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.

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.

Mayor Cancels LGBTQ Pride Flag Raising At City Hall. You Can Probably Guess What Happened Next

Insert eye roll here.

Published

The city administration of Reading, Pennsylvania is being called discriminatory by rabid left-wingers after canceling a ceremony to raise an LGBTQ pride flag at city hall on Monday of this week. City hall canceled the flag ceremony because flying the flag would be showing support for a “political movement” and no flags supporting such movements are to be flown at city hall. via TheBlaze: “People don’t realize how many people come here looking to put up flags for movements and stuff, and I’m just not part of that, and I don’t think we should be,” the Democrat added to WPVI-TV. The LGBT Center of Greater Reading issued a statement saying “what was supposed to be a proud and historical moment” turned into “a show of blatant, unacceptable discrimination.” “We are not a cause,” the statement added. “We are human beings protected by an anti-discrimination ordinance in the City of Reading.” Local LGBTQ leaders told WPVI they plan to file a complaint with the city’s Human Relations Commission. Why should LGBTQ folks have a flag flying at city hall? If all they want is to be treated like everyone else, to be considered equal, why do they continually seek to have more rights and be a protected group? That just doesn’t make any sense. It seems pretty clear what they are really reaching for is normalization. They want other people to accept their lifestyle as normal and acceptable, to be validated. This is because deep down, they know such a lifestyle is sinful and goes against nature. This is identity politics at its finest.

NY Times Makes Insane Claim About Soviets During The Space Race

The folks at the NY Times must be just plain miserable.

Published

So it’s beginning to seem like the folks over at the NY Times have some sort of strange infatuation with the oppressive Communist overlords from the Soviet Union, as they’re now, on the cusp of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 moon landing, claiming that the Soviet Union actually won the space race. How, exactly, did they do that? Through “equality.” This, ladies and gentlemen, is just how much the left hates America. Here’s more from TheBlaze: Here’s Sophie Pinkham’s main argument: The Cold War was fought as much on an ideological front as a military one, and the Soviet Union often emphasized the sexism and racism of its capitalist opponents — particularly the segregated United States. And the space race was a prime opportunity to signal the U.S.S.R.’s commitment to equality. After putting the first man in space in 1961, the Soviets went on to send the first woman, the first Asian man, and the first black man into orbit — all years before the Americans would follow suit. Pinkham joins a long list of NYT writers who have glorified the excesses of the Soviet Union. In his – ironically – New York Times best-selling book, “Unfreedom of the Press,” LevinTV host Mark Levin exposed this long history, dating back to Walter Duranty and his propaganda about Stalin’s regime. For nearly a century, the Times has lauded the murderous thugs who ran the Soviet Union and the system they employed. This week, as America celebrates one of her crowning achievements of the 20th century, the Times piles on again, this time by glorifying a few of the people the Soviet’s brutal regime didn’t kill for disagreeing with it. How crazy is this? Apparently these folks are forgetting about how homosexuality is viewed in Russia to this day. It’s not…
