Liberal logic: Bernie Sanders says his $16T climate change plan will “basically pay for itself”

The millionaire socialist who owns three homes visited Cosmopolitan to give an interview for the dumb-downed girls/womyn who still read that garbage.

Sanders discussed his $16 TRILLION climate change proposal and how it would “pay for itself.”

From the Cosmopolitan interview:

Sanders admitted that it is a “very expensive” and “very detailed” program that’s estimated to cost $16 trillion, but he intends to pay for it by cutting the $4 billion subsidies and tax breaks he said the fossil fuel industry currently receives. He added that he also plans to get the federal government to produce sustainable energy and sell it to international utility companies, which he said will make “a lot of money.

Another course of action: “We are going to end military protection that now exists for oil producers around world and that is going to save billions. Hundreds of billions of dollars.”

According to Sanders, that strategy will “kind of” pay for the plan, which also includes creating about 20 million new jobs that are geared toward pulling away from fossil fuels and moving toward using sustainable energy.

He knows it’s a lofty goal, but for him, the alternative is like a “raging fire” in a building that people will try to ignore if it suits them. “We have got to put out the fire that is now raging all over the world or else the planet that we leave to our children and our grandchildren—my grandson is right here; I have 7 beautiful grandchildren—and the planet we leave to future generations will be increasingly unhealthy and unlivable,” he concluded. “From a moral perspective, we cannot do that.”

Hypocrite: Champagne-socialist millionaire Bernie Sanders donated less than 1% of his income to charity

Although Joe Biden is the leading Demonrat candidate in the 2020 presidential race, according to a Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald Poll released yesterday, a new poll shows that Senator Bernie Sanders (Vt) now leads the field in New Hampshire. There the self-described Democratic socialist has the support of 29% of likely Democratic primary voters.

Bernie Sanders’ supporters and Democrat voters in general should know, if they don’t already, Bernie is a “Do as I say, not as I do” hypocrite. Alas, I don’t hold out much hope because we have survey statistical data that his supporters are low information voters.

How is Bernie Sanders the socialist a hypocrite? Let me count the ways:

  1. Though an advocate of socialism — which Karl Marx defined as an political-economic system that would abolish private property ownership so as to redistribute and equalize wealth — who claims to speak for the 99% and rants against the super rich one-percenters, Bernie is himself a millionaire who owns three homes and drives a $140,000 Audi R8.
    1. Tellingly, Bernie bought his third home — a $600,000 lakefront summer home in North Hero, Vermont, with 4 bedrooms and 500 ft. of Lake Champlain beachfront — just 5 days after the 2016 Democratic National Convention in which he sold out his supporters by enthusiastically endorsing Hillary Clinton.
  2. Though a proponent of $15/hr minimum wage, Bernie pays his staff poverty wages.
  3. Though an environmentalist who preaches about global-warming climate-change, Bernie flew first-class to the May 2019 Demonrat primary debate in Miam, while his wife flew coach — which makes him a sexist as well as a hypocrite.

The latest Bernie hypocrisy is that not only is he a socialist millionaire (an oxymoron!), he is also miserly and stingy toward the poor and needy.

On Sept. 8, Charlie Kirk, the founder and president of the conservative non-profit Turning Point USA (TPUSA), the conservative non-profit organization that maintains a Professor Watchlist on college professors who discriminates against conservative students and advances left-wing propaganda in the classroom, tweeted that Bernie Sanders made more than a million dollars in 2016, but donated less than 1% of his considerable income to charity:

Bernie Sanders: My administration would feature population control to fight climate change

At least he’s admitting what we all know: Demorats do use abortion as a means of birth control.

Margaret Sanger would be so proud.

Hollyweird libtard Scarlett Johansson endorses Warren; claims demorat isn’t making “crazy, outlandish promises that seem impossible to reach”

From Daily Mail: Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren has snagged the endorsement of actress Scarlett Johansson, the highest-banking actress in Hollywood.

Johansson, who has played a role in prior presidential election efforts, is not only providing campaign cash but defending the progressive firebrand’s proposals as ‘realistic’ and achievable.

‘She feels like someone who is thoughtful and progressive but realistic,’ Johansson told the Hollywood Reporter. She referenced Warren’s policy-heavy campaign as she battles Sen. Bernie Sanders for support among the party’s left wing.

She has been gaining on former Vice President Joe Biden, who is stressing his ability to beat President Trump while Warren and Sanders push ‘Medicare for All’ plans.

