Climate hawk Bernie Sanders spent
almost $300k on private jets

Washington Examiner, by Steve Beynon

Original Article

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2018 re-election campaign spent nearly $300,000 on private jet services in October, a report from the Federal Election Commission shows. Sanders, a climate change hawk, went on a campaign blitz involving nine states to stump for Democratic candidates ahead of the November midterm elections, according to VTDigger. His aggressive campaigning likely served as a preamble for the independent senator’s potential bid for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president. Sanders, who flew on private Apollo jets, has already positioned himself highlighting climate change as a major economic, infrastructure, and national security challenge in 2020. His busy travel

Yes, and I always thought that these huge climate change conferences could all be done via TV telecommunications in everyone´s home city instead of flying into Davos or some other exotic location. Then they all could eat Macaroni and Cheese at home instead of lobster, caviar, and champagne imported in from the four corners of the planet.
They are all hypocrites.

Sanders is a phony socialist. He just uses that moniker to get special attention. He´s as greedy as any of them.

This is how Socialism works.
The proletariat works and are all equal. The leaders have access to all the proletariat create.
It might seem that the leaders get more, and they do, but caring for their inferiors is a huge responsibility and they should not have to be distracted by base wants and needs.

Well...someone so important and smart simply cannot be asked to fly commercial while they are saving the planet. Even first class. Flying in the cattle class is for us little people.

That is actually how they view the rest of us. They see nothing wrong with jetting around the world...they are important elites and can’t be bothered with giving up ANY of their perks and privileges.

Bernie is just proven again that ´climate warming, cooling, changing´ (take your pick) is nothing more than a scam to get into your wallet. Once they get your wallet, they´ll spend that money on their welfare cheats, illegals, jihadis, and criminals of all stripes; in order words, their voter base.

First lady Melania Trump on Wednesday explained that she does what she believes to be the “right” thing, despite any potential disapproval that may come her way. Trump’s remarks came during an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity while the pair were aboard the USS George H.W. Bush. Hannity asked the first lady to explain why she often uses the phrase, “stay true to myself,” and what it means. “I do what I think is right.

Herding cats may turn out to be child’s play compared with the task of corralling what could be some two dozen Democratic candidates vying for a place on the debate stage as the party tries to pick its opponent to President Trump in 2020. Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez is expected to reveal his plans before Christmas for how many debates the DNC will sanction and how it will decide who makes the cut. The decisions are likely to be tricky. A debate with more than a dozen candidates could seem ridiculous, but the spectacle of shunting high-profile minority

GOP-controlled Senate breaks with
Trump on Saudi vote
The Hill, by Jordain Carney & Rebecca Kheel    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 12/12/2018 9:34:42     Post Reply
The GOP-controlled Senate on Wednesday dealt a significant blow to President Trump by voting to advance a resolution ending U.S. support for the Saudi war in Yemen in the aftermath of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi’s slaying. Senators agreed to begin debate on the measure despite only 11 of the chamber’s 51 Republicans joining with all Democrats to support it. The legislation would require Trump to withdraw any troops in or “affecting” Yemen within 30 days; the president has threatened to veto the bill if it reaches his desk. Senators were still haggling over amendments on Wednesday evening, but a

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) said Tuesday that U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents used tear gas 126 times against illegal aliens since 2012, including 79 times between 2012 and 2016 under President Obama. “On November 25, 1,000 migrants in the caravan ignored and overwhelmed Mexican law enforcement in an attempt to breach our border at port of entry San Diego. Agitators in the group rushed the port, hurtling rocks, bottles, debris, and other projectiles at your officers guarding a fence,” Grassley said while questioning CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan during a CBP oversight hearing.

Woke songwriters were displeased with the apparently offensive lyrics of Frank Loesser´s Christmas classic "Baby it´s Cold Outside," so they offered up a rewriting of the song that is free from offense and predictably full-cringe. In the politically correct version of the classic, a woman is not being wooed to stay over; instead, a man is basically indifferent to having her company at all. The song was first rewritten in 2016, though it recently resurfaced due to the controversy it yet again sparked with the Social Justice Left. According to Minnesota radio station The Current, songwriters Lydia Liza and Josiah

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus

President Donald Trump, future House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer erupted in an on-camera fight in the Oval Office over border wall funding on Tuesday. The president argued that funding the wall was a “national emergency” and proposed $5 billion in funding.

In response, Trump said he would shut down the government and take responsibility for it if they failed to include additional wall funding.
