YAWN … Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton & Bernie Sanders Top 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates in New Poll
POLL SHOWS THAT 3 DINOSAURS LEAD FOR DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR 2020 …
According to a recent Harvard CAPS/Harris poll, with more than two years to go before the 2020 presidential election, former Vice President Joe Biden is the early favorite to represent the Democrats, Hilary Clinton is second and Bernie Sanders third. That is correct, the same old tired usual suspects are the leading candidates to take on President Trump in 2020. So the Democrats have the following as their best presidential candidates. Crazy Uncle Joe Biden, did we forget to mention CREEPY was first with 32%, Hillary Clinton, two time presidential candidate loser and the women who lost lost in the greatest political upset in history was second with 18%. And socialist Bernie Sanders was third with 16%. Doesn’t that just make you want to run out and vote? Did we mentions that for the 2020 elections, Biden will be 77, Hillary Clinton 72 and Sanders 78. What is this Jurassic Park 10? Honestly, I just can’t see Hillary running again after her 2016 debacle and her never getting over her loss. Sorry, but Biden and Sanders are too old. However, something tells me that Sanders will run and take the Democrat party of the liberal socialists cliff.
Others making the poll and showing the further lack of a Democrat bench were Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was fourth with 10%, who will be 71. She was followed by Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) 6%, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg 3%, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) 2%, and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo each with 1%. Wow, that’s it? Others who have been rumored to be running are Former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, Former U.S. attorney general Eric Holder, Former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick.
With more than two years to go before the next presidential election, former Vice President Joe Biden is the early favorite to represent the Democrats and try to unseat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, according to a new poll.
Biden was the choice of 32 percent of Democrats in a Harvard CAPS/Harris June poll that was obtained by The Hill. The party’s 2016 standard bearer, Hillary Clinton, came in second with 18 percent and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., was third with 16 percent.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was fourth with 10 percent of the vote.
Biden, who would be 77 on Election Day in 2020, has been one of Trump’s most vocal critics since the 2016 campaign. On at least two occasions, the former vice president has indicated that he wishes he was back in high school so that he could physically confront the president over his comments about women. (Trump responded in a tweet that Biden would “go down fast and hard, crying all the way” if they fought.)
Although Clinton has given no indication she intends to run again, both Biden and Sanders have not ruled out a run in 2020.
Among other Democrats included in the poll, The Hill reported that Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., got 6 percent, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg got 3 percent, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., got 2 percent, while Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo each got 1 percent.
Bernie Sanders Says, “Our Socialist Ideas are Winning” … And Sanders Also Said, “Do you think in a year or two suddenly we transform the entire Democratic Party”
I GUESS SOCIALIST HAVE THEIR OWN DEFINITION OF WINNING …
Hmm, Donald Trump is President, their is a Republican controlled House Republican controlled Senate, the economy is booming once Trump was elected and allowed capitalist principles to take over and some how self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders says his socialist ideas are winning. Two takes from Bernie’s interview with Chris Cuomo, one is a total joke, but the others should frighten old time Democrats.
When Cuome asked, “Why aren’t you doing better, You had a lot of guys lose. I don’t think you’re even at 500.” The socialist Sanders actually had the audacity to say, “Chris, that is in all due respect not an intelligent way to look at it.” HUH? So actually winning a political election isn’t an intelligent way of gauging whether you are winning. Alrighty then. I guess Bernie thinks participation trophies are winning.
However, this is the comment that should push all blue collar, hard working middle class Democrats to vote Republican and Trump … “Do you think that — you know a little bit about politics. Do you think in a year or two suddenly we transform the entire Democratic Party.” Attention blue collar Democrats, this dude and progressives want to transform the Democrat party to the Socialist party.

CUOMO: “All right. One more beat on the political state of play and then policy. I did a lot of homework for you tonight, senator. On politics you said part of the remedy is new blood, new candidates. A great book about this. Handbook for revolution. You know, with a small ‘R.’ How you take back control of the democracy. Your candidates are not doing great. What did you get wrong?”
