Bloomberg Staffers Brag About Ripping Off His Campaign, Covertly Canvassing For Sanders
It looks like Hizzoner’s brilliance cannot be universally applied. I admit to being truly shocked.
[DailyCaller] Staffers for former New York City Mayor Michael Nanny Mike Bloomberg
...former Republican mayor of New York. He tried to take the credit for Rudy Giuliani's actions in the wake of the 9-11 attacks. He was known as Nanny Bloomberg for his war on 32-ounce Slurpees. Nanny is a candidate for the Dem presidential nomination in 2020. He was born on Valentine's day, 1942, which makes him 77.98496 years old, which is pretty ripe. Mike has lots of money, some of which he spends on grass roots organizations pushing for common sense gun laws along the same lines as his common sense Slurpee laws....
’s failed presidential campaign say they went rogue and canvassed for Sen. Bernie Sanders
...The only first openly Socialist member of the U.S. Senate. Sanders was Representative-for-Life from Vermont until moving to the Senate for the rest of his life in 2006, assuming the seat vacated by Jim Jeffords. He ran for the 2016 nomination for president, to be cheated out of it by Hillary Clinton, then went back to being a socialist, waiting for 2020 to roll around...
after the Nevada debate debacle, The Nation reported Friday, citing anonymous sources.

People who worked with the team knew the campaign was over after Sen. Elizabeth Being Native American has been part of my story since the day I was born Warren
...Dem Senatrix from Massachussetts, who traces her noble lineage all the way back to Big Chief Spouting Bull. It has been alleged that she speaks with forked tongue but she denies that. She had a DNA test to prove her lineage and it turns out she's colorless...
blasted Bloomberg during the Feb. 19 debate in Nevada, the report noted. They also said they were met with hostility from voters on the campaign trail, according to The Nation’s Ken Klippenstein.

"Most people knew this was a grift," one campaign official noted, according to Klippenstein’s report. "At our first office meeting, my [director] said, ’We don’t need to canvass. We can just make calls, right guys?’ And everyone was like, ’Yeah, that’s sensible.’" The staffers could not go on record because they signed a non-disclosure agreement with the campaign, the report notes.

The staffers spoke anonymously out of concern for professional reprisal and due to a non-disclosure agreement. Klippenstein obtained a leaked copy of the NDA in February ‐ a representative with the campaign confirmed the copy was indeed from the campaign.

Several staffers said they actively tried to undermine Bloomberg’s campaign, even canvassed for Sanders.

"I would actively canvass for Bernie when I was supposed to be canvassing for Mike. I know of at least one team of ’volunteers’ that was entirely fabricated by the organizers who had to hit their goals," one staffer said, according to Klippenstein’s report.

The person added: "It was easy enough to fudge the data to make it look like real people put in real volunteer work, when in reality Mike was getting nothing out of it."

Threatening Supreme Court Justices Is Never OK
[REALCLEARPOLITICS] Congress must censure Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer
...Senator-for-life from New York, renowned for his love of standing in front of cameras. Schumer has been a professional politician since 1975, when disco was in flower, which is 44.25409 years. Senate minority leader as of 2017...
for threatening two Supreme Court justices outside the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday. This should be wholly bipartisan and utterly uncontroversial.

No American, no less a high-ranking member of Congress like Schumer, should be permitted to threaten government officials or judges. This type of thuggish behavior displayed by the senior U.S. senator has no place in a civilized society and must be condemned by all.

#1  "Never OK"?

You mean, it's a felony punishable by years in prison.

Schemer deserves a lot worse than the limp-noodle lashing that us Congressional censure. He should be inducted. The man actually stood in the steps of SCOTUS, called out Justices Gorsych and Kavanaugh by name and made a direct threat against them while inviting a howling mob.

This is the same man who suborned perjury by encouraging a professional liar and now convicted felon, Michael Avenatti, to plant absurd smears of then-Judge Kavanaugh in the minds of nutjobs who claimed Kavanaugh was a gang rapist.

Got that?

