What are we left with if we ban anything that bothers anyone?

The answer is a paralyzed hot mess.

A “free” society is not a society that is worried about an individual’s feelings above all else.

A “free” society is a society which allows and tolerates everybody’s beliefs and feelings.

anyt 14

That being said, according to Brian Flood of Fox News, “The New York Times says airing the national anthem on TV could trigger viewers who hear ‘political overtones.’”

“Trigger?”

“Political overtones?”

anyt 5

Are we getting “political overtones” confused with patriotic overtones?

What is “political” about hearing and/or seeing the national anthem unless you’re anti-American?

anyt 13

“The New York Times ‘poo-pooed’ the long-standing tradition of television stations airing The Star-Spangled Banner because some night owl viewers could be offended by the ‘politically charged’ national anthem.”

Wait…, what?

The New York Times “poo-pooed?”

Well, like I said, they are creating a “hot mess” after all.

Again…, if you’re “offended” by the national anthem and consider it “politically charged,” then you’re probably either a very confused liberal…, someone here illegally in the first place…, or you are an enemy of our country…, and in any case I’m glad you’re offended.

anyt 4

“The piece, written by culture reporter Julia Jacobs, is headlined ‘Local TV Revives a Bygone Tradition: Airing the National Anthem,’ and declares that the song can ‘be a dividing line’ for some Americans.”

anyt 1

“Culture reporter?”  Why, how snooty and pretentious of you!

“The Times [Ms. Jacobs] noted that ‘one of popular culture’s generational divides’ is whether or not you are old enough to remember the days when ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ aired on television stations. The national anthem was historically played late at night, going back to the advent of television, typically amid visuals of patriotic imagery before the station signed off until the next morning.”

Oh really?

THIS is a generational divide of our culture?

I hardly think so, seeing that most of the people under 30 don’t even watch what us older folk would consider TV per se.  They watch things on their TV, but they don’t watch typical TV channel broadcasts, or even satellite or cable for that matter.

‘“Now, the early morning hours are filled with rebroadcasts and infomercials, eliminating any practical reason for a formal sign off,’ the Times [Ms. Jacobs] wrote.”

What kind of imbecile has nothing better to worry about than whether they’re playing the national anthem on TV at 4:00 AM in the morning or not?

That’s really digging deep to promote your anti-American ways!

anyt 2

“Some stations have revived the tradition but the Times wrote that some viewers ‘might hear political overtones’ as a result. Gray Television, CBS and Nexstar Media Group have led the way, with the National Anthem now played on more than 350 stations across America, according to the Times.”

‘“The decision to revive the anthem tradition comes at a time when overt allegiance to The Star-Spangled Banner has become one of the lines that separate blue and red America,’ the Times reporter wrote.”

Why say “blue and red?”  Why not say liberals and conservatives, or democrats and republicans?

Let’s not be afraid to name those who are overtly anti-America and those who are overtly pro-America.

Let’s draw a clear line and let people choose what side they’re on.

anyt 6

“Author, Tim Young asks, ‘Should it shock anyone at this point that the New York Times is trying to get people to be outraged at the airing of the National Anthem?’”

anyt 12

‘“It’s inspiring that local news is returning our National Anthem to an important place in our culture.  It’s astonishing that The Times would see that as a bad thing,’ Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor told Fox News. ‘But if you pay close attention to the story, the paper admits that the left, including journalists, doesn’t like the national anthem.  That shows exactly who and what they really are.’”

Yes it does, Mr. Gainor…, yes it does.

“The paper admits that television executives haven’t heard many complaints and feedback has been ‘overwhelmingly positive,’ but that tidbit is buried roughly 1,400 words into the story.”

anyt 9

“Political satirist and author Tim Young told Fox News that this story “truly reveals the mindset” of the Gray Lady [“the Gray Lady” is a nickname for The New York Times newspaper].”

‘“Should it shock anyone at this point that the New York Times is trying to get people to be outraged at the airing of the national anthem? Their piece is written as if viewers should be skeptical of every element of the song and accompanying video,’ Young said. ‘They don’t like America and its anthem and they want you to dislike it as well.’”

anyt 11

“In the span of a week, the Washington Post calls a terrorist psychopath a ‘religious scholar’ and the Times is upset about the national anthem being played. These are supposed to be America’s top two news publications, and they seemingly hate America.”

anyt 10

What if I said I find The New York Times and The Washington Post offensive?

Would they maintain their integrity and shut down the publication of their newspapers?

Of course not.

People who find liberal speech or actions offensive are dismissed out of hand and ignored by the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

In this fascist, liberal socialist world, they are promoting, the arbiters of what is deemed offensive are the ones who wield the power.

And “they…,” “the ones…,” would be the anti-Americans…, the liberals…, the democrats.

ABC News and the Jeffrey Epstein case…, just another example of “the fake news media” tailoring what “news” they want you to hear…, or to not hear! 

