(Natural News) Earlier this month, electronic pop music star Moby made an argument that has the liberals absolutely outraged. What was the argument, you might ask? That food stamps shouldn’t pay for junk food – because God forbid somebody insists that taxpayer money shouldn’t be used on welfare recipients looking to stock up on Twinkies and Ho-Hos (sarcasm intended).

“Right now, a congressional arm-wrestling match is pitting those who want to preserve funding for SNAP against those who want to gut it,” Moby wrote in an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, adding that while SNAP really does help people in need, “it also puts a lot of unhealthful food on America’s plate.” The music star continued, “Its costs are huge, as are the added costs of treating diabetes, hypertension and other illnesses that poor eating habits cause.”

Truthfully, this argument seems like a rational solution to both health problems in the United States and wasteful spending within our welfare system. If welfare recipients are going to be getting money from the federal government (aka the American taxpayers), then it only makes sense that the money should be solely for healthy food instead of candy bars and chocolate cake. But like with most other rational solutions that have been proposed to solve the problems America faces, the liberals are standing in the way.

Indeed, Moby faced a substantial amount of backlash after writing his piece for the Wall Street Journal. Liberal feminist and senior staff writer at Upworthy.com Parker Molloy took to Twitter and wrote, “Things Moby’s op-ed doesn’t address: 1, food deserts, 2, the fact that healthy food can be expensive, 3, the fact that some families on SNAP might not have the time/equipment to prepare healthy foods.” Another liberal blogger with the Twitter username “jes skolnik / texas calboy” wrote, “dear moby this is a bad and classist opinion other people’s bodies are none of yr business.”

Regarding Parker Molloy’s comment that healthy food can be expensive and that some families might not have time to prepare healthy food, here’s an idea that could enrage leftists even more than Moby’s comments in the Wall Street Journal: How about some of these welfare recipients find work so that they can more easily afford healthier foods? The idea that the American taxpayers have to subsidize bad eating habits just because buying healthy food would be mildly inconvenient to welfare recipients is absurd. (Related: In a shocking interview, a welfare recipient admitted to sitting at home, smoking weed and waiting for government money.)

Past research has shown that an enormous amount of welfare money is being spent on sweets and non-essential food products. According to a report published by the United States Department of Agriculture, Americans use food stamps to buy over $600 million worth of “sweetened beverages,” in addition to hundreds of millions more of sugary snacks and unhealthy foods.

Specifically, food stamps worth roughly $1.3 billion were spent on “sweetened drinks, desserts, salty snacks, candy, and sugar,” which accounted for about one-fifth of every dollar spent on food items purchased by 26.5 million households in the year 2011, according to the report. (Related: Children of welfare recipients are more likely to become dependent on government handouts.)

The main problem with this is that, obviously, the excessive consumption of sugary foods and drinks leads to poor health, and when welfare recipients experience a decline in health, then they rely on the American taxpayers again for medical expenses. Contrary to what the liberals tend to believe, our country’s welfare system should strive to make people more self-sufficient in the long run, not less. There’s a lot of work that needs to be done to reform the entire welfare system, but a good starting point would be to require that welfare money is used solely for healthy food products.

Applauded by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, liberals have devised a plan they think will destroy normal Americans in a new “Civil War.” But here’s the spoiler alert: it’s isn’t really that good of a plan, to begin with.

San Francisco-based social media platform Twitter isn’t known for their unbiased approach to social media. Now, the CEO applauded an article in something called Medium in which the writer of said article described how liberals intend to crush Normal Americans into serfdom in a bloodless “civil war.”

The goal of the “war” will be to turn the entire United States into California by offering up a supermajority of liberals in political power.  Because that’s working out so well in California: homelessness is spiking uncontrollably, the tax burden is forcing people to leave, regulations are shutting businesses, housing costs have soared to unbearable levels, and few have basic human rights there unless they pay the government for permission.  Try not to roll your eyes when you imagine your own state running like the communists in charge handle California.

Townhall said it best:

“Why do a bunch of San Francisco dorks think that 150 million Americans with 300 million guns are just going to give up their rights and their say in their own governance and submit to the commands of people who eat kale by choice?” That’s a fair question, and they have an answer.

Because you just are.

I didn’t say it was a good answer.

All humor aside, the article didn’t actually lay out anything that could even remotely be considered a war plan. And the problem with liberals taking over is the same as it’s been throughout history.

