75% of Americans disagree with Bernie Sanders giving criminals in prison ‘right’ to vote

In a CNN town hall meeting on April 23, the socialist senator from Vermont and 2020 presidential aspirant Bernie Sanders said:

“Yes, even for terrible people because once you start chipping away — you say, ‘That guy committed a terrible crime, we’re not going to let him vote,’ or ‘that person did that,’ you’re running down a slippery slope. So, I believe people who commit crimes, they pay the price and they get out of jail, they certainly should have the right to vote…I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, but that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”

Sanders’ proposal that convicted criminals in prison should have the right to vote was too much even for rabid anti-Trumper Cher.

In a tweet that she since deleted, she wrote: “Does Bernie Sanders Really Believe Ppl In Prison Who Are Murderers⁉️ Rapists⁉️ Child Molesters⁉️ BOSTON BOMBERS.…STILL DESERVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE⁉️”

According to a new Business Insider poll:

  • The vast majority of Americans — roughly 75% — do not support Sen. Bernie Sanders’ proposal to enfranchise all prisoners.
  • 20% said those convicted of non-violent offenses should be allowed to vote.
  • Only 15% of respondents said all prisoners — regardless of their crimes — should keep their voting rights while behind bars. 
  • 30% said currently incarcerated people should lose their right to vote, but be re-enfranchised when they’re released.
  • 24% said those convicted of violent felonies should permanently lose voting rights.
  • Approximately 10% of respondents said they “don’t know” how they feel about this issue.
  • Unsurprisingly, the poll found a stark divide in views on this issue along party lines. Nearly half (47%) of likely Democratic primary voters but only 21% of likely Republican primary voters support enfranchising prisoners in some capacity.

Even Cher balks at Bernie Sanders’ proposal that felons in prison have right to vote

Democrats have gone so far left, even rabid anti-Trumper Cher, who fantasized putting President Trump in a “straight jacket,” is balking at their latest proposals.

In a tweet on April 14, 2019, 72-year-old Cher questioned why some wanted Los Angeles to take in even more immigrants when it already has a large homeless population:

I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants,but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN.WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+??Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More

9 days later, in a tweet that she since deleted, Cher expressed her incredulity at socialist senator and 2020 presidential aspirant Bernie Sanders saying convicted criminals in prison shouldn’t be deprived of the right to vote.

In a CNN town hall meeting on April 23, Sanders said:

“Yes, even for terrible people because once you start chipping away — you say, ‘That guy committed a terrible crime, we’re not going to let him vote,’ or ‘that person did that,’ you’re running down a slippery slope. So, I believe people who commit crimes, they pay the price and they get out of jail, they certainly should have the right to vote…I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, but that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”

Reacting with disbelief, Cher tweeted, “Does Bernie Sanders Really Believe Ppl In Prison Who Are Murderers⁉️ Rapists⁉️ Child Molesters⁉️ BOSTON BOMBERS.…STILL DESERVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE⁉️”

Of course, none of this means Cher has been “red-pilled” and is “woke” because she will still vote for whoever the 2020 Demonrat presidential nominee will be.

$16.2 trillion tax hikes to fund millionaire-socialist Bernie Sanders’ Medicare For All plan

Although he had never worked at a productive job in his life, Bernie Sanders, 77, the Demonrat senator of Vermont who fancies himself an “independent” but actually identifies as an outright socialist, is that curious oxymoronic creature — a millionaire socialist with three homes.

One of the three homes is a lakefront summer home in North Hero, Vermont, which Sanders purchased for $600,000 just five days after the 2016 Democratic National Convention, in which he sold out his idealistic millennial supporters by enthusiastically endorsing his rival, one-percenter Hillary Clinton who had used the Democratic National Committee to undermine his presidential campaign. The Democratic National Convention even called a SWAT team on Sanders’ delegates.

On February 19, 2019, Sanders joined the ever-growing list of Demonrat freaks and communists by declaring his candidacy for the 2020 presidential election, pledging to run a campaign focused on “transforming” the U.S. and “creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice” — blah, blah, blah. Shedding his political identity as an “Independent” as readily as a snake sheds its skin, Sanders will, once again, run as a Democrat, as he did in 2016.

3½ hours after announcing his candidacy, Sanders raised over $1 million from small donations. Within a week of his announcement, Sanders had raised $10 million from 359,914 donors, including some 12,000 registered Republicans.

