Here we go with the left’s ‘no fracking’ nonsense again. The United States is basically energy-independent these days. We are also in an economic and energy boom phase. But Bolshevik Bernie wants to put an end to all that and cause our energy prices to skyrocket and for many in our country to do without energy because of it. Killing fracking also kills jobs. And the left’s braindead zombies rapturously look on and coo over socialism and its deadly policies of want and destruction.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has officially declared that he is running for the presidency in 2020 again at the spry age of 77-years-old. Part of his platform is pledging to ban the drilling technique that’s turned the U.S. into the world’s largest oil and natural gas producer. There is no credible proof out there that it is harmful in the least, yet Sanders wants to kill it off.
“Fracking pollutes water, degrades air quality and worsens climate change,” Sanders tweeted Tuesday. “When we are in the White House we are going to ban fracking nationwide and rapidly move to renewable energy.” Fracking does not pollute water if guidelines are followed and it does not degrade air quality either. As for climate change, that is leftist-speak meant to dupe Americans into coughing up ever more money so they can stay fat, happy, and filthy rich. It’s about control and power.
This came up in response to Oregon state lawmakers passing legislation to ban hydraulic fracturing or fracking. Of course, Oregon is full of wannabe communists these days, so that’s not surprising. This is not a new stance for Sanders. He also was spewing this nonsense in 2016. He wants to run on the Democratic ticket again this time but the Dems won’t accept him as their leader. He is very popular with the “keep it in the ground” movement. They want to ban fossil fuels due to global warming. Sanders has also promised not to take donations from the fossil fuel industry.
Fracking pollutes water, degrades air quality and worsens climate change. When we are in the White House we are going to ban fracking nationwide and rapidly move to renewable energy. Thank you @ORHouseDems for taking this important step to stop fracking. https://t.co/7Bc2jHHema

States such as uber-Marxist Vermont, New York, Maryland, and others have been trying to ban fracking for years. They use over-the-top scary propaganda and even with that, no one believes them. Just like Sanders, they cite water contamination, poor air quality, illness, earthquakes, and even birth defects.
Take for instance the “Gasland” film series that features faucets spouting fire because of fracked methane getting into the water supply. That has never been proven. In late 2016, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its five-year study of fracking and groundwater contamination. The EPA said that while fracking can potentially impact groundwater, the number of cases where that’s happened is small.
From The Daily Caller:
“The following year the U.S. Geological Survey published a study examining groundwater from 116 wells in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas. The study only found nine instances of contamination, but none were linked to fracking.
“That same year the Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas concluded that drinking water contamination from fracking “has not been observed in Texas.” Texas is the biggest oil and gas producing state.
“Fracking proponents also point to government data showing that increased natural gas production has reduced more carbon dioxide emissions than solar and wind power combined.
“Because of fracking, U.S. oil and natural gas production has surged to never-before-seen levels. U.S. oil output hit a record 12 million barrels per day in February, and natural gas production is expected to continue breaking records through 2020.”
And Bernie Sanders wants to kill all of that in the name of climate change and socialism. He is the granddaddy of the Green New Deal that Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) keeps pushing.
Bernie Sanders is running this time on the same platform he has run on for four decades.
From National Review:
“He’s making the same arguments for the same ideas about how America needs a socialist revolution that puts an end to millionaires and billionaires and private hospitals and moves social services from charities to government institutions. He’s always been friendly to leftist critics of America overseas and radicals eager to tear down the existing order and has been at best skeptical of U.S. military actions abroad (except during the Clinton administration) and U.S. intelligence agencies. Becoming a millionaire didn’t prompt him to revise his relentless demonization of millionaires as greedy. The collapse of the Soviet Union, several American economic booms, innovative technological revolutions, the fracking and energy boom, the alleviation of poverty around the world through global trade over the past two generations — none of them prompted him to change much of what he thinks about economics, politics, international relations, or society.”
His 2016 climate platform included many of the elements of the Green New Deal now being championed by politicians such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and climate organizations such as the Sunrise Movement, which was actually founded by a bunch of young Bernie activists.
For example, in 2016, Sanders called for the following and these same planks will be part of his 2020 platform as well:
- Reducing subsidies for fossil fuels and banning fossil fuel lobbyists from working in the White House.
- A pricey carbon tax, banning new fossil fuel leases on public lands and ending exports of natural gas and crude oil.
- No more offshore drilling, fracking, coal mining, drilling in the Arctic, and nuclear power.
- Establishing a nation-wide environment and justice plan.
- Investing in renewables, energy efficiency, upgrading buildings and infrastructure, and more.
Remember, Sanders supported communist dictator Fidel Castro and he refuses to call Maduro a communist dictator. That’s because he shares their totalitarian views. Socialism isn’t freedom… it’s slavery and communism-lite. It always ends in want, destruction, death, blood, and chaos. In the end, that is what Sanders truly stands for.
Getting rid of fracking is a means to an end for him. Bolshevik Bernie wants to put an end to American freedoms and bring full-throated Marxism into power here.

