It’s really troublesome that the media hasn’t yet picked up on the theme of the Democrats talking points in the era of Trump.
The Democrats are liars and manipulators who constantly try to play on the fears of the American people.
For almost every major (and even a few minor) piece of legislation (or judicial nominee) that the GOP, or President Trump, supports, the Democrats respond with… ‘but Millions will Die!’
Don’t believe me?
Let’s do some recapping, shall we?
1. The Paris Climate Change Accords
Liberals argued that if we pulled out of the Paris Climate Change Accords that President Obama illegally (entering into a treat without consent of the legislature is unconstitutional and non-binding) entered us into, that millions of people would die.
Here’s leftwing billionaire Tom Steyer:

An editor from Vice News claimed all of our children would die because we weren’t in the Paris Accords anymore. (She later deleted the tweet.)

And Finally here’s Scientific America claiming that our stepping out of the accords would turn the world into a desolate wasteland.

2. Trump’s Tax Reform
Former Clinton advisor and leftwing economist Larry Summers poo-pooed President Trump’s tax plan, saying it would kill millions of people. Instead of death and destruction, the President’s tax plan has put more money back into people’s pockets, help reinvigorate the economy, led to an explosion in jobs, and the first real wage increases we’ve seen in a decade. If that’s mayhem… i’m not sure what these liberals think the word means.
Here are a few other lefties promising doom and gloom.
Nancy Pelosi: "[Tax reform] does violence to the vision of our Founders."
This is categorically false.
— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) December 20, 2017
And Nancy again, this time saying that the tax bill would be ‘the end of the world.’ Seriously.
“No, it is the end of the world. The debate on health care is life, death. This is Armageddon. This is a very big deal, because you know why? There’s really a very hard way to come back from this. They take us further, more deeply into debt. What can you do but raise taxes? They throw a few crumbs to the middle class. What they give with one hand they take away in bounty with the other.”
By the way, the “end of the world” stuff wasn’t the only lie the Democrats were telling. Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) tried to argue that some middle class Americans would actually get tax INCREASES. Boy, was she wrong.
A few weeks before the vote, rising Democratic star and many on the left’s favored 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris spread the false claim that all middle class families making less than $86,000 a year would get a tax increase. The claim ended up getting slammed even by the left-leaning Washington Post, who gave Harris and the Democrats who produced the fake talking point Four Pinocchios.
3. Obamacare Repeal
When the Republicans tried to repeal Obamacare, the Democrats immediately claimed that it would lead to hell on earth in the USA. Socialist Bernie Sanders (I-VT) (recently, the runner-up for Presidential candidate from the Democrat Party) argued that doing so would be worse than having another 9/11 every year.
“Now obviously nobody can predict exactly how many people will die if they lose their coverage. Nobody can make that prediction. But what experts at the Harvard School of Public Health estimate, is that if 23 million Americans were to be thrown off the insurance they currently have, which is what the House bill would do, up to, up to 28,000 Americans every single year could die. That is nine times more than the tragic losses we suffered on 9/11, every single year.”
And more from Bernie, via the Daily Wire:
Socialist loonbag Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) raged, “If this legislation is passed and millions of people are thrown off health insurance … thousands of Americans will die.” He continued, “I think that legislation is disgusting. It is immoral. It must be defeated and I hope there is enough sense amongst some of the Republicans.”
Thankfully, even the liberal Washington Post couldn’t stomach Bernie’s lies, giving him 4 Pinocchio’s for his slander against the GOP.
But as Forbes explained, the idea that repealing Obamacare would “kill” anyone was patently absurd. The vast majority of those who would lose their Obamacare insurance are actually also enrolled in Medicaid, meaning that almost no one would involuntarily “lose” their healthcare coverage because of Obamacare reform.
4. Ending Net Neutrality
Net Neutrality was only thing for about two years. From June 2016 to June 2018 the Obama-era FCC attempted to give the government control of the Internet, ostensibly to ‘keep the internet free.’ If you give it any thought, the idea is nonsense. How could giving government control over something make it more “free.” That’s illogical. Regulating things, by definition, makes them less “free.”
