ABC News Says Confiscation is the Key to Stopping Gun Violence

FixThisNation - Sun, 11/12/2017 - 06:57

Even the most liberal of liberal Democrats in Washington, D.C. will go out of their way to tell Americans that they have no interest – NONE – in going into people’s homes and taking away their guns. That’s just NRA conspiracy nonsense, don’t you know? No one actually wants to do that, even if we do spend an inordinate amount of time talking about Australia’s success with their own mass confiscation scheme. But no, no, we’re big defenders of the Second Amendment over here in the Democratic Party. We just want commonsense solutions like universal background checks, guyz. That’s all! We promise!

But then you get laws that they recently passed in places like California, Oregon, Washington, and Connecticut that show the lie behind the denials. Because while those states have not begun implementing anything quite so drastic as widespread mandatory buybacks, they have passed laws that allow guns to be confiscated from law-abiding citizens with no more than a judge’s order. No due process needed. All that’s necessary is the word of a friend or family member, a judge’s sign-off, and presto-chango, you lose your guns for a while. And if you take ABC News’s word for it, this is exactly the kind of law we need to roll out nationwide.

“One relatively unknown tool for stopping gun violence may soon get a lot more attention,” they write. “An Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) empowers family members and police to take guns away from a person who may pose a danger to themselves or others. The person’s access to firearms is blocked until they can demonstrate that the risk is over. Essentially, ERPOs are a temporary restraining order for guns.”

Until they can demonstrate that the risk is over?

Well, that’s certainly up for some debate, now isn’t it? How does one demonstrate that “the risk” is over? How does one prove they are no longer in a homicidal state of mind? How does one prove a state of mind to begin with? We’re talking about suspending a person’s constitutional rights using concepts that are scientifically questionable and legally unacceptable.

ABC News goes on to interview those rascally gun-grabbers at Everytown for Gun Safety to get a nice, balanced view of the issue.

“While it is impossible to determine how many of the recent shooting tragedies ERPOs could have prevented, they could have provided at least another layer of protection,” said Everytown’s deputy legal director, William Rosen. “Mass shooters often display warning signs before they carry out their attacks, and ERPO provides an opportunity for family members or law enforcement to intervene before a tragedy occurs.”

So here we have Chief Abolish Guns himself admitting that we really have no idea if these ERPOs actually do anything, but hey, they make us feel a lot better. And we can use weasel words like “often” to make our case about mass shootings and no one can really hold us accountable.

Well, that’s great, but we’re going to need a little bit more than your word for it before we start grabbing guns all over the place because Aunt Francine thinks her nephew Bobby is too unhinged to have a firearm for his personal protection. If that’s all it takes to get around the Second Amendment then we don’t HAVE a Second Amendment.

If we can make a round that is significantly better than the existing 5.56mm or 7.62mm ammunition, shouldn’t the military just bite the bullet and switch, to the benefit of the servicemen and women in harm’s way?

6 Months To Go Until Election Day, And I Am Praying For Some Help

The Economic Collapse Blog - Sat, 11/11/2017 - 22:10

I need your help if I am going to overcome the vicious attacks that are coming from the left and win on May 15th.  I know that most people are focused on preparing for the upcoming holidays this time of the year, but for this campaign crunch time has officially arrived.  Idaho’s first congressional district is extremely conservative, and so whoever wins the Republican primary next May is almost certainly going to be the next member of Congress.  Since Raul Labrador is running for governor, there is no incumbent in this race, and that means that it is totally wide open.  The numbers are telling us that we have a very clear path to victory, but the only way that we will be able to emerge victorious is if we have enough resources to finish the race.  This month we were running so low that we actually had to cut back on some of the things that we were planning to do.  If this continues, we won’t be able to get our message out as effectively as we need to and another candidate could try to pull an upset victory by simply outspending us.  I am praying for some help, and if every one of my readers were to make just a small donation today we would have everything that we need for the rest of the campaign by tomorrow

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

We launched this campaign on July 4th, and it is literally a miracle how far we have come in such little time.  Many of the most prominent conservatives in the entire state have gotten involved, people all over the district are buzzing about how well we are doing, and we won the most recent online poll.

But we are rapidly outgrowing our limited resources.

