Dem Primary Candidate Bernie Sanders Shared His Marxist Dreams for America Last Night…His Dreams Require a Lot of OUR Money

bernie-sanders-on-fox-news-debate-1

Last night, appearing on a Fox News Channel Town Hall, Democratic Primary Candidate Bernie Sanders…

…seeking to assure a voter from Russia that his brand of “democratic socialism” would not bring widespread poverty and despair to the United States, Sanders said he instead wanted a country more like Denmark, Finland and Sweden.

“What happened in the Soviet Union was not socialism, it was authoritarian communism,” Sanders said as attendees cheered.

“I’m not an expert on the current economy in Sweden,” Sanders responded when MacCallum noted Sweden was pushing towards more deregulation and less taxes, and that the population in the U.S. is much larger than that of the Nordic countries. “They have gone a long way to eliminate poverty, to make sure that all of their people have the basic needs that they need to live good lives.”

Sanders said studies have shown that countries like Denmark are among the “happiest on earth,” because they provide various free services like college and health care.

Other studies, however, have showed that Denmark essentially free-rides heavily from U.S. capitalism, and argue that mimicking their welfare programs may backfire.

Sanders also slammed President Trump’s response to the coronavirus outbreak — and said that he would not consider closing the border, no matter what.

“If you had to, would you close down the borders?” Baier asked, referring to efforts to stop the spread of coronavirus.

“No,” Sanders replied flatly.

He went on to condemn xenophobia and suggest that scientists would need to outline the appropriate approach.

Sanders also hit Trump’s appointment of Vice President Mike Pence to lead the coronavirus task force and inaccurately claimed that Trump had advised Americans with the virus to head to work. In fact, Trump told Fox News “Hannity” that, empirically, some Americans are going to work with the virus and recovering without incident.

“Sadly, we have an administration in Washington that has shown the world that it does not believe in science,” Sanders said, taking aim at the White House on issues from climate change to health care. “When you appoint Vice President Pence, an individual who also doesn’t much believe in science, what you’re telling the whole world is that you’re politicizing this issue.”

Baier pressed Sanders on the coronavirus response, saying that Trump has in fact appointed numerous experts to address the issue. Sanders responded by mocking Trump’s claim to have a “natural ability” to address disasters.

“You listen to the scientists; you don’t say stupid things,” Sanders said. “You don’t suggest to people they can go to work.”

Sanders returned to his talking points about the wealthiest people not paying their “fair share” in taxes, leading MacCallum to probe whether Sanders would reconsider his policies given the ongoing stock market crisis.

“I will not become president until January, and the economic situation will be different then,” Sanders said. As to what he would do if he were president today, Sanders said an “economic stimulus” could come in the form of “invest[ing] in working-class people in good-paying jobs by rebuiling our crumbling infrastructure — roads, bridges.”

He added that “I’m not here to demonize anybody,” after MacCallum pointed out that Bill Gates is contributing substantially to coronavirus efforts. At the same time, Sanders said, it was absurd to depend upon the “generosity” of billionaires.

Then, in a dramatic call-and-response moment with the audience at the town hall, Sanders established that Canada is not a socialist or communist system of government and yet manages to provide government-run health care at a minimal cost to patients. The president, for his part, has derided Canada’s health-care system and pointed out that even Canadians complain about their long waiting times, relatively substandard care, and high taxes.

The Vermont senator acknowledged that taxes would go up by 4 percent at a minimum to incomes over $29,000, in additional to more payroll taxes on employers and stock market transaction taxes, but asserted that “comprehensive” health care is worth it.

Sanders said he wanted a “modest” tax on “Wall Street speculation.” The proposal, according to Sanders’ campaign, specifically would place a “0.5 percent tax on stock trades – 50 cents on every $100 of stock – a 0.1 percent fee on bond trades, and a 0.005 percent fee on derivative trades.”

Sanders’ campaign has claimed that a “modest tax on Wall Street speculation … will raise an estimated $2.4 trillion over ten years” and, in one fell swoop, make all “public colleges, universities and trade schools tuition-free … and cancel all student debt over the next decade.”

However, the National Review has likened a tax on so-called “Wall Street speculation” to a de facto tax on savings, and asserted the Sanders plan is untested and “would mean paying $25 to the federal government every time you traded $5,000 worth of stock — or five times what you’d pay the typical online brokerage in fees. … Over the long term, that imposes serious costs on actively traded funds such as the ones containing many Americans’ retirement funds.”

Bernie Sanders is like all Marxists. They want all of us to “share the wealth” WITH THEM.

It’s no wonder that he makes the con job known as Socialism sound good to young minds full of mush.

He has had years of practice.

Per discoverthenetworks.org,

Bernard “Bernie” Sanders was born in Brooklyn, New York on September 8, 1941, to Polish immigrants of Jewish descent. After attending Brooklyn College for one year, he transferred to the University of Chicago (UC) and earned a bachelor’s degree in political science in 1964. At UC, Sanders joined the Young Peoples Socialist League (youth wing of the Socialist Party USA) as well as the Congress of Racial Equality and the Student Peace Union.

