  • AOC: "Extremely important" that Biden offer Bernie Sanders a Cabinet position

    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...

    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is hopeful to secure a Cabinet position within a potential Joe Biden administration, according to a new report. The report from Politico - a politics-specific news outlet - claims Sanders has an interest in becoming labor secretary if the Democratic nominee wins the upcoming general election. The senator did not confirm or deny the claims, which were first reported Thursday. "Right now I am focused on seeing that Biden is elected president," he told Politico. "That's what my main focus is." NBC5 News has submitted multiple requests to Sanders for comment. If Sanders were to leave...

    Raj and I got married 48 years ago today; we were very young. 1972 was a tumultuous presidential election year as well but I didn’t understand politics well back then. As I said, I was young, foolish and yes, I voted for McGovern because those were the days and times we were living. I’ve not voted for a Democrat since. Let’s hope the incumbent Republican President wins in an even larger landslide than Nixon did then. And God-willing the county’s youth will self-educate in the ensuing years and never waste their votes again. As for me, today is sunny, warm...

    The Plexiglas at Wednesday’s vice-presidential debate made for some strange reflections. Squint hard enough, and you might even have seen the ghostly image of the evening’s third, silent participant: Bernie Sanders. Debates rarely produce clear winners, though they often produce clear wins. Vice President Mike Pence’s victory of the evening was successfully exposing for viewers who is really running today’s Democratic Party. And give him credit. Just three weeks from an election, not one member of the Beltway media, including the debate moderators, has been willing to challenge Joe Biden on his leftward lurch. It was left to Mr. Pence...

    The hired security guard accused of shooting a protester dead during a Denver rally on Saturday was identified by police as Matthew Robert Dolloff. Dolloff, 30, is being held in connection to a first-degree murder investigation in the shooting, the Denver Police Department announced on Sunday. Family members said the victim was Lee Keltner, a military veteran. Officials said Dolloff has not yet been charged. He is being questioned about the shooting, which was captured on camera. The shooting happened at a pro-President Donald Trump rally that was disrupted by people with Black Lives Matter and Antifa, who had planned...

    30-year old Matthew Doloff was booked into the Denver jail system on charges of first-degree murder in the shooting of a Patriot Prayer demonstrator in the city’s Civic Center on Saturday. Doloff appears to have been in the service of a 9NEWS reporter as a private security guard when he shot and fired a conservative demonstrator. He had been involved in a minor scuffle with the thus unidentified victim before shooting him in the head, and the victim only used pepper spray against his assailant when Doloff pointed a gun at him. Doloff owns a farm and is affiliated with...

    Joe Biden pointed out that he beat 'a socialist' - a dig at his former rival Bernie Sanders - as he tried to tried to capture the vote of Florida's swing state voters with Cuban and Venezuelen roots. 'Look, I'm the guy that ran against a socialist,' Biden said at Monday night's NBC News town hall. 'Remember, I got in trouble with the whole campaign, 20-something candidates? Joe Biden was too centrist, too moderate, too straightforward. That was Joe Biden.' Biden's retort came the same day that Sanders was back on the campaign trail for the Biden-Harris ticket, stumping for...

    Democratic presidential nominee former Vice-President Joe Biden rebuffed charges that his proposed policies are "socialist" by pointing out that "I beat the socialist in the primary. After my South Carolina primary win drove all the other candidates from the race it was one-on-one between me and Bernie. I whipped him good." "You know, never once have I read the term socialist or socialism off the teleprompter I use to make my campaign speeches and answer interview questions," the Candidate recalled. "I think the absence of those words pretty definitively proves I'm not a socialist. As for the allegation that I...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) looked to assure nervous Democrats that there are “a number of plans” to deal with a scenario in which President Trump loses the November election but refuses to leave office. Sanders, speaking to TV host Bill Maher Friday night, said it was of tantamount importance that liberals elect Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden but that Democrats will have contingency plans to remove Trump from office if he refuses to go. “The bottom line is, there are things that we have to do now to make sure that Biden wins. And if Trump attempts to stay in...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden attempted to assure voters on Monday that Republican efforts to paint him as a “radical socialist” were inaccurate, but may have inadvertently taken a swipe at his vanquished progressive rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) Biden, who has struggled to make inroads with his party’s left wing, was asked during an interview with a local Fox affiliate in Wisconsin if he was concerned about recent claims President Donald Trump made alleging the Democrat ticket is a “trojan horse” for more radical elements of the progressive movement.

    U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders has privately voiced worries about the way Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has been campaigning as the race heads into its final weeks, according to a report. Sanders, who dropped out of the race in April and immediately endorsed Biden following a hard-fought Democratic primary battle last spring, has said he wishes Biden would focus more on kitchen table issues like higher wages, job growth and health care access in campaign stops rather than criticizing President Trump, the Washington Post reported, citing three sources familiar with his conversations. […] The independent senator from Vermont also believes...

    SENATOR Bernie Sanders' has been expressing concerns over Joe Biden's presidential campaign, the Washington Post has reported, and is urging Biden's team to appeal to liberal voters. According to three people familiar with Sanders' private conservations, Sanders has said Biden is at risk of losing the election if he continues to be too centrist. Biden should talk more about health care, economic plans, and should campaign more alongside individuals who are popular with youths, such as Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sanders has reportedly said. Faiz Shakir, Sanders' campaign manager, released a statement regarding the alleged comments: “Senator Sanders is confident that...

    The Atlantic published a report on Thursday where the publication claimed that Trump “rejected the idea” of visiting Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, not just because of rain, but “he did not believe it important to honor American war dead,” the publication cited four anonymous sources. “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers,” Trump allegedly said, according to the publication. He later reportedly said in another conversation that over 1,800 Marines who died at the Battle of Belleau Wood during World War I were “suckers.” Citing three anonymous sources, the Atlantic reported that Trump...

    In a grim convention speech, Sen. Bernie Sanders said "voters will face a choice between authoritarianism and freedom this November. One of the candidates intends to impose a regime of individualism that will stifle the human dream of collectivism envisioned by Karl Marx. The other candidate offers a pathway to escape this dire fate." "If Donald Trump is reelected Americans will be forced to earn their own livings," Sanders lamented. "Some will be encouraged to embark on a futile quest for success as owners and operators of small businesses. Others will be expected to take jobs producing products that consumers...
