Sanders supporters fume as Clinton allies named to key Dem convention committees

Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders‘ White House bid and some Democratic National Committee members are frustrated with some initial appointments made by DNC Chairman Tom Perez to the crucial committees that will oversee the rules and party platform at this summer’s presidential nominating convention in Milwaukee, Wis.

Their frustration comes after Perez named former Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts – who was a surrogate for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign — as co-chair of the convention’s Rules Committee. And Perez picked John Podesta – who served as Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager – to have a seat on the committee.

CLINTON PUSHES BACK AGAINST CRITICISM OF HER JABS AT SANDERS

The populist independent Vermont senator lost a long and divisive primary nomination battle to Clinton four years ago, in which Sanders supporters felt the DNC was stacked against their candidate’s outsider run for the White House. Four years later, many Sanders allies and supporters remain suspicious of the DNC.

While the Sanders campaign didn’t respond for comment, national co-chair Nina Turner slammed the appointments as “an embarrassment” and a “slap in the face” in an interview with the progressive online news channel Status Coup.

And DNC committee member Yasmine Taeb – who backed Sanders in 2016 but remains neutral this cycle – told The Hill  that “there’s a very small number of appointments of allies to Sen. Sanders.”

“The appointments also include individuals that are outright hostile to Bernie Sanders and his supporters,” she added. “It’s not the message the DNC should be sending to the grassroots right now when we’re all working aggressively to defeat the racist in the White House.”

Two other DNC committee members – who asked to remain anonymous to speak more freely – told Fox News they were troubled by the appointments.

But the appointments are a small fraction of the 187 who will eventually serve on the committees – with most of the members determined in proportion to the number of delegates the presidential candidates win during the primaries and caucuses.

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL RACE

“Our rules require the DNC chair to make a small fraction of appointments to three standing committees for the convention, and these appointments reflect the rich diversity of our party,”  DNC national press secretary Brandon Gassaway said.

“The remaining appointments will be made based on each state’s election results. 2016 presidential preference was not considered for this convention’s appointments. We are grateful for these appointees’ commitment to the party and look forward to an energized convention where we will nominate the next president of the United States,” he added.

And there’s already a couple of high-profile Sanders supporters who’ve been appointed to the committees as well, including Larry Cohen, a co-founder pro-Sanders group “Our Revolution.”

Cal Thomas: 2020 election – Our campaigns have become endless wars. There is a way to fix our broken system

I love Ireland for its natural beauty, its people, its food (some of it), its music, its writers and especially its elections, which are shorter, less costly and designed to engage citizens and boost voter turnout.

On January 14, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar called a general election for February 8. That means a campaign of slightly more than three weeks. In the process, the Irish Parliament was dissolved. What a delightful thought. If only the U.S. Congress could be at least occasionally dissolved. It could use some dissolving, or at least disinfecting, after the toxic impeachment and trial of President Trump.

Unlike Irish politics, U.S. election campaigns increasingly resemble endless wars. Like those wars, campaigns cost too much and never seem to resolve the conflict.

LIZ PEEK: SHOWBOATING SCHIFF SCUPPERS IMPEACHMENT TRIAL – HERE’S HOW HE FAILED TO MAKE A CASE

Multi-billionaire Michael Bloomberg says he is willing to spend up to $1 billion of his fortune to either win the Democratic nomination, or if he doesn’t, to help the eventual nominee defeat President Trump. Recent presidential campaigns have cost over 1 billion (some estimates put the cost of 2020 ad spending alone at over $6 billion), so Bloomberg’s spending will ensure this year’s presidential campaign will set another record.

As soon — or possibly before — this election season ends, people will be talking about 2024 and 2028. It never ends and real problems are rarely solved.

The process begins with candidates establishing “exploratory committees” during which the “explorer” speaks about carefully poll-tested subjects and repeats them ad nauseum, while fundraising and appearing on TV.

Does any of this time and money spent produce real solutions to obvious problems, such as reforming entitlement programs and reducing debt? If it did, by now, wouldn’t those solutions have been implemented? The goal of too many politicians is not solving problems but getting elected and then re-elected.

As soon — or possibly before — this election season ends, people will be talking about 2024 and 2028. It never ends and real problems are rarely solved.

