Professor: Denying Socialism is Denying U.S. Constitution

A recent poll revealed six out of ten Democratic primary voters have a high regard for socialism.  Forty-three percent of Iowa caucus-goers described themselves as socialist.  An ideology that was once considered taboo in the American polity, and is a proven failure time-after-time, has a stranglehold on a once great party.

How could this happen?  How can a people be so deceived?  One only has to look at Venezuela to witness the horrors of socialism, or worse, look to Nazi Germany and Mussolini’s Italy.

The most likely answer is indoctrination at both secondary and collegiate education.  An associate professor at Tennessee State University is promulgating an assertion that the U.S. Constitution is a socialist mandate.  Of course, the only way one can construe such a notion is thru the preamble to the Constitution. 

This so-called professor takes a giant leap of faith by divining social justice, as understood by socialists, in a paragraph that was meant as an introduction.  Here is a revealing excerpt in his op-ed:

Third, the Constitution separates out general welfare from other goals. Blessings of liberty can only be secured to ourselves and our posterity if market failures are properly remedied. We need courts to enforce contracts, law and order to ensure domestic tranquility and some devotion to equality to establish justice. We cannot achieve “a more perfect union” without some notion of equality and a sense of social justice. Therefore, the demand for equality (embedded in the notions of justice and general welfare) is not a socialist war cry; it is a constitutional mandate.

Nowhere is equality mentioned in the preamble, or the Constitution itself.  The professor’s assertions are patently deceptive and outright dishonest.  The U.S. Constitution mandates a federalist system in which states and the federal government have designated roles. 

Socialism is highly centralized without limitations on the power of the general government.  The Bill of Rights was a prerequisite for ratification by the states simply because they feared an out of control entity would trample on their sovereignty. 

The Anti-Federalist knew there would be those who would bastardize the preamble to implement their ends and justify their means.  The pseudonymous writer Brutus wrote the following:

But it is said, by some of the advocates of this system, "That the idea that Congress can levy taxes at pleasure, is false, and the suggestion wholly unsupported: that the preamble to the constitution is declaratory of the purposes of the union, and the assumption of any power not necessary to establish justice, &c. to provide for the common defence, &c. will be unconstitutional. Besides, in the very clause which gives the power of levying duties and taxes, the purposes to which the money shall be appropriated, are specified, viz. to pay the debts, and provide for the common defence and general welfare."1 I would ask those, who reason thus, to define what ideas are included under the terms, to provide for the common defence and general welfare? Are these terms definite, and will they be understood in the same manner, and to apply to the same cases by every one? No one will pretend they will. It will then be matter of opinion, what tends to the general welfare; and the Congress will be the only judges in the matter. To provide for the general welfare, is an abstract proposition, which mankind differ in the explanation of, as much as they do on any political or moral proposition that can be proposed; the most opposite measures may be pursued by different parties, and both may profess, that they have in view the general welfare; and both sides may be honest in their professions, or both may have sinister views. Those who advocate this new constitution declare, they are influenced by a regard to the general welfare; those who oppose it, declare they are moved by the same principle; and I have no doubt but a number on both sides are honest in their professions; and yet nothing is more certain than this, that to adopt this constitution, and not to adopt it, cannot both of them be promotive of the general welfare.

 Here is the professor’s conclusion:

Denying democratic socialism is tantamount to denying the Constitution of the United States. Denying democratic socialism is as good as denying what our Founding Fathers set out to accomplish: a more perfect union that embraces general welfare, justice and the blessings of liberty for all. The call to shun the path of democratic socialism basically translates into a call to give up the founding principles of the nation.

If the founding fathers’ goal were socialism, state governments would have been abolished long ago and there would have been no attempt to limit the powers of the federal government.  Socialism can only work when the people are subservient to a cabal of social engineers.



