Nancy Pelosi Credits Government For Creation Of The iPhone (VIDEO)

Nancy Pelosi iPhone

You might think that Apple and Steve Jobs deserve credit for creation of the iPhone but Nancy Pelosi thinks differently. For her, like most progressives, government is everything and deserves credit for such an innovation.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Pelosi Claims Government Created the iPhone, Not Steve Jobs or Apple

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) claimed Thursday that the federal government created the iPhone rather than the technology company Apple or its former chief executive officer, Steve Jobs.

“Anybody here have a smartphone?” Pelosi asked an audience at a Democratic National Convention Platform hearing in Washington, D.C.

Pelosi then held up an iPhone for everyone to see, telling those in the room, “In this smartphone, almost everything came from federal investments in research.”

She then listed elements of the iPhone that various parts of the government have contributed to in certain ways.

“The list goes on and on. If you want to learn more, look at the Association for the Advancement of Science in America, and they have the full list,” Pelosi said. “They say Steve Jobs did a good idea designing it and putting it together. Federal research invented it.”

Pelosi was speaking at the Mid-Atlantic Democratic Platform Forum, one of a series of events to prepare the Democratic Party’s platform for its convention this summer in Philadelphia.

Democratic Platform Committee Member Thinks NO ONE SHOULD OWN A GUN (VIDEO)

Bonnie Schaefer PT

If you think Hillary and the Democrats aren’t coming after people’s guns, guess again. A member of their platform committee recently made the party’s position on the issue quite clear.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

DNC Platform Committee Member Doesn’t Think ‘Anyone Should Have a Gun’

A member of the Democratic National Committee’s Platform Committee said at a planning event Wednesday that she does not believe anyone in the United States should own a gun.

“I really don’t personally think anyone should have a gun,” Bonnie Schaefer, former Claire’s Stores CEO and North Carolina resort and spa owner, said. “I mean that’s just my own philosophy.”

Schaefer proceeded to argue that nothing good can come from having guns available to the public.

“Nothing is ever solved when you have a gun in your hand, except the worst possible scenario,” she added.

Schaefer’s comments came during a discussion about gun violence in relation to the Democratic Party’s 2016 platform at the Mid-Atlantic Democratic Platform Forum in Washington, D.C.

SOCIALIST PARADISE: Venezuelans Reduced to Picking Through Garbage For Food (VIDEO)

Venezuela Garbage

American progressives are certain that socialism will work here if it’s just done the right way. They might want to ask the people of Venezuela how it’s working out for them.

The Associated Press reports:

As hunger mounts, Venezuelans turn to trash for food

Until recently, Julio Noguera worked at a bakery. Now he spends his evenings searching through the garbage for food.

“I come here looking for food because if I didn’t, I’d starve to death,” Noguera said as he sorted through a pile of moldy potatoes. “With things like they are, no one helps anyone and no one gives away meals.”

Across town, unemployed people converge every dusk at a trash heap on a downtown Caracas sidewalk to pick through rotten fruit and vegetables tossed out by nearby shops. They are frequently joined by small business owners, college students and pensioners — people who consider themselves middle class even though their living standards have long ago been pulverized by triple-digit inflation, food shortages and a collapsing currency.

Venezuela’s poverty had eased during the administration of the late President Hugo Chavez. But a study by three leading Caracas universities found that 76 percent of Venezuelans are now under the poverty line, compared with 52 percent in 2014.

Federal Government Spending Nearly $20,000 To SETTLE EVERY SINGLE REFUGEE

German Refugees

The federal government is spending almost $20,000 on the settlement of every refugee coming into the United States.

Mind you, this is before they are given access to food stamps, Medicaid, and a host of other welfare services.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Feds spend nearly $20,000 to settle every refugee

Federal taxpayers are on the hook for nearly $20,000 just to settle each refugee and asylum seeker, who are then immediately eligible for cash welfare, food stamps, housing and medical aid, according to a new report on the “refugee industry.”

The report provided federal budget figures showing that the government spends $19,884 on each refugee the U.S. takes in.

And that number is set to jump if President Obama gets his way and brings in an additional 10,000 Syrian refugees in this year.

The report from the Negative Population Growth Inc. said that the U.S. is currently accepting about 95,000 refugees and asylees. That is in addition to the over 500,000 legal and illegal immigrants coming to the U.S.

It focused on the industry created to accept the $1.8 billion in federal support to help refugees settle and sign up for further cash awards from Uncle Sam. The refugee agencies get a small portion, or about $1,875 per refugee they help. The rest goes to the United Nations, which helps to determine eligible refugees, and state agencies.

The State Department spends about $1.28 billion, and Health and Human Services another $609 million.

Obama and other Democrats are determined to bankrupt America while changing the electorate by creating new Democrats.

We need a serious change in leadership. Fast.

OOPS! California Democrat Served Legal Papers AT HIS OWN VICTORY PARTY

Isadore Hall

Is corruption a requirement for running as a Democrat? California Democrat Isadore Hall was enjoying his victory party last night when he was served legal papers for a real estate deal gone bad.

The Los Angeles Times reported:

Isadore Hall served with subpoena at election night party

State Sen. Isadore Hall (D-Compton) was met by a process server at his congressional campaign’s election party in San Pedro on Tuesday night, and was served with a subpoena in a lawsuit over a real estate deal, CBS 2-TV reported. Hall, who has been accused by opponent Nanette Barragán of campaign finance violations , is leading Barragán in early returns for South L.A.’s 44th Congressional District seat.

Hall is clearly a great fit for his party.

He’s even got a head start on having his own scandal.