Earlier today I got some great news over the telephone.  We have the opportunity to put up a whole bunch of 4×8 signs in south Idaho, and each of those signs will be seen thousands of times a day.

But in order to do that, we have got to print up more 4×8 signs, and they are expensive.  And more 4×8 signs are not even on the list of extremely pressing campaign needs that we are currently raising money for.

In faith, I believe that we are going to put up all of those signs, and I am asking for your help to get that done

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Did you happen to see what happened on Tuesday?  Republican candidates got killed all over the nation.  It was a major league wake up call, because we are in the midst of a battle for the future of this country, and right now the Democrats have all of the momentum.

If the Democrats take back control of both the Senate and the House in 2018, they are going to try to impeach Donald Trump.  And even if establishment Republicans remain marginally in control, they may try to remove Trump anyway because many establishment Republicans would jump at the chance to betray our president.

The 2018 mid-term elections are a golden opportunity for us to elect pro-Trump candidates all over the nation.  There are several dozen running, but we are only going to win if you all get behind us.  If pro-Trump candidates don’t win the Republican primaries that will start happening in just a few months, there won’t be anyone good to vote for in November 2018, and the mid-term elections will be lost before they even happen.

This is such a critical moment in our history, and I am asking you to support those that are sacrificing incredible amounts of time, effort, money and energy in order to run.  Please support my campaign, because we very much need a financial miracle right now

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

We are also working on new language for our brochure, and we have come up with a list of 22 reasons why people should support our campaign.  Look this list over and then let me know any changes that you would make…

#1 A Pro-Trump Christian Conservative – Michael is the most conservative candidate in this race, and he is proud to stand with President Trump.

#2 It’s Time To Drain The Swamp – The same rules that apply to the rest of us should also apply to Congress, and Michael will actively fight corruption on every front.

#3 Every RINO Must Go – Way too many Republicans have been fighting Trump’s agenda and acting like Democrats. It is time to hold them accountable, and that means every ‘Republican in name only’ needs to go.

#4 100% Pro-Life – No money for Planned Parenthood ever. Nearly 60 million babies have been murdered since 1973, and Michael is making an unbreakable pledge to vote against any bill that funds Planned Parenthood 100% of the time.

#5 100% Pro-Gun – The Constitution says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Michael believes that every American has a constitutional right to carry a gun, and he will never back down from defending the Second Amendment even a single inch.

#6 Abolish The IRS & The Income Tax – We didn’t have an income tax from 1872 to 1913, and that was the greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history. As we fight a long-term battle to abolish the income tax, in the short-term we can at least go to a flat tax or a fair tax, both of which would be far superior to what we have now.

#7 Abolish The Federal Reserve – Since the Fed was created in 1913, we have had 18 recessions, the value of the U.S. dollar has fallen by about 98 percent, and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 6000 times larger. Abolishing this debt-based system is one of the keys to a bright economic future for America.

#8 Getting Federal Bureaucrats Off Our Backs – Michael will work to get the federal government off of the backs of our farmers, our loggers, our miners, our ranchers and our small business owners.

#9 Local Control Of Education – It is time to get the federal government out of the education business. Michael wants to abolish Common Core and the Department of Education, and he wants control over education to be as close to the local level as possible.

#10 Shut Down Big Brother Spying – Government agencies have been conducting unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens for decades, and that needs to stop now.

#11 True Limited Government – President Trump has proposed shutting down more than 60 different government programs and agencies. That would be a good start. Instead of asking which government agencies we should close, we should be asking which government agencies really need to remain open.

#12 100% Repeal Of Obamacare – Rapidly rising health insurance premiums are financially crippling Idaho families. Republicans in Congress have fumbled the ball, and we must repeal Obamacare immediately.

#13 Build The Wall – We need to make sure that everyone comes into this country through the front door. We must end illegal immigration, and so Michael supports President Trump’s call to build a wall on the southern border.

#14 Supporting Our Veterans – Michael’s father is a vet, and Michael will work passionately to make sure that our veterans receive the respect, care and support that they deserve.

#15 Fighting Islamic Terror – Michael fully supports the fight against ISIS, and he will push for legislation that would give local communities all over America the option to say no to refugees from terrorist hotbeds.

#16 Stopping Reckless Government Spending – We are 20 trillion dollars in debt and we continue to steal more than 100 million dollars from future generations every single hour of every single day.

