  • MYTH BUSTED: Actually, Yes, Hitler Was a Socialist Liberal

    Louder with Crowder ^ | January 28 2016 | Courtney Kirchoff
    A favorite tactic employed by leftists is to describe the Nazis as “right wing,” with Adolf Hitler, their leader, as the grand leader of this “right wing” movement. Rewriting history is pretty common for leftists, as their history is littered with injustice (the KKK was founded by Democrats, did you know?). Injustices they claim to fight against today. Awkward. But thanks to this nifty thing called “history” in combination with “the internet,” we can bust this myth once and for all. Thoroughly. Or until a leftist insists on ignoring it. Then we’ll hold them down and tape their eyes open....

    Sanders wants to bring what he admired in the USSR, Cuba, Nicaragua, and other communist states to America. This may be an election that could seal the deal for the Progressive fundamental transformation of America, as 2016 is shaping up to be a watershed election. Socialists and Communists have run for the presidency many times in America. Between 1900 and 1920 Eugene V. Debs was the Socialist Party’s nominee in five presidential elections. The Communist Party USA has not disappeared.

    [...] Clearly, these were not the typical "Islamic terrorists" described in the boogeyman stories of American politicians who exploit fear for votes. Glendon Crawford, the industrial mechanic who conceived the plan, has all the panache of a Macy's shoe salesman; Eric Feight, a software engineer who helped build the device, looks like a less impish version of Kurt Vonnegut. But their harmless appearance belies their beliefs—Crawford was a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and the plot he hatched with Feight involved killing scores of Muslims, as well as officials at the governor's mansion in Albany, New York and at...

    Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders turned up the heat in New Hampshire on Wednesday, trading jabs on a number of issues including who is the more progressive Democratic presidential candidate. Trailing in the polls by an average of 18 points, a fiery Clinton maintained that she "would never quit" New Hampshire and will be campaigning hard despite her campaign's contention that Sanders, a senator from neighboring Vermont, has a built-in advantage. Team Sanders fought that narrative, saying it was an "insult" to the people of the Granite State who "are serious about their role in the nominating process." Sanders has...

    A coming change in accounting standards could do irreversible damage to community banks, U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Colo., said in a letter to the Financial Accounting Standards Board. An accounting-standards update due to be issued by the board would change the way all lenders set aside reserve funds in anticipation of possible losses. The board, wrote Tipton and Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Fla., should take "utmost caution" in proceeding because it has the potential to "irreversibly damage community banks' and credit unions' ability to continue to adequately serve their customers/members and communities and sustain the economic recovery." ...

    **SNIP** CNN's Jake Tapper asked Sanders, an independent senator from Vermont, about his memorable "damn emails" remark in an October debate and whether it meant he didn't think Clinton erred in her use of a private email account. "Nope, nope. That is not, I think, a fair assessment," Sanders replied on CNN's "State of the Union." "That is, I think, a very serious issue. There is a legal process taking place, I do not want to politicize that issue. It is not my style." He called the controversy "a serious issue" on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday as well,...

Iglesias told a news conference he had informed King Felipe VI of "our desire to form a government of change with the Socialists and the United Left" and that he would seek the post of deputy prime minister.

    Leaders of Venezuela's opposition are claiming victory ahead of official results in Sunday's crucial legislative elections that could alter the country's balance of power after 17 years of socialist rule. Hours after polls closed, several opposition leaders took to the Internet to announce that they had won a majority of seats in the National Assembly for the first time since 1998. But with no official results released and the ruling socialist party not commenting, their claims could not be confirmed. "The results are as we expected. Venezuela won," former presidential candidate Henrique Capriles said on Twitter. "With great humility, serenity...

    So Brussels is on lockdown due to the heightened terror threat. Trains have been canceled, people have been told to stay away from crowded areas, meaning that the center is deserted and sporting events have been postponed. It's no surprise really, because about half a mile northwest of Brussels' city center lies the shabby suburb of Molenbeek. It is one of Brussels' nineteen districts. This run down area of the Belgian capital has become the epicenter of a media storm during the past week as a number of the terrorists behind the appalling Paris attacks came from Molenbeek.

    In the very midst of the Paris bloodbath Friday night, Salon Magazine published a shameful piece suggesting that the blame for such horrific terrorist attacks falls on the “incendiary rhetoric” of America’s conservative movement and “right-wing media” for using strong language against progressives.Such rhetoric, Salon warned, “does not float in the ether of the public discourse, harmless and unacknowledged. No, it does in fact lead to action.”In a bizarre comparison, the author of the rambling essay, Chauncey Devega, said that conservative criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement necessarily leads to violent uprisings like the one in Paris, and therefore...

