FLASHBACK: Bernie Was Once Kicked Off Hippie Commune for Being Too Lazy to Work

Sounds about right…

2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has a wild past.

Part of it involves being kicked off of a hippie commune for refusing to work.

So, there’s something for Democrats to consider.

Bernie Sanders was asked to leave a hippie commune in 1971 for “sitting around and talking” about politics instead of working, according to a forthcoming book.

We Are As Gods by Kate Daloz, scheduled for release April 26, chronicles the rise and fall of the Myrtle Hill Farm in northeast Vermont. Daloz, a Brooklyn writer, was in a special position to write a history of Myrtle Hill: she was raised near the commune in a geodesic dome residence with an outhouse called the Richard M. Nixon Memorial Hall. Her parents were close acquaintances of the commune residents, who offered them tips about wilderness living.

Democrats can’t be too happy to learn that Trump is polling well against their nominees for 2020.

In fact, it would appear Trump’s only true challenger might be former Vice President Joe Biden.

And Joe hasn’t even said if he’s going to run or not.

Here are the results:

More from 0ptimus:

Based on these results, Biden begins as the strongest Democratic challenger tested. His high exposure and favorability push him to a 7-point edge in a head to head match-up, and 4-point edge with Schultz in the race. Other Democrats are slightly behind Trump, though Trump remains between 41-44% in each match-up and the number of undecideds is in double-digits due to a relative lack of exposure.

In a head-to-head result:

-Joe Biden 50%, Donald Trump 43%, undecided 7%

-Donald Trump 45%, Kamala Harris 44%, undecided 12%

Three-way results:

-Joe Biden 45%, Donald Trump 41%, Howard Schultz 6%, undecided 8%

-Donald Trump 42%, Kamala Harris 38%, Howard Schultz 7%, undecided 13%

-Donald Trump 42%, Elizabeth Warren 39%, Howard Schultz 8%, undecided 11%

-Donald Trump 42%, Beto O’Rourke 33%, Howard Schultz 9%, undecided 16%

Sanders is a good Democrat.

He says everything necessary to get the uninformed riled up.

He doesn’t need facts. Facts are irrelevant to the left.

For example, speaking from a stage in South Carolina on MLK Day, Sanders said the unthinkable about President Trump.

WATCH:

Sanders: “It gives me no pleasure to tell you that we now have a President of the United States who is a racist.

Based on what, exactly?

Facepalm.

Save conservative media!

Pelosi Hands Trump A Win, Announces Plan To Pass NAFTA Replacement

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took a few minutes away from the impeachment fever gripping the House of Representatives to announce that a breakthrough was made on Tuesday concerning negotiations for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement on trade. The House will vote on a trade deal put together by President Trump that he has been lobbying for Congress to pass for quite some time now. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “It is infinitely better than what was originally proposed by the administration,” said Pelosi, a California Democrat. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, a Massachusetts Democrat, said Democrats are entering the “final stages of text sharing” with other lawmakers “before there is any expedited period of bringing it to the floor.” Neal did not indicate specifically when the House would vote on the deal. The House is set to adjourn for the year on Dec. 20 and lawmakers typically want ample time to review trade deals. Democrats said the accord came after provisions were added addressing labor law enforcement, environmental standards, and prescription drugs, satisfying their members. Neal, the lead Congressional negotiator, stated, “This is a transformative agreement. Our constant emphasis was on enforceability, enforceability, and enforceability, we fixed that.” Democrats went on to say they won the removal of several provisions that would have led to an increase in drug prices. This trade deal is set to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement that was passed back in 1993. This is a major win for the president who has said for years the old agreement was a bad deal for the United States. The new version of the agreement says that 75 percent of a car’s parts must be manufactured in North America to be duty-free, up from the previous 62.5 percent. The deal also says that 40 to…

Woman Protesting With Antifa Rushes Police, Gets Shoved To The Ground

Published

on

Antifa has a well earned reputation for being an aggressive, radical leftist group that likes to get violent during their demonstrations. Numerous stories have come out over the last several years featuring members of Antifa punching and assaulting conservatives at rallies and other egregious acts. Recently, the group held a demonstration in Seattle where the group dressed in black hoodies, wore masks, and then started taunting police officers. Conservative journalist Andy Ngo, himself a victim of violent, radical protesters, covered the insanity. The police were protecting a group of pro-America demonstrators when some of the militants in attendance took it upon themselves to burn a thin blue line American flag while gathered at the base of the statue of John Harte McGraw, Washington’s second governor. A police officer sprayed the flag and put the fire out. One of the militants present shouted at the cop, “What the f*** is wrong with you?” Yet another yelled, “Suck a d**k, you fat motherf***ers!” Here’s more from TheBlaze: Undeterred, the Antifa faithful grabbed the partially burned flag and lit it on fire again — which made them all very happy, including one woman protesting with Antifa, who stood out due to her lack of a mask and the pink accents with her clothing. At another point amid Antifa’s antics, that same woman decked out in pink tried rushing the cops’ bike line. Video shows her running at the officers and getting shoved backward. Now, most folks at this point would acquire some mental clarity and conclude that messing with cops in this way is a bad idea. But this is Antifa we’re talking about, and given that they tend to get away with a quite a bit, the woman naturally ran at the police line again. Her second attempt to rush cops, however,…