#17 Bringing Jobs Back To America – The U.S. has lost more than 70,000 factories since China joined the WTO in 2001. Our formerly great manufacturing cities now look like war zones, and we desperately need to start making things in this country once again.

#18 Resisting The Globalists – We must strongly fight all attempts by the globalists to erode American sovereignty.

#19 Supporting States Rights – It is almost as if the 10th Amendment doesn’t even exist today. If Michael is elected, this is what his message to the feds will be: ‘Hand over the keys and get out of Idaho’.

#20 Removing The Wolves – Under Bill Clinton, Canadian gray wolves were brought to Idaho. These wolves travel in packs and are killing machines. Michael is 100% committed to removing these wolves from our state.

#21 Holding Judges Accountable – Federal judges that disregard the U.S. Constitution and that choose to legislate from the bench should be subject to impeachment.

#22 An Unashamed Christian – Michael is not ashamed to say that he is a Bible-believing Christian, and if we truly want to make America great again we need to return to the values and principles that this nation was founded upon.

This message is resonating with voters wherever we go, and people all over the district are eagerly asking us to hold more campaign events, but in order to do that we have got to have more funding.

In this campaign we have seen little miracle after little miracle, and now we need another one.  I am praying for help, and I am asking you to prayerfully consider making a contribution today

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

If you live in Idaho, please let us know that you would like to have a bumper sticker and we’ll get one mailed out to you.  And please don’t forget to let us know what you think of the 22 points that we are working on for the next round of brochures.

Of course what we need more than anything is prayer.  Please pray for me, Meranda, Atarah, everyone else involved in this campaign and for all of our families.  This has truly been a grueling process, and the final six months until election day are going to be absolutely crazy.  We are going to need more grace and strength than ever before, because it won’t be easy, but with God all things are possible.

Alert: Mainstream Media Now Promoting “Gun Confiscation Orders” As Solution To Mass Shootings

SHTFplan.com - Sat, 11/11/2017 - 18:19

guns-and-ammo-wikimedia

In what many saw coming a mile away in the aftermath of both the Las Vegas Massacre and the Texas Church mass shooting, liberals in the government, with the help of their mainstream media allies, are now pushing what amounts to plans for gun confiscation, outside of normal law, for Americans across the country.

The new push for gun control from the left comes courtesy of ABC News which recently published a piece promoting the use of an Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) that many believe is nothing more than a thinly veiled confiscation plan that would allow a judge to “issue an ex parte order” for the direct confiscation of an American citizens firearms.

Unbelievably, the order can actually be issued without the firearm owner even being present, which would in turn end with police at the citizens door demanding he hand over his weapons or face violence from the state.

ABC’s Andy Fies, on the other hand, apparently wants Americans to see the orders differently, painting a more friendly picture of the ERPO’s while quoting two different left-wing gun control groups as seemingly unbiased experts on gun violence.

As of now, only Washington, California, Connecticut and most recently Oregon have ERPO laws (while Indiana and Texas have modified risk warrant statutes). Over the past year, however, spurred by a string of mass shootings beginning with the Pulse Nightclub attack that killed 49 in June 2016, legislatures in 19 states and Washington, D.C., have taken up 32 separate ERPO bills for consideration, according to Everytown for Gun Safety, a nonprofit organization that advocates for gun control.

Everytown’s deputy legal director, William Rosen, told ABC News that list will grow. “We expect to see at least as much interest in 2018,” he said.

“There is a growing consensus,” added Lauren Alfred of the gun violence prevention group Sandy Hook Promise, “that this is the first step we should be taking when we are talking about people who are at risk of hurting themselves or others.”

Current laws barring gun ownership are limited. Generally, a person with a long history of mental health issues can still legally buy or possess firearms if they don’t fall into specific statutory categories such as having been adjudicated mentally ill or under a domestic violence restraining order. But, as was the case with Texas church gunman Devin Kelley, even these restrictions may not work if the person’s troubled past is not recorded on a background registry.

With an ERPO, however, if family members or police can show a gun owner to be an imminent danger to themselves or others, they can force the person to surrender their weapon(s).

Keep in mind that Everytown for Gun Safety is a Michael Bloomberg funded, left-wing gun control group that was created as part of a rebranding effort by the billionaire gun grabber after his previous group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, was outed by multiple former members as actually pushing an agenda of full-scale gun confiscation.