In this recent case, we have learned that ABC News quashed a story about Jeffrey “Mr. Pedophile” Epstein and his perverted partners in crime, Bill “Slick Willie” Clinton and “Britain’s finest,” Prince Andrew, the Duke of York.

aep 4

Appearing in supporting roles were George Stephanopoulos (former White House Communications Director and Senior advisor to the president under Bill Clinton, and now chief anchor and political correspondent on ABC) and Alan Dershowitz (a prominent lawyer who was on the defense teams for O.J. Simpson, Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein).

aep 8

aep 9

You obviously lean towards those with quite a high “sleaze factor” when selecting your clients, don’t you, Mr. Dershowitz?!

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “ABC News anchor Amy Robach was caught on a hot mic claiming ‘network honchos’ killed a story that would have exposed claims that now-deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein forced an alleged victim to have sex with Prince Andrew.”

aep 6

“Network honchos,” huh?

More like “network puppets/tools.”

Don’t these “people” and their enablers just make you sick?

I know they make me sick.

On a side note…, whatever happened to that #METOO movement?

I guess women’s rights only go so far.

Anyway…, “Robach filmed an interview with Prince Andrew accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre in 2015 that never aired, and she vented about ABC killing the story during a ‘moment of frustration’ that was published Tuesday by Project Veritas.”

aep 7

Note: For more information on “Project Veritas,” please refer to my blog from October 31, 2019, “CNN exposed as propaganda arm for the democrats!”

“ABC News president James Goldston recently dined with members of the royal family, including Prince Charles, according to Page Six. In the leaked footage, Robach complained that ABC would not air her sit down with Giuffre – who has claimed Epstein paid her to have sex with Prince Andrew, although the prince denies the allegations.”

‘“The Palace [Buckingham Palace] found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways,’ said ABC News anchor Amy Robach.”

“Giuffre told NPR in August that she ‘viewed the ABC interview as a potential game-changer’ and said the network never explained why it didn’t air.  ABC News has said it didn’t meet its standards.”

“Didn’t meet its standards?!”

Oh…, now all of a sudden they have “standards?!”

Where were these journalistic “standards” when they reported on wild and unsubstantiated Russian collusion nonsense on a nightly basis?

Where were these journalistic “standards” when they reported on wild unsubstantiated claims regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh?

The list could go on.

The point is, in the world of the fake news media, “journalistic standards” means the proper application of the liberal propaganda of the day.

aep 10

And what about the rest of the fake news media and this story?

“Fox News found no coverage on CNN, MSNBC, CBS News, or NBC News from noon through midnight ET on Tuesday while the story was lighting up social media. During that same time frame, Fox News covered the scandal on five different programs, including its entire primetime lineup.”

‘“That there has been so little coverage about ABC avoiding the Epstein story demonstrates again that mainstream media too often make news judgment based on sociocultural or political implications rather than journalistic values,’” DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News.”

adebate 9

Like I said…, “Just another example of ‘the fake news media’ tailoring what ‘news’ they want you to hear…, or to not hear!

“During the NBC interview, Giuffre repeated accusations she has made in court papers that when she was 17 in 2001 she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew. A photo released by a New York appeals court in August showed Andrew with his arm around Giuffre’s bare waist.”

aep 3

“Giuffre said it was taken in the apartment of Epstein’s longtime girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, in 2001.”

Please note that if Ghislaine Maxwell isn’t already dead, she will be experiencing an accidental suicide very soon.

Just sayin’.

“Ghislaine woke me up in the morning and said, ‘You’re going to meet a prince today.’ I didn’t know at that point I was going to be trafficked to that prince,’ Giuffre told NBC News three years after her interview with ABC that never aired.”

‘“Ghislaine said [Prince Andrew’s] coming back to the house and I want you do to for him what you do for Epstein,’ Giuffre said in the interview. ‘I couldn’t believe it.’”

“Giuffre said she and Andrew had sex two more times. The encounters happened in Epstein’s New York apartment and at his Virgin Islands estate, she alleges.”

“A Buckingham Palace spokesperson has emphatically denied Giuffre’s allegations against Andrew.”

Of course they did.

Good show!  Bloody good show!

CNN exposed as propaganda arm for the democrats!

Brian Flood of Fox News reports, “CNN ‘whistleblower’ claims network is ‘pumping out propaganda.’

Like I’ve said before, one good “whistleblower” deserves another!

“Tweeeeet!”

averitas 2

averitas 1

“According to ‘Project Veritas [Veritas meaning ‘truth’],’ a conservative activist group…, undercover recordings made by an alleged ‘whistleblower’ capture CNN employees casually confirming the network’s anti-Trump bias and show company president Jeff Zucker telling top news executives to focus solely on impeachment even at the expense of other important news, according to the conservative activist group that posted the bombshell footage online.”

averitas 4

“Project Veritas, whose founder, James O’Keefe, describes himself as a ‘guerrilla journalist’ — built up the release on social media with an ‘#ExposeCNN’ hashtag, and Monday published the first segment of what is billed as a multi-part series. The video features Cary Poarch, who claims he was a satellite uplink technician at CNN’s Washington Bureau before, he says, his ‘dream job’ quickly turned into a nightmare due to CNN’s blatant bias.”