Central to his campaign is a “Medicare for All” plan. What you may not know is that the plan is not just for all Americans or U.S. citizens, whether Medicare age (65 years) or not, Sanders means to extend Medicare to all residents in the United States, including the tens of millions who are here illegally. Even Obamacare doesn’t do that, but instead provides medical coverage to only U.S. citizens and “lawfully present” immigrants. Sanders’ Medicare for All, however, will not only prohibit the government from denying medical coverage because of “citizenship status”, it will cover even those who can’t meet the loose definition of resident — “Even if an individual is not covered under a broad definition of ‘residency’ by the secretary of HHS, the federal government can take steps ‘to ensure that every person in the United States has access to health care.'” (The Blaze)

Sanders’ insanely expansive and expensive Medicare for All will have to be funded — with what he calls tax hike “options”.

According to an estimate by Americans for Tax Reform, a nonprofit, 501(c)(4) taxpayer advocacy group founded in 1985 by Grover Norquist at the request of President Ronald Reagan, Sanders’ Medicare for All proposal will increase taxes by $16.2 trillion over ten years, which “would hit American families at every income level and businesses large and small.”

The dizzying list of proposed tax hikes will include:

  1. A new 4% employee payroll tax: Sanders would impose another 4% payroll tax on top of existing payroll taxes. This new 4% payroll tax will be “income-based premium paid by employees,” which will  increase taxes on American families and individuals by $3.9 trillion.
  2. A new 7% employer payroll tax: Sanders would impose another 7% payroll tax on employees which he calls an “income-based premium paid by employers”, estimated to be a $3.5 trillion tax increase over ten years.
  3. Eliminating health tax “expenditures”: Sanders’ Medicare for All proposal would ban employer-provided insurance and repeal the deduction for health care and the Health Savings Accounts utilized by about 25 million U.S. families, mainly the middle class. The deduction for cafeteria plans and the medical expense deduction is also eliminated. All of which will increase taxes on families and businesses by $4.2 trillion.
  4. 70% top tax bracket for ordinary income and capital gains income, which would make America the highest income tax rate in the world. According to the Tax Foundation, a top 70% rate for ordinary income and capital gains income above $10 million will raise $51.4 billion over a decade. After accounting for macroeconomic effects, the proposal would actually cost the government $63.5 billion because the proposal would suppress investment and economic growth.
  5. 77% death tax: Currently, the death tax applies to estates over $11 million and applies a 40% rate. Under Sanders’ proposal, the death tax would kick in at $3.5 million with a rate of 45%. He also proposes raising the death tax rate to 77% for inheritances. All of which will increase taxes by $2.2 trillion over ten years.
  6. Wealth tax: Sanders proposes an annual wealth tax of 1 percent kicking in above $21 million in assets. Sanders estimates the proposal will increase taxes by $1.3 trillion over ten years.
  7. Bank tax: Sanders proposes a tax on financial institutions totaling $800 billion over ten years.
  8. Broaden the self employment tax: Sanders would require business owners to report more of their business income as salary, increasing the amount of self-employment tax owed, which would increase taxes by $247 billion over ten years.

U.S. national debt is already over $22 TRILLION. Imagine what Medicare for All taxes would do to our national debt. It would kill this country.

Bernie Sanders hires an illegal as his 2020 presidential campaign secretary

Bernie Sanders spent his honeymoon in the Soviet Union in 1988

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt), 77, is a self-identified socialist who, paradoxically, is a millionaire with three homes.

One of the three homes is a lakefront summer home in North Hero, Vermont, which Sanders purchased for $600,000 just five days after the 2016 Democratic National Convention, in which he sold out his idealistic millennial supporters by enthusiastically endorsing his rival, one-percenter Hillary Clinton, who had used the Democratic National Committee to undermine his presidential campaign. The Democratic National Convention even called a SWAT team on Sanders’ delegates.

On February 19, 2019, Sanders declared his candidacy for the 2020 presidential election, pledging to run a campaign focused on “transforming” the U.S. and “creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice.” Shedding his political identity as an “Independent” as readily as a snake sheds its skin, Sanders will, once again, run as a Democrat, as he did in 2016.

3½ hours after announcing his candidacy, Sanders raised over $1 million from small donations. Within a week of his announcement, Sanders had raised $10 million from 359,914 donors, including:

  • About 12,000 registered Republican donors.
  • 39% of the donations came from people who did not donate to Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign.

Consistent with his fellow Demonrats, Bernie Sanders is utterly lawless.

