The Incomprehensible Horror of Venezuelan Socialism

International Liberty

It’s now a pattern. I’ll come across a soul-sapping story about terrible suffering caused by statism in Venezuela and I think the country has hit rock bottom. Such as back in September, when I read about people literally starving.

But then I will read another report about incredible misery and realize that the socialist regime is even worse than I thought. Such as back in December, when I read about economic deprivation ruining sex for the women of the country.

And then I find another horrifying example of how big government destroys lives and I’m forced to reconsider the definition of failure. Such as last month, when I read about criminal gangs using food to recruit children.

Despite this pattern, I’m going out on a limb and asserting that nothing possibly could be worse than this Washington Poststory of Venezuelan parents giving up their children because they can’t afford…

Wall Street Whistleblower: Clinton Foundation is the ‘Largest Charitable Fraud in American History’

BUNKERVILLE | God, Guns and Guts Comrades!

This is not a new story, but one we shouldn’t let slip by. B-Ville has been on it:

Clinton Foundation slush fund – less than 15 percent goes to charitable grants

What really was happening with the Russia “reset” starting in 2009? Large contributions to political campaigns come with strings attached.

Evidence already in the public domain shows that certain Russians found common cause with green investors, as Peter Schweizer’s work for the Government Accountability Institute explained in…

#RELEASE THE MEMO – Where is the Media? Democrats bury their head in the sand over FISA abuse

BUNKERVILLE | God, Guns and Guts Comrades!

Anyone who has been watching Fox know that the Democrat’s  Russian House of Cards is or should be about to fall and with it take some good ole boys with it. Nothing at all in any of the MSM press. I slid over to Morning Joe for a nanosecond, about as much as anyone should tolerate and they are still trumpeting Russia Russia Russia and Trump’s collusion. Not one Democrat member has chosen to look at the documents according to reports. Bury your head in the sand Dems, the chickens are about to come home to roost.
“I viewed the classified report from House Intel relating to the FBI, FISA abuses, the infamous Russian dossier, and so-called “Russian collusion.” What I saw is absolutely shocking. This report needs to be released–now. Americans deserve the truth.” #ReleaseTheMemo

Clintons and their ‘love’ for Haiti -Hillary calls out Trump’s remarks? NYC Protests!

BUNKERVILLE | God, Guns and Guts Comrades!

Falling victim to one of the various bugs, I found myself laying fallow. In an effort to distract myself, I turned on the T.V. and ended up watching a psychotic press roll out Trump’s so-called victims of his latest snapshot view America’s immigration policies. Trump’s premise was that America could become the very sh*t hole similar to much of Africa and our neighbors to the South if our borders are not secure and immigration was not based on merit. Seemed simple enough. Having suffered the slings and arrows of Hillary during the campaign— a deplorable and irredeemable human being– I just wasn’t prepared to take it on the chin again. Right now, it is impossible to even turn on the news.. but as I bid adieu to the topic, let us not forget Clinton’s and their race relations. Specifically Haiti. I include a terrific clip that exposes the Clintons for the…

Comey Memo Edits Warrant Indictments

Socialism is not the Answer

Flopping Aces

by Daniel John Sobieski

Now we know that not only did Hillary Clinton show intent in her handling of classified materials routed through her private server, but that former FBI Director James Comey and his team showed intent in letting her get away with it to the detriment of American national security.

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, in a Thursday letter to current FBI Director Christopher Wray, reveals how edits to Comey’s exoneration memo went beyond changing “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless” but edited out content that shows the FBI knew Hillary was intentionally in violation of the Espionage Act but that, since the decision to exonerate her had already been made, they had to submit to the annals of history a lie they agreed upon:

Newly released documents obtained by Fox News reveal that then-FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement on…

Journalistic Alchemy: Washington Post Magically Transforms a Spending Cut into a Tax Increase

International Liberty

I don’t focus much on media bias because journalists generally aren’t dishonest. Instead, they choose which stories to highlight or downplay based on what advances their political agenda. Though every so often I’ll highlight an example of where bias leads to an egregious (maybe even deliberately dishonest) mistake.

Now we have an addition to that collection from a WonkBlog column in the Washington Post. The piece starts…

Doctor mentioned in Wikileaks Clinton E-mail dead, stabs himself in the chest??

BUNKERVILLE | God, Guns and Guts Comrades!

The death toll mounts for this years victims of knowing the Clintons. The police respond to a 911 call for an assault. Found dead with a self-inflicted knife. Sounds about right:

An acclaimed New York Trauma surgeon was found dead this week in his apartment.
Police said he stabbed himself in the chest.
They found him on his bathroom floor.
ABC News reported:

“An acclaimed trauma surgeon was found dead with a knife in his torso Sunday in his Park Avenue apartment in a suspected suicide, New York City police said.

Dr. Dean Lorich, 54, was the associate director of the orthopedic trauma service at the Hospital for Special Surgery who treated Bono in 2014 after the U2 frontman was badly injured in a cycling accident in Central Park.

Lorich was also a professor at Weill Cornell Medical College.”

His death is being investigated as an apparent suicide, a New…

Jerusalem: Why Trump Succeeded Where Others Failed

THAT'S WHAT I'M SCREAMING

Jerusalem: Why Trump Succeeded Where Others Failed

After months of stalling and waiting, President Trump finally officially recognized Jerusalem as the Eternal Capital of Israel. He further directed his cabinet and the State Department to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The transition will take time, but it’s underway. Of course, the Palestinian terrorists and their liberal enablers are screaming and rioting in the streets over this move. But it’s about time it happened. The United States’ military victories in the Middle East against ISIS, plus the growing awareness of the violent nature of the Islamic political cult, have wakened the world to the high stakes in the region. For these reasons, I respect why President Trump issued the formal declaration now rather than in January or February.

We need to stand with Israel, and we need to ensure that the capital of the only stable liberal democracy in the Middle…

Lying to FBI Is Illegal; How About the FBI Lying to Us?

THAT'S WHAT I'M SCREAMING

By: Jeff Crouere

Lying to FBI Is Illegal; How About the FBI Lying to Us?

While the liberal media is celebrating the announcement that former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, a bigger scandal was practically ignored.

On Thursday, Judicial Watch released 29 pages of FBI emails regarding the inexcusable June 27, 2016 meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac of the Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, AZ. This meeting was not accidental, as Clinton purposely delayed the takeoff of his aircraft to arrange the supposedly impromptu encounter with the Attorney General.

According to Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, “These new FBI documents show the FBI was more concerned about a whistle-blower who told the truth about the infamous Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting than the scandalous meeting itself.”

In the midst of a FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s “extremely careless” handling of top secret email communications…
