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.

Investigation Into Origin Of FBI Russia Probe Expanding Based on ‘New Evidence’

Published

on

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the FBI’s Russia probe has reportedly uncovered “new evidence” that is leading to an expansion of efforts to look into the matter. The evidence was apparently unearthed during a trip Durham took with Attorney General William Barr to Italy. Here are more details from TheBlaze: Sources told Fox News that Durham is now “very interested” in talking to former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, two of President Donald Trump’s most vocal critics who served in the Obama administration. Barr and Durham traveled to Italy on extremely short notice, according to the Daily Beast. Once at the U.S. Embassy in Rome, Barr requested “a conference room to meet high-level Italian security agents where he could be sure no one was listening in.” Inside that conference room, Barr and Durham reportedly listened a taped deposition from Joseph Mifsud, an Italian Ministry of Justice source told the Daily Beast. Mifsud is the professor who allegedly told Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos that he had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. The reason this is so significant is because Papadopoulos spoke with Fox News where he suggested that Mifsud contacted him “as part of a setup orchestrated by intelligence agencies.” “So clearly, there was some sort of global or at least European radar on me while I was living in London and as soon as I was joining the Trump campaign — which not even the media knew at the time — I’m being introduced to Joseph Mifsud, in Rome, at a school that trains the CIA and the FBI. So, why I was introduced to Joseph Mifsud, and why this company introduced me to Joseph Mifsud, now that we know they’re connected to MI6 and the FBI, makes things even more suspicious…

New Survey Finds One-Third Of American Jews Hid Religion For Fear Of Anti-Semitism

Published

on

A new survey has discovered that one-third of American Jews have found ways to hide their religion — not wearing clothing or items that would identify them as Jewish — out of fear they would be victims of anti-Semitism. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: In addition to finding that many fear the consequences of openly showing Jewish identity, the survey found almost 90% of respondents believe anti-Semitism is a problem in America, with over 80% saying it has increased in the past five years. The survey, released Wednesday and conducted by the American Jewish Committee, an advocacy group for Jews in the United States, found that worries about anti-Semitism’s rise in recent years was consistently high among all Jewish denominations, including the ultra-Orthodox, modern Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform. Twenty-five percent of Americans Jews said they sometimes “avoid certain places, events, or situations” out of safety concerns, and over 30% said they have refrained from “wearing, carrying, or displaying things that might help people identify them as Jews.” And while one-third said Jewish institutions with which they are affiliated have suffered anti-Semitic attacks or threats, few victims of anti-Semitic incidents report them to the police. As for ascribing blame, American Jews say the Republican Party is more responsible than the Democratic Party for the current state of anti-Semitism in the U.S., and over 70% disapproved of President Trump’s handling of anti-Semitism. Over 80% of respondents said the extreme political Right and, separately, extremism in the name of Islam threaten American Jews, while 64% said the same of the extreme political Left. Another interesting finding from the survey is that American Jews are also more inclined to see negative remarks or actions against Israel as being anti-Semitic. A whopping 84 percent believed the statement “Israel has no right to…
