Months before resigning as defense secretary, James Mattis plotted to challenge President Trump in 2020 GOP primary

James Mattis, 68, former U.S. Marine Corps general who was widely revered by rank-and-file Marines for his blunt talk and leadership, was recruited by President Trump into his administration as Secretary of Defense, to the roaring approval of conservatives and patriots.

See “Obama regime purges 5th senior military officer: Cmdr of CENTCOM James Mattis

Mattis was defense secretary for only two years, from January 20, 2017 to December 31, 2018.

According to Wikipedia, on December 20, 2018, a day after Trump’s announcement of an immediate U.S. withdrawal from Syria over the objections of his national security advisers, Mattis submitted his resignation after failing to persuade Trump to reconsider. Mattis had recently said that the U.S. would remain in Syria following the defeat of ISIL to ensure they did not regroup.

Mattis’ resignation letter contained language that appeared to criticize Trump’s worldview, such as praising NATO which Trump has often derided. In his letter, Mattis wrote that Trump has “the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with [his] on these and other subjects” and that his resignation would be effective February 28, 2019. Three days later, angered by Mattis’ implicit criticism of Trump’s worldview, Trump moved Mattis’ departure date up to January 1. A day after Mattis’ departure, on January 2, 2019, Trump criticized Mattis’ performance as Secretary of Defense and said he had “essentially fired him.”

Now we know the real reason why Mattis resigned or was fired: At least seven months before he resigned, Mattis had put together a plan to challenge Trump in the 2020 Republican primary elections.

This stunning news is from Big League Politics, whose sources are:

  1. Travis Snyder, 25, an Indiana-based political consultant who was the point man for a team working to launch a Mattis Republican primary campaign against President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Insiders say Snyder is close to Vice President Mike Pence.
  2. Alex Rountree, a conservative consultant whom Snyder tried to recruit for the Mattis team.

As recounted by Patrick Howley for Big League Politics, May 22, 2019, then Defense Secretary “James Mattis and some White House employees were directly aware of and monitoring a team working to launch a Mattis Republican primary campaign against President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, according to documents obtained by Big League Politics and statements from the organizers who put the team together.”

In a series of interview, Travis Snyder told Big League Politics: “My job was to see what his [Mattis’] pathway to the White House would look like. There was a very small team. I oversaw early states polling, putting together possible running mates. I did not work with the fundraising team. I solely looked at what his path to the nomination would look like, and then his pathway to the White House. General Mattis was aware of the effort. He knew of the team, who exactly brought the team together. There are people who currently serve in the White House who knew that the team was coming together. This group is no longer active.”

Snyder kicked off his Mattis whisper campaign by planting an article with Andrew Feinberg, who wrote an August 2018 piece for Beltway Breakfast headlined, “Defense Secretary Mattis Weighing 2020 Bid, Predicts He’d ‘Kick Trump’s Ass’“.

August 2018 was four months before Mattis submitted his resignation.

Mattis’ running mate prospects included Nikki Haley, the Trump administration’s U.S. ambassador to the UN (2017-2018), and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas).

Snyder said Nikki Haley and Dan Creshaw were polled as a VP nominee in the event that Mattis ran. Also Jackie Walorski, Mitch Daniels, and regional smaller named people like Staff Sergeant Johnny Joe Jones. Snyder said his team also polled Vice President Mike Pence’s chances to run against Trump, but found that Pence had no chance.

Snyder declined to name the donors to the effort or the main person organizing it.

Snyder approached conservative consultant Alex Rountree about being part of the team, but Rountree told Big League Politics he wanted nothing to do with it. Rountree had signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement with Snyder, but the agreement is now expired.

Rountree says he never had any intention of helping Snyder, only in exposing the establishment plot to betray President Trump. Rountree identifies Snyder as being “good family friends with Pence” and also an adviser to Jackie Walorski, the congresswoman in Pence’s old district. According to Rountree, Snyder made it appear that Pence was supportive of the primary challenge to Trump. Rountree told Big League Politics:

“He [Snyder] was fluffing around a little bit about Pence, saying, ‘Pence wouldn’t be upset if Mattis ran.’ Somebody who knew the President’s every move all the time was working with Mattis: that turned out to be (John) Kelly. They were hoping for Nikki Haley on the ticket. [Snyder was trying to put together] 15 consultants or operatives in 15 different states. He said he had a polling firm that just signed an NDA that worked for the [Ted] Cruz campaign.”

