Could Bernie Win This Thing After All?

Original Article

Joe Biden leads most polls; Elizabeth Warren has sometimes been considered the real frontrunner; Pete Buttigieg is surging in Iowa. Where does that leave Bernie Sanders? I spoke with politics editor Ezekiel Kweku and senior writer Eric Levitz about whether the Vermont senator has been underestimated in recent weeks, and what his path to the nomination might look like. Ben: Just a few weeks ago, Bernie Sanders suffered a heart attack and told a reporter he’d be cutting back on his vigorous campaign schedule — a remark he quickly took back. Since then, he has shown no sign of physical

No, Bernie is going nowhere. Any publication with "New York" in the title is going to be a left wing propaganda outlet, as far as I can see. Perhaps there is something, maybe The New York Dog Show Schedule or something which isn't, but so far all of them are worthless, never worth bothering with.

You go, Bernie! This is your last rodeo, so you owe it to your supporters to run third party, after the democrats steal the nomination from you again! Do it! Don't be faint of heart, Bernie!

Bernie might win the dem nomination (seriously doubt it), but he most definitely won’t win The Big Enchilada. That’s going to PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP!

I got a text yesterday from the Bernie campaign asking me if I was with Bernie. So many ways to respond... I knew it was an auto text, but I returned a scathing reply, attempting to school anyone who would possibly read it, on the real intent of socialists like Bernie. Then, I demanded that they not contact me anymore. Last week, I got a text from the lying, stealing Congresscritter arm waving, same outfit different cover woman who claimed to be of Indian descent. I wonder why my phone carrier doesn't identify these texts as spam. Businesses ask you if they can send texts; government bullies should be required to do the same. Their texts are annoying as heck!

Bernie had a chance in 2016 but Hillary Clinton changed the rules and doused the 'Burn's' chances now he's just so much dead meat.

I absolutely refuse to vote for someone with ideologies that are parallel to the Socialist party. This is the party that Adolph Hitler belonged to and enough said.

Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg's success in recent polls suggests he has a big target on his back — one that, if not skillfully negotiated, could cost him the Democratic nomination. Buttigieg’s campaign is surging, just in time for Wednesday’s Democratic presidential primary debate in Atlanta. Once an obscure long shot, Buttigieg has wedged his way to the top of a field featuring Democratic candidates Vice President Joe Biden and Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Buttigieg is leading in the Iowa polls, with 25% of voters in one survey saying he’s their first choice for president. Since September

ATLANTA - As public impeachment hearings enter a second week, a majority of Americans have said their opinions on the impeachment of President Donald Trump were formed weeks ago, and many question whether anything will change when the process concludes. "I'm not a politician. I can't say that he should be removed, but he's guilty," Robin Walton told ABC News on her way to Sunday services at Ebenezer Baptist Church in downtown Atlanta. "You cannot extort or bribe a foreign government into getting dirt on a political opponent to sabotage our free elections." More than two-thirds of Americans in a

House Intelligence Committee member Mike Conaway, R-Texas, criticized Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., as Conaway completed his questioning of witnesses during Tuesday's impeachment inquiry hearing. Conaway made a "personal request" that Schiff clearly state the legal reasoning for keeping the Ukraine phone call whistleblower "immune" from testifying, even in a secure, closed-door environment that would protect his identity.

Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg's night-and-day campaigns in Iowa and South Carolina clearly show both why he's such a formidable opponent and also why he remains a longshot to win the nomination. In Iowa, he surged into first place after hitting Elizabeth Warren hard on how she would pay for her massive Medicare expansion. In South Carolina, he's navigating troubling accusations that his campaign grossly overstated black support for his sweeping platform for African Americans. Here's what it means in the short term. For the first time, he's going to have a target on his back when he walks onto the

FRESNO, Calif. – Police are investigating whether there's a connection between an increase in local gang activity and the shooting Sunday night that left four people dead and six wounded at a backyard football-watching party. Law enforcement officials are attempting to prevent retaliation after an attack by at least two unidentified assailants in a residence populated by members of the Southeast Asian Hmong community, who have a large representation in the part of Fresno where the shooting occurred. There have been no arrests and the gunmen remain on the loose, police said. Fresno Police Chief Andrew Hall said there were 16

Abrams is the 45-year-old former Democratic nominee for Georgia governor who lost a close race against Republican Gov. Brian Kemp in 2018.

Jimmie Akesson, the 40-year-old head of the Sweden Democrats, woke up on Friday to news that his party was now polling as the country’s biggest. At 24%, it’s a few percentage points ahead of the ruling Social Democrats that have towered over Sweden’s political landscape for most of the postwar era. “We want to be part of shaping this country over the next 100 years

On Monday, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation commended Chick-fil-A for its decision to halt donations to several Christian charities but demanded the fast-food chain do more to change its “anti-LGBTQ” brand. GLAAD said it “greet[s] today’s announcement with cautious optimism” but warned that the Georgia-based company still has work to do to fix its tarnished image with the LGBTQ community. “In addition to refraining from financially supporting anti-LGBTQ organizations, Chick-fil-A still lacks policies to ensure safe workplaces for LGBTQ employees and should unequivocally speak out against the anti-LGBTQ reputation that their brand represents,” GLAAD director of campaigns Drew Anderson said in a statement to CNN.

While intoning pious flapdoodle about his sacred duty to impeach and remove President Trump from office, it seems that God or else Eric Swalwell's digestive system had other plans for him. He let 'er rip, and it wasn't subtle. No one heard a thing he said either before or after that impressive digestive demonstration. Which was fitting reminder to voters just how lightweight the first Democratic presidential debate dropout is, now that he's achieved a new reason to get his name in the news.

Thank goodness the Duncan, Oklahoma Walmart is not a “gun-free zone.” Because an armed citizen happened to be doing his shopping Monday morning and spotted a gunman shooting, victim fatalities were limited to two people. Brandon Curtis of Concealed Nation writes: A shooting incident occurred in a Walmart parking lot this morning where a man and woman were shot and killed as they sat inside a vehicle. Immediately after, it is reported that an armed citizen, who was in the immediate area, drew his gun and put it to the head of the suspect and told him to stop shooting.

The Clinton Foundation reported a loss of more than $16 million in 2018, according to newly released tax records, marking the second consecutive year of losses since Hillary Clinton's humiliating defeat to President Donald J. Trump in 2016. The foundation reported total revenue of just $30.7 million, including $24.2 million worth of grants and contributions, a record low for the alleged "charity." That figure was well short of the foundation's total expenses for the year—$47.5 million— resulting in a net loss of $16.8 million. The previous year, the Clinton Foundation reported a net loss of $16.1 million. In total, the organization has lost a staggering $32.9 million
