BBC to Ban Reporters Use of ‘Terror Attack’ to Describe ‘Terror Attacks’

In another example of how the world has gone nuts the BBC is about to ban reporters use of the words “terror attack” to describe…terror attacks.

Apparently the new policy will only allow reporters to describe the time, place and what happened without referring it to a terrorist attack, as the Daily Mail reports:

The controversial edict means that the BBC will no longer use the phrase ‘terror attack’ to describe the massacres at London Bridge or Manchester Arena, as the corporation did when the atrocities occurred.

Reporters would describe them as the London Bridge van attack or the Manchester Arena bomb attack instead.

But yesterday, MPs and experts accused the broadcaster of ‘failing in its public service duty’.

David Green, a former Home Office adviser and chief executive of the think tank Civitas, said: ‘If they don’t want to use that [the word terror] then they’re failing in their public service duty which is to be clear and accurate.

This has got to be one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard of, and that says a lot.

How can you inform the public, if you fail to inform the public of exactly what happened?

This is yet another example of how political correctness can endanger or cost innocent lives. How can people react properly if they are missing a key piece of the story?

Former Home Office adviser Mr. David Green continues:

‘I think there is a common usage, which has some recognition in law, which if you use attempted killing or injury to a political objective, then that’s terrorism.

‘It would be misleading not to say that these are terrorist episodes if they are attempts to advance a political or ideological cause through violence.

‘The Christchurch one [in New Zealand] was someone a bit wacky but he was trying to make a political point, and all the Islamist episodes are aimed at a political outcome.’

That is exactly right. If an attack has a political objective then that’s terrorism and it should be labeled and called by the media as such.

Anything less is a dereliction of duty by the news media.

Of course we’ve all grown accustomed to the news media putting it’s preferred political narrative over actually reporting the news.

It begins: Canada now ARRESTING Christian pastors and prosecuting them for teaching the Bible… the war on Christianity escalates

If you think the Leftist assault on freedom of speech and the First Amendment here in the United States is bad, consider the much worse situation transpiring in Canada, where a Christian pastor was recently arrested and charged with “disturbing the peace” simply for preaching the Word of God on a street corner.

According to reports, a group of violent protesters had approached and started to harass Pastor David Lynn when police arrived on the scene and proceeded to handcuff him, rather than the protesters, before taking him away in a squad car.

The violent mob that remained, which openly identified as LGBT, was seen and heard screaming, hollering, and cheering as Lynn was detained and removed from the premises by local law enforcement. Video footage of the incident that was captured by one of the police officers is available below, as well as on YouTube.

“It’s unfortunate that I am subject to this kind of discrimination and bullying and marginalization simply for saying God loves you, there is hope for you, I accept you and tolerate you,” Lynn said in a statement following his arrest.

“I shouldn’t be in this position. I didn’t do anything illegal,” he added.

If you’re a Christian, the Cult of LGBTQP now demands that you stay in the closet about your faith or else go to jail

Since nothing that Lynn was preaching about had anything specifically to do with LGBTQP, the only logical conclusion is that the angry LGBTQP mob that approached him acted purely out of anti-Christian hatred.

These Christphobes “had an event waiting for me,” Lynn told the media following the incident, adding that this LGBTQP mob clearly “had some form of hatred against me,” and wanted him to “stay in the closet” concerning his Christian identity.

Even though Lynn did absolutely nothing wrong, he’s reportedly now banned from being anywhere near the areas of Bloor Street, Yonge Street, Carlton Street, and Jarvis Street in the Church-Wellesley Village area of Toronto, Canada, as well as anywhere near the LGBTQP Pride march.

“I didn’t know this was the start of the pride month,” Lynn is quoted as saying. “I didn’t say anything specific to the LGBTQ community. It’s all on live stream.”

So, in essence, it’s now a crime to be an out-of-the-closet Christian in Canada, where the Cult of LGBTQP now has free reign to persecute Christians they don’t like as “criminals.” Pretty much anything that upsets the LGBTQP mafia, in other words, is now a prosecutable “crime” in Canada.
Cult of LGBTQP pushing for more legislation to muzzle free speech rights of Christians and others they hate

Once again, it’s abundantly clear that the LGBTQP crybullies who are constantly screaming about “tolerance” and “love” are actually the ones who are full of intolerance and hatred towards Christians – exposing their endless virtue signaling as absolute bulls***.

