Hey Bernie Bros, you REALLY want socialism? Take a look at how it works in Cuba

From Turning Point USA:

“Turning Point USA traveled to Cuba to investigate the true realities of what a generation of full Socialism has done to the once-thriving Cuban population.

What did we discover? Everything you have ever seen about Cuba is a lie. #SocialismSucks

Listen to what the residents of Cuba have to say. Starts at 8:50 mark. And right after the two gentlemen speak, watch and see how the kids are suffering. The people there are suffering.

This is NOT what we want for America.

Bookmark and watch when you have 15 spare minutes. It’s really sad and depressing.

And share with any socialist-leaning people you may know.

Poor Bernie Bro supporters are FORCED to participate in capitalism

Always the victim…

Heaven forbid one of the Bernie Sanders, socialist-loving fools think for themselves on how they can survive in America without being FORCED to participate in the system that so many foreigners flock to for a better life.

Here’s a couple hints on how to remove yourself from this FORCED system:

Ditch your capitalism-made Smartphone. You CAN survive without checking how many likes your most-recent Instagram post received. You DON’T need Facebook to filter #fakenews. No one will die if they don’t see your most recent tweet. The world will not end if you are cut off from social media. If you need to communicate electronically, use the community-owned computer at your local library.

Get rid of your fossil fuel car. Most of the Bernie Bros have probably already done this and use public transportation or Uber (no fossil fuel vehicles, of course). In order to better the community, one must eliminate the private-vehicle methods of transportation. Better yet, make sure your transportation method eliminates the amount of capitalism-made vehicles on the road: Use the “passenger-garbage-trucks” method that Venezuelans enjoys!

Venezuela’s efficient transportation method!

Get off the grid. What do you need electricity for anyway (you don’t need to power that capitalism-made Smartphone)? Don’t you want to save the environment? After all, if North Koreans can survive on only a few hours a day worth of electricity, can’t you do the same in socialist-solidarity with them?

North Korea doing their part to save the environment…

Embrace the Medicare for All: Since Obamacare didn’t solve America’s health care crisis, socialized healthcare MUST be the solution. Because you deem healthcare as a right, that means a socialized system will be better, correct? I know the capitalism-run healthcare industry isn’t perfect yet you Bernie Bros are resourceful folk. In order to benefit the community, make sure to plan for your next hospital visit and bring your go-to hospital bag: One that is ready, waiting and nearby stocked with pillows, sheets and medicine.

A lovely and beautiful socialized hospital in socialist Cuba

Learn how to grow a garden. Grow your own food instead of buying it at that evil WalMart! Plus with the inevitable mismanagement of a government-run economy, food will become scarce. Tilling and planting seeds will become a valuable skill. Better yet, in order to save the environment you can acquire a taste for bugs. Or zoo animals.

Then there’s always this option: MOVE. Take your socialism-loving butt to Venezuela, Cuba or North Korea. No one is holding you here at gun point. You’re free to leave whenever your heart desires.

You can survive dipsh*t, without being FORCED to participate in our capitalism. Get back to me after you’ve tried my suggested methods and let me know how much you enjoyed the socialist methods.

I eagerly await to hear about your enlightened experiences.

Congrats, Seattle! You got rid of a socialist and gained a community organizer with a track record of “flash mobs”

Oh boy Seattle, you are in for another fun ride with the new city council member you just elected in District 3.

If you believe that anything is going to change with the repeat offenders, homeless crisis, homeless criminal activity and police response time, well, good luck with that optimism. You’re going to need it.

Bye, bye Socialist Sawant

Egan Orion is apparently going to defeat the incumbent socialist Kshama Sawant for Seattle City Council. In 2016, citizens in Seattle elected the socialist Sawant to council. Read about her radical views here.

On Tuesday, Seattle voters swapped her out for another far-left progressive – Egan Orion. His Twitter bio: “Writer, PrideFest and BBIA Executive Director, small business owner, and community activist running for Seattle City Council District 3.”

