Bernie Breaks Millions of Hearts, Says NO ‘BLUE WAVE’ In November

They aren’t so certain anymore.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, Democrat National Committee President Tom Perez, and other top liberals are attempting to temper expectations about the “blue wave” they thought would hit Congress come November.

They aren’t so certain anymore.

Here’s the scoop…

From Fox News:

“A lot of people talk about this ‘blue wave’ and stuff,” Sanders told The Hill. “I don’t believe it.”

Sanders, an independent who ran for president in 2016 as a Democrat, added: “I happen to think that on election night we’ll find a very, very close situation and maybe a handful of votes determining whether Democrats gain control of the House.”

[…]

Top Democrats are working to manage expectations about a “blue wave” sweeping the party into power on Capitol Hill, urging caution about those predictions amid fresh signs that the midterms could be much closer than anticipated.

With just over two weeks to go before the critical elections, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said Monday that he doesn’t use the term “blue wave” to talk about a possible victory for his party. Even though House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — who has her eyes on the speaker’s gavel — said just days earlier they could be looking at a Democratic “tsunami,” Perez predicted a tight race for control of Congress.

More from The Hill:

With only 15 days to go until Election Day, Democrats are considered to have a solid shot to retake the House, if not the Senate, where they face a more difficult map. Midterm elections have historically swung against the party in control of the White House.

Democrats need to pick up 23 seats to flip the Republican-controlled House.

Voter enthusiasm is high on both sides, and Trump’s approval rating, though still under water, is enjoying a well-timed uptick.

Sanders appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper.

After being asked about Hillary Clinton saying Democrats cannot be civil while Republicans are in power, Bernie flew off into a tangent in order to attack “pathological liar” President Trump.

From Daily Caller:

“Joining me now is independent Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who caucuses with the Democrats. Senator, you just heard those comments from Holder, Clinton, and Michelle Obama,” Tapper said. “What do you think? Do you think Democrats have been too weak responding to Republicans in the past or do you subscribe to Michelle Obama’s mantra, ‘when they go low, we go high?’”

“I don’t think it’s a question of going high or going low. I think it’s a question of telling the truth. And the truth is that you have a president who lies all of the time, a pathological liar. I don’t think that’s what the American people want,” Sanders responded.

“You have a Republican leadership in the House and the Senate that tried, came within one vote of throwing 32 million people off of the health insurance they currently have,” he continued. “You have leadership there in the House and the Senate that wants to do away with pre-existing protections that people have in this country so they can get health insurance when you have cancer or heart disease.”

Sanders is calling on McDonald’s to follow in Amazon’s footsteps after they raised their minimum wage to $15 per hour:

There’s just one shocking detail that is flying under the radar.

It’s apparently not important for the media to note that hourly workers are losing their monthly bonuses and stock awards.

From Western Journal:

Amazon, with centi-billionaire CEO Jeff Bezos at its helm, has increased its minimum wage for hourly workers to $15 per hour.

CNBC reported that the company confirmed via email that they are getting rid of incentive pay and stock option awards in order to afford the hike.

Amazon believes that their new plan “more than compensates” for the loss in benefits, CNBC reported.

Continued:

“The significant increase in hourly cash wages more than compensates for the phase out of incentive pay and [restrictive stock units],” Amazon’s spokesperson said in a statement emailed to CNBC.

“We can confirm that all hourly Operations and Customer Service employees will see an increase in their total compensation as a result of this announcement. In addition, because it’s no longer incentive-based, the compensation will be more immediate and predictable.”

More from The Guardian:

Tim Roache, the GMB’s general secretary, said Amazon had not said “a dicky bird about cutting staff benefits” when the new hourly pay rates were announced.

Roache added: “This is a basically a stealth tax by the employer on its own wage increase – a clear case of robbing Peter to pay Paul.

“If Jeff Bezos – the richest man in the world – really wants to give hardworking staff a pay rise, he should let them keep their share options as well as increasing their hourly rate.”

Continued:

Amazon confirmed the incentives were being withdrawn, and on a blog post explaining the changes to staff, the company said it had made the changes because “hourly fulfilment and customer service employees [said] that they prefer the predictability and immediacy of cash [to share bonuses]”.

It said it would be phasing out share bonuses and would replace them with a sharesave scheme, which allows employees to buy shares at a discount over three or five years.

Mueller Drops A Nuke After BuzzFeed Says Trump Told Cohen to Lie to Congress

Thank you…Robert Mueller?!?

John Salvatore

Published

on

Liberal outlet BuzzFeed put out an original report claiming Donald Trump directed former personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.

Social media exploded because if the story is true the president would be in big trouble.

There’s no denying that.

Here’s a little taste of the report, per BuzzFeed:

President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter.

Trump also supported a plan, set up by Cohen, to visit Russia during the presidential campaign, in order to personally meet President Vladimir Putin and jump-start the tower negotiations. “Make it happen,” the sources said Trump told Cohen.

Trump’s response:

The thing is, though, even Special Counsel Robert Mueller is saying BuzzFeed‘s story is bogus!

Here’s the deal…

In case you forgot, Mueller and his team are doing everything possible to find a connection between Trump and Russia.