The Extreme Risk Protection Orders scheme seems to be nothing more than another attempt at slowly eroding the right of lawful Americans to own firearms.

As AWR Hawkins reported in an April 2017 article about a similar law being pushed in Oregon, “Oregon state Sen. Brian Boquist (R-Dallas) is pushing a confiscation bill that would broaden the number of prohibited gun purchasers as well as require certain individuals to hand over any guns in their possession.”

At the time, gun rights activist and NRA member Keely Hopkins rightfully described the law as an attempt to remove your Second Amendment rights by using a third-party who would need little evidence to declare you unfit to own a firearm. (Imagine a vengeful ex-wife/husband)

“This bill allows for a protective order to remove your Second Amendment rights, not because of a criminal conviction, but based on third-party allegations using an evidentiary standard that falls far below what’s normally required for the removing of fundamental rights.”

It is also important to note that gun control advocates and the mainstream media are using The Las Vegas Massacre, which the authorities are openly lying about (there were at least 7 different shooters) as a pretext to further take away Americans right to bear arms. This is, and has always been, the modus operandi of the power elite.

Video Proof: There Were At Least 7 Different Shooters During The Las Vegas Massacre

The Daily Sheeple - Sat, 11/11/2017 - 14:49

vegas

Over the last month numerous independent researchers have put together a startling amount of evidence that there were multiple shooters during the horrific Las Vegas Massacre, many of them pointing to the plethora of eyewitness reports that confirm this stunning fact.

Amazingly, eyewitnesses have not only reported the existence of multiple shooters near the Route 91 Music Festival, many have also noted that there were shooters at other hotels along the strip, including Hooters, MGM, The Bellagio, and The Delano.

Footage from these hotels (which is included in the video below) also points to attackers striking multiple places throughout the strip.

For their part, law enforcement authorities in both the Las Vegas Police Department and The FBI have actively covered up what actually happened during that fateful night, going out of their way to confuse the timeline and at one point even telling Americans to ignore independent news reports and even video footage that they could see with their own eyes.

We are clearly witnessing a massive coverup of one of the worst mass shootings in American history. At this point one has to wonder if authorities were in on the attack themselves or if they are covering up the fact that a terror group such as ISIS actually hit Las Vegas?

The following video puts together the various eyewitness reports that prove, without a shadow of doubt, that the authorities are lying about Stephen Paddock being the lone gunman who carried out the attack.

While over 40 minutes long, I encourage you to watch the entire report.

Although many facts about the attack remain unclear, it is safe to say that the official story has been officially debunked.

Media Frenzy Over Roy Moore Accusations – Silence on Actual Senator Accused of Hiring Child Prostitutes

The Daily Sheeple - Sat, 11/11/2017 - 14:11

MEDIA-SILENCE-696x366

For the first time since 1981, a U.S. Senator is facing corruption charges for allegedly hiring child prostitutes—and the mainstream media is silent.

Washington, D.C. — Never has the mainstream media bias been more evident than in the last 48 hours, as all three major broadcast networks have given heavy coverage to the allegations made against Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, while the ongoing federal corruption trial of New Jersey Democratic Senator Bob Menendez—who was accused of hiring child prostitutes—has been largely ignored by these same outlets.

Menendez, who has been on trial for 65 days, is charged with taking tens of thousands of dollars in bribes in exchange for political favors. He faces a total of six counts of bribery, three counts of honest services fraud, one count of conspiracy, one count of interstate travel to carry out bribery and one count of making false statements on his congressional financial disclosures to conceal the crimes.

Despite being on trial for over two months, “ABC World News Tonight, CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News haven’t even mentioned the trial once. NBC’s Today also hasn’t covered this trial at all, while ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning have managed to give it one story each (1 minute, 48 seconds for ABC and 22 seconds for CBS),” according to the Media Research Center (MRC).

In fact, in the past 24 hours, the same networks that never once in 65 days mentioned Menendez, and the serious accusations against him – including the allegation of hiring child prostitutes, “spent 24 minutes and 36 seconds on serious allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.”

moore_vs_menendez_chart

According to a report by the Media Research Center:

The three evening news shows each spent about two-and-a-half minutes on the Moore scandal (ABC’s World News Tonight: 2 minutes, 48 seconds; CBS Evening News: 2 minutes, 46 seconds; NBC Nightly News, 2 minutes, 38 seconds). Good Morning America spent the most time on Moore with 7 minutes. CBS This Morning came next with 5 minutes and 22 seconds, while NBC’s Today came in third with 4 minutes, 2 seconds.