Hello Egan! Photo from his Twitter profile

His background/qualifications? From his web site:

“My grandfather was a Teamster who moved to Capitol Hill in the 1930’s to start a family. My parents were both teachers, but they wouldn’t be able to purchase a home in today’s Seattle. I will fight for living wage jobs and affordable housing options that protect and welcome diversity and dynamism in our neighborhoods.

I have a track record—from flash mobs to PrideFest—of creating opportunities and events that celebrate our diversity and unity. We are a dynamic, increasingly young and diverse city that needs to celebrate and protect what makes this a great place to live, work, and play.”

Egan does understand the seriousness of the homeless crisis in his demorat-run city. His solutions?

Build more affordable housing. Expand all types of housing. Change “Backyard Cottage” legislation. Stronger renter protections. Expand 24/7 low-barrier, high supervisions shelters. Prioritize treatment on-demand for mental health and substance use disorder.

All good ideas, yet ones that have been in place in Seattle for some time. All proposed solutions and millions of dollars spent have had a minimal impact on reducing homelessness in this demorat-run city.

At least Seattle voters had the good sense to get rid of the socialist. They’ve now got a replacement progressive. I’m not holding my breath that much is going to change in that failing city.

Socialist Ocasio-Cortez unveils anti-poverty bill that gives illegal aliens access to taxpayer benefits

Claro que si.

From Daily Mail: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is promoting a bill that would make all housing units in the country rent stabilized while giving illegal immigrants access to health care and other social welfare services.

The first-term House Democrat from New York this past week rolled out her six-bill proposal that has been given the title ‘A Just Society’.

The set of bills ‘aims to combat the greatest threats to our country, our democracy, and our planet: economic inequality and climate change,’ the Bronx native writes on her web site.

Ocasio-Cortez wants to adjust the federal poverty line so that it takes into account factors like geography, health insurance costs, and modern living essentials which would include internet access.

AOC also wants to cap the amount that landlords can increase rent.

Under her proposal, landlords would only be able to raise rents by a maximum of 3 per cent every year – or in line with the increase in the consumer price index – whichever is greater.

The set of proposed laws would also allow anyone convicted of a crime to gain access to federal poverty programs.

A study by the Brookings Institute found that nearly half of freed former inmates have no reported earnings in the first several years after leaving prison while half of those who do find work earn less than $10,090 a year.

Formerly incarcerated people are also often denied government benefits because they have criminal records, thus perpetuating the cycle of poverty.

‘I think this really starts to approach, head on, economic injustice in America,’ Ocasio-Cortez told The New York Times last week. We are at our richest point that we’ve ever been, but we’ve also been our most unequal.’

Perhaps one of the more controversial elements of her proposal is to grant those without legal status in the United States unfettered access to social services. ‘Notwithstanding any other provision of law … an individual who is an alien (without regard to the immigration status of that alien) may not be denied any Federal public benefit solely on the basis of the individual’s immigration status,’ her proposal reads.

Read the rest of the story here.

CNN asks Ilhan Omar how her pilot jobs program will be paid; she gives a socialist answer

Scroll ahead to the 12:52 mark (so you don’t have to listen to all of Ilhan’s “ums” and her bashing President Trump) where CNN host Erin Burnett asks Ilhan about the bill she’s introduced to create a pilot program to guarantee a job for anyone who wants one.

Burnett asks Ilhan what would be the “number one thing she would do to pay for that.”

Ilhan’s answer: “It will pay for itself.”

Yeah, she didn’t major in economics.

Chicago Teachers Union group take trip to Venezuela, praise socialist leader

The American public education system at work: Teachers crowdfunding a trip to Venezuela only to come back and teach your children about the greatness of socialism.

From MSN: The recent trip to Venezuela by a group calling itself a Chicago Teachers Union delegation has upset some union members and expats who question the point of the tour and take issue with the group’s praise of the country’s disputed government.

The four travelers, who crowdfunded the July trip under the banner of the CTU, met with Venezuelan government officials and educators, visited a commune and were featured in local media.

They wrote online about wanting to connect with Venezuelan teachers, students and unionists, criticized U.S. economic sanctions against the South American nation and wrote admiringly of its socialism, its communes and high literacy rates.