After college, Sanders lived briefly on an Israeli kibbutz, then moved to Vermont where he worked variously as a carpenter, filmmaker, writer, and researcher. In 1971 he joined the anti-war Liberty Union Party (LUP), on whose ticket he made unsuccessful runs for the U.S. Senate in 1972 and 1974, and for Governor of Vermont in 1976. Sanders’s LUP platform called for the nationalization of all U.S. banks, public ownership of all utiliies, and the establishment of a worker-controlled federal government.

Sanders resigned from LUP in 1979 and became a political Independent. Two years later he was elected mayor of Burlington, Vermont, a post he held until 1989. Sanders created some controversy when he hung a Soviet flag in his mayoral office, in honor of Burlington’s Soviet sister city Yaroslav.

According to an Accuracy In Media report, Sanders during the 1980s “collaborated with Soviet and East German ‘peace committees'” whose aim was “to stop President Reagan’s deployment of nuclear missiles in Europe.” Indeed, he “openly joined the Soviets’ ‘nuclear freeze’ campaign to undercut Reagan’s military build-up.”

In 1985 Sanders traveled to Managua, Nicaragua to celebrate the sixth anniversary of the rise to power of Daniel Ortega and his Marxist-Leninist Sandinista government.

In 1986 Sanders ran unsuccessfully for Governor of Vermont, and two years later he made a failed bid for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

In November 1989 Sanders addressed the national conference of the U.S. Peace Council, a Communist Party USA front. The event focused on how to “end the Cold War” and “fund human needs.” Fellow speakers included such notables as Leslie Cagan, John Conyers, and Manning Marable.

Choosing not to seek re-election to a fifth term as mayor, Sanders spent 1989-90 working as a lecturer at Hamilton College in upstate New York and the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

By 1990 Sanders was a leading member of Jesse Jackson’s National Rainbow Coalition, and he ran successfully for Congress as a socialist, representing Vermont’s single at-large congressional district. The following year, Sanders founded the Congressional Progressive Caucus along with fellow House members Tom Andrews, Peter DeFazio, Ron Dellums, Lane Evans, and Maxine Waters.

During the 1990s, Sanders participated multiple times in the Socialist Scholars Conferences that were held annually in New York City.

…Sanders has long maintained that “global warming/climate change” not only threatens “the fate of the entire planet,” but is caused chiefly by human industrial activity and must be curbed by means of legislation strictly limiting carbon emissions. In 2007 Sanders and Senator Barbara Boxer proposed the Global Warming Pollution Reduction Act, which, according to an MIT study, would have imposed on U.S. taxpayers a yearly financial burden of more than $4,500 per family, purportedly to check climate change. In February 2010 Sanders likened climate-change skeptics to people who had disregarded the Nazi threat prior to WWII: “During that period of Nazism and fascism’s growth … there were people in this country and in the British parliament who said, ‘Don’t worry! Hitler’s not real! It’ll disappear!’” Accusing “big business” of being “willing to destroy the planet for short-term profits,” Sanders in 2013 said that “global warming is a far more serious problem than al Qaeda.” Stating unequivocally that “the scientific community is unanimous” in its belief that “the planet is warming up,” Sanders the following year declared that the “debate is over” and emphasized the importance of “transform[ing] our energy systems away from fossil fuels.”

In September 2011, Sanders was the first U.S. Senator to support the anti-capitalist Occupy Wall Street movement, lauding its activists for focusing a “spotlight” on the need for “real Wall Street reform.”

In March 2013, Sanders and fellow Senator Tom Harkin together introduced a bill to tax Wall Street speculators. “Both the economic crisis and the deficit crisis are a direct result of the greed, recklessness, and illegal behavior on Wall Street,” said Sanders.

Over the years, Sanders’s political campaigns have received strong support from such organizations as the AFL-CIO, the American Association for Justice, the Backbone Campaign, the Council for a Livable World, the Democratic Socialists of America, and Peace Action.

In other words, he’s a Far Left, Socialist Whackjob.

French sociologist and political theorist Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859) traveled to the America in 1831 to study our prisons and returned to France with a wealth of broader observations that he compiled together in “Democracy in America” (1835), one of the most influential books of the 19th century. With its spot-on observations on equality and individualism, Tocqueville’s work remains a valuable explanation of America to Europeans and of Americans to ourselves.

He once observed that

Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.

In other words, the failed political ideology of socialism takes away the exhilaration and fulfillment of individual achievement and replaces it with self-sacrifice in servitude to the State, for the good of the Central Nanny-State Government, which, in turn, promises to “share the wealth”, but, as was the case in the old Soviet Union, and more recently, Venezuela, never does.

The great Sir Winston Churchill once said that

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

I would rather be blessed than miserable.

How about you?

Bernie Sanders is indeed a shining example of the “diversity” to be found in today’s “Democratic Socialist” Party.

He is more crooked than a dog’s hind leg and he and his “fellow travelers” are attempting to prove that the political philosophy of Marxism will work in America. even though it has failed everywhere it has been tried.

