Bernie Sanders Gets Stents After Having Chest Pains While Campaigning

Well, that’s the end of that. Nobody is going to be elected president who had a cardiac incident and needed heart surgery during the campaign.

Must be all that fatty food Elizabeth Warren has been cooking for him . . .

I’m sure he will continue campaigning, but it’s over. And, in fact, it already was pretty much over for him. Warren was stealing his voters on the left, although Sanders did still have a lot of them and is raising lots of money.

To whom will he give his money and support when he leaves the trail? That’s the question. Bernie could be the kingmaker.

From a statement by Sanders campaign senior advisor Jeff Weaver.

During a campaign event yesterday evening, Sen. Sanders experienced some chest discomfort. Following medical evaluation and testing he was found to have a blockage in one artery and two stents were successfully inserted. Sen. Sanders is conversing and in good spirits. He will be resting up over the next few days. We are canceling his events and appearances until further notice, and we will continue to provide appropriate updates.

And BTW MSM. It’s not chest “discomfort.” It’s pain.

Bernie Sanders Promotes Abortion to Save us from Climate Change

Uh, that seems to be what’s going on here. Have a listen.

He’s asked about, you know, what liberals have been talking about for at least half a century, about the planet not being able to support population growth. And specifically, whether “empowering women and educating everyone about the need to curb population growth ” should be “a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe.”

So Bernie dives right in, talking about the need for abortions, particularly in poor countries. I’m sorry not abortion, “women’s right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions.” My bad.

Have a listen. It used to be abortion should be “legal, safe, and rare.” Now it’s a strategy to combat climate change.

Sanders Praises the Communist Chinese Leadership

Democratic voters, do you understand that this person is basically a communist?

How does someone like this get so close to the presidency? I don’t think he’ll get the nomination but, you know, he could.

From the Washington Examiner:

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders applauded the Chinese government’s anti-poverty programs in an answer to a question about tensions between the country and the United States during an interview aired Tuesday.

“They’re a country that vigorously protects their own interests,” the Vermont senator said in an interview with The Hill. “But what we have to say about China, in fairness to China and its leadership, is if I’m not mistaken, they have made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization, okay? So they’ve done a lot of things for their people.”

Video || Bernie Sanders Says Climate Change is Our Top National Security Issue

Where is the press pointing out that this is nuts? Well, they can’t, because it comports with political correctness. And also, they think he is factually correct.

I gather our chief concern with nuclear war must be that it could accelerate global warming. I mean, the nuclear clouds and all the debris floating above could trap heat on the earth’s surface. Now that’s scary!

Maybe this is Bernie’s plan: Replace the Navy with tugboats to drag the icebergs back to Greenland.

Sanders Backed a communist party During the 1980s

Some Republicans want Bernie Sanders to be the nominee, thinking he will be easily beatable.

But what if he manages to win? We already know that weird things happen.

Bernie Sanders is a hard lefty. We don’t know to what extent the extremist views he holds today are hiding even more extremist views he doesn’t talk about.

That’s why this article in the Washington Examiner is such cause for concern:

Bernie Sanders campaigned for the Socialist Workers Party in the 1980 and 1984 presidential campaigns and was investigated by the FBI for his ties to the Marxist group.

Sanders has always played down the extent of his involvement with the party, which included radicals who praised the Soviet Union and Cuban communists, and has denied ever being a member. Asked in 1988 about his role as an SWP elector in 1980, he said: “I was asked to put my name on the ballot and I did, that’s true.” In fact, his ties to the party are deep and enduring.

The 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate and United States senator from Vermont, now 77, often scoffs at comparisons between his brand of self-described “democratic socialism” and communism. In recent years, he has said he is merely interested in having the United States look more like Sweden, a social democracy with a broad welfare state but a well-functioning private sector.

But his personal files from his time as mayor of Burlington, from 1981 to 1989, archived at the University of Vermont, show that he supported and campaigned for the communist SWP and maintained a close relationship with its senior members. While Democrats campaigned for President Jimmy Carter in 1980 and Walter Mondale in 1984, Sanders spent the Reagan era supporting fringe Marxists with no chance of reaching the White House.

In 1980, Sanders “proudly endorsed and supported” Andrew Pulley, the party’s presidential candidate, who once said that American soldiers should “take up their guns and shoot their officers.” Sanders was one of three electors for Pulley on the Vermont ballot, stating in a press release: “I fully support the SWP’s continued defense of the Cuban revolution.”

Four years later, he backed and campaigned for the SWP presidential nominee Mel Mason, a former Black Panther, saying it was important for there to be “fundamental alternatives to capitalist ideology.” During the campaign, Mason praised the Russian and Chinese revolutions and said: “The greatest example of a socialist government is Cuba, and Nicaragua is right behind, but it’s still developing.”

“I think Bernie was pretty in-the-camp with us and other socialist organizations,” Mason told the Washington Examiner in an interview.

Bernie Sanders: Israel Run by a “Right Wing . . . Racist Government”

So therefore, ergo, the Israelis who just elected him are a bunch of racists as well. The Israelis are surrounded by people who do not merely want their own state, but who want to destroy Israel. That’s why they have, now five times, voted in a man, Benuamin Netanyahu, with a sober view of the… Continue Reading

New Top Bernie Sanders Aide Applauded Venezuela’s Chavez

Many people don’t fully appreciate what’s going on here. Bernie looks sort of benign, like a cranky Jewish grandpa from Brooklyn. But what he is, is a hard-core socialist. Ironic that the media believe democracy is imperiled by Donald Trump while they think an extremist from the left who honeymooned in the Soviet Union will… Continue Reading

Video || Bernie Sanders Declares America “Fundamentally Immoral and Wrong”

You know, the way the left actually thinks about America slips out every now and then, but it shouldn’t surprise people too much. Appearing Wednesday on CBS This Morning, Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders said: I think there is an understanding that there is something fundamentally immoral and wrong about a nation in which we have… Continue Reading
