  • Even in Chavez's hometown, Venezuela 'revolution' ails before election - "Chavistas destroyed us"

    ........."We were 'Chavistas'," said Julio Coromoto...a workman next to a queue of dozens at a shabby supermarket."But they destroyed this town.".... Nationwide polls predict voters will punish the socialists next month, possibly taking away their majority in the National Assembly for the first time since Chavez took power in early 1999.To hold on to loyalists, the government is milking Chavez's legacy at every turn, re-naming voting centers after him, splashing his smiling face on billboards and filling state television with his most rousing speeches.In Barinas, his brother Argenis and cousin Asdrubal are running for the legislature, hoping to follow in...

    The True Story of Plymouth and the First Thanksgiving Few public school students remain who remember the true story of the Pilgrim’s first few years in Plymouth Colony. The historic record was at one time a valuable part of American education. Essential lessons were learned from the failure of our nation’s first disastrous experiment with communism. The first settler’s failure actually birthed the implementation of free market economics in the new world. The truth of much of America’s history simply does not support the politically correct narrative of today’s textbook authors, so the truth has dwindled into obscurity over the...

    Socialism has never worked in the past. Socialism does not work in the present. Socialism will never work in the future. The reason is simple: socialism is predicated on a violation of two of the 10 commandments of God. The 8th Commandment says, “Thou shalt not steal.” The 10th Commandment says, “Thou shalt not covet.” And yet socialism is driven by covetousness – the greedy, grasping hunger of some for other people’s money – and built on theft – the use of government power to coercively lift money from the wallets of some in order to give it to others....

In my last post, I introduced you to a now long-forgotten work of fiction from the 1880s that invented much of what we think we "know" about the First Thanksgiving.

    In the middle of December 1620 the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, leaving behind the sinfulness of the “old world” to make a “new Jerusalem” in America. Three years later, in November 1623, they had a great feast thanking God for getting them through an earlier famine, and now for a bountiful crop. What had created the earlier famine and then the bountiful crops? The story is told in the diary of Governor Bradford, who was one of the elders of that early Puritan colony. At first, they decided to turn their back on all the institutions of the England...

    The annual national collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is this weekend. What many Catholics do not realize is that at the very core of the CCHD is a philosophy of revolutionary leftist ideologies. Over the years, the CCHD has been rightly criticized for funding organizations that are themselves promoting contraception, homosexuality, abortion, prostitution, and socialism. But these issues are only symptoms of an overall thrust that is aimed directly at convincing Catholics to fund Marxist revolution in the United States. The intent of this article, while certainly not exhaustive, is to help Catholics understand how the...

    Contender for the Democratic presidential nomination Sen. Bernie Sanders (S-Vt) made an effort to define democratic socialism in a speech to Georgetown University students this week. "Unlike the socialism imposed by Lenin or Mao, democratic socialism allows voters to select who will rule over them," Sanders said. "With the backing of the electorate, these rulers will redress the inequities stemming from inequalities that are no fault of the individual." Sanders asserted "the notion that a person's hard work might entitle him to a disproportionate share of the world's wealth is just plain wrong. A person's ability to work hard is...

The first Muslim Caliph Abu Bakr introduced a guaranteed minimum standard of income, granting each man, woman, and child ten dirhams annually; this was later increased to twenty dirhams.[6] The first experimental Islamic commune was established during the Russian Revolution of 1917 as part of the Waisi movement, an early supporter of the Soviet government.

    It is time to come to grips with the inevitable health insurance price increases being caused by the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA) known as "Obamacare." Obamacare's short-term sweeteners and phase-ins are behind us, and the fundamentally flawed structure of Obamacare and its true costs are exposed. The result: substantially increasing individual and small-group health insurance prices. Given the mandates required by the ACA law, these are not likely to recede any time soon. In Minnesota, small-group prices skyrocketed by up to 94 percent in 2014. Individual plans are up by an average 31 percent, and up to 60 percent...

