Conspiracy Theorist: 7/26

From Venezuela to the US By Mark Luedtke Self-serving leftists point to Sweden and Norway as examples where socialism supposedly works while conveniently ignoring places like Cuba and Venezuela where it obviously doesn’t. This is a false argument. Socialism doesn’t work in Sweden or Norway. Sweden and Norway are fascist welfare states much like the […]

Clinton guilty (again) Mark Luedtke If Donald Trump had carelessly made classified information vulnerable to Russian and Chinese hackers and the FBI found out about it, he’d never see the outside of a prison cell again.