All of this contributes to generally low voter turnout compared to other developed nations. This gives power to activists on both the left and right, which skews the results and gives no clear picture of where most Americans would like to see the country go. For example, consider how often the parties exchange power in Congress and the presidency. Why do we elect a liberal like President Obama and then eight years later elect President Trump, who has been enacting and promoting the conservative agenda?

Ireland isn’t the only country that has sane campaign and election practices.

In 1926, the longest Canadian election — from announcement to voting — was 10 weeks.

According to mic.com, an American internet and media company based in New York City that caters to millennials, “Election spending is strictly limited in the U.K. Each party cannot spend more than $29.5 million in the year before the election. The New York Times reported that the combined spending of both major British political parties in 2010 came out to around the same amount as the American presidential candidates spent … on expenses related to raising money in 2012.”

German political parties may not release more than one 90-second television political ad during a campaign. That would not please U.S. networks and local stations, which make a fortune from political ads. TV expenses in America are a major contributor to the escalating costs of campaigns, even though studies show the ads change few minds.

Brazilian elections are held on weekends, making it more convenient.

Not every country’s campaign and election practices may be worthy of copying in the U.S., but some are. Why can’t we learn from others to improve the process by which we nominate candidates and elect presidents? We can, but will we? A corollary question: What’s stopping us? The answer: only our lack of will.

Peter Schweizer: Bernie Sanders rails about common good but public service has made him (and his family) rich

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6126653980001_6126655268001-vs Peter Schweizer: Bernie Sanders rails about common good but public service has made him (and his family) rich Peter Schweizer fox-news/politics/senate/democrats fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 99beafc0-2b22-58e6-82e4-48e006c5074b

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has been a loud and constant voice for socialist policies throughout his 30 years in Washington, D.C., a self-proclaimed champion of the collective good. But in researching my new book, “Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Political Elite,” I discovered that while Sanders may talk about the common good, his public service has made him and his family quite wealthy.

Perhaps no one has benefited more from Sanders’s career in politics than his wife Jane.

When Bernie was first elected mayor of Burlington, Vermont, he appointed his then-girlfriend, Jane Driscoll, to head his administration’s Youth Office. Though the position was originally unpaid, Bernie eventually put Jane on the payroll over objections of the city council. The job was never advertised so that others could apply. A local paper noted that Sanders never bothered to provide evidence as to Jane’s “qualifications” for the position.

PICK YOUR POLL: EITHER SANDERS OR BIDEN IS LEADING IN IOWA

The appointment would remain a source of controversy for Sanders. After Bernie and Jane got married in 1988, his new wife received a big pay increase. As one local newspaper reported, “Political sparks flew at Burlington’s annual city meeting Monday night as Democratic aldermen raised a series of questions concerning a hefty pay raise for Mayor Bernie Sanders’ new wife and whether she should continue to hold her job as director of the Mayor’s Youth Office.”

After Bernie won election to Congress in 1990, Jane’s business ties to her husband rose to a new level.

In Washington, Jane became one of her husband’s top aides, serving at various times as his chief of staff, press secretary and political analyst. After a decade in Congress, Jane and family went about setting up a company that operated under three different names to provide income tied to Bernie’s political career.

On Sept. 27, 2000, the family formed Sanders & Driscoll LLC, a for-profit consulting company run by Jane, her daughter Carina, and son David. The business also operated under two trade names: Leadership Strategies and Progressive Media Strategies.

The fact that this entity and its aliases were formed just weeks before the 2000 election is significant. The Sanderses ran these out of their home on Killarney Drive in Burlington. These entities served as financial conduits to run cash to the Sanders family.

It is impossible to know precisely how much because Sanders’ financial disclosure forms, which he is required to release as a member of Congress, only listed “more than $1,000” as the amount of income they earned from these consulting firms. We do know that some of Bernie’s campaign dollars flowed through the LLCs. While running for House reelection in the early 2000s, critics claimed, “Sanders doled out more than $150,000 to his wife and stepdaughter for campaign-related work between 2000 and 2004.”

More from Opinion

Some of the campaign money flowing to the family from Bernie’s campaign came as Jane served as a “media buyer” for his reelection. Media buying is a murky but potentially highly lucrative stream of income for those involved in political campaigns. Modern American political campaigns spend large sums of money on television and other forms of media. A media buyer handles the purchase of airtime and secures the contracts with media outlets.