Ted Cruz’s pollster during the 2016 election was The Polling Company, the president and CEO of which was KellyAnne Conway, who resigned from the company on January 20, 2017 to become Counselor to President Trump. Snyder did not deny Conway’s possible involvement in the Mattis team.

Snyder told Rountree that the Mattis team had representatives in Arizona, Michigan, Virginia and Florida.

Below are screenshots of handwritten notes that Rountree took of his conversations with Snyder on May 16 and 17, 2018, seven months before James Mattis submitted his letter of resignation:

Hollyweirdo Jeff Daniels: It’s the end of democracy if Trump is reelected

One of my all-time favorite movies is the 1996 Fly Away Home, about a 13-year-old girl, played by Anna Paquin, who raised a flock of orphaned wild Canadian Geese and, solo-flying an ultralight aircraft, led them thousands of miles south to their winter home in a bird sanctuary in North Caroline. Jeff Daniels, 64, played the girl’s dad.

Daniels, alas, is a hateful rabid leftist who is devoid of reason and prone to hysteria.

Currently acting in To Kill a Mockingbird on Broadway, Daniels has confused fiction for reality, seeing himself as the noble but fictional Atticus Finch when he actually more resembles the idiot he portrayed in the two Dumb and Dumber movies.

As reported by Erik Pedersen for Deadline, during an appearance yesterday, May 20, on far-left network MSNBC, Daniels painted supporters of President Donald Trump and a “wing” of the Republican Party as white-supremacist racists. He also hyperventilated that the re-election of President Trump would be “the end of democracy.”

Daniels said. “And I think there are people in the Midwest, between the coasts…who have to make a decision now. You have to decide whether, like Atticus, you believe that there is still compassion, decency, civility, respect for others — ‘do unto others,’ remember that? — all that stuff you guys believe in, and you still voted not for Hillary or for Trump. Where are you now? If the big gamble is to go all the way to November 2020 … and lose, that’s the end of democracy.

The topic then turned to race in America. Quoting a line from the play, Daniels said, “A mob is a place where people go to take a break from their conscience. … That’s what I see when I look at Donald Trump’s rallies, that’s when I see the lies he’s spewing at these people, and people going, ‘I gotta believe in something,’ and he said he’d bring my manufacturing job back and she didn’t, and I’m all in.’ But … at the end of the day, it’s race. It’s race. This is about the Republican Party — or a wing of it — going: ‘This is our last chance to save the party. And if we don’t, it’s the end of the Republican Party.’ And the only way they can do that was to tap the race button and say, ‘Go ahead, it’s OK.’ And [Trump] did. And they did. That was the only card they had left to play, and they played it. And they aren’t going to go quietly.”

He added: “I need people to stand up and be heroic. Because democracy is at stake.”

You can hear him hyperventilate for yourself by going to Deadline for the video.

The Deadline article received 8 comments. Below are the comments critical of Daniels; they are a hoot:

“Translation: if we don’t get our way it’s not democracy. Boo hoo.”

“Such an uncharacteristically even handed, unemotional response from an actor.”

“Will Jeffy promise to move to Canada if Trump wins again? Pretty please!”

“Poor Jeff. The dumber of Dumb and Dumber. Stop watching MSNBC and CNN. He needs to go talk to real Americans, not the sycophants backstage at his play. He’ll quickly find he’s not in touch with reality.”

“Wrong again Jeff it won’t be the end of Democracy it will just be the end of the Democrat party. Your party. The crazy party that is too afraid to do anything that’s middle of the road. Your party is now so far to the Left you have all gone off the cliff that’s why Trump will win again in 2020 so shriek all you want it won’t help.”

Joe Biden: Second Amendment doesn’t mean you’re entitled to own a gun

The 2020 presidential campaign season has already begun.