To put things into perspective, this is the first time a sitting U.S. Senator has faced a corruption trial since 1981.

Additionally, if Menendez is convicted and forced out of office prior to Jan. 16, 2018, GOP Governor Chris Christie will appoint a replacement—likely flipping a Democratic Senate seat to a Republican one.

The jury has been deliberating Menendez’s fate since Oct. 30.

These facts, along with the salacious details uncovered during the course of the investigation into Menendez, would seemingly be exactly the type of story political pundits in the media salivate over—yet there has largely been silence from the mass media presstitutes.

While the media has a duty to cover the sexual harassment allegations against Alabama Senatorial Candidate Roy Moore, the fact that these same outlets have chosen to give such extremely disparate coverage to Menendez’s trial reeks of liberal media bias.

Regardless of whether a Democrat or a Republican, the media has a duty to share their investigations with the public.

The selective outrage of the mainstream media is unmistakable in the case of these two men and clearly evidenced by the disproportionate coverage given to their alleged indiscretions.

It is inexcusable that these two men, both alleged to have engaged in inappropriate activity with underage parties, are not treated in the same manner by the mainstream media—which speaks volumes as to how the mass media attempts to propagandize Americans into a false sense of reality.

Please share this story to help others clearly see how the media attempts to mold perceptions as to benefit those that largely share their political ideology!

Russia Considers Designating CNN, Voice Of America As Foreign Agents

The Daily Sheeple - Sat, 11/11/2017 - 13:54

cnn-logo

Editors Note: This is interesting when you consider the fact that “news” outlets such as CNN seemingly do work for the globalist establishment which has no allegiance to any one country but absolutely does lobby against the betterment of various countries across the world.. Designating them as foreign agents would not be devoid of truth.

Russia is considering designating CNN, Voice of America and Radio Liberty as foreign agents, now that the U.S. has forced state-run RT to register as a foreign agent.

Russian officials said Friday that they’re thinking of making private and government-run American media entities register as foreign agents, which is exactly what Russia warned it would do if American authorities moved to censure RT, The New York Times reports. Such a move could prevent CNN and other U.S. state-owned media entities from operating or distributing content in certain areas.

RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan signaled her intent to comply Thursday, saying that the state-run company would for now give in to U.S. demands to avoid bank account freezes and disclosures of personal employee information. Simonyan believes the application of the Foreign Agents Registration Act to RT America is discriminatory. The deadline to register is Monday.

“We believe that the demand does not only go against the law, and we will prove it in court – the demand is discriminative, it contradicts both the democracy and freedom of speech principles,” Simonyan said. “It deprives us of fair competition with other international channels, which are not registered as foreign agents.”

Simonyan said that while 400 entities are registered under FARA, not a single one of those entities is a media outlet.

The crackdown on RT has come in response to continued investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The U.S. intelligence community believes RT, formerly known as Russia Today, to be little more than a propaganda outlet. A January report from the Director of National Intelligence stated that RT “contributed to the influence campaign by serving as a platform for Kremlin messaging to Russian and international audiences.”

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova pledged Thursday that Russia will hit back against any actions designed to attack RT.

“If someone starts to fight dirty, perverting the law by using it as a tool to eradicate the TV station, every move aimed against the Russian media outlet would be repaid in kind,” Zakharova said.

It’s unclear whether Russia will follow through on its threat or not.

Judge Roy Moore Political Hit Job: Moore is Tried and Convicted in the Court of Public Opinion

The Daily Sheeple - Sat, 11/11/2017 - 13:44

roy-moore-horizontaljpg-a4abf063a5692ce8

Did Alabama Senate candidate Republican Roy Moore do it or not? Did he do what the woman, Leigh Corfman, accused him of doing some 38 years ago? Is he guilty of sexual misconduct with a minor or not?

Well, I don’t know, and neither does anyone else, save for Moore and Corfman.

But reading Corfman’s account of the events struck me as odd, as did the timing.

