Bernie Sanders Survives Heart Attack, But Heart Problems Deal Death Blow to His Campaign

The Democratic presidential field is dominated by three septuagenarians: the surly septuagenarian Sen. Bernie Sanders, the studious septuagenarian Sen. Elizabeth Warren and the silly septuagenarian former vice president Joe Biden.

Biden, 76 has been sliding in the polls because of his gaffes and as a casualty of the Ukraine Whistleblower scandal. Neither Joe Biden nor his son, Hunter Biden, did anything illegal in Ukraine, but it’s the epitome of swampy behavior that Hunter was given a job in Ukraine that paid $50,00 a month as a board member of a natural gas company, while dear old dad was the point man on Ukraine for the Obama administration.

Warren, 70 has eclipsed Sanders as the progressive alternative to the moderate Biden, and she is now the favorite to win the nomination.

On Friday Sanders, 78, suffered a heart attack that’s invited new scrutiny of his age, health, and physical ability to keep up with the rigors of a national campaign. Sanders may have survived the heart attack, but it probably delivered a death blow to his campaign.

Sanders released a video hours after he was discharged from a Las Vegas hospital, thanking well-wishers and displayed a huge smile and a promise to return soon to the campaign trail.

But Sanders isn’t fooling everyone, the surly and cranky socialist is too damn sickly and old to be president of the United States. His progressive ideas of Medicare for all, free college tuition, and an aggressive climate change agenda have been embraced by almost all the Democratic hopefuls, so why not step aside and allow a younger candidate to challenge the decrepit, unethical, immoral and vulgar septuagenarian, Donald Trump?

Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders Better Not Run for President in 2020

Old Socialist

Of the nine candidates officially running in the Democratic presidential primary, only one is a heterosexual white man. The man who sticks out like a sore thumb in the diverse field of minority and female presidential hopefuls is former Rep. John Delaney. Delaney is as bland and boring as a soggy slice of white bread, and he has zero name recognition outside of his immediate family. Delaney is such a nonentity that he has only four thousand more Twitter followers than this humble blogger.

You might be wondering “where are all the Democratic white male politicians with presidential ambitions”? They are testing the waters, they are either too timid to run, or perhaps they sense that in this election cycle there is no room for them.

The most famous of the Democratic white male politicians who still haven`t declare their candidacy are the three B`s: Beto, Bernie and Biden.

Let`s address the two septuagenarians first: Sen. Bernie Sanders gave Hillary Clinton a run for her money in 2016, but he isn`t a novelty anymore. Almost all of the Democratic candidates have embraced his socialist agenda, and he can`t compete with charismatic liberals like Sen. Kamala Harris and Sen. Cory Booker. Sanders is just a cranky old codger now, propped up by a band of misogynist bros.

Then there`s the former vice president, Joe Biden, but he`s too old, too moderate, too gaffe-prone, and too enamored of little girls. The third time won`t be the charm for this old reprobate, unlike Donald Trump he`s not Teflon-coated, and his campaign would sink before it has a chance to take off.

Former Rep. Beto O`Rourke is the only one with a chance of overcoming the disadvantage of being a heterosexual white male, he`s young, charismatic and liberal.

My advice for Biden is to retire and spend the rest of his days watching the little girls play in the playground, under the supervision of an adult. I would counsel Sanders to atone for the rampant misogyny in his 2016 presidential campaign by remaining in the Senate, and volunteering for women`s rights organizations.

Sen. Bernie Sanders Praises Donald Trump

“Sen. Bernie Sanders once called Donald Trump a `pathological liar,` but at a forum at George Washington University in Washington, DC, the self-described socialist praised the president-elect`s extraordinary accomplishment in winning the White House.

`Trump took on the Republican establishment, he took on the Democratic establishment, took on the media establishment and he ended up winning the election to become president of the United States. And that is an extraordinary accomplishment. And it talks about perseverance, it talks about very strong political instincts, it talks about a way to connect with people,` Sanders said.

`So I give Donald Trump his due,` he said.”

The New York Post

I echo Sen. Sanders` sentiments, Trump deserves our grudging admiration for taking on the Democratic establishment and the Republican establishment, and destroying the Clinton and Bush dynasties in the process.

In prevailing over the establishment of both major parties, and exposing the mainstream media as stooges of the Democratic party, Trump advanced the cause of liberty, freedom and democracy.

Trump`s populist appeal transcended party labels, and we can only hope and pray that he won`t forget the dreams and aspirations of ordinary working people now that he`s President of the United States. We must hold Trump`s tiny hands to the fire to ensure that he fulfills the promises he made to the working class.

Trump is an ignorant clown, and if he doesn`t blow up the world, I will at least give him credit for blowing up the establishment — for that I will be eternally grateful.

Even though Trump and Sanders are on opposite ends of the political spectrum they have a lot in common, they are both populist leaders who fought the establishment. I supported Sanders in the Democratic primaries, and he would have won the Democratic nomination if he fought the Democratic establishment with as much vigor as Trump fought the Republican establishment.

When it became crystal clear that the DNC was 100% behind Hillary Clinton, Sanders failed to denounce the corrupt organization in no uncertain terms. It also boggles the mind why Sanders gave Hillary a pass on her email scandal.

Trump is president in large part because Sanders failed to live up to his reputation as a revolutionary. Some revolutionary, in the end he enthusiastically supported the corrupt Hillary.

I`m not surprised to see Sanders give props to a fellow revolutionary for winning the election by blowing up the system.

Autopsy of Hillary Clinton’s Campaign by Robert Paul Reyes

In her 2016 presidential campaign Hillary Clinton surrounded herself with sycophants, big donors, and campaign aides who had stood by her for decades.

When you`re surrounded by enablers who tell you that your feces smells like perfume, your screeching voice sounds like a tape of ambient sounds calculated to lull listeners to sleep, and your seizures are an endearing physical trait, of course you`re going to think you`re invincible.

If the electorate were compromised primarily of feminists, lesbians, and establishment Democrats Hillary would have won in a landslide.

It`s impossible to exaggerate what an overwhelming favorite Hillary was both in her primary fight against Senator Bernie Sanders and in the general election clash against Donald Trump. Hillary was the most formidable non-incumbent front-runner for the White House in modern political history.

Hillary`s hubris led her to underestimate Sander`s appeal from the get-go, and she didn`t take him seriously until he started to win one contest after another. It was only because the Democratic primary system was rigged against Sanders, that she was able to finally prevail against the cranky Socialist Jewish septuagenarian.

A primary that was expected to be a coronation turned into a bruising marathon — exposing the lack of enthusiasm for Hillary, particularly among Millennials, African Americans and Latinos.

Hillary didn`t learn any lessons from her epic battle with Sanders, her pride was intact, and she felt she didn`t need to come up with a comprehensive strategy to defeat Donald Trump. Her campaign message was basically: Donald Trump is a racist clown, and I`m an enlightened progressive with a vagina.

Hilary has blamed FBI director James Comey, Putin, and the leaked Podesta emails for her humiliating loss. But Hillary lost to a billionaire buffoon because she was a weak candidate with a weak message and a weak political strategy of ignoring the blue states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

The 2016 presidential election doesn`t mean that America embraced the racism and pessimism of Donald Trump, so much as it signifies that we rejected the corruption, pride and status quo inertia of Hillary Clinton.

Trump wasn`t the best candidate we have seen, but arguably Hillary was the worst candidate in modern political history.