New Hampshire, like Iowa, is an early primary state. That’s why Joe Biden went to New Hampshire last Monday and Tuesday, May 13-14, 2019, blabbering about “restoring the working class in America”.

But Biden also said something that should alarm every gun-owner.

Unreported by other news media, AWR Hawkins of Breitbart is the only reporter of the 6-7 other media accounts I’ve read who took note of this. In Hawkins’ words:

Former Vice President Joe Biden admitted that the “Second Amendment exists” but stressed during his speech in New Hampshire on Tuesday that it does not say everyone is “entitled” to own a gun.

Biden, who was taking questions at a small outdoor venue . . . also spoke about past gun bans he supported. He specifically referenced the 1994 “assault weapons” ban and noted that it also “limited the number of bullets in a clip.” Additionally, he spoke about being former President Barack Obama’s point man for gun control following the December 14, 2012, attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School.

He said, “There are so many other things we can do to make schools safer, other than arming teachers.” He did not specify, however, what those other things are. Rather, he pivoted to the next question.

Since announcing his candidacy on April 25, Biden has skyrocketed in the polls to be the leading candidate among the plethora of Demonrat presidential aspirants. Biden has more than tripled his margin of advantage over his closest competitor – Senator Sanders – from 4 points to 20 points, according to Morning Consult.

Christa Case Bryant of The Christian Science Monitor says Biden’s “front-runner status can be attributed in part to the strong support he’s getting from African American voters. But it’s not only that…. Biden’s calls to unify a deeply divided country appear to be resonating with many voters whose No. 1 priority is ending what they see as a dangerous presidency that is corroding American democracy…average people who yearn not only for more comfortable financial circumstances but also a deeper sense of dignity and pride.”

“A deeper sense of dignity and pride”?

Gag me with a spoon.

You mean like this?

And lest we forget: “Vice President Joe Biden likes to swim nude in front of female Secret Service agents,” August 2, 2014.

God help us from America’s low information voters!

Kamala Harris vows to take executive action on gun control if elected

Fortunately this womyn has a slim chance of taking the lead of the demorat presidential candidates.

From NY Post: Sen. Kamala Harris pledged Sunday that she will pursue executive action on gun control measures if Congress fails to act in the first 100 days of her presidential administration.

“I’m proposing, one, that if by my 100th day in office when elected president of the United States, if the United States Congress fails to put a bill on my desk … then I’m prepared to take executive action because that’s what’s needed: action,” Harris, a California Democrat and 2020 hopeful, said in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Harris had first articulated the plan at a CNN town hall in late April, but bought it up again Sunday on the heels of yet another school shooting, in which 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo was killed after rushing the gunman to save his classmates.

“We are not waiting on tragedies and we are not waiting on good ideas,” Harris said, pointing to the “heroism of a child who we now mourn his loss, his parents’ only child.”

When asked how she liked Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-N.J.) proposal for a federal gun registry she answered, “I like the idea. But, Jake, I’m going to tell you, on the issue of the need for gun safety laws, we’re not at any loss for good ideas. People have been having good ideas for decades on this issue.”

Booker is also vying for the White House.

Harris said that the country was waiting for Congress to act. If she was forced to take executive action, Harris said she would require those who sell more than five guns a year to do background checks. She would also have the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives take away licenses from gun dealers that don’t follow the law.

Harris also expressed support for government intervention in dealing with Facebook. Co-founder Chris Hughes said Thursday that the social network should be broken up.

Asked by Tapper if she agreed with Hughes, Harris answered, “yes, I think we have to seriously take a look at that, yes.”

“I mean, when you look at the issue, they’re essentially a utility. Like, there are very few people that can actually get by and be involved in their communities or society or in whatever their profession without somehow, somewhere using Facebook,” Harris said. “It’s very difficult for people to be engaged in any level of commerce without – so, we have to recognize it for what it is. It is essentially a utility that has gone unregulated. And as far as I’m concerned, that’s got to stop.”

Over the course of the interview, Harris also tried to clean up comments she made to Tapper in January when she said she wanted to do away with private health insurance. Harris explained that while she supported Medicare-for-all “it doesn’t get rid of all insurance.” “It was in the context of saying, let’s get rid of all the bureaucracy. Let’s get rid of all the waste,” she said of her previous remark.