Bernie constantly extols the virtues of socialism without “sharing any of HIS wealth”, somehow becoming a millionaire many times over while “working” as a “public servant”.

Ah, Liberal Hypocrisy.

Ain’t it grand?

Buttigieg Bows Out. Trump Tweets “This is the REAL Beginning of the Dems Taking Bernie Out of Play”

pete-buttigieg-1

FoxNews.com reports that

Moments after former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg told supporters he’s ending his presidential campaign Sunday, President Trump said it reflected the growing pressure among more moderate Democrats to consolidate in order to blunt the rise of progressive Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

Trump tweeted: “Pete Buttigieg is OUT. All of his Super Tuesday votes will go to Sleepy Joe Biden. Great timing. This is the REAL beginning of the Dems taking Bernie out of play – NO NOMINATION, AGAIN!”

Buttigieg previously had said Sanders was too liberal to be elected.

Buttigieg’s withdrawal came just days before voters in 14 states are set to head to the polls on Super Tuesday, where one-third of all delegates for the nomination will be at stake.

His exit likely will harm frontrunner Sanders by providing a coalescing boost to more moderate candidates, as Buttigieg had gone on the offensive against the Vermont senator and sought to appeal to the centrist base of the party.

Sanders’ delegate lead over Joe Bidenhas shrunk from 30 to 8 after Biden’s big win in the South Carolina primary.

With 54 delegates at stake in South Carolina, the former vice president picked up 35 to Sanders’ 13, according to The Associated Press’ delegate count. Six delegates remained to be allocated pending final vote totals.

Heading into key Super Tuesday contests, Sanders has led the overall race for delegates with 58 while Biden had 50. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., had 8 and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., had 7. It takes 1,991 delegates to win.

Buttigieg, the first openly gay candidate to seriously contend for the presidency, tried to make the case that his party thrived when it embraced candidates who offered generational change.

But, the 38-year-old Afghanistan war veteran ended up being more successful at winning older voters while Sanders, 78, captured the energy of younger voters.

“He’s not going anywhere,” Trump said in January. “He was a lousy mayor of a place that is not doing well — [but] Indiana is doing unbelievably well.”

He called South Bend, a city of more than 100,000 people a few miles south of the Michigan line, “badly run” under Buttigieg, while the Hoosier State on the whole had “the best year they’ve ever had” in 2019.

Last year, the president, known for bullying schoolyard nicknames for his political rivals, compared Buttigieg to the longtime mascot for Mad magazine.

“Alfred E. Neuman cannot become president of the United States,” the president said, referring to the decades-old Mad character.

“Bullying” nicknames?

Give me a break.

I know that the Murdock sons’ wives are Liberal, but CNN and MSNBC are already Liberal News Channels, Fox News does not need to go to the Dark Side, also.

But, I digress.

Concerning the dearly departed Mayor Pete Buttigeig…

He knew he had no chance.

I knew he had no chance. Heck, to borrow a line from Pro Wrestling Great Jerry “The King” Lawler,

I couldn’t warm up to that guy if we were cremated together.

It’s not the fact that he is a homosexual.

It’s the fact that he, like so many Liberal Democrat public figures nowadays, is a Modern Day Pharisee.

Last month, Conservative Talk Show Host Dana Loesch wrote an article on this subject for TheFederalist.com. Here is a spot-on snippet from that article.

Buttigieg believes everyone else’s sin is up for discussion — except his own. He cites Trump’s behavior, but what of Pete’s? Scripture is explicitly clear on the topic of sin and that everyone sins — and thank goodness for grace and forgiveness.

Buttigieg likes to say, “God doesn’t have a political party,” which is correct. But God did give commandments to uphold, commandments which conflict with policies such as late-term, post-birth, and partial-birth abortion, policies Buttigieg and his party are trying to normalize as mainstream Christian doctrine while passing judgment on the manner in which Trump tweets. If Buttigieg’s “positions are informed by his faith,” as he so often says, you wouldn’t know it.

Buttigieg can cite Scripture, but does he follow it? He forgets that “It is not those who hear the law who are righteous but those who obey the law that will be declared righteous.”

At the (CNN) town hall, Buttigieg said “the interpretation” of Trump’s conduct deserves a voice by way of his office and this presidential race — but then so does Buttigieg’s, and if Scripture is the litmus test he chooses, then logic and fairness dictate that he too must be judged by these same standards. No one, not Trump nor Buttigieg, is free of sin. I don’t apply this to Buttigieg alone. As I said, everyone falls short of God’s glory, but — and I say this in a spirit of Christian love — it is difficult to lecture on sin while trying to make sin mainstream.

Now, I am not perfect.

There was and is only one who walked this Earth who was and is perfect.

However, when Mayor Pete started lecturing average Christian Americans as to how narrow-minded they were about him “laying with another man” in a bond sanctified by the state but not by God’s Word, all the while telling Americans what a wonderful Christian that HE was, I am quite certain that his hypocritical arrogance did not sit well with a lot of average Americans.

I know that it did not sit right with me.

