    Judge Jeanine Pirro: Think socialism can never happen here? Just look at the left and the last 10 days



    By Judge Jeanine Pirro | Fox News


    Judge Jeanine: The gap between the left and right has never been wider

    Amazingly, the gap continues to widen.

    We are reaching a turning point that will forever determine our future -- how we live our lives and how our children will live theirs. The gap between the ever-widening left and right has never been wider, and yet amazingly it continues to widen.

    Every time we turn on a TV, open a laptop or listen to the radio, another bizarre, offbeat, outlandish idea brings us closer to socialism and the destruction of capitalism. And it is being pushed by the left.

    So you have a decision to make. Do you want to live in a country where no matter how hard you work, no matter what you do or how much you succeed, you simply won't improve your lot?

    Do you want to benefit from your own success or would you prefer to let the government take over and use your benefit to pay everyone else?

    In the last few weeks, the left has removed its moderate mask to show its true socialist colors as they cheer laws that allow for the killing of babies already born and born alive, giving the mother the right of a thumbs up or thumbs down like an emperor in the Roman Coliseum. And almost every one of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates supports the New Green Deal proposed by a freshman congresswoman so knowledgeable about Washington that she thinks she came here to sign bills! And her New Green Deal will literally pull planes out of the sky.

    No issue, I guess, since the left is happy with the influx coming in through our southern border. No air travel required for them.

    This Green New Deal is supported by Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, by Senators Sanders, Gillibrand and Warren and requires that every building in America be rebuilt for environmental reasons and that high-speed rail be developed so that air travel becomes unnecessary.
    The New Green Deal foresees Medicare for all and considers a deficit not that big of a deal, because, according to Ocasio-Cortez, we can just print more money.

    You know what? You should have left your Monopoly game home when you came to Washington, Ms Ocasio-Cortez.

    But my favorite part of the New Green Deal is where they seek a net zero greenhouse gas in 10 years.

    So you may ask why “net zero” as opposed to zero? The reason is that they are not sure they will be able to get rid of bovine flatulence. I can't believe I just said that -- aka, cows farting.

    These emissions from cows are of concern to the left because these bovine emissions have an environmental impact and the methane gas produced by the bovine flatulence contributes to the greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming.

    Need I say more?!

    And their hypocrisy. It knows no bounds as they hang on to dear life -- political life, albeit -- in the State of Virginia where the governor and the attorney general dressed in blackface and the governor comes out and says that he is now going to explore the issue of white privilege and pursue an agenda of racial reconciliation. -- Talk about trying to deflect an issue from yourself to everyone else. And he even says it was a terrible week for Virginia. --No, governor, it was a terrible week for YOU!

    And now, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax is accused of forcible sexual assault and forcible rape. Although the date of one attack was 16 years ago and the other 15 years ago, the victims each have very specific recollections. One has classmates who corroborate her immediate outcry that Fairfax raped her. One victim remembers the date, the time, the place, and telling her classmates.

    One involves a doctor who says that she was forced to perform oral sex on Lt. Gov. Fairfax, and although she did not bring it up until years later, it's a far cry from the demands of the left that Brett Kavanaugh remove himself as a candidate for the Supreme Court for something that allegedly happened more than 35 years ago with an alleged victim who didn't remember where it happened, when it happened, and who never reported it to anyone. Fairfax's victim has the date, place, time.

    So what I want to know is, where are the Democratic senators who turned the Constitution on its head for Kavanaugh saying that all women need to be believed?

    Now where are all the women in their pink hats? Where are the women who suffered sexual assault storming the doors of the Capitol during the Kavanaugh hearings?

    Where are those women, who refused to allow the elevator door to close in the Senate as they had a fit and sought to blame Brett Kavanaugh for their own distress?

    I guess, if the accused is a Democrat, the rules don't matter. And so it seems the Democrats don't care if someone is in blackface, happens to be a Democrat or if someone accused of sexual assault happens to be a Democrat, or if a baby is murdered after it is born.

    This is a group of people that actually sits on their hands when the president of the United States says he wants to stop human trafficking.

    A group that sits on their hands when the president says he wants to end childhood cancer.

    And they sit on their hands when he says he wants to have a plan to eradicate AIDS.

    Who are these people? They are people who are more hateful of one man, our president, that it matters not that he wants to protect babies or stop human trafficking or eradicate AIDS.

    I'll tell you who they are. They are people who don't care about us. They only care about power and making sure that they keep it.

    Socialism has been happening here for years.
    I just read (somewhere) the other day that the government controls something like 50% of the economy

    I just lost my primary care doctor. He is the best I have ever had. Between my wife and myself, this makes 5 docs that have "retired" since Obamacare began. I have known this guy personally for 30 years. He told me that a mom and pop medical practice like his simply cannot survive the highly regulated bureaucratic mess that has evolved. My wife's PA said it all. The medical factory she works for has mandated that she see 60% more patients per day than before O'care. much of their time is spent looking into a laptop asking government mandated questions that have no bearing on the purpose of the visit.

    At least twice a year I get asked the question, "Do you feel safe in your own home?" Eye roll and a smartass answer from me!

    Socialism HAPPENED, here, the moment the people surrendered their absolute right to property in exchange for a tribute tax to fund the State’s public indoctrination program, etc.

    You’re all over a hundred years late.

    You live and breathe pure socialism, at best, every day of your lives.

    Not sure anyone has absolute right to God's property, Samuel. But I hear your point. Government schools funded by property taxes teaching socialistic ideas..... But, may I ask a question? In a capitalistic system, if that is what you are proposing instead of "pure socialism", what fair tax system do you propose? Thanks. Or, do you think no government would be necessary?

    God gave each man the right to dominion over his portion of the earth.
    The US government, no less, acknowledged and made provision for that and related (property) rights, in 1838.
    Those laws and contracts are still on the books, but the 14th amendment invitation and subsequent invitations have lured the people away from their God-given rights and into a status privileged and coddled, but certainly not free.

    If people accepted responsibility, and made provision for their own, the nation could do very well on less than 5% of the “government” we have today.

    Funding that would be simple, as per constitutional provisions long forgotten.

    Just read the 14th and am not as astute as you, Samuel. 5 sections to it. Not sure I'm gettin your meaning about invitations.

    Amen to that!

    The 14th was an invitation for all free Americans to join the recently “liberated” slaves in becoming card carrying members of the US federal government, with all the privileges, immunities and restrictions that implies.....but without their original, God-given rights.
    The federal reserve and its fiat currency were another invitation......away from the lawful purchasing power of constitutionally mandated gold and silver.
    FDR’s new deal was another invitation.....
    Social Security and the birth certificate were others.

    Participation in any of the above is not mandatory......but once you consent, the sticky glue of servitude is applied.

    So, unconsenting is the answer?

    Socialism is based on theft. Capitalism and property rights seem to be based on the Law of Liberty.

    In the US, socialism is based on the cooperation of the individual, so yes, “unconsenting” is the answer.

    The original republic is still here, but nearly uninhabited for the fact that almost the entire population has given itself over to the corporate/socialist side..... i.e., the “democracy within a republic” congressionally described early last century.