This is going to ruffle some feathers

The Trouble With Trump

When Newt Gingrich rhetorically slapped around a moderator during a 2012 republican presidential debate, I like millions of other conservatives, jumped to our feet and yelled, “Hell Yeah!  It’s about damn time somebody fought back against these scoundrels!”  I believe Speaker Gingrich won the South Carolina primary after that.

I understand the exuberance behind Trump’s candidacy.  The Donald is willing to go where very few dare to tread.  The New York businessman is willing to call out a biased media, a corrupt Washington D.C. political system, and political correctness that have run amok.  When he made fun of a handicapped reporter, I truly thought that would have been the end of his candidacy.  A friend of mine remarked, “He’s such a New Yorker.”

I don’t have a problem with Mr. Trump’s brashness; however, I do have a problem with his policies.  He is too vague.  No one seems to be able to extract from him details on how Mexico is going to pay for a wall, or on his trade policies.  All we know is, he’s going to make America great again.

When Carrier announced they were relocating their Indiana operations to Mexico, Trump said he would punish them.  The United States can’t simply tax a company for expatriation.  However, it can raise tariffs on the products they and other like companies ship into the country.  That is, in effect, a tax on goods Americans will have to pay.

Americans have to ask themselves why manufacturing companies are leaving the country.  Could it possibly be ravenous and antagonistic federal bureaucracies have created a toxic environment which makes it difficult for businesses to operate?  Could it be a tax code that is so complicated, it takes an army of tax lawyers and accountants to ensure compliance?  Could it possibly be minimum wage requirements that force employers to pay entry level workers a higher rate than their worth?  Could it possibly be the dictatorial nature of Obamacare that mandates employers to pay a high premium for health insurance that is basically worthless?

Republican candidates have to address the reasons why companies are leaving the United States instead of blaming them.  Raising tariffs is not the answer.  Can anyone say Smoot-Hawley, or, how about the Tariff of Abominations that almost sparked a civil war in 1833?  Both tariff acts had a disastrous affect on the economy.

Another problem I have with Trump is his apparent lack of ideology.  He has stated more than once, he is a deal maker.  We don’t need more dealmakers in Washington D.C.  Twenty trillion dollars in federal debt is a testament to that.

What we need is a constitutionalist who will adhere to the rule of law and not looking for ways to skirt around it.

The trouble with Trump is twofold: a lack of ideology and his braggadocio in cutting deals.  The last thing we need is someone who believes he can negotiate in good faith with Progressives, Palestinians and Putin.  All three are principled terrorists without a moral compass.  How can anyone deal that?  

Medicaid's Trojan Horse for the Working Class

“Free” doesn’t exactly mean free as billed by progressives.  Someone has to pay for all this “free stuff.”  We conservatives instinctively know this because we work for a living and are cursed with common sense.  Progressives usually can’t figure this out until it’s too late.  Some never do. 

The Affordable Health Care Act has rendered health insurance too expensive for the working class.  Most will be forced onto Medicaid or pay a fine.  Obamacare is the ultimate Trojan horse; instead of being filled with soldiers, this innocent looking gift is filled with government bureaucrats just waiting to plunder a citizen’s estate.

But with the expansion under ObamaCare, more and more people will qualify for Medicaid without realizing that the coverage is really not free, but instead a hidden secured loan whose terms aren't explicit. As Carol Ostrom, the Seattle Times health reporter, explained:

The way Prins saw it, that meant health insurance via Medicaid is hardly “free” for Washington residents 55 or older. It’s a loan, one whose payback requirements aren't well advertised. And it penalizes people who, despite having a low income, have managed to keep a home or some savings they hope to pass to heirs, Prins said.

Sofia and Gary lived together, she as an artist and he as a tango instructor, and when they saw that they would see their assets evaporate under estate recovery rules if they signed up for Medicaid, they decided to get married. That way, their combined incomes qualified them for ObamaCare coverage on the state exchange, helped along with some federal subsidies. Said Sofia:

We’re happy to be getting married. Unfortunately not everyone has such an elegant solution to the problem.