The girl says that Moore met her and her mother on a bench outside a courtroom one day in 1979 – a mere 38 years ago.

“He struck up a conversation, Corfman and her mother say, and offered to watch the girl while her mother went inside for a child custody hearing,” writes the Washington Post. “He said, ‘Oh, you don’t want her to go in there and hear all that. I’ll stay out here with her,’ ” says Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71. “I thought, how nice for him to want to take care of my little girl.”

A man that neither of them knows strikes up a conversation with Leigh and her mother outside a courtroom, offers to watch the daughter and the mother thinks nothing of it? I’m sorry, but even in 1979, this seems a little strange, not to mention the detail of what was said almost 40 years later.

The timing of the accusation also strikes me and many others as odd. Why did she choose now to suddenly come forward, just one month before the Senate special election?

Some would say that all the other recent accusations of sexual assault have given her the courage to finally come forward and that this election is just too important to risk on an abuser. The spotlight is shining bright on this Senate race and has garnered much national attention.

But it’s not as if Judge Moore hasn’t been in the national spotlight for years now. He was removed from his position as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, in November 2003 by the Alabama Court of the Judiciary for refusing to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments commissioned by him from the Alabama Judicial Building, despite orders to do so.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know about Roy Moore.

But none of these oddities seem to matter to the press or the Republicans, who specialize in throwing their own overboard at the slightest hint of controversy or even accusation. This seems to be all it takes for them. And as predictable as the rising Sun, Republicans have done just that.

They have cut ties with Moore, including all funding, without him ever getting a chance to even mount a defense. For the political class, it is all and only about the optics. Right and wrong do not exist.

But, as we’ve witnessed lately, a lot of the accusations appear to be true or have a basis in truth. This doesn’t mean they all are. However, you’d never know by the reaction of most.

Even Glenn Beck, who I’ve always thought to be thoughtful and reasonable, said on his nationally broadcast radio program, that he believes Roy Moore did what he did. How dangerous is that? How the crap does he know this? On what is he basing his conclusion?

This, among others, like the knowingly spurious charge by Harry Reid during the 2012 presidential election, sets a very dangerous precedent – a precedent of the Communist model of guilty until proven innocent – a precedent of it’s not the nature of the evidence, but the seriousness of the charge.

Recall that Harry Reid lied about Mitt Romney’s taxes. Reid said he heard that Mitt hadn’t paid his taxes in 10 years. Reid cited no sources, yet it was enough for the press to hound Mitt mercilessly.

After Romney lost to Obama, Reid simply said that it worked – we won.

I want to reiterate that none of us knows who is telling the truth, but this doesn’t matter. If Moore doesn’t pull out of the race, he may lose to the Democrat.

Then we watch to see if “justice” is still pursued by Leigh Corfman, or if the case evaporates as mysteriously as it surfaced.

Then we will know the real truth.

Despite the fact that capitalism has lifted more people out of poverty than any other economic system ever created by man, millennials apparently want socialism or communism instead.

According to a recent study conducted by Victims of Communism Memorial Fund-YouGov, 44 percent of millennials say that they would rather live in a socialist country than a country that embraces free market capitalism, and an additional seven percent say they prefer to live under communism.

This means that more than half of today’s youth would rather live under socialism or communism instead of capitalism, a clear sign that the upcoming generation is becoming increasingly detached from America’s roots.

As if this wasn’t bad enough, 23 percent of Americans between the ages of 21 and 29 consider Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin to be a “hero,” 26 percent believe Vladimir Lenin was a hero, and 23 percent feel that Kim Jong Un of North Korea is a hero. Additionally, “Millennials also named Karl Marx (18 percent), Che Guevara (26 percent), Vladimir Lenin (17 percent), Mao Zedong (16 percent), and Nicolas Maduro (12 percent) as a personal hero, hero for their country, or hero to the world.”

In a press release, Victims of Communism executive director Marion Smith explained what the results of the survey mean for American society.

“Millennials are increasingly turning away from capitalism and toward socialism and even communism as a viable alternative,” Smith said. “This troubling turn highlights widespread historical illiteracy in American society regarding socialism and the systemic failure of our education system to teach students about the genocide, destruction, and misery caused by communism since the Bolshevik Revolution one hundred years ago.” (Related: The mainstream media won’t cover the failing socialist nightmare in Venezuela because it exposes the faults of socialism.)

