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…

Trending: Huckabee Goes NUCLEAR After April Ryan Calls for Sarah Sanders’ Head to Be Lopped Off

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.

Maxine Waters Makes It Clear: If You Stand With President Trump You Are NOT Patriotic

Talk about out of touch!

John Salvatore

Published

On Easter Sunday, California Democrat Maxine Waters appeared on Joy-Ann Reid’s MSNBC show. She made it abundantly clear. If you stand with President Trump, you are not a proud American patriot. Because that makes sense, right? Maxine noted, “One of the things you have to think about is this; who are the patriots? Who will stand up for America when our obvious enemy is basically hacking into our electoral systems? Who is going to stand up for America and claim to be a patriot when they see that there are many people around this president who have interacted with those from Russia, from the Kremlin, and with Putin? Where are they coming from? And I think when you ask yourself this question, you’d better be concerned about whether or not these are real patriots or whether or not they’re in the pockets of the president of the United States wishing to gain favor from the president and they’re going to stand up for him no matter what.” Waters added, “And so I call out their patriotism at this point this time. You take a look at this report, and you will be shocked at the information that’s unfolding.” Oh, Max, Max, Max. Enough is enough! This is just irritating. …In other Maxine news, check out this flashback during the recent government shutdown… Maxine Waters is financially loaded. And yet, during a time when government workers are seeing their paychecks withheld due to the Democrat shutdown, Waters has no problem flying first class. Talk about out of touch!

WHOA! Comedian Who Plays President On TV Just WON Ukrainian Presidential Election

WHAT IN THE WORLD!?

John Salvatore

Published

That headline sounds like a joke. It wreaks of “fake news.” One might even consider it “clickbait.” And yet, it is 100% true. A comedian who plays the president on a TV show will now become the next president of Ukraine in real life. Volodymyr Zelenskiy defeated incumbent President Petro Poroshenko by a landslide based on an exit poll released after voting stations closed, according to multiple reports. Zelenskiy, a 41-year-old who has never held public office, received 73.2 percent of the nationwide vote, while Poroshenko only received 25.3 percent. If the poll results are correct, Zelenskiy, who won nearly twice as many votes as Poroshenko in the first-round election held last month, will become president in a clear rebuke of the incumbent’s leadership. Is that wild or what? Soon-to-be former President Petro Poroshenko is facing multiple allegations of corruption. All we hear about from the left is Russia, Russia, Russia. And yet, years later, there is still zero proof the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. However, the evidence against the Hillary Clinton campaign continues to mount. Now, this… From The Hill: Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton. The leak of the so-called “black ledger” files to U.S. media prompted Manafort’s resignation from the Trump campaign and gave rise to one of the key allegations in the Russia collusion probe that has dogged Trump for the last two and a half years. Ukraine Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko’s probe was prompted by a Ukrainian parliamentarian’s release of a…