The most hateful, intolerant, and deranged members of society, in other words, are the prideful perverts who march in LGBTQP parades pretending to be the victims of hate when they’re actually the perpetrators.

Case-in-point is the LGBTQP push for the passage of the “Prohibiting Hate-Promoting Demonstrations at Queen’s Park Act, 2019” in Canada, which would make it illegal for Christians to engage in free speech anywhere in or near this heavily-trafficked park.

“Christians are now the most persecuted faith on the planet, mostly because of how they are treated by radical Muslims in the third-world,” writes Shane Trejo for Big League Politics.

“But the third-world is coming to the West, and Christians are going to suffer mightily as a result,” he adds – as will members of the Cult of LGBTQP, which are routinely persecuted and killed in Muslim-dominated countries.

When Pastors Become the Instrument of Your Oppression-The Clergy Response Team, FEMA Camps and Bioterrorism

Christians are under attack like never before in this country. Local government is getting involved and the abuse of preachers has even spread to Canada. At the forefront of this abuse of the Christian religion are the remnants of the Deep State that control various agencies like the Department of Homeland Security. At the forefront of the coming oppression will be the Clergy Response Team. I first made note of their formation in 2009, under the early days of the Obama regime. The group is still active and reports that Jeff Sessions was a participant when he served as Attorney General.
Your Pastor and 30 Pieces of Silver

We all know the story about how Judas betrayed Jesus for a relatively small amount of money. Today, almost all churches place money over spreading the true word of God. If you doubt the veracity of this statement then ask yourself when was the last time that your pastor spoke to you about the evils of abortion, Planned Parenthood selling aborted fetus body parts for profit, our government’s wars of occupation for corporate profit and the unwarranted attacks upon Christianity by various levels of government?

If your pastor isn’t speaking to you about the evils of these and other contemporary issues in American society, presented Godless entity whose primary purpose is to extract then your church has a significant financial motivation to not truthfully interpret the true message of the Bible. The tax-exempt status of being a 501(c)(3) organization is the other cornerstone of this shift away from allegiance to God and towards worshiping our new Savior, the federal government. A 501(C)(3) church was formerly prohibited from being politically active even when the message was inline with church doctrine.

Animal trainers will tell you that when they chain an animal to a tree (eg elephant), for the purposes of training, they can later remove the chains and the animal will still act like they are still chained. This is called learned helplessness. Today, we still find the same behaviors 21/2 years following Trump’s relaxation of the draconian restrictions of being a tax-exempt church. Further, there is also no guarantee that the same freedom will be in place after the 2020 Presidential election.

Unless I missed the fact that God personally rewrote sections of the Bible, your pastor’s failure to stand up to the liberalism of the New World Order should have tipped you off that something was terribly wrong with your church. If the government continues to expand its infanticide policies by extending the murder of babies to include post-delivery abortion, and the church remains silent. If this is the case in your church, it is time to find a new church because it is likely that your pastor is compromised and serves government over God.
FEMA Camps

I recently authored an article on the fact that Ebola is poised to enter the country in a big way through illegal immigration stemming from transported Africans to America’s southern border. Additionally, I have previously reported that a trusted DHS source told me that they are aware that FEMA camps are being constructed outside of five Texas cities. These two events are related. And also related is an interview with someone who was trained to be a part of the government’s Clergy Response Team.

Previously, I interviewed Pastor Walter Mansfield, who emphasized that when martial law is enacted, the enforcement would be immediate. In other words, family members will be separated from each other and part of the training that the clergy received was how to comfort separated family members. Pastor Mansfield emphasized that the FEMA/DHS drills were predicated on bioterrorism. This is exactly what a FEMA source told me before he and his family left Phoenix and relocated to remote area to avoid what he knew was coming. The pastors were trained to go to homes were people refused to be relocated by the authorities and their immediate job was to convince the reluctant to willingly go to the relocation camps. Ostensibly, this was to be done in lieu of sending in the SWAT teams. I asked Mansfield if FEMA camps were real and he stated that much of the clergy training focused around this scenario of pastors operating within the forced relocation centers. The main goal of a pastor assigned to a FEMA Camp was to bring order and encourage compliance with DHS requests, hence, the emphasis on Romans 13. The pastors were forced to sign non-disclosure. Interesting, the pastors were told not to quote Scripture. The DHS document which was prepared for the pastors clearly stated that Scripture had been used to “oppress” people in the past and the presenters strongly discouraged the its use. Please see the following excerpt from one of the DHS training manuals: Healing Scripture and Prayer In the Pastoral Crisis Intervention

