Bernie 2

I’m pretty sure it will come as a surprise to no one, other than apparently those residing there in his home state of Vermont, that Bernie Sanders has long been little more than your very typical communist, although he obviously prefers to go by the moniker of “socialist.”  And while Sanders’ relationship with the former Soviet Union is fairly well known, including the fact that he and his wife honeymooned there, it’s the extent of that relationship that may still surprise a few.  It’s a relationship that is revealed in hours of video that Politico has viewed and also reported on that shows Sanders connection to ‘Russia’ has gone on for more than 30 years.

Politico reported:

“The mood is festive as the two bestow the items: A Beatles album, a red “Bernie for Burlington” button, “delicious Vermont candy” and a tape of tunes Sanders recorded himself with fellow artists from Vermont, among other goodies.

“I have met many fine mayors in the United States,” Sanders says, “but I want to say that one of the nicest mayors I’ve ever met is the mayor of Yaroslavl.”

At another point, a member of Sanders’ delegation hands a Russian woman a small American flag. “If you’re wondering what’s wrong with capitalism, it’s made in Hong Kong,” he jokes. “Sorry about that.”

Some of the footage has already gone viral after someone who works at a Chittenden County, Vermont television station posted a few minutes of the video online.  Politico reported, “The clip featured a shirtless Sanders and other Americans singing ‘This Land Is Your Land’ to their hosts after relaxing in a sauna.  A few minutes later, Sanders doled out the gifts to his Russian friends with a towel wrapped around his waist.”   The video footage also shows Sanders sitting with his U.S. delegation at a table beneath a portrait of Vladimir Lenin, you’ll remember that he was the ruthless dictator responsible for the deaths of millions of his own people.

Politico also reported that Sanders’ goal was to develop a “sister city” relationship between Burlington, Vermont, where he was mayor, and Yarolavl, a city on the edge of the Volga River.  It was in a speech he gave while in Yarolavl that Sanders said, “By encouraging citizen-to-citizen exchanges — of young people, artists and musicians, business people, public officials, and just plain ordinary citizens, we can break down the barriers and stereotypes which exist between the Soviet Union and the United States.”  I guess I’d be curious to know just what barriers and supposed stereotypes old Bernie might have been talking about then, and if still feels the same way today.

Politico made the point that Sanders was worried about a nuclear war between the U.S. and the Soviet Union saying, “The video also paints a fuller picture of why Sanders ventured to the land of America’s No. 1 enemy in the midst of the Cold War, the anti-war idealism that fueled his journey, and what he found when he got there.”  The news outlet also reported the video includes images of “shrines to Lenin” and shows scenes of the poverty in the Soviet Union, including people waiting in food lines and shabby housing.  Both of which are something Sanders apparently still wishes to bring to America if, God forbid, Americans are stupid enough to elect him.

But look, even with all that being said I would argue that with today’s Democrat Party having now moved so far to the left it’s just this sort of revelation that could very well end up providing old Bernie with a rather sizable bump that just might allow him to pull ahead of ‘Creepy Joe’ Biden in the polls.  Bernie has been unable to make much headway since proclaiming himself to be millionaire because his rather juvenile constituents hate that fact. And I find it all rather hard to fathom how it is that these two losers, one of whom is a ‘Commie’ and the other a ‘Perv’, are actually considered as being legitimate presidential contenders in the Democrat Party .

I think we can all agree that Sanders is really a “socialist” in pretty much name only.  He has always been a committed supporter of Communism.  He is a dyed in the wool communist, now, then and always.   And I must say that I am more than a little disappointed in those of my fellow Americans who are somehow able to view someone like Bernie as being in any way fit to hold the office of president.  But then I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised, after all, these folks represent what has become the product of our public education system.  And its our so-called institutions of ‘higher’ learning that pick up the indoctrination process where our public schools leave off.

Is anyone actually surprised by these revelations?! I think not! Will they hurt Bernie’s 2020 chances? Doubtful! The American education system has successfully managed to indoctrinate our children to the extent that they think socialism is the ‘promised land’ where everyone is equal and we all sing inspiring songs as we toil away at slave wages. Yes, while the elite continue to enrich themselves at the expense of the workers.  Funny how that works! You don’t have to take my word for it, there have been numerous examples over the course of the last 100 years right up to present day, just do a little research.  Yes, socialism, the first step to totalitarianism!

