Trump Supporter Roughed Up At Bernie Sanders Rally

During a Bernie Sanders rally at Virginia Wesleyan University, an overzealous campus security guard got caught on video tackling a Trump supporter who was waving a “Trump 2020” flag. VWU claims that the Trump supporter, identified as Markus Gohring, was “a disruptive attendee.” College Fix reports: The guard who (allegedly) ultimately tackled Gohring tells him “Leave! I’m not gonna tell you again,” “You are not following my instructions,” and “Nobody gotta tell me to tell you to leave.” The guard adds “You’re on my property. This is private property. (VWU is a private college; however, the Sanders event was advertised as ...

Socialist Schemes Never Work

During the Tuesday evening debate in South Carolina, Senator Bernie Sanders lauded the supposed benefits to a socialized healthcare system. Bernie, for decades now, has been seriously misinformed. His most recent detractor is a surprising one: the Coronavirus. We’ll let Tom Rogan with the Washington Examiner explain: Bernie Sanders advanced his anti-pharmaceutical industry narrative at the Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday. He's only showing us that we're lucky he's not president as the COVID-19 epidemic grows. "The advantage of a Medicare for All healthcare program, because it's not driven by profits for the drug companies and the ...

Ocasio-Cortez Lets The Big Secret Slip

Socialism continues to rear its ugly head in this modern time. With self-proclaimed socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders now at the forefront of the Democratic Party, the left’s lurch toward progressivism doesn’t seem to be coming to a stop anytime soon. Ocasio-Cortez is becoming even more brazen with her push for socialism in recent days. MRCTV’s Brittany Hughes documents Ocasio-Cortez’ recent comments at an MLK event: “And so, no one ever makes a billion dollars. You take a billion dollars,” she accused. AOC went on to tell billionaires that she doesn't want their money, but rather their "power." "To be ...

The Democratic Debate Was Boring, Until This Happened

The January edition of the Democratic debate brought the least diverse field of candidates to the stage, as Andrew Yang missed the qualifying marks set by the DNC. What ensued was probably the most anticlimactic event experienced on national television since The Mystery of Al Capone’s Vaults. IN fact, the most exciting and interesting thing to take place surrounding the debate happened right after it ended. Senator Elizabeth Warren accosted Senator Bernie Sanders on a hot mic. USA Today has the exchange in full: In audio released by CNN Wednesday night, you can hear Warren saying, "I think you called me a liar on national TV." "What?" Sanders ...

Big Government Hurts the Homeless

Socialists claim the only way to lift people out of poverty is through federal government programs. In reality, big government often keeps people in poverty by preventing local groups from effectively responding to the situation on the ground. Matt Weidinger, Resident Fellow in Poverty Studies at AEI, reports on how the federal government is preventing a Kentucky homeless shelter from serving those in need: “The Franklin County Women and Family Shelter (FCWFS) is one of several homeless shelters in Frankfort. Opened a decade ago to address rising homelessness driven in part by opioid and meth epidemics that have devastated many parts of the ...

Free Market Healthcare Solutions

Healthcare continues to be one of the most contentious and important debates we have in America. Everyone needs some kind of healthcare, from dentists to surgeons. In fact, Americans rank healthcare as the number one policy issue for voters; though, the populace remains split as to how we should go about fixing the industry. The Heritage Foundation thankfully has a solution: the free market. Watch this Heritage Foundation video to learn more: https://youtu.be/BtEdYly-97g   One of the most important points that Heritage touches on is the seven states that obtained waivers from Obamacare mandates to try and implement other policies and ...

The Cost of Big Government

If you work for a living, odds are you’ve looked at your paycheck at the end of the month and been annoyed at how much of your money the federal government takes. And as more time passes, it seems like big government continues to take more and more of your hard earned money. Under President Trump, for the first time in a long time, this seemed to change. The Trump Tax Cuts were a breath of fresh air, after 8 years of Barack Obama’s big government policies. But, as 2020 looms, Democrats are poised to institute even larger big government policies, if they win the Presidency. And despite their grandiose promises, one thing is clear, the Democrat...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: To Stop Socialism, There Needs To Be Awareness

Montana Republican Sen. Steve Daines introduced a new resolution—S. Res. 289—to denounce socialism as it “poses a significant threat to freedom, liberty and economic prosperity.” Is it necessary? Absolutely! The problem is very few people out there know and understand the incoming threat of socialism. RealClear Politics has Jenny Beth’s commentary: The truth of the Bennett “open gates” test is so obvious that if I did not know better, I would think the Daines resolution is irrelevant and unnecessary. Yet, according to the polling industry’s best practitioners, too many of our fellow citizens out there – tens of millio...

Socialism: Dreams of “justice” & “shared wealth” end in starvation, extreme poverty, & tyranny

For years, American socialists pointed to Venezuela as an example of how well socialism could work. Celebrities flocked to the country for meetings and photo-ops with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. They commended his promises to end poverty and end the “injustice” of wealth and private property, and his increase in “social spending,” scolding American Presidents for not being as forward-thinking as Chavez. In fact, if you took Chavez’ statements, proclamations, and promises, and put them side-by-side with Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the multitude of other socialists in American politics, you wouldn...

A Coup in Socialist Venezuela is Finally Underway

The people of Venezuela are fed up with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and the tyranny that has led to inflation, starvation, and violence in the country. The 35-year-old lawmaker Juan Guaido took to the streets of Caracas with heavily armed forces to promote the “final phase” to oust Maduro. “The armed forces have taken the right decision,” Guaido said. “With the support of the Venezuelan people and the backing of our constitution, they are on the right side of history. The moment is now.” The White House supports the military coup to take down a socialist dictator who has only brought pain and suffering to the people of ...