Sanders To Cut Staffer’s Hours To Pay $15 Min Wage – This Is His Plan For America
It should be glaringly apparent what a flaming, red hypocrite comrade Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is. He has demanded a $15 an hour minimum wage and more unionization for years. He has unionized his workers and is now paying them $15 an hour – he’s also cut his staffers’ hours to compensate for this move. Note to Sanders: that’s not what your supporters wanted.
The union contract that Sanders negotiated resulted in a flat annual salary of $36,000 for field staffers. In a normal 40-hour work week, that would pay about $17 per hour. But some staffers say they work up to 60 hours a week, meaning their pay ends up being about $13 per hour. Thus, Sanders will limit staffers’ hours to ensure they get at least $15 an hour. In the end, this means they will make less, not more working for the elderly socialist. Doing Moscow proud.
“We look forward to continuing those discussions and obviously are disappointed that some individuals decided to damage the integrity of these efforts before they were concluded,” said Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir in a statement to Newsweek. “As these discussions continue, we are limiting hours so no employee is receiving less than $15 for any hours worked.”
Do these guys realize just how bad this makes them look? I doubt it… self-awareness is not their strong suit, to say the least. It never is for communists.
Bernie Sanders says his campaign will limit the hours staffers work so they are paid the equivalent of $15 an hour. “I’m very proud to be the first presidential candidate to recognize a union and negotiate a union contract,” he told me. https://t.co/IBJdMiIIIu

From The Daily Wire:
“Shakir also told Newsweek that the campaign had offered to give field organizers a raise — to $42,000 annually, but the offer was rejected because staffers would have had to work six days a week. That salary also would have forced them “to pay more of their own health care costs,” Newsweek reported.
“The Des Moines Register reported that Sanders complained that staffers were going to the press instead of keeping their concerns internal.
“I’m very proud to be the first presidential candidate to recognize a union and negotiate a union contract,” Sanders told the outlet. “And that contract was ratified by the employees of the campaign, and it not only provides pay of at least $15 an hour, it also provides, I think, the best health care benefits that any employer can provide for our field organizers.”
“It does bother me that people are going outside of the process and going to the media,” he added. “That is really not acceptable. It is really not what labor negotiations are about, and it’s improper.”
I can't stop thinking of how stupid this is. Limiting hours so you can raise wages has literally no effect on how much your employees make. Only benefit is you being able to say you pay them $15 an hour. Beyond cynical. https://t.co/UdlxUBIhvA

“Sanders had previously expressed his dismay with press leaks ahead of his trip to Iowa this weekend.
“We are disappointed that some individuals have decided to damage the integrity of these efforts. We are involved in negotiations. And some are individuals that have decided to damage the integrity of that process before they were concluded,” he said.
“What Sanders is experiencing is exactly what he wants to foist onto millions of Americans and their employers. His staffers were salaried, but hourly workers will also see their hours cut in order to ensure they’re paid $15 per hour. As for negotiations, those demanding better working conditions routinely go to the press. They also sometimes hold strikes that are guaranteed to get media coverage. For Sanders to complain about how things are going in his campaign shows he hasn’t truly thought through the consequences of his policies.”
This reminds me of that take about how farmers in the USSR had more vacation time than people in the US now.
The point of raising the minimum wage is that so PEOPLE MAKE MORE MONEY, not make the same amount of money and have 3 days off a week, you dolt. https://t.co/QZlu9cNtDD