Our shitty little wannabe-mafioso, Sen. Chuckie Bananas, orchestrated a campaign of lies, smears and criminal abuse of due process to assassinate the character of the same man that he is now issuing direct threats against -- on the steps of the Supreme Court.

Disbar this wretched man. Don't censure him. Indict him.

Democrat Strategist Justin Horwitz: Joe Biden Is ‘Mentally Deteriorating’
[BREITBART] Democrat strategist and backer of Sen. Bernie Sanders
...The only first openly Socialist member of the U.S. Senate. Sanders was Representative-for-Life from Vermont until moving to the Senate for the rest of his life in 2006, assuming the seat vacated by Jim Jeffords. He ran for the 2016 nomination for president, to be cheated out of it by Hillary Clinton, then went back to being a socialist, waiting for 2020 to roll around...
(I-VT) Justin Horwitz said during a Thursday appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight that Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'...
(D) is "mentally deteriorating" and that it will be a "disaster" if the Democrat establishment’s purported efforts to "shield" the former vice president prevail, leading to a head to head matchup with President Trump.

Horwitz, an outspoken Sanders supporter, spoke with Tucker Carlson Thursday night and discussed the Democrat establishment’s purported efforts to "shield" a "mentally deteriorating" Biden from the public.

"He is a candidate that is mentally deteriorating. People in the Democratic establishment say, ’Oh don’t say that.’ They really believe that they can shield Joe Biden from public scrutiny and the reality is, they can’t," he said.

"We all see what’s going on here and it’s going to be a disaster if we nominate Joe Biden," he added.

When asked by Carlson if he believes that the Democrat establishment is "perfectly aware" of what is happening with Biden, Horwitz noted that "everyone is perfectly aware with what is happening with Joe Biden," calling him a "candidate in decline."

"We all see it. He can’t get on stage without making some type of gaffe, and these aren’t the same gaffes that he made in his previous two failed presidential runs," he said. "These gaffes are a lot more serious. These gaffes clearly indicate that he is not all there anymore."

Horwitz said Biden’s state will be on display to a greater degree in coming debates when he goes against Sanders ‐ who he called a "sharp debater" ‐ head to head.

"I think Bernie picks up steam and ends up winning the nomination because Biden simply can’t debate," Horwitz said.

"They’re trying to protect him from being in public. Well, unfortunately when you run for president, you’re going to be in public," he continued. "People are going to see what’s happening."

Hunter Biden's baby mama wants him held in contempt of court for failing to provide documents
[WASHINGTONEXAMINER] The mother of Hunter Biden's child is seeking to have him held in contempt of court for failing to provide mandatory documentation.

Lunden Alexis Roberts, 28, filed a paternity suit against Biden alleging he is the father of her infant child last May, and a subsequent DNA test proved "with scientific certainty" that he is the father.

In court on Friday, Roberts's lawyers filed a renewed motion for contempt and for order to show cause because Biden, 50, has not supplied her with a copy of his 2017 and 2018 personal tax returns, along with a long list of other items, according to Arkansas Online. Clint Lancaster, her lawyer, said Biden "has continued to flaunt the orders of this court by failing to answer discovery, comply with court orders, and provide his financial information."

Biden, who is pursing an art career, allegedly failed to disclose "all financial institutions used by him or a business he owns or controls," "a list of all companies he currently owns or in which he has an ownership interest and the state in which those companies are incorporated," "a list of all sources of income for the past five years," "a list of all employers for the past five years," tax documents for companies he owns, and "a copy of deeds to properties that he owns or in which he has an ownership interest."

This is the third time Roberts's representation filed similar motions.

Circuit Judge Don McSpadden, who was presiding over the case before abruptly recusing himself, ordered both parties to supply the court with their "five most recent paystubs or five previous years of tax returns" last December. Less than two weeks later, the judge signed a separate order instructing both parties to provide the court and opposing counsel with "A. their personal tax returns for the past five years; and B. any and ALL financial documents and information showing money or monies they received in the past five years."

Both parties reached an agreement that would have given Biden until last Sunday to comply with the judge's orders, and if he did so, the judge would dismiss the contempt motions, but Roberts's lawyers allege he hasn't done that.