Average Americans had our fill during the eight long, arduous years of President Obama telling us that our country was not great and that our traditional faith and values were not acceptable, but the list of acts which used to appear in the text book for the college course “The Sociology of Deviant Behavior” were.

As the Primary Season went on, more and more Americans started realizing what a “lightweight” Mayor Pete actually was, leading to his already low poll numbers dropping.

President Trump is probably spot on, concerning the Dems’ desire to sabotage Bernie’s opportunity to be their President Candidate.

Just as the majority of Americans would not vote for Mayor Pete, an even bigger majority will not vote for the ol’ Commie, Bernie Sanders.

That is why they probably will attempt to make Biden the candidate, even if he is clearly in the first stages of dementia.

The Democratic Convention should be very interesting as I do not believe that the Wokesheviks, i.e. the Bernie Bros, will go silently into that good night.

Oh, one last thought…if Democrats who speak and behave in the manner in which Mayor Pete does are now considered “Moderate”, then would Karl Marx be considered a “Centrist”?

Until He Comes.

Trump Takes Audience Poll at SC KAG Rally, Who Will Be Easier to Beat, Bernie or Biden? Why It Just Doesn’t Matter

c4eab421-2746-4428-9108-33f5d44be24a-AP_Election_2020_Trump

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump accused his Democratic critics of “politicizing” the coronavirus outbreak Friday as he rallied supporters in North Charleston a day before the Democratic primary in South Carolina.

Speaking at the North Charleston Coliseum for more than an hour, Trump dismissed the complaints from Democrats about his handling of the virus as “their new hoax” and insisted “we are totally prepared.” He also mocked the party for its chaotic efforts to determine the result of this month’s Iowa caucuses.

“Now the Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus,” Trump said, adding: “They can’t even count their votes.”

Speaking at length about the virus, Trump said it “starts in China, bleeds its way into various countries around the world, doesn’t spread widely at all in the United States because of the early actions” of his administration. But still, Trump argued, the Democrats are claiming that “it’s Donald Trump’s fault.”

Turning to the 2020 race, Trump took an informal poll of the crowd of who they would prefer he run against in November. The president argued that despite the many candidates still in the race, the fight for the Democratic nomination is really a two-man race between Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

“Who the hell is easier to beat?” Trump asked the crowd, going on to use nicknames “Crazy Bernie” for Sanders and “Sleepy Joe” for Biden.

“I don’t know, I think Crazy Bernie has it,” he said.

As he left the White House on Friday afternoon, the president said of the Democratic contest: “It’ll be very interesting to see what happens tomorrow.” Trump then referenced the Super Tuesday contests on March 3, saying: “On Tuesday, you have a very big day.”

While en route to South Carolina, Trump tweeted an announcement that he is nominating Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe to serve as Director of National Intelligence (DNI), months after the Republican lawmaker abruptly withdrew his name from consideration for the post.

Trump has held rallies in each of the four early voting states for the presidential nomination. He went to Nevada last week, even though Republicans had canceled their presidential caucus to show allegiance to the president. Likewise, South Carolina GOP officials opted not to hold a primary this year.

But that’s not stopping Trump, who has reveled in poking his challengers in the run-up to their contests.

“Some people say I’m trolling the Democrats and maybe I am,” Trump said at the White House.

Unlike the three earlier voting states, South Carolina is not considered a swing state. Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by more than 14 percentage points there in 2016.

Following Saturday’s contest, more than a dozen states vote in the Super Tuesday contests.

Trump arrived in South Carolina following a brutal week for the stock market. Stocks dropped another 357 points Friday, extending a rout that handed the market its worst week since October 2008, at the height of the financial crisis.

Analysts worry that the stock swoon could cause consumer spending to contract. Such spending makes up some 70 percent of the economy and has played a huge role in keeping the U.S. economic expansion going.

Trump has linked his presidency to the markets through tweets and speeches, often taking credit for each new high in the indices. Now, Trump is trying to reassure Americans that the economy is still strong while also theorizing that the Democratic candidates’ debate performances have spooked investors.

The coronavirus virus has infected more than 84,000 people globally and caused more than 2,800 deaths.

A lot of people say that Joe Biden will win the South Carolina Democrat Primary today.

I don’t care.

As Bill Murray so famously said in the movie “Meatballs,

“It just doesn’t matter!”

Be it Biden, Sanders, or a desperation candidate chosen at a brokered convention, the 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate has no chance of winning the Presidency.

Why?

Every single Democratic Candidate cares more for their failed political ideology than they do the average Americans Between the coasts, whom Hillary Clinton called “Deplorables”.

Just as Trump did, with his refusal early in his campaign to “act more presidential”, continues to take his message directly to the American People.

As opposed to the “Elite Democrats” running for their party’s Presidential Candidate Nomination, Trump has always been a “people person”.

That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.

As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.

“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.

He knew that the only way to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.

Just as President Trump did when he went on a “Thank You” Tour and as he continues with his Daily Tweets to the American People..

The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.

Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being used by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, the before-mentioned Ronald Wilson Reagan.

While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved effective for both men.

As the polls show, Trump continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living here in the part of America, which the snobbish Democrat Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.

