The Democrat Party establishment is losing its marbles.
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders appears to be the favorite to win the nomination after strong performances in Iowa and New Hampshire, which is making Democrat bigwigs uncomfortable.
#1 Rahm Emanuel: Putin and Trump are picking their opponent.
#2 Joe Biden: ‘The Russians don’t want me to be the nominee,; Biden said on CBS News’ Face the Nation,’ later adding, ‘they like Bernie.’
#3 James Carville: ‘Right now, it’s about 1:15 Moscow time. This thing is going very well for Vladimir Putin. I promise you. He’s probably staying up watching this right now. How you doing, Vlad?’
#4 MSNBC’s Joy Reid regarding the tremendous enthusiasm of Bernie’s voters: ‘Democrats need to sober up, and figure out what the hell they’re going to do about that.’
#5 Democratic House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn: ‘If you know how well we did the last time and look at the congressional districts, these are not liberal or progressive districts. These are moderate and conservative districts that we did well in. And in those districts it’s going to be tough to hold on to these jobs if you have to make the case for accepting a self-proclaimed democratic socialist.’
#6 NPR’s Maria Hinojosa: ‘As somebody who has been around for a while…I want receipts. What has he done in all his time to actually deliver for Latino/a voters?’
#7 Pete Buttigieg: ‘Before we rush to nominate Senator Sanders in our one shot to take on this president, let us take a sober look at what is at stake for our party, for our values and for those with the most to lose.’
#8 Joe Lockhart: ‘In any political campaign, candidates need to know what they stand for, and who — or what — they’re up against. At this stage in the game for Bloomberg, that enemy is not Trump. It’s Sen. Bernie Sanders and the election calendar.’
#9 James Carville: ‘If you’re voting for him because you think he’ll win the election, because he’ll galvanize heretofore sleepy parts of an electorate, then politically, you’re a fool.’
#10 Hillary Clinton: ‘Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,’ Clinton said of Sanders in a documentary about the campaign, released this year. ‘He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.’
#11 MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: No pundit on the left has been more critical of Sanders than MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. In the aftermath of the vote in Nevada, Matthews actually compared the Sanders campaign ‘to the Nazi invasion of France in 1940…
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews’ take on Sanders has received the most attention. He stated, “I was reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940,” Matthews said during MSNBC’s live coverage of the caucuses on Saturday. “And the general, Reynaud, calls up Churchill and says, ‘It’s over.’ And Churchill says, ‘How can that be? You’ve got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?’ He said, ‘It’s over.’”
Additionally, Matthews even hinted that the Democrats should probably wait four years and then select “a Democrat that they like.”
“I’m wondering whether the Democratic moderates want Bernie Sanders to be president. That’s maybe too exciting a question to raise. They don’t like Trump at all. Do they want Bernie Sanders to take over the Democratic Party in perpetuity?” he stated.
“I mean, he takes it over, he sets the direction of the future of the party — maybe they’d rather wait four years and put in a Democrat that they like.”
Matthew’s comments represent the growing anxiety among liberal elites with Sanders’ rise.
The Boomer managerial wing of the Democrat Party is a dying breed, with the more culturally radical Democrats represented by Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ilhan Omar are ready to take the reins of power.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis
After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”
Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus”
Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails.
— Greg Abbott (@GregAbbott_TX) March 30, 2020
Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”
Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.
In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.
With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.
Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.
A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.
This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.
Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
