TANTRUM! Bernie Sanders press secretary, CNN analyst Symone Sanders detained at airport after outburst, report says
( Fox News ) Symone Sanders, a CNN political commentator and former press secretary for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., was reportedly detained by police after an outburst Thursday morning at LaGuardia Airport.
Sanders, 28, was in line at the security checkpoint when TSA agents asked her to step out of line, PIX 11 reported. Sanders reportedly started to curse “in front of patrons and young children.”
She was accused of disorderly conduct and given a summons, according to PIX 11.
Sanders has had issues at airports in the past.
American Airlines called the police on Sanders last year after an incident while she was trying to check her luggage minutes before a flight from Los Angeles, according to Essence.
Sanders tweeted she didn’t want to pay full price for a new ticket despite being a frequent flier of the airline. The incident apparently prompted customer service representatives to call authorities.
After the incident was apparently resolved, Sanders said she made the flight on time, but “didn’t understand why” the airline called police.
On Sunday, socialist Bernie Sanders went silent on Meet the Press when asked about the billions of dollars of bonuses given to working Americans due to GOP/Trump tax reform.
NANCY CORDES: Senator, the President is giving his first State of the Union address this week and polls show that his biggest achievement so far, the tax cuts, are now gaining in popularity as some of these big companies hand out thousand-dollar bonuses. Are you glad that these people have more money in their pockets?
SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS: Are we having a technical issue here?
NANCY CORDES: Senator, can you hear me? All right. It appears that we have lost our audio connection with Senator Sanders. We’ll take a commercial break and will be right back.
The federal probe into a 2010 land deal orchestrated by former Burlington College president Jane Sanders, wife of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has deepened. VTDigger has confirmed that a grand jury has compelled sworn witness testimony in the case.
The Vermont U.S. Attorney’s office has interviewed at least one witness before the grand jury to determine whether indictments should be handed down.
Former Burlington College board member Robin Lloyd says she testified for about an hour on Oct. 26 before a grand jury at the federal courthouse in Burlington.
Paul Van de Graaf, chief of the criminal division for the U.S. attorney’s office in Vermont, questioned Lloyd about her role as the development chair of the college’s board of trustees during a period when Sanders was collecting donations and pledges for the purchase of a $10 million city lakefront property.
Lloyd, who is publisher of the progressive website Toward Freedom, kept copious board meeting minutes as the development chair for the college. In the interview with Van de Graaf, Lloyd said he “was focused on what I knew about who had been approached for contributions.”
“I helped provide a timeline of what happened — and when — in terms of development,” Lloyd said. “It was general questions about donors, and money coming in.”
Jane and Bernie Sanders have vehemently denied any impropriety surrounding the land deal.
Jeff Weaver, a spokesman for the Sanders and former campaign manager, told Seven Days Sunday night, “We have absolutely no reason to believe that there is a grand jury empaneled to examine Burlington College, Jane Sanders, or any aspect of Dr. Sanders’ service as president of Burlington College. As best we can tell, the current news reports are simply recycling an account of a government interview of a witness from several months ago. Nothing new here.”
Lloyd’s appearance is the first public confirmation that the federal government has compelled a grand jury.
- The witness claimed two of 20 jurors were wearing ‘peace T-shirts,’
- Of 20 jurors, 11 are African-American
( Daily Mail ) A witness who testified before a federal grand jury that handed down indictments of top Trump associates says the president can’t get a fair shake and compared the jury room to a Bernie Sanders rally.
The witness claimed two of 20 jurors were wearing ‘peace T-shirts,’ and popped off on the jury pool to the New York Post‘s Page Six.
‘The grand jury room looks like a Bernie Sanders rally,’ the witness said. ‘Maybe they found these jurors in central casting, or at a Black Lives Matter rally in Berkeley,’ said the witness.
‘There was only one white male in the room, and he was a prosecutor,’ said the source.
The person said of 20 jurors, 11 are African-American.
That figure closely mirrors the racial composition of Washington, D.C., which is 49 per cent black. The jury pool, if the source is accurate, is 49 per cent black.
In some cases, D.C. has had difficulty getting juries to match the racial composition of the city, the Washington Post has reported, due to difficulty getting poor minorities to answer the call for jurors and a higher proportion of young black men being eligible due to criminal convictions.
‘That room isn’t a room where POTUS gets a fair shake,’ said the source, using shorthand common in the White House for and D.C. insiders for the president.
WAT? BERNIE SANDERS: ‘MAKE GOP MIDDLE CLASS TAX CUTS PERMANENT’ – TED CRUZ RESPONSE, ‘LET’S DO IT IN JANUARY!’
- Bernie Sanders: “We should have made the tax breaks for the middle class permanent“
- Ted Cruz: ” I agree,
@BernieSanders — let’s make the middle-class tax cuts permanent. Join me, we’ll co-sponsor legislation (I’ve already got it drafted) that does exactly that, and we’ll get it passed in January!”
CNN host Jake Tapper asked America’s socialist uncle Bernie Sanders if 91% of the middle-class receiving GOP tax cuts is a good thing despite tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy.
“I understand you’re not a fan of the tax bill, you don’t like the large corporate tax cut and you’re not happy with the tax cuts for the wealthy, but according to the Tax Policy Center, next year 91% of middle income Americans will receive a tax cut – isn’t that a good thing?” Tapper asked.
Sanders shocking answer:
“Yeah, it is a very good thing, and that’s why we should have made the tax breaks for the middle class permanent,” Sanders said, adding that most of the benefits would go to the “top 1%” after ten years.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded to Sanders’ interview on Twitter, offering to team up on legislation to make the middle class tax cuts permanent in January.
@BernieSanders — let’s make the middle-class tax cuts permanent. Join me, we’ll co-sponsor legislation (I’ve already got it drafted) that does exactly that, and we’ll get it passed in January!
Former Marine and Islam convert Everitt Aaron Jameson was arrested by FBI for planning a Christmas terror attack on Pier 39 in San Francisco.
According to his Facebook page, which has just been deleted (below is a screenshot), Jameson is a Bernie Sanders supporter and follower of many Islamic Facebook pages including “Arabic Islamic Academic”, “The Muslim Street” and “Islam’s Dank Meme Stash”.
Jameson reportedly converted to Islam two years ago. He said he was inspired by ISIS and the Manhattan truck attack.
ABC News 7 reported:
Officials have stopped a man who reportedly stated that “Christmas was the perfect day” for a terror attack in San Francisco and “did not need an escape plan because he was ready to die.”
We’ve learned the FBI has arrested a man by the name of Everitt Aaron Jameson from Modesto. They say he wanted to target Pier 39.
According to FBI documents, Jameson picked out that location because he “had been there before and knew it was a heavily crowded area.” He added that it would be easy to “funnel” people into an area where he could inflict casualties.
The documents also say Jameson was posting and liking pro-ISIS and pro-terrorism content on Facebook.
And according to the documents, the suspect was discharged from the Marine Corps. He had prior military experience with a “sharpshooter” rifle qualification and expertise with rifle marksmanship.
( Washington Examiner ) Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., responded with a firm “yes” to the question of whether she believed the Democratic National Committee was rigged to favor the presidential nomination of Hillary Clinton.
“Very quickly senator, do you agree with the notion that it was rigged?” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked.
Yes,” Warren responded
Former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile said that that the Clinton campaign gained control of the presidential nominating process to defeat Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., according to a book excerpt published by Politico on Thursday.
Brazile cited “proof” on an agreement she discovered between two Clinton campaign funds and the DNC, in which money would be exchanged for control over DNC finances and strategy.
