    Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Monday to CBS News that Israel did not have a right “to kill 12,000 people in six, seven weeks” in response to the October 7 terror attack. Sanders said, “Well, this was how I respond. Look, Israel was attacked in an absolutely horrific way by Hamas, 1,300 innocent people were slaughtered. Israel has a right to defend itself, but what Israel does not have a right to do, in my view, is to kill 12,000 people in six, seven weeks, two-thirds of whom are women and children. That they don’t have right to do, that’s...

    Trumpenfreude, which I believe is a word that Don Surber coined, happens when we get a warm glow learning about people who struck out at Trump or those close to him and, instead, managed to destroy themselves. While we should feel guilty about regular schadenfreude (e.g., delighting in other people’s misery), Trumpenfreude is something to be celebrated. The latest, somewhat delayed, comeuppance for a Trump hater is The Red Hen, the restaurant that, in 2018, proudly ejected Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family in the middle of their meal. SNIP Moreover, a whole lot of Americans who support strong borders,...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) called for a “significant, extended humanitarian pause” in Gaza that can build upon Israel’s recent deal with Hamas to pause fighting for a few days and afford some hostages their freedom. “There must also be a significant, extended humanitarian pause so that badly needed aid — food, water, medicine and fuel — can get into Gaza and save lives,” Sanders wrote in an op-ed on Wednesday for the New York Times. “If Wednesday morning’s deal is honored, it is a promising first step that we can build upon, and hopefully work to extend the pause.”

    'Telling 2/3 of the local population' they are unwelcome is not the best business strategy.. Apparently telling two-thirds of the local population they are not welcome at your business is "not the best business decision," suggests a report at National File about the closure of the "Commie Cluck" restaurant. The report noted that Lexington, Virginia, facility actually was named The Red Hen, and it became infamous in a moment for a decision back in the day to eject from the premises then-Trump Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family. Because she's Republican. ... The press secretary's family was ejected...

    Independent 2024 presidential candidate Cornel West criticized Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for not calling for a cease-fire in the ongoing war between Israel and the militant Palestinian group Hamas. “You say, ‘Brother Bernie, man, this is reaching the point where it’s getting pathetic now, man,’” West said in an interview with Status Coup News on Wednesday. “If the pause is the best you can come up with given this situation, then this is getting pretty pathetic.”

    Like many Americans, House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La) is living paycheck-to-paycheck. He has no appreciable savings, no stock portfolio, no vacation homes. Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md) wondered if "his precarious financial situation may be a sign that he lacks the savvy we expect from a person in leadership. Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) has a substantial investment portfolio. Former presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) has three homes. President Biden has amassed tens of millions of dollars of personal wealth during his 50 years of public service. I can't help but think that Johnson may not be smart enough...

The institute was established by Sanders' wife, Jane, and his stepson, David Driscoll, six years ago as a think tank to elevate progressive mouthpieces. However, the group has appeared to perform very little work while paying Driscoll six figures worth of compensation. ... "The facts present in this case and the family ties involved certainly raise legitimate concern," Kendra Arnold, executive director of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, previously told Fox News Digital.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) condemned Israel's vow to blockade Gaza until the hostages taken in Hamas' terror attack are freed, calling it "a war crime. Targeting civilians is a violation of the Geneva Conventions of 1949. I know that the Hamas attack targeted unarmed men, women, and children, but since when do two wrongs make a right?" Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich) condemned Israel's "cruel occupation of Palestine for the massacre of unarmed Jews. The juxtaposition of prosperity on one side of the wall between Israel and Gaza and poverty on the other is dehumanizing. It is not surprising that Palestine's...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Thursday joined a group of millionaires in their call for Group of 20 (G20) nations to tax the ultrarich. In an open letter to G20 heads of state, Sanders, along with more than 300 millionaires, economists and politicians, called on the world’s largest economies to enact new tax regimes — at both national and international levels — that will prevent the “ultra-rich” from being able to “avoid paying their dues.”

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday touted President Biden’s accomplishments and stressed his confidence in the president’s ability to win reelection, as long as he runs on a strong progressive platform. In an interview on CBS News’s “Face the Nation,” Sanders stressed what he saw as the importance of running on a “strong” and “progressive agenda” and said if Democrats do so, it could guarantee that wing of the party will back Biden. Sanders touted raising Social Security benefits, expanding Medicare and dealing with student debt as areas of priorities for his wing of the party. “If we come up...