The reason being, President Trump is keeping his promises.

President Trump has America’s Economy BOOMING!

Also…

He does not talk down to us while disparaging our Sovereign Nation, as the Democrats running in the Primary do.

Trump talks to us in a plain-spoken, clearly understood way, a style which is in stark contrast to an opposition party full of professional politicians, whose only interest is the regaining of power in Washington, D.C., at whatever the cost.

Last night, the President of the United States of America, the most powerful man in the world, made South Carolinians feel good about themselves and their role in determining the future of our country.

They heard these words of hope and encouragement from a man who genuinely LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes…the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

And, that, fellow Americans, is why President Trump will be reelected.

Until He Comes,

A Marxist is the Democratic Primary Frontrunner, is This Just “Politics” or is it About “Princes and Principalities”?

flag-and-cross

How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin. – President Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., sent out a series of tweets to celebrate his projected victory in the Nevada caucuses Saturday and urged his supporters to keep the momentum going.

“We just won the Nevada caucus. This grassroots movement is unstoppable,” he began. “Together, let’s win the Democratic nomination, defeat Trump and transform the country! Join us live in San Antonio:”

The Vermont progressive made a prediction that his campaign would sweep the rest of the primaries and caucuses nationwide.

“Our multiracial, multigenerational movement is not only going to win in Nevada. It is going to sweep this country,” he said.

As of Saturday evening, Sanders led the other 2020 presidential candidates with 53.84 percent of the vote in the Nevada caucuses. Joe Biden was in a distant second with a little over 17 percent, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., sat in third place with just over 10 percent at the time of publication.

His win also drew the attention of President Trump, who tweeted about Sanders on Saturday night, telling him to guard his victory closely.

“Looks like Crazy Bernie is doing well in the Great State of Nevada,” Trump wrote. “Biden & the rest look weak, & no way Mini Mike can restart his campaign after the worst debate performance in the history of Presidential Debates. Congratulations Bernie, & don’t let them take it away from you!”

If you would have told me back in 1980, as I cast my very first vote as a young adult for Ronald Wilson Reagan, that 40 years later a cotton-pickin’ Communist would be the Democratic Frontrunner in their Primary Elections, I would have accused you of being stoned out of your ever-loving mind.

Now look at our Sovereign Nation.

This country has been pulling apart at the seams since the night of November 8, 2016, when Donald J. Trump was elected as our 45th President.

And the thing is, it is not his fault.

The direction which the Modern Democratic Party has taken to the Far Left of the Political Spectrum has put them at odds with the majority of Americans who still hold dear the Traditional Faith and Values System upon which our Sovereign Nation was founded.

Looking back on yesterday’s Nevada Caucus, Democratic Leaders and their minions in the Main Stream Media simply have underestimated the damage which they have done under the guise of a Nation Educational System which has taught a whole generation that it was cool to hate an honest day’s work, individual freedom, American Patriotism, and the economic system known as Capitalism, which has made America a world leader.

The rise of Antifa and the rest of the “Wokesheviks” is a direct result of Far Left Liberal Programming, accomplished in our schools and universities by members of the Democratic Party.

And now, even the Democratic Elite have to admit that it is very apparent that there is something that is literally tearing apart the fabric of our country….and their allegiance to a failed political philosophy and their unbridled lust for political power has caused this out-of-control situation which they find themselves in, with an admitted Marxist on a path to be their 2020 Presidential Candidate.

The only conclusion that I, as a Christian American can reach, is the fact that our Sovereign Nation is in the midst of SPIRITUAL WARFARE for its very soul.

Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.

My friends, I believe that we are fighting a war against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics are increasingly being accepted as normal behavior.

We see it everyday around us.

It inundates the cable news channels, 24 hours a day. Heck, you can even see it on Facebook.

Since Cain slew Able with a rock, mankind, because we are all fallen creatures, has had to deal with the presence of evil in our lives.

From the legendary massacres, perpetrated by Vlad the Impaler, to the horrific scenes of Hitler’s Concentration Camps, to the killing fields of Pol Pot, to the massacre of innocent Middle Eastern Christians by Islamic State, to the murders by Chicago Street Gangs every night, the Forces of Evil continue to flourish across the globe.

Who we as a nation are struggling with are those forces who want to turn our country into not just an immoral society, but, an amoral one, whose concept of right and wrong is “Whatever Gets You Through the Night (It’s Alright. It’s Alright.” (ask Mayor Pete) and whose ultimate authority is not the God of Abraham, but a Godless All-Powerful Central Government, whose credo is

From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. (Karl Marx)

Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, so would it fail here.

Just as amorality and licentiousness led to the destruction of the Roman Empire, so, if allowed to do so, would it lead to America’s.

The galling thing is the fact that, even though American Christians remain 75% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed by the Liberals in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.

It is this New Generation of Amoral Socialists, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.

So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?

As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.

However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”. I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.

10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12

Our Christianity as Americans does not and can not end at Noon on Sunday, as we shake the Preacher’s hand and walk out of the sanctuary.