Typically, a media buyer receives a commission of about 15 percent of the cost for a media campaign. So if a campaign were to spend, say, $1,000,000 on television ads, the media buyer would pocket a $150,000 commission. But here’s the kicker: the media buyer commission is not actually disclosed anywhere. Filings with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) only require disclosure of the bulk amount of the media buy. In this example, the FEC report will only disclose the $1,000,000 media buy. And as for the fact that Jane Sanders is the spouse of a politician, she is only required to disclose that she earns “more than $1,000” from her businesses.

What is interesting about the Sanders family foray into media buying, in particular, is that Jane Sanders had no apparent background in media buying. But in her husband’s 2006 campaign, she worked with two media buyers named Barbara Abar Bougie and Shelli Hutton-Hartig – two names that would become significant when Bernie’s political ambitions went national.

Bernie Sanders’s insurgent 2016 presidential campaign brought in a huge sum of money. A large chunk of it — nearly $83 million — flowed to a mysterious limited liability company with no website, no phone number, and no office space. Indeed, the LLC was registered to a private home on a cul-de-sac in suburban Virginia.

The mysterious company is called Old Towne Media LLC. Two names connected to the company are Barbara Abar Bougie and Shelli Hutton-Hartig, Jane’s associates from the 2006 campaign.

The Sanders campaign purchased a whopping $82.77 million in political ads through Old Towne Media, which could have earned the company a media fee of more than $12 million, based on the industry standard for ad-buy commissions. Was Jane Sanders somehow involved in this financial arrangement? FEC disclosures make it easy to hide where media buying fees actually go. Jane listed her income from her professional work at the time as simply “more than $1,000.”

When a highly respected Vermont reporter named Jasper Craven, working for the nonprofit VTDigger.com, asked Jane about Old Towne Media during a phone interview, she replied, “I have no idea what Old Towne Media is.” Then she hung up the phone.

Even when Jane got a job not working for Bernie, it still seemed to be connected to his political position.

In 2004, Jane was appointed head of Burlington College, a private school with fewer than two hundred students. One of the board members of the college admitted that Jane’s marriage to Bernie played a big role in her hiring because they thought that it would help with fundraising.

Attending Burlington College was not cheap; tuition was over $23,000 a year in 2014-15. In addition, the college received millions in federal money over the years and students could apply for federal government–supported student loans. That flow of money provided funds that could be directed into family enterprises. And Jane steered Burlington College resources in the same direction as Bernie did his campaign money: it went to the family.

Beginning in 2009, the nonprofit Burlington College agreed to a deal with the for-profit Vermont Woodworking School to set up a carpentry program. The school, launched two years earlier, was not accredited and happened to be owned by Jane’s daughter, Carina. Burlington College had never had a woodworking program before, and as when Bernie hired Jane to a city job while he was mayor, those outside the family were never invited to apply.

That first year of the alliance, the college gave Carina’s school $56,474 for “materials charges and lease of bench space.” By 2010, the cash flowing from the college to the family business was more than $133,000. Payments ballooned to $182,741 in rental costs alone by 2012. In total, Burlington College would funnel more than $500,000 to Carina’s woodworking school.

The transactions are notable because Burlington College at the time was struggling to pay its own faculty and bills.

Carina’s school also received at least one federal grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to install biomass heating. At the time, Sen. Bernie Sanders sat on the powerful Senate Budget Committee, with financial oversight of the USDA budget.

Despite the academic failings of the college, its continuing financial difficulties, and the growing river of funds that were flowing to her daughter’s business, Jane’s salary as president continued to rise. By 2009, she was making $160,000, including benefits.

It soon became apparent that the college did not have enough money coming in to pay its debts, and it started falling behind in its loan payments. The board of directors asked Jane to leave in 2011. She received a $200,000 severance on the way out.

Five years later, the college collapsed.

Sally Pipes: Doctors need a second opinion on ‘Medicare-for-all’

Westlake Legal Group Bernie-Sanders- Sally Pipes: Doctors need a second opinion on 'Medicare-for-all' Sally Pipes fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/opinion fox-news/health fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 99113624-1a48-5334-9c2d-89b20fad287d

The American College of Physicians, the nation’s second-largest doctors group, has endorsed “Medicare-for-all.” The group, whose membership consists of 159,000 internists, claims the plan would bring a host of necessary changes to the American healthcare system.

