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

GOP could have Stopped Supremes Kagan and Sotomayor with a filibuster but did not

Looks like the GOP as usual stepped up to the Democrats plate both with Kagan and Sotomayor. No filibuster threatened, and better yet, we gave them the number to push it over the top. 60 votes are required to stop a filibuster. We had the numbers. With Kagan five GOPers sent it over the top, with Sotomayor the number was nine. They didn’t insist for another candidate. So who says fair is fair.

Kagan Confirmed Supreme Court – Vote Count tally Breakdown 63-37  July20, 2010

56 of the 57 Senate Democrats voted to confirm Kagan. The only Democrat who rejected the confirmation was Ben Nelson (D-NE). Both of the Senate independents, Joe Lieberman (ID-CT) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT), voted to confirm Kagan. Additionally, five Senate Republicans broke party lines and voted to confirm Kagan; these were Richard Lugar (R-IN), Susan Collins (R-ME), Olympia Snowe (R-ME), Judd Gregg (R-NH), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC). Final count: 63-37. Five Republicans and one Democrat defected.

How Republican Senators Voted on Sotomayor – Interactive Graphic …

How Republican Senators Voted on Sotomayor. An interactive breakdown can be found at the New York Times August 6, 2009.

Judge Sonia Sotomayor was confirmed by the Senate in a 68-to-31 vote on her nomination to the Supreme Court. All Democrats and independents present voted yes (Senator Edward M. Kennedy, who has been battling cancer, was not present for the vote). They were joined by 9 of the 40, or 23 percent of the Republicans in the Senate. This is less than the proportion of Democrats and independents that voted for John G. Roberts Jr. — half of Democrats and independents supported his nomination to Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in 2005. But it is more than the proportion that voted for Samuel Alito in 2006 — just 9 percent of Democrats and independents supported his nomination to the Supreme Court. Below are details on how Republicans voted on Judge Sotomayor.

Joe Manchin: ‘Due Process is what’s killing us now’

Joe Manchin is supposedly on Hillary Clinton’s short list for VP. He ought to fit right in with the agenda of saying to hell with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. No Joe, its Islamic Terrorists that are killing us.

America 1776 — 2016: We had a good run. “Let’s just throw out the Bill of Rights.” Oh, that pesky Due Process. What. The. Hell. Here’s Senator Joe Manchin on “Morning Joe” Thursday having a sad over those pesky “due process” rights keeping Americans off of secret government lists designed to curtail their Constitutional rights. When Sen. Manchin was sworn in as a Senator, he took an oath to support and defend the Constitution, or did he forget about that? Damn Bill of Rights get in the way of Leftist Activists all the time.

 

Kasich pleads for Democrat’s vote

Here is a hint for flipper (Kasich) as I call him, flapping his hands all around.You have to get through the GOP primaries. First. Before you can be the nominee. Second hint. Most primaries are not open. So keep appealing to the Democrats and your flippers will flip no more. Here we go:

Branding himself as a compromise candidate, Kasich said Sanders is too hot, and Clinton too cold – but the Ohio governor is just right.

“So, I’m still an undecided voter, but I’m choosing between you, Hillary, and Bernie Sanders,” the woman said in the C-SPAN 3 video posted to YouTube. “So my question is why should I vote for you in the Democratic primary?”

Kasich approached the woman in the audience to get “up close and personal” before going into his spiel.

Kasich reiterated that his only boss is his wife, then transitioned to explain that he’s a great compromise between Clinton and Sanders, likening himself to the perfect porridge.

“We got to get hope back in the country again, and Hillary is too brittle and Bernie is way out here on the extreme,” Kasich told the young woman. “I’m the right porridge. One of them is too hot, the other one’s too cold, but I got the right temperature.”

Bill Clinton on Debate Commission Board

Bill Clinton– why not exit stage left and get off? I am getting as sick of hearing about Bill Clinton as his little lady. I am sure he has/will have no involvement. It is a farcical primary for the Democrats anyway. Here we go:

A conflict of interest could be afoot at the Commission on Presidential Debates if Hillary Clinton gets the Democratic presidential nomination. Her husband, former president Bill Clinton, is an honorary chairman on the commission leadership board.

“The general is a completely different issue. It’s not part of [the primary debate discussion] at all. My guess is there will be change in the general election debates too. I think the commission has highlighted that too,” Ben Ginsburg, GOP lawyer and current liaison between the Republican primary campaigns and network sponsors told The Daily Caller Sunday night. “I think the Annenberg working group talked about a lot of different options in the general election debates and it will ultimately be left up to the candidates and the nominees to decide.”

The other Democrat who is an honorary chair is former president Jimmy Carter. The only two former Republican presidents who served as honorary chairmen of the commission, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan, are deceased. It is unclear, however, how Carter and Clinton function in these roles.