As every Christian knows, the Triune God dwells within each of us, in the form of that “still, small voice”, the Holy Spirit.

And, we must allow that “still, small voice” to accompany us to the voting booth next November.

Christians have to make a choice in these tough times.

The choice we each have to make is whether to “give to Caesar” that which is not his, our Christian Faith, or to listen to that “still, small voice” and decide which candidates will best serve and protect our Sovereign Nation and its citizenry from our enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC.

This is not just a “Political Choice” which we as Christian Americans are facing right now.

As I wrote earlier, America is in the midst of a battle of “Princes and Principalities”.

By now. you’re probably asking, “So what’s the point of all this, KJ?”

We are given free will by our Creator…will to make choices and decisions on the direction of our lives. Being human, we often don’t make the right decisions and being human, those decisions have the potential to lead us down a dark path.

Whether it is in reality or strictly in the close quarters of our own consciousness, the path we choose to follow is up to us. However, our parents, family, and friends can make a difference in our journey and I thank God that through His Grace I was given a Father who made sure that I received loving instruction in The Way in which I should go.

We still live in the greatest country on the face of the earth and we still have a responsibility to one another and to those who have gone before us, risking their very lives to secure our freedom.

The Light or the Darkness. The choice is up to each and every one of us.

Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:14 (ESV)

And, I stand with the King of Kings.

You see, gentle readers, I’ve read the back of The Book.

The Good Guys win.

Between now and November, be thinking and praying about the direction which you would have America take in the future.

Do you want us to be “One Nation under God” or “The Tower of Babel”?

Also, as you go about your day today, remember, that we have an Advocate, in Jesus Christ the Righteous, and, He is in our corner.

So, take that “little light” of yours, and let it shine.

God Bless.

Until He Comes,

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., disavowed alleged Russian efforts to help his campaign Friday after The Washington Post reported that U.S. officials have determined Moscow is attempting to interfere in the Democratic primary race on his behalf.

“I don’t care, frankly, who [Russian President Vladimir] Putin wants to be president,” Sanders said in a statement. “My message to Putin is clear: stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”

According to the Post, officials have told the Sanders campaign that Russia is working to boost the socialist as part of an effort to meddle in the Democratic presidential primary. The story, citing people familiar with the matter, said President Trump and lawmakers on Capitol Hill have also been informed of the Russian attempts.

“In 2016, Russia used Internet propaganda to sow division in our country, and my understanding is that they are doing it again in 2020,” Sanders said Friday. “Some of the ugly stuff on the Internet attributed to our campaign may well not be coming from real supporters.”

Ahead of a rally Friday in California, Sanders was questioned by reporters about the news, saying in a video posted on Twitter by a CNN reporter he was briefed on the Russian interference attempts “about a month ago.”

Asked why the news of the briefing is only coming out now, Sanders replied: “I’ll let you guess,” adding that it’s “one day before the Nevada caucus.”

“Why do you think it came out? It was the Washington Post,” said Sanders, who has sharply criticized the paper’s owner, Jeff Bezos. “Good friends.”

Meanwhile, Mike Bloomberg’s campaign for president had some fun at the expense of Sanders tweeting a message in Russian, which roughly translates to “feel the burn.”

Late Thursday, The New York Times reported that intelligence officials told lawmakers in a classified briefing last week that Russia is meddling with the hope of getting President Trump reelected. But Trump has pushed back against the reports, claiming Democrats were pushing a “misinformation campaign” in the hope of politically damaging him.

On Friday, Trump’s campaign spokesman, Tim Murtaugh, tweeted: “We condemn and reject foreign interference in American elections in any form.”

Sanders, though, accused the Trump administration of not standing against Russia’s efforts.

“Unlike Donald Trump, I do not consider Vladimir Putin a good friend,” Sanders said. “He is an autocratic thug who is attempting to destroy democracy and crush dissent in Russia.”

“Let’s be clear,” Sanders added, “the Russians want to undermine American democracy by dividing us up and, unlike the current president, I stand firmly against their efforts and any other foreign power that wants to interfere in our election.”

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday that the newest allegations are “paranoid reports that, unfortunately, there will be more and more of as we get closer to the elections [in the U.S.]. Of course, they have nothing to do with the truth.”

U.S. intelligence agencies say Russia interfered in the 2016 election through social media campaigns and by stealing and distributing emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. Intelligence officials say Russia was trying to boost Trump’s campaign and show chaos within the American political process.

“Intelligence officials”?

You mean like Former CIA Director and Trump Hatting Muslim John Brennan?

Fuhgedaboutit!

The Russia Collusion Delusion has already been debunked and now, so has the new New York Times story with current Intelligence Officials telling CBS News Reporter (formerly of Fox News) Catherine Herridge that there is no accumulated data to back up the claim.

Even Jake Tapper of CNN called the new claim of Russian Interference on behalf of Trump “FAKE NEWS”.

it is, however, very believable that Russia would attempt to help avowed Marxist Bernie Sanders to win the Democratic Candidacy and then the Presidency in 2020.

