December 5 – On this day back in 1933 Prohibition Ends

Comment by Jim Campbell

December 5th, 2019

President Woodrow Wilson, a complete progressive failure signed prohibition into law along with bringing us the federal income tax and the federal reserve.

So much for having an Ivy League Professor as the U.S. President

He also proposed the League of Nations which was never ratified by the United States.

What the young woman in the video above neglected to comment upon was that WWII would have happened regardless as Adolph Hitler a megalomaniac sought to rid the world of Jews and gypsies and create a pure Arian race.

Having been proposed on the 20th of February 1933, the Amendment was ratified on the 5th of December.

Prohibition was introduced in 1920 as a result of the 18th Amendment.

This ban on the sale, production, importation, and transportation of alcoholic beverages was greeted with delight by members of the temperance movement, but many law-abiding Americans who had previously been drinkers felt anger towards the government for criminalizing what they viewed as a harmless activity.

As a result, some members of the public were willing to break the law, and this quickly ushered in a period of criminal activity focused around the production of illegal bootlegged alcohol.

Al Capone, one of prohibition’s most famous gangster bosses, made around $60 million a year from bootlegging alcohol and selling it in so-called ‘speakeasies’.

Izzy Einstein, one of the government’s most famous prohibition agents, demonstrated the scale of the problem facing the authorities who were trying to enforce the ban on alcohol.

When visiting New Orleans it took Einstein just 35 seconds to obtain liquor after his taxi driver offered him a bottle of whiskey.

Combined with many police officers being paid by the criminals to turn a blind eye to illegal activity, prohibition brought lawlessness and corruption to America.

In the wake of the Wall Street Crash, repealing prohibition made sound economic sense, although the introduction of the 21st Amendment ensured that individual states were still able to enforce their alcohol laws.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    The only reason why the government instituted Prohibition was because they could not find a way to tax alcohol. Meanwhile, making alcohol was a way of life as well as a source of needed income in the hardscrapple hills of Appalachia for moonshiners working at their stills.
