Showing posts with the label Bernie Sanders

I love that Bernie Sanders called Kyrsten Sinema a "corporate Democrat." That's a far more accurate description than a "moderate Democrat."

  Dana Bash: "Does she [ Kyrsten Sinema ] have the guts to take on special interests?" Bernie Sanders: "No, she doesn't. She's a corporate Democrat!"

Michael Moore defends Sanders: ‘If we vote on fear, we will lose to Donald Trump’

Michael Moore , acclaimed filmmaker and campaign surrogate for Bernie Sanders, joins MSNBC’s Ari Melber to discuss the 2020 election. Moore criticizes Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Amy Klobuchar for dropping out of the presidential race ahead of Super Tuesday to endorse VP Joe Biden, arguing “the coalescing” of the candidates “is clearly obviously intended to try and stop Bernie's momentum” and not about who “can stop” President “Donald Trump” from reelection. Moore argues the Democratic establishment is “worried about Bernie Sanders policies.” When pressed on Biden’s surge in delegates won after South Carolina, Moore argues “South Carolina is not representative of the United States.” Multiple  MSNBC  personalities took Sen.  Bernie Sanders  to task for his repeated attacks on the political "establishment." MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace went on a rant during the network's Super Tuesday coverage on Sanders' characterization of former Vice President  J

Meghan McCain argued on Bernie-Warren : 'I don't want another misogynist as president'

McCain, meanwhile, insisted that this is a big story because Sanders “hurt Hillary Clinton so much in the last election.” She went on to say that while Sanders has a “good reputation” in Washington and is known as being congenial, “his supporters have a bad reputation—meaning the ‘Bernie bros.’” “It’s actually one of the few things that really connects liberal pundits and conservative female pundits together is just a level of misogyny—look at Twitter, and some of the accounts they do—directed towards specifically women, women in politics, and women in political commentary,” she continued. “I’m sure I’ll have my Twitter lit up on fire because of this, but he has a problem with women.” As the other women at the table agreed with her, McCain added that Sanders has had that problem for a “long time” while noting that “all’s fair in love and war” when it comes to Warren’s team likely dropping this story now. “I don’t want another misogynist as president,” the conservative host procla

FOX NEWS anchors STUNNED that Democrats are ok with felons and terrorists voting…

At a town hall event with Democratic presidential candidates shown on CNN, a student asked Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., if he favors allowing people in prison to vote, including convicted killers like the Boston marathon bomber. Sanders responded: “If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they're going to be punished. … But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people.” CNN’s Don Lemon then asked Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.: “But people who are in – convicted, in prison, like the Boston Marathon bomber, on death row, people who are convicted of sexual assault, they should be able to vote?” Harris said: “I think we should have that conversation.” Oh, great answer! So just days after terrorists murdered over 300 men, women and children in Sri Lanka, the Democrats tackle stuff that truly matters. Can our terrorists here still vote?       Yesterday we reported on one CNN host casting shade on Kamala Harris for s

Bernie Sanders says the right to vote should be extended "even for terrible people"

"This is a democracy and we have got to expand that democracy and I believe every single person does have the right to vote," he said Asked if sex offenders, the Boston marathon bomber, terrorists and murderers should have the right to vote, Sanders said, "Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away and you say, 'Well, that guy committed a terrible crime, not going to let him vote. Well, that person did that. Not going to let that person vote,' you're running down a slippery slope." He went on to say: "So I believe people commit crimes and they paid the price and they have the right to vote. I believe even if they're in jail they're paying their price to society but that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy." You gotta watch the whole clip. Chris Cuomo even asked Bernie in a followup question if he was sure he’d let the Boston Marathon bomber vo

Julián Castro questions Bernie Sanders' skepticism for reparations

Julián Castro said the US should address its "original sin of slavery" and pledged if elected president to "appoint a commission or task force to determine the best way to do that." Whatever you think of the policy of reparations it’s clear that Castro is subtly trying to insinuate that Bernie is racist here, which is one of the main points of attack from the anti-Bernie crowd. I can’t wait to enjoy the Bernie Bro misogynist attacks on Castro on social media!! One final thought – his last statement in the video really undermines his entire argument. He says that if the government pays back citizens when it takes their property, shouldn’t they also pay back who themselves  were  property. But that’s the biggest problem here, right? It is very very difficult to decipher who exactly descended from slaves, and that money isn’t going to the person who suffered slavery directly, but their descendants. So his statement is only persuasive if you don’t stop and think

Bernie Sanders says: “We have differences, you know, Hillary has played a very important role in modern American politics”

Asked if he would go to Hillary Clinton for advice, Bernie Sanders says, “I think not," saying they "have fundamental differences." Sanders adds that he will support whoever the Democratic nominee is. "What's most important is that Trump be defeated."

Bernie Sanders confirms his Medicare for All proposal would eliminate private insurance plans

Bernie Sanders said Monday night that under his progressive “Medicare-for-all” proposal, Americans would not be able to keep existing health insurance coverage from private plans even if they wanted to do so. The Vermont senator told a CNN town hall that health care should be a “human right” and that the U.S. “shamefully” was the only major country on Earth “not to guarantee health care to all people.” He argued that the only “cost-effective” way to give all Americans health insurance would be with a “Medicare-for-all single-payer program.” CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer then pointed to statistics showing half of Americans get their health insurance through their employers and that a recent Gallup poll showed that 70 percent of those who get their insurance from their employers like it. I’m not even sure what his answer means. Bernie admits that the last election wasn’t democratic, yet he still won’t call Maduro a dictator after what he’s done to his people? Yet in 2016 he was

Bernie Sanders ideas from the last presidential race have gone mainstream and he believes socialism means


¡Bernie Sanders dice que está muy orgulloso de trasladar a los demócratas a la izquierda radical!

Bernie Sanders ha entrado ahora en la contienda de los candidatos demócratas de 2020 que compiten por la presidencia. Cuando el anfitrión John Dickerson le preguntó a CBS This Morning sobre cuál sería su característica distintiva, Sanders dijo que sería el hecho de haber cambiado el partido a la izquierda radical: Bernie sugiere que hace tres años las ideas de las que habló al hacer campaña contra Hillary, ideas como "Medicare para todos", elevar el salario mínimo a $ 15 por hora y hacer que las universidades cobren matrícula gratis, fueron consideradas por la gente de su partido como demasiado radicales. Pero tres años después, dice que estas ideas son ahora una parte fundamental de su partido, y está muy orgulloso de haber cambiado el partido a la izquierda socialista radical. ¡Lo siguiente que sabes es que Bernie hará que las líneas de pan sean geniales! ¡Escucha cómo hizo girar la idea de "líneas de pan" en su juventud! Jaja ¡Las líneas de pan so
