Willard Romney Had Shown His True Colors Long Ago

Oh, listen to all the people who are acting surprised that Willard Mitt Romney is such a buffoon, extremely dishonest and corrupt and sleazy, with the latest news about him regarding his fake Twitter account, in which Romney defends himself and criticizes Donald Trump.

No, it’s not “Carlos Danger,” or “Reinhold Niebuhr” — it’s “Pierre Delecto“!

Really, Willard? Really?

I’m hearing those talk radio ditto-heads saying that had they known the things we now know about Romney they wouldn’t have voted for him in the 2012 primaries. Doh!

Well, I tried to warn people.

Even as early as June, 2009, in a post on Sonia Sotomayor I had to stick some anti-Romney in there:

Then we had Gov. Willard Mitt Romney, himself busy running for president [in 2006-08], and because he had so much empathy for people without health insurance, he had to push through his Mandatory Health Insurance Law–”You must, MUST have health insurance,” he said in his bill-signing speech that day, with his detectable Locust Valley Lockjaw accent. (He repeated the word, “must.”) His empathy certainly wasn’t available for the many residents and businesses who wanted to opt out of the program, and many of whom had fled or will flee the state. What business is it of the government whether someone has health insurance? How will it be enforced? If someone doesn’t participate, fine them. What if they don’t pay the fine? Jail them. With more and more police. Wait, they’re still busy collecting taxes on the highways.

And in July, 2010 in my article on “Politics or Principle,” I wrote:

Perhaps Romney’s worst deed was RomneyCare, the health care bureaucracy and mandates he installed in his last year as governor. Given his expertise as an entrepreneur and capital investor, and his knowledge of how markets work, one would think that Romney would instinctively know that more government intrusions are the cause of our medical system’s dysfunction and not the cure.

Or perhaps he did know. Politicians oftentimes compromise principle for the sake of political strategy. At the time of his signing RomneyCare into law, mid-2006, it was widely speculated that then-U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton would be running for president in 2008, as well as Romney. Clinton’s own 1993 proposals for nationalized health care would be quite useful to compare to a Republican’s own proposals or policies.

For perhaps a better explanation of his record of government expansion and apparent attraction to the power of the State, it needs to be noted that Mitt Romney grew up in a very political family. His mother Lenore Romney had been a candidate for public office, and his father George Romney was a lobbyist in Washington for the aluminum industry and the automobile industry, and, as governor of Michigan for 8 years, George was credited (or blamed) for his instituting the state’s first state income tax, and greatly expanding state government. George Romney bitterly opposed Barry Goldwater for the Republican nomination for president in 1964. Mitt Romney seemed to follow in his father’s footsteps in advocating more government interventions and intrusions, not fewer, into private economic affairs.

During his last 365 days as governor until January 2007, Romney spent over 200 of those days traveling outside of Massachusetts, “testing the waters” for a 2008 presidential bid. During that last year of Romney’s gubernatorial tenure, many of the duties of governor were taken up by Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey, who was running her own failed campaign for governor. You would think that Romney would resign as governor to run his presidential campaign, but this is politics, after all. The political “public sector” inherently discourages its employees from maintaining a consistent job attendance.

And what does it say about someone such as Romney who spends $40 million of his own wealth on a presidential campaign, only to lose to the competition? It is doubtful that he or anyone would spend so much money to be hired as a CEO of even the most prestigious private firm. But that just shows the extent to which some people will go to achieve political power.

And in December, 2011 I criticized Laura Ingraham and Rush Limbaugh for their early support for Willard. I wrote, among other things:

I heard a little of Laura Ingraham and then some of Rush Limbaugh today. From what little I heard of both of them, it is obvious they are both pushing Romney now for the Republican nomination for President. Limbaugh was complaining that the conservatives seem to be dumping on Romney. If these so-called “conservative” talk show hosts really believe that Romney represents the “business” side of things, and that he’s going to have a “business-like” approach to the federal budget, dealing with the deficit or the National Debt, they are either on drugs, or they suffer from severe delusions, or both.

And another thing, as far as these supposedly intelligent (“with half my brain tied behind my back,” etc.) radio personalities’ actually believing that the one candidate who can definitely beat Barry and Evita in the 2012 elections is Willard Romney, it is actually the opposite. A Romney nomination will guarantee an Obama victory. Why? Because they are two sides of the same coin, and most of America’s true conservatives know this.

And then in January, 2012 I wrote my article asking whether the people of New Hampshire would pick the Orwellian “conservative” Willard Romney.