“Poarch allegedly recorded ‘several’ of Zucker’s conference calls, in which he claims Zucker runs the daily meeting ‘with an iron fist’ aimed directly at ‘hammering Trump’ or ‘Republicans in general.’ Poarch told O’Keefe that several high-powered CNN executives join Zucker on the daily call, including senior vice president of newsgathering Virginia Moseley and political director David Chalian.”

averitas 5

“Zucker is also heard telling staff to call out Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and encouraging CNN on-air personalities to attack Fox News.”

“In the clip, Poarch said he decided to wear a hidden camera because of CNN’s perceived bias, and that he secretly recorded Zucker’s 9 a.m. rundown conference call because the network was ‘pumping out propaganda.’”

“It’s basically me wanting the news to be what they used to be — news — and not infotainment or a game show or chasing the ratings,” Poarch told O’Keefe. “CNN purports it to be facts first and that’s clearly not the case.

averitas 6

averitas 8

“I noticed after… that there was a strong group-think that permeated through the halls and that everyone was on board the ‘I hate Trump Train.’”

“The video also showed someone identified as a CNN media coordinator Nick Neville being secretly recorded.  ‘Jeff Zucker, basically the president of CNN, has a personal vendetta against Trump… it’s not gonna be positive for Trump. [Zucker] hates him. He’s going to be negative,’ the person identified as Neville said in the highly edited video.”

averitas 11

“CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”

That’s odd…, NOT!

For the followers and readers of MrEricksonRules, none of this comes as a surprise.

All the Veritas Project is doing is confirming for us what we already knew:  That CNN is a propaganda arm for the democrats, an enemy of The President and an enemy of the American people.

Who are these “reporters” trying to kid with their “liberal spin?”

These libs just never miss an opportunity to try and change history in their favor.

In this case, in the favor of anti-American Muslims, Islamic extremists and anti-Americans in general.

Oh yeah.  Don’t think for one minute that this was an honest mistake or a poor choice of words.

This was an intentionally, deceitfully, crafted attempt to rewrite history.

So what exactly are we talking about here?

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “The New York Times caused an uproar on Wednesday with a now-deleted tweet and now-updated story that originally said ‘airplanes’ were responsible for the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001.

fakenyt 7

‘“18 years have passed since airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center. Today, families will once again gather and grieve at the site where more than 2000 people died,’ the Times’ verified Twitter account wrote in a message accompanying a story about 9/11 victims being remembered at Ground Zero.”

Those damn airplanes!

They should all be banned!

“The 9/11 anniversary message was immediately met with harsh criticism and was swiftly deleted.”

‘“We’ve deleted an earlier tweet to this story and have edited for clarity. The story has also been updated,’ the Times tweeted.”

“Edited for clarity,” huh?

fakenyt 6

The author of the tweet wouldn’t happen to be a friend or relative of Rep. Ilhan Omar, would they? Or how about a friend or associate of Barack (“Obama Bin Lying”) Obama?

fakenyt 8

“The updated tweet to promote the story said, ‘18 years after nearly 3,000 people were lost, families of those killed in the terror attacks will gather at the 9/11 memorial. There will be a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., then the names of the dead — one by one — will be recited.’”

“The story, by James Barron, was also changed to note that “terrorists commandeered” the airplanes that brought down the World Trade Center.”

This “reporter/tweeter,” must have watched too much of “Thomas the Tank Engine,” Disney’s “Cars,” or Disney’s “Planes!”  Planes, trains and automobiles do not act on their own volition.  A person or persons are responsible for the operation of them.

fakenyt 1

fakenyt 2

Also, the 2,977 people killed in New York, at the Pentagon and in a field in rural Pennsylvania is considerably closer to 3,000 than 2,000.

Like 977 people closer.

Idiot.

Not only did the New York Times try to take the terrorists off the hook, they tried to downplay and diminish the number of people who lost their lives because of these Islamic extremists.

fakenyt 3

“The New York Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”

And they probably won’t respond.

‘“The @NYT says airplanes caused 9/11. Wrong. It was Muslim terrorists who waged jihad on American soil and killed thousands of our fellow countrymen in the name of their religion,’ Fox News’ Todd Starnes wrote, while Fox News contributor Mike Huckabee noted that the paper doesn’t seem to ‘have much grasp on recent history.’”

Oh, it does…, it just doesn’t like the actual history to be promoted.

‘“Twin Towers NOT brought down because “airplanes took aim” at them, but b/c radical Islamists hijacked planes & took aim at them,’ Huckabee added.”

“Many users compared the rhetoric in the Times tweet to an infamous remark made by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., earlier this year when she said ‘some people did something’ when describing the 9/11 attacks.”

I can only hope Ms. Omar becomes a bit of history as a result of the 2020 elections.

“He always says that those who control the present can rewrite the past.” ― Anne Fortier, The Lost Sisterhood

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” ― George Orwell

CNN sucks!  CNN sucks! CNN sucks!

