Published

According to FightBack!News, The Chicago Teachers Union has a delegation in Venezuela getting behind strongman Nicolás Maduro’s regime.

The story details that the delegation’s goal is to “learn what they could from Venezuela’s Bolivarian Revolution, exchange views on effective education and to show solidarity with the students, teachers and social movements of Venezuela.”

The delegation members are sharing their amazement at Venezuela’s socialist experiment on a blog called “Radical Educator Collective.”

The even quoted a Venezuelan official declaring that the communes “make society less individualistic since groups of people are working together to decide their needs and how to work collectively towards solutions.”

Delegation member Sarah Chambers wrote, “This is why Venezuela became a threat to the USA.”

She added, “The USA does not want people to realize that another world is possible with justice and love.”

On Twitter, Chambers wrote that the delegation didn’t see a single homeless person during her visit.

In the blog, they argue that Venezuela’s widespread hunger, crime, and basic food shortages are the result of American sanctions and meddling.

The bloggers argued that the “mainstream news is right that there are some issues in Venezuela, but where they are wrong is who has created those issues.”

The aforementioned delegate, Sarah Chambers, is a CTU Executive Board member. She was fired from her teaching job in 2017. WTTW reported on her firing:

“leaving her own classroom to barge into classrooms of other teachers and issue her own instructions to students, interfering with statewide tests, and participating in a scheme to remove and transport students without any chaperone who had cleared criminal background checks, without alerting school officials which students would be missing from class and which students were unaccounted for….”

Chambers, however, argues that she was fired in retaliation for other issues and the CTU eventually got her reinstated, according to a report from the union.

Venezuela is the most lurid example of socialist failure in present times, which many elements of the radical Left in American have ignored.

They’ll either make excuses or completely ignore what’s going on there to deny the obvious failure of their state-dominant ideology.

This has been the case of previous socialist failures such as the Soviet Union and Cuba.

The Venezuelan case is only solidifying the Left’s tone-deafness to the issue of socialist destruction.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