In February 2012 in my post on “CPAC: Crazy Political Action Conference,” I wrote:

These so-called “conservatives” are really nuts now. They really are crazy. We have three socialists (i.e. communists) — Santorum, Gingrich and Romney — appearing at the Orwellian-named “Conservative” Political Action Conference, while the one actual conservative, who really IS conservative, Ron Paul, was cordially excluded. Only in Orwellian Amerika do we have this situation.

Romney referred to himself as “severely conservative,” in his one moment of true honesty in revealing how his destructive socialism is truly a mental illness. We know from actual historical fact that Romney/Kennedy/Obama/Bush socialism has always had destructive consequences. They are literally ruining America with their State intrusions, their confiscations, and their wars of aggression.

And, when Romney said that he was a “severely conservative governor,” even THAT’S not true! He raised taxes on businesses and implemented this failed government-managed healthcare-insurance scheme. No real capitalist would force a government-managed scheme like that on anyone! Talk about Orwellian! He’s nuts!

And I compared Romney to Ron Paul in a May, 2012 article. And then in August of 2012 I wrote that “Obama will win, thanks to the clueless banana Republicans.” And I was right.

I don’t know how many times I’ve posted this video, but here it is at this link, showing Romney snubbing a medical patient who says that medical marijuana can help him. Romney says he doesn’t support legalizing marijuana and walks away. Oh, what a caring, concerned gentleman, that Willard.

In other words, Romney is just another power-lusting politician who used sleazy tactics in his business career and has been a clueless, gutless wonder who has no real understanding of the free market as well as having no sense of decency as a human being.

So now in his hysterical rants against Trump it seems apparent to me that Willard Romney is again going to run for President. (Perhaps consider running in some other country, Willard?) Doh!

It’s Like an Orwell Novel in 2019 Amerika

Well, it’s been a tough couple of weeks, and I’m trying to get my brain working again. I’ll try to make some comments here on some of the recent annoying events in USSA Amerika. The Democrats are a joke. But the Republicans are also a joke. Let’s call the whole thing off. Can we cancel the 2020 election? Can we dismiss Trump because he really is a fascist, and dismiss those crooks and psychopaths in CONgress because they also are fascists and communists? I still like Lew Rockwell’s 30-day plan. It’s from 1991 but still applies today, and always.

What’s been going on? Libertarians and conservatives seem to be promoting Tulsi Gabbard, maybe for her allegedly antiwar views, even though she’s for “Medicare for All,” she’s an hysterical climate alarmist, she’s for a government-mandated minimum wage, she’s for reparations, i.e. she’s a left-wing kook. Plus, she criticizes the “endless wars” that are in the name of serving Raytheon and other merchants of death, yet she continually adulates her “brothers and sisters” in the military and praises their perpetrating those “endless wars”! She also says that the U.S. military should be to fight al Qaeda, who “attacked us on 9/11,” but she never says what led to that attack, i.e. what the U.S. military had been doing to the Middle East in the decades prior to that time. I think libertarians and conservatives just like Tulsi for her looks, quite frankly.

The Democrats, led by Hillary Rotten Clinton, have been going after Gabbard for some reason, calling her a “Russian asset,” just as they are calling The Donald a “Russian asset.” What Democrats really didn’t like was that Trump criticized the endless wars that Obama continued to make endless, and Trump criticized the national security state during the 2016 election, and the Obomber apparatchiks such as James Clapper, Comey and John Brennan didn’t like that. So they schemed and connived to make up a dossier against Trump to use as a reason to illegally spy on his campaign. And the national security establishment in and out of power have been trying to derail Trump’s presidency and 2020 campaign. And Lindsey Graham and his fellow national security state worshipers are now stalling in their duty to investigate the illegal origins of the Russia-collusions probe. They’re ALL criminals!

So, the “Democrats” really oppose the basic premise of “democracy.” If an election doesn’t go their way, they make things up and if they don’t want to actually assassinate him they will attempt to impeach him. So now while the “Russia-Russia-Russia” stuff takes a temporary recess, it’s Ukraine-Ukraine-Ukraine. We have the corrupt Adam Schiffty conducting hearings behind closed doors, in secret, banning Rethugs from the hearings, because obviously he has something to hide. And House Spooker Nancy Lugosi knows that there is no real evidence from a phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president to prove anything criminal, especially when the White House released a transcript soon after the accusations arose. I think members of the House Freedom Carcass are trying to censure Adam Schiff for his naughtiness. Especially when he reads aloud a made-up and slanderous conversation supposedly between Trump and Ukraine president. I can’t believe he actually did that. Schiff should be impeached, not just censured.