Critics say the group glossed over Venezuela’s ongoing political and economic crises and were excessively complimentary of President Nicolas Maduro, whose administration has been accused in recent United Nations reports of “grave” human rights violations and violence against dissenters.

“I am appalled a delegation representing themselves as CTU went to Venezuela, not to support striking teachers, not to object to human rights violations, but to go on what appears to be a state-chaperoned propaganda tour,” said Karen Moody, a teacher and union member.

And though the four travelers regularly called themselves a “CTU delegation” online, the union representing close to 25,000 people has sought to distance itself from the trip, stating the CTU did not endorse, sponsor or fund the trip.

Asked on WTTW’s “Chicago Tonight” last week about “some controversy” surrounding the excursion, union President Jesse Sharkey said: “Members go all kinds of places in the summer. This was neither an official trip nor something that was funded by the union. This is a group of people who are members of the CTU who decided to go to Venezuela.

Yet, the official CTU Twitter account retweeted some of the group’s updates, including a blog post titled “Introduction to CTU Delegation to Venezuela.”

CTU also retweeted another post by teacher Sarah Chambers, one of the travelers and a member of the CTU executive board, which read: “While staying in #Venezuela, we didn’t see a single homeless person. USA is the richest country in the world; yet, there are homeless people everywhere. Over 17k CPS students are homeless … This is why @CTULocal1 is fighting for fair housing #CTUAgainstVezIntervention.”

Not a homeless person in Venezuela…

That prompted a rebuke from another Twitter user: “What the Delegation fails to acknowledge is they used the CTU name to raise the funds, to set up meetings, to blog their ‘findings.’ This was never voted on. They don’t get it. Irresponsible and reckless.”

Chambers, who appears to have made her Twitter account private, responded by referencing a resolution passed by CTU’s House of Delegates to “oppose the invasion of Venezuela.”

She added in her tweet: “Have you visited Venezuela & spoke to 100s there? As a teacher, I teach my students to be critical thinkers, to get primary sources, listen to ppl’s stories & do research before just believing any news. I suggest you do the same.”

Blackout in Venezuela

When contacted by the Tribune, Chambers deferred to the group’s blog, Radical Educator Collective. The three who traveled with her – two other educators and a union organizer – did not respond to interview requests. Online, the group was clear the union wasn’t helping pay for the trip. At least 55 people donated to a GoFundMe campaign titled “Send CTU Strikers to Venezuela,” an apparent reference to their involvement in the CPS charter school strikes last school year.

In the photo accompanying the campaign, the three educators are wearing CTU hats. In comments, some donors expressed solidarity. One $50 donor wrote of admiration for his colleagues: “Proud of the CTU for their brave and visionary anti-imperialist resolution and enactment of ‘teacher-to-teacher’ solidarity between Chicago and Venezuelan teachers!”

A July 9 blog post titled “Introduction to CTU Delegation to Venezuela” states, “This blog represents the members delegation of the Chicago Teacher’s Union that are currently in Venezuela to learn from educators and activists on the ground. We are three rank and file charter school teachers and one CTU organizer. We organized this delegation ourselves and fundraised for the trip independent of the CTU.”

In the latest post, one member of the group wrote that she’d wanted to observe a method for teaching reading that combines numeracy and literacy skills. She was also curious about if and how educators incorporated the country’s social movements into their curriculum, she wrote.

They visited a commune and talked to educators involved with Mision Robinson, a social welfare program to improve literacy started under former President Hugo Chavez.

Though the group was inspired by the resolution, the opinions on the blog are their own, they wrote.

Ana Gil-Garcia, who co-founded the Illinois Venezuelan Alliance and teaches in the College of Education at Northeastern Illinois University, said the trip was unacceptable, though it would be different if they’d gone on their own, without using the CTU brand.

“Once you go there as a delegation of a very powerful union like the Chicago Teachers Union, it’s questionable,” Gil-Garcia said, adding the trip could come off as the union endorsing the Maduro regime, which she said has killed and imprisoned opponents and contributed to widespread food shortages in the country.

