President Donald Trump: The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. (long pause) From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venuzela, wherever socialism or communism has been adopted it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure.You could have heard a pin drop — except for a few gasps and a couple people clapping.
Rep. Marsha Blackburn, one of the most powerful women in Congress, announced last week that she would seek the GOP nomination for the open Senate seat in Tennessee being vacated by Senator Bob Corker. Her campaign posted a link to a video of her announcement on Twitter and sought to buy an ad to promote the video.But Twitter, citing "inflammatory language" in the video announcement, refused to sell any ad space. They deemed a statement by Blackburn on the congressional investigation into Planned Parenthood likely to provoke a "strong negative reaction." It would be a shame if this went viral & helped her win!
