    Asian Americans in San Francisco are leading the campaign to recall the city’s far-left District Attorney Chesa Boudin on June 7.The year 2022 may go down as one of the most transformative years in San Francisco’s history. After firing three leftist school board members with an overwhelming majority in a recall election in February, Asian Americans in San Francisco, fed up with rising violent crimes in the city, have become the driving force to recall the city’s woke District Attorney Chesa Boudin on June 7. Boudin was elected district attorney of San Francisco in November 2019. According to a New...
  • Senator Bernie Sanders, 80, has not ruled out running for President AGAIN in 2024 if Biden, 79, is not on the Democratic ticket

    The 80-year-old Sen. Bernie Sanders has not ruled out running for president in 2024, should President Joe Biden not seek re-election. The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Sanders' 2020 Campaign Manager Faiz Shakir wrote a memo telling allies that the Vermont progressive would consider a third bid for the White House. 'In the event of an open 2024 Democratic presidential primary, Sen. Sanders has not ruled out another run for president, so we advise that you answer any questions about 2024 with that in mind,' Shakir wrote. The 79-year-old Biden has long said he'll run for re-election - though recent...

    With Joe Biden flailing about in an utterly failed presidency, his poll numbers moving ever lower even as he tells everyone he's running for re-election, it's pretty obvious that he's not going to cut it.This seems to be why Bernie Sanders, two-time failed socialist Democrat presidential candidate, looks as though he's going to try to make third time a charm.According to Breitbart News:A leaked memo from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) reveals the socialist is interested in another presidential bid.After losing in two Democrat primaries, one in 2016 to Hillary Clinton and another in 2020 to Joe Biden, Sanders "has not...

With a month to the... primary, Mr. Fetterman claims a significant fundraising advantage over Mr. Lamb and a substantial lead in the polls... The Lamb formula is a savvy combination of support for key party priorities and independence on issues that resonate with centrist Pennsylvanians. He’s pro-choice, favors Build Back Better and a federal voting takeover, and has even called for getting rid of the filibuster. At the same time, he’s in favor of fracking... has voted for more border security, and... voted for...

    Bernie Sanders is the founder of the Progressive Caucus and most popular figure in the Democrat Party. He is also the Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, and therefore a key player in determining how Washington decides to spend taxpayers’ dollars. Bernie is also a lifetime fan of Communist regimes and apologist for their totalitarian practices – and atrocities. He supported Iran’s Islamo-fascist regime in 1979 when it made hostages of 52 American diplomats and embassy workers, held them for 444 days, and chanted “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” – repeating the threats through time. As an American...

    A majority of Americans believe that oil companies, in addition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, should be blamed for the recent spike in oil and gas prices, according to an ABC News poll. The poll found that 71 percent of those surveyed blame Putin for the spike in gas prices amid his country’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine while 68 percent said they blame oil and gas companies for the recent high gas prices.
  • Bernie is Now 50/50 to Win Nomination as Biden’s Chances Crater: Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) has roughly a 50/50 shot at winning the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination — more than double the probability of his nearest competitor — according to Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight. A forecast from FiveThirtyEight places Sanders’ odds at “1 in 2,” with former Vice President Joe Biden’s odds at “1 in 5,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) at “1 in 20,” and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg at “1 in 30.” All other 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, including Mike Bloomberg, Andrew Yang, Tom Steyer, and Tulsi Gabbard, are placed at “1 in 100” odds. Sanders is also currently...

    On Wednesday (March 30, 2022), at a meeting of the U.S. Senate Committee on Budget, Sanders raised an issue that’s been a regular part of his political platform for many years: wealth distribution. “Anyone who thinks we do not have an oligarchy right here in America is sorely mistaken,” he said. “Today in America, multibillionaires like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson are off taking joy rides on their rocket ships to outer space.” Sanders appeared to be citing the three billionaires’ spaceflight companies: SpaceX, Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic, respectively. All three U.S.-based businesses have played a large part...

    What’s really driving this proposal is not substantive policy considerations, but the senator's deeply ingrained propensity toward class warfare and envy.High gas prices and runaway price inflation more broadly are top-of-mind for many Americans right now. As a result, progressive politicians are feeling the squeeze to explain why the federal government’s money printing and deficit spending aren’t to blame. And if Bernie Sanders’ latest radical proposal is anything to go by, some of them are getting pretty desperate. The Vermont senator just unveiled a proposal for a 95 percent tax—yes, 95 percent!—on business profits above their pre-pandemic levels. This comes...

