Bernie Sanders national surrogate American Zahr called for his supporters to “stop condemning” anti-semitism and terrorism amidst violence in Israel and Gaza.
Global Times, a Chinese Communist Party-run media outlet, insisted that Democratic candidate Joe Biden winning the presidency would be “good news” for China, as the former veep “represents the US liberal pro-establishment elites” and is more “acceptable” and “reasonable” than President Trump. The article, “For China, Biden More Predictable Than Trump, Sanders: Experts,” ran in the state-funded and controlled Global Times, a mouthpiece for the views of the Chinese Communist Party. The article appeared to confirm the findings of a recent U.S. National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) report concluding the Chinese Communist Party “prefers” Biden over President Trump in
Michael Bloomberg spent $1.2 billion on his four-month presidential campaign. Bloomberg suspended operations on March 4th, after which he promptly endorsed Joe Biden. Some claimed this was his intention all along. Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich characterized the endorsement as follows: “The fact that Bloomberg has thrown his support to Biden should remove any lingering doubts about where the big money is going and what the Democratic establishment wants. And what it doesn’t want – a wealth tax, Medicare for All, and a Green New Deal.” The fact that Bloomberg has thrown his support to Biden should remove any lingering
What an anti-climax! A race that began with roughly two dozen candidates – gripping the news cycle for well over a year – ended with a whimper as the nation remains laser-focused on the coronavirus crisis. Senator Bernie Sanders announced the suspension of his campaign in a video message to supporters Wednesday. The story barely registered on the websites of major news outlets. It was scantly covered on television. The race really began the moment Donald Trump won the presidency in the early hours of November 9, 2016. It began formally in January 2019 as major candidates began entering the
The American Israel Public Affairs Committee announced Friday evening that two of its annual, Washington, D.C., conference attendees from New York tested positive for the coronavirus. “We have confirmed that at least two Policy Conference attendees from New York have tested positive for the coronavirus,” AIPAC said in a letter sent to everyone who attended. Bernie Sanders supporters online wasted no time in mocking the pro-Israel group for the serious healthcare threat posed to their bipartisan conference attendees. “Justice is served,” wrote one, while others simply laughed or wrote, “lol”. Anti-Biden, pro-Bernie accounts such as the one below offered up
Senator Bernie Sanders dismisses 70 years of persecution, misery, death, and political authoritarianism in the island nation of Cuba. I was reminded of the old trope which first appeared many years ago in an issue of The New Yorker: “Other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?” Senator Sanders – the Democratic Party front-runner – uttered the following in a recent 60 Minutes interview: “When Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing, even though Fidel Castro did it?” It should be an unequivocal “Yes” to the
Socialism is no longer relegated to the fringe of the Democratic Party, even according to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. The tag-team responsible for the failed impeachment inquiry announced the party would “strongly unite” behind a socialist candidate in a joint press conference. A reporter asked the pair: “Are you comfortable with a so-called Democratic socialist, as he calls himself, on the top of your ticket?” Schumer responds: “Primaries are primaries, and there are always lots of ‘Sturm und Drang.’ You will see in a few months, Democrats will be strongly united together and we will
