Bad Optics: Socialist Sanders Poses By Empty Shelvesby Shifra on October 29, 2019
Let’s see: Socialist Bernie Sanders…empty grocery shelves…Venezuela…Perfect photo! Via Daily Caller. In a visit to Detroit on Sunday, where Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib endorsed his presidential candidacy, Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders talked to reporters in front of some empty store shelves. Sanders was at the Brightmoor Food Pantry in Detroit to demonstrate that the store is out of the bottled water that some residents are forced to buy because the city has shut off their water services for not paying the bill, the Detroit Free Press reported Sunday. “Here in this campaign, we hear the word socialism a lot. Well, what this is a perfect example of is socialism for billionaires, massive amounts of subsidies and tax breaks,”...
Leftists Love To Tout Sweden As ‘Utopia,’ But Omit Its Darker Sideby Shifra on October 6, 2019
Did you know, as the following report indicates, that Sweden carried out forced sterilization on some of its citizens until 1976? And that government agents made weekly inspections of government-owned housing to ensure that windows were opened at certain times of the day, that no one wore shoes inside, and to check if everyone bathed, at least once a week? Bernie Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez and their fellow leftists point to Sweden as a model for transforming the U.S. into a ‘Utopia.’ But a new book by Swedish author Elisabeth Asbrink, “Made in Sweden,” highlights the darker side of the Swedish welfare state. Via NY Post. When Elisabeth Asbrink invites you to visit her in Stockholm, Sweden, be sure to wear your...
Sanders: ‘Billionaires Shouldn’t Exist,’ Plans Confiscating Half Their Wealthby Shifra on September 24, 2019
Bernie Sanders’ net worth is over a million dollars, so maybe ‘millionaires shouldn’t exist’ and we should confiscate half his assets? I hear his $600,000 beach house is lovely this time of year. Via Business Insider. Sen. Bernie Sanders rolled out a plan to tax the wealth of the nation’s ultra-rich on Tuesday, going further than his Democratic primary rival Sen. Elizabeth Warren with his proposal that could greatly erode the fortunes of billionaires with steep taxes. Sander’s wealth tax is more aggressive than Warren’s given its wider scope and scale. It would impact more households, levy a higher marginal tax rate, and ultimately bring in more money for government coffers to help pay for some of his ambitious proposals...

Hasbro ‘Monopoly: Socialism’ Game Upsets Socialistsby Shifra on August 23, 2019
Further proof that Libs/Leftists/Progs/Socialists have no sense of humor. Via Washington Examiner. Monopoly, sort of like a socialist society, wants your money. The Hasbro game now has a socialism edition, and for people who can laugh at its tongue-in-cheek tagline, “winning is for capitalists,” it could be a great addition to board game night. Be warned, though, that if you do choose to enlighten your guests about the potential perils of socialism, including universal healthcare and no-tip vegan restaurants, you might not want to invite this guy…. I bought a copy of Hasbro's mean-spirited and woefully ill-informed "MONOPOLY: SOCIALISM" board game so you don't have to – a thread 1/ pic.twitter.com/YhZWDjkAnj — Nick Kapur (@nick_kapur) August 21, 2019 ….According to...
No, WaPo, Abraham Lincoln Was Not ‘Into’ Karl Marx, Was Not A Socialistby Shifra on August 8, 2019
This Washington Post article is absurd and laughable. You know who was into Karl Marx? No, not AOC. Abraham Lincoln. https://t.co/p7uG2JtEWx — The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) July 27, 2019 But it caught the eye of the Dayton mass-murderer, who took it seriously. HT Heavy. Connor Betts, the Dayton, Ohio mass shooter, was a self-described “leftist,” who wrote that he would happily vote for Democrat Elizabeth Warren, praised Satan, was upset about the 2016 presidential election results, and added, “I want socialism, and i’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding.”…. Via Federalist. The Washington Post has seen better days. The newspaper that once brought us Watergate published an article last week titled “You know who was...
Bernie Sanders: I Need To Do A Better Job Explaining Socialismby Shifra on March 20, 2019
Memo to Bernie: Keep praising those bread lines and food rationing. Yep, that’ll work 🙂 Via Breitbart. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is running again to be president of the United States, and although he lost the Democratic nomination in 2016, he hopes to earn the mantle this cycle and bring his brand of socialism to power. One thing he hopes to do better on the road to the White House is to do a “better job” explaining socialism. “I think what we have to do, and I will be doing it, is to do a better job maybe in explaining what we mean by socialism — democratic socialism,” Sanders told National Public Radio’s (NPR) Morning Edition on Monday. “Obviously, my...
How Maduro Used Doctors to Coerce Venezuela Votersby Shifra on March 18, 2019
While the Democrats are falling over themselves, rushing to the left, promising “free healthcare for everyone,” this is a terrifying story about what can happen when the government controls everyone’s medical care. Via NYT. Yansnier Arias knew it was wrong. It violated the Constitution, not to mention the oath he took as a doctor in Cuba. He had been sent to Venezuela by the Cuban government, one of thousands of doctors deployed to shore up ties between the two allies and alleviate Venezuela’s collapsing medical system. But with President Nicolás Maduro’s re-election on the line, not everyone was allowed to be treated, Dr. Arias said. A 65-year-old patient with heart failure entered his clinic — and urgently needed oxygen, he...
