• Four in 10 Americans Say Socialism Is A Good Thing

    Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country, Gallup’s report. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion.

    Previous Gallup research shows that Americans’ definition of socialism has changed over the years, with nearly one in four now associating the concept with social equality and 17% associating it with the more classical definition of having some degree of government control over the means of production.

  • Ocasio-Cortez: “Growing Cauliflower in Community Gardens is ‘Colonial'”

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said in an instagram video that growing cauliflower in community gardens is part of the “colonial” attitudes.

    “What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” she said.

    “So that’s really how you do it right. That is such a core component of the Green New Deal is having all of these projects make sense in a cultural context, and it’s an area that we get the most pushback on because people say, ‘Why do you need to do that? That’s too hard.’”

    “But when you really think about it — when someone says that it’s ‘too hard’ to do a green space that grows Yucca instead of, I don’t know, cauliflower or something — what you’re doing is you’re taking a colonial approach to environmentalism,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Investigative reporter Sara A. Carter pointed to Trisha Anderson’s testimony.

  • Guatemala: How Traffickers Take Advantage of Border Crisis

    As President Trump continues to battle what he describes as a do nothing congress for a solution to fix the ongoing border crisis, cartels and human trafficking organizations are taking advantage of the situation. They are using the U.S. laws to perpetuate illegal immigration, promising potential migrants guaranteed access to the U.S. from Guatemala where they say they will find work, as long as they claim asylum.

    The evidence is ripe. The roads are barren, stores and homes are empty and those left behind say they are living in “with ghosts.” The residents of Santa Rosa De Lima, Guatemala spoke to SaraACarter.com on a recent trip to the region.

  • Romney: Mueller Report Does Not Contain Evidence Of Obstruction

    Mitt Romney (R-UT) had an interview with Jake Tapper for CNN’s State of the Union. Tapper asked Romney about the Mueller report and the backclash he and Rep. Justin Amash are receiving from republicans for coming out and condemning president’s behavior.

    “Well I think every individual has to make their own judgment. I think it helps to actually have read the entire document [Mueller report]. It’s a long document. It took me two full days to get through it, and the second volume is more difficult to get through than the first. So, hopefully more people read it,” said Romney.

    “My own view is that Justin Amash has reached a different conclusion than I have.

  • GOP Rep. Amash Attacks Trump and Barr: Says President’s Actions Meet Threshold For Impeachment

    The following statement was made today by Republican Representative Justin Amash on twitter:

    Here are my principal conclusions:

    1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report.
    2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.
    3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances.
    4. Few members of Congress have read the report.

    I offer these conclusions only after having read Mueller’s redacted report carefully and completely, having read or watched pertinent statements and testimony, and having discussed this matter with my staff, who thoroughly reviewed materials and provided me with further analysis.

    In comparing Barr’s principal conclusions, congressional testimony, and other statements to Mueller’s report, it is clear that Barr intended to mislead the public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s analysis and findings.

  • Papadopoulos: FBI Tried To Get My Wife To Wear a Wire ‘To Try To Entrap Me’

    George Papadopoulos said to Laura Ingraham on Thursday that the FBI tried to get his wife to wear a wire to “entrap” him. He also said that Congress “probably has transcripts” of meetings he had that would prove he was spied on by the FBI.

    Papadopoulos believes his wife was targeted because she knew all about academic Joseph Mifsud’s connection to Italian government.

    “But what we believed that they really targeted her for is, we believe she knew all about Joseph Mifsud’s connections to the Italian government and his connections in Europe, which we just found out today that … the prime minister … just fired the heads of three intel agencies in Italy.

    Barr set down in an exclusive interview with Bill Hemmer on Fox News in the country of El Salvador.

    “I’ve been trying to get answers to the questions and I’ve found that a lot of the answers have been inadequate and some of the explanations I’ve gotten don’t hang together, in a sense I have more questions today than when I first started,” said Barr.

    Barr believes that the American people need to “find out what the government was doing during that period.

    Mark Cuban was interviewed by Scott Wapner on CNBC on Tuesday. When asked about 2020 race and whether he’d consider running, he left open the possibility saying: “We’ll see.”

    “We’ll see what happens. It would take the perfect storm for me to do it,” the owner of Dallas Mavericks said. “There’s some things that could open the door, but I’m not projecting or predicting it right now.”
