Bernie’s Felon-Vote Gamble Has Biden Trouncing Him in The Polls

Biden’s team likely smelled the blood in the democratic water after Bernie’s bizarre stance became public, choosing to introduce the centrist former VP as an official candidate just days later.

Bernie Sanders, a democratic socialist from Vermont, is no stranger to off-the-wall ideas and policy initiatives, but he may have gone too far this time.

During a recent town hall even on CNN, Sanders floated a shocking stance he hold:  That incarcerated felons should have the right to vote.  Note the word “incarcerated” in there:  Bernie isn’t talking about the restoration of voting rights for rehabilitated Americans, he’s hoping to put polling stations in penitentiaries.

The idea was so stunning that even host Chris Cuomo was compelled to ask if convicted terrotists such as the Boston Marathon Bomber should have the right to vote from prison.  Sanders responded affirmatively, kick-starting a controversy that will haunt him for months to come.

Right on cue, centrist democrat Joe Biden officially jumped into the race, perhaps smelling some blood in the water as the democrats continue to chew on one another in the crowded pool.

This has worked wonders for Biden according to the polls.

Former Vice President Joe Biden currently leads his closest rival by 14 points, according to a Morning Consult poll released Tuesday.

The national poll of registered voters shows that Biden currently enjoys 36 percent backing, while Sanders only has 22 percent support.

The tracking poll shows a six-point jump in Biden’s support since announcing his run for president, while Sanders dipped two points from the previous week after advocating for criminal felons to have the right to vote.

Biden is running a far more middle-of-the-road campaign than Bernie, directly targeting the working class voters of America while framing his campaign as the antithesis to that of Donald Trump’s presidency.

Now it will be up to voters on the left to make the call.

Beto Turns Conspiracy Theorist When Asked About Validity of 2016 Election

Get out your tinfoil hats!

When you look around the internet today, there is one group of online rabble rousers who are being stamped out at an alarming rate:  Conspiracy theorists. While many of these self-proclaimed “researchers” and “journalists” are truly incorrigible, (such as nutcase Alex Jones), the underlying fact remains that taking away their right to speak their minds in the internet’s public square is wholly un-American. Remember always:  Sunlight is the best disinfectant, and forcing these dangerous ideas back underground is a surefire way to be blindsided by them when they rise again in a new, never-before-seen form. The evils of censorship aside, there is another alarming trend within this trend, however.  It seems as though only certain conspiracy theories are now considered taboo…namely those emanating from the right side of the aisle. For instance, when Beto O’Rourke tells an audience that he’s not sure how legitimate the 2016 election was, that’s just fine. While appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy, O’Rourke dropped a bombshell opinion of his. After referencing the Russian breach of the voting systems in two counties in Florida, host Joy Reid asked, “Do you have confidence that the 2016 election was not impacted in terms of, not just the use of propaganda on American voters, but literally that the electoral systems weren’t breached and that Donald Trump was elected fairly?” O’Rourke answered, “I don’t have complete confidence. In part because of what you just shared about Florida, in part because we know from other secretaries of state in other states in the union that their systems were breached. We don’t know if vote tallies were changed, but that alone should be cause for concern.” Of course, several lengthy and in-depth investigations into this very possibility have been conducted, including the 22-month long, $30 million probe helmed by Robert Mueller. None of these…

TOLERANT LEFT: Author Asks if Saudi Arabia Could Give Trump the Khashoggi Treatment

More violent dog whistles from the radical left are emerging as Washington’s dysfunction approaches critical mass.

Fran Lebowitz

For as tolerant as the liberal left claims to be, they sure do want a lot of harm to come to the President and the republican party. This “resistance” attitude is something straight out of Hollywood, which makes sense since much of this violent and anti-American rhetoric is being spurned on by wealthy celebrities who have not a care in the world. Just two weeks after Kathy Griffin posted an incredibly gory image of herself having figuratively beheaded a facsimile of the President, a former Bernie Sanders campaign staffer attempted to assassinate the entire GOP charity baseball team. We must always remember that there are consequences for these sorts of political outbursts, particularly at a time in which our nation is so divided. So why on earth would author Fran Lebowtiz suggest that the President be killed on a public forum such as HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher? Lebowtiz began her rant by saying that “impeachment would be just the beginning of what [President Trump] deserves”. She added, “Whenever I think about this and what he really deserves, I think, we should turn him over to the Saudis, his buddies. The same Saudis who got rid of that reporter. Maybe they could do the same for him.” It took until the main program had ended for Lebowitz to backtrack, likely fearing an ugly visit from the Secret Service. Later, during the “Overtime” segment, Lebowitz said, “I didn’t realize that I said it. … I regret saying it.” She added, “I did not mean that, and I regret saying it. I regret that everyone misinterpreted it…they misinterpret everything. Why should they stop with me?” Sorry Fran – there’s nothing to misinterpret here. Also, as an author, the idea that Lebowitz somehow wasn’t calculating the words that she was using is absurd…