But let’s just cut to the chase, shall we?  Democrat leadership has been closely aligned with socialists/communists for decades.  Democrats have spent those very same decades in a very determined effort to rewrite history erasing those pesky historical facts and to literally whitewash their duplicity in the spread of this blight, but the facts remain. Communism robs the people of their dignity, freedom, creativity, inventiveness and their ability to worship.  Bernie is little more than a cheerleader for a system of governance that crushes people’s souls. He wants unlimited power. Why else would anyone believe Communism is the way to go?

And so it’s with each passing election that this country becomes increasingly more dangerous, and it will only become more so the more we have Democrats who are able to get themselves elected.  Look, we all know their agenda is one where the government: becomes in charge of what healthcare we are able to obtain, does away completely with our borders allowing in anyone who wants to come here, seeks to severely restrict, if not eliminate completely, our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, to name just a few of those things that they would seek in implement if we are ever again foolish enough to grant them the power to do so.



I can’t help but wonder how many of those now cheering the fact that Bernie has once again decided to throw his hat in the presidential ring have bothered to take any amount of time to look beyond all of his promises of ‘free’ and at the rather bizarre history of the man.  After all, he is running to be the president of our country.  I only ask because it was back in 1985 that old Bernie actually praised countries where people “line up for food,” calling breadlines a “good thing.”  Now personally I would think that that might kind of depend on whether you were one of those in line or not.

The video of Bernie making those comments resurfaced on Tuesday after he had announced that he’s running for president in 2020. In the interview from the mid-1980s, Bernie was asked about breadlines in Nicaragua and his support for the socialist Sandinistas who ruled the country at the time.  He said, “You know, it’s funny, sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is because people are lining up for food.”  He added, “That’s a good thing. In other countries people don’t line up for food. The rich get the food, and the poor starve to death.”

Sanders’s presidential campaign will be his second bid for the White House, after losing his Democrat primary bid to Hitlery in 2016. Still, despite losing, Bernie said that his more progressive stances helped push the Democrat Party further to the left in the two years following his loss. It was in an interview just last year that Bernie said, “I can tell you very happily, and I think any objective observer would confirm what I’m saying, is that in the last year and half or so, the Democratic Party has moved in a far more progressive direction than they were before I ran for president.”

In an email to supporters on Tuesday morning, Bernie announced that he will be resurrecting many of the positions he ran on in 2016.  He wrote, “Our campaign is about transforming our country and creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial, and environmental justice.”  Bernie has campaigned on Medicare for All and a $15 minimum wage in the past.  I think this time around it will be safe to assume that all manner of ‘free’ stuff will be offered, not only by Bernie, but by all of those who will be running under the ‘Democrat’ banner.

Regarding ‘free’ stuff, of those who have already made their intentions known, regarding 2020, all have made it quite clear that they are not going to be the least bit shy about offering to any of those willing to vote for them everything including the kitchen sink.  The Democrat motto for the coming election will likely be. “Free, Free, Free, and even more Free!”  I have no doubt that what we’re about to see from the Democrats will be an all-out competition to see who it is that offer the most ‘free’ stuff to the most people in their effort to become the next president.

As for Bernie, he has long been identified as a Democratic Socialist, drawing praise from the more progressive wing of the Democrat Party, including from presidential candidate Peter Buttigieg, now the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who wrote a prize-winning essay in high school praising Bernie for his “energy, candor, conviction, and ability to bring people together to stand against the current of opportunism, moral compromise, and partisanship which runs rampant on the American political scene.”  Last time Buttigieg chose to support Hitlery, maybe this time he’ll feel the ‘Bern.’


Sanders 1

Well it would appear that that whiny, senile old socialist, who spent his honeymoon in the Soviet Union, bent over for the woman, in exchange for hush money, who stole the nomination away from him, and who will be 80 years old, when and if he wins, wants yet another shot at the White House.  And so it was then, that on just this past Tuesday, on “CBS This Morning,” Bernie Sanders, self-proclaimed Socialist, announced his intentions to run for president in 2020.  Go for it, Bernie, we need a good laugh.

