Flashback: Bernie Sanders Says JFK’s Opposition To Castro Regime Made Him Want To “Puke”

Why didn’t he renounce his American citizenship and move to Cuba in a show of support?

Published

on

2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders released an ad yesterday invoking the legacy of President John F. Kennedy. But in earlier remarks, he brutally criticized Kennedy and said the former president made him want to “puke.”

In 1986 Bernie Sanders reminisced about watching the 1960 presidential debates between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon and how it made him sick to hear them talk tough about Fidel Castro’s uprising.

“But I remember, for some reason, being very excited when Fidel Castro made the revolution in Cuba. I was a kid and I remember reading that,” the Independent Vermont senator said in a clip posted by The Reagan Battalion.

“And it just seemed right and appropriate that poor people were rising up against rather ugly rich people,” he added. “And I remember…I was watching the debates, remember the famous Nixon-Kennedy debates. That was the first time the presidential candidates actually debated.”

Sanders continued, “And I was becoming increasingly interested in politics. And at that time, I was very excited and impressed by the Cuban Revolution. And there was Kennedy and Nixon talking about which particular method they should use about destroying the revolution.”

“Kennedy was saying that Nixon was too soft on communism…we should deal firmly with Fidel Castro,” Sanders shared. “And Nixon was playing the role of ‘Hey, you got to be patient. You can’t do these things. You go to negotiate.’”

The 2020 presidential hopeful then went on to suggest that what Nixon was really “upset about” was that “secretly they were planning the Bay of Pigs invasion, right then.”

“So, he was the liberal and Kennedy was playing the conservative,” Sanders shared. “But I actually got up from the room and almost left to puke because, for the first time in my adult life, what I was seeing is the Democrats and Republicans, both of them…that clearly there wasn’t a hold lot of difference between the two.”

VOTER SUPPRESSION: VA Dem Governor Orders Everyone to Stay at Home Until One Day AFTER GOP Primary

The Gov. of Virginia has told everyone to stay home because of the coronavirus with an order that will lapse one day AFTER the GOP primary

Published

on

The controversial Democrat Governor of Virginia has told everyone to stay home because of the coronavirus with an order that will conveniently lapse one day AFTER the Republican primary, and the state’s GOP is furious.

This is just the sort of anti-American, undemocratic garbage that Democrats pull, isn’t it?

And Democrats claim that it is the GOP that are always trying to suppress the vote and disenfranchise people, isn’t it? YEt her

The state GOP is none too happy about Gov. Ralph Northam’s political dirty tricks.

“The Republican Party of VA issued a statement asking @GovernorVA Ralph Northam to explain why he chose June 10th as expiration for stay-at-home order given June 9th Repub primaries. They say it is “convenient” but (barely) stop short of calling it voter suppression.”

You’ll recall Gov. Ralph KKK Northam as the governor who was caught wearing a KKK hood in a college photo.

Northam took a wave of criticism early in 2019 after a photo showing him wearing a Klan hood in college went viral.

In February of last year, an avalanche of information that depicted Northam as a long-time racist came out, including that his college nickname was “Coonman.” But the photo that appeared on a page of the governor’s med school yearbook was the most damning. It depicts a student in blackface standing next to a student dressed in the white robe and pointy hood of the Ku Klux Klan.

On a Friday evening, Northam apologized for the photo and even confirmed that he was one of the two figures in the photo — though he refused to say if he was the student in blackface or the one in the KKK hood.

Still, many think he is the one in the Klan hood.

GOP Congressman’s Bill Rescinds Kennedy Center’s $25 Million After it Fired its Employees Despite Bailout

a GOP congressman has introduced a bill to rescind the bailout cash Democrats gave the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Published

on

Last week we reported that the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts laid off its employees only hours after the Democrats gave them a $25 million bailout. Now a GOP congressman has introduced a bill to rescind that bailout cash.

Rep. Ryan Steil (R-WI) says the $25 million Democrats gave to the center is “inappropriate funding” out of the coronavirus package.

“Families and workers are struggling to pay rent, pay their mortgage, and buy groceries,” Steil said in a statement reported by Kenosha News. “Americans need relief and assistance now which is why I supported the CARES Act. However, some in Washington felt it was important to spend $25 million of taxpayer dollars on the Kennedy Center when there are obviously bigger needs right now.”

“This is frivolous spending in the midst of a national emergency,” Steil added.

The Wisconsin rep. was outraged by the bailout in the first place. He told The Daily Caller that he was against the pork going to the Kennedy Center as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

“So, we were negotiating this bill,” the congressman said. “[House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) holds up getting relief to Americans to try to get this and other things in the bill. And so the day that the House passed this bill, I drove from Janesville, Wisconsin, to Washington, D.C., to be there.”

“I spoke on the bill, spoke about how I thought the funding for the Kennedy Center was inappropriate,” Steil addded. “And then before I left Washington, D.C., to drive back home, the day we passed the bill, I dropped this bill into the hopper and introduced it to start day one. The moment after we passed a bill to begin the work of improving it and getting out of the bill, inappropriate funding.”

He concluded saying, “A handful of days later, after this passes and you find out that the Kennedy Center is laying people off. That’s almost the icing on the cake.”

So far, 15 Republicans have signed on the co-sponsor the bill.