“During a time of crisis people do go through a “crisis of faith.” Sometime quick mention of God and scripture may not be helpful. As we all know the Scripture has been used to oppress, dominate and at the same time used for healing and reconciliation- renewing of relationship with God and people. If the pastor senses it is appropriate to use the scripture and prayer, it must carefully be done for healing of victims not to uphold pastoral authority.” (Page 14) In other words, all legitimate pastoral authority was abrogated by the pastors who participated in the roundup of American citizens. Also on page 14 of the same training document, pastors were admonished to avoid “Unhealthy God talk….” Specifically pastors are ordered to avoid using references to God when helping people cope with the loss of a loved one: “4. God must have needed him/her more than you.” “5. God never gives more than we can handle.“

Mansfield emphasized that when martial law is enacted, the enforcement would be immediate. In other words, family members will be separated from each other and part of the training that the clergy received was how to comfort separated family members. Pastor Mansfield emphasized that the FEMA/DHS drills were predicated on bioterrorism. This is exactly what my relocated FEMA source told me before he and his family left. The pastors were trained to go to homes were people refused to be relocated by the authorities and their immediate job was to convince the reluctant to willingly go to the relocation camps. Ostensibly, this was to be done in lieu of sending in the SWAT teams. I asked Mansfield if FEMA camps were real and he stated that much of the clergy training focused around this scenario of pastors operating within the forced relocation centers. The main goal of a pastor assigned to a FEMA was to bring order and encourage compliance with DHS requests, hence, the emphasis on Romans 13. The pastors were forced to sign non-disclosure. Interesting, the pastors were told not to quote Scripture. The DHS document which was prepared for the pastors clearly stated that Scripture had been used to “oppress” people in the past and the presenters

Pastor Mansfield also revealed that pastors will be issued badges under the Clergy Response Team program. Any pastor not displaying the badge, indicating that they have been trained under these guidelines, will not be permitted into the established and designated “DHS safety zones”. This reminds me of the banishment of religious figures from Plymouth Colony who, in good conscience, refused to go along with some of the extremism of that day. Along these lines, the Clergy Response Team is also a “Kool-Aid drinking program”. Pastors are absolutely forbidden to publicly to speak about any aspect of the program. If you were to ask your pastor if they are a FEMA trained pastor, they will not likely tell you. Disturbingly, Pastor Mansfield reiterated several times that the number one job of these pastors is to calm down people and encourage their compliance within the people’s new surroundings. Pastor Mansfield also stated that pastors will be utilized as informants. This violates the legal privilege of confidentiality between pastor and church-goer, that is currently recognized by law. All church-goers can no longer trust the sanctity of personal confessions and revelations made to pastors, priests or rabbis’. This one illegal act by DHS completely undermines the Christian Church in America!

American Christians will be the most hunted in the near future. Everywhere, and at every level of our society, we are seeing discrimination against Christians. There are legislative bills no assigned to silence the voices of Christians with regard to behavior that is antithetical to the principles of Christianity as evidenced by the content in the following video.

Conclusion

This is the time where the legends of FEMA camps, bioterrorism, extreme political persecution and the Clergy Response Team comes together to form America’s biggest nightmare in her history.

At one time in American history, churches were viewed as sanctuaries for the downtrodden. That is not the case any longer for most churches and their pastors. Most of the medium to large size churches are completely compromised and are serving as virtual agents of the government. Pastor Mansfield told me that as many as 28,000 pastors have been recruited by the Clergy Response Team. Other estimates place this number as high as a 100,000 pastors have forsaken their duty God and have sold out to the dark side in order to save a little bit of tax money. If what I am being told is correct and the Pope is declaring a New World Order by September 15, 2019 and the global currency reset will follow in a month and your money will be devalued by 90%, what will you do? Please allow me to suggest that if these people are correct in their projections, you have one month to obtain what you need to survive. Secondly, you should scrutinize your place of worship and leave if they are not preaching the unadulterated word of God. Form home Bible study groups, take back the salvation of your soul. This life is temporary, Hell is forever! Is your church going to turn into a FEMA camp? For most of us, it already has and the prisoner is your soul. DHS may not build bars around your church and confine your body, but the move on your soul has already been made. Exercise the free will to say no to this illegitimate authority.