    Kamala Harris, one step from the presidency, is an unmitigated disaster on all fronts. She's failed at everything she's tried. She's famous for being the boss from hell, unable to keep staff. She's very, very, very unpopular with voters. So surprise, surprise, the political vultures are circling. The latest is a name we haven't seen in a while, none other than socialist Bernie Sanders: According to Politico: Top figures from Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign are privately encouraging Ro Khanna to run for president in 2024 if Joe Biden doesn’t seek a second term, giving the California congressman an important stamp...

    The left-wing group Democratic Socialists of America has been under fire over the weekend after calling for the dissolution of NATO's Western alliance and blaming the United States' 'imperialist expansionism' for Russia's unprovoked attack on Ukraine. DSA reaffirms our call for the US to withdraw from NATO and to end the imperialist expansionism that set the stage for this conflict. 'We call on antiwar activists in the US and across the world to oppose violent escalations, demand a lasting diplomatic solution, and stress the crucial need to accept any and all refugees resulting from this crisis.' The statement ended: 'No...

    For years Democratic Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have targeted Tesla founder Elon Musk with false accusations about his tax burden. Warren has been particularly vicious in recent months and has repeatedly said Musk pays "no taxes." This is a lie. Musk's mother, Maye Musk, is making sure Senators Sanders and Warren know. Maye Musk @mayemusk Elon Musk’s Taxes Were Just About Enough To Cover GM’s Bailout Elon Musk’s 2021 taxes were just about enough to pay back GM’s bailout earlier this century.

    **SNIP** Unusually, resident Joe Biden had to draw those lines with fellow Democrats. Defund the police? Forget about it, Biden said Tuesday night. With crime on the increase around the nation – making for a nervous midterm electorate – the answer is to fund the police, Biden said. He also said very pointedly that he is a capitalist, albeit one who thinks big corporations should “pay their fair share" in taxes. On immigration, Biden called for reform – while also saying that those who "are not legitimately here can be sent back" to their home countries. He also made a...

    Casar will be among the most progressive members of Congress ever to serve from Texas. During his tenure on the City Council, he was best known for supporting cuts to the police department and his fight against the encampment bans that had translated into homeless citizens living in tents in public parks and under Interstate 35 bridges. He had the backing of prominent progressives like U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but also the support of prominent locals like Austin Mayor Steve Adler and former state Sen. Wendy Davis. Rodriguez, seen as his most competitive rival, warned...

    The left-wing group Democratic Socialists of America has been under fire over the weekend after calling for the dissolution of NATO's Western alliance and blaming the United States' 'imperialist expansionism' for Russia's unprovoked attack on Ukraine. The DSA, which boasts high-profile members like New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, released a Saturday night statement condemning Russia's invasion and calling for Vladimir Putin to immediately recall his troops. Immediately after demanding a ceasefire the progressive group also called for an end to 'further intervention' -- even as Kyiv's own top officials have invited Europeans and other global...

    Joe Biden is out of excuses. He never should have had any. He won the 2020 election decisively. He took over the White House while having both houses of Congress in his pocket. He was a veteran of the Hill who, I foolishly presumed, understood not only how things are done in Washington, but how that process has evolved since he first won elected office in 1973. Best of all, he wasn’t Donald Trump. Those are all good things, and Biden’s first 100 days showed him cashing in on all of that political capital. He presided over a comprehensive and...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — With elections in view and Democrats’ headline domestic bill in a rut, Sens. Bernie Sanders and Chuck Schumer have very different takes on how things are going in their chamber. “I know we’re spending the week dealing with assistant secretaries of something or other, and that’s terribly important,” Sanders, the progressive firebrand and Vermont independent, said dryly on Wednesday. The Senate confirmed 15 nominees last week for the Federal Maritime Commission, judgeships and other posts. For some Democrats, it’s time to draw contrasts with Republicans by forcing votes on priorities like helping families afford health care and...

    “The situation has reached a crisis point. And in times of crisis, it is important for federal leaders to show leadership, to urge de-escalation, and to work together to find solutions,” Singh wrote in the letter, a copy of which was shared with Global News. “Solutions are needed not only to the convoy and the resulting blockade, but to the broader situation facing Canadians — a health care system on the brink, health care workers facing burn out, and Canadians who expect a plan on how to get through to the end of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

    He’s the most-liked national political leader in Canada, wears sharply tailored suits, has graced the pages of a men’s fashion magazine and is followed by starstruck fans on social media. And he’s not Justin Trudeau. With Canada heading to the polls after a snap election controversially called by Trudeau, Jagmeet Singh, leader of the progressive New Democratic party (NDP), has quickly emerged as the most affable politician in Canada – and a powerful figure who is unlikely to become prime minister. ...His appeal among voters comes as Trudeau has stumbled in the polls.
