  • Bernie and Dems brace for superdelegate showdown

    Politico ^ | February 27, 2020 | Sarah Ferris and Marianne Levine
    It’s Bernie Sanders versus the Democratic National Committee again, and as in 2016, many congressional Democrats aren’t taking his side. Sanders has argued that whoever gets the most delegates — even if they fall short of the DNC’s threshold — should be crowned the nominee for president. But House and Senate Democrats, for the most part, insist that the party stick with the rules that were rewritten specifically to address complaints of bias against Sanders in 2016.

    RUSH: You know, I’ve been looking at all this news over the weekend about Crazy Bernie and the Democrats, and there’s people writing columns about, “Oh, my God. The whole Democrat Party has gone socialist.” Really? What was your first clue? I’ve been trying to tell people what the Democrat Party is and how long it’s been that way, and so has Ronaldus Magnus. You go back, look at Ronald Reagan’s radio commentaries that he wrote and delivered, over 300 of them, he’s been warning about Bernie Sanders for I don’t know how many years, 50 or 60 at least....

    Bernie Sanders is another fraud that is coming from the left. A few days ago news broke out that US officials have told Bernie Sanders that Russia is trying to help his campaign 30 days ago, prompting the frontrunner in the Democratic race to strongly condemn any interference. He stayed quiet as always. His communist’s past is nothing new, he spend a lot of time in Moscow and praised socialists and communist doctrines in the past. His base is nothing but far-left protestors that were exposed during recent Project-Veritas videos. What we didn’t know is that he is planning an...
  • The One-sided Study Sanders Says Proves that Medicare for All Is the Answer

    If Medicare for All (MFA) is the answer, then what is the question? It is obviously about how Americans can become more dependent on an exploding and careless federal bureaucracy. At the Democratic debate on Tuesday evening, Bernie Sanders pushed his tried if not true canard that MFA is the solution to America’s health care problems. In support of MFA, the Washington Post published a glowing story about this allegedly definitive research proving Sanders’ claims to be correct. Jeff Bezos’ left-wing paper cited a just-published article in the U.K. medical journal Lancet, by Galvani, Parpia, Foster, Singer and Fitzpatrick (three...

    Democratic presidential front-runner Bernie Sanders likes to market himself as a wise old man who just happens to have clown hair but is right about everything, such as the War in Iraq. Yet his opposition to the Iraq War was dictated not by cool-headed geopolitical calculations, but the lifelong habit of romancing American enemies — as is typical for communism-lovers.The recently surfaced press conference Sanders gave following his return from his honeymoon in Yaroslavl, USSR, is a great example of leftist naïveté about totalitarian regimes. For Bernie to fawn over Soviet culture the way he did indicates a staggering...

    Former Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd Blankfein said he may vote for President Trump over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) if the progressive firebrand wins the party’s 2020 presidential nomination. “I think I might find it harder to vote for Bernie than for Trump,” Blankfein told the Financial Times in an interview published Friday. “The Democrats would be working very hard to find someone who is as divisive as Trump. But with Bernie, they would have succeeded.” Sanders frequently argues that billionaires “should not exist” while millions of Americans struggle to afford basic human needs. Blankfein compared Sanders’s rebuke of billionaires...

    Police say radical activist stole prison blueprints, stashed guns and ammo in facility A former adviser on criminal justice issues to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) was plotting a violent prison escape, stashing guns and ammunition inside a soon-to-be-opened prison, authorities said this week. Nashville police said Wednesday that Alex Friedmann, a prison reform advocate who helped shape the Vermont senator's criminal justice agenda, spent months plotting an escape for inmates of the city's detention center. Sanders worked with Friedmann to develop positions on criminal justice in the lead up to his 2016 presidential campaign—positions Sanders still touts.

    During CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” network anchor Jim Cramer offered his reactions to the Nevada Democrat debate. Host Joe Kernen called 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) “genuine,” but Cramer called into question his socialist views, asking if he is really more of a communist. “Genuine? Is he really a socialist or is he a communist?” Cramer asked. “What is socialist about what he wants? Joe, isn’t he more of a communist?” Kernen replied, “He is. Well, oh no, I’m not saying that, I don’t, but — it’s a fine line, and it’s authoritarianism either way because you just...

    Bernie Sanders (I-VT) used campaign funds to procure media-buying services from a consulting company founded and operated by his wife and her LLC called Sanders and Driscoll, a for-profit company run by Jane, daughter Carina, and son David out of the Sanders family home. As Mayor, Sanders appointed his wife to an unpaid position. Against the city council’s objections, he later put Jane on the payroll at taxpayers’ expense. Jane's role as head of Burlington College, a private school with fewer than 200 students.....her hiring was a function of her marriage to Bernie Sanders — then a member of...

