Rigged: Soros-Connected Company Provides Voting Machines in 15 States and D.C.

By Rick Pearcey • October 19, 2016, 02:58 PM

David Krayden reports at the Daily Caller:

Smartmatic, a U.K.-based voting technology company with deep ties to George Soros, has control over voting machines in 16 states including battleground zones like Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Other jurisdictions affected are California, District of Columbia [see note below], Illinois, Louisiana, Missouri, New Jersey, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin.

Nothing to see here. Just the minor observation that, if extremist billionaire George Soros is counting the votes, America is over.

Note: The District of Columibia is a ferderal district, not a state.

Debunked! The Myth of Nordic Socialist Utopia Crumbles

By Rick Pearcey • August 28, 2016, 10:43 AM

"The Nordic countries have a culture of success that gives them prosperity, that gives them social success," says Swedish economist Dr. Nima Sanandaji, who is the author of the just published Debunking Utopia: Exposing the Myth of Nordic Socialism. "This culture of success predates the welfare state."

Whole Foods CEO: Socialism "Never Has Worked" and "Never Will"

By Rick Pearcey • August 16, 2016, 10:58 AM

Bradford Richardson reports at the WTimes:

The CEO of Whole Foods Market says socialism is a fundamentally flawed economic theory that never has worked and never will.

John Mackey, who debated Marxist economist John Roemer at FreedomFest in Las Vegas last week, said state-controlled economies simply don't comport with human nature.

"I want to make the world a better place. But you have to do that in a sort of pragmatic fashion, not a utopian transformation," Mr. Mackey told Opportunity Lives after the debate.

Or you can put it like this: Your economic theory about reality has got to fit the facts on the ground if it is ever to get off the ground and help "make the world a better place."

Otherwise, empirical facts falsify your theory, and no amount of "good intentions," government funding, or magical thinking is going to turn a falsified economic theory that does not work in the real world into a verified economic theory that does work in the real world.

"There's not going to be a new human being that's going to pop up [so] that human nature ceases to exist, and that's been the myth of the socialistic man, that they can change human nature," Mackey is quoted as saying.

Also, according to the WTimes, the Whole Foods CEO disagrees with the professor's belief that socialism could work but the problem is that it "just hasn’t been done right."

  "He's an economics professor at Yale who believes that he knows the best thing for society: 80 percent tax rates, entrepreneurs will work hard and still be creative for the goodness of their heart, and sins don't matter," Mackey said in critique of Roemer's position, according to the Times

In fact, "socialism has failed miserably every place it has been tried," Mackey countered.

Oh, well maybe "it just hasn’t been done right," Mackey suggested, describing an oft-used socialist-favoring reply.

Why hasn't it been done right as of yet? "Because the right people aren’t running it yet. If John Roemer and his gang were running, it would be good," Mackey said, according to the Times.

It is important, however, to understand that not even the "right people" (who are never around, it seems) can transmogrify that which is false into that which is true. If socialism is false, no amount of "right people" and no amount of government taxing and spending can change falsified socialism into something true to reality.

Magical thinking about the economic facts of life remains magical thinking about the economic facts of life no matter who does the thinking. And then imposing that fantasy, that illusion, that comforting but false ideology, upon the lives of real people does great harm and results in great evil, much pain and suffering and bloodshed. All in the pursuit of an empty opiate called socialism.

Socialism "sounds good in theory . . .  but in reality never works," Richardson quotes Mackey as saying.

Whole Foods is fortunate to have a CEO who rejects the way of a cult, who instead embraces a liberating economic theory that produces real fruit in the real world.

It is true: "Man shall not live on bread alone," and life is more than bread. The problem for socialism is that it can't even get you the bread.

Socialist Bernie Sanders Spends $600,000 on Another Home. His 3rd. For Summer Vacations

By Rick Pearcey • August 10, 2016, 09:32 AM

Thomas Lifson writes at American Thinker:

The great thing about being an avowed socialist is that you get to posture as a self-righteous man of the people without foregoing the benefits of wealth.