They aren’t exactly fond of 45.

Therefore, Mueller smacking down the report from BuzzFeed should speak volumes to lefties.

More:

BuzzFeed is standing by their report:

WATCH:

Businessman Donald Trump was thinking about the idea of a Trump Tower in Russia in 2015, 2016-ish.

Naturally, some paired this deal (that was never made) to Trump working with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton.

Conservative rock star Mark Levin, lawyer and radio host, explains the legal consequences President Trump could be facing.

Hint: sorry liberals.

Listen:

People keep saying, ‘What are the legal implications for Trump?’ There are none. Zero. There’s no legal implication; there’s no legal jeopardy, period. Moreover, in all this so-called reporting and analysis by these phony experts, where did President Trump collude, coordinate, or conspire with the Russians during the election, to fix the result of the election? Where is this evidence? And since there’s not a scintilla of evidence, this should underscore the point that this entire investigation is bogus.

Shouldn’t [the media] be cheering over the fact that so far, all the leaks show that Trump did nothing? Shouldn’t they be celebrating that, that in our republic, the president that we chose is guilty of nothing? That he didn’t collaborate, he didn’t coordinate, he didn’t conspire with the Russians? But they’re not. They keep bringing in these phony experts, who are utterly predictable. ‘You know, uh, if I were Don Jr., I’d be worried about now’ — the country should be worried about now, about what’s taking place. The country should be worried.”

[…]

How many more damn times do I have to explain that it is the position of the United States Department of Justice that you cannot indict a sitting president? He’s not in any kind of legal jeopardy.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson explains how the FBI opened an investigation in 2017 to learn if President Trump was “secretly a Russian agent.”

You couldn’t make this up.

REPORT: Twitter Colluding with Ocasio-Cortez to Ensure Message Is More Effective

I’m sure @Jack will be QUICK to assist Republicans, too!

After years of searching, there is still absolutely zero evidence the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

That’s not exactly a surprise to Trump supporters.

Collusion, however, seems to take place on the other side of the political aisle on a relatively frequent basis.

The latest example?

Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Twitter.

Twitter is colluding with Democrats in Congress to ensure they’re using the social media platform as effectively as possible.

From USA Today:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dances outside her office, solicits Instant Pot recipes and gets into fights on Twitter. Soon you may see other Democrats taking a page from her social media playbook.

The House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee is hosting a session Thursday morning with Ocasio-Cortez of New York (@AOC – 2.42 million followers) and Rep. Jim Himes of Connecticut (@jahimes – 76,500 followers) “on the most effective ways to engage constituents on Twitter and the importance of digital storytelling.” …

The decision to invite Ocasio-Cortez, a House freshman, to share her expertise signals the Democratic party’s attempt to bring in fresh voices – even when those voices don’t always agree with leadership.

Well, isn’t that swell?

People certainly need to learn more about socialist policies from a 29-year-old genius, huh??

Here’s a couple tweets from Dems who are “learning” AOC’s way…

Republican Congressman Steve Scalise (LA) was nearly murdered by deranged left-wing activist James Hodgkinson in June 2017.

If a Democrat representative had been shot in the Trump era, we’d be talking about it to this day.

Scalise sent a tweet calling out Ocasio-Cortez for wanting to raise taxes to 70%.

See it:

Alexandria responded.

Scalise sent another tweet that combined some responses from AOC’s “radical” supporters:

Her supporters showed their true colors…

https://twitter.com/randygdub/status/1081764089376849920?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1081764089376849920&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fheres-how-scummy-ocasio-cortez-supporters-are%2F

There’s a lot Ocasio-Cortez still has to learn, especially about America.

Check out this message she sent, implying that she, herself, is an “American Revolutionary.”

The world the British colonists inherited was ruled by kings, hereditary aristocrats, and wealthy gentlemen. But in the year 1776, Americans decided to change that world. They would do without a king or aristocrats. They would create a new government based solely on “the people.”

But who would really count as “the people,” and how would it all work? Should wealthy and educated gentlemen still dominate the government? Should a new, representative form of government truly represent the interests and views of common men and women? How should those people participate to make their voices heard?

Reactions:

When people look back 50 years from now are they going to say George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Barack Obama, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez were all crucial to America’s development over the centuries?

No.

Just two of those people will be credited, the other two forgotten.

Very few events in history should be compared to the Holocaust, right?

From Daily Caller:

New York Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday compared members of the migrant caravan attempting to enter the United States to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.

Heck, these law-breaking migrants were caught on camera throwing rocks at cops.

https://twitter.com/WendyFry_/status/1066791682899959808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1066791682899959808&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fdailycaller.com%2F2018%2F11%2F25%2Falexandria-ocasio-cortez-migrant-holocaust%2F

Ocasio-Cortez claims “Republican commentators” are “stalking” her and “doctoring” her live streams.

Yes, Alexandria is delusional.

The only reason she’s being talked about so much is because she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.

Check out this hilarious montage of Ocasio-Cortez proving she doesn’t know much:

Ocasio-Cortez has a question about election day and Columbus Day she can’t seem to figure out on her own.

Not only is it ridiculous, but conservatives took notice.

See her tweet:
