Here’s How Bad Bernie Sanders’ Son Just Lost His First Election

Published

on

If the future of the Democratic party is socialism, it’s not starting with Bernie Sanders’ progeny.

This is fitting, considering the Senator wouldn’t even endorse his own son, Levi Sanders, because the family doesn’t believe in “dynastic politics.”

How very noble of them.

As taking such a highly moralistic stand often does, Sanders’ move did his son no favors in his first congressional primary.

He lost, and bad.

Politico reports:

Levi Sanders was one of 11 candidates vying for the Democratic nomination in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District, a seat being vacated by retiring Democratic Rep. Carol Shea-Porter. The seat has seesawed between Shea-Porter and Republican Frank Guinta in every election since 2010.

State Executive Council member Chris Pappas was the victor in the race for the Democratic nomination. With about 70 percent of the vote counted, Pappas had 43.5 percent of the vote; his closest challenger has already conceded the contest.

Levi Sanders, in comparison, had received less than 2 percent of the vote and was in seventh place among the Democratic candidates.

Pappas’ GOP opponent is projected to be Navy veteran and former police chief Eddie Edwards; Guinta is not running this cycle either.

Ouch!

One has to wonder if it would have been any different had his father endorsed him.

Levi did run on his father’s same platform, that is, thinly veiled Marxism.

This ideology seems to be walking a very thin line between giving Democrats hope and being a thorn in their side, and no one seems to be able to decide if they want to just go full socialist or if they want to be entirely honest with themselves and work to win back the votes that went to Trump in 2016.

Considering how much they loathe Trump and resent those who support him, it looks like they’d sooner go full-in for Marx than ever woo a Trump voter.

Pelosi, Capitol Police Now Bickering Over ‘Orders’ to ‘Arrest’ the Mask-less

This is getting embarrassing for Nancy…

Thankfully, the latest COVID-19 stunt by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi only took a few hours to unravel this time around. Pelosi, who has been pushing the GOP’s buttons on mask mandates for months now, used the CDC’s recent guidance adjustment to bring the facial coverings back to the House floor.  This prompted protests from a great many Republicans, and Pelosi subsequently threatened to have the Capitol Police start arresting folks who wouldn’t comply. The Capitol Police were not exactly on board with that idea. https://twitter.com/CapitolPolice/status/1420810728387264517?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1420810728387264517%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fcapitol-police-ordered-arrest-staff-visitors-not-wearing-masks A response from the speaker followed. Pelosi’s office said she did not order police to begin arresting people because it’s not within her power. “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.” The embarrassing incident comes amid a flurry of criticisms of Pelosi’s handling of the Congressional mask policy, and likely marks yet another milestone in the decline of Nancy Pelosi’s speakership.

Capitol Police Ordered to Arrest Those Who Refuse Mask Mandate

Is Pelosi exploiting the Capitol Police to antagonize the GOP?

The COVID-19 pandemic has once again become a major piece of the American political landscape in 2021, as a new variant of the once-waning virus now threatens to set back herd immunity by several months or more. And while this is certainly not good news, there are still concerns that the Democratic Party is still taking this whole thing a bit too seriously, possibly in an attempt to virtue-signal their way into the hearts of young liberals everywhere. Their latest militant maneuver is being slathered in criticism, however. U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) were ordered to start arresting visitors and staff who refuse to wear a mask on the House side of the Capitol complex starting Thursday, according to a police memo issued by new USCP Chief Thomas Manger that was obtained by a member of Congress. Police were also advised not to arrest members of Congress for failing to wear masks but to report the lawmakers’ noncompliance to the House sergeant-at-arms, the memo says. It didn’t take long for a backlash to erupt. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., got a copy of the memo distributed at Thursday’s morning roll call from an unnamed police officer, she told Fox News. Police she’s spoken to are “very uncomfortable” with this new directive that Cammack describes as “tyrannical.” “This is such an overstep of Speaker Pelosi’s authority to basically make our Capitol Police arrest staff members and report on members [of Congress],” Cammack told Fox News Thursday. “It’s absolutely unconscionable that this is where we’re at.” The move comes just a day after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s comments on possible mask requirements prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call him a “moron”.