Does Ilhan Omar Hold Congressional Office ILLEGALLY? Citizenship in Question!

Proof seems to have surfaced indicating an outspoken – and trouble-making – member of the US House of Representatives holds office illegally and may not be a US Citizen!

Representative Ilhan Omar’s U.S. citizenship has just become problematic.

Interviews and the public record provide that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar claims to have obtained U.S. citizenship in the year 2000 as a 17-year-old, a minor.

In every instance, where we find Ilhan having been interviewed by reputable news outlets, her age is reported to have been 17 in 2000.

For example, in an interview with the New York Times, reported that “she became a citizen in 2000, when she was 17.”[4] Again, the TwinCities Pioneer Press stated that in “2000: At age 17, Omar becomes a U.S. citizen. She has already become interested in local politics, serving as a translator for Somalis at precinct caucuses.”[5]
Date of Birth Clarity

Ilhan Omar’s Minnesota legislative page has shown her date of birth to be Oct 4, 1981, since her election to the state legislature in 2016.

Ilhan’s Oct 4, 1981, date of birth clearly corroborates that she was not 17 years old in 2000 when she claims to have obtained citizenship as a minor, but rather 18 turning 19. Thus, she seems have have been an actual adult, but appears to some people to have applied fully two years beyond what would be allowed for naturalization through her father.

Based on interviews and credible publications, it appears that Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar never obtained U.S. citizenship, and therefore, does not meet the constitutional qualification to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the age of twenty-five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States…” –U.S. Constitution, Article I, section 2, clause 2

After 5 years of permanent residency within the U.S. adult refugees may apply for U.S. citizenship status through a process called naturalization. Naturalization includes English proficiency, a U.S. history and civics exam, and swearing an ‘Oath of Allegiance’ to the United States. [2]

There are three paths a foreign-born child may obtain U.S. citizenship through their parents:[3]

· Acquisition of citizenship

· Derivation of citizenship

· Application for citizenship under Section 322 of the Immigration and Naturalization Act

Acquisition of citizenship for Ilhan Omar would not apply because one or both parents must have been U.S. citizens at the time of her birth in Somalia.

Citizenship by derivation requires that foreign-born children who turned 18 years old on or after February 27, 2001, are eligible to gain citizenship through their parents. Ilhan Omar’s widely published birth date of October 4, 1981 means she turned 18 in 1999 and 19 in 2000, and therefore, was ineligible to gain citizenship by derivation.

And finally, Certificate of Citizenship under I.N.A. Section 322 would require Ilhan Omar’s father having already obtained U.S. citizenship before she turned 18 years of age. But given the Omar family arrived in the U.S. in 1995, and adult refugees having a five-year waiting period, means Ilhan’s father could not have applied for naturalization until the year 2000—when Ilhan was an adult. Ilhan Omar could not have gained citizenship through her father under I.N.A. Section 322.

Ilhan Omar’s Minnesota legislative page has shown her date of birth to be Oct 4, 1981, since her election to the state legislature in 2016.

Ilhan’s Oct 4, 1981, date of birth clearly corroborates that she was not 17 years old in 2000, but rather 18 turning 19. Fully two years beyond what would be allowed for naturalization through her father.

According to a public data request, Ilhan Omar’s congressional staff contacted the Minnesota Legislative Reference Library on May 17th requesting to change the congresswoman’s date of birth from October 4, 1981 to 1982. [6]

Interestingly, the request was made just two days after a video was published on social media pointing out that Ilhan was not 17 years old in 2000.

Oops!

The Minnesota Legislative Reference Library cooperated with Omar’s congressional staff’s request to change her date of birth by making the change without requiring any documentation—no birth certificate and no record of naturalization.

The legislative reference library responded as follows:

“Hello *,

The Legislative Reference Library’s biographical record for Rep. Ilhan Omar’s term in the Minnesota Legislature has the birth date for Rep. Omar as October 4, 1982. 1982 is her correct birth year.

On May 17, 2019, Library staff were informed by Rep. Omar’s congressional staff that her birth year was incorrect and requested that we change it to 1982. Rep. Omar’s congressional staff are working with Wikipedia and with the Biographical Directory of the United States Congress and other sources to correct her birth year on those sites. As of today, the birth year has not been corrected on the two sites I mentioned.

I contacted her congressional office this morning to verify that we do have the birth year correct. They confirmed that 1982 is the correct year.

