Biden Fights Crime

By Mike Huckabee

Wednesday, President Biden announced his policy to reduce the big surge in violent crime that’s been caused by the policies of his fellow Democrats. Not surprisingly, it was a mixture of the obvious and the useless. The obvious: increase community policing. Wait, I thought the key to reducing violence was to defund the police? Well, that worked about as well as a cement life jacket. So now, Democrats can announce that they will solve the problem they caused by doing the opposite of what they’ve been doing for the past year and hope that voters have amnesia.

The useless proposals Biden announced were, of course, more gun control laws, like strengthening background checks and banning assault weapons (which liberals can’t even define) and high-capacity magazines (ditto.) These will inconvenience law-abiding gun owners and create a lot more paperwork while doing nothing to stop criminals from obtaining illegal weapons.

All this stuff was sadly predictable, but what got the most attention was Biden’s wandering comments (bizarre even by Joe Biden standards) about those who view the Second Amendment as protecting the citizens’ right to be armed to prevent government tyranny. Biden claimed “most responsible gun owners” agree there’s “no possible justification for having 100 rounds in a magazine…Those who say the blood of patriots*, you know, and all the stuff about how we’re gonna have to move against the government. If you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/biden-accidentally-made-best-case-gun-rights-president-ever/

That statement launched a thousand conservative commentaries and memes. Some pointed out that he’s the same President who’s also trying to convince us that a handful of unarmed nuts in the Capitol were actually a serious threat to topple the government. Others pointed out that Democrats call AR-15s a “weapon of war” (they’re not), but now claim you can’t win a war with them, you need F-15s and nukes. Others reminded Biden that guerillas with rifles and IEDs have fought the US to a standstill in the Middle East for decades. Some noted that the main driving force of gun sales isn’t insurrectionists but law-abiding residents of cities where idiot Democrat leaders have slashed police forces and started releasing criminals and prosecuting cops. And still others pointed out the ludicrousness of suggesting that if there ever was a revolt against the government that Washington would fight back by…what, nuking Oklahoma?

Kurt Schlicter, who is not only a hilarious columnist and an attorney but also a former military officer, was kind enough to give the media a lesson in doing their job as well. He gave them a list of follow-up questions they should have asked the President, if they knew anything at all about military tactics or the Second Amendment or the limits on government power. It’s worth reading all the way to the end.

https://twitchy.com/brettt-3136/2021/06/23/kurt-schlichter-gives-journalists-some-questions-to-ask-the-president-after-his-comments-about-needing-f-15s-and-nukes-to-fight-the-government/

* (I think he was referring to the Thomas Jefferson quote, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” It’s telling that he remembered the part about patriots shedding blood but didn’t mention tyrants having to shed any blood. That would sort of explain his attitude toward Iran.)


Two Supreme Court Rulings Worth Writing About

By Mike Huckabee

The Supreme Court just struck down a California regulation that’s been around since 1975 and that the SCOTUS previously declined to consider.

https://www.westernjournal.com/supreme-court-deals-significant-blow-unions-striking-california-regulation/

The regulation allowed union organizers to come onto employers’ property during non-work hours to talk to agricultural workers. Proponents claimed it was necessary to allow unions to contact and organize farm workers. Opponents say it’s outdated, since that can now be done online.

But what’s most interesting, and has broader implications, is that the SCOTUS rejected it as a clear violation of the 5th and 14th Amendments and the employers’ property rights. I’m sure California’s uber-liberal, pro-union leaders will be shocked to hear this, but the Court ruled that “the Founders recognized that the protection of private property is indispensable to the promotion of individual freedom. This Court agrees, having noted that protection of property rights is ‘necessary to preserve freedom’ and ‘empowers persons to shape and to plan their own destiny in a world where governments are always eager to do so for them.'”

They’re correct: the right to private property is one of the most maligned and belittled of all American rights, but it is fundamental to all rights. If the government has control over your property, then you don’t really own it, any more than you “own” a movie if your streaming service can cut it off any time they want. When the government controls “private” property, that’s not a free country, it’s a socialist state.

