    HAVANA—One of America's richest socialists, Bernie Sanders, arrived in Havana today after learning there was an uprising against the Communist regime. While many have been voicing their support for the protesters fighting for freedom, Sanders instead tried to quell the protests, informing the demonstrators that they have some of the best healthcare, housing, and other social programs in the world. "Please disperse! You have excellent healthcare and housing programs!" Sanders cried through a megaphone in an attempt to calm things down. "Not everything was bad about the Communist revolution. Fidel Castro, OK, he wasn't perfect, but there were very good...

Madoff died at the Federal Medical Center in Butner, North Carolina, apparently from natural causes, the person said. The person was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity.
  • Biden tax hike could hit people earning $200K, White House clarifies

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday clarified that President Biden’s proposed tax hike would apply to people who earn $200,000 per year if they are married to someone who makes the amount. Psaki said at her daily press briefing that the proposed $400,000 threshold for tax increases applies to “families” rather than individuals. The clarification significantly lowers the tax-hike threshold announced by Biden in an ABC News interview that aired Wednesday. Biden’s interview statement appeared to indicate the cutoff would be $400,000 in individual income. “Yes, anybody making more than $400,000 will see a small to a significant...

    The campaign to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom has collected 1,950,000 signatures, Katy Grimes of the California Globe reports, far more than the 1.4 million signatures needed to qualify the recall for the ballot. A full 1.6 million signatures were collected entirely by volunteers, and according to organizer Orrin Heatlie, 31.5 percent of the signers were “other than Republicans.” As the recall effort surges, Democrats turn up the volume against it. “Right-wing Republicans in CA are trying to recall Gavin Newsom for the crime of telling people to wear masks and for listening to scientists during COVID,” tweeted Sen....

    President-elect Joe Biden has yet to appoint any prominent supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to his incoming administration in the month and-a-half since the November 3 presidential election. The list of his twenty or so hires, both for Senate-confirmed and White House staff roles, includes several long-time aides, many former Obama administration officials

    In a speech about the dangers of bigotry at a memorial for the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, Bernie Sanders included Israel in a list of countries where he claims authoritarianism is rising. Sanders, the democratic socialist Vermont senator, was the keynote speaker at a virtual memorial event hosted by Bend The Arc, a left-wing Jewish advocacy group. The event, held a day after the two-year anniversary of the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh in which 11 Jews were killed, centered on warning of the dangerous effects of white supremacy and xenophobia. Sanders spoke about how relatives of his were murdered in...

    So what's Bernie Sanders up to these days, now that the Democratic Party has gotten rid of him a second time? Backseat-driving for Joe Biden, it seems, murmuring to people who are somehow all leaking to the same reporter at the Washington Post that Joe is blowing it.
  • Bernie's Brilliant Idea for Quelling Riots Is Nothing Shy of Facepalm Worthy

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT), the progressives' ultimate icon, on Tuesday made the ridiculous suggestion that police officers should be banned from using tear gas, pepper spray or rubber bullets as a means of quelling riots. His proclamation comes as violent riots are taking place in Kenosha, Wisconsin after Jacob Blake, a black man, was shot seven times by police officers. Rioters have burned down businesses, looted others and even beat an elderly man for attempting to defend his business. One rioter pulled a gun on a reporter simply doing his job. The right-wing extremist group known as the Boogaloos shot...

    A Democratic Party meeting that leaders hoped would project unity weeks ahead of the national convention instead broke out into a behind-the-scenes feud over corporate money in politics. At a virtual gathering of a key committee for the Democratic National Convention, Bernie Sanders-allied members said Joe Biden appointees called them “children” and made other rude comments in a breakout room where they were talking privately. The argument served as a reminder of the tensions that are still simmering below the surface between moderate and progressives as the party seeks a united front against President Donald Trump. It also shows the...

    Fox News ^ | June 09 2020 | Paul Steinhauser, Patrick Ward
    Sen. Bernie Sanders is making clear that he doesn’t support defunding or abolishing police departments – but instead wants more training and better pay for police officers as part of his push for criminal justice reform. In an interview with The New Yorker magazine, the progressive independent lawmaker from Vermont said “do I think we should not have police departments in America? No, I don’t. There’s no city in the world that does not have police departments.” But Sanders – who in April ended his second straight bid for the Democratic presidential nomination – emphasized that he’s calling for “for...

    Bernie Sanders’ former press secretary mocked Joe Biden on Monday, calling him “king of the Black people” and asking why he hasn’t “put an end” to riots. “The way the press talked about him, you’d think one statement from Biden, king of the Black people, could put an end to all this,” Briahna Gray on Twitter. “Wonder why it hasn’t worked.” Gray has repeatedly lambasted Biden since Sanders suspended his campaign. She called sexual assault allegations against the presumptive Democratic nominee “credible” and said the media has never focused on his “vulnerabilities.”

    Former Bernie Sanders campaign co-chair Nina Turner on Friday blasted Joe Biden over the comments -- which he later walked back -- about black voters choosing between him and President Trump in November's election. Earlier in the day, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee raised eyebrows during an interview with Charlamagne tha God on the radio show "The Breakfast Club" as he defended his record with the black community. “I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden said. Turner offered a blistering response to the progressive media outlet...

    Nina Turner, former co-chair for the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., wants progressives “go crazy” and turn up the heat on the Democratic Party and maybe mimic how the Tea Party previously defied Republicans. “What I would love to see the progressive movement do — from the progressive members of the House of Representatives and progressive members who may be in the Senate — is to go crazy,” she said during an interview published on Thursday. Turner told Jordan Chariton, CEO of the liberal outlet Status Coup, that Democrats might want to “take a page out of the...

    Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who is threatening to defeat Joe Biden in the 2020 Democratic primary, has been offered an exorbitant advance in a book deal that puts to shame the meager $575,000 vacation home he had bought after conceding to Hillary Clinton in 2016, sources say. Tentatively titled Das Krapital, the book is going to be a compilation of inspiring speeches that candidate Sanders had delivered in 2016 when he ran against Clinton, and then in 2020 while running against Biden. Senator Sanders's speeches have been, in turn, inspired by quotes from the classics of Marxism-Leninism that had shaped...

    The announcement by Bernie Sanders that he is no longer campaigning for the Democrat presidential nomination has caused a wave of very depressed reactions from his supporters. Many of these reactions, as you can see in this video, are quite funny. The only person not depressed is the last guy who sees Sanders ending his campaign as a great opportunity to push for Communist revolution.