Sanders said this time his campaign would win and named defeating President Trump as being the motivating factor in announcing his bid.  Speaking with co-host John Dickerson, Bernie said,   “It is absolutely imperative that Donald Trump be defeated because I think it is unacceptable and un-American, to be frank with you, that we have a president who is a pathological liar and it gives me no pleasure to say that, but it’s true.”  Imperative for whom, exactly, socialist loving scumbags like old Bernie?

Bernie went on to say, “We have a president who is a racist, who is a sexist, who is a xenophobe, who is doing what no president in our lifetimes has come close to do doing, and that is trying to divide us up.”  The self-proclaimed socialist from Vermont said he would make raising the minimum wage, free healthcare, and free college education all part of his 2020 bid.  So once again it would appear that Bernie’s intent here is to see just how much free stuff it’ll take to get folks to vote for him.

Bernie said, “All of those ideas people were saying, ‘Oh Bernie, they’re so radical. They are extreme. The American people just won’t accept those ideas.’”  And he went on to say, “Well, you know what’s happened in over three years?  All of those ideas and many more are now part of the political mainstream.”  Look, just because such things are talked about by his friends on the left and are the topic of discussion in the ‘fake news’ media, they’re still a far cry from being in the “mainstream.”

Thus far into the process the Democrats have cobbled together quite the assortment of shallow thinkers, illegals, brainwashed minorities, indoctrinated college kids who think Socialism is great, and ‘fake news’ types as their main voting bloc.  Imagine the damage that could be done to this country by any candidate elected by this idiotic conglomeration of losers.   Sadly it’s each coming election that will prove to be even more critical than the one before if we are to have any luck maintaining our freedom.

The goal of those on the left that now seem to be in near complete control of the Democrat Party is to construct a future where we have a ruling class that essentially steals from the working class, keeps most of it for themselves and then spreads around the rest until everyone is equally miserable and destitute.  And so far the 2020 Democrat line up has a Booker, a Hooker, a fake Indian and now a ’60’s hippie.  Is this really the crowd from which anyone can comfortably select a president?  REALLY?

Am I the only one ever to wonder why it is that the Democrats continue to be referred to as “progressive” when their proposals represent only a regression of society to the point where we will all live in caves in the cold and the dark?  The 2020 election will be a choice between Socialism and Capitalism, if you think life is free and somebody else needs to pay for it then Bernie’s your guy. If you think you have a right to succeed without government interference then the only sensible choice is President Trump.

Bernie is a Barry ‘O’ redux. He wants to ‘fundamentally transform’ the country into something it was never meant to be. Anyone who loves our country would not want to transform it into another socialist shithole. Bernie’s brain is so far off the beaten path he’s whistling in the wind. Same thing applies to all the other Democrats. They all want Socialism and a compliant society that is forced to rely on government for its existence from cradle to grave. Let’s deep six the notion of Socialism once and for all.


Bernie 15

While I don’t want to sound too gleeful about any potential prospects, it would seem that many on the Democrat side may have been, perhaps, just a bit too quick to make their predictions regarding how it was going to be the Republican convention which was destined to be little more than a political free for all.  Because as the Democrat Party primary process continues to lurch along, it’s beginning to look more and more like the gathering in Philadelphia will be far more ‘entertaining’ to watch that will be the gathering in Cleveland.

It wasn’t all that long ago that no matter where one happened to look you saw gleeful Democrats almost salivating over what was then predicted to be a party splitting brokered Republican convention and the mess that it was likely to produce.  But fast forward only a couple of months and it would appear that it’s now the Democrats who may, in fact, end up with having a much bigger mess to deal with.  Which is a bit uncharacteristic for Democrats, since they’re usually pretty quick to fall in line behind the chosen candidate.

And who knows, that may yet happen but I must admit that their current situation is becoming rather interesting, besides being quite entertaining, to watch to say the least.  And I can’t help but wonder how many Democrats out there are now kicking themselves in the butt for not running and how many are having second thoughts about their front-runner.  And while I am not a Democrat, I thought it pretty bizarre that the party was so quick to settle on Hitlery as their first choice.  But in a sense I’m glad they did.