No, they don’t. Barry Blake lived with his mother who owned her own home and was covered under Medicaid. When she died, the state of Kentucky “took the house ... to be sold and pay those expenses” according to a suit Blake filed to recover it in 2009. The state also took the washer and dryer, their lawn mower, gardening tools, kitchen appliances and other personal items. Blake hadn't read the fine print. The lawsuit was dismissed.

There is nothing like the siren song of “free.”


Obama Admin. Plunders Medicaid and Medicare

The Democratic Party is the federal mafia.  Barack Obama has installed progressive capos at the head of federal bureaucracies and is plundering the U.S. treasury.  The latest shakedown happened at the Department of Human and Health Services and Centers for Medicaid and Medicare.  Secretary Sylvia Burwell diverted billions of taxpayer monies from programs designed to help the poor and elderly to insurance companies that conspired with the Obama administration to force citizens to buy their product.

At issue for lawmakers on the House Energy and Commerce Committee is whether the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services violated the Affordable Care Act by diverting $3.5 billion intended for the U.S. Treasury to insurance companies.
“[Earlier this month], the administration announced that they would be using billions of taxpayer dollars to make payments to insurance companies under the Obamacare reinsurance program,” Rep. Joe Pitts, R-Penn., said Wednesday during a hearing with Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell.
“The announcement that the administration made represents an illegal wealth transfer from hardworking taxpayers to insurers,” he continued, “and this law is very clear—$5 billion of reinsurance fees must be returned to the taxpayers.
Experts have pointed out that with the absence of payments to the U.S. Treasury in 2014 and 2015, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services owes the U.S. Treasury $3.5 billion in payments from the transitional reinsurance program—$2 billion for 2014, and $1.5 billion for 2015.

Laws?  Progressives don’t need stinking laws.

Nevada Caucus Chaos

This is going to be interesting.

H/T: Weasel Zippers

Nevada: One-in-Five Children Have an Illegal Alien Parent

While we watch Nevadans caucus tonight over who their republican presidential nominee should be, let’s keep in mind the people who reside there:

“In Nevada, almost one-in-five students (18%) have at least one unauthorized [illegal] immigrant parent, the largest share in the nation,” Pew reports. This high percentage places Nevada well beyond California and Texas, where the figure is 13 percent.
 While Nevada has the one of the highest unemployment rates in the entire country, it also has the highest percentage of illegal workforce in the entire country — 10.2% of the state’s workforce is illegal.

We should also note Democrats had a turnout rate 30% lower than 2008 with a surprising little twist.

The Nevada State Democratic Party said Monday that there were about 84,000 caucus-goers in their Democratic nomination contest, which is the first in the West and third in the nation.

 About 14,000 of those voters registered the day of.

 But in 2008, there were 118,000 Democratic voters who caucused, with about 30,000 registering the same day.

State party officials also said 65 percent of Saturday's participants were first-time caucus-goers and 41 percent of them were minorities.

Now that’s interesting.


Trump Threatens Family for Supporting Opponent

This kind of stuff bothers me.  It reminds of the kind of thuggery democrats do to their political opponents.

Marco Rubio Has to Answer for Univision

Marco Rubio has to answer for Univision.  His comments about amnesty, in a foreign language to foreigners who invaded this country, cannot be ignored.  Senator Ted Cruz confronted him on his subversive promises to undermine the rule of law by rewarding those who have no regard for American sovereignty or its citizens.  Here is an excerpt from the Daily Caller:

It began when Cruz said: “Marco went on Univision in Spanish and said he would not rescind President Obama’s illegal executive amnesty on his first day in office.” Rubio objected vehemently that Cruz was lying. But the transcript of the Univision program is clear: Rubio did indeed say what Cruz quotes him as saying. Was Cruz perhaps quoting Rubio out of context, making the statement seem to imply more than it really did?

