    A mural of Sen. Bernie Sanders in Washington, DC, was vandalized with a likeness of Pepe the Frog in a suspected hate crime, police said. The colorful “Bern the System” artwork painted onto a concrete wall beneath Interstate 395 in the 100 block of H Street in the city’s Navy Yard section was defaced sometime between Dec. 15 and Thursday with the cartoon image that’s been adopted as a hateful meme by some alt-right extremists, police said. Cops were called to the site Saturday by one of the artists involved who felt the vandalism might be “motivated by hate or...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) announced Sunday that he agrees with Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) following the Republican’s statement blasting his GOP colleagues, who plan to object to the Electoral College votes in disputed states on January 6. “I don’t often agree with Sen. Mitt Romney,” Sanders began.

    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

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) agreed with CNN host Jake Tapper on Monday when he said Democrats, particularly Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), were the ones who continually blocked meaningful COVID-19 relief bills. "You talked about that 1.8 trillion dollar bill that the White House, Steve Mnuchin, the Treasury Secretary, was working on with the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The Democrats walked away from that bill," Tapper said. "That's right!" Sanders interjected. "Because [Democrats] wanted 2.2 trillion and they walked away from 1.8 trillion. Was that a mistake?" Tapper asked. "That’s what I’m saying! Exactly what I’m saying! Here...
  • VIDEO: Bernie Sanders Sold Out With Laughable Ease

    VIDEONever in the history of American politics has someone sold out his supposed principles so easily as Bernie Sanders. In fact, Sanders sold out so easily that it is laughable. Even most on the left, rather than laughing about it, are outraged at the complete selling out by their erstwhile hero. At least in 2016, Sanders got a beach house in exchange for selling out. This year he didn't even get as much as a tool shed for that beach house. All Bernie got in exchange for selling out was a bunch of completely empty promises by Joe Biden's handlers....
  • Georgia Runoff 'Moderate:' I Welcome Bernie Sanders' Support and Love His Work on Socialized Medicine

    11/30/2020 8:23:51 AM PST · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | November 30, 2020 | Guy Benson
    We already knew that Bernie Sanders is raising money for the Georgia Senate battle, with his fellow Socialist AOC explaining why it's so important for Democrats to win those races and win control of the entire federal government -- in order to preclude the need to negotiate with Republicans. What wasn't as clear was whether the relative 'moderate' in the race, Jon Ossoff, would distance himself from the more aggressively radical elements of his party, including his own "running mate," Raphael Warnock. On Sunday, Ossoff rhetorically bear-hugged Sanders, making a particular point of praising the Vermont Senator's work on healthcare...

    Senator Bernie Sanders, in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, claimed “nobody” he knows talks about the need to defund the police. Tapper began by mentioning how Democrats have suggested that pushing progressive policies in the Georgia Senate runoffs could hurt their candidates. He cited House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) who recently said, if “we are going to run on Medicare for All, defund the police, socialized medicine, we’re not going to win.” Sanders sought to change the narrative. “Let’s rephrase that,” he insisted. “Nobody I know who’s running for office talks about defunding the police.” “What we talk...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) said he doesn't know any candidate who supports defunding the police—even though numerous left-wingers have called for slashing police budgets or abolishing police departments altogether. "Nobody I know who's running for office is talking about ‘defunding the police,'" Sanders said in a Sunday CNN interview, referring to candidates who ran in this month's election. "What we're talking about is making police officers accountable." The far-left House Democrats known as "the Squad" and other newly elected progressives, however, have said otherwise. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) argued that slashing $1 billion from the NYPD's budget didn't...
  • Bernie Sanders claims majority of Americans support a ‘far-left agenda’ that includes raising minimum wage to $15 as he says he’d accept a position in President-elect Joe Biden’s cabinet

    Sen. Bernie Sanders claimed that Americans widely embrace a 'far-left agenda,' noting support for increasing the minimum wage and expanded healthcare. The Vermont lawmaker made the remarks to CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday during an appearance on State of the Union, in which he also confessed that he'd be willing to join the Biden-Harris administration. While speaking about implementing President-elect Joe Biden's progressive policies, Sanders recalled how their two teams met before the election to determine key issues.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) spoke to the far-left members of the “Squad” in a virtual roundtable discussion on Friday, emphasizing that electing Joe Biden (D) would not be the “end-all” but only the “beginning” of their plans to push their radical agenda, ultimately making Biden the “most progressive president since FDR.” Sanders previewed his vision for the Democrat Party under a Biden presidency with four members of the “Squad” — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). “But we understand that electing Biden is not the end-all. It is the beginning,” the Vermont...

