sen. Rand Paul Decries the National Archives
In the following seven-minute video, Sen. Rand Paul relates how, during a day when people along with their children came to Washington DC to visit historical buildings as well as to participate in a Right To Life parade and demonstration, the marchers were forced to cover up the messages on the shirts that they wore.
While visiting the National Archives (NA), a young woman was told by the NA security guards that she had to cover up the words printed on her shirt: “Life Is A Human Right.”
But it gets worse.
The National Archives is also charged with preserving the federal records of US Presidents. Yet the NA staff was able to use overkill to attack Trump for his storage of historical records, a storing of documents that Trump had managed in compliance with requirements, while they were ignoring what Biden did with his sloppy storage of records.
I’d like to say Sen. Paul spent the remaining time re-hashing his earlier comments, but it only gets worse. The longer I listened, the madder I got. He refers to how the National Archives might be behind re-wording or amending the US Constitution. (!!??)
It is profoundly satisfying that Sen. Paul is on top of so many issues that are basic to our nation being a land of liberty. It is deeply troubling that so few other Congress critters can discern the problems which must be stopped now before they lead to a path of Americans without any rights.

That is pretty bad.
One can only imagine what that the NA DEI brigade will do with the founding documents to make them fit the current fashion, perhaps “trigger warnings” for the Constitution and the Declaration of Independance.
I’m acronym challenged.
What does DEI refer to? Department of Equity and Inclusion is my guess, but I really don’t know.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
I notice in my wild guess I got these virtues in the wrong order.
That most likely would be a hanging offense in certain quarters.
I’m pretty sure a few years ago, as this name was coming together, I saw someone use Diversity, Inclusion, Equity. Probably stopped once someone pieced together the acronym.
I recommend people always refer to it by it’s original acronym: DIE. They changed the order because of the “bad optics”.