The American College of Physicians joins the American Nurses Association, the American Medical Association’s Medical Student Section, and at least a dozen other medical professional groups who have called for the United States to implement a single-payer health care system.

These doctors may soon regret their decision. “Medicare-for-all” would saddle physicians with pay cuts, long hours, and rolls of regulatory red tape. That would cause even more doctors to burn out — and leave millions of Americans without access to quality care.

VARNEY: BERNIE SANDERS WILL LOSE SUPPORT WHEN FAILURES IN VERMONT SURFACE

Doctors have seen better days. More than 40 percent of physicians say they’re burnt out, according to a recent survey by Medscape. Over half of the doctors surveyed pointed to bureaucratic tasks as the leading contributor to burnout. One-third said long hours were a major stressor; a similar share pointed to insufficient pay. Sixteen percent said government regulations were to blame.

“Medicare-for-all” would exacerbate these problems. For starters, it would drown doctors in regulations and bureaucratic tasks. The “Medicare-for-all” proposal offered by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., would establish “uniform reporting standards” that would order providers to report information on procedures, prices, and outcomes to the federal government.

Doctors also better prepare to work longer hours for less money. “Medicare-for-all” would make health care free at the point of access. That would encourage Americans to consume more care than they currently do. Providers would have to spend more time on the clock to keep up with demand.

More from Opinion

And they’d receive less money for each hour they log. If “Medicare-for-all” adheres to Medicare’s existing payment schedule, then doctors would receive 9 percent less for every office visit and 60 percent less for every emergency department visit, relative to average private in-network rates, according to one analysis published by JAMA, a medical journal.

Canadian doctors are stretched so thin that some prohibit patients from discussing more than one issue per appointment.

Medicare’s payment rates are projected to be 40 percent lower than those for private insurance over the first ten years of Medicare-for-all’s implementation, according to the Mercatus Center’s Charles Blahous. That would represent some kind of pay cut for doctors.

By making physicians’ lives more miserable, “Medicare-for-all” would drive many from the profession. Already, about half of physicians say they want to change career paths; 17 percent are planning to retire.

A “Medicare-for-all”-induced exodus would exacerbate America’s doctor shortage. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, the United States will face a shortage of more than 120,000 physicians by 2032. Patients everywhere would struggle to get timely care, particularly in rural and urban areas.

None of this is hypothetical. It’s the reality for doctors in countries with single payer. In the United Kingdom, nearly 60 percent of the National Health Service’s staff work unpaid overtime each week, according to the organization’s latest staff survey. The average physician in the United Kingdom takes home around $138,000 a year — considerably less than the $313,000 earned by the average American doctor.

Between the long hours and lackluster compensation, the NHS struggles to retain doctors. The NHS had over 9,000 doctor vacancies as of March 2019. Things are poised to get worse. A group of British think tanks predict the NHS will be short 7,000 full-time general practitioners by 2024, if current trends continue.

By forcing doctors to endure poor working conditions, single-payer hurts patients as well. In part because the NHS doesn’t have enough doctors to treat every patient on schedule, 9 million Britons had hospital appointments and operations canceled between 2017 and 2018. Many of the patients fortunate enough to get an appointment are treated in dangerously understaffed facilities. Some general practitioners see more than 70 patients per day. Nine in 10 NHS hospital bosses say that staffing shortages could harm patients’ health.

Things aren’t much better in Canada. Canadian doctors are stretched so thin that some prohibit patients from discussing more than one issue per appointment.

Of course, that only applies to the lucky few who can get appointments. Last year, an estimated 175,000 people in Canada’s four easternmost provinces were waiting to be matched with a family doctor. All told, Canadians were waiting for over a million procedures in 2019.

The American College of Physicians claims “Medicare-for-all” would give Americans access to free, quality health care. In reality, it would make things worse for every single American, starting with physicians themselves.

AOC bashes ICE, Sanders bashes Trump during Iowa rally

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez urged supporters of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Saturday night to start “tipping people off” if they see federal immigration authorities taking action against illegal immigrants in their communities.

It was just one of many tips the New York Democrat had for a crowd in Ames, Iowa, as she continued stumping for Sanders ahead of the state’s presidential caucuses on Feb. 3.