But let me tell you something you may not know.

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news” “Communist News Network” (CNN) is having a bad week…, or should I say ANOTHER bad week?

And I’m not talking about their ratings…, which are horrible…, which goes without saying.

cnn 3

I’m referring to their collection of “on air” personalities, acting embarrassingly like the hypocritical, entitled and crybaby liberals they are.

cnn 1

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “It’s been another rough week for CNN as the network suddenly has a plethora of off-screen issues in addition to its usual ratings struggles.”

‘“Just when one thought things couldn’t get any worse for CNN, they did,’ NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck told Fox News.”

‘“In CNN’s current form, they’ve always had putrid ratings, disingenuous personalities and a pathetic inability to simply cover the news – instead fearmongering the small, anti-Trump audience into submission – but this past week was possibly the worst ever in totality.’”

cnn 2

“The liberal news network started off the week making headlines for the wrong reasons. ‘CNN Tonight’ host Don Lemon was accused in a civil suit of a sexually charged assault of a bartender in New York’s posh Hamptons area last year.”

cnn 10

cnn 9

“The same evening that the Lemon news broke, on Tuesday, video circulated of CNN political analyst April Ryan looking on while a local news editor appeared to be violently removed from an event where she was a keynote speaker.”

Yes…, violently removed by her own bodyguard!  Then when she was asked about the “KGB-like” behavior, she inexplicably said, “When I speak, I don’t have News covering my speech,” like it’s somehow her choice. And this coming from a woman who regularly flaunts her disrespect and general rudeness during the White House press conferences.

cnn 5

cnn 6

cnn12

“The Lemon and Ryan headlines came less than 24 hours after video of ‘Cuomo Prime Time’ namesake Chris Cuomo threatening a man who called him ‘Fredo’ went viral, capturing the attention of President Trump in the process.”

cnn 8

‘“This was not a good week to be CNN. In addition to its abysmal ratings, three of its top news personalities are embroiled in scandal and controversy,’ Cornell University Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson told Fox News.”

‘“In a rational world, CNN leadership would implement a dramatic course correction, but there is no sign that rationality prevails at CNN,’ he said.”

No…, no sign at all!

“While CNN defended Cuomo, the president had a different take on the profanity-filled rant.”

‘“I think what Chris Cuomo did was horrible. His language was horrible, he looked like a total out-of-control animal. He lost it,’ President Trump told reporters.”

“The CNN host is the younger brother of Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic governor of New York. But Cuomo’s outburst over being referred to as ‘Fredo,’ a reference to Fredo Corleone, the weak and facile [and stupid] brother in the movie ‘The Godfather,’ has been labeled hypocritical because several CNN personalities have used the exact reference to mock President Trump’s children.”

cnn 7

Again…, a typical liberal trait…, they can dish it out but they can’t take it.

Hypocrites, every one.

“CNN’s public relations team called the remark ‘an ethnic slur’ and Cuomo compared it to ‘the N-word’ for Italians. But CNN and the ‘Cuomo Prime Time’ host didn’t seem to think the word was some sort of vile smear in the past.”

I would say that is belittling the significance of “the N-word” to African-Americans.

“The New York Post unearthed an old video in which Cuomo playfully referred to himself as ‘Fredo’ during a 2010 radio interview and CNN’s Ana Navarro used the moniker [Fredo] to belittle Donald Trump Jr. earlier this year on Cuomo’s very own show. Cuomo didn’t reprimand Navarro for using the term that he now feels is equivalent to ‘the N-word.’ CNN anchor Jake Tapper has also used the term, while CNN legal analyst Paul Callan used it in an op-ed earlier this year.”

Apparently, just like “the N-word,” “Fredos” are allowed to call other “Fredos” Fredo.

“In fact, CNN pundits and guests have used the term “Fredo” so much that the Washington Free Beacon put together a montage of various times it was uttered on the liberal news network.”

“CNN’s most-watched program during July was “Cuomo Prime Time,” which finished No. 24 overall among cable news, behind 14 different Fox News shows and nine programs on MSNBC. It remains to be seen if the negative press will push CNN’s viewership further down the gutter, but McCall certainly doesn’t think it will help.”

“CNN’s most-watched program during July” was Chris Cuomo’s show…, and it was ranked 24th?!

No wonder they’re defending Cuomo so adamantly.  What network could afford to lose the 24th ranked show?!

And that’s ranked higher than any of their other shows?!

cnn 11

George Soros must be personally subsidizing this mess of a liberal propaganda network.

Just sayin’.

“Houck added CNN’s troubled week ‘started with Jake Tapper allowing Beto O’Rourke to say without pushback that tens of millions who voted for Donald Trump are racist and arguably condone white supremacy’ on Sunday before the Cuomo, Lemon and Ryan stories unfolded.”

‘“It was quite embarrassing,’ Houck said.”

It’s not embarrassing to the network, however, Mr. Houck, nor is it embarrassing to their meager collection of liberal zombie viewers.

They’ll just cry “racism,” blame it all on President Trump, and proceed with business as usual.