Harris said the Medicare-for-all bill she supports “doesn’t get rid of supplemental insurance.”

The legislation also entitles all residents of the United States to health care services.

Tapper asked if this meant Harris supported giving health care to illegal immigrants. “Let me just be very clear about this. I’m opposed to any policy that would deny in our country any human being from access to public safety, public education or public health, period,” Harris answered.

Former CIA officer: Arm yourself; violence by the Left will worsen in next 2 years

Kevin Michael Shipp, 63, is a former CIA officer with six awards:

  • Two CIA Meritorious Unit Citations.
  • Three Exceptional Performance Awards,
  • A medallion for Overseas Covert Operations.

In the CIA, Shipp worked in counter-terrorism, counter-espionage, interrogation, and internal investigation. He has a B.Sc. in biology, and a Master’s degree in forensic psychophysiology from the Defense Academy for Credibility Assessment.

After Shipp retired from the CIA in 2002, he became a whistleblower about the CIA and the Deep State in the books In From the Cold and From the Company of Shadows. He is on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. (Sources: Wikipedia.sv; Truth Finder)

In an April 27, 2019 interview with USA Watchdog’s Greg Hunter, Shipp urges Americans to exercise our Second Amendment rights by arming ourselves because he expects that in the next year or two, the violence from what he calls the Dark Left “is going to increase to the point where it’s going to be very, very bad. There are going to be beatings and probably shootings, and shooting at police. ”

The reasons for the increasing violence from the Dark Left are:

  1. Their failure in removing President Trump from office: Shipp says the Deep State tried and failed to remove Trump from office via an attempted coup that was a global conspiracy: “Yes, this is a coup. This is the most shocking violation of the Constitution and criminal activity in the history, not just of America, but of a western government. Much of this rises to the level of treason. People need to understand how shocking this is. It was a clear conspiracy. There will be arrests and indictments without question. . . . This was a coup. It was a conspiracy. It was criminal activity. These people need to be indicted, charged and need to be put in prison, and if they’re not, then our Constitution is nothing more than a sham. This was a coup against a duly elected President, and people need to understand how serious this is.”
  2. The Left is waging a covert civil war: Shipp says: “We have a not so covert civil war going on right now that has been brewing over 60 years. We have the ‘Dark Left,’ and the DNC is fully involved with all their Congressmen and Senators. There is a Marxist movement within the DNC that is in control right now. You can match up the progressive goals with Marxist documents, and you can see they are one in the same. . . . They have to change and eliminate the Constitution. . . . They want to change the First Amendment and the Second Amendment first of all. Second of all, they despise and are targeting Christianity because Christianity . . . underlines the Constitution and is mentioned in the Declaration of Independence. That’s their second target they have to destroy. Their third target is the founding principles of America. That’s our culture. They have to destroy those three things if they are going to overturn our Constitution and turn this into a global Marxist government. That is not an understatement. . . . It’s not the same party of JFK. It’s now a Marxist party and an umbrella for every victim, twisted and perverted group that has nowhere else to go. This is a mortal blow to the Democrat Party when these things come out.”
  3. The Left will be unmasked as President Trump declassifies documents: Shipp says, “They have been using ‘classification’ as a way to cover up illegal activity. The CIA has, especially in the case of this coup, not just in this, but in other things they have done criminally. They have been withholding things from Congress using ‘classification’ for decades. Trump knows what those are, and he is going to demand that classification is removed so the American people can see it. I am going to be dancing on top of my house if and when that happens.”

Shipp predicts that the declassified documents and resultant indictments will be “the death knell for the Democrat Party and the death knell for taking over our Constitution and culture. They will exponentially bring up their violence, and Americans need to arm themselves and protect themselves against that.”

The good news is that Shipp believes Trump will win re-election in 2020.

Dan Perkins of Clash Daily echoes Kevin Shipp about indictments. Perkins predicts Barack Obama himself will be indicted by a federal grand jury:

I think over the next six months there will be revelations about the Obama Administration that will start a dialogue that raises the question, “What did President Obama know and when did he know it?” There is a second question that is more troubling and that is, “Was President Obama an active participant in the covert attacks against candidate Trump?” If it comes out that many senior Obama administration officials are implicated in this massive attempt of a coup d’état, then how can we not ask the critical question, “Was the President of the United States involved with this illegal covert action?”