Quite the reverse. Had Cruz cited the fuller context, Rubio would have looked much worse. He had actually told Univision that Obama’s DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] is important. He added “At some point it’s going to have to end,” but then spelled out when and why: “it’s going to end because immigration reform is going to pass.” In other words, Obama’s illegal executive action would stay in place into an indefinite future time when legislation enacts a legal version of it anyway.

Marco Rubio won his senate seat with overwhelming  and enthusiastic Tea Party support.  This man turns around and stabs them in the back by colluding with the likes of Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, John McCain and Lindsey Graham.  His candidacy for president should have been strangled after that.  Marco Rubio has to answer for his betrayal.

Pamela Geller: SPLC Hit List

A Message From Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

The Lonely Libertarian

Norway Prepares for Collapse of Sweden

Holy cow!  Norway is preparing to reject the Geneva Convention in case Sweden collapses.  This is how dangerous Europe has become in the wake of an unprecedented invasion by Muslim immigrants.
Norway is ready to abandon the Geneva Convention if Sweden collapses. The border will be closed by force, and Swedish refugees will be rejected without the possibility to seek asylum. "We are prepared for the worst," says Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

There is such an imminent danger that the Schengen agreement, and the asylum system in Sweden will break down, that Norway must have an emergency legislation in place in case it happens, believes Norway's Prime Minister Erna Solberg. Therefore, she has crafted a law that will allow for Norwegian authorities to reject asylum seekers who do not come directly from a conflict area.
 Is Norway going to deny asylum to actual Swedes or just to Muslim immigrants trying to flee Sweden?  How ironic it would be if liberal Swedes flee their own country to escape policies they enacted.

Obama: I'm Not a Big Government, Crazy Liberal

Either Barack Obama is delusional or an outright liar.  This man had the balls to stand before the National Governors Association and declare that he’s not a raging, big government liberal.  Here is an excerpt from the Washington Examiner:

President Obama on Monday denied conservative arguments that he's a "big government, crazy liberal," and said instead he has welcomed regulatory reform during his time in office.

Responding to a question from GOP Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan during a National Governors Association luncheon, he asked the governors to send the White House a list of regulations that they find "most illogical and frustrating."

"I don't believe in regulations for regulations sake," he told the governors. "[The idea that] somehow that I get a kick out of big government, is simply not the case.

This man and his administration has passed a record amount of regulations.  Here is an excerpt from the

2015 was a record-setting year for the Federal Register, according to numbers the Competitive Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C., released Wednesday.

This year’s daily publication of the federal government’s rules, proposed rules and notices amounted to 81,611 pages as of Wednesday, higher than last year's 77,687 pages and higher than the all-time high of 81,405 pages in 2010 — with one day to go in 2015

Somebody should slap a bullshit detector on this man.


WaPo Columnist Suggest Progressives Sabotage Republican Primaries

Progressives are freaking out over the prospect of a Trump presidency.  They equate his “demagoguery” as Nazi-esque.  A political theorist and contributing columnist at the Washington Post is trying to come to terms with the ascendency of a man whose rhetoric is “opportunistic and divisive.”  Here is an excerpt:

Like any number of us raised in the late 20th century, I have spent my life perplexed about exactly how Hitler could have come to power in Germany. Watching Donald Trump’s rise, I now understand. Leave aside whether a direct comparison of Trump to Hitler is accurate. That is not my point. My point rather is about how a demagogic opportunist can exploit a divided country.

Isn’t that ironic?  That’s how we feel about Barack Obama and the whole damn Democratic Party! 

This columnist’s analysis is flawed.  Trump isn’t an ideologue.  That should be clear to everyone by now.   However, The National Socialist German Workers’ Party, or Nazis, were ideologues.  Their policies and methods of gaining power mirror today’s Democratic Party.  Sad but true.  I, like many others, have made that comparison in a number of post

As with most liberals, this Washington Post columnist has the need to dictate who are nominee should be, simply because they know better than us.  She wants liberals to reregister as republicans and sabotage our primaries.