On February 26, 2018, FoxNews.com reported that

Sen. Bernie Sanders has seemingly struggled to address recent allegations that Russia’s campaign to interfere in the 2016 presidential election included a plan to boost his Democratic primary campaign. 

For well over a year, it was alleged that Moscow’s meddling mainly was meant to boost now-President Trump and harm then-Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. 

A bombshell Feb. 16 indictment filed against 13 Russian nationals in Robert Mueller’s Russia probe bolstered those allegations, in stunning detail — but also said the Russians sought to help Sanders. 

Russian nationals, the indictment said, “engaged in operations primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about Hillary Clinton, to denigrate other candidates such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump.” 

The details create an awkward situation for the Vermont senator, as he is seen to be positioning himself for a potential 2020 White House run. 

Sanders, however, has yet to give a clear response on whether he and his campaign were aware of, or took action to address, the interference — like Russian bot social media accounts allegedly supporting his campaign. Instead, Sanders, I-Vt., has tried to shift the scrutiny toward Clinton’s campaign for not doing more to prevent Russian meddling.

“The real question to be asked is what was the Clinton campaign [doing about Russian interference]? They had more information about this than we did,” Sanders said in an interview last week with Vermont Public Radio. “They were supporting my campaign? No. They were attacking Hillary Clinton’s campaign and using my supporters against Hillary Clinton.”

I mean, after all, Bernie did have contacts in Moscow.

According to the Liberal Website TheWeek.com, in an article posted on June 19, 2015, in which they brought up his 1988 honeymoon with his wife Jane in the former Soviet Union.

The honeymoon doubled as a diplomatic trip that Sanders made to the city of Yaroslavl, 160 miles northwest of Moscow, when he was the mayor of Burlington, Vermont. According to audio that survived the trip:After receiving a rundown of central planning, Soviet-style, from Yaroslavl’s mayor, Alexander Riabkov, Sanders notes how the quality of both housing and healthcare in America appeared to be “significantly better” than in the communist state. “However,” he added, “the cost of both services is much, much, higher in the United States.” [The Guardian]

Another highlight of Sanders’ mayoralty was the ode to socialism that was written for him by poet Allen Ginsberg.

Entitled Burlington Snow, it begins with lines about “Socialist snow on the streets” and “Socialist kids sucking socialist lollipops” and ends: “Isn’t this poem socialist? It doesn’t belong to me anymore.” [The Guardian]

Shortly before the 2016 Presidential Election, Bernie Sanders sold out his Millennial Followers by bowing out of the race and throwing his support to Hillary.

Coincidence? I think not.

The thing is, I would be willing to bet that Bernie knows just as much as the Queen of Mean about those Russian Contributions…and he was perfectly fine with them at the time, as she and the entire Clinton Foundation Money Laundering Operation were.

And, as a part of the deal Bernie made with Hillary to “bow out graciously and give her his support” was that neither of them would rat on the other.

His contrived cluelessness about the situation at the time of the report was nothing but the usual BS put out by a Professional Politician desperately attempting to save his hindquarters.

So, boys and girls, the question is…

Are we now, on the road to the 2020 Presidential Elections, experiencing Bernie/Russians Election Interference Deja Vu?

Hmmm…could be.

WikiLeaks Reveals Romantic Triangle: Millinneals Loved Bernie, Bernie Loved Hillary, Bernie Sold Out Millennials

Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated. – Will Rogers

Foxnews.com reports that

AMES, Iowa –  Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders narrowly finished second this winter in the state’s Democratic caucuses, then left Iowa in a February snowstorm as a contender. He returned Saturday on a warm autumn day to Iowa State University as a surrogate, offering his young, fervent supporters a more difficult pitch — vote for Hillary Clinton.  

Some of his devotees remain unconvinced, even those the Clinton campaign selected to speak at this Clinton campaign event.

“She doesn’t care about us. Voting for a lesser of two evils, there’s no point,” Kaleb Van Fosson, a sophomore and Sanders supporter, said to the small crowd.

After drawing light applause, Clinton campaign staff quickly escorted Van Fosson from the stage, as he criticized Clinton for her ties to financial institutions.

“I got a call the other day asking me if I wanted to speak for Hillary, basically they wanted to use me like a puppet,” Van Fosson told Fox News. “Trump’s not any better, but Hillary Clinton is still terrible.”

Others in attendance agreed with Van Fosson, though most in the crowd appeared supportive of the Democratic nominee.

“He’s made it evidently clear that Hillary Clinton is the right choice and over the summer,” said Devon Graham, a local Sanders supporter.  “I went fully behind Hillary and I’m really excited for her as a candidate but also excited that Bernie is supporting her as well.”

Sanders used much of his speech to bring attention to his signature issues — corporate oversight, climate change and income inequality. In endorsing Clinton, he acknowledged those who dislike both nominees.

“Get beyond personality,” he told the crowd. “Alright, you don’t like Hillary Clinton, you don’t like Donald Trump fine. You like yourselves. I hope so, if that means taking a hard look at the issues the candidates stand for. We’re not running here for class president of the local high school. This is not a popularity contest. We are electing the most powerful individual in the world.”

