Just Give Socialism A Chance

It is still amazing that anyone who knows anything about what is occurring in Venezuela after 15 years of  Socialism are left scratching their heads and asking, what went wrong? (Must be Bush’s fault)-

When Hugo Chavez was democratically elected 15 years ago as the Socialist Party’s answer to Venezuela’s problems, the sky was the limit. The majority of the voters wanted what he promised, the country had all the money in the world with it’s oil reserves, had the support of Cuba, China, Iran and a handle full of other South American countries.

So why after 15 years of Socialism bliss is the population living with one of the highest murder rates in the world, a shortage of household goods, baby formula, diapers, medicines and FOOD???????

Oh yeah, and if you should publicly question why or come up with the answer, prepare for jail.

You all know the answer-  SOCIALISM DOES NOT WORK- PERIOD. This is not a debatable point. The data throughout history shows us the validity of this statement. And please do not say, “It cannot happen here in America” because that’s what millions said in Venezuela.

Wake up folks!!!

Inmates Running the Obama Administration Asylum


On Wednesday’s program, Mark Levin discusses the idiocy of the Iran Nuclear Deal and it’s usurping of the Constitution. Here are some excerpts:

“Can there be any doubt that this flawed Iran nuke deal is a treaty? And a treaty must be ratified by the Senate with a vote of two thirds of the members present. But as we all know the Republicans have surrendered this by allowing this constitutional process to be bypassed.

“John Kerry’s excuse for the Obama the administration’s circumventing the Constitution on the Iran nuke deal is that it’s: ‘physically impossible to get a treaty through the United States Senate.’ He goes on to say: “…That’s why, because you can’t pass a treaty anymore. And uh, it’s become impossible to uh you know, schedule, it’s become impossible to pass.”

Levin’s comment on this: “…So in other words, ladies and gentlemen, because they can’t get the sixty seven senators, assuming all senators are present, that is two thirds of the members present, in the Senate, the House has no role. We’re just going to blow it off. Treaties were intended to be rare. Treaties were intended to be difficult to ratify, particularly treaties like this, like this.

“So, you just heard the man say: ‘Look, I spent time in the Senate, they’re physically impossible to get passed, and so the hell with treaties!’ And not (laughing) a burp anywhere. OK, the hell with treaties? You’re not going to submit the stuff to the Senate because it’s physically impossible to get it passed? I think that’s incredible.”

They talked about the side deals which nobody has read. Kerry actually went on to say that: “I have no specific knowledge of a plan by Iran to actually destroy us.” Of course, Levin went on to destroy John Kerry. Listen. Secretary of Energy Dr. Ernest Moniz was asked by Senator Tom Cotton if he has ever read any of the agreements. His response: “Nope!” Secretary of Defense Ash Carter wasn’t any better. And on and on, and on and on.

And hence, the title of this piece: Inmates Running the Obama Administration Asylum

Comparing Apples To Apples

When Chris Matthews from MSNBC get’s worried, we need to listen-       Chris Matthews chatted with DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz tonight and things got awkward fast when they dived into talking about Bernie Sanders.

Wasserman-Schultz talked up his “progressive populist message” that people like, when Matthews asked her point-blank, “What’s the difference between a Democrat and a socialist? I used to think there was a big difference. What do you think it is?”

Wasserman-Schultz ducked the question, but Matthews pressed her and said, “You’re the chairman of the Democratic Party. Tell me what’s the difference between you and a socialist.”

She insisted that the bigger debate is the gulf between the Democrats and the Republicans on the issues.


The Boehner Saga Goes On

Revealing the character of the man: John Boehner doesn’t think much of the recent challenge to his leadership by North Carolina Congressman, Mark Meadows. He doesn’t think much about his constituents or the American people either. In fact, he says it’s: “No Big Deal.”

Motion to Bounce Boehner in Tea Party Coup

Transcript:  What happens when you sell-out your political party one too many times? You get bounced. And Tea Party leader Mark Meadows just filed a motion to bounce Boehner as Speaker of the House.

And if a no -confidence vote in the full House aligns with Mr. Meadows and the coup succeeds, it’s bye-bye Boehner. But if it fails, Boehner will likely make life miserable for Meadows, blocking him key committees, and maybe allowing him to sweep the floors or take out the trash.

Meanwhile, John Boehner, ever eager to cut a deal with the devil or the Democrats or both, is hanging in by a thread, pending the House Rules Committee gatekeepers decision whether or not to pick up the motion.

And if John Boehner receives the left foot of fellowship by right-leaning Republicans, we will soon see a new House Speaker assume the 3rd most powerful position in government. But who will he or she be?

According to The Hill magazine, Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is on the short list. Not making The list is Trey Gowdy but could you imagine how interesting House sessions would be if the brilliant and brave Trey Gowdy were elected Speaker? C-SPANs ratings might reach a record number of viewers. And with 60% of Republicans polled wanting a new House leader, we soon may see a Speaker Walker or Speaker Gowdy or…

Allen West Explodes During Fiery Times Square Speech


Former Florida Congressman Allen West absolutely exploded in New York City’s Times Square on Wednesday. The Republican strongly criticized President Barack Obama’s leadership calling him a “weakling” and “charlatan.” “I want President Obama to know one thing,” West said. “You may say that you have done something that no one else has done. You know why no one else has done it? Because it’s a damn stupid thing you just did.”