Democrats, your leading candidate is too weak to count on as a firewall. She might be able to pull off a general election victory against Trump, but then again she might not. Too much is uncertain this year. You, too, need to help the Republicans beat Trump; this is no moment for standing by passively. If your deadline for changing your party affiliation has not yet come, re-register and vote for Rubio, even if, like me, you cannot stomach his opposition to marriage equality. I too would prefer Kasich as the Republican nominee, but pursuing that goal will only make it more likely that Trump takes the nomination. The republic cannot afford that.

 What this republic can’t afford is another national socialist like Bernie Sanders, or in the case of Hillary Clinton – a career criminal.


Hey Red Pope, About those Vatican Walls...

Is it possible for a pope to be communist?  The premise, so I’m told, is communism doesn’t allow competing ideologies.  Communism in itself is a religion of sorts and part of its dogma is the disallowance of nation-states.

The Red Pope’s open borders policies is antithetical to nation-states.  Indeed, his economic policies are suspect as well.  There is something not right about this man.  Maybe it’s just the times in which we live when our leaders betray the interest of their citizens.  The United States has its Judas in Barack Obama; Europeans have Brussels and the Catholics have Pope Francis.

Here is the reason why the Vatican has a wall surrounding it.  Maybe the Red Pope should brush up on his history for it tends to repeat itself.

The pope’s sovereign city-state, Vatican City, is surrounded by giant walls.
What’s more, the walls were specifically built by a prior pope to repel Muslims.
History shows back in 846, Muslim raiders known as the Saracens looted Old St. Peter’s Basilica and the Papal Basilica of St. Paul outside the walls. The pirates took priceless treasures from the shrines.
Shocked by the sack of some of the most sacred sites in Christendom, Pope Leo IV created the Leonine Wall, completely surrounding the Vatican Hill. Additional defenses were added in the 15th and 16th centuries

Muslims Outraged Over Trump's Pig Blood Remarks

Donald Trump knows how to push people’s buttons.  A Muslim group is highly offended at remarks the republican presidential candidate made at a South Carolina rally.  These death cult adherents are demanding a debate on the finer points of the “religion of peace.”  Here is their missive:

"Ever since you announced your run for Presidency of the United States, you have scapegoated the American Muslim community and other minority groups for all your perceived ills of America.

The truth is that you — and your supporters — are scared of anything that is different than you.

You rely on the promotion of fear and Internet lies to fuel the flames of hate and divisiveness across our country.

You have no understanding of the world in which you live. That's why you insist on backward policies, such as building walls and segregating communities based on religion, as a desperate attempt to create a false sense of strength and security, and to preserve your distorted view of what makes America great.

Well, we have news for you: We will no longer be bullied. We will no longer be your punching bag.

We challenge you to a debate with a representative from the American Muslim community on the issues you have raised about Islam and Muslims.

We are confident that you, a person of great rhetorical ability, will appreciate this opportunity to showcase to America your strength and knowledge in such matters."

Actually, we do know the world we live in and that world would be better a place had the anti-Christ Muhammad never existed.  We don’t need a debate to showcase the misery, deprivations and death meted out by this so-called religion of peace.  We’re reminded everyday of the fruits of Islam when we turn on the television, computer or open a newspaper.

Why Cruz is more dangerous than Trump

Totalitarians, like Robert Reich, fear Ted Cruz.  The diminutive socialist list 4 reasons why the senator is more dangerous to progressives than Trump.  As for me, those are damn good reasons Ted Cruz should be our next president.

Indiana Sheriff Stands Up to Federal Thugs

Backbone, that’s what local communities need when confronting an overzealous federal government and their legions of bureaucratic thugs.  A sheriff from Elkhart County in Indiana defended a farmer from FDA agents and their collaborators in the DOJ.  These government officials were trying to run this man out of business simply because he sells raw milk.  The Sheriff sent the following notice.

