U.S. Coast Guard Intercepts Highlight Growing Drug Submarine Epidemic

I’m all for going after drug smugglers… but don’t piss on our leg and tell us it’s raining…

“Even in international waters crewing an unregistered semi-submersible is illegal. This may actually increase the safety of the crews. Previously crews attempted to scuttle the boat because without the cocaine no crime could be proven. But now merely being on the low profile boat is illegal, so there is less incentive to abandon ship. Staying aboard and awaiting capture reduces the risk of drowning.”

Heart Full of Love: Pelosi unloads on reporter who asked if she hates Trump…

Nancy and Joe are both a bit on edge today…. she handles it a little better than Joe did… he had >nothing< other a completely look stunned deer in the headlights look… told a constituent he was a “God damned liar” for asking the question everyone in America needs to hear him answer and then challenged him to pushups.

At least Nancy has a heart full of love for Trump and prays for him all the time…. and we can all remember her daughter speaking so fondly of her.

“As a Catholic, I resent you using the word ‘hate’ in a sentence that addresses me,” she added. “I don’t hate anyone. I was raised in a way that is a heart full of love and always pray for the president. And I still pray for the president. I pray for the president all the time. So don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that.”

Matt Gaetz Discredits Impeachment Hearings Law Professors

“Gaetz established that all the professors supported Democratic presidential candidates and most had given them thousands of dollars. He asked them to raise their hands if they had any personal knowledge of any material facts from Congressman Adam Schiff’s impeachment report. All hands stayed down. And he noted that at least two of them had been calling for Trump’s impeachment for years”

A Facebook rumor about white vans is creating fear across America – CNN

“Terrifying rumors initially propelled by Facebook’s algorithms have sparked fears that men driving white vans are kidnapping women all across the United States for sex trafficking and to sell their body parts. While there is no evidence to suggest this is happening, much less on a national, coordinated scale, a series of viral Facebook (FB) posts created a domino effect that led to the mayor of a major American city issuing a warning based on the unsubstantiated claims.

The latest online-induced panic shows how viral Facebook posts can stoke paranoia and make people believe that spotting something as common as a white van, can be deemed suspicious and connected to a nationwide cabal.”

Bloomberg: You know who has an accountable and ecologically enlightened government?

“Bloomberg: China is doing a lot. Yes, they’re still building a lot of coal-fired power plants.

Hoover: And they’re still burning coal.
Bloomberg: Yes, they are, but they’re now moving plants away from the cities. The Communisty Party wants to stay in power in China, and they listen to the public. When the public says I can’t breathe the air, Xi Jinping is not a dictator; he has to satisfy his constituents or he’s not going to survive.

Hoover: He’s not a dictator?

Bloomberg: No, he has a constituency to answer to.

Hoover: He doesn’t have a vote. He doesn’t have a democracy. He’s not held accountable by voters.

Bloomberg: If his advisers gave him —

Hoover: Is the check on him just a revolution?

Bloomberg: You’re not going to have a revolution. No government survives without the will of the majority of its people.”

Why Nazism Was Socialism and Why Socialism Is Totalitarian

“When one remembers that the word “Nazi” was an abbreviation for “der Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiters Partei — in English translation: the National Socialist German Workers’ Party — Mises’s identification might not appear all that noteworthy. For what should one expect the economic system of a country ruled by a party with “socialist” in its name to be but socialism?

Nevertheless, apart from Mises and his readers, practically no one thinks of Nazi Germany as a socialist state. It is far more common to believe that it represented a form of capitalism, which is what the Communists and all other Marxists have claimed.”
