Bernie’s betting high on Green New Deal to save his campaign

Bernies betting high on Green New Deal to save his campaign

Around four months ago, Senator Bernie Sanders was on top of most 2020 election polls. Meanwhile, Senator Elizabeth Warren was polling at single-digits, former Vice President Joe Biden hadn’t entered the race, Senator Kamala Harris was still relatively unknown and nobody knew how to pronounce Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s name. That was then. Today, he has slipped to third in many polls and has less of an upside than 4th-place Harris or 5th-place Buttigieg.

Much of this can be attributed to Warren’s two strong debate performances as well as her willingness to throw radical proposals against the wall every week. Sanders has been relying heavily on his old shtick; even some leftist media sources noted that Sanders 2020 sounded exactly like Sanders 2016. His campaign until this week had been heavily reliant on promoting socialist redistribution schemes and vouching for Medicare-for-All, neither of which give him any daylight between Warren and himself. In fact, you can quote one about socialism or healthcare, attribute it to the other, and their supporters couldn’t tell the difference.

But Warren’s climate change plan fell flat with the leftest of the leftists. At a “modest” $2 trillion, it was seen as a band-aid for a sliced jugular in the eyes of many climate change activists. This was it. This was Bernie’s opportunity to pounce, and pounce he did. His recently unveiled $16.3 trillion Green New Deal package is a massive amount of pouncing.

How massive? Let’s start from the year 1 AD and write a check every day to pay for it. How much would that check need to be?

Sanders has been receiving praise from some of the most radical progressive groups out there since unveiling his plan. It is much more “woke” than Warren’s and may serve Sanders in his quest to lead the hyper-leftist wing of the party once again in the primaries. Currently, Warren holds that mantle. Will the Green New Deal be enough?

If it isn’t, Sanders is done. This is his only differentiating factor against Warren, which is why his Twitter account and campaign mailers have been in overdrive trying to make the Green New Deal the talking point for progressives. He needs them to look at his plan and Warren’s and believe Bernie is the most radical of the radicals.

It could backfire. This may be a way for Warren to appear more mainstream than Sanders. She has already conspicuously declined to take on the label of being a Democratic Socialist and has gone so far as to speak like a capitalist even if her policies are socialistic. Sanders doesn’t share her embarrassment for labels. He’s a socialist and never try to deny him of this “honor.”

Sanders is throwing up a hail mary even though the Democratic primary match is still in the first quarter. He recognizes this race could slip away from him quickly if he doesn’t do something different. He hopes the Green New Deal is his Warren-buster.

Candace Owens: ‘Leftists and Democrats don’t want to see these issues fixed in black America’

Candace Owens Leftists and Democrats dont want to see these issues fixed in black America

Speaking before Congress today, conservative activist Candace Owens detailed some of the real problems black citizens are facing in America today. She considers “white nationalism” to be a problem that wouldn’t make her top-100 list of actual issues harming African-Americans and their communities.

What she DOES consider to be huge problems include the deterioration of the family as our welfare system encourages women to remain single mothers, knowing their income from the government would be cut if they were to marry the father of their children. Gun violence is a real problem, but it’s a problem that comes back to gun control areas such as Chicago in which so many black Americans are killed by gun-wielding criminals while law abiding citizens are not allowed to protect themselves.

She looks to the education system that keeps African-American youths from receiving their proper education. And she turned to the policies of Democrats who seem to view African-Americans as a base of voters who must be exploited by indoctrinating them into the notion they’re being persecuted by white nationalists in the GOP.

Owens noted that “leftists and Democrats don’t want to see these issues fixed in black America because then they can’t stomp on those issues.”

It’s clear that Democrats spread lies intent on making minorities believe they’re the party that will help them when invariably their policies are the ones that actually oppress the masses. Marxism’s roots in racism are flourishing in leftist America.

Bill de Blasio drops out

Bill de Blasio drops out

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s short-lived presidential campaign came to an end Friday morning. He dropped his campaign that had been going nowhere from the start, hitting peak failure when he was unable to meet the criteria to attend the third Democratic debate.

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, the Mayor declared his campaign was over.

Even NBC sent him off with a zinger:

De Blasio’s bid — launched in May — ultimately lasted just over four months and was largely mocked for most of its short life.

“I feel like I have contributed all I can to this primary election. It’s clearly not my time, so I’m going to end my presidential campaign,” de Blasio said.

There’s no need to lament or further criticize the mayor. He tried. He failed. Time to move on. The real question is which failing candidate is going to drop out next? (Please let it be Beto, please let it be Beto).

Leon Cooperman on stock market’s reaction to an Elizabeth Warren presidency

Leon Cooperman on stock market's reaction to an Elizabeth Warren presidency

Leon Cooperman knows a thing or two about the stock market. The billionaire hedge fund manager has worked the market for decades. As founder of Omega Advisors, he doesn’t just move his own money around the stock market. He invests for others as well. When it comes to the market, people listen to Leon Cooperman.

They should be listening when he discusses the prospects of a Democrat in the White House and the implications of their policies, which he noted are heading further to the left.

“The Democratic Party seems to be leaning towards the left on policies, which is very harmful for the economy. I don’t like the shift to the left,” he explained to CNBC, adding that the market, of course, will open, but it won’t be pretty.

He also said something else profound…

“It would be a bear market and they go on for a year and go down 25%,” he said. “You don’t make the poor people rich by making rich people poor.”

But the best quote pertained to one of the frontrunners directly, Elizabeth Warren.

“They won’t open the stock market if Elizabeth Warren is the next president,” he quipped.

It may not be THAT bad, but it might as well be. With the radical progressives’ push for Modern Monetary Theory, the economy as we know it would evaporate like a puddle in the desert.
