Despite a victory in the New Hampshire primary on February 11, 2020, the Sanders campaign should be a bit worried.
Sanders had a relatively lackluster performance this year compared to his 2016 efforts in the New Hampshire primary.
Here’s the facts:
In 2016, Bernie walloped Hillary by 22% in the Live Free or Die state.
That meant that the 2016 Sanders campaign received 152,193 votes according to the state’s official totals.
But flash forward to Tuesday night, Bernie only clocked in right at 76,000 votes.
That’s a loss of almost 80,000 VOTES!
There’s more people from 2016 who decided to vote against Sanders, or not vote at all, than voted for him in 2020.
Bad news for the Bern, no matter how you slice it.
The energy that many Sanders boosters were boasting about heading into the primaries appears to not be present looking at 2020 results so far.
However, President Donald Trump’s performance during the primaries was a whole different story:
Trump received a NET INCREASE of over 20,000 votes from his primary performance in 2016 to 2020.
President Trump received 85.6% of the vote, with 129,696 people voting for him in total.
All in all, things look good for President Trump’s re-election bid.
Nevertheless, he should not let his foot off the gas and continue campaigning on immigration restriction and call out the radicalism of the modern-day Democrat Party.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