Associated Press Warns Employees to Be Vigilant Over Threats From Bernie Supporters

Bernie supporters Hillary

Bernie Sanders supporters are extremely angry at the Associated Press for calling the Democratic nomination for Hillary Clinton the night before the California primary.

As a result, the AP has received a lot of push back and is now warning its employees.

Poynter reports:

AP reminds employees to be vigilant after backlash from Sanders supporters

The Associated Press on Tuesday advised staffers to “practice situational awareness” at their bureaus and offices in the wake of social media pushback from supporters of Bernie Sanders who were angered by its decision to call the Democratic nomination for Hillary Clinton.

Danny Spriggs, the AP’s vice president for global security, notified employees that their colleagues were receiving incensed phone calls, emails and social media messages from Sanders backers but noted that the news cooperative hadn’t “received any specific security threats.”

Some AP staff have received angry communications in the form of emails, social media messages and phone calls. We have not received any specific security threats. If you need to respond to complaints, feel free to point the public to the statements on our blog as appropriate.

…It is always good to practice situational awareness around AP bureaus and offices.

Bernie supporters are lucky for one thing. They’re not being treated as terrorists by the lamestream media.

If Trump supporters were making AP employees feel unsafe, it’d be front page news.

Bernie Supporters Brutally Beat Each Other, Suddenly Realize They’re All Bernie Supporters

Sen. Bernie Sanders supporters were recently caught on camera beating each other up, mistaking each as Donald Trump supporters.

Not one of them would pass a basic civics test but they think they know what’s best for the rest of us.

Lovely.

Obama Uses The Bible To Justify School Decree ON TRANSGENDER BATHROOMS

Obama point

When Obama was first running for president back in 2008, he told the American people he opposed gay marriage due to his Christian faith. That was obviously a lie.

Now, eight years later, he’s trying to use the Bible to justify his decree on transgender bathrooms in schools.

The Christian Post reports:

Obama Uses Bible, Christian Faith to Defend Transgender Bathroom Directive to Schools

President Barack Obama said that his understanding of the Bible and his Christian beliefs led him to issue the directive at public schools calling on students to be allowed to use the bathroom of their choosing regardless of their biological sex.

“My reading of scripture tells me that that [the] Golden Rule is pretty high up there in terms of my Christian belief,” he said during a town hall in Elkhart, Indiana, according to Breitbart News on Thursday.

When asked why he decided to make such a big issue out of school bathrooms, Obama explained that his concern stems from the bullying that transgender students experience.

“What happened and what continues to happen is you have transgender kids in schools and they get bullied and they get ostracized and it’s tough for them,” the president explained.

Obama said that he understands not all people agree with him, and added:

“I have profound respect for everybody’s religious beliefs on this, but if you’re at a public school, the question is, how do we just make sure that, children are treated with kindness.”

If Obama truly respected people of faith, we wouldn’t be in this situation.

He also wouldn’t be forcing faith based organizations to provide birth control.

Dem Lets Kid Use Car With Congressional Plates TO DRIVE FOR LYFT

Elijah Cummings

Maryland Democrat Elijah Cummings has been caught letting his daughter use his car – with congressional license plates – to make money by driving for the car service Lyft.

CNN reported:

Congressman’s daughter uses car with official plates to drive for Lyft

No, that’s not Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings driving for Lyft in his downtime.

But his daughter, Adia, who borrowed her father’s car, may have made her passengers feel like VIPs since the black Honda she uses was sporting official congressional license plates.

Lyft is a company that provides rides to subscribers who summon a car to pick them up using an app on their phone.
The Washington Post first reported that Cummings did lend his car to his daughter, who was a student at Howard University.

Someone posted a picture of the car with a Lyft sticker on a D.C. blog called “Popville” and asked which member of Congress worked for the company. The picture showed the vehicle with Maryland plates that read “US Congress” and the number “7,” which designates Cummings’ district in Baltimore, and the “Reliable Sources” gossip column at the Post solved the mystery.

Cummings explained the situation in a statement to CNN.

“In an effort to earn some extra money to pay her expenses at school, she signed up for a part-time position with one of the ride-sharing companies. They, in turn, gave her a sticker to apply to the windshield of the car,” Cummings said.

The congressman, who is the top ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee and another panel investigating the attacks in Benghazi, says after he spoke with his daughter, the congressional tags have been removed. He took responsibility for the situation, saying, “I apologize for not having removed the license plate before loaning the vehicle to her.”

Cummings’ office told CNN that the Honda is a personal car, not one leased or purchased through his campaign or official office account.

Good thing he’s not a Republican, otherwise he might be in real trouble.

Venezuela’s Socialist Prez Backs Bernie Sanders BECAUSE OF COURSE HE DOES

Nicolas Maduro

Viva la revolución! Venezuela’s socialist President Nicolas Maduro is a Bernie Sanders fan. Is anyone surprised? Of course, people in Venezuela are starving and Bernie won’t comment on it but who cares? Socialism is great, right?

CNN reports:

Venezuela’s Maduro backs Sanders

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro believes Bernie Sanders would be headed to the White House if the U.S. held “free” and fair elections.

During a television broadcast on Tuesday night, Maduro — who has expressed support for Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, in the past — called the Democratic candidate “our revolutionary friend” and said it was only “an archaic (electoral) system that is 200 years old” keeping him from the presidency.

Maduro’s comments, heard on a video translated by Reuters, were less complimentary of the presumptive Republican nominee.

“Donald Trump could win with the electoral system they have in the United States,” Maduro said. “And you know why? Because Donald Trump is using a force for change hidden in U.S. society.”

Neither campaign responded immediately to requests for comment.

Maybe Bernie can go to work for the Maduro administration when the 2016 election is over.

They were made for each other.