    Longtime progressive champion Sen. Bernie Sanders returns to the New Hampshire on Saturday, a trip that’s sure to generate plenty of political buzz ahead of next year’s presidential primaries. Sanders will deliver a speech entitled “The Agenda America Needs” at Saint Anselm College’s New Hampshire Institute of Politics that a release from the populist independent senator highlighted will “lay out a concrete agenda which speaks to the needs of a long-neglected working class.” *** “The American people are increasingly disgusted at the growing levels of income and wealth inequality in our country and the rampant corporate greed we are seeing.”...

    FIRST ON FOX: Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders quietly funneled $200,000 from his campaign's coffers to his wife's nonprofit institute, which appears to do very little work and pays six figures' worth of compensation to her son, Fox News Digital has found. The independent senator's committee cut two $100,000 checks to the Sanders Institute for reported charitable contributions in January and March, its Federal Election Commission records show. The expenditures are the largest from the Sanders campaign to any entity this election cycle. The senator's wife, Jane O'Meara Sanders, and stepson, David Driscoll, co-established the Sanders Institute in 2017 to act...

    A group of left-wing senators led by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., are demanding that the Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecute the fossil fuel industry over its alleged climate disinformation campaign. In a letter Monday to Attorney General Merrick Garland, the Senate coalition - joined also by Sens. Ed Markey, D-Mass., Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. - argued fossil fuel companies have conducted a "longstanding and carefully coordinated campaign" to mislead Americans about the risks posed by global warming and "discredit climate science" in pursuit of profits. If the DOJ were to pursue such a case again the fossil...

    Things are reportedly growing tense between Donald Trump and his former press secretary, Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders (R), who is apparently drawing the ire of Trump’s camp for her neutrality in the 2024 presidential primary. Sanders had told Trump’s campaign that she wouldn’t be making an endorsement until after her first legislative session, two sources familiar with the discussions told Axios. But that session ended in May, and with still no endorsement from Sanders, Trump is reportedly growing increasingly irate. In March, Trump said that he “never asked” Sanders for an endorsement, but “nobody has done more for her...

    A 24-year-old transgender democratic socialist announced her bid to unseat a Queens assemblyman accused of sexual abuse and become Albany’s first non-binary lawmaker. Émilia Decaudin, who is a member of New York’s Democratic Committee, said Tuesday she would run against Assembly member Juan Ardila, who has resisted calls from party leaders to resign over accusations of sexual misconduct. If Ardila finishes his term, Decaudin would not face off against him at the ballot box until next year’s primary election. The self-described “socialist organizer” and “transgender rights advocate” said in a press release she would work to make Assembly District 37...

    WASHINGTON—Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.), a former Louisiana sheriff, physically removed a protester who crossed into a Republican news conference on May 17 and approached Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) in a way Higgins described as “threatening.” The news conference, during which Higgins, Boebert, Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.), Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), and others expressed their opposition to ongoing treaty negotiations with the World Health Organization, was interrupted when a left-wing protester began heckling members of Congress. After the protester crossed into the news conference, Higgins removed him. The conference was in the House Triangle, one of the most popular news conference...

    One of the greatest betrayals in our history happened while America slept.. When Biden met with Lula da Silva, the founder of the Marxist Brazil’s Workers’ Party and a convicted criminal, it was a victory lap for both socialists. Lula da Silva, Brazil’s former leader, had survived his bribery conviction and rigged an election that overthrew Jair Bolsonaro: his conservative patriotic predecessor. Biden had survived his own trial by fire during the midterms which locked down the 2024 Democrat nomination. Lula also met with fellow Marxists: Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. Biden and Lula talked of “democracy” and “fighting...

    WASHINGTON–Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) introduced a bill on May 4 to raise the federal minimum wage to $17 per hour. The proposal, which is more than double the current rate of $7.25, was unveiled to the cheers of various labor leaders outside Capitol Hill. “It is time to pass a new livable wage,” Sanders said. He was joined by AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler, who said the increase would not burden large corporations, citing a leaked McDonald’s earnings call wherein the CEO says the company would do “just fine” under a $15 minimum wage. Last December, McDonald’s opened its first largely...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said in an interview late this week that the reason Democrats are not going to primary 80-year-old President Joe Biden is because of right-wing extremism. The socialist senator made the remarks during an interview with Chris Wallace on CNN’s “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace.” “Why is it that not a single leading Democrat is willing to contest that nomination in the primaries” Wallace asked. “Why do you think that is?” “I suspect that it has to do with a fear of the growth of right-wing extremism in this country, and that is the Republican Party over...