CNN’s ratings have fallen, and they can’t get up!

Yes…, CNN’s ratings are falling like a rock, and they have been for quite a while now.

A once proud and even iconic new channel, which had been trumpeted by the unmistakable voice of James Earl Jones, is in deep trouble.

Their ratings are collapsing.

People began seriously questioning the credibility of the biased, fake news media, led by CNN, during the Obama years, and then especially during President Trump’s campaign run, the beginning of his presidency, and right on up to today.

cnn 14

Conservatives don’t watch the channel anymore because their philosophy is constantly under attack on this network, and the “fake news” and liberal propaganda was just too much to bear.  Many liberals have become disenchanted with CNN as well due to the growing lack of credibility and an increase of misinformation, especially where the Mueller Report and Russian Collusion were involved.

CNN has taken the acceptable amount of liberal bias to a whole new level.

Beyond the realm of bias into the world of unabashed propaganda.

cnn 8

cnn 7

cnn 3

cnn 2

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “News network CNN is planning to reduce its headcount, leaving many staffers worried for their jobs. As the network’s ratings continue to sag, over 100 CNN employees have accepted voluntary buyouts…”

“CNN’s audience shriveled in the second quarter of 2019, averaging typically less than half of Fox News Channel’s average. But CNN struggled even more during the prime time hours, finishing as the fifteenth most-watched network on basic cable behind networks such as TLC, Investigation Discovery and the Hallmark Channel.”

The Hallmark Channel?

At this point, more people are tuning in to watch “SpongeBob Squarepants” than Anderson Cooper, Chris Cuomo or Don Lemon.

cnn 12

“CNN is suffering a credibility crisis… with no apparent plan in place to fix things anytime soon, according to media watchdogs and insiders.”

Of course not!

Don’t you get it?!

They’re not going to try and “fix” anything because they don’t think anything is broken!

They’re pumping out the liberal propaganda and fake news just like they intend to.

In their eyes we’re the ones who are broken, not them!

cnn 1

cnn 6

cnn 4

cnn 5

cnn 13

Don’t worry about CNN.  They’ll continue to be subsidized by their big liberal corporate friends, like Nike, Starbucks, Apple, Google, Time Warner, Under Armor and a hundred others.

“CNN did not immediately respond when asked for comment.”

Does this surprise anybody?

CNN’s programming strategy is anti-Trump all the time.

They have abandoned ANY semblance of fairness or balance.

“Cable news viewership has declined in general as more and more consumers cut the cord in favor of streaming services, but CNN’s losses are overwhelming. The network lost 18 percent of its audience compared to the second quarter of last year. CNN also dropped a whopping 38 percent of prime time viewers among the key demo [demographic].”

I’m sure MSNBC will be following CNN’s lead in the near future.

Only one network at a time can be flushed down the toilet!  They’re all in there swirling around the bowl right now, and CNN is closest to the drain!

WINNING!

What the heck has happened to Venezuela?!  I’ll break it down for you.

Let’s look at a basic and condensed timeline, pertaining to Venezuela, for starters:

1992 – Venezuela becomes the 3rd richest country in the western hemisphere, behind only the United States and Canada.

1993 – President Carlos Andrés Pérez is impeached for embezzlement of public funds.

1998 – A collapse in confidence in the existing parties saw the election of former coup-involved career officer Hugo Chávez and the launch of the Bolivarian Revolution and socialism. The “Bolivarian Revolution” refers to a left-wing populist social movement and political process in Venezuela led by the late Venezuelan president, Hugo Chávez, who founded the Fifth Republic Movement in 1997 and the United Socialist Party of Venezuela in 2007.

1999 – The “revolution” began when a “new” Constitution for Venezuela was written.

2001 – Venezuela voted for a socialist president to address “income inequality.”

venezuela 8

2004 – Private healthcare is completely socialized.

2007 – All higher education becomes “free.”

2009 – The private ownership of guns is banned.

2012 – Bernie Sanders is quoted as saying, “Venezuelans are living the American dream better than Americans.”

venezuela 6

2014 – Government opposition leaders are imprisoned.

2016 – Food shortages become a widespread problem.

venezuela 13

2017 – The Venezuelan constitution and elections are suspended.

2018 – The country’s economic policies lead to extreme hyperinflation, with an inflation rate of 1,370,000% by the end of the year.

2019 – It is estimated that more than 3 million people have fled Venezuela in recent years.

2019 – Venezuelan protesters are attacked and killed by their own government in order to suppress their dissidence.

 

Venezuela’s socialist governments have been in power since 1999, taking over the country at a time when Venezuela had huge inequality.

But the socialist polices brought in which aimed to help the poor backfired, and made the situation even worse, of course.  Companies now controlled by the government failed, and price controls to make basic goods more affordable to the poor by capping prices meant that Venezuelan businesses no longer found it profitable to produce them.  Eventually, the government subsidies of all facets of the economy were unsustainable.

In only 27 years Venezuela has turned a “rags to riches” story into a “riches to rags” story.

venezuela 5

Like Margaret Thatcher, the former Britsh Prime Minister once said, “The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

Does any of the Venezuela story sound familiar today in America?