Take the case of Bernie Sanders, whose self-reported net worth was $528,014, yet who just spent a reported $600,000 on a summer "vacation home" with 500 feet of lake frontage on gorgeous Lake Champlain.

Socialism Always Kills: Forced Labor in Venezuela

By Rick Pearcey • August 4, 2016, 10:42 AM

In a video on this page, Matt Kibbe explores how "socialism always kills."

Here is a transcript of Kibbe's remarks:

People in Venezuela who have never spent a day of their life on a farm may soon be forced by the government to work the farmlands.

President Nicolás Madura has decreed that anybody could be drafted for up to 60 days to help increase aggregate food output.

Amnesty International says that this is just forced labor by some other words, but aren't we really talking about slavery here?

This is a classic socialist strategy.

As things start to unwind, governments start to enforce, by dictate, at the point of a gun, forced labor.

History repeats itself.

The same strategy was used by Fidel Castro to force his people to work the sugar fields.

It happened under the Khmer Rouge as Pol Pot insisted that production quotas were not met because farmers were being disloyal to the socialist dream.

Of course it happened in China, where Mao succeeded in starving some 45 million people by trying to manage, by trying to force, by trying to enslave his people.

Kibbe concludes: "Socialism always kills."

Victory Now: No Room for Compromise With Inhumane, Anti-U.S. Socialism of Democrats

By Rick Pearcey • February 8, 2016, 11:05 AM

Steve McCann writes at American Thinker:

In the United States of 2016 the occupant of the White House is someone steeped in and aggressively implementing statist ideology. And one of the two major political parties has as its only candidates for the presidency a dedicated lifelong socialist in Bernie Sanders and a newly declared socialist in Hillary Clinton.

In recent polls nearly 59% of Democrats say they would vote for a socialist candidate as well as nearly 50% of independents and even more frightening nearly 70% of those between the ages of 18 and 29 in the country claim they would vote for a socialist. . . .

"Within the United States, because of the unrelenting socialist indoctrination of the people and the stealth takeover of the Democratic Party by the radical Left, plus the unwillingness of the only viable opposition -- the Republican Party -- to understand that one cannot compromise with those whose sole objective is the seizure of political power, this process is well on its way and the culmination, if not stopped now, will be the end of this nation as a bastion of freedom and opportunity," McCann explains.

"Yet the mindset of the Republican Party is still that of compromise and getting along with the opposition. Virtually all of the candidates for the Republican presidential nomination tout their ability to make deals and get along with their political adversaries. It is that mindset that has eventuated in the debacle the nation now finds itself in," McCann continues.

McCann concludes: "There can no longer be any consideration of compromise with the now unabashed socialist Democratic Party. They must be defeated and their gains rolled back. This election is the last opportunity to do so before it is too late, as the devastating polling statistics so frighteningly confirm and which the Republican Party chooses to ignore."

Rand Paul on Socialism: "Ultimately . . . They Exterminate You"

By Rick Pearcey • October 27, 2015, 02:45 PM

Melanie Hunter reports at CNSNews.com:

In an interview on 'The Glenn Beck Program' on Monday, GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) called socialism 'the most anti-choice economic system,' where ultimately if you don't listen, 'they exterminate you.'

"It's the most anti-choice economic system. If you don't listen, they fine you. If you don't pay the fine, they imprison you.

"If you will not listen, ultimately what has happened in history -- and people get mad when I say this -- but they exterminate you, and that's what happened under Stalin," said Paul.

Socialists Cause Famine in "Breadbasket" of Africa

By Rick Pearcey • August 26, 2015, 09:04 AM

Andre Walker writes: 

Around 1.5m people are facing severe shortages of food this year in Zimbabwe, the country once known as the "breadbasket of Africa." The World Food Programme (WFP) announced the shortages, blaming a fall in maize production, according to the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Officially the reason for the fall in maize production is a drought that has affected a number of countries in the region. But the reality is far more sinister: Zimbabwe is in the grip of a nasty Socialist dictatorship that is as incompetent as it is corrupt.
