In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

One of two main speakers opening night of the Democratic convention is a socialist

A socialist who honeymooned in the Soviet Union. Is there, honestly a lot more that you need to know about the Democratic Party than that Bernie Sanders is its star and will get things off to a roaring start Monday might? Bernie will have lots of help, because this is the new base of the Democratic Party. It is about revolutionary change, done violently if

Sanders Endorses Biden

Bernie Sanders Monday finally endorsed Joe Biden to be president. “I’m asking every Democrat, I’m asking every independent, I’m asking a lot of Republicans to come together in this campaign to support your candidacy, which I endorse,” he said. Sanders said Biden is needed to unseat “the most dangerous president in the modern history of this country.” Well, don’t worry, the socialist dream is hardly

It Turns Out Sanders Did Not Actually Withdraw from the Race

He’s not campaign as much, maybe. And he knows he can’t win. But he is still very much in this, as Kimberly Strassel notes in the Wall Street Journal: Sanders said he nonetheless would . . . “stay on the ballot in all remaining states and continue to gather delegates,” so as to exert “significant influence” over the party. He also declined to promise he’ll

Video || Bernie Decides to Stay in the Race

You knew that was coming. The good news is, they’ll have a debate Sunday night. I want to see how Biden does, and whether he has the mental endurance to go one-on-one with someone. It’s important to know that someone who could be president can do this. I like the slo-mo at the beginning of this. Makes him look frightening. You know, in other ways

Biden Way Ahead of Sanders in Michigan Primary Polls

The primary is Tuesday, and it’s almost a must-win for Bernie Sanders, but he is trailing Joe Biden badly in two recent polls. Worth remembering, though, that polls showed Sanders well behind Hillary Clinton there right before the 2016 primary, and he pulled out a win anyway on the strength of a surge in younger voters.

Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg have both withdrawn from the race and endorsed Biden. Harry Reid, former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe,  late Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy’s wife, Vicki Kennedy, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and

Sanders Praises “Massive” Castro Literacy Program and Asks: “Is That a bad Thing”?

Appearing on CBS’ 60 Minutes Sunday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders had some kind words to say about Fidel Castro. For example, the tyrant taught everyone to read. Not a stretch to say it takes a certain mindset to say nice things about Castro. And BTW, communist regimes are always great with literacy programs. They teach you to read . . . and then they give

Bernie Soaring in New National Poll

Uh oh. The Democrats are doing to nominate an actual socialist. Republicans think this is fantastic. As President Trump — and Ronald Reagan — taught Democrats, be careful what you wish for. According to the Washington Post: Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), on the strength of his performances in Iowa and New Hampshire, has surged nationally and now holds a sizable lead over all of his

Sanders Compares Himself to Nelson Mandela

I wasn’t aware that we had Apartheid in this country. But Bernie is aware of it. I dunno. I guess if Obama could slow the rise of the oceans — or, in the view of his supporters, walk on them — then Bernie can be Mandela.

Bernie Said in 1972 He Didn’t Mind Getting Called a Communist

According to the Washington Examiner: President Trump recent jab at Bernie Sanders as “a communist” was meant as an insult. But the 2020 Democrat and Vermont senator wouldn’t take it that way.  In 1972, Sanders, then a gubernatorial protest candidate for the socialist Liberty Union party, visited an alternative high school in Rutland, Vermont to give his campaign pitch. During a question-and-answer session, Sanders, then