    With a win in New Hampshire, a maybe-win in Iowa last week, and a month-long surge into second place nationally, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is now in strong position to win the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination. It’s been a long road for the curmudgeonly man from Vermont, who spent years toiling on the fringes of official Washington. Of all things, the event that ultimately launched him into the Democratic Party’s mainstream turned out to be a binary 2016 primary contest with Hillary Clinton, a match-up in which the contrast ultimately benefited him more than her. So, here we are, in...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a 2020 White House hopeful, on Sunday dismissed concerns that his status as a self-proclaimed democratic socialist would be a liability in a general election and said President Trump’s description of his ideology as “communist” was inaccurate. “Obviously I am not a communist,” Sanders told host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” in response to a clip of Trump using the designation in a Fox News interview, adding that Trump “maybe doesn’t know the difference.” Sanders also called Trump a “pathological liar” for claiming Sanders was “married in Moscow.” Wallace continued to press Sanders on how...

    en. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday backpedaled on his promise to release comprehensive medical records, saying his doctors have confirmed he’s in “good health.” “You can start releasing medical records ― it never ends,” Sanders told NBC’s “Meet The Press” when asked whether he planned to release additional medical records after having a heart attack in October. “We have released a substantive part of all of our background,” he added. “We have doctors who are cardiologists who are confirming that I am in good health. I am in good health.”

    Washington Examiner ^ | May 30, 2019 | Joseph Simonson
    Bernie Sanders campaigned for the Socialist Workers Party in the 1980 and 1984 presidential campaigns and was investigated by the FBI for his ties to the Marxist group. Sanders has always played down the extent of his involvement with the party, which included radicals who praised the Soviet Union and Cuban communists, and has denied ever being a member. Asked in 1988 about his role as an SWP elector in 1980, he said: "I was asked to put my name on the ballot and I did, that’s true." In fact, his ties to the party are deep and enduring. The...

    During MSNBC’s Friday night post-debate coverage, Hardball host Chris Matthews behaved like a man possessed, hellbent on informing all about the deadly dangers posed by communism and socialism, how concerns during the Cold War were real, and Bernie Sanders might not be looking to just remake America into a socialist country a la Denmark. Something was up early on in the show as he praised Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) for having “had guts to talk about the issue of this campaign,” which “is that word socialism” as “some people” and “younger people like it,” but socialism wasn’t exactly what they...
  • Bernie Sanders in 1972: 'I don't mind people calling me a communist'

    02/08/2020 9:36:23 AM PST · by bryan999 · 12 replies
    President Trump's recent jab at Bernie Sanders, calling him "a communist," was meant as an insult. But the 2020 Democratic front-runner and Vermont senator might not have taken it that way. In 1972, Sanders, then a gubernatorial protest candidate for the socialist Liberty Union Party, visited an alternative high school in Rutland, Vermont, to give his campaign pitch. During a question-and-answer session, Sanders, then 31, brushed off accusations of being a left-wing radical. "I don't mind people coming up and calling me a communist," Sanders said. "At least, they're still alive." On the night of the Super Bowl, Trump said...

    Washington Examiner ^ | January 31, 2020 | Daniel Chaitin
    Whispers among members of the Democratic National Committee suggest there is growing anxiety about the rise of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Roughly half a dozen DNC members have quietly discussed reversing historic reforms that reduced the outsize influence of unpledged delegates, known as superdelegates, before the party picks its nominees for president and vice president this summer, according to Politico. The presidential primary of 2016 left Democrats bitterly divided, as liberal supporters of Sanders asserted superdelegates gave Hillary Clinton an unfair advantage. In August 2018, the DNC passed a measure to block superdelegates, which comprise elected officials and party leaders,...

    Bernie Sanders is a survivor, but can he survive the orchestrated media onslaught that seems determined to bring him down? At 78, Sanders has survived a heart attack, and the loathing of the Democratic Party establishment and its compliant media wing. He survived that recent vicious and shameful CNN takedown accusing him of sexism for allegedly saying a woman couldn't be elected president. Sanders denied it. CNN didn't much care. Now his supporters are being shamed as dangerous and angry by other media and also as tools of President Donald Trump. But guess what? It's all backfiring. Sanders is surging,...

    “In conversations on the sidelines of a DNC executive committee meeting and in telephone calls and texts in recent days, about a half-dozen members have discussed the possibility of a policy reversal to ensure that so-called superdelegates can vote on the first ballot at the party’s national convention,” Politico reported. “Such a move would increase the influence of DNC members, members of Congress and other top party officials, who now must wait until the second ballot to have their say if the convention is contested.” Politico noted that it’s an uphill battle for those who want the rule change, but...

    CNN and the Des Moines Register have scrapped the planned release of a key poll on Saturday, less than two days before the Iowa caucuses after concerns that an apparent coding error left one of the leading contenders out of at least one survey. The media outlets decided to nix a planned live televised release of the survey after a supporter of former Mayor Pete Buttigieg received a call from the pollsters — and Buttigieg’s name was not one of the options offered. The New York Times first reported the network’s decision to cancel the poll’s release. The Des Moines...

    Some Democratic National Committee (DNC) members and supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are venting frustration at DNC Chairman Tom Perez over his initial appointments to the committees that will oversee the rules and party platform at the nominating convention in Milwaukee later this year. Sanders’s allies are incensed by two names in particular: former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), who will co-chair the rules committee, and Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chairman John Podesta, who will have a seat on that committee.