    This wasn't a memorial by the actual synagogue that was shot up. Instead Bend the Arc, a toxic leftist group backed by Soros' son, tried to hijack the memorialization of the mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue by an alt-righter to push an anti-Israel and anti-Jewish agenda. And who better to invite to that kind of circus than Senator Bernie Sanders. Sanders delivered, bashing Israel, and insisting that the shooting of 11 Jews wasn't really about Jews, but about "multiracial democracy" and "immigrants, people of color, LGBTQ people". Then he shifted over to insisting, "All over the world...

    Bernie Sanders, the independent senator from Vermont, criticized the Democratic Party on Thursday, claiming it has become a "party of coastal elites." Sanders made the comments while appearing on Late Night With Seth Myers. The host acknowledged that the Democratic Party has gotten away from America's working class over the years, to which Sanders nodded his head in agreement. If Democratic nominee Joe Biden wins the November 3 election, Myers then asked, what should Biden do to "bring the Democratic Party back to serving the working people in this country?" "I think it is fair to say that in many...

    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...

    Opinion A 19-year-old man with a van full of guns and explosives was arrested in North Carolina after he made threats online and contemplated assassinating Joe Biden, according to court documents obtained by The Daily Beast. Court docs say Alexander Treisman left this van at a Kannapolis Fifth Third Bank. In it police discovered a bunch of guns, explosive material and $509K. Investigators later discovered his obsession with mass shootings, terrorism and a post whether to “kill Joe Biden.” Around 11 a.m. on May 28, the Kannapolis Police Department was asked to tow an abandoned van from the parking lot...

    Treisman is not a Trumper, but one of the Left, a supporter of Bernie Sanders. The HuffPo, like NPR, doesn’t bother to inform its readers about this at all. Buried in the fifteenth paragraph of the Washington Post story on Treisman is the salient fact that this psychopath himself explained that he wanted to kill Biden in order to “save bernie [sic].” Treisman wrote on the Internet platform iFunny: “If anything I have to save bernie.” Then he wondered on the same platform: “should I kill joe biden?” But most of those who are imagining a MAGA hat on Treisman...

    Going back to (at least) the technocratic and ambitious FDR, American Democrats have believed that federal government eggheads are best suited to manage most things, including mundane things like ensuring healthcare or housing, for everyone. But as a rule, Democrats have always had a very nuanced way of presenting such policies to the American people. In other words, socialists in America have been most successful when they don’t tell Americans that what’s being offered to them is socialism. The old guard of the Democrat party, which Joe Biden represents, has long understood that. The radical Bernie Sanders wing of the...

    Some 90% of all U.S. wells are now hydraulically fractured. Fracked wells in shale formations open up vast supplies of oil, natural gas and petroleum liquids that previously were locked up and inaccessible. Fracking conventional wells expands and prolongs production, leaving less energy in the ground. Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, AOC, the Democrat Party and U.S. environmentalists are determined to make climate change, the Green New Deal, and replacing fossil fuels with wind, solar, battery and biofuel power the centerpiece of their foreign and domestic policies. They would ban fracking outright – or price and restrict it out of existence...

    Axios ^ | 10/25/20
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday that she believes it's "extremely important" that Joe Biden offer Sen. Bernie Sanders and other progressive leaders Cabinet positions if he's elected president. The big picture: Ocasio-Cortez was pressed repeatedly on policy differences between her and the more moderate Biden, including her opposition to fracking and support for Medicare for All. She responded that it would be a "privilege" and a "luxury" to be able to lobby a Biden administration on progressive issues, insisting that the focus right now should be on winning the White House. What she's...
