New Poll Has Some Bad News For Liberals In Love With Reparations And Health Care For Illegals

Better hand out a box of tissues.

If you happen to listen to the mainstream media on a daily basis — why you would put yourself through such torture is beyond me — they’d seemingly have you convinced that reparations and health care for illegals are the top issues that the vast majority of Americans are concerned about right now and will have some sort of impact on the 2020 election.

And if you think that, it’s time to unplug from CNN and MSNBC stat, because a new poll says that’s not at all the case.

In fact, only 27 percent of folks surveyed supported reparations, and only 33 percent favored giving taxpayer-funded health care to illegal immigrants. The vast majority of those polled also stated that decriminalizing border crossing — a position held by most Democrats running for president — is a horrible idea.

The NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll of 1,346 adults was conducted July 15-17 and has a 3.5% margin of error.

Last month, the Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee debated reparations, the first such hearing in a decade. In the Senate, Sen. Cory Booker, a 2020 candidate, introduced a reparations bill in April, saying, “This bill is a way of addressing head-on the persistence of racism, white supremacy, and implicit racial bias in our country.”

“It will bring together the best minds to study the issue and propose solutions that will finally begin to right the economic scales of past harms and make sure we are a country where all dignity and humanity is affirmed,” Booker said. “Since slavery in this country, we have had overt policies fueled by white supremacy and racism that have oppressed African-Americans economically for generations,” he said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said reparations are a “bad idea,” and he’s totally right for a number of reasons. For starters, it’s unjust to hold innocent people accountable for the crimes of guilty people, especially when those guilty people are no longer even alive.

Secondly, reparations would be funded by tax dollars. We’re already taxed to the gills and can’t really afford much more of our daily household incomes to be drained away.

McConnell stated, “I don’t think reparations for something that happened 150 years — for whom none of us currently living are responsible — is a good idea. We’ve tried to deal with our original sin of slavery by fighting a civil war, by passing landmark civil rights legislation, by electing an African American president. I think we’re always a work in progress in this country but no one currently alive was responsible for that.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is a big fan of the idea, writing on Twitter:

“Slavery is a stain on America & we need to address it head on. I believe it’s time to start a national, full-blown conversation about reparations. I support the bill in the House to support a congressional panel of experts so that our nation can do what’s right & begin to heal.”

It’s important for us, as consumers of news product, to be aware that the mainstream media has given up on being objective journalists who present their audiences with facts and allow them to make up their own minds.

Now these outlets are propaganda arms that are designed to push forth the progressive agenda, making you believe the vast majority of Americans buy into what liberals are selling, when that isn’t at all the case.

Take the news with a grain of salt, folks. Or better yet, find better sources of information and factcheck often.

’60 Minutes’ Report on UFO’s has Twitter Users Spooked

The segment had social media users losing their collective minds.

Published

When it comes to the relationship between the US government and her citizens, there is little doubt that trust is an issue.  We’ve long understood that the large, cumbersome, federal agencies that our tax dollars fund are keeping many of us in the dark, and that rightly irks a great many Americans. Perhaps there is no better example of this secrecy than on the subject of UFO’s, beginning with the purported crash of a flying saucer in Roswell, New Mexico back in the late 1940’s, and continuing to this day with incidents such as the “Tic Tac” encounters reported by members of the armed forces. On Sunday night, mainstream news outfit 60 Minutes aired one hellacious report on the subject, featuring one of the Pentagon’s most well-respected researchers on the subject. Luis Elizondo spent 20 years running military intelligence operations worldwide: in Afghanistan, the Middle East and Guantanamo. He hadn’t given UFOs a second thought until 2008. That’s when he was asked to join something at the Pentagon called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, or “AATIP.” Lue Elizondo: The mission of AATIP was quite simple. It was to collect and analyze information involving anomalous aerial vehicles, what I guess in the vernacular you call them UFOs. We call them UAPs. Bill Whitaker: You know how this sounds? It sounds nutty, wacky. Lue Elizondo: Look, Bill, I’m not, I’m not telling you that, that it doesn’t sound wacky. What I’m telling you, it’s real. The question is, what is it? What are its intentions? What are its capabilities? Buried away in the Pentagon, AATIP was part of a $22 million program sponsored by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to investigate UFOs. When Elizondo took over in 2010 he focused on the national security implications of unidentified aerial phenomena documented by U.S. service…

Capitol Rioter Facing House Arrest After Mountain Lion Hunt

The excursion ran afoul of a “no guns” stipulation set by a judge.

While we may be thankfully several months removed from the tumultuous events of the January 6th attempted insurrection at the US Capitol, there is still a great deal of adjudication left to be done on the subject, as these cases are expected to drag out for several more months, or perhaps even years. One of the alleged participants of that event is now in hot water after the court discovered that he had gone on a mountain lion hunt despite being ordered to avoid firearms completely as a condition of his bail. A Colorado hunting guide charged with participating in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol will likely be placed on 24/7 house arrest — instead of remaining free while his case is pending — because he violated the conditions of his release by hunting and killing a mountain lion. Patrick Montgomery, a Littleton hunting guide, shot a mountain lion during a hunt in Douglas County on March 31, even though he was ordered not to possess any guns while the federal charges against him are pending, according to motions filed by prosecutors last week. Montgomery, 48, is accused of kicking a Metropolitan police officer in the chest and wrestling with the officer to try to take the officer’s baton during the Jan. 6 riot in Washington, D.C., according to court records. He was indicted on 10 charges in April, including assaulting a police officer, engaging in physical violence and illegally entering the Capitol building. Prosecutors pulled no punches in their assessment of Montgomery’s actions. “Montgomery has no respect for the Court’s orders, just like he had no respect for law enforcement at the Capitol on January 6,” reads a motion filed by prosecutors. “…Montgomery has flagrantly violated the law and has shown by his actions that he…
