There’s an old expression: “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.” In this case, another old expression is even better: “Turnabout is fair play.” We are all still reeling from the Obama years of “transparency,” and “change you can believe in,” that both equated to Doublethink and Doublespeak. Under Obama, everything was hidden from the American people: Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Ukraine/McCain/Nuland, and the Arab Spring. Nancy Pelosi (on the several thousand-paged Obamacare legislation): “We’ll just have to read it after its finished to know what’s in it.”

Democrats or Republicans, they are merely far-left Marxists or center-Marxists; nevertheless, they picked up a taste of their own medicine last week. An article was released on 6/7/18, entitled “Conspiracy Theory Proven Fact as Cops Remove Senator from Wal-Mart Converted Into Detention Center.”

The incident this article describes is very, very important: please read on.

After 10 minutes of waiting and being confronted by local police, he was denied entry and forced to leave.

Later, in a Facebook live video, Merkley remarked: “When an organization has something to hide, not allowing members of Congress to see it, in a democracy, is completely unacceptable…What’s going on is an effort to prevent the press from being able to report to the American people what is happening.  And that’s simply unacceptable.”

Subsequent to all this, it was learned that Southwest Key Programs runs the detention facility. They released this statement three days after Merkley’s statement, on 6/6/18 that ties in to the big picture. Take note of the government agency behind it all, their name emboldened, and their cover story bottom-line, also emboldened for you:

“We regret having to turn away Senator Merkley at our Casa Padre shelter.  The U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) prohibits any facility from allowing visits that have not been approved by them, even if it is a U.S. Senator. With ORR approval, Southwest Key shelters have welcomed elected and other public officials at our facilities in the past, and will continue to do so, because we are proud of...