In a separate ruling, the SCOTUS reversed the (again) California Supreme Court, which ruled that a police officer can enter a suspect’s home without a warrant if the cop is in pursuit of someone for whom there’s probable cause that he committed a misdemeanor. The Court ruled that cops don’t have to wait for a warrant if it’s an emergency, but they would not “print a new permission slip” to violate the sanctity of someone’s home without a warrant or a pressing reason.

https://reason.com/2021/06/23/scotus-refuses-to-print-a-new-permission-slip-for-entering-the-home-without-a-warrant/

Another major rebuke to the leftist “all property belongs to the government” crowd is that these rulings were not narrow partisan splits, but 6-3 decisions. Liberal Justice Elena Kagan even wrote the one on warrantless entry! Unless far-left Democrats achieve their dream of packing the Supreme Court, this is bad news for all radical plans that involve seizing people’s property or telling them what they’re allowed to do on it. And that’s very good news for Americans.


"Promoting Democracy"

By Mike Huckabee

One of the most positive side effects of the rising calls for investigations of the 2020 election is the spotlight that’s being shone on Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s part in buying the White House for Joe Biden.

Under the guise of promoting “democracy,” Zuckerberg gave hundreds of millions of dollars to a group called the Center for Tech and Civic Life. It’s ostensible goal is to make voting easier and more common. But while a small amount of these “Zuck Bucks” went to GOP districts, the majority of the get-out-the-vote funds were poured into heavily-Democrat districts in swing states. In some cases, local election officials practically let Zuckerberg’s minions take over their election systems.

Now, some local officials are alarmed at what happened and how much influence one tech billionaire had on the election, and they’re trying to make sure that never happens again. For instance, a former county clerk in Green Bay, Wisconsin, is accusing the Zuckerberg group of making last-minute changes that may have violated state law.

https://www.westernjournal.com/wisconsin-election-official-says-zuckerberg-funded-group-seized-control-2020-election/

And in Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott just signed a new law aimed squarely at Zuck Bucks, limiting private funding of election administration.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/06/14/ttexas-gov-greg-abbott-signs-bill-into-law-limits-private-funding-of-election-administration/

That’s a bill that needs to be adopted nationwide, although that won’t happen with the beneficiaries of Zuck Bucks in charge in DC. That’s why citizens have to demand that their state and local leaders step up and stop it.

Ironically, for years, Democrats have railed against “billionaires buying elections.” Their principles seem to have shifted considerably since billionaires started buying elections for them.


Trusting Vaccines

By Mike Huckabee

Even since the pandemic began to wane, we’ve seen one story after another that went from “The science is settled and you’re a crazy conspiracy nut who needs to be silenced if you question it” to “You know what, maybe the ‘experts’ were wrong.” We’ve seen it with facemasks, the risk of disease transmission via surfaces, even the origin of the virus itself. Now, two doctors from UCLA and Yale have written an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, speculating that the next reversal of expert opinion may involve the safety of the vaccines.

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2021/06/24/doctors-from-yale-and-ucla-there-are-concerns-about-the-vaccine-officials-may-not-be-telling-you-about-n2591466

They argue that many of these positions that were eventually reversed were motivated by politics, not sound medical science, and they think the risks of possible vaccine side effects may be getting downplayed for the same reason. But they believe growing evidence of serious side effects for some people may change that. They also believe natural immunity from having had COVID is being downplayed in the push to vaccinate everyone, even though there’s no scientific evidence that it would be beneficial to those with natural immunity, and there are new studies showing no difference in re-infection rates among those people and the vaccinated.

Personally, I’m not going to tell anyone to get vaccinated or not to get vaccinated. My wife and I assessed the potential risks, and considering the friends we lost to the disease or who suffered serious health issues, we decided the vaccine was the safer bet. Any vaccine can have side effects for some people, and with so many people taking these vaccines, it stands to reason there would be more who suffer side effects. So far, we’ve had no problems. Ultimately, I believe it’s up to you to decide for yourself. America’s largest health care workers’ union seems to agree with me on that.

https://gothamist.com/news/americas-largest-health-care-union-vows-to-fight-mandatory-covid-19-vaccines

But before you decide, you deserve to know the full unvarnished truth so you can make the best informed choice.