Unlike a Friday night event in Iowa City, in which Ocasio-Cortez promoted progressive causes like the Green New Deal, government-funded health care and immigration reform — but never mentioned the name of Sanders, who was absent because of Senate impeachment trial duties in Washington — the 30-year-old freshman congresswoman on Saturday, with the 78-year-old Sanders now in attendance, reminded the crowd who she supported.

BERNIE SANDERS SURGES IN LATEST POLLS AS IOWA CAUCUSES LOOM

“We need a true Green New Deal in this country,” she said. “Sen. Sanders has the largest plan in the field to address the climate crisis. I’m here because we need true immigration justice. And I’m not here to reform some of these systems when we talk about immigration, I’m here because Sen. Sanders has truly committed to breaking up ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and CBP (Customs and Border Protection).”

As for Sanders himself, the independent U.S. senator from Vermont spent much of his speech in Ames blasting President Trump — just one week after Trump defended Sanders following an attack by his Democratic progressive rival, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

“What we can agree on is that in our great country, we should not have a president who is a pathological liar,” Sanders said. “We should not have a president who is running a corrupt administration. We should not have a president who is a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, a xenophobe and a religious bigot.”

“We can have our differences of opinion,” Sanders added. “But we do not need somebody like Donald Trump in the White House, who forces parents to turn off the TV when kids are in the room – who is an embarrassment to us all over the world.”

The Vermont progressive also referred to Trump as “the most dangerous president in the modern history of America” and claimed his policies on climate change threaten the entire world.

“Donald Trump is doing many bad things for our country,” he said. “In terms of climate change, he is rejecting science. We cannot have a government that rejects science.”

Sanders also echoed Ocasio-Cortez’s emphasis on engaging young voters and said increasing voter turnout is the only way to make a lasting impact, that transcends the ballot box.

“If you are tired of student debt — if you are sick and tired and scared about climate change — If you are disgusted with racism and sexism… if you believe health care is a human right, you can’t sit it out,” he said.

“You can’t complain. You have to be involved. If young people were to vote in Iowa and in this national election at the same rate as older people — not only will we beat Trump, but we lay the groundwork for transforming this country.”

As for his policy agenda, Sanders echoed his previous calls for a Green New Deal, Medicare-for-all, and the elimination of student debt.

“We can cancel all student debt in America with a modest tax on Wall Street speculation,” he proposed.

Andrew McCarthy: Trump impeachment trial should let him justify why he wanted Bidens investigated

When you get to court, though, you are horrified to learn that the judge is excluding your defense. The prosecutors peremptorily assert that it’s all a big lie. The judge doesn’t want to hear your constitutional claims about the rights to present a defense and call witnesses; your motion to subpoena evidence is denied.

Then, at the trial, not only do the prosecutors establish that you planned to take millions from the bank; they tell the jury there was not a shred of evidence that you had any legitimate collateral or business investment prospects. The whole thing, they insist, was a scam.

That is, they stop you from presenting your defense, and then they argue that you should be convicted because you have no defense.

TRUMP LEGAL TEAM GOES ON OFFENSE IN IMPEACHMENT TRIAL, ACCUSE DEMOCRATS OF ‘MASSIVE’ ELECTION INTERFERENCE

It sounds like something out of Kafka. It would never be tolerated in the U.S. judicial system: no competent judge would bar an accused from attempting to prove his defense; and if one did, any conviction would be reversed on appeal.

It would not matter whether the prosecutor’s proof was convincing; having one’s day in court means having an opportunity to present any exculpatory evidence.

Yet, what I’ve just described is essentially what House Democrats have done to President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial on the matter of the Bidens and Burisma.

One of the most effective summations in the House impeachment managers’ presentation to the Senate on Thursday was given by Representative Sylvia Garcia, a freshman Democrat from Texas who used to be the presiding judge in Houston’s municipal court system.

Garcia took direct aim at claims about suspected Biden self-dealing in Ukraine that have been advanced by President Trump and his defenders, particularly House Republicans and Rudy Giuliani, the president’s private lawyer.

