But they did in 2016, didn’t they?

After winning the Nevada caucus on Saturday, Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders (VT) seems to be the clear cut frontrunner for the liberal party’s presidential nomination. Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren (MA) are seemingly on their last legs. From Fox News:

Sen. Bernie Sanders will win the Nevada caucuses, Fox News can project, furthering the democratic socialist’s lead over his Democratic rivals and raising the question as to whether he can be stopped on his path to the Democratic nomination.

Bernie had a message for the GOP and Democrat establishments on Saturday. People on Twitter quickly pointed out the irony.

REACTIONS:

The Biden campaign dropped just over $1 million in private jet travel during the final three months of 2019. The Warren campaign spent over $725,000, while the Buttigieg campaign spent nearly $325,000.

However, Bernie’s camp takes the cake.

From Free Beacon:

The Bernie Sanders campaign spent just under $1.2 million on private jet travel last quarter, outpacing the entire 2020 Democratic presidential primary field.

The most recent filing from Sanders reveals $1,199,579 in spending during the final three months of 2019 to Apollo Jets, LLC, a “luxury private jet charter service.” The campaign spent an additional $23,941 for transportation to Virginia-based Advanced Aviation Team.

Capitol Riot Investigation: Official Commanded Officer to Target Anti-Trump Individuals

The complex investigation into the Capitol riots continues to surprise us.

Published

There is still a great deal that we don’t know about the events of January 6th, as an enormous investigation into the incident continues to uncover terrifying new angles in the case. The FBI has a complex and gargantuan task ahead of them, as they attempt to separate the wheat from the chaff. Thousands of hours of social media must be pored over still, and there are undoubtedly still arrests yet to be made.  Then will come the trials, which could, in turn, ignite new probes and arrests still. One of the most worrisome parts of the probe has come at the expense of the Capitol Police, who were seen on camera clearly giving a wide berth to a deadly mob.  Some officers were even seen opening barricades for the berserkers, while others took selfies with them. Now, an unbelievable bit of audio recorded during the attack is raising major concerns. A Capitol Police official radioed units outside of the building on the morning of Jan. 6 and told them only to scout for anti-Trump troublemakers — not pro-Trump protesters, according to Rep. Zoe Lofgren, who described what she said were details of an internal investigation conducted in the aftermath of the mob attack. Lofgren (D-Calif.) revealed the finding while she questioned Capitol Police Inspector General Michael Bolton, who appeared before the House Administration Committee Wednesday to testify about security failures that precipitated the Jan. 6 attack. Lofgren, who chairs the panel, described the findings as she asked him whether he had read the internal investigation reports. Lofgren said the department’s Office of Professional Responsibility was reviewing information that a radio transmission to “all outside units’ attention” that they should not be “looking for any pro-Trump in the crowd,” according to Lofgren. She added they were “only looking for any anti-Trump.” There…

Pandemic Recovery Gets Boost from Surprisingly Good Jobs Report

Let’s just hope the government doesn’t try to temper our grand reopening.

Published

Americans may very well be on the precipice of a great reopening, and the latest figures from the federal government seem to suggest that the time is nigh. There’s nothing quite like a global pandemic to offset economic growth, particularly when that pandemic arrives in the form of a highly contagious disease that shuts down almost the entirety of the service industry, along with sports venues, concerts, and even city council meetings.  This economic impact is certainly the most obvious, but for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction:  As Americans stayed home, they saved money.  That means that, when the economy does reopen, We The People will be raring to go. The effects of this pop could be enormous.  The end of the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic was the catalyst for the “roaring twenties” – a period of unmatched American prosperity and decadence. Now, judging by the numbers we’re seeing this week, a new economic boom might be right around the corner. The number of Americans filing for first-time jobless aid last week fell to its lowest level since the COVID-19 pandemic erupted in 2020, a sign layoffs are easing as the economy recovers. Some 547,000 people applied for unemployment benefits in the week ended April 17, the Labor Department said Thursday. That’s 39,000 fewer than the previous week and the lowest weekly number since March 14, 2020. About 133,000 others applied for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, a federal program for self-employed and gig workers. The latest jobless claims figure is far below the roughly 1 million weekly applications the nation saw in January. But it remains more than twice its pre-pandemic level of about 250,000, showing how much further the recovery has to go. The sky’s the limit at this point, as far as recovery goes; we just need…