Interestingly enough, however, the majority of young people who participated in this survey were unable to define socialism and communism, and roughly 80 percent didn’t know how many lives were lost under communist regimes. (Related: This video shows millennials supporting socialism even if it causes starvation.)

On the surface, it may seem silly that millennials would support something that they don’t even understand, but when you consider how much indoctrination and political brainwashing goes on inside of the classroom, everything suddenly starts to make sense.

Last month, a professor at California State University-Long Beach declared at a school event that America “was founded on white supremacy and racism” and “built on a racist capitalist system meant to weaken the minority.”

The historical illiterate in question, sociology professor Steven Osuna, asked students at the event whether or not they were able to save money, to which many of them shouted back “no!” Osuna then told the students that their inability to save money was due to the “racist, capitalist system” that our country was supposedly founded upon, “and as a result,” he said to the crowd, “you have all these people making a ton of money off y’all’s backs.”

In addition to this anti-capitalism message that more and more schools across the country are beginning to promote, students are simultaneously being taught to fight for equality and “fairness for all,” which they automatically associate with socialism, communism and the redistribution of wealth. America’s education system really has become the perfect breeding ground for young socialists and communists.

What’s so ironic about all of this is the fact that young people are some of the biggest beneficiaries of capitalism in the entire country. They wake up each morning and turn off the alarm that they set on their Apple iPhone, grab lunch at the nearest fast food restaurant, study for school using their Microsoft laptop, and then maybe even go to the mall with a group of friends. They benefit from capitalism each and every day, and yet sadly, they want to do away with it.

Who Needs The Russians When You Have Growing Allegations Of The Media Trying To Rig The Alabama Elections?

The Daily Sheeple - Sat, 11/11/2017 - 12:31

WASHINGTON-POST

As we have mentioned before in writings here at Viral Liberty, to understand liberals and progressives all one has to do is realize that their entire foundation is built on projection.  And by this we mean that when they call someone a racist, sexist, or bigot, all they are doing is trying to project their own guilt and actions onto someone else.

Ie… the recent revelations of Hollywood celebrities being busted for sexual harassment and pedophilia after accusing others of this for years.

Yet with this being said, projection is not just limited to individuals.  In fact ever since Donald Trump won the Presidential election last November, liberals, the media, and government officials have been trying to project their own failed election rigging schemes on Vladimir Putin and Russia in order to mask the fact that they were the ones who committed the fraud of election tampering.

CNN asked Senator Elizabeth Warren if Mrs Clinton’s contest against Democratic rival Bernie Sanders was rigged, and she said: “Yes.”

The ongoing WikiLeaks dump of a top Hillary Clinton lieutenant’s emails is shining a light on the cozy and often improper relationship key members of the press had with the Democratic presidential nominee’s campaign.

Advance notice of debate questions, the promise of positive coverage, and even editorial control over stories are among the eyebrow-raising revelations in emails to and from campaign chairman John Podesta.

“We have had her tee up stories for us before and have never been disappointed,” a January 2015 memo said of former Politico and current New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman. – Fox News

But despite the fact that election tampering by liberals and the media is now wide open and in the public, there appears now to be another attempted fraud scheme that is being pushed by these same actors to try to character assassinate candidate Roy Moore just before the Alabama elections are run to replace the seat formerly held by Jeff Sessions.

And ironically it involves the same scheme they tried with Donald Trump when they pushed out more than a dozen women who ‘suddenly’ claimed the President sexually harassed them decades ago.

However this time it appears that an alleged reporter from the Washington Post may have been caught in the act of trying to bribe a woman into lying about sexual harassment.

A Navy veteran who served 22 years for his country and then served in the Secret Service claims a family friend who lives in Alabama told his wife that a Washington Post reporter “named Beth” approached her and offered her THOUSANDS to accuse Judge Roy Moore of inappropriate sexual advances. – Gateway Pundit

When you realize that the accusations against Judge Roy Moore of his having served alcohol to a number of minors when he was allegedly out on a date with them, and that he also allegedly inflicted ‘sexual misconduct’ on a 14 year old some 40 years ago are occurring just before a critical run-off election despite the fact that he has been a high profile public figure for decades, then it is more than obvious that the media is once again trying to tamper with the minds of voters since it is impossible to prove or collaborate these accusations with any real evidence of substance.