Sen. Jim Inhofe: Dems have no case, just want to drag out impeachment ahead of election

Senate Democrats and House managers in the impeachment trial against President Trump want to drag out proceedings as long as they can prior to the November electionRepublican Sen. Jim Inhofe from Oklahoma said Saturday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend” with hosts Griff Jenkins, Pete Hegseth and Lisa Boothe, Inhofe said that the “whole purpose of this is” trying to “beat up” the president as opposed to “doing the things we need to be doing.”

“I was sitting there, listening,” he told the “Friends: Weekend” hosts. “We heard the same thing over… Every nasty word they could say about the president, they did. And yet… they’re trying to get more witnesses in all this. They just want to drag this thing out.”

“Here we have a president that’s given us the best economy of my life and rebuilding the military that was destroyed… I mean, he’s doing great things. And yet, they want to be talking about impeachment between now and November,” he remarked. “We’re not going to let them do that.”

TRUMP LEGAL TEAM GOES ON OFFENSE IN IMPEACHMENT TRIAL, ACCUSE DEMOCRATS OF ‘MASSIVE’ ELECTION INTERFERENCE

Saturday was the first chance Trump’s lawyers had to refute the House’s case. In a two-hour preview of their legal argument, White House counsel Pat Cipollone said Democrats have no case and are doing damage to democracy by trying to undermine the will of American voters.

“For all their talk about election interference, they’re here to perpetrate the most massive interference in an election in American history,” Cipollone said in his opening remarks to the Senate. “And we can’t allow that to happen.”

Conversely, the Democrats have argued that Trump’s high crimes and misdemeanors are such an offense to the Constitution and a threat to the fairness of the 2020 election that senators must remove him from office immediately, rather than wait for voters to decide at the ballot box in November.

Cipollone and his team will have three days and up to 24 hours to launch their defense — the same amount of time as House managers.

With little hope of winning a conviction in the GOP-controlled Senate, Democrats have turned their attention to forcing a vote on calling additional witnesses and obtaining White House documents, which would take the support of just 51 senators — or four GOP defections.

Inhofe said he would imagine that the House managers, led by Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., will try to get that vote when the trial resumes on Monday.

“I think that Schiff is going to try to use that… because he had the opportunity to have all the witnesses they wanted to. They could have continued with their survey in the very beginning that set this thing up and they elected not to do it,” he said.

“Monday and Tuesday will be major days,” the Oklahoma Senator said. “Now, keep in mind, right after that we’ll have a chance to… clarify anything or ask questions. But, no I think that… I don’t think you need all that time and the reason you have so many pages of information, of stuff that they came up with over the last four days on Schiff’s group, is that they don’t have a case.”

“This guy’s doing a good job and you know… they hate the guy,” he said of how Democrats feel about the president. “But, nonetheless, we’re going to win — they’re going to lose.”

Inhofe told Hegseth, Jenkins and Boothe that he believes the trial could wrap up within the next week.

AOC, Michael Moore pinch-hit at Iowa rally with Bernie Sanders in DC for Trump’s Senate impeachment trial

Westlake Legal Group AOC-Bernie AOC, Michael Moore pinch-hit at Iowa rally with Bernie Sanders in DC for Trump's Senate impeachment trial Nick Givas fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox news fnc/politics fnc article abba47f5-288b-5a8b-87a0-6f175123bb51

With Bernie Sanders tied up in Washington at President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, a couple of his high-profie supporters filled in for him Friday at a campaign rally in Iowa.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and liberal filmmaker Michael Moore shared the duties for the 2020 presidential candidate in Iowa City.

The rally was held one day after Sanders faced backlash from many Democrats after tweeting support for controversial podcast host Joe Rogan.

After several other guests spoke, Moore stepped up to the podium and began incessantly praising Sanders, an independent U.S. senator from Vermont. Moore claimed that watching Sanders on the campaign trail has made him cry.

“I’m so excited about our possibilities here. Right here in Iowa,” Moore said. “Bernie was in Dubuque a couple of weeks ago and I scribbled this down here – I came to tears watching him say this.”

AOC BACKS SANDERS AT NEW YORK RALLY, CREDITS HIM WITH ‘FUNDAMENTALLY’ CHANGING POLITICS

“It was a Q-and-A at a big town hall and someone asked him if he thought he was too old to be president of the United States [and Bernie said] ‘I’ve been saying for months, I’ll tell you what’s too old — 40 million people in this country not having health care. That’s too old.’”