And the Democrats are pro-war now? During the 2000s the Democrats and their media and show-biz cohorts were constantly protesting George W. Bush’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Harry Reid and Pelosi had that all-nighter pajama party, remember that? But, as soon as Obama became President and continued the wars, the occupations and the bombings and drone strikes, so much for Democrats protesting. Crickets.

So, they really weren’t antiwar during the Bush years, they were just anti-Bush, just as they are now anti-Trump. No principles involved at all with these political hacks. They just hated Bush because he “stole the 2000 election in Florida.”

But the hypocritical, partisan Democrats  are no different from the Republicans and CONservatives who protest Democrats’ tax-n-spend welfare statism but are nevertheless welfare statists themselves.

And this thing with Sean Hannity’s criticism of the “deep state,” that is sometimes referred to by those people as the bureaucratic or administrative state, which is sort of true. But the “deep state” is really the national security state, the CIA-FBI-DOJ-NSA-military-industrial complex. Hannity LOVES the national security state. And as I’ve said before, if it was the Bush DOJ and FBI going after the Obama campaign with fraudulent FISA warrants to spy, Hannity would be on the side of suppressing any investigation of all that and would probably be on the side of the Bush apparatchiks, in my view.

And now we have Willard back in the news! Willard Mitt Romney, calling for Trump to be impeached and going by some secret Twitter account to give himself “likes” or whatever the hell he’s doing. Typical sleazebag, FOS Willard. Yes, that Willard Romney, the one who as governor of Massachusetts raised taxes and fees by hundreds of millions of dollars, and in his 2012 presidential run said regarding taxes that “everything is on the table,” including raising taxes on the wealthy, and who supported the Wall Street bailout while receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations from Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, received government subsidies for his Bain Capital, the one who colluded with Ted Kennedy to concoct a mandatory health insurance scheme for Massachusetts that was the model for the whole USSA Amerika, the one who said he supports the 2nd Amendment while at the same time opposes the 2nd Amendment, and Willard the fascist drug warrior, yes, that Willard Romney.

So, while Romney Willard has been critical of Trump for “Russia collusions” that never happened, and now wants Trump impeached for non-crimes with Ukraine, I’d like to know why there was never an investigation over why, as he was leaving as governor of Massachusetts, Romney had his staff remove computers and destroy hard drives from their office computers? What was he hiding and covering up? Was it the detailed information and emails regarding their concocting RomneyCare to impose on the people of Massachusetts? So, in my view Romney is just another criminal government scumbag, and when in March of 2016 he was criticizing Trump in that big speech as a “phony,” a “fraud,” a “fake,” and a “con man,” Willard was really talking about himself!

And would those talk radio sheeple please stop saying that while Romney is a “RINO,” a “Republican in Name Only,” he is nevertheless a “decent” guy, NO, he is NOT a “decent” guy, he is INdecent, a sleazy, corrupt, dishonest, BAD guy! Romney is the one who should be impeached!

You see, it’s the existence of that Leviathan apparatus in Warshington that attracts the worst of the worst to get that kind of illicit power and that enables the criminality and empowers the criminal element of society to “legally” steal from their neighbors and otherwise tyrannize innocent people. Again, decentralization is the real solution, and Rockwell’s 30-day plan is still a good idea. But it can be done in fewer than 30 days. Rothbard explains how and how not to decentralize. And that is what we need, so we can stop having to call this place, “USSA, Amerika.”

Democrats and Republicans (i.e. the “Government Party”) vs. the Libertarian Party

The Democrats had another debate this week. Here is a summary:

  • We want to steal more of your money.
  • We want to impose more regulations, restrictions, prohibitions, confiscations, mandates, requirements and intrusions into your lives, enforced at government gunpoint.

And that’s it. In other words, they are no different from the Republicans. Both the Rethugs and Demtards are just two parts of the one Government Party, in Warshington and all the smaller territories within good ol’ USA.

It’s the same thing election after election, year after year, with the Establishment parties, the one Government Party. It will never get better, only worse.

I know, a lot of conservatives and libertarians are fooled by the con man in the White House. His individual tax cuts expire in just a few years and he did that just to give you enough crumbs so you will vote for him next year. And Trump’s trade idiocy is causing uncertainty. The problem at the border, the drug addiction crisis and other societal problems have their roots in government interventionism, which Trump loves. He’s a central planning-loving kind of guy.

