Tulsi Gabbard Exposes How Many Democrats Are In the Pockets of War Mongering Defense Contractors (video)

While one party talks like a bunch of anti-war doves, the truth is that they are just as much in the pocket of defense contractors as some Republicans. Talk is cheap.  We know who the Republican war mongers are, but their Democrat counterparts are rarely discussed. 

Ukraine as a country is a mess and is as corrupt as it gets, but the Democratic Party since Obama/Biden and the Clinton Foundation have exploited it for their own corruption and made it worse. The Hunter Biden bribes from Ukrainian oligarchs and energy companies are just the tip of the iceberg. 

Former Democrat Presidential Candidate Tulsi Gabbard has been one of the few in her party to point this out.  We really do not have a very good reason to bring Ukraine into NATO. As it stands now they are more problems then gains. 

The only good argument to protect them is that we agreed to protect Ukraine if they gave up their nuclear weapons. They did and we have not protected them and it was Obama who made that decision the first time Russia invaded part of Ukraine.  Why would anyone give up their nukes or trust our word in such an agreement ever again…especially after what Biden pulled in Afghanistan? 

Why High Tax Rates Benefit the Super Rich (video)

We remember when Phillip-Morris tobacco and food company lobbied Congress to raise taxes on cigarettes. Did they do this out of a concern for the poor?  No.  Did they do it out of a sense of patriotism? No. 

They did it to destroy their competitors. Phillip-Morris is such a huge operation that their economy of scale makes them profitable. They can make products cheaper than almost anyone. So when tobacco taxes are raised Phillip-Morris can pay the tax without changing the price, their smaller competitors can’t absorb the tax and must raise their price this knocking them out of several markets. 

Phillip-Morris is big enough that they can but other tax breaks and favorable regulations to make up for the tobacco tax somewhere else while their smaller competitors do not have such an option.