“I understand that you have made recent requests to (the farmer) for documents and to appear before a grand jury, and he has had a number of inspections and attempted inspections on his farm within Elkhart County.This is notice that any further attempts to inspect this farm without a warrant signed by a judge, based on probable cause, will result in federal inspectors’ removal or arrest for trespassing by my officers or I. In addition, if any further action is taken by the federal government on (the farmer), while he is in Elkhart County, I will expect that you or federal authorities contact my office prior to such action. I will expect you to forward this information to your federal associates, including the FDA.”

Shortly after the email was sent, the farmer received a certified letter from the DOJ that said his grand jury subpoena had been cancelled. No federal inspectors have visited the farm since 2011.
“Your local elected officials … can stem the tide of federal overreach if they apply just a little backbone in supporting and defending the Constitution. Expect it! Demand it!,” Rogers wrote. “Some bloggers and natural food writers have hailed me as a hero. I’m no hero. I’m just doing my job

Defending the Constitution isn’t that easy when Washington D.C. has little to no regard for the rule of law.


California Has Turned into a Medieval Society

California is the ideal utopia for ruling class liberals.  The “richerals” as Victor David Hansen describes wealthy progressives have carved out a niche of prosperity for themselves while impoverishing the citizenry.

Mr. Hansen has published a series of essays describing the degeneration of a once prosperous state into a medieval society.  Here is an excerpt from WND:

Hanson dubbed it “the weirdest place in the world” in his new e-book, a collection of PJ Media essays titled “The Decline and Fall of California.” And who could argue the point when he calls out absurdities like Tiburcio Vasquez Elementary School – an institution of learning named after a 19th century robber and murderer?
That just scratches the surface of his thesis, though. Hanson demonstrates the sweeping impact of liberal elitism on the state’s culture. “California is both more poorly managed than any time in its past, more divided between rich and poor, more fragmented by opportunistic ethnic identity politics, more impoverished by massive illegal immigration – and never more naturally wealthy.”

California is naturally wealthy, yet is impoverished by socialist policies.  Doesn’t that remind you of Venezuela?


Trump Cleans Up South Carolina Delegates

Trump won big in South Carolina.  He not only won the popular vote by a wide margin, more importantly, he has a commanding lead in delegates.  The reported the following:

Thankfully, we have some help breaking down South Carolina's allocation process from Josh Putnam, lecturer in the Department of Political Science at the University of Georgia, whose obsession with elections manifests in his blog, Frontloading HQ. He explains that South Carolina has two kinds of delegates. Twenty-nine delegates are awarded to whichever candidate wins the state popular vote. The rest of the delegates (21) come from congressional districts. South Carolina has seven congressional districts, and each district has three delegates. When a candidate wins a congressional district, he gets all three of its delegates.

According to ABC News, all but two congressional districts have come out in Trump's favor; the remaining two show a tight race between Rubio and Trump and results remain to be seen. But it's pretty clear Cruz can count on zero delegates from Saturday's contest. Currently, Donald Trump leads the pack with 61 delegates overall, Cruz has 11, and Rubio is lurking right behind Cruz with 10 delegates, ABC News reported.

 That has to be a devastating blow to Ted Cruz.  He had a respectable third place finish with no delegates to show for it.  The Trumpster has become a formidable foe.

FDR and Hitler Admired Mussolini's Fascist State

Hitler was a great admirer of Italy’s Mussolini.  Fascism was an alluring mistress to government functionaries of that time, including FDR and the minions in his administration; indeed, the feeling was mutual.  Here is an excerpt from Freedom Outpost.    

In the North American Review in 1934, the progressive writer Roger Shaw described the New Deal as “Fascist means to gain liberal ends.” He wasn’t hallucinating. FDR’s adviser Rexford Tugwell wrote in his diary that Mussolini had done “many of the things which seem to me necessary.” Lorena Hickok, a close confidante of Eleanor Roosevelt, who lived in the White House for a spell, wrote approvingly of a local official who said, “If [President] Roosevelt were actually a dictator, we might get somewhere.” She added that if she were younger, she’d like to lead “the Fascist Movement in the United States.” At the National Recovery Administration (NRA), the cartel-creating agency at the heart of the early New Deal, one report declared forthrightly, “The Fascist Principles are very similar to those we have been evolving here in America.”