And with Bernie now warning that he fully intends on taking his campaign all the way to the July convention in Philadelphia, even if he’s trailing Hitlery in pledged delegates, rumor has it that Democrats are growing increasingly fearful that the melee that occurred in Nevada could very well be repeated just as the party is struggling to unite after a rather ‘spirited’ primary.  Democrat Senator ‘Little Dick’ Durbin of Illinois said “of course” he’s concerned that the same tactics would be replicated in Philadelphia.

It was during an interview in the Capitol that ‘Little Dick’ said, “We saw what happened at the Trump rallies, which broke into violence, people punching one another. I don’t want to see that happen at the Democratic Party.”  And he went on to say, “I call on Bernie to say to his supporters: be fervent, be committed but be sensible. Don’t engage in any violence.”  Top Democrats now say that it will be incumbent upon Bernie to make sure his supporters come into the fold, if he’s not wanting to risk electing Trump.

And then it was fellow Democrat, and Hitlery supporter, Jeanne Shaheen who said she has never before dealt with more aggressive supporters than Sanders’ voters.  She said, “It’s been interesting to me because I’ve never experienced that before and I’ve been involved in every presidential campaign since 1976.”  And she added, “We’ve had lots of people who have supported different candidates, and I’ve never seen that kind of behavior before.”  Really?  Because I seem to recall seeing just this kind of behavior from the left on more than one occasion.

Shaheen recalled an event days before the New Hampshire primary in February when Sanders supporters were “very aggressive,” “heckling me and others as we spoke.”  She said, “That has never happened before.”  She added, “In this campaign, (Sanders) has gotten a lot of people engaged, he should be able to go through the primaries as he’s committed to do — Hillary Clinton did that in 2008.”  She said, “Hopefully, once the nomination is done, then he will endorse the nominee.”  I don’t know about that, old Bernie seems to be pretty determined.

You know, it’s pretty sad state of affairs for the Democrats when the best presidential candidates they could muster up are the career criminal, Hitlery Clinton, and the admitted Communist, Bernie Sanders.  And they are now shooting at each other to drive one lethal and perverse ideology over the other.  The level of hatred and contempt the Democrats harbor for America truly knows no bounds. We need a wall not only to keep illegal aliens out but to protect normal people from the far left extremists in the Democrat Party.

But still I gotta tell ya, if I was a Bernie supporter and had watched him win primary after primary only to then see Hitlery get handed the nomination, I would be pissed me off too!  But since I’m a big believer in karma, I would be the last one to wish ill on the Democrats as they seek to come together at their convention out of fear that ours would become the circus that everyone ends up laughing at.  But that said, it wouldn’t exactly break my heart if after all their badmouthing about our candidate they were made to squirm a little.


Bernie Tax Plan

It would seem that 2016 Democrat presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders‘ has quite the economically destructive tax plan in mind.  One which has been, and continues to be, the subject of much conversation across the country.  But now that he seems to be gaining some level of traction in the polls it might behoove the rest of us to start taking a look at exactly what he has in mind.  And we should start by asking, “What would it mean for my paycheck if this boob actually manages to get himself elected?”  And while this self-described Socialist said his economic proposals would provide free college, Medicare for all and a slew of other new welfare programs, the cost of his grand expansion of government would likely be far steeper than he’s letting on.

Bernie has said that moving people out of poverty is absolutely crucial for the success of our country.  And he seems quite comfortable with taxing Americans from top to bottom in order to carry out his plan. Indeed, with Bernie in the White House, every income bracket – including even the lowest bracket – would lose at least 7 percent off of their weekly take home pay.  Gee, what a deal!  Just when we thought it had gotten just about as bad as it could possibly get with Barry in the White house, along comes Bernie who would make matters even worse.  So why allow us to keep anything of what we work for?  It would seem that instead of moving more people out of poverty, Bernie’s objective here would be to move far more people INTO poverty.