Normal Americans are not going to simply give up their rights and their self-determination because a bunch of liberals want them to. Sure, the weaponization of culture with corporations and tech companies trying to silence and marginalize decent citizens is troubling, but in short order, there will be a backlash as Normals react to these new, overtly fascist tactics. –Townhall

Even with enough brainwashing and propaganda, eventually, most people will figure out that they are being controlled.  Humans don’t want to be controlled; the default has always been freedom.  Once they figure it out, a liberal government will crumble and that may happen well before there’s any hope of convincing those who actually exercise their rights to give them up.

The harsh reality is that a Civil War would not be something, anyone, liberals included, should hope for. The last one in the United State was bloody and pitted brother against brother and shouldn’t be an aspiration. But when people are intentionally disregarded and oppressed, they will often react. It almost feels like liberals want to push people to a war then point their fingers and say “ha! We told you so! THEY are they violent ones!”

Award-winning journalist and news anchor Ben Swann was first suspended by CBS Atlanta after announcing the return of his Reality Check segment, then later fired.

UPDATE: On Monday morning CBS46 fired journalist and anchor Ben Swann. In an official statement, CBS46 General Manager Lyle Banks stated, “Ben Swann is no longer an employee of WGCL-TV, effective immediately.”

On Friday, award-winning journalist Ben Swann was suspended as the evening anchor for CBS46 in Atlanta. Only hours before the suspension Swann had released a new video – his first independent video since January 2017 – announcing his impending return to the independent/alternative news arena. Rodney Ho of AJC.com was the first to report on the news.

“CBS46 evening anchor Ben Swann has been taken off the air after his efforts to revive his independent investigative operation he called Reality Check came to light today,” Ho wrote. “On Thursday night, Swann posted a video on Vimeo teasing about an upcoming new project he planned to announce next Tuesday. He only identified himself as an “investigative journalist” and did not reference his ties to CBS46.”

Ho goes on to state that once CBS46 learned of Swann’s extracurricular activity he was suspended and his video was removed from Vimeo. A copy of the video is still available on Twitter and has been seen more than 16,000 times as of Monday morning. Activist Post confirmed the suspension with CBS46 Atlanta. When pressed for more information regarding the cause of the suspension, CBS46 News Director Steve Doerr told Activist Post via email, “We don’t have a comment at this time.” Doerr only became news director in July 2017 and was not the News Director at the time of Swann’s initial blackout in February 2017. Sources close to the situation tell Activist Post that Doerr was aware of Swann’s attempts to bring back his popular Reality Check segment.

Swann “went dark” on February 1, 2017 as his social media accounts on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and elsewhere were suddenly deactivated. Swann is a well-known local journalist at CBS46 in Atlanta, as well as a viral Internet sensation for his Reality Check investigative reports. Swann’s Reality Check reports began to garner attention around the 2012 U.S. election and have continued to gain millions of views while questioning the mainstream narrative.

Prior to his disappearance, Swann had been under attack by much of the corporate media for his now notorious Reality Check segment on the controversial Pizzagate theory. During the segment, Swann draws attention to what he sees as curious aspects of the theory which warrant further attention. Swann was immediately attacked by The Daily Beast (going so far as to place a tin-foil hat on the journalist), the Inquisitr, and many other publications. CBS46 initially defended Ben Swann’s reporting, but later appeared to take the blame for allowing the report to air.

In mid-December 2017, Ben Swann began posting in the forums of the cryptocurrency, DASH. While an increasing amount of public attention is given to the popular cryptocurrency Bitcoin, many people in the privacy focused crypto community are placing their support behind DASH.  Originally released under the name “Darkcoin” back in 2014, the crypto would later be rebranded as DASH, or digital cash.

The biggest feature that sets DASH apart from Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is the use of self-governing, self-funding protocol. This allows users to submit proposals to the treasury which help grow the DASH community and potentially receive funding. Users submit proposals via forums in the DASH community. It is in these forums where Ben Swann successfully sought funding for reviving Reality Check and his Truth In Media website. After the proposal was approved by the DASH community Ben Swann’s team began working on fulfilling their end of the arrangement, promising new episodes of Reality Check every Tuesday and Thursday throughout February, March and April.  Swann also confirmed that he will begin appearing publicly starting with the Anarchapulco conference in Acapulco, Mexico in late February.

However, Swann’s suspension could spell trouble for his arrangement with the DASH community. The intrepid journalist obviously has enough support to completely sever ties with the mainstream and go independent, but he is likely contractually obligated to CBS46 Atlanta. Activist Post will continue to follow the situation and provide updates as they come.