Joseph Simonson reports for the Washington Examiner that on February 27, 2019, Sanders’ campaign announced the hiring of an illegal alien — Bélen Sisa, 25 — as its deputy national press secretary who, being an “undocumented immigrant,” likely won’t be eligible to vote in the 2020 election.

Sisa, an Arizona leftist activist, admits she was brought to the United States illegally from Argentina by her parents at age six. She is currently protected from deportation under Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

That would explain her political activism despite her illegal status:

  • In 2016, she worked as a page to the Arizona delegation at the Democratic National Convention and in Latino outreach for Sanders’ 2016 campaign.
  • She was arrested at least twice for protests:
    • In 2017 when Sisa was a college senior, she was arrested for a protest outside the Senate Hart Office Building.
    • A few weeks later, she was jailed for her role in a sit-in outside of the office of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY). While in jail, Sisa told reporters that she organized a “prison strike.” Both protests were over immigration reform and a demand that Congress pass the DREAM Act — a bill that would permanently legalize children like Sisa who were brought into the U.S. illegally. Calling her daugher “so brave,” Sisa’s mother, Isabel O’Neal, said: “DACA is expiring every day. Hers is going to expire in one year and what are we going to do with all of these youth? Congress has to pass the DREAM Act.”

In a Facebook post, Sisa wrote about being selected as the deputy press secretary for Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign:

“This is really emotional for me. I can’t help but think of 18-year-old Belén, who felt hopeless and powerless to the anti-immigrant attacks and policies that were holding her back from her dreams. I can’t help but think of the generations of sacrifice my family has had to do for me to get here. Never in our wildest dreams did we think I’d be making moves like these.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was appointed – not elected

AOC’s arrogance implies an invisible hand

This creature came from nowhere and speaks arrogantly of being the new boss in the Democrat Party, telling even Joe Lieberman that his time is past. Where does her cockiness come from? The following video will start to unmask AOC and her invisible backers.

Don’t look at her stupidity and take her as being inconsequential. That is the mistake America made with another blank slate named Obama.

The Marxism this creature is forcing into the American system is as deadly as a rattlesnake. We need to unmask her and her backers at every opportunity. We need to put a spotlight on her. Evil hates light because light reveals the truth.

Let the unmasking begin!

Senate Democrats vote for infanticide

Jeremiah 19: 3-5

Thus saith the LORD of hosts….
Behold, I will bring evil upon this place….
Because they have forsaken me, and…
have filled this place with the blood of innocents.

Yesterday, a bill introduced by Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) against infanticide by ensuring that babies who are born alive after botched abortions are provided medical care and treatment, failed 53-44 because every Democrat except three voted against it.

The bill, S. 130 – Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act was introduced by Sen. Sasse on January 15, 2019, in response to laws recently passed in New York and Virginia legalizing abortion of not just late-term (third trimester) unborn humans, but post-birth (“after labor”) abortions. Similar moves are being made in Illinois and Vermont.

To that end, S. 130 states that its purpose is “To amend title 18, United States Code, to prohibit a health care practitioner from failing to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion.”

S. 130 furthermore states that “If an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws” because “Any infant born alive after an abortion or within a hospital, clinic, or other facility has the same claim to the protection of the law that would arise for any newborn, or for any person who comes to a hospital, clinic, or other facility for screening and treatment or otherwise becomes a patient within its care.”

Accordingly, “Any health care practitioner present at the time the child is born alive shall—

“(A) exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age; and

“(B) following the exercise of skill, care, and diligence required under subparagraph (A), ensure that the child born alive is immediately transported and admitted to a hospital….

Whoever intentionally performs or attempts to perform an overt act that kills a child born alive described under subsection (a), shall be punished as under section 1111 of this title for intentionally killing or attempting to kill a human being.”

S. 130, with 48 co-sponsors, all Republicans, needed 60 votes to pass, but received only 53 “yes” votes:

  • Every Democrat, except Senators Joe Manchin (WVa), Bob Casey (PA) and Doug Jones (AL), voted against the bill, i.e., voted for infanticide:
    • Among the Demonrats who voted in favor of infanticide were every Democrat senator running for president in 2020: Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand and Bernie Sanders.
  • Every Republican except three voted for the bill:
    • Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), who supports abortion, did not vote.
    • Pro-life Republican Senators Tim Scott and Kevin Cramer, who would have voted “yes,” did not vote because they were absent due to flight delays.

