Bernie Sanders Goes Off About Media ‘Venom,’ Says Dem Establishment ‘Working Frantically To Try And Defeat Us’

Published

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders was hoping for a much better outcome for Super Tuesday, especially since he had been riding high after some big wins and good showings in other state primaries, but things didn’t really go that way.

Former Vice President Joe Biden hammered out quite a few big wins on Tuesday, allowing him to make a legendary comeback — which the Democratic Party surely had nothing to do with, right? — and possibly pull the rug out from beneath Bernie’s feet.

Sanders has now come out and criticized the media during his first remarks with the press after losing 10 states to Biden in the Super Tuesday primaries.

“There has never been a campaign in recent history that has taken on the entire political establishment, and that is an establishment which is working frantically to try and defeat us,” the Vermont senator said in a press conference on Wednesday. “And there’s not been a campaign, I think, that has been having to deal with the kind of venom we’re seeing from some in the corporate media.”

He referenced a CNN segment with the chyron “Can Either Coronavirus or Bernie Sanders Be Stopped?” and then-MSNBC host Chris Matthews comparing Sanders’s Nevada caucuses win to the 1940 Nazi invasion of France.

“This campaign has been compared to the coronavirus on television. We have been described as the Nazi army marching across France,” Sanders said.

Sanders then turned his aim to the former vice president, acknowledging that he and Biden are “basically neck and neck” in delegates after Super Tuesday. Results from the contests are still being calculated, but the Associated Press projects that Biden now has 566 delegates while Sanders has 501. A candidate needs 1,991 delegates to win the Democratic presidential nomination on the first ballot.

Sanders went on to say that Biden is a “decent human being,” but claimed he is “heavily supported by the corporate establishment” in the Democratic Party.

He then went on to attack Biden’s support for what he called a “dysfunctional and cruel” healthcare system. Obviously, what Sanders really wants is for healthcare to be completely under the control of the government in a single-payer system, regardless of how badly such a system functions in practice.

Sanders went on to say, “What this campaign, I think, is increasingly about is, which side are you on? Does anyone seriously believe that a president backed by the corporate world is going to bring about the changes in this country that working families and the middle class and lower-income people desperately need?”

Sanders isn’t necessarily wrong. The establishment within the Democratic Party is most definitely out to make sure he doesn’t win the nomination, and for good reason. As foolish as the Democratic Party has been over the last few years since Trump took office, they know that a socialist candidate would more than likely mobilize more independents and even quite a few Democrats to jump ship and vote for Trump, essentially sealing the deal for his re-election.

Russia Backs Down; Begins Removing Troop Buildup from Ukraine Border

Putin’s puffery is over…for now.

Published

After several weeks of back-and-forth bantering, it appears as though Vladimir Putin is done puffing out his chest. The Russian President has been a fly in the ointment of global diplomacy for months now, as he continued to move a grand number of troops to strategic locations near the Ukrainian border.  After forcefully annexing Crimea from Ukraine years ago, many believed that Putin would simply steamroll into Kiev and take the whole of Ukraine sometime in the near future. His massive troop buildups on the border, complete with “invasion stripes” being painted on military vehicles, drew harsh criticism from US President Joe Biden, as well as from a number of international agencies. After some tough talk between Biden and Putin, it appears as though Putin is backing down. Russia’s defense minister on Thursday ordered troops back to their permanent bases following massive drills in Crimea that involved dozens of navy ships, hundreds of warplanes and thousands of troops in a show of force amid tensions with Ukraine. After watching the drills, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu declared the maneuvers over and ordered the military to pull the troops taking part in maneuvers in Crimea and western Russia back to their permanent bases. “I consider the goals of the snap check of readiness fulfilled,” Shoigu said. “The troops have shown their defense capability and I decided to complete the drills in the South and Western military districts.” Putin has been a big fan of bluster in recent years, intercepting a number of US jets in sovereign airspace, blocking access to the Black Sea, and constantly touting his “hypersonic” missiles capable of evading even the most robust defense systems.

Border Governor Trounces Biden by Declaring State of Emergency

There’s no denying it anymore.

Published

For many Republicans, there is a great fear that the White House is either in denial that a humanitarian crisis is occurring on the southern border, or that they are actively looking to tamp down the reality of the situation to save political face. In either case, many within the GOP are unwilling to wait any longer for the federal government to take the issue seriously, and are simply taking matters into their own hands this week. In Arizona… Gov. Doug Ducey will dispatch National Guard troops to the southern border in response to a recent increase in migrants being apprehended by the Border Patrol, his office announced Tuesday. The Republican leader also declared a state of emergency in four border counties — Cochise, Pima, Santa Cruz and Yuma — as well as in Maricopa and Pinal. “The U.S. Border Patrol is overwhelmed. Local law enforcement and mayors are calling out for help,” Ducey said in a video outlining his rationale. “Citizens in our border communities are concerned for their safety, and nonprofits, left to pick up the pieces of broken federal policies, are strained … and yet we still haven’t received an adequate response from the (Joe) Biden administration.” Ducey was quite perturbed with the response from the Biden team. The governor for weeks has held Biden solely responsible for the migrant surge, pointing to the Democrat’s decision to reverse a series of aggressive immigration policies implemented by his predecessor. During a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border last month, Ducey blasted Biden and his administration for being “totally divorced from the reality on the ground.” Vice President Kamala Harris has been tapped to lead the effort to rein in the migrant crisis, but has yet to either visit the border or hold a press conference detailing her work.