Moore championed Sanders for his policies on climate change, the minimum wage and his record on civil rights, before claiming Sanders is the only candidate who can defeat President Trump in November.

“We have to crush Donald J. Trump with the truth and with a candidate who is the opposite of Donald J. Trump,” he said.

At the end of his speech, Moore introduced Ocasio-Cortez and said she had “inspired” Sanders’ second run for the White House.

When Ocasio-Cortez got to the stage, however, she alluded to Sanders but didn’t mention his name once.

Instead, she echoed Moore’s call to take a risk and said voters shouldn’t settle for the status quo.

“It is bold and it is a risk,” she said. “We hedge our bets, we get more of the same. And the same has not been helping. So our job right now is to come together …We’ve got ten days left, ten days (until the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3).”

The New York Democrat also called for the abolition of two federal immigration agencies — Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP). She also advocated for Medicare-for-all, and suggested that political leaders craft the nation’s environmental policy around “indigenous wisdom.”

“This is not just about how we win, it’s about how we heal,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “From our bodies to this land, we are going to need entirely new paradigms of public policy in order to heal.”

BERNIE SANDERS CALLS INTO HIS OWN IOWA RALLY ON THE WAY BACK FROM IMPEACHMENT TRIAL

Earlier, Sanders had called in to the rally via phone and encouraged voters to support him in the upcoming caucuses.

The self-described democratic socialist then thanked Ocasio-Cortez and Moore before launching into a list of reasons why he believes he’ll win the Democratic presidential nomination.

“We are going to win because we are developing an unprecedented multigenerational, multiracial, working-class movement which is prepared to take on the corporate elite and the entire One Percent and put together an administration that stands for justice,” he said. “Economic justice, social justice, racial justice, and environmental justice.”

Sanders, who referred to Trump as “the worst president in modern American history,” promised to raise the minimum wage, ease restrictions on unions, pass a Medicare-for-all bill, institute Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal proposal, reform the criminal justice system, preserve Roe. V. Wade, legalize marijuana in all 50 states and end the “demonization” of illegal immigrants.

“The time is long overdue for us to have a government an economy that works for all of us,” he added. “Not just the One Percent.”

Chris Stirewalt: This Democratic candidate is the ‘great bust’ of the 2020 election cycle

Fox News digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt called Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren the “great bust” of the 2020 election cycle Friday while reacting to her encounter with an Iowa voter.

“Elizabeth Warren is one of many Democrats who misjudged what the Democratic electorate looks like because they spend too much time on Twitter and think that ‘woke’ activism is where it’s at,” Stirewalt said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Friday.

WARREN PLEDGES TO BYPASS CONGRESS IF NEEDED TO WIPE OUT STUDENT LOAN DEBT

An angry father confronted Warren, D-Mass., telling her those who responsibly saved to pay for student loans themselves would get “screwed” under her student debt cancellation plan.

“I just wanted to ask one question. My daughter is getting out of school. I’ve saved all my money. She doesn’t have any student loans. Am I going to get my money back?” the father asked Warren in a photo line after a presidential campaign town hall in Grimes, Iowa, on Monday.

“Of course not,” Warren answered, without hesitation.

Stirewalt said that many voters have the same concerns as the father before adding that the encounter explained why former Vice President Joe Biden was leading the national Democratic primary polls.

“There are millions of Democratic voters out there who do the right things, who work two jobs, who pay their dues, who do all of the right stuff to send their kids to school. And what Elizabeth Warren is proposing is, for a lot of people with master’s degrees and doctorates and highly educated folks, to absolve them of debt that they racked up along the way,” Stirewalt said. “That’s why Joe Biden is winning. That’s why Joe Biden is ahead, is because he can talk to that voter. She just can’t figure it out.”

Later in the encounter, the man accused Warren of laughing at him, which she denied.

“Yeah, that’s exactly what you’re doing,” the man can be heard telling Warren. “We did the right thing and we get screwed.”

“I appreciate your time,” Warren responded.

Stirewalt panned Warren’s response.

“Her almost contemptuous attitude toward him, the disdain, the mockery, almost that she treats this person with, tells you why she has never lived up to the hype that was created for her by the political press,” Stirewalt said. “She has been the great bust of this cycle.”

