Script:

Why is socialism so popular?

Less than ten years ago you couldn’t refer to “socialism” in a positive way and hope to have a career in American politics.

Socialism was referred to as the “s” word.

Now it is affirmed, either explicitly or implicitly, by just about everyone on the Left.

And, amazingly, given socialism’s record of failure, the socialists seem to be gaining ground.

Why? What makes socialism so attractive to so many?

Socialism, according to its proponents, is more democratic and therefore more moral than capitalism.

Leftist filmmaker Michael Moore explains it for us.

“Democratic socialism means everyone has a seat at the table and everybody gets a slice of the pie.”

The famed socialist writer Irving Howe wrote something similar in his 1982 autobiography, “We believe that the democracy…in our political life should also be extended deeply into economic life.”

The basic idea here is that socialism is vindicated through its ro..

Not long ago, the idea of Americans tearing down Abraham Lincoln's statue was unthinkable. Then it actually happened. And another in Portland just this week. Here's why Lincoln deserves to be remembered.

Until COVID, we had been living in a golden age in America—and it's easy to take such a privileged life for granted. The unemployment rate had been at an all-time low (particularly for minorities). But Americans need to understand how important it is to earn your way through life, rather than be given everything. Dennis explains.

Brandon Tatum grew up idolizing sports figures like Michael Jordan. After his own dreams of playing in the NFL fell apart on draft day, he was devastated—until a fateful encounter with a new kind of hero helped him discover a new calling as a police officer. But when the nation’s leaders and the media turned against law enforcement, Brandon struggled to reconcile his own experiences with their anti-police rhetoric and began questioning everything he was taught about how he should think as a black man in America.

WalkAway founder Brandon Straka’s political opinions were once wrapped up entirely in his homosexual identity. But after a profound healing experience at an AA meeting, his resentment for heterosexual and conservative people melted away. With a clear mind and open heart, he was soon awakened to the narrative of hate and division that he had bought into. Now free to finally think for himself and honestly investigate the truth, his world turned upside down.

“Higher education kind of destroyed me.” Gina Florio graduated Harvard University as an angry atheist taught to hate America. So much so that she abandoned her birth country for Australia. When a freak accident sent her back to the U.S., a video by Candace Owens, then others by Dave Rubin and PragerU, opened her eyes to the lies she had been believing all of those terrible years. This is Gina’s story of discovering truth and reclaiming her freedom.

Black Lives Matter and the left-wing media narrative of what black Americans are supposed to be and believe left Amir Odom fearful, believing lies, and deeply unhappy. When a date became a BLM debate, he was challenged to watch a few videos presenting actual data. Empowered by truth, Amir transformed from victim to victor. He hopes his message will reach other young black Americans who have fallen prey to BLM and their dangerous, divisive agenda.

What’s the best way to protect the rights of workers? Let them determine their own job preferences, or mandate that companies provide them with certain protections? California has chosen to take the latter path. Has it worked? Is it a victory for workers, or a debilitating defeat? Patrice Onwuka of the Independent Women’s Forum looks into these questions. Her findings may surprise you.

Workers of the world unite—to protect your freedom.

You have nothing to lose, but your jobs...  

Which is exactly what is happening in California. 

And threatening to spread to the rest of the country. 

Just what we need, right? 

Fewer jobs and fewer people employed. 

Why is this happening?

Exhibit A:

Assembly Bill 5 or AB5, as it’s commonly known.

Passed by the California legislature in September of 2019, AB5 was authored by a former union boss Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez. The stated goal was to protect freelance workers from employers taking advantage of them. Instead, it has pushed thousands of these workers into the unemployment line. 

Here’s why:

What do Democratic Socialists like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez want America to look like? They say they want America to emulate Scandinavian countries like Denmark and Sweden. But do their proposed policies reflect that? Or do they point down a darker path? Debbie D’Souza, a native Venezuelan and political commentator, investigates.

Script:

Venezuela—where I was born and still have family—bad. 

Cuba—bad.

Zimbabwe—bad. 

Soviet Union—bad. 

China under Mao—bad. 

Sweden, Denmark, Norway—good. 

This is the socialist report card as it currently stands.

Never mind that Venezuela, Cuba, Zimbabwe, the Soviet Union, Mao’s China were once good. Once they go bad, they stay bad and are quickly forgotten, lost down the memory hole.

But those Nordic paradises? They never let you down.

Whenever Bernie, the “Squad”, and the growing horde of Democratic Socialists ever get cornered, there’s always “like Denmark” to come to the rescue.

“No, no, we don’t want anything like what’s going on in Venezuela. Denmark is what we have in mind.”

Except they don’t.

Script:

Is there a problem with universal mail-in balloting? 

Sounds simple enough: You fill out a ballot, stick it in the mail; somebody counts it on Election Day. In fact, we already do that with absentee ballots, right? So why would universal mail-in balloting be any different? 

Well, the biggest difference is that with absentee ballots, the voter specifically asks for a ballot. 

With universal mail-in balloting, ballots are mailed out en masse. Millions of people who would normally go to the polls vote by mail instead.

No national election has ever been conducted this way. And there are very good reasons to be concerned that one ever should. 

Reason #1:

Bureaucratic incompetence. 

I don't think I have to sell you on the idea that when the government bureaucracy takes on a big new project with little preparation, the results aren..
