    Church conversation on 2-23-2020 | 23 February 2020 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    Congratulated a long-time Democrat at church (between class & services) on Bernie Sanders' win in Nevada and his face visibly reddened with boiling anger. He asked, "Are you a Bernie supporter?" I said that I was not. He then asked, "Are you congratulating me? Why are you congratulating me???" He was VISIBLY angry. He knows I am a conservative and made a disparaging comment about it many years ago. I said that I thought that was his party and then apologized. He said, "Apology accepted!" and then stomped off.

    James T. Hodgkinson, the man identified as shooting a Republican member of congress and four others on Wednesday morning, was a small business owner in Illinois who defined himself publicly by his firm support of Bernie Sanders' progressive politics -- and his hatred of conservatives and President Donald Trump. This is based on CNN's review of Hodgkinson's Facebook profiles, public records, and three years of impassioned letters to his local newspaper. "Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It's Time to Destroy Trump & Co." he posted on his personal Facebook page on March 22. "Republicans are the...

    Every one of the icky Democrat party candidates is a wannabe tyrant who is not qualified to be president but that doesn’t mean one of them can’t win. I watched the Democrat primary debate and had very mixed feelings. On the one hand, I thought that this collection of despots, whether socialists (everyone but Mike Bloomberg) or just naturally despotic (Mike Bloomberg) doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in a hot place come the general election. On the other hand, the mere fact that five of them are the ones the party faithful have winnowed down as potential presidents and that...
  • Based On Tax Filings, Bill Kristol’s Been A Democrat For Years

    Kristol, currently editor-at-large of the decidedly anti-Trump media outlet The Bulwark, has been funded from the start of his rebellion by big left-of-center donors like Pierre Omidyar and the Hewlett Foundation. As of 2018, he’s also been backed by a nonprofit connected to a massive network of left-wing groups funding the anti-Trump “Resistance.” Specifically, Kristol’s Bulwark website is run by the 501(c)(3) Defending Democracy Together Institute (DDTI), the sister organization of his 501(c)(4) Defending Democracy Together (DDT), which runs the Never Trump attack group Republicans for the Rule of Law. The Hopewell Fund, which is one of the four main...
  • North Carolina 6th District congressional candidate 'became belligerent' during arrest, police say

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — Rhonda Foxx, a candidate running for North Carolina's 6th District race, said she went to jail for a crime she did not commit. Now, Foxx is using that arrest as part of her campaign to win the Democratic primary on March 3. In a social media post, Foxx claimed she was the victim in the case, but the police narrative tells a different story. Foxx, who is one of five Democratic candidates in the race, posted her version of what happened. She said a neighbor at a Washington, D.C., apartment building assaulted her in September 2018, but...

Federal Election Commissions records also show that Omar’s campaign has paid Tim Mynett’s fundraising company $500,000 in the last year alone. This is NOT the kind of scrutiny Omar wants, since the FBI announced it was investigating criminal allegations against her.

    If we’re different colors we deserve different languages! Right Amy?I see where Amy Klobuchar has changed her mind (aka pandering if you’re a politician) and now does NOT think English should be the national language of the United States. I wonder what she thinks SHOULD be our official language, Yiddish? Navajo? Aramaic?How about Esperanto?  The artificially constructed language created in 1887 by Polish ophthalmologist and linguist L. L. Zamenhof. He had hoped that his language - which he saw as a tool to gather people together through neutral, fair, equitable communication - would lead to a world free of war....

    World Socialist ^ | 2/14/20 | Jacob Crosse, Barry Grey
    Bernie Sanders has won the popular vote in both the New Hampshire and Iowa presidential primary contests in considerable part by presenting himself as an opponent of war. Following the criminal assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani last month, Sanders was the most vocal of the Democratic presidential aspirants in criticizing Trump’s action. His poll numbers have risen in tandem with his stepped-up anti-war rhetoric. He has repeatedly stressed his vote against the 2003 invasion of Iraq, reminding voters in the Iowa presidential debate last month, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that...

    A political tragedy is now unfolding here in America, the self-immolation of the Democratic Party. It is happening. ... Way back in the spring, they decided that this election would amount to an Obama restoration. By beating President Trump we could all return to the world before Trump. Joe Biden was the designated leader of this kind of revolution. It's a little hard to believe, now that we say it out loud -- now that Biden is in danger of finishing fifth on Tuesday in New Hampshire. But that's what they really thought -- that Biden could do it, and...

    On the eve of the New Hampshire primary, how can it be there is still no winner of last week's Iowa caucuses? Final results of the Democratic caucus were released late Sunday, after the Iowa Democratic Party made a series of corrections to a tally initially delayed by several days. That's not the end of the count, however, as Sen. Bernie Sanders and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg exercised their right Monday to ask the state party to take another look at its reporting of the results. Amid those delays in getting the data and after observing irregularities...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Amy Klobuchar says she's "troubled" by the thought that a democratic socialist, Bernie Sanders, could be at the top of the Democratic Party ticket in November and instead believes the key to unseating President Trump is an unifying candidate who has a proven track record. Klobuchar was pressed about being the lone candidate on stage at Friday's Democratic primary debate to raise her hand when moderator George Stephanopoulos asked whether anyone was worried about having a democratic socialist for a presidential nominee. "The question should be why didn't everyone else raise their hand?" the Minnesota senator said....

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. questioned the long-term viability of the candidacies of Senator Bernie Sanders and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg, the two victors in the Iowa caucuses.

    The media is ignoring that Warren beat Joe Biden, the Democratic front-runner, and outperformed her final polling.oming out of the disastrous Iowa caucuses this week, media coverage of the Democratic presidential race turned back the clock almost a year: Suddenly everyone was again focused on “the B-Boys,” as Washington Post columnist Margaret Sullivan lamented last March: Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg and Joe Biden, with a fourth killer B, Mike Bloomberg, replacing the departed Beto O’Rourke. Since Monday night, there’s been breathless coverage of the race between Sanders and Buttigieg to see who, finally, comes out on top in Iowa, plus...
