Socialism

Is Kamala Harris Eligible To Be President?

The argument against Ted Cruz being a "natural born" citizen went something like this: To be a “natural born” citizen, one must be born within the territory of the United States, to two citizen parents. Applying the same historical and legal arguments used against Senator Cruz to Kamala Harris it appears she is not a “natural born” citizen, rather she is more like America’s most high profile and least grateful anchor baby.

Sugarcoating Socialism

After Bernie’s opening it seemed like everyone in the Democratic debate, except Governor Hickenlooper, started with “I agree with Bernie” or some variation thereof. It seems that there is no problem, from income inequality, to the alleged climate crisis, to war, to unwanted pregnancy that socialism can’t cure.

The Secret To A Trump Landslide

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
There’s no guarantee that just because the Democrats set themselves on fire on national TV Trump is going to walk away with an easy 2020 victory. The real secret to creating a Donald Trump landslide in 2020 is for conservatives to take the lead in nationalizing the 2019-2020 elections by BRANDING the Democrats using targeted direct marketing through new and alternative media, especially in battle ground states and key congressional districts.

Dems’ Agenda: Kill Jobs, Pander to Freeloaders

Betsy McCaughey, The American Spectator

These Democratic candidates don’t believe jobs are the way to end poverty. For them, “work” is a four-letter word. Their approach is to take money from working stiffs and give it to slackers. Far from promoting work, the Dems running for president don’t hesitate to throw millions of Americans out of work. The Dems’ major policy proposals, Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, rejoining the Paris Climate Accord, open borders for illegals, and tax hikes on corporations, are all job killers. In his final Sunday sermon in 1968, King explained that a person who “doesn’t have a job” has “neither life nor liberty.” Message to the 2020 candidates: jobs, not handouts, are the remedy for poverty.

The Problem With Ocasio-Cortez’s Shameful Ignorance Of History

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

Ocasio-Cortez, whose historical obliviousness leads her to believe we’re living in an economic and racial dystopia, says she is speaking to those who “are concerned enough with humanity to say that ‘Never Again’ means something and…that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the Home of the Free.” It’s indeed strange to hear a leftist who champions anti-Israel causes and anti-Semitic politicians using this phrase, since the Jewish state is the most successful and enduring manifestation of Never Again. Yet when we need our media to ask her to explain her profoundly childish and destructive statements, they are nowhere to be found.

America’s First Third-World State

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Perhaps if former governor Jerry Brown knew that he would one day retire to Delano and drive the 99 daily, rather than to Grass Valley, with several state pensions in his bank account, or if Dianne Feinstein dwelled in an East Palo Alto or Redwood City residence rather than in Pacific Heights, or if all the Pelosi grandchildren had to attend state public schools, then the architects of 21st-century California might have had to live with the consequences of their own dreams and been less eager to inflict their nightmares on the other 40 million Californians. But then again, such a radical divergence between a few insider elites and a massive underclass, with little in between, is perhaps what best defines “Third World.”

Impossible dreaming with the impossible Bernie

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Hope springs stubbornly eternal. Bernie made a speech the other day at George Washington University and gave a full-throated endorsement of socialism as the cure for what doesn’t ail America. Eggheads, college kids and the little old ladies who pass out pamphlets at meetings of the Ethical Culture Society went all a-tingly when they heard that Bernie had gone all-out for what makes Venezuela and North Korea such tourist hotspots. Just as Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal was the answer to suffering and abuse by corporations then, so “democratic socialism” is the answer now. Some of Bernie’s Democratic opponents, who recognize folly when they see it, are rushing to get away from him, lest they become collateral damage.

CAP Leaders: Higher Education Reauthorization Must Treat All Schools & Students Equally

With college campuses becoming increasingly intolerant to ideas and debate, it is more important than ever that federal policy allow diversity of views to flourish. As the HEA moves forward, conservatives urge congressional Republicans to stand firm on principles of equal treatment and fairness for all students, and all schools.

Socialist Promises

Walter Williams, CNS News

Socialism promises a utopia that sounds good, but those promises are never realized. It most often results in massive human suffering. Capitalism fails miserably when compared with a heaven or utopia promised by socialism. But any earthly system is going to come up short in such a comparison. It turns out that for the common man capitalism, with all of its alleged shortcomings, is superior to any system yet devised to deal with his everyday needs and desires. By most any measure of human well-being, people who live in countries toward the capitalistic end of the economic spectrum are far better off than their fellow men who live in countries toward the socialist end.

