CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King on Monday prompted Senator Bernie Sanders, finishing his liberal policy prescriptions and encouraging him to attack Republicans. None of the co-hosts bothered to identify Sanders as a socialist or even a leftist. Instead, co-host Norah O'Donnell introduced the leftist as a “political independent,” touting: “Sanders, who was just reelected as a political independent, is pushing a bold agenda that includes protecting DACA recipients and comprehensive immigration reform.”
Monday at the Hot Topics table, Senator Bernie Sanders joined the hosts of The View for an interview that was supposed to be about his book, but turned out instead to be about criticizing President Trump.
During Sunday’s Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace contrasted front-page headlines from The Washington Post the day after Republican Congressman Steve Scalise was shot at an Alexandria, VA baseball field by a Bernie Sanders supporter with The Post's headline following the capture of mail bomb mastermind and Trump supporter Cesar Sayoc. Not surprisingly, The Post made sure to emphasize that Sayoc's political views were mentioned in the headline while the assailant's political leanings were not mentioned in the Scalise shooting headline.
Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders has at least one media champion for his Stop BEZOS Act. The bill, which is obviously targeting CEO Jeff Bezos of Amazon, would levy a 100 percent tax on companies in the amount their employees receive in federal benefits.
Only two episodes into its return and Sarah Silverman’s I Love You America is already probably the most obnoxious show of 2018. After a lousy hate-fest last week, the Hulu series continues to promote its hatred for all things right-wing. This week is no different, except with more profane jabs at President Trump.
On the eve of New Hampshire’s primary day, CNN’s New Day co-host John Berman interviewed Granite State congressional candidate Levi Sanders and, in addition to inquiring about why his socialist father Bernie hasn’t endorsed him, but he asked him to state what the President has done well and Sanders struggled to answer.
Liberals have long believed in the motto: “Do as I say, not as I do.” The latest example of that philosophy took place on Sunday, when rising Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used the occasion of a campaign “listening tour” to prevent members of the media from attending the event, which was otherwise open to the public.
It’s sad when the liberal comedian on your network is tougher than most of the journalists. But that’s what happened on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning as socialist Bernie Sanders made two network appearances. Late Night host Stephen Colbert repeatedly pressed Sanders on the problems with promoting socialism in America. Over on CBS This Morning, the efforts were half-hearted at best.
During the Wednesday night edition of CNN’s Cuomo PrimeTime, host Chris Cuomo joined the ranks of many other liberals who have interviewed far-left heartthrob Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the self-avowed socialist who upset incumbent Joe Crowley during the Democratic primary in New York on June 26. However, the CNN anchor behaved far differently than those other people when he asked how she would “pay" for any new programs because of the “sticker shock” additional health care might create.
As the November 6 midterm election draws ever nearer, the people at the liberal Time magazine continue their efforts to help the Democratic Party recapture both the Senate and the U. S. House of Representatives. Part of that "sunny future" is Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan not only winning re-election, but also leaping to a post in the leadership of the Democratic Congressional Caucus.
Poverty is no mystery, and it's easily avoidable. The poverty line that the Census Bureau used in 2016 for a single person was an income of $12,486 that year. For a two-person household, it was $16,072, and for a four-person household, it was $24,755. To beat those poverty thresholds is fairly simple. Here's the road map: Complete high school; get a job, any kind of a job; get married before having children; and be a law-abiding citizen.
For the current generation, sometimes referred to as millennials, it appears one thing is more seductive than sex -- and that's socialism.Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and 28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, winner of a New York Democratic primary, are the old and new faces of socialist America. Their platforms, it appears, hinge on the concept of shared wealth, in other words, handing out free stuff to just about everyone.
