New Denver City Council Member:
I Will Usher In Communism ‘By Any Means Necessary’

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 6/17/2019 10:50:21 AM

Newly elected far-left Denver City Council member Candi CdeBaca has stated that she is "excited to usher" in communism "by any means necessary." CdeBaca, who won in an upset runoff election earlier this month, said in late March during a candidate forum for City Council District 9: I don’t believe our current economic system actually works. Um, capitalism by design is extractive and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system, something has to be exploited, that’s land, labor or resources And I think that we’re in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we have to move into something new.

The American citizen gets the government it deserves by voting in people that are determined to destroy the great country that we have built.

Honey, Cuba isn't that far away. Just hop a plane and enjoy all that it has to offer. The stupidity of some people still amazes me. While she is enjoying her flight to Cuba there are tens of thousands of books written on the failure of communism. Might as well spend that flight time educating herself.

FTA: ''...And I think that we’re in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we have to move into something new.'' Well Comrad, perhaps you can point out three or four successful, prosperous and happy communist countries? I won't hold my breath. Can't imagine the stupidity of her voters. College educated, no doubt.

Could we at last abolish the use of "Witch Hunt" and "McCarthyism" for "a campaign or practice that endorses the use of unfair allegations and investigations."? There were witches in 17th Century America and they remain today, demanding their rights. There have been and remain, communists in the highest levels of Government and Industry since mid-nineteenth Century. Using those terms for what's being done to President Trump belittles the seriousness of the offense.

Another example of the American people of 2019 having a greater tolerance for evil than violence. Of course, once the communists gain real power, the violence is brought to the people, whether they tolerate it or not. Where and when has it ever been otherwise? Russia and China both lost tens of millions of their own people after the communists gained control.

If not for the fawning posture of the mainstream media for Leftist ideology I wouldn't lose a moment's peace over this. But the enemedia have been the primary co-vector for the commie conquest of this country (along with the public school system and the environmental movement) since the Sixties. Getting cornered by Trump has emboldened them through desperation. I sense a decisive conflict is in store before this thing ends.

IF people were basically good, then communism would work wonderfully well. Liberals believe that people ARE basically good despite the entirety of human history that clearly demonstrates that people are indeed fallen and self serving. Just look at what happens in the heart of liberal cities when the power goes out, or when some natural disaster strikes. Sure, some people will do the right thing, but as a whole it descends into chaos. And that is why no communist country has ever succeeded. Only capitalism has harnessed the power of selfishness and turned it into something that is good for all who participate in it. There is a reason why Soviet farmland was about 25% as productive as U.S. farmland in the 70's and 80's. No Soviet farmer had anything to gain from greater crop yield. Our farmers could take greater yields to the bank.

Close to 200 wealthy supporters of Biden drank wine and took in the Central Park view from investment billionaire Jim Chanos’s three-story, 7,800 sq. ft. home, reported The Washington Examiner. They were apparently unfazed by liberal protesters gathered outside, chanting about global warming and the need to ban fracking. “You are putting me in a position to be able to compete nationally,” Biden told his supporters, later boasting that he has raised $20 million in just two months.

Three reasons Trump-Russia hasn't turned into Watergate 18 replies

Why haven't efforts to impeach President Trump gained Watergate-style momentum? The lack of energy has created a sense of bafflement and disappointment among some of the president's most determined adversaries. But there are some simple reasons for it. Here are three: 1.) The facts are different. In Watergate, the underlying crime was a break-in at Democratic National Committee headquarters, perpetrated by burglars paid by President Richard Nixon's reelection campaign. The scandal proceeded from there. In Trump-Russia, the underlying crime was the hacking of the DNC's and John Podesta's emails — a crime committed by Russians in Russia.

In April 1944, two Slovakian Jews named Alfred Weczler and Rudolf Vrba escaped from Auschwitz, and provided one of the first eyewitness accounts of the horrors of the European concentration camps. Both men had been rounded up with a group of their countrymen and sent to the Birkenau section of the camp in the spring of 1941, where they were immediately put to work as slave labor. This was before the German regime had properly streamlined and industrialized efforts to destroy European Jewry. In the early days of the camp, any man