And the Republicans and Democrats are entrenched and enmeshed with the government. They make laws that protect their power and restrict other parties from competing and getting their foot in the door. The “news” media are all with that. So this is really a racket, and I mean a genuinely well-organized “legal” protection racket, a literally criminal organization, which is why the leaders of both Establishment parties need to be forced, maybe by a court and a decent judge if there are any in good ol’ USA, to change the laws to remove any and all restrictions on third parties’ rights to get names and candidates on ballots. If they don’t make such changes then those in control should be charged with racketeering, just like the organized crimesters they are.

And for all those reasons we need to take another look at the Libertarian Party. (I can’t believe I’m saying that.) And I don’t mean the Gary Johnson-Bill Weld Libertarian Party, but the Ron Paul-Harry Browne Libertarian Party. The “party of principle.”

And just recently I wrote a post referring to Jacob Hornberger who is contemplating a run for President as a Libertarian Party candidate. I don’t know if he necessarily agrees with my assertions about the Democrat-Republican criminal racket, but he is someone who does promote freedom, which is what the U.S. used to be all about.

In his speeches at recent state LP conventions, Hornberger included this statement:

We are not Republicans, and we are not Democrats. We are also not Republican-lites, and we are not Democrat-lites. We are not “socially liberal and economically conservative.” We are libertarians, and we need to fight as libertarians!

We live in a dysfunctional society, one in which there are soaring suicide rates, especially among young people, massive alcoholism and drug addiction, and mass killings for unexplainable reasons.

That shouldn’t surprise anyone, given the dysfunctional welfare-warfare state way of life that Republicans and Democrats have foisted upon our land. Republicans and Democrats both need to be taken to account for what they have done to our country with their system of mandated socialist charity, massive taxation, immoral and racially bigoted drug war, forever foreign wars, undeclared wars, wars of aggression and endless occupations, war on terrorism, torture, assassination, secret mass surveillance, national-security statism, interventionism, imperialism, monetary debasement, infringements on civil liberties, intrusions on privacy, trade wars, sanctions, embargoes, alliances with dictatorial regimes, foreign aid (i.e., bribery), coups, war on immigrants, managed and regulated economy, and out-of-control federal spending and debt, all which have brought death, suffering, economic and financial harm, and destruction of liberty to our land as well as to people in other parts of the world.

If we Libertarians continue adhering to principle, we have the potential of leading America out of the statist morass into which Republicans and Democrats have plunged our nation. By adhering to principle, we have the chance to lead our nation, and indirectly the world, to the highest reaches of freedom, peace, prosperity, harmony, and morality that mankind has ever seen.

In fact, Jacob Hornberger’s latest columns on non-interventionism are very good, too. In this column, he succinctly explains why interventionists won’t help the Kurds, and today he explains empire and interventionism vs. republic and non-interventionism.

Have We Advanced Farther Down the Road to Soviet Amerika?

The “Trump-Russia collusions”-“Trump and Russia hacking or manipulating 2016 election results” (that never actually happened and was all made up) seems to be an ongoing agenda by the national security state (a.k.a. “deep state”). This time a CIA spook with an anti-Trump agenda is exploiting a phone call with Trump and Ukrainian president involving alleged “quid pro quo” (which it wasn’t, according to the actual transcript) regarding Joe Biden’s son being investigated or not investigated, and using it as an excuse to make up more stuff and have members of the political class and the government-lapdog media endlessly repeat the hearsay, lies and propaganda toward removing Trump from office.

I think that Congressliar Adam Schiff is the worst of the worst when it comes to Soviet-wannabe government liars. They probably have something on Nancy Pelosi, who knows that a House impeachment of Trump will not get a Senate conviction, because the evidence that is available does not back the assertions of the CIA “whistleblower,” and that such a farce will only strengthen the chance of a Trump reelection. And now, after saying she also was against a Trump impeachment, Congressbimbo Tulsi Gabtard is now for a Trump impeachment. It was a botched joke.

What bothers me is the “Intel (sic) Community” changing the requirements for whistleblowers from having to have direct, first-hand knowledge (or evidence?) of improper (or illegal) behavior of other spooks or superiors, to being able to use second- or third-hand hearsay, rumor and gossip as is the case with the current allegations against Trump of pressuring foreign leaders to do something as a “quid pro quo” for political expediency.

So I’m not sure if all this is merely just an anti-Trump crusade or perhaps a part of a larger agenda to soften due process requirements against anyone who is accused of something. Particularly in the political world (which seems to be a large chunk of what Amerika is all about now, certainly not the economic or voluntary-exchange world).

