  • Trump: Sanders should run as independent

    POLITICO ^ | April 26, 2016 | NICK GASS
    Suggesting that Bernie Sanders has been treated unfairly by the Democratic Party, Donald Trump on Tuesday said that the Vermont senator should abandon his run for the Democratic nomination and instead seek an independent path to the White House. "Bernie Sanders has been treated terribly by the Democrats — both with delegates & otherwise," Trump tweeted. "He should show them, and run as an Independent!" Sanders and his campaign have indicated that the senator, who was still listed as an independent on his Senate website as early as this month, will continue to be a Democrat in future elections.
  • Pro-Abortion Hillary Clinton: I Want to “Go Further” Left Than Obama

    President Barack Obama has been derisively called the Abortion President by some pro-life advocates for the manner in which he has gone out of his way to promote and fund abortions and the abortion industry. From funding Planned Parenthood to pushing abortions on an international level at the United Nations and in other countries like Kenya, Obama has been the abortion movement’s best friend. But if you think Obama has been bad, Hillary Clinton wants to multiple his pro-abortion efforts. At a campaign rally, the best friend of Planned Parenthood says she wants to “go further” left than Obama. CLINTON:...

    President Barack Obama urged Black Lives Matter activists to work with the leaders of institutions instead of “keeping on yelling at them” at a youth town hall event. Obama made the remarks on Saturday — in London, England, well over 3,000 miles from the nearest American Black Lives Matter protester, according to the Daily Mail. “You can’t just keep on yelling at them and you can’t refuse to meet because that might compromise the purity of your position,” Obama urged his young British audience. “The value of social movements and activism is to get you at the table, get you...

    Hillary Clinton "lost" $6,000,000,000 (six billion dollars) of hard-earned American Taxpayer provided money while she served as The Secretary of State for The United States. We're not talking "lost" like when a ship sinks or an investment declines or your number didn't come up on the roulette wheel. We're talking "lost" like "Gosh, I don't know where that money went." Hillary is now begging us to give her the job of President of The United States. Why wouldn't she? She got away with "losing" $6,000,000,000 of hard-earned American Taxpayer money before. Think of how much money she could "lose" as...
  • The Clintons are using 5 shell companies to save on taxes in Delaware

    (Story from April 16.) The Clintons and their family foundation have at least five shell companies registered to the address 1209 North Orange Street in Wilmington, Delaware — which is also home to some 280,000 other companies who use the location to take advantage of the state's low taxes, limited disclosure requirements, and other business incentives. Two of the five are tied to Bill and Hillary Clinton specifically. One, WJC, LLC, is used by the former president to collect his consulting fees. The other, ZFS Holdings, LLC, was used by the former secretary of state to process her $5.5 million...

    Planned Parenthood abortion business CEO Cecile Richards campaigned for Hillary Clinton over the weekend and said abortion activists should vote for her because pro-life supporters want to “get rid of Planned Parenthood.” Richards and the Clinton campaign have been joined at the hp from the beginning and Planned Parenthood made its first-ever presidential endorsement supporting Clinton. Richards campaigned at Brown University, the very liberal Ivy League school that is her alma mater and, as she always does, falsely equated opposing abortion with opposing health care for women: President of Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards ’80 spoke on campus Friday to advocate...

    On Sunday Ted Cruz and John Kasich joined forces to deny Donald Trump enough delegates to win the Republican nomination. Both of the contenders are coordinating efforts to stop Donald Trump. Neither one can do it separately so they're hoping they’ll be able to do it together. That way they can force a contested convention and rip apart the Republican Party. Tonight former Governor Mike Huckabee weighed in on this new tactic. Cruz, Kasich join forces to stop Trump. I wish they wanted to stop Hillary and much as they did the Republican who is beating both of them.

    Terry McAuliffe, the Virginia governor who was former President Bill Clinton's top fundraiser and Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign chair, is being pushed for vice president, possibly creating an extended Clinton family dynasty in America's two top political offices. A Clinton-McAuliffe pairing would be the most friendly ever and a long road from the usual ticket coalition like the 1980 Reagan-Bush ticket. McAuliffe can serve only one-term as governor and will be a third-year lame duck when the Democratic nominee picks a veep next summer. And being a one-term governor isn't a hurdle to higher office. A former Virginia chief executive,...

