Nothing could be more blatantly false…

The love Bernie Sanders shows for all things “socialism” is turning off Democrats in droves. At the same time, the Vermont senator continues to outclass fellow 2020 presidential hopefuls in poll after poll, caucus after caucus.

At the end of the day, the American people know exactly who this guy is and what he stands for. And none of it is good for the United States. From Daily Caller:

Democratic 2020 candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders in 2011 promoted an editorial arguing that “the American dream is more apt to be realized” in Venezuela than in the U.S.

Sanders’s Senate office posted the editorial, which local Vermont newspaper the Valley News published, on his Senate website under the “Must Reads” section.

“These days, the American dream is more apt to be realized in South America, in places such as Ecuador, Venezuela and Argentina, where incomes are actually more equal today than they are in the land of Horatio Alger,” the editorial stated. “Who’s the banana republic now?”

Conservatives have been using Venezuela as a prime example for why socialism is an awful system of economics ever since the country collapsed, videos and photographs of people waiting in line for food and other basic necessities being posted to try and back up that very same point.

However, that just didn’t seem to convince the vast majority of folks on the left who think more government and wealth redistribution will somehow magically solve all of our problems.

Perhaps the latest study from the United Nations, which discovered that 1 in 3 Venezuelans are facing hunger, will managed to do the trick?

From The Washington Examiner:

One-third of Venezuelans were found to be moderately or severely food insecure by researchers from the World Food Programme, a project established by the U.N. The World Food Programme describes food insecurity as the inability to meet basic dietary needs.

A Venezuelan rights advocate, Carolina Fernandez, recently stated that the children in the country are possibly going to experience growth challenges to due to the fact that many of them are malnourished.

“We’re talking about children who are going to have long-term problems because they’re not eating adequately,” Fernandez said.

Venezuela has been through the ringer over the last few years. Hyperinflation completely destroyed the Venezuelan bolivar and made it utterly worthless. The country’s leader, Nicolas Maduro, who is largely responsible for the current crisis the country has been experiencing, is refusing to give up power, despite pressure from nations around the world.

Maduro invited the U.N. into the country to conduct the food security study, who had previously refused to allow researchers to come into the country in years gone by.

Manhunt Ensues After Possible Ex-Cop Commits Massacre in Texas

Authorities are telling residents to shelter in place.

The citizens of Austin, Texas are on high alert Sunday afternoon after a massacre left at least three people dead with the suspect still at large as of this writing. Law enforcement has identified the suspected killer, and are scouring the city looking for clues. A massive multi-agency manhunt including the FBI and U.S. Marshals is underway in Austin for an armed suspect wanted for killing at least three people near an apartment complex late Sunday morning. Austin police said that the three lifeless bodies were all adults, including two Hispanic females, and one Black male. They said they believe the suspect is Stephen Nicholas Broderick, who is possibly a former law enforcement officer charged with sexual assault of a child last summer. Austin’s KXAN, citing an arrest affidavit, reported last June that the Travis County Sheriff’s Office detective was on administrative leave following an arrest for allegations of sexual assault. Police had some very specific ideas of what could come next in the case. The Austin Police Department said the suspect was still at large as of approximately 2:30 p.m. local time and is considered armed and dangerous. Police have urged everyone nearby to shelter in place and report suspicious activity. “We are concerned he might possibly take a hostage and be himself sheltered somewhere waiting for us to leave,” Interim Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon said during a news conference Sunday afternoon. Police said that the victims were known to Broderick, but did not elaborate any further.

Biden Team Sends Stern Threat to Russia Over Navalny’s Health

This is just the latest escalation in the war of words between these two nations.

Published

While every nation on this planet likely harbors some sort of terrible secret, or some evil underpinnings, no one plays the role of international bad guy quite like Russia does. The enormous nation has no real qualms about the world knowing its business, and Vladimir Putin has held onto power for as long as he as by doing the bare minimum required to keep him from being called a dictator. Beyond that, the nation appears fond of strongman-shenanigans like poisoning and jailing dissident journalists like Alexi Navalny, who is on death’s door in a Russian prison camp. If he dies, US President Joe Biden says that the Kremlin will pay the price. President Joe Biden’s national security adviser warned Sunday that there will be repercussions for Russia if Putin critic Alexei Navalny dies, amid reports that his health is rapidly deteriorating in prison. “We have communicated to the Russian government that what happens to Mr. Navalny in their custody is their responsibility and they will be held accountable by the international community,” Jake Sullivan said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Biden has had a fairly poor relationship with Russia doing his first few months in office, with the two nations issuing not-so-subtle statements and threats in each others’ direction.