Roosevelt himself called Mussolini “admirable” and professed that he was “deeply impressed by what he has accomplished.” The admiration was mutual. In a laudatory review of Roosevelt’s 1933 book Looking Forward, Mussolini wrote, “Reminiscent of Fascism is the principle that the state no longer leaves the economy to its own devices.… Without question, the mood accompanying this sea change resembles that of Fascism.” The chief Nazi newspaper, Volkischer Beobachter, repeatedly praised “Roosevelt’s adoption of National Socialist strains of thought in his economic and social policies” and “the development toward an authoritarian state” based on the “demand that collective good be put before individual self-interest.”

Liberals, as long as I can remember, have insisted fascism is a right-wing ideology.  They bastardize our language and history as a means to mask their failures only to ensure we repeat them again and again.

Cruz and Trump Discuss WWIII

Islamic Rape of Europe

A picture is worth a thousand words.  Here are two.

Feds Rough Up Texas Man Over Student Loan

All you deadbeats who have outstanding federal student loans had better beware because big government mafia is out to collect and it will cost an arm, a leg and possibly jail time.  A Houston, Texas man found out what $1500 means to a central government that desperately needs money.

Aker said he was put in the back of a truck and placed in a cell at the federal building in downtown Houston. Later, he was brought to court, where a "prosecutor," county clerk and judge were present. Aker said the prosecutor was actually a collection lawyer.

"Then I get a lecture (from the judge) about the United States and stealing from the government," Aker said.

Aker told The News that he was ordered to pay $5,700 for the loan, including interest. However, Aker was also ordered to pay for the cost of the morning arrest — nearly $1,300. If he didn't pay that amount by March 1, he said, he was told he would be arrested again.

The average student loan debt for 2015 graduates is approximately $35,000, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Aker said he was never read his rights during the ordeal. He is in the process of finding a lawyer.

Rights?  We have no rights in the Age of Obama unless you’re a protected class.  Mr. Aker is a black man, but he’s a black man who lawfully owns a gun.  That’s a disqualification especially in a county that has prosecuted people for merely being conservatives.


Fear of Muslims is RATIONAL

Bernie Sanders a Bum Until Age 40

Why do democrats nominate bums and/or con artist for presidents?  Barack Obama couldn’t hold a regular job.  He was a community organizer for a better part of his “working” career.  The Clintons are political grafters.  Hillary is the only person I’ve ever heard of who turned a $1000 investment in cattle futures into a $100,000 profit.  It’s no wonder she and Bill have a comfy relationship with Wall Street.  Now we’re finding out Bernie Sanders didn’t earn a paycheck until he was 40 years old!

Sanders spent most of his life as an angry radical and agitator who never accomplished much of anything. And yet now he thinks he deserves the power to run your life and your finances — “We will raise taxes;” he confirmed Monday, “yes, we will.”

One of his first jobs was registering people for food stamps, and it was all downhill from there.

Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment. Then he had a child out of wedlock. Desperate, he tried carpentry but could barely sink a nail. “He was a shi**y carpenter,” a friend told Politico Magazine. “His carpentry was not going to support him, and didn’t.”

Then he tried his hand freelancing for leftist rags, writing about “masturbation and rape” and other crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was “always poor” and his “electricity was turned off a lot.” They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment — and this is what his friends had to say about him.

The only thing he was good at was talking … non-stop … about socialism and how the rich were ripping everybody off. “The whole quality of life in America is based on greed,” the bitter layabout said. “I believe in the redistribution of wealth in this nation.”

Is this for real?  I’m having a hard time believing this.  Surely, the mainstream media would’ve reported on something this disturbing; or, maybe not considering past presidential elections.
