    The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) has officially endorsed Bernie Sanders for president, with the organization throwing its growing political clout behind the Vermont senator ahead of the 2020 election. The DSA’s National Political Committee leadership team voted to back Sanders during a meeting on Thursday night, after the rank-and-file membership had earlier overwhelmingly pledged their support. The backing of the DSA will provide a further fillip to Sanders, who quickly outraised most of his rivals for the Democratic nomination. The DSA endorsed Sanders in 2016 and helped the leftwing candidates Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib win long-shot elections to...

    One of the leading Democratic presidential contenders, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, cut his head on the edge of a shower door Friday morning, which required seven stitches. The 77-year-old self-described socialist went to a walk-in clinic for treatment after the slip and walked out with a scar and an otherwise clean bill of health, his campaign told reporters.

Campaign spokesman Arianna Jones told reporters that Sanders cut his head on the edge of a glass shower door Friday and went to a walk-in clinic. She says the 77-year-old Sanders received a half-dozen stitches and was given a "clean bill of health."

    **SNIP** At the core of their frustrations is a belief that Clinton beat Sanders fair and square and that Sanders was a sore loser. These attacks are their way of warning the American public it could happen again, leaving a divided Democratic party in the general election against Trump. “I think we are all just scarred by 2016 at large and would like to prevent that again,” one former Clinton staffer said of former aide’s attacks against Sanders. These former Clinton aides aren’t tearing apart Sanders’s current policy agenda (probably because most major Democratic candidates have essentially adopted it). They’re...

    Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders came to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s defense, calling the recent treatment of the freshman congresswoman over her allegedly anti-Semitic remarks “wrong.” Sanders, who is Jewish, acknowledged in a statement Wednesday that “anti-Semitism is a hateful and dangerous ideology which must be vigorously opposed in the United States and around the world.” But the independent Vermont senator added: “We must not, however, equate anti-Semitism with legitimate criticism of the right-wing, Netanyahu government in Israel. Rather, we must develop an even-handed Middle East policy which brings Israelis and Palestinians together for a lasting peace.”

    A former top Hillary Clinton aide took aim at 2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., on Friday, after Sanders said he wasn’t really interested in receiving any advice from his 2016 Democratic presidential primary rival, citing “fundamental differences” with her. “I don’t know who our nominee is going to be but I am damn sure that beating Trump & getting America back on the right footing is going to require a unified Democratic Party, so crap like this 613 days before Election Day is irresponsible, counter-productive, & sets us all back,” former Clinton senior adviser Nick Merrill tweeted Friday....

    The Democratic Socialists of America are preparing to launch a full campaign supporting Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary, DSA memos show.________ • The DSA may not support the Democratic nominee if someone other than Sanders wins the primary. • One memo cited “developing propaganda” as a “primary task of the national DSA Bernie campaign.” • Another memo stressed the “need to agitate for Sanders” among “rank-and-file union members.” The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) have yet to publicly endorse Vermont Sen.

    Not many presidential candidates in American history, outside perhaps a Eugene Debs or Gus Hall, would announce a presidential bid vowing to “transform the country” and complete “the political revolution.” Then again, not many candidates have been like Bernie Sanders, a lifetime socialist who, in the 1980 presidential campaign, when normal people were deciding between Carter or Reagan, served as a presidential elector for the Socialist Workers’ Party. And yet, this onetime Trotskyist and member of a Marxist-Stalinist kibbutz received 13 million votes in the 2016 Democratic Party primary, or 40% of Democrat votes. This isn’t your granddaddy’s Democratic Party,...

    CNN failed to disclose the political connections of audience members who questioned 2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) during his town hall on the network last night, per a report from Paste Magazine. The leftist outlet found that CNN described Baltimore County Democratic Party Chair Tara Ebersole as a “former biology professor,” Charles County Democratic Central Committee Chair Abena McAllister as “an active Democrat,” a Public Policy intern at DC Cassidy and Associates — a large lobbying firm — as an “American University student,” and an intern at the Katz Watson Group fundraising and consulting firm as a “George...

    Bernie Sanders catalyzed the Democratic Party’s post-Obama move to the left. He nearly beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democratic primaries, and may have even been a stronger candidate against Donald Trump in the general. Now he’s back, and the party’s surging left wing is conflicted. At one level, it’s thrilling for the left: If the self-proclaimed democratic socialist were elected president in 2020, it would represent a truly historic swing in the country’s political orientation. No one would be as committed to the party’s new, socialist-inflected policy agenda than the guy who came up with much of it in...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., announced Tuesday he will make another bid for president by entering the already crowded 2020 race, as he tries to rekindle the grassroots energy from his 2016 primary run against Hillary Clinton. Sanders made the announcement in an interview with Vermont Public Radio, followed by a web video and email to supporters. "Together, you and I and our 2016 campaign began the political revolution. Now, it is time to complete that revolution and implement the vision that we fought for," he told supporters.

    Socialism may be the chic belief among some progressive Democrats and independents. American voters, however, give a very tepid review of socialism according to new Fox News poll. It found that only a quarter of registered U.S. voters them gave thumbs up to socialism — the economic ideology praised by Sen. Bernie Sanders, Vermont independent, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat. “Capitalism buries socialism,” said Fox News polling director Dana Blanton. “Despite the prominence of socialistic ideas and policy proposals in recent weeks, Americans are favorable toward the merits of the capitalistic system. And they’re bullish on the...

    Poor Bernie. He’s been mugged. He started all this modern free-stuff socialism when he ran for president in 2016. Now his fellow Democrats-turnedsocialists have ripped off all his issues, made them their own, and left poor Bernie in the dust. And Bernie Sanders, the U.S. senator from Vermont, who gave Hillary Clinton a run for her money in the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries, is struggling to remain relevant. It is a shame because Bernie is the founder of the big government, modern free-stuff movement that every Democrat running for president has locked onto and built on.
