    Former Green Party candidate Jill Stein pushed back against Hillary Clinton after the failed 2016 presidential candidate called her a "Russian asset" this week. In a new interview, Clinton appeared to float a conspiracy theory that the Russians are “grooming” Hawaii congresswoman and Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard to be a third-party candidate in 2020. “I'm not making any predictions, but I think they've got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said, an apparent reference to Gabbard. “She's the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots...

    Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard fired back this afternoon at Hillary Clinton over comments she made suggesting the Hawaii congresswoman and 2020 candidate is being groomed by the Russians. Clinton said in a recent interview, of the Russians, “I think they’ve got their eye somebody who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s a favorite of the Russians.” When asked by NBC News if this was a reference to Gabbard, a Clinton spokesperson responded, “If the nesting doll fits…” Gabbard responded this afternoon, calling Clinton, “the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification...

    After all, it was Joe Biden’s eye that filled with blood on TV just a few weeks ago, and it was Joe Biden’s teeth that came loose during a national debate last month, and it has been Joe Biden taking it easy on the campaign trail, going on vacation, disappearing for days at a time, etc.If Democrats are smart, they will remember the lesson of 2016 when an obviously frail, sickly, and weak Hillary Clinton collapsed into a van at that September 11 memorial event.

    The former U.S. secretary of state appeared Wednesday on "The View" along with her daughter, Chelsea. The Clintons are making the press rounds as they promote a book they co-authored, "The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience." The moment the ladies sat down, they were asked about the big news of the day regarding Senator Sanders receiving two stents during an emergency heart procedure. "Wish him and hope for the best," Hillary said, appearing to show genuine emotion for the health of Sanders.

  • Jeff Bezos would pay $9 billion a year in wealth taxes under Bernie Sanders’ plan

    CNBC ^ | 9/24/19 | Robert Frank
    Sen. Bernie Sanders announces a wealth tax that would hit multibillionaires like Jeff Bezos especially hard. Rival presidential candidate, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, has a plan that would impose a tax of 2% of wealth over $50 million and 3% on wealth over $1 billion. Sanders’ plan starts at a lower wealth level – taxing those worth $32 million at 1% – so his tax would hit about 180,000 families while Warren’s would affect about 75,000 households. The sliding scale of the Sanders plan quickly escalates for wealth over $500 million, which would be taxed at 4%. Here are estimates...

    It is past time for Democrats to deal with the reality that Joe Biden is a sorry leader of a sad sack of presidential candidates. And unless Barack Obama comes to the rescue of his former vice president, Biden, 76, is toast. While 76 is not old, Biden is an old 76. Besides appearing frail, he mumbles and meanders, as old folks are wont to do. It is the way he answered a key question about race at the last candidates’ debate. He sounded more like the late Boston Mayor Tom “ Mumbles” Menino talking about the city’s budget than...

    VIDEO It is almost five months before the first of the Democrat primaries and yet CBS News on Sunday's Face The Nation is already giving us EXACT "projected" delegate counts. Why? The answer is because the DNC is CHEATING Bernie Sanders again. It is obvious that the source for these delegate counts, never before projected this early before the primaries even take place, is the DNC to prepare the public for the notion that Bernie Sanders is way behind on a delegate count that hasn't even happened yet. It is also obvious who the FAVORED candidate of the DNC...

    Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders enlisted the services of far-left activist Linda Sarsour to campaign for him this week as he seeks the Democratic presidential nomination. Sanders tweeted Sarsour’s remarks in a video that went viral Friday night and Saturday morning. Sarsour has come under fire for her harsh criticism of Israel, defense of Sharia Law, and refusal to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. She has also been accused by Jewish organizations of holding anti-Semitic views.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., ripped into President Trump during Wednesday's episode of "The View" and claimed that he was probably the "most dangerous" president in the history of the United States. His comments came after host Joy Behar asked him about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., seemingly preferring a moderate to challenge Trump in 2020. "I love Nancy but she and I disagree on this issue," Sanders said. "I think the way you beat Donald Trump — and I must say that in my view, Donald Trump is the most dangerous president probably in the history of this country." "We...

