  • Bernie Sanders Crowds Are Whiter Than Those of Donald Trump (Humor)

    02/13/2016 8:57:49 AM PST · by pinochet · 12 replies
    Editors at a radical magazine that supports Sanders is wringing its hands over the fact that crowds at Bernie Sanders rallies are too white: http://www.counterpunch.org/2015/08/04/bernie-sanders-top-five-race-problems-the-whiteness-of-nominal-socialism/ This is in fact, true. I have seen ads and rallies by Bernie that prove that Bernie's crowds are whiter than those of Donald Trump. But there is something else. The white people at Bernie's rallies are more beautiful than the white people at Trump's rallies, because they are younger whites. Another thing. The whites at Bernie's rallies are a happy and cheerful group of whites, in contrast to the whites at Trumps rallies, who...

    When is the last time you were in Denmark? Or Norway? Or Sweden? If you have had the pleasure of visiting these lovely places you may have noticed something really odd. Nobody there talks the way Bernie Sanders talks. Sanders frequently points to northern European countries, especially Denmark, as examples of how he would like to remake the United States economy - by which he mainly means higher taxes and more social services. But the main difference between the tax systems of the US and Denmark is not high taxes on the rich. It's higher taxes on the middle class....
  • Henry Kissinger's War Crimes Are Central to the Divide Between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders

    The Intercept ^ | Feb. 12 2016 | Dan Froomkin
    The sparring during Thursday's Democratic presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders over whether Henry Kissinger is an elder statesman or a pariah has laid bare a major foreign policy divide within the Democratic Party. Clinton and Sanders stand on opposite sides of that divide. One represents the hawkish Washington foreign policy establishment, which reveres and in some cases actually works for Kissinger. The other represents the marginalized non-interventionists, who can't possibly forgive someone with the blood of millions of brown people on his hands. Kissinger is an amazing and appropriate lens through which to see what's at stake...

    (CNN)Sen. Bernie Sanders touted his record on veterans' issues during Tuesday's debate, citing his position as the former chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs when Congress provided billions of extra dollars to boost healthcare for veterans last year. "We went further in than any time in recent history in improving health care to the men and women of this country who put their lives on the line to defend us," Sanders said Tuesday, referring to $15 billion given to the Department of Veterans Affairs to decrease wait times and reform the troubled agency. Yet some veterans groups and...

    New York Post ^ | 2/9/2016 | Betsy McCaughey
    The conventional wisdom is that Hillary Clinton is the candidate with the honesty problem. But on at least one important issue, Bernie Sanders isn't shooting straight. Sanders falsely claims he's been leading the fight to save veterans from the corruption and deadly medical care delays at the Veterans Affairs Department - a message intended to resonate with New Hampshire's large vet population. The truth is, as chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, Sanders sabotaged VA reform. Sanders' allegiance is to public-sector unions, and to serve them, he betrayed vets. You wouldn't know that from his campaign-trail boasts. The next...

    Youth has always been idealistic: a utopian and egalitarian society is very alluring to them. Trouble is, no matter how much we may dream about unicorns, we can never make them come to life. And the only way to deliver a utopian society is via a state-controlled tyranny that destroys personal liberty. Unfortunately, many young people fail to understand these facts. What's more, the professors in America's liberal arts colleges and universities have for decades fostered a climate that ridicules free-market principles and favors of socialist and wealth distribution doctrines. Bernie Sanders is tapping into this socialist stupidity and...

    New Hampshire voters issued a rebuke to conventional party leaders when they voted by large margins for Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders in Tuesday's primaries. But Sanders is not going to win the Democratic nomination, and it's by no means certain Trump will be the Republican nominee. The results show that Hillary Clinton has a clear but clunky path to the nomination but is a problematic general election candidate. They show that the Republicans have a potential advantage in November but first must get through a problematic nomination process. Consider turnout, which is the one thing pollsters have trouble forecasting....

    Thursday night's Democratic debate on CNN, held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was full of side eyes and shouts between contenders Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

    Let’s pause for a moment and ponder the sheer, breathtaking magnitude of Hillary Clinton’s collapse. In Iowa, she once held a 56-point lead over Bernie Sanders in the polls. She finished in a dead heat, with the Iowa Democratic party, led by a woman whose car reportedly sports an “HRC2016” license plate, brazenly stonewalling an inquiry into numerous voting irregularities. In New Hampshire, her lead over Sanders also peaked at 56 points, and she lost by 22 — a stunning 78-point turnaround. It would be a partial consolation (very partial) if she lost to a young, charismatic firebrand, but she’s...

He would know that the MSM would create such a toxic environment that his candidacy would never have a chance of getting off the ground. And so it is somewhere between amusing and outrageous to hear Mark Halperin claim, as he did on today's With All Due Respect, that the press is "biased against" Hillary Clinton.