He continued: “If people are upset because of what I’m saying, I really don’t care. Because I had a father that stood at World War II…I gave 22 years of my life to make sure that that great beacon of liberty, freedom and democracy continues to stand. And I have a nephew, I have friends that are still serving on the front lines — and my commitment is to the oath that I took on 31, July, 1982, to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

Organizers estimated roughly 10,000 people attended the rally on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press.

Seattle Sees Unexpected Fallout from $15 per Hour Min. Wage

The Law of Unintended Consequences strikes again!
Seattle Minimum Wage

Low wage workers in Seattle who spent months agitating for a city-wide $15-per-hour minimum wage were quite successful in their quest. But many have suddenly found that the new rate has had unexpected consequences.

Some workers across the city are left telling bosses to give them fewer hours at the higher wage because a full week’s earnings now puts them past the threshold for some welfare payments such as food stamps and assistance with rent.

Of course, one of the things that supporters of the higher wage said was that they wanted to help lift min. wage workers out of poverty and welfare.

Only last week, for instance, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti claimed that a $15 min. wage in his city would lift 600,000 out of poverty. Self-avowed socialist

Sen. Bernie Sanders , a VT Senator and a candidate for the Democrat nomination in 2016, also recently claimed that a $15 min. wage would “lift millions” of Americans out of poverty, off welfare, and into the buying public.

But now some workers in Seattle are finding that the higher wage is forcing them off the welfare programs they would rather stay enrolled in and, instead of celebrating their higher income, they are imposing fewer work hours on themselves in order to stay on assistance.

The conservative activist group Citizens United is releasing a new poll of its membership, which surveyed some 4,000 activists across the country. Just two percent approve of the job Congress is doing. More than 90 percent want their Member of Congress to replace current House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)

“After four and a half years as Speaker, it’s become crystal clear that grassroots conservatives are through being patient with John Boehner,” David N. Bossie, president of Citizens United, said in a release. “Conservatives are clearly ready for new leadership in the U.S. House.”

The next scheduled vote for Speaker of the House will occur after the 2016 Presidential elections. Republicans are widely expected to maintain their majority in the House.

Republicans reclaimed the House majorityBoehner End is Near after the 2010 midterms elections, largely on opposition to ObamaCare and a failed economic stimulus package.

Since Republicans took control of the House, the nation’s total debt burden has grown almost 40 percent, rising from around $13 trillion in 2010 to $18 trillion today. Continue reading at breitbart.com.

Big Brother Stinks – LITERALLY

By Eric Boehm | Watchdog.org

If the cops in Seattle want to dig through a city resident’s garbage to look for evidence of a crime, they have to go get a warrant first.

But garbage collectors in Seattle are not only allowed to dig through the trash without a judge’s consent, they’re actually required to do so.

Shutterstock image - GOING THROUGH THE TRASH: Seattle is on the cutting edge of nanny state-ism with a new citywide ban on throwing any compostable material into the trash, no matter how gross, smelly or disgusting it might be. And the city government has deputized the trashmen as a sort of secret police who are being ordered to rat on residents’ trash habits.

Seattle is on the cutting edge of nanny state-ism with a new citywide ban on throwing any compostable material into the trash, no matter how gross, smelly or disgusting it might be. The city government is serious about this — so serious that they have deputized the trashmen as a sort of secret police who are being ordered to rat on residents’ trash habits to the nannies at Seattle Public Utilities.

If this sounds like an arrangement that violates a whole bunch of amendments to the U.S. Constitution (and the Washington State Constitution too, in the event you’re familiar with it), well, you’re not alone.

Trump Going to Texas-Mexico Border

Breitbart Texas has learned that 2016 Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump is heading to the Texas-Mexico border to get a firsthand look at the current border security situation. Trump is expected to meet with Border Patrol agents of the Laredo Sector.

“We look forward to giving Mr. Trump a boots on the ground perspective on the Laredo Sector of the Texas-Mexico Border,” said National Border Patrol Council, Local 2455 President Hector Garza. “Mr. Trump is expected to be in Laredo later in the week.”

Garza told Breitbart Texas that following the border tour, Trump will have a town hall style meeting where law enforcement officers will be invited to provide feedback on their perspective of the border situation.

Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby worked with Agent Garza to prepare for Trump’s border tour. “It is of utmost importance that possible future leaders of our country visit the border region, especially the Laredo Sector. Most Texans and other Americans hear that the Texas border was secured, but it wasn’t. The Rio Grande Valley Sector was supplemented with manpower from the State of Texas, but that mostly stopped where that sector ended and the Laredo Sector begins.” Darby added, “Mr. Trump will learn firsthand of the many holes and vulnerabilities that the Los Zetas cartel exploits to enter Texas and oppress their victims. We will keep the details of Mr. Trump’s intended visit private at this time.” Continue reading at breitbart.com.