Because of the stunning tragedy in Paris, the debate discussion has been modified to focus largely on foreign policy and national security. The RNC, unsurprisingly, believes the Democrats' decision to host a debate on the weekend is an obvious attempt to shield Hillary Clinton from any kind of challenge on her path to the primary. Here's Communications Director Sean Spicer's take on it: If a tree falls in the middle...

    In days of yore the Lie was 'No one is talking about Confiscation', but something has changed as of late. Such talk is now common amongst the national Socialist elite despite the lack of a shooting being prevalent in the media. It is axiomatic that one does not call for confiscation until its foundational steps are in place: Intergalactic Background Checks and Registration. The reason should be clear to everyone, people need to be fooled into registering their firearms with the solemn promise that it won't lead to confiscation. This was the case in the UK for example, were the...

    Former Sen. Rick Santorum said on the radio Wednesday that the first Democratic debate revealed all the candidates to be socialists. He made the comments in response to a question about an exchange on capitalism between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. Clinton said at the Democratic debate Tuesday that at times we have to save capitalism from itself and that corporations should share more of their profits with workers. Ive been around it for a long time, Santorum, who is running for the Republican presidential nomination, said of the debate in an interview with Rose Unplugged on AM1250 The Answer....

    To better advance their causes, liberals should follow these modest Ten Commandments to live the rather "progressive" lives that they advocate for the rest of us. The best way for liberals to advance their various causes would be to take a pledge to live the rather progressive lives that they advocate. Here are a modest Ten Commandments to lend them credibility in the eyes of the American people. For the entire list: http://pjmedia.com/victordavishanson/liberals-ten-commandments/

    First Sanders, now Trumkaare there any capitalists left on the left? On the most recent Meet the Press, Bernie Sanders made news when Chuck Todd asked him if he was a capitalist. "No," shot back Sanders, "I'm a democratic socialist." Mark Halperin was obviously taken enough by the question as to pose it on today's With All Due Respect to Richard Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO. "No, I'm a trade unionist, quite frankly," retorted Trumka. When Halperin tried to pursue the issue, Trumka laughed it off, calling it a "silly question." Silly? The biggest union boss in America opposes the...

    There's a reason Jonah Goldberg referred to Progressivism as "nice fascism": you will be forced to comply. For your own good. And Warmists are primarily Progressives (UK Telegraph) We might think that a semi-secret, international conference of top judges, held in the highest courtroom in Britain, to propose that it should be made illegal for anyone to question the scientific evidence for man-made global warming, was odd enough to be worthy of front-page coverage. Last week I mentioned that the Prince of Wales had sent a message to this conference calling for the UNs forthcoming climate meeting in Paris to...

    AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka told Hardball host Chris Matthews, I dont know what the difference is between a Democratic Socialist and a Democrat. During an appearance on the MSNBC program last week, Trumka was asked by Matthews about Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. [] I dont think people care, Trumka replied. I dont know what the difference is between a Democratic Socialist and a Democrat. I dont really know what the difference is and I think most voters dont care.

    [Summary: Obama lies casually. He says what is expedient at the moment. This tendency is disfiguring his presidency and harming the country.]-- Muslims have a provision in their religious doctrine that allows them to lie. Indeed, they are in some situations commanded to lie, for example, if a lie will help Islam. This doctrine is fully articulated in many places. Lying is thought of as part of Islams toolbox for conquering non-Muslims. However, this doctrine (taqiyya) is also used between Sunnis and Shias, as each may be commanded to lie to the other. Its easy to see that taqiyya could...

    The House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) was created in 1938 to investigate alleged disloyalty and subversive activities on the part of private citizens, public employees, and those organizations suspected of having Communist ties. And The work of the committee continued to decline in importance throughout the late 1950s and early 1960s until the committee itself was renamed the House Internal Security Committee in 1969, prefiguring its eventual abolition in 1975. We all know of what many believed as overreach and showmanship by Joe McCarthy during the life of this committee. McCarthyism is the term born from that era, and a...

    If the Republican establishment thinks it has a problem with Donald Trump, just wait until the Pope visits America next month and endorses socialist Bernie Sanders for president. Such a move, which is not beyond the realm of possibility, would put the head of the Roman Catholic Church firmly in the Democratic Party camp during a critical election year in which Republicans hope to turn back the tide of transformational Marxism represented by President Barack Obama. A story on a Catholic news site, "Is Pope Francis going to endorse...Bernie Sanders?!", looks seriously at the possibility. The article noted that the...

    Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (D) has said that socialist policies characteristic of countries like Sweden should be implemented in the U.S. As a Swede, I would strongly advise against this. The worldwide socialist movement praises the Scandinavian countries for their high living standards and welfare. Easy to do for someone who has never lived in Sweden or read a book on Swedish history. First off: The success of Sweden predates the welfare state. In reality, the economy began to fall behind in the 1960s when the state rapidly expanded. Moreover, Sweden enjoyed the highest growth in the industrialized world between...
