HMM, SELF-PROCLAIMED SOCIALIST MADE $1 MILLION IN 2016 …
Bernie Sanders, the US Senator from Vermont and self-proclaimed socialist is said to have made $1,000,000 in 2016. Really? I wounder how those who supported Sanders in the 2016 Democrats primaries feel about this? Do they feel the Bern? Just how many socialist make 1 million a year? For the man who claimed to be a socialist, he very much appears to like capitalism. But then again, he is just another fraud, another politician who tells others to do things, as he does quite differently. Wake up youth, you were played.
ONE MILLION DOLLARS!!!
Thanks in large part to his successful foray into authorship, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) made more than $1 million in 2016. That’s according to his latest U.S. Senate financial disclosure, which he filed Sunday after receiving a 20-day extension.
The most notable source of income: book royalties. Sanders received a $795,000 advance for his best-selling book, “Our Revolution.” He got another $63,750 for his forthcoming “Bernie Sanders’ Guide to Political Revolution,” a book aimed at young readers co-authored with Kate Waters. And he took in $6,735 in royalties for his 1997 memoir “Outsider in the House.”
That’s more than $865,000 for peddling his working-class ideas. Not bad.
Then there’s the $2,521 Sanders earned last year in royalties for his 1987 spoken-word folk album, “We Shall Overcome.”
Senate rules do not require members to report their government salaries on their annual disclosures, but all rank-and-file members earn $174,000 a year. That, combined with the more than $878,000 Sanders reported in his filing, puts the democratic socialist’s 2016 payday at roughly $1,052,000.
MIGHTY BIG TALK FROM A NO TERM PRESIDENT …
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (S) said on Wednesday that he doesn’t believe President Donald Trump will win a second term as president. Really? Aren’t these the same people that said Donald Trump would never be elected? Also Bernie, its not like you will ever be elected president. Let’s get one thing straight folks, Bernie Sanders is not an Independent. Sanders is a socialist who ran on the Democrat ticket and nearly defeated Hillary Clinton to be the nominee for president of the Democrat Party. Don’t think the American people, and especially real independents, don’t see the fact that Democrats have obstructed the Trump administration at every turn and see thee liberal MSM playing their typical bias games and reporting. Sanders stated, “In terms of the first three months in office, Donald Trump is the least popular president in the history of polling.” Hmm, just a reminder to Sanders and the LEFT, wasn’t the polling wrong prior to Trump being elected president?
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) on Wednesday said he doesn’t believe President Trump will win a second term as president.
“In terms of the first three months in office, Donald Trump is the least popular president in the history of polling,” Sanders told The Associated Press while speaking in New York. “I do not believe that if Trump continues these policies that he’s going to be reelected. Nor do I think that the Republicans are going to do well in 2018.”
Sanders, who is planning to launch a cross-country tour with Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez next week, said a more progressive movement is underway that will hurt Republicans’ electoral chances.
“The momentum right now is with the progressive movement in this country,” Sanders said. “And I think the Republicans are on the defensive and will be on the defensive increasingly.”
Sanders pointed to Tuesday’s special election in Kansas, in which the Republican candidate narrowly won the House seat vacated by now-CIA Director Mike Pompeo in a deep-red district that Trump won overwhelmingly.
Keep up your games liberals and once again you will find yourself in another losing election. You still do not understand the connection between Donald Trump and the voters. Frankly, it is kind of comical to see the LEFT acting in the same manner and thinking they will get different results. Wait, isn’t that the definition of crazy?
HMM, IS THIS AN ADMISSION THAT THE DNC DID COLLUDE AND FAVOR HILLARY OVER BERNIE?
As reported at NBC News, the “embattled” DNC has requested resignation letters from all current staffers dated by at least April 15, 2017. There usually is mass turnover following a presidential election, but nothing like this. This extreme house cleaning is a result of the DNC’s failures in losing to Trump, failing to gain back the House and Senate and the hacked emails that came to light showing that the DNC favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary. Is this a bone thrown to the far LEFT Sanders’ voters and a sign that the Dems are going to go even farther left?
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major overhaul of the party’s organization, which has been stung by recent crises — and the DNC has requested resignation letters from all current staffers.
Party staff routinely see major turnover with a new boss and they had been alerted to expect such a move. However, the mass resignation letters will give Perez a chance to completely remake the DNC’s headquarters from scratch. Staffing had already reached unusual lows following a round of post-election layoffs in December.
Immediately after Perez’s selection as party chairman in late February, an adviser to outgoing DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile, Leah Daughtry, asked every employee to submit a letter of resignation dated April 15, according to multiple sources familiar with the party’s internal workings.
A committee advising Perez on his transition is now interviewing staff and others as part of a top-to-bottom review process to decide not only who will stay and who will go, but how the party should be structured in the future. [...]
It began with accusations that the DNC favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary, continued with the wrenching exposure of hacked emails and the abrupt resignation of former chair, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and concluded with the shocking defeat of its presidential nominee and a divisive race for the new party chairman.
The grueling experience, which followed years in which many Democrats felt the Obama White House ignored the party organization, has left the DNC with a crisis of confidence and competence.
