A Bad News Week for Socialists in the US

U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- The news is filled with stories of political corruption and oppression. The ugly face of statist-control is staring at us just behind the headlines and the media spin. Unfortunately, the legacy media is more interested in hiding the truth than reporting it. This is what I noticed.

  • Family members of Democrat leaders Biden, Kerry and Pelosi took huge contributions from foreign energy companies. So did the Clintons. The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives wants to impeach President Trump for investigating some of those payoffs.
  • David Daleiden was convicted of video recording the horrible practices of Planned Parenthood. His real crime was embarrassing the California politicians who receive millions of dollars of political contributions from Planned Parenthood. The judge in this case was a board member at a clinic affiliated with Planned Parenthood, and the judge refused to recuse himself from the case.
  • Chinese police threaten to shoot unarmed protesters in Hong Kong while imposing mass arrests and deportations. The unarmed Chinese citizens are powerless in the face of a brutal government.
  • Venezuelan Death Squads kill unarmed political activists to suppress ongoing dissent.
  • All the Democrat presidential candidates said US citizens should be disarmed unless they are government employees.
Do politicians deserve our trust?

Each of these stories deserves front-page news coverage. Each one of those subjects deserves a full article at Slowfacts. My point is that our politicians, our legal system, and our news media are deeply biased to serve political ends. Today, our laws and regulations are so complex that they are counter productive; they thwart justice and serve political corruption rather than moderating it. As current events show us, that doesn’t end well.

In the USA, laws are for the little people, but not for politically connected multi-millionaires.

I have my biases also. I like messy freedom. I’ve meet too many self-serving people to want my country’s future in the hands of politicians or news agencies. Government is supposed to be limited. There are supposed to be checks and balances between political interests and between different branches of government. Since we are corruptible, and we are, then unlimited power leads to unlimited corruption. The headlines I listed showcase the brutal face of government power.

The good news is that times have changed. Human nature stays the same, but we know about this corruption because of the internet. We know more than what our local paper or CNN wants us to know. We can read widely, and the best sources are outside the mainstream legacy media. The only solution I see to preserve liberty is for us to get involved in our local politics and tell the truth on social media.

Freedom is always dangerous, but it is the safest thing we have.

Please hold on to it.

We may not be able to do much about the rest of the world, if anything at all; but we can physically remove all leftists from America. That way their tyrannical policies and thinking will never plague us again.

As time goes on you will see the NECESSITY of doing this to prevent America from turning into a leftist 3rd-world sh!thole like Venezuela. Our cities are 90% there already.

I wouldn’t put this just on politicians, I think the over bloated number of federal workers is another issue that needs addressing. According to what I have seen on the Shiffy time wasting act I find the employees are pissed at Trump for wanting to know about the corruption of Ukraine before giving them many millions of tax payer dollars. They speak like it is chump change and he had no business in questioning what these people would do with our money. Guess what, these career do nothings need to be put on the street or pick sh-t with the… Read more »

Jack is the only son of Awe Schitt and O. Schitt. Awe Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, married O. Schitt, a partner of Kneedeep & Schitt, Inc.

When Solyndra was big news, it was left out that democrats Pelosi, Boxer and a host of democrat state representatives had their children and grandchildren on the payroll of Solyndra as “managers”. True, none of them spent one second at the plant, but they were paid a fat check every month until the money pot dried up. In a REPUBLIC, the People are the boss. Over the years the American people have been brainwashed to believe that all governments, city, state & federal, are your masters. They are NOT! PEOPLE created governments as servants. Governments, as is their nature, accumulate… Read more »

The day IS coming when the American citizens will have had enough. The more the politicians push to disarm us the more it obvious that we need them. If this were 1775, the balls would already be flying. Every time politicians, judges, lawyers, enforcement people disavow their oath of office by not recognizing every free American citizen’s right to self defense, right to life, the right to keep and bare arms they are literally committing treason. Every time a American citizen gets assaulted or murdered because they were unable to defend themselves because they were denied their GOD given, constitutionally… Read more »

A very accurate description of what is happening in this world. We will be next if we allow it because we can already see they are trying to steam roll over us. Watching the impeachment circus is enough to tell us what government employees are like, not a good picture.

Those in power become more oppressive when their status quo is challenged. They will lie, cheat, steal, phony up charges against anyone they perceive a threat and care less about dragging the Union through absolute hell, spending millions of taxpayer dollars, to retain that power. We see this today, President Trump has been continuously attacked by these vermin, i.e., so called public servants and their conspirators in media outlets. They do this two fold: 1). because the President refuses to bow down to them, and 2). because they have to distract from the truth, as they are guilty of the… Read more »

What we’re seeing is a true success story. In very slow incremental steps they’ve indoctrinated several generations of people who have little, or no, knowledge of the history of Socialism, Communism, Fascism, and other forms of tyrannical government. Worse yet they have little understanding of economics, personal accountability, and the rule of law. As a society we’ve allowed this to happen right under our noses. Most of the early excuses were that “it doesn’t affect me”, but now it’s clearly the excuse of “I don’t have time to care”. More and more ‘free’ benefits and pandering has comforted large groups… Read more »

The totally biased MSM outlets and social media are the enemies of the people. At one time they exposed all gov’t misconduct which is why they are granted 1st amendment status. These days you have to research multiple sites to find out what’s really going on without spin applied. Our youth view everything they see on their devices as gospel truth, and to be honest most are politically ignorant as our educational system is biased as well.
