How about them apples?

Democrat Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is, himself, the definition of hypocrisy.

Bernie calls for the rich to fork over their cash in order to be redistributed, yet forgets he’s a member of the 1%.

He’s also big into “saving” the planet, yet has no problem flying private.

The list could go on for a while.

But spending $300,000 on private flights in a single month? Is this guy a rockstar?

From Daily Wire:

“According to federal campaign finance reports, Friends of Bernie Sanders, the senator’s official 2018 Senate campaign committee, spent $297,685.50 with Apollo Jets, a private charter jet service headquartered in New York,” the website VtDigger.com reported. “The report does not break down the number of trips or where they were taken. The check was issued on Oct. 10, according to the report.”

“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” campaign spokesman Arianna Jones told VtDigger.com. “This cost covered the entirety of the tour from Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Carolina, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, California, and back to Vermont,” she said.

Jones said Sanders used private jets “to allow the senator to campaign in all of the states where candidates wanted his help and get back to Vermont in order to join the Vermont Democratic Party coordinated campaign’s final GOTV efforts. As Bernie often said while encouraging voters to get involved leading up to Election Day, this was the most important midterm election in our lifetimes and he wanted to have maximum impact.”

Sanders probably would’ve been the Democrat nominee for president in 2016 had the Democrat National Committee not worked their “magic” for Hillary Clinton.

Would Bernie have defeated Donald Trump? We’ll never know.

But what about two years from now?

Does Sanders have a chance?

From Free Beacon:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) said on Sunday that he is seriously considering another run for president in 2020.

MSNBC’s “Politics Nation” host Al Sharpton asked the 77-year-old senator if he was going to run again after losing out on the Democratic nomination in 2016.

Sharpton: “Twenty-twenty, everyone is talking about this candidate or that candidate. A central question is, will Bernie Sanders run again?

Sanders: “And the answer is, Al, I will make that decision at the appropriate time. I will be honest with you, you’re a friend, you know, we’re looking at it. But it is … a decision that impacts your family. And I want to make sure that when I make that decision, if I decide to run, that I have concluded, in fact, that I am the strongest candidate who can defeat Donald Trump,” Sanders said. “And I’ve got to make that decision based on my background, based on my past, based on my ideas that, in fact, I am the candidate that can defeat Trump.

WATCH:

Democrat Rep. Beto O’Rourke (TX) lost his bid to become senator to incumbent Republican Ted Cruz.

Most reasonable people saw it coming long before the results were official on election day.

Beto said he wouldn’t run for president in 2020.

Now, he’s not so sure.

From Free Beacon:

Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D., Texas) shifted in his response to the oft-asked question about whether he will mount a campaign for president in 2020, saying Friday he hadn’t made a decision after previously stating he wouldn’t run.

WATCH:

Hillary Clinton has already tried to be president twice.

Both times she was rejected, once by her own party.

Top aides say Hillary may again run for the White House in 2020, despite not being able to walk down a short set of stairs by herself.

WATCH:

Retiring RINO Senator Jeff Flake (AZ) is considering a 2020 primary challenge against President Trump.

Flake: “I’ve not ruled it out. I’ve not ruled it in. Just, somebody needs to run on the Republican side.”

Flake: “I hope somebody does [run], just to remind Republicans what it means to be conservative and what it means to be decent. We’ve got to bring that back. You can whip up the base for a cycle or two but it wears thin. Anger and resentment are not a governing philosophy.”

Trump: “I retired Jeff Flake. I’m very proud of it. I did the country a great service”

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Published

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