Sincerely, Elizabeth Lincoln

One has to wonder why the Somali born congresswoman never made any effort to correct the public record before May 17th 2019, because this type of discrepancy is not inconsequential.

As of this writing, the Biographical Directory of the United States Congress [7] also provides the Congresswoman’s date of birth to be October 4, 1981. Is the Congressional record a slip up as well?
No ‘Oath of Allegiance’ to the U.S.

Bear in mind that voter fraud is an ongoing concern in the state of Minnesota. Without a clearly defined step ensuring that the growing community of refugees are, in fact, gaining U.S. citizenship before participating in elections most certainly negatively impacts voter integrity.

It wouldn’t be a far leap to imagine that the Minnesota Secretary of State did not verify citizenship nor voter eligibility for a foreign-born legislative candidate.

Additionally, there currently exists no record or interview by Omar stating she applied for U.S. citizenship as an adult, passing required exams, and having taken the ‘Oath of Allegiance’ to the United States of America. (Where are the exuberant photos celebrating such an occasion?)
Ilhan Omar’s Age

Even if Ilhan Omar successfully changes her date of birth on a handful of public sources, such as the Minnesota legislative page, Omar’s widely published age of 37 also poses a problem.

Multiple sources and interviews establish Ilhan Omar’s age to be 37 years old as she gained a seat in the U.S. Congress this year. Which, by the way, after a little math… also makes Ilhan’s date of birth to be 1981.

How will Ilhan’s congressional staff correct the interviews and multitude of credible sources consistently referencing her age to be 37 years old as she took office in the U.S. House of Representatives including the Biographical Directory of the United States Congress?[8]

A March 2019, BBC article, “The 37-year-old mother of three is the first Somali-American, first African-born American…”[9]

Did a May 2019, Federalist publication also get the congresswoman’s age wrong as well? “Omar is a 37-year-old educated woman who was elected to the U.S. Congress, not a middle schooler playacting in the Model U.N.”[10]

Or the May 2019, Huff Post? “The newly elected 37-year-old had returned to her home district to speak to and hear from community leaders and constituents.”[11]
Reasonable Doubt

As both, Ilhan Omar’s date of birth and age, cause reasonable doubt to her U.S. citizenship she must provide her naturalization records. ‘We the People’ have a right to constitutional clarification.

It is of utmost importance that Congresswoman Omar provide authenticated documentation of naturalization records leaving no doubt that she actually meets all constitutional qualifications to sit in the U.S. House of Representatives.

However, there is a legal snag. Ilhan Omar’s U.S. citizenship cannot be verified in a timely manner through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) without her permission.[12]

5 U.S.C. § 552a(b) No agency shall disclose any record… except pursuant to a written request by, or with the prior written consent of, the individual to whom the record pertains.

6 CFR § 5.3(a)… If you are making a request for records about another individual, either a written authorization signed by that individual permitting disclosure of those records to you or proof that that individual is deceased (for example, a copy of a death certificate or an obituary) must be submitted.

6 CFR § 5.21(f): If you are making a request for records concerning (a living) individual (other than yourself)… You must also provide a statement from the individual certifying the individual’s agreement that records concerning the individual may be released to you.

Without Ilhan Omar’s cooperation the American people, and states such as Minnesota, are unable to verify her U.S. citizenship. (Think about that!)

In light of the national security risk posed by Ilhan Omar’s association with Muslim Brotherhood front group the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an unindicted co-conspirator organization in the largest terrorist fundraising trial in American history—the Holy Land Foundation Trial—and sitting on the Foreign Affairs Committee where top-level national security briefings are provided, it is imperative that the Congressional Ethics Committee and/or State Department take the necessary steps in verifying Ilhan Omar’s U.S. citizenship.

The onus is on Congress and Ilhan Omar to prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that she meets all constitutional qualifications, or she must step down.

Otherwise, the United States faces not only an immeasurable national security risk, but ultimately, a Constitutional crisis.

Bernie Sanders’ Record Shows Longtime Communist-Marxist Affiliation

The record on avowed socialist senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders continues to demonstrate that he has been a longtime vocal supporter and fellow-traveler with communists and Marxists.