For example, just as the flunkies of the DOJ, CIA and FBI made stuff up about Donald Trump to try to help Hillary Clinton win the 2016 election and if that didn’t work then make stuff up to try to take down the Trump presidency, in that regard the apparatchiks made stuff up about Brett Kavanaugh to derail his getting on the Supreme Bureaucrats. And don’t misunderstand me, I think that Kavanaugh should never have a judicial appointment given that his lower-court rulings show what a dangerous anti-America anti-due process police-state ignoramus he is. But, anyone who is accused of something has a right to require the accuser to bring forth evidence against the accused, regardless who the accused is. Trump, Kavanaugh, or you or me.

This is especially a cause for concern now because of the “Red Flag” laws already in place or that are being proposed all over Amerika. That’s mainly to do with the gun control lobby, hysterical snowflakes who can’t understand that it is the gun control laws and gun-free zones we already have in place that are disarming peaceful, responsible citizens and making the people defenseless in the event of a crazed shooter who doesn’t obey gun laws or any laws for that matter. The hysterical snowflakes just can’t seem to get through their damn noggins.

So now the hysterical snowflakes are acting as useful idiots for the police statists who want to have a government armed to the teeth ruling over a totally disarmed civilian population. This is the way that communists like “The Squad” can ram their agendas through and they will enforce their wealth-confiscation and industry-seizures at the point of a government gun against the enslaved and helpless population. Martial law? Civil unrest? In America? (Some people think I’m way off, or that I’m “paranoid.” But that is because they don’t know history.)

But the “Red Flag” laws will enable anyone to accuse anyone else of anything, particularly such victims who do not support the agenda of police state, industry-seizure and wealth-confiscation, i.e. slavery of the people by the elite political class. This is the real reason why “Red Flag” laws and all the greedy and power-hungry minions of the political class have all the voices of the mainstream corporate media on their side, repeating the propaganda over and over and over.

Don’t believe the propaganda, everyone. Just assume they are lying, or they are covering up the truth (or they are spreading false information because they are ignoramuses and/or brainwashed sheeple). And especially they do not have your interests at heart. If they did, they would be promoting freedom, freedom for you and freedom for me, and that necessarily means the dismantling of the federal regime apparatus, a full and complete decentralization of this whole territory, at the very least.

What Is Going On With This Ukraine Phone Call Stuff?

U.S. Rep. John Ratcliffe explains how the “whistleblower” complaint against Donald Trump regarding his phone call with the president of Ukraine is based on hearsay, “second- and third-hand” information.

An article on the Federalist explains how just last month the Intel (sic) Community secretly eliminated a requirement that whistleblowers provide direct, first-hand knowledge of alleged wrongdoings.

So the Intel Community’s flunkies in the mainstream media, many Democrats in Congress and even some Republicans including Willard Romney are pushing for impeaching Trump based solely on that phone call, and based on inadmissible hearsay “evidence.” Rep. Adam Schiffty read a fake transcript that he implied was the real one to fabricate a false narrative. Now that’s a scumbag.

Trump was not doing anything illegal, unconstitutional, unethical, or treasonous, in his phone call with the Ukrainian president. According to the Examiner, these are the main points of what Trump said:

I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike … I guess you have one of your wealthy people … The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you’re surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance, but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine. Whatever you can do, it’s very important that you do it if that’s possible.

I heard you had a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down and that’s really unfair. A lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your very good prosecutor down and you had some very bad people involved. Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man. He was the mayor of New York City, a great mayor, and I would like him to call you. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General. Rudy very much knows what’s happening and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him that would be great. The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news so I just want to let you know that. The other thing, There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me.

Meanwhile, the Democrats in 2018 asked the Ukrainian government to cooperate with the Mueller investigation of “Russia collusions” which never existed. Huh? The pot calling the kettle black?

Joe Lauria comments about a phone call between “Victoria Nuland, then assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, and Geoffrey Pyatt, then U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, that then Vice President Biden played a role in ‘midwifing’ the U.S.-backed overthrow of an elected Ukrainian government soon after that conversation.” Good one, Plugs.

And Caitlin Johnstone writes about the mainstream media defending “whisltleblowers” but ignoring actual whistleblowers.

The actual whistleblowers of our time include Bradley Manning (now known as Chelsea Manning), John Kiriakou, William Binney, Thomas Drake, Edward Snowden, and many others who are never defended or celebrated by the MSM, because they are not communists or apparatchiks of the national security state.