Anyway, Scott Greenberg is an analyst at the Tax Foundation, which is, I’m told, a nonpartisan Washington, D.C.-based think tank.  And it was Mr. Greenberg who recently took a closer look at exactly what Bernie is proposing here, and in so doing he focused on a hypothetical single filer with no children using the standard deductions.  And what he found was that in the bottom 10 percent of earners, an American making $18,870 a year would see a $45 drop – or, 7.3 percent reduction – bringing their paycheck from $616 down to $571 every other week.  An individual in the lower-middle income range taking in $23,430 would take a 7.6 percent hit, with them seeing their checks falling from $751 to $694 every other week.

And then he found that someone like myself, a middle-income earner now taking in $36,200 a year – placing those like me in 50th percentile, when looking at 2015’s wage data, I could expect to see an 8 percent reduction, with my bi-weekly income slumping from $1,131 down to $1,040.  And it would be those who are in the 75th percentile, with an annual salary of $58,900, who would be hit with a 7.9 percent reduction in the amount they are allowed to take home.  And I can only assume that Bernie is under the impression that most Americans will be more than happy to hand over to our increasingly wasteful government even more of our hard-earned money.  This is nothing less than sheer socialist madness!

And as expected it’s the high-income earners who are set to be hit the hardest, with Americans with an annual salary of $92,110 seeing their checks fall from $2,609 to $2,391 – a whopping 8.3 percent, or $218, drop in their bi-weekly pay.  Those in the highest income bracket, which is not reflected in the graphic at the top of this post, would face a colossal 17.91 percent reduction in annual income due to additional taxes placed on top earners.  It never fails how socialists like Bernie have very little trouble when it comes to ridiculing supply-side economics. That idea being that with a lower tax burden and increased investment, business can produce (or supply) more, increasing employment as well as boosting worker pay.

But the socialist model is, as we can very plainly see, is based more on the trickle up of poverty theory, focused on bring everyone down.  Mr. Greenberg said, “Crucially, these calculations do not take into account the effects of eliminating employer-sponsored health insurance, which would increase workers’ paychecks significantly.”  And he cautioned, adding numbers do reflect the 6.2 percent employer-side payroll tax, the 2.2 percent individual income surtax and the 0.2 percent employer and employee-side payroll taxes.  He said, “This is because there is no way to tell how much workers would value their new, federally provided health insurance under the Sanders plan, compared to their current health insurance from their employers.”

And still these numbers don’t fully depict how incomes would be affected by the projected, and rather significant, drain on the U.S. economy that Bernie’s plan is projected to cause.  Because according to those who are seen as being the experts in such matters, the GDP would drop by an estimated 9.5 percent, capital investment would plummet by around 18.6 percent, wages would be reduced by roughly 4.3 percent, and just under 6 Million more full-time jobs would be lost.  That’s according to the Tax Foundation’s analysis.  Also under Bernie’s proposal, all taxpayers would face a new 2.2 percent tax on income, and a 6.2 percent Social Security payroll tax would be applied to incomes over $250,000.

A financial transaction tax would also be put into place with rates of .5 percent on stock trades, 0.1 percent on bonds, and 0.005 percent on derivatives, which many economists say could hinder Americans from investing.  The death tax would also be increased, using graduated rates: 45 percent for estates worth $3.5 million or $7 million for couples, 50 percent for those valued between $10 million and $50 million, and 55 percent for those over the $50 million threshold. A new, additional 10 percent surtax would be imposed on any estate over $500 million, or $1 billion for couples. And oddly enough, it’s even some left-leaning economists who have now gone as far as to say Bernie’s plan for the economy is all “puppies and rainbows.”

It’s absolutely amazing how, that despite all the proof that should make it crystal clear how Bernie’s favored system of governance never works, there remains those people who think it’s the perfect solution for what ails America.  But all one has to do is it too look at any European country to see what an abysmal failure it is.  And if that isn’t enough, take a look at any big city here at home or any state that is under complete Democrat control.  And Hitlery isn’t all that different from Bernie, because Hitlery has said that it is her intent to raise taxes by $1 Trillion.  This is complete insanity and yet millions of Americans either don’t understand what’s being proposed here, or they simply don’t care, being blinded by the promises of all that ‘free stuff’.