Proponents of the vaccines do their own cause no favors when they hide or distort the truth for political purposes. It certainly doesn’t build public trust when the doctor known as the inventor of mRNA vaccines finds himself censored from YouTube for voicing his concerns about potential risks of the COVID mRNA vaccines. If you do want to hear his thoughts, Tucker Carlson had him on his Fox News show.

https://www.foxnews.com/media/tucker-carlson-mrna-vaccine-inventor

During a pandemic, trust in health officials is a precious commodity. They’ve already squandered too much of it, and they can point the finger at "rightwing media" all they like, but they have no one to blame for that but themselves.


The Cat Is Out Of The Bag

By Mike Huckabee

House Democratic Caucus Chair Hakeem Jeffries let the cat out of the bag by declaring that America can’t go back to pre-pandemic “normal” unless the government spends a Mount Everest-sized mountain of borrowed money on a raft of massive government social programs. Or as he calls it, “Investing in the caring economy.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/top-democrat-exposes-lefts-real-agenda-says-america-cannot-go-back-pre-pandemic-normal/

I hate to break it to him, but most of America is already returning to normal, thanks to Trump’s vaccines and Democrats finally taking their boots off their necks. And as always, “normal” includes ignoring Democrats who always claim that the only solution to any problem is to invent a massive new government program and shovel a ton of borrowed money into it.

Incidentally, Rep. Jeffries, this is what Americans are talking about when they say we need to fix our infrastructure, not spending trillions on new social programs.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/roads-open-after-northeast-dc-pedestrian-bridge-collapse/ar-AALorok

This happened very close to you in DC, so maybe you should get a few of your colleagues together and drive by to take a look at it for future reference.

    Will any of the Biden’s policies ever affect him or any of the collection in his administration? NO. These people have amassed great wealth thru corrupt tactics immoral dealings and basically a free lifestyle at the taxpayers expense. As this old connection has made deals throughout this country and outside of this country they have to stay together or they will find themselves explaining how they gained so much wealth. Most of these mobsters are getting ready for a dirt bath no way will justice find them here on the planet maybe the next stop will have real justice and a real Judge......

    Mike, I was a bit disappointed in your assertion that we (citizens) have "private property." In most places, the Government controls practically anything of value and lets us use it as long as we pay for the privilege of thinking we own it.

    Take our homes for example. The Government "rents" them to us, where the rent is paid in the form of "taxes." This "rent" is not optional, and if the supposed "owner" does not pay their rent, they are evicted and the Government then "rents" the property to someone who will pay the rent.

    It doesn't matter what you call it. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck.

    I find Biden's comments about weapons and taking on the government when it is in a tyrannical state almost laughable. We've had people fly planes into buildings, remember? Weapons go beyond F-15s. Who says a pipe bomb doesn't work in a crowd? He's either so senile he's entered the second childhood, or he doesn't know that 9mm pistols are also deadly. It's not the size of the weapon or what the weapon is - it is who is wielding it where. (There are reasons why knitting needles are not seen on airplanes...)

    First of all the gun control game is not about reducing crime. The left has no desire to reduce it. Every time there is a robbery or murder or a young man's blood runs on the streets it is payday for the media, lawyers and politicians. Crime is extremely profitable for all of these people. Especially if a black man is killed by a white cop they can play the race angle and the race hustlers can join in on the windfall. Secondly, if biden was really serious about coming down on illegal firearms it would lead right back to the Obama/biden/holder Fast and Furious program to promote mayhem by supplying drug runners with high power rifles. Many democrats and many in the legal profession are compromised by criminal enterprises and seek to protect them by limiting access to firearms by their targeted victims.
    Media likewise has a vested interest in criminal activity because without it they would have nothing to report on. And finally criminals will always always have access to guns as they do in every country which restricts its citizens from owning firearms. If every legitimate manufacturer were to close tomorrow it would only increase the demand for illegal homemade guns and ammo. Narcotics sold on the streets around the country are illegal, aren't they? So is human trafficking or so I am told.

Biden Fights Crime

Not surprisingly, it was a mixture of the obvious and the useless. The obvious: increase community policing. Wait, I thought the key to reducing violence was to defund the police? Well, that worked about as well as a cement life jacket. So now, Democrats can announce that they will solve the problem they caused by doing the opposite of what they’ve been doing for the past year and hope that voters have amnesia.