Now, I loathe Donald Trump and disagree with most of his awful socialist and fascist policies, but these scum in Washington are so bad and dishonest in their outright lying. The “news” media are real propagandists now.

Doh! Another. Democrat. Debate.

Apparently the Democrats had another debate. It was a long “three-hour tour,” and their 4th debate will be four hours and so on.

So, whether it’s their “Medicare for All” or “Climate Change” programs they want to impose, the main point of the Democrats’ programs is their greedy and envious wealth confiscation desires. Everything they want to do includes raising taxes on the productive and the workers i.e. stealing from the people.

And that’s the main point: like Thomas Piketty‘s best-seller, “Rather Than Helping People at the Bottom, Instead Let’s Pull People Down from the Top,” these greedy politicians just want to steal from the productive. And that’s it.

Their environmentalism and health care demagoguery is just a facade covering their real lust for stealing from others, their giving themselves and their cronies power over others and their enjoying the extravagances of all the wealth they use government apparatus to steal from the people. As Larken Rose would put it, these politician parasites don’t care about you, they don’t care if you have health care, and they don’t care if you suffer from climate change.

And with these fascists’ prohibitions, regulations and mandates they love control over others and another goal besides stealing from the people is their suppressing productivity. The motivation for their obsession with and lust for interfering with the lives, inventions, innovations, and progress of others is the same as why they want to steal from the wealthy, the successful and the productive: envy. It is a brainwashed ideology and fanaticism of envy, resentment and hatred of others that directs their thoughts, feelings and all their energy.

They are not that much different from their Rethuglican opponent Donald Trump who wants to interfere with the lives and productivity of foreigners that’s supposedly in the name of “protecting America’s interests,” via his anti-immigration fascism/socialism, which itself is based on myths and fairy tales. But we can leave the immigration issue for a different discussion.

And besides the government central-planning policies of the Envycrats, they also live in a world of ignorance and denial when it comes to the gun rights issue. “Beto” O’Rourke says he wants to take away people’s guns that are shooting people in Walmarts and other areas. So he agrees with Walmart and other stores who are asking customers to not carry guns into their stores. The reason for this request is that Walmart and the other stores want to disarm law-abiding people and make them defenseless sitting ducks when the next shooting occurs.

What? They don’t want that? So they’re just ignorant and in denial? They don’t understand that gun control laws and gun-free zones only disarm people who obey the law.

Sorry for sounding like a broken record on this. Criminals who want to go shoot up a place don’t care if it’s illegal to go shoot up a place. They don’t care if murder, assault, rape and robbery are illegal, so obviously they won’t care if guns are illegal. They’re criminals. Criminals don’t obey the law.

Criminals will get their guns illegally, on the black market, just as the drug laws for the past 60 years have not prevented people from getting their drugs.

And regarding the gun-free zones, 98% of the mass shooters have gone to do their shooting in gun-free zones. Sorry for sounding like a broken record on this. Too bad “Beto” and all the other hysterical people out there do not seem to have that much of an attention span. These selfish hypocritical politicians benefit from arming themselves or having armed security guards, but they want to disarm the commoners.

Anyway, it sounds like some of the sheeple are now favoring Elizabeth Warren, never mind her shrill lecturing, her pandering to every special interest group she could think of. Go away, Liawatha. Please.

Then there was Kamala Harris — Is she on some kind of tranquilizer? Her poking fun at people on the Wizard of Oz was very unbecoming. That was one of my favorite movies. And Harris has this evil-sounding laugh. The anti-Oz remark was especially unladylike.

These horrible people all seem to be in agreement to steal more earnings away from the people and disarm them. Can you imagine having a bodyguard and walking down the street when a robber approaches you and demands your money, your bodyguard helps the robber, not you. That is what government in Washington is.

And Joe Biden? I think he has Alzheimer’s, and I don’t mean that in a derogatory or ageist kind of way like the annoying Julian Castro seemed to do at the debate. Biden has clearly lost some of his cognitive functioning, including his brain-to-mouth motor coordination when he talks. At times he has sounded just like my father (without the socialist claptrap) during his last year or two. And the latest thing I heard was that Biden will release his medical records, and the news mentioned that he takes statin drugs. (Uh-oh, says Bill Sardi and this Reuters article, on statins.)

I think the best ones at the recent debate were Marianne Williamson and Tulsi Gabbard. (Wait, they weren’t at the debate. Sorry. They were still the best ones at that debate.)
