    I predict that there will not be a presidential debate. There is no fair venue. They cheated last time with a video screen and an earbud and the questions before hand. They still lost. Just the optics of any one of those people on a stage with President Trump would lose it for them. They will make the conditions so untenable that they hope President Trump declines.

    Watched Laura Ingrahm who had Newt on – said watching Bernie was like some twilight zone SNL skit – but didn’t know who could play him. I do – its always been the Back to the Future scientist.

    Another Newt takeaway – none of them will ever have the visuals to go against El President. While these malcontents and misfits flail about and sputter, meanwhile – in the real world, His Excellency El Presidente was being applauded by 125,000 people in an overseas stadium. Hahahahahaha.

    The most interesting moment of the night I haven’t seen many people comment about. Butt Edge Edge said Bernie is going to alienate voters and said his policies are crazy.

    Bernie, in a stroke of brilliance, then listed every policy he has and asked who doesn’t agree with Universal Healthcare? Who doesn’t agree with a wealth tax? Who doesn’t agree with loan forgiveness? Who doesn’t…. etc. etc.

    They all shouted him down and almost had a coronary, because he was honestly, and accurately revealing the ENTIRE democrat party, every nominee on that stage, as Communists.

        Yeah, it’s pretty wild. You’re absolutely correct, he’s to the right of them on some issues. There is going to be some percentage of his voters, after they’re burned, who slightly wake up, see the light, and then seamlessly slide right over onto the Trump train.

        A lot of the complaints Bernie has, are Trumpish issues, he just has ridiculous stupid solutions for those policies (I.e., full blown Communism). Trump addresses the same problems, but with solutions that work.

          in 2016 13% of bernie’s supporters voted for trump, more than trump took wisconsin, michigan, pennsylvania or florida. this time they are better informed. i fully expect to vote for bernie in the florida primary and trump in the general election again. i’d be happier about it if some of crossfire hurricane’s perps had been put on trial by then but i’d rather see a second trump term than a first by any of the democratic party’s candidates for nominee thus far.

    • And Bernies followers love him because he doesnt change- he really believes these things are all possible, and so do they.
      As Carville pointed out, he is off to the races with a big lead, and if he wins big in SC, he is probably unstoppable.
      Joy Reid, who normally I despise, made a surprisingly honest and passionate point about Bernie- he has been saying this for ever, and the Dems have missed it, because they havent been paying attention to the angry youts, etc.

      I hope Bernie gets taken down a notch, so this continues to chew all of them up, and drag on as the more the average citizen sees this- (and really- think back to when you were first starting work, family, etc- did you REALLY follow politics, until say a couple weeks prior to the election when you did your homework, if any to vote?

      Most of us here are news-hounds or fanatics, practically- most people in the rest of America, not so much. Maybe a third are engaged right now, so the longer the Dems drag it out, the better the chances people realize what a clown posse the Dems have running.

        Yup, he has been yelling forever but the Demonrats have not been paying attention because Bernie has been an Independent. He is only attaching himself to the Demonrat Party to USE them and their apparatus to catapult himself into the presidency. If he wins the nomination he will lose the election but…and it is a big butt….he will ‘fundamentally change’ the Demonrat party as their party leader. The last nominee runs the party.

        I’m sure you well know, but just in case anybody else doesn’t, when they do those stats (and of course his number is wrong and completely out of the stratosphere)… but when they do those stats, they include suicide as gun violence, they include police shooting people as gun violence, and they include Samaritans defending themselves as gun violence. Any supposedly accurate number is inflated by at least 60%, and his 150 million number he has apparently just created out of wholecloth.

    Fact Check: Pete Buttigieg Falsely Claims Americans Are Buying Weapons of War
    VERDICT: False. Buttigieg’s words alluded to the decades-old Democrat claim that AR-15s are weapons of war, but they are not. AR-15s are semiautomatic rifles.

    Fact Check: Bernie Sanders Blames Trump for Homelessness Concentrated in Blue States
    VERDICT: False. The overwhelming majority of the homeless population is actually concentrated in blue states and was a crisis l0ng before Trump was elected president. California, for example, is home to nearly half of the entire United States’ unsheltered homeless population.

    Fact Check: Bernie Sanders Claims Medicare for All Would Save Money
    VERDICT: False. Medicare for All raises spending dramatically.

    Fact Check: Bernie Sanders Claims Trump’s Economy ‘Not So Good’ for Working Class Americans

    Their solution to every problem is to raise taxes and spend more of your money. Their criticism of Trump is consistently that he cut funding and lowered taxes, LOL

    All the stuff they complain about I go “Hmmm… I didn’t know he cut that! Man, he’s better than I thought!”

    Plus it’s all on baseline accounting anyways, if a program is projected to go up 10% this year, and it only goes up 5%, they call that a 50% cut!

    “He cut funding 50%!” in Democrat dumbass speak means “He raised funding 5%” !

    I don’t know if everybody knows about that, but it’s the truth, they should talk about this more.

    If funding for something is 1 billion, and it’s scheduled to go to 1.1 billion next year… if Trump cuts that so that now it will only be 1.05 billion next year, the democrats call that a 50% CUT. 50%!

    In reality, it’s a 5% increase. Baseline budgeting, it’s the main way they screw us.

      In the four Uniparty administrations since Bush the First surrendered our sovereignty over to to the Rio accords, the Globalists have faced zero opposition. Americans did not even know they were voting their own demise.

      After Obama’s Uniparty regime, they thought they has us. Jebillary would sign us up to TPP and global governance and puppets like Justine could be propped up on the posts.

    This actually happened to Scalise so that Obama could have a SCOTUS nominee in an effort to tip the court radical just before Trump took office. McConnell blocked that appointment thank goodness.