There certainly appear to be some similarities in the early stages happening here.

venezuela 2

We see an impeachment happy democrat Congress trying to overturn a presidential election.

We see many democrat politicians and democrat presidential candidates calling for a new constitution or drastic changes to our existing one.

venezuela 10

We constantly hear democrat politicians and democrat presidential candidates touting government solutions for “income inequality,” don’t we?

venezuela 9

We hear democrat politicians and democrat presidential candidates calling for a complete government takeover of our healthcare system.

Many democrat politicians and democrat presidential candidates are proposing “free” college.

And lastly, we hear many democrat politicians and democrat presidential candidates calling for radical changes to our gun laws, changes to the 2nd amendment or the complete removal of our right to bear arms.

The intentions of the American democrat party are apparent.

The democrats want to destroy America as we know it.

venezuela 3

The choice here is painfully clear.

If you want to follow in Venezuela’s footsteps…, elect democrats.

It’s as simple as that.

The only people who benefit from a socialist government are those in government.

venezuela 7

They apparently long for power that badly that they are willing to turn everyone elses life into a living hell for their own sakes.

They can only do this if we let them, however.

Remember…, the Venezuelan people voted for what they got.

In the end…, it’s their own fault.

And in the end…, we’ll choose our own fate as well.

My reaction to some recent headlines:  (1) Lock up Attorney General William Barr?  (2) Another date that will “go down in infamy?” (3) Why are the House Democrats out to get Attorney General Barr?  (4) Democrat lawmaker records himself harassing a pro-life woman.  And (5) Joy “less” Behar of “The View” is at it again. 

There are so many topics I’d like to offer my insight on, but so little time!  So every once in a while I like to respond to a number of articles that I couldn’t necessarily devote an entire daily blog to on an article by article basis.

Welcome to my second edition of “MrEricksonRules’ headline buffet line!”

“Imprisoning Bill Barr is [the] left’s new rallying cry: ‘Have him locked up!’”

By Brooke Singman of Fox News.

“The battle between congressional Democrats and the Justice Department over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report has reached new levels of vitriol, as some on the left call for Attorney General Bill Barr to be physically dragged in to testify or even locked up for defying congressional subpoenas.”

“The demands have escalated after the attorney general refused to appear before the House Judiciary Committee last week amid disagreements over the format of the hearing.”

“Though he testified a day earlier on the Senate side, Democrats on the committee still want to bring in the DOJ leader to answer questions on the conclusion of Mueller’s investigation. Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., also imposed a Monday morning deadline for Barr to turn over the full, unredacted Mueller report and additional files — a deadline the DOJ apparently missed, prompting Nadler to schedule a Wednesday vote on contempt proceedings against Barr.”

Everything that William Barr has done up this point is completely within in rights and responsibilities as Attorney General.

What we have on the democrats’ side is a bunch of grandstanding, and now desperation, as they learned that Mr. Barr was looking into what really happened regarding Russian collusion, and what really happened regarding spying on Americans, and what really happened that caused this fraudulent investigation to be launched in the first place.

Their main goal now is to discredit him, silence him, and preferably have him resign or be removed from office.  Anything but allow him to drag their “swampy” friends out into the sunlight.

‘“He [Attorney General Barr] lied to Congress.  And if anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime,’ Pelosi told reporters. ‘Nobody is above the law. Not the president of the United States.  Not the attorney general.’”

Apparently Mrs. Pelosi is an exception to that rule…, as she lies ALL of the time to Congress, to us, to basically anyone within earshot of her.

“Pelosi’s public comments came after she, according to Politico, told Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Fla., during a private caucus meeting Thursday: ‘We saw [Barr] commit a crime when he answered your question.’”

“However, according to both the Post and the Justice Department, Mueller made clear that he did not feel that Barr’s summary was inaccurate.  Instead, Mueller told Barr that media coverage of the letter had “misinterpreted” the results of the probe concerning obstruction of justice.”

We all know it doesn’t matter to the democrats what anyone actually says…, the only thing that matters is what they want us to hear.

“NPR reporter refers to Barr summary in same terms as FDR describing attack on Pearl Harbor.”

By Anna Hopkins of Fox News

“The Department of Justice reporter for NPR [National Public Radio] referred to the date of Attorney General Barr’s summary of the Mueller report as ‘a date that will live … in infamy,’ a phrase many associate with President Franklin Roosevelt’s 1941 speech following the Pearl Harbor attack.”

headlines 10

“NPR’s Carrie Johnson made the comment during the NPR Politics podcast last Wednesday while discussing Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, during which he answered questions about the summary he gave of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.”

NPR…, another arm of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

Aren’t you be a tad dramatic there Ms. Johnson?

“A day that will live in infamy?”

Really?

How about the day that people in our government were contemplating a coup against President Trump?  How about that day?

How about the day the DOJ and the FBI decided they were going to falsify testimony to the FISA court and spy on the Trump campaign?  How about that day?

