It was proven in 2016 that quotes in past years are not a factor at all.

Your threshold for “proven” is much lower than mine. Assuming that the valid data actually can somehow demonstrate that, and assuming the substance of the actual quotes being bandied about had no bearing on the “factor” the quotes played, it was one election. Not much of a sample size from which to conclude that something was “proven.”

We shall see in the primary....not sure his competition will let his past insensitive comments go....

As far as trying to regulate soft drink consumption by people only to have it thrown out by the courts, many of us won’t forget that level of stupidity.

In the Court of Popular Opinion, proof is obviously not required.

The comments about farming and manufacturing by Bloomberg are illustrative of what created Trump, and obvious that the D party has not learned any lessons from 2016. What I have seen of the debates, and stump speeches by all of them clearly show they're pandering to people where they're already going to win. Honest question does Bernie's message play in OH, PA, MI, WI, states anyone has to win?

The Socialist Delusions of Bernie Sanders: https://reason.com/2020/02/19/the-socialist-delusions-of-bernie-sanders/

Quote

Bernie Sanders leads the race for the Democratic nomination.

He may become America's first self-described "democratic socialist" president.

What does that mean?

Today, when Sanders talks about socialism, he says: "I'm not looking at Cuba. I'm looking at countries like Denmark and Sweden."

But Denmark and Sweden are not socialist. Denmark's prime minister even came to America to refute Sanders' claims, pointing out that "Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy."

Both Denmark and Sweden do give citizens government-run health care and have bigger welfare programs than America has. However,  recently, they've moved away from socialism. Because their socialist policies killed economic growth, they cut regulations and ended government control of many industries.

Sanders probably doesn't know that. He, like many young people, just loves the idea of socialism.

For my new video this week, Stossel TV producer Maxim Lott went through hours of Sanders' old speeches. What he found reveals a lot about what Sanders believes.

When Sanders was mayor of Burlington, Vermont, he went out of his way to defend Fidel Castro. "He educated the kids, gave them health care, totally transformed the society!" Fortunately, Sanders added, "Not to say Fidel Castro or Cuba are perfect."

No, they are not perfect. Castro's government tortured and murdered thousands. By confiscating private property, they destroyed the island's economy. Life got bad enough that thousands died trying to escape.

Even now in Cuba, most people try to live on less than $2 a day

Sanders focuses on other things, like: "They did a lot to eliminate illiteracy!"

Sanders has long had a soft spot for socialist countries. He chose to honeymoon in Communist Russia, where he said people "seem reasonably happy and content." He was "extremely impressed by their public transportation system…[the] cleanest, most effective mass transit system I've ever seen in my life!"

He praised Soviet youth programs: "Cultural programs go far beyond what we do in this country."

He did at least qualify his support, calling the Soviet government "authoritarian."

But Sanders made no such criticism after Nicaragua's socialist revolution. He praised the Sandinistas' land "reform" because they were "giving, for the first time in their lives, real land to farmers so that they can have something that they grow. Nobody denies that they are making significant progress."

Former landowners sure denied it. They'd had their land stolen. Sanders suggested that was OK because landowners are rich.

"Rich people, who used to have a good life there, are not terribly happy," he said. "As a socialist, the word socialism does not frighten me… (P)oor people respect that."

What about the hunger and poverty that socialism creates? Bernie had an odd take on that.

"American journalists talk about how bad a country is because people are lining up for food. That's a good thing! In other countries people don't line up for food; the rich get the food and the poor starve."

After he said he was "impressed" by Sandinista leaders, Sanders added, "Obviously I will be attacked by every editorial writer in the free press for being a dumb dupe."

I join them.

Bernie Sanders is indeed a "dumb dupe" about economics. Or as the Soviet Communists used to put it, "a useful idiot."

Under Ortega's rule, Nicaragua quickly fell further into poverty, and the socialists were voted out in 1990. Ortega later returned as a violent dictator. For most people in Nicaragua, Cuba, and other centrally planned economies, life is hell.

Once Sanders was elected to Congress, he mostly stopped praising violent socialist revolutions.

At that time, Communist governments in Europe were collapsing. It was convenient for embarrassed former supporters of those governments to rebrand themselves.

In Congress, Sanders would call himself an independent and, in the estimation of his fellow Vermonter, former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean, he "votes with the Democrats 98 percent of the time."

But Sanders has never taken back the enthusiastic praise he gave to socialist regimes.