What’s a socialist to do? They want higher pay and free healthcare. In fact, they don’t really even want to work. They want their student loans paid and wages given to them whether they earn them or not. These people are worthless and hopeless. Sanders would set the minimum wage at $15 an hour for all Americans causing unemployment to soar if he got the chance.
Sanders’ minions are not happy and conservatives are savaging him over this:
“For the first time in his life, socialist Bernie Sanders practices economics and, buddy, the results are hilarious,” wrote columnist and humorist Stephen Miller. He added: “Why won’t millionaire Bernie Sanders, who owns 3 homes, instead of cutting hours, pay his staff a living wage? People are starving.”
Texas Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw lambasted the discord in the Sanders’ campaign and says it is beyond parody: “So does this fall under the category of hypocrisy, irony, or poetic justice?” Crenshaw asked. “All three? Can’t make this stuff up.” Lol.
“This situation is an instructive example of the downside of more than doubling the minimum wage,” wrote The Blaze’s Aaron Colen. “Companies don’t just suddenly get more money to pay employees. They have to make tough decisions; usually either cutting hours or worse, cutting staff.” Gee, reality bites… doesn’t it Bernie?
“This is just *chef’s kiss*.” Ben Shapiro wrote, “In which Bernie Sanders learns about economics.” Too true, except he’ll never learn.
Speaking on “America’s Newsroom,” Charles Payne said Sanders “blew a hole in his own $15 an hour minimum wage argument,” adding that he is paying his staff “what the market would bear.”
“There is a maximum amount of time you can work, some people may lose their jobs, I think Bernie may actually blew a hole in his own $15 an hour minimum wage argument,” Payne said.
“Needless to say, I think Bernie learned a valuable lesson, and by the way, his campaign doesn’t generate revenue.”
No, he didn’t. Of course, Sanders sees this as some form of communist morality… not a dollars and cents issue. And that is exactly why he will never be president thank goodness.

General Hospital Star Asks Ivanka If Her Daughter’s New Puppy Is A Nazi Yet
It seems that the left can’t ever stop their lunatic behavior. Here we have a woman who we’ve never heard of claiming to be a star. She wants her 15 minutes.
It’s amazing how the left connects having a dog to being a Nazi and that America never had a border until President Trump got elected. This is how stupid these people are, folks.
These people are getting worse every day. Their hatred for Trump literally has them foaming at the mouth. This psychotic behavior is only strengthening our side. Just wait until the landslide victory in 2020.
Soap star Nancy Lee Grahn reiterated her disdain for the Trump family in a tweet posted Sunday, smearing White House Senior Advisor Ivanka Trump as a Nazi after she posted a picture of her family’s new dog, Winter.
Trump tweeted a photo of her family’s newest furry addition – or what she called “Arabella’s birthday dream come true” – in a tweet to her 6.7 million Twitter followers Saturday. Grahn pounced and went on the attack.
“How darling. I see you skipped a rescue and went straight to an Aryan breeder. Does it sit and sieg heil yet?” Grahn said, making a clear Nazi reference.

The General Hospital star has long been an outspoken opponent of the Trump family. Last week, Grahn called Trump an “evidenced lunatic” who has “mortifyingly not been impeached yet” due to Republicans in the Senate.
Shouldn’t have to say this, but the ONLY reason an evidenced lunatic has mortifyingly not been impeached yet is entirely due to every Republican in the Senate sans 1. They are what’s wrong with us.

Last month, the Santa Barbara actress came under fire after posting a picture of kids in migrant shelters wrapped in aluminum blankets and blaming it squarely on the Trump administration. Some social media users, however, quickly noticed that she cropped out the date, hiding the fact that the photo was taken during the Obama administration.
“Trump administration is forcing children 2 sleep on cement floor with an aluminum blanket & lights on all night,” she tweeted. “Sarah Fabian from DOJ argued in court that it was good enough & soap was unnecessary. Companies making 750 a kid a day to torture them.”

Grahn eventually admitted that the photos were taken during the Obama administration but refused to back down.
“Had I noticed that, I would’ve clearly realized that it was from the Obama administration because he, unlike Trump, didn’t have a policy of separating children from their parents. Only a monster would do that,” she tweeted in part.
— Nancy Lee Grahn (@NancyLeeGrahn) June 25, 2019
Trump signed an executive order ending family separations last June, telling reporters: “We’re going to have strong, very strong borders, but we’re going to keep the families together.”
“I didn’t like the sight or the feeling of families being separated,” he added.
Despite the cries from Grahn and other left-wing celebrities, the “cages” the left frequently refers to were set up and utilized by the Obama administration.