How about the day that the FBI overstepped its bounds and declared Hillary did not break any laws, regarding obstructing justice by destroying her server and then deleting over 33,00 emails, because that was not her “intent.”  How about that day?

You’re pathetic, Carrie Johnson.  You’re just a tool to be used by the liberal propaganda machine. You’re no journalist, and you’re no reporter.

You’re a fool.

“Why are the House Democrats out to get Attorney General Barr?”

By Representative Andy Biggs for Fox News

“Democrats in Congress are so worried that the American people will find out what is NOT in the Mueller report that they will say and do almost anything. The report exposes their false assertions that President Trump cooperated with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election. They will resort to embarrassing stunts like bringing fast food chicken buckets into congressional hearings. And, they will attempt to destroy the reputation of Attorney General William Barr simply because he is the messenger who released the Mueller report to the public.”

headlines 13

“Consider that House Democrat leaders are claiming Barr lied about … what? They are upset because he wrote a memo iterating the major findings in the Mueller report. They castigated Barr for the few weeks it took for him to make legally required redactions in the Mueller report before he could publicly release the report. Turns out Barr’s initial summary was accurate. And, we have a special counsel report that is available for public viewing with very few redactions, proving that Democrats weren’t telling the truth for over two years.”

“The Democrats must also be troubled that the inspector general will soon be releasing his report regarding the findings of his investigation into the abuse of power, which includes obtaining secret warrants to spy on the Trump campaign under the Obama administration. They dare not let go of their attack on the president and anyone who works with him, knowing that the IG report will likely contain damaging revelations of the Democrat National Committee and the Clinton presidential campaign working with Russians to unleash the police apparatus under President Obama to spy on the Trump campaign for political purposes.”

headlines 5

The democrats are counting on the complicit “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” to do their part and downplay or ignore any potentially damaging evidence that turns up.

They, in turn, will just continue to deny, deny, deny, and attempt to discredit William Barr, and anyone else that may need to be silenced.

Republican Representative Andy Biggs represents the 5th Congressional District of Arizona.

“Dem state lawmaker records himself harassing pro-life woman outside Planned Parenthood”

By Caleb Parke of Fox News

“PA [Pennsylvania] State Representative Brian Sims recorded himself harassing a pro-life woman peacefully protesting outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Sims’ Philadelphia district.”

headlines 12

“A Pennsylvania Democratic state representative went on an eight-minute rant, verbally harassing an elderly woman protesting outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.”

“Brian Sims recorded a woman outside Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, which is in his district, telling her to pray at home, calling her an ‘old white lady’ and lecturing her about her Christian beliefs on the Periscope app.”

‘“Push back against Planned Parenthood protestors, PLEASE!’ Sims wrote on Twitter Thursday. ‘They prey on young women, they use white privilege, & shame. They’re racist, classist, bigots who NEED & DESERVE our righteous opposition. Push back, please!’”

So here we have another obvious example of double standards exhibited by the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake new media.”

Here we have a politician no less, harassing an elderly citizen, who is doing everything within her rights as a citizen to do.

He brings her race into play, and then has the nerve to later call her a racist!

He also attacks her religion, which is okay to do, as long as it’s Christianity.  God forbid he would attack a Muslim!!!  Then we would really have a problem here!

The level of confusion exhibited by these clowns is just so impressive.

“Joy Behar slams ‘unpatriotic’ Trump, says GOP supporters should remove ‘those flag pins.’”

By Brian Flood for Fox News

‘“The View’ co-host Joy [less] Behar said on Monday that Republicans who support President Trump should take off ‘those flag pins’ because the president’s behavior regarding Russian meddling is ‘unpatriotic.’”

headlines 2

‘“It isn’t just that. Let’s talk about, you know, the fact that he met with Putin for 90 minutes… and never once brought up the fact that Russia, Russia interfered in our election,’ Behar said.

These libs just throw this stuff around like they know what they’re talking about.

How exactly did the Russians “interfere” with our elections?  They sure interfered far less than our own FBI and DOJ!  And I don’t hear her crying about James Comey or Loretta Lynch though!

That’s because Joy “less” Behar has no idea what she is talking about.  She is just a part of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

headlines 3

“Behar continued: ‘I said last week I don’t want to see any of those flag pins anymore on Republicans who don’t stand up against this guy for Russian meddling, and other things that he’s done. It seems as though he’s unpatriotic.’”

headlines 4

Joy “less” Behar is so far off base here, it’s hard to know how to respond.  So I guess I won’t.

“You can’t argue with crazy” is something my wife says all of the time.

And she’s right.

So I won’t.

“Behar has attacked Trump and his supporters on a regular basis, mocking everything from Mike Pence’s Christian faith to women who support Trump.  She immediately backtracked last September after saying ‘God forbid President Trump lives another 20 years.’”

What a peach.

“Waaaah…, the election was stolen from me…, waaah!” – Hillary Clinton

According to Liam Quinn, a senior editor at Fox News, “Hillary Clinton suggests the election was ‘stolen’ from her, and other Dems could ‘suffer the same fate.’”

