Bernie Sanders Corrupt daughter ‘considers’ running for office!

 

Bernie Sanders’ Stepdaughter Considers Running For Mayor Of Burlington, Vermont

Reads the headline… No where does the NY Post mention that she was funneled $500,000 as part of the Burlington college ripoff perpetrated by her mother. Another corrupt spawn of a Democrat who defies the laws of gravity with their hubris. Her mother and she should be in jail. Like mother like daughter…….. here is what she says first and then  B-ville plays it again post:

“In my mind it’s time to consider a new direction for Burlington and a new vision and I am exploring whether it’s the right time for that, if there are others who feel the same way and also if it’s the right time for me,” Driscoll said.

Driscoll volunteered for Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign. She also founded the Vermont Woodworking School in Fairfax and is a mother of two, both factors she is considering as she weighs a run.“Mostly in that I am deeply committed to issues of social and economic and racial justice, and that for me, sitting on the sidelines when it feels there’s work to be done, is very challenging,” she said. “And that’s my primary motivation. … I really very much want to jump back into local politics

Bernie and Jane Sanders College corruption? Funneled daughter $500,000

How did Jane Sanders funnel more than 500k to her daughter’s for-profit woodworking business during her tenure as President of Burlington College and get away with it?

What hasn’t been discussed in all the noise about Burlington College’s closure is how Jane Sanders (supported by the same Board of Trustees who approved the land sale) openly funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars from Burlington College’s operating funds to VT Woodworking School — a for-profit business started by her daughter Carina Driscoll in 2007.

Despite scattered reporting on this story, Jane Sanders has never been asked to explain why Burlington College suddenly needed to start a woodworking program in 2009 – the very same year the VT Woodworking School expanded to its current site in Fairfax, VT taking on considerable expense of a new building and needing to find students to fill its cavernous 15,000 square-foot space. Nor has anyone asked if the College did what would normally be required in this process by creating a Request For Proposal (RFP) to solicit bids in order to guarantee that the process was fair and open to other entities competing for this business.

This appears not to be the case given that the College was also funding another program at the same time (as reported in the College’s tax returns) that directly benefited the children of Jonathan Leopold, a board member.

According to the College’s now defunct website, Carina Driscoll was listed as Director of the Woodworking Program at Burlington College on the Faculty and Staff Directory in 2016. It is unclear how the College was able to hire her on staff while she remained the owner of VT Woodworking — directly benefitting from the College’s funding of her for-profit business.  Read more

Does Bernie Sanders steal his neighbor’s Washington Post?

So it looks like our Commie Bernie  has long fingers. He got kicked out of a commune for being lazy. I guess our multi-home Sanders can’t afford the paper:

Sticky-fingered socialist Bernie Sanders is apparently stealing his neighbor’s Washington Post subscription, as any good socialist might do.

In perhaps the funniest and most fitting news of the year, WMAL radio host Chris Plante told his audience of a story he’s heard about the elderly senator from friends. A man living next to Sanders apparently called the Post to complain that he was hardly ever receiving his subscription. After an investigation into the matter took place, it was realized by the paying customer that it was his neighbor, Senator Sanders, who was stealing the paper right from under his nose. Daily Wire 

Here’s Plante’s story via Red State: 

Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane when they are in Washington DC, live in this house on Capitol Hill, ok? Part of their vast real estate empire. They’re like wannabe Trumps with their real estate holdings.

The next-door neighbor…their neighbor on Capitol Hill called the Washington Post and told the Washington Post that they were cancelling their Washington Post subscription because their very expensive Sunday Post stopped showing up. Not there this week, last week, the week before, then it was there one week but the week before it wasn’t delivered, so I’m cancelling my subscription to the post because your delivery person never gets to me. I’m paying for it but it never gets to me. Keep reading…

Sanders: FBI investigation of his wife and him. ‘It’s Trump’s fault’

Does Bernie really believe we will drink his Kool-Aid? After doing two posts which clearly show a nasty business he blames Trump now? The College was in better shape at the time she left? And why did she leave? She was fired and took $200K on the way out the door. No, Bernie, when you run as a candidate, people look into your affairs. Your not off the hook either. Turn about is a tough. You are quick to go after Trump. In case you missed my posts..a refresher.

Will Trump end up causing the downfall of Bernie and Jane Sanders?

The tasty part is it will be the Donald who may play an important part in the outcome. He has yet to appoint the U.S. Attorney for Vermont who will be deciding how to proceed.

Here is a good summary of the issues that I have added.

Matrix, a stalwart reader sent this additional gem to add to this shiny object. Not only does it look like Bernie and Jane were involved in a fraudulent land deal, the daughter was raking in the dough as well, not to the benefit of Burlington College:

Will Trump end up causing the downfall of Bernie and Jane Sanders?

A little reported story is the looming criminal case of Jane Sanders and her hubby’s involvement in possible loan fraud. Did Bernie grease the wheels? Jane mislead the lender as to the amount of pledges given to Burlington College’s purchase of land?

