Liberal Falsehoods Will Lead to Dire Consequences [Opinion]

Spread it like wildfire…

Published

on

I am extremely disturbed by three massive lies embraced by Democratic presidential candidates and supported by the media: 


1. “Mass incarceration”

2. “The cancer of inequality” 

3. “Government can fix everything”

The liberal media has spread the notion that America suffers from “mass incarceration,” especially of “people of color” (another liberal term). But look at the facts. What we really suffer from is an epidemic of crime. The problem is crime; the jail time is simply the result. Keeping criminals in jail has cut the crime rate in half. The liberals want to turn them loose on the streets. And whose fault is it that people of color are overrepresented in our prisons? Blacks commit ten times the number of violent crimes as whites and Hispanics combined. The blame lies with the criminals, not the victims.

The Leftist canard that racist police and the justice system deliberately discriminate against African-Americans is not supported by the facts. In 2020, it is ridiculous to suggest that white police are gunning for blacks. “The fault lies primarily with the black criminals,” says political commentator Dennis Prager, “not with a racist society.” The bulk of responsibility, agreed former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, is on African-Americans who “commit murder eight times more per capita than any other group in our society.” Ignoring the obvious connection between black criminality and black incarceration, the Left continues to point a finger at the police. “Numerical disparities result from differences of offending,” said black talk show host Larry Elder, “not because of racism.”

Heather Mac Donald, author of The War on Cops, contends that the bottom line question is: Should African-Americans be held responsible for their own behavior—including criminal behavior, or are they victims of a racist society? Mac Donald concludes that blacks cannot shirk responsibility for their own behavior. The notion that African-Americans are victims of systemic racism may have been true prior to the 1960s, but this is a half-century after the Civil Rights Movement. “White institutional racism has disappeared from our society,” says Scott Greer in No Campus for White Men. “Black Americans now have every opportunity that white Americans have long enjoyed.” During an interview with Mark Levin on Fox TV, African-American author Shelby Steele agreed. “The oppression of black Americans is over with,” he said.

The mass incarceration idea is specious logic and it is dishonest. Got that? DISHONEST!

Now on to the equality issue. Democrats have asserted that all our problems are caused by “the cancer of inequality.” This is nothing less than the old race card in new form. In reality, there is never equality. No two people have the same fingerprint. No two snowflakes are identical. Nature did that, not the Republicans. No system can create or legislate equality. Even Soviet Russia had an official class that enjoyed special privileges. In the capitalist system, at least we have equality of opportunity. If you work hard, you have a shot at the “American Dream.”

Obama scoffed at the “American Dream” idea. He said that if you are successful, “You didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” The liberals are not satisfied with equality of opportunity—they want equality of outcome. They assert that the American Dream is an entitlement. You don’t have to work for it, it is guaranteed. If you have not achieved the dream, the liberals insist, you must be the victim of the cancer of inequality.

In reality, equality of outcome can never be accomplished without control by a coercive centralized authority. “A free society will not be one of equality,” said James Peron, author of Exploding Population Myths. “Even if we were able to distribute all wealth equally, once the heavy hand of centralized control was removed, inequality would immediately result. The destruction of freedom is the only method for implementing equality of results.”

Liberals are not for equality of opportunity, they want equality of outcome and that is impossible. It is also dishonest. Got it? DISHONEST!

Finally, Bernie Sanders’ idea that big government can fix everything, including supplying jobs, is absurd. Everything government touches turns to crap. We have a really good—not perfect—system that has created a wonderful standard of living for most Americans. If you work hard, you can make a decent living. But if you refuse to take responsibility for yourself, you are making a choice that will lead to dire consequences. As we allow the government to be responsible for more and more of our needs, we relinquish more and more of our independence. Sanders’ preferred alternative to the current system is socialism, where the government takes care of everything. Wherever it has been tried, socialism has resulted in totalitarianism. “While democracy seeks equality in liberty,” wrote Alexis de Toqueville, “socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.”

Capitalism means “a competitive system based on free disposal over private property,” said F.A. Hayek. “Only within this system is democracy possible. Where it becomes dominated by a collectivist creed, democracy will inevitably destroy itself.” Poverty and crime are not the children of capitalism, they are the result of personal decisions. The liberals want to dismantle a system that functions in order to create a nanny state. It isn’t working in Europe and it won’t work here. It is dishonest. Got it? DISHONEST!

These are lies, and do not deserve the attention they are getting from a gullible public. People have ceased to think for themselves. They don’t object to being manipulated by opportunists like Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And that is not dishonest, it is dangerous. Got it? DANGEROUS! Wake up!!!

MARK MEADOWS: Trump Tested Positive for COVID Ahead of Debate with Biden

A negative test soon followed.

Published

on

Then-President Trump’s bout with COVID-19 was one of the more harrowing moments of his time in the Oval Office, and a new memoir by Mark Meadows has added a new twist to the tale.

The entire episode had the nation on the edge of its seat, concerned that the sitting President, (a septuagenarian considered to be “high risk”), may fall quite ill from the virus.  Of course, being the leader of the free world has its benefits, and Donald Trump received state-of-the-art care during his brief stint in the hospital – even going so far as to take a lap around the medical center to wave to his supporters.

But now, The Don’s former chief of staff has revealed that the former Commander in Chief actually tested positive for the virus before a debate with Joe Biden – with a negative result to follow.

Donald Trump tested positive for Covid-19 three days before his first debate against Joe Biden, the former president’s fourth and last chief of staff has revealed in a new book.

Mark Meadows also writes that though he knew each candidate was required “to test negative for the virus within seventy two hours of the start time … Nothing was going to stop [Trump] from going out there.”

Trump, Meadows says in the book, returned a negative result from a different test shortly after the positive.

Nonetheless, the stunning revelation of an unreported positive test follows a year of speculation about whether Trump, then 74 years old, had the potentially deadly virus when he faced Biden, 77, in Cleveland on 29 September – and what danger that might have presented.

Trump openly lauded the work of his doctors, as well as a therapeutic treatment from Regeneron, as the reason for his speedy recovery.

FedEx Driver Under Investigation After Dumping Hundreds of Packages into Ravine

As if the rest of the supply chain wasn’t already damaged enough.

Published

As the holiday season approaches, the strain on our network of mail couriers continues to ramp up, and the stress appears to have been too much for at least one delivery driver.

For many, the headaches have already begun:  Missing packages, erroneous deliveries, and unbelievable delays.  But for hundreds of folks in Alabama, something even worse has occurred.

Authorities investigating the discovery of hundreds of FedEx packages in an Alabama ravine have questioned the driver they think is responsible — and believe the driver dumped packages there at least six times, a sheriff said Tuesday.

The investigation began November 24, when sheriff’s deputies in northern Alabama’s Blount County found 300 to 400 packages in a ravine on private property, the county sheriff’s department said.

FedEx warned that the situation could take some time to sort out.

“This will not be an easy or fast case to close. … I am asking for patience from our citizens as our investigators work through this case,” Moon’s post reads. FedEx sent workers and trucks to the ravine last week to begin recovering and distributing the packages. The property is about 40 miles outside Birmingham.
The questioned driver “is no longer providing service on behalf of FedEx Ground,” FedEx said Tuesday in a prepared statement.
No charges have yet been filed in the case, and the suspected driver has not been arrested.