“That’s what makes me really upset about it,” she said. “The Chicago Teachers Union should be very objective because the membership is formed by people with different ways of thinking.”

Demorat socialist Julia Salazar lies about growing up in “poverty”

From Daily Mail: Julia Salazar — the New York State senator accused of embellishing her radical socialist credentials with tall tales about her working class, immigrant roots — was reportedly living off a huge trust fund while launching her campaign.

The 28-year-old, who represents Brooklyn, reported in campaign finance disclosures that she was worth $10 million, the New York Post reported.

Salazar subsequently claimed the figure was an error, telling the paper that she misread the sheet, and that the family trust fund she benefited from actually holds $400,000.

The young politician has been called out for lying about her wealth in the past, having said she had a ‘hardscrabble’ childhood, immigrated from Colombia and went to public school.

Those claims were discredited by Salazar’s brother, who revealed last year that she was in fact born in Miami, grew up in a sprawling waterfront home with a maid and three boats, attended private school in Florida and had a trust fund.

On May 15, Salazar reported to the state’s Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JCOPE) that she received $18,000 in 2018 from her deceased father Luis H. Salazar’s trust, the NY Post reported.

She classified the amount as ‘Category DDDDD’ — a code used in financial disclosures to signify amounts of ‘$10 million or more’. But she told the NY Post on Thursday that she meant to write ‘Category D’ — a range of $5,000-$20,000 — referring to the $18,000 chunk she received from the fund.

She claimed she mistook ‘10,000,000 and over,’ for ‘$10,000 and over,’ saying: ‘I looked at it in a cursory way.. I mistook the comma versus the decimal point, so it added it extra zeros.’

But she managed to follow the instructions properly on the next line, where she reported her income as a community organizer for Jews for Racial + Economic Justice — as ‘Category E,’ or $20,000–$50,000.

Salazar has been under fire for identifying as a Jew despite her family insisting she was baptized a Catholic and that none of their relatives are Jewish.

She is not actually required to disclose the value of the trust fund to the JCOPE, since she doesn’t control it. Her aunt in Colombia controls the cash stash, which benefits Salazar, her brother Alex and other unnamed family members.

She reportedly resubmitted her financial disclosure to JCOPE on July 11, noting the trust income as ‘Category D’, after a state worker notified her of the inconsistencies.

The senator told the NY Post that she used the $18,000 disbursement ‘to support myself, because I had to stop working in order to campaign, and I had to go on unpaid leave’.

‘Basically seven months of living expenses on top of savings that I had from working,’ she said, referring to her time spent running for office.

Salazar won the New York state primary on September 13 last year, beating a 16-year incumbent. She followed in the footsteps of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is also a part of the Democratic Socialists of America and beat a 10-term incumbent in the Democratic US congressional primary last June.

Salazar rallied the support of millennials in Brooklyn pushing an image of being educated and relatable, fronting with her alleged poor immigrant background.

She initially stated she was born in Colombia before backpedaling and conceding her birthplace was Miami, blaming the ‘error’ on a campaign staffer. But she continued to assert that she was born into a ‘working class’ family, was raised by a single parent and had to get a job at 14 to make ends meet.

That story unraveled as her own family members came forward to contradict her. ‘We did not struggle at all,’ Salazar’s brother Alex told DailyMail.com last September. ‘We grew up in a great place. We had a great life. We were never treated as outsiders,’ he said, pointing to the family’s material possessions which included a sprawling waterfront home and ‘three boats including a jet ski that was large enough to fit all four of us’.

He said they were still supported by their father after their parents’ divorce, and only worked as teens to learn responsibility. Their father, who died from prostate cancer in 2009, made his riches as a successful U.S. commercial and cargo pilot.

Opponents have also alleged that Salazar used to be a Republican and an anti-abortion Christian, before performing a political flip flop and declaring herself a socialist after moving to Brooklyn in 2017.

It was also revealed that in 2011 she was arrested over accusations of bank fraud by the estranged wife of former New York Mets star Keith Hernandez. Salazar later sued Hernandez’s wife Kai Hernandez who she said was trying to frame her thinking Salazar was having an affair with the baseball player.