Collects $200,000 as she goes out the door of a bankrupt college

The tasty part is it will be the Donald who may play an important part in the outcome. He has yet to appoint the U.S. Attorney for Vermont who will be deciding how to proceed. Politico gives a kind interpretation of the facts that I have read elsewhere, but this will do for today:

“There’s an implication, and from at least one individual, an explicit argument that when they called for an investigation into Burlington College that you used your influence to secure a loan from People’s United—”

 The senator cut him off.

Politico is reporting that Sen. Bernie Sanders and  his wife Jane Sanders have “lawyered up” as the federal investigation into her role in the collapse of Burlington College continues:

From Politico:

Now, Senator Sanders and his wife are taking the case more seriously. Jeff Weaver, Sanders’ longtime top political adviser who heads Sanders’ political organization, Our Revolution, confirms to Politico Magazine that Bernie and Jane Sanders have lawyered up. The couple has retained Rich Cassidy, a well-connected Burlington attorney and Sanders devotee, and Larry Robbins, the renowned Washington-based defense attorney who has represented I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby and disgraced former Rep. Bill Jefferson, to represent Jane Sanders in the matter.

Now here’s the best part. It seems that President Donald Trump will be instrumental in deciding the Sanders’ fate:

Now, President Donald Trump’s Justice Department is handling an investigation that will proceed at the discretion of a U.S. attorney of Vermont that Trump has yet to appoint.

The facts of the case are complicated. They are steeped in Vermont’s peculiar educational culture and the incestuous financial system in Burlington, Sanders’ hometown and political base, where some Sanders backers worry that with Trump’s Justice Department calling the shots, the facts—intricate as they are—may not determine the outcome.

No wonder Sanders hates Trump so much. Read the entire report here.

It’s 1968 again – a look back at the Democratic Convention

Fox news reports that the Democrats are working on more rules to control the angry mobs – er, those who are feeling the Bern. Meanwhile Philadelphia is ramping up to give lots of space to the Bernie folks convention time. The clip visits some of the old wounds back in 1968 that cost the Democrats the election. Here we go:

Philadelphia has approved four demonstration permits in support of Sen. Bernie Sanders at the July Democratic National Convention — including a large rally planned near the convention’s epicenter.

One of the permits is for an event consisting of four days of all-day rallies at FDR Park in support of Mr. Sanders. The city said it expects 30,000 participants, and organizers said in an interview they hope turnout will be much higher.

The park is adjacent to the Wells Fargo Center, where many of the Democratic National Convention events will be held — raising the possibility of a large demonstration in support of Mr. Sanders just steps away from where delegates will officially select the Democratic nominee. A growing number of Democrats are concerned the conventioncould turn out to be divisive and disorderly due to activities planned by Sanders supporters.

The city has also granted permits to three smaller demonstrations at Thomas Paine Plaza, a few miles from the Wells Fargo Center. The city says it expects 2,000 to 3,000 participants at those events.

Hillary Clinton Lies Again, Says She ‘Did Not Put Down Conditions’ to Support Obama in 2008

She just can’t keep herself from lying. Does she even know the truth anymore? One has to ask as she apparently can quite stridently deny the truth of the matter. She just can’t help but be willing to do most anything for money. Hillary was a bit snarky through her whole interview with Rachael Maddow. This piece is just making the blogosphere and worthy of holding her feet to the fire. Here we go:

Hillary Clinton said that Bernie Sanders should follow the example she set in 2008 when she threw her support behind then-Sen. Barack Obama without putting down “conditions,” but a look back to 2008 shows that Clinton refused to step aside until Obama promised to help her with her campaign debt. Below a partial transcript:

“Let’s look at what happened in 2008, because that’s the closest example,” Clinton said. “We got to the end in June and I did not put down conditions. I didn’t say, ‘You know what, if Senator Obama does X, Y, and Z, maybe I’ll support him.’ I said, ‘I am supporting Senator Obama, because no matter what our differences might be, they pale in comparison to the differences between us and the Republicans.’”

“That is what I think one does,” Clinton concluded. “That is certainly what I did and I hope that we will see the same this year.”

Although Clinton said she threw her support behind Obama without preconditions, a stroll down memory lane indicates she strayed from the truth.

Reports from early June 2008 show that the Obama campaign’s willingness to assist Clinton with the massive campaign debt she had amassed was a major sticking point when it came to her political surrender.

Top Clinton adviser Harold Ickes told major campaign donors that Clinton “was unlikely to pull out of the race until the issue of her massive debts was resolved,” according to a June 3, 2008, report from the Daily Telegraph, which also indicated that negotiations were in progress.

“It’s not about the vice-presidency or any other position she might get,” a source close to a donor said. “It’s about the money—in particular the Clinton family money.”

“The Obama campaign might have to reach deeply into its well-stocked coffers in order to secure the full support of Mrs. Clinton and her husband Bill in the November general election,” wrote theTelegraph’s Toby Harnden.

The Clinton campaign was more than $22 million in debt at the time, and $12 million of that was money Clinton had loaned to the campaign herself.
