Their big focus now is making the world safe through Socialism…
Here are a couple of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.
Pentagon Hosts Event Promoting Socialism
The National Defense University (NDU) is a specialty academic institution founded by the US Department of Defense and funded by the US taxpayer.
NDU’s aim is to provide advanced education for senior leaders in the field of national security.
So naturally their big focus now is making the world safer… through Socialism.
Earlier this month, NDU hosted an event called, “Responding to China: The Case For Global Justice and Democratic Socialism.”
During the event, French economist Thomas Piketty who argued that global security requires “promoting a new emancipatory and egalitarian horizon on a global scale, a new form of democratic and participatory, ecological and post-colonial socialism.”
He argued that if the US sticks to its “dated hyper-capitalist model, Western countries may find it extremely difficult to meet the Chinese challenge.”
In other words, Piketty believes the US should prepare itself against China by becoming more like China.
Piketty’s concluding remarks asked, “what about sharing at least a fraction of global tax revenues paid by the world’s most powerful economic actors (multinationals, billionaires) between all countries according to population?”
Global taxation distributed by population…
How interesting that the US has the most wealth to tax, while China has the highest population to distribute it among.
It’s almost like this Pentagon-run college is promoting China’s agenda…
Brooklyn Gang Stole Over $4 million from COVID-Unemployment
Forget drugs and robbery; a Brooklyn gang found a new lucrative hustle at the start of the pandemic: federal unemployment benefits.
11 members of the Woo gang in New York City have been arrested for making over $20 million in false unemployment claims when governments started handing out more cash in the wake of COVID-19.
All they needed was a stolen ID, name, and Social Security Number which they purchased on the dark web.
In total, they collected $4.3 million, which was quickly converted to cash, transferred, or spent— making it almost impossible to recover.
And they would have gotten away with it… if they hadn’t posted about the scheme on social media. They even made a YouTube video bragging, “unemployment got us workin’ a lot.”
The volume of claims the government received, and lax verification, made the opportunity “too easy,” as one of them said in a Facebook post.