In the end the American people voted in Donald Trump despite having nearly every major institution working hard to rig the vote against him.  And since the FBI and Department of Justice are proving to have been culpable as well with this election tampering, it is unlikely that any media agency, including the Washington Post, will be held liable for potentially rigging another election should allegations of trying to bribe an accuser come out to be true.

Roy Moore responds to latest sexual abuse allegations in scathing statement targeting ‘fake news’ media

The Blaze - Sat, 11/11/2017 - 11:40

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) defended himself Saturday during a press conference where he bashed the allegations against him.

What did he say?

In a Veterans Day speech in Alabama, Moore called the allegations, which came to light in a Washington Post story on Thursday, “fake news,” said they were meant to derail his election campaign and claimed they were seeded by Democrats.

“These attacks involve a minor and they are completely false and untrue about something that happened nearly 40 years ago,” he said, adding that the attacks have been extremely hurtful to him and his family.

Moore said the allegations contradict his entire career as a lawyer and judge.

‘Why now?’

In his speech, Moore had one question on his mind: why now? Why did it take decades for the allegations to surface, Moore questioned.

Why now? The Democrats and the Republican establishment know the importance of this election. In fact, most people in America know the importance of this election. They see it as a prelude to the elections coming in 2018. It may very well determine the future of our country. My opponent is 11 points behind. That came out just days before this article came out. They are desperate.

This article is a prime example of fake news, an attempt to divert attention from the true issues which affect our country, like health care, military readiness, tax reform, immigration and national debt. We do not intend to let the Democrats or the established Republicans or anybody else behind this story stop this campaign. There are investigations going on. In the next few days there will be revelations about the motivations and the content of this article. They will be brought to the public. We fully expect the people of Alabama to see through this charade and to vote in the primary coming up.

Moore said he doesn’t expect the stories against him to stop because the Washington Post has an “agenda” against him.

How did Moore end the statement?

He finished by urging his supporters to ponder one question.

He said: “Everybody in this room should ask themselves: isn’t it strange that after 40 years of constant investigation, people have waited to four weeks prior to the general election to bring their complaints?”

“That’s not a coincidence,” Moore said. “It’s an intentional act to stop the campaign.”

This is how sexual misconduct allegations are impacting Roy Moore’s Republican voter base

The Blaze - Sat, 11/11/2017 - 11:00

Despite allegations of sexual misconduct against a 14-year-old girl in an incident which reportedly occurred in 1979, supporters of Roy Moore are standing by their candidate.

What are people saying?

Pastor Jerome Cox of the Greenwood Baptist Church in Prattville, Ala. told NBC News on Friday that despite accusations, Moore has done a great amount of good for the state.

“I don’t know whether he did those things,” Cox said. “It’s not for me to say, or judge, whether he did those things. What I do know is that he’s done a lot of good for the state of Alabama. He’s stood by his convictions.”

Cox qualified, “I voted for him in the primary, in the runoff and I’ll be voting for him again on Dec. 12.”

Tony Emfinger, a Prattville barback, told the news organization that he wondered why the accuser waited several decades to air her grievances against Moore.

“Why would they wait until now to come forward with this unless someone put them up to it?” he asked.

NBC News reported that Emfinger used “mostly four-letter words” when referring to the allegations against Moore, and lauded Moore’s convictions in standing for that in which he believes.

Charles Bodenheimer, a garbage truck driver from nearby Tallassee, echoed Emfinger’s sentiments.

“Not until this race did the media go digging around on him,” Bodenheimer said. “If [the allegations] are true, then why did [the women] wait so long to say anything?”

Bodenheimer’s friend, Derek Alexander — a resident of Jacksonville, Ala. — agreed.

“We’ve all made mistakes in the past, we all have sins,” Alexander explained. “He should stay in, and he will stay in. No charges will be brought.”

He added, “I’ve got his back.”

Ricky Ousley told NBC that he feels Moore is going to win on Dec. 12.

“I’m sure of it,” Ousley said. “The media tries to control everything but won’t win this time. This whole thing done nothing but lit up Alabamans.”

Another local man, who declined to be identified, told NBC, “This is Republican town, man. [Moore] could have killed Obama, and we wouldn’t care.”