Powerline asks why NBS News, a perennial shill for the Democrat party would use the word “embattled?”
That is the great unspoken fact of American politics. Conservatives are hard on the Republican Party–we often denounce our party’s leaders as inept, or worse. But in fact, the Republican Party is riding a wave of historic success. It is the Democrats who are sliding downhill toward oblivion, if present trends continue. Has any major political party in any country ever had such an unsympathetic set of leaders as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton? Not that I know of.
Hence the “embattled” status of the Democratic National Committee. It will take a lot more than a few staff changes to alter the fortunes of the Democratic Party, but NBC offers no evidence that any major rethinking is in progress. On the contrary.
The view that the Democrats’ problem is that they haven’t moved far enough to the Left is not widely held among objective observers, but it apparently seems plausible to NBC. Watch for the Democrats’ downhill slide to continue.
CNN Cuts Ties with DNC Chair Donna Brazile After Wikileaks Email Shows She was Aiding Clinton campaign with Debate Questions … CNN says it is “completely uncomfortable
CNN CUTS TIES WITH DONNA BRAZILE AS SECOND WIKILEAKS EMAILS ARISES THAT SHE TIPPED OFF TEAM HILLARY WITH DEBATE QUESTION.
CNN has cut ties, PC for fired, Donna Brazile after it became known that a second Wikileaks email showed that the CNN contributor and co-DNC chair had provided debate question to Hillary Clinton’s team prior to the debate. The lengths of the collusion and corruption between the media and the Democrat party is simply amazing. The DNC, who is supposed to be impartial during the primaries, was aiding Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders and his supported should be furious! During the Democrat primary Sander stated on many occasions that the system was rigged. Guess what, it was.
I asked this question after the first Email from Donna Brazile was made public by Wikileaks and I will say it again … HOW HAS DONNA BRAZILE NOT BEEN FIRED BY THE DNC? The media and the Democrat party act like this isn’t a big story. America, this is cheating at the highest levels!!!
WHY ISN’T CNN TRYING TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS? MY PERSONAL OPINION IS THEY SHOULD BE BANNED FROM DEBATES IN THE FUTURE.
CNN says it is “completely uncomfortable” with hacked emails showing that former contributor and interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile shared questions with the Clinton campaign before a debate and a town hall during the Democratic primary, and has accepted her resignation.
Hacked emails posted by WikiLeaks show Brazile, whose CNN contract was suspended when she became interim DNC chair over the summer, sharing with the Clinton campaign a question that would be posed to Hillary Clinton before the March CNN Democratic debate in Flint, as well as a possible question prior to a CNN town hall, also in March.
In a statement, CNN spokeswoman Lauren Pratapas said that on Oct. 14, the network accepted Brazile’s resignation.
“On October 14th, CNN accepted Donna Brazile’s resignation as a CNN contributor. [Her deal had previously been suspended in July when she became the interim head of the DNC.] CNN never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate. We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor,” Pratapas said.
In a tweet, Brazile thanked CNN and her now former colleagues there.
“Thank you @CNN. Honored to be a Democratic Strategist and commentator on the network. Godspeed to all my former colleagues,” she wrote.
A CNN employee, speaking on background, suggested Brazile may have met the woman who was supposed to pose the question about lead poisoning during a service event planned the day before the debate.
IMAGINE WHAT THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE WOULD LOOK LIKE IF THE MSM ACTUALLY COVERED AND REPORTED ON THE ILLS OF HILLARY CLINTON?
From The Washington Times, WikiLeaks hacked emails show Clinton campaign made disparaging comments and mocked Catholics and Southerners, called Latinos “needy, ” and called supporters of Bernie Sanders “self-righteous” whiners. But do you think the MSM would ever cover this? HELL NO!!! They are too busy running cover for Hillary Clinton and doing her opposition research and political hit jobs on Donald Trump.
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE WHAT I CALL LATINOS, CATHOLICS, SOUTHERNERS AND SANDERS SUPPORTS, THE MSM WILL NOT REPORT ON IT
Long before Hillary Clinton called millions of Americans a “basket of deplorables,” her top campaign advisers and liberal allies openly mocked Catholics, Southerners and a host of other groups, according to newly released emails that offer a stunning window into the vitriol inside the Clinton world less than a month before Election Day.
The emails, published by WikiLeaks after a hack of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s private account, also show Clinton campaign officials and Democratic leaders disparaging supporters of Sen. Bernard Sanders as “self-righteous” whiners, calling Hispanic party leaders such as Bill Richardson “needy Latinos,” labeling CNN anchor Jake Tapper “a d—k” and even lambasting longtime Clinton ally Sidney Blumenthal.
The sheer number of insults in the email trove has left the Clinton campaign, along with outside organizations such as the Center for American Progress that were routinely involved in the brutal bad-mouthing, unable or unwilling to respond. Instead, they have blamed the hack on Russia and have refused to even confirm that the emails are genuine, though they also haven’t denied their authenticity.
The Clinton campaign’s biggest problem may be its assault on Catholics. Prominent Catholic organizations called on Clinton campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri to resign after the surfacing of messages showing her making fun of the faith. The campaign of Republican nominee Donald Trump seized on the opportunity to appeal to religious voters.