“Hillary Clinton suggested she had the 2016 election ‘stolen’ from her during the latest stop of her slumping speaking tour.”

“Taking the stage with her husband Bill in Los Angeles Saturday night as part of the couple’s ‘Evening with the Clintons’ tour, the former Democrat presidential nominee told the crowd she has been warning potential candidates they could suffer the same fate.”

Ha!  An evening with the Clintons!?

More like an evening with a serial sex offender and his scheming, apologist, power hungry, wanna be president, partner in crime.

‘“I think it’s also critical to understand that, as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,’ the former secretary of state said.”

Oh really?  Which candidates exactly have been coming to see you, Hillary?  I’m calling bull caca on that claim.

“She’s hardly the only prominent Democrat claiming to have been wrongly kept out of office. On Friday, Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams again claimed she won the state’s 2018 gubernatorial race, despite losing to now-Gov. Brian Kemp.”

‘“I’m here to tell you a secret that makes Breitbart and [Fox News host] Tucker Carlson go crazy: We won,’ Abrams said, according to The Houston Chronicle. ‘I am not delusional. I know I am not the governor of Georgia — possibly yet.’”

No, Stacey, you’re not “delusional,” you’re just a bad loser, and a typical racist, liberal, socialist…, and you don’t know how to talk.

Bam!  Ya, I just said that!

“Abrams justified her refusal to accept the result of the election by calling Kemp ‘an architect of voter suppression that spent the last eight years knitting together a system of voter suppression that is unparalleled in America.’”

Ya…, how dare Governor Kemp attempt to suppress the votes of dead people, non-citizens, and fraudulent mail-in ballots!

The nerve of that guy!

“At the Clinton event, the crowd broke out in applause after Hillary Clinton delivered the ‘stolen’ election line, before she continued with a jab at President Trump.”

‘“And that, my friends, has nothing to do with the economy,’ she said.”

No it doesn’t, Hillary…, but “It’s the economy, stupid” was coined by your hubby’s own campaign strategist, James Carville, during his successful 1992 presidential campaign…, stupid!

“So part of our challenge is to understand what it will take to put together not only the popular vote but the Electoral College.”

Wow…, that’s a good idea Hillary!  Maybe you should have thought about that before the last election…, since, you know…, the winner is decided by which candidate gets the most Electoral College votes.  Duh!

“Clinton won the popular vote in her 2016 campaign against Trump, but lost the Electoral College — and with it, the race.”

She not only lost the Electoral College election, but she got creamed, 304 – 227.

It’s pretty hard to “steal” something from someone who never had the thing to begin with!

Fox News contributor Dan Bongino asked, “How can the woman whose team colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign claim the election was ‘stolen’ from her’ [by the Russians]?”

“The former first lady also questioned how Trump could still hold conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin following the release of the information in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.”

Uhhh, maybe because Mueller found no proof of collusion between President Trump and “the Russians,” whatever or whoever “the Russians” means…, or haven’t you heard?

“Mueller’s report ‘not only decisively proves, but goes chapter and verse about how the Russians — in the words of the report — conducted a sweeping and systemic interference in our election,’ she said, according to the Seattle Times. ‘And then you wake up and your president is spending an hour on the phone with Vladimir Putin, who was the mastermind of the interference and attack on our election.’”

I’ve said this before…, but Hillary has not read the Mueller report.  All she does is make up whatever narrative she wants and then attributes it to the report, which she know the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” won’t question or dispute.

According to Michael F. Haverluck, of OneNewsNow.com, “The first Clinton event that was held at a Canadian hockey area – which houses nearly 20,000 seats – saw a mere 3,300 tickets sold, and more seat backs than Clinton fans were visible when the lights dimmed and the couple started talking.”

“For their May 19 show at The Forum in Inglewood, California, – which seats more than 17,000 – tickets usually priced at $77 are now going for $35, with $120 tickets discounted to $50, and $175 seats down to $72,” the U.K. daily informed [And tickets were all the way down to $6.50 just prior to the event!]. ‘Despite the site telling customers that ‘tickets are selling fast!’ with ‘limited time remaining,’ it appears that less than 450 discounted tickets have actually been sold.’”

I guess Hillary is about as popular now as she was during the election!

Unlike during the election, however, you can’t pay people to come to your events…, because, in this case, what would be the point?

In conclusion…, let’s be clear…, nothing was “stolen” from you Hillary.

hillary stolen 8

In reality…, you just plain lost…, and conversely…, we know that YOU were the one who cheated during the debates.  You were the one who had your party rig the primary election against Bernie Sanders.  YOU and your partners in crime were the ones who colluded with the Russians in an attempt to dig up dirt on and/or frame Donald Trump.  And YOU were and are the one who has obstructed justice at every turn.

And you just continue to lie misinform the people whenever you open your mouth.

LOCK HER UP!

LOCK HER UP!

LOCK HER UP!

Fox News’ Adam Shaw and Andrew O’Reilly also contributed to Liam Quinn’s report.