Biden calls Trump comments on US troop injuries in Iraq missile attack ‘disgusting’

CLAREMONT, N.H. — Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden slammed President Trump on Friday for his comments about the injuries suffered by U.S. troops in Iraq resulting from the Iranian missile strike earlier this month, claiming that Trump “brushed off” possible cases of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

Biden, speaking Friday at a campaign event in New Hampshire, took aim at Trump, saying: “This week he brushed off the injuries sustained by those brave troops who were on the other side of the Iranian bombardment and missile attack in Iraq from Iran. And he said while they were being evaluated for traumatic brain injuries, he said no, they just have headaches.”

PENTAGON SAYS 34 INJURED IN IRANIAN MISSILE STRIKE ON U.S. TROOPS IN IRAQ

And the former vice president emphasized that there are “300,000 estimated people coming home from these wars suffering from post-traumatic stress as a consequence of being exposed to the traumatic brain injuries. And the idea that [it] is taken so lightly, I find it quite frankly disgusting.”

The Pentagon had said that at least 11 U.S. service members were transported to hospitals in Kuwait and Germany earlier this month after an Iranian missile attack at an air base in northern Iraq. The assault was in response to the American drone strike ordered by President Trump that killed Iranian military leader Qassem Soleimani. Some of those who were injured suffered possible cases of traumatic brain injuries.

The Pentagon now says 34 troops have been diagnosed with concussions from the Iranian missile attack on a base in Iraq more than two weeks ago, and half of those American troops have returned to duty in Iraq, according to a Defense Department spokesman; eight were sent to the U.S. for further treatment.

Asked on Wednesday about the injuries, the president said at a news conference before departing Davos, Switzerland, that “I heard they had headaches and a couple of other things,” adding: “I can report, it’s not very serious.”

When a reporter asked if he considered potential traumatic brain injury serious, Trump responded: “I don’t consider them very serious injuries relative to other injuries that I’ve seen.”

Biden — who’s late son Beau served in the war in Iraq — spoke around the same time as the Pentagon reported that 34 troops have now been diagnosed with concussions.

The former vice president also took aim at Trump over the president’s announcement this week that he will expand the current ban on travel from certain countries — including some that are majority Muslim — from coming to the U.S. The president called those restrictions, enacted two years ago, a “very powerful ban” that’s necessary to ensure national security.

Biden described the ban as “a betrayal of all the foundations of our American history, of freedom, religious freedom… It goes against everything we stand for. And now, after a three-year assault on our American values, Donald Trump says he wants to expand that ban, religious ban, to more countries.”

The former vice president emphasized that “this anti-Muslim bias is not only morally wrong, it’s like putting up a great big recruiting banner for terrorists.”

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

As Biden was speaking with voters following the event, a small group of environmental protesters held up signs, but their chants were drowned out by the loud music soundtrack playing at the campaign event.

Minutes later, as Biden was leaving the event, some of the protestors chanted “2050 is too late.” The candidate briefly spoke with them before departing. Biden, like some of his rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination, calls for reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 to combat climate change.

The demonstrators told Fox News that they weren’t protesting on behalf of any particular organization, but some said they belonged to the progressive organizing group Rights and Democracy.

Biden was introduced by New Hampshire House Speaker Steve Shurtleff, a Vietnam War veteran who recently endorsed Biden. Shurtleff told Fox News that “I think the race is going to be close.”

And he predicted that the primary is going to come down to “what the independent and undeclared voters do, what direction. I think they’re going to voter center, center-left.”

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden speaks with voters at campaign event in Claremont, NH on Jan. 24, 2020

Independent voters make up roughly 40 percent of the state’s electorate and can vote in either the Democratic or Republican primaries.

IS SANDERS SURGING IN THE STATE THAT HOLDS THE FIRST PRIMARY?

One of two new polls released this week in New Hampshire indicated Biden in a tie with Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders, who lives in neighboring Vermont. But the other survey indicated Sanders with a double-digit lead over the rest of the Democratic primary field.

Before leaving, Biden also briefly chatted with 93-year old Claire Snipes. The longtime Claremont resident, who said she was a big Biden supporter, recalled that she met John F. Kennedy when he was running for president in 1960.

She said she told Biden “he had to get to be president because I wanted to have a sixth president that I’d seen.”