    Has anybody noticed how quickly HUD Secretary Julian Castro has FADED as a possible VP pick for Hillary Clinton? Last year he was considered to be the VP-in-waiting but now we are getting a bunch of stories about possible Hillary running mates, and poor Julian is barely mentioned. I think Julian's fade began with a Politico story a few months ago in which Castro was portrayed as a complete lightweight. Perhaps Team Hillary inspected Julian closely and discovered a Beta Male who would wither in debate with a Republican VP pick. I do know his tenure as mayor of San...

    Hillary Clinton is considering selecting another woman as her vice presidential running mate, according to campaign officials. Following her convincing win over her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders in New York last week, she has already begun turning her attention to November's general election. This offers the intriguing possibility of not just the first female party nominee but the prospect of an all-woman ticket. This week, John Podesta, her campaign chairman, told the Boston Globe that women would certainly be on the list of possible vice-presidential candidates: “We’ll start with a broad list and then begin to narrow it. But there...

    On his Real Time show on Friday, HBO comedian Bill Maher referred to the U.S. military as a "mass murder machine" as he recalled that the reason he likes Bernie Sanders so much is because the Vermont socialist is the only presidential candidate who would argue against building a bigger military. A bit earlier, as he discussed with the New Yorker's Lawrence Wright the possibility of Saudi government officials being linked to the 9/11 attacks, Maher also made a crass reference to Tea Party conservatives -- whom he has mocked in the past as "teabaggers" -- by referring to Muslim...

    This month, having lost massively to Hillary Clinton across the Southeast, Sanders commented that the bevy of early Southern primaries “distorts reality.” In other comments soon thereafter, perhaps covering for what was obviously a lapse in political acumen, he clarified that those early states are the most conservative in the country. Not really. And not really. While some segments of the South are undeniably conservative, Dixie is also home to a large and reliably Democratic cohort — African Americans. Many of the most liberal people serving in today’s Congress were elected by Southerners, and especially black Southerners. The reality is...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s effort to close out the Democratic race may be going awry, as a new poll shows she’s in danger of losing California to Sen. Bernie Sanders. According to a new Fox News poll conducted April 18-21, Clinton has the support of 48 percent of likely Democratic primary voters, while Sanders is right behind with 46 percent. That’s the closest margin yet between the two in the state, which awards more delegates to the Democratic National Convention than any other. Clinton holds a substantial delegate lead over Sanders and remains heavily favored to win the...

But Fox, who served as president from 2000 to 2006, has some comparisons for Bernie Sanders that are not much more flattering.

    Blunders on Israel abound in the Bernie Sanders camp. On April 14, Sanders suspended his new national Jewish outreach communicator, Ms. Simone Zimmerman, after just two days on the job. Her sacking followed discovery of her calling Benjamin Netanyahu “an arrogant, deceptive, cynical, manipulative a[**]hole,” accusing him of “sanctioning the murder of over 2,000 people,” and presiding over a “brutal military occupation” of the West Bank (a canard I debunk here). In an April 1 interview with the NY Daily News, Mr. Sanders stated that Israel killed over 10,000 Gazans in the 2014 conflict between Israel and Hamas. He later...

According to recent CBS and NBS/WSJ polls, Clinton holds negative favorability ratings by 23 and 24 point margins, respectively. A progressive said to “get things done” won’t be able to win the White House with such negative national ratings. In contrast, Bernie Sanders is the only leading candidate with positive favorability ratings, and this has nothing to do with Clinton being more “vetted.” Bernie doesn’t need private servers and speaks to millions of people in open forums; Clinton is the antithesis of...

Once Clinton’s motorcade drove through the protest, Sanders’ supporters “danced in the street, stomping on the dollar bills.” One protestor named Howard Gold explained he doesn’t support the...

    Over the weekend, Bernie Sanders supporters staked out Hillary Clinton’s George Clooney-hosted fundraiser in San Francisco and threw actual dollar bills at her motorcade as she drove by. They did so to decry the corrupting force of money in politics, but Clinton’s campaign has actively painted it as a misogynistic attempt to liken her to a “whore.” This narrative likely stems from a comment made by Sanders supporter and prominent healthcare activist Dr. Paul Song at a recent rally. "Medicare-for-all will never happen if we continue to elect corporate Democratic whores who are beholden to big pharma and the private...

Clinton is now viewed unfavorably by 55 percent of the electorate, according to the HuffPost Pollster average, which tracks findings from 42 different polling outfits. Only 40.2 percent of people view her favorably, according to that average. An Associated Press/GfK poll released last week also found 55 percent giving Clinton an unfavorable rating. In the most recent Gallup poll, released late last month, her unfavorable number was 53 percent versus only 42 percent who saw her favorably. Even Democrats acknowledge those findings are a problem. “They’re...

    Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has recently had a spate of anti-Israel comments, and on Sunday he continued the streak as he said US President Barack Obama has not been far enough on the Palestinians' side. Video In an interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC, Sanders was asked about his debate with frontrunner Hillary Clinton last Thursday, in which he attacked Israel for taking "disproportionate" measures in defending itself from Hamas terrorists in 2014 Operation Protective Edge. Stephanopoulos showed a clip from the debate in which Sanders called for the US to take an "evenhanded" approach vis-a-vis Israel...

    A professional education consultant and teacher trainer argued at the White Privilege Conference (WPC) in Philadelphia that great teachers must also be liberal activists, and described in detail her goal for destroying the “white supremacist” nature of modern education. SNIP In Hackman’s telling, virtually everything associated with being a good student in modern education is actually just a tool of racist white supremacy. “The racial narrative of White tends to be like this: Rugged individual, honest, hard-working, disciplined, rigorous, successful,” she said. “And so then, the narrative of U.S. public education: Individual assessments, competition, outcome over process (I care more...

    Typical leftists–they want free stuff, but they don’t want to pay for it. In a poll conducted by Vox and Morning Consult during the first week in April, they found that supporters for Sen. Bernie Sanders unsurprisingly have strong support for things like free college tuition and universal health care. They register at 70+ percent in favor for both initiatives. Then, the question turns to how much are they willing to pay for Sanders' agenda. This is where support dips dramatically, especially when two in three Bernie-ites don’t want to pay more than $1,000 for a single-payer health care system....
  • Millennials’ responsibility: Economic inequality and the American dream

    From Occupy Wall Street to the Bernie Sanders campaign, Americans have embraced recent efforts to shed light on economic inequality. However, the success of economic reform lies in the hands of our generation, a generation CBS News referred to as “narcissistic praise hounds.” To millennials, the threat of terrorism always existed, the Internet always accompanied a research paper, and the Cold War was taught in history class, not lived. We are a generation ‘with the world at our fingertips,’ a generation that religiously watches “Friends” and uses social media multiple times a day. But, do we have access to the...

    Nearly 200 Bernie Sanders supporters gathered last night with pots and pans outside Shervin Pishevar’s star-studded Clinton fundraiser, co-hosted by George and Amal Clooney. The Sanders supporters argued corporate interests were buying Clinton that night – tickets for Pishevar’s dinner started at $33,400 (for a seat at the Fairmont hotel) and went up to $353,400 (for a seat at his house). Most of those in the streets were young, and many were in tech. “Tech workers are workers, no matter how much money they make. The investors are what’s wrong in this city,” said 24-year-old Tom Sliwowski, one of the...

    Amidror says Israel must remove Iran's existential threat by diplomacy if possible, but if not, then by "other means." Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei put a wrinkle in his country’s “charm offensive” on Sunday, saying Israel was an “illegitimate and bastard regime.” His comments, posted on his Twitter account, came just a few days before a second round of talks in Geneva between his nuclear negotiators and the P5+1, made up of the US, Russia, China, Germany, France and Britain. Even before Khamenei’s tweet, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, speaking at the opening of the weekly cabinet meeting, said, Iran...

    The United States said on Thursday that it was against Israeli approval of new Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria. The comments were made hours after it was reported that the Civil Administration has authorized construction of 878 housing units in Judea and Samaria. The units were approved for towns in the Binyamin region, the Jordan Valley, and Gush Etzion. Speaking to reporters, State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki responded when asked about the new construction, "The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued settlement activity and opposes any efforts to legitimize settlement outposts." She added that Washington had...

    BETHLEHEM - US Secretary of State John Kerry urged Israel on Wednesday to limit settlement building, an issue that is weighing on Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. Friction over the talks has risen this past week on the back of Israeli plans, announced in tandem with its release of 26 Palestinian prisoners, for some 3,500 new homes for settlers in the West Bank and east Jerusalem. "Let me emphasize at this point the position of the United States of America on the settlements is that we consider them... to be illegitimate," Kerry said after discussions with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

April 15, 2016 Daniel Greenfield    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. Why won’t Bernie Sanders stop attacking Israel? That’s the question some Jewish supporters are asking as the troubled campaign continues alienating Jews while pandering to haters of the Jewish State. For the longest time it was all but impossible to get Bernie to even admit he was Jewish. His campaign conducted no outreach to Jewish groups while aggressively pursuing...
