Bernie Sanders Chooses Michael Moore To Be Stand-In For Iowa During Trump Impeachment Trial

Published

on

One of the big concerns many Democratic presidential candidates have had about the Senate impeachment trial is how it impedes their ability to stump on the campaign trail in critical states leading up to the primary, especially Iowa.

In order to take care of some of this concern, Sen. Bernie Sanders has chosen liberal filmmaker Michael Moore to be his stand-in for Iowa to campaign there on his behalf.

The Iowa caucuses are due to be held on February 3, which is rolling around rather quickly, thus it’s easy to understand why folks like Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren are upset about the impeachment trial’s timing.

Liberals want the Electoral College Abolished. How About You?

With the Iowa caucuses looming on Feb. 3, Sanders, 78, has no in-person events scheduled through Sunday. Instead, top supporters speaking for him include Moore and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the firebrand Democratic freshman House member from New York. Both will make stops at two colleges on Thursday and Sunday. The two have campaigned for Sanders in the past.

In 2016, Moore accurately predicted that Trump would beat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the general election, citing anxiety from white, working-class voters. He has also said that Trump could win reelection should the Democrats not nominate a sufficiently progressive candidate.

The race for Iowa remains close, with a RealClearPolitics average of recent polls showing a number of the candidates within striking distance of each other. Recent surveys have Joe Biden leading at 21% support, Sanders at 17.3%, Elizabeth Warren at 16.7%, Pete Buttigieg at 16.3%, and Amy Klobuchar at 8.3%.

This whole mess could have been avoided had Democrats in the House not been terrified by the prospect of their party’s presidential candidate facing off against Trump in the 2020 election. As the panic set in, the left decided to gamble on flimsy impeachment charges in the hope of pulling a miracle and getting Trump removed from office before their candidate was chosen.

On top of that, many folks on the left have declared they will continue to pursue impeachment even if this attempt fails.

Seems liberals haven’t learned a thing since the 2016 presidential election.

Democrats and entitlement. Everyone deserves everything, even those who have broken the law to get into the United States. No free lunch to Democrats essentially means free everything. Bernie Sanders just can’t help himself. Free healthcare. Free college. What’s next? Free housing? Free computers? Free spring training tickets for baseball fans to boo the Houston Astros? Come on, man.

Would you like to pony up more of your hard earned dollars to take care of illegals? From Center for Immigration Studies: Many of the Democratic candidates for president have endorsed providing health insurance to illegal immigrants. This analysis estimates the cost of providing illegal immigrants access to the existing system of government health benefits for low-income people. (We do not model the costs of scrapping the current system and giving all U.S. residents free government health insurance, as some candidates have proposed.) We estimate that there are 4.9 million uninsured illegal immigrants with incomes low enough to qualify for Medicaid or Advanced Premium Tax Credits (APTC), which are the subsidies provided by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Assuming a realistic enrollment rate, the cost of providing ACA subsidies to illegal immigrants would be about $10 billion per year, with costs rising to as much as $23 billion per year if all eligible illegal immigrants enrolled. Costs would be similar under a hybrid approach that provides Medicaid for the lowest-income illegal immigrants and ACA subsidies for those with higher incomes. South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham (R) made a big announcement recently and it has to do with Obamacare. Here’s the scoop, via Breitbart: Lindsey Graham said that Republicans will repeal Obamacare if Trump wins, the GOP keeps the Senate, and if…

Former Criminal Justice Adviser to Bernie Sanders Busted Plotting Jailbreak (Details)

I-R-O-N-I-C

If Bernie Sanders supporters aren’t shooting at a Republican Congressman or harassing conservatives, it appears they’re busy planning violent jailbreaks. Well, at least one of them was. Seems like a story straight out of Hollywood. But nope. This is real. A guy who once advised the 2020 Democrat Socialist presidential hopeful was caught doing something he definitely shouldn’t have been doing. From Free Beacon: A former adviser on criminal justice issues to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) was plotting a violent prison escape, stashing guns and ammunition inside a soon-to-be-opened prison, authorities said this week. Nashville police said Wednesday that Alex Friedmann, a prison reform advocate who helped shape the Vermont senator’s criminal justice agenda, spent months plotting an escape for inmates of the city’s detention center. Sanders worked with Friedmann to develop positions on criminal justice in the lead up to his 2016 presidential campaign—positions Sanders still touts. CONTINUED: Davidson County sheriff Daron Hall, at a press conference on Wednesday, said Friedmann hid at least three loaded guns upon breaking into the detention center in December. The break-in was part of “an extremely deliberate and, in my opinion, evil plan” Friedmann developed “over many months,” Hall said. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koWRKwAX1_Y An undercover video caught a Sanders campaign staffer explaining that the Vermont senator is exactly who conservatives thought he was from day one. He is not a Democrat Socialist. He’s just a straight up socialist.

What if it meant the government completely took over healthcare? Would you be interested then!? Sanders seems to think “a lot of people” would absolutely love it. No joke. The 2020 presidential candidate actually said these words. It’s as if he thinks all Americans are ignorant simply because his followers are the sharpest knives in…