So when President Trump was elected and the FCC leadership changed their first major decision was to end net neutrality and return the Internet to it’s previous state of absolute freedom. This move sent the left into an apoplectic fit of nonsensical rage. (Here are 7 reasons that net neutrality is idiotic.) They began arguing that by ending net neutrality Republicans were ushering in the destruction a free and fair Internet! The web as we knew it would never be the same… oddly, none of the doom and gloom has come to pass. Even more interesting, all of the worries that net neutrality supporters have long worried about… have never been a problem. Ever.
But still the Democrats fear-mongered.
Here’s Chuck Schumer (D-NY) comparing ending net neutrality to toll roads (meanwhile he comes from a state covered in toll roads, and toll roads are a leftwing idea):
If #NetNeutrality is eliminated, the Internet may start to resemble a toll road, with the highest bidders cruising along private “fast lanes” while the rest of us inch along a single, traffic-choked public lane.
— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) December 14, 2017
Here’s another stupid lefwing argument:
Ben Shapiro explains why most of the left’s outrage is simply unreasonable.
Here’s what’s not reasonable: the suggestion that your internet use is likely to change radically from what it was in 2015, before net neutrality went into effect. Here’s what else isn’t reasonable: people of the Left who think that Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter operate fine in the free market, and that consumers don’t have to worry about discrimination thanks to open competition, but that the same doesn’t apply to ISPs.
In any case, the doom and gloom are wildly overstated. If we really wanted to open up the internet, we’d truly need to focus not on national policy and major corporations, but on local regulatory regimes that restrict the building of new broadband networks.
Without net neutrality the Internet is truly free. If corporations begin monopolizing our access to the Internet, we already have a recourse through the government’s power to break up monopolies. The left’s answer to their fears of tech industry control of the internet, by handing control to the government, is actually worse than the problem itself.
Finally, the latest GOP-led issue that Democrats say will kill millions…
5. Nominating Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
I’m not even sure how Democrats are connecting their dots here, but i’ll let you try to figure that out for yourself.
Here’s former Virginia Governor and longtime Clinton flunky Terry McAuliffe:
The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh will threaten the lives of millions of Americans for decades to come and will morph our Supreme Court into a political arm of the right-wing Republican Party.
— Terry McAuliffe (@TerryMcAuliffe) July 10, 2018
Nonsens. Here’s more nonsense, from the so-called “Women’s March”:
Let your Senators know: there is nothing moderate about stripping rights away from women.
TAKE ACTION HERE: https://t.co/ZgYBcswHVZ
— Women's March (@womensmarch) July 10, 2018
And finally, Kavanaugh is a threat to MILLIONS because… birth control?:
Forget abortion or same-sex marriage—contraception could be banned under Justice Kavanaugh https://t.co/W8qg7txtFQ
— Justin Miller (@justinjm1) July 10, 2018
David French at the National Review was floored by these ridiculous and inane concerns from the left:
Keep in mind, this is for a nominee so mainstream — so much a part of the conventional Republican establishment — that it’s easy to imagine a President Rubio or a President Jeb Bush putting him on the Supreme Court. He’s not remotely radical. His jurisprudence is squarely within the originalist tradition, and the main critique endured during the run-up to his nomination (including from me) was that he was too safe, that the Court needed a bolder choice.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh was the safest, least bold, choice that President Trump could have made. If he, a mainstream judge with a long history of mainstream legal opinions (He’s so milquetoast that Current Justice, Elena Kagan, hired him to work for her at Harvard Law!), is to controversial to be easily confirmed… then the Democrats have lost all perspective on the Court and on American jurisprudence.
But Kavanaugh isn’t the story here. The point to all of this is that over the last year and a half, Democrats have repeatedly claimed that GOP-led issues would lead to death, destruction, and calamity (even Armageddon). Yet, none of that has come to pass
Normal Americans are beginning to wonder just how insane the fear-mongering from the left is going to get?