Yet many still see Clinton’s positions as too centrist and her remarks to Wall Street firms, provided by WikiLeaks, too deferential to financial firms’ interests.

“This is home of rural populism and it manifests in very different ways on theft and the right,” said Rachel Caufield, an associate professor of political science at Drake University in Des Moines. 

“On the left if manifests as a distrust of corporations and economic power. And Hillary Clinton’s message isn’t resonating with those folks in the same way that say Barack Obama’s did.  You still have a lot of those folks who were diehard Bernie supporters who will continue to be Bernie supporters and they’re not sure that Hillary Clinton embraces some of the ideological positions that they want to see in their Democratic Party.”

Clinton trails Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, in Iowa by less than 3 percentage points, according to an average of polls provided by Real Clear Politics.

The latest state-provided returns show Iowa Democrats and Republicans have submitted fewer absentee ballots than they did by the same point in 2012. Thus far, Republicans have returned a larger share of ballots, and Democrats a smaller percentage than they did in the last presidential election year. 

As of Friday, 238,029 Democrats and 196,611 Republicans had submitted ballots, according to the Iowa secretary of state. 

While the Clinton campaign relies on surrogates such as Sanders and the Obamas to coax their supporters to the polls, Clinton herself maintains a stead attack on her opponent.

“Among most Democrats, the strongest case she’s making right now is that she’s not Donald Trump,” Caufield said.

Nor is she Sanders. 

“I’ve been to eight of his last 12 events, and the Bernie merchandise sells a lot better than the Hillary,” said Daniel Richards, a campaign merchandise salesman from Springfield Illinois, as he unloaded a stack of Sanders T-shirts from his van. 

“This was the number one seller at the Democratic convention,” Richards also said as he presented a green “It’s always Bernie in Philadelphia” shirt.

Speaking of selling …Bernie Sanders sold his sycophants out.

According to heatstreet.com,

Emails published by WikiLeaks suggest that Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders had a secret “agreement” during the Democratic primary.

In a May 2015 email exchange, top Clinton campaign aides discussed “Sanders criticism” after Hillary’s primary opponent attacked the Clintons over their extreme wealth by suggesting that they “hustle money.”

When asked about the Clintons’ wealth during an interview with CNBC, Sanders had some harsh words:

Theoretically you can be a multibillionaire and in fact be very concerned about the issues of working people. Theoretically that’s true. When you hustle money like that, you don’t sit in restaurants like this. You sit in restaurants where you spend, I don’t know what they spend, hundreds of dollars for dinner and so forth. That’s the world you are accustomed to. And that’s the worldview that you adopt. I’m not going to condemn Hillary and Bill Clinton because they’ve made a lot of money. That type of wealth has the potential to isolate you from the reality of the world.

Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook emailed campaign chairman John Podesta to express his displeasure with Sanders’ remarks, and suggested that Sanders had violated an “agreement” of some kind between the campaigns.

“This isn’t in keep [with] the agreement,” Mook wrote. “Since we clearly have some leverage, would be good to flag this for him. I could send a signal via Welch–or did you establish a direct line [with] him?”

The “Welch” referred to here is presumably Rep. Peter Welch (D., Vt.), one of the first Democratic lawmakers to publicly endorse Sanders.

For the past 7 years, Barack Hussein Obama has been promising “Hope and change”, through his unceasing rhetoric of Class Warfare, Racial Animus, and “Sharing the Wealth”.

His promises have proven to be as empty as our pocketbooks.

Almost 95,000,000 Americans are now out of our workforce, having given up ever being able to find a job.

And, then, you have those Americans who never wanted to work for their money in the first place.

Bernie Sanders, “Evangelist” of the failed political ideology of Marxism, member of the rapidly-tanking American Political Party known as “Democrats”,  basically appealed to the collegiate and “slacker” vote, the MTV Generation, still living in Mom’s Basement, who salivate over the vision of “money for nothing and their chicks for free”.

The Socialist Paradise, which Bernie Sanders offered Millennials, is nothing new.

Ask the countries of Venezuela and Greece, as they burn to the ground, their hopes and dreams piled on top of a “Democratic Socialist” Pyre of their own making.

As we enter the last two days before the most important Presidential Election in our lifetime, it would be wise for those voters who still want to “#FeelTheBern” to remember the words of a great World Leader, Sir Winston Churchill, who, as Prime Minister, led Great Britain though the Fight Against Fascism during World War II, when he said,

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. 

What Bernie’s collective hive-mind of group-thinking followers never seemed to grasp was the reality that Marxism has NEVER worked, anywhere that it has been tried.

Man’s own greed and corruption, as in the case of the old Russian Politboro, and Bernie Sanders, himself, always gets in the way of their dream for a Socialist Utopia.

That is the reason that Marxism remains a THEORY…and a failed one, at that.

The news potentially isn’t all bad for ol’ Bernie are the Democratic Party goes down in flame next Tuesday, though.

Perhaps, they will make a remake of “Back to the Future”.

He’s a dead ringer for Doc Emmett Brown.