If Sanders is so concerned about hungry children, he should just tell Michelle Obama to give them their food back. This critique of his only rings true if...

    I almost never made it to this world due to China's notorious one-child policy. For thousands of years, China didn't have a population policy. Traditional Chinese culture believes that having many children is a blessing from heaven. Even after Communists took over China in 1949, Chairman Mao continued to encourage Chinese women to have as many babies as possible, because more babies meant more future foot-soldiers for Communist China. Under his rule, China's population grew from 660 million in 1961(after the Chinese famine) to 930 million in 1976. When Mao passed away in 1976, he left China in such economic...

    Breitbart - Big Government ^ | 11-2-2015 | James Delingpole
    "Representative democracy" has failed; the private sector is "inept"; and only bigger government - led by China and the US - has the power to save the world from climate change. So says Bill Gates in a dogmatic but somewhat confused interview with The Atlantic in which he simultaneously pours scorn on green tech solutions but insists that more of them are needed - on a scale bigger than the Manhattan Project - if we are to deal successfully with a problem whose nature he admits may well have been exaggerated by environmentalists.

    We've been a fed a myth about heroic individuals -- and that allows the 1 percent to prosper at everyone's expense. Americans have been deceived by the notion that individual desires preempt the needs of society; by the Ayn-Rand/Reagan/Thatcher aversion to government regulation; by the distorted image of 'freedom' as winner-take-all capitalism; by the assurance that the benefits of greed will spread downwards to everyone. Our current capitalist-driven inequalities will only be rectified when people realize that a strong community makes successful individuals, not the other way around. These are a few of the ways we would benefit with a...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Did you see what Bill Gates did? Did you see what Bill Gates said? This is one of the craziest, nonsensical things I have ever in my life heard. I understand why he said it. But it is just over-the-top unbelievable. Bill Gates says that capitalism cannot save us from climate change. Bill Gates says that socialism is the only thing that can save us from climate change. "The world's richest man, Bill Gates, has said that the private sector is too selfish and inefficient to produce effective energy alternatives to fossil fuels. While announcing his plan...

    In the early morning hours of October 31 the tranquility of downtown Colorado Springs was interrupted by multiple shootings in which three innocents were killed before Colorado Springs Police were able to kill the gunman in a shootout. The Colorado Springs Gazette reported that just before 9 a.m. residents who heard the gunshots looked out their windows to see a man with a rifle. A 21-year-old witness named Matt Abshire said the gunman “shot a person on Prospect Street and two more near El Paso Street.” Police had been called and arrived to confront the gunman just after he had...
  • True Socialist Methods - Reform Movements Fail

    10/30/2015 6:39:51 PM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 6 replies
    One of the most fascinating things, I think, about the history of progressivism, is the convincing of Revolutionaries that rejecting the revolution and accepting Evolutionary Socialism is the better way forward. Tied in with this, is the timeline of when it all occurred. In 1910, in "A Talk with the Richest Socialist in America", the following was a part of the discussion: True Socialist Methods "What," I asked, "would be true Socialist methods?" The millionaire who would abolish all those methods by which most millionaires have been created in this country opened his big eyes (which had for a long...

    The Peoples Cube ^ | 10/23/2015
    Comrades, have you ever thought that the definition of our cherished base ideology of socialism (or whatever you want to call it : collectivism, Communism, democratic socialism, Fabianism, Fascism, Leninism, Marxism, Marxism;Leninism, socialism, statism, Trotskyism) is far too narrow to account for all the success in countries around the world where they aren't even socialist? This is how the capitalist dictionaries (spit) define it: Definition of socialism: a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole. policy or practice based...

Reposting and redistribution with attribution is permitted and encouraged. October 29, 2015 No. 4 In this issue of TheJIM!gram© I propose: "Let Them Be Red While We Take Back Reagan’s Blue" There has been understandable chortling among Republicans that at the Democrats’ first debate they finally came clean on the “s-word.” Long considered almost taboo in American politics, the term socialism can now be considered mainstream in the party of (for now, anyway) Jefferson,...