Biden, a recovering addict who lives in a 2,000-square-foot Hollywood Hills home, is supposed to sit down for a deposition in Little Rock, Arkansas, regarding the case next week.

He is expecting a fifth child, this one with his new wife, 33-year-old Melissa Cohen.

There's no evidence at all of this. But when massive and undeniable evidence of real corruption and sleaze emerges about the brother and the son of the Democratic VP and future nominee for POTUS, these media shitheads:

1. ...ignore not only Hunter's China and Ukraine grifts but also brother James's Iraq Reconstruction war profiteering

2. ...try to suppress these major stories of multi-million and billion $ corruption

3. ...try to deny these stories by calling them "debunked" "conspiracy theories"

4. ...change the subject.

They truly think we're stupid.
Shame on these absurd mendacious little shitheads.

Soros Spends Big to Help Prosecutor Who Dropped Jussie Smollett Charges
[FREEBEACON] George Soros
...either Ernst Stavro Blofeld or Auric Goldfinger come true...
and other liberal billionaires are pushing large sums of cash into reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown
...home of Al Capone, the Chicago Black Sox, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel...
to back the far-left prosecutor whose office dropped charges against Jussie Smollett
...Cable TV actor whose primary talents seemed to be being black and being homosexual. In a bid for national attention, he paid a pair of Nigerian brothers to rough him up a little so he could claim that two large, white, MAGA hat-wearing men had shouted This is MAGA country! while thumping him at 2:30am on a bitter cold night in Chicago and throwing bleach on him, presumably to lighten him up. The story quickly unraveled, and he became a laughingstock and the poster boy for pretend victimization and attention whoredom...
, the actor who staged a "hate crime" he attributed to Trump supporters.

The reelection efforts of Kim Foxx, state's attorney for Cook County, Ill., received a boost from the Illinois Justice & Public Safety PAC. The committee, founded to support Foxx, has spent six figures on media productions and direct mail backing Foxx's candidacy, state records show, making it Foxx's largest backer so far. The PAC received its entire $2 million budget from a group created and funded by Soros.

Soros has for years poured millions into district attorney and prosecutor races across the country backing candidates who want to radically overhaul the criminal justice system. The candidates often campaign on reducing incarceration rates by bringing lower-level charges for higher-level offenses. One such Soros-backed district attorney, Larry Krasner of Philadelphia, purged dozens of prosecutors primarily from the homicide division, drug enforcement, and civil asset forfeiture units within days of taking office.

Foxx, who received $408,000 from Soros during her first election in 2016, set off widespread criticism for her office's handling of the Smollett case. The actor claimed he was attacked by two white masked individuals in the streets of Chicago who yelled "This is MAGA country," tied a rope around his neck, and doused him in bleach. The story quickly unraveled after evidence emerged that Smollett hired two men to fake the attack. Foxx's office dropped the charges against him. Following a special prosecutor's probe into Foxx's handling of the Smollett case, a grand jury indicted Smollett on six counts of disorderly conduct in relation to making false reports to the Chicago Police Department.

Jane Fonda endorses Bernie Sanders

Heh heh. Betcha never saw that one coming, didja?
"We have to get a Commie climate president in office, and there’s only one right now, and that’s Bernie Sanders," Fonda told USA TODAY shortly before attending a climate protest in Los Angeles "So, I’m indirectly saying I believe you have to support the climate candidate."

Ex-spy Christopher Steele won’t cooperate with Barr’s dossier probe
[NYPOST] Remington Christopher Steele, the one-time British spook who launched three years’ worth of Trump-Russia collusion rumors with a lurid opposition-research dossier in 2016, says he won’t cooperate with Attorney General William Barr’s efforts to get to the bottom of the affair.

"We’ve said everything we have to say on the matter," Steele told students at Oxford University in his first public comments on the controversy, the Daily Beast reported.

But he refused to say if he has been contacted by US Attorney John Durham, who is investigating the origins of the FBI’s "Crossfire Hurricane" operation that listened in on Trump’s associates during the 2016 presidential campaign and through the early months of his administration.