We now know without a doubt that the Obama administration was spying on the Trump campaign before the general election. That fact alone should scare all of us….

I believe that members of the Justice Department and the FBI, along with CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency and other high-ranking officials that have been implicated in the attacks on Trump were all appointed by President Obama. President Obama appointed all members of the Justice Department and the FBI, along with CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency and other high-ranking officials that have been implicated in the attacks on Trump. It seems hard to believe that the president didn’t know what was going on within his own administration. What is more problematic to me is that if he claims when he goes before the grand jury that he didn’t know what was going on in his administration, he is then admitting he was no longer in control and that he was incompetent at best….

I seriously believe that over the next six months, perhaps a little longer, the American people, as well as people all over the world, will be shocked at how corrupt and dangerous the Obama Administration was with its total disregard for our nation’s laws. Many non-elected officials thought, no they believed, they were above the law.

We came dangerously close to losing our Republic….

In order to start bringing this country together…former President Obama has to tell the American people the things he did wrong, why he did them, and then pay the price by going to jail for his actions. If we let these acts go unpunished, we will have lost America and I have no idea what America will look like in the future. If we don’t fix things by having people accountable to one set of laws, I can tell you it will no longer be the land of the free and the home of the brave.

See these acts and threats of violence that the Left had already committed in just the past 7 months:

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.

2020 Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg accused of sexually assaulting 21 y.o. man

Pete Buttigieg, 37, is the openly-“gay” mayor of South Bend, Indiana, a former intelligence officer in the U.S. Navy Reserve (2009-2017), and the current darling of Democrats. In June 2018, Buttigieg married Chasten Glezman, a junior high school teacher who recently began using the last name Buttigieg.

On April 14, 2019, Pete Buttigieg officially launched his 2020 presidential campaign. If elected, he will be the youngest and the first openly homosexual U.S. president, and his husband the second First Lady who’s a man.

On March 26, 2019, Buttigieg virtue-signaled this tweet:

Sexual harassment has no place in our society. Thanks to College for hosting today’s discussion on how workplace culture, not only policy, must be supportive.

Turns out Buttigieg is yet another example of Democrat hypocrisy if the accusation of Hunter Kelly is true.

Yesterday, April 28, in an article in Medium, a 21-year-old man named Hunter Kelly accused Buttigieg of sexually assaulting him. This is what Kelly wrote:

My name is Hunter Kelly. I am 21 years old. This is by far the hardest thing I have ever had to do. For the past three nights, I have not slept even a single hour. I have vomited eight times.

I was sexually assaulted by Mayor Pete Buttigieg. I didn’t know who he was back in February, only that he told me he was an important politician. When I started seeing him on television three weeks ago as a Presidential candidate, I thought about coming forward.

I am a gay man. I have been grappling with my identity for a number of years. I live, work, and attend college in rural Michigan. I know that by coming forward, I will make a hard life even harder. But I must do so — I must do so — for my country, for other gay men like me, and most importantly to stop a very bad man from becoming President of the United States.

I must confess that this is the toughest thing I have ever had to do. For two weeks now, I have been contemplating suicide. I see myself jumping from a building or a bridge. I know that years and years of counseling may lie in front of me.

In the days and weeks ahead, I will share my full story with the nation.

Kelly also tweeted his Medium article. His Twitter account @realHunterKelly is very recent: “Joined April 2019”.

A Medium reader, Kenneth Felton, wrote in a comment that Hunter Kelly “just recently” made private his Instagram profile @hkelly1997, and that Kelly is a “Log Cabin Republican. LGBT for TRUMP 2a. Patriotc #MAGA #Trump2020”.

However, @hkelly1997 is a Twitter, not Instagram account. If you click that embedded link, you’ll get this message:

This account has been suspended.

Nor do we know that @hkelly1997 is Hunter Kelly’s “suspended” Twitter account.

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.
