Well of course because letting the Weasel guard the hen house will work out so well.

Do you have any background information on the website that you linked to: theunionjournsl.com? Where is it based? Who owns it? Many of the articles, including the one cited, seem to be the product of machine translation. Another article was on the University of South Florida firing their football coach “Charlie Sturdy” (his name is Charlie Strong). Another headline was “NFL Week 13: Greatest From Each Recreation”. I have no doubt that people are starving in Venezuela, but this website looks like a bot, to me.

Your right its kinda strange. Carlos Christian is given as the author of all the stories. It shows they have five million followers on Facebook. But when you go there, it is a page for a Credit Union Journal. Another page which is Union Journal has only one follower. Its up to date, as on the home page it talks about Trump going to the NATO summit. Didn't seem at first look to have a journalistic slant, in other words less biased than Time or Newsweek.

It would take a lot of effort to have that complicated a website and be just a hobbyist. Union Journal comes up with nothing on a Google search.

interesting.

Here is Carlos Christian's story on the SCOTUS gun case.

https://theunionjournal.com/supreme-cou ... from-dems/

He's got a story on the Smallville actor getting married. Trump releasing aid to Lebanon. A lot of work for a newspage that you can't find on Google.

He might, but Socialism fails everywhere and ever time it's tried, so Bernie is going to employ Socialism better than anybody else?
