Bernie Sanders Surges Toward Nomination With Nevada Blow-Out (excerpt) (image not in original)
By endorsing single-payer health care, the radical Green New Deal, “free” college tuition, a $15 federal minimum wage, and the abolition of the Electoral College, Sanders has now made his left-wing progressive ideas the mainstream platform of the Democratic Party.
With a major win in Nevada, Sanders is on track to steal South Carolina from Biden’s safety net and sweep through Super Tuesday, when just more than a third of the delegates in the entire primary will be awarded. While Sanders might not capture every delegate, a strong performance may catapult Sanders to winning the 1,991 delegates needed to fend off a brokered convention in July.
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, however, looms large as one of the main wild cards poised to shake up the primary. Bloomberg has dumped more than $450 million into his presidential effort since making the late-entrance leap into the race in November. With a Forbes estimated net-worth of $61.9 billion, Bloomberg has no shortage of campaign cash to drown out his opponents on the airwaves and strip delegates from Sanders in the subsequent March primary states.
Davis: Bloomberg Spent Half A Billion To Get Scalped By A Fake Indian (excerpt) (image not in original)
“We’re getting to see in real time whether a candidate with no charisma, no real rationale for running, no base of support, can actually buy a nomination,” Davis said. “And I gotta say, I was kind of amazed. I think [the debate] may have been the first time in television history we saw a guy pay half a million dollars to get scalped by a fake Indian.” . . .
Davis said that in 2016, the Democratic establishment stole the nomination from Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and he believes that same establishment might be using Bloomberg to shamelessly stop Sanders again.
“If you look back at 2016, the Democrat establishment decided that they were going to make sure that Bernie Sanders wasn’t going to win the nomination, so they rigged it. And at least then they had enough shame and good sense to kind of hide it. And I think here in 2020 what we’re seeing is whether the Democrat establishment is going to use a billion dollars of someone else’s money, namely Mike Bloomberg’s, to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders,” Davis said.
Davis concluded by pointing out that Bloomberg’s name won’t appear on the Nevada caucus ballot, yet the Democratic National Committee (DNC) allowed Bloomberg to appear on the Nevada debate stage.
“Even in Nevada, where Mike Bloomberg isn’t even on the ballot. Somehow, the DNC decided that he got to be up there on that [debate] stage,” Davis said.