The useless proposals Biden announced were, of course, more gun control laws, like strengthening background checks and banning assault weapons (which liberals can’t even define) and high-capacity magazines (ditto.) These will inconvenience law-abiding gun owners and create a lot more paperwork while doing nothing to stop criminals from obtaining illegal weapons.

All this stuff was sadly predictable, but what got the most attention was Biden’s wandering comments (bizarre even by Joe Biden standards) about those who view the Second Amendment as protecting the citizens’ right to be armed to prevent government tyranny. Biden claimed “most responsible gun owners” agree there’s “no possible justification for having 100 rounds in a magazine…Those who say the blood of patriots*, you know, and all the stuff about how we’re gonna have to move against the government. If you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.”

It's not the size of the weapon or what the weapon is - it is who is wielding it where. (There are reasons why knitting needles are not seen on airplanes...)

    First of all the gun control game is not about reducing crime. The left has no desire to reduce it. Every time there is a robbery or murder or a young man's blood runs on the streets it is payday for the media, lawyers and politicians. Crime is extremely profitable for all of these people. Especially if a black man is killed by a white cop they can play the race angle and the race hustlers can join in on the windfall. Secondly, if biden was really serious about coming down on illegal firearms it would lead right back to the Obama/biden/holder Fast and Furious program to promote mayhem by supplying drug runners with high power rifles. Many democrats and many in the legal profession are compromised by criminal enterprises and seek to protect them by limiting access to firearms by their targeted victims.
    Media likewise has a vested interest in criminal activity because without it they would have nothing to report on. And finally criminals will always always have access to guns as they do in every country which restricts its citizens from owning firearms. If every legitimate manufacturer were to close tomorrow it would only increase the demand for illegal homemade guns and ammo. Narcotics sold on the streets around the country are illegal, aren't they? So is human trafficking or so I am told.

    Proverbs 3:5

     


    Biden Fights Crime

    By Mike Huckabee

    Wednesday, President Biden announced his policy to reduce the big surge in violent crime that’s been caused by the policies of his fellow Democrats. Not surprisingly, it was a mixture of the obvious and the useless. The obvious: increase community policing. Wait, I thought the key to reducing violence was to defund the police? Well, that worked about as well as a cement life jacket. So now, Democrats can announce that they will solve the problem they caused by doing the opposite of what they’ve been doing for the past year and hope that voters have amnesia.

    The useless proposals Biden announced were, of course, more gun control laws, like strengthening background checks and banning assault weapons (which liberals can’t even define) and high-capacity magazines (ditto.) These will inconvenience law-abiding gun owners and create a lot more paperwork while doing nothing to stop criminals from obtaining illegal weapons.

    All this stuff was sadly predictable, but what got the most attention was Biden’s wandering comments (bizarre even by Joe Biden standards) about those who view the Second Amendment as protecting the citizens’ right to be armed to prevent government tyranny. Biden claimed “most responsible gun owners” agree there’s “no possible justification for having 100 rounds in a magazine…Those who say the blood of patriots*, you know, and all the stuff about how we’re gonna have to move against the government. If you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.”

    https://www.westernjournal.com/biden-accidentally-made-best-case-gun-rights-president-ever/

    That statement launched a thousand conservative commentaries and memes. Some pointed out that he’s the same President who’s also trying to convince us that a handful of unarmed nuts in the Capitol were actually a serious threat to topple the government. Others pointed out that Democrats call AR-15s a “weapon of war” (they’re not), but now claim you can’t win a war with them, you need F-15s and nukes. Others reminded Biden that guerillas with rifles and IEDs have fought the US to a standstill in the Middle East for decades. Some noted that the main driving force of gun sales isn’t insurrectionists but law-abiding residents of cities where idiot Democrat leaders have slashed police forces and started releasing criminals and prosecuting cops. And still others pointed out the ludicrousness of suggesting that if there ever was a revolt against the government that Washington would fight back by…what, nuking Oklahoma?

    Kurt Schlicter, who is not only a hilarious columnist and an attorney but also a former military officer, was kind enough to give the media a lesson in doing their job as well. He gave them a list of follow-up questions they should have asked the President, if they knew anything at all about military tactics or the Second Amendment or the limits on government power. It’s worth reading all the way to the end.

    https://twitchy.com/brettt-3136/2021/06/23/kurt-schlichter-gives-journalists-some-questions-to-ask-the-president-after-his-comments-about-needing-f-15s-and-nukes-to-fight-the-government/

    * (I think he was referring to the Thomas Jefferson quote, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” It’s telling that he remembered the part about patriots shedding blood but didn’t mention tyrants having to shed any blood. That would sort of explain his attitude toward Iran.)