California Shutdown: Rogan Makes The Case For Moving To Texas
Joe Rogan says he is sincerely considering relocating from California to Texas in response to the state’s overly “restrictive” response to the and its “ridiculous” taxes.
“Here’s the thing, if California continues to be restrictive, I don’t know if this is a good place to live. First of all, it’s extremely expensive — the taxes here are ridiculous.”
On his popular podcast show Wednesday, host and comedian Joe Rogan said he is seriously considering relocating from California to Texas in response to the deep-blue state’s overly “restrictive” response to the and its “ridiculous” taxes.
“I might move to Texas,” Rogan said, citing serious previous discussions he’s had about it (video below).
“Here’s the thing, if California continues to be restrictive, I don’t know if this is a good place to live,” said the popular podcast host. “First of all, it’s extremely expensive — the taxes here are ridiculous.”
“And if they really say that we can’t do standup until 2022, or some sh** like that, I might jet,” he continued. “I’m not kidding. I’m not kidding. This is silly. I don’t need to be here.”
“The only reason why I’m here is because I’m close to people like you,” he added. “A lot of my friends live here, the [Comedy] Store is here. But if they won’t let us do the Store, but we can do stand up in other places, why would we stay here?”
Asked where in Texas he would consider moving, Rogan cited Austin and Dallas as potential landing spots. “I like Austin a lot, I like Dallas a lot. I like Houston, but I don’t know if I’d live in Houston,” he said, noting the humidity in the area. More

Toy Gun Causes Chaos After Zoom Class: ‘My Poor Kids Thought We Were Going To Be Arrested.”
Sheila Perez Smith told the Todd Starnes Show that she was astonished when the police showed up at her home after a zoom class another parent had been “very uncomfortable” with a toy gun in plain sight during the class.

There’s really nothing worse than neighbors ratting out neighbors. But that’s what Democrats are urging citizens to do across the country. And more often than not innocent Americans are getting caught in the crosshairs.
Sheila Perez Smith tells the Todd Starnes Show that she was stunned when the police showed up at her home near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Mrs. Smith’s 7-year-old son had just completed a zoom class from the den of their home when she received an urgent email from her son’s first grade teacher.
It just so happened that the little boy had recently been gifted a toy gun and the child had placed his “new favorite thing” on the table next to the computer.
“Another parent had been very uncomfortable by the fact that the gun had been in view of the zoom call,” Mrs. Smith said on my radio show. “It’s such an innocent thing that someone used to make a judgment and an accusation.”
A few hours after they received the email, there was a knock at the front door. It was the police. More

Dennis Prager: Our Dress Rehearsal For A Police State
It truly is disconcerting how easily Americans have accepted erosion of our freedoms and civil rights in the name of public safety.
Dennis Prager says this is our dress rehearsal for a police state.
“The federal, state, county and city governments are now restricting almost every freedom except those of travel and speech. Americans have been banned from going to work (and thereby earning a living), meeting in groups (both indoors and outdoors), meeting in their cars in church parking lots to pray, and entering state-owned properties such as beaches and parks — among many other prohibitions.”

All my life, I have dismissed paranoids on the right (“America is headed to communism”) and the left (“It can happen here” — referring to fascism). It’s not that I’ve ever believed liberty was guaranteed. Being familiar with history and a pessimist regarding the human condition, I never believed that.
But the ease with which police state tactics have been employed and the equal ease with which most Americans have accepted them have been breathtaking.
People will argue that a temporary police state has been justified because of the allegedly unique threat to life posed by the new coronavirus. I do not believe the data will bear that out. Regardless, let us at least agree that we are closer to a police state than ever in American history.
“Police state” does not mean totalitarian state. America is not a totalitarian state; we still have many freedoms. In a totalitarian state, this article could not be legally published, and if it were illegally published, I would be imprisoned and/or executed.
But we are presently living with all four of the key hallmarks of a police state:
No. 1: Draconian laws depriving citizens of elementary civil rights. More
This is no dress rehearsal for a police state. In many states that is exactly what we already have. Dennis Prager is correct, the most frightening part is how quickly the American public has allowed it to happen.
Candace Owens Suspended from Twitter for Weighing in on Michigan Lockdown
This is the authoritarian technocracy at work, folks.
We need to stop thinking about social media as a place where we can freely express ourselves, and begin to ponder ways in which we can utilize these platforms to gauge tyranny.
You see, you can’t just say whatever you want on Twitter anymore. Or Facebook. Or even Instagram. Your thoughts are being monitored, and if your opinions are considered “invalid”, they will be removed from the conversation.
This will occur in spite of the business and exposure that you bring to the platform as well, so don’t think that being a big-name online is going to save you from the agenda set forth by these Orwellian clowns.
Conservative firebrand and BLEXIT founder Candace Owens was suspended from Twitter on Saturday after tweeting that people in Michigan should open their businesses and “go to work” despite the draconian measures implemented by Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) in response to the Chinese virus.
“Apparently [Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer] believes she is a duly elected dictator of a socialist country,” Owens had tweeted. “The people of Michigan need to stand up to her. Open your businesses. Go to work.”
“The police think she’s crazy too,” she added. “They are not going to arrest 10,000,000 people for going to work.”
Owens wasn’t even given an actual explanation.
On Saturday, Owens received a notification from Twitter informing her that her account was suspended over the aforementioned tweet.
“We determined this Tweet violated the Twitter Rules, specifically for:” read the notification, but did not further clarify which specific rules Owens had violated on the social media platform.

