Bernie Sanders Says Hell Run For Re-election As An Independent

Bernie Sanders Says He’ll Run For Re-election As An Independent
“That’s what I’ve been doing for a long time and that’s what I’ll continue to do,” he said.

By Igor Bobic

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) confirmed he’ll run for re-election next year as an independent candidate.

“I am an independent, and I have always run in Vermont as an independent, while I caucus with the Democrats in the United States Senate,” Sanders said in an interview with New Hampshire’s Concord Monitor. “That’s what I’ve been doing for a long time and that’s what I’ll continue to do.”

Sanders, 76, is serving his second term in the Senate after winning re-election in 2012 with 71 percent of the vote. Last year, he was appointed to the Senate Democratic leadership team as outreach director.

Jimmy Carter: The Medias Been Harder on Trump Than Any Other President

Former President Jimmy Carter spoke out on the current President in an interview out last night with The New York Times‘ Maureen Dowd.

As Dowd writes, Carter sounded “eager” to work with Donald Trump on North Korea. He said he would even be willing to go there himself:

He said he has talked to Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, Trump’s national security adviser, who is a good friend, including at Zbigniew Brzezinski’s funeral when McMaster asked to sit next to Carter, but has so far gotten a negative response.

“I told him that I was available if they ever need me,” he said.

Don't think I'll trust Carter ever again. Sounds like he is sucking up to Trump for a trip to North Korea.

Amending to add this additional link: https://www.mediaite.com/print/jimmy-carter-no-evidence-russians-changed-any-votes-in-2016-election/

Carter has really gone off the rails here. If he had said one word to defend Obama from the birtherism or unfair attacks, he would have some credibility. At this point he is just sucking up to Trump. Disgusting!

The Media double standard continues

The media always holds democrats/progressives to a much higher standard than they do republicans/conservatives. The latest example: Harvey Weinstein.

This scandal is less than a week old and already some in the media are outraged that many Dems and progressives haven't denounced him yet. And I'm not talking about FAUX but CNN and MSNBC.

Now let's compare this to a similar scandal at FAUX with Bill O'Reilly and Roger Ailes. When those stories broke, no one in the media required republicans/conservatives to denounce either Ailes or O'Reilly, and to date very few have done so.

Liberal media, my ass!