    Two Supreme Court Rulings Worth Writing About

    By Mike Huckabee

    The Supreme Court just struck down a California regulation that’s been around since 1975 and that the SCOTUS previously declined to consider.

    https://www.westernjournal.com/supreme-court-deals-significant-blow-unions-striking-california-regulation/

    The regulation allowed union organizers to come onto employers’ property during non-work hours to talk to agricultural workers. Proponents claimed it was necessary to allow unions to contact and organize farm workers. Opponents say it’s outdated, since that can now be done online.

    But what’s most interesting, and has broader implications, is that the SCOTUS rejected it as a clear violation of the 5th and 14th Amendments and the employers’ property rights. I’m sure California’s uber-liberal, pro-union leaders will be shocked to hear this, but the Court ruled that “the Founders recognized that the protection of private property is indispensable to the promotion of individual freedom. This Court agrees, having noted that protection of property rights is ‘necessary to preserve freedom’ and ‘empowers persons to shape and to plan their own destiny in a world where governments are always eager to do so for them.'”

    They’re correct: the right to private property is one of the most maligned and belittled of all American rights, but it is fundamental to all rights. If the government has control over your property, then you don’t really own it, any more than you “own” a movie if your streaming service can cut it off any time they want. When the government controls “private” property, that’s not a free country, it’s a socialist state.

    In a separate ruling, the SCOTUS reversed the (again) California Supreme Court, which ruled that a police officer can enter a suspect’s home without a warrant if the cop is in pursuit of someone for whom there’s probable cause that he committed a misdemeanor. The Court ruled that cops don’t have to wait for a warrant if it’s an emergency, but they would not “print a new permission slip” to violate the sanctity of someone’s home without a warrant or a pressing reason.

    https://reason.com/2021/06/23/scotus-refuses-to-print-a-new-permission-slip-for-entering-the-home-without-a-warrant/

    Another major rebuke to the leftist “all property belongs to the government” crowd is that these rulings were not narrow partisan splits, but 6-3 decisions. Liberal Justice Elena Kagan even wrote the one on warrantless entry! Unless far-left Democrats achieve their dream of packing the Supreme Court, this is bad news for all radical plans that involve seizing people’s property or telling them what they’re allowed to do on it. And that’s very good news for Americans.


    "Promoting Democracy"

    By Mike Huckabee

    One of the most positive side effects of the rising calls for investigations of the 2020 election is the spotlight that’s being shone on Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s part in buying the White House for Joe Biden.

    Under the guise of promoting “democracy,” Zuckerberg gave hundreds of millions of dollars to a group called the Center for Tech and Civic Life. It’s ostensible goal is to make voting easier and more common. But while a small amount of these “Zuck Bucks” went to GOP districts, the majority of the get-out-the-vote funds were poured into heavily-Democrat districts in swing states. In some cases, local election officials practically let Zuckerberg’s minions take over their election systems.

    Now, some local officials are alarmed at what happened and how much influence one tech billionaire had on the election, and they’re trying to make sure that never happens again. For instance, a former county clerk in Green Bay, Wisconsin, is accusing the Zuckerberg group of making last-minute changes that may have violated state law.

    https://www.westernjournal.com/wisconsin-election-official-says-zuckerberg-funded-group-seized-control-2020-election/

    And in Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott just signed a new law aimed squarely at Zuck Bucks, limiting private funding of election administration.

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/06/14/ttexas-gov-greg-abbott-signs-bill-into-law-limits-private-funding-of-election-administration/

    That’s a bill that needs to be adopted nationwide, although that won’t happen with the beneficiaries of Zuck Bucks in charge in DC. That’s why citizens have to demand that their state and local leaders step up and stop it.

    Ironically, for years, Democrats have railed against “billionaires buying elections.” Their principles seem to have shifted considerably since billionaires started buying elections for them.


