Neither Bernie Sanders nor Elizabeth Warren will be the Democratic nominee for president. Until this week, both of them had a shot at it with Sanders’ chances being better than Warren’s. And therein lies the problem. Warren and her campaign simply couldn’t abide by the notion that Sanders would be the radical progressive still standing at the end, so in a desperate move to elevate herself above her “friend,” she tanked both of their chances.
In an effort to turn leftist women against Sanders, the Warren campaign leaked information to CNN that Sanders told her in 2018 he didn’t believe a woman could defeat President Trump. Sanders claims his actual comments were that anyone who wasn’t a straight white male would receive bigoted attacks from the President, but Warren confirmed that Sanders specifically claimed a woman couldn’t win.
This sparked outrage towards both candidates. Many attacked Sanders for saying such a thing while others attacked Warren for lying about it. The Washington Post found one eyewitness who refuted the claim while the NY Times found one who corroborated it. We were in a stalemate, though one with major repercussions.
All of this was exacerbated by CNN’s Abby Phillips, one of the moderators at the Democratic debate Tuesday, dismissed Sanders’ denial and asked Warren how his unconfirmed statement made her feel. Warren was so appalled by Sanders’ denial that she refused to shake his hand after the debate. Later, it was revealed what she said in their exchange: “I think you called me a liar on national TV.”
While most supporters for one will still support the other if their chosen candidate drops out first, there are those who will not. Will that be 5%? 10%? 20%? More? There’s no way to know now because we don’t know what sort or reconciliation, if any, will occur between now and then. We also don’t know if the dirt being flung back and forth now will continue or if it will be redirected at their more moderate fellow frontrunners.
Warren’s campaign made a tough choice. This isn’t something they ever would have considered if their polling numbers were like they were two months ago. But they’re showing signs of desperation now as her numbers drop while Sanders’ numbers rise ahead of the beginning of caucus/primary season. Neither campaign can afford to be stifled in the first four contests ahead of March 3rd’s Super Tuesday, so the Warren campaign made a strategic move. They failed to pull over moderates the last couple of weeks by making her seem more electable, so they decided to try to grab some of Sanders’ radicals.
What she likely didn’t expect to happen was for the rift they were creating to translate into a ton of negative press for her. Instead of being the woman on the far left worth migrating to, she further established that she has snake-like qualities. More importantly, she showed that her desire to win superseded her stated goal of playing fair. Whether Sanders said it or not in the privacy of his apartment, it should never have been leaked to the press. Warren demonstrated once again she’s the most politically conniving candidate of this election cycle, rivaling Hillary Clinton in how willing she is to allow her ambition to guide her decisions.
Now, both have been harmed by the exchange. Some speculated that CNN picked a side on this to promote Warren. This is false. They picked a side, possibly at the behest of the DNC, but that side wasn’t either of the candidates involved. They’re helping Joe Biden win the nomination by pitting his two biggest rivals against one another.
It’s absurdly ironic that the two holier-than-thou radical progressives will lose out on the nomination because one of them went low out of desperation and selfishness. Sanders can blame CNN and the DNC all he wants, but Warren is the real culprit.
American Conservative Movement
As we prepare for the 2020 election, we are joining with fellow patriots to form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. We will focus on two priorities until election day: Stopping Democrats from winning elections and promoting strong conservative candidates wherever they are viable. After the election, we will shift to focusing on educating America about the tenets of conservatism. We currently have 7500+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