    An ideological construct that exploits envy and resentment for political advantage. Throughout this primary season, Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders have both been flogging the “crisis” of “income inequality,” which is “at the center of their campaigns,” according to CNN. Both have scourged the “greed” of the “1%,” called for higher taxes on the “rich,” and promised to expand and multiply government programs to rectify this injustice. Yet like other slogans progressives rely on, the idea of “income inequality” is an ideological construct, a statistical artifact that exploits envy and resentment for political advantage.

(Not that it matters, since they won’t tell you how many people voted anyway.) In any event, Clinton and Sanders were essentially tied. Then we headed over to New Hampshire with its 24 pledged Democrat delegates. Sanders blew Clinton’s doors off there, taking roughly 60% of the votes. So at this point the delegate race should be pretty...

Democrats saw a strong turnout, but their two-person race couldn’t recapture the magic of the 2008 battle between Hillary Clinton and then-candidate Barack Obama — a race that presaged Mr. Obama’s eventual cruise to victory in November.

    Young voters should be very cautious in accepting Bernie Sanders' idea that college should be free.

It is now at $1.3 trillion and is stifling the finances of young people who want to get married, buy a house, buy a car, or pursue any other financial goals. Socialism is a millstone around the necks of America's middle class and poor. Anyone who disagrees with this should look at how the cost of a college education has risen much faster than wages.

Game over. When Sen. Bernie Sanders made noises about running against her, nobody thought he could be the actual Democratic nominee. He was old, he was cranky, and he wasn't even a Democrat. The conventional media wisdom had it that Sanders would be a healthy deterrent to the Clinton tendency to crawl toward the corporatist middle. On NPR, Washington Post columnist E.J.

    Less than three decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, socialism seems to be undergoing something of a revival. A self-professed "democratic socialist" is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, and he is running neck and neck with a party icon. Polls show that more than a quarter of Americans have a favorable opinion of socialism, which might not sound so bad until you learn that that includes 43 percent of those under age 30, and 42 percent of Democrats. Meanwhile, barely half of Americans have a favorable view of capitalism. Democrats, in fact, are as likely to view...

    On Politico.com it shows Sanders and Clinton both getting 13 delegates. How then is this a true win for Sanders other than a popular vote? I don't know which is why I'm asking. Link at source.

    There are already several theories circulating to explain the gap between Sanders and Clinton when it comes to young women. Feminist luminary Gloria Steinem said just last Friday on Bill Maher’s show (then somewhat un-said Sunday) that young women are just going where “the boys” are. Author Jill Fillipovic followed up with a riff on Steinem’s thinking in Cosmopolitan, arguing that, “In this primary, Sanders is the guy stuff. Clinton is the girl stuff.” She argued that young women often feel pressured to make a show of liking cool guy stuff instead of lame girl stuff. Democratic National Committee Chair...

    The results in New Hampshire show a Democratic Party in the state that is deeply ruptured demographically and ideologically -- in a way that happened to very much favor Bernie Sanders on Tuesday night. [Snip] Sanders won two out of every three men, and notably slightly more women than Clinton, according to the most recent exit polls. Sanders won young voters -- those under 30 -- by about 70 percentage points. He won those aged 45 to 64 with a slight majority. He won two-thirds of non-college graduates and a little over half of those with degrees. Sanders won six...

    After the ridiculously close squeaker in the Iowa caucuses, the state's Democratic Party said it couldn't release the raw vote totals for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. That simply isn't how they do business, party officials insisted. Even after they audited the results this week, Iowa Democratic officials would say only that Clinton won 49.84 percent of the vote and Sanders 49.59 percent, reducing her margin slightly to a quarter of a point. Sanders has called for the raw vote totals to be released. The state party says that's not the way it conducts the caucuses. And the press has...

    When Bernie Sanders came within a few coin flips of beating Hillary Clinton in the Iowa caucuses, it signaled the Democratic Party's astounding march toward an outright embrace of socialism. Young Democrats overwhelmingly supported the avowed socialist senator from Vermont, with 84 percent of those under 30 backing him. National polls show similar results. Only voters older than 45 in Iowa went strongly for Hillary Clinton, who has managed to avoid the socialist label while advocating policies that often mirror those of Sen. Sanders. People familiar with the shocking historical record of socialist countries may scratch their heads in amazement....

    America is witnessing a political Supernova--voter flirtation with Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders--because both political parties have failed ordinary folks. To listen to the Obama administration and its apologists in the media, Americans are witnessing the second age of Pericles. The economy has added jobs for 64 straight months, unemployment at 4.9 percent is approaching pre-recession lows, and nominal wages are rising again. Prairie muffins! During Ronald Reagan's presidency, jobs growth was twice the pace President Obama has accomplished, and the official unemployment rate is so low because 7 million American men ages 25 to 54 have quit looking for...