‘It’s not like her campaign is making these crazy, outlandish promises that seem impossible to reach. There’s a strategy there,’ Johansson said of Warren.

Johansson is also vowing to make further public efforts in the election – though stopped short of saying she would take more public actions during the primaries, such as hosting a fundraiser or appearing on the stump with Warren.

She made the comments last month on the set of Marvel’s Avengers spinoff, Black Widow, outside London.

‘Other Democrats have said to me, ‘Oh, it’s really early to back someone,’ she told the publication. ‘That kind of worries me because it doesn’t feel that early to me. I’m like, “Really?” It’s disconcerting that’s there’s not a clear candidate at this time.’

She is one of a handful of celebs who maxed out to Warren in time for her June campaign finance report. Others included Bette Midler, Jane Fonda, and Disney’s Jeffrey Katzenberg, the Hill reported.

In 2018, Johansson was part of an innuendo-filled PSA for March for Our Lives and We Stand United called ‘First Time’ that encouraged people to vote by having celebrities share tidbits about their first experience at the ballot back.

‘I was nervous,’ Johansson said with a sly smile on her face. This presidential cycle, ‘I’ll be there however I’m needed,’ Johansson said.

‘If I can help with voter engagement, whether it’s doing some sort of PSA campaign or actively trying to involve people in the process of registering and voting. I really believe if people actually did vote, our government would look the way it’s supposed to, but people just don’t vote. It baffles me.’

Johansson backed Hillary Clinton in 2016.

The actress also continued to stand by director Woody Allen, who helped launch her blockbuster career, and who faces accusations of sexual abuse by daughter Dylan Farrow that he denies.

‘I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of conversations with him about it. I have been very direct with him, and he’s very direct with me. He maintains his innocence, and I believe him,’ Johansson told the publication.

2020: President Trump is getting more donations than Democrats in blue-state Washington

If we are to believe polls, according to a new Fox News poll of 1,013 registered voters released last Thursday, August 15, 2019, each one of the top four Democratic presidential candidates would defeat President Trump in the 2020 election if it were held today (Daily Wire):

  • Joe Biden (50%), Donald Trump (38%)
  • Bernie Sanders (48%), Donald Trump (39%)
  • Kamala Harris (45%), Donald Trump (39%)
  • Elizabeth Warren (46%), Donald Trump (39%)

What is more interesting and more believable than the Fox News poll is this astounding news from Seattle Times, August 16, 2019, about blue-city Seattle and blue-state Washington:

  • President Trump has received more donations from residents of Washington than the top six Democrats combined.
  • With nearly 15 months to go before the 2020 election, Trump has received more donations from Seattle residents than he did during the entire 2016 campaign.

Some of Trump’s big Washington donors are:

  • Seattle property manager Suzie Burke donated $375.
  • Billionaire investment adviser Ken and Sherrilyn Fisher each gave the maximum $5,600.
  • Daryl Miller, Fischer Plumbing CEO who is on the board of Seattle Pacific University donated $5,600.
  • Seattle developer Martin Selig donated $5,600.

Seattle Times reporter Danny Westneat, who calls Trump’s behavior “increasingly unhinged,” points out that:

I’m not talking about total dollars raised — though on that front Trump is a juggernaut, too. But the total number of donations reflects how many people are inspired enough by a candidate to send any amount of money, sometimes repeatedly….

Well, now Trump, of all candidates, has nearly three times as many donations from Washington state as Bernie Sanders does. The Vermont senator has 8,080 itemized donations here, while Trump has the most ever recorded at this point in an election, by any candidate in either party21,657.

What’s more, these are “itemized donations” — meaning the donors were required to list their names, occupations and addresses, and risk the backlash….

So you can look through the list and see that just in Seattle, Trump has the support of a seamstress, an airline pilot, a crane operator, a teacher, a nurse, a city of Seattle firefighter, a UW professor, a longshoreman and about a thousand others. In total they’ve given $93,042.

Past this point of the last campaign, Trump had only six donations from Seattle — and when The Seattle Times contacted the donors, two said they wanted their money back….

Already Trump has surpassed his total 2016 pool of donors from Washington state, by 31%.

So what, you may be saying, Trump’s not going to win out here anyway. True. But when your fundraising is breaking records, it indicates an intense passion for the candidate, as it did for Bernie Sanders. That counts for a ton in politics — and likely means Trump is stronger right now than his dismal polls indicate.

The Seattle Times‘ article is closed to comments “due to a high number of comments that violated our terms of service,” whatever that means.