SANDERS: “Not — not true. Look, Chris. Do you think that — you know a little bit about politics. Do you think in a year or two suddenly we transform the entire Democratic Party, take on big money, take on the establishment? The truth of the matter is what we have been focusing on is grassroots activism and doing extremely well. We have been —”
CUOMO: “Why aren’t the candidates winning more?”
SANDERS: “Oh, my God, they’re winning all over the country.”
CUOMO: “You had a lot of guys lose. I don’t think you’re even at 500.”
SANDERS: “Chris, that is in all due respect not an intelligent way to look at it. I can be at 100% if I keep — supported candidates who had all the money and the power and the poll. We are trying to support candidates who are fighting for working people and by the way where we are winning hands down is that our Progressive agenda which is as you will remember is considered to be fringe and extreme, that’s kind of mainstream now. Raising the minimum wage to 15 bucks a hour. Making public colleges and universities tuition free. Rebuilding the infrastructure.”
SANDERS: “Our ideas on winning and at the grassroots level more and more people are getting involved.”
Of course one might ask the Socialist Sanders why he isn’t supporting or endorsing his own son in his Congressional race in New Hampshire.
JUST LIKE A SOCIALIST … PROPOSES IGNORANT SOCIALIST JOBS PROGRAM WHEN 14 STATES HAVE RECORDED RECORD ALL-TIME LOW UNEMPLOYMENT RATES …
As reported at The Hill, socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of The People’s Republic of Vermont has announced a federal jobs proposal that would guarantee a job with at least a $15-per-hour wage and health benefits to every adult American “who wants or needs one.” UNREAL, just how would we pay for this socialist program? NOW? Jobs under the Trump administration are being created hand over fist. Capitalism seems to be working just fine. Fourteen states have recorded record low unemployment in the past year which begs the question, why would individuals need the government for a job, except to be kept dependent? If Americans want to work, they just need apply. But what else would one expect from a socialist but making individuals dependent upon government.
The senator is still in the early stages of crafting the plan, according to the Post, which would provide a job or required training for any American.
Sanders’s office has yet to release the details of the plan’s funding, but previous large-scale projects proposed by the Vermont progressive have involved ending tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and large corporations.
The Vermont senator joins two other possible 2020 contenders, Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who have also expressed support for similar proposals in recent weeks.
“The goal is to eliminate working poverty and involuntary unemployment altogether,” Darrick Hamilton, an economist at The New School, told the Post.
Maybe Bernie and his socialist friends might want to take a look at the failed Finland experiment … Finland’s basic income trial falls flat. This is what socialism looks like, failure.
The Finnish government has decided not to expand a limited trial in paying people a basic income, which has drawn much international interest.
Currently 2,000 unemployed Finns are receiving a flat monthly payment of €560 (£490; $685) as basic income.
“The eagerness of the government is evaporating. They rejected extra funding [for it],” said Olli Kangas, one of the experiment’s designers.
Some see basic income as a way to get unemployed people into temporary jobs.
The argument is that, if paid universally, basic income would provide a guaranteed safety net. That would help to address insecurities associated with the “gig” economy, where workers do not have staff contracts.
Supporters say basic income would boost mobility in the labour market as people would still have an income between jobs.
Finland’s two-year pilot scheme started in January 2017, making it the first European country to test an unconditional basic income. The 2,000 participants – all unemployed – were chosen randomly.
But it will not be extended after this year, as the government is now examining other schemes for reforming the Finnish social security system.
Socialist Bernie Sanders Blames Crooked Hillary Clinton For Hiding Russian Meddling InfoDuring 2016 Democrat Primaries
IT WOULD APPEAR THERE IS DISHARMONY ON THE LEFT …
It would appear there is some friction between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders following last week’s Mueller indictment of 13 Russians operating on line to meddle in the 2016 presidential election. The indictment showed these Russian trolls were also supporting Hillary’s Democrat rival, Bernie Sanders. Oops. Sen. Bernie Sanders (Socialist – VT) said Wednesday that he did not know at the time that Russian trolls promoted his 2016 presidential campaign and wondered why Hillary Clinton’s team did not do more to tell voters about the extent of Russia’s election interference. Gee Bernie, crooked Hillary also did not tell you she was colluding with the DNC against you as well. Maybe this is why so many of your supporters were so disappointed when you actually lowered yourself and supported Hillary’s campaign.
