LEFTIST AUTOPHAGY: Bernie Sanders calls out MSNBC over campaign coverage.

Bernie Sanders went ballistic at NBC and MSNBC execs ahead of the Democratic debate this week — jabbing one top TV exec repeatedly in the face with his finger and accusing the networks of offensive negative coverage.​

Surging Sanders stormed through the walk-through for the Las Vegas debate, singling out one top producer at the end and aggressively sticking his finger in his face. One shocked witness said, “Bernie marched right up to NBC and MSNBC’s head of creative production and began jabbing his finger right in his face, yelling, ‘Your coverage of my campaign is not fair . . . Your questions tonight are not going to be fair to me.’ ”​

Communists take the idea of controlling the media quite literally.

Trump campaign pledges

Eliminate the federal debt in 8 years well I guess that is one sure way to get re-elected

Create targeted child care tax credits - tax bill didn't do that

Cut taxes for everyone well everyone is a tough challenge for anyone

Bring back manufacturing where did it go

Grow the economy by 4 percent a year - is that every year or just one year

Dramatically scale back the EPA - what a clean environment for the kids takes a back seat to business to the tune of more pollution less regulation

Change the vaccination schedule for children - for the kids Dr Trump has spoken

Renegotiate the Iran deal - well if they do not deal then we assassinate government official as oil prices start to rise with the sanctions placed on Iranian oil

Eliminate the estate tax - how self serving is that for a 73 year old guy who has kids and money

Balance the federal budget 'fairly quickly' - see eliminate the federal debt in 8 years.

Make no cuts to Social Security - tough to cut the budget and reduce the debt but hey there is a proposal to cut social security disability plans -- but the disabled have it tough enough already and he is picking on them

Slash federal regulations - executive order for every new regulation you now have to cut two old regulations. Even Spock can find fault in that logic

Place lifetime ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections - I guess he wait until the next election to work on that one

Ensure funding for historic black colleges - well he has kept that promise at the expense of other colleges which are not black

Add additional federal investment of $20 billion toward School Choice - well still working on that but he will have to slash 2 old regulations

Achieve energy independence - well when the US known oil reserves is about 10th on the list and the top 2 known oil reserves dwarf Americans oil reserves at least 90 percent respectively. Good luck with that one

Op- Bernie will bankrupt the country and ruin us all with communism.

You- Yeah! Well! Trump didn't get school choice done! So there!

You’re an idiot.

Trump campaign pledges...

Create targeted child care tax credits - tax bill didn't do that...
Parents get twice as large of a tax credit for each child. The GOP's tax overhaul bill doubles the current child tax credit from $1,000 to $2,000 per child under age 17, and allows parents to receive up to $1,400 as a refund, if the credit is larger than their federal income tax liability.
Changes to the child tax credit: What it means for families
Back here after Trump took over:

... Dramatically scale back the EPA - what a clean environment for the kids takes a back seat to business to the tune of more pollution less regulation...
We remain one of the cleanest countries in the world. The idea that we are harming children's health is ridiculous, though it is true of China, and yet the Left backs China in every US/China point of contention.



Renegotiate the Iran deal - well if they do not deal then we assassinate government official as oil prices start to rise with the sanctions placed on Iranian oil...
Do you check ANYTHING before you proclaim it? Oil prices have FALLEN since Trump withdrew from the Iran Deal.



And don't cry over dead Iranian terrorist generals. Apparently he thought he was going up against Obama in Benghazi, and all of a sudden it's "what's that buzzing noise I hear?" Then 70 well used goats.
Trump hasn't cut retirees Social Security.
Only the unnecessary ones.
...Ensure funding for historic black colleges - well he has kept that promise...
Yup!
... at the expense of other colleges which are not black...
Trump hasn't cut college funding.
That's a great investment.
As charters grow in cities, black student performance rises, according to a new study.

Do charter schools ‘lift all boats’? Here’s what the latest research tells us
Achieve energy independence - well when the US known oil reserves is about 10th on the list and the top 2 known oil reserves dwarf Americans oil reserves at least 90 percent respectively. Good luck with that one
We're vastly more energy secure and that higher level of U.S. energy security has resulted in a more secure world. I have no problem with importing from the Americas.

Domestic Oil Production has been improving very nicely under Trump.

Will the Less Insane sectors of the Democrat Party organize as Never-Sanders Democrats and fight his candidacy right through the general election? Maybe put up a 3rd Party alternative for so called reasonable Dems?

Given his Russian backing, the FBI probably needs some FISA warrants.

Child tax credits only help those with children under the age of 17 and get phased out as income gets higher
The Child Tax Credit can be worth as much as $2,000 per child if the other factors are favorable but it fluctuate depending on other variables.

granted it helps some but if you have no children in that age range it does not help. Also over certain incomes then there is none. As you get close to the phase out number it significantly decreases to 0

Well if EPA standards are improving the air index

why is he trying to scale it back ???
and the comment about the children is a joke but the real issues is how unhealthy air affects people who are sensitive to it for various health reason

The goal should be for our children in future generation to have clean air not to allow companies to pollute because they don't give a hoot except making more money. That is the point not



Yeah they fell for a few months but are rising and even your chart shows that

Oil production under Trump has nothing to do with Trump, its the improve techniques or oil production that is increase production.

it will be maintained under any president until they they can no longer get to it as history shows.

This oil boom stared in 2010 and has steadily risen each year

As a matter of fact in 2019 it finally beat all previous records in the last 50 years. Yet is it sustainable

So what? You claimed that Trump did not give parents any assistance on child care, you are clearly wrong.
... Well if EPA standards are improving the air index why is he trying to scale it back ???...
He's not. Obama's misnamed "Clean Power Plan" was never in effect.

The Clean Power Plan grossly exceeded the statutory authority of the EPA, violated the principles of cooperative federalism, and double-regulated existing power plants, which the Clean Air Act prohibits.

Laurence Tribe, Harvard University professor of constitutional law and a “liberal legal icon” who served in Obama’s Justice Department.

Tribe stated in testimony before Congress:

“EPA is attempting an unconstitutional trifecta: usurping the prerogatives of the states, Congress, and the federal courts—all at once. Burning the Constitution should not become part of our national energy policy.”​

It’s no surprise that more than half the states in the country petitioned the Supreme Court to pause implementation of the regulation, and judges obliged, issuing a stay in 2016. Trump's simply made it a moot issue, leaving standards where they were throughout the Obama Administration.
... and the comment about the children is a joke...
No it isn't. Your claim's a joke. Out of the world's 184 nations, 174 have cleaner air than the US including nearly are of Europe. We have fabulously clean air,


... The goal should be for our children in future generation to have clean air...
It is, they do and they will.
... Yeah they fell for a few months but are rising and even your chart shows that
No, prices did not "spike" as the Never Trumpers said they would when Trump pulled out of the Iran Deal in 2018. That's a fixed fact of history, and prices are not "spiking" now.
