We can now count Bernie Sanders as a reliable foot soldier for the gun control agenda.
Since announcing his run for the U.S. Presidency, the Vermont Senator has been on Twitter laying out his campaign priorities.
In a recent tweet, Bernie Sanders towed the Democratic Party line on gun control.
Using the same epidemic language that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invoked after President Trump’s State of the Union Address, Sanders has made it clear that gun control will be a key plank of his campaign.
I’m running for president because we must end the epidemic of gun violence in this country. We need to take on the NRA, expand background checks, end the gun show loophole and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons.
Ironically, Sanders received a lukewarm endorsement from NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre in the 1990s during one of Sanders’s congressional runs. LaPierre went as far as to say that “Bernie Sanders is a more honorable choice for Vermont sportsmen than Peter Smith.” This was in reference to the Republican incumbent’s decision to come out in favor of an assault weapons ban.
However, things have changed in recent times. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Sanders received a D- rating from the NRA. However, that was not enough for the likes of Hilary Clinton, who blasted him for not being sufficiently anti-gun throughout the 2016 Democratic primaries.
Clinton asserted that “When it really mattered, Senator Sanders voted with the gun lobby and I voted against the gun lobby,” which referenced a bill Sanders voted for that shielded gun manufacturers and sellers from legal liability due to firearm misusage.
Fast forward to 2019, Sanders is now faithfully following the gun control script. And it’s a sign of the times. His home state of Vermont has been taking an anti-gun course over the past few years. In 2018, Republican Governor Phil Scott signed S.55 into law, which includes bump stock ban, universal background checks, and red flag gun confiscation provisions.
As a self-proclaimed socialist, it is no surprise Sanders is now unabashedly supporting gun control. Socialists believe in control of all facets of human life, from business activities down to how people defend themselves.
At the end of the day, people won’t let others confiscate their private property without a fight. For that reason, socialists make sure to restrict firearm ownership as much possible to prevent uprisings.
Bernie Sanders can claim to be a democratic socialist all he wants, but his proposals will lead to anything but a democratic outcome.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
