NEVER FORGET: Bernie Was Asked to Leave Hippie Commune for Refusing to Work

Telling.

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.

In the summer of 1971, Myrtle Hill received a visitor: Bernie Sanders, age 30, at the cusp of his political career with the socialist Liberty Union Party.

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!

‘The Palestinian Delusion’ Untangles a Web of Fashionable Lies (Opinion)

A thoughtful opinion piece…

Published

on

Chances are that if you know a college student, he or she believes these things: Israel exists on stolen land. Israelis are all just Europeans, anyway. The true inhabitants of the land that is called Israel today are the Palestinians, and their country is Palestine. The Israeli occupation is cruel, and marked by numerous human rights abuses perpetrated against the innocent Palestinians. One day, the occupation will end, and from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free. But fervently and passionately believed falsehoods are still just falsehoods. And now, one of the nation’s foremost authorities on Islam and jihad, and author of the unique and groundbreaking The History of Jihad, has turned to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and delivered a concise but comprehensive refutation of all the false claims about this conflict that prevail today on college campuses and elsewhere. In the sharp and factual book The Palestinian Delusion: The Catastrophic History of the Middle East Peace Process, historian Robert Spencer untangles the web of lies that envelop all discussion of this conflict in the international media, and gives us the unvarnished (and often unwelcome) truth. One thing that nobody ever seems to wonder about is why this conflict is still going on so many decades after some of the most renowned and respected leaders in the world began to devote concerted efforts to ending it. Why has every one of the numerous attempts to bring peace failed, and failed consistently for seven decades now? In The Palestinian Delusion, Spencer answers that question and many others about this intractable dispute, and in the process, establishes definitively that Israel, contrary to the claims of so many among the academic, political, and media elites, not only has a right to exist, but has the best claim of any country to the supposedly…

Ilhan Omar: Hateful Rhetorical Is Synonymous With Republican Party, Which Inspires Terror Attacks

Is this what she truly believes?

John Salvatore

Ilhan Omar might’ve been dropped on her head. Not as a child, but as an adult. Okay, maybe both. For someone to be this ignorant about, well, everything, goes to show that too many people don’t understand politics or America, in general. The freshman lawmaker made some very silly comments on radically far-left MSNBC host Joy Reid’s morning program on Sunday. Go figure. But even for Ilhan, this stuff is pretty ridiculous. From Daily Wire: Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) attacked Republicans on Sunday during an interview on far-left MSNBC, claiming that the Republican Party is synonymous with hateful and “sinful” rhetoric. […] “Yeah, I mean hate, sinful, [unintelligible] rhetoric is very dangerous and it’s becoming synonymous with the Republican Party,” Omar responded. “They have refused to condemn and distance themselves from members within their party that have threatened my life and the lives of others, that have caused the deaths of people in this country who follow their message, and have put their names, the names of our president, and many of the Republican leaders in their manifestos as they have taken innocent lives.” WATCH: WOW Watch Ilhan Omar say that Hate is becoming “synonymous with the Republican Party” I’m old enough to remember when some Congresswoman Tweeted some pretty Hateful things herself. https://twitter.com/bennyjohnson/status/1206354899799334912?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1206354899799334912&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Filhan-omar-hate-sinful-rhetoric-is-synonymous-with-gop-gop-inspires-terror-attacks Israel can do no right in the eyes of Omar, Rashida Tlaib – any Democrat, really. Never mind that Palestine doesn’t really exist and that multiple nations have threatened to wipe the Jewish homeland off the face of the earth – that doesn’t matter to the left. What matters is that all things America – and American-ally – are badmouthed and trashed. WATCH: Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) says that Israel is not a democracy and is not an ally of the United States https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1163551579850412032?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1163551579850412032&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F50811%2Fomar-claims-israel-not-democracy-or-ally-lies-ryan-saavedra