The Washington Examiner recalled that during the 1980s Sanders — at the time the socialist mayor of Burlington, Vermont — was investigated by the FBI for his ties to Marxist groups. While Sanders “has always played down the extent of his involvement with the [Socialist Workers Party, SWP], which included radicals who praised the Soviet Union and Cuban communists, and has denied ever being a member,” reported the Examiner, Sanders’ personal files from the 1980s, archived at the University of Vermont, “show that he supported and campaigned for the communist SWP and maintained a close relationship with its senior members.”

And while the Democrat Party worked hard to get Jimmy Carter elected in 1980, and unsuccessfully campaigned for his vice president, Walter Mondale, in 1984, throughout the Reagan years Sanders was busy campaigning for Marxist SWP candidates who touted radical platforms destructive to American interests.

In 1980 Sanders “proudly endorsed and supported” SWP candidate Andrew Pulley, who encouraged U.S. soldiers to shoot their commanding officers. At the time Sanders also confirmed that “I fully support the SWP’s continued defense of the Cuban revolution.”

In April Fox News reported on a recently discovered 1986 video of a speech during which Sanders recalls “being very excited when [former Cuban dictator] Fidel Castro made the revolution in Cuba.” Sanders said that “it just seemed right and appropriate that poor people were rising up against rather ugly rich people.”

During his 1980 presidential campaign Pulley “called for the abolition of the U.S. military and the nationalization of ‘virtually all private industry,’ as well as the abolition of the military budget and the establishment of ‘solidarity’ with the revolutionary regimes in Iran, Nicaragua, Grenada and Cuba,” reported the Examiner, citing a report by the New York Times from that era. Additionally, according to the Examiner, “Pulley hailed the Cuban revolution as a model for the United States and claimed that ‘racism [had] been abolished’ on the island. His running mate, Matilde Zimmermann, described the contention that Cubans lived under a dictatorship as American ‘propaganda.’”

Four years later, Sanders “backed and campaigned for the SWP presidential nominee Mel Mason, a former Black Panther, saying it was important for there to be ‘fundamental alternatives to capitalist ideology,’” reported the Examiner.

The Examiner article recalled that the same Socialist Workers Party that Sanders so ardently endorsed “has a long history of radicalism, starting at its beginning in 1938 when it was founded by devotees of Leon Trotsky, the Russian revolutionary and communist thinker who was assassinated by the Soviet government over his criticisms of the regime. Yet Trotsky’s legacy lived on, not only in the Soviet Union and the developing nations, but in the United States, where it attracted trade unionists, academics, bohemians, and an ambitious Vermont mayor.”

In his 1984 endorsement of SWP presidential candidate Mel Mason, Sanders wrote: “At a time when the Democratic and Republican parties are intellectually and spiritually bankrupt, it is imperative for radical voices to be heard which offer fundamental alternatives to capitalist ideology.”

Writing in the New York Post in 2016, columnist Paul Sperry suggested that some of Sanders’ past ties actually qualified him to be called a communist. For example, wrote Sperry, in 1964 while a student at the University of Chicago, “Sanders joined the Young People’s Socialist League, the youth wing of the Socialist Party USA. He also organized for a communist front, the United Packinghouse Workers Union, which at the time was under investigation by the House Committee on Un-American Activities.”

After graduating with a degree in political science and moving to Vermont, wrote Sperry, Sanders “headed the American People’s History Society, an organ for Marxist propaganda. There, he produced a glowing documentary on the life of socialist revolutionary Eugene Debs, who was jailed for espionage during the Red Scare and hailed by the Bolsheviks as “America’s greatest Marxist.”

Elected mayor of Burlington, Vermont in 1981, Sanders “restricted property rights for landlords, set price controls and raised property taxes to pay for communal land trusts,” recalled Sperry. And in 1985 Sanders “traveled to Managua to celebrate the rise to power of the Marxist-Leninist Sandinista government. He called it a ‘heroic revolution.’”

Continued Sperry: “Sanders also adopted a Soviet sister city outside Moscow and honeymooned with his second wife in the USSR. He put up a Soviet flag in his office, shocking even the Birkenstock-wearing local liberals. At the time, the Evil Empire was on the march around the world, and threatening the U.S. with nuclear annihilation.”

Nineteen-eighty-eight appears to be the year that Sanders decided to begin subtly distancing himself from his Marxist roots, as he publicly endorsed Jesse Jackson in the Democrat Party’s presidential primary.

Two years later Sanders was elected the the U.S. Senate as an Independent, and since then he has been hard at work publicly massaging his radical socialist-Marxist record into a presidential platform palatable to gullible, uninformed millennial voters.
