On 5 year anniversary of Michael Browns death Democrats revise history

Michael Brown was a bully and a thug. He had just robbed a convenience store and assaulted the owner when he took to the street. There, he was confronted by a Ferguson police officer who remained in is car. Brown reached in and tried to take the officer’s firearm. He was shot and killed.

These are the facts of the case of Michael Brown which, before the facts were known, sparked outrage from anti-police activists who converged on Ferguson, Missouri.  It was the dawn of “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” which became a mantra for the movement. But the story that Brown said these words was later recanted. Nevertheless, the mantra remains popular even today.

Brown’s death was a tragedy, but it’s no longer logical or truthful to classify it as a murder. The officer involved in the shooting has been exonerated, and as more facts emerged, the picture of a “gentle giant” the activists tried to paint had more holes in it than Swiss cheese.

But that’s not stopping Democratic candidates for president from revising history to redact his criminal history, the exoneration of the police officer, or the reality that he attacked the officer and tried to take control of his firearm. To them, these facts are mere roadblocks in promoting the narrative that Michael Brown was murdered in cold blood by a racist cop and by golly something still needs to be done about it.

The reactions of presidential hopefuls ranged from semi-lucid to outright lies. Here are the ones who at least didn’t call it a murder.

But two candidates took it to the realm of bald-faced lies. Michael Brown was not murdered, which requires intent. He was killed in self-defense after attacking multiple people, including the police officer who shot him. But that narrative doesn’t play as well as the murder narrative being pushed by Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren:

Even on the anniversary of the tragic events in Ferguson, Democrats continue to change the narrative – and history – for the sake of political expediency. The two who called Michael Brown’s death “murder” should be ashamed of themselves.

False premises: Gun control push after mass shootings is like the Iraq War after 9/11

False premises Gun control push after mass shootings is like the Iraq War after 911

Al Qaeda attacked us on 9/11, so let’s invade Iraq. Most Americans fell for this false logic before President George W. Bush embarked the American military on indefinite actions in the Middle East. It was false and they knew it, but they found intelligence speculating about weapons of mass destruction and ran with it. This was an emotional response to a problem, a response that did not offer a solution to the triggering event.

Today, Democrats have taken on the mantle of establishing false premises to promote seemingly related parts of their agenda. Just as Americans were conned into thinking invading Iraq was somehow going to prevent the next 9/11, Democrats are trying to con us again into believing their legislation is going to stop the next mass shooter. But the facts don’t jibe with their claims. The legislation many Democrats are pushing through is for universal background checks. They’re playing on American ignorance to get their agenda done.

Representative Veronica Escobar’s constituents are the ones affected by the El Paso shooter. This is why she’s being looked to by her caucus to lead the charge to push Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to bring their legislation to the Senate floor. But instead of representing the people of El Paso, she’s using their suffering to guilt Republicans into falling in line with their legislation.

Here’s an inconvenient fact: Had the legislation been in place before the shooting, it would have had zero effect on the outcome. The alleged shooter passed a background check. Why didn’t it stop him? Because in most situations like these, background checks do not work. The purpose of background checks is to prevent criminals and known mentally ill individuals from acquiring firearms. They’re already in place. The legislation to make them “universal” will only harm private sellers and add a new layer of bureaucracy to the mix.

But that fact isn’t stopping Escobar from misleading the people of El Paso into thinking the legislation would have helped them. She knows it wouldn’t and she hopes her constituents are too stupid to realize this.

If we want to slow gun violence, there are ways without gun control. If anything, laws should be looser, not stricter. But Democrats continue to lie to promote their agenda. Their reason: You never let a serious crisis go to waste.

Will any Democrats emerge from the bottom like Ted Cruz in 2015?

Will any Democrats emerge from the bottom like Ted Cruz in 2015

In the middle of August, 2015, Senator Cruz was in the middle of the pack for the Republican nomination for President. Despite having strong fundraising, he had held back on spending much as others pushed to gain early polling bumps. According the the August Rasmussen poll, Cruz was in 7th place, trailing Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Scott Walker, and even Carly Fiorina. His ranking on betting sites had him even lower with John Kasich and Chris Christie showing better odds of winning the nomination.

By March the following year, he was second to Trump and appeared to be the only candidate who had a shot of beating him. Campaign mistakes, poor coverage by mainstream media, and the audacious style that has become President Trump’s trademark killed off the young Senator’s chances, but his rise from the middle of crowded pack to come in 2nd is noteworthy.

Is there a Ted Cruz in the mix today for the Democrats? Joe Biden enjoys a strong lead. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren combine to match him, so it’s assumed one will drop out and throw support to the other. Kamala Harris still looks strong despite polling losses this month. Pete Buttigieg rounds out the bottom of the top tier candidates, holding on at 5%-10% in most polls.

As for the rest, which one is the 2020 Cruz? Will it be Beto O’Rourke, who has relaunched his campaign (again) to focus on calling everything in America racist? How about Andrew Yang, the businessman who’s going to give everyone $1000 per month? Can Cory Booker finally crack the top tier soon? If it’s going to be anyone, it will be one of these three. The other candidates simply haven’t been noticed by voters or the media.

Perhaps the better question to ask is if there are any Rick Santorum’s among the Democrats. At this point in 2011, Santorum was at 1%. He ended up coming in second to Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination.

Bernie Sanders blames high cost of college for seniors going bankrupt

Bernie Sanders blames high cost of college for seniors going bankrupt

To all of you 68-year-old college freshmen out there, Bernie Sanders wants your vote. He feels your plight. He recognizes the crushing effect of the high cost of college and how it’s making your go bankrupt. All you want is a degree so you can get a job to pay for socialism in your golden years, and the system is against you. But not with Bernie. Bernie will save you.

All snark aside, it’s true that seniors are going bankrupt, but it’s not because of pensions being cut (something that was essentially cured over a decade ago) or high cost of college. It’s true that healthcare costs are a driving force. Bernie got that one right. What he doesn’t indicate is how the five-fold increase in bankruptcies is a direct result of Obamacare’s cost-driving effects on health insurance and medical costs.

This is why the greatest lie the Democrats are seemingly being allowed to get away with is that their plan is what will fix the broken healthcare system. Medicare-for-All and the other proposals are all advancements on Obamacare. They take things further to the left. After seeing what a little progressive healthcare can do, why would Americans want to double down on it? Who wants twice the failure?

It’s hard to tell which is worse: That Bernie blames high college costs for senior citizens going bankrupt or that millions of Democrats are nodding their heads instead of scratching them.
