Presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has been a prominent supporter of marijuana legalization despite warning in 2003 that nationwide legalization could lead to "drug addiction, health problems, [and] traffic accidents."
In the Senate, Warren has authored one bill and backed another that would partially or fully decriminalize marijuana at the federal level. She claimed in 2018 that "federal marijuana laws have perpetuated our broken criminal justice system, created barriers to research, and hindered economic development."

On February 18, 2019, Freedom Domain podcaster, Stefan Molyneux discussed the facts surrounding the recent Jussie Smollett hoax. Many radio show hosts and podcasters have already weighed in on the subject mostly for the purpose of showing the mainstream media and political hypocrisy surrounding the case.
Molyneux and others had many of the same talking points from Smollet’s connection to key Democrats who are trying to advance an anti-lynching bill to the potential that the failing actor potentially tried to keep himself from being written off the FOX original television series, Empire.
But Molyneux also showed a very disturbing trend that most in the media simply will not report. The mainstream media is quick to support any situation that fits the “Trump supporters are bullies” narrative and give little to no acknowledgement to when the scenario has been proven false. It seems that the real issue that is largely not being reported is the growing number of these false flag incidents.
However, Smollett’s high profile false-allegation case overshadows a much larger problem as Stefan Molyneux pointed out via Andy Ngo, another pod-caster and journalist. It turns out that this case was is not so unique as there have been numerous attacks and acts of vandalism staged in order to paint a picture of Trump supporters, white males, and conservatives in general, that better fits the leftist narrative.
In December of 2018, Kissie Ram of Drake University in Des Moines was charged with making false reports in the previous month for racial notes which she made to herself and other students. A total of four notes was made by her and a fifth note was made to Keith Walker earlier in the same month and is also suspected to be a hoax as Walker is not cooperating with police.
Colorado Springs, CO--September of 2017 racial slurs were written on dormitory message boards just outside rooms of black cadet candidates at the Air Force Prep Academy. This prompted Lt. Gen Jay Silveria, superintendent of the Air Force Academy, to deliver a fiery speech regarding the matter. Two months later, a black cadet admitted to writing the slurs. The cadet is no longer attending the academy and due to privacy concerns, it is unknown if he was expelled or left on his own.
Bean Blossom, Indiana- St. David’s Episcopal Church was vandalized in late November of 2016, just after Donald Trump was elected. A spray-painted swastika, the words “heil Trump” and “fag church” were found on a Sunday morning. The incident was widely publicized by many in the mainstream media including USA Today, CNN, The Southern Poverty Law Center, and the Washington Post (who had 15 articles published on it). This was, of course blamed on the election outcome, but the reality was that it was the church’s own organist, George Nathaniel Stang, who, in his own words was trying to “mobilize a movement” against the then president-elect.
In November of 2016, just before the election of Donald Trump, a black church in Greenville, Mississippi was vandalized with the words “vote Trump” and set ablaze. Originally called a “hate crime” by the media, it was later found out that the incident was a hoax perpetrated by one of Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church’s own members. In it’s reporting of the revelation that Andrew McClinton, a black felon started the fire, the Washington Post managed to dedicate the first three paragraphs of the story to an opinionated blaming the Trump campaign for the original presumption.
New York City, NY—On December 3, 2016, it was reported that 18 year-old Yasmin Seweid, a student from the Muslim Baruch College was reportedly harassed by three drunk white male Trump supporters on the subway train. According to Seweid, they kept screaming Trump’s name, called her a terrorist, broke her bag strap, and pulled at her hijab. However, on December 15, 2016 the young Muslim college student had been arrested for filing a false report after allegedly admitting to police that the story was made up. In its reporting, Washington Post once again provided an excuse for lie, by calling the original (false) report “all too familiar”, suggesting that real attacks from Trump supporters were at increased levels.
At the University of Michigan another Muslim student(authorities refuse to release the name) reported that on November 11, 2016, a white male demanded she remove her hijab, or he would set her afire with a lighter. The Ann Arbor Police determined that the story was once-again false. This, of course didn’t prevent The Council of American Islam Relations (CAIR-Hamas) from coming the lying woman’s defense, claiming that Islamaphobia is on the rise. Ironically, the pseudo-terrorist organization failed to acknowledge the increase in hate crimes against those deemed as “Trump supporters”.
Long Island, NY, Nassau Community College— In December of 2016, Indian-American Jasskirat Saini was arrested for at least ten occurrences of writing “KKK” and drawing swastikas on the college campus. Although his acts were in reaction to feeling slighted by the local Jewish community, initial media reports linked the graffiti to the election of Donald Trump and alt-right nationalism.