GOP Setting Itself Up For Failure… Again

Republicans didn’t lose the House and a number of winnable Senate races in 2018 because they didn’t know how to use smartphone apps to run a precinct operation. They lost because they failed to produce on the Trump agenda and failed to brand the Democrats as dangerous anti-constitutional socialists.

Will 2020 Be the Beginning of a Socialist America?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

To achieve Bernie Sanders' Socialist America, the filibuster would have to be abolished, easily done, and the Constitution altered, requiring the support of three-fourths of the states, not so easy. Yet, as of today, the unannounced front-runner Joe Biden, who is taking fire from many quarters, appears to be the last man standing between Sanders Socialism and the Democratic nomination. Should Joe falter and fall, Trump would be the nation's last line of defense against the coming of a Socialist America. For never-Trump conservatives, the day of reckoning may be just ahead.

New Poll: America Is Morally Divided Over Socialism

Timothy Daughtry, Townhall

People are free to believe the sweet-sounding rhetoric of socialism if they want, but the facts are clear.  Looking at volumes of evidence from across the world, economists such as Thomas Sowell have repeatedly documented that socialism is associated with serious reductions in productivity, shortages in goods and services, and a lower standard of living, particularly for the poor.  And free enterprise results in greater productivity and higher standards of living wherever it is implemented, and even those in the lower economic strata live better under free enterprise than under socialism.

Socialized Medicine: Saving Money By Killing Grandma

The Economic Report of the President has several interesting sections on the effects of socialist policies and one of the most interesting is its examination of socialist healthcare plans, such as the Socialist Democrats’ “Medicare for All” (M4A) legislation, which would achieve its purported savings by cutting off life extending healthcare to older Americans.

Bernie Brings In $18.2 Million Driving Democrats Further Left

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders is leading the Democrat presidential field in fundraising and grassroots organizing and pushing the Democrats further Left. Having booked $18.2 million in the first quarter of 2019, Sanders is almost guaranteed to take his Socialist campaign to every Democrat primary and debate.

Trump To Lead Fight Against Socialism

In conversation with White House staff it has been made clear that the President’s remarks at CPAC about socialism were not just an example of preaching to the choir and that the administration considers the Democrats’ move to the Far Left to be a serious challenge that was observed coming a long way off and would be confronted at every opportunity.

Students Love The “Green New Deal” Until They Hear What’s In It

The problem for Democrats is now obvious: Having created their army of brainwashed little climate change monsters, the have to keep moving Left to satisfy their appetite for bigger government, more regulations and more laws and more limits on what we can do, more restrictions on what we can think and say and become, and the “Green New Deal” is just the start.

Socialism: An Old Dogma With No New Tricks

David Catron, The American Spectator

Market forces can’t be evaded by socialism any more than the laws of physics can be eluded by a perpetual motion machine. There is no evidence that any attempt to do so has ever succeeded in either case. The belief that it is possible to successfully replace capitalism with socialism requires blind faith that can’t be justified by experience or theory. It is merely leftist dogma, and it has failed to learn any new tricks in the last two centuries. A trip to Venezuela will confirm this. By all means, share your findings when you return… if you live.

It’s Time For Conservatives To Choose: Fight Back Or Surrender

Derek Hunter, Townhall

Conservatives never return the favor of dragging old quotes or actions into the light, they almost uniformly refuse to call for boycotts. They prefer to “take the high road.” What good is the high road if it leads to defeat? Moral victories are just a polite way to justify losing. Liberals collect scalps, conservatives collect moral victories. This isn’t a battle for local dog catcher, it’s a fight for the future of the country; it’s time for the right to fight back the way they’re being attacked.

Trump's Most Daunting Task: Educating on Socialism

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Our youth has suffered from a form of child abuse by their teachers and the media. They have been told, implicitly and explicitly, from earliest childhood that socialism is the preferable system because of "fairness." The next election is likely to be some form of socialism versus capitalism, no matter who the Democrats nominate. If Bernie Sanders, it will be front and center, but it won't be far away with other candidates. Every election is said to be the most consequential. This one really is. It's about a lot more than the individuals running.