“If he was aware that Russians were trying to promote him and divide Democrats against Mrs. Clinton, why did he not communicate this to his supporters?” the listener asked Sanders.
“This was not supporting me any more than they were supporting groups like Black Lives Matter that are fighting for social justice,” Sanders said.
“I did not know that Russian bots were promoting my campaign,” Sanders added. “Russians bots were not promoting my campaign. What we found out is that in April and May, it appeared that there were lots of strange things happening, attacking Hillary Clinton.”
The interviewer asked Sanders why he and his campaign did not tell his supporters about Russian interference if they knew Moscow was meddling to sow divisions.
“I would say that the real question to be asked is what was the Clinton campaign—they had more information about this than we did, and at this point, we were working with them,” he responded.
“So did the Clinton campaign say, ‘Don’t talk about this?’” the interviewer asked.
“No, of course not, but who do you think would be raising that issue?” Sanders said.
“I could see a world in which Mrs. Clinton said, ‘It’s the Russians,’ and Sanders supporters say, ‘Oh, that’s baloney,’ but if Sanders says it, they say, ‘OK,’” his interviewer said.
“We knew what we knew when we knew it, and that’s about all that I can say,” Sanders said.
Grand Jury takes Sworn Testimony in Burlington College President Jane Sanders Case (Bernie Sanders Wife)
SO WHO IS IN DEEP LEGAL TROUBLE?
With the bias and liberal MSM focusing negatively on President Donald Trump and the so-called Russian collusion investigation that has amounted to nothing more than a partisan witch hunt, look who actually finds themselves in real legal trouble … why its former Burlington College president Jane Sanders, the wife of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). As much as the Sanders family wants to deny the story and the MSM wants to ignore it all together, federal prosecutors had convened a grand jury. When a grand jury is convened, that can only suggest the prosecutors are seeking indictments.
The federal probe into a 2010 land deal orchestrated by former Burlington College president Jane Sanders, wife of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has deepened. VTDigger has confirmed that a grand jury has compelled sworn witness testimony in the case.
The Vermont U.S. Attorney’s office has interviewed at least one witness before the grand jury to determine whether indictments should be handed down.
Former Burlington College board member Robin Lloyd says she testified for about an hour on Oct. 26 before a grand jury at the federal courthouse in Burlington.
Paul Van de Graaf, chief of the criminal division for the U.S. attorney’s office in Vermont, questioned Lloyd about her role as the development chair of the college’s board of trustees during a period when Sanders was collecting donations and pledges for the purchase of a $10 million city lakefront property.
Lloyd, who is publisher of the progressive website Toward Freedom, kept copious board meeting minutes as the development chair for the college. In the interview with Van de Graaf, Lloyd said he “was focused on what I knew about who had been approached for contributions.”
“I helped provide a timeline of what happened — and when — in terms of development,” Lloyd said. “It was general questions about donors, and money coming in.”
Jane and Bernie Sanders have vehemently denied any impropriety surrounding the land deal.
Jeff Weaver, a spokesman for the Sanders and former campaign manager, told Seven Days Sunday night, “We have absolutely no reason to believe that there is a grand jury empaneled to examine Burlington College, Jane Sanders, or any aspect of Dr. Sanders’ service as president of Burlington College. As best we can tell, the current news reports are simply recycling an account of a government interview of a witness from several months ago. Nothing new here.”
Lloyd’s appearance is the first public confirmation that the federal government has compelled a grand jury.
A grand jury is typically convened following evidence gathering and investigation by the government. The prosecutor presents an outline of the government’s case to the jury, which may include evidence and live witness testimony. The jury then must determine whether there is probable cause of criminality, and whether an individual should be put on trial. A grand jury is typically comprised of between 16 to 23 members who are selected at random. Witnesses testify under oath. An indictment is only issued if at least 12 jurors are in agreement, according to the Department of Justice.
