Pros & Cons of Bernie Sanders As the Democrat Nominee [Opinion]

and cons and cons and…

Published

The latest distraction for news junkies is that Democrats think Bernie Sanders could really win the their Nomination for Election 2020.

So, at this point, let’s do a cost/benefit analysis for the Republicans if Bernie should get the nomination he was robbed of in 2016.

–We could have a full-on debate about Socialism vs. Capitalism. It is sad that we have to keep having that debate. Every generation, young or old, seems to fall in love with Utopian thinking, or they have been indoctrinated by radical, Leftist political factions who play the long game.

–Squishy or corrupt (sometimes one and the same) Republicans will be forced to better articulate those arguments at which many have been inept at making thus far.

–Everyday Americans will be reminded of the sacrifices that so many have made to prevent the nightmare of socialism. It will shine a light on tyranny and evil rather than allowing it to fester in darkness.

–Trump has been preparing for this argument for over two years. He’s ready for it and has actual, measurable, results to back it up.

–Bernie is everything the Left claims to hate: Old, Rich, White, Male who can only pander to the groups to which the Left has been so condescending and relegating to the status of victimhood. If he does win the nomination, look for him to choose a black female running mate, regardless of what she stands for. It’s all about identity politics and ad hominem attacks on their enemies because they have nothing else.

There is only one con as far as I can see tell for Bernie to be the Democrat nominee. He is likely to be hammered so hard that the socialist Left will start taking lessons from Obama on how to once again hide their radical, socialist views.

That puts us back to where we were in about 2010. Leave it to Donald Trump in the meantime to illustrate the moral imperative of freedom… and the prosperity that is possible when individual sovereignty and free will is protected by a restrained government. What a coincidence! That’s exactly the way our Founders intended it.

FBI Backtracks After Unconscionable Statement on Synagogue Hostage Situation

Wonder what took them so long?

Published

on

Earlier this week, the FBI caught a great deal of deserved flak over a ridiculously obtuse assessment of a nearly disastrous situation, and now they’re attempting to backtrack heavily.

It all began after the brother of one of the world’s most notorious terrorists took several people hostage at a synagogue in Texas, and on Saturday, no less.  Thankfully, the situation resolved with no innocent persons being killed, and only the perpetrator losing his life in the process.

But the FBI’s original assessment of the situation appeared to suggest that the targeting of a synagogue by a Radical Islamic sympathizer was somehow not a matter of antisemitism.  Twitter was soon full of angsty, shocked posts, blasting the FBI for their inability to see the forest for the trees.

Now, the Bureau is backtracking.  Big time.

Malik Faisal Akram, the British national who was killed Saturday night after allegedly taking four people hostage inside a Texas synagogue, spoke “repeatedly” about a convicted terrorist during negotiations with law enforcement, according to an FBI statement obtained by Fox News.

The statement, which was released late Sunday, does not identify the terrorist serving an 86-year prison sentence in the U.S. on terrorism charges, but may shed new light on a possible motive.

Akram could be heard on a Facebook livestream demanding the release of Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani neuroscientist suspected of having ties to al Qaeda who was convicted of trying to kill U.S. Army officers in Afghanistan.

“This is a terrorism-related matter, in which the Jewish community was targeted, and is being investigated by the Joint Terrorism Task Force,” the statement read.

The sudden change of tone may be a day late and a buck short, however, as this isn’t the first time that the FBI has engaged in such boneheaded behavior of late.

UFC Chief Laments Lack of Available Monoclonal COVID Treatments

This, just days after Florida accused the federal government of hoarding the life-saving treatments.

Published

on

If you were to ask the government about the options that we have for defeating the coronavirus pandemic, you are likely to hear but one side of the story:  Vaccines.

The Biden administration has been unwavering in their support of these inoculations, even going so far as to attempt to install a constitutionally unsound vaccine mandate that took only two months for the Supreme Court to gut.

But there are other options too, induing the widely popular and effective monoclonal antibody treatments.  And, despite the government’s insistence on pushing vaccines on the masses, the Biden administration has also appeared to corner the market on these life-saving medicines…and they’re being awfully stingy with them.

“I bet I could get some f*****g pain pills quicker than I could get monoclonal antibodies,” UFC President Dana White said in regards to the rationing of monoclonal antibodies for treatment of COVID-19 during a press conference on Saturday following the UFC 45 Vegas in Las Vegas, NV.

MMA Weekly asked White about a left-wing censorship campaign targeting Joe Rogan under the auspices of “misinformation” involving an “open letter” from assorted medical professionals and academic calling on Spotify, the distributor or Rogan’s eponymous podcast, to “take action” against what they described as “mass-misinformation” which is “medically and culturally dangerous.”

The exchange was lively to say the least.

MMA Weekly asked, “I was wondering what your thoughts were with the 200-plus doctors trying to put pressure on Spotify saying that Joe’s a menace.”

White replied, “Are they really? Well how about this, ever since I came out and said what I did, It’s almost impossible now to get monoclonal antibodies. They’re making it so you can’t get them — medicine that absolutely works, they’re keeping from us. I don’t want to get too political and start getting into all this s***, but ivermectin and monoclonal antibodies have been around for a long time. Now, all of a sudden, you can’t dig them up to save your life. The doctors won’t give them to you.”

The criticism arrives amid a flurry of complaints from Florida officials, complaining that the Biden administration simply will not ship these treatments to them, and without providing any reason as to why.