There are any number of issues I take with any comparison of the US to Scandinavian countries. First and foremost is scale. Sweden for example is about the size of California. Yet has a population of less than 9 million people. Scandinavian countries are not big on immigration or accepting refugees. Yes personal taxes are somewhat high, but what makes the whole thing work is free markets. Low corporate taxes, less regulations, less government manipulation of the markets.

I questioned why Bloomberg would even get in these debates, he had absolutely nothing to gain and everything to lose, which pretty much exactly what happened last night in my opinion. He did make a couple of salient points, the self proclaimed socialist on the stage has three homes how does that work? When being beat up by Bernie about his wealth and lack of paying taxes, he agreed and said you made the laws. 

Bernie is becoming a bigger and bigger problem for the D's. Klobuchar, Warren, and Biden need to get out, their votes are siphoning votes away from anyone who could challenge Bernie, be it Mayor Pete or Bloomberg. I have said all along and still maintain, the D's will screw Bernie again, they realize if he's the nominee November will be a blood bath. 

The D's have been hedging their bets since the late summer, they've already told us the November election will be illegitimate, now the seeds are being planted that the D nominating process will be the same. I predict great entertainment moving towards Milwaukee.

Joe Biden Is Happy To Talk About Michael Bloomberg's Stop-and-Frisk Record Because It Distracts From His Own Terrible Crime Policies: https://reason.com/2020/02/19/joe-biden-is-happy-to-talk-about-michael-bloombergs-stop-and-frisk-record-because-it-distracts-from-his-own-terrible-crime-policies/

Quote

Let's be very clear about one thing: Michael Bloomberg's half-hearted apologies about stop-and-frisk are a bunch of bullshit.

In Wednesday's Democratic primary debate in Las Vegas, for example, the former New York City mayor attempted once again to appear contrite about the consequences of one of his signature policies, one that disproportionately (and purposefully, per Bloomberg's own comments) targeted minority communities. "If I go back and look at my time in office, the one thing I'm really worried about, embarrassed about is how it turned out with stop-and-frisk," Bloomberg said onstage before pivoting to talk about how crime rates fell in New York while he was mayor.

Bloomberg had to expect to be attacked over stop-and-frisk, so it's pretty sad that he couldn't come up with a more sincere-sounding answer. It's also telling that he phrased his response that way: "worried," then "embarrassed."

And crime rates? Yes, they fell in New York City—and kept falling after the constitution-shredding policy was mostly abandoned.

"It's not whether he apologies or not, it's the policy," former Vice President Joe Biden said, summing up the common-sense opinion of stop-and-frisk. "The policy was abhorrent."

But let's be clear about something else, too. One of the biggest beneficiaries of Wednesday night's dogpile on Bloomberg is Biden, whose own terrible record on criminal justice issues has suddenly fallen out of the spotlight. Unburdened from the role of apparent front-runner, Biden seems more comfortable on the attack—but his accurate criticism of Bloomberg's awfulness should not be allowed to obscure his own.

Need I remind you? Biden was instrumental in passing a 1984 anti-drug law that effectively created the modern civil asset forfeiture system, which law enforcement has regularly abused to seize cash, cars, homes, and other valuables from individuals who are often never charged with a crime.

In 1986, Biden co-sponsored the Anti-Drug Abuse Act—spurred by a moral panic over several high-profile deaths linked to cocaine—that added more mandatory minimum sentences for federal drug crimes, including the provision requiring a five-year prison term for anyone convicted of possessing 5 grams of crack cocaine or 500 grams of powdered cocaine. That massive discrepancy "unjustly and disproportionately" penalized African Americans and poor communities, the American Civil Liberties Union said in a 2006 report on the law.

Most famously, Biden championed the 1994 crime bill and its harsh "three-strikes" rule, which imposed life sentences for anyone convicted of a violent felony if they had two prior offenses on their record—including drug crimes.

If Bloomberg is guilty of empowering police officers to disregard individuals' rights in pursuit of elusive criminals, then Biden is equally guilty of empowering prosecutors to lock up those alleged "predators" and throw away the key.

In short, they represent two separate but equally important groups within the criminal justice system—and when it comes to empowering police and prosecutors to violate your rights, neither Bloomberg nor Biden have a record worth bragging about.

After the collapse of the failed impeachment trial, Dan Bingino predicted the Democrats would return to their "snuggy" blanket of Russia collusion. The liberal mainstream media is Fake News and are the enemy of the American people.