Former Mayor, U.S. Congressman, and famous peace advocate Dennis Kucinich formally announced his run for Governor of the state of Ohio on January 17, 2018. With current Governor John Kasich stepping down due to term limit constraints, leaving a trail of lost jobs, economic stagnation, crumbling infrastructure, police state measures, and environmental destruction in his wake, the Governor’s race is a little crowded in the scramble to fill the position. However, while the other candidates are traditional “conservative” and “liberal” special interest puppets, Kucinich has now thrown his hat into the ring as well.

Known nationally for being one of the few congressmen who voted against the Iraq war and the PATRIOT Act, opposed Free Trade, ran for President twice, and opposed America’s disastrous imperialism in Libya and Syria as well as a number of attempts at war with Iran, Kucinich is well-known in Ohio for his refusal to sell city-owned utilities to private companies.

“The same person, battle scars and all, is before you today, with a wealth of experience, no less ready to stand up, to speak out, to take on corrupt interests on behalf of the people of Ohio, ready to be the voice that bridges left and right, a clear voice unafraid to call things like I see them,” Kucinich said.

Kucinich is framing his campaign around the slogan #PowerToWeThePeople and has already released a number of platform points that include rebuilding Ohio’s Infrastructure, increasing the minimum wage, protecting public ownership, creating a state-run broadband company that would compete with private providers and effectively create net neutrality. Kucinich is also advocating for a universal healthcare option for the state.

Kucinich is decidedly pro medical marijuana and opposed to the disastrous drug war. “Ohio will protect its constitutional right to dispense medical marijuana. We will broaden the conversation towards decriminalization, legalization and licensing to provide hundreds of millions of dollars in increased revenues to the state, to help pay for our expanded health programs. With the help of our congressional delegation we will make necessary changes in federal policy,” Kucinich says.

Kucinich is also well-versed in the GMO debate and the question of sustainable farming versus corporate farming. After all, his wife, Elizabeth Kucinich, has campaigned tirelessly against GMOs, herself being an Executive Producer of GMO OMG, a popular film dealing with the issues of GMOs.

The candidate favors a sharp move toward growing clean, healthy food in Ohio as well as the production of hemp. Kucinich states,

Agriculture is the foundation of a healthy economy. Farmers are the backbone of human health and our environmental stewards. We will engage farmers in an inclusive opportunity to increase their bottom line. Ohio’s farmers will have a friend in the Governor’s office. In the coming weeks. I will announce an unprecedented plan to bring together farmers, scientists and our university talent to will enable Ohio’s farmers to profit from ecologically-friendly farming so that they can grow wholesome, nutritious, healthy food which will strengthen Ohio’s position as a leading agricultural export state. Regenerative agriculture is the path to carbon sequestration and restoration of our global climate. Regenerative agricultural practices will mean that farmers can reduce expenditures on agricultural input, help boost soil health, reduce exposure to chemicals, limit damaging nutrient runoff into the lake, improving our ability to provide clean drinking water. Ohio’s farmers will be compensated for being on the front lines of climate mitigation. We will also explore removing barriers to growing industrial hemp.

Kucinich has also taken a strong stance against fracking in Ohio, recently releasing a detailed statement detailing his plan to ultimately end the practice and remediate any damages that may have been done to human health and water systems as a result.

Kucinich is no stranger to political campaigns or to taking stands in the face of special interests. He’s known at the national level and he is also widely popular in the Cleveland area which puts him a real position to draw in large amounts of support for his campaign.

Kucinich must first defeat the Democratic political machine to win the nomination of his party before moving on to the general election to face the Republican nominee.

Nurse Taiyesha Baker of Riley Children’s Health in Indiana is under investigation for tweeting that every white male baby is “a detriment to society” that “should be sacrificed to the wolves.”

“Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son. Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be a terrorist, rapist, racist, killer, and domestic violence all star. Historically every son you had should be sacrificed to the wolves B***h,” Baker said on Twitter.

Here’s some more of her tweets:

Though her account was later deleted, Baker celebrated her new found fame after her tweet went viral:

Indiana University Health released this statement to PJ Media:

We are aware of several troubling posts on social media which appear to be from a recently hired IU Health employee. Our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts. During the investigation, that employee (who does not work at Riley Hospital for Children) will have no access to patient care.

“When asked which department Baker works in, the hospital declined to answer,” PJ Media reported.

Her statements are interesting considering the recent viral story of Wanda Nuckles and other nurses who let WW2 veteran James Dempsey die as they laughed.

There needs to be a police investigation if anyone has died under Baker’s care.

UPDATE:

Riley Children’s Health’s PR Team released a new statement on Facebook: “A recently hired IU Health employee tied to troubling posts on social media this weekend is no longer an employee of IU Health.”