Tucker Exposes How MSM And Dems Appear To Be Parroting Chinese Propaganda
Fox News host Tucker Carlson exposed how the media and Democrats appear to be parroting Chinese propaganda.
“Many in the intelligence world with experience in China suspected right away that the story the Chinese government was telling about this virus was almost certainly a lie.”
Tucker nails it!

— (((Jason Rantz))) on KTTH Radio (@jasonrantz) April 18, 2020
Fox News host Tucker Carlson aired a segment that showed how a lot of the rhetoric being used by the mainstream media and Democratic Party matches the propaganda that the communist Chinese government is using to deflect blame over the coronavirus outbreak.
Carlson began the segment by reporting on what he says U.S. government officials have told him about the coronavirus outbreak that originated in China, and by also documenting how China has repeatedly changed its story about what happened.
Later in the segment, Carlson said, “As of today, says someone in a position to know, there is ‘Almost unanimous agreement in the American intelligence gathering agencies that the virus currently destroying much of the world emerged from a lab in Wuhan.’ Almost unanimous. That is a phrase almost never used to describe any conclusion coming out of the Intel Community.” More
All hysteria aside this virus originated in China—it’s a Chinese virus period. The MSM is the most despicable group of people on the planet.
The fact that they would pick up this propaganda and spread it without looking at the facts is a disgrace and a disservice to people who want to know the truth. They don’t really care about Americans.

Bernie Tells Americans Exactly What Will Make Him Drop Out
The Democratic Party’s been trying to stop him for months, and now Bernie has told them exactly how to do it.
The Democratic Party is beginning to run out of time. They have only a few scant weeks to get their ducks in a row before the Democratic National Convention in order to avoid an abomination of a nomination.
The issue now is that the Democratic voters are clearly favoring Bernie Sanders for the nod, while the party establishment appears to be shoving Joe Biden down everyone’s throats. The friction has been a bit ugly to watch, like a slow motion fender bender that will see you rescheduling your entire afternoon before you know it.
But Sanders, to his credit, has been fairly honest about the process. He’s explained his expectations to his supporters explicitly, and has now told us precisely what would make him consider leaving the race altogether.
From his appearance on MSNBC earlier this week:
RACHEL MADDOW: If, at the end of the day, it turns out that Vice President Biden is going to have more delegates than you do heading into the convention, will you drop out?
SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Of course I’m gonna drop out; he will win. I mean, I suspect, we will run through the process, and I think people have a right to vote. But if Biden walks into the convention, or at the end of the process has more votes than me, he’s the winner.
MADDOW: And that’s true whether or not he has a majority or a just plurality?
SEN. SANDERS: Absolutely, that’s what I’ve said. Look, here’s the story, and there’s some confusion about this. Last time around in 2016, you talked about 2016, you’ll remember that before the very first vote was cast in Iowa, Hillary Clinton had 500 superdelegates at her side. She walked into the campaign with 500 superdelegates. I thought that was totally outrageous, absurd, and undemocratic. We fought very hard in the Democratic rules process to get rid of all superdelegates. That is my preference. I think it should be the decision of the people, not Washington insiders. We lost, but what we did get is not getting rid of all super delegates at the convention voting, but that on the first ballot there won’t be any superdelegates voting.
And there you have it, Democratic Deep State: The surefire way to make Bernie Sanders go away is to actually beat him in the primary. Who would have thunk it?