    “For a hundred years, the white workers of the South were the most exploited white workers in America. They were paid the lowest wages, they endured the worst working conditions, their housing was abysmal, their kids went to the most backward schools, and very few could send their children to college. But what did they have? They were given ‘niggers’ to hate and look down on, ‘niggers’ who couldn’t vote, drink at their water fountains, use the same bathrooms, or sit up front in the buses or movie theaters,” Sanders wrote in the book, a copy of which was reviewed...

    I would never say anything rude about Susan Sarandon, and if I did, I hope 10,000 swords leap from their scabbards to avenge her. But I do wish she would lay off poor Elizabeth Warren, whom the Stepmom star recently dismissed as "someone who used to be Republican" and a tool of Wall Street. This is pretty unfair to the woman who came up with the idea for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau pretty much out of thin air all the way back in 2007. It's also something we should get used to hearing from supporters of Bernie Sanders —...

    Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., told an audience in South Carolina Friday that he is working on legislation that would "eliminate medical debt in this country." Sanders made the remark during a question-and-answer period following a town hall meeting in Florence on "Medicare-for-All." A female attendee explained to Sanders that she doesn't make enough money to qualify for ObamaCare and has a large amount of medical debt not covered by insurance. When the woman asked Sanders if he had a plan for that, the self-described democratic socialist told her: "In another piece of legislation that we're offering, we're...

    Joe Biden was as sure a thing to win the Democratic Party’s nomination to go up against Donald Trump in 2020 as Alabama is to beat Western Carolina later this season. But Biden has fumbled more often than a rookie running back with hands of butter and has opened the floodgates for Crazy (if it’s not his first name it should be) Bernie Sanders’ chances. Kamala Harris has done next to nothing to move up in the polls, and Elizabeth Warren and Beto O’Rourke have less a chance than the Catamounts do in Tuscaloosa on Nov. 23. If there was...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) took aim at fellow presidential candidate Andrew Yang’s (D) proposal for universal basic income, telling Hill.TV that a federal jobs guarantee is preferable because “people want to work.” Yang – who saw a spike in Emerson Polling’s recent survey (4 percent support) and qualified for September’s Democrat presidential debate – has touted his universal basic income plan, promising to give U.S. citizens $1,000 a month. “Americans will work even harder when they get the resources in place to actually get ahead. This is the trickle up economy from our people, families and communities up,” Yang told...

    U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders told a crowd at the Minnesota State Fair on Saturday that there are two reasons he’s running for president: 1) President Donald Trump is “dangerous” and must be defeated and 2) to promote economic equality. “This country cannot continue to have a president who is a pathological liar; who conducts public policy via tweet; who is a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, and a xenophobe and a religious bigot,” he said. This was the first time Sanders, 77, has brought his 2020 Democratic presidential campaign to Minnesota. The Vermont senator spoke Saturday from the Minnesota Public...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Saturday invoked the Holocaust while vowing to go to war against white nationalism and racism if he wins the 2020 presidential election. "I'm Jewish, my family came from Poland. My father's whole family was wiped out by Hitler and his white nationalism," Sanders said while speaking at the Young Leader's Conference in Atlanta. "Too many people have fought over the years, too many people have died against racism to let it resurface and flourish in America." "We will go to war with nationalism and racism in every aspect of our lives," Sanders added, before arguing...

    Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are looking for ways to narrow the gap with Biden, who remains atop primary polls partly because of his standing with older black voters Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren framed their Democratic presidential bids in personal, faith-based terms Saturday before black millennial Christians who could help determine which candidate becomes the leading progressive alternative to former Vice President Joe Biden. Sanders, the Vermont senator whose struggles with black voters helped cost him the 2016 nomination, told the Young Leaders Conference that his family history shapes his approach to President Donald Trump's rhetoric and the rise...