Woman Who Ingested Fish Tank Cleaner Is Prolific Donor to Democratic Causes

The Arizona woman who accidentally poisoned her husband donated to ‘pro-science resistance’ PAC, among others.

Please read every word of Alana Goodman’s scoop at the Washington Free Beacon: “Woman Who Ingested Fish Tank Cleaner Is Prolific Donor to Democratic Causes.”

Free Beacon:

The Arizona woman who said that she and her 68-year-old husband ingested a substance used to clean fish tanks after hearing President Donald Trump tout chloroquine as a cure for the coronavirus has given thousands of dollars to Democratic groups and candidates over the last two years.

The woman’s most recent donations, in late February, were to a Democratic PAC, the 314 Action Fund, that bills itself as the “pro-science resistance” and has vocally criticized the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and held up her case to slam the White House.

Although local and national media outlets withheld the couple’s names, the Washington Free Beacon established their identities through descriptions in local news reports, where the pair were identified by their first names and ages: Gary, 68, and Wanda, 61. The Free Beacon is withholding their identities at Wanda’s request. More

“We weren’t big supporters of [Trump], but we did see that they were using it in China and stuff,” Wanda told the Free Beacon. “And we just made a horrible, tragic mistake,” she said. “It was stupid, and it was horrible, and we should have never done it. But it’s done and now I’ve lost my husband. And my whole life was my husband. We didn’t think it would kill us,” she added. “We thought if anything it would help us ‘cus that’s what we’ve been hearing on the news.”

De Blasio: If Churches And Synagogues Hold Services They Can Be Closed Permanently

Published

on

Mayor Bill de Blasio threatens to permanently close places of worship that resist shutdown order.

“So, I want to say to all those who are preparing the potential of religious services this weekend – if you go to your synagogue, if you go to your church and attempt to hold services after having been told so often not to, our enforcement agents will have no choice but to shut down those services,” de Blasio told reporters. “I don’t say that with any joy. It’s the last thing I would like to do because I understand how important people’s faiths are to them, and we need our faiths in this time of crisis, but we do not need gatherings that will endanger people.”

“No faith tradition endorses anything that endangers the members of that faith,” de Blasio continued. “So, the NYPD, Fire Department, Buildings Department, and everyone has been instructed that if they see worship services going on, they will go to the officials of that congregation, they’ll inform them they need to stop the services and disperse.”

“If that does not happen, they will take additional action up to the point of fines and potentially closing the building permanently,” de Blasio concluded. “Again, that will begin this weekend. Again, I’m sorry I have to tell you this, but anyone who’s hearing this, take it seriously. You’ve been warned, you need to stop services, help people practice their faith in different ways, but not in groups, not in gatherings that could endanger people.”

Trump Says Pelosi’s A Sick Puppy, “There’s Something Wrong With The Woman”

Published

President Donald Trump has had just about enough of Nancy Pelosi’s incessant bickering.

“She’s a sick puppy, in my opinion, he said during an interview on Fox & Friends.

“There’s something wrong with the woman,” the president said. “All she did for the first long time was impeach, impeach, impeach. That’s all she did. She’s controlled by the radical left, by AOC plus 3, for her to make a statement like that, I think it’s a disgrace, to her country and her family.”

Over the weekend Nancy Pelosi accused the president of letting people die of the Chinese virus. “As the president fiddles, people are dying,” she told CNN host Jake Tapper.

California Dumped its Ventilator Stockpiles Back in 2011

It has been reported that the California dismantled its mobile hospital system and dumped its ventilator stockpiles back in 2011 and never changed that policy.

Published

California’s governor and mayors are constantly attacking Donald Trump for “failing” to properly respond to the coronavirus, but even as they wine, it has been reported that the state dismantled its mobile hospital system and dumped its ventilator stockpiles back in 2011 and never changed that policy.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, for instance, complained that his city will soon have the same high number of Chinese virus cases as New York City which now leads the country in cases. Garcetti claims that coronavirus will soon overwhelm his medical facilities.

“We will be where they are,” Garcetti said on Friday. “We will have doctors making excruciating decisions. We will be trying to figure out what we do with that surge, how to get ventilators, where to find beds.”

But while California’s politicos attack Trump for being unprepared for this crisis, years ago the state hurt itself by shutting down its own capacity to respond to pandemics and health scares.

In 2006, California had created a system of 200-bed mobile hospital units replete with ICU units and surgical suites, and including 50 million N95 respirators, and 2,400 portable ventilators.

Unfortunately, when Gov. Jerry Brown and the Democrats took over control of the state, they dumped the mobile hospital units.

According to Dr. Carlos Aristeguieta, then Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s emergency medical director explained that the units were not half measures.

“They were not like a MASH tent on TV….They were fully insulated, HVAC-equipped, semi-permanent tents. They had ventilators, a full complement of medications, and they would roll out in 18-wheelers with [a Highway Patrol] escort. They had sleeping quarters for the staff — really comprehensive,” Aristeguieta said.

But California liquidated the whole system. Out of the 50 million N95 respirator masks Schwarzenegger had amassed for emergency use, the state dumped over half of them. ll the system’s portable battery-powered ventilators were dumped. And all the mobile unites were eliminated.

Yet, it’s all Trump’s fault.