Jussie Smollett’s fake attack took place in Chicago where he claimed that he was told by his paid assailants that he was in “Trump Country.” This, of course was one of the ironies in his allegations. Chicago’s voter make-up is, much like that of New York—mostly progressive and NOT in support of Donald Trump. In September of 2018, Adwoa Lewis, a black 19 year-old woman, reported similarly to police that she had been accosted by four teenage Trump supporters who screamed “Trump 2016!” and told her she “didn’t belong here”. She also claimed that she found her car tire slashed the next day with a note that read “go home”. Police investigated and determined that the incident never occurred and Lewis admitted that she had written the note on the car.
In November of 2018, black students protested on the campus of Goucher College in Baltimore after racial graffiti was discovered. Swastikas, lists of names of black students and dorm rooms where they lived, and the term “I’m gonna kill all [ni----s]” were all found scrawled in a dorm bathroom. According to Baltimore police, Flynn Ajani Arthur, a 21 year-old black student, was arrested and charged with two counts of malicious destruction of property.
In early 2017, the Trump administration was blamed by the mainstream media for a series of bomb threats at Jewish Community Centers and organizations that took place all over the United States. It was found out later that former Intercept journalist Juan Thompson was responsible for at least a dozen of the fake bomb threats which he tried to pin on his ex-girlfriend.
In December of 2016, a black Philadelphia man, William Tucker, 58 was arrested for “racist and politically charged” graffiti that contained “Trump” on various properties. According to the Philly Voice, the man was charged by Philadelphia police with “vandalism among other offenses.”
Northfield, MN—St. Olaf College was the scene of protests which forced the college to cancel classes in May of 2017 due to a racist note that left pinned to a black student Samantha Wells’ car. The president of the college later said that the note’s author admitted that it was a hoax. Due to “privacy concerns” the college would not reveal Samantha Wells’ identity.
The aforementioned is only a small number of the numerous examples of fake crimes designed to appear as if whites, conservatives, or Donald Trump supporters engaged in acts of hate consistent with the media and leftist narrative.
The Southern Poverty Law Center(SPLC), a leftist anti-American organization has published several news stories regarding the rise in “hate” crimes since the election of Donald Trump. Being a communist-ideological organization, the SPLC stands against freedom and liberty of the masses. As such, its reporting relies on manipulation of data with the intent to trick Americans into trading liberty for governmental control of everyday life.
One such report, in November of 2017 held that the number of hate crimes reached “a five-year high” with a noticeable “uptick toward the end of the year around Donald Trump’s [election]”. The assumption was that Trump supporters were responsible for the increased hate crimes, but the publication showed no actual evidence of this.
As it was written, the FBI reported a 25.9% increase in hate crimes between October and December of 2016 versus the same time in 2015. However, the percentage is misleading in that it represents complaints with no supporting data. It is also unclear how many of the complaints are actual and how many are false.
The same article attempted to appear to break down the data, but essentially reported vague percentages so to continue the presumption that “racist Trump supporters” were responsible. The article claimed that “The FBI said 58.9% of victims were targeted because of their ethnicity, race or ancestry bias”, “21.1% were picked out because of their religious affiliation and 16.7% were attacked because of the offenders’ sexual-orientation bias.”
During the Trump campaign there were many incidents where Trump supporters were victims of violence due to whites who aligned with leftist groups such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter. In other words, the SPLC claimed that 46.3% of the hate crime offenders were white but did not bother to investigate or report how many of them perpetrated hate crimes against other whites who may have been Trump supporters.
Antifa, after all is a predominately white leftist organization that has, in recent years, become emboldened to commit more violent acts against conservatives and Trump supporters. The left in general has overall increased its level of violence against anyone that disagrees with its philosophy of government enslavement.
The mainstream media and many on the left have either made excuses or even downplayed Jussie Smollett's behavior. Those on the left who are upset with him see his staged act as demeaning to "real" victims in the intersectionality spectrum, particularly where black gay males are concerned. Yet not a word from the left has been dedicated to empathy for the victims for whom this action was targeted.
Chicago mayor, Raum Emanuel defended his city in a news interview with CNN's Don Lemon in which he railed against the media in its reporting of the matter. But rather than being upset with the false story itself offending a segment of his population, he worried angrily that it might prevent young people "struggling with [their]sexuality" from coming out in a city that could be considered homophobic. Similarly, Van Jones, in a separate interview was upset with Smollett because he used his sexuality as a way to try to gain more money.
However, no one on the left or in the mainstream media has even mentioned that this happened in an attempt to label literally half the population of the United States as racist in nature. Since the Smollett case is only one of many, it is likely that staged attacks will continue to happen. People will continue to stage fake attacks by fake Trump supporters and the mainstream media with do its damage and barely acknowledge when they get it wrong. The most important agenda for the left is to ensure that a narrative is followed at all costs--even if it is a lie.
