Are You Serious? Bernie Spent Hundreds of Thousands On Private Jets In Just One Month

How does this save the planet, Bern?

Democrat Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is as hypocritical as they come.

He calls for the rich to fork over their cash in order to be redistributed, yet forgets he’s a member of the 1%.

Bernie’s also big into “saving” the planet, yet has no problem flying private.

The list could go on for a while.

But spending $300,000 on private flights in a single month? Is this guy a rockstar?

From Daily Wire:

“According to federal campaign finance reports, Friends of Bernie Sanders, the senator’s official 2018 Senate campaign committee, spent $297,685.50 with Apollo Jets, a private charter jet service headquartered in New York,” the website VtDigger.com reported. “The report does not break down the number of trips or where they were taken. The check was issued on Oct. 10, according to the report.”

“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” campaign spokesman Arianna Jones told VtDigger.com. “This cost covered the entirety of the tour from Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Carolina, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, California, and back to Vermont,” she said.

Jones said Sanders used private jets “to allow the senator to campaign in all of the states where candidates wanted his help and get back to Vermont in order to join the Vermont Democratic Party coordinated campaign’s final GOTV efforts. As Bernie often said while encouraging voters to get involved leading up to Election Day, this was the most important midterm election in our lifetimes and he wanted to have maximum impact.”

Sanders probably would’ve been the Democrat nominee for president in 2016 had the Democrat National Committee not worked their “magic” for Hillary Clinton.

Would Bernie have defeated Donald Trump? We’ll never know.

But what about two years from now?

Does Sanders have a chance?

From Free Beacon:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) said on Sunday that he is seriously considering another run for president in 2020.

MSNBC’s “Politics Nation” host Al Sharpton asked the 77-year-old senator if he was going to run again after losing out on the Democratic nomination in 2016.

Sharpton: “Twenty-twenty, everyone is talking about this candidate or that candidate. A central question is, will Bernie Sanders run again?

Sanders: “And the answer is, Al, I will make that decision at the appropriate time. I will be honest with you, you’re a friend, you know, we’re looking at it. But it is … a decision that impacts your family. And I want to make sure that when I make that decision, if I decide to run, that I have concluded, in fact, that I am the strongest candidate who can defeat Donald Trump,” Sanders said. “And I’ve got to make that decision based on my background, based on my past, based on my ideas that, in fact, I am the candidate that can defeat Trump.

WATCH:

Sanders is a good Democrat.

He says everything necessary to get the uninformed riled up.

He doesn’t need facts. Facts are irrelevant to the left.

For example, speaking from a stage in South Carolina on MLK Day, Sanders said the unthinkable about President Trump.

WATCH:

Sanders: “It gives me no pleasure to tell you that we now have a President of the United States who is a racist.

Based on what, exactly?

Facepalm.

BLM Activists Suggests Waukesha Parade Massacre is Beginning of a ‘Revolution’

The left just cannot help themselves when it comes to promoting violence.

Published

on

As with any tragedy that occurs here in the United States, there are political and cultural organizations and individuals looking to spin the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre into something that selfishly behooves their cause, and these suggestions are growing more offensive by the day.

The latest allegation comes from a self-proclaimed “militant” with the Black Lives Matter movement, who believes that the event may be the start of something much larger.

A Milwaukee Black Lives Matter activist said the Christmas parade attack in Waukesha, Wisconsin, appears to signal “the revolution” may have begun.

“I don’t know. Now we’ll have to wait and see because they do have somebody in custody. We may have to wait and see what they say about why this happened,” Vaun Mayes said on Facebook Live on Monday. “But it sounds possible that the revolution has started in Wisconsin. It started with this Christmas parade.”

Mayes is a well-known activist in Milwaukee. He describes himself as a “Battle rapper, Community activist, Songwriter, Tattoo artist, Militant,” in his Twitter bio, which is accompanied by various hashtags, including “#BlackLivesMatter,” “#BlackLoveMatters” and “#RBG.”

Mayes would go on to parrot a largely-condemned suggestion that the attack was meant as revenge for the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial.

“I said I wasn’t going to speak on no rumors. Y’all are repeating some of the stuff that, you know, that has come up. And I can tell you that the initial person who reached out to me said that they believe that this has to do with the verdict, and so I made an assumption of which side it would be from, but I don’t know,” he added in the video, referring to the not-guilty verdict of Kyle Rittenhouse. The video was filmed at the scene of the parade attack.

These comments speak to a larger issue here in the US, in which many on the left side of the aisle are continuing to turn toward violent rhetoric, and away from the principles of liberty and justice for all.

Ukraine Accuses Russians of Plotting Coup for Next Week

The highly specific threat was made public just hours ago.

Published

on

For years now, Russia has been bullying the world.  From weapons tests to forced annexations to being the likely cause of “Havana Syndrome”, there is little doubt that Vladimir Putin and his Kremlin cronies are playing the role of the global villain without even the slightest amount of regret.

And, after spending years attempting to force Ukraine back into Russian control, the small nation’s President is now suggesting that some miscreants from Moscow are planning to stage a coup in his country.

Russia has denied any involvement after Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Friday that an attempted coup d’etat is being planned in his country to take place next week.

Zelenskyy told reporters that Ukraine had uncovered a plot for an attempted coup and that Ukrainians and Russians were involved, The Washington Post reported. While he also spoke of a threat of military escalation from Russia, he fell short of accusing the Kremlin of an involvement in the planned coup, according to Reuters.

The Ukrainian President was not subtle in his statement, either.

“We have challenges not only from the Russian Federation and possible escalation – we have big internal challenges. I received information that a coup d’etat will take place in our country on Dec. 1-2,” Zelenskyy said, adding that his country was prepared for any escalation, Reuters reported.

While Putin and the Russians continue to deny their involvement, his reputation for mischief makes it all that much harder to take his rebukes seriously.