During the debate on S. 130, Demonrats made false claims about the bill — that it would ban abortions or ban late-term abortions; that the bill hated women; and that abortion is about women’s health. (LifeNews)

But S. 130 is not about banning abortions, late-term or otherwise. Nor is S. 130 about women; it’s about babies who survive an abortion. Nor is S. 130 about women’s health; it’s about the health and the life of babies. Nor does S. 130 hate women. On the contrary, the bill goes out of its way to protect women whose babies survive an abortion by specifying that “The mother of a child born alive described under subsection (a) may not be prosecuted for a violation of this section, an attempt to violate this section, a conspiracy to violate this section, or an offense under section 3 or 4 of this title based on such a violation.”

Don’t believe me? Read S. 130 for yourself, here. It’s not long — only one page.

There are some who suspect the Demonrats’ bloodlust to abort late-term unborn and outright kill babies who survive abortions, may have something to do with the lucrative sale of baby parts for “scientific” research and who knows what else.

In fact, in 2017, as a result of Center for Medical Progress’ undercover video exposés, two California companies, DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, were fined and ordered to shut down for illegally trafficking world-wide in aborted baby parts (tissues and organs) obtained from Planned Parenthood of Orange County.

Most recently, on February 13, 2019, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested Roberto and William Isaías, wealthy Ecuadorian brothers who were principals in DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics. The brothers donated $90,000 to Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, and were given asylum in the U.S. by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Clinton’s State Department also rebuffed attempts by Ecuador to extradite the brothers to face justice for running their Ecuadorian bank into the ground, illictly profiting from government bailout funds, and wiping out the life savings of thousands of families.

We are not just fighting Democrat candidates

The candidates are sufficiently creepy to hold our attention…

But there are other factors we need to deal with beyond the wild-eyed socialists and demagogs of the DNC.

These factors are the voting blocks the Demonrats rely on. The constituencies the Demonrats need most are as follows:

These voting blocks are admittedly overlapping. They represent specific angles of attack on the integrity of the vote. If they are allowed to thrive, all confidence among voters will die, leading to people seeking other means of being heard, including (God forbid) violence.

The one group listed above that remains legal is the “Snowflake Block.” This group, although legal, is so misinformed and indoctrinated that they are as dangerous as the others, even the vaunted “Dead Vote.”

And the “Snowflakes” overlap yet another group:

The Llama Vote differs from the Snowflakes in age.

While the Snowflakes are almost by definition Millennials, the Llamas can be Liberals of any age, but usually over the age of 40. Llamas cannot be reasoned with. They can hear or see any compelling argument in favor of common sense, and remain unmoved from their Leftist dogma.

Known by their glassy cock-eyed stare, they are best avoided. They rarely pose a physical threat. The danger they represent to a conservative is to be drawn into a needless waste of time and energy.

We can safely ignore Llamas

They will remain content, packing heavy loads of contraband along Andean mountain trails, and peacefully avoiding encounters with common sense. (Greater concentrations of Llamas can be found in Brattleboro Vermont, Portland Maine, and Key West Florida.)  Generally older and less given to violence, they are likewise largely less influential.

This has been a public service announcement for conservatives.

Multimillionaire actor John Cusack is a socialist who can’t spell

Actor John Cusack, 52, is high-school graduate who dropped out of New York University after one year, saying he just had “too much fire in his belly” for college. He then went into acting and is probably best known for director Roland Emmerich’s 2009 disaster film 2012, in which Cusack played a struggling novelist who saves the world from the apocalypse.

Although John Cusack is very white (Irish American) and one of the wealthiest of Americans, with an estimated net worth of $50 million, he is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, which espouses socialism, “internationalism” (globalism), LGBT rights, and anti-white and anti-male supremacy “socialist feminism”. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is also a member of the Democratic Socialists of America; millionaire Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) is a self-described “democratic socialist”.

Cusack’s socialism (Medicare for all; Green New Deal is not about energy, but a way to “transform the country”), anti-GOP (“gop deathkkkult”), and hysterical anti-Trumpism (Trump colludes with the Russians; is a “nazi” who uses “deception”, “lies”, “gulags”, “internment camps”; and “tortures” and “abducts” children) are amply revealed in his tweets, which are replete with cringe-inducing spelling/grammatical errors that are not mere typos because there are so many of them.

Below is a sample of his latest tweets. Cusack’s politics are underlined in red; his spelling/grammatical errors are circled in red.

If you patronize this faux socialist by watching his movies and TV, you’re contributing to his $50 million fortune and enabling his political activism.