Bernie Sanders Wants To ‘Stop Walmart’ Because… Socialism!by Shifra on November 19, 2018
Under President Trump, unemployment is at record lows, consumer confidence is at an 18-year high. In short, the economy is booming. One would think Bernie Sanders might want to take a step back and try to understand that cutting taxes and deregulating the economy helped usher in the “Trump boom.” Ol’ Bern reminds me of the definition my father gave me when, at age ten, I asked him what the word “socialist” meant. He told me that a socialist is a stupid person who thinks he is smarter than everyone else. Via IBD. Socialism: Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self-declared socialist who’s never held a steady job outside government, thinks he knows better than CEOs how to run a business. And...
Bernie Sanders Says Media Focus Too Much On ‘Socialism,’ Then Touts… Socialismby Shifra on August 17, 2018
And he thinks there is “something fundamentally immoral and wrong” about a nation where there are some very wealthy people. Because…redistribution of wealth! However, since the median income of the typical Vermont family is approximately $51,000, and Bernie made $1.7M on his socialist revolution books, and he owns three homes, will there be some sort of redistribution of his wealth? Via Free Beacon. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) complained Wednesday the media “makes a bigger deal” than it should about the modern debate between socialism and capitalism. Appearing on “CBS This Morning” following his Democratic primary victory in Vermont, Sanders was asked by co-host John Dickerson about the appeal of democratic socialism to younger party members. Young democratic socialists like...
Hawaiian Socialist Endorsed by Ocasio-Cortez Loses Primaryby Shifra on August 12, 2018
This is the fourth candidate endorsed by Socialist “star” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to lose a primary. SAD! 🙂 Here she is in Hawaii, endorsing Congressional candidate Kaniela Ing but soooo excited to pepper the crowd with her old, tired clichés, and to bash “American colonialism,” that she forgot to introduce him to the crowd: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got so excited at the end of her speech at the #fightforaloha rally that she almost forgot to introduce Kaniela Ing pic.twitter.com/D0sHb4b99w — Michelle Broder Van Dyke (@MBVD) August 10, 2018 Via American Mirror. Is an endorsement smooch from the socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez actually a kiss of electoral death?…. It turns out Cortez’s support did nothing for his chances, and in fact, it may have...
Oops: Socialist ‘Star’ Ocasio-Cortez Thinks NJ Sen. Menendez Is From… Florida?by Shifra on August 8, 2018
This is the new voice of the Democrat Party. Watch the video…and let that sink in. Via Free Beacon. Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday knocked a couple key members of her own party, Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) and Bob Menendez (N.J.), saying they don’t represent the “working-class champion.” She also wrongly identified Menendez as being from Florida before being corrected by her interviewer. The self-described democratic socialist took aim at Manchin and Menendez during an appearance on the podcast “Pod Save America,” which is hosted by former Obama administration staff members…. Since Ocasio-Cortez defeated incumbent Rep. Joseph Crowley (N.Y.) in the Democratic primary for New York’s 14th Congressional District, she has become a thorn in the paw of...
Venezuela Inflation On Track To Hit 1,000,000% By End of Yearby Shifra on July 25, 2018
Wow, inflation at one million percent! Yes, kids, isn’t Socialism fun? As the “Sage of the Bronx” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tells it, Socialism is all about “healthcare, housing and education.” Strange, though, she does not mention food…because in Socialist Venezuela, a 2016 study found that 15% of Venezuelans are eating from the trash, while others are killing flamingos and anteaters for food. But this political cartoon from A.F. Branco sums it up best: Via CBC. Venezuela’s inflation rate is already at least 46,000 per cent, but things are about to get much worse. Yesterday, the International Monetary Fund predicted that the country’s real GDP will drop about 18 per cent this year — the third straight year the economy will contract...
Venezuela Detains Oppo Leaders at Gunpoint, Remains on UN Human Rights Councilby Shifra on August 2, 2017
Venezuela is running out of food, and it is reported that 75% of population lost 19 pounds amid the crisis. Leave it to the useful idiots who praise socialism, though: They will probably report this as a wonderful step the Venezuelan government is taking to reduce obesity. But which is more laughable, that Venezuela is on the Human Rights Council, or the fact that Saudi Arabia is also a member? Via CNS News. The United Nations’ secretary-general and top human rights official on Tuesday both expressed concern about the political crisis in Venezuela, but neither statement addressed the fact that the Nicolas Maduro regime is a member of the U.N.’s top human rights body. Amid calls for the Human Rights...
Europe Keeps Sending Welfare Payments To ISIS Terroristsby Tammy on February 23, 2017
Denmark says the law makes it impossible for them to cut “sickness” and “disability” payments to terrorists fighting in Syria. Welcome to another catastrophe handed to Europe and Scandinavia by the left. Via USA Today. Governments across Europe have accidentally paid taxpayer-funded welfare benefits such as unemployment funds, disability pensions and housing allowances to Islamic State militants who have used the money to wage war in Iraq and Syria, authorities and terrorism experts say. Danish officials said this week that 29 citizens were given $100,000 in public pension benefits because they were considered too ill or disabled to work, and they then fled to Syria to fight for the radical group. Denmark has one of the world’s most generous social-welfare systems, which provides eligible unemployed people...