    Trusting Vaccines

    By Mike Huckabee

    Even since the pandemic began to wane, we’ve seen one story after another that went from “The science is settled and you’re a crazy conspiracy nut who needs to be silenced if you question it” to “You know what, maybe the ‘experts’ were wrong.” We’ve seen it with facemasks, the risk of disease transmission via surfaces, even the origin of the virus itself. Now, two doctors from UCLA and Yale have written an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, speculating that the next reversal of expert opinion may involve the safety of the vaccines.

    https://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2021/06/24/doctors-from-yale-and-ucla-there-are-concerns-about-the-vaccine-officials-may-not-be-telling-you-about-n2591466

    They argue that many of these positions that were eventually reversed were motivated by politics, not sound medical science, and they think the risks of possible vaccine side effects may be getting downplayed for the same reason. But they believe growing evidence of serious side effects for some people may change that. They also believe natural immunity from having had COVID is being downplayed in the push to vaccinate everyone, even though there’s no scientific evidence that it would be beneficial to those with natural immunity, and there are new studies showing no difference in re-infection rates among those people and the vaccinated.

    Personally, I’m not going to tell anyone to get vaccinated or not to get vaccinated. My wife and I assessed the potential risks, and considering the friends we lost to the disease or who suffered serious health issues, we decided the vaccine was the safer bet. Any vaccine can have side effects for some people, and with so many people taking these vaccines, it stands to reason there would be more who suffer side effects. So far, we’ve had no problems. Ultimately, I believe it’s up to you to decide for yourself. America’s largest health care workers’ union seems to agree with me on that.

    https://gothamist.com/news/americas-largest-health-care-union-vows-to-fight-mandatory-covid-19-vaccines

    But before you decide, you deserve to know the full unvarnished truth so you can make the best informed choice.

    Proponents of the vaccines do their own cause no favors when they hide or distort the truth for political purposes. It certainly doesn’t build public trust when the doctor known as the inventor of mRNA vaccines finds himself censored from YouTube for voicing his concerns about potential risks of the COVID mRNA vaccines. If you do want to hear his thoughts, Tucker Carlson had him on his Fox News show.

    https://www.foxnews.com/media/tucker-carlson-mrna-vaccine-inventor

    During a pandemic, trust in health officials is a precious commodity. They’ve already squandered too much of it, and they can point the finger at "rightwing media" all they like, but they have no one to blame for that but themselves.


    The Cat Is Out Of The Bag

    By Mike Huckabee

    House Democratic Caucus Chair Hakeem Jeffries let the cat out of the bag by declaring that America can’t go back to pre-pandemic “normal” unless the government spends a Mount Everest-sized mountain of borrowed money on a raft of massive government social programs. Or as he calls it, “Investing in the caring economy.”

    https://www.westernjournal.com/top-democrat-exposes-lefts-real-agenda-says-america-cannot-go-back-pre-pandemic-normal/

    I hate to break it to him, but most of America is already returning to normal, thanks to Trump’s vaccines and Democrats finally taking their boots off their necks. And as always, “normal” includes ignoring Democrats who always claim that the only solution to any problem is to invent a massive new government program and shovel a ton of borrowed money into it.

    Incidentally, Rep. Jeffries, this is what Americans are talking about when they say we need to fix our infrastructure, not spending trillions on new social programs.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/roads-open-after-northeast-dc-pedestrian-bridge-collapse/ar-AALorok

    This happened very close to you in DC, so maybe you should get a few of your colleagues together and drive by to take a look at it for future reference.

      Will any of the Biden’s policies ever affect him or any of the collection in his administration? NO. These people have amassed great wealth thru corrupt tactics immoral dealings and basically a free lifestyle at the taxpayers expense. As this old connection has made deals throughout this country and outside of this country they have to stay together or they will find themselves explaining how they gained so much wealth. Most of these mobsters are getting ready for a dirt bath no way will justice find them here on the planet maybe the next stop will have real justice and a real Judge......

      Mike, I was a bit disappointed in your assertion that we (citizens) have "private property." In most places, the Government controls practically anything of value and lets us use it as long as we pay for the privilege of thinking we own it.

      Take our homes for example. The Government "rents" them to us, where the rent is paid in the form of "taxes." This "rent" is not optional, and if the supposed "owner" does not pay their rent, they are evicted and the Government then "rents" the property to someone who will pay the rent.

      It doesn't matter what you call it. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck.
