FROM THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER: In the doc, you’re brutally honest on Sanders: “He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.” That assessment still hold? Yes, it does. If he gets the nomination, will you endorse and campaign for him? I’m not going to go there yet. We’re still in a very vigorous primary season. I will say, however, that it’s not only him,
Bernie Sanders has given ‘tear down this wall’ a whole new meaning. The 2020 Presidential candidate remarked during the VICE News Brown & Black Democrat Presidential Forum that he would “look at” taking down down existing border wall. The interviewer asks: “You said the wall is symbolic and represents […] , so wouldn’t it be proper to tear that symbol down in order to achieve that?” Sanders responds: “It may be, but you know, it’s how much is it going to cost to tear it down. Should you do that, tear it down? I don’t know. Maybe the answer is
The New York Times‘ endorsement for the Democratic Primary is historic. It shuns the political class as we’ve known it, and tacks to the hard left on a number of policy issues. This is the most important newspaper on the establishment-left giving two cheers for socialism. Conservatives don’t typically care about newspaper endorsements. Mostly because we rarely ever get them. But for the left the endorsement of the New York Times is the holy grail of campaign hat-tips. In endorsing two candidates, the Gray Lady has admitted there is not one clear stand out in the Democratic field. In endorsing two
Investigative reporting unit Project Veritas has released a bombshell video of Bernie Sanders campaign operatives demanding "gulags" in the United States and threatening that "cities [will] burn" if President Trump is re-elected.
About this time last year, The National Pulse ran a series previewing the 2020 Democrat presidential primaries. We looked at the favorites, the middle-tier underdogs, the long shots, and the wild cards. At the time, there were only two minor candidates in the race and plenty of speculation about who would enter. Now it’s 2020 and there’s exactly one month to go until the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses. A potential field of dozens has been whittled down to a handful of front runners and some outsiders scrambling to keep up. DNC rules requiring candidates to reach certain polling thresholds and fundraising targets to qualify for
Last week, Senator Steve Daines (R-Mont.) introduced a resolution condemning socialism to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Its full title is “A resolution expressing the sense of the Senate that socialism poses a significant threat to freedom, liberty, and economic prosperity.” Senator Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) failed 2016 campaign in many ways put socialism back on the map in the U.S. The self-avowed, lifelong Marxist brushed up the once rightly maligned term with the label “democratic,” and was able to gain a substantial following from progressive Democrats. Following his loss, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which seeks the abolition of private business,
One of the more awkward moments to emerge from the first 2020 Democratic presidential debates occurred when Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) attempted to walk back her support for banning every single private health insurance plan in America. During the debates, Democrats were given the mother of all lay-up questions when moderators asked candidates to raise their hand if they support banning private health insurance — translation: do you support kicking every single American who gets health insurance through their employer off their plan, no matter how much they like it? Even in a Democrat field economically illiterate enough to promote
Recently, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) unveiled a proposal that would cap credit card interest rates at 15 percent. As you probably surmised, enacting a proposal like this into law would be the economic equivalent of bombing the U.S. credit market. Heck, I have a cash-back credit card in my wallet right now with an APR of 19 percent. It’s very possible you have a similar one too. If so, you may want to take note of which 2020 Democratic presidential candidates would quite literally ban it. In short, enacting price controls on credit card interest
